I ance of Mr. Jennings presenceJ'Hn-
I der the engine, aud stepping into
I his accustomed seat started the lo-
I comotive in motion down the track.
I The unfortunate Jenning, realizing
1 bis perilous position, immediately
I grabbed a bar and~ysied for dear
I life. He was thus dragged fully
too feet before the engine was stop-
t.ped. Barring a few bruises on the
I legs  he escaped   without   injury.
■ The escape was miraculous.
I Mr. Tannings, we are told, in the
i Soudan in 1885, had a-spear run
I through bis head, and was left on
I the field for dead. He was then a
I British soldier. At another time
I the wheels of a heavy cannon pass-
I ed over his feet and lower limbs,
I putting them badly out of shape,
■ but he still walks without much
■difficulty. He has been shot and
■cut several times, his body being
■covered with wounds. That is why
■his fellow workmen say he carries
■carries a charmed life. It seems
■that even a locomotive cannot kill
I him. He also suffered from sunstroke while in the Soudan, which
■has left him partially deaf,  otherwise he is none the worse for wear.
■We are glad to chronicle Mr. Jen-
Knings' last escape.

crude petroleum or with petroleum

impermeable to moisture and does
not absorb it even after being left
in water; it does not dry to a powder like common peat, and its heat-
giving value is almost equal to that
of coal.

Greenwood Electric-«L/fght Company. His holdings in the former I
were one-quarter of the stock of the
company, capitalized at $100,000 iu
dollar shares. In the electric-light
company he held 16,000 shares,
each at the par value of a dollar.
The electric company serves both
Phoenix and Greenwood, and has
been in operation for nearly a year,
iwith   handsome   results.      In the
coming spring, operations will start
on the tramway scheme to connect
Greenwood with   Phoenix.     Mr.
j Anthony J. McMillan, the Rossland
\ operator, is on his way to England
1 to place the  bonds of his company
there.    Both the enterprises have a
I promising future,    especially    the
tramway, which will be built mainly for  hauling ore   from  Phoenix
and Wellington camps to the Greenwood and Boundary smelters.
