Uitlncly End of a Man Well Known li
This District.
Nelson Tribune, Oct. 28: J. Hough-
tou, a miner, hailing from Fort Steele,
committed suicide at tbe Royal hotel
some time Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Houghton registered at
the hotel on Sunday last end was drinking more or less after his arrival. Not
malting hia appearance yesterday morning, one of the employes of the hotel en*
tered hii room and found tbat he had
shot himself througb the temple.
Houghton had been dead several hours
when bis body was found.
It appeared to be a clear case of a determined suicide. From the disposition
ofthe body it was evident that Houghton had covered bis head witb the blankets, and fired tbe shot under them. As
tbe revolver with which he took his life
was firmly clutched in his hand when
tbe body was found it te evident thnt
death was Instantaneous.
Houghton was formerly emtiloyed as
superintendent of Ihe Sullivan mine
near Kimberley, in Kast Kootenay,
which is being operated by a Spokane
company. Some six weeks ago Houghton was relieved from bis position ou account, it la said, of his intemperance.
The only papers on the body waa a Rank
of Montreal deposit book, which showed
a credit balance of close upon $900.
The Bonieri Ferry Road.
The Bonners Ferry (Idaho) correspondent writes under date of October 25
that tracklaying and surfacing is now
moving rapidly ahead on the Kootenay
Valley railway. The road will be ready
to torn over (0 the operating department
by about November 15. A train service
will be established between Bonners
Ferry and Port Hill it a few days, after
which the steamer Alberta will connect
with the trains at I'ort Hill-instead of
Bonners Ferry until the road ia completed. The management of the road
now receives freight for Port Hill and
way points. Bonners Ferry will have
telegraphic communication with Port
Hill in about ten days. Whether trains
will connect with the Great Northern or
run into Spokane, when a regular service on the Kootenay Valley railroad is
established, ia still an open question,

Her Name and Fame Abroad h
Attracting the Attention
of Capta lists.
The British Columbia Review, of
London, Kng., has the following article
regarding Craubrook as a smelling
point and commercial center:
The completion of the Crows Meat
railway last year of such a recent date
that its importance to lhe mining Industry of British Columbia is not sufficiently realized. Passing, as this line does,
from Lethbridge, on the Canadiun Pacific railway, through the Crows Nest
Pass, across South Kast Kootenay by
Cranbrook, and past the Moyie Lake
and mines to the Kootenny lnke, where
it connects wiih the Columbia & Koote-
nay railway, it opens up the vast coal
fields in the Crows Nest Pass, nnd also
the rich mining district around Craubrook, and it enables the splendid fuel
from the coal fields to find markets in
almost every direction. The coke from
these mines is unrivalled, Is practically
unlimited, aud, frou its high quality,
will command a market for many
hundreds of miles.
This must necessarily^ have a very beneficial effect upon the mining Industry
of Kootenay—especially of South Bast
Kootenay—for tbe proximity of the
coal mines, the excellent fluxes, und
great variety of ores thcte, will enable
smelting and refining to he carried on nt
a minimum of cost. The locality which
seems to have been designed by nature
and present circumstances as n smelting
and refining center, vis the town of Cran
brook—the headquatters ofthe Canadian
Pacific railway lu Soulh Fast Kooletmy.
What is required for a smelting nud refining center ia easy access to gootl fuel
and a great variety of ores, nlso cheap
and good fluxes lu the neighborhood, if
possible an ample supply of water or
Cranbrook ia only 60-miles by rail
from the coal fields, and within a radius
pf 25 miles from various points round
tbe compass we find the following
groups of mines—the North Star group,
the Sullivan group, the St. Marys river
group, the Perry creek group, the Palmers Bar group, the St. Eugcuc group,
the Lake Shore group, the Sand creek
group, tbe Bull river group, the Dibble
group, the Wild Horse creek group, the
Tracey creek group, aud the Wasn
group, while higher up the vulley, to
which a railway is already projected
from Cranbrook, we find the Windermere group, the Dutch creek group,
the Toby creek and ilorsethief creek
From these numerous mines ores of
argentiferous galena, copper, gold and
silver are procurable iu large quantities.
Within five miles of Crnnbrook there
are excellent (luxes of limestone and
irou. From a creek running through
Cranbrook and from a very lurge spring
on Ihe east aide of the town a supply of
6,0.0,000 gallons of water per day hi- the
driest season can be obtained, aud by
utilizing the St. Marys river, seven miles
distant, electric energy up to 30-00 horse
power can be obtained for smelling nnd
refining purposes. By establishing coke
ovens at Cranbrook and utilizing the
bye products, the gas for power and the
tar for creosotiug railway ties, etc., etc.,
Ibe best of coke Jcould be obtained there
for from $4 to $i 50 per ton. A branch
railway is now being constructed to the
Nortb Star and Sullivan groups of mines
18 miles distant, while the St, Eugene
and Lake Shore mines are directly on
the Crows Nest railway, and only 22
miles distant fiom,Cranbruok. As development takes place, and when a
smelter and refinery is erecte', other
groups of mines will connect with the
main line by aerial or ordinmy tramways, The town Is most beautifully situated on a plain surrounded hy low, rolling hills, carrying excellent pasture and
also timber. .The country for many
miles along the valley Is well adapted
for agriculture, dairy farming nud fruit
growing, aud there will .always be a
ready market at the neighboring mines.
It should also be a good site for a beet
sugar manufactory, as from experiments
tried in various parts of British Columbia
in sugar beet growing, Cranbrook coun-s
out at the top of the list, thc heels gl<
lug the unusual amount of 16 per cent 1
sugar. Tbe growth of towns on the introduction of a railway in a new country
Is something marvelous. At the commencement of last year, when the railway was commenced, there were only n
few farm buildings at Cranbrook, while
now there are over a hundred good
houses, six large hotels, four churches, a
brancb of the Canadian Bauk ot Commerce, two sawmills, and other houses
being rapidly erected. Lois 25 feet by
ia2 feet in the main street have sold for
as much as $1000, while last year they
might have been purchased for ^60,
The lown boasts of an excellent newspaper, the "Craubrook Herald." An
Interesting disci very has been made in
the immediate vicinity of lhe town, of a
very fine porcelain clay, and il is within
thc range of probability that lime may
see a large porcelain factory iu operation there. In another qui.iter of the
town is a large biick yard, which turns
out eicelleul bricks.   All this develop*
int'iit bus occurred—like lhe wave of a
macic wand—■through the introduction
ol the railway, and Ihere is little doubt
that Cranbrook.lls a smelting, refining
and distributing center, has a brilliant
future before it) In conjunction with the
whole of South Hast Kootenny. We
mny add lhat it seems ridiculous nnd a
great wnnt of enterprise that, with
everj natural advantage nnd abundance
of cheap fuel, the ores of the district
should be allowed to drift into the United Slates to bt* smelted and refined
tbere instead of locally.

The Empire.
Charles Estmere bas just returned
from a visit to eastern Canada. He
stopped of at Cranston to visit the Empire mine, which has two shifts at work
since September. Mr, Estmere reports
very favorable progress since the start-
Eng of work, The vein has been crosscut near the west boundary of the claim,
and shows a width of eight feet, three
iuches. A tunnel has been driven ou
Uu* vein along the lootwaM for a distance
of 30 feet. This work is the first to
demonstrate auylbing about the famous
Empire property. Il ibows the trend of
the vein to be about northwest and
southeast, witb a dip of about 50 degrees
to tbe southwest, The footwall is a
shale slate and the hanging wall a meta-
inorphic slate. Two samples taken
from ihe crosscut and the face of the
tuunel gave the following results: Cop-

Copper, to b; silver, 7 ounces; gold, fl.SO
respectively, A crosscut tuunel has
been started to tap the vein nt n depth
of about 70 feet. This tunnel is 20 feet
lonj* aud it is expected lo reach the vein
iu another 20 feet. Mr. Estmere ex-
pressed himself as confident that the
Empire will rank among Ibe heavy producer-- of copper ore in the near future.

Tne Black Bear.
Upon being asked how the Black Bear
was progressing, Mr. Estmere said that
he had noi bad time to investigate the
latent developments but from all appearances the ore in the bottom of the shaft
shows decided improvement in the last
few feet. The shaft is down 60 feet and
work is still being continued. Tbe vein
shows two and one-half feet of ore at
.hat depth, carrying gold, silver and
lead. ''The Black Bear bids fair to become a producer in lhe near future,"
said Mr. Kstmere. He expressed himself as surprised at the growth of Kimberley during his absence. He said,
"lhe largest portion of the grading of
the railroad bas been completed and it
te to l>e hoped that trains will be running between Cranbrook and Kimbe.ley
by the first of January, 1900."
The North Star .-Hine.
J L. Parker, ■-.uperinteudent of lhe
North Star mine, was in Rossland this
week. While there he was interviewed
by the Miner of that city, and gave out
the following statement:
Thc company has |ust let a contract
for a double roped aerial wire tramway,
which is to be over a distance of 6,000
feet, fo* lhe purpose of facilitating tbe
getting out of lhe ore. Another improv*
ment under contemplation Is theputtiug
in of a water power plant. The power is
in a stream about S,to*j feel from the
mine, and there is about 170 horse power, which is ample for present requirement. The plan is to put in a water
wheel and generate tbe power, and to
transmit it to the places where it is to
be used by means of wire. The North
Slar mine is ready Is ship as soon as Ihe
railway company is ready to lake Uie
are away The North Slar is owned
principally by MacKeti/.ie 8t Mann,   ami
is one of lb*) great mines of the Kooie-
nays. There is over 4O1OCO tons of ore
blocked out in the slopes aud, as it is of
high grade, it is estimated that there is
ore in sight lo lhe value of •Ji,5<jOup'<jo
A nearby property is the Sullivan, which
is being operatetl by Colonel Riding, and
others of the old Le Roi Mining compauy, and, lhe management seems to
think with development lhat they will
have a miuing property of more than
ordinary merit. Mr. Parker says theie
is considerable talk concerning the Ta/
Roll group, which was recently
purchased by Messrs Saucier, Ouiraette
and others of this city, and which tl ey
have incorporated. Mr. Parker thinks
that Eaat Kootenay is certain to make a
great mining country.

She went into lhe kitchen, and the
flrst thing Betty had to say was that tin*
neighbors on both sides were going to
take one or two children for a mouth
from the relief committee, and Betty
thought it was so nice lo huve llie dur-
Tin'a running around to keep u body
irom getting lonesome.
Then, worst of all, In the afternoon
Betty required a certain muslin hag for
■training jelly, and it could not be
found, strange to say. in that methodical household. Miss Huth had logo un
to the garret for u piece out of which
to make auolher bug. And ao she
chanced to open a certain trunk in Uk
garret, by lhe side of whieh she sal
dowu and sighed.
For there, preserved in camphor ami
lavender, through so many years, were
the garments belonging to the being
Miss Ruth hail mosl loved on earth, the
little sister who died wlieu she was only
ten years old, nnd was buried down
there in the old graveyard, under tin
willow trees.
It seemed ns if, while she sal on til*
floor In the garret, she could set* Tilly':
blue eyes looking up Into her face, and
hear Tilly's tender voice saying
1er, remember tbe time when we played
together, and do it for my sake." Miss
limine got her muslin, shut the trunk
und marched downstairs to the kitchen
"Botty," said she. "do you think
W8 ought lo take one of those children?"
"Law, yes, Miss Ruth! Why don't
ye?" suld Hetty, her plain face lighting.
"nut children ure nuisances, Hetty.'
"Yes, Miss Ituth, but they're kind O
comfortin' after all."
"Well, make your jelly, Betty, Mind
and don't let it burn."
Xext morning Miss Ruth walked di
Hberately into tho office ofthe, ladle
relief committee.
"I'll take one!" she aaid, sternly.
"All right, Miss Hanklna. put dowu
one for Miss Paul," Bald mc imly Hi
"Ask her if she wishes n boy or girl,"
snid Miss Muskina, an she wrote the
"A girl," replied Miss Ruth, promptly.
"Lord knows what I'll do with her,

The ladies exchanged gliinceH, which

said Miss Masklna.
"Very well." Miss (tuth turned round
and walked out, "They Ihlnk I'll eat
the child!" she muttered lo herself,
"But I won't!"
On Tuesday morning the people wbo
hud promised to .take children were a I

Miss Huth, with ticket-No, 4-t
"Pome on!" said Miss Huth, leading
the way to ber carriage. She had driven
herself to Ihe depot, simply because she
would not be seen In the. village with
the child following her. Xot yet, nt

"Ob, no. ma'am."
"Then here is a siinbonnet; you may

"I guess 1 would like il!" said Tilly,
sweetly.   "I never tried it."
"Good Lord! Is there no grass iu New

"Yes'm. Lots of ii in the parks. But
the police don't 'low you to step on it."
"Well, you cun step on it here. Uoont

Miss Rutll gave Tilly ll little bedroom
next to her own und undressed her with
her own hands,
"Where's your gown, child'-"' she
"I hain't got no gown," replied Tilly
"What do you sleep In?"
"This" was a thin uud-erwuist, which,
with a small petticoat, completed tht*
chilli's  underwear.
"Well!" Miss Hm lid id n't know whut

Tilly hnd been Ihere two weeks,
when one night Ihere was n thunderstorm, ond Miss Hull) wus awakened by
a cull at her bedside.
"Aunt Ruthie! .Aunt Ruthlcl" She
hnd taught Tilly to call her that, and
the child's voire roused her.
"Well, whut is il?" she asked.
"I'm afraid of the thunder, Aunt
Ruthie,   May I come In your bed'?"
The little figure crept lu and cuddled
up close to Miss Ruth, the siiiull arms
wound round ber, and she felt lhe warm
breath ou her check. And somehow
Miss Huth remembered Deity's words:
"Children is kind' o' comfortin' nfter
all," nnd felt, a strange scnsntlon of
wiirmlli nl her lonely henrt.
Afler awhile the mouth wns up,and
ihe Indies notified those who had children to hnve Ihem ut the depot ready

Mrs. Manly and Miss Raskins called
on Miss Ruth.
"Am I obliged lo lei lier go?" asked
Miss Rnlli.
"Unless yon keep her ut your own

"Well, I wnnl to keep her."
"How long, Miss hi ul?"
"Always. She has grown into my Old

"Yes. it is.   I want her for good."
"We enn get her for you, no doubt.

"Tilly is her own rewnrd," said Ruth.
And so the child stayed to he the

cashier, "It has an awfully funny of-
foul on the allium!. Makes it sleepy."
He bud a. toothpick iu his hand, and,
ilTeriug it to the cashier, snid: "Take
this und tickle ihe cut there with It,"
The cashier took the little splinter of
wood and passed "the end of it over thc
nose of the drowsy Angora. The next
instant pusa emitted a scream of
anguish and leaped many feet into the
air. With tail erect she clambered Up
the wnll, jumped over the bar, overturned n number of glasses and bottles

"Because his father's nnme Is John-

"But his mother's isn't."
"When a man murt-les a woman, tho
woman changes her nnme and takes the

That llio niuny inlslinps Which bcf<.*l
thut architectural tnunstroslly uu
Pennsylvania avenue known us the
new city ptjstutflce during the many
yeurs It waa in process of construction
wus due to u "hoodoo" In freely admitted by a large number of Washington
citizens, whu watched the building rise,
witb frequent Interruptions, from its
foundations, No other public structure ever eroded iu Washington bus
caused tbo government so much trouble, aud even uuw, although partially
occupied, ultcrntious uud changes remain tu be made.
Columns have been written In tbe
newspapers by Indignant citizens calling attention to defects lu tbo big stone
building and condemuiug tbo structure
generally. A congressional committee
was appointed at the last session to
Investigate the many alleged shortcomings of the building, and altogether the
new city postotlice bas been a cnuse
for complaint ever since it rose above
the ilrst story several years ago.
Believers lu such things have all
along asserted with solemn conviction
that tbe building was "hoodooed."
Their position bus at Inst been sustained, for the "hoodoo" has been
found, and lt will remain os long as
tbo building stands. It Is not oue of
those mysterious "hoodoos" Invisible
to the human eye, but, on tbe contrary,
it may be seen at auy hour of the day
or night by any one who cares to walk
to the south end of the west corridor
on the flrst floor. There, distinctly outlined in the marble of tho wall, Is the
perfect figure of a huge black cat, with
tall curled around its haunches, ears
stiff and erect. Faint lines trace tbe
whiskers from each side of the Jaws.
It Is uot necessary to search the surface of the marble for the cat. because
the figure Is easily distinguishable several yards awny from the wall. A
painter could scarcely have' made It
plainer or more lifelike with his
brushes and colors.
The figure is due to the peculiar vetoing in the marble, and is tbe only one
which bas so far been found in the
building. Figures, fuces and objects
in marble are not uncommon, nnd
there nre a number of tlue specimens
iu the geological section of the National museum. None of them, howover,
compares with the slab In thc post-
office in realism nud close approach to
nature. Oue of the postoffice watchmen expressed the opinion the other
day that until the slab containing the
cat Is removed the "hoodoo" will continue to hang over the building.—

At flenon three fishermen In a small

with Incredible strength tuok It In his

but, rousing Itself a terrible battle ensued In the bout The shark seized tho
arm of one of the men and tho others
beat It with their ours, trying to free
their companion. Suddenly tbe shark
let go and bit Its first captor Id the

AlumtMlMtii Clock Itande.
"Oue of the finest and lightest materials that arc now largely used for
making clock hands is aluminium,"
suid u leading clock manufacturer recently. "Until recently the pointers
of big clocks, when uot mnde of wood,
were composed of two thin strips of
copper, which were capped or hollowed and then brought together, edge to
edge, with the rounded sides out, thus
giving strength as well as lightness.
The aluminium clock pointers are
mnde Just Iu the same way as the
copper ones, but tbey possess tbo merit of being twice as light aud are far
easier to balance.
"It Isn't unusual on largo clocks to
see projecting from tbe base of the
long pointer and In line with It a rod
with a ball at the end, this rod being perhaps a third os long as the big
pointer. This rod and ball act as a
counterweight for the big pointer,
which, without a counterweight, would
In Its movement around the dial bear
unevenly upon the arbor or shaft which
carries It. On great clocks and often
on big timepieces Indoors this counterpoise Is placed inside the dial out of
sight on the arbor.
"Tbe heavier tho pointer the greater
the weight required In the counter
poise; the greater the weight the more
friction on tbe arbor, and the more
friction the greater the power required to drive tbe clock. By tbe use of
aluminium pointers these drawbacks
are reduced to a minimum."-—Washington Star.
