Unless, madam, in the name of pity, you give me assistance, I will be compelled to do something which I never before have done, which I would greatly dislike to do." Much impressed, the lady made haste to place In his hand a bill. As the man pocketed It with profuse thanks, she inquired: "And what is the dreadful thin? I have kept you from doing, my poor man?"

Understand the Taste His Customers, Two men were discussing the various food products now being supplied in such variety and abundance. One, a grocer, said, "I frequently try a package or so of any certain .n icle before offering it to my trade, and in that way sometimes form a different idea than my customers have. "For Instance, I thought I would try some Postum Food Coffee, to gee what reason there was for such a call fur It At breakfast 1 didn't like it and simper proved the same, so 1 naturally concluded that my taste was different from that of the customers who bought It right along. "A day or two after, I waited on a lady who was buying a pa. k age and told her I couldn't understand how one could fancy the taste of Postum. "'1 know Just what Is the matter,' she said, "you put the coffee l)( iier on the stove for just fifteen minutes, and ten minutes of that time It simmered, and perhaps five minutes it l,,iled; now If you will have it left to boll full tlfteen minutes after it commence! to boll, you will find a delicious Java-Ilbeverage, rich in food value of gluten and phosphates, so choice that you will never abandon It, particularly w hen you see the great gnln In health.'

A company known as the Dietrich Milling company, and composed of Utahns, has a lease upon the old Comstock dumps, at Virginia City, Nevada, and affairs have just ben shaped correctly for an era of prosperity. Jesse Knight of Prove intends to become a coal operator and railroad man. He has acquired coal lands in L'intah county, i'tah, and within a few months will begin the construction of a railroad to the coal measures which he owus. After a period of nearly fifteen years of inactivity, the Detroit mining district, which lies about thirty miles northwest from Oasis, Utah, is again about to take on new life. The formation of the Detroit district is a counterpart of Tintic. Reports are current that F. Augustus Heinze Is connected with the Smelting company, just incorwith Jlu.ooo.OOO porated in Maine, capital. The new company, it is unsmellderstood, will build a 3,000-to- n er in the Salt Lake valley. Great excitement exists at Centennial, Wyoming, a lead of gold ore bear-'bsamples that run as high as J1.000 to the ton having been discovered west tf that place. The lead can be followed for seven miles, and in places the vein is 150 feet wide. A trench fourteen feet deep shows rich ore to the bottom. A New York woman who is prospecting In Nevada has determined to be comfortable, and to do so adopted male attire, wearing overalls, shirt and :i large straw hat. A woman with nerve enough to suffer the privations of a year among the mountains and deserts of Nevada certainly deserves to discover a bonanza. Our monthly The Iron Age says: blast furnace statistics show that the was 2,247,420 in June production 2,201,030 tens in May. tons, ag:-inJuly fltarts with twelve more stacks in blast than were in operation on the first day of June, and the outlook is that the production will be well maintained. Since the first of June the American Smelting & Refining company has cut the price of lead 55 cents per 100 pounds that is, the company has lowered the settling basis with the producer that much. Yet there is nothing to show that the metal is any more plentiful than it was a month or six months ago. Railroads and water are the two things most needed in the Lee, Nevada, district, but these are coming. It is stated that a twelve-incpipe line will be run into the camp by Rhyolite capitalists, and that a spur track from the main line of the Borax Smith railroad track will be run into the town and to the mines. In all probability business will be very quiet in Owyhee county, Idaho, after July 20. The 400 miners at Silver City and De Lamar have made a demand on the Trade Dollar and De Lamar Mining companies for an increase of 25 cents a day after July 20. The owners declare the limit has been reached in wages. Preparations are now being made at the Honerine at Stockton, Utah, shaft befor the sinking of a 200-folow the train tunnel level and ground will probably be broken within a few days. This shaft is to be equipped with hoist, pumps, etc., and every necessary precaution will be taken to see that nothing hinders the work, once it is under way. It is now planned by the Halaklula to begin breaking ore in August, to have a supply for beginning operations of the smelter by September 1, wnen it is expected to be ready to treat both Balaklala and Trinity ore.

A A cross-bone- The Fourth of July. Somehow the Fourth of July of today seems tame and insipid compared to the Fourths of our boyhood days. We suppose it is dyspepsia, or point of view, but, anyhow, we are honest when we casually remark on the utter shortcomings of the celebrations of Now, when we were a boy, there was Rill Sprunt. Hill was an old soldier with several good streaks in him, two of them being early vegetables and patriotism. William was the town cannonader. He made an annual canvass every July 3 to secure funds with which to buy powder for the village cannon, au awesome bit of ordnance that never faiied to lift up its thunderous voice when primed and rammed by William Sprunt! On the morning of July 4, along about the time ma was getting worried over Ettie and her beau in the hammock. Hill would lei er loose for the first time! "Room!" A detonation rent the air for miles, echoing and among the hills we knew and loved. The town folks turned over In bed and tried hard to go to sleep, realizing that Morpheus and Rill Sprunt were started on a battle royal! Then the town bad boys pulled the church bell ropes until the sextons had cataleptic fits, the factory whistle was tied open and the nigger-chase- r fire alarm joined General Sprunt in making a large pandemonium with calliope attachments. And biggest batrachian in all the puddle was William Sprunt. Charge after charge he fired, while early pedestrians gathered about and cheered our hero in his army clothes. All day long he held the fort, a powder-stained- . to-da- able-bodie- d noise-creatin- Hug-lovin- wor- shiped saver of his country. But, alas, as night came on and the noise died little by little of weariness. Bill Sprunt would steal away to where the adder lurked, to seek false patriotism in the stinging cup. Rate at night the veteran of the warring field was taken home, mute and as helpless as the town cannon, but he had done his duty well. Year after year he primed and fired the shot that sent the Fourth of July message around our little world. Others endeavored to steal in upon his honors by being wounded on the July field of battle, but triumphantly he held his own. Despite hfs lapses from sobriety's path, public sentiment accorded him a place of honor at the touch-holof the town cannon. He had his bad streaks, but when St. Peter needs a cannonader up above, we f, el sure that Hill Sprunt will wear a clown above his soldier's blue.

Not long ago he visited a man he had met in Chicago, and who maintains a big farm near Cairo, whither he had insisted the youngster come for a lengthy stay.
