It is some time since 1 sent you any
news from Trout Luke, so I will commence about the'nrines.,
The Sunshine Ltd. or as it is locally
called the Gup never looked so well as'
'it, does at the- present time, this is the
voice of  lhe workmen and all interested in the development of the mine, and
district; this Lining the case il, is unfortunate  they should at this 'season of
the year lay olf men, when only a small
crew  of men are at work.   Six men, I
think, came down on Sunday last with
others to follow at an early date.    This,
cannot lie owing toTabor trouble as I
have   never 'hoard  of any here.    I do
not wish  to  criticise'. this   company's
'mode . of   woi kin-;, neither   is this intended   as   such,   hut   to   outsiders it'
seems, if'this property could be worked
constantly as it,.'deserves, it  would be
the   means   of   bringing   the   district
much more widelyjiofore,the public, as
nothing brings a district to the front so
quickly as a'^'dividend paying mine'or
mines,"   and   the    Sunshine   Limited
should,have ranked in this class for.the
past   two   year's' li'ad , it been wor ked,
that   is   worked   by   a   live-company.
Wh,y   or   wherefore     this    desultory
method of working  is'practiced is-beyond ordinary drctmprehensjon. though
Lhe company no doubt think they have
good  reasons  for   so doing, but-unfortunately British .Columbia as a whole
can't see it that way.        ' ' ���  u     .'..    .-,.
The Nettie L. has a great reputation
as an  oie producer, it  is'spoken or on
every hand as a good concern. Personally, I have not; seen thc mine for
some time, therefore cannot say practically'What'they have. The Nettie L.
���like the Cup is shipping small quanti-'
ties of ore, and they must have quite a
hundred tons 'at Thomson's Landing
and Arrowhead. ���' When they, commence stoping from the deep level it
should corne down the hill lively. Let
.her flicker I say. ���   , ' y   ,
.   The Rob Roy'is still'work ing some
. . ��   'i,
men,with  what results  I'cannot say,
good, I'hope.        '      ,,' ,        f****
��� The   Silver   Queen  is also   working
some   men, but I  have not the  least
t, i    '
idea what they are doing. These constitute the mines at work a.s far as I
remember! The Ethel'St. Elmo, and
other small fry have gone the way of
all flesh, died prematurely, young for
n winter's work.   *
There' are a few claim owners "doing
assessment work on various claims. 1
'wish them luck for the winter is pretty
tough for this kind of work unless they
are under cover.
^ , Is it possible 1 wonder to get a little
money spent to put the' wagon road.or'
better the sleigh road from 10-Mile*to
Ferguson',on the same basis as t tho
other part of the load, or between Ferguson and Thomson's Landing, that .2*
to cut the overhanging trees which is
such a-rmisance to the present users of
the road.*- -This road hasbeer\ irse-d for
all the ore shipped from the district of
any note, and  will  continue  the main
highway for the  ore outlet for a long
time to come..  It is all very,well in the
abstract to think of aerial tramways,
etc.,,etc., but Ihcy don't, grow on trees
neither can they he strung as  ������h.-'iplv ���
as the telephone wire in  thi':  di-triel,,;
therefore the road should be kept passable with as little inconvenience lo the
users of it as poss bio.     At the pi ijse'iit
time men are seen along the ro.-ul keeping it in "shape for the ore to be taken
over it, caused (-chiefly by overhanging
trees.     During   snowstorms  the snow'
lalls on the road  when  it is open making a hillock  on either side'of  a   kirire
tree, or clump/of trees and the r'uud i.-*
a see-saw of  pilch   holes for the whole
distance, making it impossible to,load
the horses as they might had the road
been even.    I might mention there are   ,
quite enough, hills  on  the road as the
constructor's   left   it   without    adding
hundreds per cent to it.   , The  cutting   ���
of the trees would help to  dry out the
road iii summer, which it greatly iH'pds   :
as it well doaway  with  pitcii lioles in
'winter. Tf the Mail can assist iu the ���
getting of this work, done now or later
it  will   render   the district a service.
The roads through  the  whole district ���

TUESDAY, MARCH, 0,   1000.  ' Till-: conservatives are worrying  themselves to death over, the possible  successor to Lieut.-Governor Mclnnes.  They say, it will be Hewitt Bosti'cl'.M.  V. This supposition mav be ' wliat  causes'tire worry.  continue it will be only a question of a  very short time when Canadians are  driven from the mines altogether. It  is supposed that this is being done bv  otdei of those mine owners who reside  across the sea and are only anxious for*  dividends*. It was this same class of  mine owners who a year or so ago  petitioned the Transvaal government  to repeal ,the laws protectirrg native  laborers, for-, it was claimed, there was  r  no reason why the Kaffir should be  allowed to earn ������23 per year toiling in  the'mines, and bigger dividends could  be paid if the protection of the labor  laws were removed. ' '  Tt is more than possible that trie  riven i. action''of the lieutenant-governor in dismisMni,' the Semlin ministry  'and oalIin������ in tlio'preserrt premier may  result in liis being relieved of his olViec.'  Mr.Semlin, speaking .in Victoria' Saturday said: " I do not see how the fed-  em]'authorities can very wel!', ignore  the extraordinary' manifestation  of disapproval made against  His Honour 'at , the proroga-'  , lion of the house on Thursday."  -Mr. Semlin certainly had \ery good  reasons, for speaking so, strongly, or he  would never have uttered tho --words  attributed to him. . r    "'  u There was a big ro-v  in the local'conservative Cilmp the other night.

The   Union   controversy,   as    it,   is  called, was advanced another1 stage in  the house of commons  last week when  Col.   Prior,   the   somewhat   indiscreet  friend   of   the   ex-G.O.O., not content  with  having'-precipitaled a discussion  which  did   his client  very little good,  lepeated tiie  blunder by calling attention   to   further ' indiscretions   on the  part of the i-xTnraj.ir-RPner.il. and asked,  the  government for an   expression of  'opTnion thereon.    Sir Willird  Laurier  quickly gratified   the   curiosity of the  gallant  member- from  Victoria, 'B.C.,  ��������� by a concise but plain statement which  "included the following words : "General   Huttoii   has    insinuated   that.. his  differences  with   tbe government are  due to a desire on the part of the latter  to exercise improper, political, influence  on   the   militia .organizations   of   the  country.    I desire on   the   part (if the  government to say-that  there  is absolutely no foundation  for such a statement.    The cause of difference, between  the government and Gen. Hutton, were  not over any broad questions of general policy; the causes of difference were  that  Gen. Hutton   was 'insubordinate  and indiscreet, and deliberately ignored the authorityof  the minister in the  ���������administration of thi?department. Tlie'  government desires to state tliat while  it will at, all times   be prepared to give  the most careful   consideration', to any  representations which may he,made by  tiie of'iicet commanding   the   militia,,ft  must be distinctly understood thai any,  'such officer, on   accepting  the position  in  question, becomes from   that -time  an officer   in   the   employment of, and  subject   in   all ,respects 'Id the government of Canada;  and  that  he is to,be  regarded as the adviser, but not as en-  tilled   to   control   the   department of  militia.    The, government  is  responsible to the   parliament  and   people  of  Canada for  the Ann administration of  each and  every .branch   of the  public  service/and   would t be   derelict   to it.-*  duty if it was to per;mit any subordinate  official, under, any  circumstances,  to take upon  himself- to   disregard the  instructions  he may receive  from, the  constitutional chief of his department."

'��������� Iri' the year 1725 an American boy  about 10 years old found himself in London, where he was under the necessity  of earning his liread.   <.'  He was not like many young men in  these days, who wandeiy about seeking  work and who are "willing to do anything," because they know how to do  nothing, but he had learned how to do  something; and knew just where to go to  . find 'something to do. So Ire wont  straight to"a printing oflice-and inquired  whether he could get employment.  "Where are you from?" inquired the  foreman.' .  '.'America," was the answer.  .   '   "Ah," said the 1'oroman, "from Amcri-  ' ca! ' A  lad   from   America  seeking employment   ns  n   primer!     Well,   do  you  -really   understand   the  art  of.. printing?

Philip'saith unto him, Come and see."  ,., It was done so quickly, so accurately  and administered a delicate reproof so  appropriately arid powerfully that it nt  once gave him influence' and standing  rwith all in tho oflice.

Women, Wlio Worlc anil I'lny.,  The   recreations'of   hardworking   women are so few and far between that tho  gleaner who goes out to find what- their  favorite amusements''are is apt to come  back with a small sheaf of information.  Athletic' men   are   usually   engaged   in  some more lucrative business than' riding  on    bicycles,   swimming   for   prizes   or  swinging'on horizontal bars, but, women  who are great golfers or riders or walkers usually devote most of their time to  these pursuits.   On the other hand, worn-'  en who work hard at sewing or bookkeeping, writing, acting, painting or studying  the   intricacies  of  law  or 'medicine  are  very-apt, to merely rest when they have  a respite from their professional labors.  'John   Strange 'Winter,  the novelist, has  compiled a list of i clever women, all  of  whom work hard-and manage to find time  'for a variety of other things besides.  She  herself declares' she finds her  "greatest  distraction   in  attending the sales,'of a  French auction room."  Among'the clever  women who play as well as work is Sarah   Bernhardt,   who loves painting and  sculpture and cycling."  In summer she delights in'fishing "and ,boating, nnd sometimes when,particularly energetic goes in  ,for tennis an'd cliff scaling,    lime, Sarah'  also tries her hand at literature and has  written   some  charming  sketches  about  tho sea and the fisher folk who live near  her summer,homo.  ��������� Ellen Terry is not athletic. r She says  rehearsals and performances provide her  with all the| exercise she cares to take,  so sli������ spends her infrequent 'leisure  hours driving, reading jand yachting.

As a rule, humnii beings are the only  anirnnl*- that require the ns!-if?tnnce oi  meolianica! appliances 'to improve their  sight, but there have been a few cases in,  our country of horses having been provided with spectacles to assist their failing;  riaioii. In Russia, however, it is custom-  (iry to put spectacles on the cows that  foam the great steppes, where the unow  lies white for six months at a time. Tho  cattle feed upon tho grass that po}ces  through or lies under tho light snow, and  they have to he supplied with smoked  'glasses to keep from becoming blinded by  the dazzling whiteness of tho plains. It  Is said that 50,000 old grandmother cows  wear spectacles half of the year in  llussia,  Fault Finding:. *  '  A mistress who is always finding fault  with her servants for this, that or the  other thing or,   as  they  themselves express it, "always driving and nagging at  them,"   will   never   keep   a   really  good  servant, even if~sE6^i^foi'riuiate���������eno'iigb"  to engage one.    If a maid  neglects her  work, forgets an. order or makes a mis-  ' take,  it is of course necessary to notice  the neglect, to point out the mistakes she  has made.    There is no necessity, howev-.  er, to do this angrily, hastily or sharply,  for  there   may   be  extenuating   circumstances   the   servant' has' to   plead   and  which when heard will disarm our wrath,  and to lose one's temper and speak sharply  unnecessarily  does  not  add   to  one's  dignity,  nor does it raise the respect a  servant ought to feel for her mistress, for  it is not easy to really respect a person  who has no control over either the temper or tongue.   Like one's grown up children, servants cannot bear to be found  fault with before other people, whether  -these'others are members of the family,  strangers or their own fellow domestics,  and if we think of the matter fairly we  can understand this dislike and see that  it is quite natural.  We ourselves do not like to be taken to  task in public or have any little mistake  we may have made remarked upon or  called attention to. Servants have just  the same ^feelings, for they are'not children riny more than i.s the mistress���������in  fact, they are often older then the latter.  A wise mistress, who wants to have and  to keep good servants, should herself do  any fault finding that may be required  nnd never, if possible to help it, deputo  tho task to any. one, not even a daughter,  especially if the latter is young and has  not had much if any experience of housekeeping, for servants, particularly elder  women, resent being corrected by a deputy.���������Lady Claire in Lady.
