SEALED ORDERS.
In the  lender light of each  new  day's
dawning
A white-robed tvngel the order brings,
And thou, 0 Soul, in the silence nwukeu-
ing
Heareth the rush of the plumed wings.
Beuled with lhe seal of the Christ are the
orders;
No ej;es save thine may the message
read,
That places thee where, in thy Captain's
judgment-,
Of faithful service He hath most need.
Oft times thou readest the oue word "Onward I"
Though steep be the path and held by
the,
Though hope and courage alike bave fulled thee
And  darker  nnd   blacker the heavens
grow.
Oft times when  the hot blood, leaping,
surging,
Urges thee on with relentless hand,
While others are storming the enemy's
fortress,
There   cometh    to    thee    the   order,
"Stand!"
Stand nnd wait in the plnce appointed,
Though   other   troopers   go   galloping
past;
Patiently wait, for thy Captain knoweth
Thut waiting shall win the day at lust.
Oft there nre marches long and weary
When the sun beats down with pitiless
heat,
And solemn vigils when through the darkness
Thou treadest the sentry's lonely beat.
But always and ever each soldier knoweth
The Captain   Himself hath served  in
the rnnks—
Hath    borne    the    burden    on    weary
marches—
Hath watched alone by the river banks.
Knoweth thnt inch by inch He conquered,
Learning His army's inmost needs,
While marching across the enemy's country
Where now His forces He safely leads.
Sealed wilh the soul of the Christ are the
orders
The angel brings nt the dawn of day;
Take  them,  O   Soul,  without doubt or
question-.
Fearlessly tread the appointed way;
For nearer and nearer, the jeweled bastions
Of heaven gleam brightly through the
mists of space,
And His "Well-done" shall be thy guerdon
When  thou meetest thy Captain face
to face.
BY TELEPHONE.
T was a very warm
day ueur the close
of August, aud Virginia Allen stepped
Into a corner drug
store to refresh herself with a sodn.
A woman ls never too warm or too
fatigued  to  notice
nnother     woman's
gown, anil as Virginia waited at the
', soda   counter   her
) observant eyes look
In   every detail of
the charming sum-
1 mer costume worn
by a youug woman
ivho wns standing nt the telephone.
She was a very pretty woman and
her dainty gown of linen, with Its touch
of green ribbon here and there, became
her exceedingly, ns did her hat, a mass
of sweel pens and green gauze, set well
forward on her blonde head.
Just now she was a bit out of temper.
"Express 2804," she called Impatiently.
Aud as she waited for the desired number she turned and looked at Virginia,
who, quite overcome by the heat—or
was It for some other reason—had seated herself nt no great distance oft and
was wielding a pnliu leaf fan energetically.
The pretty woman turned abruptly
to the 'phone In response to a call. "Is
this Express 280*1?" she said.
"It Is Byron's number," Virginia muttered lo herself.   "I thought so."
The woman nt the 'phone spoke
again:
"This Is Mr. Curtis, ls It uot?" Virginia ceased fanning nud scarcely disguised the fuet that the conversation
Interested her.
"Yes, I nm Miss Clenvebrook," continued the woman In the Ilueu gowu.
Then, "Yes, please."
A short pause ensued. The drug store
cuckoo clock struck 2, Virginia excitedly Imagined What Byron Curtis
must be saying at the other end of (lie
'phone In his ofiice, high up In one of
the down-town buildings.
Miss Clenvebrook interrupted hor
thoughts. "Yes," she snld, aud Virginia fancied perhaps that her voice
took on a more tender 'one. "Same
place," she continued, with a llttlo
laugh. "Did you? I'm so glad. Thanks
so uiuch for the flowers. You really
mustn't send them so oftcu. It's too
extravagant of you."
Virginia gave a little start. "Theater
nguln this week?" questioned Miss
Clenvebrook doubtlugly. "[ really
think twice n week Is too ofteu."
But the man with whom she wns
talking seemed to overcome her scruples, and after agreeing to go with him
on Friday evening of that week she
said:
"Why don't you nsk me why I called
you up?" Then, seeming to forget that
she was In a public place, she laughed
merrily nt the response that came back
over the 'phone.   Finally she said:
"No, It wasn't that. I want very
much to see that book of 'After Dinner
Speeches" you spoke of. Can't you
bring it to me this evening? No? Well,
to-morrow, then. What are you going
to do to-night?"
The fair questioner seemed but little
pleased at the answer she received.
She lupped her foot impatiently, and
It was a full minute before she spoke.
Virginia fancied she heard Byron
saying: "I am going to call on Miss
Allen tonight." For hud be not asked
If lie might come over to see her Tuesday?
Miss Clenvebrook recovered her temper, If Indeed she had lost It, aud suid:
"1 thought I told you to drop thut?"
Virginia rose hurriedly and walked
to the front of the store. "It Is Insupportable," she muttered to herself.
"She speaks as If she owned hiin
when "
Her thoughts overcome her as the
memory of nil that hud happened between her and Byron Curtis rushed lo
her mind.
The sharp Hug of the little bell recalled her to herself and she looked up
to see Miss Clenvebrook leave the store
und go slowly down the street with a
happy smile dimpling her pretty fuee.
Virginia took nn Impulsive step toward the telephone, heedless of the
clerk who stood behind the counter and
who began lo g* ze at her rather curiously.
"He need uot come to see me," she
thought fiercely. "He would rather be
with her." Her voice nearly choked
her as she answered, "Express 2804,"
to the Inevitable, "Number, plense!"
The moments which followed were
agony to her. Her thoughts ran wild.
"It was ouly last week that he told me
that he cured for me and I—wns to have
answered him to-night.   Why—why did
1 care so much?"
"Hello!" sounded a man's voice over
the 'phone, and then, before she could
speak, "ls this you again, Louise?"
Virginia's face paled; theu she flushed painfully. Had she beeu mistaken?
It had never occurred to her that another man could have answered to Express 2804.
She made an effort to control her
voice. "I am Miss Allen. I wish to
spenk to Mr. Curtis."
"Mr. Curtis left the office, madam, nt
2 o'clock. I am his partner, Mr. Col-
way.   Can I do any thing for you?"
"Thauk you, no," replied Virginia.
Mr. Colway wondered ns he hung up
the receiver at the glad change lu the
girl's voice.
"Miss Allen!" he soliloquized. "By
Jove! I didn't know It had gone so fur.
Her voice sounded as If she might be
pretty. If 1 am to believe Curtis ou
the subject of the young woman's
charms, he ls In great good luck, but
I'll bet she can't touch Lou."
The glad change In Vlrglnla'8 voice
was noticed also by another man—a
man who stood by the cigar counter
watching the girl with his whole soul In
his eyes.
Virginia turned from the 'phone witli
a happy feeling of thankfulness that
was almost a pain. The man who had
been wntchlug her stepped quickly toward her.
"Byron!" she snld, with a little glad
cry, holding out both hands to him.
"Virginia," he answered, "It Is Tuesday."
"Yes," she said softly, "It Is Tuesday."
"And " questioned he.
"Yes, again," she murmured, even
lower.
A drug store ls not a very romantic
place, but I think that those two told
each other everything lu the look they
gave each other, quite unmindful of the
little clerk, who flippantly mixed an
egg phosphate for the next customer.
HIS FOOLISH PRESUMPTION.'
The Young Lady Tuug-ht Hint that He
Had Made a Mintake.
"No," said Evangeline Glendennlng,
as she looked down ut the floor und
nervously twisted her slim UttJe Angers; "no, Alfred, I um sorry, but It
cannot be."
Alfred Doncaster had loved the beati-
tlfid girl from the moment he had first
seen her, and he had fondly believed
that she looked upou him with more
than ordinary favor.
But now his holies lay shuttered, and
the future stretched out black before
him.
The strong, handsome youug man
sighed, aud was silent for a long time.
At last the sweet maiden said:
"Try to be brave, Alfred. I^ook at
mc.   See how 1 nm hearing up."
He turned toward her lu wonder, nnd
snld:
"Why should you bid me do this?
What have you to bear up under?"
"Oh, Alfred, If you only knew!"
"EvangelineI" he cried, catching her
In bis arms and holding her ln a strong
embrace, "you love mc! Ah, darling,
you cannot hide the truth from me!
Tell mc It Is bo!"
"Yes," she said, "I love you, Alfred."
"O heaven," be groaned, "this Is terrible, terrible. Oh, If you only hnted
me—Ion I hed me! Then my fule would
bc litis bitter."
She wns frightened, and drew away
from him.
"Why," she asked, "do you want me
to hate you?"
"Ah," he answered, "I might bear
my own burden, but how can I survive
knowing that you, too, suffer?"
"Yes, why should either of us suffer?" the trembling girl inquired.
"Evangeline," he almost hissed, "do
not Jest with me!   Why should we suf- i
fer!   Are we not doomed to everlnst-'
lug separation nud  misery?    Are we
not to be "
"Oh," she Interrupted, "you're not
going to let a little bluff stop you right
at the start, are you? Did you want
me to tumble Into your arms the first
thing, as If I had merely becn waiting
for the word? You must be new at
this business."
Then she became so angry that It
took Alfred Doncaster nearly seven
minutes to win her back again.—Oleve

It Is certain that at the wedding ceremony It ls always the man nnd not the
woman who Is "rattled." Ministers testify to the fact, and any prospective
bridegroom will bear witness to thii-
awful feeling of apprehension with
which he looks forward to the wedding
ceremony ln which he Is to piny nn lui-
portnut part It Is really n piece of self-
consciousness which shows the conceit
of man nnd for which there ls no need;
the bridegroom is a matter of little consideration to anyone, possibly excepting thc bride, when the great occasion
arrives.
To Make un iiun Keveul Ita Age.
To ascertain the freshness of an egg,
without breaking, hold It before a
strong light and look directly through
the shell. If the yolk appears round
and the white surrounding It clear, the
chances nre that the egg ls fresh. Or
you may drop It Into water; If the egg
sinks quickly aud remains at the bottom It is In all probability fresh, but If
It stands ou end It Is doubtful, nnd
quite bad ir It floats. The shell of a
fresh egg looks dull, while that of a
stale one ls glossy.—Mrs. S. T. Korer,

; when it was the scene of a terrible Indian massacre.   It wus then owned by

Scaled Up for Years in New York's
Court  Huiisc.
A room lhe existence of which was
known to few, If any. present ou.ee
holders, wns discovered Inst week in
the County Court House. It Is the
si.'iii.hensl corner, under the office of
the Surrogate's clerks. It was tightly
fastened, and, ll is said, has not been
opened for twelve to fifteen years. No
one lu the butldiug had nuy control
over the room or Its contents, but on inquiry li was found that the room had
been tnkeu .veal's ngo for the deposit of
records of the Comptroller's office. The
Inquiry wns pursued until a key to the
room was fouud filed away In the office of the Comptroller aud the room
was opened.
The dead air Inside nearly knocked
over the curious men who looked In,
and the door was quickly shut up
again.   The hasty glance taken of the
Homes for Themselves.
One of the best possible facts In the
latter-day progress of ibis country is
the Increase in the number of homes,
ln crowded centers of population, such
ns New York and one or- two other
cities, the flat anil the hotel must ul-
wnys bc necessary, for sprue is too valuable to be monopolized by the humble.
But even around the very large cities;
ihere are being buili thousands und
thousands of suburban cottages and
country residences, und all through the
length nnd breadth of the Country, lu
the towns, villages and cities, artistic
homes are increasing nt nn astonishing
rate. If anyone will lake the trouble
to look up Hie literature on the subject
ho will fluil that In ibis country there
ure more thun a hundred papers devoted to these home-builders, giving
them each week plans and suggestions.
The number of books upon low-priced
architecture written In the past fifteen
years, exceeds the total for a century
previous. A wider education is being
spread, nnd the gain in every way Is
enormous.
A man who owns his home is n better
citizen, even If there Is n mortgage on

nnd the preservation of public order
which makes him stand for what is

Kipling Don't i.,k<. Us.
Rudyard Kipling doesn't like the pen
pie id lhe United Slules, which dislike
is u ple.-e of Ingratitude, boctiuse the
people of lhe United Slates like Ihe
writings of Rudyard Kipling, lu u recent letter to a Newfoundlander the
distinguished author says that "there
is no question of the loyally to the
British empire of nil while men speaking thc English tongue, wllh a high
birth rale and u low murder rule, living
quietly under laws which nre neither
bought nor sold."
Mr. Kipling makes IiIh charges
against Americans through tbe process
of negation; but they are sufficiently
explicit even lu that form to prevent
any chance of misunderstanding. What
have we ever done to lliidyiird to provoke such bitter animosity? We hnve
expressed great admiration for his lit-
erary genius, and have bought thoii-
snuds upon thousands of copies of his
books. What more e;in we do to secure
n cessntlon of his hostility? Shall ull
kotowing before him go for naught.

A mtmijek of malicious porsons are
busily circulating tbe report tbat the
people of Grand Forks are responsible
for tbe quarantine established by Dr.
Hickenbottom, and that the only reason
that it has not been lifted was because
business men of the place were making
a few dollars out of the unfortunate
freighters who are compelled to transfer
their loads in consequence of it. Mr.^
Hickenbottom, in establi bing this quarantine here, did so on his own responsibility and contrary to the wiuici of the
cit's as of this city, who are in no way
in sympathy with the movement, but
arc doing all in their powor to have it
lifted.

THE  CANDIDATES  FOR   MAYOR.
Two candidates for the c ffice of mayor of this cily have been definitely decided on» and the nee asary canvas may
now be "aid to bein progress. Robert
Htwett, manager and part owner of the
Grand Forks brewery, and alderman
W. C. K. Wanly being aspirants.
Mr. Hewitt is well known in the community as an energetic and public spirited citiren, and there is little doubt if
successful but what ihe affairs oi the
city will lecetve in his hinds the attention and active application always necessary to insure the greatest measure of
success. That this young community
needs iron of this stamp to direct its affairs at the present time is a fact patent
to every resident of tbc place.
Alderman W. C. K Manly has been a
hard working member of the present
council, and certainly has earned
the right to o;cupy the position of chief
magistrate of the city. Mr. M inly is
also well and favorably known in the
community, and there is little doubt but
what he is capable 0/ filling tbe important office af mayor, with the necessary
tact and judgment rtqirred to insure
success.
The candidature of Mr. Uewitt and
aide mi in Manly, give the citizens an
opportunity of selecting the chief executive officer from good material,
lio b, gent'omen have large interests in
the city* and both have a reputation for
ability aud integrity that is a guarantee
that the affairs of thcc;o nmunity will be
safe in their hands. It rests with the
rate payers to make the selection which
jn their opinion is calculated to serve
the best interests of the city,
Tha list of probable candidates for
councdmon comprises tbq names o
same good men and when both tickets
have beon publicly announced, the offi :e
cat will select a ticket from those in the
field and endeavor to show good roa-
ions why it should he elected.
In our last issue th; account we published ot tlie meeting in London of the
Recordia syndicate, and the address delivered on that rccasion by the company's chairman and Mr. A. Woodhouse,
heir mining engin-er was taken from
the London Bullion 1st. We neglected
when publishing thc article to give that
paper the credit due, and do to now as
a matter of justice.
Thk Sando 1 Mining Review has at
last solved the dull times problem in
that town and lays the blamo at «he
door of the coast papers. The reason is
"ihat they keep the peop.e int-rested in

into circulation in that way, is now

TIRED OI7 LIFE.
In a Fit cl Dispondency Eiv/ard P. Suydam
Shoots Himself.
Disheartened by the ill success whieh
had attended his mining ventures Edward P. Suydam, a prospector, fatally
shot himself in the right temple at 9:30
o'clock last evening at his room in tbe
War Eagle hotel. He was intoxicated
at the time. In a remarkable letter, in
which he declared that he killed himself
a; the world would be bet'or without
him, and he requested he be buried by
bis brother Master Masons on American
soil. He leaves a wife aud children at
Castle, Mont,
Suydam came to Ro-sland on December 1 from Grand Korks, in company with C, A. Hagleberg, to sell some
claim-, in which the two were inter e Hed,
as well as to negotiate some dt His lor
acquaintences in the Boundary country
He went into that country live or six
years ago, and was credited with hiving
som;g< odcla'nis. Suydam was not successful in his deals, and expected to return to Greenwood today. He was
busy writing yesterday, and evidently
drew up hi*, an tl* mortem document at
that time. About 9:30 he came down
from his room and got a glass of ice
water at the bar. Bidding his friends
good tvght he returned to his room, and
a tnoiient later a report was heard. On
investigation »t was fount! that he had
calmly seated himself before the mirror,
placed a pistol at bi3 right temple, carc-
lully aimed and fired. The bullet entered the right temple and came out in the
upper part of his forehead-, slightly to
the left, and lodged in his bat. Drs
Campbell and Bowes were summoned,
but could do nothing for him, as the
wound was palpably ratal. He was still
living and was sent to the Sisters' hospital.
Suydam, who was 51 years old, was an
American, and served In the Federal
army. Drifting west, he made a fortune
as a mining operator in the San Juan
country in Colorado, but he lost all he
made. Subsequently he grew rich in
the wool business, but Was again unfortunate, and for the past five or six
years he had follwed mining in B itish
Columbia.
He had a large number of acquaintences here, all of whom have a kindly
word to say of him.
Mr. Sydam died at 20 minutes to one
this morning.   B. B. White, undertak

PROVES OUR ASSERTION.
The Vancouver World of /.h inst.,
commenting on the statement  made by
this  pa.pe.r to the  effect that the   C. P.
R. never built a ntile of track in this
country that was  not practically  paid
for by tbe people, informs us most seriously that we are estray in this matter,
and names the Slocan and the Slocan
Crossing Une  32  miles   in length, tho
Mission branch 12  miles long,  and the
extension of the Nakusp line from Three
Forks to Sandon, a few miles.     We are
prepared to admit that no direct grant
was given the company iu aid of the
construction of these links in its system
jvf railwiys, but the  World knows well
that every other section of the C. P. R,
system mentioned by it has boen bonus-
ed heavily by the country, and that these
bonuses in themselves were sufficient to
complete the lines for the  construction
of which they were directly given, and
the Slocan Mission and Sandou lines as
well,   The Mission lino and bridge was
built to gain an entrance into the Puget
Sound district in  Washington, and the
Slocan Crossing line to enable the company tQ hau,l down ore from Slocan Oity,
and we repeat that the company has ha i
sufficient public aid already to cover
the expense  of   building  the-e    short
sections in addition to thc main  lines,
although it was not granted for that
specific purpose.   Thc  BClNBR  has no
quarrel with thp C. I1 R. and expec.s to
be allowed  the privilege of  making a
plain statement regarding a public muter of this kind without giving offe ise
(o any one.   The chief characteristic ol
the whole foolish article is, that it proves
most emphatically that our statement
was correct.   Discretion is a thing the
World pught to cultivate.

and reifvoir (or the water system, has

Dr. Hickenbottom Raises the
Quarantine.
AND EVERYBODY HAPPY
The Doptor Thinks he Has Effectively Stamped Out the Dreaded
Disease.
Last Thursday Dr. Hiekenbottom,
dominion veterinary inspector at this
point, has seen fit to suspend the quara-
tine established here, owning to the unfortunate outbreak of glanders among
the horses owned by freighters doing
business between here and Marcus,
Washington. Dr. Hickenbottom's present action goes to show that he has
succeeded in stamping out this dreaded
disease, which fact will be highly appreciated, not only in this community, but
throughout the entire Boundary country.
FOUND NO GLANDERS.
Dr. Nelson, Washington's State Vetcniary
Inspector Fails to find Glanders.
Dr. Nelson, state veterinary inspector
for Washington, was a pasengcr on last
Monday evening's stage from Marcus,
where he has been for the past week inspecting horses for the purpose, if possible, of ascertaining if the much dreaded glanders existed in that section.
Mr. Nelson states that he made a careful examination of over seventy head of
animals at Marcus, and has so far tailed
to find any traces of glanders. The
object of his trip here at tbis time, was
for tbe purpose of trying to persuade
Dr. Hickenbottom to raise the quarantine, or to have his certificate ol health
recognized, but left on Thursday morning's stage without being successful in
his mission. Just what steps Mr. Nelson
will now take he failed to state, but
we may look for some developments in
the near future that may put a different
face on the matter.
NELSON NEWS NOTES.
The Nelson Merchants have decided
to bring their freight from Kettle Falls
over their new road as soon as it is completed.
An election will be held on the ist of
January for the purpose of selecting a
recorder Ior Curlew district to act during the year 1898. During the present
year the office has been very efficiently
filled by H. M. Gtnin.
A crosscut has been run east ten feet
at a depth of 48 feet on the 'Sitka," for
the purpose of regaining the lead which
at that depth broke. The croscut recovered the vein an! sinking is aga'n
resumed, the ore showing up in every
way better than before the brake occurred.
Deputy Customs' Inspector, I,. K.
Boissinault, last Sunday seized two kegs
ol whiskey and a can of alcohol which
were being; taken in to O'Connor's
drug store at Eureka by Mr. Dimond.
The wet goods are now held at the customs' office awaiting orders from headquarters as to their disposal.
There is considerable diappointment
expressed by a number of the "boys"
who will be prevented from attending
the Foresters' New Years' ball by reason of having to relocate claims which
expire at midnight of December 31.
Those who have no locations to mane
however, will attend in full iorce.
Henry White, who is in charge of the
"City of Paris'' and "Lincoln" mines on
the B. C. side, aDd the "Lone Star" and
"Washington" on the reservation, tell
from his door step Wednesday evening
and sustained a painful injury to his
back, which however, will not in any
probability be permanent.
The social atmosphere of Nelson ^is
now humming with preparations for the
Christmas tree exorciees and masquerade ball to be held in the school bouse
on Christmac eve. A literary and mu-
aical program is beins prepared and
Santa Clause will distribute the gifts in
person. The masqueiade ball will im-
mediately follow the childien's exercises,
One of the promising prospects of
thiB section about which very little has
been said is the "Faithful," owned by
Pat Henry and Jacob Poulson. This
claim is an extension ot the "Surprise''
pn the north, and surface showings indicate that it will carry the same high
grade ore. A tunnel has been run about
60 feet on this property and a crosscut
is now being driven in ledge matter with
the expectation of breaking into ore at
any time.
A number of sleighing parties from
Grand Forks have visited Nelson recently and favored our citizens with
divers renditions of "Molly Riley."
Whether it is the exonerating air of this
section, or McLaren Bros, drinking
water that couses the Grand Forks
youth to effervesce to the tune of "Molly Riley," is a. question as yet unsolved.
Certain it is however that unless these
same youngsters drop Molly and sing
pome new song like"McGinty" or"After
the Ball" they will have trouble in Nelson.
The "Surprise" claim owned by Bert
Campbell of this place, and Qeo. Petty
pf Slocan, is making a better showing
with every foot of depth obtained. The
lea'l dipped at an angle of about 45 degrees for thirty leet but is now straightening, and the character of the rock is
also improving. The lead is seven feet
wide between petfect walls, and ihe pay
streak does not vary from about 30 inches
in width. A new bunk house has been
built, a good road completed to the
property and the present force of five
men will be increased next week and
both night and dny shafts put to work.
Mr'^and Mrs. Petty are now residing at
the claim and Mr. Petty will assist in
pushing developmont work all winter.
After the ibi of January the high grade
pre will be shipped out for treatment.
has been placed at the modest sum
$1.50, including supper.
MINING NOTES.
Gnffert and Anderson are pushing development work in the "Gold Drop" on
Hardy mountain.
""it is reported that pay ore has bean
struck in the lower tunnel oa the "R -
public" mine at Eureka camp.
W. K. White is pushing work on the
"Earthquake" claim in Browns camp
Already over forty feet of work bas been
done on this claim, consisting itiiefly of
drifts on the ledge.
Work has been temporarily sttspend-
ed on tbe "Snow Shoe" mine in Urter.-
wood camp. It will be remembered tbat
Patsy Clark recently bonded tbis pro-
erty for a large sum.
Great activity in mining opeiations at
pesent exists in "HarJy mountain
camp." Some half a dozen properties
are working all winter in tbis crimp, the
operations being chiefly underground
work.
Work is being ste.rdily pushed ahead
on the "American Eagle' property on
Hardy mountain by Messrs. McGuiar &
Holms tbe owners. Comfortable w.nter
quarters have been made on ihis claim
and work will be continned all winter.
The work at present being done consists of sinking a shaft on the ledge.
J. W. Young went up to Summit camp
last Monday to continue work on the
"Josie1' mine. Mr. Young say*! that in
the shaft lhat has been sunk on that
claim there is a six inch seam of pre
carrying native copper. The "Josie" is
owned by Capt. A. L. Rogers and J. W
Young and was located some three years
ago It is considered one o! the magnets of Summit camp.
RESERVATION  NOTES.
The "Comstock" mine on LaFluer
mountain is preparing to ship ore. Already a number of men are employed in
sacking ore for shipment to an American
smelter for treatment. The ore that is
being sacked will average 850 in all
values.
The residents of Nelson, Wash , are
about to build a snow road from that city
to a point near Cascade City. It is
claimed that the residents of Marcus
have offered to furnish the required
number of men to complete this road, if
the Nelson people will provide the
necessary provisions for the men while
on the work. The object of building
thi:* road this winter is to provide a route
to the Reservation point3 without having to pass through British Columbia.
Henry White, superintendent of the
"Lone Star" and "Washington" properties, near Nelson, Wash., is about to expend some $10,000 in opening up these
claims. The work will consist of both
sinking and drifting. 'Ihere is already
over 600 tons of ore on the dump of the
Lone Star" property that will pay to
ship. Mr. White is also interested in
the "Citv of Paris" and "Lincoln", claims,
and $25,000 to expend on these two
properties. He is most enthusiastic over
the resnlts of the work he has done on
these claims and thinks they are thc
making of mines.
Public School Xmas Examination.
The Christmas public school examination was held yesterday alternoon, when
the children went through their different recitations exceedingly well, especially the fouith and fifth classes in arithmetic and physiology. At the close of
the examination ihe Rev. McLenn; n
gave the children a very pleasant ta k
in his usual genial manner. Appropriate addresses were also made by Wm.
Caiterand R.A.Brown, then lollowed
a program by the school children, consisting of choruses, sotvja, reciiations
and dialogues. In addition to this program was the noveliy of a step dance
peiformedby Mr. J. W. McCools two
little sons, the music for which was furnished by Master Perry Schuler, another
small boy. One noticable feature that
existed during the examination was the
ready manner in which each child responded when called upon by their
teacher. The order and general betaav-
our of the children was also a remarkable feature on this occasion. A most
representative pattering of the parens
and others interested in school affairs
were present which added much to the
interest of the event.
The list of the pupils promoted at this
examination will appear in our next issue. Two much credit cannot be given
the teacher, Miss Margaret Johnson for
the able manner in which she has conducted thc school for the last six months
and the manner that the children havo
advanced in their studies under her tui-
lion goes fo show that she is the right
person in tbe right place.
EVERYBODY DANCE,
Court Kettle River, I, O, F. Preparing for a
Glorious Time-
On the evening of December 31s!,
new years eve., Court Kettle River, I. O
F , of Qrand Forks, will give its first an-
pual ball in W.C. K. Manly's hall. This
being the initial entertainment given by
the members ol this popular order, the
public may confidently expect something above tbe average, and the committee who have theaffa r in band are sparing no pains to make this occasion the
p\e it of tbe season. The bes. or music
has been secured and at 12 o'clock sbar|
a sumptioui repast wi,l be seived. Ir
prder that everbodv* may be present and
jjjiye a good time, the price ot admission
Have©ecided on the Route.
The proposed waeon road frcm Rossland to connect with the Marcus and
Grand Forks road at Cascade City seems
to be an assured success. At a meotino
of the Boaid of Trade of Rossland, held
on Friday evening of last week, the question was fully discussed and the unani
mous opinion pievailed that the road
would be of immense value in
opening up the Boundary district to the merchants of that city.
The only question was as to the
route, and af ier some minjtr discussion
the Dewdney trail was unanimously settled upon. The present Northport
wagon road willbe followed to Barney's
ranch, and Irom tbat point on, the general course of the road will follow the
Dewdney trail. Practical men, who
have been over the route, declaie lhat a
road can be constructed over which it
would be possible lo haul a load of at
least a 1000 pounds. It was shown that
the giades are nowhere so difficult as lo
make a good wagon road out of the
question. In many places tbe road can
be built for from $300 to S400 per mile,
and the total distance to be constructed
does not exceed twenty miles.
Forgot to Bid Goodby.
Edward H, Kane, who is well known
to many ol the citizens of this distiict,
as the representative of the Kootfnay
Brewing Company at Trail, has skipped
the "gutter" leaving a large number of
Rossland creditois to moum his sudden
departure. For ihe pu-it month Kuie
has been managing the International
Hall at Rossland during which time he
■■eems to have got into the debt of nearly
everyone in town. On Tuesday of last
veek suit was brought against him by-
three d fferent creditors, but when the
rase  was  called   the  next day Kane
urnoi up missing.
98AHUMMER
Every Indication Points to a
Prosperous Year.
ATTRACTING ATTENTION
Capital Looking this Way—The Rail'
way Situation as Seen by
Outsiders.
OCbas. Van Ness arrived from Rosslaild
Wednesday evening and expects to remain in tbe city for sometime looking alter his business in this section. In con-
veisati. n with a Miner representative
Mr.  Van  Ness said:
"Business in all branches in Rossland
shows a marked improvement and every
thing points to a very prosperous year
for the Kootenay districts. Tbe working Iorce in all the mines is steadily being increased and all tbe properties that
are being worked are tun ing out beyond the most sanguine expectation.?,
"The reports from this district are
attracting the attention of a large num-
of mining men with capital, who arc looking for investment. And ii talk is any criterion to go by, wc make look for a number of big deals in tbis section, to say
nothing nf the hundreds of small ones
that will be made. There is no question but thc coming season will be one
of activity aud prosperity.
"As to the coming city election I have
nothing to say, beyond tbat both of tbe
aspirants are good men and the city's
interests will be carefully guarded no
matter which one is elected'"
RACE OF RAILWAYS.
Can Only Be Prevented by Purchase of
Corbin's Lines.
Should the reported negotiations for
the purchase of the Corbin system of
roads to the Kootenay country by the
Canadian Pacific railroad fall through,
says the Spokane Chronicle of Dae. 13,
it is quite lik :ly that tho coming season
will witness a large amount of railroad
building throughout the mining districts
of Sou hcr,1 British Columbia. Not
only is ihe Canadian Pacific preparing
to build into Rosslan I, but Heinze is
getting ready to extend his road from
Kobsou to Pentieton and Corbin will
race with him as far as Grand Foiks and
Greenwood.
Never before has there been such a
large number of surveying corps in the
northern field. Reluming miners and
prospectors state that north, east and
south of Grand Forks surveying parties
a-e scattered through the hills and valleys selecting feasible mules for rail
toads. A* Christina lake thereis a large
party at work, said to be in the employ
ol Mr. Heinze, and although the snow is
pretty deep in that section they are
working rij;ht along in spite of the inconvenience experienced on account of
the weather.
Robert L. Murray of Seattle, who was
in the city yesterday on his way. home
from the north, said that he bad recently met several surveying parties In the
vicinity ot Eureka and Grand Forks.
Engineer Tracy is in charge of the
Spokane Falls & Northern corps, which
is running a line across the Colville
reservation to Grand Forks. Tne first
party went out some time ia September,
but was soon ;.fter recalled. About
three weeks ago work was resumed and
excellent progress has been made. The
suivey has be*rn practically completed
between Northport and Cascade City.
Route of tbe New Road.
The proposed line will branch off at
Northport and will cross the Columbia
river on thc big steel bridge that has
just been completed. It will follow the
river as far south as Cow creek, when
it will follow west to Boulder mountain.
It will pass south of that mountain and
then run in a northwesterly direction to
Deep Creek to the international boundary line, a short distance from Cascade
City. It will run north from the international boundary line into Ca.rcade
City.
Eager to See It Built,
"The building of this line," said Mr
Murray, "will give a great stimulus to
the industry on the Colville reservation
and in tbe Grand Forks ar.d Greenwood
districts. The country's development
has been retarded by a lack ol adequate
transportation, all of which will be supplied by the const' uction ol Mr. Corbin's
proposed railroad."
The people of the north are solidly
against tlie absorption of the Corbin
lines bv the Canadian Pacific. They al-
ledge that in the event of such n thing
happening it would be ihe greatest calamity that could befall the Kootenay
country at present, as it would pr»ve an
oifecluul bar to anv future competition
and future railroad building in thu
Kootenay would be insignificant in the
extreme.

REACH    ALASKA.

hh Y«*l Only Two, Are Adviiable for
the    Gold    Beaker   to   Attempt    Koine
of the Difficulties to Ue Overcome.
[Special Correspondence.]
How many will go to the Klondike
next year, how will they bo transported, are questions now being asked by
transportation companies ami the
thousands Interested in one way or an*
other in the great movement aliout to
take place. Even the man going
thither to seek liis fortune is vitally interested In these matters, if there is
too big a crowd he may not bo able to
secure a passage, or to get a proper
outfit, or be successful in transporting
it into the interior. He would better
not trust too   much to luck nor depend
too much upon being able to travel in
tho regular way. Certainly, su far as
the regular steamers aro concerned,
their berths will all ho engaged weeks
in advance, and the man Who neglects
to secure passage early may havo to
wait a long time for hid turn to come
around. Even on the overland trains
there is promise of Inconvenience, If not
delay. So great a rush, all in one direction, will tax tlie rolling stock of
the railroads to its utmost, since curs
will have to go back empty.
The lowest estimate of tlie number of
people who will start for Alaska next,
spring fs 50.000, while some who have
given the BUUJeot much attention place
the figure as high as 800,000. At an
average of li00 to each vessel, it would
require 170 steamers to convey the minimum number, while 680 would be
necessary to accommodate the maximum. To send 170 steamers in the
months of February, March and April
would make it necessary for two to
sail each day. There is now advertised
riot one-quatrer the steamers necessary.
The others will no doubt be provided,
for there are numerous transportation
projects on foot, but nothing definite
about them can yet be said. This is
sufficient to show that tlio man who
intends to join the lirst great rush by
the way of the passes and lakes would
do well to make sure of his passage to
Dyea or Skaguay. As to tlie route by
the way of St. Michaels and the river,
that will not be open till June, and
extensive transportation projects now
under way will be sufficiently developed
long before that time to make it well
to postpone any estimates until later.
There are but two well known and
undeniably practical routes to the Yukon mines. One is by the mountain
passes' from Dyea and Skaguay to the
lakes and thence by boat down tlie lakes
and rivers, and the other is by ocean
steamer to St Michaels and thence up
the river by light draft steamer. All
other routes are yet to bo proved, and
all who try them must expect to meet
with the tribulations and uncertainties
that lay in the path of the pioneer.
Undoubtedly the great majority of Yu-
kouers will try the passes, since the
mines can be reached in this way two
Or three months earlier than by steamer, aud, of these the greater number
will go over the regular Yukon trail by
tlie way of Chilkoot pass, tlie next
greater number going from Skaguay over
the White pass.
It is well thoroughly to understand
this route and its variation as to the
two passes. Linn canal, about 100
miles north of Juneau, penetrates a
number of miles northerly into the
coast mountains, the very head of it being divided into two arms by a rocky
promontory. Into tlie easterly arm
flows Skaguay river and into tlio westerly arm the Dyea river. Both aro
rapid, ice-cold mountain streams, navigable for canoes only for several miles.
At the head of these arms are located
the new towns of Skaguay and Dyea.
From these points it is necessary to
cross tho high mountain divide to
Lakes Lindermann and Bennett, where
boats aro constructed for the journey
down the river. Until tbe past season
the Yukoners havo used the Chilkoot
pass, from Dyea, exclusively, the Chil-
kat Indians packing all tho supplies at
the usual rato of 15 cents a pound.
The route is '21 miles long, aud the
summit of the pass is 3,200 feet high.
Tlie Indians have always refused to
pack by any other route, declaring this
to be tlie best ono. Last summer, owing to the great rush and the eagerness of all to get over at any cost, the
Indians raised their price for packing,
until often as high as a dollar a pound
was paid them. This, and the crowded
condition of the trail, led many to try
the Skaguay trail, which, though 41
miles long, was asserted to be better,
because the summit of the pass was
some 000 feet lower. It was found,
however, that the trail was not so good,
that the river hud to be crossed several
times, and that, though tho puss was
somewhat lower, tho trail led up and
down hill so much that the actual
climbing done was greater than by tho
Chilkoot puss, where the ascent was
gradual to the foot of tho summit divide, when ono very steep climb was
necessary. Tho practical result was
that a vory much larger percentage of
those who tried the Chilkoot pass succeeded In reanhing the lakes, than of
those who attempted tin Skaguay route.
Nevertheless, improvements are now
being made on both trails, and both
will he extensively used in the spring,
it being much easier to go lu ovor the
snow, when the rocks and mud which
made the trails so difficult lust full are
covered up.
ThoiG uro projected improvements
for both of thoso trails, in the nature
of railroads and tramways, but as yet
only Chilkoot pass shows anything tangible. A combined railroad and tramway is undor construction nnd is prom*
sed to be completed by the first of February, for tho taking of freight from
Dyna through to Lake Lindermann. The
probabilities are thnt this convenience
will be provided by that time, or
shortly thereafter. The company operating it purposes to contract to carry
freight from Dyea to the lake at a price
much below what it would cost to pack
it over, and to handle it so promptly
that by the time the owner can walk
over the trail his freight will get
through. With tbis tramway in operation, and nothing similar on tbe Skaguay trail, tlie Chilkoot pass would get
all tho travel. There are, however,
still other tramways and railroad projects on both trails, but when they will
be ready for uso is uncertain. At the
present time it would  seem as though
this Chilkoot tramway will be the only
thing ready early enough to accommodate tiie first rush in February and
March. Until that time, there is apparently little choice between the trails
tor winter travel, and those who go in
before February may take either. For
those who go in over the snow a Yukon sled is necessary. This is a strong
skeleton Bled and may be purchased at
any regular outfitting point. Many
take dogs to help draw sleds, but all
can not do this. If it is done, special
provision must be made for food for
tiie animals.
After the lakes have been reached,
the remainder of the route is the same
for both passes, consisting of about 550
miles of lake and river navigation to
Dawson City, at the mouth of the
Klondike. It is 50 miles further to
Forty-Mile, and Circle City is 300
miles down the river from Dawson.
The new town of Rampart City is still
about 500 miles further down the Yukon, at the mouth of Munook creek,
not fur above the point whero the
Tannanah Hows into the great river.
This entire lake nnd river journey is
made in strong boats, usually built out
ol timber whipsawed by the Yukoners
ou tho bunks of Lukes Lindnnnunn or
Bennett. There is a small saw mill
there, but il is unable to rut enough
timber to till the demand. Doubtless
other mills will be taken in as 40011 us
the tramway is completed, but miners
should not rely upon this, but should
take an outfit of tools and material for
building a boat, us well as oars and
rowlocks. Efforts to lake in boats over
tho pass lust fall were unsuccessful,
oven In sections. Though il might be
easier to do so over the snow, it is
doubtful if it would not consume us
much extra time and labor us the
building of a boat would require.
When the tramway is ut work, specially constructed boats could no doubt be
taken in to advantage, and valuable
time be saved. •'
The route leads through Lake Lindermann, ii miles, a portage to Lake Bennett, 1 mile; (lown the lake, 24 miles;
through Cariboo crossing to Lake Tag-
ish, 2 miles; down the lake 10 miles;
by river to Lake Marsh, 0 miles;
across the lake passing Windy Arm,
10 miles. Those who go in the winter and early spring can proceed to this
point by drawing their bouts on sleds,
but there they must wait for the ice to
break up before proceeding down the
river in their boats, unless they intend
to go through light, dragging a sled
over the snow und ice. Twenty-five
miles below Lake Marsh is the dreaded
Miles canyon, und just below this
place are White Horse rapids. Both
of these places may be safely run in
the boat if the utmost cure is exercised. Many boats have been wrecked
here und their contents lost, while several unfortunate men have been
drowned. No one should attempt these
difficult passages without tirst having
carefully studied the situation. Thirty
miles further down tho river is Lake
Le Barge, 80 miles long. Five Finger
rapids are 108 miles below this lake,
and Kink rapids are ;i miles further.
These are tbe lust of the specially dangerous places, though cure must be exercised during the entire journey.
As to other routes from tho coast,
there aro but threo that have any
prominence, and none of them is as yet
sufficiently known to make it advisable for the ordinary gold seeker to attempt them. Une of them is the Dal-
ton trail, leading noitherly over the
mountains just west of the Chilkoot
pass, and paralleling the lake und
river route for about 300 miles, finally
striking the Yukon below the most
dangerous rapids. It is claimed that
this is the best route for a railroad, but
it is yet to be shown how practicable
it is for general uso. The government
will probably attempt to send in a relief expedition by this route early in
the spring.
The Taku and the Stiokeen routes,
one starting from Taku inlet, neur Juneau, nnd the other from the Stiokeen
river, neur Wrangel, converge at Lake
Teslin. Small river steamers can navigate this lako and pass down the
Hootalinqua river to the Yukon below
the rapids, nud thus to Dawson and beyond. It is claimed that such steamers will be built on tho lake in the
spring, and that trails will be opened
up to the lake und pack trains put un,
to be followed soon by railroads; but
until this ia actually done the gold
seeker would do well not to intrust
himself to the uncertainties of those
routes.
Undoubtedly tho most comfortable
and easy way to reach the Yukon mines
is by steamer from one of the Pacific
coast ports to the mouth of the Yukon,
at St. Michaels, and thence by light
river steamers up tho stream, the distance up the river being 1,422 miles to
Circle City, and 1,772 to Dawson City.
Tho trouble with this route is that the
river is navigable only three months in
tho year, und then only by small river
steamers, because of frequent bars. The
ice breaks up about the 20th of June
und fo-ms again about the same time
In September. There are now several
steamers on the river belonging to the
Alusku Commercial Company aud tho
North American Transportation uud
Trading Company, both of which have
trading posts on tho river, with headquarters at St. MlohaelB. Both companies are building1 several new vessels
lor next year's traffic.
Tho outlook for this route next summer is that tlie number of steamers on
the river will bo utterly inadequate to
accommodate tho persons who will be
landed by thousands at St. Michaels by
steamers and sailing vessels, though
there are numerous projects on foot for
building steamers on the river in tho
spring or towing them thither. As
every vessel on the river will probably
run in connection with some regular
ocean line, and as the pobuiiilities are
that tbe ocean liners will carry more
passengers and freight thun the river
steamers can bundle, it would seem as
though tlie only persons who will Stand
any show of getting through to Dawson
by this route will be those who purchase through passage from the starting
point to their destination for themselves and supplies. Those who pay
passage only to St. Michaels, or who
reach that point hy independent steamers or vessels, will probably be unable
to proceed any further. Notwithstanding this promises to be the condition
of affairs next summer, there will
doubtless thousands of men take puss-
age in all kinds of craft for St. Michaels, without providing means for getting beyond that point. Much disappointment ia in store for many on this
score.

Skasrnay to iiuve un-uou Rond.
Redd McDonald of Helena, Mont., has
just returned from a visit of several
weeks to Skaguay, where he has been
looking over the field with a view of engaging in business there in the spring.
'"The Skaguay trail waa fully ns bad as
it wus painted," said he to a Spokesman-
Review reorler. "So great Mas the haste
to get across to the lakes that no man
would slop even to roi. a boulder out of
tlie trail or to chop off a small tree that
might prove an obstruction. Horses were
clubbed until they would jump over the
obstructions, and tlie result of the inhumanity and extreme hurry was a trail of
dead horses from Skaguay to the lakes.
It will be different next year. A company with plenty of money is blasting
out as good a wagon road as one could
wish all the way from Skaguay to the
lake. It will have a solid rock foundation and there will be no trouble on account of swampy ground and loose corduroy. A tramway is also in course of erection to the summit.
"] was also at Dyea, and work is just
beginning on a tramway over the worst
of the trail there. Dyea has no harbor,
and all the merchandise is unloaded at
Skaguay now and transported across on
ba rges.
"Skaguay is a lively camp, but there is
not much money in circulation. Men who
art* staying over there waiting for spring
ure hanging on to their money. I look
for a big rush in the spring hy way of
Skaguay, as 1 believe its wagon road will
enable a man to walk right through to
the lakes with ease. I am going back to
engage in business, but shall not go as
early as some. The lako won't break up
before the 1st of June, and if men go up
there sooner they will have to sit around
iu snowstorms and wait. Last year the
ice went out May 28, but thc Indians said
Tlio   Florence   Cninp.
Florence ia a lively camp. There has
been a strong movement of capital into
Florence, Idaho, this season. Within u
year it is said Florence will havo an aggregate pay roll that will make it one of
the best mining centers iu the state and
there will be six mills running soon in
the camp. A year ago there were but
two running along in desultory fashion.
The Miiiuiel mill started up about three
weeks ago and is doing good work. Cap*
tain N. D. Moore will soon have, a five-
stamp mill working on his Blossom und
as that property has yielded thousands of
dollars when worked hy hand, tho captain's company will doubtless find the
product of the mill most profitable. The
Poorman company announces that a mill
has been ordered for that property, but
it will not he put in place until spring.
The new Hiyu mill will doubtless be in
operation next week and the W'averly
has a new five-stamp mill on the way,
which will replace a two-stamp mill now
in use there. The latter mill, it la understood, will go to the Bluebird mine.
The mill on the Oznrk is running night
and day and is reducing from 12 to 15
tons of rich ore daily. The pay roll of
the Uanner, Waverly and Ozark Companies must be fully $150 per day now, with
a prospect that it will be increased soon,
it was unusually early. It often stays in
until the middle of June."
Tlie   Overland*
The Overland, near old Montana City,
Mont, has made a new striKo on the 300-
foot level of the mine, in the west drift,
a chute of ore being encountered 10 feet in
width, a large portion of it being thickly
studded with the single standard metal.
The discovery was made soon after commencing work on the drift, and where the
high grade waa supposedly all taken out
last summer. No particular search was
made, orders wero simply given to commence work on the drift at tne 300 level
and the discovery was made. Thc effect of the strike will be far reaching on
the great gold lode.     The Overland peo-

PRINCIPALLY  TO   GIVE  UNCLE  SAM.
Sole Survivor of the Constitution and
Guerrlere Fight.
Mayor Strong had a notable visitor
recently in the person of MaJ. William
H. Garland, an ancient mariner, 95
years old, the sole survivor of the
great battle between the Constitution
and the (Juerrlere, which was fought
on Aug. lit, 1812.
"I remember the battle well," said
Maj. Garland, In answer to a question asked by the mayor, "though 1
was only 10 yours old. I wus on the
Constitution as a 'powder monkey,'
and took much pride In the victory—
which was won aftor a half hour's
most daring lighting—as any of the
meu and officers. Then I was In the
fight with the Java four monlhs later,
when we served her ns we had the
Guerrlere.
"1 know I am the sole survivor of
that crew of the Constitution; and
have reason to believe thnt 1 nm the
only survivor of the navy of 1812.
"When Lafayette wns here In 1824
I wns appointed on his escort by President Monroe. Early in 1820 I accompanied Lafayette to France on the
Brandy wlue.
"I also saw the great Napoleon, and
believe I am the only living American who ever hnd that honor. It wns
nt St. Helena. He spoke to ine In good
Knglish, und, laying his hand on my
head, he said, 'My young ninn, I hope
your life will Iw a more happy and
successful one llinn mine bus boen.1
"I knew President Monroe very well,
for he was quite intimate with my father, who, like myself, wns born and
reared in Virginia; and I think I remember him particularly well because
of his apple orchard, where I went frequently with other boys, but with his
permission, for he was always kind
to young folks, and used to pick the
ripe apples for us. I attended his funeral, ns I did thnt of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson wns a frequent visitor
to our house, and I used to enjoy having him talk politics with my father.
"I was honorably discharged from
the United States navy In 1834, and
went to my home nt Hampton," continued Muj, Garland. "When the wur
broke out In 1801 1 wns parted from
many friends and relatives, for I stood
by the old ting, while they went with
the South. I came to New York, joined the Fifty-Sixth New York infantry,
then the Lincoln cavalry, and afterward the Sixteenth Mnssnchusetts. I
was through the war from Hull Run
to Appomnttox, After the battle of
Antletam Con. McClellan mude me a
major.
"When the war was over I returned
to my home at Hampton, nnd have
lived there since. I am now ou my
wny to attend the anniversary celebration of the victories of the old Ironside fleet, which is to be held the 21st
of this month."
Mayor Strong showed great pleasure
at meeting the veteran of two wars,
who, in spite of several wounds, the
loss of the sight of one eye. and *
form bowed by years, Is able to walk
quite well with the aid of n cane and
crutch. His hair is white, and his long
beard of the same color flows over
numerous gold nnd silver medals that
nre on Ills left breast. He Is apparently proud of these, though ho did
not speak of them. But he was quick
to exhibit his pension papers and other
credentials that verify the story he
tells.—Now  York Herald.

The Pearl Oyster.
The penrl oyster Is the animal from
which those highly-valued ornaments,
pearls, are extracted. The pearl is nothing more than, "nacre," deposited In
lhe shapo of globular drops instead of
being spread over tbe inner surface of
the shell, In which ease It ls known as
Slother-of-Pearl.
These valuable shells are found both
In the old and new world. Ceylon Is
very famous for Ils penrl fisheries. The
fishermen are trained Io remain 11 long
lime under water, und nre assisted lu
their descent to lhe bottom of the sea
by a heavy weight tied to their feet.
They rapidly gather all the pearl oysters ln their way Into a basket, and
when In want of air give a signal to
Iheir friends above, who draw them to
the surface by a rope. The oysters are
then left to putrefy for some weeks,
when they are carefully washed, aud

German   Inrouds   In French Trade.
France Imported $0,000,000 worth
of jewelry from Germany last year.
This fact has caused consternation
among the large Jewelry manufacturers ln the former country. The German articles are nearly all of a cheap
variety and a large proportion of the
jewels whicli they contain are imitation. It Is rather striking to see the
Germans cutting Into a branch of trade
In which the French have always been
easily first. French exports of jewelry
aud watches continue to be vefy Important, In the far East—Ohlna and
India -the French have almost entire
control of the watch and Jewelry trade.
Throe Costly Crowns.
The value of the Jewels In the British
crown Is about $1,800,000, or a little
over one-fifth of the cost of the crown
of little Portugal, which Is estimated
at $8,5(10,000. The Sultau of Jahore,
however, on state occasions glitters ln
diamonds, the value of those In Ills
crown and worn on his person being
not less thnn $12,0011,000.

l„tt Four Wives and Three Other
Persons, (or the Purpose of Collecting- Insurance Money, Under
Arrest ln New York.
New York, Dec. 13.—Chas. Zonoli, whe
is suspected of having killed four of his
wives and three other persons for the
purpose of collecting insurance money on
their lives, is still a prisoner at police
headquarters. He continues his protestations of innocence. In his conversation
Zanoli expresses himself as being more
than ready to help the detectives toward
the solution of all doubtful questions and
Chief Detective MeClusky acknowledges
that, the prisoner had offered him assistance in clearing some of tiie details of the
investigations which have cost so much
time nnd trouble. The police hnve learn-
ed Hint the young woman who has been
selected by Znnoll as liis fifth wife just before his arrest on Tuesday last, is Barbara Hoffner, 25 years of age, a resident
of Brooklyn. She hud answered an advertisement of Znnoll under the nnnie of C.
Wngnei*. Znnoli hns a smattering knowledge of medical things, whieh he gained
in liis npprctlceship for the trade of barber iu Germany. He is able to pull teeth
and to perform the operation known as
"cupping," and is familiar with the blister
raised after the cupping process. It is
possible, Chief MeClusky thinks, that he
may be possessed of the same general
knowledge of deadly drugs.
Tlio police are now satished that Zan*
oli did not muke nwny with the child,
Ijena Werna, daughter of one of the prisoner's dead wives. The girl is now in
Germany with her relatives. Tlie body
of Jennie Sehlessingcr, the fourth wife,
will be exhumed tomorrow.

NO DIFFERENCE.
Physical trouble3 of a like nature coming from different causes are often a puzzle to those who suffer pain as to their
treatment and cure, as in the case of lumbago from cold or a strain ln some way
to the same muscles. The treatment of
such need not differ one with th-i other.
Both are bad enough, and should have
prompt attention, as nothing dHables ho
much as lame back. The use of St.
Jacobs OU will Bettle the question. Its
efficacy Is so sure jn either case there is
no difference lu the treatment and no
doubt of the cure.
