Ssiccessfsilly Tries! In Denver,
A new process for this treatment of
ores has been discovered and the machines therefor patented. Briefly
Correspondence read: Prom City statwl lll() method consists in bringing a mass of ore particles into contact with a statically charged metallic
Surface, Sueh particles as possess
relatively high Conductivity tire instantly repelled while those of low
conductivity uro not repelled until
sullicient time has elapsed to allow
them to In: pulled out of their original path and caught in a separate re-
ceptacle, thus effecting a separation
from the conductors.
For a considerable period prior to
the issue of these patents a machine
had been in successful operation in
Detiver, working on miscellaneous
ores, and in many cases with notable
results. This machine has since lieen
simplified and compacted and the details improved until it is now doing
satisfactory mill work.
It is found bv experiment that most
of the sulphides and many of thiol her compounds of valuable metals
possess high conductivity, while the
gangue consists largely of non-conducting material such as quart/, lime,
etc. There aro exceptions on both
sides : The compounds of zinc for example, are non-conductors, thus allowing a separation to tie mads* between
pyrite, galena and ehalesipyrite on the
one side, and zinc blend on the other,
with no preliminary roasting, dryness
lieing the only requisite. Magnette
a ud pyrrhotito may also be separated
from blend.
Solictor •lorand.-stnling that the council had full power to pass an early

been passed.
Aid. Arnot gave notice that next
week he would bring in au early closing bylaw.
Aa argument ensued upon the question of raising the first $1000 required
under the mill aid bylaw, the mayor
holding that next year's council ought
to raise the money, as it fell due on
April .5, 1904.
Tlit* solicitor was uncertain on the

Ko-eoiiHlslei-Tlsi'li*' Action.
A wave of indignation has swept the
province against the Ottawa government for making no provision in the
tariff to benefit the silver-load industry, and protests by the wholesale are
lieing wired to the capital. On Wed
ncsdtiy the local board of trade held a
meeting to discuss the situation, resulting in the following telegram being sent to W. A. Galliher, M.F., and
Hon. Mr. Fielding.minister of finance:
"Board of trade, Slocan, deprecates
indifference of government on silver-
lead question and strongly urges reconsideration of subject, in order to
give relief asked for by mineowners."
Work at Use Enterprise.
The operations at the Enterprise

McGuire are proceeding in a satisfactory manner, there being now 18 men

work is seen in the 20 tons of ore sent
out this week to the Trail smelter, to
lie followed next week by another carload. Tho ore is being taken from

Kendall and Brenda watched her lu
silence for a moment while the professional nurse, who hud remained iu attendance, adjusted tbe shades upon tbe
electric lights.
"While she sleeps," whispered Bren

"For Mr. AldenV Yes," replied Kendall.
"What did you tell ber?"
"We said that he had sent ail sorts of

constant reports from us, but that she
must not ask lo see bim before tomorrow."
"Did sbe plead to see blm at once?"
asked Brenda.
Kendall hesitated fora moment while
they were passing silently out of the

"Well?" rejoined Brenda. "Please

"You have something more to say."
"It occurred to me," said Kendall

"I did not Buy thnt," responded Kendall. "It was her manner that struck

"She seems as unaffected and impulsive as a child." said Brenda. "1 can

"That Is precisely what she did not
do." said the doctor. "Let nie tell you
just what huppi'iii'd. When she was
brought to the hospital, she was unconscious. For certain reasons we
took her to the room where she now
Is. though tbut would not have been
the ordinary course. While I was
making my lirst examination of the
wound she began to revive, and 1 believe that Bhe regained the full command of ber faculties withlu a few
minutes. It Is uot always possible to
suy Just wheu a patient's mind becomes effectually clear, but I am perfectly sure that Miss Miller's was wide
a.vake some little time before she
chose to let that Tact appear.
"You must remember that we overestimated tbe gravity of the wound
and Indeed were expecting tbe worst
at any moment. Considering the nature of tbe case, It was Important to
question ber Immediately. I asked
ber wbo bad Inflicted tbe Injury, and
I know that sbe beard and understood
mo as well as you do now, but sbe
mado no sign. After ber tlrst view of
tbe place, wblcb sbe must bave recognised as a room tn a hospital, she
closed ber eyes, and I think It must
bave been a matter of five minutes
before Bbe opened them."
"Thinking," said Brenda, "thinking,
thinking.   Poor child!"
"Though sbe ls obviously abnormally
sensitive to pain," Kendall continued,
"she bore wbat bad to be done wltb tbe
fortitude  of a  Christian   martyr.    I
made up my mind after awhile that a
miracle bad protected ber and that she
bad a chance to survive; therefore 1
ceased to ask questions, deciding to let
ber take her own time.    Wben  sbe
spoke, It was not In reply to me, and
sbe seemed to address no one.   'I am
going to die,' sbe said, and then Bhe began to cry very softly, as you saw her*
a few mlButass ago.   I replied that 1 did
not tblnk so, but she shook ber bead,
murmuring something about tbe grief
of ber mother, wbo could not come In
time to see ber.   I asked for tier mother's address and was Informed by a
police sergeant wbo bad Just been admitted to tbe room, coming under orders from  Captain  Neale,  tbat  Mrs.
Simmons, tbe landlady, bad telegraphed to Mrs. Miller.
"The sergeant tben came lumbering

notebook and a pencil. Witbout wait- |

Kendall and Uremia watched her in si
lence for a moms'iif.
Immediately re-entered the room by
tbe eastern window. She neither saw
nor heard any one. Beyond a confused
memory ol' a sharp aud terrible pang,
sudden,unexpected and probably meaningless, because the mind is darkened
before tt can comprehend, shu can recall notblng. Tbere was very little for
tho sergeant to put down lu his notebook."
"Did be believe her?" asked Brenda.
"Yes; I tblnk the sergeant did," replied Kendall, with a Blight emphasis
ou tho noun. "At least tbo only Indication of doubt be gave me was to ask
me In tbe corridor afterward whether
thc wound could bave been self Inflicted. I told blm to dismiss the idea, and
he seemed to have no difficulty in doing so. It Is not, at tbe Urst glance, a
physical Impossibility, but practically
It Is precisely tbat"
"Suppose sbe should say that she did
It," said Brenda.
"Witb apologies to Miss Miller," responded Kendall, "1 must tell you that
that would not affect my opinion In
tbe least If she bas any desire to
shield the guilty, sbe cannot do ll lu
that way."
Brenda's keen gray eyes searched the
physician's face.
"Do you believe tbat?" Bbe demanded
"Frankly," said Kendall, "my opinion Ib that Miss Miller knows perfectly
well who did tbis deed."
"And her motive for concealment?"
"I leave that to h**r own heart." was
tbe reply. "Yet ii would seem that
there could be but one."
"A motive of the heart," said Brenda.
"Do you realize tbat tbls amounts to
an accusation?"
'Then let us not speak of It any
more," said Kendall. "Let us get back
to Mr. Alden."
"We bave already done bo," she Bald;
but tbe doctor would not be drawn
Into sucb an admission.
"After the police officer had gone,"
he resumed, "Miss Miller asked me
whether a note addressed to ber bad
been found In ber room. I answered
yes, and then she Inquired whether
Mr. Alden bad been Informed of ber
misfortune. Fearing to excite ber, 1
Bubstltuted for the troth the fiction
that I Just outlined to you, and my
poor little patient merely sighed. She
did not ask wben sbe could see Mr.
Alden nor mention his name again
in any connection."
"From wblcb you Infer"—*
"Nothing whatever," Insisted Kendall.
"Yon do not trust me." said Brenda,
not without bitterness. "You believe
Mr. Alden guilty of tbls frightful crime,
and you dare not say so in my presence for fear that I may not be discreet aud you may be put Into an unpleasant position."
"I could scarcely be put Into a position more unpleasant tban tbls one,"
said Kendall earnestly. "I want to
tell you the exact trutb about—about
everything that I know or Imagine,
aud It Is deadly hard to do It when
you look at me us If I were nn enemy.
This Is as near as 1 can come to an
accurate expression: Miss Miller's manner convinces me that she Is shielding
the assassin, and tbere Is no known
reason why she should shield any one
else than Mr. Alden."
"But why not take the perfectly easy
alternative that she is telling the
"I will," said Kendall, "If you wish
mo to."
"I am very serious," said Brenda.
"This Is a promise you are making?"
"It Is," replied Kendall, his face
flushed and his voice not quite steady.
"it ls my word of honor given to you,
and bo twice sacred as the word of
a friend," be added. "You were good
enough to say that we were friends
two years ago."
"I have better cause to say It now,"
she replied. "Let me hasten to prove
my sincerity ln the usual way, by burdening you with a confidence. You
must be wondering at me."
"Why?" I
"Because I am here."
"It Is a flue tblng," said Kendall
earnestly.   "So much I know."
"I will tell you more." rejoined
Brenda, "and lt will make you tblnk
better of Mr. Alden. Tbls tragedy of
today Is a revelation to me, but not of
tho kind tbat you suppose. Mr. Alden
had not concealed from me tbat bis
heart bad been won away, but I did
not understand. Ho told me of Miss
Miller's existence two months ago, but
I would not bear all he wished to say.
He Intimated that he bad begun to regard her with feelings tbat made his
engagement to me dishonorable. I
viewed bim with pity," snd Brenda
laughed very softly and witbout mirth.
"I was so Incredibly Ignorant of everything outside my own sphere that I
could not Imagine tbe existence of
sucb a woman as lies now ln that room
out there.
"Clarence aaid she waa an actress,
and be looked at me as a majt npon
tne defensive, i ean soe hlm now. I
pictured a siren, a creuturo grotesquely
unworthy, appealing to his wild and
reckless nature witb tbln artitlces
that would be clear as glass to him
when be should view them with a dispassionate eye. Truly, I was only
sorry for blm, ashamed of him a little,
yet very anxious to help blm. It seemed to me that breaking our engagement would be the very worst thing
that could happen to him, and so I refused to consider the woman at all.
One meets men in society, Dr. Kendall, whose well known ways of life
have an unfortunate tendency to pervert women's Ideas ln sucb matters.
We admit tbe existence of certain persons whom we see In the park wltb
elegant equipages, but we cannot consider them aa rivals."
"But surely be spoke of ber with
respect," said Kendall.
"Absolute." replied Brenda. "but*l
thought blm tbe more a fool. He said
one evening, I remember—and It was
only a very short timo ngo—tbat Miss
Miller cared notblng for blm and never
would. 1 was merely convinced by bis
sincerity that tbe woman was pluylng
a deep game, and I swore by such gods
as I have that 1 would save him from
ber. And so It went on until last evening, wben bo sent me a note wblcb
mado it Impossible tbat our engagement should continue. It was only a
frank, honest statement that bis heart
had passed utterly out of bis control.
I can see now that he could have done
no better, but I did not take the right
view at tho moment Perhaps it was
because I had heard that day for the
first time tbat Mr. Alden's engagement
witb me was of the highest Importance
In bis business affairs. If he had allowed It to continue for tbat reason-
But be had not It was really all my
"However, to continue, I went to his
office today because I was Impatient,
and I told him tbat the engagement
was at an end. Tbat was ln ten words.
And tbe loss of me, Dr. Kendall, affected blm so little. He was obviously so
wrapped tn an Impenetrable happiness
tbat I lost my temper for tbe first time
In a good many years and cut short the
Interview. Ob, we were perfectly courteous to each other, and when we parted—most unromantically, with an elevator man rattling the catch of tbe
door to make me hurry — we shook
bands upon a vow of friendship. But
I was ln a shameful rage as I left tbe
"I went up town as far as the shopping district and wandered aimlessly
In the stores. Then I got upon a street
car, preferring it to tbe loneliness of a
cab. And so It bappened tbat a newsboy thrust tbe story of this crime Into
my face. Tbe paper was wet from the
press—printed and upon tbe street within balf an bour after tbe discovery of
the crime. A reporter must bave been
right upon tbe scene by accident and
have rushed to his office Immediately.
"Let me confess my own folly. In
tho very first Instant I feared that Mr.
Alden might have struck the blow. It
wns sheer madness. I was overwrought by tbe excitement of tbe afternoon, and, remember, I then pictured
Miss Miller aa a desperate and scheming woman, one whose real nature was
likely to be revealed to Mr. Alden In
an Instant by an unguarded word.
What mad scene might follow, who
could say? There might have been
some sort of struggle. Sbe might have
turned the knife against herself, meaning to strike blm. Impatience smothered me. I must know nt ouee, and,
besides, I bad a deadly longing to see
her—to see the woman who had wrecked a life tbat was dear to me and lost
her own In doing It
"My Urst awakening was In her
room. There imb something of herself
tn It Afterward 1 came here and
heard that old man In tbe office Bay
'the child.' And tben I saw her, with
Indescribable surprise, even after such
preparation as I bad bad. Her rival?
I am not so vain. Why did I not see
her before? And the Idea that Clarence Alden could have lifted his hand
against a creature so pathetically beautiful that Bhe must appeal Irresistibly
to a man so strong as he Is utterly
monstrous.   You can't believe lt."
"You are quite tight," said Kendall.

Historic  Conflagrations.
A list of great cities burned would be
a list of nearly all tlie great capitals of
the world. PersepollB, the splendid residence of a long series of rulers whose
tributary provinces extended from the
Indus to the Hellespont, was burned,
with all its palaces and temples; Babylon and Carthage were bo utterly destroyed that their very location has become a matter of doubt. Rome was
burned eight times, Jerusalem four
times, and, though they rose from their
Tht second temple la not like the first.
Athens, Syracuse, Bagdad, Alexandria und Antloch now exhibit only a
shadow of their former grandeur, Tlie
Phoenicians, like the Sparttins and Assyrians, disappeared with the ruin of
their capitals, but the most fateful conflagration recorded In the history of
the world ls perhaps that of Moscow.
"They talk as if the fate of Europe

Man More Mqald Tban Solid.
Every fiber and every cell that enters

That our bodies contain a large

manner by the blisters which rise after

in these days of progress and competition
id man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
