President Shatford Bald it was quite
true the hoard had nol nii't very often
during the year, but a little good had
been accomplished. There was a necessity for a board of trade in Slocan,

was also much the board could do in
support of the city council in advancing the div's interests. He hoped the

At the Black Prince things aro be-

work. The improvements now under

smaller buildings, The winter's supply of wood for mining and fuel purposes is also being cut. Practically
the whole fores' is employed on this
work and probably will Im* so engaged

During the past month over200 feet

crosscut was advanced 78 feet and
drifts run east and west on the vein
for a distance of 80 and 111 feet respectively. The results obtained so
far are suid to lie satisfactory and
some little ore has been taken out. In

Tlie "Curfew" was yet several
niili's south of Tenerife; she ploughed her wny north ward, ignorant ot

A .\oiing   mnu.   stretched at    full
length on a deck chair,  wrung    his
thin fingers    in utter     wretchedness,
even inoiiiieil a little, since ihere was
no  one  ni-iir  lo     observe his  misery.
Throb,   tlii'ob,   throb;  endless  vibrating of the rosso], endless hissing of
the foam-flecked wafer—when would
the Intolerable noise end. and healing
silence ie;gn'"     Healing Silence    was
not far o:f from  h'im.     Ile  knew  it,
he wanted  to steady   his  mind    and
think of it,  but how was continuous
thought possible in the midst of this
jarring tumult?
'lhe deck hud been empty for a
time; clatter anil chink of plates and
the hum of voices rising from the saloon, told that n meal wns in pro-
ersss there. Captain Henslsigh, Ur.
llranil a':d John Ca.vford, were the
lirst to emerge on derk after it. They
had bs*en talking about Alan Twiss,
anil, seeing thnt he lay in a sheltered position forward, they movs*d to
the Stern of the chip to continue
their conversation.
"1 suppose then, lie will not last
long," saisl tin- captain.
"Imps s-iible to sny. He never allowed mo tsi sound his lungs until
to-day; one of them is far gone, and
thu other affected. According to his
own account he comes of a consumptive family and has lis en ill two
years at least. He may live for
weeks or even months; he may die
in a few days."
"Why don't you tell him of his
danger?" nskesl John Cayford. "It
does not seem fair to let any one
drift ao near death without warning.''
"You or I may die before he does,"
returned the doctor laconically,
"think of SimmonsJ"
Simmons was one of the crew, who
had been washed overboard during
heavy weather experiencs-d bs-tws-en
Hobart and the Cape. The Cane lay
far behind them nsiw; the light winds
wore in their favor; the sun rose
daily in a cloudh-ss sky, and shone
over a sea so calm that a strong effort was required before lhe memory
of that tragic time of storm could
bo revived.
"Would it do Twiss anv harm lo
tell him?"
"It might; probably it would. He is
•o nervous and excitable."
"I'e haps he knows already," sug-
gestel the captain hopefully. "Did
he ask uny questions about his condition?"
"Not a question."
"He cannot know," insisted Cayford. "He makes constant reference
to his return to Ms-lbourne in the
"Oh, they often talk of plans that
they are aware they will n*ver live
to carry out; excessive ho|sefulness is
sjuite a feature of the Complaint."
The doctor lit his cigar and turned
away to chat wilh some ladles who
had just appeared on derk.
"Vou acree with mc. Captain, don't
you?" ra:d (Viyford earnestly. "He
must be told."
"Well"—tho captain hesitated —
"I suppose I>r. Hand has his rs*asons;
ft might do harm. I must say I
should prefer to know, if I were in
the poor young fellow's place. He
talks more to you than to any of
us, Mr. Cayford; I daresay you will
have an opportunity to give him just
a hint of his condition." Having
made this reasonable suggestion, the
captain felt that he was relieved from
further responsibility in the matter.
He too walked forward, stopping for
a few moments beside the deck chair.
"Fine day, Mr. Twiss; how are you
"Captain, aro wc far from
As soon as the words were uttered,
they seemed to be caught up and
repeated by the throbbing i-ngines
and the hissing water—Are we far
from Tenerife?—Are we far from
Tenerife? Alan lay with his eyes
closed, breathing painfully, forced to
listen to the ringing sound.
The captain looked off to the horizon for his an-swer.
Three hundrs-d and si*,ty knots since
yesterday; this is Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday — if all goes well we
shall be at Santa Cruz on Wednesday."
"Tlmak yau."
"Oh, this intolerable noise; Santa

Wednesday — hissing uml throbbing
and ringing in his ears! Cnp'a'n
Hensloigh's expression wus gravi
enough when he left tin* 'nvalld
Two or throe ladles walking rapidly up and down the deck, now stepped softly up to the young mun s
side. As he made no movement, they
began to talk in those aggravating
whispers that are so much more penetrating  than  louder sounds.
"He  is  asleep,"   they  assured  each
"How wasted ho looks!"
"You heard  what  the doctor Buid"
Hs must be dying."
"So young,  too!"
"And ho has such    a    pretty   profile!':
"Isn't It sad!"
They stole away on  tip-toe. |
John Cayford remained  where    the I
captain hud left him. Death I He had
never been very near lo death before.
!t  was long since his parents    dis*d,
his  recollection    of  that  time    was
faint and vague; his only sister    had
died  recently,  but  he  was  at a  distance from her, end to hear of death
sloas not produce the same appalling
effect  upon  the s.'iises as  to see    it.
Ho was beginning to experience that
crushing sense  of  Impotence      which
overcomes strength  when  it  is    confronted by greater strength.    He had
never yet been forced to succumb    to
any difficulty,     failure was un    unknown exporienre to him; good luck,
good munagement, and some shrewdness,  had  done uiuch  for him,     and
would do more.     Implicit confidence
in  his    own   strength,   was  his unspoken creed.    He was not a    sellish
man — he was quite as ready to use
his abilities in the service of others as
in  his  own;   others,   indeed,   afforded
him  larger scope  for  exercising     ingenuity,  for they    placed themselves
in dilemmas    which    his forethought
would not allow him    to approach.
Conscious of his own power, he loved
to exert it, and to feel that    people
were dependent on it.    This was thc
explanation    of     the close intimacy
that had sprung up between   himself
and Alan Twiss.    They had met for
tho first time at    Hobart,  and     thc
weakness of the invalid was an irresistible appeal to the strength of his
fellow traveller.        With infinite patience and gentleness, Cayford ministered to the needs of his unfortunate
companion;     he humored his fancies,
read to him, talked to him,   carried
him on deck when he was too feeble
to walk, and sat for hours    by    his
berth fanning him  when he lay exhausted by the extreme heat. It really seemed as though    some reviving
hopefulness had been infused into the
patient — Alan certainly rallied; but
alas! three days ago there had    been
nn attack of hemorrhage and the poor
lad lost all the ground he had gained.    Looking    at him   now, Cayford
saw that he must die, and the sight
was intensely distressing to him. His
own    perfect    health,  and strength,
and good prospects, seemed like cruel
insults offered to the sufferer; insults
for which reparation ought     to     be
made.    But what could be done?
Alan had for some time been lying
with his eyes closed; he now raised
his head and beckoned to his friend

"I wish you would bring a chair
here, and place yourself so that we
can speak without interruption," he
said. "Those ladies will not keep
away. They ask me e'.'ery few minutes how I feel. If I cough, they
raise their eyebrows and look at
each other and shake thoir heads. I
am tired of telling them how long I
s'ept last night, and how much
breakfast I ate this  morning."
"They mean well, Alan."
"Yes, I daresay. Walt until you
have been worried as long as I have,
and you will wish that people meant
ill, for a change."
"Have you slept at all this afternoon?"
"No. How could I, with the tea
always there whenever I look up? I
wish you could shift me somehow, so
that I shall not be forced to see It."
John easily changed the invalid's
position, but the movement made
Alan cough.
"Everything is against ine!" he exclaimed fretfully, "I wanted to talk
to you, and now I shall have to lie
"Suppose I talk to you, instead."
"Ah, do! Say something, anything that will keep me from listening to thi-se never-ending sounds."
"What sounds?"
"That hideous grinding of the screw
and churning of the water — no
rest, no rest!"
John looked at him in astonishment, and with some alarm; he himself was not overburdened with

"Alwa>s until I went to Melbourne. I used to go up to Glasgow

"A sister," said Alan, "I would
like te have a sister. I havo a half-
brother, a rascal — curse him!"
"Now, Alan, be quiet; don't excite
yourself so absurdly. What is the
use of saying things you don't mean,
and will be sorry to think of presently?"
Alan sighed, and the color that

pause he roused himself.

"You expect to meet a friend,

"Yes. if he is there; but 1 am not

Alan told his tale, pausing often tss

to proceed,
'-'My father,"  he said,   "was twice
married; my mother, his serond wife,
diesl of consumption when I was a
child.    I have a step-brother, Richard,      my    senior  by  twenty years.
When  my  father  died,  he  left   some
house  property   In  Glasgow  between
us  two.     Richard  managed  it,     and
paid  mo  my      share of  the proceeds
every year.     He was a  solicitor    in
partnership with my father.    I   had
found  employment   in  another   legal
firm:   I  disl  not      rare  for  the  work,
but   I   had   to   do  something   and   no
other opening presented  Itself,    Mr,
Anderson,  my Junior employer, took
a   very  kitisl   interest   iu   me.   shewing
me   ninny      favors   both   in   business
hours and out of them.    Tart of fie
work I was entrusted with was the
collection of rents, some ln the country,   some   in   town.     Suddenly     my
health     gnve     xvay.     I  knew I had
taken a bad chill, but I was careless
about  myself  until  one day T had   a
violent attack  of hemorrhage   Then
l wns forced to see a doctor, and In-
told   nie  that,   unless   T   left   Scotland
nt  once I  would  he  dead  hefore the
winter  was      over.     My   illness  had
made mc very depressed and listless:
I had no wish  to leave Glasgow, because  I   had      no     wish   to  live.     I
thought 1  hud  rather die quietly   at
home, and thut I could exist on the
money Kichari]  paid me yearly, until
death came.     Dut,  when  I explained
my intentions to him, Richard startled  me with  the  information that    I
wns already considerably in debt.  It
appeared that our property had    depreciated in vulue, and had for some
time yielded      less  than sufficed     to
keep it in repair.    Knowing ine to be
delicate,       Richard   saisl   he   had   not
liked  to deprive me of the sum I had
been accustomed to receive from him:
so he had paid  it to me out of his
own  purse.     I   was      distressed     at
this, for I bated him, and could not
bear to be under obligations to him.
Then  I  received  a  kind  communication  from  my  employers:    they   had
been asksd to find some one to fill a
place  in  a   solicitor's   ofliee   in  Cape
Town,  und    they    offered   to  recommend me.    Mr. Anderson urged me to
take this chance:   Richard  ulso  urged
me to go, saying that if 1 would relinquish all claim  to our Joint pro-
petty he would  assist  me by  gi\ ing
ma  £-00,      and   would   consider   uiy
past  obligations  cancelled,     I   closed
with   both   offers,   and   went;   taking
passage in a sailing ship in order to
benefit  as  much  as  possible by    the
sea air.
"When I reached the Cape two
months later, I made some discoveries about myself. letters were waiting me, and from them I learned
lhat I was accused of theft. It alt-
pea red that I had received £50 from
a farmer in payment for his rent,
that I had given him a receipt for
it, but had fulled to convey the
money to my employers. I was assured that in consideration of my ill
lienlth, of thc irreproachableness of
my former conduct, and of the fact
that my brother had generously mnile
good the detclenoy, no proceedings
would be taken against me: but the
recommendation given me was cancelled, nnd the circumstances had
been communicated to the gentlemen
to whoso ofliee I was going. Y'ou
thought I was quite respectable,
slidn't you, John; whnt do you
Ihink of mo now?"
"Of course there was some mistake, you were not to blame. What
proof had they?"

"If your appetite craves any particular thing, why don't you tell mc und

"Well, I want some head cheese. It's
Just possible that you may have heard
of such a dish some time In your life."
"Yes. I have. Our mothers used to

tell n story of Dumas pere.
"Ah," said be, "he was a gay soul,

WHEAT—The wheat markets have
Been quiet and firm   in    tone during
the past week and thero is little   in i
the routine of the trade calling  for !
special   mention,   In   tho  speculative
markets the outstanding feature   has
been the position   of the September I
option in C'hicugo.   There is evident- i
ly u large short interest in that op- '
tion which is without the means   of
delivering  tho wheat  to   the buyers,
und the consequence is that the prico
of contract wheat for September delivery in Chicago hus advanced from
T_c u  week ugo  to 86c on    Friday,
an advance of Mc per bushel, and it
is lie over the  New  York price for
•sumo  delivery.   Other  months  in  ull
markets    show scarcely any change
from  the  price  tliey   stood   at     one
week ugo
Manitoba wheat has  for the most
part been dull during the week. Onco
Or    twice    there    huve     been    slight
spurts of activity when ono or other
of tho exporters cunie into the market   with  orders    for    u   lurge  round
lot,   but  wheat  boing  plentiful     und
sellers ready to lot go freely whenever a fair opportunity presented itself,  these orders  being tow and far
between, were filled instantly.     Export-era seem to find it difficult to do
business  nt   the    present  prices,   and
the demand    is   Irregular und never
what  can  be called    strong.      Prices
huve  not  varied     much  during     the
wock.    On  llonduy  there  was   some
idvance influenced by the advance In

"My friend, Mr Thomas Hand, has
been a great sufferer from rheumatism in the back and joints for the
last four years, during which time he
skas applied many dills-rent methods
of treatment, but obtained no relief
whatever, and for tho last two years
has been unable to walk without a
stick, and sometimes two sticks, and
was in great pain constantly. I induced him to procure a bottle of St.
Jacobs OU, which he applied with
the most astonishing and marvellous
effects, liefore he had finished using
the contents of the first bottle ho
could walk readily without the aid
of a stick, and after a few applications from the second bottle he was
frsje from pain, and has been ever
since; and although fifty years of age
and a farmer, he can walk and work
without experiencing any pain or difficulty whatever."

Stuff from the pens of those British
journalists is appearing in quantities
in the English papers and a queer old
mess much of it is. Oue Johnny puts
Owen Sound at the head of Georgian
Bay and Toronto down on the St.
Lawrence. The Britishers are also
assured that the big lakes are navigated in the winter time, though the
voyages are generally rough. Now,
wouldn't that frost you ? Who but
a Britisher could be so delightfully
dense, you know, of his own Empir
after having visited it.
Recent conferences of trade unionists in New Zealand have re-alHrmed
their commendation of compulsory
arbitration. The capitalistic press
would have it that the unionists had
soured ou the law. Were it in effect
in the States there would not now be
such a gigantic and terrible struggle
as prevails in the anthracite coal regions. One of the worst features of
all industrial disputes is the suffering
and loss directly and indirectly entailed upon innocent parties. Under
compulsory arbitration conditions
similar to those at present obtaining
in Pennsylvania could not prevail.
The Ottawa government claims a
surplus for the fiscal year ending the
30th of June last of 57,000,000. It is
admitted, however, that 53,800,000 was
added to the public debt during the
same period, thereby increasing the
national burden to 1271,000,000, alxnil
$30,000,000 more than when the Tories
went out of office. Funny kind of a
surplus that, but it is a way the politicians have. For the first thro.* months
of tho current fiscal year the government states there was a large increase
in revenue and a heiivy decrease in
expenditure, giving a surplus of .?.r>,-
500,000. Wonder what thoy are going
to do with it.
Edmund Kirby and Bernard Mc-
donald, tin* Kossland mine managers
with a continual grievance, unfolded
a terrible  tale  of  win. at   the recent
session of the Canadian Mining Insti
tute at Nelson,claiming that had laws
and heavy taxation were driving the
mining industry ofthe province to the
demuition Ixnv-wows. Their slat -
mints have since been ventilated in
the press and shown to be utterly
jalsj. One assertion they made was
that powder cost six cents a pound

Those countries happen to have been
John Houston's old stamping ground.
bo he quietly camped on tin-trail of
the Kossland pessimists and made
some investigations. In SntiirduyV
Tribnne John gives evidence that
powder costs not a cent more here
than in the Yankee camps, aud clia -
acterizes the statements of Messrs.
Kirby aud McDonald as unreliable am I
devoid of truth. For the past four
years there has been more or lo.is of a
howl raised by soreheads from Rossland. against tlie laws of British Columbia. Facts pr no tuat Uie mining
industry ii by no means dead, bul
rather is expanding in a marvellous
manner from yoar to year. Our laws
are as good as thoso of any other
cointry, and if Kirby an'l McDonald
don't like o.tr stylo for heaven's sal-slot them get out and give us a rest
