put off without him.
But Mr. McCallum is a Scotchman,

Washlngton, July '.���Glorious news from
Cuba affords the American people just
cause for the celebration of this, the na-
fon's holiilay. A.lmiral Sampson has accomplished the work which he was ,11-
lected to perform when he left Key West
for the coast of Cuba. He was ordered
to linil and destroy Cervera's fleet. Several weeks ago, Commodore Schley located the lleet In the bay of Santiago. Vests iday, after being bottled up helpless
in the harbor for weeks, the fleet was
destroyed. Nothing now remains of the
Spanish squadron but shattered and burning hulks.
In addition to this splendid work accomplished by Admiral Sampson Ueneral
Shafter In command of the land forces
before Santiago had so far progressed in
ihe carrying out of his plans for the reduction of the city that at 10:30 yesterday
morning he dcmunoVd the immediate surrender of the S|*anish forces. At 3:30 yesterdny afternoon General Shafter's demands had not been complied with, so far
as was officially known.
That the demand Will be complied with,
however. General Shafler fully believes
and that the Stars and Stripes will on
this l'\>urth of July lie raised above the
former capital of Cuba Is regarded as
practically certain.
Shortly after 12 o'clock this morning
Assistant Secretary of the Navy Allen
left the White house hastily and, going
directly to the department, posted th.e
above fucts on the bulletin board:

Shafter and Colonel Allen was received
with satisfaction, lt was taken to Indicate nol only that Admiral Sampson had
accomplished miignilicently Ihe work
which had been set for him but had proved that Shafter was In a stronger posl-
ilon than ihe officials had been led to believe he held. One of the officials who j

Siinln'ss   Finest   Fleet.
The fleet of Admiral Cervera was one
of the finest Spain possessed. Three ot
the vessels, the Almlrante Oquendo, the
Viacaya and the Cristobal Colon, were
modern armored cruisers of the first
class. Of the remaining vessels of the
lleet the Furor and Terror were torpedo
bout destroyers and the Reina Mercedes
was an old vessel that was sunk a short
time ago by a shell from Admiral Sampson's fleet.
The Terror was not with the fleet at
Santiago, but ls supposed to be at San
Juan, Puerto Rleo, undergoing repairs
made necessary by an encounter with the
St.  Paul  a  few days ago.
In addition to the albove mentioned vessels there were two torpedo boats and a

"Just nfter President McKinley's inauguration he had his relatives who were
in the city at a family dinner at the
White House," says the July Ladies'
Home Journal in an illustrated anecdotal biography of the president, "lt was
a large company and a very good dinner.
Dear old Mother McKinley was there,
but she was not very talkative. She was
too happy for words. But she kept a
sharp eye on the dinner, and no detail of
it escaped her. She was impressed by
the quantity of cream served with the
fruit and coffee, for she looked up at her
son in her sweet way and said:
" 'William, you must keep a cow now.'
"Some of the younger members of the
family party found it difficult to suppress
a smile, but the president, with bis usual
tact and graciousness, replied:
" 'Yes, mother, we can afford to have a
cow now, and have all the cream we can
possibly use.'"

A Way to Trnnxiiort Milk.
An improved method of preserving milk
for transportation is stated to have developed an Important new industry iu
Sweden and Denmark. Tlie milk is collected at it central station from neighboring farms, and is there pasteurized at
about 170 degrees Fahrenheit, after which
part of it is frozen at about 15 degrees.
The blocks of frozen milk are placed in
stout, wooden casks, which thev half 'ill,
sterilized milk being poured into the remaining space. The casks are then hermetically sealed, und, as they are perfectly full and kept, cool by the frozen
masses, the milk cannot be churned into
butter in transportation,and may be kept
in good condition for at least twenty days.
This makes it possible for the Danes un 1
Swedes to supply even Kngland and
France with whole cargoes of milk.
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the California Pig Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the California Fig Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that, fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other parties. The high standing of the California Fig Syrup Co. with the medical profession, and tbe satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions ot families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
for in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weakening them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of
the Company ���

With this issue of the Kaslo Morning
News the daily edition will be discontinued. AS noted in tho lirst issue, tlie
daily was started for the purpose of
giving the people of Kaslo thc latest
telegraphic war news, and wo only
promised to continue tt during such
time as sufficient publio interest in
war events justified us in so doing.
The Hispano-Amerlcan war has virtually ended, as tho best Information at
hand would indicate a desire on the
part. 1 if (Spain to sue for peace.
The weekly edition of the British
Columbia News will bo continued as
formerly, appearing each Friday afternoon brimful of tbo latest local and
general news...
Mr. Green, tho Opposition candidate
for tho legislature, was successful at
the polls in this riding yesterday. The
result came as a surprise to all save
that class who delight to say, "I told
you so." We have viewed the contest
in but one light, namely, "Tho best interests of Kootonay." We believed,
and are still ef that opinion, that a
Government supporter would be able
to accomplish moro good for this riding than an Oppositionist. However,
we will not by word or act, seek to discredit any effort on the part of Mr
Green to accomplish for this riding the
full measure of all that it is justly entitled to. and all that we are satislied
Mr.Green will endeavor to secure for it.
We were alone interested in the business stability of the Province, and believing as we did that the Turner Government was better .able to maintain
our present standing in the financial
1 than a new regime, wo Bought to
strengthen its position by supporting a
man we knew to be in harmony with
tho present administration. Wo have
done so honestly, and fearlessly, a\id
have no excuses to mako or pardons to
beg for having done so.

In Staking an extension tho posts arc
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shape fraction between two ends of tbo
two claims. These fractions have often incurred groat expense, not only In
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry tho lead, and thus bo-
come of such value as to promote liti-
uation. The amended act authorizes
the surveyor to include such   fraction,

and provided further that two location
posts aro together.
By failure to record assessment work
to stoop to tho lsval or those of his opponents who resorted to personal abuse
to attract attention from the poverty
of their argument.
��� This attitude on the part or Mr. Re'
tallaek has earned for him the admiration of all, and it is safe to say tbat
he has more admirers today than ever
$100 each year. Now, a miner can do
ami record as many assessments as be
pleases in a yenr Iiy paying tlio recording fee lor each assessment dono to thc
extent of $100.
ln case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial land surveyor with the writ.
To obtain a crown grant in 1896 it
was necessary to do assessment work to *
the amount of $.*i(H) and to have tho \ |
claim survoyod, which mount another
$100. In 1897 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,18t)8,tho
cost of such survey should count as
work done on the claim, not to exceed
$100. tn plain English, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward the
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. Tho last legislature extends tho
time to May 1, 1899.
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings in
connection with the title to mineral
claims, before any court, each party to
the proceedings shall give affirmative
evidence of title. Heretofore the burden of proof was on tho contestant.
The foe for recording assessment
work has been reduced from 82.76 to
$2.50. Heretofore the fee for recording
assessments has been _fi conts higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark 11 boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to bo thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or a, fino
of $250, Or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly toward pro-
venting the use of old posts by people
who restako a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.

The fourth annual statement of tlio

Issued by the British Board of Trade,
aud covering the year 1890, shows an
output as follows: United Kingdom,
195,801.000 tons; United States, 11)1.-
000,000 tons; liermany. 85,890,000 tons;
France. 28,760,000 tons; and Belgium,
21.252,000 tons. The excess amount
of coal exported from Ilie United Kingdom was 44,587,000 tons: Germany,
0,122,000 tons; Belgium, 4,018,000 Ions;
United States. 2,3117,000 tons; Japan
(1895), 1,805,000 tons; New South
Wales. 2,474,000 tons; and Natal, 00,-

coal in excess of the amount of their
exports are ltussia, Sweden. France
Spain. Italy, and Austria-Hungary,
and the British possessions wlilch do
so nre Canada. Victoria, Tasmania,

says that the irverage rejections during
those years did not exceed ill per (Hint.
He attributes the large Increase almost
entirely'to the cigarette habit. "1 have
been Inspecting the papers In a number
of eases under the present recruiting
act," said l>r. Klug. "and I observe tbat
most of the men who failed to pass tlie
medical examination have weak hearts
or lack tbe vitality necessary to make
good soldiers. I had expected that the
percentage of rejections would lie
greater now than In 1801, but I did not
dream that lt would be nlmowt three
times ns great. Thc examining physicians with whom I have talked have
generally told me that the excess of rejections Is due to tbe large number of
youns,' meu applying for enlistment
who have become vIctlniB of the cigarette habit." It requires a peculiar quality of statesmanship to comprehend
why a government tolerates a traffic ot

Evaporation of Bananas.
The American consul at Nicaragua reports that experiments are being made
there to develop au Industry of evaporating bananas, and thai a trial shipment baa beeu made to this country.
If successfully established, this Industry will be of tbe Utmost Importance
to many Central American states. The

men experienced lu tbe manufacture of
machinery and appliances adapted to
tbe evaporation of fruits a modification to suit this case could easily be devised, and there would he au Immense

Primitive House Iit��tittng.
The first and most natural way of
lighting tbe houses of the colonists was
found ln the fat pltcb-plne, which,
says tbe Cbautauqunn, was plentiful
everywhere; but as soon as domestic
animals Increased candles were made,
and the manufacture of the winter sim
ply became the special nutumnni duty
of the thrifty housewife. Great kettles were hung over the kitchen fire
and filled with hot wnter and melted
tallow. At the cooler end of the kitchen
two long poles were placed from chair
back to chair back, Across these poles,
like the rounds of a ladder, were placed
shorter sticks, called candle rods. To
each candle rod were tied about a
dozen straight candle wicks. The
wicks were dipped again and ngnin. In
regular order, in the melted tallow,
the succession of dippings giving each
candle time to cool. Each grew slowly
ln size till all were linished. Deer suet
was used as well as beef tnllow and
mutton tallow. Wax candles were
made by pressing bits of half-melted
wax around a wick.

Last among the survivals in conflict
With the spirit of the age may be noted
promotion by purchase in the army���
which retarded Indefinitely the advancement of efficient officers and conspired to drop ull the honors of the
service Into the laps of wealthy individuals of no special talent, who could
afford to pay for them, which only
caine to an end In 1X71. ruder the system merit and litness wont for nothing,
and so difficult wns It for it mau without money to get on In the British
army that n good officer without the
wherewithal to purchase n company
might remain a lieutenant for twenty
years, lo be soured In all probability
by seeing brother Officers of less standing raised above him by the power of
money again and again, nnd even then
only obtain his captaincy by some unlooked-for augmentation In the establishment Strangely enough. In Ihe
navy brains and hard work were given
scope to carve out advancement nt the

largely affected hy the district In

One of tho passions which the horse

\s for horses, no one familiar With
:hein will doubt this s*tory, told by the
Sew York Observer:
In a boarding stable In New York
:here ls a horse whose name Is "Titters." He Is the pet of Mm. I)., who
>wns and drives hliu: and It Is evident
io all who know tliem that horse aud
>wner are very fond of each other.
She always gives him an apple or
jarrot before starting on n drive, and
mother on returning, the latter being
given after his bridle has been remov-
ld; and he has learned to wait patlent-
ly for the dainty until that time.
i Ou the same floor of the stable ls Mr.
H.'s horse, "l'lill." Mrs. 1). used frc-
1 iiiently to give an apple to l'lill, after
, riving one lo Tatters, The latter would
j manifest displeasure nt this In a mild
I way, but his demonstrations never
|,vent beyond the Blinking of his bead
I ind laying back of his cars.
But one evening, while Tatters, who
and just come in, was waiting for the
removal of his bridle, l'lill, who was
ihead of him, wns the recipient of an
ipple from Mrs. D.'a hand, as she stood
alklng to Mr. B.
A moment Inter the groom had removed Tatter's bridle, and nt once his
mistress offered hlm his apple. He
mined his head nwav. and refused to
joueh the fruit. Mrs. 1>. followed hliu
tito his stall, and tried to coax hlni;
mi he began munching IiIh hay, nud
ivonld not look at her.
Then Mr. U��� mid after hlm .the
{room, tried ti) Induce Tatters to take
:he apple, but to no purpose; he wus
nut because his mis-tress had given an
ipple to Phil before giving one to him,
tnd he would not forgive the affront.
His owner's feelings were much like
���hose of the horse, nnd she left the stn-
)le with tears lu her eves. Before
���timing out the next day, she had a
'rtend give a carrot instead of au apple
:o Tatters, In the hope Hint, If he hod
not forgotten the unintended affront,
the carrot might break the association
s-ith the apple.
He took the carrot eagerly. Then be
:ook one from his mistress's hand, aud
rou may he sure she lias never since
:hen given npple or carrot to another
aorse while Tatters was In sight.
More Days to Come.
In Spain the people tnke no note ot
time, not even from its loss. Everything Is to be done manaiia, to-morrow.
A wealthy Englishman, who hud long
lived in Spain, had a lawsuit. He
pleaded bis cause in person, and knowing the customs of tile country, won
his case. The victory cost him three
days of trouble and expense, so thut
when the Judge congratulated hlm ou
his success, he replied:
"Yes, that's ull right; but It has cost
tue three days, and time Is money. I
am a busy man. and these three days
are lost forever."
"Oh, you English!" answered the
Judge: "you ore always saying that
time Is money. How are you to get
your three days back? 1 will tell you.
Take them out of next week; surely
there are plenty more days to cojne!"

Bloodiest Battle.
The battle of Borodino Is reckoned to
have beeu tbe bloodiest since tbe use of

and Russians, now so mysteriously allied to each other. One authority gives
the Russian loss ss.",(>,< ioi killed, wounded, and prisoners, and tbe French as
about 20,000. Another gives the numbers as 50,000 French killed, wounded,
and prisoners, and 45,000 Russian. Tbe

Headache Is sometimes an Independent affection, occurring ns a symptom
it actual disease of some of the structures lu the head itself, the skin, bone,
nerves or brain; but usually It Is a
lyuiptom of a general condition, or of
llseuse In sonic one of the digestive or-
{ans.   lt occufi uliuost invariably at
mine stage, usually the beginning, of
the various fevers, and often In the
.'hlef cause of complaint.
Apart from such cases, headache may
be oecaslonul only, nud Is then usually
traceable to Indiscretion lu eating or
Irlnklug, or possibly smoking, to exposure to the hot sun or a cold wlud, to
overfatigue, want of sleep, or to some
atlier easily discoverable cause. Sueb
i headache Is usually relieved by a cup
it black coffee or a glass of carbonated
water containing perhaps a holf-tea-
spoonful of bicarbonate of sotla, followed by rest lu a darkened but cool
itld well-nlred room.
The hnbltunl headache, which recurs
tt more or less frequent Intervals, Is
more difficult to trace to Its cause, and
more difficult to cure. Such a hend-
IChe may he due to eye-stralu, to dyspepsia, coiisilpalloii, mental overwork
it worry, catarrhal trouble, disease of
'he liver or kldueys, or It may be gouty
u Its nature.
Ciouty headache ls much more common than Is usually supposed, and oc-
iiirs often In those who have uo other
dgn of tbe disease. It Is, perhaps, the
uost frequent kind of headache iu per-
ioiis over thirty years old.
In children aud young persons per-
listen! headache may often be traced
lo eye-strain. This headache comes on
lsually In the afteruoon, after tbe eyes
tiad been used for reading or study,
ind grows steadily worse until evening.
In cases of persistent headache, attention should flrst be paid to tbe digestive organs; coffee, tea and alcoholic
lrlnks should lie excluded, tbe amount
��f meat reduced, and the bowels regulated. 8mokers should be very moder-
ite, or, better still, stop smoking entirely for a time. If, after n faithful trial,
these precautions result In no lmprove-
Dient, the sufferer should consult nn
jculist to determine whether eye-strain
may not be the cause of tbe trouble.
In no case should domestic dosing <H
with advertised "headache cures" be
Indulged In, as the continual use of
these preparations ls apt to lead to the
formation of a drug habit, difficult. If
aot Impossible, to cure.���Youth's Companion. Lis.

Every evening after dinner an old
man sits at the library window In his

people as they pass along the street
or gases abstractedly at the beautiful
park across the way, says a correspondent. He holds n cigar In his band,
but he seems to smoke little. He sits
there quietly till the man comes in to
turn on the lights. Then he gets up
and seats himself iiy tlie table covered
with the papers of the day and his favorite books, or goes upstairs to Join

the higher and shriller notes of the

clenching your fist bard, you will find
that she cannot auy longer withdraw
her mandibles; tbey are caught fast in
