SI. Marys River.
The immense ledge being prospected
by I). W. Moore ami liis syndicate on
the west fork of the St. Marys river. Is
showiug a very large body of almost
solid copper nre. This fact is of more
importance tlum at first appears. The
ore in that district is nearly all of low-
grade and Lhe proof that there Is abundance of it to be mined will make absolutely certuin the building of a railway
branch immediately, for it is too far to
ship tlie crude ore, so that machinery
for concentrating and possibly a smelting plant will be the solution. There-
suit will be a lnrge mining population
and a great and imporUtit output of
mineral requiring cheap trausportation
Bull River.
R. O. Jennings and his associates,
owning the mineral claim, Old Abe, on
Hull river, have bonded it to William
Caldwell, of Rossland, for a very substantial price, and development work is
now progressing with the business-like
thoroughness that might be expected
from a pruclical operator like Mr. Caldwell, who is superintending the work
bimself. Apparently llie Chickauiou-
stoiie is uot the only shipping mine on
the banks ol Bull river.
Adjoining the Old Abe, Dave Griffith
the well known ohl timer of Wild Horse,
has a group of claims showing souie
very rich ore, and in lime this property
will probably make another good shipper. 	
Perry Creek.
Hank filler has given to McViltie &
Hutchison a specimen of rich gold lock
Irom his claim at the bead of Perry
creek, on lhe divide leading to Hells
Roaring creek. The gold is plainly visible in the rock and there is said to be
lwo leet in width of it in the ledgo.
This property will be exploited next
spring as soon as possible, the discovery ot the richness of the rock nol having been made until last fall. We may-
look forward to a revival of mining on
Perry creek iu a business-like wny next
summer nnd Mr, filler's claims will he
among the most promiucut, il lhe values
in this specimen are continuous in the
Horse Shoe.
The development of thi1* claim in Isa-
dor canyon is proving very satisfactory
to tlie owners. A contract to sink lo a
depth of 50 feet is neaily completed, the
present depth being 45 feet, and at that
depth some remarkably fine looking
copper ore is being taken out. Tbe
le ige is six feet wide, and is just now
opening out into a chamber of unknown
width likely to produce a large body of
pay ore. The contractors, Messrs. Ma-
lone and I,ewellyn, and the principal
owner, I,. It. VanDecar, are to be congratulated on the fine showing made.
The Hoiseshoe already looks tike a
mine, and as it is only four miles ftom
Cranbiook and a quarter of a mile from
the railway, the shipment of ore will be
comparatively easy.
Kootenay & llgoma.
The success of this company will be
more thoroughly assured il all the members and shareholders will Interest themselves in its affairs in a business like
way. At thc meeting oil February 5 a
detailed report will be submitted und
the policy of the company for next season carefully considered. The avowed
Intention of the management at the inception of the company wns lo develops
prospects merely to a point of sale and
sell at the best price obtainable nnd the
work on the Pedro show-t Up so well thai
it is Certain a few hundred dollars in lhe
spring will put that properly among the
saleable ones with its value proved beyond cavil, and tbe question will then
arise ns to how best to dispose nf it
The company lias severnl other propositions for consideration and it is desirable tbat all shareholders should hnve au
intelligent idea of the proposed operations and all should be present at the
general meeting.

A Passenger Train Leaves'the Track But
No One Killed.
The west bound train last Sunday
morning was wrecked oue mile nud a
half east of Creston, and three o| her
coaches were thrown from the track-
The accident occurred ou a curve, aud
what caused it is a mailer of theory, but
it is generally conceded lhat a low joint
resulted in a rail In ing torn up. llag*
gogeman Brunnell was alone in his car,
and received several bruises, but no injuries of a serious nature. Several passengers in the colonist car were badly
shaken up, but everybody escaped in a
most remarkable manner. The baggage car and the colonist were thrown
at an angle of 45 degrees from thc
track. The first-class car was off the
rails, lhe first trucks ofthe sleeper were
off the ra!ls, and likewise tbe hind
trucks of the tender. It wns a most
disastrous wreck for the compauy, as
lhe loss will be considerable.
Information of the wreck was telegraphed lo Cranbrook, with word that
several parties were badly injured. A
special was made up and Dr. Green, who
was at the hospital, was notified. He
uiade lhe trip ol six miles to Cranbrook
iu thirty minutes, aud the train left for
the scene of the disaster, with Roadmaster Krickson and Divisional Roadmaster
Telfer and Master Mechanic Johnson on
board, with a gang ol meu. It was necessary to build a new track around the
wreck, and il was a sight to see the rapid
work performed by these men in clearing
the track.
The passengers on the train were hurried on west, so that they were delayed
but a short time, and traffic was sits
pended ouly a few hours.
Tom Proctor, of Rossland, nnd J. C
Drewry, of Moyie, were the only passengers in the steeper.

old people young. Por years he has
avoided Nervousness, Sleeplessness, Indigestion, Heart trouble, Constipation
and Rheumatism, by using Electric Hitters, and he writes: "It cau't be praised
too highly. It gently stimulates the kid
neys, tones the stomach, aids digestion,
and gives a splendid appetite. It has
worked wonders for my wife nnd me
It's a marvellous remedy for old people's

Duller Reported All Ready.
London, Jan. 15—As corroborative or
the British activity iu Ihe direction of
the relief of Ladysuiith, a dispatch bos
been received iu Loudon from Buller to
the effect that be expected all dispositions for a synchronous movement of the
various columns against the beseigers
would    be   completed    this    morning
Under these circumstances it is considered quite probable that the advance on
the beleaguered town bas commenced
uud lhat fighting is in progress. Opti
mists go so far as to say it is expected
that Ladysmith will be relieved tonight
if all goes well.
Military men are divided in opinion as
to whether Buller is nt Springfield or
personally directing n Bank movement
from Weeneu. Officials are inclined to
credit tbe report that the British have
crossed the Tugela river Inithat direction, although tbere Is no confirmation
of the report, aad altogether there is a
more hopeful feeling in official circles.
There is little news of importance from
Boers are Withdrawing.
Advices from I'ieteruiaritzburg, dated
January 13. say tbat since their defeat on
January G tbe Boers have beeu removing
their guns from positions south of Ladysmith. The same dispatch confirmed
the report that the Thirteenth Hussars
reached Grohlerskloof without meeting
the Boers. As tbe trenches at Grohlerskloof were perhaps tbe strongest position held hy the burghers, their vacation hus considerably astonished tbe
British.      i__

The Earl ol Ava Dead.
London, Jon. 12.—It is reported this
evening tint the Bar) of Ava has died of
his wounds. He was bom in 1S63 and
was the eldest sou of the Matquis ol
Dufferin antl Ava, former governor gen
eral of Canada, viceroy of In Ma and

He Fires His First Heavy Onu Against the
Victoria, ]nn. 10—Joe Martin Ibis
afternoon fired his first heavy guns
against the government of which he was
until recently a member and whose destruction be now aims to accomplish
having allied himsalf with the straight
opposition led by Mr. Turner. It was
unquestionably the mosl remarkable
speech ever delivered in a British Col-
umbia parliament, for in it both the
premier and the finance minister were
accused of the erosvst breaches of trust
and honor. The former was charged
with imbecile incompetency. The remarkable characteristic of it was tbat
through all the merciless arraignment
not one interjection of correction or di* -
seusion was ventured by any member
ofthe attacked party. Passing to the
speech from the throne, Martin declared
it failed to provide for necessary and
radical legislation pledged to the people
and desired by them, while aiming to
grant in exchanging cash subsides for
tbe Columbia & Western laiid grant to
the C. P. R which dominated the present government, two snd a quarter mil-
lions of the public money to wbicb, by
the law of the land, they had no right
and which lhe government knew by the
opinions of Sir Christopher Robinson
and B B. Osier they had no right. He
also attacked bitterly the proposal lo
grant re-distribution in West Kootenay so
aa to allow a member to Boundary creek,
and asserted this was mostly a political
dodge to enable the government by dividing a known safe constituency to try
and bold on to power for three years
more, against the wishes and interests
of the people. He asked for a general
redistribution and an appeal to the
country as tbe first plank in his own
platform; and saiil his present alliance
dated only from his discovery of Cotton's
recent frantic bnt unsuccessful attempt
to gain a coalition; and that it extended
only to tbe mutual desire to secure the
government's defeat. He urged a general Canadian agitation to prevent the disallowance of the British Columbia labor
legislation against Chinese and Japanese;
and as a test of bis own or the government's position challenged Cotton,
McKechnie, Ralph Smith or Scnlin to
resign and contest with him their own
constituencies, offering to wager $2<n
tbat not one could save his deposit.
It Is Major Sauaders Now.
Inspector Saunders, well known along
the Crow while in charge of the mounted
police during construction, has joined
the second contingent, and owing to
tbe inability of Major Walker, of Mae*
leod. to leave. Mr. Saunders has bun
promoted to the place.
W. W. Ogllvle Dead.
Montreal, Jan. 12.—W. W. Ogilv e,
the largest individual miller in the
world, died suddenly today. He at
tended a meeting ofthe directors of lhe
li ink of Montreal aud at the end ol llie
meeting complained of not feeling well.
He drove to a doctor'* aud then home,
expiring a short time afterwards. Death
was due to the breaking of a blood vessel iu tbe region of tbe heart.
Is Kitchener Chief?
London, Jan. 13—It now leaks out
that Lord Kitchener is really chief iu
South Africa aud Lord Roberts a figurehead. It happened thus: Tbe national
defence committee met and decided that
Lord Kitchener was the man for the
place. He was Lord Salisbury's nomination, but endless difficulties were encountered. Thc trouble was Lord
Kitchener was lhe junior of General
Buller, Warren and others, but Loid
Salisbury is never beaten upon a technicality, and his solution of the problem
was to send Lord Roberts, who will res-ore the confidence of the men by bis
p esence as fi Id marshal], while Lord
Kitchener- being his aide, will be en-
-1M1 d, under cover of his superior, to
conduct the campaign. Thc geuernl

was cracked nnd ridgy, because the ln-
ceRMint moi ion of Ute water prevented
It from freezing smoothly, but now it
was almost as glassy as the Ice on the

Away I flew, dellghfcd. Once T was
clear of the island, the gale struck me
with increased strength nnd so greatly

get lo iny feet, even to save my life.
Tt djrl nol seem so-cold now.  I began
to feel drowsily comfortable, and sus>
regaining shelter in the teeth of the
wind. So I circled about to the right.
faced toward the shore—and stopped
short! The gale iin*! me liken wall.
It was impossible for mo to sknto
against it.
I took u few vigorous strokes, but in
vain. When 1 tried to stand still [ went
sliding nway before the wind. Again
and again I renewed the struggle, desperately exhausting .myself. Every bicyclist, knows the hcnrt-lircakingstrain
of riding against a head wind, but this
wns worse, for I was not able to advance
even n yard. Indeed, I actually lost,
ground, I ••■ould slop myself only by
sitting down, and that was whal I did.
] wns not then much alarmed. It.
seemed absurd to suppose lhat an nble-
bodled and active young man would be
prevented from crossing two miles of
ice'by wind power nlone. Could I not
"tuek" to right and left, and thus beat
up through the storm?
I got up, and began to skate vigorously in a southeasterly direction, bearing
to the east, SO thai the wind blow upon
my right side, or upon my "went her
how." Por some minutes all seemed to
go well. 1 held my head down nud
traveled as fnat as was possible. Hut
when I made ready to "go about" upon
the olher tack, aud looked to sec what
progress I hnd made. I was horrified
to find 1 had been blown so fur to leeward ns to be quite half 11 mile fjini
titer from shelter than before.
1 tried to rectify Hie error by striking
out Btrongly northeast to north, but
the force of lhe storm would not even
allow nm to turn at right anglers to Its
course, I was gradually and Imperceptibly driven to veer ivcstwurd. The
gale seemed to gain strength overy moment. In ten minutes another half
mile seemed lost, and the headland nf
Parry island began to grow* ful ill in
dis to neo nnd gathering twilight.
I now fell, myself to be at tin* mercy
of the wind,  Then* was no abatement
in its violence as night drew 011. ll
blew Inexorably with a steady, great
prewure, bringing a fow grains of dry
Minw, that slid swiftly like sund along
the ice. So long iw I remained nn
my feel I wns borne farther nud farther from shore, in splleof over*, effort.
Ii was bitter cold, the flying grains of
snow cut when 1 faced them,nnd I wtf
down once more, wilh my buck to Ibe
weather, nnd tried to think ofa plan for
saving my life.
The prospect was terrifying. 1 hod
proved unable to make headitgalnal the
storm. The ice was so smooth Hint
I eould not walk ou Itwltih my skates
off. 1 could not sit still und wnli for
Hie weather to moderate, lest I be
frozen solid in a few hours. The one
active thing [ could dn was to run
Btrulghl before the wind.
and didn't much
1 could for awhile feel the snow beating Incessantly on my face and shoulders, for I wns in n sort of doze, but not
wholly unconscious. Presently the
snow ceased falling I hist count nf the
lapse of lime, bul 1 was suddenly
awakened by a heavy blow, as if a plank
had fallen across my body. I came to
myself in an Instnnt,and on raising my
head found myself completely Imbedded iu snow,
I wns not particularly eold now, nnd
the queer, niinili feeling in my legs was
gone I could hear the roaring of the
storm outside, nml began to realize that
the thin, flying snow had needed only
such nn obstacle as my body to form n
very respectable drift, nl the bottom of
which I was interred, and which had nr*
rested the freezing process.
As I thought nf this, another dull
thud sounded upon the top of my
sepulchre, I sol up with some difficulty, threw the snow aside, and looked
I realized iu in moment*whnf had occurred. The wind hud shifted from
east of north to west of north, ami
under Its influence massive billows
were now rolling on the western edge
of my peninsula, ISow nnd Ihen a crest
of a breaker, blown bodily off by the
gale.would fnll with a resounding crash
fnr up on the ice. Without doubt, it
was such nn event thai had awakened
me, nnd jnst In time, for it way certain
that the lee nbout me would soon be
breaking tip.
I jumped up nud struck out. With
the new direction of the wind, I knew
thnt I was saved. 1 could not return to
Parry sound, bul Pfcnetnn-gtilsliene nnd
Midland lay IS miles down 1 he const,
and w ith tlie gnle at my back* I fancied
that il would be easy to cover lhat distance.
II wns not so easy as I had Imagined.
As Ihe sounds of crushing nnd rending
iee died nway behind, I found myself
weak and wenry. My legs ached, my
back a.hrd. my head ached. I would
have given worlds lo sit down and rcsl
-ihe one Ihing which I dnrcil nm do.

it was n men* thin. hqrry1tig,*ourrylng,

eollecled as a drift by some slight obstacle,

was a restorative. Apollo, In tho "Iliad, ".-

There Ir still existing a manuscript
letter written hy sir Thomas More to
his wife, Alvi'i', when the news enme to
htm that hts great mansion at I'hpslu,
with its offices and huge granaries, had
heen almost entirely destroyed I y lint.
Instead of lamenting over his loss, he
hlds her first "find nut IT any poor neighbors had stored their oorn hi the granaries," and if so, to recompense thom.
Secondly, to dtschnrgo no servant until
he have another abiding plaoo' and lastly, to "be of good oheoro, and take nil
tho household with you to church, and
thero thank Rod for what He hath
given ns nnd what Ho  huth left «*•."
He Urges her, ''I pray ynu, Alyrp,
with iny children t:i bo merry In   God,"
Most of us, If wo had lost property
and home, woulU think we did well If
we were patient under God's will; hut
to be cheerful, and oven "merry" In
Him, is almost a forgotten gracn.
"Why," ask id a Hindu sage, "why nre
the Christians melancholy num. If I believed ns they sny, that thu grent God
wns my Father and that Ills Hon wns
my Elder Hrother, I should not groan
though I lost n few bushels of wheat, or
eveu an eye. I should ho of all men

Most men will laugh when they nre

blood deteriorates.
It loses its nourishing, vitalizing,
henlth-giving qualities. The faco becomes pale, thin
and waxen, the lips
bloodless, the hands
and feet eold.
There is weakness, tiredness,
shortness of breath and palpitation. When
those suffering from thin or watery blood
start'taking Milburn's Heart and Nerve
Pills tbey are assured of a cure. Every
dose acts on the heart itself, causing it
to beat strong, steady aud regular.
Every dose, too, introduces into the
blood those vital olements necessary to
make it rich and red.
Soon the pnlo cheek takes on the rosy
hue of health, there is strength instead of
weakness, energy nnd activity take the
place of tiredness and lassitude.

A voting man and woman In thli otty,
belonging to tne Snolety ol Friends, who
hnve  certified   their intention of  mar
riagu at the Olty Hull, aie having tu
undergo the regal'*r form which tht
society Imposes by waiting tor the approval of the monthly meeting before
they enn be married. The (lr-*t Btage ln
the proceeding** is for them hoth to nppear at the monthly meeting of the
society, whleh is the only time that any
business is done, aiui inake known their
Intentions. Thry hoth stand up before
the meptlug. and the mnn snysi "With
Ulvlne permission and tin* Friends' approbation I declare my Intention to take
this womnn (and bo onlls her name) to
ho my wife," nnd then thny sit down.
| But the enaction of the society for the
i marriage requires more than this form-
nitty. It te never granted unless both
: jiartles ar« Friends, and so If one of the
young people la out of the fold Hey hnve
to I-.* married without    the    formal    ap.
i prove! (,f ths society.
I When the approval Is seen rod the
' couple marry themselves, 'J ho ceremony
1 Is appointed by the society to take place
at some regular meeting, or etee at one
specially appointed. In the hitter case It
may lie at n honse wben* any one ol the
society hns tho right to he present, llut
the mosi Interesting oeremony is thnt
which takes pluee ln a regular nssombly
of the society at thu mooting house. Any
otm who has heen  to  a   Quaker Borvlca
knows the fashion of the meeting house,
Willi Its high seats ln front, feeing the
rem of the meeting. Tho elders usually
sit there, but when a couple of young
people are going lo get married they
have to occupy thtsoonsplauousplaoo,and
havo lo stand up bravely, without minister or elder, mul marry themselves.
Au old (Junker minister who suld he
hnd seen six couples stand up in this
way bef-jro the congregation was asked
why the young people had to dn it alone,
and he said It wns a matter that did not
concern an Intermediate person, hut rest
oil between themselves mul God, Thnn
he doserlh'ed how tlio young mnn would
stand up In that hlgh-perohed place In
the meeting house ilong with his bride,
ntul, taking her hand, sny: "In the
presence of God and this assembly, 1 tako
thee. A. B., to Iib my wife, promising to
be unto thee and atleotionate ami loving
husband until thn hand of tho Lord by
dfath shall soparate us." Tho bride then
(■■peaks In a similar fashion.
At tho end of this ceremony a minister prays or speaks, ami then, when there
is a pause and tho spirit moves no one
else, tbo meeting is adjourned. At tho
close of the meeting tho marriage cortlil-
eate, whioh Is made of parchment, is
brought forward, and any one can sign
It. A speolal law sanctions this marriage
ceremony. Thedornment,which amounts
to the legal sanction of the mnrrlagn, is
greatly prised among the desoendnuts of
Friends, so much so that the children
have often similar marriage o&rtlllcatfls
inane for themselves, though they may
bave been married outside of the society,

"How much do yon charge!1"
"One dollar lu the legal fee, sir."
"Will you lake your foe In    beeswax!-"
"Yes, If you ain't pay cash."
"Well, go abend and tie the knot, and
I'll fetch lu the wax."
"No," said the squire, thinking there
was a good chance fnr a little (un:
' bring in the beeswax first, and then
I'll marry you."
Kelnctnntly tlie youth wont out ta

On holng weighed, Iti value was found
ti ho only about half a dollar.
"Wai," said iho anxious groom, "tie

"No, sir; I don't trust; that's agaln«t

h-'lowly the disappointed youth turned
to go out, saying: —
"Como. Hal- let'B go."
"I say, mister," answered Sal, with a

"Yes, I can, and will," replied the
