The Kootenay district, East aud
West, comprises an area of overl5,ooo,-
ooo acres, extending north and south
from tbe international boundary to the
Big Bend oi the Columbia. It Is divided by the Parcel) range ut the SslUerks
into East and West Kootenay, aud al
moat the whole district is draiuei by
by the Columbia river, which flows
north through East Kootenay and south
through West Kootenay. Throughout
the whole of Lhe KooLenays mluerai is
found and la great variety.
The Kooteuays first came into ptc-
inlnaoce an mineral sections in the
earlj #y's. A lew of the old miners
from OarlboA, California, Colorado and
other well known mining regions wondered Into the Kootenays lu search of

them. Some of tho more practical of
Lhe little band flung aside precedent
and boldly, proclaimed the mineral
wealth of the new territory. Experts,
whose beads were tilled with California
precedents, were called In aud averted
thut the ore was too base and low grarie
to pay for treatment, and tnat the formation was so broKeu that it would be
impossible to follow any ore body from
the cropplngs to any considerable
dept. ilow mistaken these gentlemen
were has since beenfully demonstrated,
lt has been proven over and over again
that the ore bodies increase as depth Is
attained, and that values Improve;
As already stated, the peculiar formations met with in tins district were
a puzzle to experts who undertook to
report on the rich discoveries. Minerals
ore fouud in almost every combination,
A wholesome sign of tbe times Is the
anxiety being displayed by railway
companies to get into newly opened
districts. The big corporations realize
the immense trade to be captured, and
seem determined to got as big a'ailce of

Heretofore the treatment of the ores

Patronize Home   Stores.
'J here is a strike on in the printing
department of the T. Elton company's
departmental store, Toronto, and not
only have the members of "Old 91"
gone out on striae, but the pressman,
p-ressfedcrs and book folders have aa
well, and there are others of the employees that may follow suit. We presume it is fairly well understood that
the average wage lu this departmental
store to-day is very small—a mere pittance. Think of asking a mau with a
family to provide for and house rent to
pay, etc., to work for -&10 a week, and
nine hours a-day at tbat, with high
rents and the price of necessaries of
life advanced from U to Bo per cent.
higher than they have ever been | It is
a burning shame-—we were going to say
a monstrous crimei* There is DO doubt
but that this departmental store aud
its factories attempts to .net the standard of wages, and thus the sklnnlng-
prooess Is resorted to. Put a man lu
the Central Prison for six months if he
steals some scrap Irom from the Grand
Trunk railway, but ltoni/e and Idollzo
him if he has the ability to akin his fel
lowmen out of a thousand dollars In
hard-earned wages.
Let us appeal to our constituents. Instead of buying through the mall order
system of the Elton company patronize the merchant! In your own vicinity
und keep tbe cash in your own neigh
borhood. They can £ive you as good
bargains, aud much better for that
matter, thau you can obtain in this
store. And many so-called "bargains''
are not bargains at all. Tb': most gullible animal in the world is man, and
there Is no gnilliblllly equal to that involved in thehurgaiu hunting humbug
Tben quit the exhibition of your gulla-
blllty aud patrofllze your "home stores."

Explosion in the Coal  Mine Kills
About 150 Miners.   Money
Neecied for   Widows
and. Orphans.
Hirst   Account   of   the   Disaster.
From Cianbrook Herald.
L'eniie, Mny 2.|.—One of the most disastrous mining accideixtf in lhe history
of British Columbia occurred here
shortly uftur 7:30 o'clock Thursday evening iu the No. 2 mine of the Crows Nest
Pass Coal company's colliery oa Coal
creek. The explosion is said to have extended from the No. 2 ifltne to the No.
3, aud the loss was ver> heavy. At
the time thut the exploshta occurred the
night shift had been at work hut a short
time and ther^e were said to hnve heeu
something less than 250 miners working
in the two aUtrmts. When the extent
of the expiusicnf because known the
work of rescue was 'at omc-r stalled and
at.sislance from every Mailable quartet
wus rushed Lo the scene.
Within ii few minu'es af'.ir thi; explosion took place 10bodiesyVi&e ink u out.
They were fouud a Aiori flfatance from
the point where the tunr.cl.i from the
No. 2 and No j niinej connect. This it
lu the opinion of men who are fum:l.ur
with the workings in the No. 2 miues, a
bad omen, as the gas is sine to be much
worse in the inner ■jhatuh-jrt; of the No.
2, aud it is in this portion of the mine
thnt ihe greater number of the men who
composed the night shift were working.

meu Imprisoned iu these two districts
with their c-eape ciifcoff by the deadly
gases in the. tunuel, even il they have
not ;dreiidy succumbed.
. Despite the awful riatt^ft of tHe calamity perfect order prevails :u.d almost

their ability iu ihe work of rescue. In

mtli^s u*om the mined, a terrible gloom

A'fnoMg tlijso who are uot familiar
with the mine in which \h>* disaster oc**
curred theie is a tendency to the belief
that most of the victims of the accident
will be found to be furtd^uers. This is
far from being the case. The^No. 2 mine
in which the explosion occurred, although khOWn to be dangerous, waa one
of the inov. coveted bv KngHsb speaking
miners who were prepared to take
chances :"ur the reasui: that it afforded
the opportunity to make the largest pay
The most dangerous of I he company's
workings wus the No. 1 mme, which is
immediately actosa the gulch from the
No. 2. This is know: locally as the
dangerous workings for the reason that
certain restrictions wen- placed upou tht:
company in working theni- which were
not made to apply to the other mines,
and it 'was iu this mine that tbe bulk uf
the foreigners were aL work. They are
all absolutely safe, tht company's immense tipple being the only connection
between them and the mines in which
the explosion took place.
The No 3 and No. 3 mines have common nddit, but some ...vi yards in their
workings brunch out aim '-.t at right angles. The workings art; JI on the level
and those uf No. z extend into the hill
close upon a mile. Thi*. mine, it is said,
haa been making gas more rapidly as
the work has been advanced Iuto the
hill, aud for the last three-quarters of
the distance the mine:, have -been restricted to the use of safety lamps, while
thj men in the No. 3 luiuei opening off
from it, have been permitted to use open
lamps. The mines were ventilated, Irom
a common fan, and this having been
rendered Inoperative aud the uddits
choked up, therfrwere Ua hopes held out
for the impiisoucd men.
The   first   Intimation ol  the disaster
which thoirfon the outside received wus
the rush of cpsl dust aud  tire to the
height of over 1000 feci   ibova the fan,

Burying   the   Dead.
Ferule, May 24 —This was a day of
"funerals iu Fernie and oue which will be
long remembered. The arrangements
were wrell systematized. As the bodies
of the victims were taken from the mines
they were made presentable in the company's wash house, and as each shift of
the rescuers were relieved, the bodies.
were loaded on the train and brought iu
to Fernie. At the depot in many instances the bereaved wcro waiting to
claim their dead, and in such instances
the bodies were taken tu the homes.
But iu the majority of cases the relatives had no knowledge that thcijodies
were ou the train, which made round
trips every four hours, aud the bodies
were taken to lhe church of Hngland,
which ua*i used as a general morgue, and
ii number were afterwards taken from
the morgue by relatives, but such as remained Unclaimed by 6 o'clock io the
evening were accorded a public funeral
hy the committee of the Fernie board of
trade, und by arrangement all places of
business were closed and tlie people of
the town fell iu line behind Ihe string
of wagons carrying the bodies of the
victims and followed them to the grave.
There were 17 of the public funerals and
iu one Instance there were 14 colli us in
the procession, All told there were 35
funerals during the day and a lung line
61 graves marks the increase in Ferule's
city of the dead, au Increase which unfortunately will be quadrupled before all
the victims of the disaster are laid ut
Fired   Out   Constable   Stevens.
Fertile, "day 26.—-Au iiicidi'ut occurred
last evening that has caused considerable comment and 110 end of Joy on the
part of the peonle. It seems Lhat the
miners heard that Constable Stevens, a
man wdio had heeu given his job by Constable Barnes, had made a remark to the
effect that he was sorry that there had
not beeu 20a more men at work when
the expjosiou occurred. Naturally, at
such a time when every heart was wrung
with sorrow and nerves were at a high
tension, such a brutal comment would
arouse the ire of any mau, if he IihiI a
spark oi manhood in him. The men
talked over the matter and finally concluded to take action. Cool counsel pre
vailed aud it waa the desire of the men
to compel Stevens to clear the town.
They called at the jail   ami  were met by
Constable Barnes,, who begun to expostulate, but the men were uot in a mood
for that aud told him lo produce Stevens, or he would have to go. Btevens
was produced and the men, about 500
. troug, formed Into two lines and tiie In
suiter o( the dead was forced between
the two rows. The man was told to
take ull his uniform and star before he
itarted anil then DO lime, was lost in
forcing him to-theruilro.td track and out
of town .0 the east. The men were exceedingly temperate. In moat casts the
constable would have gotten n dose of
tar and feathers.
Wundt'rf-al   Porte   ni   Explosion.
The force of the explosion was so
great that tin .dr aud coal dUB , *■■ i.h
rocks and chunks of coal were forced
back through the fan house, carrying
away the roof of the building, and it bus
not been seen slpco. A column of dust
nnd rocks arose nearly 1000 feet high,
and then spread out find dropped, covering that side of the mountain wish the
debris. So strong was the form! lhat
from one ol the old tunnels large timbers were torn loose and  blown  out  uf
the mouth through., the bath house.
And it is said that in some c.i*es the
clothing was torn from the bodies of unfortunate victims and even buttons ripped off.
Scarcity   of   Coffins.
When it became known that such a
large number of men had been lost in
Lhe explosion, the question of burial confronted those interested! aud the company begun to telegranb to Cranbrook
and Nelson. A large number of caskets
were secured at Nelson and Undertaker
Campbell had 25 ou baud that he could
let go, and a carload at Morrlssey on the
way here from the east He acted with
promptness aud arranged with the railroad Hiithorittes to turn that enr back
and give it over to the coal company,
making 75 iu all that lie furnished.
Graves   In   Demand.
The little cemetery in Fernie was uot
in shape to receive such u sudden ami
large addition caused by the disaster.
More 'ground was cleared ofl and men
set tu work digging graves in lung rows
lo receive the dead as fast as the bodies
were recovered, identified anil made
ready for burial. Owing to the changes
taking place every day. and the fact that
many of the men were so badly mutilated by '.he force of the explosion, there
will necessarily be a great numbei of the
victims who will be buried in nameless
A   Cranbrouk   Boy's   Escape,
Bruce Stewart, a former em (lojeof the
Cosompolitan hotel, and the victim of
small pox last year, was employed iu
the fatal shift, but fortunately was called
out to the mouth of the tunnel a few
moments before the explosion for it-pairs
for the motor in his charge. As a con-
sequence he escaped all injury.
Funerals   All   the   Trine.
Undertaker Campbell returned Tuesday night from Fernie. Hk said that
funerals were being held every hour aud
lhat in many cases the remains were in
such condition that the collins were not
allowed to be opened. Women and
children were following the dead
through the streets crying and moaning
andtthe whole   town   was in mourning
Quiet   in   Fernie   Yesterday.
Government Agent Armstrong arrived
In Cranbrook on lhe delayed passenger
Weduesday morning. lie had gone
there on a special ir.aju^dond.iy when
he heard the rumors uf a possible 1 ml.
Speaking of the conditions be said that
everything was quiet there, aud that the
men had made uo demonstration whatever since chasing Constable Stevens out
of town, but had been quiet and orderly,
Nothing had been done with Constable
Henderson, but he had heard threats
and lost no time in getting out of town
also. Constable IJarnes had heard
threats, but had uo' left or surrendered
his f-Ur as it had beeu reported. The
bodies that are now being taken out are
badly mutilated and many so disligured
that Identification is impossible. There
is uo truth ia the report that a number
of specials had been sworn in, as Mr.
Armstrong did not deem it necessary.
Mr, Bullock-Webs ter, chief of the police
for the Kootenays, visited Fernie Tuesday, returning to Hlko that night, Mr.
Robertson, provincial mineralogist, at-
rived lu Fernie Monday iu company
with William Blakemore, ami the two
madeauuflici.il visit to the mine. Mr.
Blakemore, the next day, gave out.a
report to the effect that iu all probabll
ity the bodies would all be recovered
this week.
Mr. Armstrong said that considerable
feeling was exhibited against A. Dick,
inspector of mines, owing to the fact
that be had anly two days before signed
a certificate lo the effect that the miues
were all right.
Cause   01   Explosion,
Fernie, M.iy 26 —Opinions as tu the
cause of the explosion differ widely bat
one that is generally offered by the uiiu-
rs themselves Is  that  it was caused by
the drilling  machine hole, close to the
rib."    Wheu   this  Is done   the black
powder has not sufficient chance to expand and not Infrequently  catches fire
Il is said that experiences  of the  kind
have been had before and that difficulty
was experienced In getting the fire out.
Former   Cranbrook    Boy   Killed.
Si J Marsh, a young mau who drove a
team iu Cranbrook aud waa favorable

He lelt here and worked foi about three
years in the St. Kugene at Moyie and

There wos a rich and powerful king
who hnd n daughter remarkable for her
beauty. When this princess arrived at
an age to be married, he caused u piue-
himntion to be made by sound of a trumpet ond by placards ou all the "alls of
his kingdom to the effect that all those
who hnd any pretension to her hand
were to assemble in a widespread meadow.

gathered together, the princess would
throw into thu nir a golden apple, and
whoever succeeded in catching it would
then have i<> resolve three problems, after doing which he might marry the
princess und. lhe king having uo sun, inherit the kitlgdum.

turned to ask the little old woman hmv

of confidence, however, in what he regarded ns a good genius, he went next
day to the palace and said to the king:

when he reached the meadow he had not

Ho sat himself down pensively, not
daring to believe in the virtue of hia

lips, he blew into it with nil liis might.
Immediatelyi to his great astonishment, from right nnd left, from before

News was brought to the king how the
yipung shepherd had probably resolved
the problem of tbe hares. The king conferred ou the matter with his daughter.
Both were greatly vexed, for if the young
shepherd succeeded with the two other

simple peasant, than which nothing could

The princess retired to her chamber
and disguised herself in Such n wny as
to render herself unrecognizable. Then
she hud a horse brought for her, mounted it and went to (he young shepherd.
The hundred hares were frisking joyously nround him.
"Will you sell me ono of your hares?"
nsked the young princess.
"I would not sell you one of my hares
for nil the gold iu the world," replied the
shepherd, "hut you may gnin one."
"At what priceV" asked the princess.
"Hy dismounting from your horse und

sprang to the ground and made off as
fast us Ida legs would carry him.
A moment afterward the shepherd caw
a peasant coming toward him mounted
on n donkey, It was the old king, nlso
disguised, who had quitted the palace
with the same intention as his daughter
A large hag hung from thu donkey's

he nsked of the young shepherd.
".My hares are not for sale," replied
the shepherd, "but they may be gained."
"What must OUO da to gain one?"
The shepherd considered for u moment.
"Vou must kiss threo times thu tail of
your donkey," ho said.
This strango condition was greatly re-
pugUQiit to the old king,  who triad his
hardest to esettpe it, gulug 80 fur US to
oHer niMMtO francs for a single hnre. hut
the young shepherd would not budge
from the teruffl he hnd named. At last
the king, who held absolutely to gelling
po-Jsi'Hsion of one of the hares, submitted to the conditions) humiliating us they
were for a king. Three times he kissed
the tail of his donkey, who was greatly
surprised at a king doing him so miieii
honor, niu! Ihe shepherd, faithful to his
promise, gave him the bare demanded
with so mueh Insistence.
Tin- king tucked his bare into bis bng
and rode away ut the utmost speed of his
donkey. i
Hut he hnd hardly gone n quarter of a

the air, on hearing which tbo hare nibbled at the bag so vigorously ns speedily
to make a hole, out of wbicb it lenped lo

"Well?" Inquired the princess on seeing the king return to thu palace.
"I hardly know what to tell you. my
daughter," replied the king. "This young
shepherd is nn obstinate fellow, wno refused io sell tue one of his hares ut any
price. But don't distress yourself. He'll
not get so easily through the two other
tasks as be bas done with this one,"
It need hardly be snid thnt the king
made no allusion to the condition under
which he hud fur a moment hnd pWUl'S*

princess said nothing about tbe terms of

"That is exactly my case," she remarked. *'I could not induce him to part with
one of hia hares either fur gold or silver."
When evening came, the shepherd returned with his hares. He Counted them
before   the   king.    Thero   waa   not   one
more or one less.  They were given hack
to tbe minister of the interior, who bad
them driven into the stable.
Thenvithe king said:
"Thu   first   problem   has  been  solved.
The second now  remains to he accomplished.     Pay   great   attention,    young
The shepherd listened with all his ears.
"Up yonder In my granary," the king i
went   on,   "tbere are   1UU  measures  of

Lentils uud peas are mixed together.   If

"I'll do my hesl," replied the young
And the king called bis minister of the

up to the granary, locked him in nud
bunded the key tu the king.
As it was already night and ns foi
such a labor (here was no time to he lost,
lhe shepherd put his whistle to his lips
und blew a long, shrill note.
Instantly 5,000 auts appeared and sol
to work separating the leniils from the
peas and never stopped until the whole
was divided Into Iwo heiips.
The next morning the king, to his great

but was unable to lind nny ground what

he "lid not give wny tn despair.
"What now remains for you to do," be
said, "is to go into the bread room nnd
in a single night eat the whole week's
biend, which is stored there. If tomorrow morning not a single crumb is to be
found there, I will consent to your mnr-
rylng my daughter."
Tbat same evening tlie young shepherd
was conducted tn the bread room of the
palace, which was su full of bread thai
only a very small space near the door
remained unoccupied.
Hut at midnight, when all wns quiet In
klie pa lact1, tho shepherd sounded his
whistle. In n moment 10,000 mice fell to
gnawing ut the bread in such a fashion
that the next morning not a single crumb
rem ui lied in tho placo.
The young man then hammered at the
door with nil his might and called out:
"Make haste nnd opeu the door, please.
for I'm hungry!"
The third task was thus victoriously
accomplished, ns the others had been.
Nevertheless, the king tried hard to get
out of his cngngoineut.
He had a sack big enough to hold six
measures of wheat brought and, having
called n goad number of his courtiers
about him, said: "Tell us ns many fnlse-
hoods as will fill this suck, and when it
is full you shnll have my daughter."
Then tbe shepherd repented all the
falsehoods he could think of, hut the day
was half spent, and ho was ut tho end of

The village clock was striking the
hour of 5 one afternoon as Annie Graham stepped out of ber trim and comfortable cottage to meet ber husband
at the gate.
Sbe made a pleasant picture for tbe
eye to rest upon. Her year of married
life bad been a very bappy one, and
never did maiden look more eagerly
for ber lover than did sbe for ber bus-
band's return from the distant city,
whither be bad gone a week ago on
business for bis employers.
Among the few ornaments sbe wore
wns a beautifully chased gold bracelet
which encircled her left wrist. As her
eye caught its gleam a peaceful smile
lit up her sweet fucc, for It was ber
husband's gift to ber on ber last birthday.
Sbe stood at the gate and looked
down the road In the direction of the
small mining village through which
her husband must pass on bis way
from the station. A man's form eatne
Into view on the quiet road, but a single glance sulllccd to show ' T tbat It
wus not the fnmiliar figure she looked
for. She scarcely observcil tbe man
further, ber eyes traveling beyond blm
to scan the road, till he baited almost
at her side.
"Can't you spare a copper for a poor
fellow who bos walked all the way
from"— he begnn, wltb the usual plea
und whine of tbe professional tramp,
but stopped abruptly and gave vent to
a low whistle.
"So It's you!' he exclaimed sneering-
ly, recovering from his surprise.
"Aren't you glad to see an old pal?"
She looked at him for a moment,
then drew back In fear.
"1 suppose you've got too high and
mighty for tbe likes of me," be continued, observing ber action. "I beard
you bad got spliced to the gaffer of a
mine somewhere about this quarter,
but bad no ideu of sucb a slice of luck
as this happy meeting wltb you. So
this Is where you hang out, cb? It
does look rather comfortable Inside."
He drew nearer tbe gate and made
as if to enter.
"No, no, you cannot come In," sbe
cried In alarm. "See, bere Is some
money.   Take lt nnd go away."
He examined the contents of tbe
purse which she handed to blm. Tbey
amounted to only half a dollar, and be
was dissatisfied.
"I'm as dry as a dusty road ln June,
and this will hardly wet my throat.
Let's see that bauble on your wrist. It
should be worth something." he said,
looking greedily at the bracelet.
"No, indeed, I will not 1 bave already given you more than enough, so
please go."
"Not if I know a thing or two," he
snid, wltb a cunning leer. "Did you
tell your adorable husband that you
got tbe swop from Watson's for nabbing a trinket like tbat? No, I guess
"You know how false tbat charge
was." she cried indignantly, but wltb
fear lu her eyes at the mention of her
"Ob, of course you say so, but who
would believe you?" be returned.
"Hand over that bit of jewelry, and
mum's tbo word."
"It's my husband's gift to me," sbe
pleaded, "and I cannot part with It. I
will give you Its value In money, but
do uot ask this."
She turned to enter the bouse for tbe
money, but he was too quick for her.
"Not so fast, my pretty. 'A bird In
the band Is worth two In tbe bush' nny
dny. I can make as good terms wltb
your husband, so It must be that gilt
thing or nothing."
Sbe eagerly scanned the road again.
Yonder nt last was the well known
stalwart figure of her busband. Should
she tell blm all and trust to bis believing In her Innocence? What if be
should believe this man's story?
These thoughts passed quickly
through her mind. The risk of losing
bis love and respect seemed too great
to face. She slipped tbe bracelet from
her wrist and banded It to tbe man.
"Tbere, take it and go quickly," sbe
said, wltb white, drawn face.
He snatched It from ber and walked
away, bumming a lively air and looking tbe virtuous man be claimed to be

John Graham greeted bis young wife
affectionately, and together tbey enter
ed the bouse. He observed ber pallor
for the first time as she turned up tbe
light of the dining room lamp.
"What's tbe matter, Annie?" be Inquired anxiously. "You look as If you
bad got a fright. Have you been moping In my absence? I meant to be bnck
a couple of days sooner, but I could
not get my business finished In time."
"It Is nothing, Joha I did weary for
your coming, and I am glad to see you
borne again," she said, wltb an effort
to keep tbe tremor out of her voice.
"I have news for you, dour," be said
wben tbey were seated at tbe tenta-
ble. "I met some of my people In tbe
city and was Invited borne. As they
appeared to be holding out tbe olive
branch of peace of course 1 went, and
tbe upshot was tbat matters were
smoothed over. Tbey bavo most graciously condescended to forgive us for
marrying, and my mother nnd sisters
are coming on tbo 28tb to spend a few
days with us.
"See what 1-hnve brought you from
the city. I remembered that the '28th Is
your birthday and thought you would
like this. You might wear It wben
they come, along with the one I gave
you last yenr. I want you to bo nt
your best before my people."
*■ be snokx be drew a small parcel
from his pocket nud unfolded It, re-
vcnllng n-brncelet of exquisite design
upon a bed of velvet. He handed the
gift to her with a tender smile.
"I am not worthy of this, John," she
snid faintly, while a mist rose before
her eyes. She wns already jaylng
dearly for her error In ber transaction
with the Hump.
"Nonsense, my dear. Bring out the
other one and let me see bow they look
"Not tonight, John.  Please don't ask
me," sbe said so earnestly tbat be looked up ln surprise.
"Pm afraid you are not yourself to
night, Annie. You do look rather ghostlike. But dou't trouble nbout the
bracelets, as I can see tbem both on
the 28th."
When the guests nrrlved. It struck
him that bis wife bad never appeared
to greater disadvantage. Sbe looked
pale and anxious nud seemed to avoid
meeting bis eyes. He was annoyed to
see the proud lips of bis mother and
sisters curl at bis wife's awkwardness,
and he felt tbat she had not done herself justice. Once he whispered:
"You are not wearing both bracelets
"No," sbe answered In a low voice
and wltb averted eyes. He turned
nway, wltb a look of disappointment.
When the visitors retired for the
night, be took both ber bands In bis.
"There Is something wrong, Annie
Whnt Is It?"
Could sbe tell blm, or must sbe go on
deceiving him nml enduring the misery
of the pnst few days? He wns a man
who was upright in nil his actions and
hated deceit In any form. Yet she
would ouly be doing him a further Injustice by concealing the truth. In a
low voice she began and recounted the
wholo story. When she hud finished,
he remnltled silent. She lifted her tenr
stained face to blm,
"You do not believe me, nnd therefore you cannot forgive me?" she nsked wistfully.
"I both believe und forgive you," he
said gently. "But whnt you have told
me Is not quite new to me. I knew
nbout Ihe charge ngaiust you when I
asked you to marry me, but I believed
In you. And wlililu Ihe last twenty-
four hours I have heard the rest of the
story.   Do you recognize this?"
She wns astonished to see him hold
up the bracelet which she hnd parted
with so unwillingly to the tramp.
"Your friend the trump got tbe worse

It was close to 3 o'clock in the afternoon when Amos Garner returned from
luncheon. He was a busy man and
lunched when he caught the favorable
moment. The cares of a great mercantile establishment weighed heavy on
his shoulders. He showed tbe burden in
his seamed and knotted face. He was
not reckoned a kindly or a sympathetic
man, and his appearance, his sharp
glance, his hooked nose and his aggres-
give chin bore out the popular opinion.
As he entered his private ollice ho
brushed by two young men who wei'o
seated on a settee near the door. One of
the two was a mere boy, of nineteen,
perhaps, a pale faced yonng fellow who
manifestly shrank bnck as the elder
youth took bim by tbe arm and led him
Into Amos Gainer's room. The great
merchant was hanging up his heavy cunt
ns they eotered. He turned quickly nud
looked at tho pair.
"Mr. Gainer," snid the older youth,
"we have a littlo business to transact
with you and will make lt ns brief us
The merchant looked ot them sharply
and then seated himself at his desk und
drummed nervously on the polished surface before him.
"Business of Interest to me?" he asked, with lowered brows.
"Yes," replied the older of the two.
"Make It brief," said the merchant and
pointed to seats.

to the desk, the hoy sitting in the shadow a little behind him,

tho tears In his eyes, drew me to him.
I knew he was in trouble." Tho merchant raised his head n little nud cast a
sharp glance toward the boy. But the
latter bad drawn back behind his companion and was quite shielded from
view." "I watched tho boy," the speaker
proceeded, "and when he had finished
his writing and placed the sheets iu addressed envelopes and left them lying
on the table 1 picked them up and hurried after him as be ascended to the
deck. I was close behind him when be
threw down bis bat aad clambered on
the rail. I drew him hack. I did my best
to calm him, and presently he told me
his story, and I gave him the best advice
I could."
Tho merchant leaned forward to have
a better look at tbe speaker.
"Are you quite sure this interests me?"
he said.
"Quite sure," replied the older youth
gravely. "One of tbe letters written by
this unfortunate boy is addressed to you,
the other wns to have been forwarded to
bis invalid Bister. The boy was running
away sir, running away from you, ami
then, when ho saw the futility of such
a course, ho determined to end his troubles at once and forever. He sees things
in a different light now, aud the first
morning train from Buffalo brought him
back here to tell you so."
"That's very thoughtful ot him," said
tho great merchant grimly.
"Here is the letter," said the older
The merchant took the envelope and
stored at the address.
"It's a very pretty story," be said,
with a half sneer.
"It's a very ugly story," Bald the older
"Ot course I am to understand that
this young fellow bas been stealing either my money or my stock," the merchant went on.
"The letter will tell you that he has
embezzled $202," said the older youth.
"Then It's a case for the police," said
the merchant, and his head reached for
the electric button at the side of his desk.
Then he hesitated, bis gaze meeting
that ot the older youth, whose eyes were
goutlo aad yet steady and fearless. He
slowly drew back.
"I ought to send for an officer at
once," he growled.
"But you will not," said tha older
Tbe merchant raised his heavy eye*
brows uud stared nt the speaker again.
"What's the hoy's name?" he asked.
"John Heathcote."
"Where was he employed?"
"He was an assistaut in the cashier's
"Whut was his salary?"
"Ten dollars a week."
"What did he do with It?"
"Supported himself aud an Invalid sister."
"How did he steal the money?"
"He had bills to collect last week, and
he railed lo turn In all his collections."
"What did be do witb the stolen money?"
"It went Into a bucket shop. He was
lured Into It by some of his fellow clerks.
He didn't know the duager, and the stories they told him of sudden gains turned
his head. He lost from the start antl it
was lhe attempt to retrieve these early
losses that swelled the defalcations."
"That's an old story," said the grim
"Painfully told and painfully true," asserted the young man.
"There is a proposition, I suppose?"
growled the merchant
"There is."
Before the old man could pursue his
queries there v as a rap at the door.
"Come io," said the merchant
A clerk entered.
"The gentleman from Atlanta, who
desired to see you at 3 o'clock, Is here,
sir." ho said.
"Till him I'm engaged this afternoon,"
snid Ihe old merchant "I will see him
at I) tomorrow morning."
"He wished me to sny that he will be
obliged to return home tonight, sir,"
"If  ho  cau't   see  cue  ul   0.   let   him
write," said the merchant sharply, and
the clerk withdrew.
Then the grim old man turned back to
tbe youth.
"Before we go any further In this matter," he said, "I want to know wbat interest you have in it."
"An interest tbat has nothing to do
with dollars and cents," said the youth,
with a little smile.
The old  man  shook his  head  doubt-
"Friend of the sister's, perhaps?"
The face of the youth Bushed a little.
"I have never seen her," he snid.
"But   why   should  you   stick   hy  the
"Becauso he needs a friend," said the
young man simply and stretched his
arm back and laid his hand on the hand
of the boy.
The boy, crouching behind bis friend,
uttered a quick sob.
"Stop  that,"  said  the  old   merchant
sharply.   "Wo can't have any disturbance here?'
There was a little silence.
"What's your proposition?" he abruptly celled.
"It's very simple," replied the young
man. "We propose that you take back
this erring but contrite boy and that you
give him the chnnco to pay back the
amount he hns taken. Let him pay a
part of his salary ench week until the
delinquency Is wiped out. Iu the menu-
tlmu you hold that letter ns proof of his
Tlie old merehnut frowned.
"That would be establishing a very
bad precedent," he growled.
"There is one other condition," the
young man went on. "Tho affair is to remain a profound secret, known to uo
one outside of this room."
The old mnn opened his eyes.
"Aro you aware thnt I am considered
a hard man?" ho slowly asked. "Haven't
you heard that most of my 1300 employees regard mo ub a soulless tyrant?"
"1 hnve learned to distrust popular
prejudice in these personnl matters," replied the young man. "My own fnlher
hns been held up to the world ns an example of heartless greed and cartooned
and vilified, when I know he is the best
of men."
But the old merchant did not heed his
words. He wus looking ut the boy's letter.
"Iu the first place," bo said, "we
might as well destroy this. It could
mako trouble in the future." And he
tore the envelope aud its contents into
fragments. Then he looked up. "Boy,"
ho said, "come here." The Ind arose and
stepped to the desk. The old man looked
him over. "You may go buck to your
place," ho said. "Each Saturday afternoon you will bring to me $2 from your
salary. If I find that you are faithful
and ambitious, you may rest assured
that 1 will recognize the fact In a practical way. Should your sister notice that
your salary Is apparently decreased, you
may sny to hpr that yon are investing it
in a sinking fund by my personal advice.
Thnt is all. Iteturn to your work and
tell the cashier that you were detained
by me."
"Thank you sir," said the boy brokenly.
"I fancy your thanks are all due to this
smiling Samaritan here," said the old
man. "He has saved both your life and
your honor, nnd if you ever forget It you
are—well, certainly not tho boy I am
willing to aid."
The lad cangbt the young man's hnnd
and pressed it <and then hurried from
the room.
"One moment," said the old merchant
as his visitor arose. "If you are not employed dr wish a change, I would be
glad to offer you a place."
"Thank you," said the young man,
"but I am as well satisfied with my preaent place as I ever hope to be witb any
form of labor. I'm a natural idler, you
The old man shook his -head as though
ho doubted tbis, and tbere was a wistful
look in his eyes as be regarded the
young man.
"I regret that you cannot come," he
said. "1 would like to have you near
me. You are a very uuusual sort of
young man. But you'll promise me one
thing—you'll como in to see me from
time to time, won't you?"
"With pleasure," replied the visitor.
"It wi|l give me the chance to inquire
after my protege. And from what he
told me I think I would like to know
more about his invalid sister." He looked at the old man and smiled. "Perhaps
we might do something to make her dull
life a littlo brighter."
The old man nodded as it In answer to
an appeal,
"I feel sure we can," he said. Then
he put out his band. "Before you go I
wnnt to know your name."
"Greer, Dunham Greer," replied the*]
young man,
"Greer?" repeated the old man. "Yon

"He has been called so," Dunham replied.
"Understand me," said tbe old man.
"I don't think any more of you on this
"Why  shonld   you?"  cried  Dunham
lightly.    "At times I have found it a
positive  handicap.    A  rich man's son
gets credit for very little useful behavior
in this prejudiced world.   It's quite discouraging."
But he laughed as ho said It

Some Interesting stories are told about
the circus business, but one of the bent
heard in a long while was told by aa old
press agent:
"The show hnd had a prosperous sea*
eon In the north. The proprietor made up
his mind there could he uo end to good
business, and he planned a trip south for
the winter months. The cotton crop waB
poor, and nil intelligent circus men steer

His friends went to him and tried to get

and gradually Increased till I could not
move eith'-T of my arm 3 or legs, having
lobt all powv-r ln them. I could not
have raised my arma to my head to save
my life. Por over lour months I could
not stand or walk a single step. I doc-
lored with all the local doctors, and
th?n with a Eowmanvllle doctor. Each
one gave me some different medicine,
but the more I took the worse I go'.
At last the BowmanvlUe doctor told
me that nothing could be don-2 for me
unless I went to the hospital In Toronto, where they might perhaps have aome
later treatment for paralysis which
would fit my case. I w'ent thero to-
ward tho end of January, 1838, and remained undjr treatment ln that Institution for a l.ttle over four weeks.. **?.ll
was In vain; I got woras. Twelve doctors told m3 I could not recover, and
that nothing could te done for me, £0,
as I wag getting worse every day, and
there was no hope of their being able
tu help me ln the least, I was removed
to my hom3 here. I was Ilka a bab-f,
unable to move.
At this extremity someone advised ma
to use Dodd'a Kidney P.lls, and my wifa
bought a box. We had not the slight,
eat Idea that they would help me, but,
like a drowning man, I grasped at every
(straw. After I had used the first box
the. numbness began to leave my finger
tips, and I felt a little better, and kept
on using the pills. . By two months'
tllme; I could walk a little, and shortly afterward was able to go short distances without assistance..
The first time I went down town on»
•f the doctors who had given me up
saw me across the street, and, not being
able to believe his eey^a, went to my
brother Robert, and asked, "Is that your
brother Joe J" Robert told him that
it waa I, and he said ln astonishment,
"Well, I never expected to see him
around again."
I used altogether twelve boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and by the first
of May I was able to start to work
again ln the shop here, and I have; never
been sick or off work a day since then,
that la over three and -a half yeara
I am glad of the opportunity to make
this statement, for I am sure I owe my
life, health and strength to work to that
treat remedy, Dodd'a Kidney Pills.

After leaving college I determined to
take a course at one of tbe German
universities. I chose Heidelberg, wbicb
in tbose days -was tbe best known, and
took a three years' course. I Joined
one of tbe corps and In time became
Involved ln several student duels.
Wben I left Heidelberg, where I bnd
takeu more Interest ln tbe smnll sword
than my studies, 1 stopped In Purls before returning to America, wltb n view
to seeing some French feucing. One
evening a party of us visited the celebrated school of M. Brlsson. While we
were watching the pupils fence a man
entered and nfter looking on for awhile
proposed to take the foils with the
principal. Brlsson consented nnd wns
astonished, as we all were, nt the stranger's skill. After disarming his adversary be took up u piece of chalk, rubbed It on the foil, and, calling to Brls-
sou to place himself on guard, made
one brilliant stroke after another anil
at Inst left a chalk mnrk or a llgure 8
on tho fencing master's waistcoat directly over the heart.
"Victor Morrol!" exclaimed several
who wcro present with the same
"Who Is Victor Morrel?" I asked.
"Tbe most noted awordsman ll
"A duelist?"
"No; singularly enough, be bas not
the courage to fight n duel."
"What Is his occupation?"
My lnformunt, n Frenchman, shrugged bis shoulders after tho French
fashion and walked out of the school
without replying to my question. Brlsson at once doffed bis wire mask and
put up his foil. In doing so he turned
bis back upon bis former antngonlst
and took care to keep It turned till
Moirel bad left tbe academy. Evidently the man wbo bad shown bis skill
was not a favorite wltb him or, for tbe
matter of that, with any one present
Tbe Frenchmen all departed, leaving
tbe room to our party. Morrel also departed, and as he passed me I noticed
the most repulsive face I had ever seen
on a man. I did not wonder at tbe disfavor In wbicb be was held. I should
have been afraid to pass him In a lonely road had he cause to prick me ln tbe
Three years later, ln company with
my friend Walter Douglas, I again visited Europe, sailing from New York to
Cherbourg and going from tbere to
Mentone, a winter resort In tbe soutb
of France. One evening Douglas went
to walk with a little French girl who
bad captivated him by her smart appearance. He failed to return to tho
hotel, and toward morning, becoming
anxious for bis safety, I went to search
for him. I found blm lying In his blood
la tke gardens stabbed through tbe
heart. His coat bad been cut by the
point of a knlfo or sword so as to make
what looked like tbe letter S. The
blade had entered tbe heart at the
point where the tracing ceased.
In agony at tbe murder of my friend,
I called a gendarme, and tbe body was
removed. I made every effort to find
tbe murderer, but without success. Tbe
mysterious letter S cut ln bis coat
would not be dropped from my mind.
It seemed to partly awaken some memory. At last I remembered Morrel and
the figure 8 he bad chalked on tbe
Waistcoat of M. Brlsson. Tben It occurred to me that the letter S was aa
Incomplete figure 8.
Going at once to the police ofllce, I
requested tbem to arrest the little
French girl whom Douglas had beea
with on the night of his murder, and
when sbe arrived at the police office 1
questioned ber myself. She came In
charge of a gendarme, frightened and
weeping, but, I fancied, on ber guard.
"Have you a lover?" I asked.
"No, m'sleu."
"Do you know any one expert with
the sword?"
"No, m'sleu."
Sbe preserved ber equanimity, bnt I
aaw that tbe question startled her.
"Did you ever aee a man cut or mark
the figure 8 upon an adversary'!
Bhe turned pale and did not reply.
"Where Is Victor MorrelJ"
This broke her down. "I had nothing
to do with it," she cried. "He was Jealous of—the American. Do not bring
me to the guillotine, I beseech you."
I turned to tbe prefect ot police.
"The case Is ln your hand*," I aald.
"Find Victor Morrel."
"Where Is M. Morrel?" he asked of
the girl.
"Ob, I do not knowl  Spare me!"
"Take her away," said the officer to
the gendarme. "Sbe will finish ber career on tbe guillotine."
This waa too much for ber fidelity to
ber lover. "I do not know where he
Is," ahe said. "Yesterday he was ln
Tbat evening Morrel was arrested ln
Marseilles and brought to Mentone for
trial He put on a bold front, feeling
sure that tbere were no witnesses of
the murder.
"M. Morrel," asked tbe prosecuting
attorney, "WBy were you ao foolhardy
ne to leave the figure 8 on the heart of
the man you killed?"
"I did not," tbe prisoner exclaimed,
"It looked like tbo letter S, bnt bnd
yon completed lt you would have made
an 8 of lt"
The prosecutor beld up the murdered
man's coat, on which had been cut tho
letter S. The prisoner fell back, clutching bis balr and moaning:
"I must havo been drunk.**
It appeared later that he had been
drinking heavily and was unconscious
of cutting tbe mark ho was accustomed to lenve on tbose bo worsted In
fencing. Ho was convicted, and before
I left France he was taken out of jail
one morning before daylight and guillotined. ALAN JAY rONDIB.

Rossland Miner : The Miner understands that developments of an Interesting and important nature are contemplated by the management of the Le
Rol No. 2 mine, the effect of wnich will
be to benefit the Goldtf:, City at home
and abroad.
Additional men nre being added to
the crew at the Le Hoi No. 2 dally.
rbese increases are nci iirge frcm day
to day, but. in the aggregate they will
be considerable.
We Understand tbat ccxt month will
see a most substantial addition to the
payroll of the mine as : lie outcome of
the Inauguration of a program, the details of which have not been announced
by the management.
At this particular juncture, when
.here Is a disposition in seme quarters
to take a pessimistic view of matters,
it is gratifying to report a move on the
pirtof one of the most Important
mines in the camp, which indicates
implicit confidence ln   be property.
Word from Nelson announces that
John Houston ia again lo enter Lhe
newspaper field In tha; city, on a larger
scale than eror, The efflce is to be
equipped with a complete engraving
plant and a feature Oi ihe new paper
will be its illustrations o! the many Interesting features c. the Kootenay
The latest reports from Victoria are
to the effect that the Canada Northern
railway deal Is cff. When D-inamulr
discovered that he could not put the
land grant through the house, he undertook to compromise by striking out the
land grant and raising tne cash bonus
to $6,000 a mile. This did not suit
Cireen-xhiclds and he threw up the deal,
declaring thlt he could not raise a
postage .stamp on a charter which did
not give a land gram. Consequently
It Is pretty safe to forecast that the
Cicada Northern bill will be dropped.
The Coast-Kootenay still remains to be
dealt with.
