from Nakusp to Liverpool is $23 a ton
but a much lower rate will be'given
when the size of the shipments will

,   ^        r w IN RIO DE JANEIRO.
The Amusements of the People in That
Southern City.
., There are two totally distinct seasons at
Rio, "when the town presents an altogether
different  appearance; the  summer, which
lasts from October to April, and the winter, from May to September.-   -In the summer, which is the autumn and winter in
Europe, when the sun pours down into the
narrow streetw,  Rio is   anything but an «
agreeable place.   The beat has driven away ]
the rich and  leisured classes,   the great
merchants, the diplomatic corps; in fact
all of any position or fancied position hasten to the suburbs on the breezy heights
overlooking the city, or to the little country towns in the  neighborhood, such as
Petropolis and Theresopolis, whilut ofhers
take refuge on the islands of the bay.    Ti .e
town becomes a perfect caldron; but this
does not prevent a great  excitement over
the Carnival,   which is an   institution to
which the Fluminenses. or river folk,  are
particularly devoted.    This relic of the old
heathen .. Saturnalia ia   fast disappearing
from  Europe;  and  now that, Italy is  a
united kingdom, it is no longer properly i

Large,ears are found on the heads of

At Rio, however,   Carnival-time is livelier than ever, and there  are  societies for
celebrating it   in   grand   style.     Shrove-
. Tuesday is kept in a most characteristic
manner, and is distinguished not only by
.  richness of the costumes and the originality
of the vehicles in tlie procession*?, but by
-**:e absurdity of the caricatures in  what
may justly be termed an open-air review of
the chief events of the preceding year.    In
the time  of the empire  the ministers of
Dom Pedro defrayed the expenses of the
Carnival, and though a'republic has  now
been established, the old customs are  kept
up,   and  the men of the   revolution are
spared no more than were their predecessors; moreover, like  them,  they are   the
iirst to laugh at the rediculous  caricatures
of themselves and their   actions in  these
witty exhibitions, in which full scope is
afforded to the imaginations of the .popular
poets of Rio. |

A proiecting under lip shows malignity and avarice.
A double chin ia invariably a sign of
a lover of the table.
Pointed noses generally belong to a
meddlesome people.
Blue eyes belong to people of an enthusiastic turn of mind.
Large eyes in a small face always betoken maliciousness.
Narrow, thin nostrils indicate small
lungs and low vitality.
Power of language is  indicated  by
fullness beneath the eyes.
A retreating chin is always bad; it

If the forehead be. shorter than the

Oblique eyes are unfavorable; they I

An oblique mouth is a bad sign; it
indicates a crooked character.    .
English-speaking people have the best
foreheads and eyebrows.
A steely blue eye is often the sign of a
merciless disposition.
Fine hair generally betokens native
good taste and intelligence.

Short, thick, curly hair is an indication of great natural strength.
Very tightly closed lips are usually
found in secretive characters.

Find out early what nature, designed

a real bent or deep love for a vocation;
and, on the'other hand, when you have
pursued any business for pome years,

FOREST  FIRES.
f. Year after year, British Columbia
s visited by forest fires, and millions
of dollars worth of valuable timber cle-
" stroyed. This year, the damage has
been'.unusually great, towns, as well
as the timber having been burned.
We do not feel the loss just now, but,
the time will come when all the wood
that is left will find a rea.dy market.
These fires are general! y started by
prospectors,   who are careless  with
•: their camp fires. In fact, many
a prospector will sometimes, deliberately sot' fire, and cause to be burnt
up the greater pa: t of the timber on
a mountain, so that he -can travel
more easily and have the ledges, if
any, .uncovered.    Finds   sire   often
, made in this wav, but not'enough to
compensate the country tor the loss oi'
so much valuable forest.    There is a
.'aw  against the setting out of lire,
but we have never heard oi5it being*
enforced.    It should be,   and to the
fullest extent.    Then   probably the j
fires would "stow less,   although  it 1
would seem almost impossible to carry ;
cut a law of this kind,  owing to the
difficulty of procuring evidence.
Our forests should be protected in j
some way. Trie question is of vital [
importance to the next generat on, J
and the Government should use all ]
tlie means in their power to decrease,
the annual conflagrations that sweeu
over our fair Province,
superstitution and fervor, in preference to one of cold, practical sense in
which imagination and fear are not
recognized.
Canada, with" one or two exceptions
has been free from that abominable
institution, known as a COMIQUE.
It is well that such is the case, and
the Government should see that no
license is ever granted again in this
Province for such dives. Real estate
speculators are endeavoring to establish one in New Denver, and lots have
been • donated for that purpose, and
work is expected to commence on the
building immediately. If the scheme
is cariied out successfully it will probably create a third faction in the
town, and be the means of a few
cheap structures going np in.the immediate vicinity of the joint. It will
have a tendency to drive away any
respectable people who might wish
to settle in the town, as few men care
to bring their wives and children to
a town where the main object of
some of the leading men is to create
an institutibn that will paiider to the
animal nature of men, without any
regard to its effect upon their- morals,
intellect and bank account.
People in Spokane are in the habit
of bringing letters to every train that
leaves the city for this Province.
No mail being made up on the train
they cannot send their mail matter
by the crew, as American stamps
are used. By putting on Canadian
stamps the difficulty could be obviated. In Nakusp .it is the custom to
keep American stamps on hand and
post Spokane letters on the boaf. Not;
because we are averse to doing business with our own postoffice, nor have
the time to catch tho mail, but,'owing
to tlie regulations in this district, a
saving of three or four days can be
effected, by -posting letters in this
way
Captain Adams, of ^Montreal, was
in Nakusp last week. The Caj tain
is President ol' tlie Secular Union of
Canada, and will never get bald on

The exodus from Washington, Idaho and other States to Alberta still
continues. Nearly every up river
boat carries some passengers bound
for a country, that is not disturbed by
anarchy, and mob rule,-as the United
iias been during the past year.
Large r umbers of Japs are leaving
America for Japan, to assist their
1 omein the war against .China. Their
dep.-i:tire will not*cause any grief
and if the Chinese would follow suit,
it would please us much more. They
are quiet and docile, but as they live
on less than it takes to keep a white
mans dog, and never have there.
motost. idea of becoming assimilated
'with..,this.■.country,, the fewer we
have with us the bettor.: They are
a loV of yellow, .human leeches ex-
tracting'.-the wealth, of America, to
enrich: the Flowerv. Kingdom, and
in doing so hay.-l driven many a poor
■girl, from the means of making an
honorable living—especially in the
colden state of California.
Miners, as a general rule are more
intelligent and better men than those
who follow less hazardous occupations.
They are men of nerve, pluck and
muscle, and if they were not, they
could not command the wages they do
—the best in Canada. With their
money they are free, and some of
them never go to prayer meetings.
They like fun, but they want their
own way. They do not like people,
for the sake of booming a town and
selling real estate, to build a trap, as
it were for them, in which they could
get rid of their money for the benefit
of those who only laugh at them
when they are broke.
The miner is a good fellow, but he
does not like to be considered a fool,
and a man who patronizes a Comique
to any extent is in that category.
Therefore, a great many people in
New Denver must think him a fool.
We would advise the miners to give
that class of people the cold shake: It
might teach thorn sDine sense, an
article they are short of at present.

The merchants and manufacturers
of Vancouver and Victoria are about
as slow and conservative, in their
business methods, as the Mexicans.
They have goods to sell, no doubt,
but they are losing trade daily in the
up country, because they are too penurious or careless to properly advertise their wares.'
Tn this period of the worlds history,
a stinted use of printers ink is a sign
of commercial decay... Business men
who do "not use it freely, generally
have cobwebs on the brain, and deserve to be relegated to the dark
shades of commercial oblivion and
ruin.

The, reduction of the duty on opium

Messrs. Stege & Teasdalo, the pro
prutors of one of the best hotels in
New Denver, were here on Friday.
They are pleasant and popular young
men, and report business picking up
in their line.
We thought there were two suns
on duty last Friday, but the illumination was caused by Jerry Nagle
being in town. Since the Montreal
surgeon saved his leg, Jerry is the
happiest man we have seen in a decade. He has gone into the Slocan
to spend a short time, and took an
annual paid-up interest in this paper
before he departed,
Ricardo Fras«r, who has typed on
nearly every journal in the Kootenay
defunct and otherwise, passed on to
Denver, Monday. He was accompanied by a thin, black and very
sycopanorius dog. The canine had
a pesticated and kicked appearance
probably produced by living on Kaslo
dingbats, or Nelson Tribune editorials. Dick says he is a setter, and
will be fed on pi until he is in a normal condition. Ricardo took the parlor car on the Nakusp limited express
for Rosebery, and when last seen he
was trying with one hand to keep
the dog from eating the passengers,
while he waved a bandana farewell
with the other, to a vision of petti-
coated loveliness on the promenade
deck of the Lytton.

Tho mofjfc HirilririL;' and poetical exng-
geratious of nature's beauties greet you,
the silver rtav/n and tho golden twilight;
the crescent moon vdtfi her melancholy
light; the solitude of t.lie forest and the
loneliness-of the sea; the outline of unseen faces iviiiob «oem familiar and. which
you feel that you know, although you
may not have ever met them. There i&
something in their prcsenej which brings
messages of peace and hope. They restore faith in the spiritual conception of
nature .which was-whispered to you so
softly. "With closed e}Tes these gentle
messengers may be seen only, as-though
they weir? dwellers from that imseeD
world which the Swedish Mystic pronounced the only real world.
Nature may be so grand when viewed
with closed eyes. How magnificent are
the trees through the leaves of which
are shifted-beams of silver light; how
superb the motionless pool which reflects
so plainly every outline! It is nature's
mirror and is held up before much.that
is charming—the waving branch, the
dainty vine., the snow-white cloud, the
birds, the graceful squirrel. Then out
of the wondrous recesses & palace of art
arises. Habitations come quickly; to you
when your eyes are closed. Men must
always build- and so the magnificent
structure is erected, not story by story,
biit all in a moment and you are the
lordly possessor. of this abode, where
peace reigns and the human may approach so near to the divine heart of
nature itself; where the near relationship is felt of the inanimate to the
animate. There one would not crush a
flower needlessly.
With closed eyes the world is no longer small. It is surrounded by all space.
It is filled with the fragrance of flowers
more beautiful than have- ever grown;
with music sweeter than has ever been
played and figures more charming even
than, any that are. The secrets which
are whispered in your ear are the secrets
of the universe; the music is the harmony of time and the tale that is told is
the story of the fruition of, all things;
the strange life development; forms
m most fanciful aspect; soul, bright
and shining, advancing in the courses
prescribed in the attainment of the end.
