The entertainment given in Firemen's Hall on Wednesday evening,
May 1st, by the Donald Amateur Dramatic Cp. may safely be pronounced
to be one of the most successful, both
financially and otherwise, ever given
in the town, and great credit is due to
the ladies and gentlemen of the oast
for the admirable way in which they
played their res|>ective parts.  .
In ''Sarah's Young Man," Mr. Freeman-Lake took the part of Mr. Mogg-
ridge, and Mr. J. J. Miller us Harry
Fielding wns in good form. Sam
Slowleuf (Surah's Young Man) was
acted to perfection by Mr. Shand Ruttan who kept the house in roars oi
laughter throughout the whole play.
Mrs. Moggrldge was taken by Mrs.
McKay, and credit must be given her
for the natural way she acted her
part us a Sympathetic Mamma, while
Ai'umintn wns cleverly sustained by
Mrs. Griffith. Mrs. Nellis ns Sarah
�����'os particularly good, her acting several times calling loud applause from

SATURDAY, MAY 4,   1896.
There isa mineral belt carrying cop*
per and gold, which can be traced
through the country, for quite a long
distance, beginning close to where Elk
river leaves the Rocky Mountains and
enters the Kootenay; the outcrop follows along the face of the mountains
on the east sideol the valley. Quite a
number of claims have been located on
this belt within the last two years.
The first we come to are about three
miles north from Elk river, a mile from
the proposed Crow's Nest line of the
C.P.R., a well defined ledge about 8
feet in width, assaying from 20 to 30
per cent copper. Continuing northwesterly along the monntain side for a
mile we come to Sand ' Creek, three
claims, 10ft. ledge, 10 per cent copper,
carrying silver and gold; then 12 miles
to Bull river where there are about
eight or nine claims which shew a
good percentage of copper, and prospect well in gold. Eight miles to
Lost creek, close to the Dibble group
of claims, there is a good shewing of
peacock copper ore; six miles to Wild
Horse where there are quite a number
of good gold quartz locations; Lewis
creek 10 miles, Wasa. 4 miles, where
there are also some claims, making the
distance travelled in a straight line
over fifty miles in a north-westerly
direction from Elk river passing close
to Fort Steele. Of course, considering
that the majority of these claims were
not staked off until within the Inst
two years there has not been much
development work done on them, but
still what has been done goes to shew
that in all probability some of them
will turn out to be valuable properties,
this will be a grand field for further
prospecting during the coming summer, and there is no doubt will engage
the attention of some of the numerous
prospectors who are already on their
way into the country.

The entertainment given by the Fort
Steele Jubilee Singers was a great
success, not only on account of attendance but also by the admirable selection of the pieces. The programme
was well arranged and caretnlly carried out. Mr. Barnes opened the entertainment with a neat speech in
which he thanked the ladies for the
musical and literary treat theyhad given
the gentlemen, and stated that the
present one bad been gotten up to repay
the compliment. He acted throughout
the performance as director and discharged his duties in a very creditable
manner. He was ably supported by

is needless to say that each and all of
those taking part performed their several parts with great taste and pathos
and were frequently applauded. The
entertainment was brought to a close
by singing "God Save the Queen."

moved a well deserved vote of thanks
to the peformers, which was neatly
seconded by T. McVittie. We understand it is the intention of the club to
give another performance shortly.

The Rasl* or Character llulltlln*-.
It is undeniable that there is some
confusion in the popular mind respecting truth telling and lying, arising
from a failure to understand the essential elements of truth and falsehood.
So far as the individual himself alone
is concerned, he may make a false
statement without lying, or he may
make a true statement and yet lie in
doing so. Tbe question is one ol sincerity in the case of one and an intent
to deceive in the other. All the sophistry about lies, and especially white
lies, disappears when tested by the
purpose or intent of those uttering
them. When a sincere man tells that
which he believes to be true, he has
not uttered a lie, though the statement
itself may be false. On the other hand
the hypocrite who, keeping within the
bounds of truth, insinuates a falsehood, or by suppressing a part of the
truth conveys a false impression and
does so with the intent to deceive is nn
absolute liar, more despicable even
than those who lie outright with no
pretense of adhesion to the truth. The
distinction should be clearly impressed
on children lest they should mistake
the form for the substance. Sincsrity,
honesty, frankness-these ere the
elements of truth telling; deceit is the
essential element of lying. Tlie harsh
measures sometimes used against children to punish them for slight offences
are very often responsible for the development of a habit of lying. The
child becomes afraid to acknowledge
his offences, finding it much easier to
plav the hypocrite and thus win favors
than to brave disclosure and a whipping. It is a great mistake to break
down a young person's frankness and
sincerity by harsh treatment, for their
are no qualities which better deserve
cultivation. With them, he will be
naturally a truth-teller. Without
them, he may pay respect to the outward forms of truth ss a matter of
policy, but will d*i violence to it
whenever it inay serve his purpose to
do so. It is an impressive lesson to
the young sometimes to point out two
opposito characters in a community ���
one respected and trusted, the other
feared and distrusted���and then get
them to find out for themselves the
difference between the two men. If
they are at all discerning they will
soon see that one is frank, sincere,
honest, and that the other is trickey,
false in word and deed, and very often
a hypocrite. The contrast is greater
if the men are in tbe same class of
society, with respect at least to worldly possessions. Whether they are
rich or poor, a wide gulf is drawn
between them���the one hss troops of
friends, the other only wary and suspicious acquaintances. Truth telling
which is sometimes more than strict
adherence to the letters of truth, is so
essential to the formation of good
character that the yonng should be
taught to esteem the qualities from
which it springs, and not merely be
taught by note the sin of lying.���

The City of Pompeii already existed In
the sixth century, 11. C, as is proved by the
remains of its oldest public building, the
Doric temple. But the date of the first
foundation of the c itv is quite unknown,
says Professor .Mann In the Ijondon Dully
News. It was inhabited by the Oscntis, a
race whose language la imperfectly known
tliruugh some inscriptions. The unmo of
Pompeii is derived from n word belonging
lo this ancient language, the word
"pompe," or "live." Thecity waswresteil
from Its original inhabitants by tlie Sum-
nltes, when they advanced from the mountains to the coast In about the year 4,'0
ll.C. The Osciins nnd Siininttes together,
under tho influence of the neighboring
Greek colonics, developed a civilisation
probably for outstripping that o! the
contemporary Romans. In the venrs
812 11. C. and SIM B. C. the *Snm-
nlto laws led to the subjection of Pompeii by Home. Tliecltywiisdrowninto the
Roman confederacy, during which it pre-
Sirved its independence as to home affairs.
It was only In the year 80 B.C., when the
Saniultes wero conquered by Koine, that
Pompeii l-eciiine entirely Romanized, bci ur
then occupied by .u colony of veterans
under P. Sulla, n nephew of tlio then dictator. The city was presently named Cornelia Veneria I'oni|-einiiorum, after the
family name of the Dictator Stills nut! tlio
goddess of whom ho was a special devotee,
and who then became ns the Voints Pom-
peiaiin, tho tutelary divinity of the city.
At the siune timo a suburb was founded,
probably by tho citizens ulio hnd been
driven out in firvornf the Roman veterans,
which was named 1'ngiis Felix, utter the
byname oi the dictator, mid later, i i honor
of Augustus, P, gns Augustus Fell*; The

Pnmpt. i thow hub ninny *,ate n!llir,rs existed in pn--lti-.ju.il time-:. There was n
Kombenuion, national ussembly or senate,
tt is not known which; n medix or inedix
tutlx, the chief of the city; a kontssturor
quaestor, who wns pro'iably i itrusted
with the city treasurer; and two ultlili.
-ediles, employed in the making of Mini..
Under tho Romans, after Wl ll.C, there
were the usual decuriones, a-diles und
other public officers, also prle.ts, priestesses, ministers aud magisfrates.
Ponipell wns built on the point of nn ancient stream of lava, running toward tho
sea, close to the tl cn full flowing River
Sarnus. The city wiu the natural southeastern port of the plain through which
the river flowed. The sea was then not
more than 1,1100 feet distant from the city,
the river serving as a harbor. On the
banks of the river stood n small suburb of
the city. From tbo busy port wero exported not only the produce of the country
in the interior, but nlso the products of
the plain itself, namely, wlno and v���go-
tables. The liivn was cut into millstones,
which formed a lar o article of export 11
the second century B.C., but later on this
source of profit ceased tube cultivated,and
millstones were even linpt.ric I into Pom-
pell from abroad. The harbor town grew
more and more wealthy, from the fact that
the Roman aristocracy, attracted hy its
beautiful situation and flue climate.bcgnn
to settle in the environs. Tho inhabitants
of Pompeii at that time numbered probably 30,000.
It will be remembered thnt the volcanic
mountain on the slopes of which Pompeii
stood, reawoke after ages of inactivity in
the year 88 A.IX.when many buildings were
damaged or destroyed. Traces of the
earthquake that happened then lire still to
be seeu in the excavated city. Then, in TO
A.D., came the awful eruption which,
while tba people were still repairing the
damage doue in 63, buried the city ton
depth of more than six feet iu small pumice stones and, some time inter, with n ruin
of ashes to a similar depth. Those pumice
stones and ashes were not red hot, us is
generally believed, ns tlie wood has lieen
found seemingly carbonized, hns only been
thus changed by chemical processes.
Truces of real burning on i he nu -nl paint'
lags nre very easily distinguished from tho
red Uut, which, in r me unexplained way,
sverspreads a great portion of the wall
paintings wlien these bin ����� come in contact
with the ashes. The manner in which
Herculaneum was buried was very different, for there the pumice and ashes do
not lie in regular strata, as in Pompeii,
but are mixed together in a sort of muddy
paste, which, hardened into stone during
the course of time, makes excavation difficult. After the catastrophe the upper
stories In the houses in Pompeii protrude-
above the ashes, showing where tlie elty
lay, Digging on a large scale then took
place, and building material nml valuable
object* were curried away. All the marble, except n very few fragments, wns removed In ancient times. Later on the remaining upper stories ot the houses were
destroyed by time, as Very little ot them
has been found. In 78 A.D. most of the inhabitants escaped. It bos been calculated
that only 2,000 of the 80,000 were killed on
the spot, but how fur tbe fugitives were
able to rim Is not known; the fact is that
many of theiu were overtaken and burled
by the falling ashes at a place on tho
banks ot the Sarno, not far from the city,
for in 1880 aud 1881 many skeletons, together with many valuable objects now
kept in the Naples museum, were found
Though the existence of Pompeii under
the fields that then covered it was disco*'
end as early as 1594, the city has onlv'
regularly excavated since 1748, nnd till tlio

Thero are many nicks in the repertory
of tlio sn-ciil led electric- or magnetic girl,
ull of whicli seem, nt lirst sight, tf. involve
either the possession c�� supcrhuhi'iti
strength or else some orrcult power. jVs it
nirtUt-r of fact, horvever, thoy involve nei-
ther, says a writer in Cassier's ���[ngazipe.
���j-yst pnrbof tliein is that they are
tlie ability ���
rliii . ir.ore,
ear i   sot ill. t
tltiry depend furtheii sucuess,
mid the chief reason why they have ro-
iiniiiii'tl mysterious to, tliosi who have
witnessed them is thnt, tbey luire not tried
i*j repent them themselves upun the first
opportunity nX-nled. I.'t u�� dike the first
trick mentioned, namely, t.iat of lifting it
heavy put-son in the chair. Tell him to sit
down nntl bold tho chair against ail
your efforts. He will plant Iris feet
firmly upon tlie floor, thus throwing
his weight chiefly on his feet instead of on tiio chair, as ho thinks ho is
doing. If you are in doubt of this try it
yourself and you will realize that ib is n,
fact. To move the person all that the girt
has to ih. is to get behind and push. In
the stooping position which she assumes
she will ohtuiu u considerable purchase by
bracing her arms nu her knees, und will
thus have no difficulty in raising the chut.*
slightly. Aa the sitter assumes n new
position so its to 11101*0 successfully resist
this effort on the part, of tbo girl she suddenly relaxes ber push, directing tho chair
off to one side or the other. Before the sitter has recovered himself she has raised
the chair again, and so on; the stronger
he is or tlie more hu opposes or strives to
oppose her t he worse lie ts olf and tlie more
successful she will be. The trick is mora
effective if three men try to hold the elinir
down, because of tholr divided elVni-t nml
tlio tendency, whore more tnnri one is opposing her, for them really lo oppose encli
otlier rather than her. H.ie will be perfectly powerless, however, should even il
single person sit listlessly ill the chair,
with uo thought, of opposition.
While hi Chicago I sow the announcement of an electric girl, who included in
her repertory u new trick, or ut. least one
that I had not. vet seen. A stick about
four feet long nud lis thick im it broomstick was produced nnd I nnd another gentleman were requested to hold tt tu n vertical position before us while grasping it
firmly In both hands. The girt, standing
ill front of us und facing us, pinned tliu
palm of her open hand against the lower
portion of the stick, restln-- lion .be sid -
near it u.   and furtlu it   from   hi -sell.
After rubl .ug her open hand up and
down torn few moments, In oriler "to
make better electric contact," ns we were
informed, nil after enjoining us to hold
the stick perfectly ortlcill, i e wero toll
to pn i di ' n on it is hard i we could.
This .ve did until the veins seemed to
stand out on our foreheads; but, oxer. our
wives ss hard ns we c mid, we two strung
men wero tumble to press down hard
enough to make the stick slip prist the
open palm of ber hand. Had the girl
grasped tho stick with her two hands I am
sure sho could not have withstood my
downward pressure alone. 1 woulil havo
borne her, r.tick and all, to the (I ior. Hut
there she stood, with hu. one open liniid
bearing against the sitle of the stick, and
both of us could not, hy our united efforts,
force the stick past that wonder!ul huud.
Surely there seemed something uncanny
about this. But it is very simply explained.
The whole secret consists in insisting
npon tho men holding the stick iu a vertical position' When the girl's open hand
is first placed nguinsr the lower portion of
the stick sho moves it two or three times
up and down, pulling gradually more nnd
more against it. As tills tends to pull the
stick away from tlie vertical, she insists
that the men kept it straight. Thus cautioned, they will exert, moru and mora effort until, when she feels that the pressure
against her hand is sufficient, she instructs
them to push down with all their might.
They do so, und imagine they are exerting
a tremendous vertical thrust, whereas
their vertical eltort is actually very slight.
���tn. 'ifliclciit even to overcome the frlct' %
of the stick nguint her moist liana. 1 no
men are, really, exerting a tremendous
effort, but are deceived as to its direction.
With their bands tightly grasping the
upper end of the stick, thoy are really trying to force the other end of the stick
.uyniiKit the palm of her hand.
Iloa.lleeu's Undiscovered Tomb.
Ruudiceu's lomh still remains undiscovered. Air. Rend, uf the British Museum, has had the trench dug several feet
beyond the centre of the tumulus ou Parliament Hill without having found anything to show for whom that particular
burying mound was raised. So far the
net result of the County Council's quest
lias been a leaden musket ball nnd sume
chips nf china, but both of these are
modern jetsam. There are indication**,
though, that, a portion of the ground was
disturbed about a century ngu.
Fur the rest the soil remains as it was in
the beginning, heaped up���as tliere is no
doubt was the case���tor the purpose of
interring some distinguished pei-snnagu.
It is not. uncommon, it seems, even In undisturbed "burrows" to draw n blank, for
the rain and the slow proooxci of nature
completely destroy all vestiges t..'human
remains that may have been buried in
them. The work, however, is net quite at
nu end at Parliament Hill, for a trench is
lining dug to right and left so as tu thoroughly explore the ground.���Loudon Telegraph.

A titmice to Whack Up.
A curious advertisement appeared in
some of the morning papers the other dny
to the effect that a one-legged man would
hear something to his advantage by applying at a certain address. Though uut one-
legged myself, I called there and found
the advertiser to be a Grand Army man
who had lust ll leg at Autietam. Questioned us tu why he had inserted thu nd
vertisement which attracted my attention,
iie nave this explanation!
"My idea," lie said, "is to find n ninu
who has lost bis leg, Yuu notice that iny
right is xono. Now I pay $8 a pair for my
shoes, audi wear nliout fl**o pair a.vein-.
That makes C40, And besides that I wear

Hypnotism for tho llimf.
Principal Currier, of tlie New Vork Institution, hint ��t-!trtleil the scientific wurld
by his theury that hypnotism may, iu certain cases, be successfully applied with a
view of giving hearing to the deaf. The
average individual knutvs littlo or nuthing
concerning the "eerie science," ns some
writers term it, but scientific and medical
men have shown k to lie uf value iu mental
diseases, and, we lielieve, in surgery.
It would be folly tu say that ii is certainly going to pruve efficacious in removing
deafness; s.ill the theory advanced unit
the arguments used are plausible enough
to jusi ity experiment. All the great inventions that are now being of su much
service It) mankind were ridiculed and denounced ut the beginning, mid Principal
C'lirrier will be exceptionally lucky if his
theory is nut maltreated and abused by un ���
believers. Kcults will show whether his
position Is tenable or otherwise.���Deu!-

Onco In a while n minister tricks his

Chicago nnlil n cuuple of years ngu, snys
the Tribune of that city, n preacher who
had reduced "sermon-lusting" to a regular

several fresh anecdotes; and finally he returned to the original text,, but evolved n
fresh ending i.ud iutrnducu.1 a pneticai

kuowii religious .author. By melius of
these tricks and careful tubulin ion he was
only compelled to write a complete sermon once in three weeks, and even this
labor was softened by tlie "Item-box''
which graceil his study table. Ill this l-ox

middle uf the week, the choir director
wuuld ask fur the subject of the following
Sunday he would invariably answer that
lie had not decided. At the recent rehearsal the same thing would occur, and at last,
the poos, distressed lender fell into lhe
habit of himself choosing tbo subject and
arranging his part uf the service In accordance. Just befoiv the opening hymn
ho would send the pastor a slip uf paper

There is n Siberian dish called "pill
man," that makes good eating in Cumuli!
on a cold tlay, and can lie made to utilize
scraps of cold meat, though the Russian
dish culls fur fresh meat. Chop quite line
about a pound of cold meat���steak, it you
use fresli meat; put with ic one small
onion aud season well; then add a cup of
rich gravy. If tho meat is fresh, cook fur
a few moments in tlie gravy, for the Canadian palate likes well cooketl meats. If
the meat has been cooked, simply heat it
tliruugh ami set aside to cool while you
make the paste. Heat up one egg; then
add it to a pound uf Hour, salted slightly,
and work into a stiff, tough dough, with
as Utile water or milk as possible. Roll
the dough very thin and cut out round
pieces, in the center of whicli put two
tiililespoonfuls of meiit. Gather the edges
up and pinch together, as fur apple dumplings then put tlii-m iu a kettle of boiling
soup stock. As soon ns they come to tlio
surface of the stock they aro sufficiently
cooked. Serve them with a gravy broth
male uf incite- butter, with n dash of
vinegar iu it, or with a boat ot the broth
iu which the.; were boiled.
