The Tunnel.  Assvoik'ron  tho tunnel  will be  commenced in a  few  days, a.  fesv  words about -the' ground   svhich it  will open up may prove of interest  to our   readers.    The   high-grade  ���������mines of   Greenwood   havo   been  worked ��������� for   years   with   varying  success,   and  comprise an area of  about three miles square north and  eastofMhe losvn so far as yet  discovered.    The first of these claims  to be developed .was ibe Providence  and  to   Win.' Fowler is due   the  credit of "discovering'' tbe  values  in the high-grade veins.   Mr. Fosv-  ler took a lease and  bond  on   the.  property and  shortly  aftes  made  a sliipmeut.    The smelter returns  did not come up to expectations or  assays.    He protested and insisted  on his rights.    The B. C. smelters  formed  a combine and refused to  treat   bis   ore.      He   (ommenced  shipments to Colorado, and  then  lhe local smelter men  came to him  on  their knees.    Fosvler ��������� made a  small  fortune out of- the   Providence and sold to a local syndicate  for 850,000.    The syndicate  paid  for the claim  by shipments, but,  unfortunately,    allowed , Chicago  parties  to acquire  a  majority in-  interest,   after  which  tho  mining  svas done principally in newspapers  The  splendid   results   obtained  from the Providence,   lead  to development being started on a number of other claims  in  its immediate neighborhood, among them the  Elk horn,   the   Fremont   and   the  Strath more.    Considerable ore svas  shipped from   the  Klkhorn,   but a  fault in the, vein necessitated prospect work and the vein has not yet  been picked up.  Development on the Fremont  consisted of a 170-foot shaft on the  ore and drifting. The ore..is rich  but no shipments have been made.  ie tunnel will be started on  Nelson, below and svest of tbe  StiMthmore. ' Tho first of the high  grade veins which it is expected the  tunnel svill encounter will be on  the Stratlnriore. Under Superintendent Shaefer mining operations  svere carried  oa  for about  three  stoped when the mino was shut, lo ho installed as soon as the build-  down, apparently without cause  On bis inspection Dr. Peacock;of  New York said it was one of the  host developed claims bo had examined. Work done consisted of  a 150-foot shaft and crosscut 2-10  feet to vein. A drifting run 1000  feet on the ore.  Next to tbe Slrathmore is tbe  Defiance, iu which it is,pos-ib!e  that the Prince Henry vein will be  picked up. Fiom the D^ftime  tbe tunnel will' run through the  Lake, Don Pedro, Coro Canadian,  Crescent Fraction   and   Orescent,  ing is ready.  Tbe shaft on the Dlamoad-Texis  ia doivn JGfl feet and is becoming  svell mineralized. The iron in the  bottom of the shaft would indicate  that the ore body is nob bar away,  ft is expected the shaft svill run  into tlie vein at a depth of uptween  105 and 175 feet.  T  tho  touching on the Last Chanco, all  more or less proven on the surface.  From there on to -Phoenix the  ground litis all been located. If  tbe veins proven on the surface are  encountered by the tunnel, svith  the leser cost of mining, the belt  should prove ono of the richest iu  the sve6t.  'The Rambler.  J. W. Nelson received word last  week   from   his partner,    W,   H  Eambt), that a rich vein of ore had  been struck in  the  north crosscut  from the  tunnel  in  the  Rtuibler  mine on Wallace  mountain.    The.  vein is 8 inches in width  and runs  in the neighborhood of 500 ounces  in  silver.    The  tunnel  had   been  run 2S0 feet,  and  crosscuts   were  run north and south from this   At  a distance of 20 feet north  from  the tunnel  the   veiu  was  encountered.    The Rambler  svas  located  iulSOSby W. H.  Kunbo and   P.  J. Kennedy.    Tbe  mine has been  developed by an 80-foot shaft, and  from this a crosscut  was  run 101  feet and the ore  drifted  on.    Another shaft svas sunk  30  feet, and  a tunnel run 2S0   feet.    Five   cars  of ore have been  shipped from the  mine, running a-s losv  ni 871 and  as high as $173 to the too in silver,  and averaging SI 10 to the ton.   On  the Standard  Fraction, an adj.iin-  cbiim owned by the same parties,  a shaft has been sunk  30 feet, and  a tunnel run 70 feeo on the vein.  years with a small force, and 630-  000 worth of ore shipped to tbe  smelter.

Mistake.  A mining section svhich  is coming rapidly to  the  front is  Sheep  creek, in the Salmo district, on account of its  recent discoveries of  rich gold ore.    A number of deal=  have lately been  put through, but  an option taken tip last  month ou  one property serves as an   illustration   tint   it  is unsviso  to   count  your   chickens    before   they   are  batched.    It appears thnt a Sheep  creek prospector gave a 00 day option at a low  figure on  one of his  holdings to a party in Nelson. The  time limit included  the month of  February, svhich has only 28 diys.  His  miscalculation   of   the   short  month  was  his undoing, as iu the  meantime the prospector, in tramping over the optioned' property uncovered a very rich  ledge  of gold  ore.    It was coining to the clo-ie of  the option period, and  the holder  intended   to  let  the de-il  go  by,  when the prospector,   elated  possibly with his find, or miscalculating the, short month,  of February,  proceeded to Nelson and  exhibited  his     samples.      They    contained  chunks of gold as thick' as a man's  linger,  and  naturally  their   richness created a furore.    In a short  time the holder of the option heard  about   it,   and  on  examining  his  papers found he bad still two daya  to  take  up  the  option, svhich lis  promptly did,   to "the prospector's  disru-iy, svho figured the time limit  from month to  mouth,   and  made  no   allowance   for only  2S   days  in Februarv.

AFFAIR WITH MARRIED WOMAN  An Adventure That Landed Knight of  the Road In Jail Along With Runaway Wife of a Connecticut Farmer.  Experience  In New Jersey.  [Copyright, 100S, by T. C.

I have met  svith this spirit of adventure and romance in svoiucn lll'ty times over, and  sometimes it has caused nio considerable- trouble.  ''You have hoard of Iho tramp being  arrested for burglary, robbery, arson,  "I FOUND A WEAK SPOT IN THE WALL AND  WlOiT OUT."  thieving, assault, and so forth, bul did  you ever hear of one being arrested  for eloping svith a married svonian?  No? Well, that was one ot' my first  adventures. I struck a farmhouse one  day in Connecticut, and the farmer's  wife gave me the best dinner I had  had in a mouth. She svas very inquisitive about life on lhe road, and she  gave mo to understand that she was  not living happily with her husband,  lie svas asvay from home that day,  and before wo svere through talking  she announced that she proposed to  flee from home and become a dilapidated gentlesvoman. Yes. sir, she was  going to take to the road and become  a tramp, and in my company at that,  and she was so determined that it  scared me. I began to argue with her,  but she cut me short. She'd either  lake to the road or jump dosvu the  family well.  ���������'The only svay out of it for me svas  to promise to wait for her at a  certain crossroads three miles asvay that  night.   She svould have given  me all  her  husband's   spare  clothing  and  a  sum of  money,  but   I .wouldn't- take  them.    I   didn't  wait for  her  at  the  crossroads, as agreed, but went on for  , four miles farther and turned in under 'a~ hay stack.   I routed out at daylight just as she came along looking  for me, and as sve stood there in the  road arguing her -husband and a constable came along, and ss-e were gathered in.   The''husband'wanted to kill  me  on   the  spot,   and   the   constable  promised me a thousand years in state  prison.    The  wife   svas   taken   back  homo by force, and I was run into jail  and  afterward   given   a   sentence  of  ninety "days.' They svere a little doubtful about the elopement charge, and  so they changed it to vagrancy.   After  live days in the coop I found a. weak  spot in  the wall and svent out, and  over twenty, other prisoners followed  me.  I think I'squared things.  Resembled Another Man.  "In Pennsylvania, once upon a time,  .1 motherly woman, the wife of a village carpenter, opened the kitchen door  to me and then yelled out 'To:-.!' and  reeled  back  Into  a  chair.   My  name  isn't Tom, and it took me ten minutes  to solve that puzzle,   it appeared that  I closely resembled a certain Tom to  whom she was engaged several years  before -and   svho   mysteriously  disappeared.   After svalting a year for him  to show up she married the carpenter,  but   was   an   unhappy   woman.- Say,  nosv, that svoman 'must have been awfully nearsighted mid  had something  wrong with'her ears, or  my  resemblance to her lost Tom must have been  something marvelous.   It was no use  .for me to deny,that I svas Tom. I had  'lila look and voice and build, and, hav-  ���������   ing found me, she did not propose to  lot mo go again.  She svas Just set on  going on the tramp svith me, and svhen  she svent Into hysterics over It I could  think of no other plan but to agree. I  was to wait for her at a bridge over n  river five miles asvay, but I Intended  to keep walking all night. See what a  (rick luck played me.  "A farmer halted mo before I reached the bridge and offered me n dollar '  and a night's lodging to help him kill  a  fat steer.    Next  morning the woman  was  picked   tip at  the  bridge,  where she had waited for hours, and  noon thereafter 1  svas a prisoner.    I  admitted'nothing and denied nothing.  She was a  woman,  you see.    They  didn't charge hip svith alienating the  life's  affections,   hut   svith   firing  a  haystack six or seven miles away.   I  was railroaded to jail for six months,  kept in 'chains for twenty days as a  - desperado,   and    then   I   went   out  ' through a hole in the ss'all and loft a  flaw lug old barrack behind mc.   I am  no man to go back on n svoman, but  ' yon sce-flhc had,eloped by herself nnd  " with herself.    I  hadn't anything  to  do'with It., They simply dragged mo  Into the affair'by tho hccla, and it cost  , the county $rJO,000 to build n now Jail.  . Tho old  ono  must havo caught flro  ' through spontaneous combustion.  "One August day a fesv years ago 1  woa-liaadwl for Newport and my villu  when i suss' smoke issuing from a  farmer's baril, 1 jumped the roadside  fence, ran to the barn and sasv that  it svas on fire and then hustled for  the house and gave the alarm. The  fanner hud two hired men, and the  family were eating dinner. All rushed  for the bnru, but it was too late. J  svorked as hard as any otie In trying  to save tilings aud as a reward svas  taken into custody as an Incendiary.  The farmer pretended to remember  that I hud come along two or three  years before and made threats because  he svould not feed me.  "1 svas lucked up iu the smokehouse  svhilo messenger.-, svere sent for a constable. Travelers on the higlisvay and  other fanners gathered, a;i?l for a  time there svas talk of stringing me  up to a limb. Did 1 protest and deny?  Not a word. It svould have, been  breath throsvn asvay. I caught just  one sympathetic look in that crosvd,  and that svas from the farmer's svife.  Soon after I had been locked up the  lire spread to a svagon shed, calling  lhe crosvd asvay. and then the svoman  citme to the smokehouse and passed  me a cross-bar through a little svlcket  and said:  " 'Dig your svay out through the  back svall as soon as you can. My  husband set the barn on fire svith his  pipe, but they svill send you to prison  If you don't get asvay.'  Stammered His Thanks.  ''I began to stammer my thanks, but  she cut me short by saying that she  sv.uild meet mo ut a certain (lend tree  a mile dosvn -the road at 11 o'clock  that nK'ht and go on the tramp svith  me, and so I turned to my svork. The  smokehouse svas of brick, but I busted  out a wall in five minutes and took log  bail through the orchard. At 11 o'clock  (hat night I svas ten miles asvay and  still going. I can't say that the woman  kepi the dead tree date, but the  chances are even up that she did. She  probably called it a case of ingratitude  on my part, but il wasn't. It svas  doing tlio best Ihing for her to keep  asvay.  "To get a case nearer homo, I came  into losvn tsvo sveoks earlier last fall  than usual on account of a svoman. In  sauntering through Nesv Jersey a constable picked me up on a charge of  horso stealing, the very last offense  againat the law that a dilapidated gen-  tictnan svould think of committing.  Ho might as svoll steal a sawmill,  nowever. I should probably have been  convicted of the crime had not the  real thief confessed. That put the  court iu a hole, and to got oven svith  mo 1 svas charged svith being a suspicious person and given a sentence of  thirty days. Over in Jersey you aro a  suspicious person if you can't toll hosv  far it is from the Cape of Good Hope  to Nosv Zealand. It svas thirty days or  a fine of !?10, and a widow among the  spectators in court stopped forsvard  and came dosvn svith the cash. She  said 1 could go home svith her and  svork out the line trimming tho orchard and digging potatoes, and she  pretended to see the closest kind of  resemblance between mc and a schoolmaster svho had once loved her, but  died before the matrimonial knot could  be tied. What did I do? Why, just as  any sensible, chivalric dilapidated gentleman should do. You could sec romance, sentiment and a spirit of adventure in that svoman's eyes, and  after expressing my thanks for her  kindness I got out of the courtroom  through a window and ran for dear  life. Several men took after mo, but  they stood no shosv. Wheu a d. g. is  running away from a ss'oman filled  with romance and ready to go tramping he has wings, and it takes an aeroplane to overhaul him."    -M. QUAD.  TWO  LOVERS.  HER  FLOW  OF WIT.

Then the Tide Turned, and One Great  Misfortune Followed Another Till  He Was Almost Swept Out of Europe by the Treaty of Berlin.  The '.'Terrible" Turk," svho may be  taken as typifying the empire of the  sultans, holds one record at ��������� least  svhich he is not likely to be deprived  of. Ho has svou and lost more territory than any other nation.      ,v  There svas a time svhen the sultan  was the bugbear of the svqi-IiI. Even  little children In Engiand shook In  their shoes svhen they heard his name  mentioned, and those peoplo svho lived  anysvhero near him dared uot call their  lives their osvn.  Uut at last the tide turned. The  Turk began to lose, and one groat misfortune follosved another.  Spain svas the lirst big bit of the  Turkish empire to break free. Tho  Moors, svho svere lubjoct and paid  tribute lo the sultan, wero driven from  province after province until at length  they svere cooped up in tho solitary  kingdom of Granada.  Tho last Moorish king to reign in  Spain svas lioalxlll-ol-Chaco, or Bonb-  dil the Unlucky, in 1IS2 Ferdinand  and Isabella, the king and queen of  Aragon and Castile, declared svar on  hlni, und in 1-1012 he had to surrender  every thing.  Hungary, which nosv forms half of  the dual monarchy of the Emperor  Francis Joseph, svas a province of the  sultan for IHO years. Then it was torn  from him by the ssvord.  After this came the turn of the  czars. The Russians, svhom he once  despised, have been the Turk's worst  enemies. They have either robbed him  themselves or encouraged others to rob  him.  refer tho Great sot the example, but  was not, on tho whole, very successful  in his wars against I lie Moslems. At  one time the Turks could have captured and massacred Peter and his army, but svere frustrated by the slave  girl, Catherine, svhotn Peter had married.  Catherine the Groat tore tho Crimea  from the unhappy Turk, together svith  thousands of square miles of territory  along tho shores of the Caspian.  In 1S21 the Greeks, svho had been  slaves of tho sultans for many centuries, rose in rebellion and drove the  Turks out of the country. But then  tho Greek leaders began to quarrel  among themselves, and c. /il svar follosved. Tho Turk took the opportunity  to seize the country once more.  But the massacres and other horrors  which followed aroused Europe. In  1S27 (he Turkish (loot svas destroyed  at Nayarlno The combined fleets of  Britain. Franco and Russia took part  in tho opera tion. ���������  In 1S2S Greece svas acknowledged as  a free and independent kingdom, svith  a king of its osvn.  For nearly a century Egypt, which  (ho Turk conquered in Gil, has boon  part of the sultan's empire in little  more than name, and since 1SS2, svhou  (ho English occupied Pharaoh's country after Arabi Pasha's rebellion, the  Turk has had practically nothing to do  with Egypt.  The Moorish corsairs svho had their  Inlr iu the pirate city of Algiers ac-  knosvledged the sultan as their suzerain, but svere defiantly Independent ns  regarded all tho rest of the world.  Their ssvift sailing dhosvs preyed on  the commerce of all Europe, and from  start to finish they seized many thousands of while captives, many of  whom Ihey ransomed, while others  they (loomed to slavery.  When asked to keep his piratical  subjects in order (lie sultan declared  himself helpless to do anythiug. The  freebooters svent ou doing as they  liked for a long lime. Then Franco  became svoary of patience and forcibly  took possession of tho city in 1S.������>0.  ."Since then she has annexed, C07.0SO  square miles of Algerian territory once  subject to lhe sultan.  Then came tho Turk's svorst time.  Russia made svar on him, and the Balkan states, which had boon hold as  provinces by Turkey for hundreds of  years, res-oiled, Hew to arms and did  every thing they could on the side of  Russia. Had the czar boon loft to himself (ho Turkish empire svould have  been practically destroyed. The other  groat posvers. however, svere afraid to  soo Russia too powerful. They Insisted on summoning the congress of Berlin.  By tho tonus of tho treaty of Berlin  the Turk svas almost swept out of Europe. Bosnia and Herzegovina wore  handed over to Austria (o keep In order. Itoumaula, Servla and Montenegro were declared absolutely Independent of hlni. Bulgaria svas created Into  a principality, nominally under the  sultan's suzerainty, but In reality free.  And (hon Austria annexed Bosnin and  Herzegovina.

Where and How Forks and Spoons  "Ouoht to Go."  Many inexperienced hostesses who  wish to give a more or less formal  luncheon or dinner are not quite sure  how forks and spoons should go..  Custom varies somewhat in this respect, and just at present it is not so  much in favor to have an array of  silver resembling a jeweler's display  at each plate.

The spoons and knives, In their order,  are at the right of the plate.  If most of the forks and spoons are  not on the table In the beginning, the  order of serving should be ns follows:  If a fruit punch or bouillon are used,  the glass holding the punch should  stand on a doily on a dessert plate, and  the spoon for the course is also laid  on the plate. Tho bouillon cup and  saucer should be ou another plate, and  the spoon should be at the right of  the plate.  The forks and knives for tho main  courses are at the sides, also the fork  for the salad, but It is better to have  the ice cream fork and spoon passed  on tho plate after the table is clear, as  it makes the table ciuttery to have  them there during a long meal, also  makes clearing the table more difficult.

This must be kept in mind to appreciate the points of tho story.  During the hearing by the Privy  Council at London of the appeal in  the famous Steel-Coal controversy,  Wallace Nesbitt appeared for the  Dominion Iron & Steel Co., but for  the purpose of argument before the  learner] court, the Steel Company retained Sir Robert finlay to appear for  them.

Finally, hosvever,  the chairman of the court spoke up  after a little extemporaneous address  from Mr. Nesbitt, delivered, as the  court thought, in the svrong place,  and gazing at Sir Robsrt Finlay, addressed him thus:  "It would greatly facilitate the present hearing of this case, sir, if you  could manage to keep 'Your Junior*  quiet."

In an article ou "Nerves" published  In Harper's Bazar tho story is told of  one of our noted scientists who went  to Dresden to consult the famous  specialist for broken down nerves. Od  hearing his symptoms the great physician said indifferently:  "Ach so? It is probable;that you  have���������yes, all the golehrtcii flearnedl J  have neurasthenia naturally."

Silence, solitude and sleep are the  sovereign remedies suggested for jagged nerves. Slight dally doses of tho  throe "S's," it is claimed, svill prevent  a nervous breakdown and may be obtained by'even the most busy people.  But "all the learned have neurasthenia" is at once a warning and a consolation to the brain worker. To  "drive the machine" with skill and  care is the problem of the successful  American.

The name, by  the svay, since many aro in doubt in  this matter, is pronounced as if spelt  Magsviggnn. From the time when in  order to help his svidosvod mother he  started out as a svater boy on a construction gang until he resigned the  general managership of the Grand  Trunk Railway, Mr. McGuigan's life  was one of strenuous activity.  On one occasion svhen, as superintendent of a United State3 line, he  was fighting a snosv blockade, he never took off his- clothes for seventy-tsvo  hours. For forty-eight hours he had  no sleep, and during all this time  nothing to eat except sandsviches eaten standing up between rushes at the  snowbanks. Talking of that time long  afterward he said he fought like this  because he was young and ambitious  to make a record for keeping his division open. Asked if, with his added  experience, he would do it os'cr again,  he said he svould not. ��������� On tho contrary, when he became convinced that  a heavy blizzard svas on and a block-  ado absolutely unavoidable, he would  issue an order to keep all trains at  the terminals and all engines in the  roundhouses till the storm svas over.  Then, svhen tho storm was past, thoy  could start out to clear the line with  a lot of fresh men and live engines  instead of having to dig out frozen  trains and "dead" engines with a  force of tired and half-frozen men.

Adventures of a Party of Explorers In  a Journey Over the Broken Pack  Ice���������The Solid Wall of Wind That  Flanked a Friendly Iceberg.  The arctic explorer has always had  hardship and danger enough, but the  antarctic discoverer has far more terrible conditions to meet. Luckily he  meets them with all the equipment  and method that arctic exploration has  taught mankind. Yet they are most  dangerous, as the story of those who  have lived through the south polar,  winter night can testify. One of tho  experiences of Bernacchi on the 'cruise  of tho Southern Cross some years  ago shows what an antarctic gale  menus.  He and a comrade, Elllfsen, started  out on a short slodge journey lo carry  provisions from one camp to another.  It was in September, and tho broken  ice pack over svhich they must travel  was but a foot aud a half thick and  likely to break in pieces afresh or pile  up in deadly masses at the mercy of  the sea and svind. The. two men had  three sledges and eighteen dogs. They  had hardly started before tlio wind  rose and a gale threatened. Halfway  to their destination there was an iceberg imbedded in the pack Ice, -and  they hastouod to reach this before the  storm should break.  Tor five'hours they toiled over-the  Ice, the wind gradually rising. The  gale broke in fury just as they reached the iceberg, under whose lee they  pitched a tiny silk tent, into which  thoy crawled after having fed their  dogs as best they could. Hour after  hour the wind raged, and the .llier-  nometer went to 9 degrees.below zero.

In  the   sudden   death   of   William _  Wylie at his home in Edmonton the i  other day, there passed from the scene  of northern activities a man who spent  46 years of his life practically isolated  from civilization in the great svilds of  the' Athabasca  district.    Up to -September-last Mr. Wylie had been for  all those years in the employ of the  Hudson Bay Co. at Fort Chipsveyan.  At the present time there is only ono  white man, Timothy Gaudette, of Fort  Good Hope, who has lived longer in  the north than he. So fond did he become of the isolated life that he rarely  left the post.    This  fall he  went 10  Winnipeg,  but  could  not  live there,  and returned to Edmonton with the  intention, it is believed, of returning  to  Fort Chipsveyan  in  the  spring if  death had not terminated his career.  This old settler svas a Scotchman,  and Dr. Mackay of Edmonton, a retired Hudson Bay physician said of him:  "I never knosv a finer man. nor one  with  a   keener   sense    of   honesty."  When  he  arrived   at  Edmonton  last  September, mention was made of him  for up to that time ho had never seen  a steam car or a telephone, and could ���������  not imagine such a thing as an automobile.

When the first shock occurred ho sasv the mother take her child  in both hands, nnd hold it up anxiously. As the coach toppled over she  fell buck, holding lhe child high above  her head and safe above the debris of  broken seats and shattered glass. The  mother herself was thrown' right  across the car 'arid svas pinned down  by the seats that fell around her. She  seemed to be suffering pain from injured hips and logs, but hor one  thought seemed to bo her child. Her  husband escaped svith an injured  hand. He took the child and passed  it out of the car, svhilo others helped  him to carry Mrs. Knosvles from the  wreck.  -������������������������!���������     ,������������������ .���������������������������������������������...��������� ������������������-.    .   .     ,,���������������������������������������������  A Costly Promise.  An amusing lit tie story is being told  of Miss 'Lilian McCarthy, tho well-  known actress and svifo of Mr. Granville Barker. When she was ten years  old hor father, svishing to train her  momory, bribed her with n sovereign  to learn the second book of "Paradise  Lost." 80 rapidly did sho commit the  words to memory that ho again offered her 10s. to learn "Romeo nnd Juliet," svhich svas no light undertaking.

Medicines of the old fashioned kind  svill sometimes relies-o the symptoms  of disease, though they never touch  the disease itself���������they never cure.

Worst-of all,  it seemed as if the-Ice was beginning  to crack. They knew well that the  Iceberg which protected them from the  full force of the storm was- the most  dangerous place possible in other  ways, as the ice was sure to separate  first immediately round the borg,  throwing tent, men and dogs into the  icy seas. The cracking of ice was now  to be heard above the roar of the  wind. They dared not stay in their  shelter.  A little to the east,  Bernacchi remembered, was a cave In the body of  the iceberg.   Once in that, they would  not at least be precipitated into the  sea, even if they were carried away,  Iceberg and all.   It was so dark that  the wall of the berg could not be seen  even when the hands touched it.   Tlio  two   explorers  groped ' as   best  they  could along the slippery walls, both  hands  on   the  ice  and  their  bodies  pressed against it.    Halfway around  they  loft the leo side and  met the  gale.   It came like a solid thing, bearing them back and down.    Not one  Inch could they more against it, and  further exposure meant death.   They  groped   back,   blinded,   deafened   and  almost paralyzed with cold, to shelter.  Then they commenced a toilsome hunt  for a foothold on the lee side somewhere.   Toward morning thoy found a  low  spur or projection, upon  which  thoy scrambled aud lay down perfectly exhausted in the snowdrifts, which  grew each moment.   To this they owed  their lives, for the snow soon covered  them and kept in the warmth of their  bodies.  Thoy dared "not sleep for fear of  never waking, so they roused each  other alternately. At last day broke,  and the gale abated. Crawling over  the snow, their garments frozen stiff  as boards, their beards solid lumps of  Ice, they managed to reach their tent.  The Ice had not broken, though it was  cracked here and there. They took  food, slept, fed their dogs, who wore  deep in the drifts, but alive, and then  courageously wont abend, "not caring  to be beaten," as Bernacchi expressed  it. It was 8 o'clock at night before  they reached camp, but the next day  they were exploring and taking photographs and observations just as usual.

Tub Lepok is unfortunate in
nob being able to appeal to the
the higher inti'lligenc3 of some of
our citizens on the tunnel question. "Vote for the tunnel and
have Boundary creek lined with

of argument far above us. If in
