a perpetual hell and damnation one,
and Missioner Baynes during hi- short
sojourn iu the west has assiiniliated
conditions as they are and not what
they seem. It is not to be wondered at,
then, that the pretty little English
church at New Denver is now invariably crowded at. all services, a p'easing
feature in connection wilh which is that

to the habitue'', chances looked slim for
Divine worship that night. "Boys,"
suid the proprietor to Ilie crowded barroom, "'If Jvou'll all go to church tonight
I'll Bhut her up thi moining." The
response was so unanimous that, it was
forthwith acted upon, and inter on when

A Silverton Mine Worked
With Great Success By
Owners and Leasers.
These mines are loiated on Four
Mile Creek, about 3 miles from Silver-
ton hy good wagon road lo tbe mill,
and then by very steep mountain trail
to the mine, situated at an altitude of
6,000 feet abovo sea level.
The property consists of 8 mining
claims owned by tho Wakefield Mines,
Limited, of London England. This
company ceased operations in 1902 nnd
no complete record of the early history
or production of tho mine is at this
lime available. I nn indebted to
MessrB. Crois & Co., of Silverton, for the
following statistics:
Prior to 190S5 the owners worked the
properly, and received in net smelter
returns for ores shipped tt03.031.69���no
weights or assay values obtainable.
From May 1st, 1902, to November, 1904
the properly was leased to the Anglo-
Slocan Syndicate, Ltd., duiing which
time about 1,400 tons of lead concentrates and 400 tons sf zinc ore were
slipped, but no recon's of the exact
weight or assay value of the shipments
arc available. I quote the following
from a letter of Mr. Reginald Leake,
dated Fob. 20, 190'.���"During the four
months we ran last Biimrner, we made
about 250 tons of zinc concentrates,
running on the average 45 p.c. zinc,
44 |ozs. silver, 5 p.c. lead, and 3 p.c.
iron, the average feed carrying   about
14 p.c. zinc  - j We occasionally
run ncoss (always near the surface)
rich argentiferous galena intermixed
with blende, in which tlie blende carries most of tho silver value. Nearly
all tbe calcite at the mine carries zinc
in small quantities (which it would pay
to concentrate under more propitious
circumstances). We expect this year
to mako at least three times the quantity we did last, as everything is ready
fir an early stait."
At tbe time of my visit (Sept. 30,
1905) the Wakefield mines were being
worked under lease by Mr. Wi'liam
Hunter, who had sliipp *il 23.0 tons of
ore assaying: silver 85 1 ors., per ton,
lead 52 p.c, zinc 10.0 p.c. which netted
about}54 per ton.
The mine is developed hy seven tunnels aggregating about 10,000 feet of
drifting on the vein. Nos. 6 and 7 tunnels aro connected with Ihe head house
of the mniu aerial tram by a short tramway, while No. 2, the principal working
tunnel, is c inneeted with this tramway
by a short aerial tram spanning a deep
draw on the west side of tbe mountain.
Tlie facilities for getting ore to the mill
are thereforo exceptionally  good.
No 2 tunnel is about 6,000 feet above
sea level. All the upper workings are
now operated through No. 2 tunnel,
whicn appears to have opened up the
vein just In low its most productive
zone. The Wakefield vein differs from
anything I had previously seen iu the
Slocan legion. It has Ihe general appearance of a bedded deposit, tho slate
f iot and hanging conforming lo the dip
nnd strike of the normal vein, at least
in the mine workings. Very littlo
could be seen on surfnee on account of
a recent snowfall and bad weather.

To  the Editor of   the  Slocan  Mining
Review, Snndon.
Dear Sir,
At the risk of making a nuisance of
myself, I am going to ask for a little
more space in vour paper. I was much
interested in a letter in your last issue
signed "Bedrock." I submit tbat. this
letter simply emphasizes the importance
of my suggestion, viz., the need of organization. Under the conditions thai
prevail the smelters or  nnv other   cor*
I poration or community of interests may
with impunity dcil out any treatment
they see fit to give, while with the
whole country thoroughly organized for
tbe purpose of advancing the interests
of all, a very much more effective resistance might be made iii  encroachments
��� such as "Bedrock" complains of.
! Now, sir, when I suggested Ihe country needed boosting, it wns not only
I with the idea oi bringing in cap'tal, but
with making use of wi.at we already
havens well,   Besides, there Is  plenty
i of wo'It lor citizen's organizations to do
in other lines, such  as  local improve*
1 ment, and the disposal of the produce
which will soon be a very important
item in our list of assets,
Then, sir, I propose that each one of
the towns in our distriot organize a club,
or committee or association or any oilier
name they see fit to adopt.; the aims of
which organization would be to advance
their own interests nnd as-ist t'>c other
towns for tbe mutual benefit of al).
Each organization tn have two representatives to a central committee which
should meet once or twice a year to
discuss any matters of interest.
At any rate let us make some effort
to work out our own salvation.
Sincerely yours,

Someone has asked us to discuss the
comparative merits of unintelligent optimism and Intelligent pessimism. The
subject is not worth while. There can
be no comparison between non-existing
qualities,���-nnd in our opinion, at least,
true optimism is never unintelligent,
nnd true intelligence will never tolerate
pessimism. Optimism adds to the
world's usefulness, while pessimism is
a drain on the world's strength.

Big Strikes of
Rich Ore.
Slocan Properties Which Have This Week
Startled the World by their Great Wealth.
A ripple of excitement lias been caused
during the past few days by the occur
rence of Borne strikes ot phenomenal
richness. The report reached town a
few days ago that the lessees of the
Elkhorn, which lies at the foot of the
Saudoii camp had " struck it big," and
upon enquiry we learned that there
was substantial fact In tho topic of the
hour. The lessees, however, had nothing to say, they vouchsafing the opinion
that it were belter not to make the
facts public unlil tbey bad rcasonabl
grounds for anlicipating a continuity of
the new ore body.
On Wednesday last the Review editor
climbed the hill to visit the properly
where he. found four men at work.
A good trail extends right to the property, but owing to the spongy nature
of the snow, tlie trip could not be
termed comfortable walking. A new
oro shed contained about twenty tons of
high grade galena, which would average
three figures. Obtaining pennissiou to
enter the portal of No. 1 luntiel, the
scribe made his way for about 1,200 f.-et
along the oil workings, where several
cioescnts bad been made to locate the
ledge. The lessees by can ful deductions had allowed f ir tbe dip and pilch
of the vein, and had succeeded in doing
what a company with Capital and a
number of experts at their back had
failed to do. The vein was encountered
after six months pounding, by two lone
prospectors who had nothing but grit,
brawn and an attenuated bank account
to pull them through.
The workings were extended along a
well-defined though somewhat decomposed ledge, consisting chiefly of quartz
impregnated with iion pyrites. Small
lenses were met with from lime lo time,
bul this c insisted ohiefly of zinc
blende ar.d carried low silver values.
A month or so ago a streak of clean
galena was encoimleied. This, as work
advanced, has gradually widened out,
To-day  the face shows practically the
Three feet of Ibis ore ia clean gnlenn,
assaying 70 per ont lead and about 100
07.s. silver. One foot consists of a mixture of zinc blende with iron pyrites
and giluna. The zinc is iu a suitable
form to a Imit of sorting a high-grade
product. Copper pyrites is seen to be
associated with the zinc in one or two
places, but in insufficient quantity to be
of value. Considerable more work will
have tc be elone before the size of the
ore chute can be determined . All present indications, however, point to a
considerable body of ore. For eight, sets
of timbers this magnificent showing
has extended. Tho zinc runs 51 per
cent, 10 ozs. silver and the iron tarries
jj2 in gold. Roughly estimating the
ore actually in sloping shape, $17,000
shouid be near the mirk.
Working alone for thirteen years on
a prospect with nothing but a rich surface showing to spur him on to secure
the wealth at depth, Frank Griffith has
at last been rewarded far beyond bis
most sanguine hopes. A9 is well
known, Griffith has the controlling interest in lhe Westinount group of claims
on Ten-Mile creek, a mile or co abovo
Slocan lake, the nearest properly of
proved merit being the Enterprise.
The property wns staked in tho early
rush to our mountains, and some rich
ore taken from the surhice. The outcrop, upon which some opeiicuts were
made, proved the pcrmaneuce of the
ledge, hut to get under these showings
to prove the stiike at depth, it was decided that a 1000 foot tunnel would be
necessary. This was a contemplated
task which would daunt the average
prospector, but with his partner, I\ W.
Fliis, of the well-known jewelry firm of
Toronto supplying the s.news of war,
the hcrculauean task was begun by Ml".
Griffith eleven years ago.
Now comes the sterling examplo
be set which quitters who have decried
the country should make a note of and
lind food for reflection in. After years
of lonely toil in which lie never let up,
he tapped the objective point, but ho
found that although strongly mineralized, there were nothing in it for him.
Nothing daunted he drifted on the lead
for another 30 feet, where a year ago he
encountered some kidneys which a local
metallurgist assayed at $100. Keeping
on for another tiO feet he broke into
rich ground, and a few days ngo he
realized that his gigantic efforts were
not thrown away. About eight tons of
the ore has been extracted, upon which
assays ranging from 285 to 2,000 ounces
silver have been obtained, There is no
sign of the ore petering out, wo aro
told, and it is therefore highly probable
that a valuable mine has been discovered.
It is a pleasure for us to record the

ai ne was about to open tbe door
through which he had entered the room
It swung wide aud Count Marlanx
strode In. Baldos paused Irresolutely
and then proceeded on his way without paying the slightest attention to the
commander ot the army. Marlanx
came to an amazed stop, and his face
flushed with resentment.
"Halt, sir!" he exclaimed harshly.
"Don't you know enough to salute me,
Baldos turned Instantly, bis figure
straightening like a flash. His eyes
met those of the Iron Count and did not
waver, although his face went white
with passion.
"And who are you, sir?" he asked In
cold, steely tones. The count almost
"Your superior officer! That should be
enough for you!" he bait hissed, with
deadly levelness.
"Ob, then I see no reason why I
should not salute you, sir," said Baldos,
with one of his rare smiles. He saluted his superor officer a shade too elaborately and turned away. Marlanx's
eyes glistened.
"Stop! Have I said you could go,
���lr?  I have a bit of advice to"���
"My command to go comes from
your superior, sir," said Baldos, wltb
Irritating blandness.
"Be patient, general," cried Beverly,
In deep distress. "He does not know
any better. I will stand sponsor for
mm." Ana Banjos went away wltb a
light step, his blood singing, his devil-
may-care heart satisfied. The look in
her eyes was very sustaining. As he
left the castle he said aloud to himself with an easy disregard of the consequences :
"Well, it seems tbat I am to be associated with the devil as well as wltb
angels. Heavens! June Is a glorious
"Now, you promised you'd be nice to
bim, General Marlanx," cried Beverly
the instant Baldos was out of the
room. "He's new at this sort of thing,
you know, and, besides, you didn't address him very politely for an utter
"The Insolent dog!" snarled Marlanx,
his self control returning slowly. "He
shall be taught well and thoroughly,
never fear, Miss Calhouu. There is a
way to train such recruits as he, and
they never forget what they have
"Oh, please don't be harsh wltb
him," she pleaded. The smile of the
Iron Count was not at all reassuring.
"I know he will be sorry for what he
has done, and you"���
"1 am quite sure be will be sorry,"
said be, with a most agreeable bow In
submission to her appeal.
"Do you want to see Mr. Lorry?" she
asked quickly. "I will send for him,
general." She was at the door, Impatient to be with the banished culprits.
"My business with Mr. Lorry can
wait," he began, with a smile meant to
be Inviting, but which did not Impress
her at all pleasantly.
"Well, anyway, I'll tell him you're
here," she said, her hand on the door
knob. "Will you wait here? Goodby."
And then she was racing off through
the long halls and up broad staircases
toward the boudoir of the princess.
There Is no telling how long the ruffled
count remained in the anteroom, for
the excited Beverly forgot to tell Lorry that he was there.
There were half a dozen people In
the room when Beverly entered eagerly. She wus panting with excitement.
Of all the rooms In the grim old castle
the boudoir of the princess was the
most famously attractive. It was really her home, the exquisite abiding place
of an exquisite creature. To lounge on
ber divans, to loll In the chairs, to
glide through her priceless rugs, was
the acme of ludolout pleasure. Few
were they who enjoyed the privileges
of "little heaven," us Harry Anguish
bad christened It on one memorable
night long before tbe princess was
Mrs. Grenfall Lon-y.
"Now, how do you feel?" cried the
flushed American girl, pausing In tlie
door to point an Impressive linger at
the princess, who was lying back In a
huge chair, the picture of distress and
"1 shall never be able to look that
man In thu face again," came dolefully
from Yetive's bumbled lips. Dagmar
was all smiles and iu the fittest of
humors. She was tlie kind of culprit
who loves the punishment because of
the crime.
"Wasn't It ridiculous, and wasn't It
Just too lovely?" she cried.
"It was extremely theatrical," agreed
Beverly, seating herself on the arm of
Yetive's chair nnd throwing a warm
arm around her neck. "Have you ull
heard about It?" she demanded naively, turnlug to the others, who unquestionably hnd had a jumbled account of
the performance.  .
"You got just what you deserved,"
said Lorry, who was Immensely
"I wonder what your august vagabond thinks of bis princess and her
ladles In hiding?" mused Harry Anguish. The Count and Countess Halfont were smiling lu spite of the assault upon the dignity of the court.
"I'd give anything to know what he
really thluks," snld the real princess.
"Oh, Beverly, wasn't It awful? And
liow he marched us out of that room!"
"I thought It was great," said Beverly, her eyes glowing. "Wasn't It
splendid? And Isn't he good looking?"
"He is good looking, I imagine. But
I nm no Judge, dear. It wns utterly
Impossible for me to look at bis face,"
lamented the princess.
"What are you going to do wltb us?"
asked Dagmnr penitently.
"You are jp spend the v'malnder of
your lb-Tin a dungeon, wltb'Baldos as
guard," decided Miss Calhoun.
"Beverly, dear, that man la no ordinary person," said the princess quite
"Of course he isn't. He's a tall, dark
"I observed him as he crossed the terrace this morning," said Lorry. "He's
a striking sort of chap, and I'll bet my
head he's not what he claims to be."
"He claims to be a fugitive, you must
remember," said Beverly in his defense.
"I mean that he Is no common malefactor, or whatever It may be Who
and what do you suppose be Is? I confess tbat I'm Interested In the fellow,
and he looks as though one might lik*>
hlm without half trying. Why haven't
you dug up his past history, Beverly 1
You are so keen about him."
"He positively refuses to let- me dig,"
explained Beverly. "I tried, you know,
but he���he���well, he squelched Die."
"Well, after all Is said and d��,ne, he
caught us peeping today, and I am
filled with shame," said the process.
"It doesn't matter who he is, he jiust
certainly bave a most unflattering ������pinion as to what we are."
"And he is sure to know us soener
or later," said tbe young countess, momentarily serious.
"Oh, If it ever comes to that I shall
be In a splendid position to explain it
all to him," said Beverly. "Don't you
see, I'll have to do a lot or explaining
"Baron Dangloss!" announced the
guard or the upper hall, throwing open
the door for the doughty little chief of
"Your highness sent for me?" asked
he, advancing after the formal salutation. The princess exhibited genuine
"I did, Baron Dangloss, but you
must have come with the wings of an
eagle. It is really not more than three
minutes since I gave the order to Colonel Quinnox." The baron smiled mysteriously, but volunteered no solution.
The truth Is, he was entering the castle doors as the messenger left them,
but he was much too fond of effect to
spoil a good situation by explanations.
It was a long two miles to his office in
the Tower. "Something has just happened that impels nie to ask a few
questions concerning Bnldos, the new
"May I first ask what has happened?" Dangloss was at a loss for the
meaning of the general smile that
went around.
"It is quite personal and of no consequence. What do you know of him?
My curiosity is aroused. Now, be
quiet, Beverly. You are as eager to
know as the rest of us."
"Well, your highness, I may as well
coufess that the man Is a puzzle to me.
"What are you going to do with ust"
He comes here a vagabond, but he certainly does not act like one. He admits
that he is being hunted, but takes no
one Int.) his confidence. For that he
cannot be blamed."
"Have you any reason to suspect
who he Is?" asked Lorry.
"My instructions were to refrain
from questioning him," complained
Dangloss, with a pathetic look ot the
original plotters. "Still, I have made
Investigations along other Hues."
"And who is he?" cried Beverly
"I don't know," was the disappointing answer. "We are confronted by a
queer set of circumstances. Doubtless
you all know that young 1'rluce Dantan Is flying from tho wrath of his half-
brother, our lamented frleud Gabriel.
He is supposed to be In our hills with
a half starved body of followers. It
seems Impossible that he could have
reached our northern boundaries without our outposts catching a glimpse of
him at some time. The trouble is that
his face is unknown to most of us, I
among the others. 1 have been going
on the presumption that Bnldos is In
reality Prince Dantan, but lust night
the belief received a severe shock."
"Yes?" came from several eager lips.
"My men who are watching the
DawBbergeu frontier came In lust
night and reported that Dantan had
beeu seen by mountaineers no later
than Sunday, three days ago. These
mountaineers were in sympathy with
hlm and refused to tell whither he
went. We only know thut he was In
the southern part of Graustark three
days ago. Our new guard speaks many
languages, but he has never heen heurd
to use that of Dawsbergen. That fact
In itself Is not surprising, for, of all
things, he would avoid his mother
tongue. Dantan Is part English by
blrtb uud wholly so by cultivation. In
that he evidently finds a mate In this
"Then   he  rrullv   Isn't  Prince   I-��n
tan7" criea "noveny.'as'tnough'a cherished ideal had been shattered.
"Not If wj are to believe the tales
from the 2i- '.��. Here Is another complication, however. There is, as you
kuow, Count Halfont, and perhaps all
of you, for thut matter, a pretender to
the throne of Axpbnin, the fugitive
Prince Frederic. He is described as
young, good looking, a scholar and the
next thing to a pauper."
"Baldos a mere pretender!" cried
Beverly lu distress.  "Never!"
"At any rate, he is not what he pretends to be," said the baron, with a
wise smile.
"Then you think he may be Prince
Frederic?" asked Lorry, deeply Interested.
"I am Inclined to think so, although
another complication has arisen. May
It please your highness, I am iu an
amazingly tangled state of mind," admitted the tin ion, passing his hand
over his brow.
"Do you menu that another mysterious prince has come to life?" usked
Yetive, her eyes sparkling with luterest
in the revelations.
"Early this morning n dispatch came
to me from the Grand Duke Michael of
Rapp-Tborberg, a duchy lu western
Europe, Informing me thnt the duke's
eldest son had fled from home and is
known to hnve come to the fur cast,
possibly to Graustark."
"Grent Scott!" exclaimed Anguish.
"It never rains but It balls, so here's
hall to the princes three."
"We are the Mecca for runaway royalty, It seems," said Count Halfont.
"Go on with the story. Baron Dangloss," cried the princess. "It is like a
"A description of the young man accompanies the offer of a large reward
for information that may lead to his
return home for reconciliation, and"���
here the baron paused dramatically.
"And what?" Interjected Beverly,
who could not wait.
"The description fits our friend Baldos perfectly!"
"You don't mean It?" exclaimed Lorry. "Then he may be any oue of the
three you have mentioned':"
"Let me tell you what the grand
duke's secretary says. I have the official notice, but left it 4u my desk.
The runaway son of the grand duke Is
called Chrlstobal. He is twenty-seven
years of age, speaks English fluently,
besides French and our own language.
It seems thut he attended an English
college with Prince Dantan and some
of our own young men who are still in
England. Six weeks ago he disappeared from his father's home. At the
same time a dozou wild and venturous
retainers left the grand duchy. The
party was seen iu Vienna a week later,
and the young duke boldly announced
that he was off to the east to help his
friend Dantan In the light for his
throne. Going on the theory that Baldos is this same Chrlstobal we have
only to provide u reason for his preferring the wilds to the comforts of
our cities. In tho first place, he knows
there Is a large reward for his apprehension and he fears our police. In the
second place, he does not care to direct
the attention of 1'rluce Dantan's foes
to himself. He missed Dantan iu the
hills and doubtless was lost for weeks,
but tho true reason for his flight Is
made plain lu the story that was printed recently Iu Paris nnd Berlin newspapers. According to them, Chrlstobal
rebelled against his father's right to
select a wife for him. The grand duke
had chosen a noble and wealthy bride,
and the sou had selected a beautiful
girl from the lower walks of life. Father aud son quarreled and neither
would give an Inch. Christobul would
not marry his father's choice, and the
grand duke would not sanction his
uuion with the fair plebeian."
Here Beverly exclaimed proudly:
"He doesn't look like the sort of man
who could be bullied Into marrying
anybody If he didn't want to."
"And be strikes me as the sort who
would marry any oue he set his heart
upou having," added the princess, with
a taunting glance at Miss Calhoun.
"Uinph!" sniffed Beverly defiantly.
The baron went on with his narrative,
exhibiting signs of excitement.
"To lend color to the matter, Chrlsto-
bal's sweetheart, the daughter of a
game warden, was murdered the night
before her lover lied. I know nothing
of the circumstances attending the
crime, but it Is my understanding that
Clirlstobul is not suspected. It is possible that he is Ignorant even now of
the girl's fate."
"Well, by the gods, we have a good-
Iv lot of heroes about us!" exclaimed
"But, after all," ventured the Couut-
ivis Htllfout, "Bnldos inny be none of
1'iese men."
"(lood heavens, Aunt Yvonne, don't
i-iggest anything i'o distressing," said
tetlve.   "He must he one of tbem."
"I suggest ii speedy way of determining the mutter," said Anguish.
"Let us send for Bnldos und ask him
point blank who he Is. I think it is
up to hlm to clour uwny the mystery."
"No!" cried Beverly, starting to her
"It seems to be the only way," snld
"But I promised him that no questions should be asked," snld Beverly,
almost tearfully, but quite resolutely.
"Didn't I, Yet���your highness?"
"Alns, yes!" suld the princess, wltb n
pathetic smile of resignation, but with
loyhlty In the clasp of her hand.

The finest grades of razors are so deV
lcate that even the famous Damascus
sword blades cumiot equal them In
texture. It Is not generally known that
tho gralu of a Swedish razor is so sensitive that Its general direction Is
chauged after a short service. When
you buy a fine razor tlie grains run
from the upper end of the outer point
In a dlugoual direction toward the handle. Constant stropping will twist the
steel until the grain appears to be
straight up and down. Subsequent use
will drag the grain outwnrd from the
edge, so thnt after steudy use for several months the fiber of the steel occupies ii position exactly the reverse of
that which It did on the day of purchase. The process also affects the
temper of the blade, and wheu tlie
grain sets from the lower outer points
toward tho back you have a razor
which cannot be kept in condition even
by the most conscientious bnrber. But
here's another curious freak that will
take pluce In the same tool: If you
leave the razor alone for a month or
two and take It up you will find that
the grain hns assumed Its first position.
The operation can be repented until the
steel Is worn through to the back.���

The Inevitable Fate That Awaits the
Absinth Tippler.
What is absinth? it Is prepared by
pouuding the leaves and flowering tops
of various species of wormwood, star
anise root, sweetflag root, leaves of
dittany aud other aromatic plants, and
steeping tbem In alcohol. After eight
or teu days the mixture is distilled,
aud oil of auiseed or some similar essential oil is added. This Is tbe method
of producing the genuine absinth, but
it vuries usually lu the direction of
cheapening production and increasing
profits. Poisonous wood alcohol is
used for macerating the vegetable Ingredients, and Inferior and often Injurious herbs are employed. These do
not always prod ace the much desired
greenish opalescence, and turmeric, indigo, sulphate of copper and other coloring matters are employed. The consequences of regularly drinking even
carefully prepared absinth are in the
end ruinous to mind and body. The
���until difference between the various
qualities of the liquor Is the rapidity
With which deleterious effects are produced. A nan can go on drinking tbe
better qualities a little longer before
lie becomes n mental and physical
wreck; that Is nil. And, whether one
drinks to excess or only takes a regular dully dose, the end is the snme.
The sequence of events nnd tbelr duration only nre ilill'erent. In the first
case the large doses of the liquor necessary to produce any effect speedily

thirst. Hallucinations speedily follow,
and lhe grave or the madhouse is the
inevitable end. The nbsinth tippler
goes to ruin down an easier slope. Ills
earliest symptoms nre loss of weight
nnd strcugth, followed by the develop*
ment of muscular twttchlugs nnd a
tottering gnif. somewhat similar to
that of locomotor titiixin. Then hallucinations set in, accompanied by gradually spreading paralysis, which cuds
in death, If n person Is n regular daily
drinker of absinth, whether be drinks
to excess or only tipples moderately,

by mildness or death, is absolutely certain.���Exchange.

Was Returning From a Day's Hunt,
When the Infuriated Beast Attacked His Wife���Could Not Shoot For
Fear of Killing Her���Grapples With
the Animal and Finally Overcomes
It Without Aid.
The story of on officer's desperate
encounter with an infuriated beast
comes from Lucknow. Lieut.-Col.
Hutchinson, of the Second Ghurkas,
had a thrilling fight with a leopard,
which attacked his wife while on a
shooting trip near Dehra Dun.
They were returning after a day's
shooting, and the beaters had gone
on some distance ahead. Mrs. Hutchinson was walking about ten yards in
front of her husband. She deviated
slightly from the path, and surprised
a young leopard, which immediately
attacked her.
Col. Hutchinson instantly raised
his rifle to shoot the beast, but dared
not fire for fear of wounding his wife.
Then, seeing that the only way to
save her life was to drag the leopard
off, he dropped his rifle and attacked
the beast with his hands.
A Desperate Fight.
The leopard first attempted to seize
his arm, but missed, and Col. Hutchinson was able to keep it at bay while
hia wife rose and ran to call the beaters. Meanwhile, the animal sprang
again on Col. Hutchinson, and a desperate fight between the man and the
beast followed.
Col. Hutchinson eluded its spring
with marvelous agility. He made
several attempts to regain his rifle,
but the leopard was on him before lie
could pick it up. Then he thought of
his revolver, and was placing his
hand on his hip to draw it, when the
leopard sprang on him again and
seized his right arm. Desperate as
the position was, Col. Hutchinson did
not give in, and, although he was suffering terrible agonies, be grappled
with the beast. They rolled over several times, the leopard still clinging
to its hold on his arm.
Rifle  Does the Work.
At last Col. Hutchinson freed hia
arm and succeeded in getting hia revolver. Then he shot the leopard in
the eye. The animal let go its bold,
but the shot had only blinded  it.
Before it could spriug on him again
Col. Hutchinson had gained possession of liie rifle, and succeeded in
killing the beast just as th*1 first of
tbe  beaters came buck.
Col. Hutchinson waa by this time
so exhausted from loaa of blood and
the struggle that he was in a state
of collapse. He was carried back to
his bungalow, and his arm, which
waa terribly lacerated from the should-
er to the wriBt, waa attended to.
He is now progressing favorably.

Massive Bracelets and Armlets of
Solid Gold That Once Adorned Warriors Bold,  In Good Preservation.
Workmen engaged in a sandpit at
Crayford, Kent, England, have unearthed a number of massive bracelets or armlets of solid gold, supposed to be portions of the barbaric ornaments of ancient Britisli chiefs.
The supposition that the sandpit
was the burying place of the chiefs is
supported by tbe discovery of bones
at the same spot and of weapons of
stone and flint close by.
The armlets were found at a depth
of three or four feet from the surface.
Their value as gold alone is estimated
to be from $1,250 to $1,500, but their
antiquity and historical associations
muke them priceless.
They are in a perfect state of preservation, and bear inscriptiona on
some of the jewels, which have not
yet been deciphered. Experta are of
opinion that they date from a period
long before tbe Christian era.
They have been deposited at Scotland Yard as treasure trove, and are
now  the property  of the  Crown.
In May last eight similar bracelets
were found near the same spot, and
the finderB received as their ahare of
treasure trove a sum equal to about
$110. Those braceleta are now in the
British Museum.

Ventilating London.
Skyscrapers were advocated by Mr.
A. Hudson, at a lecture at the Surveyors' Institution, for the purpose of
ventilating London.
The best natural ventilator of London, said Mr. Hudson, was the
Thames. The London parka were also
most important ventilators.
The action of motora in stirring up
germ-laden dust waa a very serioua
item. In future, windows in many
streets might have to be used purely
for the admission of light. In that
case the ventilation would chiefly
have to be derived from shafts running down the middle of the house.
Mr. Hudson thought that tall
blocks of buildings here and there
throughout London would constitute
health reaorts for those who lived in
the upper storeys, whilst those who
lived in the neighborhood of these
high buildings would have the ventilation of their houses vastly improved by the eddies round these lofty

Elementary Schools In Great Britain
Reduce Number of Criminals.
Since the year 1870 millions of
money have been spent on elementary
schools in Great Britain. Have the
great results which were then anticipated been realized? It is very
pleasant to note that the highest hopes
of promoters of education thirty year=
ago  are  accomplished facts to-day.
In 1&70 there were 30,000 people in
jail, nearly 6,000 more than there bad
been ten yeara before. Now, though
tlie population of the United Kingdom has increased by over fifty per
cent., we have to-day only some 20.-
000 people in prison. That this good
effect is due to our elementary school?
is atrongly suggested by the following table:

Proper Way to Churn.
The agitation in churning should
be aa violent as the form of chnm will
ndmit, saya Farm Progress. Thr
churning is to be stopped while the
butter is in the granular form. In
order to bave as thorough churning af
possible the temperature of the cream
should not be over 53 degrees.
The buttermilk should be drawn
from the churn and the butter washed. The butter must be removed from
the churn and salted while yet in th
granular form. The amount of sal
should be to the taste of the custom
er. For most people one ounce to thi
pound is required.    . ..
Reproduced above, is a portrait of the lata
Mr. C. B. Record, the founder and original
head of the Record Foundry & Machine
Co.,  of Moncton,   N.B.,   and  Montreal,
P.Q. .      .
Previous to Mr. Record going into the
manufacture of stoves, those used in
Canada were almost wholly of American
manufacture. The character of the work
turned out by the Record Foundry &
Machine Co., at onco gave their stoves a
standing, and as a result a very large
business soon grew up, largely owing to
Mr. Record's untiring industry and perseverance against many obstacles.
Although Mr. Record retired from active
business as far back as 1879, the solid
basis on which he had established the industry, has resulted in its growth from a
sturdy pioneer into one of the largest stove
manufacturing plants on the northern half
of the American continent. With two
large plants, one in Moncton and one in
Montreal, the Record Foundry & Machine
Co. are known from Halifax to Vancouver,
and their "Calorific" and "Admiral"

When the World Was a Cube.
There was a time, centuries since,
of course, when the learned men of
the world really taught that the world
was a square, not merely flat, but
that it was a cube. The primitive geographers of Egypt, Assyria and China
all taught that tho world was a
"square plane," evidence of which may
be found ou thousands of ancient monuments in tlie countries mentioned, as
well as In their ancient manuscripts,
upon their Inscribed tablets of clay and
other early literary remains. One of
the most curious discoveries ever made
in Central America concerning Toltee
beliefs, symbols, etc., is that they also
had a similar idea concerning the form
of what we now speak of as the
"globe." A writer on the discoveries
made among the monumental ruins of
that country says, "They (meaning the
Peruvians, Toltecs and Quiches) believe the world to be a cube, suspended
from the heavens by cords of gold fastened to each of Its corners."
The Aesthete.
Occasionally the Fairhght drawing
room supplied a specimen o. the
aesthete as Du Maurier was then
drawing him In Punch. His dress was
a complete suit of black velvet and
salmon colored stockings. He joined
tlie shooting party, but be generally
fell down when the gun went off.
That, however, did not prevent his
charming the ladles. "You do not look
well, Mr. Maudle," said one of these.
"Thanks; I am not 111, only tired. The
fact Is I picked a primrose ln the wood
yesterday. It seemed sick, and I have
beeu sitting up all night with It."���

What It Should Contain and How H
Should Be Kept.
In constructing the butler's pantry tt
Is hardly possible to have too much
thelf room for placing the dishes as
they are removed from the table. It is
e good plan to have two sinks side by
Bide, one for washing and one for rinsing the dishes. They should be well
Bushed every two or three days with
boiling water aad washing soda. This
will keep the pipes free from grease.
All racks for hanging towels should
be of nickel. Then there is no danger
of rusting. Be sure there is plenty of
light In the pantry. .      '
A competent maid will be particular
about keeping the butler's pantry
clean, wiping off the glass doors and
shelves and polishing all nickel fixtures. The drawers holding table
linen need not be cleaned as often as
those in which the-crumb scraper, carving utensils, etc., are kept. The silver drawer should be provided with a
large, neatly fitted pad of canton flannel. The dust may be frequeutly
shaken from this, and the silver should
be laid In it ln an orderly fashion-
knives In one part, forks In another
and tablespoons and teaspoons being
kept separate to save time in serving.
Tablecloths should be folded as little
as possible and require a large drawer. The napkins and dollies should
occupy a separate drawer. All linen
not in constant use may be kept in the
linen closet or highboy.
Canton flannel bags for covering the
broom to use In dusting hardwood
floors, chamois and neatly hemmed
cheesecloth dusters should be kept In
another drawer. Shelves painted white
are much better than those covered
With oilcloth nnd are easily kept clean.

It Causes  an  Excessive  and   Injurious
Strain on the System.
Every one knows that the ascent of
a staircase Is more fatiguing than ordl-
eiiry walking. In walking progression
Is effected by a succession of lifts, Inclinations nnd swings.
In starting the body is lifted, for example, by tbe levers of tho right foot
and is Inclined forward. The left foot
being then raised from the ground, the
leg swings forward and Is carried by
Its momentum beyond tho right foot
The levers of the left foot now lift
the body again, and the right leg
swings forward, and so the body oscil-
utes along on n pair of pendulums,
ihort pendulums vibrate more quickly
bun long ones, and therefore short
egged people step quicker than long
egged people, though with uo more
ense of exertion.
,Iu going upstairs the mechanism of
progression is of course the same, but
be lifting action, which is tbe real
force consuming part of tbe process, Is
inw greatly increased.
Instead of being just sufficient to nd-
iiit of tho free swing of the pendulum
i'OOt it must be so great as to project
ilie body up at ouch step a distance
1'quul to the height of the stair.
Running upstairs is thus an excessive strain upon the constitution, but
where does this strain fall? The levers
of motion are moved Immediately by
the muscles, but the muscles cannot
act of themselves.
Their contractions and relaxations
take place only under stimulus. They
are all connected by lines of force, called nerves, with the nervous centers,
and these are the sources of muscular
Not that the nerve force of the brain
Is converted iuto the mechanical movement of progression, but nerve force is
constantly drawn upon to maintain
the action of the muscles, and tbi3
draft is always greatest where there is
a sense of exertion.
When bodily vigor Is high, the evil
result of running upstairs may not be
decidedly felt, but where there Is debility of any of the processes this
strain cannot fail to tell In some form
or   other   with   injurious   effect

K Marvellous and Triumphant Record
of Victory Over Diseaso.
No medicine has ever effected u large
i number of wonderful and almost marvellous cures as Psychine. It has had one
continuous record of victories over diseases of the throat, chest, lungs and stomach.
Where doctors have pronounced cases
incurable from consumption and other
wasting diseases Psychine steps In and
rescues numbeiless people even from the
very verge of the grave. Coughs, Colds,
Catarrh, Bronchitis, Chills, NlghtSweats,
La Grippe, Pneumonia, and other like
troubles, all of which are forerunners of
Consumption, yield quickly to the curative powers of Psychine.
Mrs. Campbell, one of the many cured,
makes the following statement:
t cannot refrain from telling ill who suffer
ot my remarkable lecovery with Fly-fine In
April, 1903,1 caught a heavy cold which settled
on my lungs and gradually led to coniumpUon.
I could not sleep, wu subject to night sweats

Psychine to me, when 1 wss living in Ontario,
after using Psychine tor a short Ume I ate and
slept well, the night sweats and cough ceased
