Thomas Jones, representative of the
Lanyon Zinc Works, of Iola, Kansas,
hns succeeded in gecuring a ruling
from the United .States customs appraisers, admitting Canadian zinc ores
free of duty into the United States
for treatment. Some weeks ago he
contracted with a number of Slocan
mines for 1000 tons of zinc on*, to lie

were sent to Antwerp. Belgium, The

Mr. Jones is in the field to secure
all the ore available, and his actions
will Ixi followed by other buyers. All
the Slocan properties possessing
bodies of zinc are preparing to mine
everything in sight. There will be
many more men ndded to the working
forces and the output promises to be
heavy. As a first result of the Washington ruling, the Payne on Friday
ss'tit out U18 tons of zinc, and will follow this up with regular shipments,
These will be followed by others from
the Slocan Star, Ivanhoe, Lucky Jim,
Bosun, Wakefield, and other mines,
Several idle properties are likely also
to be put in operation..
To better handle the output, Mr.
Jones' company will establish sampling works nt Kaslo, or some other favorable spot, and so expedite shipments. The demand for zinc will have
a direct influence on this portion of
the Sloean, affecting principally the
Enterprise, on Ten Mile. There zinc

ruling by the customs authorities as
whether it could pass without pay
in'* duty. Zinc ores were not specifically mentioned in the customs schedule, but the officers would not pass
the shipments till the  Washington
people gave a ruling. Mr. Jones went
to Port Townsend and interviewed
Qol. Heustis, the head of the American customs in the state of Washing

to the federal authorities at the city of
Washington. The latter took the ease
under adviseni'iil and O'l Thursday

country free.

deal of zinc in its several workings,
which can in future be handled tsi advantage and profit,   The Enterprise
is the only mine in this division possessing zinc in quantity, but other deposits are known to exist in the camp,
and the ready sale for the article will

Preparations are being made at the

He aji,'enled t'l the darkness: und
when his voice ceased, it seemesl 10
him that thc darkness surged with
sounds which carried confusion into

impression with which lio had.awakened, was clean gone from him. He

the .'.cm of (lowers.     Two of tho inmates   of   Hie   .Manse,   found   the   time
pass ull loo quickly. They tool-
long walks to favorite and almost
forgotten haunts. Thoy paid long
visits to various old folks In the village, who hud known John Cayford
from his boyhood, and who insist..*d
an his partaking of tea and scones
and Ayrshire cheese, while they told
hint of relatives of their own in Australia and produced sundry Well
worn Is'lters from abroad fsir his Inspection. Mary was his constant
companion, ready at any hour for
any exclusion he liked to propose.
Together they sailed out to Ailsu
Craig, and walks-si to l.endal Foot,
and revisited all the places that hud
been dear to Alice. Kale was occasionally asked to join them, but she
excused herself, she wus too busy,
she said. Shu was busy: not only
in waging war against material
foes, (for it pleased her at this particular period to have tho Manse
thoroughly cleaned from attic to
basement—a proceeding which bewildered her uncle, wearied herself,
unsl gave John and Mary every reason to remain out of doors,) but
also in waging war against certain
devils who took up their abode in
her heart, and refused, for the time
being, to be driven out.
Kate—whose soul had so lately
been thrilled to its depths by tho
most overpowering und inspiring
emotion she hud ever experienced, so
that, for a brief space, she seemed
to herself to have attained to the
knowledge of all good—had now attained to the knowledge of much
evil; was, in fact, a prey to jealousy, anger, hatred even. Throughout the day, she iserformed
such miracles of energy, that the
stolid llella was amazed at her mistress' ardor; and at night, she sank
wearied upon her bed, to be tormented through Ion*,' hours by thoughts
which sho had not the strength to
banish. Sho would rise in the morning, heavy eyed and lanquid, with
that numbness and apathy about her
heart, which is pleasure in comparison with the pain of feeling; it did
not, unfortunately, outlast the
breakfast hour, The kindly sun tanned her cheeks to mask her pallor;
but nothing could di9guisc the un-
romantic fact that her temper suffered.
"I wish some one would go to
Raeden, for me," said Mr. FerriB one
morning. "There is a message I want
taken to your old friend Morison the
weaver, Kate; I should like him to
have it to.day."
No one responded to this appeal;
Kate, to whom it was more particularly addressed, studisnl the contents
of her coffee cup intently. Tiaeden was
a village five miles distant, the road
to it was dusty, shadeless, and uninteresting; Kate not Infrequently went
there, but to-day she felt weary and
unequal to the walk. Mary glanced
hesitatingly at her cousin, and then
"I am so sorry, Uncle, that I have
promised to lunch at Doune Hoiisi.
With John. I am afraid th.'s-e would
not be time to do both, unless indeed, I left directly after lunch; then
I might manage it."
"Why, Mary," said John, "Doune
House must be two miles in the opposite direction. You could not walk
so f„.r."
"Well then." continued Mary, anxious to solve the difficulty, "suppose
I go to Itaeden instead of Dtiune
House. You must, go there, John,
but the Craigs can see me at any
time. I don't believe they would
"Certainly I should mind. Will tomorrow do, Mr. Ferris? we can go
for you then. Even if Mary were to
break her engagement, llaeden is too
far for her to walk there alone; don't
you agree with me Kate?"
Kate bad listened apathetically to
tho conversation; she did not. care,
sho told herself, how they sett lest the
mutter. This direct appeal affected
her strangely. Why should John apply to her, to sanction his own plans
—to acquiesce with the absurd consideration With which Mary was
treated? She (lashed a quick glance
al. him from her dark eves, nntl con-
veyed in her tone all the sarcasm at
her rnmmund, as she answered. "De-
oidedly I agree with you. Considering
Marys age, it is quite out of the
question fur her to walk five miles
along a country road in broad daylight, without a companion. I have
tho goosl fortune to be three years
older, f'ive ine your message, Uncle,
I can take it this afternoon."
Sho hntl the satisfaction to see
amazed looks exchanged by her companions, and she struggled desperately with an inclination to cry.
"Oh Kate, dear," exclaimed Alary,
herself almost in teurs, "do let me
go for you. or else, say that I may
go with you."
'"thanks," rejoined Knto. icily,
"there is no need to niter any ar-
Fangments, 1 shall enjoy tho walk. I
prefer to bo alone "
After thla, the subject was dropped.
Kate went to itaeden in slue Course,
Wrestled With her enemies all lhe
way, and got the better of them be-
foiB! her return.
John dismissed this little episode
from his mind, with the reflection
that Kato must be a most unsympathetic companion for Mary; but biter
in tho day, It recurred to him. He

Cyril Moore, lawyer, was not noted
for the suavity of his manner nor the
mildness of his glance. Both were unusually severe this morning, and he
was not Inclined to deal gently with
bis disturber. He hud been interrupted
In the consideration of nu Important
matter, but Dorothy Dale's brown eyes
never flinched before his deep set gray
"Please, may 1 talk to you a few
minutes?" she asked lu her soft little
"I am very busy," he returned, "and
gave orders that I was not to be disturbed."
"The elevator boy showed mo your
office, aud there was no one In the other room, and so I came In," suid Dorothy.
The lawyer made au Impatient movement mentally resolving upon the censure which Wilson should receive for
leaving the entrance to the otlice unguarded.
Two little red spots hud crept Into
Dorothy's face, but she went on bravely:
"You see," she began, "I"—
The lawyer again moved Impatiently
nnd frowned, but his smnll visitor persisted.
"It Is so Important, you see." There
wns a keen uote of anxiety in her
voice, but the brown eyes never wavered. And what was there iu their
depths which brought to the lawyer's
mind a vague memory and made bim
look nt bis visitor with a stirring of Interest, then hesitate nnd finally push
aside the papers over which tie had
been absorbed and say shortly:
"What Is lt? I can give you u few
"Oh, thank yon," snld Dorothy politely. "It Is sbout thnt position In the
Hilton school."
Cyril stared In surprise. What could
tbls little, old fashioned girl have to
say about thut? It would be Interesting to know. He pushed bis papers
farther away and leaned back in bis
"Sit down," he snld, pointing to a
chair. Dorothy obeyed with a grave
"Thank you," settllug herself comfortably in tbe chair which was so high
that her feet were quite u distance
from tlie ground. Her blue felt sailor
hat was pushed buck on her bead, nnd
several soft brown rings of her hair
had found tbelr w-uy to iter forehead
She lifted ber clear eyes to the lawyer,
nnd again their depths vaguely stirred
his heart.
"You see, auntie lost nl) ber money
lu Boston, and so we hnd to come bere
to live. Auntie owns a little house here,
and she says thut is better thun nothing. And yesterday Mrs. Prudcu told
her they wanted a teacher in tbat
school and that auntie must try to get
it right nway."
"Oh, indeed," ejaculated Cyril.
"You see." she went on In a confidential tone, "auntie knows n lot of tilings
She belonged to ever so many clubs iu
Boston. Every one says Unit sbe is so
Dorothy paused to seo If the lawyer
wns properly impressed with tbe im
portance of her mint's acquirements.
"Yes," said Cyril politely.
"Mrs. Prudeu told ntintie that you
could let her teach thut school, but
Inst evening a letter came from Mr.
White In Boston to say auntie must
come to see him right off. You see, he
attends to ull of her business. So sue
had to go on tbe early train this morn
ing." Here Dorothy stopped, out of
Cyril uttered nn interrogative "Yes."
Dorothy smiled up at blm, "And 1
was ufrnid she might bo too late when
she came back, nnd then It will be
such a nice surprise for her wben she
does come bnck for me to tell her I
enme to see you about it"
"Then she doesn't know what you
ore doing?" queried Cyril.
"Oh, no.  I waited till she was gone."
"Where do you live?" questioned
"Over on Pose Crescent"
The lawyer did not recognize the lo-
cnlity, but there hud been many
changes in the old town during those
years In which he hud beeu nbseiit
fin ui it
"Auntie will be s splendid teacher.
You see, she's so sweet. Won't you
please try her?"
In her eagerness Dorothy arose and
stood beside Cyril, placing her hand In
its woolen mitten on Iiis nrm.
The little action thrilled blm. a sudden realization of tlie loneliness of his
life smote him, nnd again (he child's
brown eyes awoke thnt memory.
"Please, won't you?*' urged Dorothy,
with au unconscious pressure of Ills
Cyril looked down Into the eager
fuce with nn expression In his own
thut few bad seen tbere during Inter
"I'll see whnt I ean do. I must know
more of her qunlltlcntlons. I iiieiiu,"
he explained kindly, "If she knows nil
tbe things that the person who tenches
lu that school must know I'll do my
"Oh, thnnk yon. I'll go now." Doro
tby slipped off ttip mitten nnd gravely
teudered ber bund to the lawyer. He
rose nnd bowed over It with more ceremony than be hnd for muny yenrs
shown any other member of her sex.
Dorothy flushed a confiding smile nt
htm und tripped Jauntily awuy through
the outer oltlee, much to the surprise
of Wilson, who wus now nt bis post.
WUsM was still more surprised thut
afternoon wben on going Into tbe law
yor's private room ho found Mm putting his dook In ordor and was waved
„wav   with:   "Don't   bother  nie   willi
tbat now, it's such n Hue nfuTiioon
think I'll take U walk und look at that
Dorren property."
Wilson went buck to his desk, lie
furtively watched the lawyer as the
latter put on overcoat hut and gloves.
It was the tlrst time within his knowledge lhat Cyril hud set aside an iiupor
taut matter. What had happened?
The lawyer wulkeil ou witb rapid
stride. Tbere wus in the air u sugges
Hon of the spring which was not yet
On the corner tin organ grinder was
playing popular nlrs. A little farther
on n (lower vender wns offering bouquets of violets for sule. The scent
of the flowers llouts'd up to hlin, und
the memories awakened earlier lu the
dny by a pair of childish eyes were
nguln stirred. Cyril bought one of the
fragrant purple clusters, fastening It
In the lnpel of his eont with a smile.
When had he done such n thing?
As he walked nlong his glance fell
upon n lamppost bearing the name
"Rose Crescent."
A sudden remembrance enuie to him
of his little visitor or the morning,
That wns where she had said she
lived. lie recalled Ills promise to do
what he could for her tiunt. Why not
call upon her and lind out her tltuess
for the position? Ile paused to glUUCS
up and down the street
But thc child had not told him her
aunt's mime or their number. Then lt
was useless to consider It further.
Still be would like to please that Child.
He wus walking on wheu he heard
u flying of small feet bell lud him and
bis name called. He turned around to
see his little visitor of the morning.
"Oh." she exclaimed. ''1 was at tbe
window and saw you passing. 1
thought perhaps you were coming to
see us."
"Well," snid Cyril, smiling, "you did
not tell me your number."
"1   forgot,"   she   laughed,     "It's   tn
here."    Tliey had been walking back,
and  now  she stopped  In   front  of  n
modest house stniuling back from the
I street
"Come In," she said. "Auntie's Just
! got home. I didn't tell her about It yet."
! Cyril followed her up the garden
path and into the house. She led hlm
I into a room opening off n small hall
I A lady seated before an open tire rose
I nt Iiis entrance. She was not very
| young, and she was very sweet look*
' lug. with great brown eyes.
"Madam," began Cyril, "I"—
He bioko off abruptly, looked bewildered, then ejaculated, "Rebecca Pow*
"Cyril:  Why"-
"Yoii ss'e. auntie, I went to ss*e Mr.
Moore ubout that school. I Was afraid
you'd be too late, and"- began Dorothy.
But neither her it nut nor the lawyer
seemed to bear her. Tbe latter was
saying. "She lias eyes like yours."
"You see, auntie," began Dorothy
Once more, but Stopped ns Cyril spoke
again. "To find you bere!" His face
was flushed, and Ids eyes were shining. There was a bright color in the
cheeks of Dorothy's aunt too. Dorothy
was looking ut her In surprise. Why,
she knew Mr. Moore. Then she would
surely get that school.
"Are you still Rebecca Powers?
Wben I saw you last, 1 thought that
yon were going to marry"—
Miss Powers Interrupted blm quietly.
"You were mistaken, but 1 remember
yon bad u bad ha bit lu those days of
Jumping ut conclusions."
"'1 hai isiie hus cost me dear—all these
lonely years." he said.
He took the bunch of violets from
his coat, "i remember you were always fond of violets, Rebecca, Are you
still'.'" He held Hie fragrant blossoms
toward her, and Miss Powers, after a
glance Into his fnee, took them from
his hand. She lit hi tbem to inr lips a
moment, then fastened them ears fully
In her bosom.
Dorothy was becoming Impatient'
but to her great amazement Just then
Cyril stooped down uud kissed her
Then he turned to Dorothy. "I nm

of one pupil." be said—"one who needs

"One pupil!" exclaimed Dorothy,

Only those who hsive suffered from
the pangs of rht'iimutisiii know how
much agony the sufferer bus ul times
: to endure. The symptoms often vary,
but among tbem will be found acute
pains in the muscles und joints, tIk*
latter sometimes much swollen.    At
times the patient, is unable to dress
himself, mid tha slightest Jar ring
sound aggravates the pain. Liniments and outward applications cannot possibly cure rheumatism ; lt
must be treated through the blood,

Wonder how it was the American
tariff framers overlooked zinc? Blocan
mineowners for onee may be deemed
fortunate. For the nonce they can
smile at the smelter trust, which Ixit-
tled up their lead.

Reading between the lines of an article in last Saturday's Tribune, the

Houston's support in the legislature

zinc free into the United States. That
ruling means more to the camp than
a bumper harvest on the prairies.
Grain is good, but to a hard hit silver-
lead camp zinc is better.

Hon.  Denis  Murphy's  resignation
