Manager Tonkin, of ihe company, has met j  the miners  as local unions,  and   had  several conferences with them, and he  is now Heating with the District Union  Little information can be had of a reliable character as to the chaiacter of  the negotiations  in   piogiess  between  the mineis and the company, but the  feeling here is rapidly gaining  ground  that a compromise settlement, acceptable to both sides of the  controversy,  will be effected. .It is also certain that  the contract to be entered into will be  binding for a considerable period.  ���HOIJ.VIX  CKKKNWOOD  CHAM) I'OKKS  SANDON  4  STOVES AND RANGES  We have the largest and  most complete stock of Stoves  and Ranges in the city, and  we want to run stock down,  For the next two weeks all  of our stock of Stoves and  Ranges will be sold AT COST.

Wednesdays   meeting  of the  city  fathers was remarkable for  one  thing  in particular, and that was that no bills  weie presented ��� something that has  not happened''before in   many, many  moons.    Very little business was dans  acted,-with tlw exception of the reading of a ''Communication Irom the Phoenix Trades and Labor Council, reques:-  in,> that the council pass a by-law  establishing  the  customary   pay in  ihe  camp for laborers on any railway   thai  may be built in the city limits.   As the  council was legally advised that such a  by-law would probably   not   hold, the  communication was'received and filed  The Council''will   probably   have the  snow cleaned fiom  some of the worst  sidewalks in the city soon.  He Spent   Several   Days  at   the   Granby  Mines,   -..  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Co., arrived in the city  from Spokane last week Friday, staying here until Monday, when he returned to Spokane, and in a few days  will proceed ' to Montreal, where the  head office of the compar.y is located  The visit was merely one of his  usual trips of inspection, and while  here be went thiough the underground  workings of the Old Ironsides mine.  He also turned his hand once more���  lor the first time in two" years���to  signing the monthly payroll checks of  the company in the absftnee of the assistant manager, H. N. 6aler. >  Last Saturday night the Granby  smelter had 36 carloads, or over 600  tons, of coke in sight. A little was  coming in from the Dunsmuir collieries on Vancouver Island, but so little  that not more than two furnaces at the  smelter could be operated. The C.  P. >R. is unable to deliver the coke  accoiding to agreement", 00"account of  the strike that it has on hand with its  freight cleiks and handlers.  Mr. Graves had great hopes that the  Fernie strike would be'settled shortly,  as a result of work of the cornmis  sion appointed by the Provincial  Mining Assjciation recently at Victoria. If it was not so settled, the  coal miners' strike would likely tie up  the quartz mining industry. However,  this, would be overcome in time, and  more coke than ever would be delivered this year, because of .the increase  in the number of ovens, and this summer would probably begone' of the  best yet experienced in the Boundary.

Bradish  and Miss ressie A. DeSpain, daughter  of Mis. S. A. McConnack, were married at the Windsor,hotel in Greenwood  Rev. J.   I).   P.   Knox,   pastor  of the  Methodist church, officiating.     A.  E  H. Clark stood   up   with   the groom  through   the  trying  ordeal and Miss  Maud UeSpain, sistei of the bride, was  bridesmaid.     The   happy  couple le-  turned to Phoenix   the same  evening,  when they were  seienaded   in the accustomed  style  by   a  tin tcan band.  They have gone  to  housekeeping on  Brooklyn avenue.  Cut Force at Lime Quarry.  The force of men at work at the  lime quarry being opened at Fife, near  Cascade, has recently been cut down  to ten or a dozen men on account ol  the closing of some of the furnaces at  the Trail smelter. A large quantity of  lime has already been quarried, ready  for shipment, and as soon as the  smeller is enabled to resume operations in full, thiough icceipt of coke  shipments, the lime will be shipped.  The railway siding to the quarry has  been completed,  Boundary's    February    Ore  Tonnage Not Small.

This evening another hockey match  will be played at the Phoenix rink, the  contestants being the teams of Greenwood and Phoenix. The game will be  called at eight o'clock, and the following is expected to be the line-up of each  side:  Phoenix.-    Position.   'Greenwood.  Biner   Goal McMilla  Cole Point Blaine  Chinch .. C.

The correct returns of.the ore shipments from the various Boundary mines  are at last available, and show that, in  spite of many drawbacks in the  shape  of fuel   for the  smelters,   the second  month of 1903 shows up quite as wel  as the first month, having a  total, for  the 28 days of February  of over 52,-  000 tons.    The Granby mines shipped  about 9,000 tons more  than   in  January, but a number of the  others did  not send out as  much   ore  as'in the  previous   month,   notably the.-. Mother  Lode,   Snowshoe,   B.   C.   mine  and  Emma.      However,   the  grand  total  runs over  100,000  tons  for   the two  months, the figures for each   mine for  each month being as follows:  lline. lanua'ry,   February.

Last Tuesday was the monthly payday at the Granby mines, when over  $30,000 was distributed in this camp  by the one company for wages alone,  being one of tbe largest paydays had  here in many months. There were over  350 pa>  checks.  Today or Monday is the regular  monthly payday at the Snowshoe mine,  the 15th of this month falling on Sunday.  Large Mercantile Deal.  One of the largest mercantile transactions tor many months, that has taken place in the Boundaiy, was consummated the other day, when the Hun-  ter-Kendrick Co., Ltd., bought out the  Grand Forks branch of W. R. Megaw,  and sold Mr. Megaw their branch store  at Sandon in the Slocan country. Tbe  transaction entailed the paying of a  considerable amount of cash by the  Hunter-Kendriek Co, as the Megaw  stot k was much larger than the Sandon stcck. Chas. D. Hunter, the  Phoenix manager of the Hu,nter-Ken*  drick Co., returned last Saturday from  .iandon and Grand Forks, after completing the details of the sale.  At the election of officers held last  Saturday by the members of Phoenix  Miners' Union No. 8, Leo McMullen  was chosen president and John Rior-  dan financial secretary. Mr. Riordan,  who was re-elected, has held the office  for several years.  Nelson's daily, the News, has all the  news that is news. At your newsdealer's, or by mail for 50 cents per morjth,  When Chas.-'ArDesBrisay, rigUtaf  way agent of the Great Northern and  the V., V. & E., arrived in the city-  last week with Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the latter railway, they began  to take steps to secure the needed  right of way through the lower end of  the city, where the road comes in.  It is said that two routes of getting  up the gulch are ��� surveyed, after the  city limits are reached. One of these  crosses Dominion avenue where the  Union hotel is located, and the other  a little lower down. It probably depends on the cheapest route, so far as  securing the property is concerned, as  to which will eventually be selected.  Mr. DesBrisay secured options on  some of the property last week, and  went out again this week, to return in  a few days.  This week J. B. Macaulay signed  the deed to a Diece of land where the  railway will cross a portion of his  ranch just below the city, the consideration having been arranged, and  others were approached. Where buildings are in 'he way, the railway company makes a proposition to move  the building to a new location that is  satisfactory to the owner, and last Saturday 9 man who is in the business of  moving buildings came over from  Rossland to make estimates on that  kind of work.  It has not been announced yet just  what the definite route will be to get  to the Granby mines, nor where the  depot will be located, but Chief Engineer Hogelah'd, of the Great Northern, from St. Paul, is expected to arrive in Phoenix next week, when the  definite route of the line in the city  will be decided upon. It is understood that the line will come up the  bed of Twin creek, back of the buildings on the south side of Dominion ave  nue, the depot to be located probably somewhere on the property of the  Dominion Copper Co., close to Dominion avenue.  Jay P. Graves, general mauager of  the Granby Co., was in consultation  with Mr. Kennedy last Saturday, as  to the best way to get to the oie dumps  of the Granby mines, and some announcement in regard to this will  doubtles's'jbe obtainable after the visit  of Mr. Hogeland.  The route of the line into Phoenix  is so circuitous, in order to secure the  low grade decided upon, that something like 20 miles of rock work will  be done within a few miles of this  city, requiring a large force of men,  with a commensurate payroll, for  several months to come, after the  work is started.  The B. C. mine has, discontinued  shipments of ore on account of the  closing of the Sunset smelter.  On the Blue Jay Edwards and Morrison are still driving on the long tunnel to tap the ledge at depth, which  they expect'to reach in a short time..  Last Monday the Snowshoe mine  sent out its last ore for the present.  Shipments will be resumed as soon as  the Sunset smelter can ret a coke sup-  Ply.  During the month of Febiuary the  Granby smelter treated 35,463 tons of  ore, and sent out an average of nearly  a car of blister copper daily from the  converters." - -   -  For the first two months of 1903 the  Granby mines shipped 66,661 tons of  ore. With plenty of coke the shipments will be increased at least 50 per  cent on the average.  The reverberatory furnace at the  Granby smelter, installed over a year  ago, was first used in the month of  February, when everything was being  run at full capacity, before the ceke  famine occurred.  This week the Sunset smelter was allowed to giow cold, both to place sorr.e  of the new machinery and because tho  coke supply was about exhausted.  When it resumes probably two and  perhaps three furnaces will be put in  blast.  At the Mother Lode, in Deadwood  camp, a force of about 25 men only is  being kept busy on development work  duiing the enforced shut down of the  company's smelter, until coke supplies  aie once more being received. Only  the mariied men, it is stated, were retained.  REPORTED  FROM VICTORIA  To the Local Branch of the,  Mining .Association.     .  .

P. R, Engine.  HAPPENED AT FISHERMAN THURSDAY  Last Monday evening a meeting of-  the local branch of the. Provincial Mining Association was held'for the pur-,  pose of hearing the reports ot the dele--!  gates who attended the general- meeting recently held at the capital of the  province.  Judge \V. R. Williams, one of the  delegates, gave a general report, covering most of the proceedings, so far iis,  they were of interest to-this section,  all of which have been printed before,  while Mayor Rumberger, J: W. 'Astley,,  James Punch and Henry Heidmari,  who were also delegates, also told something of what had occurred at the big  gathering at Victoria.  The consensus of opinion  was. that.  the meeting was an ' unequivocal, success, and much  good to the  province  generally, especially to the mining in- ,  dustry, will eventually come of it, especially if the association continues to  be conducted along  the conservative.,  lines along on which it was started out. ���  Phe   Phoenix  delegates were also  particularly pleased at the cordial re- ������  ception   tendered  them  and- all the .  others by the residents and  business,  men of Victoria.

The strike ol" the United Brotherhood ot" Railway Employees on the C.  P. R., inaugurated at Vancouver some  two weeks ago, is on worse than ever,  and men all along the western lines,  according to reports, have gone out in  sympathy. It includes freight clerks  and handlers. Late last week it was  announced that a settlement was in  sight, but such proved not to be the  case, and the railway has announced  that it will tight it out, that it will receive freight shipments for all points.  The union men at the coast are in  sympathy with the stiikers, and are doing everything to aid them. On the  Kootenay and Boundary divisions it is  said that a, number of men, about 100',  are out also, including those at Nelson,  Rossland, Grand Forks and Eholt,  William Whyte, vice-president of  the C. P. R., is said to be on his way  from Montreal, to make an attempt to  settle the strike, which is claimed to  have been brought on by an attempt  on the part of the railway to crush the  union.   Fine cigars are the kind that you enjoy���dpn't forget that when you drop  m at Albin's l^ews Depot.  Last Thursday afternoon, Harry  Bell, a brakeman employed by the C.  P. R., was ciushed to death at Fisherman siding, a few miles below Eholt.  Bell slipped from the locomotive of the  tiain, and before he could recover himself the engine's wheels had crushed  his joung life out. He was a brother-  in-law of Conductor Hutchinson, well  known in the Boundary, and was a  man of about 24 years of age.  Last summer Bel! was employed at  the Snowshoe mine fiom the 3d 01  June till the 4th of July, and later went  into the employ ot the C. P. R. as  brakeman, tunning oil the pr.ssenger  tiain in and out of Phoenix. Occasionally this crew would woik on the  ore trains between Eholt and Grand  Forks, and it was while doing this that  Bell met his death.  Hell's remains were taken to the undertaker's at Greenwood the night of  the accident, and today they will be  sent to Grand Forks, and thence to  Spokane lor burial, wheie the young  man's mother resides.  Cascade Power la Qreeawaad.  Manager Warren, of the Greenwood  Electric Co., has been in the city this  .week.with a~force_- of, men, who are-  stringing an extra set of wires through  the city, for the purpose of connecting  the electric power from Cascade with  the Greenwood lighting system. The  old pole line, erected thiee years ago,  between the two cities will be used  again, not having been in use for two  or three months, since Phoenix secured, its power from Cascade. It is expected that Greenwood, like Phoenix  and Grand Forks, will be able to enjoy  the Cascade power some time early  next week. About a ton of No. 6 insulated copper wiie is being used in  stringing the additional line through  the city.  Curling Results Iris Weeh  At Piioe  six���Monday.  Greenwood.  Phoenix.

In a  general way he knew of the excellent  work being done  by the hospital and  its nurses, but it took a practical demonstration in his own lamily to really  hi ing it home to him, and today he is  one of the most enthusiastic in piaise  of the way in whicn the  institution is  conducted, no matter Irom what point  it is viewed.     He does not hesitate to  tell the stoiy, either,  especially if he  thinks it may possibly do some good.

B. of R- E.  itrilte'in this great and glorious west.  It seems to be nearly unanimous thai  the mining.association that recently  met at Victoria filled a long felt want,  and has the opportunity of doing much  good for the industry in this province.  Fourteen cent copper would look- a  great-deal better to the people of'the  B6tindary if the'' coal "strike was over  and the three smelters were running at  fiill'capacity���about 2,300 tons of ore  perday;         _, ,     ;  James Breen, who is well known in  this camp, from his connection with  1 the'Dominion CopperCo., hss trouble  on his hands - at - his * new ��� smelter at  Croftonj'on'Vancouver Island. One  of his partners,. David B. Fothering-  ham, is suing him for an accounting.  Just how the government is to postpone .the .inevitable and make an ap:  peal to,the people at an early date is  not" clear to the average petson. However, it is given out at Victoria, as a re-  sujt,of a recent caucus, that an attempt  - will be made to carry pn business. And  Joe Martin still "saws wood."  The personnel of the Alaskan boundary ] comniission does not suit'the  people of Canada a little bit, so far as  t&" Americans are concerned. There  is a great hue and cry over the matter,  but what are we going to do adout it ?  We've got to; take what the mother  country gives us, whether we like it or  not. .  The Nelson Tribune asserts that the  Nelson Daily News is owned or controlled by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Co. F. J. Deane, of the News) states  that the coal company has nothing to  1 do with the News, and thathe.is the  owner. Mr. Deane ought to know what  tie is talking about, and John Houston  evidently thinks he does.  '��� We notice advertisements of western  brokers in eastern journals, guarantee-  ing dividends on mining shares, and  some of the companies are supposed to  operate in British Columbia. It would  be interesting to know how much such  a. guarantee is worth. , Meretorious  . companies do not resort to such tricks  to dispose of shares.  The city-of' Victoria, since it has  successfully handled two or three large  ^Gnventions/is making all the.capital  'possible out of it."' We do not blame  Victoria at all, a�� Several thousands of  dollars are left in the city by each convention. But for the general convenience of residents in this province a  mainland city would be belter, Vancouver, for instance.  ���   ,'|t��tbe general belief that the commission now at Fernie, for the purpose  of\ieltling the coal miners strike if  possible, will have their efforts crown-  ed^ith. success.   The more one studies  the'eauses of the strike, .the more one  is impressed -with the idea that both  sides can be brought to agree with a  little giving and taking by each, When  this is done, a long time agreement  ' should be made.     Too much is now  dependent on the whims of either miners or management in the coal fields to  ��llf��V the entire country to be tied up  foV'tti&yb conipariuyely speaking,  With this in his mind he walked into an office the other day, and told of  what he knew of the needs of the management of the hospital, and told it so  impressively that one gentleman 'requested him to have the hospital management send the bill  tpJiuaJbr-$5w  worth ..ot'ihlngs  that  wrre  at   once  needed.  ��M  This is merely a sample of what one  man did, who seemed to only just learn  the really beneficial aspects of lliis institution that is  right  among us,  and  which he was supposed to be generally  informed about heretofore.    If there is  another  individual  who   leads  these  lines that would   like  to- put a  little  money wheie it will biinj> the biggest  kind of interest in the   way  of doing  good to our fellow men, here is an opportunity worth taking advantage of���  for the,hospital is still in need ol many  things..   1. L. Martin,  the secretary-  tieasurer', will be only too  pleased to  furnish further particulars.  WM.  All kinds of "get rich quick" schemes  are being furnished *o a waiting public  nowadays. -   One of the latest to operate through the mails in this section is  a "bucket shop" in St. Louis, which is  sending   out  its  circulars broadcast,  showing the immense  sums that__can  be  made by  speculating in  corn or  something  else.   It  is.interes-tii.g to  note that  Hector McRae,' who was- a  well known broker in the palmy  days  of Rossland, is connected with this institution.    He also operated in mining  matters in the   Boundary, and is now  kindly-giving his old friends a chance  to get in on the "ground floor."   What  fools these mortals be,  as Puck would  ien-.ark.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  He Still Lives ��� The premier ol  B. C. evidently thinks that he has  Prior rights to everything in the province.��� Led^e.' ~  Partv Lines���Premier Prioi'sbest  coutse is to facilitate an early general  election upon party lines By so doing  he would regain the confidence of his  party friends, and earn the gratitude of  the Literals. Nothing that 'he can do  will prevent the coming campaign being waged upon party lines, but he can  by judicious conduct now bring about  what the whole province wants under  conditions'that will presage a. fair test  of public opinion.���Nelson News,  j B- C MINING  ,  A two stamp mill is to  be installed  on the Pilot; nea'i Ymir, this spring.  The Giant mine  owners, Rossland,  contemplate driving an 800-foot tunnel.  Rosslarid's ore shipments last week  were 8,035 lons< makinga total of 68,-  079 for the yeai thus far.  It is claimed that work will be started on two concenttatijn plants at  Rossland inside of two months.  Work on the ore shoot recently encountered in the No. 8 workings at the  Payne is proving the ore body to be of  great size and richness.  It is reported that the charter of the  Kootenay Cential railway has passed  into the control of the Estella Mining  Co. of Southeast Kootenay.  The tolal output of Extension mines  for Febiuaiy was nearly 45,000 ton'--.  It is expected that the foreign shipment for March will make a recoi d for  Ludvsmith.  The machinery for a complete 10-  stamp Fraser & Chambeis gold mill  |jiaa-b����tT-3hip|5ed to the Eva- mine at  Camborne, Lardeau, and as soon as it  arrives at Comaplix it will be hauled  to the property and installed. '  The Le Roi No. 2 company h.ive  ordered a two-unit Elmore oil concentrating plant, which is now being built  in England by the Fraser & Chalmers  company. This plant will have a capacity of 50 tons pei 24 houis, and consists of two units of 25 tons each.  A compiessor plant has just betn  shipped in to the Blue Biid mine, near  Deer Paik. The property is already  supplied with a mill having a capacity  ol 25 tons per day, and ne.\t week the  management expect to have the stamps'  dioppiug. The concentrated product  will be shipped to the Trail smelter.  The Crofton smelter has already le-  ceived its first shipment of copper ore  from the Yukon, the  Grafter mine at  Whitehorse having shipped seveial hundred tons and promised to keep steadily at it.     This makes the Grafter the  first shipper of the Whitehorse district,  l'he owners claim that they have  10,-  fuoo tons blocked out on the first level.  FiomTiout Lake an itnpoi la nt strike  is reported on the   L.  B. group.     In  the shaft now being sunk on the L. B.  claim, a depth of 34 feet was reached,  when a shoot  of ore twenty inches in  w.idth was encounteiedr���Eight inches  of this is solid gray copper, with assay  values of $16 in gold, $300  in  silver,  5 per cent copper and 70 per cent lead.  Charles J. Andun, one of the furnace  foien-.en  at  the  B.   C. Coppei  Company's smelter, Gieenwood,  soon  after became into the Boundary bought  several acres of land  adjoining - thai  held by Robert Wood  and   known as  the Rock Creek coal lands.  Last week  Mr. Andren sold  his  holding  to the  Ashnola Smelter, Limited,  which  recently acquired Mr. Wood's land.   It  is stated that men are at work developing the coa} showing.

At the fust annual meeting of the  Piovincial Mining .Association, recently held at Victoria', many matteis came  up for consideiation, and a number of  the most impoitant weie passed by  icsolution. The following digest of  those of greatest moment totliispait  of the piovince has be^n piepared for  ready reference:  Abolish Two Per Cent Tax.  Resolved, That the government aud  .legislature of'the province of British  Goluitibia are respectfully uiged to  abolish the so-railed two percent win-  einl'tax upon ihe output of mines, be-  <aii<-e of iis iiijtiiious effect in testiict-  ing and repiesting mining low giade  ores, and because of it's effect in discouraging the investment of outside  capital.  Resolved, That:with respect to the  lesoliition passed this morning dealing  with the abolition of the "two per cent  tax," this convention shall not be -1111  derstoodas 'being-'opposed to a fair  and equitable taxation of the mining  industry.  Townsite Lois on Mineral Claims.  Ralph Smailes and G. W.  Gaunce,  of Greenwood, introduced   the following, which carrieJ:  Resolved, That this association favors amendment.tO' the Mineral Act,  that where a mineral claim has been  subdivided into townsite lots and a  plan recorded, the mineral tights only,  without any right to the surface, may  be offered for s de for taxes, and upon  such sale bejng made that the government have power to vest any surface  rights that pieviously appertained to  such mineral claim in the municipality  within which it is situated, as to streets,  lanes and highways, and in the lot  owneis as 10 the recorded lots owned  by them respectively.  Attempt to Settle Coal Strike. .  Resolved, That a delegation consisting of the clubman, \V. CI. Gaunce, I'".  Keller, A. C. I-lumerfell, II. Seaman,  M. McAndiews and C. Foley be appointed to proceed to l'einie to' meei  the management and employees. of the  Crow's Nest Pass .Coal'company* and  endeavui to bring about a settlement  of the strike; and that the expense of  such delegation be paid from the funds  of this association.  Strike Commission.  Resolved, That the government of  lintish Columbia be and is heieby requested to forthwith appoint a commission of three members, whose duty  it .'hall.be.. to examine as fully as possible into the existing relations of employer and employee engaged.in the  mining industry in this province, and  to gather data on the question of -. capital and labor therein employed; said  commission to meantime be regarded  as a conciliation board in any mining  labor troubles that may occur, with a  view to the settlement and prevention  of such trade disturbances.      ..  Chris Foley .and G.H.Lugrin brought  in the following resolution:  Resolved, That the government be  respectfully requested to constitute said  board of conciliation by appointment  of the following: (a) One practical  mine manager, (b) One practical mine  worker. (c) A chairman mutually  agreed upon by the other two.  This board shall ha,ve tlie power to  collect information tinder oath, and its  further ditty shall be to make prompt  report from time to time to the minis.'  ter of mines, through   whom the press  and the public may be informed of the  situation.  Open Coal Lands Reserve.  .Whereas, the coal and coke supply  from the Crow's Nest Pass coal mines  has proven quite inadequate to meet  the requirements of the smelters and  mines in Biitish Columbia, whereby  the output of the mines, particularly  the copper mines of the Hotindary and  the gold copper mines of Rossland, during the past and present year, have  been and are much curtailed;  Theiefore, be it resolved that the Do  minion government be requested to take  steps for the immediate opening of coal  mines on the pait of the 50,000 acres  held by it in Southeast Kootenay, under such provisions as will insure a  large supply of coal and coke" at an  early date, and at a reasonable price.  Endorse Silver-Lead Miners,  Resolved, That this  convention assembled at Victoria,  heartily  endorse  the resolutions passed .by the silver-  lead miners at Sandon on the toth of  December, 1902, and that a copy of  this resolution be telegraphed to the Dominion ministers at Ottawa.  Stronger Copper Market.  The copper, market shows not the  slightest signs of weakning, either at!  home or abroad, and with prices on,  practically ... a' 13-cent basis lor lake!  brands, sellers are as firm as ever in  their views, says the Western Mining  World. The present streiigth,_ot7the  liielal is not a matter that has come  about over night, as a result of manipulation.' On the,contrary, the situation has been shaping towards strength  for two weeks past, and present prices  are purely the result of the operation  of the natural-law. of supply and demand. .Close students of the situation  maintain that the market has by no  means reached its highest point for the  year, but aver that prices, 611 the con  trary, will continue to harden until :  i 4-cent level or better has been reached.  Instead of making the reporter of an  eastern paper say: /'Promoters that  prey," the compositor made him say:  '���Promoters that pray." Of the two,  the compositor was the-more unjust.

Anecdotal.  In an after-dinner speech at the London Savage Club recently on the purity  of the English tongue, Winston Churchill remarked: "I have written fiv*  book*, (he same number as Mooea���but  E will not press the comparison,"  ' Charles II. once granted an audience  to the courtly Quaker, William Penn,  who, as was. tote custom, entered the  royal presence with his bat on. The humorous sovereign quietly laid aside his  own, which occasioned Penn's enquiry:  "Friend CharleB, why dost thou remove  thy hat?" "It is the custom," toe replied, "in this place for one person only '  to remain covered."  Eben Jones, the crabbed millionaire  lumberman of Minnesota, hired all his  mill-hands himself. One day a Swede  applied to the irritable old mstn.-'and  secured a place on the saws. As he  was leaving he said: "Mester Tones, In  dees yob you geef me doaller and hallef  a day. Besides dat, do you eat me'or  do I eat myselef?" "Oh, eat yourself!"  replied the old man. "I have dyspepsia."  . Phil May, the noted English cartoon- -  1st, went into an oyster saloon In. the  East End of London one day and ordered a dozen natives, when another  man entered and gave a- similar order,  enquiring anxiously of the proprietor it  the oysters were fresh. VPre��h!" echoed  the bivalve merchant. "Fresh! Why"  ���indicating Mr. 'May with a wave of  his hand���"the first oyster that gentleman took up bit his lip!"  An Irishman who was charged with  stealing a watch from a fellow-citizen,  stoutly   denied   the   impeachment   in  court, and brought a counter accusation against his accuser for assault and  battery committed ���with a frying-pan.  "Why did you allow   the prosecutor,  who is a smaller man than yourueVt, to  assault you without resistance?" asked  the Judge;  "had you nothing In your  hand to defend yourself with?"   "Be-  dad, your honor," said Pat, "I had his  watch, but what was that against a  frying-pan?"  The "Scotsman" tells of a Duiblln  man who insisted that a Scotch friend  should.stay at his house instead of a  hotel; arid Jiept him there for a month, .  playing the host in detail, even to  treating;,him to all .places of amusement, paying all the cab fares and the  rest...: When the 'visitor waa returning  to Dunedln, the Irishman saw him  down to the steamer, and they went together to have a last cigar. "Now,  look here," said the man from Dunedln.  "I'll hae nae malr o' this. Here ye've  been keepin', me at your hoose for a  month, an' payin' for a' the amusements and cabs and so on���I tell you  I'll atan' nae malr o' it! We'll just hae  a toss for this one1." ^  <;  One of the eccentricities of that most  penurious of pedagogues, Dr. Barrett,  was that he 'hardly ever appeared outside the walls of Trinity College, conducting his modest: menage there, with  the help of a decrepit old housekeeper,  who attended to all his wants, even to  dally: fetching <rom.a: nearby dairy .the  .  half-pennyworth of milk needed in the  establishment.   When one frosty morn-  :  ing, Mary, going on this errand,-slipped  arid broke her leg, the worthy 'doctor  for the Srst time in;years left thel'ool- '.���  lege to pay her a visit in th'e, hospital. it  On reaching her cot,: it is related that  his sympathetic greeting was:'"Hello,   -.  Vary; so you broke your leg; I suppose  you broke the jug, too, but where Is th'e  half-penny 1"   , ��� . :.7' ..'..7:':."j ..-   ,  ;  - Mr. Justice Mathew of England is a  man of such mild and kindly exterior,- -  with such gentle voice and. rnanner.o  that almost invariably he gives the I'm- *  presslcn of "being a simple country gentleman rather than a profound lawyer. ,  This was evidently the idea of. a pro- ���  fesstonal seller of painted; birds, who '  some years ago met 'him In the neighborhood of the law courts, and, exhibiting one of his birds, asked him' if he" J  could tell to what species It belonged.  The Judge stopped, examined the bird  with great care, pretended  to, admire ?.  the gaudy plumage, examined it again,'  and then remarked: "I do not think I ;  have ever seen a bird exactly like this, r  but. Judging from the old proverb "that'  'Birds of a feather flock together,' I ;  should say it was a jailbird."  ��� '���:-������     ��� ������- '      ���  ���':���   ���'���      i  ' ���     si m     ��� ��� sii.���  Far Reaching Influence. :  "0'  The proi>erty now occupied by  tlie postoffice, and known as the  PHOENIX, B.

"These novels "used to circulate in'a neighborhood till they had  been read by every boy and had fallen,  to pieces through handling. They fired  the ambition of the youngsters, set  them to practising shooting and riding, ajid sent many of them to the West  in search of adventures. Some soon  returned to their homes, others became .  bad men and were killed In time, but'  the great mass of them; too proud to  return home, created the vigorous,  wideawake population of our Western '  States. I have talked to hundreds of  our Western pioneers about the causes  wthich brought them west, and a majority of them admit tha.t dime novels  had more to do with it than anything  else."  A Heretic  "The man is a driveling idiot," said  the trust magnate.  "A plumb fool," agreed the coal  baron.  "An unmitigated lunatic/' assented  the steel king.  "Crazy as a March ihare," asseverated  the great financier.  "A hopeless imbecile," asserted the  pmver In Wall street.  "Absolutely and utterly devoid of  sense," chimed in the senator.  "As brainless as a barrel," added the  corporation lawyer.  "But what has he done?" asked the-  ordlnary citizen.  The crowd-was convulsed with laughter.     '   "     V  "Why, he says," they replied, choking and gurgling, '^he actually says  that money isn't everything!"���''Smart  6et"  Might be Worse.  One day, Mackintosh, having vexed  Wm by calling O'Coigly "a rascal,"  Parr immediately rejoined, "Yes, Jamie, he was a bad man, but he might  have been worse; he was an Irishman;  but he might have been a Scotchman;  he was a priest,' but he might have  been a lawyer; he was a republican,  feut he mleht -have been an apostate."  Advertising-  is the lever that moves the business world ��� so the men who  really know, who are conspicuous for their success, assert.
