i than eight hours are   the   dearest  it
the end.    They are   usually inferior,
unskilled miners, who, holding themselves cheap   nre   despised   both   by
their employers and their   associates.
The real reason   for   the   unsatisfactory condition of tbe mining industry in Kootenay during the past few
year's, has been duo more to mismanage
merit than to,  what he  calls, "hasty
and indisciiiiiirittte legislation".    Men
with   a   book-learned smattering of
mining terms but wholly without any
practical experience, h-ive been place..
in charge of properties at large salaries, and when no dividends were forthcoming- the -shareholders l.ecamfl dissatisfied and blauted the country  and
the mining laws.   Um'er such management the richest mine in  jMnericri
would not pay dividends.   Wherever
mines havo been properly bandied by
expericned men*, they havo almost invariably proved it sUccoss, and  yielded luti.factory returns.

'.
I
'11 (■ itrilrc was ended. Tho tall
chimneys of the great iron plant of
McA—Bros.' once more belched forth
volumes of smoke thai rose ukywai-d in
black columns, changing,' aiion, into
fantastic i-hapcs aud sbadca. Here
nnd there groups of employees were
hurrying towards the works,, dinner
\ «il in hand, all glad to return to their
■positions which had been abandoned
for months,
Mrs. Mason hummed softly snatches
of favorite songs as  she  wont   about
her household duties.    Ifer   husband
was also returning to work this morning.    Their last dulling .had, long since,
gone for tne bare necessities, and their
credit at the grocer's was being sorely
tried.    Little  Mamie was  better too
this morning and the poor   mother's
heart   beat high    with   hope   ns  she
liastily prepared her customary breakfast from the meagre supply.
■i       Little Mamie was not a particularly'.!
beautiful child, but  such  a  thoughtful, mature little face on i tot of six
was   seldom  seen.    Her   large clear
huxel eyes and solemn visage reminded
■iiiu of the Madonna of Rubens.   Little
Mamie was not  hungry this morning.
She ate sparingly of the buttered toast
but eagerly drank the "milk  in  which
it dilated and then asked for her dolly.
Alio was a raro hothouse  llowei",  and
like all bucIi, required much cure, The
Doctor's   instructions to   supply   her
with nourishing foods and  fruit  was
followed as far as possible, but during
lhe past few weeks, it became more and
more diflicult, as their little remaining credit had to   be   used   sparingly.
And Jack Mason?—Mr. Mason like
many others possessed peculiar   ideas
on |some things.    He was a   devoted
husband n*yid i.iolizod his only daughter.    Ur was a skilful mechanic, held
in high esteem by his employes-faith-
ful and   accurate in the delicate  worjj
assigned ;o him, and yet   he had two
faults which ,corabined, wore to wreck
his life.    He was very   proud   of his
ability to  "hoe his own row'1,   as   he
called it, and   would   stand dictation
front no person.    Even his wifo knew
better than to  attempt   anything of
lho kind,   When he drank too much
liquor for his own good, as he occasionally did, he was wunt to  excuse the
fault by' saying that it was only mice
in a while aud lie would  promise  not
to allow it to occur again, but alas fur
such promises.   They were no differ-
erent fron those  made  many,   many
times    hy   many  different    people,
and will continue to be Mode indefinably.   This latter fault had not been
overlooked by the  great   iron   merchant, by any meatts.    It w*w seldom
indeed that he   overlooked  anything
whore the interests   of   tho company
were concerned, but he bad hoped the
matter would bs remedied without his
personal remonstrance, as the foreman
had promised to sue that it was stopped.
Jack was in Ills working chillies ai
tl.e great whistle signalled tile beginning pf tlio diiy's toil au.l On his way to
his old place in the shop when ho met,
tiie foreman. (loud morning, Jack, I
am glad to sen yon back at your olii
pltcu again. W.i started Up ln time for

straight to the  point of   any  ijuuntion

was uot an unkind one but had   "business" indelibly stamped   in  every   lineament-
Jack made no comment, but wondered vaguely what ll.e summons n.eaut.
de even found himself indulging lu
visious ot the position of foreman uud
wondering what the salary amounted to
He then surutiui.cl some of the plans

called sharply,
Mr. Mason, begun the business man.
I sent for you this morning tu ...ive n
short private conversation with you relative to the position you huve held
with us in tbe past. With a very few
exceptions, all of our old employees are
returning to work, and I shall be glad
to aiiow that you aro Included in the
number, but your doing so implies a
condition. The Coiidiliun, continued
Mr. mcA. Is that you give me your
word that, beginning in-day and
as long as yolr are an employee of this
company, you will abstain entirely from
intoxicating liquor of any kind.
