KJ THE DRILL,  $2 per year gj
Everything is bein;,' rapidly put in
order for the celebration here on La-
bar Day, and the assurances are for a
record crowd from the outside towns.
The cheap rates from Nelson, Boss-
land and Trail and the excellent train
service arranged are a strong drawing
r.fl'd and a largo crowd will eventuate.
The arrangements for Nakusp and
lake points are also excellent and a
satisfactory turnout may be expected.
Monday night the managing committee met and compared notes, the
result be'nj pleasing to them. They
have deci led to put up a set of medals
lor a baseball match between the lesser clubs, with an imposing prize for
the top n itchers. Medals will also be
given in the rifle contest. Some additions ware made to tin; Caledonian
sports, making an imposing list. No
entrance fees are to be charged in the
Caledonian list, and there will be
many co npetitors.
Aootit Half a dozen outside baseball
teams have written in to be accommodated, and there will be matches
galore, il number of local tea mu.are
getting in shape for the drilling con1
test, upon which there will be. considerable money change hands. New
Denver will be represented by its rifle
team, accompanied by the bulk of its
citizens. It is the Caledonian sports,
though, that will prove the winning
card, a^ all the well known athletes of
thi* district have expressed their intention of being present; Keen interest
is being aroused over the outcome of
lhe various footraces, and all kinds of
money is flouting around.
As the bulk of the crowd is expected

Tie* loeal mill people had Wires fire
semes in a week, two of them occurring on Saturday. On Thursday n
blaze mysteriously broke out near
the hay in their stable and caught on
the framework, Fortunately it was
discovered in time and put oui. tlie
mill hands having it in subjection before the fire brigade arrived on the
scene. Saturday morning n spark
Iroin the smokestack ignited the saw-1
dust near the drykiln. but it, too. wns j
suppressed before doing any harm :
About 9.80iu the evening the sharp!
tooting of the whistle gave notice that
something was amiss in the shingle
mill, and the whole town rushed to
the rescue. Excessive friction of a
pulley revolving in a pile of sawdust
beneath the dragaaw had heated the
stuir and it finally broke into a flame,
though no sign of it appeared when
the mill shut down at six. The uight
watchman gave the alarm nnd a plentiful supply of water from the mill
hose soon Dad the flames under control. A burnt belt nnd pulley and
■omescorched woodwork were the sum
total of the damage done.
Fire on I.omoii Creek.
A bad fire has been raging for a
week past on the first north fork of
Lemon creek, destroying much timber
and Imperilling the buildings at several properties. Ou Sunday three or
four bents of the Chapleau train were
taken out and the mill and camp given
a close shave. At the Kilo, too, the
buildings had a narrow sipieak, and
the men made preparations t" lake
everything movable into ihe tunnels.
It has been the worst fire in yenrs.
Siriuk Their l.eml.
After several month:*, of hard work
the owners of the Myrtle group.al the
head of Twelve Mile creek, struck tin*
lead in their 'ong crosscut last Thursday night. Thev are now crossing the
vein, about 80 feet, to the foot wall.nnd
there expect to break into ii big ore

Last Saturday Oscar White, ofthe
Sloean Star, Sandon, accompanied by
H. E.White and Dr. E. J. Sifton, of
Jamestown, N.D., went up to inspect
the Lady Franklin group, at the head
of Lemon creek. There nre chances
of ii move being mnde in thai vicinity.
Dr. Sifton is a cousin of Hon. Clifford

That the price offered for zinc ore
in the Joplin district is based on the
supply and the demand is no longer
a question. Since the July restriction
in output the price of ore hns increased .S~> per ton. During the two weeks
the mines were closed down the output was restricted 5()(K) tons, and the
reserve stock dwindled to 2600 tons,
With half of that amount sold for the
next week's delivery. As the reserve
stocks decreased the ore price increased, and this, too, in  spite of the fact
fying effect on the women folk living
out from the business section. The
tooting of the whistles led tliem to
believe unother accident hnd occurred
or a general conflagration had broken
out. It was some time before the
scare subsided. With forest fires on
every side, the citizens are prepared to
hear anything.

A satisfactory deal was concluded on Monday, when R. J. McPhee,
manager of the Ottawa, on behalf of his principals, made the third
and final payment on the Mayetta group of claims. There are nine
claims iu the group, viz.. Mayetta, Aricle. Flyette, Biloxie, Biloxie

Carlisle, who cleans up a nice little pot of money.
The. elnini'iadjoin the Ott-.r.vn on the north and Ixith veins of the

All the claims do not possess these veins, for some of them have been
secured because of the line timber they carry, but sullicient mineral

worked in conjunction with the Ottawa. The east vein in particular

The pu'.ci*as.".'s will put on five or six men at once and will extend

year ago, while spelter is quoted one
dollar lower. The duly restriction has
taught one lesson the Joplin producer
will not soon forget, and that is that
the price of ore is controlled by the
amount of ore on hand. The last week
in June, while one or two bi us sold at
•S;5(i, the general top price wns {84 an 1
.*-\?"i nerton. with the assay basis down
to 129 to 882, Atthe close of a t.vo
week's restriction the top price is $40,
and an assay price of fee to $87 per
ton of (it) per cent zinc. The restriction proves, beyond the shadow of n
doubt, that every curtailment should
be inaugurated liefore the ore, reserve
reaches 4000tons, aud that it should
be started secretly and managed very
quietly throughout. The restriction
in July was secretly inaugurated and
pressed forward before the reserve
stock had grown to menacing proportions, lt was the tirst effort ever made
lo start a restriction at the proper
time. The results have been as astonishing to the producers as the restriction movement was to the purchasing
agents. There is a gradual and very
healthy Increase in the demand for
spelter. With the demand Increased
8100 tons in a year and the supply
only proportionately increased, the
future of spelter should be encouraging, with a reflective benefit ou zinc
ore prices.

Ontario Minister of Asrlculture  Talk* of

Bacon 1'iutlw-
Hon. John Drydcn, Ontario Minister ol Agriculture, und 1'rof. Day ol
the O.A.C. nt tiuelph, Mt for Europe
on the 10th June. After Investigating the English market they will
visit Denmark and gather information about dairy and stock-farming
as practiced there.
"Wc want to find out their ways,
nnd enquire into the uniformity ol
their product, which is ono of their
strongest points; and about thc breed
of their hogs, nntl anything else that
may give us a clue to the success of
the Dane* in the English market,"
■aid Mr. Dryden, in speaking of his
expected visit to Denmark before
leaving Toronto.
"I think in some sections of England our bacon is liked, but wo cater
(or ono market only, nntl stick to
that. Our farmers generally aro interested in tho supply of bucon from
Denmark, as it is always held up as
the real competitor in tho British
'■'I understand our people aro entering to a particular class of trade,
but whether that is tho only or tho
best class available remains to be
seen. My own theory is that wo can
produce as good a bacon ns anyone,
but it depends both on tho farmer
and the packer. If tho farmer docs
not supply good raw material, thc
packer is helpless; but tho farmer is
Just as helpless if thc packer does
not utilize it to advantage.
'■'I am prepared to say," continued
Mr. Drydcn, meditatively, "that if
our people can receive for their
pork and beef between fivo and six
cents a pound—well, I would not nlways expect to get six cilits, but,
say, from five to six—if someone
could guarantee me these prices, and
corresponding prices on cheese and
bacon, I Would guarantee to pay ofl
all tho mortgages in Ontario."
''There is no money in grain alone.
The farmer who selis his bnrluy and
even his wheat, his peas and his
oats, his rough grain products, corn,
ensilage and so forth, through his
stock, gets a higher rate for his
crops. The man who undertakes to
Mil grain in the old way at the depot or thc harbor, is more likely to
get a mortgage on than to take one
ofl. The money is in selling through
the animal."
I'We havo been doing a good deal
In what I call Agricultural College
extension work. It is undertaken in
union with the farmers. When wo get
a good variety of grain, it is sent to
a good farmer outside to experiment
wltA. He observes and reports, and
collets tho product. Thc Increasing
and* spreading of good varieties is
pushed on by these farmers who
•tart with a pound of seed and, in
twe or three years, have a ten-acre
flel*. They con sell it to their neighbors then, and thc area is expanded
In which good varieties are grown.
What I apprehend Is this, that thc
largely-Increased quantity of crops
ana stock produced is duo to thc
tinprovcd varieties of grnln and the
quality of the animals wc have introduced.
"We may look Into the dead-ment
ts+Jo when we are over. I would
lAtfter like to seo that trade well established. . It is a profitable one. The
mots this dead-meat trnde i.s developed, the moro certainly will our
(armors be on tho road to success.
***»I do not tako the view that somo
•tlo. W«» should have three .strings to
our bow. Wo should sond tho cattle
dead in cold storage. Wo should havo
our packing-houses, whore thc byproducts can be utilized ns well ns
tha canned goods, and wo should be
able to ship our cattle alive.
•'I would like tho embargo taken
ofl. Somo say it would bo better to
compel tho farmers to feed tho cuttle hero, but I would take tlio plan
that works out best. Thc farmer is
no fool, and tho greater scope he has
be knows ls to his advantage. The
man with store cut tin does uot wish
the farmer to conipcto. Uo will argue
that tho farmer should not' bo allowed to run his light Cattle out of
tbs country, aud that they should be
lad hore. But If it Is better to run
£hem light and let them be fed over
there, wo should bo able to do so. If
1 could do anything to remove tho
embargo I would do so without hesitation, because lt would bn a benefit
to the country. In Britain they
could take caro of nil the light rut-
tle wo could send thetn. The other
scheme Is carried out by force of
law, but I bellevo ln liberty of action to make tho most of our opportunities.
"I am willing to stafce my faith on
tile Ontario farmer If we can only
■give blm tho proper cuo. I realize
very fully tho change that hus come
tovw the spirit of the pvople. They
"are enthusiastic now, antl have some
-confidence In tho head of tho department, and are willing to tako any
cue that wc con givo them."
*-rof. Day will pay Some attention
to tho poultry market in England.
Mr. Dryden owiects tp sec n lot of
tUs boat Uvo stock, but hns no settled purpose about purchasing. Whether hs will biy or not will depend entirely on tbo prices asked, nnd ho
does not need to go to England to

Two Instances Where tbe Tide Wns
Tnrned  liy  Singing: Tliem.
There are two instances on record of
a battle being won by n war song. In
the fifth century C.ernuinus, bishop of
Auxerre, antl Lupus, bishop of Troyoa,
were sent into Britain to refute the
doctrines of lVluglus. During their
stay In this Island the Diets nml Roots,
bearing that the .'louinn legion bad
been withdrawn, commenced hostilities and drove the Britons from tlio
northern to the more southern parts of
the island. Gerniniius, nt the request
of the linrd pressed islanders, led them
against the Diets mid Scots, who bad
advanced ns far ns Mold, in Flintshire
Tho bishop, hnvlng been n military
commander In bis youth, placed his
men ln nn advantageous position and
then Btnrted one of the songs of the
church. This song began nt tho commencement of the buttle, ntul so vociferously did the Britons sing the refrain, "Halleluiah," that the hills, echoing with tho sound, terrified their enemies and caused them to flee In nil directions. This was called the halleluiah victory. Tho date ls fixed by nil
historians at A. D. 4*20.
The second instance occurred on tho
■3th of November, 1792, when the
French, under Dumonrlex, encountered
the Austrluns nt Jcinuinpos, ln Belgium. The dny wns going dend agnlnst
thc French, when Humourless ran out
to the front and rnlseil tbe "Marseillaise." Forty thousand voices Instantly
took up the chorus, nnd, Inspired by
thc inngic of tlio battle song, tlio
French rallied and fell so furiously
upon the Austrlnns that the tide of
bnttln was completely turned and victory given for defeat.

The  High  Standard  They  Hnve   Set
. For American  Litem!*re.
Two things are to be remembered
when Hawthorne's name ls mentioned.
First, the glory he reflects upon American literature. Little has been done
by us ln letters or art thnt ls quite of
the highest order except the works of
Hawthorne. These have the clear
promise of perpetuity. The themes nre
of supreme nud universal moment. He
rises to their meaning and depicts them
ln commensurate form. Ho ls not a
preacher to cry aloud, but an artist
who paints, yet not without a henrt
that throbs ln pity nnd a funcy thnt
muses over the wonder of It nnd will
not suffer the pall of darkness to hang
over lt forever. That we have In Hawthorne nn author whose work In these
high fields of thought ls crowned with
unimpeachable honor nnd ls sure of
perpetual remembrance Is a constant
satisfaction as years go by.
But Hawthorne hns n wider claim
upon our gratitude—namely, the fact
tlmt ho has set the seal of glorious
achievement In letters upon the moral
laws of our nnture. The greatest
things done in literature have been of
this sort. They alone, from Job down,
nro remembered and cherished in the
ages. Hawthonuo Is our only exponent
of genius In this field, and how superbly has he filled lt! Ills message ls tlmt
of Dante n.iul St. Pnul nnd ull great
moralist's—whatever a man does to another he does to himself, whether lt be
good or evil. Meu will forever dwell
iu this truth nnd will never forget
those gifted souls who see lt clearly
and set It forth ln perfect forms of literary art.—Century.

j of the body. Apple lice wero so bud
in Montana last season in their effect on young orchards as to be vory
discouraging to the apple grower^.
II. ll. I'ettit of Michigan advises to
dip all young stocks in hot water
(IHO P.) or in tobacco water before
setting out new orchards. Kerosene
emulsion, diluted to the ordinary
strength for summer spraying, will
nlso answer. A liberal use of tobacco dust or wood ashes aliout trees
will help to restrict the lice. For
tho aerial lice on tho limbs a spray
of kerosene, ten times diluted anil
forcibly applied, is recommended. Mr.
I'ettit says trees grafted on Northern
Spy stock have lieen found very resistant to woolly aphis.
Profossor Slingorland has recorded
the year 100!! in New York ns noted
for an excessive and unprecedented
development of plant lice on both
shade and fruit trees. Apples, quinces,
plums, pears and cherries were su
bndly infected thnt tho trees in many
cases were permanently injured. Apple nnd sweet cherry stocks suffered
most. Sour cherries, beside badly
injured sweet varieties, were not
touched. But the most surprising and
destructive work of these little pests
was in large bearing orchards In
western New York. The young fruits
were swarming with lice, which hnd
stunted their growth and in some
cases given the fruits a misshapen,
knotty appearance. One large apple
buyer stated in the autumn that il
was very tlillk'tilt to pack good stork
in the infested orchards. One grower
reported his crop reduced one-half by
the lice. Many young orchards Were
treated several times with 11"' Oil
and soap mixtures with good success
when the work w-as thorough.
The  Threads  of   Wire   Upon   Whloh
So  Many Liven  Daily Depend.
While tho longest ropes are used for
hauling purposes, some of the must interesting data In connection with wire
ropes ure obtained with their use i'or
hoisting purposes. Hundreds of thousands of lives are literally eueh day
hung by a sum11 wire thread us the
mon are lowered into and hoisted from
the bowels of the earth, and In many
eases the only means of commuuioation
lietween the surface nnd the under*
ground workings, which nre from n
fow Coot to ii mile In depth, Is by n
comparatively small hoisting rope.
Think of hanging from the end of n cubit* only a few Inches In diameter nnd
a mile long, being hoisted ut n rnte
whieh is Caster than thnt of the average railroad train, nnd some Idea of the
hoisting problem cun be gained, To
the honor of the wire rope manufacturers it must be suid thnt very few shiift
accidents aro due to the b.etiklng of
the rope, excepting where the cage ls
overwound nnd unwarranted demands
ure mnde upon the rope or which are
traceable to false economy on the part
of the users of wire rope. No purt of
a mining plant ls more carefully In*
.pected und watched thnn the hoisting
i*t pe, nnd very few mine managers will
tako any unnecessary risks In the
hoisting of men. The skill of the wire
rope milker is taxed to the utmost to
provldo ropes for hoisting from great
depths. To niuUe a rope of practicable
si/.e that will bo sufficiently flexible

There is nothing too small or re*
pulsive to escape the vigilant eye of
the Agricultural Department. Recently a bulletin Wiis issued on the
"Usefulness of tho Toad." Now. the
toad is not beautiful to look upon,
although in the loveinukiiig season
he is a musical reptile. But the nil
seeing visual organ of the Agricultural Department bus discovered
that, like the ben, the briiiille cow,
and other homely friends of man, the
toad more thnn makes up In tho
useful what he lacks in the aesthetic. Shakcsfioare's charge that the
toad  is  venomous  has  been   proved n
libel. l'*.i|iially fallacious Is the counterbalancing virtue that he "hath
yet   ft     precious   Jewel   in   his   head.''
All this proven that the bard of
Avon wus not so Intimately acquainted with bis toadship us is the modern
scientist. So ulso must go our fond
belief that tlio toad creates watts.
Very many (.ther popular notions,
such as the bloodying of the cow's
milk as n result of toad murder, are
nlso exploded by the Iconoclasts of
the depart ment.
The toad's utility lies ln thc
things he eatf*. Ho has the largest
appetite for his si/e of any animal
on record, nnd us an absorbent ol
flies has thn various traps nnd
brands of fly pnper beaten a mile. He
looks clumsy enough, but when he
sees n largo nml juicy Insect, no cat
goes after n mouse with tho lightn*
ing-like rapidity dovclopod by lha
load. He cats (lies, mosquitoes,
hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, cent I*
pedes,   ants,   I Ugs,   Worms   mid   prol,-
ably    microbes,    though    tho  germ
phase   of   llis     appetite   has   la.t    been
investigated l.y the agricultural exports, Ai any rato, tho facl thai ho
devours flies, riio'.'|iiilocs and ivaspS
makes hlm n frtond ol man. Ho
voracious Is tho toad thnt when ha
cannot get anything else to stay lha
cravings of his perennial hunger, ha
skins himself and eals his own cuticle. In this he differs from his
human cousin, who skins something
or somebody else.
A I'leunaut Sort of Deception Common to Many  People.
It is a common thing to find the
clocks In nine out of ten households
either fifteen minutes or hnlf an hour
fast, nnd should you happen to be In a
hurry or mention tbe fnct thnt you
have to be going you are at once reassured by the fact that you huve no
cause to hurry, ns the clock Is so much
ahead of tho time.
Has It ever occurred to you why
ilecks are usually put ahead? Some
physicians hnve said it is due to lustiness, for it ls sueh a satisfaction to the
lazy mnn to find when he has to get
up ut 7 in the morning nnd strains his
half closed eyes to look nt the clock
that it ls hnlf uu hour fust nud he bus
so much more time to doze, with the
result that he oversleeps himself nuy-
liow and misses bis train or bont.
Snid n watchmaker wheu usked
nhout the subject:
"Ves, lt ls ii peculiar thing with most
people to put their clocks fast, aud.
while there may be some satisfaction
iu lt when It comes to dozing n little
longer, there is reully no advantage in
it, for when you wake up, sny, nt 0 and
glance at the dock nnd it registers hnlf
past o, the fact remains that It Is a
hulf hour fast. While thla may make
you feel ensler, knowing thut you still
have thirty minutes to doze, 1 confess
I don't see much advantage In it.
"Why not hnve the clock right? lt Is
the snnic thing In the end.
'•Suppose railroads were to put this
Into practice, how mnny trains do you
think people would miss thereby'/ This
putting (locks fast Is reully ouly n
pleasant form of deception which people like to practice on themselves, but
lt docs more barm than good."

Paring •*• r,,st P*********8 Heavy i)r*n.rB
Iluvi* Boon t'l-oflbtblt*.
There has been no timo during the
past decade when a first class heavy
drafter would not sell at a profit to
the producer, said Professor Skinner
before the Nebraska l^ive Stock Association. Such horses are demand*
ed by mnny manufacturers uml wholesale merchants nt high prices. In the
markets to-day they will range In
price from Slot) to $5U0, depending
on the size and quality. Everything
considered, this typo of hoi so will
bo most profitable for fanners.
Some think the light horse, such ns
used for bus und express purposes, ;
better adapted to (armors' condition,
but in his effort to produco tho
heavy typo a sullicient number of
failures will result in enough of tho '
lighter type to supply the demands.    |
The heavy draft horse is tho   best
for several reasons.   Ho can bo pro- |
duceil   easily and   cheaply, requires
little nt tent ion and   is reitdily   l.rok- (
en.   Furthermore, ho can bo used on
the farm from two to four years and j
thus pay his way.   Blemishes do not |
detract so much from his sale, us In
the case of many other types, and ho
is well suited to tho heavy work now
found on tho farm. |
A  few  years ago    much  was  said
nbout the very short legged, extreme- !
ly blocky horse, und to-iluy such aro ;
good sollers, but a fnr superior 1'nrm j
horse   is    found   in     Iho    urt ivo,   upstanding horse of 1,600 pounds  nnd
upward with good fiction and style. |
Such  u horse  will  not  only  sell    to I
advantage,  but fill  the  roll  of farm i
horse    well.    He  can  bo  taught     to
wnlk  rapidly    and  does    not    know |
whnt n  load is.    Where such are bred j
and raised on  thu    farm they    cost
very   little    and help   mightily    In I
making   up the   losses   from cattle
feeding,  etc.     They   ca
by   mating  the   heavier   mnres   with I
pure bred    draft    stallions   of     any |
of  the leading   draft   breeds  of     np- |
proved type nnd quality.
Prepotsaoe ol .stallion*.
With drafters most authorities
agree that twonty-flvo mares are
enough for a three-year-old horse,
while one a year older may cover
forty, which would indicate that
dentition or no dentition a stallion
is expected to do more In tbo stud
at four than he is at three. Stallions have covered ut these ages
many moro marcs than the numbers
mimed und suffered not al all from
so doing, but as u gen,nil rule it
will bo found ihnt it Is better to go
very slow with horses four years of
age. It is always well to save something to finish with, and it is no
hard trick at all I" overdo a three
or four year old horse in the stud.—
