The train service on the Nakusp •&
Sloean Railway has been run in a disgraceful condition for mouths, passengers aud mail lieing delayed with impunity. Last week the Sandon city
oeunoil grappled with the situation
aud evolved the following resolution
"That, in the opinion of this council, the passenger service of the Nakusp tfc Sloean Railway is a public
disgrace and ought to be remedied.
By the published timetable of the C.
P.E. Co. for said branch railway,
trains aro due to arriyo iu Sandon at
4.80 p.m., but for several months past
the trains have been from two to eight
hours late. At New Denver siding
passengers aro obliged to wait for |
hours in the station building, which >
is neither heated or lighted.
Further, it is a frequent occurrence
that it takes six hours and more for
passengers to come from New Deaver
to Sandon   a distance of nine miles.
Be it further resolved, that this
council does not consider that such
scandalous train service is the fault of
any of the officials or men employed
on said branch railway, but is owing,
so this council lielieves, to the passenger train being compelled to do
freight work on said line of railway.
Be it further resolved, that a copy
of this resolution be sent to Sir Thos.
Shaughnessy, R. Marpole. Esq., aud
J. S. Lawrence, Esq,
This council respectfully requests
that such changes may be made as
will ensure the passenger train reaching Sandon on time, or reasonably so."

Wm. Thomlinson came down from
New Denver on Wednesday, bringing
news of a terrible accident that occurred at tlie Moilie Hughes mine, near
the town, about 9 o'clock that morning. Tom Avison, one of the owners
of tho property, and Andy Tuuka aro
working the mine under lease, and it
was shortly after going on shift that
the accident occurred. Both were at
work in the drift and had left some
powder outside thawing befora an
open fire. Avison wont out to see how
it was getting on and just got to the
fire when the powder exploded, the
full force of the explosion catching
the unfortunate man. While marvol-
ously escaping death, he is all out aud
bruised from his forehead to his knees,
and his clothing was iu shreds.
On hearing the explosion, Tunks
rushed front the drift, only to find hi3
partner lying bleeding and torn on
the dump. He at once picked Tom
up and packed him down tho lake
shore, placed him in a boat and rowed
him over to New Denver, where kind
friends at onco took him to the hospital and his many wounds dressed.
His injuries, while severe, are not expected to prove fatal. Tunks was
covered with blood through packing
his partner.

Editor Drill:
Sir,-—Will you kindly allow me,
through your paper, to place before
tho farmers aud fruit growers a
scheme for the advancement of our
province. The advantages of British
Columbia as a p'ace for settlers are
vory little kuovu, and it cannot Im
denied that whore printed matter will
often pass unheeded the object itself
will arrest attention.
My proposition, therefore, is to col-
lect samples of roots, fall and winter
fruit, etc.. to be forwarded to Great
Britain. There thoy could remain for
a certain time on exhibition in the
large towns, and afterwards be distributed among the hospital* and sueh
like institutions, where they would no
doubt be highly appreciated. I would
suggest printing a list of the donors,
together with particulars of the fruit,
etc.. which each contributes, so that
intending settlers might, if they desired, obtain information aliout any
particular locality from a resident. By
this means it might also lie possible
to open up fresh markets for our fruit
antl introduce capital.
I would esteem it a favor if intending donors of produce would kindly
give probable weight aad class of
sample when communicating with me.
in order to facilitate arrangements for
collection.   Yours truly,
H. V. Leonard, J.P.

The recent advances in silver has
had a stimulating effect in many of
the silver producing sections of the
west. Lower grade ores than were
possible to mine at a profit a little
while ago are being mined. Tho lead
camps, though the price of lead has
advanced, are not receiving any benefit, ami while the quotations for lead
are above 14.50, the smelter trust arbitrarily makes settlements at the old
quotations of .18.60a Producers are
withhold] ng shipments on this account.
The combination is no doubt trying
to keep the price* up for lioth silver
ami lead, and as it undoubtedly has
absolute control of the market for both
metals, it cau manipulate prices to
hiiit its own ends. It would, however,
be a wise policy to give the niiuer or
producer at least a portion of the profits arising from the better prices. In
a certain measure the trust must depend on the miner for its ore supply,
and unless he is accorded some consideration and some profit, lie may lie
compelled to close down his mines.

A Love
Soon the pavements were struck,
and the hood was removed; but
riaiiNiine could see nothing. The
curtains of the coach were closed,
ond the blinds drawn up' over the
windows. She only knew that the
two men were with her. nnd that she
Was being driven rupidly away from
lur home, If she thought of asking
any tpiostions, the loud clang and
rattle of the wJieels upon the cobhle-
stons pavement admonished her that
she might have to raise her voice
nigh enough to incur the penalty of
being again smothered, and she held
her pence. Hut she held it with pain
mid anguish unutterable. In the
tlarkncss and tho whirl, with the
pain-giving clutch of her captors upon her limbs, her thoughts were
busy; and if they bad not logical sentience, the.v at least grasped stern
facts, with deductions that were not
entirely illogicul. And the events of
which she thought wore dark and
gloomy ones. Caspar Hugo was
her enemy; Endora and Appleton
were her friends; and Hugo had
learned of their interfeience in her
behalf, and had resorted to this method of overcoming it. His visit to
ber during the day had been only for
tin* purpose of sounding her and for
laying his plans. The letter bearing
Paul's signature had been a forgery.
She hnd arrived at this point In
her wildly whirling fancies, and was
thanking fortune that I'aul had not
written the unworthy words, when
tho coach stopped, and, before she
could make a motion to prevent it,
the thick robe was again thrown over lur head, and very soon she was
lilted out upon a hard sidewalk and
hurried away through a narrow passage. She knew lt was narrow by
the manner in which her conductors
wero forced to crowd their way. Al
length, a door was unlocked and opened, and sho was l"d into a small
hall, and then up u flight of contracted stairs: thence up another
■light, until linnlly, she was led into
a small chamber, where the hood
was removed from her head, and a
voice said to her: "Sit down!" and
a hand pushed her back into a chair;
and she was so weak tlmt she did
not attempt to rise. It was a rocking-chair, low and easy, and she
sank back with a smothered sob.
"Easy, my lady" You're past all
hnrm and danger. You are In a castle where no power tin earth can
come to ruffle tho smooth waters of
the fate I have in storo for yon."
Sho knew tho voice. Sho looked
up, nnd by thc light of a single candle which stood upon a small table
near them, sho saw Caspar Hugo
She did not start as she might havo
started at some terror unexpected,
for this man had occupied her
thoughts, and she hnd associated hlin
with the present calamity. Of all
the people sho had ever seen or known
she had not known another whom
sho thought so base and wicked as
tho man now before her. She looked upon him, nnd she saw him exactly as she had seen him on that
day when he bad first come to the
Brookside with his master. He was
dressed very nearly the same, and
his face wore the same serpent-liko
expression, nnd tho beaming of his
eyes was ns ophidions as then, save
that now there wns more thnn nwl-
ovolenco in them.
She looked at hlm and then she
glahced uround the room. It was
small, and tho ceiling was low, and
tho only furniture consisted of n
few chairs and a small table. There
Were two doors, upon opposite sides
t'f lhe room. One was shut and ono
was open. Through that which Was
closed sho bad probably entered. Beyond tho other she saw another
apartment, and the corner-post o( a
bed. The walls were pierced for no
Windows; but upon looking upward
she saw a small square window overhead. The ceiling was sloping,
nnd tho Window was in the roof of
tlm house. Ami she observed that it
was guarded by stout iron bars, like
tho bars of a prison. They were
ominous, nnd sho shldderod when
she saw them Caspar observed the
glance nnd the shudder.
"ThoBS bars." he said, "were put
there for protection. Thieves have
Inert known tai break through sky-
HghtS; but they can't break through
this one."
Having thus attrarted the maiden's
attention, ho proceeded, calling her
by namo with easy familiarity:
"And now, Christine, I have no
doubt you would like to know what
iill this means "
Tho familiar lone nroiiseti her Indignation, and gave her strength.
But she answered him only with silent attention. If it wus bin purpose
to inform her, ho would probably do
He seemed to understand her, antl
presently continued:
*'lt is late, anil I know you must

Christine found it. hard to restrain

witus,    sii    trippingly  ami  so  unctii-'
ously  spoken;   but   she  cluttheti     her ■
lingers until the deliente bones cracked,  and heltl her peace.
"You know, my dear girl," Caspar went on, "how 1 wns lirst called
to tho Brookside; nnd you know
what has since transpired. 1 may
remark, however, lhat the most poignant blow my heart ever received
enme in the knowledge that you were
solemnly affiianced to young Waybrook. 1 learned that Air. Waybrook the elder had forbidden the
union of his son with yourself, Aye,
that ho had sworn to cast off the
boy forecer if he persisted in pursuing the, alliance. I saw that if I'aul
Waybrook should mako you his wife,
ho would wed you and himself to

a wave of the hand, "1 will save him
If 1 can. I heard from him this evening, and ho was with his rioting
companions at the club. He's taking
it easy, I as-sure you."
Christine had known Paul's one
weakness, and she dared not deny
the man's assertion. But that he
had deserted her—she knew it was
false. His father's harshness had
driven him to the sorrow. She sank
back, and covered her face with her
"You may not be aware," continued Caspar, after a pause, ''how
much assistance I have rendered to
tho heir of Madame lluchel's estate.
It was through my means entirely
that he became aware of his heirship,

"I mean," he saiil, as the words
stuck in her throat, "thut you k<'

may as well know and be prepared
for it."
She could not answer him. She
could only see him depart, untl hear
him lock the door behind hiin. and
then sink back iuto the chair. The
fate was overwhelming— more than
sh* could clearly consider. That she

awoke sober and repentant. Ile did
noti think longingly or regretfully of
home, for he had, for tbe time, nt

mother was there to soothe with
tender words his troubled spirit, and
cool with gentle touch his throbbing
brow. No mother's love made sarred
the hearthstone, and no mother's
smile made sunshine in the circle, lie
thought of his mother on this morning of pain and self-condemnation,
and he tbougbt how gladly he would
confess his sin, and ask her forgiveness. Ah! how she had forgiven him
in the otber days, and how, by her
love, hud she led him out from many
a wayward danger I But ho could
claim her lovo no more on
etuth. He thought of her as
one Sanctified In the better world,

that she might look down upon hiin
No--lic rather prayed tbat ihe might

Of his father he would not think.
Shut up in his heart wna* the feeling

The   general   arrangement   of   the
leaves on limbs nntl stalks of trees and
plants secures lietween each sullicient
Bpace to prevent one leaf from Interfering with unother. And not only are
leaves so arranged as to exist independently of each oilier, but in n general
way tliey have taken upon themselves
the forms best adapted to secure the
maximum of sunlight as it is shotfered
upon them in different latitudes. At
the equator, whero tbe sun's rnys nre
vertical, we find lar^ flat leaves liko
those of the banana, plantain nnd the
various species ot the cactus.
farther north, whoro Bunllght strikes
nt nn angle, small leaves and pino "needles" are found. Then again note the
peculiarity of tbo Australian puni tree.
Instead of expo:-iiiK their broad faces to
the sun tho edges.only nre so turned.
Were it otherwise the sun would rob
them of till their moisture, lt being a
well known fact that the gum tree
grows iu the driest region on earth.

"Let me see the name on tlio envoi

"But 1 waa told," replied the boy, "to

"Oh, you got turned around a littlo

doctor, reaching for tho note.
And it took considerable argument to

** Now is the opportunity when silver
is high for claim owners to get in and

If Laurier would only get that miut
