Where Kev rnt I Stockholder* Object
to Hitrliig their Money Idle,
The editor of The Drill, who is at
present sojourning in the-caul, writes
under date of September 12, .that he
had that day in Orillia called upon
Messrs. Tudhope and Lavallee, president and secretary respectively ofthe
Ontario Slocau Lumber Co. The
pleasing information was elicited that
it is the bona tide intention of the
company to proceed with the completion of their milling plant here at
an early date. A few (lays ago the
company held their annual meeting
in Orillia. when it was definitely settled to proceed with the work, several stockholders abating they had
invested too much money in the concern to permit of it lying idle.
A resolution was passed (it^ toe
meeting authorizing Messrs. Tudhope, McPherson and Thos. Chew
to proceed to Slocan aud there to
thoroughly look into the. situation and
straighten out all existing tangles.
Mr. Lavallee stated plans and specifications had been prepared and details and estimates provided for the
building of the big sawmill at Sloean:
also the construction of B powerful
tug. Both he and Mr. Tudhope gave
the positive assurance that the plant
would be completed at an early date.
The reasons for delay had been swept

is devoted tothe history of the Minnie
Moore mine of that place, telling bow
it wa.s located in 1879, and what
pluck, perseverance and capital was
necessary to bring it to the point in
the early '80s whero Foreman R. J.
McPhee, now manager of tho Ottawa,
made the strike which produced in
six years afterward over ?7,000,000
worth of ore.
Within 30 feet of tbe strike the
management wanted to quit, but Foreman McPhee persuaded them against
their will to continue sinking to tbe
600-foot level in spite of unpaid creditors clamoring on all sides and the
fact that Carmichael, the backer, \, bo
was putting up his last dollar ou what
at the time seemed a hopeless case,
was helpless in bed with the fevi r.
A part of the tale, which is laughable
to one who knows how cobl-hoaded
Mr. McPhee i.s now, is given below:

The huckleberry crop, which is bruin's

This is a favorite feeding ground for
the bears in tlie fall, but they have
been forced to go elsewhere and
forage. They appear to be unusually
hungry and are raiding the uninhabited mountain shacks frequently.

Oeo. Stoll is showing a small quantity of placer gold which he panned
out at tha falls of Springer e • •!; near
town. The gold is clean aud coarse,
the largest being about the size of a
small pea. George intend: to try for
more in the same vicinity, and say-; he
can secure at least an ounce for exhibition if the panning d ies nol prove
to pay him wages. Although placer
gold has been found and exhibited
from Lemon creels and it- tributaries,
and, in fact, a placer boom was threatened on main Lemon creek in 1898, it
has not lieen tried for liefore on
Springer creek. There might be
reason in expecting placer gold In
paying quantities, as there are many
small veins on its slopes carrying good
fsroid values.

The Girl
From the East
By   Marjorie   A.   Barkley
VopyrtuM. ISO!,, hy T. C. McClure
There wus excitement nmong the
young officers ut Fort Wayne when
Hicks, the little corporal who wore his
cup ou the side of his head, spread the
report that the girl from the oust had
come uud had been escorted to Colonel
Klein's house.
liurlug thnt first day there was an
unusual amount of promenading In
Officers' row. Lieutenants, sergeants
and even corporals found time to walk,
la approved military style, past the
colonel's quarters, and there wns one
who showed signs neither of excitement nor Interest. It was Captain
Roberts. He told his friend, n first
lieutenant, that he wouldn't go around
the corner to see twenty girls. Whereat tbe lieutenant grunted and said
something about behavior iu the Philippines, • adding, with frank sarcasm:
"You're a peach, you are, to pose as a
woman hater after cutting uie out
with the little senorlta so clenn that
every fellow ln the regiment was afraid
to have you see bis girl. I know you
all right, old pal, and I'll bet with the
rest that you take your little stroll ln
the row on the heels of some big bended corporal. I passed the house myself," he owned boldly, "and I saw ber
too.   She's a regular beaut, Dick."
But even his best friend failed to
•waken the Interest of the captain. He
went so far as to get Into citizen's
clothes that same afternoon and leave
the fort for a walk ln the river road.
This, by the critical corporals, was considered stuck up.
When the captain reached a sandy
strip of beach a mile or more from the
fort he stretched out nt full length
and gazed at the wnter where freight
aud passenger steamers passed ou their
routes to the great lakes.
His thoughts, whether they were
upon commerce or navigation, were
profound Indeed, for he started when
he heard the rush of n woman's skirts
and saw from the corner of his eye
tbat a girl was approaching. He moved a little, but did not look in her direction uutll the girl stopped and snld
softly: "1 beg your pardon, but Isn't
this—it Isl Dick, I know it was you!"
Captain Roberts sprang to his feet
and looked Into the girl's flushed face
"It's Margaret, Dick," she said.
Roberts took the hand she offered.
"Peggy," he said wonderingly. "Peggy, you tnke my breath away. Where
did you come from?"
"I'm staying at Colonel Klein's, but
where did you come from?"
"You, nt tbe fort?" he asked incredulously. "That's whero I live. Sit
down here on tbls rock. Peggy, Peggy Adams, do you realize bow you
bave surprised mo? When did you
strike these parts?"
"This morning."
"No! Then you're the girl from the
cost? They'vo been talking about you
for weeks."
,   "How lovely of them—and yoil?"
"Wby, I'm up there too."
"Those clothes?" she said doubtfully.
"Are 'cits,'" he finished, smiling. "I
wear a uniform up there."
"Oh! And what are you—what
"Captain." he said briefly. "Peggy.
how you have grown up."
"Have I?" Bhe laughed.    "And so
hnve 3"ou. about two feet higher, aud
you went to West Point after all?"
"Yes, father insisted."
"Do you like the nrmy?"
"Oh, yes, when we see active service!"
"Then yon have seen active service.
In the Spnnlrii-Amerlcan war? Oh,
tell me about It!"
Roberts laughed. "I will some time."
he suld. "I will tell you anything you
nsk, but let's talk about you now.
Where have you boen nil these years?"
"School nnd college und around at
"Tbat means traveling, I suppose, yet
you never visited West Point?"
"Never. I didn't know Hint you wero
there, thnt you had gone back. You
know you said"—
"Yes, I said several things about that
time.    Vou haven't forgotten then?"
"Forgotten? Oh. Dlek, I couldn't
forget!   Never!   Wasn't It dreadful?"
"It was rather n bad mess, but weat least I—showed remarkably ijood
taste, though you weren't us beautiful
then as you nre now."
"I can't aiiub you for tbnt," tbe girl
said, with carefully lowered lashes.
"It sounds genuine. Vou nlways were
thoroughly genuine, Dick,"
"Yes. I was In earnest then," he
said, smiling. "You wero my first
sweetheart." He laughed aloud. "My,
how you cried when the minister re
fused lo marry us! I flattered myself
that you were disappointed, but It really was your pride, you poor little girl."
He regarded tbe poor little girl's
blushing faee with lender affection.
"I think tlmt the old minister was
the sweetest ninn I ever met. He knew
(bat we were eloping. How gentle be
was and tactful. I have nlways
thought of him wltb thankfulness nkin
to love."
"I thought he was a regular old
donkey, but It appears thnt I tun tho
only one who wns lu real earnest," he
snld tentatively.
Peggy Inughcd. "Do you remember
my high beoled boots?" sbe asked, Ignoring his remark.
"Oh, don't I, though! You tripped,
and I hud tbe delirious Joy of catching
you In my arms. But do you remember
Iww I sored money?   I've roared over
tuy Vainness nv.-ro than onee. Yon
know I hud only $25 to my nnme. and
I sold that carriages were too slow and
tbat we woultl much better take a car.*'
"1 had forgotten that," Peggy said,
"but I remember bow fighting nmil you
were when papa rushed in. You stood
between him antl me and said, "t.'ir,
your daughter has consented to be-
cuSie iny wife!' Oh, Dick, wasn't it
funny V"
"Yes," he said slowly. "Sometimes
it seems funny to uie and sometimes It
seems strangely tragic. Tbat we were
such babies Is tbe only saving fact
Poor kids!" Ho sighed and turned his
eyes from Hie girl's fnee. "1 suppose
you're, engaged now?" he suid.
".No.", '
"How does thnt happen V*
She shook her bend. "And you?'
she Haiti.
"Engaged? No. indeed. 1 never saw
but one lovnble girl in my life."
"And sbe wouldn't marry you?"
"She wouldn't. There will never be
another.   I lost track of her."
"But you didn't forget her?" the girl
asked softly.
"I never forgot her for n minute.
But It's too lute to lind her now. She
doesn't care for mo utiywtiy."
"Oh, Dick; don't suy that. Any gir
ought to eare for ymi. .ftist the fact
that you stuy true to one woman
should be enough. Don't give up and
spoil It."
"Will you give uie a recommendation?" he nsked, smiling. "Say that
none of my relatives were banged or
something like tlmt'/"
"1 could say much better things. It
Is beautiful that you want to lind her.
I like lt, Dick. And I think tne girl
will like it."
Roberts looked deep Into her eyes,
but be saw uo self consciousness. He
forgot what he bnd rend many times,
that women are clever actresses.
"Your advice may be good," he said
after a few moments of silence. "But
what would you bavo snid yourself,
Peggy, if ; had hunted you up and bad
told you about caring for you? Tbe
girl Is very much like you. Wbat would
you have said'/"
"Oh, that's silly, Dick." sl:** said
quickly. "You know you wouldn't'*'
She looked past Koberts nnd frowned
uneasily. "It's going to rain," she murmured, "and I'm eold."
"Oh, 1 suppose so," Dick said gloomily. "She'd say lhat too. That's why
I didn't hunt her up."
"But it's going to rain. There, I felt

Dr. Jtfti'linlkoff Hai Fount! It an J Ia Looking ror an Antidote   l.osiln to
Itlpo Old Age,
Dr. Metchnikoff, the bacteriologist
of the Pasteur Instituto in Paris, has
discovered thc microbe of old age.
lie did not make this statement in
so many words, but that is whut his
theory comes to. Ho expounded it
at a scientific lecture on the subject
of "Senility." "What is old age?"
tlie lecturer usketl. lie dismissed the
theory thnt senile decrepitude power
in the cells of the orgunism, pointing out that, on the contrary, certain Cells, suh e.s those ofthe hair,
often di.v'ie.y greator activity in old
:l uu.
'live prof .'sor [Tocooded to prove
that se-nflfty is e microtnian infection.
It is v.ell-i.n mn that microbes aro
inr from being ull Inimical to tho
human  hody.   \,u could not, in fact,
lie   v.illtiiL   the   good   oilices   of   tl'.o
beneficial l.ncton'a, called "macro
|iiiul;i," i.hich spend their own existences llgfitingi the un friendly microbes and thus prolong our dajs.
But it now seems thnt the good microbe- turns Turk alter we have
remhed a certain ape, and the discovery of that fnct is the foundation
of Dr. MetchnikofTs theory. Tho
macro; hagi in question, after helping un to live, compass our downfall
und denth. Perhaps because they
themselves decay they spread a slow
in'ection in our system which produces senile decrepitude.
Tho favorite residence of the ma*
croj'hagl in human beings is the
agroul inter.! inf. Dirds, in whose systems thu hitter organ is reduced to
its smallest expression, live much
longer than mammals. A radical
remedy for tho mlcroblan malady of
old age would bo the removal of tho
grout intestine. Tailing that method, to which thero are obvious
drawbacks, in the present state of
science at all events, Dr. Metchnikoff
recommends treatment by certain
foods, such as curdled milk, which
will introduce into the system bacteria counteracting what ho calls
"our intestinal fiora."
On tho other hand, raw fruit and
vegetables multiply the flora iniques-
tion rapidly. However, tho only real
antidote to old ago will be an artificially manufactured serum which
will act directly on the microbes of
senility. Dr. Metchnikoff is engaged
on researches to discover such a serum. When be finds it ha leads us to
expect not eternal youth perhaps,
hut at least a ripe old age, and only
prolonged far beyond the present
span of man's existence, but freo t«
tho last of any senile decay.

Ingenious Soliomo to Save TrarsUrs From
To lessen the rolling of steamships
In a sea an interesting dovico has
been designed by Hcrr Otto Schlick,
a Herman naval architect, and consists'of installing o, rapidly rotating
Ily wheel in the hold of thc vessel.
'1 ln«    involves   making  use  of . tho
principle of thn gyroscope fatnilinr
in the toy sometimes known as tho
Archimedean top, whero a fly wheel
whose weight is concentrated near its
circumference is mounted in gimbals
so that it is free to rotate iu any
Hcrr Schlick proposes to mount m.
fly wheel carried on a vertical axis
In a frame which is suspended on a
horizontal axis tranverso to tho
length of the vessel, the whole mc-
cbunism lieing placed at the bottom
of the hold. To rotate the fly wheel
with thc necessury high speed electric motors or steam turbines would
be employed., There would be hydraulic brakes and band brakes to
restrain and regulate the, motion of
the fly wheel when necessary.
Tho effect of tho rapidly rotating
fly wheel is to develop forces thut
would oppose the oscillation of the
vessel, muking it slower and reducing its extent materially. An elaborate calculation was made of the
sizo antl weights of such a fly wheel,
uml Ilerr Schlick has ascertained |
tbat for a steamer of 0,000 metric
tons (5,(105 5 F.nglish tons) a fly
wheel four meters (15.12 feet) in
diumelrr. weighing ten metric ton.'i
(0.849 English tons) and moving
with u peripheral velocity of 300
meters ttl'iC, foot) per second would

In  Ihe Making of  llrnlnf
The native born American womnn
has been made tlie subject of discussion almost ad nauseam. Indeed, it
would be a matter for uo surprise if
she were to regard herself as a iieing
apart. Her energy, her brightness and
resourcefulitess have been lauded to
SUCh an extent that it might will be
believed that the women of otlier countries cannot lie considered in tlie saint*
category with her. Tills, too, is true
ns far as it goes, and in many qualities tlie American woman stands supreme. Unfortunately, however, she
fails in the must Important one of all,
(hat of maternity, and fails in consequence of ber cultivation to excess of
those attributes which are generally
thought not to be within a woman's
province. Hor physical powers suffer
in proportion as her mental powers increase, and as a propagator of the race
she cannot compete with women of
stronger bodies, but of less highly
trained brains.
Dr. Kmll Itc-ich, n German who lived
for five years in this country, bns recently written on tliis matter In a
British periodical. He draws attention
to the fact tlmt one outcome of the
overmentallsntlon of tlie American
woman and the liypergnlviinizntion of
her energy is tlie breakdown of American maternity, which he regards as
one of tbe most serious phenomena

Austria's Kaiser, Hanicarr's Kla*.
Tho Austrian kaiser bas many an
odd custom to comply with lu his capacity as dual monarch of Austria-
Hungary. He ls emperor of the former, but king of tbe latter. Hungarian
papers, people and politicians never
breathe tbe word "kaiser'' ln referring
to rruncls Joseph, but only the Hungarian "kiraly" or king.
When the sovereign leaves Vienna to
visit Budapest, be must cease to be
Austrian and become Hungarian. His
uniform will be Hungarian, also his
speech, and the officials who accompany hlm will be Hungarians, but never Austrians.

Slocan, P. C
The news that the Ontario-Sk-can
Lumber Co. intend to erect their mill
hero without delay und that the
gentlemen connected with the coin
pnuynienn business on Iheir trip out
here this timo adds much to tbe outlook for the future prosperity of Slocnn. Outside of this the general
outlook is much brighter. The payrolls at the Ottawa aud Slooan Prince
have regularly been Increased of late.
Witb good forces at these mines and
tho Enterprise, together with the Kilo,
Club, Cripple Stick, Neepawa and
Edison shipping ore, things should
and will take a brighter turn, and that
at a not far distant time.
Notwithstanding the general tendency towards duller trade, which is
uow characterizing almost every
country, uo sueh reaction, says the
Liverpool, England, Courier, is ap
parent in Canada. The continued
volume of immigration settlers is
steadying and stiffening industries
and trade and commerce in the dominion are most satisfactory. One
point of interest is a falling off in the
flow of immigrants from the United
States and from Europe, which, however, is more than made up by the
increased arrivals from tbe British
Isles, and the prospects are tbat this
feature will be maintained. With the
spread of knowledge of the varied
and natural resources of Canada capital is flowing into the country. The
next few years also will see an enormous expenditure in railway enterprise, which must affect advanta-
peously every channel of trade and
industry and render any reaction in
the immediate future extremely unlikely. In connection with the foregoing, it is interesting to note that
building o|M>rations in all tbe cities of
Canada tbis year have exceeded those
of any previous twelve months, and
this activity does not run.on a speculative basis, but is simply the outcome
of legitimate needs created by tho expansion that is proceeding in every
direction. ^^^^^^^^^
Editor Drill:
We don't like to kick, and arc not
winners, but must say that tho present
disarranged mail and freight rate service of tbe Slocan is annoying, detrimental and intolerant to the body
politic. Why the transportation, mercantile and [inst office authorities
should go in cahoots and turn the
cold shoulder and the heel of oppression ou the Slocan, friend anil foe
alike, is lierond the "ken 6' man" and
outside tbe limits of common sense
and honesty and quite iit variance
with tbe pretensions and promises of
the powers that be to bold, advance
and enhance the tangible and latent
resources and possibilities of our common community and country, whieh
if given fair play will respond find in
ure to the profit, prosperity and hap*
pinen of all concerned. The present
condition smacks of the greed of
graft, and il quite inconsistent with
the old and steadfast British principle
of fair play and no favor and don'l hit
or kick a man when he's down.
