George E. Roberts, director of the
United States mint at Washington,
has completed his report upon the
production of the precious metals for
the calendar year 1901. The final figures of the world's output show that
the production of gold and silver of
the (British Empire amounted to5133,-
r>ll,.300, or $21,716,700 in excessof the
output of the United States, which
was $111,759,100,
Of lhe United States output$33,*
128,400 was silver, reckoned at its
commercial value, and $78,666,700 in
gold. Australasia, diuTng the same
p iriod, produced u'old to the value of
576,880,200, or about une and one-half
millions less than the  United Si,ties.

Exports from the division this week
wore very slim, consisting only of 20
inns of slimes from tlie Enterprise
mill. The roads are so bad on Ten
Mile and Springer creeks that nqthing
sail be moved, and tin* advent of
sleighing alone will relieve the s'.rnin.
'Ihere is an al lindane • of ore at the
various mines waiting to go out and
the managements ara endeavoring* to
bs- patient, but it is a tedious task.
For 1900 the exports from this division amounted to 2847 tons, made up
from ten properties, Last year the
exports totalled 6529 tons, from fourteen pro] icil ies. Following is a full

A Novd by Annie Thompsoa.
There were customs at tho Manse,
Which, like tlie laws of the Modes ninl
rersiuns, altered not. Every evening
at half past Bine, un exodus tosik
plnce from the purlor. Mr. Ferris
went to his study, und was supposed
io work for un hour or two; the
-.oiiiij? ludies went to their rooms,
untl were supposed to loss' no time in
go nu; to rs'st. Sm li had Indeed been
iho habits of nil three in former days,
istu ibey no longer usesl their time as
thev bud been is out to USB it Mr!
leiris did not .simly in the evening,
although his lump was always lit
i nd his books and writing material!
i laced in readiness; Instead, he sat
mui ruminated for un Indefln.te period with .uiii'iiiiiii! results, Qonerull.i
a int/o stole over his mind, through
which thoughts presented themselves
slow]** and vaguely while the large
sight-day clock ticked a mount, num aocompanliuont. 'Ibe
striking of the clock, or
u. sensation of cramp in hla limbs,
would rouse him after un Interval;
unsl he would rise nnd turn out tho
light, shaking iiis bend uml saying,
'Well, well, well!" in u profoundly
regretful tone, us though it were a
s.id thing that such profitable meditation should have un ond put to
it.     Kttte,   who lit  the lump at   nighl
und attended tsi it next morning,
wus quite aware that the pen ami
paper were unused ami the books un-
ilisturlii'd: yet, us tlie proper hour
approached, she never failed to say,
"Vou Will want to study now,
Uncle?" and he us invariably re-
sponiled,   "Yes,   child,  certainly."
To-night from her seat in the window, she stole glumes at the clos-k,
Waiting with feverish impatience for
Ihe time when her uncle's lamp must
bo lit. Although she l,ong*3d to be
nlnni*, it might seem strange If she
absented herself loo soon sm sucb an
occasion ns tli is. She held a worn
cock ln her hand, and liestowod sn
close a care on tbe darning of it,
that Mary looked at her with wondering disapproval. Surely It was
t cither respectful to her mule, nor
courteous to John, that Kate sboulsl
sent herself away from the rest of
l!iem, and work and take so little
notice. Po little notice; Had Mary
l.nown it, there was not a word
spoken nor a movement made, of
which Knte's souses failed to Inform her. Never had she been mora
conscious of her surroundings, never
more acutely aware of the Inflections in her companions' tones anil
the direction of their glances. All
the while, her needle flashed bnck
and forth, dartin-r under his strand
und over that with amazing rapislity
nntl precision. Seven times down the
row and seven times bnck, the
gleaming point appeared: Kate's excited fancy saw It drrsg out a syllable from benenth every thread-'To
you see your mistake, Kate? Do
you see your mistake, Kate?"
The time route at last She prepares! the study, nntl returned to
make t''e Usuunl siiL'trest ion about
work.     Mr. Ferris di'literated.
"Well,  not to-nielit,  Kate,  I  think
John will perhaps come and talk
with   me  ior a  wuiie.     ih.re   is     no
occasion for you two to stay up

And whut within?
Mary carried With her the new§-
paier that Mr. Ferris had thrown
aside eurlier in tho evening. She
was so Conscious of her own intention in tuking it, that she bad hlush-
id quite guiltily and looked apprehensively at her companions as she
lifted it from the purlor table. Her
movement was unobserved, however;
nnd when she found herself ulone, she
hurried     to     ber    Window,    through
whish sufficient daylight still streamed tn make her independent of a

column. It might "have bes'n supposed
lhat she was intensely concerned in
foreign aflfairs, thc doings of Parliament still assembled, uml topics of
more locul Interest. Truth to tell, she
wus searching only for one name, the
appearance of which in print on two
or threo occasions, had invested journalism with a solemn dignity la
Mary's eyes. Twice during her examination of tbe paper, her heart
began to beat quickly anil her fare to
glow; sho found the name of flavin
Wishart, Ess}., In the lists of guests
in the launch of the s.S. "Karoo,"
uml from another column she loariiesl
thut ho was seie of "a few generous
ansl philanthropic men" who were
starting a ri'lief fund for the sufferers
ft om the Cooper's Mill Eire. Sbe laid
the paper down, and sighed; "How
noble he Is!" she thought.
Then sho divested herself of her
drs'.ss, loosened her golden hair, and
ki.olt at the window to read her I tibia
and any ber prayers. It seemed very
di'i cult to fix her attention on the
veis s before her, her mind kept wandering to Iho laumh nnd thu Helief
Fund. In real distrsss. sho put
aside ber Bible and tried to pray —
to iliscnver presently that sho was in
the midst of an imaginary conversation with Gavin Wishart. Startled
and ashamed, Mury pressed her bunds
tigh ly over her eyes, and began to
pray audibly n a low whisper. Sho
th. n ed (.oil fssr having mude such a
good 11 an ni Gavin; *h« prated that
lis might always bo noble and generous  anil   beloved; that   he  might     ,al

je ity might iinike him love Hod
more; and - that it might perhaps
bo true — that — that — Mary
rose to hsT feet hurriedly wltb a
sudslen hurst of solis. "Ob me' 1 am
not praying rightly at all. Why am I
so wicked; how run l.'od forgive me?"
Half an hour later she was asleep.
In the next room, Kate knelt before her open window-. She had knelt
thero for an hour or more, perfectly
motionless. Her hands were clusped
before her on the window sill, her
face was very white, her eyes were
wide open and gazed upon the sea.
The golden color hud died out of
the sky, leaving it grey and dreary.
The sea looked desolate: its waves
lifted themselves listlessly and sank
upon the shore, as though every
movement were an effort. Kate was
not thinking about tbem, nor about
an,-,thing. Her mind seemed to have
wearied Itself out, With the iteration
of the Sentence that hud accompanied ber darning. Her faculties were
torpid, numb. The monotonous sound
of voices in the stuily below, confused itself with the monotonous dash
o; the waves without. Alter a while,
tho sound of voices censed, duos
wero closs'd ami bolted, the hnuse
was shut up for lhe night. Still Kate
knelt  at  her Window.
Prssently, sho felt a splash upon
her hand. She Isioked up to the sky,
the stars who shining down on her;
■he toucbi'd bor eves, tbey were wet
with toil's. Kate laughed then she
cuiiglit her breath in sudden terror—
the laugh bud such a dreadful sound
in it.
All at once, a flood of thought was
let loose, [louring itself out in low-
tone soliloquy.
"It was too good; of course it
could not tie for tne. T might have
known that; oil! I might have known
that Why are some so rich in love,
while others go starving all their
lives? Hunger hurts — hurts—hurts;
perhaps one can get accustomed to it,
in time .  .  .
"1        have        been insane.
I might have thought of
this, it is so natural. She was
here live years beforo I came: she
and Alice and he, were ulways together. I have been thinking of her
as a child. And all the time I
thought—1 thought he eared for
nie. Does one always find out tbe
truth, too late? I have been mistaken, I have been inordinately vain:
1 never knew before that 1 was vain!
Oh Mary! you could have spared it
so easily. Every one loves you: yssu
can make yourself love uny one. 1
cannot. 1 have loved him all these
years. I never knew it until to-day:
nnd now, it stretches itself back
through all these years. It is here,
alive, and 1 can't kill it. 1 would
strangle lt if I could, but I can't, 1
can't!" She wrung her hands iin-
pssts-titly.  .  .
"Well, there Is no use now, in
looking back. What am I to do'.'
looking tunic. What am 1 to do'.' What
am I to do? What do people do,
when they are shewn heaven, ami
then turned away from it? There is
work, of course. And I shall have
to see this going on. and listen to
their confidences, and make opportunities for them.     .  ."
She felt a sharp stab Of pain in
her shoulder; nnd dragged herself
wearily to her feet, realizing how
stiff and cold  she  was.    .
''RheumatismI" she said, with another mirthless laugh "An aching
shoulder nnd an aching heart, and
myself  In  blame  for  both  of  them."
She   struck   a   light   und   looked   at
her watch   it  wus nearly two o'clock.
With     her     ca lulls*   in   her   hand,   she
pushed   open   the  door  between     her
room  and  Mary's.     Mury  was asleep
For   a   long     time   Kate  stoost     and
watched     her.     As  she   looked   upon
the lovely face with its halo of gol-
uen nair, tne iioruness uuu um irom
her  own   features.
"Vou ure goosl, dear!" she whispered, "you deserve happiness. You
ure not strong enough to endure
hunger; it is right that you should
ulivii.ts hale lose about you." She
bent down to touch her cousin's
fi rs'hs-ad with her lips, then she stole
silently  back  to her own  room.
There had been silence in the study
for tome time after ihe gentlemen entered it. Mr   Ferris, having adjusted
the lamp so that its light should illuminate tho face of his companion.
had seated himself where ho could
obtain a good view of that face. He
loied to look upon it; he was enger

wrought in it during tins.* seven

wns then that Kate heard the monotonous sound of voices mingle   with
the monotonous Hound of  tlie surf,

John Isioked up with a good-buin-

thus rominded that his advice was

****        Copyright, 19ul, by James lluckham
The little white house of the Partridge "t<irls" luy busking tn the suiii-
tn**i- sunshine. It seemed the very em-
l.tiiliiiifiit of orderly thrift und domestic pence. The bit of green yard was
us clean and tidy as if it hnd been
swept and theu every separate grass
blade dusted anil set Iu orderly urray.
The two glists-ning paths tluit led one
up to the front door und the other
along the side of the house to the
"kitchen stoop" were Inclosed by slen-
ds-r round posts, through whieh ran a
single strand of wire. The posts nnd
their connecting wire were puinted n
fresh, lustrous green. There were also
six green posts ulong the sidewalk in
front of the house, sluing together by
u  green wire, nud  nt each corner of
the    two    |iislli.    stood    a    large    -svblte-
wiishesl stone, so dazzling white that tt
made the eyes ache like new fallen
snow. -The entire premiss's hud a look
of immaculate neatness that wade
them seem sacred, like some faue or
little temple, unsl Indi'cd they were
sacred to the Partridge sisters, who
hail descended from a long line of old
fashioned New England worshipers ut
the Bhrlne of borne.
Inside thr place was as neat ns outside. Nobody ever found the Partridge
"girls"' lu a muss, liven when they
cleaned house tbey did It so steulthlly
ami with such amazing rapidity und
precision tlmt no one room was suf-
fi'i'fd to lie out of apple pie order for
more than ten consecutive minutes.
It was a marvelous little home this
of the Partridge sisters. Tlie minister
onee said that it wus 11 composite of
Puritan conscience and New England
sentiment, nud that there WU only oue
thing more Impressive than its severity, and that was Its sweetness.
In such a hums' as this, It would
seem, one might retire nnd be nt rest
from nil tlie cares and strifes and troubles of the uneasy world. There were
not n few who envied tlie Partridge
sisters their little patrimony nnd their
little home, the one just equal to th?
other, with un exactness beautiful to
contemplate in this world of exasperating mistits.
YVt there Is uo corner of old earth,
however remote and peaceful, where
some trouble dots not find Its way.
The skeleton In this quiet closet was
chronic difference of opinion between
tlie sisters, 11 trouble that Is almost
sure to rise between two persons of
tlie same blood untl sex who are compelled to spend most of their time In
one until li rs company, With tbe Partridge sisters this ini'iitul divergence
named to bave no root In divergence
of principle, it made practically uo
difference what tbe opinion was. Ko
long as it was hild strongly by either
sister the oilier felt bound to disagree
wiih It. June and Ellen could be of
one mind mi but one matter, and thut
was purely congenital—tbe passion for
The June sunshine rested like n ben
Cdlction on the Partridge cottage. The
ruses in the front yard nud the sweet
peas lu tlie busk yiiril were In bloom.
A golden robin wus singing lu an elm
across the street, untl the Partridge
sisters' canary wns vying with blm
from his cage In the open window.
Jane uml Ellen were out in the yard
weeding their flower beds and roaming hither and thither after the manner of hens to pick up I11llnitesi111.il
bits of litter between the gniss blades.
Suddenly Miss Ellon straightened up
uud gazed curiously at something tbat
wus coming down the villuge street.
It was an Ordinary lumber wagon, with
the box removed, und fur iu tbe rear
an extra axle uud pair of wheels.
Something long nnd white and tapering was stretched from the forward
axle of the wagon to the extra axle
and wheels trailing behind.
"What In the world can that be com
ing?" uski'd Miss Ellen,
"I presume it's our new Bngpole," replied Miss Jane, the elder spinster.
"Our uew flagpole?" cried ber sister
shrilly. "What do you mean, June
Partridge? Who said we were goiug
to huve a flagpole?"
"I said so," answered Jane. "I ordered it, and it's coming. I didn't say
anything to you about lt because I
knew you would object beforehand,
and 1 thought you might as well do
your objecting afterward; 'twould save
time. I wanted to have the pole here
lu time for the Fourth of July. I've
been thinking for some time that we
ought to be more putriotic thuu we
are, and 1 couldn't think of any better
way for two lone women to show their
patriotism than by owning a flag and
flagpole. We can't go to wur, we can't
vote, we can't speak In town meeting
and we cnn't tire n gun on Independence day, but 11 woman has Just ns
much right to fly the sturs uml stripes
us a man, and you and I are going te
do It, and we are going to do It for the
lirst time on next Fourth of July."
-Miss Ellen Partridge listened to this
loug explanation from her sister with
u set fuce. "Old mulds have no call to
be patriotic:'' slie snapped when Miss
Jane concluded. "It nln't their province; It's no woman's province. I won't
have a lltigpole in this yard, June Partridge, und you muy as well understand that first ns last. They shan't
brlug thut thing iu here If 1 have to

water. A flagpole's a dangerous thing
to hnve nrouud n house to begin with.
The lirst big wind it may snap off and
smash tbe roof In. Just aa the college
flagpole broke off uud smashed the
fountain over to Chester. It's more
dangerous than a big tree, because It
hasn't any roots. Patriotism! Huh!
t guess we show patriotism enough.
considering our privileges, by puying
our tuxes!"
By this time tlie long flagpole, attended by a crowd of boys und village
loufers, hud arrived opposite the little
cottage, and the four men who were
perched ou Its trunk dismounted nud
proceeded to unfasteu the chains that
bound It to the wagon. Miss I'llen
strode out to them. "Vou are not to
tiring that thing ln here," she suid
The man In charge of the flagpole
turned with u grin; but, seeing the expression of Miss Ellen's fuce, tils grin
died awuy ln a look of astonished perplexity.
"What in ttinket am I to do with it,
then?" he demanded. "I wus told to
bring it bere."
"I don't sure whnt you do with It,"
retorted Miss I'llen. "All I know Is
it isn't coming in here."
"It's paid for," protested the man ns
a final shot.
At this Juncture Miss June Partridge
came stalking majestlca-lly down the
little side 1 hitli. Sbe hud borne with
her sister's petulance—even as she used
to when they were children—Just long
enough to be assured that lt was of the
inflexible sort. It was now time for the
elder sister to act. She brushed Miss
Ellen aside and laid ber bund ou the
"I ord6red It," she said. "I paid for
lt, and I paid for Its settln' up. You
may bring it in and set It where I show
Miss Ellen turned abruptly and went
lato tbe house. She climbed to thc garret and got the lurge brown satchel
that her father hod owned. Then she
gathered together a few articles of
clothing and the dearest of her own
special treasures and keepsakes aud
put them Into the bag. This done, she
marched eut of the front door, satchel
ln band, and started for the villuge
depot Miss June was ln the buck
yard superintending tlio erection of the
flagpole and did uot notice ber sister's
Miss Ellen reached the depot and sat
down in tbe vacant ladles' watting
room. Sbe had not the slightest tden
where she wus going. Then* was no

her sister's tyranny. She thought tluit
she would take the lirst train ln either
direction and truvel until eveulng.
Then »'-" won)   v. op at soma hotel and

perhaps she would know what to do.

Slocan is securing an advertisement
through the press that is not at all to
her credit, the basis of comment being
the report of the post master-general
for the year ending June 80 last, In
it Slocan is credited with buying
money orders to the value of $55,512.-
89, and cashing but .14981.2*1. Only
nine other places in the province exceed this record. The inference drawn '
from the figures is that Slocan is one
of tin' most liberal supporters in the
west of the eastern departmental
stores. A more liberal patronage of

Not much of the $8,600,000just borrowed by the government will be

price paid for forcing an unfavorable

down to 18,200,000. Then there will

incidental charges. Of what is left

suit the overdraft with the Bank of
Commerce, and the Fraser bridge al
New Westminster will swallow up
$750,000 of the remainder. Should
there lie any overs, the deficit for
1902-8 will make the amount look like
the premier's chances for knighthood
somewhat slim.
