For further particu--  lars address Roger.PMcock, 0 Adam  SI.,   London,  Eng. "  Roger Poccck is -well Known in this  pi'oiince,   having     engineered  seseral  unsuccessful expeditions.    He  was  in  charge  of  the   party   who   left    Ash-  crolt. ovei land to Klondike,   with  the  uiifoituiiatc  \oung  English   loid   wh|l'  wandered    from*    camp to camp near  L'uesnel, aftci  sulYering hardships anitl  privations,  no   trace  of him  ever being  found     Pococu  has also  wntten  a iiuiiibci- of short stories of his advent ures in the north.'  Sir Arthur .Curtis  is the  ni|an  who  ! was lost  after a    ser- es  of  disagreements    with  other     members of the  paity.   The course of     Roger     Po-  ' cock,  according     to those whoi knew  i Irini well at tlie     time was far from  heroic.  whom he cannot supply. As  the frees .employment bineau is the  agency tluivgh which inoie!employment is found than from any othei  or all the agencies put together, it  must be recognized that theie is a  serious shortage of labor, partTcu-  laily of unskilled laboi.  This is a far moie healthy stale of  iftairs than if theie weie a lite number of laborers    wailing for employ,  uient and no prospect  of employment  rhead  of them..    There  may  be some  iico.iveiiience caused by a shortage of  "<abor,     and    work may     be delay oil  somewhat on     account of it,-but no  me will sulfer materially from  it.  At the    same time it   is an extra-  rdinary     cl'iidifion of afiaiis to 'ex's t in a city.    which has added  fully  0,000 people to its population with-  ii   five years, and which is now  reviving and  assimilating new coiners  l-t the rate of 2,000 a month.

This passenger is the  sole survivor of that voyage across  the Atlantic, which was made over  200  years  ago.  William,    Penn  hail ajittle daughter namc-d'     Letitia-:    Let'itia   heard  her     father  tell     wonderful tales of  what he  saw an-d   heard   in   Pennsyl-  v-aliia on     hi.s first visit to .tlie country,  thousands'of  miles distant from  Let-ilia's   home.    He  often  told    her  abjout little Miss RniikinL who, liT-ing  as  she  did   in   the  wilderness '    of  Pennsylvania,     had  no  toys  at all,  not en-en  one  rag  doll.    When   Let-ilia's   father   was   getting   ready     to  again  cross   the "ocean   to   America,  his  little girl  insisted upon sending  a doll   to  that, lonesome  little  girl.  So  a doll  was, .dressed  in court costume of striped  and  delicately  tint,  ed     brocade" and  velvet.   The skirt  was   .held   out   by   enormous   hoops,  for isuch was  the  fashion of .the.well.-  dressed ladies  of   that  period.     The  doll   itself  is 2(1   inches high and  has  thc  long waist and slender  form  of  the court beauties she left in her. native land.    Her  hair  is  rolled   back  from her  face,  much in  thc style of  today.    This  doll   now  lives' in Mont  goniery comity,  Maryland,  in       the  strictest  seclusion.    She   is  only   removed   from   her   careful   wrappings  when little girls  desire the honor of  mining and smell-   making  the'acquaintance -of the  old-  lone and that wilh go./n t-esulls. ing    centre as    well as the greatest   est doll  in  America���������Holiday  Maga-  I Tho    Ledger hopes* soon to be alileccial camp on the Pacific Coast. zine.  13AGK OF LADYSMITH  ARE MINES OF VALUE  ft ?*  |.Wa|iter   Jones-arrived  home Sunday  yen-in-g from, a three weeks'  prospec-  to give a sqmewliat extionclwl account  of the. camp which now promises well  for a milling camp of gi\cat extent,  and if values are found, as now  STcms probable, with development, at  a ileplh to com'para favoral).I.\' with  tin whicli ;vo work ex- surface show ngs, il. will make La-  has been j'b smith a tpiart/.  ng  trip      Wlilie  mountains  back of  le city.

A good -program  containing many nowl items is being  prepared, and 'theie is no doubt the  enteilainpicnt will lie a success.  The footballers feel j ustified' in  making a strong appeal lo the public  for suppo.t, ami -there is very little  doubt that both events w 11 be well  patronized. All who are interested'  in sport want to\see the local boys  CGme home from Portland the champion footballers of thc coast.
