But never perhaps has fortune  smiled in such strange gnise as  upou Edward Reed, a prospector  owning what are believed to be  valuable copper properties located  on Prince William Sound.  Confronted with the necessity of  doing assessment work, Keed has  been hampered for ready cash, and  his efforts to obtain oven the few  hundreds of dollars necessary to  satisfy his immediate demands  even have been unsuccessful. Reed  concluded that unless something  out of the ordinary happened he  was in bad straits, and was strolling along the shore near his claim  in search of inspiration when he  chanced upon his Godsend.  Swashing against the beach Reed  observed the body of a sea animal  not long dead. Reeci was dragging  his find upon tbe beach for further  ins-pection although hit*, belief was  that it was a land 'otter, when  along came au Indian, who upon  catching sight of Reed's' burden  began ejaculating his surprise and  crying, "heap skookum sea otter."  It was not until then that Reed  realized the extent of his fortune.  He has disposed of the pelt for  8900, more than enough to defray  the expenses of the necessary  assessment work,  Ho that liveth on hope will die  fasting.

If seeking virtue, just take a walk  ���������you'll iind a sample on every  block. I say the world is a bally-  joint ! I cry to the croaking ones,  aroint! Each day that I live I am  more impressed by the goodness  housed in the human breast.  There are'kindly hearts, there are  helping hands, an thick as the  blooming seashore sands! There  There are open doors for the sonl  astray, and cheerful pilgrims to  point the way. The world no  doubt is a dismal place, if you are  seeking the mean and base; but it's  all O.

Describing the Rockies of Britinh  Columbia ������s the future playground  of the world, Dr. Thomas G. Long-  staff,   the famous Alpine climber,  aud fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, has just described in  London the delights   of   his   experiences during his recent visit to  to this province.

"Switzerland,"  said  Dr. Longstaff, "may be called the  playground of Europe,   hut I say  that the RockioB will he the playground of the world."     Compared  with India and other parta of the  world where he had  traveled,   not  only   did   British Columbia offer  greater facilities for the sportsmau  but it was- free from   malaria aud  other diseases common to tropical  countries.  When British Columbia  and what she offered became better  knowu to sportsmen there would bo  a   rush   iu   this  direction.    The  Htatement that tbif* province was  shot out was utterly false.    'There  was plouty of 'shooting, aud, with  vast sections of the Rockies still  unexplored, those who wauted id  could   secure   the   best  possible  sport.    He had himself se-r-ti tsighfi  bears in teu days,  besides numerous mountain goats.  -.>���������  .y^'h.

I-ie  hud been mistaken for a senator who  bud six autos and speculated in Wall  .street, and he hated to let himself  dowu. As a result he took- the hat.  When he reached home and met Mrs.  Bowser's accusing eye he said:  "Friend of mine introduced me to  the hatter, and I got this for $4. 1'  think it's a bargain."  "But did you go and pay $4 for a hat  ���������when you kuew I hadu't a glove to  put on my baud!" she exclaimed.  "I was rather dragged into it, but it  looks like a pretty good hat.

He  felt a warm glow'when he saw the  street car conductor looking at it. He  gave it a rakish slant on bis head and  felt to pity other men.

It was only ufter the  meal had been finished and tbey had  come up from the dining room to sit  on tbe froDt steps that she glanced at  tbe hall tree and exclaimed:  "Why, Mr. Bowser, have you been  trading hats?"  "What do you mean?"  "Why, this isn't your four dollar hat.  This one never cost the half of that."  "By the jumping jingo!" he shouted  ds he grabbed for tbe hat  "It Isn't yours?"

After he had  spent ten minutes In giving details tho  reply was:  "Very sorry, but we are not the  straw hat police. Inquire uext door."  Then lie rushed Out to the policeman  on the corner.

All the rest of the evening Mrs. Bowser tried to quiet aud console him. but  wiih poor success. Mr. Bowser walked  the floor and abused the professor.

ORIGIN OF DOG DAY?,  Tou may  ou to the  If you did  ha!  They Have   No   Relation   to' Canines  or Their Diseases.  Thc "dog days" are the hottest of  the year, but they have nothing to  do with dogs or with any of their diseases or sufferings. The "clog days"  are so named because in the latitude  of tlie Mediterranean this, period coincided with that in whicli the dog  star rose at tlie same time as tlie sun  und therefore added its heat to that  of our already hot luminary. The  dog star. Sirius, t������ the brightest and  in appearance the largest of the fixed stars. It is called tho dog. star  because it is seen in the constellation calles-] Cnnis Major. According  to Ptolemy, this star used to have a  fiery color, rockier than tho planet  Mars, but is now altogether white  and has certainly been white for  many  centuries.  The heat of tho "dog days" really  comes from the gradual heating of  tlie earth's surface, which gathers  lioat nnrl becomes warmer from  groundhog time, Fob. 2, until about  Vug. 5, when it begins gradually to  lose its* heat, until groundhog time.  Theoretically Dec. 21 ought to be  tlie coldest of the year, because thnt  is the slim-test day of the year and  therefore receives the least heat and  light from the sun. But experience  shows that the coldest days are generally in February. In the same way  .June 21 oug'fit to be the hottest day  of the season, because it is the longest and hence receives the most light  and heat. But the earth continues  to accumulate more heat than it  radiates until after the climax of the  "clog day" season, when the cooling  effect begins to predominate over the  sun's heating effect, and so tlie net  result is the cooler weather, which  reachc-* its climax at groundhog lime  Why He Couldn't Pay.

The third week alio felt he had had  every chance, and she was determined to get at least some of her  money. , She stated her request.

One of the natural wonders of the  world is the great pitch lake of Trinidad, the most southerly island of the  Britisji West Indies.. Paying better  than any gold or diamond mine, the  lake is locally known as "The IJlack  Diamond." An American syndicate  handles .most of this natural asphalt  uncles' a concession from the Government, and from one comer of the  lake obtains 800 tons every day. The  material is shipped in enormous  (j-iiuritities to America, England und  all parts of tiie world, where it is in  '.leinand for slroe.t making.  Close to the village of La Brea, the,  lake, is inspected every year by numerous visitors to the island, for it  is a curiosity not to be seen elsewhere. Tlie lake lies 138 feet above  thc sea and is three miles in circumference. -How" deep it is nobody  knows, for though many attempts  have been made to fathom it, all  have failed. To all appearances this ���������  is.indeed  tho  "bottomless  pit."  Scientists' describe the pitch substance'as "bituminous matter , floating on the surface of fresh water."  For three feet down the pitch ��������� is  solid enough to bear the weight of  men and allow of their, digging it up  in great slabs with pickaxe and  spade: Under that hard substance is  liquid pitch cast up by subterranean  fires, and under that again is the  fresh  water of the lake.  Though the syndicate secures several freight train loads, every day,  next morning when the army of  negroes return to their work the surface is level and hard as before. An  inexhaustible supply is therefore at  hand without any preliminary expense. Alongside the lake is a light  railway with iron cars that are run  down to the sea���������only a short ��������� dis-  tancc-r-and there the-asphalt is transferred to ships. From this remarkable industry the - Government of the  island receives a substantial part of  its revenue every year. Columbus  discovered Trinidad in 1493.

Fight of a Tiger and a Crocodile With  Native For a Spectator.  It is said that the most common  form of duel between animals is that  afforded by the instance of two stags,  which, while fighting, interlocked  their antlers so tenaciously that they  could not separate them, and so  starved to death.  One'of the most interesting of animal duels was that told ofta swan  and a pike, which occurred in a body  of water situated on an English  estate. A laboring man, who passed  this pond every morning on his way  'to work, observed a swan with its  head under water. The next morning the bird was in exactly the same  plape and position. Still, that was  not remarkable, however, ��������� when he  saw that the swan was in precisely  the same position, he called the attention of the keeper to it. The  keeper found that ��������� the swan's head  had, been swallowed by a large pike.  Both were dead. .  - In India ,a native went to bnthe  in a ravine. He was in tho water  up to his neck when a tiger on the  hill above gave a leap toward its  prey. But the tiger had mot calculated that, since his victim was much  lower than himself, ,a leap of the,  right strength for a horizontal range  would carry him far beyond his  mark; consequently he fell some ten  feet on the other side.  Now it happened that a hungry  crocodile was at the same timo drawing a bee line under water toward  the native. When the crocodile had  almost come upon his prey, he heard  a splash just in front, and made a  dash bringing his enormous jaws  down  on  the tiger's  paw.  The bather nearly fainted with  fright when he saw the tiger fall into  the water, and for a few moments he  could not understand why the creature did not devour him. Why did  he pi-rsist in keeping one of his paws  under water beating savagely with  ,the other. And the water turned  "red!  Then  all   at  once  the  assaults   of  tho  tiger became more   furious  and  his growls developed into roars. The  huge tail of a crocodile reared up out  of the  water. - The obvious intention ;  was   to   pull   the   tiger   under  water ���������  and drown him and the tiger under- j  standing this purpose, tried  to frus- ���������  trate it by  beating the snout of tho  crocodile  with   his  other  paw.    But  the snout was too far down, and   he  left much of his force on the surface  of the  water.    His struggles became  more and more feeble and at length  he   disappeared   altogether,   only   a  cluster of bubbles remaining to show  where he had been.  His fight, however, had been a  game one, not entirely in vain; for,  when the bodies of the two beasts  finally-came to the surface, it was  seen that the tiger had literally torn  away the whole frunt of the crocodile's face and had blinded it so that  its victory was a1 useless one.  Story of a Royal Residence.  It is not generally known that Kin;;  George almost purchased a residence  in the North'of Ireland a few years  ago, and the true story why he did  not do .so has never previously been  told. The residence in question wa-i  one that particularly appealed to him.  The estate was extensive and possess  ed excellent fishing and shoo ting  rights, while the scenery in the neighborhood was among the most picturesque it would be possible to imagine  Both the Prince and Princess of  Wales (as their Majesties then were)  fell in love with the place, and negotiations for its purchase were well advanced when the matter came to the  ears of the leaders of the Irish paity.  A protest was at once entered with  the Prime Minister of tho day, and a  significant hint was given that if the  Heir-Apparent took up his residence in  Ireland matters would be made pretty  awkward for the Government in tha  House of Commons. The Premier  was consequently in something of a  dilemma, and sought an audience of  the" late King.  King Edward listened to what his  chief political adviser had to say, and  then consulted the Prince of Wales,  and pointed out the objections that  had been raised, and the awkward  position in which the viceroy wouiJ  be placed every time the prince or  princess appeared in Dublin. King  Edward further added reasons of his  own for opposing this plan chiefly on  account of the distance from London  that his heir would be when residing  upon his Irish estate. His present  Majesty at length agreed to forego his  project, and to accept Frogmore as  his country home.  Mr. Arthur Fairbank, of 647 Lansdo*wne  Ave., Toronto, ia the speaker, and he eays:  "A bad eruption on my forehead quiokly  spread until it covered my scalp *with toul and  painful sores. I went to a doctor, who treated  me for it. Still the sores spread until almost  the whole of my head was affected. As the doctor's  treatment did me very little good, I left it off and tried  various home remedies. I also tried taking various  __^ aperient medicines to try to cure the outbreak through  ^ the blood. Still it was in vain 1  " Then I tried blood mixtures, but not one of them did me  any good. I was by that time in a shocking condition, and as  a last resource I went to a skin specialist. He treated me for ���������  a period and it cost me over $50, but the sores got no better.  They would^tch and burn at times until I was nearly mad. I  must have spent over $100 on useless remedies, when one  day a friend asjeed me why I had not tried Zam-Buk, and gave  me a little. That litt'e bit of Zam-Buk did mo more good than all tho long  treatment I had had from doctors and spa ialists. I immediately rent for a  supply of the balm and started right in to give it a proper trial. Very noon I began  to iee and feel a great difference in the sores, ana I know that at lost I had got  something that would cure me. Zam-Buk cured me at a trifling coat.

"CATCH MY PAL" '"  Temperance   Movement   Has   Spread  With Great Rapidity  The history of the social reform  h*s rarely presented so remarkable a  development as the movement known  as the Irish Protestant Total Abstinence Union, or, as it is better known,  the "Catch My Pal"_. Society, whose  first anniversary was celebrated in Armagh recently with several demonstrations. Started on July 16 of last year,  the union has now a membership of  120,000, and before the end of the present year has come it is expected that  the flag of total abstinence will be  firmly planted in each of the chief  towns and cities of the United Kingdom. The origin of the organization ii  a singularly interesting example of  how seemingly trivial incidents change  the current of men's lives and alter  the social customs of the people  On July 13, 1909, Rev. It: J. Patterson, LL.B., a Presbyterian clergyman  in the city of Armagh, happened to  pass a lamp post around which stood  six men, some of whom were recovering from the effects of a drinking bout  the day before. One of the men suggested half in jest to Mr. Patterson  that he should try and inJuc< his com  panions to take the pledge. A conversation followed, and tiie six men  promised to go to the manse three  days later as the curfew rang and  take the pledge. The men carried out  their undertaking, signed the pledge,  and the union became an accomplished fact.  The idea of the society was, admirable illustrated by Mr. Patterson,  who said: "The men who drink to excess are the men who make the drink  problem, Let those who make the  problem' solve it. Let the drinker.-  take the pledge, and go and get their  'pals' to do the same. Let the responsibility of the reform of the drinkers be largely left on the shoulders of  the drinkers themselves. Let thtf  drinkers be inspired with the idea that  even they are their brother's keepers."  No fiery cro.-s of old traveled with  greater celerity than did the idea  throughout Ulster. It seemed as 'f  the people had been hoping against  hope for the opportunity to help  themselves without the aid of legis  lation. From end to end of the province the union spread with amazing  rapidity sweeping into its net all sorts  and conditions of men and women, the  employer of labor and the.worker, tlie  erstwhile temperance mah who no.v  took the pledge as an example to hi=  fellows, the moderate di inker, the  secret drunkard, and the police court  habitue. The phrase "hopless drunkard'' holds no place in the lexicon of  tliu union, as it is maintained, ani  the history of the movement seem-*  to justify the contention, that there is  none so degraded but has at least a  spark of good in him.  From Ulster the organization spreal  to other parts of Ireland, and now  branches are to be found south, east,  and west. Then the Channel was*  crossed, and several of the' large industrial centres iu Scotland came-un  der the influence of the movement,  brasiches being formed in Glasgow  Edinburgh, Abeidcen, Paisley, and  other towns.  A most gratifying feature of the  work is that the union has united  all the Protestant churclies of Ireland  under its banner, and, to quote one  instance, the unique spectacle was  witnessed in a Presbyterian church in  Londonderry of the bishop of the d;o-  cese, Dr. Chadwick, occupying the  pulpit at a demonstration of members. The pledge of the union is a-*  follows: "For God and "home and na  tive land. 1 promise, by God's help,  to abstain from all intoxicating drinks  or beverages, and to do all that in me  lies to promote the cause of total abstinence by getting others to join the  union."

The Pr-bice's Investiture.  Those who ar������ behind the' scenes  are immensely amused at the tiered  tight that is going on at the prese:;*.  time between Cardiff, Carnarvon, an I  other Welsh towns, as to which shall  have the honor of witnessing the formal investiture of tlie Prince of Wales  with his time-honored title. As a matter of fact, the King and Queen have  definitely made up their minds that  there shall be' no formal investiture  of their eldest son at all, and that he  shall not take any part in public  functions of any description until he  is eighteen. At the same time His  Majesty is very keenly interested in  the discussion that is now taking  place for the valuable sidelights that  it sheds on Welsh history, and in following the claims of the rival towns  most carefully. He is extremely cautious, however, not to express any  opinion in favor of any one place,  though he has been directly invited to  do so by those who are at liberty to  approach him upon the terms of intimacy.  And Wrong at ThatI  Those almost perfect "doubles"  George du Maurier and Sir Lawrence  Alnia-Tadeuia, were nearly indistinguishable. The story goes that a woman sitting beside Du Maurier at  dinner started conversation by pooh-  poohing all idea of a resemblance.  "You know, Mr. Alma-Tadema, I  think it's absurd to say that you aud  Mr. Du Maurier are so awfully alike.  There's really no resemblance at all.  Don't you agree with me?"  "Quite," was the polite answer;  "but, you see, I happen to be Mr. Du  Maurier!"

It is true,. that  there are not many positions of  that kind, hut in a monetary sense  thoy are very, desirable. It is  stated that Mr. Hodges, who recently went to Peru, receives a salary of $,00,000 a year with' trim  mi'ngs. Here in Greenwood, ,we  uiid-rtand that Mr. McAllister's  salary has gradually risen' from  Sfi.OOO a year until he now receives  SI,200 a month for guiding locallv  the affairs of the B. C. Copper Co.  This is a huge salary in Canada,  and indicates that Mac must have  a large area of gray matter in order  to command it, even if his company  does procrastinate in the diffusion  of dividends. People who hold  stock iii tho B. C. Copper Co. are  impatient for dividends, and mentally chafe at their nou-appearance.  They forget that all large bodies  move slowly, and that Rome was  not erected 'between two moons.  Bide a wee! The B. C.

Orippen had a wife who  constantly nagged him with her insane jealousy and suspicions, added to her slatternly habits, and  love of boasting how other men  loved her. Hell bath no demon  worse than a woman of that kind.  Evidently, she drove Crippen in-,  sane from her manners of speech  and action, judging from the way  lie killed her and disposed of the  remains. No sane man would  have committed such a diabolicsil  deed for which Crippen passed in  his checks by the enforced rope  route. His terrible fate should be  a warning to all -men and women  who do not live together like turtle  doves.

Tt  tells how a gambler cashed  in after the flush days of  Sandon ; how it rained in  New  Denver   long   after  Noah was dead ;   how a  parson  took  a   drink   at  Dear Lake in early days ;  how jii.**tice was dealt in  Kaslo   in   '.).'];   how  the  saloon man outprayed the  women in Kala 111.1 zoo, and  graphically    depicts   the  roarnings    of    a   western  editor among the tender-  feet in, thc cent belt.    It  contains the early history  of Nelson and a romance  of the Silver King mine."  In   it are   printed  three  western  poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention.    Send for  one before it is too late. '  The   price   is   20   cents,  postpaid to any part of the  world.   Address  all   letters to  To, Lowery  GREENWOOD, B. O. "  For stating in  his paper that  South  Fort George is a   wildcat  townsite,   promoted  by   tinborns,  friskers,   boot-leggers   and    four-  flushers,  John  P. McConnell  has  been committed for trial  in  Vancouver upon a charge of criminal  libel.    Such is strenuous journalism.    It is  full  of thorns, writs,  indignation,   with   an   occasional  shot-gun" thrown in.    Whether in  the right or the wrong, the bold  editor who steps  outside  the soft  trail    of.   meek    and    submissive  journalism   must bo   prepared   to  receive a shower of blows from the  enemy.    The world loves a brave  man  when   he   does   not   hit   its  pocket.    We know nothing about  tlie case in point, but we do know  that trying to save the sucker from  losing his money  is,  as a  rule, a  thankless position.     The fool does  not like to be dragged away from a  shell game.    We once exposed a  townsite scheme and   nearly   got  lynched by the dupes.    Then, over  in   frenzied   Fernie,   during   our  short but fitful existence in the city  of coke, we were f-landored by hundreds   because   we   attomptvd   to  break the cinch that the O. N. P.  Goal Co. held over its meek slaves  in that burg.    Our work in Fernie  eventually brought forth  changes  that would save the people of that  city-S100,000, and yet we did  not  even get thanks, let alone a dollar.  Such is the gratitude of the multitude.    Then,   again,   during   the  stock craze of '07, wo exposed the  Ibex and  other wild-cat   mining  stock schemes;" and for our pains  we received an outburst of abuse,  alike from sucker and shark.    So,  dear John Patrick, if you win, you  lose,   except   in    one   particular.

Business men  haye very   gdod  reason  to   resent   the   slanderous  statements  made  with  respect; to  them by the Toronto Globe.    That  organ maintains that the rascality  at Ottawa is practiced also in  the  great business enterprises.   It says:  "Thero is no railway, no  banking  corporation, no private enterprize  of any kind, conducted on a  scale  at all similar to that of the Government's business, but would, were  the searchlight  turned  on,   show  wrongdoing and petty graft quite  as great as could possibly be shown  in    Governmental   departments."  A more injurious assault upon the  great corporations, the banks, the  railways, the loan  companies,  the  insurance companies,* and  all  the  officers of these  institutions could  not be iinagiued.    The thing/is all  the more to be condemned, because  it is an assault upon business rec  titude in defence of Ottawa graft.  P. B&RNS & G<  Dealers in Fresh and Salt Meats, Fish,  and Poultry.
