The Idaho Statesman quotes approv ingly the comments of an Oregonian correspondent on the tendency of miners to abandon work in half-devel oped fields to engage in a wild ruslh for new fields, and adds, "In southern Idaho, as in Oregon, the real wealth has not yet been opened up. The boom ex citements of early days led people to desert good districts, just as in our neighbor states. Long inactivity brought on the belief that districts here were worthless or exhausted, as has been the case in Oregon. But here, as in the state that borders us on the west, there is to be an awakening, and in a short time the gold mines of southern Idaho will be the wonder of the mining world." And what is true of Idaho is also true of Montana. Right in the hills that form a background for the city of Helena, and in the region within a radius of fifty miles from the city, more gold and silver will yet be mined than in the palmy days of old. Claims were abandoned in the stampedes to the Black Hills, the Cceur d'Alenes, and other districts, that never had been half worked. New men with new methods are coming into this distriot and they will reap a rich reward for their fore sight and enterprise. With the intro duction of eoonomieal systems of min ing and reduction work we shall see a revolution in the industry in this state. In fact we are already witnessing its beginnings. There is temporary de pression in silver mining, to be sure, owing to bad financial legislation, but in spite of all drawbacks, the future was never so promising as it is to-day. There is more development work than ever before; more Intelligence and skill are being applied to every form of min ing; and the results of well-directed energy were never more certain. From all the camps that dot the mountain sides in the region round about Helena comes the same story of hope and prom ise. We are at the threshold of such an era of advancement and development as Montana has never seen. WORK SHOULD GO WITH PRAYER? One of the first teaohings of Christi anity to new converts is to pray without ceasing if they wish for the things which are good. This advice, we believe, is common in all religions from the sun worshipping idolatry of Inca to the lat est forms of religious belief as developed by Dr. Briggs. Prayer is the corner stone of the faith. It affords to the Christian the sweetest consolation of communion with the Master and furn ishes that strength which he must needs have to follow His teachings. Yet it is certain that very many Christians make a serious mistake, not in forms, but in the delusive and selfish confidence that prayer alone will accomplish all that is asked. This notion is referred to with much force by Rev. Dr. McConnell, of Philadelphia. Some time ago the bishop of Pennsyl vania prepared a form of prayer for de liverance from threatened invasion of cholera. Dr. McConnell very boldly declared that his parishioners in Phila delphia had no standing in the court of Heaven to offer such a prayer until they had exhausted all earthly means of pre venting an epidemic. He declared that it would be a mockery at this time and said: "Instead of leading you into an unwarranted prayer, I think I would better discharge the duty of a Christian minister by calling to your mind your own duty and your own shortcomings in the premises. Having deliberately and wantonly neglected every means of cleanliness to avert the cholera, it is futile for people who will not help them selves to call on God to help them." The doctor's pointed advice suggests the necessity of adding working as well as praying not only to prevent the cholera, but in all other fields where help is needed. The warrior who per mits his weapons to rust can never hope for victory through prayer. THIRTY thousand people who went to Colorado from the rigorous climate of the east to cure weak lungs and other ailments, made Denver the pushing, thriving city that it is, said an old resi dent of the mountain metropolis to Julhan Ralph, of Harper's Magazine. They have regained health and strength and given of their energy and resources to the upbuilding of the city. Colorado is largely what she is to-day by reason of thoroughly advertising her superior climate in the east. Montana is further north than Colorado but her average altitude is so much lower as to offset the difference in latitude. Our skies are as bright, our days as sunshiny, our atmosphere as full of ozone, and our lower altitude is more favorable to per sons suffering from nervous troubles or diseases of the respiratory organls Right here in Montana la one of the best climates on the round gl.be, yet we venture to say that ode fýundred persons know about the. virtuip of Col orado air to one who has heard of Mon tana's glorious climate. Why don't we. advertise it? TIE World's fair managers should consult Mrs. MeAdow and other' Mon tanians accustomed to dealing with req ty.k asn pobility, before making further blmhwnt. Thei blue blood of the Infanta li.lgia has been made frigid by being assigned to the superb rooms at the new htote Waldorf in New York because, forsooth, her humble subject, the duke of Verague, had previously occupied them, . She wants a now hotel that has never been used by any minion of Spain or other country. It is surprising that the greatest pork packing center on earth hasn't developed somebody with talent as an advance agent for royalty on a starring tour. We crave the par don of her royal highness and, as slight atonement, we ask her to accept the Montana building for her Chicago pal ace-and most humbly beg that she will take it home with her! WE hope every reader of THE INDe PENDENT perused with care the article in yesterday's paper on the results of farming in the Yellowstone valley. It contains the facts without coloring or warping and demonstrates beyond con troversy that farming in Montana can be carried on under better conditions and with greater profit than in almost any other section of the union. Farming does pay in Montana. It will continue to pay so long as our home market re mains unsupplied. We are making our selves poorer by every dollar we send out of the state to buy grain, beef, pork, poultry, eggs and small fruits that we can raise at home. We spend millions or dollars for these articles annually. Let us keep this money at home and invite eastern farmers to come here and supply us with what we consume. T'HE world-beating Campania broke the record last week by crossing the Atlantic in five days, seventeen hours and forty minutes, or cutting off two hours from the time of the American liner, the City of New York. The new locomotive of the Empire State express smashed another record to smithereens by striking a gait of 112 miles 'an hour. Corporations nowadays seem to agree with Poor Richard, who said: "Dost thou love life, then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of?" Meanwhile the race goes on, but with the science of record breaking comes greater safety in travel, and under these conditions the public is al ways ready to offer its applause and en couragement. THERE is a scheme on foot to build an opera house in this city and if our busi ness men and capitalists will offer a little material encouragement it will go through successfully. THE INDEPEN DENT will not discuss the prospective now theater because it has often urged a necessity patent to all citizens. Helena is up to the times in all other modern improvements. She has hotels, street railways and fine business blocks. She only needs a first class opera house to complete the list. This can now be had with very little difficulty if a few public-spirited citizens will place their names on the subscription list. THAT declaration in favor of a single term for the president was a happy after-thought of the republican gather ing at Louisville, but it would have done more good had it been delivered at Minneapolis last June. We would hlike to know what the Heon. Benjamin Har rison thinks of it. HERE'S to Miss Montana Justitia, the silver queen! May her matinee to-day be a rousing success. And here's hoping that she will give that Wall street crowd her coldest shoulder and most metallic stare! IT is noticed that Montana is always the last state in the union to be affected by a financial panic. This is because the greater part of her development is done by home capital. WITIIN a few weeks we will know whether the Six Companies have a lien on the United States. FOUND FLOATING. Spring. with her dreamy languors and her deep (John, close that windy door!) Pathos and Deace doth in her roses reap. (Heavens, how the wind does roe'!) In her rare gardens wandering she goes, (Here. bring some kindling sticks!) Kisses to white and crimson rose on rose. (My feet are cold as brioks:e She makes her bad on lilies, and her rest (My fingers -they are numb!) Is wondrous sweet, while stars dream on her broaht. (WLen will that coal cart come?) At morn, with sunbeams tangled in her hair (What's got into the fire?) She sets her songbirds singing in the air. (John, pile the coal on higher:) And all their songs are love songs--but they sing (It's going to freeze, I fear!) Only of one-and her sweet namo is Spring! (Mercy! the cyclone's here:) -Atlanta Constitution. As the hoe cake is to be generally intro duced in Europe the now eater must learn the old song: My gal. my gal. she is so mighty fine, An' I'm gwine to marry 'er soon; An' we'll all go down by do river bank, An' dance by the light o' de moon. She ken dance, she ken sing, She ken play on do banjo, too; Bhe can rock de kradle, she can sing de song, An' bake do hoo cake done.

It was required of him to record the names of all parchas erea in a book for the inspeotion of the townspeople. At the town meeting he made his annual report, in which he made the following statement: One day a din young lady called at the agency and wantoi to see the record book. She examined iti pages and what she found no one else knew but when a certain nice young man callec to see her the next sunday evening she weta " lat et home."

Poor Prlnce Ferdinand of Bulgaria seems to have met with no end of obstaoles on his way from Vienna to Italy to get married, and, if he is at all supeietitions, must be flled with some misgivings as tO his do measti happiness in the future. At the last station of any importance on the Austrian side of the frontier the conductor sent off the train without the prince and hil party, who were in the restaurant, and thi train had to be brought back from some dis tance, and this with considerable dif~culty. At -Poatebba the conductors were changed, the second having to be placed under arrest on acoount of draukennese. This caused considerable delay. On the train reaching Udloe and the tickets of the princely party being demanded it was die. covered that they had remained in the pos session of the drunken guard, who had been left behind at Pontebba. The prince de olined to pay again, sand the Italian railroad authorities declined to permit his party to proceed without tickets, and some time elapsed before telegraphic assurances had been obtained from Pontebbarthat the tick etc taken from the Bulgarian party had been duly found in the possession of the guard. Nor was this all, for a few hours later the engine broke down and another long delay ooourred before relief could be obtained.-Chioago Record. WALTER BESANT'S MAXIMS. He Ventures Upon the Role of a Sage With Startling Resulte. It is part of the sage to make maxima. I have for some time suspected that I have arrived at that period of life when the sage is at his best, and I have now therefore tried my hand at a few asetnl maxims, writes Walter Besant in the London Queen. Hers they are-a mixed and miscelaneous lot. Of course, the sage at this time of day mast be cynical in order to be popular. I hope some of these are cynical enoughb. Those on riches seem-to a partial parent to be maxims really worthy of the most eastern-the most Himalayan-of sages. OUt of ten men nine arehorn to work for the tenth. Resolve to be the tenth, Without trampling the cleverest cannot get rich. Dives is rover an example, because no body considers himself really rich. If you cannot become rich, remember the many miseries of the rich. The consolation of those who fail. is to depreciate those who succeed. He who foresees never acts. The greatest things are done by the greatest fools. Wise men never attempt anything. When you lose a leg begin at .choi to practice with a wooden one. Men's motives are mercifully hidden by their shirt fronts. Observe moderation in all things-espe. cially in virtues. The best way to make a man honest is to make him ashamed of being found ou. There may be pride even in confersing mistakes. Everybody says that gentle birth is an accident, and everybody treats it as an achievement. The most charming attribute o, friend ship is the right of candor. Cheerfulness may be an admirable cloak. An Ancient Copper Coln. An obverse and reverse rubbing of a large copper coin have been forwarded to the editor of Notes for the Curious, from Chester, Ill., together with a newspaper clipping, which is printed below: "Rudolph teacke, a well known farmer of this vicin ity, has in his possession a coin remarkable for its age. It is a large copper piece. nearly as large as a United States dollar. It is dated 1707. The eide having the date bears the word 'Britannia' in capital let. ters and the figure of a woman. On the other side are the words, 'Georgius III., D. G., Rex,' also in capital letters, and the head of King George III. in profile. The denomination of the coin is not given." It is evident that some one has fallen into a grave error concerning the coin either as to its date and the legends it bears, or as to the name of the monarch in whose reign it was struck. George III. wan not born until June 4, 1738, and it is not at all likely that a coin "bearing his profile" should be put in circulation in the year 1707. Eighteen hundred and seven will do all right enough for a date on one of George IIL's coins, but 1707 is most too previouL--St. Louis Re public. The Pennies We Lose. Small copper coins are lost in such ehnor mons numbers that the government is obliged to keep on coining cents at the rate of several millions of them every month. They change hands so often as to be sub ject to a multitude of accidents, and, owing to their small vaine, they are not taken care of. This is no cause of regret to Uncle Sam, inasmuch as he buys his pennies in blank from a firm in Connecticut at the rate of 1.000 for $1. On reaehing the mint in Philadelphia. whence all of them are issued, they have merely to be stamped. There are 119.000,000 old. eopper pennies somewhere. Nobody knows what hba become of them, except that once in a while a single specimen tuons up in change A few years ago 4,00.000 bronze two-cent pieces were afloat. Three millions of them are still outstanding. 'lhree million three.cent nickel pieces are scattered over the United States, but it is very earely that one is seen. Of 800,000 half-cents, which correspond in value to English farthings, not one has been re turned to the government for recoinage or is held by the treasury. EIx-tinriater Line,,Icn Home.
