No. 12   Vol. 2,
NEW DENVER, British Colur-ibia, Thursday, Nov. 14, 1907
CompreSiensive Scheme To
Attract Capital To Our
Fertile Valley.
We live ploased to announce that si
progressive step in Slocan history was
made thia week Unit will lead to a great
revival ln our lake towns and ultimate
prosperity all along the line from
Nakusp lo Slocan City. In the early
part of this week Mr. S. M, Brydges,of
the well-known Nelson linn of Brydge**,
Blakeinoreand Cameron, Ltd., came to
New Denver accompanied by Major
8. Harris! an Australian gentleman of
means and a veteran o( the Boer war.
It waa this gentleman's object in paying
the Slocan a visit to inspect severe
thousand acres of land owned by Mr.
Brydges and large parcels owned hy
local and other parties. For the lirst
three days of tliu week the'o gentlemen
weie out cruising this land early and
lato, and aa the outcome Major llairia
was so delighted with all he haH seen
here that he contracted a'deal to finance
the exploitation of 11,000 acies of really
good land ideally suitable for the culture
uf fiuit.
We ran across Mr. Harris at the St
James' hotel, where lie was resting after
his three days' trudge around tho district, and he impressed 113 as being a
man who could lie entrusted with something which we In common with every
lakeside dweller have at heart, i.e., the
fair name uf bounteous Slocan. In
conversation with tho major ho aaid
of all the lakes lie had seen, and he had
econ many, never had lie seen anything
ao grand or charming. This towns presents such charms to me that I have
���'ecided to spend a great part of next
year here with my family. This lake
offers such nt Unctions to louiists that it
is 11 wonder to mc it has remained so
long unknown. But they will come,
rest assured of that.
" With regaid to the land deal now
virtually through, it is my intenlioii to
put on that land the cream of Britisli
���settlers, and in this connection will sail
for England at the end ot the present
montli, and -straight away open an
office in London, where I am well
known. I have often wondered why
the belter cla=s of Englishmen have not
more readily come to settle, here, and I
have concluded that proper overtures
or inducements have not been made
to them. In London for tho past ten
years we have heard much about the
prairie provinces, 100 acres free, black
loam soil, Chinook winds, etc., etc.,
and this lias been effective in attracting
immigrants of a class who wanted tome-
thing for nothing. Now I intend to
enlighten them more on this glorious
province, and tho class we will reah
will le those who have capital to go at
lho cultivation of fruit in a businesslike way. I hope be'ore the spring
to be back here again with a largo number of new settlers, settlers you will bo
proud ot as neighbors.
S. Mi Brydges was also interviewed
bv our repr sedative, and he said :
" For i-onie time I have been largely
interested in land along Slocan lake,
and now we have everything in shape
for putting this land on the market.
We are co-operating wilh Major Harris
in exploiting these Slocan lands. It is
just possible working on cxptrienre
gained in other fruit-raising distiicts in
the interim we will bu able to place
���Slocan lands on a more advantageous
basis. It will be our effort to dl��pose
of then: lands to men having sufficient
money   power to clear  for tho plow
practically the whole of tho lands we
COlitrol here, and subdivide them, Then
the i lea would be to 60II to British
tettlers in small pare. Ik. We are going
to have this in n:ind--wo duiutConsider
this a po il' man's country.
" We propose to bring* In Britisli settlers of a better class with moderate
capital, pPOJila who will be able to start
in business without any financial woiry
or strain.       ' -
" In my opinion there is no better
district than the S'oein. It has advantages over parts of the Arrow lakes in
bo far as bettor transportation is con-
C-'rned���a bi," feature in fmit-growing.
" New Denver is unquestionably the
prettiest (pot in the weat, and it should
attract tourist trade. If iny linn succeed in tlieir efforts we will certainly
make it known a3 a tourist resort. In
my opinion tho Improvement Society
should at once pi'jOtted to get out a very
attractive folder descriptive of the attractions. You really have much to he
proud of in your town. Tbey will lie
somewhat surprised in the old country
to learn that your town bus such advantages aa olootrlc light in your streets
and hollies, a waterworks system, two
schools, four churches, good Bldewalks,
nnd 11 newspaper, etc. New Denver
might be in the wilderness for all they

Our Fruit Growers' Column.
The editor of the Slocan Mining Review has kindly placed a column'uf his
paper at the disposal of those interested
in fruit growing and farming, so that
problems that confront us in this neighbourhood may be discussed and the experience gained by individuals may become the guide of all, and so that we
may by taking council together advance
our common interests. It is one of the
cliief charms of agriculture that each
locality has its peculiarities, that no
general rules can be laid down that arc
not subject to modifications to suit the
variations of soils, climate, markets and
conditions. It will bo for us to discover
what are the possibilities nnd what the
limitations that nature has imposed 011
us in thi. dlstrlc1*, for the sooner wo
know our country, tho e loner wo shall
he able to make a thorough suceiss of
our enterprise.
As editor of this column, I must a-dc
the cooperation ol all Ihe fruit grow0'8
of this nelghborhoo '. Lei us hear nf your
successes and failuies, let us hear of
your methods and the Ti suit*! obtained
so that wo may make the utmost of our
country and find the greatest possible
satisfaction from our labors.
It is generally tbo difficulties of life
that develop the best qualities in in and
if thepiesent attack of oyster shell bark
lice on the orohaids and garieiiB of
New Denver brings the fruit growers
together to cooperate for the extermination of the pest, it will probably be
found to have done much good in tlie
long run,
Chief Inspector Cunningham is about
to appoint a local inspector to see that
every tree in the neighborhood is thoroughly sprayed and disinfected, it remains for us to lin.l a way to get this
work done as effectually as possible.
Thore is no question us to the proper
sort of disfnfeotant to use. The mixture
of limo, sulphur and salt when propeily
made has proved its usefulness pa.*t all
possibility of doubt, and now is the time
to uae it rat, lor it will have to be
applied twice during the  winter.
It. is not a very easy spray to make.
His not a pleasant spny to use. It
kills the insects by dissolving tbem and
it begins to dissolve yur skin when it
guts upon it. Moreover, it is not nice
to * moll; it certainly does not improve
your clothes, it can be mado on a
large scile neaily as easily as in a Binall
way, and if the' men who do the work
are properly prepare 1 anl equipped,
they can spray all day without inconvenience. All this proves that tho only
way t-i do this work thoroughly is for
the owners of fiuit trees to get together
and give the work to two men whom
they can depend on, then let the expenses ho divided ace "rding to the time
taken to do each lot of trees.
I believe that, it will bo best to endeavor to got cur lo a! uisp'.ctor, whoever ho may bu', to lake charge of tho
spraying as well, as by so doing lie can
best Batisfy himso'f Ihat the work is
properly done and there can be no shifting of responsibility onto other shoulders.
Besides the two sprayings with lime
sulphur and sal*, there will need to be
ono dining the winter, with strong Bordeaux mixture, i.e., copper sulphate
(bluestono), and lini". Boidoaux
mixture is tho standard spray for
fungus diseases. It is an easy spray
both to make and apply but it is not
easy enough or ample enough for the
grower of a few trees lo bother about
and it wiil bo fai* better to put the whole
matter of spraying iu the hands of two
competent nun. Other sprays are often
ri commended but they are proved not
to bo so good and safe. For example,
lye is often advertised and is paiticular-
ly easy to make, but it damages the
bark uf the tree, rendering it hard and
dry and thereby checking growth.
The fruit trees in Silverton have so
fa1* entirely eso-tped Irom the oyster
Bllell bark louse pest, at least Inspector
Cunningham colli*I not find any, but
the trees wero mossy and suffering
gnatly from neglect, thecowa of Silver-
ton evidently doing*moat of the pruning.
There were also soverul bad eases of
Apple tree Antbraciio**o, a fungus disease which if not loo fir advanced and
deeply rooted, can be cured by Boidoaux
mixture. This disease generally starts
where tho bark is damaged, and such
spotB as where two branches touch and
rub are particularly likely places to find
the disease, therefore in pruning a tree
it is best to cut out one or the other uf
all such branches.

To Elect Delegates
Conservative meetings were held this
week, both in Slocan City and New
Denver, tho meetings being convened
for the purpose of appointing delegates
to attend the Conservative convention
lo be held in Vancouver on the 22nd
and 28 rd inst. Both meetings were
very well attended. At the Slocan City
gathering there were present Wm.
j Hunter, M.P.P., and H. Bohnson, one
of the representatives in the provincial
j house for the city of Victoria. II. D.
Curtis, president of the local organization occupied tho chair.
Tho delegates appointed to attend tho
convention were Denis St. Denis aud
II. D. Curtis.
At the New Denver meeting on Wcd-
nes'ay evening Duncan  McKinnon was
in the chair, and A. R. Fingland was
appointed delegate.
After discussing ihe new departure
instituted by the n -cutivo in disallowing proxies to tlie nro rata strength of
tbe vote of each | iding, the meeting
was unanimous in its condemnation ol
the new arrangement. It was pointed
out that by reason of the convention
being held at Vancouver a full delegation would conveniently be present from
all the coast cities *ind points within
-easy access, but that a fair vote conld
not bo obtained by the Iowdb of tho
Interior fur observe reasons, and by the
elimination of proxies frum outlying
points the coast vote at the convention
could swamp that of the interior.
A strongly worded resolution was
adopted, which will be piesentod by
the New Denver delegate.

Miss Rose Lectured Here.
Miss Laura Rose, who is now delivering lectures throughout the province on
the "Dairy Cow," haa been sent out by
the Dominion Government and in company with J. R. Anderson, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, has conducted
many gathering** which havo been well
attended in different parts of the province, and unquestionably much good
will accrue from the information they
are gratuitously giving to all who are
interested in agricultural pursuits and
the breeding and care of live stock.
J. R. Anderson and Miss Rose arrived
in New Denver on Saturday, but the
deputy minister of Agriculture did not
stay longer than was necessary to make
Miss Rose acquainted with tho delegates
awaiting the parly on the wharf.
The meeting was hurriedly convened
and in half an hour the hall of the Bachelors Club was tilled with an interested
audience, several ladies being present.
Miss Rose, who was thoroughly acquainted with her subject, is a graduate
of the Agricultural College of Guelph,
Out., and after being introduced by the
chairman, Mr. J. C. Harris, she went
straight to work.
The lady's lecture was too lengthy lo
report fully here, but those present
gain ed much knowledge of a cow's anatomy and usefulness, to say nothing ol
her mannerisms. Speaking for quality
and utility she forcibly gave preference
lo the Ayrshire, altliou .li sho had good
words for the Holstein and lh�� Jersey.
Pointers hIio gave to prospective purchasers of tho "family cow" were that
it shou'd have a good appetite, it skin
should be oily and elastic, its nostrils
large, strong forelegs, largo mouth, and
a good space between the forelegs, oily
secretion in ear, her shoulders eloping
out. A cow to bo a good milker must
have s'rong nerves; a cow is constitutionally nervous, and the slightest annoyance to her at milking time would cause
a depletion both iu the quality and
quantity of the milk. It was a remarkable thing, the lecturer also said, that
the cow* ate the greenest of green grass,
whicli in a shoit time became rich rod
bin il which again in a short period
became 11,ilk. Milk was biood aud that
accounted for its nutritious valuo.
Another poiut of interest which the
lecturer told her hearers was as follows:
"Suppose," sho said "that you were
leading or driving a cow which usually
y elded, say, 12 quarts of milk, to its
alud to be milked. Its udder was bulky
and distended and an average yield was
to be expected. But suppose the cow
by accident Bhould fa'l and break its
leg at this juncture, which necessitated
the instant killing of the beast, and
suppose a few minutes later the udder
was opened, also all the veins leading
to it, strange to relate, no veterinary
surgeon or experienced dairyman would
he able to find more than one quart of
milk in the whole anatomy of the cow.
This po'llt the lady made to bring home
to her hearers the great care which
was to be exercised in tho milk making
stajie, i e., the time of milking, and
that practically the milkmaid or dairyman were oesential factors in tho production of the lacteal fluid. To prevent
a cow prematurely drying up it was
necessary lo milk exhaustively at every
A hearty vote of thanks was accorded
to Miss Rose at the conclusion of her
lecture, which Was delivered in a forceful and lucid manner.
Missioner Baynes, writing to wish us
success in our new venture, remarks
that in former times Architecture was
(he Press, and told great thoughts to
the world fh stone, but now'the Press is
Architecture, and is building up tho
world of ideas and usages. He also
tells of the great Gutenberg's "Dream
of the power of the press" ;
Ho was working in hia Oj .1 in the St.
Ahorsgot Monastery, and iieiird a voice
warning him that the power of his
invention would enable bad mon to
propagate then* wickedness and sow
dragon's teeth ; prophesying that men
would profane the art of printing, and
posterity would curse the invention.
He took a hammer and broke the type
in pieces. Another voice bade him
desist from his work of destruction, and
persist in perfecting his invention, declaring that though the occasion ��f evil,
God would make it the fountain of infinite good and give the right the ultimate triumph,

that it would look like a degenerated

was taken (rom Geo. Williamson's ranch

A Creditable Production.
Our attention has been called to an
excellent production entitled "The
Silvery Slocan," an exquisite specimen
of art photography which doeB credit to
the photographers, Messrs. C. F. Nelson
and F. D. Kelly of thiB city, and also
to the printers, "Photo Engravers Ltd,"
Toronto. This little art troasuro will be
productive of much good as an advertising medium and will no doubt tempt
many tourists fo enjoy the beautiful
scenery portrayed in its pages duiing
next summer. There are 22 pages of half
tone-cuts and descriptive matter printed
on fine art paper enclosed in a silver-
grey cover with the words "Silvery Slocan" embossed diagonally across the
centre. Thr. book is published by Chas.
Nelson of New Denver, and should find
a place in every library in tho country.
The price is 50 contB and they will be
on sale on tho 1st of December. It will
prove a delightful Christmas souvenir
to a friend in the oast, and we tako
great pleasure in recommending the
most excellent production which is tho
best of its kind that we have seen for
many years.

Expected to Handed
Down This Week.
Phoenix, Nor. 12.���Like �� bolt from
the blue to the Boundary camo the newa
last night that all the Urge mines and
smelters of this lection   had  decided In
immediately discontinue all operations
completely, and ordore to thia effect
were Immediately put into effect by thu
several mine and smelter managements
operating in the district.
The full import of the above despatch
can hardly bo realized at once, but tho
closing down of the mi nea and smelters
of this great copper section will completely paralyze commerce within a
largo area. Close on a thousand miners
will have been let out by the end of the
present week and no hope of rcaumptlon
in the near future ia given. The last
trains ot ore bave departed and the men
havo all been paid off. if 100,000 was
the sum total of tho wages paid out at
Phoenix this week.
It is strange that all this should be
done and no explanations given to the
public. Many conjectures aro afloat
to account for the shut-down, such as
ama'gamatiou, tightening oi money,
over-production of cupper, and copper
pools, but no official announcement has
been made, and one is eagerly awaited
by mining men throughout (ho Kootenay.
The inauguration of the Canada Zir.c
Company's plant at Nelson will be
watched with keen interest by the mine
ownera of tho Slocan, fir if successful
in ita treatment of crude zinc, the patronage alone from tho Sandon and
Whitewater mines would keep the
operators hustling. Whether tho new
electrical procesa will forever solre tho
local problem of reducing zinc-lead ores
none can yet say with the exception of
iti projector, R. Irving, who la sanguine
of pronounced aucceie. The procesa is
said to have provad a commercial puc-
eess in Sweden, and although the Nelson
plant will not be exactly a replica of the
European model ita essential factors
are there. The progress of tho plant
has been hampered financially for aome
time, but about if 10,000 have been raised in Nelson to put tho project on a
substantial basis and a restart was
made Tuesday morning at tho plant.
It isoxpectol that it will be in operation by the ond o( February or the beginning of March, depending largely
upon the seveiity of the weather.

W-sW  _._*__
- Kncnantea and confused over all that
had occurred In tbe last few moments,
Beverly murmured ber heartfelt congratulations to the Joyous couple. The
orchestra had again ceased playing.
All eyes turned to Baldos���the real
Prince Dantan���who, glass in band,
rose to bis feet.
"Your   royal   highness,   ladles   and
���gentlemen,   Graustark   and   Dawsber-
"I have toon your love by the fairest
gen are entering a new era. I pledge
you my honor tbat never again shall
tbe slightest misunderstanding exist
between them. They shall go forth to
tbelr glorious destiny as one people.
Your gruclous ruler bas seen (it to bestow ber band and affections upon an
American gentleman, your esteemed
prince consort. We all know bow loyally tbe people have approved ber
choice. There ls one present, a trusted
friend of your beautiful princess nnd
lovingly called In your hearts Beverly
of Graustark. Wbose example more
worthy for me to follow than that of
the Princess Yetive? With whom could
I better share my throne aud please
you more than with your belovedAinerl-
can protege? I ask you to drink a toast
to my betrothed, Beverly Calhoun, the
future Princess of Dawsbergen."
Every glass was raised and the toast
drunk amid ringing cheers, The military band crashed out the air so dear
to all Americans, especially to southern hearts. Beverly was too overcome
to speak.
"You ull"��� she exclaimed.
There was a tremendous commotion
in the gallery. People were standing
tn their seats half frightened and
amused, their attention attracted by
the unusual scene. A portly negress,
totally unconscious of the sensation
she was causing, her feet keeping time
to tbe lively strains of music, was
frantically waving a red and yellow
bandanua handkerchief. It was Aunt
Kb nny, und lu a voice that could be
heard all over the banquet hall she
shouted: "Good Lawd, honey, ef der
ain't playln' 'Away Down South In
Dixie!' Hooray! Hooray!"

Hours later Beverly was running,
confused and humbled, through the
halls to ber room, when a swifter one
than she came up and checked ber
"Beverly!" cried an eager voice. She
slackened ber pace and glanced over
her shoulder. The smiling, triumph" nt
face of Baldos met ber gaze. The upper hall was almost clear of people.
Sbe was strangely frightened, distressingly diffident. Her door was not far
away, and she would have reached It
ln*bn Instant later had he not laid a
restraining, compelling hand upon ber
Irin. Then she turned to fnce him, her
lips parted In protest. "Don't look at
me In that way!" ho cried imploringly.
"Come, dearest, come with me. We
can be alone lu the nook ut the end of
the ball. Heavens, I am the happiest
being In all the world. It has turned
"out us I have prayed it should."
She allowed hlm to lead her to tlie
darkened nook. In her soul she was
wondering why her tongue was so powerless. There wore a hundred things
she wanted to say to hlm, but now that
tbe moment hud come she was voiceless. She only could look helplessly at
hlm. Joy seemed to be paralyzed within her. It was as If she slept and
could uot be awakened. As she sank
upou the cushion ho dropped to his
knee before hor, his baud clusplng
hers with a fervor that thrilled her
with life. As he spoke her pulses
quickened and the blood began to race
"I have won your love, Beverly, by
the fairest menus. There bus never
been an hour in which I hnve not been
struggling for this glorious end. You
gave yourself to me wheu you knew I
could be nothing more than the bum-
blest soldier. It wns.the! sacrifice of
love. You will forgive my presumption
���my very insolence, dear one���wheu I
tell you that my soul Is tlie forfeit I

I love you. I can give you the riches
of the world as well us tbe wealth of
the heart. The vagabond dies; your
poor humble follower gives way to the
supplicating prince. You would have
lived in a cot as the guardsman's wife.
You will take the royal palace instead."
Beverly was herself again. The spell
was gone. Her eyes swum wilh happiness and love. Tho suffering hor pride
had sustained was swept Into a heap
labeled romance, and she was rejoicing.
"I hated you tonight, I thought," she
cried, taking bis face ln her hands. "It
looked as though you had played ���
trick on me. It was mean, dear. I
couldn't help thinking that you had
used me as a plaything, and it���it

to pass myself off as a vagabond, but
It would huve been unpurdouuble to

"And she has known for a week?"
cried Beverly ln deep chugrln.
"And the whole court has known."
"I uloue wns blind?"
"As  blind  as the proverb.    Thank
God, I won your love as a vagabond.

She lenncd forward unsteadily, and
he took her ln his eager arms. Their

ecstasy of bliss. After a long time
she lifted ber lids, and ber eyes of
gray looked solemnly Into his dark

you shall have the truth," he laughed
back at hor. "I am still your servant.
My enlistment is endless. I shall always serve your hlghuess."
"Your highness!" she murmured reflectively. Then a Joyous smile of
realization broke over her face. "Isn't
It wonderful?"
"Do you think your brothers will let
me come to Washington now?" he asked teasingly.
"It does seem different, doesn't It?"
she murmured, with a strange little

Dream of Sir Walter Besant  ts C.m
Ing   True.
Could Sir Walter'Besant have lived
until next October he would have
^seen his dream for East London ful
filled far beyond bis expectations. In
that month the People's Palace becomes literally the East End University. The senate of the University o!
London is to recognize the art
science and engineering schools at the
palace as part of the university.
One hardly needs reminding nowadays that the People's Palace in Milt
I'.nd road was largely the outcome ol
"All Soits and Conditions of Men.'
Readers laughed and many scoffed at
lirst at the novelist's idea for a great
institrtion for entertainment and in
struction in the heart of the East End.
"A dream," Baid tho practical man ol
the day. But some dreams como true
ami thnt was oik* of tbem.
"1 have been told by certain friend
ly advisers that tin** story is Inipos
sible," said Sir Walter Besant in hit
preface to "All Sorts and Conditionf
of Men." "1 have therefore stated
the fact on the title-page, so that nc
one may complain of being taken in
or deceived. But I have never been
able to understand why it ia Impossible."
Within a few years of the publication of the novel the People's Palace
was built. Within a few years of the
death of the novelist tho schools of
the palace become part of tho University of London.
As foreshadowed in the book by the
kindly Angela, this palage was to
"awaken in dull and lethargic, brains
n now sense, the sense of pleasure."
Angola resolved that she would give
the people of East London "a craving
for things of which as yet they knew
nothing. She would place within their
reach, at no cost whatever, absolutely
free for all, the same enjoyments'as
are purchased by the rich."

Kentucky   Phonetics
Teges, a little town in Clay county,
Ky., got its name in rather a curious
way. When n new postoffice is to be
established it is customary for the
government to permit the people who
aro interested to choose the name.
A meeting wus called for this purpose and names suggested, harking
away back to Grecian mythology and
down to Mary Ann, and the crowd
was still quarrelling ever a choice
when a county judge got up and remarked: "This in too damn tedious.
It is 11 o'clock and I'm going home."
"That's the very name wo want,"
shouted several in a breath. "We
will call her Tedious."
And ho it was agreed, and the clerk
of the meeting was instructed to so
advise the postal authorities, Ho did
so, but being a phonetic speller !.e
wrote it "Teges."
Historic    House    at    Jedburgh    For
From time to time most interesting
historical relics come before the public through the medium of the auctioneer. The latest example of this
is Queen Mary', house in Jedburgh
3nd some old tapestry which it has
Jedburgh has many points of interest. It has the ruins of an interesting old abbey, and some of the Jet-
hart pear trees, which are believed
to have stood from a period before
the Reformation. According to Mr.
James Tate, it has a sitrong castle at
the highest part of the town, and
some of the mansions were in the form
of bastile houses, the defensive character being requisite as a protection
against English inVfiSors. Of these
houses the most interesting specimen
now remaining is one in which Queen
Mary lay nick for some time utter her,
ride of fifty miles over moor arid moss
to visit Bothwell at Hermitage Cas-|
tie, where he had been wounded by
the banditti of Liddesdalo. It is this
house for which offers are being invited by Messrs. Hominies and Munro,

Tho bod occupied by the queen at
the time of hor illness is now at Ab-
botsford, having been presented to
Sir Walter Scott. There is a mass of
corroborative evidence of the Queen's
visit. In his "History of Scotland"
Buchanan relates the incident connected with Bothwell, aa do many

The tapestry which covered the

The Name In the Bat.
In the fifties of tlie last century there
were two young lawyers, Gould and
Itoblnson, practicing ln the court at
Wlscasset, the shire town of Lincoln
county, Me., who were noted for their
keen wit and Ingenuity In examining
witnesses and also for their many severe thrusts nt each other.
On one occasion, when Robinson bad
finished an unusually able argument
for his client, containing some stinging allusions to the opposing counsel,
Gould, by whom he was followed and
who retaliated, Itoblnson was seen to
take a card, write something ou It,
wblcb was later found to ho the Latin
words caput vacuum (empty head), and
drop It Into Gould's bat on the table.
Gould's curiosity sent him Immediately to Investigate. Going to the table, he took the card from bis hat, aud,
loud enough to bo heard all over the
courtroom, he read, "Caput vacuum."
Turning to the judge, he said, "Your
honor, I claim the protection of tlie
court." The Judge replied, "You may
state your case."
Gould answered: "My case Is this,
your honor: I see my brother at my
right has placed his name in my hat,
and what can be bis motive If not to
claim It as his own? I claim your protection."
The Judge, with his face all smiles,
���nswered, "Mr. Gould, you shall be
protected."���Boston Herald.
Cultivated Especially Ft the Use of
Astronom* a.
The cultivation of certain species of
spiders solely for the fine threads
which they weave for scientific uses
has au important bearing upon astronomy.
No substitute for tbe spider's thread
has yet been found for bisecting the
screw of the micrometer used for determining the post'tons and motions of
the stars. Not only hecause of the remarkable fineness of the threads nre
they valuable, but because of their
durable qualities.
Tho threads of certain spiders rained
for astronomical purposes withstand
changes in temperatures, so that often
In measuring sun spots they are uninjured when the heat Is so groat that
the lenses of (ho micrometer eyepiece
are crneked.
These spider lines are only one-fifth
to one-seventh of a thousandth, of nn
Inch In diameter, compared with which
the threads of the silkworm are large
und clumsy.
Each line Is made up of several thousands of microscopic streams of fluid.
Under the most powerful magnifying
glass they appear true und round.
The work of placing these lines In
the micrometer requires the delicate
touch of experts, who operate with the
aid of microscopes which magnify tho
Hue a thousand times. The lines are
placed parallel with each other and
two one-thousandths of an Inch apart.

In  Regaid to Whether His Patient's
Disease   Is  Fatal?
"Ought the doctor to tell his patient
frankly what is the matter with him,
even though the disease be a fatal
one?" This question, raised by the
censure of a eoroner'H jury of a doctor whose patient, told that he had
consumption, committed suicide, was
discussed by a Hurley street, London,
physician  lately.
Speaking to a Daily Mail representative, be divided patients into (1)
those wbo wont to know the truth,
(2) thos.* who already know, but hope
to be told that things are not so had,
and will gladly swullow a lie; and (3)
those who do not want to know anything.
"The majority of patients," he said,
"leave the doctor no alternative. They
demand a 'yes' or *no.' Take heart
disease. The patient says: 'Is my
heart diseased?' He is paying for
your opinion, and you reply: 'Your
heart is not sound; it is weak. Don't
iiin to catch trains, and do not do
this and that!'
"The trouble is that heart disease
to the public means one thing only-
death. If it meant a variety or more
or less grave affections of the heart
we should not perhaps have those
'stand nnd deliver' questions. Another question is: 'How long shall I
live?' No doctor who knows his business will set a limit by request on
any patient's days. Many a doctor
has boon borne to the grave followed
by hale and hearty men that he 'gave
up' years before."
Doubling the Collection.
In a small town in the midlands
there is a rich congregation, which
is not characterized by liberality.
Time after time the minister had
vainly appealed to his people to contribute more generously to the funds
of th" church. The members would,
Indeed, give something, but it nearly
always was the smallest coin of the
realm that was placed on the plate.
A shrewd Scotchman, who had recently come to the place and joined
the church, was not long in noticing
the state of affairs, and a remedy soon
sugfBRtod itself to his practical mind.
"I'll tell you whnt," he said to one
of the officials, "if you make me treas-
nn.r I'll engaged to double the collection in three months."
His of'er wus promptly accepted,
nnd. sure enough, the collections be-
enn to increase, until by the time he
had stat d there were nearly twice
as mi-ell as formerly.
"How have you managed it, Mr.
Sand ������man?" said the pastor to him
ono day.
"It':* ���* proM ""nrot," returned the
(���ninny Soot, "but I'll tell you in confidence. The fn'k. I saw. maistly gave

It Is a Liver Pill���Many of 'lie
ailments that man bus to contend
with have tlieir origin in a disordered liver, which is a delicate organ,
peculiarly susceptible to the disturbances that come from irregular
habits or lack of care in eating and
drinking. This accounts for <h-i
great many liver regulators now
pressed on the attention of sufferers.
Of these there is none superior to

Girl   Catches   Burglar.
A remarkable story of a girl's pluck
and resource comes from the far north
of Scotland.
Saekvillo House, Bowen-by-Wick,
the residence of Mrs. Sinclair Wem-
yss, was broken into by a tramp, who
is believed to be of German nationality, while the family wore at dinner.
The lirst to discover tho intruder
was the butler, who, after a great
struggle, was knocked down and rendered  unconscious.
Two other servants attracted by the
noise were attacked by the tramp, and
during the scuttle the daughter of the
house, 16 yours old, rushed out of tho
dining-room, and at once took a patent firo extinguisher which was
bunging on the wall from its book
and squirted the chemical contents
Into the face of the burglar.
The man, utterly unnerved by this
unexpected attack, nud believing,
probably, that ho wus blinded for life,
gave a shriek nnd bolted out of tho
[rout door.
He was, however, captured Inter on,
and is now lying in tlie local jail
awaiting trial.
The extinguisher was a cone-shaped apparatus with a knob at the top.
When the knob is struck on the floor
the OxtingUisher can bo held horizontally, and a powerful jet is thrown
a distance of ���,. foot. It was this jet
which settled the burglar.
Grim Jests.
Death-bed jokes are generally not

undertaker who Uud blundered into

and said thatrthe man had "come only
lo I'rn a lively Hood,"���is known to
i*_.* ioidedly apocryphal.
Nevertheless, a remark somewhat of
the same sort, whicli is attributed to
Lord Chesterfield in his last illness,
is undoubtedly authentic. Chesterfield was very, ill, and his death was
only a matter of a few weeks; but his
physician advised thnt ho be token
for an easy drive in his carriage, and
he wont out.
As the equipage was proceeding
slowly along it was met by a
woman who remarked pleasantly to
tho grout Invalid, "Ah, my lord, I
am glad Jo see you able to drive out."
"I am not driving out, madam,"
answered Chestarfield. "I am simply
rehearsing  my  funeral."

Speaker's Dinner Table.
The Speaker's dinner table used to
form part of the furniture given him
by the nation. When on a peerage he
retired into private life the table used
to accompany him. At Lord Syd-
mouth's, Up Ottery, the Devonshire
home of Speaker Addington's descendants, may be seen the table at whicli
Lord Nelson sat as one of the guests.
There is, or used to be, something
on its surface to remind one that the
great admiral while sitting at this
table, after the cloth had been removed, dipped his napkin in a fingci
bowl and with it drew on the polished
wood a rough sketch of .the Mediterranean, indicating with n cross the

that uo country in the world had
such a reserve of experience and
authority in the art of civil Government, and made such little use of it

Fish That Builds a Cocoon
Dr. Gill, of the Smithsonian Institution, describes a peculiar fish found
in tropical Africa nortli of the Congo
basin und known as the Protopteius
Annectens. This fish lives mostly in
shallow, muddy waters or swamps
whicli dry up during the rainless reason. When the water disappears the
fish burrows down into the mud and
builds around itself u sort of cocoon
by menus of a mucous whicli it discharges. In this cocoon it will live
for months at a time in a semi-lethargic condition. It receives air to
breathe through a tube which leads
from the cocoon to the surfnee. When
the dry season ends and the rain *e-
turiis, the fish emerges from 'ts hiding place. Naturalists have known
for a good many yenrs about this
fish, but it was not until 1901 that
J. S. lllodgett succeeded in obta'*}-
ing a number of the nests, which tie
took to England, The fish are quite
large, all the males found by Mr.
Blodgett exceeded 18 inches in length.

The most dangerous counterfeits are
struck from a die and are usually Imitations of ("old coins. Molds of various kinds ure extensively used, but
counterfeits so made ure Inferior to
those made witb a die.
'in counterfeits mnde from a>nold
lettering, milling uud reeding nre usually poor und weight defective. The
coins luck the sharp and clear r*ut np-

made from molds, as It Is an Inexpensive form of counterfeiting. Some fair
specimens have been produced In this
way, but usually they are much lighter
than tbe genuine and if of required
weight differ In diameter or thickness.
Various metals ure used hy counterfeiters, principally platinum, silver,
copper, brass, antimony, aluminium,

Among the most dangerous counterfeits of gold coin are those of a composition of gold, silver and copper.
They are a Ibw grade gold, and (he

of standard gold used hy (he United

are heavily gold plated. When they

The average loss In value to coins
treated Iu this way is from oue-eigh!li

very dangerous, us they are perfeel

been tampered with.
Filling Is most eommouly doue by
sawing tbe coin through from the edge
or reeding, removing the Interior portion ar.d replacing It with a cheap metal. Coins of nil denominations from
quarter eagle to double eagle are sub
jeeted,to this process. When platinum
Is used to replace gold extracted tlie
coin has same weight us genuine. By
this process coins lose four-fifths of
their vulue, ns (he original surfaces are
left only of puper thickness.
When edges have been covered with
gold nnd reeding restored the coin hns
the appearance of being genuine, having correct size nnd weight nnd n fuir
ring. Sometimes the covering of gold
on edges Is so thin that tilling can be
distinctly seen. When other and! less
costly filling tlian platinum Is used
coins nre of light weight and have a
bad ring. If of correct weight they
nre too thick.
Another method of filling Is snwlng
the coin partly lu two, from edge of
feeding, on one side, leaving a thin
nnd thick portion. The thin side of
the coin ls turned back and the gold
extracted from center of thicker portion. The cavity ls filled with buse
metal and sides pressed back Into orlg
Innl position and soldered or brazed
together. It Is difficult to give average loss to coins treated in this manner, as hardly any two seen have tbe
snme amount of gold taken from them.
For detecting counterfeit coin compare Impress, size, weight, ring and
general appearance with genuine coin
of snme period nud coinage. The throe
tests of weight, diameter and thlca
ness should he uppliod. for It Is nl
most Impossible for the oounterfeitei

Ernest Thompson says: The speed
of the coyote is great, and has often
been the subject of admiring comment, but I think it has been overrated. After collecting data of various kinds, such as actual known records of dogs and horses, also the
comparative records of dogs and
hares, or horses and foxes, Wolves
and hounds, hounds and automobiles.
I have attempted a scale of comparative speeds:
Min. Sec.
Blooded   race   horses   covers
a   mile  in   about        1     40
Pronghorned  antelope       1     50
First-class greyhound     2      0
lack   rabbit       2     10
Common fox      2     20
Northern coyote        2     30
Foxhound     2     40
American gray wolf       3       0
Many hunters would set the kit fox
or swift above the greyhound, especially for a short race, but I have had
no personal experience with the species in a chase. The little prairie
cottontail can, I believe, get away
from the swift in a hundred-yard
dash; they cannot keep it up for long,
but their initial velocity is incredible,
and baffles the eye. Not a leg, not a
rubbit is to be seen; nothing but a
white streak across the prairie, till it
promptly disappears in some burrow.
What actually counts in the race is,
as  usual,  the trifle  more  speed  that
each   animal   cun   command.
Coyote  Is Faster.
For example, the gray wolf makes
650 yards to the minute, and the coyote ubout 700. But thnt 50 yards
makes all the difference between living and dying. That 50 yards margin
is probably the foothold on which
the whole coyote race has been built
It is a well-known principle that the
special development of an animal is
ito most variable part. Thus the peculiar bell in the throat of a moose
varies enormously, the bill of tho
long-billed curlew, the neck feather
of the ruff, the spots of the ocelot,
the white bands of the skunk, the
horns of the oik. am so varied that
rarely two nre found just alike. Speed
is one of the peculiarities of the coyote, as it is of the greyhound, and we
must, therefore, look for great variations of rate. I hnvo selected an average for my calculations, but there
are occasional individuals, coyotes of
rare gifts, whose speed and endurance
would put them very near the top of
our  scale.

Reports from the Canadian agents in
various parts of the United States in
reference to the falling off show that
immense tracts of good land in Texas
and other states are being offered for
settlement at lower prices thun they
can be obtained in the Canadian
northwest, where the railway and other facilities are as favorable as they
nre on the other side of the line.
The high prices at which the fertile
lands of the Canadian northwest are
held by speculators is giving an advantage to the holders of American
unoccupied farming areas, which as
a natural .consequence is calculated
to still further divert the volume of
American settlers from the Canadian
to the United States west.
A Burled City.
A Canadian archueologist, who has
for some time been engaged in excavation work on the site of some
ancient buildings in Texas, on
nounees that he has, as the result of
his labors, discovered the undoubted
traces of a large city of great antiquity. There is conclusive proof that
the city flourished at a period anterior to the Aztec epoch. The ruins
are at a considerable depth below thc
surface, and little information is yet
to be obtained. The Aztecs were the
people whom the Spaniards found in
Mexico, and there is evidence that
they displaced a former race, the
Toltecs at an early period. But long
before the times of Cortes there had
been successive waves of population
that had spread over North and
South America. Leaving out the Eskimos of the Polar regions, the primitive Americans are generally regarded as of one race, the earliest settlers coming from Asia. It has been
suggested that America and Asia were
in those pre-historic times connected
by un isthmus where there is now
the Behring Strnits. What was remarkable about the Toltecs and Aztecs was thc high degree of civilization to which they had risen* and
such civilization is in itself proof of
a long period of development. To the
elucidation of this long story a buried city may materially contribute.

The Sun, the Moon and the Tides.
Most persons suppose that the moon
alone is responsible for the phenomenon of tides, but the attraction of the
sun Is also an Important factor. Of
course (he distance of the sun from the
earth Is unthinkably greater than that
of tbe moon, but Its mass Is so enormous tbat it bas a considerable tide producing influence. The force which the
sun exerts Is the same on both sides of
the earth at the same time, the tide
producing force of the great orb being
about four-tenths that of the moon. At
tbe time of both new and full moons

New York Herald of a sporting and
exploring trip on the Labrador coast,
gives a list of streams and bays in
which great quantities of salmon and
sea and brook trout are to be found.
At various points on the coast caribou
are plentiful, and at others there is!
good bear shooting, an abundance of
wild fowl, etc.
In the course of his interesting article Mr. Mott accuses the Newfoundland Government of laxity in the matter of enforcing the game laws. He
It seems a pity that His Mujesty's
rivers should bo despoiled of their
yield of salmon simply because of negligence on the part of the Newfoundland Government .and a glaring
insufficiency of proper wardens. Sir
Archibald Douglass, now stationed at
Portsmouth, Kngland, did all he could
to prevent this evil. His officers likewise; but there remains a stupid "nonchalance" on th_ part of the Newfoundland Government itself. In their
own island they do not seem to care
whether salmon are netted illegally
in their rivers or not, and the same
holds true of the caribou;
A great mnny of the Newfoundland skippers take their wives on the
Labrador; poor, thin women, that
cook for sometimes ten or twelve
men, and at night, by the flare of a
kerosene torch, help to clean and salt
the day's take of cod. The quarters
on the average schooner ure dirty and
Bmall; four men, including the skipper and mute, sleeping aft, two men
to a narrow bunk. Just forward, with
only a scantily boarded partition
(rarely a solid bulkhead) between, is
the after, or -jnain fish hold. The
stench is therefore overpowering to
one not used to it; and when on
rainy, cold nights, tho little, but always most efficient stove is set going
to red bent and * ie crew gather round
in their wet, slime soaked clothes the
reek is nauseating���but healthful.
The struggle for a bare existence,
the continual slavery of the sea, creates a callousness in these characters
��� usually seen in their utter carelessness of thoir own lives. Let it be
known thnt "de fusli" are in a certain bay, or on a certain stretch of
shore, and they will up sail, night or
day, fog or storm, and away. Ice is
thick on the const all through the
fishing months, and fogs hover on
the horizon continuously.
The sort of warden that is appoint
ed for a certain river is somewhat as
follows���I describe John Smith, at
the River of Ponds: A long, lank individual, with no common sense-
else he would not have taken the job
of four months' work at $40 for tbe
whole���a man that will use his own
nets under cover of darkness' on the
plea that he has to be on the river
io do duty, meanwhile shoving In
groundless complaints against those
who  try  to thwart  him.
Take it all-in-all, to "do" the Labrador on a schooner of one's own
(chartered, if you prefer), in quest of
sport, curious and interesting people,
glorious scenery, most healthful .climate and in comparative safety, is
a delightful way of spending three
months. Lot a man who seeks sport
and is willing to take the many discomforts in the way of bad weather
and high winds, charter a schooner
such as I had; let him engage a
crew that work well together, and,
most important of all, a "clever" skipper, and I can assure him of royal
deeds  with  rod  and  gun.
To add briefly. T would suggest that
a sportsman might begin his cruises
northward from Portaux^Bosques,
Nfld., and fish the west coast rivers
upward rapidly. We did this and
found some fine streams, where the
fishing is undisturbed by the flock
commonly called "sports" from the
States  and  England.
On a trip of this kind one gets on
insight of the cheerless lives of the
fisher folk up in the barren North.
Nearly all work and no play. Yet
thev live hardily and the rough hewn
natures have much that is generous
and kind. For evample, when we arrived at Tub TTnrbor a group of fishermen came aboard. They had seen
our American ensign and thought
that we were a trader and that it was
our house flag. We had no chart of
Gros Water���*Bnv, and one of them
at onco offered the worn, tattered
sheet that he used on his own vessel.
The chance that he might not see it
again never entered his mind. He
would not steal from us; whv should
we carry off what he loaned? That
is thp way those people argue.
Vancouver's  Chinatown.
Vancouver has a gigantic Chinatown���a Chinese theatre, and a large
amount of real estate in the city owned
by the Celestials���in fact, one of the
wealthiest Chinamen in America resides in Vancouver. A $500 poll tax
is assessed against the Chinese who
desire to vote. The shortage of labor
has even brought up a suggestion that
the tax be repealed for a year or so,
until the market is supplied. The
scarcity of labor is on acute problem,
but the Socialist and Labor vote has
to be considered. This silenced those
who would otherwise declare openly
what they secretly desire in the way
of labor legislation. Some radical
citizens of Vancouver, it is said, are
willing to go through an earthquake
to eradicate  the Celestials.
In some of the manufacturing establishments an effort has been made
to employ the lanky, turbaned Sikhs.
Many of these will eat no meat and
have a half-starved appearance, which
is no endorsement of a vegetable diet.
Labor unions are against Hindoos to
the last round, some of the white
employes flutly refusing to work with
them. These dark-skinned strangers
have little desire to speak the English tongue, and their utter ignorance
of the prevailing language makes it
very  difficult  to  employ   them.
Deprived of His Flogging.
The lord mayor's barge is being
broken up for firewood nt Deptford.
The first lord mayor to deviate from
the customary procession by water
from Westminster hall was Alderman
Wood in 1810, mud superstitious people thought this wicked innovation was
the cause of a curious disaster that befell him. During his term of office
Wood comjnltted a journeyman sugnr
baker to jail for leaving his employment in a dispute ubout wag**s. But
he forgot to specify thnt the prisoner
should be also flogged, as the statute
provided. On his release the sugar

action agulnst the lord ninyor and recovered "moral nud Intellectual damages" for being deprived of his (logging! This episode illustrates the

the plant from Sandon to New Denver
where the next issue will be published.

interests of the Slocan nt heart, should
find a place on every exchange table in

New Denver for a number of years
bad an able, lively and well conduct! d
weekly newspaper, owned and edited by
the brilliant B. T. Lowery. the recognised premier jester anil humorist of
the province. Silver lead mining languished in the Slocan, times became dull
in New Denver, and Mr. Lowery was
compelled to move to another town,
where tho opportunities for making a
living and something over were greater.
and New Dt-nyer wus left for eeveral
years without a paper. It was found
out a year or two since that the land
along Slocan lake in the vicinity of New
Denver was in every way suited for
fruit raining aud small fanning -The
result has been that many orchards,
gardens and Bmall farms have been established in the neighborhood of New
Denver, and they givj the people of
New Denver another means of making
a livelihood in addition to mining and
lumbering. As a result of this Now
Denver is "Ueginning to enjoy a new
prosperity, which promises to.l*e listing
because the people do not longer have
to rely entirely on mining ami lumbering, which bave their periods of liveliness anil dullness, their ups and their
downs. A Sign Ol thi:* prospeii'y is reflected in the (act that New Denver is
again to have a newspaper, for J. J.
Atherton has removed the Slogan Mining Review from Sandon to New Denver
on the invitation of the improvement
club of the latter town. Sandon has
two papers anil can afford to dispense
with one of them. Tho founding of
.orchard*-, gardens and small farms in
various portions of the Kootenays, and
nearly every portion of it is suitable for
such purposes* is certain to bring renewed and increasoil prosperity ill many
portions besides the section around New
Denver. Rosslivnd'e vicinity is especially welt provided with land which will
grow most anything that can be succes-
fully cultivated in the temperate zone,
and the time is not far distant when
every available acre around this city for
many miles will he occupied and cultivated. This will b ing a larger prosperity lo Rossland, as it. has to New
Denver, and therefore those most interested in the welfare of Rossland should
aid in all possible ways in securing the
settlement and cultivation of the land
hereabouts.���Kosilaiul Miner.

S eiety," anil the rcintroduction of a
'newspaper in our midst. It would also
enable us to show appreciation ol neighbor Stege's enterprise in making improvements to the principal hotel in

and comfortable for tho reception of
great influx of louris's expected next
Bummer to visit our glncier.
This ia merely a suggestion which I
Bliouhl like to see adopted, and lima
bring together men of all shades of opinion, to spend a convivial evening, and
to break tho present monotony.
