The National Cemetery at this place
is a pleasant place to visit. We re

Mr. Jas. Burke, the polite and efficient

this cemetery and along the railroad
embankment near it may be seen
large patches of Bermuda grass,, so
frequently and favorably mentioned in
agricultural periodicals. Here, tfee lawn
mower has kept it closely cropped and
it forms a dense matting on the ground
so much so that one in walking over
it is stronelv reminded of a Brussels
carpet. In a few years it will probably
supplant the prettier blue grass and
white clover, as it is a vigorous grower
and very tenacious of life.

tors, prior to the committee being appointed,
did tbe me thing. The committee bad re
ceived letters from Mr. Holmes, who they wore
told, was an undoubtedly respectable man, and
a man upon whose word they could rely. The
Chairman went on to read extracts from the let
ters, which gave a very encouraging account
of the value and prospects of- the mine. The
Chairman went oh to say that the men who
had the spending of the money at the starting
of the company were not happily selected. He
was desirous to avoid throwing atones, but he
did not think that the men were selected with
that amount of caution whfch one would exer
cise if dealine with one's own Drooertv. The
committee had interviewed Col. Cochrane, who
had been on the snot, and that erentlenmn
spoke rerr well indeed of the property. He
placed the highest reliance upon Col. Cochrane's
word as a ecntleman, but Col. Cochrane was
not a miner : therefore, he did not think that
Col. Cochrane was quite the man they ought to
get a report from. The Chairman went on to
refer to Mr. Emmons' work on North Carolina,
in which the author spoke highly of the aurif
erous capabilities of the Gold Hill property, and
stated that 400,0002. worth of gold was pro
duced from the property up to 1856. As he
(the Chairman) had not seen the mine, the
shareholders would not expect from him any
statement as to what the mine looked like ; but
from what he had heard from Mr. Holmes, Col.
Cochrane, and Mr. Walter Tregellas, the com
mittee thought it wise that the mine should
have another trial, and that they should en
deavor to find the money to send out a mining
manager who was worthy of the post. This
was a difficult job. The company was without
directors, without a secretary; it was really HkeH
a snip in the middle of the ocean without a
rudder. There was a committee, which would
go out ot otnee as soon as this meeting was
over. His own opinion was that there was
something in the mine. He himself was a hold
er of 100 shares, and of 200. worth of deben
tures, all of which he paid par for. The scheme
of reconstruction was shortly this that the de
benture stock with interest should be transfer
red to debenture stock in the new company for
the same amount, but that the interest in fu
ture- should be 5 per cent, instead of 10 per
cent. That the company should have the op
tion for two years from Christmas, of paying
the interest in cash or in fully paid shares
reckoning them at 5s. per share that was to
say, four shares to the sovereign ; therefore, if
a man had to receive 100, interest on deben
tures hew ull, if p lid in shares, receive 400
shares. There were 700 or 800 preference shares
and to the holders of these it was proposed to
give an equal number of the ordinary shares in
the new company. Then there were 102,000
shares which were held by various parties, a
arge number being held by the Chairman of
the last meeting or his estate. He was inclined to
think that those shares would be forfeited, as
the trustee would not pay upon them. It would
be left in the hands of the new directors to deal
with those shares in the best way they could in
the interest of the company. Ti.e committee
anticipated that the shares held by the share
holders proper would be paid upon, and it was
proposed to give them shares in the new com
pany with 17s. per share paid, leaving 3s. per
share to be paid up. That would give the new
company about 800. There was a certain num
ber of creditors to be paid, amounting in all to
1400. or thereabouts, so the new company
would have 6000. or 7000. of cash to start
with, and there were also 40,000. or 50,000. of
shares to be dealt with by the new directors,
which they would deal with in the best way
they could in the event ol the company want
ing more money. 1 he programme ot the com
mittee was that there should not be a lot of
miscellaneous charges upon this property. There
would be 15,000. of debentures, and all other
shares would stand as ordinary shares. He
strongly advised the shareholders to appoint
Mr. Holland as one of the new directors, who
ever the others might be. (Hear, hear.) What
ever decision they came to regarding the resus
citation of the company, the present company
must be wound up ; if not they would not get
rid of the fungi hanging about it.
In conclusion the Chairman moved

In Aprif, 1884; there appcaraed on my
feet and legs what the doctors called Salt
Rheum, which produced intense, suffering.
I tried a great many remedies, and had the
attention ot one of our best physicians, but
received no permanent relief. The dis
ease continued to grow worse and my
limbs were greatly inflamed. I wss finally
ind uced to try Swift's Specific, and after
taking four bottles relief came; 1 contin
ued, however, until I had taken seven
bottles, and am how sound and well, and
not a sigh of the disease left. My general
health has greatly improved, and I most
