Frank Rood linn fitted up the ground fioor of the old Eureka sa loon building on east Main street as an assay office and now offers his services to the mining public as a practical assayer and analyst of all kinds of ores. His furnace, laboratory and chemical outfit is complete and up-to-date, and in addition to the appliances of the trade, which is an interesting ex hibit in itself to amateurs, ho has many choice and valuable speci mens of ores and minerals from different parts of the country. The Free Press chamber of hor rors and cabinet of curiosities will shortly bo removed to the assay office and rearranged for a public exhibit. Mr. lteed knows his business thoroughly and those who want quick and reliable re turns of ores can now save much valuable time by having their work done in Orangeville instead of sending off ami losing time waiting for the slow mail service. Time is money nowadays, and an assay office in Orangeville fills a long-felt-want. Jersey House Annex. George K. Reed has leased the Hunt building on Alain street east of the Jersey House, and has fitted the upstairs portion into well ap pointed and nicely furnished bed rooms for the accommodation of the patrons of the Jersey House. The hotel is now doing the best business it has had for a long time, and with the advent of the long looked-for spring and consequent arrival of the usual summer travel a prosperous season for this long established and always popular hostelry may confidently be ex pected. Mr. Reed has made many changes and improvements in the internal and domestic economy of the hotel since he assumed the management and is keeping up its reputation in all respects. The annex has been added for the ac comodation of guests who require greater privacy and more comfort, and all such will find the new quarters up-to-date in every par ticular. was a J. is Ever the ltight Comes Vyper most. The correct estimate of intelli gence is in the ability of the indi vidual to judge correctly what is true, from what is false. And the fuct that some can express them selves more fluently than others is no evidence of merited superi ority, and it seems that the time has Dually arrived in the political history of our country, when the true intelligence uninfluenced by fallacious and paid-for arguments, is to assert itself. Protectionists and gold-bugs can buy expressions of opinion, but all tho wealth of all the nations cannot purchase one grain of the actual element. Tho inspired founders of our re public realized that tho abil ity of mankind to distinguish truth from falsehood is the living rock on which our liberties are founded; and though long buried under tho foul debris of political and merce nary motives, surely tho signs are that soon the flood of honest opin ion will sweep it all away and leave the enduring foundation on what will rise the new temple of truth open to all the people. - High ll'ater Motes . After coming within seven feet of the high water of '94 tho river has fallen some five feet. Tho state wagon road is still im passable owing to being under water, and nearly swimming in 80,110 P laco8 for horso or wagon. The road is damaged considerably at present and with tho water a few feet higher than it has been great damage will be done. The wall below Capt. Wilson's place is gone entirely. People along the river resort to the old combination of cayuso and pack saddle as a means of trans portation, and it is not unusual to see a pack animal loaded with a trunk, smoko house or other par cel, passing along the trail. It is believed the water will yet reach the mark of '94 this year, as the high snow on the head waters of Salmon river is scarcely started yet. of at If a Freedom, June 8, 1896. E. B.
