The old gentleman looked benevolently  at the-wreck and replied that It was  unfortunate, but that'll could not ho  helped. "Oh, it's so good nf you to  say so," said the lady, much dlstressicd,  "but I am really so vexed!"

'-\  .���������Whatever may bo the ultimate  outcome of tlie' war now raging in  the, far east, the. fact''stands out  prominently that Japan, newly  'awakened to Us power 'and,responsibility, has' shewn its superior  lighting' ability over -Russia, its  powerful antagonist. The celerity  of J a pun's movements and tho ease  with which, they gain victories,  have astonished not only Russia  but the whole world.- The Russian  army under Kuoropatkin has  signalized itself chiefly by what  have been called masterly retreats,  and apparently shun trying conclusions in open'battle. The aim  of the Japanese is (o surround the  Russian army and cut off il'= retreat  north towards Mukden,, and, at  one time, this was thought-to have  been accomplished. liy , skilful  "f-neralship, however, Kuoropatkin'  extricated himself from the net and  freed himself, from any immediate  danger of being caught in a-trap/'  While Russia' has4been'unfortunate on land;'it has been doubly  so'on the water, theiivboasted navy  being all but annihilated. It will  take a long time for Russia to recover from the loss sustained by  their navy, and longer still to regain her former prestige which, till  now,-has been undisputed. As it  now stands,it would be sheer mad-  !ness for Russia to send' any more  vessels for the .Japanese to capture'  01; destroy, and those" which are in  port will hav.e to remain 'there in a  state of inactivity. .,  ," The fall of Port Arthur has been  expected for'some time,- but the  Japanese have, so'far, contented  themselves with entrenching  around the doomed city and keeping up a continuous .cannonade.  We. ma}: expect that, at an ' early  date, the, final assault-will be made,  and this assault will be one of the  bloodiest on record. What with the  critical position of Kuoiopatkin's'  army, and the -'helpless, condition  of Port Arthur, Russia's hopes of  success are not of the brightest.

While better things   were expected  oi that   con.MiLuency, the   result is  no   great    disappointment.

Many of the  citizen then'prepared for Might, it  was ai ranged to > take "the women  and children out if necessary to  Fernie. ' The town became a scene  of animation and everywhere one  could see men digging great holes  in their back yards and burying  their possessions.  ���������- It is safe to say that up to 1  o'clock a. m. the scare was so great  that,there were but few sleepers in  the community. Thanks, however, to the foresight and excellent  arrangements of Manager Arthur  Wilson of the Crow's Nest Coal  Company the town is fully provided for such contingencies with a  water system. In'a short time the  buildings were fairly deluged with  water and fortunately also the  wind died down, thus postponing  the ladies' excursion to Fernie and  averting immediate disaster.  The company has had to close  their mines for a time and is blocking the entrance to the various,  workings so as to render them air  tight and thus prevent the smoke  mingling with the gas and causing  trouble.

"That, measure of  their's" said Mr. 'Olivei, -'is a fair  'valuation by tbem.-elves of the 'Mc-  13 ide cabinet who made it���������they aie  a 50 to 1 solution.''

The Man Who Exposed the Coal  f,    and Oil Lands Steal.  ;    '  As the Roman farmer was called on  to save his country, so out of a Delta  farm has'risen a man who has already  done much  to save British Columbia  from her despoilcrs as in   the case of  the coal and  pii  lands.   That man is  Honest, John-Oliver,   of   Bay   View  Farm, East Delta. ' <>  i      ��������� ��������� ,.        .  The history ot that farm is an index  to the character of the m'anV Ten  years ago it was a mud Hat, overflowed  by the tides and the" waves of the sea.  All available land  had been taken up  around it and this  piece  was rejected  irr i' t,       .     . .  as, useless. Mr. 01iver>aw 'in it possibilities, but he knew that to do anything with' it 'meanL . years'of' hard  work. ITe took it"up; cleared it, built  a substantial ,'dyke 'one and three,  qu.ir.cr miles'round it, cut and laid  i: 5 miles of underground drainage,  b ought it intc cultivation, and'today  ha- on. of the in'ost valuable farms in  tl . province.; The task to.which he  set himself was an exceptionally difli-  ci.lt one but bo porfoi mod it well, and  in-the face, of huge dillicultics. For  instanCeY when' His .dykeowas about  completed a storm biuke it down, but  he set to work'and re-built it. Mr.  Olivei hails-fiom Derbyshire, England.  The faim consists of 160 acres. The  principal crop is hay, to which 05  acres ;ue allotted. 25 acres are under  giiiin, mostly fall wheat, which does  well.' With each crop' he lays the  Jand in grass for feeding purposes.  The hay crop averages .three and a  half to four tons to the acre, and  there is a splendid market. Four.to  the acies are under potatoes.  The farm is well equipped wifcn  buildings and implements. Three  large barns are filled with the season's  hay crop. Mr. Oliver has one of the  largest ti.iction threshing outfits in  the province, the engine and separator  having been built by John Abel of  Toronth. The separator is automatic  feed, cyclone- delivery. Besides the  work of his own farm Mr. Oliver does  threshing for his neighbors. Tre itlso  has a sawmill which he operates in  winter, cutting timber for his own  use and, the wants of neighboring  farms.  Mr Oliver recently added to his  holdings by taking up 010 acres at  Pitt lake, and will use this as a cattle  ranch. 'At present he run- about 100  head of cattle there.

The number of piano exhibits wi s very large.  l'\>r beauty and variety of style, the  exhibit of the Williams Piano Co., of  Oahnwu, caused the most comment.  The difVcrent instruments they showed, in point of style,'finish and genera^  musical merit, demonstrated this Company to bo 'foremost among the'lead-  ing niakcis of the piano'world. The  cases shown were artistic models of  tho cabinet maker's art.-Thc beautiful  Slieridaii, Old Hutch and Chippendale  designs will,not soon be forgotten'by  those'who .s.tw thorn.' The lwor Dutch  styles, one a rare specimen of French  burl walnut,and , the other a. choice  bit of Cuban mahogany, were two of  the foatmes' of the building. TJie  dark rich wood' was 'olVsct by' brass  hinges and trimmings and even com-  poting'manufacturors could n'ot withhold their admiration.' Apart'.'���������froni  their' architecturali j beauty, these  pianos were all'that modern methods  could make them and possessed many  new fcatuics which made them most  desirable from the niusic lover's standpoint,to illustrate���������the'entire exhibit  bcing'closed out to' individual buyers  the first'week' ohowing th.it western  people appreciate the .highest artistic  conceptions' as embodied in this  special line. < *  The New; Scale Williams Piano t is a  piano that has been constructed along  entirely new lines and possesses so  many advantages over othqr' makes  that it is'well worth one's calling at  the local warerooms to examine'them'.

NEW LAKE  IN ROCKIES.  Artist Bell Smith arid Alpine  Climber Whymper In  Winnipeg.  Mr. M. Bell Smith, R. C. A., arrived  this morning on the Imperial Limited,  on his way east after his annual  sketching tour of a month in the  Rockies.  , Mr. Bell Smith intends visiting his  son today, the Rev. M. Hell Smith, of  Teuton, where he will give aichalk  talk in aid_of his son's church. Jle  was accompanied during his tour by  tlnee very noted Alpine climbers,  Edward Whympei. Prof. Chas. E. F.iy,  of Tuffts college, Mass., and" Walter  Dwight Wilcox, the author of the  "Rockies of Canadi.'' During their  tour these famous gentlemen discovered the practically unknown lake, Mc-  Arthtir, which was named after lhe  first surveyor. It is "hunted about  twelve miles (nun Hector, on the  main line af the 0. P. It. Its altitude  is S,000 feet above the timber line.  During their visit they saw a number  of icebergs floating in the lake, the  result of the breaking up of a huge  glacier. A very peculiar feature of  'this lake is that it has no visible outlet, but upon investigating they discovered a little whirlpool, from which  they concluded that there must be a  subterranean outlet. Another peculiar  charactcrUtic about this lake is the  sound which was heard from the  whirlpool, resembling that caused by  the rolling of pebbles down a pipe.  Mr. Boll .Smith i.s obliged to go east,  after spending a very pleasant trip,  getting material for some paintings,  as he is arranging the art exhibit of  the Toronto Industrial fnii. He has  a very fine collection of paintings at  the St Louis fair, one of which is the  admiration of all visitors, entitled  ���������'The Fraser Canyon."���������Winnipeg  Free Press,  ^WEII^ERS'  FOlt  FURNITURE  , Ours is no rtc-i  IHwtmon tii 1  More, J To mo  Ji'iirnisliiiigo'c-  ulubivolyls our  only biiMiicsu  for 10 yoius.

Rowland Brittain, Patent Attorney,  of Vancouver, sends the following abstract from the Official Gazette of the  United States Patent Ollice for the  week ending August 2nd :  During this week 50.1 Patents were  issued to citizens of the United States,  Austria-Hungary A, Brazil 1, Canada  7, Great Britain 12, France 3, Germany 21, India L, Mexico 2, New  South Wales 1, New Zealand 1, Norway 1, Spain 1, Transvaal, South  Africa 1, and Victoria, Australia 3.  Alfred Taylor, of Victoria, received  this week a Canadian Patent on an  improvement in bedstead construction,  which has been previously referred to  in these columns.  somewhat variable width, in place's as  much as 8 feet  wide, but   usually not  exceeding -1-focb." It ia  found   in   tho  slate with ir diabase dyke near the foot  /wall, the vein sometimes even tfavers  ing the d^ ke.   A second parallel vein  occurs in a1 band of slates on the south  side of'the dyke,  with   the  dyke as a  sort of a hanging wall.' -The lead consists  of solid "mineralized   quartz or  stringers and  veinlets  of quartz  reticulating through  the country rock.'  Hence there  are' often , small horses  with* veinlets ~running<'througli them.  As the  ore  is  not abundant on the  surface of  the lower 'working, it evidently occurs  in "the form of chutes,  as on'the Silver-Cup.   In   other' respects it is similar in character tokthe  Silver Cupr.   .The  upper  part  of  the  vein'is" possibly  soniewhat  richer in  grey copper, than" the lower, but'it is  also richer, in , blende   and   poorer'in  lead,   which  isYthe  reverse   of   what  might ��������� be' expected - if- much' renrich>  ment by 'surface   waters   had'taken  place.   The first-class ore is stated to  carry $12 to $18 in gold;  o'v'cr 200'oz,  in silver and 30 per cent of lead to the  ton.    The' following  information "'regarding   the, distribution    of   value.-  through the minerals of  the*orewa-  furnished   by Mr Dunn, the  superintendent at the mine:��������� ���������' '���������  -  The pyrite  will  assay   $20  in goltl  per ton.    On   the  surface   where - the  ore is oxidized ' to   ' carbonates '  the  gold value amounts  to  $50  per  ton  Pure galena will assay $200 per ton in  value of all the metals.  A condition .rather uncommon for  this latitude is found in the upper  workings of the mine, that is approaching the bed of the glacier. The  around is here saturated with water  in the form of ice The temperatuie  must remain   below  freezing the yem  round, for in   midsummer the ground  ... . -  remains   frozen "and    the   walls   arc  coated with frost crystals. The water  travels downward by melting and  freezing, for if a tunnel is not in use.  it fills almost to the top with ice, and  stalactites and stalagmites and pillars  of ice aro formed. When the frozen  ore is taken out of the mine and melts,  it is stated that it loses 50 per cent in  weight, and is reduced to a slime,  difficult to handle. Snow-slides have  made a permanent camp impossible,  so thai, the mine, has, not been operated in winter. Snow-slides also overturned the tramway, more than a  mile and a half long, which was put  up last year to connect the mine with  the wagon road. Those disadvantages  attendant upon its unique situation,  have made an ore carrying less than  $L00 to count ns of second grade.  Notwithstanding, it is estimated that  nt the close of the present season, the  oui put of tho mine will have reached  a total of $10,000. It might be  mentioned in passing that a dyke of  diabase near the Triune cabin is somewhat heavily mineralized with quart/..  sideritc, galena, copper, etc. The  Triune is situated on the southeastern con 1'muation of the mineral  belt on which the Silver Cup is situated, and it is quite probable that it is  on the same general lend. As the  Triune is nt a higher elevation and  the dip is northward, the lead outcrops farther south than at the Silver  Cup. Tt is not to be inferred that ore  is necessarily developed throughout  the whole distance, tor it has already  been stated that it is localized in  chutes.    This   mineral    belt   extend--  over Silver Cup mountain, the Cromwell and other claims   being situated  on   it.    It  probably runs   along  the',  range past  the  upper  part of Ameri-"  can, arid Haskiiis  creeks,  but ion account of the snow it'was impossible to  trace  it   up.    A -number   of   quartz  veins occur  on. this, mountain, some  showing   free   gold.
