Please understand that these

think that you may confidently
feel thnt the Directors will' endorse whatever I suggest."
Thero is no use, in a communication of this kind entering into
the merits  or  demejits  of  the

Municipality cares to attach to
our system, the Municipality to
purchaso*the existing hydrants.
2. I will furnish frce^ sufficient
water to flush the sewers,, provided the amount required is not
excessive I should llko to bo-
advised what the water- require-
- ments for thia   purpose. will   be.
but do not anticipate any difli-
. culty in eiving you all your requirements.
,3. I will furnish water from
the hydrauts for street watering
purposes, at' tho rate of $10.00
per month per hydrant.-     ,   ,
4. 1 guarantee to have, before

DearSir:—" • '~
WaJind liop«d tolinve made you an offer
for the fioyiOO, 57,30 year bonds of thovity of
F4irnie, wliioli you ae iidvcrtisiiiB for Kale, but
regret to say that up to tho present we have.
been unsuccessful in gettlnt; our clients Interested, altliouRh wo mov possibly yet be
ablo to do so before tho time for receiving
offerd expires. If we dn not succeed in putting
in au oii or, nnd you do not succeed in getting
whatyon'con*-idci a saliofactoiybid for tbem,
say, anything better thnn par, if vou -would
give ua thc refusal of thc l-oiids'forn slut
time, say a fort-night or so, we think we could
sell them to advsmtape for you, and possibly
at a considerable premium over par. The fact
is, there are so many municipalities askinf*
for oft'ers for bonds of this sort at present, that
our clients are Rottlriff tired of junking offers,
because it tii.ie» tiim* toiuvu.itiijatuoiid make
up their minds that' the security is satisfactory, and if they >ln thin, they want to know
that they can get the bonds if ll><.y dti'jide
favorably, so that it is much easier to sella
bond Bucti as this when a fixed pi ice i. state i
that will be accepted, and when the intending purciiauer knows ihut lio can have the
bonds at tlmt price If lio decides to purchuse.
If, therefore, you do not get a satisfactory
offer, or ono that you think worth accepting,
wo will consider It a favor if you will ari-anpe
to give us thu refudual of the bonds in this
way.   ,

Calvert Varty Esq.,
City Clerk,
Fernie, B.C.
Dear Sir:—
•. We are just in receipt of your letter of tlio
12IU containing information regarding. Ui«
City of Fernie and the issue of $100,000, thirty
year 5/{ bonds.
, This seems to us a very heavy issue for a
town with an assessment of ouly a H*M« over
half a million dollars and a population of
slightly ovor 4000 and we are-afraid that tho offers you will get fur so large an Issuo will bo
dUsappomgly low. If it were possible to issue
only the ?40,(X» for sewers at the present time
and defer the water work issuo till somo
future ouo.tbion, woare of tha opinion thatyi u
would be much moro likely to receive satis*
factory offers. We think \\tin view will bo
concurred in by most bond dealers. Wu do
not feel that we would care to mako an offer
atthepreRent'timefor;100,oooof thoso deben*
turea.    '
If by any chance it should happen that tho
Council finally deoido to issuo only the l'40,000
for sowers we shall bo glad to hear from you
further and to do whatever we can in the
One suggestion I would make and that is
that you have tho bonds Issued In dcnomlna-
tlonsof either $500 ortl.000 instead of J1O0. This
is altogether too small a denomination for convenience and you will tind that most buyeis
object to taking a lot of bonds of a very small
denomination Instead of a smaller number of
a larger, denomination. It is customary to
have bonds issued in denominations of eithor
1.100 or $1,000 and people object to unnecessary
ohangcB in such matters.
Yours truly,
\    li. K.-PEACOCK

supply from Fairy cruek, and I
will undertake to give you-an
easement for use of right-of-way
.from the bank of the Elk river to
tho limits of the Municipality, as
then existing, provided tho "route
is left to the selection of this company, I may say in thiB connection, however, that I think it
would bo well to dotermino what
this route shall be, because of
possible settiomont along tho
projected lino of this easement.
I am not prepared to mako any
undertaking In regard, to water
ratoH, further than to say that
the ni-ppont rates seem reasonable
and l do not know of anv reason
why thoso rates should 'hi, tho
future bo Increased. I think you
mny safely roly upon It that thev
w,ill not bo Increased.
If tho ratepayers should wish It
lam prepared to'undertake that
the water to supply the town
shall como from above tho Mines.

Centuries ago Caesar - said   that  he

that while their work was cherished
they were despised  even  by  them
who offered the bribe, and by  none
more so.   It is repugnant to the inner
conscience to view with anything but
the most abject contempt and hatred
the men who accept bribes whether
tlie same' be offered in cash or  its
■equivalent. - Philosopher alter phil-
- osopher has written and spoken of
' the positive wretchedness of them
who accept bribes,.   There can be no,
real friendship between the corrupter and tho oorru pted.   So soon as the
endR of tho briber have been accomplished he invariably seekB to rid
himself of tho man whom ho bribed.
Thus does it appear that the, goal of
true success is reached only through
following a straight lino ot duty.

* Slept Thirty-one Years
Leonora Romaido,, the wife of a
farm hand at Villasciensd,-. near Burgos, lias awakened - from a trance
which has lasted 31 years.
The case has been under the close
observation of medical experts during
the whole of that time, and by their
instructions liquid food was regulM'?
ly administered by a tube placed in
tbe mouth of the .sleeping woman.
At times it was believed that the
woman was waking, and various
means were employed to restore her
to consciousness, but they failed.
She has now regained her senses,
but cannot be persuaded that Bhe has
slept for years. A curious feature of
the case Is that'she remembered the
incidents ot her girlhood* up to the
time that she fell Into the trance.
Her body is tairly weil nourished,
but her hair has turned white. On
being shown a mirror the woman
shrieked with horror, nnd declared
hat the image it reflected was not
her own.

A third substitute was composed of
gentian, licorice, sassafras, and prickly

Henry * Bremley Davis, formerly a
well-known character, of the Kootenays,
is In the city from Sonth Africa. Mr.
Davis left here with . Hie" Canadian
Mounted Rifles on January 26th; 1900,
"for South Africa, since which lime he
lias seen ,'many'".strange' places and
passed through- some stirring scenes..
He served in the war and then enlisted
■ ih Baden-Powell's mounted police, serving  in the Canadian Mounted  Rifles
' and in the mounted police for. a period
of two years and nine months. . After
that lie joined his fortunes, with ;Geo.
"McNee,"* formerly <T Kootenay - prospector. They oritfuted in fine style for a
prospecting* trip'on the Crocodile river,
which is located oii the frontier of Rhodesia. They allowed their mules to
drinlcout of the Qrocodile tiver, and
almost before they knew it the crocodiles had eaten two of them. As mules
cost $150 a piece,-which is rather expensive food to give to slimy crocodiles,
they did not allow them tb again drink
from that river.* By good luck and the
assislunceof some Canadians, in lhe
mounted police.they secured two mules
to replace the two that had been eaten
by lhe reptiles.' Prospecting .was full
ofdirticullies. In order to keep away
the reptiles,they had to keep, two fires
liurning, The four natives they had
with; them" kept up the fires while
Messrs.Davis and .McNee prospected.
They were very, fortunate in finding
-gold-dust, and they als"o found enough
diamonds lo make them independent.as
, long as they lived; When (hey returned to .civilization they placed their
gold dust and diamonds on .exhibition
and ihey'-attraclcd much attention and
caused quite a furore, , This led to inquiries, and ihey learned that they had
unwillingly'been -prospecting'on land
belonging to,the British South-African
company. ' The, diamonds and the gold
dust were confiscated. Tlie company
offered" Mr. Davis $5 a day to prospect'
along"the Crocodile river for il, bui. he
refused to lake it, as he, fell'' indignant;
although all th.il he had left, owing  to
' lhe confiscation of the"'diamonds and
gold dust, was $125 and the venture
had cost liim $5:000 and his partner as
■ 'much more.7 , -, '      '   ' '-"

Tlie bridging of the Zambesi and the
approaches to it presented considerable

About Lowery's Claim
Mr. R. T. Lowery, the genius of
western journalism iii Canada, is about
to establish a monthly journal at Kelson to be known as Lowery's Claim.
Mr. Lowery tried the Claim once before wilh excellent results every way,
but financially. Let us hope that this
time there will be no exception to his
range of success1. Tlie witty mountain editor tersely declares. "It will
be a monthly journal,,devoted to truth,
and humor, with no strings upon its
editorials," and we cannot have* too
many papers of that sort, even if Mr.
Lowery publishes it at a loss.—Tor-
4*nto Globe.'
The Globe makes one error. The
>ld Claim was a financial success from
ihe grass roots.
R. T. Lowery, of the Fernie Ledge,
".iIks of again establishing, his month*
y paper, the Claim.    He should do so.
it i-i writing tor a paper of this charac-
er thai Lowery does his   best   work.
To be bothered with petty details, to be
mndicapped with the weekly expense
■ill, is enough to take the humor and
■nosy out of any nature on earth,  and
io man of talent can do justice to him-
:elf trying to give freedom to his thought
md wondering at the same time if Pete
Jones will have his ad in another week.
We would like   to   see  Lowery .with
£100,000 in the bank and   nothing 'to
■Jo   but   write (for u monthly paper
of his own.    That would   be  a  paper
worth reading.—Cranbrook Herald.
Tlio Fernie Ledge, after a year's ruil
has been sold by R. T. Lowfery to a
local company with D, V. Mott at the
head, and the erstwhile humorist bf
theSlocan tvill return 10 the'more con*
sume the publication of his "Claim."
Just as there is always room, "at the
lop" so there is room here for an original humorist, whose witticisms and
jokes are never stnle," whose philosophy
is sound, and whose outlook on life and
humanity have not been soured by a
too close acquaintance with the "seamy
side,"- Cheery optimism of the Mark
Tnpley, of the Checryhlc Brothers type,
is what we want,, und no doubt ' thin
i.*, what the "Claim" will dispense, for
has il hot the endorsation of the Rev.
James McDonald, editor of llie Toronto Globe?—Nelson Tribune. •
British Colambia has found afrtend
In the Canadian Magazine. That
ably-edited periodical notes that this
province is somewhat' dissatisfied
with its treatment by the federal authorities and ia demanding better
terms. It remarks: This discontent
may or may not be wholly just, but
it is quite-evident' that -- it demands
serious attention. Manitoba has been
tilled with settlers and gridironed
with railways. The territories have
been the special care ot the department ot the interior, and m'aoh hap.
been done to assist in their development. British Columbia has been
somewhat neglected. Her time has
now coma. Her needs ere great.
She Is quite justified in keeping her
claims well advertised, and she deserves every consideration at the
hands ot the remainder ot Canada.
It Canada is to be a united "country
justice mUBt be done every province.
No, part of the Dominion should bo
coddled at the expense of another.
The measure ot British Columbia's
claim Is her contribution to the general revenue. It is a good sign to
see the case for British Columbia taken up in this vigorous way by the
chief magazine of tbecournry.

There is a;, six foot vein of fine

A Good Time

Dogs Wonderful Sagucity
Prof. O.'l. Cozad, of Cozad's California Doff, Pony, Monkey and Goat
Circus tells a storv of.the sagacity of
ono of his pots. Whon I was 01T tho
road I lived In a largo house at tho
winter quarters and ono of tho inmates was it* performing-*■ dog lhat
seemed to show almost human intelligence. ' His name is Sport nnd ho
does everything but talk whon por*
forrnlnir'with our show. A young
lady friend of ours onco teased him
by scufninp" about tho rups of our
homo until she could glvo an electric spark upon tho doir's nose. Not
lone; after this experience tho dog
was observed to roll upon tho rugs,
entirely of Its own accord, and then
to run to tho bras-i bod-stonda and obtain a spark. This ho continues to
do, nnd hla own observation seems
to have taught him thut ho must np
proach motal In ordor to reoolvo tho
spark. In ono room ho runs to the
bed steads; in another to tlio reglsler,
and us ho licks his noso after thc
pricking of the spark ho never fails
to wag the remains bf his tail, and
his fuco HNSuinos a deoldo expression
of pleasure. "Sport'- Is bin ono of a
hundred dogs thut Prof. Cozed exhibits with his splendid equine, simian
and canine paradox, Ov*i-r ono hundred demure Shetland ponies nnd
monkeys nro also with tho show nnd
tho friendship between these dumb
animals Is aB much a bouito of con-
Htunt wonderment to-Prof, Coznd as It
is to the public. Exhibitions will bo
