The Boundary Mining- and Exploration company have sold a  tract of land from the northwest  corner of lot 422, comprising  about ten acres, to the owners of  tbe Ingraham Creek timber limits. It is understood that the  consideration was $100 per acre.  It is ttfe intention of the purchasers to erect a mill immediately  on this site, and it is planned to  have the mill in operation by the  coming summer.  A. G. Lambert and company,  of Nelson, are said to be interested in the deal, being associated with some Ontario mill men.  They hold an extensive body 6f  excellent timber on Ingraham  creek aud logging operations are  expected to begin at an early  date.  It is clear that Midway is destined to be a place of importance,  and everythipg, even the McBride  railway policy, is helping tp that  end. The Ford fruit laud project  is being'pushed to a successful  issue, the coal developments are  daily growing in importance, and  the new mill will be another  factor in the g-eneral scheme which  the kindly fates are planning for  our neighbor to the south.

Ladies Guild  Bazaar entertainment was an excellent exhibit of local talent.  The charming-costumes and sweet  faces of the ten Geisha girls were  especially pleasing, and their drill  and singing charming. Mrs. F.  Cummins gave a recitation for the  children. Mrs. Oliver, Greenwood's favorite singer, gave much  pleasure to the largo audience. A  short play entitled " Dumb-Bell,"  by W. W. Jacobs, was splendidly  given with much success.

More than one thousand persons have been imprisoned in  Nicaragua recently. , Tbis number includes congressmen, military commanders and other prom,  inenf men.  It has been officially announced  that Messrs.

One Sundav morning  Mark was visiting a very wealthy  cotton broker, who, above all  things, boasted about his traveling bath tub.  "It runs," he explained, "by  electricity, on tiuy pneumatic  tires, Bmooth and silent. Whenever I don't feel disposed to leave  this room, it comes in here to me j  filled, just as I like it, with genuine sea water. All I have to do  is to push the button."  " Push it now,"' said Mark,  curiously.  The button was pushed, the  doors slid magically open, and  the grea-i onyx bath glided in  stately silence into the room.  And in it sat the millionaire's astonished little girl.  You don't have to go to war to  be patriotic. Improve your locality, uphold your town, enlarge  its interests, and lend a hand to  progress, and you are a patriot���  a lover of your country���as truly  as the soldier who shoulders his  musket,  A woman went .into a newspaper office and wished to advertise  for her husband, who had disappeared. When told that they  charged two dollars an inch she  went out, saying it would break  her up at that rate, as her hu ���-  band was over six feet long.  We Give Away  Absolutely Free of Cost  Preparations are being made  for 400 marines to sail from Philadelphia, either for the canal  zone or for Nicaragua uext Saturday.

THE HOME JOURNAL  COSTLY SOUVENIRS  In spite of the fact that the St.  Jude's Guild Baz-iar, which was  held in the Auditorium last Friday, took place the day after election dav, when everyone was tired  to death after the strenuous times  <>f the previous few weeks, the  Bazaar was a most pronounced  success, socially, financially and  in every other way. The proceeds were in the neighborhood  of $300. The ladies were untiring 111 their efforts and the  patrons <��f tlie Bazaar, afternoon  and evening, generous in their  purchases. Everyone concerned  is to be congratulated. It speaks  well for a small community such  as Greenwood that the worthy  object met with such substantial  recognition. Especially is the  management nf ihis onerous undertaking to be congratulated on  the success of the Bazaar.  XMAS SHOPPING  Christmas is near at hand. The  one time of the >ear when yottng  and old vie with each other in  cementing old ties of friendship  and comradeship. When the  many kindnesses shown through-  Perhaps you don't s-*t any particular value on your old clothes,  your old books, your old love letters, but in after years when you  become famous, when vour name  is on everyone's lips, then your  friends, if you still have any,  your relatives, and you can't  shake them off, famous or infamous, your descendants, will all  reap a rich harvest from your  present humble personal  effects.  So. beware what you write, and  burn your old clothes���destroy  your books, unless you want your  people to make their fortunes  when you have become a world  renowned man or woman. Take  Thackeray's case. When he was  at school, like almost every boy  he ornamented his Latin dictionary,his Euclid and his Horatius (*  with little ink sketches. You  could pick up such books on anv  stall for 3d, but because thev belonged to the great author tbev  realized, not long ago, uot less  than $200. There are many such  instances.

I know  that the Ladies' Home Journal has a  wide circulation in Canada. It ia a  fine production,though tome, tiresome  in its bulk, and in man y of its features.  The Home Journal covers quite as  mauy topics in less space. It is  keener, less prosy and very well writ  ten. The covers are an artistic delight  and are equal to those of the Saturday  Evening- Post, which is fine praise.  Jeane Graham, the editor, is one of the  finest woman journalists in all Canada,  a woman whose writings have been  appreciated in the New York press time  and time again, whose work is known  and appraised in the Southern States,  and to whom the New York Sun  has more than once referred in a very  complimentary manner.

It caused the  child great pain and made it very  -restless and ill. The rash spread very  quickly, and I was at a loss what to  do next, for all the remedies I tried failed to  give the little one ease. A friend strongly advised me to  try Zam-Buk, and I did. That proved good and gave the  baby ease very quickly. I went on with the treatment,  and by the time the third box was used, all traces ofthe  rash had gone."  So says Mra J.

The specta-  ' i>rs scattered in all directions, and a  '-.ream of water from a well directed  i le deluged'the Itinerant and his mn-  box.  fen minutes later the street preacher,  died  and   furious,   was  trundling  \uelodeon toward Funeral Hollow,  * way to the coast.  fe���~���^S  Hurry stood agaiii In the  *^^.      obscure half darkness of  .<  /   M    Ills c-i-Il  it came to .him  v Jz^^^L, tliiit   the   present   had  a  H:   fe ftirrcacliiiTg   significance;  J[ that it was but the handi  work and resultant of forces In his  own past. He himself had set Hugh's  feet on the red path that had pointed  him to the shameful terminus. He had  gambled for Hugh's future, forgetting  that his past remained, a thing that  must be covered. He had. won Hugh's  counters, but his own right to be himself he had staked and lost long before  that game on the communion table under the painted crucifixion.  "The -words he had once said to Hugh  recurred to him with a kind of awe:  "Put myself in your place? I wish to  God I could!"  Fate���or was it God?���bad*taken him  at his word. He had been hurled like  a stone from a catapult into Hugh's  place���to bear iiis knavery, to suffer hia  dishonor and to redeem the baleful reputation lie had made.  A step outside the cell, the turning  of the key. The door opened, and  Jessica, pale and trembling, stood on  the threshold.  "I cannot help It," she said as she  came toward him, "though you told  me not to come. I have trusted all the  while aud waited and���and prayed.  But today I was afraid. Surely, surely, the man you are protecting has had  time enough. Hasn't he? Won't'you  tell them the truth now?"  He knew uot how to meet the piteous  reproach and terror of that look. She  had not heard the street preacher's  declaration, he knew, but even if she  had it would have been to her only  an echo of the old mooted likeness. He  had given her comfort once, but this  was uo more to be, no matter what lt  meant to him or to her.  "Jessica," he said steadily, "when  you came to me here that first .day  and 1 told you not to fear for me 1 did  not mean to deceive you. I thought  then that It would all come right But  something has happened since then-  something that makes a- difference. I  cannot tell who was the murderer of  Moreau. I cannot tell you or any one  else, either now or at any time."  1 She gazed at him startled. She had  a sudden conception of some element  hitherto ungtiessed In his makeup-  something inveterate and adamant  Could it Be that he did not intend to  tell at all? The very Idea was monstrous. Yet that clearly was his meaning. She looked at him with flashing  eyes.  "You mean you will not!" she exclaimed bitterly. "You are bent on  sacrificing yourself, then? You are going to take this risk because you think  it brave and noble, because somehow  it fits your man's gospel. Can't- you  see how wicked and selfish it is? You  are thinking only of him and of yourself, not of me."  "Jessica, Jessica!" he protested, with  a groan. But in the self torture of her  questionings she paid no heed.  '���Don't you think I suffer? Haven't I  borne enough in the 'months since I  married you for you to want to save  me this? Do you owe me nothing, me  ���whom you so wronged, whose"���  She stopped suddenly at the look on  his face of mortal pain, for she had  struck harder than she knew, it pierced through the fierce resentment to her  deepest heart, and all her love and pity  gushed back upon her in a torrent  She threw herself on her knees by the  bare cot crying passionately:  "Oh. forgive me! Forget what I said!  I did not mean It I have forgiven you  a thousand times over. I never ceased  to love you. I love you now more than  all the world."  "It ls true," he said, hoarse misery in  his tone. "I have wronged you. If I  could coin my blood drop by drop to  pay for the^past 1 could not set that  right. If giving my life over and over  again would save you pain 1 would  give it gladly. But what you ask now  is one thing I cannot do. It would  make me a pitiful coward. I did not  kill Moreau. That is all I can say to  you or to those who try me."  "Tour life!" she said with dry lips.  "It will mean that That counts so  fearfully much to ��� me, more than my  own life a hundred times. Yet there is  something that counts more than all  that to you."  His face was that of a man who  holds his hand in the Are. "Jessica,"  he said, "it is like this with me. When  you found me here���the day I saw you  on the balcony���I was a mar* whose  * soul had lost its compass and its bearings. My conscience was asleep. Yon  ���woke it and it is fiercely alive now.  And uow with my memory has come  back a debt of my past that I D-aver  paid. Whatever the outcome, for my  soul's sake I must settle lt now and  wipe it from the score forever."  She rose slowly to her feet, with a  a hard voloe; " 'himself he could not  save!' I once heard a minister preach  from that text at home. It was your  friend, the Rev. Henry Sanderson. I  thought It a very spiritual sermon  then. That was before I knew what  his companionship had been to you."  "If there were any justice iu the universe," she added, "it should be he  Immolating himself uow, uot you. But  for him you would never be hero. He  ruined your life and mine, and I hate  and despise bim for a selfish hypocrite."  That was what he himself had  seemed to her in those old days. The  edge of a flush touched his forehead  as he said slowly, almost appcalingly:  "He was not a hypocrite, Jessica.  Whatever he wus it was uot that. At  college he did what he did too openly.  That was his failing, not caring what  others thought. He despised weakness  in others.- He thought It none of his  affair. So others were influenced. But  after he fame to see thiugs differently  from another standpoint���when he  went iuto the ministry���he would have  given the world to undo it."  , "Men's likings are strange," she said.  "Because he never had temptations  like yours and has never done what  the law calls wrong you thiuk he is as  uoble as you���noble enough to shield  i murderer to his own danger."  "Ah, no, Jessica!" he interposed gently. "I only said that In my place he  would do tho same.."  "But you are shielding a murderer,"  she insisted fiercely. "You will not admit it, but I know. Tliere can be no  justice or right In,that If Harry Sanderson is all you think him. if he  stood here now and knew the whole,  he would say it was wicked���not brave  and noble,'but wicked and cruel."  He shook his head, and the sad  shadow of a bitter smile touched his  lips.  "He would not say so." he said.  "It   Humid  be  lie   immolating  ttim&cli  now. not you."  A dry sob answered him. He turned  and leaned his elbows on the narrow  window sill, every nerve aching, but  powerless to comfort. He heard her  step. The door closed sharply.  Then he faced into the empty cell,  sat down on the cot and threw out his  arms, with a hopeless cry:  "Jessica, Jessica!"  *        ��        *        *        ���*��        ���  Jessica left the jail with despair In  her heart Tbe hope on which she had  fed these past days had failed her.  What was there left for her to do?  Like a swift wind, she' went up the  street to Felder's ottice. She groped  her way up the iinlighted stair aud  tapped on the door. There was no answer. She pushed It open and entered  the empty outer room, where a study  lamp burned on the desk.  A pile of legal lookiug papers had  been set beside it, and with them lay a  torn page of a newspaper whose familiar caption gave her a stab of pain  Perhaps the news of the trial had  found its way across the ranges to  Where the names of Stires and Moreau  had been known. . Perhaps every one  at Aiolston already knew of it. was  reading about it, pitying her. She picked it up and scanned it hastily. There  was no hint of the trial, but her eye  caught the news which had played its  role in the courtroom, nnd she read it  to the end.  Even in her own trouble she read It  with a shiver. Yet awful as the lute  which Harry Sanderson had so narrowly missed, lt was not to be compared with that which awaited Hugh,  for, awful as it was, it held no shame.  In a gust of feeling she slipped to  her knees by the oue sofa the room  contained and prayed passionately. As  she drew out her handkerchief to  stanch the tears that came something  fell with a musical tinkle at her feet.  It was the little cross she had found  ln front of the hillside cabin that had  lain forgotten in her pocket during the  past anxious days. As she pressed It  the ring at the top gave way. and the  cross parted in halves. Words were  engraved on the inside of the arms���a  date and the name Henry Sanderson.  The recurrence of the name jarred  and surprised her. Hugh had dropped  it���an old keepsake of the friend who  had been bis beau ideal, his exemplar  and whose ancient influence was still  dominant. He had clung loyally to the  memento, blind in his constant liking,  to the wrong that friend had done him.  She looked at the date. It was May  2& She shuddered, for that was the  month and day on which Dr. Moreau  had been killed. The point had been  clearly established today by the prosecution. To the original owner of that  cross perhaps the dat-* 'hat had come  into Hugh's life witH such a sinister  meaning was a glad anniversary.  Suddenly she caught her hand to her  cheek. A weird idea had rushed  tfcrasgt^her brain.   The reCsu>nsa*pa-  bol had stood for Harry Sanderson,  and the chance coincidence of date  had irresistibly pointed to the murder.  To her excited senses the Juxtaposition held a bizarre, uncanny suggestion. 'This cross, the very emblem of  vicarious sacrifice! Suppose Harry  Sanderson had never given it to Hugh!  Suppose he bad lost it on the hillside  himself!  She snatched* up the paper again.  "Who has been for some months on a  prolonged vacation"���the phrase stared  sardonically at her. That might carry  far back���she said It under her breath,  fearfully���beyond the murder of Dr.  Moreau. Her face burned, and her  breath came ' sharp and fast Why  when she brought her warning to the  cabin had Hugh been so anxious to get  her away unless to prevent her sight  bf the man who was there, to whom he  had taken her horse? Who was there  In Smoky Mountain whom he would  protect at hazard of his own life?  Jessica's veins were all afire. A rector murderer? A double career? Was  it beyond possibility? It came to her  like an lmpingjng ray of light, the old  curious likeness that had sometimes  been made a jest of at the white  house in the aspens. Moreau and Prendergast had believed It to be Hugh.  So had the town, for the body had  been found on his ground. But on the  night when the real murderer came  again to the cabin perhaps it was his  coming that had brought back the lost  memory. Hugh had known the truth.  In the light of this supposition, his  strained manner then, his present determination not to speak, all stood  plain.  What had he meant by a debt of his  past that he had never paid? He could  owe no debt to Harry Sanderson. If  he owed any debt it was to his dead  father, a thousand times more than the  draft he had repaid Could he be  thinking in his remorse that his father  had cast him off, counting himself  nothing, remembering only that Harry  Sanderson had been David Stires' favorite and St James', which must be  smirched by the odium of Its rector,  the apple of his eye?  Jessica had snatched at a straw, because it was the only buoyant thing  afloat In the dragging tide. Now with  a blind fatuousness she hugged it  tighter to her bosom. One purpose  possessed her���to confront Harry Sanderson. What matter though she  missed the remainder of the trial?  She could do nothing. Her hands were  tied. If the truth lay at Anlston she  would find it She thought no farther  than this. Once In Harry: Sanderson's  presence, what she should say or do  she scarcely imagined. The horrifying question filled her thought to the  exclusion of all that most follow Its  answer. It was surety and self conviction she craved, only to read in bis  .eyes the truth about the murder of  Moreau.  She suddenly began to tremble.  Would the doctors let her see him?  What excuse could she give? If he  was the man who had been in Hugh's  cabin that night he had heard her  speak, had known she was there. He  must not know beforehand of her coming lest he have suspicion of her errand Bishop .Ludlow, he could gain  her access to him. Injured, dying  perhaps, maybe he did not guess that  Hugh was ln jeopardy for his crime.  Guilty and dying, if he knew this, he  would surely tell the truth. But if he,  died before she could reach Mm? The  paper was some days old. He might  be dead already. She took heart, however, from the statement of bis improved condition.  She sprang to her feet and looked at  her chatelaine watch. The eastbound  express was overdue. There was no  time to lose. Minutes might count  She examined her purse. She had  money enough with her.  Five minutes later she was at the  station, a scribbled note was on its  way to Mrs. Halloran, and before a  swinging red lantern the long Incoming train was shuddering to a stop  ����������a*"eBa��->r-**��9att��**������  IMINES AND MINING I  * ��  �� *  *��*����,��������� ����������������v,0����*����ea  The  owners  of   the   Tip   Top  mine have commenced operations  and will work all -winwr.  f  A comfortable cabin, f.-r the  men w'rking- at the Midway  coal mine bas breti eiec'r-d, -unl  a new blacksmith shop completed.

FIFTY  THOUSAND  SHARES  Of the capital stock of this Company are offered for sale at  25 Cents Per Share, $1.00 Par  To provide funds for the development of its coal properties near Midway.  The company owns the coal rights of 2,458 acres of land and has options on  three square miles additional. Work has been done in development continuously since  September 2, and a tunnel is now being driven to cross-cut three seams which show on  the surface. Coal can be delivered from the mouth of this tunnel to the C. P. K.  tracks below by gravity,  Development work done thus far is as follows:  One prospecting tunnel on the surface of the seam, 50 feet in length.  One shaft and drifts, about 45 feet, all in the coal seam.  One shaft and incline, following the proven seam to the depth of 80 feet.  An analysis of the surface coal returns 66 per cent carbon and only 3 per ceut ash.  The Company owns other properties, including fruit lands, mineral claims,  options on mineral claims, mines and timbsr limits. Its coal holdings alone are  considered worth more than its issued capital stock. An investment in this stock at  the present price should be immensely produci ive.

Seattle is to be  the western terminal. This wire  will ultimately give telephone  service to New York, thereby  making it possible to talk from  the Atlantic to the Pacific.  In furtherance of their campaign for suffrage in Washington, the organized women of Seattle are planning to make a  good showing at the coming  school election in December.  Registration is going forward  quietly and they predict a surprising showing when the vote  is counted. At the general election next year, the constiutional  amendment, authorized for submission to the voters, for an ex-  tention of the suffrage to all  women, will be an important  issue and an active fight is to be  made for it hy the Washington  Equal Suffrag-e Association,  which has issued the second number of "Votes, for Women," a  monthly publication.  We are in a receipt of a communication from the office of  C. P. Walker, of Walker Theatre, Winnipeg, stating that his  representative would be here in a  few days to interview a number  of our leading citizens relative to  a production of "As You Like  It" which Manager Walker is  sending through the West. As  this is the most delightful of all  the Shakespearian comedies, and  is to be given by practically an  all-star cast with a most elaborate scenic and costume equipment, it is hoped that arrangements can be concluded for an engagement here. If the opinion  of those interviewed is favorable,  and sufficient interest is shown.  A subscription list will be circulated and it enough patronage  is assured the production will  appear here in the near future.  BIG STRIKE  B. G COPPER  An official of the British Columbia Copper Co., estimates  that the .company's profit for October will be over $40,000 instead  of $38,000 as was repored.
