It is. located  in" a'basin on' tlie"e.isterh slope, neai  the   .summit   of   the   divide   between  Trailt  Lake and, the south folk of the  J,iii(?cnu.    The (iiiai't/.ite dyke, which  we have referred to as being traceable  through  the country from  the north  foik 'of the Ijardeau Hiver to the head-;  'waters  of^Hight Mile  Creek'towards  the south end of Trout l.iikc, stands  out distinctly in this basin, and divi-  ���������ties tin; Silver Cuprpioperty'iioin the  , i niinenil   locations   to   the   west,  and  which n're said to show values mainly  .in   gold.    Indeed  .several   prospectors  '  who 'know   the  district   well  declare  this dyke is the dividing line between  ,'the gold and silver,oie������'of the locality.  The 'formation' west   of   the   dyke  appeals   to  be   mainly   mica   schists  - These schists.have a strike'of N". 32 E.  andWlips'fiS.

Dr. 'John FergiNnn, speaking at  Toronto on the Grand Trunk I'acilic  a few'days ago, contrasted sir Wilfiid  Lauriei's plan for another tr.i'nsconti-  nentnl railway with the scheme proposed by It. .L.' Borden, leader of the  opposition. If , Boiden.'s plan weii'  adopted, h'o's.iid, no new tei'iitoiy  would be opened up and the enterprise  as suggested by him'would cost, about  '$ 150,000,000. Sir Wilfiiil's Grand  Trunk Pacific project will only,en-1  tail obligations to the extent of $10,  ,000,000', while 'at the snne time'the  people will have assets .worth at least  $50,000,000. 'The' new road would  'open up the great west and b'liug in a  second energetic population * to the  now country.

It is  hard in the heat of action to notice every act of valor, and  therefore only those which take place under the eye of  superiors of sufficient rank can be noted.  . The picture shows one of .such deeds Two troopers are  closely pressed by the enemy. The horse , of one is hit.  Under the withering fire, the man whose mount is unharmed  halts, and, risking everything, 'waits to get his comrade safely  mounterd behind him and carry him back to the Canadian  lines. It is a desperate deed, and one often performed but  seldom noticed. When, however, such an act is seen, the  reward dear to soldiers' hearts above every other is the  result.  This picture is from the brush of Mr. W. B. Wollen, an  artist famed for his war pictures, one whose work appears in  all the leading illustrated periodicals of the Empire.

Then we find a member of parliament drawing   salary   both   as  road overseer and member, and instead , of      his     being    required  to    resign    and    go1   before     his  constituents, as has hitherto been  clone in every similar case, the McBride government'cooly brings in a  bill to wbitewashJiim regardless of  the strict laws of the province specially devised to prevent this kind  of   thing.    When   some   members  and'supporteis of the,Semlin-Cot-  ton government-found   they   were  amenable to  the  law, their  firms  having  received government   payments    without   their   knowledge,  they   resigned   in   a   clean,  manly  way, and went before their constituents.    But the McBride government is  afraid   that  if it allowed  the Lillooot constituency to be reopened the opposition  might win,  and   that would   mean   the disappearance of the government majority and its loss of ollice.  Rather than   take such chances  the government is prepared to sacrifice the public honor in the hope  that, with the socialist vote, it can  carry through a corrupt measure to  keep it in power.    And Ilawthoni-  thwaite,  Williams  and   Davidson,  who   boasted   on   the  platform   of  their desire for clean government,  will show they are as bad 'as   the  worst of them   when   it  comes to  placing their personal love for ollice  before the public inteiest and good  government.    As a leading citizen  remarked to us tho other clay, the  next  thing we shall find the McBride government doing will bo to  bring a bill to excuse a supporter  for murder.  tive farms and orchards, and mineral wealth, there is'a great future  before that section of the country.  But it wants a.chance.' At present  the country is largely tied up by  land monopolists. While the McBride government, has taken good  care to raise the taxes on the workers, small .'farmers, merchants,  lumbering arid other industries,  there.is one class'it-especially favors and that is 'the Jiind'monopolist. - Mr/Mcl"nnes pointed out one  instance' where''practically, 'two  million acres of, land escapes .'taxation,'and it will continue "to be so  under the' ^McBride- government  who'are the .direct representatives  of land monopolies'.  In the old land- one, of the'greatest curses of the country has long  been "recognised" as found in land  monopoly.- In British Columbia it  is no better. This province wants  a vigorous policy* to secure the opening.up of the country and there is  no'better policy having in view  that effect than a progressive' land  and income tax, whereby, the holders of large'estates shall be obliged.to pay the bulk of the taxation  of the country, subdivide their es-  tates, or turn them over to the government on> an equitable; basis of  compensation;to be opened for settlement. If the people of the Oka-  nagaii valley understood .the importance of 'this question to them  they'would no longer return to represent them a land monopolist like  Price-Ellison, 'whose "interests' "arc  antagonistic to those o^ the masses  of the people.  ' -  The clay of awakening is not far  off," 'when the importance of a  change of policy in tqe direction  suggested'will be lecognised, a new  and up-to-date government will be  demanded, and the Okanagan will  be i������presented by a man of vigorous ideas whose interests arc those  of the mass of the people. Mr.  Sterling, who unsuccessfully contested the seat last' election, appears to" be such a man, and (he  sooner'either he. or'a man of his  calibre, is entrusted with the legislative interests of Okanagan the  better will it be for that' district  and its people.    ,.

Bonaparte having on Ins departure
for  the, island  of  Elba   promised  his
conridontial  friends  to' return   in   the
violet  season,   his   adherents, adopted
the above simple flower as a rallying
sijnial.   "Corporal Violet" became their
favoiite  toast,   and   each   was  distinguished by a gold ring with'a  violet
in   enamel   and   the   motto,' ,','Elle" re-
pnraitni, nil printenips!"'' (It 'will  appear, again in spring.)    As soon as it
became generally  known that he had.
landed.at  Frcjtis  a rimiilitude of the
women of Pans were seen  with'bas-
'"kets full of'these flower.s. which were
;purclinst!d   and   worn   by' his   friends
without   exciting  the, least  .suspicion.'
It was customary on meeting any one
thus decorated to'ask, "Ainie/. vons la
vloletteV" , (Do   you   like   the   violet?)
whe.n,'if they answered,  "Oni"  (yes),
it was certain  the .party-was   not a'
confederate.   ' But  If   ,tho    reply  was
"Eh  bien"  (well)  they   recognized 'an
adherent and completed the sentence,'

In the "Annalen der Physik" there is
a paper by IIerr.Walter on the genesis
'of lightning hi which, he shows,-that
.lightning flashes are preceded by minor
flashes, which, as it were, feel the way
and. mark the course  for the  inajoty
flash'or flashes.  Something of the kind'
is also observed in electric sparks. The
path, 'once marked, is utilized for fur-
'ther discharges; hence photographs of
lightning taken with-a'nioviiig camera
, may show more than one flash.   One
picture shows three main flashes at.intervals of .0177 and  .04S9 parts of a
"second.between.   Of course to the eye
they seemed one  flash:   Another picture showed Ave flashes lasting^'nito2
gether a quarter of a second. Although
signs of an alternating'discharge were'
seen on one picture, it may bo taken
for granted'that as"a rule lightning is a
series of continuous  discharges  from
cloud to earth.

,   Th�� Story of Irt/ih Poplin.  '       H
- The" story of Irish popUnrls a curious
one. Lady Carew was to be presented
-at the'court of Louis'rhilippe.";'Slio"
took with her to Paris a* length of irish,
poplin, which was then first being
made' In Belfast. It was of a creamy
white,1 embroidered all over with little
dots and sprigs of gold. Lady Carew
took it to a Parisian dressmaker, and
the modiste went into ecstasies over it.
On her way up the stairs to the reception rooms at the. Tuilenes Lady
Carew felt a pull at her dress. Afraid
of pickpockets, .she turned quickly. "I
beg a thousand pardons," said a splcn
didly *essed woman who stood beliind
her, "but would you tell me what your
dress is made of? I never saw anything so exquisite in my life."
A dozen times that evening Lady Carew had a similar experience, and the
result was one of the most extraordinary crazes for poplin that ever was
experienced for any new fabuc. One
Irish firm sold ��2-1,000 worth of the material within a year, and three large
P.elfast houses are said to have founded their present large fortunes on Irish
poplin.

smoked.'   Pretty   soon   the   old    mam
strolled-out  that  way  and  when   he
came up to .where I was sakl_in.1n_o��joi-

I.didn't tumble, for a  second, aiid ho

continued,' 'but I never had any money
to burn.' ��It-caii'ie  to  me all  at once
what ho meant, and I threw .the cigar
away.   Next   morning  when, he  came
around   there  f wasn't smoking.   ,IIe

"Some years ago a young woman re-,
ccntly from the Emerald,Isle calledlat
my office to have some dental work
done. 1 examined her teeth and found
that a'mong them was one so badly
wasted that it was not worth filling. I
told , her this.' 'now long,' she .asked,
'do you think it would'last if. it were
filled?" r'I have no idea,' I replied. 'Not
very long anyway.' 'Well, 'how long
do5 you think?' she persisted. 'I cannot say,' I returned. 'I would not
guarantee it for any length of time.'
Still anxious and determined to secure a favorable and definite answer,
nhe asked, 'Will it last longer than you
think it will?'"

Tobacco Worth Itn Weight In Sll-rcr.
In England .the first pipes used appear to have been made of clay, with
narrow bowls and contracted mouths.
Then' as the habit grew stronger and
tobacco    became   cheaper    something
more   capacious   would   be   icquii-etl
These are the pipes which  under the
name of "fairy pipes" are sometimes
dug  up  and  preserved  as  Interesting
relies  of  the   past.    Aubrey., writing
about 1CS0. says: "The English people
Orst had silver, pipes, but the ordinary
sort   made   use   of  walnut   shell   and
strawe.   I have heard my grandfather
say  that one  pipe  was  handed   from
man to man round the table.    Within
these thirty-five years 'twas scandalous
for a divine to take tobacco.   It was
then  sold for its  wnyte in  silver.    I
have heard some of our old yeoman
neighbours say that when they went
to market they culled out their biggest
shillings to lay in the scales against tobacco.  Now tiie customers of It are the
ere.'itest his majesty hath."
Tlicorjr and   Practice.
Hero is a good story from the collection of a German school inspector. The
pupils were being examined -on the
subject of personal hyglono. A boy
was asked, "What have you to do in
order lo . keep your teeth , sound and
white?" "Clean them," was the prompt
reply. "When ought you to clean
them?" "Morning, noon and mglir."
'"What are they to bo cleaned with?"
"With a toothbrush.',; "Very good.
Have you a toothbrush?" "No, sir."
"lias your father a toothbrush?" "No,
sir." "Has your mother a toothbrush?"
"No, sir." "But how do you know
about the use of toothbrushes?" "We
sell them, sir."

Ankles nn<l   Kockinic Chairs.
An Investigator has discovered that
ff'Amcriean women are shorter than
Englishwomen their limbs nre alleged
to be more symmetrical and their ankles are more graceful. The use of the
rocking chair, to which all Americans
nre addicted, is said to he responsible
for this. To keep the chair in motion
continually repeated pushes with the
toe iniwt be given. This process makes
the Instep high, the calf round and full
and produces n delicate and slender anile by keeping from It accumulation

Axfroloi;?' and  War.
It has been stated on what is said to
be good authority that a representative
of the Prussian government asked of a
French astrologer the proper time to
pick a quarrel with Franco. After
carefully comparing horoscopes of high
officials ho answered thnt any hour in
the afternoon as near as possible mid-,
Wiiy between the 0th and Mth of July,
1870. On the Ilth of July. William
snubbed Renedettl. the French emissary, and on the 12fh friendly relations
ceased.
