"One of the causes of the rush,"  said Mr. Aidano, "is the fact that  Messrs. Watson and Thompson have  recently sold a valuable claim in  this vicinity to a Seattle corporation for Ihe sum of $90,000, receiving $30,000 down and thc rest in divided payments. Mi. Walter Knapp,  a .mining engineer of Seattle, has  charge of the work at present. , Regarding our claim, wc do not yet  know what it will amount to.

We ship the product to China,  where it commands a very good  price, Abeloni being considered a  very nice dish amongst the Chinese.  In some places, California, for instance, thc Abeloni shell is valuable  for making fancy burrons, ornaments  etc., but the British Columbia shells  are too small and thin for such  work, However, the meat is just  as good, and that is what we arc  after."  Asked if there was any truth in  the report that the property owned  by his company had been bonded for-  $150,000, Mr. Aidano replied there .  was not. If the mine is a paying  proposition, the Japanese company  will operate it themselves, and if it  is not,  they  will be the losers.

He expects to make that, weight  about five days before the fight, and  then by degrees weigh up to the re-  (Jyii-ed 133. Gans says be never felt  better in his life. He has decidedly  the best of it in training quartets,  and is living* quite luxuriously for  Uiis country.  Nelson and Nolan are still undecided iu regard to their training quartets, 'therefore, with the exception  of some light exercise in his rooms  at the Goldfield hotel, Nelson has  done no training work. He stated  that he. is in no hurry to begin. He  is perfectly satisfied with his condition now and only needs a week to  get down to weight for thc figPit. >  Gans said to the Associated Press  representative today:  "You may send it out that I will  'win that fight.

One of tho sons, J. R.  Stewart, is at present Grand Vice-  Chancellor of Iowa. Regarding tbi  unique o\eut the Marshnlltown Re  publican says.  "Tbe case is one of the most interesting- in l,odge history in tbe United  States.     The eleven   sons   will     not  only   fill nil the   chairs during initio,  tion,  but they will 'also perform    all  of tbe rank work, and,    in fact, con  duct   the ceremonies   from  slai't     t  finish-,   Probably such    an    occurron  ce has   i*cver before occurred iulodg'  circles    hi  the    entire  country.   Tha  Father   Stewart will  got   'the  worth  of his money" is   not to be doubted,  tt  is probable that   the eleven   sons  have waited -years   to 'got even' with  the  old gentleman because  of     som  of the   parental restrictions   impose  in the years agone   and this will   afford' an opportunity."   .���������o   THE WAR ON GERMS.  It is the day of big things, but  biggest is the disco very, of importance in the little things. Some centuries ago men made large accounts  of visible danger, and if they could  not see tigers they imagined dragons. Now we know that it is neither the tiger nor tlie dragon that  works the most destiuction, but tbo  insect pest andi tbe invisible.germ it  carries. The tiger is tbe most dread  ed of the cat tribe, yet we aro  taught that the cat of our hack  fence,- which has been nosing anions  the germs of .the sidewalk, where  consumptive or other sick people  have left the record of their passing  may slay its dozens where thc tigei  ���������may slay one. We hunt the tigei  with brass bands and self-applause,  posing before the camera when we  have slain him, with hand'on chest,  and labeled with heroism; but wen re  only half conscious of the greatei  bravery and usefulness of the men ol  science who track the microbe to its  lair, defying' death in subtle qonns  for the common good.��������� Brooklyn  Eagle.  DR. BILLROTH'S JOKE.  The eminent  Viennese surgeon Theodore Billroth, began one of his let-  tures by telling his students   that   a  doctor needed, above all things,  two  gifls; he must he free from all    tlis-  posilion toward nausea,  and he must  be n   good observer.      "I want   you  to chow me right away," he added,  "Whether    you    can meet these   demands."    He then poured a nauseous  fluid into a glass, dipped ino of   his  fingers    into     it  and      licked   it oG,  whereupon, he invited thc students to  follow his example.     Without flinci-  ing they did so.    With a   broad grin  the surgeon looked at them and said:  "You have stood tbe first tet't briK  liantly.    Not so the second, for none  of you  observed that I  dipped    my  first'finger into the glass but   'icked  the second!"���������New York Post.

This year the fires were confined to  an urea between Bhawnigan and  Coldstream, and the biggest was a-  rouiid the Summit, but thc damage  done this year wns slight, compared  with that of last',year.
