Railroad Development.--('lo��c lotiipe.
tit Ion between the ll.C. Southern
and Canwlliin I'uclUo.
" Fort Srele is ��� coming country,"
said A. W. McVittie. manager of the
Etst Kootenay exploration syndicate,
at. the Hotel Spokane lest evening.
'���Two opposition railroads have been
surveyed, and although work hasn't
commenced yet, the competition is
already lively. You know the old
saw about opposition being the life of
trade, I presume?
"One of the roods is a Canadian
Pacific enterprise, and will leave the
main line near Fort McLeod on the
prairie. The Hue continues through
Crow's Nest pass aud up the Kootenay,
passing close to Foit Steele, through
Cranbrook, down Palmer's Bar creek
and the Moyea river to reach West
," The other is the British Columbia
Southern, which will connect with the
Canadian Pacific near the��eoal fields on
Elk River. It runs down the Kootenay
through Tobacco Plains, and joins the
Great Northern at Kalispell.
"I think that both roads will be
built next year. The Canadian Pacific
means business and the Great Northern is backing the British Columbia
So ithern because it taps the coal fields
which il is extremely anxious to reach
as soon us possible."
The interests represented by Mr.
McVittie are large placer fields. His
company bus completed deielopmeut
work and is ready to begin washing
gold as soon us spring opens, and he is
mi Ins way io Ins home iu Barrio,
lint., to spend Ihe winter. Sneaking
of the mining interests of Fort Steele
he observed :
"Two separate gold lends, right in
the vicinity, have boon located, one by
Dougherty & Griiliih and Hanks it
Young. It is a four-foot lead with
porphyry and slate walls. You know
uow gold quartz is. One piece will
assay $J,00u and another it') cents. It
is a good claim, however."- Spokane
This has been u pretty good year for
railroad building iu Bri'ish Columbia,
but next year promises lo be si ill better.
There is a general belief that the Great
Northern Railway company is getting
ready to enter that field. The people
of Kaslo are certain that the new road
lo Three Forks is really one of President Hill's enterprises, aud the people
who live east of the Upper Kootenay
are equally certain that ai.other branch
of tho American line will pass through
thoi'f country next year.
,f6hn White, who bus been pri'Sliec-
*ing about Fort Steele for several
month,:, is registered nt the Colunibiu,
"Tneivis no lu'ck of railroad o.i in
our Country," iJr) suld to ti reporter.
"Tbo Canadian Pacific surveying party has been working all sumiuer.select-
ing the new route west of Crow's Nest
VasSi.   Th.'ir line civs*:* the Kootenay
a few miles south of the fort nnd follows down the Moyea vallev. crossing
the river a second time not far from
the boundary line.
"Another   party  of   engineers  has
been equally busy all summer.     They
; have  been laying out the line for a
railway   from   the   coal    fields   near
; Crow's Nest pass to the Great North-
icrn railway.      These fields have never
'been developed, but it is claimed that
they   contain  large  veins cf   a good
I quality of coal.
|    ''Nominally the road  is to be  built
.by   the   British    Columbia   Railway
j Company.     In reality it is understood
; to be a Gieut Northern enterprise. Tho
I line us surveyed   rims   nearly   south
along   the Elk  river   valley  until  it
approaches the  Kootenay   river, and
follows along its eastern  bunk across
the Tobacco Plains to Jennings, where
it joins the Great Northern.     At first
it wus  proposed  to run   south-east to
Kalispell, but I  understand  that plan
has lieen abandoned.
"This road will cross a fine farming
country. The Tobacco Plains contain
some of the best agricultural land in
Montana, rich bottom ground, easily
cleared and requiring little drainage.
At present there tire only n few settlers
living ou the plains, but ns soon as the
railroad is built there will lie a great
rush for the land."���Spokane Ch ton i

An Editor's Appeal.
Lives of poor men oft remind ns
Honest men won't stand a chance,
The more we work there grow behind us
Bigger patches ou our pants.
On our pants, once new and -.-lossy,
Now are stri|ie of different hue.
All because subscribers linger
And won't pay us what is due.
Then let all be up and doing;
Send your mite, however small,
Or. when snows of winter strike us,
We shall have no pants at all.
A Trial Shipment.
The hauling out of the ore for i
trial shipment from the Silver Kin^
will begin the first of the week. The
noil arrival of ore sacks caused the
delay. These are now ou hand and
the first shipment of ore under the new
management will soon be on its way
to Swansea. Wales. It is now in order
for the N. & Ft. S. Co. to get in
and bid for the handling of this ore.
The track is announced to reach Nelson
ou Monday or Tuesday, and it would
be quite au all round ad'if the first
train going out should curry a shipment of Ne'sou ore. ���Miner.
Prospect* of the III*; Dend.
I.i view of the probability of the present uncertainty with respect to the
value of silver continuing for some
time, the people of Revelstoke have
great hopes that next spring operations
will lie commenced on the gold reefs in
the Big Bend country. One of the
chief drawl-neks which have been in
the way of this district's advancement
has been the difficulty of getting supplies into it. hut an inkling has lieen
given of the irovernnient's alleged intention of spending a liberal amount of
money to obviate this difficulty, and
consequently hopes for the Big Bend
run somewhat high in Revelstoke.
With proper working it is said thai
many of the placer grounds in thut
district could be made to pay hand���

"I only hope Mr. Cory will liecousidorote

"Ijet's make sure of Mm first," Bell,
answered, with precocious wisdom. "I will

The mother and dnu-rlirer were sitting In
a poorly furnished kitchen eating their
breakfast of oatmeal and milk. Neighbor*
who "ran in" unasked were baffled in their
driest for informal iuu us to how the .Mo

Heriiiot wns a conshi to Belle, There was,
however, scant profit in the relationship.
She was never received at her cousin's house
and only coolly recognized upon the street.
X r. ("cry called at 3. Belle and her muili-
it were In the drawing room.
"Allow me the pleasure of Introducing
yon 10 ray mother," Belle aaid after the
1,1-st ureetine*.
"Happy to meet yon, madam���er���oh���
Mrs. Mcflertnot," Cory sputtered awkwardly; "fine day."
"Yes, we are having lovely weather."
Mrs. McDermot answered, shaking his
hand cordially.
"Well. 1 come around to see Belle this
evening on business," Cory liegan bluntly.
"I ben u bearing about her for a year or
two, and 1 thought I'd come out to Washington to see her,"
"And of course my daughter has been
I hearing about you," Mi's. Mcllcriiiot answered archly.   "Everylmdy hears about
you. Mr. Cory.   You are perhaps the most
famous mini in America today."
"Well, yes, them aigs has boosted me a
heap, both iu honor and profits. I'urty
soon 1 won't know what to do with my
money "
"You can use It as other wealthy men
use it," sweetly replied Belle, "You can
touiiil libraries. I wish you would found
one here in Washington aud make me chief
"That's just wliai, I camo here for this
afternoon," Cory iiuswcrod, taking a seat
upon the sofa by the side of Belle, who
blushed ever so little, but bravely pretended imiorencs.
"Why, that would be nice," Mrs. McDermot put in.   "Belle enjoy* a good book."
"Well, If she'll only consent to be my librarian for life alio shall read every book
that ever was mod. and write 'em herself
if she wants to."
Hollo and her mother exchanged looks of
consternation mingled with triumph.
"Come, what do you say? Ijet's get married in a week aud start to Europe. I've
got business there that needs me this minute."
"This Is very sndden," Mrs. McHomint
faltered, looking from one to the other, "I
hardly know what to say. Mr. McDermot
is away on business; besides we shouldn't
like 10 give tip our only child. We���we
bail counted on living with her always.''
j "That's just the thing," Cory answered,
j with supreme satisfaction. "1 don't want
to be Imtbrred buying a house now, aud
this is good enough for a king,"
"Then, UihI bless you, my children."
Mrs. McDermot raised her handkerchief
to her eyes, pressed them a moment and
then left the room.
The wedding wns set for the 1.1th, now
���inly Itiilnysilistaiit. Telegrams were sent
to their absent and perhaps envious relatives. Mrs. John McDermot started north
lit once, telegraphing for hor daughter to
meet her in Washington. She was not the
one to lose any chauce by Iieing neglectful
nt the wrong time. She made sure that
"Miranda" would receive her and her
���laughter. They were at the depot with
tlio linest earriiiKo that could he hired and

"1 would take you home with me, Lucy,
dear," Mrs. Vlruinhi gushed, "but the

an informal alTair; still tliere is a great
deal to do. Mr. Cory won't have It delayed. Ho received a message from Europe
yesterday urging his immediate presence.
He was nn the point of starting at ouce,
but Belle persuaded him to wait."

The wedding was to take piece the next

1 never started to pay a visit with keener
anticipation of pleasure than when I accepted the invitation of my former pupil.
May Gordon, lo pass a few of tho slimmer
weeks nt Morton Hill.
May bad lieen my muale scholar In the
day* when she was May Reeve*, before
John finrdoii came "a-woolng."
As the couch man opened the door a little
figure ran down the broad stone step* and
wa�� in my arms in a moment, half laugh-
Ing, half sobbing, cnresslng me and kissing
me, with loving words nf welcome.
Leading me to a beautifully appointed
room. May allowed me there to gel my lirst
real look into her face.
When I had seen it last. It had liccn
round nnd blooming with th. fresh young
beauty of IS. As I looked now I could
have believed the young wife bad aged 10
years instead nf four.
While I wa�� dressing the patter nf Httls
feet across the hall and a sweet treble calling "Mamma!" prepared me for th. entrance of the sturdy little urchin of 2'5
years, the heir nf Mnrtou hall, nr. a* May
proudly introduced him, "Our Imy Harvey."
But even the proud light of mother lor*
only lighted the pale face for a moment, aa
tiking her Imy by the hand May led lho
way to the dining room, where the bell hod
already announced us.
Here 1 mot my host, ennrtenn* nnd dignified as ever, charming in conversation and
full nf polite inquiry as to Willougbby ami
its inhabitant", and hero, for the first, time,
I boi'iin to find some of the cause of dear
May's pale cheeks and sad eyes.
It was evident to me, though May gave
me no spoken confidence, that the fnurpast
years had been passed iu a vain atumpt to
win the loving praise that had been her
daily portion hi hor own home.
John Oonloii was liberal, affording lh��
wife every pleasure a well filled purse could
give, lie was gentle and courteous nnd It
was evident that he wax a model husband.
May was self sacrificing and devoted, nut
telling even her own heart that she hud
any ground for ui>!'.iipnlnes*,yet surely pining for open, cordial love and praise.
It was a Uui-fuiiy but ulght iu August
when John Gordon, rapping at my door,
"Will yon come tn Mayf She 1* HI, and I
am going for the doctor."
Before morning a tiny girl waa sleeping
in the nursery cradle, hut the mother lay
in a dangerous stupor. Forthreelongweuk*
we watched tb. frail lif. hanging on a
thread, sinking little by llitle, with no
point of hope for the anxious hearts that
loved her.
The most dan;!eronsrymptom, the doctor
nssured us, wo* the patient'* own apathy.
"If you can rouse her," he said lo mu, "to
try to lire, she may yet recover, But a few
dars more of this dull apathy wlil surely
kill her." (^
Then I resolve! to make ono great clTo-+.. |
Vi'ith'iny resolutlou taken, I  went ii.ur
lhat interview with the doctor straight in
John Gordon's library,   He was sitting ia I
a weary, listless attitude, but. rose to place I
u chair fur me.
"May Is better?" b�� naked, with touching
eagerness, Ins luce holing again as 1 shook
my head.
"John," I said, plunging at once into my
errand, "will you let ine speak a few plain
words to you." I have loVeil "liny since she
was a tiny baby, mid I cannot see her die
without nn effort to save her. I hi Move
vou love her?"
"I would give my life to see her well
again," lie said passionately.
"And yet." I said sadly, " 't's ynnr want,
of appreciation that is killing her."
"I do mil understand you," lie said, ar.i
he was perfectly sincere when he spoke
Then very gently I pointed out to hi-i
how faithfully May had I1ilt.11 all luioiy
"But women like those things. My
mother always ko,,t die hoii.-.e uu.l tublu
so," ho said.
"women like litem," I replied, "True,
loving ivooiun like t.iem just in proportion
as thev give pleasure to tl no thoy love."
"Hut surelv they always give plousur".
Ho you iitiiigine 1 do m.L know how luvuiy
my wife is. how patient an.I careful'' A
mother to my boy, who will make him a
noble, true man. Surely I kiiuw my wne
Isiouiost perfcl."
"Toll hor you know If." I s:iJd. "Lot I"t

to her, take her iu your arms and loll her

"lint the excitement, the agitation!" he
suld "I havo scarcely dared to speak to
her or even to kiss her for fear of agitating
"And she Is dying frr wont of those very
loving woods nod kisses,"
1 marched the nurse Into tho next room
wilh the baby and then took John to May's
vide. With a tenderness more tonehiti't
frqnv bis natural reserve he bout over the
|..ile luce and spoke o..o word:
"Darling "
She looked Into his face nnd met eves ��o
full of deep, lino love that involuntarily
the lilted her weak hands to draw her husband hearer.
"Darling." ho repented, and his lip quivered, "how pale you are. and so weak! Oh.
May, my own scoot wife, it cannot Im- you

coine to ihe with baby May in your anus,
as you d.l with Harvey, to ask me if I uui

"Uo you remember!*" she whispered.
"Kciiiciul.tr! Why, May, there is no
word or look of yours I cannot remember."
I stole away. Heart meeting heart wits

An hour later I went lu softly May was
lying in her husband'" arms looking into

Was a faitil Hush, nnd the smile that greet
nl my entrance was like tue smile of four

was allowed to leave Morion Hall, but I
