Monday nignt was anything i lse than
a huge burlesque. Tin* Sandon hoc
keyists stopped over here a day on
theii' return from the Kossland carnival, and consented to oxhibit themselves before au admiring audience of
Slocanites, At least six of them did.
Slocan was suppospd to oppose them
in a game, but the accent must be
placed on tho "supposed," for never
at any stage of the performance did
their opposition approach tho strenuous, li was remarkable what thoso
follows from th i Silver City did with

Figure-! have recently been mude

shipped by the various properties in

silver during 1U0'2 the value per ton is
high, more so on the average than in
the older portion of the Slocan camp.
There men total of 6333 tons shipped
during the year and the average value
per ton works out at $91, or an aggregate value of $576,808, which is slight-

The annual meeting of the Le Roi
mine. Rowland, was held in London,
Fn;,'., 00 Jan. s30. It was there stated
that the property was bee of debt and
with a good surplus, nnd that a dividend ink-lit shortly U' expected, In
the course of his remarks, Anthony
McMillan, noanoging director, stated:
••The Hunk of Montreal has stood loyally by the company, rendering it tho
greatest assistance, und our warmest
ih,inks are due the bunk. The December accounts huve not yet arrived
from Boesland, therefore \ have not
the ex,mt details, but on December 81
there were Coating liabilities amounting ts> about WMHiO.pivsuiiiabiy connected with such Items ns accrued accounts ainl wages, interest, tuxes.ete..
I at Rossland nnd Northport. At the
| same time there was an advance of
' 69000 or £10,000 "»cured on the
second-class ore dump at the Le Roi
mine, which is retired gradually out
1 of profits derived from the sales of ore
I therefrom. Since Hay last this par
tlcular advance had been discrwsea by
about £10,000,   Apart from this then
is not   today one penny of debt so tur
as the Le Roi mine is concerned.
"To make this matter still clearer,
if possible, the position viewed in the
liL-lit of the latest advice from our
manager appears to be this, that if we
choose to suspend operations for a lew
weeks and clean up everything on
hand nt the smelter, nnd pay nil- tho
bank, we should then have about
£60,000 to the goo* I In cash, In addition to the mine and its machinery,
the smelter and its equipment, lauus
and quarries,"

will be raised from 15 to 60 per cent.

The honor of the Tenth hail been
smircheU. The rank and file growled
lt out ln barracks, the officers whispered It to each other, and ns the Lionel sat on the veranda of his bungalow and admitted tt to hluiseif be laid
much of the blame on his owu shoulders.
The robber bauds of India, known as
dacolts, had been busy around Aliwal,
and squads of British cavalry were being seut out every few days to destroy
them. Your true dacoit Is not only a
robber, but a fighter as well. He robs
his owu race wheuever opportunity offers and fights the llritish whenever
and wherever he meets them, lie Is a
good shot, a brave foe, and there are
honor and promotion to be had lu wiping hlm off the face of the earth.
Young Danforth had lately joined the
Tenth. He had family and political in-
flueuce and a fortune behind him. and
he had a personality which made
friends. There could be no greater
privilege than to be ss*nt out at the
head of a detachment to givo the da-
coits a whirl. When the time came
that the colonel could do young Thin-
forth this favor, he had a long and
quiet talk with him. He posted him
as to the characteristics and tactics of
the foe aud warned him of the pitfalls that even veteran officers might
fall into. He was to find tlie enemy
•ml ds-stroy him. but he was cautioned
against iuipctuousity and u- is**s sacrifice of men. Tliis expedition was to
be the young otfii-er's "try out." He
had never Ueeu under fire, and he could
not claim full kinship with the regiment until lie has;.
They gave young Danforth a British
eergeant and corporal and thirty-eight
Sikh troopers. Under an officer In
•whom he has conii.lence there Is no
better soldier that the Sikh. His only
weak point is that he must have bis
fs* In trout of hlm. Danforth had the
luek to strike a band of robbers within
twenty miles of tbe post. They had
captured a village and were pillaging.
lt was testlfled to by a dozen Sikhs
that he was as cool as an old veteran.
He seut scouts forward to ascertain the
strength of the • ie my and the lay of
tbe land and at the head of his forty
men he charged Into tbe village aud
routed out the ban.l of 150. He lost
two men and killed a dawn, and It was
a little affair to be proud of. He held
bis men well lu baud and was on the
watch for trickery, aud had ull tbe
troopers been Europeans all would have
gone well. As the robbers retreated
over broken ground men were tluug off
from cither flank to create an umi.usb.
They were few in number and ouly
half hearted, but as thvy cp. ::. <1 tire
the Sikhs boltesl. There were confusion
•ud a rout and the pursuers became In
turn the pursued. When the flight end-
sedt the sergeant «nd corporal were
missing.
A court martial was demanded by
young Danforth. No sootier had tbe
detachment returned than the remnant
of the Sikhs began to whisper about
Incompetency ansl cowardice. They
praise-d the officer for his tight at the
village, but tbey decfau*ed that his cow-
ardlee wheu be f iund himself in a
tight place had brought about dls -*.- r
His defeuse was straightforward aud
clear. There was not an officer who
doubted one of Iiis statements, and he
was honorably aojultted of the charge;
but a stain had beta left behind. It
was felt by men nnd officers tbat to be
even suspected of cvwardiee was a
smirch ou the name of the regiment. It
was agreed that the K.kbs bad lied to
excuse their own cowardice, ainl there
was the verdict of tbe cuurt martial,
yet the cloud was not diss-ipated.
Young Danforth could not fail to notice the change lu the attitude of bis
brother officers. Ths y did not cut him,
but tbey had to make an effort to be
frieudly. Pretty soon hints wire
thrown out that it would be well for
bim to transfer or leave the *>rvlce.
Then be weut to tlse colonel nud s-iiJ:
"I was charged with eowardica by the
Blkhs. Hail my sergeant and corporal
lived to come based with me 1 couid
have had witnesses to prove to the • ■ :,
trary. Tlie court martial took u.y word,
however, and I was honorably aojuit*
tod. I reu!.z>- tbat 1 am tainted. There
are bints tbat I ought to transfer or resign. With your permission I shall remain right here ami hope for scinctbiog
to happen."
"I believe that tbe Sikhs [asrlured
themselves." quiet y replied tbe colonel,
"and perhaps It Will be tbe wisest tblng
you can do to stay tiis."
Tbe words were klis.1 Hnd fair, but no
grip of tbe hand accompanied tbem. lo
bis heart of b<-arts tbe colonel bad
hoped tbe subaltern Woiiid go uway.

cared to remain. Youug Danforth ls*sl

away before anything happened to pal
his rase lu a nnsre fnvoruble light. Then
a number of dacolts were captured.
Among them were two or three who

tbey praised the COOragf le* hasl exhlb-

but the subaltern gave no sign that he
noticed lt or wus ptaaed over It.
A few months later there arrlvi'd a
party of civil oinsinis and tbelr wives
who were on a Junket 'I ley had several elephants willi tbem for tlgi r hunting, and within twentj in Ilea of tbe

Young Danforth waa oue of the three
officers cietaiiiHl to arraiis>* a" I mat • p
the hunt. With the en .; • ■■ ... '-.'lur
of Nepal ansl his wife was I.a.iy i "if
ton. aud the two ladies were by uo
means novices in the simrt of tiger
huuting. When the hum bad been fairly entered upon, tbey occupied a bow-
dan on the Isaek of a big elephant to-
gether and would not admit any on*
else. A tiger had been driven by the
beaters iuto a swamp a mile loug by
half a mile broad, aud Into this spot,
grown up to r*?eds aud boabea uutil the
eyea could scarcely penetrate, '-mslied
the elephants and horses. The Idea was
I to drive the tiger out upon clearer
j ground to the west, where he could be
reached, and everybody made as much
j noise as possible. He was a crafty
bsiist. nnd for two hours he refused to
| break cover.
The elephant on which the two ladies
were mounted bad taken the l.'.id and
been steady enough, but after awhile
something rattiest him, and he boltesl
across the swan.p toward the tr«*s.
His mahout used every exertion to stop
or turn blm. but the old fellow wus in
a panic. To the surprise of everybody,
the tiger followed at bis bee'.s. though
In a furtive way, as If bent mil} on et*
eai-e. Witb tbe elephant making a
mad rush for a low branch, tree that
he might get rid of the bunion on llis
back Lady Clifton took swift aim at
the tiger and wounded blm. The
wound provoked Ills auger, and be
sprang forward on tbe elephant's n*iir
Just as tbe trs?e was readied am! the
branches swept the bowdah to the
ground. A 8e<*ond later and the two
ladies lay on the earth among tbe fragments, both stunned by the fall, aud
the tiger stood with bis paws upon the
body of Lady Clifton and growled and
snarled at the dozen spectators.
Fortune had given young Danfortb
his opportunity. As a sort of terror
held everybody else helpless, be flung
himself from his horse, grabbed a bog
spear from the band of a chattering
native and advanced npon the beast.
He bad to cover sixty feet of clear
ground, and those who looked on said
that tbe tiger's eyes biased lire and every hair on bis liaek stood up as tbe
officer walksad steadily forward. A
dozeu voices called to blm lo look nut,
but he made uo halt. As be drew
nearer the beast croucbed for a spring,
and when be wns within ten feet the
spring was made. Down went the
mau on his knees and up went tbe
spear, and when the onlookers glanced
again the mau was ou bis feet ami unhurt aud the tiger was rolling over and
over on the earth with the point s.f the
spear sticking out of his back.
The ladles had not been seriously
hurt, but at least ore of tbem bad been
saved from the timer's maw. Young
Danforth was the hero of the hour.
Every officer ln the regiment took bim
by the hand and offen-d congratulu*
tions, and his cotatel patted hlm on the
shoulder and said:
"My dear boy. it was the coolest.
bravest thing I ever heard of. and it
makes us all proud of you."

WHEAT—The past week has been
rather quiet In the wheat trade. Tho
feeling, however, bus been firm, and I Whut T
although the volume of trade in ihe
speculative markets haa been coui-
ptiiutively light, prices in these markets show a gain of li to ljc over
closing prices of a weok ago. France
has required to import but little
wheat since the season of 181*7-8,
When, owing to the serious winter

the prosont time, although the duty

\ WONDERFUL RECORD,
Many     so-called   " specilics "     and
"sores"   for     Rheumatism   have   already been brought before the public; but when rheumatism, Kouralgla,
and     kindred    diseases    hau   becomr
chronic and threaten serious insults,
.. :  in iy  rest assured thnt they  will
alp   b t     very    little,   if  uny.      Al
though not recommended   as "inful
lible,"  the peculiar qualities oi   Si
Jacobs im    especially adapt, ii    to
those   cases     which    may   le  termed
"chronic," und which have prevlous-
.*.   withstood all  known  "specifies,"
.is well as the prescriptions of   the
best physlciaju.
We would mention, as an example,
the case    of    Mr.    A.  Heilmuiin,  of
Pittsburgh; who suffered with Rheumatism for four yeurs, after valnlj
usine all the best recommended remedies, and exhausting Hie skill of the
most experienced physicians without
even temporary    relief,    it   required
only two bottle* of St. Jacobs Oil
io effect  a permanent cure.   Mr.   •'
Iiaiini.     a    Well     known    cui/.;i    of
Ysiutu'siowii,  Ohio, secured  for    hin
wife, who for twelve years had been
a constant sufferer from Neuralgia In
the  lu'ad.   the  services  of the  ablest
physicians of the land, but they were
unable to do anything for her; half
a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil cured her.
Mr. Wm    Keinhnrt,  Elmore, Wis.,  reports  the case of a neighbor who for
twenty-four years had Buffered so terribly    with   Rheumatism    that,    at
limes,   ho could  hardly move:  a  few
bottles of St. Jacobs Oil cured him.
"To cap  the climax,"   however.   Mr
A   Nelgor, of Taylorvllle, Pa . writes
; h it his mother, who had been a continual sufferer with Rheumatism for
)he past  thirty years,  used one bsit
Ile of St. Jacobs Oil and was imme-
riiately   relieved  of  nil   pain       These
We results which truly deserve to hi'
brought   to  public notice:     but  tliey
.ne nol  exceptions, as will bo- m*oo
•i\   the numorous    other   certlticates
from all parts of the I'nit,'d States
n should be the duty of everyone 'o
call   the   attention of his   Buffering
friends    and  neighbors  to  this  wonderfully efficacious    preparation,   especially  as  tlie low  prise sif  2.**s and
."in cents per bottle places i'  within

PREE  ALKALI.
There ara tew women ln Canada
who have not heard of " free alkali,"
but there are many who do not under-
atand the terra. The terra ls always
used ln connection with soap. lt
any think lt ls meant to convey that
it Is alkali given free with the soap,
then alkali is very dear at the price.
But it does not mean that. A soap
containing free alkali ls a soap In
which the alkali ls not properly Incorporated with the fatty amis used ln
the making of soap, and such a soap
is most Injurious to the clothing nnd
hands. Free alkali ln soap will burn
the nap oft wool and the surface off
linen, coarsen tho skin of the hands,
rendering them liable to eczema, make
the nails brittle and chip off. Sueh
a soap does not possess thorough
clcaiiBing properties. The difference
between a soap containing free alkali
and a neutral soap is easily tested.
Sunliglit Soap Is a neutral BOap, and no
one who has once used Sunlight Boap
for auy time could with satisfaction
go hack to any of the common laundry
BOaps on tho market. Complaints
about the hands and the clothes are
unkuown where Sunlight Soup is used.
