for bandpumps and liose for lire, protection, front $160 for the pumps up
to ,$6.90, and SHI per 100 feet for first
class hose. Also expressing willingness to tender for supply of water at

with the city and if money were available it would not take ion™' to decide
ilu* question of purchase. The receipts of th*- city from taxes would
only pay running expenses; therefore
it would require another bylaw to
raise money. As things were now lie
had grate doubts of the ratepayers
accepting it.
The clerk submitted the ratepayers
would object to the proposition, in
that the service was intended for the
business portion only.
■7. (5. McCallum, who was prea-eut,
addressed the council in support of
his letter. He had looks-id into ths
matter pretty thoroughly. The two
points for wells for the supply of water would be i:i front of his store and
ia front of John Bull's, the cost being
$2i each. These would guarantee an
ample supply of water; or they timid
get their supply of water from ths
fiver, but this would rsaquire 269 foet
more hose. If the largor eugine Were

Monday's train from West Virginia,
accompanied   liy  his   wife, and it  is
their intention to take up their resi-i
deuce hero.   It will Ina remembered
that Mr.  Beaedum  and  his brother,'
with an expert, visited  the camp two:
months ago aad inspected the Hoodoo
and    Howard    Fraction   properties.
Samples of the ore were taken and
then the trio went liack  to West Virginia, where a company  has been organised to operate the combined properties.
So well pleased  were  the compsay
with the reports and returns on the
ore that they at once subscribed a liberal  treasury  fund  to develop their
holdings. They desired Mr. Benedum,
as manager, to construct a wagon road j
and erect a mill to treat the large re-1
serves of second-class ore lying on the'
dumps, but this his would not consent
to, aeoming it wiser to expend thi. a
money on   the ground, and holding
the ore back as an  asset available at j
an*,* time;
The company  then  appropriated
$10,000 for the driving of a long cross-1
cut tunnel to tap the ledge, or ledges,'
at depth.   The tunnel  will be driven
on lh.'Howard   Fraction ground aud
will be 1000 feet  in length.    In  that
distance no less than   four ledges will
be cut, at a vertical d -pth approach-1
ing 700 feet.   Tbes,' ledges have been
exposed on the surface and eaoh one
proves to carry pay ore.   While portions of tli.' ore  streaks  will  stand

The annual me itiug of the Rambler
Cariboo Mining Company was held
nt Kaslo last Thursday, ll was an
enthusiastic gathering of those interested. The reports of tho secretary-
treasurer, John Daly, and Manager N.

The old board of directors were all
■•e-elected. A. F. McClalne will ba
president, J. D. Chaplin vice, .lailm
Daly secretary-treasurer, and N. E
Zwicky mauager. Considerable new
work i.s proposed and the board of
directors is to decide lo what extent
developments are to bo carried on.
Surface workings will ba carried on
rather extensively this season, nnd one
und perhaps two fine ore bodies thorough!*" exploited, Dntil this new
work iui' been laid out, it is not intended to appropriate any of the company's reserve funds to the pavm 'tit ,
of dividends. It will be the policy of |££!! ' 'K-
the directors to have a strong reserve
fund available for emergencies. Th ■

I meats were particularly pleasing, over
$50,000 worth of ore having been soul

The management of tho Spokane
Interstate Fair, which is held thin
ywu* from October o to 13, has wisely
decided to mako a far better exhibit of
th**. mining r«3SOUrces of the country
than anything that has been shown
at Spokane iu the last few years. \V.
A. Coplen, formerly of this place has
been appointed to gather anil arrange
the exhibit. Halias already been hard
at work ou tho project for several
weeks and has personally visited
many of the camps, receiving assurances that the exhibit this year will
be from ten to twenty-live times as
large and diversified as it was a year
ago. One very small corner of tin-
main exhibition room was given to
that department last year and many
people did not discover it at all. This
year the entire south side of the niaia
exhibition building will Ik. devoted to
the mining department. The fair
management, rerognizing the importance of this department of the exhibition, his agroed to*see thai the mineral exhibits are sent tothe fair without

The G. P. A. put bis head into the
general superintendent's doorway and
"Old Tyuipnn's out there again, I
see, Palmer."
"No use," replied the general superintendent. "His name enme ln two
hours ngo. I told him to report here
next time he got drunk. This finishes
Five minutes later old Tynipan, after forty years of service for the A. and
B., went tumbling down the stairs because he wns drunk at tbe Hancock
street switch the day the directors
went up the line. Palmer had glveu
hlm n puss home, eighty miles up the
road, and then tired him with ten of
tbe words Palmer wasn't accustomed
to using on ordinary jobs.
Train No. 8 pulled In while Tympan
fumbled the pnss on the platform, and
he climbed in and found a double seat
In the smoker. lie knew only tbat he
was out of u job, with a full pint in
his coat and Palmer's transportation
to take hlm up home, where he could
camp down for the winter with the
boys. He had threatened that many
times. They deserved it for letting
bim work for a living.
"Taking vacation, Tympan?" asked
Hennessy of No. 8 when he enme
through for tickets. Tympan admitted
he wus off for a bit of time up tbe
"Guess you ain't coming back right
off," tnunted Hennessy. "The return
check on your pass don't seem to be in
sight.   Long lay off, eh, Tympan!"
Tympan sat up, pulling bis hat over
his eyes.
""Dick Hennessy," he said, "you go
slow ou yer klddln' 'r I'll roast you one
o' these dnys fr bein' so smart. They've
fired me, you c'n bet—yes, they have;
fired me good, but I'm next to Palmer
yet. An' I heard what Palmer told
the G. P. A. this mornin' nbout your
runnln' over orders twice last week. I
know somethln', an' don't you kid me
no more!"
Train No. 8's conductor Ignored the
challenge, partly because he dared do
no more. He knew the whole operating department had been knocking everybody ln sight because old Tympan,
Invariably drunk and disorderly, held
his Job while better and younger and
sober men were overhauled in Palmer's
office for nothing more thnn leaving
stations half a minute iihead of orders or falling to vise the annual of
some of tho spying directors who went
up and down. H. II. Palmer got u
master tongue lashing those days from
the rank and file, and now that the
dismissal had really come Hennessy
was no more skeptical than any of the
others concerning the general superintendent's honest Intentiou of keeping
Tympnu out of service.
Hennessy tried to conciliate Tympan
on his next trip through, but tbe old
man ley with bis hat siver his fuce,
steaming with rage, too angry even to
curse. No. 8 was making beautiful
work, and Hennessy felt better thnn
usual. He bad eight cars with a hig
load of women nnd kids and wanted to
be on time anyway because lt was his
Iny off that Saturday ami there was an
all night game in the "club" at home.
At Inchburg Hennessy got bis usun)
orders, everything all straight, and left
on time. Therenr braUeinan found hiin
just afterward and said:
"Hear about the wild freight went
np ahead of us? She's a big one, and
lt wouldn't surprise me If she got
stuck on the Long Misery and held us
at Lyshon."
Hennessy know his man was right.
Lyshon station ls at tlie foot of n
thirteen mile grade known for good
reasons as "the Long Misery." If u
freight got hung there ahead of No. 8,
lt meant everything balled op, for the
A. nud H. is a single line, and the directors won't stand for n Killing between Lyshon and Oldtown, the station at the crest of the Long Misery.
Hennessy took tbe plat forin ut Lyshon before No. S's brakes held her and
sought the dispatcher ln the dingy station.
"Wild freight?" echoed the telegrapher. "Yes, weht up au hour ngo. Ulg
train? Yes, big train, but she's got u
good rail, and 1 don't believe she'll
hold you a minute."
Hennessy went out and looked In the
book by the statlmi door. He fouud
where the wild freight had reported
and saw with satisfaction that she was
In charge of Bitters, one of the ring

heavy train out of the way long before

Lyshon was on the card for only

trifling delay and went buck to the operator:
"Can't you nsk Oldtown, jusl for a

Wild freight.
"Better wait for unother report from
Oldtowu," said the operator. But
Hennessy was six minutes late then
and resolved to go on up the grade.
He signaled bis engineer and jumped
on the rear. The brakeman was there
and grinned when the conductor cursed
bis luck.
Hennessy, half way through the
door, wheeled. There, away bnck by
the station platform, only a fading bit
of dismal detail iu the familiar view,
was old Tympan standing in the middle of the track and waving crossed
"Left and signaling us to come buck
for blm," said the rear brakeman.
Hennessy spoke eloquently, looking
at Ids watch. The time frightened
him. "I'll not go back for bim," he
cried.   "I cau't be"—
There wns thut lu the reur brake-
man's eyes whieh stopped Hennessy.
Suppose he should leave Tympan at
LyBbon over Sunday, witli no trains
either way, nnd suppose the old man's
pull with B. II. P. were still working,
and suppose tbe young husband of her
who was Nell Tynipan, ho who worked
In the G. P. A.'s otlice, should—
And there was old Tynipan himself
standing In the middle of the track
and signaling, "Back up, back up,
back up." Could he afford to ignore
tlie old fellow? Though It hurt him to
do it, ho said:
"No. 1 beliove I'll go back for the
old guy. Bill."
The rear brakeman pulled the cord,
nnd Hennessy went ln to reckon just
how much over thirty minutes late
he would be into Oldtown.
There was no denying tbnt old Tympan was exceeding drunk. Hennessy
smothered his wrath with difficulty as
No. 8 backed Into Lyshon, for he
hndn't relished what he bad heard going through thc duy couches. He leaned
out toward the .dirty figure reeling
ueross the plutform and beard Tym-
pan's idiotic laugh as he boasted of
having called back the biggest train
on the road. "I jus' went out there—
rl' out there—and signaled, 'Buck up,'
and yer backed up, didn' yer? I tell
yer. gents, there ain't er mnn o' the
ro'd darst ter dis-dlsobey my orders."
There was a scramble on the platform behind them, and the dispatcher
can.is shrieking like n plow train at a
blind crossing.
"Back up, Hennessy. for all you're
worth:" he shouted. "Runaway freight
—thirty something enrs off the wild
train coming down the grade—be here
In less than a minute. Oldtown wired.
Oh, Hennessy, look up the line!"
It was n cloud of snnsl uml dust at
the lirst curve in the Long Misery,
three miles nway.
Hennessy's knees wavered. The dispatcher struck him with his list between the shoulders, crying: "Quick,
mun! Kim her buck Into the siding und
let the freight go by."
The passengers knew only enough
to complain that they were horribly
shaken up that afternoon near Lyshon.
It was Hennessy himself who switched
No. 8 into tbe silling and who thanked
heaven with all sincerity that it was
Just long enough to take his trnln nnd
leave the uiuin line open. As he threw
the switch his head went dizzy wltb
the whirl of the freight. When the
threatening thlrty-thri*e banged past,
Hennessy gnve not one look nfter, but
fainted over the lever nnd hung like
a uniformed scarecrow until they gathered hlm up.

"Art eyelashes" are    tho lutcst invention of u hair specialist in Great

Before noon yesterday, six ladies

hud long silken eyelashes.

"On our customer's first visit,"
said thc manager, "we fix the skin
on the eyelid with the fluid, and the
false lashes mix with the lashes of
the lady. It is beautiful—beautiful!"
The lashes last 10 days, usually,

The manager declared that the 2s.
Gd, pairs were proof against even a
prolonged fit of hysterics, but he admitted, of course, that ho bad no direct evidence to that effect.
The theatrical lashes arc black and
very long, and made of coarser material. The huirs are of vegotahli*

be curled with tlie tongs when they
become aggressively downcast.

who knew everything about the rougb
bush life, says a writer ln World's
Work. In time we reached a bend ln
the stream where a lot of small logs
hud Jammed during the spring freshet.
My comrade unconcernedly ventured
upou tbe logs, and before I could follow by some mischance he stepped
upon a loose one and Instantly disappeared. Had I not been looking at blm
It is likely I should have Imagined he
had crossed and gone Into the brush
upon the farther Bide. One log of all
the mass was rolling, and a band showed at one side of lt. To dart across and
seize the bund occupied very few seconds, but to uiy horror I could not pull
him up through tbe narrow space
through which ho bad slipped. To set
a foot upon the log either side the opening und shove with ull strength was the
only hope. For seconds 1 clung to tbe
wrist und strulned mightily. Slowly
the logs separated and up he came till
he was able to twist upon his stomach
across a log. Hulf drowned as he was,
he had not lost his nerve. "Dodon't
let 'em squeeze buck on me!" be gasped, und a moment later he was ou bis
feet. Most men would have weakened
then, but be was Iron. He bad swallowed a lot of Water, had been cheek
by jowl wltb an nwful death, yet he
had no Idea of proving false. The logs
were slowly slipping further apart and
I was standing like u certain large gen
tleinan of Uhodes and unable to stand
I much more spreading or to spring to
either side, while, of course, to slip
j Into the water meant to enter the trap

be seized my bund and one quick haul
| carried me to firm footing. The logs
at once closed like n gigantic trap.
, When we reached solid ground my coin-
rade almost collapsed, and for half an
, hour he was n very sick man. Later

The Danish classification of rank ls
a very elaborate one, built up of offices, orders, birth und titles, writes J.
Broebner in "Danish I,lfo In Town and
Country." There ure nine classes,
which are divided luto us many u* a
dn/.i'ii subsections, each of which may
again comprise u score or two of different titles and offices, yet there was a
coiuphilut In one of tbe Danish papers
the other day that it was anything but
Holders of titles have to pay an annual tnx ranging from $44.50 In tbe
first class to a miserly $3.33 iu the
ninth. There are ubout a score of different titles, several of which are again
divided Into "real" and "others," the
"real" being several shades belter thau
the "others."
These titles are always used In conversation, as, for example, "Will not
the chamberlain have a cigar?" or
"Mr. Chamberlain, will you not have
a cigar'.*' And It requires a fairly
clear head and a good memory to give
everybody his due In a large party,
especially as some of them ure decorously long, as, for Instance, gehelme-
Then there are ladles, who generally
huve "Inde" (the English "ess"i ndded
to their husbands' title or ollice.    A
colonel's  wife,  for  Instance,   Is culled
oberstlnde, and the wife of the chamberlain to the king kamnierherrelude,
and so forth.
[    But the subtleties of the additional
: titular address in writiug even excel
( the verbal form.   That persons of the
; lirst  rank  are  "excellencies"  is  only
| natural, but gentlemen of the second
class bave ou documents addressed to
I them a "high well born" prefixed to
j their title and name, and those of ihe
third class fl "high and well horn."    I
much regi  . that I cannot explain why
the   addition   of   this   "and''   should
somewhat detract from  the value of
tbe same words.
Gentlemen of the ninth class are addressed as "well honorable and well
bred," which Is, I tblnk, almost more
than they could expect for tbelr $3.33.

The strangest of the underground
worlds In France which I visited was
one devotixl to the raising of mushrooms. Its limits seemed unbounded,
as Indeed they were, for lt pierced the
hillsides in every direction. We entered
through an opening under nn orchard
of cherry trees. During "harvest time''
a crop ls gathered every twenty-four
hours. Three men, with their great
baskets, make tbo rounds of this underground farm every morning, and every
dny ln the year can count on an immense crop, which they sblp to the
large cities near by and even several
miles awoy. The discolored and Inferior mushrooms are sent to the canneries,
but for his best growth the producer
receives only 20 cents a pound.—Scrlb-

money on table in us many months. He
Invented, or his cook Invented for hlm,
a dish which lie designated "the Shield
of Minerva." One of Its principal Ingredients was flamingoes' tongues, of
which both Pliny anil Martini speak in
encomiastic terms. I lumpier says that
tho flamingoes have "large tontines,
and near the root Is a piece ef fat
which Is accounted a great dainty."

The Slater Shoe trademark is practically a quarter million
dollar guarantee behind every pair of " Slater Shoes,"
—because measured in cold commercial parlance that is the
value of the modest little mark by which ** Slater Shoes " ere
The Slater Shoe makers have the sole and exclusive right
to use any combination of words containing the word "Slater"
as applied to shoes and this right is duly set forth in imposing
looking legal documents with large red seals and much
vermillion tape,
—but the exact wording to be found on a genuine " Slater
Shoe" are the three words "The Slater Shoe" in a slate frame-
no initials, no other words, no marks of any kind.
This particular and precise form of words is rigidly adhered
to by the makers of the genuine " Slater Shoe " to enable the
wearer to easily identify the real i' Slater," though the makers
have the exclusive right to use the word "Slater" with or
without other words.
And to you that identification mark " The Slater Shoe,"
has a protective value which no other shoe without these precise
words can have,—
—because behind it is the commercial value of a trademark
worth $250,000.00 in cold cash.
—and be it remembered that the value of a trademark is
measured exactly by its ability to command trade,
—'because no matter how popular a trademark may be or
how skilfully or largely it may be advertised
—'it could be robbed of its value in one short season by
inferior goods made and sold under it,
—'and do you think the " Slater Shoe " makers who have
for so many years been building up this valuable trademark
would entertain any threc-cent-saving proposition to skimp the
unseen vitals of a shoe in which so valuable an asset as a quarter
million dollar trademark is wrapped up ?
Not likely is it ?

Made in Canada 40 years.
For men $4.00 and $5.50.
