The I'mim-nn of I!ifoini. The course of civil service reform in the United States some what resembles the course of true love, which, according to Shake speare, "never did rim smooth." Sometimes it has been obstructed by Congress; sometimes bj spoilsmen atnon department officials; sometimes by an un friendly or neglectful executive. Hut, over or - under or around obstacles, it has moved onward surely, if not assteadily as might have been wished. Some ideaof the progress which has been made may be obtained from tlu last report of the civil service cot:inisMoti. More places were I'l'ed through competitive examination in the national Service la1! year than in any previous year muco, the system became operative in 1SS3. The :ifi!j re:;.ito -alariesoi the positions now in tii? classified service, which can be re;u h jd only through competitive examinations, are ab.jut two and one-half times the aggregate of salarie in the uuclasM lied service. Much remains to be done; but that so much has been done in less than twenty years in an occasion of congratula tion. The reform touches not only the method of filling the oflices, but the former methods qf empty ing them. A man who gets a place through the competitive system lias, for two reaVms,' a more secure tenure than one who gets it through a political "pull;" one, that his capacity has b 'en tested by the examination, and he is therefore more likely than a man not so tested to be tit for the required duties; the other, that an appointing officer is less apt to remove a competent subordinate if he is not allowed to put a personal or political friend in his place. So it comes to pass that the removals, for all causes, of persons entering the civil service through, competitive examina tions, are less in any year than one in a hundred of the whole number of officers. Jv'ecent occurences in and out of Congress show that the reform is not secure against attack. I!ut a strong public sentiment is behind the principle that fitness rather than favoritism should control appointments, and although eddies and side currents may sometimes suggest a retrograde movement, the main course of the current will be onward. Youths Companion. Didn't Mr, m I That Way. The attempt of the small boy to be polite ended rather disastrously, although not through any intentional omis sion on his part. lie had been in ihe habit of supplying the even ing paper to a politician, a man pf correct business habits, who discovered on'. evening that he had not the penny for payment. "That's all light," said the 603-; "you ivn give it to me to morrow night." "Hut, my boy," interposed the gentleman, mpresvely, "1 may not be alive to-morrow ni:ht." ' answered the 'it'll be 110 great "Never mind bov, cheerfully; los,." A shadow fill across the utaU Milan's face, and he is still wondering whether the boy, despite his look of innocence, was thinking solely of the penny. A Nhrht of Terror. "Awful anxiety was felt for the widow of the brave General Hurnham of Machias, Me., when the doctors said she would die r from Pneumonia before morning" writes Mrs. S. II. Lincoln, who attended her that fearful night, but she begged fur Dr. King's New Discovery, which had more than once saved her life, and cured her of Consumption. After taking, she slept all night.

His last shipment netted over $75. 00 per ton. Our camp seems deserted toone passing through it during the day. Every man is employed in the mines and work delayed on account of lack of Ininers. (leneral Vance has a force of men retimbering the Keadjuster, prejiaretory Jo extensive work. This property s1nws one of the largest oso bodies in the camp. Kruse and lJeeson are working the Good Enough, sacking ore for shipment. The Good Enough has produced a great deal of ore and from the present outlook is just running into "bonanza." The Silver Monument Company arc working a large force on the mill in Chloride Creek, just below the Silver Monument mine. The mill will be equipped with all modern improvements, including Standard concentrating tables. '11 . ... .. r . 1 1. : .. .... 1 or iii'si ui nr.: i;ev. iiiuvuiuo is on the ground. This property has been the greatest producer in the Hiack Kaii'e, and with a mill to treat the enormous bodies of medium grade ore on the ground, shipping the high grade, it should again make a record equal to any 01 the great mines of Colorado. The New Era, adjoining the Silver Monument on Chloride Creek, is fast assuming the conditions of a mine. A boarding house has just been completed at the mine and cabins fitted up for the men, and an ore house and blacksmith shop built at the mouth of the tunnel. The raise to con nect the lower tunnel with upper workings is being driven day and night. Connection will be made this month, when stoping will commence. Shipping ore is being sacked from the raise at present. Development will be pushed from the lower tunnel to open up more ground. This property has a bright future, and under the efficient management of Lee Terry will make a record for itself and the Ulack Kange the coming rear. T. IS 1 1 1 X)c on Lift) Insurance. The late Dill Nye's indorsement of life insurance is probably the most characteristic paragraph to be quoted from his writings: "In these days of dynamite and swift changing presidential administrations and dark tunnels through which an engineer goes groping his way at 25 miles per hour, these days of tumbling signs of the times and tipsy telegraph polos, live wires and dead repairers; these days when the politician and the deadly bridge policeman yvith his pull lie down together under the influence of the same stimulant; these days when death lurks in the air we breathe, the earth we tread, the food weeat, the water the water we bathe in I say it behooves us to look well to our insurance and our future state, and I take pleasure in certifying and sa iug to whom these presents may come ttiat since 1 became fully insured my health has improved so much that it is a sub ject for profound congratulation on my own part and the deepest disgust on the part of those who would naturally inherit my vast wealth."
