Two Hardy Mountain Properties Acquired by Boston Capitalists.
Granby" Dividend
The Shaft on the Hesperus Group Has  Reached a Depth
of Sixty Feet, and the Bottom Is in
Solid Ore.
Important mining deals still continue to he made in the vicinity of
Gland Korks. In the early part of
the week the IClla fraction and the
Dumphree, two promising propcrt'es
owned hy Joe Gruno, and situated
on Hardy mountain southeast of the
Betts and Hesperus group, was acquired hy Boston capitalists, who nre
also interested in other mining properties in the Boundary.
The terms of the agreement   call
for the   i iciliato  development of
the claims, whioh will he done hy
putting a force of men to work without delay.
The  surface   showing  on   these
Hardy mountain properties is excellent, nnd it is thought the same
lend which wns struck on thc Itcs-
pernus group will he encountered on
thc Ella fraction and the Dumphree.
For private reasons the consideration is not made public, hut it is
presumed that the price was a good
one.
On the ltctts ami Hesperus group
Ihe shaft is down to a depth of 00
feet, and the bottom of the shaft is
in solid ore. Very little doubt, is
entertained ns to the ultimate outcome of the property. It is practically assured that with further development a good paying mine will
be opened up.

A recent issue of tbe Strathcona
Plaiudealer brings tbis news of a
former (Irand Forks business man:
Mr. P. .1. White, who is about to
open a jewelry store at Fort Saskatchewan, met with a serious misfortune
yesterday forenoon. His household
effects arrived recently at Strathcona
nnd be hnd come up from the Fort
with a team nnd wagon to transport
tbem to bis new locution. As be descended thc first dip of thc hill toward the bridge something went
wrong with the harness and the load
pitched over into tbe ravine. Mi-.
White jumped for his life, and being
a   man   of   200 pounds weight, he
came upon his feet very heavily,
spraining one ankle very badly, injuring the other one, also his hip
and shoulder and bruising his face
badly. The load fell ou the horses.
hut fortunately their injuries are not
serious. Dr. Molntyrc chanced to
he driving past at the lime and
proved the guild Samaritan, lie
took the unfortunate man to th
hospital and dressed bis wounds.
I'hc goods, which included a line
piano and other valuable furniture,
were turned over to the Edmonton
Cartage company to he eared for.
Mr. White will not soon forget his
painful pioneer experience in north-
. r.i Alberta.

the new firm will be Davis, McLellan & Morrison.

Some of the prominent business
men of the city say that it does not
pay them to advertise in tbe local
papers. If the local papers were to
insert all the advertisements sehl
tbem from eastern departmental
stores, these merchants would (ind
their profits going oust, nnd they
would soon be registering a kick
with the newspaper men for diverting trade from them. And yet they
refuse to advertise themselves!
Come, get into the gniue. Lot tin1

Pkoi'i.h well informed on the railway situation believe thnt thc
$7,000,000 in Great Northern securities recently placed on the New
York market are to he used for the
extension of the system. Mr. Hill
on several occasions lately has
stated that the only important extension the Great Northern had in
immediate contemplation was the
construction of the V., V. & F. railway from the Kootenavs to the
const. In this section, especially,
the belief is very strong that
the money is intended for no
other purpose than thc extension of the V.; V. it IS., and many
are certain that grading will be commenced early in the spring. Wl.en
Ihe road is constructed it will open
up one of thc richest mining, agricultural, grazing nnd timbering sections of the province. The building
of the road should be followed by
one of the liveliest booms that tbe
province has yet experienced, as
there arc opportunities for ninny
profitable enterprises in the Okanagan and Similkameen sections.

A Mouse Mill.
Thrift ia generally acknowledged to bo
one of the leading characteristics of the
natives of Fifeshlre, and it never waa
more forcibly exemplified than in the
person of David Hatton, a native of Dun-
firiiiline, who actually proved that eveii
mice those acknowledged pests of mini-
kind, could be made not only to emu
their own living, but also to yield a respectable Income to their owners, sikys
the "Scotsman "
About the year 1820 this gentleman
actually erected a small mill at Dunfermline for the manufacture of thread—a
mill worked entirely by mice. It was
while visiting Perth prison in 1812 that
Mr, Hatton first conceived this remarkable idea of utilizing mouse power. In
an old pamphlet of the time, "The Curiosity Coffee Ronni." lie iwvfl an Acctvint
of the way in which the idea dawned ;n
him.
"In the summer of the yp.1T
1812," he wrote, "I had occasion to be In Pertff, and when
inspecting the toys ami trinkets that
were manufactured by the French prisoners in the depot there hit attention
was involuntarily attracted by a little
toy house with a wheel in the gable of
it thnt wns runtTinir raptdlv round, impelled by tti** insignificant gravity of a
common house mouse. ' For a shilling 1
purchased housef mouse nnd wheel. Inclosing it in a handkerchief, on lny journey homeward I wns compelled to contemplate its favorite amusements Hut
how to apply half-ounce power, which la
the weight of a mome, to a useful pur
pose was the difficulty. At length the
manufacturing of sewing thread seetne<!
the most practicable."
Mr. Mutton had one mouse thnt rati
the amazing distance of eighteen miles n
day, but he proved that nn ordinary
moUM could run ten nnd one-half miles
on an average. A halfpenny's worth of
oatmeal wns sufficient for its support
for thirty-five day* during whlrft it ran
73(1 half miles. He hnd actually two
mice constantly employed in the making
of sewing thread for more than a year.
The mom* threadmill waa so constructed
that the common home mouse was enabled to mnke atonement to society for
pimt offences hv twlstlig, tvining, and
reeling from 111 to 120 threads a day.
Sundays not excepted.
To perform thi** task the little pede*
trinn hnd to run ten and one half miles,
and this journey it performed with ease
every day. A halfpenny'* worth of oat
meni served one nf the«e threadmill fill
prits for the long period of five weeks
In that time it made 3.:C*0 thread* ol
twenty-five inches, and ns s penny wn*-
paid to women for every hank made In
the ordinarv wny the mouse, at that
rate, earned 0 pence every six week-*
Jutt one farthing a dnv. or 7 shilling-
and 0 pence a vear. Taking fl pence of
for bonrd nnd allowing 1 shilling for ma
chinery, there wns cImt yenrly prof!'
from each mouse of fl "hi-llngs.
Mr. Hatton firmly Inten^'-d to ipp!>
for the loan of the old empty enthedrn'
In Dunfprmline. which would have held
be calculated, ten thnu-nnd mouse mills
sufficient room being left for keepers nm
some hundreds of speetntnrs. Death
however, overtook the inventor befnn
bis marvelous project could be carried
out.

A Matrimonial  Entanglement.
In "Chapters From My Diplomatic
Life," which Andrew D. White, tho
United States diplomatist, is contributing to "The Century Illustrated Magazine," there occurs an interesting reminiscence regarding thc working of the German marriage laws:-—
"One morning a man came rushing in
exclaiming: 'Mr. Minister. I am in the
worst fix that any decent man wan ever
In. I want you to help mc out of i,t;'
and he then went on with a bitter tirade against everybody and everything in
the German Empire.
"When his wrath had effervesced somewhat he stated his case as follows:-—
'Laat year while travelling through Germany I fell in love with a young German lady, and after my return to America became engaged to Her, I have now
come for my bride. The wedding 1b fixed
for next Thursday; our steamer passages are taken a day or two later, and
I find that the authorities will not allow
me to marry unless I present a multitude of papers such as 1 never dreamed
oft Some of them it will take months
to get, and some I can never
get. My intended bride in In distress;
her family evidently distrust me; the
wedding is postponed indefinitely; and
my business pnrtner is cabling me to
come back to America as soon as possible. I am asked for a baptismal certificate—a Taufsehein. Now, ao far as
I know, I was never baptised. I am required to present a certificate showing
the consent of my parents to my marriage—I, a man thirty years old, and in
a large business of my own! I am asked
to give bonds for the payment of my
debts in Germany. I owe no such debt3;
but I know no one who will give such a
bond. I am notified that the banns must
be published a certain number of times
before the wedding. What kind of a
country is this, anyhow!'
"We did the best we could. In an Interview with the Minister of Public
Worship I was able to secure a dispensation from the publishing of the bannsj
then a bond was drawn up, which I
signed, and thus settled the question regarding possible debts in Germany. As
to the baptismal certificate, I ordered
inscribed, on the largest possible sheet of
official paper, the gentleman's affidavit
that In the State of Ohio where he was-
born no Taufsehein, or baptismal ccrtifl
cate, was required at the time of hi-
birth, and to this was affixed with plenty
of wax the largest seal of the Legation
The form of the affidavit may he judgni
peculiar, but it was thought best not to
startle the authorities with the uumi--
sion that the ma**, nad not been baptise*
at all. They ejUld easily believe that »
State like Ohio, which some of their
doubtless regarded as still in the back
woodaand mainly tenanted by the abor
igines, might have omitted in days gon<
by to require a Taufsehein, but that a'
unbaptised Christian should offer himsi-1
to be married in Germany would pe:
bapi have' so paralyzed their powers o
belief that permission for the raarriag
light never have been secured.
"In this and various other ways w
•vercame the difficulties, and though tl'
veddiiyj did not take place upon the at
jointed day, and the return to Ameri'-.
iad to be deferred, the couple at lasi
fter marriage first before the public ar
'horlties and then in church, were ah'
to depart in peace.'1
Tbe Blighting of His Fame.
"Ruined I''  he cried, as he dashed
paper to the floor and trampled upon .'.

"Dearest, what disaster is this!" 1
was his fond wife whf> gasped the que
(ion, in tones of anguish.
"A disaster which is irretrievable;
calamity which will crush me to tl
earth!" He ran his white, thin flnge
through his luxuriant crop of long ar

ten-and-a-half the bottle of black, wa

"Oh, Horatio!" she murmured, and

Up to Him.
"Edward," asked Genevieve Zoremus,
•do you think a girl should propose T"
"Why, no, Indeed I It is beneath woman's dignity."
"There, now!" snid the gentle girl;
"I told mamma she was wrong. She said
that when a young mnn came to see a
girl every night in the week for two
years, and stayed for dinner every Sun*
day, and smoked her father's cigars, and
always happened around whenever we
had any company, so he would be invited
to go to the theater with us, It was the
girl's privilege to take it for granted
that he was sincere in his attentions and
ask him whether lie preferred a wedding-trip, or would rather just settle
down to home life in a neat little cot*
tage."
Edward knew a hint when a brick waH
was alioved over on bim.—"Judge."
A Unique Luncheon.
The Paris correspondent of the "Pall
Mall Gazette" recently attended a luncheon given by M. t Deasing-Whitmor»i,
which was distinctly original. The tabic.
lie says, took the form of a boat, and the
waiters were dressed as sailors. There
was a distinctly nautical flavor about
the whole thing, and during the hots
d'ouvres and dessert a sailor's chorus
was sung. Not being a particularly
good sailor, the perpetual motion of the
table—which, It appears, took some time
to get In working order—was not for me
the most enjoyable sensation of the oo*
oasion. I wai> able, however, to appreciate the dexterity 71th whioh it had been
planned, as not an article ever roiled—or
even attempted to roll—off the ta-bR
To make the soene more realistic a canvas was hung on the walls, on which was
painted » somewhst rough sea. The
guests numbered twenty-four, and eaoh
•was nreaented with a small compass.
Their Great Sorrow.
"I am so worried about baby," lays
the fond young mother to the proud
young father. "What's the matter! He
Isn't sick, Is be?" asked the husband,
with some natural alarm showing itself
on his countenance. "No, but he is beginning to talk, and "   "And what?
Does he have an impediment in hi*
■speech t" "No. Worse than that He
says things that don't sound any more
sensible than the choruses to the popular songs I" That night, with strained,
tearless eyes, a man and woman sat by a
Httle crib, wondering why this great sorrow should come upon them.—Chicago
"Tribune."
Poet (with emotion)—All people seem

GOOD SERVICE iB composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not fgood service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
