What a Hattle at Sea Really Ia.
In the great naval battle off the Yalu
river between the .Tapahose and Chinese war ships during tho late war between those two countries, tho Chinese
iron-clad battlo-shlp, Chen Yuen, was
commanded by an American, named
Philo McGriffen, a graduate of the
Naval Academy at Annapolis. Captain
McGriffen, who has but recently recovered In part from injuries received
In this historic battle, tells what must
be faced by American and Spanish
seamen. Speaking of his own experience, he said: "You can form little
conception of the awful character ot
buttle lotide unuor-pUttd tt***m nth
sets, where space and air are necessarily much restricted. Tho din made by
the impact of heavy projectiles against
the thick metal sides is frightful beyond description, and seems to shake
one's very life. During .*our engagement, one of the enemy's rapid fire gun
shells struck an open gun shield early
in the fight, and glanced down through
the port; seven gunners were killed and
fifteen disabled by that one projectile.
Late in the action, after my *_air had
been burned off and my eyes so impaired by injected blood that I could
see out of but one of them, and then
only by lifting the lid with my fingers,
It became necessary for me ?*> observe
for myself the position of the enemy's
ships. As I groped my way around the
protected deck with one hand * on the
inside of the armor-plating, a hundred-
pound shell struck and came through
It about a foot and a half from where
my band rested. In an instant my hand
a oa-uiitaui U����t. tuubi? Ol    .til?   akin
stuck to the metal plate���from the sudden heat engendered by the blow. I
was not aware tbat any fragment of
the shell or armor struck me, but my
clothing was rent to tatters by the detonation or concussion, as It seemed."
LAST NIGHT'S CONCERT.
The. s^kado Entertainment Was a
Great Success.
A crowded house greeted the singers
who gave the Mikado concert last
evening at the Kaslo Hotel Auditorium under the auspices of the Ladies'
Guijd of St. Mark's Church of England. Part I was a miscellaneous program, among which the vocal numbers
of Rev. D. Richards, Mrs. Boll and Mr.
Haller of MoGuigan wore especially
noteworshy. Mr. Halier appeared in a
Japanese song and a Gorman laughing
song, both in costume,nnd was warmly
encored. Part 1 concluded with a well
rendered and appropriate male quartette, "Tenting on the Old Camp
Ground," with au appropriate setting
romlnloent of war times.
Part II was made up of a large and
brilliantly costumed chorus of ladios
and gentlemen ln the garb of the
Flowery Kingdom,who gave the cream
of the opera, "The Mikado," and gave
it in excellent form. Among the soloists were Mr. Cook as Nahki Poo,
Murry Byers as Pooh Bah, and Samuel Fawcett as Lord High Executioner.
In the "throe little maids" song, Mes-
daines Robinson, Hodder and Lanlng
took the parts respectively of Yum
Yum, Peep Bo aud Pitti Sing in a
oharmlng manner. Everyone was delighted with the entertainment and
pronounced it a great success. >

book keeper with Green Bros.,is billed

An American visitor to Mr. Gladstone, some timo ago, says he noticed
on the old statesman's library table
certain magazines that aroused his
curiosity. On going, the visitor said:
"Before I leave I would like to ask you
one question." "What is it?" said Mr.
Gladstone. "I want to know-why it is
you have the American editions of the
monthly magazines that publish Eng-
lise editions?" "Oh," said Mr. Gladstone, "I subscribe for the English
editions for my wife, and for the American editions for myself, because I
want to read the American advertising.
1 want to read it for, several reasons.
It interests me as reading. It interests
me on account of the high character of
illustrations, and it is my means of
i.'uaging the material prosperity of the
country."

Iltllli FROM SKA WATER.
A  Correspondent   of   Karl   Scovil  Tells
About a Maine Plant.
Among the many plans for securing
gold, thut of taking lt from sea water
is occasionally hoard of, but the following extract from a letter of J. J. Dick-
sou to his friend Earl Scovil of this
city, gives details of a big plant at
Lubec, Maine, which overshadows all
previous olTorts In that line.
He says: "The company have contracted with theCushings of St. John,
for $60,000 worth of lumber. The process is a secret one, but It is believed
to consist of some chemical way of
extracting gold from sea water, it
seems it has long been known that the
soas contiguous to gold producing
countries, held in solution a certain
quantity of the yellow metal in the
shape of ohloride or salt of gold; but
the proportion per ton ot water was
thought to be so inflnitismal tbat it
would scarcely pay for treatment.
However, judging from the preparations this company is maklng,they must
be unguictt of suoows.".. _j
Lavina and Rnthle Bell Sale.
Chas. F. Caldwell, mining broker, informs us of an important mining deal

valuable silver-lead one north of the
north end of. the lake and was located
by Mr. McDonald and Norman McLeod about a year ago. Messrs. Booker and Vlets are the purchasers, the
former being one of the. owners of the
other portion of the property. The
property is on the divide between Ham��

ably developed.

EDITORIAL OUTCROPPINGS.
StiVer is rising steadily and the Slocan is once more "all right.
The city council has shown good
judgment in. the selection of Its building site.
Thf_iM.ieof tho .News appears., %i
hours earlier than was originally in-
A glance at tho hotel registers of
this city'shows that the spring, tide of
travel is gradually increasing in volume, While lt is not as yet by any
means heavy, it shows that the silvery
Sloean has not been forgotten in tho
recent late lamented rush of Alaska-
maniacs northward, but that its solid,
dividend payers are not by any means
forgotten in the scramble to pick up
nuggets in tho golden north. An old
lady, on her first view of the ocean, was
hoard to remark that she was glad to
���too something for once that thore was
enough of. It is a lamentable fact tbat
many a poor tenderfoot has already
seen enough of tho trials of getting to
the north, ot which he Is anything
but glad. Kootenay cannot fall to profit from this rush in tho long run.

Wh��l n��C01U��l of Mi-IhIs.
Tbe greater portion of the lead mined
is converted Into whit*, lead, red lead,
���un! orange materials, which are used
as pigments for paints. Much lead Is
manufactured into sheet, some into bullets and other projoctiloti, and the only
load which comes back into tbo market
In tho form of scrap ls that used for
lead pipes.
Zinc is largoly used ln galvanizing
steel or iron, in manufacturing brass,
as a sheet zinc, and as oxide of zinc
used in paint. The only 7,inc available
for tho new use is that used lu making
brass. Next to scrap iron and steel,
scrap brass is found on the market.
Most of the world's tin product ls
used In tin plates. The scrap is not
available and, though many efforts
have beon made to utilizo tin scrap, no
considerable amount of metal has been
obtained this way.
Next to iron and steel, copper Is
most used in metallic form, only a small
proportion being used In the salts of
oopper and bluo vitriol. Tho great
mass of copper is used in manufacture
of brass, of which it forms two-thirds,
In electrical conductors, sheet roofing,
cooking utensils and pipes.
Just what becomes of the enormous
amount of metal mined every year is a
mystery, as a very imall proportion is
returned in the form of scrap material.

AC'KTYI.KNK GAS.
Ai. Illuminaiit Greater Thai) On* or Klcc-
trlcity and not IluugorooH.
[J. T. Richardson in Nelson Miner.]
Much has beon said and written by
poople prompted by selfish motives, as
to the explosive nature of acetylene
gas, trying to alarm and dissuade users
of electricity and common gas from
adoptiug it. In England the explosive
department of the Home oflico made
various experiments to determine the
true character of the gas, and to issue
suoh information as should make the
use of acetylene iu the hands of the
general public perfectly safe. Tlie deductions mado based on tho experiments aro: That ncetylenogas "per se"
whon under a pressure of somothing
loss than two atmospheres (nearly 30
pounds) is liablo to explode, whereas
at a pressure of one and a half atmospheres it seems to be reasonably free
from explosion, provided that it is not
admixed with oxygen or atmospheric
air.
For commercial and practical purposes it is considered sufficient to allow
a pressure of 20 inches of water abovo
that of the atmosphere (i. e. roughly
about 16 pounds to the square inch) and
it is accordingly proposed to draw the
safety line at this point. In France
and Germany the authorities have
fixed the limit of dangor at ono and a
half and one and one one-tenth atmoB-
phores respectively.
Ono atmosphere is noarly equal to a
pressure of In pounds to tho squaro
Inoh. To produce a good light from
acetylene, the pressure requires to be
from one to two and a half ounces per
square inch. Tho dangor then of spontaneous combustion is Infinitely remov-
od and impossible.
That acotvlone is very popular in
Europe is evfdent from the fact that, in
addition to what is manufactured there,
the works at Merriton, Ont��, though
working night and day. are not able to
supply thodomand and additional works
are being erected in-different parts of
the country in order to meet this ovor
increasing demand for carbide. In the
United States acetylene, is making
great progress, the govornment having
now generators in every post office and
sub office in Philadelphia, and all
throughout tbat country machines for
generating this beautiful light are being sold in largo numbers.

A lady living in a fashionable quarter has a bit of statuary bearing the Inscription, "Kismet." The housemaid
was dusting the room the other day,
when the mistress appeared.
* "Sure, ma'am, what's the manin' of

asked the maid, referring to tho inscription on the statue.
" 'Kismet' means 'fate,' " replied the
mistress.
Bridget was limping painfully when
out with her sweetheart not long afterward, and he osked:
"What's tho matter, Bridget?"
, "Faith," was the answer,   "I have
