Seattle, Wash., Aug. 2.���The steamship Willamette,advertised to sail from
Seattle to Dyea to-morrow, will not get
away until Thursday. When she does
sha will carry 800 people and 1100 head
of horses, tho largest load that ever
left this port. The steamship AIM

The above llatschedules the steamers
that left with passengers for the Klondike within the past two weeks, and
since the first great gold shipment ar-
arrived. This (loos not include steamships like the Dmatilla und State of

bound steamers. 'J be first two on the
list, the Allci and the Portland, ejtpeot

to river steamers for  tbe 8,000 mile
trip up tlmt river to Dawson City.

that unless there should be a late fall
on th"   Yukon, the river   may   freeze
over before they retch their destination.    Over  l.ooii applications wore
made for the 110 passenger accommodations afforded by the Excelsior, bul
tin- disappointed applicants sped on
north by rail und steamer to take some
of the Puget Sound steamers.
It, is said that the freight Is already
piled so high at Dyea that there Is
more there than all the lnoians in the
region can carry over the Cliileoot
pass before winter. Still, in the face
of all this, new boats nre being bought
or chartered for more trips in August,
to add to the 17_U passengers already
carried up by the nine above mentioned
Steamers. Among tbe prominent men
who have left Washington for tho
Klondike is John II. MoGraw, ox-fjov-

to attempt to represent this section in
the Klondike this winter. Thoy are

Kaslo store and a prominent baseball
man; Mel. Yates, formerly proprietor

their apprehension, if they have
any, by remarking that last winter was
considered a mild one on the Klondike

Mounted Police Turn Hark Klomlikers.
Victoria, B. ('., Aug. 2.���Tho steamer Queen arrived from the north on her
return trip this morning. She brought
no late news from the mines, but reports that the mounted police of tho
Northwest Territories are meeting all
people bound for the Yukon country
at tho British line, beyond White and
Dyea passes, and compelling all who
have not a yoar's supply of provisions
to return to the coast.
Over 400 people are camped at^Skag-
uaway bay and 50 at Dyea. They are
unable to have goods taken in to tho
1 akes, as the packers can not handle
the business. There will be a terrible
c rush there when the boats whieh loft
here after tf��e Queen, six in number,
arrive there. It is safe to say that not
half the men will get away from Skag-
uaway bay this year, and even with
the large number of horses on the way

He says that in the rapids last year on

san Pranoisoo, Aug- 'i.- Recent advices from Peru, which have been confirmed by c. Do Miranda, n petroleum
magnate now in this city, state that
the wonderfully rich strikes reported
from the Klondike region have been
totally eclipsed by the fabulous discoveries of gold in tho Bouth American
republic. Tliere no longer seems to be
any doubt that the famous Inea gold
fields, which have been considered as
myths among tbe intelligent people of
Peru, have at last been discovered.
The location of the newly discovered
bonanza is in the departments of CusCQ
and I'una, in the eastern border ofthe
country, which have long been famous
for their richnoss in   precious metals.
Among the successful prospectors in
the now fields is a Californian named
Harrison, who left Sao Francisco two
years ago in search of petroleum and
penetrated into the interior. In.ltiue
last lie took out of ono of his many
claims 270 pounds of gold, and many
Englishmen are reported to have been
equally lucky.
City of Mexico, Aug, 4,���II Is predicted hero that when the gold placer
mining   Is   developed   in   the state of
Guerrero, more gold will he taken out
than in the Klondike region. Some
placer mining is being done with excellent results and labor'is cheap nnd
water abundant,even In the dry season.
One miner, an old Culiforuian, reports
taking out $24,(00 in gold in May. and
his average is 116,000 per month. The
Indians in Sonora, who work in a crude
way in tho local gold placers, only operating when in pressing need of
money,got large returns for little labor,
and an explorer who has recently been
through tho remotest regions, utates
that Sonora will oqual California Lp
her palmiest days, as a gold producer.
Hermosilla, Mexico, Aug. 1.���After
a long wait, a party of Californian
pros pec tors who two years ago went
into the Yaqui Indian conntry, west of
here, and discovered rich gold placers
on Batepito niver, have secured title
to the property, and havo begun to
work it. Pour members of the party
have already taken out *140,o00 worth
of gold,
The most brilliant society event In
the history of thisjyoung city was the

program, and many of tlie ladies and
gentlemen wore in full evening dress.
The stage was handsomely decorated
with Sowers and lla;;s. and the elegant
toilettes of the. ladies added beauty to
the decorations of the hall. The follow lug program was very well presented and enthusiastically received:

The townslte of Sanca, about 18 miles
south of Pilot Bay, 00 the   west,   shore
of Kootenay Lake, was located In Jane
of last year. Owing to some difficulty
over the ownership, nothing was done
toward building up the town. Arrangements are now being perfected,
however, whereby all difficulties will
be settled and ste] a taken within a few
days to put lots on the market and
push matters vigorously.

there has been added a Wethey calcining
furnace of a daily capacity of 50 to 55
tons of ore, nnd a reverberator^ mutling
furnace, the hearth of whieh is 35 feet
long. This has increased the capacity
from about 300,000 to 800,000 pounds per
month. Other Improvements are in contemplation which will bring the capacity
up to nt least 1,000,000 pounds of fine
copper per month.

cars which are pulled still farther up by
steam power. A flume over two miles in
length carries water for the sluices. After one week's work a clean up resulted
in $2100. This was an especially good
run but enough is cleaned up each week
to make the enterprise decidedly profitable.

your correspondent me>t W. DeV. Le
Malsfcre, a young; barrister from Trail,
who furnished some Interesting Information regarding- the mines tn the vicinity of Waterloo, on the Columbia, a
few miles south of Robaon. He said in
the vicinity of the town there are a
number of claims which are showing
up well, one ln particular, the Bryan,
located on September 26, 1896. While
but little aside from assessment work
has been done, the showing ls remarkable, some of the assays going as high
aa 1125 ounces ln silver and S5 ln gold.
TMb camp received somewhat of a setback when the Home-Payne syndicate
threw up their bond on the Apaohe
group, but notwithstanding this the
owners of claims still have faith that
itb�� oamp is a good one and the work
of development goes forward.
The owners of the Maud S. claim are
about to dhiip eight tons of ore to the
Trail smelter.
The Ontario, owned by C. W. Ide and
other Spokane parties, has an excellent
surface showing, and why work has

youth of America. No ono is enlisted
who cannot pass n severe medical examination, or who Is nol acceptable as

So great is the conservatism and ox-
clUBiVenesS in some regiments thnt
members lire actually selected, precisely ns they would be elected by n club,
and four or live black bulls will exclude u recruit. The term In this country is not "nn officer and a gentleman"
���as In Europe, but "a soldier and a
gentleman"���by tbe term "gentleman"
being meant not a person who is not in
trade, but a person with the milliners
mid feelings of a gentleman, nnd no one
who Is likely to disgrace the (iuiird Is
admitted. If a mistake Is made the
mun Is expelled, as from n club, and
expulsion Is a disgrace keenly felt.

Man doth not live by bread only.���
Deut. vllb-3. That Is as true us tbe
gospel from which It Is taken. Man
lives for the most part ou whatever be
can get bold of, tho flesh of bird, beast,
fish and Insects, the nuliiiiil nnd vegetable kingdom are ransacked to tickle
his palate, nnd the clnyeaters of Hie
Carolina! oven tackle the mineral kingdom in search of sustenance. But if
man does not live on bread alone ue can
on milk alone, nnd this publication
brought to the front Mr. W. IP, Kltzole,
of Turlington, lown, whose picture accompanies this article, who offers himself as an "awful example" of the
nutritive properties of tbe Juice of the
cow. Mr. Kll/.ele has subsisted on milk
for the last twenty-five years right
along. Mr. Kllzole bus not only demon-
strnted that man can live ou milk alone
but lie has solved the problem of cheap
living, lie pays 5 cents n quart for his
milk, and as he lives on three quarts a
dny be can live on lfi cents a day, $1.05
a week, or $57.(1(1 a year.
Mr. Klt/.olo has not always lived on
milk. Twenty-five yours ago, when he
wns nn Irresponsible Infant, he drunk
concentrated lye not as a steady tipple, but just once. In the words of the
song, "Once was enough for him." He
gave up lye and took to milk as n more
soothing If less exciting bevernge.
Kver since Mr. Klt/.elc filled up on
lye he bus boen unable to eat solid
lood.    Occasionally he hns tried to do
so, imt with most uncomfortable results. Whenever be has succeeded In
swallowing the smallest piece of meat
or other solid food he hns been unable
to take n drink of water until the
offending morsel was ejected. He bus
not experimented for a long time now,

It proved tolerably effectual., although
from the amount of ladling that was

Curiouu Dinner at Jerloho.
An American traveling ln Jerusalem
describes an Interesting dinner he ate
recently at a hotel In Jericho. "We sat
on the porch of the hotel at Jericho,"
he wrote, "after a dinner at which we
were served with butter from Norway,
cheese from Switzerland, marmalade
from London, wine from Jerusalem diluted with water from the well of Ell-
sba, raisins from Bamoth Gilead, oranges from Jericho (ln no respect Inferior
to those from Jaffa or the Indian river,
Florida), smoking Turkish tobacco,
which, like tbe Turkish empire, is Inferior to its reputation, and a cup of
coffee from���the corner grocery ot Jericho."

fcut December Mr. Ward, of Harvard

opportunity to observe the forruatbn of
clouds In the atmosphere nbovu the

three hundred glowworms at Kyoto,

Artificial Diamond* Once More.

whose receut visit to this country
awoke fresh Interest ln his experiments
on making artificial diamonds by fusing charcoal nnd Iron together ln his

black In color, but now nil are white.

Kxp'oalnn Under the Ocean.
Investigations concerning tho great
sea-wave which suddenly swept ln
upon the coast of Japan with terribly
disastrous results last June have, it ls
reported, convinced Mr. Igl, of the
Japanese College of Science, thut the
cause of tbe phenomenon wns a volcanic outburst at the bottom of the
ocean. He locates the point of explosion alMMit 200 leagues enst of the
const of ViisiilhiiniH, aud thinks It was
comparable with the great eruption
that blew the Island of Kmkatoa to
pieces lu I.nnh. It Is wild that the temperature of the sen-water in the neighborhood of the place where tho explosion t_, though to have occurred, was
found to be 3 degrees above the normal.
KAVct of I.itrht on Plants.
The attention of botanists has lately
been recalled to experiments made nt
Juvlsy, near Turin, by Monsieur Flam-
uinrlon on the effect of exposlug the
seedlings of sensitive plants to lights
of different colors. Having plnced four
pairs of mimosa seedlings ln four separate pots In a hothouse, he covered one
pair with a bell of blue glass, another
with a bell of green glass, a third
with a bell of red glass, while tbe
fourth was left exposed to ordinary
white light At the end of two mouths
the plants subjected to blue light were
only one inch high, having hardly
grown at all. Those exposed to white
light were four inches high, those that
had grown In green light were live
Inches high, while those whose light
trad been red were no less than sixteen
Inches high. Experiments with other
.tnds of plants gnve various results,
but ln every Instance blue light Impeded growth and development.
A Meteoric Bomb.   .
Several remarkable meteors, seen ln
and around New York City on the
afternoon of December 4th last, were
the subject of discussion at; a recent
meeting of the New York Academy of
Sciences.    One passed  over  Central
Park, one was seen from the Brooklyn
Bridge and one appeared at Fordhnm.
At nenrly the same hour a meteor
passed over Passaic, Irvlngton and
Dnnbury, Connecticut, and one burst
near Railway, and apparently came to
the ground ln four pieces. From a
study of the reports concerning these
phenomena It hns been suggested thnt
the bursting meteor seen nt Rahway
was a fragment of the body which Intel
passed over Passaic; that the meteor
again separated into nt least threo
parts, one of which shot over Irvlngton
and Dnnbury, another over Fordhnm
nnd the third over New York, hut
where they struck tho enrth ls nol

An old camper-out once related to a
horrified housekeeper his experience of
dlsh-wnshlng lu a miners' camp. It did
not take much time, though the com-1
puny was numerous nnd the utensils
of the kitchen were In constant use.
The reason why it took but little time
he sufficiently Indicated by the statement thnt the cook-pot was not cleaned
till It became too small to hold a pudding of rensounble size. Then somebody got a hammer nnd knocked off the
hardened accretions from Its Interor.,
till It was restored nearly enough to its
original capacity to render further service.
In Tory Island, nn out-of-the-way bit
of un Irish islet, and Indeed to a less
degree throughout Donegal, the natives,
are not much more dainty In their Hv-
lug, and their habit of letting the
grounds remain Indefinitely In their
teapots has disastrous consequences.
"Every day and all day long," says u
recent writer, "the teapot sits stewlnij
In the embers of tlie heurth, and ut each
successive brew fresh tea ls thrown In,
but tbe old Is never thrown out until
the pot is choked." The result Is nn
unusual and excessive rate of Insanity.
Little wonder, when a Tory Island boj
who was questioned as to his usual
meals, could reply:
"Stirabout for breakfast and tny for
dinner; tay, av course, nt tny-tlme, and
stirabout for supper. Whiles we have
tny for breakfast Instead and stirabout
for our dinner, and then another sup of
tay before bedtime."
However, this diet, Injurious ns It Is
to the nerves, does not seeih to nffect
the muscles. The Tory Islanders are n
robust and vigorous race, the men averaging six feet ln height and the women
unusually tall nnd strong. The women,
Indeed, have need of all their physical
strength, since It ls they who do the
bulk of the outdoor work, while the
men stny at home and spin nnd weave.
"At Anngry Strand on a Sunday
morning," says the same observer, "one
may witness a strange sight. At low
tide more than a mile of roundabout Is
saved by wading across n narrow bay.
The men Include In their Sunday's
wardrobe shoes and stockings. Tho
women, by courtesy and custom, wear
'mnrtyeens'���footless stockings with a
loop passing over the toe. Each good-
wife takes ber goodmun upon ber shoulders, and the heroes are conveyed
across dry-shod."
The Annual rt!i_riiimi;i- to Meem Regarded wltb Apprehension.
A chronie menace to the health of Asia
and eastern Europe is the annual pilgrimage of pious Moslems to Mecca. More
threatening than ever it appears this year
on account of the presence in India of a

It, falls this year on the llit'li of May, at

nnd surround their homes with refuse and
filth and foul the water supply. If n disease such as cholera or the bubonic plague

wildfire. The constant cause is the drinking of cholera polluted water.
Among tlie religious ordinances which
to the Mohammedans are commands is
that of pilgrimage to Mecca. Every male

some time in his life make the pilgrimage. Any time before lie dies will answer. From Turkey, from a belt of country extending eastward across Asia to the

the whole of Africa, pilgrims set out every

of a pilgrimage of ln.lsill persons, of
whom more than one-half never returned,

The chief source of danger in Mecca is
the.famous Zomzem. the reputed "Hugur's
well," where it is supposed she drew water
for her sun Ishmael. At the best of

Mice Which Hunt Birds.
A .voting woman living In Harlem was
the owuer of a canary bird Inst week
that could do anything canary birds on ti
do. This bird's name woe Speck, and
tbe way he could sing was a marvel to
listeners. It was not the loud, ear-
breaking sound of ordinary canary
birds, but a "sweet, tuneful murmur"
that this bird made. Ou Thursday
morning, Just as the sun begun to crawl
down the door of her room, she beard
the bird ln the adjoining room end Its
song in a eort of gasping cry. When
she got time she saw a mouse on tbe
bottom of the cage with the bird's
throat In its long teetb. Tbe bird was
fluttering, but soon died, nil the mouse
fled in alarm. It le not of tt j that caged
birds are attacked with mice, but sucb
things have happened. A rat was one
time seen to still hunt sparrows on a
New York pier.
Folly of Military Staffs.
As the various Got eruorw rode by on
horseback ln the Grant memorial dny
parade, ea/ch lu plain dress, but attended by a brilliant military staff, tbe
question wns natural, what is the use
of all that? Why should the executives of States of the union be organized on the bn.wis of sonorous tiles
and gny Uniforms? The national ex-
ooutlvo is simplicity Itself In Its (Jem-
noraUo uupretentiiiusness. The executives of the great American mun-
ielpalltlos present tlii'iiuselves before tlie
public with the dignity of quiet reticence. Our BtBfbe Governors alone In
American public life swing out with a
parade of unrealities. If the (iovernor
of a Htnte were Drsl of all n military
officer, if the States were primarily
arni'il ciinips instead of citizens In
business, then the inllltnry staff would
have a ronsonn bleu ess. Aa It Ls, Uils
prancing nnd betltled rtaff la both Irrational and absurd. The efficiency of
thes'> assistants Of tbe Governor would
be as great without uniforms nnd unmeaning titles. The dignity of the
Stato e.vciitlve needs no bracing of it
foolish luiltnfloii of a foreign court to
inukp it resisxned by the people. The
crentlon of fake "generals" and "colonels" by a Governor's pen. hundreds
of them a year, Is rightly exasperating
to the honored men to whom those
titles belong by service and devotion.
That bronzed and keen soldier of Jn-
pan, Prince Yaniagnta, when be visited
us a year n,go, found these Imitation
colonels and generals who welcomed
thim Tor the State tn their brave uniforms very amusing. They had never
smelled powder; most of them had not
even served anni'tironlsuus. Glitter
does no harm, bat such unreality as the
"military stnff" Is out of place ln this
day.���Illustrated American.

Thrilling experience of Gay Kecikr
In u Tolly Creek (iliider.
"] came to the Kootenay Hi years ago
and thought I had been in some tough
situations, before: bill my recent prospecting experiences near tho head
waters of Pry and Toby creeks were
tlie roughest I have ever undergone,"
said (lay Reoder to a News man a few
days ago.
Mr. Reeder went on to state that on
his recent trip ho climbed mountains
alone for 36days with a pack on his
back, and for 27 days didn't see a white
man. While attempting to cross a
glacier at the head of Toby creek, lie
slipped and lost his fOoflng and
brought up at the bottom of a small
crevasse that ho estimated to be 10
feet deep. After recovering from the
Stunning effect of his fall und finding
that no bones were broken he began
to try to work his way out. This was
no easy matter. He was hemmed in
between two walls of blue ice. The
noise caused by the grinding of the
glacier as its parts of icj and boulder
wore against each other, was deafening', or us Mr. Hcedci'says, ''like a 20
stamp ore mill." The cold was
intense and through the unconscious
moistening of his lips with his tongue.
he found by the time that ho got out
that his lips were frozen Stiff. Their
blackened condition still hears testimony to that fact. Uy following the
crevasse to its upper end, he found that
it terminated in an inclined plane,
very steep, but still sufficient inclined
to permit him to climb and scramble
out. He was in tho crovesse an hour.
He estimates the width of the glacier
as ranging from half a mile to a mile
and its length al seven miles.
Mr. Reeder located two goods claims
near the bead waters of Pry and Toby
creeks, which ho th Inks are rich in
copper and galena.

The News is informed on very reliable authority, that apart from finishing his road from Trail to Robson, Mr.
Hoinzo will build no more railroad
this year. On his Rossland-Ponticton

but it was staked out as far west as
Christina Lake. Ho 16 much cut up at
his treatment received at the hands of
the Dominion Parliament, through
the lack of support by British Columbia members, and especially by the.

were present,
A communication was read from the

a protest to the Dominion government
against putting an export duty on ores.
This was placed on lile.
Fire  Department N'oM'H.
An accident insurance company applied to the city to insure the lives of
the volunteer fire brigade. It was
tabled for the present.
The clerk was instructed at the second meeting to call for tenders for the
construction of a building for fire brigade purposes, according to the specifications already before the council.
The finance committee recommended
the payment of a number of bill, including one of $4011 to .lohn Vallanee
for covering city water pipe; one of
i|245 to D. C, McGregor for A avenue
sidewalk and one of *_4"> to the Kootenay Kloctric company for street
lights for March and June.
Sanitary Notes.
Tho report of Dr. .1. I'\ B. Rogers,
health officer, was read. He recommended stricter sanitary regulations
with reference to local drainage, garbage and other refuse matter. The
sanitary committee were inaccordanci
with its recommendations empowered
to use the police or employ a sanitary
Inspector to enforce wholesome regulations in this respect.
A petition was received from Otto
Wollinun and 31 others asking that
some other means be provided for tbe
dumping of the city's garbage, rather
than on the beach. This was referred
to the sanitary committee.
New Hitleivitlk for 11 Avenue.
It was ordered that lumber bo furnished for a three foot plank sidewalk
on the north side of D avenue from
the east end of the skating rink to the
east line of F. E. Archer's residence:
also crossings for D avenue and Third
street provided that the property holders furnish the labor.

The clerk was instructed to notify
the Electric Light company to discontinue tho current supplying the are
lights on account of the unsatisfactory
condition of the service. It is thought
that when tho machinery is finally repaired satisfactorily that all will be
well again Ln this respect.
��� 12,000 for Improvement*.
A petition was received from S, II.
Green and _!> others representing one-
tenth of the taxable property of Kaslo,
asking that the council puss a bylaw
to raise 112,000 for street Improvements
and the building of a bridge across the
rivet at Third street. Mayor Green
expressed himself as not in favor of
grunting the petition as it stands.
There ought to be provision also included, ho thought, for the extension
of tho water system and lire proleclinn.
If all this money had to be spent for
streets and bridge and no other purpose, ho was opposed to it.
Alderman Buchanan was not -nre
about tho need of a bridge. lie believed that the water system should be
e xtcndod llrst. He further thought
that no ono bylaw could cover all the
different propositions.
The petition was llnally received and
filed away for further consideration.
The Second Mctttigi
The second meeting convened last
Monday with Alderman Buchanan in
the chair. Alderman Moore, Cameron
and (ioodonough completed the

The sum of $50 was allowed for improvement of the alley between Third
and Fourth streets in block 17.
The  Kane   Toi Mutter Settled
The matter of Geo. T. Kane's judgment against the city and his arrears
in taxes was; finally settled on the basis
recommended by the special committee and noted in a previous issue of the
News. Brieliy summed up this includes the recognition by the city of
the court judgement in Mr. Kane's
favor and the purchase from him of
nine lots in block 2.") for $4_8, Mr.
Kane agreeing to pay all taxes in arrears against him. This is a welcome
settlement and relieves considerable
property of blemishes on titles.
Clerk's Salary Itiii.eil
City Clerk Chipman's salary was
raised from $76 to $100 per month dating from July 1. 1H1I7. it is generally
understood that Mr. Chipman will ask
to be relieved from the extra office of
police magistrate as soon as his successor can be found. The News is in possession of the name of a man whom
tho council would like to appoint as
police magistrate but as it is doubtful
if he would accept, his name is withheld from publication on request.
The H. ft S. I', xe nipt I tin Bylaw Completed
The council then went into committee of the whole on bylaw Xo. 411, re.
the exemption of certain lands of tho
Kaslo .t Slocan Railway company.
The bylaw was finally completed and
referred to City Solicitor McAnn for
his opinion. This bylaw is to be

i in Sunday evening last Dr. Bobsrt-
son, superintendent of Some Missloni
in the Canadian   Presbyterian ohutoh
preached a rousing sermon in the local
church of this oily. A very large audience listened to tbe reverend gentleman a eloquent sermon on the words of
St. Paul, "lie nut weary in well doing."
The oooasslini was taken advantage of
to ordain three elders to form a Session
for the Kaslo congregation. The new
elders who were elected by the congregation were ordained and had the iihiial
questions put to them by Dr. Robert
son. Very impressively he orilaiuen
them to their office and suitably addressed them as well as the congregation. This step places the congregation on the footing of a fully qualified
church, with full ]iower to transact all
its own business. Dr. Kobertson expressed much pleasure at the marked
success of the Presbyterian church
of Kaslo since the Rev. James Nairn
took charge of it six months ago. Dr.
Robertson visited Aiusworthon Monday and addressed a meeting there.
The Rev. James Nairn will preach
in the Presbyterian church on next
Sabbath eveniiig_oti the topic "Presbyterian, Methodist, English and Baptist churches--which is nearest tin-
teachings of Christ?" Singing is always good and hearty and it will be interesting. Service will not last longer
than one hour.

DO believe that my uncle is the
moat selflsb man who ever
lived!" exclaimed Bob Ourzou.
"What bas be done uow, dear?" Inquired Cicely, who was not unaccustomed to hear condemnatory remarks
respecting that gentleman.
"Why, lu tlie first place, darling, as
you are only too well aware," replied
Bob, "he refused his consent to our being married, ou the score of my youth."
"Well, dear Bob, lie may have been
right there," said Cicely, Boothingly.
"Twenty Is a little young to get married, isn't It?"
"Not a bit," answered Bob, impatiently. "If a man doesn't know his
own mlml at 20 he never will."
"But you may see some girl whom
you will prefer to me," suggested
Cicely. "Somebody who Is better looking, or more accomplished."
"What nonsense!" exclaimed the
young man, Irritably. "Do you think
I'm a boy, to change my mind every
Ave minutes?"
"0, no, dear," replied Cicely, caressingly, "but such things have happened,
you know, and though It would break
my heart to lose you, I would rather
you found out youwlidn't love me before we were married tluiu afterwards."
"But I do love you, my own little
sweetheart, nnd always shall, auu we'll
get married in spite o all the old cantankerous uncles in Christendom."
And as Bob spoke be placed his arm
around her and drew the young girl's
head down ou his broad breast.
Robert Ourzon was a student in St.
George's Hospital, and Cicely was a
nurse probationer at the same establishment, aged respectively -o and 19.
They hud fallen in love with one another some six months previously, and
Bob had at once written home to his
uncle, Major Main waring, who stood in
loco pareutis to him, ns he was an orphan.
There was very little opportunity for
making love In the hospital, but the
young people were In the habit of meeting lu the park whenever circumstances permitted, and it was on n secluded seat that the conversation we
have recorded took place.
After a short Interval, devoted to
What the novelists of a previous generation were In the habit of calling
"tender passages," Cicely drew herself
gently away from ber lover's embrace,
aud putting her hat as straight as the
absence of a looking-glass would permit, inquired:
"What Is this fresh news from your
ogre of an uncle, dear?"
"Why, I heard the other day," re-
uponded Bob, "that lie was dangerously
ill, had a fall while hunting, and so I
thought It would be a splendid opportunity while he wns weak and ill to
get his consent to our being married;
an dhere ls the communication whlcu
I received this morning In reply."
And pulling a letter out of his pocket,
Bol) extracted the contents from the
envelope, aud read the following
"Honored Sir���I hns boen derected by
youre uncle, Major Muinwariiig, to
arnswer your letter He tells me to
say as how be can't write himself, but
be will se you, something ns I don\
like to put on paper, llrst, afore he lets
you marry afore youre twenty-Uve.   He | ought to put down my foot"
esceut, I can tell him who I am."
"What would be the good of that?"
asked Bob.
"Why, of course, dear, he would be
bo grateful that he would at onee give
his constant to our being married."
"Ha! ha! ha!" laughed Bob. "O, you
little goose! you don't know my Uncle
"You are unkind, Bob," said Cicely,
drawing herself away from him.
"Don't l>e cross, little one, I couldn't
1 dip laughing, -'pou my word, I couldn't."
"But I've read of such things, Bob."
"Oh, yes, I dare say, lu novels."
"Yvell, uiey do take place in real
"Sometimes, p'r'aps, but "
"Don't you think I'm a good enough
nurse, then?"
"My dear Cicely, you are the best
nurse lu the hospital���for a probation-
o- " interrupted Bob, perceiving that
.he conversation was taking a wrong
turn.   "Every one acknowledges that."
"Then why won't you let me go down
an_ see what I can do?"
"Well, my dear, I don't mind, of
course," replied Bob, slowly, "but do
you really think it will be of any use?"
"I shouldn't have si.jgestetl it unless
I did."
"I must say that I think it will be
lalior in vain; but still, if you wish to
tr your hand at diplomacy, I suppose
I must consent."
"There's a sensible darling!" cried
Cicely, putting her anus round his neck
and kissing him. "And now I will
show you what a woman can do."
Major Mainwnring was what Is
known as a confirmed bachelor. When
Jabez introduced the young nurse, who
had come to him on the recommendation of his nephew, his llrst muttered
remark was:
"I hope to goodness she won't start
tidying things up."
Only one who has been left to the
tender mercies of a soldier servant for
nearly a week can imagine the difference Which a couple of days made, not
only in the Major's room, but In the
Major, aud noliody was more surprised
than that gentleman himself when he
found how much "the woman's tricks"
as he somewhat contemptuously expressed It, added to his comfort.
Cicely had her surprise also, for Instead of a worn-out, decrepit old man,
such aA she had expected to Hud htr
lover's uncle, she discovered that he
wag a handsome man in the prime of
life, and though he wns evidently suffering Intense pain from his fractures
and contusions, yet he bore It nearly ns
uncomplainingly as a woman would
have done.
The weeks slowly gilded away, and
the Major gradually grew stronger.
One morning he said In an apologetic
"I am going to nsk you to to do me a
favor, Cicely."
"Certainly, Major," responded Cicely,
with the sunny smile that made her
Invaluable as a nurse.    "What Is It."
"Why, I want you to write a letter
for me to a scapegrace nephew of mine.
The truth Is, this fellow has been trading on the fact thnt he la my only living relative ever since he knew the
value of the relationship, and at last I
think  the  time  hns  arrived   when  I
also scs as how you beta mixed up lu
It like, ort to no were to get lilm a good
uersc, and your to send hliu down can
manege him. I also sends cheq as desired, and remain, youre obedent servant, JABEZ BUNUER."
"He's the old man's valet and factotum," explained Bob, afl he finished
reading the letter. "And now, don't
you think that It Is the most selfish lottery you've ever heard?"
"Well, dear, I think you ought to
make allowances "
"Book nere, Cicely," Interrupted Boo,
"1 know this man, nnd you don't. I'm
the son of his favorite sister, and the
only relation he has In the world; he's
an old mun, who can't expect to live
much longer, who's had lots of fun ln
bis day, been In the army In India, and
a.i that sort of thing, you know, and
} i he���er���er���behaves In this sort of
way. I conslirer th. . It's disgraceful.
I i hae had his turn; why can't he let
me have mine?"
"Bob, I've got an Idea," exclaimed
Cicely, suddenly turning round and
taking his hand ln hers as she spoke.
"Bet us have It, my dear," answered
Bob, In that patronizing manner which
very young men are fond of assuming
ln their dealings with the opposite sex.
"It may suggest something, don't you
"My Idea, Bob, Is this: Your uncle
wants a nurse; let me go down and attend him, and when I've restored him
to beattli and he ie completely conval-
"What has he done, then?" Inquired
Cicely, endeavoring to conceal the agitation which she felt.
"The young vagabond Is a medical
student at St. (icorge's; but, of course,
you are aware of thai, as he sent you
down here���the only good turn lie has
even done me lu hlg life, by-thc-byi.���
and I have always made him a generous allowance. In addition to this, I
have paid his debts twice. And now
he writes to say that unless he has a
certain sum by to-morrow morning to
pay big 'debts of honor,' as he terms
them, he will Im; ruined for life. Now,
I have made up my mind not to let him
have any more money beyond bis Income, and I want you to write aud tell
him that as he hag broken hlg word of
honor, when he promised ine on the last
occasion not to gamble again, I must
decline to have anything to do with
his debts of honor."
Cicely took down the nddress and
made notes of what she had to write;
but, strange to say, almost immediately afterwards she met with an accident and rnn a pin into her thumb lu
such a way as to prevent her holding
a pen, and the communication had to
be written by Jnbez after all.
A few days after this Cicely had
been reading to him, when the Major,
after a short Interval of silence, exclaimed:
"The doctor gays I may get up tomorrow, Cicely, and that lias made me
"What have you been thinking
about?" demurely asked the prettj
"1 have beeu wondering what oi
earth I shall do when you leave m<
and go back to town."
"Just what you did Iiefore I came, 1
suppose," replied the young lady, Intently regarding tlie binding of tlu
H>ok she was holding in her lap.
"No, I can never do that," said th��
Major. "When 1 was a young man,
Cicely, I wns very fond of a girl; In
fact, we were going to be married, but
the week before she was to have become my wife she ran away with a
friend of mine, a lieutenant in the same
regiment as myself. Since then I have
hnd a somewhat bad opinion of women, and you must acknowledge with
reason, but you have altered all that,
"How���er���In what way, Major Main-
waring?" faltered Cicely, growing rap-
Idly "red as a rose."
"Why, I can see thnt though there
are bad women in tlie world, there are
also good ones, and the man who manages to get hold of a good one for his
wife, cannot obtain a greater treasure,
and I'm going to ask you if you will be
my treasure?"
"But, Major Mainwaring, I am only
a nurse���a hospital nurse���what will
your friends say?"
"My dearest girl, you have saved my
life, and In my opinion you possess all
the graces and virtues that a woman
ought to have. If I marry a girl, I do
it to consult my own happiness, not
thnt of my friends. I know I am twice
your age, but in spite of that, I am a
young man still; uow say, dear, will
you marry me?"
"Are you sure you love mo?" asked
Cicely, in a low voice. "That you are
uot asking ni_ to be your wife out of
"Cicely!" cried the Major. "I cannot
take you in my arms, as you well
know, or I shall upset this compound
fracture, but come here! come here at
once, nnd look in my eyes. Now do
you think I love you, nnd will you be
my wife?"
Cicely beheld such n fire of love In
those honest brown eyes that she felt
compelled to hide her owu, but ns she
endeavored to conceal her blushing
face, he heard her whisper something
which, in spite of comminuted, compound fractures, dislocations, nnd such
other evils ns attend a hunting man
who "conies a cropper," compelled him
to place his arms around her, nnd rnlse
her head until her sweet red lips were
available for kissing purposes.
"My Dear Robert: I was married to
your uncle Richard yesterday, and we
leave here for the south of France tomorrow. I did not find what you represented; in fact, quite the contrary.
When I tell you that I have persuaded
your uncle to Increase your allowance
I feel sure thnt you will not regret my
signing myself your affectionate aunt,
"By Jove!" exclaimed Bob, as he tore
the above letter Into little pieces, "It's
wonderful what a woman can do."���

Of the crowd of members of Parliament who, on Nov. 20, 1837, thronged
the bar of the House of Lords to catch
a glimpse of the girl Queen opening her
first Parliament, only six are living nt
tills day. This fact, standing alone,
marks the unparalleled length of Queen
Victoria's reign. Tlie half dozen survivors are Mr. Leader, who represented
Victoria In the first Parliament of Victoria; Mr. Hurst, who represented Horsham; Wentworth Fitzwlllinm, of Mal-

which there Is a bull) at the upper Instead of the lower part, anil In which
the upper rim Is cut obilquely. This,
it Is said, makes It much safer to blow
a lamp out, and the flame Is taller nnd
steadier, so that the light Is improved.
The greater safety in blowing out will
of course depend upon the blower

the Klllinu  of Mormons Joseph and
Hyriim Smith at Cnrthafte, UL
The removal of the missionary department of the Mormon Church from
Kansas City to Chicago calls ntteiition
to one of the great tragedies in the annals of Illinois. Ove.' half a century
agoJoseph Smith, the Mormon prophet,
and his brother, Hyrum, were murdered ln the Hancock County Jail, in Carthage. Perhaps no single crime ever
perpetrated In the United States up to
that time was of such a sensational
character and attracted as much attention as did this one. The few people
living to-day who were alive at the
time of the killing of the Mormons say
I that no event of a like nature ever took
j place within their memory which ere-
I ated such excitement. The case at once
I became so notorious and caused so
| much comment that thousands of peo-
j pie to-day are almost as famillair with
��� the details ns If they hnd been eyewlt-
i neesee. Even those who sanctioned
the deed at the time and still sanction
it agree that it ls the blackest spot ou
the pages of the history of Illinois. The
slaying of their leaders was the cause
of the removal of the Mormons from II-
ehureh. At any rate, Hancock people
resolved to drive the Mormons out of
the State. The Mormon war occurred
in 1845, and in the spring of 1840 the
Mormons left Nauvoo. In 1848 the
beautiful temple, costing about $1,000,-
000, was burned by vandals.

missionary headquarters in Chicago
marks an epoch of the withdrawal of
the Latter Day Balnrts and its cause. In
the north west part of Carthage is still
standing the famous old Jail, with its
stone walls a yard In thickness, hut instead of presenting the forbidding aspects of the average jail a beautiful
conservatory adorns almost tlie entire
front of the lower story nnd two woodbine vines are creeping up the walls to
the sill of the window from which
Joseph Smith fell a corpse. On the
ground underneath the window a flower bed marks the spot where the prophet lay as he breathed his last.
It was in 1880-40 that Joseph Smith
I entered Illinois with thousands of ids
followers who had been dliven out of
i Missouri and Ohio.    He established 11
i city at Nauvoo which in two years at-
j tallied a population of 15,0110. The Mor-
[ mon prophet hnd little trouble in   obtaining illegal charters from the Stale
Legislature, and it was to the rascality
of that body that in a great measure
were due the subsequent troubles with
the Mormons.   Whenever Smith or any
i of Ills followers would evade or break
the law and were threatened with nr-
j rest, or were arrested, they would re-
j sort to the protection of the habeas
corpus act, aud by this method escape
j the clutches of the law.
The late Judge Hlbee and his brother
Francis were living In Nauvoo during
the reign of Joseph, and became very
| weary of the methods   employed   by
' Smith and his   followers.    So,   about
j June 20, they Issued the first number of
the   Nauvoo   Expositor,   which  fairly
. screamed with denunciations of Mor-
I mon methods.  This was the llrst and
I last Issue of the paper.     By order of
: Joseph Smith, mayor and president of
1 Nauvoo, the Expositor office was  demolished and the press and type thrown
! Into   the   Mississippi    River.    Joseph
Smith, his brother   Hyrum. and   Dr.
Taylor, whu was the late head of the
: Utah church, were arrested for this act,

thrilling experience that recently befell
Kdw.ml C. Depew, au engineer on the
Great Northern Railroad. The great
beast leaped at the engine, and narrowly escaped crashing through the window of th�� cab. Altogether the episode was one of the most exciting that
a railroad man has ever experienced.
Mr. Depew, in relating his adventure,
said: "After we had left Lowell,
Washy and almost two miles east of
there, about half way across a long
trestle, my fireman, George Lawrence,
Jumped down off his box scat nnd came
quickly to my side of the engine. All
he could do was to glai'e through the
window of the cab and point ahead. A
cold perspiration broke out ou my
brow. I looked alhead and sa w, through
the darkness, some black-looking object on the track. As soon as I saw
the obstruction on tlie track I felt that
a possible accident was at hand. Nothing couhl be done. We were too close
to the danger. Instinctively I crawled
out of the cab on to tlie side of the
engine. The train dashed on, nnel nn
Instant after I had discerned tlie form
I saw the monster's eyes flashing
through the darkness, green and yellow by turns. Lawrence was still In
the cab, speechless.
As the train approached the lion I
could see It prepare to spring, and finally when the leap was made the situation was so dramatic as to lie almost
theatrical in effect. The headlight of
the engine threw its rays on the crouching amtrnal, and when it plunged into
the flood of light it looked as If its mission of death would surely he successful. The force of the jump wns astonishing, and as the liody of the beast
crashed into the edge of the engine
front the Bound echoed through the silence again and again. To jump then
was certain death, for we were right

kith and kin beyond   the  sea   have of
the si/e of this country. The doctor
was describing the sine of British Columbia to an audience, saying that this
province is three limes the nlza of tlie
United Kingdom aud that Canada was
eight times larger thun Great Britain.
At the dose a gentleman waited behind fo 001TB01 him. "Sir, did you
not mean oue-eighl li t lionize.instead ni
eight limes ; iie size uf ((real II ri tain."
"NoSir,   1   mean  eight   times   larger
than Great Uritnin." "Well, I don't
know what kind of a country you have"
was the puzzled rejoinder of the astonished Britisher, Another misconception was the belief that lie should krow
the friends of every one who had some
relation on this side of the Atlantic.
"Dae ye come frae Canada, due ye ken
my son in Boston?'1 Another would
say, "I boo a doehter mat-fit In Chicago, you will have met her in your
travels?" The popular belief that the
doctor was bound to know their friends
in some obscuro village out near tho
Pacific coast, or on the prairies of
Manitoba or away down east in some
small townsite in Nova Scotia or tbe
lower  provinces  was  most  amusing
had penetrated into its old country
minds, and eager questions were asked
concerning the mines out here and
their fabulous wealth. At the close
he gave an account of the Presbyterian church in the Northwest of Canada. Twenty years ago there were
twenty-five missions west of Lakes-Superior. Now their are eight hundred.
In the Kootenay district the Presbyterian has nearly twenty ministers engaged in different fields, and west of
the Hookies tlie church employs over
thirty preachers. They propose to Odd
considerably to this number this fall
and next spring, and are going to send
missionaries to Klondike and other
portions of Alaska where the gold
mining fever is.creating such excitev
ment at present. The doctor also
mentioned that in the old country the
utmost friendliness existed towards
the United States and they hoped that
Canada and the Americans would always live on the most friendly terms
with each other. The lecture throughout was eloquent, pathetic and humorous, high in its moral and spiritual
tone, and greatly appreciated hy the
goodly audience.
At the close Mr. G. O. Buchanan, in
a brief speech, proposed.and Mr. Me-
Callum seconded :i vote of thanks to
Dr. Robertson for his able lecture.
On Wednesday morning the doctor
with his wife and daughter, who have
been iu Kaslo since last Friday, left
for the coast by way of Sandon aud Nakusp.

Bert Olll or Thin City Advertised as un Alaskan
An amusing verification of the old
adage, "Go away from home to learn
home news." is found in the case of
Bert Dill, localmanager for John B.
Wilson, merchant, of this city. The
Buffalo Courier-Record (N. Y.) of July
20th, in a dispatch from Tonawanda,
N. Y., says:
"Tonawanda has a representative in
the Alaska .gold liehls. not. ono just

Mr. Dill will probably have to set up
tlie cigars in his friends for an Indefinite time ou the strength of his newly
found wealth.    News must lie scarce in
