Cn Sale July 9th.
Tl.c special number of the ''Review"
is now in actual course of production
and will be on sale tlie 9th of July. A
well-known firm in Toronto, who muke
a specialty of this class of work have
been entrusted with tbe production, and
under lbe personal supervision of ihe
I Editor, it promises to be a work in
every way worthy of the illustrated
newspaper craft.
It will contain a large number of
pages most of which will be illustrated
with half tones reproduced from photographs collected from all parts of British
Columbia. The chief industries of tlie
country such as mining, lumbering,
fruit giowing, etc.. have been ably dealt
with. Several able writers b.ive contributed subjects whicli will lie of interest to all classes and will also be found
to contain much valuable information
for the tourist and settler. Photos of
the prominent men of lhe district, as
well us the various Churches with descriptive articles, will be found in its
pages. i*ix thousand copies are to be
printed, a number of whicli will be circulated in the principal libraries in
England. It will thus be seen that as
un advertisement both for the distiict
and B.C. generally, it will surpass anything whVh has hitherto been published.
The price for a tingle copy will be 50**.

The Silver Ores of
Smelters that will not smelt and mills
that will not mill the orei they were intended to tre.it, stand idle at many
points in the Kootenay district, silent
but irrefutable witnesses to the frauds
and mistakes perpetrated in tbe name
of mining.
The Slocan has no idle smelters but
there are several useless mills in the
camp ; some built before a supply of ore
was found, but most of them erected before the nature of the ores to be dressed
had been fully investigated.
As the future welfare of this camp do-
pends mainly on tbo proper dressing of
its zinc minerals for market, and on
the economical treatment of all grades
of silvor minerals found here, nil information on the nature of tho ores,
vein giinguos and best methods of dressing **.iid treating the various ore should
I think, be collected and made as public a.3 possible for the good of tbe camp.
With this aim, tho following brief
article on the silver minerals of lho
camp is submitted, to aid, in some
measure, tin se wbo have not had time
or opportunity to investigate the composition and propertiesof these mineral..
Cerargarile, "horn silver," or chloride of silver and bromyrite, or bromide
of silver, havo been omilted from the
list as no minerals answering the physical and chemical lests which determine
these two minerals have, as far as I
kuow, yet been found In Ibis camp.

Regarding tbo above minerals, except
native silver, they are often found in a
decomposed condition, as blark powder
in cavities or as blue-black stains in the
gangue roik or clay selvage and are
then in a general way, referred to as
"Sulphurets of Silver."
Tetrabedrite, when found pure, is a
combination of sulphides of copper and
iintimony, with the formula 4 C112 Sx
Sl>2 S3 (or Cu8 Sb2 S7 ) wliich gives the
percentage composition���Copper 52.23
per cent., Antimony 24.73 per cent,
Sulphur 23.04 per cent.
However, the mineral is eo seldom
pure and is so variable in composition,
having usually much of the copper replaced by Bilvcr, that it is much more
importantas an ore of silver than as an
ore of copper. ^
There is little difference practically,
between tetrabeJrile and freibergite,
the latter usually being classed ns a
variety of tetrabedrite or "grey copper."
Tlie silver bearing minerals found in
the Slocan are associated mechanically,
not chemically, with tbe 1* ad, zinc, and
other minerals mined in the camp.
The above table shows that the chemical associates of the silver are all either
non-metallic, like arsenic and sulphur,
or very brittle, like antimony; and this,
fact should always be kept iu mind
when mills nro designed to dress Slocan ores.
In dressing the high grade silver ores
of the Slocnn, hand sorting, with suitable mechanical conveniences for
handling the material, iB no doubt more
satisfactory than any ordinary pruceBS
of milling; mainly on account of the
veiy friable nature of the silver minerals, which, in milling, become liberated
from the other minerals and vein gangue, and pass off as slimes.
Some of the silver ores of the Slocan
are so rich that they can be profitably handled by almost any method;
therefore will, at present, be dismissed
from consideration.
Tlie most important problem to be
solved in tbis camp is���how to profitably
obtain the silver values from the large
amounts of low grade ore, taken out
when mining the richer ore bodies, or
accumulating as robbings from sorting
the richer ores.
In many cases, especially in the "dry
ore" belt, where a mine produces ono
ton oi shipping ore, from two to four
tons of low grade ore will be accumulated on tbe dumps, and, all thia lower
grade material, mined, trammed, and
sorted, must lie wasteuntil some method
of extracting the silver values is devised.
The highest extraction of silver can,
undoubtedly, be obtained by smelting;
but tlie cost of transportation and treatment at present, practically prohibits
this method of utilizing the class of oro
under consideralion.
Especially in the "dry ore" belt, some
method of treating the second class ore
at or near the mines, must be found or
applied before the mines of ihat stction
can be made profitable generally.
Fine crmhing or sliming, followed by
cynniding and electric or other method
of precipitating iho silver has been
tried with fair success on Bomo of tbo
ores; but in many cases, due to very
complex ores or the peculiar nature
of the gangue matter, these methods
have not proved satisfactory.
The "vacuum oil process," a method
of extracting lbe metal minerals from
the gangue material, after crushing to a
suitable size, has been found adapted
to some complex ores; but it is not yet
demonstrated that this process will
save all the friable silver-bearing minerals found in Slocan ores.
At   the  present   time,  thousands of
tons of material, containing from ten up
to thirty ounces of silver per tun, are on
the dumps of Slocan mines, and tbo
I solving of tlie problem bow to profitably
I extract tbis silver means much lo the
, Slocan.
Fire at Henderson's Island.

Soon, ns tho road curved down to
the river bank, the city wnll grew
nearer nnd nearer until tbey had passed the southern gnte and were rattling
over the stony causeway, leaving the
broad Luxembourg upon their right
and Colbert's last work, the Invalides,
upon their left. Tlie young officer bad
his bead still thrust out of the window, but his view was obscured by a
broad gilded carriage which lumbered
heavily nlong in front of tbem. As tlie
road broadened, however, It swerved to
one side, and he was able to catch tt
glimpse of the Cutiiiat house.
It was surrounded ou every side bj
an immense crowd.
The house of the Huguenot merchant
was a tall, narrow building, standing
at the corner of the Rue St. Martin
and tbe Rue de Birou. It wns four
stories in height, grim and grave like
its owner, with high peaked roof, long
diamond paned windows, a framework
of blnck wood, with gray plnster Ailing
the interstices, and five stone steps
iwhlch led up to the narrow and somber
door. Tbe upper story was but a
warehouse, in which tbe trader kept
his stock, but the secoud nnd third
were furnished with bnlconies edged
with stout wooden balustrades. As
the uncle nnd tbe nephew sprang out
of the cnleche they found themselves
upon tho outskirts of a dense crowd of
people, who were swaying nud tossing
���with excitement, their chins all thrown
forward and tlieir gaze directed upward. Following their eyes, the young
officer snw a sight wliich loft him
stnnding bereft of every sensation save
From the upper balcony there was
hanging bend downward a man clad
"Pull mc up, son of the devil, pull m_

In tbe blight blue coat nnd white
breeches of one of the king's dragoons.
His bat nnd wig had dropped off, nnd
his close cropped head swung slowly
backward and forward n good fifty
feet nbove the pavement. Ills voice
resounded over the whole place until
the air was filled with bis screams for
Above bim nt the corner of the balcony there stood a young man who
leaned wltb a bent back over tbe
balustrade and who held the dangling
dragoon by either ankle. Ills face,
however, was not directed toward his
victim, but was half turned over his
shoulder to confront a group of soldiers who were* clustering at the lonn
open window wnicti opcn'ea-out into
tbe balcony.
Suddenly the crowd gave a groan of
excitement. Tbe young man bad released his grip upou one of the ankles,
and tbe dragoon hung now by one ouly,
bis other leg flapping helplessly lu the
"Pull me up, son of the devil, pull
me up!" he screamed. "Would you

"Yes, sacred nnme of God, yes!"
"Order off your men, tbeu."
"Away, you dolts, you imbeciles! Do
J you wish to see me dnshed to pieces?
Awny, I say!   Off with you!"
"Thnt is better," snld tbe youth when
the soldiers bnd vanished from tbo
window. He gnve n tug nt the dragoon's leg as be spoke, whicli jerked
him up so far thnt he could twist
round aud catch hold of the lower edge
of tbe balcony. "How do you find
yourself now?" he nsked.
"Let me up, sir; let me up!"

"Very good.   Come along."

while the other gripped his way up the
bnlustrnde until amid n buzz of congratulation from the crowd he tumbled
nil 'n a henp over the rail on to the
bnlcony, where be lay for n few moments ns he bad fallen. Then, staggering to his feet, without a glnnce at
his opponent, be rushed with a bellow
of ;ngo through the open window.
While this little drama bad been en-
ncted overhead tbe young guardsman
had shaken off his first stupor of
amazement and had pushed his way
through the crowd with such vigor
tbat be nnd bis companion hnd nenrly
reached tbe bottom of tbe steps. The
uniform of tbe king's guard was In Itself n passport anywhere, nnd the face
of old Catlnat wns so well known ln
the district tl.nt everv one drew back
to clenr n pnth for him townrd his
bouse. The door wns flung open for
them, nnd an old servant stood ���wringing bis bunds ln the dark passnge.
"Oh, master! Ob, master!" be cried.
"Such doings!   Such infamy!"
As be spoke a clatter and shouting
which bnd burst out ngnin upstairs
ended suddenly In a tremendous crash,
with volleys of oaths and a prolonged
bumping and smashing, whicli shook
the old bouse to its foundations. The
soldier und the Huguenot rushed swiftly up the first flight of stnlrs and were
nbout to ascend the secoud one, from
the head of which tho uproar seemed
to proceed, when four men, so locked
together that they formed but oue rolling bundle, came thudding down nruld
a debris of splintered stair rails and
writhed and struggled upon the landing, staggering up, falling down, nnd
nil breathing together like the wind ln
a chimney. So twisted and twined
were they that It was hard to pick one
from the other save that the Innermost
was chid in black Flemish clotb, while
tbe three who clung to him were soldiers of the king. Yet so strong and
vigorous was tbe man whom tbey tried
to hold that ns often ns he could find
Ills feet he dragged tbem after him
from end to end of the passage, ns a

through the body of bis unarmed opponent when De Cutiiiat sprang for-
wnrd and caught him by the wrist.
"You villain, Dalbert!" he cried.
Tbe sudden nppearuuee of one of the
king's own bodygunrd hnd a mngic
effect upon the brawlers. Dalbert
sprung back, with hi.*; thumb still in his
mouth and his sword drooping, scowling darkly at the newcomer. His
troopers had released their victim nnd
stood panting in n line, while the young
man leaned against the wall, brushing
the dust from his black coat.
"1 hnd a little account to settle with
you before, Dalbert," said De Cutinnt,
unsheathing bis rapier. Your sword,
"I havo no quarrel with you."
"No?" De Cutinnt stepped forward
nnd struck hlm across the fnce with
his open hnnd. "It seems to me that

"Hell and furies!" screamed the captain. "To your amis, men! Hola, there,

of the old merchant's hand the thick

his place beside the gunrdsmnn.
"Call off your canaille anl fight me

He sprung forward nud sent ln a

blow from the cudgel of tbe young
Stranger which sent bis weapon tinkling ou to the ground. A trooper,

quietly ascended from the street nnd
who bad been looking on with an

fiery sequence of events took a sudden,
quick step forwnrd and ordered all
parties to drop tbelr weapons witb a
voice so decided, so stern and so ful'
of authority thnt the saber points nil
clinked down together upou the parquet flooring as though it were a pnrt
of their daily drill.
"Upon my word, gentlemen; upon
my word!" bo said, lookiug sternly
from one to the other. In his gait und
benring he had a dainty strut nnd
buckwurd cock of tbe bend, which,
taken with bis shnrp hlnck eyes, bis
high, thin features and his assured
manner, would impress a stranger with
the feeling that tbis was a mnn of
power. And, indeed, in France or out
of it there were few to whom this

up as large ns thnt of the king wns

now, with gold snuffbox in one hnnd
and deep laced handkerchief in the

did uot know the lust of the great
French nobles, lhe bravest of French
captains, the beloved Conde, victor of

"Sly faith, you seem to hnve left little bebiud you," said Conde, smiling,
as he glanced at the litter which wns
Strewn all over the floor. "And so you
broke your parole, Captain Dalbert?"
"I could not hold treaty with a Huguenot nnd tin enemy of the kiug," said
thc dragoon sulkily.
"Y'ou could hold treaty, It appears,
but uot keep it. Aud wby did you let

"I believed his promise. I hnve been
used to deal with Indians."
"Heh! And you think nu Indian's

"I did not think so nn hour ago."
"Y'ou ure very strong, monsieur," said
Conde, glancing keenly at the broad

"But the king's commnnd, your highness."
"I will tell the king wben 1 see bim

Conde raised bis thick eyebrows at
the Scriptural fashion of the merchant's speech, 'but he bowed courteously to tbe Invitation.
"My carriage waits below," said he,
"and I must not delay longer. It is
uot often that I lenve my castle of
Chantilly to come to Turis, nud it wus
a fortunate chance whicli mnde me
puss in time to be of service to honest

bend nnd strutted off in his dainty,
dandified fashion. From the window
De Catinat could see hlm step Into tbo

lu his way ns lie drove from Versailles.
"By my faith," snld he, turning to
tbe youug American, "we all owe

But tbelr young visitor nppenred to

"Indeed, tbe Indies should be very

"Much of my life has been spent In

so Utile there that one comes to forget
how to do It. it wns for this that my

"And bow long do you stop In Tar-

"Until Ephrnlm Suvnge, the mnstei

De Cutinnt, "so If you have two

"Oh, fear not for that," said the
Hugueuot. "Tbe order of tbe Princo

After riding some time De Cntinnt
snid, "Now, if you will look tbere In

The two young men pulled up their

The   Story   That   Comes   From   Its!
About a  Haunted  House.
Italy Is stesdlly producing tbe chum
pion "spirit" yarns of the decade. Tb
following comes from Anconn nnd i
given In tbe lnnguage of two brothe
lnwyers, the sons of Signor Marraelnl
public prosecutor:
"Since several dnys tbe strange*:
events hnve been taking plnce iu our
house. Lnst night we heard repeated
knocklugs and the moving of furniture
In uninhabited rooms. Hurrying thith
cr, we henrd n rustliug und nothing
more. Meanwhile there was n curious
disturbance in the electric wires, anil
nil tbe bells lu the bouse began to
ring, making u horrible din. Believing
tbat the wires bnd somehow got Into
contact, we hnd tbe whole iustallntioii
examined by a competent person, bu*.
everything was In order. But the most
remarkable thing wus the discovery ol
jets of water springing from the walls
and almost flooding the floors. These
were seen not only by us, but by othei
persons ns well. Shortly afterwnrd
we were in tbe dining room when we
saw milk coming up through the lloor
We reported the mutter lo some workmen, who examined the walls, broke
up the floors, raising the blocks, bul
they did uot find the least trace of
milk, water or nny other liquid.
"Still the prodigies were not finished,
ns wns shown by the appearance in the
dining room of n cup filled with milk
One of us who happened to be close to
the spot ou the floor where the cup nppenred drew n little nearer nnd snw n
eup of coffee nnd milk arrive. Our fn
ther then cried jokingly: 'Coffee nml
milk? Bull! I should prefer wiue.
Shortly afterward, while the table was
being cleared, we saw n liquid running
from the wnlls. It was wine. A little
while ngo n pear nppenred, nnd then
we recalled Hint our sister had asked
nt table for n pear, but wns refused,
as sbe bad already eaten enough fruit
The pear was on n dish, which wns
locked nwny hi tbe glnss sideboard
When lbe Intter was opened the peai
was uo longer there.
"We then thought that some mye
terious niedlunilstie force might be exercised by our sister, so we wutehed
her every movement carefully and followed the child when she rose from
lhe table. When She passed close to n
bookshelf where there were two vol
nines on spiritualism, one of the books
was raised In the nir ns though b.\
some supernatural force. It bit the
girl several times on the shoulders,
then danced for n few moments in the
nir nnd wns then chipped against lhe
wnll nt the very spot whence the milk
hnd issued."���Chicago News.

How   King   Edward    Was   Shown   ���
Whitewashed   Elephant.
Few men can till a itfore interesting life story than Lord George Sanger, the famous London showman,
who has just announced his retirement from the Showmen's Guild, of
whicli he has been president for eighteen years.
"My father," he says, "was a Wiltshire ploughboy, but having no fancy
for tbe life be tied his horses'heads
together one day and leaving them
nt tlie roadside he walked to London.
At London Bridge he was seized by a
press-gang, und he served under Lord
Nelson on His Majesty's ship Victory.
Indeed, he trod the verv quarterdeck
on which Nelson fell at'Trafalgar.
--"On leaving tlie navy, after serving for over ten years, my futher
carried n peepshow on his shoulders,
nnd he used to set it on trestles in
villages und (he boys paid pennies to
peep at the pictures. He afterward
joined hands with a man named Tom
Gregory, nn old soldier -who hnd been
at Waterloo, and tbey tramped tho
country together."
Mr. Singer is practically a self-
educated as well ns self-made mnn.
He went to school* one day, nnd got
the enne for it. "And I deserved it,"
he says. "I went, hnino to my mother
crying. She said, 'Don't mind, George,
you shan't go back any more' And
mother   kept   her   word.     1   received
most of my education out of the Bible
lessons ut home. We loved onr Bible
nnd we gol iniieli good from it."
Of the showmen of to-day ��� nnd
there nro some 70.1100 moving nbout���
Mr, Sanger hns the highest opinion.
Tli ne men nml women nre recruited
from nil professions, and he defies,
nny man to point out a terrible crime
wliich was committed by a van dweller or showman. In the old dnys, Mr.
Sanger confesses, tlieir morals and
oharaoter were not so good as they
are to-day. But it must be remembered that the old country folk regarded thorn years ago as being aliens,
certainly not Englishmen. They were
liable to bo insulted and nbused by
hooligan villagers, who made war upon their goods nnd chattels. The
showman hud n great deal to make
them bnd���n bnd example wns set
them, nnd unfortunately evil followed
in their stops. Since those enrly dnys
showmen huve certainly progressed
with the times.
In the past they were forced to fight
some most oppressive laws, nnd Mr.
Suiiger recalls the dnys when their
caravans weje liable to be invaded at
six o'clock in the morning by plough-
boys in the guise of policemen, who
could violate tlieir homes with impunity.
Concerning the enrly fnirs which he
attended, Mr. Snnger says that in
mnny enses they were held on a Monday and the showmen, with their
vans, often bud to remain outside the
towns nml villnges on Sundays. "As
soon ns twelve o'clock struck there
wns a helter-skelter nice to get to the
ground, nnd, of course, it was a case
of first come first served. I have
known opposition showmen block up
one another's wheels nnd put stones
iu the roadway nnd to resort to other
menn dodges in order to hinder tlieir
"Among the old-timers," continued
the vetcrnn showman, "there were
some very wealthy men. Chief of them
wns Richardson, although he hud been
a warehouse boy; be left n large sum
of money townrd the building of a
church. Mr. George Wombwell was
another wealthy man, nnd no one
gnve moro to charity than he did. Yet
these men were travelers."
Perhaps one of the best stories
which Mr. Sanger tells is of the present King, who, when Prince of Wales,
visited a Sanger pantomine, in which
a white elephant .appeared. "It really
is white, I suppose?" said the prince,
as he was being conducted "behind"
the scenes to get a closer view. "Your
Royal Highness," replied the showman, dropping his voice, "wo may
deceive the public sometimes, but we
must not lie to our prince. We whitewash it twice a day I"
Strange   Incantation   By   Natives   In
Remarkable evidence was given by
British Fust African natives who have
turned King's evidence ut the inquiry
into the murder of the Englishman,
Mr. Thomas London.
One witness stated thnt Mr. London

knives nnd an Arab sword, which wns
produced in court. The witness said
that when the murderers were currying nway tlie body one of tbem wiped
