As KIMBERLEY is bound to be the MINING TOWN
OF EAST KOOTENAY, being situated in the center of the
strongest mineral zone in British Columbia, containing such
mines as the Norlh Star, Sullivan, Quantrcll, Buckhorn, Stem*
winder. Black Bear, Kootenay Consolidated, etc. Now is the
lime to purchase lots, as there are only a few left, and as the
C. P. R railway arrived in town this week, a rush for lots will
leave somebody in the cold.

London, Feb 21 —Rumors of relief of

force in Free State were in air from
early hour yesterday. One was uatural
1111 ere ucc from Buller's passage of rivet
without opposition owing to retirement
of ,Geu. Joubert's forces. Olher.- came
from parliament where persistent statements to eflett that portion of Cronje's
forces had been surrounded, were foi
lowed by fresh explanation tbat rein-

that surrender either of rear guard ot
2000 or of entire army of 8000 retreating
from Magersfontein was a matter of few
Haul fighting is evidently going on
between Boer forces uuder Cronje and
British troops who have overtaken and
beset him. No im formation from Hii tish
sources have however yet been allowed
to transpire as to final results of or even
as to course fighting has thus far taken.

Some Hoi Warfare on the Floor of
thc Hourse Mixed With
Many Personalities.
The Canadian casualties at Modder
were brought to attention of parliament
yesterday by Sir Wilfred Laurier, The
premier paid a beautiful tribute to self
sacrifice ol Canadians and tbeir baptism
of fire. Sir Charles Tupper seconded
Sir Wilfred's remarks in tannest man*
ner. A telegram was scut to Col. Otter
thinking his men on behalf of government and parliament for the gallantry
displayed. _____
London, Feb. 16.— The Daily Mail
has the following dispatch from Lorenzo
Manjues*, dated Weduesday:
"A prominent Fretoria citisen just
from Ladysmith informs me that the
Hoi is are rapidly damming Klip river.
Two thousand Kaffirs are employed iu
the work and they have deposited 10,000
sand bags already. Tbey are only able
lo work at uight, as by day tbey would
be under British fire. This citizen,
however, believes that the operation
will be futile."
London, Feb. 20.—A member of the
cabinet told 11. W. Lucy that the war
ollice had a telegram announcing tbat
lieu. Cronje was hopelessly surrounded.
Tlie umleraecretaty for war, Geo.
Wyildhatu, wus beset by anxious mem-
tiers of ihe house, but would only reply
that the government's news was extremely satisfactory, the sole explanation of government withholding
good news is that confirmation aud
more details are awaited,

heen duly measured for its coffin, and
b.ls are freely offered that its demise
will   be recorded   within   the next six
dayi-t,     There is,  indeed,  a suggestion
that   the  government   recognizes   the
hopelessness of its position and   will
make a statement to the house followed
by resignation orsuggeated coalition, foi
quite contrary to all  expectations the
Friday sittings were cancelled without
apparent reason, and a protracted cabi-
uet meeting (following a caucus of the

I  is terminated by resignation ou

Tbe Strike Ended.
Nelson, B.C., Feb. 15—Tlie miners'
unions of Sandon. Silverton and N'ew
Denver yesterday decided lo accept the
owners' compiomise offer made some
weeks^ago. This, sofarascau be learned,
was done by a resolution declaring that
they would recognize $,*-. 25 ns the
standard wages for an eight-hour day
instead of $350 as heretofore. Their
decision means thai the strike is oft,
though the mine owners huve not of
ficially recognized the unions. There is
nothing now between the two, as thc
mine owners are willing to pay what tlu
unions now demand.
Private advices from tbe Slocan show
tbat the men are already going up lo lhc
mines to work, though it is unlikely that
for a day or two, at any rate, there will
be euough men to fill all the vacant
places. The labor troubles in lhe Slocan
may now be considered over, and lhat
district wilt Again eider upon a season
of prosperity.
The local uuinn has as'yet taken no
action, but as the mines, with ihe exception of the Hall mines, nre now nil
working it will make hut Htttedifierence.
What effect, if any, the resumption of
mining operations in lhe Slocan will

Boers however effectively effected a retreat removing their guns and convoy

General Robert's generalship was conducted with such seciecy, says a telegram

have four members in place of three, the
ridings being north, west, soulh and
east respectively . The whole of Lillooet
will return oue member instead of ont*
for east ami wesi as at present. Cariboo

minister was proved uuflt to occupy so
high a position as he now does as a rep*
rePCtltative of the people of British Columbia, in the first place because he bad
deliberately falsified tbe minutes of the
executive council in the Deadmans Is-

had cast contempt upon a law of the
piovince ami been sent to goal therefore
iu connection with the Cordon case at
Vancouver in 1894; at d iti the third instance, because he hail been guilty'of
frauds in Colorado before coming to this

his creditors. In reply to the address of
the mover for a committee of inquiry
(seconded as a favor by Mr. Robertson,

Mr. and Mrs. Archibald Leitch ami

to his children, and it gives the only
true account of the situation:
On Steamer Moyie,
Nelson, Feb. 17, 19 a.
My dear children: You have no doubt
heard uf whu befel us ou our arrival
here, but iu any case vou may not ha\e
heard the particulars and the truth. I
*vill give you an account of it all. To
begin, on Recount of the train being late
be day we lefl Cranbiook, we missed
mr connection bete uud bad to remain
over night in Nelsjn.    Well, we arrived
a Nelson wbatf about -v.-,'-. and at once
proceeded to tbe hotel, got beds and
had ii good night's rest. Next morning
is we were dressing, Archie knocked Ht
>ur door atul told us we would have to
go back to tbe boat as a case of am ill
poi bid been found and we were wanted
to bave our clothes disinfected, and
would Ottly be wautM for n few hours,
So we iuuoc n ly a ie I a *« on 1 ca d
and lo our atUaxetneut were laid that we
were quarantined for fourteen days. We
found out that nf.tr we bad landed one
ofthe wallers complained of being sick
and was sent up to the hospital aud the
doctor pronnunced it small pox and bu -
ried him ' act to the boa', lie was kept
m bis too.11 ou li e upper deck a'l day,

irg they ha I prepared for htm. We
are well treated, hive lots to eat. a good
COmrorUOle bed and a nice roomy s'Ute
room. Nothiug definite has In-en done
toward disinfecting the boat. Tbe doctor came on board last night and vaccinated everyone. Theie are about thirty
passengers ia all and twenty of a crew-so
there are about fifty ot OS all lold. The
health officer came on board tonight aud
told us that the bn-U would be disinfects! tomorrow. While this was being
done we would Se put on t»oard a train.
an-J then h-te'w on the boat for twelve
days Irrm tonight. We are fi^h'.ing
hard to get this time shortened but do
not expect to succeed 1 so you may make
jp your minds to see u-> remain here for
two weeks more. Tbew: are all the particular* just as ihey occurred. Now, all
we can say is dont fret and be good
children. We fio not anticipate anv
trouble or danger as tbe case was not far
advanced ami the room he was in well
removed from tlie rest ofthe boat, being
ob the upper deck, above the one in
wnich we live. This is the first chance
we have had to write, and this will have
to be disinfected before it is mailed.

to mo*t of the visitors; the catalogue
was usually preserve*! by suburban
patrons for the purpose ot frightening
birds.   Yet the gallery whh not without
attraottons un a cold day when the wind
cut along from the lin-cn pari*, down
Piccadilly, racing another wind
which waa speeding madly along Pall
Mall with a slight start In advance to*
ward Waterloo plan*.
-It does one good," said Mr. James
Marohant, "to oorao to-a show like this.
if 1 ever go out to the Cape again—"
"Which you won't," said the youn^
ludy. ■
"And I feel wislfiil—"
"Mul du [xi-vm," suggested the young
"Kxactly. Why. then. I shall think of
thi.s hideous collection of pictures, nnd
I shall feel reconciled to my hit.   The
Cape is not iill honey, but at any rate
you do get nature Bhere.  And nature
ia always good."
"I Kiipp*ns«* these artists think she can
lie Improved by the Introduction of a
little novelty."'
"I wouldn't," said Mr. .lames Mar-
chant, waving his stick round the gallery. "I wouldn't give twopence half-
jHMiny for tin* lot of them."
"I don't suppose they would <*-arr lo
nell them for less."
Mr. .Tames Marchant laughed •fooil-
temperedly, and torched her hum),
whioh happened to bt* resting on her
fcnee. It wns a very pretty hand nnd
very neatly gloved, and there was gbod
excuse for him.
"But  then1   is something," he said,
lowerinfr. his voice, "something in the
gallery, Rlla, that I would give every
penny I have in rhe world to possess,"
"A picture?" .
J   "Prettier than nny picture."
{   "Better shaped t ban any statuary,"
"Not disposed of already?"
"I hope not. There is only one difficulty—I nm not sure, if I wen* to muke
an offer now, that it would be accepted."
"How shall yon find out?"
He rose nnd adjusted his frock oont
with the manner of n mun to whom for
some years frock coots had not been
fumiliur wear. He was a tall, brown-
faced man, with a good deal of earne-at-
nesd In his eyes.
"I shall aak Mrs. Beckett."
"01" »he wild. She (rasped a littlo before she went on. "And you—you think
my stepmother will be—will be. able to
advise yoit in the matter?"
"I think she will." They walked slowly on tbe thick carpet to the awing
doors,  "Besides, It's only fair to do so."
"It seems to me," she said, rolling up
her catalogue very tightly, "rather an
old-fashioned mode of procedure."
"There is tbis excuse in my eiase.
Mrs. Beckett has nu idea, I nm afraid,
that I huve brought back from tlie Cape
untold gold. I want to make her tinder-
stand that when I say I shall have to
work for m,y living, I really mean it."
"I am glad," she said, quietly,
"I shall see you to-night?"
"I am not sure," she said, wilh lier
little bund resting for a moment In his.
"I think the invitation is for two only."
"I have a great mind,"said Mr. James
Merchant, looking down at her affectionately, "to kiss ynu."
"That is no evidence of a great mind,"
she said, reprovingly. "Besides, you arc
In London now."
"And don't people kiss in London?"
"They don't kiss mc, Mr. Murchaiil."
"I am very glad of that."
"And people don't talk of kissing at
the doors of picture ghllerles."
"I am afraid," said James Marehnnt
apologetically, "that I have much to
learn before 1 become rccivlllzed. The
Cape m:ike one forget nJI one's manners,"
"It has not mode you forget your
friends," she said.
"There waa one." *»*» •*»'" am i-.» ua.
Slated her Into the hansom, "she was
only a small girl—"
"Not old enough to count?"
"Of whom 1 thought every (lay of my
life out there."
There were tears in ber eyes that
challenged the lightness of her good-
by. The small gloved hand was pressed
In the bi*? fist of the man from the Cape
for one moment, and then he gdve the
address to the driver.
A bright face with the tears of happiness Mill there looked through the glass
iu the hansom drove off, and Mr. James
Marehnnt strode nway with a glad heart
tO -see a businessman in Bedford street.
For men who want to earn money must
force their thoughts away even from
the direction of pleasant young women.
It was by great dexterity thnt at dinner in Duke street mansion that night
Mr. Jumps Marehnnt contrived to get
himself paired with tbe excellent Mrs.
Beckett. Mrs. Beckett declared herself enchanted; but this wns so frequent a declaration on the part of Mrs.
Beckett that it was held to mean .something less than the phrase really meant.
"I should have thought, you would
have Insisted, stm—ply insisted on taking down my dear Madeleine."
Mrs. Beckett, fluttered her fan nt Mr.
Marchant in a manner that hud in the
early seventies been pronounced bewitching.
"I want particularly to speak to ynu,
Mrs. Beckett. I want to otter myself—"
"S—■**.—sb," said Mrs. Heckett, mysteriously. "Not a word. I know ex*
ictly what you nre going to sny. Madeleine, my dear," She called to a. tall,
bony damsel just iii Trout, of them.
"Vou haven't, shaken hands with dear
Mr. Marehnnt. How very remiss of
you.   The detjg.girl is so thoughtless*
do you know, Mr. Marchanr, lhat I declare to goodness 1 believe she's in
Mlas Madeleine received this raillery
with u grim smile and shod; hands
with Mr. Marubaut. Miss Madeleine
explained that her half-sister Ella bad
remained at home because fahe had
some writing to do.
"Poor KHa.* said Mrs. Heckett, with
effusive sympathy, "poor, dear girl.
I'm really dreadfully fond of her. Vou
must give me your advice, Mr. Merchant, concerning her nt dinner. I
feel already forgive me for suylug bo—
I feel already as though J"0U were one
of the family."
Mrs. llockett gave her little cackle of
aplf-npproval and general satisfaction

"Maidenly reserve?" suggested Max-
"Pre—alscly! Pre—clsely whal I wns
trying tb say. How clever of you. dear
Mr. Marchant. 1 can understand now
bow it was you got on so woll in South
.Africa. And your assertion that you
had come home with very Utile was.
I cou Id pee, only a pretense to try us,—
Ves, sherry, please."
"I waul lo spcall in you about that,
Mrs. Beckett. I'm ufraid you don'l
realize what 1 mean when 1 say that I
haven't brought much home with nu*."
"Now, my dear Mi*. Marchant."
"Vou must allow me, please, to tell
you exactly my position. Unless I
work and earn money we shan't have—"
"Mr. Marchant! This elaborate ruse
is on,- that I have heard of before. A
woman like myself doesn't live in this
world for—well, a certain number of
years for nothing."
"No," said Mr, Marchant; "it costs
money, I know."
"That is not at all what I mean. But
when you come back from the Cape a
few weeks ago and hinted that you bad
only a few hundreds I could sec through
it at once. It was—this is n dreadfully slangy expression—too thin. But
the dear girl, of course, didn't see
Ihyough it. and consequently you may
feel quite sure that she will love you
for yourself alone. That's all you
wauled. Isn't It?"
"That, certainly, is all that I wanted,
"And, fortunately enough, to confirm
my suspicious, I came across a letter
addressed to a friend of nunc — she
didn't know ihat I saw it, but I managed to do so ail lhc same—from your
partner, Uurchison."
"neatly?" Mr, James Marehnnt was
suddenly interested.
"And Mr, Buchlson said that ynu and
he had made a pile—such un odd expression. Isn't lb—of £80,000. And he
suid thut he thought you would both
stay on for a few years, hut as we know
yoji sensibly enough came home."
Mrs. Heckett looked triumphantly
across at her angular daughter opposite, who was bawling information
about the weather to a deaf archdeacon,
and then at Marcliiint, .She shook her
head waggishly at the mini from the
"Can I see that letter?" he asked,
"Fortunately T hnve it in my pocket,
but I really don't know whether I ought
to show it. to you. Vou see it isprivalc."
"is that why you took it, Mrs. Beck-

"Come, come, Mr. Marchant. Don't

She found the letter with some difficulty—for thc pockets iii ladlcs'dresses
are remote and difficult of access—and
under ambush, of his plate Marchant
read it.
"Mrs.Beckett.'Miesaid,excitedly, "you
have, without knowing it, done me a
very great service. Uurchison declared
to mo ihat he had invested om- gains,
and that nil tho money had been lost.
It, seems from Ihis letter that he has
behaved shamefully, and I shall make
him disgorge every penny that belongs
to me, I shall go back to the Cape by
the next boat."
"This Is very unshtlsfaotory," declared Mrs. Beckett, aggrievedly. "You
can't very well get married before next
"The dear girl will wait," be an-
Hwm-ed, confidently.
"I'm not so sure of that," said Mrs.
Beckel t, with some snappish-iens.
"Dear Madeleine is not so young as
site was."
"So 1 should judge, llut what, has
sbe to do with lhe ufl'air?   Is sbe to
\>e bridesmaid?"
"Madeleine bas been bridesmaid often
enough," said Madeleine's mot her.
"This time, providing this money affair of yours comes out night, she will
be the bride."
"Whose bride, Mrs. Beckett?"
"Why, bless the man," cried Mrs.
Beckett, "yours."
"I don't see how that ean be managed
with convenience. There's u law against
bigamy, I believe. Besides, I only want
to marry yonr stepdaughter."
"Klla?" cried Mrs. ItcckclL.ainazedly.
"If ynu don't, mind."
Mrs. Beckett laid down herflshknlfe
and fork and stared distractedly
around the table at the other guests.
Finally ber eyes rested on Madeleine,
and she frowned so much at that young
I lady that Madeleine asked across the
1 table in an audible tone if she were ill.
"Ill.'" echoed Mrs. Beckett, tartly; "I
have uncommonly good cause to he. To
think lhat I have taken atl (his trouble
for the sake, of poor Mr. Beckett's ridiculous little daughter by his first wife.
Why, she isn't worth—"
"Rxeiise me," Interrupted Marehnnt,
promptly; "you will remember, please,

watched and prayed for the result. Al
noon I gavo him more and also at supper.

Toronto, Dee. 13.—A few weeks ago
the press of this city gave the particulars of a BuccesBf nl case of skiu-graftiug,
a large number of patients iu the hospital voluntarily permitting the surgeons to take rom their arms and
chests small pieces ot skin, whioh
were "graft.d" on the back of a young
Ind who had been terribly burned sometime previously, aud whose back was
eotirely covered with these engrafted
pieces', which bnvo "taken root"OO to
speak, in tho most satisfactory umuuer.
Now oomes tho report of n still more
wonderful triumph of medical skill—a
mau who was horribly mangled and
broken by a full of forty-five feet, and
who has beeu an almost totally help
less cripple iu cousequence, having re
stored to him the comparatively full
use of his limbs, and fully all his
wonted strength and health. Tbe narrative is a nin-t interesting one and
shows clearly the wonderful extent of
modern medical resoorces.
The man who lias had this rare experience is George Kobeits, a well-
known bricklayer, who lives at 82
Armstrong Avenue. At the time of the
accident be was working on one of the
walls of the building now knowu as
the Toronto Opera House, bnt which
was tbeu the Adelaide Street Roller
Skating Kink. The bones of both bis
legs Wi re broken nt the ankles, the
joints iu bis left foot* were dislocated
and other Injuries equally severe
wero iuflicte.1. For six mouths the victim lay in the hospit.il, his legs iu
splints, and bis foot in a plaster of
Paris cast. The most skilful medical
meu iu Toronto attended him, nnd succeeded in setting tbe fractured bones in
tbe legs bnt the dislocated joints of the
foot detled all their skill. It was fouud
□tterly impossble to keep the bones in
their places, and at the end of six
months Mr. Roberts left the hospital a
helpless eripplo, with little prospects of
ever recovering the me of the foot. After a time, however, the hones grew together and be was thus enabled to
move about, though there was uot tbe
least seir.blnuco of movement in the
joints, Mnt with this change enme uew
troubles. Rheumatism of t he most
agonizing nature set iu.nud his nervous
system became a source ef continual
torture. Day aftor day, experiments
intended for his relief wero mado, doctor after doctor treated him, oue kind
of medicine after another was used,
hut effort* were fruitless. For two
years he etuluied increasing torment,
and. as be to'.d the reporter, bad it not
been for the sinfulness of the petition,
he would have prayed thnt be might
die. This pitiable suffering coutiuued
until a few weeks ago, wlen what
many of bis neighbors look upon as a
gonuiue miracle bo was completely ie-
stortd to heath, ln a v. ice broken and
quivering wilh emotion, he told tho
reporter bow this happened.
"Of late my sufferings hnd grown almost unbearable. Tbo lower portion
of my body was entirely without feeling, except tbat of the burning iifjotiy
caused by my rheumatism, and my
quivering nerves. 1 was at this time,
watching with tnterut the case of a
