BAUlf&HT FROM
Nelson  the Natural
For Interior Lumber
Trade.
What Is Being Done by the
Leading Saw Mills
Here.
j Next to the C. P. R. and the smelter, the industry that employs the
most men in Nelsou and vicinity is
��� the lumber business. Although'. the
" trade is but in its infancy here, al
ready It has reached such proportions
that one lumber firm in the city spends
150,000 per year in salaries to the
men employed. The lumber merchants of Nelson, nt lirst had to compete at a great disadvantage with
the large Coast firms, which by
handling large quantit'es of lo^s and
employing Chinese labor, more than
counterbalanced the freight rates be
tween hero and the Coast. This, however, will not be the condition of
things any longer.
The Nelson firms are now handling
logs on a scale equal to any of the
CoaBt dealers and by utilizing certain
natural advantages here can more than
hold their own in thc future.
The Nelson   Saw   A   Planing   Mill
Co., Ltd., nt present  hnve a drive   of
logs on the ways valued   nt 821,000 as
they   a.re.   These   logs   were  cut   in
Deep Creek, near llonner's Ferry, and
" at Lib.;, Montana.   The firm is  try-
���" ing the experiment  of   driving   them
. as far as  Kootenay   Landing,   where
' they will be made up in   booms,    and
towed to Nelsou.   Heretofore,the logs
' have been towed in booms from where
'they were cut, but the high' water and
'Bwift current of   the   Kootenay   river
1 Bfloth of the lake at present makes the
��� driving of the timber easier and more
convenient than by the other method,
Tbe timber  of   this   district,   in   the
section   where  it   is   plentiful, is  of
first class quality, and of good dimensions, some being nine feet in diameter.
J. A. Say ward's men are handling a
large shipment of  logs at tbe present
time.   While   the lumber business   is
-lack   all  the   dealers   realize that It
la but a temporary condition,  and are
utilizing it   to gather   in the logs   to
lie ready   for the resumption of  busy
times again.   Mr.   Sayward  has   im*
uiense timber reservations in the Lardeau district, which,however, are not
be(ng drawn upon at the present time,
this season's out being princitally up
Goat river, a mile or so from where it
empties into Kootenay  Lake.   It will
also be floated down  to the 'ako  and
formed'' Into booms.   In the   Lardeau
' district'the cedar in   of   fine quality,
easily holding first place for the manufacture  of  shingles   in  comparison
with, any from   the Coast.    Tbis   fact
is now recognized   generally,   and   it
will  be   but   a   short   time after the
opening up of the timber berths there
before Lardeau shingle's will be great
ly in demand.
The Porto Bico Lumber Company
{have Urge timber holdings between
Summit and Porto R'co Siding along
-the line"of the, .Nelson <fe Fort .Sheppard railway. This company handles
all Its timber with teams, that being
the easiest and most economical method in the section of country in which
they operate. When the timber be-i
oomes scarce in the vicinity tbe mill
will be moved on further Into tne
woods.' The other lumber firms here
also do a good business.
Nelson aiaeh year is becoming more
and more the centre and distributing
pdint'of liot'only the Kootenays, but
also of the districts contiguous, the
shipments-to the Slocan, Boundary
and Lardo now constituting a large
item In the business deaings of the
various NelSon wholesale, s. In this
the lumber dealers have their share,
and a good one.
'The cut in eaBtern Canada this year
was very large, but it is one which
very few years more will see decrease
to small proportions. As it is tho logs
now, after being teamed some distance have to be driven in some cai-es
three ahd four hundred miles down
difficult streams and the owners have
to depend on a good spring freshet to
get them out. Each year the accessible timber districts in New llruiis-
wick, which wore In 1873 by Thorean,
the famous traveller and writer,   estimated to be   "the   largest   stretch   of
unbroken   forest, and the   finest   tini-1
b.'r In the world." Bhrink   to smaller j
dimensions.
Ontario is still worse off than New
Brunswick. In Quebec the timber
Centre > wl'.l liiBt longer, but even there, nothing nan be found to approach the
stately forests of British Columbia,
where in many places every tree is
straight and good for lumber. When
the time comes, as it quickly' will,
for Hritish Columbia's great lumber
boom Nelsou will undouttcdly get the
lion't s.are of thc interior trade.

(SPBCIAL, TO THIS MIN Kit.)
Toronto, .June 4.���A tragedy of altogether unwonted and thrilling character, occurred at Toronto this afternoon. Three men, Rice; Rutledge and
Jones, Chicago criminals who' have
been undergoing trial at sessions for
robbing a bank at Aurora, were being
driven In a ba.k back to the gaol
about 0 o'clock this evening. County
Constable Boyd and one prisoner sat
on one seat and the other two prisoners sat opposite. All the prisoners
were handcuffed and the two seated
together were also handcuffed' together. County Constable Stewart sat out
side, with the hack-river. As the
hack passed the corner of. Sumach
and Qerrnrd streets, a strange man appeared suddenly and one after tl e
other threw three revolvers into the
hack window. The prisoners succeeded in picking tbem up and immedi
atelv began firing. Constable Boyd.

head.   The back was  stopped and the_l~��rel. and simply to add to the le
prisoners jumped out and sprang on a
passing street car ordering the motor-
man to go abea.. The car man, however, showed fight. The conductor,
with great presence of mind, pulled
the trolley pole off the wire and
blocked the car. The motorman strng
gled with the ruffians and the conduc
tor came quickly' to his assistance
Meanwhile Constable Stewart and the
hack man had also come quickly up,
and the whole three were captured.
A neighboring grocer who lied see n.the
man throw thc revolvers into the hack
chased him for several blocks, bit
finally lost sight of this unknown accomplice, i
' Constable Boyd, who had been left
in the hack, was attended to by "itl-
zens who tool: him into the general
hospital hard by, but- Boyd hardly
lived to reach the hospital. The trial
of tbe three men would probably bave
been concluded . tomorrow morning
and this was almost the last chance of
escape they would have. ��� They had
evidently been carefully planning it
and had counted on overawing the car
officials and rushing off in the car.
Jones, one of the desperadoes, was
wounded In the arm and his arm will
have tb be amputated. It is uncertain
who fired the fatal shot at Boyd; but
all three now will doubtless have to
stand trial for minder.               ,' ~. .

A week or two ago Mr. Wm. Thompson, of Rossland, published a letter in
The' Miner of that city, criticising
y freely an Act respecting the inspection of boilers which was passed
at the last session of the Legislature.
He said: "In the old Provinces
and cities where Bills for th<s purpose
have become law, it is customary for
the Act to. provide that when boilers
are insured in some recognized Steam
Boiler Inspection A Insurance company and regularly examined and reported upon by that company's inspectors,- the Government will accept that'
report as fulfilling the provisions of
the Act.
"No such provision as this is made
in tbe British Columbia statute, and
very naturally this excites our wonder, as to what reason our Provincial
legislators could have for eliminating
this eminently just provision from
their Act. If anyone made the bald
assertion   that   this Act   was
Actual additional cost tooivner
of plant over abo~e for Government examination without
benefit accruing from   insur- !
ance   252 50 !
"A review of the foregoing will
show how our legislators have been
treating the industrial enterpises of
the Province. That the Boiler Inspection Act should be passed no business
man wonld for a moment doubt, but
why not exempt such steam plants as
were properly examined and insured
by standard insurance companies? If
any insurance company can afford
the responsibility of carrying large Insurance on a steam plant aud having
quarterly examinations made by the
most skilled experts, who are entirely independent snd alive to their responsibility, surely the Provincial
Government could afford to reduce
their charges to the same ratio.
"But tho exorbitant compensation
to be paid to the inspectors,as provided for in the Act, is a small part of
the evil imposed by the Bill. For instance : The examination of the Le
Roi plant would- mean a close down
of three days, during which time
there would be a direct loss of more
than one-tenth of a month's earnings,
Here is an example of thc pure auss-
edness and aamphooli.hness of our
legislators. If there Is a possible
chance of imposing unjust and useless
burdens on the mining industry in
this Province,and they have missed it,
the fact should be made known at
once, so thai the agent of the Province, soon to sail for London, could be
furnished with tbe fact, as he will
need it very badly to point out to possible investors in London."

lative burdens that have been heaped
on industrial enterprises from time to
tims.a eursory reader who has not followed the course of legislation affecting the industrial enterprises of the
Province for the past four years would
bo dispose to discredit the statement.
But what ar$ tbe facts? According to
ttie provisions-of the Act referred to,
tbe first inspection of the boilers connected with the steam plant of the
Le Roi mine will coat, that company
8340, for Which they get���what? Atiy'
report or guarantee as- to tbe conditions of: boilers? No. The Le Roi'
steam plant, under,consideration, liiie
that of every other mining company,
is insured in a well known .standard
insurance company in the sum ot ��70, -
000 against damage by-explosion, collapse or rupture, and against loss of
life and property, to this amount,
from any of these causes.
The insurance named provides for
the examination of the boilers both
internally and externally every three
months by the insurance, eompany's
inspectors,who report the exact condition of the boilers to their company
and give a copy of their report to the
insured. For these services {aud the
protection afforded by ihe insurance
ear.ied fhey only ask' the sum of 8350
per annum, as against SMO required
for one examination, made by the inspectors appointed by the provisions
of tbe Inspection Act referred to.
"There can bo' no doubt about the
thoroughness of ��� the insurance company's inspection, or the ability of
their Inspectors; for the. responsibility
the insurance company assumes is a
substantial guarantee that tbey will
einploy only thoroughly trained and
reliable inspectors.
The commercial results of the two
inspections made foi the Le Roi steam
plant���one made   by the inspector under the Act referred to and  the  other
made by the inspectors of the insurance
company���-may be saen from   the  following comparisons:

SCHOOL MATTERS.
It is to be hoped the School Board
and the City Couneil of Nelson will
not, like those of Vancouver, find
themselves at loggursheads. The people here urged upon the (Iovernment
the extreme desirability of handing
over control of the schools and establishing a High School. The former
the. (iovernment arc doing, and
are providing also for the
other. Thc situation, therefoie, is
not only one of our own fjliooB-
ing but one of our own urging. The
School Board is in charge, and in addition to the ways and means necessary to carry on our Public Schools it
is also expected to provide for a
Uigh School at the earliest possible
date. So far the Board is doing only
that which is expected of it. We cannot have an elaborate school system
without the expenditure ol money.
Indeed, it requires a good deal of
money, as the ratepayers will discover for themselves as time goes on. If
not prepared to spend the money,' we
should have so determined before un
dertaking the responsibilities. In
many of tbe larger cities the school
tax is becoming extremely burdensome, and conflicts are occurring in
eonBcqucnce between Councils and
School Boards. But it is not the fault
of the Boards. In Ontario, in Manitoba, in all the Provinces, in fact,
with the exception of Quebec, it is the
fault of the system. We make education free. We do this because we are
a vastly intelligent and progressive
people. Not primary education only,
but education that fits one for the
professions. The list of studies for
tbe average school boy of today would
throw our grandfathers into a fit. We
pay for all of them out of the public
purse. It is a giand thing, this free
education���until we come to pay for
it. But if we insist on the system,
we should be game enough not to
complain of the cost.
A part of the s.i stem as we have it
here is a High School. We all clamored for a Iligh School, until the way
was prepared for having it. The
Sihool Board is no more responsible
than the rest of us, only it has to
provide the ways and means. That is
a duty imposed by the law of the
land. Between the City and the Government it is endeavoring to procure
Bid enough to put the entire system
here in a position which the needs
and the dignity of the town are supposed to warrant. That is entirely
right from its point of view, and if
we are as eulhusiastic for the system
as wc pretend we shall give to the
last dollar required. We asked for a
High School, and the proper thing

OUR   ISLANDS.
The Victoria Colonist Is doing good
public service in publishing a seriee
of articles on the natural resources
of British Columbia, Its third article
treath of the island possessions of the
Province. There nre very few, we
tako it, to whom even thc partial
enumeration of those will not prove a
revelation. We all know of Vancouver Island, of course, the queen of the
lot of them ; but of tho many others
there are names that sound strangely
unfamiliar, considering they are port
and parcel of the Province we inhabit. Between Vancouver Island and
the mainland and northerly, there
is an archipelagic, of which the principal members arc thus given: Texada, Salt Spring, the two (ialiunos,
(Jabriola, Mnyno, Saturna, Thetis,
Kuper, Dcnman, Losquitl, the two
Valdea, Hornby, Cortes, Rcnonda,
Thurlow, Cracraft, Turner, Malcolm
and l.ilford, which may be called the
Vancouver Island group; Graham,
Moresby, Louise, Lyell, Prcvost and
the others of the Queen Charlotte
group; Calvert, Hecate, Hunter, Denny. Campbell, King, Cunningham,
Chaifleld, Bardsweli, Yeo, Don.

Hudson's Bay Company.
Farrant, Gribbell, Hawkesbury, Por-
cher, Goschen, Stephens, Kennedy,
Smitb, Digby, Dundas, Wales,
Pearse and many others lying aiong
the coast between the 51st and the
55th parallels.
These are not little scrggy bits of
land or rock, mere islands by courtesy, but in many instances of large
area, covered with valuable timber
and no doubt with the precious metals stowed away below. Take Graham Island, for instance, with an
area of 2,000 square miles, or Princess
Royal, having upwards of 1,200 square
miles. The Colonist article says
that the combined area of our island
possessions is little if any short of
2,000 square miles, and of their riches
no man yet kuoweth.
Mr Thompson is not too severe in
his criticism of the Boiler Inspection
Act, passed at the last session of the
Legislature, As a matter of simple
business all the mining companies of
any magnitude keep their boilers insured, and under the terms of their
policy these are inspected quarterly.
The inspection is a genuine one, too,
and not perfunctory, such as is too
often tho case with a Government official. These mining companies, in addition to their insurance premium
for an inspection that is of real service, have to pay a heavy fee for a
Government inspection that is precisely of the same value as a fifth wheel
to a coach. Mr. Thompson is inclined
to suspect that the Government Were
inspired, when drafting the Bill, with
a desire to harass the miners; our
own opinion is that they were merely
suffering from an acute attack of that
chronic stupidity which characterises
all their actions in relation to the
mining industry.
j_A Washington dispatch says that if
there is to be a session of the Joint
High Commission th's year the initiative must come fiom Canada, as that
was the understanding two years ago
when the sittings were discontinued.
This may serve as an explanation of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's conddence in
declaring 'ram his place in Parliament the other day that the sittings
of the Commission would be resumed.
If the lead is in Canada's hand, no
one knows it better than the Premier.
But we have another dispatch, tbis
time from Ottawa, saying that tbe
Premier, Mr. Sifton, and other Ministers would leave the Capital for the
Coast about July 1st, and go on to
Dawson. That would probably mean
late in August or the beginning of
September before they returned, and
meantime there will be no meeting
of Commissioners.
Says Mr. H. Mortimer Lamb, in The
Victoria Colonist: "It is well knowi.
in certain quarters that the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. took preliminary steps last winter with a view to
establishing lead refining works in
conjunction with the Trail smelter.
The project was, however, evidently
postponed in anticipation of a Government Subsidy for the production of
refined lead in Canada. Now that
the subsidy bas been granted, it is
reported that the erection of a lead
refinery by the Company is to be at
once proceeded with, although it
has not yet been finally decided
whether the works will be established
in Kootenay, at the Pacific Coast, or
at some point on the Atlantic sea
board. Of the three, it is likelv that
euonomii conditions favor the Coast,
as the best location for works of this
character."
A dismal croak oomes from The
Greenwood Miner, which says that
"there is likely to be a repetition of
the capital-labor difficulties of two
years ago in the Kootenays " The
reference,   of course, is to the   North-
port trouble. There is no difference
so far disclosed which a little moderation and good sense cannot patch
up. The management ard the men
will come ta terms no doubt, but
in any caRe there is nn visible reason
why the trouble should extend beyond
Its present limits.
A RAGING,   ROARING FLOOD
Washed down a telegraph line
which Chas. C. Ellis, of Lisbon, la.,
had to repair. "Standing waist deep
in icy water," lie writes, "gave me
a terrible "cold and cough. It jf_w
worse daily. Finally the best doctors in Oakland, Neb., Sioux City
and Omaha said I had Consumption
and could not live. Then I began using Dr. King's .New Discovery/and
wns wholly cured by six bottles."

TRlEDjlfOR AHHAULT-
���'the police comt as a witness on the
.trial of the men, Frank Pollan and
Fred Bloomfleld, who are accused of
the robbery. It appears that the witness came to the city on Saturday
' evening in possession of a good wad
i of greenbanks, and as they are sup-
��� posed to be a flue sight for sore eyes,
.the prisoners, Buffering from the general eye complaint, quite naturally
. desired to apply the remedy in their
own cases by relieving the stranger of
v what was evidently a burden to him.
At least that is what waB supposed,
but the witness has so far failed to
prove the charge against them. All
that he appears to know about it is
that IiIb money has dispoeared but by
whom it was taken he has apparently
no moans of ascertaining. It appears
that on Saturday he was having a
good timo and made very free with
tbe boys aid was returning home
from a visit to Borne of his friends liv-
.. ing in the neighborhood of the lake
. ,|rront when ho was assaulted by a
couple of men whom he failed to recognize. A hatui was placed across his
mouth, another invaded his pocket
where be kept his money. This occurred on Hall street and after liberating himself from their clutches he
chased them up Hall street until they
came to Vernon street where ho lost
the trail. The above fellows wore ar-
tested on suspicion hot in their trial
on Monday and Tuesday nothing has
yet been revealed to prove that they
are the parties who have committed
the hold-up, and the case was again
remanded until this morning when
eleven witnesses will be examined.
Meanwhile the prisoners will remain
In durance vile. The name of the individual who has been received bo
roughly on his arrival in the city is
Charles Johnson and not Nelson as
previously reported.
A man named Morris was made to
appear before Magistrate Crease yesterday for celebrating too freely in
tho use of thut which some man of
experience has said Bteals away the
brains, and for his foolish act ho was
mulcted of the Bum of 85 and costs.
SATURDAY'S REOATTA���
Interest in the coming regatta is
increasing every day, and there is a
prospect that there will ho some
good sport when the evtnt takes
place. In addition to tho eight crews
previously mentioned another one
has been added, consisting of the following, J. tl. Bunyan, bow, E. E.
McLaughlin, (2), D. MeNichol (3),
Mayor Fletcher, (stroke.) A committee meeting of tho Uoat Club will he
held in the course of a few days to
arrange the courses and draw for positions in the events, of which due
notice will be given to those interested.
RIFLE SU00T8-
liieutcnant Philips, secretary of'the
Rille As.aiclation, is in teceipt of the
following communication from Captain W. H. Davidson, secretary of the
Canadian Military Rifle League,
which will be of interest to a large
number of the readers of The Miner.
Writing from Quebec on the 25th of
May the writer Bays, "Owing to the
fact that many rille ranges will not
be ready for use before the middle of
June and as it Ib very desirable that
all teams Bhould fire their matches on
the same days, thc executive have decided to alter the date of the first
mutch from June !st to July (1th.
You will therefore, be good enough
to notify this change of date to the
members of your teams."
HE WAS OBLIGED���
A man named McEachran introduced himself to the police yeatarday,
in a state of terrible excitement and
poured into the ear, of the obliging
blue coat a muddled up story about it
being tbeir duty to put seme one in
the lock np. Ever ot an obliging disposition, und seeing no one else in
sight worthy of such accommodation,
the man himself was favored, as his
boozy condition made it quite apparent that he was unable to clearly state
his wishes. He will be given the
privilege of explaining Iub grievance
before Magistrate Crease at the police
court this morning.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to bis astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had loBt fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned .to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs ns
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."

G01   OUT.
Tje Food Cure Btoueht Her Out With
Flying Colors.
A lady in Laurence.Ind. Mrs. M. C,
Waring, wa3 a poor judge of food und
also a worker in literary and educational lines where she exhausted her
vitality because of the bad combination of a load of work and poorly selected food to rebuild her.
She was using hot cakes for breakfast, meat, coffee, etc., and gradually lost ground until she became a
total wreck. She says, "I was so reduced that the slightest noise brought
a cold pei.pitation all over me. .Sleep
was out of the quostion and my
appetite was gone. I was apprehensive of all sorts of disaster. I became
really very ill. I was on the verge of
li.sing my mind when one day a
friend who sat at my bedside remarked that she would bring me something
nice to eat.
Sure enough when she came over
she had a dainty luncheon on a tray
with pretty decorated china dishes,
eto. A cup held some coffeo, as I supposed, and a dish held some hard,
brown granules, and she told me that
was Orape-Nuts Food, whereas th��
liquid <vas Postum Coffee.
I liked the taste of tbe Grape-Nut^
with a little cream and ate all of it.
After some persuasion I drank the
Postum Coffee and that night was tbe
most peaceful night I had enjoyed ii
months, and when I awakened in the
morning I found the Grape-Nuts package on tne table near my bed, and 1
had some for breakfast with some
Postum Coffee.
I at once began to feel better and
discarded all kinds of medicine, stimulants, narcotics, and used only
drape-Nuts four times a day with
Postum Coffee. At the end of thirty
days I left my hed and after thr.e
months building up on Grape-Nuts
Food and the famous Postum, I have
taken up my literary work, working
harder than ever making up for lost
time.
Mental strains have no more terrors
tor me, I keep my mental faculties
clear. All ray inner organs have become clear and healthy so I never
know I have any, yet I work and
study sixteen hours out of the twenty-
four on an average. 1 often wonder
what has become of those dreadful
nerves. Things that formerly disturbed me now seem trifles.
A healthy holy is a happy body, so I
go about singing and happy, come
sunshine or rain. Drupe-Nuts and
Postum lifted me out of a sick bed,
and Grape-Nuts Food has since
brought my little daughtei through a
Bevere case of scarlet fever. Grape-
Nuts was the only food she could take
and the doctor said she would have
died had it not been for the nourishment given her by Grape-Nuts Food.
Do you wonder we believe in the famous food?"
There is a reason why the Postum
CoiT.e and Grape-Nuts are towers of
strength in times of trouble. Anyone
can learn the fact and the reason if
they care to make searching Inquiry.
The company furnish the details, but
It is sufficient to most people to
know that whereas they havo been
poorly treated, and perhaps wrecked
with disease from improper food, the
change to Orape-Nuts and I'ostum has
made them well.
BIRTH NOTICE���
Born to Mrs. W. E. Mildren on Sunday, the 2nd inst.   a daughter.
THREE NEW COTTAGES���
Three new cottages, all small ones,
have been erected duiing last week
at the terminus of the stteet car line.
RENOVATING THE MOYIE-
Thc steamer Moyie has been hauled
up at the shipyards, where she is undergoing a repainting and other
renovating work.
SHOULDN'T OVERLOOK TRAIL���
There Is some talk of organizing a
baseball team from the Cranbrook i, id
Fernie teams to go to Rossland and
Nelson some time in July.
.SLOCAN INCORI'ORATED-
Au extra of the B. C. Gazette has
been issued declaring Slocan to bo an
incorporated city on and from the 1st
inst. Nominations for mayor and six
aldermen will be held on the 15th.
MADE GOOD COLLECTIONS���
During their tour of the mines of
the Kootenay some of the students secured small samples of the ores from
each place visited, making a first
class collection and one well wortli
taking east.
PUTTING UP NEW POLKS���
The telephone poles to carry tbe
wires heretofore held up by the electric light poles are rapidly being put
in place. Most of the work in town
is done, the men now working out
towards the park.
WATER NEARLY STATIONARY���
Despite the high winds of yesterday
backing the lake np, the difference
in the level of the lake was almost
imperceptible on the water guages.
If the weather remains cool the water
will fall quite rapidly for a time.
IMPROVING THE GRADE-
Gangs of men are at work near One
Mile point, levelling and improving
the grade, A train of flat cars��with
about twenty men as a erew has been
kept busy hauling stones to various
places this week near town where the
railway embankment needs strength
ening.
HADN'T ENOUGH ROOM���
Owing to the large advance sale of
tickets foi the Ladies' Guild concert
in aid of St. Saviour's church, on
Friday, .lune 7th, the committee have
decided to bold the concert in the
opera house, instead of Fraternity
hall, as more than the seating capacity of latter hall bas already been
engaged.
WAVERLEY REOPENS-
J. N. Davidson Will open up the
Waverley Hotel today and will have
the inaugural dinner at the usual
hour, viz. from 5 30 until 7.30. Th.
hotel has been closed for severaj
"eekB and is being opened under enj-
tirely new management. A rearrangej
ment of the interior has been made
and the young men's sitting room will
continue to be one of tbe features of
the establishment,
WORK ON THE BARGE-
The n. P. R. freight barge.now nni-
der construction at the shipyards it
rapidly nearing completion, as tar as
the carpenter work in concerned, although the men have been greatly
hindered during the past week by' the
high water, which has been the cause
of much Inoonvenionce. The water
under the barge, is now five or. si-
feet deep, causing a great deal of
trouble in handling heavy timbers.
If the water rises any further work
will probably have to be stopped for
awhile. The barge when completed
will carry 15 cars.
"A MISSING HERO"���
This is the title of Mrs. Alexander's
latest book, which is handsomely
printed and bound by McLeod A Allen. Toronto. Readers who affect such
classics as Richardson, Fielding,
Bronte. Scott, und others whom it
would be superfl-us to name, are not
particularly enamored of Mrs. Alexander and her works; but she bas a
large circle of admirers nevertheless,
who will doubtless read the story of
her "Missing Hero" with great interest. He is a young Englishman,
whom the indiscretion of immature
years drives off to South Africa In
secrot flight, and where the most surprising of chances throws him into
contact with people who are mote or
less connected with his fortunes at
home. It takes ten years for the plot
to develop, and during that time there
is much incident and not a little promiscuous lovemaking. The missing
hero discovers himself In time; the
villain escapes with a fair measure of
reward, and all ends in orthodox fashr
ion. The book is for sale by the Canada Drug A Hook Co.
