Famous Case of Star vs.
White Thus Concluded
By Full Court.
After a lapse of seven months Irom
the termination of the trial, judgment
lias been delivered in the Star-White
case and the Nelson verdict has been
reversed, tho present finding of the full
court comprising Justices Irving, Martin
and Morrison, the latter dissenting, being in favor of the Star Mining and
Milling Co., plaintiffs, and full costs
are awarded the plaintiffs in all courts,
and an injunction is given. An enquiry is also directed as lo theore taken
by the defendants. This case has
ereated considerable interest among
mining men in British Columbia.
Eor the .benefit of our readers who
are not conversant with the circumstances which led to suits that followed
unit and in which over half a million
dollars are said to bo .involved in costs
alone, we will endeavor as impartially
as it is possible, to give in plain unvarnished language a corollary of facts
so that any intelligent layman unfamiliar with mining phraseology may
become better acquainted with a celebrated case whicli at present disturbs
tho classes iu onr mining community
to the verge of a feud. We wish at
thia juncture to remark that it is immaterial to us which tide wi**.*j. Right
is right, ar.d it is our only hope that
light will triumph aud that the commercial iuteieals 01 the district will
best be served hy the campaign of active mining that wilt fellow the linn]
verdict. The defendants are likely to
The B. N. White Co. own two 000 ft.
claims, which are separated bv two
fractious owned bv Jno. M. Harris,
The former has rights under the old
mining law which permits the owners
to follow tlieir vein to the dip through
and beyond their side lines, i.e., inlo
Mr. Harris' ground, while Mr. Harris
is entitled to mine un ler the present
law within his own ground. Thus
arises, with the change of laws, the
possibility of a double ownership to the
mineral found on the ground.
The old law was based on the idea
that all minerals occur in true lissuio
veins, and on the consideration that
Uie discoverer of mineral on the surface waB entitled to that which exit-ted
at depth: hence " ex-lateral rights."
The true fissure vein idea was soon
shown to be of limited application, and
a change in the law was necessary.
This was effected about 14 years ago.
The present law places definite limitations to every mineral claim and most
properly defines those limitations without reference to speculation as to the
pioper origin of the mineral.
The change of law has undoubtedly
saved for B.C. many a legal conflict
regarding the ownership of minerals,
but by preserving the rights of the
claims held under the old law and at
the same time recognizing the validity
of claims adjoining them under the now
law, it has invited conflict where these
interests overlap. The question of
overlapping interests forms the basis of
this litigation.
In 1901 Mr. Harris issued a writ to
restrain the White Co. from trespassing
on this ground. This trespass was
denied uuder the ex. lateral rights
principle. As this principle requires
the continuity of the vein over the
ground where ex lateral rights are
claimed, the issue resolved itself into
the consideration whether, tho defendant could or could not prove this continuity. This was done to the satisfaction
of the Chief Justice at Nelson and decision given in their favor. Appeal was,
however, granted, an 1 permission was
obtained to do work under couit juris-
diiti m which would enlighten matters
aa to the conliuniiy of the vein. In
view nf the further evidence obtained
in this invo'tigatorv work the .ippeal
re mlved itself into a new trial hcfi re
the full court. 'I his trial took place
laut April and judgment wns delivered
last Saturday in favor of Mr. Harris.
As the continuity of veins is not
Jdeutical with continuity of ore bodies,
the queslion of walls and consideration
of vein fillings have to be taken up and
identified, hence the necessity of experts
to interpret these matters.
This case lias all along been specialized by the extreme contradictory
nature of the expert interpretations,
which indicated that the vein possessed
the required continuity, while those on
Mr. Harris' side interpreted a complete
break in the vein hy a " fault " specialized by the name of the " black
fissure," this latter throwing the two
portions of the vein some 1,200 feet
apart. Obviously boll, views cannot be
correct, and the average lay mind is
apt to conclude that expert interpretations ure of much lcm valuo than their
co��t. It must not be forgotten, however, that these interpretations are
purely subjective and not capable of
direct proof. Their validity will depend
the accuracy of tlie hypothetical conditions which form Iheir basis and on
the possibility of predicting what will
be found on unexplored ground through
tlieir aid. Mr. Han is' experts scored
on the latter point, as the evidence o!
exploratory work dono was in accordance with tlieir original interpretation.
Thus the Lecond (stage of the case is
concluded. What will be the next
move or moves is impossible to predict.
It would appear unlikely, however,
that th'.. decision will be aceepted as
final. The judges deserve special commendation for having bjen able to reduce the chaotic mass of txpert evidence
lo renson within the limited period of
seven months.

this. Sounds strange; but nevertheless when silver bobbed around four

Christmas is in the air just now, and
with the children of New Denver,
Christmas is synonymous with operetta.
That is their contribution to the festive
season and they are willingly giving
hours each day In order that their parents may have a good time on Christinas eve.
Last year they took the parents a
trip to Fairyland, for they realized
that no criticism could be offered regarding their depiction of a land which to
every imagination is different; but
having "found themselves" this year,
they essay a bolder flight and seek to
portray some scenea from the Spanish
Castle of Aguillar in lhe Stirring days
proceeding tbe Armada.
The plot centres around tbe disappearance of the Lady Hinda���a
daughter of the widowed Countess Isabella���who was stolen in early life by
Gipsy robbers who lurk in the surrounding woods���and in the trials of
two ardent lovers, rival suitors for the
hand of the lady Inez, the countess'
elder daughter.
Act 1 introduces us to the high life
and rigid etiquette of the countess'
court and the success of the suit of Don
Carlos, a Spabish lord, to the discomfiture of Sir Ronald Graeme, "a Scottish
knight from o'er the sea."
In Act 2 we find ourselves in the
hauntB of the Gypsies, where we are
entertained by song and dance. There
is then a scene with the soldiers who
are seeking the lost Lady Hinda, and
where the captain harangues them with
no uncertain voice; a glimpse of the
peasants with their pompous and fussy
burgomaster follows.
Then comes the seizure of the Gypsies'
camp and tho revelation that the
Gypsy Queen is no other than the long-
lost Lady Hindu.
The final act depicts the reunion of
mother and the celebrations consequent
thereon; and we find that the talisman
which has healed the strife between the
rivals and their followers and brought
about the happy ending iB a four-leaved
clover, which the German sprite Gluck-
Anf and his sister Gretchen succeed in
distributing to ihe principal characters.
Hence the title "The Four-Leaved
The whole is interspersed with lively
choruses, solos, action songs, and dances,
and the elaborate and fancy costumes
lend an air of reality to tho scene.
The people of New Denver thought
last years' operetta a success. If Mr.
and Mrs. Rankine's anticipations are
realized, thiB year's will far excel it.
Our Fruit Growers' Column.
The season for pruning young fruit
trees is upon us, and tho wily fruit tree
agent is already here with his marvellous new sorts and fascinating stories ol
the crops to be obtained from the trees
he sells. Our friends sent by the Government also have a rather bewildering habit of springing new varieties
upon us or condemning loine sort tliey
had previously recommended.
On one piece of advice, however, all
are agreed, and that is that in growing
fruit for the market too many varieties
should not be planted, and that an
orchard of, say, 1,000 apple trees that
contain only two or three gojd varieties
is infinitely to be preferred to ono that
contains a lorge number even oi tho
best selected varieties.
This principal can be carried even
further to advantage. It is well not to
have too great a variety in any one
neighborhood. We shall find it profitable to study what our neighbors are
growing and if satisfied that tho variety
that they have selected are thoroughly
good ones, to fall in line with their way
of working. In this way a local reputation can be built up, and tbe wholesale fruit merchants will know that
they can obtain a good supply of some
particular variety, and we shall not
have to fill up the cars with part Northern Spys, part Wagner, part Baldwin and perhaps a dozen different
sorts. In the neighborhood of New
Denver the Wagner is at present the
leading sort of winter apple that is
planted, and everybody admits that it
is one of the very best eorts. It is
hardy and a good grower; it bears early
and the fruit is magnificent in appearance, in flavor and keeping qualities.
The thrifty condition of the trees in
Mr. Williamson's and Mr. Aylard's
orchards prove that the variety does
well here, and that other growers will
make no mistake if they also plant
many Wagners.
Among late fall apples the Wealthy
rightly holds one of the first places. It
is also an early bearer and a heavy
bearer, and I find the trees are easy to
prune into a good shape. This variety
also has been planted extensively in
this neighborhood and well deserves a
place in our orchards.
The Kaslo fruit growers have made a
specialty of the Giavenstein, whicli
they claim to produce in great perfection, and even lo bu able to keep until
far into the winter. It is a most beautiful apple, of the very finest quality,
and most popular in the market. But
it ii a very delicate apple to handle, it
brui.es remarkably easy, and will require very great care in picking and
packing. However, for those who succeed in placing perfect Gravenstein
apples in the pink of condition on the
market ttiere will be all the greater reward.
There will be a big opening for experienced packers of fruit in B.C. ina
few years, when the millions of fruit
trees now planted come into bearing,
and it will be well for some of our rising
generation to bear thia in mind when
they are thinking of choosing tlieir life
work. A first-rate fruit packer need
never be out of work, for his employers
will recognize it is to their advantage
to retain him at other work even when
there is no fruit to be handled, so as to
be aure of having him ready for the
fruit Beason. J. C. HARRIS.

Madge her schoolmates called her,
because the name suited her, they
said; but Maddy they called her at
home, and there was a world of unutterable tenderness in the- voices of
the old couple, her grandparents,
when they sain that name, while their
dim eyes lighted up with pride and
joy when they rested upon the young
girl who answered to the name of
Maddy. Their only daughter's only
child, she had lived with them since
her mother's death, for her father
was a sea captain, who never returned from his last voyage to China,
made two months before she wns
born. Very lonely and desolate would
the home of Grandfather Markhain
have been without tho presence of
Madeline, but with her there, the old
red farmhouse seemed to the aged
couple like a paradise.
Forty years they had lived there,
tilling the rather barren soil of the
rocky homestead, and, saving the sad
night when they henrd that Richard
Clyde was lost at sea, and the far
sadder morning when their daughter
died, bitter sorrow had not come to
them; and, truly thankful for the
blessings so long vouchsafed them,
they had retired each night in pence
with God and man, and risen each
morning to pray. Hut a change was
coming over them. In an evil hour
Grandpa Markham bad signed a note
for a neighbor and friend, who failed
to pay, and so it all fell on Mr. Mark-
ham, who, to meet the demand, mortgaged his homestead; the recreant
neighbor still insisting that long before the mortgage should be due, he
certainly would be able himself to
meet it. This, however, he had not
done, and, after twice begging off a
foreclosure, poor old Grandfnthei
Markham found himself nt the mercy
of a grasping remorseless man, into
whose hands the* mortgage hud passed. It was vnin to hope that Silas
Slocum would wait. The money must
either be forthcoming, or tbe red
farmhouse be sold, witb its few acres
of land. Among his neighbors there
was not one who had the money to
spare, even if he hnd heen willing
to do so. And so be must look among
"If I could only help," Madeline
had said one evening when they sat
talking over their troubles; "bul
there's nothing I can do, unless I apply for our school this summer. Mr.
Green is committeeman; he likes us
and I don't believe but what he'll let
me have it. I mean to go and see;"
and, ere the old people hnd recovered from their astonishment, Mndeline
had caught her bonnet and shawl,
and was flying down the rond.
Madeline was n favorite with all, especially with Mr. Green, and as the
school would be small that summer,
the plan struck him favorably. Her
age, however, was an objection, and
he must take time to see what others
thought of a child like her becoming
a schoolmistress Others thought well
of it, and so before the close of the
next day it was generally known
through Honedale, as the southern
part of Devonshire was called, that
pretty little Madge Clyde had been
engaged as teacher, she receiving
three dollars a week, with the understanding that she must board herself*.
It did not take Madeline long to calculate that twelve times three were
thirty-six, more than a tenth of what
her grandfather must borrow. It
seemed like a little fortune, and blithe
as a singing bird she flitted about the
house, now stopping a moment to
fondle her pet kitten, while she whispered the good news in its very appreciative ear, and then stroking her
grandfather's silvery hair, as she
said i
"You can tell them that you are
sure of paying thirty six dollars in
the fall, and if I do well, maybe
they'll hire nie longer. I mean to try
my very best. 1 wonder if ever any-

they were only fourteen and a half.
Do I look as young as that?" and for
an instant the bright, childish face
Bcanncd itself eagerly in the old-
fashioned mirror, with the figure of
an eagle on the top.
She did look very young, and yet
there was something womanly, too,
in the expression of the fnce, soins-
thing which said that life's realities
were already beginning to be under

"If my hair were not short I should
do better. What a pity I cut it the
last time; it would have been so long
and splendid now," she continued,
giving a kind nf contemptuous pull
at the thick, beautiful brown hair on
���whose glossy surface there wns in
certain lights n reddish tinge which
added to its  beuuty.
"Never mind Hie hnir, Maddy," the
old  mnn  said,  gazing  fondly  nt   bet
with a hall sigh as he remembered
another brown bend, pillowed now he
neath-the graveyard turf. "Maybe you
won't pass muster, and then the hair
will make no difference. There's a
new committeeman, that Dr. Holbrook from Boston, and new ones are
apt to be mighty strict."
Instantly Maddy's fnce flushed all
over with nervous dread, as she
thought: "What if I should fail?"
fancying thnt to do so would be an
eternal disgrace. But she should not.
She was called by everybody the very
'best scholar in school, the one whom
the teachers always put forward when
desirous of showing off, the one whom
Mr. Tiverton, and Squire Lamb, and
Lawyer Whittemore always noticed so
much. Of course she should not fail,
though she did dread Dr. Holbrook,
wondering much what he would ask
her first, and hoping it would be
something in arithmetic, provided he
did not stumble upon decimals, where
she was apt to got bewildered. She
had no fears of grammar. She could
-pick out the most obscure sentence
and dissect a double relative with
perfect ease; then, as to geography,
:she could repeat whole pages of. that,
while in the spelling-book, the foundation of a thorough education, a*.

He could hardly tell why he had
thought of applying to Guy Remington for help, unless it were that he
once had saved the life of Guy's father, who, as long as he lived, had
evinced a great regard for his benefactor, frequently asserting that he
meant to do something for him. But
the something was never done, the
father was dead, and in his strait the
old mini turned to the son, whom he
knew to be very rich, and who he
hnd been told was exceedingly generous.
"How I wish I could go with you
clear up to Aikenside! Tliey say it's
so beautiful," Mndeline had said, as
on Saturday evening tbey sat discussing the expected events of the following Monday. "Mrs. Nonh, the housekeeper, had Sarah Jones (here once,
to sew, and she told me all about it.

are like doors, with lace curtains; but
what is queerest of all, the chairs nnd
sofas are covered with real silk, just
like thnt funny, gored gown of grandma's up in the oak chest. Dear me' I
wonder if I'll ever live in such a
plnce as Aikenside?"
"No, no, Maddy, no. Be satisfied
with the lot where Ood hns put you,
and don't be longing nfter something
higher. Our Fnther in heaven knows
just what is best for us; as He didn't
see fit to put you up at Aikenside,
'tain't noways likely you'll ever live
in the like of it."
"Not unless I should happen to
marry a rich man. Poor girls like me
have sometimes done that, haven't
they?" was Maddy's demure reply.
Grandpa Markham shook his head.
"They have, but it's mostly theii
ruination; so don't build castles in
the air about this Guy Remington."
"Me! Oh, grandpa, I never dreamed of Mr. Guy!" and Madeline blushed half indignantly. "He's too rich,
too aristocratic, though Sarah said he
didn't act one bit proud, and wa*-
so pleasant, tbe servants all worship
him, and Mrs. Noah thinks him good
enough for the Queen of England. I
shall think so, too, if he lets you
have the money. How I wish it was
Monday night, so we could know
"Perhaps we both shall be terribly
disappointed," suggested grandpa,
but Maddy wns more hopeful.
She, nt least, would not fail, while
whnt she had henrd of Guy Remington, the heir of Aikenside, made her
believe that he would accede at once
to  her grandpa's  request.
All that night she was working to
pay the debt, giving the money herself into the hands of Guy Remington, whom she hnd never seen, but
who came up in her dreams the tall,
handsome-looking man she had so
often henrd described by Sarah Jones
after her return (rom Aikenside. Even
the next dny, when by her grandparent's side, Muddy knelt reverent
ly in thc small, timeworn church nt
Honednle, her thoughts, it must be
confessed, were wandering more to
the to-morrow and Aikenside, than to
the snered words her lips were uttering. She knew it wns wrong, and with
a nervous start would try to bring bei
mind buck from decimal fractions to
what, the ministei was saying; but
Maddy was moitil, and right in the
midst of the Collect, Aikenside and
its owner would rise before her, together with the wonder how she and
her grandfather would feel one week
from that Sabbnth day. Would the de-
Mred certilicate be hers? or would she
be disgraced for ever and ever by a
rejection? Would the mortgage, be
paid nnd her grandfather at ease, or
would his beait he breaking with the
knowing he must leave what had been
his home for so many years? Not
thus was it with the aged disciple
beside her���the good old man, whose
white locks swept the large-lettered
book over which his wrinkled face was
bent, as he joined in the responses,
or said the prayers whose words hnd
over him so soothing an influence,
carrying his thoughts upward to the
house not made with hands, which
he felt assured would one day be his.
Once or twice, it is true, thoughts ol
losing the dear old red cottage flitted
across his mind with a keen, sudden
pang, but he put it quickly aside, remembering at the snme instant bow
the Father he loved dneth all things
Well   to  such   *i*   are   His    children.

lid wish she might just look over the

memory, or see exactly how the rule
for extracting the cube root did read,
hut Mnddy forbore, rending only the
I'ilerim's Progress, ihe Bible, and tbe
book brought from tbe Sunday school.
With the earliest dawn, however,
���die was up, nnd her grandmother
hoard her repeating to herself much
of whnt she dreaded Dr. Holbrook
���night question hei upon. F.ven when
bending over the wnshtub, for there
were, no servants at the red cottage,
a bonk was arranged before her, so
"bnt she could study with her eyes,
while her smnll. fnt hands and dimp-
'ed arms were busy in the suds. Before ten o'clock ever/thing wns done,
'be clothes, white ns the snowdrops in

for dinner, nnd then Maddy's work
wns finished 'Ornndnin eoiild do all

free "to put hor eyes out over them

Swiftly flew ijip hours until it wns

not a matter with which the doctor
need trouble himself; and somewhat
at ease on that point, Madeline donned her longest frock, and, standing
on a chair, tried to discover how much
of her pantalets was visible.
"I could see splendidly in Mr. Remington's mirrors," she said to herself,
with a half-sigh of regret that her lot
had not been cast in some such place
as Aikenside, instead of there beneath
the hill in that wee bit of a cottage
whose rear skinted back until it almost touched the ground. "After all,
I guess I'm happier here," she
thought. "Everybody likes me, while
if I were Mr. Guy's sister and lived
at Aikenside, I might be proud and
wicked, and "
She did not finish the sentence, but .
somehow the story of Dives and Lazar- j
us, read by her grandfather that
morning, recurred to her mind, and
feeling how much rather she would
rest in Abraham's bosom than share
the fate of him who once was clothed
ir, purple and fine linen, she pirtned
on her little nent plaid shawl, and,
tying the blue ribbons of her coarse
straw hnt, glnnced once more at the
formidable cube root, and then hurried down to where her grandfather
nnd old Sorrel  were waiting for her.
"T shnll be so happy when I come
back, because it will then be over,
just like bnvlng a tooth out, you
know," she said to ber grandmother,
who bent down for the good-by kiss
without which Mnddy never left her.
"Now, grandpa, drive on; I was to be
there nt three." nnd chirruping herself to Sorrel, the impatient Madge
went riding from the cottage door,
chatting chnerily until the villnge of

Balmoral.    It is well known that thc
King has not the same regard for hit-
Highland   home  as   bad   Queen  Vic*-

expectations   that   he   will   sell   the

with  only  a  small    number  of  servants.    Some time ago the King was
credited with the intention of turning
the place into a sanitorium, but it is

These come suddenly and without

Dr. Chase's Nerve FcoJ.
The digestive system is a wonderful piece of machinery, but power is

In this cuse the power is the nerve
force contained in the body, nnd if
the nerve force is lacking the digestive system becomes crippled, and
there is suffering from indigestion,
nervous headaches, neuralgic pains,
dizzy spells, wenkness and discouragement.
Strength cannot be regained from
the food you ent so long as digestion
is so imperfect, but you can be restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
which contains in condensed pill form
the very elements of nature which po
to for**) new nerve force.
Overwork, worry, anxiety and excessive mental effort exhaust the nervous system at a tremendous rate,
und repair must be made before some
dreadful form of nervous disease sets
in. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food invigorates the nerves which control the di
pest ive lluids, shurpeiis the appetite
is slightly luxntive, so as to encourage the action of the bowels and
strengthens every organ of the body.
You can use this treatment feeling

I regard a sen *e of humor as one of

renders liim Indifferent to good or bad
fortune. It euables bim to enjoy his
own discomfiture.
Blessed with this sense ne is never
unduly elated or cast down. No one
can ruffle his temper. No abuse disturbs his equanimity. Bores do not
bore him. Humbugs do not humbug
him. Solemn airs do not Impose on
him. Sentimental gush does not Influence him. The follies of the moment
have no hold on him. Titles and decorations are but childish baubles In
his eyes. Prejudice does not warp
his judgment, fie Is never in conceit
ir out of conceit with himself. He
abhors all dogmatism. The world Is a
stage on which actors strut and fret
for his edification and amusement, and
he pursues the even current of his
way. Invulnerable, doing what Is right
and proper according to his lights, but
utterly Indifferent whether what he
does finds approval or disapproval

Story of  How  Beethoven  Created  His
Wonderful Sonata. .
Beethoven's famous composition, the
"Moonlight Sonata," Is said to have
been composed under the following circumstances:
One evening as Beethoven and a
friend were hurrying through the
streets of Bonn they beard the familiar notes of the "Sonata In I*'." Some
thing ln tbe musician's touch attracted
the attention of Beethoven, and he
stopped and listened. Suddenly the
music stopped, and the despairing
words of the musician came to them
through the open window, "Oh, if 1
could but hear some really good musician play this wonderful piece!" aud
the words ended In a sob.
"Let us go In," said Beetboven. They
entered aud found the player a young
girl, poor and blind. Beethoven sat
down at the old harpsichord and played as he hud never played before. His
listeners were spellbound. "Tell us,"
they begged, "who are you?" For answer he played the opening bars in the
"Sonata In V." "It Is Beethoven!"
they exclaimed In awe and admiration.
Suddenly the candle flickered aud
went out. Beethoven ceased playing
and bowed bis head upon his band.
His friend threw open the shutters. A
flood of beautiful moonlight entered
the room. Its transfiguring light touched up the poor old Instrument and rested upon the noble figure bowed before
It The profound silence was broken
at last by the musician, who snld: "Listen. I will Improvise a sonata to the
moonlight." Then was crented this wonderful sonata, beginning In a sad, ten
der movement, the embodiment In
sound of the gentle moonlight transfiguring and glorifying the dark earth.
Suddenly the music ceased, and with
a brief farewell Beethoven hurried
home to put upon paper this famous

A   Bit   of   Business    Enterprise   That
Was  Not  Appreciated.
A story of the delightfully effective
turning of the human worm comes
from the Chicago Record-Herald. For
several weeks Raymond bad been the
only tenant of his house. Mrs. Raymond and the children were waiting
lu the south for the weather to settle.
Late one evening, when Raymond was
ln his bathtub, be beard somebody
ringing the front door bell.
He decided not to pay any attention
to It. The person who was doing tbe
ringing would presently get the Idea
that nobody was at home and go
But the ringing continued. Raymond went on scrubbing bis back
with the long handled brush and rubbing soap over himself and hoping
that the Individual who was ringing
the bell might be good enough to quit
before the battery was exhausted or
the wires were worn out. At last,
when he could stand It no longer, he
got out of the water, put on a bath
robe and went to the front window,
from which he was able to see who
was at the door.
ne beheld a telegraph messenger
and at once begun to feel queer ln the

happened to his wife or one of tbe
"Be down In a minute!" he called
to tbe boy, and he was as good as his
word. He did not wait to put on any
more clothes. He even forgot tbat he
wos barefooted.
When he had opened the door the
boy handed hlm what looked like a
telegram, but was, In fact, only a clever imitation of one. He tore open the
envelope and read this message:
Dear Sir���Have you examined our ten
dollar overcoats? IC not, you Bhould do
so at once.   They will Interest you.
Clothier and Haberdasher.
The boy. who wore a uniform like
'hat of a telegraph messenger, departed while Raymond was reading
the advertisement, and thus probably
saved himself from being personally
Raymond was angry. He threw the
piece of paper on the floor and
stamped bis heel on It; but, being
barefooted, he hurt his heel more than
be did thc advertisement. This did
not Improve his temper.
His nnger Increased as the moments
passed. When he went to bed he
was ln a fighting mood. He wondered If It might not be possible to prosecute a man who counterfeited telegraph blanks for the purpose of deceiving people. He tossed about, nursing bis auger against Dashlngton and
vowing that he would go naked
through the streets rather than buy
so much as a necktie at the Dashing-
ton store. Finally, at about 2 o'clock
in tbe morning, a bappy thought
struck him.
He bopped out of bed, went to the
telephone, found Dashlngton's house
number nud called for it Reasonably
soon somebody sleepily asked what
was wanted.
"Is this Mr. Dashlngton's residence?"
"I should like to speak to hlm."
"He can't be disturbed at this time
of nlgbt.   Call In the morning."
"No; I must speak to him now."
""Won'l you give me your message?"
"No; I must speak to him personally."
"But do you realize what time It Is?"
"Yes, but I am very anxious to
speak to him at once. Please call him
to the telephone nt once."
After a long time another sleepy

Marching Geese.
Norfolk geese were driven up to London ln thousands without losing condition. It paid better before the days
of railways to let the geese transport
themselve.-!. The largest drove mentioned was one of 9,000, which went
from Suffolk, through Chelmsford and
on to London. Tliey took their journey
easily, marching ten miles a day. The
ordinary day's march of the German
army ls thirteen miles, only three miles
better tban the Reese. When Lord Oxford bet the Marquis of Queensberry
that a drove of Suffolk geese would
beat an equal number of turkeys In a
walk to London the geese won by forty-eight hours.���Cornish's "Animal Artisans."

"Tobacco," said a tobacconist, "Is one
of many herbs that are smoked. In the
orient, for Instance, bhang or cannabis, a drug that gives one tbe desire to
caress people's feet, goes into loads of
pipes. Some savages smoke tbe leaves
of the wild potato and thc wild tomato.
Tiiese bitter leaves are narcotic. They
throw you Into a pleasant stupor. Pursued In, though, they bring Insanity.
Some of tho Swiss guides smoke
'mountain tobacco,' a weed that grows
only at great heights. This stuff produces an Intoxication akin to alcohol's.

leaves of 'Indian tobacco,' which every

Primeval  Simplicity   of   Filipinos   at
National Exhibition.
Side by side with the most highly
developed examples of modern civilization at the National Exhibition,
both in its human and mechanical
phases, there was shown at the Igor-
rote Village one of tbe most interesting and unique studies by way of contrast that could well be imagined.
The transition from the bewildering
array of scientific triumph to the
primeval simplicity of these children
of nature was really startling and nothing conld illustrate in a more effective manner what as enormous change
has been effected in the modes of living during the past few centuries.
Whether tbe change has been beneli-
cial is greatly doubted by many of the
thousands who witnessed the peaceful
life and the air of contentment that
surrounds these natives of Luzon as
the freedom from care and evident disregard of all the nerve-racking obligations of modern social life appeal
strongly to thos. who are oompelled
to participate in the latter-day strenuous contest  for existence.
The Igorrote village was located
at the entrance to the Midway, in the
most prominent location on tbe
grounds, a favor extended by the management on account of the wonderfully extensive interest taken in these
peculiar people. Within the walls
were to be found a large group of
the natives���men. Women and children
���who live in the grass-thatched
houses to be found in the Philippines.
On the right of the entrance was to
be seen a young woman who haa just
entered on the experiment of marriage. She has been taken on trial,
according to the custom of .the Igor-
rotes, and should the test result in
motherhood, she will be married with
a ceremony lasting several days.
Once permanently married there will
be no divorce, as there is no tradition
of any separation where a child has
Another interesting personality is
that of the first Bontoc Igorrote baby
to be brought to this country. His
name is Wai-yl, and he is now a little
more than two years old. He has
been in the coTlntry only a few
months, but is rapidly acquiring a
knowledge of English, and was quite
a pet with visitors. At times he parades in modern dress, but evidently
prefers the scanty raiment of his ancestors, and even takes delight in escaping from such restrictions and disporting in only-his beautiful bronze-
brown  complexion.
Scattered throughout the village,
working at forges and other forms of
employment,, were various members
of the group] engaged in their usual
daily tasks. In the centre of the village the entire population participated in war dances and other tribal
ceremonies, such as spear-throwing
Premier Bond Opposes Clause of tha
State Department'advices received
at Washington from London, where
Ambassador Reid is conducting directly with thc British Foreign Office
negotiations looking to the adjustment
of the Newfoundland fisheries question, indicate that the main obstacle
to a complete agreement lies in the
opposition of Sir Robert Bond, thc
Newfoundland Premier, to the renewal of that paragraph of the modus Vivendi of last season which legalizes
the enlistment of Newfoundland fishermen as members of the crews of
American fishing smacks. It iB assumed that the Premier's objection is
based not so much upon the actual
employment of these shore fishermen
at lucrative wages on American fishing vessels, a matter of pecuniary loss
to the colony, but rather from an unwillingness to admit, even in a modus
vivendi, that a colonial law, such as
prohibits their employment in this
manner, may not invalidate the treaty
provision to the contrary. A number
of alternative propositions have been
advanced from the Newfoundland
side, but meanwhile, failing an agreement on a modus vivendi in Newfoundland, it is the understanding
that a truce will prevail, by the terms
of which American fishermen will
continue to ply their vocation on the
coast of Newfoundland, according to
the terms of the agreement of last

Britain on Opium
Sir John Jordan, the British minister to China, has sent a memorial to
the Chinese Board of Foreign Affairs offering to reduce the importu-
tation of Indian opium 10 per cent
in three years as an experiment, and
nlso to increase the duty if the native drug is equally  taxed.
He further proposes to close all the
places at which opium is sold in tlu-

From early spring until IUb departure
Irom Sandon a month ago, mystery has
shrouded the personelle of a gentleman
whose courtly manner and bearing bus
won for bim the admiration oi all, and
his mission in Sandon ulso excited the
curiosity of noi a few. True his continental style of dancing did not exactly
jibe with ouis, nor did he practise
the art of making lovo in our matter of-
fact gawky style] in the former he was
as graceful as a gyroscope and in the
latter as gallant as a courtier of the
Elizabethan age. Arriving in Sandon
with a goodly array of guns, trunks,
books and cameras, the gossips who nt
least had expected him to buy up the
Rambler or the Slocan Star, rtcaved a
���shock when they learned he had accepted the humblest position obtainable in
a local mine, whicli in his own language
was that of a " Po-ah Muck-ah." He
Wis ever a gentleman, and he quickly
became the idol of the marriageable
belles and the admiration of the men���
with perhaps one exception. When he
departed from our lives as a dream���as
lie came, he went���all regretted the absence of the mysterious stranger.
Whilst scanning the personal column
of a widely read mining magazine the
other day we came across the fallowing
item bearing on tlie mystery :

lately completed a tour through the
Kootenay and Boumhuy mining districts. He was reported to be representing Italian capitalists desirous of obtaining suitable miningfju'operties in
