North l.'ork or Kettle  Itiver Will Attract
A new district that is destined to
attract attention from mining men is
the country surrounding the head
waters of the north fork of Kettle
river. Some years ago it was run over,
principally by prospectors from New
Denver, and many locations made,
some of which have been partially develop tl. Assays from various claims
have at length made an impression on
the outside and capital Is now forthcoming to prove tho merits of the
Un Saturday Wm. Thomlinson, of
New Denver, one of the Iw st mining
men in the Slocan, passed through
here to the Kettle river country, lie
h'f; been retained by a syndicate of
St.Paul capitalists to open up a group
of claims for them there,known as the
Jim Hill group. There are four claims
in the bunch and were acquired by the
present owners last fall. There is a
perfect network of ledges on the
claims, the principal one of which
averages 22.) oz in silver, 40 por cent
lead and $10 in gold.
Mr. Thomlinson was to outfit in
Nelsou and go into the new field by
way of Fire Valley. His claims are
located 15 miles south of Monasheo,
and to reach Ihem he will build a new
trail 12 miles in length, afterwards to
lio converted into a wagon road, If
the Keltic river wagon road is built

Clnn lo Meet ut   l.iniis\ lilo, Kentucky,
During World't Fair.
Great excitement prevails among
the members of the multitudinous clan
Smith, scattered in every hole and corner of the continent. Announcement
has been made through the columns
of th" American press that John Cabell Smith, of Louisville, Kentucky,
has formulated a scheme for all and
sundry ofthe clan to meet in his city
while the world's fair is on at St.
Louis. He is a man of wealth and is
willing to spend 180,000 on entertaining his kin during tho three days of
the encampment. None but genuine
Smiths are to apply. No Smyth,
Sinyllie, Schmidt, or any other oor
ruptiou of the good old solid name of
Smith need apply.us nine but the real
brand will be recognized. The Ram-
Bays, McLeans, Campbells, and many
other lesser clans of note have had
their family gatherings, and why not
the Smiths 1 Sur.', ihey are as numerous as the sands of the sea, and all
of sterling worth.
By the same token Aid. A.G.Smith,
tha chieftain of the elan in Sloean. is
loyally supporting his Kentucky kinsman's scheme, and has a notice of the
plan posted up in his store. That
sanv.- notice Las got The Dhii.i. man
-whose cognomen is an extended arrangement of the family nana; into a
tmgle, as the following letter will demonstrate} still the game is worth the
Kditoi: Drill:
Sir,- I \va« informed by a commercial traveler that he saw a notice in
your office window, from .some certain
city in Kentucky, where a man by the
n ime of Smith was bringing together
all Smiths,    if there is  any  truth in

•.,:'. .-. If you have hi-: address kindly
forward it to me,and 1 will be obliged
to you for same.   Yours respectfully,

London reports that a large part of
the proceeds of the recent Japanese
In:, a is in be u iod to purchase silver is
received with great satisfaction by silver interests in America. Japan has
purchased two millions of Mexican
silver dollars,and it has been expected
lime Bhe would largely increase her silvor coinage. While Japan is on a gold basis, she has long
Oi..a considering enlarging her silver
circulation. If Japan comes in the
r,i.ui',: for a large amount of silver, it
woultl Btrougly lead to an advance in
price, considering the large demand
also from China and India. Silver
producers state that not over four or
live million ounces per month could be
securt d now, as practically no Btock is
on baud in either Amsrii a or England,
nor could much l>e obtained In Mexico.
In buying Mexican dollars the Japanese government is reported paying 8
to 5 per conl premium ovor silver .bars,
hence it is likely Japan would prefer
bars for coinage if needing a large

Tbe Heavy Trained Dress Verses
the Airy Short One—Veils and the
Kew  Coiffure  Arrangement.
For pictorial representation is selected a charming bridal gown of white
moussellne de duchesso, the skirt cut
ln deep vnndykes, edged with a lovely
Irish crochet point lace and falling
over a quantity of white net frills,
stitched with rows of narrow white
satin ribbon and fine white silk medallion lace, which laee is also again
' used ln vertical lines on the back of
tbe skirt. Particularly dainty is the
corsage, with its deep bertha of laee
bmde's oown.
•nd bouffant sleeves of net run with
ribbon, while the graceful bridal veil
of net has a large truo lovers' knot
embroidered in each corner in white
floss silk. The sccoud cut shows two
gowns of a trousseau, one being the
going away gown.
White satin is still one of the handsomest of wedding gowns and gives a
better effect than tbe newer diaphanous materials when made with a very
long train. Charming as are the chiffons, nets, moussellnes de soie and
other filmy fabrics, they nre not well
adapted to very long trains. Hence
the train ln these materials is usually
much shortened.
• Lace veils, especially if they are
liolrloouis, are quite the vogue, but
otherwise there is nothing so charmingly becoming nnd altogether appropriate as the very line chiffon veils
that crown the costume with a sort of
radiant softness nnd grace.
. Among the latest fads for bridesmaids Is the substitution of the elaborate coiffure and veil for tbe hat that
Los been so long worn. At a recent
■well  New  York   wedding the  eight
bridesmaids, gowned In white chiffon
draped ovor pink satin, wore three
pink or three white ostrich tips arranged in court fashion, from whieh
was draped a long scarf veil that hung
dowii the back. Another fancy is the

The middle portions of bodices iu
general are full or given that modification of fullness which plaits achieve,

are further emphasized by many new

are to be retained. This movement

from dart fitted bodices, whicb, no

Deantlful    Sprint*;    Confections    For
Dressy  or  Sninrt  Street  Wear.
Pink straw, white lace nnd flowers
compose tbe lovely Easter confection
of the upper figure sketched by tbe
Delineator, while white straw, black
straw and a black quill form tbe other
very smart affair. The same authority says:
There ls a suggestion of the picturesque "baby" hut in some of the
dressy models. One of rare beauty
was made entirely of ruffles" of lace
outlined with gold. The lace was
caught up at the left side, where the
palest pink roses nestled and fell over
on the hair. In black lace ruffles edged
with gold, American Beauty roses supplanting the pink ones, this would be
a striking style for a young brunette.
The lace ruffle falls over the brim and
sbndes the face slightly in these new
'•baby" hats, and ofttiines a pretty
touch is given by a spray of blossoms
caught ln the ribbon bow and trailing
over the brim to tbo back, wbere it
falls on the hnlr. For street wear this
pretty bat is fashioned of glace taffeta
or liberty satin. It should match the
gown in color.
The blnck picture hat trimmed with
a white lyre feather is one of the essential Items of a fashionable wardrobe, nnd it has come forth again in
tulle and lace. The brim of this hat Is
straight nnd suggests tlie large, round
sailor. It Is slightly raised at the left
side nnd in front by a bandeau. Hats
of this type are becoming to almost
every woman, but tbey should be worn
only upon dressy occasions.
There is a touch of gold in nearly
all of the newest moiJels, and it is rumored "*that this military suggestion
will be more and more ln evidence as
the season progresses.

The cellar should receive a daily airing. This docs not mean to leave the
windows open long enough to freeze
the vegetables and fruit, but in tbo severe cold weather let the windows bo
opened to allow a circulation of fresh

Furs dark in coior may bo cleaned
first by brushing them well with a
switch, after hanging over a line, then
by rubbing well heated cedar or mahogany sawdust into the fur nn.l
brushing out again. The best way to
remove the same after the cleaning ia
done is to put tho fur side down on
feather pillows and beat thoroughly or
until all dust is removed.
If the furs are soiled at neck or
wrists, they may be cleaned with gasoline—of course in a room or outdoors,
when* no fire is.
White furs may be cleaned with hot
cornmeal (white), the same being rubbed Into the fur ns described above for
the dark furs witb sawdust. Iloth the
dark and white furs should be hung
outdoors in a shady place after cleaning.
Magnesia may also be used for cleaning light colored or white furs, lt
should be used in cakes and tbe cake
rubbed upon tbe fur.

Launders  Well on  Linen.
Mark on a piece of rather lightweight
pasteboard a circle nbout an eighth of
an inch larger than you wish the completed medallion to be. Adjust your
sewing machine to its longest stitch
and with coarse thread stitch around
the circle. Now make a hole in the
center of the circle, nnd you have the
frame complete for your wheel. See
second cut.
Take a long thread (two or three
yards) and pass half through the hole
formed of a hoop of wire about nn
inch wide, over which ls twisted black
or colored velvet ribbon.
Flower toques and turbans nre especially attractive at this season, for the
llowers that now pervade tbe millinery
world have copied naturo very closely,
some of them almost defying detection
as Imitations. There nre llowers,
though, tbat In no way suggest naturo
which are nevertheless beautiful and
full of delightful possibilities.
The new toques are much smaller
than those that were worn during tho
past season. They nro quite oval in
shape, forming almost a point In front.
At tbe sides tbey are close fitting, nnd
in nearly every Instance a long lace
drapery that falls over ot the back is
a distinguishing feature. All sorts of
materials from coarse straw to tho
filmiest lace will be employed to fashion these modish hats.
A cavalier gown composed entirely
©f tiny red rosebuds ls the distinctive
feature of a new nnd dressy hat. Tho
wide, straight brim ls of black chiin-

tho laee falling over.
So fashionable Is ostrich plumage
tbat ln some cases it forms almost the
entire hat. A model of rare beauty

brim of cream lace.
The violet bat ls iucluded ln almost
every spring outfit.
Rice  Mold  With  Maple  Suffar.
Wash well one cupful of rice, drop
into boiling salted water and keep nt a
galloping boil until the grains are tender all through. This will take about
from twelve to eighteen minutes, De-
cording to tbe variety of rice. Drain,
place in a saucepan witli one-half of a
cupful of milk and one-quarter of a
cupful of cream and cook very slowly
until tho liquid is absorbed. Have
ready a buttered mold. Fill this with
the rice, tapping lt sharply from time
to time that the rice may settle well.
Stand in the open oven for five minutes, then turn out on a heated dish.
Serve with an abundance of good butter and scraped maple sugar. This is
an old New England dish and a very
good one, says Table Talk.

Ono  View  ot   Hlm-A  New  Ideal  of
Training Suggested.
It is now generally agreed that man
is expected to work out his own life
problem, tbe age of miracles and special dispensations being long past.
Therefore wben tbe boy, from the highest social grade to the lowest, ls found
to be tbe moral inferior of the girl of
bis own age nnd station even the least
thoughtful will understand that there
must be grave fault in training to
bring about such a result. Thut the
case may not seem to be overstated,
lot representative facts be cited. For
example, educators in the public schools
are at the moment demanding the re
turn of corporal punishment ns a
disciplinary measure for boys. Asked,
"If tbe law were passed would lt not
have to apply also to girls?" lt was
answered that although lt would the
question wus of no moment, ns when a
similar law wns operative a few years
ngo not n girl had made herself eligible for rod punishment. The agitation
is wholly in behalf of boys. Take another example; In Harvard university
this term the dean of the Lawrence
Scientific school, Professor Sbaler, appeared before the COO students iu the
geology class nnd delivered a scathing
address on tbeir conduct toward a substitute professor. This hud consisted
in burling copper cents, chalk, books
and old shoes. At a later lecture the
missiles Included two eggs. The justly indignant dean stutcd that during
most of the thirty yeurs he hnd been
instructor his audiences bnd been made
up of gentlemen, but that for lhe lust
few years classes of loafers had been
coming into tbe university.
Now, to one who disbelieves, as all
Intelligent persons must, ln Inherent
moral superiority of girls and women
there must bo some reason for this universal barbarism of tlie boy, for Unit
Is what ails hlm. The reason is not
far to seek, nnd it Is nil epitomized iii
that much quoted and much esteemed
maxim, "Boys will be boys." from
the time, In his baby days, when be is
given a drum or a trumpet or some
other ear splitting, noise producing article und encouraged to disregard the
rights of Others in the matter of reasonable quiet until be pusses from
parental control be la allowed a license
and tolerated iu lines of conduct which
breed In him a profound contempt for
tiie rights of any whom he may bully
or override, At the bottom nt nil boyish wrongdoing Is that I ml i (Terence to
tiie rights of others. The remedy lies
wholly with parent.! nnd educators.
Lot US hope the time is not far dis-
tr.r.t when the ideal for boys will be
changed from "boys will be boys"
(with nil the licenses therein implied)
to high chivalry in all things. -Vogue.

in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
the printer
