You may have great trials and perplex

trials, which though of less magnitude,
may bo hard for her to boar. A kind
word, a tender look, will do wonders in
uhuslug f i out hor brow all clouds of

keep a botllo of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in the house. It is tho best
and Is suro to bo needed boonororlator.

agement of a gold mine In this day Is
little short of an exact science applied
with rigid economy. With the old
wasteful and expensive methods It is
safe to say that half tho mlnea now
In operation would not be In existence.
Along with the Improved methods has
come a Rtpady fall In the price of every

A WINDOW MIRROR.

A transparent mirror was brought
from Germany to this country a tew
months ago by a New York Arm and ths
perplexing properties of the glass t-'
cited much curiosity. It was at once.
In demand for many purposes and hs
same firm Is now engaged In importing
it In large quantities. It Is still a hot-'
elty, und some Bcreens, made of this
glas3 hayo recently been piacea us
salo at one of the local stores. They
are probably the first to be vlowed la
this city. The coating Is placed on ons (
side of the glass just the same as the
silvering on the mirror nni.52.5yi
same properties of reflecting the rays ot i
light and color. Tho difference, how
ever, Is that when looked at from the
back the coating Is entirely transpar-i
ent. To one sitting Indoors the view
without is not obstructed In tho least, '
but a pedestrian peering Into the win-,
dow or doorway Is greeted by hl3 owa
reflection. The glass 1b used largely la
lieu ot screens where privacy is do-1
sired without obstruction of light from
the outside or barring the vision at
those Inside, ft was Introduced with'
effect first In a New York club window.
Behind It the chappies could Bit and
ogle tho girls and vlow the passing
throng without being themselves ob
served. Its use was also resorted to in
cafea, where It offered privacy to those
lounging inside, while the latter had
an undlaturhed view ot the street.
