G. M. Spencer has prospected ''considerable this-summer in the vicinity
of town. A short time ago he found
some rich float on the bank of Jvoos-
kenais creek, and. tracing it up he
found a ledge, two feet wide of gold
bearing quartz. He stripped the
ledge for 25 feet, and obtained some
fine specimens, free gold being visible to the naked*eye in one of them.
The claim, which he named The
Hidden Treasure, is less than three
miles in a direct line from Nakusp,
and if the assays are satisfactory it
will be -a great boon to this town. A
trail could be built to it in a day, and
ore ready to . ship in the same week

The experiment of   the  eight-hour   day,
or ratlier of   malcing .forty-eight hours  a
week's work, is novv-   being ■tried, in   one of
the largest .mm works in -E:-; gland, the Sal-
ford works at Sal ford, which is a  suburb
of Manchester.    The working hours at three
works have heretofore been   fifty-three per
week, and the reduction is made on an understanding with the men that the output of
, ,'-th'e works .shall not be dirninishecl  by  this
.'shortening of the hours.    The men  are to
be punctual ■;vnd energetic, and to save the
owners from loss because of  this  shortening ot* hours, by greater  industry.    There
is to be no reduction-of  wages, and  if the

MURDEROUS GERMAN ARTILLERY.
Gui;s of Terribly l>et-t«'«c(ive Power, With
Xe*.v I'owdcr and JSxplosive Shells.
So destructive in it * effects is the new
"cr-nau artillery ths t it is asserted, once
tii<* ran ;e were found, a battery would an-
i a.Lte an entire division iu a very short
t jiii-. Prima facie, tliis seems rather to,
sorrier »'! the impossible, but when the re-
i'ult; ot* the experiments which were recently made in the presence of the emperor
\:ui tho new weapons are considered the
task does not app.ar to the Londou Court
ionrnul to be so impracticable after all.
Tlie lir-t shot tired in the course of these
r.\M-riiiieut8 was at a target placed .fifty
1 a ca fnan a wood. The missde missed
t::c target, but plowed its way for 500 yards
through the wood. Shortly afterward a
large area uf tlie wood was discovered to be
o:> lire. This was due to the shell being
chavged with a certain kind of powder, the
composition of which is a secret known
only to the German government. The
splinters from shells burst by this powder
and fired by the ^\.u cover a circle of 900
f.-et. This is a great improvement on the
limited area of ground that was covered by
splinters from shells fired by the artillery
weapon of twenty years ago. Then it was
considered, effective shooting if splinters
from a shell were thrown within "a circuit
of forty or fifty paces and seven or eight
men wounded; but the new gun has a far
greater destructive power than this. Another shell fired at an enormous target,
constructed by the emperor's orders, covered-it with thousands of, holes.
Tiie new German field gun might, per
haps be better described as an enlarged '
rifle, for that- is what it really is. The
ammunition, like riiie cartridges, qonsis's
of one piece only. Ignition is produced by
a ready fuse, and the four kinds of projectiles at present in use, i.e., shell, explosive shell, shrapnel, and grapeshot,
give place to a uniform projectile, an explosive shell, possessing the combined
characteristics of shell' and. shrapnel. ' Thus
the possibility of a gunner mistaking in the
heat of battle one projectile f°v another
will be averted, while the loadiog, aiming
and firing, besides being quicker—for the
new arm is loaded and fired in one-third
of the time requi ed in working the
old gun, and the effect and precision
are almost double—will be surer and unattended with danger. The barrel of tha
new gun is made of cast steel, with a caliber of eight centimeterSv and the total
weight of the gun, limber and carriage is
slightly less than that of the old artillery
weapon. Being lighter, the mobility of
the new gun will, of course, be considerably increased. The limber and gun carriage are made of iron and iron plates.
The limber box is open behind near the
gun when in action. The advantage of
this innovation is that the projectiles can
be served out from the limber and ammunition wagon with greater rapidity.
Another important feature is that the carriage is supplied with a brake, which
counteracts the recoil, the process of load
ing and firing being thus simplified.
Time is divided iaia seconds, minnfcea,
hours, days, weeks, months, years and
centurys. If we expect to become great
and good men and be respected and esteemed by our friends we must improve
our time when we are young. George
Washington improved his time when he
was a boy, and he was not. sorry when
he was at the head of a large army fighting for his country. A great many of
our great men were poor and had but
small means of obtaining an education,
but by improving their time when they
were young, and in school they obtained
their high standing. Jackson was a
poor boy," out h© was placed in school
and by improving his time he*found
himself a President of the United States,
guiding and directing a powerful nation.
If we wish to become great and useful
in the world we must improve our time
in school.—Written by President G-rover
Cleveland when nine years of age.

E. H. Fletcher, the post-office inspector has received little praise in
the Kootenay country during the
past year. He may be blamed for
,. many things but we find that the
quick delivery of mails irom Spokane
: to Nakusp is beyond his jurisdiction.
The matter rests entirely with the
U. S. post-office in Spokane, and it is
only $ut of courtesy that the one ex-
- change bag for the Kootenay district
is sent, to Nelson instead of being forwarded via Victoria.    To ask them
, for another exchange bag, to be sent
to Nakusp would be too much, but
•  we may expect it next year.
The Slocan Times   is t^ename of
7 , New Denver's new paper.   Jt came
rout last week, and the earth still re-
. "volyes on its own axis, while the cli-
'. mate remains tho same. It is full of
_-news, heavy thoughts and the real
^estate ads. of its owners. Its editor,
, who whined some time ago,   until
Captain Fitzstubbs made him a J. P.
to get rid' of him,   now  shows his
- gratitude by abusing Fitzstubbs in a
_ manner befitting a tool of the great
.. JohnH., one of the most vindictive
and abusive writers in the Province.
The Times will live until it dies,
and in tl e meantime ifcs J.P.-auction-

have some difficulty in getting a hat
to fit him-
in the District have paid for doing
the 2
law.
the auction business according to the
Captain Fitzstubbs, Gold Commiss.
oner, arrived in Nelson last Friday
after an absence of three months.
He has not entirely recovered from
the- effects of the severe illness that
detained him so long in Victoria. He
states that all charges preferred by
John Sanderson and others would be
satisfactorily explained at the investigation this week, whi^h will be conducted by Premier 33avie.

The Liard river ::s a branch  of tlie
Mackenzie river, which empties into
the Arctic ocean.    On  the  banks of I
the Liard, COO miles in the interior
of this  Province,   plenty  of gold  is
found, but the season is so   short that
miners who go in there do not   make
much.   Supplies have to be packed
i<i and are very   costly, flour bcing
§23 a hundred.    Shallow   disr&ings
are plenthul along the water course,
t at yield from $1 to $20 a day,  but
they are soon\wo:ked out,   and the
miners have to keep shifting.    Until
a railroad is built very little can be
done,   owing to the  high  prices on
everything at the diggings.

An action may be so clothed as to change
its proper effect on people; with most of us
a sugar-coated vice seems preferable to u
pepper-coated virtue.
Few persons understand the cause ol
their own failures. Judging other affairs
as they do their own, they couldn't tell
why a barrel is empty when it has a hole
in the bottom.-— C, O. Stevens, m Century.
She is a Cliess I'layer.
Very few people are cognizant of the
fact that Queen Victoria is, for a woman,
an    exceptionally    tine   chess   player.
Quite three times  a week during- "the
winter months she indulges in this pastime.    Her most doughty antagonist is
her own daughter, Princess Christian,
who, with all clue deference be it said
wins the majority of games played. Hei
majesty's late munshi, the Indian tutor
^ of, royalty, is a very fine player, as most
"^Hindoos' of the higher caste, are.    He invariably -gives  his rbyal mistress  the
odds of the ■knight* at which odds she
generally  wins,   but the queen has a
; fatal love for the mtizio gambit, which,
as all chess players .know, is an absolutely lost game for the attacking party.
The man who inspects the car wheels is
as necessary to the safety of the traveler as
the president,of the road.   .
It is only- when we are willing to be useful and faithful in-little things that we can
accomplish that which is truly great.
No matter whether he has been to college
or not, the man who can keep sweet when
things go wrong is a man of power. —Rani's
Horn.
| converted and baptized, while at the mouths
; of the Niger, the Congo,   and the  Za nbez'
j their countrymen  built   slave-barracoons
< and anchored their murderous slave-ships
I European governments legalized and sane
j tioned the ulave   trade,   the   public   con
j science of tho   period approved   it,    the
j mitred heads of the Church blessed   the-
j slave gangs as they marched to *tie shore,
j and the tax-collector received tbe levy  pei
j head as lawful revenue.
But here and there during these guilty
centuries words of warning are not wanting. Queen Elizabeth, upon being informed of the forcible capture of Africans
for the purposes of sale, exclaims solemnly
that "such actions are detestable, and will
call down vengeance on the perpetrators."
When Las Casas, in his anxiety to save his
•Indians, suggests that Africans be substituted for them, the Pope, Leo X., declares
that "not only the Christian religion but
Nature iierself cried out against such a
j course."
One hundred and sixty-five years after
the discovery of the Cape, Sir John Hawkins pioneers the way for England to participate in the slave trade, hitherto carried
on by the Portuguese, the Spanish, and
the Dutch.
A century later a king of England,
Charles II., heads an English company
which undertakes to supply the British
West Indies yearly with 30,000 negroes.
After the Asientb Contract, under which
for thirty years England secured the mono-
j poly of supplying the Spanish West Indies
with slaves, as many as 192 ships were engaged every year in the transportation of
slaves from the African coast. The countries which suffered most from the superior
British method of slave capturing and
trading and slave-carrying were Congo j
land, the Niger Valley, the Guinea and J
Gold coasts, the Gambia, Cross, and Calabar lands.
The system adopted by the British crews
in those days was very similar to that  employed by the Arabs to-day in inner Africa.
They   landed   at   night,   surrounded   the
selected village, and then set fire to the
huts, and as the frightened people issued
but of the bufninjg ■houses;'they were seized
and carried to the ships; or sometimes the
skipper, in his hurry f pj sea, sent his crew
to range through the town he was trading
with, and, regardless of rank, to seize upon
every man, woman, and child they met.
Old Town, Creek: Town; and  Duke Town,
in Old Calabar, have often witnessed this
summary and higti-handed proceeding.
