A. Hainbridge, of Nelson, resident  engineer for the C. 1*. R. was in Phoenix, suivcying for new spuis which the  company is to put in here at once for  the accommodation of the shipping  mines of the camp. There will be at  least three more of these spurs, and  they will, in no small degiee, assist in  increasing the daily and weekly ore  ouiput of the chief camp of the Jioun-  daiy.  One of these spurs will be 1,800  feet long, and will run below the mouth  of the so-called railway tunnel ol the  Snowslu e mine, so that the immense  bodies of ore from that part of the  workings of that property can be ship  ped to advantage. Work has already  been started on this spur by a gang of  Tiernay & McPhail's men, which firm  has ihe contract.  Still another spur is to be put in {or  the accommodation of the Snowshoe  people, which will iun below the dump  of the new 300-/001 shaft. This will  give three places from which the Snow-  shoe can ship ore, and is the best evidence that thu mine pioposes to increase the ore output at no distant date.  Another impoitant spur to be built  is for the Granby mines. This will  leave the piesant Knob Hill spur a  short distance above the-new compressor house, and will iun southwesterly  into the hill on a level with the 100-  foot level of the Knob Hill workings,  which is the same level as   the  No.   2  PaIO out a thousand dollars.  Ilealib Officer Resigns and Pound Keeper Is  Appointed.  Aldermen Rogers and Marshal were  the absentees at Wednesday's meeting  of the city council, and the mayor appointed Aldeiman Riordan as a member of the finance committee. The  council directed that $500 be sent to  the Bank of Montreal on account of  the $9,500 due from the city, and the  following accounts were ordeied paid:  $ 24 00  48 00  1 5��  10 60  7 50  00  S&  45 00  S 00  5 3��  jo 00  ARE PLEASED  WITH OUTLOOK  Messrs.

Two petitions were received', one foi  a sidewalk from the Cottage,, hotel  across the First street, .bridge to the  Summit hotel, and the other for a sidewalk from the telephone office to Banner street on Dominion avenue. Both  were laid over till the next meeting.  Chief of Police Flood was appointed  pound keeper, and an enpty building  back of the Union hotel was selected  as a pound.  A communication, was read from  Messrs. Graves and .Williams, owners  of the Bank block, for ' permission to  erect a first-class cess-pool under the  First street bridge, to be built of brick  and subject to the approval of the  medical health .officer. 'l'he request  was granted.  BUILDING ,A  TRAMWAY  tunnel. In fact in time this will connect with the No. 2 tunnel, so that  railway dump cirs can be iun right into the tunnel, thus giving another 100  feet of ore, hundreds of feet wide, that  can be handled entirely by gravity  after being once broken down.  On this spur the railway people expect to do perhaps 500 feet of work,  or until the ore body is reached, when  the Gianby people will mine the ore  aud ship it as fast as it is taken out in  the path of the spur. When completed it will increase the Granby's facilities for cheap extraction and shipment  to a laige extent.  Granby Co. Starts One to be  1,000 Feet Long.  TO CARRY ORE TO THE NEW CRUSHER  Will be on lhe Three Track System���To Take  Ore From Upper Levels of Ihe Knob Hill  Glory Hole.  LOCATING C0ASr5KO0TENAY ROUTE.  Chief   Engineer  Kennedy Has Been over  lr  Once.  James II. Kennedy, chief engineei  of the V., V...& E. railway, and A. M.  Lupfer, chief locating engineer of the  Great Northern railway, who left the  Boundary three weeks ago to make a  reconnoisance of the proposed Coast-  Kootenay railway between Midway and  the coast, have readied New Westminster.  Mr. Kennedy has traversed the projected route of the C. P. R. between  Princeton, in the Similkameen distiict,  across the Hope mountains to Hope  station, on the main line of the C. P.  R. This is-the route which Hon. E;  II, Dewdney, government engineer,  reported to be impracticable. Mr. Kennedy and Mr, Lupfer are starting eastward to seek a more southerly pass  across the Hope mountains at or near  the international boundary line. This  route extends via Chilliwack lake and  a tributary of the Skagit river, and is  regarded as quite feasible.  Visitor From Kaslo.  William J. Twiss, of Kaslo, general  agent for the Mutual Life of Canada  (formerly Ontario Mutual Life,) was in  the city for some days this week, look-  ng up business for his company. Before leaving he enlisted a n"ce contingent of risks, and was glad to have met  several old policy holders in Phoenix,  all of whom speak highly of their company and the results received on their  respective policies. The Mutual Life  of Canada is now on its 33d year. A  Canadian company owned solely and  managed by its policy-holders. Mr.  Tw'-ss is looking for an active and re-,  sponsible agent far Phoenix, and is  prepared to. take tip w(th the right  party on those lines.  It is a poor week when the Granby  Co. in this camp is not starting some  substantial, improvement���some new  building or piece of work that will tend  to assist in ge'ting out increased  quantities of ore at the least possible  cost.  The latest is a tramway that will be  at least 1,000 feet long, to run from  the upper part of the Knob Hill glory  hole to the new ore crusher, the building for which has already been erected.  This tramway will be of the three track  pattern, except at the turnout, and will  be operated by gravity, as is usual in  such cases. Already, some 20 bents  have been erected where the track will  cross the C. P. R. spur near the Knob  Hill compressor house, and this week  a force of men was put at work grading  on the upper part of the track bed.  l'he ore crusher is supposed to have  been shipped from the makers, at Sher-  brooke, Quebec, and will arrive any  time now. It is a huge machine, the  largest in the Boundary or British Columbia, and capable, when worked at  full capacity, of crushing 3,600 tons of  ore each 24 hours. 'Ihe 100 horse  power motor by which it will be driven  is being furnished by the Canadian  General Electric Co., from the works  at Peterborough, Ont., and will be here  about the same time that the crusher  arrives, which date will be before the  Cascade people are prepared to furnish  power over the new long distance line.  S. S. Fowler, manager of the British  Columbia Goldfields, Ltd., who control the Cascade watfr power, was a  visitor in camp Tuesday to consult  with the Snowshoe mine, management  about supplying electrical energy for  running the machinery, which it is  expected to be able to supply in about  six or seven weeks.  Geo. L- Pedlar, eye specialist, makes  regular appointments at McKenzie's  drug store for the purpose of fitting  glasses for defective or failing sight.  Watch for his dates.  Two years ago George S. Waterlow,  Esq., and Dr. H. Lewis Jones, two of  the London directors of the Snowshoe  mine, visited the propeity, and icport-  ed themselves as well pleased with the  outlook at that time.    This week they  have completed another two weeks' inspection at the mine, and now they are  more fiinily convinced than before that  the Snowshoe is being��evolved,   undei  careful  management  and  systematic,  business like development, into a great  mine���one that will in   the  future in  all likelihood produce mostsatisfactoiy  dividends for the shareholders.  These two gentlemen left Phoenix  this week for merry England, and when  they get there it is safe to say that they  will have nothing but encouragement  to report*to their fellow shareholders.!  1'hey have been on the ground again,  have seen the actual working of the  mine, and have noted the substantial  progress made since their previous visit,  and have nothing but words of praise  for those who have been carrying on  the practical part of the business in  British Columbia, while they have supplied the "sinews of war" from acioss  the sea.  Plans for  the Future.  Before leaving,   Mr. Waterlow  consented to an interview   with   the   Pioneer man, in regard to thefututeof the  Showshoe.    Fiom him it was learned  that the plans  of the company   in  regard to the ultimate process of treatment of Snowshoe ores were j et in abej **  a nee.    New methods were -gonstantl)  being  invented,   for   which   much  is  claimed, and they would bethoiouglih  investigated and the results laid before  the board 0/   directors.      Even  since  Mr. Waterlow'has been in Phoenix, a  new process from Germany  has   been  submitted to him, and   the  lights  for  Canada offered.    Whether  ultimately  it would be the ordinary  blast furnace,  plan of reduction that would be decided  upon, the Elmore process of oil  concentration, or some other, he was  not  prepared to say at this time.  While Mr. Waterlow did not make  the statement himself, the Pioneer  learns that he has been offered at least  three sites for the location of a smelter on this visit, one each in Cascade,  Midway and Grand Forks���with a  number of inducements thrown in  should the company decide in the  future to erect their own works. One  existing smelter, in fact, has offered to  sell the Snowshoe people a half interest  iu their works, and these suggestions  were all taken under consideration.  Asked what he thought of Phoenix  camp, after this trip, Mr. Waterlow said:  Two Things Needed.  "You have here some marvellous ore  bodies, greater probably than any where  else in British Columbia. The Knob  Hill has been piovcd to be a niosj. remarkable mine, and while our development on the Snowshoe is not in the  same advanced stage, we believe we  also have an immense proposition here.  "You need two things here to assure  success, and you must have them.  These are the co operation of the government and also that of the railway  carriers. In taxing, the government  should tax only profits and not the industry itself. I talked with Premier  Dunsmuir in London about this, and  also with the ministers at Victoria, and  I believe they will take favorable action.  "The.C. P. R.: has mothered this  country, and should nurse the mining  industry, and not exact all the traffic  will bear. Ore freights should not be  based on the value of the ore, as is so  often the case here. This would not  be allowed for a minute in ��� England,  and it must be readjusted here.  "Of the Snowshoe mine itself, I cannot but feel pleased at the way the affairs of the mine have been conducted  under Mr. McMillan, Mr. Astley and  Mr. Trevorrow.   We have an immense  tonnage in sight, and for the present  we will continue to ship to the custom  smelters, as heretofore."  Presents lo  Ibe Men.  Sunday Mr.   Waterlow met all   the  employees of the Snowshoe  and  gave  them an address, followed by   refreshments.    As a souvenir of'the occasion  each one was presented with a medallion, on one side of which was a  likeness of King Edward and on the re-  veise that of Queen Alexandra, which  he had had made in London  for this  purpose.    Those who had been in the  employ of the Snowshos for  two years  or more weie  presented  with  an additional   token.     The   incident   did  much to still further cement the  feeling of regard between the management  and the employees of the mine.  MONEY FOR  PROVIDENCE  Capital is to be Placed at $200,-  000.  CHICAGO FINANCIERS TAKING HOLD  Boundary Mining Notes.  Shipments from the Snowshoe are  now going to both the Sunset and  Mother Lode smelters.  A few days since the No. 2 west  raise from the Knob Hill tunnel to the  glory hole was completed.  The Granby smelter'is only running  two furnaces as yet, but it is hoped  to blow in the other two in a short  time.  F. Bail ey reports an important find  of grey copper ore on his Gold Braid  claim, near tbe Providence, in Piovi-  dence camp.  The Sunset smelter at Boundary  Falls was put in blast Wednesday, and  the second furnace ot the Mother Lode  smelter at Greenwood was also blown  in this week.  The framework on the new air com-  piessor building, 62x120 feet in size,  being erected by the Granby Co., is  completed, and enclosing and roofing  the structuie is almost done.  Duiing the month of August the  the Gianby mines shipped 14,988 tons  ol ore, and the smelter treated 12,971  tons���both being the smjllest tonnage  of any month so far this year, due to  the lack of coke at the company's  smelter.  Greenwood, Phoenix and Spokane People Inter-  eiled in Ibis High Grade Mine, Wbicb  Will Soon Ship Ai��ln.  Ordeis have been placed by the  management of the Snowshoe mine foi  lumber for additional ore bins, that  will have an appioximate capacity of  2,000 tons. They will be located ai  the dump of the lailway tunnel on the  new spur now being built.  This week steps were  taken  to  incorporate the    Providence   mine   in  Providence camp, with 40,000  shares  of $5 each.     Mark Madden, of Madden Brothers, bankers and brokets  of  Chicago, has been in the Boundary all  the week,and he is taking up and financing the new company.     Mr. Madden  will be president; Duncan  Mcintosh,  vice-president, and W. M. Law, secretary-treasurer of the new corporation.  W. S.Macy, of Phoenix, J. J.Caulfield  and Mr. Russell, of Greenwood, J. H.  Peet, W. A. Fuller and others  of Spokane, are among the old shareholders.  About $25,000 in shares will be placed  in the treasury.  The Piovidence is at present the  banner high grade mine of the Boundary, the recent shipment of three cars  of ore to the Trail smeller netting the  owners $143 per ton, in gold, silver  and lead. Those who have examined  the Providence aie not slow to assert  their faith in the property, which was  a profitable shipper 10 years ago,- and  it is even said that there is a certainty  of the present shareholders drawing b  handsome dividend monthly for a long  time to come.  CHARLES WILSON THE LEADER.  ORANBY TEAM VS. VHE EAGLES.  Great Game of Base Ball (o Be  Played Tomorrow.  Tomorrow afternoon one of the greatest games of bnse ball ever pulled off in  Phoenix will take place at the local  grounds, the contestants being the  Granby team and that of the Eagles.  The latter have been putting in all their  spare time this week practicing.  It goes without saying that the game  will be a "hot one" from every standpoint, and that some remarkable playing will be seen. A brass band will  be on hand and refreshments will not  be lacking for the enthusiastic fans.  Judge Williams and J. F. Hemenway  will be the umpires and see that the  fearful and wonderful plays are properly decided. The following is the line  up of the teams:  l-'agles  C-rflnbys  .bis. Miirhsall .  . Capt. ..  .

Last week Sandon's mines shipped  260 tons of ore.  Rossland mines shipped 7,860 tons  of ore last week.  A Kansas zinc smelter is in the market for Slocan oie of this kind.  The Cai iboo Consolidated  has ad  opted electric drill's for cutting its bed-  tock flumes.  Ten feet of solid ore running $11 a  ton has been struck in the Green  Mountain mine, Rossland.  The men at the Washington mine,  Slocan, struck last week because a  Chinese cook was installed.    '  A recent examination of the Ymir  mine showed 106,000 tons of oie ii.  sight���enough to run the large stamp  mill for two and a half yea is.  A splendid strike of free gold ore is  reported in the ciosscut being run b\  the Ophir-Lade Co. on the Rossland  claim of the Imperial group, Lardeau.  Eighty-five tons of Velvet oie recently yielded 109 ounces gold, 71 ounces  silver, 13,227 pounds copper, wet assay; net proceeds from smelter, $2,441,  or an aveiage of $28.71 (^5 14s 9d)  per ton.  made for export before December which  will aggregate 12,000 to 15,000 ton1,  per month. This should carry the  price of copper legitimately to 13 or 14  cents per pound in this country and  and advance the price in London ;��io  to ^15 per ton. ��� Western Mining  World.  THE RIGHT SOOT.  Or. Gordon, of Pboenix Is a Qood Mao for  s Town.  Dr. Gordon, of l'hoenix, was in town  several days last week the guest of Dr.  King. Dr. Gordon is an exceedingly  pleasant gentleman to meet, and a valuable man lor any town to have as a  citizen. It would pay the council of  Phoenix Jo send him out once a year  to spread abroad the good things of thai  town. An easy talker, conservative in  his statements yet emphatic in hisdec-  laiatious, he never quits.  Phoenix and the l'oundaiy country  seem to be his religion, and he preaches  the gospel of prospeiit; and good will  lo all. He says l'hoenix is the best  town in British Columbia, that it has  the best mines, the best newspaper and  best prospects for the future. The  doctor is the kind of a man who will  make a knocker feel sony he was ever  born. It is such men thatlielp 'o build  up towns. They create confidence  and make men glad that they are on  earth urovided they live'in Phoenix.���  Cranbiook Heiald.  D. J. MATHESON,  INSURANCE AGKN1*,  F1KK, L1FK, ACC DfcNT.

Phoenix Federal Labor Union   No. 155. ���   Meets Thursdays at 8 p. m. at Min-   ers' Union Hall.   KD BROWN. Pics. AUGUST I'lr.GER. Sec'y.  Out of 230 votes at the conservative  convention there was but one against  -party lines, and that one was personally in favor of the plan.  There is a general feeling that times  generally are on the mend in the  Boundary, and that the trend will continue till they are better than ever  before.  The output of gold for the Quesnel  Forks division of Cariboo will not be as  large as was expected, owing to,a shortage of water for hydraulicing, but in  the Barkervilie section the results ol  the season's woik are reported as the  best for many years.  No End of Places Where they tan Be  ixed.  It is strange how a business man will  use a rubber stamp in this a^e of advanced piinting. A rubber stamp on a  bill he id, letter head or envelope is recognized at once by anyone, and it carries with it an air of cheapness that is a  positive injury to the man who uses it.

That was a clever move of the conservatives to declare in favor of mine  taxation being on the net output. To  that extent, at least, the mining people  will be with them.  Probably more men from foreign  parts visited the large Boundary mines  in the last two weeks "than in any similar period. - That is one kind of ad-  vertiting that counts.  Party lines in provincial politics were  ���declared for in no uncertain terms at  1   V        I F ,    Fv ,  the Revelstoke conservative convention  . last Saturday.

A new townsite is being laid out a  mile from Golden, where a smeltei  will be operated.  J. Pridham, of Kelowna, got $3,600  ed in a rubber stamp community, says:  If lhe business man sees fit to daub  his note heads and envelopes with a  rubber stamp, and thus leave outsiders  to think there are no printers in town,  he ought to be salted. Such a man as  that, when he comes to die, should have  his obituary and the usual icsolutions  of his lodge printed on a board fence  with a rubber stamp. When he has a  boy at his house, or a party, or a son  or daughtei married, a full account of  the important event might be printed  on a sheet ot wrapping paper and tacked on his front door, and when he is a  candidate for office he might stamp a  label to the effect that he wants to be  constable 01 road overseer or justice 01  the peace, as the case may be, and pin.  to the Bosom of his pants. And when  the opposition jumped onto him he  might just stamp another label saying  it is a blamed lie, and pin that on, too.

The government will  not fail to readjust this matter in tlie  near future.  The Butte meeting of the Mining  Congress was one of the most successful yet held. Important action was  taken in regard to the establishment of  a department of mines by the United  States govemment.  Premier Dunsmuir sailed fiom London this week, en route home. He  will piobably have something to say  about party lines in the present government, which is stirring up such a  tempest in a teapot.  Those British editors who saw the  Phoenix mines last week, thought they  were worth the cost ofthe entire trip  to visit Probably never again will  ' they see as much ore at one time. It  is the best advertisement in the old  countiy the Boundary ever had.  Some men have queei ideas of the  ethics of journalism. If they disagree  with their confreres on any point they  descend to personalities and villifica-  tion. Others think it more manly to  take a dignified position. The leading  public is not slow to decide which type  they prefer.  Bombastic booming is something  like a boomerang. It is more than  likely to affect disastrously the person  or place that sends it forth. In the  Boundary country the facts  are  big  cherries and plums this season.  Last week the first issue ofthe Mor-  risey Miner, was published in the new  coal town of that name. F. E. Simp  son, of the Cranbrook Heiald, is the  publisher, and the new weekly is all  right.

With a quiet step I entered  Where the elii dren.were at play;  I was brooding o'er some trouble  Which had met me unawaies,  When a little voire came ringing,  "Me is creepin' up the Btaiis."  Ah, it touched the tenderest h<*art-8trinj->  With a breath and force divine,  And such melodies awakened  As no woiding can delinu!  And I turned to seo our darling,  All forgetful of my cares,  When I saw the little creature  Slowly creeping up the stairs.  Step by step glie bravely (.���lumbered  On her little hand** and knees,  Keeping up a constant chattering,  Like a magpie in a tiee;  Till ut last she reached the topmost,  When o'er all her world's afTnirs,  She, delighted, stood a vic-tnr  After creeping up the stairs.  Fainting heart, behold a.n image  Of n.an's brief and struggling life,  Whose best prizes must be captured  With a. noble earnest strife,  Onward, upward, reaching over,  Bending to the weight of cares;  Hoping, fearing, still expecting,  We. go creeping up the stairs.  On their steps may be no carpet,  By their sides may be no rail;  Hands and kne.es may often pain us,  And t e heait muy almost fall,  Still, above there is the glory,  Which no sinfulness impairs,  With its rest and joy for ever,  After creeping up the stairs.

Just now one can hear almost any  kind of a rumor in a mining or'smelling  way to suit his taste, and with most of  them the Snowshoe mine is associated.  Last week a report from Grand Koiks  had it that the Snowshoe diiectors  had heen looking at a ''provisional "  smelter site, but Mr. Wateilow. denied  ihis. Then the Greenwood smeitei  was to be combined with the Snow-  shoe, and have two or three furnaces  and a couple of converters added. The  Sunset smeller was also mixed up with  the Snowshoe, aiid so was lhe Brooklyn  group'in' this camp. And so lhe stories ran. < ;  ���������  Now the Old Jackdaw submits that,  while lhe Snowshoe isdeveloped to the  stage where it could maintain an ore  output sufficient to run two smelter  furnaces, the management will hardly  build their own .reduction works at this  time, and also buy an iron mine to secure lhe requisite fluxes. It is much  more likely that a deal would be made  with one of ihe Boundary Creek smellers for an interest iu the plant, in order lo save on the custom charge foi  treatment���a most' onerous burden to  the Boundary's, low grade ores. By  such an arrangement the Deadwood  camp mines would supply lhe iron and  die Snowshoe* could furnish the lime  that' was needed.  . w . ���       .  That there is something in the wind  is evident from the fact that Iv W.  Thomas, lhe U. C. Copper Co.'s consulting engineer, was sent post .-.haste  from New York, armed with authority  to do business.    Just   then  the  thiee  t  Snowshoe directors  also happened to  be in Greenwood.  By   icquest   the   Pioneer   herewith  epublishes the report of lhe remarks  nade by Wm. Yolen Williams last week  it the luncheon given to British Editors  it the Snowshoe mine in response to  ihe toast to "The Mining Industry."  Mr, \V. Y.  Williams, siiiHiinlWHloiil  p.f tlii!

Knowing thip, they had commenced the erection of a much larger  com pressor plant, which, when completed, would be the largest in Canada, and  when this new plant was in 'operation ii  would be as easy to mine 5,000 tons per  ���lay as it was now to mine 1,500 tone. Il  must be remembered that in order to d< -  velop these great ihiue-* a large amount  of money was needed, and also a e.weid  erable amount of time, but he felt confident that the money so invested would  return' good ] rofits.'

While   Mr.   Archer  does not  claim any boom at  present  in   Kaslo,  he says there are more  mines  within  ten  miles  of that   city than within; a  similar distance of any other Kootenay  town, and   that   the  Great  Northern  will surely build a smelter there.  ���*���  In the beginning God created the  heavens, the earth, then the editors,  then the liberal advertiser and the  prompt paying subscriber���which was  all very good.

Nor does the  heroine, when starving to death in the  latest black cashmere ."Dally Hint from  Paris,"  evince  more  trepidation, than  does  the average    matron,  when  the  leader in her particular brand of "sas-  ��lcty" drops In and finds her In a cotton wrapper with her store teeth In a  tumbler of water and her magnificent  chevelure lylnjr on top of tho bureau.  There are calamities Just as soul-harrowing In the domestic circle as In the  drama.   The, trouble Is that the play-  wrlirhts have, never token hold of them  In the true spirit of discovery.  We will lake as an example one heroic Incident that lately happened In this'  city when a prominent, citizen Induced  a small girl to save her life by Jumping  from the wlndowsll! of a burning house  on to the tails of his ulster, which she  accomplished without even breaking his  flask.    We can easily picture to ourselves how this could be worked up for  the stage.   The Angel uheelld Is backed  up.on the wlndowslll will a pound Of  red Are 'burning on a tin shovel behind  her.   Thehefo comes tearing on from  the side scenes. He sees her, and clasps  his'hand to his forehead.   (Heroes always do that.   It Is a kind of a send-  off.)   He seizes* a handful of clustering  locks from his w-lg and tosses It Into  the air.   It comes down "Tails!"   The  checlld niust be saved.    With a  wild  wrench he whips off his liver-pad and  holds   It   outstretched : In  his    strong  arms.  The cheelld Jumps and rep-hounds  from it like a half a brick from a book-  agent's cheek.   Once more she springs;-  and again he is foiled:   With a cry of:  anguish he hurls the'liver-pad at the  sneering villain and catches her on.his  breath.   And as she Is. lowered In safety  to  the ground   we  see  the  <iuiverlng  body of the villain nailed fast to the  blazing ruins by the faithful liver-pad.  There  Is another point  to  which  I  would  like   to   draw   attention.    And  that Is the way In which Inanimate objects are  neglected.     We have dogs,  geese, chickens  and  poultry In melodrama.   But that Is all.   I was once acquainted with a gentleman who played  a cake of Ice In the river scene In "Uncle Tom's Cabin."   And the barrel in  "Panjandrum" was a most lovable per- |  sonage oft the stage.   Many friends of  mine   have  also  formed   part   of   the  "hoarse gathering murmur" w*lch always arises In the wings -.yhen the hero  Is getting into a remarkably tiffht place.  But these^ were not strictly Inanimate  objects.   They drew salaries, and wore  red  neckties  on   Sundays.    What   we  need is a further extension of the drama i!rom the farmyard to the grocery  counter, and the hardware store.''" And-  we_ shall get  it.    We shall yet see a  drama  in   which   the   leading comedy  part is played   by   a   tin   of   canned  salmon    and    the   heroine    Is    saved  ��from the villain's clutches by.a barrel  of patent glue.     And  why should  we  not?   There are many comedians now  on the stage who would compare unfavorably from an intellectual standpoint  with  a  tin  of   canned  salmon.     And  there are heroes beside whose personal  charms a barrel of glue Would s#hlne as  a  paragon  of  pulchritude.    A* tin  of  canned salmon would  prove far mort-  useful to the heroine when she is lost  on the sandy desert, or afloat on the  lonely raft in mid-ocean, than a comio  Irishman with a Coney Island brogue.  If she did not care to tackle it herself  she could feed it to the villain and tie  him up in so many knots that it would  take  a  traction   engine  to  straighten  him out.   And the dramatic possibilities of a barrel of glue are simply Illimitable.   She could use It for sticking  to  everything  from  the  angel cheeild  to the papers proving her to be rightful  heiress to the old baronial home. When  the  villain   sprang  upon   her,   hissing  out "At last I have you in my pow-  er-r-r!"   she   could   paste   him   to   the  .titchen stove and go out for a walk.  How would  the band of Moorish brigands look If she stuck them all to the  adjacent rocks by the  slack of their  loose  trousers,  while  the  manly  hero  .vent through their pockets?   A dab of  glue on her wlndowslll when the murderer was creeping, knife in hand, into  her lonely bed-chamber,  would compel  him  to  stay  there nil   night  or  complete his crime in a costume which the  management would not stand for even  for a moment.   And then how useful It j  would, bo to help her to adhere to her  salary.   It Is true that they might have  to soak  the hero  In hot  water to get  him away from her.   But then he often  richly deserves to be soaked.   In every  other  Instance   the   faithful   glue   pot  could give cards and spades and little  casino to the most useful comedian who  ever trailed the villain to his lair.  These are only two of tho Instances  In which the use of Inanimate objects  In the cast would increase the novelty  of the drama. Hut their number could  be Indefinitely Increased. We have long  had the wooden ctor. Why should we  stick at the inanimate tragedian?  Herein we have a bright Idea for the  budding playwrights who have dramatized every book that has a circulation of over ten copies, until the principal value we place on the dictionary  Is tho fact that even the most ambitious of them have never used it as the  basis of a romantic play. And we  charge nothing for this hint to dramatists. It is an absolutely free graft.���  Montreal "Sunday Sun."  Curious  A-...  News.

The Department holds,that the  Islands are still in a condition ot war.

The strange story of the elopement of  an ordinary milch cow with a bull  moose cornea from Lake Onawa, a  pretty sheet of!water In the hills of  Piscataquis County, Maine, much frequented by sportsmen from the big  cities. The cow was the property of  Dr. A. T. Sandon of New York, whose  cottage is located on the shore of Ona-  wa, and she was kept in a pasture enclosed by a rail fence. A big moost  had been several times seen hanging  around the cottaj/e grounds late at  night, displaying great boldness. One  night he came close up to-where the  cow was, and the two seemed to be.  good friends. Late at night a tremen���������  dous crash was heard, and next morning the fence was a wreck and the cow  gone. Neither sho nor the moose ha*  been seen since.

"Doesn't it make you the least bit en-  Tlous to see what elegant furniture  Mrs. Eyefly is putting into her house  next door?" "Not a bit. My husb.-Fiid  says it will be sold by the sheriff within  six months���and I'll be there to buy."���  Chicago "Tribune."  N these days of strenuous parentage, It may not be amiss to sug-  , -gest mildly that there may be, in  the constitution of a family, such  a thing as too much parent.   Time was  when being a parent was incidental to  other business in life.   Our grandfath-p  ers 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  (���"hastened.   .They were whipped when-  they told lies, and occasionally when  they, did no.t.   They learned to read at  four;  were put to work at five, as n  matter of course; and developed, In due  time, the stuff that men are made of.  There was never any particular fuss  about it.    The larger the family, -the  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 tlie remnant who had the courage to  stay at home and grow up.it may be  said   that   they  made  admirable citizens.    They had the 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   iii  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 us  play  with  our children;" nnd  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 note*  on the bumps, phrenological; the othe  kind the modern child Is never allowec  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 unple.islng.   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   In-longed   to  the  old  school, and  disciplined him within an  inch of Ufe.   And now his children belong   to   the  ncv.    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 fire and draw a comfortable,  grown-up breath, and gather strength  and wisdom for the morrow.  As we watch him, we are reminded  of the pleasant old gentleman wiho,  across the reception-plate, is accosted  by the genial young girl: "After all,  sir, there's nothing so delicious as tha  wlflg of a chicken. Is there?" And  the old gentleman: "I don't know, my  dear. When I w.is young t'he old people always ate th.�� wings, and now I  am old the young people eat them. I  have never tasted the wing of a chicken."���From the "Contributors' Club."  Oregon WAR. & Nav. Co.  Oregon Short Line R. R.  Union Pacific R.R.  ONLY LINE EAST  VIA  Salt Lake and Denver.
