She holds a remarkably high certificate for a young lady, second
class* for life.
Ice cutting for the hotel was

A good nany people enjoyed u
skate on tlie river bend during
tlie cold snap.
Thermometer said 8 above.
W. AliPi'crombie killed a steer
of R. Hoey'a the other day. Nobody had him arrested, either;
as it was. paid for and intended
for meat for the citizens. It was
a whopper,—1200 dressed.
W. Dickey of 1'achelqua was iu
town Tuesday.
Inglis Uren has been laid up
with rheumatism :—missing all
the skat.ii/_;, Inglis 1 or wns it
too much skating that did it ?

Owl Creek   Hatchery.
Mr. C. I). Sword, the Dominion
Fishery Inspector, accompanied
by Mr. Robinson, superintendent
of the Dominion hatchery at Harrison Lake, with Mr. Forrester,
contractor of New Westminster,
arrived here fltmi Lytton on the
stage Friday evening, to visit,
the site of the new Dominion
hatchery, to be erected ou Owl
creek, a tributary of the liirken-
heud river. The distance from
Lillooet town is about 58 miles ;
thanks however to the arrangements made, the party were enabled to arrive at their destination, early Sunday morning, and
make ihe return journey here by
Monday evening, leaving for
New Westminster on Tuesday's
stage via Lytton. This hatchery
will liave a capacity of handling
45,000,000 eggs ; the site was
selected some years ago Jby one
of the -Dominion officials, as an
ideal location for a hatchery, and
the Provincial Government in
the fall of last year reserved some
three miles of the creek for fish
hatchery purposes.
CURRENT COnriENT
The dyke is giving way iu
places, near Steveston ; West-
ham Island, a very rich fanning
land, is under water. What will
they do next June when the snow
melts, if they can't keep a little
rain water out ?
We have no correspondent in
that thriving town. No ads to
grace our pages, from the Judicial ran tie   of   Lillooet district.
A correction has to lie noted ;
the temperature was only 8 below instead of 16, as reported.
In regard to correspondence,
will somebody please inform the
Prospector if the following is
correct:—
Different kinds of people have
different forms of greeting; in
France it is, '* how do you carry
you ?" On the Pacific coast,
among exiles from Ontario, it
is, "do you think you'll ever go
back?" At Clinton, tbey say,
they say:— "can you Keep up
your spirits up ?"
VANCOUVER.
McLennan, McFeely & Co.
HARDWARE.
It is rumored that the Russian
fleet will come home, now that
Port Arthur cannot be helped.
It seems too bad that the jolly
officers should miss their Xmas
holidays; but they probably had
a good time hanging around the
French island Madagascar, waiting for Stoessel to surrender. A
joke like this iu Russia would be
a railway pass tf) Siberia and nt)
return, until the first president
of Russia is elected. What a lot
will come home to vote, and
drink vodka.
rx7i*\7*k
'".lie Great Northern has take A
control of the V. W. and Y. and
has therefore in operation a line
to the Fraser river. The charter will enable him to connect
with tne Grand Trunk at Hazel-
ton. North Vancouver is to be
the southern terminus, thence
along the coast to Howe Sound,
Squamish, Pemberton Meadows,
und so on. The mayor of Vancouver in a speech referred to the
early construction of this line.

A United States torpedo boat

day. Probably the cook was in

some Lillooet beef, Lytton beans

nothing of Pavilion flour.

St. Mary's Church.
Morning and evening service
were well attended, and partook
a Christmas tone as Arclideacou
Small had to preach elsewhere
that day. Evergreens and other
decorations served to brighten
the church, and the usual choir
wns strengthened. Temperature
and light were carefully regulated. In the morning the subject
was the early life of Jesus, the
wonderful visit of the scientists
from the east, and the Boy in
the temple. Communion service
at the close. The evening lesson
was a study of the likeness betweeu creation and redemption.
The union Sunday school was
a little light in attendance as
the cold caused the more delicate
members to remain indoors, and
the more hardy ones to go for
a skate. Keep au hour a week,
boys, for Sunday school; come
aud see the faces and get a bright
paper. In Mr. Laidley's absence
Dr. ChirKe had charge ui Uie

The fall of Port Arthur
will not make fall wheat fall
as did Sebastopol. A farmer
and a miller in old Ontario
had an understanding about

the manufacturer wanted il

Old' Man Marsh did not

No complete collection of Miss
Johnson's poems ia in existence, I
regret to say. The above example
of her work is quoted Irom a small
volume published in lbS'-i, entitled
"The White Wampum."- Since that
date, however, cany of her best
poems have been produced, and, it is
to be hoped, will be gathered together in book form in the near future.
For no living Canadian poet has
anything like the interest for us that
Hiss Johnson has. This is'largely
on account ol" her race. She is. the
•laughter of the late G. H. M. Johnson, head chief of the Mohawk Indians, who married un English lady,
a Mfsa Howells, a relativ. Of William Doan llowells, the novelist.
Pauline was born on 'the Srx Nation Indian lie. erve in the County of
Brant, and was educated at tho
Brantford Model School* He_" first
verse was-published in "Oems ot
Poetry," a New York periodical,
and for many years she has been a
contributor to the best periodicals in
Canada and the United States.
The predominant qualities of her
poetry, as we have it in "The White
Wampum," are those whicli havs
long been recognized as distinguishing her race: eloquence, graceful imagery, picturesque language and dramatic passion. The Iroquois were an
intellectual, as well as an imaginative, people, and established a confederacy that for years held th« balance of power oil this continent. This
daughter of theirs, it is evident, has
inherited race instincts and traditions that one time found expression
in such deeds as that of Ojistoh, or
such choice as Dawendine's. Now
they inspire a pen. Here and there
tbe "wilderness girl" crops out. In
such lines as ''Pcnseroso," for example—thc third stanza of which
reads:—
"Vet me bat feel, athwart ny cheek the
lash
Of whipping triad,  hat hear the' torrent
dash
Adwvn the mo_nf_la steep, 'twere more nijr
choice
Than touch of bumas band, than humaa
voice."
Miss Johnson's attitude towards
Nature in this volume appears to be
a stock-taking of effects, tuough an
appreciative stock-taking; | still, occasionally, as in the lust stanza; of
"Shadow Uiver," her contemplation
of nature becomes a revealing
agency, an opening into the transcendent world, or what we choose to
think so, though the idea may bo
to the real world no more than, the
shadows wero to the far fir trees,
and brownish hills, and "the little
fern-loaf bending."
In 1S91 Miss Johnson began ' a
species of entertainment, tho unique
feature o. which was the recitation
of her poems on Indian life in costume and character. She has been
most successful, having appeared in
England, the United States nnd all
over Canada. Her hniric i* in J3t*«.uV-
