John Rice is making good at the Red Wing property, and he tells us his dirt is running about twenty per cent ore right along. Not having a mill, however, handicaps him some, as he has to rely on other mills to crush his dirt. He is making dividends right along, however, and that is what counts. The Eastman lawmaking two to three cars of clean ore per week. The dirt from the No. 2 shaft is getting better right along, and the output is limited only by the capacity of the mill Down in the south camp work is going on steadily. The Oklah is making lots of ore, as is also the Big Jack and the Red Feather, while the Black Jack is developing underground. The output of this mine is somewhat limited on account of the ground not being opened up sufficiently to allow the handling of a big enough volume of dirt. This will all be remedied soon, horn ever.

However, the tariff on steel rails and radium has been reduced, and that will help you out some. You know jou.use lots of radium and steel rails. These two items are very palata ble and flattering. The price of stockings for the children has been raised very materially, but what is the difference? Can't the children go it a la Simpson? Isn't it a mistaken idea that children need stockings, anyway? Besides you haven't been able in a coon's age to buy a pair of stockings that was worth a cuss, anyway? Why not dp away with them al together? It may cost consider' ablv more to live in the future than it has in the past, but what is the odds? Don't we have to have the tariff? - Besides, the vice president, Mr. Sherman, and Uncle Joe Cannon each have to have automobiles, paid for by the dear people. Uon t you re member, in reading the appro priation bill, that Congress voted $6,000 each to the vice president and Uncle Joe to buy automobiles with? You must not kick if you have to walk. Uncle Joe and the vice president are not able to buy their own machines. Uncle Joe is worth only five millions and Mr. Sherman only about twice as much.

Co Patient With tho Boy, I have a profound respect for! brown and sunburned boys. Grimy, ragged, tousled boys in the street often attract me strangely. A boy is a man in the cocoon ypu do not know what it is going to become his life is big with many possibili ties. He may make or unmake kings, change boundary lines be tween states, write books that will mold characters, or invent machines that will revolutionize the commerce of the world. Wouldn't you like to turn Time backward, and see Abraham Lin coln at twelve, when he had nev er wore a pair 01 boots. Tne lank, lean-yellow, hungry boy hungry for love, hungry for learn ing, tramping off through the woods for twenty miles to bor row a book, and spelling it out. crouching before the glare of the burning logs? Then there was that Corsican boy, one of a goodly brood, who weighed only .fifty r""2s when t?n ycers c the exchequer of France was in dire confusion would say: "The Finances? I will arrange them!" Very distinctly and vividly I remember a slim, freckled boy, who was born in the 'Patch," and used to pick up coal along the railroad tracks in Buffalo. A few months ago I had o motion to make before the supreme court, auu tuai uvjr nuiu iuc ranu was the judge who wrote the opinion granting my petition. Yesterday I rode horseback past a field where a boy was plowing. The lad's bair stuck out through the top of his hat, his form was bony and awkward; one suspender held his trousers in place; his legs and arms, were and briar scarred. He swung his horse around just as I passed by, and from under the flapping brim of his hat he cast a quick glance out of. dark, half-bashful eyes, and modestly returned my salute.1 When his back was turned I took off my hat and sent a God bless you down the furrow after him. Who knows? I may go to that boy to borrow money yet, or to hear him preach, or to beg him to defend me in a lawsuit; or he may stand w.ith pulse unhastened, bare of arm, in white apron, ready to do his duty, while the cone is placed over my. face, and Night and Death come creeping into my veins. Be patient with the boys jou are dealing with soul-stuff. Des tiny awaits just around the cor ner Elbert Hubbard. OLD SETTLER'S REUNION. Columbus, Cherokee County, Kd August 3, 4, 5 0, 1900 Come.
