HAPPtNED LAST WtDNESDAY MORNING  Surgeon Took Twcnly-lVcc Sllch��, and Ihe  Injured Man   Will  Probably   Recover���  .     Alcoholism Said lo be Ihe Cause.  - : Wednesday morning a man named  Patrick Eakin attempted to commit  suicide at the Cjranby hotel b. slashing  hip thioat'wiih a razor. If he had not  been discovered in time, ho would  probably now be wearing a wooden  overcoat. ���  The ghastly, deed wan' committed  about 9 a. m. in the room which he  occupied in the Granby hotel. Shortly  thereafter the potter discovered Eakin,  with his throat cut almost from ear to  ear, and rapidly blending to death. A  hurried call was sent to Dr. G. M.  Foster; who responded promptly, band'  aged him up as best he could and removed him to the Phoenix General  Hospital.  An examination showed a terrible  gash by the-sharp instrument, which  tequiied twenty-three stlches to bring  it together. Fortunately, no veins were  severed, although the windpipe was  slightly cut, requiring one stitch. Since  the would-be suicide has been in the  hospital lie has had to be constantly  watched, but is recovering.  Eakin lus been a resident of this  camp, on and off, for two years or more.  His last employment was with the  Phoenix Water Supply Co,, when the  new well was being made. About  thiee weeks ago this work was finished,  and since then he has not had work.  He foimeily worked in ths mines here,  but not lately. lie was known to be  addicted to drink, and it is thought  while in this condition and despondent  he made the attempt on his life. He  is about 38 years of age, a blacksmith  by trade, and said to be a good me  chanic when sober. He had expected  to go to the old country as soon as he  earned enough, to settle up the estate  of a relative who had recently died.  New Stage Une.  S.F. Royer, the well known livery,  man, of Grand Forks, was in the city  Thursday, arranging for local matters  in tegard to the new stage line, which  will start operations on June 1st. The  line will run from Grand Forks to  Greenwood daily, Sundays included,  by way of Phoenix, making close con-  nec ions with the Great Northern trains  both ways. Stage will leave Phoenix  at 7 a. 111., and arriving at Phoenix on  the letutn tiip from Grand Forks at 7  p. m. Arrangements have been com  pleted by Mr. Royer to carry Great  Noithem express for Boundary points,  and the Spokesman-Review will also  come the same way. Relay stations,  have been provided for at Fourth of  July creek and Phoenix. McRae  Hios. & Smith are the Phoenix agents  for the line. Mr. Royer should do a  pretty good business over this route,  especially after railway constitution on  the Great Northern branch to Phoenix  starts.  MIDWAY CELEBRATION NKT M0NDAV.  Many Boundary Towni Will Be Represented  '" There. /  Next Monday the annual Victoria  Dav celebration of the Boundary will  lake place at Midway, as usual. .Special preparations have been made by the  celebration committee to give every  owe a good time, and theie will doubtless be a large attendance* from, every  point in the Boundary.   7  As far as Phoenix is concerned,  nearly every available horse has been  engaged for the day, andyAgent Clark,  of the C.

TO RELIEVE CROW'S NEST SHOW AGE  Will be Shipped From Fairfax. Washington-  Three Furnaces Running, Bui Fourth to  Be Placed In Blast Next Weik Sure.  The coke shortage from the Crow's  Nest country is bothering all the Boun-  daiy smelter managers not .1 little, and  as the Greenwood Times puts it, they  are rapidly getting prematurely grev  headed. Efforts to get coke from other sources are still being made, and  with sortie little'success.    The Granby  Co. has secured some 2,000 tens from  p. ���     ���  Fairfax, Washington, a little coal town  in the Cascades, not far from Carbonado. When this begins to arrive, it  will temporarily relieve the strain, although this amouut, to a concern that  can use about 200 tons daily, will not  last long.  In order to get it to the Granby  smelter as promptly as possible, the  Great Northern and Kettle .Valley  tracks are to be connected at Grand  Forks.  As yet but three furnaces have been  in operation at the Granby smelter, although it was hoped weekly that enough  coke would be on hand to warrant the  blowing in of the fourth. It is expected, however, that by some time next  week, the Washington coke .will have  begun to arrive, which, with the shipments being received from the Crow's  Nest, will probably admit of the entire  battery of four furnaces being run, for  a lime atany rate.  LOCAL JOTTINGS  JOINED UNITED MINE WORKERS.  Four From I'ho.nix Passed.  Last October the government boilir  Inspector held an ' examination lor  engineers in Greenwood, under the  new act. Word has recently been received that four of those who tried  from Phoenix were granted second  class certificates. First class certificates are only granted to those who  have held the second class documents  for six months. Those who passed  successfully weie Gabe Eustis, James  Petrie, R. C. Crowell and F. L. Cock,  all of whom were then employed ai the  Granby mines. Mr. Eustis and Mr.  Crowell have since left here. In addition a number of permits to engineers  were granted.  Secretary John Kiordau, of Phoenix  Miners' Union No. 8 left for Denver  on Wednesday, to attend the annual  convention ol the Western Federation  of Miners,and also that ofthe American  Labor Union, to be held at the same  time and place. He expects to be absent, (en or twelve days.  Crow's  Nrs(  Colliery-Employees   Make   a  Change.  . The miners' union of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co'.s collieries have  recently withdrawn their allegiance  from the Western Federation of Miners  and have affiliated themselves with the  United Mine Workers of America,  says the Fernie Free Press,  For some time past this-''movement  has been on foot and last week organizer Bonsfield, ofthe U. M. W. of A.,  arrived in Fernie to discuss the matter  with the men. A meeting oCGladstone  Union was held and the visiting organizer addressed them. The union finally decided to surrender the charter  of the W. F. of M. and form a branch  of the United Mine Workers;  Mr. Bonsfield in addressing the men  discouraged the principal of useless  strikes. The miners claim that their  change to allegiance of the sister organ  l/atbn will have no bearing on the recent settlement between the union and  the Coal Co., and that the terms of  agreement will be rigidly followed out.  Meetings were subsequently held at  Morrissey Mines and Michel where  similar action was taken, and the three  camps henceforth will be contioiled by  the United Mine Workers of America.  The reason for this change is said to  be (.issatisfaction with the treatment  ace or led them by the W. F. of M. in  the leeent strike. It has been openly  stated that ihe cause of the coal miners  was sold by the Federation and the  present action is largely the result of  strong feeling on this account.  Had a SIOO-House.  J. M. McCloskey, the man who is  totally blind from an accident that occurred in the Knob Hill mine last year,  began his entertainment tour this week,  in an endeavor to earn a living. Monday evening he appeared at Eholt,  Tuesday at Phoenix, Wednesday at  Greenwood, and last night at Grand  Forks. 'I uesday evening's entertainment was a surprise to those who were  present, and Miners' Union hall was  well filled. Mr. McCloskey surprised  his fiiends agreeably in the quality of  the entertainment which he furnished.  The house netted him about $100.  After lecturing in Camp McKinney  next week, he will like'y visit Nelson,  Rossland and other points, Many persons, when they see a man in his condition endeavoring to help himself are  only too glad to lend a helping  hand,  Fogg's Chemicals, Chalk, Pearling  and Rustine foi sale at Boyle's.  There are five patients in the Phoenix General Hospital, all of whom are  progressing favorably.  Miss Tena Grant and Mrs. M?c-  Donald, loimerly of Nelson, B. C,  have taken charge of the Stemwinder  cafe,  W. J. Morrison and James Anderson, owners of ihe Morrison-Anderson  block in this city, were in town from  Grand Forks this week.  James Anderson and Tony Dunham,  of Grand Forks, are making preparations to open their road house at Fourth  of July creek, on the first of June.  Next Thursday the Phoenix Base  Ball Club will give a dance at Miners'  Union hall, the club having decided to  raise needed funds in this manner this  year, instead of by public subscription.  Miss Nora Heiser, sister of Mrs. J.  Bowerman, of ihe Cottage hotel, left  for Berlin, Germany, on Thursday's  train, intending to take steamer at New  York next week.  At the application ofthe Dominion  Copper Co., before the supreme court  in Greenwood, Thutsday, to make  changes of its townsite plat in Phoeuix,  the heating was postponed till certain  affidavits were filed by the company.  A meeting was scheduled for last  night at Cascade for the purpose ol  organizing a Liberal Association. W.  11. P. Clement, of Grand Forks,' a  forcible speaker, was to be the chief  speaker.  'Thursday's passenger train on the  Phoenix branch of the C. P. R., was  derailed ne.ir the No. 3 Snowshoe spur,  the engine running oil on the ties. An  extra side track had to be built that  night so that traffic could be resumed.  Foreman Wright, of the carpenter  force at the Granby mines, has started  woik on the fouudalijns for the new  company stables, which will accommodate 15 head of hoiseswhen completed.  'The building will he 34x60 feet in size.  Removal sale.

Mks. Almstrom,  Lower 'Town, Dominion Ave.  On the Blue Jay the tunnel, being  driven to strike the ledge, is now'in  200 feet. .  During the month of April the Granby mines shipped 25,208 tons of ore to  the company's smelter.  Randolph Stuart expects to begin  work on the Calumet/claim, adjoining  the Winnipeg, in Wellington' camp,  soon, ���;.     ' - .  . President S.'H. C. Miner, ofthe  Granby Co., has been added to the  local board of directors of the Eastern  Townships Bank.  Monday, the day on which Victoria  Day will-be celebrated, the Snowshoe  mine will be closed, but the Granby  mines will run as usual.  It is repotted that Randolph Stuart  has bonded the 'Tip 'Top claim.in Skylark ramp, to some Englishmen, the  stated price being ��\0,000.  At.the Granby mines the force continues to average about .300.men. At  the Mother Lode there are about 75  men, with 14 at the Sunset and 40 at  the B. C. mine.  'I he Boston News Bureau of May  16th contained a statement of the profits, etc., of the Granby Co. for the  month of April that is notable chiefly  for its inaccuracies.  A rich find of tellurideore was made  on the Dvnamo claim, one of the high  grade properties between Phoenix and  Greenwood, this week, the property being owned by Portmann Brothers.    ,  W. H 'Thomas, consulting engineer  for the Mother Lode mine and smelter,  is said to be much pleased with the  bright outlook for his company in the  Boundary, both at the mine and smelter.  On orders from the Trail smelter,  the lime shipments from the Fife quarries have been increased to 100 tons  daily. About 15 men are now employed theie,--under- Foreman Peter M.  Stewart.  Now that connection has been made  with the outside in the No. 3 -tunnel  at the Granby mines, it gives a clear  passage all over the 100 foot level of  the Old Ironsides mine. Men whose  work is on that level no longer use the  shaft, hut merely walk directly to their  work.  Late next week, or early the following week, President Miner, of the  Granby Co., with a party of Canadian  and American directors will arrive in  the Boundary in their special car, on  a tiip of inspection to the mines'and  smelter of the company.  This week the Snowshoe's shipments  again equal the hitih figures of that  mine for last week, 1,680 tons, which  weie the largest in history of the mine.  Double this tonnage could easily be  shipped if the Gieenwood and Sunset  smelters, where the ore goes, could  handle it.  JAMES J.mix  DID NOT COME  Had  Expected  to  Visit  the  Boundary this Week.  IN CONNECTION WITH 8. R. MATTERS  Giand Forks now has a Hive of  the Maccabees, the ladies organization  in connection with the Maccabees of  the World, an organization that has  nearly half a million members. 'The  following officers of the new Grand  Forks branch were chosen: Past Commander, Julia L. McDonald; Commander, Harriet F. Sheads; Lieut.  Coin., Kerstina Iiammer; Rec.Keeper,  Martha A Fisher; Finance' Keeper,  Esther Rodgeis; Chaplain, Clara Donaldson; Seijeaut, Lam a Chappie; Sentinel, I.illie 'Taylor. Picket, Eliza Eyre;  Mistress at Anns, Ii. Meagher.  But Staled thai He. Would Proceed With  Building of the Spar to .he Granby Smeller al cace���Weal to Crow's Nest.   '" "  James J. Hill, president of the Gteat  Northern railway, has been in the west  this week, and had intended , to visit  the Boundary country, where new railway construction is pending to Phoenix. " At the last minute, however, he  founcl it impossible to make it at this  time, as he had to go up into the Crow's  Nest country. .  In Spokane he gave assurance of the  immediate construction of the spur of  his line to the.Granby smelter, but declined to make a statement in regard  to the exact date of the commencement  of work on the branch to Phoenix.  He seemed to have certain private  reasons for this, but it is believed the.  date of ordering the actual commencement of active operations is not far off.-  Mr. Hill had his two head contractors  with him, Messrs. Sims and Shields,  of St. Paul, and this is said tobe a significant fact. ���  When Mr. Hill visited Grand Forks  last year, he agreed, on his next visit to  the Boundary, to take a look at the  big mines in Phoenix camp.  iaslalllag an Electric Pump.  'The Phoenix Water Supply Co. has  decided to do its pumping trom Marshall lake to the ioc,ooo-gailon tank  By electric power, and as soon as, th'e  electric pump already ordered from the  Jenckes Machine Co. arrives, it will  be placed in operation. Manager  Martin;: of the company, is now arranging to erect the pole line from  Brooklyn avenue to the lake, and it  will probably be ready by the time- the  pump and dynamo arrives. 'The new  well, recently completed, has a capacity  of 54,000 gallons, and the new pump  will be capable of raising 200,000 galr  Ions in a day.  The Nickel Plate Smelter.  'The surrender by the Indians of the  Chu-chuwaya reserve of 194 acres of  their lands has just been completed, an  arrangement being entered into- by  which the Indians will receive in exchange for the ceded land certain other  adjacent property from H. K. Rogers,  manager of the Yale Mining Company,  owning and operating the Nickel Plr-te  group on 'Twenty Mile creek. 'The  land in question adjoins Hedley City  and the settlement of this matter, which  has been pending some time,determines  definitely the location at this point of  the Nickel Plate smeltet.  A Wise Woman.  Manager Riordan informs us that he.  is negotiating with the managers of "A  Wise Woman" for one night. He says  there is very little chance for such a  company having a date open. No matter, let them know we are on earth.  We may catch them on their leturn.  You must remember, 'twas wind that  made Chicago. Keep blowing your  horn. _       _.

Some 400 coal and oil locations have  been made on the disputed tract in  East Kootenay, and they are still coming at a lively rate. Does this mean  400 lawsuits?  Nearly So-,ooo tons of coal were mined in the Crow's Nest in April, and  yet the Hiitish Columbia smelters were  short of fuel. Probably John H.  'Tonkin can explain the reason.

About a year ago, when the trouble  in labor circles in  East Kooienaj began, following the arrival of John H.  Tonkin as manager of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co., it was evident that the  managers ofthe three Boundary smelters were up against  it so  far as the  fuel   supply was   concerned.     They  ���were absolutely at  the mercy of one  coal company, and that company had  a knack, or was  fast  acquiring it, of  having labor troubles on its hands.  Andrew Carnegie, who is having  such a hard time to give away his millions for educational purposes before  he goes into the great beyond, has  made a break about Canada. 'The old  philanthropist is reaching his dotage.  When interviewed at Spokane last  Saturday, James J. Hill stated that the  Great Northern spur to the Granby  smelter would be coilstiucted at.once.  This is leassuiing, but we'd like to see  Mr. Hill doing something beside talking.  The Kamloops Sentinel once moie  raises its husky voice ageinst high  freight rates, as compared with coast  tates. lis the old story of the long  and short haul, aud all interior points  are victims, its very simple and very  unjust withal.  That trouble was patched up, but as  we know only too well lasted but a  few months, in the meantime the different smelter managements being at  their wits' end for coke in sufficient  quantities, even when the coal mines  were being operated. This was certainly an unbearable state of affairs, of  which there seemed to be no satisfactory  solution.  Here were 500 or 600 men in the  Boundary's quartz mines, with half as  many more in the smelters ��� about  1,000 in all-'-dependent on' the whims  of the coal  miners or  their manager  "for a living. Labor troubles were and"  are unknown in the Boundary. The  men were satisfied and capital was  steadily and persistently endeavoring  to prove that our gigantic low grade  ore. bodies could be made to pay a  profit. This was just about to be elucidated when the labor troubles 300  miles away from here be^an and upset  . - all calculations.  . Some persons wondered if the company which is acknowledged to be the  best mining concern that ever operated,  -in British Columbia ��� the Granby���  -would stand this sort of thing for any  length of time, and be content to see  the millions of dollars the company  had invested in the Boundary remain  unproductive of profits. The question  was pertinent, but remained unanswered for months. Last week the query  was answered, and in the way anticipated.  Sir 'Thomas Shaughnessy speaks  right out in meeting regarding ihe East  Kootenay land grab, and there is no  fear of his doing the C. P. R. cause  any harm. Sir 'Thomas is too astute  a politician for that, and has been in  the traces too loii��.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  A Grave Matter ��� The attorney-  general has introduced a bill to amend  the "Grave Yaid Act." He needn't  worry; he'll be buried all right, and at  the public expense.���Revelstoke Herald.  Is a Good Reason ��� 'The Economist has coucluded its series of "pen  pictures of prominent politicians" lor  the reason that it cannot adhere strictly  to facts and at the same time preserve  the high moral tone of this publication.  ���Nelson Economist.       ��� ~  Small WoNnF.R���-With the C.P.R.  preparing ihe minutes-of-council foi  ministers to obediently sign���and possibly prepaiing the government bills  for the legislature also���it is small wonder that railway domination has been  mentioned in connection with the  British Columbia cabinet. ��� Vancouver World.  Kicking Without Reason���Truly  it takes all kind of people to make a  world. The farmers of the east perhaps buy and use less lead than any  other class of people in Canada, and  yet they are the biggest kickeis against  the inci eased tat iff on that product.  And the farmer who does not use five  pounds of lead in five years will aigue  until he is black in the face that an increased tarriff would ruin his business.  ���Movie Leader.  Without shouting   their intentions  .from the housetops, some of the Granby shareholders set about securing cer  tain valuable coal measures near lilair-  more, Alberta.    This  was done, and  a company was organized with $3,000,-  000 capital.   The coal was found to  admirable for coking purposes, and at  present, without any flourish of trumpets, systematic development is being  - carried on, and 100 coking ovens are  lo be erected at once.    So much  for  the energy ofthe Granby shaieholders,  who   have   again   proven themselves  equal to an emergency.  Of course, it will  take  months  before the output of the new  coal  fields  will be of any considerable magnitude,  but every month brings it  nearer.    It  is pleasing to note, also, that the International Coal and Coke Co., as the  new corporation  is  named, will probably be in a position to furnish  coke  to other Boundary  smelters, after the  wants  ot  the  Granby smelter along  this line have been attended to.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  'The Wakefield, Slocan,''will shoitly  havr> 40 men at work..  Slocan ore shipments for the year  are a little short of 6,ooo tons.  ���'.','  Work has been resumed on the  Jumbo mine, in Rossland camp.  Operations are being resumed at the  Ruth and Wondeiful, in the Slocan.  Plans aie being drawn for a zinc  roasting plant for the Slocan Star mine.  The Silver Cup has let a-coiuraci  for a cable tram from the mine direct  to 'Trout Lake.  Over 400 tons of ore have been ship  ped from the Slocan City mining division this year,  'The Ophir-Lade syndicate is puttini!  in a 10-stamp mill at their propeity,  in the Lardeau gold belt.  There is talk of the White Heat  people electing ii 100-ton concentrator,  to cost $25,000', at Rosslauu.  A rich stiike of ore is repotted .oh  the Good Luck, opeiaied by ihe La-  br.ieis Co-opeiauvo association nt  Golden.  'The famous Clatk vs. Colltnn sun,  over commission for sale ol the Ailing-  ton mine, has been at last settled out  of couit.  'The Tiail and Nelson smelteis weie  forced to close down their lead stacks  last week, through shortage in the supply of ore.  Ore fiom the Silver King mine Heated at the Nelson smolter is giving 200  ounces in silver and 20 per cent copper  to the ton.  Some 600 men are at woik in the  Morrissey coal mines, pioducing 800  tons daily. 'The payioll is $40,000  per month.  Since the railways weie completed  to that camp, a year ago, Republic  mines have shipped a little over 8,000  tons of 01 e.  J. B. Hobson, vice president' ofthe  Provincial Mining Association,intends  making a lour of the interior in the  inteiest ofthe association.  No amendments are to be made to  the placer act this session by ihe legislature, despite the strong recommendations of the Provincial Mining Association.  Last week's ore production in Rossland was: Le Roi, 3,360 tons; Centie  Star, .',830; War Eagle, 1,20c; LeRoi  No. 2, 875; White Bear", 80; Velvet,  100; Kootenay, 290; total, 7,735; foi  the year to date, 137,189 tons.  A civil action has been commenced  at Rossland bythe Centre Star against  the Nickel Plate, alleging that the latter has been stealing oie; also that iht  lattei's workings, being full ol water,  are damaging the former mine, so they  must be emptied.  F'our feet of solid, high grade ore is  reported to have been struck on the  Lucky Boy at Trout Lake. Mr.Stead  has bought from Hillman, McCarter&  Craig, the Horseshoe, on which there  is a magnificent showing. 'The pui-  chase pi ice was $16,000, $5000 paid  down and balance in two payments.  D. J.

' At tho time when the Duke a_d  Duchess of Cornwall were In Victoria,  B.C., there were three families living  In Quebec street named ri-spectlvely  "Georgre," "Cornw**]," and "York," and  the eldest Win Georgre had the Christian name ot "May."  An official decision of the much-discussed question whether there Is smell  a condition of affairs In the Philippines  as constitutes a state of war, has been  given toy the United States War Department In connection with a pending  claim. The Department holds that the  islands are still in;a condition of war.  An Important step has been taken toward the abolition of slavery In German East Africa by the publication  of an Imperial edict which permits even' slave to end his condition ot servitude by the payment of a sum of money, the amount of which Is to 'be determined by the authorities. Every slave  Is to be permitted to work for himself  two days In the week, or to use for hi*  own purposes the corresponding proceeds of his labor. This will give the  slaves an opportunity to accumulate  the purchase money. It Is further decreed that masters shall not transfer  ownership without the'consent of the'  slave.  It  it  understood   that    Seth  Loir,  shortly after he wn.i elected mayor of  New York, sold a million and a half  dollars' worth of securities owned by ','.-,  him In various banks that are doing  business with the city, so that he might  not in the least emkarrasa the city.   He  la determined that the conduct of New  York city affairs shall not be liable to  the slightest suspicion so far as lies in  hi* power.   Many of the stocks sold had  been held by him for years, and were  gilt-edged securities.   His friends say  that in disposing of those permanent  lnvestment6-_o\v made considerable of  a sacrifice, as he can not find the equal  of some ot them as Income producers.  ��� The strange story of the elopement of  an   ordinary milch    cow with a bull  moose   comes   from   Lake   Onawa,   a  pretty sheet of ���water in the hills of  Piscataquis County, Maine, much fre-'  quehted by sportsmen   from    the big  cities.    The cow was the property of  Dr. A. T. Sanden of New York, whose  cottage la located on the shore of Onawa, and she was kept in a pasture enclosed by a rail fence.   A big moose  had  been several times seen  hanging  around the cottage   grounds   late   at  night, displaying great boldness.   One  night he!came close up to where the  cow was,  and th. two seemed  to be ,  good friends.   Late at night a tremendous crash was heard, and next morning the fence was a wreck arid the cow  gone.   Neither she nor the moose has  been seen since.

In  the constitution of a family, such  a thins as too much parent. Time was  when being: a parent was incidental to  other business in life. - Our grandfathers brought up children, a dozen at a  time, with a careless familiarity that  takes away the modern breath. Each  of the dozen was disciplined and duly  chastened. They were wMpped when  they told lies, and occasionally when  they did not. They learned to read at  four; were put to work at five, as a  matter of course; and developed, in due  time, the stuff that men are made of.  There was never any particular fuss  at>out It. The larger the family, tho  more whippings, it took. But there  were always enough to go around, and  no one the worse for It. The advertisement. "Boy missing. Run away  from home," was not an uncommon  feature of the weekly newspaper. But  of the remnant who ihad the courage to  stay at home and grow up, 't may be  said that they made admirable citizens. They had tihe rare privilege of  passing their childhood and youth In  the presence of men and women who  had other and more important business  In life than that of being parent to offspring. They grew up with a chastened  sense of their own unimportance in  the scheme of being, and a philosophic  expectation of taking the hard knocks  of life as they came. .  We have changed all that.   We have  listened to the voice of Froebel, "Let U3  play with our children;" and   to the  educational moralist, "A, father should  be his boy's best friend;" and to our  most   famous   and   most   unpractical  poet, "The child is father to the man:"  and the whole business of child-raising  is turned other end to.   We no longer  raise them by the dozen.   One or two  at a time is as much as we dare venture, and very cautiously at that.   We  study the development and take notes  on the bumps, phrenological; the other  kind the modern child is never allowed  to have.   We agonize over our relation  to his moral growth, and drop tentative, trembling seeds into the ground  of his being, and exchange specimens  If anything  comes  of  It.    The   result,  as a whole. Is not, It must be admitted,  altogether unpleaslng.   There is something about  the  well-born, well-bred,  wholesome child of to-day that makes  glad the eye and the heart.    But the  poor parent!    We protest that he has  never had a chance in life.   Ten to one  his own" parents  belonged   to  the  old  school, and disciplined him within  an  Inch of life.   And now his children belong to   the   new.    He  is  ground   between the upper nnd the nether stone.  Only  In  scattered,   precious   moments  does he dare call himself his own. Late  in the evening, perhaps, when the all-  Important   child   has   been   adequately  played with and encouraged and developed  and  put to  bed  on his  hygienic  pillow,   there   comes  a   moment   when  the exhausted parent may sit down before the tire and draw a comfortable,  grown-up breath, and gather strength  and wisdom for the morrow.  As we watch him, w-e are reminded  of the pleasant old gentleman who,  across the reception-plate, Is accosted  by the genial young girl: "After all,  sir, there's nothing so delicious as the  wlrlg of a chicken, Is there?" And  the old gentleman: "I don't know, rr.y  dear. When I was young the old people always ate the wings, and now I  am old the young people eat them. I  have never tasted the wing of a chicken."���From the "Contributors' Club."  Minister���I am sorry I didn't see y.m  tX church yesterday, Tummas. Tuirc-  _as���Weel, ye see.
