\V. A. Galliher, of Nelson, the libera
candidate for this district, paid a visit to
Cranbiook this week, and naturally
dropped into The Herald ofiice for a
chat. Mr. Galliher is a lawyer, and, at
one time while living in Lethbridge, dallied a little with the editorial quill, but
fortunately for him he recovered fiom
the errors of his younger days, and devoted his time to the law. As a result,
he enjoys a line practice nud has rei died
that stage iu thc political field that his
party has called upon him to be the
Standard bearer in this district. If he
linit turned his attention exclusively to
newspaper work, hi* might today he
hustling fur a living and officiating ne the
cussing post for some community,
Mr. Galliher is a pleasant gentleman
to meet and his campaign handshake has
a tremor of sincerity, while his conversation is almost absolutely devoid of politics. That is where be m.ikes a hit and
displays Lis shrewdness hs a polilican.
Lucky is the man who knows what to
say and what not to sny wben he becomes
a candidate for oflice. In that position
be has more critics thnn a minister's
wife, and it behooves bim to exercise
caution at all times.
On Monday night Mr. Galliher met a
large number of his political faith at
I.eask hall. Pr. King officiated as chair-
mail and the preliminary plans nf the
campaign were discussed. Arrangements were made for Mr. Galliher to
i-isil Cranbrook again on which occasion
he will address the public. It will be
Impossible for him lo visit all portions of
lie district, as he would have to cover a
territory larger tban Lord Roberts did

auolher Richmond in the lield. he says
that he would like to have seen the fight

xisied a difference of opinion ns to the
advisability of placing a candidate in

move were largely in the majority, and
the measure curried with little difficulty.
The platform adopted consists of tlle
following eleven planks :
1 Free compulsory education.
2 A legal working day of eight hours.
3 Government inspection of nil industries,

The Canadian Bank ot Commerce Shows Its
Faith In Cranbrook.
A'v.ong olher matters considered by
General Manager l'luinmer of the Cann-,
dian Hank of Commerce, when he visited
Craubrook last week in compnny with ;
Messrs. Smythe and Cameron, of the'
same institution, was the question of
larger and better quarters for the Cran-
brook branch. Tlu busiuess here has
rapidly Increased, and naturally Mr.
I'liiiiiiner was most favorably impressed
wilh Crnnbrook iu consequence of this ,
fact. It has beeu virtually decided that
the bank will erect a new building to
cost from $501x1 to |Sooo, on one ol the
hest lots on Haker street. The building
will he modem in every rer-pect and be a
credit to Craubrook. This decision on j
the part of Mr. Plummer is evidence oft
the fact that he entertains a high opinion
of the future of South blast Kootenay
and Cranbrook. He is in close touch !
witb the conditions at all times, and tbis
is but tbe result of his observations and
Return of Contown 400.
The above clean, colored compnny ol

wbo put on a Rag Time Operetta, the
same title as last year with the exception
lhat every feature in lhe piece is new.
Judging from the favorable impression
the company left behind them the last

large houses.
Helena was au isolated mining town,
tbe nearest lailroad being the Utah
Northern, at Corinne, twenty-five miles
north of Salt Lake, and tbe nearest
stream transportation of any kind being
the steamers which ran up the Missouri
ns far as Fart Ilcuton, 140 miles of road
from Helena.
At that time George Kennedy, wbo is
still hale and hearty, and in business In
this city, wns running freight teams
from Helena to Coiinne, 500 miles distant, making his headquarters at
"The ore from the mines around here
was hauled by mute or ox team from
Hc'eua to Corinne, a distance of about
500 miles, for 825 a ton. From tbe railroad freight to New York was $40 a ton,
and the ore was shipped free as ballast
to Swansea, Wales. The smelters there
charged moderate rates and paid for
everything i 11 the ore, not only for the
gold, silver and lead, but for tbe zinc
and antimony and arsenic, (or which
American smelters allowed nothing. I
used to haul much ore from Melrose,
near Butte, for shipment to Swansea, at
about the same rate.
"Mnch ol this ore came from the
Peereless Jennie mine, on Red Mountain, four miles above Rimini, then
owned by Vaughne. He shipped some
that carried 1,500 ounces of silver nud
•f.''> or fi*> in gold. We hauled some
from the Legal Tender at Clancy, one
carload of which paid $t0,OOO. Some
from the Little Km ma iu Lump gulch,
which whs shipped to Newark, ran
nbout 41x1 ounces in silver.
"We hauled tbe ore to Corinne witb
six-horse mule teams, three wagons in a
string, and would start s trsin of twenty
to thirty wagons at a time under the direction of a wagon master. It usually
look twenty-five days to come up and
twenty dnys to go back. Sometimes iu
the spring, when the streams were up,
they would stick in the mud and be
thirty or thirty five days on tbe road.
" When the Wicker smelter was built,
the smelliug rate was f-75 a ton at the
same time that the Omaha smelter was
charging (8. The freight made the
difference, now, the East Helena smelter
charges $10 to f.15 and charges for tbe
silica ami pays for the iron in tbe ore.
"In the early days the custom rate for
free milling ore was $4 per ton, but no
ui tempt was made to save the sulphurets.
The first concentrators came to this section in 1H70, The rate for free milling
is now about f 1 per ton.

Moyie Leader: For the month of September the St. Eugene Consolidated
Mining Co.'s shipment of concentrates
amounts to 16,051 tons. Tbis amount is
ousiderably less tlmn last month, the
lack of water to run the concentrator be-
iug the cause. Tlie recent completion
of the flume however, now enables the
company to run the concentrator at Its
full capacity-
Nelson Tribune: While this Is not
given on the authority of the manage*
ment, It is said that the St. Kugene
mines at Moyie, Kast Kootenay, will
pay a dividend on the ist of November,
and from that time on a dividend will
be paid every three months. The St.
Kugene mines are one of the big properties in British Columbia, if uot one of
the largest silver-lead mines on the

The highest assay of gold ore tbat has

Fassett of the exposition ore from the
Hill Nye mine in Jackson County, Oregon, says the Spokane Chronicle Tbe
ore assayed $67,116.52 to the ton. While
this is from a picked sample, and does
not iu any manner determine the value
of the ore body, ns such values could uot
be found in any quantities, yet as a feature it is interesting to show tbe amount
of free gold rick can contain.
William Muidock of St. Louis and
Alfred King of Seattle, while prospecting for placer gold in the foot bills of
Mount St. Elms, Alaska, claimed to
have discovered a copper mine, which
had been worked ages ago. Iu tbe immediate vicinity were picked up kettles,
tools, spearheads and other articles of
practical use, manufactured in a crude
manner nut of copper. It ia evident
that tbe copper came from three or four
veins in the immediate vicinity, The
spot where the discovery was made is
6,000 feet above the sea level in the foot
hills of the mountain peak.
James Dunsmuir, head of tbe firm of
R. Dunsmuir & Sons, coal mine owners,
and Premier of the province of British
Columbia, ia the victim of a peculiar
strike. During the provincial campaign
last April, in compliance with tbe strong
anti-Mongolian sentiment prevailing in
Britisb Columbia, Dunsmuir discharged
all the Chinese wbo Had beeu working
in his mines on the Vancouver Island,
and sent to Scotland for 400 Scotch
miners. Half of these arrived last week
aud a considerable porporlion of them
struck and started off toward the United Stntes boundary line. All the expenses of their transportion hither from
Scotland were borne by Dunsmuir
They are veiy independent, and refuse
to submit to the mine regulations.

In Grand Forks the light against
Chinese laundries had to be abandoned,
and in Greenwood tbe same result is anticipated. In Phoenix the best method
is used, by discouraging them from even

has heen highly successful thus far.
On Saturday all the men, union aud

For years the attempt has been to get
an act on tbe statute books by which defaulting co-owners iu mineral claims
could he advertised out. Last session
the effort was successful, and the law
is already being taken advantage of in
several districts. It is a just act, and
will he of benefit to the mine owners iu

Nelson Tribune, Oct. H —William
Muller was shot and badly injured yesterday afternoon by Fred Hoard, oil e
wise known as ''the French cook." The
reason of the shooting has not developed, but it Is said that It arose out of a
card gnme that took place on Saturday,
in which Hoard lost money. Midler
was shot in the abdomen and now lies
at the general hospital in a critical condition. Hoard was arrested by chief ot
police Jarvis within a few minutes of
Ihe trouble and is confined in tbe city
lock-up. The wenpon used was a 38-
calibre Smith & Wesson. Three phots
were fired, only one taking effect.
"Just Before Da wo,"
"Just Before Dawn" was presented at
the hall last Friday night. The company
had action and there were many good

struggling miners lay dying on the stage
veldt, and tbe Nemisis of revenge
laughed in glee over the terrible -daughter. Fortunately there were enough
people ou the stage escaped to carry ou
the last act. It was a good show fmni a
hbiughter-house standpoint. The blood
waa red and tbe killing was prompt.

(iimblUn Slopped In Dawson.
Vancouver, Oct. 9.—The reform Whve
has struck Dawson. The days of gambling and the dance hall in the Yukon's
capital are ever. Tbe officials in the
north of the Canadian territory, acting
upon instruction from tbe Administration at Ottawa, have decided that
gambling and kindred evils mutt be
closed down at once.
A few days ago publicity was given to
the letter of instructions sent by Minister Sifton from Ottawa, in which be suggested tbat at ouce the gambling places
be closed. It was stated at tbe time
that Commissioner Oj-ilvie and Major
Wood would defer acting on tbe suggestion until next June, so as not to cause
hardship among tbe people wbo have
money invested therein Bat this decision was evidently reconsidered, for passengers wbo arrived bere by lhe Dolphin
say that the gambling houses were all
closed the week before last, and dance
halls have also come uuder tbe ban. In
other res|>ccts Dawson has Income, as a
ciiy, a model of  morality.
A Costly Error.
Victoria, Oct. -9.—Passengers arriving
here last evening by tbe Tees, state
llial through mistaken directions, two
patties working on the Government
telegraph line to Dawson have overlaped
the distance between the twoendsol lhe
line being over one hundred miles. It
is feared this will prevent the completion ofthe line ibis year.

TIIKRI-! i.s a comma nd ment against
coveting*, but none ngnin st borrowing, which te practically helping
oneself to what one covets, ami tin* far
more serious evil of the two.
Hut su hmg as Ihere In no roininainl-
lui-nt, or even tl civil luw to tin; etfret
tbat "thou shall neither borrow nor
ii'iiii," 11 should be 1 nt* maxim oi every
household ami aipurt ofthe breetlipg*o[
every boy u.kI girl to respect tin* property of their neighbor, even if thnt
neighbor is "only a brother, or sisler, n
mother, or a father."
There nre bo mnny types of borrowers
and some of thein are so charming Mini
it is rather a (llflknill task io lay plans
for their whole-sale umloltlg.    Then* is
tho kmI, affectionate, lovable mid kind
hearted, who really regards it as 11 good
joke thai she has kept   n   borrowed
article so long that Hie owner in llim
borrows it of her, Mid there te th•■
beauty who borrows nnythlllgsllG looks
well in, regardless of the feelings of the
possibly plain owner; there is tin*
truly generous girl  wbo borrows her
frlend'i music and books, and is so careless about her own slock Hint she never
thinks to return those that hnve- been
loaned ber, and thc girl who has unquestionably a lot of common sense,
and who is actually the mnl nut ny of the
family, who rejoices be-cuiise her
mother, .sister nml herself are all tlm
same size und can wear one -another'*,
As a rule, it is not SO much lhe family,
who hnve grown accustomed to their
own bad habit, who feel the Inconvenience ns the visitor, nr ebanee
friend, who although she may possess
a sufficient fund of misplaced generosity to lend, cannot bring herself to borrow in return, and soon suffers from a
Badly depleted wardrobe. Amd even if
borrowed wearing apparel is returned,
its freshness is goneaiidiis Individuality too, for the owner has gotten in the
ay of associating it with another person.
X very charming womnn, who possessed a con sol ence about borrowing,
and who was compelled to reside for
onu- time wilh an otherwise delightful
fnmllly, who were one and all addicted
to the borrowing habit, has written
tuutft feelingly of her experience there
in, uud of the maiiuer in which one [jret-
ty girl was reformed.
"I really," to quote her exact words,
"never BftW such a houseful of mlsflta
in my life, mother nndl daughters all
decked out lo one another's clothes, a
portion of each wardrobe having been
purchased for some one else. To bi
sure, these charming peopleavere read)
to lend me ev—-, thing they luul, but
unfortunntel) 1 much preferred wearing mj own clothes, which were almost
Invariably scattered all over the house,
"If n daughter of the bouse was In
my room when n culler was announced,
01- when the dinner-hour wus Imminent,
ihnt daughter picked up the first collar
or belt she could lay her hands on and
donned it as readily as if it were her
own. It did not Improve the case that
tlie borrower was quite willing for the
same liberties to be taken with her
own belongings. Ami I could not but
perceive thnt the larger pari of the
family jars occurring in this nmtnbl.
houseliold were traceable to the borrowing habit. Yet they thought Unit
not to lend and borrow freely was
evidence of selfishness nml n restriction
upon the privilege and right of relation*
ship and friendship,
"One dny, however, I had the chance
of get-ting in a good word with Kate,
the elder daughter, which eventually
cured her of the borrowing habit. An
exquisite gown hml come home for hen
it had been spread out upon the bed,
and the mother und family had been
called iu and allowed to look upon Its
beauties, Kate's sweetheart was coming next day. and ibis gown was to delight his eyes when she appeared beforo
bim in it. While she was out walking
the unexpected happened, nnd her lover
arrived a day ahcud of time. Me went
after her, met her. uml the two walked
home together, ami, iis it was ihe dinner hour, strolghl on Into the dining-
room, expecting lo nuike apologies \:i
the mother for lack of preparation. In
that dlnltng-ronm what sight should
overwhelm Kate, but thai of Maud, her
younger sister, sitting nt the table,
arrayed in all tho glory of the new-
gown! Maud's beloved had come and
she, too, luul coveted to appear in new
iiml wonderful ii|ip;in*l. 'Vou see, Kate,1
she said apologetically, 'I didn't know
you were expecting Herbert. I didn't
know iii nil whnt you find this gown for
—you dldn'l tell tne. And 1 didn't
think you would -wire—-1 thought you
would be glnd under thc circumstances
for me to take it. N'obody told me
Herbert was hen*. Jack came, and I
hadn't 11 thought nbout anything else.
Aud everybody—you, loo, Rate—has
worn my clothes until they are pulled
ull ont of shape; and I came In here to
look for something lo wear, and you
were out, and I hud to take the gown
Million! consulting you. I had no
doubt but it would be nil right.'
'"1 believe.' snid Kate to me nfter
dinner, 'your wny of not borrowing nor
lending is best—although, nt times, T
have thought it was n dreadfully selfish way.'
'Then I found time for the Irsson
'My dear,' snid I, 'the spirit which Is
back of thr freedom with which yon
lend and borrow with each other, is so
beautiful that I hardly feel it is for me
to criticise this pnrtiloular form of Its
expression, yet indiscriminate borrowing seems to me communism lo the
point of lawlessness, A higher expression .would be in carefully respecting
the rights and property of each olher.
And in the point of convenience, it
would have many advnn*fnges over your
present custom. Whenever any of you
want to go out, there is great confusion
here in matching your gowns with the
trimmings which belong with them;
mueh time te hrst, and, as you know
yourself, much composure of spirit.
Your mother, for instance, who does
more lending nnd less borrowing than
the rest of you, has become quite discouraged iu her nttempts to go out,
verily, as I believe, from the difficulties
which lie iu the \mi*> of making a satisfactory toilet in the time at her coin-
ma nd."
" '1 hadn't thought of ii in tlml wny.'
Kate replied, softly. 'I believe that I
see, with you thai the less selfish wny Is
not to borrow, ltut f do not know how I
shall cense to lend.'
"That will come of itself. If yon
cca.se to borrow you will soon cense to
lend. People who respect themselves
will not ask il; people who do not respect themselves, you will find courage
to refuse. The question of private, personal rights, of justice, should como
before thnt of generosity, There are
tiim-s when one should lend, times when
one should borrow, times when one
should give; times, when in our own
In teres I und iu the interest of others,
one should do none of theso things.
We should neither give nor lend because others think we should, bul only
na our own will and wisdom direct,"
Another woman, who is an authority
on these little things in life which muke
people agreeable lo one another, suid
recently to thc wrilcr: "I should nlways rather give my things thnn lend
them. 1 hnve a friend who is a dear,
charming woman, but whose visits   I
dread. Slie curries away nrmfiils of
bonks, and When she brings Ihem back
they nre worn and badly used—authors whom I handle with love nnd
Every person who borrows freely
runs the risk of making himself or herself a nuisance fo the friends who love
them; every person who lends freely
runs the risk of hating precious treasures abused by cureless hands nnd
of entertaining 111 thoughts in consequence. Lend liberally, give liberally,
in response to actual need nnd in accordance with your judgment and conscience, but do not abuse the high privilege of giving and lending hy using it
heedlessly. And by no means borrow
heedlessly, remembering that there is
a law In nnture which makes us pay for
everything we got to the uttermost
farthing.—Bemorest's Magazine. I

Bugar Is noi the only substance known
to us possessing sweetness, but it is the
only known niituralty Occurring substance  winch  possesses  (bis eh il III etc pis*
tie. Therefore it Is not uncommonly
thought thut when n substance is sweet
it must contain BUgar. Such u notion, of
course, is quite*erroneous. Glycerin ia
sweet, but contains no sugari saccharin

It Is probable, however, that some analogy exists between the strneturo of these
budies—thut Is to say, in tho relative position of the a I mi is, whieh determines
the common property, though in varying
degree, of being sweet. It is at nny rate
romarkablo that according to the respective foruuihu assigned to these bodies by
chemists, sturting with thc body which
contains tho least number of carbon nt-
oms—namely, glycerin, which contains
three atoms—tho rest of the suhstnucea
possessing sweetening powor contain exact multiples of this number. Thus grape

matter, this question of the relative positions of the fitoms deciding physical

is quite harmless, while tho other is a

The pillion! usually feels best on Sunday— that is, If lu* really makes Sunday
a duy of resi—nud gets grfiilunlly worse
through Ibe week llialXI Siiliintny night,
when his condilioii is the worst. Tho
abuve are the symptoms of asthenopia,
which Creek word simply means n lack
of visual power ami fails lo give any idea
•>f ihe real nature of ihe malady.
The causes as well ns the varieties of
asthenopia are mnny, but the chief nf
these is Insiitlieleut power, generally congenital, of ihe muscles, nnd especially of
lhe niuselo whose  function It  is to turn
the eyeball Inward, or toward the nose.
It should ho explained that lhe eyeball,
whieh is almost a perfect sphere, rolls
uu n soft cushion of fat wilhin the conical eye socket and is moved in various
ways by six muscles. Four of these, the
straight muscles, or recti, turn it respectively up, down, in and out. The
other (wo, tho oblique muscles, pass
through rings of cartilage and nre attached to the eyeball in such a manner
ns to enable ihem to turn ou Ms axis.
The inner straight muscle, or Internal
rectus, is one whose weakness gives rise
to asthenopia. Now, when a near object,
such as n letter in u printed page, is
looked nt attentively both eyes are turned full on it, so that ihe two lines nf
vision, or optic axes, meet nt Ihe letter.
This turning is effected by the Internal
recti muscles referred to.    Tho nearer
the object is the more sharply nre lhe
eyes tinned inward nud the greater Is the
effort required of thc inner muscles to
bVlllg the eyes to the right position and
hold them there agalust the pull of the
other muscles.
It is evident nlso that strain and fa-
tlgllo -of these Inner muscles must increase with the length of time thnt ihe
eyes are til lis Axed on near objects. The
si/e of lhe type also has an indirect effect, because small objects must be lield
close to bo seen distinctly. If the eye
muscles nre strong und healthy and if
there Is nn abnormal resistance to the
free motion nf the eyeball, lhe eyes maybe used for a long time without fatigue,
but when the inner muscles arc weak
they vamiot stnnd the strain, aud asthenopia results.
The remedy is fortunately very simple
nnd easily applied. It Is merely n pair of
prismatic or wedge shaped glasses. Itays
of light passing through n glass prism
are bent or refracted toward the base of
lhe prism, or nway from iis edge, so thnt
if a prism nf small angle Is held beforo
encb eye with its base toward the nose
und a nenr object Is looked at through
the prisms the rays by which the object
Is seen, though widely diverging at first,
become nearly or qnlto parallel ou irnv-
ersliiK ihe prisms, nonce lhe axes of the
eyes limy lie held nearly or quito parallel
instead of being strougly converged, nnd
very little strain Is put upon the wesk internal recti, or cntlverging muscles. Of
course the ancle which the prism should
have must be determined iu each case by
llie oculist.
Shortsighted people who may suffer
from asthenopia caused by holding their
Work loo close to the eyes do not need
prlsmtlllc glasses, but nre relieved by
the   use   of   ordinary   concave    classes,
which enable them to hold the I k furiher nwny and thus diminish the convergence of ihe optic ajtes,
Now, if lhe prisms are reversed or
placed with their odgoa toward the nose
they will clearly act in an opposite way,
necessitating stronger convergence of the
.i|iiic axes and Increased strnlu of tbe
inner muscles.
If it be nsked who would be so foolish
ns to mnkc the experiment, it may he answered ihat thousands are Ignorajuty
nud itiietinseiously doing It every day
through the use of III fining spectacles
and eyeglasses. The Intended function
of ordinary spectacles is to magnify or
diminish lhe apparent si/e of objects, or,
lo   put   It   another   wav,   lo   leu-*;!lieu  or
slim-ten tho focal distance of the eye.
Tbey lire mil Intended to bend the
whole pencil of light to right or left and
thus displace the linage an a prism docs,
Ni.r do thev have ihis effect lo an appreciable extent if Hu* centers of the lenses
an* just as far apart as ihe pupils of lhe
eyes, so lhat eaeli eye looks through tho
center <>r iu lens. Uul suppose the glasses nte convex nml uie set too far apart,
so That the eyes look through their inner
halves instead of tlicir centers?
Now. n hulf lens—or, indeed, any portion of n lens except the center—nets not
only ns a lens, but fllso us a prism and
bends light pn using through ii Inward iis
thickest part—that Is, toward the center
of lhe lens. Convex classes set (oo wide
nptu*l therefore net like prisms set with
their edges Inward and tend lo cause
asthenopia, Concnvo or shortsighted
glasses set too near together have the
same effect.
