Hndley was' fifty-three years old and  had for several days been complaining of heart trouble, but refused to  leave the woods and seek medical assistance, ' noM'Imnlanlly remarking  thai if death was; to be, his portion  he couldshuflleo HIT without the aid of/  a pbysiciab.  Tbe! trail of the lake is narrow and,  traverses some very rugged .country.  A pack pony can be led over it only  Avith g-real difficulty. Late Friday  afternoon the dead boil\T was lashed  to a horse, and the journey lo Hamilton begun. Night eame on and  tbe homesteaders crept patiently  through thc dense foi est, the feeble  glimmer of a lantern serving as their;  only ligiht. Not until long' past midnight did Uie weary party finally  arrive here.  While the boily oi tbe dead homesteader was being prepared for burial a messenger -arrived with the  news that -Archie Kupe, thc 8-yeat-  oldson of Mr. and Mrs. John Jlupe,,  ou whose claim Ha-dley had died,  bad fallen from a raft into the lake  and drowned.

Tomorrow evening a special meeting of the Ladysmith Board of Trade  will be held for the purpose of considering letters which have been received from Ralph Smith, M.P., regarding his recent visit to Vancouver, a-nd the work accomplished there  with , the C.P.It. officials in connection with the freight rates toLady-  smitb.  As was reported in The Ledger recently, Mr. Smith iu an interview,  stated that he had received a promise fromi M-r. B. W. Greer, , general  freight agent of the O.P.R., assuring  al of the business men on the question. Amongst others were the firms  of Messrs. Blair & Adam, Messrs.  Simon Leiser & Co., W. E. Morrison and Messrs. Wallers & Aken-  head.  While all of these linns were very  emphatic in their opinion that the  rates should be adjusted to a more  reasonable scale, -still, tbey did not  think, in view of the fact that Mr.  (Ireer of the I'.P.R., had promised  to investigate the matter thoroughly  that it would, be necessary to have a  silting of, tbe commission. The merchants were of- the opinion that now  Mr. Smith that the -question of-that the attention of the C.P.R. has  freight rates to Ladysmith would be been brought to the fact that Lady-  given    due    consideration, and     Mr. j smith  is paying excessive rates,  the  Greer will write the board relating  the decision reached at as early a  dale as possible. , Mr. Smith also  stated to the Ledger lhat, providing  it was tbe wish of the Board of  Trade, he would undertake to have  a sitting of -the Railway Commissioners held in Ladysmith in order  that some settlement of the matter  might be arrived at.  In view of the fact that the question has revolved itself into one of  whether or not the merchants of the  city wish the coirijmissioii to sit -here'.

They believe that  upon the.proper officials ascertaining  the large amount of freight'which is  received here, and comparing ��������� -same  .with that received at other points  which are already enjoying terminal  rates, they will be quite willing to  make concessions for this city. In  any event, the merchants .interviewed favored doing nothing further in  thc matter until such' time as the.

Until the coming into prominence
of the Cobalt legion,.-"prospector"
was a term little known in Canada,
at least in Ontario, wiites 11R.IL,
in the Mail and Elliptic. Now, how-
evei, tbe name "piospectoi" is claim
ed by nearly nine out of ten of the
people one meets up heic iu this

The claims in the town.,',,,) (Jf c0le
man, in which cobalt Is situated, air
limited to 20 acres each, and the des
cnplions of tbe different portions ot
the lots are considerably complicated by having to describe iheni in di
vidod parts, such as tbo\N.-i-j
the southwest quarter of the
half of  such a  lot.
Many of lhe same claims arc staked three limes over, and fiom s.u.:i,
complications it would seem thai an
up-to-date prospector would soon
have to add both a surveyor and a
lawyer to his outfit.
After his claim is properly located
and staked the prospector lias; to
direct his steps without delay for
the office of the mining recorder, this
ifliee for the Temiscaming mining
division being situated at Haileyjbuiy
Here he has to prepare a plan and
make art affidavit of the location and
the time of discovery even to the
very hour, and for a fee of twenty-
five cents the application is then registered.
It has still to await inspection by
the mining division inspector, who
will determine > whether or not it
shall be passed as a mining claim,
and unless there has been a genuine
find of "valuable mineral in place"
where tbe discovery post was planted, the location will again, bo thrown
open. Should the claim he passed
thc prospector secures an assay and
a Certificate of the  same.

A balloon railway is'now running
up tho mountains at Salzburg, Aus-
tiia. It consists of a largo captive balloon attached to a single
steel rail-way, winch in turn is hxoil
firmly io" tho side of a steep mountain, whose precipitous slopes no oth
cr loriu of railway could climb without making ' a series of serpentine
detours ana passing through tho
tunnels- The balloon remains balanc
ed in the air about ten yards above
tho rail lo which il is attachod by a
stout wire cable, aridy it is moved up
and down thc side of the mountain
at the will of the engineer. For '&q
ascent the balloon itself furnishes
-the lifting force by means of hydrogen; for tho descent ,a large reservoir
attached to the balloon is filled with
water at the highest station, and selves as ballast. I'ucler the balloon
is a circalar car, seating ten persons. The -wire cable passes through
the floor of the car to a speed rog
libit or beneath, which is controllod
by the engineer. The inventor. Her
Balderauer of Salzburg, claims that
thc balloon, railway will replace the
funicular  lailwa.v  in   the future.

Kighteen     months  ago iron crates   containing coal were  sunk  in   a    big   basin   in  the     dock  yards   at Portsmouth.     At the sam,?,  time   the   same    quantity     of     coal  carefully was stored in the  open air  at   a   coaling point and sheltered by  tarpaulins.      At   intervals      of     siy  months      two samples  of each storage   hove  been   taken,   and   carefully  buimed. .   The results have shown con  clusively   that by the submarine stor  age   of coal its calorific value steadily increases,   while   by  storage     in  the open   air   a   decided   decrease is  shown.     At naval    stations  in     tho  Iropics   the   decrease   in   calorific     is  great,   the heat   of  the  sun  extracting   the light   volatiilo oils.  The admiralty is   satisfied   with the   physi-  cial    and    financial    advantages     of  submarine   storage,  and has now  dir  ected   that   experiments be ma.de to  ascertain    its   practicability    on     a.  larger scale.
