The second annual masonic ball  was held  on   Wednesday   evening  last in the Cumberland Hal I.   The  arrangements were as neany  perfect as it was possible to make them,  there was a large attendance oi the  votaJies ot this pleasure, but  that  individual spirit of jollity and bon  hommie,   which    makes   itself  so  manifest in some gatheringp and is  so conspicuously abseiitNf rom others  was abroad in full force,  and   almost seemed to dinprOvo   the   assertions that are so frequently made  as to the ridiculous cliqu'ism  of so  called society.   If the ball was not  carried through in an entirely free  arid democratic spirit. aV any rate,  one and all made it their business  to keep their prejudices and class  instincts strictly in the background  As a* result the evening was a success, iivtbe highest degree and seve������  r'al people have declared that it was  bnO of the jolliest affairs.thay have  ,ever attended.    The hall had been  prettily decorated with flags, bunt  ing, etc., artistically arranged, while  the insignia   of   the* order   added  greatly to the general eff ct of *the  decorations.   The orchestra was in  good form and not only furnished  excellent music but.were also( very  good natured and obliging in the  matter of playing the many extra,-  insisted upon.    The supper provided by Mrs Piket was all that could  be desiredi.every seasonable delicacy being on the bill of fare.    The  affair was very successful  and  the  varied committees in charge deserve  tbe greatest credit for the splendid  result of their united efforts.  *  The music lovers of Cumberland  were mostly accorded  the pleasure  of dancing to the.

MR GRANT RETURNS.  Mr R. Grant, M.P.P. returned  Saturday from his trip to K -mlonp-*,  where, it will he remembered, he !  went some time ago on account of  his health. While there, he vi.-lttd  the Old Men's Home, and saw there  in several well-known Comoxians,  D.Murray, W. Fr-er, D. McMillan  John Holme.**. Poor Holmes died  during Mr Grant's stay in Kam-  loops, on Christmas day.

At present every eye is turned   towards   the   Bulkley   Valley  country, and there is no doubt a  large influx of settlers will  take \  place there in the. spring.    For the  hundredth time, the prospects for  the stock raiser in tbere are said to  be the best in the world and now  that it seems probable   that   the  G.T.P. will traverse the country in  that vicinity, no doubt the available lands will be quickly taken.  Mr Grant is lopking quite himself again, and feels as fit as  he  looks.

The Wlthorspooii house next morning
���'! seemed to bo deserted by everybody ex-
f\ i >pt the bine eyed "girl, who wns eat-
^ lug breakfast.   Her father and mother
%? (or whoever they may have been) were
fi not hi evidence.   Samehow I foil Into

Afterward I wiinilercil up to Iho

lot of personal quest Inns���for example,

was turning the matter over in my
mind I suddenly became aware that I
was whistling softly. It Is a bad habit
pf mine, somewhat less reprehensible
on this occasion because my companion seemed in no mood for conversation and thus left me to my own devices. But the essential point is that I
found myself whistling the little Swiss
song, and in an instant there leaped
into my Held of consciousness a perfect
recollection of having done precisely
the same thing before when Miss .Jones
and I had fallen into one of those deep
silences iii which she seemed to Iind a
melancholy pleasure.
The miracle of the lake stood explained, and by the knowledge of that fact
I was'so, startled that I got upon my
feet. Miss Jones raised, her eyes to
me Avith a question.
"Mr. Trusk is coming," said I, noticing that fact for the first time- "I
thought I heard footsteps."
The man was Walking on turf at a
distance of 100 yards, but Miss Jones
did not. consider It necessary to cross
'examine me on the subject of my auditory apparatus.
When Trask came up,.I. talked with
him a few minutes and then walked
back to the house. In my,room I sat
down by the window to think the thing
ont, "and I was making some small prog-'
ress when I became'aware; of a gentle
humming sound whichVresolved itself
into a scarcely audible, grossly inaccurate- yet recognizable performance of
u.at fated song. It was Jimmy Lamoine who was guilty of this dire atrocity, lie was standing on "the strip of
grass between the window and the
driveway, and his attitude and expression were��studiously designed to give
the impression that his music was
'purely ''involuntary,' .a' mere bodily act
Mr. Trask. 'It may be'his amendment"
of the scheme which I am now enjoying���namely, the sight of two ' heartbroken young creatures sayiug a never
ending farewell. Don't ask me to be
the cause of anything so sad. The fact
ls that I am in a position to sympathize
too fully. If Sibyl came here to forget, so did I. But it has been my hard
luck to have to do it alone. Mr. Trask
is helping her, whereas I do not even
know the postoffice address of the person whose image it is my business to
efface from the tablets of my heart."
And then I tried to tell him aboiit
Miss Lamoine, but the words wouldn't
come. I wished, of course, to tell the
exact truth, and the desire raised this
question, What is the truth In this matter? In the course of a long and hard
struggle with this problem I was surprised to hud myself whistling the
Swiss song and wondering how the girl
would sing It, wishing that I might
hear her, forgetting that she was really
| Miss Jones, holding her, as I had done
from the flft, for a half remembered
personality, distinct enough, If my
mind would only grasp It.
"There Is nothing In this,"  said I
aloud, and then I laughed at myself,
"Precisely," said he, "and now I am
prepared to give you my advice. Don't
write, that letter."
".Why not?!.' .        .
"Because you are all up In the air.
You haven't a foot on earth. Miss ���
Jones is not Miss Wayne. The girl in
the orchard Is not Miss Jones, nor ia
she any one else whom you have had.
the pleasure of meeting on these premises." ..-.       . .
"You know who she is?" I exclaimed.
"I have known Tor several days," he
replied. "I am not yet ready to tell
you. When 1 am ready, It will be the
last word you will hear from me In
some time. Now don't ask me any
questions. There is a strange complication here, and it may as well h*
solved all at once���perhaps tomorrow, \
perhaps the next day. Leave it to the I
future. As to the present, don't write
that letter. If you have anything to
say to your father, ask him to come
out here nnd have a talk." '
I glanced out of the window and saw
Jimmy Lamoine in the wagon that
went to town.
"Hold on," I cnlled tobim. "I want.
you to take a letter In for me."
I wrote It In 20 seconds on the lines
that Mr. Derringer had suggested.
Coughing is an outward sign of
inward disease.

SAW Derringer again after
dinner, nnd he persuaded me
to go out upon the road. i
"You and I need a little
general conversation," he said. "We
think too much about our own affairs.
We're getting sentimental. Let's smoke
strong tobacco this evening and discuss
thc business of the world. - Trask and
Scovel will help us." ��� r
Personally 1 would have preferred to:
go down to the lake, but I" recognized,
the force of Derringer's remark.. We'
found Trask on the road, but his companion was Mr. Wltherspoon, whom a
west wind had wafted to the eastern
border of the estate.
"Scovel has- been gone all day," said
the artist. "Pedestrian tour,-,I. guess.
He took a fieldglass with him. as if he
Intended to find some views."
"Hope he didn't go over to the hill,***
remarked Mr. Wltherspoon. "It's a
terrible place for snakes."
And he proceeded in his soft and
apologetic voice to tell us harrowing
tales of copperheads and black snakes,
rattlers and "hooples." He was In the"
midst of such a narration when Toer- '
ceived Scovel coming along the" road.
Twilight still lingered, and there waa
enough to reveal, that the lawyer had
tramped hard aild was very weary.
"We were Just speaking of you, Mr.
Scovel," said Wltherspoon. "We were
hoping that you hadn't been over on
tho hill."
He put his left hand upon the small ���
of his biiclj*,'..the. palm being outward,
and see-tned to straighten his spine by
a slow pressure in that region, and then
he coughed gently, not because he had
any ailment requiring him to do so,
but as a general expression of dissatisfaction with his physical condition.
Scovel waited for this characteristic .
performance* to be finished before-ho
"No," said \xe, "I haven't been near
the hill." ';
"Well,"you -just came by the edge of
It," ventured Mr. Wltherspoon. "Ilbw-
ever, the snakes never come out, .Into
the road. Most curious thing���can't be
dupllcntcd.lu the state, I'll wager,. The
hill's full of thorn, but you might as
well look fpr snjhke^; on on Itoliel-g '

looked uneasily behind lilm upon tho

No ono else sieniod to obscrvo the peculiarity of his manner, and wo did
not discuss him after he had gone.

A Valuable Pro������lnet From What "Waa  Once Regarded nn Waste.  Mineral wool is a soft substance consisting of, a mass of very fine mineral  fibers!" "which interlace one another in  every direction and-thus form an endless number of minute air', cells. It is  made quite simply, by directing a blast  of steam against a stream of molten  slag. Some _of the best is made from  blast furnaceI slag, an admirable illus-  tratiori of the value of what was once  regarded as a waste product. "  The slag is melted in a large cupola,  and as it trickles out of the,tap hole  it meets a high pressure steam jet  which blows it in fleecy elouds into the  storage room > provided for it. The  heavier wool naturally settles down  first, while the lighter portions are  blown further along by the force of the  steam, and so the material naturally  sorts itself.  Mineral wool is fireproof and may be  ,used_as Ji-Sound dcadenerjbetwgen the*  floors of buildings; it also serves as a  nonconducting covering for cold storage chambers and for pipes. For this  last purpose the wool that is ma-de  from sandstone is best, for it contains  no sulphur, which, when moisture is  present, is a corroding agent.  THE -BAGPIPES.

How. Thla Flrat B-iaentlnl In Swimming M������y Be. Acquired, .  A person who Is timid about the wSj  ter .can overcome the greatest part of  the difficulty of learning to Bwim by  the proper use of a wdah basin.  The obstacle that nervous persona  meet in the water Is not tlie conscious  fear* of drowning, but an involuntary  nervous shock that causes them to  gasp for air even before their faces are  under water. It is this gasping for  breath that drowns people.  .Ttyey .cannot .'control the gasping, and  consequently, they often ' snap for  breath when their, mouths are under  iwater. As the buoyancy of a human  body is easily disturbed, a few pints or  quarts of water swallqwed.iu these.in-  voluntary gasping acts serve to sink a  person who otherwise w^ould float long  enough for help to arriv'e.     ' '  Now, if a person afflicted with this,  Involuntary fear of getting under water will thrust the wholo face, gently  Into nn ordinary basin full of water  every day and stay there as long as  possible it will be only a short time before the gasping sensation begins to  disappear.  Then the bathtub should, be used, so  that the bather,, lying .full length,, can"  Immerse the entire head. At first this  will bring back all the old frightening  sensations of suffocation, but the attacks will be of short duration, and  within a few days it will be found that  the'total immersion can be mahitained  for" almost a fuli minute without'dis-  comfort of any kind.  .   >��������� ,v,  Once a person has learned how per-  "fectly"~comfortable-one- can- be-under -  water the first great.'step has been  taken toward learning to swim. ���������  Many otherwise good swimmers have  never really acquired this calmness  under water,' The result is that when  such a sw.immer is caught in an undertow or a swirling current his' confidence-leaves him ns soon as he feels  himself dragged-under the surface.,.In-,  stead-of-diving or remaining motionless and so preserving his breath lie  gasps involuntarily nnd naturally swallows water, aud the :choJcii\g sensation  at once forces 'him to t .(vshalR i. what  '.brpnth he has left'and gasp agji^^., ���������  Confidence under .water sif6'ukl,"bo  tlie first lesson in swlrainlrij*.'''"'"

Ho is an excellent mechanic, and bus .been in. the employ  of thi.* firm for upwards of ten  years. Hut although Mr. Etsell now  ranks among thc few men who are  never absent from their post of duty,  thc time was when he wus as often  absent as present, uii because ol" his  physical inability to perform his  work. For years Mr. .Etsell was a  great sufferer from sciatica, and at  times the suffering became so intense  , that, for days he was unable U������ leave  ���������'the hoiisc'. l'"  During these years, Mr. Etsell, as  may readily be imagined, was continually on the lookout for some  remedy that would rid him of tho  disease, but for a long time without  success. Doctors were consulted and  although ho took tho treatment prescribed, it did .not help him, Then  he tried electric treatment, but'"this  also failed to give relief, and in  despair he had about made up his  mind, that his case was hopeless'and  that ho would be a suffering, helpless cripple to the end of his ^'days.  Then ono day a neighbor advised  him to try Dr. Williams' Pink-Pills.  ,,At .'first he refused,' believing 'they  would prove ��������� like other medicines-'  but the neighbor was, so insistent,.  having herself been greiitlv'henefjted  'by thcsc'pills, so that a,t;?l'ast :he consented. ��������� The-remainder.1 df the. story,  may best'be told in -his; o,w;r" words: ���������  "When I began taking'these'pills,'"  said,Mr. Etsell to a reporter'rof the  Telescope, "I had been off work for  threo months.

Georgiana's  Lenten Duties  By RUBY DOUGLAS  Copyright, 1001, by T. C McClure  Eaton's well marked brows -were  drawn closely together In a frown.  The letter he had just finished reading  obviously did not please him. He returned the delicately scented missive  to its envelope nnd leaned back in his  chair.  "Hang the new minister!" he commented mentally. "Hang Lent, too!"  he added aloud.  , '"Faithfully yours, Georglana,'" he  repeated! "And she signs herself that  way because the new minister always  uses that form, does she? 'Isn't it fascinating?' she asks in her inevitable  .postscript, No, I cannot agree, with  Gcorglana. It has no fascination to  me. Inasmuch as she lias always signed  herself, 'Lovingly, Georgle.'J'  Eaton began to pace the room, and  as he thought over Georglana's letter  he grew more disturbed In mind. It  was all about Lent aud sewing bees  and flower guilds aud parish aid societies and'tbe new minister. The pastor said purple was the proper Lenten  color, and shfe had a new gown of that  shade in which she looked "perfectly  stunning." -Aside from purple being  the penitential colore the. new minister  adored It, of course, after his college  colors, orangey a!hd~black. ;, He was a  t Princeton marj,," _v... ������}  J "A JPrincetpn.cad, probably!" thought  *Eaton as he continued to make a eh':  cult-of his room every half minute.  -"Girls' are silly over the; cloth and  'brass .buttons.'1 One is &s: bad as1 the-  other!'; All the prejudices Eaton ever,  "ti'ad against" ministers and girls and  humanity irt general came trooping Into his ruffled:thoughts.

Would he go and set  Georglana once more or would lie ro  main In Boston and let. her religiou-  , fever lead- her into the sea of ruatri  mony with the ne*v minister?  1 Holy Saturday found bim on his wn*  to New York and Georglana. It was  late when be reached the Carelton  borne that night, and, to his surprise,  he was told that Miss Georglana was  In the study.  "With the 'new minister,'" he  thought, as he waited for her. His  heart dropped deeper and deeper into  the despair that had been drawing it  down for weeks. Could she not save  one evening for him when she had not  seen him for months?  All smiling and radiant and, If Eaton  could only have detected it, with a  wicked little twinkle In her eyes,  Georglana anneared in the doorwav.  "Gordon!" she cried and held out  both her hands. Eaton took them in  his own, but he was formal In his manner.  "Georglana," was all he said.  "We're just rehearsing the sermon."  she said wickedly. "Come on in." And  she dragged him inwillingly from tbe  room.  This was more than he had expected,  but Georgiana left him no alternative  but to follow her. She even held on to  his hand. Was,she going to enter the  presence of the new minister lh this  fashion* , ,  "He's so anxious 'to 'see you, Gordon," said Georgiana as- they crossed  the hall. Eaton wished he had not  come. ,. *  Georgiana opened the study  door.  "Jack," she said to the young man un-  ''der the green lafnp. "Gordon'svcome."  And then sbe stodd In the middle of  the floor and watched the two men  'grasp hands."  "Jack Carelton," said Eaton after a  minute.

Louizy's father,-Lyman Cottonwood;  striking out 'cross lots, lagged n little  while ho started his after breakfast  cob pipe. His gaze dwelt ruminatlvcly  upon' the big ash hopper a few moments, then traveled back to the form  of his daughter just appearing from  the smokehouse with a tub in her arms.  "Loiiizy!"  The young woman turned her head  around, set her tub upon a backless  chair and came forward, her low. flat  shoes patting softly over , the short  "goose grass." Her figure looked skimp  in its blue calico washing gown; her  locks were hempy in color and not tco  plentiful; she had gathered them up  high and twisted them so tightly that  Vhe outer corners of her eyes were  drawn upward like those of a Chinese  woman.

All the candidates for municipal  fronors at the coming eltctian aro  liojt yet in the field, but it is nevertheless clear to us that our citizens  will have a sufficiency of good men  and.,true, many of them possessed  of successful experience, amongst  whom to choose members of the  Council of 1906. Thus, although  Mayor Short retires for business  reasons after a term of very capable  pervice, there are in Aldermen Wiilard and Daniels, competing candidates for tbe position, which  either can fill with credit to himself  and advantage to the city.   Mean  'while, as we have said, although  the ranks of the Alder manic candidates are probably riot yet com plate,  there are already enough men of  good capacity preparing for nomination to fill the various vacancies.  More, ������t present it would be premature to say, pending the opening  of (he campaign and the luriher  jjifwlosure of the policies of the respective cundidfliep.  It is stated that there is no money \  in renting houses, and this is given'  as the reason that the persistant  demund for house rent meets with  no supply.
