Tha Llt-Jit Which Failed.
And it came to pas3, that a certain
aggregation of swindlers, modern gardeners and hold-up men, taking unto
themselves the high falntin title of the
Continental .Biusup Skinemoutograft
Moving Fixture entertainmont, wandered high into the mountains to pursue
brigandage and easy money; anl having
set up their punk contraption in the ball
of the proletariats, tliey accordingly
issued a persistent invitation to all and
sundry with many pence ���-��� ���*������������*������- -ean8
to come and view the Moving Fixtures.
Audio, from far and near Came "big
suckers ami little sucker-., biggobblers
and smaller fry, and verily much pushing and squeedging was encountered to
obtain place wherein to view tha Skln-
emoulograft views. '.But behold, after
absorbing tor one hour yards of wheezy
dftintbepbonp " mnsle," the lights were
lowered nigh unto darkness, und the
agony begun. Bhades of Petl'us Paulus
Rubens, Edisun, and Sousa, it was a
holy terror! Preserve us from the
deptbB of such torture, Amen. For
twenty minutes tlie .muliitudu bravely
bore the penance, and then sponlan -
ously screamed aloud for merry. Faint
multi-colored objects were projected
upon the screen. "Tbo Tower of London" cried one of lhe biiganel*. "By
night," ventured one of the suckers in
a loud whisper. " Lakes of Killarn*y,"
continued the robb*r chief, as another
object bobbed up. "Hell," whined a
wriggling victim, "that's the Black Hole
of Calcutta." "Melrose Abbey," continued the bandit inn tremulous voice.
" Ah, G'wan," retorted a sufferer, light
a bug and let's have a look at it. And
Bonn, anil so on, until the sharks proclaimed tbe show was ended. Verily,
loud and long did the juvenile element
wail for tho return of their pennies, but
jt availed not. Stern and with rapid
motion the male units of the assemblage
hied to the nearest grocery store and
took unto themselves���eggs. The sequel
is not ior ua to relate. We love peace
and eiuiet.   Here endeth the first lesson.

of the C.P.R.  to discontinue the dally
service of the boat between Rosebery
and Slocan City and the Nakusp and

whoops in Halifax for the bum old,
antcdeluvian, m03S*whceled, mile-an-

three times a week, but the consequent
demoralization of the mail service is
like a backward Mop toward tho inidille
ages and oblivion. Coming at such a
time when the .Slocan is awakening from
seven long years of lethargic inactivily,
when all men and women and nil the
old stand-bys nre hopeful and optimistic
beyond the conception of dwellers on
the outside, il. floors the aspirations and
crushes ambition from the hearts of
the old timers. No country can stand
still. It must either go forward or
retroceele, and concsquently this anomalous and high-hutidud proceeding
of the C.l'.U. will strengthen the boliuf
that lhe Slocan is still on the down
grade. We wish in ns strong a manner
ns possible to disillusion all who think
thus, and also those who may have any
misgivings as to the awakening of the
Slocan. It requires but a puerile brain

The meetings were unanimous in their
condemnatijn and determination to
appeal to the Postmaeler-Ueneral for a
speedy change.
At the Sainton meeting some citizens
BpOke very strongly. Several anomalies
were cited, for instance: By the new
schedule mail leaving heie ou Friday
night for tho bank at New Denver
would not reach its destination until
the following Monday night, too late
even for business tbat day. Passengers
en route to Nakusp and tbo main line
would have to hang up at Rosebery
Friday night, Saturday day and night
and Sunday day and night. Although
Rosebery is but ten miles from Sandon
intending passengers have no choke
but to follow out this arrangement, at
there ii no wagon road. The decision
to foist such an inadequate service upon
the district goes to show the lengihof
selfishness to which the giant monopoly
will go.
The following resolution was unanimously adopted by the Sandon meeting and telcg.nphed to the Postniaitcr-
General at Ottawa;
" Resolved at a mass meeting of
ciliiena of Sandon, that iho present ia a
moat Inopportune time io ciiecou-
tinue the dully mail feivice hitherto existing, owing to the S ocan now being
on the eve e,f a long-awaited revival in
LilU.Uer.ing, M'Uing uud Kanihing, and
that hy loisling a tri-weekly service
upon us our commercial interests will
be so seriously injured that the progress of the district is jeoparelised. We
eleiiittud a speedy adjustment."

James Ilovey, a well-known old timer
in-this district writes from Centreville,
N.B. that he is still on top and making
good in mining in that district. This
will be plea a��t news to his many
friends in this district, ns he wns da-
servedly popular here, lie informs us
tlut he has recently bought into a group
of copper claims which will prove a big
Qaylng investment for him and his partners. Development has been done
which proves Unit the 4 foot lead is widening out as depth is attuned. Mr.
Ilovey is so well-known in this district
as a competeut mining man, that it is
supei lluous to adel that if the ore is there
he will find it and make a big success
of Iho mine. Wo congratulate him in
unison with bis many friends on having
secured so valuable a property.
We apologise to the lady editors of
the New Denver "Silver Glade" for inserting an item in our last issue to the
etl'ect that luck of advertising hud
killed the venture. Another number
bobbed up again this, week which contained in ila pages an awful g >od poem,
immortalizing Eddie Angrignon, by tbe
dear girl ecribes. We read between thc
lines, perhaps, deeper than the ordinary ii dividual, and suggest that the
young Indies are on tbe matiimuninl
market for all there is in it. Why do
the dear giils worry so much over the
departure of Mr. Lindsay for hia vacation when there are so many bachelors
in the Silver Citv?
The latest sensation pprung is to the
effect that Hector MacDonald "Fighting
Mac," is very much alive and is organizing a powerful army for China. The
famous general was reported four years
ago to have suicidtd himself in a Paris
hotel, but no response was made to a
$1,000 reward offeiedat the time by a
well known London paper to any person
who would come forward ami prove
satisiactorily that Sir Hector's remains
were interred.
All tlie flotsam amP'jetsam which
has adorned (?) the front of the old
Filbert hotel since the big blaze, was
cleaned away this week, for which,
many thanks.

Philip King Wanders in Bush
For Twelve Bays in a
Demented Condition.
An incident which has caused tho
residents ot- Nakusp pome uneasiness
for tlie past twelve eluys hns bocn
brought to a satisfactory ending, A
young man named Philip King who
wns employed by the C.P.R. there,
appears us tho centre figure, and his
troubles begun when he fell from tho
roof of the round-he use three months
ago and fractured his leg anil sustained
other Injuries. Taken to the hospi'al
at New Denver and put under the sui-
gi-al care of Dr. Brouse, he made rapiel
advance to recovery; but aB ho con-
valesc-el he appeared to engender symptoms of mental aberration, which although not of a nature for the man to
he thought incapable of controlling
himself, yet enough lo cause his friends
anxiety. Taking bis discharge from
the hospital he returned to Nakusp,
but he elude 1 t'.ie vigilance of his friendB
and all  search for him proved futile.
It was generally supposed that the
young fellow's mind hail given out and
he had thrown himself into the lake, but
after given up as dead for twelve days
he has returned to Nakusp in a pitiable
and demented condition, Wandering
aimlessly around In tho bush for tbut
time it is little short of marvellous how
be In his weakened con lition existed so
long. Friends have now taken him in
charge, and the doetors who have examined him say he is recovering and is
quite sane again.
Properties To Be Operated.
Just as soon as the_ snow disappears
from the Chicago groun 1 n largo force of
men will be put to work breaking dowu
tho ore which was blocked out lust
summer and fall. The company has
two camps ready to accommodate the
required number of men, and tbe Btore-'
bouses are now being provisioned. A
big order ot steel is now en i:s way from
Nelson to tho mine. We are informed
by a well advised Cody man that tho
Chicago bus one of the best looking ore
bodies in the Slocan, and that they
have it in several drifts. The Chicago
ie singularly fortunate In its locatian
and surroundings, there bi ing a fina
tract of good mining timber and necess-
aiy water. The opening up of the
Chicago ia another link in the chain of
prosperity wnich is now being welded
for this end of Ihe division.
Another crown-granted property to bo
operated in the near future is the Legil
Tender on the Noble V. mountain above
Cody. Mr. C. Freeman has been instructed by his partners to open up tho
mine, and with this end in view he wi)]_
arrive in a few days and pntagangof
men to work.	
Mudslide Wrecks Cottages.
Owing to the liuth Hume bursting, a
mudslide came down this morning carrying away the cottage owned by P. W
Johnston nnd several untenanted
shacks. Fulling inlo tho creek the mud
and debris blocked the waterway and
the rushing water damaged the rear of
Jalland Bro3. store, sweeping a fowl
house and contents away. A largo
crew of nun with a liberal quantity of
dynamite eventually denied the creek,
anil what at one time looked like a disastrous lloo-.l was circumvented.

THE high rank of "Asparagus
officinalis" awarded to this
child of the early springtime justifies us in making
it the subject of a paper entirely
given up to its nature, works and
ways. It was in high favor in imperial Rome. Tho epicurean patrician���when the modern master
would say, "Be quick about it I"
and the city conductor would growl,
"Step lively!"���enjoined his slave
to "elo it in less time than is need-
eel to cook asparagus I"
Most of us are familiar with the
tnle of the two French gourmands
who quarreled over the rival merits
of oil and butter in cooking asparagus, finally compromising by
sending word to the cook to prepare
half of the vegetable with butter
and half with oil. The friends chatted amicably for awhile after the
point was settled. Suddenly the

An American lover of the table
avers that Asparagus officinalis "is
an aristocrat from tip to stalk." All
of which goes to prove that the
owner of the high-sounding title
differs | utterly from human upstarts. He is an upstart, nevertheless, and the. further he gets away
from his native soil the less worthy
is he.
In Virginia, where our aristocrat
of the kitchen-garden is at his best,
he is systematically kept under the
surface of the ground. Asparagus
is planted in rows, and as it peeps
above the earth, it is banked out of
sight, the lceng lines of rich mould
rising steadily to keep pace with its
growth. Ab a result, when the asparagus is cut for the table   it is
tleached from root to tip and tender throughout. It took me a long
dime to learn to accept the spindling green stalks offered in Northern markets as asparagus. Sometimes German green-groeers aud
,<narket-women called it "grass."
This was said to be a perversion of
���the stately name. Indeed, country
iolk often spoke of it as "sparrow-
,grass." A half century ago Frederic Cozzens, genial and loving humorist, maele us laugh with him at
the bucolic ambitions of Mr. Spar-
rowgrass and his spouse. We quote
him to thia day.
I own, frankly, to a rooted prejudice agninst thc "grass," which time
anel usage have not overcome. My
heart still turns fondly to the plump
and pale columnettes grown iu
Southern market-gardens. Yet 1 nm
told that what medicinal virtues are
inherent in asparagus are more potent in the green spindles than in
the bleached larger stalks. I nm
quite ready to believe the further
assertion that these virtues nre
eliminated from canned asparagus
and that the delicate straw-color of
the closely packed stalks is due to
chemical agents. We all know hof
flavorless the canned imitation is b,��
comparison with the fresh vego
Like other succulent growths, as
parngus depreciates quickly when
drawn from the earth. If cooked
within an hour or two after it is
cut, the twenty minutes' boil recommended by cook-books will send it
to table tender and good. It has
long been my custom to cut off half
an inch from the lower part of asparagus bought in the markets and
to set the stalks upright in water
as I do with cut flowers. It responds gratefully to the treatment,
growing crisp and plump in a few
hours. A damp cloth should be
thrown over it and the vessel in
which it stands.

Boiled Asparagus (English Style).
Cut off an inch from the lower part of the
atallu and scrape them from end to end
with a sharp knife, taking off the thin outer
���kin alone, without bruising the rest. All
the stalks must be of equal length. Bind
them  Into a bunch and  set upright  In  a
. iiaucepan of boiling water slightly salted,
JiiHt deep enough to leave over an Inch of
the tips out of water. Lay clean stores
about  the   base  of   the  stalks   to  prevent
\ them from tipping over. Fit a close cover
on the saucepan to keep In the steam, and
after you feel that the boil has begun, cook
I  twenty minutes.
.     Take up the asparagus, drain off all the
I -water, untie the threads and lay the stalks,
alternately  tip  to  base,   on  a    hot    dish.
Coyer with a good drawn butter and serve.
This might be called a "steamed" rather
than boiled asparagus, the distinctive feature of the process being that the tips are
steamed and thus left plumper and less
sodden than if immersed with the stalks In
the boiling water. If the asparagus be withered and stale, cook for twenty-five minutes.
Boiled Asparagus (German Style).
Cut two Inches from the lower part of the
���stalks. (The thrifty German housewife
never throws these away. They go Into the
atockpot, adding pleasantly to the flavor).
Scrape off the woody skin and tie Into
bunches of a dozen stalks each. Lay at
length ln a saucepan and cover with boiling
water. Put on a cover and cook fast for
ten minutes; then add an even teaspoonful
of salt and a heaping teaspoonful of butter.
Cook for fifteen minutes more; drain, lay on
buttered toast and pour over It a cupful of
drawn butter based on milk, Into which a
beaten egg has been stirred and heated for
une minute. Season the white sauce with
salt and pepper.
Baked Asparagus (Italian Style).
Out the stalks short, aa directed in the
$3st   recipe,   and  cook  tender   In   talfcad
boiling water. Drain and cover the bottom of a buttered bakedlsh with a layer,
arranging ln alternate rows of tips to the
ends of the stalkB. Have ready this
sauce: Drawn butter, based upon a cup
of hot milk thickened with a roux of
a tablespoonful of flour cooked smooth
with a scant tablespoonful of butter; tho
yolks of two eggB beaten light and
two heaping tablespoonfuls of Parmesan
cheese. Cover the layer of asparagus with
this, dust lightly with cayenne, put ln the
rest of the asparagus, arranged as before;
pour the remainder of the sauce on this^
and sift fine crumbs that have been dried
ln the oven on the top of all. Bake, covered, for ten minutes, then brown delicately.
This is a savory entree, and much liked
by those who have eaten It in Italy. Parmesan cheese must be used in the manufacture. No other kind will give the
right flavor.

I UK AD the letter In yesterday's paper
fl|Dm "Stenographer," and your answer,
%fj(l your Ideas so entirely coincided with
mint that I want to write and tell you so,
and (hunk you for tho answer you gave her,
and In a way to others who hold her views.
I suppose she is not to blame because ��ne
never had a chance to learn how to take
care of a house, but how docs she know
she dues not like it when she has never
tried it? Of course, there are things about
housework not entirely pleasant, but so
thero are about office work. I don't liko to
clean my typewriter and get my hands all
stained, but I have It to do just thc same.
Neither do I love to scrub floors and wash
up a lot of kitchen dishes, but I think the
enjoyable parts of housework more than
compensate for these unenjoyable things,
I am not like her. I love housework, and
all that pertains to it, and for a girl who
has worked in an office for four years aftor
completing a high school course I think I
have a pretty good idea of what housework means. My mother was not taught
housework when a girl���that is, to moke a
study of it���and haB never liked It, and she
determined that her daughters should be
taught housework clear through, and I
know I have been, and my little sister Is
making a good start.
It seems to me that no boarding-house
life can make up for a home life, it may
be a little more aristocratic, as she seems
to think, but no boarding houBe would satisfy me, and I know whereof I speak, for
I, too, am going lo be married before many
monthB, and nothing but a home, even
though it be only a small flat, would satisfy me, and I know from things my fiance
has said that 1b what he wants, too. He
has never had a home, being an orphan,
and he looks forward to our having a homo
with a great deal of pleasure. I don't see
what she can bo thinking of deliberately
to put aside home life and be content
with a boarding house. I don't believe she
would be, either, after giving it a trial,

that while there are Just the two of them
they might be contented in a boarding
house, probably some time there will be ono
more, and maybe more, and surely thon
they would want a homo. I think |t is a
girl's highest privilege, being queen of a
home, no matter how small It Is.
Your good letter confirms me in the
belief I love to cherish���namely, that
tho heart of American womanhood Is
still true to the "real things." With
the discouraged prophet of Israel, 1
may say sometimes, when weary with
bruiting myself against the stone wall
of prejudice an" fighting away the
vapors of frivolity:
���'INjave been very Jealous for the
truth, and the women of this generation have forsaken right Ideals and
thrown down the family altars which
their mothers served, and I. even I
only, am left."
With the return of strength and tho
power to reason aright comes the confident faith that there are seventy
times seven thousand in the land
which Is our goodly heritage that
have not bowed their knees to the
Baal of worJdllncre nor kissed him
with their lips. I shake my head at
but one lino of your protest. I do
not think a boarding-house life In
the least "aristocratic." Nor do I
think it is so rated by people who
know the best side of social life. I
am sure that I have never felt myself to be so low ln the social scale
as during the few months when
a ponding change of residence made
boarding expedient. It was at the
end of thi�� penitential period that my
especial "John," who haa a mind of
his own and .. fair command of nervous English, declare i that he "would
rather live upon beefsteak and boiled
potatoes in his own house than sit
down, day after day, to a ten-courso
dinner in the finest hotel in the land."
I have never yet seen a pane man
who did not hold kindred opinions.
Women and Ideas
I Insert us much of our ucxt letter as
I can make room for, not because 1
agree with the writer in her contention,
but that other women, and particularly
mothers, may ponder upon her ideas
and express their individual views. For
myself, I own, without a blush, that I
cried out "Yes!" at dear Peter Pan's
appeal: "Don't you believe in fairies?"
Nor have I ever found that my children confounded the true and the faise
in everyday life and working hours for
having been fed, as a dessert after lessons and real tasks, with the blessed
old fairy tales. Jean Jacques Rousseau
(of whose private life we will say nothing in a family paper) considered that
the parent who told his child that birds
and beasts talk and huve dramas, etc.,
after the manner of humankind, did his
offspring great harm.
I am sorry that I cannot recall the
author of a rhyming reply to the
French theorist that I once knew by
heart.   It began:
"I will not ask Jean Jacques Rousseau
If birds confabulate or no,
Of all things old and some things new.
The child who reads and takes for true
The stery of a cock and bull
Must havo a most uncommon skull."
But now for our thoughtful correspondent's well-written essay:
Many children annoy their parents by lying. I have wondered if reading fairy tales
to the little ones and making up stories to
entertain them had anything to do with
this untruthfulness. Children cannot understand why they may not make up stories,
too, without being called wicked and being
For my  part,   I see no sense  in telling
children about the cow who
"Jumped  over  the  moon.
While the dlnh ran away with the spoon."
It would be far better to read something
sensible to them; something that will help
them to grow up with noblo thoughts and
muke thorn kind to their fellows.
Some fairy tales frighten children. I
know of a child who is afraid to go Into
the garden because some ono read to him

G.   H.   P.   (Holland.   Mich.).
Brief and to the point! The suggestion Is sensible. Salt absorbs moisture
with marvelous readiness and holds It.
ln drying, it cakes and hardens*. I have
seen eggs that Y.erd packed In salt
break when the lump of salt was de-
taehed from them. Upon the same principle the canny housewife mixes cornstarch with the salt in the cellars pro-
pared for table use.
Yes; come again and often, If you are
always as pertinent and sententious as
you have been today.
A Bit of Encouragement
I have always thought yours a difficult
task, but I have more sympathy with you
now than ever.
About three months ago I wrote aBklng
you for two recipes. I gave up looking
for an answer long ago. I believed my
request had found a resting place In the
waste basket. Nor did I wonder at this,
for really the matter waa not important
after all. Imagine my surprise and pleasure at seeing my letter and one of the
desired recipes In a late Issue of the Exchange!
Since I have realized that you must
actually keep track of all letters, and that
you really do answer each ln turn, I think
your patience must exceed that of Job. The
task seems tremendous to me, and I write
thie to encourage those who wait long for
replies, and to bespeak for you their sympathy.
Here Is the recipe I promised:
Sour Cream Chocolate Cake.
Melt two squares of chocolate in one-half
cup of sour cream. Beat together the yolks
of three egga, one and a half cups of sugar
and another half cup of sour cream. Add
the melted chocolate, a pinch of salt, one
large cup of flour, one teaspoonful of soda
and one of vanilla. Finally, the beaten
whites of the three eggs.
Bake in a square tin, and when cool pour
a boiled icing over it.
To make this last: Boil a cupful of sugar
with one of water until it "threadB." Beat
the white of an egg light and add a quarter
teaspoonful of cream of tartar; pour the
syrup over this slowly, and whip all light.
When the right consistency Is gained,
spread upon tho cake. The cream of tartar
makes the Icing light and thick.

A Suggestion
I hf-o tried the recipe for the "Marlon
Harland Compote" sent ln by a constituent. We pronounce It "very good." But
may I suggest that half the quantity of
water (or none at all) be put Into tha
bake dish with the apples, as the water
draws the flavor from the apples?
There la enough juice from the apples
when they are baked, covered, to keep
them from burning, and when it is retained by the apples it brings the compote  to  perfection.

A Ginger }ar's Transformation
LUCKY, Indeed, Is the woman who
owns ona of those fascinating
old ginger Jars from China that
were so popular half a century ago.
Many a scafnrb-g captain, caught
by the rich color wiJ glaze of the blue
and white jars, lacked them up for a
few cents Just to show his women-
kind at home whs** pretty wares "the
heathen furrlner" could turn out. And
the wife or mother, after due wonder,
would probably utilize the rare vase to
hold her pickles or even to the prosalo
mixing of her "sets" for bread.
Little did either realize that their
grandchildren .vould value those vases
among their greatest treasures, which
to buy would cost almost their weight
In gold.
These old Canton ginger Jars, not content with masquerading ln their old
age as flower holders, ure now being put
to a new and Interesting use as a base
for a lamp.
A clever young bride, whose grandfather was a mate on a Chinese trading ship back ln the forties, recently
found three of these charming blue and
Ahlto jars ln her grandmother's attic.
Rapturously she displayed her find, to
the old ludy's vust amusement at the
queer tnste of girls nowadays ln wanting to own those "old Chinee crocks."
Two were at once put to use as flower Jars for the dining table. The
third was filled with a brass tank and
burner. After a somewhat lengthy
search a blue and white shade that
toned ln beautifully with the* rlth*
colors of the base was found In a junk
shop, and a remarkably handsome
lamp was given a place of honor in
the drawing room.
So much admired was this lamp that
one of the other Jars was converted
to the same use. As a second lucky
find of a suitable porcelain shade did
not materialize, a queer hammered
brass shade of Oriental design was
substituted with equally good effect.
Any one owning such a Jar would
have no difficulty in turning It Into a
lamp after tho lighting apparatus Is
added, by buying one of the pretty
Japanese paper and bamboo shades
ln harmonizing tones that may be
so easily picked up. Indeed, a shade
could be home-made at a trifling expense If a cheap wire frame Is covered with one of the quaint dragon
papers  In   queer  Oriental   blue   toti���-
