TRUTHFUL JAMES.
Clinton is soon to have a sawmill, which is expected to reduce
the price of lumber from $53 to
about $23. New houses will be
more common iu Clinton. Some
years ago a saw mill was set up
and cut 100,000 feet, and taken
elsewhere, as it was thought no
more than that amount could he
sold around Clinton. However,
it wus soon taken, and since then
all lumber had to be brought a
distance which is almost prohibitive. Thei-e is plenty of timber to be had within 4 miles, aud
a down-hill haul. Rough lumber ut Lillooet is $18 at the mill.
Wood is f-6.50 sawn and split,^-
nearly twice the Clinton figure.
The appointment is gazetted
of William Saul, Esquire, to be
a, Sti|K.udiary Magistrate and a

Lytton, B. C. Sept. ."». While
Constable D. McGillivray was attempting to arrest J. McKnight,
he pulled a revolver and threatened the policeman's life.
McKnight had been drinking
heavily of late, and while he was
causing a, disturbance in the bar
of the Baillie Hotel, McGillivray
arrived with a warrant for his
arrest. McKnight bolted for his
house and obtained his revolver.
He was pursued from there to
the river, where lie stood at bay
and warned the constable not
to approach, who persisted, however, in advancing until he realized that McKnight was in earnest. He then returned to town,
to obtain a weapon and some
help. In the meantime the .pursued hiul jumped into the river,
and it was thought would escape
as he is a strong swimmer. But
evidently the cold water was too
much for him, for he sank twice.
The constable returned, and on
hearing .McKnight cry for help.

The Vancouver World has tlie
folIo**ving report of the progress
ok' affairs in connection with the
litigation going on.
" The men who now liave possession of the assets of the Iowa-
Lillooet Gold Company have appeared on the scene to fight the
winding-up order granted recently, on application ot C. T. Hancock, this step being necessary
in the first instance in order to
under
which the present holders of the
plant are acting. Air. Senkler
appeared for the interests which
Hancock is seeking to oust, and
Mr. Russell again acted for the
petitioners who had obtained the
order to wind up the Company.
Mr. Senkler asked that the order
might be set aside, taking th,e
ground that the affidavits put iu
had stated what was not true,
namely, that the Company had
uo registered office in British Columbia. Mr. Russell insisted that
the affidavits were perfectly correct, but Mr. Justice Duff said
he would give the other side tin
opportunity to show cause why
thecoiupany should not be wound
up. lie therefore set aside the
winding-up order, and appointed
Thursday, 14th, for hearing the
arguments for and against the
petition.

lhe Lute Aichblshop of Canterbury.
A peculiarity of the lato Archbishop cf Canterbury, whi.h 1 have nt
sen referred to in any of his olitu-
uiies, was the extraordinary harshness and rasping character of his
voice, a peculiarity of which ho was
well awaie and concerning which he
was wont t.o tell all sorts of amusing .'tones', among others one to the
effect that on a Sunday evening*, having slipped into a back pew of a
. opu'l tr church in tho east end ol
London, and joined in the singing of
a Moody and Sankoy hymn from a
. yinn hook whi.h had been extended
io him 1'. io icily fashion by a labor-
.ng man,  ihe  latter, at the end   of
he lirst verse, drew away the hymn.
i ook from him, gave him a dig in
lhe ii s with his elbow and remarked in a loud whisper:
•i:ere,     dry     up,     mister,    you're
s cilin' the show,"
Nor ha.e I seen it mentioned   that
he lite archbishop was descended
in  a  direct  line fiom Lady  Qodiva,
o famous in connection wi h her
it j ol to tide through the streets ol
Coventry. The old archbishop was
proud of this ancestry, as well as of
the fart that he was entitled to bear

Didn't Lo.e III* Head.
A man hopelessly lot in the bush
in South Australia, afler wandering
abort for four days, came upon t e
telegraph line between Adelaide and
Port Darwin. He hadn't strength
to go farther, bt t he managed to
climb a pole and cut the wire. Then
he made himself as comfortable as
possible and waited. The teleg'ap.-
ropai e s vwe sent along the Unu,
and they cam© to the wanderer in
time to •da.'-i his life.
'        Olii-Fashioiiod Girl Mnde New.
People say the old-fashioned girl is
coming into fashion. Jt may be so—
it all depends. But we doubt if the
latest form of feminity will take the
shape of a revival. An adaptation,
perhaps, of a modification, or a re-
viced edition. But a mere replica-
No! Women have their phases, like
the moon and other creations of the
gender, but, unlike the lunar planet,
they never repeat themselves. The
early Victorian gill was a 'Simpering, giggling, blushing, fainting,
ringleted, champagne-bottle shouldered, white-stockinged, cloth-booted, impeccable nonenity. The mid-
Victorian Miss was a thing of
bustles, chignons, sprightliness, archery meetings, and dawning emancipation. The later Victorian New VTo-
man was composed of platform
phrases, cropped hair, thick boots,
formless arguments, affected animadversion of the tyrant man, and do-
s.mit" of thc matiimonial estate. We
to-day are full of "smart" ambitions, overflowing with smart slang,
weighted down with smart ti;ls lcr"
smart clothes, compelled to live in
smart st.ects, to the great attenuation of our has smart incomes. Never, in fact, has there been such an
Old Man of the Sea as this fetish of
smartness that we have been hugging
to our souls—or what represents
them—for the 'last dozen years. Not
to be smart is to be socially dead,
and to be socially defunct it wero
better never to have been born. So
says the modern Saga. With what
result, one need not add. A glance at
names gracing the Bankruptcy Court
lists, cr, say, a few side-lights by a
tax-collector, and the plaints of unpaid tradespeople world alTcr.d somo
contemporary history full of thrilling
situations and go far to explain to
future generations the curious fever-
heat with which the desire to be
smart has afflicted this Edwardian
era. Meanwhile, as ore swing of
the Pendulum inevitably induces another, we are promised a retrogiession
to Arcadian simplicity, which will
dislodge made-dishes, banish
"Bridge" after a.m., introduce the
cult of mere muslin frocks' and leaven our erotic literature with the
heavenly manna of .1 anc Austen and
Alfred Austin. What is to be done
with Ladies' Clubs and private telephones has not yet come up for discussion; but, doubtloss, Phyllis and
Corydon will appropriately re-appear attuned to tho surroundings of
their blue-ribboned era, as the painted fans and mouches noires of Pierrot and Pierrette recede on this overdone horizon.
H:iii..«'il nml  Hurii-il, Yet Lived.
It is not given to mnny mon to be
hanged nnd buried, and yet be able
to tell the tale, but such was the experience of one John Bartenda'e, who
was executed at York in 1634 for
felony. After his body had hung for
nearly an hour, it was buried. A
gentleman passing by the graie.
which had not been filled up, thought
he saw the earth move, and with the
help of his servant, ho disinterred
the convict, who wa.s still olive. It
we.s the custom in those days to
bury sui. ides and executed criminals
without, any coffin. The man waa
carefully treated, and entirely recov-
e-ed. He became hostler at the
coaching-house in York and lived a
most exemplary life. When asked
what he could tell In relation to
hanging, as having experienced it, ho
replied "That when I was turned
off flashes of lire seemed to dart from
my eyes, from which I fell into a
state of darkness and insensiMlitv."
The satisfaction of having tha
washing done early in the day,
and well done, belongs to every
user of Sunlight Soap. ion
