The Banquet.
One of the most successful, aa well hs
most representative banquets ever held
iu South Kast Kootenay was that held
last Monday night at the Kootenay hotel
in Moyie, as a farewell testimonial to
P. P. Mope, the popular druggist of that
town, who departed from bachelonlom
yesterday. The arrangements, although
hastily made, were characteristic of
Moyie people. They started on the
theory that nothing was too good for such
an occasion, and fixing the basis at $5
a plate, they kept up the pace to the
glorious end.
It was 10:30 when the guests were
seated, and l-veryone present were loud
in their praise of the artistic artunge-
nt of the tables and the beautiful and
appropriate decorations of the room.
The ceiling was completely hidden by
graceful festoons of bunting and evergreens, while on one side, just behind
the chairman, hung a picture of the
Queen. J. A, Harvey, of Fort Steele, officiated as chairman, ami J. P, Farrell,
of Moyie, as vice chairman. To the
right of Mr. Harvey was Mr. Hope, the
guest, nnd to the left, Mr. Nicholas
Pi-sod Davln, of Kegina, who was visiting fi lends in the cily.
It was a hnppy crowd and as the
courses were being served, there was one
comment that wns almost universal, and
ihat was to the effect that snch a magnificent feast nml perfect appointments
told the story of Movie's rapid growth
ami increased prosperity iu a language
more eloquent than words

Alter the tempting viands had beeu
freely discussed, the fragrant weed was
passed and as the smoky clouds drifted
upwards and were lost in the wreathes
and fesloons, Chairman Harvey called
for a cessation ofthe conversation, and
then iu a feeling aud eloquent manner
spoke of tbe occasion and Mr. Hope, the
guest of the evening. He was followed
by Mr. Davln, who responded to the
toast of "Tbe Dominion." The gentle-
m 111 enjoys the reputation of being one
of the best nfter dinner speakers In Canada, aud bis eloquent eulogy on Canada
and Canadians wns 11 treat to all. Following Mr. Davin oue toast after nuother
was proposed until the subjoined list
had been duly attended to, nud in n wny
that reflected great credit upon the ability of Moyie citizens:

It was the sentiment of lhe meeting
that ibe new ollicers arrange fur complete reorganization of the board, nnd
prepare plans to secure the co-operation
of the citizens during the coining year
in tbe work for the best interests of
Cranhrook and South Fast Kootenay.
Quite a number of exchanges nre

The editor ofa weekly   newspaper   is
often condemned by those who Bhould
Itave only words of prnise.   Gratitude
toward the home paper too often gives
away to the desire to criticise, for all
sins of commission and ommlsslon. And
yet, the newspaper proprietor who Iihs
the proper understanding ol his responsibilities and liberties, never uses the
columns of his paper to play even or
give vent to personal enmities.

The Benefit In Aid  ef the Hospital  Was
Largely Attended.
The ball given by the ladies last Tuesday evening at Wentworth hall, for the
bent-fit of tlie St. Kugene hospital, was a
marked success In every way. Perhaps
there has never been a dance in this
district where those in attendance bad
such an enjoyable lime, The number
present was very large, but when the
tloor became loo crowded for comfort
the dancers took it iu good part and enjoyed it the mote. About 13 o'clock a
last)- lunch was served, after which
dancing was resumed   until a late hour.
Arrangements were made wilh Mr.
Wentworth for two reception rooms in
the hotel, which added very much to
the convenience of the program for the
evening. The committees in charge of
the entertainment were made up as follows :
Ball committee-— Mesdames Mclnnes,
Morris, Cosligan, Magee, Murphy, McConnell, Brown and Krickson.
Decoration committee— Messrs. II
Nevins, A. K. Watt, P. Rookes, K. Gunn,
A, L- McDermot aud M. Rockendorf.

The Herald will venture the assertion
that there is not another town In British
Columbia the sue of Crnnbrook where
merchants are carrying such fine stocks
as nre the merchants of this town, ll

The Odd Pellows' Ball.
Now that the social field is clear, the
committee In charge of lhe annual Odd
Pellows' ball will commence work at
once. 11 is the intention of the members of the lodge lo make this hall the
event of the year, nnd everything that
can be done to give those who participate a good time will be attended to
with enthusiasm, It is the visit of the
members that the weather will permit
those living in the neighboring towns
to attend, and it is quite probable that
the outside attendance will be large this
year. The committee, composed of W
S. Keay, Pred Pieper, A. I*. McDermot,
Malt Rockendorf and ti. ti. Simpson,
will hold a meeting at lhc lodge room
tomorrow night to discuss the plans.
A funeral was recently held In an Ontario lown on Sunday. Daring lhat

The Craubrook Herald says that John
Hutchison wenl lo Pernie on Monday to
inspect n few "barrels" of apples, as
quarantine officer. Does Cranbrook
usually get more than 300 barrels at a
time, or what does Brother Simpson
mean by "a few?"—Fernie Free Press
The Free Press is unnecessarily agitated over the use of a word in a slang
srtise in The Herald columns. Brother
Henderson is evidently ignorant of the
great American game of draw, or he
would be familiar with the world-wide
expression, 11 "few aces," meaning
mauy. Asa uinirod, our Pernie brother
is classed in the front rank.    Has lie not
heard a man with n fine string of ducks,
answer the question as to how many he
had killed, by replying "jusi a few."
A few, literally, menus, of course, a limited number, but in the lexicon of hlang,
has the diiect opposite meaning. "A
few barrels" of apples, therefore, may
mean oue or a do/en carloads. We trust
we have mnde our position dear nnd
that both the citizens of Pernie and Mr
Hutchison will not lake the view ofthe
matter as did lhe Free Press. If they
did they would have some reasons for
kicking.   Well, "jusi a few."
A New Store.
G. T. Rogers, who is connected wiih
Geo. Bremner & Sou at present, will
open a complete line of groceries and
crockery in the ro-r.ni now occupied by-
Mrs. Henderson as a fruit store, The
Herald Is pleased to set* Mr. Rogers settle permanently in Craubrook.    ile is a
hustler and will be a valuable acquisition

The Kimberley correspondent of the
Spokesra nil-Review - has the following
to say regarding lhe extension of the
Kimberley branch to lhe Sullivan mine:
The vexed question as to whal method
of ore transportation from the Sullivan
mine to the Kimberley station should
be adopted seems about lo he settled by
the extension ofthe Canadian Pacific's
line, the Sullivan Group company paying ior the grading. The distance from
the mine to the track is only a few miles
bul at present this distance has to be
covered by wagon and in consequence
Ihere nre several weeks in the year
when the mine cannot ship. Such a
condilioii has existed recently bul shipments have been resumed at the former
rate of about fifty tons daily.
I.ast BUUlllier tlie company surveyed n
line for n tramway and it was believed
lhat this would he constructed though it
was understood that an effort would be
made to secure arrangements with the
railroad company, ll is known that
Manager C. II. Wolf visited Montreal
lasl mouth to consult the Canadian Pacific officials in regard to building the
railroad right up to the mine and it is
believed thai the railroad compauy
agreed lo do this if the mine would do
the grading.
The Spokesman-Review correspond
enl asked Mr. Wolf fur a confirmation of
Ihls report, and he said: "Yes, it is true
that the railway company agreed to ex-
lend its track up to the mine if we
would do the grading, We have not accepted the offer as yet, but probably
shall do so if we find that the grading
will nol cost more tlm 11 a tram. The
building of the tracks right to our ore
bins would he much more advantageous
that the erection ofa tram, both for outgoing freight and incoming supplies."
There were twenty days during last
month and llie first fifteen days of this
mouth that tiie compauy could nol haul
a pound of ore down Lhe mountain to
the railroad on account of the soft roads,
but the recent heavy snow storm bas
made good sleighing and from now on
lhe shipments will again be regular,
At present the Sullivan ore is hauled
by wagon from the mine to the railroad
nt the foot of the mountain, which costs
lhe company one dollar per ton. By
this process also there is a loss of about
two mouth's shipments in the year, during the rainy season, wheu the roads are
loo soft to haul heavy wagons over.
A Fine Running Shot.
Harry Wright, of the C. P. R. shops,
brought into Cranhrook on Sunday evening a very fine specimen head of a black
tail deer, shot by him near his ranch at
Swansea, "It was my first deer," said
Mr. Wright. "I followed the tracks
through the snow for a couple of miles
before springing the quarry. Having
lhe advantage of me In scent and sight
he did not cultivate more intimate acquaintance than could be had at 133
yards, at which distance, although running at great speed, I cut him through
the spine. To say that he was astonished may be accepted without dispute. So
was I. He turned the scrde when
dressed at 2233-4 pounds. There is no
evidence of deer being about that district, save in solitary instances."
Mr. Wright nlso examined the Pretoria
claim, belonging to J. P. Bailley, and
expresses himself astonished nt Ihe immensely Iim-showing.
McVittle & Hutchison Dissolve.
The well known firm of McVittle &
Hutchison, real estate dealers and mining brokers, was dissolved last week.
Both of lhe gentlemen will continue in
business in the city, but along different
lines. 'Mr. McVittie's surveying engagements and interests in coal land development has rendered it impossible
for him to give his attention to the details nf the local business, and for that
reason he deemed it hest to withdraw*
from the firm. He has opened an office
iu the Cranbiook hotel block fur personal convenience when iu town. Mr.
Hutchison remains in the old ollice,
where he has already effected some material changes in the general appearance. The Herald desires to say that
the laie firm of McViltie & Hutchison
have doue a power of good iu South
ICast Kootenay. The boys arc hustlers
aud they never get tired of singing the
praises of this district's wonderful wealth
and possibilities. They have spread the
name of Cranhrook throughout Canada,
the States and linglaud, as lhey were
persistent advertisers, and believed that
tlie way lo get a thing was to go after it,
The gentlemen will keep ou hustling in
their respective lines, and Cranbrook
will always get the besl of it at their

The llnmiiii.il Boys' Strike.
Il seems quite evident that the Hamilton brothers have at last been rewarded
for their persistent bird work on Palmer
untnin. Last Monday John Hamilton was iu town with some samples of
lead-copper ore taken at 30 feet of
depth in the shaft ou lhe Betlvllle mineral claim, and six feel from the foot-
wall. The specimens shown by Mr
Hamilton are magnificent ones, and
give every evidence of a rich vein. Oo
ihis properly ta a 250*foot tunnel, aud a
30-foot -shall. The strike was made in a
12 foot drift In the abaft, and four leet of
olid ure is exposed, Ou the footwall
there is three feet of gouge richly mineralized. Ou the face of ihe drift copper
carbonates characterize the showing,
and ou the surface there is a most promising evidence of /.inc. The lead has
beeu cul 13 feet aheady, but cannot yet
tell how wide it is, as there it uo hanging wall yel iu sight. They will keep on
drifting to determine definitely the
width of the lead.
The people of Craubrook are iu hopes
that this will prove a substantial find.
It is within only a few milts of Cranbrook and would prove a great benefit lo
the town. And then, again, the Hamilton boys have been workers since tbey
came iuto the country, and not tatkets.
If every man in ihe hills of Soulh Kast
Kootenay had put forth the same energy
as these gentlemen 1 this district today
would be known as one of the very best
in British Columbia,

B. Gooderham, John A. Finch of
Spokane, James Cronin of Moyie, J. C.

George Sumner of Montreal. It is expected that the same quarterly dividend
of 3 per cent will be continued.
Mr. Cronin will coutinue to act in the
capacity of managing direclor. The
block of 300,000 shares which was pooled
one year ago ha? been taken up by
Messrs Gooderham and Blackttock, who

A Big Besl Closed.
Rossland, November 23.—It is reported that a big deal has just been closed
by Mr. James Breen, representing himself and a New York syndicate, who hss
secured the control of the five million
shares of the Dominion Copper Com-
oany. The consideration te withheld.
The owners of the Dominion Copper
Company were Messrs Mackenxie &
Mann, the railroad contractors, Hon.
George A. Cox, of Toronto; Mr. J. Ross,
a mining man of Spokane: Robert Jaffry
of Toronto: Hugh Sutherland, of Winnipeg; A. J. Roberts, of Spokane and W.
T. Smith, of Greenwood, It is understood that the new parties in control
willator.ee begin active development
and that a smeller will be built lo smelt
the ores. Il is said that some point on
the Kettle river will be selected as a
site for the smelter. The idea seems lo
be to use the ores of tbe Republic camp
with those of lhe Boundary, as tbey
produce a perfect flux. The properties
owned by the Dominion Copper Company consist of the Brooklyn, Stem-
winder, Idaho, Standard and Montezuma, all adjoining the Phoenix.

Nelson Tribune: Buglneef Fowler of
the London & British Columbia Gold-
fields has got things down pretty fine at
the Ymir mine. The company's total
operating expenses in British Columbia
are now less than I3.25 per ion, and as
the recovered values average about $8
per ton it is nol difficult to see there is a
big thing in the Ymir for its shareholders.
Nelson Tribune: The secretary of the
Athabasca gold mine has issued a statement to the shareholders in which he
says that ten stamps operated by the
company yield a profit of £4476 for the
ijuarter ending August 31, which is equal
to 2(3 per cent upon the issued capital of
the compauy, The further statement is
made lhat thc cyanide plant when in
operation will yield an additional profit
of from $400 to I500 per month. This Is

Nelson Economist: In a recent interview at Montreal, Mr. Jay P. Graves,
general manager of the Miner-llraves
Syndicate, te reported as saying that
they aie treating at a prolit ut their
smelter nt Grand Forks, ore ihat has a
value of *ff).i» per t'»n. The present
capacity nl the smeller is (hhi tons a day,
aud this is tn he doubled as soou as new
furnaces can tie built, Up to a couple of
years ago the erroneous idea prevailed
that nothing under $12 or fuore was
worth handling. In those days freight
rules were high and smelter charges excessive. A change has happily come
over the scene, ami to-day quality figures
in lhe calculation as well as quality.
Improved transport and smelling facilities permit of the profitable handling
of ore which heretofore fouud place on
on the waste dump, if touched at all.
It is an important factor in considering
resources nt the country, to know that
fu ore is valuable in commodity, as there
are mountains of such material available. The smellers at present are having mine ore offered than they can
handle, and iu order to keep up wilh
the demand, lhey are increasing their
capacity and adopting the most advanced
method of treatment. Iu ihis particular onr local smeller is well in the fore
ranks and is being put iu order to ac—
commodate all coiners.

relumed to Montreal afler a two and-a
half years tour around the world, concluded an interview iu the Montreal Gazette hy stating.
" Two things iu particular are making
Canada more widely known and more
highly considered the world over, hirst
her purl in the war, which has excited
interest not nnly in England hut in
every part of thu globe; secondly, the
wide-spread advertisements of the C. P,
R. Wherever Mr. Holden went he
tiiuiiil the pamphlets of the great rail
road. Ile fuund them in Russia, in
Norway, iu Turkey. When the P. and
O. steamship reached    Hong   Kong   all
the pusietigers wished if possible to go
nn hy the Empress bonis; for, after experience ot llie ships of many lines and
many nations, Mr. Holden declares
them unsurpassed for comfort, table and
attendance. Even in out-of-the-way
up-country inns in Japan, where guests
are forced to eat and sleep on the floor
and their diet consists of fish in every
possible form, the C. P. R. advertisements were found, Canada's reputation has never stood higher than now."

Lead Trust Melting There.
Salt Luke City, Nov. 17.—Barton Se-
Wi.-ll of New Vork, and Samuel New-
house of Highland Hoy fame, have
joined local parties here in the purchase
ofthe Cactus group of mines in southern
Utah, owned by capitalists in Paris.
The price is not stated, but it is believed
lo be over $100,00, Jacob Bamberger, a
local capitalist having confidential relations with the Guggenhelms, returned
from the east today, and says that while
there has not yet been an amalgamation
between the Guggenbelms and the
American Smelting and Refining company, such a combination will he per-
tecled about the first of the year.
This combination, it is claimed, will
be a direct advantage to producers. On
account ofthe increased demand for sll-
vvr and the restricted production ol lhe
united smelter interests, the belief is
that the white metal will admance to 75
cenls within ninety days and to *f 1 within the next year.

MUs Nancy Armstrong asked tbe
question of her niece, Margery. Iler
tone was sharp and her eyes had au
angry snap iu them.
"lt wus John Markham," answered
Margery, quietly enough, us she look
off her bonnet, but the tone iu whloA
the quesion hud been asked brought
nn extra color to her cheek aud 11
sparkle of resentment to her eyes.
■•I thought so," responded Miss
Nuney, iu her most irritating way.
"Margery Armstrong, I should think
you'd be ashamed of yourself."
"What for?" tusked .Margery. "I'm
not aware that  I've done anything 10
be. ashamed erf."
"Oh, you needn't try to plead innocence," retorted Miss Nnney. "Vou
ought iu be ashamed of golug with tlmt
Murklimu fellow, and you know it."
"1 don't know any such thing," answered Margery, facing her mint
bravely/'JoliiiMarkliainisn respectable
young man. Vou don'l like bim because there used tu be trouble between
llie Maikhauis and the Armstrongs.
That happened before either of us wus
born, and there's no reason why we
should keep up the quarrel. If we see
tit to like each other 1 don't know who's
going lo prevent our doing so."
"I um," answered Miss Nancy, grimly. "Vou needn't think —and .John
Markham needn't think—that a cent of
my property '11 go into the hands of
any one uf that family."
"Oh, you enn do juat us yuu -see lit to
ubout your properly, of course," said
Margery. "1 haven't anything to say
about t-Kat. but If you think anything
you ean do about it will prevent John
and I from liking each olher, you're
quite mistaken. Hi* don't want your
property, but''—with the prettiest lii-
tlc blush Imaginable und a, softening of
ihe voire, ut the Import of the words,
"he does want me."
"Margery Armstrong, I'd like to
know how far this mutter lias gone,"
cried Miss Nancy, in wrathful surprise.
"To judge, by the way you talk one
would suppose it is ull settled between
"It is," answered Margery, with eyes
that never flinched beforo the angry
ones of her aunt. "I promised John tonight, coming home from church, that
I'd marry him as soon us he has a home
for me."
Miss Nancy fairly gasped for breath.
"Vou're 11 fool," she said, as soon as
she could command her voice, "to take
up with that  fellow when you might
marry the squire's nephew!"
"I wouldn't marry the squire's
nephew if he was tin* lust man on
earth," said Margery. "Look at htm
alongside John Markham and I know
that down in your he-ait you can't help
owning that lie's an Insignificant apology for a man. All you can see to admire
in him is his money, I'm sure, und if he
had a thousand times more than he has
I'd have just as iiim-li contempt fur him
us I have now."
"Vou may see the day wlieu you'll
wish you liud some of his money," said
Miss Nancy. "Wait till you're John
Murkhnm's wife and poor as poverty
and things 'II look different to you. Of
course he thinks und you think that I'll
change my mind when I llnd oul that
I can't prevent your marrying him.
But you were never more mistaken In
your life. Marry that fellow and I'll
see thut not a penny of mine goes to
"Pleoae yourself about lhat,"
answered Margery. "We don't want
yonr money. We're both strong and
wilting to work and we'll get along.
Don't worry about thut."
"That sounds well, but you'll sing a
different tune by and by," said Miss
Nancy, "Just remember what I tell
"All right, I will." replied Margery,
and then nhv went up to her room, not
to think about wlmt her annl had said,
hut about the things she had talked of
with 'her lover, qts they walked home
from church together.
Miss Nancy sat in the kitchen and
nursed her wralih,
"Just to think tlmt she defies me!"
Rhe said lo herself. "Jf she'd imurv
Squire Brand's nqphew she'd be the
wealthiest woman In town, for she'd
get all I 'have and her husband 'II get
all the squire has. It's a ahame- a
downright tfhninel- that she can't be
mnde to behave-sensibly. But then,
she's an Armstrong and Ihey were always terribly set in their wny. She
lakes it   from our side of thc family.
But that doesn't make it nny easier to
bear with her foolishness. I'd got my
heart set on 'lier marrying thc squire's
nephew and I hate to give it, up. But
1 suppose I'll have to. for 1 know slie

won't listen to reason. But maybe,
when she tells that young Markiiain
what I said ubout the properly he'll
think twice before he decides to marry
a girl without anything." But Miss
Nancy didn't got much comfort from
that, for down deep In her heart she
didn't believe that John Markham was
that kind of a mun. She had often said
to herself that "If he wasn't 11 Markham
he'd be a pretty nice soil nlu fellow."
lt seemed to have been tacitly agreed
on between Margery and her aunt tlmt
nothing fiirtlhor was to he snid between

hml such a wide difference of opinion.

tue day was u very warm one she sat
down on lhe platform in lhe shade of
some large boxes of freight thut had
been unloaded there, thinking it more
comfortable there than io the stuffy little woUing-TOom.
Pretty soon -she heard steps on the
platform and presently voices from Hie
other side of the pile of boxes reached
her ears.
"How is your matrimonial project
getting nlong?" was asked b\ one of
the unseen parties. And a voice which
Miss .Nancy recognized as belonging to
the squire's nephew answered:
"It semns to hung lire, jm-st at present.. The ta.i Is, Hhe girt'* got another
string to her bow and the chances would
be against me If ii wusn'l for the fact
that her a not favors my suit, because
Hhe think* I'm goingrto get Uncle Amos'
money, and she'd like to unite the two
properties. So Pm rather sweeter mi
the auni jusi al present than I umon
the girl. If 1 get ihe girl at nil it must
be through tiheold lady *<s Influence,you
see. The girl's a little daisy, but lhe
aunt's —welli slie isn't a daisy, yuu cfln
he sure of that! It's a question if having her in the family wouldn't he paying a dear price for all her property,
but you see there's a chance of being
able ito shake her off after a little. 1
happen to know that a new railroad's1
going through this place and the company will have to buy 11 piece of land
she owns, find Ihis land nhe intends lo
give to the girl as u wedding present.
Now, jusi as soon na the road Is put
through-arid it's sure to come—this
land will be worth more limn nil the
rest of the old lady's property. If the
girl gets a deed of it and I gel the girl
1 can sell it to Uie railroad company and
muke a good big sum of money out of
It and we'll be Independent of.theanntj
and when that happens, If It ever does,
I'll tell her to look out for hei* affairs
and I'll look oui for mine. I'm looking
out now lhat she don't find out uhout
the new roll road scheme. 1 want to
inakt* sure of thc girl and the land before I lireak the news lu her."
Miss Nancy listened with ears and
eyes  very  wide  op-en.
"Ves, when it happens, if it ever does."
she chuckled. "I don't believe you'll
ever get the chance you're looking for,
my smart young man! ] don't suppose
I um a daisy—I never thought 1 was!
—hut 1 rather guess I'm n mutch fur
you, since I know whut I do. 1 don'l

Miss Nancy gol ulward ii without being seen by the young men.
Thul evening, when she came home,
ns luck would have It, she met lhe
squire's nephew at the station,
"If you're going homo yon might walk
along with me and help carry some of
ray bundles," she said, in her very fi
out manner. "I'm just about tired out.
I've been seeing to a good ileal of busi
uess to-day. I've had a deed made oil I
giving Margery the south 40 acres of
the farm, aud Pvc been pricingenrpeta

it's going to cost to set. up a   young
couple In housekeeping, Ot course they
won't need the things right away, but
1 thoughl I'd get some idea of what the
expense would be."
"They—who do you mean?" asked
the young mun, in bewilderment,
"Why, Margery and Mr. Markham.of
course," answered Miss Nancy. "Who
else should I mean?"
"You don't mean to say you're going
to let your niece marry that fellow!"
cried the squire's nephew, in surprise
ami consternation.
"Why. certainly," replied Miss Nancy,
us if she had never had uny other idea.
"He's a nice young man. He's got brains,
nud when he gels Margery he'll get
money, for the new niilroiid's going
to make the hind I've deeded her worth
a snug liltle  fortune."
"I'd like to know how you kncwnhoul

young man,
"Oh, I keep posted on suoh mntters,"
said Miss Nancy, looking very wise,
"But here weareat my gate. Thank you
for bringing ray bundles. Won't you
enme in?"
"No, not to-night." was the gruff reply, and Miss Nain'.v chuckled as the
young man went his way.
"I guess I've got about even with
yon." she said, nodding her head after
Ills retreating figure.  "I guess he was
about as much surprised as Margery'll
Her niece had seen her and camo out

"Margery. I've got something to tell
you," said Miss Nuney. anxious to have
din* matter ttlaposctl of, "Pvetl gin it
nil over, and I don't know but you're
right about John Markham, It is foolish to lei an old grudge stand in lhc
wny of youug folks' happiness.     I've

"Why, Aunt Natn-.v!" cried Margery,
looking nt her 11s if she felt sure she
had gone crazy. "I thoughl you'd never
consent  to our marriage?"
"Folks change thoir minds sometimes." said Miss Nnney. "There!

A friend down east writes nnd wants
to km.w why I don't become n banker, u
capitalist, n landlord or somcthlug else
wheu* money is easily mnde. lie says I
iim cut out fm* jusi Hueh n job.
"Tbut noble nose of yours, that chlu
aud thnt forehead ns portrayed in your
pictures belong to a mun who Bhould
hava monoy,"
1 agree with the gentleman. I should
huve money—but because 1 should, it is
no simi Hint I Imve. Anyhow, ibis money
question Is awfully depressing. The more
1 think of It lho worse ii seems. Why, It's
no trouble ni all for mo to coujuro tip
moneyed ghosts- I'm* lustauce In Ho*
shape or bills from lhe docior, tlio blcyclu
mnn. iln> clothier, (he milkmaid, the ■
the, oh, hundreds of others, to say nothing of the benevolent fellowB who havo
loaned me VV and .Vs from timo to timo,
"Tin* Shy Uttlllt."    Of
"Tlu* Itunk uf Shy." Or
"Mr. Shy, Banker."
Wouldn't   nny  ouo of lhe thi-i*e signs
look   well   ovei-  II   |)|g  double  door  to   a
banking Institution',/ On a granlle front,
17 slory, fireproof strneturo? That's
what I mn coming to. The fact of the
mallei' is thai litemturo does not pay uh
well as il did In llie dnys of sonic fellows
you read nbout in history uml newspapers.
lu my mind there's nothing like being
n hanker or n landlord or something as
easy, from what I enn learn ull one has
to do i.s to buy property. If the returns
im> Invested in just the right wny you
cuu buy moro property, and so on nud so
OU  llllil  so ou.
Then the fust thing you know you have
n big bauk nccount, uml with u big Imnk
account you can Btnrt anything you desire. You enn build railroads or do most
anything to make more money.
1 have been advised that the most difficult thing ubout the whole matter Is to
get the start. Unless one makes a start
tbeie can be no finish.
There nre several ways of making n
stmt. One is to save from your child-
hood days right along through rapidly up-
pronehlug nnd disappearing years. Thai
seems to be n very successful way. Tlu
trouble is that one yets iu the habit ol
saving, nml when it comes to spending
one will hesltnto ns much as if a toolb
were to be extracted.
1 will not condescend to countenance
this method, lu tho lirst place, my childhood days have passed. Then again I da
not net onough to make saving worth the
while. By ibo time corn plasters are purchased for Mrs. Shy, the grocers' bills are
paid nud tlie shoe man stood off anothei
month I haven't onough loft to—to—to
use even ns a pocket piece.
There's another way. That Is to rob the
children's bank. Huh I I'm ufraid it
wouldn't do much good to go through the
bunk owned by tbe Shy lets, As 1 remember, it was on tho 7th of the month that
the last haul was mnde out of the little
receptacle. So that's another plan punctured.
But 1 have It! Many a girl With wads
and wads uf money.   Tie up to a lifelong
< ipnnion who bas money iu the bank,
iu her reticule, hi her own name and in
lier slocking.
I might be able to accomplish thla feat
If it were not for a certain record In a
certain book in n certain town. That record was mude mnny years ngo,  'Twas n
plain marriage license. (Thai
represents u long nnd continued sich.)
When I tirst spoko to the other person interested about getting a license, I did nol
think thnt money ever would count. ■—
  (Another sigh.) So that scheme is
out of the question.
Ferhnps the best, easiest and most comfortable wny to become n banker, capitalist Or landlord is to be reared in the lap
of wealth. Simply paddle in luxury. Hovel in raisins nml silver spoons. Have a
pa with so mnch richness tbnt If you
wnnt a 10 coul shine you can pay a quarter for it. Grow up with nothing but
monoy around you, Tbon, when you're
old enough to become n rcspectnblo looking capitalist* embark in ibo business on
your own accoual and your dad's credit.
Without doubt tlint's the best wny. But
all of us can'l do It. Somehow n usually
kind Providence did nol direct us Into the
proper chntmels,

t 'nder such ei ten m sin noes how conld

What did It mean.   What iiivlitu.ou
did she acci'pt ami why should Ids letter make her very happy?   Quito tho
reverse, he had supposed.   It sounded
like some mystery of romance from her
versa tlte pen, hut it was no Jesting
matter he reflected, remembering the
concert and his anxiety of mind cou
corning bis answer from Miss Whitney
Just then. In bis reflection, the door
was Hung open and a messenger hov
sang out: "Mr. IIobbs! Very Important
No answer." And depositing u puck
age banded John his book for signature, John recognized (lie handwriting
of tbe address and hastily tore It open.
A large bunch of violets met bis nsiou
islieil gaze and a letter, which read as
Mr. llohhs:

hy Enme mistake was sent to mc. Aa to iny ntyle.

Poor John read It with sinking heart,
too utterly miserable to express tlw
surprise It merited. Another riddle to
read, ho thought. Was the whole world
turning topsy lurvy and with It Ids
powers of comprehension? First, a
letter of acceptance for an invitation
which lie had not given, nnd now ibis
withering refusal and tbe return of
bis poor, despised violets. Well, good-
by lo bis dreams of love and future
bliss and tho castles he*haii built in
Ids vain ambit Ion. Tlio disappointment lie would hear so bravely no one
would suspect its existence. But bow
explain to Miss Pavenport her mistake, and, picking up hor letter, he
carefully reread it. Iler quotation of
tbe word "accept" wns a bit strange
lis blindness suggested bis own use of
the word. What If he bad made a mistake In the letters and Inclosed them In
the wrong envelopes? In that case he
could understand all but his own asinine stupidity. Was ever man lu such
a box before, engaged by letter to a
girl bo did not love and refused liy the
womnn bo did love aud in a way lhat
lefl uo chance for explanation that be
could sec. Perhaps later he might Had
u way to enlighten Mabello as to mat-
tors, but bow to explain to Miss Davenport without cruelly wounding her
pride and making matters worse? Of
course be must call tonight aud take
her to tbo concert, trusting for some
chance to straighten out tliis tnuglc.
John IIobbs never forgot thnt evening, ami bow be avoided actually committing himself by asking that question he presumed be was expected to
t*.t, bat in spite of bis uncomfortable
pOUltloU ami unenviable frame of mind
he found himself enjoying the music,
aud could not but notice Ids companion's attractlvo face and charm of
manner, and thai ber well bred composure was enhanced by a quiet mod-
csty and seriousness of manner k
which he bad been blind before.
Somehow John found himself saying
ho would call on Sunday evening,
which bo did, and really enjoyed Uie
companionship of these two relined
women. This call wus repealed several times during lhe following iuon»i,
and slill John had not asked tlte question, but ou the contrary had begun
to wonder why be had not before noticed  the many   attractive   qualities
Miss Davenport possessed. As no
word of explanation had passed between hlm aud .Mabclle Whitney, it
was useless to anticipate any hope in
this direction.
As   for   Mildred   Davenport   he   bad
grown to admire the many beautiful
qualities of her womanly sweetness.
As a daughter she wus devoted ami
thoughtful, ami then the thought grew
iu his mlml, would slie not make an Ideal
wife to I he man who should bcforiunute
enough tu wlu her? Had be really any
chance, be asked himself, a dozen
times n dav, and one uight soon after
ho quietly lold Mildred tbe whole
Btory, saying, "And now that my mistake litis been tbe menus of my iiml-
ing out what real love is ami should
be, will yon, knowing all the slory of
my stupid blunder nnd hnppy awaken*
Ing to a belter, truer affection, aeeepi
a devotion which I will prove by mj
wholo llfi' Is yours and yours only';"
and Mildred's acceptance was bIv«o
nud not Implied.

tbe knowledge of llie mining Investois

Canada, something ol llle resources i.f
Southern British Columbia, and the development which has been going on during lhe past two or three years In the
mines, and the erection ut large smelt
ers, concentrating and mining plants,
coveting the same period. Tbe result of
the movement was yesterday's meeting.
Uu motion, Mr. J. B, McArthur was
voted to the Chair, W.J. Whiteside secretary of the meeting,
Mr. McArthur explained lhe object of
the meeting, which was lo establish a
chamber of mines for Southern British
Columbia. He stated thut the great
need of all mluiug districts la the iiilio-
dliction of capital iu a huge way, and
tbis was especially su in Southern 11:it—
■ sh Columbia to properly develope tbe
mines, establish smellers, mills ami concentrating plants for tiie treaimetit uud
reduction ui ores, lie said the lime bad
arrived when some central organization
ought to be estab Mailed which would obtain all data in regard (0 the development of the inlues—the installation ol
all mining machinery for the use of the
mines iu all lhe various camps ofthe
district of Southern British Columbia,
and also to ascertain week by week the
shipments of nre from each of the mines
in these camps—their estimated value,
the smellers or mill lo which tbe ore
waa shipped for treatment, and this information should be tabulated hy the
chamber oi mines and cabled to Ihe
financial centers of London, Berlin and
Paris, and also handed tt the associated
and Canadian Press associations for the
newspapers published iu tbe United
States und Canada. Iu this way the
product of lhe mines would Ijp placed
weekly before the investing public as
the result of lhe mining operations in
these camps,
It would further be lhe purpose ot thc
proposed organization lhat by a series ol
letters issued under the authority of the
chamber of mines, to record mouth by
month lhe actual miuing development
going un in these various camp:; the
erection of new sine!ten*■ mills mid
cyanide plants for tlie treaimetit ami reduction ol ores; also Hint the proposed
organisation could be of service 10 newly discovered camps, or samps which
had been neglected in the pusl, by producing such fads lo the transportation
