Dominion Government Grants a Subsidy of $6400 per Mile.
Kettle Valley Line to Be Extended to Franklin Camp—Construction Work Will Probably Be Commenced Next Spring.
[inst Monday a private dispatch
was received in this eity from Ottawa stating that the Dominical parliament had granted a subsidy of $6400
por mile in aid of the extension of
tho Kettle Valley line up the north
fork of Kettle river, to a point fifty
miles north of (irand Porks.
The proposed road will afford
shipping facilities to a large number
of mining properties along the route,
including the Seattle, Volcanic,
Mumming Bird, Diamond Hitch
and Pathfinder. The objective point
of the railway is Franklin camp,
forty miles north of this city. Tbej
surface showings of Franklin camp
are described as larger than those of
the Boundary, arid Intovaluesi are|
considered higher. A branch may
also be extended from the forks of
the river to the eoal fields, where
there are also valuable timber hinds.
It is understood that thc construction of tho proposed road will
bo undertaken next spring.
Send Samples to England,
To the Editor of The Evening Sun.
Sin:—Will you kindly allow me,
through your paper, to place before
I lie farmers and fruit growers a
scheme for the advancement of our
province? The advantages of British Columbia as a place for settlers
are very little known, and it can-
not be denied that where printed
matter will often pass unblooded, the
object itself will arrest attention.
My   proposition,   therefore,  is to
colled  samples  of roots, bill and
winter fruit, etc.,   to !«• forwarded
to Great Britain,   Hero tbey could
remain on exhibition  for a   certain
time in the large towns,   and  afterwards   be   distributed   amongst the
hospitals and such-like institutions,
where tbey would no doubt be highly   appreciated.     I   would   suggest J
printing a list ofthe donors, together
with   particulars  of the fruit, etc., i
which  eneb    contributes,  so  that
intending settlers might, if tbey  de-1
sired, obtain Information about any
particular locality from  a   resident.
By this means it might also be pos-1
Bible to open fresh markets for our
fruit and introduce capital.
I would esteem it a favor if intending donors of produce would
kindly give probable weight and
class of sample when communicating with mc, in order to facilitate
arrangements for collection. Yours
truly,        W. V. Eeonaud, .1. I'.,

The Millionaire and the Pie.
One time a millionaire found himself at nightfall in a small town that
a*as ministered io by no raliroau, And
he had In his pocket a one-hundred-
dollar bill and in his stomach a sense
of hunger,
And he went to tho only store In the
town to buy food for hhn-tlt. Now the
keeper of the store was a man ot
much caution and narrow mind.
"I tini aa .hungry an my stomach
knows how to be," said the millionaire affably.   "Sell me that veal pie."
As he spokfe he Laid down the hundred-dollar bill.
The cautious itorekeeper picked it
up and looked at It with doubt mingled
with distrust and accompanied with
dubiety. Then he said: "My veal pla
Is worth ten cents to me, but 1 never
heard of such a bill as that. Give me
one with another picture on It, for this
one is not worth a veal pie, I am sure."
And the millionaire, said:
"My friend, it so happens that this
evening finds me with no other picture
bills upon my person nor yet any coin.
The bill Is surely worth a hundred ot
the ordinary, every-day kind. But that
Is neither here nor there."
But the storekeeper shook his head
"Nothing will recompense me for the
veal pie but money that I can understand. There may be hundred-dollar
biils, but I never saw one before. I
know the worth of my veal pic, and If
you have ten cents you can eat It, but
If you haven't you can't."
"But I have not ten cents," said tha
millionaire; "so let us put It on another basis. Give me the veal pie out of
charily, for my stomach Is not used to
being put off."
"Now we're on familiar ground," said
the storekeeper, as he sliced a piece of
cheese aud ate it; "I have seen beggars many times, and as I never saw
one so well dressed as you are i doubt
you. You cannot be a beggar. Your
clothes betray you, and even if you
were one 1 would" not help you as l do
not believe in encouraging mendicancy."
"You are difficult beyond a doubt,'
said the millionaire, raising his eyebrows and shakli.g his head. "1 have
It, Let me work for the veal pie. I
am strong. Have you no boxes that
need unpacking, no goods that need to
be shelved?"
Said the storekeeper, looking at the
cloi k: "1 have never Insulted the frame
that the Lord gave me by calling In
others to do that which 1 can do myself. My boxes are unpacked and my
goods are shelved. If you have, ten
cents you can take the veal pie, but be
quick, for it is the hour of closing."
Then the millionaire felt In his vest
pockits and found a counterfeit dime
which he had received In change the
day before. And rendered desperate by
his hunger he gave the storekeeper tha
dime and received In exchange the veal
pie. For to the near-sighted storekeeper the coin looked good.
As for the millionaire, he ate the pli
like a shipwrecked mariner. And the
near-sighted storekeeper dropp.M-l the
counterfeit into his till with contentment—Charles Battell Loomis in "Saturday Evening Post."

A Useful Helpmate.
The editor of the Grapevine "Telegraph," after spending six years
without a break, In the editorial
harness, felt himself entitled to a vaca
tion, and went away to the mountains
for a month's hunting and il-dilng,
leaving his wife in charge of the paper.
On his return he was astonished to
find his office overflowing with potatoes. Everything that could be turned
Into a receptacle wns tilled with them.
Each pigeonhole In his desk contained
a potato. The drawer of his editorial
table was bursting with potatoes. Old
lnk-kegs, lined With papers, were filled
and heaped with them. There wer»
potatoes in the coal-bucket, In the ash-
pan, nnd even In the stove Itself.
They were no small potatoes, either.
Every one of them was as big as his
fist, and some were as big as two fists.
The collection would have tulten a premium at a county fair.
"Lucy," he said, after the greeting!
were over, "what docs nil this mean?"
"Oh," she almost sobbed, "I wanted
to do something original, and su 1 announced, In the first number of the
paper I printed after you went
away, that the 'Telegraph' would
be sent for one year to the per-
Bon sending us the largest potato raised In this county, for six
months to the person sending the next
largest, nnd for three months to the
one sending the third largest. The potatoes began coming In right away,
and they've been coming ever since.
Some persons, I am afraid, have tried
to get all three of the prlr.es. I have
begged the people not to send nny
more, and I do believe they are doing
it now for a Joke. We can't announce
any prizes till they quit coming, and
there me some boys in the other room
with their pockets bulging with them
right now, and—uh. Cyrus, what shall
we do?"
"Do?" said the editor, with a grin on
his fnce. "Do? The right thing to do
would be for me to go away for anotn-
er month and let you continue to edit
the paper. Potatoes are worth a dollar a bushel, nnd you have got enough
of them here to pay nil the expenses
of my trip, and all they cost us Is a
dollar and seventy-five cents' worth of
'Telegraph.' If you want nn apprentice, just consider iae In line for tho

The first monument ever erected to a

Emperor's kitchen.
A new volume of reminiscences by
Dean Hole quotes the following extraordinary prayer .ns offered" by a loyal
hut certainly Injudicious Knglish clergyman on behalf of Queen Adelaide, the
wife of William IV.; "Oh Lord, save
Thy servant, our sovereign lady, the
queen; grant that ns she grows an old
woman she may become n new man;
Strengthen her with Thy blessing that
she may live a pure virgin, bringing
forth sons and daughters to the glory
of God, and give her grace that she
may go forth before her people like a he

Certain creeds seem to monopolize
certain Industries. Practically all British manufacturers of cocoa, for example, are Quakers. In London a very
large percentage of cigar merchants
nnd all the best-known manufacturers
of Christmas cards are Jews. Whenever a Welshman goes to London to
seek his fortune It Is long odds on his
making his pile either in the draper's
or drug* More business. Irishmen, probably owing to the foot that they lack

Gasolene Is, It appears, the fuel most
suitable for submarines; but human
sensations give no sure warning when
its collected fumes are becoming dangerous. White mice, however, are said
to be extremely .sensitive to this poison,
and perish Incontinently before human
beings beffln to suffer the slightest ill-
effects. So In all submarines of the
future cages full of white mice are to
be kept on the floor, whence the heavy
emanations gradually rise, and lit will
always be someone's duty to go round
and see how the mice are getting on.
Much Interest attaches to the recent
discovery at Combarelles, In the department of Boulogne, France, of a
cave the rock walls of which are decorated with engraved figures, some of
which are rudely colored, representing
■such animals as the horse, the cow, the
bfson, the reindeer, the mammoth and
the wild goat. Most of the?,; pictures,
which number mure than 100, are covered with a' stalagmltic deposit, partially or entirely concealing them. It lE
believed that they were made In paleolithic times, and that they furnish evidence that the reindeer and the maVi-
moth lived in Frame contemporaneously with the artists of the cavern.
It is a curious fact that the present
session of the United States Congress
contains no negro member. With the
exception of a brief period from 1SS7 to
1SS!), this Is the first session in thirty-
two years when this has been the case,
The first colored man to be sent to
Congress was J. Willis Menard of New
Orleans, who was elected to Till a vacancy In 1S68. In IRTd Hiram R. Uevells
;ook his seat In tho Senate, the first
negro to be seated in that body.
Blanche K. Bru :e was the only other
negro to enter the Senate. The Forty-
Fourth Congress, which sat from JS75
to 1S77, may be called the black Congress, since there were eight members
In both branches.
There is an historical reason for the
baneful repute of the opal. Two or
three centuries ago the stone was popular In Europe, and the jewelers of Italy
were especially cunning In Its setting.
At the height of Its popularity came
the plague, which made havoc In Venice. Jt was noticed by some observant
person 'n lli;)t city that when a victim
was at the point of death, his opal, If
he wore one, brightened, while after
death it became dull. As this accession of brilliance Implied a sort of malignant purpose or Intelligence In the
stone, It was charged with the death of
Its owner. It never occurred to the
scientists of that lime to turn the Incident around the other way. and see if
• he patient had anything to do with
the opal. But that was the way of It:
the heightened fever Just before death
caused the stone, which Is affected by
heat, to become more brilliant, and the
chill and damp afterward dulled It.

Court etiquette and religious scruples
have hud an amusing tussle at The
Hague. The trouble arose when the
daughters of Dr. Kuyper, the Premier,
were invited to the first court ball ot
the season. Low-necked drosses were
commanded, but the Misses Kuyper decided that decollete dresses were inconsistent wiih their religious principles, They applied for a dispensation,
but received a curt reply from ine
mistress of the ceremonies, who declared that time-honored customs of
the Dutch court must be adhered to.
Dr, ICuypcr made direct representations on the subject lo Queen WUhel-
mlna, with the result that a compromise was arranged, The Misses Kuyper will slay away from the ball, but
will take tea with their sovereign in
high-necked dresses the same afternoon.
The "Tailor and Cutter," which has
been accustomed to describe Joseph
Chamberlain as' the pink of fashion,
has this to say of the Colonial Secretary in a recent Issue: "We are sorry
to note that Mr. Chamberlain Is developing quite a stoop, and fear he Is
losing some of his old-time smartness.
It Is true that his monocle Is still In ita
old place, but we miss the familiar
orchid, and, as we have examined hlj
garments, we could not but feel that
conservatism was sadly apparent, for
there was much In them that was not
up to date." Mr. Chamberlain's coat
lapels, says the "Tailor and Cutter,"
are plain, heavy, and disfigured by a
long, gaping breast-pocket, like some
ugly wound, calling for assistance. Tne
washing vest of Mr. Chamberlain, the
paper adds, was quite out of harmony
with his coat, while his trousers were
wide and unshapely.
