(iothing <fc Henderson will also  build a hotel in Che same block. .M. K. W.  Hafhborne has purchased lot 10. block 11.  It is reported that H. K. Lemon will  shortly reopen his stores both at this  place and Nakusp.  Among the capitalists and^ mining men  who |laid New Denver and Three Forks a,  visit this week war- B. N. While, W. D.  .Middough. 1'. W. Scott, (J. .1. Atkins. A. F.  Humphreys. A. .1. Humphreys. J. H. Boss,  and W. B'. Fisher. Me^iv. Scott. Atkins,  and the Humphreys are interested in iron  mining in the peninsula of .Michigan.  The dispute over the ownership of the  New Denver townsite badly handicaps  the town, and were it settled the people  now here would have heart to do something: but. as it is. they are greatly discouraged.  The rumor that a railway will be built,  from Nakusp to the head of the ���lake this  summer is not generally believed: but if  the road is built, it, can onh have the  efleet of giving a groat impetus to the development, of mines in Slocan district that  art: so located that their output must be  shipped by a route other than the one by  way of Kaslo.  Work was commenced this week on .1.  1'Yed. Hume's store at Four Mile City. It  is understood that Mr. Hume intends  putting in a complete stock of general  merei.iandi.se,' to the- end that mines and  mine owners working, and operating on  Four-'Mile need not go farther than Four  Mile City I'or needed supplies.  Still Passable, and Should be Kept So.  The Kaslo road to the Slocan mines is  still so that stage and freight teams make  regular trips. Although the money contributed by the citizens to keep the road  in repair will .not- last more than three',  weeks longer. Ceorge W. Hughes, the  freighter, has assurances that he will not  lose anything if he keeps section gangs at  work until the government money is  available. Notwithstanding the claims of  rival routes, the one from Kaslo is the  only practicable one at present into the  Slocan mines, and every effort should be  made by both the people and the government to keep it in passable contljtioi'.  The construction of that road made Kaslo,  but at the same time it gave an impetus  tt) the mining industry that has re tilted  in good to the whole of Kootenay d.s rict.  Lost an Opportunity.  In not bringing in a redistribution bill,  premier Davie lost an opportunity to go  before the people on a winning issue. The  reason the bill wits not brought in was  from fear of defeat. The bill as prepared  gave the Mainland fifteen members and  the Island ten. Thisapportioiitnent would  necessarily cut down or wipe out altogether the representation of pocket boroughs like Cariboo, Lillooet, FsqiiiinaulC.  C.iwichnii. Comox, Cassia'', and Alberni.  Hat I the bill been brought in and defeated.  Mr. Davie could have gout; before the  people as a..man willing to give them fair  representation, and he would have made  a winning fight. But lit; hesitated, and  when he does go before Che people lit; will  be snowed under.  The Silver and Lead Mai-kets.  The past week records little fluctuation  ii the price of lead at any of the lead centers.' The metal is so evenly balanced  that tin; slightest change in existing conditions would quickly affect rates. At  inland centers, like Chicago, there has  been a fair business doing a tsfeady prices,  but at seaboard centers, like New York,  tin; market has been dull. Abroad, lead  rallies slowly, the advance from (he lowest price on record netting only about  $2.50 a ton. Quotations in London are on  a parity of $1.15 a hundred at New York.  The New York price, is $.'1.!)5. Chicago  quotations range between $8.S0 bid and  $8.00 asked. Silver is quoted in London  at *5S pence and in  New York  at N2.'1 cents  per ounce.     _      Making Haste Slo\vly.  H. F. Lemon and John Flliot returned  fioni Victoria on Tuesday. They report  milking little progress in the matter of incorporating the'town, more than that the  members of the government said they  would oiler no opposition. The list of  registered owners of property obtained  by Mr. Scions' from the books of the registry office did not (ally with the names  signed to the petition for incorporation,  hence the latter is of no use. Then the  list could not be compared with the assessment roll, for the roll of 1 ��!).'* had not  been received in Victoria. The whole  business will have lobe commenced anew.  .Ma hon properties have made shipments of  ore. but to continue shipping at a prolil, a  wagon road must be built. A trunk road  up the crook for a distance of live miles  would be utilized by every claim in the  district, as no one of them would be more  than two miles distant. The mountains,  in nearly every case, are steep, and the  ore could be run down by tramways to  the road at slight cost. Although no  money has been set apart I'or the purpose,  the government should look into the mat-  ttii- carefully before work is commenced  on trails and roads iu other sections not  nuar so promising as that of Four Mile.  The Grady party are doing assessment  work on several claims lower down the  mountain side than the Alpha, and as-  soon as the work is done, they intend  a^ain beginning operations on the Alpha.  A sett reify of supplies caused a. suspension of work on the Mountain Boomer,  the main tunnel on which is in !()') feet.  A crosscut tunnel, about sixty feet below  the main tunnel, is in fifty feet. A third  tunnel en the ledge has been started, and  it is iu about lifteen feet. The lodge is  between eight and twelve feet wide, and  while part of the ore can be sorted for  shipping, the bulk of it will have to be  cnncenl rated. Last winter, when ore  wiis shipped, half a ton was sent down to  flic, creek bottom in each rawhide, so it  will be seen that if a wagon road was  built, ore could be transported cheaply  from (he mine to Slocan lake'without expensive tramways even.  How a Prospector Lost $23,000.  The average resident of   Kaslo cannot  seo why men supposed   to  have average  sense should waste their time  in   Nelson,  and they are fond of saying. "Why. you  should   not   be wedded  to any town, but  gowith the crowd ii'you want to succeed."  Our of the averagj residents  of   Kaslo is  Ciitirlie Chambers, and he is fond of relating how hi' wits at  oue  lime  married to  Kafcle City, the pioneer town of the Cteur  d'Aleiie.country.    He was one of the first  that stampeded' into -thai.-country 'in  the  winter of 1SS3-\SI, and for a time.imagined  tlitit   Faglo   City   was  the  only   town   in  North America., simply because'he owned  a group of mines near the t'ow'u'.which he  valued at $20.()('().    For a   time he treated  everyone  who   approached   him   with   a  view of purchasing  his claims with  that  indifference common to men who are dead  eerlain they have a hidden bonanza.    But  as time rolled round F.igle City began to  drop   its  tail   feathers, and   other towns  like Murray began to put, on airs.    Charlie  then became just a trifle anxious  to sell,  and the more anxious he became the less  interest was   manifested   by mining men  for any kind   of  mining  property in the  vicinity of Fagk; City.    Finally, when he  was almost the so;(?-resident ol t  e town,  he traded   his .$20,000 bonanza  for a  log  cabin at Chloride, a mining town that had  sprung up on Feud d'Oreille lake.    On his  first trip to Chloride he sold L is cabin for  $1") in cash, and at night lost  the money  on it-l-nine hand in a  poker game..   Since  then   Mr.   Chambers says   he   was  never  married   to  any  town,   but Was  always  willing to let go at the lirst good  opportunity.    A Slow and Inadequate Transfer.  List fall it was given out that the Great  Northern would put iu a spur from its  main track at Bonner's Ferry to the  steamboat landing on Kootenay river, a  distil nee of a, mile or so. By putting in  the spur the wagon haul, which is both  slow and inadequate, would bedoneaway  with. But the spur was not built, and  now, when till the freight for the Kootenay Lake coui.tr>' is coming through that  way, strong language is being u.-^ed by  milling and business men because of the  delay iu forwarding merchandise and the  utter impossibility of shipping ore. One  of the largest operators in Slocan district  says he has several hundred tons of ore at  Kaslo, and would ship if could he gel if  hauled away from the steamboat landing  at Milliner's  Forrv:  but   he  c.'siinoi; get it  in effect, a forced loan from the people.  Fa per hills arc promises to pay, and when  the government issues them in exchange  i'or supplies or services it has actually  borrowed just so much from ihe man to  whom it pay* thc.ni. It, however, allows  him to pass this note iu payment of his  debts, so instead of being a loan from him  singly, if is a. loan from the whole people.  c" The ease with which the notes may be  issued has led many governments into  disastrous experiments in time of war and  stress, the promises being issued in such  profusion that, they become of no value.  The continental currency issued during  tho revolution by the American congress  and the assiguatsof the French revolution  may be instanced. Paper money depends  for its value on ( heability of tlieaitthority  that issues it to give value for it when  payment is demanded. When the issue of  the civil war was iu doubt the value of  the greenbacks issued by tiie United States  sunk to one-third their face value, due  partly to a lack of confidence in the gov-  ernine.nl. and (\ue still more to the certainty that payment of the notes must be  indefinitely postponed. |  Fven when the war closed and (here was  no longer doubt, of the government, the  currency was depreciated for thirteen  years. The government was in the position of the man known lo his neighborsas  "good but slow pay." His notes passata  discount. The government was known to  be good for the amount, and it was certain  that, it would be ready Co redeem the  notes some day, but that was not enough  I'or the man who wanted (oust; the money  right away. He thus passed the notes at  a discount.  The value of paper money thus depends  at any given amount on the promise of  the government to redeem it. If the  promise will be met when the notes are  presented tliey pass at their face value.  If there is a doubt on this point the notes  must pass at a discount, greater or less,  according to circumstances. If (here; is  no chance that they will ever be paid  they are worth nothing at all. As the  United States 'government has : stood,  ready since 1879 to redeem in 'gold-any  notes as soon as presented, its currency,  passes without question tit its face value.  The Routes by which the People Arrive.  About 800 people a week are arriving at  Nelson and .Kaslo, the latter place getting  <���'."> per cent of them. The Bonner's Ferry'  route is the favorite, owing to better  time being .made by way of it from Spokane than by way of North port. Passengers leaving Spokane tit (i o'clock in the  evening are landed at Kaslo in less than  twenty-hours via Bonner's .Ferry; by the  North]>ort route, they leave Spokane at.7  o'clock in the morning and are landed in  Nelson tit 5 o'clock in the afternoon of the  second day. It is understood that when the  stage of water- will.-permit boats running  up Co Ivobson, that tiie steamer Columbia  will make daily trips, between. Northport  and Bobson, and passengers leaving Spokane in the morning will be landed in  Nelson in the evening���in thirteen hours,  and in .'Kaslo in sixteen hours���which will  be several-hours better than can possibly  be done by way of the Bonner's Ferry  route. The new steamer State of Idaho  will be running in about two weeks, and  she is advertised to leave Bonner's Ferry  daily for Kaslo. If she makes a round  trip every-flay between Bonner's Ferry  and Kaslo she wili not have much time.to  linger at way landings and wood piles, to  say nothing of the time required to load  and unload freight.  crown hinds (not being an Indian settlement) not exceeding three hundred and  twenty acres in extent in that port ion of  the province situated to the northward  and eastward of the Cascade or Coasl  Mange of mountains, and oue hundred  and sixty acres in extent iu tho rest of (ho  province : Provided, that such right shall  not be hold to exleud to any of the aborigines of this continent, except to such as  shall ha vo obtained permission in writing  to so record by a special order of the lieu-  toiinnf-governor in council.

The Canadian Pacific people, seeing that  rivals \ve\-e likely to  obtain   the bulk   of  the  business originating' iu   the   mining  camps of Southern   Kootenay, have concluded to take prompt action  to retain at  least a share of the traffic.    To that end  they have concluded   Co  build  a  branch  from h'evelstokc south to the L'pperArrow  lake, and another branch from Nakusp in  to the head of Slocan lake.    Work will be  commenced   on   both   branches   within a,  month.    While giving out that  they did  not krow what they intended doing, they  WL-i-c quietly at work securing legislation  that would enable them  to raise the necessary funds.    On the adjournment of the   .  Dominion parliament, an order-iii-coiuicil  was   passed  by the government granting  the Nakusp  iv. Slocan   Hailway Company  a cash subsidy of $:*200  lo   the  mile.    A  like  subsidy had   been  refused  all other  railway    companies    applying    therefor,  which only goes to show thai the Canadian  Pacific (the  power behind the Nakusp A;  Slocan company)gets whatever if asks for  from    the    Dominion   government.     The  next move was to get something substantial  from  (lie province of British Columbia.    The government, was .sounded as  to  whether  or   not   it would   introduce n\id  secure the passage of a bill in the legislative assemuly guaranteeing  the interest  on   bonds  sufficient,  to   pay for  the const ruction   of  the road.    The government  took the matter under consideration, ar.d  finally concluded  tt) act.  and   the  bill   is  now  before   the assembly.    That   it will  pass is not for a moment doubted, for its  only opponents are the promoters  of the  Kaslo A: Slocan railway.  The action that- will be taken by the  province is l lit; same as was taken when  aid was given to tin; Shuswap _: Okana-  gon Bail way Company, that, is, the  province guarantees I per cent interest "on  construction bonds, to run twenty-five  years, the railroad company turning over  the cash subsidy received from the Dominion as security for the guarantee.  This action can only be criticized as being unfair to other companies willing to  build railways in this section, as it enables tlieeoinpnny securing the guarantee  to raise money at a low rate of interest:,  thus allowing t hem to operate their road  at a less cost than competing roads not  favored with government endorsement.  But the Canadian Pacific owns. Canada,,.  including British Columbia.  However, the building of these branch  roads cmu only have a good effect. The  mining industry will bestiniulatcd. which  means much-for uot only this section, but  for the whole of' British Columbia. The  'mine owners of the Slocan and Lardo districts will not he compelled to pay exorbitant charges I'or transporting the output  of their.m.ines to t he smellers, and business men will be able to get in supplies at a-  much lower 'rate than at present.. The  effect the building -of these branches will  have on established towns is mere guesswork. If one loses prestige, the prestige  lost will be merely transferred to 'another,  the district at large not being the loser1.  ��� Their building means that the Kaslo <Sc  Slocan charier must pass into the hands  of a rival of the Canadian Pacilic. for no  short m ilway opera ted by a- local company  can compete with a route that is owned  or controlled entirely by one company.  This is shown by the rates charged from  Spokane to Nelson. By the Crent Northern or Bonner's Ferry route the rate is  less than one-half that charged by the  Spokane-Nort hern or Kohsou route. "The  former road makes the rale to suil iiself,  for it practically is independent of connect ing lines, the Kootenay river and  lake being free for nil steamboats. Tin;  hitler route is not independent, and can  make no rale that is not agreed to by not-  only ii si can i boa I line t ha I has no competitors bill by aiiot her railway that is  operated solely in the interest, of  a road unfriendly (<> the Spokane  A- Northern. Kit her the deal Northern or the Spokane A' Northern must  build the Kaslo road, or the bulk of the  trallicof Slocan (list rid will be handled  by tin; Canadian Pacilic. a road that is as  progressive as any in America.  The cont racl for t he const rue I ion of t he  Nelson A: Fort Sheppanl has been a warded  to Peter Larson of Helena. Montana. Mr.  L-irson is an old-time contractor, having  built port ions of hot 11 t he Nor I hern Pacilic  and t lie ('rent Noli hern. Work is to commence immediately a I hot h cuds, and I he  mail is to be completed by October 1st.  The approximate amount of the contract  is SNOO.dOO. and 20(10 men will probably be  employed.  Tenders for t he building of t he Nakusp  road will be called for as soon as the de-  sired-l'or legislation is passed, which will  be in ten days. Tenders will not be  called for on I lie branch from Bevcl-  stoke. as the work will be undertaken by  I he railroad company itself.  Lumber Quotations.

The refusal of the Davie government to
bring down  a   redistribution   bill,   after
promising i<> do so. will bt;   pronounced a
"sharp"    political   nuive   liy   politicians:
but   i.s   it   not   really  a   piece of   perfidy:'
Were   business   or   professional    men   of
slanding   to act  in   a   like  manner, they
would   bo  .shunned   by the people among
whom they do business.    The Basic government pledged  itself, at  the beginning
of   ihe  session, to redistribute  the  membership of I lit! It'gisla I ive assembly so t hat-
all sections of I he province would he fairly
reprosenled.    The promi>e was kept dangling   before   the   members   until   the   one
measure that the government had set its
hearten passing was passed, when it was
jerked out of sight.
The people of British Columbia need
look I'or no wise. just, or honest legislation
as long as the present gang are in control.
'While several of the members of the government parly a re men of good in ten I ions,
t lie leatleis of l he party are self-seeking
aud utterly unscrupulous, it is within
the power of the people to rid themselves
of these peilidious leaders, if only they
but -.'organize for the next election and
make a light at. the ballot box for principles, not for individuals and appropriations.	
The people, who.live, at -.Bonner's Ferry,
■although they live and  thrive .because of
their closeness lo this portion of the British   possessions,   hate  everything   that is
British,  simply   because   they   had   that
hatred  bred   and   born   in   them.    They
harshly criticize   the character, manners,
and customs of our people, and utter censorious aiid   bitter -'..speeches  against the
"laws of the country.    This is not only unjust,   but   itniieighborly.    The   people'of
British"Columbia, as  a  whole, are liospi1
table,  liberal-minded, and   not exclusive.
The citizen of the Creat 'Republic receives
11s coi dial a welcome, when   in  our midst,
as docs the subject of "Creat Britain from
the mother land  or from a di-aunt province  or colony.     When   such citizen   engages iu business among us, his life and
his   property  interests   receive   the same
protection   as  do   those   of   the   subject.
What more could  he done':'    What more
should be expected?'   But. then, the people
of  Bonner's   Ferry are  probably not fair
representatives of the peopled!" tho I'nited
States, and no attention should be paid to
their ill-natured vaporings.
Mt'CH is said and written about the
power of the press and the inlluence of
I lie saloon iu elections. A fair test of
their respective power and influence was
made in Chicago on Ihe llh instant. In
ihe election for city officers, tun; of t he
candidates for mayor was supported by
every newspaper except one in the city,
aud the ot her' candidate was supported
liy'.i.") per cent of the saloon men. The
candidate who had I he saloon inlluence at
his back was triumphant iv elected. When j
it. iss.M.ed IIim. Car.er Harrison is the j jftp^u^ jjRYDEN &
name   ol   lb'-  suet-ess! ul   candidate,   it   is;
needless to say I ha t no greater demagogue i   JJflQhIOpi P1BCF
was  ever, elected' to oflice.      During the !'/«-'/      > I s»
World's   Fair   Chicago   will    be   a   "wide j  DftP'SQ/T^flKEFi'S
open" city, run not in  ihe  interest   of its j        V^   ,•'   «/    \     \J

of its (piasi-eriiiiin.-ils.
Pacilic gels into the country over the
Coi-bin road. The Croat. .Northern and
Canadian Pacilic art; not competitors, for
the simple reason that both roads are
practically owned by the same men.
Tin-: government is not likely lo expend
a dollar on the streets of Nelson I his year,
mid but little aid need be expected from

Observation has convinced me that the  feminine llirt may be classed as belontriii-  lo the intellectual or the physical type.  The lirst is more uncommon and much  more (o be feared: the second is more  general, and her victims are among the  thousands. Uut they recover, while Ihe  victim of the lirst type is never tpiiLe the  same as he was before the battle. The  greal place to see the physical flirt is ii.  the dining-room of a large hotel. Drop-in  to have your dinner, anil your eyes light  on a woman wild 'holds you spell-bound;  tin; curve of her neck is perfection, the  roundness of her waist is a delight, and  . the softness of her looks fascinate you.  She gels up. walks across the room, anil  the perfectly feminine and almost musical  swaying of her hips, convinces you thai-  she is exquisitely formed. As yoiigazeat  her you arc-almost ashamed. I i' you could  you'would blush: as it is. you feel guilty.  Von manage to become acquainted with  her. The rings on her lingers, the girdle  about her waist, the bracelets on her  wrists, the-slippers on her feet, all tantalize you by saying: "Don t 'you wish  you were ' in ' my placer" Y'ou go  away from her intoxicated. "The next  day you meet her again. She asks some  simple service from you; you wish she  would ask you I'or your life.  That night you meet her at a dance: she  wears a rose-colored frock and says to you  that she chose it because she heart I you  say you liked the color. .She sits out the  roiilid dances with you and tells you,  "Now she can't leu another man put his  arm around her." and you are sure she is  a u'otltless. The l you give a dinner in her  honor, aud concealed in a huge bouipietof  roses is a ruby ring; you are horribly  afraid she won't- take it. but she picks il.  up and murmurs how glad she is thai, you  put in a ring that was pretty and not real,  for she can accept it as a joke, and you are  charmed with her cleverness. Then you  become her slave: you send her roses and  sweets and jewels, and you pay For dinners and theatre boxes, and anything that  will give her pleasure.  One morning you wake up and you realize the only side of you th.-t this woman  has pleased istlie physical one: thatsheis  as greedy as a parrot and about as senseless: that she knows how charming are  the curves of her lig.irc. ami she knows  perfectly well how to display them to you.  You swear a little bit at ynurse.i.nud then  vou say. "(hind-bye." Hut you are not  'much hurt. That sort of a woman has  made scratches, not heart wounds, aud  I'or that reason one ought to be thankful  that her number is many.  Then 'you meet the other woman the  intellectual llirt. Y'ou lunch one day with  an awfully pretty woman, and she has  witli her a' pleasant-facet I gin who is her  dearest friend. Yen enjoy eating the  luncheon and looking at tin; pretty  woman. In a vague way you remember  the other girl as a pleasant one: but. of  course, you know such a lot of pleasant  women.' The next day the pretty woman  tells you that after you went away her  friend said: " I can't' tell why that man  attracts me. but I am sure lie is a man  that thinks." And you lh nk you do.  Poor moth ! You make up your mind  that's a sensible girl, ami you want to  meet her again. S'ou do, ami you find  curiously enough, that she thoroughly iiu-  derstaiids you; that she appreciates your  great cleverness, understands your ambitions and comprehends just what you  ought to be. In a word, she is absolutely  svnipat hetic. She has your history at  the tips of her lingers, anil she understands your weaknesses as a doctor does  the diseases of his patients, and she caters  to each one of them.  A fter you nave known her I'or awhile  yon really begin to think.    She sayssome-  illi  ug that makes you conclude that you  are making a clever woman oi  her.   lor r.  never dawned on  you   that  she was that  before she met  you.    Then   you  find out  that she is a woman of whom   you   never  tire, and suddenly, ami horribly, it dawns  upon   vim   that   there are other men who  think the same.    Then you long to be the  oniy one.     if she  concludes   the game is  worth the candle slit; gives you that position.    If not. you are only one among (he  many.    If   she   docs,  she   will   piobably  make  you   happy: she will   never   bring  any discredit  upon  your  name, but you  wiii never be the only one, for  there wilt  dways be   men   around   her.    .Men   with  whom she- has a certain   intellectual sympathy.    If she does not become your wife  :hc wili take something  out   of  your iife  .vliicli   is   never   replaced.    The  physical  dirt can never do this, but the intellectual  tine can.    if  you, have   offended her she  .-an   make  you  feel  your own  littleness  until you wish  you might disappear, and  even   if she  refuses your love with-kindness there is a sore spot in your heart and  an everlasting longing for  the woman of  whom your sister says:    "I wonder what  men see in her; she is always well dressed,  but she is really nothing but a thoroughly  pleasant woman!"   And you look at your  sister  and wonder  if she  knows what a  P'lwer that is.    These are  the  black and  White types of flirts, but there are innumerable shades in between.  One of the most interesting is the reliant  one. She is usually a widow. Not a tall,  majestic one. but rather undersized. Anil  a little widow is a .dangerous thing. She  relies on every man slit; comes near: she  fcel is every man thatnien havealways been  good to her. and she can't help but believe  in them. 1 don't think there is a. man in  the world so wicked as to shatter this belief. .She always tells the truth" because  she says men understand, and they are so  delightfully simple and when she tells the  particularly outrageous truth they are  convinced she is lying. Although she is a  widow, she is uofc'funerenl. She is fond of  saying that dear Charlie believed the liv-  ingshould be considered and not the dead;  and little -Mrs. Crape is considering the  living with a feminine vengeance. All  is lish that comes to her net. but she particularly likes to rely on elderly men���  men who are ice to most women. She  has a pleasant way of speaking of Charlie,  as if he were likely to walk in at any  time, and she makes her men friends  feel quite at ease by assuring them  how much Charlie would have liked  them. She shows just a little bit of her  neck������just enough to make you wish to  see more, and if somebody suggests that  she should wear a low bodice she gives a  plaintive sigh aud says: "Oh. I wi 1 leave  thai; I'or young girls nowadays: though J  will confess to you that I should like to  show the dimples in my shoulders!" And  all the barbarian in you wakes up. anil  you feel like tearing from her the horrid  cloth that hides these dimples from your  eye.-.    Somebody said a-scarlet hitter I).  meaning Dangerous���should be put on  the breast of the little widow: but no one  would object to this more than her victims.  The motherly flirt is dangerous, so is  the baby one. The independent flirt is  usually only attrai tive to boys. Do I object tii llir'tation? Not if it is properly  conducted. It is the legitimate war of  woman upon man. Woman's weapon is a  thorn, and the shroud for each vit-i.ini is a  rose leaf. The woman who can flirt well  is an artist, but in the noble army of  coquettes the:sign should be: "No amateurs need apply."  The Process Man.  The process man is much less numerous  than he used lo be. Not many years ago  every cam]) of low grade or refractory  ores'used to receive continual encouragement from the ingenious and engaging  visiting individual who had a process  cheap and simple by which nil the silver  and gold could be exfr.ictod from the discouraging ores at rates which left a profit  to the owners. Now this person is seldom  seen. He is in scarcely more favor than  the 'divining-rod num. The reason is  simply because his record is one of almost  Is the  Priest  More  Powei-iul  Than  tiie   Civil  OlHciai.  T. \V. Itussoll. a member of the Jiritish  parliament", has returned to I-Cnglnnd full  of the idea that he has discovered iu Canada an object lesson which will stand him  in good steatl   in  slaying   any scheme of  home  rule.     He publishes  his a.-ticie iu  the Fortnightly under the title of ������American Side-ljights Upon Home Kule." After  pointing out the mischief of  Irish ride in  the large cities  of  the   I'nited States, he  comes   to   his subject proper, that of the  Irish   in   Camilla,    "here,   however, is a  province under the   British   Hag with the  identical   conditions   of   Irish   lite.    The  unionist contention   is that an  Irish parliament would be controlled by the Woman  Catholic church.    This is beyond all question the case in Quebec.    Cardinal Tasch-  ereau   is   iuliiu'lely more  powerful in his  palace than Mr. Chapleau can  pretend to  be at'Government house, infinitely more  powerful than Mr. Taillon and his cabinet.  And  if after  long  years,  as   the net result of this dual form of government"-,  we  find corruption in high places, "bopdling"  reduced to a science, the .provincial deut  rolling  up, the exchequer empty, education little short of a farce, the .British element   being .squeezed  out,  a stationary  population outside the towns, the Kngash-  speaking people paying five-sixths of the  taxation with no control over the government, and  a church, rich, arrogant and  powerful in the midst of a poor people���  what, 1 ask, iu the face of all this, are we  to say?  "Surely one Quebec is enough for the  nineteenth century. Why run the risk of  establishing another in Ireland? The object lesstni is plain enough.  "In Canada, which lias eight' parliaments for a 'population of live millions,  the people.are rapidly coming to the eon-,  elusion that they can have too much  of an expensive luxury. Jn LS07,  and but for Quebec, the union would  have been legislative and not federal.  The interest of Quebec prevailed. The  idea of the church in Quebecsurrenilering  its privileges to join in a legislative union  with oue parliament.could not be entertained, and the federal, system was  adopted. Why should Ulster be coerced  into an arrangement from which Quebec  was saved? Or what would be said if it  were proposed to puicc Protestant Ontario  under a big Roman Catholic Quebec?  What is this, after all, but' the Ulster  problem? Already the .Maritime Provinces are. talking of amalgamating their  three legislatures. In other provinces it-  is proposed toabolish the second chamber;  and the feeling gains ground that the  federal system involves too many ridiculous and costly assemblies. But that  can be said of the Canadian confederation  which cannot be said of the Irish proposals. It was entered into with the loyal  ami hearty acquiescence of the whole people. If there had been a hostile minority,  such as exists in Ireland, confederation  would have been an impossibility.  The Bell Telephone Patents.  Although Bell's original patent for an  electrical telephone has expired, telephones cannot yet be made in the United  States without infringing on patents held  by the Bell Telephone Company. Bell's  original patent was granted I'or 17 years,  dated March 7. IS7<i. and in the fifth  clause he claims "The method of. and apparatus for. transmitting vocal and other  sounds telegraphically, as herein described, by causing undulations, similar in  form to tilt; vibrations of the air accompanying the said vocal or other sound,  substantially as set forth." This claim  was held by the supreme courts of the  United States to cover any kind of telephonic apparatus in which an iindulntory  electrical current was used. This patent  expired March 7th, INU.'L Bell's second  patent, dated January ."jOth, 1X77, covers  the cons! ruction of the well-known Bed  instrument and Ihe parts thereof. This  patent runs i'or seventeen years from Ms  dale and will expire January MOl.h. IS!)I.  Not until I hat dale wiil the public be free  Lo make use of Bell's invention. Oilier  important patents are held by the American Bell Telephone Company which have  long terms to run.  GEMS   OF   THOUGHT.  The flame of the fagot does not enlighten  the mind.  A good man cares not for the abuse of  bad men.  To err is human, but only a fool will  persist in error.  How can death be an evil, as it is never  felt when it is death?  I believe neither in chance nor in'miracle but only in phenomena regulated by  laws.  I am quite at my case with a true man'.  ��� one who has in his heart and his head  the love of the human race.  The most philosophical desire is, that  life, should consist in a succession of pleasing emotions, and death be considered an  event neither (o be coveted nor feared.  I know of many systems of religion esteemed heathenish whose precepts (ill the  reader with shame, and provoke him to  new endeavors, though it be to the performance of rites merely.  I once asked a distinguished judge of  New York what he had learned by sitting  thirty years upon the bench. He answered  promptly, "The difficulty of arriving at  truth through human testimony."  Is theie any oue niaxiin by which a man  may leg late his whole life? It is simply  to act towards others as we would desire  they should act toward us. We need but  I his rule alone; it is the foundation of all  our duties.  No educated man who has acquired but  the most superficial kno-wledge of nature,  stiil less a man proficient in science, can  at this day believe iu a miracle or in the  possibility of anything happening in opposition to the recognized laws of nature.  Wet the Lips and Avoid Disease.  "This is a habit that I have forced myself into until now I ilo it unconsciously  even at my own table." said the doctor, as  he raised his glass of port and drank it.  1 looked at him to see what he meant  by the habit, but strive as I might J  couldn'tsee the indications of any "habit."  So I asked:  "What habit?"  "Why, look," lie replied. "I always  moisten  my lips  before  I drink.    It is a  i-S5  HOTEL ]Q  .-*���- ��._.
