The story was - told after tbe old man had recovered considerably from the effects of his sufferings.  Mr. Cochrane is, a typical prospector of sixty-five years of age,' says  the-Free Press, and he told a thirll-  ing story bordering on' the incredible  of an unknown gold mine he had discovered in the heart of the Flathead,  and of the terrible privations he had  undergone: =.,.-<,?      - ���������  "I  left .Spokane  four  weeks ago,"  said Mr.  Cochrane in part,  "for t|ic  Flathead,     to prospect certain coal  and oil claims held     by  a Spokane  syndicate. -     With me was an expert  who went in to examine tbe seams  We took possession of a vacant shacii  near our claims,  21 miles south    of  Crow's  Nest,  and a mile down     the  Flathead river from tbe junction   of  the Crow's Nest trail '.with the river.

A few days  after  he left ane to the Flathead country.   Some time  I discovered near our cabin an  old  blaze mark on a tree.

Alfred     Taylor,  of Victoria,,   was  the recipient last .week of Canadian  and Spanish patents  on  an improved  push-button  fire alarm,. patents     on  which     'are pending .in several  other  countries.   This .device .is designed to  service/such as is in common use in  combine  in an ordinary electric call  hotels'"and   public  buildings  the advantage of a fire alarm, system.

The  chamber   is;interposed between  the push-button' and   the  terminals  of the electric 'circuit so that  while   under   ordinary   circumstances  the push butt-en may be used to   establish    contact and ring an  alarm  the same function is performed in the  event of fire by  the expansion under  the incroased temperature' of> the volatile material-within the chamber.

It  was expected that  this would      be  done     several days ago,  but unforeseen- delays prevented.   The furnaces  arc  now  using  up from  2,400 to 3,-  Q-0fj.'.v-tons  of      ore per day,  taking  somewhat more thou usual,  because  the two   new. and  larger  blast    furnaces are smelting -about 500 tons1 or  ore per   day each.   This  will   likely  be  reduced a Lttie after they    have  been used  for some time-  As a consequence of the increased  tonnage at the smelter both' the C.  P. R. and Great Northern arc now  taking out increased quotas or ore,  the regtii al oatput from the samp being greater than ever before in the  history of the place. The'mine force  also has. been' somewhat increased  gradually.  ���������  BASKETBALL-,  "'  ON THURSDAY  If satisfactory arrangements can be  made with the manager of the opera  house the  basketball match  between  the .

The ,   Ashcroft Journal of the 21st,  says of the sale: -  ��������� ���������In announcing the close of the  deal, pending for some- months, between the Consolidated Cariboo Hydraulic Mining Coidpamy and New  York capitalists, the-Journal joins  with the people of Cariboo in expressing its pleasure at the good  news, The property is sold to tho  Messrs. Giifrjjenheim,. John Hays  Ilummoiwl and .ethers who have a  world ,wide reputation in mining busi  ness. 'Ihe consideration is about one  million  dollars.  "The 17-mile ditch to Cariboo lake,  costing $500,000, whereby 5,000 miners' inches of water will be brought  to the mine is now assured." This  will give the mine from 7,500 to  10,000 inches, including that'brought  in by th2 old system. Work on the  new" ditch will be commenced probably in January.  "What this means to the prosperity of Ashcroft and the farmers and  business places along the Cariboo  road is fully appreciated, because of  the last few ycars of restricted production at the big mine, consentient  of insufficient water "supply. '  -  "The successful termination of the  deal is a tribute to Mr. J. B. Hob-  son's skill and general efficient manner in which he has carried on the  business of the' property. He will  shortly return to Bullion from New  York an,d make finafl arrgngements  for work on the new,ditch." ,  The principal stock-holders in the  old company were originally C. P.R.  men. The deal means also the opening up-of other great properties' in  Cariboo.  It is understood that the putting'in  of the big canal  for  augmenting the  water "supply is  a condition 0f  , the  deal.    The  hyclrcgraphic surveys  for  this w0rk ha*e all been carried out  under the supervision" of'rJ.  B.-IIob-~  son,   the  general   manager of      the  company.   The actual cost of      t|ie  work is put at $-190,000 for ,a system  having  a capacity  of delivering 5,000  miner's inches of  water.  The work has  previously  been described  in   The Ledger-   It will be by  far  the greatest j undertaking  of     its  kind over     attempted in the province.  The  cost   of transportation   of     the  heavy material  from the railway to  tho property will amount tn a vast  sum,  which -vy'l'  be disributed among?  IJic residents of  the district.  With this water supply it, is expect  ed that the season will be materially lengthened.

Winnipeg,  Man.,   Ocw.   21.���������f'aJiule  Frederic Remy, who was arrested at  Vancouver last Monday charged with  (the,murder of W. J.  Oliver,   in Montana, on September 23, was employed  during the summer by the firm      of  Mackenzie &' Mann  of Winnipeg,     in  bridge-ibiiilding at BattIeioi|fi.  While  in    the.    employ of the contracting  firm'..Remy  went   under  the name of  Remy  Camile,  and  just  before     he  left his job he defrauded the  Bank of  Hamilton   branch  at  Battleford   out  of about $300 by forging the  names  of foremen to time .checks which were  cashed at the bank.  Remy,  alias Camile,  is supposed to  have  arrived  in Winnipeg from  Montana      in   June,  and  obtained  a job  with Macl.en7.ie & Mann shortly after  his arrival   here, going to Battleford  to    work   on     bridge   constructf.ion,  where     he     was employed for two  months-  The Ban'c of Hamilton branch   at  Battleford  cashes the .Mackenzie   &  Mann time  check's at that point, and  Remy succeeded in forging the names  of Graham and Wallace,  two  of the  firms   foremen  at   Battleford  at that  time.    The  forgeries  were perpetrated in August, and Camile immediately left  the "service  of  the firm.    At  the Winnipeg oifice of the Babk    of  Hamilton; the manner ��������� in ' which  Camile hadf_got aAvay  with the   -$.300  was/discovered shortly  after he had  given'up. his job  with Mackenzie   &  Mann.  Detectives  were  at  once  employed  en the case, and they traced Camile  as far     as Warman  Junction,  where  all   trace  of him  was  lost.   u  THEY'RE WAITING FOR  "GENTLEMAN JOE"  He Left Eight Months Ago  For  the Land of the Jappy Jap  Tappy  Perhaps He has Married a  Ciei'  sha and Set Up a Shop With  Ladysmith Capital  A number of gentlemen residents of  Ladysmith are frequently heard- to  usk the following questions: "Have*  jou heard fiom Joe���������?" "Think  we shall ever see our money again?''  and "was that patented soldier's  outfit a fraud?"  Just      a year     ago  a gentlemanly  young   man  with an  undeniable flavor of the  army about  him,   began to  entertain his fellow employees  with  stories   of   an invention  of a friend' of  his who lived back  East.    It was a  soldier's  outfit, including a bandelicr,  capable of holding something       like  five  tin.es   as many   shells  as1    any  similar concern now in use in  any of  the armies   of the  world,   and  a water bottle     which was so arranged  that water of the filthiest kind could  be put     in it and when poured out,  was perfectly pure,  it having passed  through     a filter, the like of which  had never been invented by any other genius.    He gave such  glowing descriptions      of     the outfit that his  FIRE  DOES $50,000 DAMAGE AT  CARIBOU.

A serious fije at -Caribou, on     the  line of the White Pass  & Yukon Rail  Ray,     sixty-seven miles from Skag'-  way,      destroyed  tho    Upper Yul.cn  Consolidated   Company's   sawmill, located  at  that place,   along  >vith several   other   buildings,   including    the  White ,Pass  engine house,  last  Saturday, according to news brought by  the Princess May.   The loss is cstr  mated at about   ?50,000,  but coming  just at this time of the. roar,      the  blow is considered more    nrious     at  that   thriving little  town.  The fire broke out about-noon, and  for a time the entire town was threa  tened. Everybody joined.in .the fight  against the flames, and an fought as  furiously as any fire-fighters over did  until the blaze was under control. It  is not kinown how the fire Kiginatcd  The burned sawmill was built and  operated Tor some time by Mike  Kjtiig, a well known pioneer. He anil  Mr. Harry A. Ella, of Victoria, and  Mr. Harry A. Mimn, were the principal owners. The. last-named is the  present manager of the owning company. iThe mill s capacity was about  25,000 or 30,000 feet of lumber per  day.  The  loss   to  Caribou   and   Vicinity  will be felt keenly  as quite-a number  of hands were employed in  and about  the mill.   Much work  was on   hand  just  at  this  time,   owing   to the activity   there and  about   Conrad   City  caused     by  the rush  to the   Windy  Arm' country, of which Caribou.- -is the  connecting railway point.   The development   of  the several      groups-     of  claims in  that country now shipping-  ore  and  the buiiuing  of several tramways has  given plenty   of work       to  the  mill,    it w.ll not be known for  a little   while   whether  or  not      they  will rebuild, but  it   is fully expected  another'plant  will   be   put  in. bltforo  spring.   There was little insurance, on  the   property.  ���������riends     became     greatly interested.  Among the various stories he had to  tell ofthe  affair,  was one to  the effect     that his friend, the inventor,  l.adofiered   to sell  it lo  the British  government  during  the     Boer  war,  but as tbe war office had bought another patent (which even the officials  who  saw  the one of which  we are  now  speaking   admitted   to  be inferior to  the   Canadian  patent,   '   and,  which       Joe   declared  was   a fraud?',  they  would not give the price    de.  manded.      The  outfit,   consequently,  found ils wav back to Canada     and  lav jealously guarded in  the  strong  box or the inventor, until the Russo-  Japanese  war broke out.    The stories of how the Japanese were always  willing      lo      Pay fabulous sums of  monev" for anything  that  would    Improve their army caused Joe's friend  to entertain   the  idea that  the government   of  the  far  eastern country  would be induced to purchase the out  fit in question.   Joe said  he believed  they.would,   anVl  his friends  invar*-  bly agreed with him,  and frequently  expressed the wish lo isce the Marvellous patent.  These stories were frequently refold, until, one day shortly after the  last'    Christmas,   Joe mysteriously  told his  friends that tho outfit had  arrived.    His      friend,  the  inventor  was badly in need of monev an* na'd  ?ent      him the     precious patent oui  to sell  to the Japanese jrorernment  if thev  would buv  it-   -Toe ^ld   ms  friends that as soon as he could raise  the necessarv  f-nds bP intendpd     to  take     the affair to  the Orient a.nd  himself, approach the war office officials, and,  * ppce������sarv, ram an au-  riinnce with tbe Mikado himself and  offer the patented /outfit for sale. He  was confident that   at least, $40,000  could be procured from the Jans for  the patent.  Quite  anumher   of   LNvsm* reo-,  ���������le saw the outfit and^11 who were  thus' honored admitted it to be    an  ingenious   contrivance.  A month passed and, according to  the tale of Joe, he was unable to procure the monev to dtlray the exneni  ses ol the trip himself, "-and  after   a  time he proposed the formation ol  a  ioint     stock  company.   H* wanted  about     $000,  and his friends fell   n  with the idea,  and $25 shares     were  forthwith   on  the  market.-    Strange,  as  it mav seem, they went like wildfire, some buying half ado^en shares  Thus about $600 was raised.   The arrangement was that half of what the '  patent was sold  for should be given"  to     the inventor and the other half * ,  was to be divided between the stock- "  holders and Joe, the former to take'  two-thirds of toenail   and Joe    the  other third for his trouble. -  So Joe, with his $600, or thereabouts, left Ladysmith carrying w:th  him the good wishes of the company.

The article published yesterday  ind'eates that there will be no unsightly scramble for'the honor of serving the city gratuitously as alderman or chief magistrate of. the city  next year. Rather, there seems to  he an inclination on the .part of those  who have s-ervert on the Council to  make way ior others, for it has not  been found ^y the present members to  be   easy to please everybody.  The     flavor      and   Council  for'the  present year  have  done their best for  the city.     at any     rate as  -they.thc  Council.saw it.     it has not been easy  to build    ronds and sidewalks,  put m  sewers, and provide m ail  respects for  the city's     wan Is.  for bricks   cannoi  be made of     straw, and  it is impossible to greatly improve 'the city streets  anil     sewerage without      money,   and  plenty of it-        ^ is ,K)L rlSnt to 'cx'  pect too     much and  Ihe  people have  expected to get     along faster than it  has been   possible  lo go  with  available, funds.      Such  being the case and  the facts not   having been  recognized  by a class of the people who talk unthinkingly,  it is  not  strange that  the  present     'Mayor  and "most if not an  the present board of aldermen feel like  stepping     down and out     and letting  their critics       hold      possession     for  a   while.       In any city an official  is  subject   to and      receives   a fun aiiott-  ment or     criticism,   b"t for     a small  place where there is     so  little in  the.  way of     available funds for civic  improvements     and so little chance for  the city     officials to.'do-whatmthcy no  doubt   would be glad  to do, namely,  push     public improvements,     they receive     more than is     due them sometimes in the way of criticism, and yet  they     regularly devote one evening- in  the     week,  and  often other  tunc,  to  the cities'     affairs and ha\c   one anil  ail tried    their     best to. improve and  push  the interests   of   the   city ahead.  It is quite possible   that a new board  of     aiderincn     may be elected with a  , new man at their head as Mayor who  win   be   able  'to accomplish more for  the city than the present council has  for the     voters may  decide that they  will  consent      to   civic improvements  such  as a  local  improvement  by-law.  They may     decide to. support an electric light by-law and may  even consent  toor counsel  a little   increase in  taxation     in order   to.    improve -the  city.    If the city will consent to these  things and will give a council reasonable encouragement   we need not   fear  Ior ihe .city's future, and whether the  present  members   of   the council again  consent  to sen c the  public or whether new men    arc elected to the board  everything   will    steadily   if     slowly,  move along,  for Ladysmith is certain  to be a town of importance so long as  coal   is     m.ned  on Vancouver Island,  and that will be about as long as the  majority of us will   keep very close tali  on earthly conditions.  _mmw_______mm  A  SIGNIFICANT  JRADf MARK     |  Tl������lf'  ^<fint<tt������ ^.r111111 WWYVW 'rk-  ^ VALUES f  Five  pieces Gray Flannel, m Twill or Plain���������light or dark shades.   2������*  unshrinkable.

The ���������droves of wild .noises,  or ponies, . and herds of seals  appear to be  the   chief  mammapan   inhabitant������ of  the island.   It  is generally supposed  that  the origpal' stock  was  landed  in  the    sixteenth  century,  although  some writers make the1 introduction  much later.  Twenty-five  years   ago  the  number  of ponies   was estimated  at 500;     at  the present day  there aro less than  200, divided   into   five troops.

Their Lonely,  lirenry   jLIfe Tends   to  Drive Tin;ui Cruy.y,  Do you realize what it means tc  watch 5,000 sheep alone in the desert?  You have read weird, grewsome stories  of the horror of the solitary lighthouse  keeper's life, but compared to tbe days  of tbe Mexican shepherd those of the  average keeper of the light are filled  with gayety and noise. Even with  their one or two dogs tbe shepherds  often go insane, and were it not for tbe  company of their shaggy collies the  iunacy among tbem vvould rise to an  almost incredible percentage, if we are  to believe those who have followed tbe  sneep in' tbe desert, and therefore may  be supposed to know.  Once in old Santa Fe, N. M., I met a  man who for twelve years had followed the sheep.  His work was done. All  day long he sat in a chair in tbe rear  of a' little ,dobe store, crouched over,  gibbering to himself, bleating���������an idiot.  He still saw bis sheep swaying like a  great   white   wave   among  the   sagebrush, and ever hi bis ears sounded the  killing monotone of their bleats.   One  boy,   though   fifteen  years   of  age,   is  mentally no further advanced thanf.be  average child of five.   His father 1s a  shepherd, bis mother died when b������ was  four years old, and his father took him  out upon tbe range.   All his iife ha?  been spent among tbe sheep. Do is one  with them today.  How is it possible, then, you ask, that  men are to be fouud willing to watch  them? It is very easy. Sheep herding  is a lazy job at best, and tbe "greaser"  Is the laziest creature on earth. For $20  n month lie is willing to sit in the sand  and listen to the never ending bleating  until the little mind be has gives way  ���������U'd they fetch him in .from the range  insane. He is glad to take the chance  for $20 a mouth.  The greaser is not the only shepherd  in the west. On the vast ranges of Nevada and Wyoming you may run across  an occasional college man tending the  sheep. Once, indeed, a college professor,  ill of consumption, undertook to follow  5,000 bleaters for the summer.  In autumn they found him insane, on his  bands   and   knees - among  the' sheep,  bleating with them.   Day after day bis  eyes behoJd only a brilliant turquoise  ���������ley, in which hangs a sun of brass; an  ocean sweep of sage flecked sand and  a  slow/y   moving,   compact   mass   of  ���������beep. His ears hear no sound save the  iteady "Baa, baa!" day and night, affecting him as tbe Chinese criminal of  ancient days was affected by the regular tap, tap of a bidden drum.  And yet so loug as tbe desert contln-  'ujs to provide food for the "bleaters"  eo long will shepherds go mad among  the flocks, and for ten years the desert's  greatest value to man has been the  food it has offered the sheep, nor yet is  the store depleted.���������Pilgrim.

Here are the three deadly symptoms  of old age: Selfishness, stagnation, in^  tolerance.'  If we find tbem in ourselves we may  know we are growing old, even if we  are on the merry side of thirty.   But,  happily, we have three defenses, which j  are invulnerable.

There is no denying the fact that  when you have a toothache yourself it  is hard to have to consider other people's aches.   But it can be done, though  it generally involves physical effort, for  we must bestir ourselves and act. The  mere feeling *>t sympathy expressed by  action is a poor, useless thing, but the  soul, determined not to grow old, can  force the body to such physical effort  tbougb there is no denying that it ia  hard work.

Until a dentist can be consulted  and the exact cause of the disturbance  located and professionally treated it is  an excellent thing to moisten tho finger  and, after dipping it into some bicarbonate of soda, rub it on the gum round  tbe sore tooth.   It is also a-relief to  mix a teaspoonful of this bicarbonate  of soda in half a glass of warm water  and rinse tbe moutt with some every  little   while,   holding  .a  little   in  the  mouth for a  few  seconds , so that it  penetrates all the crevices.   The soda, *  being an alkali, serves to neutralize the  acids in the mouth, which are often the.  cause of toothache. !  Any  ?s there any such thing as milking  machines in this country?
