BIO BEND.
Whon snob men ns J. W. Haskins,
Sol, Holden, Tom Horno nml Ed, Dunn
pronounce tbo Big Bend gold fields
"all right" if properly handled, vou can
figure on its being pretty near correct.
"Go north, young man, ro north."
This is uot exactly what Horace Greely
said, but the sense of tho phraso can
probably bo appreciated by tho silver
minors of West Kootenay, when north of
them lio the Big Ben,) gold fields.
Bob Oroen und Ed. t'iciird, two llov-
olstokiarm, left for Cniucs Crook, Dig
Bend, on Monday, Several others,
mostly now arrivals, lmvo already gone
up the trail, Tho season promises to
open early, and it is oxpoctcl thn pack
train will be running next month.
Messrs. Gcorgo and John Terryherry,
who left for Curnes Ore.!'!' Lint Saturday,
returned here on Wednesday, having
accomplished tho object of their journey, Thoy staked off 2% milea on tho
creek above tho canyon, which inoludeB
the looation formerly known as tho "Rip
van Winkle" mino. This largo aeotion
was staked on behalf of tho following
local parties:���Messrs. 1). and F, Robinson, R. Howson, M. David and Goo.
Terry berry, who will form a company
ODd work the property with propor appliances. There are four cabins thero
in a good stats of preservation, and
these wero cleared of snow and mado
habitable, so that ns soon as supplies
can be taken up active operations will
be commenced. A sawmill plant will
be takeu np as soon as pcssiblo and the
lumber cut for new flumes and other
requisites, as well us n good boarding-
house. Tbe ground is "deep diggins"
placer, and the prospects are said to be
as good as any io the Bend.
It is a very enoouragitig fact to note
that several of our local tradesmen are
beginning to wake np to the knowledge
that thore is gold in Big Bond. Outsido
capitalists will know that if local men
are willing to risk their monoy on placer
miuing in the Bend there must bs something in it moro than mere reports. The
gold dust and nuggeis rocently brought
into Revelstoke from French Creek have
certainly started a " gold fever." This
is as it should be. All the good things
ought not to be taken by outsiders.
The fame of the old Rip van Winkle
olaim seems to have beeu noised abroad
considerably, and there were othcr local
parties waiting the opening of the trail
to go up and stake it. As it was, the
Terryberry brothers got in their stakes
none too soon, for the very next day a
gentleman walked into their camp, having walked up from Revelstoke for the
purpose of staking off this very identioal
bit of ground. This was Mr. O. D,
Hoar, the well-known Lnrdeau prospeo-
tor, who quietly left town last Sunday.
Finding his inteutions forestalled lie
made no locations and returned with
Messrs. Terryberry.

MANUFACTURER OF k DEALEPf

RdT<*h and Prtsuef*
LUMBER,
CONTRACTOF   &6> Herbert D, Ward, in "Century Magazine,
Tne house of Terakh was astir. Feverish
activity was manifest from tho outer oourt
to the inner sanctuary, Black slaves from
Cush hurried noiselessly ; tltny carried too 1
for the family ; they sprinkled the floors
with perfumed water; a tewpaced the high
wall th.it surrounded tho house. Of those
the chief wns witching for thc risiag of the
sun, while the others peered down tho dark
street toward thc bridge ami the city wall
as if awaiting an honored guest.
It was tiie month of tho Altar of Righteousness, and the fourteenth day of that
month was nearly at hand. That was tho
day and night of all the year dedicated to
the worship ofthe moon-god Hurki. Thousands were already encamped within aud
about the gates of Ur, the capital oity of
the Chaldeans, ready to participate in tlio
splendid ceremonials of thc sacred time,
The worship of the gods demanded a pro-
fes-ion which has gradually faded away
until it has become exlinct. It was an occupation which was the very foundation of
tho arts of painting and of sculpture! it
was a mystery rather than a craft; it was a
charge thatthe state committed tothohands
of one family only -, it was a vocation that
demanded a rigid adherence to rules the
origin of which was lost in the mists of his-
Vary. It also called for a creative fancy that
was tilted to inspire the fervor of a fanatic
people. Ho who followed its pursuits,
though admitted to tho esoteric secrets of a
jealous ido'atry, iliil not share in its administration. He inspired the influence of an
erosive priesthood, but did not wield it.
Without him even tho gods were impossible,
and religion was dead. Men must see what
they worship, and Terakh, like his family
boforo him for many generations, was a
carver of wood, a hewer of stone, a maker
of gods. Kven now, in the black of tho
day, while it was yet cool, ho was standing
b.",i'ore a terrible image in stono upon which
ho was chiseling the finishing touches.
Tho room was srpiare and high. A flickering lamp suspended from the ceiling mado
tho grotesque face of the silting statue
scowl and grimace as if it were alive. Its
life-size stone arms wore extended with a
gesture at once horrible and caressing. Its
stono face, bending forward, had been cut
into ferocious lines by Terakh, and was as
much the embodiment of malignity a3 rude
art could make it, A blood-thirsty god,
this Hurki, impatient for the ghastly sacrifice which every year placed upon his
arms a living babe, the. first-born of a helpless household, tho darling of some doomed
homo.
Tho old man stepped back, viewing his
masterpiece with a grave smi'e of satisfaction, He was a tall man, as lean as a io3t
ideal. His straight white beard swept his
waist; bis low cap, which had been at one
time ornamented with two red horns that
tood upright, had lo3t one altogether, while
the other had a listless droop; his robe had
been originally an elegant garmant, flounced and striped and fringed, but now it was
dingy and frayed, and the hole through which
his loft arm protruded bad a gaping rip. It
was llu costume ot a man indifferent to
opinion, too old to make dl'OSS a matter of
moment, who lived for achievement rather
than for luxury. Yet Terakh was one of
thc princes of Ur. Ue w,ts a friend and
counselor of the great king, hc was beloved
hy lho priests, ho was a patriarch in tho
land, and hia family hail preferment n-nong
the peoplo. In a nation that, worshiped
images, what might not bo given to him
who alono was the maker of tho gods themselves?
Terakh had a curiouB expression of great
pride and of passionate longing. Itwas a
face of sorrow and disappointment. His
was n countenance iu whicli religious en-
th 'Binsm was lacking. Was it because the
maker of trods eo.ild not worship them! The
curl of bis lip as ho stood there alone,
admiring and disdaining his handiwork,
seemed ready to utter the hearts of all the
priests of antiquity���"Thou art a god for
the people, but not for me." With a breath
of relief Terakh cast his bronZ9 hammer
and his chisel upon tho tilec The moon-
god was finished,
j\n I now, before tho dawn, a  caravan
could be heard approaching   thc hoi;-" , f
Terakh.   Riders on velvet-footed camels
preceded the motley cavalcade with great
dignity : while behind them wild-looking
retainers upon stallions drove a cloud of
eheep  and  goats up the narrow  street
until they huddled, tremhli i: ind panti ig,
before the gate that shut off the hu   i, mrt
and the house of Terakh  from  the  -
Situated noxt to the temple wall, Tei   i
establishment was i village in itself.   It
had courtyards, a large inn for guests, a
garden, and fountains���enough room for a
regiment of men and ca 'I'1.

Before the statue of Hurki���before tho
grinning god��� Terakh and A lui-ramu,kuee!-
iug, clasped and kissed.
" llaran is my eldest, Naahor is my
youngest, but thou art thn mightiest and
the best-beloved of them all," said Terakh,
with a gesture of blessing and with much
emotion,
Twelve times the moon had encircled the
earth since Abu-rainu had visited his fai Iter's houso. Ton years ago ho bad besought
Terakh for his portion of tho inheritance-
This he had taken, and had ohanged into
flocks tho rugs and robes, the slaves and
lands, the wheat and barley, the gold and
silver, that had come to him, and had gone
to the desert. There, sheltered by his rov-
I ing tout, and protected from robbers by
the courage which he taught his followers,
he had increased his wealth tenfold, and
had made his influence anions the wandering tribes of the region so powerful that
they called him Abu-ramu, thc " exalted
father." This name clung to him during all
his stirring adventures until hia death. For
by birth, by intelligence, by imagination,
and by fortune, the son of Terakh was a
prince among the people ; and Amrapliel,
the king of Ur and of Shinar, feared the
independence of no other man in his kingdom as he did that of the young owner of
man-servants and maid-servants.andof cattle like the stars in number, who already,
in his youth, was respectfully called " the
father " of the plains of Shinar. Kven Terakh felt a secret awe of iiis eon when he
looked into tho young man's unfathomable
eyes���eyes fearless under the might and
blight of a priesthood that multiplied omens
and incantations and gods until tho people
trembled under a despotism more withering
than that of the whip. It was even possible
for a man to flee from the slavery of Amra- i
phol; but who could escape tho curses of,
Hea, or Ishtar, or Zamnma, or ^Nebo, or
Shamash, or Hurki, and the persecutions of;
a hundred other minor gods, who mado ;
themselves dreaded ard dreadful under tho j
rapacious guidance of the priests ?
" It is my will that thou serve Hurki,the |
god of the gods, in the great temple,"
Terakh had said to his son when the lad j
ceased to cut his forelock ami attained his
majority. The youth had looked at Terakh
aoarohingly, and for a while remained silent. Then he said slowly, and with the
reverential accent duo to his father, who
had over him thc power of life and death :
"Ol, my father, is it not enough for thee
to make thc gods? When I see from what
thou makestlhem a voice within me forbids
me to interpret them to the people. Indeed,
I knew not how. 1 would be a shepherd,
ii'iconfused by many gods, or else I would
depart to a far country."
This remark iblereply was not braggadocio,
but tbo expression of a heroic conviction ;
and Terakh, being ft wise man, had given
his son his own way.
Now Terakh   turned   to  tbe completed
statue and  lo iked a', it significantly.    He
I was a man vain of nia skill.   He was the

Hank Welsh, who has followed whaling
for many years, was lucky enough to be
one of a crew beyond the gulf of the Holy

whale in distress, surrounded by three monster orens, or billers, which had him winded and badly wounded. The story is best
told by Welsh :

and was finally hove down, when the seas
carried away three of her life-boats and

the decks of almost everything moveable,
carrying away steam pipes, steering gear,
tearing tarpaulins olf some of the hatches,
and quantities of water got down iuto her
cargo, which consists of mnize, principally
in bulk. Her rudder post was carried away
and a portion of

washed tho vessel from stem to stern,
carrying tho men with it along the decks.
Some of thom feared their end bad come,

that they could hardly move. Captain
Bruhn had three ribs broken, the chief

CHAPTER XXIII
As he comes into the (iancing-room he
pauses at the door. Mr. Kitts is lounging
gracefully against one of the sides, talking
volubly, and making the most open and
disgraceful love (consido'ing ho doesn't
mean a word of it), to the maiden of bashful
fifteen. Trefusis, looking over his head,
sees Terry.
She is standing near the opposite doorway, that bads to the drawing-room, with
Laurence on one side ofher,andafat young
man, with something about his hair or his
collar that proclaims him a soldier, on the
other. Both young men are talking at once,
and Terry is looking embarrassed.
Trefusia goes straight to her. " Will
you dance this with me ?''
"Oh, a third claimant !"she cries, lifting
her orows. " Mr. Morland says I have
promised it to him, Larry says 1 gavo it to
him We aro trying to find a little light
somewhere."
" I am really euro, Miss O'More, you
gave it to me," says tbo fat young man.
" I'm euro too," saya Laurence, inflexibly.
" I wrote it down hero," saya Morland,
holding np hia eutt to the lamplight above
him, and struggling with the remarkable
ciphers upou it.
" What doea your cuff aay, Mr, Mora
land ?" asks Terry.
"It���er���its got a bit mixed." aaya
Morland, with disgust. "Can't make it
out."
"Then what's to bo done?" says Terry,
with pretty anxiety.
"I'll tell you," Bays Trefusia. Ho looka
at Laurence. "Whilst you and Morland
are making up your minds, Miss O'More
will dance this waltz with me."
Ho passes his arm round Terry's slender
waist: she sways towarda him; in an inatant
they are mingling with the other dancers.
"I told you you wcre masterful," saya
Terry, as they stop,
"Yes, I remember. I don't deny it
this ime." Something in hia tone strikes
her as different,���repressed, but fall of fire.
Thero iB a strange triumphant light iu his
eyes.
"I have ma le you mine for a moment,
in spite of "
"What!" The question drops from her
involuntarily. She isshockod by something
in his face she hardly understands.
"In spite  of you!"
Again his arm closes round her,and again,
half against her will, she is dancing down
tho long room within hia arms,���arms that
seem to clasp her closer. Coming to the
door where he had seen her with two young
disputants, the door that opens on the
drawing-room, he checks her, and,bringing
her to a full stop, loads her through the
drawing-room to the haloony beyond. It is
a balcony that runs along the whole side of
thc house, and Trefusis hurries hor on to
where a window opeus into a tiny boudoir,
Fanny's writing-room Within, tho soft
pink light of a lowered lamp can bo seen ;
out here tho moou, now at its height ia
shedding a tender brilliance over all the
garden.   A silence falls on thom.
"What a night 1" says Terry, at last.in a
low voice. A sudden Bense of fear has
fallen upon her. His manner surely has
changed, and *vhy does he not speak ? The
silence has become terrible, unendurable to
her, before sho breaks it. There was something determined, high-handed, a little
violent almost, in the air with whioh he
had taken heraway from Laurence, and
now	
" That is the second time wo have ever
danced together," says he, ignoring, aa
though hc has uot hoard it, her faint remark. " The first���do you remember
it!"
Again that compelling of her memory to
a past that (or him at least is dead. A
passion of anger against him, rising in her
heart, breaks all bounds. Sho turns on him,
hor lovely eyes Hushing fire into hia, while
her lips grow pale, and hor whole aweet
slender body is trembling viaibly,
"Remember! remember!" cries she,
throwing ont her hands. "Do you ever let
me forget? And why do you want mo to
remember ?   VA hat is it all to you ?"
"Something | and you remember." Ho
has taken a stop closer to her.
"Is that your revenge?" asks sho, in a
little strangled tone. " To compel rae to
keep alive the past. How will that benefit
you or me ? Say 1 behaved badly to you���
well, 1 admit it, but , hut "
" What?" he interrupts her, brusqely,
"You admit it, then? You acknowledge
that you did your best to break my heart?"
Hc has caught her hy both arms.
" Yours ! yours!" Her voice fails her.
Great tears riao in her lustrous eyes.
Sho makes a faint ineffectual struggle to
loosen his hold upon her, and thon gives in,
standing crushed, beaten, with drooping
head, on which tho unkindly moon is shedding too bright a ray. Ho can see tho
trouble of her soul.
It aooms to givo bin high courage.
" Even mino." He lets one of his hands
fall from hor arms, but, still holding h.er,
movos towards the room beyond.
'"Come inhere: I want to speak to you."
Reluctantly, involuntarily, ahe goes with
him, crossing the sill of tho window and
onloring the little warm and scented room
witb a strange Bonsc of newness,
Tho lights are burning very dimly, and
the perfume oi heliotrope and roses mingled
in swoeteniag the air. Ho turns to her as
they cross the threshold.
" Thero are toirs in your eyes," he says,
" For what ?"
��� He waits as if for an answer, but none
domes,
Only her pretty howl droops lower.
" Ah?" ho crios, "they aro for me. Y'ou
daro not deny it. You"���ho pauses, as if
his.breath is troubling him, and llien���
"you thought you did not lovo me in these
old days. But you did. You know it
uow?"
The triumph of his voice ceases.   Terry
presses her bauds tightly against her breast.
Anguish leaves her dumb.    And  what is
there to bo done,or aaid? The awful knowledge, loo, that tears aro gathering, hateful
betraying tears, beneath her lids, render hor
almost dcapTatn.
If only, mil. she could get nway before���
No lime is giveu her, however.
With a Strong and deliberate movement
Trefusis takes her into llis arms, and, hold,
ing hor lo him imoment, kisses her passionately,���not one only.
Pressing lie.' hands ug.iLsi his breast, u
shine liko two happy stara.
She atands trembling before him : what
does it all mean ? A sentence of death an
hour ago, and now a glimpse of heaven I
Who can explain liiis thing ?
Her eyes are fixed on his. She would
have withdrawn them if she could, but, as
if spellbound, they rest on his. Tears rise
and drown them, and hover on the brink of
her pretty lids, yet she oannot withdraw her
gaze.    Is it true ?   True ?
Oh, yes, it is true !
His lips are pressed against the tear-filled
eyes now, softiy, adoringly.
"Darling, darling eyes I" says he, in a
subdued but passionate whisper. Then���
"Terry, you love me I"
"Yes," faintly.   She is dinging to him.
"And yon are goiug to marry me this
time!" As he holds her clasped close to his
heart.a laugh escapes him,���a happy laugh.
All his old reserve seema to have descried
hiin. Truly she has taught bim many
things. She slips her arm round her neck.
A soft sweet sign escapes her lips.
"Oh, what a Ion;, Ion.; time you wcre
away I" says she brokenly.

Where two railroad tracks cross eaoh other
the law demands that certain precautions
shall be taken befcre trains cross over. In
all case.,, if the law is obeyed, all trains
come to a full stop before crossing. At the
crossing of the P. & ,J. road with tho W. k
L. there was a sharp grade ou tho latter
line. The grade be^an outside of Donnld-
aonville, three miles away, and continued
for another mile Bouth of the crossing,
which was out in the country, with only a
singlo farmhouse near by. When we were
running north or upgrade itwaaeanyenongh
to come tot standstill, but in running
south, especially with a wot track, the air-
! brakea had to be sot hard ami sometimes
let us slide clear over in defiance of thc law.
You could see a train on the other road tivo
miles away, but tbe two schedules were no
arranged that regular trains never sighted
eaoh other there unless one or thp other was
behind time.
On that April day when we left Cincinnati with iheeasternexpress the engineer wot
" Our Dave," as the boys used to call him.
They called him this because he wassagood-
hearted, whole-souled fellow���a favorite
with the officers aswotl as tbemen. In November ofthe previous year "Our Dave"
lost hia wife. Their only child was a boy
4 years old, and aftor a bit the father
brought lum down to live with his grandparents, who were farmers and live! it a
house near thc crossing, 'l'he child wonld
not only be well cared for then, but the
father could get sight of him every trip.
Wc always passed there by day-light, and
the boy always stood at the gate to swing
his hat and hurrah as the engine passed.
It was rare that he was not rewarded with
an orange, a p cksge of candy, or a toy ol
some sort. After the wifo had heen laid
away the boy was still more precious iu his
father's eyes, and many and many a time ho
used to tell me of his future plans and how
his littlo Tom figured in them. All our
train hands knew the boy, and now aad
then tho conductor gave a tip to the passengers, and a score of thom wonld be
looking for little Tom as we came to tht
crossing.
WARNING THERE WAS NONE.
Tbey say that persons are generally
warned of impending calamitios, but there
was no warning in this case. We reached
Donaldsonville sixteen minutes bobind time
and it ^as a rainy day and the rails very
slippery- but I had no special troublo with
the fire, and "Our Dave" had remarked
that old No. 88 was pulling her load without a complaint. Ha took from his box a
big orange, which was to be tosaed to litlle
Tom, and his faco had a happy look as hc
opened the throttle and climbed to his seat.
The law said wo must como to a full stop
2(10 feet from the crossing. As a matter of
fact we never did so. We'd slow down, see
that tlie coast was clear, and then drive
ahead al full speed. "Our Dave " meant to
do thc aame thing on this trip, as ho cal-
culattd to pick up our lost time in the next
thirty miles. When wo got, fairly started
on the down grade we seemed to fly, but I
was busy with the fire until we were within a milo of tho crossing. Then I looked up
to seo a special on tho P. k J. road,'coming
from the west. It was only a two-car train
having an opera ttoop aboard, I believe.
Davo sighted tho train at the same instant
and we both figured aliko. At the speed
we were going hia air-brakes could not stop
tho tram Bhort of tho crossing, and the
special had the right, ot way and would not
check her speed, Wc must have been making fifty miles an hour, hut Dave, had to
put ten on '.op of that to get hia train over
first. We had seven coaches, a baggago
car and a smoker, and as he gave her moro
steam tho whole train seemed to lift from
the track.
