A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that the editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  THE LUCERNE  at  In  his recent   great   speech  Victoria Premier McBride said:  "I  want to congratulate my  old   friend   and   associate,   the  member for Kaslo (Mr. McKay)  ou this splendid accomplishment.  Kaslo has for all of us an attraction  all its own.    I have heard  my  friend  from   Kaslo describe  tho principle town of the district  as the Lucerne of British Columbia.,   Without any question, as  you see the beautiful little town  nestling at the foot of the lake  with such  wonderful  surroundings, that marvelous  stretch of  water in front, and with a background of picturesque .mountain  tops,   and ' stretch  on stretch of  wonderful   bench  lands,  surely  here  is  tho  setting  for  a com-  Jjjjmunity  easily to be entitled to  the name, the Lucerne of British Columbia."  Thus we see that anything good  is liable to be stolen or imitated. I  electric light business, and also  tend to nip the claws of the Standard Oil Co.  Never before in its history has  this province had so many would-  be Tory candidates. They are  springing up everywhere like  mushrooms in the dark, which  | proves that nothing succeeds like  success.  Ix the early days Noah must  have beeu a great poker player.  Although he was on the water  wagon for a long time he could always reach under the table, and  got any kind of a pair he wanted.  If your business will not bear  advertising, it is not worth keeping, and the sooner you close it up  the better for yourself and the  community.  Ouit friend Bertram remarks that  some_ day abdication will take  place, and the Austrian flag fly  over Anaconda.  It i.s nearly 20 years ago since  we  christened  New  Denver  the  Lucerne,   owing  to  the  fact  that it  strongly resembles a town on lake  Lucerne in Switzerland.    Since we  departed   from    the   Slocan   that  beauty   spot,   New   Denver,   has  had no one to defend its claim to  that title, and the poetical people  of Kaslo havo picked  it up,   along  with   government   pap,   and anything else they could  annex with  safety.    Both towns need no paint,  and they might easily be called the  Twin Lucernes.   They are beauty  spots,     restful   to    the eye   and  soothing to the nerves.    Just the  kind of towns that should produce  great poets, artists, and painters.  They are full of food  for the imagination,   and   that,   with   some  bacon and beans on the side makes  a fine diet for those whose sonls  are deeply   laden  with   thoughts  that should be woven into poetry  or pictures.    We   moved  out   of  the Slocan  when the beans   and  bacon faded out of the formation  having  learned by experience that  man cannot live alone upon ozone  and scenic effects.    We are now in  a second  Butte  where tenderloin  steaks stare you   in   tho  face at  every turn, and champagne corks  fly at the moon; but once in awhile  we  long for tho grandly  magnificent scenes of the silvery Slocan,  for like that chap in Ireland, ������������������with  all thy faults we love you still."  At tho provincial elections this  month there will be two Socialists,  three Liberals and 37 Conservatives elected.  One  spring,  robin  does   not   make   a  nor ono swallow paint a  town red.  Up to the 28th of this month  booze will practically be on the  free list.  Feak, custom and superstition  aro difficult to eradicate. We Btill  kiss tho book when taking an oath  in court. Perhaps more men would  tell the truth if they had to kiss a  pretty women, instead of tbe  Bible.    Try it. -  .In three thousand years from  now the days will be a year long.  It is thought that this will seriously  affect the stock of companies in the' cease to believe there is any good-  - Thinking Themes  Doing clears the mind.    Physical  activity has a peculiar  luminous  effect upon the judgement.   The  soundest views of life comes not  from the pulpit or the professional  chair but from the workshop.    To  saw a plank or nail down a shingle,  to lay a stone square or paint a  house evenly, to run a locomotive  or raise a good  crop of corn, reacts upon the intelligence, reaching  the very inward  essential cell of  wisdom; provided always the worker is brave, not afraid of his own  conclusions, and does uot hand his  thinking over to some guesser with  a largo blaff.    Doing makes religion.    All tho religion that is of any  account is what we thresh out with  our own hands, suffer out with our  own visions.    Doing creates faith.  Doubt comes from Sundays,  and  other idle hours.    The only people  who  believe   the   ten commandments are   those   who do  them.  Those  who believe the world is  growing better | are they that are  trying to make it grow better. Doing brings joy.    The sweetest of  joys is the joy of accomplishment.  Make love and you will feel Jove.  Quit   making  love and you   will  doubt Jove.    Be kind, steadily and  persistently, and you. will believe  in kindness.    Be unclean and you  will soon sueer at anybody's claim  to virtue.    Bo mean and you  will  Jackson's Speech  Mr. Jackson continuing the debate, remarked that little had been  heard in the past as to tho horticultural and agricultural possibilities of the district which he has the  honor to- represent. This might  be accounted for by renson of the  Kettle Eiver Valley railway to tho  Coast, however, the Greenwood  district would be brought into  direct contact with both tho east  and    the    west,    thus    insuring  f  through travel which must of  necessity exert a direct and beneficial influence on settlement and  development.       \  "I can assure you, Mr. Speaker," he pursued, "that notwithstanding the difficulties under  which we havo labored, development has taken place with us, aud  we have in our district a large  area planted in fruit, and at no  distant date we hope and expect to  rival tho famous Creston Valley,  so much spoken of by my - friend  the member for Ymir.  "I congratulate the premier and  the government upon their success  in securing for the people of the  Interior something that has long  been required, in the construction  of a road giving direct connection  with the coast'. . In this connection  I wish also to thank the first minister for his assurances last evening  in reference to the liquidation of  unpaid claims against the old Midway & Vernon line.  "While    conditions   in   mining  have not been of the best during  recent months,   by reason  of the  late troubies iu the coal fields,  yet  it is with pride  that T  am able to  say that the mines and smelters in  the district I represent continued  to operate, despite their difficulties  and I anticipate that with the conditions at present prevailing in the  coal fields, we may look with confidence for an early revival  of  the  mining industry."  Mr. Jackson closed with graceful compliments to the finance  minister upon his excellent budget  speech and to the minister of works  upon the generous manner in  which he had treated the constituency of Greenwood.  The Creed of the Future  In courts of law the phrase, "I  believe," has no standing. Never  a witness gives testimony but that  he is cautioned thus, "Tell us  what you know, not what you believe."  The trouble with theology is that  "belief" has always been considered   of greater importance than  knowledge, and this in spite of the  fact that, almost without exception,  "belief" is a legacy,   an  importation, something borrowed, an echo  ���������yes, often  an  echo of an echo.  Tho Creed of the Future will bo-  gin, "I know,"  not, "I believe."  And this creed will uot be forced  upon people.    It will carry with it  no    coercion,   no   blackmail,   no  promise of an eternal life of idleness and case if you accept it, and  no threat of Hell if you don't.  It will have no paid, professional  priesthood, claiming honors, rebates and exemptions, nor will it  hold estates free from taxation. It  will not organize itself into a system, marry itself to the State, and  call on the police for support.- It-  will be reasonable, so in the line of  self preservation that no sane man  or woman will reject it, and when  we really begin to live it, we will  cease to talk about it.  As a suggestion and first rough  draft of tho Creed of the Future, I  submit this.  I KNOW: that I am here.  In a world where nothing is permanent but change;  And that in degree I,  myself,  can change the form of things.  And iufluence a few people;  And  that  I am  influenced  by  these and other people;'  That I,am influenced by the  example and by the work of men  who no longer are alive,  And' that" the work I now do  will in degree influence people who  may live after my life has changed  into other forms;  That a certain attitude of mind  and habit of action on my part  will add to the peace, happiness  and well-being of other people, .  And that a different thought an  action on my part will bring pain  and discord to others;  That if I would secure reasonable happiness for myself, 1 must  give out good-will to others;  That to better my own condition  I must practise co-operation and  mutality;  That bodily health is necessary  to continued and effective work;  That   I   am  largely ruled   by  habit;  That habit is a form of exercise;  That up to a certain  point,  exercise means increased strength  or  ease in effort;  That all life is an expression of  spirit;  That my spirit influences my  body,"  And my body influences my  spirit;  That the universe to me is very  beautiful, and everything and  everybody in it good and beautiful,  when mybody and my spirit are  in harmonious mood;  That my thoughts are hopeful  and helpful unless I am filled with  fear,  And that to eliminate fear, my  life must be dedicated to useful  work���������work in which I forget myself.  That fresh air in abundance, and  moderate, systematic exercise in  the open air, are the part of wisdom ;  That I can't afford, for my own  sake, to be resentful nor quick to  take offense:  That happiness is a great power  for good,  And that happiness is not possible without moderation and  equanimity;  That time turns all discords into  harmony if men will but be kind  and patient,  And that the reward  which life  holds out for work is not idleness,  rest, rust and ease,  bnt increased  capacity for work. Greater Difficul  ties, More Work;  And that wisdom consists in al  ternating work  with play���������changing my work so that all   work will  be pleasurable.���������Hubbard  not, have what you claim, and  know it. If you have, however,  how much better it would be for  your friends and associates, if you  would get busy, even, though you  do not make more than good wages.  With development your mine, your  prospects might -develop into a  bonanza. . .��������� '  If yon have a mine injwhich you  have exposed quite a tonnage of  low grade milling ore, ore that will  plate 820 or $30, why don't you  put in a two or three stamp mill  and take out this gold? ��������� If you  could make only $5 or $10 a day,  it would be better than to spend  your time in town, squandering  what little money you have, aud  bewailing hard times.- Get busy;  you can get some one to help you  if you have the real stuff, if you  really have what you claim.  The great trouble is that small  mine-owners have big ideas.   They  want to form a big company on a  small mine. They want a 10-stamp  mill on a property which,  just at  present cannot output more than  five or ten tons of .ore a day;  and  so they let the time drag on when,  if fully  alive to their opportunities,  they could soon place themselves    in     comfortable   circumstances.   Even   a   tenderfoot,    if  given the chance,   would jump at  opportunity to   begin   shipments  from tho silver-lead mine you have  so long ignored;   and the  "hay-  shoveler," so long abused and maligned, would not fail to take advantage of the foot or so of good  milling gold ore if coming to his  notice.    In   some- instances   the  ranchers in    the   valleys  put   to  shame the veteran miner who has  more good prospects than  he can  well look   after,   but who never  makes a shipment of' oro or who  never thinks of putting in a little  mill for the treatment of his  gold  ore when he can realize handsomely  in either case.���������Salt Lake Mining  Eeview. ���������  W.

Why Not Get Busy  If you have a mine or prospect  in which a foot or two of payable  ore is exposed, ore that will return  a profit after paying mining, transportation and smelter charges and  costs; why don't you ship?   Yon  say you would like to, but that you  lack the means to carry on mining  operations   until  returns are received    from    ore   consignments.  This may be true, still your credit  is good.   If you have the ore there  is not a merchant in your town or  camp but who will  "carry" you  until yon receive your check from  the ore-buyer or smelter; and almost any teamster will trust yoq  until you have received settlement  for your  shipments.   Isn't  it  a  fact that you are lacking in  backbone;   or that,  if the facts were  known, you are not overly fond of  work, and prefer hanging around  the camp doing nothing when,   if  yon would  get  into action   you  could make a good  living  from  your little mine, that prospect in  which, you claim, you havo quite  a little tonnage of good shipping  ore?

Complete ,Evaporation  Would Leave  ' nn Immense Deposit of Salt Two  ���������r      Hundred   and   Thirty   Feet  ''" ��������� Thick.  Oceans occupy three-fourths of the  earth's surface. At the' depth of 3,500  feet waves are,not,felt. The temperature's th'e same, varying only a trifle  from, the" pole's to the burning sun of  the equator. A mile down the water  has a pressure of a ton on every  square inch. If a box six feet deep  .were filled with 'salt water and allowed to evaporate, there would be  two inches of salt left on tlie bottom  of the box. Taking tlie average depth  of the oceans of the world to be three  miles, there would be a layer of salt  230 feet thick over the entire bed  should - ,the water evaporate. -The  water of the ocean is colder at the  bottom than'a-i the surface. In many  places especially .in the bays^on the  coast of Norway, the water freezes at  the bottom before It does 'above.  Waves .are very deceptive. To look  at their? In a storm one would think  that* the whole'water travelled. The  water stays .in the same place, but tbe  motion goes on. Sometimes in storms  these waves are forty 'feet high and  travel fifty miles per hour ��������� nearly  twice as fast as the fleetest steamship. The base'bf.a wave ���������- the distance from valley to valley on either  side at the bottom ��������� is generally  reckoned at being 15 times the height,  therefore an average wave, say one  25 "feet high, has a base extending  over 275, feet. The force of waves  breaking on the'shore is said to be  17 toms to the square yard,   -r-  Be Good Winter Traffic  No-better evidence of the increased  Western traffic is needed than the  statement that this year certain "rail  road services which in former winters  have always been dropped, are this  'year toeing retained, and in some  ca-ses added to. A leading official  states that this year the Canadian  Pacific Railway intends to run its St.  Paul-Seattle through trains, all winter  whereas ln former winters this  through service was always dropped.  The' sou-roe of the Increased traffio  between these two ->c:nts Is attributed*  to "the growing interest in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. For the last  five or six years tourists from the  United States have been literally  pouring Into Canada through C. P. R.  connections at St. Paul and Seattle  the greater number having the Rocky  Mountains and the resorts at Banff  Field, Emerald Lake and Glacier, as  their destination.  Old " Before1   the ' Christiau   Dawn,  Tripoli'Hus'Seen'. Many Changos,  But Alwnys the Arab   ���������  Bemalned.  1 **���������        i *���������  Grown ��������� old * before Christianity began, Tripoli, has seen Norman,  Spaniard, and Maltese Knight come  and go again," il-eaving always the  Arab and.the Berber still in possession. ���������* Is -the , old v granary of  Carthage to become at..this late date  the granary of the old rival Rome?  Who knows? For though the Turk  may go, there atlll remain the Arab  and the Berber, a factor, not to be  despised.     .       j' ~  *���������  , Viewed from-the anchorage In the  bay,-a'full half-mileJrom the shore,  Tripoli la a delight to the eye. -The  white walls of the houses, the slender  minarets.'of the mosques, the whole  town ln'a setting of palm trees and  green olives, in- the foreground the  deep-blue "water of the bay, and a  dazzling sunshine -bathing all, the  picture is not easily forgotten.  Although closer; acquaintance with  Tripoli tones down very "considerably  the picture as seen from the sea and  introduces one to an assortment of  smells that can be neither, localised  nor. diagnosed, yet- withal it Is wonderfully attractive. There the Moslem  Is at home ��������� the Moslem as devoted  to hs religion* as he was in the days  of the Crusaders. No Christian dog  may enter his Mosque, nor "Saint's"  tomb, nor stand In a sacred cemetery  beside the graves of "The Faithful."  Because-It is a'principal portal of the  Sahara and the centre of a once very  rich caravan trade,' one findB converging here an unparalleled mixture  of nationalities. Tall, broad-shouldered, finely-featured Arabs, Berbers,"  'desert Bedouins, Moors, Turks, full-  blooded negroes whose fathers died  here In. slavery, all pass and repass  in the narrow streets. Tho Jew, too,  settled' here since the days of  Carthage, has his'ghetto at the western side of the town; an intricate  maze of narrow, uhpaved,'dirty, evil-  smelllng streets, unlovely by day and  unllghted by night.  Electrocuted Eggs  It is possible that the peculiar tasta  of a cold storage egg, which is something not easy to mistake, may be  removed if experiments now bolng  made by an electrical company are  successful. It 1b claimed that when  fresh eggs are -placed In cold storage  the eggs are alive: that they are slowly frozen to death, and that in spite  of the preservation qualities of the  ice the eggs do not taste good when  cooked. It Is now believed that by  electrocuting the eggs the natural  fresh* taste may be retained and not  removed when the eggs are placed In  cold storage. The eggs are "killed"  by placing a metal cap on each end  of the egg and then pasisng through  them a current of 600 volts.  , On -Taking n Holiday  A great many .people lead just as  strenuous a life while on their holidays as they-are-accustomed to do  during the working-year'with the result, of course, that iney are very  Httle better -for -tlie , fortnight's  change. They overlook their need for  rest ln the desire to -participate In all  the amusements and 'distractions * offered to them. The young people are  so" anxious not to lose a moment of  the time so wholly their own that  they count themselves unfortunate to  have a vacant hour in the day's programme. But for the .middle-aged the  holiday should not be of this  strenuous order if It is to do any lasting good. Excess must be avoided  none the less'when the ordinary life  is rather sedentary than otherwise.  It is a big mistake for a "man ot  woman to think that because he or  she generally spends the best part  of the day in a chair at a 'desk,- the  one precious fortnight ought to find  them -perpetually on their feet, or  even Indulging in the most violent  exercise. Under the*belief that they  are getting their muscles into good  order.they are putting a severe strain  on the heart that has- been long accustomed to very gentle movement  only. The best thing for- these people  Is to take a couple of-days' entire  rest, and then to begin gradually with  walking exercise or the like. This  moderation will enable -the holiday-  maker to enjoy every hour, and to  undertake ln the end considerable  exertion with real benefit to his whole  system.   ���������  He Wasn't Encouraging  "Concede nothing," was the advice-  of a well-known politician concerning a certain famous disputed election. His policy was followed to the  letter by the man of whom the following is told:���������  On the .relief train that had been  rushed to the scene of the railway  wreck was a newspaper reporter. The  first victim he saw was a man whose  eyes were blackened and whoso left  1 arm was in a sling. With his hair  ' full of dirt, one end of his shirt collar  flying loose and his coat ripped up  the back, the victim was sitting on  the grass and serenely contemplating  the landscape.  "How many people are hurt?" asked the reporter, hurrying up to him.  "I haven't heard of anybody being  hurt, young man," said the other.  "How did this wreck happen?"  "I haven't heard of any wreck."  "You haven't? Who are you, anyhow?"  "I don't know that it's any of your  business, but I'm the -claim agent of  the road."  ARN0TT & IIINE  Proprietors  Geologic Work of Ants.  The immense importance of ��������� ants  as geologic agents, especially in  tropical regions Is being recognised.  Ant burrows have been found at a  depth of four yards, and they ramify  over vast areas. The geologic work  performed by earthworms has long  been recognised, but Prof. Brannor  believes that the ants and termites  of the tropics bring a greater amount  of earth to the surface than do tho  earthworms of the temperate zones,  and are In many ways an equally important factor ln the changes that  are going on in tho upper strata of  the ground.  What's In a "Name? *  There Is a bandit chief In Morocco  named G-llulli. He claims as his ancestor an Irishman of the name of  Gllhooly, who was caught and enslaved by Arab freebooters some two  or 'three hundred years ago. Of course  Gilulli is agin the government of Morocco,  World's Costliest  Who keeps the costliest kitchen in  the world ? Not, as one might imagine  the American millionaire, but the  Shah of Persia. The utensils, fittings, and furnishings of the Shah  are said to be worth $2,650,000. Every  saucepan is gilded Inside, and the  dishes appearing on his table are  of solid gold, as well as the spoons,  knives; and forks, tlie (handles of  which are besides ornamented with  precious stones.

Our Sovereign's Long Pedigree  There are few people who can boast  bo ancient a genealogy as our King  and Queen, who trace their descent  in unbroken lino from thc Saxon  King Egbert, and through him back  to the British klngs.who ln turn were  reputed lineally descended from the  survivors of the fall of Troy.  It Is stated that plans are on foot  to build a line from GIbHon, N.B., to  Mlnto, 33 miles, to provide a connection between the Canadian Pacific  and the Grand Lake coal fields, as  well as an outlet to tlio West for the  coal.  LAND OF ItEVOLCTIONS  Moro  Rebellions  Have  Taken  Place  in China than in. any other  Country ou Record.  There are probably more revolts  rebellions and revolutions recorded in  the annals, of China than .can be resurrected'from the'histories of all the  nations of the west. This is partly  because Chinese annal-s of an authentic character go back much further than western annals and partly  because the .Chinese, inoffensive and  docile though they seem, are predisposed to insurrection.  ' The tendency has persisted since  the first of the eighteen emperors  of the Ilia dynasty mounted his  throne away back in the dim mists  of antiquity, when the early Pharaohs  were building their temples by the  Nile'and erecting their pyramids in  the  desert.  The HiV dynasty Issued from 2205  to 17G6 B.C, when it was'overturned  by the Shang, or Yin, dynasty, an  equally active race,-which ruled until  1122 years before the Christian era.  Disaster overtook the' Shang Emperors at last, from a rising of the  people under the banners of Chou,  although Rome had not been built  and the Greeks were still scattered  tribes when they gave way to the  princes of the Chou line. A protracted  period * of unrest followed.  In many respects the greatest of aill  the Ohinese Emperors, Kubla Khan  began his reign in 1257, and held the  throne until his death in 1294. In  these years the nation was more Illustrious and powerful than ever before. A succession of -Mongol emperors followed Kubla Khan, prln-  -cipaily remembered for their sanction  of -the Introduction of Christianity.  In 1368 the 'Ming dynasty was proclaimed upon the ashes of the political  structure built up by the warlike  Mongols, and it ruled successfully  until the Manchus of thc North, tho  fierce; well-built hill Chinese, swept  down upon Peking and installed their  own .princes in 1651.  Ihe*. Manchus have never been  numerous, and although they have  managed to keep their saddles by dint  of cowing the peoples under them,  they have been unable to preserve  absolute' order and tranquillity. One  of the first steps they took to impress their sovereignty upon the  country was the publication of .an  edict compelling the people to adopt  the pig-tail. The Manchus were  horsemen, and the pig-tail was prescribed as a national institution because, the Manchus contemptuously  said, the Chinese were of the same  status as their horses.  Rebellion after rebellion marked  the troubled -reigns of the Manchu  Emperors", and in most cases the germ  of revolt was first in evidence in one  or other of the three provinces that  are causing trouble to-day. Szhe  Chuen, Hu-peh, and Hu-nan have always been centres of discord.  Most Remarkable Piano.  An artist, Jan van Beers, designed  a piano of a" magnificent nature. The  body is of natural wood, the legs and  ornaments being of bronze, chiselled  and gilded by the most expert artiste  in bronze work that could be found  in Paris. Set into the front and sides  aTO five Van. Beers paintings, depicting the'four seasons and a minuet  scene ln the time of Louis Qulnze.  Small ivory plaques line the cover.  But the most remarkable instrument  ln the world la, that known as the  "Napoleon piano." It was built ia  1808 by the famous nouse-of Erard  to the order of the Emperor. Its  keys are of mother-o'-pearl and  tortoiseshell, the case Is of rosewood,  and there are five pedals, working  drum, cymbal and triangle attachments. It was a present given by  Napoleon to Josephine, and many  years later the Empress Eugenie took  great delight ln playing upon it. When  the Tulleries were sacked the piano  was stolen; It was eventually recovered and put up to auction, when it  was bought by a representative of the  firm who originally built the instrument.  Nervousness in Children  Nervousness takes' many forms, and  parents should be on the" look-out for  any signs of it in a growing boy or  girl. For It usually indicates that-  something is wrong ��������� the child's  work or play, or companions, or food,  or general health. To trace it to its  ���������real source sometimes needs both  great tact and much firmness on the  mother's part, but no trouble must be  spared to remove the cause, as excessive nervousness in childhood may,  later on, reappear in a very serious  form.  Scolding Is, of course, the worst  possible treatment for nervousness of  any kind, though excessive sympathy  is almost as bad. The child should  be made to understand that his fears  and shyness are the results of ill-  health, and must be conquered "by  will-power duly accomplished by  nourishing diet, plenty of sleep, and  pdenty of enjoyed exercise out-of-  doors.  Playing His Cnrds  It was the custom of Mr. Cameron  to fall into an easy attitude wherever  ho might bo. This habit led .to an  occasional dialogue of a spicy nature,  and the dialogues 'led to a small  square package which Mr. Oamoron  presented to his wife one night.  "What in the world are these?" inquired Mrs. Cameron, as the unwrapping of the package revealed a few  cards neatly marked, "For Use," and  two or three dozon marked, "For  Show."  "Those, my dear," said Mr. Cameron, "are for | you to attach, by the  small pin on'tho under side, to the  various sofa cushions, chair-backs,  and unoccupied wall spaces in this  house. Then neither my head nor  that of any chance visitor will rest In  or on any object designed for ornament: and once more, evon with  Christmas coming every year, and  your friends as loving and generous  as ever, we shall have a happy home."  30  ^ssmmmxm^ts^i������sm.wBesia.\  " Unequalled for- Domestic Use."

Clifford has sold his gold  claims near Kitselas to a company  thafc will put a ten stamp mill in  operation this summer.  Several prospectors will explore  the Dease lake country this summer for placer gold.  J. A AVhittier is interested in a  gold dredge that is working on the  Q,uesnel river. He is a pioneer  mining man of the Slocan.  The old diggings in the Fraser  river near Yale are to be worked  under modern methods, according  to Dr. A. "\V. Moseley, who is to  construct for the Hills Bar Gold  Dredging    Company    a    caisson  the plan of the management to pay  for the proposed new smelter and  other equipment at the Hidden  Creek mine with the profits resulting from the operation of its mines  at Phoenix and its smelter at  Grand Forks, B. 0., and thus to  avoid the necessity of any further  capital issue.  ' 'Of course, it will be greatly to  the advantage of the stock holders  ultimately if Granby's stock issue  can.be kept down to the 150,000  shares   now   outstanding aud   no  bond or other indebtedness incurred.     After    its    Hidden   Creek  smelter is completed and in  commission  the   company should  be  able to produce at least 45,000,000  pounds of copper annually,  as its  capacity will then exceed 50,000,-  000 pounds.    This will  mean  an  output of 300 pounds of copper a  year for each share of its  stock;  and a profit of ten cents a pound,  which should easily be possible on  n   14    to  15-cent   metal   market,  would result in net earnings of ������15  a share  annually.    Three   years'  operations at this rate would return both principal and interest to  the buyer of Granby at its present  price   aud  leave the holder   "on  velvet" with his stock.  "It should   be remembered that  Granby  has been able to pay apr  proximately     81,    in    dividends,  equipment and property purchases,  for each ton of of ore so far taken  from its Phoenix mines;  and  that  it has over 0,000,000 tons  remaining there, all blocked out, with an  equal tonnage in addition reasonably assured  in  its Hidden Creek  property  "Granby also owns a large interest in the coal mine and coking  plant at Crow's Nest Pass, and a  100,000 horsepower waterfall at  Kettle Falls, Washington, which  together should have a value of  $2,000,000. At $3_*a share its entire capital stock has a market  value of only 85,100,000."  member for, Greenwood might rest  assured, would leave nothing undone to have all lawful obligations  liquidated.  B.

Eveu some coyotes  have crossed  the big divide for lack of food.  For some time past herds of black-  tailed heer have haunted the suburbs of Greenwood  in  search  of  food.    To protect their weakened  bodies from the coyotes the deer  have stood  in herds of 15 or 20  around  the Bonnie Belle cabins,  Floyd's ranch and other places for  the past  month.   Last  week Sid  Oliver found a two year old  doe  on  its last legs.   He carried the  doe to his stable and surrounded  her with hay,   turnips  aud  other  food, but she was too weak to eat  it.    He then  fed her with milk,  but the, animal   was too far gone  and   died   the   next   day.     Billy  Oliver found two dead  ones   on  Jubilee mountain ancl the  rest of  the herd too weak to run  away.  Sid  Oliver   wired   the   provincial  game    warden    asking   that   the  government supply food. for  the  animals.    The   warden  wired for  further   particulars,   and   in   the  meantime the deer are being supplied with food at various points  around   the   city.

JOHN OLIVER HOBBES  The Literary Life of Mrs. Craigic.  - The brightest, wittiest and keenest of erntemporary writers ia Mrs. Craigic,  better known to thc world of letters as John Oliver Hobbes. Her specialty is human  nature; she delights to vivisect humanity as a whblo, to put some poor struggling  emotion under the microscope of her investigation and study it as Binet would a  bacterium. The results of her findings arc delivered ��������� in epigrams, clear, crisp,',  cynical at times, but' always clover. ��������� Bho; stimulates thought in her readers; she  irritates at times, arouses antagonism, challenges opposition, but she forces attention. The threads of her destiny unite her to tho United States by birth and an-'  cestry, to England by adoption andeducation, and to Canada by marriage, being*  the daughter-in-law of Ernest Craigio of Montreal. Born in Boston in 1867,-  daughtcr of John Morgan Richards, now one of the wealthiest druggists in London, she came from an ancestry of four Puritan divines on one side and a line of  Tory politicians on tho other, her great grandfather being a member of the Halifax Parliament long before tho. Declaration of Independence.     -       , ���������  _ When a child of three she was taken on tho usual tour through Europe, the  beginning of her many travelling experiences. At a very early age she showed  preliminary symptoms of her appetite for literature in her unsatiatle" reading of  the books of others, and in attempting to add her few drops to the ocean of literature. At nine she received a prize for a story "Lost, a Dog," contributed to Dr.  Joseph.Parker's paper "Tho Fountain," but did no serious literary work until;  after her marriage. Sho was educated at University College,' London, and took  later courses in Rome and Paris, receiving much of her training at the Royal  Academy of Music.  When only nineteen sho was married to Reginald Walpolo Craigie of the Bank  of England, and her brief and unhappy matrimonial experience was terminated.  in 1895 by a divorce in which her young son was given into Jicr custody. With  him she went to thc beautiful home of her parents, a delightful, solid, old-fashioned  mansion at Lancaster Gate, one-of the fine residential sections of London. No  house in tho English metropolis gathers within its hospitable wall.-- a.greater  number of famous people, the, dinner-parties often consisting of forty, or fifty  guests and running the. spectrum of attainment in all phases. In this congenial  and inspiring atmosphere Mrs. Craigio has blossomed into fuller power., ���������    ���������  Her, literary output, though in a dozen or moro books ia slight after all in  volume, but in individuality, intrinsic value, piquancy and force, :havo given  their author world fame. Mrs. Craigio is slight, of a girlish figure and a face eloquent with an inner brightness and intensity, a complexion singularly fair, beautiful dark hair and largo black eyes. .  ���������.'uleriiU Kcotillu-r to Jut ittllui Parllaiutnt of Canada, in tlio j������ji 1005, Ly 1V, 0, Mack, at tbtlltpitrim-nitur/gricultura  I  if;  IT  ������'!><  '-Wi*  :*~fy'rrW
