It-appears he  met a superannuated'body "snatcher,  who struck him -in the stomach  with a pork sausage, causing him  to have au attack of the collywob-,  bles, and an old lady' who witnessed  the above outrage was so horrified  that she fell down and struck her  head against a feather bolster, causing a wound four feet deep, which  bled so much that it washed an elephant into a ditch ancl drowned a  dog that wasn't there.  Whoever will give such information lo his afflicted parents svill be  kindly resvarded with a tripe medal."  His father earns his living .by carrying tre"acle in a sack, being his only  means of subsistence.

Mrs. Dr. Young, who had been  en a visit to friends and relatives in  eastern, Canada for some time, re-  . turned to town on Tuesday's boat,  having been met at Skagway by the  doctor.  The tugboat Blair Athol was  busy during the early part of the  week collecting logs which were  ' washed over the local lumber company's boom during the gales of  last December.  The firm of Dixon & Schulz lately purchased the complete draying  outfit, including two teams of horses,  drays, sleighs, etc.,-which were formerly operated,by Mr. J. Christian.  Early this week Mr.*Chas. Queen  paid a deposit on the purchase price  ior the ranche of Jas. Cullen, which  is.situated at the south end of Surprise lake. The consideration is  reported to be $1,000.  E. Rosselli received a wire this  week - stating that R. A.

Jas. McPeak and Hy, Kimball,  two of the "would sooner sleep than  work" and "sure thing" variety of  biped who arrived in camp last  week, have had their records looked  up by the police and on Thursday  they were given an audience at the  office of Chief of Police Owen, who  withdrew from them the freedom of  the camp and notified them to leave  on yesterday's boat, which they did.  Mr. J. A. Smith, formerly manager of the Canadian Bank of Commerce at Fort Frances, Ont., arrived  in Atlin Saturday last to take over  the management of the local branch  of that institution from Mr. Donald  Ross, who has been appointed manager of Skagway branch of the bank,  Mr. Ross, who had resided in Atlin  for over three and a half years and  had made friends by the score, left  on Tuesday for his new post and  was escorted to the boat by a large  numbers of well-wishers who gave  him three cheers and a "tiger"  when the Scotia left her wharf. A  few hours prior to his departure, Mr.  Ross was waited on by a number of  his frienda and presented with a  handsome gold watch. (  ,        Mining Notes.  High water has not occurred as  yet this season  on Boulder creek.  Tom Vatighan and Pat Foley are  busily engaged pushing development work on their Fourth of July  quartz properties.  Mr. H:B. Warreu, financial agent  for the Northern Mines Ltd., and  Mr. G. E. Mitchell, engineer for lhe  company's steam .shovel, arrived  from Vancouver yesterday.  Jake Christian went to Fourth of  Tuly creek this week to commence  further development work on three  quartz   claims   in   which" he holds  large interests.        ' '  The damage which was caused  the early part of last week by a land  slide on Spruce ou Lambert and  Reams' and- adjoining claims has  been repaired and sluicing, .has been  resumed.  E.. J. de Lamare, manager for the]  Societe Miniere on Boulder creek,  svas in town for a few hours Monday and informed us that the operations of his company are proving  ver3*7 successful from both standpoints of yardage ,of gravel being  moved and value of gold obtained.  On Saturday last an earth slide  caused some damage to that portion  of the . ditch of the Spruce Creek  Power' Co. which is directly opposite  the pit of the Northern Mines Ltd.  The slide svas from the hillside above  the ditch, which was completely  filled for several yards. It was indeed fortunate for the3'Northern  Mines Ltd. that the water was not  flowing through the'ditch when the  slide occurred, for, had such'" been  the .case'the compauy's-pit would  have been washed full "of gravel  from the sldehill, thereby causing  tremenduous damage and delay of  operations. -:  .  The Amalgamated McKee Hydraulic Co., S. H. Plumbe manager,  had their first clean-up of the season  ou Monday, when from 4-oJieet of  their 50 odd feet of riffles they obtained 433 ounces of gold, netting  close on $7,000 for a 17 days' run.  Piping was commenced 10 days  earlier than last season and, with  a judicious use of powder both for  bull-dozing and in drifts, a large  3rardage of gravel has been moved  with most satisfactory results. As  operations were somewhat hampered  by some 'difficulty with tailings at  the opening of the season, the manger is well satisfied with the first  clean-up of'06 aiid is confident that  bis company will score another successful season's output.
