The Pearce mine in Cochise
county has got back on its old
pay streak and is turning- out
bullion by the car load now.
The mine has paid better the
past six weeks than ever before
in its history. Gazette.
The coal famine in Europe and
the difficulty of filling Europe's
future want for coal, ought to be
a matter' of anxiety to the na
tions beyond the Atlantic. The
cost of coal in Great Britain has
so increased that it cannot com
pete with American coal any
where in the Mediterranean
ports. '
What would be the difference
to us, asks an exchange, wheth
er a foreign foe were to conquer
this country and levy a tribute
on the people of several hun
dred millions a year and the
trusts doing the same thing?
Are the people not despoiled
just the same? If you would
have reason to defend your prop
erty against the one why vote
for a system that makes the
other possible?

Electric cartridges are offered
by an Italian, SeƱor Donato
Tommassi, as a substitute for
dynamite for mine work and
warfare. The composition used
in the cartridges is carbonate of
potash and chloride of amonia,
the proportion varying accord

mite effects in rock work, or
powder effects in ordnance. The

trie current, or spark, which
produces instantaneous electro
lytic effects upon the chemicals
which are contained in separate
compartments of the cartridge.
The inventor claims that the
cartridges, until subjected to the
effect of electricity, are entirely
inoffensive and perfectly safe,
so that there will be no necessi
ty of isolating the magazines
where they are stored.
A writer in Ainslee's Maga
zine points out that the world's
output of gold in 1898 was $287,-1
428,600 and that in the United
States was $64,463,000. The
value of the cotton crop in the
United States, that is,, the raw
cotton in 1897 was $319,491,412.
The cotton crop in the United
States is, therefore, 11 per cent
greater than the gold output of
the world, and five times great
er than the gold output of the
United States.
Statistics of the above char
acter betray an inevitable defi
ciency of money consequent up
on the gold standard. There is
not enough annual output of gold
in the whole world to pay for
the annual cotton crop of the
United States! The entire gold
output of the United States five
times less than sufficient to meet
the annual American cotton bill!
Add all the American products
and we are forced into using
wild-cat money as a make-shift
for good money. Ex.
A restaurant conducted on bib
lical principles "as Christ would
conduct an eating house," is in
successful operation in Chicago.
The walls are decorated with
quotations from the scriptures.
Meetings are held in the restau
rant every Saturday evening and
it is closed on Sundays. Per
sons whose appearance betokens
poverty are not allowed to pay
for meals, and departing pat
rons are sent away with a bless
ing. The proprietor of the place
is a reformed drunkard.
