i conl fields in Easl Kootenay district, in whul is known
as the Clow's Nest pass, lies in a
south easternly direction from
Fort Steele, a distance to the
nearest available coal about 111)
miles. The western outcrop of
the field is on the side of the
mountain in the valley of Elk
river, "one of the largest tributaries of the Kootenay river," on
the eastern side the coal seams
have been traced a distance of 40
miles, with surface cross cuts
made at intervals showing seams
and walls. The lowest known
seam is some 1500 feet above tho
drainage level of tho valley, and
is 30 feet in thickness, 100 feet
higher there is another seam 30
feet thick, then comes a seam 15
feet thick, then a small 3 foot
one. then a 7 foot one, then
another 30 foot seam, and above
those are 5 more workable seams
from 4 to 10 feet in thickness.
Eleven seams in all making a
total of 1-18 feet in thickness of
coal exposed. These seams dip
with tho mountain easterly at
an angle of 30 to 35 degrees, the
upper seams having the least
There are three large creek's
cutting this coal field, and the
seams are exposed on the banks
of those creeks, and openings can
be, made to mine the coal without
much preliminary expense. The
cuts made by the creek being
more valuablo than so many
tunnels to prospect tho coal, be
cause there is room to operate
the mines on both sides of the
creek, and the mines are proved
to be permanent without any
cost, in fact nature did tho prospecting.
In addition to the coal on Elk
river, further oast on Martins
creek, and other tributaries of
Mitchell creek, "whicli is a fork
of Elk river," there is another
large body of coal, "above tho
Elk river field" but of smaller
aroa. a great amount of this field
having been carried away by
natural causes through tho
different ages since tlie coal was
formed. The aggregate of the
depth of the seams of coal in the
upper basin is some what more

Editor of Prospector
Dear Sir:-—
I may interest your many
readers and subscribers by a few
comments on the Placer workings
on Wild Horse creek. First you
notice a great improvement on
the Inviota Hydraulic property
and plant, there are three Monitors at work, all well plaoed. and
apparently doing good work,
with some thirty men running
two shifts " night and day."
Upon this property there has
been a great improvement during
this mining season, having laid
an entire new line of heavy steel
piping from New Victoria ditch
into the claim, which gives a
pressure of about 500 feet, which
is ample force for cutting the
blue gravel, and will undoubtedly
give good results in the future,
as this property has been worked
in a slip-shod manner heretofore.
A line of pipe has also been laid
this season from the china ditch
into the works with a pressure
of 250 feet doing good execution
on tho gravel. These improvements have all been made this
year at a great expense and
much time, so far as actual mining is concerned for this season.
Although the improvements will
last and do good service for many
years to come. "From all
appearances," from what I know
this company have enough ground
to last them 1011 years or more.
Had the Invicta oompany a
derrick run by water power to
place the largo rocks back and
keep them out of the dump, the
property could bo worked to a
bettor advantage. There is every
reason to expect that this property will pay a handsome dividend to shareholders after this
season for many years to come.
Tho Nip & Tuck Co. on the
other side of the creek are wash'
ing oil a great quantity of dirt,
mid should have a good clean up,
although they have had a great
deal of preparation to make
"which cost lots of time" laying
new pipe and new Humes etc, in
fact this company had lo reconstruct the whole workings of tlie
mine at a groat expen lituro of
time and labor which takes money
lo accomplish.
The Chinese company are doing
good Work on the hill ski" near
the Nip it Tuck, they having to
make extensive preparations before starling their pipe, but arc
now in good working order,
Several Chinese companies an
at work- in the lied of Wild Horse
creek, some of them having wing
dams, one company of Chinese
having llumed tlie creek now thi
mouth of Brewery creek at a
cost of $1 iiiU, and are likely 11 do
well lis litis ground has not been
worked before, as it was too narrow to wing iliini, so Hint Ibis
company are almost sure lo do
well Ibis season,
A company will be formed lo
work the Norbury, Wallinger
and McVittie ground which lies
north of the Nip & Tuck property, and opposite to the Invicta
ground, this is considered good
property as gold can be found in
the gravel almost any where.
Application for the leasing of
the adjoining ground has been
made by other parties, so that
next season, in all probability at
least 8 or til different companies
will be in active operations on
Wild Horse creek.
A rich strike of galena has
been made on tho divide between
(i mile and Tracy creek. Barney
Quinn of Spokane is the lucky
Under. The. ledge is about six
feet in width with three' feet of
solid ore, and has been traced for
a distance of 4,500 feet, four locations have been made on the
load, which are called Ihe Lady
Ann grout), the other claims are
the Hunter. Pansy and Heliotrope
This makes the 2nd strike that
has been made in this vicinity
during the last two weeks.
The owners of Ihe Lost Art
and X Ray claims which adjoins
the Sullivan group on the north
have been limiting overtures to
the owner of the Gift chums
without coming to tiny understanding, as the owner of the
owner of tlie Gift holds the property loo high considering the
amount of work done on the property.
' The owners of the Big Chief
Eureka, Geneva and Lillie Chief
havo made an offer to parties in
West Kootenay to work the property, giving a one third interest
in the above claims in consider
ation of the said party doing
S5,UU0 worth of development
work on the proporty.
The Sullivan Hill property is
rapidly coming to Ihe front, there
are now 2S locations made in llinl

There are every year men starting In
aa farmers who have no cows or cny
kind, says an Iowa writer in the Western
Rural. This class will, as a rule, Hud it
lo their interest not to slock up the lirst
year with the full number ot cows they
expect to keep. This Is because it will
be found almost impossible to buy the
best cows out of any herd. It Is bettor
to raise a herd of dairy cows—better for
several reasons. First, by using miles
of Improved dairy breeds a better v-Iass
of cows can be raised than can, as a rule,
be purchased; second, they will be more
gentle if properly trained from calfunod
to maturity; third, they are more contented, and contentment counts.
At the bottom of all successful dairying, whether conducted entirely on the
farm or partly as associated dairying, is
dairy education, dairy habits, and sometimes it may be called dairy instinct.
Instinct Is said to be the sum of Inherited
habits, This Is doubtless the best definition that can be given of It. Hence the
best dairy communities are those where
dairying has been carried on for generations.
Kindness, patience, painstaking, Keen
observation and steadfastness of purpose
are all Important factors in producing
good results, If dairying is not thought
to be worth your best efforts let it alone
by all means. Let it alone if It Is u'k>
some to you. Devotion and application
to an enterprise begets a love for it, or
it should, and If tt does not, there Is
something wrong.
There Is a moral side to dairying. Regular habits are acquired. Men who beep
cows must be at home at milking time-
home is a good place. Very few rjood
dairy men are whisky drinkers. Dairy
communities, as a rule, furnish but little
business for lawyers. Dairying is educating and elevating if Intelligently followed; this is especially true of home

Miss Giles Cor two years has been a
teacher In the public schools of Helena.
She Is a woman about 35 years of age
and very Intelligent. Those who have
had the honor of her acquaintance speak
of her in flattering terms of praise. She
did not apply Cor a reappointment this
year, a fact which led some nf her friends
to suspect that whioh has happened.
Miss Hoover, her friend, mentioned In
the account of the wedding, is also a
teacher In the Helena schools.

"whether Cleveland will vote tor Bryan

"whether lie won't vote at all." At" ir
voicing these wonders the political knowledge of the town Is at a standstill.
The sleepy gosstpers are nroused ovary

Arbitration Is almost Invariably prefer*
able to litigation. It is not only the
easiest, quickest and cheapest way to
settle disagreements, but saves much
vexation and subsequent dissension, says
the Victoria Province. Were Individuals,
corporations and nations to arrange .hear
disputes by arbitration Instead of resorting to litigation and warfare, the people
would Iw saved millions of treasure, and
the world spared much shedding of blood.
A peaceful settlement of difficulties is
usually followed by prosperity, while
going to law or war usually results In
loss and suffering to both contestants.

Mr. Cleveland purchased Gray Gables
and the lund around u tor tne 'particular
purpose of shutting himself off from the
rest of the world for three months In the
year, and he succeeds. It Is web tinier-
stood thnt no one Is to call upon blm or
Mrs. Cleveland unlesB previously Invited. Within five or six miles of the
house are the country homes of numerous friends of the family, the Appletons
and Jeffersons of New York, the Parkinsons, Hurdlngs and Wllllainses of Boston, but none of these break the long established rule, with the exception of Joe
Jefferson, who Is always welcomed, :.nd
be comes to see Mrs. Cleveland and the
three little girls whenever he drives thnt
Mr. Cleveland's life here would bo monotonously wearisome to most men. For
a week at ti time he does not see any ono
except his family nnd his house servants.
Of the latter there are quite a number.
There are two nurses and a governess
for the children, Thero Is the colored
steward, William Sinclair, who purchases
all the supplies for the house and manages things generally. There is the coachman and a butler, the latter a young colored man. Then there Is a colored .m »k.
a laundress, an upstairs girl and Mrs,
Cleveland's maid. Two farmhands are
also employed and last but not least,
there Is "Bud" Wright nnd his wife, who
take enre of the place all tho year round.

Bud Is certainly the most Important
person about the place, It Is ho who goes
fishing with the president every day; be
digs the bait, sails the catbont ttutll,
manages tho engines In tho launch Father, or row the president about In Ihe
Two Sisters. Ho knows every smiaro
foot of the broad water running out from
the bay for 20 miles In any direction, and
the exact spot to anchor for the particular
kind of llsh tho presldont mny bo titter.
He Is a curious man, with a high idea of
ihe equal rights of good American ..itl-
aens, He talks with a twang that would
put a banjo to shame, and he nlways
carries with him a stock of funny Tories, most of them nuns grown with age
and about as mirthful as the Puritans
who originated them, These ho doles out
to Mr. Cleveland with charming freedom,
The president pnict.cn.lly lives out cf
doors. He Is up In tho morning ut tl
o'olook, and oftentimes, breakfasts before
ihe rest of the family are out of bed. He
shaves himself every morning, and bis
hand Is as steady as a rock. Generally
lie Is ready to start on f> Ashing trip at

While in town the other day Hon. Allen Weir ot Olytnpla drilled Into a reminiscent mood, and told Ihe following,
says S. L. Crawford in tho Seattle I'ost-
A lank, raw-boned Georgian named
Shaw, who lived al Dunganess, In Clallam county, in early days, was justice
of the peace, lu the course of his duties us "squire" many ludicrous incidents
happened. He wns a very illiterate man
and talked habitually lu southern negro
dialect. Upon one occasion Shaw was
called upon to nlllciatc In performing a
marriage ceremony, uniting bis partner,
named Thornton, In wedlock with a fair
widow. The affair was public and excited much interest, It occurred on a Suu-
dny afternoon, when everybody for miles
around bad come to town. Shaw had
greased his boots in honor of Ibe occasion, and wore bis brand-new buckskin
"galluses" conspicuously. Before commencing the ceremony he Impressively
removed nu enormous quid of tobacco
as a useless obstruction to free articulation, hitched up his pnnls and sailed In,
Transllxing Ihe culprits wllh his eagle
eye he sternly ordered them lo stand up
—which they proceeded lo do In fear and
trembling. The largo audience was on
tlploe of expectation, and llio bronthloss
silence was broken by Shaw's pompous Inquiry of the groom as to whether
or not he Intended in take "this hyor
women) as bis lawful wedded wile," etc.
Thornton, who was a little slow mid had
lbe appearance of hashfuliicss, shifted
uneasily from olio fool lo the other, ami
dually said thai he "guessed lhat was
the calculation," Upon receiving satlsf.u-
tory answers to similar questions from
the bride, Shaw strelched himself to his
full 0 reel 2 Inches nf helghl, and. after
surveying the crowd Impressively, proceeded io declare in awful solemnity;
"Now, Ihorofoi'O, what me mid God liov
.lined together, let no man pui asunder."

"ll was ibe Pluto-Bannock war of

Walla Walla at the outbreak of hostilities

months we had been in tlie mountains
lighting the Indians, and al the time I
speak ui had practically brought ihem
under subjugation, so many of the Plutes
having crossed buck Into Nevada lhat
ihe lighting nilghl be considered over,
"The Bannocks and Plutes for anmc
reason had, during the war. shown a
bitter antipathy to sbeepborders, sheep
and sheep men generally, probably on mint of the grazing sheep destroying

shcephorder to be captured meant death
by fearful torture, and the hamstring.ng
of the baud of sheep in his charge. I
suppose no less than tiU herders died at

across the charred bodies of iwo nnd even
three of those unfortunate men, each one
of whom had been killed by it separate

held a huge orgle during the burning and
otherwise disposing of the captives.*'
"Well, at last we bad been ordered

among the ollleers and men of the command that not a shcenhenrder was 't ft

of our surprise when, just before reselling Meacham station, a lull, gaunt form
broke through the ehapparral bordering

"The colonel replied that we were.

Though It. was still the Easter
his friend Lyman was "up" roti
his llmil schools. There woro, besides,
several old Radlicldliins also "up" lu ine
university for a similar purpose, ami Jack
felt lhat If ho could satisfy old "Dicky"

that, he wns a 111 and proper person lu
enter the college, his first visit lo Oxford
would be extremely pleasant.
lie was directed by the porter to college
hall, where be found some Ml oihcr men
wttliing. In a. minute or two the senior
tutor arrived and handed each a paper;
and for Hie next three hours naught was
heard but tho scampering of busy pens
or Hie muffled sigh of blm who was
haply "stumped."
Now, the candidates had two papers in
the morning and one in the afternoon,
leaving the "buoks" (thai la, tho two
Greek plays and tho Latin nouthot) and
Hie remaining paper for the following
morning. On going over the results with
Lyman in the evening, Crawford made
out lhat wllh the exception of a shaky
"prose" he had done as well as lie could
have hoped for. His fate, therefore, entirely depended upon Ids prollciency in the
set subjects. Now, the system pursued at
St. Boniface is as follows: The men are
examined In their books viva voce. Two
of the dons sit at the high tables during
the lust paper and take the candidates
one after the other lu alphabetical order
—sometimes afler the "next, please" manner which obtains In a barber shop. Tlie
two examiners in question were "Dicky"
Blades himself and ono Knyvett, the
junior fellow uf Sl. Boniface.
This young don had only been elected
the previous term, hut owing to the unexpected absence of the junior tutor he was
intrusted with the task. Crawford came
third on ihe list. He devoutly hoped lhat
be would be taken by Blades, a cheery,
kindly old boy, who, by reason of having
In the misty past rowed once In tbe St.
Boniface "Torpid," kept a tender place In
his heart for Ihe nol too clever athlete.
Knyvett, on Hie other hand, was the typical smart young "sprig"—the man who,
In a system of open competition, Is pretty
sure to win bis fellowship and express regret thereat ever after. With grim forebodings Crawford watched his thin lips,
as toying with his eyeglass he listened
to the luckless boy before him blundering
through a ditllculi passage. Ills forebodings were realized. Knyvett hnd "rushed" his man long before bis more easygoing colleague had not to the second author. Crawford heard bis name called In
sharp academic accents, and approached
the table with a trembling at the knees
and n vacuum below the third button of
his waistcoat, which he had nol experienced since bis lirst match against ihe
JI. C, C. He sat down and look the proffered volume, a plain text of a tireek
Mow, Jack Crawford's acquaintances
with the classics did not resemble Mr.
Woller's knowledge or l,ondon; 11 was
neither varied nor peculiar. He had got
up most of the difficult passages In two
plays; but, alas! be soon discovered lhat
the mechanical system of going over
books with a crib is not quite the same
as an actual acquaintance with the language. The particular passage al which
he was put was extremely difficult, and
Crawford was a person who needed time
for reduction. He commenced, made a
mistake, was sarcastically Interrupted by
his examiner, got hot and Hurried, lost
bis head, made "pi" of (he Illustrious
dramatist he was tackling. Why dwell
on the painful scene? The thlu-llpped
don, who hud never handled an oar or a
cricket bat, who spent his undergraduate
days In snug, self-complacent solitude
had about as much sympathy with an
athlete ns would an oyster. Ho enjoyed
the fullle struggles of the panting giant
before him, and kept up a playful stream
of sarcasile comment. Certain pnssagi
In Virgil Crawford succeeded In tram
biting—In a sense, but when he returned
to his seal be fell his certain destiny wu
a "plough."
(Jreat was lite conslernntlon among the
old Rudtleldlans when, later on, Crawford
told the story of his disaster in Lymnn'i
run ins.
"It Is a doticed bad business, Jack.'
said his host, dejectedly. "I''roiu what
you say and from what I know ot that
dirty little Sammy Knyvett, you're a sale
'plough.' There's just a ghost of a
chance. I told old Dicky Blades alt aboul
you, and Ihal you were tbe best public
school bat of the year, and tt meant having another Roulface mini in ibe 'varsity
eleven, nnd I know, if lie could, he'd let
you through, especially If by doing so he
would annoy Knyvett. You see dear old
Dicky likes bis glass of port and a story,
and gund fellowship (with a small "I"J In
the common room, and It riles hlm to see
tho little prig sipping his toast and water
and sneering al everybody who lacks

1 don't see how we can go behind Kny-
vell's decision, Luckily, I have to go to
blm al \\ with a '(treats' essay, so I'll
mention lo hlm casually Hun you didn't
do yourself justice, They won't put up
the^llst nf the sticcesful men until midday tomorrow, mid perhnps hu may seo
Knyvett about yon,"
This seemed but a slender thread of
hope to cling to, and Jack Crawford,
though grateful, was none the less plunged Into despair.
"Hang It nil, Jack," cried Lyman, In
despair, "don't look so mopy. Come, lot's
have a jolly evening, anyway. There's
no hall tonight, us there are not enough
men up. So all you follqws como nnd
have cold supper with blm nt 8 and keep
old Jack's courage up,"
Fortunately for Lyman's project, the
senior tutor did casually Inquire how his
sohool fellow had fared, and the astute
scholar at once replied that Crawford wns
a slow-brained man, who would probably
have done much betler hnd he been examined on paper, and that Mr, Knyvott's
manner, though, of course, porfeclly fair,
was a llttlo disconcerting to a man of dull
wit. Blades made no reply, but Lyman
had unconsciously touched a sympathetic
eord, The good old tutor had reckoned
that Knyvett hnd taken no less than live
more men that morning thnn ho himself
had, Ho also knew from Ions experience
that he did not give w man any more lime
than was Just ami reasonable. Moreover,
though busily engaged, he could not fall
to overhear the sparkling siiIIIch Iii which
Knyvett Indulged during Crawford'*
"viva," This, he thought, was not giving
a. man a fair run for bis money, Accordingly, when Knyvcll enme tn bis rooms
about -l wllh the marks uf Ihe men,
Blades could nol help saying:
"I hdo ynu'vi* marked Crawford very

ml the second examination was a mere
form to keep up appearances,
Elated and happy, Hm two friends put
tt flannels and had a game of racquottes
t the Holywell courts.
At il tho party of old Rudholdlans sat
down to a cold supper; a far more luxurious collation than those unacquainted
wlili the resources of a college kitchen
might imagine, especially when Hie ho.sl
supplements tho college beer und wine
wllh a bowl of iced Moselle cup from a
neighboring pastry cook's. This Is, on
tho face of It, an Innocuous beverage;
compounded, however, by a university
confectioner, with plenty of curacoa In it
to tickle the raw palate of tho undergraduate, It Is a good deal more Insidious than
the partaker Is aware of. Moreover, to
fully appreciate its merits it should be
artfully contrasted with other drinks of
ji simple character. In this particular
duty Crawford was not remiss. Ravenously hungry with his hard day's work,
he pitched Into the cold salmon, the pigeon pie, and the beef with hearty zest.
The evening wus warm; the Iced Moselle
cup a revelation; there Is no better beer
in Oxford than In St. Boniface. Chats
over old times and o>u friends necessitated the drinking of their healths; and,
when Great Tom boomed In the distance
and the scout came to clear away, ihe
bowl was empty and the decanters running low. Apart, however, from n feeling
of elation, and a happy disregard for the
future, Crawford experienced no Immediate result from his unwonted potations. And so they all sat round the Oriel
window passing the bottle In the gathering darkness, Suddenly, the college clock
struck 10. Crawford remembered his appointment with the examiner, got up, and
with a slightly unsteady gait, walked out
Into the quad, having promised Lyman
to eome buck and tell the result of the interview. Then, as certain novelists say,
"a strange thing happened." The moment be went out into the night air he
felt the quadrangle whiz round him, and
his logs i-ocked violently. With a ghastly
thrill of horror be realized the truth. He
was drunk! He had no alternative but to
face tin? situation.
So he stood In tne router of the quad
as it whirled around; waited until Kny-
VOtt's staircase came opposite; made a
dash for It and eventually gol to tbe
door, at Which he knocked and entered.
There was a table on which stood scv-
ernl lighted candles, which danced madly
before bis atVrighled gaze, besides them
were the three text books. On the hearth
rug stood Knyvell. who, In Crawford's
eyes, seemed gently swayed to and fro.
A voice which sounded strangely intuited requested hlm in sit down and open
the book at a certain passage.
lie obeyed. With a violent mental effort be began. Again and again be tried
to concentrate bis facuKles. But in vain.
The face of his examiner seemed blttt'tvl
and distant. Tho room swam round hlm;
the words of his prosecutor seemed lo
his dull hearing as Inconsequent as be
was conscious his own wore, nnd after
having unsuccessfully tried to translate
several passages bo could stand .It no
longer, and crying out, "Oh, heavens,
what a beastly and degrading thing it
Is for a man lo gel drunk," be lurched
out of tbe room, made his way as best
he could to his hotel and flung himself
on the bed, nnd wns soon In a drunken
slumber. When be awoke It was n bright
summer morning. Hells were clanging
all round, and by his side, distracted witli
grief, stood Lyman. He had liolleed his
friend's unsteady gait on leaving the
room, and lhat, together with Ibe fact
that Crawford hnd nol returned lo tell
his fate, bad tilled hlm with apprehension
and remorse,
Just as Crawford, now realizing the
whole horror of the sltuntlon. wns telling Lyman his awful experiences, the
under porter of the St. Boniface knocked
at the door and said that Mr. Knyvett
requested to see Mr, Crawford in half an
"You musl go, Jack, at any cost! 'ot
blm have his say. and then Implore him
to forgive you. Don't bother about the
'plough.' take It. Don't you see, If be
makes a fuss about It, and tbe warden
gels lo hear, he will never put you
on Iho college bonks. Ob, Jack, It's all
my fault, Iloro, get Into your tub and
dress as fast as you can."
Within Hie prescribed time Crawford
was standing once mure in the presence
of Rnmiiol Knyvell. Somehow, that gentleman did not appear quite so austere
and conietnpluiius as Crawford might
hnvo expected. He looked rather weary.
Ills eyelids drooped, and his hair looked
less sleek  than ustinl.
"1 have sent fur you, Mr. Crawford, as
you no doubt supposed, tn consequence of
what occurred Inst night." He paused,
but Jack, remembering Lyman's ndvi:e,
held his tongue.   Knyvett continued.

daughters of Uncle Sam being, as n rule,
far too high spirited lo consent to a niai-
rlmonlal union which does not place them
upon n social equality with their husbands, rays Ibe Mew York Journal,
Tlie lirst Instance was that of .Miss
.Mary Esther Lee of New York, who, on
marrying morganatlcitlly Prince Frederick of Schleswig-llolsleln-Souderliiirg-Au-
gustenberg, was created by his friend,
the emperor of Austria, a princess of Mocr
lu her own right. This title she bore until, several years afler Ibe death of
Prince Frederick ,she married the i.ler-
miiu general, Count Wnldorsee, since
when she has been known by his name.
The second case is that of Miss Kllsc
Hensler of Boston, who, on contracting a
morganatic marriage witli the late King
Ferdinand of Portugal (grandfather of
the present king) was created cmmtesH of
lildla. The third case must necessarily
be that ol' the Mew Orleans heiress, Bertha Lewis, who was led lo the altar in
i.ondon on Aug. :>■! nf last year by Prince
Charles Isenburg-BIrsteln, unless be himself has, at the time of bis marriage,
surrendered all bis rights, prerogatives
and status as a prince of his house, jusl
In the same manner as Count Pappen-
helm was compelled to do when he married Miss Wheeler of Philadelphia.
This union of Prince Isenburg has until
now attracted relatively little attention,
but seems destined lo come to the fore In
connection with the somewhat sensational
suit for unpaid commission which Is being brought against the prince by the
broker who placed blm In communication
with his American bride. This Is Hie
first occasion on which an action of this
kind lias over been brought in regard lo
any of these so-called International marriages—that Is to say, union between Impecunious nobles of the old world ami
wealthy daughters of the new world.
Bill ll by no means follows* that this Is
the lirst ease of a failure nn Hie part of
bride and bridegroom lo pay the stipulated commission to the negotiator of what
Is In nine cases out of ten a purely commercial transaction.
Morganatic marriages nre but little understood In Ibis country, where they np-
peat* to be regarded in Ihe light nf something Immoral. This is far from being
the ease. The position of morganatic
wife is perfectly respectable. Her union
receives the sanction und tho blessing of
(he church and the only way in which
It differs from nn ordinary marriage Is
tliat tbe troth Is plighted with the left
hand Instead of Die right and that the
rights of the Inferior of the two contracting parlies are limited. Indeed, the word
"morganatic," derived from the Scandinavian verb "morgyan" (lo limit), implies ns much. Thus a morganatic wife
has no right to her husband's title or fortune.

School wits just out and Jamie Andrews
came Into the house, shutting the door
behind him with an Impntlenl slim.
"I had to bring home my arithmetic

voice. "Tho teachers make us work
awfully hard. I wish I didn't have anything to do."
"Really?" his mother asked, looking up
from her sewing with n questioning smile.
"Yes, really!" Jamie's voice sounded
very positive. "I don't like to work a
bit. 1 wish I didn't have a single thing
to do."
"I saw a boy onco wdio must have felt

to dress respectably, for he was a stout,
well grown lad, ami help was scarce.
However, he preferred io do nothing,

Jamie begun lu look ibougblful,

"I'm going in see how many of my problems I can get before supper," he said.
"I failed tills morning, but I'm not going
to again."
He bad begun lo understand that there
are boiler things thnn having nothing to
do, says Laura Lelgliton In the San l-'ruu-
clsco Cbroulule,
YOUNCI minister tells this on himself: He was In nu Intensely New
lOnglandish neighborhood to supply
the church of the lown morning and
evening. H wus the custom here to send
the parson around Iho circle, so to speak,
and at the house he was lirst introduced
Into for his first evening meal on the Saturday night previous to Sunday, a savory
dish of Boston baked beans was the piece
do resistance of the table. He was .of
New Knglnndish ancestry himself and io
ho full to and ate with a royal relish. He
liked the beuns and he ate enormously—
there was nothing the mutter with the
beans or his appetite,
He did not stuy till night at this home,
but went to another residence. Visions ot
roils and golden brown coffee and perhaps
a bit of broiled steak or a juicy chop
were In his head—or his mouth—as tie
went Into (he dining room, But the principal dish of ibis hose II seemed, on a Saturday night was beatns, so they had
beans for breakfast, and, as the family
was all fond of beans, they didn't have
anything else.
Muklng utit as respectable a show ns
possible, the parson finished his breakfast, went to church, preached to tho
best of his ability, and then, nearly famished with hunger, was escorted to a
third house for dinner. This family was
of the good old puritan type, and they did
not believe in cooking warm meals on the
Sabbath, so they all went lo church to
hear the new minister nnd depended for
their dinner's chief adornment and delight upon the huge pot of beans, which,
depleted somewhat through the family's
attack, was still able to produce enough
leguminous sustenance depths for the
noon-time meal.
The preacher said be wasn't very fond
of beans, but be did Ihe best possible
under ibe circumstances to not show the
full lloodtble of his feelings.
Happily he was rescued in the afternoon
by another member nf the parish, who
asked him over to "have a bile before
meelln' in tlie evenln'."
"We kind o' thought you would like
some baked beans for supper," the good
wife sahl. "We don't usually have "em
for supper, but knowiu' as bow you were
an eastern boy we thought you".I meobe
like a snack of genuine old Roslnu baked
before your evenln' sarmount."
The minister didn't faint; neither did
he swear. He Just, shut his teeth, girded
up his loins and sailed lu.
He stayed In this bouse all night, nnd
when the morning wus come, before time
fur his train, breakfast was served, and
once more (hey had beans, this time
warmed over for a change. More dead
than alive, the young parson made his
way out of the town, And as he did su

A Short Catechism,
Oestlon-Is Ihls country prospering?
Answer-No! H has rarely been further
from it.
0-Wh,.t class are most affected?
A—The farmer chiefly, but the depression extends to all departments of pro-
ductlve industry.
(,! Ih this depression confined to our
own counlry?
A—No, Europe Is equally affected, in
England agriculture is almost totally
ruined and is nearly as bad as in Oer-
Q—To What Is ll attributable?
A—To low prices of all products of
labor, which Is the same thing as high
priced money,
Q—How '-un money be high priced?
A—John Stuart Mill says money Is
bought and sold when we sell or buy
other things with money, When a given
Sum of money will buy an excessive
amount of oilier commodities Its price
may be said  to be high.
Q—Are not the prevailing low prices
Hie result altogether of Improved appliances for production, such as labor-
saving imjcJ#!Gry?
A No. because money, lhat Is gold.
which Is our only real money, equally
with other things shares In tbe advantage uf cheap production. The Improved appliances of Hie age enier Inio

O- To
en is it
o be attributed?
A—To speculation in money.
O—Bow can money be speculated In?
A—Speculation Is rampant ibe world
over lu everything that a prollt can lie
made In.
ij-But have you ever known of money
Itself being an object of speculation?
A- Yes. Thirty years ago the gold
coin or the United Slates was the principal object of speculation in this counlry. lUven In Detroit there was a gold
hoard al which nightly gold was boughl
and sold for future delivery, ihe speculators gambling on the price It would
command on the date of delivery.
Q At that time gold coin was at a
premium, was it not?
A—True; and for some time was
steadily advancing. One man could
be named who sold out his business for
WHOM in gold, and for a year thereafter
made much more money by keeping bis
gold locked up In bis sufe than he could
have made by employing his capital in
active business. On a larger scale the
same thing Is being done today. Capitalists are drawing Ihelr means from active
business and keeping them In the form
of money because money is steadily advancing.
Q—Can ll be claimed that such extensive speculation tn money is being carried on as ii Is Injurious lo ihe interests
of the community?
A—When there Is such intense speculation In everything else—wheat, pork,
stocks, mines, real estate, everything.
Is it reasonable to suppose ihe opportunities to make profits by manipulating the
value of money will be neglected?
O—But is such profitable manipulation
A—Certainly. If n large capitalist can
loan out all his money and then persuade
congress to Increase the amount of gold
in the dollar, of course when he Is repaid he will reap a large prollt by receiving back more than he loaned.
Q—Hns this ever been done?
A—There Is every reason tu believe that
In this way sliver came to uu demonetized.
Q—How could Ihal redound to the benefit of money speculators?
A—By reducing by one-half the volume
of the money metals, tbe other half
naturally increased in value, and loans
made In sliver became payable In appreciated gold.
O-How can speculation in money be
A—It can not lie entirely; but by the
use of both gold anil silver as money
ll can be greatly restricted and n more
uniform standard of values be maintain-

11 will never do to despise a sentiment
of which the strength lias nol been fairly
tested, says Albion W. Tourgee In the
Chicago Inter Ocean. No one whoss
memory recalls the universal amazement
which was expressed when the know-
nothings carried Massachusetts, and
when the republican vote of ISM was announced, can over question Iho folly of
sneering at an undeveloped political Idea.
The only real test of the strength of the
silver sentiment in the country is the
amazing fact that It has cantured. In the
simplest nnd fairest way, by the spoii-
laneous redaction of popular sentiment,
ihe name and organization of a gre.it
parly, the majority of whose recogntiwd
leaders, as well as tbe entire force of the
national administration, were urraye«
against It. Without money, without compact organization, with a majority of ths
democratic press exerting Its utmost Influence in opposition to It, wdth organizes*
capital arrayed against It, and the whole
force of what Is known as "businesa ls-
I.Tests" exerted to prevent its spread
among the people—in spite of all thesa
opposing Influences the silver sentiment
has so spread throughout the west aud
south as to conlrol a majority of the delegations from more than two-thirds of
the states of the union, nnd to securs
a recognized foothold in almost ull tho
others. The fact Is unprecedented In en-
tent, bul entirely In harmony with all
