Prospectors still continuo to flock
towards Canyon creek. Last week
Messrs. R. Milligan, T. Mercier. and
J. Lake went out, but owing to Milligan meeting with an accident, a rock
falling on bis foot and severely crushing it, the party had to return. Lake
and Mercier had quite a time getting
Milligan down, having to carry him
all the way. Tho liiifortuuiito victim
of the accident is now in the hospital
under the care of Dr, Taylor, and is
doing well. Lake and Mercier lost no
time in returning to the creek, this
time accompanied by Dan Milligan.
Several parties have sinco followed
and the creek will no doubt be thoroughly prospected.
In two weeks more the Fifth Annual

invited to take part, a silver modal
being given for the highest individual
score. The sports will extend over
two days, a pleasing feature this year
being the aquatic sports to be held on
Vacboii's slough. On the evening of
tlio lirst day an excursion will be held
up tbo river on the S.S. Duchess,
which will no doubt add greatly to the
enjoyment of the visitors, a goodly
number of whom are expected from the
Upper Country and the towns along
the line.
Mr. W. R. Coggesball of Toronto,
an enthusiastic representative of the
Canadian Entertainment Bureau, spent
Wednesday in town and made arrange'
inents for the appearance here of the
Misses Webling of London, Eng.
on Wednesday evening July 31st.
This bureau has under its management over fifty of the leading Canadian attractions and has been the
means of placing over a thousand on
tortninnients in Ontario this past sea
son, and intends rouring two or more
attractions to tbe Pacific const every
summer which will no doubt be
appreciated by tlio people along the
Hue. Mr. Coggesball assures us that
we may expect a rare treat in the
appearance  of  the  Misses Webling.
In regard to quartz mining the report says : "In East Kootenay, as
in most otlier localities, great discouragement has been felt by those interested in silver properties, owing to the
depressed stato and uncertain future-
value of that metal. A consequent
inactivity in development has been the*
rule with respect to properties which
do not hold forth prospects of producing gold. The attention uf prospectors
lias been given to gold quart*!, especially in tbe Fort Steele Division of the
Hu wns Ptinl.lied.
One of the conductors who visited
Vancouver' recently told a World reporter a good story of how a "railroad
hog " was punished. He had piled the
seat next to him in a car seat with his
bundles, and when (I gentleman asked
if anyone was to occupy it he replied
that the bundles belonged to a gentleman who was temporarily in the
smoking car. "All right," said the
gentleman, "I will sit in the seat un-'
til lie comes," and he proceeded to
remove the bundles. Pretty soon the'
owner of the bundles arrived at his
destination and began to gather up bis
effects, but the gentleman at once put
a veto on this, with the remark:
'��� You can't take those bundles ; you
yourself said they belonged to a man
wbo was temporarily in the smoking
car." The fellow was mad and abusive
but the gentleman was inexorable.-
Filially the conductor was called in
who delivered his dictum as follows :-
"If the bundles are not claimed by
anyone on tho train, then, by coming-
around to-morrow to the depot and
identifying them satisfactorily, we
will give them to yo.i." The mttti'sr
face was as red its fire with rage, and
shook liko gelatine, but he could do-
nothing. So, timid tbe laughter of the
passengers, he rushed to the door to
juinp off just as the train was passing
out of the station. And he meekly
came around to the depot for his bundles the next day, but swore revenge
upon the man who played such a
practical joke upon him.

SVTURDAY, JUNK 15, 1896.
There is no use in  advising people
not to speculate;  they  will speculate.
And there are points at whicli it is impossible to draw the line between "legitimate  business"   and   speculation.
All business has some of the elements
of speculation in it ���which is the same
as saving that  life is uncertain.     At
intervals of   a few years   tliere   como
periods whon the chances in the slock
markets  favor   the   nonprofessional,
when there is  such an impulse on the
part of   the   public  that prices move
upward   rapidly   and   without- much
reference to  the  immediate conditions
of industry and   merchandising.     At
such times tbe professional is wont to
say   " it  is the fools that are making
money,"   thnt   is, people who do not
know  much   about   the business win
profits, while many of  th* old heads
get out of the market.     The  country
has recently entered upon one of these
periods.     Thc man who buys blindly
makes money, and tho man wbo stops
to reason   that  the properties are not
earning enough to justify a rapid rise,
anil   consequently   sells   short, loses.
But earnings are uot the only things
that   niiike   prices.     Tbo   temporary
fancy of the public  bus everything to
do   wilh   quotations, and   when   the
crowd has the buying craze woe to the
man who gets  in tho way.     To anybody who is   bound   to speculate, the
only   sound   advico   now   is that he
shall buy  before  lie sells.     That the
market will have reactions from time
to timo goes  without   saying, but the
ordinary operator is not quick enough
or skillful enough  to avail himself of
such   incidents.     His   guiding   star
should be the (act that the business of
the country is improving and thnt the
most  potent  forces now in operation
make toward greater values for stocks.
There aro now lietter opportunities for
a discerning   trader   to make  money
than   have   existed   in   this   country
since   the  active  period   immediately
following tbe resumption of speci payments.    Of course, those opportunities
ure   not   confined   to   tho exchanges.
Almost   any   quick-witted   man,   by
looking   over  these fields  cf industry
nml trade with   which   be   is most familiar, will si re places  where his capl-
tnl and intelligence cun he employed to
greater   advantage.     The   next three

Mr. 11. C. Stoildart, ol Clinton, who
wus defeated by a majority of one in

upon his success on Saturday, June

The supper had been clenrod away
and the hired girl was washing the
dishes in tbe kitchen and singing at her
work. The twins, snugly tucked in
their little cradles, were smiling in their
sleep. Mr. Toodles was quietly rending
his paper by the sitting-room table.
The light shone softly on bis meek and
benevolent face and illuuiin-ted the full
moon on the top of his small but sensible head. Mrs. Toodles was knitting in
he? favorite rocking chair by the cheerful grate fire.
But something was on Mrs. Toodles'
mind. She allowed the kitten to play
witb tho bail of yarn dropped from her
capacious lap without once stamping
her substantial feet and crying "scat."
Finally she laid her long, glistening
knitting needles down and aimed her
penetrating spectacles straight nt her
diminutive husband who, without seeing it, felt the influence of the steady
glare and moved uneasily in consequence.
"Mr. Toodles 1" at last she began, "I
am going to take boarders and make
"Are you, my dearl" he answered,
looking sweetly at her strong and
rather masculine features, "where aro
you going to take them?"
"Right here in this house and right
awuy," she said, decidedly. "Mrs,
Brown does, nud she's bought herself ;
already a sealskin sock, a new piano and
lots of lovely furniture out of the pro*'
fits. You always say you can't afford
those things, but 1 know better. Now j
I've made my mind up to eurn them '.
myself, anil don't you dare oppose it. |
This house will be a palace before I'm .
through." I
<- "How many boarders will tho twins
leave yon time to work for, my dear,"
lie gently usked, without surprise or
losing the place he was reading, "and
what rooms can you give them?"
"I'll get two to start with and give
them your room and put you in the
attic on a cot. You like the air up
there, you say, and think the view is
charming, and as for the twins, Mr.
Toodles, you'll be delighted to hold
them when I'm busy, of course.
"And it won't cost a cent extra for
the table, either. What feeds four will
feed more when I do tho buying and
serving. Oht It takes.a:woninn to man-
ago thoso things. And then you'll hnve
company to talk with at home, bo you
won't hnve to visit the 'club'���as you
call it."
"Will your boarders smoke pipes, my
dear, or cigarottes in our sitting room
evenings'! You can hardly bear a good
cigar now, you know, aud then the
odor permeating the house might osBify
the twins and lend them to love cigarettes, too."
"My boarders will not smoke if I
don't like it���any more than you, Mr.
Toodles." snapped the good lady.
"But you can't prevent them smoking
in their room, my dear, and that is next
to yours���and the twins."
Mrs. Toodles mode no reply for
awhile, but her woman's mind was
shaken a bit
"Tbey can sinoko with their heads out
of a window. Maybe they won't use
the vile weed at all. Every man isn't a
chimney, puffing as if a ton of soft coal
was burning inside ot hint," she vehemently replied.
"No, indeed, my dear," blandly answered the husband, who loved a cigar
next to his wife, "bnt who'll let the
boarders in at night if they are ont past
our bedtimet You know yon wouldn't
want to trust strangers with a latch key
to our home."  .
"Woll, Mr. Toodles, if you ain't man
enough to sit up for them I'll let them
iu myself, sir."
"Suppose, my dear," spoke the mild-
tempered man, "they should come home
slightly hilarious from liquor and tried
to kiss yon."
Mrs. T.'s spectacles blazed furiously
at the unmoved nnd apparently sincere
countenance of her little lord and master.
Then with an impressive sweep of her
ponderous right hand she exclaimed:
"Mr. Toodles, whnt do you mean? I
think I can take entire care of myself
under those circumstances as you. sir,
know by experience. Hal I'd like to
see a man attempt nonsense with me.
You ain't jealous already, I hope."
"O, certainly not, my dear," smile.
Mr. T., "I'm only too proud when your
charms uro admired by tbe sterner sex.
The fact is, my darling, I liko yonr plan
so much that I'll get u boarder for you
Tbo angry cloivl on Miv. Toodles'face
changed to the brightest sunshine.
"Spoken liko a true, good, loving husband yon are," sho shouted In her tenderest tones, "und now, dear Timothy,

The next morning Mr. Toodles called
on a large, reliable friend.
1     "Jock I" be said, when they were alone,
' "I want  yon  to  fill your trunk with
bricks and come with it to my house
and play boarder for a week.   Mrs.  T.
has got boarders on the brain, yon know,
and I want yon to euro her.   If your appetite is us good as it used tn be you'll

I    Mrs, Toodles,  gayly arrayed for the
I grand occasion, welcomed him wiih her
I most captivating smiles, and Mr. Tood-
I les solemnly escorted bim to the dining
1 room.
The table was a sight to see, for the
unsuspecting amateur landlady had excel! d herself in heaping it with goodies.
She knew, or thought she did, the importance ol making a favorable iiunres
sion at tbe start, although, we're obliged to say, bIio intended t,r soon run on

Mr. Toodles. looking as meek and innocent as a new bom babe, did his honors from his end of tho table, and Mrs.
Toodles. beaming witb delight and

For a timo all went on swimmingly,
but Boon even the twins in high chairs
opposite Mr. Jack evinced surprise nt
tbe rapid disappearance of tho food, and
a pardonable fear lest they should starve
in the midst of such a plenty.
Mrs. Toodles, In spite of ber acknowledged fame as a hostess, showed signs
of uneasiness, and soon became positively nervous nt each fresh assault the
new boarder made on the vlvandB, whilo
her husband, pretending not tc see her
warning glances, kept on urging Mr.
Eosyuiun to eat.
At lust whon the staring twins themselves were in dnnger of being swallowed by the insatiable boarder to top off
with, and when poor Mrs. Toodles
threatened to collapse entirely Mr. Easy-
man pronounced himself satisfied���until

do to frighten the gay and apparently
contentod now boarder away by too
suddenly disturbing his home comfort
after dinner.
But when tho pair of rascals began a
heated political argument each, of
course, taking opposite sides, she commenced to seo that keeping boarders
wasn't ns nice ns her friend, Mrs. Brown,
had cracked it up to be.
By and bv, however, Mr. Easyman
grew more entertaining, but whether
the harrowing tales ho invented of
boarding house experiences served to
make his now landlady more cheerful
wasa question.
At lost, to the poor victim's relief,
came bedtime, and Mr. Jack, after a
hearty goodnight, and a carefully stolen
wink at tho meek-faced husband, retired
to his room.
Then Mrs. Toodles, doing considerable
thinking, lot the smoke out the windows,
gazed at tbe disorder and damage done,
and sadder if not wiser, sought the bo-
lace of sleep.
Hardly had she pressed the pillow with
her aching head when, "toot! tootl

frum tho new boarder's cornet in tho

As a fearfnl accompaniment to tht;

Biive tbe twins. Those he luul to walk,
one on each arm, for a. long, cold hour,
but be bore the punishment so well deserved without his usual groans.
So it went on till the end of tho boarder's first week arrived.
Then Mrs. Toodles, weighing less nntl
looking pile nnd distressed, begged the
husband to tell Mr. Easyman that Mrs.
T. wished to rive np takiug boiu-ders

Mrs. Torallei fainted on tbe spot.
