All the members of the city council, with the exception of Aid.Barber
were present at the regular meeting
on Monday night.
W. A. Galliher, M. P.,solicitor for
the "famous 34" and a number of
others, wrote as follows: "Take notice that an application will be made
to his lienor Jttil;;o Forin. en behalf
of (each applicant named ui a separate notice), at the court house, in the
city of Nelson, on the 6th dny of January, 1902, at tho hour of 11 o'clock
in the forenoon, for reinstatement on
the voters' list of the said city of Slocan, recently revised by tho mayor
of said city, claiming that he (each
applicant) is a license holder (nr pro
perty holder as the case might be' in
said city and hns been wrongfully
struck off said list by said mayor,"
The mayor remarked that he noticed that the names of John Wafer,
W. D. McGregor and others, did not
appear in tho notices sent by Mr.Gal*
liher, as they had no dim lit felt
aslinmed of themselves. He did not
consider any of them properly qualified, so had struck tbem off. There
was no personal feeling in thc mat-
tor. It came up to him and he did
•i's duty, but it whs now up to Judge

Trail Snialter H«l*»* Out tha Silver-Lea*
Mine-Owner*.
W. II. Aidredge, manager of the
Trail smelter, has Just returned from
an extended eastern trip and states
that the Canadian smelting works
will proceed at once with the construction ofa refinery at Trail ot sufficient capacity to handle the present
bullion output of the country, The
plant will be to a certain extent experimental,hut as soon as it is shown
that sufficient bullion can be obtained to insure its becoming a commercial success it will be enlarged and
extended or, possibly, another plant
will be built at Nelson or on tbe
coast.
Mr. Aidredge says that all ot the
metal markets have been most unsatisfactory to the mines, smelters and
refineries. The fall in lead and silver has affected the receipts of somo
ofthe Kootenay lead and silver mines
to the extent of $600,000 annually,
•comparing tl quotation of these metals in January with those at the
present, time. The smelters have
nlso lost heavily in buying and selling- on a falling market.
The railways and smelters are
thoroughly alive to the situation,and
while London lend remains at present
prices, they will join in making a reduction from $3 to $4 for the coming
vear in freight and treatment rates
on lead ores. The smelters are willing to reduce their charges providing
they can be relieved from the dan-
Ser of incurring further losses due to
ie decline in metals and as it is generally conceded that thc present price
of metals huve nearly reached bottom. To accomplish thi* it is proposed that the prrliiufnnrv settlements involving 90 per cent of the-
proeeeds will bu made ass nmi as the
rerraltri*/* known at tbe MM*lt-*r,"Tb->
final settlement to be mnde on quo
tations for metals 90 days after the
preliminary settlement. It is proposed to reduce the zinc limit from 10
to 8 per cent, which would mean that
on clean lead ores carrying 40 per
cent lead and over tlie total reduction
in freight and treatment charges will
be $4 per ton, while on ores containing over 8 per cent zinc tiie net re
duetion will be $3 per ton.
The above reductions in rates will
not compensate the mines for their
losses in the decline of metals from
tho first of 1901 te the present time,
but as the quotations for London lead
during tho latter part of 1900 and the
beginning of 1901 were abnormally
high, it is hoped that the mines will
tiud it to their interest to continue
operations at these figures. The
average price of London lead for a
number of years has beeu between
£12 and £13, and a reduction of $4 a
ton of ore is equivalent to $11 A ton
of lead, assuming the ere to contain
40 per cent lead and that the smelter
pays for 90 per cent. This reduction
uf $1 would mako the present lead
quotation on the basis ef 1900s rates,
£12 9s9d.
council will end their spending
money limited, the civic assessment
should be confirmed, the rate struck
and taxes collected without delay.
With tbe support ofthe school thrown
on tbo city, there is need of every
cent in sight, and judicious economy
must be the order of the dav nntil
such times as tbe citv can feel its
wsv. One thing positive, it is in no
shape to incur heavy indebtedness
for waterworks or electric light just
ytt.   Yours truly,
Eleotor.
Slocan, Dec. 81, 1801.
civic uovrhnmbnt.
Epitor Dhill;
Sir,—As ono of those favoring the
incorporation of Slocan at the outset,
I do not see much reason to complain
at tho financial statement read at the
council meeting on Monday night,
Apparently there have In en no violent squanderings, nnd tho ratepayers can sec for iht'iiiHclvr-B what bas
been done. The deficit shown is not
large, but there is no justification
for including the government refund
from real estate taxes as a receipt.
The elty has not got the money and
are not likely to—at least, not all of
it. lt would have looked bettor for
the present council to have stood
honestly by their record and shown
their full indebtedness, rather than
to cook up a flossy statement by en-
crouching on the funds of tho coming
council, llowover.they haven't done
too badly, and with the experience
gained in 1901 the incoming city
council can judge how to ran things
for 1902.
Iu the first place, there must be no
tampering with the publie franchises
nnd in the second a new lino of economy must be followed, iu order that
the citizens may gain all that la
coming to them. With the hotels ro
duccd in number, the city will have
to rulse tho licenses to tlie $-300 figure
per annum. Then the city should be
given a police magistrate, so that
something may eventuate to tho gen-
em! revenue; as also the scavenger
business sliould be assumed by the
municipality. A road tax bylaw
and n combination of the clerk's and
polieo departments would give the
city considerable money and enable
more street improvements to bo car*
ricd out.   Lastly, m the iueo*alng
OTTAWA TO SHIP.
Two Carlaad* ot" Rich Or* to ba Rent Out
THIS Heath.
Mining men eontimtt to be much
interested in tho development of tbe
Ottawa since the recent marvelous
strike therein. Up to Saturday night
the drift had penetrated the ore chute
21 feet and there was no diminution
in size, while the ore, if anything,
was getting richer. A teat sample of
the paystreak was sent to tbe Trail
smelter and tbe returns showed 1329
oz. sliver, 1) per cent copper and *
ofl per cent lead. In the 21,ft
driven the average width ofthe shipping ore is 2ft feet ar-" ♦»•<• '...-«.■. * as*
sav, the bonders assert, uow represents the value of the entire streak.
Another assay upon 37 sacks of sortings from the first class ore gave 222
oz silver.
On Saturday RE. Allen was given
the contract for doing the packing for
the property, the first duty being the
breaking of the trail to the mine.
Several thousand feet of lumber is
being taken op for the building ofa
new inesBbonse and ore shed, as the
lessees expect shortly to increase the
working force. Ore is being sacked
up daily and two carloads are to be
sent out by the 20th Inst Some of
the ore is valued at $1 per pound.
Tbe lessees bave become most enthusiastic over their holding and are
asking $100,000 for their rights.

Both Nelson papers contained estimates of the output of the mines of
Yale and Kootenay fer last year, thc
Tribune putting the value at 110,
000,000 and the Miner at $13,000,000.
The latter's figures, however, are
hazy, as, for instance, they give no
Slocan tonnage, dividing it up as the
Sloean lake and Ainsworth districts.
The Tribune's estimate and comments are as follows:
Although accurate data ia not obtainable, it is safe to approximate the
output of the metalliferous mines of
East and West Kootenay and Yale at
$10,000,000 for the year 1901. This
is a slight gain oyer tho year 1900,
notwithstanding the shutdown of the
mines at Rossland becaus j of the demand of the muckers for the same
rate of wages paid in other camps.
The mines of East Kootenay, owing
to the fall in tha prices of lead and
silver, also suspended operations
early in the summer. The losses of
Rossland aud East Kootenay aro offset by the gains made in the Boundary and tho Slocan. Close on lo
850,000 tons of ore in all were mined,
and theaggrcgate value ($10,000,OOO)
shows that the ore averaged over $12
a ton, which is a pretty good average, seeing that the ores ofthe Boundary are low grade, probably the
lowest grade of any ores in the world
profitably treated by fire concentration.   The figures are as follows:

Frank Provest came In from the

of Lemon creek, on New Year's dav.
He and J. Kadcliff, the owners, have
been putting their camp into shape
for active work. Thoy have sent up
supplies and intend to do considerable
development. The main work will
be centred on the crosscut being run
to tap the lead, which, when cut,will
open up a large amount of sloping
territory. The property has excellent outoroppings of ore, chiefly galena, and it is looked upon as a shipping proposition.

With this week's ore shipments will
end the exports for the year 1901,
sliowing a record unsurpassed by any
silver camp in the west, and placing
the Slocan City division in the front
rank of the province. While in 1900
the shipments totaled 2847 tons,being
tho highest on record, those for 1901
reached 6514 tons, making a net in*
crease of about 140 per cent for the
year. These figures cannot be accepted as final, for when tho Arlington receives Its returns from tbe
smelter, it will be found tbnt there is
a further increase. For thc portion
ofthe week from Thursday morning
to the end of December, the Arlington
shipped out 2C0 tons and tbe Enter*
prise 20, giving a total pretty elose
■there-rrre!. The, firmer has a total of 5-:si* tons for' tl,<* year, almost
double the exports for the entire division for 1900. The Arlington is
averaging close to 50 tons a day lately, every effort being made to get
the ore dewn while the snow lasts.
The prospects are favorable for an
export of 1200 tons for January, as
the Ottawa will have two cars to send
out and the Enterprise 100 tons, to be
added to the Arlington shipments.
For 1902 it is estimated the division
will ship 10,000 tons.
Last year the exports from this di*
vision amounted to 2847 tons, made
up from 10 properties. Following is

Ore from the Ottawa commenced
coming into town on Monday.
A heavy cave-in has taken place on
the Queen Fraction, below Silverton.
Two carloads of ore a day is being
handled from the Hewett, Four Mile..
The Slocan Star has closed down
tight, no reason being assigned therefor.
Four feet of clean ore is showing In
the winzo below thu No.5 drift on tbe
Payne.
The introduction of machine drills
at the Enterprise is letting out a
number of men.
Cross & Nathan, lessees of the Duplex, anticipate making a shipment
of ore in the spring.
The Slocan picked up about 120
tons of ore in two days this week
from tho lake shippers.
A dividend of $25,000has. just been
declared bv tho Slocan Star, being a
total of $485,000 to date.
During November the Ymir.mine
ran 80 stamps for (127 hours, with an
estimated profit on working of $19,*-
688.
When all the returns are in, tho
ore shipments fnr the entire Slocan
will round up close to 30,000 tons for
last year.
If ore shipments from tho lake ports
continue to increase, the C.P.K. will
have to put on the tug .Sandon to relieve the strain.
Geo. Aylwin has struck a four inch,
paystreak on the Pontiac, Ten Mile,
assays from which are upwards of 200
oz in silver per ton.
Another dividend hns been declared by the Rambler-Cariboo, being
No. 8 so paid. Regular dividends of
one per cent a month are promised
for tne future.
Two feet of solid galena, assaying
1500oz to the ton, has been struck ou
the Silversmith, one of the Slocan
Star group. The ore was encountered in a crosscut run to determine tho
apex nf the disputed vein of thc Rabbit Paw.
The Enterprise management sent
the following cable to England last

AN
HUMBLE
HERO
BY THOMAS  P. MONTFORT
■Copyria-ht. 1901 by Thomas P. Montfort
"1 don't understand tbat," Melvln
said, with a laugh. 'Tut It In plain
English, If you please."'
"Waal, It seems kind of odd that two
fellers would be seut down yere by
different companies, all at once, to
hunt for mineral, specially wben thar
hain't no mineral to hnnt for, so I
Mowed mebby your company had concluded to send a feller to holp you out
a bit"
"Two fellows sent down here! Wbat
do you mean?"
"Jest that Thar's another feller yere
besides you."
"Who Is It?"
"Lord a-massy, I don't know who It
Is,"
"How do you know he's hereT"
"Seed him, seed him wltb my own
eyes."
"WbenT
•"Today.-*
"Wherer
"Right yere."
Melvln began to feel uneasy. He
didn't like tbe Idea of another tuan
coming there claiming to lie a prospector for mineral*-. It didn't bave tho
right look, ind It smacked of something wrong.
"Did he tell you bis name?*' be asked.
"Be told me a name," Turner replied.
"A name! Do you tblnk he didn't
tell you his own name?"
"Lord a-massy, how can 1 tell? You
fellers come down yere an say yonr
names Is so an so, an how do I know
whether you're tellln tbe truth or
whether you ain't?"
Melvin blushed and eyed tbe old man
keenly. Sucb talk made him suspicious. Then he was not easy about
tbat newcomer. He wondered If Turner bad beard something to arouse his
suspicions. Wben one is In continual
suspense, It requires but little to alarm
him. Quietly enough, however, Melvln
asked:
"What name did that man give your
"Walte-W-u-l-t-e. He spe.Med It out
for me. Said he belonged to the tlrm
of Walte & See."
"Walte&See!  Humph!"
•That ain't your Arm, 1 reckon."
"No."
"Don't know nothln "bout 'em, I
guess."
"No."
"Quare name for a firm, ain't It?"
"Rather."
"That*a wbat be aaid It was, though
I asked blm bis name, an be snlsi
'Walte.' Tben I asked blm wbo In
worked for, an be said 'Walte ft See.'"
"Humph! Wbat kind of looking man
was her'
"Putty slick lookin feller—sorter
young, sorter tall, sorter dark, sorter
slim nn sorter clean shared. 1 mought
'a' found out more 'bout him, but you
know I'm pow'ful backwards 'bout
askin questions an 'peared like he
didn't keer 'bout answerln wbat I did
ask."
"How came he to tell you that he bad
come down bere to prospect for minerals?"
"Wby, we got to talkln an runnln on
•bout one tblng an another, an I up an
mentions 'bout you a-bcln yere, an he
asks all 'boui you an 'bout whnt you
was <loln yere. When I says you are
yere a-smel'in round for mineral, he
says, Thi'n I reckon I want to meet
that man seeln's we're both on the
same line of business.' That's Jest
bow be come to mention bis object In
comla .yere."
Ms*: in was silent a long time and
deep!, thoughtful. Tbo coming uf that
stranger annoyed and worried blm.
Turner's description of the man,
though vague and general, suited very
mnch to the deserlptlon of one he did
no' care to sec, tbe brother of the
man whose llfu be bad taken.
The claim of the stranger that he,
too, had come tbere to prospect for
mineral rondo bis appearance all the
more alarming to Melvln, for no one
knew better than Melvln that no capitalists were going to waste money la
useless prospecting In tbat section.
That claim would do very well, he
thought, to fool tbe natives with, but
no one wltb ordinary business sense
would believe It for a minute.
He waa half Inclined to leave tbe
Ridge at once, and hud It not been for
Mrs. Ranks be would bave done so.
Hf felt that even at the risk of bis life
he must remain tbere until be lind succeeded In gaining one more Interview
with her. Strange how weak a man,
strong In all things else, can be when It
comes to woman and love! By and by
Melvln broke the silence by saying,
"You said that man waa here today,
ao I presume he is not bere now?"
"Lord a-massy, no! No, sir-eel ne
wanted to atop, but we bad no place
for blm 'less we put blm to sleep wltb
you, an we 'lowed we'd best not do
that, seeln's you are so doggoned par
tlc'lar."
"I'm glad you came to tbat conclusion," Melvln replied, "for 1 certainly
ahould bave objected to abarlng my
bed wltb any one else."
"That's the way I flggered It Too
aeem to be 'bout as squeamish ao ex-
actln as the feller that stopped down
to Squire Hwaou's oncet Ever bear
'bout tbat chap?"
"< Jiu*ee not"
"Waal, sir, be was a gopd un shore.

Uot mad 'cadse tbo bed fell down with

It wns nil Jest n accident nn you know

didn't satisfy him. Next uinrnin he

he was eatin breakfast a cat jumped
ou the table an snatched the ment

Squire ketched the dad burned cat an
took the meat away from It an put It

rally that he done all anybody could
expect of him, but he fouud he was
mistaken. Feller, 'stld of thankln
squire, i-'ai-eil up an said he wa'n't goln
to stop nt no slch place. Squire, In
eo'se. feels hurt to be talked to that
away after all his pains to please, so

he charges tbe teller a dollar an tells
him to git. i'ow'ful unreas'nable sort
of a chap, tbat feller was, wa'n't he?"
"Very."
"Hut that's way of some folks. No
matter how much you put yourse'f out
fer 'em, they ain't goln to be pleased."
"Yes; that's true. But about tbat

Tap Sampson, coming down the

dressed In musty black leave his bouse
as he approached and walk away In
the opposite direction. Her bead was
bent, and her altitude and movement
gnvo unmistakable evidence thnt sh<
was In deep trouble.
As Tap entered thn yard Mrs. Sampson nppcarcd In the open front door, a
look of troubled anxiety on her wrinkled, homely, but kind old face.
"Mlrandy." Tap said eagerly, "wa'n't
that thu wldder Maun that jest went

Mrs. Sampson nodded.
"I thought It wns," Pap went on,
"though I wa'n't clost enough to see

ain't they?"
"Thn pore critter's In a peck of trouble," Mrs. Sampson answered.
"I'd say't!" Tap exclaimed thoughtfully. "Humph! All nlong of whnt
folks are a-sayln of her an Sim Hanks,
I reckon."
"Waal, It's along of that, Pap, but
not 'bout that exactly. You know sho's
got a piece of wheat down on her farm,
an It's ripe and needs cuttln."
"Waal?"
"An It 'pears lack sbe'd made a trade
with Sim a good spell ago to cut It for

"She did. Mlrandy. I was a witness
to the trade, an I mind It well."
"Waal, now, becus of all the talk

"Why, 1 wonder?"
"Becus be says If bo did It'd give

"An It would, too, Mlrandy; It would

The   Eaay   Stewnril   «nd   IUe   Andis-
cloaa 'Hi rn ft or."
A man walked int.) one of the up
town college clubs one morning and snt
down In the smoking room. His illr of
assurance wns hardly In accord with
his tattered clothes. It was early, and
noue of the members was nbout. He
rang the bell, aud tbe steward responded.
"lt seems good to get back Into the
club again," lie remarked,
"Yes, sir,*' ntid the steward.
"I used to be a member here, but I've
had hard luck and can't afford it any
longer."
"Yes, sir; I'm sorry, sir," said the
steward.
"By the way, I'm a little short of car
fare this morning," said the nervy
stranger. "Could you let me have ten
cents until I call here again?"
Tbe surprised steward renched Into
his pocket and handed out a dime.
"Thank you," snliTthe man. "Now,
I'm also a little hungry, having had no
breakfast. Do you suppose you could
gather me up a little luncheon?"
The steward wus stupefied by such a
display of nerve.
"And n littlo whisky with a dash of
bitters would not go badly with the
food."
Tho steward fled as one of tbe members entered. Tl.. stranger saw tbe
new arrival and rose hastily.
"I am too early for my friend." he
said as ho walked toward the door.
"I will return later." Then ho added
In an undertone, which tbe doorboy
beard: "Too bad, too bad! That steward was easy. He'd given me the club
If I'd asked for It It's a wonder those
members wouldn't stay away." The
man of nerve walked down tlie street
w'.tb his head bowed In deep thought.
"How to get that luncheon without
paying for It" was his theme.

CATHERINE ll.'S RULES.
The rules, lntcrlbed on a tablet now
In tbe Hermitage, tbe famous St Petersburg Museum of Art are as follows:
I. Leave your rank outside as well
as your bat and sword.
II. Leave your right of precedence,
your pride and any similar f*aellug outside tbe door.
III. Be gay, but do not spoil or gnaw
anything.
IV. Sit, stand walk as you will.
Witbout reference to anybody.
V. Talk moden.tely. not loud, so ns
not tc make tiie heads or ears of others
ache.
VI. Argue without anger and without excitement
VII. Nelthe- sigh nor yawn, nor
make any one feel dull or heavy.
VIII. In all Innocent games, whatever one proposes, let nil Join.
IX. Eat whatever Is sweet and savory, but driuk with moderation, so that

",'p-iever offends against rule X shall
nev . i „ain be admitted.
Our grunde dame will call these rules
her Ten Commandments.
The  Tirrapln   Disease.
Tho terrapin is thought to bave much
Influence In canning rdeknese, nnd the
terrapin disease Is either a rheumatic
affliction about the chest and ribs or
possibly some pulmonary trouble. The
association of lhe terrapin with diseases
In this i.rtlon of the body doubtless
originates from the fact that thc ribs
of the terra;lu nre not free, as In the
case cf nost of tlie higher animals, but
are united Into one piece.
An Ind Ion who wns ill applied for relief to a shn-iiari and wns naked, "Did
yen not when a hoy tie strings to the
terrapin's tall nnd worry the creature?'
Tbe patient admitted that he did.
"Well," said tho medicine man, "that
Is what Is tbe mutter. It Is tbe terrapin's turn now, an.l the terrapin Is paying off old scores. You have the terrapin sickness, and all your ribs bave
grown together and to your breastbone."
The shaman administered the proper
.remedy prescribed In sucb cases—I forget what It was—and the man thought
he was cured.
Doing Hla Beet.
In tbe early morning 1 went to the
postofflce In an Alabama town to Inquire for mall, but found I was linlf
an bour too early. I was walking away
when the colored Janitor wbo was
sweeping out called to me and asked:
"Was yo' procrnstinatln' around yere
arteryo'r mo.il, sab?"
"Yes, but I seo I'm too early."
"Yes, sab, tuo airly. An' was yo' a
stranger In dis town?"
"Yes."
"An' hain't yo' no one to talk to?"
"No."
"Den, sah, If yo' don't keer to eliminate about de street fur half an bour
yo' can stop right yere, an' I'll do my
best to considerate de reciprocity of de
Bltuashun an' make yo' feel to home!"
A Civil  Word.
A French king once said: "If a civil
word or two will make a mnn linppy,
ho must be a churl Indeed who would
not give tbem to him." If this feeling
wore acted on, how much happier Iht
world would be! We may say of tli!**
kindly temper tbnt It is like llgutllip
another man's cunilie by one's own
which loses nono of Its light by whs.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, why don t
you try them ?"
Thesu words were addrt*ssed to Mr.
Amdrew Gardiner, o Smith's Fells.
Ivy a fris-ml when he was in the depths
of d.spondency regarding his physical
condition. For three years he bail
sulferi'd so much that life had bocomo
a t>uideD to him, and oftentimsM he
savs hs almost wishe-d that he might
die. Then he spent miserable dnys
aii.l aisieplaoi nights, now be is enjoying life. Then his feet, hands ur.d
limbs Were sUf and swollen and he
waa toniu-ntod with a constaat stinging, creepy sensation in his body
which gave him no rs*Ht day or night;i
now he is as supple as ever he was,
wilh the stiffness, the sws'lling and
the creepy sensation all gone. He
attribute*! it all to the use of Dr.
Williams'   Pink  Pills.
Mr. Gardiner is a man of about 65
yeara, aa old u_d highly respected
resident of Smith's Falls. Having
heard a good deal of talk about tne
improvi-ment effected in hiB health by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, the Record
sent a reporter to ascertain the exact
truth and Mr. Gardiner told him s»b-
st-untinlly what is related above, lie
said that he tried a number of doctors—as good doctors as there were
in the country—but got no relief. He
was given to understand that the
trouble wns caused by bad circulation of the blood, but nothing did
him any good. He could not wear
boots, his feet were so swollen; and
vhen he tried to walk his legs felt
like sticks. Finally ho was induced
to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a
trial, He took six boxes, he said,
but did not see that he was much
better. He determined to quit taking thi'iii, but was persuaded to continue tbem for a little while longer.
\Vhi*n hs* had taken ten boxes he was
gieutly improved, and when he had
taken twelve boxes he was so well
that he did not need any more. It is
several months since he has token
them and he has had no return of
the trouble. When the reporter saw
him he was wearing his ordinary
boots and he said he could get into
and out" of a buggy as well as any
man of his years in the country.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
friend 0 thc weak and ailing. They
surpass all other medicines in their
tonic, sir,ngihs'ning qualities, and
mako ws'ak and despondent people
bright, active and healthy. These
pills are s*»ld by deelera in medicine,
or can be had postpaid, at 50 csmts
per box, or six boxes for $2.50. by

THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES.
One  of  Ihe  Ancient  Sertn   Wonder*
of the  World.
The anclenta succeeded ln making
that alloy of copper which Is known aa
bronze. Among the seven wondera of
tbe world was the famous statue, wholly made of bronze, historically known
as tbe colossus of Rhodes. It represented Fhoebus, tbe national deity of
tbe Rhodians. It was begun by Chares,
a pupil of Lyslppus, the sculptor, and
was completed by Laches 2.S8 B. 0.
The popular belief Is that It stood
astride the barbor of Rhodes, tbat It
was 105 feet high and that ships could
easily sail between Its legs.
I'liuy said that few men could clasp
Its thumb. It was cast ou metal plates,
afterward Joined together, and thla
process occupied twelve years. In the
interior was a spiral staircase reaching into Its head, and In a great mirror
suspended to Its neck were reflected
the coast of Syria and the ships sailing
to Egypt.
After It bad stood for sixty-four
years this colossus was overthrown by
an earthquake, and Its remains lay on
the shoro for 923 years—tbat ia, until
A. D. 672—when they were sold by tbe
Saracens to a Hebrew dealer. The
original cost was 800 talents—say, *|G,
000,000—und It Is not too much to say
that a aimilnr image might be cou-
atructed now in one-fourth of tbe time
and at one-third of the original cost.
Rhodes, by tbe way, must have bad
colossus on tbe brain, for Pliny relates
that tbe port was adorned wltb 1,000
colossal statues of the sun.

CANADA   AT  PARIS.
AN I'X'HO OF THE GREAT EXPOSITION  OF 1900.
Mr. J. (*. Jardine, Canada's Commissioner,, Tells an Inters-sting Story
of the Splendid Rs*ults Obtaimd
By 1 he Uso of a Canadian Remedy.
Toronto, Dec. 0.—(Special)—The
(-real World's exposiUon hs*ld in Paris lust year saw very many visitors
from all parts of the globe aaeeffib—d
in the ffsiy French capital. Canada
was will represented, both as an exhibitor among the aations and as a
visitor, many of our best people hav-
Ine; attendsd.
The inters-sls of thc Dominion were
looked iifH-.- by a very capable and
Intelligent company of patriotic Canadian**, among whom one of the most
conspicuous was Mr. J. ti. Jardine.
of 80C Crawford street, this city.
Mr. .lursline's duties as Commissioner
entailed a vast amount of hard work
which made great d.'mamls on his
physical  health  and  strength.
Ho is authority for the statement
that he found Dodd's Krdnoy Pills,
that bi'st known of Canadian medi-
cines, invaluable as a tonic during
these trying times. lie says : "They
relieve backache instantly and tone
up the system generally as nothing
else  ssi'ins  to  do."
While in Paris Mr. Jardine introduced Dodd'a Kidney Pills to Mr.
Duptlls,    the    esteemed    and   popular
Secretary to   tha Canadian Commia-
sion who. was feeling unsler the
weather, with the very happiest r»
sults to that gentleman.
By healing und stlmulatmg thokid-
Dodd's Kidney Pills prove absolutely th.. very bs*st tfsnis* known to medical wlensv today, and bot'h Air. Jardine end Mr Dupuis were greatly
ploasotl to find that their own fair
country, so distinguished in ninny
ssttier ways, was through this great
tonic remedy earning in Europe a
glorious reputation  in niidical  ltiii«.
Very few Canadians are awnre of
the world wide rs*putation of Dodd's
Kidney Ptdnsy Pills, and many who
have bcon abroad sc*?m surprised at
being able to purchase their favorite
nisdicine almost aay where in the civ-
li/cd world.

DADY'S HEALTH.
The   Teething  I-eriod  Dangerous   to
Little Ones and Very Trying
to Mothers.
What mother does not look forward with dread to the time when
baby shall be teething ? At that
time baby is restless, feverish and
irritaitle, and frecjucntly there is
some disorder of the bowels and
stomach. The poor little sufferer is
lighting ono of his first battles in
this old world of pain, and if not
aided in his fight may be overcome.
Every wise mother helps the little
sufferer as much as she can, and the
mothers who have been most successful in this respect have found that
Baby's Own Tablets give just such
assistance as tho little one needs.
Mrs. W. J. Wright, Brockville, says:
"I have used Baby's Own Tablets
quite reqnently, and am much pleased with them. I find them especially
satisfactory during baby's first year.
I have used them in teething, in
vomiting, in colic, in iredigs'Stion,
ansl in the disorders of the stomach
and bowels usually accompanied by
restlessne?* and fever. The action
of the Tablets has always been all
that could be desired."
Baby's Own Tablets are a sweet,
pleasant little lozenire that all children will take readily. They can be
crushed or dissolved in water und administered with safety to oven the
youngest infant. ('uurantoi*d lo contain no opiate or any of the poisonous stuffs that make the so-called
soothing nuxiicinsfl dangerous to little oni-s. If you do not find Baby's
Own Tablets at your druggist's.

Wc want no croakers, knockers,or
back cappers in the camp during
1902. The Lord knows we had an
all sufficiency of the scourge in 1901.
Judge your neighbor's prospect as
.'you would have your own spoken of.
If you do there, will be a peach of a
time in the camp this year.-  She will
.be a hummer.
With three large dividends paid
last week by as many properties, the
Sloean again demonstrates that good
.•money can be made by the operation
■of silver-lead mines.
Great expansion .wa*; achieved in
,tho  camp  during   1900  and 1901.
There is no reason why it should not
be continued in 1902.   The prospects
are exceedingly bright,
Kootenay and Yale have made a
.brave record in ore shipments for
1901, tlio estimated value being put
at $10,000,003 or over. No hope for
the croakers in those figures.
The Drill never rubbed elbows or
.swapped Sunday school tales with a
prophet, yet it ventures to predict
that $150,000 will be paid in cash this
year for properties in the camp; that
ore shipments will reach the 10,000
.ton mark; and that certain works
will be undertaken tending to place
the burg on a much higher plane of
prosperity than it now occupies.
Trees are judged by tho fruits
thereof nnd mining camps by their
-ore shipments. Taking the results of
.the Sloean City division for the past
two years, tlie dry ore belt is in the
.fust class. Talk is cheap, but it is
-the tonnnge that convinces. The
year just started will have a pleasing
tale to unfold in this respect, as shipments are certain to reach the 10,000
ton mark.
The financial statement presented
: by Clerk Foley at the council meeting Monday night was an encouraging one, and demonstrated clearly
. the advantages gained by the town
through incorporation.   The revenues for the partial year were greater
.thanexpected, enabling tbe council
.io meet all the expenses incidental to
incorporation, pay salaries, purchase
supplies and fixtures for the municipal departments.and to partially pay
.for the building of sidewalks. It will
be seen that the receipts embrace a
considerable sum of money for real
estate taxes still due from thc government, but that money is uncertain and not likely to yield above 50
per cent of the estimate.   Tbere Is a
small deficit shown exclusive o*' this,
and with the estimated refund added
the deficit would be ln excess of $600.
Still, tbe city has not had to borrow
any money, as the  liquor licenses
just paid wipe out the deficit and
' leave a handy balance.   To offset
the expenditures, thcro are the new
sidewalks built, the little fire hall
and supplies, and the furniture, fixtures and supplies in tbe citv hall.
Now, this  is an  excellent record,
fully substantiating all the claims
and assertions made by tlie advocates
of incorporation prior to last June.
In addition incorporation has con
.served to the welfare of the citizens
all  the valuable  public franchises
such as waterworks, electric light,
etc. These in themselves would have
been cheaply acquired were the dof-
icitrcal rather than apparent and
were it ten times ns large.   Judged
in the light of these things incorporation has been no failure.

RECORD OFFICE FIGURES.
Last year's registrations at the local government office present a reduction on the statement shown in 1900.
But there are saving features in connection with them making the situation a great deal better than it seems
There is not the same scope here now
for prospecting and working miners
do lot require licenses, so a reduction
in locations and licenses issued is explained. The reduction in assessments is compensated for by the
quantity and lasting nature of the
work done in 1901. On the Other
hand, a true index as to the progress
made in the equip is given in the
crown grants issued,which increased
from 15 to 26, while the transfers
jumped from 192 to 2GG. The figures
for 1901 were:
