I'a-cei t unil Dance.
The hospital concert on Tuesday
evening in the Alexander Hull watt
largely attended. From a financial
point of view it was a brilliant success.
The audience however were a little
disappointed with the concert company. Mrs. Verner and Stanley Adams,
were the back bone of the company
and were repeatedly encored. The'
remainder of the programme however,*
with but one exception, the Mandolin'
solo by Mr. Kent, was not appreciated
Of course with the exception of Mrs.
Verner and Mr, Adams, the otlier
artists were supposed to be amateurs,'
and they were, very much so. The'
best part of the programme was the1
dance, which was much enjoyed by
all. Refreshments were served shortly
after midnight, nfter which dancing
was resumed and kept up till 1:110.

of the concert:

One wns   an   out-iind-out   free silver

after listening quietly fer a while,
spoke up, saying, "Maybe you'i-e right

SATURDAY, NOV. 30, 1895.
There is n legend which, I nm sure,
every one having the remotest connections witb the navy has heard, I
know half a dozen or more versions of
it, varying greatly in detail.
All combine to lay the scene in the
east, sometimes in Japan, souietin.es
in China. What I believe to be the
most authentic form of the story
places it at Tien Tsin.
Twenty years ago, let us say, there
came to Tien Tsin an Englishman nud
his son. The father was a retired
army officer of somo means, and they
were travelling for pleasure. They
took a fancy to Tien Tsin and decided
to settle there for awhile.
Looking about for a house, they
were much attracted by one just outside the city, which stood near the
water's edge and command**,! a beautiful view of the harbor. Their friends,
and more especially their Chinese servants, cried out aghast. They must
not think of such. The house was
haunted. No one had lived in it for
Tlie Englishmen, however, were not
to be frighteneu off by any such silly
stories. They rente! the house and
moved in. For several month.-: all
went well. One evening the son, who
had been dining in town, came homo
quite late. As he opened the front
door he heard what seemed to be a
scuffle in his father's room. Before he
could reach the top of the stairs a
soul-piercing cry rose above the confused din.   Then all was silent.
R ishiug into his father's room the
young man found him lying on the
floor i. a pool of blood. There was uo
one else in 'be room, nor was there
any apparent way for any one to have
left it without passing him in the ball.
A knife wns sticking in the breast of
the wounded man, a wicked-looking
Malay knife, with a curiously carved
The young mnn stepped into the hull
to call the servants to his lather's
assistui.ee. When he stepped buck
into the room n moment later tbe knife
had disappeared.
The wounded .nan never rallied. He
lived several hours, but was not able
to s|��eak. His face was distorted by
en expression of unutterable terror,
���nd he died with the look etill in his
The associations of the place were
too painful (or his son to remain there
��ny longer. He packed up his belongings and returned to England.
Months passed, perhaps years; I do
not know. But after > certain lapse
of time one of our men-of-war visited
tbe harbor of Tien Tsin.
Several of the officers wero ashore
one night dining with a party of
foreign residents at the club. Some
one told the story of the haunted
house anl the murdered   Englishman,
adding that the natives said that the
murder was re-enacted every night at
the same hour.
"Let's visit the heuso some night,"
one of tbe officers suggested, "and see
tbo show."
"Why not to-night?" exclaimed a
young Dane, whom we will agree to
call A.
"We have plenty of time, and the
steward of thc club has the keys to
the house. The Englishman left them
with hiin when be went away,
Perhaps the excellant punch hnd
made ihem even braver than usual.
Anyhow, the suggestion was received
will, acclamations. Some one produced a lantern. Tho rest tilled their
pocke's with matches and caudle ends.
When they were ready to start they
looked about lor A. Hc wns nowhere
to be found, One ol our officers could
not refrain from expressing some
amusement thnt the organizer of tbe
adventure should prove tbe only one
afraid to carry it through.
"Afraid?" cried one of tho club
members. "You don't know hiin.
He doesn't know what fear means.
I'll wager he's up to some deviltry at
this moment. Probably be has gone
on ahead to put on a pillow case and
play ghost for us."
They had lo hurry to reach the
house at the intended hour.
"There it is," some ouo said, ut last,
and Lieutenant B., who curried the
lantern looked at bis watch by its
light and announced that they bad
just three minuti.es to spare. The
door wus unlocked with difficulty, for
the fastenings bad grown rusty (rom
"Bv George!" cried tbe first man
who stepped into the ball, "there's
something going on up-stnirs."
A cry of agonized despair startled
tin smiles from their lips and quickened their steps to a run. B. pushed
open the door of the room from which
the sounds had come. As he did so,
and before be could see anything the
lantern was dashed from his hand and
the door slammed behind hint.
He stood iu the darkness for a few-
awful terror-stricken seconds. Then
be took a step forward and tripped
over something on tbo floor. He
stooped over and his head encountered
a pool of warm, oozing liquid.
The instant during which his friends
in the hall were striking a light und
opening lhe door seemed au eternity.
At lust the door wus opened. The
young men crowded in with their caudles. There, at their feet luy poor A.
witb the Malay knife in his heart.
Explanations are always an anticlimax. But the explanation of the
foregoing tragedy is too curious to
omit, though its pretentions to being a
ghost story are thereby destroyed.
After this second murder the authorities were aroused to a display of tardy
activity. The bouse was carefully
nnd thoroughly searched, and the discovery made that the walls were
double, containing secret doors, stair
cases and storage chambers.
One of these secret doors accounted
for the murderer's escape, and his return to get the knife, which he evidently felt would lie n dangerous clew.
In the secret chambers were lound a
considerable supply of nrme and a
large quantity of valuables of the most
varied description.
It was evidnit that the place had
been used as a refuge and storage by
Chinese pirates. Its proximity to the
water making it the more convenient.

captured and put to death.

One of tl.t".no>: admirable ���'���[ rlbutes
that a woni.".. can possess, according
to masculine views, is pluck. You
feel that a man has a sincere admiration for one of the opposite sex when
he says with an honest wring in his
voice: "She is a plucky little womnn"
And he does all he can to encourage
her and make the burden less heavy to
carry, for if the Lord helps themselves
it is equally true that mankind follows
the high example to the letter. When
n woman i: gritty sho is thoroughly
so, and keeps up under trying difficulties, fighting off mental and bodily
ills, which, without meaning anything
detrimental to the stronger sex, we
must add parenthetically, would cause
a mnn to succumb at the outset, She
struggles along, and before the world
is bravo uud cheerful, making light of
the worries that are in reality eating
out her very soul. But when the
necessity for wearing the mask is laid
aside and she can hide away in some
little comer where naught but affection
and tenderness cm. enter. Whut is
she then? A woman through and
through, helpless, clinging without a
vestige of those go-abend qualities
that had given ber the reputation for
pluck. Woman's nature doesn't change
even though .he need of money or tht
desire for fain urges her out ntothi
hurry nnd won. ' that ���. idc i ' lifo so
different from the encircling protection
of the home circle. Lihe nifty appear
indifferent to outsiders, but she is ne;
so in reality. She may show a pair o[
bright keen eyes, that look as though
their brightness neVer could be dimmed by tears, and yet the struggle
may sometimes prove too much, and
in the seclusion of her own room all
the pent-up trouble will find vent iu
such a tit of weeping as would astonish
those who think they know her best,
bill who in reality know her so little.

A short time since the North Star
Co. commenced to drift south in shaft
No. 1 at a depth of twenty feet from
the surface. This drift ran through
its entire length Go fee', in solid galena,
but about 1(1 feet from the shaft steel
galena was on its west wall, to which
at the time no attention was paid as
thari was no resident assayer at the
mine. Last week, however, upon the
arrival of Mr. Cowell, a complete test
was made of all the different grades
of ore in the mine. No new results
were obtained from the main body of
galena, it assaying as before from 4��
to 55 ounces in silver, and 68 to 72
per cent lead. But the steel galena
discovered on the west wall of the
above mentioned drift was found to
contain 2'i5 ounces of silver and 40
per cent lead. This ore is known as
antimonial silver, and was found
along tbe west wall of the drift for
some thirty or forty feet. A cross
drift has been started about fifteen
feet from the shaft on the west wall of
the drift, and is carrying a full breast
of this rich ore in the face. We would
add as a comment to the above news
that, should there be as large a body
of this rich ore as one might expect
from the present showing. Had the
Company any doubt as to tbe advisability of erecting reduction works in
the vicinity of the mine, they will
now, surely, see their way to do so in
the near future.-Fort Steele Prospector.
Mining New*.
Fort Steele Prospector:
A thousand tons of ore are on the
dump at the St. Eugene mine. The
ore runs 50 ounces in silver and 65
per cent lead. From 10,000 to 15,000
tons of ore could and would be shipped
next summer if there was any means
of transportation.
A good trail has been made to the
Dardanelles nnd Mother Lode. The
ledge is 4 feet in width nnd can be
traced for over 2,000 feet. Numerous
assays have been made, the average
being $22 in gold. The owners intend
to work the property all winter.

There is at present in sight on the
Hamlet, (one of the Sullivan Group) a
large surface showing of steel galena
and carbonates. The ledge has been
stripped for a distance of 20 feet,
showing a solid mass of galena in

have been run in various places. At
the point where the large showing of
galena is in sight, the owners are now
sinking a shaft. It is down about 20
feet and has a good showing for a
large and solid ledge. Iu sinking they

While iu Spokane trying to head off
the Heitme outfit who have started to
build a narrow gauge railway from
Trail to the mines at Rosslaud, general superintendent Abbott of the Pacific
division of the Canadian Pacific said
that Kootonay had made Spokane a
mining center and that through mining would come much of its future
wealth. Yes; if the company in whose
employ Mr. Abbott is bad the best interests of Canada in view, a city that
would rival Spokane would be built iu
Kootenay, which is now admitted to
be one of the greatest mining countries
on earth.
