Eleventh  Year
Large Amount of Sliver-Lead
Ore Being Treated
Here.
The busiest   industry in   Nelson today Is the Hall Mines Smelter.    Since
the   institution    recommenced   operations in August   last  its   tonnage has
increased     gradually   until     at    the
present  time the   capacity  has  been
reached.    With the beginning of next
month, however, certain   additions to
the plant will   be   completed   thereby
doubling the capacity  of tbe smeltei.
Certain   circumstances    have    transpired   during tbe last few   weeks   t'ie
effect of which   has been to   divert   a
large   tonnage of   silver-lead   ores to
Nelson   from tbe   American smelters.
and the  Hall   Mines   smelter is  thus
assured of a steady supply of raw material so long as   nothing crops   up to
Interfere with the   mining   industry.
At present it is  generally agreed tbat
the outlook for  mining   is  unusually
bright and the Nelson smelter is bound
to benefit   by  general  activity in the
industry of  which   it forms   a   part.
Tbat this is desirable from the standpoint of Nelson's   business   men  and
citizens generally   will not be contradicted, but tbe fact   will  be more apparent when it is stated that the smelter la now distributing among its employees   no   less     than   8-0,000     per
month, and   among  the   mine owners
and operators   of   the   district   something about ��90,000  por   month, boll.

able that tbe smelter returns for January will show that the London Consolidated shipped upwards of 50 tons.
It is reported that the management
proposes to mine 40 tons per day for
the balance" of the winter. The
thaw has not affected the Molly Gibson road as yet, a telephone message
from the mine yesterday being to tbe
effect that the road was still in good
condition. The Molly Gibson has
been shipping a carload of ore daily
foi several weeks.

SALE OF THE. DUNDEE.
Negotiations Are   Still   on and Early
Developments Expected
Charles   Dundee,    president of  the
Dundee Mining Company, was in   tbe
city   j-esterday   after   a   visit   to the
company's property   at  Ymir.    Work
is proceeding there on the vein discovered after  last   summer's   forest   fire
swept over the  Dundee  ground.    The
lead is a true   fissure vein   with walls
at straight as those of n   house and in
places  smooth   as  glass.    The ore  is
eight feet in   width   and   averages op
to tbe present considerably   over  810.
The tunnel on the vein is   in 250 feet,
while another   tunnel  started 150 feet
lower down the hill is now in 40 feet.
Negotiations are still under   way  for
tbe sale of the Dundee to  an   English
syndicate   and   further   developments
are  expected   almost   daily.    In   the
meantime the ore which has come out
of the tunnel on the new   vein is   being saved on the dump   for  shipment
if necessary.    Until tbe matter of the
sale of the property   is  disposed of in
some shape the   present  owners  will
take no  steps   toward   replacing  the
concentrator destroyed   last year or to
pump out the original workings.

ONE BRIDGE GONE.
Tbaw Plays Havoc With Crawford
Creek Wagon Road.
The sudden thaw has created havoc
with the Crawford Creek rond, and
shipments from the Silver Hill mine
have been Btopped until the weather
stiffens up and certain repnirs aro
made to the road. At a point seven
or eight miles from the Hay a snow-
slide carried away one of the bridges.
Tbe bridge in question had been
built with an apron for thu purpose
of carrying slides over   the   top,   but
A Good Section When   Transportation
facilities Are Improved.
Thomas R. French, a -well known
Kaslo mining man, was a guest at the
Hotel Hume yesterday on his way to
New Denver where he is likely to be
located In future. Mr. French is interested in the Woodbury Mines on
the south forks of Woodbury Creek,
and was in charge of the property
hiBt year when operations were oar-
ried on. Ills opinion of the Woodbury Creek country Is that the section
is a promising field for investment
where sufficient capital Is at the disposal of the investors to work the
properties on a proper basis. The
distance from transportation is oue
of the most serious drawbacks. When
in charge of the Woodbury Mines,
Mr. French shipped a quantity of ore
but found that nothing short of 880
ore oould bo handled at a profit he-
cause of the heavy cost of transportation. Plenty of 840 oie could have
been shipped but the operation woull
have been performed at an actual loss
to the shipper. He is of opinion that
the Woodbury Creek ores will eventually be treated on the ground.
ANOTHER   RICH STRIKE.
Paradise Mine in East Kootenay Coming to   the Front.
(IPECIAL TO THE Mil*Hit.)
Peterborough, Windermere District, ,Ian. 10.���Authentic Information
was received in town this morning regarding an extraordinary rich strike
of ovur eight feet of carbonates on
the Paradise mine, on Spring Creek,
a tributary of Toby Creok. This is
the second rich strike on this property within a month. The Paradise
is one of the coming mines of East
Kootenay. The ore bodies now uncovered are something wonderful.
Knur horse teams are hauling Paradise
ore into Peterborough for shipment
in tbe spring. The Silver Crown,
Paradise, Shamrock and Silver Belt
group, all carry the same lead. They
are situated in what is known as the
Paradise Basin, headwaters of Spring
Creek, a tributary of main Toby
Creek.
ABANDON THE IDEA.
Scheme For Raising a Colonial Police
Force Given Up.
New York, Jan. IB.���The London
correspondent of The Tribune Bays:
"Anouncement Is made by the Post
that the scheme for raising a colonial
police force has beon abandonod for
the present. The rates ot pay are not
considered templing enough by the
! people living in South Africa and of
1111,000 men who applied to the United
Much has been written and more
has been said during the last few
weeks regarding the smelter situation,
and as a rule the discusion has been
of a nature calculated to alarm investors in silver-lead mining propositions in addition to creating a general feeling of uneasiness among those
interested in the prosperity of the
country. A close scrutiny of the
facts, however, indicates that the real
situation is by no means as alarming
as some believe; in fact there is no
foundation for the alarmist reports.
In support of this contention, The
Miner appends a statement from Mr. J.
J.Campbell,commercial manager of the
Hall Mines Smelter, wll'eh speaks for
itself on this important topic. When
interviewed on the subject Mr. Campbell said:
"I consider there has been a good
deal of exaggeration and undue excitement regarding the smelter situation.
Last year's contracts only expired a
couple of weeks ago and ore continued
to be received on the basis of the old
agreements during tbe first part of
this year. So far as I am aware all
tbe smelter which have hitherto been
doing business in this country are
seeking now contracts with tbe exception of the American Smelting and
Refining Company, and if they should
not come into the market I think the
other smelters will li a short time be
able to make arrangements to handle
all the ore being produced.
"The alarm that has been caused
by the refusal of the American Smelting and Refining Company to bid on
British Columbia ores is a powerful
argument in favor of encouraging and
building op the local smelting industry. Had the local smelters not entered the field Borne time ago and sinee
increased their respective capacities,
and had the country been, as at one
time, dependent on American smelters
to handle their output, the situation
would indeed have been serious.
"Any impression that the situation
has been taken advantage of to increase the rates is mistuken. The
rates at which contracts were made
early in 1000 and the deduction in
price of London lead bave been very
advantageous to tbe mine-owner, giving him much larger returns than he
woud have received on the same basis
of settlement as had been the standard
in preceding years, but the smelters
generally appear to have found that
the terms were unprofitable to them
and during tbe last months of I lino in
the case of new business there was a
general increase in deduction from
the price of lead to 81 per loo poundB
without any change in the freight
and treatment rate. In making contracts for HUH the deduction has been
left at 81 and the freight unil'tieat-
ment rate reduced by 81 per ton so
that the producers of low lead ores
have more favorable terms than they
had under last year's contracts, while
producers of high lead ores secure
more favorable terms Hum were given
in the last few months of 11)00 and pay
but a slight advance on the contract
rate for thnt year.
"It is strongly felt that the interests of the smelters Is tied up with
that of the ore producers and that it
would be opposed to good policy to
charge higher rates than are necesary
to secure a fair return on the capital
invested in tho smelting Indufltiy, "

Murderers of Jennie Bosschieter
Trial For Their Lives.
New York, Jan. 15.���Tbe trial
Walter L. McAllister, Andrew Campbell and William A. Death, three of
the fonr men accused of the murder of
Jennie Bosschieter, a mill girl of Paterson, N. J., under circumstances revolting in tbeir utter lack of buman
consideration, commenced yesterday
before Judge Dixon in the Passaic
county court. George J. Kerr the
fourth man under indictment was not
in court today as he has been granted a separate trial on the ground that
he was not present when the fatal
dose was administered to tbe girl.
Before the trial was began it was expected that at least two days would
be necessary to complete the jury but
Judge Dixon carried the proceedings
with a vigor that within one hour after the court was called to order he
had empanelled his 12 jurors and
heard the opening lines of the prosecuting attorney. The remainder of
the day saw four of the principal witnesses in the case on the stand. Mrs.
Nina Bosschieter, tbe mother of the
unfortunate girl, was one, her daughter Susie another, Chrlstophr Saal,
the proprietor of the saloon where it
is alleged the girl was administered
the drug, was the third, and Gus
Schnltheher, the hack driver of tbe
horrible midnight ride was tbe last.
Schultherher was the star witness
for the state. He said that on the
night of October 18th about 10:10
o'clock, a young man came to him
and engaged his victoria. The man
was George J. Kerr. Kerr told him a
party of four would use the hack.
Kerr ordered him to drive to Saal's
saloon. Ho said McAllister came -out
of tbe saloon and told him to turn
around. In a little while the four
men, McAllister, Campbell, Death and
Kerr came out carrying a woman.
The woman was placed in the rear
seat. McAllister and Death got in.
One sat on each side of the woman.
The other two men walked toward's
Governor street. He drove that way,
and on Governor street Kerr and
Campbell got into the hack. Witness
was told to drive out along the rock
road. They went along this to a point
beyond the railroad track. He was
then ordered to stop. The place
where he stopped was a clear one with
no bushes. All four men left tbe
carriage. They lifted the girl
about as they lifted her In. lie
thrown the blanket on his horse,
of the men took it off and it was
ried into the dnrknoss where the
man had been borne. Then the
was carried back to the hack and placed on the rear seat. Witness then
told of the drive back to Paters in.
the stop at the house of Dr. Wylie, ol
his not being at home, of the stop at
Dr. Townsends, and of tbe examination by the physician when he remarked, "Boys 1 can do nothing for
you." Then he tried to drive towards
East Fitch Btreet where some of the
men said the girl lived. On the way
prisoners changed their minds and ordered him to drive back across the
river. Witness then told of tho disposal of the body where it was found.

One
car-
wo-
glrl
An interesting conference took
place yesterday between a committee
of citizens and the executive of the
Carpenters' Union. The object of the
���meeting was to discuss certain matters which, it is believed will have un
important bearing on the building
industry during the approaching sea-
sen. The fact is more or less well
known that the Carpenters' Jnion
contemplates putting into effect an
eight hour day and it was felt that
action along this line would seriously
militate against building. This stand
was taken by the local loan agents
and builders whose interests are, naturally, tied up with those of the Carpenters' Union and who would profit
by a lively building season. For this
reason a conference was arranged in
order tbat the topic might be gone Into from both sides of the question.
The citizens' deputation included
among others H. R. Cameron, A. R.
Sherwood, C. D. J. Christie, Hamilton Byers, A. C. Ewart, W. G. Gillctt,
John Hepburn and Jacob Dover, while
the union's representatives included
President Charles J. Clayton and other members of the executive together
with James Wilks. The citizens urged the union men to reconsider the
matter of putting into effect the eight
hour day. Their objection to the
movement was that it would undoubtedly prevent a number of citizens
from building this year owing to tbe
increased cost to be met by reason of
the shorter hours of labor. The carpenters would Buffer equally should
tbe building operations fall short of
what was anticipated and of what
might naturally be expected if nothing was brought up to interfere with
present plans.
The subject was courteously discussed on both sides, but the conference
failed to secure the result desired.
The representatives of the union were
ready to consider all the arguments
advanced, but declined to alter the decision they had decided upon. It was
pointed out to the committee that
similar action toward establishing an
eight hour day had been resolved upon in Rossland and elsewhere and
that tho local union conld hardly
break the compact entered into
throughout the country. Tho present
standard wage for journeymen carpenters is 83.50 for nine  hours   work
C. P. N. PURCHASED.
C. P.   R.    Acquires   a  Controlling Interest in the Navigation Co.
Victoria, Jan. 15.��� The announcement that the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company had acquired a controlling interest in the Canadian Pacific Navigation Company, formed tbe
chief topic of conversation here yesterday. It is learned that the Canadian Pacific Raihoad Company secured
nearly all the shares in the Canadian
Pacific Navigation Company, including the large interests held by the
Hudson's Bay Company, Captain John
Irving, Mr. R. P. Rithet, and Mr.
T. L. Briggs. The price paid has not
yet been divulged, but it is stated
that the shareholders received 95
cents per share for their shares, an
advance of 45 cents over the pries
quoted a few weeks ago. The shares
held by Mr. Thomas Earle, M. P.,
have not yet been acquired by the
Canadian Pacific Railroad Company,
but it Is said that these, and, in fact,
all the remaining shares, will, in a
few days, pass into the hands of tbe
company.

St. Paul, Minn., Jan.15.���The Pioneer Press says: "A solution of J. J.
Hill's activity in railroad affairs was
disclosed here by a confidential friend.
This authority soys: I had a_ long
tulk with Mr. Hill a few weeks ago,
and he told me that the greatest disaster tbat threatened the railroads of
the country waB that pooling might be
legalized by CongresB. President Hill
said such n law wonld be a calamity,
and that the only way to prevent pooling would bo for the railroad interests
to barmonize.and this could be accomplished by a community of ownership
of stock to control the policy of the
roads. Mr. Hill said the traffic from
ocean to ocean was vitally affected by
thiB threatened pool and that to protect his own interests he had secured
the stock in the St. Paul, tbe Baltimore & Ohio, the Erie and the Northern Pacific. I know that the majority
of the stock held by Mr. Hill in these
roads was bought with borrowed
money,the stock being held in trust ns
secuiity."

New York, Jan. 15.���Isaac N. Ford
says In a speclul cable: There is a
good deal of uncertainty as to thu exact Intentions of the government in
regard to tin* question of reinforcements for Sooth Africa. Thu announcement made so positively yustur
day by thu Pout that the enrollment of
Baden-Powell's police force had been

Probably the Post was led Int" the
error by the confusion of official plans
as It is now stated that In addition to
tho constabulary, the war olllce intends to despatch to the Cape 8,001) men
to strengthen the Imperial yeomanry,
which as a fighting body, bus been
seriously weakenod, It Is expected
that without counting thu pollco recruits, u few weeks time will see more
than 10,11110 fresh British troops in tbe

ATTENDANCE   IS LARGE.
Public School's   Large   Classes���High
School Work.
The first session of   11101 in Nelson's
schools   promises   to establish a   new
record In   point  of   attendance.   The
schools have got down to routine  and
the additions to the classes from  oow
until the close of   the   term   will  be
few. At the central school the attendance yesterday was   271, a  better   attendance than   wus had ut  any   time
lust session.    Principal   Soady is taking up high school work with tbe pupils who passed the last entrance  examination   and   a   number of  others
who took the public school leaving examination at   midsummer.   In   addition he has the   preparatory class  on
his hands.    Action by the educational
authorities in the direction of   introducing a high Bchool class on   a   proper basis is   awaited   with   keen   in*
teres t.
At St. Joseph's school the students
number 140, a material increase on
lust, year's attendance. The school
lias grown to such an extent that the
present quarters are quite inadequate
to the demand for room. Within a
short time, however, thu new school
building will oe ready for occupation
and this will relieve the situation.
The Hume Addition school attendance
is something over 5n. and the necessity for an addition to the teaching
stuff Is being more apparent dally. It
Is probable tbe department will tako
this step shortly.

The election by acclamation of Nel
son's mayor and aldermen for 1001, is
not going to sovethe city any expense
as a great many people may imagine.
The polling booths must be opened
and offieered as usual so that tbe ratepayers may cast their votes upon the
by-law granting to certain individuals tbe right to operate in Nelson a
distriot messenger servloe. That the
publio may thoroughly understand
just what a messenger service of this
kind means Tbe Miner will explain.
In the first place there will be established in tbe city a central office of
tbe company. Wires will be strung,
as they are from a telephone office,
to tbe offices and homes of the patrons of the company and here there
will be placed call boxes. By turning the lever of a box a boy is called
and when he has delivered the message of tbe patron of tbe company the
messenger service has been completed.
In some cases these messenger companies also place in residences and
stores burglar alarms, thureby also
giving residents protection against
midnight marauders. It Is to grant
such a company the right to place its
poles and wires in the streets of the
city and to supply the service in
question that the ratepayers will be
asked next Thursday.
If tbey want sueb service they
should go to tbe poles and vote in the
affirmative. If they do not want it
they should go and vote in the negative.    In any case they should vote.
Tomorrow be will be heard for tbe
first time in that beautiful little
ditty: "When It Did Come, It Came
Easy."    __^_^___^_
JUMBLED.
When Ignatlna Donnelly, author,
orator, and scholar, died at his borne
in Minnesota a few days agb he left a
widow, a young woman barely out of
her 'teens, who, prior to her marriage, bad been engaged in Mr. Donnelly's office as stenographer. At the
time of bis marriage to this young
woman Mr. Donnelly wrote and pub
lished in his weekly paper the follow
ing beantiful tribute to   womankind
Ood has been very good to me. He
has denied me worldly success, it is
true, but he has always made my
home a temple of light and beauty
and love, Illuminated by one of the
noblest and grandest of women tbat
ever blessed the heart of man. And
when at last, for His own wise pur
poses, He took her home to His king
dom of bliss He brought into my house
a poor girl working for an insignificant stipend, a foreigner, a stranger
in a strange land, a sweet and gentle
woman, wrapped up in whom there
were qualities tbat princes cannot buy
with all the sheen and glitter of their
crowns.
I picked up a pebble from the beach
���and lol it was a diamond of ineal
cu'able value���for the Bible tells us
that the price of a good woman is beyond rubies. There is nothing real
m this world but goodness. Wealth
takes to Itself wings and flies away;
genius is a glittering light that fades
while we admir it; beauty Is but i
flower vanishing while yet Its per
fume lingers on tbe air. But goodness!
Its feet are upon tbe earth but its
arms are locked around the throne of
Ood. It adorns time, but it perishes
not in eternity. It is an efTuence of
divinity, and as immortal as the great
architect himself.
If man dwelt alone upon this earth
without the companionship uf the other
���ex, and an angul uume down and
depleted to him lu glowing terms all
that a good woman is, tho unrnptured
listeners would give tho whole world,
yea a universal world, to possess
sich a composite and perfect creature.
In the opinion of tho lending mining and smelting uion of thu country
there is very little cause for worry In
the present smelter situation. Much
has been written in regard to It and
those who are not thoroughly fiimil
Im- with the matter have been lead to
believe that tho bottom was going to
fall out of mining entirely unless the
American smelters changed their tac-
tlrs. It Is unfortunate thut storlus re
luting to the mining industry of tbe
Kootenays should be subjected to so
DlUch e.inggerntion. No good purpose
Is served by suob coloring. Instead,
the effect Is injurious. Newspapers
and men who bave nt heart the interests of the Kootenays should not aid
in tbe circulation ot exaggerated stories which can only do harm.
"Everything comes to him wbo
waits," to tbe tune of "All Coons
Look Alike to Me," is being sung at
tbe city ball today by Ma/or Fletcher,
(Contributed.)
Did you ever get jumbled? Perhaps
you do not know what it is. Well,
I have just had a little jumbling experience, and it may be useful to you.
The other day while looking over an
American newspaper my attention was
attracted by a couple of bold lines
announcing "Two Thousand Dollars
���to be given away���To Brainy People." Of course, as a brainy person���
we are- all brainy persons when theru
are 13000 in sight���I became interested in thu advertisement and proceeded to peruse it very carefully. Tho
result was the astonishing discovery
that for simply solving a jumble of
letters, and so arranging thorn thut
thev would spell three great places
marked on the map of the world, I
would be entitled to the whole or
part of the liberal prize. I hud a leisure half-hour that evening, and I devoted it to the solution of the problem. I tried to so arrange the letters
that they would spell New York, London, Paris; but thiB would not work.
Then I tried Constantinople, Moscow, Amsterdam. Again a failure,
for I had a Y over. Several further
efforts were equally unsuccessful,
and I began to think that after all, I
was not to be one of the brainy people
who would share in the distribution
of the two thousand. Now, while
other branches of my education may
have been neglected, I have always
considered myself a cracker-jack in
Geography and Scripture, and the
idea of being puzzled over a simple
jumble of letters was anything but
pleasant. I tried to accommodate the
letters to several well-known cities
cf the world, to battlefields, pleasure
resorts, pilgrimages, volcanoes, deserts, convict stations, etc., etc., but
all without success. But I was not
to be defeated, so rinding myself humming:
"If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try try again,"
I turned my utention homewards,
and after some further serious thought
succeeded in arrajging the letters so
that tbey spelt Nelson, Kuskanook,
Moyie. Not one over this time���not
one short.
The next step towards securing the
two thousand or part thereof, was to
forward my solution of the problem
to the given uddrcss, and enclose a
two-cent stamp to defray postage on
the letter which was to inform me
whether I was successful or otherwise. All this I did, in strict conformity with the rules laid down.
The other day I was agreeably surprised to receive a very polite typewritten letter from the firm addressed
announcing thut they hud the pleasure of informing mo thut my solution
was absolutely correct, and that the
answers were to be referred to a com
ittee, who would award the prizes
according to precedence. I waB further invited to huve my name placed
upon tbis committee, and assured
that all my traveling nnd hotel ex
ponses would be paid, and In nddition
I would reuelve 85 per day as a slight
compensation for my loss of time,
This was nil very satisfactory, but an
unfortunate postscript dispelled my
dream of trnvel and opulence. It Bet
forth that before I could participate
in all those good things it would be
necessary to secure two subscribers
for a certain mugazine and forward
82 for same, with another two-cent
stump so us to secure a prompt ack
nowledgmeat of the receipt of the
cash.
I have not secured those two sub
sorlbers yet. Will anyone give me 8:
for my full half Interest in those
82,000? I will make no claim for
my jumbling services.

CABEERS FOR WOMEN
Nelson Dailv Miher, Tubsdav Evbkinq, Januarv 15, 1901

"SS5
N0WADAY8     THERE     ARE     OTHER
PATHS BESIDES TEACHING OPEN.
In Moat Fields There Are, However,
Drawbacks ��� One Woman Who
Write* Advertisement,���Another la
st Co-operative Marketer.
"My success?" eaid the woman whose
career is a reason for envy in many another breast. "It has been due to good
luck and the possibility of grasping my
opportunities."
If she had changed tbe order, giving
preference to her ability, it might have
been better, although gi . luck sometimes baa a place, apparently If not really-
Teaching used to be the one career tbat
beckoned to women. And in the path of
the teacher they flocked. Fortunately
not every one makes a success in that
line. In spite of all that is said or bus
been said about the teacher's work being
a mission it Is a rather oue sided sort of
mission at the best. It may act directly
for tbe heni'lit of those who arc taught,
but it doesn't react for the beiiclit of the
Other side. In fact, there are few Hues
of work thnt are so narrowing in their
tendencies. The very young aud new
teacher may find time for hroadcuiug
study, but sooner or later she settles
quite Inevitably into a rut. Of course if
ahe isn't a successful teacher she may be
Interested in any number of things out-
aide her Work. And again if she isn't
successful she may be crowded out into
discovering some original Hue of work
that she suits and that suits her. And
that I, where she Is fortunate. It is the
woman who becomes the discoverer of a
career and forsakes the old, well trodden
path, who shines as a bright, particular
���tar.
Did you ever hear anything about the
Woman who brings up a family having a
thankless task? That is said once In
awhile, side by side with the remark that
children are naturally sellish. But the
Inevitable and unanswerable reply ha,
been that the love that exists between a
mother and her children counterbalance,
all the sacrifices that have to be made.
But that lore doesn't grow spoutnncously
between the teacher who spends her mental and physical strength for her pupils
and the pupils who look upon her ns an
enemy because she insists that I hey shall
learn. There are beautiful exceptions, to
be sure, but as a general thing her position i, no sinecure. She seldom has time
for keeping up with the newest method,
or the most advanced ideas, and, with
fresh Installment, of young women ready
to step Into her shoes, she Is sometimes
crowded to the wall.
Teaching certainly does hare its drawbacks, and so hare most careers. If any
exceptions are to be made, they would be
in regard to the unique fields that individual women bave chosen. The fields
themselves and the way they opened up
are both interesting. The woman advertiser is rare. One woman who has been
most successful In that line Is a young
English woman. Her aspirations now
lead ber toward becoming a writer of
plays, and they are aspirations that will
likely be fulfilled. She didn't begin with
an idea of becoming an advertiser. In
fact, the very first position fie* which she
applied in New York was that of secretary to the manager of a prominent house
for women's clothing. That was a position that she never secured. Instead the
more pleasing one came her way of designing in water colors nil the costume,
> / that were made In the establishment.
From that she went on to be the designer
In one of the largest department stores,
only to work into tbe advertising department after a little. The fact that advertisements she writes attract the attenion
of all who see them cannot bo denied.
And that, to be sure, Is the primary motive of an advertisement. Since she is
successful she meets with a due share of
envy. Sometime, tbe woman who falls
consider, the woman who doesn't fail as
tbe person at fault.
In quite a different line another young
woman saw certain possibilities aud set
herself to develop them. It wns nothing
greater tk/in the stuffed date that gave
her an Idea. Any woman might easily prepare It for herself, she knew. But she
also knew that the majority of New York
women prefer to buy nn article ready
Sreparcd to fussing with it themselves.
0 she began stulling dates with English
walnuts, packing them In boxes uttract-
Ivcly and then lulling orders. From that
alight beginning the business hns grown
until now she employs about SO women
to keep up with her trade.
It Is tho first woman on the field who Is
the lucky woman. Those who ore not
quick enough to originate lines for them-
aclvca aro quick to follow a brilliant example. The office of the woman advertiser, for instance, Is besieged by the
numbers of those who want to know just
now she does It.
"Remember," said one of them Impressively, "unless you tell me just the
way you go to work you are taking the
Very bread out of my mouth."
Not exactly aesthetic, but very sensible
and wltbal remunerative, is the career of
the co-operative marketer, It Is a line
that Is unique as well, for, altliougli the
r co-operative shopper Is by uo means rare
thero 1, but one womnn, so far as Is
known, who makes a business of marketing In New York. You sec, few women
like to go to market. There Is a certain
humdrum monotony about buying nients
and vegetables and llsh and salmis today
only to begin again and go over the
(round tomorrow. The woman of the
household frequently effects n compromise by giving her orders to the grocer's
boy or the market mnn on his rounds.
But she Is never really pleased even so,
for It is far better to be on the ground
and pick out the choice cuts ami the best
of everything In person. The woman
marketer saw that point and began by
relieving three of her friends of tho duty
they disliked, making niiit she could
from tbe per cent the manret men would
allow her. She has enlarged her list
since and now declares it closed, with 14
households enrolled. She has a regular
salary of nearly ��3,000 a year. Her
work Is thoroughly systematized. Every
morning she visits the market, Inspects
the articles carefully and orders for each
ef her families for tho day. Buying In
such large quantities, sh�� gets a reduction In prices of which her customer,
bare the benefit. After that she makes
ber round,, visiting each of the 14 house-
bold, and taking the orders for the next
day. Although the making out of the
menus waa not Included In her original
��� P00'""-1' ���"���*��� "">' <s a work that the
j\ P housekeepers put more and more over
upon her shoulders. If you want to become a woman marketer, make a specialty of planning delicious menus, It is a

BLOWN TO ATOMS.
The old idea that the body sometimes needs a powerful, drastic, purgative pill, has been exploded; for
Dr. King's New Life Pills, which are
perfectly harmless, gently stimulate
the liver and bowels to ex-pel poisonous matter, cleanse the system and absolutely cure Constipation and Sick
Headaohe. Only 25 cents at the Canada Drug   & Book Store.
A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Boshee, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it docs, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test oi years, giving satisfaction
in every case, whicli its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Hosche's German Syrup was introduced in the United States in 1808,
and is now sold in every town and
village in tbe civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.

Another   contest   for   water   rights
came up today   before   Mr.    John   A
Turner,assistant commissoner of lands
and works.    In  today's case, the cltl
zens of Slocan City   are   applying   for
water rights   on   Springer   and   Gout
creeks In anticipation of incorporation
as   a   city   In   the   nenr   future.    On
Springer   Creek   300 Inches   are asked
for to be utilized In generating power
for electric lighting   and   other   purposes, and for flushing sewerB wlieun
system of sewerage Is put In.    No opposition in expected to this part of the
application. The second portion of the
case applies to Goat Creek where 500
Inches is required for a city water
system, and this is being opposed by
a private corporation which desires to
corral the water. The citizens were
represented by C. E. Smithenngale.
editor of the Slocan Drill, and W. A.
Anderson.
A committee uf Moyie citizens, appointed to investigate Ihe matter,have
made a report as follows "We the
undersigned committee, representing
the citizens of Moyie, after fully investigating the matter have reached
the conclusion that there are a sufficient number of white persons in Moyie
doing laundry work to handle the
work of the town and that there is no
necessity of further patronizing the
Chinese laundties. We further recommend that after next Monday the Chinese of Moyie shall not be given any
support whatever." This was observed
by a majority of the citizens of Moyie
yesterday and in addition a large
number of the storekeepers hung in
front of their stores, these signs, "No
Chinese Einproyed Here."
At the police court this morning
Robert Thompson, a hobo who reached town on the previous evening, was
eharged with theft. Thompson was
caught red-handed in the act of ransacking the living apartments bver
the Manhattn saloon and was arrested
by "onstable Hislop. Magistrate
Crease sent Thompson to the Provincial jail for six months at hard labor.
An amusing feature of the case was
that the police weie originally called
in by Thompson. When "Doc"
Boyd, the wine cleik at the Manhattan, found a man going through his
belongings he promptly kicked the
intruder down a flight of stairs.
Thompson shouted "Murder" and
"Police," and when the constable
arrived laid an information against
Boyd. The facts came out quickly,
however, and Thompson was the man
who   wore the handcuff's.
THEY SAID FAREWELL.
Last Meeting of Old City Council Held
Last Night.
The city council of IBOd bade farewell to publio Iif3 at the city hall last
night. The closing session was attended by Mayor Houston and Aldermen McKillop, Arthur, Irvine und
Morrison, Aid. Hull being called away
by prolebsional duties, while Aid.
Wilson was out of the city. The business of the meeting consisted largely
of the passage of a big budget of accounts, supposed to contain all of the
current obligations of the old council.
Mayor Houston informed the board
that he had secured tho water record
for 1,000 miner's inches of water at
Kootenay Crossing, in the vicinity of
which it is proposed to erect the suggested powerhouse for lighting and
power purposes. The matter came up
during the day at the office of John
A. Turner, assistant commissioner of
lands and works,and the corporation's
application was grunted despite opposition. The next step iu the power
house campaign is to secure a millsite,
surveys for which are being made today. This was practically all the business transacted and on its conclusion
the members fell into the vein facetious. Alderman McKUlop suggested
that the mayor absolve the balance of
the council from their sins of omission and commission during the year,
whereat n general laugh arose. Alderman Irvine wanted the meeting to
adjourn for a year.
The mayor thought the council of
19(10 could rest assuned that they had
expended all the money the people
had put up during the year, to which
Aldorman Arthur added the amendment that the expenditure might prove
to have exceeded the revenue. The
liiBt resolution of the council of 1900
was then moved by Alderman McKillop and Irvine. It was for an adjournment sine die, and on its passage the
ex-city fatheis filed into the street

TBtftH IN TnE NEWSPAPERS.
(New York Tribune.)
"A newspaper that will tell the
truth." Nothing, no doubt, is more
desirable than that. Yet are we not
compelled to asK with Pilate, but in
serious earnestness, What is truth?
Ask any dozen average men, intelligent, judicious, truth-loving, their
version of or their opinion oa any
important public occurrence. You
will get a dozen different replies.
Each will be given with truthful intent, but each will be���perhaps unconsciously and involuntarily, but
no less certainly���colored or modified
by the personal medium through
which the absolute truth is seen.
There can, of course, be no defense of
wilful lying in the press. But that is
rare. What many well-meaning men
criticise as untruthfulness is no such
thing, but only a different view of
the case which differs from their own,
because of the different personal factor, but it is not one whit less honest
und truthful in intent.
