to muster in uniform and bring their

Regretful resolutions were passed
and various committees appointed,
among others, a committee of one
was appointed to call on a minister

ling from an Eastern theological semi-
nary, and as yet nnacquaiuted with
tLe ways of the mines. The commit
tee-man, Scotty" Briggs, made his
Baing admitted.-to his presence, he
sat down before the clergyman, plac
ed his fire hat on an unfinished
manuscript sermon under the minis-

kerchief, wiped his brow, and- heaved
sigh of dismal irapressivencss ex
planalory of his business. lie choked
and even shed tear, Lut with antfl.irt
be mastered his voice, and said, in
lugubrious tones :
"Are you the duck that runs the
gospel-mill next door? '
"I am the pardon ma. I believe I
do not understand ?''
With another sigU a i l a half sub.
Why, you s?e we are in a Lit of
trouble, and the boys thought may
be you'd give as a lift, it we'd tackle

"I am the shepherd in charge of
the flock whose told is next door."
''The rpirituai a Ivuer of tuo little

Scotty scratched his head, reflected
moment, and then said :
"You rather hold over me, pard
reckon I can't call thu Inn l. Ante
and pass the buck.''
"IIow ? I beg your pardon. TV hat
did I understand you to aay ?"
Well, you've rather got the bulge
on me. Or maybe we've both got tbe
bulge, somehow. You don't smoke
me and I don t smoke you. 1 ou see,
one of the boys has passed in his
checks, and we want to give him a
good send-cft, and so the Hung I am
now on it to rout out somebody to
erk a little chin-music for us, and
waltz him through handsome.''
"My fne&w 1 seem to grow more
and more bewildered. Your observa
tion are wholly incomprehensible to
me. Cannot you simplify them some
way ? At fir6t I thought perhaps I
understood you, but now I grope.
Would it not expedite matters if you
restricted yourself to categorical
statements of fact unincumbered with
obstructinf accumulations of meta
phor and allegory ?"
Another pause, an I more retneuon.
Then Scotty said :

"You've raised me out, pard.''
"I still fail to catch your meaning."
"Why, that last lead of yourn is too
many for me tbat s tbe idea, l
can't neither trump nor follow suit.''
The clergyman sank back in his
chair perplexed. Scot'y leaned his
head on his band, and gave himself
np to reflection. i
Presently bis face came up, sorrow
ful, but confident.
"I've got it now, so s you cavy,r
said he. "What we want i3 a gospel

"A what r"
"Gospel sharp, parson.''
"Oh ! Why didn't you say so bo-

He never could aland it to ace things

warn't the man to go browsing around

He warn't a Catholic ; but it didn't

or melted. This susceptibility had
been the great hinderance to their
use. Some half dozen inventors on
this and the other side ot the Atlantic
bad been experimenting upon this
difficulty for several yeais. Charles
Goodyear at last stumbled upon the
secret. Over his little stove, in an
attic chamber oi an indifferent house
in New Haven, he had melted the
gum in a kettle slimed with brim
stone. It showed no chanse in cool
ing. Beyond alteration In form, the
material appeared the same. It was
elastic, dark in color, odorous as at
first, tasteless, yielding to the touch,
and unaltered in specific gravity.
Apparently, it had suffered no alter

The scene of the apprehended dis

' An interview with Mr. George F.
Bagley, of Ibis city, who ia largely
interested in the Calumet ahd Hecla,
has elicited facts of interest Mr.
Bagley thinks that the crisis ia not
in reality so grave as the dispatch
might seem to Indicate. The. mine
has telegraphio communication both
with Detroit and Boston, the latter
city containing the chief offices of the
company -Yet not a word of any seri
ous difficulty has reached Mr. Bagley
in any way, thongb, had any occurred
he thinks that he would, certainly have
received information of it from some
source. For some little time the mi
ners at this point and also those con
nected with the other copper produ
cing mines of Lake Superior have ex
pressed dissatisfaction with the wages
they were receiving and intimated
that, as the mines are now flourishing,
they thought they should receive
greater pay. An advance has been ar
ranged for by the company, who have
also devised a plan by which the men
were to receive a per centage of the
profits made by the company over a
certain amount. Whether these facta
have all been made known to the men,
Mr. Bagley is unable to aay, bnt from
his knowledge ot the history of previ
ous disturbances among the miners in
years past, he does not believe that
any violence bas been committed or
that property will be destroyed. Ot
course, however, it is possible that
under strong excitement the men may
do mischief. It is very much to be
hoped that Mr. Bagley's convictions
may prove to be correct. The public
will anxiously await the receipt of fur
ther intelligence from the scene of
