Our world with nil its brightness

A little hud of celestial beauty
had gladdened a mother's heart.
She watched Its expansion, gloried
in its increasing loveliness, and rev
eled In a luxury of joy too rich,
too perfect for earth. The Angel of
Death wa.s sent to fold the opening
leaves of the little bud; and though
commissioned to perform his woric
gently, the mother's heart was
wrung with anguish. ho refused
to be comforted, until gentle whis
perings were heard, telling her
that her treasure was transplanted
to u richer soil and purer atmos
phere. And when she know that,
under fostering care of the Sa

The halo of light around that

author of the Lord's .Prayer. With
thought elavated to "Jlim who

"the bread of God which comelln

one, you do not yet know half the
dangers that encircle the

The proceedings are the out
growth of the unsettled condition
of price Jn machine mining. This
question ban come to the surface
several times this season, and on
two occasions operators wero in
vited to send a committee to meet
a committee from the miners to
discuss and try to settle the price to
bo paid for machine mining, but
nothing was accomplished, for the
reason the operators failed to send
a committee. From one who was
present last Monday, we learn the
meeting was called for tho purpose
of securing concerted action on tho
part of machine miners, in demand
ing the ndvanco asked for, other
places. The meetingT was called
at Bessemer "Y" and was well at
tended, some four or live hundred
being present. After the question
at issue hud been discussed for
some time, a motion was made to
ask Brook's machine miners at
Snako Hollow to meet with them
and discuss the question. On arri
val at Snake Hollow they were re
fubed permission to enter the mine,
and ordered off the premises. They
withdrew to the public highway,
and were shortly joined by Brooks'
miners and the meeting again
called to order, and its purposes
statetl. After tho question was
fully .stated to the men they took
the matter under advisement and
decided to demand the advance.
It is to be regretted that this, or
any other .similar question could
not be satisfactorily adjusted with
out a collision. No one regrets thi
state of affairs more than ourselves.
Tho Industries of the valley are M
prostrated, it is painful to witnebs
any stoppage, and our advice to all
parties is to exhaust all efforts at
conciliation before other measures
are resorted to. Valley Begister,

fow weeks ago, jumped direct from
tho floor on one of the brushes and
was thrown back to the ground. Ho
lay motionless, apparently and cer

was sent with a shovel to gather it

those out late, thus saving other

penny saved was worth two earned.
There Would bo fewer paupers If his

not tho careless .spendthrift.

If Mr. Bramhlebush wants others to

Mr. Betters, trees yield sevqral gal

they are in no danger of btarvation
there; also free from vermin, etc.,
which looks encouraging. Many

much. Society will expand and aid

canary bird "Ned" gavo up tho
ghost one day last week at tho ripe

would have been 21. Tho bird has
always been tho property of Mr.
Harlow, and tho genflomnn can
glvo many anecdotes of the won
derful sagacity of the pet. "Ned"
annually accompanied Mr. Harlow
to tho sea-shore, and tho whiff of

may account for tho great ago
which ho reached.
