Star Haa Floe Poet ia the
Lrotoer Workings.
Five feet of fine concentrating ore
has come into the No. 5 tunnel at
the Slocan Star.   The lower tramway to this tunnel ia finished and the
first car of ore was taken down to
the mill on  Thursday.   The vein
was encountered about three weeks
ago, but the ore body was found in
drifting on  the vein, about 10 feet
from the tunnel.   Fifty feet further
it is expected to reach the great body
. of clean ore which has been worked
lin No. 4tunnel.
This adds aone more to the many
epoch-making periods which the Slocan Star  has given to the Sandon
camp.   The depth of this tunnel is
about 750 feet and proves, without
doubt, that the mines of Slocan have
depth.   Three years ago, when ore
was struck  in No. 4 tunnel,  the
event was celebrated as a great thing
for Sandon.   Last spring  the management said that when ore was
found in the No. 5 tunnel they were
then driving, they would start another tunnel near the concentrator
to get a depth of 1000 feet.

**n******** THK PAYSTREAK, 8AND0N. B.C., OCTOBER % l��7.
He Will Pool  the Howlers
Whoa He Goto Back.
The baseball league championship
is not the only honor Boston has ac
quired this season. It is now also
receiving the undivided attention
and favors of one of the principal
actors in the comedy that was enacted with such startling success a
few weeks ago right here in Sandon.
If this isn't glory enough for the
city of culture and beans to have
thrust upon her in one year, she can
probably get the other principal by
offering's small inducement.
Boston may not, at the present,
realise the full significance of having1 such a party as A. D. Williams
in its midst, but if be is allowed to
stay there long enough itismore
than likely that they will. It's a
ten-to-one shot that he will make an
impression on the packet hooks of
some of that burg's citisens that will
cause a break in the proverbial icy
glare of their countenances.
Williams writes that he is making
a successful trip. That was unkind
of bim. There is nobody in Sandon
but knows that. The next thin*;
the people here may expect to see is
Boston papers referring to bim as a
financial Napoleon or the Slocan Silver King.
But for downright gall and superb nerve thc following letter, received by C. K. Hammond from
Williams, not onlv takes tbe cake,
but also the whole bakery, bread
pans and all. Its innocence is immaculate. It is almost appalling* in
its conceit. It is written as if*from
one partner, who had gone east on
definite business Intentions, to another, who had been daily expecting
to receive just some such epistle. As
If the jumping out of a town between
two suns for the purpose of defrauding: creditors waa of common occurrence and highly gratifying to all
those concerned.
Here it is:
Boston, Sept. 22,1897.
C. K. Hammond, Esq., Sandon.
Dear Sir: Do nothing; with the
Canadian stock until I return. I
can place it all here, and will write
you ndl particulars in a few days.
Note that fell due hold over until
I return.
Am making a successful trip. I
will fool the howlers when I get
back.   Yours truly,
A. J>. Williams.
It is to be presumed that "the
howlers" would liked to be fooled.
And what joy the holder of that note
must experience since he has been
assured that he can hold onto it.
Mr. Williams Is nothing if not facetious.    	
A Note Denoer Mqstenj.
Tuesday night, at tbe late hour of
about 2 o clock, the guests of the
Newmarket hotel, in New Denver,
were startled by tbe report of a pistol shot sounding uncomfortably
near. Mr. Siege, the proprietor of
the hotel and half the gueats were
soon gathered in tbe hallway, clad
in their nightly attire, in quest of
the wounded man, if he could be
found. But the only evidence In
sight was a large bullet hole at the
tot> of the hallway.
The night clerk dragged himself
np tbe stairs after all the excitement had died away and inquired,
"who was kilted.'' As yet all is a
mystery concerning the name of the
person who fired the shot, or tbe
cause which actuated him toso rudely wake up the guests ofthe Newmarket.   	
C. P. R. Prom Robaoo to Roeelaad.
Information has been received
that the C. P. R. has decided to
build their line from Rohaon to Rosa-
land at once, and expect to have It
in operation by the 1st of January.
They will use Heinee's road from
opposite Rohaon to Sullivan creek,
and from there build an independent road to Roasiand, thereby getting a one per cent, grade.
Heinle's road from Trail to Rob-
son is completed, thc last spike being driven this week.

Constable Mountain has received
a letter from Sheriff Smith, who
took Tailor from Sandon to be tried
for murder In Arkansas some time

willing to rive tbe prisoner tho benefit Ofthe doubt, and not wishing to
do bhn an injury. He turned bim
loose with his best whthes."

13ROWKINO     ACCinjRHT    ON    HOOT*.
On Sunday afternoon at about 1:30
John Snellneth,  Wm.   Johnston and
Charles Strom rented a Ixmt from Cockle
Bros, boat houae in Kaslo to go ior a row
on the lake.   After cruising around the
bay for an  hour or two, visiting the
mineral spring, saw mill, sampler, etc.,
they storied to return to the boat house,
but changed their mind* and proceeded
out into the lake, intending, apparently,
to cross to the other side.   A violent*!
wind was blowing at the time and when
about half way across two were noticed
arise in the boat to pass, one to relieve
the other at the oars, when the boat
suddenly capaixed.    Chas. Strom aud
John Snellneth sank almost immediately, but Wm. Johnston, who had his coat
off at the time, was seen struggling in
the water for sometime and holding onto
th* boat.   A number of parties statted
immediately to their aid,  but before
they got there the man struggling in tbe
icy water was seised with cramp*, threw
up his hands and sank.   The rescuers
proceeded to tbe scene of the catastrophe
and picked up all three men's hat*, the
boat and Wm. Johnston'* coat.   After
sinking the unfortunate men never arose
to the surface and no trace of them wa*
found other than those picked up by
the rescue parties, although dragging for
tlte bodies waa carried on all day Mon-
John Snellneth and Wm. Johnston
were   about   28    and    30   vears   of
age lespectively, both natives of Sweden
but for a long time residents of thb
country.   Chas. Strom  was also about
tlie same age aa the others.   Wm. Johnstone was a carpenter by trade and for
some time past haa been engaged on the
Pilot Bav concentrator in the emplov of
Thos.   Mitchell.    John Snellneth  and
Chaa. Strom were both miners and have
been  working at Uie Noble Five for
some month* past.   All were steady,
intelligent men,  held  in  the highest
esteem by their friends and comrades,
and no doubt the news of their death
will come to many as a great shock.   It
was their intention to attend the Spokane Fruit Fair, and it is Mud that at
tlie time of the sad fatality that among
the party they had over $1,700 on tlieir
clothes.   Efforts are being made bv the
authorities to communicate with'tlieir
relations in tbe old country.  Tbe bodies
of Johnston and Snellneth were found
on Tuesday in 30 fathoms of water.
A very rich strike of high grade ore
was made last week on Uie Surprise
mine. In following the vein on Uie north
drift from Uie Xo. 1 tunnel tbe miners
broke into a 12 inch chute of clean ore,
which has been followed along the vein
for 25 feet and shows up better with each
foot of development. The ore is of the
same nature as that found iu other place*
on theprc-wrty, a fine grained galena
running from 200 to 250 ots. silver and
00 per cent. lead. At present only four
men, under foreman Gillie, are engaged
on the property, but it is the intention
to add materially to this force very
shortly. The construction of a new ore
house is also planned for ttefore snowfall, and *e ore taken out will lie sacked
ready i .>.��� shipment as the work progresses. There i* now at the mine a
car load of ore sacked, but none will be

wagon road, a distance of two miles. Tlte

at w tich work is being done in Uie Slocan, over 8,000 feet above sea-level.
W. W. Warner, who opened up the
Ajax, is now at work developing the
Ajax Fraction for Braden Bros. The
ledge which is 30 feet wide shows up all
across the claim, and has been stripped
for about 100 feet. On the surface the
ore showing Is not over two inches wide
but is continuous wherever Uie ledge has
been stripped, and from a shaft which
haa been sunk on the vein for 16 feet
seven tons of high grade ore have been
taken. A 30-foot cross-cut is now being
run to tap the ledge lower down. On
Uie surface Uie ore is a coarse cube
galena, but at the bottom of the shaft
eiaht inches of a beautiful fine-grained
galena assaying 210 ots. and 00 per cent,
is shown.
It is said that one of the prominent
mines in the Slocan will enter auit
against a United State* smelter to recover the amount of duty charged them
on lead. The mine owners claim that
Uie smelter did not pay Uie duty a* Uie
ore was smelted under bond and shipped
out of Uie country. The refusal of the
smelter people to* show a receipt from
the government for duty paid on the
lead ts Uie cause of Uie suit being entered.

Medicine which tastes bad can be

match is applied to the bricks.
Silver Coinage la India.
At present India alone is buying silver.
The native population there have appar-
parently been tempted by the steady
decline to buy silver in greater quantities because they have always practised
a species of local coinage which the government tacitly winks at. Under Uie
eld system so much weight of silver was
worth so many rupees all Uie Ume, and
so firmly is this tradition founded tbat

If the world wishes to avert the
greatest financial crash in the history
ofthe human race silver most be re-
monetised before the end of next
year. The question has arrived at
tbat stage which will permit ol nothing else if universal rain and revolution are to be avoided. If tbe matter
is allowed to come to the bitter epd
many a rich gridbug will wring his
hands in angnish and call upon his
God to save him from the awful wreck
that most come from tbe continued
debasement of a metal that was
money when gold was not recognised
as such.
The Sslt Lake Tribune has the following to say on the subject:
"Our belief is that the money powers of tbe world will very soon be
obliged to remonetize silver at some
ratio. It will be that or a crash
whieb will convulse the business
world. The reason why is tbat as
men lose tilth in the ultimate restoration of silver tbe white metal will continue to decline until there will come
a grand scramble to unload the old
stock of silver, and prices generally
of all products will follow tbe gold
basis, and then there will be chaos
and general repudiation. The rich
men ol this world cannot stand an upheaval of tbat kind. The most conservative statisticians estimate that
half tbe yearly product of gold Is a V
sorbed in the arts. Some insist that
nearly all is nsed up that way. But
if it were not so, the whole amount
distributed among the nations would
not begin to keep up with the world's
trade; it would not supply basis
enough for the world's prices, and
hence production, where supply and
demand are normal, pays nothing to
the producer. Tbe question with the
financiers will soon be whether to re-
monetise silver or demonetize gold
and trust to paper issued to an amount
equal to a given sum per capita ofthe
people, for money. Some of the gold
journals of the east are already alarmed lest silver go to nothing and there
shall cume a scramble to unload the
stocks of silver on hand. It has lost
more than half its value already, but
with -it tbe world's property has
sunken SO per cent., and, notwithstanding sll tne eastern exultation,
the shrewd men there sre filled with
Ir Thk Matter ot oontroling the
action of irroi-porated companies It
must be admitted that, in guarding
the interests of the public, the legislation of Great Britian is superior in
sll respects to that of the United
States. There is no room to question
the fact that the root of the gigantic
labor troubles In the United States
have their root in the unbridled
licence of gigantic corporations.
In the matter of railroads, although
the people of Great Britian do not
own them, and do not aid their construction, either by grants of money
or land nor even so far as guarantee
ing interest on their bonds: yet the
government controls them by placing
a limit to their freight and passenger
rates and dividends, and on the expiration of twenty-one years, the
limit of their oorporate existence,
tbe government has tbe power to
take over the roads on terms favorable to tlie public
''Stock watering" under the British
system of corporation control, could

government inspection by lynx-eyed
officials who sre not to be bought,
and the certainty of swift and sure
punishment for violating law. compels
British oorpontions to keep pretty
near the line of morel rectitude. How

the stock increased to 93^ti39,(XX).
or nearlv seven to one. To cover
up such fraudulent gains company
resort to tbe stock-watering-trick.
The 8treet Railway Journal for so
far back as July 1892 said: "Str ck
watering has '���come to stay,*' and is
oo the Increase; '-never before in our
history has so much of it been done
as in tne lest few years" Legisla
tlve investigation has shown that in
the capitalization of tbe New fork
elevated there are about five parts of
water to one of solid. The New York
real estate commission well know
thst tbe stock of the street railway
companies represent millions of
watered values, upon which tbe people of this city have to pay, snd will
be compelled to pay hereafter,
millions annually."
There is a lesson for British Colombia in this. One of our greatest needs
as * mining community is legislation

of Great Britain rather than that of
the United States, which we have

In the historic bottm days In Winnipeg
the boometara used no smaller coins
than -ft-cent pieces* disdaining all
smaller tokens as "chicken-feed." Later
tin many of them were glad to scrape
together what pennies they could.
Such differences are there between
different parts of this wide Dominion
that while with most ofne in eastern
Canada gold coins are nuilk***, la British Columbia it la copper coins that are
scarce. In fact "coppers,*' that Is to
sav, one-cent coins, are so twerea In
Vancouver, that the CPU. haa seat a
supply to the t^elerraph office there* In
order that exact change may be made
The Vancouver paper*, rtimutetttitur on
this novelty, say that it la hardly likidv

has lately been made that half cent

Constable Alexander G. Hamilton, of
Silverton, late of Sandon, is in a peck of
trouble; the citisens of Silverton are on
the verge of nervous prostration from
tbe exciting experience they have just
undergone, and the calm, complacent
and awfully docile editor of the Silverton
Silvcrtonian is on a fair road to fame
and fortune, having been arrested for
criminally libeling an officer of the law,
Mr. Alexander G. Hamilton.
Tlie commencement of the trouble that
all this is the outcome dates with Hamilton's arrival at Silverton from Sandon.
For one reason and another the officer
and the citisens could not harmonize
their differences. It is alleged that
Hamilton had his favorites, and while
stopping certain unlawful games in
some hotels, would allow others to conduct them; in short, it is alleged that
tlie officer has watched closely the interests of those holding out the big mit.
The first outbreak of the trouble
occurred when, without any authority,
some parties from parts unknown, reopened the Hotel Silverton and began
ihsptmingof whatever liquors could be
found on the premises without a license.
On Tuesday evening of last week a dance 	
was announced to be held in the dining(to be delivered into court.
When Cameron was. released he at
once swore out a complaint against
Hamilton charging him with misconduct
in the discbarge ofnis duties ss an officer.
The facta were telegraphed to Nelson
and on Tuesday Gold Commissioner
0. G. Dennis, accompanied by Clerk
Keene of Kaslo, came to New Denver to
hear the testimony in the case. The
case was called at 8 o'clock the same
The court room was crowded when the
case was called. R. B. Kerr appeared
for the prosecution and Officer Hamilton
appeared for himself. Jss. Cameron
was first called. He testified to having
been arrested Sunday by Hamilton:
wss taken to the. lock-up and shackeled
by one leg to the floor, Hamilton remarking that sa he (Cameron) had used
him without gloves he (Hamilton) would
use him the same. On the way. to the
lock-up they met Justice of the Peace
Hunter to whom Cameron appealed to
be allowed to give bail. Mr. Hunter
told Hamilton to release Cameron without bail, as there waa do dancer of him
skipping out. Hamilton said that was
optional with him, and marched him off
to the lock-up. Arriving there he waa
shackled as before stated. He found
Ashton already there, also shackeled.
The matter of bail came up, and Hamilton said he did not do that work for
nothing. He was informed that he waa
not expected to. Thereupon Hamilton
proceeded to make out the bail bond,
accepting Jas.. Bowes and John Popham
as sureties in the sum of $500, and when
this was done he turned Cameron loose.
Ashton also asked to be liberated on *
bail, bnt Hamilton replied, **. You're the
biggest liar of the two and I'll hold you."
Later he relaxed and accepted bonds in
tbe same amount, with the'understanding that be was to receive |2for so doing
the said amount to be paid the following
morning at 9 o'clock when Ashton was
room of the hotel and preparations on
a grand scale were going forward when
Constable Hamilton, armed with a complaint sworn out by Al Ashton, appeared
and the dancing stopped. Ashton accompanied Hamilton and on arrival at
the hotel stepped into the room with
him. Hamilton said, " Boys, I place
you under arrest," and turning to Ashton, added, "and here's the man responsible for it." With this he left the hotel
closing the door af.er him and leaving
Ashton behind to receive the abuse of
the sports.   No _rresta were made and
The testimony of Ashton waa about
the same as that of Cameron, there
being no material variance on any important point.
Shortly after 9 o'clock the court adjourned till 11 a. m. Wednesday, when
as per order of the court, Hamilton produced the warrants on which he arrested Cameron and Ashton.
When the case waa called Wednesday
morning the evidence produced was of
little moment. The decision of the
court was that the evidence waa in
the whiskey sellers were allowed to leave j sufficient to hold Hamilton to answer

Silverton openly the following morning
Upon Ashton remonstrating with
Hamilton about this he was told that he
had 24 hours in which to leave Silverton.
When this became known the citizens
generally took a hand and things were
made warm for Hamilton. The local
paper took Uie matter up and roasted
the officer to a scientific turn. On Sunday Hamilton, armed with a warrant
sworn out before W. Hunter, J. P., arrested Cameron and Ashton on a charge
of criminal libel and marched them off
to the jail. They were shackeled to the
floor until released on bonds given in
the jail by Hamilton himself.
The case against Cameron and Ashton
was called for preliminary hearing; on
.Monday but was postponed one week.

After the  case   was   dismissed the
following colloquy took place between
Judge Dennis and Officer Hamilton:
"Sir, you will be suspended awaiting
action at headquarters."
"I don't want to be suspended."
"Then you are discharged.**
"1 would rather resign than be discharged."
"Very well,you may resign; I accept
your resignation.**���The Ledge.

Valuable discoveries have been made
and valuable inventions suggested by
the veriest accident
The swaying to and fro of a chandelier
in a cathedral suggested to Galileo the
application of the pendulum.
Mesaotinto owed its invention to the
iru-pte accident of the gun-barrel of a
sentry becoming rusted with dew.
An alchemist while seeking to discover
a mixture of earths that would make the
most durable cracibiee, one day found
that he had made porcelain.
The power of lenses* as applied to the
descope, wss disco
maker's   apprentice,
telescope, was discovered by a watch
makers   apprentice.    While  holding
spectacles elaasee between his thumb
and finger, he was startled by tbe suddenly enlarged appearance of a neighboring church spire.
The -meets of whitening sugar was
discovered in a curious way. A hen that
had gone through a clay puddle went
with ber muddy feet into s sugar house.
It wm noticed that wherever her tracks
were the sngsr was whitened. Experiments were instituted, and the result
wss that wet clay came tube used in
refining sugar.
The composition of which printing-
rollers are made was discovered by a
Salopian printer. Not being ahle to find
the pelt-ball bs inked the type with a
piece of soft glue, which had fallen out
of a glue-pot. It was such an excellent
substitute that, after mixing molasses
with the glue to give the meat proper
consistency, tbe oM pelt-ball was entirely discorded.
Tbe art of etching upon glass was
discovered by a Nuremburg gUas-cutter.
Bv accident a few drops of aquafortis
fell upon his spectacles. He noticed that
the glass became corroded and sof tenet!
where acid had touched it. That was
hint enough. He drew figures upon the
class with varnish, applied the oorroding
fluid, then cut away the glass around the
drawing. When the varnish was removed the figures appeared raised upon a
dark ground. .
The shop of a dttblin tobscconist, by
tlie name of Land-Hoot, waa destroyed
by fire. While he waa casing dolefully
into the smouldering raws he notioad
that his poorer neighbors were gathering
the snuff from the canisters. Be tested
the snuff himself, and discovered that
the-fire bad largely improved its pong-
and aroma. It waa a bint worth
Iting by. He sscorad another shop.
It a lot of ovens, subjected the snuff
to a heating process, gave the. brand a
peculiar name, and tn a few yearn became rich through an accident which at
first thought had completely mined him.
The art of lithographing was perfected
through suggestions made by accident.
A poor }jiu.sieun was curious to know
whether music could not be etched upon stone as well as upon
oopper. After he had prepared his
motherasked him to make memoran-
dum of such clothes as she proposed to
send away to be washed. Not having
pen. ink and paper convenient, be wrote
the list on the stone with etching preparation, intending to make (a copy of it at
leisure. A few days later when ahout to
clean the stone, he wondered what effect
aqua fortis would have upon it He applied the accid, and in a few minutes
saw the writing -standing out in relief.
The next step necessary was simply to
in*c*the stone snd take elf an impveadon.
A Brighton stationer took a fancy for
dressing his show-window with plies of
writing paper, rising gradually from the
largest to the smallest sise in use, and to
finish his pyramid off nicely he cuts
cards to bring them to a point Taking
these cards for diminutive note paper,
lady customers were continually wanting some of "that lovely little paper,"
and tbe stationer found it advantageous
to cut paper to the desired pattern. As
there was no space for addressing the
notelets after they were folded be, after
much thought, invented the envelope,
which he cut by the aid of metal plates
for that purpose. The sale increased so
rapidly that he was unable to produce enough, so he commissioned a
dozen bouses to make them for him, and
thus set going an important branch of
the manufacturing trade.
Ontario today is a groat dairy province. Her cheese is a favorite article
on the English market because It is
Kod and Because it is honest. Her
tter, for tbe same reason, is growing
in public esteem, and. with cxdotforagt-
traasportation, is taking a foreusoet
place. Of cheese Canada exports Its,-
000,000 worth and butter a growing
Quantity. Cattle are an important item
Here we export to the tone of seven or
eight millions of dollars annually, A
later agricultural development is the
production of hams and bacon, in which
we are (bound to lead. The fruits of
Ontario are of excellent quality. Iron
of good quality is found In Nov* Scotia,
In Quebec, in Ontario, and In the West.
There are but two great nickel mines
in the world and we have one of them
at Sudbury, In On-tarfo. All In minerals of value, silver, lead, copper and
asbestos, arc to be found In the country, but more especially gold, which is
produced as far east as Nora Scotia, in
Central Ontario, in the Rat Portage
dlatrlet, all over British Colombia, on
the Saskatchewan, and. aa we have
lately learned, on the Yukon. Our gold
discoveries challenge the attention of
world. Meanwhile, quietlv and unostentatiously, we are pumping np petroleum from 10,000 wells in t_ambton and
Bothwell, salt on the borders of Lake
Huron, and natural gas in Essex and
Welland. We have within Canada
valuable forests, extensive fisheries,
fertile lands, snd enormous mineral deposits, In fact everything which contributes to tbe material wealth of the
people Of the country, the resources
of which have by our large expenditures lieen brought within reach of industry, we are all proud. It Is a
contribution to the greatness of our
Empire. What It needs Is more men
to take advantage of Its wealth, and
these will surely corneas its capabilities

Whispering a few hasty directions
into the ear of a clown who waa filling
in Utwt, u the "turns" to stop tbe next
artists from appearing and to closs the
stable entrances, Paolo made a bow
and, holding up hia hand for silence,
"Ladies and gentlemen, I cannot
thank you sufficiently in words for tbe
kindness with which yon have received
my efforts tonight, so as deeds speak
louder tban words I shall bring before
you for tbe first time in public my famous trained lion. He and I will give
an eihibition of wrestling. An, yon

the mora timid to move uneasily iu
their seats
With one msgnifiosat bound the no
Me bea>t was throes') the rrrtains uu
tn the middle of ths ring There be lay
crouching in the odorous tan, as thoneh
scarce realising bis unwonted freedom
end struck by the strangeness of hia
surroundings, bis bluodsbot eysa rolling
uneasily and bis quick, gasping breath
disturbing ths dust beneath his dilated
ooetiils. &
Paolo had braced his limbs to give
himself a strong position in expectation
of Scipio's onrush, his weapon concealed in the hollow of his band, and as be
stood in all the grace and strength of
hia magnificent manhood, every symptom of fear vanished, he felt within
himself tbat he almost welcomed tbe
moment tbat would bring to him victory or death.
Little time for thought, however, had
Paolo. With one fell spriug the mighty
beast waa at him, his open jaws dripping froth, his bloodshot eyes biasing
with fury.
But not this time did be grasp his intended prey, for quick as tbonght tbe
practiced eye of tbe acrobat detected
the movement, and bending forward,
head and knees almost touching the
fToond, he made a rapid shift in tbe op-
oo��ite direction and avoided by almost a
Hairbreadth being crushed breathless
beneath tbe lion's bulk.
Quick as lightning's flash the lion
turned once more, crouching low iu the
dust, his eye warily seeking some weak
spot in tbe armor of this strange antagonist, whose lithe limbs and sinuous
movements puzsled bim, and who showed less tfi^us of fear facing him here in
open tight than tbe crowds of frail humanity who bad mocked snd jeered at
him so often from the sate side of bis
prison burs, but wbo shrank back affrighted when in his wrath he gave his
awful battle roar.
This time, with catlike tread, be
���lowly advanced upon bis adversary,
striving, as though conscious of bis
power aud strength, to drive him back
and pen him helplessly aud without
chance of escape against tbe side of the
i iug, and then to  seise him at his
Paolo was also thinking. When would
the soldiers come? Could he survive to
carry on tbe unequal struggle till they
arrived? But while thinking not a muscle relaxed.
Beeiug the lion's tactics, he gradually
managed to skirmish toward tbe ring,
though i>y so doing ho passed within a
few feet of bis nose,
"Come on, Scipio," he said aloud,
with a gay travudo he little felt, ''this
is not how lions fight, ** And be mads a
slight feint, ss though playfully to touch
bis adversary on the head.
With a deep, hollow roar of anger
Scipio reared aloft ou his bind legs, and,
throwing all prudeuce to the winds and
realising that the momentous struggle
bad come at last. Paolo rushed madly
. ..j... .��������� ��,u\ b��ast closing in a ter
rible death grapple, tbe lion continuing
erect, as though wishful to wrestle on
equal terms with the brave biped.
In the swift onrush Paolo dropped his
dagger, and now, weapon leas bat fren-
sied with rage and despair, he exerted
every atom of his marvelous strength
and with one giant upheaval overthrew
tbe wild beast
But Scipio's mighty claws were busy,
snd tbe blood lust was on bim too.
Crimson streaks through Paolo's tunio
made it apparent to ths fascinated
beholden tbat this little wrestling bout
was not all that it seemed, and many a
timid heart, sickened by tbe sight of
blood, edged furtively toward ths nearest outlet
Bnt what sound ia this that breaks
the spell and causes ths low whispers
of inquiry to swell into a babel of
tongues? In anot her moment the semi-
solitude of the arena is broken by the
appearance of a body of soldiers from
the neighboring barracks, all converging rapidly on one point where lay ths
doughty combatants.
The young officer tn command, hastily disengaging a revolver from his
belt, fires one, two, three shots into the
prostrate brute's ear, and with one
mighty groan tbe spirit of tbe erring
Scipio returns to bannt the solitudes of
the Africau deserts.
Tender hands lift Paolo, unconscious,
bleeding and nigh to death. He is borne
from tbe arena as the audience slowly
files ont of tbe building nnder the masterful direction of some of the soldiers
told off for tbe purpose���silent, awe
stricken, sobbing, praying, walking aa
in a trance.
In a peaceful little God's acre juat

A college room is a delightful place.
Its occupant for the time being is its
master.   He can do as he will in it���
lock hia door and be not at home, admit all comers, sit alone and read or
study, or ait with bis congenial friend
and talk out whstever be may have tbe
good fortune to have in his mind.   One
Harvard graduate certainly, who found
many pleasures of very varied sorts in
college, remembers very few with such
a sense of solid comfort duly taken aa
certain talks had in college rooms with
good men, though young, about letters
and life aud people, the immediate environment and the greater world on the
brink of which all college men stand.
Music has charms, superlativa charms,
in college too.
In this aame graduate's memory there
are tew musical associations more eon-
soling tlnu the memory of what he
heard, half asleep in a chair before a
fire, while a good musician who was
his classmate tat at his piano in the
corner. Some of tbe calmest aad most
peaceful memories of college ars ths
best. Tbe mora boisterous pleasures we
smile to recall aud wonder as ws remember them at the vigor and the folly
of youth. Bnt about those quieter
streaks of happiness then was no folly
and tbey involved no remorse.���-Edward

A little maiden had a French nurse of
whom she waa very food and who sup-
Elied her with most of her amusement.
>ne day tha nurse departed, and her
small charge didn't know what to do
with herself. She wandered about the
house, upstairs and down, into the garden and back again, and finally hung
about her nMtther, who was busy just
then with the baby. Receiving no attention she turned away saying dejectedly : "Nobody loves me. I guess I'll go

ought to marry, to perpetuate this glorious race; if you love your country, to
raise up soldiers to defend it; in fine, if
yoo wish well of earth or heaven, you
ought to marry, to give good citisens to
the one, and glorious angels to the
other." If be doesn't sing a different

A gentleman waa travelling In a
smolang-compartmrmt tbe other day,
and, at a certain station," a German entered the carriage and took his seat
opposite to him. Wlwn the train had
started the German noticing die other
smoking a Trail Blase Cigar inquired if
he could oblige him with one.
Tlie (Canadian astonished at tlie request reluctantly pulled o i his case,
and saw, with disgust, the other select
the beat ctgar he could find, and produce
a match from his pocket and light it.
After taking a tew puffs, with evident
enjoyment, tlie Gentian, learning at his
companion through his spectacles, said
"I vould not hall droubled you, but 1
had a match in mein boggit, and 1 did
not know what to do mit it?'
The Canadian Gaaette tells an amusing store of one who was too quick at
drawing an iuference. It happened that
a Glasgow professor who was visiting
Canada with the British association in
1884 waa desirous of seeing aomething of
northwestern life, and for this purpose
repaired to an Alberta ranch.
"1 fixed him up as well ss I could,"
the rancher says, "but he complained
that he did 'not like sleeping with bis
clothes on. So after the fimt night 1
stretched a cowskin across the shack and
told him he might undress if he liked.
He took oil most of his garments and put
on a long white nightdress. In the
morning my foreman came in while the
gentleman waa still sleeping, Obeerv-
ing the white nightdress, he said in a
" 'Rather sudden, eh?'
" 'What?* I asked.
" 'The death of the old man.'
'"He's not dead; he's asleep/ 1 explained.
" 'Then what's he wearia' them b'Hed
clothes for?' was the reply. 'Never saw
a chap laid out in b'iled clothes atbre
'cept he were dead."
A young gentleman whose gallantry
was largely in excess of his pecuniary
means, sought to remedy this delect and
save the money required fbr the pur-
chase of expensive flowers, by arranging
with a' gardener to let him have a boquet
from dme to time in return for hia cast
off clothes It thus happened one day
that he received a hunch of the most
beandfnl rosea, which he at once sent off
to his lady-love. In sure aatkination of
�� fsieadly wetconie bs ailed at the
hotue the same evening, and was not a
little surprised at the frosty reception be
met with.
"You tent me a note today," the young
lady remarked after a pause, fn tbe most
frigid tones.
"1���a note?" he enquired in blank
"Certainly along with a nosegay."
"To be sure, I sent you a nosegay,"
"And there waa this note inwde���tio
you still mean to deny it?"
With these words she handed the
dumbfounded swain a scrap of paper on
which the following words were written:
"Don't forget the old trousers you promised me the other day."

The ailver market Is down and the
advocates of the single gold standard
are jubilant, riding their high horse
and jumping onto silver with both feet.
Pressed to the wall by the invincible
arguments of the binictallists tbey
parade the present rise in the price of
wheat as a defeat of the arguments of
j the biuietellists and keep the press filled
with glowing and exaggerated accounts

world, giv.ng fabulous estimates of
their promised production, and alt to
bolster up tbe Idea that there is gold
enough to.uphold and maintain the

wool pulled over our eyes and blind us
with the glimmer of gold then the great
money lending syndicates of Europe
can still maintain their monopoly and
retain their power to keep the people of

assert our power? The light is break

England unquestionably recognises
that silver has not been displaced as
redemption money, and tiiat such a
pcssibility is too remote to be considered. Whether the proposition
of the bank matures or not, the offer
to do so shows tbat the English mind
analyses the trend of event* and
foresees the reinstatement of silver
as basic money of the world. Not
onlv is a great deal ef foresight
manifested ear the management of
that financial institution, in making
a suggestion preliminary to the recognition of silver as a safe enough
metal for tbe redemption of tbe obligations of tbe largest bank In the
world, but characteristic British selfishness threads the idea from its inception.

future as a prodnaer ef silver ores,
and it can be said to his credit that
he never throttles tbe indastrial life

any portion ef his wide domains.
Unlike the" short-sighted, silly, brutal policy of tbe American reMbife,
Great Britain fostera the development of ita resources, and will find
bimetallic inspiration In the mineral
fields of the north. When it becomes tbe chief producer of the
white metal, allver will again take
its place beside the now triumphant
gold, and the sinjrie-a-timdard advor
cates of America will again see where
they have been outgeneraled bv the
mother country. Bimetallism is
coariwg, but the cream of the. prosperity it will bring to Che world will

One night last week a member of
Sandon's demi-monde, after a day's
carousal, told her Mends that ������there
wouldn't be any more left of her
than a rabbit bv morning.'* This
frightened them and a doctor waa
called. Before the arrival of the
phvuician the whole tenderloin district had come upon the soene. The
distress was intense. But the atom*
Sch pomp was set to work and soon
the danger waa over. Sonteaald

said she had only drank three quarts
