ALL MAKING
NEW CONTRACTS
Mining in the Slocan in a
Most Flourishing
Gondltion.
Payne Mine Makes a Great
Record���$113.000 In
Profits.
"I never saw the Slocan country
more promising than it looks at the
present time," is the answer given by
Frank Watson, a prominent Spokane
mining man, to the alarmist reports
regarding the effect of the American
Smelting and Refining Company's action In declining to renew contracts
for British Columbia ores, on the mm
ing interests of the Slocan. Mr. Wat
son was In the city for a short time
yesterday, after s*fending four days
in the Slocan country where his financial stakes are driven probably as
deep as those of any one other man
operating in the Kootenays. Wherever he went he found that the shipping mines were making new contracts for their ores and in many cases
.more favorable terms were secured
than was ever the case before. Where
ores carry a high percentage of lead
values.'.the contracts are not so liberal
as was formerly the case but even in
these instances the existing rates are
better than those in force during the
last few months of 1U00. The mines
in the Slocan City section have benefited materially by tho demand for
dry ores. Their rate is now about
87. HO per ton for freight and treatment and the mining men of the district predict a $5 rate to go into effect
shortly. Such favorable smelting
terms should substantially stimulate
_/ mining in the district back of Slocan
City which Is the outlet for the great
dry ore belt.
The citizens of Slocan City are now
applying for incorporation as a city
and are enthusiastic over the prospects
of their town. Among other points
which are produced to substantiate the
predictions for a great future is that
of Slocan City's desirability as a smelter site. The town has, according to
the optimistic citizens, an unequalled
site for such an institution, ample
water supply, good railroad facilities,
an Inexhaustible supply of pure liuio
rjck, all the Iron that is required
and a never failing area of dry ore
producing county to draw from in one
direction and the wot ore belt adjacent. When conditions arc such as to
demand an additional smelter the Slocan City people fully expect it to be
located in their midst.
The Payne mine at Sandon continues
to uphold Its reputation as the banner producer in the Sloean. The
statement issued for the last quarter
of 1000 shows that the net profits
from the mine for that period were
9113,000 and the amount distributed in
dividends 874,000.

GREAT BRITAIN'S ACTION.
London, Jan. 17.���Widely divergent
opinions on the matter of the Nicaragua canal punted today in the
Daily Telegraph and the London
Times make it pertinent to say that
this government's views have not yet
been concentrated into a decision.
There is no shadow of doubt that if
the opinion of the foreign offije as a
department shall be forwarded at the
cabinet meeting on Friday, Great
Britain either will express legretfnlly
ber inability to comply with the
United States senate amendments to
the Hay-Pauncefote treaty or will
fail to take any action whatever. In
the later case the treaty would lapse
of itself.
THE STORY
ARE TAKING
���   THEIR TIME
Ratepayers Not Over Anxious
to Vote on Messenger
Service By-Law.
Indications Point to Lightest
Vote Ever Polled In
Nelson.
The voting on the messenger service
.by-law is under way today but that
fact would not be known from any
outward appearance of Interest on
the streets. The duties of the returning officers were extremely light this
morning. City Clerk Strachan opened
his booth in the police office sharp at
8 o'clock, and R, J. Steel, the clerk,
bad everything in shape for a rush.
A few minutes later R. J. Hamilton
and Alderman Irving dropped in.
Mr. Hamilton dropped In his ballot
first and the two were the only votes
recorded up to 10 o'clock. At the
west ward polling booth Police Magistrate Crease performed the duties of
returning officer and clerk. The young
man selected for tbe latter office did
not turn up on time and when he did
arrive, his worship did not require
bis services. Ex-Alderman McKillop
recorded the first vote cast at this
booth and up to 10:30 o'clock two
more ballots had found their way into
the box. Later in tbe day some of
the parties interested in the success of
the by-law started rustling and the
ballots were cast somewhat faster,
but the Indications are that when the
booths close at 5 o'clock tonight the
vote will be tho smallest In the history of tho city. As long, however,
as three-fifths of the vote cast is in
the affirmative the by-law will be
carried. It comes np at Monday's
council meeting for final disposition
in any event.
Thomas Sergeant, the messenger
service promoter, is in Vancouver at
present but will return to the city
when the result of the voting is
known. His agreement with the city
provides that in event of the by-law
being curried work is to be started on
the installation of the system within
two months and that it shall be completed within six months. It Is stated, however, than an order for the
plant required has been placed with
the eastern manufacturer and that a
telegram will secure its delivery here
within a few days. Tbe cost of the
outfit will be from 83,000 to 84,000 of
which one half represents the outlay
for wages in the city, while the service is being installed. Sergeant has
secured an office on Baker street near
Nlckerson's jewelry store and proposes to locate his exchange there.
Call boxes are to be placed free of
charge at points where business may
be secured and two telephones are ordered for the office bo that the exchange may be seoured readily from
any part of the residential districts.
The scale of charges for the messenger service is claimed to be low,
based on the time occupied by the
messenger in delivering a message entrusted to him. The lads, who will
wear a distinctive uniform, will have
time slips on which entries are made
when they leave tho office, or their
arrival at the point where the patron
Is to be found and on their return to
tho exchange. Sergeant states that
his aim will bo to popularize the service and make it an IndispcnBlble feature.
��ymu TOLD AGAIN
Special Correspondent Tells
of the Whitaker Wright
Troubles.
Great Baring Failure Was
Not So Sudden and
Dramatic.
(Special  Correspondence.)
London, Eng., Dec. 29.���Never during the past forty years have such unprecedented scenes been witnessed on
the English Stock Exchange as we
saw this morning when thirteen firms
of speculators associated with the
Whitaker Wright group collapsed)
Even the great Baring failure was not
so sudden and so dramatic as today's
"Black Saturday," and it is necessary
to go back to "Illaek Friday" in Nov.
'00, when Overend, Gurney & Co. failed, to equal the extraordinary excitement and consternation evinced today
within the walls of .the Throgmorton
street exchange. The full nature of
the panic and of the losses cannot
even yet be told. Throgmorton street
knew something of what was about to
happen, but even the best informed
were unprepared for the extent of
what [has happened. Le Roi No. 2
shares stood on Friday at ��23%. Now
tbey aro unsaleable at ��3, representing a capital loss on paper of two
and a half million pounds, or over
twelve million dollars on this one
company alone. Needless to say the
loss is more apparent than real���that
the original price was one to which
the shares bad been hoisted by market -
rigging of the worst order���but. the
real losses to speculators in mining
shares all over England will be tremendous, and the association of the
Marquis of Dufferin, a statesman of
European, and more than European,
reputation, with the company at the
reck bottom of the collapse has given
even greater importance to events.
On receiving tbe news that his son
Lord Frederick Blackwood was
wounded at the front Lord Dufferin
determined to start for South Africa
a few days ago, and he then resigned
bis chairmanships in the Whitakei
Wright group of' companies, best
known among which is the London
and Globe Finance Corporation.
The history of the collapse began
with a number of determined fights
between the "bulls" and tho "bears''
of the stock exchange on settlement
days over the the shares of tho mining properties protected by the London & Ulobe Corporation. The Lake-
view company of West Australia was
picked out for special attack as well
as various British Columbia companies, selling for a fall emanating from
Adelaide first of all. These "bear"
operations became bo persistent that
an opposing group of interested speculators headed by tbe London and
Ulobe decided to create a corner in the
shares and to squeeze out the "boars."
With this object In view they announced before each settlement that a
large "take-up" of shares would be
effected. Under the influence of these
statements and of some real purchases
in support of them, prices were steadily worked up. The season of the present settlement was unpropitious for
these operations and the restriction of
loans generally put it out of the power of the Globe group to pay for the
shares tbat were to be delivered to
them. The "boars" obtained a terrible and complete revenge.
This morning when the stock exchange opened there was a crowd of
members present. Over night there
bad been a fall In Laneview, Le Rol
and Globe shares, accompanied by the
return of the Globe Corporation
cheques, and for an hour the house
did no business. It wanted to know
the position.
The first dreaded "hammering"
preceded the announcement of the
failure of Haggard, Hale and Plxley,
chief brokers of the group, whose
names have figured on the prospectus
of nearly all the over capitalised companies of the group and who are a
firm of very large resources. Hale,
senior, Is an old man and one of four
partners. He has been a member of
the London Stock Exchange since 1884
and the default was brought about by
the dishonoring of cheques for enormous sums banded to them on Friday
for shares brought by the Globe Corporation, and the allied Standard Exploration Company.
Soon the three dreaded raps of the
hammer rang out again, and hushed a
murmur of dismay by the exchange.
"Messrs. Blockey and Buckingham
have not complied with their bargains," sta'ed the waiter, whose hands
tremoled like an aspen. Blockey and
Buckingham are reputed to have liabilities amounting to half a million
sterling, and like Hale and Co. they
were brokers.
There was barely a minutes' pause
before the hammer pronounced the
doom of another firm, tbis time jobbers. Gunn and Aubrey were the firm
hammered on this occasion, well
known Westralian speculators. In
half an honr there was a forth defaulter, M. F. A. Cohen. Cohen is the
same Cohen who is well known in the
athletic world and was broker to
Whitaker Wright.
Bad as was this beginning, worse remained behind. At intervals during
the morning the dreary list was increased by the addition of nine more
8rms all more of less well known.
Perhaps the more extraordinary fact
of tbe collapse is that Whitaker
Wright personally 1b said to have got
clear of the wreck and not to be involved in the loss. There is no other
way of putting the matter than to say
tbat everyone was making free with
Lord Duffeirn's name. Lord Dufferin
has spoken in strong terms in public
of the integrity of Mr. Whitaker
Wright, and his association with the
group bas given them a standing they
would not otherwise have attained,
his lordship being personally .the soul
of honor.

This Morning.
New York, Jan. 17.���Frederick J.
Yuengling, son of a brewer, started
last night for Rossland, B. 0., in
charge of two constables to stand trial
on a charge of embezzlement. He is
accused of having misappropriated
$300. He was arrested here in October
and has contested the case at every
step. President McKinley signed the
extradition   papers   two   weeks  ago.
COAL FAMINE  IN   COLORADO.
Denver, Col., Jan. 17.���As a reBult
of the complete tie-up of the coal
mines of this state, due to the strike
of the miners, which began several
weeks ago in the northern coal fields
and gradually extended to alt the other districts of Colorado as well as New
Mexico, Colorado Is on the verge of a
coal famine. Mining has been seriously affected and manufacturing industries are threatened with a stoppage of business due to Inability to
secure fuel with which to operate the
machinery.
A DEER THAT BABKS.

The Nelson Board of Trade for 1901
entered upon the year's work last
night under most favorable and promising circumstances. The adjonrned
meeting was well attended, the members manifested a keen interest in the
proceedings, the elections for executive
offices were keenly contested, with
few exceptions where acclamation
was accorded, and altogether tho feeling manifested would seem to indicate
that the organization is to take a new
grip on life this year and that such
events as adjournments for want of
quorums are likely to be conspicuous
by their absence. The business men
of the community appear to have realized that an organization, the usefulness of which cannot be over-estimated, was in danger of passing into desuetude throngh lack of encouragement
and to have rallied manfully to the
rescue.
Tbe drat business transacted at the
adjourned annual meeting last night
was the disposition of the notices of
motion given at the previous session.
The first of these was offered by Secretary Swannell and provided for a
change of tbe regular meetings from
Wednesday night to Thursday. Excellent reasons were advanced in favor
of the change and the resolution was
carried. Tbe second motion was to
amend the clause in the constitution
relating to membership to permit of
business firms becoming, members of
the Board with the privilege of nominating a representative and an alternate. The force of this innovation was
dwelt on, and the resolution was carried. On tbe strength of tbe latter
tbe following firms became members:
Beer Bros., Dell & Co., Kootenay
Wire Works Manufactnring Company,
Porto Rico Lumber Co., Nelson Coke
* Gas Co., Patenaude Bros., and
the Crow's Nest Coal Company. In
addition the followiug individual
members were admitted: R. W. Day
and W. G. Gillett.
Secietary Swannell presented his
annual report which took the shape of
a resume of tbe board's work in
1900.
The election of officers followed,
and created very considerable interest.
Tbe nominations had been made at
the previous meeting with the understanding tbat further nominations
might be added last night. For the
presidency the name of Grange V.
Holt, manager of the local Canadian
Bank of Commerce was the only one
placed in nomination, and Mr. Holt
was unanimously elected. The same
course was followed In the case of F.
W. Swannell, who was unanimously
re-elected secretary. For the vice-presidency three names were placed In
nomination, tho choice of the members falling upon Thoburn Allen, of
the P. Burns Company. A lively contest ensued for the council, the result
of the balloting being as follows: J,
Roderick Robertson, Hamilton Byers,
Percy Chapman, ,1. M. Lay, T. G.
Procter, Frank Fletcher, Robert Rob-
ertBon, J. J. Campbell, Charles Illll-
yer, P. Lamont, R. J. Hamilton and
A. B. Sherwood. T. G. Procter and
Captain Duncan wore appointed representatives of the board to the convention of the Associated Boards of
Trade for Southern British Columbia,
which meets in Oreenwood   this year.
The secretary submitted a draft of a
petition to tho Dominion government
recommending the establishment of a
department of mines under tho direction of a member of the cabinet or attached to one of the departments now
in existence. After some discussion it
was resolved to leave the matter of
completing the petition to a commit
tee to bo selected by the president,
who nominated Frank Fletcher, S. H.
Taylor, Q. C., J. Roderick Robertson
and 8. S. Fowler.
8. 8. Taylor brought to the attention of the board the fact that a determined effort would likely be made
at the next sitting of the legislature
to secure an   amendment  to the stat
ues whereby the sittings of the supreme court, full court-would be moved from Vancouver, where the court
now sits, to Victoria. Such a change
would very materially increase the
cost of litigation originating in the interior and in view of this he requested
tbe board to approve of a resolution
embodying a protest against any
change. Ou motion of Messrs. Fletcher and Byers the resolution was
carried.
This concluded the business of the
meeting. The members in attendance
were: President Holt, J. M. Lay,
Mayor Fletcher, T. Allen, A. R. Sherwood, P. Lamont, W. W. Beer, T. G.
Procter, J. Roderick Robertson, P.
Chapman, H. Byers,Robert Robertson,
C. Hillyer, A. J. Marks, T. Morley,
S. S. Taylor, Q. C, 8. 8. Fowler and
Secretary Swannell.
In accepting the presidency for the
ensuing year, Mr. Holt expressed the
hope that the board would accord him
hearty support. During the past year
the board had worked hard and he
was satisfied they were in no small
measure instrumental in securing the
new public building for the city. It
was a source of gratification to know
that the efforts of the board and others had been successful in this direction. The president-elect touched on
an interesting point by remarking
that one of the subjects which should
be gone into at an early date was that
of better quarters for the board. If
finances would permit an effort should
be made to secure more commodions
and better furnished apartments and
in any event something should be
done in the direction of improving
the furnishings of the present place of
meeting.
EXPECT LARGE
EXPENDITURES
Maintenance Department of
G.P.R. to Spend Much
Money.
One  Hundred Thousand to
Go on Robson Nelson
Branch.
Local railroad men are looking forward to a lively season in the maintenance department of the C. P. R.
and the prospect is that not less than
?10i),000 will be expended in improving the line between Nelson and Robson. The understanding is that application has been made to the head office
for nn appropriation of something
over 8200,000 to be devoted to straightening tbe alignment and improving
the road bed on this division. 'Whatever portion of this large sum is allowed it is safe to predict that the
whole amount and much more will be
expended in the next two or three
years before the rood is in good condition to carry the heavy traffic which
will naturally follow the expansion of
business and the introduction of heavy
through trains drawn by 110-tou Mogul engines.
The original survey of the C. P. Ii.
between Nelson and Robson called
for an excellent line, but the cost
would have been very heavy, and at
the time circumstances did not appear
to justify the outlay, hence the "rabbit trail" track, as it is termed, was
constructed. Since the C. P. R.'s business has grown to its present great
proportions the necessity of improvement has become more marked with
each successive season. Last year over
S.'iti.iMiu was expended in correcting
some of the worst curves and tho rock
cuts thus secured have improved the
situation to a marked degree. The appropriation did not go far enough,
however, hence the large appropriation asked for.
Within the next few weeks something will probably be known regarding the diverting of the mainline
through the Kootenays, as the matter
is said to be coming up on the floor of
the House of Commons. This is a
question of extrfme importance to the
district and developments will be
awaited with keen interest.

Lord  Rosebery Sees Much
Danger to Great Britain's Trade.
American Trust a Most Powerful Engine of Warfare.
London, Jan. 17.���At a meeting of
the Wolverhampton Chamber of Commerce yesterday, former Prime Minister Rosebery made a speech in which
he dealt in a most serious strain with
the industrial and commeicial competition with which Great Britain was
faced He declared that it was dark
and gloomy. It was difficult,even unwise, to try to prophesy what it might
havo in store. The war, he feared,
was not military. It was that great
war of trade which was inevitably
coming, and which, so far as be could
see, would be one of the greatest
and most serious that Oreat Britain
ever had to cope with. While not
putting other nations out of the category it was from the United States
and Germany that the British had the
most to fear. America, with its almost incalculable resources and enterprising spirit of its' people, was tho
most formidable ot all competitors.
The Germans although somewhat slow
and unwieldly, were scarcely inferior
rivals owing to their silent and persistent methods and unconquerable
spirit. Lord Rosebery remarked upon
the one striking feature of the American competitor, namely, that the great
individual fortunes being made in tbe
United States were not employed as
they probably would be in England
to enable their makers to retire and
enjoy social and other pleasures but
were invested in great trusts and syndicates to form power for concentrating attacks on British trade. Those
millions so invested could be wielded
as an engine of warfare in such irre-
sistable form as to constitute a danger
which the British could not a flout to
ignore. If one or two of the trusts
comuined for the purpose of competing with any branch of British trade
by underselling, they might obtain
such a monopoly in that branch as almost to dilve Great Britain out of the
market.
After a further reference to Germany, Lord Rosebery asked what
Great Britian was going to do to avoid
defeat. He, as a layman, hesitated
to attempt to answer, but if he did
attempt to reply, he should say that
the remedy lay In education. He believed that the British people were tho
best raw material in the world, but
he was convinced that their commercial men required to be educated and
trained, trom bottom to top. Their
training as it was, was both Insufficient and too insular. For instance,
they did not send their young men
abroad as others did to learn methods
of business and manufacture. He suggested that the chamber of commerce
should consider tbe question of devot.

course of a privato conversation with
members of the sacred college yesterday, spoke with great satisfaction of
the letter from Emperor Nicholas replying to the pope's thanks for the

Lord Rosebery, according to i
speech delivered by him at Wolver
hampton yesterday, sees at no distant
date a war of greater magnitude, of
greater import aud of fewer chances
of victory than any in which Great
Britain has been engaged in past
.'ears. It is not to be a military war
but a war of trade, and America and
Germany are to be England's most bit
ter foes. It is the American trust that
Lord Rosebery most fears, and in this
respect he is undoubtedly correct
American manufacturing concerns
which are now competing with English institutions for the world's trade,
are, nearly all of them, members of
trusts having behind them almost
countless wealth. In order to drive
competition ont of tbe world's fields
these American concerns are in a posi
tion to lay their product down in any
country at prices that cannot be touch
ed by the smaller concern with less
capital behind it. The American trust
loses money, but it iB an investment
tbat will pay big interest later on.
In the same manner in which the
American trust has forced out of the
field the smaller American concerns
so will it force out of the field the
small and large manufacturers of other
countries, unless these foreign manufacturers fight the Americans with
tbe American weapon. The present is
a day of trusts, of combined capital,
and the country with the wealthiest
trusts is tbe country tbat will secure
the gioater part of tbe world's trade.
English capital must combine if it
would hold its own with America's.
President Holt, of the Nelson Board
of Trade, was quite right in his remarks last night witb reference to
the present Board of Trade rooms. He
thinks new and better quarters should
be secured and The Miner quite agrees
with him. The present board room
and tbe means of access to it could
not be much worse. Newly elected
members of the board, attending a
meeting for the Brst time, have some
difficulty in finding the room, and if
by any chance the lamps In the hall
are not lighted one is in danger of
collision with a sharp corner or the
wall. One of the first things to be
done by the board should be the securing of new quarters, large enough
for a well attended publio meeting
and easy of access. If Nelson is to
forge ahead this year as we all expect
it will, tbe Board of Trade must at
least be running neck-and-neok if not
slightly in the lead.
The Miner desires to congratulate
the members of the Board of Trade
upon their choice of gentlemen to
serve as officers and members of tbe
council during the ensuing year. They
are all substantial business men and
tbe president, vice-president and sec

Mow the Crafty Publican Made Money
Out of Him.
A Rottingdean correspondent writes
to M. A. P. : "H3re is a true story of
Rudyard Kipling. His high walled
garden at Rottingdoan contains some
of the best of the few trees which
grace this windswept village. One of
these trees, branching over the road
threatened daily injury to the driver
of the local 'bus. Therefore he and
bis conductor waged destructive war
on all the vulnerable twigs within
reach from the 'bus roof. Result���a
vigorous letter of complaint from Mr.
Kipling to the 'bus owner.wbo iH ulso
landlord of ono of the local inns.
That evening the landlord laid the
letter before the select company of
the bar-parlor. They advised an attitude of calm Indifference. Also a
Croesus among tbem offered ten shillings in cash for the autograph letter.
Both advice and cash were accepted.
The nuisance continuing, in due
course a second and stronger letter followed the first. The landlord convened another bar parliament, and the
second letter also found a purchaser,
this time at ��1, as befitted its increased violence. And Boniface again 'sat
tight.' To him entered next day Mr.
Kipling, briskly wrathful. 'Why
didn't 1 answer your letters, sir?
Why, I was hoping you'd send a
fresh one every day. They pay a deal
batter than 'bus driving;' <r
r'L-j:'.'.
'SHINNEY ON YOUR OWN SIDE.
Shinney on your own side"���
Can you lemember how
You shinneyed on jour own side
In happier days than now?
The skates were dull and rusty.
The puck an old tiu can
As we shinneyed on our own side
On the millpond by the dam.
'���Shinney on your own side"���
In clothes tbat father wore
We sliiuneyed on our own side
In happier days of yore;
In mitts that mother knit us.
With coats laid   down for goals,
We shinneyed on our own side,
And never tliongbt of colds.
"Shinney on your own side"���
Theu tun and get tbe cow;
Hut shinney on your own side,
The girls are looking now;
And sitting by the big millwheel.
Our sweethearts watched the game,
And wc shinneyed on our own side,
With our yoang hearts all aflame.
"Shinney on your own side"���
Tbe sun Is setting soon;
Then we'll shinney on our own side
Hy the light of the silver moon;
And the big mill wheel will sparkle
Ou this glorious winter night,
As we shinney on our own side
Witb oarelesfl hearts and light.
"Shinney on your own side"���
Sweet dreams that used to be,
We shinney on our own side
Yet, but in memory;
We yearn for sweetheart's face again
For the   stick and the old tin can,
To shinney on our own side
On the millpond by  the dam.

THE TUMBLING CLOWN.
Cat Him Ont, Paint Him Dp and Help
Him Do Hie Trick*.
To 01011* the clown cut out of cardboard and paint in gay colors the four
pieces you Bee represented in tbe accompanying illustration, only there must be
two of each, excepting the part that represents the head and trunk of the clown.
That will give you seven pieces���one
body, two of trousers, two legs aud two
arms. Now fasten the pieces together
with thread or twine, after having placed
them in position���tbat is, put an arm on
each side of the body at tbe shoulder���
then slip a threaded needle through the
three pieces of cardboard. Draw the
thread through and cut it off so that twu
Inches of thread remain on each side.
Knot the thread close to the arms on
each Bide. Carry out the same plan witb
the trousers. Next fasten the legs to I he
trousers separately In the same manner.
Make holes in the hands large enough to
permit you tightly to Insert n match. By
twirling the match you can make the
clown go through many interesting "monkey shines." The clown may be made any
���lie you desire. But if it is several Inches high thin pieces of board should be
used and still wire instead of thread.
Too BlK For III* Boot*.
With great trouble a small body of
men were busy hoisting a heavy log to
the top of the blockhouse that was being
repaired after an assault in one of the
campaigns of the war of American independence.
As the log swung to nnd fro tbe voice
of a little man was heard encouraging
the workers with a "Heave away! There
���he goesl   Heave, ho!"
By and by there rode past an officer in
plain clothes, who asked the little man
why he did not help the others.
"Sir," was the pompous reply, "I am
a corporal I"
"Indeed?" said the other.. "I did not
know that. I ask your pardon, Mr. Corporal."
Dismounting without further ado the
officer lent a willing hand till the job was
done. Then, wlpiug the honest sweat ofT
his brow, be turned to the little man and
remarked:
"The next time, Mr. Corporal, you have
a bit of Work like that in hand nnd too
few men to do It send for the commander
In chief, and I'll come again aud assist
you."
With whicb offer nnd rebuke General
Washington left the astonished corporal
19 his own reflections.���Little Folks.

You can have the egg stay just where

An eccentric hermit named William
Bchueller, who lives at Franklin, Mich.,
Is said to be one of the most successful
fishermen In bis part of the country, and
h�� claims to call the fish to him by singing "Old Hundredth." He goes out in bii
boat and takes a station in fairly deep
wstor. Then he sings, at the same time
keeping his eyes on the water In search
of fish. Gradually the fish crowd about
his boat, ho claims, and when enough are
gathered together tbe wily fisherman
casts a not and catches dozens at a single
haul. The old gentlcmnn bus a famous
voice, and his neighbors are inclined to
believe his strango story.

Whin tbey could only talk;
Before Columella came to show

What did they teach the little boyi
Who went to echool like mot
There wasn't any grammar then;
They couldn't read or spell,
For books were not Invented, yot
I think 'twu Just aa well.
There were not any rows of dates

INVITE    CANADIAN    RIFLEMEN.
Toronto, Jan. 17.���Lieut.' A. 8.
Jones, secretary of the National Rifle
Association of the United State*, has
invited the crack shots of the Dominion Rifle Association, through Colonel
Hodgins, secretary, to participate in
the international shooting competition
on the range of the National Guard
located at Seagirt, N. J., the visiting
teams to be supplied with tent, blankets, and camp equipment, by the
military authorities of New Jersey.

an-liisley team could attend the tournament on their way back from England.
MADAME ALUIN1   COMING.
Canadian   Prima   Donna Will Sing in
Nelson   Drill Hull.
Mudame Albani, Canada's great
prima donna, will appear in Nel6on
about the middle of April. She
will be accompanied by a company of
artistes worthy of her, which will
assure u concert that will be equalled
in Canada only by those the same
company gives in other cities. Ma
dame Albani and associates are on a
tour around the world, planning it so
as to be in Australia in time for the
commonwealth celebrations in July.
Charles A. E. Harries, of Ottawa,
who managed Madame Albani on ber
tour of Canada a few years ago and
who brought Godfrey's baud to Nel
son, is managing the present tour.
He has not yet stated who will accom-
puny the primn donnu but has stated
that the company will surpass the
former one. Those who were fortunate enough to heur her will look
forward to a rare treat when the Nelson concert takes place. The drill hall,
which will shortly be erected across
the street from the Hotel Phnir, has
been secured. It will hold u lnrgei
audience than the capacity of the
opera house will permit of aud as it
will he built with a view to huving
concerts tuke place in it frequently,
attention will be given to the accous-
tio properties.
The appearance of the company
here will, of course, depend on a guarantee in tho nature of promises to se
cure tickets if the concert is held, but
us the music lovers of Nelson would
not allow such an opportunity to pats
there is no doubt thut a sufficient number of names can be secured.
A PRIVILEGE
Thrown Away Entirely.
It is curious to observo how hard it
is for some people to give up coffee
drinking after they have become, nt
least half satisfied,that it Is the cause
of their 111 health, but It becomes an
easy task to give it up when one taken
Postum Food Coffee In Its place, pre
vidlng, of course, that Postum Is
made according to directions, for then
it has thu rich, beautiful color, and a
satisfying tut te, while the rapid improvement in health clinches the nrgu
ment,
A young lady at Ciimbridgoport,
Mass., suyn: "When it wus shown to
me plainly thut my ill health and excessive nervousness wus largely due to
the coffee, 1 realized that I must give
It up, but it wus next to impossible to
do so. However, 1 made the trial nnd
took Postum Food Coffee, with thu
mental reservation of the 'privilege,1
as I termed It, of drinking coffee once
a week.
"Little did I dream what a true
friend Postum wab destined to become
to me. The old stomach trouble left,
the nervousness vanished, and good,
natural, healthy Bleep came to my
relief. In less thun six months I felt
like another person, I was so well and
happy. The 'reserve privilege' in regard to using regular coffee was
thrown to tho winds. I have not the
slightest desire for it; in fact, I very
much    prefer   my     Postum   to   any
baring; abducted the* child, but as yot
no traces have been discovered of
