The  Eye-Opeuer says:  "A Chicago powder company furnishes  practically every dollar's worth of explosives used on this work and when it is  understood that some blasts, single holes,  used up a thousand dollars' worth of dy-  nainite,,you can bet your life that it is a  sweet and irresistabfe gratt. The highest price is being paid for second and  third class explosives. Powder that has  been condemned by railway contractors  on the other side 'is being unloaded in  come, mysterious way on the work along  Hie line of the National Transcontinental.  That accounts for the way workmen are  being killed below Kciiora at present.  The McArthur people killed over one  hundred laot year and crippled twice as  many. In one place they killed a bunch  of seven, and only two weeks ago 111  Chambers.' camp nine were killed outright. In every case experienced powder  workers admit that they are unable to  account for these fatalties unless it is due  to inferior dynamite.  "Who made thisexclusive contract with  the Chicago dynamite manufacturers?  In that item alone there is a story that  will show graft rampant. The .stun" is  ordered iu advance for the contractors by  tons. One firm last winter below Kenora  used forty thousand dollars' worth of  powder a month. This shows the size of  the graft.  " See what a different story will be told  ou the Ii. C. contracts of the G. T.T.  It will be different, for, the contractors  buy their "dynamite, where they will and  they know they can't get powder men to |  handle work where thev are killing too  large a percentage of workmen. Hes~ides,  the good old f.abor purty in Ii. C. looks  I    The Dominion   Copper   Co.   resumed  ������������������york at its mines last week.   There are  sixty men at the Rawhide* and twentv  each at the "Brooklyn and Sunset.   Fiftv  more men will be put to work within a  month. _ A few men are working at the |  Mountain   Rose   taking out ore   under  contract.*  At the Phoenix mines Chas.  Rundberg is superintendent, while R. H.  Ilewar acts in  that capacity at the Sunset.   Iu a few days ten men will be put  to work at the Athelstan.   A tram is- to  be put in between the Idaho and Brooklyn   mines.     When in   operation   this  tram  will effect a saving of 15 cents a  ton upon shipments of the Idaho ore and  enable them to procure a better railway  service via the C. P. R. than thev have  had from the Great Northern.  The big 750-ton  furnace of the smelter  at Boundary Falls was blown in without  a hitch on Sunday afternoon and is treating 600 tons of ore daily.   A better track  system is to be put in within a month to  the two  smaller   furnaces,   which   will j  enable the company to feed them at a re-  duction in expense of J 1,000 a month.  By August all the furnaces will be iu  operation  and   then   the  smelter  will  handle about 1200 tons of ore daily.   To  day fifty men are employed at the smelter.  When in full operation 12*; men will be  employed, while  150 will' find employment in the mines.   The wages paid at  the smelter are the same as those paid in  Greenwood, with a few slight alterations  owing to conditions.   There is enough of  ore and coke Co last two weeks at the  smeller and fresh ore commenced arriving from the  Brooklyn and Sunset ou  Tuesday.   The C. V. R. statesth.it within  a week   there will be no fear of coke  being delayed in transmission.  P. F. Roosa is the new manager of the  smelter, vice W. C. Thomas, who will  superintend a mine in Utah. J M. Car-  while is general foreman, and II. W.  Newton, formerly at the IMarysville  smelter, has charge of the assaying department. Payday at the smelter wilt be  on the 5th of each month. At the mines  it will be on the 10th. Messrs. Johnson  and Melville will return to the Boundary  next week and remain for some time.

Harry Bahrs, says the Trumpet, is in  Keiemeos, making arrangements to commence work for the Gladstone Power and  Tunnel company. A power plant is to  be built at Susap falls.

Quite a number of Kooteuav and Boundary men are iuteiested iu Copper on the  Queen Charlotte islands. At Collison  Bay Joe Adams and J. ^Carlisle are developing some copper prospects.  The last shipments from the Jap mine  at Ikeda bay have recouped the company  for its outlay. Joe Mack is superintendent of the mine.  Some good copper ore has been recently found at Tasco harbor cn the west  coast of Moresby island by A Going. He  says that at that point there is a mountain of chalcopynte ore. Going formerly  lived in Trout Lake.  The prospectors are pleased with the  action of the government in making a  separate mining division on the islands.  E. M. Sandilauds, the recorder at Jed-  way, recorded o\er forty claims in Mav,  while in June the number of claims recorded will go over the hundred mark.  Ihe Granby is now making thiitv million pounds of copper a year at a cast of  about eight cents a-pound. The output  will be increased before next winter.  Ed.

After the grout kindness I had already received from everyone on  board the vessel, it seemed worse  than ungrateful lo deceive them. Lint  I dared not tell tho truih. For all 1  knew to the contrary, my mime might  have boon proclaimed everywhere in  England before they left.  ".My name is Wrox ford," 1 said,  fooling about as guilty as a man could  well do.  "Any relation lo the Wroxfords of  Shrewsbury?" asked the Captain with  mild curiosity.  "Not that I'm aware of," I answered.  "I  have been  living  out of England   for  many  years,  and   have  no  ���������knowledge of my relations."  "It's not a common name," continued the skipper; "that Is why J  ask. Sir George Wrexford is one ol  our directors, und a splendid fellow.  1 thought it was just, possible that  you might be some connection of his.  Now, if you will excuse mo, I'll bo off.  Take my advice and1 turn iu early.  I'm sorry to say we're carrying our  full complement of passengers, so  that I cannot give you ;i proper berth;  but I've ordered a bed to be made up  for you in my churl-room, where you  have been all day to-day. If you can  manage to make yourself comfortable  there it is quite at your service."  "It is very kind of you lo put yourself to so much inconvenience," I answered. "I fpar by the time wo reach  Cape Town I shall have caused you a  considerable amount of trouble."  "Not at all! Not at all!" the hospitable skipper replied, as he rose  to go. "I'm only too glad to have picked you up. It's our duty to do -what  we can for each other, for we none  of us know when we may bo placed j  in a similar plight ourselves."  After he left mo, f was not long in  following the good advice he had  given me; and when I had once reached my couch, fell into a dreamless  sleep, from which I did not wake until  after eight o'clock next morning. Indeed, I don't know that I should have  waked even then, had 1 not been disturbed by the noise made by someone entering the cabin. It proved to  be the doctor.  "How are you fooling this morning?" he asked, when he had felt my  pulse.  "Ever so much better," I replied.  "In fact, I think I'm quite myself  again. How is Miss Maybourne?"  "Still progressing satisfactorily,"  he answered. "She bids ine give you  her kind regards. She has been most  constant in her enquiries after your  welfa.ro."  I don't know whether my face revealed my secret, or whether it was  only supposition on his part, but he  looked at me pretty hard for a moment, and then laughed outright.  "You may not know it." he said,  "but when all's said and done, you're  a jolly lucky follow."  I sighed, and hesitated a moment  before I replied.  "I'm afraid you're mistaken," I said.  "Luck and I have never been companions. I doubt.if there is a man  in this world whose career has been  more devoid of good fortune than  mine. As a boy, I was unlucky in j  everything I undertook. If I played I  cricket, I was always either bowled  for a duck's egg, or run out just as  ' I was beginning to score. If there was  an accident in the football field, when  I was playing, I was invariably the  sufferer. I left Oxford under a cloud,  because I could not explain something  that I knew to be a mistake on the  part of the authorities. I quarrelled  with my family on the same misunderstanding. I was once on the verge  of becoming a millionaire, but illness  prevented my taking advantage of my  opportunity; and while I was thus  delayed another man stepped in and  forestalled me. I had a legacy, but it  brought me nothing but ill-luck, and  has finally driven me out of England."  "And since then thc tide of ill-fortune has turned." he said. "A beautiful and wealthy girl falls overboard���������  you dive in, and rescue her. I have  heard about that, you see. The ship  you are traveling by goes to the bottom���������you save your own and the same  girl's life. Then, as if that is not  enough, you try your luck a third  time; and, just as a terrible fate  seems to be going to settle you for  good and all, we heave in sight and  rescue you. Now you have Miss llay-  bourhe's gratitude, which would  strike most men as a more than desirable possession, and at the same  time you will have her father's."  "And, by Ihe peculiar irony of fate,  both come to me when I am quite  powerless to take advantage of them."  "Come, come, you mustn't let yourself down like 'Jus. You know very  well what the end of It all will be,  If you spend your life believing yourself to bo a marked man."  "You mean that 1 shall lose my  reason? No. no! you needn't be afraid  of that, f co-iie of a hard-headed race  that has not been in the* habit of  stocking asylums."  "I am glad of that. Now what do  you say to setting up? I'll have your  breakfast sent to you in here, and  after you've eaten  it, I'll    introduce  t am nor. uisin-e* tnoir.sympamy as  much as I had imagined 1 should do.  There was something so spontaneous  and unaffected about it'that I would  have defied even the most sensitive  to take offence. To my astonishment,  I discovered that no less ihan three  were personal friends of Miss May-  bourne's, though "all confessed to  having failed in recognizing her when  the boat came alongside. For the  greater part of the morning I remained chatting in my chair, and by midday felt so much stronger that, on  the doctor's suggestion, veulurod to  accompany him down to the saloon  for lunch. The King of Carthage was  a finer vessel in every way than the  ill-fated Fiji Princess. Her saloon  was situated amidships, and could  have contained the other twice over  comfortably. The appointments generally wore on a scale of great magnificence; and, from what 1 saw al lunch,  the living was on a scale to correspond. 1 sat at a small table presided  over by tho doctor, and situated near  the foot of thc companion ladder. In  the pauses of the meal I looked round  at tho fine paintings lot imo the  panels between tho ports, at the thick  carpet upon tho floor, the glass dome  overhead, and then at tho alloy-ways  leading to tlie cabins at either end.  In which direction did Miss May-  bourne's cabin lie, I wondered. The  doctor must have guessed what was  passing in my mind, for he nodded  his head towards tho after-alley on  the starboard side, and from that  time forward I found my eyes continually reverting to it.  Luncheon over, I returned to the  promenade-deck, and, after a smoke  ���������the first in which I had indulged  since we left the island���������acted on  Ihe doctor's advice, and went to my  cabin to lie down for an hour or so.  When I returned to tho deck, afternoon lea was going forward, and a  chair having been found for me, I was  inviled lo take a cup. While I was  drinking it, tho skipper put in an  appearance. Ho waited until I had  finished, and then said he would like  to show me something if I would accompany him along the deck to his  private cabin. When we reached it,  he opened the door and invited mo  to enter. I did so, and, as I crossed  the threshold, gave a little start of  surprise, for Miss "Maybourne was  there, lying upon Ihe locker.  "Why, Miss Maybourne!" I cried,  in complete astonishment, "this is a  pleasant surprise. I had no idea you  were about agin. I hope you are feeling stronger."  "Much stronger," she answered. "I  expect I shall soon be quite myself  again, now that I have once made a  start. Mr. Wrexford, I asked Captain  Blockman to- let me see you in here  for the first time, in order that I  might have an opportunity of expressing my gratitude to you before we  face tlie passengers. You cannot imagine how grateful I am to you for all  you have done for me since that awful  night when tho Fiji Princess wont  down. How can I ever repay you for  it?"  "By becoming yourself again as  quickly as possible," I answered; "I  ask no better payment."  I thought she looked at me in  rather a strange way as I said this;  but it, was not until some time later  that I knew the reason of it. At the  time I would have given worlds to  have spoken the thoughts that were  in my mind; but that being impossible, I had to hold my tongue, though  my heart should    break    under the  strain. We were both silent for a lit-"  tie while, and then Miss Maybourne  took my hand, and I could see that  she was steeling herself to ask some  question, and was not quite certain  what answer she would receive to  it.  "Mr. Wrexford," she began, and  there was a little falter in her voice  as she spoke, "you told me on board  the Fiji Princess that you were going  to South Africa to try and obtain employment. You must forgive my saying anything about it, but I also  gathered from what you told'me that  you would arrive there without influence of any sort. Now, I want you  to promise me that you will lot papa  help you. I'm sure he will be only  too grateful for the chance. It would  be a kindness to him, for he will remember that, but for you, ho would  never have seen me again."  "I did not do it for the sake of reward, Miss Maybourne," I answered,  with ati outburst of foolish pride that  was not very becoming to me.  "Who knows that better than I?"  she replied, her face flushing at the  thought that she had offended me.  "But you must not be angry with me.  It would be kind of you -to let me  show my gratitude in some way. Papa  would be so glad to give you letters  of introduction, or to introduce you  personally to people of influence, and  then there is nothing you might not  be able to do. You will let him help  you, won't you?"  If she could only have known what  she was asking of me! To be introduced to the prominent people of the  colony was the very last thing in  the world I wanted. My desire was to  not only attract as little attention as  might be, but also to get up country  and beyond tho reach of civilization  as quickly as possible.  JoiiKeu ior Deyonn an ner sex.  "And so to-morrow, after all our  adventju-os, wo shall bo in Cape  Town," she said. "Have you thought  of the promise you gave me a fortnight ago?"  "What promise was that?" I asked, j  though I knew full well to what she  alluded.  "To lot papa find you some employment. I do hope you will allow  lit in to do so."  1 looked at her.as she stood beside  me, one liltlo hand resting on the  rail and her beautiful eyes gazing  across the starlit soa, and thought  how hard it was to resist her. But  at any cost I could not remain in  Capo Town. Every hour I spent there  .vould bring mo into greater danger.  "I have boon thinking it over as I  promised," I said, "and I have come  to tho conclusion that it would not  be wise for me to accept you offer.  1 have told you repeatedly, Miss Maybourne, that I am not like oilier men.  God knows how heartily 1 repent my  foolish past. But repentance, however sincere, will not take away tho  stain. I want to got away from civilization as far and as quickly as possible. For this reason immediately  we arrive I shall start for the Transvaal, and once there shall endeavor  to carve out a new name and a new  life for myself. This lime. Providence-  helping me, It shall be a life of honor."  "God grant you may succeed!" she  said, but so softly that I could scarcely hear It.  "Alay 1 loll myself that 1 have your  good wishes, Miss Maybourne?" I asked, with, 1 believe, a little tremor iu  my voice.  "Every good wish I have is yours,"  she replied. "I should be worse than  ungrateful, after all you have done  for mo, If I did not take an interest  in your future."  Then I did a thing for which it was  long before I could forgive myself.  Heaven alone knows what induced  me to do it; but if my life had depended on it l could not have acted  otherwise. I took her hand in mine*and  drew her a little closer to me.  "Agnes," I said, very softly, as she  turned her beautiful face towards mo,  "to-morrow we shall be separated,  perhaps never to meet again. After  to-night .it is possible, if not probable,  that we shall not have another opportunity of being alone together. You  don't know what your companionship  has been to me. Before I met you, I  was desperate. My life was not worth  living; but you have changed it all���������  you have made me a better man. You  have taught me to love you, and in  that love I have found my belief in  all. that is good���������even, I believe, a  faith in God. Oh, Agnes, Agnes! I am  not worthy to touch the ground you  have'walked on, but I lovo you as I  shall never love woman again!"  She was trembling violently, but  she did not speak. Her silence had  the effect, however, of bringing me to  myself, and it showed me my conduct in all its naked baseness.  "Forgive me," I whispered; "it was  vile of me to have insulted you with  this avowal. Forget���������and forgive, if  you can���������that 1 ever spoke thc words.  Remember mo only as a man, the  most miserable in Hie whole world,  who would count it heaven to be allowed to lay down his life for you  or those you love. Oh, Agnes! -is it  possible that you can forgive me?"  "1 have nothing to forgive," she  said, looking up into my face with  those proud, fearless eyes that seem-  .ed to hold all the truth in the world;  "I am proud beyond measure'tb think"  you love me."  When I heard these precious words,  I could have fallen at her feet and  kissed tho hem of her dress; but 1  dared not speak, lest I should forget  myself in my joy, and say something  for which 1 should never be able to  atone. Agnes, however, was braver  than I.  "Mr. Wrexford,"    she   said,    "you  have told me that you love me, and  now you are reproaching yourself for  having done so. Is it because, as you  say, you are poor? Do you think so  badly of mo as to imagine that that  could make any difference to me?"  "I could not think so badly of you  if I tried," I answered.  "You have said that you love me?"  "And  I  moan  it. I  love you as I  believe man never loved woman before���������certainly as I shall never love  again."  Then, lowering her head so that I  could not see her face, she whispered���������  "Will it make you happier if I suy  that I love you?"  Her voice was soft as the breath  HE ASPIRED TOO SOON.

True to his  promise, my breakfast was brought  to me by a steward, and I partook of  it on the chart-room table. Just as I  finished the doctor reappeared, nnd,  after a little conversation, we left  the cabin and proceeded out on to the  dock together. Here we found the  majority of the passengers promenading, or seated In their chairs. Among  them I noticed two clergymen, two  or three elderly gentlemen of tho  colonial merchant type, a couple of  dapper young fellows whom I set  down In my own mind as belonging  to the military profession, the usual  number of elderly ladles, half a dozen  younger ones, of more or Joss fascinating appearances, and the same  number of children, As soon as thoy  saw mo several of those seated rose  and camo to meet us.

However, I was not going to make  Miss Maybourne unhappy on the  first day of her convalescence, so I  promised to consider the matter, and  let her know my decision before wo  reached Cape Town. By this compromise I hoped to be able to hit  upon some way out of the difficulty  before then.  From that day forward the voyage  was as pleasant as it would be possible for ono to be. Dclicato as wan  our position on board, we wero not  allowed for one moment to feel that  wo were not upon thc same footing  as those who had paid heavily for  their accommodation. The officers  and passengers vied with each other  hi showing us kindnesses, and, as  may be Imagined, wo were not slow  to express our gratitude,  Day after day slipped quickly by,  and each ono brought us nearer and  nearer to our destination. As the distance lessened my old fears returned  upon me. After all tho attention I had  received from our fellow-travelers,  after Miss Maybourne's gracious behavior towards me, It will be readily  imagined how much I dreaded the  chance of exposure. How much better, I asked myself, would It not be  to drop overboard while my secret  was still undiscovered, than to stay  on board and be proclaimed a murderer before them nil?  On the overling prior to our reaching Cape Town I was leaning on the  rails of thc promenade deck, Just below tho bridge, when Miss Maybourne  left a lady with whom she had been  conversing, and came and stood beside me. Tho evening was cool, and  for this reason she had thrown *n lace  mantilla, lent hor by one of tho passengers, over her head, and had drap*  od it round hor shapely neck. It gave  her an infinitely charming appearance; Indeed, In my eyos, she appeared the  most  beautiful of all  God's I  of the evening rustling some tiny lcai,  but it made my heart leap with a'de-  light I had never known before, and  then sink deeper and deeper down  with a greater shame.  "God forbid!" I cried, n.lmost fiercely. "l\xi niiisc not love nic. You shall  not do so. I am not worthy even that  yon should think of mo."  "Vou are worthy of a. great deal  more." she answered. "Oil, why will  you so continually reproach yourself?"  "Because, Agnes, my conscience  will not lot me be silent," I cried.  "Because, Agnes, you do not know the  shame of my life."  "I will not let you say 'shame,'"  she replied. "Have I not grown to  know you better than you know yourself?"  How little she knew of me! How  little she guessed what I was! We  were both silent again, and for nearly  five minutes. I was the first to speak.  And It took all the pluck of which I  was master to say what was in my  mind.  "Agnes," I began, "this must bo the  end of such talk between us. God  knows, If I were able in honor to do  so, I would take your lovo, and hold  you against the world. But, as things  arc, to do that would be to proclaim  myself the most despicable villain In  existence. You must not ask mo why.  I could not toll you. But some day, tr  by chance you should hear the world's  verdict, try to remember that, whatever I may have been, I did my best  to behave like a man of honor to you."  She did not answer, but dropped  her head on to her hands and sobbed  as If her heart would break*. Then, regaining her composure a little, slio  stood up again and faced me. Holding out hor hand, sho said:  "You have told me that you love  me. I have said that I Jovo you. You  say that we must part. Let It bo so.  You know. best. May God have mercy  on us both!"  I tried to say "Amen," but my  volco refused to servo me, and as I  turned and looked across the sea I  felt tho hot salt tears rolling down  my cheeks.

For dogs to be enlisted in every great  army of the world, either in the ambulance department or as scouts and dispatch bearers, is surely something of a  novelty.  la the Franco-Prussian war out of  129,000 killed and wounded 13,000 were  returned as "missing." And who shall  ������ay what these men endured? Every  war of the future, however, will see  the dog lessening its horror. In Germany his-education is at this moment  being tnken In hand by a voluntary society with nearly 2,000 members  among them some of the most able officers Iu that country's g-eat army.  The war dog proper Is used for sentry,  messenger and scouting service, wlii!**.  the ambulance dog's training Inclines  him only to scour ISlC battlefield in  Bcarch of the wounded and missing.  The needs of modern warfare not  only call for vast enlarging of the battlefield, but also compel the troops to  take every advantage of natural cover.

In this  emergency  Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills  is  the  medicine  these    voting    men  should   take.    These    pills    actually  make rich, red blood.   Thev clear the  skin   of   pimples   and  eruptions   and  bring health, strength and energy.  Here is the experience of Adolphe  Holland,    of   St.   Jerome,    Que.,    a  young man 19 years of age, who says:  For more  than  a-year    I   suffered  from  general weakness,/ and I  gradually grew so weak that I was forced  to abandon my work as a clerk.   My  appetite failed me, I had occasional  violent headaches and I began to suffer from  indigestion.    I  was  failing  so rapidly that I began to fear- that  consumption was fastening itself upon me.   Our family doctor treated mn  but I-did not gain tinder his care.   I  wtis in a very discouraged state when  a friend from Montreal came to see  me.*  He strongly advised me to trv  Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.    I did sb  and inside of three weeks* I began to  feel better, my appetite began to improve and I seemed to have a feeling  of new cpuragc.   I continued the pills  till I had taken ten boxes and I am  now enjoying.the best health I ever  -had.   My cure surprised many of my  friends  who  began to regard me  as  incurable, and I strongly advise other  young men who are weak to follow  my example and give Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills a fair trial."    Bad  blood  is tho cause of all common diseases  like   anaemia,   headaches,   neuralgia,  rheumatism, sciatica, indigestion,  all  [ nervous  troubles,  general    weakness,  and the special ailments that onlv women folk know.    Dr. Williams' "Pink  Pills are the one. cure, because thev  go right to the root of the trouble iii  the  blood.    Tliey    change    the    bad  blood into good blood, and thus bring  health,   strength   and    energy.    You  can get these pills from any medicine  dealer, or by mail at 50c"a box, or  six   boxes   for   ?2.50    from   the   Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co.,    Brockville,  Ont.

Di'itiNG the summer in America  wicked people do not have to die  in order to get punished. All they  have to do is to live iu New York  or Chicago during July and August.  Nkauly all the daily papers in  Canada arc owned or controlled by  trusts, corporations or politicians.  The people are to blame for this,  because they will not support independent papers.  lx some towns the church is  gradually evolving into a mercantile association. This will eventually drive some merchants to giving away a prayer with every  package of goods.  Modesty has arrived in erotic  Pittsburg. The rich society girls  of that cit}* have positively refused  to appear in tights while singing  for a charitable object in the  *' Pirates of Penzance."  Christian Science, with its optimistic methods of teaehing religion, is fast becoming the great  chureh of America. Iu loss than  thirty years there will practically  be only two churehs on this continent���������the J Rom an Catholic and  Christian Science, with ' he-re and  there a Presbyterian.  The Tourist Association iu Victoria is endowed with a large  amount qf common sense. It is  advertising tho advantages of that  eity in newspapers throughout the  States and Canada. - If other  towns and cities would do more  advertising some of .them would  have fewer en:pty, unpainted buildings in their midst. Proper press  advertising is like water to a garden in a dry climate. It will make  almost anything grow from a city  to the business of a dealer in faded  furniture. Try some there is plenty  for all.    Socialism is fast gaining ground  in "England and at a recent meeting of the Tan-Anglican Congress  in London every speaker, with the  exception of one, displayed a  socialistic tendency. The abolition of wage-earning and the pub-  lie maintenance of child-bearing  mothers were among the reforms  predicted or advocated. As the  church is nearly always conservative, the expression at the Congress in London is significant of  the efforts being made by the  masses to reach higher .ground.  Real Socialism will be a blessing  but!the counterfeit article is a curse.  Widdowson, Assayer, Nelson, B. C.  Men who imagine' that they are*  going to set the world  ablaze generally haven't got enough  energy  to start a fire in the kitchen stove.  The Columbia cigar is a large  and free-smoking cigar. It is sold  in all mountain, towns and made  in Nelson.  Automobile caps are worn by  men who couldn't buy an auto if  they were selling for live dollars a  dozen.  The Kootenay Cigar Co. of Nelson have in the Royal Seal a cigar  that is known,and smoked between  the wheat'Country and the blue  Pacific.  Tub death of Cleveland removes  the last living ex-president of the  United States. He was highly regarded in the "United States and  Great Britain, even if he had at  one time almost raised a great war  by twisting the tail of the British  lion over certain unpleasant conditions in that little, rotten, republic,  Venezuela. In spite of his attitude upon Venezuelan affairs some  of the English papers claimed that  he was the greatest president since  the days of Washington.* However, that is a matter of outside  opinion, for more than half the  people on the American continent  do not consider that he stood even  close to .TeiVcrsou and ���������'Abe-Lincoln.  r.v Toronto even the Anglican  church has declared against the  playing of bridge and the good people of that city will now have to  .send their pennies out west to help  convert thc heathen.  Tni'i'K must be some booze or  painkiller in Prince Rupert. Those  old pioneer.*' from Kootenay and  other Western points are surely  not irrigating upon count dew. Out  in the rain and mud somebody  must havo a cache.  Tin-: fact that tho sheriff has his  horse picketed on the lot next to  this oilice does not mean that tho  oilice haH been raided, It is a sign  that the best grass in the country  grows next to the homo of Greenwood's leading excitement.  Pi;iiuhiii'i-s who accept adver-  tisementH from advertising agencies are dividing their profits with  middle men; When publishers  get wise thoy will do business direct with all advertisers, thereby  making more money with less risk  and annoyance,   '  Tun gentlemen who write interior news for tlie Vancouver  papers are very powerful. Recently they have moved the Mother  Lode initio from near Greenwood  to Nelson without any one seeing  them  dragging it over a hundred  At the present time there is a  strong competition between the  man who rocks the boat and the  hoy who doesn't know the gun is  loaded. The chap who breaks  through the thin ice has gone off  shift for a short time, and the Rube  who blows out the gas is not much  in evidence during the open window season. The man who drinks  poison by mistake, and the fool  w.ho falls off a train are still furnishing a few items for the papers  and helping to keep the coffin factories from closing down. - Then  there is the missed hole route, and  the oven method of thawing powder. Fools make a heap of business for coroners, doctors and undertakers.         During the week certain members of the Hock had been paying  over much attention to sampling  the local whiskey, and the minister took advantage of his position in the pulpit to administer  gentle reproof. "An' I tell ye,  one, an' all, ye're on the way till  perdition 1" he cried. At that  moment a fly settled on the Bible  before him. He raised his fist.  "Ye're gaein' tae belli" he  shouted. "An' ye'll all get there  just sae sure as���������sa sure as I ding  the life oot o' this ilee !" His list  crashed down as he uttered the  words ; then he looked to see the  result of his handiwork. "Missed!"  he ejaculated. /'Ah ! weel maybe  there's a chance for some o' ye yet!'  The Kootenay Belle reigns supreme in many a camp. It is a  cigar that brings delight aud appreciation wherever smoked,  There is always room at the top  for the man who can push tho  other fellow off.  If you give the ordinary man a  chance he'll tell you more about;  himself in half an hour than you'  could find out in a month unquestioning him.'  Largest stock of jewelry in the  Boundary to select from. E. A.  Black, Phoenix.  The most distant relatives are  notalways those who live farthest  away���������They may be' living next  door.  Forty grown people cannot keep  one infuriate baby quiet.  Our 100S patterns of Wall Paper  put all others completely in the  shade.    Mo line Bros.  An effort is being made to have  the famous Kilties Band stop over  here for one concert on Monday,  July 0th.  This will be the farewell appearance of this most popular organization, as they sail for their four-  yeai-s'criiice around the world from  Vancouver, B. C, on July 19lh.  For this memorable tour the  band has been strengthened even  beyond their late numbers, when  appearing before England's king,  including the celebrated Albert  Clan Johnstone troup of pipers and  dancers. Two Giant Drum Majors, each over seven feet tall.  The Champion Boy Piper of the  world, and the famous male choir  of from 10 to 20 pieces.  Their appearance here will be a  red letter day for our city, and the  parade will take place shortly after  their arrival.
