A blue mark here indicates that,your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  Fhab is .the father of the devil.  You cannot raise tho dead, even  in a poker game.  Life   is   too   short   to hold  grudge against anyone.  Moral    reform    leagues  usually   mutual    admiration  cieties.  are  so  . You can cure dyspepsia by living on two bits a day and sawing  wood for it.  It. costs too much to govern  Canada, and we have too many  legislators with more ambition  than ability.  Trn-RE is a boom just outside  Greenwood.     It   has   broken   its  crutches and cannot walk in  lack of advertising.  for  Last week the deadlock in the  Ottawa parliament cost the country  more than $8,000 a day. This is a  case where talk was not cheap.  The extreme prevalence of grippe  in America this winter, was caused by the atmospheric conditions  in Europe, caused by the Balkan  war.  Some men think that the encouragement of vice is a good way  to build up a town. Such men are  deranged in their upper stope aud  mentally unfit to hold any public  office.  It is little wonder that the public business of Canada is so far behind when so much time and  money is wasted by hot air talk in  Ottawa. The deadlock last week  puts us in mind of a lot of kids  playing politics in a nursery. We  want more action and fewer words  about our public affairs.  stand, and a fancy liar we can  even enjoy. .  The burglar, foot-pad, towsled-  haired anarchist and drunken loafer; at least you know what they  are and what you may expect from  them. They are enemies of society  that wear the enemy's uniform, so  to say.  But the false friend wears your  uniform, he is a sneak, a spy and  a cheat.  Never when you are the sea sickest were you so nauseated as at  the moment you discovered that  the friend you trusted had betrayed  you.  No mixture of quinine and dottle is so bitter in the mouth as the  taste of faithlessness.  Dead towns sometimes have a  live paper, until the editor grows  tired of living in a cemetery and  moves to a more progressive community. In all towns where the  people rut, the many grow indifferent to the value and convenience of a newspaper in their midst.  A newspaper is a public institution  and its columns reflect the energy,  enterprise and progression, of the  district in which it is published.  Business men lose by not giving  their local papers a generous support.  Thinking Themes  I am opposed to all bill-boards  and street or country-side display  advertising.  My reason is that a city or a  country is a place to live in, more  than a place to transact business  in. We would not deface the  walls of our living rooms with a  placards about soap and ham; why  should we allow our outdoor home  to be uglified by them?  Bill-boards are of the same  nature as the business of street  hawkers and intrnstive peddlers,  who thrust their wares upon yon.  They are nuisances.  It amounts to making money by  offensiveness. Children get their  way by crying and teasing, some  women by nagging and pouting,  some men by sulking and bullying.  The theory is: make yourself a  nuisance till you gain your end.  It is not a commendabe trait of  human nature.  Advertising is a necessary part  of business.    It helps both buyer  and seller.   But it should bo confined to those channels where it  does not spoil higher and more important things than business.   The  law should restrict the enterprising advertiser for making the walls,  fences and building sides of city  streets unbeautiful, and for ruining the charm of the rural land-  scope.  The next step in civilization  should be the limiting of all outdoor display advertising to certain  places set aside for that purpose;  should be a distinct, conscious  declaration of the right of the people to beautify and peace.���������Dr.  Frank Crane.  tion with one of the police officials,  he informed us that it had been  pulled a couple of times, but, up to  now we have not heard of the faro  layouts being laid bare to the  authorities in Vancouver. This is  a matter that should be attended  to immediately.  Then  there is another place in  tho West End,  where everybody  is  in evening   dress.    There   are  women attendants on the gambling  games,  from stud poker to draw,  and they  havo introduced a roulette wheel for the high plungers.  Around about twelve o'clock   at  night they havo a lunch, which is a  cracker-jack, and comprises in tho  way of eatables, chicken and turkey,   with  all the trimmings, and  they wind up with sparkling Burgundy   and    wine.      Champagne  flows very freely, and it is needless  to  state  that  nearly  all the men  who attend there can afford high  play.    In an article in tho News-  Ad vertisor, a Platpment was mado  that gambling was very prevalent,  and as an instance of this, they  quoted a Chinoso joint being found  in  Kitsilano,   but that the police  proposed to stamp it out.    But, we  would ask, why are not these high  places being raided once in awhile?  Tho house we talk about is a  large private residence in the West  End, and the lady who runs it insists that every man who attends  her   games   shall   behave like   a  gentleman, and that all the women  who are behind the bank roll shall  behave like ladies.    Of course the  inevitable rake-off iB   there,   and  she certainly sees to it that the  money is deducted.    During the  hour that we were there, at a conservative estimate, we came to the  conclusion that about $60,00 was  raked off,  and,  of course, this is  very profitable-, particularly when  the games ruu into the wee sma'  hours of  the   morning.    It   is   a  positive fact, as the papers stated,  that gambling is increasing in this  town, and a Utile activity on the  part of the police would doubtless  result, insofar as the white element  is  concerned,   in  having a bunch  behind the bars, who aro more of  detriment to  Vancouver than all  the Chinese chuck-a-lnck, fantan,  ptegow and lottery games that at  present   exist   throughout Chinatown.  tered hopes at the time.  Whon courtship extends over a  period ��������� of years the joy and newness of loving and being loved has  worn off, ardor has cooled, and the  romance is so faded and aged the  wonder is that its-frayed odges hold  together. Romance may fade even  in rainbow tinted wedded lives.  In this instance it mellows into  strong, enduring, lifelong friendship which is love's left hand  brother. The glamour of romance  which belongs to the earlier days  is not essential for happiness.  *   *   *  Romance can not be claimed as  belonging to youth only. Tho  staid old bachelor could tell of  scores of romances in his life, the  ono beginning where the other left  of):', and if his memory would  stretch far enough ho might recollect a bilker's dozen of love  affairs successfully mutured at one  and the same time, which perished,  faded from his mind as completely  as though they never existed.  There is only ono reliable receipe  which will keep romances from  fading, and that is to gild them  over with a love which shall be  impervious to changes. ��������� Laura  Jean Libbey.  tion. It may be in spng, on canvas, in poetry, on the stage, rather  than to lavish them upon an unworthy husband.  Make of a defenseless public a  safety valve of your surcharged  soul; dance, act, write, sing, shout  till the heavens are riven rather  than let ferment of feeling expand  their force and volume until like  an-overfilled river they burst their  boundaries aud work distraction.  Ardor that finds its limits in itself and does not end in action  leaves tho soul, and mind enervated. When we feel keenly and do  the thing we feol the effect is restful and stimulating.  But any woman of fervent temperament who has never known  the ecstatic repose of practical relief through an art or accomplishment, or through lovo of husband  or children, grows haggard and  hard.  Remember: As well expect a  woman to be beautiful without  love in her soul as the forest to rejoice without the birds, the bees to  revel without tho flowers, or the  earth to blush without the sun.���������  Lillian Russell.

I rise to place in nomination the  faithless man.

Cupid also wishes mo to advise  that this gossamer fabric called  love is obliged to ho weighted  heavily by the strongest -hasps  affection can contrive to keep it  from iloating away like a toy  balloon.  Upon learning this I am at a  loss to determine how much fuith  and hope can with safety and certainty be pinned to gossamer hearts.  It does not seem that they are  made differently, for the Master  Builder has but one model.  Human ingenuity will never be  able to improve upon it. Tho  flowers, the most beautiful of his  creations next to human beings,  are made to fade, so why may not  hearts and romances become obliterated all too soon? Romances  either take deep root at once in  love's garden or they perish in the  bud. Wooing to be well done  needs proper attention and consideration. If it be done hastily,  carelessly, the romance is sure to  fade quickly, leaving only faint  traces of memory.  *   ���������)���������   *  Our ideals fade; the woman a  man loves today he may forget tomorrow���������thus runs the world  away.

A large percentage of the women  in the world today are suffering  from morbid unrest. They are  living in one interminable midnight of disappointment because  life has not laid at their feet an  open occasion for expanding the  qualities of the soul, and they are  too indolent or too cowardly to  seek out opportunities for themselves.  Tho result is that they are discontented, idle, domineering women who find their only solace in  extravagance.  After the* first buoyancy of  physical youth has subsided they  are faded, worn and shrewish because the tender and ideal sym  pathies have been granted no active  manifestations.

Now it \vns*beiug eliminated  to make way for u structure more iu  keeping with its surroundings.  Fitz Itoy called a cab and drove to  the home of his ancestors. Work had  been suspended on a certain portion of  the building, and there the foreman  led hinb. Removing material from  above, the workman had opened a compartment about 2 by 3 feet, supposed  to have originally been one of those  large chimneys built in former times,  nnd exposed a human head, or, rather,  skull. They had reported the find to  their boss, who ordered the work stopped and telephoned for the owner.  Fitz Roy was greatly interested.   He  ordered the walls inclosing the space  lowered with every care.   It widened  at the shoulders of the figure, assuming the proportions of an old time tire-  place, the opening of which had been  inclosed by a sliding panel four feet  in height, the outer side of which had  been painted to represent oali.    The  panel hung on a steel crosspiece and  was moved by a steel spring.   A brick  wall had been built at the opening,  covering the panel.  Whut few hairs remained on the  skull were quite long, and around the  neck was a lace collar of the time of  Charles 1. The costume was of that  period, in the fireplace were arms of  the same time, so that there was only  standing room for the figure. About  its waist was buckled a rupier on the  blade of which were stains Indicating  that it had been last sheathed with  blood on it  The work of demolition proceeded  slowly, Fitz Roy noting every particular. The least disturbance of the skeleton caused parts of the clothing to fall  away. The lace collar crumbled first,  then the doublet. The most surprising  feature in the case was that, while the  costume was that of a cavalier of the  seventeenth century, the pelvis indicated the wearer to have been a woman.  When a sufficient opening had been  made to remove the figure without  shaking it apart Fitz Roy sent for a  casket and had the remains removed  to the family vault. There it was put  in one of the vacant niches and murk-  ed: "Caroline Eleanor Fitz Roy. Disappeared 16~.   Body found 19-."  The discovery of this skeleton forms  the complement of an unfinished story,  indeed a story the whole of which wa.--  known only to Caroline Eleanor Fitz  Roy herself. Leonard Fitz Roy was  familiar with all of It that was ou record and. using' such light as was  thrown on It hy the discovery of the  skeleton, completed a romance thnt hud  beeu incomplete for between two uud  three hundred yeurs.  During the war between the king anil  tho parliament Fitz Roy bouse was Uie  scone of exciting events. But a few  miles from Loudon, its occupant.-* were  interested nnd were cognizant of the  opposition of the lawmakers to the royal authority and were greatly incensed  at it  This Caroline Eleanor Fitz Roy was  nt that time a beautiful girl about twenty years old, noted equally for her attractive personality and ber loyalty to  the king. Many of tbe young bloods  of her time wore in love with her, and  young Roundheads would doubtless  have been equally liable had she been  accessible to them.    There ���������������_������������������ ong  Roundhead, however, whom she had1  long known.    He was Richard Poin-  dexter, the son of a gentleman who on  account of some injustice he conceived  the king had done hini had joined the  parliamentary side.  Bicharo* up to the  time he and his family had taken part  against the king was the favored one  of all Caroline's suitors.   Women are  apt to be more violent In their advocacy of a cause - than men, and. from  tho moment she learned that Richard  had turned'Roundhead her love for him  seemed to' have turned to hate.   Just  before marching from London with his  command to meet the forces of Prince  Rupert he rode to Fitz Roy house to  bid her goodby.  There is little or no record of the Interview that took place at that time,  but other data indicate that she scorned the young man who had espoused  the cause she condemned.  A fragment  of a letter says:   "Richard was here  today to see Caroline.   He rode away  sorrowful, while Caroline came upstairs  with her cheeks hot, her eyes flashing,  and shut herself in her' room."   That  she did not see him again till after  the execution of the king is mentioned  in the family archives; also that she  spurned him as a regicide, accusing  him of being equally responsible -with  the regicides for the king's death. This  time when   Richard left her he was  more angered than sorrowful and iold  her that he would never see her again.  The loss of her cause, the execution  of the king���������au event appalling to a  headstrong  girl   who considered  the  person   of  her  sovereign  sacred���������the  fact of her-lover having joined those  she considered her enemies, seemed to  madden this loyal maiden.   Doubtless  the chief cause of her wrath was the  loss of her lover.    There Is no evidence that she had ceased to love him  notwithstanding  that she seemed to  hate him.   More likely, what appeared  to be bate came from the very intensity of her love and the fact that it  had been turned to bitterness.  About the time that Cromwell was  proclaimed lord protector of England  Richard Toindexter's regiment preparatory to being disbanded was encamped on vacant ground a short distance  from Fitz, Roy house.   One afternoon  some officers riding into camp met a  man rapidly approaching them. Ho did  not see them till he was upon them,  then looked up at them -wildly.   They  rode on a few hundred yards, when  they struck a wood and one of them  noticed a body lying near their path.  ���������Dismounting, they found one of their  own regiment who had been pierced  (by a rapier.   He was unconscious, but  not dead.  Suspecting that the man they had  met had caused the trouble, two ot  the party started in  pursuit. ��������� They  soon caught sight of him and saw him  turn into  the grounds of  Fita Roy  house.     Following   him   there,   they  came upon his horse.    Dismounting,  they entered the house and searched  every nook and cranny.   No one was  there except two old women and the  servants, none of whom showed any  excitement. Sure that the fugitive was  on the premises, thoy were reluctant to  give up the chase, but since it was  impossible to find him they went back  and reported the fact to those who had  remained with the wounded man.  He had revived and asked eagerly If  they had found his enemy.*- When they  said that they had not a look of intense relief passed over his face.  A conveyance was sent -from tho  camp. He was convoyed to his tent and  placed on his cot, where he remained  for some time recovering from his  ���������wound. When he was able to be about  again he left the parliamentary service and, going abroad, entered that of  the king of France. He declined to tell  who had stabbed him.  One afternoon Caroline Fitz* Roy's  horse was noticed nibbling the grass  in the grounds of Fitz Roy house.  She had not been at home for a day or  two, and it was supposed she had returned. But she did not appear. A  search was made for her in and about  the house, but she was not found.  That was more than 200 years ago.  and she is still missing.  Poindexter remained a number of  years in France. His family in England besought him to return, but he  w-buld not.  Finally the story that Caroline  Fitz Roy had long been missing  brought him home. He seemed greatly  distressed at the mystery, but if he  had anything to do with the girl's disappearance he never told. In a letter  written when he was an old man, in  which he referred to the matter, he assumed that she had gone to a foreign  country, where she must have died.  One  thing about tbe panel  in  the  demolished  house that  Leonard   Fitz  Roy carefully investigated was whether there was any way of opening it  from the inside.   He found tbat there  was not   He succeeded Jn supplying  sufficient parts of the story to lead him  to infer thnt Caroline Fitz Roy. following some plan or moved by somo  cause that did not appear, -went dressed as a man to seek her lover nt or  near his camp.  They met. nnd she killed him.   When pursued by his brother  officers  she  dismounted  and  entered  the house without being seen by any  one of tbe household and. knowing of  the secret space, went into It to hide.  The panel closed with a spring, and  she was unable to open it.  Among subsequent alterations the  fireplace was bricked up. -Quite possibly at the time of her imprisonment  she was the only one who know of tho  secret space and tho panel by which it  was entered.  The story of this girl, sealed for two  centuries, is a forcenble illustration of  those lines in Coleridge's poem "Chris  tobel:"  THE BRUNSWICK HOTEL  CIGAR    AND   NEWS   STAND  CARMI  ( Is now open to the public, New build,  ing, new furnishings and everything lot'  the comfort of our patrons, Sample room  and barn in connection,  EHOLT, B.

M1S1E NEWS   |  %00Oi>OC><>0<><>0<><><><>0<><>^OOC><>0  Only by taking advantage of the  technical  definition   of clay as a  mineral can one justify the inclusion of this article in a mining column, but clay is a mineral, and to  be utilized it has to be mined.    In  any  event,' apart from  tbe   open-lion of mining, it has a^ very intimate association  with  many of  our   most   important   industries.  ���������Whon the coking of coal was first  established as an independent industry   in   British "Industry   fire  bricks were necessary with which  to line tbe coke ovens.     They had  to be brought from Scotland,  and  cost about 860* per thousand.    The  lire bricks in a single oven   cost  about $500, so that if it were possible to  manufacture, them   from  local clay the; cost would probably  be reduced at least 50 per cent.   A  large number of fire   bricks   are  vised  in smelting of every kind,  whether  it be in the small cupola  of the foundry or the larger furnace of tbe smelting works.    We  are all hoping tbat within a few  years an  iron  smelting   industry  will be established at  the   coast  and steel making developed. When  the timo comes no inconsiderable  item in tbe coBt will be that of tbe  fire bricks.    No lire clay has yet  been    discovered   on   Vancouver  Island wbicb will make a satis  factory brick.  'Indeed, it is probably correct to say that no first-  class fire brick is manufactured in  Western   Canada.    This   lino   of  goods still has to bo imported from  Scotland,  Wales,   or   the  United  States.    Not only as an individual  investment,  but as a stimulus to  the development of othe industries,  the manufacture of fire brick is a  matter  which should  receive the  attention   of   investors.���������Victoria  Week.    Frank Brown loft last week for  Butte, in connection with a deal  he has on with some of tbe biggest  mining people in the world. If  this deal goes through there will be  a lively time in mining circles here  this summer.   As it is there are  many Butte people coming in. An  excursion is now being arranged  for about July 1st, which will  bring' in the Butte delegates who  are now thoroughly aroused to the  vaBt resources in the Hazelton district. Rocher de Boule mountain  is particularly attractive to them.  But when the mining capitalists  arrive it is their intention to visit  the whole mineralized district.  Up to date one deal has gone  through and several others are on  the way, and if the ground continues to show up well there is  every possibility of a smelter being  established hero.���������Hazelton Herald.    A. W. Smith and Ner Smith  located a valuable claim in the  South Belt a few days since. This  claim was purchased sixteen years  ago by "Doc." Smith for $5,000.  Smith was a real estate dealer and  ono of the owners of tho Smith-  Hewitt building, now occupied by  James Jordan, as a furniture store  Mr.'Smith did about 8500 worth of  work on the property and then  went east. It was re-located for  him several times by Ner Smith  and others by tho name of Smith.  Finally Doc Smith got careless and  failed to get out his miners' licence and the claim lapsed to tho  crown and was re-staked by John  Smith. The latter failed to keep  up bis assessment work on tlie  property and it escheated to the  crown. A few days since A. W.  Smith ancl Ner Smith learned that  it was vacaDt ground and they  went into the deep snow and re-  staked it, calling it the Summer-  side. The property carries extensions of the ledges of the Lily May  and of the Richmond claims. It  has a shaft, in which there is a  ledge, and the ledges have been  stripped here and there. The  Summerside is regarded as among  the valuable claims in the South  Belt.���������Rsssland Miner.  The Coronation mine in the  Bridge River district is still keeping up to the expectations of its  owners as a producing high grade  free milling ore with depth. Mr.  Chas. Copp, manager of the property for more than a year, passed  through Lillooet, enroute to Victoria to report to his principals,  the -'Dunsinuir Interests, who now  own the mine.  Mr. Copp was very reticent in  giving out information, but it is  known that the development of  this gold producer has for the past  few months been concentrated on  the 400-foot level, aud specimens  brought in by Mr. Copp are known  to be of a high grade.  The lead on the 400-foot level,  where the present work is progressing, is eighteen inches to two  feet in width, and the high grades  occupy the whole of the quartz surface. There are now 2,000 tons of  oro on the dump ready to be run  through the mill in the spring, and  this has all resulted from development work, and not for stopeing.  The mill will be in operation by  the first of June, thero will be 300  or 000 tons of ore in addition to  that ou "tho dump and in addition  the mine will have been opened up  on the lower level to such an extent that by stopeing a continuous  supply of the gold-bearing quartz  can be fed into tbe stamps.  The Coronation mill at present  consist of ten stamps and it will be  necessary to replace'some fittings  before tbe spring's run.-Lillooet  Prospector.  Thero is a "catching" fever of  optimism and good cheer permeating tho ozone around tho Apex  mine this week as thc result of tbe  crew coming in contact with some  line looking ore. Major Blaine  states that the machine bored into  what promises to be tbo best body  over encountered in tho thirteen  years that property has been worked (this being just another evidence of tho Major's lucky "13"  again, which has characterized the  greater part of his eventful career.) It is of good grade, carrying its values in gold, silver and  lead.  Tlie oro was encountered in the  drift being diiven from tho main  working shaft on tbe Apex from  the 350 foot level. Tlio drift is-  driven south from the main workings and picked up tho oro at 101  feet. This drift is now being  tracked and will lie (--quipped witli  a modern stool car at once to  facilitate the work, the distance  from-tbo face of tlio drift to the  shaft being too great to handle the  rock and oro. otherwise.���������Chesaw  News.    The main tunnel in the Anfeas  mine is now in 123 feet from the  face. Since, taking the contract a  little over a fortnight ago Henry  Johnson and his associates have  driven sixty-three feet besides laying tunnel track as thoy advanced  and transporting all their equipment from the camp to tbe mine.  The work of timbering tho tunnel  is now in progress. The rock  handled is all mineralized and the  contractors are so pleased with the  prospects that they are eagerly buying the little stock that is offered  for sale.  According to the engineer's estimate the tunnel should strike the  vein at a little over 300 feet from  tho face. If the present rate of  progress can lie maintained, oven  making ample allowance for all  other incidental work, the vein  will be struck by tbe end of April  and Hope will at last have a producing mine and a permanent  payroll.���������Yale Review.

BULKLEY LAND  There has been a great activity  in real estate in tbo valley during  tho last few months, and the steady  demand for land,' outside of tho  speculation in land in tho vicinity  of the proposed townsites, demonstrates tho fact that the Bulkley  Valley is attracting tho attention  of the outside investor. Last week  several deals were completed for  land in the vicinity of-Chicken  Lake, and although the exact price  per acre was not made public, it is  known that oue or two pieces  brought as high as thirteen thousand dollars. Of course, this is a  very favorable location, and, in  addition to its value as good farming land, it has a speculative value.  This week there were several  pieces sold, some of which were as  far south as Pleasant Valley, at  prices ranging from $9 to -$10.50  per acre.   These  are  very good  1  At the Greenwood Opera House,  Thurssday,    March    20th,    local  theatregoers  will   have their first  opportunity of witnessing an exhibition   of   the   1912   Pendletou  Roundup,  as shown in 5,000 feet  of excellent films.    All the thrills  aro   there.    The   biggest   cowboy  and cowgirl show ever held in the  country is depicted in true detail.  So realistic are the pictures, which  were taken at Pendleton, that they  are followed with the greatest interest.    Especially is this true of  those who were so fortunate as to  have been present at the Roundup  last September.    From  tho opening day of the Roundup to tbo  last act,  everything was 'caught'  by   the   picture   man.      Perfect  weather   conditions   combined   to  make   the   pictures   more    than  usually fine.    Many of tho scenes,  while very thrilling, aro also full  of humor.    The 'Bull-dodging' of  tho cowboys is shown  in  all its  reckless daring. ��������� A man's leg was  broken at one stage of the show  whon   he   was   thrown   under   a  horse.     This is portrayed,  with  many other heroic and spectacular  features throughout tho one hour  and forty-live minutes of the films,  and the entire 5,000 feet of reel ie  filled with intense interest.   Mr.  Chalmers is  indeed  fortunate in  securing   this  attraction   for   his  house as they have only shown in  larger cities.
