in which nearly every one present took

It is n stern-wheel flat-boat propelled

equipped with a on-horse power marine
engine nnd boiler and adapted in every
w.-ly for navigating Idaho's great
waterway. Willi a slight alteration
it could be transformed into a steam
dredge ami used lo scoop up sand and
gravel from the bottom of the stream.
That has never lieen attempted. As in
the past, operations are now* confined
to working bars out of the bod or
channel of the river. Tiie method pursue 1 is to anchor alongside one of
these gravel .'..,,���r-its and by the use of
scrapers bring the material to be handled within the reach of the gold-
washing machinery with which the
craft is rigged. The gravel is scooped

anxious to see Mr. Kellie to urge 11)1011
him the importance of having a wagon
road built-from Thomson's Landing to
Trout Lake, and having the work
commenced as early in the spring as
possible, so that it will be of use next
summer. The present trail is perfectly
worthless for the shipment of ore.
What is required for thut purpose is a
wagon road from Trout Lake to Thomson's, corliuued 011 to the deep water
below Kincaid's; and good branch
trails for rawhiding ore to the main
road. Now that some five or six of
our claims have reached the shipping
point better roods are necessary.
The stores at Thomson's and Trout
Lake aro pretty well stocked with provisions, so that it will not be necessary
to make trips to Revelstoke during the
winter.
Mr. B. F. Ituniey got into Jack
Stanber's cariboo corral! last Friday
and shot a line young cariboo which

Among the Europeans'rescued by
Mr. Stanley in his last African expedition was Vita Hi.ssiiu, the medical
officer of tho Equatorial Province.
Like his chief. Eniiii Pasha, he intended to return to his post, but a sickness,
which resulted fatally last March,
prevented. Before Ins death ho had
'-' ft"' s'"l'" written, though not published, a book
I iu which ho gave 1111 account of the
events which took place in the province after the Miilidis' rebellion. The
first 1 :t of this work has recently
appeared under the title, "Tho Truth
aboul En.in Pasha," and contains
much that is interesting about life on
upper Nile.
Ainonii other things he'describes a
curious custom which prevails at weddings among the Soudanese Arabs.
After various ceremonies, including a
procession and a marriage feast, (he
almost invariable accompaniments of
weddings iu the East, the bridegroom
is led, about uineo'clouk in the evening
into a large, ditnlv-lighted room. Here
011 one side, huddled upon the floor,
are the female relatives and friends of
the bride. In the farther corner are
four or five maidens of the same height
and size, wearing precisely similar
clothing and closely, veiled. One of
these is the bride, and the young man
has to find out which it is. If he has
been wise, he has bribed one of the
old wome'. spectators to give him a
secret sign by which to guide his
choice. If not, he attempts to seize
the veiled figure whom he suspects to
be his bride.
If possible, she slips from his grasp
and runs away, he iu hot puisuit. An
exciting chase through the chambers
follows, until lie is* able to catch her,
when he tears away the veil Irom her
face. If it is his bride, the game is
ended, and another ceremony, called
the Ghalwa or Bride Dance, begins.
But if he has made a wrong choice, he
must try again, aud the captured girl,
after rearranging her disordered dress,
takes her place again among her companions.
Again he makes a select ion ; and
after another long struggle succeeds in
unveiling a second maiden - possibly
only to find he hns caught the same
girl over again. Many hours may be
consumed in this way, and sometimes
morning dawns before the unlucky
bridegroom secures his bride.

One Way of Drawing 11 Tooth.
At one time in my early practice in
a country town, said a dentist, there
came to me a very nervous woman tu
have a tooth extracted. She carried
on so much that 1 could scarcely get
her into the chair, nnd as soon ns I
put the forceps near her mouth, she
screamed and bounced around so I
couldn't do anything with her. After
two or three visits, each worse than
the other, I suggessed that I should
take  her to the nearest large town
where a dentist administered gas.
Well, the tooth hurt her so that at
last she consented and I took her there
about twenty-five miles by rail. I
went armed with a pair of forceps as a
matter of habit, and when we got to
the place and she saw the gas-bag and
other appliances, she had hysterics
again.worse than befoie, and I hud to
up and take her buck home, I wus
thoroughly provoked, but she haa
money and was paying for her foolishness, so I tried to restrain my Mings.
About ten miles from town, as the
train was plodding along at the rate of
twenty miles an hour, and she was
holding her jaw and I was holding
mine, in the seat beside her, we struck
a broken rail, and the last thing I
know we were rolling down uu embankment and being piled up in a very
promiscuous fashion. I don't know
how it came about, but I wasn't hurt
much, and when my senses were fully
restored I dragged my patient out
through the window and laid her ou
the hank near hy. She was pretty
badly bruised and wns knocked senseless, and as I was endeavoring to restore her a brilliant thought occurred
to me. The next moment I had out
my forceps, and the next f had out
the troublesome tooth. Two hours
later one of the doctors who had been
summoned had restored her to consciousness, and as she opened her eyes
and saw tne standing by her side, she
clapped her hand to her jaw. and exclaimed : -
'��� Oh doctor, I knew it would bo terrible, but I didn't think it would so
bad us that. However, though, it is
out at Inst."
Then she went to sleep, and it w#s
a week before she knew the real facts
of the case.���Tit Bits.
Kootcnny'a Door la Open.
A car-load of supplies consigned to
Contractor Larson, arrived over the
Nelson & Fort Sheppard railroad this
morning.
Thus Ihe promise made by President
Corbin, over a year ago, has been fulfilled even in the face of a gigantic
financial depression which could not be
for seen.
The first locomotive, with the track
laying machine aud rail and tie curs,
came around the side-hill into \iew of
Ne'son early Sunday morning.
Every three or four minutes the
locomotive's whistle tooting, and
train's advance of thirty-two feet, announced the laying of a set of rails.
This was kept up all day Sunday..
Nearly every one who could manage it,
went out on the grade to see the track-
laying machine work. Those who
have seen the machine work will
doubtless wonder why it has been
termed labor-saving.
It assuredly does prevent many from
securing work on the road, but what
of the men working with the machine.
If you have ever seen a man work real
hard you should compare him with
any of those who work on tho machine.
The remaining three miles which yet
remain to be laid will be completed
within the next few days. The material trains can be heard coming aud
going at all hours of the night, and the
whistle is sweet music to the cars of
Nelson it es.���Mi uer.
Why Mr. Kelly Turned Tuiln Bobber.
The Lewiston Evening Journal says:
Mr. Thomas Kelley, of Boston, late
proprietor of the Columbin .Mills in
Lewiston, who was killed in a railroad
accident at Chester, Mass. Sept. 1, hnd
travelled about the country a great
deal in his earlier life. '
'-He used to tell me a story about
how he escaped being robbed on a train
in Arkansas once," said a travelling
man. "He had 9500 or $1100 about
his person, nnd also had a revolver
which some one had asked him to take
with him as a protection, but which
he did not believe in the .least would
protect him. '
"Going through a wild piece of
country, the whistle suddenly sounded
down brakes, and a dozen or so train
robbers jumped on. Mr. Kelley saw
ono begin at the upper end of the next
car, and work down toward his car,
emptying the pockets of all hands. Iu
his pocket was a cool half thousand
aud more. He didn't care so much
ubout the inuiie.'. as 1! ��� thought of
giving it up tc u roii'uer. Suddenly a
thought seized him. Jumping up and
pulling out the revolver he turned to
the astonished people in the car, some
of whom he knew, und said: " Now,
gentlemen, doliver your vuluables,"
uud started down the car.
"Just then the robber in the next
car, having finished his voyage of that
section opened the door and looked in,
saw the ferocious manufacturer handling his revolver and took him for one
of his own gang. He didn't enter the
car but got oil, Mr. Kelley thus saved
not only himself from robbery, but tho
others iu that carriage. The train
started on, and Mr. Kelley returned a
Waterbury .vatch that he had relieved
a young bridegroom of, and put up the
revolver. "I never told this story to
many people, because I didn't expect
they would believe it," said Mr. Kelley

NELSON'S    MONCMENT.
I'lic Vounj* Men Who Wanted to lllow
It Up on Trial.
Montreal, Dec. 2.���The trial of ex-
Proniier Meroicr'n sou and two other
young me" charged with uu attempt
to blow up Nelson's monument begun
today. Ex-Premier Mercier appeared
in defense of his son.
Detective Laiontuine testified that
on the night of the attempted explosion
a young inau came to the central police
station and informed him that several
of his friends intended to blow up Nelson's monument. He had thought the
proposal a joke and laughed when the
youngniaiipersisted.Ht decided towatch
aud went with several constables to a
spot near the monument and watched
and arrested the young men when they
arrived. Ou one of the prisoners wus
found a dynamite cartridge. One oE
the accused was asked what they intended to do with the explosives ami
replied : " We intended to get rid of
the monument."
Hon. Mr. Mercier cross examined
the detective tisked him if he did not
think it would have been better to
warn the families. The witness said
he had no time to do so. He refused
at the arrest to give the name of tho
party who informed him of the plot
but when ordered to do so by the
court, he said it was Gaston Hughes,
a son of the chief of police. Braverd,
of the Hamilton Powder Co., says if
the cartridge found on the young man,
had been exploded in one of the boles
in the pedestal of the monument, he
believed it would have entirely destroyed the monument.
The case was adjourned till next
Saturday.
A Bud Rule.
Chicago, Dec. 2.���As a result of
Chief Brennau's recent order requiring
all persons on the streets a, midnight
to give..., -   tnt of tlie"i3elves.
Detective Conway, of the central
station, was shot ..nd seriously wounded by one of the detectives of a private
agency yesterday morning. Conway
and his partner became suspicious of
the movements of the private detectives, and after inquiring their business
and receiving a surly answer placed
them under arrest. One of the private
detectives then fired two shots full in
Conway's face. The sound of the
shooting brought a policeman to the
scene. The men were taken to the
station where they gave their names
as A. Holmes and John Scotten. Detective Conway's condition is critical.

JOHN'S FAITH.
John Tlbb-ttt was an Emlishmnn and
lived iu Cornwall, says Tho English Visitor.
lie was a stonemason by trade, tall and
dark, broad shouldered and lean, with a
dark, handsome face, hut ia looking at him
you particularly noticed tils great, lustrous
liliieoycs, andif you should apeak of htm
you would lie sure to lneniiou their wonderful brightness. About a quarter of a century ago Iter. Mr. Iluzlein was holding his
evangelistic meetings in Cornwall, nod the
description of the fervor and excitement of
them reads like a romance, but all night
pmver meetings are a very usual thing
among the most earnest and excitable people. Join. Tibbett, after his conversion,
was a wonderful hand to pray (as they
called It there). Ills words came like Ore:
they blazed and burned into the very soul;
they would simply electrify you. they coin
pelled you to listeu whether you would or
not.
Ono (V-ob-T he undertook some work at
a distance from his home and went to
board with a Mrs. Biin. ll, who kept a fine
house and was of distant kin to him. Early
in the morning, shortly after Mr. Tlbhett'a
arrival, Mrs. Drown was in her dining
room putting some finishing touches to her
pretty breakfast table���and a lovely clean
bright room It looked, with its large bay
window and ltd flowers and birds, open fire,
and last, bill tint least, the breakfast table
with snowy damask and gleaming silver
and beautiful old china
Airs. Brown took a pride In her home
and had Inherited ntiitiy things from her
mother, who kept the house before her.
As she moved about her work the dour
opened with a bang and in rushed Mr. Tib
belt with a huge carving knife in his hand
and his eyes gleaming even brighter than
usual. ".Mrs. Uroivit," he said, '���Futhor (he
always called God rather) has vouchsafed
me a vision. Father tells me that you have
always been a good servant of his and that
lie would have you with him, so lie has
chosen ine as the 'instrument of his divine
will. I am lo cut your throat with this
knife ami let your pure spirit free to go tu
Father,"
Mrs. Drown looked up at the towering
form of her kinsman and could see the
lilaze of insanity iu his eyes. Then she
calmly'smiled, as she quietly faced death,
mid said: "If your heavenly Father haa
"���Ivuti you this work to do, you must do it,
end I must submit to my fate, but we had
better think of the best way of doing It
You were always counted a neat workman.
Look around at this pretty, bright, clean
room. Would.it not be a pity to spoil it
with my gore! I hare thought of a good
plan. Do you go up to your room and get
your basin tn catch the blood in, and I can
lay my bead over it. and you can do your
work neatly, ami also it will give me time
to prepare to meet my Heavenly Father."
"Why. Mrs. Brown,!' said .Mr. Tibbett,
"what a goisl plaul I never thought of
that. It would he u pity to spoil this lovely room, now I think of it. Do yon wait
here, and 1 will make all haste to do your
bidding."

was always longing to see Ins dear friend
who had converted him, for Mr. Ilii/.lein
he was sure, would see how perfectly re
covered he was and let him go free. One
day be was iu the yard with some of the
keepers, he looked up at Ihe high, roughly
built, old wall which num-nuded the instl
tution and said: "Father can dn all things
He could free me now if he would. Look at
the cobblestones In that walll If he willed
Father could give me power to cllmhnvei
���I, U, 8, 4, 5, li, I. S, It, and over." With
that he made a rush, counting aa he ran,
few np the aide of the wall aud disappeared over the top.
Then there was a great commotion In the
Institution. They sent people near and far
to look for John Tilil-ett, He seemed slm
ply to have disappeared. All round the
outside of the asylum wall there grew a
hedge, thin except near the big gates, where
it was very thick. Aa noun as John Tibbett found himself over the wall, he crept
quickly round to tho thick part nf the
hedge near the gates and lay down, per
tectly covered by the evergreens, and
'. hough they searched carefully they never
thought of looking for him beside their
very portals.
He kept quiet till the pursuit was over
nnd the darkness of night hail nettled down
on the land. At last, when he thotigiit all
waa safe, he started out. making Up his
mind to go to Mr, I la/.lcni, who lived quite
a distance from there.
He walked on and on under the friendly
shelter of the night till he came to a cottage where they were having an all night
prayer meeting. They were on their knees
when he entered, uo no one saw bis con
vict's dress. Then' Iieing a pause, lie lifted
np his voice and gave them one of his wonderful prayers till they were completely
carried away. So when t hey got off theii
knees one of them took him home and gave
him food and shelter and a change ol
clothes, and he went un hia way after the
darkness had fallen over the land the next
night, And so from house to house he
walked, literally praying hia way along.
There was an arm nf the sea between Mr.
Hazlem'a house and the mainland, and riding at anchor on the waters waa a British
ship of war. Wheu John Tibbett got to
this water, there waa no way of getting
across, so he said, "Father can make nit
swim as he helped me to climb the high
wall." He walked Into the water, and although he never swam before his faith waa
so strong that he swam to the ship and
climbed up the sides. The sailors were
very much alarmed at first, but afterward
crowded round him, and he gave them an
address and one of ins wonderful prayets,
Then he quietly slipped over the other aide
of the ship and swam to the shore and arrived at Mr. lla/.lem's bouse all dripping
wet, iVIr. Haziem kept him with him for
several years, hut he finally went permanently mad and,had to be shut up, which
broke hia heart, aud he soou died.���Exchange.

THE   PACIFIC   PROVINCE.
Ill   tbe   November   number   of tbo
Western World tbe editor speaking of
his annual visit  to British  Columbia,
savs :     Each visit  moro firmly roots
the opinion  formed  on the first one���
that British   Columbia   is a province
with great potential wealth, the development of which will be attended with
astonishingresul's.    The mountainous
character of the country  has hitherto
made its   richest  regions   possible of
access only  at great expense.      Will
the exception of wagon roads nnd the
water   routes of   the   Columbia   am
Thompson  rivers  there  has  been  no
communication in the interior or tipper
country except  along  the main line of
the Canadian Pacific Railway.'   Realizing   the   necessity    of     improved
means of   transpoitation  the C.P.R.
Company and the Provincial Government have   wisely  taken  action.      A
short line, the Columbia ami Kootenay,
which connects Kootenay  Lake with
the   Columbia, has   been in  operation
for a little over  a year, a  branch  line
is now being   built  from   Revelstoke
south to deeper water on tho Colli in bin,
and  a line   from  Nakusp  is already
well under way to the heart of  the
rich Slocan mining district.    Tbe Nelson nnd Fort   Sheppard   railway, an
extension of   the Spokane and Northern line, from  the  international boundary  to  Nelson, is   about completed.
These   linos   will   give the Kootenay
district great advantages and in consequence of the high grade of ore there
yielding   precious   metals, next   year
should see the investment of considerable capital.    The construction of the
branch line Irom Squamous to Okauagau Landing   has opened  up the picturesque and fertile Okanngan valley,
the southern portion of which, rich in
minerals,   has   been   brought   within
touch   by  a  connecting   steamer   on
Okanngan Laki.     Attention will now
be directed to  the opening up of two
other   important   sections,   one     the
Nicola valley, already   finned for its
stock ranches and almost certain to be
more famous  for its  coul;   the other
old Cariboo, of gold lame, where with
cheap   transportation     and     modern
methods of mining  a large output of
gold may be again looked for.
So far farming has only been engaged iu to a limited extent. Cattle and
horses are raised on a large scale, but
pig and poultry raising has been much
neglected nnd as a consequence large
quantities are imported. The same
may be said of dairying. Fruit growing has within the last two or three
years been gone about in a more systematic way aud in a short time a
large acreage of young orchards will
be in bearing condition. Hop growing
is attracting a good deal of attention,
especially in the Saanicli district of
Vancouver Island, and in the Squiini-
isli valley, at Agassiz and in tlie
Okanag.tU Valley on the mainland.
The quality produced is excellent i nil
there is little doubt that this crop will
prove nn exceedingly paying one.
A large amount of important work
is being done in the reclamation of low
lying lands along the Pitt, Fraser and
other rivets, by the making of embankments to prevent their being
overflowed. This reclaimed land is
exceedingly rich and snitable for a
large variety of crops. Aa it is
brought under cultivation tliere will
be a very appreciable difference in the
volume of tlieagricultural returns.
British Columbia to-day offers great
Tlie TranHViial llooin.
A Transvaal correspondent to a
Montana paper culls attention to several font urea of life in South Africa
that are ��� worth repenting.: "Avery
noticeable feature or this new country,"
he says, "is that nobody carries a
'gun'and there is no toughness such
us characterizes mining camps in other
lands, For upwards of six yen.'s hundreds of thousands of ounces of gold
have gone annually Irom this place by
stage iiml the coach has never been
held up or a jiennyweight of gold lost
in transit. A box containing over ICO
pounds avoirdupois of gold was drop'
pad off the couch on one occasion and
it was picked up and brought on by
another team,
"Tliere are about 300,000 souls,
black and white, in tho republic, and
its president receives 840,000 per annum, bouse rent and $1500 a year for
'coffee nionev.'
"Tliere are plenty of crocodiles in
the river. AVe see them often, and
ran onto a snake a few days ago that
would raise the bat of a man's head.
We. estimated its length at twenty-
five feet and diameter at eight inches ;
and we have not taken a drink for two
months, either, so the snake was
real."
Twenty-five hundred stamps aro now
dropping night nnd day. One man is
said to make $1.50 ore pny. Native
laborers tire said to get $7.50 per
month and it costs $5 more lo feed
them.
The country is declared to be "on
the eve of a colossal boom." It is a
peculiarity of booms that they are
always "coming." They tire based on
anticipation. Realization, or failure
to realize generally ends tliein. It is a
fact that the Transvaal has for some
time been experiencing a genuine boom,
and it is probably true that matters
soon will be, if they are not now,
down to n bread-and-butter basis. It
is likely that the gold output will be
increased, but not in the degree expected. It is too much to suy that the
Transvaal boom is over, but the
chances are favorable lhat it is near
its height, while the people of Transvaal think it has uot begun, - Mining
aud Scientific Press.
Where to Dig Tor (lolil nnd How.
Au old Cilifoinia miner, Mr. W. P.
B'.ckhurst. writes to tbe Australian
press as follows : " If I had a friend
going to start farming, my advice to
him would be, shun all poor, hungry
land as you would a pestilence. Get
into a district noted for good land, uud
you may succeed. Well, its just the
same in mining. If n party is forming
to go prospecting, tlie first best thing
to do is to secure the liest mining maps
of the colony, and then truce ou them
the auriferous bolts ou which the
richest diggings have proved to exist,
and shun those that have never proved
more than 'tucker diggings.' They
aro like poor land - will always keep n
man poor. Shun South Africa and lit
chary of West Australia. Having decided on the field you intend to try,
get well within the limits of the proved
auriferous belts, for gold-bearing
country generally runs in belts, for
miles east and west or north and
south, as the case may be, and then
prospect iu the gullies or creeks nutria! or deserted between, but in the
line ol old paying diggings. A capital
plan which we used to adopt in California, where we did not look for the
Government to do anything for us (as
I fear is too much the case here), was
to form a party of six with confidence
in each other and divide up into three
parties of two each. One couple would
go to work washing over again old
'tailings' of some rich gully, or tunneling claims, or working little paddocks that had been left untouched
between the workings of some deserted
diggings to make tucker for the six.
The other two couples would go prospecting in different directions in tho
likely or promising looking gullies iu
the neighborhood, and if either cf tlio
parties struck promising any ground
all would unite and work it, nlivaj-t
bearing this in mind, viz., that quartz
is tho matrix of gold, and when any
good alluvial gold is discovered in a
gully or creek there is pretty sure to be
a pay ledge somewhere above, and that
is the pluco to look for them, nit hough
the formation of the gold-bearing
country here is different from California. Hero there is more deep sinking
for iiHuvi-il gold.
"Never leave half-ounce diggings to
go prospecting. . Tliere is one other
point that may or inav uot hold.good
here as it did in California, but which
prospectoi-s would do well to carefully
observe and take n note of-ono of the
things our California geologists pooh-
poohed and ridiculed, viz , that on tho
ri���h gold-henring flats up on the side
of a mountain, in the gold belt, the
same class of vegetatior or a certain
kind of tree predominated, though the
diggings wero sometimes seven miles
apart. ' What has a tree on the surface to do with the gold UO or 50 feet |
below 'i" savs the geologist. It's puzzling, like many other things in gold
mining, but there was the fact, which
many old miners noted. A certain
class of strata, thrown up in the upheavals ages ago, may have favored
the growth of u certain class of tree."
The Ontario Elections.
Toronto, Dec. 4. -The results of two
bye-elections for the Ontario Legislature in the ridings of North Bruce and
East Lninliton havo proved quite a
surprise to tbe Mowat Government
which received good majorities in both
constituencies nt the general election
three years ago. East' Lambton returned Mr. McCalluin, Protestant
Protective Association candidate, by
4011 majority while North Bruce elected Mr. McNiiuglitoti, the rations of
Industry candidate by over 5511 majority.
Tho "Empire" commenting on the
result of tho Ontario bye-elections
says:
"The elections go to show what we
hnve been contending, that there is
widespread dissatisfaction with Sir
Oliver Mowm's policy. 'The Province
is saturated witli discontent with the
men and methods of the administration, and as the general election can
only be a few months off, events certainly seem to point to the downfall of
the Government iu the near future."
