It pays to deal with us.  A party of a dozen or more prominent English editors, who'are making  a trip through Canada, will visit the  Houndary country next Monday to see  our mines and smelters. Mayor Rum  berger has been co-operating with the  officials of Greenwood this week in the  effort to get thes gentlemen to include  theBoundary in the itinerary, and for  a time it appeared as though the effort  would be futile. Yesterday, however,  word was received that the delegation  would be in the Boundary early next  week.  The following  telegram, signed   by  ihe mayors of the two cities," was sent  Tuesday to J. Obed Smith, of Winni  peg, commissioner of immigration, who  has charge of the route of the party: V  "Phoenix and Greenwood heartily  invite the English editors to visit the  Houndary country, which produces  more oie than all the rest of British  Columbia combined, and mines and  smelts it cheaper than- any other place  in the world."  A similar telegram was sent to the  paity itself at the same time, and the  decision has been made to include the  Boundaiy in the excursion. The party  will probably go direct to Greenwood,  and then come up to Phoenix the next  morning. After seeing the Knob Hill  mine ^and.Snpwshoe, ���tl)eL_edilors,_will  take lunch as the guest of Geo. S.  Waterlow at the latter mine and then  probably go to Grand Forks. 'The  following is given out as the personne  of the party, and the papers they  represent: .    -       .  Mr. E..G. Lesage, of the Daily 'Telegraph, London; Mr. W.'

Frank Fritz and C. XV. Harri-  fgan, two prospectors, staked four  I claims and hastened to Grand  Forks to record their locations.  They report finding a ledge of  'galena and grey copper averaging 1 o inches to three feet in  (width and traceable on the surface for si* hundred, feet. Surface specimens, assayed at the  ' Granby smelter, gave values of  k^o  ounces  silver and   15 per  > cent copper and 55 ounces silver  land 10 per cent copper per ton,  > respectively.  They have mmed the new djs-  'trict 'Thunder Hill Camp, and  'report that they passed over many,  'inferior looking ledges. Many  I prospectors are preparing  to)  go  in this week. 'The trail ends at  .the coal  fields.     The  camp  is  situated within two miles of the  'source of the North Fork, and  'just this side of the range separating the North Fork from Firei  (Valley, which is accessible fiomi  > the Arrow lakes. (  Last Monday's Labor Day celebration by the labor organizations of Phoenix, which took the form of a-huge picnic at the New York townsite park,  was a success from every standpoint.  Tlure were a number of visitors here  from Greenwood, Grand Forks and  other places, notwithstanding that no  special trains were run, and every one  voted having had a good time. 'The  Granby and Snowshoe mines were closed for the day, and the employees and  townspeople joined in taking a day of  rest and recreation.  About ten o'clock the parade of labor  unions took place, starting from Miners' Union Hall, and headed by Wm.  Hall, the marshall of the day. 'There  were about 150 men.in line, the- parade going through the principal streets  of the city, and thence to the picnic  grounds on the hill. Here the lest  of the day was enjoyed in sports of  various kinds, and in the evening the  ball at the hall had possibly the largest attendance ever seen there, and  that is not saying a little.  'The entire celebration was given for  the benefit of Henry Syrsted, the miner who lost his sight some time ago in  an explosion at the Snowshoe mine,  and a good sum was realized.  While the returns cannot be definitely.given yet, there will be something  over $306 for the benefit of Syrsted.  'The labor unions desiie to heartily  thank those who assisted in making  the event a success, especially the many  ladies who devoted their time and talent to the picnic.

'Tuesday's train brought in two gentlemen' from the  old   country who are  largely interested in the mining development of this camp, viz., Geoige S  Waterlow,  Esq.,  and   Dr.   H.  Lewis  Jones, both  prominent capitalists of  London, England, and   both directors  of the Snowshoe Gold  and   Copper  Mines, Ltd.,  operating  the Snbwshe  mine in this camp.    'They  were  met  at  Banff by  Anthony  J.  McMillan,  managing director of the Snowshoe,  who accompanied them to Phoenix..  Mr. Waterlow left London about the  middle of July, coming on by easy  stages, and also visiting his son, who  is connected with the ..British embassy  at Washington, D, C. He is at the  head of Waterlow & Sons, who cori-  duct'one of the most extensive printing establishments,.in its many varied  branches, in the United Kingdom, employing in the neighbohood.of 10,000  people. Dr. Jones is an eminent specialist, and is consulting surgeon to St.  Bartholomew's hospital, London.  Both gentlemen visited Phoenix and  the Snowshoe mine together just two  years ago, and then were greatly impressed, after a personal inspection,  with the potentialities of the Snowshoe  mine as a producer, and ultimately as  ,a dividendJpayer... From���a; chatwiih  them had.by a Pioneer man this week  it was evident that they had not changed their .minds in the least, but felt  more confident than  ever   in the out  by different' piocesses. What the old  country investor is after now is some  1 eturns for investments aheady made  in British Columbia "mines, and not  for".opportunities for investing in smelter shares as yet. We have now got  the Snowshoe where it will, we expect,  begin to pay back something lor the  many thousands of pounds alieady invested in.;the pro|��rty.  "After,the failuip of the Biitish  America Corporation, the English investor is wary of Biitish Columbia.  When I floated the Snowshoe last year  in London, 1 did it through my own  personal friends, and not through the  ordinary channel of brokers and underwriters."  Mr. Waterlow and Dr. Jones will  spend a couple of weeks in the camp  before returning to England.  IMPROVING  THE CITY  City  Council Building  More  Sidewalks.

'The Rossland Miner gives a  statement of the ore shipped and the aver  age assay values contained therein from  the Le  Roi  mine in  the  past  eight  months.    The figuies are of special interest, particularly as the  returns for  tbe past month or so have not  as  yet  made their appeaiance even in the Lon  don papers.

ORE GOES TO GREENWOOD SMELTER  come.  The Advance in Two Years.  In the two years since Mr. Water-  low's last visit to the Snowshoe most  substantial progress has made in the  mine, and it has been brought into the  list of steady shippers. In that. time  ���iver s,000 tons of ore have been sent  out to the smelters, with returns that  are understood to have been most encouraging to the management. 'The  greater part of this was shipped in the  last four months, and this tonnage  would have been much larger could  the Boundary creek smelters have  handled it. In fact the mine could  now easily ship steadily at the rate of  600 tons daily.  Mr. Waterlow also noted the large  amount of underground development  done on Snowshoe in two years, running into many hundreds of lineal feet,  and including the fine, main working  thiee compartment incline shaft, sunk  in ore to the 300 foot level. Besides  this the surface ore (marry has been  opened, where the maximum of ore  can be taken out at the minimum of  cost���and good ore it is, too. All this  was accomplished with the original  prospecting plant.  Now the mine is in a shape to go  ahead and make a record for itself  io England, where British Columbia  mining investments are none too well  thought of owing to the Whittaker  Wright fiasco. With its new and up  to date electrical enmpressor, modern  boarding, bunk and office buildings,  the Snowshoe's surface improvements,  Mr. Waterlow noted with pleasure, are  down to date.  Not Building Smelters Yet.  'The Snowshoe chairman, was much  amused at the report purporting to em  anate from him, sent out from Grand  Grand Forks last Monday, to the effect  that he was considering a smelter site  there.  "We came from Rossland to Grand  Forks over the Great Northern," said  Mr. Waterlow, "because on Labor Day  most of the C. P. R. equipment was  in use taking the crowds to the Slocan  celebration. Mr. Manly discovered us  in Grand Forks, and was anxious to  show us a smelter site. We consented  and the enterprising coirespondent did  the rest.  ('In thue we may have our own reduction works, and we are still having  experiments made on  Snowshoe ores  Shipments Could be Readily Increased to 600  Tons Per Day If the Smelter Could  Handle It.  Beginning last Saturday the Snow-  shoe mine once again entered the list  of the Boundary shipping mines. For  some time this mine shipped steadily  at the rate of about four cars,  or   120  Owing to the fact that the city treasury is not in as bad a condition as it  might be, the city council has decided  to do some improvements to the stiee'.s  of the corporation, especially in the way  of building sidewalks. At Wednesday's  meeting of the city fathers they arranged to extend the sidewalk up the east  side of School street to Knob   Hill  avenue, and thence along Knob   Hill  to the present termination of the sidewalk, on the corner of Church  street.  A sidewalk will also be built on Brooklyn avenue on  the south side  for a  couple of blocks���an improvement that  has long been needed.    In addition to  this some of the rock that was left- on  Knob  Hill   avenue,  west of  church  street, will be taken out, to make that  street more passable.  'The council also decided at its Wednesday meeting to extend the time for  the payment of taxes to September 30,  next, within which time the rebate can  be taken advantage of.  Mayor Rumberger was authorized  to invite the English -editors now in  British Columbia to visit the Boundaiy and Phoenix, the city paying the  expense while these distinguished gentlemen are here.  'The city clerk was asked to make up  an estimate of the city's expenses to  the 31st of next December.- "   ~~ ���-  On the recommendation of the finance committee, the following accounts  were ordered paid:  Hunter-Kendrick Go....

At the Cascade Water, Power and  tons, daily, to the Sunset smelter at I I-ight Co.'s power house at Cascade  Boundary Falls,,. from   the  time   that! the work of putting in the 250 feet  of  concern started operations till compelled to close on account of lack of coke.  This amount was all that the Sunset  smelter could use, although the Snow-  shoe is now in a position to supply a  much heavier tonnage.  For the present the ore is going to  the Mother Lode smelter -at Greenwood, at the same old rate of about  120 tons daily, and as soon as the  smelter can use more the rate of shipping will be increased���probably as  soon as the second furnace is blown in,  or when the other smelter on Boundary creek is ready to resume. 'The ore  being sent down now is especially desirable on account of its lime contents.  At present the ore from the Snow-  shoe is largely being taken from the  glory hole or open quarry, where it' is  being cheaply extracted on about the  same plan as that in use at the Knob  Hill and mother Lode mines. It is  broken down on the surface, dropped  thiough a raise to the ore cars, thence  into the ore bins and to the railway cars. I  -  I  steeLpipe to convey the water from the  end of the 7 -foot circular stave pipe  line, which runs 1,400 feet from the  concrete bulkhead where the water will  enter the pipe line, down to the turbines, is being pushed on with, and it  is expected that the necessary connection preliminary to turning the water  into the pipe will have been made before the end of September. Inside the  power house turbines and generators  are in position. 'The turbines are of  the horizontal type, two wheels in each  case, and the generators of the three-  phase alternating type, and step-up  transformers will be used to raise the  current lor transmision. 'The arrival  of more plant is awaited, and upon receipt this will be installed.  Northport's base ball mine beat the  Rossland twirlers on Labor Day at Slocan City and won the prize of $roo.

If the recently published dispatches  from Vancouver and Ottawa are to be  given credence, the beginning of construction operations on the long postponed���and longer needed���Coast-to-  Kootenay railway will be undertaken  shortly. It is said that McLean Bros.,  who have recently signed a contract  with the provincial government to con-  stiuct this- joad, have made a deal  with Mann & McKenzie and James J'.  Hill for putting through this important  railway link, engineers being already,  in the Hope mountains, west of Princeton.  James J. Hill, when recently in the  Boundaiy, gave it out pretty plain that  he fully intended   to continue the new  V., V. and E. line through  to the Pacific coast, with or  without a  bonus  Of course,' Mr. Hill will not refuse the  little subsidy of $5,000 per mile, to be  given by the provincial government, as  he will be just tint much ah.'ad on the  deal.   .But he will  build, bonus or no  bonus,"' for  that  is  his past  record.  Then   the   Dominion   government  is  likely to help' the good work  along by  an additional subsidy of some $3,000  per mile���making in  round numbers  about $2,500,000   bonus lor the line.  No wonder Mr. Hill  is willing to pool  issues with   McLean  Bros, and Mann  & McKenzie.  At last, then, there appears to be  something tangible to all this railway  scheming; Appearances indicate that  dirt will really begin to fly on the construction of the Coast-Kootenay 'railway line in the near futuie. The dispatching of two such impoitanl. engineer* as James H. Kennedy and Alex.  E. Lupfer to .the field west of the  Boundary would of itself indicate this  moie than anything else, the surveys  into Phoenix and Greenwood and west  to Princeton having been completed  some months since.  There is one more phase of this rail  way question that is of unusual inter-l jjremner vs. Arlington Mines,  Rossland mines shipped 7,643 "tons  of ore last week.  It is said that Slocan mines employ  lully a thousand men.  i he Canadian Mining Iiwnuie  meeis in Nelson in a few days.  Nearly 5,000 tons ol ore have been  shipped from McGuigan basin mines  his year.  In June Le Roi No. 2 shipped 6,316  tons ot ore, valued at $15.28 per ton,  or $96,505.45.  The Venus mine, neai Nelson, will  have a 7,200-foot liaiiiuay, lhc_ contract having been let.  A valuable copper sti ike was made  on the Copper Siar group, Salis1 my  creek, near Kaslo, last week.  In the Laideau the Nettie L. and  Silver Cup have* recently shipped 1400  tons ol ore, valued at about $195,000.  The Reco mine is putting on a small  foice 01 men, with the intention of making preparations to operate extensively  in the early fall.  The Silver Cup and Tiiune mine.-,  in Lardo district have forces ol men  at work dealing the right of way for  their aerial trams.

Mann & McKenzie aie largely interested in the Brooklyn group of mines  in this camp, and James J. Hill owns  a ��50,000 smelter site near Grand  Folks���-formerly the John A. Manly  r.mch. The Brooklyn group is now  developed to the steady shipping stage  and Mr. Hill has his own cpke supply,  with his railway completed to the Republic mines, where plenty ot silicious  oaes can be had.  Bearing these facts in mind, and  also that Mr. Hill will want tonnage  for his line to Phoenix when completed, it is reasonable lo think that some  large plans for Boundary development  are baing worked out This is also  given color to by the report from St.  Paul'last week that a thousand ton  smelter wyuld soon be built in the  Kettle river valley.  EDITORIAL COMMENT  At Revelstoke .Col. Prior said  the  two per cent ore tax must go.  If you can't "boost," don't knock.  I'here is little room for the "knocker"  in any well regulated community.  At last the coast press is taking up  the two per cent mine la*. This is  right. Throw the light on it. Some  good will surely result.  Ihe Mo)je Leader says that an important strike was made in the St. Eugene mine last week when between  eight and nine feet of solid ore was  struck.  C. B. Taylor has taken a lease on  the Meteor group near Slocan City  from Finch & Campbell of Spokane  and taken up a force of men to commence work.  Ore shipments from the entire Slocan for 1002 amounted to about 20,-  000 tons) From Rossland they are over  200,000 tons, and frorn Boundary  300,000 tons.  Assay returns on a recent sample  taken from the ledge in the Copper  Bluff, owned by the Ashnola Smelter,  Ltd., give gold values of $j.8o, silver  $19.03 and copper $48.87,  .A committee has been appointed by  the provincial government to inquire  into the late disaster at the lrernie  coal mines. It will consist of John  Bryden, ex-M. P. P., Tully Boyce, of  Nanaimo, and P. S. Lampman, barrister, of Victoria.  IJeison parties who acquired the  controlling interest in the Montreal  and Two Friends, near ��locan City,  are forming a company, with 10,000  shares, to develope the group. The  work' is to be done on the Montreal,  principally by a shaft.  But in all these reports not a word  is said about the  C. P. R., which has  ' had the monopoly of the ore canning  -���and passenger trade of this_section for  some years.    That  Canadd's  greatest  railway "will quietly see the lich trade in  ���   sight go to a rival line, without a most  stienuous effort to preserve it, is not to  be thought  for a moment.    Already  'the C. P. R., by the completion of the  Great Northern line  to  Grand Fork's,  lias lost most  of its  coast  passenger  traffic from the Boundary, and  is.feel-  irig the competition keenly.  Undoubtedly tlie C. P. Ii., when it  floes build its line through the Siroilr  kasneen, wishes to connect with the  main line at Spence's Bridge; but as  1 yet no provincial boaus is available  _ for that route���it must be via the IJope  mountains.

Do not  forget that.  And now the Presbylery of Kootenay is after the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Co., because the manager will not sell  church sites at Michel and Morrisey,  Troubles never come singly.  The typographical expert on the  staff of the Vancouver World who made  the machine say that "the habitat of  the seas" was "the bajibut of the seas,"  must be a native of New Brunswick,  John- Houston's revivified Nelson  Tribune is redolent with the-personality of the member from Nelson. While  he may make enemies with his shoulder blows, his paper is always worth  reading.  Slocan mine owners receive $^.30  for their lead, and the consumer pays  five cents and more per pound. No  wonder the lead miners think there is  something wrong and that they are  not getting fair treatment.  If that party of E"g'isn editors does  not come into the Boundary, its mem-  beis will miss a deal of information in  legar.d to cheap mining and smelting  that old country investors would be  only too glad to hear of after several  yeai s' of expensive experience in other  camps.

The men who work for the famous billion dollar Steel trust produce per man  per.  day  wealth   to  the  thousand ol  $10.50, while their average wage, including that of foremen" and  superintendents, is $1.35 per day. Since 1900  wages   have  been   steadily   falling, so  that now it will   be approximately cor  rect to say tlut  the American   workman receives one-sixth of  the product  of his toil, or, to put it in another way,  he   woiks   five   days    of   the   week  for   his   masters   and  one   day    foi  himself.

Is it anj  wonder that  he sometimes encioaches  upon the Sabbath in order  to win for  himself a   little more  of this world'.-,  goods ?  If Mr. Shearer and his friends are  sincere in their fiiendship for the working men, let them at once set about  removing this overwhelming injustice,  and they may feel assured that when  the men of toil receive the full reward  of their six days' labor, none of them  will feel any desire to work upon the  seventh.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  Plainness and simplicity are essential to the wiiting of good ads.  Advertising is the only salesman  you can employ that will keep ever-  las.ingly at it ail the time.  Never mind what the other fellow  is doing, go ahead and push for business on your own account. .  When an advertiser once sights success he begins to realize what a fathom;  less power advertising really is.  The simple statements of the merits  uf your goods make the best ads���if  1 hey don't something is wrong with  the goods.  Never wait until the last moment to  prepare copy for advertisements cr  printed mattei���get it into shape early  and thus insure having plenty of time  10 have it set up to the best advantage  A Cheerful Propatcy.  THE animal uiai cannot -be trained  to keep iu wits about It on the  approach of a motor' car, must  disappear.     Its   stupidity, filth,  ��!ofj, fear of ererything- and useless  size  prove  to the  most  conservative  that it-must gro.rriie horse; that will  riot stand a motor tar may/ fie the delight of Its on-ier, but It Is a publlo  nuisance  and  a  public    danger,   and  ought to be shot like a mad dog. Horsemen have no right to bring unmanageable brutes Into the public highways,  to the public danger, and It Is time this  elementary Justice   should    be recognized.   The motor Is going to become  the means of locomotion for all light  transit, and by the ordinary roads as  they exist to-day.: It Is the pedestrian  and the, horse that have got to give  way.   The horse In traffic, If he chooses  to bolt,'Is uncontrollable.   The motor,  from the lightest bicycle to the heaviest car. Is perfectly controllable, occupies half the space, and travels now  through the congested streets at double  and  treble'the speed  of    any horse-  drawn vehicle.  The only thing the two  have In common is that at times they,  both refuse to go. './;���-,''���  The unobservant talk of the accidents  that would happen. The accidents will  be a great deal fewer In number. A  conclusive proof ot this, to any one  with any sense, Is the fact that in the  thousand miles tour no one, I believe,  was hurt, though the roads were lined  with spectators. In the race from Paris  to Berlin, three days, and the tour  around Italy, ten days, but two children were killed, the result entirely of  their own carelessness or that of their  parents. Suppose, for a moment, that  In France a hundred and ten teams, or,  rather, droves, of horses���there were a  hundred and ten motors���ranging from  fifty in a bunch down to two���this was  the horse-power of the machines���had  been let loose and driven at top speed  for three days on tbe public roads.  Will anyone tell me that thousands of  people would not have been killed, that  hundreds of drivers would - not have  lost their lives as wtll? But that would  have been described as sport. ...  The only danger to be feared from the  motor car Is to its own driver, the only  drawback Is Its own imperfection.  Read the reports �� automobile accidents: proportionately, these are far  fewer than from any other, form of locomotion, and in nine cases out of ten  the accident occurs to the driver or the  occupant of the car; In'the tenth case  it Is owing to the stupidity or the carelessness of the person who gets in  front. The average pedestrian has simply got to learn to keep,out of the way,  and that Is the end of it.���Joseph Een-  nell in "Contemporary Review."  Application for Transfer of Hotel License.

He was taken  out for drill with"other raw recruits un*  der command -of a sergeant, and, as  luck would have it, secured one of the  worst buckers in the whole troop.  "Now, my men," said the sergeant In  addressing them, ���'nc one is allowed to  dismount without orders from a superior officer.   Remember that."  Tim was no sooner in the saddle than  he was hurled head over heels throup-*��  the air, and came down so hard th*��  the breath was almost knocked out of  him. ���.,.,.;,��� -...  "Murphy," shouted the- sergeant,  when he discovered the man spread out  on the ground, "you dismounted!"  "I did."  "Did you have orders?"  "I did."

The experience of a colleg-e graduate,  named,, Leven worth, who taught for a  ;year"in a little Western town, is an example of the way in which a" teacher  sometimes wins the admiration of Ilia  pupils quite unexpectedly.     .-'.',,������'.,  Levenwprth was not a teacher by nature br profession; hut, as many men  have done, he spent a year teaching; to  get money enough to help himself  through the law school. He was a  hearty,; clear-minded fellow who kept  rather aloof from the townspeople. The  local paper spoke of him aa havimr  "had a promising career in oolicg*."  Part of this promising career had, at  It happened, *een spent lri athletics.  He had learned to box and wrestle,  and had won his class championship  in the art which, from Its unfortunate  association with the prize-ring, has  not so,good; a reputation among the  peaceful ��� as, lri its legitimate; form; it  deserves.'���,;.;- ���*���,'-..     : >:���,"''���':'���].  His school -was ; quiet and orderly  from the start, but lie found it hard  work to ge.'. on intimate terms with  the twenty boys under, hlrm They  obeyed at �� distance, but did not show  much personal friendship for him.  One di-,y at recess, when the schoolyard was a clamor of voices, the young  master heard a sudden lull. Looking  out the window, he saw the children  llnod up against the fence watching a  teamster, who was stupidly trying to  whip his horse up the hill that ran  past the school. Th* wagon was loaded heavily with garden-stuff, and the  horse was doing his best to no purpose. - \  Suddenly one'of the boys, went into  the street, and evidently remonstrated  with the driver. For answer he got an  ugly slash of the whip, and reeled  back,, holding his hands over his eyes.  This was too much for Levenworth.  He ran downstairs and out across the  playground. Coolly pushing a stone  under the wheel with bis foot, he commanded the teamster, a gaunt, sinewy  man, to come off his seat.:  The fellow gre-whostlle at once, an3  obeyed. Jumping down, he approached  the schoolmaster, ready, and eager for  a fight, and heated to dangerous anger  by his struggle with the horse. ,'.  It was a real, old-fashioned fight,  with the power of anger and excitement on one side, and skill, backed by  those almost infallible allies, right and  Justice, on the other. '''.'���'",  There was enough left-of the teamster to drive his h^rse, while a dozen  boys put their shoulders to the wheels  and pushed the wagon to the top of the  hill. '  The pupil whose task it was to ring  the bell for the end of recess was a  minute late that day. The teacher was  late, too. It took him a little time to  put his clothes In order and wash his  face and hands. Meanwhile the school  assembled, not without some noise and  excitement, and took their seats. They  were subdued and orderly when Levenworth came in and walked to his  desk.  Before he had time to be seated, and  as if by a preconcerted signal,, the pupils began to applaud. Discipline and  modesty made the teacher try to stop  them. It was useless, so he smiled.  Then they cheered. The disorder of the  next minute was quite against the  rules, but nobody received a black  mark on the schoolmaster's deportment  book; and after that, to Levenworth's  surprise, there was a new and warm  friendship in the bearing of. the boys  toward him.

"Life,'* '  Why Linn Quit the Newspaper.  James Weber Linn, whose novel,  "The Second Generation," a story of  newspaper life and political corruption  in Chicago, has brought him into the  public eye, is a nephew of Jliss June  Addajns of Hull House, Chicago.  How this young author came to quit  newspaper work is an Interesting  story. He secured a position on the  staff of a Chicago daily immediately  on leaving college. All went well until  one night, about three months after he  took up the life of a reporter, whon  the city editor assigned him to make  a midnight call at a homo where tlie  head o�� the household, a prominent  man, had committed suicide. "Got a  good talk out of the wife and the girl,"  wore the parting instructions. As Linn  approached the house he was overcome by a sense of the intrusiveness ot  his mission. Suddenly the glamor and  charm of newspaper work vanished*  In vain he attempted to force hl.tn.sel<  to go up the. steps of'the house. Tho  traditional Incentive of (he newspaper  ofllce, the argument that, he must nor  "fall down" on his assignment, failed  to stimulate hu interest er his courage, and the longer he stood staring at  ihe black streamer ot crape that fluttered from the door the greater becamo  his repugnance for his disagreeable  task. Finally he turned on his heel,  took a car back to the office, and  handed in his resignation with the ex,  planatlon that some other man wouiq  have to get that interview. Tbis episode ended his newspaper experience  and he soon secured a position as an.  Instructor in'rhetoric in the University  Of Chicago., where he is still engaged  Mr. Linn's book was written in six  /weeks, while spending a vacation In  Europe. His success affords another  example of the fact that much of th*  JIterature of the day is being made by  the young, for h�� lu only twenty-flv��  years of uge.  7.45 a. m.

TALKED OVER THE TRAMWAY.  Pboenlx City Council Visits (bat of Greenwood.  Thursday evening the city council  on invitation, made a journey to Greenwood, to visit the city council of that  place, to discuss the proposed Greenwood-Phoenix tramway, which the latter body is trying to revive. The Phoenicians were hospitably entertained,  and the whole matter was discussed in  its vaiious phases, the special object cf  Greenwood being to secure a franchise  to run through the streets of Phoenix,  i'his it was thought might be done if  something, was done in return.  Finally the Greenwood aldermen  proposed the city of Phoenix issuing  $50,000 in bonds, half of which is to  be used in improvements in this city,  the balance to go into the building of  the tramway, Greenwood to issue bonds  for the rest of the capital needed. It  is also proposed to ask government  aid in the prosecution of such an important project, that will be of inestimable benefit to the entire district. If  Greenwood and Phoenix can get together on the proposition, it will be  easier to put it through,   it is thought.  ���eee  While there's life there's hope,  as a famous Soap manufacturer  once saidr We have every kind  of Soap that the heart or hands  could wish for or need.
