Starchy  Foods.  Too much starchy food is eaten In  many households. Totatoes are served  with every meal, and they are usually  mashed or boiled. It is well to substitute rice, hominy and macaroni for  potatoes two or three times a week at  the very least and better still to omit  any of these at many meals. Fried  hominy is a delicious substitute for  potatoes when chicken is served. Boil  the hominy in the usual way, pour it  Into a shallow dish to cool and* slice  pieces half an Inch thick. Flour lightly and fry In chicken fat or butter and  drippings. This is an excellent breakfast or luncheon dish served with ma-  nl������i airuD or chicken craw.

'The real 'value  of'this'little device vlto'the housewife  'is due .to .tlie fact that ^contains her  actual experience. Her cookbook' may  .tell her the time'that is required gen-,,  eriilly for any specific article; a friend  !or'neighbor may tell her what time, is  required' 'for' baking- in her specific  home1 with' her"stove.

It is an  innate,i)'iopcrisily of a child possessed  'of average .food .health and spirits to  'make older'people laugh with him; not  atihim,' at the things that'seem'amusing.to his own sense. ��������� And.the mother  ',who has'thejblithe and^-eady.humor to,  'enter Into 'his "fuV becomes his 'most  .fascinating companion.' He heeds her  'rebukes t and ,bends to her correction.  .without ill-feeling ,where sternness  would'arouse his 'prideland"'ii'e,' for he  is assured that she is ready to sliare all  -his Innocent pranks and that heru<llsap-  .proval hus'no foundation in impatience'  or'injustice'. ' And when. the'day ar---  'rives that "childish things' are put  away" and the grown,men and women  look backward .to their early 'home,  .with what- a throb of pleasures they  say,..when .things happen: "Mother;  Svould appreciate this.. .She had the  quickest serise of,humor of any woman you ever saw!" And underneath  these light words is the'thought, "How  happy that doar mother made me, and  h'ow I love her!"  A    Device  .In    -Which    Food   , Coolcv  ,    Without   Fire   or   Attention.  A capital scheme for tireless cooklnfe  similar to that which is engaging the  attention of German scientists,' is described by a contributor'to the \Vou������- '  an's Home Companion.   She calls it the  "kitchen fairy."    The "fairy" consist* '  ���������of a large'wooden bucket or'box, Of- ���������  teen  inches  high  and  sixteen  inches  across or'even'larger; an eight incb  granite dinner pall,' with'a tight fittina;  cover and 6bme 'excelsior.. Pack th������  'excelsior intb'the wooden bucket.to the-  depth of about three inches, and' ob  this place the granite,pifil and pack ex-   ���������  celsioi- tightly around it to'the top.

It will keep hot from six to eight  hours, and the steam does the cooking;'  ,Rice,' macaroni,  meat and  vegetables  cooked in this'way'have'a finer flavor '  than when boiled or stewed in the or-    ,  dinary. way.-    Old   fashioned  oatmeal  porridge may be made for breakfast .  by/simply stirring one cupful of oatmeal into three cupfuls of salted boll-'  ing water in the evening and placing-  it ^n the cooker overnight.. This simple device, in which food cooks without  fire, requires ho attention." ���������' ' ',   i     ,  Odd* and  Ends of Soap.      ,  Most good housekeepers have on hand  a soap shaker in which to stow away  'the bits.of soap that soon become,too  small for handling and are likely to  get lost. But the fragments of the  'scouring stones and bricks are an ever  vexing domestic problem.- A good and  economical .way of disposing of them  is to place them between two strong  pieces of brown paper and "crush them  with a rolling pin till perfectly pulverized. The powder can then be put into  a tin can or box and used with a damp  cloth for scouring tins, agateware,  brasses, etc. Odds and ends of a dozen kinds may be mixed together with  impunity.'        -  -Where E-rerything? I������  la Pair*.    ,  There are two or three kinds of drawing rooms that literally set the teeth  on edge and cause the souls of artistic  people to shudder within them. One;  is the room where everything is in  pairs. There are, pairs of vases, pairs  of photograph frames, pairs of pictures,  pairs of footstools, pairs of everything.  It is impossible to prevent the thought  flashing across the mind that if pairing originated with the flood onelcan  only wish that Noah had taken .the  animals into the ark one by one.���������London Queen. t y  Broken  Glaus.  It you happen to break a glass .or,  valuable gla.ss ornament It can be effectually and easily mended in the following way: Melt a little isinglass in  spirits of wine, add a small quantity of  water and warm tho mixture gently  over a moderate fire. When mixed by  thoroughly melting it will form a perfectly transparent glue, which will  unite glass so nicely'and firmly that  the joint will scarcely be noticed by  the most critical eye.  RvpoHC of Manner.  Repose of manner, that quality for  which all Englishwomen and some of  our southern beauties are famous, is  one of the hardest things in tho world  to acquire. It means simply tho power  of relaxing.  First or all, you must relax; second,  you must keep relaxed, and all the  other rules are expressed in the same  word, "relax."  Doctors who have studied their feminine patients well will tell you that  Her,Tent.  An Oregon newspaper man, says he  was once traveling in the back country  of Oregon, nnd, going to a little inn  for lodging, was surprised to see a  large picture of Dr. Edward Everett  Hale on the wall. The woman of the  house explained it thus: "Well, you  see, a good many strangers come here  and want me to keep 'cm, and I don't  know anything nbout 'cm, but if they  know Edward Everett Hale's picture  I know they're good for something,  and I let 'em stay."

An  aerial tram was being' constructed  from the lower tunnel to raise the ore  over.a shoulder of-the hill and convey  it 4,200 feet to a stamp mill, which,  has been built on the north side of  Fool creek above Camborne. The  mill is well-constructed and well-  equipped with ten stamps, resting on  a   graded     rock    foundation.'  THE OYSTER-CRITERION" GROUP.  This  group of  claims, 'operated by  the   Ophir-Ladc  Alining    Syndicate,  Li .lited, is situated southeast of  the  Eva group  on   the   extension   of the  same lode.    As on the Eva group, the  lode consists   of   a   belt of fractured  country rock, containing several well-  defined veins, one of which is probably  the Eva >*o. 2.     The yellow-weathering diabase schist which characterizes  the Eva lead, is in evidence here also.  As in the Eva,   while   the   veins   are  partly fissure-filling?,  replacement of  thecouotry rock by vein material lias  uNo been   i >-porUnt.      The   country  rock,  which   i--  mostly lead-gray carbonaceous phyllite, may be seen in all  stages   of    alteration   to   solid vein-  niatler.     (Quartz is developed between  laminae of the pliyllites.

What  has been said of the distribution of  gold values in the Eva appears to hold-  good^here. , In.theCriteribn shaft the  vein with some phyllite inclusions-is  15 feet'wide. ' The'Criterion tunnel  funs in'a northerly direction for ,135  feet, when a galena vein, live feet wide  ,is encountered, (whieh strikes -13 degrees. The.tunneJ then, fo.llows.the  galena vein. This vein lies between  two slipsj with gouge and slickensided  walls. In- about',65 ^eei.albng'the  galena lode," the Criterion quartz vein  is encountered -'striking 26L"degrees,  angle 65 degrees north. ' The,galena  vein, here narrowed down to, about 1  foot, cats,.through,th* quartz vein  and faults"it, the' eastern limb- being  encountered 15 .ft. farther in. , The  g. uge on "the.walls of, the galena vein  continues'' unbroken , through ' the  quartz. "The eastern l limb , of the  quartz vein strikes 90 degrees, and  dips at an angle of about 38' degrees,  so that the galena vein" fault was not  a simple slip, but the movement was  a rotary one. A cross-cut on the  quartz vein 4 to 5 feet wide is said to  'sample $80 to the ton. About 60 feet  beyond the quartz vein, the faults  which the galena vein has been following/diverge, the easterly one running  60 degrees while the westerly turns to  18 degrees.' The galena vein and the  tunnel follow, the Matter. Thiee  ���������hundred and fifty feet in from the  cross-cut the-galena vein encounters  an east and west fault with a dip of  80 degrees south, which cuts it oft'  completely.      A   little   farther   in   a  second,fault is met with.    At 525 feet,  . . ... ,  a quartz vein several feet wide wins  encountered-in the tunnel, ,striking  295 degrees angle, 80 degrees south.  This is believed to be Eva No. 2 vein.  In all about 1 6)0 test of work has  been done on the Oyster-Criterion  Group at the time it was visbed. The  galena vein contains galena, blende,  copper and iron jiyrites, largely developed, in a quartz gangue. A thin  film of a silver-bearing mineral like  argeiitite was also noticed. This vein  is said to carry .about, if TO in gold, besides silver values. From the way in  which the two quart/, veins are striking they should intersect on the  Oyster claim. Near their intersection  it is possible that cross veins and  other veins may he encountered, and  reasoning fiom analogy, where the  veins intersect increased ,values maybe expected, as in the Eva where tli-  intersections of veins favorably alr'ects  the gold content. An aerial tramway  has been constructed from the mine  to a stamp mill erected on the south  bank of Pool creek behind the town  of Camborne,3,.r)00 feet from the mine  and 1,500 below it. The mill is a ten  Btarnp one, to be operated by water-  power obtained from Pool creek. The  mill, under construction at the time  of my visit, ih to be well equipped  with crushers, vanners, and all the  necessary machinery for a gold niiM.  A compresHor to supply power for  drills at, the rhino was also to be installed at the mill. The Oyster-  Criterion operations were being carried   on   under   the  direction   of Air.  \   '   NOTICE.  ���������VTOTICE is horoby-'Kiveii Hint, W) 'lays after  l\ dato, 1 intend to tiDplyto tl.o Chief Commissioner or Liinils unci-Works for n spociiil  ltcfeiiMi to cut uiul carry uwiij timber fnm.i the  follovwn,,'described lauds in the Wo-.t'Kootonuy district:���������    ' s  No, 1. y  Coinmoiici'im'iit a post marlcod "T.

REVELSTOKE, B. O.  MINE LEASING  Becoming Popular in B. C.  In an interview with the Outcrop,  speaking "of mining in general Mr.  Fowler M.E., said the system of leasing mines was becoming very popular  in British Columbia, and. though it  may, nppear'somewhaY straiige to' the  public generally, it' was nevertheless a  fact,that many' companies ,realized a  profit in tlris way that were unable to  make a profit by working their own  properties themselves '��������� in l,th'e .most  careful nnd economical manner.  "How do you account for that, Mr.1  Fowler ? " asked the reporter. , ,  ' ,"Jt is easily accounted for.. On the  American side of the'line the miners  are more outspoken .than here, and  there I hnvo repeatedly heard miners  say, 'On a'lease we put in three holes,  but for a company we could not think  of putting in more than two .holes.'  And that is e.\uctly what ..they do.  Miners will 'not work as-hard for a  company" as they will for themselves.  In this 1'think they are short-sighted.  By working hard,for a company " they  would he sure of steady employment  for-several'years, whereas they cannot  get a lease for < more than, a .few  months. , The''companies are recognizing this difference irr the cost  of mining and are -taking advantage  of it."

Tho curious smile in her downcast  eyes became more pronounced.  The man went on, this time'a little  bitterly:  ' " 'Man's love Is of man's life a thing  apart,* you say, and yet it seems that  I have better kept alive the memory  of that older time of which you spoke.  You miirrled Carlton within a year of  the breaking of out- engagement, mid  never gave me a chance to explain tho  accusations tlmt were brought against  me.

It can do no wrong to you nor to���������  to Mr. Carlton to say that I have  learned since that I was nil in Hi  wrong. I would have called you buck,  John, but my pride would not lot me.
