SOME RESOURCES  OF GREENWOOD  Gold, Silver, Copper and Coal Mines.���  Fruit Farms, Cattle Ranches, Logging Camps, Railways, Stages,  Good Roads, Live and Energetic Business Men.  That Greenwood is still striving and  struggling for a prominent place in  the growing list of interior towns, in  British Columbia, is a good sign. She  will get there, for we never give up,  and the present prospect pleases, and  only the want of men is vile. The  future looms large for the success of  her mining industry, for her fertile  valleys to become great producers,  for the general prosperity of her business men, and there are those left in  this district, who, by their patient tenacity have maintained the local prestige, and will, by working together,  build up a thriving business circle in  the Boundary, with Greenwood for  its hub.  Smelters.  There are two big smelter companies, one operating, and one about to  operate whose product, blister copper,  is the prime source of revenue to this  district.  The British Columbia Copper company has a smelter in town, and mines  in several of the surrounding hills,  and employs about 400 men all told.  The smelter was first built ten years  ago, but since then the works have  been greatly enlarged and brought up  to date. In fact, the Greenwood  smelter today is as complete and modern a plant as exists on the continent.  The capacity of the three furnaces at  present in use is to be augmented by  enlarging, and additional furnaces are  a feature of the further development  of this smelting company's  program.  The Dominion Copper company  smelter at Boundary Falls has been  unfortunately idle for the past few  months, but now that the entire property of the company has changed  hands, including its mines and smelter,  and in the change of ownership these  valuable assets now belong to an active, energetic mining and smelting  corporation, with H. Cook and J. H.  Susmann on the directorate, a new  progressive policy of operation is to  be looked for, which will increase  the number of men employed in and  around Greenwood, and add to its  already noticable  growing prosperity.  INCREASED  EFFICIENCY  i  1036  Mines.  The most important mine in this  district is undoubtedly the Mother  Lode, situated two miles west of town,  in Deadwood camp. This is favorably placed for convenient and advantageous working, and ships close  to two thousand .tons of copper ore  daily to the Greenwood smelter. The  Mother Lode is a town of itself, vvith  a population of 250 people, and has  a well equipped store and postoffice,  a spacious boarding house, adec'iiate  lodging houses for the single men,  some thirty neat cottages for the married men and their families, a large  change room for the men, and an  emergency hospital in case of accidents. The mother lode is the principal employer of labor in the Greenwood mining Division.  Besides the Mother Lode, the British Columbia Copper company own  and operate the Denoro, Emma ami  B. C. mines in Summit camp, the  Lone Star and Washington mine in  Central camp, the Jackpot group of  mines in Wellington camp, the Napoleon mine at Boyd's, Washington,  and several other minor properties  whose ores are shipped to and treated  at their smelter in this town.  The Sunset mine, which is the  property of the property of the New  Dominion Copper company, is situated in Deadwood camp, adjoining  -' e M 'ier Lode mine on the east,  and has been extensively worked by  each succeeding owner of the Boundary Falls smelter. This mine, with  the Brooklyn, Idaho and   Rawhide at  Phoenix, forms the chief source of  ore supply for the company's reduction works, and has been a great employer of labor in the past; and with  the rejuvenation of the Boundary  Falls smelter as a going concern, these  mines, with several smaller ones in  the neighborhood, which belong to  the New Dominion, will ship their  quota daily, and be the means of materially increasing the yearly tonnage  of ores treated in and near Greenwood, and add materially to the  monthly payroll of this town.  Of the smaller mining companies  there i.s no end. The Providence  mine, situated at the north end of  town, is developed to the 400-foot  level, and is only awaiting the advent  cif the principal officers of the company to resume its profitable mining  and development. This mine has  been the largest shipper of high grade  gold and silver ore, has paid most  handsome profits, and can be relied  upon to employ a number of men in  the near future. Mr. Madden, of  Chicago, who is daily expected, is the  prime mover, and his early arrival  here will mark a new tide in the  affairs of this rich gold-silver pro"  ducer.  The Elkhorn mine, adjoining the  Providence to the west, has produced  some S75,000 in silver and gold values. Those who have the company's  affairs in hand are confident that, with  the expenditure of a small amount of  capital, the near neighbor of the Providence will be shipping its rich ores  again this year. Negotiations are  pending "and an early resumption of  work is expected.  On the road to Phoenix, four miles  to the east, of Greenwood, is one continuous string of high grade mines, of  which the Crescent is possibly the  best known. This mine in the past  was worked by the owner, Colonel  Dickason, of Chicago, 'and is now  being operated by two of Greenwood's enterprising citizens, under  lease and bond. They are sinking  and stoping on the hundred foot level,  and are sacking a quantity of ore running well in gold, silver and copper  values, which will be shipped to the  smelter for treatment. The lessees  are setting an example in economic  mining to the owners of the many  similar mining properties to the east  of town, which is the best advertisement the high grade mines close to  town can have, and which will undoubtedly be followed by the Last  Chance, Prince Henry, Defiance and  others.  Considerable development has been  done by a local syndicate on the Diamond Texas, to the north of the  Providence mine, and although this  syndicate have had no great number  of men employed, they have exploited  their property to a depth of 185 feet.  This claim is the extension of the  Providence vein.  On the hills to tbe southeast of the  town are the Bay, Tip Top, Trilby,  Dynamo, Starve Out and other mines  which are being developed by local  men and vvith local money, and which  have ore bodies of excellent promise  and good values. The E. P. U.,  close to town, is in the midst of this  aggregation of high grade claims.  The Tip Top is the oldest location  on this hill and is shipping copper ore  to the Greenwood smelter. The Bay  vein, being worked by Mr. Fuller and  his associates, is noted for its free gold  ore. The Dynamo is operated by  the Portman Brothers, formerly proprietors of the Greenwood brewery,  and will make their fortunes when the  Argo tunnel has reached a sufficient  distance in the heart of the Skylark  hills. These mines employ but few  men at present, but are slowly but  surely increasing their forces and are  a steady source of employment to men  living here.  This article continued next week.  The following extract from  "Principles of Mining*," by Herbert C. Hoover, just published, so  well describes the position of employer and employed that we take  pleasure in quoting it.  Labor unions usually pass through  two phase*. First, the inertia of the  unorganized labor ia too often stirred  only by demagogic mean*. After or-  gdni***a��ion through these and other  agencies, the lack of balance in the  leaden often make for injustice in demands, and for violence to obtain them  and disregard of agreements entjred  upon. As times goes ou, men become  educated iu regard to the rights of  their employers, and to the reflection  of these rights in ultimate benefit to  laboritself. Then the men, as well as  the intelligent employer, endeavors to  safeguard both interests. When this  stage arrives, violence disappears in  favor of negotation on economic principles, and the unions achieve their  real gains. Given a union with leaders  who can control the members.and who  are disposed to approach differences in  a business spirit, there are sounder  positions for the employer, for agreements honorably carried out dismiss  the constant harassment* of possible  strikes. Such unions exist in dozens of  trades in this country, and they are entitled to greater recognition. The time  when the employer could ride rough  shod over his labor is disappearing  with the doctrine of "laissez faire",  on which it was founded. Thu sooner  thefacfis recognized, the batter for  tne employer. The sooner some miners' unions develop from the first'into  the second stage, the more speedily  will their organisation secure general  respect aud influence.  The crying need of labor unions,  and of some employers as well, is edu-  ucation on a fundamental of economics  too long disregarded by all classes aud  especially by the academic economist.  When the later abandons the theory  that wages are the result of supply aad  demand, and recognize that in these  days of international flow of labor,  commodies and capital, the real con-  trailing factor in wages is efficiency,  then such an educational campaign  may become possible. Then will the  employer and employee find a common  ground on whioh each can benefit.  There lives no engineer wbo has not  seen insensate dlipate as to wages  where the real difficulty >wu inefficiency. No administrator begrudges  a division with his men of the increased profit arising from increased efficiency. But every administrator begrudges the wage level demanded by  labor unions whose policy is decreased  efficiency in the false belief that they  are providing for more labor.  E PLURIBUS  HUM MINE  Within two hundred yards of  the Times office is tbe E Pluribus  Unuin mine, operated by Mayor  Bunting and his associates, form-  RE MIDWAY ,  VERNON RY  The following letter from Mr.  John Oliver, M. P. P., has heen  received by Mayor Bunting, and  should be of interest to all    those  ing a local syndicate, who have ' who hold accounts against, the  heen working quietly, system- lirst extempore builders nf tho  atically and continuously tor   the | Midway Vernon, railway.    It, wi.l  TEN YEARS AGO  past three vears.  They have bored the hill for a  distance of 1200 feet, and are now  340 feet below the collar of the  old shaft, and the indications are  that they will strike the vein of  rich gold ore almost any day.  The E. P. U. was located by  Thos Kearns is May 1898, on a  quartz vein carrying high values  in gold and silver, and in Novem  ber of that year Charles Pittock,  of the Gem Resturant, took a  bond on the property for a goodly  figure. He sank on the vein to  the 100-foot level, stoping and  shipping a large quantity of high  grade ore to the Trail smelter,  which netted $(>(> per ton to the  fortunate owners. Tn 1904, W.  T. Hunter, of the local branch  of the Hunter Kendrick company,  bought the E. P. U. the E. P. U.  fraction and the Lancaster fraction, and after considerable further development had been done  Mayor Bunting organized a syndicate of local men who secured  the property in 1906.  The tunnel on the E. P. U. is  the longest iu the Boundary, and  will give depth and a fine gravity  system for the handling of the  out put. Wm. Lawson and T.  Thompson are working there at  present, only hand labor being employed, the former having worked in the tunnel since the Bunting syndicate secured the property. Much water has been encountered which indicates a near  approach to the vein. Much local  interest is taken in the werk of  this enterprising syndicate, and  everyone will be glad to hear of  their persevering efforts meeting  with a large reward. About 75  per cent of the values in the E.  P. U. ore are in gold. The syndicate is out debt and has mouey  in the treasury, and is in every  way in a most healthy condition,  and well deserving of local support, and it is source of gride to  the town.  MIDWAY NOTES  be remembered that some ton  miles of grading was more or less  completed, between Midway and  Rock Creek, and lhat the wages  of the men and thi' bills I'rr supplies were allowed to remain unpaid to this day.  Mayor Bunting, ''reeii wood, ll. (J.:  Sir---Reverting to our conversation  on the loth inst., in respect to moneys  owing to workmen, who have been employed upon construction work on tne  Midway Vernon railway, it is ;jnite  clear from the reading of tin: Midway  and Vernon Subsidy Act thnt if the  railway company failed to pay its workmen, the Government would be entitled to retain a sufficient amount of tlie  subsidy to secure ihe pavmeut o;" the  workmen's wages. This provision  would be binding upon the company,  its   contractors, : uecessort- or assigns.  Aa to the moneys owing- by the coin  pany or its contra Mors for supplies, the  provisions of the Subsidy Ac* does uot  make this a charge*-.ig linstthe subsidy,  nor do they empower the Government  to retain any part of the subsidy.-jor  the purpose of meeting these uUlii^-jt**  ions.  In view of the cireuinstances surrounding the construction of this road,  and of the fact that theie is reason to  believe that the disabilities of the  company were to some extent can ,td  by the action of the Government iu  casting doubts upon the riyhts of the  company to receive the subsidy, I  think it would be well for the government to consider the advisability of so  amending the Subsidy Act, that not  onlv the wages of the workmen, but  that all moneys owing to the citizens  of British Columbia, for supplies furnished in connection with the cous-  struction of the road, should be a charge  against any Provincial Subsidy which  the company would be entitled to receive. I would favor such an amendment.    I am yours truly,  John Oi.ivi***..  Haying is over.  School starts on Monday.  Local apples are on the market.  A night shift has been put on  at the Bruce mine.

"He bas gone beyond  excuse or forglveuess. He is aa dead  to me as though 1 had never known  him, though tbe word you spoke an  hoar ago made me his wife. I shall  have tbat to remember nil my life���  that and the one moment I had waited for so long, for my flrst sight of his  face and my bride's kiss! 1 must carry  lt with me always. I can never wipe  that face from my brain or tbe sting  of that kiss from my lips���the kiss of  a forger, of my husband!"  The old man groaned.' "1 didn't  know he had seen her!" he said helplessly. "Jessica, Hugh's sin is not Sanderson's fault!"  In her bitter words was an Injustice  ms passionate as ber pain, but for ber  life she could not help It   She was a  ; woman  wrenched  and torn,   tortured  toeyond control, numb with-anguish.  Xo Harry Sanderson her words fell  with a wholly disproportionate violence. It bad never occurred to him  that he himself bad been Individually  and actively the cause of Hugh's  downfall. Tbe accusation pierced  through tbe armor of self esteem that  he bad linked and riveted witb habit  The same pain  of mind tbat bad  ���spurred him on  tbat long ago  night to tbe admission she bad  beard had started to new life a  bared, a scathed, a rekindling  Bin.

She  stood an instant quivering, then turned und, feeling blindly for the door,  swept from their sight  White and breathless, Jessica cUmb-  ed the stair. In her room she took a  key from a drawer and rau swiftly  to the attic studio. She unlocked the  door with hurried fingers, tore the  wrappings from the tall white figure  of the prodigal son and found a  heavy mallet She lifted this witb all  her strength and showered blow upon  blow on the hard clay, her face and  hair and shimmering train powdered  with'the white' dust, till the statue lay  <m the floor, a heap of tumbled fragment'".  a       *****        *  Fateful and passionate as the scene  In the library had been, her going left  "a pall of silence in the room. Harry  Sanderson looked at David Stires with  pale intentness.  "Yet I would have given my life,"  he said in a low voice, "to save her  this!"  Something In tbe tone caught the old  man.   He glanced up.  "I never guessed," he said slowly���  **I never guessed that you loved her  too."  But Harry had not heard. He did  not even know that he had spoken  aloud.  David Stires turned his wheel chair  to the Korean desk, touching the bell  as he did so. He took up the draft  and put it Into bis pocket. He pressed  a spring; a panel dropped and disclosed  a hidden drawer, from which he took  a crackling parchment. It was tbe  will against whose signing Harry had  pleaded months before in that same  room.   The butler entered.  "Witness-my signature, Blake," he  said and wrote his name on the last  page. "Mr. Sanderson will sign witb  yon."  *******  An hour later the fast express that  bore Jessica and David Stires was  shrieking across the long skeleton railroad bridge, a dotted trail of Are  against the deepening night. -  "AERY SANDERSON as  he walked slowly back  from a long ramble in  knickerbockers and Norfolk jacket over the hills  was not thinking of the  eights and sounds of the pleasant evening. He had tramped miles since sundown and had returned as he set out,  gloomy, unrequited, a follower of baffled quest  Set back from the street in a wide  estate of trees and shrubbery stood a  great white porcbed house. Not a  light had twinkled from it for nearly a  year. The little city had wondered at  first, then by degrees had grown indifferent The secret of that prolonged  honeymoon Harry Sanderson and the  bishop alone could have told, for the  bishop knew of Hugh's criminal act.  He was named executor of the will  that lay In tho Korean cheatj and him  David Stires had written the truth.  His heart had gone out with pity for  Jessica, and understanding. The secret  he locked ln his own breast, as did  Harry Sanderson, each thinking tlie  other ignorant of it  Since that wedding day no shred of  news bad come to either. Harry had  -wfcjbed for none. To think of Jessica  '���ynu a recurrent pane, and j*et tiie tery  combination of the safe In his study  Ue bad formed of the letters of her  name! In each memory of her be felt  the fresh assault of a new and tireless  H>e���the love which he must deny.  Outcast and criminal as Hugh was,  castaway, who had stolen a bank's  money and a woman's love, be was  still her husband. Hugh's wife! What  could she be to hi in'/ Aud this Covered  conflict shot through with yet another  pang, for the waking smart of compunction which had risen at Jessica's  bitter cry, "You helped to make him  what he bas become!" would not down.  That cry had showu hiin in one clarifying instant tbe follies and delinquencies  of his early career reduplicated as  through the facets of a crystal, aud in  the polarized light of conscience Hugh  ���loafer, gambler aud thief���stood as  the type and sign of an enduriug accusation.  Tut if the recollection of that wedding day and its aftermath stalked always with him���if that kiss had seemed  to cling again and again toliis lips as  he sat in the quiet of his study���no one  guessed. He seldom played bis violin  now, but he had showu no outward  sign. As time went on he had become  no less brilliant, though more inscrutable; not less popular, save perhaps to  the parish heresy hunter, for whom he  had never cared a straw. But beneath  the surface a great change had come to  Harry Sanderson.  Tdnigtit as he wended his way past  the house in the aspens, through the  clatter and commotion of the evening,  there .was a kind of glaze over his  whole face���a shell of melancholy.  Tomorrow be-jan Harry's summer  vacation, and he bud planned a  month's pedestrian outing through the  wide ranch valleys and the farther  ranges, and this should set him up  again.  Now, however, as he walked along  he was bitterly absorbed in thoughts  other than his own needs. He passed  more than one acquaintance witb a  stare of nonrecognitlon. One of these  was the bishop, who turned an instant:  to look after him. Tbe bishop had seen  that look frequently of late and bad  wondered if it betokened physical illness or -mental unquiet More than  once be had remembered, with a sigh,  the old whisper of Harry Sanderson's  early wildness. But he knew youth  and its lapses, and he liked and respected him. Only two days before,  on the second anniversary of Harry's  ordination, he had given bim for his  silken watch guard a little gold cross  engraved with his name and containing the date.  At a crossing the sight of a knot of  people on the opposite side of the  street awoke Harry from bis abstraction. They had gathered around a peripatetic street preacher, who was holding forth in a shrill voice. Beside hiui  on a short pole hung a dripping gasoline flare, and the hissing flame lit his  bare head, bis thin features, his loug  hair and his bony hands moving ln  vehement gestures. A small melodeon  on four wheels stood beside him, and  on its front was painted in glaring  white letters:  ominous growl as Harry fumbled for  the electric switch. As be found and  pressed lt and the place flooded with  light, be saw a figure there, the figure  of a man who had been sitting alone,  beside the empty hearth, who rose,  shrinking back from tbe sudden brilliancy.  It was Hugh Stires.  Chapter 8  HALLELUJAH   JONES.  Suffer me that 1 may speak, and  after that I have Bpoken mock on.  ���Job x-d. 3.  From over the way Harry gazed at  the tall, stooping flgure pitilessly betrayed by the lliLn alpaca coat, at the  ascetic face burned a brick red from  "IVoe to tliem that are at ease in Zlon.''  exposure to wind and sun, at tbe flash  ing eyes, the impassioned earnestness  He paused at the curb and listened  curiously, for Hallelujah Jones with  his evangelism mingled a spice of the  zeal of the socialist In bis thinking  the rich and the wicked were mingled  Inextricably in the great chastisement.  He was preaching now from his favorite text: "Woe to them that are at  ease in Zlon."  Harry smiled grimly. He had always been "at ease in Zion." He wore  sumptuous clothes. The ruby in bis  ring wonld bring what this plodding  exhorter would call a fortune. At this  moment Hede, his dapper Finn chauffeur, was polishing the motor car for  him to take" his cool evening spin. That  very afternoon he had put into the  little safe in the cbapel study $2,000  ln goid which he had drawn, a part for  his charities and quarterly payments  and a part to take with him for the  exigencies of his trip. The street evangelist over there preaching paradise  and perdition to the grinning yokels  often needed a square meal and was  lucky If he always knew where he  would sleep.  The thread of his thought broke  The bareheaded flgure had ended his  harangue. The eternal fires were banked for a time, while, seated on a camp  stool at his melodeon. he proceeded to  transport his audience to the heavenly  meads of the New Jerusalem.  Two, three versos of an old fashioned  hymn he sang, and after each verse  more of the bystanders, some In real  earnestness, some in impious hilarity,  shouted in the chorus:  "Palms of victory!  Crowns of glory!  Palms of victory I shall wear!"  Harry walked on in a brown study,  the refrain ringing through his brain.  At the chapel gate lounged bis chauffeur awaiting orders.  "Bring the car round, Hede,** said  Harry, "and I sbn'n't need you after  that tonight. I'll drive her myaell  Vou can meet me at the garage."  The study was pitch dark, and Rsm-  mv halted on the threshold wltim low.

ARRY SANDERSON  stared at the appari-  i�� tion with a strange  feeling, like rising from  the dead. The arlsto-  '^6S cratic features were  ravaged like a nicked blade. Dissipation, exposure, shame and unbridled  passion hud each set Its separate seal  upou the handsome countenance.  Hugh's clothes were shabby genteel  and tbe old sjinking grace of wearing  them was gone. A thin beard covered  his chin, and bis shifty look, as he  turned it tlrst on Harry and then nervously over his shoulder, had in It a  bunted dread, a dogging terror,. constant and indefinable. From bad to  worse had been a swift descent for  Hugh Stires.  The wave of feeling ebbed. Harry  drew the window curtains, swung a  shade before tbe light and motioned to  the chair.  "Sit down," he said.  Hugb looked his old friend in the  face a moment; then his unsteady  glance fell to the white carnation in  his lapel as he said, "I suppose you  wonder why I have come here,"  Harry did not answer the Implied  question.   His scrutiny was deliberate,  ,-k critical   and   in-  ���j-j quiriug.   "What  f.sj' have  you   been  HN     doing   the   last  \\,-     year?" he asked-  \I "A little of ev-  ������-    ' erything,"   re  plied Hugh. "I  ran a bucket-  shop with Mo-  reau in Sacra-  m e u t o for  awhile. Then I  went over in the  mining country.  I took up a  claim at Smoky  Mountain.  That's worth  something or.  may be sometime."  "Why did you  "Why did you leave   leave it?"  itf" Hugh touched  his parched lips with his tongue. Again  that nervous, sidelong look, that fearful glance over his shoulder.  "I had no money to work it I had  to live. Besides. I'm tired of the whole  thing."  The backward glance, the look of  dread, were tangible tokens. Harry  translated them.  "You are not telling the truth,"  he  said shortly.   "What have you done?"  Hugh flinched, but he made sullen  answer:   "Nothing.     What   should   I  have done?"  "That is what I am now Inquiring  of myself," said Harry. "Your face is  a book for any one to read.

"I don't care to be seen in town," he  said. "You wouldn't either, probably,  under the circumstances." His gaze  dropped to his frayed coat sleeve. In  his craven fear of something that he  dared not name even to himself and  in his wretched need he remembered  a night once before when he had sidled  into town drunken and soiled to a luxurious room, a refreshing bath, clean  linen and a welcome.  "You're the only one in the world I  dared come to." he said 'miserably.  "I've walked ten miles today, for I  haven't a red cent in my pocket, nor  even decent clothes," he ended.  "That can be partly remedied," said  Harry after a pause. He took a dark  coat from its hook and tossed it to  him. "Put that on," he said. "You  needn't return it."  Hugh caught the garment In another moment he had exchanged it for  the one he wore and was emptying the  old coat's pockets,'  "Don't sneak!" said Harry with sudden contempt "Don't you suppose I  know a deck of cards when I see it?"  The thin scar on Hugh's brow reddened. He thrust Into his pocket the  pasteboards he had made an Instinctive move to conceal and buttoned the  coat around him. It fitted sufficiently.  "Look here, Harry," In- 'iftfan. "you  were a good  fellow  in old days.  I'm sorry I never paid yuu (lie money  I borrowed. I would have but for���  what happened. But you won't go  back on me now, will you? I want to  get out of the country and begin over  again somewhere. Will you loan me  the money to do lt?"  Hugh was eager and voluble now.  The man to whom he appealed was his  forlorn hope. He had come witb no  intention of throwing himself upon his  father's mercy. He had wished to see  anybody in the world but him.  "If yon will, I'll never forget it Harry!" he cried. "Never," the longest  day I live! I'll use every dollar of it  just as I say!   1 will, on my bonor!"  "Honorl" he said. "Have you enough  to swear by? Yon are what you are  because you are a bad ess.   You went  (Continued next week.)

The wood  originally was a pine forest,  which the earth swallowed in  some cataclysm, Some of the  trees are a yard in diameter.  They lie in a slanting direction  and in sandy soils, which cover  them to a depth of about eight  yards. As the top branches are  well preserved, it is thought the  geological convulsion which bur-  ed them cannot be of very great  antiquity. The wood furnished  by these timber mines is imperishable, and the Chinese, gladly buy  it for coffins.  The Athabasca mine, near Nelson, has resumed operations and  will employ 25 men. A. W. Con-  stans, one of the new owners,  will be manager of the mine and  mill. The Athabasca, which is  situated on Toad mountain, in  view of the city, is oue of the  oltli'&t properties of the district,  having been located in the early  nineties, one of the original owners being George Neelands, of  Nelson. Mr. Neelands and his  associates sold out to the Athabasca Gold Mines, T,td., a company in which ftnglis h capital  was largely interested. An up-  to-date plant was installed and  gold to the value of #-100,000 .ind  $500,000 recovered.  In the most magnificent pageant ever seen in the West, 25.-  000 Masons from all parts of the  Pacific coast, will parade the  grounds of the Alaska-Yukou-  Facific exposition on Shriners'  day, Wednesday, August 25th.  Over a half million dollars worth  oi costumes alone will be used in  the procession. Camels, elephants, and a whole menagerie of  animals of various kinds will be  used in the parade. At night a  burlesque parade will be held on  the Pay Streak, in which lire  effects will play a prominent pari.  Belgium is rich in stone and  marble.
