DQW GmmVt Twrt������r$, mmwi, B. g.  '.<.  Th������ Pack Train.  ���������The West has had noiii'e' faruouti  restaurants. Iu Kaslo when the  piuk wua-on the boom the Can Cim-  was a noted eating house, and the  name was appropriate. There were  Others, for the White Horse Star  tells about one that has just closed  in Skagway, as follows: .  {���������" "The Pack Tin in was opened by  '"Tony" and "Louie" over thirteen years ago and .when -b9 befit  -ftreet in Skagway was paHnablB  | only for a pack train. Hundreds  of other restaurants opened within  the few months following, but  there was. only one Pack Train.  In those days the majority of restaurants in Skagway opened with a  flourish but they usually went out  of business at the end of the month  and jnst before the grocer and butcher called to collect their bills.  "Coffee like your mother nsed to  make" appeared on scores of fly-  by-night restaurants in Skagway in  those days and that, perhaps, is  what' drove"nearly everybody.to  tbe Pack Train.  , Then, to eat at.the_Pack_Train'  was an evidence of prosperity. The  best people ate at the. Pack Train  and those who had the money were  the ''Best People'-' uo matter what  they had heen ,befo������ asd no matter how- they got the money.  When a member of the "perfesh"  made a winning be celebrated the  event with a big dinner, with  Mumm's Extra Dry on the side, at  the Pack Train. When a tinhorn  cleaned up a few dollars he celebrated che event at the' Pack  Train in beefsteak and onions. All  money looked alike to ''Tony" arid  ������������������Louie." The "Booster" was  served as carefully as th������������ "Dealer"  and "Gum.Boot Kitty" was accorded the same, treatment as was  the wife of tbe District Judge.  The Pack Train was truly cosmopolitan. Many a time has the  Stroller gone tbere for a meal when  he would climb onto a stool' between - a professional man and a  Y. M. C. A. secretary. By the  time he bad reached the dessert  stage of his meal "Soapy" Smith  would probably be where the professional man had sat, while tne  stool vacated by the Y. M. C. A.  secretary would be occupied by  Few Clothes Molly and next to  Molly would be the "Gin Ricky  Kid" or possibly the barkeeper  from the Red Onion saloon. Three  minutes later the seat which the  Stroller had held down might be  occupied by "Hop Head Harry,"  the lady called "Little Egypt"  who did the 'serpentine dance at  tbe Standard theatre; or some bespectacled magazine^ writer from  the east who"' would say "I came  north to get material for a story  and to study conditions''' but who  usually wound r' up' by washing  dishes in some cheap hash house  for his board until he could get a  remittance from home. ���������   .  And-throughout tbe long, changing years the. Pack .Train has shared and had a part in the joys and  sorrows, ups and downs of Skagway, but for years past the: glory  and glamor which hovered over  that eating emporium in the early  days have been missing. - The gambler with the big "spark" is seen  no more with, the "leading lady"  at Clancey's in the "Private Box  for Ladies," nor is no w: ever heard  the "Burn 'em up Kid", who bas  just won a half-dozen plunks at  roulette, give his order for "De  best youse have in de house, See?"  The iady who used win on "fixed"'  wheels and then go to the Pack  Train and spend her winnings on  "cold birds and small bots" is now  an unknown personage iu Skagway- By-The-Sen. All aro gone.  All has changed. ' ." ���������  Many a woman finds ic hard  work to live up to her photographs  Passing Ttiijong:  A. S. Black spent Chrietmas in  Spokane.  .

The Canadian Pacific Railway  Company has a floral department  which dispenses freely to the Agents  from tlie Atlantic to tlie Pacific, flower  seeds, bulbs, shrubs, etc., for tlie beau-  fication of its stations. All who have  travelled extensively have vivid recollections of tlie beautiful surroundings  at some wayside station, not only in  this country but also in Hnrope. To  a traveller who sees nothing of a  town, what an inspiiation to see the  mime of the stopping place in a beau-  j tii'ul design. There is an instant de-  | sire to see more of the town. The  ��������� Canadian Pacific is .aggressive and  ! progressive. The first transcontinental road to put 'ships on the Pacific  now puts a floral belt across the continent.  .1 u.it now the annual distribution of  bulbs is being made, the seeds, etc.,  being sent out in tlie spring, and over  half a million are being forwarded lo  the employees all along the road. After sixteen years opcialion tlm Company finds it has 1.000 gardens at, its  stations, anil this is a result that is  encouraging not only to the nianngo-  meiit of (he road, but to ihe lovers of  flowers that travel along its lines.  e go to all parts of the world for the wonderful ingredi  ents of Psychine  (pronounced Si-keen).

Allison, of 457 King Street,  London, Ont., says: "While a member of the East Kent Division Foot-  hall Team, and during a rough and  exciting game of football.

"For several weeks the doctor treated my injury, and it was thought to  he Well healed over; but no sooner  had I begun to move about than the  akin broke, and I suffered more than  at firat. For seven long weeks I was  actually laid up. It then developed  into a running sore, and I was alaim-  ed for fear the result might be a permanently stiff knee. The doctor's  treatment failed to heal the wound,  so 1 procured a supply of Zam-Buk.  "It was almost magical in its effect  on the sore. The disci-a-girg soon  ceased. The soreness and pains were  banished, and perseverance with Zam-  Buk made the badly-lacerated knee as  good and fiim as ever.

Tho   Roman   scrolls   were   adorned, j a servant who may be said to have  practically saved India to this country. .This is >W. Brendish, telegraph  muster, the sole survivor -'of those  who were present in Delhi in May,  1857, and who, in the courageous di-5  charge of his duty on the memorable  11 tli of that month, rendered invaluable service to- tho state.  It was Mr. Brendish who, without  'orders and acting on his own responsibility, despatched the telegram  which warned the 'authorities of the  Punjab of the outbreak of the terrible  mutiny. "The sepoys have come in  from Meertit and are I timing,everything," he' wired. "Mr. Todd.is dead,  and, we hear, several Europeans. We  must shut up."  The fateful news was sent to La-,  hore by Mr. Brendish, who was then  but a youth, while the mutineer*1  were pursuing their work of slaughter in every part 01 the-cantonment.  It has been acknowledged that thir  piesence of mind on the part of young  Brendish saved India. The story i?  told by Mr. Rnmdish.^'in,' a modest  narrative of his services on that  eventful day. The telegraph .staff-at  Delhi, he says, consisted of Mr.-Todd.  assistant in local charge, and two  young signallers,-Brendish and ['ilk-  ington.  On Sunduy, the 10th of (hat month,  in the forenoon, the signallers at the  Meerut office wip-d  that eighty men  of the 3rd Cavalry had been-confined-J  and   were to   be blown   away,   from |  guns for refusing to bite tlie Enfield  cartridges   only   recently   issued   to  the troops.    No further news was received, and  at -I  p.m.'the line  with  Meerut was found to be interrupted.  On the following morning Mr.' Todd  took a dak and started for Meerut, to  ascertain at what point alone the road  the break had occurred.    He got no  further than the bridge of boats over'  Jumna, for he-there met the'.mutinous 3rd Cavalry, who killed him. -  The signallers remained at their  post in tho telegraph office, wliich  was fortunately outside the city  walls, about one mile distant from  the Kashmir Gate and from the Flagstaff Tower. They saw a regiment of  native infantry with two guns pass-  along the road from cantonments towards the city, and learned afterwards that they had joined the 3rd  Cavalry. Later on, heavy n--.��������� wa=  heard in the city, and Brendish. who  was at the sisnaHins instruments,  kept on wirin������ to Lahore all news  that was brought to him.  At nnon he went out on the road to  see what was goina on, and pr"S"ntly  there passed a wounded British nlli  cer, driving from tlie city, who called  out: "For God's sake get inside and  close the doors.  "We did so," *.-iys Mr. Brendish  "but even then 1'ilkington and I did  not feel we were secure, as we were  but two lads encumbered with tin-  wife and child of Mr. Todd, whose  sad end was not yet known to us, and  surrounded by servants who perhaps  were prepared to take our lives, but  who were doubtful as to the termination of events."  For two hours more the boys held  on, listening to the firing within the  walls. At 2 p.m. Brendish went to  the Umballa instrument for the last  time and signalled to the hands at  - the 'other end of the wire the historic  message, ending "and now I am off,"  the meaning being that they were  leaving the office.  ' He and his comrade had persuaded  Mrs. Todd to accompany them to the  Flagstaff Tower, where a number of  Pluropeans had already congregated,  as. it was the only possible place of  Safety. They remained there until  sunset, and witnessed the blowing up  of the magazine.- That night' the refugees fled, and the two signallers  eventually got safe to Umballa.

The   Byzantine  emperors   were  great  patrons of books and '"the Byzantine'  coatings" or book covers were famous  for their magnificence;  they   were of  gold, silver, copper, gilt, set with jew-'  els, ancl these massive tones were carried  in imperial  processions.  "The Silver Book" of Ulphilas,  Bishop of Moesia, a translation of- the  Gospels, was rebuked by St. Jeroriie.  "Your books are covered with precious  stones," said he, "while Christ died  naked, before the gate of His temple";  which has been compared to the saying of Sadi, the Persian poet, concerning the Mohammedan scriptures: "The*.  Koran was given to reform the conduct of men, and men have only  thought of embellishing its pages."  The books produced in the early centuries of the middle ages were of remarkable beauty, inwardly and outwardly; religious manuscripts were  enriched by illuminations* within'.'  while their covers were of silver, gold  and enamel encrusted with gems.  They were bestowed as splendid gifts  by bishops and princes on monastic  houses und churches, where they were  laid on the altar or chained to a  desk.  Such chained books were named  "Catenati"; a rough outer covering  protecting them of dark skin, or sealskin, and later, of "chrevotin," a sort  of leather, or "s'endal," a coarse silk.  Such coverings were also called "chemises," ' us a "chemise of sandal  v^ood." These rare books were also  placed in caskets, in shrines or "cap-  ioe"; in Ireland they were laid in  satchels, otherwise named "polaires,"  or "Tiac-ha Ubur," and the Celtic  bookbinding possessed a peculiar  beauty of its own.  There were secular bookbinders in  the middle ages who gradually formed  themselves into guilds of craftsmen,  but the monks alone united the arts  of composition, caligraphy, illumination, bookbinding, setting of jewels,  enamelling and work on leather, silver  and gold in one artist. The monasteries of Kenilworth and Sithen were  granted unlimited rights of hunting  that they might obtain "stag hide"  for binding their books.  The European princes were great  book lovers, and songs 'of their collections are famous, though now dispersed far and wide, sometimes reappearing as treasures cast up on the shores  of time in some museum or library.  Charlemagne was a great patron of  bookbinding, surrounding himself  with Italian workmen; Theolind,  Queen of the Lombards, presented a  magnificent Gospel, overlaid with gold,  silver and jewels, to the Cathedral  of Monza.  The   Dukes  of   Burgundy   were  renowned for their libraries.   The: "Boc-  caeio" of Charles the Bold was bound  in red  velvet set with five large rubies;   another  Burgundian   book   was  velvet-bound   set   with   58   pearls   of  great size, with a small "silver instrument" for turning the pages. "Pippes"  were also attached  to some of these  costly tones; they were little bars of  silver or gold, forming "supports for  markers," sometimes the "pippe" was  S3t with "rubies, while the  numerous  markers were adorned with pearls.  The library"o'f Philip the Good of  Burgundy in the 15th century*' surpassed all the- European book collections of the time; it contained nearly  10,000 volumes, nearly all ric-hly illuminated on vellum, with bindings of  damask satin and velvet encrusted by  jewels, with clasps of ci'a^eJ gold and  gems, Bruges, where the d-acal court  was held, was filled with liteiary  craftsmen, and some of their splendid  productions are still to be seen-ia the  Belgian Royal Library.  Henry VI. of England possessed a  fine library. Lady Jane Grey, Mary  Queen of Scots and Catherine de Medi-  eis were all book lovers; the Scottish  Queen usually had her books bound  in black, but one notable volume wa������  covered in red velvet, clasped with  platina and sted'ed  with jewel*:.  In 1853 the French King, Henry III.,  passed a law''prohibiting-the .wearing  of jewels by the middle class, with  special permission to adorn their missels ancl devotional books with diamonds; they mijtht ".iuive' four dia  monds on their book covers, the nobles  five and the princes any number. In  the middle of the ICth century, when  Buda was sacked by the Turks, magnificent manuscripts were ruined for  their jewels.

Don't .imprison the disease germs in  your skin by the use of greasy salves,  ancl thus encourage them to multiply.

LESTER MACKENZIE, Secty  Last spring, when we heard that  Fred Stork was i tinning- for the  mayoralty of Prince Rupert, we  passed a few I'-m-irka about the  big, fat biill-doz*'!', find the Empire  of that city evidently thought we  were in tlie wrong. However, th"  editor of Rupe's oldest journal did  not know as much ;is we did abou-  Freddie ; but his eves have silica  been opened, aud he cm now see  that false alaim-Fred Stork-in his  true light. In a recent edition of  the Empire, the editor calls Stork  a 'deliberateand unmitigated liar,'  and goes on to say :  "We can only congratulate the  city upon the fact that in a few  days now it will be rid of one of  the worst mayors which ever disgraced any city, and we say this  fully acknowledging our own mistaken error in having championed  the cause of one so unworthy. The  question now is, are the people  going to elect a similar dupe in  Alderman Mobley, who, fortunately, has been tried and found  wanting? If the citizens turn  down The Empire's honest effort  on behalf of the public good, they  will have themselves to blame if  a Tammany Hall reign becomes so  firmly entrenched in Prince Rupert as to put that of New York to  shame."  Evidently, Stork Is like a suit of  shoddy clothes. He looks'nice on  the start, but does not wear well.  The public life of Canada ie disgraced by too many dubs of the  Stork variety. Seeking fame without ability, they push themselves  to tho front, through making a  noiseanil physical force; but eventually, the public gets wise and  dump? them into the sump of  oblivion. It is now up to Freddie  to don his red coat and make for  the green timber of some new  camp where the natives do not  read the papers.  .-.eing operated at about 2,200 tonB  daily, full capacity.  Stimu of the directors are In favor  .<f waiting until $500,000 is ac-  ���������vnlated before any dividends  are paid, and they may influence  tbe others to wait some time yet  before making any disbursement  to shareholders. There has been  considerable demand for over a  year now for dividends, however,  which it is claimed was promised  by the directors, and it is not likely that these demands can long be  overlooked with a dividend fund  accumulated equal to 10 per cent,  on the stock.  The directors will meet this  week, but' the dividend question  will probably not be taken np.���������  Wall Street Journal.  LOWERY'S CLAIM  During the 87 montlin that Lowery's  Claim was on earth it did business nil  over the world. It was the moHt  unique, independent ond ffarlens journal ever produced in Canada. Political  and theological enemies purrmed it with  the venom' of a nitlluHiiafce until the  government shut it out of the mail**,  and its editor ccasad to puhlish it,  paitly on account of a lazy liver and  partly bocuiHe it taken a pile of money  to run ;t paper thai is outlawed. 1 lien-  arc Btill 25 different editions of tlii.-i condemned journal in print. Bend 10 cents  and get ono or.<2 50 and got the bunch  K.T LOVVKKY,  Greenwood, P, C-  B. C. COPPER Oo.  The official announcement that  the B. C. Copper Co. has 8300,000  on hand in the shape of a dividend  fund, seems to indicate that some  distribution will be made to shareholders soon. This amount is  equivalent to slightly over 10 per  cent, on the outstanding stock.  President Erb, who is in favor  of paying a dividend soon, says  tLat the question of dividends will  probably be taken up hy tho directory the latter part of January.  By that, time thev will know just  whnt the company can do running  at full capacity. The largo slag  locomotive , the lack of which in  terfered with full operation in  November, was rccoived on Dec-  A Progressive Company.  The B. C. Copper Co. is estimated to have earned 8275,000 daring  its fiscal year, which ended November 30. This result was accomplished on a production of slightly  less than 7,000,000 pounds of copper, and in spite of the fact that  ^rations were suspended about  -ix weeks last spring because of  iabor troubles.  The success of the B. C. Copper  Co. can be credited almost wholly  to the energy and ability of its  management. Four or five years  ago the obituary of its principal  mine, the Mother Lode, was written by a well known consulting  engineer. It is tbe same kind of a  mine as the Granby, and this engineer figured out that there was a  given tonnage of ore in the mine,  and no more. Since that time a  greater tonnage than his estimate  has been mined and smelted, and  there is more ore blocked out and  better underground prospects now  than ever before in the history of  the mine.  The company's mine management includes two or three men of  exceptional talent. They long ago  recognized the weakness of the  company's position from a mining  standpoint, and cast about to obtain new properties. The most  important purchase was a controlling interest in the Dominion Copper company, whose properties adjoin thoRe of the Granby. Through  this purchase tbe company obtained a very large ��������� tonnage of low  grade ore available' for immediate  mining. The Lone Star and Washington claims, another purchase,  are located just south of the Can;  adian line. They bave been under  development for four or five years  and a large tonnage of low grade  ore put in sight. The company is  now completing a tramway five or  six miles long, to bring this ore  down to a railroad point near the  smelter.  Somo of the ore deposits purchased are very high in silica, and  others carry a very satisfactory excess of iron and sulphur.   At least  one mine carries practically all its  values in gold and silver.   One deposit of 70,000 to 100,000 tons; of  highly.oxidized gold ore has been  developed  and  a small  cyanide  plant will be erected to treat it.  It is figured out that the coBt of a  plant, mining,  treatment and all  other expenses will be overbalanced  by the earnings, and a substantial  net profit left.   After this ore body  has been treated and exhausted, as  a simple manufacturing proposition  tbe cyanide mill will bo dismantled.  As a result of the progressive  policy of its management on the  one hand arid extreme efficiency  and economy on the  other,   the  company is now treating oro from  six or coven different iniues, which  altogether  yieldH  an   average  of  about 17 pounds of copper, and a  little over 81 per ton in gold and  g aiMiani Boyd, Proprietor,  0>fi90O08-eMMQ8l  PHOENIX, B.
