KSrorgnnlisatlon Meeting Ha'ld Lait Friday Uyenlng.
Pursuant to call a public meeting
was held in the citv hall, Friday evening, under the auspices of the board
of trade,H. R. Jorand being chairman
and II. D. Curtis secretary. Owing to
the fact of so many of the members
and officers of the old lioard having
removed Irom town, it was decided to
re-organize the body, which was accordingly done, with these officers:
President, A. C. Smith; vice president.
John Anderson; see.-treasurer. H. D,
Curtis. These three with T. McNeish
ami D, Arnot will comprise the cxe-
eutiu' committee.
Mr. Jorand explained the reason of
the meeting, which wits, in brief, the
increased freight rates imposed by the
C.P.R. on freight consigned to interior
Kootenay. It was necessary now to
gather all tho available data on the
subject, and to back up the other
towns in laying the proper complaint
before the railroad commission. Short
talks were also given by Messrs. Dick,
Curtis, McVannel nnd McNeish, the
latter stating that Kaslo and Sandon
had appointed Air. Qiegerioh to act
for them before the commission.
On suggestion from Mr. Dick, the
executive were empowered to appoint
a delegate to act with the boards of
trade in other towns. The executive
was next instructed to draft bylaws
for the re-organized lxiard, membership to whieh was set at Sl per year.
The secretary was ordered to gain the
consent of the members of the old organization to turn their books an.l
fund; over to the new board. The
meeting theu adjourned till Friday,

Citizens Decide on Holding Aportl on Ct.1)
of September.
Slocan will celebrate Labor Day
Sept. 6, and all tho towns in the country aro invited to join in and make the
event a huge success. Two years ago
Labor Day was celebrated here and it
was the best alTair of the kind ever
held in Kootenay, but this time the
citizens are laying themselves out to
go one better.
On Friday evening the idea of celebrating was mooted at the board of
trade meeting, resulting in a public
meeting lieing called for Tuesday
afternoon. At that time an executive
and canvassing committee was appointed, consisting of T, J. Baty, A.
Stewart, H. A. Hloka, M. Lnveliund
A. Madden. In the evening a general
nieeting was held,when the committee
reported subscriptions received of
$.')lti, which have later been increased
to $(500. T, McNeish was appointed
permanent chairman and D.B.O'Neail
secretary. Several talks were made
on the celebration and much enthusiasm was evinced.
The programme of sports so far
drafted out is an attractive one. A
drilling contest for substantial prizes
will be held, football tournament for
•S75 championship oup,baseball match
for handsome challenge cup, rifle
match between Sloean aud New Denver, general Caledonian sports, foot
races, bicycle races, ami a ball in the
evening. Each one of these events
will carry good prizes, .sufficient to
attract outside talent.
Steps have been taken to have all
ihe Labor bodies of Kootenay join in
ih" celebration, with every prospect of
success. The C.P.R. will assist the
committee in arranging special train
ami boat services from all points, with
corresponding low rates.
AlimiHt .1. Drowning.
Nelson nowsgatherers seemed to
have slijiped a cog last week, ns no
mention was made by them of what
might Inn*' been a drowning accident
a few miles from that town. The wife
and children of a well-known citizen
of ihe county town are summering on
the lakeshore. One day last week two
of the children, a boy aged about six
and a girl aged two. were playing at
the water's edge. The latter ventured out too far and the water swept her
off her feet. Her screams hurriedly
brought ihe mother to the rescue, but
before she could   reach the child, tli''
little boy had rushed in and grabbed
his sister as she went under. He
dragged her to shore and. as she was
choking, he pounded heron (he back.
Upon Iii- mother asking him why he
tlkl that he replied: "Well, didii't I
tell Mm she was choking, and when 1
pounded her lots ot clear water oame
up out of her mouth." Undoubtedly
the boy's prompt action saved the tot's
life. Such forethought is remarkable
in oue mi young.

The Midwinter
Knight Errant
By CLINTON DANGERFIELD
Copyright, 1901, by J. B. Mitchell.
-o
"Ye* will be after flntllu' 'cm split
Into klndlln' wood some day," said
Nora maliciously, regarding Ilnm-
mish's treasured blocks with nn evil
eye. The position of general slavey In
a cheap tenement does not Improve
one's temper. "Do yez tlilnk yez can
be kecpln' a mess of chips to piny wid
•when we all do be sufferiu' crool for
coal?"
"Don't know nuffln' 'bout coal. Don't
care," retorted Hammish sturdily.
Five years old and gentleman unafraid
was he.
Presently he bethought hlm to visit
bis special friend, the little seamstress
on his own floor. Concealing the precious blocks, he trotted ort to her room
and, getting no answer to his knock,
pushed open the door nnd went boldly
In.
• Why had Mntila let ber fire go out?
He snuffed the biting air doubt fully,
.wondering where she was. Then he
discovered her in n drawn heap on tlio
bed. The thin blankets woro huddled
over her. On top were piled her threadbare Jacket and the wrapper she had
been making for a firm,
j Hammish went to the bedside.
' "Is you 6lck, MaldaV" he nsked petulantly.  He did not like sick people,
The girl opened a pair of great violet
eyes and regarded hlm.
"Not sick," she said slowly; "Jest
cold. I'm freezin' to death. It's taken
■o long I hope 'tis come at Inst!**
"Does freezin' to death mean you
goln" to die?"
"Yes." The blue lips scarcely shaped
the word, but he caught it. It distressed him greatly by virtue of knowledge newly learned from tho resourceful Norn, who had been trying to
frighten the child with stories of
■death's grim paraphernalia, lie seized
ber shoulder in his baby hands nnd
tried to shake her.
"Don't die!" he cried piercingly.
"You said Jack was comin' home to
marwy you! How can lie niarwy you
If you ls dend? Do you fink ho would
dig you up?"
"Oh, Hammish," said tlio girl very
faintly, "please go away! It will be
long, so long, before he conies. I cannot live till then. And tliey told me
there was no more work after this.
When Jack comes tell hlm I wasn't
ufrntd of—the grave. It must be warmer down there."
Conscious that he was growing very
oold himself, Hammish, fired with a
sudden resolve, made fur the battered
coul scuttle, He would make a tire
himself.'
For if Jack came home nnd hnd to
dig .Mnida up might he not hold him
(Hammish) responsible? How often
Mnida hnd told him proudly of her big,
warm hearted sailor who was coming
across the great seas.
"And I was In no such place as this
when he knew mo and courted nie,"
she would say more proudly still.
"Mammy nnd 1 hnd n little house of
our own." Then with n droop of her
tired lids: "But when she died after
beiug sick so long it was hard, so bard,
to make broad. You dou't know how
bard, little Hammish, but it will bo
your turn some day."
"Don't cnre," Hammish wa.s wont
to reiterate scornfully. "Will take my
turn all right.   Shall be n man."
But now he felt vaguely that n man's
responsibility rested on him long ere
be hnd looked for it, for tho buttered
scuttle was utterly empty. Tliere was
nothing in the pitifully bare room out
of whieh the tiniest lire could be made.
In his search he lifted the failed curtain which covered the box termed a
pantry. Not a fragment of food was
within, lt dawned on Hammish that
If thero wns no food ns will ns no
conl Mnida might be hungry. Again he
attacked her Imperatively.
"Has you eat you dinner?"
'  "Oo nwny, Hammish," repealed the
girl.   "How could I eat?   'ihere-wns
•-nothing."
Now, Indeed, the puzzled knight errant faced a complex sit nation. His
mother, the deus ex lnnchiuu who always remedied nil wrongs, would not
return until sunset. How long did it
tuke people to die? Would Mania
Kally die beforo his mother's return
Just because she was cold? (if wlmm
could he take counsel? He knew uo
one but his enemy, Nora.
Hu waylaid her lu tho corridor.
"Oh, wait!" he cried.   "Please wait!
How long dues It tako people to
frocno?"
"No time nt all," snld Nora scornfully, "ye little fool, yu'."
"And thon"-
"Then they dig a cellar of a hole an'
■lap 'em Into It!"
She whisked on down the corridor,
and Hammish went wenrlly to his own
quartern and stood before the Ore
thinking.
Kor he wns now facing tho great
problem of self sacrifice which ail of
us meet sooner or later, Either he
must burn his beloved blocks or Mald.1
must freeze. Either he must warm
his milk for her by the block Uro or
Xlnlihi must go hungry. If lio did these
two deeds, Ik* WOUld lose his playthings nnd his supper.
Tho girl tm the l.ctl took no heed of
passing   time.     Slit*   was   in   the   Inst
sleep before death, which the fro»l
king fills wiih exqulstto inlrngo.
Then something troubled hor, A vol :o
Wns Calling, calling, insistently, angrily, nnd with the voice floated a smell
of something burning, Then n shrill
wall made her opon her eye i In earnest
She sut up tu discover Hmuralsli danc*
Ing frantically iirotjnd a Qre of blocks
In tin- Jt-dte, on which boiled a tin cup
of milk, now running over the edge.
"Dweadful smell, isn't it?" ho
shrieked excitedly. "Come quick! Hurry!"
She stumbled out somehow —the
child must be attended to*—and presently found herself swallowing the hot
milk Hammish manfully forced on
her. It brought new life to her veiins,
and she understood the miracle of the
tire and food.
"Oh, you darling!" she wept, clasping hlm closely.
Hammish tore himself loose.
"You are cwyln' nil over me," ho
said, with masculine disapproval. "Was
the milk too hot in you' stuunnlck?"
As they crouched together by the fire
they did not hear u knock at the door
until it wits twice repeated.
Then it was Hammish who shouted
"Come in," Hammish who faced the
stranger and Hammish who yelled
shrilly with pleasure ns he discovered
the sailor uniform and saw the little
gray parrot perched, falconwise, on
the sailor's wrist.
The knight errant stood with feet
opart, as though the deck heaved under him, and shouted triumphantly:
"He's done come—an' you won't have
to be dug up neither."
A magical hour followed, for those
foolish two under Ilnmmlsh's eyes for-
got everything but each otlier. He had
the gray parrot nnd the stranger's
pockets to himself, being given permission to explore them, while the Are,
extravagantly replenished, shot up aud
crackled gnyly.
To the strange things his investigations produced tho brown hnlred
seamstress paid no attention, for the
golden dream of lovo wns reality—the
hoping, the faithful waiting, bad not
been lit vain. And when love must put
nslde human despair ln order to enter
bis own kingdom ho becomes radiant
with a beauty tbnt those who have not
endured much for bis snkc never see.
Next morning Hammish ate his
breakfast with great gusto, for a big
basket of various fruits was in tho little pantry nnd he himself was allowed
a huge yellow orange.
Norn helped clean off the table, coming ln for a share of fruit, nnd then remarked crossly:
"Be nfter remcinberin* to kape yer
ould blocks out of my way or It's burn-
In' cm I'll bo."
Hammish swallowed hard. One solitary tear splashed on his pinafore.
They nre burnt n'ready," he said
with stern dignity, for he felt bitterly
that this was Nora's triumph.
"It's lyln' you be," retorted Nora.
nere nt least ho could prove her
wrong. He threw wide the play cupboard door, entering to confront her
dramatically with Its drear emptiness.
But, oh, miracle! From the ashes of
the burned blocks had arisen such
cubes nnd squares ns he had not deemed possible. Ho saw from his mother's
smile that thoy were his—all bis!
With a shout ho sorting nt them, and
Maida and Jack were forgotten na
swarms of soldiers manned new forts
or thronged to wild nttack.

AN IDEAL FISH.
Mohawk Cliubii Are Gracefnl, Slim

There nre In some clear, cold streams
of the north certain fish known locally
us "Mohawk chubs." These lish aro
the ideal tish in shape nnd color-graceful, slim, elegant creatures, pure silver
exeept on the dorsal ridge, whieh Is tho
tint of oxidized silver. They nre tender mouthed and remind me somewhat
of the grayling, although they have not
the great dorsal Un nor the fragile
mouth of that lish. They often Inhabit
trout waters, nnd I have tin Idea that
trout feed on tho smaller ones, although 1 have no absolute proof that
this ls true. I know, however, thut
pickerel, niuikellunge and black bass
strike at them eagerly.
Theso lish rise to a tiy nnd nre often
quite as gamy as grayling. Often nnd
often 1 have struck them in trout waters and have found them Interesting
fighters when tackle is light uud water
cold uud swift.
Animals and birds nppenr to be very
fond of them, or nt least are often seen
effting Ihem, perhaps because they may
be easier to cateh than trout. Whero
Mohawk chubs ure, herons nnd kingfishers congregate. The only timo I
ever saw an osprey In that region was
onee when whipping that stream. Tho
osprey dashed down within n rod of
me and seized 11 Mohawk chub that
must have weighed a pound at least,

BUCHAREST.
Vlie Capital  of  noamanlii  I* •  flort
of Mininiiirr Paradise.
Though ull Bucharest is modern, we
find the old eastern methods of mercantile construction-little open cupboards lining the road, dealers squatting nmong their wures, literally Bt thc
receipt of custom, for they make DO
effort to invito lt, and the various
trades huddle together, here nn nrinory
of rude pottery, richest green nnd richest red; thero nil arsenal of thick
Icutliern snmluls, n heavy patch of
burnt umber; yonder nn avenue of
blnck sheepskin cups set out upon brass
stunds, in appearance like peasants'
heads nfter a masaacre, Out in tho
streets ure high hillocks of golden
grnln, pyramids of pumpkins nnd blazing piles of scarlet chillies. At intervals little congregations wait with
laughing philosophy until they Rhull
be hired—builders with their hods, laborers with their spades, ull wtth the
emblems of their toil. Bucharest may
bo summed up ns n city of pleasures
and palaces, a metropolis of perpetual
carnival, a temple of boisterous joviality. Her engaging people combine tho
color, the grace und the hospitable Instincts of tho enst with the comfort
nnd convenience of tho west. Every
Instant spent nmong them yields n
quintessence of lifo nnd Joy nnd
warmth nnd color. A small l'aris indeed'.' Nny; 'tis n little paradise.—Herbert Vivian in Saturday Iteview.

It is nut tin uncommon thing in this
sge of advancement in Industrial and
engineering matters for the present
flay engineer to assume that he knows
much more than his ancient brother,
und while this is true in many things
it frequently happens that uu invention or appliance commonly believed to
belong to modern times la found to
have beeu known and used centuries
ago.
Hopes made of various kinds of fiber
and leather are of very ancient date.
Hopes of palm have been found ln
Egypt lu tho tombs of Ueul llassan
(about 3U00 Bi C.J, and on tho walls of
these tombs Is also shown the process
of preparing hemp. In a tomb nt
Thebes of tho tiuie of Tholuies III.
(about ltiOO 11. 0.) is a group representing the process of twisting thongs of
leather and the method of cutting
leather into thongs. The Hiblo tells
us that Samson was bound with ropes
nnd that the spies sent by Joshua Into
Jericho were let down In a basket,
presumably by means of a rope.
At Nimnul, Assyria, a carved slab
showing the siege of a castle was
found, on which a soldier was represented iu tlie net of cutting a rope to
which a bucket for drawing water
from a well outside tho castle walls
was attached,
The wire rope Is generally considered
a modern invention, a product of modern skill, and It will surprise many to
learn that Its manufacture Is reully a
rediscovered lost art.
Although the Assyrians practiced the
art of wire beating, no evidence has
been found to Indicate that they used
Wire for making rope.
The excavations at Pompeii have,
however, brought to light a piece of
bronze Wire rope nearly fifteen feet
long and about one inch ln circumference. This rope is now In the Museo
Borbonico at Naples, it consists of
three strands laid spirally together,
each strand being made up of fifteen
wires twisted together, nnd Its construction does not therefore differ
greatly from that of wire ropes made
today, Pompeii was buried a. D. 70,
1,X*.!5 years ago, but how long wire
ropes had been known it ls impossible
to tell, though, judging by the knowledge shown in the construction, it may
be safely concluded that they had been
known for a considerable time. The
uses to which these ropes wero put uro
not definitely known, but further excavations may shed somo light ou the
guliji'i't.
As to the uso of rope tramways, It ls
said thnt they were In use as early as
10-H.
Marriage nmi tVnee Fuming.
Professor Billion N. I'atten of the
University of Pennsylvania advances
a new solution of the social problem.
This is that nmong the i pie earning
small wages the wife shall continue a
wage producer alter as before marriage, lie is reported as saying in a
recent lecture: "The whole social problem would bo solved were the wife to
become an Income producer. Of course
1 refer to the young married couples,
where each before marriage is earning between $10 and $12 a week. I
believe that each should continue a
Wage earner until the husband's Income increases to nt least $20, when
the Wife can add more to the utility of
his money by withdrawing from the
wage producing class."

TO COUNT BY EIGHTS.
Suel.iy For the Propagation of the
Octininl (System.
A soelety Id ubout to be formed in
Eut'lnud for the propagation ot what
ls called the oetluial system, or counting by eights.
Thu most naturnl to multiply nnd
divide is to double or halve, lt la simplicity itself lo tnke ono apple (or anything you please) nnd multiply it by
placing another by Its side; you multiply ugain by milling two more, and so
you go ou doubling. In the nume way
you divide by halving.
Now, in the decimal system lt ls not
possible to do anything so neat ns that.
You must get to your unit, or base, of
ten, and it ls Impossible to do that by
the simple process of doubling the low
figures. You cau certainly halve one
Inr the same way as in the new octimal
system, but if you take ten you get
down to two nnd a half very soon—a
very broken figure-and It gels worse
ts you go lower.
Not so with tbe eight It was contended by its opponents that the process of dividing or multiplying by simply shifting tlie point ls not possible.
In decimals, thirty means thirty, but
3.0 means three, which is an easy method of dividing by ten, but how would
this be in the new enumeration7
To this the octimallsts reply that the
figure of ten Is quite arbitrary, that thi
most natural figure is eight and that If
We had been taught to fount by eights
we should have experienced no dilti-
culty.
Iu that ease thirty would lie equal to
twenty-four, while S.O would be threo,
as at present. Further—and this is
where they think they score—.3 would
be three-eighths, not three-tenths,
which they stigmatize as n very dim-
cult division to obtain naturally.
It Is all very well lylicn we have it
marked out for us on" a scale, but Just
think of the difficulty of splitting nn
apple into ten equal parts nnd then
compare that with the simplicity of
obtaining eight parts by merely halving!
Supporters of the decimal system sty
that the human hand was the basis of
calculation, tliere being ten digits, but
octimallsts point out that there nre
only eight fingers; that the thumb ls a
special part of tho hand.—Pearson's
Weekly.

As escargots, or snails, aro not much
eaten in this country, the discovery
that artificial snails are made will not
worry American epicures. In Paris It
Is different. Public knowledge of this
enterprise came about through the suit
•f a Paris workman against his employer for Injuries received in manipulating a machine for fabricating snails.
It ivm explained that the employer
bought empty snail shells from the
dust men and ragpickers. Having
cleaned out the Shells, the defendant
and his people filled them with "111011"
- that is to say, lights, or cat's meat.
This soft, spongy stuff before being
crammed Into tbe shells was cut into
corkscrew shape by very improved machines. When the shell was tilled sonic
liquid fat or grease was poured Into it,
and tho trick was done. The fabricated
snails wero sold usually nt 'JO centimes
the dozen.

Especially during the teething period, children are subject to eczema,
scald head -and various forms of skin
disease, which cause tha keenest suffering to themselves, as well as anxiety to their parents.
There is no treatment so successful
as Dr. Chase's Ointment, and as eczema always tends to become
chronic and last for years, prompt

of Dr. Chase's Ointment, as lt certainly effected a prompt and permanent cure.
Mr. Wm. Klrknoss, farmer, M«.

Dr. Chase's Ointment is the best

CELESTIAL  REFrVcSHMENT9
Action   of   the   Kitith   t'pon   Bodies.
Years ngo, when the bodies were removed from the Cimetlere des Innocents at Paris,  the common pits ln
which great numbers of the bodies had|
been Interred together were found to
contain   masses   of   a   gruylsh   white
soapy substance.   The matter wus not!
very well understood at that time, but |
it is now known tbnt the remains of
the dead nre under certuln conditions
transformed Into such a material, either wholly or in part, which has been
named "udipoeere."   It Is a true am*
nioniucnl soap, being a combination of
fatty acids with ammonia.
Bodies that arc exposed to the action
of water percolating through the soil
nre most npt to undergo this species of
transformation. Inasmuch ns udipoeere ls not perishable ender ordinary

THE BLOCAN DRILL,
Slocan, B. C
FRIDAY, JULY 1Mb, 1904.
KDITOMIAL   CKOFl'INGB.
Canada's surplus for the year ending June 30th was approximately $20,-
000,000. Less than that would redeem
the townsite of Slocan from the appending tax sale aud build tho projected sawmill for tho O. S. Lumber
Company.
An evidence that the town is not
dead is the decision of the citizens to
celebrate Lalxn* Day, for which a
large sum of money has beeu collected
for distribution in prizes. A cordial
invitation is extended to other towns
to join iu the celebiation,for a general
#ood time is promised.
Profiting by experience with the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway, the dominion government will pass a bill
prohibiting the employment of aliens,
professional men or otherwise, upon
government works or works subsidized
by the government. It is one thing
for the Liberals to pass a bill,but they
lack in courage to enforce it—the
Alien Labor Act to wit.
Chief Justico Parker, of New York
state, has been nominated by the
Democrats to make the race for the
presidency of the United States, in
opposition to Theodore Roosevelt, the
Republican nominee. The Democrats
have juggled with their platform, in
order to relegate the silver issue to the
background. With both candidates
supporting the gold standard, Roosevelt will win out hands down. Democracy has proven unfaithful to the interests of tlio common people.
The probabilities are that the d *>-
million elections will be held this fall,
nominations falling, it is believed, the
latter end of October. Strength is
.given to the belief by tho fact that the
king's printer is distributing voters'
lists to tho members of parliament;
also by the sudden activity in political
circles. The time is opportune for the
Liberals—-anticipated bountiful harvest on the prairies, healthy financial
surplus for the year just closed, and
the closing of tlie Grand Trunk Pacific deal, all tending to give the party
confidence. Conservatives will enter
the contest better prepared than in
the last contest. They have got to
undorstand and know their loader,
and the party has bocomo united
and cheerful. They will make government ownership their main issue,
and upon that they take a determined
•stand, permitting no ambiguous declaration to weaken their cause. Ample protection to the manufacturing
industries is also in their catalogue
nnd, should tliey lie elected, assuredly
that issue will be put iuto effect.
The manufacturing Interest! rely upon
the policy of the Conservatives and
will lend them their full influence.
Recent bye-elections in tho east have
all gniie against the Laurier government, cither in thedefeatof their candidates or iu the ciittingdown of their
majorities. It Is unusual for bye -elections to go against a sitting government, and when they do it is a pretty
clear indicntion tlio public have lost
faith in their rulers. Such then is the
basis of Conservative confidence and
they will shape their afTuirs according-
