About a  fortnight ago word came to Mr. H. C.  Pollock from the head office of the  company to resume operations, and  work was commenced with a-force of  8 men, whicli will be added to shortly.  Former development work done under direction-of F. M. Wells was closed  "down at the end of December of, last  year, and left the mine with various  excellent showings at various points  i4 ���������** ���������  on its properties. It w;is thought at  the time of closing down in December  last that the rails would "he laid on the  /V.V. &E. to Hedley in the spring, and  had this been done there is little doubt  that work would have been in progress  long before this. Now, however, they  have decided to go on under the same  old disability. ,       ������  The Kingston group consists of the  Kingston,   Metropolitan, War Horse  and Grand View mineral claims, and  most of the old  workings as well as  the mine buildings are situated on the  Kingston itself.   The property is much  closer to  the town  than the  Nickel  Plate,  being on  the steep mountain  side about 2000 feet above the valley.  The mountain side is so steep where  the mine buildings are located close  by a spiing, that cribbing and grading  was necessary in order to get a sufficiently level foundation.   The buildings are made of peeled logs and are  neatly put together.    They can afford  cooking and sleeping accommodation  for a crew  of twenty men or more,  whenever it is decided  to employ as  huge a crew as that. -  The property is owned by the Kingston Gold & Copper Mining Company,  Lunited, incorporated under the Companies Act of British Columbia, and  most of the stock is owned' in Quebec.  The president of the company is Mr.  W. A. Marsh, and with him are associated the Messrs. Boswell'.'of Quebec,  while Mr. Fernie, of Victoria, has a  large   holding.  Regarding the Kingston itself upon  which most of the work lias been done  some extracts from an-engineer's report give as follows:  "There is a very strong vein on the  Kingston claim,  showing; where exposed-by open cuts, to run about 30 to  35 feet iu width.   Against the hanging  wall,  this vein contains from 44 to 0  feet  of ~a*copper   chute,   containing  chalcopyrite and  pyrrhotite, and on  tlie foot-wall there are from 8 to 12 feet  of an .arsenical iron "ore," carrying good  gold values ;  the latter is very similar  to the rich Nickel Plato, ore.   Between  the above chutes or pay  portions the  vein   is  by no means  barren,   being  mineralized throughout,  and in some  parts.being well streaked with copper  and arsenical iron pyrites.   . On  this  vein most of the development  work  has been done,  and it is exposed in  tunnels and open cuts for a length, on  surface, of, over 400 feet above the No.  1 tunnel, which is the lowest working.  At this point, 400.feet above the tunnel, the lead is covered with wash, but  farther up the hill about 600 feet it is  again found and exposed by open cuts.  The. continuity and width of this vein  are-remarkable and are most favorable  indications of its permanence in depth.  "There  is a difference of elevation  between the No, 1 tunnel on the Kingston  and the vein  where exposed on  the War Horse of about 1,450 feet,  so  that this great depth can  be obtained  on the property by adit tunnels.  "There is ample good timber on the  property for the. purposes of development.     I will conclude by saying that  I have formed a very high opinion of  the property, and I will be greatly  mistaken if it does not turn out to be  one of those good things that mining  men spend their lives in1 search of.  "When I,visited the property a year  ago I did not know of the existence of  the extremely valuable portion of the  vein on the foot-wall side���������I mean the  arsenical chute,���������and even then, and  only treeing the copper showing in the  tunnel No. 1,- I was greatly impressed  with its possibilities. Now I think  there is no-doubt that the Kingston  will make a very valuable mine, and  on' account of its easy development  ought to, be a. paying "proposition  from a very early stage."  The report further, tells of assay results from some six different samplings  at various parts of the work, and these  all'ranged in between $17.03 and $10.38.  DROWNING MEN GRASP STRAPS  How   Duncan~ Ross'   Paper   Tries   to  Cheer Drooping Spirits of His  Followers.  Duncan Boss is evidently in a hid  way ,when his paper will in all apparent seriousness try to make the public  believe that because L. W. Shatford  with Burrell it is the very opposite.  It was on Apvil 24th that .Bun-ell was  chosen as the Liberal-Conservative  candidate in Yale-Cariboo, and in the  month of June L. W. Shatford- went  through the Similkameen riding from  end to end receiving siich .assyrancejof  support for Mr. Bun-ell that .he is confident vof u good majority for him in  Similkameen. Again, L. W. Shatford  was not a candidate'for the nomination in Yale-Cariboo, and neither did  W. T. Sha l ford seek the nomination  although ���������many<,of his^ friends were  anxious* that he .-hould have it; but  'M.trttu Bun ell has no more loyal supporter in Yale-Cariboo to-day than W.  T. Shatfoid. Furthermore it is "a piece  of Tiflnmy rot about. Shatford spend-  rng his time at-prem nt, campaigning in  -Nova Scotia. His place for that is'in  Similkameen .and he is at the present  moment using tire utmost expedition  to get b.u k here so as to'have as much  time as post-ible before polling-day.  Tire issue of the writs a month earlier  than he was- counting on may have  disarranged hi-, plans somewhat; but his intention to be. (in'the ground  at'the ear liest possible inomt-nt to show  Duncan "Ross-that there is.noihi'ng he  could say anywhere eke that he is not  prepared to.^ay in Yale-Caiiboo.  A EUROPEAN  WAR SCARf  The Berlin Treaty, for.20 Yrs.  the Basis of Peace 'in  ���������'  Europe, Is Broken  *���������    -     .     Because  BULGARIA CLAIMS. INDEPENDENCE  From the Rule of Turkey: 'and Austria  .  ������������������.     , - ������.    - ������,  Has Annexed Bosnia ^and Herzegovina ��������� Servians Want -King Pete  to  Rescue  Bosnia..  \      *       MARTIN   BURRELL,  The Liberal-Conservative Candidate for Yale?Cariboo, and Next  Representative of This Riding.  Mr. BuitRELt, was. born in England, and came to Canada over thirty  years ago, when he engaged in the fruit-growing industry in the Niagara  peninsula in Ontario. In-that province-he was an able  speaker on .horticultural topics,' and was one of the.most acceptable lecturers at meetings of' institutes in each electoral-riding of  that province. With'the open our of tlie Boundary district lie canre to  British Columbia to engage in fruit ���������-,rowing, and has since heen recognized as 'ah* authority orr thai question, representing British Columbia in  England last winter. While'identity!'.!'.: hiuiseh' with tire Conservative,  party he has never been a violent partisan, and stands for placing politics  on a higher plane. Such a man would make an ideal representative for  Yale-Cariboo.     Do yourself credit by voting for him!  Like a thunderbolt outof a  (if the political condition of the Balkans-could by any stretch of,imagination ever be described* as such) came  the news that the treaty of Berlin had  been broken" into smithereens when  the Bulgarians declared their independence of the rule of Turkey, arrd  Austria-Hungary, emulating the example of the-early bird, proceeded to  gather in Bosnia arid Herzegovina.  Whether this portends a war- of any  magnitude will depend-on how-Turkey-  will be disposed to view the conduct of  Bulgaria, and whether other European"  powers that were party- to the Berlin  conference and the treaty which was...  tho outcome, will stand idly by and  watch Austria effect this coup.  Many fancy they see in it some of  the meddling intrigue of the Emperor  of Germany, and from this out the diplomats of all European powers will  be busy in the making up of new alliances and the patching up of old ones.  Jn Servia the war spirit is rampant  and Servians are calling upon King  Peter to buckle on his armor and go to  the. rescue of Bosnia. King "Peter is  one of the newest rulers of southern  Europe and was not too particular as  to the foul means employed to gain  his throne, but whether he would have,  as keen a relish for bloodshed in warfare on the frontier as for that spilled  in a private palace in the removal of  those who stood between him and the  throne is another question.  The war scare has already had the  effect of tightening up money, and already some of the colonial loans in  London awaiting subscription are experiencing the difficulty attendant  upon financing in times ofstress.  FERNIE FIRE RELIEF FUND.  happens to be at-present in the east,  there is not perfect accord between  him and Mr. Burrell.    The Times say.-:  THIS PUTS IT EXACTLY.  Mr. MacHaffie has handed in the  following as the-donations towards the  Fernie fire relief fund which were deposited Avith him, and this amount he  has forwarded to the relief committee.  Fortunately the Daly Reduction Co.  had contributed '$1,000 towards the  fund earlier on. The donations taken  by Mr. MacHaffie and acknowledged  herewith are:  Herbert Clare  A. Megraw  $5.00  3.00  $8.00  MARY AND HER LAMB.  (Keremeos Trumpet.)

W. Shatford has gone to Nova  Scotia to take par-tin the Federal campaign. Mr. Shatford failed to get  the nomination Tor Yale-Cariboo and  Martin Burrell must play the game  without him.

I Tire weakest part of Duncan Ross'  ��������� address on Monday night was bis clos-  ! ing appeal to the electors in which he  'said: -'The election will be deferred.  j Sir Wilfrid Laurier- is certain to be re-  ! turned to power and I can accomplish  more for- you than anyone else." It  j was equivalent to saying :   "I have the  cards stacked  against  my  opponent.  j Join  me in the game and you will get  r rai-r-oiV."    It is an appeal  that will  p;:eai to the honest miners and  ranchers  of   tin  h-'ieve  in -p"  plaving  Similkameen.   They  lying the game hard but  fair.

RESULT OF G. T. P. LOOTING  Even if  public  sentiment in  Canada has become   so   thoroughly calloused as to condone  the most flagrant cases of grafting,    plundering    the    public  treasury    and    making   away  ���������with  valuable   resources   that  are the heritage  of the  people,  there other interests  that may  be injuriously affected,thereby,  and these are apt  to  be heard  from.    A few months ago, public  attention    was  called to a  matter   which    should   deeply  concern every elector in Canada  and that was the "grafting that  has been   going  on  in  connection with  the building  of the  Grand Trunk Pacific,  by which  political favorites  of  the government were given  contracts  for building certain  portions of  the road, and by dishonest classification of the work are being  paid the price of rock-work  for  handling earth.    The man who  accused   them  of  this   was an  engineer in charge  of a section  upon    which  stealing    oi   this  kind was going  on,  and  while  the      investigation     (so-called)  which   dealt  with  the    matter  was tai-.-eu by the  servile  press  supporting the government  to  be a vindication of the administration,    the     public     learned  enough .;() know that  all is not  sweet a:id all  is  not  sound   in  connect!.>u with it.  A .sii:-;-icious feature of the in-  vestigat ion was  that  Hodgson  was   (!'���������/!god    about    with    the  usual restrictions for stifling inquiry   winch   lias  been   in  evidence in all cases where wrongdoing  was sought to be punished.    If  Hodgson  had  been  required   only  to   prove    wrong  classiilcation and a fraud  upon  the    country    because    of this  wrong    classification,    the  evidence lie presented  would have  been sufficient to prove his case;  but  instead   of that   the corn-  mission   appointed   to  investigate required him to prove the  correctness of all the allegations  set forth in a newspaper interview which he claimed  did riot  correctly represent, what he said.  Neither did the commission deal  fairly by him  in  denying him  full access to departmental records as he should  have had,  II. Mitchell. Under diversified artcles  we find '���������Simon Fraser" by E. O. S.  Schoh-field, Librarian of- British Columbia, whose intimacy with the..subject has enabled himvto give-to the  public a splendid memoir of the celebrated    explorer.

The following.are the readings showing temperatui-e,. etc., for the week  ending Oct. 10:"  Oct  HIGHLY  COLORED    HISTORIES,  The reports of Mr. Ross'" meetings  at-Keremeos arrd Hedley, sent to the  Vernon Okanagan, presumably by its-  representative, Mr. G. A. Harris, went  along way towards justifying- 'the  Star's reference to that gentleman's  connection with a balloon factory.  The Keremeos meeting is described irr  the Okanagan as being the biggest  everheld in the town, arrd yet sorrre  who were present, and on whose, word  reliance can be placed, have assured  the Gazette that it was altogether- a  tame al'rair , and fell a long distance  short of the McBride���������Curtis meeting,  both with regard to number present  arid interest displayed.  The Medley meeting is described as  "tilling the hall to its ulrirostcapacity."  That sort of shouting may go down  with readers around Vernon who had  no opportunity of knowing airy better,  but it is certainly not calculated to inspire much confidence in'the minds of  those at Keremeos and Hedley who  had an opportunity to sec; and judge  for themselves.  And if they cannot keep n little  nearer to the truth in a simple matter  of this kind, why should they he believed in what was told to the audience  by Mr. Ross.  All meetings in Hedley during last  campaign, whether Liberal or Conservative were/much better attended, and  keener interest shown than the meeting which heard Mr. Ross here on the  (ith the most conspicuous features of  which were its frigidity and the lameness of the defence put up by the  speaker.  , AT THE MINK  Maximum  Minim, unr  4  ..'-.- .   52 .     ...  :>B  ���������o  ..     - 52       .:  "  30  G  '54'      ..  27  "7  ..-���������      56  33  s -  ...;-:. 00   ���������  ���������-..;  ��������� 38  8  ...    .  50 ���������     ..  35  10  58  -    37  Average maximum temperature 55.42  Average minimum do 33.28  Mean temperature 4-1.35  Rainfall for the,week   .       inches.

Thurburn Conn to Miss  Margaret Keith. ,  in  aud around Penticton during ;the^  past week was the rather unexpected  visit of the -Governor-General, ,. Earl.  Grey, rind suite, -comprised -is follows :  Lord Stanhope;  Mr.' Harold Lowiher,  brother of Mr: Gerald Lowther, speak:  er in the British  House of Commons ;  Mr. Benson, Earl Grey's nephew, and  Captj. Pickering,  of the Scots Greys,  aide-de-camp to His Excellency; a corporal and three troopers of the R.N.  W. Mounted Police accompanying the  party as escort.    A telegram  was received late on Monday night announcing His Excellency's intended visit, and  on Tuesday  morning the  merchants  and business men of the town hurriedly hung out bunting aird hoisted flags  above their stores arid-offices, atrd in a  short time the town looked very gay.  The party .was timed to arrive in Penticton "at" 2:-J0, and an excellent lunch  was in readiness at the Hotel Penticton at that hour.    It was.close on five  o'clock,  however,  before the visitors  appeared, and by that time most of the"  people who had turned out to  take in  the excitement had wandered back to  their afternoon  tea, having given the  Earl's visit up as a bad job.   It's a pity  His Excellency was not on time as he  really missed a most enthusiastic reception, but the old maxim "Hope deferred nraketh the' heart'grow sad,"  answers "here as elsewhere.    As soon  as possible after Earl Grey's arrival,  he and his staff,  accompanied by Mr.  W. T. Shatford, Dr. R. B. White, Mr.  3'. R. Mitchell and your correspondent,  took a short drive round the orchards  on the bench.   As! it was dark when  His Excellency' came here two years  ago he had no idea of the extent of  Penticton's fruit lands,  and. he was  very agreeably surprised at what he  saw during the course of the drive,  stopping the rig several times to ask  questions about different orchards and  complimenting Mr. Shatford on some  of those being looked after by the S.  O. Land Company.  He remarked once  that "he only wished he were twenty-  five years  younger arrd he worrld sell  some of his turnip farms in Northumberland and invest in  Penticton  fruit  lands.   The drive had to be cut short  owing to the late hour, but evex-yone  seemed most enthuiiastic over  what  they had seen.    On arriving.' back in  town,  His Excellency and party proceeded on board the S. S. "Okanagan"  which had been placed at their disposal by the'C. P. R.    The boat .stayed at  the wharf all night and-left at 8:15  on Wednesday morning,  returning to  Penticton at 3 a. in.  Friday .morning.  The Governor-General and party, accompanied by several local gentlemen,  left here at 7 a. m. on Friday, driving  to   Dog  lake   where   Mr.  Webster's  launch was in readiness to take  them  to Okanagan Falls, the police with the  horses going, round by road.   Arriving  at the foot of the lake at 8:30,  a short  halt was called 'while His Excellency  inspected the Falls and made the acquaintance of some of the residents.  Starting again a.bout 9:45 through the  S. O. L. Co.'s upper ranch and past the  score or more farurs  and  orchards err  route, Fairview was reached by 12:30.  Here mine host Harry Jones of the  Golden Gate had an excellent lunch in  readiness, which everybody enjoyed.  After lunch His Excellency paid a. visit  to the government office and school,  leaving Fairview at 2 p.m. for Oroville  and arriving  there at 5 o'clock.    On  reaching Oroville the Governor-General aud party werrt on board the special  train which was in waiting ,at the station,- extending a cordial invitation to  the three gentlemen wlro accompanied  him  on his ride,   to go on board and  have tea with  him.    Before leaving.  His Excellency expressed his thanks to  'Mr. Shatford arrd  Dr. White for the  kind treatment accorded  himself and  party while at Penticton  and on the  trip south,  and said as  regards   the  country   he  had  ridden   through   he  thought it wonderful to think that the  beautiful valley from above Fairview  to the Boundary only awaited the necessary irrigation development and it  would then  be a vast fruit orchard.  The  train  left Oroville at G p. m. for  Nelson.  Tho Rifle Association have accepted  the Suiurnerlaud Association's challenge for a friendly shoot on Saturday  afternoon. Both teams will be represented by their eight best shots. The  ranges will be 200 and 500 yards.

Ants have no set time for brushing  up, but certain conditions plainly incite  thereto,   as   when  they   feel   particularly comfortable, as after eating ot  after awakening from or before going ,  to sleep.    The keen sense of disconi- |  fort aroused by the presence of dirt  incites to cleansing.    Often one may  see an ant suddenly pause in the midst  of the duties of Held or formicary and  begirt to corub herself; Here is a mountain mound maker driven by the passion of  nest building to the utmost  fervor of activity.   Suddenly she dropa  out of the gang of yellow workers arid,  mounting a nearby clod, poses upon her  hind legs and plies teeth, tongue and  comb.   For a few moments the aim of  being is centered upon that act. Around  her coign of vantage sweeps to and fro  the bustling host of builders with all  their energies  Hen to upon reconstructing their ruined city.    She**combs on  unconcernedly.    From top of head to  tip of hind legs she goes, smoothing  out rallied hairs and removing atoms,  of soil invisible to human eyes.    Her  toilet is ended at last���������H. C. McCook  in Harper's Magazine.  Ocean   Cannibals.'...'..  Such fierce carnivorous fishes ns'ex-  ist in the depths of the ocean are unknown at the surface; There is a  "black swallower" which devours other  finny creatures ten tinies as big as itself, literally climbing-over its victim,  first with one jaw and then with the  other. Another species is nearly all  mouth, and having no power of locomotion it lies buried in the soft ooze at  the bottom, its bead alone protruding,  . ready to engulf any prey that'may  wander into its cavernous jaws.' There  is a ferocious kind of shark, resembling  a huge eel. All of these monsters are  black as ink. Some of them are~per-  fectly blind, while others have enormous, goggling eyes. No ray of sunlight ever pierces the dark, unfathoined  caves id which they dwell. Tilach  species is gobbled by .the species next  bigger,, for there is no vegetable life  to feed on.  \> ' ..'  \ .-��������� * <      i  PROPERTY IN HEDLEY  i'i  A Good, Safe   I  Hedley  is the supply point for the Nickel Plate mountain, on which is situated the famous "Nickel  Plate"���������the richest gold mine in Canada���������and many other  promising mines and prospects.

According to some astronomers the  greenish patches on the planet Mars  indicate woodland regions, and a scientist predicts that centuries after the  rest of this earth has become as barren  as t!io mountains of the moon Martian  astronomers will still distinguish here  bright green spots of considerable extent near tiro oast coast of South America. The forests ot tlie Amazon valley,  he thinks, are practically extermination  proof. An average of 1,000 rank trees,  shrubs and creepers cover every acre  of ground and a year's neglect is  enough to obliterate all traces of the  most thorough clearing. A film of spontaneous vegetation soon covers the deserted field, trees shoot up aud the  sylvan deities resume their ancient  sway.  Hypnotic  Influence.  An extraordinary story of tho imposition of one will upon another was told  before the psychological section of the  British Medical association at Oxford.  Dr. Eklridge-Gre'en said that he was  talking with a patient on the subject  of hypnotism. The patient, a lady of  more than average force of character,  said she defied any man to send her  to sleep and make her do as he wished.  "I told her it was not necessary to send  her to sleep," Stud the doctor, "and  added, 'You will wake at 5 o'clock tomorrow morning and will send me a  post card despite your own wishes to  say no.' I got that post card. It was  somewhat to this effect: 'I have been  trying not to write to you, but I did  wake at 5.' "  IPor Roll Particulars, Maps \S,tc,  -J%*-������F������I-"V   TO-  L. W.

Pulled bread is served at several of  tho best restaurants, and it is not only  palatable, but much better for people  inclined to be fat or dyspeptic than ordinary bread. When kneading the  bread for baking do it in such a way  that the grain will be lengthwise of the  loaf. When baked and before it is  cold remove the crust, pull the loaf  into halves and again into quarters  lengthwise of the loaf. Keep dividing  it until the bread is of the desired  shape; it is usually in long pieces about  two inches In circumference. Place  the pieces on a rack, put in a pan and  dry out tho moisture in a slow oven  and color a light brown.

It may be news to many persons that  tho use of sand for teaching children  to write and form their' letters is still  practiced in some of the small schools  in the' rural districts of the north of  England. Thousands of our forefathers learned to write and to make figures with a sharp pointed stick manipulated upon a smooth stretch of sand in  an age when copy books were unattainable and steel pens undreamed of.  - A  Klnil Iteanest.
