It is beyond all doubt that Myrtle

smokers of Canada. They obtain
moro eujoymout from it than from
auy other tobacco made, nud thoso
of them who havo used it loug
enough to tost its merits never abandon it for any other brand. The
reason for thin preference is that tlio

At a public meeting hold last week
iu Bourne's Hall to discuss tho land
question Mr. R. Tapping was voted
tlio chair. Ho pointed out the great
disadvantages under which thoy
labored by not being permitted to
buy any laud at the station. No ono
cared to improve property unless ho
could seo a prospect of becoming tho
owner of it some day. According to
statislics, if tho people there could
buy tho land they lived on they
would bo $200,000 bettor off at the
eud of twenty years. Ho read a
resolution addressed to llio 0. P. R.
Land Commissioner praying that tho
land bo put on tho market for private
purchase. After a fow remarks from
Mr. 11, J. Bourne, who said thoy all
wanted to bo owners aud uot tonants
of the land thoy lived ou, the resolution was carried unanimously,
Gold in Big Bond.
Messrs. L, Mason and G. Laforme
arrived down from Big Bend this
week, bringing most gratifying news
concerning the placer mines there,
as well as a quantity of coarso gold
aud nuggets to back up their statements. .Mr. Mason says four men at
the Consolation mino took out ,*250
worth iu two shifts. At auothor
claim every shovelful of dirt panned
out $45, Owiug to an unfortunate
circumstance full details are kept
over till nest week. Mr. Laforme is
paoking iu the wiutor supplies, and
will mako throo trips. He left with
his pack train oil tho first of these,
Robberies at Revelstoke.
Development work has boen completed on all the claims at Fish
Crock. Tho Elizabeth aud Edinburgh, adjoining claims, both owned
by Mr. Ryckman, M.P., and Walter
.Scott, havo turned out wonderfully
rich, as anticipated. On the former
a shaft has beeu sunk, which is now
down 70 feet, being iu good oro on
an eight inch solid voiu. At the
surface tho mineral of this ledge
assayed from 175 oz, to 204 oz, per
ton j at tho bottom of the shaft it
goes ovor 300 oz. silvor to the ton,
Bhowing that the oro becomes richer
as it descends. The carbonates carried iu the lodo aro very rich, assaying over 700 oz. Thero is a large
quantity of galona and carbonates ou
tho dump ready for transport to the
smelter. They are driving a tunnel
to intersect tho lodo on tho Edinburgh, whioh is in about 50 feet, aud
they expect to strike the veiu withiu
auothor 15 or 20 feet.
At Coppor Hill the Silver Bow is
pauniug out exceedingly well, and
there are ovor 40 tons of rich peacock
ore now on the dump. This ore
carries 09 per cont, of copper, 820 in
gold aud 91 in silver. The lode has
boen traced for about 500 yards at
surface, aud iho vein runs from two
to four feet in thickness. Si-me fine
specimens havo beon taken from this
miue for exhibition at the world's
lair, Iu connection with the Silver
Bow, the following letter from Mr.
A, II. Holdich, an assoyer of over
twenty years' experience, who examined tho specimens for Chicago now
ou view at Illecillewaet, goes to
prove, that its wealth is a grand
real iiy :���
"Editor Kootenay Star, ���
"Ootober 18th, 1892.
"Dear sir,���Iu reply to your request that I should take notice of
the mineral specimens on view at
Illecillewaet, I can only say that tho
richness of tho ores astonished mo.
The galena scorned as solid at that
from the Freddie Loo���massive, with
some very close grained and some of
a larger crystalline structure, hut all
solid, clean oro, evidently from a
rein of considerable width. I was
informed of the average silver aud
gold contents, but havo unfortunately mislaid my notes, To tho
best of my recollection, however, it
wus uot extraordinarily high���probably 100 oz. silver per ton and a
littlo gold. But the copper ore, from |
thc Silver Bow claim, was by far the
finest spocimen of purple ore I have
seen in this country, aud for solidity,
purity, and lho sizo of the vein was
certainly a long way ahead of any in
tho Toad Mountain district. This
ore, I was informed, rau up to 09 per
cont. copper, with some silver and
about 920 in gold. I am not responsible for the assays, but it seems
quito possible that such is the fact,
although it is a high percentage for
copper oro. Ou my next visit I hope
to examino that aud other claims and
to get somo moro specimens of tho
mineral wealth of the distriot.���I am,
sir, yours obediently,
"A. II. HoMWii."
Wilhin half a mile of tho town and
only 2,000 feet from the O. P. R. is
tho Gnat Cave mino, whicli is ono of
tho most promising in the district.
Adjoining it is tlio Silver King (tho
original Silver King), whicli has a
splendid showing of galona at surface. It is to bo worked uext spriug
by a strong company.
Mr. Mcintosh, M.P., who is interested in sovoral miuing properties
here, has ordered a concentrator,
which will bo put in operation early
iu tho spring.
Mr. Owen, who is in Wost Kooto��
nay for the purpose of collecting
mineral specimens for exhibition iu
the windows of the C. P. R. ollico,
London, Eng., is visiting the whole
of Mr. Mcintosh's claims for the
purpose of getting 1,000 lbs, of oro
lo forward to tho capitalists at Ottawa whom Mr, Mcintosh represents,
This will no doubt convince them
that the Illocillewaet minus are quito
us good as they are reported to bo,
mid thai there aro no such tilings us
"wildcats" there.
Last Sunday night Mr. Coursier's
storo, Front Street, Rovelstoke, was
broken into ond several articles

back wimlow, and tho Rev, C. Ladner, whoso house adjoins, hearing
suspicious noises in tho store, sent

a quarter of a milo distant. On his
arrival it was fouud that the placo

years of ago, generally known by tho
uamo of "Jim," who was employed
as cook at the Columbia House till
about two months ago, was brought

Wednesday charged with stealing
certain articles from the storo of Mr,
H. N. Coursier.
Mr. Coursier gavo evidence identifying tho goods produced as beiug
part of his stock, His private mark
was ou them.
Oflicor Kirkup said : I know tho
prisoner, From information received
I arrested Rim yesterday. After his
arrest I searched tho room in which
he sleeps and found in a valise a pair
of drawers, a box of soap and a
brush, which were recognized by
Mr. Coursier as being part of the
goods he had missed. Mr, Coursier
also gavo me a pair of boots and
some dress goods returned to him,
which I now produce.
War Chung, sworn, said: I have-
known the prisoner six months. He
always bore a good oharaoter. I
huve always trusted him in my store.
Huvo kuown him send to Victoria

I'risouer had nothing to say, and

J. C. Wagner has rcoently discovered  in  the Lardeau a galena
lodgo uot far from the main contact
where he and his partners mado tbeir
first locations.   The ledge is from
eight to  ten feet wide and  well
mineralized. In several places where
it was cut into from three to four
feet of solid galena was found.   Tbe
ledge is a true fissure, cutting the
formation near tho head waters of
Haley Creek, on the divide between
that creek and Puncan River.   Portions of tbe ledge carry grey copp-t-
and blaok aotimonial silver, all being
of high grade ore.  The return of

The mother, enoumbered with many cares
Gila the littlo basket witli bountiful lunch,
hunts up the brimless straw hat a**d places
il mop of the bltwk, brown, or golden curls
ties the bonnet strings securely under tho
dimpled chin, ami with a sigh of relief turns
again to the unending housework,
What a relief it is lo know thut tho busy,
restless, misohievous little ones are oft'her
hands for all day and she may work, undisturbed by ohildish hurts and quarrels. A
mother of my acquaintance solemnly affirms
that when the children of her household are
safely headed towards the schoolhouse half
her (lay's work is ended, and her children
number but two after all
Now when this part of the mother's work
ends tho,teacher's begins, and yon are so
worried by at most a half-dozen of these
little busy bodies think for a moment of
tlie teachor Biirrounded by thirty or moro
of iheso same restless ones, good, bad, and
indifferent, all in the samo littlo room, and
decide whether you help or hinder that
For the sake of your own boys and girls,
if nut for Ihe sake oi the toiling schoolmistress, be a helper. The school is not si.nply
a place to send the children to keep thom
out of your way, but the post whero thoy
must be trained ii nd drilled for future usefulness, it is in your power to so aid tho
teacher that your child may receive the
greatest benefit, und you have it oqually in
your power to so cripple her elforts that in
the great account of your child's lifo thoro
will be charged up to you great loss.
I know many a mother will flay, "I cannot aid the teacher.   What time havo I ?"
My dear woman, you can aid even moro
by not foing than hy doing. "Firstly:"
Don't al'ow tlio children to he absent from
school unless it is absolutely unavoidable.
If you send them ut all, send regularly. I
know that" Mary" is needed in tho kitchen
and "John" in the haylield or store, but
as yon value your child's future welfare
above the " jingling of the guinea " in your
pocket to-day, I say to you "don't. " By
the way that last idea is not wholly for the
consideration of the mothers; the fathers
need to take two-thirds of it, leaving tho
mother her lawful third.
"Secondly i" Don't send tho children late
to school. Some of you have yourselves
lwcii teachers and can recall the annoyance
of having pupils reach the schoolhouse any
time from nine till noon, every fresh arrival
serving as an attraction for the wandering
minds of the urchins already assembled,
Don't send them to school, on the other
hand, at half past six in the morning to get
them out of your way. If you do, don't
blame the teacher for the quarrols and disturbances which occur before the house is
opened at eight.
Don't discuss the faults of the teacher and
her failing.. .Many qua ify that by adding
"in the presence of the children," but I
say to you, " don't do it at all." Common
charity forbids it and common courtesy
prohibits it. She has faults? Ofcourseshe
has and so have you ; but would you feel
that she was justified in pointing out your
shortcomings to your children or exposing
them to the gaze of your neighbor!
I once reproved a little fellow for using
an oath, and with the truthfulness of childhood he raised his eyes to my face and said
in vindication, "My papa swears."   Was
I called upon to tell that child that his I
father was a very had man ?   I was not re-1
quired to shake the child's faith in thefath- j
er.   Enough for me to teach him that the |
language was wrong, and that he must not I
use it.
Neither have ynu a right to destroy thu
ohild's faith in his teacher, nor  will you
find the teacher guilty of su'li wrongdoing.
Her faults are apt to be of tho head, not of
the heart.   When you see where sho fails,!
if you are very sure it is a failure, go to
her in all kindness and point out ihe error. j
I assure you that you will be received i.i!
the same spirit in which you come, aud tne i
ditheulty can easily lie adjusted if you come
in sincere friendliness, without auger, and
with the good not only ol your child hut ot
the en'ire sohool at heart.
Don't Ily into a rage if your child is pun- -
ished,    Doubtless he richly deserve,', all he
received.   Use a little reason and you will
realize that asyou yourself rind it necessary .
to punish severely, the teacher also must!
now and then do the same.    Don't preach
governing entirely by the power o; love un- j
til you have used that power so constant
at homo t'tr.t your children will obey
without quiition.
If " Willie" comeshnme in . S
ish rage because " teacher struck him oier
the hea 1, just for whispering," don'; rouse
yourself up in fancied righteous iudignati in
and de'.are that " a person who will strike
a child on the head is unlit to associate �� I

Injurious'.'   Ves, no doubt it ia,   But he- i
fore you judge I ������  laoher recall your own
actions  the day that  same "sweet :

I know vou wen- worn out and tired almost I

admitted that the thrlftiness ol the family
depends as much upon the economy of the
house mother as upon the industry of the
wage-earner. Xo one, says the .New York
Tribune, should despise small economies
though it is not an economy to use up a dollar's worth of tune in order to save a tuppenny worth oi material. Clothes may be
patched and mended to that extent that it
were actual saving of money to buy new
material rather thau put so much new cloth
on old garments. Despite all this, there is
not the least excuse for any woman allowing any particle of good nourishing
food to be thrown away. It is just as
easy to cook the meat that has been
cooked before aa it is to cook fresh meat.

A writer In Chambers's Journal thus do
scribes his experiences on the North-west
prairies:- Tiie harvest of 181)1 in Northwest Canada was the largest Canada has
ever had, and it was at the same time the
most disappointing. The frost and the
smut combined have made a good yield
and promising-looking orop almost profitless
to the settler. It has also been the crop we
have worked the hardest to nave. The
harvest was late and labour scarce ; a coupio
of men did the cutting, setting-up, and
stacking on mo t farms in this district. Of
course, this without self binders would have
beeu impossible; very often eacii man of
suoh a couple would he the owner of sixlv
or seventy acres of wheat; and they would
join together to put up the harvest of both
farms, in some eases, some isolated bachelor
was fanner, labourer, cook, and housemaid
all in ono; he, if any one, oould appreciate
that song where some individual introduces
himself as being the "boatswain bold and
crew of the captain's gig," besides covering
a let of other persons in his ono skin. In
this part of Asslnlhoia the stacking was not
finished till the beginning of November and
and covcrered the shocks of several belated
ones. After tho snow thc threshing-
machines came ; and from then till thc beginning of Maroh they kept steadily at their
work, and still there are stacks left, till
seeding is finished, whose owners could
not get a threshing outfit who had timo to
come to them. The way in which threshing
is carried on in this as iu most places round
here is on thc " bee " system, cut which is
likely soon to be replaced by each machine
taking a gang of men with it.
But at present when an engine and machine comes on to a farm, thc settlers lor
six miles round who have grain to be
threshed meet there, bringing their nitch-
forks with them. The married men, who
have cows and pigs, Ac, at home to be attended to, come with tbeir teams and
wagons, and go home al night. The bachelor turns all his live-stock adrift to forage
for themselves, mounts his pony taking his
fork and toiletapparatus���which last is represented by a pipe and plug of tobacco in
most cases���with him, and possibly an oxhide blanket. He camps in every house be
threshes at, if thc house belongs to a fellow-bachelor. A corner���tho farthest from
the door for choice���is bedded down with
an armful of straw ; on this, covered with
blanket and hide, he sleeps as soundly as he
does in the bed which tho farmer's wife
provides for him when the threshing reaches
that kind ofa farm.
A shanty twelve by fourteen feet is large
enough to accommodate six men at night,
and to cook for and feed twice that number
during tho day. With the thermometer
down in the zeros, there is no complaint
about stuffiness. A knot-hole in the wall
not big enough to shove your finger through
is amply sufficient to keep thc air of the
house thoroughly pure, and to allow a few
cubic feet of snow to trickle through on to
the floor or the sleepers below.
As soon as the engiue has got up steam���
a difficult matter ona cold day���and enough
hands have arrived, a start is nude. The
machine sits between two stacks, which are
threshed together; three men get on to
each stack, or, as a general thing, the
wholo crowd get, on each, and pretend to
ignore the fact that the straw-carriers or
grain-spout require any human attention
whatever. This little oversight.is pointed
out to i hem by the machine-men ; and after
all have claimed to have mounted the grain-
stack before any one else, some of the most
good-natured sorrowfully climb down, to
ou the straw, for whicli they look only for j
the public's anathema if they fail to keep
the straw away and let the carriers "bung."
As for any reward for hard work in the way
of praise, they know too well that it is the
peculiar attribute of that part of the machine
that, although hard work and all the dirt
come lhat way, the men on thc straw need
not look for praise.
With three men on each grain-stack, two
more men standing one on each side of the
feeder, to eu*. the bands on ihe sheaves and I
pass them to him along the feed-table ; and
three men on the straw, who stand in line
one behind the other, passing the straw from !
man to man, piling it up anyhow as long as
they can keep the mouth of the carriers freo ;
and when the grain-spout run into a largo
bin, one hundred bushels an hour is only an
ordinary average when the grain is good,
But when, as in this last threshing, there
are only two on the grain, and that only on
one side, and two ou tho straw, the above
average might be divided by fiva.
The  most   unpleasant  part  about   tho
machine is the part of tho men on  tho
straw;   this   ii  especially  so   when  thel
grain is smutty ;  thon  they am wrapped

Many days of this last last winter, threshing was carried on though the thermometer
marked thirty below zero, and the day was
not lhe beginning and end of work; for
often, as it grew dark, a man would be told
off to keep a straw bonfire going, and then
work would be carried on by its light three
hours after dark. It is a curious sight for
any one, after a long tramp ucioss tho still
prairie in the darkness, to come suddenly
to the hank of a creek or valley-edge and
sec a threshing outfit in full blast at tho
j hottnin, as once [ did after about an Hour's
] walk. Tho night was dark and thick with
a haze of frost; even the snow hardly show-
I ed bright underfoot. I had felt tho absolute
silence and loneliness of the prairie all the
j moro from being uncertain whether 1 waa
walking iu the direction of home, or only
just  wandering around, and   1 suspected
1 myself of thn latter. There were no stars
or wind to guide me; suddenly, a faint hum
of a threshing-machine caught my car, I
followed it; and after some twenty minutes 1 came to the brink of the steep
bank of a creek, and there in tho bottom,
in a blaze of red and yellow light, was a
threshing outfit hard a* work.   It looked
lot into an eternity of darkness and silence,
as though it was ouo littlo spot whero all
the life that remained in this world had
met, and made a small kingdom of light in
the middle of an oternity of darkness and
space. The hazo was so tiiick that the
snow, one hundred paces from the straw
fire did not reflect the light; but tho snow
round the stacks shone brilliantly, and lit
up the smoke that curled in heavy billows
and columns abovo the men's heads with a
bright yellow glare; while the red hot
heart of the firo itself, and the raked-out
ashes of the engine that was spluttering
away in the half-light of the background,
coloured the smoke and steam above them
a deep red, whicli gave a warm look to the
whole���a look only, for many were coin-
plaining of freezing fingers. I was not
sot ry I hod lost my way. I was in time for
supper, and supper is much on the same
lines as dinner at a threshing.

another side of many-sided London, The
streets adjacent to Bcvis Mark in tlie Mast
End are inhabited solely by merchants who
cater to the fickle fancies of the central
Africans. Here you can buy draflson such
distinguished bankers as Tippo Tib, of tho
Congo, or my friend Sid Bo'obkehr, of Tim-
buctoo and Tarudant. It is a regular

is lhe order of the dav. The talk of the
street is amber heads and ivory, and at
your option you can go long or short ou any
of those commodities just as though it wero
Chicago gas or October wheat. The
merchants arc most Levantines, with olive
complexions, and all the languages of the
Tower of Babel al their tongue's end. Ono
Knglish merchant we met, however, whoso
family had been in the caravan trado since
the day of Mungo Park. Ile had a hunted
expression in his eyes, and was evident'*'
anything but pleased with bis hereditary
business, whicli ho regardod as a family
curse. "Caravan trading," he said to ino
one day, in a moment of expansion, "is thn
greatest gamble on the face of this earth.
Por peace and a quiet life a constable along
tho docks has a better time of it. You cannot make a small deal and so feel your way
along slowly. No ; you must put all your

Arab, who has tho whole of the Dark Continent to hide away in."
From this gentleman wo also learned that
beads have their fashions aud their changing shapes and colors like articles of commerce in our civilized world. To keep up
with these restless fancies of the leaders in
African fashion, tho merchants of Bevis
.Mark are compellod to keep agents in Lamu,
Loando, Bagamozo, Mogador, and other
commercial and caravan centres, who wire
and write them of the rise and fall of fashions.
"I should say it was a gamble," sighed
the merchant, sadly. " Last year the Swa-
heli traders on the Vana were shouting for
perfectly round Carniola beads. So as soon
its I could have them made, 1 shipped out to
my agents some thirty tons of them. Make
money! No. Just look at this telegram
from Lamu: 'Fashion changed. Swaheli
traders won't have blue beads at any price.
Want green. Shall sell shipment to children
of coast towns���play marblca with.'"
I give this glance at the African markets
to show some of tho minor difficulties of fitting out a caravan. A bead seems a trivial
thing in London, where it costs but an infinitesimal fraction of a oont. But when

his claim produced an ugly-looking knifo.
'It will do you no good to cry out,' he said,
'for you cannot be heard in the street, and
no ouo in this building will come to your
aid.' I hud sized him up pretty close and
concluded that he was bluffing���that he
would not dare kill me in the very heart of
Loudon, so I assumed a careless air and
told him that if he robbed me he would
have to kill me first, and that ho might
just as well get at it. 'Oh, I know that
you have got a pistol, but I'm not afraid of
it,' he said. 'Most Americans carry pistols
for just such cattle as you,' f replied, with
all the coolness I could assume. 'Now, if
ymi aie not afraid of it, why don't you get

N.\kusp, Oct. 19lh.
Hurrah for Nakusp! It hai mado
a move in tho right direction at last.
Weary of waiting for tlio Govornment fo act, tbe inhabitants have
decided to put tbeir shoulder to tho
wheel and make the road themselves.
It will be a sleigh road. Timo wil)
not permit tho making of a wugon
load tbis full. Tbo Now Denver
people will back tbem up by putting
in a good road from Sloean Luko to
tbo mines. Tbis project was only
istarted a fow days ago, but is already
���fully matured, and tbo work will lie
commenced at once, so ns to have it
ready for Ibo shipment of ore before
tbe snow flies,
Many prominent men lmvo been
interviewed on the subject, and all
have responded favorablv. Oaptnin
Troupe, manager of tbe 0. & K. Nav.
<!o,, and Mr. Downey, dcputy.sttpt.,
C.P.ll., have promised to lay the
matter beforo thoir respective companies, with good prospects of success. Mr. Mahon, of Vancouver, lias
promised a subscription of J200. All
thoso still left in the town (with a
fow exceptions) havo promised to do
their utmost. Among thoso who
have already subscribed are Messrs.
Hum-no Bros., Mr, Grunt Tborbnrn,
Mr. Hugh Madden and oh: John
Kutbwoll. Mr. Nivr.lt, tlie contractor, will give a mouth's work with
his meu and horses���a most generons
offer. Several others will give tbeir
labour free ; so there is uo doubt tbe
road will go through Hying.
One of our principal citizens has
interviewed Mr. Napoleon Fitzstubbs
at Nelson on tbo snl'jeet, and the
remarks put forth by tiie ponderous
braiu of tbat governmental moss-
bnck are typical of the tbo man :
"Ugh! Yes, to be sure; best thing
you can do ; movo in the right direction ; beeu hoping Nakusp ueople
would pnsu   out   for

Wo wero all deeply grieved to hear
of lbe sudden death in New Denver
of Mr. Jack Evans, of Nakusp, last
Friday night.   He was seized with a
sudden attack of inflammation, and
boforo an)thing in the way of modi
cal aid could bo procured be expired,
Jack   was   a   prnspoctor, and was
well liked by everyone who knew
him,    Of ft quiet, refiling tlispoM-
tion, bo was not often seen in town,
preferring to bo on lhe mountains
following his profession.
