NOTE AND COMMENT  One of the evils of- the piesent  system of Jand'tenure in British Columbia, is beginning- to show it<eli  very "plainly in Kootenay just now.  and particularly in tlie northern p.ut  of the district. In this portion of-the  country the lumber" industry is now  rising into considerable iinptiit.ieice  The climate being, inoro lnun.d here  than in South Kootenay, our forests  are more extensive and .our timber  more valuable, aiiel'we are already not  only supplying the* homo- "eniand, hut  our lumber is -lincting a ready ni.iiket  iii the lower country." But the inelttstiy  is hampered hy Uie difficulty expeii-  enced by, nt'-vc-otners, in lhe ts.iwtnill  business in getting timber limits, on  which tei get nut logs. The--timber  all over the country is in (lie possession of corporations and .speculators,,  who have awjuired the limits from the  government in years past fur .1 nine  song, and nre'holding on to it till it  increases in value. They are not fen  the most part making any,other use of  the limits at. all. And the countiy is  being kept b.ic-1". and an important industry -hampered on .account of the  olcLfitsbioiu'd niethods of ^disposing ot  THE COUNTY COURT  The Criminal Cases.���������The Charge of  Assault Against Murphy Dismissed.���������  The Civil Docket.���������The New Court  Room.

"What   coin  was  the   national  Victoria.  property  in    vogue   at  it the pitsouei give you ?'  pieie,  In New Zenliind the government  have for some years past adopted a  more enlightened system of leasing  the vacant lands of the colony, instead  of granting tbein away outright, ftsd  so.rotaining hold of this valuable assent  of the people. In Australia, the s una  plan is now trieel with sheep-farms  with the greatest'success anel satisfaction to all concerned. The lands  remain in the ownership of tho people,  a constant revenue is derived from the  rent for the use. of them, and when the  lenses fall in, tenants who are unsatisfactory in any way can be removed.  This is the most, .ancient, as well as  the most sensible method of land tenure. The idea of possession of land by  purchase is comparatively modem.  All over Europe until the end of the  middle ages land was hold'" by ten mts  who paid for tbe use of it in military  service, and to this day the ultimate  possession of land in England is vested  in the crown. When the Long P.uli.i-  ment abolished feudal privileges in  England, they made a great stroke for  liberty, but with the privileges the  responsibilities disappeared as well,  anel standing armies and national  debts soon began to figure' in histoty.  A return to the idea of land as I he  possessi 111 of the whole people*, the  exclusive use of a. portion of which is  only to be iicqiiiml by lease and not  by purchase, lias been found a powei-  fnl factor in solving the modern social  problem in other colonies of the empire, and there seems no reason why  this province should not follow their  example! with the balance , of her  crown domain still iu her bunds.  ,.

It was a much 11101 u sen-  ous olteuee to escape custody than to  try to pass .a woithless coin iu payment for a meal. However the 111 isoner had had a severe lesson, anel he  woulel only sentence him to two  month's imprisonment to allow him to  get pioper tie.ituienl, the intention of  the bc'iiti'iice being to detain him until healed.

SATURDAY,     OCTOBER  0.     ISO".  TARTE ON BOODLINC  Makers of modern English dictionaries ivill notice with interest  th~ definition given with apparent  authority by Hon. J. Tarte of the  meaning of the word "boodler,"'  a word which is not altogether unknown even in Canadian politics.  Mr. Tartelgave it as follows: "1  would consider a boodler to be a  man who took advantage of his  official position to "divert-putlic  moneys to serve bis own personal  purposes." Without in any way  desiring to detract from Mr.Tarte's  knowledge on this particular  branch of po'!*'(.��������� ..I economy, it is  respectfully siiosestecl that the  definition is not sufficiently broad.  The diversion of "'public" moneys  to serve one's own personal purposes is, according to Mr. Tarte,  boodling in its highest aud noblest  form, but how about the diversion  of "private"., moneys by public  officials for the'.serviee of- their own  personal ends. The latter Mr.  Tarte does not admit to be " boodling'' properly so called. The  i.icest authorities define the verb  " to boodle'" fromlwhich is derived  thecommon substantive " boodle,"  as a regular transitive verb in  which the action passes from the  agent to the object. Consequently  it presumes that there is some person, place or thiugjwhich is to be  boodled, passively of course. "Why  Mr. Tarce limits his delinition to  the boodling of public moneys will  cause some surprise, more especial-  l.v_to boodlers   of  long  standing,  We now beg to call the attention of the Public to our New Lines just received  in   the   following-   articles :  DRY GOODS���������Comprising* the latest designs in  Dress Goods, Cashmeres, Fianellettes, Laces,  Ribbons, Embroideries, etc., etc., imported  direct from Scotland.

It was public  money only, until Tarte ct.Co. got  their bauds on'it, when it immediately degenerated into private  funds and consequently Mr. Tarte  is outside tlie scope of his in  geniously worded delinition. All  of which goes to show that  although Mr. Tarte knows a great  deal in tho abstract about  boodling, his record shows that he  is not a properly defined boodler.

Some of his enemies have,  been rude enough to suggest that  Mr. Tarte himself was a boodler,  inasmuch as iu 1S0O he accepted $5000 from the notorious Mr.  Ernest Pacaud of Quebec. Mr.  Tarte's explanation of the transaction, given on oath a few days ago  in the hearing of the libel charge  against Mr. Greuier of Le Libre  Parole, according to the report in  the Montreal Herald is as follows:  "Towards the end of the vear  1SS0, or at the beginning of 1S90,  during the session at Quebec, Mr.  Ernest Pacaud met me on the  street or at the club. He said there  was an award of arbitrators in  Whelan's favor for SI 10,000, and  the amount was in the estimates.  The Mercier Government was  desirous of having the session soon  over, iind if my friends, the Conservatives, would allow the item  to pass without opposition, he  would be in a position to give me  five thousand dollars. I was a  simple journalist at the timo. I  said to Mr. Pacaud, ' I do not know  what my political friends will do."  Mr. Taillon was then leader of the  Ouposition, and I went to him anel  asked what was his policv regarding the "Whelan claim, lie replied  that he.was di=po=pd to allow the  item to pass as quickly possible. I  told Mr. Pacaud that there would  be no opposition, and he gave me  five thousand dollars. It was not  the country's money."  Mr, Tarte was to procure the  passage by-the Legislature without comment of an item of SM0,-  000 in Whelan's favor, and actually  received, on his own confession  under oath,,, $5000 ��������� for services  rendered in that behalf. ,,, This  S5000 was not, according to Mr.  Tarte, public money, because they  had not actually got the $1-10,000  nt tbe time, and even when they |  The suicide of the Mexican chief  of, police closes an extraordinary  series of incidents only possible  in it country which has no real  respect for law and order. By  command of the chief of police, tlie  man who attempted to assassinate  President Diaz washuugup by the  thumbs and subjected to other  tortures in order to make him  reveal tho names of his accomplices. The . upshot of these  tortures was that the unfortunate  prisoner died before he could be  brought to trial. In order to cover  up his death the police got up a  story of a lynching, and filled the  body with sword thrusts, which a  surgical examination showed to  bave been inflicted after death.  When the story got abroad the  chief of police was arrestodTancf  he has now found an outlet from  the situatiou by suicide, ft is  significant that no one knows how-  he obtained the pistol with which  he shot himself, and equally  siguificant that his action is  approved by public opinion. They  do queer things in Mexico, and ib  is not altogether a cmifortable  place to live iu.  Au old lacrosse man, eay-j  the Montreal Gazette, produces  evidence from the annals of the  game to the effect that thirty years  ago it was recognized that Cauada  was a nation. Tliis is not in disagreement with the reported discovery made by Sir "Wilfrid  Laurier when he was in Paris'la" t  month. It only shows,, that some  great Liberals are slow in catching  on to great events.  AN OLD-TIME REPORT  Speaking of Major Walsh's  appointment as Commissioner in  the Yukon, many old timers will  remember an episode ivhich  happened years ago when the  same Major Walsh was a Superintendent iu the Mounted Police.  Police affairs were not then conducted with' the same rigid  economy as they aro under the  Ilerchmer regime. Among the  official returns'to Ottawa made by  Major "Jim" Walsh from Fort  Walsh at that time was the  following :'  "Fourteen bags of rolled oats,  eaten by in t*.    *  "Twcnty-threo barrels oL' sugar,  ditto.  "Three thousand pounds bacon,  ditto.  "Twenty-five kegs horse shoe  uails, ditto."  The then chief of the hecklers,  M. C. Cameron of Huron, a-ked  the Government of the day for an  explanation of this mysterious  return. Sir John A. Macdonald  replied that the only way  in which he could account  for the consumption in ihe  manner described in the  return was that owing to the  rarity of the atmosphere in the  North West an iron tonic w.is  necessar-y-t-o���������keep^-t-be-r-at-S-otitlie.  (Territories in good condition,  j This story is vouched for by many  old residents of the Territories,  who explain Major "Jim'*," return  by saying that his brother Lou.  the unlimited Lou. was working  for him at the time.

He lias no  special qualifications as dog driver  but will be handy in holding  down claims.  It is now announced that there  was a prospect at one time that  the Grand Trunk would take over  tho Drummond County Railroad.  It would be interesting to know if  the Grand Trunk was to pay  $01,000 a year for a hundred years  for the line.  The sale of another Canadian  mine in England for $750,000, the  bulk of which goes into the  pockets of lucky Winnipeg  citizens, is another instance of how  fortunes are to be made in mining.

To Tin Editor of The Hekald.  Sir : Having received -several inquiries from clilVerent parts of the  countiy re dog driving and winter  travel fn our Canadian North AVest, I  desire through your columns to give a  description of such means of transport  in order that any party or parties  contemplating a winter trip by dog  train may have some idea of what they  are about to undertake. I elo this  because I know 1 am an expert in this  matter, having been all my life in  touch with the frontier and all the  various means of ii transport used  therein. Moreover, from 1SO0 to lSl'S  I was with the first snow of winter  and until the ice melted in the spring  almost constantly on the trip with  clog train,covering every winterdiu-ing  those years several thousands of miles  unclerall the conditions and experiences of such work in a sparsely populated and entirely new 'counli y. During this p-jt-iod 1 bred aud. trained  dozens of dogs for the sled; thoiei'ore  my readers must conceive that I know  what I am writing about.  Suppose then that myself and three  others intend to start for the north  land say on the 1st of December next.  We each secure four strong, well  trained dogs from tluee to four years  olel and harness for these. We also  secure four toboggans or sleds���������these  should be made*"of oak boards, good  and clean limber���������these boaids lo. be  12 feet long, eight inches wide "and  three-quarters of an inch thick; when  the sled is made the head or turn will  take about three and a half feet, leaving eight and a half feet i'or load; the  front of the sleigh should be the full  width of the two- boards, 10 inches,  ind this width taper to about 1!" inches  at the rear end; four neat, strong bars  should bind and hold these bars together, and these should be fastened  cm with good rawhide string, no  screws or nails being allowed in the  make up of these sleds; then all around  the edge of the sleds there should be  strong loops of rawhide fastened to  make what is called the ground  lashing.  Then each sled would want" a wrapper of strong yet pliable canvass. (In  early days we used dressed and well  smoked ieather skins for this purpose).  These canvass wrappers should be 12  feet long and six feet wide. Then each  sled will require two evenly cut and  strong, well tanned leather lines, say  30 feet long: these are for the purpose  of hinding*"the load to the sled. AA7e  have now dogs, harness, sleds and the  necessary eejuipmenl for the sleds.  Let us now proceed to outfit ourselves  with travelling costumes fitting for  this work. AA'e want for each man  two changes of light, soft, hut warm  underclothing,"two flannel shirts, also  combining warmth with lightness,two  pairs of pants made of either well  dressed and well smoked buckskin.or  good soft; mole skin.foiir pairs of socks,  two paii-i of duffles, six pairs of moccasins, one H. B. Co. blanket or cloth  "capot cloak," one broad long worsted  halt. AA'e elo not want nor indeed can  we carry such luxuries as suspenders,  vests, or hpavy fur or cloth coats���������the  only fur might be alight fur_.cape.  Then, as to bedding, each man should  have a light, unlined robe and one  blanket, (failing the robe, then two  blankets will have to he got); these  should be -1-point, white H,B. blankets.  We also want for the party of four  two axes, two kettles, (one smaller  than the other), one frying pan, four  tin cups, and four butcher knives, (the  latter to bo carried in the belts), in  addition each man would need a pair  of well made snowshoes. _   *   -  We coins now to the provisions for  ih____.R__.rl_y.; For men I would provide  peniniiciin, flour, tea, sugar and some  dried fruit. Good pemmican can be  made from beef, and in this way you  get the essence of the meat, in smaller  bulk. To give an idea, in the olden  davs we made 100 lbs. of pemniicau  and 75 lbs. of dried meat from the  llesh and fat of two well conditioned  buffalo cows. These cows would each  dress at least SOO lbs., so it was a case  of making ten into one. The regular  ration in the II.B. Co.'s post per day  to the man was four lbs. of pemmican  or three lbs, of dried meat or eight lbs.  of fresh meat, I think think that  with some bread and now and then  some dried fruit anel half a pound of  pemmican por day a man would stand  hard work for along time.  For the dogs I would make a sort of  hard-tack. This to consist of eqtvil  parts of coarse flour, oatmeal and  tallow. Ithink a pound of such e'ake  per day with an occasional feed of  fish at a H.B, post or Indian camp,  en route, would keep the dogs in good  trim. These dogs are fed but once in  the 24 hours, and that is at night after  camping. Though I very often did  give my dogs just the least bit at the  noon camp, mid they did as good woik  as the best. I have started on a six  and eight days' trip with a load lashed  under the wrapper of between 100 and  500 lbs., then on the top of this I had  my own and the dogs' provisions and  my share of camping utensils, either  an axe, frying pan or kettle, as also  bedding and kit, aud a._ we are off for  along iournev we may venture to  start with say"(100 lbs. on each sled.  AA'e will not allow any valises or  trunks, hut put our change of clothes  and extra moccasins, etc., into seamless sacks.  Over ami above all this our partv  will want some' dressed leather, an  awl and square" needles, iind cither  sinew or strong thread, wherewith to  niciid moccasins, and some rawhide  string with which to mend sleds.  Now then for the road, and to give  the inexperienced an idea, I will *dcB-  cribe two days' journey under different conditions.  The first day we have; /v track and  the footing is"pood for both men ant]  dogs .'tiul we want lo make 00 miles if  possible, and accordingly we* are  stirring at two a.m., and' while the  forest trees fti-e cracking all around us  wilh intense front, our big fire is also  cracking in front, of us and the snow  is melted and keltle boiled, m-enk-  fa������t swallowed, dogs caught and  harnessed and bedding and camp outfit and snow-hoes are securelyi made  are away  fast on to our loads and we  by three a.m.  A quick walk up a hill, then oil' on a  steady not for both -men and dogs  for miles. A siele hill and we  run to the lower -side and  keep our sled fiom upsetting, or  i f it does upset wc lift and strain and  having turned it on to iti bottom once  more start the dogs anel watch iL  across the uneven spot (and there are  many such in tbe course uf a day's run  in tliis western land) then un we run:  if we are ahead we must clear the  track; there is no riding, if we are behind we must keep u)i anel theie  is no riding for us.' Xhen the monotonous trot is broken by ii hill to descend, and we fling ourselves astride  of the load and using both feet .-is  breaks ������e: urge on the dogs to full  speed and hold and guide the* sled  on down the narrow track. Sometimes  notwithstanding all out-skill.-ind effort  the sled runs to the wrong side of a  tree or stum]) and some of the harness is broken and the dogs thrown  inlo more than one kind of a snarl but  if the others are ahead Ihero i.s not  even time to swear ami wo work b.ick  into the load as quick ti.s we cm and  on'down to the level. Now pushing,  now holding and pulling, now steadying the load, on we go and about CiiO  a.m. stop beside some clry tiinlipr aud  while i he axss are being worked vigorously by two ot the party, tht*. other  two kick away lhe snow and breaking  clown willows or brush hastily floor  the rough c.-iinp and stnrl. a fire which  soon (for the axemen arc now bringing  in thu wood) is ablaze and the kettle  and fryingp.iu are to the ..front, iind  our 2ud breakfast is ready. AVlien  this is eaten and axes and kettles anel  grub tied on again it is now eight a.m.  and colder than ever. The cleigs have  lain in their harness just as they dropped when you said "whoa", and tire  now chilled and shivering, but at the  word "Marse" we are away once mote  and the experiences of tlie morning  are repeated except that now we have  daylight coming apace.  Sometimes dogs must be punished  and the muscle of your arm iis well as  that of leg is brought into play. But  all this time your lungs are hard at  work, for you are moving quick, it is  either a very fast walk or a constant  run and by noon the second 20 miles  or more are covered, and now when you  stop vou unharness your dogs and  give them a chance to" move around  while you make a dinner camp' and  prepare and eafc your meal. If all do  iis I have done and. would again, we  givp onr dogs a small bite of toocl, say  an ounce apiece just as Josiah Allen's  wife saj's to "chirk" Iheni up. The  only.time you sit is while you eat and  chink, then harness up once more and  tie kit, eLc, and we are oil' again for  the last 20 miles, more or less, before  night, and in these northern latitudes  night comes quick. But at last we are  at our objective point for the day anel  having picked the spot foi a camp we  unharness the dogs and every man  goes to work as if he had not clone  anything before that day and making  camp, cutting and packing in wood  are rushed for the next hotit. To ciutv  great lengths of logs on vour shoulder  through snow from a foot to three  feet deep or to attempt to do the same  on snow shoos when the snow is crusted or drifted are very difficult vet  necessary items ou sucli a, trip. But  by and." bye the co,lJ,., cheerless, wilel-  erness spot is radiant with tbe glai-e of  the large camp fire and is ringing with  the laughter, joke and fun of a small  party of thoroughly optimistic and  sanguine men, for none other should  be in such conditions and indeed seldom are thev. ._  The second day is in stormy weather  and there is no sign   of   a   road,   the  clouds are thick the snow is deep   anel  growing momentarily   more   so.   it is  very dark and when you have shaken  yourself from the snow and wriggled  inlo yotu coat which is'still damp fiom  yesterday's run   and   tho consequent  perspiration and frost and when you  have made up a fire how narrow  the  range of its glimmer.   Not even a dog  to he seen; a huge blotter has been let  down and the   cheer of last evening  with camp anel men and dogs all seem  ���������to bo-wiped-out,-but-t he-hardy pioneer  full of his healthy optimism shouts in  cheerful tones "Hurrah hoys, its  time  to   start,'-' and breakfast  is over and  dogs are resurrected from their while  sepulchres and harnessed anel all" the  kit tied on except the snow shoes, and  now it is three a.m, and wc are ready  and the best guide putting on his snow  shoes steps   out   ahead   and another  doing likewise alternal ing his step to  that, of the guide,  thus both   packing  nil thp  snow   to   the   depth   of tlicit  weight and step and   the   other   two  teams    and    two loads to look after  and also with   snow  shoes   on follow.  There is no merry sound of hells this  time, the step and   fast fulling snow  forbid that.and in silence anel In snow  and In profound darkness   the   travellers wend their way���������in   the course of.  three hours or so they have made from  10   to   12  miles,   the   vyork   has been  heavy on b'oth dogs and men hut there  is no laying olT ior  a   day,   time and  grub forbid that and   the   evening  is  with them and they have  done well if  30 miles are now   between   them  iinel  last night's camp, and now our   party  must if the storm is eontinuirg, in addition  to last night's   work   make a  "lean to''with poles and either   using  part of the bedding or unloading two  of the sleds for   the  canvas  wrappers  thus making a shelter from  thn blast  and still if Mmse men nre true pioneers  and real dog drivers their  spirits   are  strong, some higher in this camp than  in the former, there is no dampening  of the feelings of  such   men.     But I  uannot describe the hardship ami difficulty, these must he felt to he known  and vet for two   hundred   years men  for the sake of pelf and pelts and men  and grace  have   willingly undergone  all this; and now if  tbe right   kind of  men want I������������������>��������� go to   the   Clondike hy  dog train they can do it,  Appropo* of this latter, in (he voar  1S7S I went from Morluy to within a  short distance of Peace river with  horses. My route was by Edmonton  and the site of old Fort Assinaboine  along the west coast of Lessei Slave  iake and then clown Slave river to the  Athabasca, then down this stream to  the present Athabasca landing and  thencp vvi'h horses to Edmonton and  on to Morlev, having in thn meantime:  made a mcic trip from Edmontein to  White Fish Luke and hack to Edmonton, the whole jouvney occupying les1*  than t������o.months time. So fai- as 1  vvenr, there is no herious difficulty in  building either a pack trail or waggon  road or railroad. 'I  The country is rich in soil and grass  and timber and coal, is well watered  throughout. All these conditions I saw  for myself, doubtless there are many  other resources I did not set! in-my  hurried trip and if the gold m the  Peace River country and Clondike results in drawing the practical attention of our Government and people,  and the world to this I might t.-iy  almost ready to hand home for the  thrifty millions, I shall be thankful.  Yours truly,  John McDougall.  Morley, Octoder 1st, 1S07.  OLD SAM LIVINGSTON  THE  PASSING    AWAY    OF  HISTORICAL FIGURE  AN  Death Occurred Suddenly on Monday  ���������So.*::e Facts About !.His Remark,  able Career���������Known From Mexico  to Peace River.  (From the Ciliary Herald)  Sam Livingston drove into town  about 0:30 on Monday not feeling  well, lie visited AVendell Maclean's  .���������mil D. XV. Marsh's stores, where he  ciatle some purchases and afterwards  went to thei'Windsor ILotel. While in  the stores he complained about a pain  in his chesl. At lhe hotel Mr. Doiitj-  hoe asked him if he would drink something, but he declined it, anel going  into the inside room sat down cm a  mattress which Mr. Donohoe gave  him. He s.iid he was sick and wanted  a doctor. Dr. Rouleau was telephoned  for. AA'hen be went into the room  Sam was kneeling on the wattless.  He had com plained frcepiunlly about,  his health during the his. six months  ind hi--i Irieuds were in the  habit of joking with him  over it. So tlie doctor remaikecl,  Hello, S.iin, you are on your knees at  last?" "Yes," said Sam,-- "and only  just in time." Shoetly afterwards lie  dropped suddenly aud died in a few  moments. His death occurred within  two feet of the spot where two years  ago he said he should like to die, surrounded by friends whom he named.  He was about 07 years old and loaves  ;* wile aud an unusually large family,  some 15 or 10 children, some of whom  are married.  People throughout the "Great AA'est"  will regret to learn that Sam Livingston, a linl" between the old time  frontier life and the pres"nt.has joined  the groat majority���������lie'was a, picturesque character anda typical specimen  of the old time AVeslcrner. He was  familiar with the AATest from Mexico  in the south to the Mackenzie river in  tho north, and has conducted many  parlies through the country in the  capacity of hunter, ptospector and  guide, lie was about the first white  inan to settle in this part ot Alberta,  md that too at a time when the  Indians were still hostile to tho whites,  anel whil't ploughing ho was obliged  to carry a rifle on tlio plough. He  was never quite forgiven tiy the Sar-  cees, who gave him a name wliich  means "Big AVhite Devil." They,  threatened to shoot him "if ho came  outside the fence, liis first shack was  located on the Elbow river, not far  from his late residence., just Jiclow  where R. S. Robinson now lives. At  lhat time the bulTtilo were as yet to all  appearances far from extinction, and  it was no uncommon experience of his  to find them rubbing themselves  against the walls of his shack. AA'hen  the surveyors started to lay out the  country, some elfort was make to dispossess him in pait of the land on  which he had squatted. Sam however  stood the surveyors off -with his rifle;  old timers discussing this, may yet be  heard to say: "he did epute right."  Mai tors however weresettled by giving  him two sections of laivl. Alberta can  ill afford to lose one of her old pioneers,  one of the few remaining picturesque  characters linking her with the '"past,���������  and his sudden demise will be regretted not only by personal friends and  acquaintances, but by those who know  him by reputation. It may be remembered that last year Sam was nominated as a delegate to tbe Conservative  convention; he.was always ;t staunch  supporter and admirer of the late Sir  John A. Macdonald.  AN  UNFORTUNATE  MENT  EXPERI  John Jones was telling his wife���������  they had not been married very long,  Iiy the way���������about a man, who came  home one night so drunk' that he hael  to lie down eni the Moor while his wife  pulled his shoes oil' for him. He also  mentioned the lad thai, this man's  wife did not seem totakelierli'isbiind's  condition to heart badly, but very  made rather a joke of it and twitted  him in the morning quite goo.1 natur-  edly.     * j:  "Such a spirit," remarked Jones,  "strikes me as bring very creditable  to a woman. It isn't every man's wife  who regards an occasional lapse so  leniently. Now, as you know. I am  not a drinking man, but if I should  get drunk one of these, nights���������I say if  I should���������how would you take ii:j"  and he watched her face carefully r.s  he asked (he question.  Mrs. Jones laughed heaitily. The  idea seemed to amuse her very much.  But she straightened out her features  and assumed a shocked expression.  "I should be disgusted, John," she  saiel, "perfectly disgusted. Why I  shudder at the mere ido't. of your being  intoxicated. You would lose my respect, John, right away, and whatever you do you must never forfeit  that!" No, John, dear, I could never  stand your being drunk!."  John listened with great attention  to this reply, anel he came to the conclusion that she didn't mean a word of  it. fie had detected in the (one of  her voice what he stamped in his mincl  as a false not���������*. Joii'*.s was something  of a reader of character and inhis own  quiet, way he had been studying the  various phases of his wife's disposition  ever since they had been iparried, oye_c  two years ago. ,  l{o therefore detei mined to see precisely how she would conduct herself  if he did come home drunk ono night,  or rather if she thought him drunk,  for he decided to simulate the contl-  tion in order to make hisobservations.  "Dear me," tmirinuni.1 Mrs. Jones,  one night ew pnvly morning, about a  week alter tbcii conversation already  notc!d. "I wonder where J'lhn can be!  lie's novcr h "on bO 1" te before outplaying poker.    1 feel quite anxious."  The hour was two a. in., and Mrs.  Jones was seated  m a  chair with a  book in her hand, whicli she was not  reading.  Suddenly she heard the rattle of a  key in the lock of the outer door of  the flat, and in a few minutes her ears  noted the sound of something stumbling along the hall. She grew pale tind  stood up. The park r door was opened with considerable violent'.!, and she  saw-well she could scarcely believe her  eyes at fiist. AA'as this her husband?  The spectacle in the doorway was that  of a man with a battered hat, torn  co.-ir, and trousers splashed with much  His clothes simply iceked with whiskey, lie gazed at her with blinking  eyes anil his mouth I rem bled and leered at her. His eye glasses were fastened onto his right ear.  "'Lo!'  "Oh, John!" was all she could saw  "'Lo, M'riii!" he repeated, '"'lo!  AVasli inn':- W'y"n' jer come "n* gimme  kiss, hey?" Then he chuckled. "Hey?"  he said again, in a loud and fierce tone  of voice. ;  "Oh, John," she   said,   approaching  (him witli reluctance, "como   into   the  room for goodness' sake, and close the  ilr.or.   The people iu   the   flat  above  will hear you!"  "D'n c.tre'f they do!" he ic-.lied,  still hanging onto the knob and swaying about unsteadily. "AVho cares?  Ua, ha, ha!   AVho cares? Dev'l bit!  She closed the* door anel he instantly  -.lipped to the Hour with a thump. She  -.urveyeil him as he lav there with an  -ixprc-esion on her face that had never-  been there before. And then she  .vondeted what was to be done. As  ahe wondered he made two or three  spasmodic movements as though trying to rise, but he fell back each time.  Finally he kissed hid hand to her in a  maudlin fashion, hitting himself in the  eye.  "Pull off boots ! " he commanded.  She turned away with a glance of  aversion.  "Pull oft boots!" he repeated, banging his heels on the carpet. She hesitated for an instant, but obeyed him.  "How ever did you get your clothes  till over mud that way?"  As a matter of fact, it really was an  old suit, and he had insisted earlier in  the evening on wearing it to the poker  game, somewhat to her surprise. She  remenibpred it as he spoke.  "Come, John," she then said. "Try  and get np. .See if you can take hold  of my arm. I'll take, care of you, dear.  Come. There's a gooel boy." Her tone  was quite affectionate.  It seemed to have some effect on  him, for he rose without as much difficulty as might have been expected,  though he leaned on her heavily. She  led him out to the bath room. "Get  m the bath, now, dear," she said verv  sweetly."    -  "Ge'ii wot?" he exclaimed. ���������   -  "The bath tub," she repeated.  -   "But er gomine clozeon," he objected  looKing round at her.   '  "Oh, no, you haven't, .lolin," she  told him. "You think you have, but  you haven't. Now get in, like a good  boy."  Her argument seamed unanswerable  to him, so he -laughed foolishly and  slowly climbed into the tub, though  in a hesitating kind of way, too. He  was no sooner in than she "grabbed his  head, pushed it under the tap, and  turned on the cold water at full torce.  Tt took him so much by. surprise that  he was at first motionless, but' he soon  commenced tostruggle violently. In  vain. She held his head with both of  her hands, saying:  "It's an old suit of clothes, you  know, John. You would wear them,  iind it won't do them a bit ot harm���������  nor you. either, dear."  At this ho gave a superhuman e0ort  and stood straight up in the bath.  "Here! here!" he yelled, "what the  elevil does tins mean?*' His enunciation  was very clear indeed.  Mrs. Maria Jones laughed very  heartily indeed.  ���������'I was sobering you up, dear," she  replied.  "But I'm not drunk !*'  "Really not drunk? Yoii don't say-  so!"   *'      .  "Certainly not!    I was only pretending���������just to fool you."  __ "Yes, dear, I.know." was the replv  ofMarili.  "Then what in the muue'of asterisks  did you do that for?"' he demanded a--,  he'shook the water out of his ears.  "To teach you not to try and deceive your wife!"  And when she left him alone with  two or three huckaback towels he  came to the conclusion that he would  quit studying ihe various phases of his  wife's character.

mineral claims and one case of a man
having staked no less than sixty claims
in this district is mentioned. 'l~rninis-
e-nous> slaking is a very common practice: in all newly established mining
districts, and a certain (.iilhs of pros-
pe'ctois devote it season's- work exclusively to ���'Infilling*'Inigo tracts eif land,
not with the expectation of discovering mineral thereon and developing
the lind, but on the oli-i-haiice tit selling out to advantage in boom times.
