For some months he had  been absent in New York, Seattle and  the Canadian coast cities on a mission  in connection with the new road, and  his return to Greenwood is looked upon  as an evidence that satisfactory ar  rangetuents for the sale of the Midway  & Vernon charter and the building of  the road have been made. He was ac  companicd with L. M. Rice, formerly  of theC. P. R. engineering staff, and  S. T. Tomlinson, an engineer representing an eastern corporation. These  engineers are now engaged in some  details in connection wilh the deal.  Mr. Smailes refused to slate for publication that the charter had been sold,  but he admitted that he is confideut  the road will be built. He, however,  has promised full details in a short  time.  In his home coming this time Mr.  Smailes wears a differeut air than upon  other, occasions. There is a suggestion  of genial confidence in the future  never evident before, and his spirit of  hope has been caught by all the local  parties interested with him in the railway.'������ which* leads;"to'-the'supposition".  that greater success has attended his  last mission than it is policy to make  public at the present ^time. In his negotiations he has had many difficulties  to contend with, and success has been  attained only by the exercise of extreme patience and the most careful  diplomacy. It has ever been his aim  to protect the interests of his company  as well as those of the public by insisting upon the absolute necessity  that the road would be built at once.  This stipulation has been an essence  in all propositions considered, and the  public may rest assured that when the  sale of the charter is finally announced  actual construction will start in a short  it i at e..,.-   _,.

Successful Entertainment Conducted  by Enterprising Church Ladies*  In spite of the unfavorable condition  of the weather, the ladies of St. Jude's  church held a successful ice cream  social and entertainment on Wednesday afternoon and evening. Those in  charge of the arrangements had worked  hard to make it a success, and they deserve credit for their enterprise. The  h-ill was tastefully decorated with the  flags of many"nations and the flower  and candy tables looked especially fine.  Ice cream, cake, . sandwiches and tea  were served to lhe many guests, and in.  the evening a musical program was  rendered. Among others who contributed were C. A. Thomas, piano  solo; Mrs. Oliver, vocal solo; Miss Bel-  don, violin cello, and A. W. Whiteside,  vocal solo. The band were present and  rendered several selections that were  highly appreciated.  Much enjoyment was added to the  latter part of the evening by the auction sale humorously conducted by  W. F. Kendall. The remaining candies  were disposed of at good prices, and  the sale of flowers brought forth keen  bidding.  Considering the number of people  pie present, the financial results were  remarkable, the proceeds netting one  hundred dollars. Rev. J. Leech Porter  had charge" of the program and conducted it in a manner highly suitable  to the occasion.  THE STOCK MARKET.  London Quotations on Le Roi.-Rambler-Cariboo Advance.  There is much guessing as to the  present position and the prospective  course of Le Roi shares. In consequence of numerous inquiries, C. _}.'  Benn, of'Rossland,, cabled to his London correspondents on Tuesday, asking  for the lowest price at which Le Roi  shares could be bought. He received a  reply quoting ��112s.  Rambler-Cariboo took another sharp  advance this week, the bids advancing  to 37 and 38 cents, while 40 cents is  asked. ���  There is still enquiry for shares in  idle local mines, but ho change in  prices to be noted.  Caribwo-McKinney is taking on some  activity, quite a few enquiries being  made for it around 2% cents. There  are rumors afloat of a resumption of  work at the mine, in which many people suppose there is still a supply of  good ore.  Consolidated and Granby^ are firm  and practically unchanged, few transactions being reported in either,  The latest London papers quote Le  Roi No. 2 at ��2 2)4. and ��2 2%.

The laxative effect of Chamberlain's  Stomach and Liver Tablets is so agreeable and so natural that you can hardiy  realize that it is produced by medicine.  These tablets also cure indigestion.  For sale by all druggists.  J. S. McLean of Rock Creek, visited  town Monday and renewed acquaintances with old friends. He reports  business fairly good in his district, the  railway construction having put a lot  of money in circulation this simmer.  The rails on the V., V. & E. have been  laid as far as McBride's. The track  laying machine is working satisfactorily and an average of a mile a day is  being laid. The contractors are working all the men they can secure and  would employ more if they were available. Mr. McLean thinks the line will  be completed to Keremeos by Christmas.  Mr. McLean came in especially to  see Duncan Ross, M. P., regarding the  possibility of having a post office  opened at his place. He is seven miles  from the Rock Creek post office and he  says the stage which passes to Rock  Creek carries a big bundle of mail for  that post office every time. "There  are a dozen farmers, besides many  prospectors, that such an office would  serve," said* Mr. McLean, "and it  would prove a great convenience. I  would erect a suitable building where  the office could be located and the stage  could carry the mail.  _.... -'We should, also have a. customs  office opened- I am planning to open  a general store and a customs officer  will be necessary to handle the imported goods. When the' railway starts  running we will have to have one anyway, because any goods going from  Rock Creek to Hedley, Keremeos or  other Similkameen towns will have to  be bonded, and someone must be there  to do it."  At present Mr. McLean is carrying a  small line of staple goods in connection with his hotel, but he expects  business will increase sufficient to warrant opening a large general slore. He  buys his goods in Greenwood, so thus  this city is interested in the development of trade there.  CREDITABLE BOOKLET  Percy F. Godenrath, well known  locally, who is now connected with The  Week, published in Victoria, has just  issued "Canada's National Playground," a guide and souvenir of the  mountain resorts of British Columbia.  The booklet contains much interesting  and useful information of Banff aud  vicinity, Bankhead, LakeMinnewanka,  the Bow river, Laggan, Field, Glacier,  Rogers' Pass and The Loops. The  appearance aud the arrangement of the  contents is a decided credit to the editor, Mr. Godenrath, and tothe B. C.  Engraving Co., who made the engravings, and to the job department of that  enterprising journal, the Calgary Herald.   The price is 25 cents.  RICH COPPER DEPOSITS  Mr. P. W. Pennefather of the  mounted police service at \vhitehorse  has returned to the coast. He states  that the copper properties recently  bonded by Byron White of Spokane,  are showing wonderful promise, and  predicts that thev will be the making  of Whitehorse. Some of the surface  showings on the White properties have  run as high as 51 per cent in copper.  Valuable new copper discoveries have  been made within the iast  few  weeks.  LOCATES COPPER DEPOSIT  Mayor Naden is expected home about  October 1st. When last heard from he  was prospecting in the mountains surrounding Bulkley valley, where he had  located a big deposit of copper. Mis,  Naden had intended remaining at the  coast until ho returned, but she has  decided to return to Greenwood sooner  and is expected home about the end of  s we*:k or the beginning of next.

According to a statement made  to the Times Wednesday morning- by Acting- Mayor Bunting*,  the long suffering* residents of  Kimberly avenue south, will have  to put up with the disgraceful  condition ol" the sidewalk aud  street opposite the Presbyterian  church for at least eight or nine  'months longer, and perhaps for  another year. The excuse given  for the delay is lack of funds.  The portion of the street under  discussion is important, and, if it  were in decent shape, would be  much used, for it is the shortest  and most direct way from Church  street to the business center-of  the town. By the residents of  Kimberley from the school house  to Galloway's it must be used  daily to get to. Copper street direct, and it is necessary to tramp  across two streets and the length  of a. block in dust or mud to the  ankles, according- to the condition  or the weather. A short time  ag-o the sidewalk was changed in  order that the roadway might be  opened for traffic. It is open, but  the condition of the roadwaj- is  such that only a liirht rig can be  driven over it, and then at great  risk of ruining the hors.es* feet  in the rubbish strewn about.  Besides those who reside on the  street, there are many who attend both St. Jude's church and  the Presbyterian church, whe  must both use it, and they are  put to equal annoyance and inconvenience, while anyone passing down Long Lake street, and  wishing to go any farther, must  take to the road and brave the  jlust'.and^ibbish ofjhis neglected  "city street."  The street is a disgrace to  Greenwood. It is a disgrace to  the council, aud it is a disgrace  to the citizens directly interested,  that it be tolerated anv lon<--er  than it is necessary to have it repaired.  If the council is not prepared  to grade ihe street and finish the  sidewalk to Government street at  present, let some of the money  that was saved by Earl Grey not  coming to Greenwood, be spent  in putting a temporary crossing  from opposite Galloway's residence to the Presbyterian church,  and some day. perhaps, when the  city gets rich enough, or the provincial government gets generous  enough, a sidewalk will be built  around the court house.  THE BAND AND ITS ENTERPRISE.  With commendable enterprise  the Concert Baud is erecting a  baud stand at tiie head of Copper  street which, when completed,  will be a credit both to the city  and to the organization responsible for its erection. The Concert  Baud is the one organization of  Greenwood that possesses a spirit  of enterprise that is a credit to  the community. Its members are  thoroughly interested in their  work and are willing to make  personal sacrifices  to  better  the  efficiency of the band as a whole.  During the past Tew months a  large sum of money, some $500,  has been expended in a first-class  equipment of silver-plated instruments of the best quality made,  practices are held regularly and  every effort put forth to attain to  greater perfection. It is this continuous striving for improvement  that has made it possible for  Greenwood's baud to attain to a  standard of efficiency superior to  anything in the Boundary aud  equal, probably, to anything- in  the interior, and it should be a  source of pride to local people to  know that it rivals some ol* the  bands of the coast cities.  During the coming mouths the  new stand will not be available,  of course, for entertainments, but  during nexto summer, aud if  Greenwood should ever have a  celebration of any kind, it will  prove a valuable and useful building. ���   Aftkk receiving several thousand dollars in taxes from the  community of Anaconda, the provincial government has doled out  fifty dollars for street repairs.  Such unparallelled generosity  will, no doubt, be commended by  the supporters of the McBride-  Hawthornthwaite administration.  8 DOCTORS AND 17 KINDSo0F MEDICINE FAILED  Bileans Then Cured Her-  Canadians suller more from biliousness, headache, indigestion, constipation ami liver troubles than any other  people. For these ailments Bileans,  the great vegetabl-i remedy, beats all  other known preparations. Bileans  were recently tested in a remarkable  Norfolk case. The subject was Mrs.  James Dixon, of Crostwight. This is  what she 'says: "All rny life I had  suffered from biliousness, lie.idache and  indigestion. 1 frequently had a pain  at my heart and palpitation. A dryness  used to come at my throat at night and  nearly choice me; my husband dared  not smoke in the house, as the smoke  stilled nie.  "Almost every day I was sick, bile  continuously coming up. All I ate  disagreed with me, and I-had very bad  headaches. Eight different doctors  have attended me, and, .''part from  what they gave, I tried seventeen different special medicines. The medicines  brought no relief, and the doctors said  they could do me little good as my  weakness was constitutional. Yet I  am well now, free from pain, at last���  thanks entirely to coming to know  about Bileans. My daughter-persuaded  me to commence taking them, and I  underwent a thorough course 1 im-  "provefiTaTfeT^  gradually but surely they made this  great change in me, and restored me to  perfect health. I am never without  then: in the house now."  If you suffer from headache, indigestion, wind, biliousness, summer-  end fag, debility, blood hnpiuities,  liver complaint, piles or any stomach  or intestinal trouble, you will find a  cure iu Bileans.

'_   THE EDITOR'S SNAP  Every once iu a while some eheeriul  individua' remarks to us, "Well, now  that the paper i.s out, I suppose you can  take il easy for thive or four days."  Yes, how delight! ul il is that a. country  editor has practically nothing to do  between press days. Business runs  along automatically. U'hen paper bills  come due money drops off the trees  with which to pay them. Subscribers  vie with each other lo see who can pay  the farthest in advance Advertisers  beg for a tditional  space, and   the way  the news hunts up the editor is also  pleasant to contemplate. There is  really something strange about the  way news items act. When the paper  is out the editor simply goes to his desk  and leans back in his easy chau and  looks wise and waits for next week's  press day. The day before press day  the people line up in front of the office  door cind then they file past, his desk  and tell him all the news of the week.  He writes il up in fifteen or twenty  ininutes, takes it back and hangs it ou  the hook. The compositors take the  copy, shake it over the type cases, say  a few myslic words, the type fiies into  place, and after a few passes by the  foreman the forms are ready for the  press again. And the edit.r goes down  and deposits some more money in the  bank. It is the greatest snap in the  catalogue. Now, if the editor could  only do away with the press day, his  joy would be complete.���Marion (Kan.)  Record.  B, C.

A little child of Michael Strauss, of  Vernon, Conn., was recently in great  pain from a burn on the hand, und as  cold applications only increased the  inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to Mr.  James N.

Mr.'  Nichols says: "I advised him to use  Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and the first  application drew out the inflammation  aud gave immediate relief.

This column is resumed this week  with a treatise on "Aluminum, Molybdenum and Tungsten." Next week  Antimony and Bismuth, will be discussed.  ALUMINUM.  Aluminum is the most abundant  metal in the world, yet there are very  few minerals which lend themsuives to  its extraction. The most common of  them ate clay, felspar, mica, and kaolin  have not yet been treated on a com  mercial scale.  Bauxite, cryolite and minerals containing aluminum sulphate are the  aluminum ores which are treated at  the present time. Bauxite is a mixture  of aluminum and ferric hydrates and  was first found ii Baux, France. Its  specific jrravity is 2.55, aud its colors  whitish grayish to ocher-yellow, brown  and red. The purest bauxite only is  used for the manufacture of aluminum.  Cryolite is a fluoride of sodium and  aluminum containing-13 percent aluminum. Its crystals are often cubic in  aspect and brittle. Its luster is vitreous to greasy, somewhat pearly. It is  colorless to snow-wliite, sometimes  rsddish or brownish to brick-red or  even black. It is distinguished by its  extreme fusibility.  Aluminum has a tin-white color; its  specific gravity is very low, 2.7. It can  b. made into the thinnest sheets and  wire, like silver. Its melting point is  about 650 degrees c. It contains as  impurities silicon, iron and carbon,  which interfere with its physical characteristics. Aluminum does not oxidize in the air at ordinary temperatures,  . hence its usefulness for kitchen uter^  ails, etc.  The alloy of 90 per cent copper and  10 per cent allumiuum is distinguished  by its great hardness and durability,  aud has a gold-like color and luster.  Under the name of aluminum bronze  it-is used for the composition of various  articles such ;is watches, clocks,  spoons, etc.  The metal I'lumiuum is interesting  owing to the fact that its costs so  much to reduce its ores to metal. The  expense and difficulties of smelting  once overcome, will lead to its use in  many industries. At present the only  way of obtaining it is by treating its  ores at a high temperature iu the electric furnace. '���**���"7*'  MO'.YBD"-"-**-",",.  Irately molybdenum has gained considerable economic importance through  its introduction into the manufacture  of certain kinds of steel In quantities  up to about 4 per cent it has the effect  of rendering steel hard and tough,wilh  the additional advantage that heating  and welding are unattended by any  change in these qualities. At the steel  works it is ordinarily added in one or  other of three forms, viz: Asa dark  blue powdered metal containing 95 to  99 per cent of molybdenum; as feromo  lybdemum, containing 50 to 55 per cent  of molybdeuum; or as molybdenum-  nickel containing 75 per cent of molyb-  " den u:m ."-"-"* *=*=--=-^--;===-^=========: .^^_  Molybdenum is obtained from the  mineral molybdenite. The ore is  heated in a carbon tube with au arc of  350 amperes and 60 volts, increasing it  to 900 amperes and 50 volts, complete  fusion is obtained in a short time, the  sulphur being driven off.  The metal prepared by the above  method is a malleable white metal of  silvery luster, with a specific gravity  of 9.01. It is hard enough to scratch  glass and can be welded, filed and pol-  lahed with ease. It has a high melting  point, but fuses very easily in the  electric furnace.  Molybdenite contains 60 per cent  molybdenum and 40 pt-r cent sulphur  and occurs rather r.-.rely in nature..

If there is one thing  wors- than drunkenness it is gambling,  and more than one young man has  been started on the road to hell by no  less formidable an instrument than the  simple nickcl-in-the-slot machine. The  council has given notice that these devices must go, and as they are backed  up by the laws of Lhe land theii demands will doubtless be complied with.

Draper's dogs, tlie famous canines  which have won a reputation for themselves by their ability to track murderers and other criminals, will give an  exhibition of their wonderful skill the  first afternoon of the Spokane Interstate fair, September 24. This will be  one of the most exciting scenes at this  year's fair. The entire procedure,with  all its exciting incidents, will be illustrated by the dogs, police and an imaginary murderer.  Two men in front of the grandstand  will (>-et into an ar; ument over a race,  will fight, and one will pretend to shoot  and kill the other. The police will rush  out and an ambulance will appearand  carry off tbe dead jnan. while the  murderer.makes bis escape down the  ..tnu'k, but drops his hat in getting  away. Within a few minutes Draper  and his famous bloodhounds are  .brought, to the scene, get a whiff of the  outlaw's hat, and start upon the trail.  These dogs and the man who will do  the deed are practicing daily in Sno-  koue. The dogs are not allowed to run  free, but arc held in leash by Draper.  If they were allowed their freedom  they would tear the man to pieces.  Ky the lime the dogs are brought to  the scene, the man has a good start and  has gone half way round the track,  crossing and recrossiiif, the track of  many, horses and men in his flight.  There is great excitement as the two  hounds, with their awful baying, start  in put-suit. The fleeing murderer  passes around the far side of the track,  .then crosses over to the .-stables, darts  in and out among the people, swings  around to the north end, and comes  back to the grand stand. When he  reaches this he jumps the fence and  dodges under the platform where the  vaudeville performances are " given,  crawls clear under this, comes out on  the farther side, climbs onto the platform and ascends a framework which  is used by some of the performers.  It is nnicli of a question whether the  dogs will be able to follow the scent  and catch iheir victim in spite of the  crowd that will be on the grounds.  Draper declares they can and will do it,  but many wonder if it is possible.  KELSON FAIR RATES  .

The rocker, the ground  sluice, the long torn, the arastra and  most all of the crude instruments used  by the pioneer gold diggers have crumbled with decay, or lie bramble-covered  and forgotten in abandoned diggings;  but not so the sturdy log cabin. This  was his den, his refuge, his home, and  the miner "built it not upon the sand."  But the appropriateness and general  utility ol the log cabin were not confined to the pioneer days. It serves  just as useful purpose on mining claims  and in mining camps today as it served  during the early '40s and '50s. And so  the cabin is still playing an important  part in the development of America's  mines and mining districts for untold  years yet to come.  The log cabin, or a group of log  cabins, give a mining camp an air of  comfort, solidity and permanence. The  "here today and there tomorrow"  camps are those, whose restless population seek shelter in shanties, half tent,  half boards or clapboard huts. The  saw mill\is doing much to make the log  cabin a thing of the past, since it is  far easier to build a house of boards  than one of logs. But the owner of a-  claim, or the builder of a camp, acts  wisely and well when he makes the log  cabin his architectural unit.  The writer does not intend this as a  treatise on rustic design, or a plea for  more of that "simple life.' that we hear  and read so much about, but rather  would ha��e it a brief "how to build it"  article, from an old-timer's view point.  This may not seem worth while, not  through any triteness of subject, but  because every ' miner and would-be  miner, every man who owns a claim,  or who has an inclination to stake one,'  firmly believes he can build a cabin.  Indeed, the log cabin is the simplest  kind of building, yet there are a lot of  smart men who "fall down hard" when  they attempt to erect one. Instead of  a cabin, the result of their labors is  more of a cross between a pig pen and  a,corn crib. l.  . The first thing the builder must have  is logs. These should all be carefully  selected and cut to proper length before  the cabin is started. Some prefer to  square the'log. This enables them to  fit more accurately to each other; also  it makes the house more snug, but it  makes a lot of extra work and takes  all of the genuine rusticity from the  cabin, For an ordinary cabin logs 6  inches in diameter are large enough.  They will last longer than logs of 8,  10 or 12 inches, as is sometimes used.  Leave the bark on, but remove protruding knots and defects.  After the logs are cut the right  length, provision being made for doors  and windows, comes the raising. This  is easy, provided there are two or three  or a half dozen to assist, with a good  dinner and plenty of apple cider in  sight, as was the case during the "log  raisings" of the early settlement days.  Burth^miSer^bf-today-must^content  himself with an appetite keened for  bacon and beans, dutch oven biscuits,  and a pot of black coffee.  The lo_*s are raised and laid cross  wise in tiers to the required height, the  angles being formed by a notch on  each side,&about one-third of the log's  diameter in depth and a few inches  from the extremity. The space between  the logs is made water-tight 'and airtight by plastering clay or stuffing  small bundles of twigs; sometimes a  combination of both is used. The interior is lined with split lathes or slabs,  the ceiling left with its low-hanging  beams. There must, of course, be the  wide fireplace, made of rocks and inud.  Placer miners frequently use a short  section of hydraulic pipe to top their  chimneys, as it gives a better draft and  makes the fireplace easier to construct,  The scantlings for - the roof are  smaller logs or poles, cut to fit before  they are raised. The better plan is to  make them amply long, that they may  extend protectiugly over, giving wide,  cool eaves for summer; they may even  be carried over four or five feet on one  side, and the extra cover thus afforded  made in a porch or "leanto." The  doors and windows are deeply ledged.  The space left for them, especially the  windows, should be accurately computed before the cabin is raised, otherwise the uneven, jagged ends of the  logs must be sawed and evened when  the sashes are put in.��� D.

Vancouvjc*-*, Sept. lo.--Bulkley valley as a desirable -portion of British  Columbia has been described by many  persons who have made trips to that  district, but its great;, mineral riches,  its abundance of game; and beauty of  scenery have not 3rcl been set forth as  by Mr. A. II. Wand of New York, who  has just returned after spending several months seeing what there is to be  seen there. Mr. Wane', is at the Hotel  Vancouver for a few days. He went  north last April, and the intervening  time has been spent -_ rincipally viewing mineral proposil-jtoiis. He is an  ardent sportsman, and'.-'he tells stories,  proved by photograph.*.-,., of trout, blue  grouse, goats aud ca:ribou that will  doubtless entice many to this paradise  of sport.  In speaking of the mLncral wealth  of the Bulkley valley, Mr.. Wand said  to the News Advertiser yesterday: "I  hardly know how to describe it. 1 wen I  north to see about what I had heard,  and iu the Telkwa river country I saw  copper propositions, the description of  which would hardly bes believed. I  might sa}- I was the gu.es-.-t at the camp  of the Telkwa Mining, Mulling & Development company, of Vancouver,  with which   A.   B.  Irwiiji, manager  of  the 'Pncilio. Coast Pipe company, is  prominently connected, and I never received better treatment in rtiy life.  Everything that was in the neighborhood from mineral specimens: to scenery, which was reached only after two  days' trt.vel aad which could not be  snrpassed among any mountains on the  face of the earth."  Just to show what mineral was in  the country, Mr. Wand produced several bags of specimens of copper,which  he had picked up at various points in  the district. Assays of some of these  made by J. O'Sullivan of this city, ran  SURPRISINGLY HIGH  anil these wero not counted as valuable  as others in his possession.  "This company, referring to the Telkwa Mining, Milling & Development  company, "has one of the largest propositions one can imagine, and the  way in which mone}' is being spent in  connection with the properties indicates  that in a few years the Bulkley will be  a mining camp equal to anything in  Montana. There is coal in abundance  right to hand and with all the essential  requirements such as these, prosperity  is inevitable. What, of course, is  needed, is transportation facilities, but  these will come."  In Mooseskin Johnny's lake, Mr.  Wand found trout which are unequalled  for quantity and quality in any other  body of water in North America.

The trout  there evidently had never risen to a  fly before, and as soon as the water  was rippled a large fish instantly took  the bait. As it darted away it was  pursued by perhaps thirty or forty  other trout, aud in the clear water  watching the chase was very exciting.  So plentiful were the rish that they  were hooked by the other barbs, not  caught, and this would occur almost  every time. Trout could be taken just  as quickly as hauled in."  That was one incident that  thoroughly interested Mr. Wand, but  what made him enthusiastic was the  blue grouse, goat and caribou. "It was  decidedly novel," was the way he put  it, "to see such rare and timid game so  unafraid of man that they did not try  to get away. When we went beyond a  glacier and shot a goat, which seemed  larger than I have ever seen mountain  goats before, the others were not  frightened. They had never heard,  perhaps, a rifle shot before, aud about  a donen came out from behind rock  crevices to see what the excitement  was. We could have bowled over them  all had we beeu inclined, but we had  the fresh meat of which we were particularly in need at that lime."  A rare photograph in his possession  is one in which Mr, Wand has a little  blue grouse on his finger while the  snap shot is being- taken. The party  came upon a mother with her brood of  ���fairly-sized youngsters, but they did  not flutter. He had no trouble in picking up one of the little birds, and as it  roosted on his linger the picture was  secured. It was then returual to the  family, which was still in the vicinity.  On a trip to view a fine portion of  the valley, a caribou was encountered.  These are animals of the wild, but this  one was making his first acquaintance  with bipeds. Instead of indicating-his  presence by the cracking of brush as  he made a swift retreat, he stood and  gazed at the party with eyes of wonderment, and when he did take a notion to  go it was with the leisurely ease of one  who did not care a rap. "P did not*  think I would see such sights when I  went info the 'country, and that not  above two days' travel from the camp."  iP  ^  Cold nights are coming* and you want the best'under-  wear.

Today the  price is about one-third as high.  IOmploving white mice as a reliable  test for dangerous quantities of carbonic oxide gas in mines has been  recommended in South Africa and  Australia.._and,,bught_to be   tried in  America, The respiration exchange in  a mouse is 20 times as rapid as in man;  consequently the mouse exhibits symptoms of blood saturation much more  rapidly. A physician proved that with  0.4 per cent carbonic acid in the air a  mouse gave symptoms of illness-  staggering gait���in \]/2 minutes, and  that it became unconscious in 3 minutes, whereas he himself did not feel  discomfort for half an hour. This  gives a .sufficient interval to allow the  miner to escape.  ���AY- DINNERS  '1  served in first-class style.  Splendid Menu.  LUNCH COUNTER  Open at all Hours.

The task of separating thediamonds i 'v-J.  from the bluegrouud in South Africa I  requires months. From the shaft the  ore is conveyed to what are called the ! >  "floors'*���great stretches of ground  cleaned oil' like a tennis court. The i J-5*"-  ore is taken there in trucks or cars, j X^  which are fastened ten feet apart to an I tx>  endles-* cable, 'propelled  by  the power | ^5  from the ������>nginc room.    Each   floor is ;   400 feet square, but their combined '  territory covers a great area of land, j  one mine alone having* "floors" which j  extend five miles. These "floors" are j  nothing more than dumping grounds, j  Upon their smooth surface is spread .  the bliieground to a depth of about ten ;  inches. Being v,ry susceptible to the ���  action of .;ir and water, the bluegrouud j  disintegrates after being- exposed sev- \  er.il months, and in thecrumbling such j  indestructible crystals as diamonds or j  garnets are released. This is facili- j  tated by hariowing the ore after it has 1  been exposed six months and is begin- 1  nilig to become pulverized. The harrowing is done by steam plows drawn '  back and forth over the -'floors'* by a '  cable. Any of the bluegrouud that is  not decomposed by the long exposure !  is taken to the crushing machine, where  it is pulverized. All the pulverized i  blueground is t.tken t. the pulsator or ;  separating rooms. {  c  ivood Liquor Co.,  Greenwood, B.
