Aid. McCallum brought to the attention of the council the condition of
a poor family living near the roundhouse. The mayor replied the family was being looked after.
Next the clerk wanted instructions
in dealing with ranchers bringing
wood into the city for sale. After a
family chat of half an hour or more
on the subject, it was suggested the
matter be left to the discretion of the
clerk, he to collect licenses Irem all.
Finally the clerk was so authorized
by the council.
Aid. Robertson said something
should be dene to make arrangements with the local hospital for indigent cases from the city.
J. V. Purviance, of the hospital
board, ssid no agreement had been
made between the city and the hospital.
Aid. Worden was surprised at this
news, as the old council had appointed Mayor York to arrange the matter.
Aid. McCallum thought the institution was a general hospital, as receiving aid from the government.and
so would admit any patient.
Aid. McCallum,Smith and Worden
were appointed « committee to inter
view tbe hospital board and make
suitable arrangements for city cases.

for payment of salaries fur teachers.

His worship hinted at the clerk applying to the government uj-atii fur

taxes. The clerk said he hud received no reply to his previous letter on
the sutsject. He was ordered to apply a train to the provincial secretary,
Aid. Worden was ofthe opinion, the
city could not collect taxes until all
back taxes had been paid the government. He so understood the law
on tin subject.
Aid. McCallum, on behalf of thc
school board, said the estimate* presented was based on last year'* expenses, with the exception of the increase in salaries.
The clerk answered a query to the
effect that there was$2-1.35 in the city
treasury, but there was money aow
coming in from licenses. There
would not be sufficient, however, tor
school purposes.
His worship said there was only
one course open, and that was lo
raise a loan from the bunk until the
real estate taxes could be collected.
The money raised from liquor licenses for the first six months, had
been practically wiped out by the
expenses ofthe old council,
A desultory discussion arose aa to
tlie amount of money to be raised by
the loan, winding up by Aid. MeCnl'
lum and Worden moving lo borrow
•J500 from tlu bank for three months.
His worship, on behalf of tho clerk,
brought up the question of purchasing a voucher register, the books on
hand not being 'ar„"e ctiou:-h to hold
tho necessary columns for all the accounts. Tho cost of the book would
be about $35. The clerk was instructed to write for quotations.
In the matter of dog- taxes, the
mayor pointed out that tho rates had
been collected for the first six mon Mis
by the old council and spent. Bn this
they had exceeded their rights.
Aid. McCallum thought it would be
a good scheme for the collector to col •
lect taxes for the full year 08 1302,
and refund for six months to those
who had paid. .Suggestion adopted.
Mr. McNeish addressed the council
on the subject, stating he had. seen a
similar difficulty arise on the count.
They had difficulty there in straight
cnin'g out the tangle, and he believed they would here.
On motion of Aid. Smith and

Editor Drill:
Sir,—By instructions of the lion
minister of agriculture, another dis
tribution will be made this season of
samples of tbe most productive sorts
of grain to Canadian farmers for tbe
improvement of seed. The stock for
distribution is of the very best and
has been secured by the director of
experimental farms from tho record
breaking crops recently had in the
Canadian Northwest. It will be
worth while for farmers generally to
renew their seed of oats when varieties which have produced more than
100 bushels per acre can be had. Thc
distribution of seed* this spring will
consist of samples of outs, spring
wheat, barley, field pease, Indian
eorn and potatoes. Every farmer
inav apply, but only one sample can
be sent to each applicant, bene* if an
individual receives a sample of oats
he eannot'also receive one of wheat,
barley or potatoes, and applications
for more than one sample for one
household cannot be entertained.
These samples will be sent free of
charge through thc mail.
Applications should be addressed
to the director of experimental farms
at Ottawa, and may be sent in any
time before the 15th of March, after
which the lists will be closed, so that
all the samples asked for may be sent
out in good time for sowing. Parties
writing should mention the sort or
variety they would prefer,and should
the available stock of the kind asked
tor bo exhausted, some other good
sort will be sent in its place.

There was an important change ln
the smelter situation for the Sandon
camp during the past few days. D.
Johnson, ofthe Everett smelter, hat
made contracts with the American
Boy and Last Chance properties on a
basis of $11 for freight and treatment
on ore going 20 per cent lead or less.
For ore running over 20 per cent, 20
cents a unit will be charged for each
per cent up to 40, making tho rate
for that class of ore 1515 per ton. All
ore going over 40 per cent will get
the $15 rate. A zinc penalty of 50
cents a unit will be charged on everything over 8 per cent. The settlement is on the London market quotations, less shipment deductions. Ten
per cent of the price will be held out
for 90 days to protect the smelter
from fluctuation. The American Boy
and Last Chance are already shipping on the new basis, and several
ether properties are expected to drop
into line. No settlements have yet
been received from the Trail smelter
for ore shipped since thc first of the
year, and inquiries haveonly elicited
a reply tbat the rate for freight aad
treatment has not vet been settled
for the year.
J. Roderick Iloburtaosi Killed.
The people of Kootenay generally
will learn with the deepest regret of
the death of J. Roderick Robertson,
of Nelson, general manager of the
London * B. C. Goldflelds, which
controls the Ymir, Whitewater, En
tcrprise and other mines. Mr. Robertson met his death in New York
city on Monday, having been killed
in his room in the Murray Hill hotel
by flying debris from au explosion of
dynamite. The powder was beiug
used for blasting in the Rapid Transit tunnel near by. Deceased was
one of the prominent men of the
country and did much to advance Its
mining interests. Ho wus universally respected by nil classes of tbe
riols-Uss-j Get. Aft.r Walion.
Big Mossey for Isnprovemente.
In view ot the extraordinary rapid
growth of the Canadian Northwest
in recent Tears, culminating in the
harvest of 1901, whxh yielded CO,-
000,000 bushels of grain for export,
the public will be quite prepared to
learn tkat the president ofthe C.P.R.
has asked tbe Dominion government
to approve of a resolution authorizing
the board of directors, with the sanction of the shareholders, to increase
the capital of that comrany to the
extent of $20,000,000. Tbe money is
to be used for baying new locomotives and cars, lay heavier rails, arrange in due course for the doub'e-
tracking of certain sections and provide such other improvements as
may be found necessary to cope with
tbe large increase in traffic which
has already taken place, as well as
with the still greater increase confidently looked forward to in the near
future, The amounts applied to each
of these departments is: New rolling
stock $7,000,000, double tracking
56,000,000, new works at Montreal
$1,500,000, new elevators, etc., $3,-
000,000, miscellaneous improvements
$500 000.

There is one feature of the mining
situation in the camp lhat is generally overlooked, and that is, the rapidity with which the city is liccom
ing the headquarters ""or mining
companies. Apart from the exteu
sive advertising tho place will receive from this means, there is the
immediate local benefit to bo considered, as tho operation of the mines
will necessitate offices and more Or
less of a staff. Slocan is now the
provincial headquarters for the Arlington Mines, Limited, the Ricowilabi Mining Co. operating the Speculator, the Slocan-Kilo Co.,the Viking
Mining A Development Co., the Tamarack Mining s)t Development Syndicate, and the Sloean-Republic Mining & Development Co. Later on in
the year there will be half u dozen
moro companies added to the list.

In Spokane to thn suit brought by
j Frank Watson against him, and he

Watson's claim against Fielding was
for $9700, rendered for certain ser
vices performed. In his counter action Fieluing makes somo strong
charges against Watson, alleging
that through misrepresentations on
the part of the latter he was defrauded out ot stock valued at $32,000.
Fielding, who resides in Grant's
Pass, Oregon, wus nn><*f the original
owners of the Arlingto i mine, in this

The outlook for ore shipments from
tbe local division has brightened considerably aud exports may be expected to show a respectable tonnage
from now on. For thc week 120 ton*
was sent out, tke Enterprise making
its appearance for the first time (his
year. From it 60 tons was exported,
40 tons of which were concentrates,
being the first silver product of that
kind to be shipped from the division.
It is expected the mine will continue
to ship heavily, both of etian ore snd
concentrates. The balance of the
week's output came from the Arlington, whose ore is running pretty high
in silver values. Next week ths Neepawa will figure in the shipping list.
For 1900 -the exports from this di*
vision amounted to 2-347 tons, mad*
up from 10 properties. Last year
thc exports totalled 6529 tons, from
14 properties. Following is s fall

Calmly, far more calmly, than she

words:    "Yes,"'   suid    Mr.   t'authicr,
"for nearly four yeara I suffered from
epikpsy   or   lulling fits, which took
me without warning ansl usually   in
most 'inconvenient places.   I am just
twinty--l'our years of age, and I think
I started business too young and the
fear ot failing spurred me to greater
efforts  perhaps    than    was good  for
my constitution, and the consequence
was that   I  became subject to those
attacks    which came    without    any
warning  whatsoever, having me terribly sick and weak after they    hud
passed.   I got to dread    their recur-
rs-nce very much.    1 consulted doctors
and   took   their remedies to no purpose,  the  fits   still  troubled  me.      1
saw  Dr   Williams'  I'ink Pills adver-
tisod and determined to try them.   I
did sis. and th.s undieine helped me so
much that 1 got more and kept   on
taking  them  until    today    I  am  as
well, yes better, than I ever was, and
am not troubled at all by epilejiay or
the fear of Ihe ills seizing me again.

The proneness of tbe average newspaper reporter to attribute cellnr con
flagrailona to the explosion of giis me
lers represents what appears to be au
Ineradicable race trait No amount of
contradiction nnd no accumulation of
proof that sucb an accident is an Impossibility seems to reach the news-
gatherers, wbo go on reporting tbe explosion of gas meters, doubtless because the 8reineti have a tradition tbat
meters are explosive and. give tbls ex-
olanatlon of every fire which tbey can
not otherwise account for.
Kor the reassurance of nervous peo
pie It gives us pleusure to say that no
gas meter ever exploded since the
world hegnn, and until they are made
on very different plans and contain
gns of very different.composition from

Tbe domestic gns meter bas a more
or less well deserved reputation for
habitual 'mendacity, though as likely

It; but It baa never done anything to
warrant the suspicion that It Is liable
to go off with a bang. It 1b a tin box

usually of half an Inch diameter. It
has very little copaclty for gas storage,
aud la not strong enough to carry gas
under a greater compression than, say,
half a pound per square Inch. More
than tbls would bulge Its sides. In
point nf fact the pressure of gas in
meters Is rarely more than enough to
balance a column of water two or three
incbes high.
If a gas meter Is exposed to great
beat from external ore. nothing very
serious happens. The soldered (wains

to escape. Tbls gas Is not explosive,
bowever. If becomes so only when

Should tbls admixture exist In a

great resistance, and should an ex

meter would be wrecked, but It Is
doubtful of any other damage would

If tbe seams of tbe meter are opened
by tbe melting of tbe solder or by fracture from accident tbe gas within it
would escape, and. if It bad tbe chance.

What actually hnpnens In tbe case
of fires attributed to tbe explosion of
gas meters Is usually tbls: Gas wblcb
has leaked from defective pipes or
worked Into tbe cellar from broken or
defective street mains accumulates ln
pockets formed by rafters and elsewhere and remains there until It comes
In contact wltb ao accidental fire

until tbe smoldering rubbish bursts Into flame. Tbls reaches tbe mixture of
gas and air along the celling and an
explosion follows.
The meter, naturally enough, is
thrown down and probably torn from
Its connections, aud tbe conclusion le
reached tbat Instead of being tbe victim of tbe accident, the Inoffensive meter Is tbe cause of nil the trouble and

It happened tbat under the basket wns
a root of an acanthus plant. When

but Its shoots were not able to pierce

Queer Namea the Sallora Give to Ibe
Inpalatable Kood — Dos Chowder,
By the WinsI Sou**, Topgallant Tea
and Cow Jlpper.
Some ships are known as "mean
ships" by sailors on account of the
food that Is served to the forecastle.
They are chiefly, deep water sailing
ships and trump -.learners, of couis-
what a sailor shull have to eat is provided for by law, but the law sometimes gets badly mixed up on blue water. The strange dishes served to sailors on "mean ships" are no stranger
tbau the names the sailors give them.
One of the commonest of "mean ship"
dishes is "by the wind soup." This
delicacy is composed of well polished
mutton bones, stale meat trimmings, a
handful of potato parings and scraps
from the captain's tuble. The mixture
Is boiled vigorously for two hours, ut
the end of which time the result Is hot
water of a light brown color with floating Islands of grease on its surface. A
little hardtack Is added, aud there you
have your "by the wind soup."
When a "mean ship" gets well out to
tea, one of the lirst dishes to appear Is
"dog chowder." lt Is u sort of resurrection pudding, made of-"scraps that
the cook does not dare to serve up as
they are, but which be shreds finely or
pounds In a mortar until all semblance
of their original state is lost The mass
is well mixed wit'i grease and served
Grease plays an Important part In all
the "mean ship" dishes. Another standard Item on the bill of fare of these
ships Is "topgallant tea." It is served
to the men In tbe dog watches, and the
recipe for making it is tbls: Three
times a week weak tea, made from
fresh tea leaves, l<* served. The leaves
are saved and mixed with the tea
leaves from the captain's table. Brown
sugar or molasses Is added, and from
tbe mixture Is made a decoction which
Is served four days In the week and
which the sailors coll "topgallant tea."
"Cow jippcr" Is a common dish on
all "mean ships." lt Is made by boiling beef bones for six or seven hours
with ull the senilis left over from former meals. The broth so obtained Is
well seasoned with salt and served out.
asartber dish Is "Jumping Jenny," sometimes called "double belt pie," from
the fact that the sailor has to take In
• cnuple of holes in his belt after eating It in order to stay him until the
tiPNt meal. It is the result of a week's
leavings from the cabin table mixed
with six or eight ship's biscuits and
half un onion. It Is not at all a nice
dish, nnd a sailor with epicurean tastes
always makes a row when the cook
serves It.
On some of the "western ocean"
trumps n dish Is served known to the
sailors as "hide stew," and the toughest old salt that ever was drunk on
shore or mutinous at sea Is subdued by
It to a atiite of lamblike docility, for It
Is sure to double him up with Indigestion and make bim think of the here-
afts'r. It Is made from a collection of
the skins of everything — pigs, potatoes, fowl (from the captain's table),
bacon rind and well picked chicken
legs. This Is boiled for six hours and
plenty of thick grease added.
The captain of a "mean ship" always says, of course, £iat his meu are
well fed and tbat they only growl and
grumble because they are a bad, ungrateful lot of abandoned wretches.
In proof of It be will tell you that he
gives them plum duff twice a week.
The duff he gives tbem Is known to the
sailors as "bowline duff." It is made
from the scrapings of pudding cloths
that once held the puddings consumed
In port—when tho captain gave bis men
real duff, so that they might not know
that ths*y had shipped en a "mean
ship' and muko u "pierhead Jussp" for
liberty. These scrapings are made
bulky with biscuit puste and flavored
with cloves. "Bowline duff" Is tho
least unpopular of nil the dishes on the
bill of fare of thc "mean ship," and its
actual cost is 'i ccuts for every three

This Man Was So Bad That He Was
Almost Faralyzs/d—A Wonderful
Case and a Very Happy Cure By
This Excellent Remedy.
North Tetniscamingue, Que., -Jan.
6.—(Special)—*At the Douglas Farm
near hero lives Mr. W. H. Jotanston,
who today considers himself a very
iiappy man indeed.
Th'i cause of Mr. Johnston's 'happiness is his somewhat sudds n and
very remarkable recovery from the
most 6evere case of rheutiuatism ever
seen in this county.
For a long time he auflercd with
tho rheumatism which gradually
grew worse till it threatened his life.
His principal trouole was ln his left
sid», and it was ao bad that his neck
NtiiUas-d so Uial he could scarcely
move it, and was beginning to IV*. 1
Paralysis. The pain would go away
for a time, but return with greater
force, and a strange feature of his
case was that after the pain would
leave any part, it left behind it that
prickly "pins and needles" sensation.
He thought that perhaps his smoking tobacco had something to do
with it. and he gave this up, but re-
received no benefit at all until he
used Dodd's Kidney Fills.
This remedy he found to be a complete and absolute cure for his malady, and very soon after commencing its use, the pain be*gan to leave
him and now he is strong and well.
Thai »uch an extreme case should
yield so easily and quickly provs-e
that Dodd's Kidraey Pills W 11 Cure
any case of Rheumatism.

Hercules because he's fond of his

According to Bradstreet'g financial

rtbe wise is sufficient,
Yielding to numerous pro'esta
an by the faithful from all over the
^province, the executive of the British

made a number of. alterations in its

.-date of the convention at Vancouver
till February 6th.
jk great expansion in the output of
ore in the Boundary country may be
.expected this year, as the Phoenix
