In the mining sections of the various

public free of charge is the best means
of advertising this branch  of the natural resouroes of   tlie  countries.     Tho
flrst necessity is to have such a collection properly marked or  labeled   with
the name of tbe mine or claim  and the
owner's name and address, also giving
tbe scientific or mlueralogical name of

A Lead Bounty.
Has anything been done by the government to bring Into operation the
Act of 58-59 Victoria, Chapter 7, providing foi a bounty on ores smelted 7
Canada? Tlie act provides that certain
regulations undor it must be made, and
tor the lack of theso it was for somo
time inoperative. We remember having heard that regulatloua either were
or ���.. ere about to be made, and would
be glad to know what is tlie exact
status of the matter.
The act, which was passed in tho
year 1395, provides for a bounty of fifty
cents per ton on silver-lead or other
ores of silver and gold smelted in Canada between July-1, 1895, and July 1,
IfiOO. Not more than .$,10,000 can be
paid out in auy one year, unless Uuie
is a balance left over from tho preoed*
in.i' year,when that balance and $30,000
moi"? may be paid. If the qnantily of
ore smelted is greater than will allow
of tho full payment of fifty cents por
ton, the bounty muse be sealed down
accordingly. Only these smelters that
wore established and iu operation by
January 1, 1897, can. participate in the
bounty. Tho Minister of Tiwdo and
Commerce has control of the payments.
If this act has not been brought into
operation, we submit that tliere should
nb longer be any delay about it, and
that the wholo sum of 8150,000 ought
to be mado available for future payments, lt is interesting to note that
this measure was introduced into parliament in consequence of representations made to the lata Dominion government by Mr. Turner, who was then
finance minister, and when on his way
to London, in connection with the
refunding scheme, stopped at Ottawa
expressly for tho purpose of urging
suoh legislation.���Colonist.

AC'H man. as lie
signed his nnme on
the enlistment roll,
realized that war
meant fight, and
that tight meant
kill. This idea was
further drilled into
us iu camp; it forfn-
etl the basis of the
colonel's address as
we marched to the front; it
tirought our muskets to nn "aim" ns
we caught slg'it of the enemy for the
tirst time. YY7- hnd become soldiers to
march, tight and kill. It was to be looked upon as n matter of business, as
well ns a patriotic duty. The sooner
the strength of the enemy was exhausted the sooner we would have peace.
We thought that every man In company "fi" had the same feeling���I" kill
���but we had not been long at the front
when we found an exception. ,V score
of Skirmishers were ordered dowu in
front of the regiment to feel the
strengtb of the enemy in the friuge of
bushes along a ereek. Ambrose Davis
was oue of us. lie was a man of HO���
a plain, every day man who had laid
dowu the lools of a mechanic to take
up the musket nf a soldier. He was not
given to enthusiasm, but he was an obedient soldier and the best shot in the
company. As we clambered over the
fence and took "open order'' mi the
broad field whicli dipped down to the
creek, the. enemy lu the fringe had it|
dead rest on every man. War wltb
tliein also meant kill. To kill one of
half a million men means little, and yet
it means kill. Ztp! Plngl Zip! It was
not firing by file���it was not firing by
volleys Into a battle line half hidden
In the smoke, luit every bullet that came
pinging was meant for au individual
We crouched down and ran forward.
We zlg-zagged to right and left. We
took the shelter of every knoll, brush
and slump. The enemy had to develop
his strength to check us. In front of
Davis was nu opening in the fringe���
a spot where a farm road crossed the
creek. The enemy to the right and left
of this road was using tbe bank of the
stream as a breastwork and we were
tiring a good deal at random. An officer
suddenly appeared ill the center of this
opening, and raising a pair of glasses
to his eyes lie took a conl survey of the
regiment far back of us on the hill, lie
was within pistol shut nf Davis and
he must hnve known it. and yet lie
stood tliere ai cool and calm as you
please to take his chance, It was
sheer bravado. Four of our twenty had
been killed, and the enemy was seeking the lives of the rest. 1 was to the
right of Ibivis and could have almost
hit the officer with a Stone; the man
on his left had Just, as fair a target.
He was not our "game." however lie
belonged to I'avis, We saw niii' comrade thrust forward a barrel uf his
musket and bring lis eye down in tho
sights. Then we watched the officer to
see him throw up hi-i hands and fall.
Thirty seconds passed away, and we
glanced back at Davis. He had lifted
his head and was looking at the officer
over his gun. At the end of a o,uarter
of a minute he dropped It again, lt
was his duty io kill, but this was killing lu cold blood, and he had to have
a few seconds to nerve himself up.
Hack went our eyes to the oliieer. He
was slowly sweeping the glasses
across a front of half n mile, uud I
wondered If he would drop lliem as
the bullet struck him, or whether Ills
fingers would clutch and hold lliem the
tighter. My heart came crowding Into
ni.v throat as I watched and as tiie seconds passed, and at length I heard the
man on Davis' left shouting at blm:
"Shoot! sSlioot! Why the devil don't
you drop that officerV"
I turned to look at Davis, and as I
did so lie slowed the muzzle of Ills gun
to the righl ami tired Into the bushes.
A few seconds Inter the officer lowered
his glasses, nnd swinging them lu his
hand and perliapi humming a tune,
he slowly disappeared luto the bushes.
Later ln the day, when Davis' singular
action had been reported, ihe captain
said to blm:
"Davis, I can't believe you are a coward, because you went down ou the
skirmish line to lie shot at, but when
you hnd an enemy fairly under your
gun. and an officer nt that, why didn't
you bring hlm down?"
"I was going to, air, but 1���I
couldn't," was the reply.
"But tbey were shooting at you to
"Yes, I know."
The captain could hardly reprimand
a man for not killing an enemy aa be
would have shot down a rabbit, and
there was no one to hint that Davis
lacked courage. The Incident was forgotten after a little, and such was the
soldiery conduct of the man that he
���was made a corporal. When the enemy
���withdrew behind the works at York-
town to bar McCleUan's road to Richmond he covered his wings with
���harpshooters, and our officers were
their special target. One day, as three
companies of us were dragging np some
of the heavy siege-guns to be put ln
poltlen, a major and a private were kill
ed by a sharpshooter who was located
in a tree top. He could be plainly made
out, but the range wns too far for our
army muskets. A Berdan rifle was sent
for, aud when it arrived our captain
put it Into the hands of Corporal Davis
aud said:
"You are by long odds the best shot
In our company. With a dead-rest over
that log you can tumble that man out
of his tree."
Davis hung back aud turned pale,
Just then a brigadier rode up to give
au order, and his horse had scarcely
come to a halt when a bullet from the
sharpshooter passed through the general's hat. He was uot only a bit
startled, but inclined to reprimand that
the fellow had not lieeu disposed of.
Wheu he saw the heavy rifle in the
hands of tlie pale-faced aud hesitating
corporal he shouted out:
"Hurry up, man, aud tumble him out
of that before he can reload! If you
bring him down I'll ask your captain
to make a sergeant of you five minutes
Davis advanced to a stump a few
feet away and knelt down and sighted
his rifle across It. We who knew his
marksmanship felt sure that his bullet
would speed true. He took a loug aim,
aud we were holding our breath lo hear
the report of the rifle, when fie drew
back, rose up and said:
"I���I can't shoot that man!"
The words were hardly out of his
mouth when the man In the tree tired
again, and his linllet struck down a
lieutenant within Dive feet of Ihe brigadier.
"You Idiot, but why don't you shoot?"
shouted the Indignant general, as Ue
stepped  forward.
"It is cold blood, sir���cold blood!"
whispered Davis, who trembled lu every limb, aud was as pale-faced as a
deud man.
"You poltroon, you coward!" raged
the general. "Here, you man���cut the
stripes from his sleeves, and you, captain, see that he Is reduced lo the ranks
on the company roll! He might to he
court-martialed and driven out of the
army in disgrace!"
A soldier stepped forward and with!
his pocket-knife cut the chevrons from
In rear of ns and warning eaeb man to
aim low. I heanl him cursing Davis,
and twice after thai, ere we fell back,
I saw the mau fifing into the tree tops.
The enemy crowded us hack day by
day and mile by mile, and there waa
lighting Over every foot of the highways. We had a tierce grapple at Pair
Oaks, and again .11 Savage Station, but
all I knew of Davis was that he was
with us. It was only when wetunied at
bay at Malvern Hill that I found myself beside him again. He had been
three times grazed by bullets, and that
was proof that he had stood up to a
soldier's work. (Inr regiment was stationed tit the base of the hill, strung
along iu Ihe bed of a dry creek, and the
banks gave us protection nnd a rest for
our muskets. As the enemy came
swarming across the open every man
was a fair target. I had fired three or
four times when my musket fouled, and
as I waited to clear it I watched Davis.
He was tiring over the heads of the
enemy by thirty feet. Our position was
one which could not be carried.' The
enemy realized this nt last, and the
battle began to die away. On our front
we had only dead and wounded men.
as far as we could see. and all firing
had ceased, when a man suddenly rose
up from the ground about a pistol shot
away aud stood staring at us. A thousand men shouted at him lo come and

King Malletoa nf the Sainoan Islands,
whose death was reported recently
from Auckland, New Zealand, was an
unfortunate heathen who was badly
treated by the civilized powers and his
native rival, Tamasase. The dead king
riiied the Island by the sufferance of the
United Stales, Kngland uml Germany.

monarchs of the SHtnonn group for upward of BOO yenrs. Malletoa will be

strange thing. A soldier who did not

be killed could not lie induced to tire
upou the enemy. His soldierly quail-
lies were such that he hud been taken
out of ihe ranks, and yet he refused
to carry out a soldier's first duty���to
kill. We could not.eull him a coward���
uo man is a coward who will face death
���but we called him strange ami wondered what was back of it all. The
men of ihe company fell away from
him, aud lu a few days lie slood almost
alone. When we followed up the enemy after Yorktown tliere was some
heavy skirmishing with the rear guard.
Ambrose Davis was with the company,
and upon one occasion, wheu the hundred charged aud captured a gun, he
led us all lu the rush uud was ihe hrst
man to put a baud on It. After that we
said It was a case of "uerves," or that
he had a hereditary fear of shedding
blood, nnd be was looked upou more
We saw nothing more of the "strangeness" of Ambrose Davis until the battle
wbicb drove Met'lollan to make a
change of base. For half a day our regiment stood In battle Hue, waiting to attack or lie attacked, nnd during this Interval our company lost two men killed
and three wounded, lt required all tbe
nerve tbe men could work up to stand
there aud be shot at without firing a

more nervousness than any of the rest.

flank for a quarter of a mile and then
dropped down to open fire and bold our

Amber is the fossilized gum of the pine
sree of ancient days, whidh by the action
<if the sea and wind was converted into

of amber is very old, for we find it mentioned in tlie bible. Amber burns easily, sending up a black smoke and giving forth a fragrance. Rubbed on one's
bund it gives forth a smell of camphor
Mild eucalyptus. This nibbing is a good
nest, of the genuineness ot amber.
Flies and insects are often found in amber and scientists have classified any
���lumber of lizards, ants, beetles, moths
nnd fragments of wood which otherwise
we should have never known about. The
wonder is that the insects are preserved

��t niggles to get free usually result in the

The town of Konigsberg, on the Baltic,
is in the center of the amber industry.
Where the Baltic now washes there was
���once dry land, covered with waring
pines, whloh the sal. water finally reach-

*oil ate up the woody matter and the
pine gum, instead of decaying, mummified into umber. Once tlie Prussian
government issued licenses and any one

which now employs some 2000 people. It

hunters dredge until they find a blue loam,
which signifies amber in the vicinity.
Then a tunnel is run out from shore and
regular mining proceeds. In some places
the coast is a network of 'burrows.
The reason small amber articles, such

larger pieces, suoh as cigar holders and
pipes, so expensive is that most amber is

.   lines   of   the    surrounding
claims, provided no Hido exceeds  1S00

, entitled to the vacant   ground
that   he   -. [aims,   even if  he does not
stake it ir. such a manner as to Include
it all, whit h he seldom does.
By a 1 ei" nt decision of the courts a
prospector lo��t a claim because of inability to secure the post necessary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims are
Btaked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not securo the necessary posts, be may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In Staking au extension the -posts are
of ten planted SO as to form a wedge-
shape fraction between two ends of the
two claims. These fractious have oft>

Steamer Mohegan, Captain Griffiths, belonging lo the Atlantic Transport Com-
S��wy. lias been wrecked in the vicinity
��� if iln' Lizard, between the Manacles and
the lowlands. It ia believed about 1-131
|iersons wore drowned.
The Mohegan left London for Mow
York Thursday, having on board, so far
-ns ascertained ut present] 5!) passengers
iniui -a crew of 115. When the Btoamei'
*wa�� seen iu distress, lifeboats went out
Vi'om the shore and every effort was muile
tn save the passengers, The const at thin
*poinl is extremely dangerous and has
"Siccii the scene of numerous wrecks. The
genera] opinion is that the machinery of
the Mohegan became disabled during the
heavy easterly gale which wus blowing
olid she run ashore and foundered.
A number of tugs, which put out from

Falmouth, Oct. 17.���A dispatch from
St. Keverne. a small town li little to the
eastward of the Manacles, suid that 18
bodies from the .Mohegan have been
Washed ashore there.
-A member of the Port lloustock boat
evew named James gave a graphic account of Ihe wreck. He said that as soon
as the disaster was imnoiineed his crew
was summoned to the bout and proceeded
1o Ihc Manacles, The night was pitch |
dark and no rocks were discernible, but
Ihey heard shouting and pulled toward
the spot from whicli the voices came. No ]
���steamer was iu light, but tin* lifeboat'
came across an overturned lifeboat to
which tout or live men were clinging.!
They were taken on board tue lifeixial.
l.iiter the crew heard shouting near the
overturned lifeboat, and with grapnels]
managed to right it. Inside the boat they
found a woman nnd two or three men
alive. The woman was so tightly jammtpt
in the wreckage that the lifeboat men
liad to cut away the thwarts of the small
boat before they could extricate her.
.Tames said tlie lifelioat passed several
bodies of men and women and picked up
ii couple of men who were Hunting on
wreckage. The lifeboat then met a ship's
>boat having on board 22 passengers and
���crew all of whom would have been
���speedily lost if not rescued at that time,
��s the boat was waterlogged and rapidly
���drifting towards the rocks. The occu-
jiants of this boat were taken into the
Fluckr Women.
While the latter was beating homeward
. -she picked up Miss Noble of 1 laltimoi���*..
"She is the pluckiest lady 1 ever saw In
nny life," said James. "She shouted, 'Don't
*hove me an <>ar, give me a rope.' The
tsea then swept hfer towards us and we
'caught her hands and got ber safely on
"board in as good a state as could be ex-
lieeted.    We bad 48 persons then in the
boat, Including the crew, and could hear
shouting from the steamer. We approached her and saw Steward Gray clinging to
the jigger mast. We then saw that all
four musts were still standing and the
survivors were clinging to them. We
bucked in right over the wreck and sue
ceeileil in rescuing the boatswain, cook
and others. Next we rescued an engineer
who was clinging to the steamer's fun

then made for the shore."

the Panic on the Mohegan wus terrible
and the cries of despair were heard on
tine passenger cut away the fulls of ������
lifeboat with a razor and thus saved Severn 1 lives.
Miss Rondebush nnd her mother, Mm.
Grandin, entered n ship's boat, wliich was
capsized, and Mrs. Grandin was jammed
between this bunt and a lifeboat. One of
the lifeboat's crew, at great personal risk,
jumped on board the steamer's boat after
tlie latter had righted and pulled Mrs.
Grandin from her dangerous position.
But she was landed in a dying condition
and all the efforts made to revive her
were useless.
When Miss Rondebush lnnded later sh-i
anxiously inquired for her mother, whose
body was identified by the vicar of St.
Keverne from the description of a ring
furnished to him by the daughter. One
of Mrs. Grandin's feet was torn from the
Foundered  ln   Five  Minutes.
From tlie best evidence obtainable at
St. Keverne it appears that tlie .Mohegan foundered five minutes after she
struck the rocks. She was going at full
speed, struck twice, stopped und rapidly
settled into the water. As the captain
nnd the executive officers of the steamers
went down with her it hns been impossible thus far to ascertain how she got out
of her course, as Falmouth light and the
const were visible.

London, Oct. 17. -Last week opened
with un enormous rattling of sabers over
Fashoda and ended witli the rumblings
of a revolutionary volcano in Paris. The
situation arising out of the question between Great Britain and France as to tha
right of occupying Fashoda is extremely
grave. Everything hinges on the nature
of tlie report of Major Marcliand, tlie
French commander at Faahoda, which is
on its way from Khartoum lu Paris, The
ovacuntion of Fashoda by the French
must, however, take place if war between
Oreat Britain and France is to be avoided, as the Marquis of Salisbury has nailed his colors to tlie mast and can nut
recede from the position he has taken up,
and in which be received the unanimous
support  of the country.
The Speaker, the organ of the liberal
party, refers plainly this week to the impossibility of relinquishing the British
claims, and points out that if it conies to
war it will not be merely for Fashoda,
but for the maintenance of Oreat Britain's place in the world, plus her undoubted rights.
The Speaker adds: "If we abandoned
our claims Englishmen would not only
lost the respect of others, but would lose
their own self-respect, and English statesmanship would be dragged in thc mire.'
France Is IIi-iIkIiik.
These emphatic declarations of tlie
Knglish press and public men have already hud 11 certain Influence across the
channel, and the inspired statements of
tlie French press belittle the importance
of Fashoda and shift tlie ground to an
undefined claim upon the province of
Bahr-KI-Ghnzul and it port on the Nile.
The mouthpiece of the French foreign
office is preparing France for the abandonment of Fashoda by asserting that
Major Marohand overshot his goal and
that instead of ging to Fashoda he ought
to have slopped at the confluence of the
Many British publicists scout tlie idea
that France will lie permitted to install
herself on the Balir-F.l-Uliazal, which is
described as the paying reef of the Sou-
dun. All the rest of the reconquered territory as far as Fashoda is comparatively
valueless, lieing mostly desert ground,
which can not be made to pay for many
years to come. But the Bahr-F.l-Ghazal
territory is thickly populated and has
magnificent trade prospects. During the
governorship of the late (ieneral Gor-
don, Babi-Kl-Oha/Jil had immense exports of ivory, grain, beeswax, skins, etc.,
while it contained whole forests of arrow
mot. Besides, the cotton growth there
surpasses the Egyptian product.

A big strike has been made in the
famous Standard mine at Wallace. Id. On
Thursday  night the crosscut from  ihc

Since then the miners have crosscut

This is the tirst level opened lielow the

and from 58 to 01 ounces in silver. This
is even better tlmi! the line ore bodies

The* mine, under the management ol
John A. Finch and A. B. Campbell, is
now employing about 150 men, and is
shipping about 300 tons of ore per day.
The new ore body will be opened up as

ihen be increased.
The company has ordered 0 new hoist,
and it will be installed aboul the lirst

and the silver, at 00 cents per ounce,
is worth $0. The new tind is the richest that has ever been discovered in the

The recent discovery wus made in .1

has no right to use his employer's ad
dress for soeml correspondence, and that
ii is not the place for such letters, it
means a freedom from distraction whicli
is valuable to him. The receipt of social
lettei-s at business places often means
their answer there, and so one evil multiplies into another. A young man's
business hours should be devoted to business, and he can not be too strict in the
observance of that rule. Nor slhould o.ir
girls seek in any respect to lead our
young men to give laxity to that rule.
Thc best kind of a self respecting girl, on
the other hand, is she who helps a young
man to keep inviolate a vule so obviously
for his own best interests, present and future. A girl can not too rigidly let a
young man alone during business hours.
That is the rule of wisdom, and I wish
that every girl woiuu learn it and adhere to it.
