Operator*of Chapleau Secure rromiHlnc
Gold   Propvrtjr.
About the only deal of any prominence that has lieen put through in
the camp in u year or more was effected on Friday last, when the Legal
claim, situated on the first north fork
of Lemon creek,  was  turned over to
F. Savage, for the operators of the
Chapleau, The deal was put through
by E, Bailey and runs for 12 months,
payments jailing due every three
months. A provision is also included
for taking up the bond in three
months by the pavmont of cash at a
reduced figure. The sum involved i.s
a substantial one and the deal is a
strictly bona fide transaction.
The Legal is owned by A. R. Bolderston and W. S. Johnson, who have
spent many thousands of dollars on it
in development. It is a genuine free
gold proposition, the vein averaging
at all points $35 io the ton, Two long
tunnels have been driven, and the surface ore chute is exposed in each.
Last yeur the vein was caught on the
other side of the hill ami shows four
feot of gold quartz, over several hundred feet of ground)
The bonded property is not mote
than two miles from the Chapleau
mill, and its product will prove a valuable addition to the Chapleau reserves. Mr. Savage Is much impressed
with his new holding.
Both of these papers have rendered
the localities in which thoy are published services of Incalculable value.
Thev havo Ixith experienced the usual
good and bad fortune common to papers published in new and sparsely
populated districts. Iii spite of periods of depression, when ads wore few
and poorly paid for, they have weathered the storms nnd today, let us
hope, they are entering upon a long
period of well deserved popularity.

He Resolves to Settle All the Discussion About Grasshoppers  and  Mzvkey  &  Trip   to the  Country at w
[Copyright, WOS. by C. B. Lewis.]
THERE was a look of dignity
and importance on Mr. Bowser's face as he reached homo
the other evening, but beforo
Mrs. Bowser had bad tin* to question
him he somewhat patronizingly observed:
"I'd like dinner right away, as I
shall be out this evening ln the interests of science."
"You are not going to sit out ln the
yard all night to see bow much tho
sunflowers grow, are you?" she asked.
"When I propose to make a fool of
myself I will send you a postal card!"
"Then what ls It?"
He was huffed and refused to answer
nntil after dinner.   Then, as he was
getting ready to go out, he said:
"It may be close upon midnight before I return, and you needn't sit up.
I shall go out Into the country for at
least two miles, and shall pass an bour
or two ln some meadow."
"But what ls lt all about?" she aslted.
"If I hurt your feelings ln speaking
about tiie sunflowers 1 beg your pardon."
"Well, a dispute has arisen between
naturalists over tho grasshopper. One
faction contends that lie does not sleep
et night, the other thnt he ls a sound
sleeper. One faction contends that his
long hind legs are merely for ornament,
the other that they arc used to jump
with. I hare been asked by our club to
Investigate and report on the matter."
"Are yon sure that lt ls not a joke
of some kind?"
"Joke? Joke? Who would attempt
to joke with me on such n subject?"
"But we all know thut every living
thing must sleep, and as for the grasshopper's hind legs, of course he uses
them to jump with."
"My dear woman, you are taking tho
same ground as one faction does and
proving that the matter ought to be settled without delay. I go out unprejudiced. I go to Investigate and report."
"Well, I hope you won't come home
mad at me," abe sighed.
"What nonsense!" be exclaimed.
"What have you got to do with a grasshopper's hind legs? Why should I
come home mad at you? Don't talk
like a schoolgirl. By this time tomorrow the world will know tbe grasshopper as he is, and tha name of Bowser
will be spoken ln every language
known to man. I'm off to Investigate."
Mrs. Bowser and the cat watched him
from the front door until be was lost
ln tbe darkness of evening, and then
both sighed and turned away. She
went ln to pick up a book and become
Interested, and the cat found her way
to the back yard to engage ln three or
four scraps and come out victor every
Ume.   Mr. Bowser might bave heard

to poke him up ln order to get a line
on his hind legs.
"Mem. No. 2. I have poked. As I
poked he jumped, and as be jumped It
seemed to me that he only made use of
his right hind leg. If tbls be so then
a three legged grasshopper^ would answer every purpose. I shall Investigate
further.
"Mem. No. 8. Have found another
hopper, and he seems to be wide awake.
It may be that my approach aroused
him.   Later on he will be poked.
"Mem. No. 4. I poked and be jumped.
I am not at all satisfied with wbnt I
saw. He seemed only to use bis front
legs to jump and to use his hind ones
to kick out with after he was in the
air. It may be tbat his hind feet are
bis defense, same as a mule's. It Is a
question never discussed before, and
tha honor of solving lt will belong to
me.

am going to give him a sudden jab and

And that was all. Tbe farmer wbo
had taken him for an anarchist bad
kept an eye on him, as he said he
would, nnd after seeing him climb the
fence had hurried on and got his sons,
Jim and Bill, to go back with blm.
They found Mr. Bowser lying In tbe
meadow on hla stomach, and tbe first
tblng he knew of their presence they
had laid hands on him and were walloping blm about with uncalled for
energy. He tried to explain, but the
farmer Interrupted him with:
"Go ln, Jim; go for him, Bill! Durn
his hide, but we'll give him all the
bomb blzness he wants before be ls
through with us!"
"You fools, my name is Bowser!" he
shouted.
"I don't keer whether It's Bowser or
Towser," shouted the farmer ln return, "but I know you won't burn any
barns for me!"
Mr. Bowser fought back, but three to
one ls big odds. They ripped the collar off his coat, tore all the buttons off
his vest and rolled him over and over
and threw him over the fence, and
when he had gathered himself up be
looked like a tramp who had been carried across the country by a cyclone.
The three men sat on tbe fence and
watched, until he had limped out of

The skirts of these chiffon evening
gowns nre made very full, with mnny
narrow rutllings, and tbe short sleeves
are also made of thc same small ruf-
flings.
A gown recently seen was of black
chnntilly having a shirred skirt nnd a
waist trimmed with tiny black silk
rosebuds and their leaves nnd a wide
belt and applications of dull green
chiffon velvet.
Taffeta hats are now being worn,
and they will continue the vogue until
straw takes their place. They aro
mostly shirred in bands held together
by coarse Ince or chiffon gauglngs.
The picture shows n plain taffeta hat
trimmed with a twist of tulle and a

Flamed  Hat* Are Good  investments.
Entire Clowns Mnile of Lace.
A plumed hat is about the best millinery Investment any woman can
make.
Elbow sleeves continue to bo most
popular for evening wenr, but they are
of a most fancy description, trimmed
with many ruffles and ruchlngs and
even decorated with tabs and ends of
narrow velvet or flowered ribbon.
Entire gowns of ecru Ince never go
out of fashion, und they nre nlways
easy to remodel in a dozen different
ways.
Spangled tulle over pale colored satin
mnkes a delightfully dainty evening
gown, although it Is decidedly perishable.
There ls also a revival of pnle colored

something nbout grasshoppers nt tne
corner drug store or the family butcher's, but he decided to go to the fountain head, the country pasture.
He must have looked like a mnn with
a mission, for he had hardly bonrded
the car when n fellow pnssenger moved
nearer to him and Inquired:
"Have you got anything very tremendous on your mind, neighbor?"
"What do you menu, sir?" stiffly demanded Mr. Bowser.
"Why, you look to me as if you were
goln' somewhere to buy a new milk
-sow or to tear up an acre or two of
ground."
"You mind your business, sir!"
"Ob, I'll mind my business nil right
and I'll keep an eye on you at thc same
time. Now that I look at you a little
closer, I'll bo hanged if I don't think
you aro an anarchist. If you are, don't
bang around my farm long. I expect j
you've got a bomb ln your pocket, but
you can't skeer me."
Mr. Bowser changed sents to bo rid
ef the man, and at the end of the route
bo let him get a good start before he
took to the highway behind hlm. It
waa a bright moonlight night, nnd a
grasshopper could be seen ns well ns
by noonday. After going bnlf n mile
tbo fence was climbed and the discoverer was ready to begin Investigations.
It did not take him long as he crept
about on hands and knees to discover
a grasshopper under a stnlk of clover,
and after Ave minutes of peering nbout
tho following entry was mude iu his
memorandum book:
"It Is a settled fact that tbe grass-!
hooper sleeps, but at tbo same time he I
threatened to sue for $1,000,000 damages.
It was striking midnight and Mrs.
Bowser wus still reading when the
front door was unlocked and Mr. Bowser entered.
"Is thnt you, dear?" she called.
"Yes, it ls me, denr," he replied as he
stood beforo her, "und I've got a few
words to say to you!"
"You've been run over or something?**
"I have."
"You didn't find out about tbe grasshoppers?"
"I didn't."
"And it's all my fault?"
"It Is!"
"And your lawyer will see my lawyer, and you'll send me home to mother by tbe evening train tomorrow?"
"I will!" he answered as be kicked
at the cat aud turned away to go upstairs and mnke repnlrs and go to bed.
Mrs. Bowser followed hlm nfter
awhile to find hlm In bed nnd fitfully
sleeping. His nose had been skinned,
his fnee scratched and his ear hurt,
nnd his chin seemed to be ail on one
side.
"Does n grasshopper sleep at night?"
"Br thunder, but I.can lick the three
of you rolled together!" he exclaimed
as he put up his fists ln his sleep.
"And obout a hopper's hind legs?"

"Yes, ray name's Bowser, nnd If I

lawns which look so much like chiffon,

as well us the fronts, although perhaps
not quite as elaborutely, the cuffs being of luce or embroidery to match the
rest of the trimming. A great variety

"THE MULE KOI.TKD WITH MK."
n citizen I was riding a mule into
I'liillipsvllle to attend un auction sale.
As I entered the town the mule bolted
with me, and in bis (light be performed many wild gyrations. My position
wns looked upon w< ridiculous by most
of the people and by Mr. David Bertram in particular. This gentleman
laughed until he shed tears, and he
declared that the performance was a
whole circus ln itself. He wns still
laughing when I dismounted uud walked up to him und observed:
" 'Yo' seem In merry mood, suh. Perhaps yo' will state the cause of yo'r
hilarity nnd let mo laugh with yo'V
"He stated It. It had reference to
me and the mule. When he had finished I said:
" 'My dear suh, if any antics of mine
have furnished yo' relaxation for n
few minutes I must feel highly honored. Will yo' in turn now honor nie?
I will name Judge Gordon as my second, nnd he will confer with nny gentleman you select.'
"Mr. Bertram's smile fnded nt once."
said tbe colonel, "and it didn't take
hlm n minute to realize the seriousness of the situation. He had gone too
far—altogether too far, suh—and he
would have been glad to apologize. I
wouldn't have It, however. 1 had
made up my mind not only to maintain my own dignity, but that of the
mule ns well, and the combination was
a little hard for hlm to swallow. He
wns a man of courage besides, and
nfter n little hesitation he named his
second, and a duel was arranged for.
"We met nt sunrise two mornlugs
Inter. The weapons were pistols, and
nt the first lire I cut a lock of hair
from his bead, while his bullet went
wide. I meant to bore him through
the shoulder at the second lire, but before we were ready our seconds asked
if the affair could not be slopped. I
answered them:
" 'Gentlemen, I have no desire to
slaughter Mr. Bertram, but I must
contend that my position on that run-
nway mule was in no sense or manner
undignified. I know I lost my bat I
know that my hair flew, I know that
my eyes bulged out and my coat tails
flapped.'
" 'I do not recognize it lo the fullest
extent,' replied my opponent, and then
I continued:
" 'I believe my mule jumped over
two or three carts, escaped two or
three fences, stood on his head and
performed various other evolutions,
but I cannot admit that be rendered
himself ridiculous. If it Is so contended by others, then this duel must go
on.'
'"The attitude of yo'r mule was
somewhat queer, but nt the same time
full of dignity.' replied Mr. Bertram.
"Next moment W0 were grasping
each other's hand.
"That was the upbuilding of the
mule. He was recognized as an animal
of character, and gentlemen who had
hesitated to bestride him before now
helped to make hlm popular. And It
became known far and wide-far and
wide, suh—that any one seeking to Impugn the dignity of tho mule would
have to stand befo' Colonel Hunker on
the Held of honnli. and It was wonderful how few critics ho had."

wiih Seriousness.
Caroline Hazard In her "Education
of Women" snys, "How few of us
study to put things persuasively, to
reach 11 proper climax, to retire gracefully from a subject." it is 11 common
snying that tho art of conversation has
disappeared from among us, nnd yet lt
is tin art held in honor by till men.
Telegraphic speech has taken the place
of the more careful and elaborate
forms of conference. But it is nn art
Which Bhould he presented to nil young
people nnd which they should study
with seriousness and attention. Nothing reully Inspires, nothing really creates enthusiasm but the perception of
an ultimate Ideal, whether lt bo in art
or music or ln any other of the renlms
of spiritual thought This ideal of
beauty hus to come to the aid of every
form of expression, lifting nnd raising
lt into its own kingdom, 'i'he student
who hns even begun on such a course
of training, who can see beauty in everything in the created world nnd ln
the reulm of thought, lias certainly begun to be beautiful In himself. For
beauty most truly passes Into the person who studies the beautiful. No one
can givo out what he does not have to
give. He must lirst absorb benuty nt
the great natural reservoirs nnd fountains of the beautiful before he himself
can become truly bountiful in life and
character und so able to transmit beauty to all around him.
ANCIENT BABYLON.
Ita Great Wall Wna One of the Won-
dera of TIiobc   Dnys.
According to Herodotus, the ancient
city of Babylon stood on n broad, level
plain nnd was an exact square of fourteen miles each wuy, making the entire
circuit of the city llfty-slx miles. It
was protected both by a wall and a
moat, the latter being broad nnd deep
and kept constantly tilled with water.
But the wull wns the wonder of wonders, being 03 1-3 feet in width ond au
even 200 feet In height. This monster
barrier was provided with 100 gates,
all of solid brass, the lintels and sldo
pieces being In bronze. Cross walls
ran along the banks of the Euphrates,
each provided with twenty-five gates,
which corresponded to the number of
streets running In each direction from
tbe river.
The most remarkable edifice inside
the wall was the temple of Bel, n pyramid of eight square stadia. On tho
summit of this pyramid stood n pure
gold Image of Bel forty feet high, two
other smnller figures of the snmo precious metal nnd a golden table forty feet
long and fifteen feet wide. This wonderful city first enme prominently Into
the history of tho world in the yenr 747
B. Q., but since the time of Alexander
the Great it has been n ruin, the site
having at one time been entirely lost
THE GREAT CONDOR.
It la the Moat Dlfllrnlt Bird la the
World to Trap.
Trobably the great condor is the most
dltllcult bird in the world to trap. One
of the grent vultures, It inhabits lofty
peaks of the Andes, hardly accessible
to man. It builds its nest nmong tho
topmost crags, often on n ledge of some
precipice with nn almost perpendicular
drop of many hundred feet.
An extremely wary bird, it shares
wltb Its congeners the proverbial "eagle eye" and is thus able to see Immense distances while yet unseen by
mnn. Its wings hnve a sprend of
twelve feet, and, though Its flight is
heavy, it can sustain itself for long periods tn the air.
To trap it men ascend to its haunts
■nd shoot some animal of considerable
size. This ls skinned, nnd a man lies
down by the body under the skin and
waits, perhnps for hours. Soon condors come flocking round until one settles on the skin, when the man below
grips its legs, flings tho skin over it
and stabs it to death.
The strength of these birds ls enormous, and the condor hunters often
have their arms broken by strokes
from their powerful wings.

It la well known that under the action of gravity the water composing
inch a thin shell as a soap bubble tends
to run down on all sides, so that the
walls of tbe bubble grow thin at the
top and thicken toward the bottom.
After a time tbe bubble becomes so
thin at the top that further flow of water from this point can hardly take
place, and finally the bubble bursts
Uut before this last stage is reached a
degree of thinness in the walls of the
bubble is attained which causes It to
glow with brilliant iridescent' colors.
Newton noticed that on top of the thin
bubble illuminated by white sky light
a black spot ls formed. With increase
of thickness downward from this point
on all sides, a red band next appears;
then a blue one; then again red and
blue, red and blue, and so on, the colors showing more extremes of red and
purple ln the higher orders. This blue
band which first expands outward from
the black spot at the top and descends
slowly with the subsidence of the water Newton called tbe "blue of the first
order," and, although somewhat dingy,
he judged lt to be of the same tint as
the blue of the sky.-T. J. J. See in Atlantic.

Canada i.s this year to experience
the greatest inrush of settlers the
country has yet known. Clinging to
the old policy of protection is the
secret of the growth of the Dominion.
The Liberal government at Ottawa
derive huge pleasure in suppressing
the anti-Jap legislation, of this -province. They have just disallowed au
act passed at the last session of the
legislature, entitled "An Act relating
to employment on works carried on
under franchise granted by private
acts." The bill aimed at the exclusion
of Japanese labor.
The Slocan country .during.its short
but fateful experience, has proven a
veritable cemetery for journalistic enterprise. Slocan throttled the News
aud the Pioneer; Silvertou choked the
Silvertoniau; New Denver squelched
the Prospector and the Times; Three
Forks extinguished the Prospector;
and Sandou buried the Paystreak and
the Mining Review. Nakusp, Lardo,
Kaslo, and Ainsworth, ou the fringes
of the district, have also did the killing act. Besides the straight paper
ventures so untimely cut off, a number of freak publications and jobbing
outfits have passed into the boneyard.
where they lie forgotten and uninouru-
ed. Alas! and alas I and the end is
not yet.   __________
When advertising receives the official commendation aud endoisation of
a government, its efficacy should no
longer lie doubted. In the recently
published report of the department of
the interior for the Dominion, W. J.
White, head of the Immigration agencies in the States, says: '•Without, advertising the agents would have had a
most difficult task. The regular
method of advertising that of ad ver
tising in tho newspapers of the district
in which our work is being carried on
—has been given special attention.
Last year display advertising, with
occasional reading notices, was placed
in nearly eight thousand papers. It
was most satisfactory, and as a result
of it hundreds of thousands of applications for information came into the
hands of our agents." Modern usages
enforce the lesson that advertising is
essential to business success.
Premier McBride has declared thnt
tlie British government has made a
great mistake in permitting the introduction of Chinese labor into the
mines of South Africa, believing that
the step will result in much trouble
and disaster, He stated he and his
government were BtrOUgly opposed to
Chinese immigration and labor, for
British Columbia had suffered much
from tln-ir presence and the labor
troubles resulting from their employment. The people of the province will
heartily endorse the premier's state:
inents and his prominent stand. Experience with Chinese influence has
been dearly bought, and its lessons
are deeply impressed for all time to
<-ome. Tiie Balfour government is
losing in strength and prestige for
foisting the undesired Mongolians on
to the patriots of Africa, having been
swayed by the representations of capitalists. Much of the good resulting
from the Boer war will be destroyed
and unrest and dissension follow.
