The boating   party    consisted    of  .the Misses McMillan and Miss   Parrott, Messrs. Ingham,  Morgan     and  Hughes.     They had spent-a pleasant,  ,evening on the inlet,  and  were -  i c-  turning    h-ame    about     ten o'clock.  When they nearcd thc Transfer wharf  Miss Parrott stood up in thc   boat,  and was  warned by her companions  that she should    keep still, as     she  ���������  might upset the craft.  ' One of    the  . girls invited her to take a   seat bedside her,   which,  with apparent     reluctance,  she finally did. -  However,  Mr. Leonard liighaun, who had his  coat oh and was working at the  oars at thc ,, time, immediately  sprang overl/jard    and soon reached  the struggling girl. By this tune  great conrusiou prevailed iu the^ioat  and in the excitement somebody  took the oars "and started for shore  -or more help, leaving the rescuer  and the gurl in the water. 'lhe  .snouts oi Mr. Ingham to come buck  with the boat, however, had the de-  siied ellect, arid the two were pielt-  crLup just in .time, as they hadf^ii  struggling in Uio water tor several  minutes.  Upon being .placed in the boat  again the girl was asked why- she  had attempted to diown herself.  She, expressed , herself as very sorry  that she  had not     succeeded,     and  the",temptation,to put an end to her staled that she" would yet accoui-  life was too strong, and after idly Pll*>i| her end.

It appears that thc man' who did  the , staLping, Win." McLaren by  name, is, a simple sort of a fellow,  and it had been the practice of, Albeit Dow, the foreman, to make him,  the subject of all kinds of practical  jokes, many ot jthem approaching the  brutal, especially when it is considered that JvlcLaren is not as well  equipped men tally, as his fellows.  This had been going on Lor some  time and McLaren had brooded over  them until .Thursday morning when  he arose, thc knowledge that perhaps that day was < to pass as the  previous ones had full of humiliation and misery for him, and the  sight of his' tormentor lying ��������� helpless in bed, drove lain to a frenzy  and he threw himself on Dow with  his open pocket knife and before thc  Utter was thoroughly awake had iu-  liicted nine slabs and gashes.

In this race  the contestants were obliged to  jump into thc water with all < their  clothes on, swim one hundred feet,  and rescue a man, bringing him/bjick  to the starting point. Mr. ;Cart-  wrifegil hud his man black in just 411  seconds, and his skill and splendid  swimming were greeted with great  applause by the large/ crowd iu; attendance.  Mr. Cartwright intended to enter  the ' 100-yard championship race also  but was prevented from doing this  owing to,the fact that it was pulled oil immediately after the rescue  race, and he did not have suflicient  time to change his' clothes and reach  the starting point. Pie states, however,    that    judging from the    time  silver'cup, which was'the prize.  The Colonist of yesterday, in  speaking of the relay and 100 yard  races,  says:  "Three teams put in appearance  fro the relay race, and this item  was the finest display of speed in  swimming ever seen in British Columbia. The first beat gave the Y.

He had a rival in ,the per  son of'a young miner who aspired  lo her affections, and several weeks  ago they fought a fistic duel to decide the matter on one of the ir-.uii  streets of the town. The battle  was ended when Hayes got his antagonist's finger between his teeth  whioh are remarkably good  teeth.  The wedding and its'..sequel will  also termina'fce another case -which  has been watched with a great deal  of interest iby the people of this  part of the county. The Stutsman  homestead is one of the fine meii-  dow farms on thc west fork of the  Salmon river, and valuable. It was  taken up by Henry Stutsman, the  then husMand of Mrs. Hayes, some  five years ago. Henry Stutsman  went away, wljiaivdoning the farm  and his wife, and she began a contest for -the,homo. She alleged,  that Stutsman hnd already securer!  two homesteads from the government by fraud, and this was his  third attempt to secure free land.  The contest was decided last week,  hy the Watervillc land, office, ag-ainst  Mrs. Stutsman.

He did not  wait for the mail, hut mounted a  horse and made the journey to Watervillc 'by relay riding. He beat  the mail by half a day and his tapers were, in the land office while his  mother-in-law's were in Uocle Sam's  sack many miles away.  The land offite rejected both filings.

At intervals of six months, two  ton samples from each storage h: ve  been taken out and carefully tvrn-  ed, and the results from the cspi*. .-  ments have shown conclusively that  by sub'imarine storage of coal its co- ,  lorific value steadily increases, whilo  bly storage in open aid a decided  decrease is shown.���������Mining Record.
