In Grading his Lots Mr. Thomas Sproatt  Ran  Into a
Vein of Quartz���Some "Dirt" That Was Panned
Proves Very Rich���An  Interesting Story
An Interesting gold strike was
made on Ninth avenue on Satur-
ilny afternoon, by Mr. Thomas
Sproatt, while lie was at work
grading on his lots. Whether the
"strike" will turn out to be of
commercial value or not remairs
a ���     ��� 1  i     ���
in In* geen. At present it is being
regarded more as a scientific curiosity, though experienced miners
who were called in and who
assisted in panning some of the
dirt, agree that it made a richer
showing than anything they had
Ken in the mining camps.
May Have Assay Made
The Hold is showing in the blue
dirt and also in the decayed con-
lilunieratc rock. About a ton
of quartz was taken from the
kink on Saturday afternoon, all
of which shows minute particles
ol fret- gold under the microscope.
It would undoubtedly assay high,
ami the owner is being urged to
have some of the ore properly
assayed, "jusi for the fun of it."
Will Investigate Further
On aji adjoining lot, where the
owner was building a garden,
sonic indications of gold were
previously found. The suggestion
was made by a miner that, the
"strike" was worth investigating
further, on the chance that a
sufficient quantity of tin- precious
ore might be found to make it
worth while for the neighbouring
lot-owners to enter into a cooperative mining scheme.
The annals of mining contain
instances of .rich deposits being
found within very limited    areas.
In the meantime, the "Ninth
Avenue Gold Strike" while rich
enough and genuine enough, is
still within the stage of a neighbourhood joke.

Saskatchewan Wants to Bring
in Harvesting Help from the
States���Afraid of a Shortage
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Regina, Sask., July 17.���Owing
to thc scarcity of help the Saskatchewan government has taken
up with the Dominion Government the question regarding the
amount of money immigrants must
have under the regulations to
enter lhe Dominion." The matter
is expected to be settled within
a shorl lime, as negotiaitions are
under way between the government and lhe railways practically
assuring a sufficient supply of
harvesters if the monetary barrier
can be removed.
In the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas ar.d Oklahoma there are sonic
thousands of men unemployed as
the crops there were very small.
These will be brought in if the
money qualification is removed.

Praiseworthy Work of Mussallem Brothers on Fourth
Avenue���Are Now Growing All Kinds of Vegetables
Where Only Skunk Cabbage Bloomed  Before
Anyone Can Do It
To turn the sour muskeg into
ii smiling green garden, rich in
kitchen vegetables, has been the
��"ik of the brothers Mussallciii,
wlm run a store on Fourth avenue
near the General Hospital. Their
wnrk is a lesson, ard an encouragement io any lot owner who is
ambitious lo have a garden.
A Fertile Patch
A News reporter who walked
"in that way recently was pleased
���nd delighted with what he saw.
A patch of about fifty by fifty
I"', is crammed full with all
manner of vt getable produce. The
marvel is that a piece of earth so
���mall could grow so much.
All Kinds of Things
I hi re are imnumerable rows of
tempting lettuce and radishes In
various siagis of growth, but all
'���"���ni; well; potatoes, cabbage,
Cauliflower, rhubarb, spinach, car-
r"i-. onions, beans, corn, and some
native vegetables from their own
country of Syria, which thc bro-
'1ms are trying to raise in Canada.
Grapes Look Good
"ot   content   with   vegetables
alone, the brothers are, trying
what fruits will grow here. Some
apples and pear trees Imported
from Vancouver have died, but
some apple scedlirgs look promising. Several grape vines are
planted and appear very healthy.
The brothers are experienced in
vine-culture ard quite expect to
be gathering grapes off iheir little
vines next year.
The experiment shows what can
be done with the muskeg patches.
The ground was prepared by digging a trend) alongside 10 drain
the excess witter. Tite niiiskeg
was furred up with a spade and
mixed wiih sard and cm* in.' ure.
Now it looks like a strong loam,
and the strength of the vegetable
growth is wonderful.
Any One Can Do It
In iis way the resuls is vastly
more 6J coun gi'g than if i. had
been accomplished b> ;��� Govir-
mc.iu Experimental farm. Ary-
one can do ii and be rewarded, like
the Mussallem brothers with a
harvest of tender, luscious vegetables for the dinner table.

the contractors for the Transcontinental have all done splendid
work. The settlers in this district
are reported safe with only three

have just returned from Porcupine and Cochrane, and report
that the relief committees are
doing good work. Splendid organisation is at Cochrane and
everybody is being fed and sheltered. A lunch counter has been
opened at the station. Building

on forty small si rue lures. Several
carloads of blankets and tents
from ilu* militia-department reached Porcupine today.

After a three weeks' visit to
the Salvation Army station beyond
Hazelton, where the army has been
located for over ten years, Captain
Kerr of the Citadel here, has returned to Rupert. He had a
very successful iriji, "mushed it"
all the way from this city to
Hazelton, and returned by boat
and train. Hazel ton, he reports,
rather quiet now, and he gives
good accounts of the district generally from his personal, and the
Army point of view. The kindest
of welcomes always greeted him
at the various camps where he
stopped and held services on the
way up.
Just beyond Camp 17 Captain
Kerr had the thrilling experience
of helping fight a bush fire which
extended round the slue between
him and his destination. The
men from the camp had been
fighting it for two or three days.
The slue was too deep for Captain
Kerr lo ford, and he had to make
tolerable at some stages. It took
him fully half an hour to make
the li11It- distance he traversed.
Little Paradise Beyond
Four miles beyond Hazelton
is the long established S. A. station, now quite a little village.
Here Captain Kerr found the
prettiest bit of garden he has
seen for many a day. After ten
years' arduous work amongst the
Indians there during which time
thc officers had frequently to
face even the rille muzzle from
hostile natives, the little station
has begun to blossom beautifully.
Every kind of vegetable is growing
there, and the grassy level spaces
are like English lawns. It is a
little paradise now, and shows
how the country repays effort.

For the Year---Prince Rupert Had Less Rain Than  a  Host
of Places in England, Sunny Japan, Hawaii and Mexico
Was  Only  128 Inches  in  a Whole  Year
(Canadian Press Despatch)
Ottawa,   Out.,   July   17.--The
Railway   Commission   has   issued
two drastic orders, one for the
  ptotection  of  railroad  employees

At last the lie about Prince
Rupert's rainfall has been nailed
to the counter. No longer can
dwellers in rival cities trade upon
the fact that no authentic figures
are in existence to correct their
stories of the rains in RuiK-rt.
For a year past, an officer of the
Dominion Government, Mr. F. W.
Dowling, maanger of the Dominion Government Telegraph service,
and meteorological recorder, has
been patiently at work. Morning
after morning on the stroke of
five, he has trudged to the weather
station on the hill, and there
measured the rainfall for the previous twenty-four hours. And his
records for the year just completed since July 1st, 1910, till
June 80th, 1911, show thai exactly 128.80 inches of rain fell in
Prince Rupert.
How This Compares
How does this compare with
the reports? A gentleman writing
to Mr. David H. Hays last week,
said he wished precise Information
on the rainfall as he had heard
that the ranlfall in Prince Rupert
averaged 247 inches, and that it
was far too rainy for anyone lo
live there In comfort.
With Other Places
As Compared with the rainfall
in other places���which is lhe only-
way  most  of  us  can   make  any
comparative judgment���the Prince
Rupert  rainfall is nothing at all
to be afraid of.   There are places
in England where ihe rainfall
is much heavier. At Scathwnitc,
for instance, lhe records there
showed a rainfall of 14.r) Indies,
On the coasl of "Sunny Japan"
a rainfall of 118 inches is a common one. In some parts of Japan
it reaches 170 inches.
In Sunny Mexico
The man who would Ik* frightened away from Prince Rupert by
reports of the rainfall, and go to
Mexico instead would be badly
mistaken, for in Vera Crux, Mexico, the rainfall is nearly fifty
|K*r cent greater than in Prince
Rupert. The actual figures for
both places are Vera Crux 183
inches, Prince Ruperl 128.80 Ins.
Hawaii is popular as a pleasure,
tourist and health resort, but
thc rainfall of Hawaii is 210
inches, which makes Prince Rupert look like a dry climate.
Indeed the furlher south one goes,
lhe heavier the rainfalls liecome.
The Worst Yet
Maury in his Physical Geography of the Sea gives the rainfall of Cherraponju, a mountinn
in Southeastern Assam as 00")
inches, all of which falls between
the months of April and October,
during the South Western Monsoon.   But the worst yet is given
by  Captains  Fltsroy ard  Hall
of the British Navy who measured
on the Wesl Coast of South
America, near Cape Horn, an
annual rainfall of 1,308 inches.
There is another advantage
about Prince Ruperl rain. It
does not eonie in deluges creaiing

Better Asked Before Marriage
Than Afterwards
A wise soul has said that mar*
riage is a matter of being able
to laugh at one another's jokes.
Bui there are some more fundamental things,
If he is a rich man and it is his
only attribute, tin- question is do
riches bring happiness?
Is he a poor mar.���so poor that
after ilu- lirsi glamour <>f love is
spent there is nothing left to spend
even for the creature comforts
that are necessary?
Is he a real companion, it does
he need many other companions
to fill i'i the following of his natural
Is he a man who can prove his
interest by real support, or will
she forever have to assist i'i the
actual money-making?
Is he interested in the same
pleasures or is there a material
difference as to what constitutes
This is certainly a new idea
as opposed to the so-called old*
fashioned women. She it is who
accepts marriage as a sacrifice, a
matter of servitude*���calling it love
���who thinks of nothing but the
home and the baking and the
I cooking.
If a girl would look before she
leaps in this thoughtful ugc of
living, perhaps the words "until
death do us |iart" would morc*
often actually come to pass; not
in the tolerant sense but in the
true sense.
Yes, says, "Sophie Leob" then-
are many, many happy marriages.
But these arc not a result of
chance, but raiher of choice.

It is the custon when dining at
a restaurant for a woman io precede a man when going to the
table, but il is not uncommon
for the man to go first, and good
taste and common sense will probably make this latter the rule.
A menu card is given to the
woman as well as to the man. but
she has nothing to do with ordering
the dinner unless the man ask*-
her to make some selection. Even
then she should not do much
If her escort asks her lo choose
a salad or her own sweet she should
do so without hesitation, as she
should answer any question frankly
befiirc the fo-od has Ik*cii ordered.
After the order has lieen given
she should refrain from suggestion
or critical comment.
If she wishes the waiter to give
her a fork or any other small
article that may be required
through the meal she is mil to
ask the waiter for it, but to tell
her escort that he may m-ihI for ii.
A woman is not supposed to
give a waiter any order, but to
net in all ways as though she were
in a private house.
On leaving lhe table the woman
follows or precedes the man. as
she wishes. She should put on
her gloves before leaving the table.

For Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Will Start
Branch in the City ���Meeting on Wednesday
ten hundredweight should be fined
with brakes, and double rigs carrying one ton should be braked
also. 'Phis (or the protection of
the   horses  on   the   temporarily
steep streets. Regarding the hauling of dump wagons on rails, Mr.
Robinson remarked that he was
pleased to see that the contractors
are cartful to provide good footholds where the teams start the
pull. After the wagon is going
it is fairly easy to haul. He commented favorably on R. A. Mc-
Mordie's wire rope ar.d engine
system of haulage.
Happened in Hazelton
Mr. Robinson's trip to Hazelton was with a view to looking
into the conditions of the horses
used by the Indians. He found
them generally in very good condition, but noticed one or two
cases where the matter of shoeing
had been so badly neglected that
the hoofs were worn to the quick.
A bartender named Harry La-
londe was fined SI00.00 and costs
for having cruelly thrown ammonia into a dog's eye, destroying
the animal's sight. Two dogs
had to be destroyed, one because
it was diseased, and the other
owing to extreme decrepitude.
Magistrate Price Ellison presided
over the court cases, the ammonia
case, ar.d one of working a horse
suffering from box-spavin.
Mr. Robinson was impressed
with the prospects of the Hazelton
district particularly the coal claims
arour.d Ground Hog Mountain.
Asked whether he thought it
might possibly be "cruelty to
wives" io take them into the
still undeveloped districts awaiting
thc rails, he laughingly replied
that all lhe wives he had met
then* were capable and happy
housekeepers enjoying their share
i> their husbands' pioneering.
"Vis, Prince Rupert in its pres-
ent stage is rather a heavy city for
horses,  hut   I  am pleased  lo say
that every horse 1 have seen so
far in the city seems in splendid
con dil ion."
These are the words of H. A.
Robinson, Provincial Inspector of
the S< dety for Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals in B. C He
arrived in the city yesterday by
train after journeying from Hazelton where he has lieen busy for
a few w.tks, ar.d it is his intention
to re-organise the Prince Rupert
branch ��>f th.* S. P. C. A. Probably
In cause of ihe excellent care taken
of their horses by teamsters here,
and the general kirdness shown
by the people of Prince Rupert
to dogs and other animals, the
branch of the society here has
not been very prominent. But
it is as well io have it live all the
Meeting on Wednesday
The Mayor will preside over a
meeting  on   Wednesday  night  at
8 o'clock in the police court room
with   this  object   in   view.     Mr.
Robinson  will  lx-  there, and  as
many  citizens of  both  sexis as
are Interested in the proper care
of animals should certainly attend.
President,   secretary   and   oftice-
liearcrs will be appointed.    Mr.
II.   Gowan   is  General  Secretary
for  B.  (".  and Captain I Moraine
President,   while   for   Vancouver
branch   Captain  A.  H.   Reid  is
President, and F. Swtt-tman Secretary.    Major Ciibson has acted
as President without the assis.ance
of   a   Secretary   for   lhe   society
branch   temporarily   established
some time ago in Prince Rupert.

news of the supposed theft reached
I the police office and with a seamy
description of the man, Constable

McAnhur had spotted his ma.i and
very quietly arrested him.

no need to steal as he has plenty
of money of his own, will be
