On one occasion u mun named Hostkint appeared for registration; but wlien asked how long he hod lived in ihe state, confessed that the time, was somewhat less than six months. The registration officer, after tell ing him he had not been in the state long enough, hesitated a moment, thei. a . ki d if he had "had the chills." "Yes, I had one yesterday," said Hoshins, "and I feel one coming on IIIW." "I'm him down," said the clerk to his a? - latent. "The chills are us good as a sit months' residence!"

Modern martyrs to vanity are Northumbrian women. The acquisi tion of the pale, ethereal complexion no much admired by their men leads them to the practice of a form' of beauty culture which has lately re sulted in the death of Jane Mold, who succumbed the other day to an ill ness induced by the habitual con sumption of raw starch and uncooked rice, says Black and Whfte. It is a well-known practice in the north, and hundreds of women who work in the fields hare the white mngnolia complexion resulting from tills treatment. The Northumbrian women have an other aid to beauty in the shape of "ugles" a vsriety of large cotton scoop bonnet mad-. on whalebones like an umbrella. This they wear as a protection from the sun and wind when working- out of doors is the hot sun. Most of these pallid females, if one goes up close to them, are observed to be nibbling starch, thus preserv ing thin doubtful advantage of com I i! by inward and outward pre- cani ions. "No uncooked rice" once appeared in n doctor's dtetary prescribed for an ailing north-country servant, puz zling the mistress exceedingly until she was enlightened as to the habits of the Northumbrian peasantry.

The wheel is 12 Iret in diameter and ill ditch to the arrastra is over ISoo feet long. The owners reports that the mill will treat at least 3,ooo.lbs. in 12 honrs. They have added con(.vntrati: g tables to catch the concentrates but they do not expect to eare many coneontrates as the ore is mostly free milling and is ariialgatating linely. The lead ie liotn tight to Ten feet wide and ima over one iintidred tons of ore on the dump. They have an incline shaft on the lead So feet deep and also a kinnel in over Boo feet which whan extended about 1"jo feet fur ther will cut the lead at a depth of ovr 5oo feet. This property is not Very high grade but A carries gold to such an extent and has such a large lead that it will pay its own detvl'ipmetit from now on and will pay tha owners a good margin. W. A.
