If your local store doesn't carry the  goods you need, the chances are it i.s  your fault, not theirs. They cannot  alloid to carry good things iu great  variety if you spend your dollars  abroad and your cents at home.  Give your stores the. opportunity'  and lhey will give you the goods.  Spend yonr money in a distant city  and all you will receive are the goods  you buy. Spend it in your town and  and it will come back to you. not only  in the goods you buy. but in better  streets, better schools- and better  everything.  Spend your money away from home  and you onlv receive back thu princi-  pal.  Spend your money at home and you  get back the principal and everlasting  interest.  Read your local papers.

A council was held and it was  decided to kill all the whites, which  was done next night while they were  asleep. The bodies weie taken to sea  in canoes and thrown overboard.  Nothing was known of the fate of the  unfortunate prospectors for nearly a  month after the wreck, when several  bodies came ashore badly decomposed.  The Indians then reported that the  Jesse and barge had been wrecked  and all lost.

It.  is in  fact   almost  completely   in  our   .  own hands  to   ensure   th'e   favorable  reception of   lhe proposed .venture in  -������..-   - -. j  London. Eng.

Tun much praise cannot be given to  the ladies of the church who were in-  sli'umentiil in getting up the ball,  whicli proved to be such a pronounced  .liece.ss. Tlie hall was beautifully ind  linnet artistically decorated, reflecting  great credit upon lhe decorative committee. The floor was in splendid  condition, and the music furnished  by the ladies wa������. excellent. Refreshments, provided by the ladies of the  congregation, were served during the  evening, .md those who were present  enjoyed a most thoroughly enjoyable  evening.

The surface  prospects    already     discovered      up  Laforme, Games and  Downie' creeks, '__  on Keystone Mountain and Lakeview"  and in  the.   Ground   Hog  Basin,   the  very large amounts of "gold  taken out  of the Big Bend during the historical _  stampede of the sixties and since, fully'_.  justified   the    belief   that Northwest'  Kootenay will prove on development  to coutain riches as extraordinary as  tbe silver leads of the Slocnn and .the  gold-copper      ledgps    of      Rossland.

The first, person so to  dub the natives of the strong little  island is believed to have been Arbuth-  nct, in whose ludicrous "History of  Europe." the English figure as "John  Bull." the-French as "Louis Baboon,"  and ihe Dutch as "Nicholas Frog."  A though which occurred to Washington Irving often must have occurred  to others. He wrote: "One would  think that in personifying itself a-  nation would picture something  grand, heroic and imposing; but it is  eharacteristic of the English, and of  their love for what is blunt, comic and  familiar that they embodied tlieir  national oddities in the figure 'of a  sturdy, corpulent old fellow, with a  red waistcoat, leather breeches, and  a stout oaken cudgel whom they call  John Bull." Nevertheless John Bull is  all right.    Our English correspondent writes:  The much needed rain has fallen copiously over the whole Kingdom during  the past week and there is no longer  any talk about the land being too  hard to plough.

Tliey take a live chicken  and an axe. The axe removes the  head of the chicken, whicli, so far  from appearing to appreciate the ceremony, not only kicks like a bay steer,  but goes into convulsions.  ...  Quite a number of chickens were  killed in connection wilh the recent  election protests. The chief of police,  lo whom the chickens go as perquisites,.is going to givo a barbecue to'all  bums who .drop, off the trains going  west. Bums going east get no chicken.  Go west, young-man.  ���������  ���������  ���������  The Chinoso have several ways of  swearing. So have ,wo. Besides this  chopping off the head of a' chicken,  which is symbolical of the ielea that  "f hope my head will be cut off, etc.," j  they have the breaking of a saucer, a  ceremony which means, "when I am ;  broke, may this saucer, etc.," Those  followers of Confucius are very able  washerwomen. They are crafty-  roosters, fairly good cooks and strictly  first class chambermaids, but wo must  not tako them seriously. That is,  unless wc have lost our wash ticket  with the little hieroglyphics and they  wont givo us our washing. Then we  'nave to take them seriously, and givo  their pigtails a yank.  M - _  We should keep them out of our  political system entirely. When a Mongolian in an English colony by dint  of washing dirty shirts and soiled-  collars makes himsolf a factor in our  eovernment, and steps into a modern,  civilized court room and cuts off the  head of a chicken as an assurance of  his veracity, allowing the blood to  spurt over eminent gentlemen like  Paddy Nolan and Senator Lougheed, It  is timo to call a halt.  ...  When thc Chinaman cut tho head  ofr that chicken, in taking the oath,  he chucked it into a box where it was  heard fluttering about for the next half  hour. Judge Winter, who was in tho  middle of a very grave exordium,  stopped short with some irritation  and made a snappy protest against  the propriety of chickens kicking the  bucket in court.    , ,.,,,1.1,.     1;._IJ1-... _..._.,      I.O      H_ ilm      ������>1_.IU...,,.  the decision is by _no meansjinal.j_hc  immediately.

It Is a matter of more than near-  ray that when there is a vacancy for  a clerkship In the metropolis of the  old country, that applicants stand in  rows and wait their turn lo see the  manager; this may not be exactly  true, but last week the poeturesque  city of Southwell, Notts, needed a  master for Its workhouse and there  were 71 applicants and the same week  a master for a board school being  wanted 187 fully qualified men applied  for the post- They are a bit thick on  the ground over there.  It's all very well to laugh at the idea  of  13 being an  unlucky number,  but  there are very many  worthy    people  who would sooner go hungry than sit '  down to dinner with 13 as the number  of  diners.    The . Birmingham     Daily-  Mail   illustrates   the   working  of   the  superstition    as    follows:   A   man   in  the black country had rescued 12 per-  ple from drowning.

"There cein scarcely bo a doubt llint tho  treatment of Washington's last illness by  tho doctors wns  littlo  short of  iniirilur,"  ��������� snys Mr. Paul Ford in "Thu Trtio George  Washington." Thoso woro tlio days of tho  ���������'kill or euro"   treatment,   whon   strong  plnstcrs, jalnp and blceilitig, tho universal  romedios, left littlo hopo for patients who  oould not withstand both drugs and disease.  Professor John Flsko writes In hiii "Old  Vlrglnin and. Hor Neighbors" that when  Waablngton In full vigor found that'ho  had caught a bad cold ho sent for tlio doctors. .Meanwhile ho hatl half a pint, of  blood takon from lilm by onu of his overseers. Of tlio threo p_y.i_-.wih* in nttoiitliiuco  ono was his dour friond, tho good Scotchman, Ilr. .Tames Craik. His colleague,  Dr. Klistia mole, saiel:  "Do not blcoel tho general. Ho needs  all his strength."  Ills ndvico was not liecdeel.   Threo copious bleedings followed, In tho last of which  a quart of blood wns taken.   Tho third at-  jtondunt, Dr. Oustavus Drown, afterward  : expressed bitter regret that Dr. Dick's ticl-  ��������� vico was not takon.    Besides this wholo-  | salo bleeding tho pationt was -dosed with  : calomel anel tartar enictio and scarified  [with blisters and poultices.  I    "Tho question is suggested," writes Mr.  Fiske, "if Washington had lived a elozon  years longer, would thoro have been a second war with England?"  .    Tho heroic methods of the seventeenth  contury, which, though killing tf--iiisands,  wero continued far  into tho oi.litcenth,  ni-o exhibited  by tho itoms of a "hill rendered by Dr. Haddon. of York abolt  1G138  for performing nn amputation.    They Included "ono .highly flavored  and two ordinary cordials, threo ointments for  the  wound, an oiutment precipitate, tho operation of lotting blood, a purgo per diem,  two purges electuaries, which are powelcrs  mixed with  honey or sirup, external  applications, a cordial and  two astringent  powders, bloodletting, a" defensiTo and a  largo cloth."  TIMID ELEPHANTS.  A   DOCTOR'S-HEROISM.  Hia Bomnrkablo Feat Required  Physical  Strength as Well lis Bravery.  The author df "Tho Jtalakand Field  Forco" records tho following deed,'which"  was performed in India and was indeed a  noblo ouo. It occurred after night had  fallen upon a hotly contested battleground.  Tho British had with great diflioulty ro-_  pulsed an enemy overwhelmingly superior"  in numbers and had withdrawn into thoir  defenses. Tho deadly "hollow soino elis-  tanco in front of-their lines,-called the  Cup, was commanded from several directions by the lire of tho natives nnd swept  at intervals by their swordsmen.  "I-ieutonunt. Ford had been seriously  wounded in tlio shoulder. The bullet cut  the* artery, and ho was bleeding to eu_ith  when Surgeon Lieutenant V. Hugo caino  to his aid. Tho lire wns too hot to allow  of lights being used. Thero was no cover  of any sort. It was at the bottom of tho  Cup. Nevertheless tho surgeon struck a  match nt tho peril of his life nnd examined  tho wound. Tho match went out aniiel a  sputter of .bullets, which kicked up the  dust oil around, but by its uncertain light  ho saw tho nature of tho injury.  "The cllicer had already fainted from  loss of blood. The doctor seized tho artery,  and iis no other ligature was fc-i'thcoming  ho remained under firo for threo hours,  lioldhig'u man's"Ufo bc'twcpn liis finger,  nnel thumb. Whe_i at length it scorned  that tlio enemy had broken into tho camp,  ho picked up tho unconscious officer in his  arms and, without-relaxing his hold, bore  him to a placo of safety."  For many hours after this' feat, as rc-  niarkablo for the strength displayed as for  the heroism which inspired it, the gallant  surgeon's arm was paralyzed and useless  from tho strain. Littlo wonder. Not every man'could carry another away, using  one arm only, and with tho other hand retaining a grasp which hael already lasted  threo hours upon a severed artery.  "Hod ho not had tho strength to do so  Lieutenant Ford must havo died,'-'is'tho  way his commanding officer put it whon  he narrated tho act in his dispatches.  Stories Which Show How Easily the Big  Brutes Are Frightened.  An English writer of Indian experience  declares th.'i.t, t __ vaunting of tho intelligence o( tho elephant-creates a falso impression. Like that of thu horso, the intelligent., of tho elephant has curious limitations,  A few mouths ngo tho populace of o  smalltown near Madras wero frightened  out of their wits by a runaway elephant,  which brol.il from its liuilinut's control  unci ran through lhu tow"i, smashing everything thai, lay In Its path. It had Im-oii  frightened into a stato of lnsiino alarm by  thu pattering of raindrops on Its rider's  umbrella.  A friend ot -tlio saiiiii writer onco had a  singular expcrlencuof n somewhat similar  sort. Whon "out In tho district" in Burma, ho grew tired of riding, ou his elo-,  pliant, which also carried his servants and  baggage, and bought a pony In ono of tho  villages. Ho was careful to make suro  'that the pony i was not afraid of elephants, ,'  but it never occurred to lilm that tho eie-"  pliant might bo afraid ot ponies.  Burly tho next morning ho sent'his baggage nnd servants otT on the elephant, with  orders to halt for lunch at n villages ten  nillos away, and whoil ho had finished  somo work ho followed on his pony. When  a milo or so from tho halting place, ho  saw the elephant hunching along in advance anil trotteil on to hurry up tho mahout. As ho approached, tliu mahout, a  Burniaii, began to gesticulate. The Kng-  lisliiuan nnd his Bengal servants know no  Burmese, and tho Buriiiiin knew 116-  tonguo but his own. Ho was much excited.  Tho Englishman guessed thai something  was amiss, and, breaking into a gallop to  seo what it might, be, was astonished to  seo the elephant start oil' at a run. Throe  times the oxeited and angry mahout succeeded in stopping llie beast after a run of  a mile or so, anil three times did tho Englishman,ride up to see what was thc matter, only to observe with astonishiiiont  that the elephant rushed off each timo.  Finally the despairing'mahout steered  the animal off thu rond into swampy  ground, and thus, shaking olf pursuit,  plowed his way bneik em foot to tho halting place, whero ho found iin interpreter  to oNpIain that the elephant had been terrified by thu approach of tho pony.  BATHING  IN   MANILA.  Be  Teeth as Big as Vour. Hand.  "Whoever has looked insido an elephant's mouth has seen a strango sight,"  said an elephant trainor. "Elephants havo  no front, teeth, and they nover eat flesh or  any foeiel that requires tearing apart.  Kight teeth aro all they have, two abovo  and below on each side, huge" yellow molars as wide as a man's hand and a couplo  of Inches thick.   -  "Over theso hay or fodder Is shifted by  tho queerest, ugliest tongue in tho wholo  animal kingdom, n tongue that is literally hung at both ends, having' no power of  niovcmont except in tho middle, . lieni it  shifts back and forth, from side to sido,  arching up against tho roof >'f llie Id.".'  [- mouth liko nn immenso wrinkled pink  sorpent. Thoro is nothing strnngor than  tho working of an 'elephant's tonguo, unless it bo tho working of his breathing up;  puratus when ho sleeps.  "Elephants, liko human beings, have  two sets of teeth. Tho milk teeth, which  nro smaller than the permanent molars,  full out when the animals uro about 1 _  yenrs old. Theso htiby tooth, which ore  nevertheless enormous, aro occasionally  picked up by circus men among tho fodder  and prescrveel as curiosities."  riiotograpby In the Courts,  Photography is often called Inlo court  as a witness whoso testimony cannot bo  impeached.

'  Marvin, writing in The Overland Monthly, says:  By far tho -greater proportion of these  are girls, ranging from 10 years of age to  tliat In'dulinltc period that follows 20 years.  The chatting and bustling of 4,000 or  3,000 women ought to bo enough to set  any man crazy, yet tho superintendent of  tho manufactories is a halo, hi'arty and  sonsiblo fellow. Tho noiso mado by'han-  dling tho .tobacco is distracting enough,  but when aided and abetted by 5,000 female tongues the* result cannot bo imagined or described.  'Aftor the labors of tho dny arc over the  employees tako their departure from the  factory in droves.

Bedtime In Canada.  Any one who has visited Canada realizes tlio difference botween Yankee  hustling aud the easy going way they  do things up there. "I should love to  go visiting in Canada," says a tired  wanderer, "if tho people there over  went to bed." "They never go to bed,  uud thoy never get up," commented a  Hibernian who had been tliere.  Something must be wrong with the  old axiom of how to be healthy, wealthy  and wise, for the first at least these  Canadians are, and they rarely go to  bed much before midnight, nor breakfast much before 9 o'clock. It is an old  country custom handed down and comfortably enjoyed. The 9:30 p. in. bedtime of American domesticity is there  unknown, aud the 7:30 breakfast belongs solely to the lowest laboring  classes. '-"   ���������        .
