i.ix'ni Bchoel Board Progressing Towards
Free Text Books.
An advanced and thoroughly up-to-
date movement has jusl been inaugurated by the board of trustees for the
local public school, being alopg the
I'm of providing free text book-, for
the various pupils seeking tuition. It
i felt that some children are debarred
from regular attendance at the school,
owing to the difficulty experienced by
the parents in providing funds for the
purchase of the necessary books.
Moreover, manv pupils are prevented
by the self-same reason from furthering their education as far as desirable.
To parents of large families the annual expenditure on school supplies
fsir their children is necessarily targe,
and where the head of the family has
to depend on his daily wags* for sus-
U nance, the burden of educating his
progeny becomes heavy.
The local trustees realize the truth
of the foregoing and are determined
to lesseu the burdens of tlie parents.
At a meeting of tin* board held last
week, a sum of money was placed in
the estimates to purchase a supply of
text, copy, scribbling books, etc.. which
are to lie placed under the care of the
teachers, The supplies will be pur-
ckased at wholesaleprioes and will bs>
sold at the same figun a to the children, thus resulting iu quite a saving
in the aggregate, The trustees are
"■•'livnu'-'d the idea will be readily accepted by the parents and will prove
■ great success. Ware the finances of
the city in a stronger, position, the
text books would be provided free of
ill] charge to the pupils. The state
compels children to go to school and
it should, to In* consistent, provide
fr-'.* books.
Many of the cities in Canada are
following out the same idea, particularly   i:i   Victoria,   ln   Toronto fret

The .'ine troubles have been settled
and   shipments   are going forward in
11 mill so ubs*. Figure! Olitasnssl   un Car of
No. 1 Grstil* Ore.
ThsTe is much jubilation at the Ottawa this week over the returns re-
ceived from the Trail smelter on the
J.Vfci, ear of No. 1 giT.de ore sent out
two weeks ago. The returns were 560
oz in silver per ton, giving a gross
value for the shipment of Sr>f'i-i, with
silver at 17 ctiits. After the usual
ds-iluetions for freight, ti-eatmeut, and
moi^tHrsvtlifTeis a net value of $18(KI
for the owners. These returns ave by
far the handsomest t.i be received in
the .camp in a long time aud they are
received generally with every feeling
of satisfaction, demonstrating as thoy
do the exceeding richness of the dry
ore properties of the camp.
The Ottawa is shipping steadily at
the rate of a carload each week, but it-
is not ail of such high grade "jhoractfer.
it is expected, however, to shortly
send on! another ear of lliis rich stuff.
At pre-cut 16 men are employs-dat
the mine, mainly in the stopes at No.
8 tunnel. No. i tunnel is now in HiO
feet and will soon catch the lead. A
•-haft has been started on the lead 250
feet south of the No. 8 drift and is
down 10 feet, sinking in a fine 'chute
of ore. Some time ago an assay mude
on some surface rock, which had a
badly burned-up appearance, gave the
surprising assay of 1400 oz. and au
average of two feet of it gave 286 oz.
The Ottawa is regarded as the most
promising property on Springer creek.

Mining Isiltssistl.iH liuprovliBR-.
Two weeks ago it was noted in tlie.*e
columns thai then' was a healthier
feeling prevailing in mining circles,
and of late it has been very much improved. It is due to the stronger tone
of the metal market. Lead prices are
better, copper is advancing, rino has
gone up with a bound, nnd silver is
gradually improving. In fact,so much
BO that the smelters now make it optional for shippers to realize at once
on their ore or wait the usual three
months, which is a goixl sign. The
enstsims trouble over zinc hits been •
settled and there is now nothing to
interfere with shipments to Kansas,
where the ore Is In demand. Financial circles believe the chief silver
countries are arranging a basis upon
which to give the  white metal a sian
dord and permanent pries', which i.-*
just what the mine-; require, ft would
'end speculation and give stability to
the industry. The recent big strike
on the Payne has also nut more heart
into  the operators.   The  outlook  is
much better. aawmaawsm

It was the big doctor who found ber,
misshapen ami suffering, lu ber father's gloomy shop. In spite of Its
noise nuil dust, Jiuuy preferred the
shop to tbe tiny buck room, because
the customers spoke kindly to ber ninl
made her forget the ache In ber back.
When they gnve her candy enough to
start a make believe shop on the narrow Window ledge, she sold It for pins
to tbe children In the dingy court, just
becnuse she loved to watch these
straight limbed, bright eyed children
caper nbout as sbe knew she never
When the big doctor brought her to
the hospital, he said to Nurse Powell:
"I'll leave Jinny uniler your Special
care. Miss Powell. I am greatly Interested in her case, The expense is being met by one perfectly able to slu it,
and she Is to Want for nothing."
And thus were the gates of an earthly paradise opened to Tinny of Borden's
Caourt. First there was the cunning little room, all her own, with pictures on
the wall, nud the whitest of Iron beds
with shiny knobs on each corner, ami
a bright red wrapper, woolly and soft,
with knit slippers to match. Theu
came the pretty young Indies of the
Flower mission with thsir nodding
blossoms and occasional glasses of
quivering Jelly. Sometimes tbe big doctor's nieces brought their dolls and
spent nn hour at Jinny's bedside, nnd
happy Jinuy was permitted to bold as
long as she liked the marvelous Flor-
ette, who could walk and talk like a
real baby and whose dresses really and
truly enme from Paris.
But ln Jlnuy's mlud all theso things
faded Into Insignificance when compared with the big doctor and Nurse
Powell. These two formed a j^.int divinity before which Jinny burns>d lhe
sweet Incense of childish devotion.
Norse Powell had obeyed tbe physician's generous Instructions to tbe letter—at first from a sense of duty and
later becnuse she learned to love tbe
patient little sufferer.
And tbe big doctor? Even Nurse Powell, wbo knew bis deep interest in his
work, wondered at the attention he lavished on this denizen of the slums. Often when his rounds In tbe hospital
were over and he had time to spare he
would come bnck to Jinny's room for a
chat, and Jinny, her grent black eyes
aet ln a face of ivory whiteness, would
smile happily from one to the other, the
big doctor who ordered medicine that
eased the pain In her back and the
nurse whose gentle band could smooth
away wrinkles ln her forehead when
the pain was at Its worst.
Sometimes when tbey sat thus Jinny
was vaguely conscious that tbe big doctor was talking to her, but looking at
Nurse Powell. Put Jinny did uot know
how, years before, when the big doctor,
fresh from the medical school, had beeu
house physician in the city hospital, he
had met a sweet faced "probe" doing
her first night duty in his ward. The
head nurse bad looked scornfully at the
slender figure nnd the trembling hands.
but the young bouse physician had
said: "Give her time. She'll get her
bearings after a bit."
Nurse Powell had been grateful for
bis cheerful encouragement and the
many kindnesses which lightened her
burden during that tirst awful year in
tbe big wards, but when he nsked for
■something more than gratitude she
could not give lt. Now head of thc
nurses' staff at a sanitarium, sbe sometimes grew a-weary and wished she
hnd learus?d to love the big doctor whose
brown eyes seemed still to follow her at
her duties. Then ber heart would sny:
"No, no! His work would always eome
first, nnd I wouhl be second. Besides,
1 wonder If be has a heart! When I
see him undertaking those horrible operations witbout tu« quiver of nn eyelash, I think be has no feeling."
And so this nurse, who could unflinchingly assist at the same operations
waited Inconsistently for love to come
into her life, a love that would be nil
tenderness nnd thouglufulncss, a thing
apart from the scenes of suffering in
which she uioved.
It wns one afternoon when Jinny had
been almost a year at the bospltaL lu
the morning tlu* big doctor had said:
"I've changed tbe medicine ugain. Miss
Powell. I don't like that rise in temperature. If you note a tendency toward
coma during tbe afternoon, send for me
et once."
But Nurse Powell did not have to
•end for him. He came of his owu ac-
srorii just as tbe afternoon drew to a
close. Jinuy bad been sleeping rest-
lessly, and wben she opened ber eyes
with an expression of weariness that
bad not been there since sbe came to
tbe bospltnl tbe big doctor aud Nurse
Powell were sitting on either side of
ber little bed. At the foot lay a gayly
Illustrated copy of Mother Gooses
rhymes, which Nurse I'owell bad been
reading nloud before kindly sleep came
to the small sufferer. Now Jinny
pointed to it with n wan smile.
"I've bad tbe funulest dream! I
went to Mother Gsxsse's land. way. way
off. an' sbe was such a funny ole woman, an' she was right glad to .see me!
An' she says, 'Llttl» girl, would you

out the puniest dress, purtier thnn my

when I see tbe little stick nil tied with

broomstick, an' we'll he dowu there In
a Jiffy.' An' here I am, an' I'm glad,
fur the bed feels so cuuify, an', sure
enough, my big doctor ls bere."
The great black eys's glowed wondrous bright ns they met the big doctor's gaze, and he spoke very gently
while he stroked ber baud, uow thin
and transparent.
"Does your back ache after your long
ride on the broomstick. Jinny':''
"Oh. no! The ache's nil gone. There
ain't been any ache all dny."
The big doctor looked ncrsiss the bed
at Nurse Powell, but she was gazing
steadily through the upi-n window. And
something bright uud clear, like diamonds, shone on her long lushes.
A weak, piping voice raised ngnln,
"Ni'. I ain't achiu' any place today,
only I'm dreadful tired. An' every
onsv in awhile you an' Nurse I'sbws'II
go aslippin' an' a Slipplu' away from
me, an' theu 1 feel Iii..- 1 was a slippin'
too. 1 wlsht Nurse Powell would sing.
Then p'haps I'd go to sleep again."
Nurse Powell's iiuivering lips tiled
to form tbe notes of thi' nursery song
Jinny loved beat, but something rose
In her throat aud cbokt*d tin* melody.
'1 wisbt—you'd atog—that—sleepy
The tired voice trailed off Into silence, but not before tbe heavy eyes
were raised appeallngly to those of the
white capped nurse.

an expression of Infinite peace
lu that distant ward men who had
been battling with death turned their
faces toward tiie sinking sun and felt
that even nniid pain it was good Just
to live, and iu Jinny's little room all
was silent. Nurse Powell was kneeling beside the bed, her face hidden In
the pillow. The little hand she still
held was strangely limp and pulseless.
Then a strong arm raised ber to her
feet, aud she looked straight into the
soft brown eyes that had followed her
all these years patiently, steadfastly.
Later, wheu she raised her head, she
turned from him to the quiet figure ou
the cot.
"1 almost wish she knew—she loved
us both  so ws'll."
And the big doctor whispered gently, "1 think she did know, even before you did."

There are numerous reliable Btat»-
ments of grizzly bonis having attacked
men. but nowadays the grizzly does
not Seek out his human victims, ns
there are credible statements that his
forefathers used to do. Neither does
he lie in wait and. pouncing upon n
hunter, tear bim iulo bloody shreds iu
delighted tiendislmess, us the ohl time
stories used to tell. The change iu
the grizzly's disposition Is likened by
veteran hunters to the change In the
character of the while cousin of the
grizzly, the polar bear of the arctics.
When the stations for the Hudson's
Bay company were established, the
diaries of the men there often referred
to the fright of ntlaek by polar bears.
Many a navigator in tlie arctic si as bas
been clawed and shewed to death by
polar bean. But for nearly a century
the polar bear has uot beeu regarded
as so very fierce, and nowadays it Is
looked upon as n cowardly beast. Association with armed men has mosli-
Ged the polar bear's disposition.—Outing.

Oil in leather makes cold mitts or gloves, ber-ause oil is a
"good conductor" of cold. That's why Indian tanned buckskin is warmer than common oil tanned leathers.
But buckskin is porou.i, and lets in the wind and absoths
wet. Now "PihtO Shell" Cordovan is tanned without oil or
minerals, and it is absolutely wind, water, boil, scorch and
cold proof-it is the toughest glove end mitt leather tanned.
It can be had only in H.B.K. mitts and gloves.
