The meeting of the hoard of trade  on   Tuesday   evening   was well at-  ''tended. ..;President" DeCew occupied  the chair.  A com in union lion  from   G. A. S.

F.  Tolmie, depuly   minister of-mines,  stated,  that   the provincial government maintained    at   Victoria   an  assay office where ^quantitative and  qualitative.tests were  made.-free of  -charge   to prospectors.   -The.members of the board ware of -the  opin-  "������>������������. that a similar,office 'should  be  established _ in   the   interior" of T the  -"pYovince.YV-'The hvatteVwas-.- referred  to the-Associated Boards of Trade.   ,.  The"following is Mr. Tolmie's letter irf full: ' '  "I have the honor to acknowledge  the receipt of your letter of the 26th  ult., containing^ copy of a'resolution ^passed at your last regular  meeting, requesting the government  to .'establish assay offices at central  points convenient to the ore districts  throughout the province, where assays of mineral can be obtained fiee  or at a nominal charge.'  "In reply I beg to quote from the  1912 annual report of  the   minister  of mines, page 31, regarding the as  . say cilice, as follows:    'In   addiuon  to   the  above  quantitative  work, a  large number of qualitative   determinations,   'or tests, were made -in  connection   with  the   identification  and classification of rocks or  minerals sent to  the   bureau for reports.  Of. these   no"   count   was kept, nor  were any fees charged, as   it   is   the  established custom of the bureau   to  examine   and    test    qualitatively,  without charge, samples of minerals  sent in from any. part of  the   prov  ince,   and   to  give  a report of the  same.    This has been done  for  the  purpose of encouragiogthe search for  new or rare minerals or ores, and to  assist prospectors and others in  the  discovery   of  new. mining districts,  by   enabling ' them   to have deter-  mined,"free of cost, the  nature ancl  probable value of any rock theymay  find..In making these free determinations, the bureau asks that the   locality from whiqh the sample   was  obtained be given by the sender.' "  A.   D.   Smith, an   aviator,  wrote  from Spokane that  he expected   to  ^tothe board's request that Christina  lake be stocked with.bass fingerlings  The secretary reported that the  board at present had 111 members.  A .number of bills were ordered  'paid. The president and Dr. Acres  were appointed a committee to in  terview ihe city council next Monday night in reference to the"oily  paying a portion ot the expense for  the entertainment of the Canadian  Pacific railway parly. The pipsident  expressed theopinionthat the money  had been well expended.  A vote of thanks was t"ii(1ered lo  those who had furnished autotno  biles at the entertainment of the C.  PR. officials, and'also to Mr. Niles  for the use of the residence and the  lawn on the Covert estate.  A. 0.

The  secretary   was  instructed to  write to the secretary of the Chahko  Mika carnival in Nelson, requesting  him to "set  aside-a Boundary'day,  and also to suggest to him .the  advisability   of   his urging   the other  towns'in' this district.of co operating  with this city to make the" turn-out  on  that .day  a  success.-   It is thTe  present intention of the board to run  an excursion train to the celebration.  Some of the members of the board,  were anxious to learn when tbe provincial government intended to  enforce the laws passed at the late session of.the legislature for the regulation of the members of the Doukho-  bor colony.    It   was   pointed   out  that at   present  the  children of the  colony    were, employed   in pulling  weeds in the fields instead   of  being  sent to school.    The board  decided  to   take   no   action    until the next  term of school.  The secretary was instructed to  write to the superintendent of lands  at Vicroria for information regarding government lands in this district available for homesteacling or  pre-emption, and also to request  him to send any plans or maps of  the same that he might have.

The visilors were  greatly impressed "with the immense  ore showing at the   mine.    Mr. Mil  ler expressed   the   opinion, that  all  the  camp   required   was  capital to  develop it, and he would use his  influence   to   see   that money for this  purpose was brought in.'   It is  Mr.  Miller's intention to again   visit  the  camp in company   with   Vice Presi  dent   Bury  sometime    during    the  latter part of July.    In   the   meantime he will send Mr. Archibald, the  C.P.R. company's mining  engineer,  to examine the camp.    Funklcy inaugurated a twice-a  week sta^e service between this city  and Gloucester.. At present there is  a great deal of travel between the  two points, and as the season advances the undertaking should prove  quite profitable. Besides carrying  passengers, the stage will also carry  a limited amount of light freight,  such as ice and fresh fruit ancl vegetables. The stage will "leave- this  city every Tuesday aud Friday. Returning, 'it leaves Gloucester every  Wednesday - and Saturday Mr.  Funkley has also taken over the  hotel at Gloucester.

Mr.  Mader brought down some fine samples of peacock copper and grey ore,  of . which he is having assays  made.

The action of  the government is taken in connection with the extension of the  Kettle Valley line lo Franklin camp,  the necessity for _ which is being  urged by the people of Grand Forks.

Mrs. Frank Hoelzel left on Monday for Revelstoke, where she will  appear before the railway commission and ask that body to order the  Kettle Valley line to pay her damages for several cattle killed on the  North- Fork branch.  At  a   meeting  of tbe directors ot  the Grand Forks Agricultural   association, held in Secretary   Hadden's  office on Wednesday evening,; it was  decided to commence as soon as pos  sible the construction  of an   88,000  exhibition building.    The,   buiiding  will be iu the form  of   a  cross, and  will   consist   of   five  sections, each  40x40 feet.    It will be located ,ncar  the old entrance to the fair grounds"!  and will have a floor space   of   approximately 10,000 square feet.    It  is estimated that it will   require six  weeks to erect the building.     When  it is completed the directors intend to  give the biggest dance in it ever held  in   the    Boundary   country for the  purpose of raising funds'for the fair.  - W. A   DeCW and Stanley   Davis  were elected members  of the   direc  torate.  . The directors decided   to  call  on.  the ladies of Grand Forks for a  display of jancy work and'home  cooking at the next fall fair.    An   entire  section of the new building  will   be  devoted   to   this exhibit, and   the-  dtrectors  desire  to turn   the   management  of this' department over to  the ladies.  After transacting a  large amount .  of routine business, the meeting adjourned.  Blake-Cook and Mrs. Cook spent  Sunday at Christina Lake.

One of those put down a  quarter slightly defaced, which .the  clerk looked at minutely, rattled ou  the counter, and then pushed back,  with the remark:  It's not genuine. Like yourself,,it  is the worse for wear.  This angered the next passenger to  book, who got hack In his change a  . ten cent piece with a hole in It, and  on his' expressing an unwillingness to  accept it, tho.orlielal behind the pigeon-hole became very annoyed and  flatly refused to take It back'. But tlie  gentleman maintained it was defaced  worse than the seedy-looking fellow's  quarter.

"I'was directed here  '   by my. frieud- Dr.'Brown.   lie gave mo  to understand that your Arm did a little detective work now and then."   '  "Hardly that," returned Rogers, plac-:  fng a chair for his client and regaining  Lis own seat, "but in the course of out  practice, we have chanced upon a number of curious cases that we were fortunate enough to unravel. As a matter  of fact, we are rather fond of that sort'  of thing, although it is not a branch of  ' our business."  Tho visitor frowned thoughtfully for  ' a moment and then looked sharply at  '��������� the young lawyer. ,    . ���������, :  - "In spite of what* you say perhaps I  ��������� can prevail upon, you to undertake a  delicate matter for me. It is in the  line of detective'.work; but it requires  _ unusual tact, something that tho average detective does not possess." This is  ���������not the mere shadowing of a suspected  . party. It is an endeavor to find a thief  among a group of people- none of  whom could possibly .be guilty of  theft" Ho leaned back, and smiled at  Sogers' look of dismay.  "Tough proposition, .eh?"  "Rather. .It sounds interesting. With--  out consulting .my partner I'll say that  wo will take it up as-a recreation.after  iusiness" hours." '-    '-  "Done!"-returned the visitor heartily.  , Drawing a cardease from his pocket,  ho laid a bit of pasteboard ou Rogers'  " desk and leaned back in bis chair.  s   "My name is Gibson���������James Addiaon  Gibson," be said, nodding toward the  ;V-ard, "and my, house was robbed last  evening of $10,000 worth of jewels."  Rogers, sat,up ,in h;s cluiir and lis*  toned intently." "        '. "   "It happened at,my country home at  Shoreeliffe.   My wifeand 1 were euter-  ��������� taining six friends from Manhattan,  all people of refinement and impeccable honesty.  "During the evening Mrs. Gibson  mentioned that she had just received a  necklace of diamonds as n birthday  gift from me. and she brought out the  jewel case and displayed the necklace  "to her friends. It was greatly admired,  and 1 was about to close tho case and  replace it in my safe iu the library  when both my wife and myself were  snmmorad to the telephone by an  urgent message."  "Was the message really an urgent  one?"  "It proved to. De an error. There  ���������was sonie mistake about tho number,  and the Mr. and Mrs. Gibson called for:  tvere really my brother and his wife,  5vho lived over on the East road." .  "So your~absencc from tlie room was.  really unnecessary?"  '.'So.it appears."  "Did any one enter .or leave the room  during your absence?" .  "1 cannot find that any one remembers. I have questioned tho servants,  and all' are* unanimous in tho protest  that they ��������� had not entered the room  that'evening."        ,  "Who brought the message from the  telephone?"  "Pun Shah, my Hindu buttler."    .  'Sogers was silent for a long time,  and then he asked one more question.  "Did Pun Shah enter tbe room when  ho called you and Mrs. Gibson outside,  or did ho stand in the doorway?"  "He merely stood In tho doorway and  gave the message."  "May I have the names of tbe six  guests who were present that even'  tag?"        * -.,.������������������'.  Mr. Gibson nodded.  Sogers drew forth a pencil and notebook. "Please give a brief description  of each one iis.y.qii mention tho name,  not forgetting to give mo the chief  characteristics that mark each indi-  Tldual."  "First, there was Rodney Stone, tha  poet, a dreamy young chap, with his  lovely wife, who !b quite content to  dbine In the reflection of his glory.

"Those were the sir who were alone  with the jewels?"  "Yes." '  ,  ""And they are all unanimous In spying that not one person' entered the  room, during your absence?". .  -. "Yes, although It "Is singular that  Mme. Finelli and Mre. Rodney Stone  both declare that Pun Shah stood In  the doorway for a -moment' and regarded the company rather strangely  for n few seconds.

The case is  i singular one, and I do not.care.to  tall the police into tho matter, although the' loss is a greater one than  I can afford^to .withstand.. The,gift  to my wife was rather an important  matter financially." He suiilcd-ruefully.  Mr. Soger:; put np his notebook and  donncd'his hat.  "Where is Pun Shah now, Mr. Gil*  soil?" he asked. - '"    '.'  ��������� "Down at Shorccliffe, I presume. He.  was there at noon when I motored u[>  to town."  "Can you take mo to Shoreeliffe at  once?" "��������� s.  "Certainly; my car Is at the door."  Sogers dictated a brief message fof  his partner and left tho office with Mr.  .Gibson. In five,'minutes they were  spinning toward the Thirty-fourth  street ferry to Long Island City.  Shoreeliffe --was  a handsome estate  on the north shore of the sound, and  Mr.   Gibson   and   ibo young  lawyer  reached the gates -within an hour a'tec  leaving Rogers' office.  !     A grave eyed Hindu in snowy tur-  j ban admitted them to the house, and  1 Rogers  was 'conscious of a peculiar  . sensation.along his spinal column as  L ho met the man's piercing glance.  |-    He felt in that moment that Piiri  Shah know the reason for his coming  , as well as many other things that he  would not divulge.  He followed his host into the library  and listened intently while" Mr. Gibson  pointed out the table -where the jewels  had lain during his ahbcueo at the  telephone. The table was bcrwuen  two French windows that opened upon  . the front -veranda.  ."   "Were the windows open last evening?" asked Rogers.  "They   were  both  closed.    It  was  chilly and  we were enjoying' a  fire  ' on tho hearth."  Sogers was silent for a long time.  His eyes-wandered from'one spot, to  another. Once they g'impscd the  corner of Pun Shah's snowy turban  outside tho door, and again he was  sure that the man's jctly eye?, were  regarding hi in from a heavily beaded  curtain I hat separated tho library  from a smaller adjoining study.  "Well. Mr. Roger.*. I nm wondering  If you exonerate all my friends. My  theory docs not permit of s'.:?pbJon  pointing to oho of tb-m," icmarkcd  Mr. Gibson at last.  "My theory, Mr. Gibson, is tluit'all  your 8ix guests were accessory to tho  deed."  "What?

"Please summon them to this room,  and after that," continued Rogers in' a  low tone, "have the man, Pun Slwh,  sent in."       '  Mr. Gibson smiled'gHmly. "So that's  it, is it? I couldn't see how.the rasr.nl  had a chance. Excuse me. if ���������yon'please,  while I send for the men."  He left the room and Rogers waited  there alone. Presently he heard a  stealthy footstep behind his.chair and  a hot breath ou bis neck. O jumps*!  just in time to escape' Lhe wicked  knife of: Pan Shah, whose dark fai-o  was convulsed with anger.  Rogers had whipped out a revolver,  and so the two wore standing facing  each other when Mr. Gibson returned  with his four servants.   ,  "What is this, Pun Shah?" demanded  his master quickly, but the man only;  bowed his bend In silence.  ."Your man was-.about to kill me.''  said Rogers coolly, "because 1 hava  discovered that he is .the one who stuld  your diamonds."  "Is it possible? Pun Sbah, what have  you to say?"  The Hindu fastened a. look of deadly  hatred on the young lawyer and,  snatching off his turban, drow from Ufl  fold* the string of diamond!! that had  so mysteriously disappeared. Ho flung*  tho ornatucnta on tho floe at his mas--  tor's feet and with a e ift, cHdtnff  movement vanished from the room, ;  No one made a movement to follow,' 1  and an Instant Inter tl\oy e.-w th������  flicker of hla white turban as lie disappeared down the drlvewnr..  Mr. Gibson dismissed his servants  with a gesture, dropped the striug ot  diamonds in his coat pocket, and faced!  Rogers,  "How did you fasten the crime uport  Pun Shah so quickly? I had evidence  that no one saw him enter the room,  and"- ' - r  Sogers put up a band. ��������� "It is easily  explained. Your butler possesses unusual hypnotic powers: He simply  hypnotized the '���������'x guests iu your drawing room,-took le diamonds from beneath their noses an'" disappeared.  They might have been puzzled by the  Incident which made them accomplices  In his crime, but they were quite innocent of any wrongdoing. In fact, they  Jldn't. know what bad happened after  he left the room." .  Mr. Gibson sat down_and, drew his  theek book toward him.  "This is such a gratifying exhibition  >f your cleverness, Mr. _ Rogers, that E'  j must show my appreciation in a sub-  itanlial way. Hero Is a check for  U.OOO.

TOMB  OF JONAH.  LARGEST KNOWN ICE CAVE;  Wonders of the Frozen Grotto In the  Dachstein Mountains.  '  . A. few -years ago some members of  the Austrian Speleological society discovered in the Dachstein mountains  some.caverns which are among the  largest in Europe. One of these grottoes, the longitudinal axis of which is  fully G.500 feet long, moreover turned  out to offer additional Interest by its  truly enormous ice masses and was  found to be the largest known ice cave,  in the world.  Though a scorching sun may be  burning outside on the bare mountain  rock, there is always an ley wind  blowing through this underworld,  freezing everything within its reach.  Only sometimes, when the outside  temperature ranges between 32 and  41 degrees 0. and a comparatively  warm rain penetrates through the fissures of the rock, entering right into  the cavern, will there be a temporary  calm and distinct melting of tbe ice.  The Dachstein ice cave comprises  several domes filled with ice, which  communicate with one another through  a number of frozen galleries. An ice  crevice S9 feet deep and 11G feet in  width traverses the floor of the cavern  1C5 feet from the entrance. Gigantic  [ce pillars were found to tower on  both edges of this chasm, in the*depth  of which there unfolds a fairy-like ice  scenery. Beyond the abyss tho cavern  widens out into a mighty dome (Tristan' dome, as it- is called), where a  plain ice sheet reaches from one wall  to the other, carrying ice stalagmites  Df the most fantastic shapes.���������Scientific American."

The Bite -of Nineveh is almost p.er-  fectly level, but adjeining the western  wall are two huge mounds that conceal  the palaces of the greatest kings of  Nineveh. On tbe lower or southern  mound stand a mosque and a village  | of considerable size, says a correspondent of the Christian nerald.  The village is named Nebi Yunus, or  the Prophet Jonah, for the mosqua  contains the tomb in which Jonah Is  said to have been burled. The age of  the-tomb is uncertain, but it was probably built long after the Hebrew prophet's time. However, the place is now  sacred, so ^sacred that pilgrims from  afar visit it  "I rode up the steep, narrow streets  of tbe village to the mosque," writes  the Herald's correspondent, "dismounted and entered the yard. A crowd of  excited Ayahs quickly surrounded me.  I explained to a priest that 1 had come  to Bee the grave of Jonah, and with a  motion of tho band I made him understand that I should reward him.   Re-  , moving my shoes, I followed tho priest  through a dark" passageway.   ���������  "Then he pointed to a wall and said  the torabwas just beyond.

Ingenious Schemes Used by House-  fareaker6, When Detected In the Act  of Robbery, to Baffle Their Pursuer*,'  and Escape the Clutches of the Law.  The wise burglar considers not only  bow he may enter, but" also how he  may escape..   He has the whole thing  ' planned out before embarking on his  , venture, and nothing is lert to chance.  When he is at work in a room he  usually locks the door on the inside, or  If there is no lock ho simply props a  chair with its back  hard under -th������  door handle, thus making it quite impossible for any one to come ln.upoa  him unexpectedly.  ���������  Sometimes his ordinary precautions  fail, and he Is driven to take others on  thb-spurof the momeut. These are often Of the most extraordinary character and may ;nd In doing serious dam-,  BSe-to life and property.  An "instance in  point occurred not  long ago.at Hopwood, near Itedditcii.  A tralesman's wife was alone in the  house at night when she was aroused  by  a  creaking sound. . Opening  her'  eyes, she saw a rough looking man in  I the room.   Evidently be knew his way  ! about,  for he tiptoed to a chest of  ! drawers and took out a small cash box  ; which held a sum of about 575.   With  1 great presence of mind-the lady refrained from screaming.-   She waited  until the man.was out of the room,  then sprang up and hastily put on a  dressing gown.  Then she ran out, but on gaining the,  top of the stairs.tv: < met by a blaze  of flame. The thiei, who had evident- ���������  ly heard her get out of bed, had snatched up a pile of newspapers In tho passage below and, heaping them on the  6tairs, set fire to tbem.  -.It was impossible-to pass tbo barrier  .of fire, and, though fortunately help  cama-in time to put ue flames out, the  burglar got clean away.  Even.more cunning was the ruse of  n thief who ralued a bouse on.Woburn  street, London,'   The tenant, hearing a:  noise outside his bedroom door, Juinp--  ed up "and discovered that his watch  and chain were missing. Without wait-  5ng to put on slippers, he bolted downstairs and was Just In time to see th������  thief rush out of tbi' front door.   He  gave chas������'  The thief glanced around,  saw that his pursuer wa    barefooted  and, taking a bottle from his pocket;  flung it forcibly* down upon tho pavement in front of the other.  The householder i> aurally pulled up  short, Just in time to save his feet;  while   the   burglar,   turning - sharply  down a side alley, disappeared from  , ylevr.  ; The latter case calls to mind on������  ' .which happened in Devonport or. rather, in Sfoke, which is the residential  Buburb of that town. A naval oiflcer  was aroused about 3 a. in. on a winter  morning by hearing r light clatter  downsta'ra. He picked up a. sword  and wont down and located the sound  ns having come from the dining room.  There was a good deal of- silver  there, and he' at once made up his  mind that burglars were after it 3e-  trtcd the door, but found" it fastened  from tho insidei so went out of the  front door and rushed around to tha  window. -  But the "thieves had foreseen this -  maneuver. As he reached it one of  them flung a handful of pepper into his  face, and as he reeled back, choked  and half blinded, they both jumped out  and took to their heels.  One of the smartest tricks ever played by a burglar was in a house iu the  suburbs of Worcester. The man broke  In at night and. after packing up some  silver below, ventured upstairs to see  what he could find. The master of the  house spotted him and called his son.  They located Mr. Sykes in a first  floor front room. Ills shadow was  plainly visible on the blind, outlined  Apparently by a ^andlf or lantern.  Tho father kept watch outside in the  front, while the son went for a policeman. When ho returned with the of-,  fleer the shadow was still plainly visible. But when they went up and entered the room, behold there was nothing but an effigy made with pillows  aud a suit of. clothes;  The Intruder, seelug that he bad been  discovered, bad rapidly constructed  this to personate himself and had then  cleared off by means of a rope hanging  from a back bedroom window.���������Peat-  son's Weekly.
