days last week, Mr. Peters liad jnst re
turned from u trip through West Kootenay ami the Boundary country, and in

Willi ilie management of these mines we
made arrangements for various matters
in connection with the shipping of ore.
At Grand Forks we found the smelter
working and it is in spleudid condition.
The work there has been increased 6oo
tons per dny. We visited tiie Mother
Lode mine uud of this too much iu its
praise cannot be said, as it is iu a most
magnificent condition. There is an im-'
□tense body of ore iu sight ami much
blocked out. In order to have more
room they are now moving their ore to
the bins at the smelter al Greenwood,
The II. C. Copper company has been delayed some in the construction of the
smelter there owing to the lateness of
the arrival ofthe machinery. The smelter should lie iu operation by the end of
November. Its capacity will be 300
tons per day. We visited the site of the
smelter at Boundary Falls and found it
quite a suitable one. I bad advice today
ihat the fust shipment of in icltlnery for
it was sent irom Denver, Col., today,
They should have it completed by llie
end of the year. Tlie smelting capacity,
with this aud other smelters ol the
Boundary, will then be large enough Lo
reduce all the ore that is produced iu
Lhat section. The distance lor hauling
from any of lhe mines will uot exceed
25 miles nnd llie freight rate can not be
a very large factor iu obtaining the precious metal from the ore, ami with the
modern equipments of the smelters,
there should be no reason why even the
lowest grade ore should nol bring a
profit to both the smelter and mine
owner. There are several properties ou
lhe west tork of Kettle river thut are
showing up well, and it is said bv prominent mining men tliat lhey are equal to
llie mires of lhe Phoenix camp. If ihis
is tine ihere will be enough ore to keep
all thcsmelteis running to their fullest
capacity.   Taking Into consideration the
present condition of tlle   mines  of  Kast
Kootenay, Slocan, Rossland and the
Bouudary country, prospects were never
Inighter than at present to make British
Columbia famous as a mining center. I

A Qood Showing.
The ore shipments from Kimberley were nol quite so
large last month, owing to Ihe inability ofthe Sullivan to get
their ore to the railway. Thc North Star Shipments were
about the same as for thc previous month. The total for tlte
month was 2.415 tons.
Thc total shipment from the St. Eugene Consolidated for
thc month of October was 3,007 tons, breaking all previous
records, and distancing for thc month any silver lead mines
in thc Coeur d'Alcncs.
Thc lumber shipments for thc month of October fell off
slightly, owing to one of the mills being shut down for repairs.
Thc total was 4,3 cars.

Tbe editor of The Ils-rnld is hi receipt
of -it formidable looking blank from the
government office, the sending of which
seems lo be a joke, considering the fuet
that It hns heen forwarded to the publisher of a weekly paper in tbe Kootenays, They ask for returns on salary,
rents, dividends, slocks, bonds, interest
on notes und investments, securities, etc
The form also askS for value of ships,
steamers, etc., owned by the recipient,
book accounts, debts due ns, cash in
hand, und other questions of n similar
nnture. The idea of a country newspaper publisher receiving a document
like lhat, causes US to smile a smile that
is childlike ami bland. They must imagine that we are a bloated trust magnate d iwdllng at the shrine of Monopoly, inhaling tbe perfumes of luxurious
bowers nud Idly clipping coupons lo
ameliorate ilu* ennui of existence.
As to salary, we have not drawn oue
for years; ns io rents, those in our
clothes are most cousplclous; our dividends on stocks, bonds, etc., can be
easily taken care of. We never drew
any dividends but once, and thai wus ou
$50,000 of hank slock. A dividend of
40 per cent had heen declared, and jnst
as we got our hands on the money we
awoke, mul discovered that the $50,000
nnd lhe dividends were nnugliL but a
dream. The only ships that we have
been Interested Itl weie schooners to

which we paid so much per. As to
cash iu hand, lhat is absolutely foolish.

cash we might hnve in our baud if we
should meet llert Beattie, Jake I*ink,
.Malcolm Mclimess, or any of the rest of
om trustlug mercantile friends, and iu
this instance we use lhe word 'trusting"
advisedly, Asm debts, well we have
plenty, but unfortunately Ihey are on
the wrong side of the ledger. We propose to keep the blank ns a souvenir of

SOME eight or ten yeurs ago John
Mitchell was classed amoug the
many prosperous farmers of Kentucky.
Reverses eame, however, and at, tbe
opening of ray story he was, comparatively speaking, u very poor man. Out
of the wreck he retained a few acres,
whieh, assiduously worked by his own
hands, were his only menus of Btipport.
His wife bud beeu an invalid ever
since Jess, tbeir only child and daughter, left college. Upon her entering tbis
Institution her father paid for the full
course jn advance, fearing, n> he said,
thut* something might hupp-en to deprive Jess of her one great desire—a
college education.
lleiug capable of tilling any position
tliat required sense and qualification,
Jess whs forced to refuse Ihe few which
were offered her because her fu titer
would not leave the "old place" and
move to the city and her mother needed
her constant ut tendance. She tried ber
hand ut story-writ Ing, but the dozen
or more that she sent out with so much
faith iu tbeir availability cume back.
The wealth und poverty of the surrounding country paid homage to Jes*
Mitchell. Whenever there was to be a
gathering of uny kind at Judge Hew-
ling's mansion she would be among the
Invited, And Sully Doak, whose father
was "the all-firedest poorest cuss in
seven states," never thought of asking
"the boys and girls" to come and have a
"time" at. her houso unless Jess had
promised lo be there. Then Sally would
make things lively around ber little
whitewashed home gelling ready for
the occasion. Thc night of the party
would find everything ns sweet nnd
dainty as Sully herself,
Jess would always take her violin
with her, for sbe knew that her musical
gift gav-6 these people genuine pleasure.
She was never happier than when adding to the enjoyment of others.
Now, to he asked to Judge Uewling'S
"meant something," but Jess never felt
the difference, She felt just as much
honored in being a guest ut the Doak
cabin.
Ham Bruce had been keeping* watchful eye on Jess for many 11 day. He
owned one of the finest stock farms in
eastern Kentucky. This did not make
him presumptuous OB far ns Jess was
concerned, for he knew that dollars and
cents cut no figure with her. Sam was
positively ugly to look at. One nf the
"old-tlmcrs" said that he appeared like
"be wuz half made, then furgiit erbottt,
and jis niitimlly slopped under."
This may have caused his timidity In
approaching Jess, but it did not prevent bim from giving lier thul grent
noble heart of his, Hint any true woman,
no matter how beautiful or fascinating
she might be, would be proud to be
queen of.
Were anyone to lell Sam Ihnl Jess
thought of him other than us her next-
door neighbor he would not believe It,
And although she was "uncommon
kind lo him iu his Inst spill of sickness."
Un- folk around about suid nothing but
"ihet Mitchell gal would be kind te almost cnyboily." JeSS "WUZ u-geltill'oii
iuyi*iirs,"uccor.liiigiotheircnlculuiions,
nnd ns she "never licdfl reg'lur bcuiishe

"Oeltin- nn In yars" did mil bother
Jess.   Time only add0(1 lo her beauty.
she had become perfectly ri ncllcd to
her hu ind rum existence nml went
nbout her household duties without 11
tnut mui*. And when, one morning in
the early purl of April, her father was
stricken  with  paralysis while loading
the wngon with the vcgelnhlpsthai he
hnd hunched lhe nigh I before, she, being convinced thai there was no Immediate danger, took his place on the
wagon, drove to the city nnd furnished
his customers. When Sam remonstrated with her nnd begged her to
allow one of his men to take ber father's place, proud nnd independent* lo
the core, she would not listen. Charity
she eould not accept.
Poor Jess. How Sum longed to take
her to his heart nnd home and to comfort those who were denr to her. But
he, loo, was proud and couldn't brook a
refusal, so kept silent.
On her wny lo Ihe cily Jess happened
to think of u Mr. Williams, whom she
had heard her father laud as mi enrly
riser. He was a wealthy land owner
of Houston, Tox., nnd was slopping at
"The Louisville." Kvery morning he
nnd Jess' father would have a chat.
People were wont to say that John
Mitchell could not Speak for Ibe minutes on any subject without chiming
in with Mmy daughter." Of course he
mnde no exception to Mr. Williams.
Jess made for "The Louisville" first,
thinking Ihnt she would beat the
"early bird," for she did feel out of
place In u vegetable wagon, It was hard

to beat Jack WUMams, however, and
when Jess Maw u'portly. handsome fellow pacing up and down in front of the
hoiel she knew that II wus he.
"Paralysis," Juck wus saying, ut the
same lime trying tO pierce through the
heavy veil that hid Jess' tenr-stnlned
face.    "I  trusl   that  it- isn't anything
serious," he continued,   "May 1 go to
see your father?"
"Certainly,"   Jess   answered,   in   u
IriMiililing voice; "I know thnt he will
lie glad lo receive J'OU."
"I will be out ihcrc Sunday, dood
morning."
The balance Of the week Jack was not
to be seen.    He knew thut his presence
embarrassed Jess, so he kepi  aloof.
First, Jack was inclined lo regard Jess
as a "new woman," bin he promptly
chunged his opinion and Ruturdny
morning Ihe portcj; handed hero note,
which lend us follows:
"Miss Mitchell! I have long heen oher-

llfolons devotion at your feet,
"JACKWILLTAMS."
That evening Jess was later Ihnn
usual getting home. Sum, who welched
(on the sly) for hei* every evening, wus
frantic. lie had heard of Jim Bos-
well's return,  Jim wus1 the lender of a
gang of thieves and a sworn enemy of
Sum's. Tbis enmity was lhc continuation of a feud that commenced between both families long before Jim
was born. Sam tried lo make friends
wilh Jim, but Jim said "he'd never rest
until the lust Bruce wns off top of creation."
Sam feared thai -the gnng would
"hold up" Jess, no he walked down to
meet her. Ile hnd not gone very far before he spied four masked men. Ile was
under the impression that, he wns unobserved, so be hid behind a clump of
trees to wait for Jess. Kvery second
seemed an hour to him. At last ho
henrd the sound of a vehicle, but it
came so slowly thnt he fell positive
that it was not hers. Or. great heaven I
("ould il be thut old Cob was coming
home without a driver?
Sam jumped from ambush and run
wildly down ihe road. Jim had recognized Sam from the first, but wailed
to see what he wns up 10 before letting
him know that lie wns around, When
the gnng saw Sam running they started
in hot pursuit, thinking thai he wus trying to gel away from them.
In the mean li 111c Jess had been thinking deeply over the -contents of the
nole she hud received thnt morn ing,
She had come to a decision. She
would marry Juck Williams for her parents' sake. Seeing the lateness of tbe
hour, she gave Cob lhe whip.
"Hall!" shouted one of the gang,
rushing into Ihe street and grubbing
rhe bridle of her horse.
"Whal do you want'.'"Jess asked.
""Money or your life!" came from
Ihe masked desperado in a murderous
hiss.
"You will get neither." Jess
answered. "The little money I have my
disabled! parents need. I am Jess
Mitchell."
On hearing lhe nnme the mnn look his
hands from the bridle and passed aside
without another word. Old Cob seemed
to know thnt his friend wus in danger,
for he started up the rond nl such .1
break-neck rale jess conld hardly hold
him. They hud nol proceeded very far
■when she heard the report of 11 pistol
close by, then n groan nnd her name
called. She slopped, alighted und went
in lhe direction of the shot. She found
poor Snm wounded nlniosl to death and
his enemy bending over him. watching
Willi glee for llie lasl gnsp,
"Sam Itrucc!" Bcrcamcd Jess, "and
you—Jim Boswell—-his murderer!"
"My God! Miss Jess, what is Sam
Bruce to you?"
"Everything, Jim—every thing."
Jess got down upon ber knees nnd
tried to slop the flow of blood with her
handkerchief. Jim knelt beside her;
he put his hand over Sam's heart, looked
closely ut the wound uml said: "He will
not die. Miss Jess." He then whistled
for his partners; he iold ihem to dlvesl
themselves of iheir masks and to see
that Sam was taken home. He himself
went for ihe nearest doctor,
Sam wanted tbe elite nt bis wedding,
Jess did noi object, but she said not one
of her poor friends should be slighted
for the very grentesl of them.The night
of ihe wedding homespun nnd Imported

outside until Ibe ceremony was performed, On entering the room he
wnlk-ft over to Bom and said nloiidi
"Smu Ilruce, you have won fl noble
woman for a wife. I, lo... hm- her, bin

Few bodily afflictions are more terrible tlmn disease ol the heart To
'ive in couutdut dread ami expectation
or death, suddec aud with lust faro*
Wells unspoken, is for most people
more awful to contemplate thau the
most serious liugeriug nlness. The
slightest excitement brings solleriug
aud danger to Bucb people.
For several years Mrs. (Jravel, wife
of P. H. A. Gravel, foreman in Barry's
cigar factory St. John's suburb, t^ne-
beo was such a sufferer but thanks to
Dr. William-' Piuk Pills she is again
in the enjuymeut of good health. Mrs.
Gravel sayB:—
"My geueral health wuh bad for several years, my appetite was poor, anil I
was easily tired, lint it was the fro-
nuuni sharp paius und violent palpitation of my heart which caused me tlie
greutt st alarm. I tried muny medi-
ciueu, mid was treuted by Eevernl doc
tors, bnt lu vain. Finally 1 bcciimu so
poorly tliat 1 was not able to do any
household work, und wus frequently
confined to my bed. At tho suggestion
of one of my friends I decided to try
Dr. Williama' Piuk Pills. Alter taking a tew boxeB I began to guiu new
strength aud rigor. Tho paius in my
heart were less frequent and less
severe, nnd ln every way my health wub
improving. I continued using tho pills
until I had takeu eight boxes, wheu '
had completely recovered my health.
I have galued in flesh; my appetite Ib
good, and I am able to do all my household work without feeling the awful
futiguo I was before subject to. I am
very thankful to Dr. Williams' Piuk
Pills, for they have truly released me
from much suffering, and I hope that
others may be induced to try this wonderful medioiue."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of tbe disease. Tbey

stopped nt a farmhouse to water bis
horse, "15 yenrs nfgo a poor boy enme

"Yes?" queried the fanner, somewhat
surprised,
"You wore kind to him," went on tbe
stranger; "you fed bim, gave him
words of encouragement nml nn old
suit of clothes, put u dollar lu his pocket nnd sent him on his wny rejoicing,
lie told you nt tho timo thnt be never

"1 reckon you are," replied tho farmer.
"lie said that If he prospered he
would see that you never bad occnslon
to regret your kindness to a poor.strug-

I have," said tho strnnger, "and he

"Whnt Is It?" they both asked ex-

Mice und Mntoliee,
An Investigation extending over a period of nearly three mouths was made by
the Inspection department ut a Boston
fire Insurance company in order to determine whether fire run he caused by rata
or mice and matches. Tbe tests were
carried on In a cage made of iron pipe,
covered with galvanlned iron Dotting, in
which a tin box partly flllcd with cotton
waste was placed for a nest. Huts and
mice, singly or several at ft time, were
confined, for longer or shorter periods,
within this cage, In which sulphur
matches, parlor matches and safety
matches were nlso placed. The creatures
were alternately fed nnd allowed to ro
liuugry. During the experiments with
the mice apparently none of tin* motcb-n
were gnawed, but two of the safety
matches were carried hy them into their
nest. Ou thu other huml, the ruts Ignited the sulphur uuitelies by kiidwIiik
thein, which is indisputable evidence tliat
common sulphur matches can be Ignited
by rats.
