Mining as aa Investment.
There is as much it money in vested in mining as in banking, and the former pays a much hand somer dividend. The prejudice against mining, like a hereditary taint, still clings to the ultra-con servative, the timid, and less ambi tious. Such notions and ideas on mining, though well intended, are based upon the theory that some one lost money either in mining proper, or in mining stock specula tion, Millions are sunk yearly in corn, wheat, pork or railroad spéc iation, b.ut no one condemns such anomalism, except, perhaps, the agriculturalist, or the suffering poor. "That the number of dividend paying mining companies is larger than that of all other combined in dustries is fully sustained by sta tistics. That mining produces quicker and greater profits than any other industrial pursuits is evidenced by the existence of scores of multi millionaires who owe their wealth to it." The above, from E. T. Rich, a prominent eastern banker, in an article contributed to The National Banker, a publication representa tive of conservatism, careful in vestments and banking and finan cial interests states as clearly as words will tell, why such a large percentage of the mine dividends from the west are being distributed among the once "ultra-conserva tive" in the east. It is the change which has over come the temper of the world that possesses the minds of men from the presidency of the government down through all the stations of public and private trust. It is not strange, then, that those living in the west, in the very sight and sound of the blasts that mine the ore, or the mills that treat it, should seek fortune from the treas ure vaults hidden beneath hill top country. every of this intermountain » Haviland China at Getchell,s. "At the present writing we have no desire to leave this vale of tears and hurl ourselves into Abraham's bosom," says the shaggy editor of the backwoods journal, "but if we should decide to do so we wouldn't lean up against a loaded shot gun and pull the trigger as many do. Neither would we eat a square meal of rough on rats, blow out the gas, drink concentrated lye, sit down in the lap of a buzz saw, smoke a cigarette or call a Ken tuckian a liar and a poor judge of whisky. We would simply get out an edition of our paper in which we would strive to the very best of our ability to print the plain square-toed truth about as we understand it and then calmly await the end."—Stolen.

Proprietors To Bachelors some hundreds of thousands more men than women in the Central and Western States of America and in Canada. As a result thousands of trustworthy men— Farmers, Miners and others—living in certain districts there cannot possibly get wives in their own neighborhoods. But in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales there are a million more women than men and, in these countries, thousands of. good, intelligent and attractive girls—many of them daughters of farmers and all of them qualified to make excellent wives—see nothing before them while they stay here but the pros pect of living and dying as old maids and this, to them, is a decidedly unpleasant prospect. They would willingly emigrate to America, could they be assured that they were going to meet worthy men their they could look forward to happy, if humble, homes on the other side of the Atlantic. We may say that all of them could afford to There husbands, and that emigrate at their own expense. We are prepared to give good men introduc tions to these girls If yon wish to get an introduction please write with such particulars of yourself (age, nationality, occupation and circumstances) as a sensible girl would expect to get and we shall write you in reply, with a view to bring ing about a suitable introductiou without un due delay. Tell us what kind of a wife, (age, nationality, appearance and disposition) you wish to get. If you have a preference for any particular Christian sect please name it. You will also enclose our Fee of Five Dollars. A further fee of Forty-five Dollars will be due to withiu one month after marriage, thus mak ing Fifty Dollars altogether. We do not con fine ourselves to one introduction. We give as will be necessary until marriage. But many we make no charge for any introduction after the payment of the said fee of Five Dollars for the first. It is not at all necessary that you should be a wealthy man. But it is necessary that you be a man who would make a kind and good husband to a good wife. If you are not such a man please do not write us. Address, MESSRS.
