This week's ore shipments from tho
division have been satisfactory, two
carloads having l.eeti sent out. The
Enterprise, which .has got down to
Bteady .shipments, sent out its usual
'21) tons to Trail. From the same
creek the Neepawa shipped '20 tons to
th" Nel .11'. smelter. Next woek the
Ottawa will have a car to go forward,
to lie followed by regular shipments
when the wagoi) road is completed.
To these high grade exports must be
added the values from the clean-ups
at the Chapleau, which f-am now on
promise to be regular. The output
of the camp for the year will be in excess of last year's figure.* and the value
will be greater.
For  I90.'l the ore shipments from
the local division amounted to 1889

For Benefit
Of Both
Coptiright, 190S, by T. C. McClure,
On the first night but ono of their
mutual vacation they sat on the porch
of an ocean hotel and watched the sea
climb over the sands nt their feet. The
laat of the other loiterers had exchanged the view for the delights of
dressing gowns and slippers some ten
minutes before, leaving to them the
wide veranda and an argument begun
an hour earlier. A mile away a small
steamer forged onward. Its trail of
Binoke lay drowsily on the water like a
blnck monster stretching itself for a
long rest.
"It's ridiculous!" he remarked, staring reflectively at the lighted tip of a
fresh cigar.
"Well," she replied, "we find it true
of writers. Nearly every novel is a
multiple picture of the novelist. Why
should we expect n player to portray
emotions he or she hns never felt?"
"You would make it necessary for
all 'heavies' to be former criinlnnls
nnd all comedians fearful fools. Your
Cleopatra must needs hnve been a
wanton, your I>ndy Macbeth must
have planned murder, nnd your Mrs.
Mnlnprop could not be nt once nn educated and a successful woman."
"That ls a trifle radical," she urged.
And as heT opponent did not seem to
feel that she hnd recovered her lost
ground she added, "I mean merely
thnt the able Impersonator must at
some time or other have been conscious of the sentiments which produced"—
"I understand," he interrupted.
"Well?" said she.
"Well," came the reply, "you and I
played love'rs all Inst season—rather
acceptably, we both think. And yet I
have never been in love. Have you?"
"No," she answered thoughtfully; "I
have not."
"Yet we seem to get along."
"Yes," she admitted. A mnn nnd a
woman somewhere on the beach were
ainging an absurd song, nnd the breeze
"hold on!" m said,    "i'll bi a subject."
brought the words to their ears. She
paused an instant to listen. Finally
the continued: "Neither of us has dono
■o well that tbere ls no room for improvement. Often I huve had to guesB
in the vaguest way at some sentimental passage, and many of them may
have been spoken iu a fashion that
lacked tho true ring. All this might be
remedied if I had ever been in love."
"Why don't you experiment?" tht
mnn queried fnu.-tiously.
"Because I have uo one with whom
to experiment. I couldn't very well
full in love with myself."
"It hns been done."
The girl laughed and rose to go. A
chill had come Into the uir, and tho
porch wus no longer comfortable.
"Hold on!" be said. "I'll be a subject."
She had forgotten already. "A subject for what?"
"I'll bo a subject for your expert*
ment. You nmy be rl^lit nfter nil, and
If you nre we owe It to the manage-
nii-iit to test your theory.-'
She blushed—a fulnt, puzzled blush.
"Oh, neither of us will be in earnest,"
he hastened (o add. "We will tuke up
the uffiilr as a course of study. You
and I can adore eueh other for two
months. It will help to pass the time
here, nnd nt the end of our vacation we
can drop lt.   What do you say?"
"I don't exactly like It," the theorist
confessed. And she took hold of the
"Nonsense!"  quoth the  man.    "You
must have the strength or your convictions. Let's test the thing for tin- benefit of both." He took her huiiil in tlie
enthusiasm of the moment.
"All right," she snld.
"Ooodl   We'll begin by going boating
"Perhaps," she remnrked quietly and
walked Into thc hotel.

Through July nnd into August the
lessons continued. He took her driving, sailing, walking along the strand.
She began to feel quite ns though they
were in earnest and grew a liule jealous of the friend to whom he devoted
nn hour a dny and two quires of paper
n week. The other people gossiped, ns
people will who have nothing better to
do, nnd they laughed at the gossip. At
last he pulled her out of the surf one
afternoon when she had been caught by
the undertow. "We nre progressing
finely," he observed.
Lato in the month:
"The season begins soon," said he.
"Our time is all but gone."
"We have spent it well," she- replied. "Think how our work will have
been Improved."
It was a delightful summer.
Aud on the last night but one of
their mutual vacation he nnd she sat
together on the porch as they had
seventy days before nnd watched the
tide climb vigorously ns of old, for
the sen is a restlessly ambitious monster and will not tire until it hns won
the earth back again. "We return tomorrow," the man sighed.
"Tomorrow," said tho girl. "I had
never been really bappy before."
"I have had n jolly time," he admitted.
"And It ends tomorrow."
She paused, scanning the horizon
for the steamer, which was long overdue. But there was no motion anywhere except nt the ragged meeting
plnce of sky and sen.
"We shall be going on tho rond
again," the man remarked, "to stuffy
thetiters and crowds of people who
recognize tragedy only when it is accompanied by slow music."
"We shall be ln the same cast," said
tlie girl.
And then, as he leaned against his
chair and took to puffing placidly, she
rose to go.
"Hold on," quoth he. "I want to tell
you something."
She waited.
"When I get back," he went on, hnlf
Jokingly—"when I get back I nm to bo
married. She's a charming little thing,
and you must know her."
The girl was looking out to sea,
though nil chance of the steamer passing had vanished. "But you said"—
she began hesitatingly.
"That I had never boen in love." He
laughed. "That was not quite true.
I'm afraid the lessons have been wasted.   I did not need thorn."
She opened tho door.
"Not wasted," she said. "I have
learned something."
The Mexican BnllBcht,
"A Mexican bullfight is the most scientific exhibition on earth," said n returned American. "It is a sport which
Is almost universally condemned in
this country, but I believe that it is no
more objectionable than our game of
football and, in fact, no more than
baseball or horse racing. To be sure,
the bulls are killed, but they are not
tortured to any extent. The bullfighter
must have consummate skill, together
with great nerve and daring. He must
await the charge of the bull without
flinching and nt exactly the right moment insert his,sword in exactly the
right spot, nnd the huge animal falls
at his feet dead. Occasionally a bull-
lighter is killed, but how often is that
true of football players and even baseball players and jockeys in this country', "he Mexicans would not think of
allowing a football game to be played
In their country. They think lt ls barbarous and cruel. I'or my part I do
not see but they have the best of the
argument, for from the standpoint of
nn exhibition of skill and daring there
Is nothing which can equal a bullfight." -Milwaukee Wisconsin.
No Fare  For a Doll I'nder Three.
True kindness does not abound in
nny particular place. A conductor on
a Bidgc avenue car the other day gave
nn example of how the ordinary thingr
of life may be made attractive by tlie
presence of a little kindliness. The
cur stopped nnd a little girl currying a
large doll got on. Thc conductor came
la to collect her fare. The little girl,
who was ubout six years old, handed
him n nickel, lie looked nt it nnd then
at her, but didn't register the fare. Her
expression was that of perplexity. The
conductor then leaned down nnd nsked
her fur the doll's fare. That request
mnde the littlo girl's perplexity even
greater. But the conductor quickly
nsked her whether the doll wasn't over
three years old, nnd to her negative reply he snld, "Oh, I thought she was,
and I was waiting for her fare." Then
ho smilingly pulled tho register Rtrap,
and thc other passengers who had witnessed the occurrence somehow or other felt better for this little touch of
whimsical comedy.—Philadelphia itec-

"Father, what Is a sparrow?" nsked
little Emerson Beans, looking up for nn
Instant from n volume of Thoreau.
"Why, n sparrow," responded he, "is
one of those little birds that you see"—
Little Emerson listened with a puz-
tied expression.
The old gentleman tried another tack:
"It Is what Is known as '1'asser domes*
thus' "—
Little Emerson began to understand.
"Ofthe family 'fringlllldie.'"
"Oh, of course.    I recognize the term
now. HOW stupid of ine!   There Is only
one possible objection to Thoreau," he
continued, "and that is ba uses such

So much attention has been directed
to the work that Is being done in reclaiming the arid and scuihirid lands of
the west that the reclamation work
along the Atlantic coast is -almost entirely overlooked. The familiar sand
dunes, characteristic of the coast from
Cope Cod to Cape Fear, while perhaps
artistic, constitute n menace to adjacent cultivated lands and ure useless
in themselves. Massachusetts, nt considerable expense, has been endeavoring to reclaim the sand dunes that
form so large a part of the "Province
lands" on Cape Cod.
It has been found that sand Is readily bound together by grass roots, and
thnt if sturdy varieties of grass, suitable for sandy soils, nre planted and
cared for while obtaining a foothold
and maturing they will gradually cover
large areas, transforming them from
shifting, worthless lands into veritable
fertile cultivable fields. Many years of
forestry work in Europe bavo shown
that after the grasses have made a
start trees can be successfully raised
on these erstwhile sand piles, which
may thus be made to yield a revenue.
Some of the most extensive and mobile
sand dunes in the United Stntes, however, nre found In the west, nnd It is
the nmbitlon of the bureau of forestry
to cover these with permanent forest |
growths. Along the Columbia river in
Washington the sand is very light,
owing to the large proportion of mica |
lt contains, nnd consequently is easily
blown about by tho winds.
In a part of the lower Columbia river valley great orchards have been
actually ingulfed with the shifting
sands, and tho railroads have experienced great difficulty in maintaining
their tracks in this district iu passable
condition. In order to make a practical
test as to the best method of treating
these dunes, a strip of land on the Columbia river between Willow creek
nnd the John Day river has been set
aside by the government for extensive
experiments, bnsed on the work dono
in Massachusetts, referred to above.
In the enst tree planting plans for
owners of sandy tracts nre being prepared, thus extending the scope of tho
practical co-operation begun by the bureau of forestry.—Philadelphia Record.
A  Future   Mlknilo.
Perhaps the most interesting small
boy in tho world is littlo Prince Micehl,
grnndson of the Japanese mikado and
destined himself to be a mikado somo
day. He will be four years old in April.
The hoir presumptive to thc great
eastern throne has the distinction of
being the first baby of the royal house
of Jimmu Tenno who has been allowed
to grow his hair like an English baby.
Both his father and the mikado when
babies had their heads shaved dally by
their nurses.
Soon after the prince's birth measures were taken to eliminate the "almond eye" of his race. A painless littlo
surgical operation was performed. An
incision was made on the outer point of
tho baby's eyelids in n straight line
for tho barest part of nn inch. The
lashes wero then drawn into shape and
held firmly by n piece of chemically
prepared sticking plaster.
Tho wound healed in less than a
week, and the effect now i.s that I'rince
Micchi does not look his oriental birth.
The Slmplon Tunnel.
The Slmplou tunnel, one of the greatest engineering works in the world, Is
rapidly approaching completion. Its
total length will be n liltlo over twelve
miles, of which distance six nnd up-
word have been penetrated ou the
north, or Brigue, side and four and up-
ward on the south, or Italian, sido,
leaving only a fraction over one mile
yet to be completed. It ls expected
that the two sections will be joined
together In tho coming May or .lime,
nnd it will not be long thereafter when
trains will regularly be running
through. The organization of the work
Is of high efficiency. No sickness exists among the men. The use of tho
Brandt drill immediately suppresses
all dust, and thero has not been a
single case of miner's phthisis, although some 3,001) men have been ut
work for five years.

Jnck'a) JVenreM Approach to the Hundred  Per  Cent  Mark.
Jack's parents were ambitious for
their offspring, but tlie offspring lacked
both ambition aud industry. Hockey
and marbles were far more attractive
to Jack than geography and arithmetic; consequently his father nnd mother
had never achieved the desire of their
hearts, which was to seo their son at
the head of his class.
As the winter progressed Jack's
monthly reports kept pace with the
thermometer in Its slide toward zero.
Mother was discouraged; father was
wrathy. First bribes were offered, then
threats were resorted to, but nothing
availed, The end of each month always called forth the samo scene in
Jack's family —tears on tho part of
mother, the switch on tho part of father.
Jack would seem to be overcome by
remorse nnd promise better things for
the future, but If skating or coasting
happened to be good his resolutions
would melt under the ardor of his enthusiasm for these sports, and the lessons would go by the bourd.
"Oh, Jack, why can't you get 100?"
Sighed his mother when his lust report
was presented.
Jack fidgeted, stood first on ono foot,
then on another; theu he burst out desperately;
"Well, mother, 1—I come pretty near

that got 100!"—Philadelphia Ledger.
