Tlie police of Nashville, Tenn.,  are (looking for a man who is annoying a leading society girl of that  city by writing.her love.letters.

Fleet  Robertson's' report on the Windy  Arm -district. The report is too  long   for   us  to  re-produce but we  class   'of igneous rocks seen on  west side of the Arm.  "Iu tlie vicinity of the British  Columbia boundary, about a mile to  the east of Windy Arm, a mass of  'limestone was noted on the mountain side and, from float seen near  by, il. is probable that a baud of  slate will be found on this side of  the Arm, although its location has  not been fixed. The contact of  these seclimenlaiies with the igneous  rocks, .so prominent in this district,  must   be looked   upon  as likely lo  Why gitxn our wiusn you can get goods as ciihai- iieiii-. ?

The provincial mineralogist took  samples from the upper and .lower  portions of the vien of the Conrad  Consolidated '.group, representing  the two classes of'ore rather than  the average. These he took to Victoria, where they were assayed by  the government assayer. The results obtained were as follows:  No. 1.���Galena from the lower  portions of the vein���Gold, $15.60;  silver, 442 ounces to the ton.  No. 2.���The vein quartz well  mineralized���Gold, $7.60; silver,  113 ounces to the ton.  No. 3.���The "fines" broken in  sorting the ore from both portions  of vein���Gold, $17.60; silver, T63  ounces to the ton.  Mr. Robertson extended his trip  to - the foot of the Arm, on the  British Columbia side of the line,  aud his opinion of? this portion of  the-district is given below.  Iu speaking of the locations already made on both sides of the line  he says: "These locations, however, indicate that  THTi  MINEKAI.I/.KD   KTU/r  will be found to pass into British  Columbia, and that on such extension there is a promising field for  the prospector.  "The shore of the Arm was i'ol-  "lowed down to its southern end and  the ridge to the west was found to  continue unbroken, save where cut  into by a couple of creeks.  ' 'The geological conditions existing iu the vicinity of the Montana  claim appeared to continue to the  southward into British Columbia  territory and past the southern end  ol the Arm. The only exception to  this was that within half a mile of  the south end of the Arm abed of  hard, dark slate cropped out on the  west shore, its contact with the  overlying igneous rocks being  masked by the surface soil.  A prospector reported that this  same slate is cut al an elevation of  several hundred feet above the lake  by Boundary creek, a creek that  flows into the Arm from the west  almost exactly on the 60th parallel.  This contact, when traced out,  should prove a profitable field for  prospecting and is  WOKTHY OK  SKKIOUS   INVESTIGATION.  "On the east side of the Arm the  mountains are even more precipitous  than on the west, and seem to consist for the most part  of   the  same  ALASKA-VUKON FAIR.  The   Atlin   district   has beeu in-_  vited to participate iu the above fair  and four of our citizens   have   been  placed on the fair directorate.  The Seattle Times says:    Godlrey  Chcalander is getting down Lo business on the proposed Alaska-Yukon  fair   to  be held in this cilv durinc  the summer of 1907.    lie is formulating plans to make this exposition  not   only one   of the best and most  complete ever held in   this country,  but certainly one of the most unique.  A  splendid   organization   has been  effected all over   Alaska   and   the  Yukon   and British Columbia territories in the north,, whereby it  will  be   possible   to   gather material fo'r  exhibition  purposes  on   a comprehensive scale.    The project is being  received   enthusiastically,  aud   the  people  of the north have only one  idea, and that is of surprising   the  world with the showing they will be  able   to   make.      Mr.   Chealander,  the president, has added the following   new   directors to represent tlie  Atlin    district   on   the   exposition  board:    F.   H.   Brackett,  Louis A.  Ginaca. R. D.

But then, where  would "baby" get off, for, although  dogs may be deaf, we would not accuse our local canines of being  dumb.

We were unable to give ,an account of the finish of the spelling  malch last week as wc went to press  before its conclusion.  Thejuuioi learn from Discovery  won after a very ci editable showing.  The seuiois wet e ably icpresented  for Allin by Maud Haslc-tt,. Nellie  Stables, Alan and Dyal Fia��er, and  for Discoveiy by Harry Mobley,  Chas. Bruce, Robert ' Roxborough  and Jessie Anderson. The contestants tossed the words off with almost contemptuous indiffeieuce for  the iiist ten minutes, when a miss  by Roxboiough left a gap in the  Discovery ranks. After a spiiited  contest for nearly fiileen minutes  Maucb Haslett failed and the sides  now stood thiee against llnee. Eyal  Fraser and Nellie Stables went down  one after the other, leaving Alan  Fraser to fight alone for Atlin".  Hairy Mobley failed on "mischievous,',' a woid that he should know  all about. He was shoil'y followed  by Jessie Anderson. Alan Fiaser  succumbed to the word "hoiseshoe"  and Chailie Bruce was left as a winner in the senior grade, thus sharing  the honors with his brother Hany,  who had carried off the palm in the  junior division.  The contest, as a whole, was very  instructive and the interest evinced  by the parents.aud friends of the  pupils who were present was gratifying to the pupils themselves and  stirred them on lo their best efforts.  Both teachers report a marked improvement since training for the  match began aud they consider that  such friendly contests during the  winter will enliven and keep up the  interest ofthe pupils  in their work.  Harry and Charlie Bruce, the  winners of the matches, besides being-presented with books by Messrs.  Tbain and Reid respectively, each  received a suitable present from Mr.  E. D. Pillman.
