Two or three weeks ago Geo. Laforme
drove some cattle to Big Bend to furnish
fresh moat for tho miners during the
winter. But one of tbe animals refused
to proceed and persistently turned back,
eventually escaping into tbe timber. It
was seen on several occasions, and last
Sunday a party of men went up tbe trail
to bring it in. The animal was very
vicious, repeatedly charging tbe crowd,
and was eventually laid low by Tom
Rightou's rifle. A pair-horse sleigh
brought tbe carcase and half-dozen hunters back to town.
In view of tbe probability of the uncertainty with respect to the value of
silvor oontinuiug, the people of Revel-
toke have great hopes that next spring
operations will be commenced on tbe
gold reefs in the Big Bend. One of the
chief drawbacks in tbe way of the district's advancement has been the difficulty of getting supplies into it, but an
inkling has been givon of tbe Government's alleged inteutiou of spending a
liberal amount of money to obviate this
difficulty, and consequently hopes fur
the Big Bend run somewhat high in
Revelstoke. With proper working it is
said that many of the placer grounds in
tbat district could bc made to pay huud-

A Complaint from Hall's
Sin,���The Government has oonstruot-
od a wagon road hore this Hummer at a
coat of $100, and, as far us it ban gone,
the road is a great convenience, Hut it
does not K" 'nr enough, Of the 18 or
20 settlers here, ojily (our or fivo are
really benefitted by the rond. Our
representative (Mr. Kellie) wrote to the
Chief Commissioner asking for iJ200
more to complete tbe road through tbe
settlement,and received u reply that lhe
Government Agent ut Bevelstoke was
instructed to expend that amount in extending tho romi if he thought it necessary. He did not think it necessary,
nud the road remains incomplete. Hull's
Landing is becoming a very important
place, and a road through the settlemeut
is au actual necessity. The ranchers
pay their taxes similar to ranchers else
where, and have never before had any
assistance from the Government. What
we wunt to know is whether the Gov-
ment approves tbe ugent's action in this
matter. If so, wo sball know bow to
vote at tbe next eleotiou.���Yours trnlv,
Hall's Lundiug, Nov. 21st, 1893.
A Workman's Grievance.
Sin,���I have been working on the new
railway, and when my contract was
accepted by the engineers in October
I got my estimate from them and wont
to the contractor's office to Battle np.
The clerk gave me a timo check payable
ou the 15ib November, Although my
work was finished and there was nothing
more for me to do, I had to wait around
until that date. I went to the office on
November 15th aud was told by the
clerk to call again on tbe 18th, as the
paymaster would be thero on that date.
I went again on the 18tb, and was told
to come on tbo 20th. Well, sir, I went
on the 20th, and was met by tbe same
old story���"No money in the office; call
again on tbe 23rd."
I always understood this was a poor
man's couutry, but it seems that the
poor man has uo redress whatever. It
is a shame that, the law allows big contractors to keep men hanging around
week alter week to got their pay. If I
cuuld have got my pay wheu it was due
I would have been able to pay my fare
| to some other place, but now I must
stop here oi go on tho tramp. I shall
not go to tho office to be told to "call
again," but will see how much I cau get
for this timn check at otic of tho hotels.

Gas from Wood.
George R. Cowls, a pattern-maker of
Tacoina, has invented a machine for
making gas from wood. Besides 18,000
cubic feet of gas, it will produce from a
cord of firewood 13 sacks ol charcoal
aud tno gallons of tar, worth altogether
$18.^ A patent has been granted the in-
vontor, The maohiue is vory simple,
consisting of a retort and purifying
chamber, with a tank to bold the gas.
Cowls claims that the machine cau be
used for doim stiu purposes by attaching it to a Btove, and that sufficient gas
can be obtained during tho cooking of
three meals to last all day. He olaims
that the machine will revolutionize the
production of gas wh, re wood is cheaper
than coal. Ro is potting a macbiue in

T.i.-ai was a misohievous prank ho played
in days of yore on a boy in Norselnnd, anil
whom WO call Olaf. Pay heed and yon
shall learn nbo it il.
Olaf who tho only son of a widow, and
she was both foebli nnd poor. Sho had
taught the boy to wait on hor, an.l this
in..' e Iiim kind ami thoughtful.
Ono day she sent him for some flour to
tho storohouto. This was a frame building, raised fiom the ground on wooden
props, and it was readied by a flight of
stairs. Olnfran lightly up the steps, got
the flour, and was turning to hasten down
again when North Wind came puffing and
panting that way, caught up tlle Hour and
hore it o.'i' through the air.
Olaf went back for moro flour, hut alio
moment ho sot foot on the stalra North
Wind snorted and sniffed aboul him, and
pips!���away went the Hour. If you'll bolide mo the sumo thing happened a third
time, ami now Olaf was positively angry,
for it seonied quite too provoking that North
Wind should act in such a senseless fashion.
So Olaf made up his mind that lie would go
in search of the thiof and demand back tho
He ae:. out at onco, but ho walked many
a long, weary mile before ho camo at last
to North kind's home.
North Wind ha I quieted down, and was
in a most gracious mood when Olaf presented himself before him.
" Good-day," said Olaf. "I hope you
arc well, Mr. North Wind."
''Thesameto yourself, my hoy!" said
North Wind, and his voice was gruff, but
not unkind, " What brings you here, if I
may ask?''
"I've come,"said Olaf, "to seo if you'll
he so kind as to give back the (lour yon
took from mo on lhe storehouse stairs,
Mother and 1 are poor, ami if wa lose the
litlle we have we'll starve to death."
"J haven't your Hour," siid North
Wind j " hut sinoe you're so badly oil here's
a tablecloth for yen. Jt will supply you
with all you want to eat and drink, if you
but ray : "My cloth, spread yourself and
seive up all sons of good things,"
Thanking North Wind with all his heart,
Olaf took the cloth and started for home.
As the way was so long he couldn'i hope to
get hack to his mother that night, so he
stopped at a wayside inn to rest until morn-
When the poeple at the inn began to prepare the evening meal, Olaf though', he
won! 1 surprise them, So he throw his cloth
on a table in lhe corner, saying,
" My cloth, spread yourself, and servo up
all sorts of good things."
Scarcely had hi spoken before the cloth
as soon as Ulaf thought mine hoat hail
beeu well punished, ho said, quietly:
" My stick, bo still."
At onco tlio magic stick ceased from Its
labors, and the landlord restored the Btolen
ninth to iis rightful owner.
()!af put the iaide cloth and tho sti.k in
his pocket and went homo iii ".riuinph.
North Win 1 had paid handsomely for the
flour, and tho widow and her son lived iu
peace and plenty all their daya.

After a number of trills, in which nono

if he might spis&k, Given psrinissioii, ho
said :
"Missionary, w* five," painting io ail

Jimmy is a cripple. Ho cannot run through

The beat prize was handed to the cripple

more than words could that he was thankful.

"Flitasn years ago," says (Ieorge W.
Rae, a Manitoba pioneer, "tho grizzly bear
was ao plentiful amongtho Manitoba Rockies that the Hudson Bay Company annually
scoured many hundreds of their shins from
the army of hunters and trappers that had
ils range in that wild region; but to-day
this fierce aid ponderous beast���nowhere
so li"rce or of such enormous proportions a?
among tho Manitoba fastnossoa���is i|uHo a
rarity in ita old ii units, and 1 doubt if one
can now be come upni without a dillbult
and tedious journey of at leasl throe hundred
miles into
of tho province The grizzly has met with
almost ns hard a fate as tno hulTalo, although from liio nature and isolation of its
present retreats, and the difficulties attendant on hunting and trapping lor it, tho
grizzly heir, !. I the Manitoba moose, will
never become extinct in that country. I
believe lint tho moose, although tho flesh
of 2,000 of tlirin is required to supply the
military Btationsiu lho territory alone with
fresh meat every year, is j�� plentiful today in ils wild retreals as it lias been at
any time since tho great inroad; of lur and
pelt hunters were began in the territory.
"1 know no reason why the grizzly bear
of iho Manitoba Hookies should grow so
much larger than iho grizzly of Iho same
mountains in the Slates, but a long and
varied experience iu hunting these animals
in thoir respective localities lias proved to
mo that such is the fact. No grizzly boar
lhat 1 ever captured, or that I over know lo
bo captured south of Manitoba, measured
moro than seven loot and a half from nuzzle
lo tail, or woigho I morc than 1,200 pounds.
But it was no uncommon thing in the palmy
days of grizzly bears in Manitoba for the
hunter or trapper to bo confronted by oneof
nine feet in length and with a bulk of 1,500
pounds or more. I have seen Manitoba
grizzlies that, when lhey threw themselves
on their haunclics and rose erect, towered
livo and six feot above mc, and I want to
tell you that it lakes a man with large
quantity and the best quality of nerve to
stand in their tremendous presence and pro���
pare to do battle coolly and with a level
head, drizzly boars, like all the rest of
tho bear family, havo tho curious habit of
rising against a tree, and, reaching up as
far as they oan with tlicir foropawa, making
marks in thc bark by digging it with their
claws. I have more than once como across
these meas .ring marks of a grizzly, as the
murks on iho bark are called, twelve feet
above the ground. Imagine coming suddenly upon a boast liko that, in some deep
ravine or isolated apot almost impassable
owing to the down timber heaped and
tangled on the ground and surrounded by
rocks and thick underbrush. The sight of
his great jaws, open and red,and his eyes
Hashing in fury at you from the enormous
head that towers so far above yotl, is something only to be apprceialedwhen once seen.
When thoro were buffaloes on the plains,
Manitoba grizzly bears wcre keen and persistent hunters of them. When a grizzly
and a buffalo met there was sure to be a fearful contest, although it seldom lasted long
and tho buffalo was usually tho victim. The
buffalo bull, when confronted by a bear,
would invariably
upon its big and ugly foe. This was just
what tho bear desired, and he awaited,
erect on his haunches, tho onset of the buffalo. As tho latter rushed forward, with
lowered head, and was almost upon tha
bear, the immense grizzly threw himself
to one side, and with a blow as
quick as lightning wiih ono of his great
forepawsseldom failed to break Iii3 antag-
onist's neck, A Manitoba grizzly I1113 been
known to engage, in rapid succession, four
and even five infuriated bull'alo bulls, and
kill every one of thom, It sometimes happened, though, that a bull younger and
more agile than his companion succeeded
in evading the fatal blow of the grizzly's
terrible paw long enough to give in turn a
deadly thrust of Iiis horn into the bear's
side, puncturing the vitals, and making
lho contest a mutual slaughter.
"In genera! characteristics, of course, the
Manitoba grizzly is nol in auy way dillerent
from others of the family. vVhile i believe
that a grizzly bear will sometimes wait and
precipitate a lighl with a man, and take
pains to put himself in tho way nf one, in
the great majority of cases he will take a
second I bought about the matter and back
out. A queer instance of this disposition
eame to my knowledge onco where
courageously advanced upon three grizzlies,
an old she oue and two half-grown cubs,
and, by u series of ridiculous monkcyshincs
and acrobatic mantonvres within a rod or
two of tho threatening bears, filled them
with such astonishment and apparent fear
that they retreated to the woods as fast as
they could go.
"The hunter's gun had mapped in both
barrels, Ho having drawn on lho old boar
beforo thu young ones came upon lhe scene.
It was in a lit of desperation that ho tried
the turning of a hand spring and jumping
up and down, chipping his hands, and re-
s iriing toother iiiihuntorlike measures. Ho
Ini been lohl once that a hunter had
hlened a mountain Uou away by similar
absurd movements, and ho found that it
worki 'I to porfoction in the ease of the
im. ii!y heirs, but ho nover, even in
tl c lhal fact, advised or encouraged
ny on to go hunting Manitoba or any
.tin i I ind I. grizzlli s armed with nothing
moro than a capacity to turn  grotesque

Very feebly and faintly the pulse of lifo

Very despairingly does Lady Etwynde
watch beside him.
It is twelve hours since that last message
went. Twelve hours, and in every one of
those has tbat "ame question been on the

They cannot tell.   They can only hope.
At last ho falls asleep, and Lady

" She," mutters Sir Francis. " Was

Quite suddenly ho lifts hia languid eyelids and looks eagerly, joyfully up. " Siie

Sho sinks on hor knees;ahe is trembling

Phcn there was a period of litigation
between tho Bell and Edison interests,
which is referred lo at length by the writer,
and also reference is made of the interest
taken in lho invention by tho telegraph
oompaniosand the formation of a separate
company, in lepcndcut of all tho telegraph
companies. The Bell Telephone Company
was organized in IStiO; it took over all the
existing plants aud patent, reorganized and
consolidated the exchanges, and begun the
manufacture of all kinds of telephonic apparatus.
The writer closes his interesting paper as
follows; Canada has kept pace with all tho
advances in tiie art of telephony. Metallic
trunk lines between towns in Ontario and
Quebeo were erected and put in operation
when the system was Iirst introduced into
the United States, and nil llio best and
most modern switching and signalling appliances have ben furnished, tnus ensuring
to the publi; a most reliablo servieo. On
tome points it may be said that Canada, is
in advance of other countries, notably in
the system of duplexing telephone trunk
linos, which is now in operation in Toronto.
The vast number of country trunk lines,
both metallic and single, in the older provinces, show that the service is appreciated
and used by all classes of thc com uiiuily,

The largest of the KID or moro islands
comprising tiie Paumotti group in thc south
Paciticocean is called Nairn, and up tea
few years ago was ruled by a native who
went by the title of King John. This group
ia about equidistant from New Zealand and
the Sandwich islands, and sailiug craft are
dispatched from both places to trade with
the natives. A few months bc o e my story
Ofiens an English whaler called at the island
of Nairaa to renew its supply of water and
fuel and secure fruits and vegetables, and
discovering that King Johu, who was then a
man of 00, had a fondness for whisky, the
captain lot him drunk and sailedaway owing
him about .?100. The king aud his people
were highly indignant over tlio trick played
on them, and it waa agreed that the next
craft which visited the island should bc hold
responsible for damages, The population of
the island was then about 4,000, and its
chief industries were shells and fancy woods.
In due course of time the New Zealand
brig Ranger, which was on a trading voyage
to the northeast, called at Nairn, the chief
port of which is called JIailo and is situated
at the end of a bay two miles from the sea.
We hadn't heard of tlio troublo with the
whaler, and King John gavo us suoha kindly
welcome that it was impossible to suspect he
had any evil intentions. He had at least ten
tons of cargo for us, while we still had a lot
of goods on hand, and the brig was anchored
within a stone's throw of his town and her
whole crew invited as-boro toa feast prepared in honor of tho occasion, I speak as if
we might have had a dozen men. Oil the
contrary, being a small craft we carried only
seven men, counting captain and cook. In
these trading craft the captain and cook
turn to with the rest. There were two boys
nf us. and the mato ordered me to remain ou
board as the anchor watch. Whilo tho people were supposed lo be perfectly honest, it
was not thought wise to leave the brig entirely alone.
It was about 6 o'clock in tho evening
when the men pulled ashore in the yawl,
and the shouting, aud laughing, and tho
bonfires wero evidence that the entertainment began atouce. Ithadjustgrown fully
dark when King John and about fifty of his
subjects came alongside in tlieir canoes and
clambered on board. Before I could ask
uny questions I was knocked down and had
my feet and ankles securely tied. Nono of
them deigned to explain what was going on,
hut in a few minutes I picked up enough of
lhc conversation to satisfy me that the men
ashore had been overpowered, aud that
King John proposed to pet the brig up tlie
river which emptied into llie bay just there.
There waa water enough to float her, but
our oaptain had preferred an outside anchorage for obvious reasons. Tlie tide was running out. rather strong, but in their hurry
to got possession tho natives cither overlooked the fact or thought they wero strong
enough to overoome it, A long two-inch
rope, which thoy had either bought or
.stolen from some craft, was made fast to
tiie brig's bows, and tho canoes tool; ths
free end. Then thoy bngan work at the
iron cubic, but not knowing how to
unshackle it they grow impatient, and King
John ordered me cast loose lo do iho work.
I 'ried to explain to him what wonld happen
if 1 did, but he atril J. mo in tho face and
ordeied nic to go ahead,
I got a hammer and drove out tho shackle pin. Wo had a lot of chain out, and the
brig was pulling hard at licr anchor. The
canoes were almost in line under llio cable,
and aa it was unshackled almost a* the
windless nnd wont, out of the hawic hole as
il drawn by an engine a score or more of
natives were badly hurt and throe or four
canoes upset. As their tow rope straightened out thoro was a grand yell for the
canoes to go ahead, but tlio brig started
.stern first down the bay nud pulled the lot
of them after her. King John ami about
thirty of hia subjects wero on hoard, and
while they congregated at tho hows and
yelled and gestured I ran aft and gave the
wheel a few turns and lushed it, As the
brig drifted the rudder gradually threw her
around, and protty soon she waa going down
the bay in shipshape fashion.
The natives wore all more or less under
the infl icncs of tho half barrel of rum which
went ashore with the crew, ami when the
brig started oil'wiih thom thoy became
panic-stricken, The Cannes could have taken everybody off, and the craft could have
been beached lower down the bay, but iu
losing their heads they  lost all chances.

bnt the brig had got away with thcni in

lamenting and in au almost helpless condition it struck me that 1 must keep the ad
then tho natives were compelled to put tne
whole aboard.
The king had bcen rope's ended so often-
thai he kept crying out io hia people to
hurry, and for once in their lives the lazy,
indolent fellows got a move on them. The
captain was for burning lhc town before
we sailed away, but the mates dissuaded
him from this step. King John had a fleet
of fourteen canoes, which did not escape so
vaatage which circumstances had plueed in easily however. We sent armed meu in
my hands. If tho crow had not been mur- the yawl to bring them off, and then obliged
dered out of hand there might be away to one canoeman to rake the gang ashore, six

brig drifted along, and I finally came to the
conclusion that the best thing I could do
was to let her drift.

island two weeks after wo left, Hc found
old King.lolm as humble as a lamb, but
hc had nothing to barter and wanted nothing but somo white man's liniment to relievo his aches and pains.
and then I had thc craft to myself. Every
man was likely to bo in fair shape by daylight, providing the sea did not get up,
and it struck mo that their first movo
would be to hunt for rum, We had plenty
of it aboard, and I got a fresh keg out of
the lazaret and rolled it on deck, It was
lucky for the natives that wc had no poison
aboard, aa I should assuredly have dosed
the contents ot tho keg. Aftor making the
keg ready I spent an hour in hunting up
small atutf and cutting it to proper lengths,
aud it was midnight beforo I weut down
to the captain's room and turned in. Ho
had a fowling piece and a revolver and in
the mute's berth 1 found a second revolver.
I placed these fire-arms handy to my reach,
aud then tumbled into the bunk and went
to sleep, knowing by the shino of tho stars
that I should wake up and find a pleasant
morning. I slept liko a top till about au
hour aftor daylight, wheu tho first of the
natives found the keg of rum and raised a
great rojoicing. It wasn't ten minutes before every mail of tho lot was guzzling it
down liko water. Tlie brand of rum wo
carried would discount anything but pure
poison. Everybody was gloriously drunk
in half an hour, and after a grand free fight,
in which oven hia majesty's head was vigorously punched, they began to drop down
like so many bag3 of sand.
If I had not been entirely forgotten they
at least did not disturb me, and when I felt
it safe to do so I crept ou deck. If we had
been carrying a deck load of hogs things
could not have been much worse. Every
man Jack of them was laid out on thc broad
of his hack, and my first move was to secure
the three  old  muskets  and other arms
brought aboard, Everyone had a knife.and heen answered readily and wit!

to expect if they got free I pulled the ropes
very tight and took caro the knots were secure. I waa fully two houra securing tho
crowd, and then I dragged thom all over on
thc port side and spent another hour washing down a portion of the deck and makiug
things look decent,
The morning as I might havo told you before, was calm and pleasant, and the island
was iu sight about twelve miles to the west.
Asfar ns I could make out the brig was stationary, but soon after I had lighted the
galley firo and got ine a cup of eoll'eo and a
bit to eat a light breeze came out of the
east, and I saw that we wcre drifting luck
toward tlie island, I got all the firearms on
deck and loaded thom, filled the cook's coppers with water and replenished the fire,
and then I waited to see what would turn
up. Tho wind was so light that tho brig
moved very slowly, and at high noon we
ware still two miles off the bay. I went
aloft with the captain's glass and made out
that thoio was great excitement in the town,

During the year 1S91 20a lives wcre lost
(that we know of) in the L'nited States,east
of the Rocky mountains, directly through
the actim of lightning. How many were
lostindirectlyand howmany cases there were
of shattered health and more or less permanent injury we can only surmise, says the
Popular Science .Monthly. The financial
loss due directly to lightning was certainly
not below 81,500,000."
To get at something like a commercial estimate of tho damage done by lightning in
the last few years in this country I have
made use of the Chronicle firo tables for the
six years 1885-1890, and find that some ���),-
226 fires, or 1,3 per cut. of the whole mini-
ber.were caused by lightning, and the total
loss was $3,380,826, or 1,25 per cent, of the
whole amount lost by tire. During 1S92 we
have a record of 202 lives lost, The damage
may be estimated at as high a figure as in
1S01. The losses are tho more appalling
when we recall that the year ia virtually
less than six months. Over ilj per cent, of
tiie casualties due to lightning occur between the months oi April aud September.
It is therefore quite pertinent at this time
to discuss the question whether or not we
are able to protect ourselves from lightning.

Can it be possible that the C. P. R.

goods are in like proportion it is uo
wonder the small towns along tbe

Beantifully situated on the Lake

shortest road to the Sloean mines and
New Denver. The best fishing and
hunting iu the district, Tith grand
boating and sketching facilities for
tourists aud artists.
Is situated at the bead of tbe North-En st Arm of Upper
Arrow Lake. It i.s (he easiest point from which to enter the
remarkably rich mines of the Lardeau and Fish Creek Dis-
triets. It will have the advantage oi' both rail and steamboat lines. The C.P.R. will begin thel'uildingol'a line from
Revelstoke to the N.E. Arm of Arrow Lake as soo*i as the |
weather will permit. LARDEAU is at the head of niivigfin
tion on this Ann, and will be the terminus of steamers and
that ot the Lardeau & Kootenny Railway. There is no
question that the Rich Mining Districts which are tributary
to LARDEAU will attract thousands of Prospectors and
Capitalists during the pre-jent season, nud that a large town
will grow up at that point. The history of Kaslo will be
repeated at LARDEAU this year, and investors in Kootenay
property should study the situation. Kaslo, in many in-
stances, has already repaid from 500 to 1,000 per cent, to
Xevelstoke. New Denver
