Curling-.
The boys have had ayood time at
tlie rink this Week, tiie ice being iu
first class condition. Tlie only game
of importance was between Fred Healey
���nd Capt. Armstrong, the loser to present tbe winner with an'hospitiil ticket
Fred had the pick of the town against
the Captain's usual rink. The mutch
created considerable excitement uud a
large number of spectators were present. The Captain's rink were the
favorites at the start but after one or
two ends had been played tlie onlookers hud reason to change their opinion.
Ten ends wero played. At tlie conclusion of the fourth end Fred hud a
lead of 5 which he gradually increased
and at tho eighth end tlie score stood
10 to 2. Ou tho lust two ends the
Captain added six points to his score
but it was too lute in tlio game to be
of any use to him. Tho following
wero the rinks and score:
the rink, and  instead of   hitting the
broom just lays ih front of the stone
that was shot.     It looks so easy tiiat
nobody   outside  the   sweepers would
think it was hard work, but they, of
course, aro only serving their apprenticeship.   To these unbelievers just one
word need be said : Join a curling club
and see how nice and tasy it is to got
your stone over the  " hog," especially
if tho ico is tough  or soft.     The old
hand apparently never disturbs a muscle, and that forty  pounds of granite
glides over the glacial surface us if it
knew   where   it   belonged;    hut   the
stranger picks up the same stone, and
it is as inconvenient as if it was tied
about his  neck  and he had cut a hole
for himsolf iu the ice.     The stranger
sees old men that physically he would
be more than a mutch for, pick up that
hunk of granite in a peculiar way that
makes it look as if it only weighed ten
pounds, and with a neat twist of the
wrist, see that stone change its ice and
and draw in within au inch of the tee;
and it is done so easily that strangers
will have a try at it.     The first thing
that strikes him is the fact that those
so-culled stones are a sight heavier than
thoy lookod, but not to be outdone, he
gets'himself into the wrong position,
chips out several   large pieces of  ice
with   a  corkscrew   motion   and then
wonders   when tlie mini at the other
end   mildly   murmurs     "not  strong
enough."     Not strong enough !  good
Jupiter!   ha had put every ounce of
strength in his  body in that send-oft';
but he had not put it away in the orthodox stylo and he never reached the
hog line.
Of the geniality ot curling clubs
there is no question, and there demo-
cracy i;*, undoubted. When a man
curls lie simply curls, no matter what
his other station in life may he. The
keen curler is no respector of persons
and the lord of the manor, bo to speak,
is liable to get some Severn instructions
from his skip. Curling is a grout leveller, not so much in bringing the
proud ones down as in bfinging tlie
humble ones up. Just learn to put a
stone where the skip tells you, have
the sutisfactioti of hearing him say "a
good stone sir," and you are better off
that tho man who can draw a bigger
cheque, but who can't draw through a
port and just raise the shot and lay. ���

B. C.'S MINERAL WEALTH.
INTERVIEW WITH MR. W. l-ELLEW
IIARVEV.
��� (From the London Milling Journal.)
Ii this iirticla we make a further
attempt to bring to the notice of oi r
renders and of those interested in the
mining industry the claims of British
Columbia. Our readers will remember
that during lust year we published a
couple of interviews douliug with the
same subject, mid in those it was
proved beyond dispute that this colony
possesses enormous mineral wealth;
lhat it has resources which we cannot
n'ford to despise; that it is worthy the
attention of the capitalist and scientist
und thut, if properly opened up and
developed, it may become u prominent
and most productive centre uf mining.
Hitherto it hns been tip much neglected by tins British investor and engineer
either tbrdugh ignorance of its hidden
Wealth or through un unreasonable
spirit of scepticism. We' have endeavored, as fur as in us lay, to remove
tho former, and tlie only means in our
power to dissipate the latter is ti> endeavor to confirm from varied soui'ces
of undoubted ii lit hority the information
we have already imparted through
these columns. To this end we have
interviewed a gentleiuun who knows
British Columbia thoroughly, who enn
pronounce nn authoritative judgment
upon her mining wealth, uud who is
iilde to form a guiding opinion upon
the future capabilities of the colony.
Mr. W. Pellew llnrvey was born ��t
Truro, Cornwall, *n 18!"4. Hu received
his education ut' the Urn miliar School
of thut town, but nt the age of 111 commenced to learn assaying with his
fuiher, who represents Messrs. Viviun
& Sons, of Swansea. Two years later
he went to ihe latter town in the employ of this firm, where he remained
for several years. After leaving to
nccept a position at Redruth. In the
year 1890 he went to Golden in British
Columbia, where he started a business
of his own ns ussayor and chemist,
niter first serving in this capacity to
the Golden Mining & Smelting Company. Fortunately, he was very successful in business, nnd in 1892 was
selected by tlie Provincial Government
to muke tests on tho ores sent by them
to the World's Fair nt Chicago. He
was throe years editor ol tho GOLDBN
Era, a milling newspaper published at
Golden.
He is now in England on a pleasure
trip, and, ��� the request of Mr. Beeton,
tli.i Agent-General of British Columbia
h-.s consented to exhibit tho numerous
mineral specimens he has brought over
with hiin, in order to show the varied
r.-sources of the colony. We have bad
the pleasure of inspecting these, and
found them extremely interesting.
\ljmjr of the silver ores contain hundreds of ounces to tho ton, whilst
th-) copper ores vary from 10 to 70 per
cent.   The ctold ores on viow are chief-
Ouu very Iin
', ind contain from 14
wues per ton c>r 2000 lbs.
specimen, whioh, by the
wny, belongs to the Government, nnd
came from the creek known as Williams, in Cariboo, is nearly pure,
; weighing 12 ounces 6 dwts. 12 grains.
The first query we put to Mr. Harvey
was as to the period over which his
acquaintance with British Columbia
extended.
"I have been in British Columbia
nearly four years," he replied, '"and
have made acquaintance with its mineral resources through my profession
us an assayer and chemist."
'��� I presume thut gold is the chief
metal of the country ?"
"Yos."
" What are the principal gold fields?'
" Well, Cariboo, Lilloet, Wild Horse
and   McMurdo.     These   are  on  the
mainland.     There is also Alberni, on
Vancouver Island."
"Which of these is the principal?"
"Catiboo.     For over 30 years vast
quantities of gold have lieen taken from
the several creeks in this section of the
cult itry,   the   most    notable    being
Williams and Lightning Creeks.     Iu
the first named, notwithstanding the
period   over   which   operations   have
been conducted, ut the present moment
the owners of   hydraulic   claims are
making fiOc. per cubic yard of gravel."
"Which of them pays the best?"
" Ah ! that is a difficult question to
answer.     Wild   Horse Creek   has in
former years paid remarkably well, but
at the present moment the accounts of
companies not being at my disposal, I
should suy that Cariboo Goldfields are
more profitable to  their owners than
those of other districts."
What is tho general cost of treatment ?"
About 12 cents per yard. In this
I include general working and oilice
expenses."
'���Are you well off for water, timber,
labour, ifcc?"
"British   Column-it*,  is remarkably
well off in this respect.     I do not le- i
lieve  that uuy other country  iu the
world is superior."
"Are-yon well supplied with capi-
tul, or could you do with more?"
" Now you come to business. Out
t.totible, and only one too, is this very
question concerning capital; most of
the niitns are being worked by miners
of moderate means. As soon as any
difficulty arises and cxtru machinery is
wanted, their pockets cannot run to
the necessity of the case, and there the
mutter ends; whereas If capital were
available, no delay would occur, and
the impetus given through the working of one big mine ou a scale worthy
of its products would help along other
smaller ventures*"
"Who are the principal owners of
the mines, English or Aniericniis ?"
" Of gold, Englishmen ; of silver lead
Americans."
"Have you plenty of modern machinery ?"
"Of late we have improved in this
respict, but my reply to the question
of ' capital' holds good here."
" Is the ore refractory or free milling?"
" In ores at surface we find free
milling material, but as development
proceeds they become refractory."
" What are Hie lutest discoveries in
res|iect to gold ?"
"The Alberni gold Holds on Vancouver Island."
���'What is your opinion of the future
of the gold mining industry?"
" I have tho highest opinion of the
future of gold mining in the colony,
nnd as soon as Englishmen venture
there and employ competent engineers
and take moderate precautions as regards investments they will think as
much of the province und its mining
prospects as they now do of South
Africa and Australia."
I suppose the mining is chiefly
quarts mining?"
"Gold mining iechiefly alluvial, but
in time this will change."
"Havo you any tailings, and have
you found a method of treating them
successfully ?"
"Yes, we have, and I lielieve that:
for  refractory   leavings  the cyanide:
process should he introduced."
(To be continued.)
MIRIAM'S MISTAKE.
Tlui bathers on the beacb had clasped
bunds to breast an lurolling wave; the bund
was playing ou the breezy porches of tlie
! hotel; grand equipages whirled over the
glittering sands- a ship in full sail was visible In tbe channel: the sun was nuking
Into the water Hue nf the horizon.

husky, his manner agitated, "I have the
right to ask your reason for this rejection."

wetness that she did not car* I* have her

"No, you have lot," she replied, the
color coming and going in her face. "Still
I'll tell you.   I am prompted by revenge.'
"Uy revenge?"
"Yes," was her measured reply. "I want
you to suffer."
"And you enjoy Itf Then yon know how

I consider myself the soul of honor."
"Uli. yon do?" aud she laughed mockingly. " Instead, you are a man without principle."
He groaned aloud tn his powerful effort
to repress his angry Indignation.
"I am not ii venging myself, hut another,"
she suld. Kpeakiug with rapidity. "Did
yuu ever know Diamine Carroll? Oh, It is
not necessary fur me to remind yuu of
your 'histiiess."
When Miriam Gray reached her room at
the hotel, reliction set in, and ber great
grief showed limv devotedly she loved the
iiinil whiiiu she Insulted. She flung herself upon the bed uud uried a* if her heart
were luiikeu.
"Oh, Blanche!" she i-rc'slmed aloud between her hysterical sous, "you urcuveiigeil,
but yuu will never know what it has cunt
me. Oh. why was I io love ititii so passion

l'.iirly though it was, she retired to bed,

A NORWEGIAN BEIC-.
It was durlntc tfaeempfre, when Napoleon
was knocking the kings right and left. The
r'uglislimi'ii had blockaded all our ports,
and privateering was almost Impossible,
fur a cm ine was pretty sure to come to nu
end iu the Plymouth prison. So nearly all
the French ships lay smiuin;: themselves
at their moorings, like so many rotten old
liulks. lint Blew gallantfelluwn were still
cruising ou the high seas and giving the
Englishmen an occasional shot by way of
revenge aud in order to keep iu practice.
One of these, Captain Kerkuf. n true Breton, hard featured and swarthy. In spite of
tlie Englishmen was roaming the North
sea in his pretty schooner, the SiuisQuar-
tier, with his eye on the windnnd his Isfnds
in his own pockets, in default of litters.
It was u day of dense log, and tbe horizon
was shadowy, but suddenly the nipt,in
saw the ghostly form uf f brig clea viii-i the
fog mid siuudlugou a course nearly parallel
to his own.
jVt the same moment the lookout cried:
"Sail ou the starboard quarter!"
"What fool of a skipperdares come within gunshot of the liuUM Qtiortier?" roared
Kerxof. "If he's au Englishman, we'll give
him a trip lo France (or the good of his
health. Come, my lads, clear the decks)
Crowd all iwi) and scud tbe stranger onr
'������I nl, lor we privateers must, bepoiite, aoovo
all else."
The next Instant a ball from one of tho
schooner's guns plunged through the fog
and pierced tho rigging of the mysterious
brig.
There wdb a moment of mii-prase.bnt tbo

riui'-e of her (ormiuubie adversary's guns.
She kept on her course, however, and ss
she grew more distinct au expression of
v. under overspread the faces of Kerkuf aud
his crew.
"What kind of a ablp it that"" said the
captain.
"Did you ever see such a rig, my lads?
Sho doesn't carry sail enough to cross a
inillptiud In a week, you'd say, but there
she goes, making a good 13 knots before
our eyesl I'll be banged if I can understand it."
Tbe crew answered only try nods and
oaths and the like symptoms of surpriw
aud terror.
Uut tlie preparations for attack went on.
and the gunners stood at their posts with
lighted ma. ihe*.
"Attention!" suddenly cried Kerkof,
springing Into tbe nettings, "Ship or
shadow, we'll send a volley into ber. Now
we're In Hue.   Heady, my men?  Firel"
A terrible defoliation shook every Umber
nf the Sans Quurtier.
When the smoke cleared away, the men
giucd In antiu-ement at the spot where the
brig hail been.   She hnd vanished.     --
"Sunk!" cried a dozen voices,
"Silence, fuolsl" mured Kerkof.   ' "���*.
With an air uf htupcfitctloii, hu -Tanned
tbe sen in nil dii-ectluiis. All eyes followed
bis, and soon there rose a chorus uf oaths,
for thu brig, dimly seen through tbe fog,
was scudding iiwuy far to larboard aud
wttb all nulls furled.
"Fire again!" cried Kerkof ia a hoarse,
unnatural voice.
The second broadside waa given with less
precision than the first, for the strange
sight hud lured some of tbe gunners from
their posts.
I be brig was too far away to be affected
by the ragged volley and was soon lost to
sight in tbe fug.
Kerkuf, leaning ngnlnst the nettings, waa
still staring in uiiiuueuientut the spot where
she and vanished when the boatswain's
voiie roused him from bis stupor.
"captain."
"Well?"
"Captain, did you see that brlgr"
"Of course I did, yon idiot!"
"Well, captain, may the devil fly away
with me if she isn't the vory one we sunk
In tbe cha nnol a year ago this blessed day."
"What:"
"Yea, captain, a year ago today. It was
Good Friday, you kuow. Perhaps the
crew were uot prepared for death, and they
have come back to ask our prayers tor the
repose of their souls."
"You are au Infernal foot!"
"Well, maybe I am, captain.'' The old
sailor retired slowly shaking hia head, and
Kerkof resumed his ruvery.
The sun went down, and the privateer
kept on her course with a favoring wind.
Suddenly tbe men, who had been discussing the strange oeeurrence,set up a
great shout.
Kerkof raised his bead and recoiled in astonishment.
Close on the port bow stood the strange
b]-jg.#ith all sails furled, but keeping even
pace with the schooner. Atorrentofsmoke
and flame poured from a great black cylinder amidships.
"Tbe brig!" gasped a voice near Kerkot
"Brig or devil, to your guns and firel"
The terrible brig seemed to have heard
this hoarse and broken command, for she
bounded forward, crossed tbe schooner's
bows and soon disappeared to starboard.
She passed so close to the Sans Quartler
that the roaring of the flames was henrd,
mid through the portholes wasseen a fiercely lilu/.iug f'uv, with fantastic human figures moving about in its ruddy light.
Not a word was spoken aboard the
Frenchman. The crew fell on their knees.
For full 10 minutes Kerkof knelt, with
head bared and bis rosary in his bands.
Several days later tbe Saus Quartler
mnilo llreton port. Kerkof and his crew
never knew what bad frightened them so
badly, but about this time the English
newspaper* amionuci'd the arrival at London of a steam bout bulling from Norway.
This was the first vessel propelled by
steam that had traversed those waters.���

Not a Subject For Prayer.
A worthy mau, who was very seustlve and
retiring, bavin,- lost his wife, privately requested that, he might bo remembered in
the minister'* morning prayer from the
pulpit, but asked that his name might not
be mentioned. On Sunday morning the
good minister prayed most eloquently for
"our nged brother upon whom the heavy
hand of sore alillctioii has so lately fill leu."
At this point an elderly man, whom the
minister hud married to a very young wife
during the weeu, rose with a bounce and
stamped down the nisle, muttering loud
Chum-h to be henrd half uver the elm pel:

Bimetuliain in England is gaining converts. It is understood that Lidder-
dale. en-governor of the Bank of England, is a strong advocate of tin international agreement torn joint standard,
Bimeitilisin is no longer tho creed of a
handful of cranks. Nearly every
economist of eminence is on its side.
The international conference must be
re-opened. France, Germany and the
Uliiti.d States are anxious that this be
done. Surely our interests are as great
as theirs. If in our pride an the gold

punishment will full on our own

Odd pieces of table nnd toilet silver nre
appreciated, such as hot water jugs, silver
bread platters, inufUueers, toast rucks and
egg bolleis.

ice or Dowers are shown this season. They
have waving shell-like ridges with richly
wrought brokeu edges.
