All of our meats  are chosen to suit the tastes  ���f the meat critical in Greenwood by ua.  u,  Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  .(Continued from last week )  In the Rendell block, and adjoining  the Bank of Montreal, is the firm of  Barclay & Co., successors to Rendell  & Co., the oldest firm in Greenwood,  who commenced business when the  town-was laid off 14 years ago. John  Barclay bought out the business in  October, 1908, after being manager  for the company for some years, and  carries ladies' dry goods of every dis-  cription and only the best grades  With Miss Goddard as accountant,  Miss Dines and Mr. Barclay in the  store, and Miss Brown as milliner,  the firm has eyery requisite for the  ladies of the Western Boundary, and  if obliging politeness and accommodation count for anything, Barclay &  Co. richly deserve the patronage of  the district.  T. Gulley & Co., furniture dealers, came to Greenwood in 1897, and  opened up in their present quarters on  Copper street, in the fall of that year.  The store originally was a two-story  board* building, on one lot, and the  upper part was used as the first meeting place of the Greenwood Masons.  Since those days the store has been  greatly enlarged, and on the lot immediately behind the store undertaking parlors have been erected. T.  Gully & Co., under the able management of E. Foyle Smith, are the leading furniture dealers in Greenwood.  Jack Clark has charge of the undertaking department.  Holmes & Kennedy, stationers,  candy, tobacco and notion dealers,  have been in the business since May,  1904, and cater to the wants of all  who smoke, read and enjoy the sweets  of life. They have a comfortable ice  cream parlor, which is largely patronized. Fred Holmes is the senior  member of the firm, and has been in  Greenwood since January, 1896.  Fred has turned his hand since then  to anything and everything and has  made a success jn all he has undertaken. Both Mr. Holmes and Mr.  Kennedy are well known and liked,  and the store is the meeting place for  all who enjoy a smoke and a good  yarn.  Ed. W. Bishop, plumber, etc., has  a store on Copper street, and enjoys  the entire patronage of Greenwood.  Mr. Bishop has been here about 9  years and is one of the most popular  merchants here. He is the owner of  a well appointed residence overlooking the town. In his absence the  business is ably managed by George-  Clerf.  L.   L.   Matthews,   who   runs the  A-l cigar store, next door to the Pacific hotel, is a man of many duties.  Besides his large tobacco business,  Mr. Matthews attends to the receipt  and shipment of goods by the Midway, Phoenix and West Fork stages,  also taking orders for the B. C.  Transfer Co., which is owned by  Wm. Fleming. Mr. Matthews  bought out the previous owner last  June and has already built up a substantial business.  Logan & Co., jewelers, are located in the Guess brick block, Copper street, and came here in October,  1902. They bought out the business  of George Miller, and have since enjoyed the patronage of the district.  For the size of the town, they have  a very large stock of cut. glass and  jewelry to suit every taste and are a  most obliging and ��� accommodating  firm. Every kind of repairing in  watches and jewelry is attended to  promptly.  The harness and saddlery store on  Copper street is conducted by A. A.  Frechette, a Boundary old timer, who  came to the district eleven years ago  and originally located in Grand Forks.  Mr. Frechette moved to this town in  1907 and attends to the equine suitings of the whole Boundary. Anything for horses made of leather can  be procured or manufactured by Mr.  Frechette. He also runs a. bicycle  repair shop and has many good machines for hire.  The Greenwood Liquor Co., proprietor James McCreath, is one , of  the oldest firms in town. The wholesale liquor business was originally run  by R. Wood & Co., on Government  street, in the early days. They afterwards became the Rendell Co., and  sold their wholesale liquor department  to R. Griegor, wfoh ormed the British Columbia Liquor Co. in 1899.  James McCreath came to Greenwood  in 1899, to open up a hardware store,  but he joined W. W. Howe in establishing a bottling works for all  kinds of soft drinks. Mr. Howe left  Greenwood in 1902, and Mr. McCreath two years later bought out Mr.  Griegor and incorporated the Greenwood Liquor Co. in 1904 The  business is conducted in the Sperry  brick block on Copper street, and the  bottling works are in the same capacious building. Mr. McCreath carries a. $20,000 stock and handles  cigars, wines, ales and all the requisite  soft drinks, and does a large business  throughout the Boundary and the  Similkameen. He is assisted by his  son, Jim McCreath, who is the proud  possessor of Greenwood's only auto  car.  This article continued next week.  LANDMARKS  ���Y>V��M^  *��.W'"7 ������'  'Z'-Wyy.-���-..

The tearing down of five buildings at once,  on  the corner of  Greenwood and Copper streets, to  make,  room   for   the new  brick  block, marks the disappearance of  old Greenwood   land  marks, dating from 1895,   and  brings  back  memories of   tbe early days of  this.town.   On ''rreenwood street,  the  largest of the board  buildings was originally a quick lunch  counter, which gave place to the  Bank of Com'meree  for  awhile,  and which relapsed into  restaurant ways when, the  bank  moyed  into  its present quarters  in the  Naden-Flood   block,   on   Copper  street.    Next door was  the   fruit  store and eating bouse conducted  by Mrs.   Kerfoot,   long departed  from Greenwood.   Between it and  the White Bros: drug store, Wm.  Paton and his brother had their  mining   and   real    estate   office,  where many a good deal was consummated   ten   years   ago.      The  large corner  store  was occupied  by   the   Miller    Brothers'   drug  store and jewelry   business   for  five years,   by  the  White Brothers' drug  and  Logan   Brothers'  jewelry   business   for  ten years,  while   up   stairs   the  rooms resounded  many a night  with revelry,   song and   generous hospitality.    Again, next door  to the  corner,  was  the stationery  and  book store conducted by   Harry  King, genial good  fellow, whose  departure  from  Greenwood   was  universally regretted at the time  of   his wife's   sad   death.    The  premises were  later occupied by  the club conducted by Fred Munn  and were the general  headquarters for the mining population ot  that day.    Since then Torn Hemmerle located  his tonsorial parlors there,  only  to move to his  new  location  further   down the  street a  week  ago.    Next door  was the office of Arthur  Mowat,  Sir Oliver's son, and the Palmer  Brothers, who were interested in  stocks   and   real   estate.     What  tales these buildings could  have  told of the early days,  and now  they are gone.  A fine brick block  will replace them, but those who  remember the old days will be  sorry to see them go, even  for a  brick block.  WILL REVISIT  THE BOUNDARY  RETURNED AFTER  Father Bedard, of tbe Sacred  Heart church iu Greenwood, returned from Vancouver last Monday after a three weeks' retreat.  He spent a day iti Bellinghaui on  his way to Vancouver and says i be made out  the town is flourishing, and busi- j telescope  ness good in all the coast cities,  especially Seattle and Vancouver.  While in Vancouver some 22  priests assembled to meet the  venerable Archbishop Donteu-  will, formerly bishop of Westminster, and now Superior General ot the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, au order of world wide  influence and one which is devoted to missionary work in many  countries, of which Father Bedard is a member.  On Sunday, September 5, after  retreat, Archbishop Dontenwill  consecrated Father Joussard co.  adjutor bishop to Bishop Grou-  ard, of Peace River.  The parishouers of St. Peter's  cathedral presented Mgr. Dontenwill with a beautiful address last  month, and last week the citizens  of Vancouver presented the archbishop with a parting gift of  $1,000 and an address.  Before returning to Rome Archbishop Dontenwell will visit  many of his friends in the interior, and those who have  already had the pleasure of meeting his grace will be glad to hear  of his expected visit to Greenwood.

The map is handsomely printed in  colors on heavy map paper.  The information upon it is corrected up to July 1st, 1909. A  glance at the map will show a  person exactly how any particular area in the Belt stands, colors being used to indicate lands  that have been dealt with in any  way. For instance, all home-  steaded lands are marked in  yellow, sales, special grants,  mining lands sales, in red; lands  disposed of by Provincial Government in grey; Indian Reserves in  pink; forest reserves and parks in  green border; timber berths in  green hatching; grazing leases in  brown hatching. There are also  figures as to the acreage included  under each of these headings.  In addition all available information regarding railways, post  officies and topographical features of the- provincial lands adjoining the Belt have been inserted so that the map provides useful information with respect to  a comparatively large part of the  Province. In fact the map covers British Columbia from north  of the railway belt right down to  the United States border, including the Boundary country, the  Arrow and Kootenay Lake regions, and the Crows Nest district.  To make the map complete an  insert has been added, under the  title, showing the lower coast  line and a portion of Vancouver  Island.  The map was prepared under  the direction of Mr. R. E. Young,  Superintendent of Railvjay Land,  Department of the Interior,  Ottawa. It is to be issued to the  public tree and applications sent  to Mr. Young will be promptly  dealt with.  METALS.

Russia has been invaded by a  German balloon, which was stepped at the frontier garrison, and  then allowed to proceed.  A Women's Aerial league has  been formed in London for the  purpose of fostering the development of aviation in England.  The French government will  supply Spain with a dirigible balloon of 6,000 cubic meters for use  at the seat ot war in Morocco.  The Rheims aeroplane regatia  has set an example which will be  followed by other nations. England will hold a similar meeting  soon.  The Bayard-Clement dirigible  balloon, which was wrecked recently in France during thc trials  at Maisons-Laritte, attained a  record height of 4,500 foet and  remained aloft for an hour.  ���Vancouver will hold a llyersmeet  at its exhibition next vear, and  $25,000 and a golden cup is being  used as bait to get Glenn Curtis.

The "peach basket" scoop-  shovel, merry widow, inverted  dishpans, decorated waste paper  baskets and like feminine adornments are now behind the times.  The aeroplane hat is tbe latest.  What next?  Lloyd George, chancellor of the  excequer, after a visit to Rheims,  says: "As to the use of the aeroplane in warfare, it appears ti>o  frail and flimsy to be taken seriously, and I apprehend no danger  of any airship invasion."  Reginald Hunt, a carpenter of  Edmonton, has constructed an  airship. After three vears his  efforts were crowned with success  last week and residents of Ed- .  monton were startled at tho ap-  piration of an airship high over  their houses carrying the inventor.

Will the householder, when the  aviator becomes entangled with  his conservatory, have a right to  treasure trove or capture? Will  you and I calmly listen when the  reckless minion of the air drops  through our roof, and does not  stop till he gets through more  than one story?  The birds of plumage, gay and  bright, the birds, who cheer us  heavier bipeds with their song,  will leave the shores of civilization and soar to parts unknown,  when the ambitious bird man invades their hitherto exclusive territory and mars our heavenly  skies with his extended wings.  Will the editor, whose flights  have up to now been limited to  his imagination, be allowed to  soar in the infinite blue while he  collects his copy and uh accounts,  the latter being often in the air.  It is a hard world, and a free  flight to a cool cloud will he a  welcome diversion, but someone  will have to pay the chauffeur,  and in the meantime we want protection from the birdmau for non-  fl yers.

The entire amount  of our outlay for last year was  $12,000,000, and whe*. the liberality of some of the larger centres  is accounted for the general'"at-  fcitude, especially that of rural  districts, toward the common  school, as expressed in their cost  ot maintenance, is discouraging.  There is no work in the community to be compared with that  which is accomplished by the  common school. There is no  person to whom society is under  as great obligation as the common school teacher, and yet the  man who labors on our streets is  paid better wages.

The ex.u-1 nature of the legislation under which thc present  Moat Inspection Servici* is conducted in Canada is not. clearly  underslo.-d by a great many people.  The Federal government has  absolutely the power of inspection of articles exported Irom the  Dominion, or from one Province  to another, but it has not the  power to enforce a similar inspection of articles the trad*, of which  is confined within tbe boundaries  of any one province.  Since 1872 this is a matter dealt  with altogether by the provincial  authorities, and one which has  not in this province received  sufficient attentiun. Provision is  made either by the Municipal act  or the Public Health act of each  province, and in some cases bv  both, for the establishment and  carrying on of municipal mea1.  inspection.

God  forgave, but she had not forgiven.  Smarting tears scorched hor eyelids.  For Harry Sanderson the music was  the imprisoned memory, crying out  strongly in the first tongue it had  found. The slumbering ciutilities that  had stirred uneasily nt sight of the  face on tho balcony awoke. Wiio he  was aud had been he knew no more  than before, but the new writhing self  consciousness, starting from Its sleep  with almost a sense of shock, became  conscious of the gaping crowd, the  dusty street, the red sunset and of  himself at the end of a vulgar brawl  sawing a violin iu silly braggadocio In  a hotel doorway.  The music faltered and broke off.  The bow dropped at his feet. lie  picked it up fiiniblingly and turned  back Into the oflice as a man entered  from a rear door. Tlio newcomer was  Michael Halloran, tho hotel's proprietor, short, thickset and surly. Asleep  in his room, lie had neither seen the  fracas nor heard the playing. He saw  instantly, however, that something unusual was forward and, blinking on  the threshold, caught sight of the man  who was handing the violin back to its  -owner. He clinched his fist with a  ���scowl, and started toward him.  His wife caught his arm.  "Oh, Michael, Michael!" she cried.  "Say nothing, lad! Ye should have  heard him play!"  "Play!" he exclaimed. "Let him go  fiddle'to his side partner, Prendergast,  and-the other riffraff he's run with the  year past!" He turned blackly to Harry. "Take yourself from this house,  Hugh Stires!" he said. "Whether all's  true that's said of you I don't say, but  you'll not come here!"  Harry had turned veiy white. With  the-spoken name���a name how familiar!  ���his eyes had fallen to the ring ou his  finger���the ring with the initials H. S.  A sudden comprehension had darted to  his mind. A score of circumstances  that had seemed odd stood out now in  a, baleful light. The looks of dislike in  the barroom, the attitude of tlie street,  this angry diatribe, all smacked of acquaintance, and not alone acquaintance, but obloquy. His name was  Hugh Stires! He belonged to this very  town! And he was a man hated, despised, forbidden entrance to an uncouth hostelry, an unwelcome visitant  even in a barroom. He turned to Felder and said in a low voice to him,  not to the*'hotel keeper or to the roomful:  "When I entered {his town today 1  did not know my name or that I had  ever set foot In It before. I was struck  by a train a month ago and remember  nothing beyond that time. It seems  that the town knows me better than I  know myself."  He turned quietly aud walked out of  the door. Pavement and street were a  hubbub of excited talk. The- groups  parted as he came out, and he passed  between them with eyes straight before him.  As he turned down the street a fragment of quartz thrown with deliberate  and venomous aim flew from the saloon doorway. It grazed his head,  knocking off his hat.  Tom Felder had seen the flying missile, and he leaped to the center of the  street with rage in his heart. "If I  find out who threw that," he said, "I'll  Re-     him up for it, so help me God!"#  Harry stooped and picked up his hat  aud as he put it on again turned n  moment toward the crowd. Then he  walkecCon down the middle of the  street, his eyes glaring, his face white.  Into the dusky blue of the falling twilight  ���***fN-  C Kapler 14 (>  HE scene In the hotel office had left Jessica ln  a state of mental dis-  truction in which reason was in abeyance.  In the confusion she  had slipped into the little sitting room  unnoticed, feeling a sense almost of  physical sicknesB, to sit in the half  light listening to the diminishing  ndlses of the spilling crowd. She was  wind swept storm tossed, in the grip  of primal emotions. The surprise had  shocked her, and the strange appeal of  ���the violin had disturbed her equipoise.  The significant words of awakening  spoken ln the office had come to her  distinctly. In their light she had read  the piteous puzzle of that gaze that had  held her motionless on the balcony.  Hugh had forgotten the past���all.of It  Its crime, its penalty. In forgetting  the past he had forgotten even her,  his wife. Yet in some mysterious way  her face had been familiar to him. It  had touched for an instant the spring  of the befogged memory.  As she spurred through the transient  twilight, past the selvage of the town,  and into the somber mountain slope,  she struck the horse sharply with her  ���crop. He who had entrapped her, who  had married her under the shadow of a  criminal act, who hud broken her future with his, when his whole bright  life had crashed down in black ruin���  ���could such a one look as he had looked  at her? Could he make such music  that had wrung her heart?  All at once the horse shied violently,  ���almost unseating her. A man was lying by the side of the road, tossing  and muttering to himself. She forced  the tnrwfiKng animal closer and, lean-  ins from the saddle, turw who it was.  '/t'x Stires.'  In a moment she was off and beside  the prostrate form, a spasm of dread  clutching at her throat tit sight of the  nerveless limbs, tlie chalky pallor of  the brow, the fever spots iu the cheeks.  A wave of pity swept over her. He  was ill and alone. lie could not be left  there. He must have shelter. She  looked fearfully about her. What could  she do? In tliat town, whose intolerance and dislike she had soeu so Actively demonstrated, was there no one  who would care for him? She turned  her head, listening to a iicariugsound���  footsteps wore plodding up the road.  She called, and  presently a pedestrian cnierg-  cd from the half  dark and came  toward her.  He bout over  lhe form she  showed him.  "it's Stires."  lie en Id with  a chuckle. "1  heard he'd come  back."Tliocliue-  kle turned to a  cough, and he  t shook his head.  J^ "Tliis    is    sad!"  S*** ** You could never  believe how 1  have labored  with the boy, but"���he turued out his  hands���"you see, there is the temptation.    It is his unhappy weakness."  Jessica remembered the yellow,  smirky face now. She had passed him  on the day Tom Folder had walked  with her from the Mountain Valley  House, and the lawyer had told her he  lived in the cabin just below the Knob,  where she so often sat. She felt a  quiver of repulsion.  "He is not intoxicated," she said  coldly. "He is ill. You know him,  then?"  "Know him!" he echoed aud laughed���a dry, cackling laugh. "I ought to.  And I guess he knows me." He shook  the inert arm. "Get up. Hugh!" he  said.   "It's Prendergast!"  There flashed through her mind the  phrase of the surly hotel keeper, "His  side partner, Prendergast!" Could it  be? Had Hugh really lived in the cabin on which she had so often peered  down during those past weeks? And  with this chosen crony!  She touched Prendergasfs arm. "He  is ill, I say," she repeated. "He must  ,oe cared for at once. Your cabin is on  the hillside, isn't itr_.  ."His cabin," he corrected. "A rough  place, but it has sheltered us both. I  am but guide, philosopher and friend."  She bit her lips. "Lift him on my  horse," she said. She stooped and put  her bauds under the twitching shoulders. "I will help you. I am quite  strong."  With her aid he lifted the swaying  form on to the. saddle aud supported  it, while Jessica led the way.  "Here is the cutoff." he said presently. "Ah, you know it!" for she had  turned into tlie side path that led  along the hill, under the gray, snakelike flume���the shortest route to the  grassy shelf on which the cabin stood.  Tlie byway was steep aud rugged,  and rhododendron clumps caught at  her ankles, and once she heard a snake  slip over the dry rustle of leaves, but  she went on rapidly, dragging at the  bridle, turning back now and then  anxiously to urge the horse to greater  speed. She scarcely heard the offensively honeyed compliments which  Prendergast offered to her courage. ���  It seemod-au eternity they climbed.  In reality It was scarcely twenty minutes before they reached the grassy  knoll and the cabin, whose crazy  swinging door stood wide to the night  air. She tied the horse, went in and  at Prendergasfs direction found  matches and lit a candle. The bare,  two room interior it revealed was unkempt and disordered. Rough bunks,  a table and a couple of hewn chairs  were almost its only furniture. "The  window was broken and the roof admitted sun and raiu. Prendergast laid  the man they had brought on one of  the bunks and threw over him a shabby blanket.  "My dear young lady." he said, "you  are a good Samaritan. How shall we  thank you, my poor friend here and  I?"  Jessica had taken money from her  pocket, and now she held it out to  him. "He must have a doctor," she  said.  "You must fetch one."  The yellow eyes fastened ou the bill,  even while his gesture protested. "You  shame me!" he exclaimed. "And yet  you are right. It is for him." He  folded it and put it into his pocket.  "As soon ns I have built a fire I will  go for our local medico. He will not  always come at the call of the luckless miner. All are not so charitable  as you."  He untied her horse and extended a  hand, but she mounted without his  help. "He wili thank you one day,  tbis friend of mine," he said, "far better than I can do."  "It is uot at all necessary to tell  him," she replied frigidly. "The sick  are always to be helped in every circumstance."  She gave her horse the rein as she  spoke and turned him up the steep  path that climbed back of the cabin,  past the Knoli, and so by a narrow  trail to the mountain road.  August Prendergast stood listening  to the dulling hoof beats a moment,  then re-entered the cabin. The maD on  the bunk had lifted to a sitting position. His eyes wore open, dazed and  staring.  "That's right" the older man said.  "You're coming round. How does it  feel to be back in the old shebang?  Can't guess how you got here, can  you ? You were towed on horseback by  a beauty, Hugliey. my boy���a rip staving beauty! I'll tell you about It in the  morning If you're good."  The man he addressed made no answer. His eyes were on the other. Industrious and bewildered.  "I heard about the row," went on  Prendergast "They didn't think It  was in you, and neither did I." Ho  looked at him cunningly. "Neither did  Moreau, eh, eh? You're a clever one,  Hugh, but the lost memory racket  won't stand you in anything. You  hadn't any call to get scared In the  first place.   1 don't tell all I know."  He shoved the candle nearer on the  table. "There's a queer look In your  face, Hugh!" he said, with a clumsy  attempt at kindness. "That rock they  threw must have hurt you. Feel sort  of dizzy, eh? Never mind, I'll show  you a sight for sore eyes. You went off  without your share of the last swag,  but I've saved it for yon. Prendergast  wouldn't cheat a pal!"  From a cranny in the clay chinked  wall he took a chamois skin bag. It  contained a quantity of gold dust and  small nuggets, which he poured into  a miner's scales ou the table and proceeded to divide In two portions. This  accomplished, be emptied one of the  portions on to a paper and pushed it  out.  "That's yours," he said.  Harry's eyes were on his with a  piercing intensity now, as though they  looked through him to a vast distance  beyond. He was staring through a  gray midst at something far off, but  significant, that eluded his direct  vision. The board table, the yellow  gold, the flickering candlelight, recalled something horrifying. In some other  world, In some other life, millions of  ages ago.  He lurched to his feet, overturning  the table. The gold dust rattled to the  floor.  "Your deal!" he said. Then, with a  vague laugh, he fell side wise upon tbe  bunk.  August Prendergast stared at him  with a look of amazement on his yellow face. "He's crazy as a chicken'*  he said.  He sat watching him awhile, then  rose and kindled a fire on the unswept  hearth. From a Utter of cans and  dented utensils in a corner he pro  ceeded to cook himself supper, after  which he carefully brushed up the  scattered gold dust and returned it all  to its hiding place. Lastly he rummaged on a shelf and found a vial  This proved to be empty, however,  and he set it on the table.  "I guess you'll do well enough without any pain killer," he said to himself. "Doctors are expensive. Anyway, I'll be back by midnight"  He threw more- wood on the fire,  blew out the candle and, closing tbe  door behind him, set off down the  trail to the town, where a faro bank  soon acquired the bill Jessica had civ-  en him.  T was pitch dark-whet  Jessica reached the.san  itarinm, though she went  like a whirlwind, tho  chill damp smell of the  dewy balsams In ber nostrils, the dust rising ghostlike behind  the rapid hoofs. She found David  Stires anxious and peevish over ber  late coining.  She felt a relief when the old man  grew tired and was wheeled to-bis  bedroom.  Left alone, her reflections retained.  She began to be tortured. She (tried  to read. The printed characters swam  beyond her comprehension. At length  she drew a hood over her head: and  stole out on to the wide porch.  It was only 9 o'clock, and along the  gravel paths that wound among the  shrubbery a few dim forms were stroll  ing. She caught tbe scent of a cigar  and the sound of a woman's laugh.  The air was crisp and bracing, wltb  a promise of frost and painted leaves.  She gazed down across the dark  gulches toward the town, a straggling  design pricked in blinding yellow  points. Halfway between, folded ln  the darkness, lay the green shelf and  the cabin to which her thought recurred with a kind of compulsion.  There was no moon, but the start  were glowing like tiny green gilt coals,  aud the yellow road lay plain and  clear. With a sudden determination  she drew her light cloak closely about  her. stepped down, sped across the  grass to a footpath and so to the road.  As she ran on down the curving stretch  under the trees the crackling slip of  bank paper that lay in ber bosom  seemed to buru her flesh. She was  stealing away to gaze upon the outcast who had shamed and humbled  her���going, she knew not why, with  burning cheek and hammering heart  She slipped through tbe side trail to  the cabin with a choking sensation.  She stole to the window and peered  in. In the firelight she could Bee the  form on the bunk, tossing and muttering. Otherwise the place was empty.  She lifted the latch softly and entered.  The strained anxiety of Jessica's  look relaxed as she gazed about ber.  She saw the vial on the table. The  doctor had been there, then. If be  were in serious case, Prendergast  would be with him. She threw back  her hood, drew one of the chairs to  tbe side of the bunk and sat down, ber  eyes fixed on his face. The weakness  and helplessness of his posture strode  through and through her. Two sides  of her were struggling In a chaotic  combat for mastery.  "I hate youl    I  hate your' she  (Continued next week.)

Tonkin and associates, of  Webb City, Mo., have closed a  deal with the Granby Mining &  Smelting Co. for a 45-acre lease  developed by the Hill Top Co. at  Oronogo. The new owners announce that two new concentrating plants will be erected here in  the near future.  . Zinc, tbe once despised of all  metals, is now having its turn.  The steady and very marked advance in spelter is causing an active revival in a large number of  mining camps in every part of  the United States. Many mines,  idle for some time past, are being  reopened and will return handsome profits.  The mica mines at the head of  Yellow creek, in thd Big Rend,  whii h are being operated by J. P.  M n*die, pri mi^e to be unusually  extensive. A modern plant will  b' i:st;illc(l at once and Mr.  Moodii bus liiid plans for operating on an extensive scale. The  Canadian General Electric company has promised to take all the  mica that this mine will produce  and thus is Mr. Moixlie assured  of a market.  We are accustomed to thinking  that unions have to do exclusively  with     miners'     bricklayers,    engineers,    printers     and    kindred  trades, but it  would   appear  thai  we have a union   among lawyers,  and that this union   is mire arbitrary   in   its   methods   than   au\  other   would   dare    to   he.

The door is  strongly braced  The following petition, signed  by the leading residents of the  West Boundary district, has been  sent to the Hon. Louis P. Brodeur, Minister of Marine and  Fisheries, at Ottawa:  The petition of the undersigned residents and voters in the District o.  Yale, Province of British Columbia,  showtth:  That the Kettle River in British  ColumbiaVerripties into the Columbia,  river, and Hah come up from aud out  the Columbia river into and np the  Kettle river.  Some years ago a dam was built  across the Kettle river, at Cascade, in  the above district, without putting in  a fish ladder, thus preventing any fish  from continuing there from up the  Kettle river.  The attention of the Inspector of  Fisheries was called to the matter by  the Kettle river Game and Fish Protective Association and others, both verbally and in writing, and he no doubt  took the usual steps to have the proper  parties notified; but no results have  been obtained and no fish ladder built,  and the consequence is that the fish in  Kettle river above the said dam have,  year by year, depleted until at the present time they are almost extinct.  Your petitioners therefore pray that  the necessary steps be taken to compel  the proper parties to put in a fish ladder at once, in the above mentioned  dam at Cascade, in accordance with  notice previously received.
