Mining Company, Limited, tbe compauy
organised by Mackenzie & Maim io take
over the North Star group near Kftuber*
ley, is now beiug floated In Toronto, An
extensive prospectus has been issued hy
lhe company, from which il is learned
that the company is capitalized witli
i.Soo.ax- shares of *i each, of which
amount 1.040,000 were given for the
property nml 460,^10 placed in lieasmy.
Ofthe treasury stock 203,OOD shares hnve
already been taken and 260,000 are now
offered for sale lo provide working
capital for lhe company.
The directors of the new company are:
I), i). Mann, president; A. A. Thribac-
ileau, Montreal, vice-president; Charles
ti. L. Porteous, Montreal, secretary anrl
treasurer; ti. S. Holt, Montreal, ami
William Mackenzie, Toronto.
The prospectus sets for 111 the following: The quantity of ore blocked out In
the mine ready for extraction amounts
to 23.500 tons, lhe nvcraye contents ol
Inch per tou are 39.1 ounces of silver
an 1 52.4 per cent lend.
At this rate the ore in sight has a gross
value of f.61 93 per ton, equal to £1,458,-
355; which, after deduction of cost of
mining, transportation, duly and treatment, will yield a net profit per tou ol
$22,21, or n grand totnl of J521 935 available for dividends. This will enable the
company to pay 1 per cent per month
on $1,300,000 the present issued capital,
for a pericd of over three years from ore
in sight alone.
Arrangements have been made with
lhe Canadian Pacific railway to construct a branch line to lhe mines, which
will probably he completed hy October.
The company will contribute $50,000
towards the cost; but this amount will
he refunded by a rebate of 33 Jj' per cent
of all charges on nil freight going over
the line until the $50,000 is fully repaid,

The Union Jack.
The Union Jack work is progressing
steadily, and-the showing te very Balis-
factory. At ths depth of thirteen feet
a seam of laic, carrying lead carbonates,
cut the vein horizontally, and beneath
the talc a notable difference in the ledge
matter occurs, the quartz being much
softer and more easily broken, and showing [considerable galena and copper at
thc bottom.of the shaft. The walls continue true, and tlie width,-*-1/, lhe ledge
holds well. On Monday Messrs. Mclnnes, Ryan and McVittie drove out to the
shaft with;Mr. Saucier, who is well
known as a mluiugeugtneer of the Rossland camp. Mr. Saucier stated'that the
property showed every indication .of becoming a mine and expressed himself
generally in favor ofthe prospects of the
claim, stating llial Le thought a large
body of ore might be. encountered at
a slight depth.
A Strike On the My Hull. ;
A welcome strike was made al the*
Pay Roll mine last week in the main
ledge, a body of exceedingly rich looking'galena ore being brought to view.
The shaft is down now about forty-live
feet below the floor of tbe tunnel, nnd
lhe \al'.ie of the ore across lhe ledge is
now such that shippiug will be possible
as soou as snow allows of raw-hiding the
ore to the railway. Considerable work
has lately been ''one ou the small leads
which tap the big ledge, and on the
dump many1 tons of ore, which carry
high values iu telhirides, much of it going .into the thousand dollars per ton.
Mr. Vandecar and his associates feel
highly pleased with tbe outlook, and the
town of Cranbrook can be congratulated
on having one more shipping mine iu its

Ujiliam  J. Wood«ard  Commits Suicide la
William J. Woodward, well known in
South East Kootenay. committed suicide
iast Thursday at Spokane. He was deliberate in his work. He put on a silk
nigctgowu. got his clothes in older, took
the morphine, folded bis a-rns and died.
The Spokesman-Keview has the following:
J. V. McCabe. a friend, said that he
waa in good humor when he saw him
last He had lost $So that day, but that
would not bother him, as he had often
lost more than that.
On a sta::d was a magazine and on the
top sheet this message was written:
"Spokane. Aug. 17, '99.—Friend McCabe: Well, my troubles will have
closed when yon read this. I have nothing to say or isk but one favor. Do not
let anvone know who I am. Your sincere fiiend W.J. W."
Lowpr down on the same page were
two words written in a more wavering
hand. Th*»y were the last message,
■■Good bye."
Sunday's i^sue of the Spokesman-Review had the following:
The loneliest of funerals, followed by
the dreariest of butials—the cervice
where none is present -ave the minister
and the undertaker—was held yesterday
fioui the undertaking room*; of Smith in
Company. The funeral was lhat of
William J. Woodward, of Nelson, IJ. C,
who committed suicide last Thursday in
the BelleVne house by swallowing morphine. It cau scarcely be said, even,
that a funeral was held. Canon I'errine,
of All Saints' cathedral, spoke a brief
prayer at lhe chapel, and the casket was
borne lo the hearse. The forlorn cortege—the hearse and one carriage bearing the clergvman aud the funeral
director—moved to Greenwood cemetery.
Here the coffin was lowered into a
grave made in an out-of-the-way Spot, a
spadeful of earth was thrown 111, and lhe
cation from All Saints rea I a burial service. Not the burial .urvicc of lhe
Episcopal church, fi.r that is denied a
suicide; bul 1. service made for the occa-
ion.    Theu ihe grave was closed, and
the flowerlees mound was deserted.

Iu a signed article in Tho Electrical
Review Nicola Teshi describes some of
his experiments in tbe Iim; of electrical
currents of high voltage and gives details of the coil which he used. "Tlie
discharges of snch a coil," he adds,
"when of an electromotive force of n
few millions of volts, excite powerful
affinities in the atmospheric nitrogen,
causing it to combine readily with the
oxygen nnd other elements, particularly
in the presence of aqueous vapor
"So energetic are these actions and
ho strangely do such powerful discharges
behave that I huve often experienced a
fear that the atmosphere might he
ignited, a terriblu possibility, which
Sir William Crookes, with his piercing
intellect, has already considered. Who
knows imt snch a calamity Is possible?
And who can tell with certitude that
periodical cessations of organic life ou
tbe tflobe might not be caused by ignition of the air and destruction of its
life sustaining qualities, accidentally
or as ft consequence of  Home accuuinla-
tlve change? A lump of coal will lie
fnr centuries unaffected iu contact with
oxygen, but. the com bust foil once started, tho process continues as long as
thero are elements tti combine."

the least of these is to mako ft great

aud lhe success which has attended lhe

The cobra Is passionately fond of music
and is no mean orltlo thereof. As n rule,
it only hours tlm bagpipe, but if ther.! be
any Instrument which ic loves more than
another it is tho violin, lt Is this amiable
weaknessthntsometttnes renders it a posl*
tivo danger to tbo unislciil householder in
India. Uy a reciprocity of causation this
lovo of music in the cobra works fur Its
own destruction. For tf a cobra takes up
its abode lu tbo neighborhood of a dwelling houso it is customary to send for a
couple of professional snako charmers.
Ono of thuni strikes up a tiiuu near tho
placo where tho cobra Is supposed to bo.
No matter what tbo creature may he
doing at tho thuu, oven if it bo out visit-
in;', so to speak, at somo neighboring;
house, it Is soon attracted by tlm music.
It emerges slowly from its hiding place
nnd strikes up an attitude In front, of tlm
player. Thoro it Is kept engaged wilh the
music till tbu other man gradually OrcopS
behind with a handful of line dust. At a
convenient moment, when tlio cobra ia
standing motionless, this man Biiddonly
throws tho dust over the head and eyes of
tho snake.
Immediately the cobra falls its full
length upon tho ground-— for one brief second, but that second is enough. Liko a
lightning flash—nny, with ono and the
same motion with which lie cast tho dust
-—ho seizes tho prostrate cobra by tho neck
jnst below tho bead. In tierce anger the
Blinko Winds and winds Its body round tho
arm of its enpior, but to no purpose It
CAIIIIOt turn its head to idle. If It be do-
sirahlo to extract the fangs nt once, tha
captor presses his thumb on the threat ol
the cobra and thus compels it to open   its
mouth* then the fangs nro drawn with n
pair uf pincher!-. if, however, iho operator
desires to keep the snake intact for iho
present, the Into musician oilers bis aid
and, forcibly Unwinding the coils, places
the body of thc oobrn in a basket, all but
the head (which Is still hold by tlie Other
man), and presses down tho lid to prevent
tho cobra from wriggling out Thcnstid-
denly tho captor thrusts the head In aud
bangs down tbo lid.
In tho above description two men are
needed to capture the snake, but a vory
expert channel- may do tho foot single
handed, though it  is hlglily dangerous,
Tliis ts the meth.il employed: While playing wlih one hand ho thfOWS the dust
sideways with Uie other and captures tho
niiuko with that baud. Of courso Iho
whole notion is liken lighi mnu Hash, ami
half a second's delay ur tho merest bungling either in throwing the dlUtorln
catching the snake at llio proper place
may prove fatal to ibe operator.—World
