A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become, deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like, to  commune with your collateral.  . At tin) present moment, faraway  fields are yellow, to the harvest  hand.    Tiik Jiend is still at largo who  does nob add exchange to outside  cheques.    Is Kelowna the other clay there  was a drummer Helling peaches  from California.  Ju.������t 19 years ago last Sunday  Kaslo had the greatast sensation  that ever occurred in that city.  Tun Bulgarians are clamoring  for war. They should get cheap  excursion rates to tho Donnybrook  Fair.    TnE real estate sharks of- Vancouver have done much to give  that city a black eye with fair and  honest people.  Thr people in Canada have acquired a mania for taking chances  much to the advantage of the real  estate peddlers.  always attracted the   morally   and  mentally   weak,   by   Hying   (lags,  beating drums, and making a noise  with tho name   of   Jesus.    Booth  became a very rich man,   and   his  movement   for   saving   souls   has  furnished employment   to   a   vast  number of uniformed   cadgers who  are too lazy to work.    The Salvation Army has collected an immense  amount of 11101103*   -11   ���������>ne   P^, a  small   percentage    of   which   has  been used to help tho  real   needy  It seems to us   that   it   still takes  about three dollars to send a dime  to a heathen.    In the   busiuess  of  saving souls the rake-off to middle  men and heaven brokers is so great  that frequently there is   little   loft  for poor sinners except   a string of  long and solemn prayers.  THE MAK 1YH0 HEAT MG 151.-*  Just now the west is largely populated by fools aud real estate peddlers. One gets the experience,  and thc other, the money.  Not long agoaPboenix man was  taken to a lunatic .asylum. In his  pocket he had an agreement for a  distant piece of real estate made  out by the agent with an ordinary  lead pencil.  t  At the Stampede in Calgary  next week Teddy Roosevelt will be  present. He is not likely to pick  up any votes in that great' cow  camp; hut he ma}* get a few points  on tho best way to ride a bucking  broncho.  It is a useless expenditure for  the government to send a commissioner to examine conditions among  the Doukhobors. Tho police are  still intelligent enough, to make  those simple people obey tho laws  of the country.  Ovkii in Nelson just now the  society butterflies are taking lessons  in deportment, and learning how  to say duke with the proper accent.  Even with all their practice some  of them Connaught yet say it with  tho correct intonation.  By going to English schools the  Doukhobor children are gradually  being weaned from the ways of  their parents. The Douks own  nothing personally, but put everything into the society. Ono little  Douk boy said in Grand Forks the  other day, "Me fachier dam. fool,  ho got nottings, mo got 20 cents."  Tin* death of General Booth removes a groat social reformer from  this earth. Ho was the head of a  vast cadging organization, that has  The building of so many   battle  ships in Germany   is   a menace to  tho United States, rather   than   to  England.    The purpose of tho German navy, R. J. C.   Stead says is  to sweep the Monroe doctrine from  the coasts   of America,    and   the  nation against which Germany in.  tends measuring   her   strength   is  tho United States.    Germany by a  system of protection *and bonuses,  has built up   immense    producing  industries, and must have markets.  It isn't a matter of greed with Germany; it's a matter of   bread   and  bologna.    It isn't glory she   wants  but a chance to sell her goods. She  has seen tho British Empire   grow  until the map of the  whole   world  is splashed with red; she   has seen  Africa and Asia and America being  steadily absorbed  by   other   great  great powers while she is left   lean  and hungry.    There remains  only  one great wealthy continent to   divide, and Germany-is   determined  that, be the cost what it may,   she  is going to have her share   of 'that  continent.    That country  is South  America, and the only  thing   that  stands between Germany   and her  ambition is the Monroe doctrine of  the United States.    It is   to   challenge that doctrine she is building  her battleships.    But why the German hatred against   England���������tlie  only country in the world that admits German goods without tax or  tariff? It is because England stands  between Germany and her ambition  England has all the   territory   she  wants and    Germany   thinks she  might quietly keep out of a matter  that doesn't concern her.    If Gi r-  many could be assured ofEnglands  neutrality sho would probably challenge the United States next week.  But sho remembers   the   Spanish-  American war, wheu the European  powers agreed that the   time   bad  corao to bring the United States to  its knees.    But Britain stopped it.  Britain said that sho   would   not,  and   others   must   not   interfere.  And they didn't, but Germany has  not forgotten.    She is afraid   that  England is still as sentimental   as  ever.    And she is building a powerful navy, not, probably,   in   the  hope of some clay   whipping   England, but rather   to   make   it  too  dangerous for England to interforo  when the time comes to compel the  United States cither to fight for the  Monroe doctrine or abaudou it.  Liko a forest fire, the nows swept  tho r:imp. Big Bon, the* mighty, champion sawyer of the world, hud been  done up, beaten to n lay-down,  whipped, humbled ��������� and by an. Indian. Wonders would never cotse.  Tho loggors swore when they heard  the news, but there was one satis-  faction baok of It all. There would  bo a fight .worth going miles to see.  And that night, In camp, the gauntlet was hurled. Big Bou, striilin*-; upon  his silent conquoror, knotted his hugo  fists and  glowored down  upon  him.  "You " ho said wickedly. "I'll make  your head break your buck." Tho Indian starod back stolidly.  "Mobbyso." ,  "When will,you fight?"  "Sunday good 'miff day fov me."  Tho whito man turned away with a  growl. This was Friday night, and the  time mentioned was not unreasonably  distant. He rolled himself in his blan-  kots, grumbling liko an angry boar;  but tho Indian, slipping iiuietly from  the room, stood long in tlio biting air  without, his face again lurnnd toward  the North. And as ho looked and  listened thero camo through tho starlight night a long, faint, quavering  howl, and at its first, note ho started  as though stung. "With a quick leap,  he reached the bunk house, and,  snatching his snowshoos from tho peg  where thoy hung against tho logs,  thrust his feet Into tho "straps, and  went slipping away among tho dark  woods, along his almost obliterated  trail of throe days before.  Kenny, a hostler, coming from tho  stable, saw him as ho vanished in tho  forost, and hurried with tho nows to  the long building.  "Tho Injun has "puckachood," skip-  pod out, dead scart to fight," he said  disgustedly. And Big lion, hearing  thc words, sat up in his bunk, and  roared with disappointment and rage.  Down tho stoop hillside that led to  tho lake, tho runaway shuffled ancl  slid ,tho razor-edged air of tho night  cutting keenly through riannols and  deerskin. At the edge of the frozen  surface he stopped and swept it with  his black eyes, but it lay like a spot-  loss sheet, and ho hurried on. Ahead  of him was a low peninsula of tangled,  snow-burled brush heaps, and as ho  rounded its point he gave a guttural  cry, for a quarter of a mile ahead  of him a black mass lay upon the  snow, while slinking upon it from tho  shadow of the near-by forest was the  gaunt form of ono of thc great cray  runners of tho North woods.  "Puckacheo!" cried tho man, from  a distance of four yards. Tho wolf's  lip curled. -v  "Oct out," repeated the Indian, more  harshly, his knife suddenly gloaming  in the moonlight. Slowly, ominously,  tho brute got upon all fours: and. with  ears flattened and logs hold stiffly,  paced around tho man nt a distance  of six foot. Tho latter, seeing his  groat size, his gauntnr--.s, a-ul tho  famine in his ovos, crouched and  pivoted in his tracks, with his Made  held low. Th'vo times tho beast sr.ade  the-circle con-nleto, and three times  tho man turned round ancl round  about, aro! nc-vor for an instant did  the rod eyes of thc o:if or lilac*, c-yos  of thc other fail to moot, point to  point.   Then tho Indian rushed.    ���������  With a catlike leap, a snarl, and a  snap of his tooth, the wolf was far to  one side, while thc assailant, tripping  unluckily, fell floundering through the  crust, from the violence of the wasted  knife sweep. And, beforo ho could  clear the smother from his eyes, the  stillettolike tooth ofthe starving one  had sunk Into his right wrist, and at  the first crunch of the iron jaws.the  knife fell from tho helpless hand. But  the man, twisting like a worm, but led  the sinewy fingers of his free hand in  the shaggy throat above hi "n, and  floundered to his knees.  Not many men have strangled a  timber wolf that stood three feot high  at the shoulder with their naked  hand; but, for that matter, only one  man ever bore the brunt of Big Ben's  giant strength, and came off victorious. The Indian killed his enemy  with the strength that the protecting  spirit of lovers gave him; choked him  until the slathering jaws fell apart,  and the glowing eyes grew dull as  dead ashes. Then, bleeding and dizzy,  he arose.  "Live," ho whispered, as he painfully swung tho motionless fo *m of  the woman across his broad shoulders.  "Live, and I will always work and  hunt for you. * And may Mo-no-ko  lend me his strength once mure, for  tho trail ls long, and my strength runB  away like the waters of a river."  Bent nearly double beneath his burden, he shambled across tho bosom of  tho lake, floundered up thc ridge, reeled along tho summit, ancl foil prostrate upon tho floor of the bunk  house.  Slowly the sleep-benumbed camp  aroused itself, and stared through  heavy eyelids at tho senseless woman  and gasping man, with the red- Ice  thick upon his. sleeve. Then, one by  one, they crept from their bunks and  bent over tho motionless pair. ' 'ttle  was said, but muscle-knotted arms  laid thorn tenderly in a bunk, and  rough hands chafed the icy wrists ofthe girl until she sat up, gazed won-  derlngly about; and then, with a cry,  threw herself'upon tho still heavily  breathing form by her side.  "It is' the wish of Mo-no-ko that we  part no more," said he, as his hand  closod over hers. "Your tongue was  long, and my patience short, jvt you  are my squaw, and our trails should  run Bide by side. One tepee Is enough  for both of us, ancl tho wolfskin shall  cover us when we aro old."  Big Ben slowly got upon his feet,  and glared at his companions. "That  Injun is the best man in tho woods,  and I want to hear somo ono say  difforent," ho said threateningly. "He's  the one man that's got mc boat, and  we two will saw those others out of  their hides yet Shako hands, part-  nor."   A Sign In Gray's Inn Ur-niL.

The clerks and officials in one of  tho smaller bureuus at Washington  would, about now, seem to a casual  visitor, to be afflicted with a chronic  grin. Even tho somewhat sedate Chief  sometimes breaks Into a solemn  chuckle'. Tho joke was rather on  them, so they tried to keep it quiet,"  but It leaked out, of course. Briefly,  It'was nothing less than a grand, red  paint whirl by the most circumspect  clerk on Uncle Sam's payroll that  caused that yrin.  "Uncle Charlie," as he ls called by  everyone'from the Chief to the messenger, Is a meek, patient little man,  weighing about one hundred and five,  with mutton-chop whiskers, who has  struggled along for fifteen years on a  salary of $1,200. Twelve hundred dollars does not mean affluence down  there when one has a family of five  girls, and Uncle Charlie has always  been soedy.  One by one the girls wore married,  however, and, it camo about that with  the June roses the last of Uncle  Charlie's responsibilities as to hia  family vanished. For several days  aftor this event he was observed-to  wear a preoccupied look. Slowly his  air of abstraction gave way to one  of determination, and one sweltering  afternoon, suddenly laying down hie  pen, he announced to the man at the  next desk that he proposed to have a  whirl.  Tho news ran like wildfire through  tho bureau, and presently employees  began to pauso casually beside Undo  Charlie's desk.  "Say," thp offico sport whispored.  "You take my tip. Drink about an  ounce of olive oil before you start in.  You will last twice as long." He  winked and went on.  "I wonder' what that young man  really meant?" Undo Charlie pondered.  "I hear that you are going to give  yourself a little recreation, Uncle  Charlie," the Disbursing Clerk said,  and gave him a playful dig in the  ribs. "Of course you know that it is  not exactly regular, but if you would  liko to have a little advance, why, er,  I guess we could fix it up between  us."  "That's very kind of you, sir,. but  I really don't think I shall need any  advance," Undo Charlie said, sorely  perplexed.  "Perhaps you'd better leave the  number of days blank on your application for leave, Uncle Charlie,"  the Chlof advised, meeting him in the  corridor. "But then," he added with  sudden ' indulgence, "If you should  happen to overBtay the time coming to  you, why, er, we'll just consider that  you are sick and charge it up to sick  leave."  That was on Tuesday. On Thursday  Uncle Charlie's rusty alpaca coat was  hanging on its usual hook and Uncle  Charlie was at his old desk when the  rest of tho clerks came racing In at.  one minute to nine. Uncle Charlie  was chipper and smiling, though his  nose was curiously peeled. The office  sport dropped his hat with its fancy  band in his astonishment, and walked  Tound and round Uncle Charlie, eyeing  him from head to foot.  "Nary headache, as I live!" he  finally gasped. "Say, Uncle Charlie,  put me wise to that dope, will you?  You look as fresh as a daisy!"      '  It was no use trying to disguise  their curiosity, and presently half the  office force, including the Chief, had  gathered about Uncle Charlie's desk.  "Now, look here, Uncle Charlie,"  the Chief said; "we just want to know  what you did, anyway. I guess we  sort of���������well, misunderstood your intentions."  "Well, It wasn't such an awful  whirl, maybe, for one or you boys,  but it was a right smart one for me,"  Uncle Charlie told them, as they  pressed eagerly forward. "You see,  for quite a long while I have had. to  look after things about the house ���������  there were always so mahy little jobs  that the girls couldn't do ��������� and I  used all my leave working at home.  And I wouldn't have felt like being  extravagant while they were dependent on me and required- so many  things. But after Louise was married  ���������she was tho last one, and their  mother has been'dead several years  ���������why, I felt like letting'myself out a  little. It was one of the most delightful days I have ever experienced."  "But what did you, do, Uncle Charlie?" they demanded"In chorus. *  "Why," he said, -"first of all I went  down town and bought this red necktie ��������� I've always wanted one," he  added bashfully. "And then I went  out to the ball parkland bought a  bag of peanuts, and sat on the bleachers in the sun, and drank pop, and  watched the game.. And say," Uncle  ChaTlie concluded impressively, "Do  you know, I really believe it was a  better game than the one I saw fifteen  years ago when our home town beat  the Carter Corners' team thirty-seven  to twenty-eight!"  Cigarette Paper  It Is not generally know that French  manufactuTero of cigarette paper no*****  practically  supply  the * entiro , world,  the output of Austria and Italy being  insignificant.    There is probably not  I more than one person in a hundred  '���������who knows that-rdce paper, in which  tho tobacco is wrapped, has nothing  to do with rice, but is made from the  membranes of the bread-fruit tree, or,  more  commonly,  of fine  now  trim-  I mings of flax and hemp.   So light ia  this paper that five hundred of tb.6  tiny sheets only weigh an ounce.  Too Much Small Shot    '  The Smart Man burst into the room.  "Heard the news about Dickenson  getting shot?" he roared, red with  excitement.  Club -members dropped their papers  and sprang suddenly to life. *  "No!" they cried.   "When?".  "'Bout half-an-*hour ago!" gasped  the Smart Man. "I was there and  saw it!"   .'  "Where did he get shot?" broke In  another. "Down at the Ironmonger's I"  chuckled the Smart Man, slipping into  the best chair. "He bought two  pounds of it!"  "What the Bntcher Missed       ���������/  "Sorry, air," telephoned the butcher  "but we ��������� are out - of sirloin. , Why  don't your wife order you a round r'  "Wiliait's thait?" exploded Harker w  the other end of the line.

FLORENCE  HUESTON  Toronto.,  .Canadian   women   have   shown   a  genius' for establishing national  societies.     They   have   organized   nationally so much as a master of course  and. so "quietly that hardly anyone has  noticed   as  yet   this   unusual   ability  of   Canadian   women.    They   do  not  seem to bo aware of It themselves,  which,   perhaps,   is   just  .as   well.  Women  in  Great  Britain  aren  oted  outside of home life for their activity  as politloa'l canvassers.    It would be  difficult   to   estimate   the   extensive  work carried on by political organizations of women in England and Scotland.    Women  In ��������� the  United  States  have made a'name for clubs to persuade culture to come and live wtiih  thorn.    Browning clubs, Mendelsohn  clubs, Sorosis clubs, May-flower clubs,  Daughters   of  the   Revolution   clubs,  are  means  by  which .women  in  the  United States are fitting the women  of the past and presont to be women  , of   the   future.     But   the   Canadian  woman,', as    it    seems   almost,   unconsciously,   has-.mousured   the' distance between Halifax and Victoria,  and  has  said  to herself:   "We  must  find  some way by  which  the  word  of the woman In the West may reach  tho woman in the East and tho word  of  the  woman o.f  mid-Canada must  'come to both East and West."    Not  only,   national ^comradeship,   but  national   better,ment and  help are tho  alma   of   these   societies  formed   by  Canadian women.

There  are   great  missionary societies to-day among tho  women of all the Canadian churches.  These leading women of twenty-five,  yeara ago learned how to extend their  missionary societies nationally.

C. 11INIRC NEWS  A  special   to   the   Prince   En-  pert Empire  from   Stewart   says;  As   each   week   passes continued  .  evidence is brought to town in the  shape of samples  of, ore,   demonstrating the   extent   and   richness  of tho lodes of the Salmon  river  section.      After three seasons of  prospecting what is without doubt  the richest silver ore yet discovered  in the Salmon river has been found  iu places on the Silver Tip group  of four claims.    The group is situated between the Big Missouri and  flercnlese properties and is owned  by .Robert  Cameron,   Ernie Armstrong and Albert Lund  of Stewart,   and   XV.   Chappie   of  Prince  Rupert.       Samples   of   ore   were  brought., to  town by Eobert Cameron, who-rhas been in  charge of  development with a force of four  men.    The ore was  both   quartz  carrying native silver   and   steel  galena.    "We have a 14 inch pay-  streak of   ore   heavily  pregnated  with native silver and four feet of  almost   solid   steel   galena.     The  vein lies in a contact between Blate  and porphyry and we have stripped  Bame along the strike for over two  hundred feet," said Mr. Cameron.  Assays of previous samples  went  SI740 in silver and gold.    The ore  exhibited, according to those who  have had   experience   in   Cobalt,  is similar to'the rich silver of the  famous Ontario camp, though not  by any means as massive,   though  it is freely  sprinkled  with native  silver and extremely thick.   The  samples      "created      considerable  ���������favorable comment hero as to the  richness of  that   section   of   tlie  Salmon river camp.  E. Jacobs states that thero appears to be a gradual increase in  mining around Slocan  City.    The  most notable operations at present  being carried on are those at the  Lily B mine, situated in'tho vicinity of Springer creek.    The shaft,  now down about 198 feet, has been  sunk on tho vein which inclines at  GO to G5 degrees.    A level is being  opened at 190 feet depth, preparatory to drifting on the vein, which  is about twelve feet in  width.    A  crosscut of eight feet to tho hanging wall makes a small station,  giving room to turn an ore car and  dump into the skip.    The ore is  .described   as  generally   being   a  "dry" ore, though occasionally as  much as G5 per cent,  of lead is  found.   The gangue is an altered  granite Oiling with some quartz,,  tlie latter varying up to four feet  in thickness. .Next to the hanging  wall there is a paystreak of high-  grade ore containing gold, argen-  tite and native silver; this was  twelve inches wide and then it  pinched. Recently, though, it has  come in again, and at the time- the  information was obtained there  were six inches of this ore in the  face of the drift. There is another  paystreak towards the footwall,  but this has not yet been mined.  Drifting was commenced on August 11, so there has not yet been  time to get out much ore. That  taken out is good looking ore, and  profitable returns from the smeltery are expected after shipment  shall have been made. A Sullivan  large-size machine drill has lately  been put in; this is being operated  by steam. It takes the place of a  smaller drill previously used for  somo time. The Lily B group includes four claims, namely: tho  Lily B, Portland, Rainbow and  Rainbow fraction, located by G.  D. Long, N. B., Tucker and partners. Mr. Long is superintendent  for tho Lily B Mines Co., Ltd., of  Spokane, of which company R.  Mabry is president.  The Wild  Duck  placer   claims  on the north fork  of  tho Salmon  river, which were operated by  the  Peterson   Brothers   for   about   2-V  years,   and   were   yielding   them  over an average of S14 a day, about  eight years ago, working by shovel  and. hand    rocker,     Tho   claims  were purchased by a Spokane syndicate, and tbe syndicate operated  them for some time.    Tho manager  of the syndicate was very familiar  with the ground, but was accident-  ly killed ancl tho company has not  done   anything   since,    otherwise  than holding the ground.     Eighty  acres of placer ground was staked  yesterday  with an  application to  lease.    These placers are situated  on  the  north  fork of the Salmon  river, two and a half miles below  Green   city.      Tho   stakers   were  Peter Peterson and John Brau, of  Ymir, and George Davis, of Erie.'  It is practically a re-location of the  Wild Duck claims.    It is  encouraging to see placer miners like Mr.  Peterson, who operated the ground  for about two and a half years, re-  stake it as it is certain that he  would not do  this  unless it is a  proposition  that can   be  made to  pay.    There is good ground between the Wild Duck  claims and  Green city, which, no doubt,   will  be operated in a short time.���������Rossland Miner.  Jules Allard, Quebec;' I[on.,C. H.
