Body of John llilcliey Was
Recovered After Two
Days' Search.
Alter searching unceasingly since the
12th inst., when the unfortunate foreman of tbe American Boy mine was
swept away by a snowslide, his body
was recovered on Sunday morning completely buried in the snow. The crews
of the Last Chance and the American
Boy mines engaged in tbe prolonged
search, re uming each morning at daybreak, they being assisted by the
efforts of the deceased's sagacious collie
dog. '' Bobs," which ultimately located
the spot, many feet below which his
dead master's body was found buried in
the wake of the avalanche.
It was found that the body from the
shoulders down was apparently uninjured, but au ugly gash on the head
was groundwork for the supposition
that the deceased was instantly killed
by the flotsam when first struck. As
the snow is rapidly disappearing, this
riew is strengthened, as a trail of blood
can be seen at tha point where be was
overcome, and traversing the course of
the slide.
After recovering the body, manager
Pratt and his men conveyed it to town,
where it was placed in the K. & S.
freight shed. Mr. VV. E. Zwicky, manager of the American Boy, who was at
Victoria wheu the news of the accident
reached him, arrived at Sandon on Sunday morning and took charge of the
remains, afterwards taking them to
Kaslo. The deceased's wife and three
children, who are residing at Edmor ton,
having expressed their desire that Ihe
body should be shipped to them, it
was accordingly consigned in charge of
H. Tyo, who also took along the collie
dog so highly prized by Hilchey.
It transpires that the accident happened just as we briefly described in
our last issue. The unfortunate man
was attending to hia duties as mine
foreman, aud wss walkii g on the trail
between 4 and 5 levels when the snow-
slide swept down tho mountain. His

A Pleasing Incident.
When Rev. Fr. D Jeannotte stopped
off the Nelson train on Monday, tha 8th
instant, he was Cordially greeted by a
few citizens, who mysteriously invited
him into tbe dining room of the Hotel
Madden, where he was confronted by
Mrs. Anthony Madden, who afier making a pretty little speech which befitted
the occasion, placed in bis hands a $80
timepiece and (20 cash, which she said
was an Eatter | resent from a few
friends in the city. The present is al]
the more pleasing from the fact that
Mrs. Madden, who had planned and
executed the surprise, ia not of the rev.
pere's denomination.
Deal on Tha Evelyn.
A mining deal was made a few days
ago in which Ham. Watson, acting on
behalf of the Buffalo Mitiirg Co., purchased the Evelyn claim fiom Messrs.
J. W. Kyte and W. Horton. Mr. Kyte
has also disposed of his half interest in
the Wilson Hotel to George Stalil.

Vestry Meeting;.
At the Annual Vestry Meeting held
at St. Paul's Anglican Church on Monday last (Missioner Baynes chairman),
H. 11. Jorand, barrister, was elected
lay delegate to attend the coming Church
Synod. He was also electid minister's
warden, and Mr. Wilson Ham, parish
warden. The report of the past year's
work was most satisfactory.
Dave McKechnie left a few days ago
with his family fur Edmonton.
Will Hudson, who has been away
from the Slocan for a number of years,
has returned. He was at oue time foreman at the Arlington mine.

A sad drowning fatality occurred at
Nakusp shout 1 a.m. this morning. A
man named Watte, who was cook for a
Government survey party werking in
the vicinity, left town in a imall I'eter-
boro cam e shortly after midnight to go
to his camp, and Tt is thought that in the
darkness the canoe struck one of the
piles near the wharf and capsized.
Several railway men heard cries, which
continued,for an hour, but they were
at Hist attributed to " loons," or other
water fowls. A search' party arrived
too late. 11 ii body was recovered later
nnd shipped to Nelson, where the deceased's wife and one child reside.
Watte was for some time a freight

Don't Read This.
We wish to draw the attention of our
readers to the section of the new Land
Act which refers to advertising. There
appears to be a misconception on the
part of some of the gentlemen who are
staking timber and land as to which is
the proper newspaper to send the necessary legal notices to, and we therefore
append the extract from the " Act to
Amend the Land Act."
The applicant   shall, within   the
time allowed by the Commissioner,
give notice that he has applied for
permission to obtain a license BY
and in a newspaper PUBLISHED
and circulating in the district where
such land lies, or, in the absence of
such local paper in the one nearest
Now we wish to remark that the Slocan
Mining Review  is THE ONLY  newspaper published in the Slocan District.
By no stretch of imagination or legal
quibbling can Nelson claim any connection with this district.    We are in the
Slocan, and being here we intend to get
what is coming to us even if we go broke
proving our case.   We  have  had legal
advice in the matter, and we are assured that in  the event of two parties
applying for tha same license, preference would  be given to the one who
strictly obeyed the Act in publishing
their notice in  the local paper.    We
wish also to add that we  shall await
our opportunity and protest the granting of licenses in a vigorous manner as
a  test case in  the near future.   We
therefore frankly advise ourfiiendsto
govern themselves by this preliminary
hint, as somebody will be jumped in a
few weeks, and it won't be the printer.
In tho meantime we ask our smaller
contemporaries   who  are   butting  up
against rimilar trouble to assist us with
their moral support.
Parsons and Persons.
We have had many and many a dig
at parsons in our time, therefore a rub
up the spine of their " sheep "the wrong
way willT)e"appreclated by our " friends
of the cloth." In ancient days there
were Scribes, Pharisees and Hypocrites,
and we have our reasons for thinking
that the latter species has not yet become extinct. We recently noticed in
au exchange that " surprise was expressed why ministers���good men and
true���should be constantly drifting
from one camp to another," to which
we would add were it not for the
sacred halo surrounding the subject:
Surprise be d d."
Surely people with the frailest perceptive powers can recognize " the
cause " when they consider the inadequate contributions towards the support
of their ministers. Did you ever notice
when a long-suffering pastor is compelled to make a change in preference
to running the risk of becoming bank,
rupt or being cleaned out by the sheriff,
that his concerned (?) " flock " piously
chortle, " Pastor Thingamybob has had
a more_ important " call." What ���
shame he should leave us," etc., etc.
The hypocrisy of the whole chewing
match which follows palls on us.
When " too late " the congregation ia
aroused to a sense of their neglect and
obligations, and at once attempt to calm
their conscience by adding their " mite"
towards a gift of a soup dish to Mrs.
Parson and silver-mounted pants suspenders to " his reverence," add to
which a layer cake and a Social���must
have a social, you know ��� when
laudatory speeches are made and ful-
jome flattery coughed up.
But cannot the departing apostle see
through the shallowness of such sentiment? He would be a pretty undis-
rerning chump if he didn't. 'Only a
short time since we remarked to a
neighbour that there was no more favored camp than our own in regard to
the supply of priest and ministers laboring in our midst tor the great and
good cause,���Rev. Fr. Jeannotte (Catholic;, Church Missioner Baynes (Anglican), Pastor Brown (Presbyterian),
and Pastor Rutherford (Methodist).
One has recently departed to another
sphere of usefulness (Mr. Brown), who
modestly explained that his motive for
leaving was to seek further study at
college, but those who can "read between the lines" cannot do otherwise
than conclude there were not sufficient
pecuniary advantages offered to induce
him to remain and comfortably exist.
We venture to assert that if this miserable Bupineness continues the district
will soon be deprived of present privileges, for " Man cannot live by Bread
alone," and a wife naturally kicks
against such' a bill of fare and also ao
scanty an outlook for the .future.
Experientia docet .'
We take a practical view of the situation and eons der it amounts to a
scandal that men of education who
have obeyed the Divine command, " Uo
ye into all the world and preach the
Gospel," and sacificed everything at
their Blessed Master's bidding, should
occupy a position financially inferior
to an ordinary laboier who can demand
hiB $3.00 or $8.50 a day.
" Our boys " at the mines when milk
ing good money and enjoying liberal
feed should halt a minute now and
again and' consider how tbe ministers
are faring; for doubtless there are
many who would prefer to suffer rather
than complain, and there is ofttimes
nothing but a well-punched meal ticket
between life and the narrow guage
starvation route.
Don't Flatter Yourself.
The man who owes the editor money
cannot lay the flattering unction to his
soul that he is the only toad in the
puddle. There are others. Strange
that the printer man is the last one to
be paid; stranger still that lie is the
first one to be dunned. 'Tis a strange
world altogether, all right all right.
A New Publication.
The latest journalistic venture which
has not yet reached that stage when
such important local happenings as
" Sam Jones' cows came home by themselves Monday," or " Tom Fatface
whitewashed his front fence Tuesday,"
is the Bulkier Pioneer. It is printed
in Vancouver, is of the boosting variety,
and is edited by a lady who we believe
was never in the valley, but when she
gets there, we suppose, can be depended
upon to climb the hills for authentic
news of the mines and to rustle around
the saloons for subs, etc. At present
the lady is in a snug office at Vancouver
writing up ths country in The Bulkley
Pioneer at the dictation of a financier,
who, we should not like to hint, had
anything to Bell or an axe to grind. But
one should never think of doubting the
word of a lady. We let it go as it
Where Were the Police?
A strange young fellow with lungs
like a bell of brass visited town for the
first time on Sunday morning. Notwithstanding it being the Sabbath and
the New Act being in force, he screamed

might have been a Doukhabour, but he
isn't; he's our new fighting editor, and

The coming summer promises to be
the most lively one in business circles
experienced for several years. A gradual change for the better has been noted
for some time, and those who have had
enough confidence to stand pat are

At Hymen's Altar.
Mr. Judson Byrnes and Mies B. C
Eastman were united in the estate A
matrimony on Friday the 12th inst., at
New Denver, B.C. The weddiog was
quietly solemnized, otherwise a large
number would have attended a public
ceremony to testify their sincere regard
for the bride and bridegroom, the former having for some time past
creditably conducted the New Denver
Primary School and won the affection
not only of the children under her
charge but also their parents. Rev. F.
J. Rutherford spoke the words which
united the happy couple. The kindest
wishes are generally expressed lor the
future health, happiness and prosperity
of the bride and bridegroom. " May
they live as long as they want and
never want as long as they live."
At Rest.
The funeral of the late Fred. G. Erb,
C.P.R. agent, Silverton, took place last
Friday at the New Denver Cemetery.
There were a large number of friends of
the deceased from Silverton and New
Denver at tho graveside. Missioner
Baynes of St. Stephen's church officiated. Friends of the widow and child
are raising a fund on their behalf,
Over $200 has already beeu collected.

A Silverton Mine Worked

��. ....
Galena where present Th tne vein is
invariably associated withcalcite, which
occurs in very large lenses, sometimes
reaching a thickness of 30 feet. Some
galena occurs at the hanging wall and
in other places sine blende. These
minerals follow the bedding planes and
in part replace the calcite when they
occur in quantity. It would thus appear that the pay ores are almost exclusively confined to the calcite lenses
in the vein. Between the calcite lenses the vein consists of crushed slate
showing considerable movement and
having calcite seams, veinlets and irregular stringers throughout the mass.
On No. 2 tunnel for the first 200 feet
the vein is probably not over $ feet wide
It is almost entirely crushed alate and
gouge; then calcite comes in and a
very large stope occurs, in the top portions of which 700 tons of argentiferous
galena was taken out in the early days.
The vein here is very flat, the dip averaging about 10 degrees. The average
dip of the whole vein I should estimate
at about 15 degrees, with an average
thickness of 6 feet from No. 3 tunnel up.
Tbe face of No. 2 tunnel could not be
examined on account of foul air, but I
am informed by Mr. Hunter that there
is a good stope of zinc ore about 800
feet from the portal. Going up through
a raise to No. 1 tunnel there are several stopes, some of which showed considerable sine blende associated with a
sprinkling of galena. Several of the
pillars left in these stopes would pay
to work and aro now being operated in
part by the lessee of the property. I
took sample No. 49, here, this being
one spot of zinc ore in time cuts, two
on one side and one on the other side of
across-cut going through - ji'.llar toward the hanging wall. It assayed:
silver 10.6 oz*., lead 7 5 p.c, zinc 38 p.c.
but owing to the irregularity of pillars
and the prevalence of stopes not shown
on the map, it is impossible to make
any accurate estimate of tho amount
of ore available without constructing a
���tope map. Parsing up through another raise to a tunnel abovo No. 1, the
vein was opened in seveisi places for a
width of about 8 feet, mostly calcite
I with a partirg of galena near the hanging. A little blende could be seen in
many places, also close to the hanging
It was distinctly noted that as the
levels advanced into Ihe mountain the
vein became smaller, the enclosing rock
and vein filling much harder, and the
calcite more silicious than ln tbe shallower workings.
The main galena stope was carried
down to tlie level of No. 3 tunnel, but
the shoot split a short distance below
No. 2. There is, however, a little galena showing in the direct course of the
shoot, and considerable calcite. Some
work was done here during the latter
part of 1905, and one stope, at least,
can be profitably operated.
Figure 2 shows a calcite deposit with
a little zinc blende in a roll in the vein.
These rolls are very common, and
where they occur in the shallower level
the vein is usually of great width and
calcite the predominating mineral.
The pay ores occur almost exclusively
in the calcite, filling in these rolls or
lenses, 700 tons of lead ore being found
in a calcite lens on No. 1 level as previously noted.
No. 4 tunnel is not over 100 feet long
and is unimportant.
No. 5 tunnel is 250 feet long. The
vein averages about 4 feet in width
mostly calcite, which, however, is
mixed with quartz and toward the face
is extremely silicious. There are no
stopes on this level and it is quite  ep-
fiarent the vein is narrowing up and
���scorning tighter. Near the mouth of
the tunnel a raise connects witli No. 0
tunnel. About midway in this raise
a stope has been opened out in a vein
about 3 foet wide, showing zinc blende
with a slight sprinkling of galena, for a
thickness of six inches. At the bottom
of this raise on No. 6 tunnel, some
little stopirg was alse done without
showing up anything of value. The
vein m-ar the end of No. 6 tunnel,
about 600 feet from its portul, and in
direct, line with the main ore shoot in
Nos. 1 and 2 tnnnels, is pinched down
to 2 feel, and in the face consists almost
entirely of quartz with a tight gouge.
The cross-cut into the vein and a raise
extending up through the vein near its
face have not shown up anything of
value. At this point the enclosing rock
is a dark blocky slate, very hard and
silicious, comparing unfavourably with
the soft carbonaceous argillites enclosing the vein in the productive parts of
the shallower levels.
No. 7 tunnel must bave been a great
disappointment as it was connected
with the head Iioubc of the main aerial
tram to the mill by a short mine tram-
Nelson's Magic Embrocation is just
the liniment for rheumatic joints.
Pat Gallagher has sold all his timber
and is now a bloated millionaire. He
is going to the Emerald Isle to " Buy
Killaruey's Lakes and Fells."
The best news of the week i-.' the big
etrlke of ore at depth at the fc-mbler,
way, and I am informed the management had expected to stope all the vein
above this level and send tt throug'
the mill. The mountain near tbe
mouth of No. 8 tunnel stands out in a
deep ridge, at the northern flank of
which the tunnel entered. Here the
vein Is about 4 feet wide and contained
on the hanging wall (judging from tbe
pillars left) from 1 inch to 2 inches of
high grade. The first raise goes through
to surface, and the ground bas been
about two-thirds stoped out. Lessees
are now (Sept. 30, 1905) gophering the
remainder in search of high grade silver-lead ore. About 300 feet from its
portal a branch extending south from
the main tunnel came through to surface, the vein flattening up at this place.
Some little stoping bas recently been
done, near this second portal to No. 7
tunnel, on the southern flank of the
ridge previously referred to.
This vein between this south portal
of No. 7 and the first raise has been
stoped for a height of probably 60 feet.
Proceeding along tbe tunnel, easterly
from the south portal, some lead ore of
high grade occurs in places, and the
lessees are now opening it up. This
lead ore can also be traced to the right
angle turn in the drift, also a little zinc
ore, but both in small quantities. The
enclosing rock for this distance is rather
sottish black carbonaceous elate with
the vein matter in places oxidised.
After the turn was made, the drift continued in a northerly direction, and it
is difficult to determine if the vein is
present in the drift. At the face, however, a raise was put up 50 feet, showing a vein of calcite with slight mineralization coming in at that height. The
face of the drift shows a 2 inch gouge
and a few inches of mixed quartz and
It will thus be seen that at every level of the mine the vein pinches up or
becomes silicious as it is f jllowed toward the heart of the mountain. Near
the surface or say from No. 3 tunnel up,
the vein is one of the finest 1 have ever
seen in the Slocan. It certainly contains the greatest thickness and the
purest deposits of calcite that I have
previously observed in any vein. The
deposits of ore in the shallow levels,
although very irregular,appear to have
been on the whole of good paying character; hence, the pinshing up of this
vein as it is followed in depth or even
into the mountain, must, (in part at
least,) be due to the fact of its being,
to some extent, a bedded vein, possibly
limestone recrystallized. It contains
good mineralization only at the point of
greatest movement. There is abundant evidence of considerable movement
along the plane of the vein, both in dip
and strike, the former perhaps more
easily explained as the descent of the
hanging wall side. Numerous veinlets
of calcite extend up into the shattered
hanging wall but this movement can
scarcely be distinguished in the deeper
levels, which is not perhaps remarkable
in a slate country, where the yielding
and crushing walls would, at a shallow
depth, absorb all movement.
Active prospecting in the shallow
levels of the Wakefield should open up
a fair tonnage of lead-zinc ore, as well
as an occasional bunch of high gradeore.

Various explanations are given to
explain why adjoining ore chutes frequently vary greatly in silver values.
That furnished by the principles of
secondary enrichment iB the most accepted.
Under this idea the ore is supposed
to have been otigmally the same in silver values. Those chutes which come
right up to surface are gradually washed
away by rain and snow, i.e., denuded,
but before this takes place the niineial
oxidizes. The lead and silver are converted Into sulphates an 1 carbonates.
The silver dissolves in the water, is
ranied down through the cracks and
redepositod on tho unaffected galena by
a well known chemical pieces*. As
more and more ore of Iho surface pait
of the chute has heen removed, the under]) ing galena will bo correspondingly
enriched in silver. This oxidation process, a*i generally understood, is an extremely Blow one. ln a chute exposed
to the surface there is then an upper
carbonate zone from which silver is
grailanlly being leached out, a mid
zone where the silver is being redepos*
ited and the mineral enriched, nnd a
lower zone of uualfected ore. An adjoining ore chute which does not reach
the surface is the same na this lower
unaffected zono. Tiiese principles
equally explain why the silver values
fall off in depth in certain chutes.

with any desire to injure him or with
the slightest sense of malice. To her 11
had been a merry jest, a pleasant comedy. Underneath all he saw the goodness of her motive in taking bim from
the old life and puttiug him iuto his
present position of trust. He had
helped her, and she was ready to help
him to the limit of her power. Hi?
position ln Edelweiss was clearly
enough defined. The more he thought
of It the more justifiable it seemed aa
viewed from her point of observation.
How long she hoped to keep him ln the
dark he could uot tell. Tbe outcome
would be entertaining. Her efforts to
deceive, If she kept tbem up, would be
nmuslng. Altogether be was ready:
with the leisure and joy of youth, to
await developments and to enjoy tbe
comedy from a point of view which
she could not at once suspect.
Ills subtle effort to draw Haddan
Into a discussion of the princess and
her household resulted unsatisfactorily.
The young guard was annoyingly unresponsive. He had his secret Instructions and could not be inveigled into
betraying himself. Baldos went to
sleep that night with his mind confused by doubts. His talk with Haddan had left him quite undecided as
to the value of old Franz's warning.
Either Franz was mistaken or Haddan
was a most skillful dissembler. It
struck him as utterly beyond the pale
of reason that the entire castle guard
should bave been enlisted in tbe scheme
to deceive him. When sleep came he
was contenting himself with the
thought that morning doubtless would
give him clearer Insight to the situation.
Both he and Beverly Calhoun were
Ignorant of the true conditions that attached themselves to the new recruit.
Baron Dangloss alone knew that Haddan was a trusted agent of the secret
service, with Instructions to sbadow
the newcomer day and night. Tbat
tbere was a mystery surrounding the
character of Baldos, the goat hunter,
Dangloss did not question for an instant, and ln spite of the Instructions
received nt the outset he was using
all his skill to unravel It.
Baldos was not summoned to the castle till noon. His serene indifference to
the outcome of the visit was calculated to deceive the friendly but watchful
Haddan. Dressed   carefully   In   th��
close fitting uniform of the royal guard,
taller than most of his fellows, handsomer by far than any, he was the
most noticeable figure in and about the
barracks, Haddan coached him In the
way he was to approach the princess,
Baldos listening with exaggerated iu-
tentness and with deep regard for detail.
Beverly was ln the small audience
room off the main reception hall when
he was ushered Into her presence. The
servants and ladies ln waiting disappeared at a signal from her. She arose
to greet bim, and he knelt to kiss her
hand. For a moment her tongue was
bound. The keen eyes of the new
guard had looked into hers with a directness that seemed to penetrate her
brain. That this scene was to be one
of the most interesting in the little
comedy was proved by the fact that
two eager young women were hidden
behind a heavy curtain in a corner of
the room. The Princess Yetive and
the Countess Dagmar were there to enjoy Beverly's first hour of authority,
and she was aware of their presence.
"Have they told you that you are to
act as my especial guard and escort?"
she asked, with a queer flutter ln her
voice. Somehow this tall fellow with
the broad shoulders was not the same
as the ragged goat hunter she had
known at first.
"No, your highness," he said easily.
"I have come for instructions. It
pleases me to know tbat I am to havo
a place of honor and trust such as
"General Marlanx has told me tbat
a vacancy exists, and I have selected
you to fill It. The compensation will
be attended to by the proper persons,
ODd your duties will be explained to
you by one of the officers, This afternoon, 1 believe, you are to accompanj
me on my visit to the fortress, which I
am to Inspect"
"Very well, your highness," he respectfully suid. He was thinking of
Miss Calhoun, an American girl, although he called her "your highness."
"May I be permitted to ask for Instructions that can come only from
your highness?"
"Certainly," she replied. His manner was more deferential than she had
ever known It to be, but he threw a
bomb into her flue composure with his
next remark. He addressed her in the
Graustark language:
"Is it your desire that I shall continue to address you in English?"
Beverly's face turned a bit red, and
her eyes wavered. By a wonderful effort she retained her self control, stammering ever so faintly when she said
ln English:
"I wish you would speak English,"
anwittlngly giving answer to his question. "I shall Insist upon that Your
(English is too good to be spoiled."
then he made a bold test, his first
���twins failed. He spoke once more in
tuo native tongue, this time softly and
"As you wish, your highness, but I
think It is a most ridiculous practice,"
he said, and his heart lost none of its
courage. Beverly looked at him almost
pathetically. She knew that behind
the curtain two young women were enjoying her discomfiture. Something
told her that they were stifling their
mirth with dainty lace bordered hand-
"That will do, sir," she managed to
say firmly. "It's very nice of you, but

his lips, and his eyes were twinkling as
he bent his head quickly. Franz wa(-

Graustark language.

lisb. "You have honored me, and I
give my beaut as well as my arm to

Beverly, breathing easier, was properly impressed by this promise of fealty. She was looking with pride upon
the figure of her stalwart protege.
"I hope you have destroyed that horrid black patch," she sal3.
"It has gone to keep company vrttk
other devoted but deserted friends," he
said, a tinge of bitterness in his voice.
"The uniform Is vastly becoming,"
she went on, realizing helplessly that
she was providing Intense amusement
for the unseen auditors.
"It shames the rags In which you
found me."
"I shull never forget them, Baldos,"
she said, with a strange earnestness In
her voice.
"May I presume to Inquire after the
health of your good Aunt Fanny and,
although I did not see him, your Uncle
Sum?" be asked, with a face as straight
and sincere as that of a judge. Bev*.
erly swallowed suddenly and cheeked
a laugh with some difficulty.
"Aunt Fanny Is never 111. Some day
I shall tell you more of Uncle Sam. It
will interest you."
"Another question, if it please your
highness. Do you expect to return to
America soou?"
This was the unexpected, but she met
it with admirable composure.
"It depends upon tbe time when
Prince Dantan resume* the throne iu
Dawsbergen,'' she said.
"And that day may never come,"
said he, such mocking regret lu his
voice that she looked upon him with
newer interest.
"Why, I really believe you want to
go to America!" sbe cried.
The eyes of Baldos had been furtively drawn to the curtain more than once
during the last few minutes. An occasional movement of the long oriental
hangings attracted his attention. It
dawned upon him that the little play
was being overheard, whether by spies
or conspirators he knew not. Resentment sprang up In his breast and gave
birth to a daring that was as spectacular as It was confounding. With
long, noiseless strides he reached the
door before Beverly could interpose.
She half started from her chair, her
eyes wide with dismay, her lips parted,
but his hand was already clutching the
curtain.   He drew it aside relentlessly.
Two startled women stood exposed
to view, smiles dying ou their amazed
faces. Their hacks were against the
closed door, and two hands clutching
handkerchiefs dropped from a most
significant altitude. Oue of them flashed an Imperious glance at the bold discoverer, and he knew he was looking
upon the real princess of Graustark.
He did uot lose his composure. Without a tremor he turned to the American

EEVERLY gasped. The countess
stared blankly at the new
guard. Yetive flushed deeply,
bit her lip lu hopeless chagrin
and dropped her eyes. A pretty turn,
Indeed, tbe play bad taken! Not a word
was uttered for a full half minute; nor
did the guilty witnesses venture forth
from their retreat. Baldos stood tall
and impassive, holding the curtain
aside. At last the shadow of a smile
crept Into the face of the princess, but
her tones were full of deep humility
wheu she spoke.
"We crave permission to retire, your
highness," she said, and there was virtuous appeal lu her eyes. "I pray forgiveness for this indiscretion and implore you to be lenient with two miserable creatures who love you so well
that they forget their dignity."
"I am amazed and shocked," was all
that Beverly could say. "You may go,
but return to me within an hour. 1
will then hear what you hnve to say."
Slowly, even humbly, tbe ruler ol
Graustark and her cousin passed be

guard. He opened a door on the oppo

"Yes, your highness."
"You may go now. Colonel Quinnox
will explain everything," she said hurriedly. She was eager to be rid of him.
As he turned away she observed a
faint but peculiar smile at the corner
of his mouth.
"Come here, sir!" she exclaimed hotly. He paused, his face as somber as
an owl's. "What do you mean by
laughing like that?" she demanded. He
caught the fierce note in her voice, hut

in deep surprise. "You must be mistaken. I am sure that I could not have

A gentlewoman never by any chance
leaves her style of dressing open to the
wonder how she managed to afford
It, says Elizabeth Aststruther ln the
Complete Beauty Book. She leaves
that wonder to ��� class of women with
whom she has little Indeed ln commou.
And a gentlewoman Is never so silly
as to hope by her style of dressing to
belle her age any more than her Income. There are many women now
called "fashionable" who dress themselves at sixty as they would at twenty-five, but they are not elegant women, however much they may pay for

A Pioneer "Muck Raker."
In a double sense the late Dr. W.
(I. Russell, former war correspondent
af the London Timeu, was a pioneer.
He was the first to make a hit with
accounts of battles "written on tlie
Bpot," although with him, us it waa
with his imitators, the legend was
a fiction. No man can see a buttle and
write about it ut Ilie same time. Rns-
ir;-l took in tlie points in the field and
lh?n wrote his story in a carriage
while traveling to tne mail or telegraph statien. He lmu'a his mark in
(lie Crimean war, that struggle with
many surprises und horrors, too, and
blazed the way for the American correspondents in the civil war.
Russell exposed the blunder which
led to the tragedy at Balaklava by
which the Light lirigade was sacrificed
Id no purpose. His revelations with
respect to that memorable action led
to nn official investigation, ;>nd tho
tiewsparJer man was vindicated. After
Balaklava Russell's reputation stood
so high at home that he exposed tho
o-iffering of the soldiery in the tents
nnd hospitals at Sevastopol, due. to
sffioial mismanagement, and raised a
r.torm of indignation throughout England. The main trouble with the army
was tlie cumbrous red tape und official
slowness to grasp the truth and handle the situation without risking a

Warm  Feed For Hogs.
We have known many instances
where a good feed of warm slop once
a duy during the winter made tlie difference on a big bunch of hogs between a gain and a loss. It is not by
any means impossible to take a good
growthy bunch through the winter
making an average daily gain of one
and a half or two pounds if they are
ted warm slop once a day, while, on
the other hand, if they are given nothing but cold water and dry grr-in
there may be weeks at a time when
they will stand still, says a writer in
Iowa Homestead.
The plan of cooking must be adapted to conditions, though we have
found that it ia generally cheaper in
the end to buy a good cooker rather
than to temporize with a homemade
affair. Nothing is better than a good
meal of warm feed once a day for
brood sows, and for this purpose one
can use tlie smnll grains, such as
oats or barley. Of course if to this is
added when it is warm a little oiftneal
or tankage so much the better, because this contributes to the health
and thrift of the sows and to the proper development of _ the .little pigs.

Canadian  Longevity
It is commonly observed that Canadians are long-lived. There are in
statistics to prove that tbey are the
longcst-liveil of any race of people,
but instances of longevity are sl
common in this country that it ir
probably the case that no other nation can show a more telling record.
As an example, an exchange refers
to the obituary column of the current
number of the Dominion Presbyterian. There are thirteen deaths recorded, seven of tbem being women
and six men. Being Presbyterian
practically all of tbem are of Scottish
descent, which may or may not account for their longevity. Every one
of the thirteen was over seventy years
of age, five of them over eighty, and
live of thein over ninety, one being
ninety-nine. This of course is exceptional even in Canada, yet this is an
obituary record, taken at random,
and it would seem to establish this
country as u place where the evening
of our days is long.

Ths Only One Right
"Ian Maclaren," the Scottish novelist and preacher, otherwise Rev.
John Watson, was talMngto the
Presbyterian ministers in fniladel-
pliia the other day about "cranks."
Alinisters, he said, are besieged and
annoyed by "cranks" more than any
other class of men. No matter how
lard-working, eloquent or popular a
minister may be, he must expect to
.nive some cranks in his congregation
.vile expect him to not only believe
is they do, but also insist that he
conform his sermons to their points
jf view. "They are like the Scotch
.voniiin whose son joined the army,"
;nid Dr. Watson. "Motherlike, s'ic

Reproduced above, is a portrait of the late
Mr. C. H. Record, the founder and original
head of the Record Foundry & Machine
Co., of Moncton, N.B., and Montreal,
Previous to Mr. Record going* into the
manufacture of stoves, those used in
Canada were almost wholly of American
manufacture. The character of the work
turned out by the Record Foundry &
Machine Co., at once gave their stoves a
standing, and as a result a very large
business soon grew up, largely owing to
Mr. Record's untiring industry and perseverance against many obstacles.
Although Mr. Record retired from active
business as far back as 1870, the solid
basis on which he had established the industry, has resulted in its growth from a
sturdy pioneer into one of the largest stove
manufacturing plants on the northern half
of the American continent. With two
large plants, one in Moncton and one in
Montreal, the Record Foundry & Machine

The Spitting Stone
There is a stone in the high wall
that surrounds Girard College that
.ius for years been the object of a juvenile tradition, says the Philadelphia Record. It is situated on the

way between 10th and 20th streets
ind five feet from the pavement. The
stone is one of the regular stones ol
the wall, but it has the peculiarity
if being perfectly round in shape
and a peculiar reddish brown in
color. There is not a boy who lives
n that section who does not regard

According to the boyish superstition,
-���very lad who passes it should spit
on it and make a wish, which will
come true, nnd should he ignore tlu

Canada Needs Fifty Thousand Men to
Construct Her   Railways.
So great is the railway construction
work to be carried on in Canada during the present year that those who
have the work in hand are in a desperate state of mind as to procuring
the necessary labor. The lowest estimate given by contractors is that
fifty thousand pick and shovel mer;
will be needed, if the undertakings
at present in view are to be gone on
with. Where are these men to be
had? How are tbey to be procured?
To  Bring John  Chinaman.
For months the idea has been afloat
that the railway companies will use
their combined influence at Ottawa to
secure permission for the bringing in
of Chinese coolies by the shipload to
engage in this work on the understanding that the men will be deported when the work is done. In the
British Columbia elections some of
the Conservative speakers declared
that the whole matter had been secretly arranged with the Ottawa Government to the satisfaction of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, at least; thnt
a contract had been entered into between that railway nnd a certain company whose agent was already in China booking thousands of men; that
those men would be landed from ships
at Prince Rupert and would then be
engaged for railway work, thus evading the Alien Labor law. But this
would not evade the necessity for each
coolie to pay down $500 as an admission fee to the country, and it is said
that the Government will be asked to
suspend the collection of this head-
Work Must Not Stand Still.
Pick and shovel men are needed
in great numbers. There is no getting
away from the fact that the ordinary
supply will not answer. So far as organized labor is concerned there is
no sense in disputing faots evident to
all. Something must be done to permit the country to mako progress during 1907. What can be done? If the
leaders of labor object to the bringing
in of the cheap labor, the inferior
blood and low morals of China, what
are they prepared to assent to? There
is work to be done and no workers
to do it. If the labor unions will recommend nothing and assent to nothing, something will be done whether
they like it or lump it. Tlieir wisest
course, then, would seem to he to
assent to the plan least objectionable
from their point of view, which surely would be the bringing in of a specified number of white men from Europe under contract to perform a specified work and then be deported���
the whole operation to be under the
direction of the Department of Labor
and under the eye of the fair-wage
officer of that department. Let us at
least have white men, an army of
whom could be secured in Great Britain alone,.   ..
A Good Sim wc* li.,n For Glrla Who Do
Office Work.
Instead of using typewriting paper
wltb a band of elastic for keeping the
sleeves protected when working lu an
office, how much better ft would be
to make use of the attractive handkerchiefs sold ln the art departments of
the large stores at 10 cents apiece.
Tbey are made ln a very few minutes
to fit the arm. One handkerchief
makes a pair of sleeves. ,U is best to
buy a handkerchief Intendeu for a boy,
as the ladles' size Is too small.
To make place the handkerchief upon
the table and cut off the two opposite
corners four Inches from the point.
Then take the remaining part of the
handkerchief and fold it ln two, one
point on top of the other, and cut
across the center. Fit the pieces to
the arm, tbe point being placed over
the elbow and tbe two edges pinned
to fit the arm at the Bide seam. When
this Is neatly sewed the sleeve protector Is complete, with the exception
of the cuff, which Is made from tho
corner already cut off and which Is
neatly Joined to tbe edge of the cuff
and turned back on tbe arm. Four of
these handkerchiefs would equip a
girl nicely for office work. Two should
last clean for a week, so that she
would always have two fresh ones for
the following week. These should be
chosen. If possible, to match tbe gown.

Perchance   some furtive   tears   our
eyes may fill.
There rises  some lone rock, all wet
with surge
And dashing billows glimmering in
the light
Of  a wan  moon whose   silent   rajs
From clouds that veil their lustre
cold and bright.
And there, 'mongst reeds upon a river's side,
A wild bird sits, and, brooding o'er
her nest,
Still guards  the priceless gems, her
joy and pride,
Now ripening 'neath her hope-enlivened breast.

A traveler Btands lone on some desert heath;

O'er the far hills a purple veil seems
Dim herald of the coming shades of
E'en now Diana's lamp aloft is hung.
Drinking full radiance from the font

Now we behold a marble Naiad placed
Beside a fountain on her sculptured
Her bending form with simplest beauty graced,
Her white robes gathered in a snowy
She from a polished vase pours forth
a stream
Of  sparkling  water  to  the   waves

A hundred fairer scenes these leavoi
But there are tongues that injure
while they praise;
I cannot speak the rapture that I feel
Whan on the work of such a mind
I gaze.
Then farewell, Bewick, genius' favored
Death's  sleep is  on  thee;  all   thy

From earth departed, life  and  labor
Eternal peace and rest are thine at
