Laokie, chief engineer of  the Midway and Vernon, returned this  week from Okanagan district, tl"rough  which he accompanied Messrs. Schmidt  and Hatvey, the experts for the financial interests that are purchasing the  bonds of the Midway and Vernon railway. The party went down the lake  as far as Kelowna and visited the  various agricultural centers of the  Okanagan valley. Mr. Schmidt, who  has j had a long and successful experience in land matters, was simply  amazed at the richness of the Okanagan valle3'. No where had he seen  soil more' productive nor a district  that had greater advantages. He  simply bubbled over with enthusiasm,  and there can be no question regarding* the character of his report,  Mr. Harvey, the mining expert, had  not'the time to visit the mining sections tributary to the Okanagan valley, but he saw sufficient in the  Boundary and West Fork, districts lo  convince him that the country was one  which fully warranted the necessary  expenditure of money to build tlie  road.  These two gentlemen, each an expert in his own line, represent lhe  stro_gest?'Ji_B_ci:il institutions in.the  world today, and favorable reports  from them may mean much to the district outside of the construction of the  Midwaiy and Vernon.  Now that the construction of this  railway is an assured fact, Robert  Wood and the other original promoters  are to be congratulated on the satisfactory 4ou'tcome 'of their efforts to  secure transportation for the promising distrfct.to be traversed by the railway. Mr,. Wood had extensive mining  interests in tlie West Fork district.  He was also interested in the Okanagan as well as in the Boundary, and  he appreciated tlie importance of securing direct railway connection between the rich agricultural district on  the north and the equally rich mining  district on the south auci incidentally  open up a still richer district along  the' West Fork. He, James Kerr,  Robert Kerr, and others joined together "and'secured a_ch_rteV ff oitrthe  provincial legislature, which after*  wards granted a cash subsidy of 55,000  a mile to aid in the construction of the  road. Federal legislation was then  secured and the Dominion parliament  granted the statutory subsidy, which  in this instance will amount to the  maximum subsidy of S6,000 a mile,  After several efforts were made to interest capital, A. A. Arthur and John  Cain of New York took hold and .successfully financed the venture.  The present otlicers of the Midway  and Vernon are: President, John  Cain,,New York; vice-president, Chas.  S. Steel, Pittsburg; general manager,  A. R. Pope, who has his office here  and is in charge of the business end of  the line; secretary-treasurer, D. FI;  McDowell, Victoria; Ralph Smailes,  Greenwood ; Robert Wood. Greenwood,  and L. S. Cook, Pittsburg, are also  directors of the company.  In these days of railway building  nearly every important railway company has its construction company  and the Midway and Vernon is no exception. The Okanagan Construction  company was organized with Frederic  H. Allen, New York, president; A. A.  Allen, New York, vice-president, and  A. E- Best, secretary-treasurer. .A. B.  Webb, assistant treasurer,-has his  office in Greenwood and has charge of  the pay,.-office for the construction, of  the roati.;'  The   0,Ka��agan   Construction   com-  **��**-.  pany is building ten miles of the road,  with McLean Bros., Vancouver as  superintendents ot construction. As-  soon as  Mr.  Arthur returns  to  New  York the contract for the entire line  will be let and the work vigorously  carried on to completion.  Mr. Arthur and his associates have  succeeded in interesting English and  German banking houses in the venture, and the bonds against the ��road,  amounting to $30,000 a mile, will be  taken over by them. These big financial concerns sent Messrs. Schmidt and  Harvey to examine the country and  report.  The Midway and Vernon enjoys the  distinction of being independent of  either of the two powerful railway corporations operating in this part of the  West. Great railway " corporations  have their moments of weakness just  lii<e ordinary folk, and it is amusing  to watch their tactics. The Great  Northern is fully convinced the Midway and Vergon is a C. P. R. scheme,  and looks with suspicion upon - its  its active operations, while the C. P. R.  is equally strong in the belief that thia  is another way Hill has of hitting the  C.P.R. A little-; investigation would  have convinced either company that  the Midway and Vernon is an important development road uthafc will increase traffic for either road.  No  Poison  in   Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy  From Napier New Zealand, Herald-  Two years ago the-Pharmacy Board of  New South Wales, Australia, had an  analysis made of all the cough medi:  cines that were sold in that market.  Out of the entire list they found only  oae that they declared was entirely  free from all poisons. - This exception  was Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,  made by the Chamberlain Medicine  Company, Des Moines,' Iowa,U. S. A.  The absence of all narcotics makes  this remedy the 'Safest and best that  can be had; and it is with a feeling of  security that any mother can give it to  her little ones. Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy is especially recommended, by  its makers tor coughs, colds, croup  aud whooping cough. When taken in  time it prevents pneumonia. Thist.  remedy is for sale  by   all druggists.  F. F. Ketchum  returned to Beaverdell on Saturday's stage-  Blake Wilson of P. Burns & Co. was  a visitor to the city this week.  James' G.

Spar is a general name in mineralogy  for a cleavable mineral which is not an  ore. For instance, there is feldspar,  colespar or- cWvavablc calcite. Iceland spar in its transparent variety,  flour-spar, satin spar, or fibrous gypsum, tabular spar or woilastonite and  heavy spar or barite. ���1".:7"  BOUNDARY GREEK   TIMES,  COMING STATESMEN.  Conservative circles are interested in the coming of the premier  and the' chief commissioner of  lands and works, who are expected here in .a few days.  Messrs. McBride and Green are  visiting different points in the interior of the province, feeling the  political pulse and' incidentally  ascertaining what the public requirements are.  While in Greenwood party  leaders will be met and matters  affecting party interests discussed.  It is understood that local Conservatives will strongly protest  against the personnel of the  licensing board for the Boundary  district, and the remarkable  manipulations of that remarkable  body. Strong protests will be  made against Geo. Fraser, M. P,  P., having the political patronage for the Greenwood riding as  well as for" his own riding and  against the appointment of none  but Fraser henchmen on the  licensing board for the district.  An ultimatum will be delivered  that if Premier McBride expects  any active support in Greenwood  riding, a fairly representative  and reasonably reputable board  of license commissioners must be  appointed or one created for  Greenwood riding. Other pressing subjects will be discussed.  The premier and his distinguished .colleague will be  warmly received in this locality.  The resignation of John Houston as member of the provincial  legislature will not be received  by Mr. Speaker Pooley. John  has decided to play the game a"t  Victoria for at least one more  session. All of which is pleasing to Mr. Richard McBride.  Last Monday's issue of the  Vancouver Province appeared  without an editorial page. This  ig about the only sensible thing  the Province has done in many  ,   months.  )  BANK.

South African diamond mines  are irregular-shaped pipes extending  vertically downwards to unknown  depths.     These   are presumably   the  -volcanic _v en ts _ of_ _sub terranean_jccavities. They are filled with a. mixture  of clay, conglomerate, breccia, etc.,  and show no sign of metamorphism.  The diamonds were probably  formed  - at a former time and then emptied  with the debris into these pipes. In  addition to diamonds over eighty  species of minerals have been discovered in this mass.  The > Smithsonian Institution at  Washington, D.

His will  read: " I bequeath the whole of my  property to the United States of  America to found at Washington, under the name of the Smithsonian Institution, an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge  among men." The President of the  United States is the president of the  institution, ex-officio. The buildings  were not completed until 1855. The  National Museum is a part of the  Smithsonian Institution.  Unless a bore hole is accurately surveyed, but little reliance can be placed  on its revelations as to depth and dip  of the different formations encountered  This is due to the fact that the bore  hole itself is so subject to deflections  that its returns are erratic. Shaft-  sinking based on bore hole data is  proving the unreliability of the latter.  The horsepower of a boiler is tbe  measure of its capacity to generate  steam.

In geology the word segregation refers to that tendency of mineral ingredients to separate from the parent  magma, and to crystallize out, each by  itself. In granite and other crystalline  massive rocks, veinlike portions are  found in which the matter is either  coarser or finer than the rest of the  mass. These were produced at the  final stage of cooling of the rock when  the seggregation from the original  molten or yiscrous mass occurred along  certain lines or around particular  centers. These are termed seggregation veins.  In the ;petrified forests of Arizona  there are trunks of trees three to four  feet in diameter, and over 100 feet in  length, entirely changed to quartz.  According to. Dana the trees now sili-  cified i_ Arizona appear originally to  have flourished on the shores of an inland lake, into which ihey fell and became waterlogged; then they were  buried beneath volcanic material of a  highly silicious character, which underwent alteration through the action  of water, setting free more silica than  the water could hold in solution. As  the wood decayed this^ silica was deposited in its cells until finally the  woody fibrr completely disappeared  and what, was once wood became  quartz.'

'  7 ,It has beed suggested as a means for  . greater security- to policy-holders that  the Dominion government should pre-  '  acribe the' securities in' which insurance   companies should- invest   their  funds.   While this might prove to be  a-means to greater security than is af-  forded'by leaving the selection of investments toi the'companies,  it must  ,notvbe forgotten that too strict a-limi-  tation of the range of secirities might  -���.cause*, a considerable reduction in the  ���ft        '    ��� .1  . companies' revenue and compel an ad-  . vance in the rates of premium.

They have been crosscutting and have  struck a body of very fine bornite  samples which evoke very favorable  comment from local experts.  The diamond drill at work for the B.  C. Copper company on the Helen H.  Gardiner mineral claim, Copoer mountain, employs about a half dozen men  in its operation. It is understood  some 3,000 feet will be sunk indifferent places. The daily average of drilling is about 25 feet and will last well  into the winter.

As to what constitutes proper- administration in the^case, we confess we  hesitate to "offer an opinion���there being so many views already before the  public. We sympathize heartily with  all the gentleman���and they are many,  whose characters are being traduced  by various* sections of -the' press be-  cause.of their connections with Le Roi  affairs, passes all understanding.

During the tour >of the  tariff commission Midway was  -one-of-the points-visited.���Representations were made to the  ministers and John Bain, assistant commissioner of customs, that  considerable smuggling was going on from the town of Ferry  immediately across the international boundary line, and application was made for a preventive  office. The department did not  feel justified in adding a new  man to the customs office at Midway and in order to effectively  cope with the difficulty, instructions were issued to Collector  Gardom to move the customs  office to the boundary line, so  that he might be in a position to  act as proventive officer as well.  We trust that this explanation  will prove satisfactory to the  hypercritical Gazette.  oust Hon. Walter Scott. * In political affairs the people of the  Northwest are not much' different from those in ��� other parts of  the Dominion, and are therefore  not slow to show their opposition  to a political trimmer. The people of the Northwest are also not  anxious to begin the life of the  new provinces amid strife and  they believe that this would be  the result if Haultain were returned to power.  At this distance it looks as if  the two governments in the new  provinces would be returned with  good working majorities.  A NEW CITY.  NORTHWEST    ELECTIONS.

It escaped the handicap of securing incorporation too  soon and i* therefore in a splendid position to -grapple with the  problems which municipal) government '- brings. Cranbrook is  one of the most prosperous towns  in the interior. It has a splendid  citizenship, loyal to the best interests of the town. With a  good municipal council, with no  serious difficulties to meet save  the installation of a good waterworks, Cranbrook should begin  and continue to be an ideal municipality. All depends on its first  council aud how they deal with  the question of public utilities,  which are generally handed over  by a new municipality to private  corporations.  BELATED PRAISE.  Now that Sir William Mulock  has withdrawn from political life  Conservative journals are making  amends for the many hard things  said about him while he was a  member of the Laurier government. This practice of Tory  journals of withholding anything  but abuse until a Liberal statesman is dead or has retired from  ���active politics, has led H. F.  Gadsby, the talented correspondent of the Toronto Star, to pen  the following lines, supposed to  .have been spoken by Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, after reading the tribute  in the Tory press to Sir William:  If I should die tonight,  The Mail would look upon  my quiet  face;  Perhaps, who knows, would even have  the grace  To say that Laurier didn't do so bad,  Considering the troubles that he had,  And, weighing this and t'other���who  can tell?���  Admit that I   had managed fairly  well���  It would, that is, if I were dead all  right.  If I should die tonight,  The World would come and stand beside my bed.  And take back all the hard things it  had said,  And point out  how I got the best of  Blair,   - '  And prove I did the State good _errice  there,  And, sobbing editorially, explain     ,  How well I stood with "W.

If I should die tonight,  The Hamilton Spectator would forget  That it had ever tried my soul to fret,  And quivering   with   remorse . would  softly say:  "We-   always    loved    poor,     erring  Laurier,  And though sometimes he caused our  cheek to blench,  The only reason  was  he thought in  French"���  It would, if I, were dead for keeps  tonight. ~-~~  If I .should die tonight,  ���Before my body was put underground  The {[Opposition   press  would   gather  round j  And intimate  that I had been  some  good, *  That often I had been misunderstood.

The Provincial Bureau of Information recently published a valuable bulletin of the timber resources of the  province. We have pleasure in publishing the following excellent resume  of the document, which we take from  the Vancouver 'Lumberman and Contractor, formerly known as the B, C.  Lumberman.  The introductory table shows rthat  there are in the province 132,750,000  acres of timber land, the total for the  whole of Canada being 1,657,600,000  acres, this immense area being almost  equal to the combined timber acreage  of the other timber countries of the  world.  Next to her great treasury of minerals  the bulletin points out, the most readily  available, if not the moat important of  British Columbia's natural resources  is her immense timber reserve. British  Columbia may now be said to possess  the greatest compact area of merchantable I timber on the North American'  continent, and although great forest  fires have raged jn the interior in the  interior in the years gone by, the coast  districts possess the major portion of  the choice timber, and there, by reason  of the dense growth and the humpity  of,the climate, the ravages of fire have  not had any appreciable effect on trie  supply  As far north as, Alaska the coast is  heavily timbered, the forest line following the indents and river valleys  and fringing the mountain sides. Logging operations so far have extended  to Knight's Inlet, a point ou the coast  of the mainland opposite the north end'  of Vancouver Island. Here the Doug-  las fir, the most important and widely  dispersed of the valuable trees, disappears altogether, and the cypress or  yellow cedar takes its place. North of  this cedar, hemlock or spruce are the  principal timber trees, It will be of  interest to know .that Douglas fir was  named after David Douglas, a noted  botanist who explored New Caledonia  the early twenties of last century. It  is a very widely distributed tree, being  found from the coast to the summit.of  the Rocky mountains, and as far east  as Calgary and as far north as Fort  McLeod. On the coast it attains immense proportions, is very high and  clear of- imperfections, sometimes  towering three hundred feet in the aiir  and having a base circumference of  from 30 to 50 feet, Thd best averages  however are 150 feet clear of limbs  and 5 to 6 feet in diameter. This. is  the staple timber of commerce, aften  classed by the trade as Oregon pine.  It has about the same specific gravity  as oak, with great strength, and has a  wide range of usefulness, being especially adapted for construction work.  It is scientifically described as standing midway between the spruce and  the balsam, and in the opinion of"Pro-  fessor Macoun, the Dominion naturalist, is a valuable pulp-making tree  The Giant Arbor Vitas (cedar) is  next to the Douglas fir in importance  in British Columbia, where it attains  its greatest size oc Vancouver Island,  along the coast and in the lower parts  of the rivers of the Coast range. It ia  rarely found in the dry interior of  British Columbia, but it is > abundant  in the river* valleys and on the slopes  of the Selkirk and Coast ranges'.  Though seldom found more than 150  feet in height, in circumference it  rivals the Douglas fir, trees of from 8  to 10 feet in diamejer not being rare,  aud they are occasionally found much  larger. It is chiefly used in ��t_e manufacture of shingles, for which purpose  it is unequalled by any other wood.  There are over one hundred sawmills  ���in the province, big and small, with a  combined daily capacity of over 2.000,-  000 feet, but this limit has never been  reached, the annual cut running between 300,000.000 an- 350,000,000 feet.  The acreage of timber under lease is  about 2,000 square miles, and the total  area of forest and woodland is estimated by the Dominion statistician at  285,554 square miles, or 182,754,560  acres, but this must not be taken as all  of present commercial value, as much  of it is covered with small trees, only  fit *for fuel and local lumber, which  would not be considered as "timber"  by loggers, whose present methods of  selection are very destructive, as they  choose only the largest and best of Ihe  trees, In a fsw years from now where  timber, by reason of its scarcity else-  wnere, becomes more valuable, much  that lis! now discarded by the timber-  men will be gladly utilized, and in ail  probability old limits will be cut over  several times.     _  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy.

V  ���l'\  ;" >'  \ )  !  1  f.  i  OOO  OOO  Neither one spoke, although Temple  lifted his cap mechanically and waited,  not knowing what she would do.  '������'-.She did the most, sensible, natural  .thing under the circumstances and the  nost characteristic as well. She  simply laughed up at him and put out  one slim, bare hand in friendly  fashion.  . "Isn't it a glorious morning? It is  my first Easter at sea. I came out  early on purpose for the sunrise.  Let's take .'-he other side of the   boat."  "You get the wind there," Temple  hesitated.  "I like the wind," she said happily,  '-'Every one keeps to the cozy, sheltered side of things. If you hunt the  windy side you hunt alone."  He followed her in silence. It was  over two years since he had seen her.  There was a half acknowledged little  twinge of annoyance in him now. '  Vaguely he had never expected-to see  her again. He tried to remember just  how far the engagement had gone���  three weeks, about. He had not even  finished college. He had oeen an idiot  of a kid ready to fall in love and out  again six times a week and twice on  ' Sundays.  And Geraldsne Moore had been his  % first serious' affair. The first girl he  had met whom he thought he could not  live without. She had been a delicious  sort of girl, a willful, madcap, tantalizing girl, with an undercurrent of  dreamy southern mysticism in her  gentler moods that seemed to give  ' promise of a splendid womanhood.  ��� She had broken the engagement herself. He had believed she broke his  heart as well. And then at college the  news had come to him of her marriage  withi Kingsley Haines It had brought  him out of boyish cynicism with a jerk: I  After the first cold water shock he had  felt inclined to congratulate himself  more than Kingsley. He caught^ rumors of their honeymoon pace now and  then. It was not a steady one. After  . three months in Europe Kingsley had  --come back home, and Mrs. Haines had  remained in Paris with her mother.  At this point rumor stopped and let  imagination fill in the gap.  Temple's imagination was an active  one, and he felt cordially sorry for  Haines when news came that he had  broken his neck in an ugly fall out on  Long Island in a cross country run.  That had been a year ago. So much  had developed in Temple's life since  then that he he did not realile how  completely he had forgotten _ Mrs.  Haines until he met her face to face  Easter morning 200 miles from Southampton on an ocean liner.  She stopped suddenly in front of  two deserted chairs.  "We can sit here a moment. Have  you had breakfast ? No? Neither  have I- Doesn't the sea look like a  Mexican opal? There's a sunrise in  every wave. Talk to me. Was it two  years ago or 2,000?"  She was laughing. Temple joined  in" it with "an effort. He was devoutly  wishing it had been 2,000 years ago.  She w atched his face with keen merry  eyes.  '  ���'It isn't pleasant to remember, is it,  Archie? Isn't queer, no man likes to  remember old love affairs. He always buries them decently and resents  any irapromtu resurrections."  "And a woman?")    . '  She shrugged her shoulders and  looked out at the opal tinted sea.  "To a woman old loves are oniy rose  leaves faded. She generally loves the  fragrance of her rose jar."  Temple squared his shoulders slight-  ly-  "But she hunts the fresh roses for  everyday use every time," he said  bluntly.  Mrs. Haines' eyebrows lifted, but  she was not displeased.  "Do you bear malice so late in the  day ? You must not. If it hurts you,  Archie," she hesitated an instant, and  went on softly, "be assured you had  full, unconscious revenge. If I made  a mistake, I have paid a penalty even  your malice would not have exacted."  Temple was silent. He wished she  would not take that tone with him.

Last time 1  saw hes she was riding a crazy polo  pony on a dead gallop with her. brothers out at Lakewood. She wasn't (sixteen then. She's a perfect sensation  now. That tint of red hair in a child  is simply superb in a woman. Do you  know her?"  "Know Margaret?" Temple checked himself.    "Oh, yes, I know her,"  "I wonder who she is with. Wasn't  she engaged or something? Iheard a  pretty story of some little romance she  had just before her'coming out. A  girl should not entangle herself before  she is a debutante. It takes the first  blush of the rosebud, don't you know."  "Yes, I suppose it does," said Temple carelessly. "None before, but all  she can get after. That's the unwritten law in those things, isn't it?"  "Don't be snappy.. It shows age and  dissappointment. A man is never a  cynic until he has tasted  sour  grapes.  and you are not old, Archie���twenty-  five. You see I know, because there  is only a year between us."  "There are two." Temple smiled at  her and rose from his chair. He had  caught a glimpse of a figure in brown  comingtoward them. "Two thousand."  "Good morning, everybody," called  Margaret. "Why don't you wait> for  me, Arch? Isn't he a terriblejboy, Mrs.  Haines?"  Temple put his arm around her and  laughed as the wind blew wisps of  curly hair across his lips.  "I haven't told the secret yet. Peggie," he isaid. "We may as well start  in with Mrs. Haines , It will all come  out by the time we land in New^York."  * "Of course it will, and who's afraid?"  She smiled down at Mrs. Haines joyously. "We've run away, you know.  It's a whole month now. We were'  married in New York and caught .the  first boat over, and we've ���had'- the  greatest time honeymooning and not  answering cables or letters or anything  I didn't want to be a debutante and  fuss around everywhere for a year or  so, and Archie and I had been engaged  nearly a year, so we just settled things  ourselves and ran away. You used to  know Arch, didn't you?"  Mrs. Haines kissed the bride very  gently and graciously. She did not  look at Temple,  "Along time ago, dear. He is ' a  splendid boy and I know you will be  happy, both of you. I wish I could  give you lilies this morning. Easter  and lilies and young love always seem  to go together. But I have only the  faded leaves of a rose jar 2,000  years  old."   She hesitated.  Temple was looking out at the waves  of rose and pearl, his fade pressed tenderly to the red brown curls. They  had forgotten her, and after a moment  she went quietly away from them,  back to the sheltered side of the boat  where the, rest of the world took its  morning stroll., i  FLOYD & COX.

MISTAKEN  IDENTITY  The train stopped only" a few .mo-  _ ments, but the conductor and a porter  bustled out, with deference in ��� there  every moment, and assistance the 'one  lady into tlie car with much bowing.  The train was already in- action  again when Enos stumbled breathlessly up the steps and sought to enter the  car. The conductor was standing inside the door.  -   "This is a parlor car, sir," he said.  ' "Oh, that's all right," Enoa answer**  ed quickly.    "Extra, I s'pose?"  . >"Of course; ��but I doubt if there's  any unoccupied space.   Porter!"  The car attendant was just   returning from the lady's chair. * He stopped  inquiringly, dusting cloth in hand.  "Have you any spare seats?"  . '-"Just one, sah, down t'oher end.'"  ��� "Very^ well give'it to this gentleman."  .The conductor turned* as he spoke  and preceded him a few paces down  the car, then stopped and bent over the  chair ot a lady. As he passed, Enos  leaned' toward   her   with a   diffident  --"Hello, Martha,'-", but-the- increasing  noise of the train drowned his  voice,  and he stumbled on  with crimsoning  face   The lady had not even  perceived him.  Enos followed the porter through the  car.hat in hand, with a feeling that he  was intruding into some one's drawing  room. Passengers were seated or reclining in _vz.riou attitudes���some  reading, some talking, but most of  them with their attention fixed upon  the chair over which the-"- conductor  was leaning. Enos had never been  in a drawing room car before, but even  amid all this elegance and among  these strangers he perceived that  Martha was understood and appreciated better than he had understood and  appreciated her himself. He heara a  subdued "Who is she?" from one side  and a "Don't know, but evidently a  somebody," from the other.  He turned his chair so that he could  watch her and still not be especially  conspicuous. The conductor or porter  was at her chair every few minutes  trying to devise new means for her  comfort. 'Curtains were drawn or  raised, a ventilator opened to let in  more air, the. window closed to keep  out a draft. Even j the paper boy  seemed to catch the infection, for he  was continually' leaving periodicals  for her to examine at her lessure.  Enos watched her with mingled feel-  lings of surprise and pleasure and perhaps with some depression.,. Heretofore he had looked upon her as in a  way belonging to him. Now with the  entire car paying her homage, he  wondered at his audacit3'. He wished  that he had been bold enoug to ask  straight out to be her escort on this  little trip instead, of watching over  her, as he was from a distance.     He  wished that  he had  Dressed  his   suit  more assiduously and marveled at his  presumption in pressing it as strongly  as he had.  The conductor came through the car,  and a man in the next chair reached  but and touched his,arm.  "Can you tell me who she is?" he  asked in a low voice. '"The car seems  to'be gatting curious over so much attention"  The:conductor answered in a voice  equally low, but Enos caught the  words.  "She's* Mrs. Roche, wife of Cattle  King Roche, you know. He's making  a deal for-.our railroad. That's wliy  our management is anxious to show  him attention. .We received notice  that Jshe would, take our train at" a  certain point and for us- to show her  all the courtesy in our power; Seems  a'very nice little woman, but a little,  just'a little, too pleased wich everything. Gives one an impressien that  she hasn't traveled much. But I have  heard that Roche made his money very  suddenly, so perhaps the attention is a  little overwhelming,"  Enos had turned away before this  and was again watching Martha. He  had heard thata man of the name of  Roche was negotiating for the railroad,  and he now allowed his1 glance to wander up the car, finally fixing upon a  richly dressed woman in the chair beyond Martha as the one who was a little overwhelmed by attention. She  did look self concious and, he thought,  just a little supercilious too.  As they stood upon the platform at  their destenation a. half hour later  watching the train glide away Martha  saw Enos turn toward her, not slowly  and diffidently, as was his wont, but  with head erect and both hands out.  And somehow after the experience on  the train it did not seem strange, but  rather a natural sequence To have  seen him awKward and ill at ease .just,1  then would have been a shock. It was  so much nicer for men to be easy and  courteous, c_d Enos was king among  men.  She put her hands into his naturally,  "Ohj Enos," she breathed' "wasnf  it beautiful? I nevei\bould imagine it  could be so nice in a train. "Why didn'  you tell me?"  " "Well,* I don't recon I knew," he acknowledge frankly.' "I was never in  one of these parlor cars before, and it  isn't so awfully nice in one "of the  others when it's crowded with folks.  But say, Martha," still holding her  hands and allowing something to come  ,into his voice which she had never  heard there before, but which brought  a soft color to .her cheeks, -'you looked  awfully pretty in those nice clothes,  the prettiest I have - seen. There  wasn't a woman in the car who could  touch you in looks, not even the one  who's to buy the railroad. I just sat  and looked at you and wished" I'd got  tilings settled more solid and wondered  if I'd ever dare-to speak to sou at all.  But! just cau't wait any longer, Martha"���his voice quivaring with * suspense���"not a minute." Do you s'pose  you could learn to love mc a little���not  all at once, you know, but just a little  at a time, as 'you cau.***-I didn't intend  to be so hasty and inconsiderate,- but  that ride seems to have stirred me all  somehow. Bat', don't.you feel upset,  Martha.' Just take all the time you  want to think it over, dear."  The -flush Ideepened. Did she hear  aright? Had that last word ' really  come from Enos' slow lips?  "I don't need auy time to think it  over, Enos," she answcied in a low  voice, but firmly.    "I do love you."  She might have added that  this  answer had been "ready and  waiting for  him more than ten years.           '   *  -  --'-No; do-you really,-Martha?_   He made an impulsive movement,  but was suddenly ��� conscious that the  platform was well filled with people  and that some of them were looking at  him curiously.  ."I'll ge. a carriage for you, dear,"  he said hurrn ly, "and���and I guess, if  you don't mind, I'll ride along. I  never have ridden with you yet���not  right close, by, you know."  When the Carriage was procured and  he had helped her in, almost timidly,  she looked up into his face.  "I don't beljeve that I ever shall forget that train ride, Enos," she said.  "Nor I," heartilly. "Sitting there  ���watching you and seeing all the men  round made me hasty and inconside*"-  ate. Butl'nigladof it now. I suppose it might have been a long time  before I felt I'd a right to speak."  She caught her breath suddenby,  her face paling.  "Oh, En6s," she woispered, ''I���I  never paid them. You told me. about  getting a ticket, but I was .late, and'  they hurried me to the car and were so  nice to me that I��� I never thought  about paying. What shall I do? And  they were so awfully nice too."  He looked puzzled.  "It does seem seem sort of fuun3','"  he acknowledged. ''Generally '.nev're  pretty ^particular about pa)-. I wonder  they "didn't ask."     -  "They didn't want to hurt my feelings, Enos. They were awfully, nice,  but I'm so.ashamed."  He.considered a moment.

The owners of the Rambler on Wallace mountain received an offer of  $20,000 for the property last week,, the  first payment $2,000 to be made in one  year from the date of bond, the purchaser offering to work continuously  and ship regularly from the mine.  Strange to say, the offer was not accepted, J. W. Nelson, one of the owners, refusing to transfer his interest  until the 200 level is reached, as the  ore might pinch or peterout altogether.  >-s**ww,>wiK-*��>-K��:'W*<  K*-*->X-��X---^  ^��i3"-v'��.

At  present there is nearly 55,000 worth of  ore on the dump ready fur shipment.  Two men are taking out about S2.000  worth of ore each month. The ore runs  from*$100 to SS00 to the ion, and still  the they refuse to bell, Hnw do men  like the owners of the Rambler expect  promoters to live ?  Gold is where you find it. The better the facilities for finding the more  gold you get. Iu the good old days the  prospectors started into the hills, found  float and uncovered acres of wash and  other extraneous matter. Sometimes  found the lead, ofl'ener didn't. When  he was lucky he sold to the capitalist  who continued the work of digging  and delving for the precious metal. It  was an antiquated' method of doing  things that was bound to give way to  more modern ideas of mining. Even  the man with the diviniug rod must  now take a back scat. Recently there  appeared in the district a man with a  small- instrument- com taiiung-certain  chemicals and he guarantees to find  you a high grade vein while you wait.  He can tell you the quality of the ore,  how near the surface it can be found  and the best place to sink to secure it.  He was the one thing lacking to insure  the success of every high grade proposition in the district. In the future no  blanks can be drawi.. Every claim  becomes a high grade paying mine.  A. S.

There are three mountain ranges  known as the Sierra Nevadas in the  world, they being in Spain, in California, and Columbia, South America.  The silver coinage of the United  States contains 900 parts silver and 100  parts copper, while that of Great Bri-  tnin contains 925 parts silver and 75  parts copper.  The hard asphalt deposits of the Indian Territory resemble semi-anthracite coal so closely that prospectors are  frequently deceived in the identity of  the former.  The chiei money of Siam is the ti-  cal, a silverjsoin of the value of about  30 cents. The Mexican dollar is also  used considerably. Only silver and'  bronze coins are issued by Siam.  The manufacture of sulphate of ammonia is a relatively simple process  and consists essentially in the absorption of ammonia gas in sulphuric acid  anp the crystallization of the resultant  saU. "   The treatment to revive a person unconscious from an electric shock is the  same as that to revive those unconscious from lack of air. Artificial respiration should be induced and con  tinued until all doubt of death is  removed.  The application of electric driving  to winding plants has several advantages. The installation is eminently  simple, the number of movable parts  smaller than in a steam plant, and  supervision of plant is, generally  speaking, more simple. Foran intermittent service steam is by no means  as suitable as .electricity.  * ������ ���.---.  Only a few years ago the object of  every Rand mill manager was to carry  out his*- milling in such a way an to  produce as small a percentage of fines  as possible.

The sand blast is one of the most  cbnvenient and "'efficient methods of  cleaning iron and steel prior to painting. The usual form of blast is con -  nected to an air line carrying air at a  pressure of 60 to 100 pounds.  By-product coke ovens are the leading producers of ammonia in the  country. They also furnish the supply of crude gas liquor which is used  in the manufacture of soda by the so-  called ammonia process.  The mineral collection of the American Museum of Natural History, New  York, is valued at $200,000.  There is practically no device that  will directly separate water from oil.
