The results being achieved throughout the division arc highly encouraging,
and confidence for the future is deeply
established. From every corner of our
rich section cotne most gratifying reports, and particularly is this the case
with regard to leasing propositions. In
the majority of instances the leasers are
local men, men who understand existing conditions with regard to formation,
-topography and geology, and who have
secured leases of idle ground, or tunnels
which owners would not work for the
reasons that it was thought barren or
freight and treatment was too exorbitant to handle at a profit. Conditions
in the latter case, however, have been
modified by the revival of the metal
markets, though there is much to lie
hoped for and little to be expected in this
direction from the Trail smelter with
regard to lead. Their's is the cinch, but
the " handwriting on the wall " is lie-
coming bolder and clearer every day;
and we look for the exposition of as liold
a graft as ever was perpetrated, in the
near future.
Several rich strikes have been made
within the past week, and in one in
tnnce, at the Standard, it once more
demonstrates the continuity of ore
bodies and the merit of deep mining.
This is one of the oldest properties in
the division, and it has paid from the
first stroke of the pick. Regular shipments have left right along. Now comes
the good news that three feet of solid
ore has been struck in the lowcr\unnel.
This has been confirmed from the mine.
Work will continue all winter. Manager Aylard has ordered two cars ol
lumber with which to build extensions
to the bunkhouses, etc.
At the Sunshine, which is being worked under lease by Tom Curley and Al.
Holinquist, they have a wonderful showing. This strike was made during the
present month, and it is better looking
now than ever. Over 500 sacks of ore
are ready, which will ship at not less
than 150 ozs. silver. There is a strong
mineralized vein with 22 inches Of solid
galena. All bauds arc sorting and sacking ore.
On the McAllister group, which is
worked under lease by Geo. Clark anil
W. Bennett, a splendid strike of very
rich ore has liee.n made and over -100
sacks are now filled. This ore will net
the lessees over 300 ounces silver, it being principally grey copper. There is a
14 inch streak of this ore, which can be
traced for a considerable distance. Work
is being hampered by lack of ore sacks,
there being a dearth of these in the district.
At the Colonial, breaking down the
ore still continues. A tunnel has been
started to get under the outcropping. A
shipment was made last week.
The Bosun is shipping 75 tons daily
to the concentrator at Rosebcrry, and
the ore body is as strong as ever.
The Fisher Maiden, an hitherto big
producer, has resumed operations under
supervision of Geo. Long.
There is from four to crght feet of
solid ore at the Vancouver mine, which
is owned and worked by Le Roi No. 2
of Rossland. The new tramway being
built from the Vancouver mine to the
Wakefield mill, will be completed in
about a mouth. The Wakefield mill is
one of ihe largest concentrators in B.C.,
and it is being put in first-class shape
to handle the ores from the Wakefield
and Vancouver mines.
The Buffalo is sending regular shipments to the smelter.   ,
At the Canadian group development
work is winning out. Manager Brandon shipped two cars of ore a week ago.
The feed from the Ruth is as strong
as ever, and at the mill, which is separating lead and zinc concentrates, everything is>rmining like clockwork. About
seven cars of zinc ���oncentrates arc
stored here.
The lessees of No. 4 level at the
Whitewater mine arc meeting with good
results. Work was started a month
ago, and after raising a few feet the lead
was again caught. Ore is coming in
better with ovcrv shot.
The Whitewater Deep mine is looking
very good just at present. They have
four feet of high-grade ore.
Manager Pratt, of the Last Chance,
has returned from Spokane. Development is being continued, but it is probable that regular shipments will be
made in a few weeks. The tunnel they
arc now driving is 1600 feet below the
outcrop and is now In 700 feet. The ore
body is as strong as ever.

along and Jack insisted upon him doing
the barber act. I/igan waded in to lift
the lid and make the fur fly, when Will
Winstead butted in and criticized most
severely the quondam barber. That
made Logan hot, and he said things and
turned the job over to Winstead. lie
had a go, and was making a bad mess of
it, when some one else butted in, so he
retired from business. Jack Tyo looked
like a half shorn sheep, aud he implored
the newcomer, with tears in his eyes, to
finish tho job. He waded in and took a
chunk of skin off as a preliminary. At
that moment the K. & S. eastern express
tooted, and the wiso guys made a successful dash for the train, leaving Jack
feeling and looking like thirty cents, and
thinking hard thoughts of the world in
general and amateur barbers in particular. .

I 1-totes ano Comment.
Whether there was any mmikcydoodle
business going on at the Nelson Fair
or no it is up to the directors to decide.
We allude to the fact of certain exhibitors tampering with the exhibits to
the derogation ot others, aud the forthcoming indignant protest from Then. V.
Adams, president of the Kaslo Fruit
(���rower's Association. The latter positively asserted,���and he is bucked up
by many other responsible visitors���that
the rules and regulations were played
ducks ]and drakes with by Nelson exhibitors, and by this means the $100 cash
prize donated by the C.P.R. was secured. According to Rule 10, all exhibits must lie staged by eleven o'clock
on the evening prior to opening day,
and "exhibits cannot be removed on
any pretence whatever until ten o'clock
on the evening of the 21st " (closing
Kaslo won the " President's Cup" for
the best district exhibit, and it made as
brave a show towards gaining the $100
general exhibit award as you ever saw.
This competition was held in a different
part of the building, and it is alleged
(and, en passant, not denied) that
a quantity of exhibitB were taken from
the Nelson District table to the other
part of tho building to boost for the $100
special and fix Kaslo good aud plenty.
The rules were broken, and by their
own people. The protest was made,
but it was turned down���turned down
cold. It's too bad to have to say it,
but until the directors make up a plausible explanation the public will naturally think there's " a nigger in the
wood pile."
��    #
Another thing which looked bad���
rank bad���was the fact that Mr. Adams
had not tho courtesy extended him of
personally presenting ��r hearing his
protest presented to the board. The
district which secured the big money
prize was under the control of two of
the directors, who, by the way, webb
present at the hearing.
Now; honest, Nelson-
look rotten ?

A drummer who struck camp one day
this week was wandering aimlessly
around during the afternoon taking in
the sights. Our prize local item rubberneck sceiitud a par, and this is how
ho was rewarded for eavesdropping a
conversation betweea the stranger and
a citizen:
" Where's the theatre ?"
" Aint one."
" Nor a music hall ? "
" Nope."
" Nor a dancing class ? "
*' None."
" Well; what excitement do you have
in the evening ? "
���' Oh, there's nothing to speak of in
the evening, but if you're around fairly
early in tho morning you can wr'-'
engine 402 shunting freight."
Why, of course it docs; and we admire Editor Dcano for his outspoken
demand for- an inquiry. Nelson cannot
afford to lose the reputation she has
made with her fall fairs. There is too
much at stake for her to let the matter
slide, and they will readily understand
that confidence must be restored to exhibitors from outside points, who con*
fidently anticipate a fair shake, but
imagine they are butting up against a
win, tie or wrangle outfit. Rule 26 says :
" The*violation by an exhibitor of ANY
of tbe rules shall involve the forfeiture
of  all   prizes  awarded to  him."
wonder how they got round that ?
Mr. Adams did not take away the
" President's cup," which was won by
Kaslo. He just refused to take it away
on principle, and his action was endorsed by his fellow citizens and the
district generally. The spirit engendered by the incident will not be conducive to love feasts or friendly rivalry
���between the two cities. Kaslo people
claim when Nelson has any chance the
former invariably gets it in the neck.
To win a trophy and leave it on their
hands is where they heap coals of fire
and get. their own back with dignity.
Kaslo would have won tbe $100 for
the best fruit exhibit had Nelson not
broke the rules. This cannot be denied.
It is alleged also, that deliberate stealing was going on to bolster up Nelson's
exhibit. We feel confident that the
people of that city are downright
ashamed of some of the directors, but
they must not include them all. There
were two or three Old Country sports
among them who love a square deal, and
these men spoke pretty plainly that
the protest should be sustained, even if
it meant that Nelson had to play second
fiddle to Kaslo. If Nelson cannot
stand public defeat, then she had better
stand aside for her superiors at fruit
raising. If Editor Potter doesn't make
the directors look like stabbed hogs this
week we shall be much mistaken.
It's strange that both Kaslo and
Nelson should lay claim to and use the
appellation of "Queen City." They do,
though, and Kaslo is sore at Nelson for
swiping it. Why can't Nelson leave
Kaslo its pet name and coin an original
one for itself. Which is the queenlier
of the two we know not, but we do know-
that New Denver has them both skinned
to a fareyouwell finish. If Nelson must
have  an alias we suggest the "City of
Straits" we forgot, though, straights
don't go; and besides, people might put
too much questioning emphasis on the
the " straights." " Sucker City " might
do, but then that would be a steal from
Illinois. What's the matter with
" Beau Ideal" 7 It sounds symphoni-
ous, and when assayed it will lie found
to mean: " Beauty���created by fancy,"
sml that hits it off to ujoety.
We are still of the opinion that deep

The road that leads to "Fontaine de
Virginia"    ascends    rapidly    between
the high walls of vast estates, through
the gates of which can be seen well
kept gardens, chateaux, villas, and
prosperous farms. Half way up the
hillock Is a path in which carriages
seldom venture; it is very solitary
and silent place, where even the barking of a dog awakens strange echoes,
Soon the forest becomes thicker, tho
sea is lost to sight, and nothing Is
heard but the abrupt flight of the
startled bird or the rustling of leaves
In the soft summer breeze. Then, suddenly, a rustle bridge is reached, and
on the other side of the stream is a
clearing, devoid of underbrush, and
shaded by enormous beech-trees. In
the very middle, almost at the foot
of the oldest and most venerable tree,
spurts a spring of clear cool water
that forms into a crystal pond before
running Into the brook. A prettier
spot for love, happiness and gaiety,
could not be found; It Is the domain
of Queen Mab, of Titania and Oberon.
To please her sister, Marthe had
organized a picnic in this charming
spot, and had redoubled in Kindness
and affection to make her forget her
contradiction concerning the comedy.
Edmee was not angry, oh, no! But,
now and then, a light cloud on the
young face, an almost Imperceptible
sigh, showed that this little creature
was thinking of things she could not
speak of. For the first time the caprices were not law. She was astonished, hurt even, but she never-
thelesss forgave. Marthe was so
good, and she could not be expected to rise above the "prejudices"
of her castle. Edmee, in her mother's
world, had been taught to scorn these
"prejudices" and, as her ideas were
still crude and confused, she classed
many things under that category. She
often shocked Aunt Relie by the excessive Indulgence she entertained
for certain liberties of speech and
conduct; but in Marthe's presence she
instinctively concealed her imperfect
knowledge of the world, feeling that
her elder sister was more of a "society woman," In the true sense of
the word, than she was herself.
Most of the guests at Mme. d'An-
cel's dinner were at the picnic. Many
young girls accompanied by their
mothers; among these, two gay and
somewhat giddy American girls who
had rented an old manor near Cote-
Boisee and for whom Edmee professed a great friendship.
The life of the party was Captain
Bertrand who had come at full gallop
from Trouvllle. As he neared the rustic bridge, his exhausted and panting
horse shied. Feeling that all eyes
were upon him, the officer forced his
rearing steed across the bridge several times, lashing and spurring him
pitilessly, until the poor beast almost
"Spare the poor beast, spare him,
I beg of you!" cried Marthe, indignantly; "believe me, the spectable is
anything but an agreeable one, and
you have sufficiently proved your
"I am at your orders, Mademoiselle," he replied, gallantly. "But if
you had command of a regiment, or
tho breaking in of a horse, you would
be obliged to harden your tender
"I can, nevertheless, command
obedience when occasion requires,"
she said, simply.
"I am the proof of that," retorted
the handsome captain, bowing with
an ironical smile.
And he immediately began to make
himself useful, offering his services
lo all, laughing gaily, and bustling
about. Edmee gazed at him with evident satisfaction. That day, the equilibrium she so skillfully maintained
among her admirers���and all the
young men she met were naturally
classed under this category���was a
little disturbed In favor of the young
The latter, moreover, made no attempt to conceal his admiration; he
boldly, almost brutally devoured her
with his eyes. She wore a simple
light blue cambric dress, that became
her blonde beauty wonderfully. She
made a great pretense of being busy,
rolling her sleeves to the elbow, and
pinning her skirts just high enough
to display the daintiest little foot
imaginable, while the other young
girls opened enormous baskets sent
on  before.
Edmee offered to fill the water-
bottles at the spring, Captain Bertrand agreeing to carry them back
when onco filled. To do this, she must
nl and on the stones placed there to
facilitate the approach, and lean over.
How could she refuse the willing
hand stretched to assist her? In fact,
she had no choice. And how pretty
she looked, half kneeling, holding
the bottle in her right hand, while
the captain firmly clasped the other.
He bent over also and, for an Instant,
the limpid water reflected the two
faces together.
"See, Mademoiselle Edmee," he
whispered, trembling with emotion,
"the spring unites us, it Is the divinity of the place, and the will of the
gods is sacred."
"It is nothing but water," laughed
Edmee, not in the least shocked, "and
poets say that the billows are perfidious."
"Let me tell you that I adore you!"
said the young man, earnestly; "you
are driving me mad. I have loved you
since lhe very first, day I saw you���"
"What, In that horrid railway compartment?" interrupted Edmee. "The
shrill whistles, the five-minute stops,
and the dirty, ill-smelling smoke, are
not. poetic accessaries, "J ou must admit."
"You are laughing at me! But I
shall go on repeating that I adore you
until you are forced to believe it."
"But I do believe it."
"Ah! and it displeases you."
"Not nt all. It amuses me."
The young officer gave such a start
that Edmee almost lost her equilibrium and this equilibrium was of
morn moment to her than even the
"Be careful!" she cried. "The bottle was nearly full, now I shall have
to start over again."
"So much the better���"
"Edmee!" called her sister, "be
Careful or you shall take a disagreeable bath. Besides, you must hurry,
we are walt.Uur tn 4mi��ln"
"i am coming! This is my last bottle."
"Will you allow me to spen ��� to you
Ir- private after breakfast, where no
one can disturb us?" asked the lover.
Edmee made no reply, but gave him
a smile and a glance that fully satis-
lied tho gallant captain.
This little scene, which scarcely
lasted five minutes, had been observed by other eyes as vigilant as those
of the elder sister. While assisting
Jessie Robinson in unpacking a monstrous ham and a delicious pate,
Robert had watched the captain's attitude and Edmee's coquetries.
"Do you know, Monsieur d'Ancel,
that you are answering me at random?" said Jessie. "I asked you
where we should put the pate, and
you replied, 'In the water.' "
"I thought you spoke of the champagne, Mademoiselle."
"You see very well���"
"That you have turned my head."
"I? Oh, no, it Is not I."
And the American girl glanced mischievously at Edmee, who was returning from the spring with a bottle In
her hand,  while Robert Hushed    furiously, angry   with   himself   for    his
Then they believed him in love
with Edmee?���He?���Why, he was en-
j gaged, or as good as engaged, to
Marthe. Once more, he regretted that
the engagement should have been
kept a secret. He was on the point of
telling all on the spot, but he dared
not. Marthe desired her liberty for
herself as well as for him; and, in
fact, that calm personage seemed far
from being either in love or jealous.
No doubt, she would soon inform him,
in the cold, gentle voice of hers, that
she was free, that she could never be
his wife. At this thought, he was filled with a violent emotion, an emotion that strongly resembled joy. Yet,
he had desired this marriage, and,
without, feeling a veritable passion
for his childhood friend, he had felt
attracted toward her, had done full
Justice to the .qualities of her heart
and mind. Then?���
But he dismissed the subject; he
would be happy for a few hours, If it
was possible.
The captain had found a place for
Edmee opposite her sister, but Robert
was ever watchful.
"Mademoiselle Edmee," he said,
"Marthe has reserved one end of her
throne for you. Come, you will form
an adorable group together, and we
shall be your subjects." Edmee arose
at once. A throne, whether made of
the roots of a tree, or of gilded wood
and velvet, was hers by right. With
a merry laugh, she glided among the
groups, leaped.lightly over an. enormous basket, and landed beside her
sister. Throwing one arm around
Marthe's waist, she nestled closely at
her side. She instinctively knew that
she never appeared to better advantage than when her laughing, mischievous face rested against the regular but pale and serious features of
the young chatelaine. Edmee was always more prodigal with her caresses
in the presence of witnesses, and beside her Marthe seemed almost cold,
reserving her caresses for the privacy
of their home.
When Robert arose to get the champagne, which was on Ice at some distance from the table, the captain followed him, and said, angrily:
"You  offered her that seat beside
her sister to take her away form me!"
"It is  quite  possible," replied Robert, calmly. "Here, take this bottle, I
shall lake charge of the rest."
"You take charge of a great many
things, even of some that do not concern you. You are jealous of me, furiously jealous!"
"See here, my friend, this is no
place to make a scene; we are observed. I introduced you to those young
girls, and I am, in a measure, responsible for your conduct. You forget
that you are not in a garrison, and
that In our world we do not court a
woman with beating drums."
"As long as that style of courtship
succeeds  better than  your    languishing airs���but   you   are   neither   her
father nor brother, that I am aware."
"Enough, Bertrand. Mile. Levasseur
is almost a child and does not realize
how much you compromise her."
"And you intead to warn her?"
"Yes, herself or her sister."
"We shall see about It."
They said no. more, for the discussion was attracting attention.
"You must be preparing a duel,"
laughed Jessie Robinson, little guessing how near the truth she was.
"You have guessed it," replied Bertrand. "It is to he a champagne duel.
Robert pretends that his head is more
solid than mine. The wagers are
Prom that, moment, the champagne
seemed to produce its effect beforehand on the young officer; his contagious gaiety soon won the rest, with
the exception of Marthe, who could
not overcome a sense of uneasiness.
After breakfast, which was prolonged as much as possible, there was
some discussion as to what should be
done. The indefatigable American
girls proposed games, but it was decidedly too warm. The greater number sat in tho shade of the tall trees,
while a few of the young girls, among
whom was Edmee, wandered off In
search of flowers and ferns. Robert
overcome by remorse, seated himself
beside his fiancee, conversing tenderly and affectionately, and poor Marthe was happy for a moment, believing he was returning to her, that the
momentary fascination had passed
away. Suddenly she saw him start
"What Is It?" she asked.
"Do you see your sister over there
with the rest of the young girls?
Your eyes are better than mine."
"No, she Is not there."
"And Bertrand has disappeared,
too. I should have suspected It."
"Why? What has happened?" cried
Marthe, anxiously.
"Marthe, It Is all my fault I Introduced Bertrand, because he is an old
friend, and I could not help It; but I
should have warned you. He is a
violent, unscrupuoous fellow, and not
at all a suitable husband for your sister."
"Oh, Edmee has no Intention of becoming his wife, I assure you. She has
carefully weighed tho pros and cons,
for, in spite of her giddy manners,
she has a singularly well developed
practical sense of life. She will only
marry advantageously. The captain Is
only a military man, not wealthy, and
the name Is vol blah sounding enough
to t"mpt her.'"
"But he compromises her. I am
sure her friends over there know she
has givpn him a rendezvous, and are
gossiping about her."
"Let us go together," said Marthe,
: rising; "it will look more natural
| than if you went alone. They can not
��� be far."
I     They   walked   on    In    silence,    for
1 Marthe could not help thinking that
! Robert rhowed more    Irritation    and
nervousness than the occasion seemed to warrant.
While gathering flowers and ferns
for all, Bertrand had gradually enticed Edmee from the rest under pretext of finding late violent. The forest was very thick and shady at this
point, and the brook flowed with delicious coolness.
"But where are your violets?" she
""Further on, where they-alone will
hoar us,", he replied.
"Then you have laid n trap for me?"
said Edmee, smiling and thoroughly
com posed.
No, It Is the rendezvous you have
granted inc."
"I Have granted vou nothing, Captain."
"Von think not?���Then your eyes
have lied, that Is all."
"What did my eyes tell you?"
"That you were willing to listen to
me, that you knew I was foolishly In
love with you, and that you were
ready to share that folly���"
"Then they surely lied, I assure
you, Captain, that I will never commit any folly, that I am a very sensible little girl���"
"If you are a sensible little girl,
then you are aware that the best
thing you can do is to get married as
soon as possible."
A cloud gathered on the girl's
"Why, I am only eighteen."
"Why? I shall tell you why. Because
you will not be happy long with your
sister. Just now she plays the little
mamma to perfection; you are a new
doll of which she is very fond, but
it will not last. You come from two
worlds, not only different, but hostile.
When you proposed a comedy the
other day, Mile. Levasseur feared you
would play It too well, show that you
wore your mother's daughter."
Edmee broke a branch with a snap
and angrily plucked the leaves, but
she remained silent.
"It Is not much," went on the captain, "but straws indicate which way
the wind blows. Your sister spends
eight or nine months of the year in
the count ry, and you can not expect
that she will make a change In her
habits to please you, to take you out
into the world where you would be
welcomed as queen while she would
be neglected."
"You are pleading your own cause,"
observed the girl with a shade of sarcasm.
"Yes, for I love you. You must be
my wife, mine forever. There is
nothing I would not do to win you;
if necessary, I would tear you by force
from this world so Ill-suited to
"And from Robert d'Ancel," laughed E'lnice.
"Ah! you know that he loves you
loo���and it amuses you, just as my
love amuses you. Beware, Edmee, I
swear that I would kill you rather

"Dramas are out of date, remember."
"On the stat';" rather than in life.
Mever has jiass:on been the cause of
more crimes than 'n our days���and I
would not shrink from crime."
Until this moment, Edmee had re-
laincd that disdainful calm of the
Parisian girl, little inclined to tho
sentimental and brave withal. Bui
she now began to fear this impor
lunate lover, wondering if the numerous glasses of champagne he had
drank at breakfast were not the cause
of his exaltation. She thought him
simply frightful with his blood-shot
eyes, his panting bieath and flushed
face; she no longer recognized her
handsome captain In this excited
"Monsieur Bertrand," she said, In a
dignified tone, "will you have the
kindness to lake me back to my
friends? You were wrong in enticing
me so far away, and I was wrong in
following you, but I never for an instant doubted that you were a man
of honor."
"Give me a little hope, Edmee," he
pleaded. "Have pity on mo, I swear
that you must be my wife!"
Grasping her hands he covered
them with passionate kisses. For the
first time in her life, the young girl
was really frightened.
"Marthe! Marthe!" she called, her
voice ringing clear and sharp.
"Here I am, my darling. I have been
looking for you for the last fifteen
minutes," replied her sister's quiet
At the sight of Marthe, she immediately recovered her presence of

Stokers on a  Ba'.tleship.
Henry Nevlnson, special correspondent of The Glasgow Herald with the
lirltlsh 'blue fleet In the recent manoeuvres, after describing how blue dodged
red's superior force In the Atlantic and
raced Into the English Channel, says:
"While we in the salt air and sunshine of the bridge admired our speed
and watched the enemy receding behind
us, the true heroes oX triumph were
tolling In narrow chambers of Iron far
below the water's level. There, for sixteen hours apiece during our forty-eight
hours' run, the stokers laibored in an
atmosphere that, I think, was never less
than 120 degrees and in the chamber
of the old cylindrical boilers was more.
Four hours on and eight oft ran the
shifts, and for four hours at a time
each stoker piled his furnace, shut in
from above by the armor which makes
a battleship's stokehold very different
from a liner's. The down draft whirled the black dust round them; the fires
burnt their flesh; they streamed with
sweat; In spite of all precautions the
glare scorched their eyes."
And for a word of praise and two
shillings a day, adds Mr. Nevlnson, they
did it all and smiled.

Description of Their Business and Their
Method of Pursuing It���A Popular Error Ccrrected.
On the subject of reckless speculation
publlo opinion may not always be enlightened, or may not exactly square
with public practice, but It' is generally
sound. If a plebiscite were taken as
to th* moral character of ventures ol
the get-rlch-qulck order there ars few
voters who would hesitate to put their
mark opposite the word "bad" on the
ballot-paper, though at tnat particular
moment the majority mif-hl have their
���earnings staked on some "wild cat"
enterprise. Especially Is the lure of
the "ticker" an evil against which the
mass of the people are forearmed by
their consciences, if not by their Into!
llgsnoei. Millions of adults to whom It
la a mystery denounce it as an Iniquity,
but somehow more or less of "the pub-
Ho" always makes Its way to the market and stays there.
A Popular Error.
Reckless speculation has no peculiar
haunts. It Is carried on in the marts
of conservative business as well as In
the resorts of the gambling fraternity.
The "tloker" Is heard alike In the legitimate broker's office and In the bucket
shop, and plungers are to be met with
In both places. In the one, as In the
other, there Is trading on margin.
Fixing on these points in common, and
being uninformed as to the points of
difference, the undlscrlmlnaiting but
righteous public condemns both, and,
worse than all, seizes on the term
"bucket shop" as a convenient name
(or both. The recent raid l�� Toronto
was sufficiently sens.'tlonal to be the
talk of the town, talk Ir. which the error often oropped up that "tuicket
shop" was a slang term embraolng all
brokers executing orders for stock?,
bonds, or produce on margin. Many
people otherwise we'd versed In the
ways of business, and not without experience of stock-dealing, show themselves to be unaware of the distinction.
The Brokar.
The legitimate broker buys and sells
shares, bonds and produce, taking and
making delivery of the actual property
for his customers. If a client orders ICO
shares of 0. P. R. common stock at a
stated price the broker gets It for hl.a
lf It la obtainable at that price. Another service the broker very commonly renders. He obtains for the customer a loan of the money, over and above
the tatter's margin, that Is required to
pay for the stock, the stock Itself being pledged oa collateral for the borrowed funds. But there Is an actual
purchase of the stock, an actual payment of the purcua.se sum, and an ac-i
tual delivery of the script. The business Is facilitated if the broker be'.orojs
to a stock exchange, that is to say, a
market place in which commission dealers meet at specified hours to bid and
offer for securities that are to be
bought or sold aeiMrdlnir to thr> varying orders of olleata. The business of
a great stock exoliange, such aj thai
of New York, Is vast. For the pur-
posea of thla trade a tremendous mechanism has come Into existence.
Bucket Shops.
Bucket shops are parasites that ha'-j
fastened on the regular stock exchange
and produce exchange business. There
eould be no bucket shops If there were
not legitimate trades in securities and
produoe. The buying and selling, so-
called, In these places Is altogether
fictitious. They take a customer's order
exs/Mly the earn* as It Is taken In the
legitimate broker's office, only tihey do
not execute it, though they give him
a memorandum In which a purchase
or sale on his account at the price of
the moment Is recorded. If the price
goes up, and be U Insistent enough to
have the stock then sold, he will have
a profit to his oredlt. This, of oourse,
cannot have come from the payment
made by a purchaser, for there was no
purohoaed. The difference between the
price of the lot when the so-called
buying was done for the customer and
when the so-called selling was done for
him, oomes out of the pocket of the
buoket shop proprietor. The latter had
bet that the price would not go up and
had lost. As the frequenters of such
places are usually speculating for a
rise, If there Is a bull market the bucket shop eventually gets "cleaned out"
by Its customers, or to save his money
Ita  proprietor  closes   up.
Profit by Dealera.
In times of falling prices the clients
of th* bucket shops cling to the "bull"
aide as they do In days of prosperity,
and then It la the bucket shop man
who wins the bets. On the reaction
of three years ago the bucket shop
people made rich hauls. At other
times, when there is neither a 'tbull"
nor a "bear" market, but what Is call*
ed a traders' market, that Is, when
prices are up and down, the bucket
shops usually do very well. In such
times their dally letters are full of
warning to oustomers to hold on, as a
big rise Is coming. The customers
who heed that advice generally experience a smart setback which wipes
out their slender margin and turns it
Into the coffers of the bucket shop
man. All the manager's arts must be
piled to keep a customer from selling
when the latter had a profit In sight, and
to accelerate his selling when the market has declined. In other worda, while
It Is the policy of the legitimate brokers to have his clients make money so
that they may Increase their "business*]
with htm, It Is necessary to. the existence of the bucket shop proprietor's
business that his clients lose money.
Among his clients there are usually
some who know toe condition of the
aotual market and are able to keep
their margin good. To find money to
pay their winnings and to make profits for himself, the bucket shop keeper
must shake his weaker customers out.
This Is one reason why the business
wo* placed under the ban of tha Criminal Cade.
Origin of the Term.
The bucket shop got Its name and
Its start In Chicago. On the Board
of Trade there grain Is dealt in lots of
5,000 bushels. Operators who bid for
broken lots, as 1,000 bushels, were spoil-
��� n of disdainfully as buyers of wheat
by bucketfuls. These buyers segregated
In what Is known as the open exchange,
and their places of business were called
bucket shops. The name extended to
dealers In broken lots of securities. Then
slender margins became a distinguishing feature. Finally the term bream*
specialised to ita sresent sense.
Varion- Causes That Brlna* About aa
Attack of Vertigo.
Dizziness, or vertigo���scientific writers sometimes try to distinguish In
sense between these two words, but
practically, In popular usage, they
mean the same thing���Is a disturbance
of relation to tbe outside world, a loss
of the sense of equilibrium. The sensation persists even when the eyes are
closed. There is more or less inability
to walk straight or even to stand still,
and often there Is nausea, followed by
Vertigo Is due to a disturbance,
either actual or reflex, of the nervous
"center of equilibrium" In the back
part of the brain or in the semicircular canals in the ear, lu which the terminations of the nerves coming from
the center of equilibrium are distributed. For the most part, vertigo Is a
reflex trouble due to some Impression
which gets shunted off Its own route,
as It were, through nerve fibers connecting with the equllbrlum center
and acts upon the semicircular canals
of the ear. Thus It is that dizziness
is a comparatively trivial affection, as
a rule���disagreeable enough, but brief
and of no great significance except as
a symptom of trouble elsewhere In the
Persistently recurring, transient dizziness Is often due to eye strain���that
Is to say, to errors In the formation of
the eye not corrected by proper glasses.
Wearers of spectacles can frequently
tell when a change In tbe eyes has occurred, necessitating a corresponding
change In the glasses, by the coming
buck of these attacks of giddiness, especially when the gaze Is suddenly
moved from a near object to a remote
one or the reverse.
Vertigo Is a common symptom of disorders of digestion seated either in tbe
stomach or the intestine. The treatment for this form is, of course, to
treat tbe indigestion or constipation.
Another more serious variety of dizziness depends upon disease of the
heart or of the blood vessels, especially
those of the bruin.
Any disease of the ear Is apt to be
associated with more or less vertigo.
The same Is true of tumor or other
disease of the brain, especially of the
cerebellum, that part of the brain In
which the center of equilibrium is situated.
The dizziness of seasickness, as well
as that of swinging or of rapidly turning about. Is thought to be caused by
an Irritation of the nerves in the semicircular canals by the striking against
them of the fluid In these canals.���

There Is always more or less talk
current about abolishing position and
dispersing pelf. Tbe trouble is to
know Just where to begin the destructive reconstruction and to find reformers who are willing themselves to be
reformed. An English great lady was
once entertaining tbe labor member of

Duke of Argyll and others at her country seat She was a strong Liberal,
and one evening Inveighed against the
house of lords. It would be swept
away If It did not reform, nhe said
with fervor.
"Yes," agreed Broadhurst, "and how
will you like that, Mrs. P.?"
"Lady P., If you please, sir," Instantly corrected Broadhurst's hostess,
drawing herself up haughtily.
A River of Death,
Before the English occupation of India It was estimated that the Oanges
carried to the sea every year 1,000,000
dead bodies. It was then considered
by the Hindoos that the happiest death
was one found In Its waves, and all
pious Hindoos who could do so were
carried to Its banks and placed In Its
waters to die. The decaying carcasses
along Its banks were probably responsible in no. small degree for the pestilences which formerly desolated tho

a Man's Character.
No woman should marry a man till
she has seen him sharpen a lead pencil. She can tell by the way he does
It whether he is suited to her or not.
Here are a few infallible rules for her
guidance In the matter:
The man who holds the point toward
him and close up against his shirt
front Is slow and likes to have secrets.
He is tbe kind of man who when the
dearest girl In the world finds out that
there are "others" and asks him who
tbey are and what he means by calling on them will assume an air of excessive dignity.
The man who holds the pencil out
at arm's length and whittles away at
It, bit or miss, Is Impulsive, Jolly, good
natured and generous.
He who leaves a blunt point is drill
and plodding and will never amount
to much. He Is really good hearted,
but finds his chief pleasure In the
commonplace things of life.
He who sharpens his pencil an Inch
or more from the point Is high strung
and Imaginative and subject to exuberant flights of fancy. He will always be seeking to mount upward and
accomplish things In the higher regions of business and art, and bis
wife's greatest trouble will be to hold
him down to earth and prevent his
flying off altogether on a tangent.
The man who sharpens his pencil all
around smoothly aud evenly, as though
It were planed off in an automatic
sharpener, is systematic aud slow to
anger, but he Is so undeviating from a
fixed principle that he would drive a
woman with a sensitive temperament
to distraction in less than six months.
On the contrary, he who Jumps In
and leaves the sharpened wood as jagged as saw teeth around the top has
a nasty temper and will spank the
baby on the slightest provocation.
There are certain women who can
manage that kind of man beautifully,
however, and If he gets a wife with a
calm, persuasive eye be will come
down from his high horse In a few
minutes and be as meek as a lamb.
The man who doesn't stop to polish
the point of lead once tbe wood Is cut
away has a streak of coarseness In his
He who shaves off tbe lead till the
point Is like a needle Is refined, delicate and sensitive. He will not be
likely to accomplish so much as bis
more common brother, but he will never shock you and Is without doubt a
good man to tie to.���New York Press.

It is a Liver Pill.���Many of the ailments that man has to contend with
have their origin in a disordered liver,
which is a delicate organ, particularly
susceptible to tho disturbances that
co.ne. from irregular habits of eating
and drinking. This accounts for the
great many liver regulators now
pressed on the attention of sufferers.
Of these there are none superior to
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills. Their operation though gentle is effective, aud
tho most delicate can use them.
lhe Growing Chicks.
As the chicks advance in growth they
will need more lime in their food, not
by adding lime (which is too caustic),
but by resorting to foods rich In tha
lime salts, as wheat, corn and oats
contain but little lime, says Poultry
News. They will also require more nitrogen in their rations. Once a day at
least they should have a ration composed of two pounds wheat bran, one
pound ground dried blood, two ounces
bone meal and four ounces linseed
meal. The mess should be mixed with
barely enough water to hold the mixture together. Do not use this more
than once every other day If the chicks
are thrifty, giving whole wheat and
cracked corn In preference, with nilllot
seed between meals.

The Pate of Mokranl, a Moslem Chief
of  Africa.
France was never In greater danger
of losing her colonies in Africa than
during the war with Oermnny In 1870.
Tbe troops were recalled from Africa
to take part In tbe conflict that was
going on against France, and Algeria
was left almost defenseless.
The hour for which the conquered
races bad long waited had come, and
If a holy war bad beeu proclaimed It
Is probable that the French would have
been driven from northern Africa.
But tbe tribes did not rise while the
French had their hands full on the
other side o.' tbe Mediterranean, and
the fact was due to their fidelity to a
solemn pledge.
When the war broke out a chief of
great Influence amoug tbe tribes, Mokranl, gave his word to the governor
geueral of Algeria that there should
be no Insurrection while the war lasted.
That word was faithfully kept. Disaster after disaster followed the French
arms. The defeats of the war culminated In the surrender of Paris.
But not a man of the tribes of Kabylla
stirred. The Moslem's faith was
plighted; tbe Moslem's faith was kept.
When, however, the last battle hud
been fought and the treaty of peace
signed, Mokranl, then released from
his word, gave the governor general
notice that In forty-eight hours ho
would declare war. The French
armies, released from duty at home,
hurried across the Mediterranean. Tbe
end was Inevitable. Mokranl, seeing
that all was lost, put himself at tho
bead of his wanlors and fell fighting
In the front rank. Tbe French erected
a monument to mark the spot where
their noble enemy perished.

The Milking Machine.
The milking machine means larger
Investments in dairying. It means
more and better milk and butter and
cheese. We thought that we produced
a pretty decent sort of milk. The cows
were clean and the men were clean,
and we have been complimented on
the sanitary condition of the stable
and milk, but just as soon as we began milking with the machine there
was a decided difference. The man
stated that he noticed the difference
the first time be washed the separator
bowl. An expert dairyman the other
day sampled the milk and pronounced
it perfect milk. There Is absolutely no
chance for any dirt, dust or anything
of the sort to get Into the milk, and If
the teat cups and rubber tubes are
kept clean���and they can be with very
little trouble���you have a product that
Is perfectly wholesome.���Colon C. Lil-

New Fertilizer.
The Canadian agent in Norway reports from Christiania that a new fertilizing product, nitrate of calcium,
concerning which he sent a full report
under date of Jan. 4 last, is manufactured from the nitrogen of the atmosphere, and its price has been fixed at
$4.13 per 220% pounds to farmers,
while Chile saltpeter costs them $5.33
for the same weight. Experiments last
summer have proved that the two fertilizers are very nearly of equal valuo
to plants. Just now the fertilizer should
have special attention from thoi.*e who
have hitherto used kali from Germany,
which product a German trust is advancing in price.

How Plant Lice Feed.
Many people do not understand that
plant lice feed in a very different manner from a caterpillar or a potato beetle. Plant lice aro not provided with
jaws for biting off pieces of a plant,
but their mouth parts are drawn out
into threadlike organs which move
along a groove in a long 3lender beak.
The threads are forced Into the plant,
and the juices are sucked Into the insect's food canal, much as a mosquito
works. Therefore one cannot feed such
a sucking irsect a poison spray on the
surface of a leaf, but it is necessary to
hit each plant louse with something
that will cover up its breathing holes
or soak into its body and thus kill by
actual contact with the insect.

Modern   Dlscn*   Thrower   Strikes   a
Graceful  Attitude.
"If any of our sculptors are seeking
for a new subject," remarked an artist
wh* was sitting through a set of athletic games at which Martin J. Sheridan was giving an exhibition of his
skill at throwing the discus, "there is
the man for them to study. Just
watch him the next time he throws
the thing from my point of view and
see if you don't think they would be
rewarded for their study."
The spectator to whom this remark
had beeu addressed kept bis eye on
the hero of the Greek games from the
viewpoint of his sculptural possibilities, and this is the impression he received: A tall young man In a white,
sleeveless jersey, running trunks and
black spiked shoes stood quietly out
In tbe middle of tbe field while a
smart summer shower dampened his
black hair until it was streaked down
over bis low forehead. Ills chest was
unusually broad and deep, his shoulders square, the muscles of bis legs
having their greatest development in
their long sinews rather than In circumference. His repose was the most
striking thing about him after his
muscular development, for be rarely
moved, talked little and laughed or
smiled less. It was plain he took bis
work for tbe moment seriously.
Nor when it came bis time to throw
the discus did he alter his manner,
except to grow more intense, if anything. Grasping tbe circular disk of
wood and metal, he made one preliminary and wide sweep of his body
and arms, the movement being noticeably slow, and then as he gathered
the necessary momentum he twirled
with almost Incredible speed twice
around on his toes, the second revolution carrying upward until it seemed
as if he must necessarily leave the
ground and fly up into space, so full
of the suggestion of flying was tbe
tense, beautifully graceful figure.
As he rose on bis toes in one of
those revolutions of his body bis figure had more grace than that of the
classical "Discus Thrower" and suggested flying more than docs Diana
on her tower or the angel fluttering
before Sherman as be marches to tbe
Any sculptor who can create that
effect In bronze is likely to be ranked
among tbe masters of his kind and
will do something far and away above

One Railways.
The average number of passengers
In each railroad train in the United
States in 1904 was 00.25. This represents a growth from about 3!) a train
in 1898, but is still far below tbe development attained abroad. In 1898
Germany carried an average of 71 persons In each train, and India had the
large figure of 189. The development
of the electric railway in tills country
and the frequent train service help to
keep down the average. On each of
tbe 212,000 miles of railway In 1904
there were carried an average of 1*04.-
193 passengers. That is to say, the
aggregate passenger mileage of the
country, according to the Hallway
World, divided by the mileage of tbe
track, gives the figure named. In Germany, as far back as 1898, this figure
was 342,000 persons; In France It was
283,000 In 1897, In India 289,000 and
in Austria 214,000. Tho figures for
Great Britain are not obtainable.
The Phoenician Monarch and His Effort to Imitate the Hetty.
Hiram,    the    Phoenician    monarch,
I strove to Imitate God by erecting four
mighty pillars upon whicb be caused
j seven heavens���apartments���to be built
j The first was constructed of glass, 600
by 500 yards, storing therein mock images of the sun, moon and stars.   The
j second compartment of iron, 1,000 by
'. 1,000 yards, waB tbe receptacle of pre-
; clous stones, causing a terrific noise
resembling thunder when they crashed
against each other and tbe casement of
the lnclosure.   The third chamber was
of  lead,  1,500  by  1,500 yards.    The
fourth was of tin, 2,000 by 2,000 yards.
The fifth was of copper, 2,500 by 2,500
yards.   The sixth was of sliver, 8,000
by 8,000 yards.    Tbe seventh was of
t gold, 3,600 by 3,600 yards, containing
i precious stones, pearls and a uiugultl-
: cent throne.   A channel of water sep-
I arated the apartments.
I    Hiram, Imitating the royal splendor
| of  the court  of King  Solomon,  sur-
| rounded himself. by the grandest con-
| celvable display of magnificence.    In
tbe seventh apartment was stationed a
I golden bed, the corners of which were
| set in pearls without value In all tho
| world, sparkling forth beautiful flashes
resembling   lightning,    which   spread
j wonder and terror among fils subjects.
Tbe prophet Ezeklel was ordered to
appear before Hiram, who, at a loss
as to how to reach tbe seven heavens
wherein  the  monarch   presided,   was
transported Into bis castle by the locks
of bis hair.    Upon perceiving the divine messenger Hiram trembled. "Who
art thou?" thundered the Indignant harbinger of future events.    "Why dost
thou boast?  Art thou not born of woman's womb?"
"I am," replied Hiram, "but I Uvs
forever. Like God dwelling over waters, dwell I. Like him reigning over
seven heavens, I rule In seven apartments. As God Is surrounded by lightning and thunder, so am I. God has
stars in heaven; so have I. Many sovereigns have succumbed to mortality,
and I still exist Twenty-one kings of
the house of Israel and David, twenty
prophets and ten blgh priests have departed this earth, but I outlive them
"Why dost thou boast?" again demanded Ezeklel.
"Because thou didst supply the
cedars for Solomon's temple? This
puts me In mind of a subject who prepared a splendid garment for his sovereign, and as often as the servant
gazed at tbe glorious piece of work he
boastingly remarked, This Is my
manufacture,' until the king, observing his vanity, tore It off In disgust.
Such will be thy lot The temple
which thou helpest to build will be
destroyed. What will then become of
thy pride?"
Absinth In the Class Room.
An amazing discovery has been made
In one of tbe communal schools of
Paris. A class master noticed that after 10 o'clock every morning one of his
pupils, a little boy of seven, seemed to
become a prey to fits of delirium. He
thumped his neighbors and when reproved by tbe master rolled on tbe floor
shrieking and groaning like one possessed. The child was constantly in
the habit of asking leave of absence
for a minute or two, and the master
had him watched. It was found that
he carried a small bottle of absinth In
his pocket and took a sip as often as
he could escape from the class room. It
has been proved that the child's mother
tilled the bottle for him every morning.
A Deer and a Man.
In Westboro, Me., Percy M. Arnold
- w a deer tho other day. The animal
allowed the man to approach It Arnold threw bis arms around the deer's
neck. Tbe deer sprang off toward the
woods at great speed, and the man
was afraid to let go. The deer rushed
through bushes and over walls In its
endeavor to shake off Its strange burden. At last tbe deer brought up
against a tree, and as Mr. Arnold had
no wind left after meeting the tree hs
dropped off. Arnold will be forced to
buy a new suit of clothes to replace
the tattered rags which the bushes left
him, when the doctor allows him out
once more.

who went to church some time ago and

While the hymn was being sung we
glanced about us and counted about a
dozen members of the congregation and
of the church who do not speak to each
other when they meet on the street, or
elsewhere. The thought occurred to us,
why should they 'know each other there'
when they seemingly don't know each
other here?"

A   Murderer   Appears  to   a   Man   Who
Smote Him After Death.
Writing in the Illustrated weekly
"Canada," "A Habitant" says: The Incident that I am now going to relate
happened In the same parish wherein
Is situated the Sault au Reuollet. Soon
after the arrival "of the English In Canada, the custom of gibbeting orlmlnals
by the roadside came In. There was a
very famous one at Polnte Levis, and
a 'habitant named Vallquet was driving
past on the day appointed for the
christening of a child of his; there was
to be a great supper and rejoicing at
his house that night to celebrate tiie
occasion, and Vallquet, feeling recklessly happy, drove close to the giibbet
where hung the body of a man who
had been guilty of a very brutal murder, and caught it a smart crack with
his whip saying, "I invite you to supper at my house to-night." A friend
of Vallquet's who was driving with
him, shuddered, saying: "The man has
been a criminal, but he has paid his
penalty before men, and If he repented
at the last he may be a saint in heaven
to-day." But the happy father was
light at heart, and thought only of the
joy-making of the christening feast.
Evening came, and with it the guests,
and they sat down to table, excepting
tihe new mother, who was unable to
rise from her bed. Hardly had supper
commenced, when there were three
knocks at the door, and, without waiting for It to be opened, in walked the
gibbeted murderer, carrying his Iron
cage under his arm; he put the latter
behind the door and stood facing the
Kept His Appointment.
It Is needless to describe the terror of
the assembly, or how Vallquet'a knees
trembled as he gathered bis wits and
courage together. "What do you want?"
asked he. "If you want suffrages, I will
say a Libra for your soul and some
other prayers." The figure replied, "You
Invited me to supper, and I have come."
Vallquet feared greatly for (tils wife's
health, so he begged the apparition to
depart, promising his prayers. The
ghost, who at flrst Insisted on waiting
for the dance and taking part therein,
finally promised to go on condition tihat
Vallquet would come the following
night to his gibbet at the stroke of midnight and dance. This being agreed, tha
ghost picked up his cage and walked
out. Everyone, of course, tried to persuade their host to break his promiee,
but he would not hear of such a thing.
Woman's wit provided the best expedient. A baptised baby was supposed,
and is still supposed by some people, to
be an angel from heaven, and the anxious mother suggested that hen* husband
should take the ahild In his arms when
he went to redeem his word. Accordingly Vallquet went the following nlgiht
at the stroke of twelve to the gibbet,
carrying his child In his arms. "What!"
said the murderer, "you come thus
provided? I came last night alone,
but you only come with an angel to
guard you. Put down the child, for I
have a splendid dance to propose, and
the time Is measured by the strokes of
a whip." "No," said Vallquet. "I have
kept my promise to meet you here, and
I will ep.y the prayers I offered to say,
but I will not put my child out of my
arms." "You are at any rate brave,
even though you are thoughless," answered the murderer. ''Henceforth you
will respect the dead, and remember
the dead, like the living, can keep appointments."

"Professor Itiggs, I see, advises people to chew lava as a panacea for all

which grows very near or In the lava

with a constant cough which nothing
seemed to relieve. The coachman, a
native, In our employ, seeing the dilemma, stopped his carriage and, picking a few stems from the shrub, gave It
to me as a sure remedy for my cough.
It certainly did prove a panacea and
worked like magic. Perhaps this same
plant, grown by the lava, may possess
some of the constltutents that Professor Riggs claims for the lava. The
