llie Mill bury Nickel      lues.
Fifteen years ago tho world's sup.
I ly of nickel wus chielly drawn from
Ihe minis of .\ew . _ue ioiiiu, supplemented by the Gap Mine in Pennsylvania, and a few isolated workings
tn Sweden and Norway; to-day
about oni-lialf is derived from the
Sudbury dis.l'i.t in Northern Ontario, where mining operations began in
1886. Some years ago experts employed by tbe United Slates Navy
Department examined the Sudbury
deposits of nickel-bearing one (a pyr-
I'holite containing from 1 i-*"i to >H
per cent, of nickel, and from 12 to l
I er cent, of copper, which does not,
therefore, deserve the mime of "kup-
fer nickel" or "goblin-copper ') and
reported that there were 650,000,000
tons of ore in sight, and since then
other important discoveries, some* of
which are already being developed,
bave been made within an area of
about 2,000 square miles. In 1900
tbe Sudbury district produced 7,-
080,000       pounds       of     nickel       iu
"matte," which averages about _2f>
per cent, copper and 18 per cent,
nickel, and there can bo no doubt
that I.s product will eventually monopolize the world's markets,and thut.
Sudbury is destined to occupy much
tbe same position in regard to nickel-mining lhat Kimberley holds in regard to tho production of diamonds. Wherever strength, malleability, the capability ed' taking a fine
polish, and fi eedoui from rusting are
re piiled- as in Iho construction oi
cannon, small arms, urnior-plale,
boilers aud machinery- nickel steel is
in request, and the fact thai tbe
price of nickel bas risen considerably in tbe lust two or throe years
would appear to show that, tbe supply has not Inci'OaSl .1 pari passu

Among the curious things recently

I.ongf Ilow has made it incumbent
on us lo explain aud justify the expulsion of the Acadians. If it had
heen only Acadians iu Unj abstract
who hud been expelled the affair
would have been forgotten long ago.
Nobody has any sympathy with the
Acadians in the abstract, bcpflliso nobody has ever met t'-om or associated with them in thut form. Expelling
the Acadians would s.arcoly awaken
a passing comment, but expelling two
Acadians is a serious matter and
must I e justified. Longfe'low has
shown us two Acadians, teal, living

not abstractions, people with li".,
hope, affection, love and constancy.

It is only as we regard our fellow-

and sympathies, with f'clings, with
friends and relatives, witli hopes and

lhe London "l-m-t-.e."
In an appreciative sketch of Mr.
Phil May, the famous cartoonist and
humorist artist, M.A.P. tells the following:- -Mr. May's friendliness with
"the force" is of old standing, and
the.o is hardly a policeman in bis
eiistiict who eloes not think of him
whenever any very funny expeiience
is encountered. Only the other day
a constable accosted the artist in
the stieet to tell him a "good story
for Punch." A moment or two later
a second bobby came on the scene for
the Same purpose, and, turning round
a corner in Wt. Johns Wood, Mr.
May found himself supported on
either side by au eager raconteur in
blue, lie then can.o faee to face with
a lady of his acquaintance, and, as
he tells it hill self: "She looked at.
me with such sympathy and an expression that so plainly said, 'Don't
make a f.iss, belter go quietly with
thein.' that even tho bobbies had to
smile at tho sit nation!"
The •• liotlyvillc" Drawings.
The series of "Dottyvillo" drawings in Punch is well known to Mr.
May's artist, fiiends, one of whom
brought him a letter from an lumato
of Nan well Asylum, whicli said: "1

As far back as the year 1358, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef

A company is now working a gold dredger on llie Fraser, with gratifying success, and

Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman s
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, hear, deer, and all.kinds of large and small game
