them by the diamond drill process, thus
securing the necessary information regarding leads, body aud quality of ore,
etc. With this done with u property,
the company will then he able to put on
the market only properties that are assured to be gilt edge propositions. They

wilt put another one hi the field as uoou
as necessary. This company has already secured control of teu good prospects, besides the well-known Caudo
group at Moyie, which is located near
tbe St. Eugene.
Diamond drill work is what is needed
at thia time in South East Kootenny to
more rapidly show up the mineral resources of tbe district, and the work of
this company, in consequence, promises
to be of material benefit to the district
as a whole and those towns near which

when seen by a Herald matt, and spoke
confidently of the future of their property, lie says that the work of development is now being carried ou ia au intelligent manner, and that a new body of
ore has been opened up tliat is most
satisfactory. The extent of concentrating ore ii almost unlimited, and arrange
meuls will be made next season for the
building cf a ceucentrator. The colonel
expressed himself as well plt-rise-l witli
the policy of Superintendent Inirdsitll,
and is satisfied that his woik is going to

ed that it has struck the ore body lately.
The Headlight company has a group
of claims which shows au it on capping

Out, Alex, of laie. bus been getting
letters of wonderous bulk and constantly increasing number, lhe perfumed envelopes addressed in a dainty, feminine
hand. His roouwnate asserts lhat he
ofteti'finds him in deep reverie, whilst
big, round tears fall plinkely-plunk Into
the bowl of his forgotten pipe, yet a
happy smile of infinite sweetness

while it slill exists, the prize upon which

dainty, little cottage wherein dwells lhe
jewel of his fancy, and, though the
width of nations lies between.theiu, Llie
warm blood of sunny France is not to be

How a Drunken Husband Was Made a
Sober Man by a Determined Wife*
Sho writes:—"I had for a long time been
thinking of trylug the Samaria Prescription treatment on my husband for hll
drinking habits hut I was afraid he would
discover that I was giving him medicine,
and the thought unnerved me. I hesitated
for nearly a week, hut oue day when ha
camo home very much intoxicated and
his week's salary nearly all spent, I threw
off all fear aud determined to make an
effort to wive our home from the ruin I
saw coming, at all hazards. I sent for
vour Samaria Prescription and put it In
his coffee as directed next morning and
watched and prayed for tho result. Al
noun I gavo him moro and nlso at supper.
lie never suspected a thing, and I then
boldly kept right on giving it regularly, ai
I had discovered something tbat set every
nerve iu my body tinullug with hope and
happiness, und I could seo a bright future
spre id out before me—a peaceful, happy
home, a share In tbo good things of life, an
attentive, loving husband, comforts, and
everything else dear to a woman's heart,
for my husband had told mo tbut whiskey
was vile stuff and ho was taking a dislike
to lt. It was only too true, for before I
bad given him the full course ho had stop*
ped drinking altogether, but I kept giving
the raedlcino till lt was gone, and then sent
for another lot to have on hnnd If bo should
-elapse, as ho had done frum his promises
before. He never has, and I am writ ing
you this letter to tell you how* thankful I
am. I honestly beliovo lt will cure tho
worst cases."

"Obslllintc mul brave as a lluleliuinn"
was a lauiiliai term in 1'rnaee 75 years
ago, wl  a I drill uf doggedly deicr-
mined  I  fearless boy Hollanders gave
um* mure proof of what Dutch courage
rwilly means.
lt was in September, 1880, Unit Belgium, whleh fur HI years bad been under
tbe rule of n Dutch king, fuse lu revolt
nml demanded the aid of tlie olher Knin-
I'l'iin powers iu establishing her Independence and a setting up of a king of
her owu.
As may well be Imagined, the Dutch
took these proceedings very much to
heart, lint a very excellent army was organised and tbe French government sent
Marshal (ierard and General St. Ayr,
witb 711,000 picked soldiers of the grand
army, to sec that the Dutch were turned
out of Belgium, bag and baggage.
Marshal Gerard at once culled upon the
garrison In tho citadel of Antwerp to
surrender. This was on Nov. 20, nnd imagine the surprise of both French nud
Belgians when General Chnsne, tbe
Dutch commander of this fortress, invited his enemies to come nud take It.
Marshal Gerard warned . General
('basse that he would besiege and horn-
hard the citadel. "Besiege nway," was
tbe gallant Dutchman's reply, though he
had only 4,MX) meu under him, while outside thc walls hla enemies numbered
On the same 20th of November tbe
French opened fire on thc Dutch, hut if
tho French made breaches In the wall by
day, tho Dutch labored and repaired
them by night, and from their lofty- outlook they could see and knock over every
gabion or approach tbe French made.
With superior arms nud men the French
fairly raged to see themselves baffled aud
checked at every turn and to hear all
Europe laughing at their situation.
Their humiliation was complete, bow-
ever, when dually, ou blowing up a lunette, tbey took 58 heroic Dutchmen prisoners and found them, instead of tough
veterans, the merest boys—so young were
40 of tbem that they had never bad razors at their chins, and their beardless
faces, wan from toil ond privation, gave
them quite the appearance of a bond of
sick children.
At last, afler 19 days' desperate fight-
lug, ufter 20,000 shot and shell hnd been
thrown Into the citadel, Genernl Chasse
capitulated, and tbe French, very quietly
and rather shamefacedly, entered the
stronghold. Within It wns literally torn
to pieces, and drawn up before tbeir con-
ipterors was this wonderful little company of Dutchmen. Throe-fourths of the
entire force had not reached the age of
22 years, a few had been two years in
the service, and a sorry figure in their
own eyes aud the estimation of everybody else did the magnificent French
nrmy cut. Fond as they are of recounting tbeir warlike deeds, French historians have little or nothing to say regarding their conquest of Antwerp. Tbey
realise that* the glory rests all with the
Warrior buys who were completed nud
who never would have surrendered unless
their general had found he could uo longer hear the sight of the suffering!- of
these young heroes.

What a spirit of dutifulness along with
ferocity Is hero exhibited on tho part of

thought that the best way ot respecting
the memory of bis departed consort was
to feed her children well! And in doing

Iii The Century there Is an article
un "Life und Society in Old Cuba,"
mude up uf extracts from the diary
of Joiiuthuii 8. Jenkins, un American
miniature painter, who lived in Havana during the middle of the century.   Air. Jenkins says;
A mile nml n hulf uut from Havana
is   u   furious   und   painful   sight—the
elave-harracoona, where tho newly-
arrived barbarians ure confined. Here
were congregated not less than i!,-
tHiu negroes, ready for sale. Home
were entirely linked, others nearly
in. Their heads were close-shaved,
nnd their bodies so emaciated by the
horrors of Lhe "middle passage"
that they resembled beasts more
thuu men. Certainly they did not appear Lo be human beings us they
gazed ubout wildly, with anxious
countenance!!,  ub if bewildered.
I have often been amused at the
preliminary instruction they are put
through after their arrival ut the
bnrrncoons. They are spated cross-
legged on the ground in a row ur
circle, and tbe -negro teacher passes
gravely before them nil, giving the
lesson. He moves his bunds quickly
tu und from his mouth, as though
putting something in it. Baying
"Yannny* Vamm.v!" all of the negroes imitating und repeating after
him. Tbis meant to eat, Tldo-flno
means somothlng good, choppy-choppy to work, yarry-yarry to got sick.
The teacher then goes around with a
cup of natlvo rum, and gives each a
sip In token of npprova). This uncouth vocabluary, when understood,
is enough to enable them to labor
011 the estates.
Before buying a purchaser examines ihem Lo ascertain their condition of health. If this appears satisfactory, he gives the negro a hard
ship In the face, and If he displays
no resentment, but looks up and
smiles, lie is hought. When theso
newly imported Africans nre lirst
taken, they are mude to work but
very little for several months, until,
by observing the other negroes, thoy]
are gradually trained tn labor; for
if they ure discouraged by driving
them at first, they ure apt to commit suicide, in the belief thnt they
will thus return to Africa.
