OUT OF JOINT  It is a singular fact ineveryday  lit'e that the average man believed  himself capable of rumiit-g some  othei- man's business better than  the in an who i- running .it  Nobody is just in the pasituni  that he faucie. himself endowed  bv nature to iill. The right'' "in  is never in the right, place. "V erily  it is a queer world. .  The man has yet. to be discovered  who is uoc fully qualified to rim a  newspaper bettor than the editor,  and natural born hotel keepers are  to be found iu overy town by  hundreds. Bauk manager. know  nothing about banking. The men  who know exactly how a bank  --hoitkl be run. never have so much  a-* a post office savings account.  You can meet them in any bar.  If they had their way bank  failures would be unknown aud  five dollar bills "would bo more  plentiful than mosquitoes. In  fact they'would thing;* fairly hum,  and such trifles as ratios, sinking  funds and reserves would cut no  ice at all. Bnt short sighted  bunk directors continue to overlook th.se heaven born financiers  i"u! consequently we nmsfc'groan  iu slavery and envy tbe other  fellow's fat" bank account.  Theu take politics or law: how  ot'reu the wrong man gets a seat  in parliiuuent. Any half dozen  men who have had three Scotch  whiskies apiece can tell .just how-  to run that particular department,  or amend a bill, or give judgment  ou a difiicult case that '.he judges  have not sense enough to sea  through. There is the other  fellow drawing the salary and  here are six men that know moce  than he does aud telling people all  about it. without anv salary at  all! No' wonder Harulet pronounced the times out ot' joint a  -ithou*-Tiud-~-yeiirs-ago.-=--Tln.*y--tire-  stillout.  But ic is v.-nee we come to railways and war than the exa������pef-.  atiug injustice- of the whole thing  is laid bare. There is not a brake-  man, or a conductor, or a telegraph  operator, to ..ay nothing of the  section hands, who could uot run  thu old road ten times better than  the superintendent or . the  manager, or even the president.  Ac the same time, however, they  do not know as much about  running the road as the countrj"  merchMUCv, the Patrons of  Industry, or ihe cl rummer who  travels on a reduced ticket. There  wa. never a man in the.e walks of  ]iie who did not un.lpi-stund railway management from Dan to  lieer. hebii. It is safe to say that  in the smoke of a Pullman almost  any day in the week enough railway wisdom can be found running  to waste to manatro the whole  G. V. It. with the Grand Trunk  thrown in. But numerous as they  are, the men who can run lail-  ways, are not a patch on those  who eoulel conduct a war.  The home of great military  genii.st.-_' is the United States.  They are not hampered bv  modesty. We were informed on  the train the other day, by a  blustering Yankee from Seattle  that "'every person in the United  States of America i.s a general." It  seems positively cruel that only  ona or two ot them can be  appointed to positions of supreme  command. It makes a man fairly  wild to think that there are  thousands of men driving beer  wazgons, pushing whiskers, and  writing on yellow journals, who  could run armies and navies, and  yet tliey are given the cold  shoulder.  In fact all over this disjointed  world square men are in round  holes'. The real bank managers  are sawing wood; men oE 1 he  greatest legal ability are digging  post holes or punching ' steers ;  expert railway superintendents  are measuring calico, weighing  -wear, or wasting their time on  telegraphic tickers: great editorial  writer, are driving mules, or  leaning against a bar. and the men  who ought to be in jail are holding  some of the fattest jobs in the  country. What a queer world  it'  is.  HOW TO ENCOURAGE  IMMIGRATION.  Lord Strathcona the High Commissioner of Canada says in a letter to the Minister of the Interior,  The Hon. Clifford Sifton:���������  "If settlers from the old country  would only take the trouble to  write occasionally to the papers iu  the district from which they came,  and give their names and adduss.  1 am sure that, the recital of their  experience, and favorable impressions, woultl do mucli to  help ns in our ftuod work. At" a  rule it is only tho discontented  people who write, but such letters  have been low and far between  during the last year. At the same  timo what wo want aro favorable  letters fro ui others, aud it cannot  be too often repeated that tbe  best Immigration agent is tho contented and successful settler."  Tliis wu immagiue would not be  a very   irksome  task   and would  require very little ability tind the  ex Dense   would be   trilling.     Our  own   immediate   neighborhood  is  largly settled from  Great.IJritniu,  and if only a few of Jthe  settlers  who came amongst us and made  money, or improved their condition in   lite,   would   summons up  the necessary courage and  euei gy  to indite a letter to the editor of  the    local   newspaper   published  near the  place   they  have.come  from, they would noc only please  that editor, (which they need not  much mind about) but they would  bo sure of a, very appreciated reading   by   their  old neighbors   and  friends.    News of n, personal ;char-  actur from one   who   has   been a  resident in tho old country,  aud  whohn- had the courage to pull up  tlie stakes aud strike out 11 path  for himself in the new world, has  always a great factuation to stay  at home readers.   Thero is hardily  a family in the old  land   who has  not some relative or friend nn this  sido ot the Atlantic,   and reliable  information     repecting   the    nature of the ..climate,   resources of  tho country, modo of life, and general orospects of gaining an independency,     aro    eagerly    sought  after.   In was by such means in a  trreat    measure   that   the Uniled  States was so rapidly brought; into  notice.   There  is  no   doubt that  the most acceptnble hum it" rants to  Canada are the farming class, men  who can bring families with them  and a little   cash,   and   there   are  thousands   in   the   old    couutry,  whose faces are ground down with  heavy taxation  and high rental,  who if they had only tho guiding  hand held to them would gladly  exchange their present depredent  scute, for the  freedom from anxiety the   great North West offers  them, in the means of e~asy purchase of farming lands.  At the same time it will bo woll  the borders oi the Dominion and  they will be gratifying to our  government and people."  Doubtless the e.ditor of the  Omaha Bee is iu the main correct  in his surmises. Most intelligent  Canadians sincerely hope for the  success uf the "United States iu the  struggle with Spain aud will  rejoice to .see tho end of the conflict; and America, victoriously  accomplish tho work sho has  undertaken.  The excitement at Halifax  announced iu our telegraphic  despatches of tho other day, and  of which no continuation or contradiction was received, now turns  cue to have been a test from the  war department iu London, who  issued tho orders with a view to  ascertain in how quick a time the  forts could be manned in case of  einorganey. ' Whother tho military ollicers in charge .were cognizant of tho nature of tho e;all  docs uot transpire, as they decline  to discuss tho subject. All the  hustle and excitement will have  been, amply compensated for by  the instantaneous anti orderly  response to orders received from  headquarters,  thus   proving   the  largo gold Waltham, with a heavy  plated chain attached: the other with  a heavy gold ring of rather unique  design enclosed, addressed to J. K.  Lursen, of Slocan City. The addresses  on both envelopes were written in  large, firm, legible characters', betraying no tremor of emotion although  evidently performed immediately previously to tho overt act of  self destruction. No other letters  were found about the apartment, but  the. coat contained a pocket hook,  empty so far as legal tender was concerned, but holding 11 few- love letters,  n. photo ot a woman with :m unprepossessing face bearing the unmistakable ..lump of the wanton, and some  I".

Wise, one of the leading millers  of Australia, who is visiting Canada,  stopped oil' at I'.inlll Springs  recently  and   there   met  Mayor   Andrews   of  Winnipeg,   who   bus   heen    spending  sonic weeks at lhe Sanitarium' Speaking oE Manitoba,   Mr. Wise   said the  name of the province was epiite familiar to  the Australian   people,  being  associated with the liour which  ciune  to Iheni from Canada, and wliich was  very widely used  in  Australia.    That  niiii'mfiictutetl by  the Ogilvie Milling  Company, he said, was establishing a  reputation for No. 1 hard, as a grade  of wheal   which  could not,  be found  elsewhere  on  the  face of  the   earth,  and it was giving' Manitoba a prominence as a  wheat growing province,  which other wheat producing   countries might woll envy.    The standard  of excellence  in Ocilvie flour was so  perfectly maintained, Mr. Wise said,  that it now  becomes 11 synonym  for  "best   flour"   in    Australia,    and   he  thought ib was to  be regretted   that  some of the flour . untoul ftom Canada  lind heen of an inferior grade, and this  lu* bclievpcl. had resulted in  direct injury to Manitoba.    He strongly urged  'that in  the  interests of the province  none hut the  best cpiality should   he  exported In this  country.    The temptation lo cut quality to meet competition was a ruinoiis'policy for Manitoba  and ho thomthl the province should he  congratulated on having such a broad-  minded concern as the Ogilvie Milling  concern within its  horders, who were  prepared i.n uphold the .standard of excellence nf its chief product among the  countries of tl'.e world, and  who apparently would  not sacrifice   quality  in the manufacture of their flour under  anv circumstance..    Such n nolicv Mr.  Wise asserted could not fail  to he  of  immense   value   to   the*,   province   of  ?.I(initO-ii  and    of    benefit   to   every  farmer, and to every individual within  ils borders-.  ATTITUDE   OF   CANADIANS  AVe are indebted to the Omaha  "BeeTXJnb'oxtheiuo-iL-reliable-n&ws-  papers publisheil in the States, ior  the . following expression of  opinion of the attitude of  Canadians towards the United  States in tho_ matter of the  'American-Spanish war:  "There has been some doubt as  to whether the .sentiment of  Camilla was more favorable to the  United States or to Spain, but this  will be expelled by the expressions  of the leaders of the Liberal and  CfiiiM.rv.'Uivi. parties, which distinctly show thiir thoirsympathies  are with this country: -There ih a  great ileal of significance in thee  utterances, which we venture to  think will be cotdially appreciated  by the American people 110 this-  time. The requirement. of  neutrality would not permit an  unqualified avowal of .sympathy,  lj:ic theie can be no mistaking the  meaning of whnt Premier Laurier  and Sit- Charles Tupper said.  "That there are Canadians who  would not regret the infliction .of  serious claning-.** on (he United  States in the war with Spain j.s a  doubtless fact. Perhaps titer, are?  some who hope for our defeat,  though it is hardly conceivable  that there are any who expect it.  There are people in Canada who  dislike this country as heartily as  some Europeans do and for pretty  much the .ante reason-". They-eie*  nor. like our tariff and our  industrial and commercial competition bother them. But wc  must now believe; that so far as  the conflict with Spain is concerned only a very small minority  of the people of Canada are not  in symtiiithy with us and that the  great majority earnestly desire  tho complete and speedv triumph  of the United States. This is as it  should be. The issues between the  two countries awaiting settlement  should not be permitted to  influence sentiment anrl feeling  prompted by race affinity,  neighborly relations nnd common  interests. There differences will  in flue time be: adjusted, thorn can  be no doubt'imic-ably and honorably, but at all events thoy  fnrni*-h no justification i'or  Canadian .sympathy with .Spain.

Air. Chamberlain's sensational  speech is uneieniahly responsible for tt  decided feeling of nervousness in Paris.  The French press begins fo see. it has  adopted a mistaken policy in declaring  so pronouncedly for Spain as opposed  10 the United States, and admits that  the English have profited by France's  action in this matter.

He knew nothing   oi   Cer-  vera's fleet.  Commodore Schley's fleet is blockading Santiago and Cienhigos.  It is reported that three Spanish  ships have successfully run lho Havana  blockade.

A FRENCH STOKY  Madkid, Mav 30.���������"RI Progrosso pub-  v lishes despatches pm porting to come  i, from Paris.giving the details of an alleged battle near Jiini'iica. in whicli it  is said   two  United  States warships  \ were destroyed and one Spanish   ship  iniured.     Although    the   account   is  verv eii cuinslantial as to time,  place,  i incidents and results, it is rcciveil here  if with suspicion.       The   story   is that  ' Schley's squadron parted from   Samp-  \ son's off Cape Maysi, the eastern point  ;!'of   Cuba and     steered     towards the  h Yucatan passage, followed closely_   by  ' Sampson's ships.    Both wen*   sighted  from the watch towers of Santiago de  Cuba.   Sampson arrived olf   the province of Puerto Principe,   continuing  thence in  the   direction of  Jamaica.  Cervera left  Santiago  on   Thursday,  i   Mav 28, at midnight, all   lights  bemg  -extinguished, with   the  Vizcaya  and  Almciante{Quendo,   preceded   by the  torpedo   bo.it  destroyer, Furor..   He  took up a position in close proximity  to Jamaica.  Two hours later the remainder of  Cervera's squadron withdrew from the  harbor of Santiago and proceeded in a  southerly direction.  On the morning of Friday the Furor  came up rapidly to the Vizaya. Al-  -"^-iniranEC Oquendo advismg_Cer___era_pf  the approach of the enemy Sampson s  Heet steamed at full speed toward the  SDaui6h vessels, which accepted the  combat, but moved in a southerly direction to effect a juncture with the  remainder of the Spanish squadron.  Presently the battle raced furiously on  _ ' hoth sides. The United States squad*  * ron detached three cruisers and three  smaller ships and surrounded the Vis.  caya and Almirante Oquendo. The  Furor, between the cross hre of the  .net. v. n-'ide for the United States  flagship.0 Notwithstanding the fire of  the heavv guns the outcome of tho  contest, was that two United Mate"  warships were sunk and one Spanibh  warship was disabled in it<~ steering  near, the remaining vessels ot the  United States squadron being so much  damaged that they were compelled to  take refuge in llaytian waters. It is  ^ported that the Cristobel Colon captured ono United States ship, which  . lind been disabled by a shell, trom the  !���������* Vi_cay������ perforating her side" The  "Vizcavn. escaped destruction from the  United States destroyer. It is believed  that after the comhat the Spaniards  spiled for Havana, or, if the conditions  of the vessels or the presence of a. superior force of the enemy required,  took refuge in Cardenas or Man tanzas.  This report ii discredited in London  and the Washington officials deny it.  m  m  Washington, May 31.���������The military  invasion of Cuba has at length began,  unless tho order, of the War department have been miscarried. At an  eaily hour this morning the troops  that, have been massed at the Gulf  forts, began lo break camp and march  on board the trati_pi.it .hips which  were waiting to carry them to the enemy's tenitories. The transport ileet  consists of 25 of the largest and swiftest vessels* which could he procured and  they aie lilted to accomodate, admit  30.000 men.

O_.TA~.vA, May 30.���������The Postmaster  Gpneral has introduced into his Post  Office bill, novv before the Commons,  three amendments, and a couple of  these "may be regarded as of consider.-  able importance to the general public.  By their provisions postmasters may  deal summarily with letters imperfectly addressed when the name of the  sender is on the envelope. The sender  -will be communicated with to secure  ���������the proper addresses and the letter  -will then be sent on to its destination  -without going through the dead letter  ���������office.  Another amendment will give the  postmaster a certain discretion in the  ;������������������ matter of sending on letters where no  postage lias been placed on the cnvel-  ���������npe. The postmasters may call upon  th"-sender where Ws inline is on lhe  envelope to pay the proper postage and  the missive will go on to its destination.  .������������������ __������ ��������� .  An Ontario pn per says of Mr. Dalton  McCarthy that he never spoke in parliament, except when he had snme-  'I 1 hing to say. Perhaps this just tribute  is as good an evidence of his superior-  i������ty. as any that has heen olfered.  1 Any person who takes a paper  regularly from tho post olllco, whether  in his name or another's or whether  he has subscribed or not, is responsible  for payment.  2 If any person orders his paper discontinued ho must pay up all arrears,  or the publisher may continue to send  it until payment' is made and then  collect thewhole amount whether the  paper is taken from the "office or not,  3 In suits for subscriptions, the suit  may be instituted in the place whete  the paper is published, although tbe  subscriber may reside hundreds of  miles ,avvay.  4 The courts have decided thatrefusing newspapers or periodicals from the  postoflice or removing ajid leaving  them uncalled for while unpaid, is  prima facie evidence of intentional  fraud.  The man,who goes fishing and sits  in a cramped uninviting position all  day. and calls it fun, is tne chap who  never goes to church because the pews  are uncomfortable.  Who will take the late Dalton McCarthy's place in the famous law firm  of McCarthy, Osier, Hoskin and Creel-  man, of Toronto, is the question now  tilling tho minds ol* legalitcs. Political  circles are also much exercised .is to  who will HU the vacancy in North  Simcoe.  :The'seal worn by the Pope and used  by him on official documents to which  tho'signature'is attached, has on it the  engraving ot a fish, with the cipher of  the wearer. Since the 13th 'century  every Pope has worn a ring of this  character, and it is shattered with (it  md the Americans aro buying up all  lliu potatoes thoy can got.  The whole .world is beginning to appreciate, the consummate wisdom of  .lolin Bull in establishing coaling stations in a number of places. John  may be slow according to Continental  ideas; but he has known a few things  all along.  'J^The London daily papers give prominence to.dispatches from the United  Stales telling of the celebrations there  in honor of the Queen's birthday. The  Daily News says: "Certainly it seems  that an opportunity should be given  to reciprocate these demonstrations  of good will. This will naturally occur  on the 4th of July.  An exchange tells a funny story of  a tramp who rang a doctor's door bell  and asked t.he pretty woman who  opened the door if she would kindly  ask the doctor if he had a pair of old  pants he would kindly give away.  "I'm lhe doctor," said the smiling  young woman and the tramp fainted.  Georgia comes to the front, with a  woman who has 135 living children,  grandchildren and great great-grandchildren. Her name is Sallie Shiver.  Notwithstanding the fact that she is  in her ninetieth year, bhe enjoys good  health and spirits and visits each of  her descendants every two years.  Admiral Sampson is areligious man.  He is a member of the Presbyterian  church of the Covenant at Washington, and the men's society, which is a  literary club cou nee ted with the church.  He was always regular in his attendance during the several years that he  vvas stationed at Washington, and  took a great deal of interest in philanthropic work. -~  As an amusing sample of Chinese  composition the following copy of a  laundry bill sent by a local Celestial to  one of his customeis has been handed  to us: "The first time I make out a  bill oil SO 05 and you give me $5.00 and  there is $1.05 to lel'e, and these times  make out a bill for $S.10 and makes  oil together owe uie $0.75.

Only one civilian has ever won the  Victoria Cross, and be won-it in battle,- This was the Key, J. W. Adams  a chaplain who went with General  Roberts forces into Afghanistan. On  the way he distinguished himself in  distributing ammunition aud carrying  water to the wounded in one of the battles, and when the campaign was over  the Victoria .Cross was given to him  as well as to others. Only sixteen  crosses were given for that campaign.  A;joint meeting of the city lodges  of Free Masons vvas held last Thursday at the Masonic Temple, AVinnipeg, when, in addition to the grand  master, Thomas Robinson, and the  grand officers, there wero present a  large number of the local fraternity.  Rev. Canon Matheson delivered an  erudite and interesting lecture upon  '"���������The Bihle," dealing witU���������ilr"a,s~=~thV  Word of God, and the basis of Masonic  faith. Its history and literature were  ably and learnedly explained, and it  was shown how largely the Bible had  entered into the best of English literature.  Owing to tho serious international  complications growing out of the: war  between the United States and Spain,  the British government is arranging  to fortify St. John's. The British war  office has cabled the governor, Sir  Herbert Murray, as to the condition of  the foits and "barracks belonging to  the imperial government,-which were  given into the custody of the colonial  authorities when the troop, were  withdrawn from 'there in 1870. Sir  llerbeit Murray and the coloninl  minister are consulting with a view of  housing the imperial troops, the first  contingent of which arrived from  Halifax last week.  Al. Bartlett, formerly, ���������'of' Sandon,  has recently come out from Dawson,  and is on his way to Ottawa. He says  that no gold will be brought out from  Dawson via the Yukon this year.  This, he says, will be owing to the  extreme low water which will prevail.  The water, he says, will reach a lower  point than has existed for the last 11  years/ The principal mine owners  have made themselves cognizant*, of  this, and will, he says, take no chances  on sending out their gold by way of  the Yukon. It will be reserved for an  expedition which will come out about  the middle of next winter over the  ice.  Tbe Regina Leader says: "One of  the warmest friendships formed by Mr.  McCarthy in later years was with the  younc minister who now |represents  the. West in the Dominion Ciibinet,  and we doubt that anv will regret the  demise of an unselfish adviser and  friend more sincerely than the Hon.  Clifford Sifton.' When Jlr, Sifton was  attorney general, .-ind Mr. McCarthy  was advocate for Manitoba before the  Privy Council in the school case, they  were thrown into close and frequent  contact. Between the veteran and  the comparative novice sprang up an  attachment based upon mutual re-  snectand cemented by close confidence.  When Mr. McCarthy single-handed  threw down the irrevocable, gage of  battle in the face of hopeless odds in  tne Haldimaiid bye-election ot 1804,-  Sif ton it was who went from Manitoba to lend the aid' of'his forcible  speaking. To Sifton was Wholly due  Jlr. McCarthy's candidature in   Bran  hammer when the wearer dies, to pre-   fon InlSfXJ.   "And if we mistake not to  vent its use on a forged document. McCarthy was very largely due  Mr.  sion of the O. P.

Just what elfeet the war will havo  have on binder twine prices is not  known yet, but prices are very strong  and sisal is advancing lapidly in consequence of the cutting olf of thu supply cf i aw Manila. Fears' are entertained thai if there should be a heavy  crop in the North West, the supply  will be exhausted.  Speaking of the reports that Russia,  Austria and Franco will interfere to  slop the war. the Pall Mall Gazette  says: "All 4ho talk of assistance lrom  Europe is \noonshine. NoitlierFrinco  nor any other power is likely to burn  its fingers vvith the Spanish chestnuts.  Senor Castillo, the Spanish Ambassador to Franco, lEost probably has a  good deal to do in Paris, but it is of a  financial character."  The present Spanish-American war  sending hack to Canada many car loads  of French Canadians, who have been  residing in tbe United States the past  few years. They say that it is on  account of being afraid of being compelled to enlist in the Uniled States  army that they havo returned, and on  account ot the standstill at which  business has arrived. Many factories  are closed and wages are reduced.  An English telegram slates thai the  American Missionaries Mr. and Mrs.  Burtner, Mr. and Mrs. Minshalt, Mr.  Ward and Miss Mullen, members of  the United States Brotherhood of  Christ, who survived the recent massacres in the Sherboro "district of  Sierra Leone, west coast of Atiica,  arrived at Liverpool, on May 27th,  from Freetown Sierra Leone. They  give thrilling accounts of their escape  at the time the mission house at  Shanghe vvas destroyed in the ridings.  Coal is king when ii comes! to naval  warfare iu these modern days. It is  therefore comforting to know that the  output ot the United Kingdom is 105,-  000.000 tons every year, that of the  United States 171,000,000 and that of  the colonics a good round amount.  Probably the coal output of t.he English sppakinir countries amounts to  ���������100,000,000 tons a vear. France and  Geimany together,' produce a little  more than one quarter of this amount  and the,other nations are not anywhere in the race.      v,   .  Mr. Sifton stated in the '.house the  other day that the Klondike is paying  for itself. About half a million of  money has been received up to dato,  and the royalties are still to come in.  If the Klondike had been made to  build a railway, as was proposed, there  would he nothing left to fret about.  The determination of Mr. Sifton and  his colleagues, that in all respects the  Klondike shall provide for itself, and  in no sense and to no extent should it  be a burden on the rest of the Dominion, is one to he commended from an  eastern hut not from a western standpoint.���������Ex.

No  longer'will the country be burdened  with lhe ruinous expense of costly  revisions of Voters' Lists nor be at the  mercy of ultra-partisan revising barristers, and if the session bore no other  fruit than this one, measure wliich  gives the simplest, safest and most  honest franchise that Canada has ever  had, it will have deserved well of tho  country. It is not expected that the  Senate will throw it out.  The escape from Peterboro jail of  two notorious criminals is announced  James McDonald, a Uaited States  crook, who was waiting trial for burglary at.,Norwood postofflce a few  months ago, and Frank Forbes, another character, well known through,!'  out the country, for larceny.

We remember also arriving  one. day by stage in a village lhat  contained live geneial stores. All the  stores but one wore at once closed, and  in a short space of time thoro was  only one man in town who could talk.  This vvas at Battleford, if anybody  should a-*k you. The rest wore spending their timu mixing ,rum, scotch,  rye, gin and irish, thu proper amalgamation of which is said to make a  very happy blend. - These.citizens are  known as extremely temperate men,  but if prohibition should come in they  vvouid fall into their old ways again  from pure contrariness, get'a 5 gallon  permit when they were ablo and' pro*  cee 1 to drink ic up regardless of., business or anything else.  Calgary was a holv fright for drinking in prohibition days. If prohibition does come in again, we nope the  law will be rigidly enforced.  It cannot be denied that the pr psent  day has its besetting sins. One of the  most marked is the prevalence of  intemperate utterance, and someof the  worst olfenderS are well intentioned  people who regard themselves as  divinely commissioned to turn-the  contemporary woi ld from the evil of  its way. Mounted upon their little  rostrums ot conscious superiority,  the self appointed regulators go  through the performance popularly  known as talking through their hats,  to the edification ot nobody but -themselves. There is high authority for  tho doctrine- that _lhe defiling clement is that which comes forth from  tbe mouth, rather than that which  enters it; and it would seem to us as if  there were room tor two new societies,  one for the suppression of intemperate  talking on social-evil questions, and  another, equally important, for the  suppression of reckless talking by men'  about good women.

WOULD    YOU    INVEST  ONEY   PROFITABLY ?  If So* Come to Revelstoke the MiniDg  Centre of North Kootenay   -   -   -   -  It has been predicted by leading men of Canada that Revelstoke will  be one of the leading cities of West Kootenay. That its unique position  where tiie C, P. 1 ... crosses thu beautiful* Columbia valley, vvith water transportation 'o the north and south and in close proximity to the richest mines  in Kootenay, making its location unusually favorable, If you want to invest  your money in manufactoiies, teal estate, or mining property, visit  Revelstoke,"lhe "Gateway to the Kootenay."  AVe aro moving to the front amino obstacle will or can impede our  wonderful progress. Do not forget that, you will never buy real eslate as  cheap as you can buy it today. Figure the increase of the past and speculate  in Revelstoke, the "Gateway to the Kootenay."  The banks of the Columbia, on which liver the town is situated, have  been the stage upon which strange scenes have beon displayed and wild and  daring exploits'performed by the thousands who entered lhis district during  lho '07 gold boom in the Big Bend.  Revelstoke is probably one of the oldest towns in the interior. And it  was nol until this title question vvas setlled that Revelstoke really began to  forge ahead, commercially and otherwise. Growth was slow until 1897, hut  the old timers and newcomers had great confidence in the town and siarted in  to make it a mining centre worthy of note.  The C. P. R. is concentrating all its principal woikshops on the  western division at'Revelstoke. Revelstoko is not only a mining town, but is  now and will be. increasingly so in the future a railway point of considerable  importance in the C. P. R. system and a distributing centre for the bnsiness of  the rich mining districts included iu the siSction popularly known as North  Kootenay.' Its impot/jance in these connections is due to its unique geographical position. Sealed in a beautiful open valley at the point of intersection  of the Columbia" river and tho C. P. R. main line, it commands the passes  running north and south, to the famous gold fields of the Big Bend and the  rich mineral leads of the Lardeau, while on the east up the Illecillewaet  another district of great prospect is being opened up. The town is the point  of junction of the" main line and the Arrowhead branch of the C. P. It., by  which access is gained to tho South Kootenay hy rail uud steamer. Another  line of steamers will make Revelstoke their "starting point for the Big Bend,  for which country it is at present the sole outfitting point and base of supplies.  Thus by the mere force ot geographical position alone Revelstoke has forged  lo the front until tho littlo mining camp of a few years ago has tiecome a towu  of considerable importance to the business of tho province."  The mining industry is still in ils infancy, hut with the careful expenditure of capital in development work will grow to large dimensions.  Large in. as of land  in close proximity to the town are covered with  limber suitable for lumber, but probably just 'as valuable as fire wood, there  heing no coal deposits discovered near at hand as yet., This land when cleared <���������'  is proving to be exceptionally line farming and gardening land,   and   the  demand for produce is always ."many times larger tliau the supply, train loads _.. *  heing imported from other-points" every season.   This'should be taken into  .  consideration hy intending settlers. _ ".-,.'���������  Across the river from Revelstoke an excellent clay exists for the mak- ~  ing of brick in, vast quantities, which commands a high price at any time. -    .  The town enjoys many advantages: A fine, healthy climate���������the  death rate being exceedingly low���������good water.'supplied by a system of water  works,"from the mountain side just north of the town, underlying which is a  stratum of gravel that ensures a natural drainage. A short distance up the.C.  P, R. track, east, to the lllecillewaet river, is a canyon and falls, which muse  ho seen to be fully appreciated. The power from these falls is now being utilized by ahe Revelstoke Water, Light & Power,Co. for running their line elec--  trie lighting plant.
