An Improved Ore Crusher.'  This machine, adapted lo crush gold,  silver*, or other ores, forms the subject  of a patent recently issued to Mr.Frank  Bishop, of No. 12G5 Washington Avenue, Ogden, Utah.    Its   circular  base  carries four,sets of posts, in which are  journaled four horizontal radial shafts,  two  of  these  shafts   having on their  outer ends pulleys connected   by   belt-'  ing   with  a  suitable  source of power:  On each of the shafts i.s a step pulley,  and on these steps of the four  pulleys  rest similar steps ou the under side of  a  circular  ring-shaped   bed, near  the  outer edge of which, on the under side,  is a gear wheel or rack in   mesh   with  gear wheels on the power shafts.    On  the top of the bed is a' facing on which  the' crusher of the ore or stone takes  place, and in the facing are concentric  annular V-shaped groves,   correspond-'  ing to oppositely shaped ridges on the  peripheries of the four, crushing rollers.  The latter are on radial, shafts arranged in line with and supported  by   the  four sets of posts in which are journaled the lower shafts, but the boxes in  which are journaled the shafts of the  crushing rollers have a vertical movement, springs being arranged ,to press  upon'the tops of the boxes with a, tension which may deregulated by a set  screw at the top of the post over each  bearing, each roller)  therefore,   having  such   yielding   movement .'as   may   be  iccoi ding to t the 'material' be-  ing crushed.    The upper half  of  each  be only too  glad to sell a portion to  procure money to,buy stock and agricultural   implements.   It would ' be'a  pity to turn this fine valley into a grain  growing region.   There islio money in  raising grain compared with the' profit  that could be secured by raising vegetables, hops and fruits.   Such fruits as  strawberries,    currants,    gooseberries  and the large fruits would iind a ready  market, in the mining camps, and good  prices can always be secured in a  mining region.'   The  valley and foothills  abound     with     game.     The     Game  Laws   should    be    so   amended   that  actual    , settlers'    should     have    the  same  privileges   as   prospectors,   anJ  should have the right to kill game for  their own use. while they are laboring  under.the_disadvantages of striving,,to  make a home with limited means which  prevents their being able to procure  fresh meat' during the  pioneer days.  The Indians from the Colville' reservation swarm  over the country, killing  all' kinds   of, game.   This   should   be  promptly chocked  and order's   issued  from the proper authorities to prgvent  them hunting north of the international boundary line.   They have a magnificent reservation granted them by the  American Government and they should  be kept on it.   They have been allowed  too much,latitude and have been' molesting and threatening settlers.   Let a  strong hand be taken and officers placed on the international  frontier with  strict orders to prevent them entering  the province altogether.  '    New Plan for Catching a Thief.  A Buda-Pesth manufacturer has informed the police that he possesses a  powder with wliich thieves can be  caught. Having for the last few days  made the unpleasant discovery that his  cash box was plundered day after day,  and failing in all his attempts to' catch  the thief, he applied in his dilemma to  Mr. Telek, professor of chemistry at the  Franzstadt Commercial Schools, and  the latter gave him a'powder which he  sprinkled over his cash every night  before leaving the oflice.  This powder had the peculiar effect  of'dyeing the skin blue, the color being  intensified by washing, while it resists  the application ' of so.rp. On the very  first day the manufacturer"* noticed a  deficiency of eight crowns in' the silver  cash box. lie at once called his employees together arrd ordered them one  by one to steep their' hands in a basin  full of water-, got ready for the purpose.  One of the men was very loth to follow  the example of his comrades. At'last  he consented, when, no sooner had he  dipped liis hands in the bowl, than they  turned a dark blue! His employer  stepped up to him and said : " You are  the thief I" and the man atooiiee con  fussed.���������Anlui It tucker Utautft-Aiizciycr  named Town, who used to twist brake-,  wheels on the Burlington, is now President Town of the Southern Pacific.

In the year lS!)2aGovernmentappro-  priationof $3, (XX) was granted   to construct a trail  from  Okanagan  Valloy  through  Fire Valley to  Killanrey on  the Lower Arrow Lake.   The opening  up of this trail  afforded land  hunters  an opportunity to stake < out ranching  locations, and many applications  were  made.     Next  year   the   Government  built a wharf at  Killarney, and spent  .$700 in  widening out   the  trail  to a  wagon   road,   and about seven' miles  were partially constructed.   This year  the wharf has been extended.- and the  road repaired, and cut for a distance of  two miles, taking  in  all   the. valley so  far- located by settlers, at an  outlay of  iiil.oOO. . The   Government,   therefore,  has dealt liberally in opening up this  settlement,   but   considerable   money  will yet have to be spent in   improving  the main road, making  branch  roads,  and building several   bridges.    While  the. outlay may  be considered  rather  large, the corresponding benefits from  the opening up of this fine agricultural  section will  be  incalculable.   Here, at  a   moderate estimate,   are 10,000 acres  capable of rasing thousands of dollars  worth of small  fruits, vegetables, etc.,  annually,   which   will    find 'a   ready-  market'in the mining camps of  West  Kootenay, thus obviating the sending  of large sums of money out of the district   to   buy   agricultural    products.  Strawberries,   curiants,   gooseberries,  raspberries, vetches, etc., grow luxur-  antly, indicating the capability of the  .soil.   The climate is temperate and the  snowfall  moderate,   and   the summer  season  at, least (i weeks longer* than it  is on the line of  the  O.P.I?.    Jinny  of  the rancher's located 320 acres, which is  mure ground than they ran succeshful-  ly utilise.    But  l.hev no  doubt would  der  their" care a  patient  who bears a  most peculiar birthmark.   The patient  is'Zeraphina .Scia'olina.che two-year-old  daughter <oJ   Gaetano'  Sciaolina,   an  Italian laborer.   The child was admitted to the hospital on  May IS,   to   be  treated for a broken leg.    Ou her neck  is the mark which resembles a partially  coiled snake.   The head is like that of  a rattle snake, and rests just below the  centre of the collar bone.   The body of  the snake extends upwards in two coils  under then chin and  crosses the neck.  The ,tajl,   after crossing the centre of  the right' ear,   ends (at the lobe of the.'  the ear.   The birthmark is of a slightly  raised grayish  brown  cuticle that resembles scales.    Tt is  eighteen   inches  long.   The child is very pretty,   with  blue eyes and clear olive complexion.'  The doctor said that she was intelligent  and a great favorite with  the nurses.  ''We are all puzzled  with the case,"  said he, "a number of physicians  have,  made a   careful 'examination   of   the  mark aird all pronounce  it one* of the  most peculiar on  record.    During my  experience 1 have never seen anything  like it."   The child's mother, holding a  baby in her arms, was at the hospital  yesterday., She seems to rather enjoy  the ' notoriety   Zeraphina's   case   has  given.'   The woman is a native of  Pal-  adimo,'.Italy.   She is 31 years old arrd  came to this country with her husband  three year's ago.   They  were  married  four years ago and have three children.  Zeraphina is the.second. Mrs. Sciaolina  attributes the birthmark  indirectly to,  a fright she once got.    Her father was  a boatman and she often helped him to  unload   cargoes   of   fruit.    Orre   clay,  about a year liefore her marriage,  she  was assisting him when a small brown  colored snake sprang  from a pile of  fruit and tried to coil around her arm.  She shook it off, but the sight of the  snake broughtou an attack of hysterics.  Since  that time the sight of a snake  will prostrate her and she often dreamed that it was crawling on her arm.  That happened several   times just  before Zeraphina was born,   and  at that  time  she was made ill for two days by  the shock  of seeing some snakes irr a  dime museum.    Neither of Mrs. Sciao-  lina's other children have a birthmark.  Dr.  Getty says that the case will be  submitted to a  well-known  specialist!  on skin disease, and if he  decides that  the mark can be removed   with  safety  ihi- operation will be. performed.    The  birthmark has not changed its relative  size since the. child was borrr. Although  the marking i.s raised one-tenth  of air  inch above the  suiVounding  skin,   it  rhe  child  no   apparent   ineoii-  ridges along the course of the river, but  in every instance where we ca'irreorr the  gravel, we found it to be''pay dirt." How  the gold and,the gravelr-containing it  came there I do. not pretend tosajv  This much 1 am sure of, that it did"not  come from the, mountains. My idea i������  that it was lard tliere by the ice in some  remote age, but where the ice picked it  up is, of. course, impossible to tell.  Strips of ' such gravel, containing'free  "gold of a fine quality, "are found all the  way from the head of tbe Peace River  to Bear's Paw Mountain, by the Sweet  Grass Buttes. As. regards coal,'we  fouiidiiny quantity of1 it, and in places  where there is no indication of its existence on the Government maps. In  , fact, the bed of the river in many places  consists entirely of coal, and good coal  at that."  Put Together in Ten Hours.  "To look at a railway locomotive orre  would scarcely think that by any possibility it could be put together  in  less  than  one  day,"  remarked Thomas G.  Bick, of Montreal,, " yet that astonishing feat was accomplished not longago  in  England,   the  work  occupying less  than ten hours from the driving of the  first rivet to the application of the final  coat of varnish.   The start was made at  0 o'clock  in  the  morning, and eleven  minutes afterward the  first rivet  was  put into, the   frames.   The   cylinder's  were set and  fixed  in  one hour and  seventeen   minutes.    Four hours   and  seventeen   minutes  from   the. star t the.  boiler- was  in   place, arrd an hour1 and  twenty minutes later- the engine was  wheeled.   The wheels   were   supplied'  just as they left the shops, and the eccentric sheaves had  to   be fixed,' and  the axle  boxes,   connecting   rod   aird  coupling rod brasses fitted by the electors.     Eight* hours   and   twenty-two  minutes from the start the valve setting  was complete, and the painting  of the  engine was begun fifteen minutes later.  In nine hour's and fourty-seven minutes  from the start the  engine and   tender'  were completed in  every detail.    One  hundred and   thirty-seven  men   were  engaged in the work.   The locomotive  was put into  regular service   orr   the  day  it  was  completed,   and  has been  running continuously ever since."  Although our chief metal is gold, it will be  understood that our mining regulations providing for this Government assistance may be read  to include an.v valuable metal or mineral, thus  ..it was for many years believed that black coal  'in' payable se.ims did not exist in Victoria, ,,but  by the use of drills, aird by encouraging prospectors to sink for coal, exceedingly valuable  fields, both of black and brown coal, have been'  discovere I, chiefly in our mountainous province,  Gippsland. , ���������  The diamond drills are the property of the  Government, and are controlled by our mines  department. Tho for-en'ian and staff of men  allottct to each dri.l are also in Government  irnploy. '     ��������� '  ��������� Asa rule no drill i-i.iont to a locality where  the residents wish'a test made until tbe Government geologist Inio visited the spot and examined it. If his report is favorable and a drill  can be spared it is sent, applications being as a  rule taken in rotation as well as iu order of importance. '  Many valuable discoveries have been made  hy means of these drills. In one instance a very  lieh deposits of alluvial gold were found after  the bore hud passed through an enormous thick  bed of igneous rook (basalt.) N'o practical miner would have looked for gold in such a neighborhood. 'I'he result of the*discovery was a new  impetus to mining in the district, and share-'  holders in the mines started and obtained for  ii lung period very handsome dividends.  Mr. Jteid and myself have been absent from  Victoria since December last, and I cannot, tell  you what is the present Government vote in aid  of mining. It used to be ������80,000 a year, but this  large sum had to lie cut down , owing ,to tbc  'necessity for retrenchment..  Any further particulars you may require I  will endeavor to supply you on writing lo me,  Itiduau club, Ottawa.���������Yours faithfully,  .II. it.

News from Thomson's Landing dated
fNfniiday last stilted: IJad a terrible
wind storm here yesterday which
knocked dowir acres of timber and did
threat damage. Several" resident* of
this place who wero out boating orr the
Arm bad a close call. One party was
(hiveil into the bush and another upon
a brush pile. 'The storm passed over
quickly, however.
;Lardeau City i.s completely-submerged. Tbe water in ,Wrede's Hotel is tip
to the windows and is still rising. The
telegraph ollice has been washed off its
foundation and L-, completely, wrecked.
Hichardson's, IJolel was successfully

they lost rno.-t of their iurniture. All
tlioinhalritants aro now at Thomson's.

and others on a raft.
lint the greatest excitement centred
ou the river, which had for some days
been two feet above the highest water
mark recorded. Saturday had been
hot; Sunday was much hotter, and the
result was .-eeir in the huge volumes of
water rushing between the piers of fire
O.P.K. bridge with a roar like that of
Niagara., Crowds lined the brinks,some
lookiiur on, other.- working at making
log 'booms or fenders of brushwood,
which were fastened by telegraph
wires and slid do.vn over the crumbling
bank to the'surface of the wafer and
held in pl.H(-t by roy.-'sJ'a-tenedto posts.
This protected the bank at the surface
ot the water, where it ran swiftest.and
no doubt saved considerable Jarrd from
going into the river. '        * .
A house recently built by Mr. Harper
close to the river, north of the browrey,
had to bererno\ ed a bout 200 feet inland.
At the Brewery M0 feet of the bank
was cut clean away for ;t distance of
-e.i-r.ii hundred feet." Tbe ico-ho.ise.
cojrt lining Si) tons of ice, was mover I
fifriher in and the bank' prot'icted
with trees and biusii. The bank [a
about 2d feet high at this point, .ind'fs
composed of sand and small pebbles,
wliich. being undermined by the swift-
ilowrrig current, talis in the river in
huge slices.
All along tho river front tho bank  is
pretty much the same,   with-   litre  and
there a stratum ol larger1   boulders and
less sand, which withstands the action
of the water better than the sand u ifh-
out  tiie  boulder'.-.    So  that at pre.-ent
there are several promontories standing
out further into  tho  river  than'other
portion- where there has been nothing
but sand   to  stay  tbe   inroads of  the
Water.    Tho whole townsrte stands upon t lie b"d ol ,in ancient,  river of  vast
size, and the Columbia Kiver- of to-day
is cutting its way tnrough this  pebbly
berl   of   its  predecessor.    All Hie forie
of Ihe <.��iu'rei!b  stHlcos   the  high   bank
on -which the town i^ built and   the   C.
P.JL bridge h.is a great deal tn do with
this, as can plainly be seen.    Tiie  first

the  current   toward*   the   bank,   and-
when   lhe  stream  runs al   the rate of
from ]2,tn 15 miles an hour   if  may  be
imagined  tnat  the   walcr strike-  the
crumbling bank with no  gentle  force.
'J'lie back swirl ol* water, after rushing
through the pier.-.forms a sort of whii 1-
jiool under the roadway--the only outlet���to the Ere we ry. the cemetery and

IT T TTJl 1 -rlvrju   i.  THE KOOTENAV MAIL.  THINGS SAID AND DONE ABOUT  TOWN.  " [m*   DIOGEN'KS.]  Whatpvpr may be said against  0Avorkingmeii's unions or kindred .societies, 1 know of one case whore tbe  members of a certain brotherhood  found it greatly to their advantage to  belong to such an organization. The  circumstance took place right here iu  this town about ;t month ago. All the  C. P. R. employees here, with the exceptional" one class, had to accept reduced pay or '* git," the reduction  averaging about 17. per cent, of their  former earnings. A man getting, say,  $00 a month was cut to '$50, and so on  both downward and upward. The one  class which this reduction does not  affect are the engineers. There was  no attempt to cut their- wages in the'  least. Why was this? you ask. Well,  the sole reason was that they are members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive  Engineers, and had'their, pay been reduced there would, irr 'rrll probability,  . have been a general strike,-ill along the  line. So it pays a man to belong to a  powerful organization such as the  lirothei'liood, when a' great-road like  the. C. P. It. adopts*' the old adage of,  in  lie,  their case,  "letting sleeping dogs  I see'the men who handle teams  in  this town have gone,to work and made  ii new road for sonic distance  parallel  ���������with t.he Government road to the station,  so recently   "gravelled."     They  follow the old road from Toboggan Hill  to the point where it (the road, not the  hill) took a tumble   to  itself and  went  into the cool depths of the' river, one  hot day last week, and hero they turn  nil through the timber to the  left, and  1 am suprised to see what a nice road  they have made.  It must be a pleasure  to tlrive   over-   it;   so  soft,  so  silent,  through  the  leafy glades   and   burnt  stumps.    But why' is the main   road  boycotted after the Government has so  generously expended $250 in  repairing  and gravelling it?   AVell, for one thing,  the "gravel" runs too much to boulders,  "Which" lames  the  horses,   loosens the  springs, and crinkles the spines of the  ���������, *' passengers.    .So the main   road  i.s left  iir  solitude  for the  chickerrweed and  2  wild  strawberry  to  luxuriate   in, aud  lovers who have no care for the roughness of the way may be seen  meandering ahing in  the. gloaming ; but nary a  s horse  nor'a 'bus.    The gravel   should  have been screened before leaving the  quarry.'  ',       *  * . i  Those, people who  keep  pigs sdiould  '   also, keep ,the law, and  confine their  ' porkers in  their own., domains.     My  ireighbor's chickens delight irr scraich-'  iu my garden, and  destroy quite a lot  of flowers, but,when my neighbor's pig  ' puts bis massive  bead  under  my gate  and'lifts' it, oil' its hinges I think if time  ��������� to protest. I hope the constable will  at once see that.-thoso people confine  their pigs within limits. It will he too  late after a garden .has been despoiled  and a dead pig lying in the midst of it.  Xo one cares about spending months of  care and trouble watching and tending  a garilen'and their have it rooted up in  15 or 20"miniites by,nnother man's pig.  Besides, there i.s the law against allow-  *��������� ing pi.gs to run wild," aird tire constable  , .should see that it is enforced.  ������  *    - *  P. R.   Peterson  has soirre  oafs  arrd  clover- growing orr his land at the  foot  of Front Street.   No  doubt if looked  ,i very enticing from   the roadway,   and  one. of C. Turnros's cows took  air   idea  , uf sampling it. Accordingly she made  an attack on the fence.' and, having  heen victorious, had just begun to revel  in clover. But before she could enjoy  tbe stolen sweets. Nemesis appeared oil  tlie .scene in the person of file owner���������  not of the cow, but of the clover, lie.  promptly locked her up in his stable  and would not allow her, to be removed  until the sum of $o had been handed  over for the damage done to the fence.  It looked al one tinre as if a big I_tw.suit  were'' about to he commenced, but .Mr. I  Trirnros finally thought the quickest  way out was the best, and accordingly  slumped up the money and.the cow  was liberated. This might work very'  well .with a cow. but how about capturing and locking up a pig i  #  , , ��������� *  Although no news 'front the outside  world has reached the town lorn week  we have" had plenty of excitement to  keep us i������ a livelycoiidition. The. wind  on'Sunday   afternoon    played    some  - prufiks with several buildings, and'  several garden fences were leveled.  Tbe front part of a house occupied hy  some   Italians, on. Front   street    was  ������ ripped clean oil' thu gabie end, ami  portions went flying un and across the  street, striking" the nouses opposite  with considerable force. Mr. Cowan's  big warehouse was lifted off its foundations, and but for jaming against the  office next door would have been 'carried a considerable distance, the ollice  it-elf being -Topped ' from further pro-  {ri-es-* by a'fence.' Trees Were uprooted,  windows blown in and -perhaps the  nro.-t peculiar thing that ever happened   the big jam of logs in the old channel  up ihe river was blown up piecemeal,  and the river for quite an hour1 after  was strewn with a vast quantity of  debr't*. which passed under", the bridge  irr a big proci"--inn.  Before the excitement, caused by the  cyclone had died away the tin- engine  boll was heard ringing, nnd .-non the  streets were alive with the mernhivs of  the brigade and spcctaUirs. It wa.s not  two minute'* from tin* time of sending  the alarm until the engine was on the  spot���������at the end of Hanson street--  where a bush fire bad been started hy  a Chinaman who had lit a lire outdoors  TO boil his kettle. As the wind was  blow ing rhe fire away from the tmvn il  wasdecidednnttou.se Ihe chemical-.,  and the engine was taken back in lhe  Fireball amid a downfall of rain which  had begun lo lay the dust. Two or  throe other bush fires broke out in I h<"  townsit*' almost simultaneously, but  whether from the lightning or by human agency was not known. As they  wer" all at,.'i.safe distance from any  dwelling and , the . .wind hi .a. .favorable  direction no ���������.further, worry ; was iu-  dulgofl in oii their-account.'-....  The natural terminus of the wagon  road about tobe constructedfrom  Arrow Lake to Trout Lake City,  thereby tapping" the famous Lardeau mining* district.
