Karlv «r the summer a partv of
four left Nakusp to prospect in tlie
mountains west of the Arrow lakes,
Tlie party consisted of, Billy Lynch,
H. W. Bucke, B. H. Lee and Dave
Bremner,. At the Hot Springs, they
crossed the'Arrow lake, and struck
mto a country apparently new to the
world. They found the topography
very rough, crossing the snow lands
and glacierstwice, going in a zigzag
course, west and south. . In the earlv
oart of the trip several deer and a
goat were killed. Bremner also shot
a grizzly weighing 400" pounds.
While the fresh meat lasted they had
plenty to eat, but game growing
scarce B; ember and Bucke wen\
back for provisions. When.they returned Lynch and Lee were nearly
starved having eaten nearly everything in sight. Lynch and Bucke
t'icn went back for more supplies intending to get back,in 12 days,, but
it took them a month.
No   game   or anything    eatable
could be found,  and pretty soon Lee
and Bremner  had, nothing left but
salt, having lived foi; several days on
a little flour and hot water.   Their
partners not returning when expected they started to retrace   their steps
to Arrow, lake,, Lee being.terribly
used up..   Finding a deer hide they
had thrown away on the in trip they
soon cut it up   and made soup out of
it.   Bremners' dog had strayed away
or else they would have eaten him.
Getting a little nearer the lake,
they found some bones  of the bear
killed some weeks previous.    These
were gathered up, boiled and all the
nutriment extracted.    Lee   became
so exhausted that he could not" carry
his rifle, and Bremner had to pack
everything.    He was endeavoring to
get Lee to a point where he had noticed some nettles,   thinking that by
boiling them Lee could sustain life
until he made an effort to procure
assistance.   When near the nettles
they found Lynch and Bucke returning with provisions.   It is needless to
say how much they appreciated the
first square meal of many   weeks.
Lee was terribly exhausted, and it
was with great difficulty that he got
to the Hot Springs, where he now is,
swollen from head to foot, and not
able to walk.    Bremner is none the
worse for his rough experience, and
is gaining flesh at the rate of three
pounds a day.   He went on to  the
Slocan   yesterday.   No   forest fires

It would seem that the excitement
caused by the discovery of gold on
Cariboo creek, would be the means
of a rich quartz region being opened
up in that section. On the- 15th of
August, Chas. Vader, acting on a
suggestion from Nelson Deniers, left
his placer ground and proceeded up
Mineral creek to prospect for quartz.
When three miles away from Cariboo ere k, and about six miles ih a
direct line from the Columbia river,
he ran a cross.a stringer of solid mineral m a granite, slate and porphyry
formation! Tracing it up he discovered a ledge of quartz, eight feet wide
and traceable for 300 feet on the sur-
face. He staked a claim and called
it the Orpheno, an assay from it giving returns ot $175 in gold and six
ounces in silver;
Nine claims in all  have been located in the vicinity of the Orpheno,
one each by Harry Arnold and A
Taissier, and six by Messrs McLeod,
Hopkins and Arquette for themselves
and , the Nakusp parties who grub-,
staked them.    The ledges are very
hard to find owing to the prevalence
of "gravel and earth on the surface ot
the rock. .
200 miles to Nelson, lawyers are employed, and all the costly and dilatory nrocccdings under a committal

General complaint is made of the
vagaries and incompetence of   the
justices at New Denver, Messrs. Bogle and Wilson.    We have hot sooner called attention to this matter ..out
of respect for the-bench and lest the
information that reached us from time
to time might in some respects be incorrect.    A case in the Speedy Trials
Court   here before '. Judge   Spinks,
would seenLto indicate that the complaints made are not wholly without
foundation.   The justices named committed one  of the most-respectable
business men in New Denver for trial
on a charge of stealing bricks,  the
affair arising,   we understand out of
a partnership dispute.    Judge Spinks
on-reading the depositions and ascertaining that they contained all the
evidence, dismissed the case   there
and then.    We hear it  said oh., the
street that no justice with a ..grain of
common sense would have even taken
an information in the case,  yet the
parties and four witnesses are brought

".iroumo uausea oy a semicolon.
The  substitution  of a semicolon for
«a comma in an act which became a law
in 1889 has caused.a lot of trouble for
. the   surface iv.ilro.uls   and   apparently
'• makes necessary tlie passing of a healing
act by the present Legislature. The act,
which relates.to railroad crossings, is as
"No' electric, cable,  or horse railroad
shall   hereafter  be   constructed  across
■'the tracks of a steam' railroad at grade;
nor shall any steam railroad cross any
such electric, cable, or horse i;ailroad at
grade, except upon amplication and approval by the Railroad' Commissioners.'"
The preceding was approved,  semicolon and all, June 11, ISSy, and became a
•law.    The result  is that while  steam
-roads can  cross  surface lines  at will,
wkh the   permission   of   the   Railroad
Commissioners, street and electric road?
are barred  from crossing  steam  road'-

earner's 3Eonl_ey-Tallc Experiment.
Prof. Garner has written a letter to
his brother in Australia in which he declares that he has "succeeded beyond his
wildest anticipations" with monkey-talk
'in Africa. He says: "I am safe on the
coast, just reeking with quinine, the
-proud possessor of a chimpanzee that can
my 'Tenakoe Pakeha,' which is, you
know, the Maori for 'Good day stranger';
a gorilla that knows about twenty words
of Fijian; and a female ourang-outang
that has picked up 'Tonner und blitzen,
from my German valet, and'has, judging from, her actions, quite fallen in
Jove with him. I have also got written
down, which is more important, nearly
200,monkey words. Here are a few, spelt
phonetically: 'Achru,' meaning sun, fire,
warmth, etc.; 'kukcha/ meaning water,
rain, cold, and apparently anything disagreeable; 'goshku,' meaning food, the
act of eating. You will see from this
that it is'a very primitive language;
there are, perhaps, not more than twenty
or thirty words in it that I have not already got, so that my task is now practically completed." When his battery,
phonograph, and revolving mirror began to work, he says that the "glitter
of the mirror soon, attracted a host of
chattering monkeys. I watched them
for an hour ' and then cautiously approached. They disappeared like magic
when they saw me—all but one, a chimpanzee. When I got close to it I found
that it took no notice of me; but stood
as If transfixed, with widely opened eyes
and dilated pupils,,gazing at the mirror.
There was a slight tremulous motion in
the limbs and a spasmodic twitching of
the ears. I could hardly believe it. The
amimal was hypnotized. It was making a guttural sound like 'achru.' When
I subsequently listened to the, 'gram,' I
found that a similar sound was frequently recorded thereon amid what
was then to me an unintelligible jumble
of monkey chatter. I put the monkey
in a bamboo cage, and on examining
him half an hour afterwards found him
still under the" hypnotic influence. , I
revived him with a good ""strong sniff of
ammonia and held a lighted taper before his eyes, ' He was quite tractable,
and said "achru' and a few more tests
satisfied me' that this word embodied
the idea of heat, light, warmth and
brightness. Other words followed, and
it was wonderful to take note of his
awakening: intelligence."

In the form of. the foot the sexes dLfer
as Kjui'ii or _v_n jiiojv than in that ofthe
■.r.d.    A U'om.iu'b foot is  usually ?iar

"t.j-* \v:Ji h_ co..tiderah.y stronger in the
jin :le .-iii-i more poweriY.l in tne formation of th-i toes, ospe.aaliv of the ball of

M,-oug, rirai. wide foot many of us experience' no sensaiiwa of surprise at find-
i.igher "'rirong minded": when a man
iripd along on a deJicate little foot people
i.iatihcLiveiy believe him to he .lacking
i-i pow_ra:id often put him down as^ef-
iemihate. If instead of the cramping
imprisonment of boots and shoes the
foot from infancy were allowed a free
arid natural development it is questioned
by tlie Boston Herald whether under
such conditions it might not be rendered'capable of performing other functions besides those of locomotion and
sustaining the -weight of the body.'
Certain lit least ic is that some unlucky
mortals born wiihont arms have managed to use a knife, fork, spoon, pen,
paint brush and even a violin bow. That
tno right foot is, like the right hand,
ordiuariiy more mobile and at the .same
time stronger than the left might be attributed to the more frequent exertion
of this side were it not that the peculiarity is said to extend itself even to the
constitution,-and the left extremities are
asserted to be more liable to disease than
the r
s-:ort, nervous, steps.    In joy
the walk is lively, for lightness, grace,

.Ninety-Seven Miles an Hour.
This country can now lay claim to hav
ing broken the record in railway speed.
A nnle has been made in thirty-seven
seconds and two miles in seventy-five
seconds, wnile drawing a regular train
of four cars on a descending grade of
thirty-two feet to the mile. This corresponds to a speed of about ninety-seven
iniles an hour and leaves a very small
ma-gin beyond which to attain the 100
miles an hour speed, which has heretofore been regarded,as impossible on a
steam railroad. In the reports of this
wonderful performance it is stated that
there was no 'preparation made tor the
test, and that k a more unfavorable time
could not have been - chosen, as the
rain poured in torrents during the
day and 011137 ceased half an hour before
the time scheduled to leave Philadelphia." This statement is now questioned and one writer holds that instead of
being an unfavorable time for such a
test of speed it yvas a most propitious
opportunity. The rain wet the rails and
the lubricating qualities of water acted
to greatly reduce the rolling friction of
the wheels upon them. The reduction
of this friction was the same as an addition of power in the locomotive, and the
phenomenal speed obtained under these
conditions suggest to the Courier-Journal some thoughts concerning this form

stirrup; and, unless
left-handed, no boy in his play hop?
naturally on his left foot. To the atten
tive eye none of the ordinary gestures
or movements betrays peculiarities of
individual character more plainly than
the gait—the sailor's rolling, the soldier's
stiff, the countryman's jolting gait are
immediately recognized. Slow steps,
whether long or short, suggest a gentle
or reflective sort of mind, as the case
may be, while, on the contrary, quick
steps seem to
energy.    Reflec
quent pauses and walking to and fro.
backward and forward; the direction of
the steps, wavering and following every-
changing impulse of the mind, inevitably betrays uncertainty,, hesitation and
indecision. The oroud step is slow and
measured, the toes are conspicuously
turned out, tho leg is straightened. In
vanity the toes are rather more gracefully turned, the strides a little shorter,
and there is very often an affectation
of modesty. Tiptoe walking symbolizes
surprise, curiosity, discretion or mystery.
Obstinate people, who, in an argument,
rely more on muscularity than on intellectual power, rest the feet flat
and firm on the ground and sta.nd with
•the legs firmly planted and far apart.
Turned-in toes are of ten found with unoccupied, absent-minded persons. The
toes pointed and dragged on the ground
with slow, measured step, give a pompous appearance. Perplexity occasions
irregular steps and abrupt movements.
The prudent walk is measured and regular/entirely free from hurry, agitation
or precipitation. The miser's walk is
represented as stooping, noiseless, with
double that at twenty-five miles an hour
and at- sixty miles an hour it has again
doubled, being respectively seven, thirteen and twenty-five pounds per ton. It
is, at all events, certain that any experiments having in view the adoption of a
higher average speed on railroads must
be" accompanied by a proportionate advance in svstem and safetv aDuliances

Tlie mule has played an important
part iu the development of the Kootenay country, but no one seems to
give him any credit for it. The iron
horse is driving him out, but the fact
remains, that he was here first..
jlany a load has he packed over the
steep trails of the Nakusp-Slocan district and never said a word. He was
lazy and slow, but got there just the
same, and historians should'not leave
out the mule when writing about
tlie pioneers. Considering that few
of them are Canadians they have done
well in South Kootenay. The great
Opposition .party admire kicking propensities even' in the down-trodden
and sullen mule.

imprecates v no   longer,     deep and |

of The-Canadian-Editor, subdued, by
a stronger- mind. 'Hevstays ■ in   the

Editor and wants his rarer back.
-The Scotch Editor is willing, but he
wants money, hard, cold money.
The Canadian Editor has none in Ins
jeans, so he goes the gang, and they
' l ut up a note. ' The Scotch Editor
takes it to the bank. No go. Not
strong enough on" the back. The
Canadian Editor swears vengeance
and disasppear.s .
Down the steep trail, towards a
little mining camp, nestled at the
■ foot of many rich mountains, plods a
man. of gigantic frame, and eleven
children. He is weary and sad, for
he has hunted a long time for a, place
in which to lay his type and print/a
paper that would change the climate.
The citizens of the small bacon fed
"camp take to him kindly, and he
soon spreads his little sheet to the
lour corners of the' earth, and the.
eleven received bread. Then the
panic comes. Silver goes down and
many a proud head is drooping. Not
so the Big Editor. lie manfully sticks
to the little camp, and prints cheering
words to brace up the boys who.-first
made the town, while in aiittle vil
lage, across the line, eleven children
wonder why daddy stays away so
One evening1, some hours after the
sun had retired for the night, The
Canadian Editor returns to the town
ot chappies, a triumphant look in his'
eye, and a bran new press in the car.
The Scotch Editor sees it and shivers
in his brogans. He knows he is very
clever, but The Canadian Editor has
the cinch, and the future grows dark
and ominous.
There is great rejoicing amongst
the gang. A new paper is out, at a
price so low that everyone knows it
is a drive at The Scotch Editor. It
riles his Saxon blood and he mutters
deeo imprecations, but that is all.
He stops at the imprecations, and the
streets of chappie town do not run.red
with editorial gore. An English Editor, aristocratic and capitalistic,
di\]A cars on tic scene, and The Scotch

The Big Editor still: rustles" for the
The Canadian Editor chuckles with
joy. He has tamed Th . Scotch Editor. and thinks he will finally-own
the earth. The gang is called, tor

Government must give place to them
and no English need apply. It is.
Canada.for the Canucks, and hell for
the rest of the people. In a town not
far. from Chappyville, noted for its
cylclonic propensities, an American
Editor vainly strives to enlighten the
world and pay his bills.. He is approached with money, and his rag be
comes the property of the gang.
Tlie Canadian Editor is strictly in it
but the citizens of tlie cyclone city
do;not like the autocratic verbosity
ofthe rag, and it playsa losing game
to the sour end. Tlie people rejoice
when it dies, and trunk the last curse
has been lifted from their persecuted
On a flat car,. covered by the blue
sky, sits an old and battered press,
around which cluster many a mem
ory, and chunk of dirt. It has a melancholy and sorrowful appearance,
as though it was going to its own
funeral. Turning in its bed, it said
in a wailing tone. "What is the
world coming to ? Here I am battered and* old, a survivor, of fire and
flood, going into a little side-tracked
mining camp to have my last days
worn out printing editorials too heavy
for me to stand, in order that the
gang who own me may some day
sell a lot. And, then I may have to
print a Comique advertisment, or the
obituary of the other paper, and
just think, what would become of

succeed in squeezing out the little
sheet, that has told the joys and woes
