A number of Bedford people are or- j re ganizing a general stock companv to start a store and buy ont the Bedford i t'reamerv and- Mercantile Co. Mr. Thatcher has offered to sel I the cream-j j ■ erv and stock of goods, and a deal is on foot, contemplating the moving of the store to Bedford. A bunch of O. S- L. surveyors is now at work in the Snake River canyon, going over some of tbe work which was done last winter, preparatory to com mencing work on the road. The next more »ill be to survey op through the valley. The building of this cntoff by the Short Line is a certainty. Theie is a move by several of tbe knowing ones to get in on the ground floor Considerable stir is being made here laiely in mining circles. Mr. Howland and partner have taken np several good claims, and are located on a fine lead. < Mr R. Kennington. who bas been busy all winter, on the qniet. has now a tuntie! into the mountain some 6(1 feet in length and is sail pushing ahead. We are unable to state the extent of bis location, bnt being an experienced mining man. he evidently has some thing worth driving for. i A Great Benefit. Four mines in the Coeur d'Alenes will this year pay taxes on au assessed valuation of slightly over fonr million dollars. That is nearly equal to the total assessed vaine of all the property in Latah connty last year. The exact figures of gross and net production of these fonr mines for last year, which furnish the basis for taxation this year —tbe tax being levied on the net profit -are as follows: Tbe Bn tike'- Hill and Sullivan at Ward nor. working the greatest silver lead mine in the world, produced ore worth gross *4.586.112. Ä 4 and it yielded a net profit of *1,957.4 more than doubled 17.2s. Tbe profits in a year. The Federal Mining & SmeltiDg companv. working silver lead mines at Ward) er. Burke and Mullan, shipped ore worth gross *5.962.365 59. with a net profit of *126.96.36.199. The Hercules, a silver lead producer at Burke, shipping ore — -worth gross *943.306.9«. realized a net profit, of *-375.348.90. The Snowstorm, a cupper prodneer at Mullan. vieided *834 total gross yield of these four companies was #12. 326,63«. 42 and the net profits were *4.086.097.7«. There are other profit producing mines in the Coeur d'Alene district tirobabiy. but the aggregate net pro ceeds of the same are possibly not very imposing. and will not add tnneh io tbe total. The showing made, however, is a good one and will have a tendency to pnt the finances of Shoshone county on • easy street " in a few years. A few years ago these mines paid compara tively no taxes. Fortunately Latah countv sent the Hon. Francis Jenkins to The legislature. He introduced the mine taxation bill which is now ou our «3 gross or *168.053.19 net. The Its operation has lieen a great benefit to tbe people of the state, in that it has im jmsed upon tbe mine owner his just share of tbe burdens of taxation. -Mos Have you pain* in the back - tntiamma ÏÏÎmhS Ilster'sRocfcj Mountain Tea makes you well.

In its Inte-ior arrangement, says a writer in the House Beautiful, the southern residence has always been called upon to meet not only the de mands of convenience and comfort, but also thodb of hospitality and en tertainment as well, for the south erner is decidedly a social being, given to entertainment in all its forms. This characteristic was not only gratified, but actually fostered by the big rooms of the white-col umned houses of the old south.

Externally the typical southern an Italianesque structure by to to is is Soon after the war the populariza tion of the sliding door made it pos sible for small rooms to perform tbe functions of large ones on occasions, and for a while the southern builder cut his house up after the manner of bis northern brother, though not quite in the same restricted propor tions. That phase may now be said to have passed, and general taste in the south is once more in favor of spacious chambers. So genuine is this preference, that even in small bouses the space usually dividej be tween two rooms is now given Usually tbe room thus formed to one. is a long one, a sort of salon.

A famous German aurgeon, a pom pous man. who loved to impress his patients and students with his Impor tance. was lecturing to his students day when a workingman entered room. The surgeon stopped him a gesture and ordered his class look at him. "Now, Mr. X." he said one of the students, "what is the matter with this man? From here should be able to make a correct diagnosis simply by locking at the man's face, his bearing and the con tour of his head." Mr. X, Mr. Y and Z having failed to make any di agnosis whatsoever, the rrofessor tri umphantly declared: "You ought to at the first glance that the man deaf and dumb."
