Capitalists Are Rapidly Becoming
Convinced and There is Evi
dence of Much Activity.
R. O. Jennings, one of tbe best posted
men ou the mineral resources of South
Fast Kootenay, and one of the first to do
any quartz mining iu this district, has
gone to Spokane on several important
mining deals. Mr. Jennings has devoted
six years to this district, and now he
knows that the confidence he displayed
during his early residence here was 1101
misplaced. Speaking of the prospects
for this year and the' future, Mr. Jeu-
uiugs said to a representative of The
Herald thut the time was rapidly coining wheu South East Kootenay would be
classed as oue of the very best districts
in the mining world. "The mineral te
here,'' said Mr. Jennings, "ami what is
more it is not of such low grade as is
generally believed. There is not only
vast ore bodies but the values run hiuli
euough to readily attract capitul wheu
the true conditions are known and understood. Few people fully realize tbe
extent of this district and appreciate the
fact that we have only commenced to
prospect the country, notwithstanding
the many magnificent showings we already have. South Bast Kootenay is a
vast empire it) itself, and it would take
years of hard work by an army of prospectors to properly prospect those portions that give promise of rich returns.
"The building of the JCrowa Nest line,
and the assured fact that a road will be
built from the boundary line north up
lhe Kootenay valley, with branches to
mines from both roads, means u great
change in (be district iu lhe next few
years. South Fast Kootenay will be a
gteat field iu which to make money, for
the values are here, aud what is more
the people are leamiug that this is true.
Already Spokane capitalists (are becoming interested it) mining properties here,
and they are of a cluss that will push
forward their woik. The next thirty
days will see many properties change
bauds, aud several big deals are on at
this time."

Cleaning Up (or Spring.
The process of cleaning up the town

iu a most satisfactory manner. The business men are cleaning the streets in

goes on. Crunbro'k, iu another week,
will be one of the cleanest cities in the
province, and the people should keep it
so. Cleanliness ineiuis health, and all

The recent request made by tlie president of the Uulverslty of Chicago for
an additional $5,000,000 to be added to
its endowment funds shows how costly
a thing a great uulverslty Is. This Institution Is one of bhe youngest of the
great schools of the country; It has already received In endowments about
$12,000,000, but yet there Is an annual
deficiency of something like $200,000,
which is not provided for and has lo bo
raised from outside sources. To provide for this about $6,000,000 more
should bfl added to the revenue-producing funds of tho Institution. The
University of Chicago Is not In this re-

annually to run Harvard Pnlverslly
and Its endowment Is about $0.ih>i',ihii*.

Thero Is a disposition to regard Texas
ns one of the very backward States iu
tho Union. This Impression may, iu
some respects, bo not altogether incorrect. But in many other respects Texas
has made progress. Especially In regard to popular morality uud In the
maintenance of law nnd order the Btnto
of the lone star is oreutlng a record
Hint some Northern and Eastern States
might Imitate with credit to themselves. Some years ago the administration of criminal Justice In Texas was
principally lu the hands of the lynch
Inw courts. Great outrages were perpetrated In the name of humanity demanding redress for brutal crimes. Hut
society did not get better. The rule of
violence did nut bring pence nud obedience lo law. The men of advanced
thought nnd the friends of social order
lu Texas found that In many Instances
—perhaps In most eases In public violence—the peace officer of the county or
city or lown, ns the ease might be,
made no effort at effectual resistance
when a mob attempted to tuke u prisoner out of his bunds for the execution of summary popular justice, lt
was then thought that if officers
charged with the custody of prisoners
were held to a closer accountability for
(lie [irl.suueit*. Iii llielr cine the rule of
violence might Ik> brought to an end or
nt least restrained, The Texas Legislature, therefore, passed a law which
perpetually disqualified for office—In
effect disfranchised—-any sheriff, deputy, constable, police officer or Jailer who
should permit a prisoner to lie taken out
of his hands by a mob fur lynching
purposes, It Is a matter of official record that sluee the enactment of this
law not a single lynching case has occurred lu the State.
The wisdom nnd unwisdom of self-
repression is carefully weighed by
Mary E. Baldwin, In n paper on "Safety
Valves In Homo Life," In which she
contends that a high pressure life calls
for some protective measures, and the
woman who engages mind and heart lu

Btlnctlvely seeks her safely valves.
These are peculiar to her Individuality,
and BUlt, as she Imagines, lier needs;
but sometimes tbey nre not chosen
wisely, nud are overused. The intense
nature, with the greatest need for letting off steam. Is the one who will
make the mistake In this direction. The
home of such n woman Is often a place
whero tragedy is frequently enacted.
Her nervous system, wrought up lo n
point bordering upon frenzy, her mental and physical energies following lis
lend, there comes a moment when ttio
strain must be relieved or mlml and
body will both give way. lt Is not an
easy thing to acquire the habit uf withholding ilie worst from the dearest
friend, nnd showing him ouly the best;
but It Is possible when the heart Is
right and the purpose hus even a germ
of strength. One brave, gentle woman
confided to a friend her experience in
trying to relieve the tension of mind
and spirit without giving discomfort to
those whom she loved. Her piano he-
came her abiding friend whenever she
felt the noed of letting herself down
from a loo highly strung condition. She
played off her feelings uud gradually
became calm. The womnn with menial
resources, mid with wise discrimination, will learn to choose her safety
valves with reference to the comfort
and peace of the home, and will tIiiih
llnd a guln In self-respect and lu
strength of will.

"H'ml" remarked the skipper. "So

an eloquent one, aud the hoy shuddered
as he snw it.

"Behind one of the cotton hales, sir,"
the mnte replied, "He had an old mutton bone, with the meal all gnawed off.

"Please, don't put mo ashore," he
cried. "Anything but that. I must go

"Shut up!" snarled the mate, emphasizing his remark by a tug at tho
stowaway's ear. "Who gavo you
leave to talk, I'd like to know? Shut
up, and hark to what the captain snys."
"What's your name, and where d'ye
come from?" demanded the captain,
notebook In hand.
Tremblingly the boy replied that he
wns Hick Hurley, late of the Tenterden
grammar school; that his father, a
widower, had left him behind In England, while he went lo South Africa
ns assistant surveyor on the new Mnt-
abeleland Hallway line; that nothing
had been heard from thnt kindly father
for a year or more, nnd lastly, that,
compelled to leave-school on account of
Unpaid bills, ho had resolved to go to
South Africa and tlml his missing parent.
"And so you thought to steal n passage on the Only Son of Portsmouth?"
said the skipper,
"I was refused a herth by every other ship," pleaded the boy, "They said
I looked too weak to work."
"Weak or not, you've got to work
aboard the Only Son," said the first
mnte; "hasn't he, sir?"
The skipper nodded.
"That's correct, Mr. Billings," he answered. "If lie doesn't want to pay

"Aye, nye, sir."
Ami again Hillings grinned eloquently as he led the boy forward.
A quiet, elderly gent Ionian who had
been watching theso proceedings now
Stepped forward.
"Don't hurt him, Mr. Billings,** he
said.   "He's only a child, you know."
"Captain's orders, sir," answered the
mate, giving Dick Hurley's ear an extra tweak.
The skipper laughed.
"Don't you waste any sympathy on
that youngster," he exclaimed. "We
can't afford to have any useless, white**
hamled stowaways aboard a vessel that
carries £250,000 to the Chartered Company. How do you know, my dear Mr.
Lancelot, that yonder boy Is not the
spy of some high-sen robbers, put on
board to llnd out about tlie money?''
The man addressed as Lancelot looked grave.
"True," he said, "they did think ln

tu rob the ship. • • * But still, this
mere boy—"
"I've Been 'mere toys' ere now, Mr.
Lancelot, thnt were old men in crime.
Tuke my advice and leave tbe stowaway to my first officer."
At thia moment n shrill cry of pain,
followed by another, nud nuother, came
from  tiie lower deck.
"What's that?" cried Mr. Lancelot.
Tho captain or the Ouly Son of Portsmouth put his   notebook,   containing
Dick Barley's name and circumstances,
carefully Into his pocket.
"Thnt, my dear sir," he answered,
smilingly, "Is the stowaway getting his

Mr. Laucelot shrugged his shoulders.
After nil, he hud been sent out In
charge of £260,000 In gold, which was
consigned by the Hank of England to
Cecil Rhodes nnd the Chartered Company of South Africa. His duty lay in
the after cabin, where the treasure was
stored, and not hi preventing venturesome littlo stowaways from being
Bruised and stiff, Dlek Ilarley lay
curled iii* botwoen a seaman's chest
nnd tlio forecastle bulkhead. One of
the deck hands had taken pity ou him
und thrown a pleco of tarpaulin over
Iiln aching shoulders. Thus he Iny
completely hidden so that the men on
tho larboard watch, who hnd Just
turned In ufter four hours* wrestling
witli wind and water, knew nothing of
his presence.
"What been me of the stowaway,"
asked one of these worthies.
"Jumped overboard, I expect," answered another. "Billings gavo hlm
'whutfur,' I eau tell you. I must say
I don't understand why ho wauted to
wallop the poor little wretch."
A chuckle ran around the forecastle,
"Why, you donkey," cried tho man
who hnd flrst spoken, "Billings   Just
wanted to show how zealous he is iu
the company's service. The captain
thinks there's nobody like Billings."
Just then the mnte appeared, aud, remarking thnt the captain was quite
right, proceeded to give his orders for
a scheme which made the stowaway
under his canvas prick up his ear—one
of them wns still very painful from the
mate's cruelty—nnd listen intently, for
the scheme, in which nil of that watch
were accomplices, having shipped with
thnt express design, was nothing less
thnn the capture of the £250,000 and
the sending adrift of the captain and
Mr. Lancelot, tf it was not necessary
to murder them to secure the treasure.
To stir from his hiding place nt this
moment would mean death nt thc
hands of those desperate men. And ns
yet none of them showed nny Intention
of obeying Billings' advice and "turu-
ing In."
They examined their revolvers—for
every one of them seemed to be armed
—and talked over the coming attack
upon the Chartered Company's treasure. Dick had almost made up tils
mind to risk a crawl along thc floor toward the companion ladder, and a rush
thence Upon deck when oue of the desperadoes yawned. A yawn ts more
contagious than yellow fever. Within
five minutes every man In the forecastle was showing evidences of weariness. First one and then another
crawled to their bunks, nnd were presently heard to slumber noisily. The example spread until the last of the band
knocked thc ashes out of hts pipe nud
retired to rest. Soon all of them were
in the land of Nod.
Cautiously Dick Ilarley peeped out
from under his tarpaulin. Then he ventured forth and set one foot ou the
companion ladder.
"Who's there?" growled a sailor
Dick's answer wns to slip ns quickly
nml ns noiselessly ns his bruises would
allow up the ladder, At the head he listened Intently.
"Who was It, Bill?" asked a second
"It was thnt blamed cat, Pin think-
In'," replied the first speaker, and to
Dick's relief there was no pursuit.
Quickly lie ran along lhe deck and
mounted the bridge to where the skipper stood.
Tlmt night nn the first mate of the
Only Son enme up from his enbln with
n revolver ln his hip pocket and a grin
on his face, he was met nt the head of
the stairs by the captain nnd Mr.
Lancelot. To his surprise both of these
gentlemen were armed, while behind
them he observed the despised stowaway, Dlek Hurley, with a naked cul hiss
In his hand.
"Mr. Billings," said the captain, "you
will please throw up your bauds. Your
little plot has been discovered. Ah,
thank you—" (as he drow the pistol
out of Billings' pocket),"you may return
now to your cabin aud consider yourself n prisoner."
"Wh—whnt Is the meaning of this,
sir?" sputtered the mate.
"The meaning, Mr. Billings," put In
Lancelot, "is that this boy here heard
your whole delightful scheme to rob
the Chartered Company of f250,lX)0. He
very promptly informed tho captain,
Your accomplices In tho forecastle were
captured ln their bunks, and most of
them hnve confessed everything."
Billings locked nt the speaker, then at
Dick Hurley.
"Tbo stowaway!" he cried. "The
miserable little rut of a stowaway."
"Yes, Mr. Billings—the stowaway haa
Paved the Chartered Company of South
Africa £2fi0,000 and a staunch, sen-
worthy ship. You will tlml that the
company knows how to to grateful."
And grateful, indeed, the company
proved Itself to be. A month later
(while Hillings and his gang were
awaiting trial for attempted piracy lu
tho Cape Town Jull) Dick Ilarley was
shaking his father's wasted hand In the
new hospital at Salisbury. The surveyor's recovery from a lingering fever
wus greatly accelerated, you may he
sure, by the news thut the Chartered
Company had rewarded by a position of

It haa been frequently stated that

those who subsist on it largely are distinguished for their brightness and Intellectuality, says Hie New York

Into the comiHWitlon of tlie healthy
brain, and while lt Is nlso true that
fish contains more or less phosphorus
thnt may and probably does pass Into

either by theory or by experience that
a dlot of fish Is on the whole better
adapted to supply the wnste of the

alimentary substaneera, aud especially
of meats.
Flsh Is easy of digestion and creates
little vascular excitement nnd consequently forms a light and wholesome

more agreeable aud healthy, less exposed to putrescence and less viscid.

nervous fright horses sometimes become panic-stricken and absolutely uncontrollable. They suffer also occasionally from whut, for want of better

Incapable of motion. This condition Is
also Invariably the result of brutal
treatment, and the only reasonable explanation of It is that tint tlrst emotion

fear; tiliat when he finds that he can

horses would control their tempers and

The eye Is the best Index to the animal's feelings. The ears are very expressive, but they do not reveal so pln'n-

the eye, with Its varying expressions,

Judging from the statements made

Thi* la Uncle 8uni-n Htandlnv Order
lathe Navy of the United Htatca.
"Shoot on the downward roll." Tbut
Is the standing order In the navy or ths
rnlted States. The American practice,
both In the army uud nuvy, has always
been to shoot low, uud always to aave
iiiinniinlllon until It was possible to use
It effectively. Iu the navy tlio tradition
to shoot low hus crystallized Into a
standing rule, unwritten Indeed, but
none tbe less religiously observed, and
Its wisdom has been proved on more
than ouo occasion of grent Importance.
Tlm precise form of this unwritten
naval rub Is to "wait for tbe downward roll." This Is the converse of the
maxim obtaining In the British navy
tbat It Is best to take advantage of tbe
"upward roll," which has been observed almost from the beginning of
naval fighting by the gunners on English ships, und to which much of the
power of England's "wooden walls" to
defend the Island was attributed In the
days when England, nnd not the United
States, was at wnr with Spain.
Necessarily the deck of n vessel at
Ben offers a much less satisfactory platform from which to shoot thnn the sol-
Id foundation provided In a land fort,
since, even when tbe ocean Is calmest,
tho vessel must constantly roll from
side to side. Theoretically, the best
time to fire would be nt the moment
between rolls, wheu the deck of the
ship Is perfectly level, nud lu n general
middle part, so that his fingers are not
burned by being too near the flame,
and so thnt tbo match wilt not break
by Mug he-Id too neiir the other end.
This fact Involves nuother—thuit he
Is aware which end has the sulphur
it ml does uot attempt to scratch thu un-
sulphured end. lie hus further mo re
lea rued that a rough surface Is better
to scratch the match on than a smooth
one, and his care In looking for a rough
place Is very diverting.
But with all Dhls Intelligence the
monkey has no notion of kindling another lire with the one that bo bus
caused by the friction of the match.
He simply lots the match burn out, and
If be lights another does lt for the
pleasure of seeing It burn.
This monkey's keepers and the men
of science wbo are experimenting with
his intelligence hope to communicate
to hlm eventually an Idea of fire mnking and using, but from tbe moment
they succeed lu doing so—If they ever
do succeed—It will be necessary to
keep matches out of his reach.

j    "Talking about a busiuess deal in this

money went Into iny pocket, too.   Yuii

which I was Interested as the owner of
i one house and city lot. The agent did
not know me from a Canarsle clammer.
Well, be came in here with a friend—
one of the syndicate—for luncheon on
an afternoon In last July. They took
seats nt this table. I sut at the next
■i began to 'take notice.' as grandmas Bay, when 1 heard the strangers
at the next table discuss quite loudly
a deal In relation to the property adjoining mine. The agent had ordered
a fine layout for luncheon and was evidently well pleased with his deal. He
said to his frleud:
"'Well, 1 pulled off the trick for that
property nt 210 Cheap street to-day.
The owner thought I was doing him a

"I didn't need to do nny eavesdropping, you see. That little speech of tlie
