The Kiin mineral claim, situate on the
north side of the Iron Mask und Copper
Quean mineral claims, about five miles
southwest of Knmliinp*., Jt. 0.- and owned
hy Messrs. Beattie, Buxton and Blair, and
nn which development work hns been going on ior some months i«ns 1, \a said to be
proving Itself one of the best properties in
lhe camp. On New Year's eve an immense
body of me was struck in 11 erosseut made
from the shaft at a depth of 40 feet. The
vein of solid ore is aliout seven feet wide
ami gives au assay from $1!) ill gold to 30
per cent copper, as well uh a proportion of j
silver. Other assays made run in value
from $20 tu $02 per ton. At Coal Hill the
I'utlmok 7x12 shaft is being energetically
sunk by a force of six men, making an average of about one foot each day of 10
hours. The shaft lias reached a depth of
40 feet, till in much shattered and decomposed rock, with the fissures filled and separated by thin plates of native copper,
and, as yet, impregnated but sparsely with
rich copper glance. One corner, the southwest, is a sight worth seeing, being plastered with bright native metal. Altogether this claim is a most interesting study.
Just how the native metal came to be deposited in such profusion throughout this
great mass is n conundrum not yet solved.
There is not much, if any, doubt, tliat it
is a product of alteration, and it is not
likely to prove a normal constituent of
the dyke, even if, as seems probable, the
fissure be found to be on ft dyke. It apparently comes from the leaching of the
gray ore or glance. The rock itself is
either serpentine or a mixture of that rock
with olprite, and this alternates with a
•onglomerate of many parts. About $4 in
gold adds to the value and the plates of
native copper are gradually becoming
thicker as the work of sinking progresses.
• struck It  Rich.
Michael Griiertih and his son, Alcide,
who left. Fort Saskatchewan in May last,
with a man named Irish, to travel to Idaho by team, are said to have struck it rich
in that state through an accidental discovery of a rich quartz claim. The story
reads like fiction. The party was traveling over a high range of mountains near
Uoise City, when one of their horses became exhausted and they were compelled
to ciMiip for the night pn the mountain top.
in the morning Irish wandered a little
distance from the camp and chanced to
pick up some fragments of peculiar looking rock, which he showed to his companions. They examined it, and, actuated
principally by curiosity, took a bag and
partly filled it with the broken rocks. On
reaching Uoise City they had the rock assayed, and the assayer pronounecd it gold
quartz worth $85 to the ton. On the news
becoming known throughout the town,
great excitement was aroused and Irish
was offered $12,000 for liis one-thiroVshare,
which he accepted and departed for Portland. The claim was duly surveyed aiid
stoked and active operations will commence when the snow goes. The Messrs.
(luerlin and their new partner, named
Carson, have been offered $30,000 for the
claim, but refused the offer.
Well l''tiiil|i*>(Ml Party.
Sixty-seven men, comprising the Alaskan-Klondike Co-operative Expedition,
have arrived at Tacoma over the Northern
Pacific. Tho party comes mainly from
New York and Philadelphia, and will leave
Tacoma for Alaska with one of the most
complete outfits ever taken into that
country. They will carry a complete complement of the most approved machinery, two steam launches, a sawmill, and
an assaying and refining plant. Fifty
horses have been purchnsed in Tacoma for
draft purposes. Three mechanical engineers, two mining engineers, one assnyev
and refiner, two chemists, two physicians
and one dentist are included in thp party.
They will carry an outfit sufficient to last
them lfi months.
To Control the Klondike.
Joseph Lndue, recently from the northern gold fields, says: "The North American Transportation and Trading Company
is thc only one now buying claims in the
Klondike. 1 understand thot they are
acting as agents for the Rothschilds. I
met Mr. Cudahy on the train from Chicago to San Francisco and he told me that
they had just received $400,000 in drafts
which hod been given in payment of
claims there. He said the company was
acting ns agent iu purchasing, and 1 learn
that the Rothschilds are preparing to
spend $2-000,000 for the purchase of mines,
It looks a little os though the great Knglish banking house was making stupend*
01)8 efforts to control all the claims on the
Klondike."
Control  tlie  Stein  Winder.
A mining man from Fairview camp, li,

Mann, the well-known railroad contractors, have recently acquired a seven-eighths
War Eagle mountain famous in the early
days.
Working placer Ground*
Considerable development work is going
on in the Independence district, in Park
county, Montana, under tlie direction of
E. M. Cowles, who has invested within the
lost year several thousands of dollars in
the Independence and JJoulder districts.
His placer ground has begun to net him
some nice returns, as well as the quartz
properties he is opening up. The force he
has been working for the past season has
not been lurge (a dozen men), hut he has
taken out and treated considerable ore at
the stamp mill, nevertheless. Next summer he will increase his force to 40 or 50
men. Mr. Cowles recently acquired entire
control of the Ileurdsley placer mines in
the Boulder district, and much of his op
(■rations next season will be in developing
these placers. He is well backed by a syn
dieatc of Connecticut copitalists.
'RIDDLE OF THINGS THAT ARE.'
MANY HAVE DIED ON THE PASS.
Hell   Full   From   MvpiiNiiic   Trying
Reach   the   Klondike.
Seattle. Feb. 2H.—The steam schooner
Novo, which has arrived here from Skaguay, Alaska, brings news which, if true,
will probably cause international complications. Parties arriving ot Skaguay before the Kayo left circulated the report
that the Canadian mounted police had
raised the British flag at Summit lake,
which is 12 miles from Skaguay and 14
miles inside of the American line as at
present defined. Captain Lindquist of the
Noyo says the report had not been verified when he left Skaguay, and that he
places hut little credence in it.
The Noyo also brings news of many
deaths on the White pass resulting from
cold and exposure.
On Thursday, February 15, the bodies
of five men who had died on the trail
were brought into Skaguay. Jt was impossible to learn'their names. All died
from what is called cercbro spinal meningitis, whicli is quite prevalent in Skaguay and along the trail. It has its origin
in exposure and a lack of sufficient cloth*
Ing to withstand the severe cold.
The Noyo has as passengers three Daw*
sonitcs, who stopped at Juneau. They
were James Brownell, Frank Laroy and
L. R. Flint. They are reported to have
brought out about $00,000 worth of gold
dust and drafts from the interior. Stormy
weather was encountered by the Noyo.
Thirty-one vessels were passed bound for
the north.

Halifax, X. S., Feb. 20.—The 300 and
odd passengers on board the French liner
La Champagne will rest more soundly
than they have for 10 days. Since Thursday two weeks ago half of the time they
have drifted ou the Atlantic, and three
days and nights have been filled with
anxiety for their personal safety. Their
fears and cores on account of danger have
now been dissipated by the happy knowledge that they are no longer at the mercy
of the stormy ocean.
After drifting for five days on the Newfoundland banks with her engines dis-
nbled and the screw shaft shattered, the
great Boston-bound freighter Roman,
from Liverpool; came along, picked her
up and brought her into Halifax without
further mishap of consequence.
ALL IS RUSTLE AT WATERVLIET
Orders   for   Projeetllew   to   He   Delivered  at  Fort   Hamilton.
Albany, N. Y.. March 1.—The greatest
activity known since the late rebellion is
witnessed at. the Watervliet arsenal. The
entire force is working night, and day. On
Friday night an order was received for
the shipment of two carloads of 12-Inch
projectiles for Fort Hamilton, with the
greatest possible haste. Saturday afternoon they were dispatched to that point.
Orders have also been received for the
shipment of all projectiles now on hand
to the several forta about New York and
to forward all complete guns as speedily
as possible to the proving grounds at
Sandy Hook. Such an order has not beeu
received al Watervliet since the close of
the war. It is expected that the last six
loads of projectiles will be shipped during
thc present week.
OFFICERS SHOT BY A MANIAC.
Patrick   Feu Ion   and   Daniel   Carrey
Fatally  Wounded in Chleauo.
Chicago, Feb. 28,—Olllcer Patrick Poll-
Ion was killed and Ollicer Daniel Carrey
fatally wounded by Michael Clark, whom
they attempted to arrest lust night. Clark
is a butcher. His landlady noticed that
he was oet ing strangely ami asked llllll
to vacate, but he refused and barricaded
the doors of his room. Police were called and forced an entrance. As Fenlon
stepped into the room lie received a bullet
through the heart. Carrey leaped upon
the maniac and iu the struggle received a
shut through the body. Clark saw his
interest in the Stemwinder mine, in that I victims fall and jumped through the see-
camp, paying for the same $100,000.
Found Another  llleh  Poeket.
The Graves brothers, the Trinity county, California, miners, whose rich strike
severol months ago caused ft rush to that
part of the stnte, have arrived in San
Francisco with 02 pounds of gold, valued
at, $10,000, the product of ft pocket recently found in a lower level of the Blue Jay
mine, the same property in which their
first phenomenal find was made.
Spokane Men In Luck.
A rich strike is reported to have been
made in the Cumberland mine on War
Fagle mountain at Silver City, Idaho. The
mine, which is being worked by Soimc-
niftn nnd Bronseombe of Spokane, has had
on ore body running about $100 in gold.
The new strike is in the 200-foot level and
is o  12-inch streak of ore  that carries

We walk in a world where no mon reada
The riddle of things thot are,
From a tiny fern in thc valley's heart
To the light of the largest star,
Vet we kuow that the pressure uf life ii

Aud the silence of death is deep,
As we foil and rise on the tangled way
That leads to the gate uf sleep.
We know that the problems of sin und

And the passion8 that lead to crime,
Are the mysteries locked from age tu age
In the awful vault of time;
let we lift our weary feet and strive
Through tlte mire and mist to grupe
And find a ledge ou the mount uf fuith
In the morning laud of hope.

MISS FAITH'S ADVICE.
Miss Faith sat lu close companionship, us usual, with ber familiar spirit,
a piece of crocheted edging. Her tout-li
upou the mazes of tangled thread was
very gentle, eveu endearing, and ber
look of content ns she held It up and
noted Ils effect as a whole seemed vastly out of proportion to the cause. Miss
Faith was still pretty, with the pathetic beauty held as tlotsani from the
wreck of years. Her hair was prettier
as silver than It had ever been as
brown, aiid her eyes, though they had
lost their vivid glow and eagerness,
had gained u kindly sympathy. Her
tenderness hud even extended to the
crocheting In her hand und Imparted
something to that usually very Impersonal object that her fancy hnd fretted Into thinking a response. She passed her hnnd affectionately over It now,
us the figure of a pineapple, much conventionalized, repeating Itself like history again and again, fell In scallops lo
lhe flooi-. "It's most done," she
thought. "I cnu go buck lo the ouk
leaf pretty soou."
A change in the crochet pattern was
the chief diversion of Faith's life, that
ran on ns monotonously to the observer
os the time of the famous harper who
played upon only one string. To an
and tlie coming of a stick or a stojie
may be a great event. It Is not bard to
understand how a life that consists lu
taking inlinite pains with ninny little
things may get Its sips of excitement.
Interest and novelty from a change iu
a pattern oi* crochet. The exnihi-nation
of the work appeared lo be satisfactory, and Faith laid it on Hie table at
her side. This table was devoled to
lhe uses of her art. nor was ever profaned by the presence of any irrevelanl
substance. There were rows of spools
upou it. drawn up In lines like soldiers
ready to receive an attack, hooks of
various sizes lying like weapons by
their sirle, and various i*olIs of luce, tlie
finished product of their warfare. Faith
regarded them with approval, but her
hand that lind Iain upou the table fell
away from the accustomed tusk, and
she snt Idle, watching tlie red coal, the
shadows the lamplight threw upou the
carpet, and listening to the clatter that
Mary, her maid of all work, was making as a part of the dishwashing.
"It's a kind of jugglery she goes
through with those dishes." thought
Faith regretfully, "a sleight-of-hand
perform;nee, to see how many tricks
she can do before one of them will
bretrk."
But aer face did not cloud, for she
hn.l learned resignation. She hnd sur-
i-entU-red to Mary the dishes and all the
rest • )f the household divinities that she
had served so deftly and carefully for
years that she might be more at leisure
to while nway her time lu her owu innocent fashion.
She wondered, ns she snt staring
dully at the blaze, how the crocheting
hud to come to mean so much to her
and could not thluk for the Instant,
then half remembered, saddened a little, lost the thread of memory again,
recovered It, and fell lo tunning, her
elbow resting on the table, her cheek
In her palm. She could hardly believe
now thnt a cerlnln few years of her life
had ever j-enlly happened. They must
have belonged to some other and wandered wilfully luilo her owu, for there
was no home for them in heirs or likeness unto anything they brought. Was
it so? They had gone so utterly, so
completely, and she was happy now
In hcr owu harmless way, far luland,
out of nil reach of storm and reef. She
wns still looking vaguely, half wistfully, nt the flre when her door-bell rang
und some one hnd entered the room nnd
was hurrying to her side.
"Aunt Faith," snid a girlish, It-emu-
loin voice, "I've come to ask you lo
help me. Mother snid you hnd suffered
like this once nnd you had learned to
forget, nud 1 thought perhaps you
could show mc the way."
t'nllli looked dowu upon the slight
figure crouched there, sobbing, nud luld
her hnnd gently upon the brown hend,
but she did uot understand about the
suffering.
"What Is It, Grace?" she asked.
"O, It's Phil!" she cried. "He doesn't
care for me nuy more. lie's taking
Jennie Thompson now, and I can't bear
It. Mother said other women had to
bear such tilings, but she'd always
been happy, and I could come to you.
You could help me," she said, looking
up appealing!}*. "You could teach me to
forget."
"Yes," said Faith, slowly.
Then it came back lo her, all her own
llttlo story, and n dim, broken memory
of llie lirst heartache and her own loug-
lug to forget.
"Poor Utile girl," whispered Faith,
stroking the beautiful muss of golden
hair. "How was It I learned to forget?
Lot me think. Yes, I remember now.
Wait a mluute, dear. I will show
you."
Faith slipped out of the room and
soon returned, bringing three rolls of
very broad crocheted lace.
"Can you crochet, Grace?"
"Not very much," said Grace, won-
derlngly.
"Well, I will teaeb you.   Thia la the
very way I learned to forger. The
needle sli|>s in and out, ami the sunlight nnd firelight shine on ir, and the
lace grows aud Is so pretty, and ii
brings comfort. When I began I
couldn't se the needle—O, how long ago
that is!—for the tears. Thut wns when

These ure the three lolls I did in tlie
throe years, one for each. They are
yellow now, you see."
Faith opened one nud spread It out.
it was un intricate pattern, uud very
broad. "It's hard to do," she suid, "Iiul
that Is all the better for the forgetting.

Faith handled lhe rolls over and over,
lost for » minute in the associations
whicli they revived. Her niece seemed
lo have forgotten her own grief I'm* the
time, and was observing her aunt curiously as she bent over the lnce.
"That's a fern pattern." said Faith.
"It's very pretty."
Faith sat silent for a time, smoothing out the creases of the lnce utHl
drawing ii out io its length, li seemed
to have the effect of nn cnclinnler's
wand, for it summoned old faces and
scenes at will, and Faith grew blind to
the Utile room nud the needs of her
guest. At Inst Grace moved Impatiently.
"Yes, yes," said Faith, like one awakening, "to forget. Tills is llie way.
Here Is the old pattern. 1 will teach
you."
She bustled about, Hurling thread and
needle, sealed herself al.,l.i*uce's side,
drew the thread through her lingers,
nnd began her work.
"There." she said after a minute.
"Tio you see how it's done*' It isn't
hard.  Try it."
Grace took the needle helplessly. "Do
you think I could forget si:, aunt?" she
asked hesitatingly, -t
"1 did," said Faith, j-g
Grace had lvranicii'ni lier lask and
made one or Iwo awkward motions

"It's Phil!" exclaimed Grace, spring,

"Grace!" said (lie recreant lover,
standing awkwardly by the door, after
Aunt Faith had admitted 111iii and had
retreated toward lier chair. There

Grace caught her hut and went lo
him without another word.
"We'll try the crocheting some other

'Then seeing her aunt's liulf-dnzed expression, ns If she hardly understood
this new development of nffuii-s, she
ran back und kissed her. Grace's face

Josef nt once went to the driver's aid

Mr. Macbeth nud Billy 1'iiikeri.rii

When they were in the sircei the detective said:
"Why did you take lhat library

"1 have an idea." Macbeth answered,
"and I want to go al once to the public

An examination of ihe card showed

Ten  keyless  nnd   thief-proof   street
letter-boxes will soon be placed iu Wash-
ingluu for practical test.   The box Is
the Invention of Count ill Brnzzl, Italy's
commissioner to the World's Fuir, who

It  will   be Impossible   for any one,
] either collectors or thieves, to abstract

letters he collects.   They are not seen
1 nor handled by nny ono from the time
they ure dropped into the box until they
reach the clerk who stamps them ln thu
post office.
The boxes are equipped with combination locks, operated by a small, flat
. knob, but this lock cannot be opened
unless the loiter carrier's bag, locked

regular order, lie cannot skip one
box, for if lie does the combination between the bug nnd the next bux Is not
complete, and he would have lo return
to the box he had missed.
When the bag Is adjusted the collector turns the knob of the lock, both box
und bug nre opened simultaneously and
the letters drop unseen Into the bag.
Then, before the bag can be removed
the knob must again lie turned, locking
both bag and box. and the collector proceeds to the next box.
At the postoffice he turns the bag over
to the proper clerks, who adjust the
bag to a device similar to that on the

OPPOSITION.
UNJUST
An extraordinary rumor is in circula-
ti ui that the Honorable Mr. Silton,
minlsterof the intciioi, has j lined forces with t|ie Victoria, Vancouver &
Eastern railway, to prevent Mr. Corbtn
(torn obtarning a chatter to build a rail-
road up the Kettle Kiver Valley into
lioundary country.
If such alliance bc possible between
a minister of lhu crov.-n ai rl a railway
corporation, it cannot be viewed in any
other I ght than a monsifous breach of
trust on thc part of Mr. Sifton, The
Englishman and Canadians who have
braved the terrors ot t re wilderness,
and settled in the Kottle River valley,
and developed its virgin re-jources, are
not the men to sit idly by and allow any
set of (barter mongers, aided by tbe C.
P. R. and Mr. Sifton, to rcb them of lhe
(mi's of long, patient years of toil and
waiting.
The policy of the Canadian Pacific
Railway is lo create a vast railroad monopoly, to reserve to itself the rich re-
rources o! the Ii umlary and Kettle
River commies, to levy till the tiibule
that the industry of that country will
stand, aud to keep far away all compe
titors that would cheapen the cost of
living to the minor, to the farmer, and
to the tradesman.
Mining experts of world-wide experience arc unanimous in the belief that the
region drained by the Kettle river is the
richest gold and copper country in tho
world. In the same country are ten
thousand fertile va leys as fiuitiul as a
mothers love, needing only lo be tickled
with the hoc lo burst into a harvest.
Tbe farms, the gardens, the orch ;rds
und the pasture lands will feed the
hardy minerr. who win the gold from the
rocks in the mountains. An army of
toilers will reap tat rewards from the
wealth stored in these mountains, and
Canada and tie world will be enriched
bv the golden stream whioh will iollow
from this country. Hives of industry
will be scattered along the North Fork
of Kettle liver, alsrg the various tributary streams ol lioundary creek, along
Rock creek and in fact from Christina
to Okanogan lakes. But let it bo known
to Mr. Silton, to the Canadian Pacific
railroad, to Mr, Maxwell and Mr. Mc-
Inness, to th-j Victoria board of trade,
to the ^charter mongers of Vancou
ver that the men who have discovered this country and who bave developed its resources, the men who are
proud of being its . pioneers, and the
men who are creating for their coun'ry
a great and prosperous career, wi'I not
({derate for one single moment tbe establishment of a vast railroad to the monopoly. By all means let every possible facility to be given to the Canadian
Pacific to build through the Boundary
country. Let the dominion and provincial legislature subsidise a Canadian
ro»d if they needs must, but there must
be no closing up of tbe other avenues of
commerce by {which Ibis country can
be made prosperous. The citizens oi
the Kettle River country on the Canadian side are free Dorn Britons and Ihey
will allow no Chinese wall to be built
for the benefit of the Canadian Pacific
railroad.
D. C. Corbin, to whose indefatigable
industry and enterprise British Columbia owes so much, will build into the
Kettle River country despite |lhe coast
opposition. in the charter he seeks
from the dominion government be asks
that a clause bo inserted compelling
bim to haul the ores of thia country at
the same cost to ail smelters built at
Columbia River points, whether they
are on tbe Canadian or American side.
Mr. Corbin agrees to deliver ores of
Greenwood, pf 'he Summit, or of any-
other '.amp at thosau.- rate to smcltets
at Northport, Nelson, '11 '.i! or Robson
Could anything be more just or equitable? Nothing, even, could bc more
desirable!
The Kettlo River Valley railroad will
be in touch with three different transcontinental railroads and will enable the
traders and the settlers of thc Boundary country to procure their merchandise and supplies from all parts of Canada, east and west, at competitive rates,
pmelter and railroad ,-ates monopolized
by the Canadian Pacific would hamper
industry, mar development, and cut off
a thousand opportunities for the nnner,
farmer, mechanic and capitalists. Competing smelters, competing lines of railroads wi'I give tremendous impetus to
the development of tho Kettle River
Country. Prospectors, miners, farmers
and traders will reap a rich harvest ot
contentment and prosperity, and Canada and the world will be astonished at
and enriched by the ireasurc which tbis,
marvelous country will then  produce,
The people c-f Grand Forks, Greenwood and the other mining camps of
the Ke'tle River country do not yet
fully realize the bbght* that the machi
prions of tie Cinadian Pacifies p-es-r.t
nrdicv wctjld  H|QrCt  if successful.    Mr
Corbin's Kettle River Valloy railroad ]
would be run entirely on thc American
side of the line, and would to* ch Canadian teiiitory at such points as Carson
and Midway. As a result, prosj eroes
towns would ^rowandtlourish j-jst across
the line on the American side while the
present established centers would languish, lacking trade and commercial la-
cilitics.
And all this would be done, not in thc
interest of Canada, anl of the Canadian
people, but in tbe interest ol a few charter mongers, residents of Victoria and
Vancouver bncktil up by the stockholders of the Canadian Pacific railroad.
There is not a mining camp between
the Columbia and Onanogan whoso industry and enterprise would not be
taxed to e cess and all in order to swell
the revenue of Canadian Pacific security holders who dwell in palaces ia Lin-
don, Paris and Berlin, and pay little
heed to the needs of tho miner or the
farmer Irom whom the management of
the Canadian Pacific desire lo extract
the last pound cl flesh,
There must be r,u sacrificing cf the
interests of the common people cf British Columbia in order tc swell tbe revenue ol tilled or untitled nobodies in
Europe. It Is too late in the day and
generation to try such a game as that.
Any minister who attempts taich a
wrong must b: hurled from power, condemned and execrated. Toe relusal of
a donriiiun charter to .Mr. Coibin to
build into any and all of the mining
camps of the Boundary would be an act
ol barb..rism wor'.hy only oi a government conducted by tyrants and knaves.
Thc cry of Canada for the Canadians is
a poor, paltry argument to advance in
support of such a retrograde policy.
We all want a free, piogrcssive and
prosperous Canada, but such a Canada
will not bc created by shutting out railroad competitors aod allowing the Canadian Pacilic a free hand in levying exorbitant tiibute on Canadians, no matter whether ihey dwell by the St. Law-
ence or on tbe banks of the beautiful
Kettle river.
Tiiii action of the Victoria board of
trade in telegraphing to the 11. C. representatives at Ottawa, to use their influence against the granting of a chatter to
Mr. Corbin is deserving of the severest
condemnation by every resident of
the Boundary country, and it is gratifying to knew tbat the action of the Grand
Foiks Board of Trade, in establishing a
boycott against Victoria and Vancouver
is endorsed by nine-teiitbs of tbc people of the Boundary country. And it is
still more gratifying to lie able to announce, thai witnin less than six months
time, In lhe event that we are cheated
out of transportation facilities on account of this meascly action of the coast
cities, the Boundary country wiil be a
blank to both Victoria and Vancouver,
as far as bos ness is concerned,

Trade Indorsed.
At the meeiing of the Boundary
Creek Mining and Commercial Association, held last Wednesday evoning, the
resolutions adopted by the Grand Forks
boa d of trade were the chief subjyct of
consideration. Mr. Thos. Hardy strongly critxised the course adopted by the
coast board of tradi in opposing the
Corbin charter, as the coast cities would
be benefited by competition lines entering this district. After con-iderable
discussion between Messrs. Harlan, Law,
McFarland and Pnelan, the association,
while heartily agreeing wiih ths resolutions passed by the Grand Forks board
of trade, decided that a boycott on
coast wholesale houses would be un-
buiiiness like, inasmuch as it would have
a tending to interfere with the liberty Of
the local merchants.

who are in a position to know, state that
in the event of a charter not being

■A New Deal Throughout.
Workmen have been busy all week in
making changes in the interior and exterior of the "old ing store" occupied by
the Grand Forks Mercantile company,
and as a result "the old place don't seem
the same as it used to." Oa entering
the store you are greeted by new faces,
new goods and in fact new everything
including business methods. Mr. McQueen, thc genial manager, has already
made a very favorable impression by his
pleasant manner and business like
methods, and it will only be a shorl time
before the Grand Forks Mercantile
company will be a household word
th roughout the valley.
He Could-But He Wont.
The oflice cat might tell how two
Grand Foiks business men, one of
whom operates a ranch a few miles below town, went out to said ranch
after a load of vegetables, and forgot to
put tho tailboard in the wagop. How
they drove home and on their arrival
there discovered that the wagon was
empty—but he wont. For Iurther information v.*c would refer you to either
Ch.is. VanNcsi or Joe Wiseman at the
Grand Forks hotel.
The Dead Has Arisen.
F. I. C. Hagen, one of the owners of
the Christina claim up the North Fotkp
and who was thought drowned, was
an arrival in the city last Thursday,
having come from Spokane where he
has been for the last few months.
Mr, llagen says that be was surprised
on his artival heto to learn that it had
been reported that he was drowned in
Idaho, as he had not been in tbat state
lately.

The   Residents   of    the    Boundary
Country Indignant st Outside
interference.
The Associated Press dispatch from
Victoria published in last Saturday
morning's Spokesman-Review statin*;
that the board of trade of that city bad
telegraphed the It. C. members at Ottawa to use tbeir influence against the
granting of a charter to Mr. Corbin, etc.,
created almost a panic in Grand Forks,
and was the theme of conversation for
everybody. Indignation ran high and
if a number ot tbe Victoria board of
trade should bave happened to have
been in the city at tbe time it would
bave kept bim busy to evade the wrath
of the infuriated citizens of Grand Forks
and vicinity.
A meeting of the Grand Forks Board
of Trade was at once called and the following resolutions, which are self explanatory, were unanimously adopted:
Whereas, information having reached
this city to the effect that the board of
trade of Victoria had wired to British Columbia representatives at Ottawa opposing the granting to D. C. Corbin of char-
t er for which be is applying for tbe construction or a line of a railway from a
point near the boundary line at Cascade
Citv to Carson, and from a point near
Midway up Boundary creek a distance
of 20 miles; and,
Whereas, the grounds taken for such
action are tbat it would divert trade to
the United States and be detrimental to
the interests of the province; and,
Whereas, such argument is groundless
and not well taken, when in fact the
building of said line into this dis'rict
would prove a saving to us of thousands
of dollars in freight charges alone, besides giving us prompt delivery, and
would be the means ol diverting to coast
points a greater propottion of the trade
from this district, as goods could be delivered Irom those points as quickly if
not quicker than they are now from Spokane and other American points, and
Whereas, the securing of a charter to
the said railway is of vital importance
to the prosperity and development of
Boundary Creek and Kettle River country, thereby giving competitive transportation facilities; and
Whereas, it is by this road that we are
guaranteed the construction tbis year of
a railway through the Kettle River dis-
itrict, which is undoubtedly rich in agricultural and mineral lands, but which at
-present, owing to the lack ot adequate
transportation failities, are practically
.worthless.   Be it therefore
Resolved, That unless the Victoria
-board of trad; and the cit'uen of Vancouver withdraw their opposition to the
Kettle River Valley railway charter the
Grand p'orks board of trade will request
the merchants, mining and mill men of
tJUis part of the country to withhold their
trade from the wholesale merchants of
Victoria and Vancouver. B; it therefore Iurther
Resolved, That a petition be prepar
ed, to be presented to the ranchets, pros
pectors, miners and other residents of
tbis district, pledging themselves to with
draw their trade from any merchants
who purchase goods in either Victoria
or Vancouver.   Be it further
Resolved, That a copy of these resolution, together with a copy of the proceedings of this meeting, bc sent to the
Victoria and Vancouver boards of trade.
The secretary was instructed to com.
municate with the Boundary Creek Mining and Commercial association of
Greenwood, advising that body of the
action taken by the Grand Forks Board
of trade, and asking them to take some
similar action.
Two agreements were also prepared,
one to be presented to tbe merchants of
the Boundary country requesting them,
unless the Victoria Board of Trade rescinded its nction, to withhold their business Irom coast cities. The other to be
presented to tbe ranchers, prospectors,
taken in this matter lo be selfish, ungen-
tleuianly, uubusincss-iike, ?.nd mean.
The ground taken by you that it w 11 divert trade to the United States, is a very
slim excuse for your opposition. We
already buy goods very larg.-ly "in Victoria and stii-i thein in hand to this country. The wholesale bouses in Victoria
understand this. It is clear that we
could i*buy our goods at Victoria and
ship tbem in tbis way over the Kettle
River Valley railway, just the saute as
we are doing at tbe present time. *A'e
feel in tbis country that if Mr. Coibin
fails to get bis charter tbat it will ba on
account of Ihe opposition Irom the Coast
cities- This will jjstly cause a leering
ot intense bitter.iess towards Victoria
and Vancouver. It looks to a "man up
a tree" as though Victoria was sticking
her nose into our business in a very disagreeable way. We are not asking you
to give us anything, and wo led pretty
sure we would not get it if we did. Now
if you cannot do us any good, there is no
reason why you should get in and hurt
us, and you may rest assured that if you
continue tbis policy you will make an
enemy out of ths whole country. Both
the provincial and dominion government, have always refused to assist Ul,
Now. since we are in a position to assi.t
ourselves, it seems you are trying to
blockade us in tbis.
Now, gentlemen, I ask you in the name
of the citizens of Grand Forks district,
to reconsider this resolution and instruct
your representatives at Ottawa to give
us this charier. Please bear in mind
tbat competition in railways has been
given to Trail Creek, Rossland and thc
Slocan. We are certainly entitled to the
same thing. It is generally concoeded
that the English, Canadian and American people are lovers of fair play. I
would like to ask the B >ard of Trade at
Victoria, if they consider ihis fair play?

THAT LETTER.
Peter McCallum's Opinion of Mayor Manly
—Honors are Now Easy.
Grand Fokks, B. C, Feb. 23, 1898.—
[F. H. McCarter, E iitor and Proprietor Grand Forks Miner.]—Sir. Will
you kindly allow me space in your paper to correct some misrepresentations
made in your last issue in the article
headed "A Lively Time "
Ex-Mayor Manly stated that to his
personal knowledge he knew of one deal,
involving many thousand dollars, had
been declared off for no other reason
than Peter McCallum had written to the
bank of Rossland for the purpose of
tying up the city funds and getting ihe
city "balled up" in a worse shape than
at present."
I gave the bank at Rossland no instructions whatever regarding* the city
funds, but merely gave the notice regarding the result ot the recent election that should have been given by ex-
Mayor Manly or his official staff, clerk
and treasurer. Being prevailed upon
by my friends to accept the nomination
for mayor and being the choice of the
electors at the poles and more especial-
ly in view of the countless and unpardonable blunders of omission and co n-
mission made by the said offiyials during their term of office, 1 considered it
my duty to the rate payers and electors
to give 10 the bank the notice referred
to, and accordingly I sent a notice ol
which tbe following is a true c ipy:
G«ANn I'onxs, B. C Feb . 3rd. 1898,
Bank ot Montreal, Rossland, B, C:
Deab Sib. On the I3th day of January nlto.,
I was at tlie regular city election for llie city of
.Graird Forks eieeled mayor, as successor to John
A. Manly. I did on the 17th ol January duly
take the oath of ofiice and sit with the ileu-ly
elected council. Part of the old council, including ex-Mayor Manly arc trying to hold
xifljce on the ground of some trifflittg
tcchnicalties, bhould any t-licqiter* or
orders bc drawn ou thc municipal funds, please
take notice of tlie fiu-ia ami govern yourselves
accordingly        Yours truly
Peter T. McCallum,
Now sir, jrour readers will understand
tbat my object in giving this information
to tbc bank was not tp get tbe city
"balled up" in a worse shape than at
present, but to protect the city's funds
and to do my duty with a view to the
best interest ot the rate payers. It is indeed very unfortunate that such a small
act ot duty should alone be the reason
of such a big deal being declared off.
However, it is scarcely surprising that
tbe merest trifle should interfere with
one of these deals, when we remember
that for the last lour years tbat I have
kbown of these big deals that have
been coming on one after another in rapid sussession and with one single exception like the dews of a June morning
have passed away into invisable vapor.
Tbat one excoption is a marked event
in the history of Grand Forks, and the
contracting party will no doubt testify
that he has long and often rued the day
of bis big deal, perhaps because some
notice that should have becn given was
withheld until after the deal was consummated.
Mr. Manly says that "Peter McCallum, Hay and his crowd had sent their
petition to Donald Graham, also a tele

and thc latter in the hospital nursing a

limned ately on their arrival hone
arrangements were commenced for the
resuming of work on the Pathfinder, anil
as a result a force consisting .of fourteen
men left for the company's mine on
Pathfinder bill, and active operations
were started Tuesday morning under
the direction of Mr. Parkinson.
At present three shifts are being
worked; two in the new shaft and one ill
tbe old shaft.
A complete plant ol machinery is soon
to be installed on this property and the
present force will be increased from
time to time, as fast as **|it can be work
ed to an advantage.
WELLINGTON    CAMP.
The Winnipeg, Golden Crown and Other
Properties Looking Well
Mr. John Rogers came down from
Wellington camp last Tuesday where he
has been nearly all winter getting ready
for spring operations on a number of
promising properties bo is interested in
tbat localiry. He proposes to do the
assessment work of several claims on
one property, which will enable bim to
make a better showing.
At the Winnipeg they are cross cutting at tbe 100-foot level and they feel
confident that they have found the "lost
lead." Five tons of ore recently shipped from this propeity to ibe smelter
averaged over £74 a ton.
The machinery at the Golden Crown
was started up this week, tbe whistle
blowing for the first time last Monday.
A new strike has been mado on this property wbich is superior to anything yet
unearihed.
Last Sunday afternoon Scott Rose encountered a couger while returning to
uamp from a visit to tue stage station
on the iunumit. Scott was riding leisurely along, when ull-of-a-sudden tbe old
mare he was riding shied and lil-out at
two forty gait. On looking back to ascertain it possible thc cause uf tbis ac-
tiveness on the par of the mare, Scott
discovered n couger in clos; proximity
coming at full tilt. That settled it and
the way he put the "bud" to that old
m tie was a caution. On reaching the
Golden Crown a party was organizeti
to go and cap.ure the conger but owing
to the la crK-b, ol the hour tbe seatch
was given up.
miners  and   residents   of  the district, I §ram> etc.; the petition had only been
agreeing not  to  purchase  any goods  signed  by a lot  of   sore  heads,  etc "
bought in coast cities and to not patron
ize any merchant who purchased goods
from either Victoria o*r Vancouver.
Committees were appointed to circulate these agreements, nnd after a general discussion condemning the action
of tbe coast, in which everyone joined;
tbe meeting then adjourned.

To tbe President of the Board of Tmde,
Victoria, B.C.:
My Dear Sir:- I have just noticed
inthe Associated Press dispatches that
tbe Victoria Board of Trade bas passed
a resolution opposing the granting of
tbe charter for the Kettle River railway.
Tbe people in this district to say the
least, are very much surprised Bt this
Action on your part. It cannot be possl

tli.< facts of tbe case.
Now, the fact is, If Mr, Corbin does
not get this charter he will build a line
of railway running from Northport
close to and paralelle with the boundary
line. In this case he would tip Cascade
Cily, Carson and Midway, which are on
the boundary line. This would bu Id up
a number of prosperous towns and cities
close to the boundary line, which would
na-urally draw" a great deal of trade from
B Hndary Cre. Jf and fettle riyer cotjn-
try.
On the pther haptj, if he is permitted
ft} build thr m,-h Canada it will build up
tovnt and 0 ties in this district, develop
the mines and plape tbs district in a
pospr-roifs cqndition. V.'j would like
tu bave you cqisidrrr the fact tbat we
hi-re been waititii for years to get
tuasportatiqn, so we could ship our ore.
No r .ilway company has ever offered to
build in here, unless they were heavily
subidised by tbe government, or the
people, We are abundantly able to take
care of ourselves in this country. Ail
we ask is that the government let us
alone. We can give several railroads
plenty of tonnage to make tbem pay a
large per cent, on the cost of construe*
fjpt).   Wj-jjnsitjer the action yju have
Had not the ex-mayor confessed
that be is "somewhat of a liar." I should
bave attributed this statement to an
overdrawn stretsh of imagination, for 1
took no part in sending either a petition
or a teleg-ahm.   I know nothing of any
Cetition or telegram being sent to bim
y Hay and his crowd or anyone else
and bis crowd, but I undarstand that a
petition to the attorney general wus
signed by a majority of the electors, and
it is indeed a sore reflection on tbe ex-
mayors official career to diicover at the
end of bis term that the majority of his
patrens are a lot of sore beads.
I do not propose bere to discuss the
merits or demerits of the best single
hand liar in town. I have no doubt tint
a man whose reputation for truth and
integrity extends from one end of the
dominion to the other, as does that of
Mr. Hay's is quite capable of proving to
the satisfaction of his accuser that "there
are others." I am not aware that Mr.
Hay intended to use bis influence in fa
vor of the electors' petition at Victoria
as Mr. Manly says he did. I never asked lnm do anyt'.ung in the mater, I am
not aware that anyone else ever askeu
him to do so, but I heard him say that
be did not intend to take nny part in
muni.ipal matters while iu Vic-oria unless it was the unanimous wish of the
people that he shoud do so in order to
save expanse. Bat it would not be surprising that he should change hit mini
when he finds that he bail no sooner
turned his back then low, mean, underhanded, contemptible bac'tbiting was
resor'ed to for keeping up a sectional
strife.
In conclusion I may say thit any person who poses as a liar and admits to be
such, is in my opinion a low ignorant
character, not above being concerned
in plots and conspiracies against tbe
peace and prosperity of his country,
whom the public should r-ject with contempt and deijiion, and is unworthy of
the respect of any community.

A Strike on the Golden Crown.
W. H. Collins, managing director of
the Golden Crown Mining company,
who are operating the mineral claim by
that name in Wellington camp, was a
visitor in Grand Forks yesterday and
reports everything moving along as
smooth as clock work at the mine. The
steam-hoistcr and compressor, recently
installed on tbe property, was set in motion last Monday and is working to perfection. Last Wednesday afternoon a
new strike was made in the tunnel,
which he considers superior to any yot
made on the property. Mr. Collins is
very much annoyed ovor the action taken by the coast people in trying to keep-
Mr. Corbin from getting a charter, !Vid
expresses thc belief tbat unless he
is permitted to build through the Boundary country that nine out of every ten
companies operating in this district will
be forced to suspend until such times as
the district is given railway transportation.

A Valuable Dog.
McCool has a d ig. There is nothing
strange about this as nearly every man
in Grand Forks is tlie owner of a dog
or a dog's sister. McCool thinks more
of this dog than he does of his mothe-
in-law and he has a right to. It is an
educated "cur" and a money maker and
nets his owner about a dollar and a
half a day. M-..C disposes of two or
three loads of hay daily, to his various
customers in the city, and every time he
drives on to thc scales to have the hay
weighed Mr, Dot* crawls under the wagon and is weighed too, but when the
empty wagon is weighed, it is different,
as the dog is onto his job, and is rustling
for .1 stray bone like all other dogs. As
hay is worth fiom a cent and three-quarters to tv.*o cents a pound and the dog,
which is above the average size, wiegh-
ing from sixty-five to seventy five
pound-*, you can readily see why Mac
highly prizes Mb dog. Jim Ree :er, the
statician of the city, who has been keeping "tab" on Mac and his dog, is authority for tne statement that the dog haa
earned McCool $165 13 during the wi..
ter.

Uu years old, were discharged In Vol-

cutting up in tho "blubber room,"
"down scraps" and "trying out." supplemented by n ten hours' pull in the
bonis every other dny, poor food, ninl
rough, If not brutal, treatment, from
the officers.
So, as we stood tbat morning on the
■Jetty, clinking the money In our pockets and watching our old ship disappear
In the-oiling, we felt, Indeed, "monarchs
of all we surveyed."
At Inst she wus hull down, and turning away with sighs of relief, we cluttered onee more up tbe Ill-paved street
to the Consul's office, where we lnnl
been pnid off, and Inquired of him
when we oould take passage for home.
We learned, much to our disappointment, thnt I here were no ships in port
bound for the States, nor would there
be uny, except nn occasional whaler,
for six months to come.
"Wc must resign ourselves to the Inevitable," said Jack, "aud the uext
question is, Where are we going to
slop?"
The Consul assured us that an American named Henderson kept tbe only
decent place In lown. outside of the
rough sriilnr boarding bouses, and recommended us Iii go I here. We found
Henderson a good fellow, who gave ns
n Urge room with two beds In It, and
nfter seeing our chests safely slowed
nway, we strolled mil to look at tbe
town, nnd Incidentally to get work.
After walking about the eity lor an
lnm* or two, we descended to the lirst
op eoiiiim-i-eiril street to look for work.
Ilelng young, persistent and fairly well
educated, we were lucky enough to lind
•employment wiili two English firms,
branch houses of Loudon and Liverpool
traders. Next morning we went to
work, and for a couple of months our
lives moved otl, tranquilly enough. In
the evenings after Btipper we smoked
our clgarlttos, and managed, with the
aid of tin old grammar, to learn n little
Spanlsb. Occasionally, on moonlight
nlglils, we walked out through the
town, bpt we never went fnr, ns Henderson warned us tbat it was no uu-
eoninion thing for a stranger to lie
found in the outlying parts of the city
with his pockets rifled and a dagger
wound In his breast.
Oue evening my superintendent discovered that ti mistake had been made

error. So, without delay, I hurried to
the jetty, embarked, and In a half horn*
climbed up lhe side of the l'almerston.
My business detained me longer thun
. had anticipated, and it was fully I)
o'clock before I stepped to the side. As
the title wns on the ebb, my boatman
had to land meat the neatest point, nud
I figured that I had about four miles to
walk home.
It was moonlight, bul here and there
the dark shadows seemed to invite the
assassin, trad as I hurried on, I cast
many nn anxious glance behind me. I
had reached the outskirts of the city
nnd was congratulating myself, when
Buddenly, from under an overhanging
"bnlcon," a woman darted forth and
clutched my ni-in, crying out In piteous
accents!
"Por el nmor de Dlosl   Senor Anter-
leiuio!  Por el amor de Dlosl"  (For tbe
love of (Jotl, Senor Amerlonn')
"One   qulere   conmlgo,   Senorita?"
(What do you want wllh me, lady?) I
replied, as I stepped under the solitary lump on the corner uml looked at

near by and she wanted me to go with
her to his assistance, Why she wanted
me to accompany lier, I could not understand; therefore 1 asked her why
she did not appeal to her own people.
She replied tbat she and bet* father
•were strangers, who had but recently
come from Santiago, und Hint there
were so many "liidrones," or robbers,
among her own people Hint she dared
not trust them, and In a still inoi-e urgent tone, begged me to go with be/.
Truly, "he who hesitates Is lost," Tolas 1 thought of Henderson's warning,
the lateness of the hour, nnd the woman's singular persistence, and faltered,
undeeld'.'d, she dropped her mantilla,
aud In nn instant every scruple had
vanished. The light from the moon Illumined a face perfect lu Its classic

As the moon shone out In radiant
beauty, ray blood for u moment seemed
to freeze In my veins, for there, before
me, gleaming brightly In the muoullglit,
nnd winding like n serpent among the
doddering crosses and mouldering
graves of the Pantheon, was the path
that led to our destination.
The low-lying wall of the Pantheon
lay directly In front of me, nnd my
guide quickly tripped up the steps
which led over It, beckoning for ine to
follow. Though loath lo go further,
yet the wondrous beauty of the girl
held me as lu a spell, and step by step
I advanced until 1 stood upon the top
of the wall.
As I looked downward 1 though 1

mounted tbe steps, and reaching forwnrd, took my band, saying, "Porque?"
(Why?)
"Porque no me voyl" (Because I shall

to drag me forward, but. Ignoring her

With one glance at the girl, whose

at my utmost speed toward the city,
1 heard a mini's hoarse shout behind

"Freak night on n railroad train."
The conductor of the express for New
York, which leaves the Reading terminal   every   morning  five   minutes after
midnight, spoke Blowly.    "There's uot
many people know what  freak night
Is; hardly anyone hut we conductors,
and then mighty few of us.   But it's a
fact that certain trains ou certain days
t>r the week have -freak nights.'    It's
so regular tbat you know when to expect It.   It's sure to come.
"It's ibis way," continued tbe conductor. "On this midnight to New York
emigrant tickets good on the smoking
car are Issued at a reduced rate. Six
nights of the week we have just the
poorer people that wait all day, Bit In
tbe ear all night and ure waked In New
York at 4 o'clock in tbe morning, all
for the opportunity of going over for u
half dollar cheaper. They're tbe kind
of people you see everywhere nud anywhere on the streets. But on one night
of the week, just as regular ns death
or taxes, all the queer llsh that are
traveling around seem lo gather together on one train. They are people
j oil would stop and look ul when they
passed you. They are very fill, very
thin »r very drunk| tunny looking people, ugly people; In fact, 'freaks.' They
never travel without ench oilier. You
don't see one freak In a cur load of ordinary people. All are plain, everyday
people, or else all are freaks. It's got
so that I can predict whnt u train loud
Is going lo be. If I see one or Iwo ordinary people getting on, why I know
It's an ordinary night; but If I see one
of these freaks, then I know I'll huve
only freaks. Tbey generally eome Snt-
urdny or Monday nights, bill there Is
no i-ule. Sometimes we won't havo any
for a month, mid then we'll huve three
or four 'freak' nights together.   In 1890
I counted we had between forty and
fifty—about one night a week, you see.
If you'll eome into the smoker I'll show
you, for it's freak ulght to-ulght."
There were five people only iu tbe
ear. Freaks don't carry heavy baggage
ns a rule. Away up In front a stout
mnu was embracing a friend, and both
were siuglng the German welcome
iong, "Halleel Hallow!" tor nil It wns
ivortb. "You don't see anything pecu-
iur in that maybe, but I'll show you."
'Stop that singing," lie said, loudly.
•There's a woman in the em- nnd r»he
wauls lo sleep." -Bnin men turned
■round. Tbey were unmistakably
Irish. "And singing a German song,
:oo," chuckled the conductor. Two
>thers in the car hnd "freak" written
ill over them. Oue was a man who
mist have been six Inches over six feet
:all. He was thin and dressed In rusty
thick. He had turned over the seat
iliead of hlm and, by pulling his feel
ip, had elevated his knees, Hilu and
jaunt, two feet above his bead. The
ither was a strange looking foreigner,
remarkable for bis ugliness. Belonging
*.o some Eastern race, lie wus dressed
n ordinary clothes, which did uot fit
ilm. His face was pilled uml u harelip
Irew his mouth Into uu evil position.
Kl tirst glance he seemed to have no
lose, so small, so sunken wus It,
'Wouldn't like to nieei hlm on a coiiu-
;ry road at night." snid^lie conductor.
There wns one other person iu the cur,
i woman, one of those small, swarthy
Italians who patronize lhe owl trains
io often. "No, there's nothing freak*
sh alMtut that woman on first sight.
Rut eome up here with me." He led
:he way to the woman. "Look there,"
ie suid. On one niin the woman held
i baby, on the oilier arm another baby;
>n the seat a third baby. They were
xiplets. "So you see It's freak night,"
laid the conductor, genially. "It's a
food thing -for you you dld'ut get in
:hat smoking car."
An Inquiry mnoug the conductors of
:rol!ey ears hud revealed the curious
!act that the same conditions prevail
ihere.   They, too, have "freak uights,"
II though but ouce a month ou the aver-
ige. Just ns on llie railroad, the freaks
travel only nt night in the "owl" cars.
They are never seen witli ordinary people, but flock together. Although they
have this affinity for each other, their
neighbors' peculiarities never hnve any
interest for them. They have occupied
ihe center of Interest too long; they iiie-
loo accustomed to being wondered at.
So they never wonder themselves.—

Something  About This   Strange  and
Ibctul Plant.
The bread-fruit tree is a native oi
Southern Asia, and the Pacific Islands
of the Archipelago. Iu appearance it
resembles somewhat the wild chest*
uut; It grows to the height of forty or
fifty feet, has dark-green leaves, many
of them two feet In length, which are
deeply divided Into pointed lobes.
Hidden among the great leaves the
bread-fruit grows; It is a sorosls, is
nearly spherical, often weighs four or
more pounds, and has a thick, yellow
rind. The fruit Is the chief food of the
South Sea Islanders—they seldom eat
a meal without it. The eatable part
lies between Ihe rind and the core, and
when fully ripe ls yellow and juicy.
It ls belter for food before it is matured, und the natives gnllier it when
Hie pulp Is while.
Before It is ready for table use It
must be roasted, when it looks like
wheal lirend, and is both palatable and
nutritious. I'sually the fruit Is cut
Into three or four slices and rooftted or
baked In an oven.
Frequently the people of a village
Join In milking a huge oven, In whieh
several hundred bread-fruits may be
linked at one time. Thus rhey nre all
supplied wllh bread without II costing
any of Ihem much labor; prepared In
this way, Ihe bread will keep for
weeks.
The bread-fruit Is In season eight
months of the year; when the season
finally draws to a close, Ihe Inst fruits
are gathered and made Into a sour
paste called "ninhej," Tills pnsle will
keep good for months, and Is mad..
Into balls, wrapped In lenves, and
bilked just ns needed.
Bread ls not the only product of the
bread-fruit tree; from It cement, cloth,
tinder and lumber are also obtained.
A glutinous, milky juice oozes from lhe
trunk of the tree, which makes an excellent cement when boiled with co-
coanut oil. From the fibrous Inner
bark a kind of coarse cloth Is mnde,
end the big leaves make good towels.
The lumber Is light, of a rich yellow
color, anil Is used for btiihMug houses
and many other purposes. Besides all
this, the dried blossoms are used as
tinder when fires are kindled.—Philadelphia Times.

The likes nnd dislikes of nnimnls are
unaceouiiinble. Some horses take a
violent prejudice against certain meu,
even though they ure treated kindly
nnd though the mini's moral character
is fair. Between llie ent and dog there
is a violent aiiHpntliy which, however,
Is not Infrequently displayed by mutual
respect, nnd even affection lu exceptional cases, The elephant bates dogs
mid nits. Cows dislike tlogs, and so
do sheep, nnd, what seems stranger,
are particularly partial to bears. On
the other hand, horses loathe and detest camels and refuse to be decently
civil to them after long acquaintance.
They even hate the place where camels have been, wbich seems to be carry,
lug the race prejudice.to nn extreme.
Evolutionists nre accustomed to explain these instinctive feelings as survivals of ancestral enmities tinting
from the days when one race preyed
on the other. This would account for
the natural enmlly of cows to dogs,
for when cows were wild they were
obliged to defend their calves from
bands of predatory wild' dogs. Hilt
why should the horse like dogs'/ It Is
but the other day lhat the wild horses
organized to defend their colts from
wolves on our Western pradi-les. Whnt
could the ancestral horse have had
against ihe ancestral camel of n mill-
Ion yours ago'/ Aliove all, why should
the horse approve of the bent'? It
must be lhat the horse lias a dormant
sense of beauty and of humor. The
Ideal of the horse ls grace combined
with strength. He disapproves from
the bottom of his nature of the hopelessly vulgar, awkward, and unnes-
thetlcal came). The bear, he sees at
ouce, though clumsy, Is unpretentious,
truthful, and uot devoid of a sense of
humor. The dog he recognizes ns a
good fellow, companionable ami unselfish. He therefore forgets his ancestral predacious habits. A strong
bond between the dog and the horse ls
that they are both, fond of sport,
whereas a camel would not go an Inch
to see the best race that was ever run.
The horse does seem a little prejudiced ln the case of Hie camel, but It is
a fine, aristocratic, unreasonable prejudice he has. And we like him for himself and for showing that the evolutionists cannot explain all the sentiments of a refined and highly organized animal. Man, of course, they can
account for In every particular.—Hartford Cournnt.
