A Big Undertaking
Tunnel No. 4 at Granby Mines Will Be
Started This Week.
Winnipeg a few nights ago the house
was so crowded that many bud to be
turned away, and be wns compelled
to repeat the .same play the following night. The people of Grand
Forks should not miss tbis treat.
A Part of the Extensive Program of Development Mapped
Out by the Company—Will Be 1200
Feet Long.
Superintendent Williams, of tbe
Granby mines, says that tbis week
he will begin driving tunnel No. 4,
which will strike tbe main ore body
at a depth of several hundred feet
from the apex, on the 200-foot level
of the Old Ironsides mine. This
tunnel was. projected last spring,
when thc definite announcement
was made that the V.,V. & K. would
be built into Phoenix by fall. Tbe
surveys were run in the heart of the
municipality, to reach tho proposed
tunnel of the (iranby mines. The
tunnel will have its mouth at the
foot of Church street, in the centre
of tbe city, and wben completed will
give four main tunnels by which the
Knob Hill and Old Ironsides mines
can be tapped, thereby doing away
with hoisting.
The new tunnel will have to be
driven a distance of aboot 1200 feet
under the business part of tbe city
of Phoenix to reach tbe present
workings of the Old Ironsides none,
and will require some little time to
complete.
It is not believed that the starting
of this bore at this time has any sig-
nilicance so far as railway construction is concerned. It now is merely
a part of the extensive program of
development mapped out by Supt.
Williams, which is being carried
out. The tunnel will lie useful
as soon as completed, not only for
tbe better ventilation of tbe mines,
but for tbe purpose of taking long
stocks of timber into the lower workings for building ore chutes, which
cannot now be taken the timber or
other shafts. The completion of the
tunnel, which will likely eventually
bo equipped with cars inn by power,
will bo a decided step in advance in
mining development in the Boundary country.
It is reported that last week John
FaiTOll, who bonded the Jack I'ot
fraction, adjoining the Athelstan, in
Wellington camp, a few weeks ago,
had received a second payment of
86000 on the short time bond on the
property. When the claim was taken
over by the Athelstan syndicate
some weeks ago, it was on a basis of
815,000 for the mine, of which #3000
was paid in cash at the time. .Mr.
Farrell has thus received 8*000 on
thc purchase price of the claim, the
balance of $7000 being due also in a
short time. While nothing is given
out for publication, it is understood
that the Jack Pot is turning out
fully as well as expected when it was
bonded, and is likely to become one
ofthe important' claims of tbe
Boundary.
lie very successful, and it ia almost
certain that the mill will soon be
running again. The additional machinery required will not be expensive or require remodeling of tbe
mill.

Is said to meet with the approval of
physicians and chiropodists.
When "Looking Backward" was
written it was the prophecy ot a
dreamer that In a hundred years the
citizen would hear sweet music by
telephone. Already in London advertisements of fashlo table flats offer you
the luxury of an electrophone la each
suite.
An English paper says that a great
many valuable Jewels were swept up
after King Edward and Queen Alexandra's recent court. An equerry superintended the work and great care
was taken with the valuable finds,
most of which Were promptly enquired
for by their owners.
A peculiarly interesting ceremony has
been gone through at Westminster Abbey several times. A stalwart grinning
bobfey sits upon an ordinary cane-
seated chair, while a tin crown Is put
on his head to the accompaniment of
thunderous peals from the great organ, and the shrill voices of the boy
choir. It is one of the rehearsals preliminary to the coronation.
The English sparrow, which has
made so many enemies In the East,
has Invaded the Rocky Mountain region. For some time past, Mr. T. D. A.
Cockerell reports, It has been known
In the north-eastern section of New
Mexico, at Raton and Las Vegas, and
it seems to be gradually spreading
westward and southward, having recently been noticed, Cor the first time,
at Albuquerque.
One of the bloodiest bull-fights ever
witnessed In Juarez, Mexico, was on
March 16, when Fuentes and Mazzan-
tlni, Spain's mo.st renowned matadors,
fought six bulls to the dealh. Five
horses were horribly gored and killed
or mortaliy wounded during the combat, which lasted three hours, and the
ten thousand people who saw the Sunday afternoon battle had their thirst
for gore fully satisfied.
The Russian Government has undertaken the completion of a great petroleum pipe line from the oil-wells of
Baku on the Ca plan Sea to the port of
13a turn on the Black Sea, a distance ot
about 650 miles, following the axis of
the Caucasus range of mountains. Several years may be requited to finish
the work, but when the' line Is in operation It will be capable of transporting
826,000,000 gallons a year, and the Intention Is to compote In the world's
markets with American petroleum.
It Is difficult to account for the enormous velocity of some birds" flight
when migrating. The northern blue
throat goes .at the rate of 540 miles an
hour, Hying 4,800 miles from Egypt to
Heligoland tn a spring night of barely
nine hours. Virginian plover fly from
Labrador to North Brazil, 9.G00 miles,
without stopping, going at the rale of
G36 miles in an hour, and probably
more. How enn this speed be attained?
"Nature Notes" thinks it la because the
birds resort to great heights, where
the resistance of the air is slight.
Among the most interesting experiments In telephoning without wires are
those of Monsieur Ducretet, a French
scientist. He places an ordinary telephonic transmitter In direct communication with the ground, and at a considerable distance away, on the other
side of some buildings with thick walls
and cellars, he has a receiver, connected by one wire to the earth, and
by another wire to a small metallic
sphere let down through an opening
to the floor of the catacombs beneath
Paris, When words are spoken Into
the transmitter they are heard In the
receiver with much greater clearness
than In an ordinary telephone. Monsieur Ducretet Is continuing his experiments at Increasing distances.
In many farming districts of the
West the telephone is taking the place
of the newspaper In certain directions.
With the spread of the telephone to
farms has come about what the company calls a "news service." At a
given hour every evening—seven o'clock
Is tbe time In most communities—the
central operator calls up Its long line
of subscribers and reads off to them,
as to one man, the important happenings of the day. First the oflicial
Washington time Is given, so that
clocks may be regulated, and then
come the weather quotations for the
next twenty-four hours. Market quotations of farm commodities always
follow, so the subscriber In Smith Dakota knows what his butter sent last
week to New York, Chicago or Boston
sold for that day. Tbis one feature
alone Is changing the markets for certain farm products, and swinging tbem,
for Instance, from Boston to New York,
and vice versa. Important news of
national moment Is also telephoned
briefly without bins, and thus the
twenty minutes devoted to this news
service is filled out.
Id Desperation.
The European king sighed and
stirred uneasily. "My subjects,' he
exclaimed, "are getting so enlightened,
so imbued with the Ideas of democracy,
that they no longer fawn upon me,
toady to me. There's only one xhlnf
for me to do to relieve this monotony.
I must visit America."—"Town Topics."

Curiosities of Book Sales.
Commenting on tn* phenomenal sals
of some recent novels, a cor respondent
of the "Book Buyer" writes Interestingly of notable books that years ago
were popular, but since huve beconw
praotlcally unknown.   He says:
There waa once a very popular
preacher who wrote many books, and
for every one thens was a large demand on the day of publication. But
most of them passed out of print while
he was still living, and I doubt if a
single one of them Is now kept In
stock by any bookstore. Not many
years ago appeared a book which the
laboring classes and the tenement-
house population bought so eagerly as
to run the sale Into the hundreds of
thousands, because they thought It
showed how an equal distribution of
all property might be brought about.
Now it appears to be dead. Helper**
"Impending Crisis" attained a eaJe of
140.000 copies, forty years ago, which
■was as great an achievement as half a
million would be to-day. That was
because of Us bearing on burning political questions and the fact that It
was systematically attacked In Congress. Now you can occasionally find
a stray copy of it In a second-hand
shop. Tourgee's "Fool's Errand," twenty years later, reached about the same
circulation. For purposes of comparison, this and "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
would seem to be closely analogous.
But while the "Fool's Errand" has almost, If not quite, gone out of circulation, Mrs. Stowe's great novel, thirty
years older, still sells largely in several
editions, and at many libraries Is called
for more frequently than any other
book. Mrs. Stephens' "Fashion and
Famine" was the best selling novel of
Its day, and three translations of It
were published In France. But to-day
it is difficult to find a copy of It anywhere except In the lumber-room of a
public library. Another example may
be seen in the audden popularity and
subsequent deadness of "Robert Els-
mere," the author of which Is still
writing successful books. Were It not
that It might seem like telling tales out
of school, something could be said of
certain books that have begun life
with a phenomenal sale, which has
stopped suddenly and unnccountably,
as If at some mysterious signal.
For the reverse of the picture, the
most notable exaimpl? Is afforded by
"Ben Hur." This book had no sali
worth mentioning for a year after its
publication, and was considered dead.
Now it Is said to have attained a circulation surpassing that of any other
American novel, with the single exception of "Uncle Tom's Cabin.*'
Someone might prepare a curious
and entertaining article on three
olasses of books in light literature: 1.
Those that have had an Immediate
large sale, and have then gone to oblivion. 2. Those that have had no saie
at first, but afterward have met with
large success1. 3. Those that have
been popular at the start and never
lost tjielr popularity. The first closa
would be the largest. Probably the
second class would be the smallest.
Two that would shine in the third ara
the "Autocrat at the Breakfast Table"
and "Reveries of a Bachelor."
The Making: of Anagrams.
Apropos the renewal of the Shake*
speare-Bacon controversy, an article
by William Sheppard In the "Era" on
the making of anagrams Is enlightening. "A correspondent has asked
me," says Mr. Sheppard, "to furnish
him with some good anagrams on
the names of famous people. Ha
further Informs me that he
has spent a good deal of time
trying to make an acceptable anagram
on the United States, and has failed tu
do so. With reference to this failure, i
would remind him that he must not be
discouraged. The task he has attempted Is an enormous one. United Stales
has Just a dozen letters. Now, mathematicians will tell him that a dozen
letters will admit of seven thousand
and twenty-nine millions (7,02't.OOO.OOO)
nf possible tr.in«posltions. Old Camden has vividly described the vexation
of soul undergone by anagiammatlsts
when oft-repeated effort, with an ofi-
repeated approximation to success,
have finally resulted in loss of time
and labor: 'Some have been seen,' lie
says, 'to bite their pens, scratch their
heads, bend their brows, bite their lips,
beat their board, their paper, when
they were fair ■ for somewhat and
caught nothing herein.' Again, let him
comfort himself by the reflection that
no one has yet succeeded In making a
good English anagram on United
States. Anagramma lists have been
forced to fall back upon the more fluent
and manageable Latin. It has been
discovered that the letters forming
United States may be transposed into
the following Latin words:
In te deus stat. "God stands In then."
Inde tutus stat. "Hence thou stand-
est safely."
Dentatus e?t. "He has teeth," th*
"he" evidently referring lo Uncle Sam.
Deslste, nutat! "Hands off, he
shakes!" a sentiment which may have
been applicable In 1861, when It was
made, but Is now, thank Heaven, without meaning or point.
Slste, nudat te. "Stop, he strips
thee," which might be revived to-day
by the An tl-Imperialists in their warnings to our new subjects In Cuba and
the Philippines.
A te deslstunt. "They keep off from
thee." which is exactly the attitude
which the anti's wish the United States
to assume towards Cuba and the Philippines.
