It la a Ureal Success—Ths   Editors  Had  a
Warm Time.
The Spokane exposition, which optn.d
on the third, is a greater  success  this
year thnn ever before.    The exhibit! ire
numerous and well displayed and tbe
music furnished by the Canton band is
greatly appreciated by those futtuuate
enough to have heard them.
iMt Saturday was editors' day and the
Nortbwestern States niid British Columbia wftB largely represented. Thc Spokane Press club and the exposition management united in giving the visitors n
day's entertainment tbat will go down
in history nn one ofthe warmest times

entertainment nt the exposition, followed by a theater pkrty thnt evening. At
II o'clock llie visitors were escorted to
Davenport's celebrated restaurant where

was a magnificent collation, ratij«in>;
from the daiitlest of dishes lo wines ol
various colors antl strength. The theory
of expansion became a favorite one, and
at 2:30, when the last speech had been
made, and the last song sung, there was
only a feeling of joy nnd thankfulness in
the hearts of the visitors, and pain lu
their digestive organs as welt. The rest
of the entertainment was lively and to
the point, Spokane newspaper boys are
princes and Manager Bolster, of the exposition, can d:aw on us when be gets

The right of way for the North Star
tramway is being burned oil' and tbe
tram will be built aud put in operation
without delay. Tho system is to be tbat
of wire haulage with suspended ore buckets running by the force of gravitation.
Tlle length of the line will be about one

terminus will be about a mile above
Kimberley. Willi the North Star branch
in operation and the tram delivering ore
steadily, the North Stnr will be one of
the largest shippers iu lhe province of

Tbe Excess Mineral Claim.
The Excess mineral claim, which lies
on tlie Crows Ni'Sl railway about five
miles from Cranhrook. is iu a particularly favorable position for economic
working. The southwest corner qf tbe
claim crosses tbe railway, but the tunnel
site is about half a mile therefrom by
road or tramway route. Tbe prospect*

good wagon road, and follows the lode
to a depth of sixty-five feet. The owners have done considerable prospecting
work. At llie surface it was difficult to
decide on the exact position ofthe lode
owing lo lhe broken surface, copper being found in small masses nud in string
vtius ever a width of about forty feet.
A shaft was started at one side to allow
for the dip. passing through the hanging
wall at about twenty leet in depth, file
shaft was then turned aud run down on
the lode, keeping the banging wall for a
roof The foot wall bas not yet been
found. The ore shows in chutes of
different widths, witb horses of diorite
between, and sometimes disappears almost entirely, but a distinct improve
ment was observed for every fool gained
in depth, until now al a depth of sixty-
five feet, there is a good three feet of
well-mineralized black quartz with cop-
per sulphides, but it is evident that the
tiue ore body is not yet reached. The
present ore body is fully five feet below
thc hanging wall, tbat five feet being
filled wilh couutry rock and seams of
quartz, and it is probable tbat lhe bulk
of Ibe ore is still nearer tbe foot wall.

The editor of ihe Fort Steele Prospector Indulged In n pipe dream last week
over the fact that Borne gentlemen in
Colorado found a map without the town
of Cranbrook printed Ihereou, anil went
into ectnslcs of delight over tbis overwhelming evidence th.it Cranbrook wns
n rilling. The people of Craubrook
nre not any more) responsible for tbe
mistakes of map making than they are
for the foolish breaks made by the Pros
pecti r. They are too busy with their
own prosperity and the prosperity ofthe
district to piy any attention to such
childish prattle.
As lo tbe outsiders, lhe men wilh capital to invest, and railway managers,
who are building railways 111 South ti.nst
Kootenny—they evidently are using n
different map, ns they do not experience
any difficulty in locating Cranbrook*
As n result tnousnnds of dollars are beiug invested in permanent Improvements
and already two railroads have been
built to the town. Business blocks ami
resldeucofl are going up on every side,
and one of ihe strongest loan companies
in Canada sent its manager lo Cranhrook to investigate the town ns a field
for perm ment investments. The maua-
ger came, nnd after a careful investigation said, "Cranbrook Is all right, her
permanency i-i assured ami our company
has thousands for Investment hera,"
A ilot cm ii map lines not stand for

ists and home builders, blessed with

a town speaks for itself.

An editor of a newspaper has responsibilities that should he sacred, and be
should always hear hi mind that individually lie amounts to very little in the
progress ol ilu-community iu which h
lives. He is simply one of many, aud
his demise would not change conditions.
Some one else, perhaps ^better and
stronger, would carry on the work. Too
inaiiv newepaper men claim for themselves whit is due lo the ue-vspaper.
The newspaper te simply the public
medium for Lhe people, or at least it
should lie, mul imi ihe vehicle for conveying lhe personal feelings of prejudice
and spite ol the editor. It is only on
such a basis that a newspaper-Jean he fair
and honest with all.

I've battled thr-utn adversity when skies

To win of tickle fortune but a feather III

An' I've never felt a Hurry nor tha smallest mite dlalressed
Till Sol had sunk iu slumber In tlio cradle

It always seemed that even, with its darkness an' Um dew,
Brought forth ti host o* pygmies, air these
little troubles grew
Till,  like Qulliver,  they  bound  me, an'
wln-n hope had nearly gone
I felt a peace come Bteullng through the

-Hoy Parrell Greene, lu Leslie's Weekly.
It was two years since Joe BenUey
md left hia home in a .quiet little Ohio
town to seek his fori une. in the west,
for two years eotlll working dny had
found him at. hte desk in n large mer-
•untilc house in Chicago. He had been
forl.ii mitt- iu seen ring a position at onee,
throiigha brother of liis town postmaster, who win* now chief olerk in tho offico. Joe will never forget lho.se two
years—lonesome two years they wore,
tlie more lonesome, perhaps, because he
hud never been nwny from homo and
ithong stir-angora before.
When he ilrsi eame lo Chicago the
world's fair nnd other-attractions made
the city a wonderful place for theeoun-
:ry hoy, Imt these soon paled or passed
rwny, ami the loneliness settled upon
iim aa he felt himself u stranger in a
itrango hind.
For n time he attended ebiireh.ashad
lei-ii his, habit, at home, but lhey were
iticli large places, und the oongregn-
ion and young folks dressed und'neted
to difTisrenlly from the church folk td
tome thai, he li nn Ily got. in the hll hit
)f Staying away.    lie sorely missed his
own acquaintances, the com pun iim-
ihip of his .sisters and brothers nnd the
•right smile of Cousin Pan, who used
io pop In so unexpectedly and leave
inch a volume of sunshine In-hind her
wben her father would come to town io
In Ids marketing.    The   girls   with
Whom some of his fellow clerks nssoci-
iteil, and with whom they tried lo make
aim at home, somehow failed fo (ill the
lilf. Somehow il didn't seem righl for
the fellows to groel them on the -street
with a fnnjilinr slap on Ihe shoulder
md ii "Hello, Kit, old glirl, how you is?"
nnd in spile of himself he fell too mueh
>f an aversion to them to enjoy himself
>r make himself entertaining, and
Imppcd Ihem.
At hist a change came—gradually, to
ie sure, sri slowly thnt .Ior* hnrdly
knew there had been a change till it
i\as then*. For .several days the seal
It. the Opposite end of the talile in the
-est a ii rant where Joe ale lunch had
beep occupied hy a modost-appearing
Utile woman, whose long limbos fringed
he   darkest  of   blue eyes, and   whose
illghtly pouting tips and rounded
iliceka glowed with the natural health
whioh can never Ih- duplicated by urt
tnd which only country nir enn give.
The iu-\t day she Willi Ip the same seal,
ind Ihe next, and the next, ami Joe soon
•ame to look forward, linthlngingly, h>
iee tllO brlghl face of the unknown.
(hie day the chair was vacant, and
Foe, with n sense or deep disappoint-
ment, luie-w why It was he looked forward so eagerly to the noonday meal,
I'he next, noontime he took particular
pnlns with his toilet and was so Impatient tlmt he wns nt lhe table five
minutes before his nooustomed time,
-ilie waa not there, and his henrt sunk.
\ minute inter it Ijounded again as he
iaw thowcJI-hnown llgure coming down
he aisle. As she pulled back her chair
preparatory to taking her scut, somehow or other, Joe never quite knew how-
it happened, the big blue eyes flashed
for a moment Into his and ho was on
his feet, bltiatilngnntl bowing.
This was the beginning, and tt be-
■ame cuslontary tn liow, Inler to ail side
hy side mul tnll* during lunch, nnd, if
lime permitted, to walk with lier as fnr
is t.he Monndnook building, where she
was employed. He had vainly tried to
discover her name, hut when he had
naively informed her that, it was awkward to call her "Say," she had asked
iim lo call her Blmply Miss Margaret,
Sliding thnt this was what she wns most
irenerully called and was most ne-
i-ustnmcd lo.
This went, on for sevcrnl weeks and
foe had several limes been on the verge
:>f naklng for her address, that ho might
.-all, or asking* her to accompany him
:o the theater, but he Itepl delaying, fenr-
ng- that lie might rupture the growing
friendship aud he left tlgahl to himself
and the lonesomeness of feeling Unit.he
knew almost no one.
One noontime (and Joe will always
rcjiicnilier it) she was not. In her accustomed place, although the day before
she had been speculating whut' lhe bill
of fare would be. ITc nte ns slowly na
he could and spent his whole noon hour
hi lhe restaurant, but when be lefl Uie
chair wns still vacant.   The next, dny
the sau xperienee.   Ile reproached
himself for nut. finding out more about
her— perhaps alio was sick ov hnd met
wilhuuaeehkuU At any rate, who knew
his name uml address-—why didn't sh
ut leu at diop him a I'tne.',' Surely it uu
cruel to leave him in such uncertain!)
He brooded over what might pusslbl;
hnve happened to her, till hts health he
gun to tall, lie never thought the dull;
walk of R few bloi-k.s eould mean »
much to him.
Several weeks passed by and thechai
still continued vacant. On the very da;
his lwo vein-, w.t^ tip Joo muciul.erei
that she had spoken of Oeonomowoo on
dny In eouncctlou witb her family, lb
would ash for a few daya' respite fron
work and yo up there. He hod novo
asked for u vacation and ihey surel;
would nol refuse him. Beside*, il wu
not fui' from i bicngonml many Chlengi
men went up Saturday nights lo spcm
Sundny with their families wlm imt.
Stopping Ihere.    Anyhow, he would g(
for the reat of tbe week—possibly In
mlghl see her or hear of her and th.
change would do him good even if b.
Tin- next morning, Wednesday, hi
Blurted. He-eould only be spared fo
the L'osl of the week, but what mlgb
not happen in four whole days? Whei
lie iu rived ut the depot of (he pretty lit
lie Wisconsin  town he found  blmsel
Anxiously looking around, though lu
condemned himself for his foollohnesi
in doing so—u hy should she be arount
the depot if she was in lhe town?
Afler he had (registered iit-u hotel hi
wandered aimlessly about, the town
admiring the handsome houses nud tin
beautiful twin lakes, and watching thi
launches, filled with happy campers
darting to and fro. In the afiternooi
he hired a hout and tried to lish, bm
after a couple of hours' effort, whei
ouly a couple of slekly-looktngdogflsl
rewarded bis efforts, be gave It up ii.
disgust nnd returned lo the hotel.
Al dinner >t)iut evening he was mudi
aware of the fact, that a circus was ir
town by a couple sitting across tin
table from bim, who had eotue In fron
lhe surrounding country and were fro
Ing. In the barber shop also there was
nothing talked of but the circus. It
mnde him feel quite at home to see tin
enthusiasm created by ithe mere fnctol
a circus being In lown. Mow different
from Chicago, where nothing seemed ti
be able to command but passing III
I e rest.
Then he remembered that at homt
everybody went to tbe circus—win
shouldn't they do ii here?-—and perhaps she might he there. He would gt
to the circus.
It was a in ile Into when Joe reached
ilie tent, lie hud not calculated on
how many would be abend uf him fot
ibe single bnrber's chair nor how long
it would take iiflie holel bootblack tu
imt. a satlsfaclory gloss on his shoes.
As he entered the lent he went down
I be open space lo I he ro|ws ami starting
ai one end gluaccd ns critically at each
luce as tlm Illckerlng or tho gasoline
lumps would allow. Of it sudden he
stopped, rubbed his eyes and looked
again, Ves. surely thai was Margaret,
looking fairer and more winsome than
ivcr, appearing qnile oul of place nraonn
the rustics who surrounded her—nnd,
" ondcr of wonders, f here wus mi empty
sent beside her. in a. matter of Um
minutes Joe Innl forced bis way to
where she sat nnd found himself al lier
side. She appeared glad to see him ami
loe felt supremely happy as explanations on both sides were being made—
Ibotigh he thought it st range thnt she
assigned no reason for her sudden do-
purl uro from Chicago.
All things must, huve an end and the
'iitcrtaiiiment came to a closo, doe's
request lo "see tier borne" hnd been accepted and he seemed to be trondingon
air as he lell the tent with the little
hnml resting lightly on his arm. As they
were uenring a crossing ami Joe wns
opening up the subject of carrying on
a correspondence a woman's form came
under Ihe light across the wny. Mar*
glirel half turned around to go back
with a "(iriieious, there's mn!" Joe
looked more closely mid SOW u midille-

look Margaret sharply hy lhe arm and
drew her to one side ns she said:
"I've been hllllllng for you everywhere—what made you change your

man for his company any further"—
with a scathing look at Joe—"I'm
ashamed of you, out with a young man
mid your wedding only three days oil'.
I'll he L'I in I when Frank has you to look
after instead of me."
And as Margaret was being hurried
away from him across the street, Joe

worn looking woman, evidently his
mother, sat beside hlm. At Fifteenth
street a particularly buxom woman of

wns no seat for her, and ahe stood glaring at the boy. Later ber dis ideas it re
vented Itself lu words, and Bhe expressed herself freely to tiie woman who
stood next lier about women who let
their children occupy seats while ladles
are standing. The worn looking woman flushed, but made no move to have
the boy surrender his seat. The buxom
womnn still glared and still expressed
herself willi extreme frankness. The
boy sat still. At N street the mother
rang the bell. As the-car stopped she
put her arms around the ooy nnd lifted
him lo his feet, half carrying him to
tbe door.
"Won't you take this seat?" she said
to the buxom wouiau. "liiiii just tub-
