A fine specimen  of  copper ore  was recently found on the 700 foot  level of the -White Bear.    A pc-  culiaiity  of it is  that it contains  small  garnets.      Tho  miner  who  found   the specimen has worked in  several mines of the camp and says  this is  tl'e first  time he has ever  seen    garnets in   the ore  of this  camp.     Garnets are very common  in    Alaska and  there   ara- places  where they can be picked up by the  bushel  on the.  Southern shores of  that country.  LcRoi���������Tlie   shipments   of  the  LeRoi  for the week ended last evening was 1:.G80 tons, and-it would  have  been  larger  had  there been  more ears  available..

The  section   west   of   theJo-dt* dike is  looking  well and so are the-newly  .found ore shoots in the other portions  of  the mine     It is not certain   when  the Northport smelter  will be able to soeurc coke, but it is  thought that a supply will come to  hand   not   later   than   a fortnight  hence.     As soon as a supply of  fuel  is  assured  the  output ofi the-  LeRoi   will   be   considerably   increased.

Une of  tho copper furnaces will be blown  iu   to-morrow and  the others will  bo  put in  operation as rapidly as  a supply of fuel is assured.    In addition to tho ore received from the  Rossland camp   ore  was sent  in  from   the following mines dliring  the past week: St. Eugene, Moyie,  01  tons; Eureka, Nelson, 22 tons;:  Ottawa,   Slocan,  20 tons.

Jas.   II.   Smith,   superintendent  at the Jewel   mine  in   Long Lake  camp, was in the city  this  week.  An old-time friend of his  who was  in a maudlin condition struck Jim  for a meal.    He was  taken   into a  a restaurant and a porterhouse and  half a dozen  eggs ordered.    Jim  went out on  business and  in half  an hour met tho old-timer who was  still  hungry.    Again they  visited  the restaurant and this time it was  bam and a half dozen which were  dispatched  by the old-timer.    By  this time jTiru.had become interest-  in   the  reducing    powers   of   his  friend, and resolved to test the capacity of the human   furnace.    In  about half an hour he again" visited  the restaurant with his  friend aud  ordered a dozen boiled.    Only, ten  disappeared.    Both were satisfied.  Jan   had learned  the actual capacity of his  friend,  and  the  old-  timer had.reached the limit.

Eat   a   pint  of peanuts and drink  two or three glasses of milk before  going to  bed,  said    he,  and  I'll  warrant   you'll   be asleep   within  half an   hour.     I  did as he. suggested,  and   now .for the benefit of  others  who  may be afllL'tcd with  insomnia,   I  feel  it to be my duty  to report what happened, fso  far as  I am  able thisf morning to recall  the details.     First let me say, my  friend  was  right,,     1  did  go  to  sleep  very  soon  after my  retirement.     Then   a. friend   with  his  head under  his arm  came along  and  asked   me if I wanted to buy  his  feet.     I  was negotiating with  him  when  the dragon on which I  was riding slipped  out of its skin  and left  mo  floating in   mid air,  While  I   was  considering  how  I  should  get down, a bull with two  heads peered  over the edge of the  well and said he would haul me up  if I would   first climb up and rig a  windlass   for   him.    So as  I was1  sliding down the mountain side the  brakeman   came  in,   and   I asked  him  when  the train would reach  my station.     We passed your station  four  hundred years ago,   he  said,   calmly   folding the train up  and slipping it into his vest pocket.  At   this    juncture   the   clown  bounded  into  the, ring and pulled  the center pole out of the ground,  lifting the tent and all the people  in it  up, up, up, while I stood on  the ground below watching myself  go out of sight among the clouds  above.  Then I awoke and found that I  had been asleep almost ten  minutes.���������The Good llealth  Clinic.

Waldorf Astoria, in New York',  relates  the  following incident and  vouches for its truth.   -  A nice looking old lady, who  bore unmistakeable signs of having  recently come from the country,  and who was apparently intensely  interested in conditions in- New  York oily, came, into the corridor  of this great hotel some mornings  ago, and was looking abofit her  with a most lively interest. An  attendant stepped up to her and  asked her what she wished; not  with any intention of discourtesy,  but with a very hiuinno desire to  assist her, in any possible way.  1 know well enough what I want,  she said, but I don't know whether  you are the man 1 should go to.  Are you the owner or the manager  of this hotel ?  No, madam, I am neither, but J  can speak for the management and  would be glad to serve, you in any  way. She was such a rice old  woman that the heart of even a  New York hotel attiichc warmed  toward her.  Its jiiofc this waj-, mister, she,  said. I am visiting some- friends  up toAvn, and broke away today  to look about a lit tie and see some of  the sights of this town." lamGS  years old  and I  live  'way   up in  With that he gravely returned  tho nickel, and with many a pleasant "Thank j'ou. sir', for your  kindness," ��������� she moved slowly out  of the dining room, smiling upon  everybody as she went.���������Minne-  apolis-Journal-  Ni  York.  , I"   have   hoard tell  Ts under the management of jGreig  & Alorrison.

WORK   GUARANTEED  Mail Orders Promptly Attended  Next Door to Reading Room  P   O    GOX   260  about this place for many years aud  I have always thought that I would  die happy if I could only take one  meal here. I would like to go  back and tell the friends at home  that I had eaten at the Waldorf���������  whatever the rest is���������aud what I  wanted to ask" you mister, was if I  could get a meal hero for fifty  cents.  Just at that moment Oscar, the  genial general manager of the  place, whom everybody knows, was  passing. Overhearing this question, he stopped and looked at the  old lady.- Like everybody.else, he  warmed toward her instantly.  Good morni'ig, madam, he said  with his most polite bow. Did I  understand you to ask whether  you'could get a good meal here for  fifty cents ?  Yes, sir, said the old lady, that  is about all that I can afford to  spend as I wish to buy some little  things for the children, and must  look out for my ticket home. -I  don't suppose that would go very  far in this hotel would it?  You were never more mistaken  in your life, madam, said Oscar,  with his most polite bow. We  can give you a very good meal here  for less money than that. You  come with me and I will see that  you are taken care of immediately.  . With that he led her into the  main dining roira, personally  seated her at a table next the Fifth  avenue windows, and asking to be  excused for a moment took thc  waiter aside and gave him some  very definite instructions'. Then  Oscar returned to her and said:  You leave it to me its to what we  serve you, and I will see that you  are well taken care oe.  I know you   will,   the old lady  said, with a beaming smile.  There have been no luncheons  served at the Waldorf-Astoria in  j the last month or so more calculated  to please a nice old lady from upstate than   was  placed   upon  her  .table  that day.     It was nob elaborate, . uor  was  ib French,   but a  icareful   selection   of things that  'would certainly satisfy her, ending  ; with an  elaborate cut of hiickle-  ; berry pie.  ; The old lady did justice to her  i meal, and when it was over she  ! turned to the waiter and said: Bo  I pay you sir, and how much is my  Cobst Stories  The    following ' stories   in  the  Toronto  papers are about people  well   known  in the Uoundary and  Knotensy..       -  A'million   d illar deal only takes  a  few iiiinut.es sometime--, was the  remark.of a  man  present.,  when'  the    University    mine, was sold.  Two of the owners of the L*i Kose,  John   Martin  and  (I think) Dave  Dunlop,   walked  into  the. office of  the  University  mine at 10 Jordan  street,   Toronto,   where  President  George Gleiidenning    was sibling  chatting to a caller.    Good morning-   gentlemen.      Good   morning  George.      We hear the University  mine is for sale, George, was John  Martin'.'; querry.     Jt is if we get  the  price,   was  the pre.-idenL's reply.  What is the price? came back  from  John.     One million dollars,,  was the, short but neat reply.    The  terms, quoth Business John.    The  answer is not for publication.    We  will take the the mine, said Martin  ami   Dunlop  and- a million-dollar  deal was   closed   and    in   a   few  ruiuutes papers signed.    Goodbye  George,   said   John Martin twenty  minutes later and wires l.egan'-to  get hot.  Artie Ferlaud, now at the  Walker fL-use, was one of the  original owners of what is now  known as the Nipissing mine, and  since he and his fellows parted  with it at $200,000 they have been  wondering why someone did not  tell them how foolish they were.  Gut Artie tells' a very good story  about something that happened to  him about six -months ago. A  man came into Mattawa, where  Artie is one of the representative  citizens, and known as a stalwart  Conservative for miles around, and  showed him a piece of gold-bearing" quartz.1 Thc maiv v, ith the  quartz said he found it in the vicinity of Lardo lake. It was a  thing of beauty, and after his experience with the Nipi^ing mine  Artie .began to reckon himself a  millionaire if ' he could only get  hold of the claim that contained  such quartz.  In due season Artie and his  friends parted with 83000 for this  gold brick, and the claim from  which ib was taken, which claim  thc man with the quartz said he  owned. To this 65,000 had to be  added S2500 for equipping an exploration party to go up to Lardo  lake district and peg down the  claim.  The sequel of thc story is that  there was no such claim and no  such ore was found in the vicinity  Lardo lake and that Artie and his  friends parted not only with 85000  and an additional ������2500 but gob  nothing in reborn.  At this stage of the story the  the question is asked Artie, Where  did that fellow get that gold-bearing quartz? and Artie always replies:    The Lord only knows.  A <Fruit Ranch  The cost of making a twenty-  , acre orchard in British Columbia  is stated  to be variously estimated  from .������2,500  to ������3,500, accord'ng  to first cost of the land and local  ���������labor conditions.     The care and;  maintenance of the orchard for five  years,   or  unl-il  it  begins to bear,  would  cost about  82,500, less the  value of small  f. nits   aud  cege-  tablcs planted   between  the  trees  and thc fifih year's return of fruit,  which, in all,' should pay the original   cost   of   the   trees.     In the  .sixth year the orchard should produce  8S50  worth   of fruit-, iii the  seventh  83,200,  and in tlie ninth;  $5,S00, after which ib should pay a  neb annual  profit of 8123 bo $150  per acre���������an  assured  income for  life of $2,500 to  83,000   a year.  This estimate of profit; is based on  actual  experience," and records obtained from Mr. T. W.
