A number of new locations have
been made recently in Greenwood

invariably showed enpper stains on
the surface, iron cups are the prominent features of the ground lately
slaked. It is impossible In estimate
how thick this capping as a general

somewhere on the wretchedly narrow

A VEXED QUESTION.
Tlle Spokesinan-lieview again raises
Unit muchly woriied question ai.enl
the truedeHiulinn of ihe iiitKiitntioiinl
boundary line.   It says:
"A prominent banister ot Nelson,
B.C., who visited iu lliis cily Ibis
week, slates that lhe mutter is of inure
than a little concern lo il.e people on
bis side of the line, and the general belief is Ihnt Ihe variation, on a line running east from the Pncilic c asl, is of
such a degi'cejts will place thu town of
Russland nearly Ihree miles sou lb of
the llllll parallel when once properly
established,"
Surely Ihere is a mistake here. If
lb., "prominent harrlsler of Nelson" is
quoted aright, he either has gained a
very erroneous idea of what is llle
general belief oo lllis side of Ihe line
regarding lhe question, or he is a
member of a liu.il ed bul despicable
class, who |,n gain popularity ur a
cheap notoriety, are not afraid when
visiting a country not their own lo
make rash or even uul run slaleiuents
r ,'ardlesH of consequences at lhe e. •

KBUEGER'S FAITH IN PRAYER.
This Hlory from lhe Transvaal hears
every indication of truthfulness, because, by Ihe photographs of old
Ki'ii.'ger, nnd by lhe accounts of his
iirhicveiiii-uts during lhe past year, it
is a clear case llial he does no. spend
any time in prayer without expecting
an answer. Tbe story runs ns follows:
Before lhe Transvaal was a republic
there was a famine in Ibe land, and a
parly was organized lo hunt thehnrte-
beesle. For days Ibe parly scoured
llle veldt ill vain. Then one of Ihe
Boers declared his ini.mi. u of rel'ilng
inlo lhe bush Io prny for succor, He
accordingly lefi lhe parly in company

the Boer relut'iii'd ..ml informed lhe

days' lime a very huge troop of linrle-
beeste would pass lhat way. Sure
enough, iwo days afler lhe promised
game appeared iii sight, and lhe Dutchmen made a greal haul. From that
moment the "ihiiii of prayer" hernine
lbe popular ban.. Thai was Paul
Ki'iiager, Some time afterwards the
native Who accompanied Kl'llrgi-r
staled that when Krueger entered lhe
bush be did not pray, but struck oul
