A blue mark hero indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would onco more  like to  commune with your collateral.  OUR MARKET REPORT  By our market reports we notice  that balloons have an upward tendency,   and  Prosbyterian  parsons  are at a premium  in   the   west.  Money is easy in  Vancouver, and  there is still  a brisk demand  for  holy water in  Quebec.   The  price  of  votes  in   B. C are  not  much  above par.    Planks are scarce  owing to the large quantity  recently  taken by the Liberals.    Dummies  a-fc Nelson are a drug in the market,  and high balls are a little stronger  in Phoenix.    Hot air is reported  short at Grand Forks, aud hockey  has taken  a   terrible tumble   in  Greenwood.    Easter  bonnets  will  soon cause a panic in some quarters, but Lent has not yet  visibly  depressed the price of meat.   Water  is rising,   and  next  month  there  will   be  a log boom.   There are  still a few acres of land in Alberta  outside of Calgary.    Whiskey   is  going down in  some parts of the  country, while here and there beer  is coming up.    Owing to  the approaching election jags are morel  plentiful, and ozone is liable to go  higher owing to the great demand  made upon it for campaign speeches.    Blind pigs are becoming scarce,  and  in many places jackpots are  entirely off the market.    Salvation  is still quoted as being ou the free  list, but the parsons are  talking  about forming a union in order to  raise their wages and increase the  price of pews.' Good Liberals are  rather scarce, but a few Socialists  can still be picked up at a bargain.  In all places outside of cemeteries  and dead towns there is a lively  demand for  printers  ink.    Bacon  and  eggs show no change, while  Limburger   cheese   maintains its  usual strength.  opened our first printing oliice.  Since then the world has made  wonderful progress.  In 20 years from now B. C. will  probably have a population of three  millions, and che McBride Govern  ment still in power.  Fj*oji present indications it looks  as though thero might be a presidential election in the United  States this year.  It looks as though our old friend,  Harry Wright, was holding a four  flush in the coming election.  The lap of Spring must be a soft  seat judging from the way Winter  is holding it down this year.  The live ad has snatched many  a dying business from tho mouth  of the grave.  Booze and politics are boon companions these days.  that earth affords.  But their success it- not attained  by the Samuel Smile-Connecticut  policy. Thoy do not lie in wait,  nor scheme, nor fawn, nor seek to  adapt their sails to catch the breeze  of popular favor. Still, they are  ever alert and live to any good  that may come their way, and  when it comes they simply appropriate it, and tarrying not, move  steadily on.  Good health! When you'go out  of doors, draw thc chin in, carry  the crown of the head high, and  fill the lungs to tho utmost; greet  your friends with a smile, and-put  soul into every hand-clasp.  Do not fear being misunderstood;  and never waste a minute thinking about your enemies.  Try to fix (irmly in your own  mind what you would like to do,  and then without violence of direction you will move straight to the  goal.  Fear is the rock on which' we  split, and hale is the shoal on  which many a bark is stranded.  Whon wo are fearful, the judgment is as unreliable as the compass of a ship whose hold is full of  iron ore;' when wo, hate, wo have  unshipped the rudder; and if we  stop to meditato on what tho gossips say, we havo allowed a hawser  to befoul the screw.  Keep your mind on the great  and splendid thing you would like  to do; and then, as the days go  gliding by, you will find yourself  uucousciously seizing upon the  opportunities that are required for  the fulfilment of your ' desire, just  as the coral insect takes from the  running tide the elomenfcs that it  needs.  Picture in your mind the able,  earnest, useful person you desire  to be, and the thought you hold is  hourly transforming you into that  particular individual.  for miles the wolves dogged his  tracks. He says that were the  country not full of caribou this  winter and the wolves well fed.  they might havo attacked him and  made short work of him. He is  sure they would havo attacked his  dogs had ho not been with them.  On arriving at tho next cabin  Hague was nearly exhausted.  Thinking* Themes  The Norwegians have always  been great explorers so it is little  surprise to us tbat one of them has  found the South Pole. Along with  the Swedes they discovrred Minnesota in the early days, and. if the  truth was known we believo it  would be found that they discovered America 500 years before  Christopher Columbus went to sea.  The last refuge of bad taste is  found in funerals and grave-yarde.  Here is a citadel of ignorance,  crudity and superstition. Driven  out of every part of town where intelligence and common sense may  attack them, they take refuge here,  safe under the protection of sacred  sentiment. Stupidity, successfully  fought and overcome all a man's  life, rises at his funeral to a question of personal privilege, and sits  down on his tomb forever.  One of the saddest things about  dying  to  think  on,   is  that after  hating and resisting Convention all  one's life, it  breaks in  and takes  full charge of your remains.    To  think that,  as I lie in  my coffin,  the soft spoken, velvet foot Undertaker is going to como around and  quietly  and   with   a   sympathetic  smile veto all my  wishes, and  be  paid for it out of   my  insurance  money.  And then  tho  Grave-yard!   To  Thought is supreme, and to  think is often better than to do.  Preserve a right mental attitude  ���������that of courage, frankness and  good-cheer.  The only way to get friends is  to be one. ���������Ex.  Vandals Destroy Cabins  Dawson, March 10. ���������Despicable  ingratitude   is   being  shown   this  winter   by    a   certain    class -of  ���������'mushers"  in   destroying  cabins  along the trail which are placed at  the disposal  of passing travellers.  Billy Hague reports some idlers  from town who were out  over -tho  Sweed Creek  trail  some distance  destroyed the bunks and tables of  some of his cabins,  and  used the  material for etove  wood.    In  ono  place the stove which   Hague had  placed there had   been   removed.  This nearly  cost  Hague  his life.  When taking up the work of carrying the winter mail between  Dawson and Glacier Creek  two years  ago, Hague built cabins along the  route, so that every  two or three  times a day ho would have a place  of refuge.    He stocked each cabin  with a stove,  a bunk  and other  material, and left a pile of kind-  Passed Over Platinum  Phoenix, Ariz.���������Recent rises in  the price of platinum, which is now  worth twice as much as gold, have  drawn attention to the fact that  platinum has been found in the  San Domingo placer fields, near  Wickenburg, and that unknown  quantities of the metal have been  passed up and thrown awayr by  seekers after gold.  Platinum is a metal to which  few prospectors pay any attention.  In fact, almost none of them recognize it when they seo it and  mistake it for iron. It is just a  little lighter in color than iron and  is easily mistaken for the base  metal by those who have not learned to detect tho slightly different  shade.  Iu the San Domingo fields every  indication points to the existence  of     platinum.    There    are   great  quantities of black sand there and  it is said that wherever placer gold  and black sand go together,  platinum  ia   found.    In   fact,   many  small nuggets   of platinum  have  -been found in the San Domingo  fields, though few persons capable  of recognizing the metal at sight  have ever worked there and no one  has ever worked the sands with the  expectation   of fiuding   platinum.  Without a doubt platinum exists  in much of the sand that has been  worked for gold already  and perhaps it can  be worked again - at a  great profit.  Two Phoenix business men who  recently became interested in the  A. J. Kellis placer claims intend  to make a ' thorough examination  and find out how much platinum  is there.

When Hague made the trip out  during the cold spell he found the  stove had been removed from his  cabin near the head of California  creek.

Before he covered  the twelve miles, he had to Btop to  untangle the dogs' harness, and  suddenly when looking up he saw  a pack of three timber wolves nearby.

It is quoted in Maiden  Lane at ������43 an ounce for tho hard  platinum and ������41 an ounce for the  soft metal. These aro the highest  prices ever reached and indicate  an advance of about $10 an ounce  in the last six months.  The upward movement of platinum was nearly equaled several  years ago.    In 1905 pure platinum  was selling at $18.50, with only  a  languid  demand.    Early  in  190G  the sales  began to increase 'and  prices steadily advanced  until in  December of that year pure plat  inum was selling at $38 au  ounce  and  hard  platinum  touched  $40  Then a decline started and con  tinued until 1908, when the price  was down   to less than   $20   an  ounce.   The present upward move  ment started soon aftorwards.  The production of platinum iu  this country is small, for all that  is obtained comes as a by product  in working tho gold placers of Cal-  ifornia and Oregon.

"This Is the fifth marriage settlement I have had the honour of drawing up for your family, Sir Thomas,  and you will excuse me, I hope, expressing my curiosity respecting one  peculiarity common to them all."  "I think" Interpolated1*the.baronet,  "I can anticipate .what- you are going  to say, Cheevers. "Sou are puzzled to  explain why there Is a uniform dowry  of ������8,000 settled upon my daughters  from the' date of their marriage, es-  "������������������"ilv when von aro aware that a  similar sum was settled upon my  sisters when they married."  "Precisely, Sir Thomas. To speak  openly, I.wondered why the sum-was  not fixed at ,������5,0*00 or ������10,000."    .  "I comprehend your meaning fully.  You might be a long time searching  for a solution of the problem,and fail,  to solve It ln the end.   It is, however,"  an interesting story.  "My eldest sister, Ita, was a charming girl, idolised byour parents, the  most  popular  of  the  young  courtty  people of her age, and beloved by the  common people.   Up to the time immediately   preceding  the  public   announcement of her  engagement she  was regarded as heart-free, and unattached to any of the many eligible  admirers   with, whom   she   was   acquainted.    Ono^evoning, after dinner,  Mr.  Strewton,  a  neighbour of ours,  called to know If I could play in a  cricket   match   that   was   being   arranged with a team from the metropolis.    Subsequently he asked if my  father was alone in the library, as he  wished to speak with'him.   I brought  him down  to the dear old man, and  left tho pair of them together, never  dreaming of the* surprise that interview had in store for us all.   About  a 'week later we were apprised that  Ita had given her heart "to Strewton.  That herself and her lover had always  entertained mutual affection for each  other, though Strewton had made no  avowal until his bachelor uncle Bad  spoken to him of the desirability of  marrying and avoiding the premature  ageing and loss of. real live interest  in life which is the fate of the overwhelming majority of old  bachelors.  Strewton avowed his desire'to marry  my sister -but explained that he never  felt at liberty to disclose his heart's  dearest -wish to her, because he recognized that he was dependent upon  his uncle's generosity for the wherewithal to set up an establishment of  his own.   Contrary to the code of the  romance writer, Strewton's uncle approved his nephew's action and choice,  and guaranteed a generous settlement  if the marriage could be arranged to  the satisfaction of all parties.  "It was after this interview  Strewton .ascertained that my sister  reciprocated his affection and, later,  secured audience of the pater. I well  remember - my father approving of  Strewton's manly, straightforward  way of urging his suit. 'By George,'  he used to say, 'I shall never forget  the earnestness with which eulogising  Ita, young Strewton averred that she  was 'worth her weight in gold,' or the  happy thought that prompted me to  say, 'that she is; and her own weight  in gold will be her wedding dowry.',  "Of course, Cheevers, you remember  that my father was Director of a  Bank at that period . What, do ^ you  think he did? One day he brought  Ita into the Bank and, in the presence  of two other members of the* Board,  conducted ,her to the strong room  where she was put sitting into a beam  and scales constructed on the principle of those commonly, "seen at the  town market-houses throughout the  country.- When, she was comfortably  fixed, one of the porters of the establishment was directed to shovel  sovereigns into the opposite scale  until the gold placed there equalled  the weight of the lady on the other  side. When the coins were subsequently counted the amount was  found to be ������8,000, representing, as  well as I remember, my sister's weight  to be about ten stones. That was-.the  origin of the * ������8,000 dot in our  family."  WOT EVEN IN DEATH  -        'By E*e Grantly  (Copyright by Publishers Press Ltd.)

A corpulent gentleman with a large  appetite entered a mean-looking restaurant, and ordered a chop, and waited twenty minutes. Thou the waiter  reappeared with a plato on which  rested a dab of mashed potatoes, a bit  of meat burnt almost to a cinder, out  of which emerged a long, thin piece  of bone.  Tho waiter set it down before tho  starving gentleman and hurried off.  "See here," called tlie customer, "I  ordered a chop." ������  "Yes sir," replied the man, "thero  it is."  "Ah, so It is," mused the hungry  man, readjusting his spectacles. "I  thought it was a crack In tho plate."  Knowledge is, indeed, that which,  next to virtue, truly and essentially  raises one man above another. It  finishes one half of the human soul.  It gives ease to solitude and gracefulness to retirement ��������� Addison.  "Don't let anything worry or distress him," said the doctor. "He won't  live through 'the night; but he will  probably be quiet and comfortable  up to the end. " The least excitement  may bring on the pain again."  He was. a young, soft-hearted  doctor with a pair of Irish eyes that  had a trick of growing misty at times  over the death-beds of his patients.  This grey-haired man had interested  him from the first. How had he spent  his life?  "Poor fellow!" he said to the nurse.  "I feel sure he 1-a a Somebody. He  looks like a man with an interesting  past. Has-he no friends, I wonder?"  But the landlady knew of no one.  He had * lived -in her house for five  years and always paid her regularly.  Business letters; or -what looked like  business letters,1 came for him, and  he burned a great deal of oil sitting up far into the night���������writing,,  she believed���������but beyond that she  knew nothing of ^im.  ,A coal fell Into the grate and  startled her from her reverie. Sho  had been thinking of the old days,  the days when she had been a happy,  laughing young thing, loving and  loved of" everyone and without a care  In the world. It would be springtime now in the country, ancl there  wero primroses and violets under the  hedges, and the woods would ba all  green and leafy. Their woods! and  now others would be walking In ,the  narrow paths, and over tho leaf-  strewn mosses where frail anemones  unfolded their buds.  Over tho calm,'steadfast face there  stole a tear, the lonely descendant of  all those sho had shed long, long ago.  Sho wiped It away with a furtive look  towards the bed. Tho professional  Instinct reasserted itself; sho loved  her work and excelled In It; it was  time for the patlont to take his medicine, perhaps tho last draught which  would pass his lips till-he should  drink of tlie waters of Lethe and be  at peace. As sho poured the mixture  into the glass he'opened his eyes and  fixed them on her In a fixed, vacant  gaze.  "Nurse," he said suddenly, "I shall  die to-night."  She 'gave him. the medicine and  smoothed his pillow before she answered.  "You will be glad to go?" she asked  quietly.  "Out of this hell? Yes! Whatever  lies beyond it can't be worse. Nurse,  I have spoken to no one of what I  have suffered, to no one in the world.  May I talk to you a little? It-will ease  me, I think, and you don't know my  name ��������� or hers. Yes, it was a woman,  of course. -They're the curse of the  world, I tell you! No, I won't say  that, though���������you've been good to  me; but then I wasn't your nearest  and dearest."  ."Listen, I was young and strong  and on the high-road to fame, and I  married the woman.I adored, heaven  help me for a blind fool! Yes, I worshipped her, and'-I thought she worshipped me; but���������pah! there was no  truth or constancy.ki her. She deceived me and we parted. I never  saw her again in all these fifteen  years, and all the time I've been going  downhill���������you see what I've come to!  I didn't care for fame or money or  anything else _ after she .went -away,  and "I lost everything' by degrees.  That's my life-story, nurse. Why, I  believe you're crying! Have you such  a tender heart?"  " "I am not crying; but���������it's terrible!  Have you never forgiven her? Suppose���������suppose there was some mistake? Suppose you were hasty and  hurt her too cruelly, and she was  proud and went away without speaking? Arc you sure you were in the  right? Did you never wonder whether  she were not innocent after all?"  "She had dark blue eyes like yours,"  he said dreamily. "But her face was  round and her hair was dark and  curly. Heaven ��������� or the devil ��������� had  made her very beautiful."  "He must not be excited or the  pain will come back," the woman  kept repeating to herself, and the  nails made deep marks in the flesh  of her clenched hands.    "To tell him  ��������� but he would not forgive ��������� he  would not believe that he was wrong  ��������� and then, the cruel agony!"  The   lamp   began   to   burn    low;  strange shadows danced on the ugly  wall-paper, and a co'.d breath seemed  to pass through ihe room. The nurse  rose to look at her watch on the chest  of drawers. There was a small cracked looking-glass over it, and as she  passed she caught a glimpse of her  own reflection. No wonder he had  not recognised her, she thought with  a sad smile. Fifteen, years of bitter  pain and hard work had left her little  beauty.  The man's breath was coming in  gasps, beads of sweat stood out on -  the wide brow; he was not of those  to whom the crossing comes easily.  Men of his stamp fight with death as  they have fought with life, and suffer  horribly. It was midnight now; he  would scarcely live another hour.  "Is the pain coming back?" asked  the nurse, bending over ��������� him. He  took no notice of her question.  "Yes, she was beautiful," he gasped.  "I wonder whero she is now?"  Her eyes shone with a light that  was new to them.  "Would you forgive���������if she were  here?" she asked softly.  But he turned his face fretfully to  the wall.  "No, I would never forgive, not  on my death-bed, not even now!"  The light died out of her eyes and  left her face oldor and greyer.  "Ah! the pain!" he groaned. "Nurse,  give me something!"  She took up the little bottle, the  contents of which would send him  quietly and painlessly to rost. Then  she hesitated.  "No, I would nover forgive!" he repeated. "She spoilt my life. Ah,  heaven, the pain!"  "Of what use?" the woman said to  herself.    "He would never forgive."  Bho uncorked the bottle and bent  over-him.  THE VEIL OF FUTURITX  By Martin Ljon  (Copyright by Publishers Press Ltd.)'  A fellow is generally broke when  girl drops him.  Perfectly motionless lay the ship on  the still water, awaiting the dawn to  enter the harbor. In a deck-chair  Leslie Cartwright stirred restlessly.  Tt was late, and nearly all the other  T>as-*engers had retired for the night;  but be va-* In no mood for sleep.  In the dim light the man's face was  c-rav w'lh an unnatural pallor, scored  blackly hero ancl there, on the fore-  heart and round tbe mouth, with short,  hard line**- Every now nnd then his  ham's would clench nervously, and a  quid*, iinoafiont sigh escaped his com-  press-fd lips The light murmur from  the bulwarks, where, a late Cellov-  travelei* and the first officer were  '���������hatting over a last cigar, came to  him as nn impertinence ancl nn irritation. At length the voices died away  as the "iic-akers moved forward, and  nothing broke the stillness save the  lone- wash of the Australasian sea,  and at intervals, with Inrring suddenness   the striking of thc ship's bell.  The man looked around to see if  he was nlone, aud dropped back with  an exclamation of satisfaction. By-  and-by ,]\c began to murmur and fret  once more. "What fools women are!"  he growled. "They take an abstraction and make a god of it; they take a  literature and make It a' fetish. And  what a fool I am to take so "much  notice of their chatter!"  He was fiiient for a time. Then he  resumed his muttering. - "Who said  'the Veil of Futurity is woven by the  hand of Mercy'? Stuff! I should like  to lift it, for one. .Tust as though  thero could possibly be any mercy in  not letting n poor devil see what's  ahead of him ��������� and people hpvo lifted  it, too ��������� what about tho Eastern  mystics ��������� the sooth-saycrs ��������� the  Chaldeans? ��������� what about prophecy?  Tho old prophets were moro than tho  mere far-sighted statesmen as some  would have 'us believe ��������� wonderful  ��������� wonclerfiil "  His voice died away in a low,  dreamy murmur; then lie, stirred  again, and began to mutter once  more.  "What about their wretched Western imitators! They are loo grossly  material to possess even a fraction  of the occult p'ower they presume to  lay claim to. Centuries of European  training have been quite enough to  exterminate any force of the kind,  even if it ever existed. Existed? ���������  of course it did. Men' have read the  stars like an open book and seen their  own fate in the signs of the wind and  the wave ��������� they have foretold war  and famine and pestilence and the  doom of nations ;but they were men  of old ��������� not the puerile would-be  mystics of to-day.  "I do not believe the most spiritualized, sensitive Anglo-Saxon could look  five minutes into the unknown.','  As he spoke, his white face grew  whiter, and an expression almost of  fear came over it. He shivered for  a moment, then braced himself,  evidently with an effort. He laughed  nervously.  "Something is wrong with me," he  said savagely. "I hope I am not going  to get fever. I had a feeling then that  I could know the future, if I would  ��������� only ��������� that it would be well for  me if I did not will to know. It's  horribly uncanny; I can't shake it  off. "Well ��������� his voice rose in excited defiance ��������� "I will test this  power. I demand to see myself a year  hence."  Then he was floating in a thick,  heavy atmosphere; now dark'��������� dark  to blackness ��������� now lightening into  transparent blue; sometimes flashing  Into silver, and even blazing into a  splendor of gorgeous golden freshness.  Around him, with him, and of him,  were long, spherical gray shapes. He  was conscious of a curious sense of  dispersion ��������� of separation in some  indefinite, indefinable manner, from  himself; and yet he was perfectly  capable of connected thought.  "Can this be an answer to my demand?" ho questioned. "Bah! As  vague as all prophecy! Well, we will  ask eleven months." There was no  change. "Well, then, ten ��������� nine ���������  eight ��������� seven six!"  A look of horror seized him. Great  drops of sweat sprang out on his  brow. One might h ave seen the  muscles start and stiffen in his hands  as he gripped the arms of the chair.  "Five ��������� four ��������� three ��������� two ��������� a  month, yes, a month!" ho spoke with  agonized intensity.  The sense of uneasiness was with  him still, .but in a modified degree.  He seemed more sentient, more living,  more human. His voice rose to a  shriek. "Take me back to this hour  ��������� to this minute." Ho was alive  now, but oh! the agony of that revival! Ah, that fierce, deadly grip on  his shoulder! A score of cruel, sharp  points were entering his flesh and  crushing his loins as in a steel trap!  What was-that awful wrenching tug  at his-foot?,"Ah, mercy! mercy!"  :';;'���������   X ; X   -X    "  The first officer reported to the  captain:  "I had been talking to Mr. Chad-  *wlck till he finished his cigar. I  noticed Mr. Cartwright";��������� he was,  lying, in a deck-chair, I thought;  asleep. Before turning in finally, I  made- the round of the decks, after  Mr. TChadwick had gone. When I  came back Mr' Cartwright was still  there, and, as I thought he might  get a chil if he, slept In the open air,  I was going to awake him.  "As I got close to him, I found that  he was talking In his sleep very excitedly. I was just about to rouse  him when ho sprang out of his chair  with a most dreadful shriek for mercy  and before I could stop him he had  rushed to the side and jumped overboard. I snatched up a coil of rope  and ran to the place, but I was too  late. It would almost seem ns if the  sharks had boon waiting for him.  There were three of them."  And he turned away and put his  hand over his eyes. ���������.  Unequalled for Domestic Use."

Billy Hague reports some idlers  from town who were out over the  Sweed Creek  trail.some distance  destroyed the bunks and tables of  some of his cabins,  and   used  the  material for stove  wood.    In  one  place the stove which   Hague had  placed there had   been   removed.  This nearly  cost  Hague  his life.  When taking up the work of carrying the winter mail between  Dawson and Glacier Creek two years  ago, Hague built cabins along the  route, so that every two or throe  times a day he would have a place  of refuge.    He stocked each cabin  with a stove,  a bunk and other  material, and left a pile of kindling there each   time.    Others of  tho country coming that way were  welcome to use tho cabins, and did  so, but always left fresh  kindling,  until  recently when  the vandals  came along and robbed the place of  bunks,  wood and   other articles.  When Hague made the trip out  during the cold spell he found tho  stove had been removed from his  cabin near the head of California  creek.   Being    unable    to   camp  there at the customary time, he  had to push on twelve miles further that night.   Before he covered  the twelve miles, he had to'stop'to  untangle the  dogs'harness,   and  suddenly when looking up he saw  a pack of three timber wolves nearby.    Hague was not prepared to  make a fight, but lie gave a series  of yells, and the wolves trotted off  somo distance,   Hague moved on,  shade.  In the San Domingo fields every  indication points to the  existence  of    platinum.    There   are   great  quantities of black sand there and  it is said that wherever placer gold  and black sand go together,  platinum  is   found.    In   fact,   many  small  nuggets   of platinum  have  -been found  in  tho San  Domingo  fields, though few persons capable  of recoguizing the metal at sight  have ever worked there and no one  has ever worked the sands with the  expectation   of finding   platinum.  Without a doubt platinum exists  in much of the sand that has been  worked for gold already  and perhaps it can  be worked again - at a  great profit.  Two Phoenix business men who  recently became interested in the  A. J. Kellis placer claims intend  to make a thorough examination  and find out how much platinum  is there. A number of platinum  nuggets have -been picked on  Kellis' ground.  Platinum, which now is far more  costly than gold, has been advancing rapidly in price iu the past few  weeks. It is quoted in Maiden  Lane at S-i.3 an ounce for the hard  platinum and HI an ounce for the  soft metal. These aro tho highest  prices ever reached and indicate  an advance of about 810 an ounce  in the last six months.  The upward movement of platinum was nearly equaled several  years ago.    In 1905 pure platinum  was selling at 818.50, with ouly a  languid  demand.    Early in  1906  tho sales   began  to increase   and  prices  steadily advanced  until in  December of that year pure platinum was selling at 838 au ounce  and hard platinum touched  840  Then a decline started and con  tinued until 1908, when  the price  was down   to less than   820   an  ounce.    The preseut upward movement started soon afterwards,  The production of platinum in  this country is small, for all that  is obtained comes as a by prod not  in working tho gold placers of Cal-  ifornia and Oregon. The chief  source of supply is the Ural mountains in Kussia, but some is also  obtained from Sonth America aud  Canada.���������The Mexican Herald.

"I, think" Interpolated"* the .baronet,  "I can anticipate what-yo'u are going  to say, Cheevers. You are puzzled to  explain why there is a uniform dowry  of ������8,000 settled upon my daughters  from the date of their marriage, es-  "���������'"''���������������������������v when vou are aware that a  similar sum was settled upon my  sisters when they married."  "Precisely, Sir Thomas. To speak  openly, I,wondered why thp sum was  not fixed at ������5,0*00 or  ������10,000."    .  "I comprehend your meaning fully.  You might be a long time searching  for a solution of the problem and fall  to solve it In th'e end.. It Is, however,"  an Interesting story.  "My eldest sister, Ita, was a charming girl, idolised by*our parents, the  most popular of the young courity  people of her age, and beloved by tho  common people. Up to the time Immediately preceding the- public announcement of her engagement she  was regarded as h-eart-frco, and unattached to any of the many eligible  admirers with whom sho was acquainted. One���������evonlng, after dinner,  Mr. Strewton, a neighbour of ours,  called to.kuow if I could play In a  cricket match that, was being ar-;  ranged with a team from the 'metropolis. Subsequently he asked if my  father was alone in the library, as he  wished to speak with1 him. I brought  him down io the dear old man, and  left the pair of them together, never  dreaming of the surprise, that interview 'had in store for us all. About  a "week later we were apprised that  Ita had given her heart to Strewton.  That herself and her lover had always  entertained mutual affection for each  other, though Strewton had made no  avowal until his bachelor uncle had  spoken to him of the desirability of  marrying and avoiding the premature  ageing and loss of real live interest  in life which Is the fate of the overwhelming majority of old bachelors.  Strewton avowed his desire'to marry  my sister-but explained that he never  felt at -liberty to disclose his heart's  dearest wish to her, because he recognized that he was dependent upon  his uncle's generosity for the wherewithal ,to set up an establishment of  his own. Contrary to the code of the  romance writer, Strewton's uncle approved his nephew's action and choice,  and guaranteed a generous settlement  if the marriage could be arranged to  the satisfaction of all parties.  -"It was after this interview  Strewton ascertained that my sister  reciprocated his affection and, later,  secured audience of the pater. I well  remember - my father approving of  Strewton's manly, straightforward  way of urging his suit. 'By George,'  he used to say, 'I shall never forget  the earnestness with which eulogising  Ita, young Strewton averred that "she  was 'worth her weight in gold,' or the  happy thought that prompted me to  say, 'that she is; and her own weight  in gold will be her wedding dowry.'  "Of course, Cheevers, you remember  that my father was Director of a  Bank at that period . "What s do ^ you  think he did? One day he brought  Ita Into the Bank and, in the presence  of two other members of the* Board,  conducted her * to the strong room  where she was put sitting into a beam  and scales constructed on the principle of those commonly "seen at the  town market-houses throughout the  country. When she was comfortably  fixed, one of the porters of the establishment was directed to shovel  sovereigns into the opposite scale  until the gold placed there equalled  the weight of the lady on the other  side. When the coins were subsequently counted the amount was  found to be ������8,000, representing, as  well as I remember, my sister's weight  to be about ten stones. That was-the  origin   of   the   ������8,000   dot   in   our  NOT EVEN IN DEATH  By Ev������ Graiilly  (Copyright by Publishers Press Ltd.)  "Don't let anythin'g worry or distress him," said the doctor. "He won't  live through the night; but he will  probably be quiet and comfortable  up to the end.

He was a young, -soft-hearted  doctor with a pair of Irish eyes that  had a trick of growing misty at times  over the" death-beds of his patients.

A Thought for To-day  As In that which is above Nature,  so ln Nature itself: he that breaks  one physical law is guilty of all. The  whole universe, as It were, takes up  arms against him, and all Nature,  with her numberless and unseen  powers Is ready to average herself  upon him, and on his children after  him, he knows not when nor where.  He, on the other hand, who obeys  the law of Nature with his whole  heart and mind, will find all things  working together to him for good. He  Is helped and befriended alike by the  sun above his head and the dust beneath his feet: because he is obeying  the will and mind of Him who made  sun, and dust, and all things: and  who has given them a law which cannot be broken. ��������� Kingsley.  |h. m. laihg, proprietor g  ^iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiuuiiiiiiiiiiaiii'iiiiiiiiiiiii  WINDSOR HOTEL  The Windsor Hotel is one of the  best furnished hotels in the West.

A corpulent gentleman with a large  appetite entered a mean-looking restaurant, and ordered a chop, and wait-  fad twenty minutes. Then the waiter  reappeared with a plate on which  rested a dab of mashed potatoes, a bit  of meat burnt almost to a cinder, out  of which omorged a long, thin piece  of bone.  Tho waltor set It down before the  starving gentleman  and hurried off.  "See here," called the customer, "I  ordered a chop." **  "Yes sir," replied the man, "there  It is."  "Ah, so it is," mused the hungry  man, readjusting his spectacles. "I  thought it was a crack In the plate."

But the landlady knew of no one.  He had lived -in her house for five  years'and always paid her regularly.  Business letters, or what looked like  business letters,' came for him, and  he burned a great deal of oil sitting up far Into the night���������writing,  she believed���������but -beyond that she  knew nothing of .him.  A 'coal fell Into the grate and  startled her from her reverie. She  had been" thinking of the old days,  the days when she had been a happy,  laughing young , thing, loving and  loved of" everyone and without a care  In the .worlds It would bo springtime now in the country, and there  were primroses and violets under the  hedges, and the woods would bo. all  green and leafy. .Their woods! and  now others would be walking In the  narrow paths, and over tho leaf-  strewn mosses where frail anemones  unfolded their buds.  Over the calm, steadfast face there  stole a tear, the lonely descendant of  all those, she had shed long, long ago.  Sho wiped it away with a furtive look  towards the bed. Tho professional  instinct reasserted, Itself; she loved  he"r work and excelled ln It; It was  time for the patient to take his medicine, perhaps the last draught which  would pass his lips till he should  drink of the waters of Lethe and bo  at peace. As she poured the mixture  Into the glass he-opened his eyes and  fixed them on her In a fixed, vacant  gaze.  "Nurse," he said suddenly, "I shall  die to-night."  She gave him, the medicine and  smoothed his pillow before she answered.        -    *  "You will be glad to go?" she asked  quietly.  "Out of this hell? Yes! Whatever  lies beyond it can't be worse. Nurse,  I have spoken to no^ one of what I  have.suffered, to no one in the world.  May I-talk to you a little? It-will ease  me, I think, and you don't know my  name ��������� or hers.

"Listen, I was young and strong  and on tlie high-road .to fame, and I  married the woman I adored, heaven  help me for a blind fool! Yes, I worshipped her,* and'-I thought she worshipped me; but���������pah! there was no  truth or constancy*! in her. She deceived me and we-parted. I never  saw her again in all these fifteen  years, and all the time I've been going  downhill���������you see what I've come to!  I didn't care for fame or money or  anything _else_after she .went .away,  and T lost everything' by decrees.  That's my life-story, nurse. Why, I  believe you're cry-lng! Have you such  a tender heart?"  " "I am not crying; but���������it's"terrible!  Have you never forgiven her? Suppose���������suppose there was some mistake? Suppose you were hasty and'  hurt her too cruelly, and she was  proud and went away without speaking? 'Are you sure you were in the  right? Did you never wonder whether  she were not innocent after all?"  "She had dark blue eyes like yours,"  he said dreamily. "But her face was  round and her hair was dark and  curly. Heaven ��������� or the devil ��������� had  made her very beautiful."  "He must not be excited or the  pain will come back," the woman  kept repeating to herself, and the  nails made deep marks in the flesh  of her clenched hands.   "To tell him  ��������� but he would not forgive ��������� he  would not believe that he was wrong  ��������� and then, the cruel agony!"  The   lamp   began   to   burn    low;  strange shadows danced on the ugly  wall-paper, and a co'd breath seemed  to pass through ihe room. The nurse  rose to look at her watch on'the chest  of drawers. There was a small cracked looking-glass over it, and as she  passed she caught a glimpse of her  own reflection. No wonder he had  not recognised her, she thought with  a sad smile. Fifteen, years of bitter  pain and hard work had left her little  beauty.  The man's breath was coming' in  gasps, beads of sweat stood out on  the wide brow; he was not of those  to whom the crossing comes easily.  Men of his starr-D fight with death as  they have fought with life, and suffer  horribly. It was midnight now; he  would scarcely live another hour.  "Is the pain coming back?" asked  the nurse, bonding over ��������� him. He  took no notice of her question.  "Yes, she was beautiful," he gasped.  -"I wonder whero she is now?"  Her eyes shone with a light that  was new to them.  "Would you forgive���������If she were  here?" she asked softly.  But he turned his face fretfully to  tho wall.  "No, I would never forgive, not  on my death-bed, not even now!"  The light died out of her eyes and  left her face older and greyer.  "Ah! tho pain!" he groaned. "Nurse,  givo me something!"  She took up the little bottle, tho  contents of which would send him  qulotly and painlessly to rest. Then  she hesitated.  "No, I would never forgive!" he repeated. "She spoilt my life. Ah,  heaven, the pain!"  "Of what use?" the woman said to  herself.   "Ho would never forgive."  She uncorked the bottle and bent  over him,  ' By Martin Lyon  (Copyright by Publishers Press - Ltd.?

The man looked around to see if  ho was alone, and dropped back with  an exclamation of satisfaction. By-  and-by he began to murmur and fret  once more. "What fools women are!"  he growled. "They take an abstraction and make a god of It; they take a  literature and make .It a fetish. And  what a fool I am to take so 'much  notice of their chatter!"  lie was silent for a time. Then he  resumed his muttering. "Who said  'the Veil of Futurity Is woven by the  hand of Mercy'? Stuff! I should liko  to lift it, for one.

"I do not believe the most spiritualized, sensitive Anglo-Saxon could look  five minutes into the unknown.'.'  As he spoke, his white face grew  whiter, and an expression almost of  fear came over it. He shivered for  a moment, then braced himself,  evidently with an effort. He laughed  nervously.  "Something is wrong with me," he  said savagely. "I hope I am not going  to get fever. I had a feeling then that  I could know the future, if I would  ��������� only ��������� that It would be well for  me If I did not will to know. It's  horribly uncanny; I can't shake it  off.

Then he was floating in a thick,  heavy atmosphere; now dark ��������� dark  to blackness ��������� now lightening into  transparent blue; sometimes flashing  into silver, and even blazing into a  splendor of gorgeous golden freshness.  Around him, with him, and of him,  were long, spherical gray shapes. He  was conscious of a curious sense of  dispersion ��������� of separation in some  indefinite, indefinable manner, from  himself; and yet he was perfectly  capable of connected thought.  "Can this be an answer to my demand?" he questioned. "Bah! As  vague as all prophecy! Well, we will  ask eleven months." There was no  change. "Well, then, ten ��������� nine ���������  eight ��������� seven six!"  A look of horror seized him. Great  drops of sweat sprang out on his  brow. One might h ave seen the  muscles start and stiffeii in his hands  as he pripped the arms of the chair.  "Five ��������� four ��������� three ��������� two ��������� a  month, yes, a month!" he spoke with  agonized intensity.  The sense of uneasiness was with  him still, but In a modified degree.  He seemed more sentient, more living,  more human. His voice rose to a  shriek. "Take me back to this hour  ��������� to this minute." He was alive  now, but oh! the agony of that revival! Ah, that fierce, deadly grip on  his shoulder! A score of cruel, sharp  points were entering his flesh and  crushing his loins as in a steel trap!  What was-that awful wrenching tug  at his foot? "Ah, mercy! mercy!"  XXX  The first officer reported to the  captain:  "I had been talking to Mr. Chad-  wlck till he finished his cigar.

When I  came back Mr. Cartwright was still  there, and, as I thought he might  get a chil if he slept in tlie open air,  I was going to awake him.  "As I got close to him, I found that  he was talking in his sleep very excitedly. I was just about to, rouse  him when ho sprang out of his chair  with a most dreadful shriek for mercy  and before I could stop him he had  rushed to thc side and jumped overboard.

Last week the Granby mine  shipped 23,479 tons of ore.  Last week the Mother Lode  mine'shipped S,7<10 tons of ore.  Last week the Greenwood  urn'-lter treated 14,040 tons of ore.  The B, 0. Copper Co. has-ordered a filter press for the Napoleon  mine.  During its fiscal year the Greenwood smelter handled G0S,9-J5 tons  of ore, exclusive of coke.  Last year in  eight months  the  Greenwood smelter imported 4.1,-  '500 tons of coke from  the east,  which cost $150,000 moro than the  same amount of local coke.  Thc concentration tests on the  Lone Star ore have so far proved  highly satisfactory, and it is quite  likely that a mill will be erected at  the mine this summer.  For the year ending November  'IO, 1911 the Mother Lode mine  shipped .1-10,029 tons of ore. The  drilling of pillars has been carried  on steadily', anil at the close of the  year some 0,000 holes, aggregating  80,000 lineal feet, had been drilled  ahead of the pillars already blasted.  This advance drilling will materially reduce the cost of mining.  Last year 900 feet of development work was done at Wellington  Camp, and 27,201 tons of ore,ship-  ped to Greenwood. Owing to the  soft nature of the ore and country  rock this mine rec-nires a large  ."'mount of timber which materially  increases the cost of mining.  Active development is in force on  the lower levels, and new ground  will ho explored this spring.  L-iPt year the Napoleon mine  shipped 14,1.14 tons of sulphide  ore which was used at the Greenwood smelter as sulphur flux. The  stripping of the oxide ore body at  this mine has proved the oxide  body to be greater than was expected. The Napoleon mill was  completed last March. The mill  did not work with entire satisfaction causing too much loss in the  tailings, ancl was shut down in  order to inetall a filter press'at a  cost of $5,000. This will be finished and the mill in operation before  the end oi May.  Phoenix again Champions  Phoenix have br-comc champions  of tho Boundary hockey league for  tho second year in succession. Thi*-  was brought about by Greenwood  defaulting a game to Grand Forks  this week.    At the opening of the  league it was agreed that each team  should forfeit 850 to the team with  whom they default a game, bnt as  yet tho monej* is not lorthcoming.  This is the same Green wood  that  has defaulted to Grand   Forks in  previous years, and the same Greenwood that raised several hundred  dollars to import a team to defeat  Phoenix at Kossland carnival, yet  they could -not muster up seven  players to give the locals a game.  Grand Forks not only played'their  games at Greenwood but took large  numbers of excursionists over to  swell  thp, gate receipts.    Phoenix  also gave Greenwood similar treatment   but   received   contemptible  treatment in   return,   Greenwood  only  sending  a  bunch  of kids to  Phoenix and utterly disgusting the  Phoenix players and thoso who had  been looking forward to  seeing a  good game.    Greenwood should ho  forced  to  pay   Grand  Forks  and  Phoenix teams the forfeit money of  $50 each before being allowed into  the Boundary league hockey schedule again.���������Grand Forks Gazette.

Mrs.  Plant is undoubtedly a very line  whist player, an accomplishment  not too common amongst the gentle  sex.

The eight-hour law in California  applies to all persons employed in  underground mines or workings,  or who are employed in smelters or  other institutions for tho reduction  and refining of ores and metals.

With the assurance that a' lead  furnace will be erected at the  Goose Bay smelter, which is to be  built by the Granby Consolidated  Mining & Smelting Co., there is a  prospect of greatly improved facilities for our lead mines to market  their ore. Hitherto we have been  compelled to ship either to Trail  or to TAooma. In the case of the  Trail smelter the railroad charges  from Vancouver has of necessity  been a heavy tax, while to ship to  Tacoma meant the payment of an  equally heavy import duty. _Tow  that the Grauby Co. is about to  operate a lead department at Goose  Bay tho mines in the Portland  Canal district will gain distinct  benefits.���������Stewart Miner.  not only stops a cough but cures  it,*.
