Tlio council has nothing to do with
politics or so culled women's rights ;
its basis is co-operation among the
different organizations to which women
belong. It came into existence iu the
Women's Congress held ut the World's
Fair. In this province, local councils
have been formed at Victoria nnd Vancouver. A .local Council is formetl by
the affiliation of any society of which
women form part us Girls' Friendly,
Temperance, Mission, and Church Aid
Societies. In n new country the formation of any of these societies is a
benefit to women whose existence in
such district is more or less ileiid and
alive. By meeting in such clubs they
encourage each other to fresh exertion
Mrs. Spragge then described the work
done in Donald und combated the
assertion that such places us Donald

About a dozen ladies were present
anil they discussed the matter in many

enthusiastic they resolved: ���'Thnt iu
the opinion of this meeting a branch
of the Women'* Council could be formed when some of the auxiliary societies
had bean organized." No representative from among the officers of the
Christian Endeavor Society wns present, so it was not known whnther thut

A Tourist Cut.
Says the Montreal Gazette: A
strange passenger arrived in on the
Canadian Piici'lis express from the
west, yesterday. It was a Maltese cat.
whicli had been put on board the train
at Minneapolis on a tour round the
world. From its conduct at tho Windsor depot it certainly seemed to feel all
the responsibility of travel, for on its
arrival it took up its quarters in the
baggage-room, and did not move out
until the Huston and Maine steamed
out, when it wus taken on board ami
placed in charge of the conductor, who
will see it safe to New York. Tho intention of the engineers of the trip is
that the cut shall leave New York for
London, thence to Australia, returning
to its native city via Vancouver. The
trainmen say it is a really fine specimen of its species, uud being u young
cut has every prospect, seeing that it
bus the proverbial nine lives of any
ordinary cat, of accomplishing its
mission without let or hindrance.

The Book of Job, written about 1520
B.C., describes very accurately several
processes of smelting different metals.
Ono morning, in the rtnrly southern
rpring time of August, when the air wus
heavy with the scent of mimosa blossoms, a company of white-uniformed
mounted troopers were going through
the various maneuvers necessary for
The ground they used for this pur
pose was a flat on one of the outlying
lands of nn Australian town���a steep
hill swelled abruptly on one side of it;
on the otlier, and at some distance from
tlie exercise ground, the crumbling
banks of a river fell sheer to its bed,
where through the waste of rough shingle
and debris the fast narrowing stream
(lowed, that carried the last of the winter's rainfall to the sea.
The troopers were doing their revolver drill, which is to ride in rapid
succession past the snlnting.point, and
to fire ut it target that was placed upon the hillside, in tho instant of passing. Thejj skill in this pructice
was such that at least some part
of the target wus hit in each action of
Their well-trained gray horses curveted nnd pranced, as they were reined
iu after the target was passed, us though
they rejoiced in their smart and well-
kept trappings, while the bright bits and
curb chains caught the sun's rays und
flushed vibrations of light again.
Suddenly, above tiie noise of the galloping horses, the sir is rent by n shriek,
nud thu man wbo rode next beforo the
hist is seen to throw ud his arms on the
instant of the last report, then to lean
forward heavily upon his horse's shoulder, and to slip from thence helplessly
out of his saddle to the ground.
All this hns taken place before tho
trooper who followed him can realize
that his last shot carried wide, or what
indeed has happened.
Tho exercise is stopped while the
troopers hurry to the fallen man, whose
white charger, through fear sped still
for ii little di.-itrmce, stands now looking
towards his late rider���with neci: i
stretched high and head turned inquisitively, the delicately-veined ours pricked
anxiously forward, while his nostrils are wide and snort With -terror, for his rider lies over there
on the grass and is dying. And ns his
failing speech strains for each gasping breath his voice sounds shrill
nnd thin, uttering in-thin.; but imprecations upon the man who, by sumo unfortunate inisclianve, bus shot him. He
is told by tho other men, who have
come tn his nssistnne-*, it hns been en
accident, but he will uot lielieve it.
"Accident I" he scornfully repent",
and with awful curses ho emphasize-
his unbelief, while his face is passim,
and pain-rigid, and his eyes have tin
cold-hate stare in them, as they are fixed
with unforgiveuess npon the man who.
kneeling by him now in an agony of
grief, pleads for one word, one look, or
indeed for any sign of pardon.
"God help me, Moloney!" he cries.
"Believe me, I did not, I could not
know I I'd shoot myself a thousuuu
times rather than kill's man like that.
Say you'll forgive ine, Muloney; say
yon believe me I"
But the other's voice rises again with
fury to articulate his unbelie', to leave
bitn voiceless then forever.
A kindly hand lends Heath away from
the closing scene, in pity for the awful
situation of the dying man, in pity ior
the hopeless grief and self-reproach of
the living.
Tlie above happened more than 20
years ago. Aud although Heath has
supported and educated the family
which were left unprovided for by the
death of Muloney, und bus done everything in his power to make amends for
tho loss he had caused them, he liuiBel.
can never forget the dreadful scene aud
at times such un outburst as the following occurred:
'Doctor���doc���tor," Heath calls from
his bed iu a querulous aud excited voice,
"doctor! Ah nurse���hero you'll do.
Come here. Come close nurse. I want
to whisper it"���looking round suspiciously���"he'll wake up and swear wiu-u
he hears me speak."
"Nurse, yon know Moloney?" hc
questions, hoarsely, turning his restless
eyes to her face, und with Uis trembling
right huud points towards a bed nu the
otlier side of the long ward, while thu
other fingers tho bedclothes nervously.
" Nurse, can't yon see him! You cun
see his white charger then. Look, look
there���just there by Daley's bed I What,
you cant ? Ob I" shrugging his should
era with a hopeless moan. Then with a
sudden movement, catching her ham!
and sitting up in Ins bed, he tries:
" Why, look I There he Hands pnwlug
the mosquito net He'll tear it into u
thousand rags, nurse, and knock poor
Daley's brains out. I any, make haste,
lie's climbing np the blsnk wall now���
the brnte's afrald-at lost. Hit don't
you see him T Let me go !" as the nurse
forces him firmly back upon his pillows.
"un, ntfrse," sighing reprunulititlJy,'
while his eyes ovoid her und l-eini.iu
fixed while he spenks With great rapiu-
ity, ond the vijords flow as in a recitation: "Look! He stands still now, his
neck stretched out, tho pink of his
nostrils showing and distended by fear
his eyes shino and glow like coals in the
fierce sunlight, the swelling veins tell
how quick his hot blood throbs; look nt
his eurs listening, listening for the voice
that will never sound again, at his
quivering lip that shall never know again
lho touch of that rider's bund, lur it lies
there upon��� the grass so colli aud still.
Get the horse off that curtain���lie's mud,
I say."
The doctor camo into tho ward ns
Heath made another effort to spring ont
��� of bed. and catching sight of him lie
burst out with n wild laugh: "Ha. ha!
Hit, ha! That you. doctor? I Fhot
Muloney���shot him dead���cnnldn t help
���pistol wont off���accident I" speukiug
in ti flippant wny. " Oh. no���no, no I"
with a weary moan, nnd returning again
to simply mechanical words:
"I see Muloney falling from his horse
like a leaden weight upon tho ground,
and I following on my charger so close
almost trample him under foot, Define
1 can swerve from off tho truck. I see
him lying on the grass, while the red
blood from the wound stains his white
uniform. With a wider margin ns it
flows I lienr tile sound of its quick regular dropping upon tho ground where it
collects there dark and still, and above
I hear Muloney cursing tun!" 11" paused
for a few seconds und went on ui-gii-
ntentatively, while the doctor had turned away to take his hypodermic syringe
out of its case.
"All right ten minutes ago���hnrd ns
nails���and sitting his horse like a rues.
And now���living���and by my luiiiu."
He took his right hand in his left, and
looked at it for u few minutes in silence.
��� "What say, doctor?" letting it full
again. "Accident? No���no-no���no!"
he shouted. "Ah!���What aru yon doing
���to iny arm';" as tlie ueedlo of tliu
syringe pricked throng',', the skin.
"Littlo morphia���keep him quiet.-

spoke to tho nurse.

closiug his eyes presently he muttered
'vacuously for a few moments, aud
sighed htovily���soon tlie words caiiio at
longer intervuls and wero less distinct;
then, ns tho weary eyelids closed, lie
snid drowsily, "Nnrse.are���yon���th*-!*.-?"
And bis huud clasped iters convulsively.
"Nurse, will yon���will���you stop

opening his eyes to look at her, uud
presently he fell asleep.

Steele. The team wus etn ployed hauling timber for the new Government
bridge and wns it- charge of I hive
Smith, a careful driver Smith hnd
examined the ice tiefore attempting to
take the team across and considered it
perfectly safe. However, when he
tried to cross with the horses and
sleigh the team broke thro' and were
drowned, The loss is a serious,one to
Hyde Baker, who' considered them
worth $400.

Six teams are constantly employed
h-fullng timber and about thirty-five
men are now at work.between getting
put timber and building the piers.
Work has just commenced on the
St. Mary's bridge, nnd it is to be hoped
lhat this work also will he pushed forward-without delay.
The pupils of the Industrial school,
to the number of sixty, recently visited Mr. Galbraith at the Agency, where
they were entertained at dinner. After
they had enjoyed their repast, as the
dny was bright and pleasant they
amused themselves in out door sports,
and in the evening they returned to
St. Eugene's, much pleased and delighted with the day's outing.
A meeting of the miners is called fot
Saturday evening, Feb. 23rd, when
several very important matters will be
discussed. The meeting will he a
thoroughly representative one and
questions relating both to placer and
quarts* mining will be ventilated. A
report of the proceedings will be forwarded to the Kit a.
Mr. Jennings is down with his
shaft IHO feet, he is not far from bed
rock as he is working amongst large
boulders. Much interest is taken in
this work us it will open a large area
of milling ground, if the prospects
found by Mr. Jennings are encourag

Our Assistant Commissioner of L. &
W. from Donald, is looked for shortly,
he is very popular in this section. We
would like to see him more frequently
aS he is a person of large experience in
public works, and his supervision
occasionally would be extremely beneficial here -a-here such important government works as are now going on,
entailing such a large expenditure of
the public revenue. It is to be hoped
he will find time to pay several virfits
during the progress of the work and
before it is finished. . His advice and
counsel are essential to the success oi
tlie work.

Miss Smith, the public school teacher at Windermere, will likely spend
her Easter vacation at Fort Steele.
She is extremely popular at the Lakes
and is spoken of a* an earnest worker
and one who takes a deep interest in
her pupils. Thro' her exertions and
aided by kind friends a church is now
being built at Windermere. It will be
a neat and commodious structure nnd
an ornament to the village.
A very good joke is told by our
genial friend���the wit of Fort Steele.
A few days ago an unfortunate prospector was arrested and taken off to
jail for imbibing too much G. & W.
A lady happening along ut the time
noticed Constable Barnes leading the
unfortunate along. She enquired of
our friend tbe charge against the man.
The charge madam he said with u
graceful bow is "Waving the American flag and singing Irish songs."
"Served him right," she said and
passed on, and our genial friend bowed
in the politest manner and said ' Certainly, I agree with you."
Rufe Kimpton has just arrived at
the Fort with a load of hogs. As Rufe
is a rustler it is likely ho will be able
to dispose of thorn, but bringing dead
hogs from Winnipeg to Fort Steelo is
like "carrying coals to Newcastle,"
He reports sleighing pretty well none.
We are now enjoying summer
weather, very warm, and the snow
fast disappearing, in a few days there
will be none, and the ice is going out
of the river, so that there is really
nothing to prevent the bridge bring
pushed thro' without any hindrance.
