in Cranbrook a first-class field for the

No. 2—Alex McDermot.
This Is a young Irishman, about 40
years old (in experience); an expert
keeper of books and of any other old
thing worth keeping; about 5 ft. Sin.,
about 165 pounds in his shoes; in also an
athlete aud 1 whirlwind with Indian
club ; is alio a great kicker—when there
is a foot-hall around; a perfect Apollo in
form with warm-colored hair; wears old-
gold shoes with tooth-pick toes; of a
religious turn of mind, abstemious in hia
habits (some of them); he swears ouly
hyjoe Martiu. A large, stout brunette,
with a targe bank-roll, in need of a trusty
financier, could corral Alex, and put her

cautiously and not arouse his suspicions
before she gets bim uuder control.

A tall, slender young  Wehhttiiui, fair
hair and blue eyes; inclined to the Apol-
linarius in form; a good dresser and of a
disposition of the coojugular vein; keeps
a first-class hotel, and tbe gir] that
catches him will have plenty to eat and
nothing else to do bnt look ou the bright
side of life nnd feel happy; he is fond of
children and would make a devoted husband. The girl who catches him will
have to bt* a good looker and a good
dresser, money not necessary.

Here is 11 cracker-jtck. The young
Lilly wbo gets him will have a soft snap;
he's about 5 fl. 7; stout, but not corpu
lent; fair, blue eyes, and thin light hair;
is a direct descendant of the Fled Piper
of Hamlin, from whence his name is derived; always wean a smile, the top Bide
ol which is fen-red in with a light, but
strong mustache: ia a decorator with a
handsome income, real estate and mine;*;
he works, not because he has to, but lie-
cause he was brought up that way; is
jolly and enjoys a good joke, except
when it is on him, aud then he enjoys it
more; the girt that gets him will have a
"puddin* "; he'll see that Bhe don't have
to do a thing—not even talk; Fred won't
ask a girl to bring lucre with her, and a
blonde, brunette, or betwixt or between,
with red, white or black hair, if it ia a
crop of her own raising, can lead him a
blushing, but not unwilling, victim to the
altar. The lady must, however, be an
honest and consistent member of some
church—say Scotch Presbyterian.

son Paul; rather youthful, maybe, to wed,
but if she had plenty of capital Paul
certainly could take care of a wife right

blue, hair between dark and light, a
good looker, good dresser, bike racer,
ball player, telephone line architect and
many other accomplishments; of medium size, with a future luring him on in
life; a young lady of the brunette type
might entice Paul iuto Hymen's fold,
but she might have to stand guard over
it afterward.

The association had prepared an interesting program of sports for the little ladies and gentB to contest in, with small
prizes In money for the contestants who

were out hi full force, and it is unnecessary to say that lhey enjoyed themselves
immensely. "Hutch," F.uie Small and

Output of Ore Here Figured in
Tons and Carloads, Not Pounds
The mineral region near Kimberley, 18 mile* -northwest of
Cranbrook, put out In June 130 carloads ol ore, at ao tons to
the car (an underestimate of two tons to the car) making
3600 tons; or In pounds, as estimated In the Slocan district,
5,300,000. The Kaslo district put out In the same month 4,-
573,000 pounds, or 637,000 pounds less than the North Star and
Sullivan mines alone, the latter having been shipping but a
short time.
The St. Eugene In June put out 1800 tons concentrates, or
3,600,000 pounds; added to the 4,573,000 pounds from the
North Star and Sullivan, gives a product for the month of 8,-
173,000 pounds, or nearly double the shipments from Kaslo
{-4.573.woo pounds) during the month of June as reported by
the Kaslo Kootenaian recently. The Kootenaian adds: "Kaslo is the chief town of the Alnsworth district, but many of the
big mines of Slocan also ship through this district."
The Sullivan and St. Eugene are not more than 4-year-old
properties, the North Star but little older.     Is not a district
with this enormous output worthy the attention of Investors?

gospel—but he alnt; good natured, and
like Pieper, don't say much; quiet, but
does a whole lot of thinking, especially
when in the presence of ladies; good
habits, but if be should ever turn loose
would be a "high-roller;" is of a poetical or artistic temperament, and enjoys
the scenery at Moyie lake very much;
Sam wouldn't be hard lo please; a redheaded, freckle-faced, squint-eyed girl
might catch on here, but if she stutters
also, would not vouch for the result.
No: 7-Jlmmie Pitfersoa.
" Pat," everybody calls him; cashier
in a big bank; under 25, rather short aad
stout and always wears a smile of the
extension table order—can be lengthened
to suit the demands of Ihe occasion;
good looker, good dresser, but no dude;
parts his dark hair In the middle, but
don't lay that up against him; his native
language is patios, but he also speaks
English fluently " as she is spoke" In
Cianbrook; of quiet nature, inclined to
be religious, bul strictly speaking is not
so yet; not foud of the ladies, but • dark
girl with fluffy black hair might call
him her own without 1 desperate struggle.

The above are only a few samples or
what commercially speaking, would be
denominated " bargains."   There are a
number of others, however, like "Uncle
Jim" Ryan, Pr. King, Contractor Cameron, Collector of Customs Keay, Engineer Richardson, and a few others tbat
have been on the shelf for some time;
they are good stuff, aa fine aa silk, so
haven't became  shop worn, and come

enough to coma along at the right time,
can have them, but  not at their own

was played by the Whirlwinds and Cyclones, In a small way the cluba were
entitled lo tbe namea they had selected,
and tbe little fellows put up a game that
was proportionately as fast and furious

the Cyclones were shy oue man, and
when one of them was (old ofthefict

"Hub! That's all we need to do them

score of 2 to i, and now they nre claiming tbe championship for South East
Kootenay, and talking uf another exhibition game 111 the near future.
The -Home Team Take Them In Hv a Score
ol 10 to 6.
Last Monday evening tbe home tenrn
played the Iloston Bloomer aggregation,
an organization advertised ns a female
collection of ball-tossert. All but the
catcher of this club, and the flrct baseman, wore bloomers, although four of
them were born to panls, The outfield-
era and the 21I baae were the only females
in lhe game, as was evidenced by the
ploying. The feminine features could
neither bat nor throw tlte ball excepting
the gul at 2d, who could handle and stop
balls fairly well.
The Boston battery and infieldera wete
good players and some of them are probably buck numbers of some of tbi- big
clubs of the country; but good infielders
can not deal with long flies, and that is
where the Bloomers lose their games,
principally, when they do lose them,
A club that has fairly good batters mul
base-runners can beat the Bloomers pretty nearly every lime through this weak
neis. The Bloomer battery is a ver)

swift, lacked Currle'i puzzling curves

Charles l.undberg. a prospector ftom
tbe Sand creek region, was in town Tuesday, and brings quite good newt from
that district.
About four weeks ago Messrs. McBaln
and Bishop discovered a mammoth ledge
about three miles west of Galloway (formerly Iitnpirej station. Sir.ce then Lhey
have stripped it for a distance of 200
feet, and everywhere it (bows an ore
very generously sprinkled with copper
and iron carbonates and sulphides, with
occasional rich specimens of azurite and
malachite. The width cf the ledge ia as
yet unknown—it can only lie determined
by sinking and crosscutting. Assays of
15 per cent copper have been obtained,
while there are specimens which will
run much higher. Mr. Lundberg (who
is not interested in tbe claim) says tbe
samples be bad were average in bis estimation. This being the case the strike
will prove to be one ofthe most important ever made in Hast Kootenay, if the
development will bear out surface indi
cations which point to a large body of
iron and copper sulphides, carrying
some gold and all vet.
A working shaft 5x8 is now being innk
on the claim, which can be easily reached by a wagon road.
These gentlemen have beeu slaying

make n bole of six Inches diameter in

opinion, und I ndvtso bim as n friend to
mnko it good at tbo next opportunity,
particularly an tho Gorman -tuj*u managers, who underrate my merits, very
soldom glvo ono of my works, which bus
not prevented my writing 21 plays, with
t)'2 nets nnd T3'2 scenes. To prevent mistakes allow ino to remark thut not each
of tbe 21 plays continued G2 acts and T_2
scenes, but altogether they boast that
number. But all this docs not belong
here, und I beg pardon for the digression.
If 1 nm not mistaken, I mentioned in the
begiuulng tbut I hud written n play. It
was not n live act tragedy, or a three
act comedy; ob, no, only a modest little
one net piece had ilowed from my pen,
nnd wben I saw what I had done—behold
It was very good. No wonder that 1
quickly decided to deprive tbo world no
longer of tbis enjoyment, nor myself at
tho laurels of fame. I luul the little pluy
neatly copied uud sent it to a theatrical
publisher. At that time 1 bad unt the
sad experience of today. I wns lunocenl
enough to think theatrical publishers and
agents rend tho effusions of unknown
authors; therefore I was not a little surprised to hnvo my [day returned to me
alter nbout four weeks, with a polite
printed letter, in which tbe publisher in*
formed mo that ho bad no use for the
piny, The first duy 1 was very much depressed, the ■second annoyed; finally, on
the third dny, l came to tlio conclusion
ihat "that ass of a publisher" knew nothing about it, packed up my piny ngain
nnd sent it lo nuother.
Tho same result, with the difference
flint the second publisher sent back the
MS. not prepaid, so I called him a
"blockbend," who knew less thnn the
lirst. nnd sent it off to a third.
Hut this one nlso sent it back—this
time registered and not prepaid. I laid
it aside tu silent resignation.
Some time utter chance look me to a
largo lown nnd nuother chance led to my
acquaintance witb a maungcr of n theater, who by chauce was staying there.
As a matter of course I did not neglect
ibis combination of lucky chances. 1
gave him my little play, which 1, by
nuother chance, had by me, nud he promised ine to read it ns soon ns possible.

R. In In an Old-Time Minn, Recently Returned
with Bat) Rcpurls.
Mr. R. Irvine, wbo has mined in many
parts of the western continent, prospected ns well and taken pnrt in a number of
historical stampedes, returned a few duys
since, having went to Cape Nome during
the spring just past.
Mr. Irviu, In bis.talk, conveys the impression of conservatism, and his reports
regarding Cape Nome nnd its alleged
richness, are far from optimistic. In addition to Its lack of large quantities ol
gold, he ia confident that small-pox nud
typhoid fever will rage there this summer, and that many men will suffer both
from want nud disease.
He says tbnt the gold-bearing beach
has beeu greatly over estimated iu extent, and that it is already practically
worked out; Dial it is not much trouble
to mnkc $3 per day with a rocker even
yet, bul that Is little better than nolhing;
tbat both wages nml the cost of supplies

not argue well fur a boom camp, Top

recently discovered and was quite Hell,
is already worked out, ns (be nrea wus
small. All the creeks that hnveaiiytbing
of a showing, were staked last season, aud
there is but very little if anything left fur
lhe new comer.
He snys that the futmo many reveal
rich ledges in lhe mountains back from
the coast, but lhey would have 10 be far
richer than the average gold ledge to pay;
in addition it lakes lime and money to
develop ledge mines of auy kind—a great
deal of both.
in brief, his views are lo tbe end that
Cnpe Nome will prove a greal disappointment to most everyone who 1ms gone
tbere, and that many will lose their lives
in tbe mail rush that hns taken plnre.
He says he noticed one peculiarity
ubout those who have been in tbat far
northwest country for years — ncue of
tbem think of leaving it permanently.
Those who make a "stake" lake a trip
