An Unknown Man Throws Himself In 1'runt
of an Engine.
Last Friday evening, ns the west
bound passenger train was bowling
along between Klko ami Jiillray, Engl*
neer Robertson noticed a man walk! g
along the truck n short distance ahead
of the engine, A warning signal was
given, ami the man turned his head
around, then continued to walk on.
When a second signal wns given, the
man Stepped tti one side antl watted Ior
the (train,  Just before it reached hlm,
lie threw himself ou tlie truck. It was
loo late to prevent Hie death of tlle
stranger who so deliberately sought It.
Tlie engine and Rcveral cars passed ovei
the body, mangling il beyond recognition. The scattered remains were
picked np and placed In a box car, und
brought to Cranbrook lhat night and
Coroner MolTut notified.     After hearing
the statements of Engineer Robertson
and Hremati IMoouey, it was deemed unnecessary lo hold an Inquest, Nothing
that would lead to identification was
found on the remains. The man had on
Klondike tan shoes, one sock and a rag
wrapped around the other foot, rough
clothes, and seemed to lie about 35 years
of age. The remains were buried in the
new cemetery, the first to fill a grave in
that addition to the town.

elegant production. The company play

A Dizzy Bluff.
One day last week Dr. King wns hastily summoned to the railway yards (0
save the life of Bruce Howard, a railway
employe, who was reported to be dying
from the effects of a liberal dose of carbolic acid. The doctor found the victim
in the agonies of death—nit. There were
uo traces of bums from the acid," but the
misguided victim of a romantic temper-
ment was given a strong emetic and in a
short time had thrown up everything,
even his job. When lhe bluff was at its
height, word was sent to a fairy whose
chilly indifference bad brought about
the situation, to come at ouce if she
would see her admirer before death claimed him as his own. Promptly came back
the reply, "Tell him to die nnd go to—"
The emetic and the reply were too much,
The bluff bad been called, add the player threw up his baud.    It was a bobtail.

They Destroy $360,000 Worth of Property at Wardner, Idaho.
Federal Troops Ordered to thc Rescue and Martial Law Declared in Wardner,
Spokane, April 29.—The trouble between lhe union miners and the operators of the Hunker Hill and .Sullivan
mines at Warduer, Idaho, which broke
out last Monday because of the refusal
of Die mine operators lo pay the union
scale for unskilled labor employed underground, resulted today in the most
disgraceful nnd deadly rioling this section of the countrv has seen since the
labor war of 1892.
One union uiitier is dead and another
mortally wounded as tbe result of a volley fired by the strikers. Mills of the
Hunker Hill and Sullivan have been
blown up by the Btrikers with giant
powder. The property loss will amount
to a quarter of a million dollars The
work of destruction was done by Ward*
tier strikers and union sympathizers
from the Canyon Creek mines, which
are about twenty miles from Wardner.
A mob of nearly 1000 men, armed and
masked, Reizetl a trrin of nine box cars
ntul one passenger car nt Burke and immediately started for Wardner, where
they arrived at noon, being met at
Warduer junction, a mile and a hulf out
of town, hy a great crowd of union
strikers. The miners from Canyon Creek
brought with them 3000 pounds of giant
powder. After a parley of two hours,
140 masked men, armed with Winchesters, liurke In the lead aud Warduer following, started with yells for the hunker
Hill ami Sullivan mill aud other buddings, a third of a mile from thc depot.
They sent pickets ahead, and one of these
pickets fired a shot as a signal that the
mill was abandoned. This was misunderstood by the main body of the mob,
who imagined that Lhe non-union miners
in the hills had opened fire on Ihem.and
tbey began firing ou their own pickets.
About 1000 shots were thus exchanged
between the rioters and their picket':,
and Jack Smith, plus if the pickets, formerly ot British Columbia, aud a noted
figure in (billing contests, wns shot dead.
The fatal error was discovered afler a
few seconds' firing, and Smith's body
was brought down from the hillside. By
this time the strikers had taken possession of lhe Bunker Iliil andSullivau mill
which they found deserted, the manager
having directed his employes not to risk
their lives by battling wilh the mob.
Powder was called for, and sixty 50-
pound boxes were carried from the depot
to the mill. The heaviest charge was
placed among the machinery. Another
large charge was placed under the brick
oflice building.' Other charges were
placed around the mill. Theu the boarding house, a frame structure, was fired.
Puses leading to the charges were
lighted, and the strikers, carrying the
dead body of the picket, retired to a sale
At 2:26 o'clock the first blast went off.
It shook the ground for miles, and build-
in gs in Wardner, two miles away, trembled. At intervals of about thirty seconds, four other charges went off, the
fifth, being the largest, completely demolishing the tu Us.
The loss to Die Bunker Hill and Snlli-
1111 company is estimated at from $250,.
000 to $300,000.
In a few minutes the strikers went
back to the train, the whistle was blown
for the stragglers, and the mob soon
climbed aboard, and at 3 o'clock—just
three hours after its arrival—the train
pulled out for Canyon Creek.
During the fusilade from tbe guns of
the mob, "Jim" Chayne, a Hunker Hill
aud Sullivan mail, was severely shot
through the hips. It is reported thai he
was carried off by the strikers, and his
wound is probably fatal. J. J. Rogers, a
stenographer in the employ of the company, was shot through the Up, but his
wound is trivial.
This morning the 230 non-union miners at the Bunker Hill ami Sullivan had
warning of the coming of the mob, and
lefl the mines and touk to the hills.
They have not been seen since. The
union men working in the Last Chance
mine left there this morning, presumably to take part in the riot.

has evidently cropped up to place the
building of the lake section again before

lion, and it is now said to he a case of
touch and go whether the work shall
not be commenced at once.

SCENT of  roses   made   Aylmer
think of something tiat was over
long ago, and Unit be bad almost forgotten.   The roses were everywhere iu
the drawing-room he had just entered.
They stood in jnrs ou the mantelpiece,
Plat bowls held ihem on tables, and
singly In slender vases they were to
be seen here and there amongst the
china nud the odds and ends of silver
and enamel, nnd delft and marble thut
filled the dainty room.
Audrey had loved roses.   There was
beech trees, where Aylmer hud spent
many an hour, that seemed of a sudden
passing happy now—one day, which he
and she hud called the Day of Hose
Ho had only lo shut his eyes—Indeed,
had not to shut them—10 see again the
flower-strewn room. It was Audrey's
birthday, nnd he hud brought her rosea,
They were in the hamper first, in which
they had been packed. Ah, Audrey's
little ery of delight us she raised the
lid und saw them lying soft amongst
their damp leaves. Then they were on
trays, two big trays thnt yet would not
hold them, and they overflowed on to
tbe table, where, with their foliage,
they lay, a Utile of crimson and yellow nnd green, over which, with caressing touch, leaned Audrey, the sweetest
flower of all. He could see her gather
up a handful and bury her face amid
the petals that were scarcely more delicate than herself. Then there was the
seeking of things in which to put thein.
Every suitable vase and jar and pot
the cottage contained was filled and
there were still roses. He had been
reminded vaguely of the woman of the
pons of the prophets (without calling
her all tbat!) and the miraculous pot
of oil. For, as with her, "It came to
pass when the vessels were full that
she said. . . . Bring me yet a vea-
sel." And there wns no vessel found.
Four roses remained over. One of them
he must wear. He chose the smallest,
an opening bud. The other three, Audrey, kissing them first, put into the
girdle at her waist.
That was the Day of Roses, and Aylmer, back from his two years' travels,
had forgotten it. till a chance scent recalled it nnd the idyll that had been
an incident among Incidents in a somewhat thoughtless life.
But he was dreaming, und here was
Diana. She eame in with on apology
and a rustle of silk. She was grieved Co
have kept him waiting. She put up her
face to be kissed. The first time of bis
dining with her, and not to he there to
receive him! But It was Inexcusable—
Inexcusable. She had had an afternoon
of delays—just Hunt; delays everywhere. First the tiresome lawyer people, and then the trustees, and at the
last moment n young woman from Antoinette's about her trousseau. Whiet
a business marriage was! And the fact
of having been through it before did
not ease matters tit all!
Complicated them, Aylmer suggested,
Complicated them, she agreed.
••rni giving you u lot of trouble, I'm
afraid," she snid, smiling.
There was to be no sentiment in this
marriage. Dinnn had "gold and green
foresta;'1 Aylmer had spent his gold,
and the potential cutttngof certain timber ut Ay liner's Keep had brought about
the engagement] Lady Aylmer had per*
haps a hand in the matter, when she
asked the comely widow of Foaten*
brlnk Granton, of Broad street to the
Keep to meet her son,
"AU thnt wil! have (o go," she said
one dny to Mrs, Granton, and waved her
band towards a wood on the hill.
Mrs. Granton raised lier eyebrows,
A day or two later, driving through
the wood in question, Mrs. Granton observed a couple of men with uote-ftjooks
and ipenclls, who saluted the Aylmer
carriage as it passed; and she observed
Aylmer's face, too, us he returned their
BOlutQ with a wave of his whip.
Lady Aylmer caught (perhaps Bought)
lier eye, nnd sighed.
Thut evening Mrs. Granton was the
first to come down from dressing, and
she strolled out on the'terrace. The sun,
setting behind her, shone upon the
doomed woods, Gold steeped them.
The shorn hill would benn eye-sore.
She henrd a step on the gravel, and
saw Aylmer approaching from the
"The prettiest view In England," she
mi ill.
He enme and stood beside her, and
the eyes of each were on the wood*.
"I um told you are going to spoil it,"
xhe suid then.
"For a time."
"A lifetime."
lie nodded. Thc lady's gaze ascended
the hill to the top, where the trees stood
up ngtiinst tbe sky,
"It seems a pity," she said.
The gong sounded presently, and they
went in. Vou could see the shining hill
from the windows of the dining-room.
Midway through dinner, as the evening
closed hi, a servant went to draw the
curtains. Mrs. Granton faced the window.
"Ob," Rhe snid, to Lndy Aylmer,
"might he wait a little? It Is so beautiful from where I sit."
Lndy Aylmer turned and looked, and
Aylmer looked too. In truth, the scene
wns too fair to shutout.
"Leave the curtains as they are,
"Very good, my lady."
80 Mrs. Granton saw the woods to
the disappearing point of dusk.
Later, when the moon rose, Aylmer
and she found themselves upon the terrace once more. The night was warm,
Mrs. Grant on's eyes were on the woods,

An hour or two later, when she took
her candle from his bond, she said:
•'Look for the way out."
She smiled, and he followed her wiih
his eyes us she mounted the stairs, her
skirls trailing and the enntlle held high.
She did not look back at the turn in the
staircase. Aylmer, in the smokiug-
room was ruminant. It wns impossible
lo niistuke her.
Nor did be misunderstand, She suid

"Perhaps he will," said Diana.

Aylmer took u rapid survey of his lift-
up to the point it h-.id t hen. reached, und
decided that be bad pursued tlie ouly
course open to him. Neither did he in
calmness repent Ihe step he had taken.
Diana Granton hud nol her money alone
to recommend her. She was of the
world, nnd admirably fitted for the position he offered her. That sbe W
comely, hns been suid; nnd she took 11
sensible view of the situation-. lie wus
not in love witli her, and she wns wise
onough to conceal from him the secret
that her own heart hud'been revealing
to her gradually for some lime past.
At dinner that evening she looked ut
him and knew that .she loved him. He
looked nt Diana and thought of forgotten Audrey. It was the fiiult of the
roses in the drawing-room.
The scent of them haunted bim—followed him home. Poor little Audrey!
what would she think? Hut near ns he
had come to loving her, he hud never
made love to her, and hnd nothing to
reproach himself with; for which now
he was fervently thankful. Yet he wns
not quite happy ua his hansom took
him to Charges street. A memory of
something that was wistful at times
in Audrey's eyes stirred him. The Ihing
was absurd, inconceivable, Her mother,
gentle as she was, was a woman ofthe
world, and bud known he had "meant"
nothing. Audrey was a child tocaress
and to pet. It was he who had suffered
at the parting. Her tears were the
frank tears of childhood, JUid rolled
down her cheeks unconcealed.
His misgivings told him he hnd done
well to go. He thought of the restlessness that had possessed hlin during the
early days of his travel. Ho had written
a letter that was never posted, and had
refrained himself until time and distance allowed him to write calmly.
Presently the need to write at all ceased,
and he knew himself cured.
But tonight Audrey haunted him.
He could be thankful thtit he hud not
made a fool of himself; the girl was
not of his world, and he knew the folly
of an ill-assorted marriage. * * *
llut she bad been very dear to bim. *
* * How fair she was I Her face insinuated itself persistently between
him and sleep. She must bo grown up
now—yes, Audrey must be ID. The
curves of her slender figure would be
rounded, nnd many subtle changes
murk thc Mine thut hnd seen the crossing of thc borderline of womanhood,
But she would be the same Audrey tlmt
he had known, und Ibeen so near loving.
It was late before he slept. Then
Audrey cume to him in dreams that had
no definite shape. He tried vainly,
afterwards, lo remember in what guise
und to what accompanying circumstances, sho appeared to him. He only
knew that she hud been with him, sleeping as waking, through the night.
The air and the light of day, bow-
ever, cleared his brain. He spent a
morning with Diana, and by the time
■he won sitting opposite to him at
lunch, he could view the situation calmly, and see that his happiness lay In
the direction he was taking, Nor wns
he consciously selfish. He parted with
Diana and walked homewards. It wns
a time of roses. The roses in a How
shop caught his attention. They filled
the window. • • • He found hlm-
sel f in the shop, He bad been attracted
by red roses, yet in the end it was

He took out a card and paused. What
