ination of tbe site of the proposed smelter, near No. 106 biidge.
The party spent the afternoon in looking over the ground, and eeemed to be
favorably impreieed with tho euitability
of the location. Mr. Kiddie informed a
representative of Tho Leader that the
contract for the aciial tramway from
the Tyee mine! to t-omenos stat'on
would be let thie week.
The advauce guard of the emelter
bulldera would be hire, belaid, in about
two weeka to begin operation! by clearing the eite; and from that time work
would be puahed ai last ai poielble. The
expectation is that the emelter will be
able to begin the actual work of smelt-
ing before the end of August. To do
thia it will be necessary to prosecute the
work ol building with considerable

Quite a large audience filled the Free
byterian church on Thursday evening
on tbo occasion of tbe concert given by
the little Missel Dobie of Nanalmo.
The programme followed wae almoit ths
eame aa tbat pveented in Nanaimo,
and it was very much ecj.yed by the
audience here.
Although none of the pieces were lerl-
oui technical character, there wae enough
given to prove that Ihe two children are
more than ordinarily gifted with muiical ability. The Chopin polonaise in
the eecoud part of the programme, wa,
a Fairly good test of the elder eiiter'B power!, and ebe acquitted herself well, Tbe
"Bees' wedding," Mendelssohn, and the
Vilie Brillant, Durand, alto enabled
the little artiste to ihow that ihe pon
esses a considerable share of sympathetic Intelligence in interpretation, a.

The little tot, the younger litter,

ain il especially good, bnt in h.r treatment ol the famous intermezzo from tbe

Messrs. Mills Brothers' Vauabla
Bull Terrier Stolen.
Very early on Thursday morning Mn.
Lse, who bae been nursing Mn. Macdonald, High Street, happened to look
out ot the window facing into the yard
behind the butcher ehop of Meiiri Mills
Brother!, when ebe saw a man walking
about the yard in a meaner that aroused
her suspicions. She watched him
cloiely, and he apparently eeeing that
he was observed, walked along Ihe eide
ol the building and stood lor a while
looking Into High Street,
Next time Mn. Lse law the man he
wai leading Messrs. Mills' bull terrier,
which had bnn chained up in the y.rd,
He had it by the chain and wai patting
it on the head, as he itood in front ol

lut that hae been leen ol Ihe animal or

one and tbe ownere leel tbe ion keenly.

Nanalmo Sends Another Delegation
to the Capital.
Mesin. Ed. Quennell, J. H. Cocking,
and George L. Scbetky, of the Nanalma
BoardofTr.de, went down to Victoria
on Thursday morning to interview the
Government regarding the proposed Alberni railway, and to preee Nanaimo'!
claim! with all necessary vigor.
In tbe coruie of a abort interview witb
Messrs. Cocking and Scbetky, on tba
nation platform on Thunday morning,
a representative ol The Leader wai informed that the people of Nanaimo had
learned with considerable satisfaction
that there wai a growing opinion in
Ladyimith that tbii place ihould join
handi witb Nanaimo io the endeavour
to bring the railway to th. central eait
cuaitof the blind.
Mr. Cocking pointed ont that by
working together tbe two placee could
gain lar more for their own beet intereiti
than by pulling in oppoiite direction!.
He laid that II tbe railway came to the
coast anywhere south of Ladyimllh il
would be of u] me to tbii town or Naniimo. Wbereas if It came out north
of Ladyimith thie cimp would be bound
to benefit equally witb Nanaimo. Ha
earneetly hoped thit the people of
Ladyemith would at leaet think tb.
matter over, end act according to their
belt judgment, and not allow prejudiced
penoni to lead tbem.
Mr, Scbetky epoke in a somewhat
similar strain, and aaid that Nanaimo
wat perfectly willing to join bandi with
Ladysmith in thil matter, which, ••
anyone could lee who give the matter
any thought, wai bound to be ol mutual
benefit to both towni.
Tho Leader man inggeited tbat ar-
rr.ng.metiU ehould be mad. Ior both
gentlemen to meet th. citiism ot Ladyimith in public meeting here, whin tn.y
oould lay tbeir viewi before th. people.
II nothing cm. ol the muting, bo harm
would be done, .nd tb. two gentlemen
could leel eure at .ny rate, of having a
courteoua and patient bearing. Tbey
■aid they would think the matter over.

Readers of The Leader would be put

bittered-looking sheet In plice ol tbe
neatly-printed paper usually lent to the
handi ol The Leader's hundred! ol lead-
era on tbrei continents. Unfortunately
just after the big Hoe press Darted on
Tuesday afternoon, acattlng underneath
the bed-plate broke, and ai there waa no
way ol repairing it In time for that lime,
the itaff had to turn to the old Hind-
by, the Waihington hand pren, and
work oil The Leader by ibeer muscle
and grit. Hence the mediaeval appear
ance of the paper. It wai almost in all night job. Ai our facetious

Thli week another deputation ol Nanaimo'! leading citizeni waited upon the
authoritiei at Victoria, and itrongly
prened tbe claims of their city. Tbii is
commendable ipirit, and no matter
whit tbe people of Ladyimith may
think of the Nanaimo people'e argument!, they cannot withhold their admiration of Nanaimo's enterpriee. Al
with the individual 10 with the town,
the nation—it il only pereevcring action,

After leaving college I determined to
take n course nt one ot the Cioruinu
universities, I chose Heidelberg, which
iu those days wns tlio host Ictiown, nnd
took a three yours' course. I Joined
one of tho corps and lu time bceumo
Involved ln several student duels.
When I left Heidelberg, where I had
taken more Interest In tho small sword
thnn ray studies, 1 stopped in Paris before returning to America, with a view
to seeing some Frcuch fencing. One
evening a party of us visited the celebrated school of M. Ilrissoii. While wo
were watching the pupils fence n man
entered and after looking ou for awhile
proposed to take the foils with the
principal. Brlsson consented and wits
astonished, as we all were, nt the stranger's skill. After disarming his adversary bo took up a piece of chalk, rubbed It on the foil, and, calling to Brls-
eoii to place himself on gunrd, made
one brilllnnt stroke after nnother and
nt last left a chalk mark of a figure 8
on the fencing master's walsteont directly over tbo heart.
"Victor Morrel!" exclaimed several
who   wero  present  with   the   sumo
"Who Is Victor Morrel?" I nsked.
"Tho   most   noted   swordsman   In
"A duelist?"
"No; singularly enough, he has not
tho courage to light a duel."
"What Is his occupation?"
My informant, n Frenchman, shrugged bis shoulders nfter tho French
fashion nnd walked out of tho school
without replying to my question. Brls-
son nt once doffed his wire mask nnd
put up Ids foil. In doing so ho turned
his back upon his former nntngonhrt
nnd took care to keep It turned till
Morrol hnd left the nendeiny. Evidently tho man who hnd shown his skill
was not n favorite with hlin or, for tho
matter of that, wiih nny one present.
Tho Frenchmen nil departed, leaving
the room to our party. Morrel also departed, nnd ns ho passed me I noticed
the must repulsive face I had over seen
on a man. I did not wonder at the ills,
favor In which he was held. I should
have been afraid to pass him In a lonely rond had be cause to prick me In tho
Three years later, In company with
my friend Walter Douglas, I again visited Europe, sailing from New York to
Cherbourg and going from there to
Meutone, a winter resort in tho south
of France. Ono evening Douglas went
to walk with a little French girl who
had captivated him by her smart appearance. Ho failed to return to tho
hotel, and toward morning, becoming
anxious for his safely, 1 went to search
for him. I found him lying In his blood
in the gardens stabbed through tho
heart His coat had been cut by Iho
point of a knife or sword so ns to make
what looked like tho letter S. Tho
blado hnd entered tho heart nt tho
polut where tho tracing ceased.
Iu agony at the murder of my friend,
I called a gendarme, and tho body wns
removed. I mndo every effort to And
tbe murderer, but without success. The
mysterious letter S cut In his coat
would not bo dropped from my mind.
It seemed to partly awaken some memory. At last I remembered Morrel nnd
the figure 8 be hnd chalked on tho
waistcoat of M. Brlssou. Then It occurred to me that tbo letter S was an
Incomplete figure 8.
Golug nt once to the police office, I
requested them to arrest tbo little
French girl whom Douglas bad been
Willi on tbe night of his murder, nud
when she arrived at tbo police ofllco 1
questioned her myself. She came lu
charge of a gendarme, frightened nud
weeping, but, I fancied, ou ber guard.
"Havo you a lover?" I asked.
"No, rn'ileu."
"Do you know any one expert with
tbo sword?"
"No, m*sleu."
Sho preserved her equanimity, but I
bow that tho question startled ber.
"Did yon ever ice a man cut or mark
tbo  flguro 8  upon an adversary's
She turned pale and did not reply.
"Where is Victor Morrel ?"
Tbls broke her down. "I had nothing
to do with It," sho cried. "Ho was Jealous of—the American.  Do not bring
mo to tho guillotine, I beseech you."
I turned to tbe prefect of police.
"Tbo case is ln your hands," I said.
"Find Victor Morrel."
"Where Is M. Morrel?" be asked of
tbe girl.
"Ob, I do not knowl Sporo mcl"
"Tnko her away," said tbo olllccr to
.tbe gendarme. "Sho will finish her career on tho guillotine."
This was too much for her fidelity to
her lover. "I do not know whero ho
li," she said. "Yesterday ho was in
Tbat evening Morrel was arrested In
Marseilles nnd brought to Mentouo for
trial. He put on n bold front, feeling
mro that there wero no witnesses of
tbe murder,
"M, Morrel," asked tbo prosecuting
attorney, "why woro you so foolhardy
ns to leave tlie figure S on tbo henrt of
tbo man you killed?"
"I did not," tbo prisoner exclaimed,
"It looked llko the letter, S, bnt bad
yon completed lt you would havo mado

Tho prosecutor bold np tbo murdered
. man's coat, on which had becu cut the
letter's. The prisoner fell back, clutching his hair nnd moaning:
"I must bnvo been drunk."
It appeared later that be hnd been
drinking heavily and was unconscious
of cutting tbe mark he was accustomed to leave on thoso bo worsted In
fencing, He was convicted, and before
I left France he was taken out nt Jail

'   loan Boundary Line.
"Somo peculiar conditions prevail at
tho twin cities of Nogales, Mexico,
and Nogales, Ariz.," said tbo Dotroltcr,
who recently returned from a visit to
Mexico. "Tho International boundary
Hue ls formed hy a street that divides
the two towns, and tbe boundary
stakes aVo set out with a very nice
regard for technicalities. There is a
saloon there which has more than a
local reputation, und tho proprietor Is
coriniiily an enterprising Individual.
His saloon Is located on the street dividing tho two counties nnd at a point
whore the dividing lino is not clearly
dellncd. Tho patron' of this saloon
buys his drink In America, and, stepping ncross tho ball, be buys bis cigar
In Mexico. In tills way the proprietor
nvolds the duty on imported cigars
and can provide his customers with
tho- best make nt lower prices than
most of his competitors,
"They tell an amusing story about an
American who Imbibed too much fighting whisky at this saloon.   Whon he
arrived at a certain stage, he allowed
his prejudices to get the better of him,
; and, standing near the boundary lino
' of his own country, ho henped nnntho-
mas and hurled defiances at the people
across tho border.   A couple of Mexl-
! can officers stood across the street nl-
' most within reach of tho pugnnclous
American, hoping that he would stroll
j across Into Mexico.   He did get over
there after awhile, although tbo trip
, was wholly un premeditated.   During
n harangue ngnlnst Mexican institu- j
I tions in general nnd tho police In pnr-
! tlctilar ho happened to lurch too fur
- over to starboard and fell Into Mexico.
. The alert cops promptly grabbed him,
' and, though ho didn't get a chance to
{ take In tho Bights, ho paid quite an extended visit to the country bo had so
eloquently   maligned."

That lt ls possible to have too good ,
an appetite seems to bo ono of the i
I morals of u story told by a friend to
the Washington correspondent of the
Cleveland Plain Dealer.
"I am vory fond of roasted ears of
corn," said be, "and I eat it whenever I j
can get it Some time ago, while I wns
ln a restaurant In Texas, the waiter j
put a plateful on tho table, and I just;
helped myself.
"Wben I had consumed the third, l!
noticed that a man across the tnble'
was eying me most curiously. I looked
at blm and told hlui that I considered
roasted corn ono of tho most nutritious
and palatable things a man could cat.
Then I helped myself to a fourth ear
and devoured It with relish.
"When I reached my hand into the
dish for tho IIfill, the fellow across tho
tablo couldn't stand lt any longer.

you could save about a dollar and n
quarter a day If you was to board at a
j livery stable!'"
Christening In  Scotland Wn. Conduced  Under Difficulties.
In wide nnd sparsely populated highland districts of Scotland lt not Infrequently happens that a parent Is obliged to walk n distance of live or alx
miles with an infant for baptism.
It Is related of n minister of tbe
north that ho agreed to accommodate
n parishioner thus situated by meeting him nt a stream midway between
the parents' bouse nnd tho maase and
there baptizing tho child at tho running water.
It so happened that by the time tho
parties camo to opposite sldos of tho
bourn heavy rains had swollen lt Into
a rapid torrent, so thnt neither party
could approach tho other.
Unwilling to turn back with tbo
"bairn" unbuptlzcd, tho farmer proposed that tho minister should splash
water across. Accordingly the minister
stepped down to tho stream and endeavored to throw hnndfuls.of wnter
on tho farmer's baby.
"Ha'o yo got ony o' thnt?" ho cried
at each successive splash.
"Do'll a spnlrge," was the reply.
At last a few of tho splashes were
communicated to the Infant's face,
nnd the ceremony was thou concluded
ln tho usual form.
Before retiring to their respective
homes the farmer produced a bottlo of
whisky, crying across, "As I cuuna
offer ye n glass owro tho held o* this,
here's tho bottle—kepp!" And be threw
It across tho stream.
The bottlo was caught, lt Is related,
with a precision that botobencd on tho
part ef his reverence, if not consldera-
Ole practice, at least considerable dexterity.- .t

Dos. and Humor.
Mr. Cecil Aldln, an authority, gives lt
ns his opinion tbat dogs as a rule are
dovold of conscious humor. "The
clown dog ln a troupe ot performing
dogs, for Instance, Is not really funny
wben be burlesques the performances
of other dogs, but he seems to be funny to tbe spectators. I am afraid that
the people who credit dogs with being
Intentionally funny are deceiving themselves. A. dog likes f un-a good romp
and game witb children—but his sense
of humor has not been developed, and
It ls not subtle." A dog's best sense
at humor, Mr, Aldln thinks, Is when
he ls being tickled. "Ho opens his
mouth, then screws hi. face Into what
people ore pleased to call a laugh."
