Love of the Englishman For a Titled
The presence of a personal sovereign
is the outward and visible sign that
caste is still supreme in the British em
pire. The external abuses of the feudal
system have been abolished in Great
Britain, one by one, until those that
still linger are almost harmless, but
the inner spirit survives to this late
day, and even now its manifestations
are abumdant in l:ost. every part of
the social strur-ture of th'e British Isles.
There is sti1i alie the fiction that the
king rrules and that i army of the
enire is his majesty's army. There Is
still a willing acceptance of the titled
:istocracy and also of an upper house,
the vast majority of whose members
sit there by the right of birth only,
without regard to their individual
No doubt the British people could
change these things speedily and with
out violence if they really desired to
get rid of this inheritance from feudal
Ism. But they have not got rid of it,
and this is evidence enough that they
do not wish to do so.
The British see no reason to abolish
a state of affais which the American
people look at with amazed wonder as
a survival of the dark ages. A native
American finds it wholly impossible to
understand the mental attitude of a
certain man of letters in London, who
justified his ingrained toryism by the
assertion that he simply would not be
ruled by his equals.-Reader,
THE BUTTE HILL.
Where Fortunem Were 3Made and
Spent In a Day.
Wrhen Daly had acquired the proper
ties surrounding the Anaconda, he
opened up the Butte hill. One must
have a vivid imagination to picture to
himself the growth of Butte from that
time on during Marcus Daly's life.
Fortunes were made and spent in a
day. An army of men descended into
the mines daily to strip them of their
treasure, huge forests were despoiled
of their timber to stull and shore up
the excavations and protect the earth
above, for these copper veins are often
100 feet wide. Immense smokestacks
began to vomit their clouds of smudge
from scores of furnaces scattered over
the hill; the moan and clank of huge
pumps could be heard In the depths
forcing the water to .the surface; the
pound of hammers and the steady Im
pact of drills sounded everywhere,
while the earth trembled and bellowed
with distant underground explosions.
Great hollows, like cathedral naves,
were scooped out, where the treasure
had lain in the rock ribbed earth.
Horses and mules were blindfolded
and lowered into the mines-where
their hides, like the gray beards of the
old miners, soon took on the greenish
color of the copper which saturates ev
erything below the surface. The Butte
hill soci became a vertiable under
ground city.-C. P. Connolly in Mc
sweetest of All.
Outlate-I tell you, I enjoyed the
sleep I got this morning. Fogey--Sci
