The Duty on Zinc Has
Been Abolished.
It Means the Revival of Mining and
Prosperity for Sandon.
New York, Feb. 11.��� The Board of Supervisors appointed by the U. S. treasury to take testimony at Kansas City as to what duty should be charged on zinc
ore imported into the Slates, have reported to Washington, and an official announcement has been made that "calamine embraces carbonate, oxide and
silicate of zinc, and is therefore not dutiable. Sulphide of zinc, known as Black
Jack, is not a mineral within the meaning of the American customs regulations
and is therefore not liable to duty."
Tbe latest edict of the Postmaster
general, is that all newspapers must be
no larger than 24 x 84 in., and must be
folded to at least one-eighth this size
before being received by postmasters.
The document adds: "Publishers will
be given until the 1st ol March next in
oidtr lo arrange for the necessary addition to tlieir presses or otherwise provide for conforming to this regulation."
Now, wouldn't that cork you! How
are we to raise about $700 between now
and tlie 1st of March to graft a patent
officially ordered folder on to our old
$100 slap-it-on and squeeze-me-tiglit ?
Gentle reader bring in your ads befoie
we succumb to the  autocratic   edict.
The above despatch Ib without doubt
the most cheering message which ever
came to Sandon,
It means that all of our zinc mines
will once again resume with renewed
activity. It means the resumption of
work at the famous Lucky Jim and the
Slocan Star, and it means that the only
market on this continent for zinc will
be thrown open for B.C. ores in general
and Sandon shipments in particular.
It would be impossible at this moment
to estimate the number of tons of this
ore on eight around the Sandon ramp.
VV. R. Ingalle, the greatest authority on
zinc extant conservatively estimates
30,000 tons of Al zinc In the district.
At tho Lucky Jim we doubt il even Mr.
Hughes, the virtual owner, could figure
the amount broken down and on sight.
Men who have worked there Bay there
are over 2,000 tons in the two glory holes
and that everywhere is blocked with
ote. There are seventeen cars of Lucky
Jim ore now lying at Kaslo. This and
other properties have heen closed down
pending the tettlement of the duty
question, and as this has now been
settled to our intense satisfaction, we
have tlie best of reasons for asserting
that mining activity will ensue in the
district never before equalled.
Prior to the termination of the case
mentioned in the above despatch, any
zinc ore imported into the United
States from British Columbia, a duty
of 20 per cent had to be paid thereon.
In consequence of their being no Canadian market and the prohibitive duly
on zinc iu the states, the zinc mining
industry in the Slocan has been absolutely dead for some time. Now for the
revival! The principal smelters in the
states to which zinc has been shipped
from the Slocan have been at Pueblo,
Colo., and Iola, Kan., but we venture
to predict Ihat from now on the twenty-
nine smelters in the states will vie
wilh each other to Becure B.C. ores in
preference to the higher-priced Joplin
and other Kansas ores.
There are many mines around the
S.union tamp which have a large amount
of BlacK Jack stowed away, and some
of our smaller leasers, too, are in for a
good thing. The boys who lately took
a lease ou the Payne have five cars ready
for shipment. Yesterday practically a
white elephant, to-day a valuable product.
The Lucky Jim and the Slocan Star
are the heaviest shippers to date. Geo.
Hughes is at this moment a multimillionaire.
The 81oran offers unrivalled inducement f jr capital at this moment, and as
there aro numerous properties with
large bodies of this ore on sight, we confidently anticipate a big iusIi the forthcoming spring.
A-i denoting the trend of capital towards Sandon, a well-known group ol
Chicago financiers are negotiating to
purchase the land grant owned by the
K. & S. railway 'Co,
A number of capitalists from Djnny-
brook, N. D. are about to visit this
camp and other points in  the Slocan.
The future prospects of Sandon are as
bright aa it is possible to conceive. The
tide has turned, And capitalists aro invited to come in and help   themselves.

Mr C. Cliffe, the well-known editor
of the Sandon Review of bygone days
wrote us from Sauk St Marie, telling
of the satisfaction the return ofMcBride
and Hunter has brought to him.
j Times must be getting better. We
saw a poker game going on one night
this week, with one of the players holding a Winchester repeater across his
knees. Old Nick was playing so perhaps that had something to do with it.
We'were relating some rather tall

Speaking of tall stories, the following
from Mining Topics will be appreciated
by our mining  readers:
"Stories of birds with gold in their
craw or gizzards are multiplying. Mining Topics is not out gunning for them,
but they fly this way and are permitted
to roost on the cold edge of linotype

Bwallow the stories that is no evidence
that tbe birds didn't swallow the gold.
So here is the latest as told by the
White Pine News:
'Chickens have done some successful
prospecting in the vicinity of Ely, Nevada. Valuable nuggets were taken
from the craws of some of the poultry
dressed for the Christinas feasts, and
the result has been a rush for placer
John Stemper, the butcher, while
cleaning poultry for tho Christmas
trade, found several nuggets as large as
beans. Another nugget valued at iffi
was found by D. Mabouey of the Famous restuarant in the craw of a young
rooster which he had bought from Mr.
Stemper. Tbe discovery made the restuarant man very anxious to discover
the name of the perBon from whom Mi.
Stemper bought the chickens. Mr.
Stemper said that according to his
recollection the rooster was one of a
number of chickens be had purchased
from J. II. Simpson. These chickens
ran in the yard of the Simpson residence
on High street and on the hill tack of
the house. The other chickens from
which nuggets were taken were bought
from Steptoe ranchers.' "

The babies were crying for milk several days last week. A snowslide which

building at Cody last Friday shovelling
snow, when he noticed a slide start high
up the hill. After shorting to some

flat on lhe roof ami encircled the flue
with his arms. Thu slide did not strike
the hou-e, but the spray covered him
for the depth of two feit. It was worth

Woman Who Was Burled
Alive Relates Her Awful
Sandon waa visited with a gigantic
snowslide on Friday morning last which
completely demolished some valuable
buildings at the lower end of the town,
and w Inch nearly had a tragical ending
for one of the residents nf that quarter,
Several citizens noticed the avalanche
tearing down tho mountain side, but
so swiftly did i* Bpeed on it*i journey of
destruction that a timely alarm was
futile. In a moment it had crashed
across the Reco Avenue, hearing on
its crest huge I holers unci mis'cllan
eous flotsam gathered en route. Like a
���trsw that subs*antial structure the
Union Hotel was brushed esi !e, nnd it
turned complete y on end. Continuing
it surged across the level roadway and
stove in Ihe famide of the restaurant,
butcher and baker shops owned by
Jas. Woods, and also did considerable
damage tohous-snn the same si le of
t'-e street. Before reaching the town
tho avalanche swii led across both tracks
of the W. & S railway and swept away
the unoccupied cabin o.vned by Jas.
Bell; it also s'mck some cittiges adjoining the Union hotil, and these were
completely buried. From there down
the gulch a scene of desolation is to be
w tnessed, but it is a mercy that all of
the cabins there were unoccupie '. The
slide reached to the doo*s of some of
the tenanfed houses opposite, and slight
damage was done in pi ices. The Kootenay Hotel, although but eight paces
from and running parallel with Wood's
store, sto<d unscathed, but it wa* coin
pletely roveied with spray, much of
which poured as a cloud into the bar.
The fire shel a few feet away, which
contained a hose reel and other apparatus, was completely buried.
Direc'ly the avalanche waa noticed,
all theslsrms in the town weie sounded.
Word passed from lip to Up thai a
woman named Macdonald who resided
in a cottage adjoining the Union Hot, 1
was buried b- neath the debr's, and
instantly all was excitement. A bundled men rushed across the inert pile
carrying shovels to engage in tl e re scue.
Distant rumblings warned those opeia
eiug on ihe debris that a lecond edi'i* n
of tbe avalanche might bear down upon
and engulf them ut any moment. A
look-out gang was speedily established
to cry a limi'ly warning, and as bad h.ck

Bennett then directed all energy on the
fifteen feet of packed snow which covered the ruined cottage wherein ley the
nnfortuna'e woman. Ii was not thought
for a moment that their cffoits would
be rewarded, but the g��ng worked laboriously with that object in view. Hundreds of tons of snow were shovelled
away, but the object of 8. arch remained undiscoveied for ov-ran hour. At
last the woman's hand was seen niotru
ding fr in the snow, and on testing her
pulse, wonderful to relnte, sho wns yet
live. She was still pinned down be
neutli some scimtl ng which was covered w ith five f et of closely packc d snow.
Theio was a gr at amount of labor
io be expenelel before the woman could
be relea ed. Shovels and ba s woie
plied vigorously I"1' another five minutes, and then Chief Benne.t by sheer
at ength pi imed up tbe woodwork which
hell her down and Bhe was ei.agged
out, alive���but unconscious.
It was qu'ckly discerned that the impact uf the avalanche had torn thr. ugh
the back of the house and crushed down
the bedstead on which Bhe was tdeepint/,
d pinned her to the floor. V\ hil,-t
she was miraculously left a few in. he*
of breathing space, the pre-sure of
weight above was so ter. ilie, it is lit le
short of marvellous that she withstood
death for so long.
A few minutes in the fiesh air and
the woman regained comciouseeis
Upon being questioned she vaguely in
tiraated she was the only occupant at
the time of the disaster. She was a
mass of bruises from head to foot,, and
as her nerves weio in a Bhaeter.d ton-
dition, shu was couvejed with all speed
to the hospital.
When the excitement had subs'ded,
Mr. J. M. Han is observed to our reporter that catastrophes sometimes
work -round for the best. He instanced
the fact that seven yeais ago the ground
upon which the enormous pile of snow
now lad was studded with dwellings.
These were all wiped away in the disastrous fire of 1000. Had this point still
been the residential section of the city,

the on y dangerous point in the city,
and it consequently required considm-
ahle nerve of any pir-on to reside in
the zone of danger after a thaw had set
in. Most of the families moved into the
businrBS portion of tbe city shortly
after, and us it is considered to be as
secu e from a snowslide as a town on
the prairie, a feeling of security was
soon preelominant. Towards evening
the citizens noted w'th pardonable satisfaction tha' the mercury wss rapidly
falling, and rre the sun went down a
hard frost bad set in. It was a grateful
populace w hi-h retired to sleep with a
sen-e of seiuity on Fiiday night.

Our rep irter visited Miss K. Macdonald at the Miner's Union Hospital on
Mondav, and although she was still in
bed she was almost convalescent. Speaking of her frightful experience, she said
she had been timid of a snowslide for
the past few days, and in consequence
it was very late before Bhe could mako
up her mind>to retire to her bedroom
the night before, A year or so ago a
slide had occurred ut the same place,
when the snray from it covered her
cottage. The snow being deeper this
year than on that occasion she waa
genuinely alarmed ill consequence.

The first thing I realized was that I waa

fear was that it was too early for anybody to be around and that 1 could not

afterwards I was b.ittling with approaching unconsci u*niss. Oil, it waa

were playing, and a sledge hammer wes

mHERE was a soft, warm, yellow glow to the world wbeu
Beverly Calhoun next looked
upon It. The sun from his
throne lu the mountain tops wus smiling down upon tbe valley the night
bad ravaged while he was on the other
aide of the earth. The leaves of the
trees were a softer green, the white of
the rocks and the yellow of the road
were of a gentler tint. The brown
aud green reeds were proudly erect
once more.
Tbe stirring of the mountain men
bad awakened Aunt Fanny, aud she lu
turn called ber mistress from tbe surprisingly peaceful slumber Into which
perfect health had sent ber not so
many hours before. At the entrance
to the Improvised bedchamber stood
buckets of water from tbe spring.
"We have very thoughtful chambermaids," remarked Beverly while Aunt
Fanny was putting her hair Into preventable shape. "And an energetic
cook," she added as the odor of broiled meat came to her nostrils.
"Ah caln' see nothln' o' dat beastes,
Miss Beverly, an' Ah���Ah got mah suspicions," said Aunt Fanny, with sepulchral despair In her voice.
"They've thrown the awful thing
Into the river," concluded Beverly.
"Dey's cookln* hit!" said Aunt Fanny
"Good heaven, no!" cried Beverly.
"Go and see, this minute. I wouldn't
eat that catlike thing for the whole
world." Aunt Fanny came back a few
minutes later with the assurance that
they were roasting goat meat. The
akin of the midnight visitor was
stretched upon the ground not far
"And how Is be?" asked Beverly,
Jamming a hatpin through a helpless
bunch of violets.
"He's ve'y 'spectably skun, jro' highness."
"I don't mean the animal, stupid."
"Yo' mean 'at MIsteh Goat Man?
He's settln' up an' chattin' as If nothln'
happened. He says to me 'at we staht
on ouah way Jes' as soon as yo* all eats
yo' b'eakfus'. De bosses Is hitched
up an' "-
"Has everybody else eaten? Am I
the only one that hasn't?" cried Beverly*
" 'Ceptln' me, yo' highness. Ah'm ts
hungry as a poah man's dawg, an' "���
"And he is being kept from the hospital because I am a Ia��y, good for
nothing little��� Come on, Aunt Fanny;
we haven't a minute to spare. If be
looks very 111, we do without breakfast."
But Baldos was the most cheerful
man In the party. He was sitting with
bis back against a tree, his right arm
In a sling of woven reeds, his black
patch set upon the proper eye.
"You will pardon me for not rising,"
he said cheerily, "but, your highness,
I am much too awkward this morning
to act as befitting a courtier In the
presence of his sovereign. You have
slept well?"
"Too well, I fear. So well, In fact,
that you have suffered for it. Can't
we start at once?" She was debating
within herself whether It would be
quite good form to shake hands with
the reclining hero. In tbe glare of the
broad daylight he and his followers
looked more ragged and famished than
before, but they also appeared more
picturesquely romantic.
"When you have eaten of our humble
fare, your highness���the last meal at
the Hawk aud Raven."
"But I'm not a bit hungry."
"It Is very considerate of you, but
equally unreasonable. You must eat
before we start."
"I can't bear the thought of your suffering when we should be hurrying to
a hospital and competent surgeons."
He laughed gayly. "Oh, yon needn't
laugh. I know It hurts. You say we
cannot reach Ganloeik Tiefore tomorrow? Well, we cannot stop here a
minute longer thau we��� Oh, thank
you!" A ragged servitor had placed a
rude bowl of meat and some fruit before her.
"Sit down here, your highness, and
prepare yourself for a long fast. We
may go until nightfall without food.
Tbe game is scuree, nud we dare not
venture far into the hills."
Beverly sat at his feet and daintily
began the operation of picking a bone
with her pretty Angers and teeth. "I
am sorry we have no knives and forks,"
be apologized.
"I don't mind," said she. "I wish
you would remove that black patch."
"Alas, I must resume the bated disguise. A chance enemy might recognize me."
"Your���your clothes have been mended," she remarked, with a furtive
glance at his long legs. The trousers
had been rudely sewed up and no bandages were visible. "Are you���your
legs terribly hurt?"
"They are badly scratched, but not
���erlouBly. The bandages are skillfully
placed," he added, seeing ber look of
doubt.   "Ravone Is a genius."
"Well, I'll hurry," she said, blushing deeply. Goat hunter though he
was and she a princess, bis eyes
gleamed with tbe Joy of her beauty,
and his heart thumped with a most
unruly admiration. "You were very,
very brave last nlgbt," sbe said at last,
and her rescuer smiled contentedly.
Sbe was net long In finishing tbe
rude but wholesome meal and then
announced her readiness to be on the
way. With the authority of a genuine
princess she commanded him to ride
inside the coach, gave Incomprehensible directions to the driver nnd to the
escort and would listen to none of his
protestations. When the clumsy vehicle was again lu the highway and
bumping over the ridges of flint the
goat hunter was beside his princess on
the rear seat, bis feet upon tbe opposite cushions near Aunt I-'uuuv, a well
arranged bridge of boxes and bags providing support for bis loug legs.
"We want to go to a hospital," Beverly had said to the driver very much
as she might have spoken bad she beeu
In Washington. Sbe was standing
bravely tieside the fore wheel, her face
tlushe'd und eager. Buldos from his
serene position on the cushions watched her with kindling eyes.   Tbe grlz-
"Oh\ my father'never killed a man!"
cried Beverly in devout horror.
"Yet Graustark reveres bis mighty
prowess on the field of battle," said
be, half laconically.
"Oh," she murmured, remembering
that she was now the daughter of
Yetive**- father. "I see. You are not
a���a���a mere murderer, then?"
"No. I have been a soldier. That la
"Thank heaven!" she murmured and
was no longer afraid of him. "Would
���would a pardon be of any especial
benefit to you?" she asked, wondering
bow far ber Influence might go with tbe
Princess Yetive.
"It Is beyond your power to help
me," he said gravely. She was silent,
but It was the silence of deep reflection. "Your highness left the castle
ten days ago," he said, dismissing himself us a subject for conversation.
"Have you kept In close communication with Edelweiss during that time?"
"I know nothing of what Is going ou
there," she said cjtilte truthfully. She
only knew thut sjie had sent a message to the Princess Yetive apprising
ber of her arrival tn St. Petersburg

zled driver grinned and shook bis bend
despairingly. "Ob, pshaw! You don't
understand, do you? Hospital���h-o-s-

still be shook bis bead. Others in the
motley retinue were smiling broadly.
'���Speak to him In your owu languuge,
your highness, and he will be sure to
uuderstaud," ventured tbe patient.
"1 am speaking lu my���I mean, I prefer to speak lu English. Please tell
him to go to a hospital," she said confusedly. Baldos gave a few Jovial Instructions, and then tbe raggedest
courtier of them all banded Beverly
Into the carriage with a grace that
amazed her.
"You are the most remarkable goat
hunters I have ever seen," she remarked In sincere wonder.
"And you speak the -most perfect
English I've ever heard," he replied.
"Oh, do you really think so? Miss
Grimes used to say I was hopeless.
You know I had a���a tutor," she hastily explained. "Don't you think It
strange we've met no Axphaln soldiers?" she went on, changing the subject abruptly.
"We are not yet out of the woods,"
be said.
"That was a purely American aphorism," she cried, looking at him intently. "Where did you learn all your
"I had a tutor," he answered easily.
"You are a very odd person," She
sighed. "1 don't believe that you are
a goat hunter at all."
If I were not a goat hunter I should
have starved long ago," he said. "Why
do you doubt me?"
"Simply because you treat me one
moment as If 1 were a princess aud
the next as If I were a child. Humble
goat hunters do not forget their station in life."
I have much to learn of the deference due to queens," he said.
"That's Just like 'The Mikado' or
'Pinafore,'" she exclaimed. "I believe you are a comic opera brigand or
a pirate chieftain, after all."
"I am a lowly outcast," he smiled.
"Well, I've decided to take you into
Edelweiss and"���
"Pardon me, your highness," he said
firmly. "That cannot be. I shall not
go to Edelweiss."
"But I command you"���
"It's very kind of you, but I cannot
enter a hospital���not even at Gaulook.
I may as well confess that I am a
hunted man and that the Instructions
are to take me dead or alive."
"Impossible!" she gasped, Involuntarily shrinking from him.
"I have wronged no man, yet I am
being hunted down as though I were
a beast," he ssld, his face turning haggard for the uiomeuit. "The hills of
Graustark, the plateaus of Axphaln
and the valleys of Dawsbergen are
alive with men who are bent ou ending my unhappy but iucouvenient existence. It would he suicide for me to
enter any one of your towns or cities.

"This sounds like a elreum. Oh, dear
me, you don't look like a hardened
criminal," she cried.
"I am the humble leader of the faithful band who will die with me when
the time comes. We are not criminals,
your highness. In return for what
service I may have performed for you,
I Implore you to question me no further. Let me be your slave up to the
walls of Ganlook, and then you may
forget Baldos, the goat hunter."
"I never can forget you," she cried,
touching bis Injured arm gently. "Will

"It Is a very gentle wound, and I love
It so that I pray It may never heal."
She looked away suddenly.
"Tell me one thing," sbe said, a mist
coming over her eyes. "You soy they
are hunting you to the death. Then-
then your fault must he a grlevoUB oue.
Huve you���have you killed a man?"
sbe added hastily. He was silent for
a long time.
"I fear I have killed more than one
man," he said In low tones. Again sbe
shrank Into the comer of the coach.
"History says thut your father was a
brave soldier and fought In many battles," he went on.
"Yes," she suld, thinking of Major
George Calhoun.
"He killed men them, perhaps, as I
have killed them." he said.    ���

Timidity That  Is Fatal
Timidity also hinders freedom.
Thousands of able young men and
young women in this country are ambitious to make the most of themselves, but are fettejed completely, or
held back, by nn abnormal timidity
a lack of self faith. Tliey feel
great unused powers within, struggling for expression, but fear that
they may fail. The fear of being
brought forward or egotistical seals
their lips, palsies their hands, and
drives their ambition back upon itself to die of inaction. Tliey do not
daiv to give up a certainty tor an
uncertainty; they are afraid to push
ahead They wait and wait, hoping
thai some mysterious power may liberate them and give Inem confidence
aud  hope.
Many people are imprisoned by ignorance. They never get the freedom
which education (fives. Their mental
powers are never unlocked, They
have not the grit to struggle (in
emancipation, the slam na to make up
for the lack of early training, or
they think they are to old to begin.
The price of freedom seems too high
to pay at their time of life, and so
they   plod   upon    a    low   plain    whe'n
they  could have gained the  heights
where superiority dwells.
others are bound by superstition or
the fetters of prejudice which make
tlieir li ve tt narrow unci mean. These
are the most hopeless of all. Tliey

know they ure not free, hut they
think other people aie in prison.���

Several varieties of the so called

among the novelties offered hy florists,

green and growing.
Tlie old tlipe pilgrims, who brought
back this plant with them from the
Holy Land, told wonderful tales of Its
power to bloom out on Christmas day
and gave It the name of resurrection
flower. Another old legend names It
St. Mary's rose, because It is said that
when Joseph nnd Mary were fleeing
from Egypt oue of these flowers grew
from every spot where they halted to

Famous  HeatluK  Place of the  Great
Dead   ot   France.
In the center of the most populous
and hardest working part of Paris lies
Pere-la-Chaise. tbe city of the dead.
All fetes of the faubourg beat against
the walls of this spot, which has its
own fete twice a year. Within less than
a century this cemetery has become
the abode of at least 800.000 dead. It
formerly formed a part of the domains
of the bishopric of Paris under tbe
name Champ Leveque. Under Louis
XIV. It was known nt Mont Louis. At
last, May 21. 1804, the official opening
ot the new necropolis took place.
The white mausoleums among the
green trees remind the visitor of an
oriental city, but It Is estimated that In
twenty yenrs tliere will not be space
enough for one lone dead man. A calculation has heen made which would
point to the fact that the sum of $80,-
000,000 Is represented In these last
sleeping places of man. Even though
the French may not always be grateful
during tbe life of tlieir illustrious children, there Is a mighty attempt after
death to prove appreciation. Among
the famous men who are today lying
calm and beloved In Pere-la-Chalse are
Rossini, Bellini, Chopin, members of
tho famous Carnot family, Mollere, La
Fontaine, Delacroix and Balzac.
Here the tomb of Helolse and Abe-
lard la visited continually by large numbers of pilgrims, and there is never an
end to the sentiment around the Gothic
monument rising from tbe bright hued
geraniums and roses. Notwithstanding
the Iron railing, many a lover carries
from the hallowed spot a petal blown
across by the obliging breeze. Except
for one section, where a considerable!
number of artists and authors, brothers
In beauty aud Inspiration, are grouped,
the tombs succeed each other without
much order. There Is a single monument erected by the state to the soldiers killed In the siege of Parle.

A Series of Articles Descrlb-

�� and their Influence.
Managing  Editor   of the   "Gladstone
Tliere is an attraction about nevvB-
pnper life Hint draws many men,
wliu, tlicnigli tliey huve never been actually connected witli any publication, have had the inclination since
their early years to wield a pen in
n position where the wielding would
see the light of day, giving the writer
an opportunity to advocate tlie principles of progress and enlightenment
which he feels within him. It goes
without saying that any man who
has an honest inclination for the
newspaper life is a man of good principles ; an honest man fears no publicity, and is willing to stand up foi
��� that which is good, therefore, we say,
a man who has a standing desire to
enter the newspaper arena never does
so with the idea of lowering the
newspaper ideals, but with the idea
of adding his individuality to the efforts of his brethren of the fourth
westa,te, to the end that something may
be done for the general good of mankind.
Many men have lived their allotted
span with this desire always beckoning them, and yet lack the opportunity to gratify their ambition, while
others identify themselves with the
profession after their years would indicate approaching middle age, and
by their aptitude and energy, make it
a success from the start. Of this
number is the subject of our sketch
Mr. Geo. P. Minaker, editor and
manager of the Gladstone Age, who
has made a record in the business of
which he may feel supremely satisfied. Since taking the "Age" office in
hand just a year ago, he has almost
doubled the business, and has also
conducted the paper in such a manner that it has made a secure place
for itself in the regard of its subscribers. Of its future success there is
not a shadow of doubt.
Mr. Minaker, was born in Cobourg,
Ontario, on December 2G, 1862. He
was educated in the public Bchools
of that thriving manufacturing town,
and completed his school education
in the Collegiate Institute at the
same place. At the age of eighteen
he started in the mercantile business,
came west to Gladstone in 1898 and
was in the employ of the well known
firm of Galloway Bros, for about
seven years, leaving this to occupy
the editorial chair. He hns associated with him him in this venture Mr.
Yuill, now principal of the public
schools nt Neepawa, a mnn whom we
hope to see drawn into active newspaper work at some time.
Mr. Minaker wns married in 1884
to Miss Anna T. Lazier, of Belleville,
and the happy union has been blessed with five children, the oldest now
a young lady of twenty years.
He is secretary of the Board of
Trade at Gladstone?, and fills the position to the satisfaction of hi* business associates, is a Freemason and
a Methodist, and withal is a mnn of
such modesty that it hns been difficult to get him to divulge sufficient
information to produce this sketch,
which we only fear does not do him
full justice.
Mr. Minaker's efforts for the public wenl are appreciated by his many
subscribers, and we hope he may enjoy health and long life to pursue his
chosen occupation.

Solar Engines
- Dr. Louis Eell has been discussing,
in Cassier's Magazine, the possibility
of securing power for industry from
other sources than fuel. Aa to the
practicability of getting power from
sunshine, he appears to be more
hopeful than a good many others,
but there is something in the recent
experiments in southern California to
warrant modest faith that the solar
engine will yet prove a useful servant of the human race. By placing
a steam boiler in the focus of a huge
concave mirror���or of what amounts
to one���it has been possible to develop something like 10 to 15 horsepower. How much such a plant
would cost Dr. Bell docs not. say,
but the main thing is that it will
work. An engine of this sort labors
under one disadvantage, even in a
region where the skies are unclouded
most nl tne year, The output of
power will not be uniform. It should
inciease to a certain maximum from
dawn, and then decrease until sunset. Hence the device does not
seem to be suited for the operation
oi a railway Or a factory. Like the
windmill, which is even more variable in its performance, a solar engine is well suited to the business of
pumping water. In some parts of
the country this service alone would
be of Inestimable value.

sufferer from sciatica. In the morning while getting up I would be
seized with agonizing pains in my

the other; often down both. The
pain was terrible. Imagine the agony
caused by a red hot spike being

June. One would think this 120 day
wind enough, but violent wluds prevail
all through the whiter from December
to April, uud blizzards are of constant
occurrence. These winds always come
from the same direction. The wluter
blizzards nre terrible, and the wind attains n terrific velocity. In a blizzard
at the end of March the anemometers
registered a maximum of 120 miles an
hour. The average velocity for a whole
sixteen hours was more than eighty-
eight miles an hour.
The extraordinary frequency and violence of the Selstan wind and tbe regularity with which It blows from the
same quarter are very remarkable.
That It has blown from the same quarter In past ages Is proved by the fact
that all the ruins of Selstan are built
at the same angle, with their front and
back walls at a right angle to the
wind aud tbeir side walls at the same
angle as the wlud. No wind can blow
with such violence and frequency
without leaving Its mark on tbe country. Its effects nre everywhere visible
lu Selstau. Everything looks wind
swept and wlncT*stricken. Over the
greater part of the country uot a single
tree exists.
The present villages and habitations
are all built with their backs presenting lines of dead walls ou the windward side. The old ruins are oriented
at exactly tbe same angle ou account
of tbe wind. The effect of wind is everywhere visible on these ruins. Their
bases are undercut by wlud as though
by water action. The thickness of the
walls, the excellent quality of the
burned bricks made aud used by the
ancient Inhabitants for the lower
courses of their buildings and the extreme hardness and durability of tbe
Selstan soil wheu made luto tbe sun
dried bricks of which the upper portions of the ruins are composed, have
withstood the destructive effect of the
wind In a wonderful manner, but In
the older ruins we often find that the
walls facing the wind have entirely
disappeared, and ouly the side walls remain, while In still older ruins only
one or two solitary pinnacles remain to
mark what were once large, massive
and extensive buildings.
Tbe wind has buried large tracts of
the country uuder sand. Many of the
old ruined towns are wholly or partly
burled in sand, and this burying process
goes on all the year and every year and
Is covering up not ouly valuable lands,
but Inhabited villages. Iu Selstan, as
elsewhere, tbe Invading army of sand
Is preceded by lines of skirmishers In
the form of traveling "burkbans,"
horseshoe shaped sand hills, which
steadily advance until they meet some
obstacle which retards them until the
reserves come up to their support and
bury all before them uuder hills of sand.
On our arrival Iu Selstan we found
Kllaliiau, a big and nourishing village,
built ou the south side of a high ridge
for protection from the wind. Before
we left the sand bad attacked that
ridge, surmounted It aud burled tbe
village, forcing the Inhabitants to build
a new village elsewhere. An example
of still greater rapidity was afforded
at the village of Kiliilkolinn. Up to
June, 1004, this village had a large,
deep pond on Its northern sldt. By
September���that Is, less than three
months���this deep pond was converted
Into a sand hill some ten feet high.
The wtnd, however, did not confine
Its energy to burying only. While It
covers some tracts deep In sand, It also
sweeps other tracts clear of sand, rendering valuable land available for cultivation and exposing long burled ruins
once more to view. These are, however, ouly the milder effects of jvlud
action. Tho Selstnn wind In Its more
destructive moods has In places removed not only sand from place to
place, but has scoured away the whole
face of the country. Everywhere we
find the sides nnd bunks of tbe canals
which Irrigated the hinds on which the
dwellers of the old ruins <]i*|ipnileej left
standing like walls high above the present surface of the surrounding land.
These banks, having been hardened by
water, have withstood the action of the
wind betler than the surface of tlie
land, which has nil been blown away
lo n depth of several feet. This depth
In places Is very considerable, and we
find the outlines exposed of still older
canals which existed at some yet earlier age and which must have been
burled deep In the ground wbeu the
canals above them, old as they are,
were In use.
