In addition to the  ordinary daily work, the task of  grading the -Great .Northern copper  spur is   being  rushed.  This spur is about thrce-cjuarters of  n mile Hi length, starting about half a  mile     north  of  the Granby  smelter,  running south,  thence paralleling the  main  line until  lit reaches  a tangent  point     at the southern extremity of  the smelter     close  to  the high-level  line,     whence it describes a complete  semi-circle around  the smelter oni    a  fwciiby-five    degree curve, paralleling  itself in adislancc-of four hundred and  sixty  foot.  This spur is built for the purpose of  providing for the loading of cars     of  of the buster copper.   This copper is  made  in  large cakes,   each  weighing  about     three hundred pounds, which  are loaded on the cars, three hundred cakes being in each car for ship-,  mentcast.  Superintendent    Hodges,  in.an interview,   said: '" At! present  we have  seven furnaces  running.   I expect" to  blow in the eigth in ��������� a few days.     B  the river keeps up as it .is at- present  we will  be able to run an eight    furnaces   continuously  until" the   West  Kootenay   1'ower  & Light  Company  has its  power line completed to the  smelter,  which will be; in about throe  months"  timCi.     ~  "Since the Norttiport smelter has  closed down we have treated considerable more custom ore. as many of  the Northport smelter's contracts^  have been taken over by the Granby.  Among the latest shipping mines to  the Granby smelter are the Copper-  King, near Chewciah, Wash., and. the  First Thought, near Orient.

Vancouver     Socialists  are openly  luighmg tit the police and  immensely enjoying the joke of Mr    Arthur  lAIouow Lewis,  Socialist orator, who  ���������was last  week fined ?5  and costs for  obstructing the streets, evading payment of the fine and   umping out of  town before  he could be  put in jail  foL ten days in lieu of payment, says  the Vancouver  Province  On the understanding that the case  was  to  be appealed  from  the decision     of Police Magistrate Williams,  Mi.  Lewis  was  allowed  his liberty,  and apparently the police omitted to  insure  payment  of  the fine in     case  Mr.  Lewis left town.  On Sunday..-it-was given out, bv  the Socialists publicly that Mr. Lewis intended to leave town yesterday  mor|iii;rig. Last night, shortly after  midnight' a,policeman appeared at  the room of 'fte'Spcialist speaker in  the, Masonic block and served him  with notice that he must either pay  the fine or go to jail for ten days.  "Lewis  just  laughed and  said     he  would not par the fine,"  said  a prominent   Siocialist  today,  in  relating  manner  in   which  tihe fine or imprisonment  has been evaded.   Today Mr.  Lewis  left the city.  Winnipeg, Oct. 19 ���������So alarming has  ihe typhoul   epidemic in Winnipeg become that Premiei    Robhn re^tst-d  Dr. R.  M.

Tli* Rata That la Wroavht by Cave*  - !��������������������������� Handlist-,  I have sold guns for ten years, anA  In that time "four of them have had  their barrels bulged, one by enow, one  by dirt, one by sand and one by something else getting into, it One man  crawling through a fence got a little  snow in the muzzle. He could not remove it with bis finger, so concluded  to wait and shoot it out, which he did,  but he found a bulge like a pullet's egg  en the'end ot the barrel. Another got  Borne earth in the muzzle and shot it  out, and he, too, found the same kind  of a bulge on the end of bis gun. Another fired his gun at ducks, which  knocked him over on his back and fairly got away from him. When he picked up the gun be found a narrow raised  band around the barrel fourteen Inches  from the muzzle. In this case a wad  had probably lodged there. This customer thinks tbe manufacturers ought  to give him a new set of barrels. I tell  him If tbe. barrels bad not been good  ones it would bave been a burst in-'  stead' of a bulge, which might have  maimed or killed him. Another man ly* j j  lug on a point brought down a duck with  a broken wiug which scurried for the  water. The man ran and struck the  duck, with the muzzle of ihe gun and  in sckdoiog got sand In It He blew'  most of it out and shot out tbe rest of  it. Well, after that shot be found a  little blister two inches from the TOUS-  eie about the size of a man's little finger.  Moral.���������Do hot shoot obstructions ot  any kind out of your gun if you value  your life or gun.���������Uncle Dan in Ama-  tfur Snortamaa.  A Kerr HooaeTelt AneeAot*. -  A personal sketch of Governor La  Toilette contributed to Harper's Weekly by Earle Hooker Eaton contains ���������  new and entertaining anecdote of President Roosevelt which Mr. Eaton  quotes In the president's own words.  Mr. Roosevelt, It seems, was present  at a reception attended by Governor  and Mrs. La Follette. The president  and Mrs. La Follette were standing in  one corner engaged in conversation  and eating ice cream. He was doing  the bulk of the talking, and she was  an attentive and unwavering listener.  "Suddenly I discovered," says the  president, "that for at least five mln-  utes I had been pouring- lee cream  down the front of her handsome evening gown. She had known It all the  time, but had not indicated It by even  the quiver of an eyelash or by the  slightest change to the smiling, Inter*  ested expression upon her face. Sh������  bad simply been too polite to inter-  I rapt mo by word or look or move, M  matter what happened to the gown."*"  Woollen  Goods  We Carry.-A Large 'Assortment Of |  these goods and offer attarctive   selections in all the different lines���������  WOOLLEN UNDERWEAR  WOOLLEN BLANKETS  EIDER DOWN QUILTS  FUR LINED GLOVES  HOSIERY  :<A,  1 T^  ������x-:  5   We   Want You to Cair And  amine    the QUALITY and   PRICE  of these articles  I  SIMON LEISER & CO Ltd.
