The  Orangemen's Celebration on
the Leoi Ground a at Codf.
A large number of men with gorgeous sashes or yellow badges, and
accompanied by a well divsaed
crowd of women and children,
liacked the train for Cody on Monday afternoon. There they alighted
ana* unfurling a huge banner the
men walked in procession ta the
Codv picnic grounds to commemorate" the glorious deeds of William
of Orange.
Saudon has not had an Orange
lodge verv long, but it has 40 members, and'three-fourths of these were
proud to show themselves in the parade. But there were also some
from Silverton, New Denver and
Slocan City, the latter sending about
a dozen to help swell the ranks.
The Sandon lodge is the tirst organ-
Used in this district, but Slocan City
will have one soon.
Arrived at the grounds, a pretty
clearing in front of the blackened
ruins of Levi's hotel, Brinsley Walton, the financial secretary of the
lodge (who is also the manager of
the Slocan Queen) mounted the solitary big boulder and called the assembly to order for some speech-
making. Joseph Irwin of New Denver made the opening address, which
principally* dealt with the historical
reasons wnv Ihey were gathered to
celebrate the day. Mr. Cliffe followed, giving the historical reasons
more in detail. He exhorted them
to hold together so long as the Romish church maintained her present
character, adding that it was the
boast of that church that it never
This brought denominational religion to the front, and the Rev. T.
Menzies, who had preached a special
sermon to the Orangemen at Spencer's hall the preceding evening,was
naturally next called upon. He described how religiona darkness
brooded over the civilised world until dispersed by those great lights
Luther and Calvin, and exhorted
the members to guard well their
trust and not to shirk the duties
which they had inherited.
A. Smith of Vancouver, whose
wife, also an Orangeman, accompanied him to the picnic, also spoke,
expressing* his pleasure to find such
a nourishing branch of the order
where but a few years ago there
were no settlements. He pointed
out wherein the Orange order differed from the Odd Fellows, Foresters and others, in that there was no
pecuniary considerations in connection with it, those joining doing so
purely for tlie love of Protestant
D. M. Crowley, George Lovatt
and Rev. A.M. Sanford were also to
speak, but the programme had to be
curtailed so that the games could be
begun. There were contests of all
kinds, for young and for old and for
lioth sexes. Three pretty girls were
entered in a 100 yards race, and two
of them made a most exciting finish.
The event that attracted the most
attention, however, was the rifle
shooting contest by the fair ones.
The score made at the targets was
as follows: Miss Lovatt, 13; Miss
Nelson, 10; Miss Thomson, 5; Mrs.
Wilson, 4; Miss Webster. 2; and
Mrs. Brown, 0.
After this there was dancing on a
platform specially erected tor the
picnic, and then the baskets were
opened under the shade ot the curiously twisted mountain ash boshes,
and after that there was more da no

He Starts a Force to Open Up the
Early Bird
One of the busiest minim; men of
Kootenay, and one who is bound to
be among the most prominent, la
Frank Watson. He has interests In
everv part of British Columbia, and
flits from one to the other with great
speed. He i��* never in a hurry and
vet alwavs hustling. One-third of
his time is spent on the trains, another third in the saddle, and the
other third divided between sleep
and handshaking, for he has a host
of acquaintance*, wherever the train
service lavs him off for a few hours.
Watson came up from the Arlington'on Tuesday, and soon after daybreak Wednesday morning went
with Alex McPhee, the manager of
his Fisher Maiden property, to his
Early Bird claim, below the Wonderful mine. When he returned to
Black's hotel, he said In hb cheery
manner, and with the smile that
never leaves his smooth-shaven face:
"I am going to put a large force
on the Early Bird ami open It up
right awav. We have a good showing of gafena on the surface. We
will have to take water from the
creek above and bring it down in a
flume. I think the Early Bird will
pan out all light. I leave this afternoon for Spokane, but shall come
back next week to see how things
are going."
Where did you come from?" he
was asked.
*I came from the Arlington yesterday. We made a discovery tnerc
which we think is the main ledge.
We have opened it np in two different places, and the ledge matter,
which contains a large amount of
native silver, is apparently from DO
feet to 25 feet wide, and we have
traced it on the surface for a distance of nearly 500 feet. We have
now on the 'dock at Slocan City a
carload of very high grade ore from
the Arlington, on which we expect
to realize about 14000.
"McPhee will tell yon all yon
want to know ahout the Fisher
Maiden. We have there 18 inches
of clean shipping oris and when thc
wagon road ts completed we expect
to make regular shipments."
"Oh, the road Is all right. We
have all the money anhscrllieil and
work will begin on it next week.
There will probably lie from 100 to
lf*0 men put on it, and the road will
be finished in 00 days."
"What about your new Knssland
purchase, Frank?" (Everybody
calls him Frank, j
"The Good Fridav and the Indiana on Red mountain? Well, we
think it ia a great property. The
surface showings are simply wonder ���
ftd. They are richer, much richer,
than the Le Roi ever showed on the
surface. An assay* 1 have have Just
had made goes 207 ounces silver and
���17 in gold, and the ledge ia 40 feet
wide on the surface.
"Well, so long; I shall be back
here next week.'*

his Lova rot. oamsumo
At that time, before the Barings'
tetuoua speculation in Argentine-* had
bankrupted Capel Court, Barnato used
to dabbled in Hock*, through bis love for
gambling. In a stock broker's office,
not far from bombani street, where be
kept an aet*ount, there was almost daily
a 'progresstvc" poker game after the
clerks had clotted Uieir books and safes
aud departed. No one dined la-fore "���
and usually at S, and for two hours the
tttiffeat game of **oker I have ever seen
was played in that office.
It was not jsiker aa she is played"
in tiiia country, but starting with a first
b��| limit of $5 (a sovereign), each player
was permitted to not only raise it a
sovereign, but to double tbe pi-eoedtng
1st. This was, of course, a double case
nt bluff and fraexe out, but tbe men in
tbe game, like Barnato himself, were
gambling daily on the stock exchange in
thousands, and to tiietu it wss only a

I went with him once on a Sunday
m.irnimr down Petticoat lane, one of
the sights of l-ondou in tho**- days. He
was like a child in bit* enjoyment of tbe
slumming. He spoke to the children in
their own peculiar dialect, Itestowittg;
eoitiM upon them, antl altogether His-
(���laved that side of his nature which led
iim ten vears afterward, when he had
the whole world transfixed with amazement at the audacity antl magnilicence
of his scheme*., to hold court at breakfast time in company with a pet bulldog, at which time the humblest of his
early associates or friends was welcomed with a personal hospitality which
had a graceful charm no official audience could confer.
But in business matters he was the
Sphinx and the Great Mogul, both rolled into one. Added to this was a keen
insight into that phase of human nature
which he learned when he juggled the
public with balls and sword* and vanishing bird cages and disappearing
coins. That taught him the great
fundamental lessons of how easilv the
public is gulled and how dearly the
public loves to befooled.
P. T. Bnrnutn did not know that any
better than did Barney Barnato, but
one put it to use with the ''Woolly
Horse" and the ''Mermaid," and the
other with South African diamond
mines and golden lures. The result
was the same.
He remarked one day when some one
was commenting on the erase for brewery shares, which waa then at its
height :
"My dear boy, there are fashions in
speculations as much as there are in
coats and bonnets, and the man who
tries to sell tlte public apples when they

The ore shipments from the Boss-
land camp for last week, as shown by
the Rossland Miners report, aggregated the magnificent total of 1,806
tons.   This is the biggest week in tne
history ofthe camp and one of which
any young camD in the world might
be proud. It is more than 300 tona a
day for the six working days In the
week, and at the rate of nearly 100.-
000 tons a year. Thia ore is worth
$30 a ton at least, probably much
more, and the 1,806 tons we shipped
last -veek added to the wealth of the
world $50,000. In this connection we
would like to call attention to the

The latest advices from the Yukon
country seem to substantiate the glowing reports which have been sent out.
The Canadian Pacific is carry intr hundreds of people every week from
Ontario, while hundreds more are pouring in from the United States, and ev en
from South Africa and Aunt mi ia.

gold enough immediately to make them
wealthy: or, failing to'do thi*. goat
once to work, at big wages, for -tome of
the mine owners. The lowest wages
paid in the mines are $h* a day, and
there are men now receiving finer
hour for shoveling gravel into a sluice-
box. But it is almost Impossible for a
man who bas not a good stock of provisions to get a position in any of the
minea, as tie grt-ateat problem to be
solved there is supplies. The number of boats on the Yukon is constantly
being added to, but the development of
mining industries and increase of population are far in advance of transportation facilities. It is estimated that, at
the present rate of immigration into the
Yukon, at least 5,000 men will have to
leave that section this fall to allow the
remainder of the miners provisions to
winter on.
Tbe Yukon River was open for navigation on) v fourteen weeks last summer
and the mining section is so far from
the mouth of the Yukon that it is impossible to transport any great amount
of freight lo tbe camps in that time. A
man employed by a mining company is
presumed to be cared for by the company; that is, thev cannot see him
starve: therefore, before a rormianv
will hire a man, they must be Mtisfiei!
he has sufficient provisions to keep him
until well Into the" following summer,
at which time the river steamers are
expected to arrive with supplies. Tbe
cost of supplies in the Yukon territory
will noon tie very materially reduced,
as several companies of more or less
responsibility are now applying for
charters to reach the head of the Yukon
by railways from the coast This will
enable thousands of acres of placer
ground, which will pay from 97 to fir,
per day, to be worked,'which at present
are not considered profitable.
The main resource and industry.
however, will evidently be in quartx
mining in the Yukon'country. Two
immense bodies of auriferous quartz
have heen discovered, one crossing the
Yukon, near Forty-Mile River, and the
other near the head tributaries of the
Yukon, next to the Cassiar fountains
It l�� presumed by good authorities that
this will eventually be determined tn be
a continuous belt from near Fortv-Mile
to the Cassiars.. As yet no attention lias
been paid to quartz, as it has been Impossible to induce capital to operate

to make a name!
Probably even at that earlv date
he had heard of Joe Beet, of Montreal,
whose usual greeting to the stranger
in his dingy hostelry was "Son of tbe
world However that may be, Mr.
Smith wrestled with his dictionary
and from the materials thus cul

de Cnsinoa, which was as far away
from his natal patronvmic as the
human mind should go. Then he

been proved by actual and continued
services with engines of various shse* and
designs. They have been used in mill
work and for driving machinery of all
kinds to an extent which has put their
demonstrated usefulness far beyond the
experimental stage in which many still
seem to consider them. There are other
considerations than economy in fuel
which should also decide in favor of their
use in many cases.
One of these is the compactness of a
aa* engine plant, and its greater portability. Tlie location of a plant is usually
determined by tbat of the mine; and
our readers know in how many cases
that is such tbat the transportation of
heavy machinery is difficult and costly.
Every 'found of increased weight adds to
tbe expense; and its extension beyond
certain limits may sometimes actually
prohibit the use of a plant at all. Now
the gas engine itself is compact and its
weight cau be brought down to a very
moderate limit. It does not require a
battery of heavy boilers, and where a
producer is used it will weigh much less
and can be put in better shape for trans-
{���ortation than any form of steam generator.
Another advantage is that a required
amount of power can be furnished by a
number of small engines to very much
better advantage with gas engines. All
engineers know the greater economy of a
large steam engine, and understand tbat
tlte splitting up of the power intoa number of small motor-units is a wasteful
prot-ess. It is impossible to produce 300
or tWO horse-power in 10 or 20 eteam
engines with the same consumption of
steam and fuel that will be sufficient for
a single engine. This is the case where
the motors are near together, and where
it is advisable to place them at different
is.ints we have the added losses in condensation and other forms which cannot
be avoided in transmission of steam to
anv considerable distance from tbe generator.   Now gas engines can be divided

of lite Is'St
I'ri.ctic.dlv also this has
venient; and the comparative loss in
etficie.ncv will be very small.
Another point which is of importance
is the water supply. In very many cases
the quantity of water which can be obtained at a mine is limited; in others it
is charged with impurities, which render
its use in a boiler a source of constant
trouble aud often danger. But the gas
engine requires onlv sufficient water to
coal tlie cylinder, if tbe supply is small
it can be used over and over again, and
the qualitv bas very litUe effect; the
only precautions needed are to see that
tlie water contains no acid or otheractive
ingredient which will corrode and eat
awav tlie iroti of tbe cylinders, and the
determination of tnis is readily made.
Kconomv of fuel is an important almost everywhere, and it is especially so
at many mines where a supply is difficult
to obtain, and its transportation from a
distance is ex|*ensive, Here the advantages of a gas engine are marked. Producer gas can la? supplied from almost
any kind of fuel, even the most inferior.
Wood, sage brush, kgnite and other material which could not well be used
under a ls��iler will serve in a gas producer. In many ��*ases also it is possible to
iise gasoline or naphtha without tlie
intervention oi a producer, the volatile
oil being raporiaad in the engine itself.
The light bydrocarUms, as waste or
liv-producta from tlie distillation of oil,
are usuallv cheap and can \*e easily
transported. Their sucoessfnl use has
Iteen proved in small plants, where tlte
moderate quantities needed have been
Cirrietl over had mountain roads which

Another consideration which might be
urged is that less skilled laUir is needed
to run a gas engine. The operation of
such motors is easily taught to an unskilled man, and tbey need usually less
attention while running than does the
steam engine. The operation of such
motors is easily taught to an unskilled
man, and thev need usually less attention while running than dotei the steam
engine. This point is especially valuable
where onlv a small plant is required, as
is the case at many mines.
So far, especial reference haa been
had to the gold and silver mines of the
mountain regions of the West, and the
mines similarly situated elsewheae.
There are other places, however, where
the gas engine can be most advantageously used. In coal mines where coke
plants are attached to or located near tl s
mines the waste gases from the coke
ovens can be used to run the engines required for haulage, ventilation,pumping,
etc.. while at present the coke oven
gases are usually wasted in this country.
Many other applications of the same
kind can be suggested. We recently referred to experiments conducted at the
Seraing Works in Belgium, where large
engines have been successfully run with
the waste gases from the blast furnaces;
and there is no reason why many such
appliances should not be adopted at our
iron furnaces and other metallurgical
The gas engine merits the careful attention of our mine engineers and
managers, and we hope to see its use, in
which a beginning has already been
made, extend more and more rapidly as
its advantages are proved and realized. ���

SANDON, B. C, JULY 17, 1897.
Although Sandon is eminently
prosperous in every way, incorporation would certainly add to her
standing and aid in her progress.
Sandon has grown to its present
respectable proportions without the
advantageous aid of a boom No
place has need of a boom that has a
substantial pay roll behind it
Nelson is a government pet It
has the assizes, jail, custom Incise,
gold commissioner's office and the
recorder's office. Yet with these advantages her citizens decided to in

proposition of this country, bids fair
now to outstrip as a dividend earner
the famous Le Koi mine. The aeore
now stands: LeRoi, $425,000; Slocan
Star. $360,000.
The agricultural mining editor
published in hb sheet that the bail-
storm had destroyed Sandons wheat
crop, but be has never a word to say
of the fine crop of timothy on the
roadbed ot the K. A 8. railroad. Yet
this would be glorious news for the

Rossland is a boom town with a
population of about 8000. Sandon is
a town of steady growth with a present population of nearly 2000 and Im
mense possibilities. Her pay roll is
larger already than tbat of her much
belauded sister, and is growing much
faster. Why hesitate, therefore, on
the question of municipal government?
The few Sandonttes who hesitate
about Incorporation exclaim ''Look
at Rossland!" Well, look at Rowland. Her citizens elected a political
adventurer as mayor instead ot a
pioneer merchant The man to
whom they gave the honor of being
first mayor ha-i not even sent tor hia
family, but some of his heelers have
followed him and got fat jobs. Ia

Kimberley, May 1.���1 am six hundred
and fifty miles, or, as a colonial would
say, thirty-sis hours from Capetown.
The place is not an exciting one, hut the
journey was pleaaanter than might be
supposed. We Btop|**d at some refreshment stations for each meal���breakfast,
lunch and dinner���and these breaks of
from hslf an hour to an hour greatly relieved the tedium. I had a very comfortable carriage all to myself, with aeata
that were convertible into tolerably
good beds, with corridor snd Isvatory.
So that on the whole, I waa favorably
impressed by the management of tiie
Cape Government Railway. ITnpunctu-
ality was once its besetting sin, but
under Sir Jsmes Stvewright's direction,
great improvement!* have lieen mails in
thia respect, and on its thirty-six hours'
journey my train wait only a quarter of
an hour late.
Tbe scenery from Capetown to Kim*
berly cannot be described as exhittara-
ting. For the first hour or two you are
creasing the Cape Flats, sandy plains
that extend from Table Mountain to
Drakenatein range, at a distance of a
little more than one hundred miles.
However, the train pAtmm through what
I am assured is tlie heat tsoeaery in
South Africa. Probably I ahould bate
heen more impressed by tbe Hex River
Mountains had this description not been
applied to them; an it was, tlie expectations which it inspired were not realised.
The. range reaches a height of over IWOl)
feet, but in appearance is even more
arid and desolate than the plain below.
If disappointed in the scenic beauty
however, one cannot bnt admire tbe
engineering skill by which the apparently insurmountsbfe barriers that the
Hex River mountains offered to the railway have been overcome. In less than
30 miles there is s rise of about 2M*>
feet and the gradient* at times are om*
in forty. Even with these gradients it
was necjMsat-y to lay tbe line on tiie
corkscrew principle, and the sharpness
of the curves reminded mo of one of
Msrk Twain's stories. An engine-driver
stopped bis train one night because he
saw a red light in front of him, ami it
was a minute or two before he discovered
that it was the rear lamp of hia own
train. The story might well be told of
the Hex River mountains.
Having ascended the Hex River
meunUins, we begin the run across the
Great Karroo, the dusty plain which particularly extends right away, to Kimberley, although here and there tbe view is
&!rfalA*ir * few ���wwniah-looking trees.
Olive Bhretner, of course, discovered tlie
Karroo lor the world, and since cnniing
to the Cape I have found that she was
only expressing in her charming style,
the enthusiasm of many people who
have spent some part of their lives in its
lonely homesteads. 8o I take "The Story
of an African Farm" out of my bag and
compare my own visual impreasions with
the printed jam: ''The plain was s
weary flat of loose red sand, sparsely
covered by dry Karroo bushes, that
cracked beneath the tread like tinder,
snd showed the red earth everywhere.
Here and there a snelk bush lifted its
pale colored rods, and in every direction
the ants and beetles ran about in Uie
biasing sand. The red walla of the farm
house, the tine roof of the outbuilding,
the stone walls of the kroals, all reflect!-.!
the fierce sunlight until Uie eve acbed
and blenched."
The passage has a photographic accuracy, but aa the unchanging scene presents
itself to one, I cannot help thinking that
the taste for Karroo life must certainly
bean acquired one. Yet the bW ostriches and iheep that 1 can occaaionallv
see from the carriage window, whir**,
can gut sustenance from these little
Ksrroo bushes, represent in no incon-
* derable part of Uie wealth of (W
Colony.   Ksre   and   desolate   mm   the
country seems, Uie value of ita prttdttce
is auggesled bv Uie expensive wire fencing which, at iininv parts ex totals for
mues along the ride of the railway Hue.
Of Uie large amount of trade carried on
apart from Uie roilwav, one gets a pkv
tun>*-ue glint|*se. too in a bullock wagon
outapanneil on a rough sort of a road
which cnisscs Uie metals at right angles.
The huts and tents scattered attotit near
the stations and swings���where the
trains pass each oU*ei***-*-i��hmg, for the
most |��art to native workmen employed
in the maintenance ol the permanent
way. Tlie old mat huts of Uie natives
are in Cape Colony rapidly being replaced by more substantial dwellings,
this satistaeuiry change U'ing hastened
by a sjreetal tax which the government
impoftt** on Uie former.

The town of Whitewater is at present
experienciiigquite a nice, modest boom,
not in town lots, but in building and in
business generally. Quite a number of
new buildings have been erected thi,,
spring, and new industries added to the
Iowa's business. McLennan A Burette
art* just about completing a new hotel,
two stories aiul a half, which when eom-
Eletcd will he a most commodious hoe*
dry. J. H. McKimm has cleared
away and laid the foundation for an addition to the Whitewater, and these
together ��ith the old, reliable Jackson
hotel, will supply ample accouunodation
to the travelling public.
Nivin 6 Bell are building a large,
nea raiore. which will lie completed in
about two weeks, and it is tlieir intention to move iu immediately and enlarge
their stock.
The Whitewater company is building
bunk houses and general accomntoda
lions for WO men at the mine. It is thc
intention as soon as these are. complete
to enlarge the force, putting on about
��*�� men to commence sloping. At present onlv **�� men are at work, and no
ore is being taken out except from development.
The Wellington mine has ft) men at
work oftening up the property more

put on a much larger force and start
heavy shipping in the near future.

The ledge, as shown on the surface is
a very strong one, almort 40 ifeet wide
with walls perfectly defined. The property is worked through an incline shaft
sunk on the vein m feet. At &5 feet
drifts run along the hanging wall 250
feet each way, showing every where
large bodies of concentrating ore. At
the end of the north drift is a showing
ef four feet of remarkably fine looking
ore. The south drift connects at the
end with an old shaft now disused
which was sunk by tbe former owners.
Here the ledge is being crosscut and 40
feet of work have not yet shown the
banging wall.
The No. 2 level which is run in at 150
feet goes north and south for 25 feet
along the hanging wall to where the
ledge is crosscut ��W feet to the footwall
and drifting continued for 100 and 150
feet north and south respectively, show-
tug good ore though in some places
rather bunchy, two snd a half feet are
shown at the end of the north drift and
in several places along the lead.
No. 8 level is at the SJOu-foot. at the
bottom of the shaft, and has beeu run
south 45 feet aud north 120 feet showing
good ore bodies everywhere. Recently, on account of seepage, it has been
necessary to suspend work in this level
but it Is the intention to commence in a
week or so. Along the upper levels
the dip of the vein is *' decrees, bnt as
dentli is attained it becomes more decided and in No. 8 level ia 45 degrees.
No ore is being taken out of this
property except in development, and
very little shipping has been done, as
tlie owners intend building a tramway
antl concentrator in the near future to
handle their own ores, and the present
working is putting the mine in shape
to become a very heavv shipper when
these are completed. There are At men
at ivork on the property, with B. S.
(iuest, formerlv of the Lucky Jim, and
with Braden Bros, for a considerable
tittle, as foreman.

This is something that we read of in
moat books on Uie microscope, snd although it ie not by any means true
plant growth, it *b very curious and
beautiful. Procure a little Collomia
seed, which may be had from seedsmen, lake one of the seeds, and with a
rator, or very sharp knife, cnt off a very
thin slice. Lay this slice on a slip of
glass (an ordinary slide), cover it with a
thin glass cover, and, Uie microscope
being in a vertical position, lay it on the
stage. If you wish to incline the microscope you must use a square glass cover,
and not a round one, and hold the cover
to ita place by means of a very fine rubber ring. Now, bring the thin dice of
seed into focus and then apply a drop of
water to Uie edge of the glass. The
water will penetrate between the glaaaea
and moisten the seed, which will at once
throw out a very large number of spiral
fibres, giving it the appearance of veritable germination. Beginners will find
it easier to perform Una experiment if
one will apply the water while Uie other
looks through Uie instrument. A single
drop is enough.

���'Tomorrow on the Paris?" cried Carter, dropping his cane on the pavement
with a resounding thud.
"Yes, tomorrow," said I, gazing
with astonishment on my friend, for
my commonplace gossip had apparently
perturbed bim greatly. "The whJe
family are goiug to sail, and they wiU
be away for a year.   It's very sudden."
"Sudden! I should say so!" he exclaimed. He looked thoughtfully up the
avenue for a moment, then stammered,
'���Miss Margaret too?"
Thereupon he hailed a passing cab,
and before I could get another word
with him dived into the vehicle and
quickly disappeared with it
Carter is not a bad fellow. He is exceedingly modest Thin is a most unusual characteristic for a young man wbo
Is spending a fortune gathered by another's talents, but to so great a degree
does he possess it that it seemed to him
impossible tbat Margaret Walcott should
look upon him with ether than indifference or even repugn mice.
"Why, Vandergust," be said to me
one Sunday afternoon, when be bad
dropped iu ou his way to her house,
"it's ridiculous to rappose that a bright
girl like that could care for a fellow
like nee���a fellow wbo doesn't know
anything, who has not a striking point
except money���when there are so many
men with brains about"
But acting on my advice, he actually
started to propose that very afternoou.
"Miss Walcott" be began as they sat
by the fireplace in tbe drawing room
talking commonplaces. "I'm in love.*? ,

There waa a long silence, during
which Carter carefully drew his left
glove on liis right hand. Having recovered his courage, he continued naively:
"I know ���**. bo it's with. Do yon lnow
who it's with?"
"Yourself," she cried, clapping her
hands as though she bad made a wonderful discovery.
"Oh, dear, no) Never!" he stammered. "Positively not Yon really don't
think so, do yon?"
"I was just guessing," she replied
"Guess again," said he quickly.
"With Livia Vandergust," ventured

matter doe consideration, gazing meditatively into the fire, thus unconsciously
-bowing to Carter the fine profile cf her
face, which glowed in the red light of
Uie coals.
"Don't accrue me Of it" cried my
friend in a deprecating tone Utat was
moat uncomplimentary to my charming
cousin. "Go��Rs somebody nearer home."
And the foolish fellow kept her guessing tbe name of every girl in town bnt
the right one until the maid brought ia
Derby's card.
Was it a wonder that knowing these
fasts, I smiled when 1 asw Carter daah
sway in a cab after I bad imparted to
him Uie news? It was sufficient to send
him up tbe steps of tbe Walcott house
hi three bounds when bis cab drew np
there. Miss Walcott waa out "Atteas?"
be ventured to inquire of the maid.
"Yea." Hero arose a predicament He
knew of no lew than five that afternoon.
Bnt be bad beard tbat she waa to be at
the Trumptous* dinner that night, and

���warched every corner of Ibe crowded
drawing rooms aud even took a surrep
titious glance into the butler's pantry,
"Isn't that Miss-Walcott yonder?" he
laid to thc young _irl who was pouring
'ea, indicating a mass of black hair
'hat was conspicuous iu tbe crush.
"Whv, uo," she cried, gaaing at him
fa astonishment "She has light hair.
And, besides, she left hours ago. I
should think"���
The rest of tbe remark was lost on
my friend, who dashed from tbe room
���nd thc bouse and was off in bis cab
Mice more.
He searched in vain for her st tbe
Partridges', tbe Jouesce' and the Van
Blunders' and at leugth reached tbe
house of my aunt, who was on that aft
prnoon performiug the arduous physical
labor of introducing her daughter to eo-
ciety. Great, iutJeed, was my cousin V
utouishment when Bcuniugton Carter
was announced, for she knew thai be
abhorred teas. But greater Mill was bet
amazemeut wbeu he let i*..'l tbe hand
���be held out to him, turned suddenly,
craned his neck so as to see over tbe
knot of women about tlie door and
'lashed madly from the room.
Outer had seen ber at last, but it
was ouly a glimpse as the donr closed
upon her. He rushed up the stairs to tbe
dressing room aud bounded down again
to hia cab. ��
"Which way did Miss Wolcott's car'
rlage go?" be cried to tbe man wbo colled bis conveyance for bim.
"Up Fifth avenue, sir," replied that
astonished man.
"After it!" exclaimed Carter, jamp-
ing in and slamming tne door.
The bewildered Jehu swung bis vehi-
sle around the corner and dashed np lbs
avenue,-crowded with carriages. Eight
blocks, however, told on the beast, and
tbe driver found it expedient to draw up
at tbe curb and told,* colloquy with bis
"So you bsve lost it, eh?" cried Carter angrilv.
"Yes, sir," replied tbe cabby. Ha
tipped his bat most respectfully in tha
nope of mollifying tbe angry man.
Carter threw himself moodily back ia
Ihe seat and for a time was silent. It
waa already dark. Tbe pavement waa
filled with people hurrying borne after
the day'a work. He bad visited every
place where be could have hoped to find
ber, yet lost ber. Of a sudden be leaned
through the window aad to tbe cabby

Tbe man pierced tbe gloom with hia
syee snd st length pointed meaningly
with his whip down a side street to s
residence in front of which a score of
carriage* were gathered and an awning
stretched from curb to curb.
"At it!" cried tbe fare.
Carter quickly ascended tbe steps of
tbe strange house, boldly passed Uie
servants in the hall, left hia coat and
bat up stairs and returned to tbe drawing room.
"Carter, Carter, Carter?" muttered
tbe overdressed but kindly looking
woman who greeted him there, tapping
bim on the arm with ber fan and giving him a hearty shake of tbe hand.
'I'm delighted to see you, Mr. Carter."
"It waa awfully kind of yon to come,"

Why, it's Bennington Carter!"
My friend forced his way through a

She would uever be here. He would slip

Some St. Paul capitalists, who have

are tupposed to be on the inside'ring,
are negotiating for the townsite of
Hanca, which is at present in a tangled muddle of litigation, and have
also laid out another townsite on
White ('rouse mountain to be known
ba White ft rouse. It is the intention
to run a spur connecting these two
points, and thereby tapping the
White (.rouis* and St. Marys countries. This will be great* news to
tin* prospectors and claim owners in
these districts, as a number of properties only await the accesion ofa
railway to'Ikvoiiic immediate shipper?*. ___

Eight Men Sent Up to Begin De*
celopmsnt Wo rh.
Tlit' Braden Bros, ot Helena,
Mont., sold on Saturday tlie. Ajax
group, next t�� toe American Boy
and near tin- Nohle Five p'oup, to
K. Wallace, who is believed to have
made the purchase on Mia If ofthe
Ontario '���old Fields IVvelo*miettt
��� couipsnv. The consideration issaid
to Is* |2&,000.
The group consists of three claims,
the Ajax.-l'rown Point ami Random
Shot. Only the two tirst named
hsve been worked, and they have
now about 400 feet of tunnel iug.
They ore old properties, having been
located in 18.11, ami on* has been
shipped from the .Ajax and the
Crown Point from time t-�� time.
How much cannot Is* ascertained,
hut this year there bsve been three
shipments, the last one Mug at the
depot awaiting a ear at the time the
purchase was made. This would
make a total shipment for this year
of 40 tons. - The tire runs from 177
to-JO) ounces of silver and flO per
cent. lead.
Mr. Wallace sent eight men out
early in the week to u|ien up the
two claims mentioned, and hopes to
start regular shipment*; by this time
next month.
An  Acerage Csrload Glees a Net
Vslns of Ooer $88 Per Ton.
The Wonderful has only IH men
employed, much development work
is being done, and yet nearly tit)
tons of on? has heen' shipped fnnn
the mint? during tbe present year.
What this nets the owners can easily
lie reckoned up from the returns of
a recent shipment. The car contained a little over 20 tons, and the
returns showed 125 ounces of silver
and 72 per cent, of lead. This is the
average ofthe Wonderful ore ami it
varies but very slightly.
This would give a gross, value at
the mine of $124.23. The freight
and treatment cost ��22 per ton; the
toss in silver was 13.78 per ton; loss
in lead, $4.85 per ton. Tlie duty
was |10.8i; per ton; the custom's
charges 12_ cents per ton: and the
net returns 182.151 per ton. For this
particular shipment the figures on
the smelter's cheek were #1701.12.
A Surrey  Being Hade  to  Obtain
Greater Water Pressure.
B. 0. Klblet is making the surveys
for a plan that will not only increase
the water supply, but will give mt
great a pressure that iu ease of Are
the buildings on the hills, as well as
the three-story buildings down town
(and the ten-fttory buildings when
they are built) cau be promptly del-
nged. It is prc*|*ost*d to bring'in an
additional supply of water, to run a
new main supply pipe through Second avenue, near the railroad
tracks, and to make connections
with the power plant of the electric
light station.

Our Methodiet Minister Will Blush
When He Reada This.
The Rev. A .VI. Sanford was. before he came to Sandon. pastor o!
the Brunswick street Methodist
church of Truro, N. 8_, and iu an
ungarded moment he wrote a frank
letter of his -tosition liere to om* of
his former congn'gation. Tlie letter
was all right as a private epistle,
but there is such a craving fur news
of the famous Sl����can district at the
far eastern end of the dominion that
the editor of the Truro News gut
hold of it antl published it, even to
the concluding paragraph. It is this
last paragraph which mantles with
modest blushes the well rounded
cheeks of our voting divine, and
whicli will lead all the young ladies
of Sandon who have not already
well grounded suspicions to exclaim: "Which oneof a* will It lie?"
The letter runs as follows:
"I am living a very busy snd exciting life snd have found s most
congenial Held. This is practically
a new field, no real solid work having ever been done here, but I hope
soon to see things hustling in g��*��d
shape. I am pitching in for ail I am
worth: in fact, I have to do so, far if
a man can't hustle* he'd better get
out at once. This is no country for
a slow man. for iu every line of "busi*
ness ''hustle'' is the word.
"Already 2000 'jjrs-ofile are hen-,
and there Is only one other minister
hen* besides myself, though others
may soon arrive* and before another
year has passed this population will
probably have doubled.
"I am not suffering from luxury,
and you would smile if you couid
see me iu my shanty thia evening
sitting on a trunk and writing you
this letter. There an- five of us liv.
ing here ami there is only nm* chair
and oue ls*d. A block of wood about
a foot across serve* both for a seat
and for a wash -stand, and we have
a trestle, something like a carpenter's horse with a five-inch plank
about a yard long nailed to two leg*
each end. We do our own eiMiking
and I have **>ecial charge of the
dishwashing department. | telly on
it is a gay life, but even this life
coat* one between t�� and * I a week.
To board here would et**t. at the
least, **<7 a week, and gi**d Itoartl
would cost from 110 to #20. In
altottt two months I expect to be 1st
ler situated, as- my people will by
thai time, ha vi- completed a small
but comfortable home for me.
When this is completed I bone to gel
married ami settled down."
