Mann,  vice-president of the Canadian  Northern railway, is preparing to  operate in the Portlaud Canal mining district, is evidenced in the  annouuedment now made that he  is behind tho Pacific and Alaska  Railway company, whose charter  is before the local legislature at the  committee stage.  Mr. Mann is owner of the Portland Canal Short Line, which runs  from the town of Stewart to the  head of Bear river, he having  bought out the charter of that road  some few months ago. Iloklins  also the charter of tne Pacific and  Alaska railway, which traverses  Canadian territory to a connection  with a railway through American  territory to tidewater at the head  of Portland Canal, Air. Mann will  have control of the two ore-handling lines of the district. His two  roads will virtually encircle the  mineral-bearing zone of the new  mining camp, aud should, in the  opinion of those conversant with  the district, bring him substantial  profits in their.operation.  The latest designs in wall papers  can be seen at Cole's B.-ok store.  Another Railway.  Mike King, a well known timber  man and capitalist of Victoria, .will  shortly leave the Capital City for  Prince Rupert with a view to arranging for surveys of a railway  between tho Northern metropolis  and Port Simpson. At the last  session of tho provincial legislature Mr. King Hecured a charter  for a railway ' between the two  points, a distance of twenty odd  miles. .In view, of the possible  lumbering interest ami the mining  development on Observatory Iutet,  Port Simpson would once again  have a lease of life with the advent  of-tlio " iron horse," as it is the  nearest to the initios on thc Inlet.  -Stewart Miner.

It is not improbable that  operations will -be commenced  simultaneously on both sides of the  summit.  -The C.   P.   R.  location survey '  was completed a few days ago.    It  is   understood   that   a  maximum  gradient of 2 2 per cent going west  has been secured.    This is a lower  gradient than that so far secured  by the American rood.    The* proposed line will cross the unaa-  taius at a higher elevation.    Goinjc  east from  Coquehalla summit,  a  maximum grade of one per cent. -  .has been  secured  all the way to  Penticton, at the foot of Okanagan  lake, a distance* of 130 miles.

The Grocer Was Struck Dead When He  Heard What Swell Places They Went  To���������Gels a Lesson In Hot and Cold  Air From the Janitor.  [Copyright.  By M. QUAD.  1009,   by   Associated   Literary  I "ress.)  'HELL, vims she all right nilt  Paradise Hats?" queried the  C'ei-iuaii grocer of tlie janitor  as the latter came into the  store and round him sorting over potatoes.  "We've been having great times down  (here this last week." was Ihe reply.  "Von don't mean somebody vlias  killed ?"  "Uh, no, It's jusl that our ladles  nr-0 returning from Newport. Long  I'l-aucli, Sai'iiloga and other fashion-  aide resoris. I tell yon they have done  I'ai-adlsi- Hals proud, and I feel so good  TUE l-T.A'lS HAVE UliEN UUZZING.  over it thai I've decided to haul some  of ihe rags utit of the windows and  put  in tlie glass."  "Vhas dor so: I like to hear about  it."  "Well, it began about the 1st of  August. The barber's wife went shopping one day and came home with a  new hat on. It was her second summer hat. She had struck n bargain  sale, bin any lady could see that her  purchase cost ar least .f^.oS."  ������������������"t.'nod hefens: Two hats in one summer.'" exclaimed rhe grocer as Uis  hands went up.  "That's II. .Mr. [lamrncrdinger. and  you can't imagine (lie consternation of  the oilier ladies. Yes. sir. the lady  came sailing in as cool ns you please  and paraded up ami down rhe bulls to  show die purchase off. She was bound  lo make die others feel bad. and there  was certainly gnashing of teetb. I'*or  about three days I looked for a row."  "Und don't some bloodshed conic?"  Tlie Counties Cets Even.  "No. It wns die Countess Darnito  who thought out a way to get even.  After diree or four days she sent for  me and asked how much it would cost  to rent a villa at Newport for a  month. I keeps myself posted on villas, and I told her a thousand dollars.  Rhe said she'd take one. Of course 1  spread the news through the flats, aud  the btizziug was like a hive of bees in  swarming time."  "But how can she pay one t'ousar.d  dollars mit eggs at 30 cents a dozen?"  was asked.  "Mr. [Iamrnerdinger. did you ever  hear of hot air?"  "Of course. If It vhas a hot day der  air vhas hot."  "Yes, aud the air can be hot od a  cold, day as well. The countess was  making a bluff, but it was a good one.  It wasn't twenty-four hours before the  Duchess of Derbyshire, as we call her,  whose husband is a night watchman,  comes to me to sweetly ask if I can  tell her the name of the best hotel at  Saratoga and if she can hire the second floor front for sis weeks. It's me  juty to keep posted on Saratoga hotels,  and I gives her the Information. It's  ?:'.000 she will have to pay, and the  tips to the Ice water boy will be a thousand more."  ".My soul! My soul!" groaned the  grocer.  Score One For Lady O'Sullivan.  "Of course 'I spread the news," continued the janitor, "aud then Lady  O'.Siillivan comes prancing up to me  and wants to know If there are any  hotels in Long Urn rich for sale at that  Reason of the year and what the cash  price Is. It's me July to know all  about Long* Brunch, aud so I men I Ions  a hotel at $:'0.000 on account of a  (loath in the family. Lady O'Sullivan  nays she'll take it and run It herself  and be die only summer boarder In It."  "But her husband drives some coal  cans, don't he?"  "Of course, but there's your hot air  again. Mr. [Iainnierdlnger, you really  ought to study up on the different sorts  of air. When a man Is driving a coal  cart at $7 a week that's cold air.  When his wife Is talking of Long  Branch that's hot air. Can't you see  the difference?"  '.'I believe I can. One vhas coal und  der odder vhas New Jersey."  "Kxii'-ll.**.   Well, Lady O'Sullivan held  the Joker for a day or two. and then  messenger boys began pouring la with  messages for the Princes'- Scutlro.  It's  her husband that has an i. > business  In a basement and sells c .(inks at 0  ..���������ciitH each.    She'd been keeping quiet  nnd giving the other ludlen rope, and  when the lime arrives she conies for-  M'urd and asks me to look around for a  stciiin yucht for utile and to bring her  u   map of the .Mt-dltei-rirrieiiir sea. as  ���������she desires to make a Hummer cruise."  ������������������I vims struck dead!" exclaimed the  grocer as he leaned against a can of  tomatoes.  Flatters Begin to Flit.  "That's because you've got hot nnd  cold air mixed again. When I Bprend  the Mleain yucht news around the mils  It iniiclc! the windows rattle, but tiro  other ooor ladles Irnd to swallow II unci  make the best of it. Here were our  four leading ladles pledged to take  summer vacations, and they must  make a slab at it or lose their prestige. They had 'bluffed and got themselves Into a box. Alt rhe, other tenants expected them to go, and 1 urged  'em on by saying I would putty up the  holes -in the walls while they were  gone.

So Lord "Rosebery once describ'd Sir  John Fisher, who has been made a  baron by the King. But nlthoifgh  Sir John Fisher is, like Lord Kitchener, a man of somewhat stern and  brusque nature, who, having set his-  mind on accomplishing a-thing, allows  nothing to stop him in his purpose,  there is no more simple ancl charming man than "Jackie," as the Tars  call him, in his moods of relaxing,  and he has shown a thousand times  what a good and even tendar heart  beats under a rough exterior. Ancl  tie can even display the qualities of a  bjrn courtier. When Queen Victoria  asked him to hi "very nice" to the  French Admiral Gervaia, who was  visiting Portsmouth, Sir John answered, "Madam, I'll Jciaa him if your Majesty wishes"; and he would have  done it, too.  don Answers. The early Koman accounts of ancient Britons do not particularly refer to this custom. But  that coal was used by our ancestors  at least 700 years ago we know irom  an existing state document, which  sets forth that JCing John granted "to  the honest men of Newcastle and to  their heirs the right to dig coles in  the neighboring Girth." So it must  have been regarded as a valuable right  even in those days.  It would seem that coal found its  way to London in some small quantities ut a period somewhat previous to  the year 1228. In any case, another  state document in existence, bearing  the date of that year, refers to a person located in "Sacoles Lane, without  Newgate," as one "who makes a habit  of burning a noxious fuel." In 1273  Sa-coles ������������������ sea-borne coal ��������� was proclaimed "prejudicial to human  health," and its burning was prohibited. State documents further show  that in 130G the gentry petitioned  against its use.  liy an act of 1331, however, in the  reign of Richaid II., we find that coal  wi'.s made a legal article of trade between Newcastle and London. But  the burning of coal for common purposes did not make much headway  until the reign of Charles I., 1G25.  We find, indeed, that so enlightened  a lady as Queen Elizabeth was "greatly grieved and annoyed with the taste  and 'smoake of secoolcs," and she forbade the burning of "stone-coole" during Sessions of Parliament, when she  was herself in residence in London.  Those were tho days when the punishment of hanging was accorded for  the most trivial offence, and thero is  un authontic record showing that a  man was thus punished in London  for disregarding the prohibition  .'ifiuinst burning coal at certain times.  Even as late as the seventeenth  ac.Jit'iry the opposition to the use of  coal was so strong that numerous petitions were presented to Parliament to  put clown the evil. These petitions  make very quaint reading, but lack of  space forbids any extracts from them.  As I have briefly shown, the word  "coal" has passed through a number  of forms before its present spelling  was decided upon. Even now, "Seaborne coal" is an expression in common use, differentiating between rail  and sea-carried coals.  I have referred to a state document  of 1228 which mentions "Sacoles  Lane, without Newgate." This lane���������  now Secoal Lane���������is still to be found,  being a narrow bvway off Farringdon  street, and abutting on the covered  duct which conveys the waters of the  Fleet stream into the Thames. Four  hundred yen.rs ago���������Henry VI1L���������  this miserable stream was a navigable  river far boyond where Holborn Viaduct now lies. Like all small tributaries, it gradually became dried up,  and what is now left of it sheds itself  through a narrow tunnel into the  Thames at Bhickfri������rs. However, in  the past days it had its wharfside markets and thoroughfares, and there is  no doubt that S'coal Lane takes its  name from an early traffic in coal.  Coal was first carried to London by  rail in 1845, when a small quantity  was so brought by the London and  Birmingham Railway���������now the London and Northwestern Railway. In  1850 onlv some 40,000 tons came to  London by rail against 3,500,000 by  sea. But gradually, during the next  fifty years, with the extension of the  railway systems throughout the country, the quantity carried came to exceed that brought by sea. To-day the  10,000,000 tons annuall- consumed are  about equally divided between rail  and sea. The advent of rail-borne  coal in London, altered the whole  course of business, and proved to be  a great public boon.   -  Turks and Coffee.

Mark Southern Tells How They Raised   Him   From  a   Bed  of Sickness,  t Cured His Kidney Disease and.  Made Him a Well  Man.  Skipton, Duck Lake, Sask.  (Special).���������After thirteen years suffering from Kidney Disease brought  on by an accident, Mark Southern, of  Hcshiker Farm near here, is a well  man, and he is not slow to state that  lu owes his cure to Dodd's Kidney  Pills.  "It began with pains in my back,"  Mr. Southern says, "and across my  loins, and of late years I became very-  weak and for days I had to keep to  my bed. I had all kinds of advice  and tried a great many medicines, bul  all to no purpose.  "Reading an advertisement induced  me to give Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial,  and I wrote for six boxes. After taking the first box I began to feel relief,  and after using five boxes I felt quite  well again. I am now able to get  about my work and feel no" effects  whatever from the old complaint."  Dodd's Kidney Pills clean all Kidney Diseases and all diseases resulting from disordered Kidneys right out  of the system. That's how they cure  Bright's Disease, Diabetes. Dropsy,  Rheumatism and Backache. They do  it^ by putting the Kidneys in good  working order and they always do it.  Wedding Breakfast Seventy Years Old  Found   In  Room.  The recent discovery, after the death  of a well-known man in the Midlands,  of a roomful of unopened parcels, the  accumulation of over forty yea'rs, recalls many a similar case in which  dead- men have left behind . them  some very remarkable and quite unexpected possessions.  When the effects of the Rev. Mr.  Hagemore, a Leicestershire clergyman, were examined after his decease,  the following singular assortment of  articles was found among them:  Thirty gowns and cassocks, one hundred pairs of , breeches, the same  number of boots, four hundred pairs  of shoes,' eighty wigs (though he  never wore a wig in his life), eighty  wagons and carts, eighty plows (not  one of which had been used), fifty  saddles, thirty wheelbarrows, . two  hundred pickaxes, two hundred  spades and shovels, seventy-four ladders, two hundred and forty-nine  razors, and several scores of walking-  slicks. -c  When George III. died no fower  than five hundred of his pocket-books  were found, each containing money;  there was a* large collection of women's hair, locks of all colors and  lengths, some' with the powder and  pomatum-still adhering to them; and  scores of pairs-of ladies gloves, each  pair, no doubt, with a romantic history of its own. "There were also,"  to quote Grevillc, "all the coats ho  had worn for fifty years, three hundred whips, canes without number,  every sort of uniform, and the costumes of all the orders in Europe."  Not long ago when a Yorkshire  lady, reputed to be well-to-do, died,  no trace whatever could be found of  the money she was supposed to possess. There wore, however, scattered  through almost every room of the  house, scores of tiny pincushions,  each of which was found on examination to contain a single diamond of  considerable value. The eccentric  old lady, fearful of losing her capital,  had invested every pound of it in  jewels, which she had placed for  safety in these innocent-looking receptacles.  Equally curious was the discovery  made after the death of Mr. Peter  Jackson, a North country bachelor,  who during his life had been noted  for the shabbiness ot his attire���������indeed, it was said that he had worn  the same suit, patched and repatched  until practically none of the original  cloth remained, for the last thirty-  years of his life. And yet, among his  possessions, were found sixty-three  complete suits of good material and  fashionable cut, not one' of which  showed any signs of having been  worn.  Equally strange is the story told  of Miss Elizabeth Howard, a West-  country lady, who died early last  century at the great age of ninety  six. Miss Howard had in her early  womanhood boen engaged to a youn-r  squire, who had been thrown from  his horse and killed on the very  morning of his wedding-day. When  Miss Howard died there .was found  in a room, which had never since  been opened, a table spread for the  feast which had been prepared for  her wedding more .than seventy years  before. t .

In certain English public houses  there are boxes on the bar counters  which have a curious use. -  .These are called swearing boxes, into which customers betrayed into the  use of bad language are required to  drop a.coin.  In one hostelry ��������� which shall be  nameless���������there is a swearing box of  this sort; but the peculiarity of the  public house in question is that it is  largely patronized by women. They  are employed at an adjacent factory.  One would imagine that among women a swearing box would be an unnecessary article of furniture. But rn  this "case it is in frequent use.  Perhaps the work in" this factor}  leads to violence of language, but  whatever the reason'may"'be, it is a  matter of fact that the box is not lei*  empty. Indeed, the women make so  many "slips of the tongue" that the  box is filled not once only, but many  times,, so that considerable funds hav..'  been accumulated. What is the exact  figure of the" money obtained "by this  bad language box has not yet: been  recorded, but that it is a large amount  will be realized when it "is stated that  on a slack Monday in the late autumn  forty women had a day's outing on a  four-horse brake, the expenses being  paid for entirely by this means.

In a Pennsylvania town, where the  Friends abound, a prim old Quaker  spinster recently ; attended the marriage of her grand-nephew, a young  person who had in the course of his  twenty-one years received much discipline at her hands.  The old lady was at her best on  this festive occasion, and, at a pause  in the wedding-breakfast, the happy  bridegroom looked over at her with  a beguiling'smile.  "Tell us why thee never nicrried,  Aunt Patience?" he said, teasingly.  "That is soon told,' William," said  the old Quakeress, ��������� calmly. "It was  because I was not as easily pleased  as thy wife was."���������Circle. -  The Man Who Came to Be an Author*  ity on Card Games.  Who was Hoyle, and why should  his name be UBed as a sort of guarantee of correctness *bo that it admits  of no doubt or'question? asks a writer  in Munsey's, who goes on to answer  the question.  Edmund Hoyle was  man, born near -Halifax in the year  1672. Nearly 150 years before his birth  there had been invented" a game of  cards which -was originally called  ''triumph." Its early history is obscure, as is the case with nearly all  games at cards,' but it was almost  certainly English in its English game.  The -name was gradually shortened  into "trump," and Shakespeare puns  upon it in "Antony and- Cleopatra."  s "Trump" became very popular,  but aguin the name was changed���������  it is not known precisely when���������to  /'whisk,'* and later still to "whist,"  'the word "trump" being retained to  denote a curd of the leading suit.  Differences at play often led to violent disputes and sometimes even to  duels, and it was left for Hoyle to establish all the points of the game  ' with real authority.  Hoyle was of good family and was  cducuted to be a barrister. Hio mind  was essentially a logal mind���������keen,  judicious and logical. Living in  Lorrdon, he bocame greatly interested  in the game of whist ancl gave to it  the same thought and' care which ho  would havo given to an important  case in court. Every evening he met  with a regular company of whist players at the Crown coffee house in Bedford row, where some of the deepest  players and most distinguished men  about  town used to gather.  Hoylo's acumen and the serious  thought which he had given to tho  game ,made his opinion on any disputed point absolutely final. . His  name was noised abroad throughout  London, and a great many people  used to come to hirn, begging him to  give them lessons in whist. Finally,  for the use of his pupils; he wrote a  book, which he called "A- Short Treatise on Whist," in .which was embodied his notion of the correct way of  playing the game. .*  Hoyle continued to give instruction in whist, and he also wrote- books  relating to other games at cards. The  rules that he laid down were accepted  by everyone, so that when any dispute arose it was always decided "according to Hoyle."- He lived to be 97  years of age, dying in 1769.  BODY   COVERED   WITH    ECZEMA  Yet Zam-Buk Cured  Him  of   Wellington  Mr. A. M. Brooks,  St., Steelton, says:  "Ten months ago I contracted eczema, which at first appeared on my  neck, later spreading to my chest and  body. The doctor thought this was  caused by the irritation of my .shut  an English- [ collar and the poison and steam from  the pulp, as I was then employed at  tho Pu'ii.Mill. I began doctoring, but  instead of the disease being checked  it showed signs of becoming worue;  ancl my nock, chest, and my whole  body was soon in a frightful condition.

"Now, dear," said mamma as they  stood on the doorstep, "remember  that you are not to' ask'for anything."  "Yes, mamma," answered the  small boy.  "I have been busy almost all the  morning making crullers," said the  friend as she entered the room and  greeted them. A beatific expression  spread over the small boy's face.  "I like to hear you talk about  crullers," he said, with a smile of  more than childlike innocence. "  "Why, are you fond of them?"  asked tho mamma's'-friend in a pleased tone.

The Bachelor and the Plasters  Mr. Grubb, an elderly bachelor, having boen troublcVl for a week or two  with a pain in his back, went to his  doctor. The physician, who was just  starting to see a patient, prescribed  two large porous plasters, and told  him to call again in about u fortnight nnd report.  Mr. Grubb complied with directions.  He went to u chemist's and bought  the plasters, and Iffter a prolonged  struggle with them in hisv own room,  succeeded in getting them "properly in  place. Being a very small man, however, the two nearly covered his whole  back. At the end of two weeks he  called at the physician's office again.  "Well, how is your back?" asked the  medical man.  "Sound as a drum. Hasn't pained  me any for ten days or more."  "Glad to hear it. You may take the  plasters off whenever you please."  "Not much!" exclaimed Mr. Grubb,  removing his coat and vest, taking off  his collar, and locking the door of the  doctor's office. "I won't touch 'em.  They're bigger than I am. What I  want you to do now, doctor, is to pull  me off the plasters."  The average wife spends fully two-  thirds of her time in worrying about  what to get for the next meal.

Perhaps the strangest door knocker  in the world may be seen in the pagan  Indian village ut Bella Coola, ubout  half way up the coast of British Columbia.  It consists of a wooden carving representing a man. The arms are rnov-  able, and between the hands is held  a knocker apparently bo formed as  to represent the stone hammer the  Bella Coolus used generations ago.  Across the knees is a board, like purl  oi the wooden' drum these Indians  formerly used much more extensively  than to-duy. When the arms are rained the -hummerlike knocker may bu  dropped so as to make a terrific  knocicing on the board.  This ligure, instead of being fastened on the door of the house, stands  above it, but the doorway is low and  the knocker is easily reached. Above  the door is an interesting inscription,  the pride of his family. - This ' hu--  been put up in honor of one of his  ancestors and it reads:  "In memory of (Jnioi Clelamen who  died July, ldl)3, aged 50 years. He was  honest and well disposed, and respected by both whites and Indians. Jn  Doci-inb.-r '92 he gave away with the  help of his .-oris Alexander and Johnny, properly in blankets, canoes, etc.,  valued ut 4,000 dollurs this being his  eighth large potlutch and feast that  he hud held." '  This sign is painted and was appar-  ently made by a white man, but the  wording und the arrangement of the  lines show that the work was done to  order.  The reference to the giving away ol  ��������� blankets and canoes is characteristic  of these people. By so doing they  gained not only a aristocratic position  in the tiibe but also credit, for the  property was always returned with interest and feasting in due course ot  lime.  At first this latter fact was not understood by tho missionaries and Indian agents, who supposed Unit the  potlutch was a boastful wasting of  property. They caused a law to b^  passed 'in British Columbia making rt  a criminal offence to give a potlutch,  and many Indians have been imprisoned for disobeying the law by continuing their forefathers' methods ol  linuncial investment, but nowadays  Lhe law is no longer enforced.  Sometimes property was given away  for the benefit of sons or daughters.  When they became a certain age they  had irr consequence an aristocratic  position and credit, of which they were  so proud as are the sons of families  of social' position in London or elsewhere. This class of potlutch may bj  likened to endowment insurance.  Occasionally property was given  away where no return was expected.  It was then mostly food, with a few  dresses, bracelets and similar articles,  just as white swells give dinners with  favor, souvenirs and birthday or wedding presents. Such giving away the  Indians of the- whole coast cull a  cultus potlutch, cultus meaning useless and indicating that no investment  has been made or return expected.  Potlatches of one kind or the other,  according to the proprieties of the oc-  'cf-sion, are given at christenings, wed-  uings or when neighboring tribes are  brought  together.

"Get into the box," called out one  of tlie constables after hirn. Thc juror  walked half the length of the room  till he reached the prisoner's dock,  when he stopped, opened the gate and  walked in and seated himself. There  was u laugh at the expense of the  juryman, but Judge MacMahon whispered to one of the officials to scrutinize the identity of the man. It was  soon discovered that he was an old  hand in court, having boen three times  convicted of offences. Ho followed his  natural instinct in hustling" into the  box when spoken to sharply.  Flags of War.  There has just been deposited in  the uichives department u number ot  Hugs which good Canadians will revere. They were borne by loyal men  in the war of 181'^, and, blood-bkismeur-  ed and bullet-torn, arc hanging on the  walls of the new building, set aside  as sacred to Canadian history.  Tlie flags are those of the 4th und  5th Regiments of the incorporated  militia of Upper Canada, the 100th  Artillery, the Royal Emigrants, the  1st Cunudian Regiment, the Quebec  rnilitiu of 1775, und the Royul Engineers.  The flags of the 1st Regiment, the  4th Regiment, und the Quebec Militia  ure bauly tattered und torn and indicate the severity of their engagements.  The two flags of the Royal Emigrants are curious. They are homemade, woven on small worsted square  made, woven on small worsted  squares, with poles of lances. All. of  the flags were given to Dr. Doughty's  care by the Militia Department.  A Venturesome Countess.  The Countess of Minto, who, with  her husband, narrowly escaped being  killed by a bomb-thrower in India, has  had several exciting adventures. Once  she journeyed with her husband.'from  Ottawa to Montreal in Canadian canoes and camped out at night, while  on another occasion she startled Can-  udu by riding on the cowcatcher of  u locomotive in far-away Klondike,  and seated on this dungerous perch,  took a number of snapshots of the  quickly-flying scenery. On another occasion' the wing of tlie house in' which  she wus sleeping caught fire, and she  was only rescued in the nick of time  bv" her husband.  PILES CURED IN 6 to ,14 DAYS .

That the corning season will be  the greatest fruit year that British  Columbia has ever seen, is the  opiuion of W. E. Scott, deputy  minister of agriculture. Last year  there was a poor crop, not only in  British Columbia, but in all the'  Pacific States.  Now, however, all   the trees arc-  loaded   with   fruit  spurs,   and   if  nothing happens to upset their calculations,   it  is   stated by all who      The only reason why we don't seo'the  have  been   through   the   orchards face of truth everywhere is bacause we  that the crop will he a bumper one ! live too low down  " It is no trouble to raise fruit,  in Biitish Columbia," said Mr.  Scott. -'This has h.-en demonstrated beyond all cavil, but the  question of marketing is still an  op-n one ancl requires handling  with (he greatest care.  " I expect a very great influx of  people into the province this year.  A large number will take up fruit  growing, but there are {jalso many  coming who will engage in poultry  raising, dairying, mixed farming  and other industries. I expect to  see a very large number as soon as  spring opens.  The Okanagan ancl Kootenay  districts have taken the lead in the  matter of fruit growing. They  built up the district largely thiough  peisistent advertising.

They  had never shot anything, these  dealers, but;.craps and patrons,  and thev were nervous and not exactly up.to wliat they were to do.  They went to. a bunting hut in  the Illinois river and were told  they were to rise early iu the morning aud go out after the ducks.  They were so excited they'couldn't  sleep,' and about midnight one of  them went out in frout of the hut  ancl saw a large number of wooden  decoy ducks floating in the water.  He rushed :back, got his gun and  began firing at the decoys.  His companion,  startled by .the  sound,  came   ont ,and   took  '*ne-  lootc,   then .he  screamed. '' S' >: ���������  it!

Hodges has resigned  his position as manager of the  Granhy f-inelter to take charge of a  smelter in Pern, it is said at a  salary of $50,000 a year.  On April 1st Mr. Hodges will become general manager of the highest smelter iu the world and the  largest in South America, when he  assumes charge of the Cerro de  Pasco Mining Co's mines and reduction works���������the elevation being  14,300 feet above the sea level.  The mines and smelter'are located  in the Andes range of mountains,  about 140 miles from Lima, Peru,  the production being copper, with  some silver. The copper runs from  G to S per cent to the ton of ore,  and the four blast furnaces and five  reverberators reduce from 1,200 to  1,300 tons of oro daily, the annual  output of blister copper being in  excess of 3-3.000 pounds, which is  being steadily increased. The  company owns also its own coal  mines and coke ovens, has about  5,000 employees, cwiis its own  branch railway of some 75 miles  with its complete equipment, in-  oltiding a private coach for the  general manager and family. ,  Leads in Copper. '  Tlie United States continues by  a large margin to lead the world in  the production of copper. Again  more than half of tho copper produced during the current year has  come from the miuos of half a  dozen states and the territory of  Alaska. Tho potential ontput such  as responds to any degree of rise in  the market price of the .raetal is  very much greater. The lower  prices of the past. year have reduced the total market value of  the-product on hand, but has not  appreciably diminished the tonnage.  A notable decrease in^the cost of  operating mines has taken place.  This is accounted for by improved  method?, due to training in the  Sfienlific i-tinly of the profession,  assifted by the United'State's geological Hiit-vey, and.by the employment of skilled labor.
