cup which belonged to some eminent
Viking was recently found. It is
fashioned out of the vertebra of a
whale, but is still in good condition.
The place where it was discovered is
supposed to have been the grave ot

skeletons of his dogs and horse.
Antiquarians are of the opinion tbat
these curious relics date back to tbe
era of Harold Harfayer, who flourished more than a thousand years ago.

SLATE CUT BY WIRE

Connected with the Welsh mining
industry a notable revolution is being
effected, owing to tbe intioduction of
the wire saw, which was tested in the
Pyrenees and proved a great success.
At Labassere the saw was first used
for the purpose of cutting across the
inclined beds of slate, and it severed
great blocks without blasting. Professor Le Neve Foster then suggested to
tbe British government that the saw
be tested in North Wales, and the experiments which followed that slate
might be quarried by tbis new method
with conspicuous advantages, among
them being a large reduction in tbe
cost of working, ot explosives and of
removing rubbish, less blasting, Iras
waste oi good rock, and no need 01
quarrying worthless rock in underground working.
A similar wire saw has been used
for some time in Belgium and Italy,
for the purpose of quarrying marble.
It is an endless cord composed of
three bard wires twisted togetberl
which is made to travel aloug by machinery and is fed continuously with
■and and water, the sharp particles of
•and gradually cutting a groove: As
the groove is deepeued the cord must
necessarily be kept applied to tbe
rock. This is effected by guiding pulleys mounted in pits sunk at the ends
ot the proposed cut.
Tbe wire saw was applied at Carrara foa subdividing blocks of marble,
buj it did not do good work until Mr.
A. Mouticolo invented an ingenious
device which he termed a panetrating
pulley and by which it is possible tu
replace the somewhat costly pit by a
dure hole three inches in diameter.
Since its introduction at Carrara cuts

. There is not a little dissatisfaction
in this section because of the small-
ness of the appropriation for roads
and trails. The two past sessions of
the local assembly were quite generous with Rossland riding, and especially with Grand Forks district, but
the mam er in which the grafters who
infest the city squaudered the amnunis,
in conjunction with the government
pets, has given the government a good
excuse for feeding its satellites in
other quarters this season, and Rossland riding, one of the largest in tbe
province, only gets $14,500. A one-
man governmfint is a fine thing—if
you don't care what you say—especially in the light of our boasted
democracy.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is Situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the eity for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie,'traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pioturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia, and the
Vancouver, Vlctora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifte railway company has large interests In the eity,
having seleoted the site on aooount of
the superior natural advantages as a
rail way centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best In Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year Is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle Blver valley
there Is an extent «f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small f rnit and
vegetable'farms, will sustain a large
population,
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber oan be prooured at
fair prices, and brlok lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests are of the first
Importance to this country, and will
do muoh to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the oity, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water it supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of exeep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plaut
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to tha
city,
Owing to th* fine climate, the central situation, the beautlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
e an eduoational oentre, a oity of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and whon finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior. .
