most auspicious and ela'-orato banquet

the next toast, in proposing which Mr.
Pro*1" remarked that although he himself \<as a Liberal, he but echoed the
sentiments of a great many others of
the party when he said that B.C. had a
stable government. He had worked
for Mr. Hunter during the last campaign because he had no doubts of the
return of the MeBride government and
because the Slocan needed a Slocan
man and a good party one. As a member of that government he felt positive
Mr, Hunter would acquit himself with
honor and cover himself with glory, but
he would come back ttie same " Old
Bill," but with many more friends as a
result of the benefits secured this coun

toast was then drunk and responded to
by Angus Mclnnes, New Denver's mining recorder, from whom word*: of praise

A leng'.hy telegram regretting inability

Deane, Nelson.
"Our Guest" was the toast of the
evening, and it seems supeifluous to
add thftt niagir.ims were charged, lifted
and drained to the health and prosperity of one whom the whole country
side were proud to call their representative. "He's a jolly good fellow"
roared tin a.seinMy, and ihe j iyous
tribute of his fellow men was wafted on
the frosty air ac 03" the silent crystal
waters of SI jcau Lake and lis beloved
purpling mountains, and b.ck from
those, peaks an 1 hoacy-headed glaciers
which had bidden him welcome in
the pioneer days of his early manhood
came the richoch-'iting echo, in t fulsome mead of whole-smled greeting
" Which nobody can deny."
Mr. Hunter, on rising, received a
volley of applause. In a short but
happy speech ho said how proud he
was to be there that evening in a representative gathering of the Sloc-in
electors and be the recipient of so much
kindly enthusiasm. He was not worthy
of it, but he would endeavor lo merit
the confidence bestowed upon him
He had received many suggestions since
his return which he would work on
that fchould prove of benefit to the
community, His one object was to
work for tiie omnion go d, and if he
but partly succeeded in his plans, he
would feel that his humble efforts were
not, .unavailing. He thanked them
again and resumed his seat amidst
de.ifening applause.
" The Provincial* Government " wss
"The Mining Industry" was the next
toa.t, which was responded to by B. J.
MePhee. At the onset he paid a great
compliment to the guest of the evening
by remarking that at last the Slocan had
a represcntrtive after its own heart, but
a roar of laughter followed when an
auburn-haired imp from Nelson took
pains to observe sotto voce, " But not
wiih your help." Mr. McPiioe joined
heartily in the laughter which the joke
on him had occasioned, and then went
on wilh his speech. " Depression and
its causes " was the theme, and he proceeded to lash wild-catters in good
shape. The confidence of investors had
to be restored before the Slocan would
take its rightful position in the mining
industry, and how to restore that confidence was something which every man
present should concern himself with.
If anyone 'were to tell him that our
mines would net pay for working deep
he would laugh iu their face. Where
development had been prosecuted, excellent results had accrued. But one
swallow, he said, did not make a
summer, nor wonld the successful operation of a few mines build up the camps
of the Slocan. Capital was needed to
pursue development work, which would
open np many big dividend-paying
mines; but capital must bo legitimately
encouraged and at the same time receive
no set back whilst operating. He tlien
spoke of the 2 per cent, tax being a
a deterrent factor in the progress of the
Slocan, and advocHted its abolition or a
modification. The speaker next trained
his artillery on the new " Sunday Observance Act," and said that while it
was good for largo cities and good for
women and children everywhere, it
was bad for a new country where mining operations had to be conducted.
He spoke as a mine manager of experience when he said it was an impossible
order of things for this country the
creators of this Act would bring about.
Personally, he said, he had no objection
to the Act, but the opposition from the
miners was so great that to keep good
miners he believed mine owners would
oppose the Bill tooth and nail He then
raised a titter by remarking that a mine
manager had to toke his hat off lo a
camp cook. He concluded by remarking that the mining industry was the
staple industry of the Province, and
that the Slocan was yet in its infancy.
The speech waa well delivered aud
deservedly applauded.
Mr. C. E. Ostby also ably responded
to the toast with a neat little speech
in which he reviewed the mining Industry from a leasers point of view.
" The Lumbering Industry " was then
toasted and responded to by D. St.
Dcn!s in a capital speech. He took ex-
jection to the statement made by Mr.
Mcl'hee that the mining industry took
precedence over lumbering, and cited
in support of his contention the enormous revenue obtained bv the provincial treasury from Ibis source during
the past few years. He then reviewed
the industry and denied the existence
of a combine-. There was a m-.uniain luin-
boi man's association, but iheir policy
waa protective and non-aggressive*.
He observed (though wu have doubts as
lo 11*8 sincerity) that the lumbermen
needed a further dollar a thousand to
make ends meet. Forest fires, he said,
were a menace to the industry, and unless the government issued instructions
to give fire wardens a free hand to order
the combatting of fires as they occurred,
in a few years nothing would he left
but chanedslumps, and a most valuable
asset would be lost to the province for
W. II. Brandon was also slattd to
respond to the same toast. He said he
was uot a lumberman, but he was endeavoring at present to put through a
deal which if successful would help out
considerably. His recent trip to Winnipeg was in connection with that deal.
If trying to bring capital to the country made him a lumberman, then he
was a lumberman. He made a few remarks on the local industry and reiterated tlie statement of the previous
speaker re forest fires.
"Tne L*g:il Profession." This toast
brought forth clever expositions of extempore rhetoric from Messrs. Han-
nington aud "Kex" Macdonald, of
Nelson. The assembly roared at the
witty retort of these clever lawyers,
whose particularly good line was a deep
hatred  oi  each   other  proleesioually.
After Mr. Hanm'ngton was through
with his speech Die banquetters roared
with laughter, and it looked as is Mr.
Macdonald was down and out for ever.
Rising to respond he commenced as
follows (very modestly): " Mr. Chairman���gentlemen���I had prepared most
elaborate notes for my speech here this
evening. Shortly after my arrival here
with my jealous colleague���I, er, 1
missed those nates. Now, I knaw where
they went." (An orange missed the
speaker's head by half an inch). Mr
Macdonald continued a most satirical
flow of language whilst holding a chair
as a guard in front of his face.
The health of the following towns was
then drunk with fervor'

"The   Press"   was   enthusiastically
drank, and responded to by Jay-Jay of
the  " War Cry."   The  guests   smiled
encouragingly as he proceeded with his
rotten   oratory,    and  sympathetically
helped him out  with applause at .its
conclusion.   There was no collection.
"The Ladies" found a most charming champion in Mr. C. C. Rhodes. If
we were an angel we would take chances
in hugging that fellow. That Vandyke
whisker who could resist ?
A toast which was most heartily taken
andj musically honored was "Neil
McKay, the member for Kaslo riding,"
which was proposed by Angus Mclnnes.
The toast list was interspersed with
harmony, the following songs being
rendered. R. M. Hanuington ably
acted as accompanist:
"Stein on the table," R. W. Macdonald. " The Deep Lowlands." R. M.
Hanuington. " Killaloe," J. J. Atherton. "The Horseshoe," Dan Brandon.
The Lost Chord," (encored) " The
Absent-minded Bolus," Dr. Brouse.
The shirt my father wore," R. J.
MePhee. " The night I let the Gorgon*
zola loose," Anthony Madden. "Oh,
Champagne Charlie is my name," H -
R. Jorand.
Before the conclusion,'the toasts of the
Chairman and Toastniaster were drunk
with great gutto, which was followed
by the singing of the National Anthem,
and thus ended one of the happiest
events in the history of the country.
We cannot allow the occasion to pass
without some special words of praise
fo Host Madden. He will be the recipient for days to come of eulogiums
for the magnificent banquet he catered
for. "f was a feast for the gods, and
many out-of-season delicacies were nho
there which found no place on the
menu. We also congratulate the executive of the Slocan City Conservative
Associatian on the excellence of the
Wedding Bells.
On Thursday evening, at the home of
the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jas.
Thompson, well-known and respected
citizens of Sandon, occurred the marriage of their daughter, Minnie Evelyn,
to Mr. Colin Stewart. As the beautiful
strains of the wedding march rendered
by the bride's mother floated through
the rooms, the bridal party passed onto
a carpet of white linen bordered with
smilax and roses. Overhead was n
beautifully constructed arch festooned
with delicate and fragrant flowers, intermingled wilh Cupid's darts and
hearts. Rev. Forbes Rutherford spoke
the words which united the two young
hearts for the remainder of life's
The bride was attired in a beautiful
gown of blown broadcloth und robin's
egg blue trimmings. The groom and
groomsman, Mr. Fred. McDonell, wore
the conventional black. Mrs. Rutherford, as maid of honor, looked most
charming in a dress of changeable green
silk with green velvet and cream silk
The bride is one of our choicest young
ladies. From a little girl she has grown
up in our midst, honored by old and
young alike. She has ever beeu a
bright star in the home circle and now
���he has gone* to reign as queen in her
own home.
The groom is the second ton of
Dougald Stewart, of Kensington, P.E.I.,
and by those who know him in this city
he is considered to be one of the substantial and coming young men of the
A large party of guests arrived, later
in the evening with congratulations and
presents, and a bounteous and delicious
repast was partaken of, Mrs. Thompson fully sustaining her reputation in
the culinary art.
The Review joins their many friends
in congratulations and best wishes as
they embark ou life's rugged voyage together.

This property, situated at Sandon, is
owned by Mr, G. W. Hughes and associate. It consists of 12 mining claims
and fractions, aggregating about 850
acres. The Lucky Jim vein was discovered in 1892 and worked irregularly for
some years for silver-lead ore; during
the years 1896���1899 concentrating ore
amounting to 5,641 tons was produced,
from which 1,600 tons of zinc blende
averaging 50 per cent zinc was sorted
out. The remainder, n zinc-lead product was sold to the owners of the Pilot
Bay concentrating and smelting works.
Tlie 1,600 tons of zinc ore assaying
about 6 ozs., of silver per ton, 3 per
cent lead, and 50 p.c. zinc, was shipped
partly to Antwerp and partly to the
Fry process works on the Manchester
Ship Canal, England, a special freight
of $14.50 having been seemed from the
mine to these works;put unfortunately
the works, the proern and its inventor
all came to grief about the time the ore
arrived in England,.' and the shippers
gained nothing but experience by the

down, but it was reopened in 1003 by
Mr. G. W. Hughes, the present owner,
who has declartd dividends of 1100,000
aa the result of zinc tire shipments dur-
1904 and 1005. -     -��
Tlie production under Mr. Hughes
management up to the end of 1905
amounted to 5S45 tone cf zinc blende
averaging 54 p.c. zinc, a small poi tion
of the tonnsge being concentrates from
atrial shipment to the Payne .concentrator at Sandon.
The property is developed by 5 tunnels, the uppermost worked exclusively
for silver-lead ore and now abandoned,
being situated at an elevation of 4,551
feet above sea level. Tha Slide tunnel
so called because its portal ia situated
on the side of the gulch in the track
of a large snowslide, is at an elevation of 4,474 feet. Another tunnel
(called No. 2) is connected with the
Kaslo and Slocan Railway by a gravity
tram 1,300 feet long, with a fall of 8S0
feet. These tunnel* together with Ihe
branch levels, aggregate 3,000 feot of
The Lucky Jim ore deposit differs ao
much from the general run of the Slocan
vein aeries that a ahort note on the
geological conditions ia necessary to a
clear understanding of the ore occurence ot this very interesting mine. Iu
a word the ore ia found in a zone of
limestone and calcareous slate where
penetrated by fissures, and invariably
is the purer crystalline limestone of the
zone. The footwall of the limestone
is a hard, dark-green fissile slate, more
or less pyritiferous near the plane of
contact with the limestone. Impure
quartzite bids occur in the footwall
slates, but not in the vicinity of tbe ore
deposits. The hanging wall country, as
seen in No. 2 tunnel, appears to be the
average graphite slate of the Slocan
series.' The foot and {hanging country
is separated by about 1*30 feet of calcareous slates, limestone, etc,that make
up what I shall call the limestone zone.
'Ihe pay ore occurs in chimneylike cof-
umtiB in the purer limestone, invariably along Borne line of Assuring, or extending along the fissure in veinlike
form, where limestone is one or both of
the fissure walls. The Assuring like
m6st of the Slocan aerie s, is greatest at
the' preaent surface and becomes less in
depth, the minor fissures often disappearing in less than 100 feet from surface. These latter, however, are confined lo the limestone zone and are
more properly called incipient fissures
The key to this ore deposit is, however,
the east-west fissures crossing the strike
of the limestone zone and this fact
should not be lost eight of in prospecting at the Lucky Jim, or other properties along jibe strike of the limestone
zone to the south.
Referring to the plan of the workings
the Safety tunnel follows very closely
the strike of the slates from its portal
to the tu m. The main fissure of the
mine was intersected at this turn and
followed westerly through the slates until the contact plane was reached. This
fissure is a clear break in tbe slate.,
averages about 2 feet in width and
stands vertical. I could not observe
any mineralization in tho slates, the
fissure being for the most part open
though here and there blocked by
crushed alate. The drift followed the
open fissure westerly to the limestone
zone, where ore waa at once discovered
in chimneylike mass which waa followed
up to surface along the contact and
stoped out, producing considerable lead
ore. This upper atope it will be noticed on the plan, extends near the surface from the main fissure across the
Slide tunnel, and connects with one of
four subsidiary fissures that occur in
the west drift of this tunnel.
The Slide tunnel enters slate at its
portal and continues in same until
the limestone is reached. At this point
a drift runs back in a northwesterly direction along the footwall contact plane,
intersecting 4 parallel fissures in the
limestone. These are small and usually
tight, incipient fissures, which do not
extend into the slate foot wall, although
they carry ore in the limestone, and in
some places quite good bunches of ore.
The first fissure ia email and tight on
the levels, but haa been followed up by
a atope which connects with the surface
stope previously noted. The second
fissure ia also-very tight on the drift,
but aa followed weat, opened out, and
from 20 to 82 feet west of the drift
contained good concentrating ore for a
width of 12 feet, mostly a high class
blende. The third fissure intersected
in this side drift ia very smnll and ap
parently unimportant, while the fourth
and last ia the strongest of all. It haa
been followed through limestone 60 feet
It was amusing to notico  the efforts
of not a few who banqueted   tho other
from the foet wall, at which the hanging- night- to appear  perfectly  normal the
wall slates are met with. Galena with
some zinc blende ocenrs in this fissure
for a length of 50 feet, arid has been
stoped in one place up to surface.
These four fissures occur at intervals of
15 feet making a definite though incipient Assuring or sheeted zone, confined
however to the limestone which here
has a proven thickness of 50 feet. A
fifth fissure occurs at the junction
of thi* drift with the main
Slide tunnel and Ihe sixth and main
fissure, previously traced through the
Safety tunnel, is intersected at a distance
of 110 feet from the portal of the Slide
The main ore chimney on tho tunnel
horizon has an elliptical shape measuring 50 feet along tho fissure by about
80 feet greatest width. The sides of the
stope show aome *alenaand considerable
blende disseminate in limestone, all of
which would pay well to concentrate.
A winze connects with No. 2 tunnel 100
feet below, and aome atoping haa been
conducted around the winze. The
workingawere, however, filled with concentrating oro and inaccessible. Il
looks aa if tho high grade lead and zinc
ore haa been stoped in part, leaving
the concentrating ore to be removed
later. It waa seen that this ore chimney, aa represented by the atope, commences at surfilce with a thickness of
about 7 feet, swelling to 80 feet on the
Slide tunnel level. Tho limestone ia
also thin at surface, aboutSO feet, while
at tha Slide tunnel it ia 50 feet and on
No. 2 tunnel about 80 feet. ThiB ore
deposit is undoubtedly a replacement
of tbe pure semi-c.rystaliine lime��tone,
occuring near the footwall of the limestone zone, with high-grade lead ore
near the surface, followed hy lead and
zinc ore of considerable purity, and, ns
will presently be shown, a considerable
development of pyrites in depth, associated with a very fair grade of zinc ore.
Thia fissure I have previously referred
to aa the main fissure, because of its
great length in the slate and limestone,
and furthermore because a winze was
sunk on it to the No. 4 tunnel, where it
ia very wel) defined and carriea ore on
ita walla in the limestone. The rich
ore haa probably been very carefully
atoped out from this big chimney,
though there are no doubt, many thousand tons of good concentrating ore to
be obtained by further working around
the periphery. At le?st, very good
blende and galena ore mixed with lime-
atone and a little alate, can be seen
around the workings on and above . No.
J tunnel level,  while- below'that poirt
the chimney is filled with broken ore
which ia stored there, until arrangements
can be made fjr its concentration.
There are two adits on the horizon of
No. 2 tunnel. I shall first describe tbe
one driven to intersect the ore chimney,
last described.
This tunnel starts in on the southern
aide of the gulch and intersects the
limestone-slate contact 200" feet from its
portal, after passing through slate for
that distance. Near the contact the
alate containa quite a largo development
of scattered pyrite crystals, which may
lie said to extend about 20 feet back
from the contact. The pyrites is in
form of cubes, and is best developed
close to the contact. Passing inward
along the tunnel at a distance of 50 feet
from the contact the firs* fis*ure occurs-
A drift has been opened 15 feet to the
cast and a raise put up some distance.
This Assure is well defined here, and
would appear to correspond with the
most northern of the Slide tunnel serieB,
which has been there drifted on for a
length of 60 feet. Where cut on No. 4
tunnel, several good bunches of blende
occur in the fissure and iron pyrites is
somewhat plentiful in lhe limey rock
adjacent to it.

Wo read an amusing joke a month
ago of a boy, who, whilst snowballing in
Germany, accidently hit a gentleman in
an automobile. That gentleman was
the Kait-er. Our old friend the Vancouver World trotted the chestnut out
last Monday under a three decker headline, as a despatch from Berlin dated
March 2nd. The editor of " the paper
that prints the facts" is nn original
kind of an old goosobcry, but what's a
poor devil of an editor at the roast to do
when politics are out of season and the
bones of the defunct Liberal party are
decaying in the Potter's field.
following morning. "Say, old mnn,"
suid one whose eyes resembled fiery
orbs and his choeks a dyspeptic crub,
"How do I look? Do I-hic-look perfectly hic-sober ? "Sure, nobody could
tell you'd been near it." "Good, come

There was a scramble for hats after
the fiacas and one of our Nelson friends
secured one several sizes too largo. It
fitted lovely in the morning. We also
understand our legal friends comulted
"Rosceaux" for an antidote before arriving home, and the conductor informs
ua they found it.
Ftiend Towgood is still bucking
trouble through tho likones-i he bears
to the editor. A man who has known
him for years but who is rather Fhort-
sighted, approached him on Saturday
wilh reference to his putting an ad. in
the paper. Suit, says he wouldn't
mind ao much if the editor waa as good
looking ns him. While we arc on the
same theme we might mention that a
few weeks ago after being mistaken for
our double by the cashier of the bank,
we ran into a well-known government
official at New Denver. "Hello, Towgood." was hiB friendly greeting; but
we quickly disillusioned him by introducing ourself.   "Well, I'm " was
his rejoinder, "And I heard about the
likciies', too." Towgood happened to
be in New Denver the same day and
that fact did not help matters out very
much. An hour or so after we ran into
the government oflicial again, and to
our intouse merriment and bis discomfiture he claimed us once more as the
brewery man. Lie ter on in the evening
he came over to where we wero sitting
and spoko of an advert, in the Review.
Keeping up the joke we replied : "Excuse me, my name's Towgood." He
stepped back a pace or two, looked
ua square in the face, nnd roraarkod :
"Who the arc yo.i?''
Thank goodness the patrons of this
paper nre not expecting a verbatim report of tbo Thaw trial. They wouldn't
get it If-they were, so we have nothing
to .reproach ourselves wiih in consequence. If editors mould but stop to
think of the irreparable injury the reports arc causing to the morals of our
boya and giels, they would delete such
obnoxious filth from theirjcolumns evermore, and gain the respect of thousands

There is no language nt our command

Yet He who doeth all things well makes
no mistakes. The human link snapped
asunder on earth is forged anew iiv

as one without hope. In his springtime
of enthusiasm, ere the sunshine of hope
and joy were extinguishsd, ho returned

their last respects.

"Then you do not know that Mr.
Lorry la atlll on the Dawsbergen frontier in conference with representatives
from Serros. He may not return for
a week, so Colonel Qulnnox brings
back word."
"It's news to me," murmured Beverly.
"You do not seem to be alarmed," he
ventured. "Yet 1 fancy It Is not a dangerous mission, although Prince Ua-
brlel Is ready to battle at a moment's
"I have the utmost confidence In Mr.

"Moreover, the Axphnlnlans are planning; to attack Ganlook upon tbe first
signal from their ruler. I do not wish
to alarm your highness, but we may as
well expect trouble before we come
to the Ganlook gates. You are known
to be In the pass, and I am certain
an effort will be made to take possession of your person."
"They wouldn't dare!" she exclaimed. "Uncle Sam would annihilate them
In a week."
"Uncle Sam? Is be related to your
Aunt Fanny? I'm afraid he could do
but little against Volga's fighting men,"
be said, with a smile.
"They'd soon find out who Uncle
Sam Is If they touch me," she threatened grandly. He seemed puzzled, but
was too polite to press her for explanations. "But he Is a long way off
and couldn't do much If we were suddenly attacked from ambush, could he?
What would they do to me if I were
taken, as you suggest?" She was more
concerned than she appeared to be.
"With you In their bands, Graustark
would be utterly helpless. Volga could
demand anything she liked and your
ministry would be forced to submit."
"I really think It would be a capital
Joke on the Princess Volga," mused
Beverly reflectively. He did not know
what she meant, but regarded ber soft
smile as the clear title to the serenity
of a princess.
She sank back and gave herself over
to the complications that were likely to
grow out of her involuntary deception.
The one thing which worried her more
than all others was the fear that Yetive
might not be in Edelweiss. According
to all reports, she had lately been In St.
Petersburg, and the mere fact tbat she
was supposed to be traveling by coach
was sufficient proof that she was not
at her capital. Then there was, of
course, the possibility of trouble on the
road with the Axpbain scouts, but Beverly enjoyed the optimism of youth and
Baldos, the goat hunter, was dreamily thinking of the beautiful young woman at his side and of the queer freak
fortune had played In bringing them
together. As be studied her face be
could not but lament that marriage at
least established a barrier between her
and the advances his bold heart might
otherwise be willing to risk. His black
hair straggled down over his forehead,
and his dark eyes���the patch had been
surreptitiously  lifted���were unusually
"It is strange that you live In Graustark and have not seen Its princess���
before," sbe said, laying groundwork
for Inquiry concerning the acts and
whereabouts of the real princess.
"May it please your highness, I have
not lived long In Graustark. Besides,
It Is said that half tbe people of Ganlook bave never looked upon your
"I'm not surprised at that. The proportion Is much smaller than I imagined. I have not visited Ganlook,
strange as It may seem to you."
- "One of my company fell In with
some of your guards from the Ganlook
garrison day before yesterday. He
learned tbat you were to reach that
city witblu forty-eight hours. A large
detachment of men has been sent to
meet you at Labbot."
"Oh, Indeed," said Beverly, very
much Interested.
"They must have been misinformed
as to your route or else your Russian
escort decided to take you through by
tbe lower and more hazardous way.
It was our luck Unit you came by the
wrong road. Otherwise we should not
have met each other, aud the lion," he
said, smiling reflectively..
"Where Is LabbotV" asked she, Intent upon the one subject uppermost iu
ber mind.
"In the mountains many leagues
north of tbls pass. Had you taken that
route instead of this you would by this
time have left I.abbot for the town of
Erros, a half day's journey from Ouu-
look. Instead of vagabonds your escort would bave been made up of loyal
Midlers, well fed, well clad and well
satisfied with themselves at least."
"But no braver, no truer tban my
soldiers of fortune," she said earnestly.
"By the way, are you informed as to
the state of affairs in Dawsbergen?"
"Scarcely as well as your highness
must be," he replied.
"The young prince ��� what's his
name?" she paused, looking to him for
the name.
"Yes, that's It. What has become of
him?   I am terribly Interested In bim."
"He is a fugitive, they say."
"They haven't captured him, then?
Good!   I am so glad!"
Baldos exhibited little or no Interest
In the fresh topic.
"It Is strange you should have forgotten hla name," he said wearily.
"Oh, I do so many ridiculous things!"
complained Beverly, remembering who
sue was supposed to be.   "I have never
seen bim, you know," sbe added.

was called to the throne two years ago.
You remember of course that his mother was nn Englishwoman, Lady Ida
"I���I think I huve heard some of his
history. A very little, to be sure," she
explained lamely.
"Prince Gabriel, his half brother, Is
the sou of Prince Louis III. by his
first wife, who wus a Polish countess.
After her death, wheu Gabriel was
two years old, the prince married Lady
Ida. liuutun Is their sou. He has a
sister, Caudace, who Is but nineteen
years of age."
"I am ashuined to confess that you
know so much more nbout my neighbors than I," she said.
"1 lived In Dawsbergen for a little
while uud was ever Interested lu tbe
doings of royalty. That Is u poor man's
privilege, you know."
"Prince Gabriel must be a terrible
man," cried Beverly, her heart swelling
with tender thoughts of the exiled Duu-
tnu and his little sister.
"You have cuuse to know," said he j
shortly, and she wus perplexed until
Bhe  recalled  the stories of  Gabriel's
misdemeanors   at  the  court  of   Edelweiss.
"Is Prluce Dantan as handsome as
tbey say he Is'/" she asked.
"It Is entirely a matter of opinion,"
be replied. "1 for oue do not consider
him at all prepossessing."
The duy went on, fatiguing, distressing iu Its length aud its happenings.
Progress was necessarily slow, the
perils of the road increasing as the
little cnvulcade wound deeper and
deeper luto the wilderness. There were
times wheu the coach fairly crawled
along the edge of a precipice, u proceeding so hazardous that Beverly
shuddered as If iu a chill. Auut Fanny
slept serenely most of the time, and
Baldos took to dreaming with his eyes
wide open. Contrary to bet* expectations, the Axphulnlaus did uot uppeur.
and if there were robbers in tbe hills
they thought better than to attack the
valorous looking party. It dawned
upou her finally that tbe Axphalniuns
were guarding the upper route and uot
the one over which sbe was traveling.
Yetive doubtless wus approaching Gun-
look over the northern pass, provided
the enemy had uot been encountered
before Labbot was reached. Beverly
soon found herself fearing for the
safety of the princess, a fear which at
last became almost unendurable.
Near nightfall they came upou three
Gruustai-k shepherds aud learued that
Ganlook could not he reached before
the next afternoon. The tired, hungry
travelers spent the night In a suug
little valley through which a rivulet
bounded onward to the river below.
The supper was a scant one, the foragers having poor luck In the hunt for
food. Daybreak suw tbem on their
way once more. Hunger and dread
hud worn down Beverly's supply of
good spirits; she was having difficulty
In keeping the haggard, distressed look
from her face. Her tender, hopeful
eyes were not so bold or so merry as
on the day before; cheerfulness cost
her an effort, but she managed to keep
It fairly alive. Her escort, wretched
nnd half starved, never forgot the deference due to their charge, but strode
steadily  on  with  the  doggedness  of
martyrs. At times she was Impelled to
disclose her true Identity, hut discretion told her that deception was her
best safeguard.
Late iu the afternoon of the second
day the front axle of the coach snapped In two, and a tedious delay of two
hours ensued. Baldos was strangely silent and subdued. It was uot until the
misfortune cume that Beverly observed the Hushed condition of his face.
Involuntarily and with tbe compassion
of a true woman, she touched his hand
and brow. They were burning hot.
The wounded man was in a high fever.
He laughed at her fears and scoffed at
the prospect of blood poisoning and the
hundred other possibilities that suggested themselves to her anxious
"We are close to Ganlook," he said,
with the setting of the sun. "Soon you
may be relieved of your tiresome,
cheerless company, your highness."
"You are going to a physician," she
said resolutely, alive and active once
more, now thut the worst part of the
journey was coining lo au end. "Tell
that inuii to drive In a gallop all the
rest of the way."
before we reach the gates, 1 "know,
nut you have nothing to fear during
as rest of the trip. Franz shall drive

tbe horses to your own men. My

"Ridiculous!" she cried. "I'll not
permit It!   You must go to a hospital."
"If I enter the Ganlook gates It will
be the same as entering the gates of
death," be protested.
"Nonsense! You have a fever or you
wouldn't talk like that. I can promise
you absolute security."
"You do uot understand, your highness."
"Nevertheless, you are going to a
hospital," she firmly said. "You wonld
di<* out here In the wilds, so what are
the odds either way? Aunt Fanny, will
you be careful? Don't you know that
the least movement of those bags hurts

"���'lease do not mind me, your highness.   I am doing very well," he said,

Three children in one family in
Burk's Falls have been cured of serious skin diseases by Zam-Buk.
��� Mrs. Minnie Elliff, of St. John's
West (Welland County), says: "My
baby had a kind of rash on his head
quite a lot of small red spots and
pimples. I applied Zam-Buk and
was delighted with  the result."
Mrs. Goring, of Longford Mil s,
says: "Zam-Buk is a wonderful
healer of ringworm. I tried everything that could be thought of, but
nothing was able to cure until Zam-
Buk came.    It is a fine remedy."
Mrs. Bridges of South Cote, Sask ,
writes: "I used Zam-Buk on baby's
cheeks when they got chilled, with
excellent results. It is the beBt
thing I know for burns, and shall
always keip Zam-Buk  in the house."
Zam-Buk is particularly adapted
to delicate and tender skins. It i.-
free from all mineral coloring mutter and from animal fat, being purely herbal. It heals cuts, burns,
bruises, ulcers, cnupped place's, eczema, ringworm, running sores, bud

A Vile Performance.
On the occasion of his brother's bene
fit Edwin Booth was standing behind
the scenes wheu a character actor who
had been glvlug Imitations of noted
actors was about to respond to an encore.
"Whom do you Imitate next?" lu
quired Booth.
"Well," was the reply, "I was golu*i
to represent you in Hamlet's soliloquy,
but If you look on I'm afraid I shall

"Suppose I Imitate myself?" remark
ed the tragedian, nud, hastily puttim*

that the Imitations ruined the performance, "the personation of Edwin Booth

Some inte.esting statistics huve
been gathered lntely regarding crime.
They show that there is an ularming
increase in the number of murders
���rs the years go by. In 1894 there
were three times as many murders in
the ratio of population lis there ue.e
wenty years ago.    From 1885 to 1'jOii
���ere were 131,951 murders and homi-
���iejes. During the last nine months

tha,. during 1904 there were 104 homicides a million in this country, as
against five a million in the Kaiser's
land. During that year 95.15 per
ceni of those tried for murder were

���Tbe General Belief In Fabulous Monsters In  Olden Days.
Now tbat tbe cold light of science
has thrown Its ray upon the most remote parts of our globe there Is no
longer room for legendary creatures���
save the sea serpent���aud we are told
that the mermaid is nothing more than

Unique  Position Occupied   In  World
of Letters by Publish*!  Carleton.
My experieuoe as ur. authot began
early in 18(17, says Mark Twain in
The North American Keview. 1 came
to New V'oik Irom San Francisco in th*
lirst mouth of that yeai and presently
Charles H. Webb, whom I hud known
in San Francisco as a .leporlar on
The Bulletin, and afterward editor
of The California!!, suggested that 1
publish a volume of sketches. I had
but a slender .reputation to publish
it on, but I was charmed and excited
by the suggestion and quite willing
to venture it if some industrious person would save nie the trouble oi
gathering the sketches together. 1
was loath to do It myself, for from
the beginning oi my sojourn in thiB
world there was a persistent vacancy
in me where the industry ought to be.
("Ought to was" is better, perhaps,
though the most of the authorities
differ as to this.)
Webb said 1 had Rome reputation
in the Atlantic slates, but 1 knew
quite well that it must be ol a very
attenuated sort. What there was ol
it rested upon the story of "The Jumping Frog." When Artemus Ward passed through California on a lecturing
tour, in 1885 or '66, I told him the
"Jumping Frog" story, in San Francisco, and he asked me to *write it
out and send it to his publisher,
Carleton, New York, to be used in
padding out a small book which Artemus had prepared for tho preBs and
which needed Borne more stuffing to
make it big enough for the price which
was to be charged for it.
Webb had made an appointment for
me with Carleton; otherwise I never
should have gotten over that frontier.
Carleton rose and said brusquely aggressively :
"Well, what can I do for you?"
1 reminded him that I waa there
by appointment to offer him my book
for publication. He began to swell,
and went on swelling and'swelling and
swelling until he had reached the dimensions of a god of about the second
or third degree. Then the fountains
of his great deep were broken up, and
for two or three minutes I couldn't
see him for the rain. It was words,
only words, but they fell so densely
that they darkened the atmosphere.
Finally he made an imposing sweep
witli his right hand, which comprehended the whole room and said:
"Books ��� look at those shelves!
Every one of them is loaded with
books that are waiting for publication. Do I want any more? Excuse
cue, I don't.   Good morning."
Twenty-one years elapsed before I
*aw Carleton again. I was then sojourning with my family at the
Schweitzerhof, in Luzerne. He called
on me, shook hands cordially, and
���laid at once, without any preliminaries,
"I am substantially an obscure person, but I have at least one distinction to my credit of such colossal dimensions tliat it entitles me to immortality���to wit: I refused a book
of yours, and for this I stand without a competitor 'as the prize ass of
the nineteenth century."
It was a most handsome apology,
and I told him so, and said it was
a long-delayed revenge but was sweet-

A CSrsat* Engineer.
Sir Alexander-Rehnedy is one oi
the foremost figures in the engineering world. It was in 1875 that Sir
Alexander devised , and established
the engineering laboratory at University College, w'hich was the first of
its kind in this country. He has acted as chief engineer to the Westminster Electric Supply Corporation, limited, since its formation, and designed the whole system of its various
stations. A great number of Scottish
and North of England towns owe their
system of electric lighting to Sir
Alexander's schemes. The South London, electric tramways, and the Waterloo and City Electric Railway - are
other enterprises for the success of
which this distinguished engineer is
in the main responsible. But possibly
Sir Alexander's greatest claim to public gratitude was his unflinching attitude in the matter of engine aud
boiler trials at sea. He emphasized
the necessity of separating the boiler
trials from those of the engine, and
although his ideas were received with
great opposition, he eventually obtained permission to carry out such trials.

Early Settlement of Ontario  Interestingly Dealt With In the Third
Volume of Statistics.
The third annual report of the bureau of archives is a monument to
the industry of the department. Nearly 700 pages of nlosely printed matter,
with maps, plans, portraits, facsimiles
and other material on which the future    Humes,    Macaulays,     Greens,
Froudes, Freemans, Stubbs and Gar-
diners of the future will build their
The general plan of publication
adopted, as stated in tlie preface, defines five periods, ending with 1763
1791, 1841, 1867 and 1900. The first
period covers the French regime, and
material for a volume dealing with it
is being collected. The second includes the beginning of British trade and
the arrival of the (J. E. Loyalists.
LaBt year's report waa concerned with
these matters. The present report
presents documents relating to the
early settlement of Ontario, prior to
the organization of the province in
1791, and consists chiefly of minutes
of the proceedings of the old land
boards of Hesse and Nassau, the latter partially. The minutes of Mecklenburg board have not been recovered.
It may be noted that the province
was then arranged in four divisions.
Lunenburg extended from Lancaster
Township to the Gananoque River;
Mecklenburg from that river to tiie
Trent; Nassau, in which Toronto is
situated, from the Trent to the eastern end of Long Point in Norfolk
County; Hesse from Long Point to the
Detroit River.
One of the more interesting papers
is the MSS. proceedings of the third
session, 1794. A series of papers on the
capitulation of Detroit, presented by
Christopher Robinson, K.C., and documents from the family of Benedict
Arnold, contributed by Larratt W.
Smith, are important. Another valuable collection relates to the heroic
Robert Rogers, commandant of the
famous Rogers' Rangers. A note on
page xiv. deals with the services of
Rooert and his brother James.
Extracts from instructions to the
governorB-general concerning land
contain Bonie notable facts bearing on
the policy intended to be followed
at that time for the public weal.
Section 51, of Dec. 7, 1763, for example, declares: "And whereas great
inconveniences have arisen In many
of our ifcloniea in America from the
granting excessive quantities of land
to particular persons, who have
neither cultivated nor settled it, and
have thereby prevented others more
industrious from improving the
same; in order, therefore, to prevent
the like inconveniences for the future,
you are to take especial care that in
all grants to be made by you and with
the advice and consent of our council, to persons applying for the same.
the quantity be in proportion to their
ability to cultivate.
Another clause, aiming at the encouragement of flax growing, instructs
the "captain-general and governor
chief," as he is oalled, "to take particular care to insert a clause in every
grant of land where any part thereof
IB tit for such production, obliging
the grantee annually to sow a proportionate part ot his grant with hemp oi
flax seed."
Land boards were appointed at the
formation of the districts, to report
on applications for land, and the instructions indicate an appreciation of
the rights of the people which is not
even at this day wholly realized. On
Feb. 17, 1789, rules and regulations
were Issued, one of which reads:
"And to prevent individuals from
monopolizing sucli spots as contain
mines, minerals, fossils and conveniences for mills and other singular advantages of a common and public nature, to the prejudice of the general
Interest of settlers, the governor-general and his agents or deputy surveyors In the different districts, shall confine themselves, in the locations to

the respective boards, to such lands
only as are fit for common purposes
of husbandry, and they shall reserve
all other spots aforementioned, together with all such as may be fit and
useful for ports and harbors, or works
of defence, or such as contain valuable timber for ship building or other
purposes, conveniently situated for
water carriage, in the lands of the
"And the more effectually to prevent abuses, and to put individuals on
their guard in this respect, any certificate of location given contrary to
the true intent and meaning of this
regulation is hereby declared to be
null and void, and a special order of
the governor in council made necessary to pledge the faith of government for granting ot any such spots
a* are directed to be referred."
Governor Siracoe, on Feb. 7, 1792,
issued instructions also "that all
grants reserve to the crown all coals,
commonly called sea-coals, and mines
ot gold, silver, copper, tin, iron and
Lord Dorchester's instructions, Aug.
23, 1786, show the original reason for
the reservation of white pine.

A Backet of Paint Helped tho Oriole*
to Capture the National League
Pennant���The Importance of a "Color Scheme" In Batting.
One of the oddest things that ever
happened on a ball field took place on
tbe west side grounds, in Chicago, in a
game against New York. Anson's men
were playing the Giants, and the victory hung in the balance until In the
ninth Inning, with the score even, BUI
Lange faced Jouet Meekin and rampsed
a certain double to center. There were
two out, and the crowd rose with a yell
of delight when Lange smote tbe ball,
which rolled past Van Haltren.
That ball rolled on and finally disappeared. Van Haltren was on top of It,
but Instead of picking It up be suddenly threw himself flat on the ground,
rammed his right arm Into the earth
and commenced reaching. Lange
meantime kept on. lie turned second,
raced on to third, gave a look outward
and tben sprinted for home, scoring the
winning run.
The ball had rolled Into a hole In the
ground from which a post bad been
pulled that morning, and Van Haltren
had been able only to reach tt with the
tips of his fingers. Tbe next day the
hole was nlledlu.
Upon what small things the results
of baseball depend can be guessed
when It Is known that a forty-five cent
bucket of paint won the National
league pennant for Baltimore two years
in succession. The men who composed
the three times champion Orioles all
admit the fact that the bucket of paint
had more to do with their pennant winning than anything else.
The facts are these: Tbe Orioles
were not hitting. They could not find
out why until one day Willie Keeler
remarked that the ball when pitched
from the pitcher's box was the same
color as the center field fence and tbat
the ball was lost to them against the
dark background. The players set
themselves down to figure it out, and
in the end tbey figured that the reason
they were not hitting was because
there was a lack of relief In the color
scheme of the grounds. Tbe bat boy
was sent In a burr? for a pot of whit*
paint and a patch of the fence In center field exactly on a line with the
pitcher's box, and the plate was daubed white. The paint made a difference
of nearly forty points per man In their
batting averages that season, and tbey
won the pennant.
After that tbe space In center on
most of the big league ball grounds
was kept clear or painted In some
color that would assist the team In Its
. The color scheme in baseball is more
Important tban the casual observer
would suppose. For Instance, the Polo
' grounds are one of tbe hardest grounds
tn the world for an outfielder. Back of
tbe grand stand rises a huge bluff���
��� "Coogan's bluff" ��� and tbe stand is
built partly on the side of the hill.
Naturally the shadow of tbe stand and
the bluff lies heavy over the field as
far out as second base In the late afternoon, and the outfielders have great
difficulty in seeing tbe ball until it rises
out of the shadow and above the sky
line. Tbe players learn to judge balls
by the way they sound against the
bat, but visiting players at the Polo
grounds have a hard time judging line
For years the New York players have
had the advantage because of the color
scheme of tbelr grounds. In center
field Is a panel of color to relieve tbe
batter's eye and show the ball In relief against It, while to mitigate the
effects of the shadow sections of the
front of the stand and even the bowlders on tbe hillside have been painted.
Those mechanical aids for batting are
treat things. Almost every home team
has Its grounds arranged for relief In
color, so that they can by looking at a
certain spot be certain to see the ball.
It Is not necessary for the ball to rise
against the relief background, but It Is
necessary for the player's eye to be
filled wltb the color, so that when be
looks at the ball it stands, out In relief
against the color which still Is Imprinted un the retina of his eye.
One of tbe best hitting pitchers that
ever lived, Walter Thornton, who was
driven out of baseball because of the
personal dislike of an official of the
National league to him, had a schema
which worked well and which he claimed aided hlm in batting. He simply
sat and held his fingers tight against
his eyes for several minutes before going to bat Shutting out all light, he
claimed, rested his eyes after pitching
a hard inning, and he went in to bat
with eyes fresh and steady.
And how he did hit them I How he
did bit them!
Pietre Gladiator Browning tried every treatment possible for his eyes to
keep tbem clear. Smoking a cigarette
on the bench was one of his ideas, and
he carried an eye wash with him which
be poured into his eyes just before going to bat
Most of the schemes of players to
keep tbelr "eyes In," as tbey say, are
ridiculous, but there Is no reason why
a lot of players should not follow literally the advice of tbe bleacherites
| and "see an oculist." Any good oculist can devise a color scheme that will
help the batter.���Hugh S. Fullerton

A man wbo wanted to lecture called
at a bureau presided over by two managers.

unfortunately the senior member was
just starting 011 a trip and would not

The Interest of tlie Junior member,
however, was at white heat, and he
kept sending for the young lecturer, Insisting that he come down to the office
aud read his lecture. The young man
refused with as much tact as possible,
but this only increased the anxiety of
the junior.
At last the young man told of the
promise made the senior partner. Instead of quieting the junior manager,
the announcement made him the more
anxious, nnd finally the young man
The reading ended, the junior partner said:
"Now, your reading this has saved
us all much valuable time. I'll tell you
frankly, my boy, It won't do. There's
no message in It; It Is loosely constructed; the diction Is poor. It won't do.
Burn It and try again."
When tbe senior partner returned he
called up the young lecturer and soundly berated him for breaking faith.
"How do I know you have not been
to every bureau In town? You promised me on your honor you would read
the lecture to nobody���not even to my

Napoleon III. of France, when a
prisoner In the fortress at Ham, wrote
and published a paper on the possibility of Unking the Pacific and Atlantic
oceans by means of a canal. This
created so profound an Impression
that the minister plenipotentiary of
Guatemala offered him tne presidency
of the construction of the Nicaragua
canal. The proposal was followed by
the offer of the presidency of the
Ecuador republic. The latter offer was
conditional upon King Louis Philippe's
releasing the captive and upon the
letter's giving his parole never to return to Europe. Louis Napoleon was
prepared to give bis parole, and Sir
Robert Peel, then prime minister of
Great Britain, was willing to back up
his application for release upon these
terms. Lord Aberdeen, however, would
not hear of It, so the prisoner remained to be president and emperor of his
native land.
The Biblical Auto.
Some one has found a hint, as some
one always does when there Is a new
Invention or discovery, of the automobile In the Bible. It Is the vision of
Nullum, the Elkoshlte, concerning tbe
burden of Nineveh. In the account
given by this seer of the military muster and array of the Medes and Babylonians against the doomed City of
Nineveh the mistress of witchcrafts,
when "the people In the midst of her
were women," tbe Elkoshlte has this
remarkable verse: "The chariots shall
rage In the streets, they shall jostle
one against another In the broad ways,
they shall seem like torches, they shall
run like the lightnings." A variant of
the word "jostle," which the original
Hebrew will, it is said, equally well
or better bear. Is "pass swiftly, with
out particular purpose, to and fro," a
rendering which brings the cars of
tbe Hebrew prophet Into, perhaps,
still closer connection with the motor
cars of the present day.
