An eveni of material interest aii'l
import to this division transpired last
wqek, W.C. BJ. Koeli having secured
an extended lease on the Enterprise
mine, on Ten Mile creek. The lease
will nm till December .TL I906,and
will cover the entire mine. For the
pa--! six nioiitlts or mi, Mr. Koch has
had a lease on the upper workings of
tho mine, but aimed to get control of
all and has at last succeeded.
ll is the intention of the lessee to at
nn: c erect a new messhouse.to replace
lhe one destroyed last spring by a
snowslide. When completed the fores
at the mine will be increased to 7n
men, nnd this number will be permanently employed. A systematie course
of development will be commenced.

were of the value of £5,438 0*40, which
was a considerable Increase over those

of silver bv the United States government for tlu* month of September represents $1,907,468, The coinage for

amounted to R22,540,42l), imports be

who had held his funds in trust under the guardianship of his father.
The banker was at his desk, and wns
glad to seo him.
A few passing remarks upon the
topics of the day, and Pnul broached the subject of especial Interest,
"It has ell been fixed, my dear sir,
in most proper manner," said tho
banker, "anil we shall be happy to
honor your draft, or to do any other
business you may favor, us wilh."
Without exposing his entire ignorance of what had beeu done, Ite led
the banker to tell the story, frnm
which it appeared thnt his father
had taken all legal steps necessary to
the transferring of the entire control
of the funds to him.
"Your, fnther wus very precise and
methodical," remarked the bsn'-er
"He wished us to understand that he
cluimed no more authority, nntl
nhould assume no further responsibility. He said you were lo be henceforth your own man. 1 didn't know-
but that he would finish the joke by
informing us that he should pay no
more debts of your contracting."
The broker laughed, and Paul tried
to respond in like manner, though
tho effort was, on tho whole, a failure. He learned, however, that the
original deposit of twenty thousand
dollars had grown to be thirty thousand; and after this ho managed to
smile quite naturally. Dut he was

Witn Christine lor his wife he could
procure a comfortable, cosy homo a
little way out in the country, and
live upon the interest of his money;
and, under, the inspiration of the
thought, he snapped his lingers, and
hummed to himself a verse of "Begone, Pull (.'nre." But the ebullition
wus not lusting. Ho grew more BOb-

behind him, not so much with fear of

"What is It, mnrs'r?"

While he snt wilh the letter in his

"But," urged Pnul, "you ennnot

it's mighty strange, to suy tl:o least,

"Paul started, and his whole frame

The gardener was very guarded
and deliberate In his answer.
"I don't think, sir, tluit your fnther would have done anv thing of the
kind—that Is, not knowingly; hut
how far he might lend, a sort of
winkin' help, you ran judge better
thnn  I."
In tho ond. I'aul resolved to enlist
the aid of (he polite. He culled upon the chief of police, gave him nn
explanation of tho whole matter, and
asked what could be done toward
finding Christine. He made no complaint; he usked only that the girl
might bo found.
And wo muy hero remark .'.ist how
UU ci the olliiers found. They learned
that a close carriage drawn by two
horses, huti icon driven away (rem
the Brooksido on the night of Christine's disappearance, and that ii
hud gono o\cr the Tmnont rond i.t-
to Boston. This the.v learned, uini
nothing more, for they hnd no olew
by which  lo diicit even  n  suspicion.
Meantime, however, came one who
brought now and peculiar qualifications for. the scutch, and though sho
came iits a stranger to .lohn Downey,
he hesitated not lo trust her. As for
Lora, sin? welcomed lhe helper with
superstitious awe. It was the old
woman called Endora who hnd np-
peared upon iho scene, und l.ora

bowed to her mistress, Whence the
respect she felt for the aged waif,
she could uol Loll; she knew only
that her heart yearned  toward her.
ll was on the day following the
first visit of tho police detectlvo that
Endora arrived nt the cot, and learned what hud transpired, she listened patient!*** to Loin's Incoherent
narratlvo, nnd then she beard 'in'
moro  comprehensive    expounding     of

the departure of the hack en the
night of Christine's disappearance;
and she furthermore arrived at ih"
fun that gravel hod been found up
on tho floor of the piazza on the
morning succeeding, as though feet

After this, Endora cume bluntly

Prom this point Endor made strict

It was an Ideal May. At one of the
biggest houses In London u ball was In
progress, The small hours hnd como,
und out over the tops of the trees lhe
moon was shining. In the park n ninn
nnd u girl were sitting out dance after
The mun wns of courtly presence and
splendid physique, with fnee clean cut
ns a cameo, red gold hair ami pointed
heard, wondrous even there ln the half
light, nnd blue eyes thut fell before neither man nor woman.
In low, passionate tones he was
pleading with the girl nt his slde-
pleadlng ns strong men only plead for
life or love. But to nil the fervor of his
wooing she was adamant.
"Vou do not love me, Blanche," he
cried ut length. "You have only been
playing with me."
"Ah, Hex! What a lifetime of regrets nnd loneliness I should be saved
If I did noC"
He caught her In his arms, ruining
hot kisses on her cheeks and lips.
"My love! My life! How can I persuade yiui to forget everything but Our
love for each other and marry nie?"
"Why do you tempt me? Wby do you
love me? Why have we ever met**"
She half freed herself from his embrace and stood, her bunds on his
shoulders, scnnnlug his face.
"Heaven only knows, since you Insist on parting again," he nnswered.
"And yet you say you love me."
"I do love you with till niy heart anil
soul, Bex. my prince of men, my king!
Bul how eau I marry you? Would you
have your people say you had brought
them a country girl, a commoner, a no-
body, from over the sen? In what disaster would the royal marriage end?
No, no, my Bex. Our dream ls over
tonight. We have come to the parting
of the ways. Go bnck to your throne
ami wed a woman tit to tie your mate—
a princess. Antl I—the memory of this
May madness shall go with uie to the
grave, and no wan shall call me wife."
"Before God, Blanche, I will uever
marry any woman hut you! There Bhull
be a llfcloug troth between us If you
will have nothing else."
He drew a ring set with blazing diamonds from his own finger aud slipped
It on hers.
"Send It to me, darling." he said, "If
In the years to come you repent tonight's decision, and I will he at your
side as fast as rail and boat can bring
me. Antl send It tj ine If tlie great
summons come first to you, ami it
shall bo buried with me, for love of a
peerless woman."
He bent bis handsome head nud kissed her again.
"I have no Jewel to give you bat k,
Rex," she whispered, "only this Utile
'MIzpah' ring—'The Lord Judge be
tween me und thee wheu we are absent
the ono from tho other.' "
Klio raised her lips lo his for a last
caress, and he kissed the teardrops
from hor eyes, too, before he led her
back to the glare of the ballroom and
the scrutiny of a score of pairs of Jealous eyes nmi the murmur of a score of
envious feminine tongues, ".She has refused hlm, the little fool."

Now thnt he was gone to his long
home and the prodigal far off In a foreign land Blanche lived nn at the old
country house with the nunt who tin
years previously had chaperoned her

Suddenly that lady looked up from

"Before Cod, Blanche, 1 will never

He had forgotten her. then. Even a
king could forge! his vow.
She put away her sewing presently
and went up to her owu room. Out
over the woods, yellow green In their
young leaves, aud the distant sea,
shimmering sapphire, the siinshlue
swept In a Hood of gold. The birds
twittered a hundred glad songs.ami the
scent of the lilac and hawthorn hung
on the uir. But she heard nothing save
the memory voice of her king lover's
pleading, saw nothing but his diamonds on ber hand— diamonds Hint
mean constancy! Aud he was about
to tlo as she had urged hlin—marry another woman. Ah. well! When the
Princess Klovla was queen of Stervia,
she would put awoy his love pledge
The days crept on, snd the weeks,
and now aud then a paragraph appeared lu the papers unent the forthcoming royal wedding. It was brought
to remembrance that King lies was
the handsomest ruler In Europe. The
Princess Flavin was said to be beautiful ami accomplished, 'i'he names of
the bridesmaids were announced and
the clergy who were to otlltiate, and
then came the entire programme of thu
great event
Illanche read It all through as though
it were part of a dream, in Imagination »he saw her own name In place
of that of Princess l'hivla. It might
have been. Vet not once did she repent her dceision of that fateful May
night. She still believed that to have
yielded io her love and married hlm
would have lieen the grtatest wrong
the could have done hlm.   Aud *n his
wedding morning dawned in that Iran*
rjuil country spot, anil Blanche Drum*
mond'S left bo4d was minus Its blaze
of diamonds, she wandered out into
thu garden Ibat morning, restless and
agitated anil, sitting In a tiny summer
house beneath a big lilac tree, fe'J
s musing while the hours passed, am!
by and by the glare of the noonday
sun warned her t.> return to the house.
As she ucared the garden gate the
vicar was passing on the road outside,
nmi mechanically she panned to speak
to him.
"So .von hnve returned, Mr. Wil-
loughhy. Have ton completed your
business In town satisfactorily'/"
"Thankyou, yes." he answered, "Ami
I feel like n giant refreshed by these
few days lu London—one drops Into
such a rut, forever In thc country.
Of courte you have not heard this
morning's newsV"
"No. What has happened?"
"The king of Stervia. who was to
have been married today, you know,
was found dead iu his bed this morning."
Wltb a choking cry Blanche reeled,
ami before Ihe vicar could reach her
she lay faint uud prone on the graveled
path. For hours nlic passed from one
lit of hysterics to another. The doctor
Raid her ucrven were completely unstrung, ami the slunk of the vicar's

Tbe worthies of Wordsworth's village in the lake country of England
had their own ideas of his value as a
mnu and a poet. When questioned
after hit death as to hla personality
tliey readily admitted thut he was kind
to those who were in sickness or need.
They could count on him on a pinch.
But he did not hobnob with bis neighbors.
"He did not notice them much," said
au old man in answer to questions
nsked by the author of "Lake Country
"A Jem Crow and an auld blue cloak
was his rig," continued the old ninn.
"And ns for his habits, he had noan.
Hirer knew him with a pot 1" his hand
or a pipe 1' his mouth."
After deep probing the author brought
"Yes; Wordsworth was fond of a
good dinner at times If you could get
hlm to it. That was the Job."
Then the poet's aloofness was sgalu
touched upon.
"Ho was forever pacing the roads
and his own garden walks and always
composing poetry, lie was ter'lile
throng In visitors and folks ye mun
ken at times, but If ho could get awa'
fra them a spell he was out upon his

From the mountains of Camden, Me.,
comes n story of a .Philadelphia merchant who has a summer cottago ln
that village and who wished to exchange a lively horse which he owned
with a French Canadian who bad a
more gentle animal, which women and
children could drive. The Frenchman
was willing to trade, but for some reason Insisted upon repeating to the visitor that the local horse did uot "look"
ns well as the one belonging to tha
Philadelphia man.
Au exchange satisfactory to both
parties was eventually made, and the
tirst time the visitor's Wife took the
new horse out for a drive she discovered tbat tbe beast was as blind as a
mole. A few days later, wheu the rus-
ticator met the Frenchman, bo said:
"See here, you rascal! That horse
you swapped with me for mine was
stone blind. Why didu't you tell me
of lt at the tlnieV"
"Ahni bin try tell you all Ali'in bin
know how fer to tell. Ali'm bin say my
horse was no look lak you horse-— say
so seez, nine tarns. Ah'ui no bin blain'
eef yon  no hear me."

Tho effect of wind upon trees Is powerful. Even the presence or absence
of forests may be determined by the
character of the prevailing wind or the
conditions that modify it. The wind
acts as a drying agent, giving u special
aspect to many plants. When it ls almost nlways from lhe same quarter
tho plants show greater development
upon one Bide. Trees are smaller on
tho windward edges of foreuts, and
trunks and branches are bent to leeward. Tho deformations are most marked near the sea or ln tint regions. The
cherry, plum, walnut, black poplar,
nsh and certain pines nre very sensitive to the wind, but mountain plucs
ami certain tirs offer great powers of
resistance, nntl these are recommended
for reforesting wind swept lauds.

"Tho reading of history ts liko a pill-
It needs the sugar coatlug to make lt

The Pnrolloa of? a Dream,
One evening Victor Hugo wus dictating lettors to bis secretary. Overcome
by fJtlgue, the great man dropped into
a slumber. A few moments afterward he awoke, haunted by a dream
which, as be thought, had extended
over several hours, nnd he blamed bis
secretary for sitting there waiting fur
him Instead of wakening blm or else
going away. What was bin surprise
when the ' bewildered secretary told

The lli-d Sen,
Hero is nn Interesting theory: Wbat
made tbe Red sea red? Tho blood of
locusts. Read n few lines from Exodus: "And the locusts went up over
nil the land of Egypt and rested In all
tbe coasts of Ugypt; very grievous
were they. Before them there were no
sucb locusts as thoy, neither after
them sball be such. For they covered
iho face of tbe whole earth, so that the
land wns darkened. And tho Lord
turned a mighty strong west wind,
which took the locusts and cast theni
Into thc Red Ben. There remained not
one locust In all the consts of Egypt."
The Red sea today is 110 more red thun
any other sea. Its reddening wus temporary.

Tlie Dominion Parliament has prorogued, after the longest isession on

The senate passed the Grand Trunk

All the Worrying ovor the political
situation In British Columbia is apparently boing done by Grit sheets, ns
the' cpiill pushers on papers of Tory
complexion appear to be remarkably
complacent and cheerful. It is just
possible, too, that the troubles alleged
to be besetting Premier McBride nud
his colleagues.hiive their origin among
those with whom the wish is father to
the thought.
The great wave of prosperity which
has been sweeping over North America for years is beginning to recede.and
numerous financial wrecks are making
their appearance in the United States.
First came tho huge shrinkage in
stocks, amounting to millions of dollars, whereby many a niata once rich
became poor. Next came the strand-
ing of hanking institutions throughout
the country. Antl now has come the
Inevitable blow to tho winking classes,
he the manufacturers begin to find
demand falling short. The railways
antl other big employers of labor have
lately discharged tens of thousands of
men, and the number of unemployed
U daily growing greater. Withwin-
ter at hand ami eatables high in price,
untold misery will result. Canada,
however, is as yet going forward on
the wave, and it looks as if prosperity
would continue for the next year at
leant. Still, the danger of a collapse
is always present, and it i.s a wise man
who sets his house in order against
the dav of evil.
A striking comparison between Old
Country management and local sagacity and shrewdness is afforded by the
conduct <>f affairs at the Enterprise
mine, on Ten Mile creak. Acknowledged to possess one of the most continuous ami richest bodies of ore in
the province, the mine, after soveral
years'operations by an Esglish company owning it. and the erection of a
line mill, compressor and tramway,
was given up as a bid job and a complete failure. A local man, in the
person of W.C. E, Koch, thought
otherwise of the mine, r.nd demonstrated his belief by Inking a lease on
a portion of the ground. He made it
pay, and now he has gone a step farther aud hus obtained control of tin*
entire property for a number of years.
And he will make it pay, too. .Mnny
mure uion will be given steady employment, new life will be put into
the camp, nnd money will be made
for the les-ier and the company, The
contrast between companv mismanagement and n lessee's careful judgment is marked, bul the results are
appreciated by tho ramp generally.
Mr. Koch is noted for his push and
enterprise and ho merits all the sue-
, cess coming to him. He pays gootl
wages, use** his men white, and enjoys
their confidence and esteem, During
the lifo of his lease on the Enterprise
mine, it in Dafe to say Ten Mile creek
will experience n measure of prospor
