greeted the Rev. F. J. and Mrs. Rutherford in the spacious basement of the
Methodist church building on Tuesday
evening last. It was a representative
gathering of citizens, dames, and fair

In spite of the denial of Premier
Mellrido that elections will lie held
in December, the Victoria Times still
stands by its assertion. Isn't it strange
that some people know more about
other jieople's business than they know
themselves. The Times, World and
Daily News arc not in the know, nor
are they likely to lie. It was just one
of their wily methods of angling for information; but we are afraid they are
using sucker bait, which accounts for
the poor catch.

If that's the only answer to the

Good strikes are reported this week on
the Grey Copper, Alps and Alturus,
and Great Western. This hist property
was taken over about 15 days ago by
Louis Hinde, who secured a transfer of
the lease held by D. Sloano and II.
Lowe for a 11,800 cash payment. Men
were at once put to work, and after
driving a few feet they struck eighteen
inches of good shipping ore, which is
still holding out.
Thirty-nine inches of antimony was
struck on the Alps last week. Thero is
a tremendous amount of this now on

Denies Robbing a Mine.
We recently published a news item in

any implication :

Editor Slocan Mining Review :
Dear Sir,���The enclosed clipping from
your paper has been Bent to me by my
friends. I lived in New Denver, B.C.,
and was mining there for over twelve
years, removing to Los Angeles in January, 1905. Naturally, many people
might think this Item referred to tne.
Will you kindly state in your paper
ihat this happened in California during
the time I whs in Mexico, anil that I do
not know either this J. II. Moran or
his associate, Dr. Haney, nor anything
about them. Since coming here in
1905 I have done no mining in California. I enclose a statement signed hy
tho Under-sheriff of Los Angeles, and
s.'Viral well known business men in
Los Angeles, who are associated with
ii e in milling interests in Mexico.
Thanking you for your kindness, I am
Yours very truly,
J'.vmeh II. Mohan,
This ia to certify tlr.it James II. Moran,
now living at 156 Confidence Street,
Los Angeles, California, is not the J
H. Moran who was arrested for the
alleged lobbing a mine in Plumas
County, California, on or about
August 1st, 1906.
Furthermore, we wish to -tale that ai
the time of this occurience, said

The Ore Tariff Investigation which is
being held before the United Slates
Board of Appraisers in New York, is
being watched with keen interest. Tho
fight has been on for about two years,
growing out of a desire of the smelters
to obtain cheap Mexican mid British
Columbia ores, instead of the higher
priced Joplin ore for the manufacture of
spelter, and was made possible by the
seemingly contradictory readings of
which the present tariff laws are capable.
The clause which is under discussion
and a bone of contention at the present
time is Art. 514 of the Dingley Tariff
Law, which places calamine on the free
According to W. R. Ingalls, acknowledged to be the best zinc authority in
the United States, calamine is a term
unknown in the common vernacular of
the western mining region.
Naturally the smelter, desiring to
obtain importations of zinc ore, desire to
interpret tho term calamine in as broad
a sense as possible, and have endeavored
to include in it not only silicate to which
the term is most generally applied, but
also zinc carbonates.
Under this interpretation it would ho
possible to obtain free of duty, an abundant supply of ore for the smelters at a
much lower price from Mexico and
British Columbia than lhe Missouri-
Kansas zinc district. Just as naturally
the ore producer desires to place as
narrow a restriction upon the term
calamine as possible, and insists in
keeping the meaning set for it hy
scientists, before any commercial advantages were to be derived from any
particular application.

In arm, while Robert gazed at his old
school friend in silence resolved to
demand an explanation.
"So I am indebted to you for this
Interruption, too!" exclaimed Bert-
riind, his voice quivering with anger.
"Certainly," replied Robert, quietly.
"I want you to understand that I
have had enough of your surveillance."
"You shall nevertheless have to
Btibmit to It, unless you remain at
Trouvllle in the future."
"You would be only too delighted
to rid yourself of a dangerous rival,"
sneered Bertrand.
"You aro entirely mistaken, I have
no pretentions to Edmee Levasseur's
The captain burst Into a forced,
Ironical laugh.
"And I know that you are madly in
love. I know all the symptoms of that
malady!" he said, bitterly. "Well, no,
my dear fellow, I will not he complaisant enough to leave the field to
you. I will go to the chateau to-morrow, the next day, and every day, it
It suits me."
"I shall find the means to prevent
you," said Robert, beginning to lose
his self-command.
"Indeed, how so?"
"By requesting Mile. Levasseur to
refuse you admittance."
"You dare not do 'hat."
"1 will do It���"
Tho two men glared at each other,
their old antipathy of nature turned
to hatred; and ihis hatred In Ben-
rand became a sort of wild fury. He
rushed at his rival, with murder in
ills eye, hut Robert was on the alert
and repulsed him with such violence
that the ofllcer almost lost his equilibrium. The scene threatened to become a pugilistic encounter; but
Robert, who was vigorous In spite of
hla sedentary life, seized his adversary's hands, and said, sternly:
"Have you lost your senses? We
are only a few feet from all those
people, and they must have heard your
angry words. We must not have that
young girl's name mixed up in this
quarrel. The affair, however, can not
stop here. You want a duel? Well, 1
am not averse to it myself. But we
must find a plausible pretext. You
have the reputation of being a sharp
gambler. I shall meet you at Trouvllle
nt the end of the week. We shall appear together on the beach at the
hour of the promendade and act as
comrades, as In tho past. Later we
can have a game of piquet, and the
quarrel will easily follow. Then we
shall fight to the death. If you kill me,
it will he one solution of the matter.
But I warn you that If the advantage
is on my side, I will not spare you. I
shall kill you without mercy, for I
hate you!"
"Your hatred can not be more Intense than mine! As to the result, I
have no fears. I am a skillful swordsman, while you scarcely know how to
handle a sword; and as to the pistol,
1 hit the mark five times out of six."
Robert shrugged his shoulders. At
that moment, he cared little for life.
J le had at last read his own heart. By
the intensity of his hatred, he realized
that he loved the sister of the woman
to whom he was pledged, that he
loved her madly, and was a traitor to
his word. Marthe had offered him his
freedom, but he had refused to take
it, and he was, therefore, faithless.
Tho captain went straight to his
horse, and galloped off without taking
leave of the party of young girls
grouped around the fountain, commenting anxiously on the quarrel they
had partly overheard. Robert excused
his friend's abrupt departure by pleading a sudden indisposition. No one,
however, was duped by this apology,
and the day that had begun so gaily
ended sadly and gloomily.
The whole party now started toward the road, where the carriages'
awaited them; Marthe, however, succeeded iu falling behind the rest with
"What has happened?" she asked,
"Why, nothing, my dear Marthe.
Only I fear Bertrand took that wager
about the champagne seriously. I
remonstrated with him, and, for a
moment, he lost his temper. But he
is a sensible fellow after all, and understood that the best thing he could
do was to go, and he went. That is
Marthe, not wishing to show that
alio doubted this version of the story,
remained silent, absorbed in reflection. She had seen and understood
many things during that long day.
She suffered intensely, and shut herself in that cold reserve habitual to
her, to hide her feelings.
"Robert," she said at last, "I wish
to have some serious conversation
wilh you. There will be a reception at
the Robinson's Thursday. I shall send
Edmee with my aunt, and find some
excuse to remain at homo myself.
Meet me at the stone-cross at half-
past throe. No one will disturb us
"I will be there, Marthe," he answered, gravely.
His heart, was also filled with sadness. Tho life which had appeared so
sweet and beautiful before him now
seemed to open lamentably gloomy.
"You know, Marthe, that I should
he delighted to stay with you," said
Edmee, sweetly, us she bent over her
Bister, "and you would see what an
excellent nurse 1 am."
"Thank you, my darling; when 1
have these sick headaches, I must
have quiet and solitude. Make my excuses to Airs. Robinson and be sure
to have a good time."
Edmee looked at her sister's pale
face compassionately. She was never
ill, and Marthe's heavy eyelids made
her appreciate her own pink cheeks
and cherry lips. She lowered the cur-
talus gave a satisfied glance at her
pretty figure in the mirror as slip
passed, and returned to her Ulster's
aid*   "I wiih 1, ouulJ .be. of vuue use
to you," she said, kissing tne pals
cheek once more; "you are always so
good to me."
Marthe smiled and dismissed her
with a cautiou not to flirt wilh tho
"Nor with Robert?" retorted the
girl, laughing.
"Nor with Robert," repeated Marthe, gravely.
Ah soon as the carriage-with her
aunt and sister had rolled away, Marthe arose, bathed her face in cold
waler, and feverishly paced up and
down the room. Then going to her
boudoir, she took out her diary. She
was really ill, having passed a sleepless night, but she felt that she must
do something while awaiting the
hour fixed to meet Robert, and she
wrote rapidly, confiding her thoughts
to her only confidant.
"Thursday, July 29.���It is now only
half-past two; I have time to think,
to question myself.
"What Is going on within me?

When Mme. d'Ancel asked me to become her daughter, I imposed the
condition that, Robert and myself

planned, crumbled like a house of

Do all those loving words and caresses come from the' heart? Are you,

all the joys of life? But what mutters,

"4.15 p. m. It is done. All is ovei���
Robert is free. And It all took place
very simply, as if by those few words
I were not destroying my happiness
forever. Passionate words and long
phrases have nothing to do with the
real crisis of life.

I can not rest. It Is almost a relief
to go over the scene again by myself.

* "I feel sure that if 1 had said 'yes'

and for an instant I was tempted to
utter this 'yes,' but remained silent.
" 'You are not well, Marthe,' he
added, concernedly; 'you are pale and
'"I slept badly last night. But let
us sit down Robert, I have a great
deal to say and we are safe from interruption here.'
"It was warm and sultry, heavy
dark clouds overhung the sky, and
notwithstanding the heat, a cold
breath of wind made me shiver now
and then. A storm was brewing; the
ocean was gray, a dull melanchollly
"Instead of speaking, I gazed far
out on the waters, at the white crested
billows that announced a rough, sea,
saying to myself that when these
white points should reach the shore,
when these panting, hurrying waves
should dash on the sands, I would say
to him: 'It is all over.' I was cowardly,
but also very weary���I almost lost
my self-control. He took my hand
gently, affectionately, and I felt that
he was looking at me, that he was
trying to gaze into my eyes. I was
still watching the white line of foaming waves that rolled rapidly nearer
and nearer. The breaths of ley wind
became more frequent.
" 'Yon are feverish, Marthe.'
"These words were so full of tenderness, of pity that the tears gushed to
my eyes. 1 was determined not to
weep before him���I withdrew my
hand from his clasp and said, calmly:
" 'It Is nothing. Fever always accompanies a sick headache. But I did
not come to speak of my health.'
" 'What can you wish to speak of,
If not of our approaching marriage?'
he said, tenderly.
" 'It seemed to me that I would not
have the courage to tell him what I
had come to say, unless I did so at
once. And It was In a voice that
sounded strangely to my own ears
that I replied quickly:
" 'That marriage, Robert, shall

"A dead silence   followed,   and   I
could hear his hurried breathing.
"'Why?' he  asked   coldly,   almost
llUi'yMu ���  . .. -       '  .
���"Because I was not made to
marry. Because I love solitude and
liberty, and in spite of the affection
I feel for you, I could not entrust that
liberty into your hands!'
'" 'It Is not that. Look at me straight
in the eyes, Marthe, you who have
never lied���there is something else.
What is it?" aj[
"Then without knowing what I was
saying, I cried out:
" 'Have pity on ine, Robert���I am
suffering. I suffer for you, for myself,
for the pain I shall Inflict on your
mother. Do you not see that if I could
conscientiously be your wife, I would
say: "Take me, I am yours for life?'
but I can not, I assure you, I can not.'
"'You must have thought of all
these things before our engagement;
for I si ill persist in calling H an engagement, If you have changed your
mind since, you must have a reason
���and 1 want to know It.'
"it seemed to me--I may have
beeu wrong���that lie Insisted only to
acquit hla own conscience, nnd because he was convinced that 1 would
uot yield Wlial would happen if I
yielded? This thought brought buck
my self possession.
" 'Remember our agreement,' I
said. 'This marriage was to take place
only if, with time, our love became
closer and more intense. But we aro
now further from each other than we
were six weeks ago. This appears a
sufficient reason. We love, yes, but as
Iuliniate friends, or brother and sister. That may suffice you, hut to me
it is not enough. I would he unhappy
without contributing to your happiness. It is better to surfer a little now
���and I will admit, Robert, that I am
doing this only after a great struggle���than to live together for years
without ever being really united.
During this time of probation our
love has decreased Instead of augmenting. What would it be if we
were bound forever? Believe me,
Robert, it is for tho best. Lot us part
good filends, without bitterness, with
out. recriminations. Later, you will ad
mit that I was right.'
"And thus I pleaded against myself,
and little by little he allowed himself
to be persuaded, for his heart pleaded with me. In a very short time his
emotion vanished. I had lifted a great
weight from his heart���or from his
conscience rather���and he was infinitely grateful to me. Ho, however,
continued to protest for appearance's
sake. I felt it, and he soon perceived
it. I had used only vague formulas to
explain my change of sentiments, yet
he was satisfied. But he has a noble
and tender nature, and he must have
understood that, notwithstanding my
Impassibility, I was suffering.
" 'You speak of friendship, Marthe,'
he said; 'for my part, 1 can not .^nd
words to express how much tenderness, affection and admiration enter
into this friendship! 1 have known
you from childhood, and have always
found you true and brave; of a goodness almost too perfect, always forgetting yourself to think of others.
Notwithstanding your serenity, I
know that you are capable of profound
enthusiasms, sublime heroisms; and,
in spite of all, you have retained an
adorable simplicity and naivete, with
a great deal of romance in your nature. Alas! it Is that which stands between us now. You want tho Ideal,
the impossible. In this life we must
content ourselves with mingled sentiments, incomplete, yet very acceptable
happiness. 1 assure you, there are
many men and women in the world
who would be satisfied with a marriage such as ours might be'
"His voice, which at first had been
bitter, was now gentle and caressing.
The crisis had passed. He now only
felt the relief that succeeds unpleasant emotions.
"And 1? ah! well, I still watched
the threatening white crested waves,
so close now, and vaguely pilled the
golden sands that would soon he lushed by the furious gale. The wind
drove the heavy, dailt clouds over the
sky. Suddenly, a vivid streak of lightning rent the heavens, and the thunder burst like a cannon shot. Wo both
sprang to our feet.
" 'Hurry home, Marthe, you will
just have time before the rain,' said
" 'Good-by, Robert!' I murmured.
"He was much agitated. I believe I
was on the point of fainting, but my
sole thought was to keep mv self-cot*-
trol and not cry out: 'It is not true���
you are blind and will not see���I love
you; I love you, us no other woman
shall ever love you!' But I was silent:
Then he bent over me and said, in a
tremulous voice:
'"Since we are truly parting, let me
kiss you, Marthe, my dear, dear sister.'
"I raised my pale cheeks to his lips,
and shivered from head to foot as I
felt his kiss. He thought I shlv
with cold and said:
"'Now go quickly,
ready to burst.""
"While I write the thunder roars
with fury, the rain pours in torrents.
That fury of the elements pleases me
It accords with my feelings. Besides,
I shall be longer alone. Aunt Relie is
afraid of the storm and will not venture out until it is over.
The   storm    is
"My God! my God! how I suffer,
how unhappy I am, how I wish I

it simply a common-place word of affection, or was It said with a particular intention? Am I destined to become his sister later? Alas!���
"���I have watched the hands of my
little clock for more than an hour,
gazing on them stupidly, in a sort of
stupor. The storm is over. I shall return to my long chair. Edmee will
find me as she left me; I shall have
slept, dreamed���what sad slumber,
what a lugubrious dream!"
Edmee tip-toed into the room, fearing to awaken her sister who did not
move. As she was softly walking
away, however, Marthe turned and
said, gently:
"Is it you, my darling?"
"There! I disturbed you," she said,
with a pout. "1 am always doing something bad. My best intentions are always followed by the most deplorable results."
"You did not disturb me, I was
only half asleep. Did you have a good
"Not very. To begin with, that
storm made me nervous; aud then,
quite a number failed to keep their
word and did not come. The men especially were 'conspicuous by their
absence,' so your wise recommendations were superfluous. The captain
was afraid of a few drops of rain, although at the rate he rides that horse
it would take him scarcely three-quarters of an hour to come from Trou-
ville. Besides he had promised me to
be there. It will do your heart good
to see how coldly I shall receive him
the next time he calls. As to Robert
d'Ancel there is no excuse, for lie is
a neighbor. Jessie assured me he
would come, but he did not."
'fro your pretty toilette was a pure
loss, my poor child!"
"Oh, you may laugh at your little
sister!   It  at  least  shows  that  your
horrid   headache    is    improving.    My
I dress was not a total loss, however,
'for  I  eublueaied  the few that were
there'. But, alter all, It was a poor Harvest."
"Edmee, Edmee!���when will you
learn to look at life otherwise than an
Immense field of pleasure?"
"Oh, some day. When I am married."
"Then you will stop being a coquette?"
Edmee reflected for a moment;
then, kneeling beside her sister, replied, gravely: "My dear Marthe,
there is coquetry and coquetry, I believe I shall always be greedy of admiration; that is not forbidden. Is it?
But I share Jessie Robinson's opinion; one should amuse herself well
while a young girl, aud that means to
be courted. Then, once married, well,
be married for good."
"That Is, you will think of your
husband only, huve but one object in
life to make him happy and be entirely
devoted  to him?"
"Yes���something like that. Now.

"My dear little Edmee���my dear

restrain her tears.

Cement Work.
It seems that the foundation has
much to do with the success of cement
work, according to the Cement Era; for
stable floors or clay or loam one should
proceed as follows: Excavate six to
eight inches for foundations, fill In
with cinders, crushed stone or sand;
spread in three inch layers and tramp
well. Foundations should be well flooded and allowed to stand for a week or
more In order to become thoroughly
compacted; smooth off to a level surface.
To Drive Away Red Mites.
To exterminate red mites remove
nests, roosts and every movable object in henhouse, coat with good hot
whitewash, a little crude carbolic acid
added, ceilings, walls, nests, cracks,
floors and dropping boards thoroughly.
When the house is dry paint the roosts
with a mixture of five parts of coal oil
and one part of carbolic acid. Repeat
again twice at Intervals of a month,
and your house will be entirely free
from these pests, according to Poultry

There Is a common idea that fowls
can only be maintained in health where
there is a large grass run, but this is
quite a mistake, says the American
Poultry Advocate. A few hens eon-
fined in a Bmall yard if fed properly
and kept clean will lay more freely
than those that have an unlimited
range, and, usually being in more sheltered quarters, they are more likely to
lay In the winter thau farm poultry. It
Is not an expensive business to wire
off a corner of the back garden and put
up a small house. A wooden house for
half a dozen fowls need cost but very
little, and wire for the run is very
cheap. The house must have ventilation provided at the top above the level
of tbe perch. An old box wilh a little
well broken straw In it will do for a
nest The floor of the house can bo
made of earth beaten hard aud level.
A sprinkling of dry ashes under the
perch will enable the droppings to be
removed with a trowel lu a few seconds. A portion of the wire run should
If possible be covered so as to afford
protection from the rain, and under
this should be placed a good sized box
of dry sand or sifted earth. In this the
fowls will cleau themselves, a great
essential, conducing immensely to
their health.
The feeding of the hens Is a very
simple matter. There must be a warm
breakfast of meal given as soon after
the birds are off the perch as can be
managed. This meal should be composed of middlings and barley meal in
equal ports mixed into a stiff paste
with hot water. Any scraps of meat,
etc., from the bouse can be added and
stirred In with It. At noon some cut
grass, cabbage leaves or other green
food must be given and before the
birds go to roost some grain, such as
wheat Poultry mixtures of various
grains are not good; neither Is corn,
except e handful or two In the way of
a treat It is most Important that the
fowls should only have as much at
each feeding es they will eat greedily;
none must be left over. In cold or very
wet weather a little pepper may be
tdded to the meal. There must always
he plenty of fresh water for drinking.

���alt For Fowl*.
It Is a prevalent notion that salt Is
poisonous to fowls, and this popular
Impression Is based on many unhappy
experiences with It when fed too liberally. Of course, Bait Is poisonous if
fed largely; but, on the other hand, It
Is beneficial when fed In moderate
amounts���that Is, at the rate, say, of a
half ounce to 100 adult fowls per day.
It is true that a great many fowls have
been killed by eating salt and by having their food mixed with the water
in which salt meat had been boiled.
The careless throwing out of rock salt,
which the birds eat under the Impression that they are eating grit, Is the
most usual way of killing fowls with
salt���Western Poultry Journal.
Fog Whittle Fool* Moose,
Whether or not the fog whistle at the
entrance to St. John harbor should be
compelled to take out a game license
would seem to be a question to be decided by the game commission, says a
special despatch from St. John, N. B.,
to The New York Tribune. Partridge
Island Is situated about two miles
from the City of St. John, and on it is
one of the principal signal stations. A
few months ago there was Installed
on the Island a new fog whistle which
has been the cause of much excitement among the moose which haunt
the woods around the city. This whistle gives a long drawn out blow in a
low note and ends the blast with a
short sounding blow two tones lower.
The whistle exactly Imitates the call of
a cow moose and Is having the effeot
of such calls.
It is not uncommon for moose to find
their way Into the city and walk quietly through the streets during the earlier hours of the day. They are never
molested and have grown bold. Since
the now fog whistle was established
these wandering moose have become
more plentiful and there Is no doubt
that they are attracted by what they
think is the call of their mates. The
hull moose stroll calmly through Falr-
ville and Lancaster to the water's
edge and then attempt to swim to the
Island. None have ever swam the full
distance, for before reaching the Island
they evidently become aware that
things are not what they seem and
that there Is something wrong with th*
call. Huntsmen are anxiously awaiting the open season, when the moos*
are likely to be depleted In number*.

The Wichita Forest and Game Preserve In  Oklahoma.
There Is something about the buffalo
which appeals strongly to the American's patriotism and makes him welcome the latest step in the effort to
preserve It from extinction. Twelve of
the buffaloes from the New York Zoological park and several more from
other herds In captivity will be placed
In a big buffalo range In the Wichita
forest and game preserve in Oklahoma.
Twelve square miles of prairie, forest
and mountain, watered by a winding
creek and having good pasture of mes-
qulte and blue stemmed grass, will be
fenced off for the use of tbe herd.
Naturalists expect big things from
this buffalo range, for, while the buffalo
herd at the Bronx park has thrived, the
close confinement necessary there
makes permanent breeding problematical, it Is largely through the efforts
of the director, William T. Hornuday,
that congress was led to make an appropriation of $15,0(10 to fence off the
Oklahoma range and maintain tbe herd.
The nucleus of the herd will be selected
from that now at Bronx park, but to
prevent too much Inbreeding animals
from other herds will be taken to Wichita as well. About twenty buffaloes
will be placed ou the range. On this
continent at the present time there aro
said to be only eighteen wild buffaloes
���eight in Alberta and ten in the Yellowstone National park.
It is expected that the work of fencing off the range���It will take fourteen
miles of fence to inclose the space���will
bcg'n at once in order that the buffaloes may be shipped in tbe fall. That
Is the best time to transport them with
safety. It is not thought that the cattle
will suffer from lack of shelter, as the
range was at one time a wintering
place for the herds which roamed the
plains and hills of the far west. Great
buffalo wallows may still be seen there,
while skulls and skeletons bear silent
witness to the relentless warfare which
Indian and white hunters made on the
animals. To the northeast the range Is
completely surrounded by hills and
mountains, which will protect the cattle
from the severity of storms.

Skeleton  and  Old Books���New Brunswick  Men   Discover Traces of
Dwelling Used 200 Years Ago.
A remarkable discovery was made on
a recent Sunday afternoon, by Charles
E. Stewart and his unele, J. E. Stewart, near Johnsvllle, N. B., about el��,*it
miles back of the village of Bath, where
the bones of a human being were
found In a 'blockaded cave. The Stewarts, who have long been desirous of
Investigating, went to the cave, and
with dynamite the obstruction to the
cave was demolished. The men found
twelve stone steps leading to a passage seven feet long and two feet wide,
this opening into a main room about
twelve feet square, where they found
the hones of a human being lying on a
bunk of stone.
No trace of flesh was there and the
Ibones were dry and crumbly. Near the
bones was a gold ring on which was
Inscribed "John Long, Dec. 177a." A
few Inches away was a silver watch,
which bore the date 1740. Underneath the bones were fuund several
traces of coarse hair, which would Indicate that the body had lain on a
skin or something of that nature.
Underneath the bunk were found three
books, two in Latin, the third written
In English.
One of the Latin books was Suetonius' History of Rome, dated 1667, and
on the fly leaf were several Latin Inscriptions. Inside was written: "B. A.
Strong, Oxford College, May 24, 1G76."
Underneath this appeared tho name
James Hayward, 1C85. The other book
was Seneca's Tragedies, and It was
marked the date 1059.
In the English book was written the
names of David Fowles and Michael
Carney. Around the books, which were
In a good state of preservation, was a
large piece of bark on which were
marks belleV.-d to be plans of other
caves. At one end of the room and Immediately underneath the little hole In
tha roof was an old fireplace. What
this slgnifles the people here do not
know, but the investigation will be
Though several persons 1>y the name
of Strong have figured on the rolls of

the Initials "B. A." Moreover, there
was no one by the name of Strong at
the university in 1676, or within 20
years of that date, according to Alumni
Oxonenses, edited by Foster. It might
also be pointed out that Oxford "college" proves an alibi, though the term
might be used.
Praise For "Tom" Talt.
If you ever meet a visitor from Australia and want him to say a good
thing for Canada and Canadians ask
him what he thinks of Mr. Thomas
Talt, the manager of the Government
railways in the State of Victoria. Ho
Is sure to become enthusiastic at once,
unless he is a Laborlte, and even then
he will admit that Mr. Q. R. R. Cock-
burn's son-in-law Is a first-class administrator.
Mr. George Harris Hays, of Melbourne, who passed through Canada
en route to England, was most emphatic In his good opinion of Mr. Talt
when he said: "Our railways are In the
very best possible condition. We get
fine service, we haven't had a block In
two years, and, furthermore, the roads
are paying, and all that Is due to the
man you sent out from here to run
them, Thomas Talt. He has done a
great work there, a work which no other man has ever been able to do. He
tackled In those railways one of the
toughest Jobs a man ever ran Into.
Railways In our country, you know, are
owned and worked by the Government.
So when Tait came along deputations
came to him from all over the country to ask him for reduced rates and
all kinds of favors, and the politicians
got after him and every one was trying
to work him for all he was worth. Why,
I tried to do it myself.
"I went to see him with a great big
deputation, and we told him he was
[ oppressing the poor people and small
farmers. All he answered was, 'I am
going to make the Victorian railways
pay." And he did make them pay, and
furthermore, he is the only man who
has ever been able to do It. Before
he came along these railways showed
an annual deficit of ��200,000.
"Just think of that, and now they
pay, and on account of this great
gain the Government budget shows an
Increase Instead of a deficit for the
first time In the history of the country. Talt Is a great railroad manager, and he Is now getting the credit
for it In Australia from the very
people who, when he first came, tried
to bowl him down."

George Ham's Versatility.
Wherever George Ham, the veteran
newspaper man, and representative of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, goes
there Is sure to be a trail of stories.
Here are a couple of them, the first
told by The Nelson Herald:
"When George Ham, the well-known
: C. P. R. official, was in Nelson last
week; a deputation waited upon him
and urged In eloquent language that the
C. P. R. should build an hotel in that
city to accommodate the tourist trade.
George listened patiently to the harangue and at its close remarked: "Well,
boys, I don't think the C. P. R. can afford to put up an hotel here, but,' and
he put his hand in his pocket and pulled out an Imitation '100,000 bill given
to him as an ad for Saskatoon and
handed It to the leader of the deputation, 'I am glad to contribute personally this amount towards the scheme.'
Nothing wore was said about tho hotel."
The Vancouver Province chronicled
the other yarn:
"President Roosevelt, according to
the statement of Mr. George Ham, will
make a tour of Canada as soon as his
present term has expired, and will visit
Vancouver. No doubt amid the pressure of his other duties he has had time
to read our literature and Inform himself of the advantages of this city as a
place for settlement."

Not  a   Single   Professed   Anarchist   In
the Good C.ty���The Queen
City Leader.
Toronto cannot boast of having tho
same number of Socialist workers aa
Montreal, says The Montreal Standard.
In the latter city they are both numerous and aggressive. In the former
they are less c mspicuous and more
conservative In carrying on their propaganda, for let It not be forgotten that
Toronto has not yet had a May Da/
But If the Queen City cannot boast
ef having a Socialist movement as
strong and as active as that of Montreal, It can lay claim to possessing a
great number of Intelligent Socialists,
who do not rave and tear their hair In
the revolutionary fashion, but seek to
make converts through the means of
argument and Illustration rather than
the wholesale condemnation of everything capitalistic.
Members of Trade Unions.
The majority of Toronto English-
speaking Socialists are nearly all members of their respective trade unions.
Their advocacy of their doctrines Is
not confined to converting Individual
tiade unionists to their way of political reasoning, but they also have mass
meetings and seek to teach the toller
the "facts" of their cult. What distinguishes Socialist propaganda in Toronto from that of Montreal Is that
while the followers of the red flag in
Montreal are nearly all foreigners mors
than B0 per cent, of Toronto Socialists
are all British subjects, Including the
recognized leader of the movement.
There are at present three groups,
the nationality of them being English,
Finnish and Jewish, with an Italian
local in the course of formation. All
told, they number some four hundred.
Movement Started Five Years Ago.
Ths movement Is not very old, having been started some five years ago
by a number of Canadians, and was at
the highest point of Its progress when
It could boast of having a newspaper
to set forth Its views. Since that time
It has not made great progress, but
Its followers never lose an opportunity
of making capital out of and exposing
the tactics of their opponents.
The Socialists In Toronto and Ontario are, however, ahead of their Que-
beo brethren In one respect, and that
Is In the person of their leader, Mr.
James -Simpson.
Believe In Their Leader.
The rank and file of organized labor
In Toronto are thoroughly convinced
that though the movement of which Mr.
Simpson Is the local chief may not be
the right one to Improve the condition
of the masses, there Is no questioning
his sincerity and high regard for principle. That they believe in his sincer-
lty Is evidenced by the fact that he
has been, for the first time in the history of Ontario, If not In Canada, elected a school trustee on the Socialist
tloket, receiving over 6,000 votes. In
addition he is vice-president of ths
-Dominion Trades Congress, as well as
president of the Toronto Typographical Union, which recently elected him
delegate to the Victoria Convention of
that body, which, if. the views of his
supporters meet with the approval of
the majority of tire delegates, will eleot
him president.
Introduosd Sooialist Resolution.
It was he that introduced the memorable Socialist resolution which created such an uproar at tho Montreal
oonventlon of the Trades Congress.
Unfortunately, however, for the progress of the movement In Toronto, Its
Intellectual standard-bearer has not
been able to Influence a large number
of bis fellow wage-workers to think as
himself. There being fewer aliens In
the chief olty of Ontario than ara to
be found In Montreal Is responsible for
Its slow growth.
The great mass of tollers there da
not seemingly care to Introduce the
change of property ownership that Socialists advocate. They prefer to work
along conservative trade union lines tor
any Improvement In their natural welfare. With that stubbornness that characterizes the Englishman above all other, they fear change, and thus It comes
about that though Toronto may Justly
claim to be a progressive olty, (from ths
standpoint of those who wish to substitute the co-operative commonwealth
for the present competitive system of
production and sale, Montreal has the
distinction of having the largest number of Socialists to be found in any on*
city In Canada Strange to relate our
special Investigator, In spite cf the
most diligent enquiry, was not able to
locate on Anarchist, either professed
or silent, In its environs.

Dress of a Dandy of the Early Nineteenth Century.
A cure for the confirmed roller
against modern dress might be a course
of inspection through a file of old
fashion magazines or the perusal of
such accounts as are given by the
author of "Sketches of Lynn." The
description is that of a suit worn In
the first part of the nineteenth century.
The boots were an important article
of dress. The toes were made as broad
as the ball of the foot, with the corners well rounded, giving tbe shoe tbe
resemblanee to the snout of a shovel
nosed shark. They were very snug and
required strong straps. In order to get
Into a fashionable pair the heel of the
stocking was well soaped and some
pulverized soap sprinkled into the boot.
Tbe length of time It took to get one
ou depended ou the strength of the
owner aud the strap.
The stylish overcoat displayed five
capes, one above the other. The trousers were expected to fit ;w tight as the
skin. Just how they were put on is a
mystery. The coat was especially snug
under the sleeves, aud the velvet collar
scraped up the back of the head. The
camlet overcoats after a little wear,
became as stiff as birch bark.
The thing worn about tbe neck was
called a stock. This name was appropriate In Its suggestion of an instrument of punishment. The stock wus
from three to six inches high, and was
made stiff. A mau was forced to look
straight ahead. Only by careful management could he see a little on either
side. About halfway between his eyes
and ears two little points of collar
stuck up like toothpicks.
Ruffled bosoms and wristbands finished the costume, with tbe addition of
a tall silk hat. When Inclosed In this
manner, with a dash of attar of roses
on his handkerchief, the man of tbe
period was considered irresistible.
Position    of    Prince    Albert,    Royal
Consort of Queen Victoria.
A woman looked up with a laugh
from u heavy volume she was reudlug.
"Now I know," she said, "why Queen
Victoria was so fond of the prince consort. This husband did not merely regard his wife as his equal; he regarded
her as immeasurably his superior, saying that It was his duty to sink his
own individual existence In her. Listen to this letter that Prince Albert
wrote to the Duke of Wellington. Here
Is a champion of woman's rights indeed. Don't you think, though, it Is
going too far for a man to humble
himself so low as this?"
She then read from her book In a
sarcastic voice:
My Dear Duke���In the question whether
It Is advisable that I should take the
command ot the army I have come to the
conclusion that my decision ought entirely to be guided by the consideration
whether It would Interfere with or assist
my position of consort to the sovereign.
This position Is a most peculiar and delicate one. While a female sovereign has
a great many disadvantages In comparison with a king, yet if she Is married and
her husband understands and does his
duty her position, on the other hand, has
many compensatory advantages and In
the long run will be found to be stronger
even than that of the male sovereign.
But this requires that the husband should
entirely sink his own individual existence
In that of his wife and that lie should aim
at no power by himself or for himself,
being content to be the husband of the
queen, the private secretary of the sovereign and the tutor of the royal children.
Reading; on ��� Train.
If you travel back and forth Into
town every day you no doubt read
your paper or a magazine' on the train.
While this Is not, Indeed, tbe best practice for tbe eyes, it seems a pity to
waste so much time which might be
turned to good account. Much of the
annoyance which comes from train
reading is due to tbe jolting of the
cars, which continually knocks the
printed line out of focus with the eye.
This can be in some degree obviated
by laying a card or some other object
below the line to be read and moving
it steadily downward while reading.
This acts as a guide to the eye aud
helps to keep the sight fixed. Those
who have tried It say that it wonderfully assists to decrease the difficulty
of reading while in motion.
Trade Emblems on Tombstones.
In Scotland it was for a long time
usual to place on a man's tombstone
the symbols of his trade. Especially
was this the case at Dunblane, where,
In the burial ground of tbe abbey, It
has been found tbut of those tombstones which are from 100 to 200 years
old about one-fourth ore thus marked,
the symbols being In low relief. A
sugar cane may be seen as showing
the grave of a grocer; an ax and saw,
with hammer aud nails, occur on the
grave of a carpenter; an awl and a
hammer on that of a shoemaker. There
are many other graves similarly
marked.���London Answers.
Cutting Eyelashes.
An eyelash Is pointed. A cut lash Is
blunt. A lash once cut never again
becomes pointed. Every lash lives a
variable time and then falls out to be
replaced by a fresh one. When a cut
lush so falls the newcomer Is pointed.
So any mischlof resulting from cutting
the lashes will be remedied by time.
Opinions differ as to whether lash cutting promotes growth. That it renders
the lashes unsightly is very certain.

oMSW.er it. if you can.
Why is it that every other town, city
and village in Canada is flourishing ?
Why is it that we, wk, WE, with our
mountains .of mineral, three churches,
���Jive saloons, one brewery and two railways are absolutely���yes absolutely
���Starving ? (Loud Sighs anil Sensation).

It will be noted that the ore shipments
have greatly increased from many mines
and that many more shipping mines are
from week to week being recorded upon
the list. At present there arc upwards
of 140 mines shipping from various
points in Ynle-Kootenay but the smelter
are dealing with ores, principally for
fluxing purposes, from several mines
outside these limits.
The following are the shipments from
Slocan mines, made during the first
nine months of the present year.
