Grand Forks, B. G, Fr'day, January 1, 1904
TWICE-A-WEEK,
Sale of Waterloo
Lightning Peak;Gompany Acquire Two
More Fire Valley Claims.
The Concern Has Ample Capital and Expect to Commence
Shipping Ore Early Next June—Development
to Be Started Soon.
An important mining deal was recently consummated in Nelson in
' which Grand Forks men are interested. The property in question
was located a little over a year ago
by Frank Fritz and others in the Fire
Valley district, which,-from, recent
accounts, is proving if/ be a rich
camp. The Nelson News has the
following to say concerning the deal:
The Wardner syndicate, which is
made up of James Wardner, and a
number of North Dakota bankers,
has just closed a deal for thef purchase of the Waterloo group of two
claims for a cash consideration of
820,000. These claims are to be
merged with those of the Lightning
Peak Mining company. This concern was organized in November and
immediately acquired the' Thunder
Hill group of four claims, which are
located in Fire Valley. The capital stock of the Lightning Peak company is $1,000,090, and now that
Waterloo group is to be added to its
insets the capital stock is to be increased to 11,500,000.
Mr. Wardner was enthusiastic yesterday when he was speaking about
the properties. They are located, he
says, about twenty miles from
Lower Arrow lake. The Thunder
Hill group of four claims was purchased for the Lightning Peak company from Geo. A. McLeod and his
live associates'and the consideration
, was $15,000. Tho' Waterloo group
was acquired from Geo;' A; McLeod,
who owned 5 12th, for $>io,000. i Mr.
Wardner further stated that the ore
from the properties is of a very high
grade, and so confident were ke and
I his associates that the section was
an alluring one to mine in that their
intention was U> acquire other properties in Fire Valley. A test ship-
ment of the average ore from the
properties of tho company was recently made with very, satisfactory
results. The shipment consisted of
158(11 pounds, and the smelter returns showed that it averaged $470
to the ton. The ledges are trom two
to three feet wide and can be traced
ou thc surface for long distances.
Asked bow the Lightning Peak
company intended to market its ore,
Mr. Wardner replied: "We intend
to 'haul it to Killaroey on Lower
' Arrow lake over a wagon road from
our properties. We have the choice
of the three local smelters in which
to market our output So from this
you will seo that there is plenty of
smelter competition, and where
there is lots of competition there is
sure to be good living rates for the
mine, owner. I expect that we will
/ have our properties in such aeon-1
dition that we will be able to send
'ore
intend to begin the-development of
the properties on a comprehensive
scale. The men with whom I am
associated have ample capital and
are ready to put up any reasonable
amount to equip and open their
properties. To my mind the investments which isp far have been
made by the South Dakota people
constitute but the thin entering
wedge to what they intend to do,
provided, of course, the initial enterprise is successful. I am fully
satisfied that the Fire Valley section,
when it is properly' opened, will
make one of the large producing
camps of the province. I am banking upon it, and believe that I and
those who are associated with me
will come out all right. I wish you
would mention that Peter Wilson, of
the firm of Galliher & Wilson, has
done some excellent work in the way
of getting the people together and
closing up the deals for the properties which have been acquired by
our company."

hall was brilliantly lighted, and pre?
sented a happy scene, with young
people enjoying themselves on all
sides. At 12 o'clock a delicious
luncheon was served. The hosteSB

the splendid success of the party.

THE RECORDS
Municipal matters are indeed
very quiet, considering the short
time that now remains before election. At present there is not a
mayoralty candidate in the field.
It is time the question was taken up
by the electors and a choice made, as
some time should be allowed candidates to place their policies before the
ratepayers and state s-Juarely their
positiion on the different issues that
at present are of interest to the people of the city. There are, as usual,
a number of citizens who want to see
a mayor and council elected that
will give them an "open" town
and there are a'so othi r4 who wish to
see the city government conducted
on the present moral system. The
question of-salaries for members of
the council should also be made an
issue in the forthcoming election,
and should either be endorsed or
condemned by the ratepayers. For
these reasons candidates should be
in the field at as early a date as possible, in order to afford them ample
time for setting views on these and
other questions before the public.

EXTRAORDINARY OFFER
A radical change from old methods and prices was announced by
the Toronto News this week. The
eyes of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will se-
cure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch' with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

Anecdotal.
When the English barrlrter, Rlchrrd
Bve desired to "take ailk"~or, in other
words, to become a Queen's Counsel-
he (sent the usual nolo to the senior
members on the circuit to see whether
anyone objected,, according to custom.
Mr. Adam Walker, one of the senior
members, replied aa follows;—" My
dear Eve!—You may take silk or a tig
leaf.   I don't care.—Adam."
Shortly after Sir Lawrence Alma-
Tadema, R.A., was knighted, he and
Lady Alma-Tadema gave an At
Home at St. John's Wood. Everybody present was congratulating them,
and one lady was v-iry profuse. "Oh,
dear Sir Lawrence." she said, "I am
awfully glad to hear of the honor you
have received. I suppose nbw that you
are knighted you will «4ve up painting
and live like a gentleman."
In an Ohio town last fa-!, the Afrfoin
Methodist-Episcopal .Church of chat
district held a conference, and for a
week the town was filled with colored
pulpit orators. A few days after tha
conference closed its sessions, one of
the leading colored women of the town
drove out to Pea Ridge to purchase
chickens of an old mammy who had
supplied the family for years. Aunt
Hanna, coming to the gate, said: " I'm
sorry, Miss Allie. I ain't got a chicken
left.   Dey all done enter de ministry.
A story Is going the rounds about
a prominent Nova Scotia lawyer who
Is noted, for his carelessness tn dress,
which fact annoys the members of the
Bar exceedingly. Entering the courtroom, one day minus a cravat, the
judge reproved him, saying the law
required him to wear one. '■ Oh. yes,
your honor. I know it," he answered;
"■but It does not say where he shall
wear It," and as he spoke he pulled It
out of his trousers pocket. The matter
then dropped.
General William T. Sherman was
fond of-relating the following story:
" When I was with the army in Georgia, a slave-owner about Christmas
time missed a fine fat turkey. He suspected a good-looking mulatto, and ordered the man brought before htm.
' Tou have stolen my turkey and oaten
It,' eald the Irate planter. ' I'se not
gwlne to say I didn't, when you says
I did, massa,* 'I ought to have you
flogged. What have you to say why
I should not punish you?' ' Well, massa, you hain't'lost anything particular.
Tou Bee, you has a little less turkey
and a good deal more nigger.' And the
master was compelled to acknowledge
the philosophy of the slave, and let
bim go unwhlpped."
As a young man Paul Kruger was regarded as an authority on psalm singing, and the farmers used to come to
him to learn the keynote' for starting
the psalms at the next Sunday's service. Kruger, even In those days, waa
no believer in the policy of giving anything away—not even a note of music—
so he had a uniform charge of a double
handful of dried peaches for his Instruction, Even the fact that the work
was in the service of religion did not
deter him from resorting to strategy,
for he made a point of giving each applicant a different note. The result
when the pious Doppera attempted to
raise tbeir voices in sacred harmony
next Sunday may be Imagined. The
result was that each man concluded he
had lost the key, and had to return for
a further lesson. "I nearly bankrupted
tEhem of their dried poaches," -said the
president
Ford Madox Brown, the artist, ones
had to be smuggled Into his own exhibition. The occasion \y.a-s a private view
In Bond street of the 'Manchester fresco, "John Kay." The artist being unwell at the time was accompanied In
his carriage-to the gallery bv his doctor and old friend, WWUam Gill. The
time passed pleasantly enough en route
In conversation, when suddenly Madox
Brown's talk came to an abrupt full
■top; he started as though struck by
some very disquieting thought, and
wildly plunged round In his various
pockets, blank dismay depicted on his
countenance the while. "Good heavens,
GtW!" he exclaimed, "I have forgotten
my card of admission! What am I to
do?" "Tour card of admission!" replied his amazed friend, "surely you
can get in without that?" "No, no,"
answered Madox Brown In despair,
"they will never let me In—they don't
know me!" Fortunately, however Mr.
GUI was provided with the necessary
passport, and he thus played the distinctly original role of getting an artist
admission into his own show.

HAROLD JACKSON, Proprietor
Ugga (or Tht British Museum.
A notice of the collections recently
bequeathed by the ' late Mr. Philip
Crowley to the natural history branch
of the British Museum appeared a few
days ago in tha "Times." A very Important portion of the bequest is the
collection of eggs, from which 15,200
specimens have been added to the series previously possessed by bhe museum. Among the gems 'In the Crowley
cabinet are an egg of the great auk
and one of the extinct pled Labrador
dui*k. Both these specimens were acquired by Mr. Crowley from Canon
Tristram. The great auk's egg Is one
of the last "batch" despatched In 1814
from Iceland to Denmark. The two
specimens In the museum previous to
•this addition were both cracked and lu
otherwise poor condition, ■ An Interesting item in the collection Is the, number
of clutches of eggs of various' species
of birds with a cuckoo's egg among
Cham. The Crowley collection has added
about 16 per cent, to the species of
birds represented by -their eggs In tho
museum, the Increase being especially
marked in Australian forms, In which
the national collection was previously
weak.

r^WO years a?* when the cowboy*
of north-eattern Arisone^ came
together to find out who was ths
"bsst man** In various ways, James
Evans won the steer-tying championship hy roping, throwing and tying a
vicious steer In twenty-four seconds.
But In a recent round-up the champion
did a more remarkable thing, by which,
says the Kansas City "Star," he saved
his own and another man's life.
While he and some companions were
camping for the night on a high tableland, which ended s few miles away In
an abrupt drop of two hundred feet, a
storm swept through the mountains.
Made nervous by the lightning, the
herd of fifteen hundred cattle stampeded In the direction of the precipice.
Evans and his men mounted hurriedly
and, circling to tb* front of the madder ^d cattle, tried with whoops and
revolver-shots to turn them back.
In the dense blackness of the night
Evans's horse ml'&ed hts footing: and
went down In a heap, one leg In a
gopher-hole. The horse of a cowboy
named" Davis, running close behind,
stumbled over Evans's horse, and Davis, too, came to earth and lay still*
unconscious.
Fifty yards away came the herd, and
a short flash of lightning showed Evans,the situation. The swiftly moving
pea of cattle reached one hundred yards
each way. Unable to arouse Davis,
and never thinking of leaving his disabled comrade, Evans took the only
chance of saving both. He emptied his
own revnlver and his companion's into
the center of the herd, cutting a breach
In the front of the masB. Then, throwing the Inanimate form of Davis over
his shoulder, he awaited his opportunity.
Aa one of the lenders brushed by,
Evans, with one movement, put the
body of DrvIs acmsa the shoulders of
the steer, and mounted, also. Vainly
the animal leaped, bucked and side-
Jumped. With his lei?s wropped tightly around the holy of hi- mount, Evans
drove his rpurg deep in, and held himself and Davis in place.
The steer, wild with rase, agony and
fright, rapidly left tbe herd tn the rear,
and, veering to the right.In a furious
gallop, carried his riders out of danger.
Then Evans rolled off the back of hts
strange rescuer, and a half-hour later,
when his cowboys turned the herd at
the rim of the canyon, and rode back to
look for the foreman and Davis, they
found them, both unconscious. The
weary steer, with j his sides covered
with blood, lay exhausted a short distance away..
The outfit ordered a medal for Evans,
and the steer has been pensioned for
life on the best atfnlfa In the valley.

A Visit to a Saint Factory.
WHAT lends a peculiar Interest to a
viatr to such a factory, writes a
contributor to "Pearson's Magazine," <* the curious suggestion of humor which, In onfs conversation with
th" workmen and employees, come-i to
relieve th# deep sense of awe and reverence which at all times weighs upon
one.
I remember that, having contemplated, not without a -painful feeling In
my breast, the mot-t lamentable figure
of an old man In monk's attire, whose
hands w«ra pierced, whose side was
pierced, and from whose furrowed brow
large drops of blood were trickling
down, I asked a passing workman to
tell me whom the statue represented.
And he called to a fellow-workman:
"Who Is that old gent up there?" It
was St. Francis 4'Assist. The painful
feeling was for a while dispelled. This
was but a figure after all, an article of
trade. And so also, when one hears
the clerks calling through the telephones: '.'When ts t it -St. Maurice
coming down?" "Five St. Anthonys,
with their pigs, wanted at once." And
bo on. There Is not a vesllge of irreverence tn these .remarks, but, as I say,
they are not without a most welcome
suggestion of humor.
For, Indeed, the terrible realism o(
many of these statues must Impress
even the most IndliTerent.' I could not
refrain from asking the maker of
saints why he allowed hts artists to
carry the horrible to such extremes.
Here was a St.-Jean de Dieu succoring
a leper, on whose body the modeller
had not omitted one of the horrid
signs of that most foul of maladies.
Here was a writhing St. Sebastian
streaming with blood. Here a chained
woman In the flames of purgatory extended her anguished hands.
"We export very largely to South
America," said Monsieur Pacheu, "and
jt Is necessary '.hat, to Impress the Imaginations of the people there—who ars
Indifferent, as a rule, to suffering—we
should strike hard. Yet In none of our
figures Is truth surpassed. That leper
la studied from life. Those horrid
bruises were copied from a corpse."
