A FIRST CLASS HOUSE
Simple Test for < oppcr Ores.
My observations in the fi.'ld concerning the needs and difficulties of prospectors in relation lo tbe copper ores which
they ao frequently encounter, and to
which so many have recently turned especial attention, leads me to suggest for
tbeir benefit a simple method of determining the presence aud approximate
amount of copper in an ore sample.
If lhe prospector will provide hims,-If
with a bottle of niiric acid, and a bottle
of ammonia, and two or three good-sized
test lubes, he can easily learn bow to
test ore Ur copper. Pulverize a small
portion of the ore to be tested iu a mortar or between two flat stones. Put
about a half leasponful of Ibe pulverized
ore ill Ibe test-tube and carefullv add
nitric acid, a few drops at a time at first,
so that in case violent action should take
place it Wnuld not throw the contents of
the tube out. After the ore in tbe tube
has beeu covered with the nitric acid,
warm tbe tube over tbe flame of a caudle
until the metallic portion of tbe ore has
been dissolved. Of course tbe quartz
will not enter into solution. Solution
will tak.- place in a few minutes Then
dilute the solution witb water until the
tube is about three quarters full, then
add ammonia cautiously, drop by drop.
If copper be present in the o*e, the solution will become colored blue. A large
percentage of copper will give a very
deep opaque blue—one per cent of cupper will give a much fainter shade. A
few tests made in the above manner,
compared **ith tbe assay results of tbe
ore, will educate the prospector to judge
very closely as to the amount of copper contained in his samples.—I. C.
Dubois.

News    From    All    Over   the    District
Abont Ita Mines and
Misting.
Tbe lack of transportation lu the St.
Marys rlrer country bis undoubtedly
keptltIn the the background and the
general public are not aware of the
vast mineral resources of that
region. The hope that the C. P. R.
or some otber railway company, will
build up tbe st. Marya river has led us
to post ourselves on tbe facts connected
with the mines and prospects of tbat
district more particularly becanse each
and every claim on the St. Marys Is
tributary to Marysville. Starting from
Marysville, about a mile north west of
the town Is tbe "Omlotca Group," owned by L Jones and F. Tracy. This group
haa a 4 foot lead of copper, carrying
values In gold. Th* owners have done
some thousands of dollars worth of
work on this group and have a large
quantity of dry or* ln sight. Six miles
up Mathew Creek, "Ben" Peugh has a
group of graphite claims at present
practically undeveloped.
At the head of the St. Mirys lake, 12
miles from ftarysvllle, Is altuated tbe
Howes Group of copper and galena
claims. On this group 800 feet of tun-
nelllng baa been dog*. Adjoining the
Howes Group Is the McFarlaln Group
also copper and galena properties on
which a great deal of work has been
accomplished. On the opposite side of
the lake Is the Cnrren Group which
have been held for two yeara and on
which much work baa been done. Its
values are ln copper and galena. Alkl
Creek, which empties Into the St.
Marys river just above the lake has
vast mineral resources, The Hard
Scrabble Group owned by Fred Hazen
and his associatea is a copper property
carrying values In gold on which a
great deal of work, abont 15,000 ln all
bas been expended. Adjoining the Hard
Scrabble are a number of claims owned
by 0. Hungerford Pollen, W. A
Meachem, and Robt. Dewer all of which
are like the Hard Scrabble, dry ore properties and all of which have a good
quantity of ore In sight. The John
Bull Group, another dry ore proposition
Is a property situated 16 miles up thr
river from the Smelter City, oa which
85 000 worrh of work haa been done and
which is owned by F. Tracy and H.
Bradford,
Opposite the John Ball group Is the
mouth of White Fish Creek on which
creek C. H. Pollen has a gronp of four
claims carrying copper and gold and on
which he has done a great deal olwork
On the same creek tire situated the
McKay and Guun Group, tbe Evans
Group, the Swanion and Mathers Coup
the Sunbeam Group and the Copper
King Group. These groups carry valuea
In gold, copper, silver and lead
Manv of the claims mentioned above
are crown granted.
Going up the St. Marya again we
come to the Malachite Gronp IT miles
from Maryaville. It Is owned by Chas.
Quarndatron and H B, Thompaon. Here
copper assaying 36 per cent Is found In
the form of malachite. Still further
up the river is tbe Pyrlmld camp, distanced 25 miles from Marysville. This
gronp of 14 claims all crown granted Is
owned by an English ayndlcate. Also
28 miles np from Marysville we come to
the Eaat fork ot the river on which
there are several galena and copper
properties, J, Matheson and F. E.
Vlrden are tbe namea of two men who
have steadily developed property there
for live years.
On the west fork of tha river
Is the Great Dane Gronp said to
be one of tbe largest lead deposits ln
British Columbia. J. C. Drury Is the
head of the company handling It. The
Welcome, Enterprise and Surpri.e
groups are on the west fork, owned by
J. Ercott, Murphy, Phillips and Lovat.
Abont 117.000 has bean spent on
this group and the Trail Smelter comp
any nad a bond on it two years ago, but
had to throw It up for lack of transportation.
On ths north fork of the river we find
the McLean aud Gunn Gronp consisting
0' 20 claims, carrying high valuea In
galena and copper.
Oa the south fork of the vlver we
have the Wells and Taohonaer group of
6 claims carrying copper with $25 ln
gold. Tbe King and Queen group, belonging to Qaarnstrom and Murphy.
Tne Baker aud Hai-n and the W. A
Meachem groups. Oa Office Greek 36
mi.es up the river there are a group of
24 claims which bave been beld by a
Rossland syndicate for yeara. On Blsck
Current Creek 40 miles up the liver Is a
group of copper properties held for five
years oy Marnew and Swauson,
Tne Bracebndge group Is also ln this
vicinity o-vtreii Oy S Loveit-
Ou Irish Qreeu Mountain Is the
Hooker Group which he haa held for 8
years.
We then com: to Rogers Pass tbe
lowest pass over the divide on the St.
Marys. There are many claims In the
pass all of which have been represented
for years. Space does not permit us to
mention all the claims, by any means,
on the St. Marys, but the few we bave
mentioned are enough to show tbat it
Is a mineral country with a great future
and one that would supply tonnage to
any railway building ln.

A WONDERFUL DISTRICT
South East  Kootenay Has
Unbounded Riches.
MARYSVILLE TO GET A   BIG   BENEFIT
The Building of the Smelter Will Prove
• Boom In the Whole
District.
lhe era of prosperity In South East
Kootenay bas come without a doubt.
One has only to take up the various
mining papers published ln Canada and
the United Statea, or ln fact, any newspapers published in the west to know
tkat tbis Is true. No psrt of this great
mineral producing Province Is so much
talked abont at preaent as South Erst
Kootenay.
The reason of this Is tbat this part of
the province has a greater diversity of
resources than any other, When one
looks over the district and sees the Immense coal fields to the east, the huge
gold, copper, silver and lead deposits
to the west and north, tbe wonderful
Iron mines of the Bull river country,
and the tremendous timber wealth of
the whole district one Is assured, lhat
come wbat may, South Eaat Kootenay
is all right.
Of course everybody, who has given
Che matter any thought, knows that although a country may be naturally rich,
a great deal of the prosperity of the
country rests with the people In It, For
this reason lt Is necessary tbat the
people of South East Kootenay should
"hang together" for the benefit of
South E>st Kootenay. The various Interests of this dlatrict do not, luckily,
clash with each other and thetefore
there Is no reason why tbe people who
make up our population should not pull
together; there Is no reason why petty
jealousy should exist; there is no reason
why we should not all be brothers.
Wbat Is wanted ln Soutb East Kootenay Is more abont tbe district and less
about each and every town In that dis-
trlct. We all know, at least those of
us who have been In tbe country any
length of time know, that we have a
district ln South East Kootenay, that Is
second to none in the province,therefore
ills our duty as citizens of this district
to stand by it and to give vent to our
good opinion of the district on every
opportunity.
Talking of mining, lt must be understood that although we have a cumber
of shipping mines withtn the district,
still tbere are hundreds of properties
tbat have not reached the development
stage of which greatness may be expect
ed. We all look for a great Impetus to
the mining industry this summer.
Everything points that way. The older
properties are taking on new life, and
a very large number of new properties
will be exploited. Unbounded wealth
Is buried In these mountains of ours.
To dig It out Is the next thing.    '
As to silver-lead mlnlng,ln particular,
we all known that tbe low price of lead
has been a stumbling block In the
road of S.uih East Kootenay's development, because the district Is very largly
a silver-lead district. Tbe Sullivan
Gronp Mining company have been the
first to see through what seemed to
most people to be a "stone wall."
As the mountain would not come to
Mahomet they have taken Mahomet to
the mountain, In other words they
find they can make a good profit on
their .liver lead ore by smelting and
refining lt ln the country of its production whereas they could not do so by
shipping lt to foreign smelters. That
Is why the Sullivan company Is building
tbe first lead smelter In Eist Kootenay
and the first lead refinery ln Canada at
Marysville, British Columbia.
The Sullivan company areundobtedly
the first to go Into the smelting business
In this district but they will, by no
means, be the laat. When other mines
see tne success that the Sullivan will
make by smelling and refining tbelr
own ores, many others will follow suit
until In the near future, this South
East Kootenay of ours will have not
one smelter but a doien or more dotted
over the country from Its esstern to Its
western and from its northern to Its
southern boundaries.
".Mines are Made, Not Found."
Occasionally, as the aaylng is a mine
pays from the "grass roots". This is a
very rare exception, says the Black
Hills Mining U-view. Tbe records of
the largest mines of today all show tbat
many thousands, and In some cases.
millions of dollars were expended for
machinery and labor to open up ihi ore
bodies, sufficiently for their economical
and profitable working,before tne mines
paid expenses and dividends. Every
one knows that time and money must be
put into large undertakings ln every
other business, before the profits can
be expected; and It Is equally so in
mlnini;. But the ultimate profits ln
mining are many times greater than
' tbe pntln In any other business.

Ping long le Hard Work.
From the Herald—
The editor ol thia moral sheet has
succumbed to the craze and played two
games of ping pong, and be wanta to say
right here that tbe game is not arranged
with a proper consideration of a man'a
physical welfare. The playing is all
ri|jht. bit when it comes to picking up
the balls—well, a man cannot chase one
ot tho-e little devils around under tab-
les, chairs and couches and remain a
consistent christian. Talk about the
Irishman's flea! It is not to be com*
pared with one ot those little celluloid
arrangements. Just when you think
you have bold of It, you see it taking on
I new life and calmly rolling out of reach.
j If a man bad a rubber neck, a rubber
I back and a rubber abdomen, he might
' play the game with less discomfort.
But for an ordinary Individual to play, it
means suffering intense and woes untold.
Ping pong Is a great game—to look at.
Father Cocola In Rossland.
Rev. Father Welch haa entertained'
for several daya an Interesting guest
In the person of Father Cocola, rector
to tbe Indians of tbe St. Eugene mission. Fatber Cocola Is well known In
Rossland, aud the principal features'
which have brought hla name to tho
front are ao familiar by repetition as
to be a matter of history with sll old'
residents of the city and district.
Tbe St. E'igena mission, over wnlch
Father Cocola presides, ia probably tha
most flourishing Institution of Its kind
In the province, and the Interesting
feature tn connection therewith Is that
the mission received Its first substantial
start through tha dlsoovery of the
great St. Eugene mine, now ranked
among the largest silver-lead properties'
on the continent. Th* cropplngs were
shown to Father Cocola by an Indian
whom he had befriended, and the
claims ware staked by a friend oi
Father Cocola's, Jamas Cronln. now'
general manager of th* St. £ugenc
Conaolldated company. Father Cocola'
sold his lntereat In tbe property for a
substantial sum and this waa Invested
In the commadlooa aod permanent buildings ln which tha mission Is now housed. Wltb theae adtantagca the mission
haa been enabled to prosecute Its work

|A QUEER
1  C0URT8HIP!
Tall? Yes, very. Sho stood a head
above ttie average ninu.
Blight? No. That is too poetical a
word tu ho in nny way applied to the
heroine of this little tale, whoso lean,
scrawny figure looked for nil the world
like n sei'it'H of badly connected angles
and whose stooping shoulders and narrow chest were clad iu a faded black
jacket.
This garment, with its rusty surface
nnd pulled sen ins, suited well the sad
looking woman into whose dreary life
came one little hit of color, which I shall
try to describe.
-Her face corresponded well with the
rest of her appearance, for it was faded
nnd worn nnd surrounded by n fringe of
straight, dusty brown hair pulled tightly
back from the sallow, weary face, whose
one redeeming feature was the eyes-
dork gray ami oh, so sad!
She bad thnt expression of wistful
waiting .sometimes seen In the eyes of a
faithful dog who has lost its master and
seems ever to wait always patiently and
to watch ever expectantly for tho beloved
face.
She was a Norwegian, named Etta,
and lived in our family as cook for
nearly a year.

which had brought ber to us, shed leafy
tears nnd departed suddenly, leaving us
nil unprepared for winter's advent, which
announced itself in a cold, dismal rain.
Up to this time Etta hnd never received
n letter or any communication from the
outside world. She never loft the house
anil scorned the idea of an afternoon out.
However, on this grizzly day tiiere was
a surprise, a great surprise, for Etta was
discovered holding an open letter tightly
grasped in one hand. But wheu she
found herself regarded it was hastily
thrust iuto a voluminous pocket iu her
skirt.
Now, this pocket wns a marvel la Itself,
as it could hold myriads of things. Why,
one day I saw her produce a pillowcase,
a work box, scissors nnd brass thimble
at oue fell swoop; at another time—but 1
am wandering far away from the letter
and its consequences.
The mysterious epistle was Been several
times again, nnd these glimpses showed it
lo be worn and rumpled with much reading. No doubt it would have been rend
and reread out of existence bad not another, fresh nnd clean, replaced the first.
This 1 took from the postman and so
bail a chance to see the uneven, characterless writing, the Christianin postmark
nnd Norwegian stamp. It wns followed
n week later by another, then another,
I became interested, for I felt I was on
the track of a real live romance.
The pale, tired face seemed to grow
brighter in those days, nnd for the lirst
time Etta made frequent trips to the city,
returning laden witb bundles of every
size ond description, All her spare time
wns now employed in sewing. Calicoes
and prints were made ami laid aside. For
some reason or other Etta was replenishing her clean but scant and somewhat
dilapidated wardrobe.
Another link In the chain, thought I,
and began to imagine tbe arrival of a
stalwart Norwegian lover left in Norway two years before, when she had
come to try her fortune in America.
Letters came more frequently, and
Klin grew correspondingly brighter and
cheerier—she even seemed to try to hold
herself more erectly, for often the bent
shoulders were suddenly straightened ns
lhe went about her work. Her voice,
formerly so tired and hopeless, took on ■
more cheerful tone.
Not the lenst remarkable of Etta's
peculiarities was her manner of speaking. Slowly nnd lispiugly came the
broken English, which was at first so
hard to understand. Such a sad mixture
of her mother tongue and this new,
strange language, such verbal complications nnd misplaced plurals, were never
beard before.
About this time I mentioned my romantic notions to ray mother, but she
only laughed, being entirely unable to
connect Etta's sad appearance with a
lover, Norwegian or of any other land.
She called me a romancer, but 1 still felt
sure I was right.
Sooner thau I expected came the
chance to vindicate myself, for the next
dny as I sat idly by the window watching
the passersby my attention was attracted by a queer little figure way down the
street which came on toward the house
nt a rattling pace, gayly swinging a huge
nine and pulling vigorously at a mammoth cigar. At a distance It wns impossible to toll whether be was a boy or
man, such a comical little figure he was,
dressed in a snuff colored suit, with a
rose in his buttonhole und tho tiniest
llerby imaginable tilted over one ear.
Gazing laughingly at him, I was just
telling my mother to look at thnt absurd
little creature when what was our surprise to sec Etta, the staid, the quiet,
dash wildly across the lawn, rush wildly
to the goto nnd, throwing her arms
nbout the little fellow's neck, kiss blm
lirst (in one cheek nnd then on the other.
Tbe mnr», after n few quiet but earnest
struggles, managed to free him ^lf from
her long, thin arms and looked up into
Iter face, so high nbove bim, with pleasure surely, but without a trace of loverlike ardor.
On closer inspection It proved to be
such a funny, rosy, childish face that it
was impossible to look nt it without
laughing. Etta seemed to find it so, for,
smiling happily, she escorted him back
to the house, her long arm linked In his
abort one, almost lifting him from the
ground nt every step, and presently we
heard the low monotone of their voices
in the kitchen below.
Not the lenst queer thing about thin
queerest of queer men was, a yellow
shock of hair plastered down in carefully
arranged scallops all around his chubby
face. I suppose It never occurred to
him that the hack of his head was ever
seen, for there the hair stood straight out
in bristly points.
Soon Etta appeared and, blushing and
hesitating, said, "My cousin haf corned
from Christianin."
That was all, but my theory was proved, and I made use of tbat timsworn ant)
Aggravating phrase,  "Wfhat did  1  tell j
you 7"
Days came and went and so did the
little Norwegian, but nothing wfls *aid of
an approaching marriage. Parcels poured in upon us, and Etta sewed steadily
on. Each afternoon Auguste (we learned
his name) appeared, apparently propelled
by the regular motion of his cane. Somehow he always appeared like a pieco of
machinery, for his appearance never
changed—always the snuff colored suit,
the little hat and the buttonhole bouquet.
And he seemed to go and come mechanically, enveloped in a cloud of smoke
puffed from the big cigar.
Etta owned one thing strangely out of
keeping with her other possessions. It
was a large gold watch attached to an
old fashioned chain from which dangled
two or three odd foreign looking charms
of fine workmanship. Sho was very fond
of it, as it had belonged to her mother,
nnd wore it always, till at last it seemed
almost a part of herself. Seeing her
without it one day I exclaimed immediately, as I thought she must hnve lost it.
She waited a moment before replying
and then said slowly, "I haf lend it to
my cousin,"
She then told me tbat Auguste was a
barber by trade and had come to America
with money she had sent him for the
trip.
After the disappearance of tho watch
Auguste came less frequently and as
time went on seldom appeared oftener
than once a week. There was no more
sewing, and Etta began to look more as
of old. Little by little tho happy light
faded from her face and tho gray eyes
became sadder by contrast perhaps than
before.
A time came when weeks passed without a sign of the little Norwegian, but
one day a letter arrived for Etta in the
same crooked writing. Some time later
in tho day, going into tho kitchen, I
ft.uld Etta leaning on tho table, tho lot-
tor crumpled in her clinched hands and
her face buried in her arms.
I touched her gently on the shoulder,
but got no other response than the low,
stifled sobs which shook the poor, thin
body from head to foot. At last she
raised her Borrow stricken face nnd lifting her eyes to mine, snid slowly, with
her lisping accent: "I havo to go vay.
I haf sorrow, great sorrow."
She would tell but little of her story.
She was to hnve married her cousin in a
few weeks' time, but ho had tired of her,
and thnt day a letter had come from
him, first begging her to forgive him and
then telling her that he hnd sold her
treasured watch and by the time sbe got
that letter would have salted on a vessel
bound for Norway,
"Shall you, too, go home?" I said.
Slowly nnd sadly came the answer,
"No." and I felt that with the utterance
of that tittle word she gave up nil hope
ond renounced forever all thought of the
happiness sho had been picturing for
herself the last few months as she sat
sewing steadily, only pausing now and
then, with a little flush In her pale cheeks,
to softly steal a hand into her pocket
nnd touch the letters sho always carried
there.
Next morning Etta could not be found.
In a corner of her room stood a little
hair trunk labeled with a Norwegian address ami filled with the garments so
recently finished. It was corded up and
sent to Christianin. It may have reached
its destination or lt may not. Its fate
is as uncertain as Etta's own. The poor
woman, tired, disappointed and hopeless,
had vanished that night, taking with her
little else than her sad, sad thoughts.
I often picture her with her stooping
shoulders and pallid, tear stained face,
eery vestige of love and hope gone out,
wandering nway into the night and gazing up at the stars, so serene and far
nway as she murmurs, "Forsaken, forsaken!"
Roles For Writer*.
The following rules Sir Walter Besant
drew up for bis own guidance:
Practice writing some original thing every dny. ^
Cultivate the habit of observation.
Work regularly at certain hours.
Itead no t-Jbbish.
Aim at the formation of style.
Endeavor to be dramatic.
A great element of dramatic skill Is
selection. .
Avoid the sin of writing about a character.
Never attempt to describe any kind of
life except that with which you are familiar.
Learn as much as you can about men
and women.
Eor the sake of forming a good natural
style nnd acquiring command of language, write poetry.
-the Farm Repair Minis.
I oftiin wonder how I pot along
without a repair shop, writes J. P.

The building - need not ho expensive, but tight and warm. Ono cjid
Should be rigged up for blucksinitb-
ing. Iluild a hearth of stone and
ordinary clay mortar, with a good-
sized flue, about nine bricks to the
round. An opening should bo left at
the proper place for the admission
of a 5 or 6-inch stove pipe. Procure a blower or bellows, an anvil,
a drill press, a vise, some dies and
tops, i to J inch, for cutting thread,
a hammer, tongs and two or three
sizes of beading tools. Steel
punches for hot iron nre also necessary,  but these can be made*
After some experience, many other tools can be made that come
handy. Much of the equipment mentioned can often be gotten secondhand from machinists or blacksmiths. Collect all kinds of scrap
Iron, bolts, old horseshoes, etc.,
from about tbe farm. Much useful
iron may often bu gotten for a trifle
nt public sales. Old horseshoes
welded together and worked out are
very useful for making nails, rivets,
links for chains, etc. 1 have been
using for several years a heavy farm
chain made entirely from old horseshoes. As to the nctual work in
this line, many valuable bints may
be gotten from a good-natured
blncksmit.h. One mny need instruction particularly on the Working and
tempering of steel. Eor a time tho
novice may bo discouraged by his
seeming awkwardness, but after be
gets the set of his hammer nnd the
hang of his tongs, some experience
in welding, etc., there will be little
repairing that need be taken awny
from the farm.
Put in tbe other end of tho building a bench or table. Provide a
eross-cu t hand saw, nine teeth to
the inch, a square, a smoothing, a
jack and a fore plane, a brace witfi
at lenst seven bits differing in size
| inch, three or four sizes of chisels,
a drawing knife, miter square and a
hand ax or bench hatchet. A supply of different sized nails nnd wood
screws. Tbis will equip the woodworking end of the shop for all ordinary repairing. Many new implements can be made and ironed
complete Inter. Now get or mako a
sewing or Sadler's horse, procure
some needles, wax and thread, harness rivets, etc. Put up a stove,
fix up the harness and gather the
plows, harrows and other implements that need repairs.
What Total Abstinence Does.
At the mines nf ICntfckmahon, in
the County of Waterford, Ireland, at
the time Father Matthew visited that
place about 1.00 persons were employed, 80 of whom signed the
pledge. Previous to the tune when
they became teetotalers, their monthly earnings were £900 ($4,500),
Soon after nt the same work and
with apparently as much mm. they
earned £.2,300 ($11,500) in the
same period of time. Add to this
gain £400 ($2,000) in wages, £500
($2,500) more which it was estimated they had heretofore spent monthly in the public house, and we have
a positive improvement in the pecuniary resources of tho industrious people to the extent of £900 ($4,500)
per month.
One of the teachers of the City of
Waterford states that within two
years after the people of Waterford
had entered upon the temperance reform "Tlie working part of the community had in their cottages i.iid
rooms. over 1,000 pounds sterling
($5,000) more value in furniture and
clothing than they had before they
took the pledge."
From this single instance, too how
happy and prosperous might be the
condition of workingmen in all parts
of the world if they would (nly let
drink alone.

H II   M«t   Difficult   to Ulicnver fur What
Om UM m Natural Aptitude.
"One good way, I think, to Judge
whether we have a talent for anything or not is to watch the motive
that draws us toward doing a thing,"
writes Helen WaUerson Moody, ifa
The Ladies' Home Journal.
"If we do it because it is the fashion, or because other girls aro doing
it, or because we have to do it for
some useful purpose, it is not probable that we have a real talent for
it ; but if we find ourselves doing it
just because wo really love it, and
would rather do it than not : if it
is doing the thing itself that attracts us, and not the eclut it is go-
i»g to give us in the eves of others-
why then I think we may reasonably
conclude that God has given us a
real talent for that particular sort
of thing."   "

% Like most people. I have always
supposed that women were more superstitious than men. but after what
1 saw yesterday 1 am not so sure
about it. A leaning ladder was
what caused me to change my mind
about the relal Ive SUperBtitloUsnoss
of the sexes, mid the time taken was
probably not more than ten minutes.
The ladder in the caso bad been leaned against the front of one of Toronto's leading dry goods bouses, and
it. was not till after I bad walked
carefully outside it myself that 1
thought of making a test case of It.
TwjQ well dressed women came
first, and they unhesitatingly walked
undor the bidder, perhaps because
they were studying the goods displayed in the windows so intently
that they never noticed it* A young
business man followed. J le appeared
to be in a brown study, but woke
With a start ns he nenred the ladder,
and steered carefully around it. Two
poorly-dressed women came next, nnd
they both went outside the ladder;
they weren't interested in the goods
displayed in the windows. A small
boy carrying a parcel came along
then and steered carefully outside,
but a fair und willowly maiden held
her course serenely. Three men followed in single tile, nnd they all
walked wide of the ladder, while two
single females walked nonchalantly
under it, and that was about the
way it went as long as I kept my
vigil. More men dodged that leaning ladder than women, the proportion being nbout thrci! to one. It
may be that there are other superstitions in which women would not
show up so well, but certainly as far
ns the leaning ladder superstition is
concerned they made a most creditable showing in this instance.—-Hev-

Jolnta   Yon  t'nn't Curve*
One of the most lucrative trades on the
continent of Europe Is that of tho "dummy" maker. There is hardly a town of
any size that does not boast at least half
a dozen representatives of this calling.
Not long since a London police court case
revealed tho fuct that the huge cheeses
to be seen ln provision shops are seldom
real, but it is doubtful whether the deception extends much further.
On the continent nil the cheaper butchers make a brave show in artificial joints,
because they find thnt succulent sirloins,
shapely lega and elegant shoulders greatly stimulate trade. As a rule the trade
in dummy joints is worked on the hire
system, the artist calling for his imitations on Monday in order that their pristine freshness may be restored, returning
them on Wednesday or Thursday.—London Telegraph,

An undue appreciation of one's own Importance Is as disastrous in its results as
utter luck of self esteem. It is really
evidence of a narrow mind and ignorance
of general conditions, for the man who is
up to the times, thoroughly posted in regard to the worldwide trend of tho twentieth century, will realize that there are
very few people in the world, no matter
what their talents or ahility, who cannot ho replaced. It is a very rare character, indeed, that is imperatively necessary, and the man who actually reaches
this point does not brag of it or act as if
ho considered himself "indispensable.' —

The Traatment of Mare..
It is advisable, In fact very important that mares which are intended to be worked should bo fed
in the box with tho foals a short
time before, so as to get the latter
well accustomed to eating crushed
oats, bran, etc., so that the separation will be less keenly felt by them,
and eating will occupy the tlmt
and minimize the risk of taking too
much milk on an empty stomach. A
drop of clean water should also lu-
placed when; lt can bo got at, but
not split, and two foals will do better together than separately, if they
are not shut, in too small a place.
If they spend the day in a warm box
and tho night In a field exposed to
the weather, a nasty cold may be
the result; therefore, if the night
should be very unpropitious niter a
hot day, it is wise to keep both mnrc
and foal in an open shed or yard
with a bit of green food rather than
run  the  risk  of exposure.

next day on a train he asked him how
he acquired his wonderful logical powers and such acuteness In analysis.
Lincoln replied: "It wns my terrible
discouragement which did that for me.
When I was a young man, I went Into
an office to study law. I saw that a

when Is n thing proved?' That wns a
poser. What constitutes proof? Not
evidence; thnt was not the point.
Tbere mny be evidence enough, but
wherein consists tho proof? I groaned
over the question, and finally said to
myself, *Ah, Lincoln, you enn't tell.'
Then I thought what use Is It for me
to be in a law office if I can't tell when
a thing le proved"?

CURING THE BLUES.
Just Try TnrnlntT Up the Corners of
Yoar Blonth.
A well known doctor of Minneapolis
who bas made a specialty of nervous
diseases has found a new remedy for
tho "blues." As no drugs are administered, be hns felt safe In experimenting with nt least a half hundred melancholy patients and now declares himself thoroughly satisfied with the good
results of his treatment. His prescription rends something like this: "If you
keep the corners of your mouth turned
up, you can't feel blue." The directions for taking nre, "Smile, keep on
smiling, don't stop smiling." It sounds
ridiculous, doesn't It? Well, just try
turning up the corners of your mouth,
regardless of your mood, and see bow
lt makes you feel. Then draw the corners of your moutb down and note tha
effect, and you will bo willing to declare "there's something In It."
Tbe doctor treats bis nervous patients to medicine wben necessary,
but when tbo case Is ono of pure melancholy, without bodily Ul, be simply
recommends the smile cure. He bas
the patient remain ln bis office and
smile. If It Isn't the genuine article, It
must at least be an upward curvature
of the comers of the moutb, and tbe
better feelings follow Inevitably. The
treatments are followed up regularly,
and the patients all testify to their
good effect. It takes considerable persuasion to Induce some of tbem to apply the cure, and of course the greater
number of patients are women, for
when a mnn Is blue he Is bound to be
blue in spite of everything, but a woman Is more easily persuaded to try to
find a cure.
Tho doctor declares tbat tf persons
will ouly draw down tbe corners of

THE VALUE OF PAIN.
It Calls Attention to the Fact That
Dleeaae Exleta.
Pain is not disease; it Is a symptom
calling attentlou to the fact that disease exists. We do not remove tbe disease by stopping the pain.
Headaches usually arise from disturbances lu digestion, due to overeating,
eating freely of soft foods, too much of
a variety at meals, etc. Fermentation
and decny of the foods with tho formation of poisons nnd irritnnts result. Tbo
danger is reported nt headquarters. The
thing to do Is to heed the voice of the
faithful sentinel, assist nature to get rid
of tho impurities generated, cither by
washing out the stomach, drinking freely
of water, fasting for n day, hy vigorous
exercise or ellmluattvo baths. Recognize in tho pnln the voice of a friend
railing attention to thi, fact that wo
hnve done wrong and resolve never to
violnte the laws of health on this point
agnin. la a dny or so the transgressor
would feel well nnd would be able to
keep from getting into the same or a
worse condition by avoiding the causes.
This is not tho wny these symptoms
are usually treated. I'ain is looked upon
as an enemy, not ns the voice of a friend.
The sick one goes to a physician and demands something that will stupefy or
paralyse tho nerves—the pnln must stop
nt once. Ho is given an opiate; the pnln
stops; the food still keeps on decaying
in tho stomach; he Imagines he Is well.
The -disease still exists; the symptom
alono has been removed. The faithful
sentinel hns been knocked down. The
means of telegraphic communication to
hendqunrters hnve been severed. The enemy has his own way and.Is able to go
ahead undisturbed in his destructivo
work. The watchers nre nslecp under an
anaesthetic or opiate. Tho enemy enters
the camp. Poisons thnt nre gencrntcd
In the stomach through errors in diet
overwork and irritate the liver, the lungs
nnd kidneys, through which they aro
eliminated, and linnlly result In Bright's
tllsense, or the lungs, being weakened,
arc not nhlc to resist the germs of dis*
case thnt are iahaled. He falls a victim-
to tuberculosis nnd is now in ■ serious.
If not an incurable, condition.
The only snfo wny is to study the bu*
mnn body and becomo fnmilinr with the
laws upon which health, happiness and
life depend. Prevent pnlus, woe and
sickness by avoiding their causes.
The Flight of the Stork.
The sork is a remarkably picturesque bird. Its snowy body contrasting
with the bright red beak and legs and
black quill feathers of the wings make
It a striking object The flight is magnificent, bolder and more buoyant thnn
that of a heron. Like most large birds,
Its powers of flight show best wben
it Is at a great height When we were
on the Bastei rock, In Saxon Switzerland, a pair passed overhead, flying
southward. Though high above us,
we could clearly see the black pinion
feathers, and as we watched the
powerful beat of the wide spreading
wings we thought of the angels In
Zechttriah's vision who bnd "wings
like the stork."
The Dnnd.
The bund Is the name given In almost all eastern seaports to tbe street
fronting on the water. This street Is
usually the trade center, and rumors
that are likely to affect trade or political coudtloris fly thick and fast
about lt. As most of these are unfounded, It Is the habit In the orient
to call a story whose authenticity is
doubted "bunder."
Metropolitan Sidelights.'*
In speaking of the features of city life
that are incomprehensible to country people a successful  publisher snid:
"An apartment bouse which contains
ten or more families stands next to my
house. The cheapest npartmeats in it
rent for $2,51)0 n year. A man who can
afford to pay $2,1300 a year rent should
hnve an Income of nt least $10,000, and
tho presumption is thnt bis Income is
more than that. I am familiar wltb
New York names and yet when 1 bad an
opportunity to look over the list of names
of men who lived in this apartment house
there wns not ouo on the list witb which
I wns familiar. I never had heard of any
of them. Here were ten men who lived
next door to me, each of them having an
income that would mean wealth in the
country, nnd none of them was known to
me. It is by such sidelights as this that
one may get an Idea of tbe wealth of this
city."-
The Heron Heats High.
Heron colonies ore rare enough to excite interest In their location and the peculiarities of tho nest building ot these
-birds. They live ond rear tbelr young
year after year at tho same place, naless
some catastrophe In bird life or the intrusion of unwelcome residents causa
them to move.
Thero are three known heron colonies
in New England. One of them Is on tho
plantation just to the north of Sebee lake.
Oa a point of land renching out Into tbo
pond is a growth of tall silver birches,
nnd there are at least one hundred nests
In tho tops ot those trees. The trees aro
tall, without limbs for forty feet or more
from the ground. It is a well known fact
thnt herons never build a nest in a treo
with limbs much less thnn forty feet from
tho earth. Tho nests are constructed
from smnll sticks. The nest Is st least
two feet across.
IF YOU HAVE ASTHMA
Bronchitis, or a Severe Cold on the Chest and Lungs, Doctors will Point yoti to Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed
and Tnrpentine as the most Effective Treatment.
For every class ol disease there is ono medicine that stands pre-eminent as being superior to all others.
Tn tho caso of Asthma, Bronchitis, and all throat and lung ailments the recognized treatment Is Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine. Doctors do not hesitate to say that when ths patient becomes flushed and
exasperated In his struggle for breath, wheezes loudly and experiences Intense np-ony in his chest and lungs
there is no preparation available that will give such prompt and thorough relict as
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
Mrs. Oeorgo Buddon, I'utnamvlllo, Ont., says :i-"I feel It my duty to recormnend Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, ns I had the Asthma very bad ; could get nothing to do mo any good.     A friend of mine

am thankful today to say I am a well woman through the uso of this remedy.   I keep it In tho bouse all tho
timo and would not bo without it."
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine Is so well known In the homes of Canada that lt uecms unnecessary to add further comment, but a word of warning may be needed. There aro other preparations of

Till each of us was proud to be a Pohlck-on-the.

Badness Explained.
In Liverpool recently a sentimental
young lady was on the Cunard steamship quay when she saw a young girl
sitting on a trunk In an attitude of utter dejection and despair.
"l'oor thlug!" thought the romantic
lady. "She Is probably alone and a
stranger. Her pale cheeks and great.
Bad eyes tell of a broken heart and a
yearning fur sympathy." So she went
over to the traveler to win her coutl-
donce.
"Crossed In love?" she asked sympathetically.
"No," replied the girl, with a sigh,
"crossed lu the Servla, and an awfully
rough passage too."

ADVICE TO MOTHERS.
How to Keep the Bafcy Healthy and
Happy—Avoid Uu* Bo-called
Soothing Medicines.
Every mother is naturally solicitous as to the health of her children, but not everyone treats their
little troubles in the rig-lit way. The
so-called soothing remedies are still
used altogether too much, although
physicians have preached against
thorn for many years. The fact lhat
they put children to sleep is no sign
that they are helpful. On the contrary, soothing drugs arc dangerous
and distinctly harmful. At the
slightest sign of ill-health or disorder, give tho little ones Baby's
Own Tablets. The medicine is purely vegetable, and is guaranteed to
contain no opiate or poisonous
Soothing stuff. For indigestion, sour
stomach, colic, constipation, simple
fevers, diarrhoea, tho irritation accompanying the cutting of teeth,
thero can be no better, no safer remedy than this. Baby's Own Tablets
are a sweet, pleasant littlo tablet
which any child will take readily,
and dissolved in water, may be given
with absolute safety to tho youngest
infant. Mothers who have used those
tablets cheerfully testify to lhe benefit their littlo ones have derived from
thorn Mrs. U. L. McFarlane, Bristol,
Que., says : " In my estimation
Paliy's Own Tablets have no equal
as a medicine for little ones, lu
cases of children teething I would
not be without them on any account,
as thoy keep my baby healthy and
happy." Druggists keep them, but
if you cannot lind them conveniently;
send 25 cents direct to us and we
will forward a box by mail prepaid.

and giving life to the digestive organs, which

NOT A SUCCESS.
Why the Minliiter Foiled to Go on on
Expected Vacation.
"Our minister'did not go on his vacation this summer a" he expected," snif!
Bro-ftrn. with an amused smile, .'Tie fully
intended to and had made his arrangements to thnt effect. But cireu-jistaucns
over which he hnd no control were such
thnt he decided at the last minute to stay
at home.
"My wife and several ether enthusiastic women members of the church hit
upon the happy Idea of raising a fund
si:Hicieiit to defray the good man's expenses, as he has a large family and finds
it difficult to make both ends meet. With
this in view they beld several 'affairs,'
nnd at lost were tho proud possessors of
something over $60- Then they decided
to make tho presentation a gala event
and give the members of the church a
chance to send thu Hev. Mr. Blank away
with the good wishes of the whole con*
«rr gat ion.
"lt occurred to my wife that a little
music would add tu the happy occasion,
and she saw that some musicians were
engaged. Another member of the committee thought that a light lunch would
be a happy idea und took it upon herself
to see that It was ordered. Another one
conceived the plan of having the church
decorated for the auspicious occasion uie!
hired a man to do the work.
"Early In the eveuing when they met
to compare notes they discovered, to their
horror, that their expenses had not only
eaten up the amount that they hod raised,
but bad left them o matter of two or
three dollars in debt, so the presentation
had to he omitted.
"I asked my wife who sho expected

MATTER AND FORCE.
ENERGY CANNOT  BE CREATED NOR
CAN IT BE DESTROYED.
If Pony Man Could Aocompliah Either of These Impo.alble Tiling..
Be Could Came "(be Wreck of Matter and the Craah of World.."
If you could Imagine nn earthworm
trying to run the Niagara Electric
Lighting and Power Transmission
works, you would have some faint idea
of tlie capacity of the greatest human
genius that ever lived tu run Uie vislhlc
universe. That is probably why the
wisest of us Is not permitted to understand the final secrets of nature.
Here Is a good example. Take a rifle
Into a plate sufficiently far from the
habitations of men; put tlie butt on the
ground nnd support It so Hint the barrel points straight up and pull the trigger. T*>ic bullet will leave the muzzle
with a Telocity of, sny. y.uOO feet n second. It will rise to nn enormous
height, come to a standstill for au In*
llnlteslmnl fraction of a second nnd begin to fall bnck ngnln. It will strike
the enrth with very nearly but not
quite the same velocity ns It left the
muzzle of the gun. It would be exactly the same but for tho resistance of
the air.
What has happened Is this: Tho explosion of the powder lias changed a
solid Into a gas, nud the expansive energy of this lias driven the bullet upward. In oilier words. It has for the
time overcome that mysterious force
by which the enrth draws everything
toward Its own center.
But when the energy of the exploded
powder Is exactly balanced by the pull
of gravitation the bullet fnlls back. In
the first second after Its turn it falls
10 feet, lu the next 32, In the next 04,
In the next 12S, and so on till lt returns
with ever Increasing velocity whence
It started.
Nothing has been lost, nothing gained. The gases set free by the explosion of the powder weigh exnetly aa
much as the solid. Some of the energy
hns been used as beat, some In propelling the bullet Grnvltntion, overcome
for awhile, has reasserted itself. The
Bum of matter and force In tbe universe Is absolutely unchanged.
Tbla Is ns true of the quickened beat
of a girl's heart wben she meets her
lover as It is of the inarch of the planets nud suns through the fields of space.
Every atom of matter, every unit of
force, throughout the universe Is constant, external nnd exactly balanced,
and the whole strength and genius of
humanity could not Incrense or diminish them by tbe slightest fraction.
Now, let us Imagine what would happen If man could make that bullet
strike the earth with greater or less
force thau It left the muzzle of the gun.
He would cither hnve increased or decreased the total of universal energy,
and ln either ense ho would have
thrown first the solnr system and then
tbe whole universe out of gear.
The earth and all the other planets
would begin to revolve ln different orbits. The sun, with Its family of worlds,
would alter its path round the unknown center about which It revolves.
Then world would be hurled against
world nnd sun against sun, nnd stars
and planets would be reduced to the
flaming gases from which they cooled
into solids nnd liquids before time began to be.
Just the same catastrophe would bap-
pen If man could cither create or entirely destroy a grain of sand on the
seashore. The balance of the universe,
ln which swing stars and planets,
whose weight is Inexpressible In human
figures (this tiny world of ours weighs
6,0OO,06o,OOO,0OO,00O,0OO,OOO tons), Is infinitely more delicate than thnt which
tho chemist bas to keep In nn airtight
case and nt nn even temperature lest a
breath of air should throw it out of
gear.
Tbus the destruction or creation of a
grain of sand would change tbe orbit
of the earth round tbe sun. In tin
one case it would be drawn closer nnd
closer lo tbe sun, perhaps after thou-
sands of revolutions to be swallowed
up In fiery ruin, lu the other case It
would gradually leave the sun and year
by year wander further away Into regions of space where human life would
be Impossible.
Tbe result of tbe dislocation of such
a stupendous sys'em, which bis worked with unfailing exactitude for countless nges, Is, of course, utterly beyond
the scope of liumiin Imagination, and
yet such a seeming trifle as tbe creation
or destruction of a single grain of sand
might, and probably would, olunge It
Into utter chaos nud ruin.

THE WIDOW TAX.
tn   Mindanao   a  Wife'.   Death   Coat.
the Widower One Hundred Platea.
Becoming a widow or a widower Is a
much more serious business thnn getting married among sonic >f the tribes
In the Philippines. Iu Mindanao "marrying In haste" often leads to n prolonged "repenting at leisure," for they
have an institution there kuown as the
"widow tax"—"chabaloan" the natives
call It. Upon the death of the wife the
widower must pay a certain sum of
money or Its equivalent in goods to his
father-in-law before he can go n-court-
Ing again. As money Is a scarce article
among tliSse natives, the tnx generally
is paid In plates of common "stone chl*
nn," which nre much used by the natives as a medium of exchnnge. It Is
considered tlie proper tiling for tbe bc-
renved one to pny 100 of these plates to
his father-in-law for permission to look
about him for a successor to tlie de-
"cased helpmate.
If the husband dies, the widow at
once becomes the property of her par.
ents-ln-lnw aud so remains for life unless somo relative comes forward and
produces the necessary number of dinner plates. The natural result of this
Is thnt married people are nil extremely solicitous for the ben lib of each other. In sickness tbe Invalid is sedulously attended by the partner of his or
her joys and sorrows, the well person
perhaps being moved more by the
thought of those buudred plates than
by renl affection. ,
Divorce Is unknown nmong these people, but a man may have as many
wives ns he pleases. It will be seen
that In case of an epidemic which
would sweep nway his wives a married
man would be iu dire extremity. In
the case of a death of a much married
man his parents come Into a smnll fortune, for they cither have enough
slaves to render future work on their
part unnecessnry or they receive enough
plates from the families of the widows
to set up n crockery store.
DWARFING AN OAK TREE.
The Jannncae Trick by Which It la
Acconinllahed.
The Chnbo HIbn, a dwarf Japanese
pine tvee, wns recently sold for $1,200.
It Is six feet high nud alleged to be 850
years old. It hns long been supposed
thnt the process by which Japanese
gardeners succeeded in dwarfing forest
trees was n long nud costly one. It Is
now snid that It is a simple process and
that any oue enn do tbe trick. Tbe following directions are given for pioduc-
ing n miniature oak tree:
Take an orange and scoop out the
pulp. Fill the Interior wltb a rich mold
and plant nn neorn In tbe center of It,
leaving the bole In the rind for It to
sprout through. Put lt In a sunny place
and water It frequently. Soon after
the first shoots have appeared the roots
begin to break through tne orange skin.
Take a sharp knife and shave these off
cnrefully and keep them shaved. The
tree will grow about five or six Inches
high nnd then stop. In a year It will
be a perfect miniature oak. When the
roots cease to grow, the orange skin
should be varnished over nnd Imbedded In n flowerpot.
The Japanese dwnrf nil kinds of trees
and mnke them live to a great age.
Some of these dwarfs, like the Chabo
Illlra, are well known, aud their owners have documentary evidence attesting their great nge. Tlie older they
are the more valuable, of course, they
are. In Japan certain families follow
the calling, trade, art, or what you will,
of growing dwnrf trees from generation to generation, nnd you can buy a
miniature oak 500 years old from a descendant of the man wbo first planted
the acorn. Not only forest trees, but
fruit trees and flowering shrubs, are
dwarfed by these clever gardeners.

"No man Cin ever hope to be a strong
swimmer unless he cultivates the power of endurance lu the.water," soys a
professional. "It costs' me no more
exertion to swim for an hour than It
lines to walk for the same period of
time.
"Iu swimming a mnn should time his
stroke with his breathing. lie should
take but one stroke to each breath. In
tliis way the muscles of the body work
In conjunction with the lungs, nnd no
energy Is wasted. In snlt water, which,
of course, Is more buoyant than fresh
wnter, n man who hns trained himself
In this way should hnve no difficulty In
keeping nlloat, sny he were shipwrecked, until sheer weakness from hunger
and thirst would force blm to succumb."

Most housekeepers have wondered what
tbe white powder covering the nutmeg Is.
An old spice denier Is authority that as
soon ns the nutmeg is gathered it Is rolled
in a lime made from burned oyster shells
in order to prevent its destruction hy the
weevil, and It is this dust that remains
upon It.
Muce Is one of the outer coverings of
tbe nutmeg and is preferred by many
cooks because of Ita color.

ed an Increase of 33 4 per cent, in
values, which goes far to reverse the
popular Impression as to the course of
British Columbia mining daring the
year. In oon-metallc substances the
principal values were lo coal ind coke.
Both of these showed substantial gains
which were the remit mainly of the
opening of the Crow's Neat mlnea. In
view of the fact that tbere waa 1 considerable decrease la the export of British Columbia coal to California, the
gain ln coal and coke prodnctlon Is very
encouraging, showing that there haa
been a much batter demand at home,
chiefly from the mining and smelting
Industries. The remaining products,
which Include building stone, cement,
clay aod similar matters, showed a fair
increaae. Upon the wbole, Mr. Robertson's report most be considered a very
encouraging one to British Columbia

There will be some development up

going to surprise even those who have
faith in that district.
Charles Estmere came down from tbe
Windermere country this week in belia'f

The Herald editor fell in conversation
with a miner on the train last week, who
had just returned froji the much advertised Horsefly diggings. He bad been
induced to go in by the flattering reports
circulated as to the wonderful richness
of tbat section. He said tbat so fares
he was concerned and from repoits of
others right on the ground, tbe whole
thing was a fake, pure aud simple, and
that many a poor devil was caught there
dead broke.
The general impression that British
Columbia mines have not been doing
well recently seems to be contradicted
by the statement just Issued by Mr. W.
T. Robertson, the provincial metallurgist, giving a close estimate of tbe
output of the provioce for the
year 1031. Comparing this witb
ihe completed figures for 1900
we find that the total mineral production of the province reached 4 value
of 120,713,600, showing an Increase of
no less than 26.7 per cent, over the
previous year. Tbe various Items
which go to make up this total nearly
all show a gain substantial In ita
amount. Tneie was, it Is true, a fall*
Ing off In gold from placers, due partly
to a short season and partly to tbe
failure of the large hydraulic operations
undertaken ln tbe Atlln and In tbe
Cjsslar to yield aoy considerable
amount during the first seasoo; but
there was a large Increase ln the gold
producer from tbe lode mines, and tbe
itold production reached a total last
year of j>r, .100,700, an Increase of 18 3
p;r cent, over 1900. Sliver also showed
the considerable gain of 13 0 per cent,
■/bile the production of copper reached the total of 30,730,798 pounds, or
206 6 per cent, more tlian lu tbe pre*
vlous year. A large part of this gain
was due to the Granby and Grand Forks
smelters, and 10 tbe production of ores
fiom the mines of the West Kootenay
dlvhlon, Lead showed a falling off
which amounted to 26 8 per cent, and
this was due not so much to the failure
of mln -s as to the refusal of smelters to
bu> Canadian lead ores and their determination to curtail production In view
of tbe very large stocks which bad been
carried over from 1900 Tbe total production of metals in the province snow-
