Thus  far llio  mining, lumber  ami fishing  industry lias  been  found  mure or less  in  conned ion, l>nl  now  we come to a town where  tliu  mining  industry  is  found nloiif.   Though itself nol rich in inirii~r.il   il  I-.cl-oiiics in-  dii-oclly a. mining centre from, tho fact  thill great (]iiiintilius of ore are shipped  to tho smeller sitiuiled there.

Tho town is  distinctly n valley town.   The O. P.

The town  is well   supplied  with  fresh   water   from   ono   of.. Ihu  mountain  streams.    Ils  location  nud  natural water'system vender it a most  desirable place for residence.    On   the  west side of th.  town  a government  road  leads  up'Lookout  mountain, lo  the Sovereign.mine, about two miles  distnnt.    The hotel .���������lecomodotion here  as   elsewhere   in   thu, district    seems  more than su.Tieient to meet thu needs  of tho fi.ivi.linR public.    The scenery  is mil striking though hills abound on  overy side.    Churches are  thero and  ineefc.t.ho religious needs of Hip inhabitants.

Here  is a surprise.   A town but throe years  old and yet the buildings of-n. modern  city.    The enterprising merchant  litis  not waited for slreets  lobe  mndo or  rocks to  be moved, but,  has  liuiit hit-  store beside I lie rock  and hoped  that  ho   would   lind  he  had  built bn  the.  slreol,   consequently      the    town     is  poorly laid out.   There   seems  to be  little,  order .'and   li(,tle_ access as yet  from ono purl of UTo'town to' another.  Streets are still  bl-Jckcd  at one   end  vi.h iiniiieii.-"i!   rocks a hundred feet  high "and nothing but a narrow path  beside,   them    allows    egress    lo   the  traveller.     Contracts J-u-e  now being  let for tl'.e building of pi opei-. streets.  The buildings on  tho whole   are   far  from substantial anel seem to bu  quite  temporary in  their structure.   Ross-  liind is a "'city set on a hill" with mines  aroiintl on every hand.   The Lu  l.eii,  War Eagl", _ route Crislo and  Cenlre  Slar  arc   in   sight,   while   for   miles  aiound tho country is staked  out  by  the prospector in nil directioiis.  There  seems lo  bu   no end   lo   tlio   mineral  wealth of this thriving town of nearly  1,000 inhabitants and  all  one can  see.  nntl hear is locks, rocks, rocks.   Oolel,  silver and copper nre the chii'f metal*  found  in  thi"- district and  tlio prosperity i)f the town  is well assured if  the mining interests  continue Lo develop.   The  teiiip(.-itiini3   of  cil.y life  are must glaring hero and   lho day of  church influence is   still somewhat in  the   future.     Tliu   I'resbytcri.-ins   are  here erecting a coninin'dious structure.  The   Methodists,    Episcopalians    and  others are also represented.    One e _in-  nol but notice tho restless  expectancy  of life in this new town.    All  are here  with  little thought of   a   permanent  home.    Thoy will  "make   their pile  and leave" say  they,   but many  will  leave without .my pile anel many will  be compelled to stay.    It will be when  those who cannot go to tho  ideal land  of their hopes settle down te> make Lhe  most of life whero they are that Ross-  1:111-1 will lieconie a compact anil soliel  town, where the interests of all will be  centralized and the private  wishes  be  merged into lhe good  of the  whole.  Today it i&'a cily of upheaved,  excitement anil resiles .lies-; soon, we  hope,  it will become a quiet anil substantial  city of the west.  Rev.  .V. .T.

A CALGARY   BOY  Among the    Fighters   at   Santiago-  Letter to His Mother  - From the Calvary Herald.  "Run, honey, run'l Hoah como de  Yankees!"  Such was tho cry which roused Nell  Tarletou from hor bed that summer  evening when General Bntlor, at tho  head of the Federal troops, 6wooped  down upon City Point, Va., and blocked the road to Petersburg.  Nell Tarloton dwelt with her mother  and baby brother in thoir old fashioned  homo on tho JiimcB river. Tho father of  tho family was nway ou tho Potomac,  fighting the battles of lho Confederacy,  aud only a few faithful negroes remained to guard Mrs. Tarletou and hor children.  As Nell sprang from hor bcel sho  heard the rattle of musketry up tha  river. A Ehell tore, screaming, ovor tho  house, followed by nuothor aud another.  Then there burst forth from tlio stables  u lurid glare, nnd sho heard her mother's distracted voico shrieking that the  nogro quarters wore afire.  Nell's fingers trembled violently, but  sho mauagod to don her frock and shoes  before old Aunt Drusilla camo lumbering up tho Etairs and drovo tho child,  shoes in hand, from the room.  "Doan' min' yo' shoes till yo' gits  out o' fiah," exclaimed Aunt Drusilla  resolutely, and so, barefooted and half  clad, Nell hurried through tbo confusion of lho hall and into tho lawnbe-  fore tho house.  There sho found her mothor hysterical and helpless, and thero, too, "was tho  baby, snugly wrapped up unci carried  by his mirso, tho mulatto Phccbe.  Somo valuablos hastily put together lay  in bundles on tho grass���������plainly revealed in the ruddy light from tbe blazing  huts. Nobody seemed to know what to  do till Annt Drusilla swopt upon tlio  sceno. Then movement took tho placo  of inaction.  "Heab, yo' fool niggahs!" cried tho  old colored woman. "What for yo' star-  in en doin luifl'm? Want do I'nnkees to  cotch yo', huh-' Grab dom bundles an  run for  do  woods.    An yo', too. Slits   , an  yo', honey.    Run, I  toll yo'.  Pha-bo, min'   dnt  ar  cliilo, or I warm  yo".  Ever'body's got to run."  And everybody ran���������even fat Aunt  Drusilla herself. Down tho dewy lawn,  with tho Federal bullets whistling  among tho tree tops hard by, una the  flames spreading to tho barns and stubles, thoy fled. For iu the night attack  no ouo.'was safe. Neither north ner  6onth warred uguinst women nnd children, but under cover of darkness the  gravest danger threatened all within  the area of attack.  At last thoy reached tho dense woods.  and tho souncl of firing camo but faintly to their ears, though tbe glow of the  distant firo still showed its grim redec-  mothor'B agonized fnoe over beforo her  nnd tho determination to save littlo Hal  strong within her. A jagged stono cut  her baro foot, but could not stay her  ovon for au instant. Now sho saw tho  roofs of her father's houso illuuiiimtud  by tho spreading iiro, nnd now again  tho shells wont whistling over hor head.  Rabbits and squirrels skurried madly  past her, escaping from thu advancing  troops. She hoard tho sound of iiiniiy  footstops and tho sharp banging of tlio  1'odoral rifles. On tho rising ground bo-  foro tho houso black figures lmrriod to  and fro���������tho van of Butlur'sivrmy. But  sho did not stop. What woro 4bo ouomy  to her when llul was missing���������wounded by a chauco bullet perhaps and dyiilg  in tlio fields'.  With a roar the houso caught fire,  nnd a shower of sparks soared into tho  air and fell among tho trees. A bullet  pinged not a foot away from Noll, bnt  sho heard it uot.  "Hal! Brother Hull" was tho song  her hoarfc saug, and sho heeded uo other sound.  A branch, shorn off from its paront  treo, crashed down upon tho horoio  child aud boro her to earth. Sho crawled from beneath it, her shoulder bruised  and torn and "with sharp pains in her  auklo that told of n serious strain. Sho  could run no longor, but limping was  Dtill possiblo", so onward sho limpod.  At last tho lawn was reacheel, mid  Noll felt a heavy handdosceud upon her  aching shoulder.  "Hold hard there!" criod a voice.  "What in heaveu's name aro you doing  horo?"  Tho child looked up iuto a rough,  bearded faco, bogrimod with powder,  yet not unkindly.  "The baby!" sho whispered hoarsely.  "I'vo como back for Bnby Hal."  Tho bearded man let tho sword which  he curried fall back into its sheath.  "Oh, you'vo como back for tho baby?  Como back through tho shells and bullets, eh? My girl, you're a regular Joan  of Arc."  "No,   sir, I'm  a Confederate. And  please, won't you help mo to iind baby?"  The big soldier caught Nell up iu his  arms. *  " Why, your poor little foot's cut,"  ho cried, "and your shoulder's bleeding  too.    This is awful."  "Don't mind iny shoulder, Mr. Yau-  keo.   Lot mo find baby."  Tho Federal oflicer put his spare baud  to liis mouth by way of a ��������� speaking  trumpet and shouted in stentorian toues,  "lias���������any���������man���������fouud���������a���������baby?"  From tbo right camo an answering  hail, nud a soldier camo ruuning out of  tho darkness.  "Wo fouud a colored girl aud a baby  over tbero, sir," ho said. "Thegirl hud  been knocked down by some buruiug  timber- from tho barn."  Two minutes later Baby Hal was  cooing, just as if nothing had happened,,  upon Nell's lacerated shoulder. Poor  Phmbe, badly though not daugeronsly  hurt, told how in flying blindly from  tbo Federals she had been struck and  di.nbled by a falling beam.  As tho story spread among the Federal soldiers they gathered arouud Nell,  cheering hor so loudly that Auut Drusilla, sitting disconsolately upou her  stump iu the woods, heard tho uproar  nud wondered what it mount.  Not long had the honest old negress  to wonder, for presently there marched  through the woods a guard of honor  surrounding the federal officer who carried both Nell aud tbo baby in his  strong arms.  "Ob, chile, cbilo!" cried Aunt Drusilla as sho gave Nell her very heartiest  hug. "Yo' done give me a pow'ful scare.  But It's all right now, bress  do Lawd,  AN  AUTUMN  MORNING.

True to ber word, the stout hearted  Brasilia turned in tho direction of the  burning outbuildings and shuffled down  tbo pathway as fast ns she could go.

But Nell only shook her head and  ran the faster. Farther and farther bo-  hind dropped poor Drusilla, until at  least sho lost tight of Nell all together.  Then she threw np her hands and sunk  despairingly upon a log.  "Dat ends ifc all," she sobbed. "Boy  an gal bofe gono now. What'll Mnrso  Tehlston say when ho comes back? An  poor miss!

Thoy floated whito and shimmering  on tho smooth surface of tho lake,  whoso wators were unrippled by u singlo breeze.  Even tho solitary dragon fly, which  had flown across a littlo whilo ngo, had  disappeared, aud tho frog would not begin its croaking till oventido. Thus nothing but rest, still and dreamy, lay on  tbo surface of tho tranquil water.  Mauy a secrot lay hidden in tho deepest depths of tbo bountiful lako and all  sorts of fanciful stories wero recounted  of its fathomless mysteries.  Thero grow tho beautiful Water Lily,  with her delicate liueameuts, aud her  fragile, spreading roots seemed to be always searching in vain for a firmer  hold, and whoso winsomo socioty was  engerly sought for by all her neighbors.  Tho tall flags hovered around her and  wore continually whispering and making salutations to her.  Often had 6be petulantly closed hei  beautiful leaves, whoroupon thoy would  promise to leave her in tranquillity, but  when sbo again unfolded her petals or  made even the smallest movement il  was a pretext for renewed whispers.  All theso foolish adorers had nevei  yot asked-of tho Water Lily why, she  passed all hor timo gazing upward toward tho sky, although they might well  havo observed that the Lady Moon  shono thoro in all her splendor. Whon  the foolish ones slopt, tho Moon's rays  grew brighter aud brighter, gliuted full  across tho lake an,d embraced the flower,  which was trausfonued by love iuto a  Will-o'-the-wisp, whioh danced and  flirted constantly with its beloved.  The Tulip was tho first to be aroused  by this Will-o'-the-wisp, for as he had  lived nt court he was used to watching  aud slumbered lightly. Ho drew himself np with great austerity, for ha saw  tbat the Water" Lily was a person of  doubtful reputation, who nllowod herself to be embraced in a most unbecoming manner by the Moon, danoed about  liku a siren, throw aside all modesty  and provoked nntl teased her neighbors,  who nevertheless revered her and looked upou her as quite a saint.  So the Tulip lost no time in relating  his discovery to his nearest neighbors  iu the flower world.  Tho Forgetmenpt opened its blue  eyes so wide, so wide in their innocence, that tbey actually remained larger than when they first'saw the light.  The Lily of tho Valley, who tenderly  loved tho Water Lily, wept bitter tears,'  whereupon tho Tulip grew bright red  with augor aud continued to repeat his  story to tbe surrounding plants, who  drew togethor in groups aud chattered  and recounted it to the South.Wind,  who was just then passing over them.  -Tho-V. ind-repeated-it-to^the-Flags.-to-  tbe Water, to tbe Clouds, who,frowned  iu auger aud immediately covered the  .Mcoa with a veil.  The tall bluo Gentian, perohed like a  cavalier on the Blopo of tho mountain,  hnd heard toll of the beautiful Water  Lily. He imagined that there lay nt tho  bottom of his heart a spirit of fire equal  to tbat of the Will-o'-the-wisp.

The cavalier braudish-  ed his lance in tbo sight of tho Etlcl-  wiiiss, to innko bolievo ho was going  a-iighting, and tho Alpine .Roses admired him as be passed and blushed  and regretted thnt tbe cavalier Gentian  had _et oat in search of adventure iti-  -tead of contenting himself with their  charms.  Eut tho Edelweiss was ct too proud  and ancient a lineage to show tlio leant  regret at his departure* and remained  frigid and cool in her velvet robe near  the terrace cf her castle and barely bowed her head aa the cavalier couched his  lance ou pasElng before ber.  Some time afterward a falcon, wheeling overhead, pftrceivf.d tbat tliis iinlif-  tetrence was but assumed, and spokei to  tho Edelweiss of the water in the valley  celow and of the beautiful "whiten Lily  jWhiob reigned over it. 1.- told hcrhow  the cnvalier Gentian bad fought with  ar.d been vanquished by Prince M.-ir-  ciasns, whose parfumeel darts had citnsi'd  him to fall fciiiissless to the earth.' The  Edelweiss did not allow heir emotion to  appear, bnt she felt a cold shiver run  throughout her frail body and would  ���������willingly have listened to farther details, but the falcon had already flown  awny, and hor dignity did not permit  her to reoall him.  Prince Narcissus thus became a horo,  nud was mightily astonished to fiuel  himself such. Hitherto his chief occupation hud boen to contemplate his own  -GilRction in the waters of tho lako, to  porfnine himself, nnd to languish in tbo  wako of the Water Lily, and so render  himself more interesting in tho sight of  tho neighboring" flowers. He looked  with disdain   on   \k������  evargrsen Iv?,  .-thorn lie regarded as a mere poet and  would not even doign to glance at the  worthless Reed, but stopped up his ours  with a weary, scornful nir whou the  Reod thought good to rustlo.  Prince Narcissus did not cure to harm  the Laburnum. Ho felt pity for it,  though ho could hnvo annihilated it  with one waft of his pungent porfume.  Tho Poppy and the Dandelion wero,  for him, personages of too low born extraction, and for a trifle ho would have  adopted a rude manner toward thorn.  Bnt with Cavalier Gentian it was  quite a difforout affair, llu had come  down from his heights aud dolled all  those who were enamored of tho Water  Lily. Narcissus had accepted his challenge nnd had overwhelmed him with  his pungent odor.  As his reputation for valor wns now  firmly established ho would havo liked  hi his vanity thousands of voices to be  raised in his praiso and grow angry  when tho frogs croaked a requiem in  compliment to tho fallen cavalier.  However, such is the wuy of tho world.  As long as one is alivo it refuses to pay  ono homage One must die before boiug  appreciated and honored.  What would Narcissus have said had  he kuowu that the Edelweiss took tho  voil on account of her deep sorrow on  tho death of tho oavalior Gentian?  " Toward evening, when he had rested  from tho fatigue of tho day, he cried in  a voice so loud as to bo heard all around:  "Como to mo, tbou beauteous hermit, so white and pure. Thou art meet  and fit to bo my own princess."  Hardly hnd ho pronounced these  words when ho was attaoked by pricking pains, which seomed to be burning  him on nil sides, but ho determined to  grasp and conquer his enemy.  Ho succeeded incatchiug hold of tho  Will-o'-the-wisp and grasped it so firmly that it was soon inert and grew colder aud colder and heavier and heavier.  Eventually the burden booanie so' grea.  thac ho let it fall at his feet, and there  lay a monstrous jewel, white as tho  Water Lily, but bearing in its depths a  marvelous blending of all tbe colors in  heaven and on the earth, with a fire as  vivid as that of the Will-o'-the-wisp.  Suddenly the Boeds were pushed  nsido, and a long bearded gnome issued  from the lake and gazed with goggle  eyes at tho newborn Opal.  ��������� Lost in admiration, he hastened to  pick it up. Its effulgence was so brilliant tbat. he thrust it into a lauteru  which he wore slung round his neck  and sot out to rejoin his fellow gnomes.  On reaching them he cried out:  > ^'.'Come  and  see what a magnificent  gem I have "found."  His companions laughed at him,' saying:  "Why, it is but a Will-o'-the-wisp."  "I tei" you it is au Opal. I picked it  up, and its firo scorched my hand."  "Yet 'tis'but a Will-o'-the-wisp!"  The  poor  gnome  was furious with  auger and exclaimed: .  "I know that it is an Opa4"^ and ye  nro jealous because I am wealthier thau  ye all!"

Their appreciation is slow, but hearty,  and always worthily disposed. The  French aro given to exaggerating an  emotion uud to applauding an eccentricity. Even thoir subtlety Is overdone.  Tho German drama is cleaner, the family tie is mado much of, sentiment is  encouraged instead of being ridiculed, as  it too often is in America, but the Gorman point of view of Americans is quite  as much distorted as the Frenoh.

Thnt very turbulent episode,  by tho way, is about tbo nearest nppronch  over mado by the stngo in tho direction ot  war outsielo of the numerous wars ol  worels for which it is so justly famous.  And hero is tho story of the Astor place  riot, not as tho aged Rial to lounger tolls  it, but ns it actually occurred:  On May 23, 1890, thero disappeared tbe  last vostigo of Clinton hall, on Astoi  place, New York city, nnel since then the  Mcrcnntllo Library building has covorod  its site. But this Clinton hull was tbe  original Astor Place Opera Houso. In  1S49 ic was tho finest theater in tho city  nnd locateel in what was tho most intensely respectable residence part.    ,  In tho Astor library tliero is a pamphlet  published within a month after tho futed  night of May 10, 1S4U, with this impressive titlo page:  ACCOUNT OF THB  TERRIFIC,AND  FATAL RIOT  AT TUB  NEW YORK ASTOR PLACE OPERA DOUSE  ON" THE ~~IGH'- OF MAY 10, IS.?,  WITH   THK  QUARRELS OF FORREST AND MACREADY,  Including nil the   _au_*cs Which Leel to That  Awful Tragedy.   Wherein an Iufuri- -  ated Mol) Wus Quelled by the -  Public Auihoritic*..  Snddcn  Death or  Mutilation  of More Than  Fitly Victims.  Tho causes which led to it aro as follows:  In  1826   Edwin   Forrest  was  the  bright  - particular star of Gilfcrt'sliowery thentor.  Methods were crude, but thu financial results nt least wero satisfactory.   Tbo actor  soon loft tho class!, shades of tlio Bowery  and offered his fumous prize of $500 for a  trngody.    Mr. Stone's  "Motamora"  was  accepted and later in another competition  Dr. Bird's "Gladiator."  In 1S27 Macready, who was then 48  yours old, tho victim of a potty spirit of  fault Untling, mndo Iris initial bow to nu  American nuilioncc. But in Philadelphia  thoy interpreted some of his caustic ro-  marks ns an insult to tbo public.  In 1S35 Forrest visited Europo nnd after  a long'tour on tho continent appeared ns  Spartacus in Drury Lnno theater on Oct.  IT, 1836.J Ho met with success everywhere and roceiveel many courtesios from  oinlnont literary mon nnd'frohi-tbo~se"-f  his profession, particularly from Mr. Ma-  oroady. On his return to tho Unitoil States  ho wns feteel nt Philadelphia and offered a  congressional nomination nt the hands of  tho New York Democracy. It was in tho  Biimmor nf this year ho made his famous  Fourth of July oration.  In 1841 William Charles Maoroaily returned to America, but thoro wns then a  growing rivalry botweon tho two actors.  Mr.' nnd Mrs. Forrest went to London in  1845 for n second time to fulilll on engagement. During thoir visit, which lasted two yenrs, an open rupturo occurred In  tho friendly personal relations, that had  exl'tcd till then between tlio two mon,  and to tho subsequent zeal with which his  friends espoused the American's qunrrcl  was duo tho culminating unfortunalo riot  of Astor plnco.  Tho English failed to renow tho cordial  reception thoy hnd previously tond_r.il  Forrest, and, according to the olironiclor  of that day, "the ungovernable tragedian  was beside himsolf."  At Edinburgh he visited tho playhouse,  nnd it is said hissed Maoready'_ Hamlet from a box. Tho Insult was tho cause  of a bitter newspaper controversy. Aftor  this Forrest when attempting to play wns  hissed by the cntlro nudleiicu, uud later ho  failed to secure on engagement in Paris.  Deeply humilluted, he rcturnoil homo,  but the American press cheered him with  sympathetic words, and tho light wuxcil  warmer.  Macready again crossed the Atlautio in  October, 1848, and an thu :J0tli of that  month, played in Boston.' His reception  there was - disappointing, for Forrest's  friends were presont to avenge the wrongs  suffered by the American tragedian  abroad through tho Englishman's influence, it was believed.  Macready doolded to come to Now York,  , whoro Forrest was playing to crowded  houses. Niblo and Hackett leased the Astor Place Opera Houso and billed "Mno-  beth" for May 7, 1819: Forrust's friends  wore in evidence at the first performance)  and hissed the actor off tho stugc. Tlin  special squad of policemen on duty did  nothing.  Mayor Woodhull the next day protested  against another performance, but, the lessees lnslited on thoir rights, doiiiandcd  protection and referred to thoir $.*)'~0 license as the basis of tho claim. 1-clv.ctnnt-  ly the proteotion was finally granted-  The English actor had some supporters,  nnd among those who earnestly requeued  blm to oontlnuo and promised htm an >'n-  thualastlo recaption was Washington Irving.  In  anticipation   of   troublo,   however,  General Sandford ordered out eight companies of mllltlnl but  thore was not nny  Increase of the policR force.  IjODg boforo 7 o'clock the orawd began  surging toward tho entrance. In half an  hour tho thentor was crowdod and the  sulo of scats suspended.. On the outsielo,  filling tho street, was a mob constantly  growing in numbers and in thu intensity  of its anger. Finally it begun to storm  the Opera House, and the polico gave way  boforv tho torrlllo onslaught. Threo minutes later thoro was a clinrgo by n cavalry  regiment. It was mot by a volley of missiles���������stonos, broken bricks, pieces of  wood���������anil thu horsus, miiildunod with  fright, lurnoil and forced their riders Into  ignominious retreat.

THAT BROKEN  TRUCE  DROWNED AT SHOAL LAKE  Two Brothers Lose Their Lives Through  the Capsizing of a Boat  Shoal Lake, July 2-i.���������A very sad  accident occurred here this morning.  Henry G. Chambers, of this place, in  company with his brother John anil  wife, went for a sail on the lake.  A'lien fifty yards from shore a sudden  just of wind capsized the boat.throw-  ing the occupants iuto the water. The  brothers used every effort to keep  Mrs. ChambeiH afloat.and her screams  linallly attracted the attention of Messrs Scott and Beeston, who succeeded  in rescuing Mrs. Chembers, the two  brothers having already gone down.  The bodies were recovered about  live hours after the acccident in eight  feet of water.  To the Editor of The Herald:  Silt,���������'ihe. following appears im the  New Y?oi I: I leralel of the lO'.h instant,  headed "Advantages of the-Truce,"  "The extension of the truce has been  most advantageous to the American  forces." "According to General Sbafter's despatch he has taken advantage  of it by bringing up additional batteries and in making further preparations  for the assault on the Spanish forces."  I think the British generals  were right in not, acting in this way  way at Waleiloo and the Oiimca, ton.,  as the strict military definition of a  ti nee is "A suspension of hostilities  between two nations or nrmies for a  definite period, during whiclijieithcr is  at liberty to do tnii/lItintj lo benefit  itself at the expense of the other."  Truce and truth contain the same  root and imply that the agreement  must be honestly kept.  Yours faithfully.  T. K.  CHURCH DIRECTORY.  METHODIST CHURCH ��������� Kovelstoke.

Reginald, the son of J. C. Pilgrim, of  Winnipeg, as reported in yesterdays  telegram was only eight years old. It  appears that, the boy went down to  the Red river with a companion named Charles Goswell to bathe. While  undressing in a flat bottomed boat,  which appears to have been unfastened, and which drifteil into the river.  The lad had been forbidden ,to go .the  river, and hearing his elder brothers  Mjice, who had just come to the bank,  he was afraid and jumped into the  water to come on shore. None of  the boys could swim and Douglas was  drowned in sight of his brother and  companion, who were helpless to assist him. Great sympathy is felt with  the parents of the deceased boy.

With the growth of the trm-n greater care shoulel be exerciseel in ol-Mrv-
ing sanitary regulations. The heat of
July and August way he'productive
of sickness unless proper action is
taken. Slops anel refuse matter should
be properly buried, .and not be thrown
nut to fester in the burning sun and
breed germs of disease.
In this particular dislrict, wheije
there has been just enough work elone
to show that there is almost nn inexhaustible mineial supply waiting feir
the hand of man to utilize i_t, there is a
future bright enough to enconi-ago nnd
inspire anyone who has a dollar invested in property or business, rend te>
satisfy the nio.it skeptical that this is
a good place to live. A country with
such resources must be a progressive
country, and 1 progressive ronntry is
invariably a prosperous country.
