The row in the New Hampshire re
publican state convention. Bays the
St. Louis Republic, gives an insight
into what the policy of the republi
cans will be during the approaching
canvass. Indenniteness, a harking
back to dead issues and a glossing
over of the real issues will be the
keynote of republican platforms.
Many things indicate that the people
during the next canvass will demand
dehniteness, clearness and directness
in the platforms of the parties and
they will properly interpret the ab
sence of these qualities as double
dealing. Took Ample Precautions.
The imperialist administration was
wise, according to its day and genera
tion, in raising the volunteer army for
the Philippines from the country at
large instead of from states, as volun
teer regiments have heretofore been
enlisted. Had the present army in tbe
Philippines been recruited by compa
nies and regiments from certain terri
tories, the famuies ana friends 01
these boys would raise such a howl
over the conduct of the war that no
end of trouble would be created for
the administration. Our soldiers are
recruited at large and from so large a
territory thnt very few are found in
any one regiment from the same lo
cality. Their friends and families are
wide apart and cannot act in concert,
and while they may protest individu
ally they can accomplish nothing.
The boys, therefore, must take what
comes without redress. They are sol
diers of the emperor,1' not of are
public composed of sovereign states.

please, but they will have to stay

One of the queerest industries has
grown up on the Uackensack meadows,
an otherwise apparently useless bog
upon which it is unsafe for man or
beast to venture- In tn summer cer
tain parts of the meadows are covered
with a dense growth of cattails. They
grow particularly rank and large.
Sometimes the tail, or furry part, is a
foot or more long and thick in propor

This word is In constant - use In
Northamptonshire, England. It has
two meanings, one being "to throw;"
e. g., "I'll sock a stone at you." A fa
vorite diversion among boys Is "sock
ing" birds. They proceed along the
hedge's, one boy or more on each side,
all armed with stones, with which they
unmercifully pelt, or "sock," any poor
bird they come across. The other mean
ing of the word is "to beat or to clout;"
e. g., "I'll fetch you a sock o the ear
hole." I have known "sock" in this connec
tion all my life, and it is sometimes
now used here. "I'll sock him," "I'll
give him bellsock," "He got a good
socking" are common forms. A for
midable fighter is called "a bellsock
er." "Sock" is common when speak
ing of "thrashings" given and taken.
"To give one socks," meaning "to
give one a good beating," is in common
use in East Anglia. And so Is "pull
up your socks" for "make baste" and
"set to work."

NOTE 5.000 shares of this company's TREASURY STOCK aro now on

2J per cent 10 percent per year. The proceeds from tbis sale go into ex
tensive improvements of the company's properties.
MINE DATA The opinions of the best miniug authorities in tho
United States on the values of the Company's ore deposits are fully con
tinned by the large output of Zinc concreatcs from the mines of 2,34s 520
pounds from Feb. 10 to April 21, and by the recent sale of the Rubber
Neck Mine for $S00, 000, wbich operates a leaso on six acres of tlio 37i-acro
deposit owned in fee by this company at Neck City.
The new shafts and mills under construction will, when completed, have
a' capacity of at least FOUR TIMES the present large output. As tho com
pany is at present operating only upon comprehensive limited area of fully
clroven deposits, the increase in future production possible to the Company
is limited only by the extent of development work it may carry on. Tho
new mill contracted for at the Company's Yale Mine will have a capacity of
240 tons or rough ore per day (single shift), and will be eijuippi d with air
compressor drills, electric hoists, and all modero appliances.
The zinc-mining industry is today in a very prosperous condition, inas
much as while production in general has materially lessened since last vein,
consumptive demand has enormously increased, the result being recent ad
vances in the existing high prices of ore of over $1 per ton.
Weekly report of the Superintendent, showing development and out
put, may be had at the Company's oflico.
