Report of W. I log-alls Is
Of Special Value to intending: Investors.
The following is the continuation of
the report published in these cilumn
last week of Walter Renton Ingalls on
the Slocan 8tar"mine:
Passing easterly from the sicond
winze on No. 4, I found 150 feet of
practically barren vein. Quartz lenzes
OOOUr at interval; and sometimes also
a little siderite, but these cross the
strike of the vein at acute angles and
appear to terminate at the main walls.
At other points the vein is merely a 6
inch gouge [of crushed black sla'e.
Succeeding this barren stretch ol 150
feet there follows 100 feet of very good
vein, mostly, however, siderite alternating with zinc blende.   Samples No.
21 assayed: silver 1.6 ozs., lead 0.8 per
cent, zinc SI p. c. No22: 2.3 ozs., lead
1.8 p.c , zinc 88.5 p.c. No 28: silver
1.1 oz., zinc S9.2 p.c. No. 24; silver
1.4 oz., zinc 20.5 p c.   The level extends
22 feet beyond this lens and ends in
barren ground, the vein being again
reduced to about 10 inches of crushed
black slate and gouge.
The siilerilc lens previously described
consists in part of seams crossing the
general strike of the vein at an acute
angle and terminating at the wal's; tlie
last seen of this lens in at a point 22
feet from the face, where it crosses
towards the footwall, along which it
probab'y continue?, the drift having
probably followed the hanging wall.
No. 5 level eat>t passes below this
ground at* depth of 135 feet verlical,
and shows tideri'c in several places and
also some zinc. The vein on No 5 east
is very irregular and wavy, thedrifi
very crooked. The vein probably averages about 4 feet in thickness and con
tains much more quartz than on the
level above, but not nearly as much
s;derite as in No. 4. east. At about
500 leet east of the main crosscut a
raise shows 4 feet of siderite and zinc
blende with a slight sprinkling of galena
and again at 400 feet east of No. 6
cross-cut there is a cut in the hanging
wall showing 4 feet of siderite and a
littlei blende.
In two places along this drift small
stopes were started, but the vein did
not open out above the level, and above
all, the mineral that they were looking
for, galena, did not occur in a profit"
able quantity, but much of this ground
will, I believe, when opened up, produce milling ore when zinc can lie
mined and mi.led at a profit. I did not
however, at any place on this level see
as good a run of either siderite or blende
as on the No. 4 level. At one point a
porphyry dike shoes s in the hanging and
below it a stream of water issues. The
vein immediately under the dike is
chiefly quartz, carrying a little galena
and some fragments ot blende with some
siderito. It looked to me a good prospect to sink on.
Going westerly on No. 5 the vein has
been stop.d in the roof continuously,
and in one place passes through a smal
dike and contains there about 20 inches
of blende wilh a little siderite. The
slopes increase in height as they reach
the main winze (shaftj sunk below this
No. 5 level, and the vein at this point
is very wide as will hereafter be shown.
Immediately west of the shaft the vein
follows close to the main stock, previously described, but the pay streak is
very narrow. At about 1,000 feet west
of the shaft, what is called the main
vein is again picked up and opened for
a length of 850 feet, about 100 feet of
which ia in pay ore. Sample No. 26
was taken from a stope where the ore
showed a beautiful ribbon structure of
blende and quartz with galena and a
little siderate, 8 feet wide. It assayed:
silver 18.5 czs., lead 0.7 p.c, zinc 23.9
per cent. Sample No. 27 was taken
from the same Silversmith stope, 80
feet east ot the latter, and for a widih
of 4 feet. At this point about 4 inches
of galena occurs on the hanging wall as
well as some little galena disseminated
throughout the vein. The sample assayed : silver 50.8 ozs., lead 0.6 p.c. zinc .
19 p.c.   This very fine stope produced |
the bulk of lhe rich silver zinc concentrates shipped in 1904.
In the main winze below No. 5. level
the west end shows a magnificent vein
averaging 12 feet between the 5th and
6th levels. The pay streak is mostly
galena. I sampled A% feet. Sample
No. 30 on the footwall side assayed:
silver 111.9 oz*., lead 78p.c, zinc 3 p.c.
About 25 feet below No. 5 level there
was another 18 inches of galena toward
the hanging, but this was inaccessible
for sampling. The vein filling between
these streaks is quartz and slate with a
little blende. About 6 feet has been
stoped west of the shaft on this splendid
ore lens, while a stope opening on the
east side, about midway between levels
shows 7 feet of quartz and blende, a
brecciated vein, mostly quartz with
puces of slate, fragments of zinc blende
and a sprinkling ol galena throughout
the mass, and about 4 inches of galena
on the hanging wall. Sample No. 28
was taken across this slope, width 7
feet. It assayed: silver 12 ozs., lead
4 4 p.c, zinc 18.9 p.c. This lens appears
to have its greatest widlh .it the winze
and is of short length probably not exceeding 80 feet.
No. 6 level extending west of the
winze on the course of this lens I was
not shown, while easterly on No 6 level
the ore lens has practically disappeared
30 feet from the shaft. The vein, however continues 8 or 10 feet wide in a
very irregular country, containing several small d'kes, though small bunches
of siderite, blende and galena occur at
intervals in the vein. At one place the
vein appears to fork and was followed
southerly for tome distance, where it
turned and almost resumed its normal
course*. The main drift continuing
through lhe dikes finally reached a distance of 400 feet from the shaft where I
took sample No, 29, on September 19,
fiom 12 inches ot galena and blende in
a quartz gangue; it assayed : silver 11.5
oza., lead 28.9 p c, zinc 18pc, iron
7.4 p.c , insoluble S6.1p.c. This ore ia
just coming in, the pay streak's about
18 inches wltlo, and the ground very
loose and extremely woe. There is considerable development of iron pyrites
in tlie vein at this, the deepest point in
the mine; a lit tie yellow copper ore can
also be noticed in specks associated with
the quartz and galena.
In the upper portions of the mine,
the galena, and sometimes the blende,
contains a little chalcopyrite, but more
often gray coppir, particularly where
the silver value is high. It would ap
pear that on the 6th level copper ore
occurs almost exclusively in the lorm
of chalcopyrite. It is probably that tha
southern vein will soon fall into the
main vein and include between them
one of the slate horses which form so
prominent a feature in this mine.
The sixth level is opened about 625
feet vertical below the outcrop of the
vein at thu highest point on the mountain, and there occurs on and above
this level probably as rich a bunch of
silver-lead as has been found anywhere
in tlie mine. The blende also occurs in
this lens at the m-.in winze of normal
character and composition Consequently, it cannot be at least claimed that
the vein at its deepest point, takim. the
mine as a whole, carries ore of normal
rii'hneaa and composition; In other
words there is no falling off in values
wilh depih. There follows, however,
the matter of quitntity of mineral in the
vein and under thin head the showing
on No. 4 tunnel east ia very fair, the
development of siderite alone beirg abnormal; while on the 5th level, east of
the main crosscut the vein on the
whole is poor," but with a market for
zinc would in several places, pay to
mine, and there ia a strong probability
that bunches of good lead oro would be
foimd in atoping and possibly some ten
(-es of normal richness; and if io, the
w hole vein could be profitably sloped.
Siderite occurs everywhere in the vein,
from the outcrop to the lowest depth
Studying the mine sectionally we can
roughly divide the ore deposits into a
central or main shoot, an east and a
west ore shoot. The central ore shoot
is by far the largest of ihe three, and
curries pay ore continuously from the
outcrop to the 6th level.
The east ore shoot has an easterly
pitch in the vein, develops massive
siderite aa vein filling on the 4th level
and ia poor on the 4th level, quartz predominating.
The west ore shoot haa a westerly
pitch in tbe vein, but owing to the
shape of the hill the 5th level cuts it at
much lesa depth from aurfAce than the
eastern thoot ii explored. The western
shoot continued strong on and below the
6th level, weat of the granitic intrusion,
and will probably carry down pay ore
below the 6th level, and In the wider
portions of the vein perhaps to much
greater depths.
I had arranged for a number of ill us
tral ions to show clearly the ore occurence in the Slocan Star vein, including
a plan of No. 5 level, and several sec
tions across the vein, which is really
one of tlie most interesting, and probably the largest developed vein in the
Slocan. At the last moment, however,
the manager refused to have any data
whatever taken from the working plans,
and hence I have been compelled to
describe briefly this interesting mine
without the aid of illustrations, so essential to a proper understanding of the
great vein and its ore shoots.
It must be remarked however, that
the owners of the Slocan Star have
been in ligitation over that nightmare
"Apex rights," which I had heretofore
believed waa an expensive uncertainty
confined exclusively, to United States
mining practice.
A Rich Strike at The
Rabbit Paw.
We learn from unofficial sources that
a strike of three feet ot high-grade ore
has been made at the Rabbit Paw in
"C " tunnel. This tunnel was ordered
to be driven by the judges in tbo last
Harris-White case in an easterly dil'ic-
lion to discover the ore body claimed to
exist there by Harris. If this report ie
correct, it means that taken into conjunction with the work done at "A"
and "B " points to determine tbe continuance of the black fisfure, that Mr.
Harris has gained every point iu the
Our reporter called on Mr. Harris on
Saturday, but he remarked with a
smile that he had nothing to give. We
drew Mr. Harris out to tha extent of
him saying that the work almost completed was fruitful of 100 percent btlor
results than his fondest dreams, and
that the work done could not have been
better for him.
A well-known official of the Byron N.
White Company, contradicted the report of the strike to our representative,
but we have been "nosing," and we
wish, without incriminating any of the
employes, to remark that truth never
hurts us, and that if we say there is
three fret of ore in, the tunnel���then
three feet goes.
There is three feet of fine looking oi e
It is Said That Joplin Mine
Owners Will Carry Case
To Supreme Court.
The lessees of the Queen Bess shipped
another car of galena ore this week.
Previous shipments to the smelter by
the lessees have netted 130 oza. silver
and 33 per cent lead to Ihe ton. Development work will be the feature for the
next few mouths as the lessees are
pretty well heeled as a result of recent
shipments. McMillan and McGilvray
are the lessees, and tliey have had two
other men at work.

The Slocan is the premier silver-lead
district of tha United Kingdom.
The Joplin mine-owners say " No,"
but the States smelters say : Wc WILL
have B. C. zinc ore. The appraisers
say: Quite right; go to it; off conies
the duty.
The Sandon camp has more zinc
mines with a vast tonnage on Bight than
any mining division iu Canada. If
they WILL have B. C. zinc, then
Sandon will be a humming hive of industry. There is no point in lhe world
which can at this time offer such inducements to capital. There are tie-
mendous deposits of zinc which enterprise will uncover. Sandon and zinc
will be names to conjure with during
the next five years. Prospecting for
zinc will prevail on an extensive scale
as soon as the snow die-appears from
the hills. There are many more Lucky

(Joplin Mo., Lead an Zinc News)
The result of the deliberations of the
board ot U.L. appraisers has sustained
the claim of the importers and smelters
oi zinc ores, ruling that carbonates and
silicates of zinc are clfssed as calamine,
thorefore free of duty, and that the sulphide is crude mineral and under provision of Par. 614, it also on the free list.
As both parties lo this long controversy are determined to win the contest
the case will doubtless be carried to the
U.S. supreme court, The case is one
of vital importance to over 400 zinc
mine owners of this district, and the
present ruling will rot be accepted as
final. Zinc producing interests induced
the treasury department to lew a 20 per
cent tax on some of the ores of zinc, alleging that smelters were importing ore-
froin Mexico aud Canada to the detri
nient of the American mines. Importers claim a shortage of American ores
necessitating importation to operate
smelttrs to full capacity.
Iu his decision for the board, sustaining the claims of the importers and
smelters, general appraiser Fischer says
in part:
"The questions of the three that we
have to consider are:
" First���Does tbe  term calamine, as
used ill paragraph 614 of the tariff,  ap
ply   exclusively to the  hyrous  silicate
of zinc, or does it cover  both   the silicates and both the  carbonates of zinc?
"Second���Dues the provision in paragraph 188 for 'Metallic mineral substances in a crude state,' cover zincores
or do they fall within the terms of paragraph 914 as 'Minoials, grinding", or by
other process of manufacture."
"A third question that incidently arises in the course of this controversy is as
to whether it is legal t ��� assess, under
the provisionof paragraph 181, the duty
on the had content of an ore ihat is
dutiable also under paragraph 188, but
as Ihe conclusion we have reached on
the general issue makes it unnecessary
to determine this point, we shall not
pass upon it."
The opinion, continuing, shows that
silicates and carbonates of zinc are generally recognised in trade of thiB country as "calamine."
"A number of witness's en behalf of
the government refuted this claim," it
continues, "and we are unable lo find
that there is any such uniform and general commercial understanding. Asthe
word is a scientific one, and is not familiarly used in ordinary speech it can
be scarcely said to have a "popular"
meaning, and hence the question nar_
rows down lo its scientific signification
and it is on this the determination of
the issue must i est. On th is point a
great mas* of testimony, both oral and
documentary, has been introduced by
both sides and it appears tlcielrom
that niinoralogists not only differ from
metallurgists as to the purview of the
term calamine, but they differ among
themselves. While according to the
testimony of professors Wheeler and
Day, Dana is the generally accepted
American authority on the nomenclature of zinc ores, and he holels that only
the hydrous silicate of zinc is regarded
properly as calamine, many other writers of authority applv tho carbonates
as well."   The opinion goes on :
"Prior to 1840, Dana, too, gave calamine the latter signification, and when
he, at tbat time, promulgated the distinction noted, he was followed and has
since been followed most generously,
but not universally, in this country.
It appears, too, that German and English mineralogists still adhire to the
practise that obtained to this country
pi ior to 1846, and that they have not
adopted Dana's system of nomenclature
Many publications introduced in evidence by the importers were objected to
by the government on tho ground that
they were foreign publications and that
congress is presumed to have enacted
the tariff law according to domestic understanding, but we boll that opinions*/
republished and circulated in this country, particularly those of a scientific
character, are just as likily to fall into
the hands of legislators as those wholly
of American origin. Even of the latter
class there are quite a number that support tlie contention sought to be established by the importers, namely calamine includes the carbonate as well as
the silicate of zinc."
"In view of the facts," Mr. Fischer
goes on, "that in many zinc ores as
found in nature, the silicate and carbonate are commingled, that they are
both of the same value, and are used
preeiecly for the same purpose, and that
zinc ore in no wheie provided for by
name it is no more than a conjecture
that congress, in legislating on the subject intended to cover by lhe provision
for calamine, both the carbonate and
silicate ol zinc. Calamine has been
mentioned by name in the free list in
every tariff act since 1702, except in the
tariffs of 1840 and 1857, where it was
made dutiable, but at no lime, and in
none of the many tarill" acts pu.-sed by
congress has zinc ore been provided for
by name. If any presumption arises at
all from these circumstances it is that
congress intended no duty on zinc ore
as such, rather than that by changing
the designation for 'lapsis calaminaris'
to calamine, a change which first appeared in the act of 1840, it was intended to charge certain kinds of zinc ore
with duty."
"We are of opinion that tbe decision of the circuit court of appeals of
the third circuit in Ilemste-d vs.Thomas is decisive, It was there held that
the provision in paragraph 183, quoted
above, applies only to that class ol mineral 6iibdtai.ee in which metal appears
in a free state, such as the ores of gold,
silver nnd copp.r ar.d iiot to mineral
substances In which metal qua metal
does not occur.
"Zinc as niclal does not appear in
the ores heie in question; tbey are
silicates and carbonates of zinc and
under the rule cited they are not metallic mineral substances. A process quite
an elaborate as Ihat described in Hem*
stead vs. Thomas, supra, is necessary in
order to extract the metal zinc from
these ores.
"It is urged that these ores are excluded from the provisions of paragraph
014 by reasou of ilia fact that as appears
fium tlie evidence,after being dug Irom
the mine the large pieces were crushed
by hand or machinery and the fragments
that contained no zincoie were till own
away. The object of this proceeding is
to avoid paying freight charges on rock
and dir . It has been held that while
nny labor bestowed on an article is a
process of manufacture the mere removal of foreign matter fioin Ihe product of
nature*, the elimination of rocks and
dirt from zinc ore, for instance, would
not operate to lako such ore out of par.
014, for it is still crude ore, not refined
ground, or manufactured. It is obvious
that It is just as crude for purpose* of
classification under paragraph 614 ai it
would be under paragraph 183."
The conclusion of the opinion is that
the carbonates and silicates of zinc are
included within ihe meaning of the
term calamine, and they are free of
duty, and that the sulphide of zinc is
free as crude inineiils, etc., subject,
however, to the qualification that when
lead is found iu theseores duty shall be
taken on the amount of lead contained
therein. The decision of the collector
in each  case  is   modified accordingly.

Famous Long Tunnel Now
Connected wltb
Another link in the chain of evidence
which will prove that deep mining pays
in the Slocan, was completed on Wednesday, when the upraise lo lhe long
tonne! at the Rambler Cariboo was torn*
pleted and the opera'- rs broke thtoiigh
into No. 8 tunnel. When within 15
feet ol lhe drill a hole was drilled and a
two-inch pine inserted. By this means
lhe level will be chained and the water
eairied away Ihiough the pipes. It
will be seen that there is still about IS
(eet ot work lo be clone before the famous development wink at the mine is
completed, but it it virtually concluded
and the extra m *n laid oft" until the
drift is drained. The provrrss of the
famous long tunnel of the Rambler-
Cariboo has been watched wilh keen interest hy the mining community of the
world, as its successful a-eumplishment
and the ultimate discovery of the lead
with values at depth will settle for all
ime the question of lhe stability of the
*locan. The work now aleotit completed
ias been supervised by one of the best
known and meat capable mining men in
the world, Mr. W. E Zwicky, Irom snr-
vey plana made by W. J. H. Holmes,
and tbe latter i-t being congratulated on
the accuracy of his de dictions. The
tunnel waB started with the object of
securing a vertical depth of 1,200 feet

600 feet, after which the (anions long
tunnel was begun which was finished last
August, but Ihe work of connecting to
the upper level wss still to be pushed,
mid this is thu work which ia now being
'reported concluded. It i�� claimed
that large nre bodies have been encjun*
tered dii'im* the deep level operations

"They tell me you are Baldos, a goat

him keenly.
"And you were hurt in defending one
who ia of much consequence in Grau-
i stark. Sit down, my good fellow." Baldos' eye gleamed coldly for an Instant;
I then he sank into a chair. "While admitting tbat you have done Graustark

Then a peculiar smile overspread bis

respectful humor wheu be returned to
the hall and stood In the presence of
the tall, flushed stranger with the ragged uniform.
A short, fierce little man In tbe picturesque uniform of a Graustark officer arose as Beverly entered the office.
His short beard bristled as though it
were concealing a smile, but his manner was polite, even deferential. She
advanced fearlessly toward him, a
wayward smile struggling into her

eyebrows contracting ever so slightly.
There was a shameless streak of dust
across her cheek, but there was also
a dimple there that uppeuled to the
grim old man. His eyes twinkled as

"You Uou't mean to say that the

"Oh, how Jolly!" cried she, her gray

"So far as I am concerned, Miss Calhoun, he shall always regard you as a

"Thank you. It's very nice of you

knocking at the door of tbe room. He
saluted bis superior and uttered a few
words In bis own language.
"Her royal hlghuess Is uwultlng you

, "Now, please, Baron Dangloss,"
pleaded Beverly at the door, "be nice

"If he will consent," said be quietly.
Beverly hurried Into the outer room
iiftcr giving the baron a smile he never

"It's all right," she said In low tones,
pausing for a moment beside bis chair
"Don't get up! Goodby. I'll come to

Almost Immediately Buldos was re
quested to preseut himself before Baron Dung-loss In the adjoining room.
Refusing to be carried In, he resolutely
strode through the door and stood before the grim old cuptaln of police, an
eusy, confident smile on his face.   Tbe
you that I at least know you to be
other than what you say. You are not
a goat hunter, and Baldos is not your
name. Am I not right?"
"You have had instructions from
your sovereign, Baron Dangloss. Did
they Include a command to cross question me?" asked Baldos haughtily.
Dangloss hesitated for a full minute.
"Tbey did uot I take tbe liberty of
Inquiring on my own responsibility."
"Very well, sir. Until you have a
right to question me, 1 am Baldos and
a goat hunter. I think I am here to receive surgical treatment."
"You decline to tell me anything concerning yourself?"
"'Only that I am injured and need relief."
"Perhaps I know more about you
than you suspect, sir."
"I am not in tbe least Interested,
Baron Dangloss, In what you know.
Tbe princess brought me into Ganlook,

ladies in the city, and her statement
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured
her of a very severe attack of indigestion will bring hope to similar
sufferers. Mrs. Jobin says; "About
a year ago I was seized with indigestion which had an alarming effect
upon my health. Day by day my
strength grew less. I suffered from
terrible headaches, dizziness, palpitation of the heart and sleeplessness.
I was in this condition for about six
months. I consulted two doctors
and although I followed their treatment carefully it did not help me in
the least. Last October, seeing that
instead of regaining my health I wns
growing worse, I decided to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. After I had
taken the second box there was a
change for the better, and after taking the pills for a month longth the
trouble entirely disappeared, and I
am again enjoying the best of
health. I have so much confidence in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that I always keep them in the house and
take them occasionally as a safe-
Just as surely as Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills cured Mrs. Jobin's indigestion they can cure all the other
ailments which come from bad

is the one thins they do���but they
do it well. In making this new rich

3as*s In Which Legality of Unions
With Foreigners and English-Speaking Girls Is Questioned.
Only too often do girls in English-
speaking countries in their ignorance
contract marriages with foreigners
with whom they have fallen in love,
and live to find that in the eyes of
their husband's countrymen# they
have, after all, not been wives at all.
It would be a difficult and a lengthy
task to arm the public and particularly the ignorant parent aud the unsuspecting girl against the dangers oi
these mixed marriages, says a correspondent of the London Express,
but in the space I have at my disposal I should like to point out the sal-
tent facts to be ascertained before
euch mixed marriages can be at all
reasonably safe. And first I may say
that generally all foreigners who
marry English girls in England can
only do so legally by the laws of
their country when they have first
complied with all the requirements of
their own country in the matter of an
intending marriage. And the chief of
these requirements are (1) that they
should publish in their country the
notices of such intending carriage as
required by law, and (2) that they
should obtain the consent of their
parents to the marriage if they are
under a certain age���which varies
from 21 to 30.
In Austria, after the intending
bridegroom or bride is 24 years of age,
no parental consent is necessary. But
if the man is in any way still connected with the military service he must
have the consent of the military authorities.
In Belgium the law allows a Belgian to marry a foreigner abroad according to the laws of that foreign
country, but the marriage will not be
valid in Belgium if he is under 21 and
has not obtained the consent of his
parents. If between the ages of 21 and
25 he must make a "respectful and
formal request" for his parents' advice, and if the parents object they
may apply to a court of justice and
state their grounds for refusal, and
such refusal may be upheld. If the
son or daughter be 25 years of age no
consent is required.
In Denmark any person contracting
a marriage, whether there or abroad,
requires the parental consent when
under the age of 25, and a widower
must not contract a second marriage
within three months of the death of
his wife
By the law of France no man may
contract a marriage under the age of
25 without the consent of his parents.
From that age until he is 30 he will
be required, as in Belgium, to perform
the "acte respectueux," and his act
differs from the Belgian in that he has
to perforin it three times over at
monthly interval-, and it is not until
a month has elapsed from the third
formal request that he will be allowed
to contract a valid marriage. Orphans
must not marry without the consent
of that Continental monstrosity, the
family council. In all cases of a
Frenchman marrying a foreigner
abroad the usual notifications must
be posted at the mairie of the commune in which he last had his abode.
In Germany consent of the father
is required until the son is 25 and the
daughter 24 years of age, and if either
is an orphan the consent of the legal
guardian is needed. The publication
of an intended marriage of a person
abroad must be made in the place
where he last dwelt in Germany two
weeks before the marriage and it must
also be made by advertisement in the
domicile of a foreigner, though in this
case a declaration from foreign local
authorities that no impediment exists
is accepted as an alternative. Any
person wishing to marry a second time
must show that a legal settlement has
been made on the children, if any, of
the first marriage.
By Italian law an Italian who marries a foreigner abroad in compliance
with the laws of the foreign country
is legally married, but here again it
is conditional on his also complying
with the requirements of the Italian
law. To marry without parental consent a man must exceed 25 and a
woman 21 years of age, and they must
publish the usual notices of the marriage in the commune in Italy, where
the Italian party was last domiciled.
In the Netherlands persons under
21 must not marry without the consent of the parents and between 21
and 25 they must perform the acte
respectueux to which I have referred.
Over 26 years of age neither consent
nor acte respectueux is required. In
Spain for civil marriage consent is required until the man is 23 and the
woman 25; in Sweden and Norway
consent is not necessary after 21, but
widowers must not re-marry until six
months after the death of their wives,
and if a man seduces a woman under
promise of marriage she is held to be
his legal wife.
In Russian law the marriage, if between a male Russian and a female
foreigner, must be celebrated in a
Russian church or by a Russian priest
and an undertaking must be given
that the children will be brought up
in the Russo-Greek faith; while in
Greece the law iB so unfriendly to
mixed marriages that I would advise
any young woman contemplating
marriage with a Greek to make him
become a naturalized Englishman
This, briefly, sums up the preliminaries which the Continental nations
desiderate before recognising a mixed
marriage. There are in addition Important considerations affeotng the
re-marriage of divorced persons, widowers and widows, and there are
many minor points which would need

Acute bronchitis is none other
than what is commonly known us
"cold on the chest" and is marked
by difficult breathing and tightness
or soreness of  the chest.
As a preventative Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed ..mi Turpentine
will, if taken in time, positively
prevent the symptoms of bronchitis
or cold  in  the  chest.
As a cure it will entirely overcome even the long-standing oases of
chronic bronchitis, .ind it should
not be forgotten that, when neglected, bronchitis usually returns time
and time again until the victim is
worn  out  by  its  debilitating  effects.
It is largely the extraordinary success of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as a cure for
bronchitis that has made this treatment so popular. People quite rightly reason that what will cure bronchitis will make short work of croup
ond ordinary coughs and colds.
Mrs.  Richmond  Withiow,  Shuben-
acadie, Hants Co., N.S., writes: "I
have used Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine with good success. My second daughter was troubled with bronchitis from the age of
three weeks. Oftentimes I thought
she would choke to death. The several remedies we got did not seem to
be of much use, but tbe first dose of
Dr. Chase's 8'yrnp of Linseed and
T.ufpeotine brought relief, and further
treatment made a thorough cure.
This trouble used to come back from
time to time, but, the cure is now
permanent. Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine has saved
us many doctor bills, and 1 would
not be without it in the house for
many times its. cost."

Exhibit   at   Christchurch   Exposition
���British Columbia  May   Have
Large Trade with Antipodes.
Vancouver, li. C.���That the exhibit oi British Columbia fruit displayed in the Canadian building at
the Christchurch, New Zealand, international exhibition is performing
the missionary w'ork intended is amply proved by the number of inquiries which have been received here
irom New Zealand. Mr. G. Earle,
ex-M.P.P., who is one of the best-
Unown fruit growers of British Columbia and whose exhibits at the
Royal Horticultural Society in London, England, received the silver
Knightiun medal two years running,
is in receipt of the following letter
irom Blake, Ness & Company, a leading fruit importing firm of Christchurch :
"At our New Zealand International Exhibition we have the privilege
of viewing and examining your exceedingly fine display of apples.
Without exception it is the cleanest
und finest collection of apples we
have ever seen, and although doubtless a well picked sample, it goes
to show the capabilities of British
Columbia in this respect.
"We are now convinced that a large
and lucrative trade could be fostered and worked up with New Zealand,
especially at this particular time of
the year, as ours is the opposite
season to yours, your fruit coming
in while we are working up lust season's stock. Our apples will not begin to come in much before March.
At present we are paying in Christ-
Church for inferior apples to yours
sixpence and eightpence per pound,
and this not on account of the exhibition, as we never get prime apples, say Stunners, at less than sixpence per pound, and nothing less
than fourpence. We are now referring to retail prices. We think your
apples would do well here, and if
sent in barrels, carefully packed,
would sell at a price remunerative
to the growers. Of course nothing
could be guaranteed, but this we
know: did circumstances permit,
tons of Canadian apples could be
sold by your commissioners in their
court at sixpence per pound."
The Papua Cannibals.
Dr. Rudolf Poech, of Vienna, who
recently returned from a trip in the
interest of science to New Guinea,
in describing the Papua cannibals,
said: "They are strong, well formed
people, but without a spark of culture of any kind. They are head
hunters, nnd suspicious. The decorations which they wear destroy
the shape of ears, nose and mouth,
and give their faces a repulsive appearance. The dance is everything
with them. Every emotion has its
expression in rhythmic motion. Religion, battle, victory, defeat, joy
and sorrow are all shown in the
dance. They are still in the stone
age and in an atmosphere which is
thousands of years behind ours."
Trade   Msn   For  Blankets.
To trade s man for a roll of blankets is a rather unusual proceeding,
ind tlie trade in which he figured as
the man is a never-to-be-forgotten
event in the life of William Jarman,
who is 86 years old, aud once was the
"King Dodo" of the Puget Sound In-
lians, says The Brockville Citizen.
That was 50 years ago, and "Blanket
Bill," as he is called to this day,
sxpects to reach the century mark
in yenrs.
"Blanket Bill" was a man-o'-warsc
man on board a British frigate that
sailed into Puget Sound, water a great
many years ago. With a party of other snilora he came ashore to trade
with the Indians. The party became
separated, and with a yell the fire-
eating aborigines set upon the main
body of the British tars. All reached
tho boat, but Jarman, who was captured and taken to the interior by
the Indians. He fully expected to
be scalped while the 'agots burned
about him, but ho made friends with
the chief, and soon found himself elevated to a high position among the
tribes.   Before him  everyone  bowed.
After several years Hudson Bay
traders heard that a white man waa
held in captivity among the Indiana,
and bartering with the red men, secured the British sailor upon the payment of a roll of blankets.
But Jarman went back to live among
the Indians. He married a squaw, or
probably a good many more than one.
"Blanket Bill" attributes bis long life
to a plunge into the sea every morning, and the avoidanoe of spirits ol
all kinds. A pipe is his only dissi-
untion, and he walks 11 miles into
Bellingham, State of Washington, every little_while JuBt lor exercise.

means of furrows, upon which whole

Finger Nails.
The growth of the average finger
nail is computed to be one-thirty-
second of an inch a week or a little
more than an inch and a half a
year. The finger nails, Popular Science SiftingB states, are said to grow
faster in the summer than in the
winter. The nail on the middle fin-
eer grows faster than any of the
other nails, and that on the thumb
grows slowest. It is also said that
the nails on the right hand grow
faster than those on the left hand.
According to the rate of growth
stated, the average time taken for
each finger nail to grow its full
length is about four and a half
months, and nt this rate a man seventy years old would have renewed
his nails one hundred and eighty-
six times. Taking the length of each

Saunders   Describes   Progress   of  Agriculture in Canada Before the
Committee  =t  Ottawa.
Ottawa. Out.���The progress of agriculture in Canada and the practical results obtained by the extension
of the experimental farm system
formed the subject of an address by
Professor Wm. Saunders, director of
government experimental farms, before the agricultural committee. As
an illustration of the growth and importance of experimental work Professor Saunders stated that in 1899
his correspondence amounted to
about eight thousand letters in the
course of the year, while for the past
seven years the average had been
68,797 letters. In 1887 the number
of seed samples distributed amounted to 1,149, while last year the total
was 43,885. Contrasting; the wheat
production of the various countries,
he pointed out that Great Britain
came first with 30.95 bushels to the
acre, and Germany second with 28,-
25 bushels. Canada was well up,
the average for Ontario being 18.92
bushels per acre. Manitoba 18.45 per
acre, and the Northwest 19.13 per
acre. Experiments with Canadian
Red Fife wheat in England had been
lately carried out, and proved remarkably successful. With regard
to spring wheats Professor Saunders
said that while goose wheat had
proved successful in certain localities, he could not advise Canadian
farmers to plant it generally. Referring to recent, experiments made
by Sir William Crookes with a view
of extracting by means of electricity
nitrogen from air, to be used as a
fertilizer, Professor Saunders said
that, when the scheme was perfected it would revolutionize agriculture.
At Niagara Falls an American company bad sunk a million dollars in
endeavoriiisr to establish an h.rlustry
on these lines, but the cost, of electricity was too hilh to allow the
project to be successful. It seemed
that if electricity could be produced
for this purpose at a cost of $4 per
horsepower the extraction of nitrogen froen tlie atmosphere and . the
production of nitrate of lime for fertilizing could be carried out profitably Tn Norway, where there were
many large water-powers, a company
had been established and was competing, he believed successfully, in the
supply of fertilizers. The matter
was an important one, as it had
been estimated that the world's supply of nitric soda would run out in
nineteen years, and it was necessary
that something should take its place.

..ie remainder of the -speech wa?
devoted to the proposed licensing
bill, the object of which is to diminish the drink evils, proposals for the
improvement of the army organization and Irish local government and
education questions, and minor measures. "On tne Irish question the
king said: "Your attention will be
called to a measure for further associating the people of Ireland wm,
the management of domestic affairs
and otherwise improving their system of government in its administrative and financial aspects. Proposals will also be submitted to you
for effecting a reform of university
education in Ireland, by which 1
trust that the difficulties which have
so long retarded higher education
in that country may  be removed."
Among the domestic legislation
foreshadowed was "A bill enabling
women to serve on local bodieB,'

the woman suffragists. Having
delivered this message, the king assisted the queen to risej* the procession was formed and returned to

It   Varle-a   Greatly   In   Different   Per-
soni   and  Conditions.
The pulse ot women generally beats
at a slightly faster rate than that of
men. It may be said that when a per
son Is at rest his pulse, that of any
adult, may be from seventy-five to
eighty times a minute. Great variation
exists In different individuals in respect of the number of beats. After
exercise the pulse quickens because of
the stimulation of the heart, and the
same result applies to the effects of
taking food. A dose of alcohol will also
stimulate the pulse somewhat, just us
the use of tobacco, especially in excess,
will tend to have an opposite effect-
namely, that of lowering the rate of
the pulse, because of the depression of
the heart which results. In fevers and
Inflammatory diseases tbe pulse rate
tends to be very much Increased and
ilso In respect of its character. Instead
if beating quietly the blood vessel lu
such cases exhibits a very full and
bounding movement. On the other
hand, where depression exists and tbe
temperature of tbe body falls, tbe
pulse may be unnaturally slow and Its
character weak. Physicians are accustomed to distinguish other characteristics In the pulse, such as become valuable hints In the discovery and determination of disease. The practical lesson we learn here Is that where the
pulse continues for any. length of time
to have Its beats quickened to an unnatural degree and where especially a
rise of the temperature or heat of the
body accompanies these symptoms we
ought to suspect some kind of feverish
condition or other to be represented.
Tbe pulse alone forms a valuable
enough guide to this state of tbe body,
but its value Is very much Increased If
to the Information given us by the
pulse we add that which the use of the
thermometer supplies.
The   I.mlii   and   Saxon   Terms   From
Which The- Are Derived.
Our names for each day are derived
from tbe Saxons, who probably borrowed the week from some eastern
people, substituting names of their
own divinities for those of tbe classical gods, as Is easily seen when tbe
names are tabulated:
Latin. Saxon. English.
Dies Soils Sun's day Sunday.
Dies Lunae Moon's day Monday.
Dies Martls Tlw's day Tuesday.
Dies Mercurlf.. Woden's day.. Wednesday.
Dies Jovls Thor's day.... Thursday.
Dies Veneris... Frlga's day... Friday.
Dies Batumi. ...Seterne's day. Saturday.
Among the ancients the belief In tbe
Influence of the planets upon the life
of men was so strong tbat many In selecting their daily ornaments would
wear only tbe gem associated with the
planet of the day. Thus on Sunday
ouly yellow gems and gold should
adorn tbe fingers. Pearls and white
stones, excepting diamonds, belonged
to the Moon day. Tuesday, day of Mars,
claimed rubles and all stones of fiery
luster. Thursday, Thor's day, demanded amethysts aud deep colored stoues
of sanguine tint, while Friday, dominated by Venus, reigned over tbe emerald, color of jealousy, which Is love's
shadow. Saturday, dedicated to Saturn, oldest of the gods, bad for Its
distinctive talisman tbe most splendid
of   all   gems,   the   diamond.
Bis Time For Drinking;.
In the days of river driving on tbe
Kennebec river In Maine old Uncle Jim
Gilbert was a well known character.
He wus hale and hearty and had an
enormous appetite. The men used to
come down the river with a drive of
logs and get a meal at a tavern in
Augusta. One morning, arriving late
and with appetite sharpened, old Uncle Jim sat down with the first set of
men and ate diligently during the time
these men made a meal. A. new set of
men came and still Uncle Joe ate
steadily. A third set came, and tbe
tavern keeper, becoming alarmed, tried
to hurry up the protracted meal by
saying, "Better drink your coffee, uncle, and have another cup!"
"No," said the old man. "I never
drink till I'm half through!"

A Procession of Worms Seen la Baa*
srury and Norway.
In some of tbe Hungarian forests
and in tbe pine woods of Norway there
exists a tiny, wormlike insect called
the sclara, of tbe genus tlpula. During the month of July or early In August tbey gather together In large
numbers, preparatory to migrating In
search of food or for change of condition. When Betting out on this Journey tbey stick themselves together by
means of some glutinous matter and
form a huge serpent like mass, often
reaching a length of between forty and
fifty feet and several Inches In thickness. As the sciara Is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an
inch In length, with no appreciable
breadth whatever, the number required
to compose a continuous line of tbe
size above mentioned Is almost incal
culable. Their pace Is, of course, very
slow, and upon meeting an obstacle,
sucb as a stick or stone, tbey will
either writhe over or around It, sometimes breaking luto two bodies for this
M. Guerln-Menevllle, a celebrated
French naturalist, said that If the rear
portion of this wonderful snakellke
procession be brought Into contact with
the front part and a sort of circle
formed the Insects will keep moving
round In that circle for hours without
apparently noticing tbat they are get

portions will reunite In a short time
The Norwegian peasants, when they
meet one'of these trains, will Iny some

it Is regarded as a good sign, but If It

A  Plea Thnt Is Respeeted by Almost
All Classes ot Men.
There Is au appeal tc/ which nearly
all classes of men give hoed���let ut
have fair play. You may address a
schoolful of mischievous boys on the
beauties of goodness, ou the evils ol
cruelty or harshness to tlieir fellows
and they will laugh at you. Exhortations to avoid any abstract evil oi
wroug and appeals to follow any abstract virtue will seem hazy to almost
any collection of ordinary, healthy and
lusty young boys, but If their sense of
fair play be addressed there is a read;
Oo among a crowd of wharfingers oi
longshoremen or the roughest and most
reckless sailors, wbo bave neithei
home nor principles of any sort, and
talk to them of the things of the head
or of the heart, and they will think
tbat you are a harmless but quite fu
tile specimen from cninkdom. Try to
awaken lu them a horror of the brutal
ity of their usual life, speak in moving
terms of the force and beauty of kindness or of virtue or of any attribute
of a polite and civilized society and
way of life, and you will be soliciting
tbe wind, talking to a statue, shouting
in the desert. But In the most uncouth
assemblage and In the vilest baunt In
lhe English speaking world mention
fair play and found your argument
nud your plea on that basis, and tbe
effect Is instant and eloquent.���Philadelphia Ledger.
Corned beef hash as made by Senator Hanua's cook was very popular
lu Washington several years ago.
Wheu the head waiter of tbe senate
restaurant wauted bash'prepared very
carefully he ordered It this way: "One
corned beef bash for Senator Hanna."
Oue duy when tlie restaurant was doing a heavy business almost everybody
seemed to want corned beef hash
"Corned beef hash for Senator Hanna"
bad beeu ordered fourteen times.
When the fifteenth order went down
to the kitchen the chef shouted:
"That's fifteen orders for Senator
Hanna! He'd better watch out or he'll
founder hlsself."

"Ha, here comes Ratcllffe with a

Anthony Shilland,Secretary Treasurer
of District Association No. 6, W. P. of

The feeling predominant in the Slocan
relative lo the new Sunday Observance
law is most antagonistic. It is extremely difficult to encounter those
���whose expressions of opinion favor the
Act as it applies to this or any other
mining country. All agree that the
essential factor in the longevity of mankind is a periodical rest, but that rest
mtiBt be taken amid circumstances and
surroundings which are not repugnant
to the spiritual and moral welfare of the
workers. The new act which came into
force on Friday, demands that all unnecessary Sunday labor shall cfnse on
that day, and to those uninitiated into
the working condition of mines in
Western Canada it will come ss a surprise to learn that the opposition comes
chiefly from the miners, and for thiB
Teason, that an enforced day of rest in
an isolated and ill ventilated bunkhouse
covered with ten feet of snow, and
milts from the nearest camp, is hell
witn the li*l off. The prevailing condition when two shifts aro resting, and
washing is in progrts-, is essentially
nauseous to lhe men whose labor de-
mands it of thorn to keep absolutely fit
to puisue their dangerous calling in
tunnel and shaft.
