The obliging friend made inquiries and found a certain Miss . Without stopping to make his own inquiries about the girl and taking his friend's word for granted, the young man made elaborate preparations for the great day. At a certain hour the bride was brought to her new home. As soon as she stept out of her goi geously decked sedan chair the bride groom made off and could not be found. After a long search, his friends found him in a cheap tea house and asked him why he disap peared just as the bride alighted from the sedan chair. And this, ac cording to the Chinese Press, is the poor "modern" young man's reply: "When she left her chair, I saw she had small feet. I thought then she was old-fashioned and would not make a good match for me, so I quit. What I want is a nice, fashionable young lady." Shanghai, North-China Her ald.

"He has just asked her to marry him and she has consented. It's lovely! What does the artist call the picture?" The young man leaned nearer and eyed a label on the frame. "I see!" he cried.

LABOR DEMANDS CLOSE MINES NEAR CANANEA A Bisbee report states that the Democrata mine at Cananea will clooe down at the end of this month, accord ing to reports from that place, on ac count of the inability of the company to meet the demands for increased pay made by the Mexican union labor The Cananea Consolidated Copper company, the big producer of the dis trict, while not acceding to the qp mands of the union, will continue op erations pending negotiations with the Mexican government, according to the reports. Mining companies operating in Mexico are under a heavier expense than those operating on this side of the line on account of an export tax of 2 cents a pound on copper bullion and a heavy import tax on coal and fuel oils, besides other taxes paid to the Mexican government. These con ditions, coupled with the condition of the copper market, are having a de pressing effect on business in the Sonora mining camp.
