Montreal Gazette: The name of
Dun Mann has for years been connected with great railway enterprises in
different parts of Canada, and now
that gentleman has turned his attention towards thc mining districts of
British Columbia. Mr. Mann who
has been in the mountains of Canada's
rich Pacific Province since July last,
returned to Montreal on Saturday
evening, and was soon after interviewed by a Gazette reporter at the
Windsor. He would rather talk about
tho big finds of his neighbors, and the
untold wealth bidden away iu those
Kootenay hills, than dwell upon his
own particular operations, but, after
considerable importuning on the part
of the reporter, Mr. Mann suid be had
purchased the Carnation mine, near
Fort Steelo, in the East Kootenay, in
October, 1892, for S300, and, after
operating it this summer be would not
take, to-day, $50,000 for his bargain.
The vein is visible in places ut a
width of G5 feet, and shipping ore is
found to the extent of 24 feet. 90 per
cent of which can bo sent to the smelter. Mr. Mann calls this a little mine
adding that work can be carried on
all the year round, and, wi.b 50 men
and 20 teams employed, he expects,
next year, to ship 9.000 tons of ore,
valued at close on to 870 pe.i ton.
������What are the component parts of
this ore?" the reporter asked.
'���About G7 per cent, of lead and 45
ozs. of silver."
Mr. Munn explained that tbe shipment of the ore from tli a particular
locality took place in summer, and
that it could be sent to oil Iier Everett,
Tucomii, lireat Fulls, oi ,,tier smelters
on the American side ol the line.

Okauagau Landing, B.C., Nov. 12.
���What is possiblv the largest mining
deal in the history of British Columbia
has just been completed at Boundary-
Creek to a syndicate of capitalists,
principally New Yorkers. The .transfer of ownersl.il) includes uo less than
13 claims, including amongst others
the famous copper mine at Copper
Camp. Arrangements have also been
completed for the erection of a large
smelter in the Boundary Creek country
by American capitalists. The smelter
will be an immense concern and modern
iu every respect. Considering the recent deals and the present showing
from explorations being made, first-
class men, representing heavy Eastern
capitalists, are becoming interested in
Boundary Creek mining propositisus
in great numbers, md many deals are
daily being made, principally .through
8. S. Fowler, a well-known mining
engineer of Chicago, whoso attention
was first attracted to British Columbia's mineral deposits through the exhibit made at the World's Fuir in
lSUil, and through correspondence
with W. T. Thompson, of Fairview.
There will undoubtedly be a big rusb
to Boundary Creek mines in the spring;

SATURDAY, NOV.   lfi, Iff5.
A cold, bleak November day; a prairie trail; a horseman in uniform riding
at a gallop.
A turn iu the road ; a busbwncker
hidden in the bushes; a shot, and a fall
from the saudle.
It was Little Jim, our third sergeant
riding across the country to carry a
We called him littlo Jim because he
was small of stature and because
everybody liked" him. He was only a
boy, and one look into bis frank face
and big blue eyts made you his friend.
The bushwacker peered over the log
and saw his victim lying on the stony
road and the horse galloping away in
affright, and a smile of satisfaction
came to his face us he rose up and
hurried through the woods. War is
not always wur. Sometimes it is
assassination ���murder.
Twenty rods beyond tbe body lying
in the road is a humble cabin, tenanted
only by a woman and two children.
War has forced the husband and father into the ranks. At sound ol the
shot and the clatter of hoofs they rise
up from their frugal noonday meal and
run down to the gate. A dead man is
by no means a rare sight to mother
and children. Scores of dead have
been left on that highway in the last
few weeks, and at times tbe cabin hns
been full of wouudel men who groaned
- and cursed.
'���It's a Bluetiose who's been bushwhacked," whispers the mother as she
leads the way down the roud, aud
presently, the trio are looking down
upon the lifeless form of our Little
Jim. No, not lifeless. Thc bullet
struck him in the side and indicted a
severe wound, but even while they
gaze at hiin he-opens bis blue eyes aud
tries to realize his situation.
"Looks jest like Uncle Dan,'' whispers one of the children.
'���Let's be good to bin.." plouds thc
She would. Assisted a bit by the
children, she got him to tlie house and
had captured a prisoner and n patient
at tbe same ti.ne. Her husband anil
her neighbors had conic homo with
gunshot wounds, and she had helped
to nurse thorn mid send them buck to
fight for the cmise she believed was
right. Aside from a surgeon our
Little Jim could not have fallen into
better hands. Sho probed for ti.e bullet and found it, and if living to-day
lie wenrs it on his watch chain The
eastern volunteers had been holding
that road for weeks, and all that afternoon and evening tho woman listened
lor the clatter of hoofs that she might
report what had occurred and hare
her patient taken away. Not a horseman passed.
There were days and nights when
Little Jim wns out of his head and
raving of home and mother. There
were days and nights when his life
hung on a thread. He bad the care
his own mother would have given him
Many and many a time he called her
hie mother, and  blessed  her that she
crisis passed, and ihe soldier knew
where be was and the situation outside. He know more than the good
woman would have him. That little
family was being put to sore straits to
find bim such lood as an invalid must
42.0(1 per nullum IN have, and ho heard the children cry
out at night because they had not
enough cohering to keep tbem warm.
After a few days, when bo found there
was no chance to get word to the loyal
line, be begged of the woman to deliver hiin up to the rebel authorities
and r'-lieve herself of the burden. Sho
indignantly refused, and the children,
who had insisted on calling bim Uncle
Daniel, cried at the thought of his
going away.
Pretty soon a new peril threatened
The neutral territory was given up to
hushwackei'8 and Indians. One day a
long haired, evil looking man, whose
garb was that ot a farmer, and who
was probably the would-be assassin of
Little Jim, was seen lurking about the
premises. The woman put another
pillow behind the soldier, handed him
his revolver and quietly said :
'���I have your carbine aud shall try
to kill him if he persists in entering
tbe house. If I am killed then you
must tukc care of yourself.''
The sergeant could hear every word
of the conversation as the man finally
advanced to the house, and the woman
advanced to meet bim.
'���Look yere, woman," he began,
"who yo' got in yo'r house?"
������By what right do you ask that?"
she demanded in turn.
"By the right everybody has to kill
a cussed Canuck wherever he kin find
hiin. Stand aside and let me sec what
sort of a fowl yo've had cooped in yere
for two or three weeks."
Click ! Click ! sounded the hammer
of her curbiue, and as she brought the
muzzle on a line with the man's heart
she said:
"There's the road ! Yo' scatter! I'll
���omit 20, and then I'll shoot!"
He backed away, muttering and
cursing, and for tlie next three days
the cabin wus iu a state of siege. He
hung about, determined to investigate
the reports which had somehow leaked
out, but finding tbe woman on her
guard he finally went away to report
to tbe rebel authorities. Thanksgiving day cume- cold, bleak and u tiut-
ler of snowiliikes in the air. Little
Jim had been shot just threo weeks
before, but sue), wus the nursing tbat
on this day he was helped out of bed
and bolstered up in the big rocking
chair to eat Thanksgiving dinner.
Tears came to his eyes as he saw what
"How far uwuy?*'
"About a mile."
"That lets us out. Twelve of us
can't fight no thousand volunteers,
Goodby, .Mary; goodby, children! Say,
Canuck. I'm dog-gone glad of it! Orders is orders, but I'd a-gone back to
cainp and told 'em it wasn't in me to
bust up a dying man's Thanksgiving,
no matter whether he was a rebel or a
Five minutes later the highway was
full of volunteer cavalry, and half n
dozen officers were in the house. This
timo it was Littlo Jim wbo told the
story, and when be bad finished bvqi-j
one put out his bund to I'm.' woman
and suid "God bless you." Tbey took
the sergeant away in an ambulance,
but on tbe plate on which he bad
eaten his Thanksgiving dinner they
left a due reward,and many u soldier's
haversack wus emptied that want
might be put ufar off. After tho war,
Little Jim rode over tbat highway
again to find the cabin iu ashes, but
the soldier and bis family alive and
well. His money built a new and
better house, fenced in the fields again
bought horses and plows and seoJ and
started tbe ox-rebel on ibe road to
prosperity. Well, the sergeant feels
that he cau never repay the debt, and
the family* think there was never such
another enemy in the world, and so,
take it all around, it cume out as good
as the ending of any story, und hasn't
been concluded yet.

Sun Francisco, Nov. 9.���Theodore
Durrant has written a sketch of his
life and ambitions, and tells of how it

takes the churches to task fur what he
thinks is their lack of Christianity,
and says tbat bis coolness during his

given him by his mother. He stoutly

She dunces a Spanish tiing and sings
in a sweet but light soprano voice iu

to speak also. Her mail, occupation
in tbe opera is to stand around iu picturesque costumes and striking poses
and look pretty, in all of which sho is
eminently successful.
This young lady is Miss Alice Hoi*
brook. More than that, she is the
sister-in-law of one of the richest men
in tho world, "theKingof the Kaffirs,"
Barney Barnato.
She is probably paid about twenty
or twenty-five dollars a week. Her
biother-iu-law is estimated to be worth
��200,000,000 or something like that,
and Miss Holbrook and her sister and
Barney are on the best of terms. He
;)iiid for her education in London, and
Mrs, Barnato writes to her constantly.
When called on, Miss Holbrook wus
resting in preparation for her evening
per I'm malice.
"Yes, it is true," she said, "Barney
Barnato is iny sister's husband. I
have known him very well indeed lor
ten years. He lias been very kind to
me. Ho paid for my education and
gives nie every encouragement to keep
striving for success as an actress.
"Of course I could tell you a great
many things about Barney that I
don't feel at liberty to speak about.
He is entirely a self-made man. He
began from absolutely nothing, way
down at the very bottom of the social
scale. Why, do you know that even
after he began to get rich I had to
write his letters for him? He couldn't
spell the words, you know. But in
the last two or tlirct, years he has improved wonderfully, and now you
would hardly suspect that l.e had not
been properly educated.
���'Is It true that he started in South
Africa in a very small way with a
"Well, no, it wasn't exactly n circus," said Miss Holbrook, and then sho
changed the conversation with remarkable rapidity. She did not explain
that it was a trick donkey that the
"Kaffir King" was exhibiting iu South
Africa when he ran across the chance
to transfer diamonds to England and
<o get au opening in the financial
world. She preferred to talk of bis
history only since he began to make
'And is Barnato your brothcr-in-
law'.j real name?"
���'No, it's not. and there is no secret
about that. His real name is Bernard
Issues. Some of bis intimate friends;
still call him Isaacs. Barnato is only
a stage name. He is an English Jew
and one of the best fellows as a comrade you ever met. In Johannesburg
they look up to bim as a king. Whenever he goes there the inhabitants give
hiin a grand reception. He is met
with a band and n procession, and
they take the horses out of the carriage
and drag it themselves."
"One of Barney's queer habits is to
lie lor hours and look at nothing. All
the time, I suppose, he is keeping up a
wonderful thinking. He has a great
bruin.    It's a marvel."
"One thing the public don't know
about Barney is bis ability as an
actor. He is really a very good one.
I have seen him play Macbias in "The
Bells,' and play it very well. If it
wasn't for his luck, I'd think, myself,
that he wus a better actor'than a
Miss Holbrook showed some beautifully colored pictures of the Barnato
family which she bad just received.
Her sister Fannie was the eldest of the
family. She is a very handso.no

chemical energy of nut u�� is so great
that die metals burn with a vivid
light and emit a dense white smoke.
The permanency of those rusts and
their protective character are utilized
in white points.
Professor Skidmore then directed
attention to a third group of metals,
which includes tlnse which have dark
or colored rusts, as with copper, iron
und silvin. A series of experiments
followed to show how these rusts were
formed, ami the changes, which iron
undergoes In appearance in the tem-
pering process were carefully noted.
Attention was directed, finally, to the
fourth group of metals, which never
rust. These arc gold unil platinum,
and it was noted that tbey are also the
metals whicli are found as metals in
tbe earth, and not as ores from whicli
the metal must bo manufactured, In
the case of the other metals it is an
advantage that tbey are found in the
rust or ore condition, ns they can be
mnnufi.cti.red much more easily than
they could be cut from ledges of tho

Metals an.l Minerals.
Professor Skidmore of Philadelphia,
in a course of laboratory lessons to
supervising principals and teachers of
the Philadelphia public schools, took
up the subject of metals recently. In
the course of his lecture he made some
interesting remarks in regard to the
distinction between minerals and met-
uls. It is not possible, he observed, lo
deliue exactly what a metal is. yet
there is little liability of mistake .11
distinguishing ti metal from 11 non-
metal. The metallic properties of luster, toughness, fusibility, opaqueness,
conductivity and rust may he possessed
separatel) by iiouiuetiils, but they are
not associated lis ihey are with metals
Most metal*: may bo bent, twisted,
drawn and hninniered to uu extent far
beyond what any mineral uot 11 .notul
could endure.
Taking up the matter of the rusts of
different metals, ho showed by 11 series
of interesting experiments that s.din.i',
potassium, lithium and, iu 11 lesser degree, calcium, strontium nnd barium
rust instantly wlien exi osed to moist
air, their white rusts quickly dissolving in water and forming alkalies.
Other experiments demonstrated the
fad tli.it another group of metals, in
which are zinc, lead, iiiiignisinm and
antimony, havo white rusts which are
not. soluble in water. These rusts form
a thin adherent coating, which only
l|-,,ll conceals the metal and gives to it
a dull, larulshed appearance.     It was
