The hill amending the Puhlic School  Act, which lias passed its final reading,  i.s one of considerable interest for  people living in 'nn incorporated city  like Kevelstoke. The hill divides thu  cily sehi til districts into three classes:  No. I. Ihose in' which the average  aclu.il daily attendance equals or  exceeOs 1000 anil include-: at prc-enl  Victoria and Vancouver: No. 2,-cities  with an average daily attendance  equalling 2.10 but not exceeding IHI!),  comprising Nanaimo, Nelson, New  \Vi*sliiiiu>.tei and Itnssland* No. Ii,  cities with an average daily attendance  below 2"0 comprising Columbia.

School districts of the lirst class aie  -to have seven trustees, of the second  class five and of the third thiee.  Trustees in newly created city school  districts such as Kevelstoke, elected  prior to December 10D1 will only hold  office until January 1902, at which  time in cities ol the second class live  candidates will he elected, the highest  two for a term of two years and the  next three, lor a term of one year and  in cities of the third class three, two  for two and one for one year. And at,  subsequent annual electionslin the one  case three trustees and two trustees  alternately ..hull he elected lo serve  I'or two years and in the other one  trustee and two trustees alternately  shall be elected for the same* term. The  board is to meet once a month aiid the  majority to constitute a quorum. No  city or town "can lie transferred from  one class to another'except during the  month of July and then only with .the  consent of the Lieut.' Governor in  council. In the case of such n transfer  the first election of trustees under the  new canditions shall lie .held as'directed hy a special ord-jr in council. All -  these amendments come into force at  once.  The followiug amendments come  into force on Jan. 1st 1902. " The  trustees are to lix and p.iy the salaries  of the teachers and such' salaries and  all other expenses of the schools are to  bo'borne by the municipal corporations  with the aid ot an annual per capita  grunt, based on the average daily  attendance,' of -$13 to cities of the flrst  class," $15,to cities ofv 'the second .class  u..iV$20 tovciii'es .in'-ithe^'tKJid.'fClafts:;  An additional grant of $300 per annum  of each hjfeh school' teacher employed  is provided for."        * _''.-'"''  The ' a'ance of the ariiendments  relate to the certificates of teachers  except section 10 which renders  attendance of children within the  school age compulsory within city-  school districts and 20 which provides  for the appointment of a city superiii-  tenden tof schools.        ,       .'

Supposing, however,  that we are still next January hovering round the 250 mark it, seems 'that  there    is  likely  to  be    considerable"  THE PROGRESS OFAYEAR.  C. P.

An  average daily attendance of 240 at $20  per head equals $4800 of a grant, while  an average daily attendance of 260 at  $15 means only $3900 and perhaps  another teacher required. We might  only have to raise twelve' or fifteen  hundred dollars or we might require  nearly doubly that amount. Oue"thing  however, is quite certain. Unless  we get a move on and bring pressure  on the government to put an apprt ���������  pi'iution in the estimates for a' proper  school biiUding here this year then  in two or at tbe most three years we  shall he under the necessity of raising  tlie money to erect one ourselves' And  the HEUAl.D'recitei'atee the assertion  mad* in its la**t issue that it has reason  f.o believe that if prompt steps are  taken to put our case, properly before  the government the appeal will meet  with very favorable consideration.    '  ' Visit ofthe Supt. of Education. ���������  Alexander Robinson, - the Superintendent of Education, who is making a  tour of inspection through the province, spent Wednesday in town. He  visited the public school and was  greatly pleased with the" ninnner in  which aftairs are being conducted by  Principle Sullivan and his staff. In an  interview the Herald pointed out to  Mr. Robinson the necessity of an  entirely new and modern Bchool building here, hut we cannot any to what  extent he was impressed with our  arguments. Mr. Robinson as an  official appears to savey his job and  the Hkrald hopes to see him round  againgettitig acquainted wilh the local  situation in the various school districts under his care.  to Make Nelson, B. C  way Centre.  During lhe last 12 months Nelson has  advanced rapidly as a ruil.vay centre.  This has been the lesult of lhe program  inauguiiited by the Canadian Pacific  railroad for the purpose of developing  its facilities to t.he point of efficiency  warranted by the gtowlh of the  country of which Nelson is the commercial centre. The work . was  inaugurated last summer, when the  Canadian Pacific railroad commenced  work on its yard and station buildings,  The old yaid wns torn up and a new  system of tracks aggregating three  miles of sidings was constructed. The  passenger depot and freight sheds  were replaced by modern huilditigs of  more than double the former capacity,  the now passenger station being  modeled on the lines of the Union  depot at Spokane.  Then the section of the Nelson &  Port Sheppard track fr om Nelson to  Five i\Iile Point was purchased, running rights being conceded the former  owners,'together with the (use of the  Canadian Pacific station- buildings.  An appropriation of $50,0CO was expended in improving the alignment of this  section and it was added to the Balfour extension, built last summer and  fall by John W. Stewart of Spokane at  a. cost of $500,000.  Another appropriation of $C0,000.was  spent in improving the line between  Nelion and Robson. 'and a further  large sum if, to be disbursed at once in  moie improvements to the;Nelson  Robson section.' This road was built  some ten years_ago_ and the original  plans call for a first class road.  Work is in full swing on a half -'million dollar bridge across the Columbia  river at Sproat's landing, 28 miles west  of NelsoD. When this is completed  through trains will run from Nelson to  Rossland via the Rossland,h.ianch and  to Midway via the Columbia & Western. The facilities for handing cars  between Nelson and Kootenay landing,  a 40 mile water haul, are secured by  the construction of the tug Valhalla, a  high power craft costing $20,000 and a  new 15 car barge costing $12,000. When  the through service is inaugurated the  crews of 21 locomotives, and the train  crews for the entire division will be  ���������located,,-here,.'and., a machine, shop  cirpahl6'?5fvh"iiidli"ng-i"vli'repairs to*vthe  power and rolling stock will be erected,  making the; division independent ff  the Pacific" division- repair shops at  Revelstoke:  '"   A USEFUL RELIC.  Now that the old Washington hand  press which has drynursed the Revelstoke Herald through the first-four  years of its existence has been relegated to ii corner of the office for the  eoodness knows how oftentli time in  its checkered career, a -word or two on  the history of this still vigorous relic  of the past may not be out of place, as  the old "man-killer" possesses quite a  history of its own and has assisted in  the incipient struggles of more than  one notable point in the great Canadian West. As far as its .history is  known it was in Winnipeg at the time,  of the Red River rebellion, over thirty  years ago and with its aid was published the rehel organ known as the  New Nation', which was edited of all  persons in thc world- by an' old  Crimean officer named Spence, who  died;not long ago. while holding down  a governmehfjob in-Edmoiilon.���������During one phase of thef troubles the  office of the' New Nation was raided  and sacked by a- party of loyalists  headed by Dr. Schultz afterwards Sir  The St. Elmo is Looking Well as a Result ofthe Winter's Work.  Work on the St. Elmo has improved  the appearance of that pioperty very  much. The men in the upper tunnel  are now woi king in about 18 inches of  gonil ore. In the lower tunnel the  drifts both ways from lhe crosscut  aggregate about GO feet. It is very  likely that the crosscut will he continued in to cut tlie. hig vein during the  coming season. This would.mean a  driving nf at least 200 feet giving a  veitic.il depth of almost 200 feet.���������  Topic.  Why Some Mines are Failures.  The London Mining Journal, iu an  article headed '���������Quacks in Mining."  gives the following as an example, of  how some Boards of Directors conduct  their biisines*--. As to t he effect of such  "management" upon the mines we in  the. Slocan do not have "to he toH. lt  is too obvious to require telling.  "Some of ns have doubtless heen present at, these'entertainments," says the  Joiirnul, speaking of hi'aid meetings,  '���������when a series of well dressed gentlemen rush in one after another,  exchange commonplace's, light their  cigarettes and proceed to .business.  "Nothingnew, Mr. Secretary? Well,  the manager's report,"'I vote that's  taken as lead, pass on to.the next. A  series of letters, I say, yoii'll look, after  themt'there's a good fellow ; important  yon say. never mind( they'll wait. I  must-catch the 12 50. By jove. 1 must  be oif ; see see you all next, week." Ihe  chairman is" off and all the business is  shunted. ��������� The'poor manager is left to  shift for himself and later on he will  be badgered-foi" not bringing soine-  thing'or the other to the notice of the  board earlier, thereby wasting precious  time. We are quoting now,from actual  experience, which,teaches us that it is]  a rare thing to find a. board take an'  ajtive .andMntelligent interest in the'  business of a'mining, eompanv. In  short they are quacks.-.Nor is-this  surprising.when one remembers that  the half d5>zen directors are probably  men absorbed in their own respective  occupations, and that the technicalities  of mines, mining reports and plans are  as so much Greek to. them.' The fault  lies in their pretending to know and to  he able to direct wheu-thcy are utterly  ignorant and incapable."  AUTOMATIC COUPLINGS.  The New Device Tried as an   Experiment in   England.  From London Leader.  Tbe latest automatic coupling device  ���������designed to save the lives of the  railway men���������is the product of a  Scotsman, Mr. John Darling. Mr.  Darling has been at it, for 20 years, and  as far back us 15 years ago won a prize  of ������100 with an automatic coupling  which was judged the best in the  competition open to the whole of the  world.  ��������� Yesterday he explained his latest  achievement in the line to a gatheiing  of experts, which included Lord Kelvin, at the Ij. and N. XV. railway goods  yard. Worship street.'  The contrivance is simple enough,  the coupling taking place on the  slightest contact. When the two  carriages to he coupled are brought  together the front shackle or Jink  passes in between two bell-mouth jaws  connected by the drawbar on the  opposite vehicle. The shackle pushes  down a tumbler or lifter, and this  operation releases a pin which, by  means of a spring, passes through the  shackle and the paws, and automatically couples the vehicles.  The operation of uncoupling is performed from either side of the vehicles,  and without going between the  wagons, hy simply pulling a handle  connected to the crossbar, upon which  the pin is withdrawn from its hold in  the opening, aud the shackle falls from  between the jaws. _   -  All sorts of advantrges are'. claimed  for the contrivance. It is said' to be as  efficient when the vehicles. come .together with force as when only slight  contact is made; while with its help it  is,even contended"that a.-runaway  vehicle could be picked up.  Lord-"Kelvin seemed-well -pleased  with the practical experiment yesterday, butrailwaymen were not at all  enthusiastic.1 The latter admitted that  the contrivance would, add to the  rapidity und safety of the coupling,  but several of them thought that in  theeffoit to work the lever (for the  uncoupling) the railwayman -would  stand a good chance ot'gettingbetween  tbe buffer*-;, and others! again, thought  that the apparatus was still too "complicated.  VISIT OF THOS. TAYLOR, M.P.P.  The Member for Revelstoke Consulting  His Constituents.  Mr. Thomas Taylor, M. P. P., came  in I'riuii Victoria on yesterday morning's train with the intention of  consulting his constituents a.s to thu  needs of the district during recess.  Mr. Taylor has done good work among  Ihe head*-, of departments since the  session opened and when the estimates  are brought down it will be found that  the requirements of the district hiwe  received the most careful consideration in every particular. With  regard to the matter of a now school  building, which since the passing of  the .'imeiidiiients to the' School Act  has become of such importance, Mr.  Taylor quite recognizes the strength  of "our case and has already pointed  out the mutter to Hon. J. D. Prentice,  .Minister of Education, and the  Ui.j:..j.I) believes that, the result of his  work will take material shape*  iu the estimat.'.-s. The matters of the  appropriation for the wagon road,  steamship bonus and hospital building  irrant are already as good as settled.  The more sei ious questions such as the  railway policy of the government the  IlrcR.vi.n feels, as apparently do the  rest ol Mr. Taylor's constituents', that  .is the. aspect of affairs is so variable  it is best to leave our member with a  free hand, relying upon him to do us  he considers best fur the constituency  and province. Some ridings have  tied their member's hands in a way,  which i.s very likely hereafter to be a  cause of great regret.  A report of last .night's meeting of  the city council will appear in our  next issue.  Mark Hyatt, C.'P. It. bridge foreman, has left the Nelson district to  return to Revelstoke.

In the Philadelphia Post of recent  date, W. J. Chalmers has an article on  the salting of mines. Nearly all of the  methods touched by Mr, Chalmers are  hoary with age aud hardly applicable  to mining operations of thc present  date.  One would juilge from Mr. Chalmers'  experiences that there was only one  class of people in the world thit were  adepts at mine stilting and those  people the original owners, the discoverer or the prospector.  The actual salting of mines by the  old well known methods has actually  gone out of date and is altogether gone  out of practice today, but trie more  progressive and tip to date "method of  salting a mine, is not lo salt the mine  at all, but to salt the engineer's report,  hy greasing his lingers.  Several years ago General Alger  thought he had lieen swindled by some  method of salting and went so far as  to have the parties arrested ; but even -"  if the mine was salted at the time, it  has since proven to be a very rich  property. So we ask, when can a' -1  mine truthfully be considered as  salted? '  The manner in which a great  many  people invest in mining is sufficient to  open the way for most any old kind of  smooth  promoter, to  get  along very  nicely without resorting to any of the  old methods of salting.-  - Usually a friend of those interested  in the purchase of a mining property is  selected  to   go   out  and examine the  mining property'simply because they  know , him  to  be honest, not that he  knows anything about  the  business,  petting into_the property, he is easily  led'to the richest portions of the. veins  and f rom one.tQ another, and not being < J'-vJV  posted -as 'to* the   business^*is^easfly**"'*-'"  convinced that it is a most .wonderful. .iv  mine^   ' "       ' '   "'  Furthermore,'it is vpry natural for  the.man who is on the ground' to become   enthusiastic ;   in fact, the most  natural thing in the world and the less  he knows about the business the more  enthusiastic he becomes.  , Th'e way  some syndicates manage  their  properties   even  after *��������� getting  hold of a good one, is sufficient to dis-   ,  courage  mining' investments.    It-is  only   a few  years ago  that  a foreign  syndicate were  separated from. over  $1500,000  in  this state.   Nearly all of  this   immense  sum   was supposed  to,  have been  expended in  development.  Several experts! were  sent  out fiom,  London,  including one of the owners  who, by the way, 'only got as far as  Denver, and was so well pleased with  western hospitality that he returned  home   without  even   seeing bis own  property.   All of these men reported  favorably, but the long delay in   getting results caused thc owners to hare  the property examined by an engineer  who had no interest in tbe] company.  His   report  showed that  only $30,000 *  _had_beerL������xpended in actual improvement and development of the property,  lt would seem lhat the greater part of  the $1,500,000 had been salted instead  of the mine.  The fact is that the opportunities for  salting a report and diverting the  capital" from development into the  pockets of disreputable person are far  greater and far more lucrative thnn  attempting the actual salting uf a  mine.���������Western Mining Wotld.  1'..-��������� ���������'V  .   ;**���������,-��������� ���������    >���������*;  ,,' ���������  *.">'  $1.50 STERLING SILVER MOUNTING on  Handles of Horn and Rare Wood.

The latest movement in England in
the direction of promotins; temperance is the formation under the direction Of Earl Grey, of "The Public
ttWlie Trust company, limited," -which"
proposes to lease or purchase existing public houses, acquire all the.new
licenses, and manage thc properties
'so secured .for the benefit of tho
local community. The company expects to return flve per cent interest
on.ita capital and to devote its surplus earnings to the construction and
maintenance of churches, schools.
' parks, "theatres, libraries, hospitals
and baths.
Lord Grey Is reported to have said:
���".Mo modern temperance advocate.
trilling to take a practical view of
the liquor problem any longer believes in prohibition. It has proved
a. failure in the United States as
well as in'Great Britain* Regulation is the" only weapon with which
we, here in England at any rate,
can fight the trade entrenched behind
��20,000,000 of annual net profits. XVe
figure that so long as' the people
will and must drink, their" spend
tngs should come back to them in
stead of merely still further fattening
a gluttonous private monopoly. We
hope to promote temperance, flrst, by
revolutionizing the entire saloon atmosphere, and secondly, by pushing
' forward the sale ot non-intoxicants.
A third means is by giving tea and
coffee and food prominence over beer,
whl3key and spirits. Vie shall operate in the beginning ia the rural districts, invading the cites by degrees."
Among the associates of Lord Grey
.ire the Duke of Northumberland. Viscount Ridley, late home secretary,
and Sir Edward Grey, M.P.
A   Great   Field   of    Petrified     Clams
The petrified forest of Arizona is
rated ono of tho wonders of tho continent, but upon the shores of Virago
sound, British Columbia, cau be seen
something oven more wonderful than
the stone trees of tho desert, state. On
the tidal flats of tbo sound arc
thousands ot petrified clams ot all
sizes, from little fellows as big a
four-bit piece to thoso as largo as a
desert plate. It is well known that
empty clam shells in certain waters
-will in time, owing to the action of
shifting sand, accumulate a coating
of soft sandstone and finally disappear
within tho enveloping folds, but it
is another thing to find petrified clams
which make tho find at Virago sound
all tho moro wonderful.
In 09 cases out of 100 tho stone
clams found at that place have projecting from what was " once tho
shell, a neck, varying in size of
course, according to the dimensions
of the clam, when tho grip of stone
first commenced to make itself felt.
It is tho presence ot this neck which
removes all doubt concerning the
genuineness ot tho transformed clams
So far as known, Captain Gett, ot
the steamer New England, is thc
first to discover the presence of the
inedible clams at Virago sound. He
first ran across them when tlio vessel
was north on one hf her recent fishing expeditions and gathered up a dozen or so of them and brought them
down. His collection is a good one,
embracing nearly all sizes, and can
be seen hy anyone when the New
England  is  in  port.
The clams aro not the only curios
the captain can claini to havo discovered on Virago sound; he has
also a largo section of the trunk of
a petrified tree, which is in the very
hest state of preservation, the grain
of the wood and tho rough edges
where it was broken in tho long
ago, being plainly visible. Running
diagonally across the piece in tho
possession of Captain Gott is a huge
knot and tbo bark, now turned to
stone, has thc appearance of cottonwood.
The captain states that on 'the
shores of the sound there is indisputable evidence that a large portion of
the tidal flats were covered to a
depth of 10 or 12 feet by a land slide
of great area in days gone by.      In
The appended remarks   of the New
~ BenveirEedge""s'hould-b"e-brought-for--
eibly  before    tbe    attention    of   thc
politicians of British  Columbia:
Nineteen men were sent down the
hill from the Hariney the past week,
rcdnclng the force to about a dozen.
No reason is given for this big reduction in the working force. It
ma7 or may not have some connection with the general movement well
organized by the mine owners to
bring forcibly before the local anil
Dominion parliaments th? absolute
necessity of " favorable legislation.
Nothing will so quickly accomplish
their purpose. -Tht* -mine owners
have some cause for ilcspcriite action.

10 "feet deep*in the .ground ,near the
shore. These shells wore of large

were lying placidly on the flats'.when
buried. The slide must have taken
place two hundred or more jrears ago
since some shells -were found beneath
the decayed stump of a large tree and
moreover, out of this stump there
sprang a sapling of some ten or fifteen years growth. There may be

Even Chances for His Life���A
Now York, April C.���Charles A.
Davis, 3-1 years old, is a patient in thoi
Seney hospital, Brooklyn, suffering
with a chance for his life, from a
b'rokon neck. Ills father says he
was told that tho condition wns similar to thnt of a man who had been
hanged. The hospital authorities
refuso to discuss the case, and Dr.
Loomis S. Pilcher, of 358 Grand av-
euue, who is said to have performed
an operation on Davis on December
19, is also reticent. He will say
only that thero is a man named Davis
in the hospital and that ho , has a
broken neck.
Davis after tho accident, which is
said to have caused his Injury, was
treated'in thc King's county hospital
anil at that, time there "was nothing
about his condition which indicated a
fracture of the ver..et>ra. Ko was
ablo to walk when ho left the hospital on August IS of last year.
There was no paralysis, and the only
thing the doctora In the King's
county hospital noted was a stiffness
about tho neck, which they attributed
to a strain of the ligaments.
Davis was injured in Flatbush ou
August Ith of last year. He was a
painter, and was at work on the roof
of a house when ho fell 15 feet. He
si ruck squarely on his feet, it is said,
But complained to his fellpw workmen, who rang to pick him up, of
pains In the back ot his neck.
An ambulance was called and Davis
was taken to the King's count}' hospital. He was placed Iii the hospital thero and examined for a possible
fracture of the vertebrae.
Tho surgeons found no sign of .one
and decided tliut tho only injury
Davis had received was a severe
strain of the ligaments of the neck.
On August IS Davis was taken home
by friends. At that time he was able
to walk, and the physicians of the
hospital expected that ho* would
speedily recover.
But Davis did not improve. On
October 23 he became paralysed, unable even to move his head, and as
he was in need of help, Rev. Dr.
James Farrer. pastor ofthe First Reformed Dutch 'church, became interested and had him removed to,the
Seney hospital, where one.of Dr. F&r-
rcrs parishioners has endowed a
Mr. Davis' father sqys he-has been
told that an operation was performed,
there by Dr. Loomls' . L... Pilcher on
.December '10. He does not know
th details, but says' he was informed
that it. had been' found that the skull
was detached Irom-the. pivotal'vertebra. One physician told the'father
fhat the elfect was somewhat similar
to the*condition of the neck of a man
who has been banged. During the operation Mr.' Davis was informed an
abnormal growth about the injured
bone was removed, antl then the
rkull was put back In its iilace.
Thc physicians 'at th" time ex-
presed the belief that their patient
could not live more than two days, as
lie did not stem to have strength
nnough to recover from the shock of
the operation. To their surprise,
however, he became stronger, and
now can nod his head and is able to
movo his arms somewhat. They allow him now . a fighting chanco for
life.     ��� ��� -i ��� - '     "
A Thousand Russian Students Desire
lo Share Tolstoi's Fate���They
Wish to Be Excommunicated.
"One thousand students of the University of Keiff have forwarded a
petition to the holy synod," says the
Odessa correspondent of" the Dally
Express, "in which they ask to be
excommunicated with Count Tolstoi
"St. Petersburg, April 2.���It was

sitting ia his study), the attempt
being attributed to a desire for revenge, growing out of the excommunication  of Count Tolstoi.

The Strange   Tale   of . the   Death   of
Sir  Arthur  Curtis   in   the Wilds
A Winnipeg paper a few days "ago
was authority for the statement that
Roger Pocock of London, was on
his was fo Ashcroft to proceed thence
north in search'of-the bones of .Sir
Arthur Curtis, Bart., says the Van
couver Province.
Thc story of the loss of Sir Arthur
will be fresh in the minds of most
Westerners. He was one of a number
of wealthy Englishmon who answered
an advertisement " which Roger Pocock had inserted " in the English
papers offering to guide a party to the
Klondike  in  the early days  of 189S
Pocock asserted that he knew the
country well and that he had seen
service in tho Mounted Police, so
ho was- well able to guide a party
through any wilds. So the- party
started from Ashcroft to - tako the
overland  route.
Of their method, or lack of method, in getting""along a great deal he-
came known in after months, but
said '-that a party more utterly ig
jiorant in woodcraft or more hope
lessly at a. loss on n difficult trail
never left the confines of civilization.
Rumors began to'come back about
their mishaps and finally late in 1898
the whisper that Sir Arthur Curtis
had strayed away to certain death,
was confirmed by Roger Pocock himself, who came out-lo the coast with
the news that the party had broken
up and that Sir Arthur's death was
beyond question. Pocockrs story,
which was published exclusively In
the Province at the time, created 'a
Bensatlon���a- sensation which was intensified a few weeks later when
others ot tho party came out and
accused Pocock of having deserted
them. They also stated in no uncertain terms thatJPocok had been no
use as a guide, that he had Unu* and
again led them astray, that lie had
been responsible for most of their
troubles, and that it was through his
gibes that Curtis had left camp never
to return.
It was then discovered that Pocook
had served in the Mounted Police, but
only for a few months and then on
the plains. He had little more knowledge of woodcraft than had the avor-
       Englishman     frosli     from    the
classic, pave of Piccadilly or the
Strand. A well known Canadian engineer, who iiad passed the party
on tho way up, stated to the Province shortly afterwards, that they
could have been trusted to lose themselves anywhere, for he never saw
such a hopeless lot of ;nen on a trail
And so now it is said that Pocock.
feeling sorry for Lady Curtis and
her young son, is going hack to look
for Sir Arthnpr's hones. It is to
be hoped that .the t|tie3t will he successful, but whether it is or not, Mr.
Pocock can he relied on for an interesting story when he comes out���
that is if he ever does come out.

Tho man who* smoked a million dbl"'
U*.rs is lying on his deathbed in a
frugal homo at Columbus.
He is Colonel W. G. Baron, who became somewhat famous as an officer
ln the Confederate army and later
distinguished himself by leaving behind him a pathway of burned bank
notos, certified checks and securities
of great value. He Is suffering from
a slow and fatnlmalndy, and his physicians say he will. never leave his
bed  alive.
Colonel Baron became known a, few
years ago as one of tho most 'reckless
speculators In the  United  States."'���
He identified himself with wild and
visionary schemes, and whoro other'
conservative .speculators refused to
risk a nickel he tossed his entire fortune and''won. Fortuso smiled upon
every risk he took and ho mado enormous profits because of tho "desperate chances ho took. His madness
mado him worth $5,000.000... .,
Colonel Baron had a son whom he
loved with all tho forco of his passionate southern nature. It was for
tho son,' ho' said, that he proposed
to build up a fortune larger than any
other individual ��� in America.
With tho death of his son. who was
killed by a train, Colonel Baron lost
his ambition to. attain wealth, and
seemed possessed only by a frantic
desire to get rid of his fortune. He
burned it up as rapidly as ho had
accumulated it. It was his custom to
enter a cigar store and purchase a
single cigar. , Ho nover bought two at
a time, and' Invariably paid for tho
cigar with a bill ranging from $1
up and would never -accept any
Then he would step to tha cigar
lighter ', adn rolling _ up another note'
of large "denomination, he would light
it from tho cigar 'lighter. From the
burning money ho would light hiB
cigar' and toss tho fragment of tho
bill into the cuspidore. Ha smoked
from 15 to. 20 cigars a day, and thoy
cost him for the cigar and > light on
an average $100' each.
His friends .did all in their power
to prevent Baron from continuing in
his madness, but to no avail.. . They
even applied to tho courts to have
him declared insane and to have a
guardian appointed. On such occasions he had no difficulty in proving
that he was perfectly sano. 'In fact
his only mania was for getting rid. of
his own. money.
A .few years ago .he found himself
without a'- dollar-' bill, 'and- without
credit.    He could no .longer continue

Ownership  From the People's Point of View  Tho following interesting interview  with Premier Seddon of New Zealand  appears   in   the   correspondence    of  Frank G. Carpenter to tho St. Louis  Republic:  The conversation was turned to  somo of the new movements in New  Zealand, and I asked the premier  about the government control of the  railways.    Said I:  "Your excellency you have been a  railroad man from the ground up.  You have worked iu tho shop, "iou  run an engine, and bad to do with all  sorts of railroad construction.! You  are now the chief manager of a government which haa buillt Its own  railroads,. and to which tho railroads  belong.' Do'you think it best for the  government to own the railroads?"  "Yes. I do," said tho New Zealand  premier. "It is the only way in which  tho railroads should be owned and  operated. We bellevo fhe roads are  for the people, and we are managing  thorn in the interectn of tho poople,  and for the development of the country in that wav which will best help  all the peoplo. We are not trying  to make a profit out of them and as  our revenues Increase we steadily  reduce freight rates and passenger  fares. We are already giving an excursion rate of a penny a mile to  parties, and wo exnect to cut down  the fares right along. We give a reduced rate to workmen going to and  from work. We uso the trains to  bring out tho school children to and  from school free of charge and we  have excursion trains to take the  children now and then over the country and glvs them practical geographical lessons. We send out Euch  trains wtiich give excursions of 100  mile3 for 3G cents per ehlld. This is  just the extra cost.of running such  trains, and any suhool child can be  taken off on a vacation or on .an  instructive excursion at that rate at  the request of thp teacher.
