So be  careful when you roll your blankets  and throw that lighted match  into the brush.  "Upon the 12th day of April the  thermometer in Greenwood touched  90 in the shade, but fell to 38 in  the night. That is remarkable  weather even for Greenwood. During July just passed the thermometer ranged from 36 to 96 which  shows that we have the best climate  in the world.  A female fly will deposit 150  eggs at a laying. In warm weather  these eggs hatch in eight hours. In  ten days they are able bodied flies  able to lay more eggs. In killing  the first, ily, how many later flies  do you destroy?  Thinking Themes  Does love spring from the Hex-  instinct, and is it but a modification of that? There are some who  believe this. I do not. As for  tho reason that I love many persons where the sex-instinct does  not enter into my feeling at all; as  for instance, my brother, mother,  daughter or friend.  This, however, is true, that love  has a powerful affinity for the sex-  inotive, as alcohol has for water.  The sex-feeling strongly inspires  and intensifies love. And loyal  love redeeniH passion from its degrading tendency aud makes it  pure aud wholesome. But they remain two distant things.  Love is the forthputting of the  forces of life. We do not know  what* life ia, but we do kuow what  ever it appears it manifests itself by  loving.  Life moves in widening circles;  so we see love out from the individual to tho family, tho state,  mankind, God. For love of God  is the awakening to life of the  highest functioning of the human  soul.  It is but natural that life should  express itself in its intensest form  in the creative instinct. This is at  once the most essential aud the  moBt dangerous form of love.  Without it the race would perish.  It is the inspiration of our art, our  literature and all the more interesting elements of our career. It also  fills our prisons and supplies our  never ending tragedy.  Love is life, And life ia baffling.    The fame of many a popular  author is due to the Bheep- nature  of men. If the bell-wether jumps  the fence all the sheep follow him.  The run of popularity is like a  conflagration. When it gets started it Bweepa all before it.  When "everybody's reading" a  book we must preforce read it too.  Who can resist the latest fad, le  dernier cri? The mob is our master.  And I am not so sure but that  the reputation of so-called great  authors rest not a little upon our  facility of imitation.  I do not undertake to decry  Homer and Virgil, Milton, Eacine  and Schiller, but I would ask you,  gentle reader, to tell me honestly,  do yon think these writers to be  great because you have read them,  because yon appreciate them and  personally lovejthem, or because  you do not dare raise your voice  against the judgement of the  world?  Is it not true that the books  universally praised are universally  neglected?  On the contrary, whatever a  famous man's name is set to is  praised indiscriminately. Victor  Cousin called sublime certain pas  sages in Pascal, which were discov  ered to be additions by a copyist.  ���������Dr. Frank Crane.  The Coquitlam Star says;���������That  the remarkable* growth, development and potentialities of Port  Cocmitlaui are being observed with  interest by many people, in all  directions outside the city's limits  is well known. Further evidence  of this is found iu an article by  Mr. Calvin Goss, editor of the<  Mission City 'News.    He states;  "The Progress Club of Vancou-  ver is doing good work for the province and the attention  of manufacturers is being attractod to  tho  west as novor before.    Big things  are on for Eraser Valley,   but the  real   center   of   attraction  at the  present time appears to  be Coquit-  lam.     Sir   Thomas   Shaughucdhy  says the C.P.B.. is going   to make  it a bigger city than Vancouver, lb  is an assured fact that some mighty  big manufacturing concerns will be  located there, ancl  if all   that are  talked  of   aro eventually  located  thoy will certainly niakcCoquitlam  a city of importance.     The re.il  estate, men who have largo holdings  are bound to profit immensely.    A  recent     distinguished    visitor   to  Coquitlam from Scotland said that  in his   opinion   the   Fraser  river  would in the not far distant future  rival the Clyde in .Scotland  in  the;  building of ships.    If ko this industry alone will bring cjuito  a  large  population   do   Coquitlam     It    is  difficult for any man to foretell the.  future of the Fraser Valley."

John Mason did not slam the gate  simply because lie knew that this manifestation of rage would surely delight  Rosalie. .Sue was, watching his departure from' the window, and he was an-  grily conscious , that she knew, he  would, as usual, return in a few days,  although she had said she hoped she  would be rid of him for uwhlle! She  was so young aud so beautiful-and so  provoking! ;  ' At the entrance to the little park,'aI-:  ready growing green In the April,sun,  he met her sister. He did not' know  Anno very well-he had been too busy  with Kosulje. He wished now that lie  had made friends with lier; her blue  eyes were so like aud still so ninllko  Rosalie's. Aiine sleppetl In front of  him and stopped him unceremoniously.  "Been trampled upon again!" she observed. "John Mason, for so clever a  man generally you're sometimes iin awful���������fool!" She submitted this thought,  fully, in a voice too gentle to be In-'  suiting.  "Then you and Rosalie are agreed,  and I suppose you are expert testimony. May I turn and walk with  you?" ,  She nodded nnd then asked a matter  of fact question, "How many times  has she refused you ?"  "I had not thought to keep, count  Rosalie just now iul'onjied me that this  was the last time.  I didn't know I Imd  been the same sort of���������fool so often.  But don't you think she ought to give  me credit for my persistence.  Not every man. proposes so''many times-to  the same girl."   ���������  Anne laughed dryly as he continued:  "I would have given up loin* ago it  I were not unexplaiuably sure that she  does���������care for me.   In fact,, she never  has said directly that she does uot. She  simply , says   she   won't   marry', me.  What's the matter with Me? Am 1 too  rich?   1 can give away the stuff if she  likes.   Am I too successful?   I might  lose a case to please her.   Should 1 be  as ugly as Satan?   Perhaps she would  like a  beauty  aud   the  beast  effect!  "What does she want?    I've said and  done everything under heaven, and she  walks on me���������she trails me!"  "Precisely! That's why 1 called you  ���������what I did. A girl likes to trail a  man, hut hates the man that will be  trailed. Not logical, is it? To use her  own words, you are always around,  underfoot You give her uo 'time to  want you or miss you or think about  you. She's too sure of you. She  knows just where you'll be. You never  let her want anything bad enough to  appreciate it when It comes. She has  always had her own way. She needs to  be a bit afraid of you. She needs to be  bullied."  He frowned. "I urn not a brute. That  Is not my way."  "No?. Well, what has your way accomplished?"  He tried to laugh. "Oh, I'll take your  advice. I'll do anything you say. It  can't be worse than It is now.;'  "Well, 1 hute the responsibility. If  you get her you'll tight. If you don't  you'll both be miserable anyhow. You  must get her-and then work out your  own salvation, lu the lirst place, you  must give her a shock. Write her a  note aud accept your dismissal. Tell  her you begin to see that she is right  and that you wish to be friendly with  her and the family. Then call sometimes���������on the father or on me. Don't  stay uway. Absences of that sort are  flattering. You must be quite unaffected by her presence."  ��������� "You know that is impossible. You  know how the sight of her"������������������  "You've got to do it! And you must  take another girl out occasionally. Being naturally modest, I dislike to suggest that you send me Sowers sometimes and come for a walk with me.  That will bring things home to her. A  girl hates to have an admirer transfer  himself bodily to any one, but especially to her sister."  When they had planned their campaign and he left Anne at the gate she  had him laughing. Rosalie saw them  and shrugged her shoulders. While  removing her hat In the ball Anne remarked to her sister:  "Well, dear, John tells me that you  have dismissed   him  for good.    Yon  know I never would hnve Interfered If  you had wanted him. but I am glad  you do not.   Now you may find time  for your music.    Your talent Is too  marked to be neglected.   It will be a  relief for you to have him out 'of. the  way awhile.  You're too young to leave  father and me, and, after all. I think  you're right about bis not being the  right man for you."  Rosalie shrugged her shoulders.  The next day Rosalie, without com  ment, handpd Anne this note:  Dear  Mlsa  Carleton-1   want  to  thank  you for your frankness or yesterday, and  I assure you that 1 shall not annoy you  again as 1 have in tha past   Can y������w tor-  glvo me for having troubled you so much  and so long?   STou are, probably right In  deciding that 1 could not make you happy, as I hoped to ba able to do.   May I  hope to coHtlnue my present friendly relations with you and the rest of the family*? If I may I will not again trespass on  your kindness.   It will be. es you said,  th* last time you shall have the pain ot  refusing.   Tours sincerely,  JOHN MASON  "W������U. I like a man to knew when  he's had enough," remarked Anna,  Again Rosalie shrugged her shoulders  and made a wry little face.  For a week Rosalie was blithe and  busy with her music. The second weal!  Anne observed that the gayety was a  bit forced and that during the third  she moped a little. John had somehow  kept the other men of her set away  from her, and flowers and drives and  theaters were less frequent She had  no time to miss him.  In the fourth week he called���������whila  she was out. Of course she could not  know that Anne had phoned him to  come. He was leaving just as Rosalia  entered and shook hands with her cordially. He did not look broken hearted, and he seemed to be of very good  terms with Annie, to whom next morn,  ing he sent some violets. Rosalie saw  him out walking with Mary Dye. Then  he took Anne driving. She began to  realize that Anne was very pretty ii  she was a year or two older than John.  Rosalie's irritation reached its climax  one morning at the breakfast table  when her younger brother Ted remarked in a teasing drawl:  "John seems to be taking his medicine like a man, Rosy! He's all right;  and I am glad Anne seems inclined to  keep him in the family. He probably  appreciates being treated like a human  being after the way you always walked on him. The fellows say he's the  best young lawyer in town. But'I  should think you'd hate to have him  take his punishment so cheerfully.  Rosy!"  By this time Rosalie had reached the  limit of endurance. She sprang up  and, before any ono could interfere,  had boxed Ted's ears soundly and fled  to her room. No one made comment  on the scene save that Mr. Carleton  amusedly met the laughter in Anne's  eyes and told Ted that he would have  no more of his teasing. Rosalie's capricious treatment of John had long  been disapproved of by her family,  and, while they were all sorry for her,  they thought it time she should come  to her senses.  Time had been slow and torturing to  John, ne wanted to tell Rosalie that  he loved her and her only. He wanted  to send her 'flowers, to give her every  desire of her heart, and he found it a  misery to see her or not to see her.  Meantime he was very attentive to  Anne, who was becoming vastly bored  with his raptures and sorrows and was  longing for him to win his Rosalie and  let her go back to her old peaceful |  ways.  At last one night Anne waked and  heard Rosalie sobbing to herself. In  the morning she pleaded headache and  stayed in her room till nearly evening.  Anne had a long conference by telephone with John and took pains to  have her father and Ted spend the  evening elsewhere.  After dinner she went to Rosalie's  room  and pleaded  being tired.    She  coaxed Rosalie to arrange her pretty  hair and don a pretty gown so she  could go down if any one should come.  While Rosalie was sulkily doing as her  sister wished Anne heard the bell and  slipped down to auswer it.   She cume  back saying it was some one for her  father and asked Rosalie if she would  mind going to the library and bringing  the book she had left on the table.        |  Rosalie,  In her trailing blue dress,  went downstairs aud through the hall  Into the library.   She had half crossed  the room before she saw John sitting  in a great chair in the dim firelight  She wanted to flee from him, but somehow her feet would not move, nor did  she find a word to say.   Then, to her  dismay, she knew that a slow tear was  falling down her cheek.    John came  quickly toward her.    It seemed very  comfortable to be leaning against him.  'After awhile he held her off and looked  at her.   She tried to smile.  "Well," he questioned, "how shall It  be? You know you said you hoped you  would never have to refuse me again.  I hops you will not Just for variety,  suppose you���������take me."  After the little minutes bad cunningly slipped away and it was time that  he should leave her Rosalie exclaimed  in dismay:  ' "Oh, Anne's book!   She will be waiting for it"  "I  hardly think so," John asserted  dryly.   "Your sister Anne is wise.   She  knew better than to expect you in a  moment when she sent you down to  me!"  "Sent me to you!" Rosalie echoed.  "Yes, my lady!   Do you imagine your  sister has been trailing me about for  her pleasure?   She is more glad to be  rid of me than���������ever you werel"  "Then���������it���������was not���������Anne���������ever?"  John   laughed   and   bade  her  good  night  "If you were not perfectly sure that  it was 'not���������Anne���������ever,' you would  never, never have asked me!" which  both of them knew to be true.  And Anne went to bed and slept the  sleep of one who has successfully performed her duty.

A "Remarkable Chimney  A-chimney two'miles . high with a  brook running' through is certainly  something of a'novelty. Such'a chimney exitts in connection with the  copper works at Cwmavou, near  Aberavon, in. Glamorganshire,  Wales. This is how it came to bo  buMt:  About sixty years ago ;the-copper  smoke from these works was the  plague of the neighboring countryside. It settled upon and destroyed  the grass for twenty miles round,  while the sulphur and arsenic in tlie  fumes affected the hoofs' of cattle,  causing gangrene. The company  tried all sorts of devices to remedy  the trouble, but in vain. ��������� Finally Mr.  Robert Breuton, who was later engineer of tlie Sind Railway in India,  solved the problem.  The copper works are at the foot  of a high, steep mountain. Mr.  Brenton constructed a flue or chimney running continuously from tlie  base to about one hundred feet above  the summit, following the natural  slope of the ground. The brick which  lined it and of which it was largely  constructed was burned close by. A  small spring, rushing out near the  mountain top, was turned Into the  chimney, and allowed to flow through  almost its entire length to condense  the smoke. Once a year it is swept  out, and about a ton of precipitated  copper obtained. Its top can be sees  for between fo*rty and fifty miles.

A funeral party at Roveredo was upset by tho Austrian tariff.   Two of the  chief mourners came from Italy, bringing a  wreath  to  which  silk  ribbon  bearing an inscription was attached.  At the Austrian frontier a duty of ������5  was demanded ou this.   Vehement protests elicited the explanation that although flowers pay no duty silk paya  a high one, and the, amount asked for  was assessed on the total weight of  the wreath.    After a prolonged discussion It was decided to discard the  ribbon.  "Then," said tho customs officer, "you  must go back to Italy, if the ribbon  la thrown away here you are still  liable for the duty." By tho time the  mourners had dropped the ribbon on  Italian soil their train had gone, and  they reached Roveredo three hours too  late for the funeral.  STARKEY & CO.  NELSON, B. C.

It is said  that the McLauren estate is behind  the proposed development and  operation of tho property.  It is known that F. W. Bewley  and C E. Morris, mining engineers  connected with San Poil Consolidated company, have been employed  by tho McLauren representatives  to go over the miue and mill of the  Mountain Lion with a view to ascertaining tho cost of making the  mill up-to-date for the treatment  of ore by the cyanide process, and  to estimate tho volume of milling  ore already blocked out. Their  report was completed and forward-  (1 to Ottawa this week.  Ore nt the Mountain Lion is not  of a particularly high grade, but  that the tonnago of good milling  oro thnt lias been blocked out is  sufliciontly largo to justify the remodelling of tho mill aud the refill inpt.ion of operations at the mine  is said to bo the embodiment of the  report sent in to the owners.���������Republic "News-Miner.  ooo ooo oo-ooo ooooooooooooooo  I   B.

Jones and party  of four minors, who under tho supervision of Mr. Jones, left Tuesday  to develop tho property of the Tas-  soo Copper Syndicate on the west  coast.  Equipment and supplies weighing about eight tons were taken to  tbe property, of which Mr. R. R.  Hedley, a Vancouver operator and  mining engineer is the head.  "Work will be pushed forward on  this promising property as rapidly  as possible, and in about a month's  time, as soon as plans and surveys  have been completed, an aerial  tramway will be built and bunkers  installed, facilitating oro shipment.  Queen Charlotte News.  Jas. Wright, managing director  of the G. T. B. C. Coal Co., Vancouver, arrived in town on Saturday night and the first of this week  arranged for several pack horses to  go out to the company's property  at twenty mile and pack five tons  of coal to the railway. Mr. Wright  stated that the samples which he  took down with him a couple of  months ago created a great deal of  interest and there waB a demand  made by some big capitalists for a  sample of several tons' to be tested  in the Nanaimo Gas and Coke Co'b  plant. The coal Mr. Wright is  now getting out will be sent to the  Nanaimo coke ovens. It is expected that the stuff will be ready  for shipment inside of a week.  Tho assays of the last samples were  very attractive and the directors of  the company aro all well satisfied.  ���������Hazelton Herald.  The ledge has been struck in the  Anfeas mine near Hope. Writing  about it  the   West-Yale Review  Hays:-���������  The vein was struck at a distance  of 385 foot from the portal and at  a depth of 450 feet from the surface..  The character of the ore is the  aamo as that formed on the surface  but the percentage of copper has  increased with the depth. It will  be remembered that the assays of  the outcrop showed a gold content  varying iu value from $23 to $30  to tho ton in average samples and  a vo.ry high percentage of arsenic.  It in obvious that tho copper valueR  will also..1)0 high.  The strike is of the highest 'importance to Hope. It will meau at  onoo a producing and shipping  mine, employing a large force of  men, whose homes will bo In Hope,  and whose supplies will bo idrawn  stantial profit to the men who had  faith iu the property and spent  time and money on its development during the last two years.  But it means?far more than that.  It has only needed the success of  one property in the Hope district  to convince a public, pardonably  skeptical since the Steamboat  Mountain fraud, that there is pay  ore in the Hope Mountains. There  are splendid prospects at 23-Mile  on the Skagit River and on the  creeks that feed the Coquihalla.  In both fields prospectors have  been at work for several years and  now have showings that will interest any intelligent mining man.  They will now find people willing  to look and listen.  Tho programme of the Aufeas  Company includes tho immediate  installation of au aerial tram and  beginning of shipments to tlio Ta-  conia smelter.  The lower terminal will bo near  tho site of the powder magazine on  the Provincial Highway. From  there it will be hauled, possibly by  motor trucks, to a siding near tho  mouth of Silver Creek. On his last  visit here T. C, Holt, manager of  the C.N.R. company assured members of the Aufeas company that as  soon as they were ready they would  be given every facility required.  As soon as ore shipment is begun  the management will have a very  interesting problem to solve. Tho  arsenical content is 30 per cent or  over, much higher than the ore of  the Nickle Plate which in other respects, it closely resembles. The  recovery of values in arsenic has  hardly been seriously attempted  before in the west.  Greenwood Fair  Big Clean up.  From reliable sources the Prospector has received information  that the clean-up of the Coronation  stamp mill for the first fourteen  days of operation, is valued at $22-  000. This result is considered  highly satisfactory by those interested in the property, and is regarded as justification of the confidence which has been placed in  the group and the expenditure of  money upon its development.  Daring the fourteen days 1GS0  tons of ore was treated, with 87  per cent recovery of assay values.  The mill was running 24 hours a  day. The value of returns average  $13.10 per ton. All of the rock  treated was taken direct from the  mine. Upon the dump many hundreds of tonB of ore are ready for  crushing. A second clean-up is  to be taken during the next few  days.���������Lillooet Prospector.  The White Heather  Jos. Trethewey, the Cobalt millionaire, paid a visit to the White  Heather group on ' Hudson Bay  mountain last Saturday getting  back to New Hazelton Monday.  He was accompanied by Frank  Martin, his partner in the bond,  and together they examined the  White Heather and several other  properties very carefully.  To the Omineca Herald he said  that he was very much pleased  with their property. On the silver  property there is not a great deal  of work done but the stuff that is  exposed ib very rich and would  uot take many carloads to make  quite a stake.  The native silver is not the only  values on the group.
