Is 80x100 feet, 2 1-2 stores high with
boiler shed addition and a drying kiln;
also a lumber shed attached, .'iiixiMi

were made lo order for Mr. Buchanan,
by Ballantyne Bros, at Preston, Ont.,'
last winter. They aro a heavy and efficient matcher, and a ton inch, four

included a picket header, emery grinder, mortiser, tenoner, _l inch surface
jointer, sand papering machine, dado
machine, band saws, jig saws and all
the other things usually found in such
a place. Somo very artistic work in

About two-thirds of the output of the
establishment is consumed in Kaslo,
the other third being sold at Nelson,

Engineers and mining men generally agree that the projected tunnel of
J. M. Harris to tap all the mines in the
North Hill, is one of the most ml
vaneed ideas of tbe age in milling,
says tho Sandon Mining Review. It
would cost anywhere from half to three
quarters of a million dollars, but it
would expose everything in tlio hill to
practical mining. If Mr. Harris can
get sufficient outside capital Interested,
he will be doing a great doal towards
making Sandon���the greatest mining
camp in the world, for it is generally
believed this hill is full of minoral.

Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 8.���W. J. Bryan
today gave the following statement to
the Associated Press:
"In view of the losses sustained by
the republicans in almost every state,
it would seem that the republican policy is not being indorsed at tho polls.
The sentiment in favor of the Chicago platform shows healthy growth
throughout the country. Perhaps our
opponents will now admit that silver is
not dead. The attempt to secure iu-
toriuitiotuil bimetallism has proved S
failure, and it, is now more apparent
that tho people of tho United States
must legislate for themselves on tinan-
al questions. Pree und unlimited
coinage tit 18 to 1 is nearer now than it
was a year ago. High tariff upon a
gold basis has disappointed thos,' republicans "ii" looked to it tor n ll f,

"We made tho best possible fight,

Tlio property known as the Hold Hill,
at about one and a half mill's southwest
��f Radarsburg, Mont,, is causing no little excitement in thnt vicinity owing to
the great amount of free gold that is daily
being taken therefrom. It is estimated
by conservative old-timers that the richest pail of the vein ii properly saved will
yield from $"."> to $150 per sack net. The
Hold Hill is by no melius u new discovery,
having been worked previous to nine or
ten years ago by the Omaha company,
but it was allowed to go by default. They
had sunk a shaft some 45 or 51) feet and
were just beginning to uncover the rich
ore when the thought, occurred to them
lo  hide  their find,  which   they  speedily
und to all appearances effectually did by
tilling the shaft up, but the eagle eyes
of Messrs. Charles Crane and William
Starkweather guided their footsteps near
the hidden treasure, and they at once remarked the locality and begun tin investigation by cleaning out the old shaft, lit
the bottom of which they found a well
defined lead of dolomite of pyrites assaying some $00 to the ton of gold. The main
lend is snnie three feet wide anil is snid

interesting contest for the properly, it

have a successful dredge mining enterprise at Bannock, Mont. Their representative, M. 1''. Klrkpatrick, was bidding for it by telephone, hut the owners
here closed with Souther. S. V. Davis,
ono of the owners, was hurrying down
from Idaho ('ily with Klrkpatrick. They
slopped ut the Half Way house and Klrkpatrick raised the bid to $41,000, but it
was too lute. He says he would have

Mrs. White Did  the   Donble   Cntarj
Amid Many Drawbacks.
Mrs. Harriet White, who recently
rode _00 miles on ber wheel in twenty-
two hours, was one of about seventy
who started out of New York to do the
double century with the Manhnttnn Bicycle Club. Three women were among
the starters, but Mrs. 'White was the
only one who finished.
During the run she encountered every
sort of weather.   For ten hours tbe mm
almost blinded her, and for ten more
she wns drenched to the skin nnil her
wheel slipped ut every turn.    During
tbe long, hard tilde she ate nothing but I
lee  cream  nnd  pic.   repented  two  or;
three times.    Through the long, dnrk,
rainy, terribly hot night she bud nothing but an occasional drink of soda.
At the end of the ride she said that she
fell  ns  though  her feet  would  bum
through her pedals.   One shoulder was
stiff, her right side wns bruised from n I
Call, and her hands were numb.    Mrs. !
White wore a divided skirt and rode a j

only-two gear.   She is n small woman.

The Milwaukee marriage market ls
In danger of a collapse. Not that there
is a slump In prices or a falling oil'
(either in lUpply or dcinaiiili of hymeneal material, but because the higher morality of the town has made a
protest against the business of marrying eloping couples. Por a number of
years this trading in marriage certificate! lias been flourishing tliere and
each season has seen an increase. Milwaukee hns become the (iretnn Green
of Chicago, and the entire West Is
pointing the finger or shame at her.
The whole blame lies with Ihe lax mar- i
riage laws of Wisconsin and tlio ,
aroused moral sentiment of the community Will ere long dem&nd ii repeal
of these statutes and the substitution ot
the evening. Cases are kniTtvn where
boys and girls have got Into a flirtation

the tie ls binding.
While all the preachers n'nd not n

of these lux laws, the principal benefl-
clarles are Kev. Wesley A. Ilunsbergcr,

Methodist Church, and Justices of the

I hey Will perform the ceremony cheaply and speedily, but. while they do a
good business, Dr. Hunsberger catches
the cream, because there Is a lingering
sentiment that marriage should be a
religious ceremony. Dr. Hunsberger
undoubtedly holds the marriage record
of the country, having united 2,079
couples during the past three years.
His fees have probably averaged $4
each���a total income for the three years
of $8,816 from this branch of his ministerial work. One Sunday lie married
eight couples ami a memorandum in his
own writing shows that his receipts
for  this   service    were    $76.50,     The
preacher is not ashamed of his work.
Ho says:
"Men who rail against me for marrying people -merely because they come
in large numbers���are like the foxes
who concluded the grapes were sour
when they found they were beyond

Milwaukee probably has double tin
number of mnrrlages of any other city
in the Union, In proportion to population. While eloping couples from the
neighboring town and cities of this
State come to have the knot tied, most
of the business comes from Chicago.
Iu Chicago the lawmakers evidently
regard the wedded state as a dangerous one, for they make It hard to get
Into and easy to get out of. Divorces
can be easily obtained, but there are
all sorts of difficulties to overcome
when you want to get married, particularly if secrecy Is desired. It Is necessary to procure nn expensive license
nnd the publication In the dally papers
of the names of the parties mentioned
ln the document makes secrecy almost
Impossible. That Is why Milwaukee ls

nothing else, that has caused the wonderful marriage record for the Grand

enormous distance nud the cost of
transport, the Russians have hitherto
had no opportunity to place llieir Siberian produce on the great European

Interesting Huhita of the Butnblebet

In early spring, when the meadows
lirst take on a tinge of green and the
apple trees put forth their rosy buds,
we may often see a single large bumblebee flying low and swiftly back nnd
forth across the lawns and pastures.
These great bees are queens who have
just awakened from their long winter's sleep, and are now seeking some
favored sjkm wherein to commence
housekeeping and found a colony; for
these Insects, like their cousins, the
honeybees, live In colonies, consisting
of three classes or castes.���"drones," or
moles; "queens." nr females, and
"workers." When our big queen has
at last discovered a satisfactory building site, usually a deserted mouse hole,
she cleans It of all rubbish and litter

which she lays her eggs. The young
grubs batch out possessed with enormous appetites, hnd feeding on the
pollen, cat Into it in all directions. At
butt, when fully grown nud their craving for food Is satisfied, they spin cocoons of silk In tlie remains of the pollen and change to pupae. While her
family is thus sleeping quietly within
their silken cells, the old queeu Is con-
slant'.y at work building up nnd
strengthening the t ooiis with wax.
Finally, their sleep being over, the
pupil cases burst, and the young bees
come forth in all their glory of black
and golden livery and gauzy wings.
The first brood consists entirely of
workers, who Immediately fall to aud
relieve their tired mother queen of all
work and duties with tlie exception of
laying eggs. They fly hither and thither, always busy and Industrious, now

hollyhock or a sunny dandelion, or bussing about among the modest daisies.
or diving lienid llisl into snnie sweet-

And deep in both our hearts they rouse
One wail for thee and me.

To know that each is thinking of,
Nor yet the end; be our lips dumb
In smiles a little season yet,
I'll tell thee, when the end Is come,
How we may best forget.

As noted In the last issue of tbe

pioneer, has been to Rossland and this
is the Interview the Kossland ttecord
obtained from him:
"When will the Pilot Bay smelter
start operations?" Mr. Wright was
"One of the proprietors told me that
the smelt,���!��� would be started as soon as
t here were three or four thousand tons
of ore to start wltb. It Is understood
that the smelter intends to eventually
erect rollnlug' works, to separate the
lead from the silver. The lead and
silvor will then command market value
in any part of tbo world. At present
there are no refining works In Canada."
Ti,,' iliilr of Smelting.
"What Is the cheapest rate for which
ore can be treated at tbe I'ilot Hay
"That depend- on the character cf
the orr.    Owing to the   fact    that  the
Bmelter is but eight, miles from tho
source of supply, transportation
eliarges do not figure in tbe treatment
charges. The mine owners dump the
ore into bunkers. The ore is then
loaded upon sepws and taken to the
smelter by tbe company's tugs. Most
ofthe Ainsworth ore Is concentrating
ore. Borne of this ctiu be concentrated
for from 7.', cuts to $2 per ton. Some
ores yield much more than others. If
tho ore is pure load oro il can be
smelted (or SI2 per ton. Ores that contain silica can lie treated more cheaply for such can be used to treat other
Ores, Probably there is somo ore that
can be smelted for nothing, if thc
smelter is short of'that particular kind
of flux. Neutral ores which contain
equal parts of iron and silica and ore
free from zinc, can be treated at a nominal rate when taken In connection with
ores carrying large proportions cf
lead. Ainsworth camp lias nil tho variety of ores needed Io llu.x each other, and plenty of lime at the Blue

Adjournment Taken Without Action
to 25th Inst.
At tho meeting of the local stockholders of the Noble. Five, held in
Kaslo last Friday night, Dr. W. A.
Hendryx presided. It was decided to
tfet enough stock represented to defeat
the proposed bylaw amendment for
the borrowing of $150,000, If   possible.
At the meeting at Cody on the next
day, the follow! ng were present; Vice-
president and General Manager Johi
G. McGlIigan, Secretary l'\ J. Kidman
and Business Manager G. B. McDonald, recently appointed to succeed Ross
M. Sherman. Thero were present
from Sandon, Messrs. Walbridge
Woods and Kidd and from Kaslo,
Messrs. Hendryx,Keen and Green.
Only 780,0110'shares ofthe 1.200,000
of tho company's stock being represented   at this meeting which was _0,-
000 short of tbo necessary two thirds
required to pass a bylaw, the meeting
was adjourned until November 25. It
is generally conceded that the bylaw
will not be brought up again, but at
the next meeting, plans will be adopted to reopen tbo mine and mill and
have the whole all'air placed in tho
hands of a competent liquidator who
shall proceed to work the mine on
business principles and ti'ot it out of

"Work on the Crow's Nest road is
already in progress on this Side of the
Crow's Nest Pass, nnd about 100 miles
of track have been laid. Tbe work is
being done in liye-iuile contracts, and
M. .1. Haney, who has charge of the
construction, says that the line will bo
completed to tbo Kootenay river by
August 1, 18118, at the latest, and possibly a month soon r. Tlie road will
cross the Kootenay rive,��� about half a
mile below Wardner, ano then making
a bend will pass through th,. otrtaklBtS
of tbo latter place. The real town will
bo Cranbrook, about 1_ miles from tbo
river. This site has been settled upon
byConel Baker, minister of mines, who
owns the land, and the ('. I'. R. At
present tho site of the future metropolis of tbo district is a tremendous field
of oats,occupied only by a ranch bouse,
but it has boon made a postofflce and
the headquarters of the mining recorder." ,
A. \V. McVittioof Ft. Steele, talks in
an interview in tlio Spokane Chronicle
as follows:
"Ft. Steelo is the original town of
tho district. It has now a population
of over 1,000 and has natural advantages whicli will make it a permanent
town, whether or not it ha-- a railway
outlet. In fact, as tho natural supply
center of a very large milling district,
a railway will iio compelled to build ti
branch into Fort Steele within a very
few years.
"Tho next townsite of Importance is
Wardtiei', situated at the crossing of
the Kootenay river and the ('row's
.Vest railway, which is now being
graded at that point.
"Tbo third townsite of importance is
that of Cranbrook. This place, while
only recently located, has u promising
future in sight, as the Crow's Nest railway owns half of tbe lots and are making it a divisional point, with the probable Intention of extending a spur track
therefrom to the North Star and Sullivan groups. From those two latter
districts from 200 to ,'100 tons of oro por
day will bo shipped as soon as transportation facilities can be secured,
"Tlie mining outlook in that district
is very promising. Many claim owners wero doing development work when
1 loft last week, and thoy will continue
throughout the winter. It is expected
that by the time the railway is completed, which will probably bo in the
spring of 181)9, there will bo at least a
score of producing mines, shipping
many hundreds of tons per day. The
interests of the district next year will
be greatly advanced by the rivalry and
competition of two distinct steamboat
companies. New boats aro now being
constructed, and will be ready for service next spring, to run in competition
with the Upper Columbia Transportation Company. This will not only assure a big reduction in freight rates,
but will give us more regular and frequent service in and out of the district."

Old Mill   In  Cumberland   Gnp   Which
Did Service In the Civil  Wnr.
There is standing at Cumberland
Gap, Just across ihe Slate line from
Middleslioro.  Ky.. an historic old mill,
which during the civil war ground tbe
breadstuff for thousands of Confederate and federal soldiers.
The mill Is located at Ihe foot of the
fain,his Pinnacle mountain on the south
side, ll has an overshol wheel of the
old-fashioned kind about the same sl/.e
tiiiil almost a duplicate of the noted
walcrwlieel which attracts so much nl
tcntiou near the entrance to the Tennessee centennial. The mill was built
by John Locke, who came from North
Carolina about 1806, The stones which
formed the foundation of Ilie structure
were hauled from the old north state
at a cost of $160. Locke operaled II
successfully for many years, and after
he had accumulated a small fortune he
built a flour mill just above It. He also
creeled a carding factory and au up-
rlghi sash sawmill, All the machinery
was run hy the famous cave spring of
the   Pinnacle  mountain,  which Bushes
(Jeli. George Morgan ordered the mills
to be fired, as he did not wish them to
remain In operation and give succor to
the Confederacy, Accordingly a squad
of men was detailed lo do the work.
They had just set fire lo the flouring
mill when the Confederate batteries
from the adjacent mountains opened
lire ou the Federal works. The squad
lost no time In getting under cover, and
as the wind blew the flames away from
tlie corn mill it was saved. It has not
been in operation for several years and
may never grind again.
origin or "Blue Blood,"
The origin of Ilie term "blue blood"
Is most suggestive. After tlie black
Moors were driven out of Spain the
aristocracy of Spain was held Io consist of Ihose who traced their lineage
back to the time- before the Moorish
Conquest. These people were whiter
than those who had been mixed with
Moorish blood. The veins upon their
while bands were blue, while Ilie blood
of the mosses, contaminated by the
Moorish Infusion, showed black upon
their hands nud faces. So the white
Bpanlards of the old race came to de-
���out of King Solomon's cave U0O feet
above the level of the valley.
It comes from the mountain side a
veritable torrent, foaming, hissing,
seething, currying huge bowlders before it and cutting a channel through
the everlasting rocks In Its mad rush
to tlie valley below. This torrent, according to the estimate of mechanical
engineers, would furnish 100 horse
power, and although old man Locke
harnessed only a part of the turbulent
stream to his wheels he secured sufli-
eicnt power to operate the machinery
for many years. At his death a few
years prior to the war John C. Newly
bought the plant and lie owned It when
the war broke out. He furnished the
Confederacy with thousauds of bushels
of meal and hundreds of barrels of flour
ground by these old mills, and when
the Federal army took possession of
the Gap the same burrs made breadstuff for Uncle Sam's men. When the
Confederates began storming the Gap
prior to the Federal forces evacuating

Formerly li  was the ruse that  there!
was  tio  horse   for  the  stockman,   the
cattle-grower,  like Ilie    Texas    pony
which had run wild for the first four
OT   five  yenrs  of   lis  life.     I.eiin   and
sinewy ns an Arab with the endurance i
of nn Indliiu and a capacity for sternly '<
siieed  that can only  be likened  to B:
locomotive he wns a treasure.    Well
seasoned, n row pony could be ridden
100 miles in n single dny nnd come out
of the encounter With fatigue with Hying colors.
The wild horse, however-Hint same
animal which Hie 10-cenl novelist describes hs Ihe "fiery unturned sleed"���
believes ihc sweets of freedom are sol
very sweet Hint nil his bretlieru In
bondage should share them With this
In ml 11,1 tin lefore he swoops down upon the inelosure of the riinchinnn, Induces the row ponies to brave the terrors of jumping a bnrbwlre fence nnd
Hikes chances on clearing the sides of
the corral. The result is thai the stock-
than, unless one of the riders stops ou
guard, Is likely to wake up 111 the morning nud liuii his herd stampeded.
' If It Is the round-up lite first thing
the wranglers know a thunder of hoofs
routes from the prairie, a shrill neigh
lug, which Hie herd answers In equally
shrill   notes.    The  hoof    bents  sound
nearer and nearer, the herd   grows
mote  nnd  more  excited and    uneasy.
until finally the wild mustangs dash
In ami mingle with the row ponies and
In n moment more nil ate off for some
place,   no    one     knows     where.     The
wranglers, or herders, will be fortunate. Indeed, If they can control their
own animals nud avoid being forced

To Cure Female Ills���Some True
Reasons Why Mrs. Hnkham
Lb More Successful Than
tho Family Doctors.
A womnn Is si, It; r.ome. disease peculiar to her sex is fast developing in ber
system. ISl.e goes to hor family physician nnd tells him a. story, but not Ihe
���whole story.
She holds something bnek, loses her
bead, becomes agitated, forgets what
aho wants to suy, und finally conceals
what she ought to have told, und thus
completely mystifies tho doctor.
ls it uny wonder, therefore, that tho
doctor fails to cure thc disease? Still,
we cannot blame tbo woman, for it ia
very embarrassing to detail somo of
thc symptoms of her suffering, even to I
her family physician.
It was for this reason  that years i
ago Mrs. Pinkham, at  Lynn,  Mass.,
determined  to   step in nnd help her
sex.     Having had considerable   ex- I
pcrienco in treating female ills with i
her Vegetable Compound, sbo encouraged the women  of America to write
to her for advice, in regard to  their
complaints,  nnd,  being  a woman, it
wns easy for her ailing sisters to pour
into her ears every detail of their suffering.    Over one hundred thousand
women wero successfully treated by
Mrs. Pinkham lnat year.   Such are the
grand results nf her ovourienee.

And nt the Kntl of Fifty Yearn When
She Tried Mie Could Not.
There Is possibly no oilier woman In
the world like Miss Experience Gull-
foni, of Bluehlll, Me. it is proverbial
Hint a woman's tongue never stops,
hut Miss Guilford's case is nn exception
to this rule, nnd for half a century she
bus held ber pence. Not one single
word or audible sound litis this woman
allowed to puss her lips I'or a period of
fifty yenrs.
The original reason for Miss Uull-
ford's speechlessness was anger because she could nol marry the man of
her choice. When she was 111 years old
she ft 11 lu love with William Simpson.
the village schoolmaster, They were
to be married on .lime IS. 1847. One of
Miss Guilford's rejected sullors told
lilies aboul the schoolmaster, and Miss
Guilford's parents slopped the wedding.   Miss Guilford thereupon said:
"I swear 1 will not speak u word,
I hough I live for fifty years, unless I
marry this mini."
She kept ber pledge. Her parents
died, ami she went to live with her
married brother. When he died she
made her home with n slsler, und after
the sister's death she wen I lo a ramp
In the woods, und kept bouse for a
brother, with whom she Is now living,
All this time she pci'l'oiincd her share
of ihc household work, ami did not
show any regret foi' having made the
vow. When the fifty years of silence
expired she was visited by u large number of relatives and friends, who went
to the (amp for the purpose of being
present when she was nl liberty to
spettk. Soon after the nilddny meal
Miss Guilford dressed herself In the
garments she hnd not worn for hull' n
century. At 2 o'clock she stood before
the people, smiled mid opened her
mouth to speak; but though she tried
bard, und got red lu the fnee in trying,
she could not utter it sound. Her vocal
muscles hnd become atrophied from
long disuse und refused to work.
When Miss Guilford found she could
not speak she sent to Bangor for a phy-
slclnn and took to her bed. The doctor
gnvc no hope of recovery, but sitgg"st-
ed thnt she be sent to n Boston hospital for treatment. As soon ns Miss
Guilford gets strong enough to take the
journey she will ntnke another effort to
regnln her speech. Her father left her
a good sum of money at his death,
which hns been growing every year In
a savings bnnk, so that she is well able
to obtain the treatment she requires.
The Horseless Carriage.
Next to the bicycle, the horseless carriage will, for short rides, be the mechanical conveyance of the greatest
blessing to humanity, and the interest
of the public In this vehicle will be so
great that inventors and manufacturers
will redouble their energies to mnke
a conveyance that will nil thin demand.
The horseless carriage which Is to be
the conveyance of the future must be
soltl nt a more reduced price tlitin Ilie
horseless  carriage   of   to-day   costs.
When this time comes the advantages
of such n mode of conveyance will be so
ninny that the problem of traversing
short distances win be satisfactorily
solved. Inasmuch ns one of the greatest manufacturing firms of the highest
grade of bicycles the world over hns
ecently reduced the price of Its wheels
very materially, we look with encouragement to this firm to be the one to
produce the best horseless carriage and
the lowest one In price, considering the
material used ami the skilled workmanship employed.
When the horseless carriage conies
down in price It will become a .leeessi-
ty. At present a horse must be kept
for bad weather by people who nre unable, through weakness or poor health,
to go about,.
There ure upward of 2,000 horseless
carriages In use ln Purls for public service, nnd private citizens can muster
more than this number. Indeed, Europeans are much more familiar with
them than Americans arc. The Horseless carriage Is In very common use lu
Europe, although it Is cumbersome and
unwieldy. The general opinion is that
since American genius has taken up ihe
mutter the horseless carriage will become i, greal success.
The horseless carriage has more advantages than appears at first sight.
Of course there must be a place to keep
It, The horse, the feed, the clearing up.
the constant breakage of harness and
the perpetual annoyance of feeling that

will give place lo the ease and comfort
with which the horseless carriage .-an
be kept. It will not be difficult to learn
to manage these carriages, and when
repair shops heroine frequent, the problem of getting about will be so simplified that everybody will wonder why
We never had such a convenient vehicle
An expert In mechanics is the authority for the assertion that tbe Horseless
carriage will run n much more successful nnd rapid career, everything considered    than    the    bicycle���New   York

Better cut these rules out.
The Alaskan Dog.
The Alaskan dog Is almost human In
Intelligence. lie weighs about 11111
pounds. Heavily laden, he will travel
ns many as sixty miles a day.
With twenty dogs in a train 110 two of
them are lu 11 straight line from the
driver. When unhitched for the night
I hey pile upon Hit- Hist blanket Hint is
thrown upon the snow, nud there they
stay. When you crawl Into your sleeping hag anil pull a robe over It the dog
will nn under the robe. Unless you arc
careful he will be Inside of the bug lu
the morning. Their endurance is phenomenal and they arc capable of strong
affection.   They arc ureat lighters.
A traveler who recently returned
from Alnskn says of ihe treatment accorded these faithful animals:
"The whli) thai is used on them Is
the cruelesl thing of Its kind thnt is
known lo man. Thirty feet tn length
und two Inches thick near the short
handle, it lias a lash ten feet long that
cuts like a knife. The Russian knout
Isn't In It. When a dog Is struck you
hear a sharp yelp, and then your sleigh
whirls past n bit of fur or possibly a
piece of bloody skin lying on the suow.':
