A special meeting of lhe oity ooun-
oil wns held on Friday evening, for
ili>' purpose of I'-jconBidering tin* dratl
ofthe agroement recently forwarded
to Hi" Ontario Slocan Lumber Co.,
relative to the e tablishmenl of a saw
mill here. The call was due to the
receipl ofa private letter by the mayor
from one oi the company touohing tho
proposition In question. Those pres-
enl were: Mayor York, Aid. Smith,
Worden, Barber und McCallum.
Mayor York oxpiaiued thusituation
and how necessary it was tothewell
being of the oity to get the mill located here without further delay, He
deemed it highly advisable to eliminate all clauses from the agreement
thai mii-lit tend to !>.• n stumbling
block. The expenditure of $100,000
li.'i'i- would 1).' ii great thing for the
citizens andany town woidd be proud
to have suchan undertaking established in it.- midst.
The company's original proposition,
the draft ol the agreement irom the
city, and the may*_"H private letter
were then read, A two hours' discussion followed and Beveral alterations
were made in th.' agreement, on the
lines suggested in the letter. They
embrace: starting "f work on the mill

the situation so:
"Thomas Jones, representing the
Lanyon Zinc Co., of iola, Kansas, who
has been in the Sloean for tbe past two
weeks looking for zinc ore, reports that
the prospects for establishing a trade
are excellent, The grade and character of the ore is perfectly satisfactory
and the only matter that requires to
be arranged is the question of freight
rates. A tariff of $10 is spoken, of from
Sandon to Iola, and if sueh u rate can
be secured several hundred tons per
month will be shipped to the Lnnyon
smelter. The negotiations for a rate,
which are now going on with the Great
Northern, are likely to be concluded
within the next week or ten days.
"Tie-properties which are capable
of making an immediate production of
zinc ore are the Ivanhoe, the Sloean
Star. tlv Lucky Jim, the Nooiulay.the

JUST as the Bowsers hud finished
dinner the grocer's boy handed
tn a gallon jug, and as the cook
pulled tbe cork aud found the
contents to be molnsses she reported
tbat some mistake had been made.
"There ls no mistake," replied Mr.
Bowser. "I ordered tbe molnsses ns I

"But how did you happen to do that'.'"
askeil Mrs. Bowser.
"1 am going to pnss n homelike evening, and to belp me do lt I am going to
make some old fashioned molasses candy. I have been longing for Home for
months past."
"But you can buy nny amount of It."
"Not the kind my mother used to
make. You can buy n compound tmule
up of glue, molasses, coffee grounds,
lalerutue  and  shavings,   but   I   dou't
want that sort. I never think of the
old farmhouse without thinking of mo
lasses candy. Mother used to make a
kind thnt one could uever get enough
of, and I "im sure 1 can turn out some-
tb'ngjust as good."
""You'll only muss up the kitchen and
"make the cook mad," sighed Mrs. How
"I shall muss up nothing, and the
cook won't get mod. I think she will

and saw that tbere was fun abend nud
pat down to wait for developments.
"I am sorry If I hurt your feelings,"
said Mrs. Bowser after a time, "but it
never occurred to me to connect setiti-
nieiit and molasses candy. There are
eongs about boyhood and pear trees,
elder mills, babbling brooks and all
that and 1 don't know why they

Mr. Bowser walked to nnd fro am'
looked at ber, but as she said no more
be finally desceuded tlie stairs and began to work. Tbe cut followed bim.
and as ahe saw him poking up the tire
nnd pouring the molasses into a kettle
ibe walked around and gurgled to tier-
self. When the Jug hnd been emptied,
the kettle was pluccd on the stove, und
Mr. Bowser eat down with a big spoon
In band to stir tbe contents und call up
old recollections. There were more
recollections thnn stir, and ns a eon-
•efjuence Mrs. Bowser soon got the
scent of scorched molnsses. She didn't
feel it her duty to make nny Investigation, however. Kven when the kettle
euddenly boiled over nnd n great cloud
of smoke swept across the kitchen nud
il pM a Irs, causing Mr. Bowser to cough
and tbe cat to sneeze, she aiude no In

"That's as It should lie." he musi*d
ni* lie stirred away. "Tbere wns ul

mother wns making candy. Thnt smell
'hI'-m me bnck to the dear old slays,
und I feel as If 1 could eat the whole

In ten minutes more he saw them
rising to tbe surface ami poured the
contents of tho kettle Into u pan to cool,
In a dim wny he remembered thnt his
mother used to put In flavorings, and.
hunting through the cupboard,he found
vanilla and cinnamon and pi;i tbem in
with a generous band. As lie cooled a
■poonfal, however, there seemed to be
something lacking, uud after u mo
ment'i thought be went up stubs und
queried of Mrs. Bowser:
"Don't you remember that I bought
a bottle of wlntergreeu essence some
time ago? It's exactly what mother
used to use ln her candy. Bless mc,
bnt how many times lu my boyhood
I have bunted for the delicious winter-
green berries!"
"If there Is nny, you'll find it in the
right hand cupboard," she replied, "but
you want to be careful. There ure a
lot of other bottles there. It smells as
If you bad scorched the molasses."
"Just enough to give it the right
taste.   I'll show you some candy that

win be wanting a taste."
There were a Korv of bottles lu the

Its contents und poured them luto the

the finishing touch, lie waited to

set It down under Mrs Bowser's iu.se

It was Sir William Colville of Colville Manor who lirst discovered .Signer Albano. sir William prided himself on being the patron of struggling
geulus nnd so gave him the commission
to perpetuate In marble the beauty of
his only daughter, tbe Lady Margaret.
The sculptor was a man of twenty-
eight, with a fair face und un aristocratic bearing. There could be no
question that ho wns ti real artist witli
the chisel. His enthusiasm promised
a masterpiece. It wus arranged that
he should stay ut tbe manor While Ids
work wus lu progress.
It proved a lengthy task, but tbe sittings were anything but tiresome to
the young lady. Slgnor Albuno wus
both well traveled and well read, and,
while he knew how to keep the moments from dragging, he yet preserved
his attitude of deepest respect. Lady
Margaret looked upon him with reverence us a genius. Perhaps his youth
and good looks contributed somewhat
to her enjoyment lu the sittings, but
this pride forbade her to acknowledge.
The bust when finished was all that he
bad promised. If either of the two
young people sighed that the long
mornings iu the studio would be no
more, they gave no sign.
Three mouths afterward the father
and daughter were passengers on u
steamer for the orient. Tbey bail been
out three dnys before they discovered
thnt the sculptor wus on board. He
explained thnt through the dentb of a
relative he hud come Into a fortune
and had set out ou n tour around the
world. Sir William wns rather chagrined to And 'lis protege so fur beyond
the need of his help. While he congratulated him on his good fortune,
therefore, his manner yet conveyed the
fnct thnt he did uot consider thut bis
change ln prospects entitled him to
treatment as au equal. The Lady Margaret was u most well brought up
young woman, and she unhesitatingly
followed her father's cue.
Two days later, ns she sat nlone on
deck, Signor Albums approached her
with thc assurance of an old friend nnd
entered Into conversation, ln vain her
manner showed hlin thnt the old slays
of  happy  intercourse  must  be forgot-
ten. The Italian wns Imperturbable,
When sbe rose to go. be even dared to
lay a hand upon her arm ns he said:
"Lady Margaret. I nm here on this
steunisar toduy because I knew you
were to sail on It. I am here io say
something to you, nud you cannot go
until 1 hnve spoken."
The girl hnd snatched nway her arm
and faced him proudly as she drawled
with slow Insolence:
"Did you not receive payment In full
for your work?"
A look of Hiieh poigiinni suffering
crossed bis mobile face that a Hush of
shame rose to her own cheeks.
Ills voice wus full of reproach us he
"Is lt kind to taunt me with the fnct
that 1 had to sell my genius for shillings uml pence? You were nol so
when you were my model. You were
not only pleased with my work ns an
artist, but I fondly hoped thnt I bad
found favor In your eyes ns a man."
Perhaps her heart responded to his
words, but only pride of race showed
In her voice as she answered hotly,
"Sir, have you lost your senses?" nnd
wnlked nway llkeuu Injured queen,
Half an hour later tbe wraihy Sir
William bunted up the sculptor and
"Should you speak to my daughter
again while this voyage lasts I will np
peal to tbe captain to have you locked
up In your stateroom."
"Sir William," replied Slgnor Alba no
respectfully, but imploringly, "do not
drive me to desperation."
But S'r William refused to listen.
For the next few days Lady Margaret
often felt his snd, Imploring eyes fixed
upon her, but he did not again vein ure
to approach her.
The fifth evening a note was delivered at her door. Almost Immediately
following Slgnor Albuno made his appearance In the smoking room, He carried a revolver In Ills band, His face
wns pale and tils eyes blazing.
"Gentlemen," he snld to the dozen
loungers ln the room, "I must trouble
you to go out. In the next half hour I
aiar receive n note,   if 1 do, all will be
-,.,■■. if I .lu not, we will all go to the
',,;„,, mgutherul exactly 0 o'clock.

u quurter io U be culled to the whispering group outside the suloon door:
•-Gentlemen, we huve fifteen minutes
left. 1 warn every one not to hasten
the calamity by tampering wltb my
itateroom door. If you open thnt door,
you will explode thirty pounds of dy-
tin mi te at ous'i*."
There was something theatrical abi
it nil. uml yet the menace In the li
inn's voice brought n shiver. The captain mude n sign to the ship's carpenter, and they silently went below.
Avoiding the fatal door, the carpenter
feverishly began work on the room
partition. It seemed hours beforo he
hinl cut a hole large enough to allow
his body to slip through. Just clear of
the door was the signer's steumer
trunk. Two wires run from the door
to the trunk, and from the interior
came u noise like the ticking of a
clock. When the wires had been cut,
the captain said:
"Softly, uow. Up with the cover.
Ah! Here ls the clockwork, nnd a
handkerchief among the wheels does
the business."
At the same moment the report of a
revolver rung out. Up ln the saloon
the clock was pointing to It. The mad
lover bad pressed the weapon to his
temple, pulled the trigger und fallen
back n corpse. The white faced passengers waited tremblingly for another report, but Instead they heard a woman's cry. The I.ndy Margaret hnd
fallen, fainting, In the doorway.
Was there dymimlte in the trunk?
Truly ninety pounds of it But for tbe
coolness of the captain 400 lives would
have been sacrificed to the disappointment of a madman.
And did the Lady Margaret yield at
the last moment? That Is the secret
locked in her own proud heart.
llmitl-on  of  Bell*.
Bells were solemnly baptized like
children, u custom which ls still extant In the Soman church. This ls
probably not a primitive prnctico and
cannot be traced further bnck thnn tbe
reign of Charlemagne. It Is first distinctly mentioned in tho time of Pope
John Xlll. (OSS), when he gave his
own name to the great bell of the Lateral! cburcb. Sis-Ulan gives an nccount
of the ceremonial to be observed: "l-'lrst
of nil the bells must be so bung thut
the bishop mny be able to walk round
tbem. When he has chanted a few
psalms in a low voice, be mingles water and salt and consecrates them, dlll-
gently sprinkling the bell with the mixture both inside nnd out. Then be
wipes it clean and with holy oil describes on it the figure of the cross.
praying the while that when the bell Is
swung up nnd sounded faith and charity may abound among men, ull the
snares of the devil — hall, lightning,
winds, storms—tuny be rendered vain
nnd all unseasonable weather be softened. After be has wiped off that
cross of oli from the rim he forms seven other crosses on lt, but only oue of
them within. The bell is censed, more
psalms are sung and prayers ure put
up for Its welfare. After this feasts
and banqueting! are celebrated Just as
at a wedding." — Gentleman's Magazine.

the time for the ceremony.
All went well until it cuuie time for

President Mayer of the Western
Federation of Miners said at Butte on
Saturday that the condition of the
coal camps in and around Fernie,
which he has been investigating, is as
bad as Siberia. He says the mining
company owns everything, permitting
the men no privileges, and allowing
no business except under their control.
They even exerciss- a censorship, Mr.
Mayer declares, on what their ein-
ployec-i shall read. How's that for
free, enlightened Canada.
The development of the province's
chief industry, mining, is prooeeding
apace and progress is being made iii
every section. In no one particular is
it to be noticed more than in smelting,
the capacity of the local plants being
now found to Ix* far too small. The
Granby and Boundary Falls works
will add mom stacks and before the
