ore blocked out, bciddee considerable ore
sacked ready for shipment.

Chinese servant stories are epidemic.
Here's one told by the Milwaukee Sentinel aa "gospel linth." A West side
woman a few days ago was boasting lo a
caller of the virtues of her Mongolian
C'iok, and the emphasized tbe latter's
systematic methods as his special strong
point. "John finishes his work at
precisely the same minute every
evening," "aid she proudly. "I always
know exactly where he is and what he is
doing at any time of tlie dav." "Well
what is he doing now?" was asked.
"Let nie see. It waa 7 o'clock. Well-
he has just finished putting away the
dishes and at this moment is sweeping
the kitchen. Come, let's go out and see
if I'm not right." They started through
the ilitiiiig-rno'ii, and lound everything
in Its plaee as propheried. In the pantry tbe dishet. were neatly arranged in
their places. Then they opened the
kitchen door. There in the centre of
the room was John, and he was—complacently washing his feet in the dish-
pan ! Tiie embarassed mistress and .ier
convulsed guests retired in haste. Aud
the servant problem was dropped.

The maid of Chicago looked into my eyes
And Biniied in a curious way.
And   M'ltitetl   to   expenunce   thrills   of
At what I was trvine to say.
I told ber 'twas renlly wicked to scoff
At a story of love, and she run
Her eyes o'er my face aud esclamed: "O

You've got the wrong number, old man!
I timidly told her that love nt first sight

Where  flowers at  morn were bejeweled

And laden with odors most sweet.
She'd   reign   as queen  o'er  the cabin

Like  rippling ol  mountain brook came

"That trump never touches the trick."
I worked in a sentiment tnuchingly grand
Of natme'e great scenic displays,
Of loveliness pictured on every hand,
Of rapturous bliss-laden ihtys.

Tried to Kill the Jodsre.
Vancouver, B. C, July 15.—A sensational climax of the Frazer river salmon fishermen's strike occurred recently when a man
alleged to be a union fisherman, named
Michael Sullivan, attempted to shoot J.
A. Russell, police magistrate. The latter
is associated in the management of a cannery, and has been prominent in urging
the prosecution of the fishermen arrested
for conspiracy, intimidation and the kidnaping of Japanese.
The magistrate was coming down from
the police station, where he had held
court. The man, supposed to be Sullivan,
stopped him and, pointing the revolver,
said:' "This is the way to treat the enemies of labor." Before he could pull the
trigger Mr. Russell knocked down the
man's arm and the latter turned, dodged
up an alley and escaped.
A   Butte  Smelter   Starts   Vp.
Butte, Mont., July 15.—After -lieing idle
for six weeks on account of differences
with the employes over the eight hour
question the Colorado smelter has started
up with a full force of men. The trouble
arose over the demand of the smelter men
that the outside men, including machinists, .should receive the benefit of the eight
hour law. The company, not "being willing to concede this, closed down the works.
The men will go to work on the old arrangement, 'by which all men actually employed in the work of smelting get eight
hours a day at the same wages as formerly
paid for 10. The machinists get the nine
hours demanded by the national organizations. The outside machinists work 10
Strike Is Settled at Reading.

the 2700 employes of the Reading Iron
company, including the tiilie works, the
Ninth street and the Olney street mill, is

May 0.
The new scale of wages will be the same
as that paid by the company in August,
IHIMI, which was the boom period of iron
prices. Puddlers will receive $4 a ton and
the other trades in proportion.
The union is not recognized, the com-
|smy reserving the right to employ any
men whether union or nonunion, hut all
of the strikers will be taken back and none
will bc discriminated against.
Soourse In Tennessee,
Memphis, Tenn., July 15.- -Tlio Scourge
of cliiirbiin is creating a reign of terror
throughout the counties of Bolivar, Madi-
■son and Coahoma, in Mississippi, mid it is
rumored that not enough animals have escaped the d'weasc to work the crops for the
remainder of the year. The disease is so
very virulent that it is affecting all forms
of animal life. Seven negroes have died in
the vicinity of Beulah, Bolivar county,
from the disease, and it has created such
dread among other negroes that they are
refusing to take work.
Frank Kelfer Drowned.
•Wenatchee, Wash., July 15.—Frnn'k
Keifer, who was working with Mr. Morris
on the Wenatchee ferryboat, fell overboard
and drowned. It was just about dark and
the boat was making a crossing, a man
being at each end of the boat, when Morris heard a splash and missed Keifer, who
must have stumbled and fallen into the
Lawson Ueuerons to His Crew.
Newport, R. I., July 15.—Just Iiefore

board the Independence and made Captain
IUi If, the two mates and the crew handsome presents. To Captain Haff he presented ?100O in gold; to First Mute Haff

William Cf. Madison, president and
manager of the Bodle, on Toroda creek,

Col. W. M. Ridpath says mills in Republic are failures. The ore is fit only
for smelting. The Increase of silver
with depth In the Republic has upset
calculations and has practically destroyed usefulness of the mill. Nearly
half a million has been wasted on mills.
The news that a railway will soon be
into Republic has already had a marked effect on smaller componles operating ln the camp, as well as on the larger corporations. There are Indications
that a good many undeveloped properties on which work has been suspended
will soon be on the active list again.
A. \\. Strong was at the El Caliph
mine last week and brought back some
beautiful specimens of the ore that carried streaks of free gold as wide as a
man's finger. In appearance It could
not be told from the remarkably rich
streake found tn the Morning Glory.
The entire ledge gave better assays
than ever before.
The Trade Dollar shaft Is 70 feot
deep and is to be pushed down to the
300 foot level. The ledge has averaged
four feet in width for the 29 feet that
the shaft passed diagonally through the
ledge. Some of the best ore that has
ever been found In the property has
been taken out of the shaft. The values
are said to run a little over $30 per ton.
Expectations of the recent strike of
free gold ore In the Oversight on Belcher mountain are apparently to be fulfilled. The shaft has reached a depth
of 55 feet. So far as appearances go
there is no change in tbe ore from that
taken from the shaft at a depth of 16
feet, which created so much Interest.
Many then believed that before a depth
of 50 feet had been reached the oxidised
ore would disappear, but this has
proved to be erroneous. Not only is the
ore as highly oxidized as nearer the
surface, but the values are also maintained. It is reported that the ore runs
from $15 to $26 per ton. Surface Indications point to a width of more than
100 feet.
Last week the diamond drill that has

of the Rossland mines Is the regularity

8an Francisco, July 15.—Captatn Put-
ham Uradlee Strong, who expected to
sail for Manila on the transport Grant,
has had hia transportation revoked,
and though he has telegraphed his
resignation from the regular army lt
has not yet been accepted by Secretary
Hoot, who has requested him to Bend
his resignation In the usual way by
mall, giving specific reasons for his
desire to quit the service which he
showed so much eagerness to join.'
Strong gives as reason for his resignation the necessity of looking after the
estate left by his father, but this ls
regarded here as a subterfuge.
Military men who have followed the
case carefully say his resignation by
wire came after he had vainly trlod to
get tho government to give him transportation on thn steamer Nippon Marti,
which carries Lady Francis Hope to
Hong Kong. They say he telegraphed
his resignation through fear that he
would be courtmartlaled for his open
and notorious relations with the woman, who ts better known as May
Yohe, the actress.
This theory gets strong corroboration from the fact that Major Oeneral
Young, who recently succeeded-Major
General Shafter In charge of this department, la angry over Strong's escapade, which has brought the army officer Into offensive notoriety. and\ he has
declared that Strong should be arrested and tried for conduct unbecoming
an officer and a gentleman.
Lady Hope received a local theatrical
manager and discussed a contract for
two years at $1,000 per week He wants
her to open here, but she prefers Hong

A Tnle nf Misfortune and Miser? With a
Hupi'V  Kiiillni:    Tlm World Seemed
All Very Dark for a While.
A clerk's life, ordinarily, is a very
humdrum one with but very little
variety to the daily routine. But
Mr. Fred It. Morton of No. 80 Vesper
street, Portland Me., hud an experience recently which lias made his life
now a very hupiiy one. In telling a
report cr of what he went through he
snid:    ■
"I had been suffering with stomach
trouble for about two years. Every
day about ten o'clock in the morning
md three o'clock in the afternoon I
became faint and felt so bad that if I
did nut sit down I would, fall. That
sensation usually lusted for about an
hour and when noon came I had no
appetite for lunch.
"I saw Dr. William!1 Pink Pills for
Pule People advertised in the daily
papers uUuit a year ngo and decided
to try them, I felt relief from the
lirst box and after I had taken six
boxes my disease wan cured. 1 do not
take them now but always keep them
in the house. I have told my friends
what these pills have done for me and
should I know of any one's being sick
as I was I should recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People."
Mr. Morton's statement was published in the Portland Express after
he hud sworn to it before Marshall H,
I'urriiigton, a notary public.
The most effective remedy in the
world in cases of this kind is Dr. Williams' 1'ink .Pills for Pale People.
They act directly on the blood and
nerves. This makes them invaluable
not only for stomach trouble but al.-o
for such diseases as locomotor ataxia,
partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,
sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism,
nervous headache, the after effects
of the grip, palpitation of the heart,
pale and sallow complexions and all
forms of weakness either in male or
female. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pule People arc sold by all dealers, or will lie sent postpaid on receipt
of price, fifty cents a box, or six boxes
for two dollars and fifty cents (they
are never sold in bulk or by the hundred) by addressing Dr. Williams

Elks at Spokane.
Plans for the big street fair and jubilee, which Spokane Elks are to hold ln
connection with the Spokane Interstate
Fair, are rapidly being completed. The
Elks have secured the old fruit fair
site ln the rear of the Auditorium block
and will have a large tented and enclosed apace. The main tent which has
seating capacity for 10,000 people will
contain the principal entertainment
feature—the Royal Italian Band. This
Is the recognized Royal Marine Band of
la3t year, larger and better. The Interstate Pair will run ln the day time and
the Elks will hold forth at night. Both
commence on the same date, but the
Elks continue three days after the fair
has closed.
The street fair will differ from any
other evSnt of the fair kind ever held
in Spokane. A specialty will be made
of Industrial exhibits. In connection
will be a Midway Plalsance, similar to
tho'-o that were seen at Chicago and
Omaha and Is now a prominent part of
the Pan-American Exposition. In this
Midway will be a German village, an
Algerian village, Streets of Cairo, and
Mexican village and theater. Arabs,
Turks, Mexicans and representatives of
other countries will be seen In exhibitions of their national dances, sports
and customs. This Midway will probably continue the first week of the fair

After the Midway has been abandoned, It Is proposed to hold most of
tho entertainment In the large tent.
This will be arranged hippodrome fash-
Ion with the Royal Italian Band In the
center and reserved seat section on
both sides. This will leave spa_ce for a
large ring inside the quarter poles of
the tent. Inside this ring will be held
military tournaments with both Infantry and cavalary drills, athletic sports,
rock-drilling contests and many other
things. One of the main events towards the close will be an amateur circus given entirely by the Elks.
A strong committee of business men
has taken hold of the matter of street
Illumination and they have promised
that the city will present a true carnival appearance eo far as electric lighting ingenuity and the best of artists
can make it.
Spokane Elks have just completed a
$60,000 temple and the dedication of
that will be one of the features of the
jubilee. Prominent members of the order from the east will be on hand to
assist In the dedication. No less than
200 new members will be initiated and
there will be .social sessions, parades,
banquets and a grand ball.

This is the season of tho /ear during
which tha prospectors scour oar
mountain sides, search the deep
canyons and climb tho cliffe and crags
of thc mountain peaks, seeking to
discover new veins of the precious
metals, in the hopes of wresting a
fortune from the breast of eld mother
earth. May good fortune'attend them
and watch over this army of honest,
hard-working and fearless men, who
brave more dangers and fate more
real hardships than most people
real ice and on whose efforts and
tireles? energy the whole prosperity of
the west i* indebted. Wherever a
railroad is seen crawling arounil a
mountain side or following the windings of some western river, yon may lie
sure that the prospector has biased the
way and made it possible and profitable
for the capitalist and engineer to
build the mad; when gaaing down opon
some mountain city, nestling in its
valley and shaded by the monntain
peaks, with its electric lights
prosperous businessmen and happy
homes, stop long e.notjjti to think of
and give, credit to the prospector who
has made these tilings possil-le.
The following, from the Nelson
Economist will commend itself to the
many in the Kootenays who have seen
justice parodied through the lives and
official acts of tpme of His Majesty's
servants.    Our contemporary says:
"A Government to command the
respect and confidence of the people
should see to it that its officials conduct themselves properly and not to
the scandal of tho community in which
they are located and tho Province at
large. We have no desire to make a
pointed reference to the Government's
officials in the Kootenay, but it mnst
be confessed that some of them are not
always in a condition to give proper
attention to their work. A little investigation in this respect might be
appreciated by the public at large."

Every few days we hear of some
one advocating the building of a
smelting plant at first one point in the
Slocan and then nnother. A small
custom smelting plant will not pay, as
proved by the fact that dozens are today standing idle in the States, and a
plant to be successfully operated must
first have a sufficient supply of ores of
different kinds to mako the proper
mixtures for the economical working
of them all. It mast be situated so as
to lip able to draw supplies of iron and
lime, for fluxing purposes, and coke
and coal at a minimum cost, as the
cost cf tlii'Bii materials being excessive
the charge must be added to the
smelting charges on the ores treated
To be operated successfully it must bo.
run practically continuously, aa the
starting ap or shutting down of a
smelting plant is a costly operation,
and a crew once disbanded find
scattered cannot be got together again
without considerable delay. A smelter
of say 200 tons capacity, which is far
from lieing a large plant, would require
some 70,000 tons if ore to run it for a
year, which it is doubtful if the Slocan could pupply, providing the
smelter got all the ores mined. A
smelting plant on Slocsn Lake would,
we are itfraid, not be a paying institution at the present time.

Biases of ota horse editor.
A Kootenay editor is not a fit subject
for ordinary discussion, but so little is
known of the genus by tbo wot Id at Iar<;e j
tbat perhaps a lew concentrated noius I
upon  this  float uf the population niuy '
not be without interest.
It Is difficult to classify editors—with
the rest of Kootenalans one may divide
them into tao classes, those who drink
Scotch and soda and those who drink
Scotch and appolioarls—but Kooienay
editors drink indisctimlnatoly and impartially, being satisfied if there's only
the whisky and even If the whisky gives
ont will take any other liquid except ink
or water.
Nor can Ihe editors be divided as
differing in persooal appearance from
other folk; some are smooth shaved
some have mustaches while others we«r
billy-trout whiskers. The veracity of au
editor is always a matter ol very Krave
doubt and unless he coincides with your
ideas yon are at liberty to doubt him.
Kootenay eriiUr* have n soft snap,
nothing much to do but write up stuff to
auit the ideas of peoplo whose ideas differ
about aa much as an iceberg aud a ray o'
sunshine and his life is mostly spent in
explaining to angry advertisers that he
didn't mean what they thought he meant
but something entirely different.
In one reaped Ihe Kootenay editors
have an advantage, they are never
offered fresh vegetables or stale eggs for
subaci iptions, but on the contrary are
staked in ou every desriipliop ol mine-
having only to pay tho recorder nnd
.. grub-stake the staker. Thia Is the
!    i(   ' ! f  reason which makes a Kootenay editor
look   like  the   tilled owner of an unimproved Irit.li estate.
His range ol vision is limited to tho
width ofthe clearing he lives in, but his
range of imagination U limited only to
his    knowledge   of   superlatives.     He
