Mining speculation in both I'm in

ground. Thc stringency is cuuscd by

It is really a great gain since mining

By frowning storm kings occupied,
In Roger's Puss, grand, dim uud lone.
Sir Donald stood in protind array,
And glacier-breasted deep and wide,
With   clouds   outrlung   like   banners
As if the world he there defied ;
And Eagle Peak in sombre pride,
With awful balconies upthroMn,
Seemed with the very heavens allied
In Koger's Pass, grand, dim nnd lone.
I saw the beauty of the spray,
That leaped the turret walls untried
Through dark abysmal depths to stray
And on tumultuous billows ride;
And standing in that dark divide,
With rifts above to heights unknown,
It seemed a glory magnified.
In Roger's Puss, grand, dim and lone.

For kindred souled was everyone
Who caught the rupture enger*eyed

Important Mining  Case.
The principal civil case iu the assize
court held at Nelson last week was
that of Hogg et a! vs. Fai-rell et all.
This case comes from East Kootenay
and was sent to this assize from Kamloops, It i.i a dispute growing out of
a mining partnership, the circumstances of which were about as follows:
C. C. Farrell, Ole Johnson, und C.
Farrell formed a partnership with
Thomas Ruder; the three first-mentioned going out prospecting, Ruder
furnishing supplies. A strike wus
made neu>- Moyie lake by C. C. Farrell,
all three assisting in the locution, the
notice appearing in C. Farrell's name.
The claim wns called the Lake Shore,
When the party returned to Fort
Steele some delay was occasioned in
dividing the properties located, in
which each member of the partnership
claimed a quarter, and C. Farrell left
before the necessary papers were made
out. Since then C. Farrell conveyed
the whole claim to Alex. Hogg. The
present action was to have the court
declare that Hogg held a three-quarter
interest in I he Lake Shore in trust for
C. C. Farrell, Ole Johnson, and Thomas Ruder. The jury found that Hogg
held in trust for the other partners
and a decree was given accordingly.
When the* case was disposed of an
attempt was made to pny the jurors
$2.50 per day, and afterwards Sl.fiO,
but the foreman, O R. Robson, stuck
out for 85, the regular fee in British
Columbia, and eventually received it.

San Francisco, Oct. 11.���A lino display of grit and the liberal use of a
pistol probably saved the life of Mrs.
Leva Maishall, telegraph operator at
Baden, for the Southern Pacific. Late
lust night, L. C. Herbert, office manager, left the office, leaving Mrs. Marshall iu charge. About 15 minutes
later, Mrs. Marshall was startled by
some one kicking on the door. She
was alarmed at the violence displayed
and putting a pistol in her pocket weut
toward tbe door to open it. Before
she reached it the door was kicked in,
and a tall, dark-complexioned man,
wearing a musk, entered and demanded money, leaving his companion outside. Mrs. Marshall drew her revolver, but the villian wus too quick for
her uud fired at her heart, missing it
hy a few inches, the bull entering her
left elbow. Mrs. Marshall then used
her revolver, emptying it on the fleeing robbers. Shu wuited some time
thinking the shots would be heard.
No assistance coming, she telegraphed
truin despiitcher Walters of this city
wbo iiuni-'diutelv sent a special car to
bring her to San Francisco for treatment. Befure the truin reached here a
constable arrived ami commenced a
search for the men without success
Mrs. Marshall is uow ut St. Luke's

Novel Use of ���lion.
The uses of mica ure manifold. One
uf its latest developments is distinctly
novel. An ingenious Australian has
invented and introduced a mica cartridge for spurting and military guns.
The [iliiug insidu the cartridge is visible and a lurthor advantage is that
instead of the usual wad of felt a mica
win! is used. This substance, being a
non-conductor unaffected by acids or
fumes, acts us a lubricant. Where
smokeless powders, such as cordite or
other uitro-glycerine compounds ure
used, mica has a distinct advantage
over every other material used in
cartridge manufacture. Being triins-
purent, any chemical change iu tbe
explosive can be iitouce detected- The
peculiar property it has of withstanding intense heat, is here utilised, the
bieech and barrel being kept constantly cool. The fouling of the rifle is
ulso avoided, the wad actually cleaning the barrel.���Canadian Mining

Hearts by Mull.
A game of cards by mail ? Yes; a
game of cards with one player in New
York aud another player in Washington is now being contested between
Actor Frank Mayo and Charles E.
Evans, his manager. In Washington
the other day the pair sat down to a
series of twenty-five games of hearts,
wi'h a summer trip to Europe on the
issue. The eud of the twenty-fourth
game found them at seven-thirty in
the evening with points tied, Mayo
hud but half an hour to hurry to the
theatre to make up, and Evans but a
few minutes to get to a train to New
York. "Call it off," said Mayo, hurriedly. Evans was about to assent
when thn fairy that gave him ideas
when he was laugh-making in "A
Parlor Match," come to his aid.
"Finish it by mail!" he ejaculated,
startled somewhat himself by the
thought. " Mail ?" queried Mayo; perplexed. Evans gave tiie deck a swift,
'left shuffle, flipped oil half the deck
dexterously, thrust it in a pocket,
dropped the remaining cards into
Muyo's bunds, hailed a passing cubby,
and flung back as lie started for it,
" My deal; your play !" Evans' proposition unfolded itself to Mayo on his
way to the theatre, and tbat night he
wrote his manager's name and address
across the deuce of hearts, stuck a
penny stamp on the back of the card
and dropped it in a mail box. Next
evening his card came back readdress-
ed to himself, accompanied by the
heart ace. Every day one or the
other pursues the game. Next week
Mayo will be playing from New York,
and Evans from Washington. It is
estimated that, the game will take at
least a month to play. It is doubtful
if the country's postal service hss ever
been put to a more fantastic use. ���

How he Mud* a Good Bargain.
"It is the easiest thing on earth to
sell a mine in London for almost any
price, provided you have anything to
show an expert," said Major Frank
.McLaughlin to a reporter of the San
Francisco Post.
"There is also a right way and a
wrong way to go about it. Some
time ago I went to London to
negotiate the sale of some mining
property. Of course the first thing I
had to do was to let capital know
what I was there for. Then, when
enquiries commenced I simply said:
'Gentlemen, I have mining property
to sell. If you mean business and
want ro buy, send your expert but to
examine the property and make a report on it. You will know then what
you are buying.'
"A company was organized. An
expert examined the property and reported favourably, and a meeting wus
held to discuss terms.
"' Now, Major,' said the spokesman
1 we have found that the property may
be worth something. What is your
" 'Two hundred and fifty thousand,'
said I.
������ 'That is more than we expected to
pay. We expected to pay about two
hundred. There is not much difference
between two hundred and two hundred
und fifty. If you will drop the fifty
we will take it.'
" I had ex|-ected to get about I1C0,-
000 for the pi open *,, so with a slow
reluctance I agreed to accept their offer
when the papers were made out I was
surprised to learn that tbey had been

The Crlnle In Vanatuntlnople*
London, Out. Id.���The Constantinople correspondent of the '-Standard"
blames the Armenian Revolutionary
Committees for forcing the Armenians
to close their shops and to maintain
the appearance of a panic, when tlie
Armenians  themselves  are  ready to
resume business. "I visited the
prison,'' the correspondent snys, "and
questioned the. prisoners and found
that there were no serious complaints
against the police. The inspecting
commission sent ti list ol iVi prisoners
for liberation while I was tliere. The
revolutionary lenders are responsible
for the continuance of the dead-lock,"
A despatch to the "Daily News"
from Constantinople says: "Reliable
news Ims been received here tbnt fifty
Armenians were killed and a number
wounded nt Aknhissnr In tbo village of
Adin. on tlie Aniitolinr railway by a
.Moslem inoli. The slaughter occurred
on Oct.. Dili, which was market duy,
when ninny Armenians had gathered
from ndjiu uut villages. Early in the
morning a Turkish rough finding that
the Armenians were not, armed, picked
a quarrel and shot one of tbem. There
wns then raised ou all sides, tlie cry,
"Why hesitate to imissucro
the infidels?" A mob of Turks
armed with revolvers and knives then
looted the market and massacred lhe
helpless Armenians. Their boilies
were thrown into tlie wells. It is
stated tbat the Muilir was responsible
for tlio attack. Ko women or children
were injured, probably on account of
the arrival of the Kiliniiiikiili from the
village of (,'luve, three miles distant,
who made violent efforts at the risk of
bis own life to save tlie Christians.
Otherwise the slaughter would have
been complete. The panic is reviving
iu Constantinople on account of the
isolated attacks and the Armenians
are again flocking into the churches
The police disregard tho safe conduct
curds given to the Armenians .by the
foreign embassies and they insult and
maltreat the holders of them."
The "Chronicle's" Constantinople
advices of Monday suy that M. Cam-
bon, the French Ambassador, M.Neili-
doff, the Russian Ambassador, uud
Sir Phillip Currie, the British Am
bussadur, to day presented to Said
Pasha, tbe Minister of Foreign Affairs,
the final demand of tho powers for
Armenian reforms. If this is not ac
cepted au ultimatum will be presented.
No further uiodification will be permitted. The, scheme drops the demand for a Christian High Commissioner, but otherwise it is identical
with tbe proposals ol lust May. It is
believed, however, that Russia hesitates to force an acceptance because
she fears ultimate Armenian autonomy. News received from Trehixoud is
to the effect that tlie Russian postal
steamer is lying with 2.000 Christian
refugees ou board. Two other vessels,
ulso full of refugees, are there awaiting the arrival of Russian ships to
transport tliein to liaioiiiu.

Systematic Plan of Speculation
originated by us.  All successful speculators operate on s regular system.
It is a well-known fact tbat there are tboiisiuiils of men in all parts of the United States
wbo, by systematic trading through Chicago brukers, make large amounts every veer,
ranging Irom a few thousand dollars for the nisii VI ho invests a hundred or two hundred
dollars up to $--0,000 to 11(11,000 or more bythose wlio invest a lew thousand.
. It is also a fact that those wbo make the largest profits from comparatively small investments on this plan are persons wbo'live away Irom Chicago and invest tlrough brokers
wbo tborougnly understand systematic trading.
Our plan does not risk the whole amount invested on any trade, but rovers hot- sides,
so tbat whether the market rises or falls it brings a steady profit that piles up enormously
