Mines and Smelters
Annual Tour of George S. Waterlow,
of the Snowshoe.
Work Will be Continued All Winter at the Betts and Hesperus Group—Shipments Will be Increased
From the Oro Denoro.
L, H. MofTntt, seoretary of the
Rathmullen Mitres, Ltd., accompanied by C. W. Wood, one of the
directors, visited tbe mines last
we.'k. The object of tbeir visit was
to look over the property with a view
to commencing work at once.
* *   *
At the (iranby mines the payroll
now numbers 300 men, and the
Mother bode 1ms 110 men employed.

i'has. Simpson is busy doing assessment work on the Iron Chief
fraction, adjoining the Betts nnd
Hesperus group, on Hardy mountain,   and   lias  struck   some good
len group in Summit camp, and
left Monday lor bis home, Mr.
Moffatt is seoretary and also a di-]
rector of the Rathmullen Mines,
Ltd., and stated that-work would
be commenced just as soon as satisfactory arrangements were made
with the shareholders to pool their
shares until December, 11)04.

Dr. G. W. Averill went up to the
Minnie mine on Monday to commence development work. The Minnie is situated in Summit camp,
and iscloso to thc Finnin, which is
now An the shipping list.
The Belts ami Hesperus eompany
nuge of ore ready for shipping. In
regard to the proposed, amalgamation of the Sunset with the British
Columbia Copper company, owning
the Mother Lode mine and smelter,
Mr. Waterlow stated that negotiations were in the same condition ns
three or four months ago, but he believed that it wns the true policy for
Boundary properties to work together in their smelting arrangements, and with the exception of
the (iranby eompany hardly any of
them would have enough of all kinds
of ore to operate individual smelters.
*    *   *
Smith Curtis, of Rossland, spent
Sunday in the city. He left Monday for the Oro Denoro mine, where
work on a large scale is being rushed.
The mine keeps looking better ali
the time. Tbey are shipping 150
tons per day, and will increase the
output to 200 tons daily within the
next ten (lavs.
The P. Burns & Co. meat market
of Ibis eity must be doing a thriving
business. It is generally reported
about town that tbe new shop
opened a couple of weeks is a
branch of that concern. Is it possible that the big monopoly became
frightened at the prospect of rail
competition?
Midway to Vernon
Mayor Smailes Seeks Eastern   Capital for West Fork Road.
Will Endeavor to Make Satisfactory Financial Arrangements for the Construction of This Important Road.
Mayor Smailes, of Greenwood,
left for the east last Friday for the
purpose of interesting capital in the
Midway & Vernon railway. He will
visit Montreal and New York, and
his trip may possibly be extended
to England.
Tiie Dominion bonus for the road
will lie about 8(1000 a mile, and this
with the provincial aid should encourage capital in the enterprise.
This is particularly true when it is
e msiderod that the railway will open
up one of the most promising mining districts of the province, and at
the same time connect the rich
Okanagan fanning country with the
boundless Boundary, thus giving the
very best market for Canadian pro-
duets. By connecting with the (.'. P.
R. at Vernon the road will also afford the shortest route to the coast,
being 2-1 hours shorter than the circuitous route via Revelstoke.
If satisfactory financial arrangements arc made active construction
j will be commenced in early spring.

The ore was hauled by wagon to

as one of the directors of the Le Roi
mine at Rossland, left for his home
in England lust Friday, after spending a week in that camp. This was

Police  Magistrate   Boultbee,   of

thai capacity who bus lost his seal
since the new government bus taken
office. Police Magistrate Johnson,
of this city, has been notified thai
bis services nre no longer required,
and W. li. Cochrane has been named
as bis successor. Verily, tbe path
of tiie miin depending on the political powers that be for a living is nn
uncertain one, and often comes to a

Evidently Mr. McBride considered
Hint, a newcomer was best entitled

Others think differently, and The

the ninny Conservative lawyers of
Grand Forks will repudiate the in

stronger claims than Mr. Cochrane
to tbe office.
How old is Ann? It is a simple
proposition. Tbe whole country is
now  working on   it,  anil women's
clubs promise to take it up. Here is
the problem: Mary is 2-1 years old.
Mary is twice ns old as Ann was
when Mnry was as old ns Ann is now.
How old is Ann? Simple, isn't it?
.Instils easy ns rolling off a log. Of
course you'll say Ann is 12. Then
you will think it over awhile and
discover that Ann is 1(1. Then you
.vill kick yourself for your stupidity
and confess that thc girls are tho
same age. A moment later a great
light will dawn nnd you wi'l see
clearly that Ann is is. liul hefore
you go to bed your mind will still
be full of uncertainties, and you will
proceed to work out the problem by
algebra, The problem flrstcame up
at Harvard. Football practice wns
suspended while it wns being worked
out. Then the New York papers
nre crowded with solutions, nil different. From New York tbe fever
spead, Keen Philadelphia awoke,
while Chicago has gone so far that
tho Tribune has a long editorial on
tho subject. It's ii plain proposition, bend it over carefully. How
old is Ann?

TUESDAY,   NOVEMBER 3,  1903
It is diffleult to see how Mr.
Houston can carry out his avowed
intention of supporting the Conservative party, and nl the same time
act in opposition to Premier McBride, Evidently John has forgotten all about party lines being introduced at the recent election, lie
still imagines thai be is a political
free lance.
PREMIER    MoBniDK's    policy,    as
outlined in dispatches from the capital, should satisfy the most ardent
Tory. If he succeeds iii floating
the million-dollar loan hefore ho
pulls off ihe bye-elections, the constituencies that arc reopened will undoubtedly make merry on "road
appreciations" during the campaign,
but the chances are that a iiiiilion-
dollar loan will he insufficient to

Money and Dreams.
He settled himself In his roomy chair
In his big, old house, where he bad
lived so Ions that the city had grown
up away and beyond him, leaving
the house, which had been tn a
i'iishlonable neighborhood, no far
down town that there was tittle
more than the hum of business to
be heard all day nround It. The old
man's housekeeper brought him a cool
think, and one of his nephews came
tn to enquire how he bad htood the
unusual beat of the day.
He hud so many nephews and nieces
to look after his comfort. Some even
stayed In town all Bummer to be near
him. When they tried to persuade him
to go away for a little rest In the hot
weather he would say:
"Rest! Who wants rest? If you let
money rest It rusts—rusts! Turn It
over, keup turning It over; It grows. It
grows!" And be would add that tha
summer was the best time of all for
work. The old financier was the possessor of many millions. But he walked
alone. Tib Is evening he sat In the twilight whioh settled itself hot and thick
about him. The night was bringing no
cooling breath. Tbe roar of the metropolis was dying away In tired sobs
outside The city's life seemed sapped
with the heat. Even the old man, who
never stopped his work for anything,
reallze'd that It was unusually hot tonight. 'He fanned himself with hts
newspaper and took a sip from the
glass which stood near him on the table.
He closed his eyes. He felt such a
Strange sense of oppression. No, he
was not dizzy. It had passed. lie
upened his eyes and put up his hand to
unfasten Ids collar. At his neck he
touched a twisted cord of silk that was
around it. He pulled at the cord and
drew out Us length. From It hung a
ring—a silver ring—old-fashioned and
worn, and on It two raised hearts Jy-
lng against each other and rubhed
smooth by time.
He sat now with hts eyes closed
again and his hand folded over the
ring on his breast. lie dreamed once
more, and it was his last dream. It
was summer—yes—but It was nearly
fifty years ago. The dust and roar of
the city gave way to the scent and
quiet of an old garden; the heat to the
dew of a country evening, its breeze
lightly moving the leaves of the trtes
and fluttering the ruflles of a girl's
muslin frock, with Its pattern of summer blossoms upon It.
A boy—such a bfjylsh country boy-
took the silver ring, then new and
shining, from his pocket and put It on
the hand of the girl tn the llowered
muslin frock. Then they kissed each
other, and the girl fell to sobbing, with
her arms about her companion's neck,
and he spoke:
"Never mind, dear; Annie, dear. I
am going away Lo make a fortune, and
I'm coming buck for you, and we will
be married, and I will take you away
to the city, and you will be rich anu
have everything you want."
"But I don't like the city. I should
be so afraid and so confused, and yuu
might not love me there as you do
now here In the country. People In
the city forget each other so."
"No, they don't; not If they really
love each other, and I love you. Nothing can ever make me forget you. See,
not as long as evening comes after the
day nnd the stars come with It." ,,
They kissed each other again.
The ring came back to him In a letter with a flower from Annie's grave.
Never once did he go to seek the
grave to rest by It a moment. Work
became his love and gold the star Lhat
guided him.
Now he clasped the silver ring tighter, tighter. By nnd by he gasped and
fell forward. His clasp relaxed; he
sighed once, a deep sigh, then lay thore
quite still. And later they found him

A Prophecy Fulfilled.
ON no less authority than that ol
Mr. Justin McCarthy it Is stated
that, with the exception of tho
King of Sweden, a descendant of
Bernndotte, whom Napoleon raised
from the ranks and Inter made king,
there Is not a single Important ruler in
Kurope who Is not descended from
Mary, Queen of Scots. In "Macbeth,"
which was evidently written with the
Idea of courting the favor of James I.,
the first Stuart ruler of England,
Shakespeare puts Into the month of the
witches this prophecy to Banquo, from
whom the Stuarts are by legend de«
ncended: "Your children shall be
khiRs." Even the most obsequious of
courtiers could not have anticipated
jiow literally truo this compliment to
the Smarts through King James WSJ
to prove. It Is certainly a curl is hts-
torlcal fart that it..- dynasiy of the
Stuarts, "In many ways the worst dynasty," as Mr. McCarthy says, "that
ever ruled over England, "should have
left so many descendants among the
L'filgnlng  houses  of  F.uropo.
Meantime'twere is for the student jf
medical anthroprdngy the spectacle ot
a series of Inbreeding Intermarrlngei
thnt demonstrate;; the dangers ami effects of marital consanguinity. Perhaps tbe lesson of the necessity for ex-
erclBlng more care as regards the relationship and other qualities of marl*
tal partners may thus be taught by example, If It cannot be enforced by tb«
legal measures that are now so commonly suggested. In a word, the history oT the present reigning families of
Europe Is an open book In which ha
who runs may rend the evils of mar-
ilage where new blood Is not constant*
ly Introduced to modify the degenerative tendencies of the original stock.
Tne lesson may be learned better from
a "horrible example" thnn from the
cold logic if statistics on the subject

Anecdotal.
In one of the Philadelphia colleges a
profflasor of chemistry asked a student
the other day: "Now, suppose you were
called to a patient who had .swallowed
a heavy dose of oxalic acid, what
would you administer?'' "I would nd-
mjnlster the sacrament," replied the
student, who, hy the way, Is said to be
studying for the ministry, afid takes
chemistry because it Is obligatory.
It Is reported that Innocent IV. and
Thomas Aquinas were standing together as the bags of treasure were
being carried In through the gates of
the Lateraii. "You si •," observed the
Pope, with a smile, "the day Is past
when the Church could say, 'Silver and
gold have I none.' " "Yes, holy father,"
was the saint's reply, "and the day Is
past also when the Church could say to
the lame man, 'Rise and walk.' "
W. J. Bryan told a good story at hla
own expense In New York recently: "I
spoke during the campaign In a little
Illinois town. In front of me sat a
man rigidly attentive. He drank In
every word I said; I think .he had
drunk in something else besides. When
I finished he came up and wrung my
hand. 'Mr. Bryan,' he said, 'you are
wonderful, wonderful. You are the
first man I ever saw ,vho,e b»«* teeth
I could see all the time he waa speaking.' "
President Itoosovelt is fond of telling
any stay at his own expense. That
which he enjoys most Is Ihe following:
Former G-cviattor wise had told the
President that It was the general opinion, so far as he had heard, that he
would go cjnwn to posterity as a Washington. The President replied tfcat he
was delighted to hear that. "But."
added Wise, In a serious m«nner,
"whether it will be as a George or a
Booker T. I don't know " The President is said to have laughed so •*•,.'-
tlly over this that Wise became
alarmed. '
Dr. Rixey, who for some years was
the private physician In the McKinley
household, says that when the late
President's mother sat down for rhe
first time to a White House dinner
what seemed to impress her most wa-
the prodigal supply of cream. Sli^
commented on Its abundance, and th-wi
added: "Well, William, at last I know
what they mean when they speak of
the Cream of Society." The President
laughed. "I admit," said he, "\%st
there seems to be an extravagant array of cream on the table, but yo*
know, mother, we can afford to ketf »
cow, now,"
An amusing story is being told of Si:
Henry Howorth, who, besides being the
author of many scientific works, ha«
written an elaborate historical book entitled "History of the Mongols." I*.
seems that the other day Sir Henry
found himself at a dinner party next
to a lady who determinedly talke-'
dogs to him from the soup to th-
dessert. Bather bored, Sir Henry a'
last remarked that though his friend;
somewhat unkindly declared that he
could chatter on any subject, he v/as
obliged to own that he was uttarly a-
sea on the topic of dogs. The lady
looked astounded. "Why, nre you not
Sir Henry Howorth? I understoor.
from our host that you were the author of a learned book on Mongrels,
and I was so delighted, as I am s'J
interested in all kinds of dogs."
A story is told of a certain English
bishop well known for his verbosity
who rose to address the House o;
Lords on a very Important occasion. "'
will divide my speech under twelve
heads," he said, to the discomfort ol
his audience, The Marquis of Salisbury begged to be allowed to Intorposi
with a little nnecdote. "A friend ot
mine was returning home late one
night," he said, "when opposite St.
Paul's he saw an intoxicated man trying to ascertain the time on the big
clock there, Just then it began to
strike and slovly tolled out twelve.
The man listened, looked hard nt tha
clock and said, 'Confound you, why
couldn't you have said that all at
once?'" The bishop heartily joined in
the laughter which followed, and took
the hint contained In the story.
Dr. John Kerr, the well-known Scottish school inspector, was once faced
In a Banffshire manse by this question
put to him by the lady of the house on
behalf of her Inquisitive son. "Mr.
Kerr, Ik It true that the devil goes
about like a roaring lion?" "It must
be true," he replied, "for It Is In tne
Bible." A shrill voice came from th-1
corner: "Then wha keeps his fire In
when he's gain, aboot?" Dr. Kerr also
tells an anecdote of a woman who had
Just lost her husband] nnd ihe minister
calling to eondole with her found her
fitting in front of a large bowl of
porridge. "Terrible loss, terrible loss,"
sighed tho minister. "Aye," was the
reply, "it's a terrible loss to me, I've
|UBt been greetlif a' nlcht, and ns sune
as I finish this wee drap porridge, I'm
fUSt gaun to begin ngaln."

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work unci promptness in

time is not {gemd service ; but the two combine to

twentieth century business man. That we have
