The Man Behind the rick 'l'here has been all kinds of gush about the man who is behind And t he man behind the cannon has been toasted, wined and dined Tbere's the man behind tbe musket and the man behind the fence; , And the man behind his Whiskers, and the man behind his rents; And the man behind the plow beam, and the man behind the hoe; And the man 'beh~nd the ballot, and the man behind the dough; And the man behmd ,the .counter, and the man behind the hill; the man behind the pestel, and ·the man behind the pill; . the man behind the jimmy, and the man behind the 'bars ; And the Johnny that goes swOOping on the stage behind the stars; And the man . behind the kisser,and the man behind the fist; And the girl 'behind the man behind the gun is on the list; And the man behind the bottle-and when they were short of men, There was some small rhymster warbled. of the man behind the pen. But they missed one bonest fellow, and I'm raising of a kick; For they don't make any mention of the man behind the pick. Up the rugged mountain side a thousand feet he takes , bls way, Or, as far into the darkness, from the cheering light of day; He is s'hut out from the sunlight, 1n the gUmmer of the lamps; He is cut off from the sweet air, in the sickly fumes and damps; He must toil in cramped posItions, he mus, t take his Ilfe in hand, For he works in Jeadly peril that ,but few can understand. But he does it all in silence and he seldom makes a kick, Which is why I sing the praises of the man behind the , pick. He unlocks the 'bolted portals of the mountain, to the stores Hid In nature's vast exchequer In her treasure house of ores. He applies the key dynamiC and the gates are backward rolled An~ the ancient 'locks are riven to their secret heart of gold; , Thmgs of x mfort and of beauty and of usefulness are mined this brave and quiet worlrer-he's a friend of human kind though t rampled down and underpaid, toils on without ~ ki lift my hat in honor to the man behind the pick. ~Burt A.

An extremely large percentage of the accidents that occur in the Alps 'befall ~rsons w,ho, without 'Proper preparation, wander around 'among the mountains. And it is usually on the least dangerous heights that such per­ sons 'lose :their lives. Such accidents are usually attributable either to the oocountering of some sud· den change in weather OO'IlditiOons or to losing one's way. But these occurrences inasmuch 'as they cannot 'be chjtrged to the ac­ count of the mount'ains themselves, cannot be regarded as constituting mountain 'accidents in the true sense of the 'Word. The climber who starts out , alone is always in great danger. The slightest , a,ccident that can 'Pre­ vent him from going ahead can result in a f.atal catastr, oplle , Going alone should invanrebly be avoide d by every one 'save the most I thoroughly ex;peri­ enced and cautiou's mountain c1imlbers. Just her· e lies the greatest danger that mountain clim'bing conta ins. It sounds like a pamdox, but it is true tnat there is much , less danger in making a difficult 'ascent even when alone than there is in wandering around among the d'oothiJJs, for in the first the climber watches : his every step and the slight accidents that can disable him are therefore not liable t o occur.

"Gen. A. W. Greeley, chief signal "THY PILLOW SHALL BE EARTH." An Ancient Custom Still Continued by Orthod ox Jews. One branch of t he orthodox Jews stil l keeps up the custom which seems more than thirty centuries old . It is the laying of a dead man's hea.d upon a pillow filled with earth, and plac­ ing upon his face of an earthen plate or saucer broken into three pieces , one for the nose and one for each eye. Where a family is very wealthy the earth is brought from the Holy Land, and the mortuary plate from a potter's kiln not far from Jerusalem. It is made of a reddish clay, and is similar to those now dug up by the Palestine Exploration Fund laborers , To make the pillow and to !break the pl'ate into the thrjle conventional pieces demand considerable practice if not slrill, ' and give steady' employ­ ment to .a litt le wizened-up long­ bearded Polak Rabbi, who lives down in the "Bend " between Park Row and the Five Points. For the opulent, he has earth which he claims to have had imported from Palestine and plates which look as if they might have been made by the potters of King Solomon. But the well-to-do who follow out the old customs' are few in numbcr and thc majority of the faithful are not blessed with an excess of worldly goods, For them he has clean earth taken from a field of growing grain and plates made in some pottery not far from the city, The,re is no set rule respecting the earth. It may ,be laid in the coffin beneath the head of the dead man, and so form the pillow which is usually provided by Nature herself. Or it may 'be the filling of a linen or silken case on which is in­ scribed a line from the Torah or a figure of King Solomon's seal. How he breaks the plate is a secret which has come down to him through many generations. It formerly was done by a sword, afterward by it trowel, but today by a small ham­ mer . When the blow is st.ruck the fractured pieces should not be of the same size. Two should be small and somewhat circul ar in out line so as to cover the optic orbit , while the third should be · rather long and reach at least from the eyebrows to the end of the nose. The first part of the ceremony is easily understood. It ex­ presses the t radit ional saying, "Thy pillow shall be earth, " but what the or origin of the three ,pieces is not known to the otficial '--'j~"'"l(~;,;a1'rut-;a rtind ~~~~e la"' .:.:.:......... • .-_ . one of their scholars, I ~ a superstition once that the pieces of earthenware protected the soul when it made its final exit from the body, .which was supposed to occur within a short period after physical death , but there seems more reason for believing that the custom was of the same nature as the prac- tice still extan\ among some people of laying coins upon a dead man's eyes ,-New York E vening Post. CRUELTY OF GREED. Brutal Practices , of Russian Beggars D i sccw ered. It is impossible even to attempt to sl{etch the thQusand and one foolhardy things that inexperienced c lim'bers in­ dulge In in the foothills 'and , eve n in the higher mountains.

The conditions are everywh ere the same--absolutely insuffi'cient equipment and total ig­ 'I101'ance of even tbe fundamental rules of mountain climbing, Fully 95 per cent. at leaRt of the acc'idents that oc­ cur in the mountains 'befall these reck­ , less clamlberers over the foothiJIs and lower hei· ghfs. Theaccid'ents that oc­ cur during actual 'asc-ents anJ tours among the highest peak· s are not to b e 'compared in num~er with them. Ther-e 'are certain 'acci dents, however, that ·are liable to , befall the best as , well as the worst climbet'-o'angers that are objectiye and un'avoidab1e. These are avalanches and faIling of rocll!s or , bowld'ers , and sudden storms. The lat­ ter is 'hy far the greater danger, fo r avalanch'es and falls of stOone ane like­ ly to be encountered only in certain places 'and ,at oertain times of the year and can therefore be avoided with 'comparative certainty. As a fact., ac­ cidents from t h,ese two causes are ex­ ceedingly raN).

The majority of the acci r lents are, , huwever, 8ubjective and aVOoidable ; that is, they are accidents that have their cause in the absence of proper i1 elationship bet'ween the abilities of the climber . and the dim'cul ty of the tour he undertakes, In this category 'belongs the accident which for the aY'erag, e person constitutes the chief tmnng al l mnllnt.l' acciiiflnt.R- fl'1,lling oyer a precipice!

Much more dangerous as a rule are tours across the glaciers, inasmuch ao; t be accidents possible on such tours h'ave less the chara.cter of the subJec· tive than h: as the fall over a precipIce. A glacier is' a l,ways , a treacherous com­ panions. It concea,ls not only its cl1eV'asses nnner a deoeptiv· e Icrust of sliow, but it has in its upper and more slippery parts treacherous declivities the icy surfaces of which are covered , with loose sn'Ow that slips and carri€s the wanderers 'with it. 'Certain -dan­ gers t hel'efore threaten even the 'ablest mrountain c timber, .especially as r p gards the avoidance of them. TiIle experienced climber will recognire tbfl dangers much more quickly than. wiJ.l the inexperienced, and a danger rec­ ognized is in most instances a danger return to the valley and brillg help. The large mountain climbing societies the world over have organized in com­ mendable manner life saving stations, 'at which Jive mten who in systematic and thorough fashion undertnlce the saving of an injured climber the mo­ ment word of an acciden t is receiv· e tl. Ip the Alps, for ex'ample, s llch stations exist in Muni ch , Inns })ruch, and V'ienn-a. EqualJy important is the first help given Oon th'e s pot, If th'e hurt be but slight, frequently 'a light braciu g of the in.iur'ed limb with the monn t!!.in stick or sO'llle twigs will s uffice to en · able the unlucky climber t.o hobble to the neares, t town or mountain hut. Oth· ,erwiRe, one must be content to put the injured one in some spot where he will lie safely and, if possible , comfortably, 'stop any chance bleeding 'by binding the wounded extremity tightly, place drill'king , water 'and food close at hand, cover him with all the extra pieces of 'clothing one can spare, and then go tOo the V'aIIey for assistance. The assist· ants' then have tbe difficult task of bringing the injuredclim'ber down to the valley-a task that mak, es terrific demand s' upon the COUl'ag· e of those engag'eJ in it. 'ThankS -to th e excellent orgall'iz'ation of the life saving service, .many lives have 'been saved in the last few years. It w€t'e t o be wished, of 'course, that 'by the exercise of grea'er ~~ution the number of accide nts might be lessen· cd, 'and that the life savj ng societies might th us have' less fl'eq uent oppor· tunities for the len din g of Lhe i~ assist· ance.

Beaumont, Texas, Sept. 12.-Tonight one large oil-gusher in the 'burned oil­ field is still in fl ames.

An ex- amination leads to the 'belief that none of -the wells bas ,been per­ manently injured, The damage is es­ timated at $100,000. Century Before Last. A prior decree had been given for Benneville and another employe on the vessel named Rudolph. The other employes asked t o be allowed to come in on the decree, His lordship quoted an opinion holding that so long as the funds are in the hands of the court, others should be allowed in, and the money should be distrib­ uted pro rata according to the priori­ ties of the various claimants in their own class. Those of one class had had no priority over those of the same cla~s unlcss under a fully exe­ cuted decree. The claim of the mas­ ter is postponed to such seamen as were engaged by himself. The wages of the prior season are postponed to those of this season, The seamen en­ sign is not 'deprived of his lien.

SOUTH AFRICAN. rEp r NE ' COUNTRY' TO BE OPENED HORSE IS LOST . FROM A RAFT Route Selected For Trail to Promising New Two Animals Go Overboa rd While Steamer Is Pass ing and One of Them Drowns. District Northeast of Da wson­ Work by Miners. Robert L.

Grimes pluckily r lunged into tbe river and rescued one of the horses by bringing h'im bac! to the raft. The h orse lost is said to be wor·th $200. . A trail is to be built ur Moosehide creek to L~pine creek at once. 'l'he worl, ha" 'been authorfzed by Acting Governor Z. T. Wood after examining SUl'VP.'Ys of three routes made by En· gineer George EJwards. The sum of $2,500 is to be set aside at once for the trail. The work is to be done by the men working on Ler ine and vicinity. After the trail has been cut .and graded it will be subject to approval by the government, and when approv ed the men who have done the An entertainment [or the benefit of work will be paid t he money.

The question of fuel supply, which at fir st had been looked upon as a grave problem for the near fu­ ture,l was now settled [or all time, owing to the discover y of immense areas of ignite coal. Two big mines were being steadily worked, and Daw­ son City and the mining camps were well supplied. The coal sold at $25 a ton; wood was considerably Icheap­ er, but the supply would be exhaust­ ed in a comparativ'ely short time. He thought that the gold output would be about $15,000,000, .last year it was less than $20,000,000, the state­ ment that it totaled $24,000,000 be­ ing erroneous. He attributed these increases, as compared with former years, largely to attempts made to introduce new methods of mining, which had not been so successful as anticipated. Hydraulic mining, how­ ever, would soon be carried out on a large scale, and he believed that tht! result would be .a; considerable in­ crease in the output. Referring to trade matters , he said that while Canadians supplied 60 per cent.. of the $8,000,000 ' worth of merchandise which went into the Yukon a year ago, there was no reason why they should not control the entire sup' ply. Seattle ancl San Francisco mer­ chants were fighting hard to the trade upon which they had grown rich, but a little more energy on the part of Canadians wo uld result in their gaining it all. "And Canadians should have it," Major Woodside de­ clared emphatically; "the Territory is ours, and the trade will be if we want it." He estimated the resident population at the present time . at 20,000, every country in the world being represented, though the per­ centage of Canadians was larger now than in former years. The Govern­ ment was showing its faith in the country by the construction of excel­ lent roads and public buildings, and the population was equally confident and progressive. He would not, however, recommend young men to go into the country just now expect~ ing to find work easily.

Many Steamers Coming. , The ,Y ukoner leLt this a.fternoon with fifty passengers, all she could accommodate in her first class apart­ ments. The steamers Bailey, C~lumbian , Canadian and Whitehorse will be due tomorrow. It is possible that since the river is low some of them will not get in until tomorrow night or the next morning. The Victorian and the Selkirk are on the way down the river. The following passengers arrived on the Yukoner from t he outside last night: Mrs. E. Cole, Capt. and Mrs. H . D. Hulme, Mrs. E. B.

HELLGATE IS NOW A TERROR Steamers Again Grounding and Grat· ing on the Aggravating Shal­ lows Near Selkirk. Hellgate, the place on the upper Yukon with the name too truly sug­ gestive, is again a terror to the river steamers right at this most cri tical period of the year. The steamers, although not carry­ ing nearly as heavy loads as they did in the summer, are striking bars at Hellgate as though the river had no water in it. Nearly every steamer coming down grounds or grates at Hellgate, and some of them have hung up there several hours of late. The government has a force of men trying to work on the channel, but the crew is so small , and the appar­ atus at their disposal for work so inSignificant that progress is slow, and it is doubtful if anything of ben­ efit will be accomplished before the river closes. Some of the steamboat men sug­ gest the government get a steamer to assist the river forces in making channels. RESCUED CREW. British Steamer ArriveI' W:th Crew of Norwegian l'Iark.

DAWlSON WEEKLY NFlW" FRJjDAY, PC'roBER 3, 1902. one GOSSIP OF PAIlIS ~OSTO.N G~OV'P OF IMMO~TALS ARIS, Aug. 13. - Without ~ doubt had Parliament been in session a dangerous dis­ turbance might have broken out in F rance and Lhe "a Ll­ inet ovei·turned as a result of the de­ monstration over the closing of the schools of the religious orders. As it is, the safety of t he cabinet is un­ questioned and Premier Com bes is at leisure to take such measures as he chooses to restore order. Both the pope and the nonce bave remained pointedly silent during the conflict, which is another striking illustration of Leo XIII. 's desire to keep in peace with the government of the republic. Public opinion nevertheless has ob­ tained one important concession which is, t hat at least the sisters in charge of hospitals and other purely charitable institutions will be allow­ ed to remain unmolested for the pres­ ent. No doubt when things have calmed down a little many of the schools will be allowed t o reopen, al­ though it seems as if eventually the long talked of separation of the church and state must become a real­ ity. What the government particularly desires t o do is to satisfy the social­ ists, who are always cr ying for t he suppression of the r eligious orders, and to see just how far measures could be taken against the latter. It must be frankly admitted, however, that in the closing of the schools, and particularly in the manner of closing t hem, most glaring illegal i­ ties have been committed, and flag­ rant violation of the law may weak­ en the party now in power. The reason for . the popularity of the Catholic schools is not o- nly on ac­ count of the religious training given children attending them but on ac­ count of their superiority in instruc­ tiDn _ and accommodations. The relig- 11 f , j I j 1· i"1 i ~ i 'tl cal measures has cost t he govern­ ment two important elections, t hat of mayor of Marseilles and - that of deputy of Lille. The famous "cito­ yen~doctor," Flaissieres, a fierce so­ cialist, has just been beaten by Am­ able Chanot, a republican of the Me­ line coloring , while a nationalist re­ publican has been elected deputy of Lille in place of the deputy mortally wounded in a street fight the eve of his election. It is more than prob- 31ble also that on account of t he pres­ ent agitation all the disqualified na­ t ionalist deputies will be re-elect ed with bigger majorities. CamilIe PeIlctan, whose violent or­ atory worries the cabinet, has just declared that t he specter of clerical­ ism and reaction is rising up' with great vividness, but t he 'remps de­ clares the minister of the marine greatly exaggerates, and says the present is no time to alarm t he French people.

An incident which attracted much attention occurred in the relief bur­ eau of t he assistance publique of PariS, against which [or several years serious charges have been made not only of mismanagement and un­ willingness to relieve the poor, lJut of other abuses.

Perhaps the most curious thing about it all is that the fierce, anti­ elerical radicals all have their chil­ dren in religious establishments. Paul Doumer's sons are, and always have been, at the Jesuits' school. Giraull Richard, t he most violent of the anti­ clericals, is educating hi:s,' nephews , whom he has adopted as hiS' sons, in a religious school in Normandy, while Jaures' daughter attended a convent and recently took her first commun­ ion. Mme. Loubet and her daughter are t he most pious of women. Mass never was said so regularly at the Elyscc since Marshal MacMahon's time. The president's wife has had the st1a.tue of the Virgin Mary in the E lysee chapel cleaned and repaired and fresh flowers are kept constantly before it. The unpopularity of t he anti-cleri- around whom the greatest interest centres and about whom the most anecdotes are told, his stay in Eur­ ope having been marked by many episodes. On account of the combin­ a tion of architectural styles in the house, Schwab is jestingly accused of wanting his home to represent a "trust in styles." The idea of com­ bining several epochs has shocked the French artistic sense. Gerard , head of the postal and tele­ graph department, is actively engag­ ed in seeking to improve the French postal service. In order -to facilitate the collection of letters the postmen detailed to that work have been mounted on bicycles, and as their un­ iforms are quite gorgeous they add a picturesque note to the streets. Another reform is the introduction of a signal into the telephone service, and prohibiting the operators from interrupting conversations with" Are you t hrough'!" etc. According to the new regulations the operator must make t he connection and pay no more attention to the speakers until she gets the signal to cut of!.

' OAWSON RIFLES DO SHOOTING Probability a Range Will Be Establish· ed Here Soon, and Lads Given Target Practice. The Dawson Rifles may soon have a rifie range for their use i.n the practice of shooting. While Oapt. H. D. Hulme, commander of the Rifles, was on the outSide, he was given a promise that something would be done soon looking to the furnishment of all necessary supplies for the op­ ening and eqUipment of a first class range near the city. No range has ever been provided for the military organizations in and about Dawson, and little, if any, practice has been had here. Some have suggested that the high bluff opposite Dawson, above the Hubrick Dr. Keckeler at sixty possesses a unique distinction. He has circle(l the globe three times, has crol/sed the Atlantic sixty-two time:;, has lectured before scientific or?;.aniza­ tions or societies in E urope and Am-. erica, has been decorated by the Em­ peror of Germany and believes Amer­ ica is the home of a civi liz.ation older than that of Egypt. He claims to have found evidence of culture exist­ ing 7,000 yeaJ;s a go in America, the discoveries having been made during the course of an exhaustive scientific research. Dr. Keckeler insists that human character and traits are al­ most entirely the result of heredity . An expression by Dr. Keckeler, re­ lative to American affairs illustrates his belief in that direction . He said: "I believe that in Central America there are cities that ante-date the pyramids. I believe civilization orig­ inated in the west and in the course of time was carried to the eastern hcmispher\'l' ; that the civilized na­ tions of the west gradually died out while the growth was taking root in the eastern hemisphere. I believe that the Chinese and Indian · races were at one time analogous, though I cannot determine whether the red or yellow man is the original type." Though insisting he is not super­ stitious, Dr. Keckeler gives several interesting illustrations of the pos­ session of a peculiar intuitive facul­ ty. He says he had registered at the Metropolitan in New York, was sud­ denly impelled to change his quarters and the same night a fire destroyed the hotel. He was' to have made the trip on the Schiller when she was lost but was strangely infiuenced to alter his plans . Again he was about to leave on the Aurora for Egypt, but changed his plans The boat was wrecked. \ Upon his return from Alaska Dr. Keckeler will go to' Asia by way of Honolulu. He is to ad_ dress a society in Tokyo on scientific topics. FOUND. leOUND-On trall between Fortv-five mile ferry, would be a good place for a Roa.dhouse and Walker's Forks. false range.

Black was fined $2 and costs by lVIr. Justice Macaulay in the police court this morning, for being drunk and disorderly last night on Second A venue. Black pleaded guil· ty to' the accusation. Sergeant Smith, who- arrested Black, told of the circumstances leading up to his imprisonment. Black while drunk entered a drug store near the postoffice and refused to leave when requested by the pro­ prietor. The latter was afraid that Black would break something. When the sergeant arrlved on t he scene he told t he prisoner to go home but Black wanted t o argue the point. In answer to a question by the judge, Black said he had been up in court in 1898 .

NURSERY RHYMES FOR INFANT INDU'STRIES. Some Me'ans Taken to Educate People I Old King Coal was a jolly old sou'!, ture. The still more imposing harvest of Manitoba and the Territories, while a direct source of wealth to the prairie country, and a demonstration of its capacity certain to swell the volume of immigration, is also a source of profitable commerce to ol­ der Canada. In counting up our gains we must not take the prices re­ ceived by the producers alone, for both inland and lake transportation are Canadian enterprises and the in­ creased priee of grain goes to Cana­ dian productive industry. The railways and lake steamships are productive ent,erprises, and they do their part in furni shing the Brit­ ish consumers with wheat and other grain, their services being quite as useful and necessary as those of the men who plough and reap or make the implements of the farm , A large part of the ocean transportation may be to us foreign capital, but the con­ sumers on the ot,her side of the At- in British.

First of all, there was Lord Strathcona, who has done a kind of pioneer worl, in t he education of the young in the English schools. There were lectures, to be sure, and slides and the usual sort of advelftising, but Lord Strath­ cona thought out the idea of inter­ esting the young in the public schools in t he story and the scenery of Can­ ada by means at once of the printing press and the arts, And so His Lord­ ship had stories written and pictures painted and photographs taken, with the result that in the public schools for the first time there were lcssons which required an intimate knowledge of Canada, This might have been made fO'lfbidding, but the pictures and the quaint figures in colors were a strong provocation, and the charm worked. In a short time Canada was upon every lip, and the sending out of British journalists to receive il­ lumination is only one of the fruits of that wonderful enterprise with which the name of Lord Strathcona will always be associated. Following upon the heels of the journalists (if, indeed, there be any following in the matter), the War­ wick Trading Company of Loflclon, England, has sent out a number of representatives for the purpose of obt,a. ining a very generous series of pictures of the country which shall illustrate at once' the agricultural intelfests and the large and strenuous centres where life is lived pretty much as it is lived in England, The British journalists (who are, by the way, mostly Scotch) express· ed themselves as highly pleased with all they saw in the East, and the managers of the Warwick Trading Company said they had never entered a country which promised so richly. All Mr. George I-lam of the C. P . R. said today, between them all, Canada will no doubt derive benefit. The gentlemen of the press' will do their duty. although their enthusiasm will be dulled before they are through with their trip, while the photographic men will at every turn be serving the interests of the coun­ try ; so between the two agencies there is evelfY likelihood that tht Dominion will be the gainer .
