Want n Utli .Mill.
A. S. Douglass is hesitating as
to whether he will add a lath plant
to his wcll-coulptwd lumber mill
Parties have been urging him to
cither do that nnd leas: the plant
or cIm: jcrmit someone clc to put
up the plant, buy the slabs from
the mill, rent the mill jwwer, and
handle what is almost n waste prod
tict in n way to make some money
The party who is pushing the plan
of putting up his own mill would
have enough bu'incss to keep sev
eral hands at work, nnd .stuff which
now goes largely to waste or is
dlsjxjscd of for fuel cent Id le made
to return a profit. It Is highly

Yet eople will continue the
insane Idea of smoking. Compara
tively the smoker is shunned as is
a Chinese leper. It is a foolish
method of srp.mitlng from one's

SINCIi the number of emigrant
to this country has increased from
a quarter million In 1H95 to an esti
mated million in this year the mat
ter is tccciviug its annual discussion
with much consternation. b.ach

that hapciis to have 11 few dollars.
ICach year the subject is discussed
and soiiie steps taken to keep out
the rngshng of foreign countries:
yet it seems to have no effect Uxin
the steamer lines. The majority of
those brought here in the past five
yea is have landed heic with less
than five dollars in the jtockct and
most of them have remained here.
