Ottawa Mine Is Banding Ita o.u from the
Al'll.lKtO.I ClHltl'K.
Tilings aro moving in a brisk manner at the Ottawa, where Mailager McPhee has 80 men at work. Tlie mine
is turning out oneof the largest in the
camp and by the end of the year will
lie the heaviest producer. Since the
wagon road was completed the ore has
been coining down at a lively rate,two
teams now being engaged in the hauling.
The ore going out this week is the
last to lie handled in sacks, iis from
now on it will be transported to the
smelter iu bulk.   In fact one team has
been so hauling all week. The Arlington ore bins and skiing, near the
Y, have been leased for lhe purpose.
Much expense in the way of sacks,
breaking and filling will be saved, and
tiie ore can be handled more expeditiously. From now on two ears per
week will be the output.
Manager McPhee says he does not
want to talk much about the mine, as
he prefers to let the results speak for
themselves, He admits she looks
simply immense,while one huge stope
in particular is a sight for sore eyes.
Two tuns of ore have been forwarded
.to Jersey City for a practical mill test,
by a new process which, if successful,
will sooner or later result in a mill
lieing erected on the'property. -lust
now. however, there is very little ore
going over the dump,as the ore streak
will almost all grade up to a paying
average.
The Ottawa is the mainstay of the
camp and its success is having an encouraging effect,
A LOYAL REPLY.
Following is the Hansard report of
C il, Hughes' reply to Premier Laurier
on the diniissal from the command of
the militia of Lord Diindo'.iald, the
leading Scotch Boldier of the Empire:
"Gol. Hii'.'ll.s Another statement
of the first minister was tliis. He re-
f ,'i're 1 fo Lord Dundonald as a foreigner aud a stranger. Let me tell
the light hon. gentleman thai Lord
Dundonald is.a Britisher, and so are
all Canadians,!irrespectiveibf language,
race,or nationality. We are all Britishers, sir, and, mark you, we intend
to remain Britishers. It was Britain
which has peopled this country, and
let me tef the hon. the first minister
that we intend it shall remain British,
lt shall nol be annexed tothe United
States. It shall not become independent of Britain, because the people
who never hesitated to come to the
front in times of necessity bave decided it will remain llritish, if they know
their business.    Let uie  tell   vou, sii',
further, i hat Canadians owe allegiance
first to the empire of which Canada
forms a part and that they intend remaining British; and should tlie lima
ever arrive whftl any Canadian government will demand tli.' allegiance
of Canadians to an independent Canada on the one hand, in preference to
the old empire, including Canada, on
the other, tho rebel will be he who declines to stand by tho old British empire. ! think, judging by the general
conduct of these gentlemen, that the
time has arrived when we may iis well
lay down the law to theni; aud. if the
time should ever come when these-
hon. gentlemen will undertake to
bring about such a condition of affairs
as they would lead us to believe they
have in view, they will find that they
have to depend on hortss alone, and
that it will require something more
than horses to accomplish what, they
desire, Let me tell tin* right hon. the
lirst minister furthermore thnt Lord
Dundonald is no foreigner and 'no
straii'.r >r in this dominion."

For the week 21 tons of oro was
shipped from the division.coming from
the Ottawa. Two tons of this went to
.lersey City, to undergo a thorough
test as to concentrating qualities, and
the remainder was sent to Nelson. A
couple of other cars are about ready
to go forward and from now on tho
output from the Ottawa will be large.
At Enterprise Landing is also a couple
of ears of ore, other hike business
preventing tlie Ixiat handling the stuff.
Small shipments are being arranged
at a number of lesser properties.
Notwithstanding the apparent dull
times in the camp, there has been
more ore shipped for the first six ■
months of the year than in 1908, the
increase amounting to aliout a third.
The outlook is, too,.that to the end of.
the year the same ratio will bt; maintained, as the Enterprise and Ottawa
are in shape to ship 100 tons each a
month. Other properties will join iu
once and awhile.tnaking an aggregate
of respectable proportions. To date
the total is 708 tons.
For 11103 the oro shipments from
the loeal division amounted to 1839
tons, made up from 17 properties.

When Bmniivg
"Did ihe Elegant"
By W. BERT POSTER
...Copyright, 1003, by T. C. McCluro...
0-*=
It was a fierce play. But tbere sat
Binning, with a beautiful smile on his
face nnd applauding harder than the
ushers.
I turned upon him when the curtain
went down nnd said crossly, "Did you
ever see such rot?"
"Is it? I didn't notice," he replied,
■till smiling. "Fnct wns I was thinking of tlie first time I ever enme to this
old ranch. And, oddly enough, I sat in
this very seat My goodness, how timo
does fly!" he ndded. witb the air of n
man discovering a heretofore unknown
fact
"Tempus certainly fngits," I remarked, settling back to hear, "llut go
on with the tale."
"Ah, nnd lt is a talc— n tale of woe,"
he returned. "It hnppened n good hit
ago, too; not long nfter I enme down
bere to thc city, believing In t**iy greenness thnt I could cut a swath in law
that would lay over anything I could
do In the plow making line.
"Dad got me a chnncc with n good
firm and then paid no further attention
to me—flnnnclnl attention, I mean. I
was as lonely ns n strange cat at lirst.
but after a few months one of tbe boys
ln the office introduced nie to n rather
nice family up town.
"Thero were three girls in the family, nnd ns I had hardly spoke.ii to n
.girl since leaving home this introduction seemed n godsend to me. Hut
I've wondered since If niy fellow clerk
did not Introduce mc simply to mnke
hla own escape from matrimonial toils
the easier. As my visits Increased his
decreased.
"It came to me finally thnt I could
not continue to nceept tho hospitality
they showed me without in some way
returning lt. I couldn't Invite one of
the girls out without taking the mother along, nnd ln that case it would
have been equal to a declaration of
love ln the eyes of the family. Germans are mighty careful that way.
"So it was up to me to treat everybody alike. And I was determined
to do the elegant I Invited tbe bunch,
daughters nnd mamma nnd papa, to
go to the* theater; bought sis seats
right ln this very row.
"It pretty nearly cleaned me out.
Blx dollars was two-thirds of n week's
ealary, and after mentally figuring lt
up I decided that I would excuse myself after the show and let my guests
go home alone. I could not afford
even another round of car fares.
"Well, we rustled Into'our seats like
• flock of pigeons, papa nt one end
and myself here on the aisle. After
the first two or threo numbers on the
programme the waiters got extremely
busy. To tell you tho truth, 1 hnd
not taken into consideration the fact
that liquid refreshments were served,
but I figured that I could stand one
round for the crowd, even if I hnd to
walk from the office to my lodgings
several evenings to pay for it.
"So I suggested n drink to the girl
next to me. She took mo up with
positively frightful alacrity nnd passed on the proposition to the others. I
turned to beckon the wnlter, intending
to order six of those foaming glasses
in an offhand manner, bound to Impress the observer with the fact thnt
I was the real thing.
"'Oh, Mr. Binning,' said the daughter next to mc, 'I think I'll tnke n
lemonade!'
" 'And so will I, Mr. Binning,' snid
tho second sister. The third nnd mamma followed suit. Whew! In those
few seconds my collar wilted.
"Even the old man, evidently eon-
■ldcrlng thnt I would he offended if he
ordered beer, nsked for Something In
the line of mixed poison that I knew
plaguey well he'd never tnsted. Then
the wnlter, with Increasing affability,
looked nt nie.
"It's a terrible thing to bo n coward,
Jack. I wanted to blurt out, 'Not
With my money!' But 1 didn't dare,
so I ordered the same mysterious drink
that the old man had spoken for nnd
saw the waiter hurry nwny with a
feeling that he might as well bring
the house oflicer hack with him when
he returned with the refreshments.
"Those six drinks would amount to
$1.80, and I had just 75 cents In my
pocket '
"All the Impossible means of getting out of the entanglement raced
through my mind. 1 couldn't even see
what was going on upon the stage.
Tho falling of the curtain nnd a burst
Of applause roused me.
"That waiter would be bnck soon.
But tliere would be rather n long wnlt
between the last and the next act. I
must get away where I could think.
My guests wero chattering about the
show, and I broke in on them.
" 'Do you know what I've done?' I
said to them with nn nir of candor.
U'vo forgotten iny keys, nnd my landlady locks up at ll o'clock sharp.
"'Whilo this wnlt is on I'll run over
to the house and got theni-lt's luckily
only a few blocks awny. She's a peppery tempered old lady, and if I sliould
ring her up lute she might put me out
In the morning.'
"'Thnt ls too hnd, Mr. Binning,' says
mamma. Her heart was opened. 'We
can put you up overnight'
"I bnd a dozen reasons why I could
not accept the hospitality offered. And
all the time I feared that waiter would
heave in sight with his tray of fancy
drinks!
"I grabbed my hat. I dared not tnke
my overcont I'll be buck before the
next turn,* I declared nnd rushed up
tho aisle.
"am I left my seat the stage lunnu
for ci mo from behind the scenes ana
signaled the orchestra leader to stop,
'lit Dr. Harrity is in the audience,* I
heard him sny, 'there Is a telegram nt
the box otlice for bim.'
"As I got Into the corridor I saw a
tall man in a tall hut make a break for
the corridor too. I accepted a retu-n
check, but I didn't believe I should
have any use for lt, for where I was to
find the balance of that $1.80 I did not
know.
"When I reached the sidewalk there
was tho man In the tall bnt, with a policeman, shouting for a cab. There
was one standing across the street, but
the driver wos missing. 'He's in somo
saloon along here,' 1 heard the policeman sny.   'I'll look for him, doctor.'
"'Find him, or I'll take the cub my-
selt I've got to get to Forty-third
street instantly!' the physician cried.
'I'd give $5 to get there ln ten minutes!'
The cop disappeared and the doctor
ran across tbe street to be near tlio
cab when tjie driver nppenred. And I
was right by his side.
"Five dollars! Why, at the minute,
.Tack, I'd have committed highway robbery for that sum!
'• 'You jump in,' snld I to the doctor.
'I'll get you there. What's tlie number?'
"He gave me a look which assured
mo ho knew I was not the driver of
the cnb, but ho told me the number.
'I'll give you ?5 if you're there ln ten
minutes,' he said.
"I expected to hear the officer or the
driver of the turnout yelling at me to
6top. But the doctor wasn't in the cnb
any quicker thnn I was up on tho high
seat. And I woko thnt cab horse up.
"Inside of the ten minutes we
stopped before the number Dr. Hnr-
rity gave me. He wns out and up tho
steps ringing the bell ln a flash. For a
second 1 thought the promised t?5 wns
getting nwny from me nnd I had made
a criminal of myself for nothing.
"I leaped down just as the door of
the house opened. A mnn let the doctor In, but I seized his coat tails before
he could disappear.
"The doctor tried to jerk away, but I
hung on. 'Johnson,' he shouted to the
serving man, 'give this fool $5 and
kick hlm out!' But I didn't wait to be
kicked nfter getting my grip on the
fiver.
"You can bet that I wasn't to be
hired to drive thnt cnb buck to the theater. I took a car down the nvenuo
and walked calmly Into the lobby just
as the orchestra began to piny the introduction for the first number after
the intermission.
"As I passed in thore were the officer
nnd nn excited cnbmnn jnwing each
other,' with n curious crowd nbout
theni. Evidently cabby blamed the policeman for tbo disappearance of his
rig.
"I slid Into this sent, Jack, Just ns
the curtain went up. Thero were the
glasses on the shelf ln front of my
guests, nnd I snw the waiter, rather
anxious by now, hovering nbout.
" 'Oh, I forgot to pay for these
drinks,' I remarked and passed Over
the liver with an air which evidently
impressed the old gentleman nt the
other end of the row with my financial
stability.
"He looked vastly relieved, mamma
smiled again benignly, the girls gab-
Lied, and I—well, you enn bet I never
tried again to do tbe elegant on $0 per
week."

As he stepped out of the theater ho
stopped to light a cigarette and nt the
same moment heard himself nddressed:
"If ye please, sir, gimme somethln*
fer me littlo brother nn' Bister; they'ro
home, cold nn' hungry, an* we ain't got
no parents."
He turned and snw a diminutive girl,
nbout twelve yenrs old. He had seen
the girl before ond lind watched her
piny the same gnmo and had heard
her tell the same story to people outside thc theater several times uud
know It nil for a "fake."
Ho walked on.
"Jest think; no parents—ain't It awful;" sir? Them little children!" She
wns keeping pace with him.
"Go home," he snld, not unkindly. "Do
you wnut to be arrested for begging?
Go home."
"How kin I go homo with nuthln'
fer the kids? Ah, if they only had
some parents to look nfter 'em! But
dere's only mc."
Ho put his bnnd In his pocket.
Tbe child hastened to clinch matters
with tho old, tiresome wull:
"Jest to think, sir; no parents."
Tho hand emerged from the pocket,
nnd iu it wns a dollar bill.
"Here, little girl," he said. "I oughtn't

Overcame tho Trouble.
"Not only do I not hesitato to declare tho benefit I hnve received from
Dr, Williams' I'ink l'ills, but I feel it
my duty to do ho."    Those are the
words which Mr.  Edward Lnvoio, of
St.  Jerome,  Que., lately addressed to
i this editor of L'Avonlr du Nord, whon
I rolating tho story of his curo.    Mr.
I Lavole is well known in St. Jerome,
' and    whnt    ho    snys   carries   weight
I among thoso who know him.     For a
. considerable   time   lio was   a   groat
' sufferer from dyspepsia, which caused
! severe headaches,  pains in tho stotu-
ach and sometimes   nausea.      Soino-
I times he felt us though ho would suf-
[ locate,   ho would become dizzy,   and
! experienced ringing noises in tho cars.
'His   appetito   becamo   poor,   and his
general health so bad that   ho found
it almost   impossible   to   work,   and
when the headaches attacked hiin he
had to quit work.   For six months,
ho says,  ho  suffered  both  physically
and mentally more than can  be im-
aglned.    During   this   time   ho took
medicine from   several doctors,    but
found no help. Then ono day he read
of the cure of a similar caso through
the uso of Dr.  Williams'  I'ink I'illa,
anil decided  to try thorn.     Ho used
the pills for a couple of months, and
tliey have made him feel liko a new
person,     llo   is   no longer troubled
with any ol tho old symptoms,   and
says ho can now go about his work
as though ho never had dyspepsia.
Tho digestive organs—liko all the
othor orguns of the body—got their
strength anil nourishment from the
blood. Dr. Williams' Fink Pills actually make now blood. This new
blood strengthens the stomach,
stimulates tho liver, regulates the
bowels and sets tho whole digestive
system in a healthy, vigorous state,
flood blood is tho true secret of good
health. That is why Dr. Williams'
Pink l'ills always bring good health
to thoso who use them. You can gat

Some Disadvantages,
'•I consider that Texas and New Mes
Ico nre the two bcs;t states for Ciltti,

■theni cumes Colorado." This Is tin
opinion of .1. N. Button, a prominent
cattleman from Australia, who htu.
been spending the lust year ou cuttle
ranches In Uie west.
"Vour facilities for raising stock In
this country are far superior to ours.
Our greatest drawback Is In the shipping of cattle, Most pf my ranches
lire located in Queensland, but lu all
of Aufftralln there are less than 1,400
miles of railroad, and that much truckage can be found lu any Bluglo state in
this country."
Mr. Sutton stated that most of the
cattle raised in Australia are sold rlghl
there In the conl incut. Some ure ship
ped to Africa, but tho heaviest exportation is in the shape of frozen moat
The methods of raisin;,' cattle In Aus
triiliu are similar to th08B employed lu
this country.
"But tho advantage there is," continued Mr. Sutton, "that kind can he ob
tallied cheaper, und more acreage Is
allotted to one man, In staking out
lund -and tbere i.-' s'.iil a great deal
that cun bo secured—ono porson Is allowed to take as high us 20.000 acres
If he wishes that much, In leasing
land it can be acquired as cheap ns
one-half to a cent an acre, the lease
extending for n period of thirty years,
At the end of that time if you do not
wish lo renew the lease you are paid
by tho original owner the full amount
(hat has been expended In improvements."
Mr. Sutton stilted that they had little or no trouble With cattle thieves,
lie said that Australia is more productive In raising sheep than cattle.
He estimated that tliere are 80,000,000
sheep in the country at present, while
before the drought that affected that
country six years u«o the number wus
almost twice that much. The Dnest
quality of wool is manufactured there,
and more attention is given to the
sheep raising industry. — Denver Republican.
The  Silver Leaf  Cure.
According to the l'jiris papers, the
physicians have bit upon a new method of treating wounds. A sheet of
silver or silver leaf is nil that is necessary. The silver Is simply placed on
the wound or ulcer, and as it sticks
closely to the surface u little cotton
soaked in collodion is sullicient to
keep it in place. The effects of this
sheet of silver nre very remarkable,
Where the wound is a recent one and
not contaminated with microbes the
wound quickly heals under the Influence of the silver without inllamniu-
tion or suppuration and without presenting the slightest bad symptom.
Conditions nre just as favorable in
cases of ulcers—chronic ulcer of the
leg, for example—in which case the
suppuration decreases little by little,
while the ulcerated surface gradually
becomes covered with healthy skin,
whieh soon produces a good cicatrice
in place of the ulcer. This Is said to
be due to the remarkable untiseptic
qualities of the metal.

Earl Grey vouchsafes the remark
that he will not be the next governor-
general of Canada, lie ought to know.
The Canada Eastern & New Brunswick railway is being purchased by the
dominion goverriirienl and added to
the Intercolonial system. Why not
extend the western end of the Intercolonial to the Pacific?
Tho dominion government has re-
plii*d to the British Columbia delegation, denying to the province the right
to control the seacoast fisheries. It
means that two sets of regulations will
be in vogue governing salmon fishing,
resulting in much confusion.
The government have issued the licenses to prospect for coal and petroleum in the famous block of land in
south East Kootenay, known as lot
•i59!5, nnd, accordingly, the anxious
souls of complaining Liberals Bhould
for the nonce rest easy aud lie satis-
lied. Delay has been caused lo enable
the time of protest for the C.P.R.
against the cancelling act of hist session to elapse. An Immense number
of locations have beeu made within
tho disputed area, so many indeed
that it would be impossible for the
government to determine the prior
rights of the claimants, so they bave
evolved a clever scheme out,of the
difficulty. Licenses are issued to fill
stakers and the latter must place their
claims, in case of dispute, before the
courts for adjudication, the lands be
ing reserved from pre-emption or sale.
No license fees will be returned, and
as the cost of each license is $100, it
can easily be seen the government will
make ii pot of money. It is a capital
scheme and one that will prove of
lasting enrichment to the provincial
exchequer. The lands in question are
held to lx* extremely valuable and are
bound to be extensively exploited by
iimnied men, adding greatly to the
wealth and population of the country.
It is only mete and right then that the
• province should profit from the devel*
(p.nent of the resources of the section,
and the government have taken the
Btap to get the most out of it, th.' an
mini renewal of licenses providing a
sub-'antiid   revenue   for   the  public
welfare.
