You might as well try to' stop water  from running down a hill as attempt  to stop Sandon from growing.. We  are strictly in it. Sandon is bound not  to be outdone by her sifter cities���������  'To'-onto, Winnipeg, etc.-  A week ago last Sunday a gentlemanly " nou-produc-ei "���������a pi earlier of  the Methodist persuasion���������started,' in  tluvdiningroom of the hotel Sandon, to  show'the boys the ''trail" to the  "Pearly Gates." It begins at this'place  "and runs up past the Deadman mine to  the unexplored legion beyond which  yet remains to lie prospected. The  trail is heavy and steep, and it is compulsory that all travellers be heavily  packed and they ar,e not to stop until  they reach the land of .Beulah where  the grass grows and they can feed and  water.V,However, it is to lie hoped that  for the sake of good government' and  the chance to snooze comfortably once  a week the services will continue.'  The city baseball team, under the  capable management of Bruce White,  defeated New Denver's host nine the  othei day with a score of 31 to 10.  The Wonderful'mine, bonded by,Mr.  Finch, shut down for a few day=- but'  is supposed to start up on the 10th  with a full force of : men, under the  foreirianship of "Bob-' Covington.  ' Messrs. Miller and Enysheaues, late  of Big Bend, are at the Hotel Sandon.  They are looking for a contract on  some property h:-re.  The barroom of the Hotel Sandon is  attracting considerable attention. It  is lined throughout with cedar bark.  The' back bar is a mass of ferns, moss,  etc., brought in by the boys from the  mountains.  J. P. Sutheiland, manager for  Perdue <fc Burns, has an as is ant in  Mr. Macdonald. Tt is about time  Johnnie had some sleep as he has done  three men's work since, coming to  Three Forks. The " people's Johnnie "  is a great favorite with the people of  Three Forks and Sandon and with the  different mine owners.  , A school will soon he-needed here.1"  Sandon will be lighted with electricity  when the Slocan Star' concentrator is  built;"    .    '   " ������0 >      "     ,  The grading of the Kaslo & ' Slocan  Ry. is rapidly nearing completion.  A new sawmill plant arrived at the  Forks yesterday for Sandon, thus  giving opposition which will be a great  benefit to the good folks heie.  Several rich strikes have been reported this week.  ( Sandy Mann, of Mann Bros, is laid  lip.with a sore foot; a horse having  stepped upon it. Sandy is a rustler  and he feels annoyed at being compelled to stop work.  If the. miners of West Kootenay,  who produce nine-tenths of the wealth  of the' district, .could ' purchase their  machinery and supplies where they  -5eil"tlieir=oreut''-\voiild mean a saving  of a.good many thousands of dollars  annually. As it is they pay the eastern  inanufactuiers about 40 per cent, more  than they should for the privilege of  buying from them. If John Andrew  does not see the handwriting on the  wall he must needs lie ready ; for as  sure as death the next M.P. for Yale  will be a man who favors the lowest  tariff consistent with running the'gov-  ernment. It is too bad that Bostock  is not a Canadian, as I believe the  young man is cleverer than a casual  meeting with him would lead one to  assume. However,' if he will wears long  pants when he < oines down this way  again he will be assured of a majority.  The knickerbockers, affected by so  many Englishmen, will surely kill him  politically. The Canadian voter will  stand almost anything, but pantalets  are too much, even for a red hot paity  man from the effete east. ,     '' '  ..   Foot Mill.  Navigation of the Upper Columbia.  The.' navigation   of   the.     Columbia  River   above   Revelstoke     is , a    live  question with the people who are engaged    in"-developing    the ' mineral  resources of   the   Big   Bend   country.  Steamboat communication would be of  incalculable assistance to them  by   reducing the cost of getting   in  supplies  to  the  minimum,   and   facilitate   the  getting (iiit of ore,   as, beyond   doubt,  there will be shipping   mines  on   both  Games and McCulloc-h creeks within a  year.   The small  canyon just   above  Revel.itoke could be improved at slight,  cost and from there  to rDcath   Rapids  the navigation is   tolerably, easy,   and  from Death Rapids to'"Boat   Kncauip-  nient���������a distance of GO miles���������it is easy  navigation.    This impioveinent' would  not only assist   mineral   development,  but, along the Canoe, river  there   is   a  large area  of  good   agricultural   land  which would be brought within   easy  reach of the mines of  West Kootenay.  Last   year    Mr.   Gamble,     resident  engineer of the. Public--Works  depart-  . nient, made an examination of the- Columbia river  from   Golden   to   Revelstoke,' with a view of ascertaining   the  practicability arid cost of making   that  part'of  the   river   nayiirable.    Calling  attention to Mr. Gamble's reporta'tthc  recent session of Parliament, Mr.'Mara  enquired if it was the government's intention to carry outtheworksmention-  ed therein. Mr. Ouirnet, minister  'of public works, saidthat the necessity  of ' making improvements in the  navigation of the river,- as indicated by  the engineer, had been carefully looked into. "On the other hand," he  continued, "information was received  that no cominnnicaiiou by steamboat  was in contemplation now, and the  department, having such limited resources at its 'disposal- this year, -did  not see fit to ask for an appropriation.  As soon as there are signs of steamboat  communication being opened up,11 am  sure the woi ks lie has referred to will  lie taken up and completed without  delav " :. ,    -  TROUT LAKE CAMP.

The Hip-Van-Winkles of commerce,  whose, organization   is known  as the  B. O. Board of Trade, have just  begun  to grasp the idea that West  Kootenay  has a future.    Apparently   they   never  heard of the development of  this  pari  of (lie interior until   a! newspaper  correspondent went', before a meeting  the  othei   day   and   by   the    method    of  question   and   answer    succeeded    in  getting   their   ear    and     injecting    a  modicum   of    knowledge    concerning  our   possibilities.      His   efforts    have  evidently borne fruit judging fiom the  following extract   fiom  the  Coloni.sf:  "Impressed   with  the   importance   of  the trade and  ever growing development of that part   of  the   province,   a  number of   leading   business   men  are  making their arrangements   to  pay  a  two weeks' visit to West Kootenay, so  as to thoroughly grasp the position   of  trade there, the various lines   of   communication   and   the   best,   means   of  getting   that   part   of   the     provim e  thoroughly in touch   with   the   Coast.  The different mining camps'and towns  will be visited,  and "the. .'requirements  and possibilities of   that   part   of   the  province will   receive   attention.'   The  party will likely   consist of Unity   or  foi ty business men."  LARDEAU CITY NEWS.    ���������    '    -  o ,  Lahdqatj City.Aug.������.���������Prospecting  is in full swing up 'Fish Creek,a and  some rich strikes have been reported  on Boyd creek not fat from the Glengarry group.  L. Arthur and' Jack McDonald  (Lardeau-Jack) have ar.tived in-from  the Glengarry group with* some  splendid,samples taken", from the  claims, Glengarry, Prince Edward and  Jim Dandy. These claims are showing up big, and all who have seen them  pronounce them No. 1.  T. Downing and B. Ramey have  finished assessment work on the Black  Bear claim on Poole Creek ; they have  a good showing and the rock ought to  run considerable in gold.,. Assessment  work has al������o been done on the  Wagner group ��������� on Poole creek. The  claim Trapper in this group, looks very  pi utilising and shows some high grade  ore.  The Kootenay Gold Mining Co. are  pushing work on the Sable creek  claims, morn men having been taken  on a few days 'ago: These, claims go  high in gold, silver and copper and  there is every chance of this,, property  turning out something big before long.  Four men are working on -the' Lex-  ington group, ' Poole creek. These  claims have about thelaigest showing  of solid mineral of any in this district.  Tom. McRae has sold his Big Beat  claim���������extension on Glengarry���������to  some parties in Winnipeg.  Nine claims liave been recorded in  this district within tiie past week and  chances- are that quite a few more will  be in before the month of August is  out.        .   .

Owing    to    the   appropriation   not   being  sullicient   for    the  work required,  they   were   obliged   to  leave the trail in an   unfinished   state.  Mr.   Vickers .stater,-   that   c'lOU    will  complete the work.  ' It is a pity    that  the government (which  has    been    so  liberal'iu tlie   past)   could    not   meet,,  this small   demand,   aft   the    appropriation already expended is of no   avail  whatever unless,the work is finished.  ,    Fred.

This will be dosed at once."  Two More Locations on the Jordan.  Messrs. Frisby and Keighly, who  made the strike on the Jot-dan, north  of Iicvi-lsloko, some weeks ago, returned last night. They ha ve , staked out  two more claim ��������� and think they have  a hoiiair/.a,.  Trail Creek Miners Want More Money.  Trail Creek camp is not very old,  but, it already has a "labor question."  There wcre__wild rumors last week as  (o (he magnitude of I he strike whiih  was said to be in progiess at. the boom  camp ami some were not slow in  predicting a repetition of the scenes  enacted in the Co-iir d'Alenes. A despatch, whi( h went the rounds of the  coast, papers, ������aid I hat the miner's  union had demanded -m increase in  wages, which " the owners uniformly  refused and a .strike was ordered. The  owner.-, remained firm, and t lie strikers  went back to work al the old wages."  But, then, press despatches when they  icferto organized labor, cannot always hi' relied upon.

" If you please, mum," said the voice of

I wo little old ladies, who were sitting at
either ' aide of the table, sprang to their

A tame leopard, employed by the Bar-
num show, relapsed into savagely at
Bridgeport, Conn., the other night and got
away from the winter quorleis. ' A big
boarhound went in pursuit, and after some
difficulty found the leopard hiding in a golf
field. Not being hungry, having just eaten
a sheep, the beast was running round a big
bowldei to get up an appetite for the golf
players, who were entirely unconscious of
the approach of any other mealtime than
their own.
The leopard was'tamed once, and at the
,beginning of the season used to jump over
a stick In the street parades of the circus.
One duy she bit a piece out of a clown and
wis sent td'Bridgeporc to be further tamed
by Barney Duke, the professional terror of
r.he animal kingdom. She lived in an old
building/'wtiich is being torn.dpwn toinako
room for an new elephant house. The
work men,<-who did not know there was a
leopard on the other'side of the wall, tore
out enough bricks from the back of her
cage to let her escape. She waited until
nightfall,and then got out.
In another part of the leopard house is
a white-eyed horse, used for ring purposes,!
and now under treatment for insanity. In
tlie same building is the boxing boarhpund,
Irene, which has been left behind to nurse
her puppies. She used to perform in a den
with the lions, tigers and leopards. 'When
Mr. Duke went' to feed the white-eyed
horse he found her bitten and scratched.
He 'thought at first she had attempted
suicide in a fit of insanity, but when he
missed the leopard he knew that the'creature
bad got out and had begun to eat his cra/,y
patient. Duke says the leopard probably
did'not like the taste of the liorse, ana>
dropping it, went, to look for something
better. According to.his statement he has
known escaped wild beasts to-sample
a, do/en' animals
before they found something they cared to
eat. One^'of the lions got out Ui3t spring,
and bit small pieces out of a zebra, a camel
and a'bear, but, finding none of them fit to
eat, wentAiid devoured an ostrich. ^
Tlie-hon tamer resolved to go 'leopird,
huiitinir. Ho took a gun-r.nd,the big boar-
hound Irene with him. Her five puppies
sniffed at the horse's blood, wagged their
little tails and followed. Duke showed tn'e
boarhound the empty cage, and gave her to
undeictand she must take up the Ecent.
Irene put her no?e to���the ground, and then
bounded over,, the fence in full ciy, her five

At Cnerry Hill, a small village a few
miles from Mt. Hackensack, X. J., it developed , cyclonic fury, attended by the
demolition of the village and a number
of deaths. \\ ithiu a minute after the
storm broke twenty-seven houses, nearly
the entire number in' the village, were
wrecked. The cyclone made a clean path
through the centre of tne place, carrying
everything before it. Houses were unroofed or thrown down ; trees were unpool-
ed, and the crops in fields levelled to the
ground. At the present time it is known
that five aro killed, and the injured are
numbered by scores, many of, them, it is
believed, fatally.
Great masses of wreckage were carried
through'the air by the gale, adding to the
destruction. Among the buildings wrecked
was the Dutch Reformed church,'a brick
structure recently erected. Three large
beams, picked from the wreck of, other
buildings by the wind, were borne, end on,

When the poor man was told this'he reins if the lhst hour had come and that the

to the palace and was shown through all

'.' "Whois it ?" asked H,enry;Wyalt..;'
" AR in good, time,"/.was William's

���His voice sounded .strangely tothsm.
There was.a singular tremor in it.    ,;
" Rlg'ht the candle, Carrie," said Airs.

" No. no," said Willinm Harper,"don't
do anything ,of the., sort., As an, old
friend., it is jlot much to' ask." '   ,
It certainly was not'much to ask,
but from the tone in which, the request
we= preferred, William Harper seemed
to consider :t of great importance. Carrie Wyatt did not attempt to light up
the room.
" Is there anything the matte* with
jou) William Harper ?" asked old Mr.
" No, nothing," he replied ; " that is,
nothing bad. What - should be the
matter with me, eh 1"   ��� '
" Who is it at the door?" iExjuired.
Henry Wyatt.
"All in good time, all in good timet"
again said William .Harper.    ,
" Upon my word," said Henry Wyatt,
" I think I must go and see for myself."
But' to carry out this simple design
would have been difficult, for William
Harper had closed the room door,' and
had placed a chair' against it, upon
which lie was .sitting.
" You are very fond of telling stories,
Mr. Wyatt," said William Harper,
"and you tell thorn wcdl and beautifully. Would you mind listening to
a little story I have to tell ? It is
very short."
"Tell  it bv all means/'  said  Henry0
Hut Willinm Harper did not immediately  proceed   wilh   his  story.
."It is a hard winter," he said.
"Yes,"' said Henry Wyatt, "it is a
hard  winter, William."
"And life is a hard fight," said William Harper.
"Yes, William," said Henry Wyatt,
"and life is a ljud light."
Rachel took her husband's hand and
held it in hers. ��� (
"We must all do our best," she said,
In- a tone so gentle and sweet that it,
brought tears to the eyes of the men.
"And submit to the will of God."
"Never was, a better best than yours
and your husband's," said William
Harper, "and you will meet with
your reward."
" T pray to Heaven ! I pray to, Heaven !"  murmured  .Mrs.'   Wyatt. ,    ,
" William Harper," said Henry Wyatt, " there is something on your mind.
Let  us know it,  quickly."    ',
"You snail know it very soon," said,
William Harper. - " As I was saying,
it is., a hard fight, this life of ours.
There is sorrow in it, there is trouble
in it, almost deeper sometimes than
one can bear, but there is always
light !" ' ���   ,
"Yes," murmured Mrs. Wyatt. and
her- head ,snnk upon her husband's
shoulder.      "There is always light."
,'" The story 1 have to tell," said William 1-larper, "in about a little girl
whose namecwas " He paused a moment before he, uttered it���" Carrie."
" Carrie |", oxclaimed tlie child, creep- .
ing closo -to him.  , , ."
"Yes, Carrie," ,he said. "To think-
to think, that three years ago, out of \
her own head, she should have written ���
a letter tu Santa Claus, begging him lo
fifsist her in the inrthernneo of a wish
thai was very, very dear to-* her nio-'
tlirVs  heart."
."William !" said   Rachel  Wyatt, half   ,
rising  from her chair.
'"To think," continued William Harper, " that she should have written
again last'year Lo Santa Claus a letter
that must rravr-, done the old -fellow .
good to read, aiid Hint she should
again implore him to try and( discover,
���whom do you think ?"
" Hor "dear grandpapa," whispered
little Carrie ; hut low as was her voice
il was heard by all  in  the room.
"Yes,"' said William Harper, "her'"'
dear grandpapa, hor dear mother's father, whose'presence lie're^woiild bring
a blessing I To Hunk that she should
write again this year to Santa Claus,
for the t'hird time, repeating her wish,
and thanking him for the turkey and
the other things he was'so good as to

I know they look as if1 they  were sort of thrown  together, but therein  lies their art,  and it ie a studied, art, too.  If you have tried'- your own hand at one or  more   you'll   understand   liovv that  can be  '    and   if you have observed   the dressmaker  you   have   very likely^ noted  that  she has  kept her victim standing longer during the  <��������� fitting of,a modern,blouse eit'ect than of an  ' ordinary tightiy clasped arrair. '  Wnat shall we tio, *o make the arrange-  , ment of our garmeur.s, either by outsoives  or by some one else, a more comfortable  undertaking? Some ladies have adjustable  wire forms, some have stuffed forms made  according to'their measurements, but these  are quite expensive. - I relieved my own  distress by miking a dummy by stuffing,a  well-fining waist with rags and batting,  and thus 'havej something on which.to fit  ��������� and drape and get the prospective lay of  collars, revers, etc., ad infinitum or rather  to .the .extent ,of my needs, without any  danger of calling out sighs'and perhaps  more forcible attestations of physical weariness. A half-inch-in jab of upinMs just  the same to it as a caressing pat.  As to method   of  procedure, use an old,  well-fitting waist rather thau a fitted lining,  because the mere lining  will   be   more apt  to stretch.    Take in the seams  somewhat,  that- the   waist may be more   nearly  your  own exact size ; in regard to the arms, the  waist, sleeves will be  larger'than your own  arms, so take your arm measure atehfletent  points and   at  the arm hole���������here pretty  tightly, if you  expect to sew in the sleeves  of the waist���������then make 'the  waist sleeves  according to  the   measurements,      As   to  sewing  in the  sleeves,";!   I wore to make  another or to rearrange my dummy's arms,  ' 1 should   stuff  the sleeves   separately and  merely attach to w-iist by their tops. ���������   1 am  convinced that the   new waists   could,then  be   more easily  drawn onto   the   dummy,  because the aims would swing more readily  ���������more naturally. For mounting the frame,  use a stick long enough to aelmit of haiipin'g  ' a Bkirt frame.      At   the   end of   the stick  wind    rag3     very      tightly,    tacking    or  nailing     the    first    few    layers    to     the  polo to prevent the completed   form   from  slipping down.      When   a, euflieient padding ot   rags is  put on to  support  a  cor-  Eet, arrange around the padrliug an old one  already shaped ,to your form���������if you wear  such, if not, beg one of some one similar to  your size.    Over the corset place the waist  and stuff with batting to fill out the shape  of the waist as nearly ��������� as you   can.      The  corset acts as  a   support to   the  waist, in  which u. is also well to leave the stays. For  a standard, I have a neat three-legged one,  the  contribution   of my   young   brother's  skill, but an equally serviceable one can be  made by nailing to a 1 J foot, square board,a  piece of scantling  in which a   hole to contain   the   lower end  of the pole tins  been  bored.

Then came two  acolytes bearing '.rays that were covered  with napkins, wnich they afterward placed  on the altar. Following tuem was tho  high priest, who wore a. long,'white beard  arid looked like a patriarch. He 'is the  Bishop of the largest Buddhist diocese in  Japan, and'is reputed to be a man of proper  life, profound learning and great influence  in pubhc_an"airs. His robes wer6 gorgeous  brocades, scarier and purple and gold. He  carried an elaborate, lacquer staff like a,  crosier and a horse-tail bwttch, which is  .used in the distribution of blessings. It is  waved before the image of Buddha and then  over the heads of the worshippers to distribute the'beuefieent.. influence of the god  Get man paper-makers   have   through the atmosphere.  The other priests  wore robes of different colors, which seemed  to indicate their rank���������white,yellc-w,green,  purple, blue, and scarlet. Some were  embroidered and some were plain, and  every priest carried in his hand a folding  fan, which he used frequently through rhe  service. We counted 200'of them, 'and  .there were many more.  The high priest knelt in front of a reading desk beioie the altar and mutteied a  prayer,   switching his  HORSE-HAIR  WAND '      .

I  noticed that ihe, tables corresp7;nded in  color with the robes of the priests. There  was a strong .odor of incense as the high  priest led a chanted set vice from a parchment roll spread out before him, mid a  muscular monk over in a corner beat a  suspended di um about tne size and shape of  a whiskey barrel with an instrument that  looked like a baseball bat. Whenever no  struck the drum the priests chanted the  sacred foimula or" Niciienn': " Xmnu mio  oho reuge kyo," which literally means,  " Glory to the book that brought salvation,  the blossom of religion."

Albert Edward Prince ol Wales is perhaps- the most popular man m England.  This popularity is due' to , his love  of his sports anel all manly traits which  are particularly commendable in the eyee  of ihe average Britisher. As a youth his  audacity and appreciation' of a joke, either  as a prepetrator or victim, were well  known.  One of his early escapades resulted in  her Majesty the Qu'aen fooling a bill for  broken crockery and wrecked furniture  whicn the young prince , caused' in the  house of one of the lesser members of the  nobility. A rather elderly countess whose  quick temper and sharp tongue drove  even her servants away from her, advertised for a footman. Tne Prince, to whose  ears tales of the pecuharuits of tiie old  lany had come, resolved to teach her a  lesion. He therefore presented himself  in disguise at her ladyship's iiouee and  applied for the position of footman.  The counteB? had finished her breakfast,  and pushing her chair back fiom the table';  instructed the servant to bring before' her  the apphei-ii. The pnnce wlia therefore  uahe-reii into the room. The countess  looked mm over  from his fe.M, up.  'Apparently pleased with the appearance  of the prince, she f-aiel: "Let me bee yon  walk."'  Albert Edward did as commanded and  walked baekwaid and 'forward several  tunes across the floor from one end of the  room to the other, now walking briskly at  the request of the old lady and "then pacing  slowly, as she wished to obtain points on  this score. ,.    -  'I his performance over, tne countess  ordered him 'to tiot. The dining room  still tiie ,theatre of action, '-.the"prince  trotted around it several times. When  this exercise was completed he again came  to a standstill near the head of the table,  where-the countess was seated. ,Her ladyship seemed pleased', and w;i3 ju-t on the  point /lor" asking the young man some  questions about himhelf when he shouted:  "Now see me gallop !"  Uraspintr a corner of the, table cloth  firmly in one hand, the prince itished round  ihe room, pulling, the'erockery off on the  floor in a<heap,' knocking over tiie furniture, and finally winding her iadyship up  in tiie folds of the cloth. He then bolted  for the door, leaving the'eountens sputtering End shouting and the^servr.uts running  about in a.distracted way 'to liberate their'  mistress and quiet'lier rage.  In the hubbub and confusion the prince  escaped. The next day a cheque from ihe  keeper of the privy purse settied the  amount of the damages, and likewise established the identity of the mischief maker.  Poets' Corner.  A Dream.

' '   '     ,'  ,- An extraordinary bone-grafting operation  was performed at the Hahnemann Hospital  in , Pmladelphia   on    Wednesday,   expert  surgeons substituting a'portion oi a'sheep's  leg for a diseased bone in the ieg of fifteen-  year-old   Boyd   1'ol'ell.   'The   physicians  Bay    that  their hpatient , is   doing   well,  although it' is" too   early   to   determine  whether the operation will prove a success.  Some time ago young Folwellrecetved an  injury which resnlteel in necrosisorrotting  of the right ehmbone. -'A few days  ago it  waB decided that.'aiiiputatioii  of the   limb  would be necessary to save tho   boy's life  and, after tlu parents had been so notitieei  and prepared for the   woist, Dr.   Carl  V.  Viacher, one of the surgeons of the ho=pital  staff, decided that bone grafting might save,  tho  limb.    Acsordiugly a big1, fine-looking  sheep was procureei at tiie stock yards anel  taken to  I)r. Visclier.'s   laboratory.    The  animal was shorn and shaved and kept in a  first-class condition until Wednesday, when  it was taken to the hospital.'    The boy was  phiced under the in8ueuce of ether and the  pai t of the bone of the right ieg for  seven '  niches above the ankle joint was carefully  cutaway.    The sheep in the meantime had  been   chloroformed  and the surgeons cut  away a portion of its foreleg   t*> the exact  measurementof the part the place of which  it was ro take.    As soon as   the   bone was  taken from the eheep it  was fitted   in   tho  gap and the joints of the boy's   bone were  covered with periosteum from   the  sheep's  bone, in order to afford the proptr nourishment to  the  bone.    The entire   operation  vns carried on under thestrictest antiseptic  treatment,   and   as  soon as the sheep had  served its purpose its throat was cut. '  Only a few- such operations have been  successfully earned out, the earlier method  of employing pounded animal bone,'decalcified, having been almost nniveisally unsuccessful.

Last September a year ago Mr. Phelps '  tore down an old workshop in < the rear of  his house. In an old boot there he "found  a'nest of rats. The mother of trie Maltese  torn'killed tho parent rat, and later" ate  two of their children,' The third baby rat  stole into a pocket of Mr. Phe!p������'t coat,  where, at the end of three ddiys,' Air.  Phelps found it,, Mr. Phelps at first  intended to kill it, but the rat seemed so  tame that he decided lo mike it a household pet.  The rat grow rapidly on meat and ciieest, *  eating out of us owner'- hand, its life  was inconstant danger on account of the  number of c-au about the house. Mr. '  Phelps put the rutin a srnill ca[>e and placed  the cage in a large box made of wire screeuar  The cats made frantic efforts to''get at the  j rat. The Maltese torn, however, merely  sniffed at'the screen and walked away.  Tins behaviour decided Mr. Phelps to try  to conciliate Tom and ihe rat. He put Tom  inside the screen. Tom m&'de never*-.! halfhearted attempts to get tha rat out of the  little cage, and then stietchcd hnneeif out  and went to sleep:  Every day for three w eeks Mr. Phelps put  ,Tom in the big cage, and the rat, which hs  named Cheese, into the small cage. Daily  each became nioreuccuatomed to the other's  presence.    One day he opened both oages.  Tom anel Cheese squared themselves  as if "  for an encounter. ���������Mr. Phelps threw some  ,bits of meat between ihem.  They hesitated,  then both began  lo eat.    From that time  tho two have been warm friends.  They live together,in the cage. By day  they wander about tho house or into the  adjoining counlry'atore, which Mr, Phelps  owns. Each is very jealous of the other.  If any one pets Tom Cheese runs about  squeaking"and exasperatod. ' If Ciieese is  the favored one Tom murmurs his disapproval, and arches his back and bristles"  his tail. ' If they are separated they run  about minting here and thereuntil they  find each other, when they dance and jump ,  with glee. r Mr. Phelps has a larg'j show  window in his store. ' Tom and Ciieese  spend much of their time in it and the  spectacle of these natural enemies living as  friends attracts much attentioi-.  ON THE UTILITY OF BONES.  AH Doubt Removed.

Bossy  is the name of this   venenible   doctor, and  lie hiis been   in the active  practice   of his  profession,    principally    at.   Havio,      for  seventy-six years.    T>ospiter,his great ago ,  and  the iiard*>hips   which   aro  the  lot  o  most physician-, the'worUrover, Dr.'Bossv's  lean and wiry frame is not much bent, and  his step, tlKiigh it has lost the springiness  of youth,lias nothing sluillliug orcuncei*tain  about it.    '  As ' an instance of this centenarian's  power of endurance, it is recorded that, a  tew weeks ago," Le Pere de Bossy," as  the- inhabitants of Havre affectionately  term nim, was roused from his bed at  2 o'clock in the morning to superintend the  ushering of a new soul into the world. In  France ihe sign of tiie midwife���������a baby  sheltered under a cabbage���������is found everywhere, and it is not often that regular  physicians are called lo do the work which  the French " wise woman" regards as her '  peculiar and'exclusive province. Unlike  some young physicians who love iiheir ease '  more than an. increased practice, Dr.  Uossy's heli ia notniuilled or disconnected  at night, and ho responded promptly to the  manual call.  Arriving at the house where the patient  lay, he slowly climbed the staircase, and-  when ho reached trie sick chamber ho  installed himself in --.'comfortablechair and  said to ihe anxious husband- "I will not- '  go a way.until it is all over"'.  Dr. Bos-y's medical skill is a proverb in  Havre, and tiie people hope that he may  continue to exercise it for some years ro  come. As tlie hours wore un and" the day  began to break, the old doctor was 'entreated to go home ami take a little rest, but  he was i:im m his resolve not to leave his  patient. Fiualiy at (i o'elockrin the morning after a four hours' vigil, the affair was '.  happily concluded and the physician went  home. On arriving there iie found an  urgent call awaiting him. He only stopped  long eniiii-.-h to swallow a few raw eggs and  a glass of wiui���������his favorite breakfast for  thioe-qiiiir ieis > of a century ���������and then  stat ted out again.  Making" Idols In England.  A little unnecefasary excitement han been  aroused lately by the discovery that some  Birmingham metal inanuiaclureis have  been making idols to be worshiped by the  heathen in India. They probably executed  orders for which the-y were well paid, and  it was hardly their business to stipnlals  that tneir wares should be need for orna-  nuiii, only. Uendos, before we aro too  hard on the heaihcn, wp should remember  that if tlieir idols ot gold and silver were  melted down and sent to the mint they  wmilel reappear disguised as 'join of the  realm, and a good many Christians would  worship them then.

'At one lime, so 'our  informant says, this Company had  pretty well decided to build a smelter  at Nelson, with the view of handling  the ore from the .Silver King mine. As,  however, that Company has decided  to huild'and operate a smeller itself,  there is no object in tlie Kansas City  Company selecting Nelson for the  place of operations, and Nakusp, therefore, appears to he the  most eligible  , - location. - ���������  " Our corre-spondonf also intimates'  Unit the Canadian Pacific Railway  managenienf, has shown itself fully  alive, to the importance to the Province  of securing the establishment of a  smelter by such , an influential and  wealthy company and has acted most  liberally in the. arrangement for freight  <���������" on the oies and the products connected  with the., smelter's operations.
