streak pr  ting palace  while  this
type ts bet g thrown together.
An effort-Is  being  made  to get a

visited Kootenay.
The Sandon Miners' Union wUI
hold another meeting this evening.
The membership is now in the neighborhood of 150 and it is expected
thst in three months it will reach
603. A movement is on foot to start
s hospital in connection with the
Union. The proposition will be
fully discussed this evening.
SLOCAN MINES.
The Reco is increasing its force.
Electric light is being used at the
Whitewater mine.
A change of management Is reported at the Queen Bess,
R. E. L. Brown announces that the
Whitewater Deep will resume.
It is daily expected to strike the
ledge in the long tunnel on the R. E.
Lee.
The Wild Goose in Idaho Basin b
shipping. Fifteen tons fere sejit
down this week.
Work has been suspended on the
Treasure Vault. The mine has been
shut down until the danger ot elides
is over.
The Idaho is doing some heavy
shipping. During the last week in
January 25X1 tons were loaded at the
concentrator.
Dick Shey is reported to have sold
out of the Rambler to Alf. Coolridge
and W. F. McLean. The price of
the stock is not stated.
The recent strike at the Noble
Five continues to improve and it is
confidently expected by the management that a large body of ore will
opened up.
The Ivanhoe is shipping two cars
this week, the first consignment
sent down in two years. There is
enough ore on the dump at the Ivan
hoe to pay a very large dividend
and every working in the mine
shows high grade galena.
The pumps hsve been lifted and
the present workings abandoned on
the Antoins. The new owners, the
Alexander syndicate, will run a long
tunnel to open up the ledge at s
much greater depth. It is not expected that work will be started before spring.
It is expected that the city council
will give the Ruth Mines the exemption asked for snd that construction
will be commenced at once. Together with the Ivanhoe tram, which
will be constructed during the coming summer, this will make a busy
building season in Sandon.
R. H. Trueman, photographer, will
be In Sandon on Tuesday, Feb. 7th,
to remain three weeks. Studio opposite C. P. R. depot.
THE QUEEN BESS ROAD.
Another Effort to Secure Gooern-
ment Co-operation.
A petition is again being circulated and generally signed, asking for
a grant from tbe Provincial treasury
to assist In building the Queen Bess
wagon road.
It is now nearly three years since
an effort was first made to secure an
appropriation for the building of this
road. Tbe citizens of Sandon and
the mine owners of. Idaho basin and
adjacent district bave frequently sig
nitted their willingness to meet one-
halt the expense of building this
road. The Turner government
promised a liberal grant for this purpose, but the Martin Semlin party
on their accession refused to be
bound by the pledges of their predecessors tn office. Since then no
movement has been made in the
matter.
Assn ordinary business proposition, it would seem to be good policy
on the part of the government to
grant the required sum for the con
stmctloncf this road. The cost has
been figured at $7,000, which would
mean an expenditure by the government ot 93,500. It is a very conservative estimate that the increased
output of this district would repay
the government, as per the Provincial tax of one per cent., within two
years. One hundred dollars is the
aversge value of a ton of Slocan ore;
one dollar is one per cent; 13,500 is
the amount of the tax on 3,500 tons
of ore. The Ivanhoe alone has far
more than this blocked out and on
the dump, not to mention the numerous smaller properties lying idle for
want ot better shipping facilities.
Entirely sside from the fact that
the  Slocan,   although  the greatest
revenue-producing mining sub-division in B. C, has never received any
return consistent with the taxes annually paid by the mines, it would
seem that our legislators were lacking In business capacity if they
longer' refuse to cooperate in the
construction of this work, which
would not only benefit the mine
owners, but also ths merchants, the
citizens, the city, the government
and everyone else in any way connected with it.

The following is from the mining
column of the Toronto Globe of Jan.
24th, and is the first record we have
seen of a transfer of Payne stock:
A Montreal syndicate has just completed the purchase of one hundred
thousand shares of the stock of the
Payne Mining Company, which owns
thefsinous Payne mine and other
properties on the Payne Mountain in
the Slocan country. Tbe par value
of the shares is $8.50. A- portion of
this stock was taken up in London,
but most of it was purchased in Montreal. The Payne is one of the greatest mines of British Columbia, and
its record has been a remarkable one.
Boetock Cup.
The Kaslo curling club is out with*
an invi^tion to tbe Sandon club to
go to Kaslo to play for the Bostock
cup. It is not likely that this invite-
iton will be accepted as the cop was
presented to tbe Sandon club by
Hewitt Bostock with the understanding thst it should remain in Sandon
and be played for annually until
such time as it was captured by any
other team by winning three successive matches, in which case it would
dually become the property of the
winning team.
It is probable that the match will
be. brought off in Sandon next week
and invitations will be sent to every
club in tbe Kootenay. Rossland
.vilI be exited to send two teams,
Nelson two, Kaslo one, Revelstoke
��nd Slocan City curlers speak of
being represented. The match will
therefore occupy tbe greater part of
two days in playing. An effort will
be made to complete all arrangements to-day, so that the event may
be brought off as early as possible.
In consideration of the number of
contestants a second prize will probably be offered.

Liquid Hydrogen.
It is now eight months since that
final triumph of the labrstory, the
liquifying of hydrogen, was accomplished5, and Prof. Dewar at the Royal
Institution has described that most
volatile of gases when reduced to tbe
coldest substance ever known.
When pure it is colorless, transparent liquid, with considerable refractive power. It has a well-defined
meniscus, but no appearance of being
a metal, as Faraday thought it might
prove to be. It is not a conductor of
electricity.. Its density is very deceptive. At first he thought it might
be about half that of water, but try
measuring a given volumn and ascertaining how much gss it produced, he found its density to be only
one-fourteenth that of water, or six
times less than that of the lightest
liquid hitherto known. One litre
weighed only seventy grammes. It
instantly froze and solidified air and
oxygen, and hence enabled the density of those two solids to be ascertained.
A little ball cooled in It and exposed to the air was first covered
with a coating of solid air, and then
began to drip liquid air. A piece of
cotton wool soaked in it appeared to
be magnetic, but the liquid itself,
Prof. Dewar is satisfied, is not magnetic. This phenomen must there-
tore be due to the cotton wool lieing
immediately filled with solid oxygen,
which is highly magnetic.
Prof. Dewar explained how vacuums of high tenuity were easily obtained bv immersing a closed tube
in liquid hydrogen. The air in the
tube was immediately solidfied and
if the tube was so arranged that the
portion containing the accumulation
of solid air could be sealed up, the
other part bad, according to Sir
William Crookes' calculation, a pressure amounting to only one-ten-millionth of atmosphere. 'With vacuum
vessels for use with hydrogen, it was
therefore not necesssry to pump out
air; it was only needful to pat liquid
hydrogen in a double-walled vessel
and It made its own vacuum by solidifying the air between the two
walls.
Figures from msnrj Camps.
The sverage value of the ore of
the Homestake mine in the Black
Hills, South Dakota, is 13.71 per ton,
and it has paid in dividends ��6,431,-
250. The Highland in tbe same
camp has paid in dividends 4*3,421,-
918 on ore running 12.82 to the ton.
The Dead wood Terra has paid $1,-
332.0U0 on ore running 11.62 per ton.
The Treadwell Alaska has paid in
dividends in eleven years $3,447,628,
the ore tor tbe first five years averaging not more than 1205 per ton.
During the last year the value of the
ore increased to $2.82 per ton and
the mine paid in dividends tGOQOOO.
Tbe Alaska Mexican mine, located
near the Treadwell, has pud $202.-
000 in dividends on ore averaging
$3.67 per ton. Some of the other
large producing gold fields In the
United States have ore values as
follows: Gilpin county, Colo., $7;
Amador county, Cal., .$4.25; Grass
Valley, Gal., $6. In Australia ��� the
value of tbe ores tu the different
camps sre: Victoria district, $9;
Ballarat, $8.50; Clemev $8. New
Zealand ore averages $10.06 and the
Transvaal republic $10. ' Hie cost of
mining in the different district* referred to has been from 50 cents to
$1.00 a ton, and the cost of milling
from 34 cents to 90 cents.
Hat! Mtnea Stock Going Up.
Nelson Tribune: For the past tew
weeks the holders of Hall Mines
shares have had the gratification ot
seeing Hall Mines climbing up. Yes
terdav the stock wss quoted at 17s
6d., or just 60 cents below par.
There does not appear to have been
anv general reason for the advsnce
of the past few weeks, unless it is
that the public began to realize that
the stock was bain* unduly beared.
The par yalue of Hall Mines stock is
20 shillings, but after the disappointing statement issued at the last general meeting, the stock kept falling
until 6s. 3d. was reached. The firran
cial papers in commenting upon this
drop generally agreed that the shares
were worth more than they were
quoted at, and that they would be a
good buy at anything under 10 shillings. As a result, the shares commenced to find favor in the market,
and kept climbing up from lis. 3d.
until they reached 17s. on January
13. A week later they advanced
another 6d. This was tbe top notch
in the recent advance, and they
have since eased off a little. Notwithstanding that the fluctuation of
the past few weeks made it possible
for investors in Hall Mines stock to
more than double their money, there
was very little speculation indulged
in locally.
Tbe American Newspaper Publishers' Association has taken up the
question of tbe preservation of forests, and prepared a brief to the
Joint High Commissioners for the
United States and Canada. In this
brief it is stJted that "denudation of
our forests by pulp mills and saw
mills in the four states of Msin, New
Hampshire, .Vermont and New fork
is progressing at tbe rate of 1700
square miles per annum. The chief
of tbe Bureau of Forestery of the
Department of Agriculture at Washington calculates that forest fires are
causing an annual loss of twenty
million dollars. In considering the
timber problem of the country .spruce
wood constitutes a most important
factor. There is no available spruce
in the United States west of New
York, except a limited amount In
West Virginia, a patch of 50,000
acres hi Michigan owned by the
Niagara Paper Mills, and a similar
area in Wisconsin. It is, therefore,
tsir to consider the question of preserving the spruce forests as apply
ing mainly to New Hampshire and
New York." V
The unfortunate Spanish soldiers
returning home defeated, on their
transports, bave endured the extreme
miseries of disease snd hunger. Orr
the Caehemire, just arrived at Barcelona, 47 men died of starvation, and
134 others are weakened to a dangerous degree. The men revolted
on the voyage, killed a bullock and
ate it raw. According to figures
published in Madrid, 80,000 men
died of sickness during the test
Cuban campaign. When their comrades are all home again, each a center of discontent and rebellion, there
should be news from Spain.
The coal shipments from Fernie to
West Kootenay points alone for the
first two weeks of January amounted
to something over 2000 tons This
would have been greatly fncressed
hsd the coal company been able to
get all tbe cars tbey wanted.
A monster locomotive wss constructed in a -Pennsylvania shop re-
cently In 21 hours and 30 minutes.
Two locomotives of ordinary size
were demolished one day last week
in sn adjoining state in less than one
second. Our powers of destruction
still surpass those of construction.
DuringIheTpast week the TTafl
Mines, Limited, exported two cars of
bullion over the Crow's Nest road,
the value of which exceed $40,000.

The Tsmarac mine, near Ymir, made
another shipment of 80 tons of ore to
theNorthport smelter last week. The
value of the shipment was 81,1**, of
which all save 884 was in gold values
The Dundee mill waa opened last
week in the presence of a large number
of visitors. It is expected to keep the
mill constantly running, as there is a
large quantity of concentrating ore on
the dump ana plenty of ore in sight.
The Second Relief mine, near Erie,
has commenced shipping, the ore go
Ing out by the outport of Waneta
During the'present week 98 tons have
been entered at the customs for export
the value of which was 81,558. The ore
carries two ounces of gold and one
ounce of silver to the ton.
It has been estimated on good author
Ity that the output from Ymir will be
close on 7,000 tons for the month oi
February from the six shipping mine)*,

Under the methods of mining now in
vogue it will be entirely possible to
operate the mines of Rotslsnd to a
depth of at least 6,000 feet. Already in
the Lake Superior copper Brines, where
conditions are similar to those prevailing here, plants sre being installed of a
sine that will enable the mines to ba
worked to a depth of AflOO feet at a
lower cost than hss hitherto been possible in the upper drifts. It is becoming paradoxically true that the deeper
the mine tbe cheaper tt is worked. On
comparing tbe state of tbe Rossland
mines with those of the Lake Superior
district, It becomes more than ever apparent that, great as the local urines
are, they are still in their Infancy. The
War Eagle, which has been stoped only
toadepthof 280 feet has been worked
to merely one-twenty-fifth of its available resources when compared with
some of the Lake Superior mines.
There is no question that the veins of
Rossland camp go down Indefinitely
and it cannot he a question that the
rise and values of the ore bodies will
extend down at toast equally with their
present showing. On that basis, the
War Eagle if worked only to the 6,000-
foot level will produce the sum total of
112,500,0000.

A Seattle dispatch states that the
recent paaaage of the act by the Provincial Legudsturo prohibiting aliens
from securing placer mining claims iu
the Province has called forth many pro-
testa from Americans directly interest

the law At a meeting of Alaskan
citixena it was decided to send the following telegram to Governor Brady, of
Alaska, who is now in Wsshington:
"Two hundred citisens of Alaska in
convention assembled here do request

It is provided in the South Kootenay railway bill, now passing
through the Legislature that "The
company shall be bound to carry
over its line of railway, without
charge, all persons whose transportation would otherwise he a charge

of such a condition in railway charters in thb Province and is.a long

When a painter runs seross a color
he doesn't know the name of he calls
it drab; so when a miner strikes a
rock that is too much for him he
usually calls it porphry and le's it go
at that, says the Mining and Scientific
Press. Such "porphry" is in most in
stances simply country rock or dikes
altered by hot water, which took out
some elements and replaced them by
others. It is considered a good sign
of permanence, because it indicates
that there was sufficient mineral

'Therefore be it resolved, Tbst ss

It Is hardly the square thing to

resigned tbeir seats the Semlin-Martin
government could hardly be expected to hurry along the day of re-elec

as to the results. If we are to judge
from the action of the Turner government in the Cassiar bi elections, they
would have done the same thing with
Mr. Martin and his adherents if they
were smart enough and bad the op

suggested repeal of ��� the act relating
to oriental labor In consequence of the
������TIPS"   TO   FRI-ND8.
He is a wise man who re ver gives
a "tip" to a friend, says the London
Mining World.   It saves much unpleasantness.  Many a friendship lasting for years has been marred by a
"tip."   Those who used to walk arm
in arm and take sweet counsel together now stand apart like hairs on
the back of an electrified cat.   As
the old son^r says,   "Thev meet as
strangers  now.'    Worse than  that,
they meet'almost as enemies.   The
one who has received the "lip"���by
which, of course, we are assuming lie
has lost money���regards his quondam
friend with a scowl.   In an omnibus
they take remote seats.   As tbe train
approaches the platform the one will
be seen getting into one carriage and
the Other into another.   A meeting
in a restaurant is in the nature ot a
contretemps, snd in tbe corridor of a
theatre it is astonishing to what pitch
of perfection the art ot looking the
other way can  be carried.   They
used to visit each others bouses, but
that has long since ceased.   Mrs.
Jones has become embroiled in the
hostilities, and it would take a good
deal to persuade her to speak to Mrs
Smith.   Mrs  Smith,  on  the  other
hand, tosses her head contemptuouslv
if she meets Mrs.  Jones, and it goes
tc a higher altitude should she at the
same time be wearing her latest bun
net.   Now  what has produced  all
this unpleasantness?   A "tip"���and
yet if tbe motives of the individual
who gave it were fathomed to their
deepest depths it would he found that
the sole desire that animated the per
'son who gave it was to do his Iriend
a good turn.   In all probability at
the very time he advised his friend
to buy he bought himself, and, therefore, stands in the position of a mutual
sufferer.   But this counts for nothing
to his friend, to whom the cardinal
fact is that he has lost  money, and
that be would not have lost it if it had
not been for his friend's "tip."   Of
course if the "tip" had gone the other
way, and realized wliHt was predicted of it, the  friendship  would   not
have been disturbed.    Mr. Jones and
Mr. Smith would  still be walking
arm in arm, and the partners of their
bosoms would still have been regard
Mng':e4tch   other   with   complacent
smiles.-   But here another peculiar
pfiase in our poor fallen nature asserts
itself. . If the "tip" is lucoeesful, the
brie who benefits by It does not think
anything like so much of the kindness of his friend in glvhig it, as he
does of his own cleverness in taking
it. He tells the story of his success
far and wide, and sfter a time the
intervention of his friend in the mat
ter isobIiteratcd,and one would never
think, hearing the story, that the
friend had anything to do with it.
It is very "much like the guides at
Waterloo. If they have a French
party of tourists, the great hero of the
occasion is Napoleon, and one would
fancy that Wellington was somewhere
else on that occaaitm. When thes*
same guides describe the battle to
an English audience. Napoleon is
relegated in the background, and
Wellington appears in all the glorv
of victory. It, therefore, comes to
th's, with "tips" given to friends,
that if they lose their money vou are
exposed to their upbraiding*, and if
thev make money you get no credit,
but the result is generally attributed
to your friend's own cleverness, The
wise man is he, probably, who never
gives a "tip* at all.

The Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,
Secretary of State for tbe Colonies,
speaking at the banquet of the Wolverhampton Chamber of Commerce, reviewed at great length the various
threatening foreign questions confronting England. In connection with the
withdrawal of the ^French demand for
an extension of tbe settlement at
Shanghai, Mr. Chamberlain congratulated bis hearers that Great Britain's
opposition to toe French proposal had
been strenuously supported by representatives of the United States. "That.
I think," he said, "a significant and
noteworthy fact. Nay, 1 think and
hope it will become history. It shows
that circumstances are bringing about
the community of interests between
Anglo-Saxons, which, in the future,
may have far-reaching and beneficial
pistil I fN '*
He welcomed tbe changing tone on
tbe part of Frarrce, declaring that if the
French government deairod an arnica-
ble settlement of all remaining difficulties, Great Britain would meet France
more than half way.
Dwelling elaborately upon the Newfoundland difficulty, the Minister said :
"In spite of charges to the contrary,
nohodv here has tbe slightest desire to
evad**the obligations of the Treaty of
Utrecht; but we do desire that the
rights conferred upon France by that
treatv shonld not be extended and
abused to the injury of our pocket. If,
when those right* are properly defined,
thev are found to possess a value for
France, we ahall be }M*rfet-tly willing to
observe them, or if France is willing
lo anaitpe for tbeir extinction on fair
anil reasonable terms of compensation "
Mr. i bnmberlain described In detail
how rhe French had continually been
encroaching and striving lo extend
their claim* on th* French shore, while
at tin* aame time their interest in the
fishery had been continually decreasing
"In fact.*' he aaid, "bv means of alleged
riirhls, under antiquated treaties, they
have strangled our Colony of Maw-
foundlaitd, and have done so without a
|H��nnv advantage to themselves If
thev'are sincerely desirous of amity
will, England it will be an easy matter
for them to abandon those antiquated
rights for a satisfactory compensation."
In concluding. Mr. Chamberlain psid
a high tribute to the success of Lord
Salisbury's foreign policy, 'remarking;
���It is a reuse for satisfaction that two
great nati'-ns. (iermany and the i'tilted
States, both protectionists at home,
bave proclaimed their intention to adhere to tho principle of the 'open door'
in their foreign possessions. VVe shall
regard their expansion without jealousy, aud shall welcome their co-operation, and, I think, without being too
sanguine we may rely upon their sympathy nnd assistance in securing the
general adoption of a principle to which
we attach so much importance."
Apro|��os *>f the foregoing we reproduce from the Manchester Weekly
Times, a recent article iu theGaulols of
Paris bv Edmund Harsncoort, which
gives expression ro one French view of
rhe Anglo-Saxon race and ltd present
posititm in the Worlds politics. The
writer takes l/ord Salisbury's recent
speech for his text, and quote* an
Italian journal's statement that England
is seeking a quarrel with France, aud
that the danger brought to an acute
stage by the Fashoda question, though
it hss been avoided for the preseut���
thanks to the good sense of France���
mav reappear in Ihree or six months
Not in three months nor in six months,
savs M , Harancourt, for autumn or
winter is England's time She will
wait, but un longer than can be helped,
for "time is money " She will wait, and
will in some mysterious way foster the
internal troubles of France, which will
help her so much at the opportune time.
The Dreyfus af'slr, the Fashoda diffi
culty, the strikes���all kept stirred
no one knows how���all have fallen
gether, as with one accord, in such a
wav that it is impossible not to see in
them the work of some skilful hand,
especially if it be considered that all'
these things happened in the autumn,
just at the time when India is secure
against all invasion by land from a
Russian army on account of the snow
that closes the mountain masses.
England is mild and gentle in the
spring, when the gates of India are open
and the northern seas are navigable,
but she is terrible, "intractable, and
ferocious wben she has obtained the
aid of her intermittent ally, the autumn.
Autumn and winter are her two friends.
France, Russtu and Germany, who dare
to have fleets, are her three enemies.
The end in view is to crush them, one
after another, and thus to conquer
finally the dominion of the sea, which
in this commercial age is the dominion
of the world.
Thus the blockade of the world's business will be established.
For the object is, in M. Harancourt'*
view, frankly, not conquest or glorv,
and still less national honor. The object is to establish on a firm and sure
basis���unassailable, if possible���a commercial supremacy, or rather, a monopoly.
On one side of the map America, on
tbe other England; let the rest be suppressed! Thus the t*ro children of the
Anglo-Saxon race are dividing the
earth between them, until tbe day shall
arrive when these two Aiaxes, coming
face to face, will each find tbe other in
the wav.
This hypothesis, says the Frenchman,
is not  fantastic; ail  history   tends to
confirm it    The mad ambition for a
mortgage on this planet by tbe Anglo-
Saxon race is not an end in and of itself,
a guiding principle, a dream; it is an
instinct.   It shows itself in everything,
in every altitude, in every act.   To
this race everything belongs, everything is due.   The world is vast, rich,
the common property of all men;  it
takes it,and claims its own everywhere.
Everywhere it feels at ease, everywhere it Is at home.   It needs in our
streets, complains the French writer,
more room than we have ourselves; it
elbows us out of the way and treads on
our- feet, and if it step* on our toe* we
are the ones who have been at fault!
It is the perpetual invader, tbe ubiquitous  possessor;  its  privileges extend
throughout the universe.    This presumptuous state of mind make an individual  an   extremely   disagreeable
neighbor in a railway carriage, but a
nation superb and strong
Do not say that it colonizes; to colonise is to go away trom home, and this
ratv believenCthat'it cannot go out of its
own house so long as it stays on earth.
To take Mars or Venus might be colonising; but as for Asia, Africa, America
or Oeeanica, England does not take
them; it enters into possession of its
own. When it settles in a new country
it is onlv because it has previously
neglected to claim its rights there.
When it appears other governments
must watch over their inhabited provinces or waste places as the attendants
iu museums watch the thumbs of the
statues or the coverings of historic
chairs as soon as a car load of Cook's
tourists I* emptied into the galleries. If
a Frenchman percils on a statue his
name or his sweetheart's name, the
Anglo-Saxon, more practical, slips a
piece of it into his pocket.
It is proper to take everything. So
it is not tbe French aloue who are
menaced, It. is the whole world It is
not a political idea that is being carried
out, It ts an instinct The work began
two thousand vears ago. It was begun
even before England as such existed,
aud no centurv has seen it interrupted

At the annual banquet of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce the

speech from the threae at the opening
of parliament would announce that tht*

countries continue favorable
"I think," said his grace, "that if the
traditions of etiquette st the furrabru
office permitted, it would b�� poaaihrp
that this oarticular paragraph might He

we are nearest in kinship. We have
come to feel that the cause of friendship

the cause of common interest hind us

alone among the nations of the world

the prospect of the entrance of the
United States upon a more active part

we do, that the aims and objects which

that the Interests of the United Stales

the sympathy so deetdy felt and wi

Parents of growing boys have been
beard to fay that there was practically
no limit to ths amount of food their sons
could devour. It is doubtful, however,
whether one of these parents could read
with any feeling of pleasure the account
of the boyish experience of Leigh Hunt,
the English suthor. He was sent to
school st Christ's Hospital, in 1798. In
his sutobiogrsphy he tells of the schoolboy fare of that time:
Our breakfast was bread and water.
The bread consisted of tbe half of a
three-halfpenny loaf, according to the |
prices then current.   This was not
much for growing boys, who had ri.��tb
ing to eat from six cr seven o clock the
proceeding evening
For dinner we nad the same quatiut..
of bread, with meat ouly every other
day, and that consisting of a small
slice, such aa would be given to a child
three or four years old. Yet even that,
with all our hunger, we very oiten left
half eaten���the meat was ao tough.
On the other ttsys we hsd s milk por*
ride, ludicrously thin; or rice-milk,
which wst better. There were no
vegetables or puddings Once a month
we had roast beef; and twice a year (I
blush to think of the eagerness with
which it was looked (or!) a dinner of
Krk One was roast, and the other
tied; and on the latter occasion we
had our only pudding, which waa of
peas.
For supper we hsd s like piece of
breed, with butter or cheese; and then
to bed "with what appetite we might "

Mr. Murphy, who has a bad cast
in his eye, was walking down street
when a gentleman walking in a
great hurry from the opposite direction, bumped into him. ''Sir," said
Murphy, "I wish you would look
where you aro going." "And I,
sir," replied the other, "wish vou
would,.go where you are looking/"
A number of constables were being
examined in matters relating to
police duties. On of tbem was asked,
"If you were informed that a linn
had broken loose from a menagerie,
and was nsrming about the streets,
what steps would you take ?" "Jolly
long ones, sir," replied the constable.
A Great Northern guard was elected as churchwarden in a countrv
church in tbe North of Ireland.
The Sunday after bis election he
went, of course, to take up the usual
col lection, and on presenting tire
plate to the first pew, which was occupied hy three young ladies, he
startled the congregation by exclaiming in a rather loud voice,
"Tickets, please.
One one occasion Judge Porter, a
prominent Irish magistrate, in pro
nounoirrg sentence upon an Irishman,
a notorious drunkard, said : "You'll
be confined to jail for the longest
portal the law will allow, and I
trust you will devote some period of
vour time to cursing whiskey." "By
the powers, I will that. Your Honor."
was the ready answer, "and Porter,
too."
A Scotch laird invited an English
friend to stay with him for some fishing. One day the Englishman, who
was a novice at the sport, hooked s
fine salmon, and in his excitement,
tell into the wster. The keeper, see
ing he was no swimmer, hooked on
to him with the gaiT, and wae about
to drag him to land, when the laird
called out; "What are yo about.
Donald? 0It baud o' the rod and

A drowsy old Scotch farmer, sadly
addicted to sleeping in church, settled himself back for hit usual Sunday knap and was well advanced in
his vocal slumbers, when the minis

shouted : "Sit up, John Thomson."
.t)h, I'm no sleeping, sir," tpwtli
John. "Oh, John, how can vou say
that? Can you tell ne what' I said

It waa in one of the Dublin theatres
The play wae "Hamlet," and every
thing went well until Pollnius inquires; "Do you know me, my
lord?* To which Hamlet answers:
"Excellently well; you are a fish
monger." An old woman in the pit
evidently thought this remark s
sneering one, for she jumped up, and
shaking her fist at the noble Dane,
thundered forth ��� "Well, an' if he it,
Isn't r better way of earning a living

A well-known North country
clergyman once had occasion to
preach a charity sermon in Dublin,
tbe length of which disgusted many
of his hearers.   This coming to his
knowledge, and it falling to bis lot
soon after to preach another sermon
of a like kind in tbe same place, he
took special care to avoid falling into
the former error. His text was; 'He
who hath pity upon the poor lendetb
unto the Lord, and that which he
hath given will he pay him again."
After repeating the text in a very
emphatic tone, he added, "Now, my
beloved brothern, you hear the
terms of the loan; if you like tbe
security, down with your dust." Tbe
qusintness snd brevity of the sermon
procured a very large contribution.
Two men wrote to an cditoe asking
his advice on their certain troubles
No. i, the happy father of twins,
of twins, wrote to enquire the best
way to get them over their teething.
Xo. 2 wanted to know how to protect his orchard from the myriad s of
grasshoppers. The editor framed
his answer upon the oithodox lines,
but unfortunately transposed their
two names, with the result that No.
I, who was blessed with the twins,
read in replv to bis query ; Cover
them over carefully with straw and
set fire to tlrenr, and the* little pests,
after jumping about in the fire for a
few minutes, will speedily be settled.
No. 2, plagued with grasshoppers,
was tola to give a little castor oil,
and rub their gums gently with a
bone.
An architect waa being examined
by counsel, who was using every
effort in his power to depreciate the
witnes's opinion. "Yon are a builder, I  believe?"   said  tho counsel.
"No, sir; I am not a builder; I
am an architect."
"Ah, well, builder or architect;
architect or builder; they are very
much the same, I suppose?"
"I bog your pardon, they are Ureal
ly different."
"Oh, indeed! Perhaps you can
state wherein this great difference
exists?"
"An architect, sir, conceives the
design, prepares the plans, draws out
the specifications ; in short, supplies
the mind. The builder is merely
the machine, the architect the power
that puts the machine together and
sets it going."
"Oh, very well, Mr. Architect;
that will do! A very ingenious distinction without a difference." Do
yon happen to know who was the
architect of tho Tower of Babel f
"There was no architect, sir;
hence the contusion."

Hewitt Didnt Know.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., msde one
of those highly eloquent speeches for
which he. has become so famous to an
audience of 63 Sandonites on Monday evening. Mr. Bostock recited
his lesson  about the government's
?>licv on the tariff; the postage, the
ukon administration, the Crow's
Nest deal, lead tariff, etc., in a very
manly little way, and wound up by
rcuueatinjj those in audience who
haa any interrogation handy to
make use of them. One gentleman
in the audienee asked Mr. Bostock
what stand he would take in the
matter in case the B. C. placer mining law excluding aliens from the
rij-ht of Jocating' were carried to
Ottawa for* disallowance. Mr. Bos
took was lost in profound meditation
Hfer several minutes, but finally_a.n*_
nounced that he had not given the
matter his consideration, and hail no
policy on the quostion.
Considering that  Mr.   Bostock   is
sole proprietor of "The Province"
and politically a compatriot of  Joe
Martin's, this answer appeared slight
ly odd to Sandonites.
Mr. Cliffe followed Mr. Bostock
with a stereotyped hrirauj* on the
tariff question rind other momentous
topics, concluding his remarks by ad
muting that he was not a politician,
or public speaker. This, however,
was sufierfluous in addressing a Sandon audience, as it is generally recognized that Mr. Cliffe is a very bum
politician and never was in it as a
public speaker at any time.

Great Excitement in Cripple Creek.
Denver, Colo., Feb. 1.���A special
to the News from Cripple Creek Colo,
says of the recent strike in Isabella
ground:
"Your correspondent saw chunks
of sylvaniie that were three inches
thick and solid metal, and chunks of
���oxidized ore of the same width that
he whittled with <*v pocket knife. No
assays have Ixen made of the rock :
t is not necessary, but pieces of free
gold ore, if ore it can be called at
all, ran over $500,00) to the ton.
The Mollie Gibson never produced
any ore that carried any more ounces
in silver per ton than this Isabella
ore does in gold. With every hour's
work the streak is legthened and
widening. Joining this metallic body
there is six feet of quartz that will
run from HO to 1200 per urn."
Msnager Kilburn said: ' 'I do not
like to say anything that will excite
people sny more than they ore at
present. The metallic ore body has
doubled in size both ways since yesterday morning, Some of the peieen
of ore sre 80 per cent gold. I never
saw such mineral and I do not be
leive its Ike was ever mined in this
or any outer camp jn tire world We
have had no assays taken of the rock
But a ton of it could be picked out
that would run anywhere from 160,
U00to8au0.00Uperion.
"The strike was made to a new ore
body at a depth Of 860 feet. Ths
c-iute has Oreueut at the eevetith lev
e! 200 feet above and also at the
fifth.   At the latter place an assay
was obtained in the face of the drift
yesterday on two feet of ore that
went- better than $1,000 per Urn.
There Is at lesst blocked out In the
level between the ninth snd seventh
levels $5,000,000 worth of ore."
