TEMPLE WORSHIP.
"Forsake not the gathering of yourselves
together."���The Christ.
A Brahman priest was once asked by
a European why they worshipped idols
and he answored with a look of supreme contempt of such display of ignorance, that liiey did not worship
idols, but that they were placed in the
temples for the purpose of thought concentration; lie was then asked why
they were made so nifty, and he replied
that if they were made beautiful they
would captivate tho senses and thus
defeat the objoct they wore there for,
by drawing the mind of the worshipp ir
away from ioftier themes.
Tho above is of course contra to
tho testimony of missionaries who are
never weary of informing us that the
Ea9t is steeped in paganism, and tbat
spiritual darkness broods over the land.
Somo few know, however, that the
wost has nothing in religion to offer
the east that it does not possess already.
True worship is thought concentration upon a given theme, it is the
ability to raise the thought power to u
certain point and hold it there���a most
difficult feat as anyone can soon learn
by trying to concentrate one's mind
upon a given subject to the exclusion
of all else; it will not take many sec
onds 'before thoughts wildly foreign
will dart out on all sides and it is this
"jumble," as ono might term it, of
ideas that, makes it so difficult for tho
masses of mankind to obtain their sin
cere desires.
Now, it is a well established occult
law that whatsoever man desires sin
oerely, if lie sends out his ileeire' in the
form of nn intense aspiration or prayei
and waters it with lirm expectation,
believing that he Will receive, he will
obtain hia wish. ''Ask and it shall
be given you" says The Great Teaohei
and no liner illustration of the unori
ing aocuraoy of this law can be given
than that of the late Mr. Muller, the
founder of the Bristol Homes for Orphans. This man received over ��1,500,*
000 simply by the power of prayer, ho
never having asked a person for a
penny, but ho never doubted but that
what he wanted would be sent to him,
and it was!
Bringing this law to boar on temple
worship, whon thousands assemble together, and having beon trained in
thought concentration, prooeed to med
ltato upon a given theme". The dyn
tunic force of such an outburst is something enormous, and as the strong help
the voak, tremendous spiritual benefit
is thus obtained by all and this ll true
public worship.
Our present church rituals are tho
outcome of this, and while thoy are, in
many cases, carried to a magnilicent
and beautifully emotional point���notably with thc Anglican, Roman Catholic and Creek Churches���it would be
sheer presumption to state that tho
original has not beon lost sight of and
ip service has taken the place of
thought concentration as above outlined.
It is interesting to note the different
religious attitudes taken whiloat pious
exercises, the Christian kneels, some
sit; the Mohamedan postures on all
fours; the Buddhist sits cross leggod;
while the Druids of old stood erect
amid the groves of oak. One thing
mny bo stated and that is that it is not
possible to have any control ovor tho
mind if oue is In an uncomfortable
position, and kneeling bare on a stone
slab or wooden floor will have a greater
tendency to draw tha mind to an aching knee joint than to. the subject one
has presumably come to meditate upon.

destroyed, with a clothing shipment of
_00 bolls to New York which was being

A special from Bed Cliff says:
Nothing is heard in Eagle county but

be little timber left to tell the talc. A
Country now sending volumes of fire and
smoke heavenward is Bear Willow and

swept on Camp Fulford, which has already been scorched from another direc-

desired by the cominnndiiig general in
that island. All troops at Camp Monde
will soon be ordered to points in the
soutli. Some of them may go to Cuba,
but the majority will, for the present,
occupy the new camps recently selected
in tieorgin  mid  South Carolina.
It is expected the troops sent, to garrison Culm will not remain long, and when
they have seen service for a few months
will return to this country. The same is
probably true ns to Puerto Rico.
It is also intimated tbat when thc
troopa return the volunteers will be given

that time congress will hnve had opportunity to determine what shall be done
iii regard to garrisoning the new possessions.
This determination is no doubt due

���EH
WHEN Rodney Hare came
home from the wnr without
his strong right arin Kuth
Trevor's friends wondered if she would
marry him.
"Of course she will," snid nhe friend
who knew ber best. "Why shouldn't
She? He's the snine Rodney Dure now
that he was when she promised to marry him. Isn't hcV"
"Yes, but there's a difference," was
the reply. "Then be bad another arm
to tight the battle of life with. Now-
well. I suppose it won't make any difference with Ruth, She always was
peculiar."
''Thank God for suoh peculiarity."
said her friend. "She wouldn't lie the
woman I have always lwllcved her to
be If she refused to many him because
lit* had lost an arm. She will take He
place to him. I know Ruth Trevor too
well to believe that the idea has ever
occurred to her that this loss need make
the .lightest difference In their plnns."
And her friend was right. When,
one day, Rodney Dare snid to Ruth: "I
bave come io toll you thai of course I
do uot expect to hold you to your promise to nn*. under existing circumstances, if you care to withdraw it,"
she rose up before him with something
akin to anger lu her face and looked
him squarely in the eyes.
"Have I ever given you any reason to
think 1 cared to withdraw it?" she
asked.
"NO," was the reply.   "Hut when ynil
gave ii I was a man.    .Now I am but '
part of one."
"I'll tnke that part of the man that's [
left." she said.    "It's the part lliat the1
Rodney  Hare  I  love lives in.    Never
speak of this to me again," she added.
And he never did. 4
Put he would not talk of mintage
until he had obtained employment of
sonic sort, and for this he began to lit
himself. It was almost like beginning
life over in learning to make one arm
do the work of two, bin he had a brave i
heart and a strong will, and love stood
ready to help him iu the rimer, when be
felt inclined to become discouraged.
One day Until snid to liim:
"I'm going away for a inontib or two.
I've had 11 letter from Auiuf Martha,
who lives iu the prettiest little country
village you ever saw, ami she wants
me to visit her. I shall enjoy a breath
of pure air so much! Only. 1 wish you
were going w 1 till me. Kodney. I shall
think of you back here In the city, and
feel half ashamed of myself for having such a good time that you cannot
share."
"I shall share It in thinking how
much good It is doing you." he said.
"Oue doi*s no,t always have to take part
lu the pleasures of others to be benefited by them. There's a sort of reflex
Influence, you know."
"That sounds quite mnraphysical,"
laughed Ruth, "but I think 1 understand what you mean awl 1 promise to
enjoy myself to the utmost in order
that you may feel ibis 'reflex Influents'
to the fullest extern."
Before Ruth had Heen at Aunt Martini's two days she found that she had
been Invited there for a purpose.
'"Your cousin Ilngli is coming next
week," said A11 nil Martha. "I wanted
you to moot him. 1 know you'll like
hlm���at least, I hope you will, nnd the
better you like him the better suited
I'll be."
Ruth looked at her questlonlngly.
"You wonder what sort of a plan I
have In iny head. 1 suppose," said her
aunt. "I'm not, going to say anything
more about It now. but Hugh knows."
"I Infer that It iss some sort of matrimonial plan," said Unrh. "If lt Is, put
lt aside at once! 1 may like iny coiiinln
very much���I hope 1 shall���but I could
not marry him."
"Why?" asked Aunt Martha.
"Because I am to marry Rodney
Dare," answered Ruth.
"And who Is Rodney Dare?" demanded Aunt Martha.
Then Ruith told her about her lover.
"A man with one arm, too!" cried
Aunt Martha, "ami a poor man, too!
You're foolish, Ruth."
"Perhaps ao," said Ruth, quietly, but
wltb a brave steadfastness ln her
voice. "But, fooliB.h or not, I love him.
I have promised 10 marry him and I
shall keep my word."
"You've got the stubbornness of the
Trevors In you, I see," said Aunt Martha, grimly. "But this���this obstinacy
of youre may make a great difference
with your future prospects, as well as
my plans. I have considerable property that must go to the children of my
two brothers. You represent one of
them, Hugih the other. I wanted you to
marry each other and keep the property together. If you persist In your
determination to marry this Rodney
Dare, Hugh may get it all."
"Let him have W," said Ruth. ".Ul
the wealth In the world wouldn't Influence me tn the least In this matter."
"You're a Trevor, all through," said
Aunt Martha, angry, yet admiring the
spirit of her niece ln 'epdte of herself.
"Well, since you've made up your mind,
we'll let the matter drop; but If you are
not mentioned in my will you needn't
be surprised."
"I haven't asked to lie remembered
in it." said Ruth. "I don't want you to
think for a moment, Auut Martha, that
I cure for your money. 1 assure you, 1
have never given it a thought."
"Perhaps uot," responded Auut Martin^ "but money comes handy sometimes, and one wants to think twice before throwing away such a chance as
this."
"I could not change my mind if I
were 10 think a thousand times." said
Ruth. "1 am just old-fashioned enough
to believe that there are other things
more necessary to one's happiness thun
money."
"Very well, you'll do ns you choose
about it, of course," said Aunt Martini,
frigidly. "But I think my opinion worm
considering, notwithstanding."
Cousin Hugh came. Ruth liked him.
but be wasn't Rodney Dare! Millions of
money wouldn't have templed her to
marry him If she had had no lover.
"1 suppose you haven't changed your
mind about matters and things?" said
Aunt Martha, one day, the week before
Ruth weini home.
"Not In the least," replied Ruth.
"You're a foolish girl," said Aunt
Martha.
"Maybe, but I think not." responded
Ruth.
When she got home she told Rodney
all about Aunt  Martha's plans.
"Do yon think I was' foolish?" she
asked, smiling into his face.
"I thiuk you're a noble, true-hearted
Uttle woman," he answered, and kissiil
���her. "I hope you'll never regret giving
up your share of your aunt's fortune
for a man with but oue arm to protect
you with. I feel unworlJiy of such a
sacrifice."
"There was no sacrifice about It,"
said Ittiili. "I didn't care for the fortune and I do care for you."
Six months later a telegram en.ine
Snylng thai Aunt Martha was dead.
Would Uuih come to the funeral?
Ruth went, and after the funeral she
ami cousin Hugh sat down in tlie Old-
fashioned parlor together, with Aunt
Manila's old lawyer and one or two of
Rodney took the large document from
Ruth's lap and unfolded it and glanced
over ihe bulf-writteu, half-printed
page.
"It means." he said, "that you're a
wealthy little woman in spite of yourself, Ruth. Your Aunt Martha bad
half her property deeded to you before she (lieu. That which she spoke
of in her will was the other half of it,
whicli had not been deeded away, and
yon, of course, supposed that represented all. She leaves you her old
home, aud oilier property in its vicinity, to the vnlue of a Rood ninny thousands of dollars, I should say."
"It can't be!" cried Ruth, excitedly.
"And(yet it inusl lie so. Read her letter, Rodney���rend It aloud, und maybe
it'll seem clearer to me."
Rodney read:
"My Dear Niece Ruth: I do not think
1 hnve very long to lige, therefore I
shall so arrange matters now thnt
there need be little trouble in disposing
of. what I leave behind, when I am
dead. When you told me you could not
fall in with my plan about a marriage
with Hugh I was indignant. If I had
died then, you would have got little
from me if 1 could have hnd my way
about It. But by-nnd-by I began to
think it over and 1 came to believe that
you were right and 1 was wrong. I
calculated from the head, you from the
henrt, and the heart Is to be trusted
most in such matters, I think. 1 admire
you I'or your honesty to your womanhood, and your loyally to your one-
armed lover. You did just right, my
dear niece���just right!���and to prove
to you that I bear you no ill-will for
not falling in with an old woman's
foolish plnns. I shall have half my
property deeded to you at once, so that,
nt any time after my death, wliich I
have reason to believe may happen at
any time, innl suddenly, all there will
be for you will be to take possession.
Hod ltless you. dear Ruth, and make
you very happy with the mnn you
have chosen.    He ought to lie proud of
so loyal-hearted a wife as you will
make him. Sometimes think kindly of
the woman who never got much happiness out of life, and mny this legacy
bring you more enjoyment than it has
ever brought   mc."
"Hear Aunt Martha!" said Ruth, softly, with tears rolling swiftly down her
cheeks. "I wish she could know how
much I thank her for her legacy���and
her letter. Ho you know. Rodney, I'm
not sure 1 int I vnlue that most?"

"I hnve brought my legncy home

return, as she deposited a package
wrapped In thick brown paper, nnd securely tied up, on the parlor table. On
the wrapper was written: "Ruth Trevor, to be given her, unopened, after

penmanship.
"You don't mean to say that you
we're left nothing but that?'' cried Mrs.
Trevor.
"It's ss ranch as I expected," answered Ruth.
That evening Rodney Dare came In.
Suddenly Ruth bethought her of the
package, which had not been opened.
"I must show you my legacy," she
said, bringing the package. "Cut the
strings, Rodney, please."
He did so and Ruth took the old worn
Bible from Its wrappings. As she did
ao, some papers slipped from between
Its pages and fell to tbe floor. She
stooped and gathered them up. One
was a somewhat bulky document. The
other was an envelope, on which her
name waa written.
"Here's a letter from Aunt Martha,"
she said, and opened it.

and bewilderment.

li' AXi) DOING.
In view of ihc business activity that
prevails at tlie present time in other
sections of tho Kootenay, it will bo
pertinently asked whether we in Kaslo
are doing enough to bring tlie advantages of the Slocan and Lardo-Duncan
diet riots to the attention of the mining
capitalists and tlio business man generally. It is not enough to be surrounded on all sides with unquestionable manifestations of mineral wealth.
We must, have capital to develop them,
even to tho point where the larger corporations and individuals will begin to
take even a slight interost in them,
and in order to attain this desirable
end no effort should bo spared by all of
us as a community, as well as personally as individuals. There is no denying the fact that the Slocan and Lardo-
Duncan districts are at this moment
overshadowed by the prominence accorded to tho Rossland and Nelson
districts, and particularly the former,
where deals on a tremendous scale are
(roin,:' through and carrying every tiling
before them. As a result of this for-
oii;ii investors particularly arc broughl
to think that the two districts in ques-
. lion arc the only ones worthy of consideration. We must disabuse the
public mind as to this, and to do so we
must bring  .ueh   unmista i   evi
dence tbat will leave on ,. rid uty in
the minds ol those who casuallj glance
iver tbe publications Issued in the interests of mining of this Province. To
iio this wo will bave to be up and doing,
aud like au .;, e e merchant who
is constantly on tbe look out tor an opportunity in push bis business. We
must, among other tilings, while admitting thai tbe Slocan is made up
largely of silv ir-load propositi'.." .. that
it i.i not exclusively so.   Thai we have
the True Blue what promise! to become another Hall mino and in the Le-
viatban, across the lake, another La
Koi.   Kor is tin ���������   anything  wil l  or
tnerloal about these statements, for
\r have only to no back a few years In
ibo history of tbe Rossland camp to
Unci records of statements made by
prominent mineralogies! and mining
uxperls that thero was nothing there,
und claim.-; that were then brushed
aside with a contemptuous sweep, aro
selling liko the proverbial Good Friday
bun at a million dollars or more. So
let tin one say or think tlmt wo bave
uot in' '/' '''-I i inspects right bore us auy
Blimp in the Koolonays, and having
fully realized that fact, to get up and
make it known for it is the collective
energy of many minds that brings
about successful results in all busluess
undertakings of tbe klud we refer to.
The proposition to send a man to
London noxt year as suggested in our
last issue should be taken up and discussed with Sandon. Five hundred
dollars apiece would be the best investment we ever made; provided always
that a good live man be obtained and
one who is familiar with the ways of
���John Bull when he is at homo. We
understand that tho Board of Trade is
bringing out a descriptive pamphlet on
the district. This would be good literature to distribute next year in London, and a special edition might be got
out for that purpose. Everyone interested in the advancement of the city
can help by distributing the literature
among friends and acquaintances.
While a combined effort in this direction will accomplish groat things let it
l.e watered with the firm conviction
that a great future awaits us on the
part of the citizens of Kaslo and residents around, and many unlooked for
but welcome things will, most assuredly, come to pass.
We notice that the Kootenaian can't
find any humor in tlio papers so it has
started a cerebrofactory of its own.
We have much pleasure in giving an
unequivocal "Hoar, hear!" to the
article, on "Enemies of Kaslo" in this
week's issue of the Kootenaian.
Microbes in general are regarded
with well deserved distrust by the public, but if Dr. Herz, a German experimenter, has actually discovered an

The Kaslo News objects to its being
said that tho clergy of that town are

that the divines havn't helped a bit.

responsibility.���The Ledge.

iu the United States, where the working classes are held up as being in,

nonsense! It is an open question
whether, surrounded as ho is with a
drudging toil made harder, in too many
cases, with the nervous fear that comes
of thc possibility ol losing his job and
not boing able to find another. It is
also an open question whether the
average American laborer is any better
off than his Mexican confrere, who is
happy with his tortilla and beans, with
an occasional drop of pulque; who Uvns

The British Columbia News is turning tho X-rays of occultism upon puhlie
affairs. Will it kindly direct them
upon tho intellect of ono Joseph Martin, and tell a waiting public ' how tho
pugnacious politician from tho prairies
proposes to promote himself to the premiership?���Province.
The indomitable enterprise of tho
citizens of New Westminster in at once
setting to work rebuilding their ruined
homes suggests tbe reflection that the
conspicuous growtli and greatness of
the British Empire are much less tbe
result, of conquest by the sword than of
conquest over tho soil and over adverse
circumstancos. This is a consideration the importance of which it is not
easy to over-estimate at the present
timo, when there is a marked tendency
to exploit the doctrine of imperialism
as if it were synonymous with tho reign
of force.���Montreal Witness.
One of tho hardest questions British
Columbia has to wrestle with is what
to do with the Chinese. In tbo East
the almond-eyed celestials aro looked
on more or less as curiosities. They
run laundries and are carefully looked
after by people of missionary instincts.
In the west it is different. The Celestial has crowded himself into various
b'-ancbes of wood, till be has become a
positive menace to white labor. In
mines, on railroads, wherever labor is
required, the Chinumau is found ready
to take the wages offered, be they high
or low. His traetability aud subrais-
tiveness make him a favorite with big
employers. He is a keen competitor in
tlie labor race, his ability to subsist on
anything or nothing, giving his white
opponent a heavy handicap. In the
cities' of British Columbia are the
Chinese quarters, where thousands of
followers of Li Hung Chang, crowd
together in filth, breed pestilence or
servo for a roosting spot for any disease that may bo passing. The proposition to put a JS00 duty on eaoh Chinaman entering the country comes from
theso cities. It comes from tho people
who know the Chinaman best.���Toronto Telegram.
CBANGK8 IN MINING LAW'S.
The following changes in tho British
Columbia mining laws should bo carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this i'rovince;
First of these refers to thc location
of fractions. In nil fractions surveyed**
from uow on, whether staked correctly
or not, tho surveyor may adopt the.
boundary lints of tho surrounding
claims, provided no sido excoeds loOO
feet in length, lu other words, the locator is'entitled to tbo vacant ground
that ho claims, even if he does not
stake it it. luoh a manner as to include
it all, whliti he seldom does.
By a reoent decision of tho courts a
prospector lo.-st a claim because of inability to secur.' the post neceesary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in cases whore claims are
Staked above the timber lino, or the
prospector can not secure tho neees-
sarj posts, be may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an extension tlio posts are
often planted so as to form a wedge*
shape fraction between two eqds of tbe
two claims. Those fractions hive often incurred great expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the load, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. Tbo amended act authorizes
the surveyor tb include such fraction,
provided it dees not cover more than
51.65 acres, the area of a full claim,
aud provided further that two location
posts aro together.
By failure to record assessment work
within the required period, of ono year,
either through overnight or tbe mlo-
iinilerstandinL' of partnership interests,
valuable claims have been lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has 30 days' additional time in which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
tho work is done within the year.
Another change regarding the assessment work is in that particular
whicli called for work tu tlie amount of
$1()0 each yoar. Now, a minor can do
'and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a year by paying tho recording fee tor each assessment dono to the
extent of $100.
Incase anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, tlio contestant
must have bis claim survoyod immediately andlile a plan mado and signed
by an authorized provincial kind Bur*
voyor*with the writ.
To obtain a'crown grant tn 1866 it
was necessary to do assessment work to
the amount of $500 and to havo the
claim surveyed, whicli meant another
$100. In 1897 tne act was amended so
as to provide that up to -May I, I808,lbe
cost of such survey should count as
work done on tlio claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward thu
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$1U(). The last legislature extends tlie
time to May 1, IS'.''.'.
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings in
connection with thc title to mineral
claims, before auy court, each party to
thc proceedings shall give affirmative
evidence of title. Heretofore the burden of proof was on tho contestant.
The fee for recording assessment
work has been reduced from $2.75 to
$2.50. Heretofore the feo for recording
assessments has been 25 cents higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark a boundary or location
of a minora! claim, or any writing by
law required to be thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or a line
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly toward preventing the use of old posts by people '
wno restake a claim and sometimes do- j
stroy evidences of a prior location.

Sermons are notoriously fond of statistics���whether those Immortalised by
Mr. Balfour or not-nml a certain Ur.
Schwartz has just published In Berlin
a little book which absolutely revels In
them. The worthy doctor has studied
the official statistics of length of life,
and has come to the conclusion that. In
order to live long. II Is necessary to be
married. Out of every TO men of 00
years of age 4H are married and 22 nre
���bachelors; at 70 the proportions are 27
to 11, and at 80 nine to three.
Of course, It may lie said Hint nt those
ages there are many more married than
single men, bnt Dr. Bchwarta is ready
for that objection, and replies that between the ages of 30 and 45 ibe mortality among bachelors la 21 per cent.,
while among married men It la only 18
per cenl. Dr. Schwartz lias proved that
It Is absolutely necessary to be married
If a man wishes to become a ceiitenas
rlan. for of fifty proved centemirlons
whom the doctor has examined not one
was a baehelor. It Is true that there
wer. no married men, either, for all of
the old men were widowers. Tbe facts
nre now established. To live long n
man must be married, and then become
a  widower at some period of bis life,
which has not yet in-en ascertained,
Kvldently, If Dr. Schwartz discovers
the exact length married life should
continue lie wlll have solved tbe problem of old age.
But It Is possible that wives would
not be so COtpploisanl as to leave their
husbands widowers exactly ou Ihe right
date, and until some arrangement Is
made on Ibis score tbe science of living
long wlll never be Absolutely exact.

to destiny thc entire business district.
The wind wns blowing 4n miles nu hour
from the southwest when the fire started
at the 1). 4, H. ti. rfeignt de|K>t at the
font of Cuoharls street at 2:10 p. in. and
grew rapidly,   A strip four blocks long,
north to south and two blocks wide from
east to west has been burned over, but at
this hour (S p. m.) the conllngnition is
believed to be under control. The flames
are still leaping high in the air over the
burned district but the wind has died
down and there is no doubt thnt the lire
engines whieh have come from Denver and
Pueblo in response to appeals for aid, will
be able to confine the flames within the
present limits.
The Antlers hotel, nne of the largest
in the west, three lumber yards and two
blocks of business houses have been destroyed. In round numbers the loss is
estimated at $1,000,000; insurance one-
half of  that amount.
The fire started in a pile ot rubbish underneath the platform of the Denver _,
Hio tli-ande freight depot. Within live
minutes it had communicated to freight
cars and it spread to i-.ipidly that it was
impossible to move any of the chi-s. Half
a car of powder consigned to tl. S. Dailies
&. Sons exploded.   Tlie cars ere thrown
for hundreds of feet and the wonder is
that nobody was injured. Then came the
terrible danger to the city.
While ilie big li res were burning, several small unes broke out throughout the
city,   destroying   several   residence*!,   and
threw the people into consternation.   'Tlie
limits of the burned district arc the Denver & liio 1,1.ni,I,- railroad  on  the west,
