Seven Wonders' of the World
The-Seven Wonders of the ancient

these. _

Why She was Happy
Last summer Louise Closser Hale
author and actress, and Dorothy Donnelly, a sister professional, went to
Europe. On the way across the Atlantic, Mrs. Hale inspired the ac'mira
tion of a handsome boat flirt, -whose
attentions she evaded until one sunny
morning he encountered her in enraptured contemplation of the summer
sea as slie' leaned over the rail. He
annroached, and in propitiatory tones
inrniired:
"What, mav I ask, makes you sr
happy to-day?" And Mi=s Dormellv
from her deek cbnir saw Mrs. Hiil**
look up at him with a beautific smile
and say:
"Because I don't know you."
The chief thing that keeps young
women from wishing they were men
is they couldn't have such nice, long

How the Famous Bivalve Is Secured
In   Prince  Edward   Island.
Richmond Bay, .as you view it from
the northern shore oi Prince Edward
Island, is a big half-circle of blue wat>
������r, with" a.bior-en diameter of islands,
which', besiues aduing a needed touch
oi beauty to* the scene, serve''to make
the wt-ters the best oyster-fishing
groundo in eastern Canada, says' L. J.
iVfiilefl- in a recent article in The Toronto Globe. To be sure, a map of
the Island will,at once show that the
bay io not rounded (the sprawled
amoeba ot the biological text-book
would better describe it), that the"
sharply-defined islands, to be seen
from'the shore are not. trie ones that
play chief pait in making the grounds
���aie and sheltered tor teeming spat,
but this is only the testimony of unimaginative maps;���a half-circle, a
broken diameter of green, and you
have the home of. the Malpeque oyster, one of ihe best the woild pro-
Juees. ���
- You may satisfy your head as to
the truth of the latter with the
knowledge that Prince Edward Island
oysters look highest award at the Exposition" Univeiselle' at" Paris, in 1900,
where they were in, competition with
the best products ot Europe'and America. But, after all, it is not an affair, of the head. 'On a"fine, crisp
November . afternoon you must drive
down to the. shore of the bay "arid

one of the niudded pairs of fast-
gripped shells which he has just
brought-in; cold and sweet with the

till then, will, you fully realize it.
Vou will also be in a position to say
.he last gastronomic words on ovsters.
��� You will be repaid, too, in other
fashion, for oyster-fishing, as carried
on in Richmond Bay, is essentially
picturesque. . The fishermen keep to
primitive methods, which experience
has shown to be least destructive to.
'jstor-i and beds, "and their most appalling nightmare is the picture of a
pulling tug dragging shovel and bag
jver their grounds and, turning topsy-
:urvy shells and "bed 'beneath! And"
���jo the fccene is quiet; a -few rude
.houses huddle together^on the broken, red banks; plover and sandpiper
wheel and alight and .run daintily
over-the-hard, red'-sand; gulls slide'
lazily through the air. Only the
whistle of a curlew or the cry of a
gull breaks tlie stillness of-the shore.
It is with surprise thut you awake to
the fact that between you and the
diameter in the distance hundreds or
men are silently at work. -
Later, when you are in the midst
if them, you do not wonder- at the
���silence. The very nature of the task
demands it, for it is tlie hardest of
hard work this,���no stubborn dragging of shovel or scoop, but the patient, , hand-chilling, back-breaking
.ask of groping , with. heavy, long-
.irmed tongs for the .shells below and
lifting them up hand 'over hand,
through, perhaps, twenty feet of wa-
ler. It is a lesson in patient industry. The fisherman braces himself
hstride a thwart, and lowers his Dan-
of tongs (two long poles hinged about
three feet from a pair of iron rakes
Mtjne forty inches wide) to the bottom. The water,is-always icily cold,
and may be anywhere from oiie to
three" latHomsT ~"rO&> Curtain Island,
where the choicest oysters are found,
it often runs to four, or four and a
half fathoms. On the bottom, the
���hells are attached'"to the hard sand.
;o one another, or to anything that is
���olid enough to hold their grip. An
uld hand can quickly tell when he
lias landed a good spot. Opening
wide the jaw3 of his tongs, he reaches
well over, pushes the iron teeth firmly down into the bad, brings the
jaws together, and lifts up, loot by
fowt, the heavy load of muddy sand
and oysters.
'How would you like to keep at
that all day?" asked a grizzled old
chap, as he balanced the long pole on
thc gun"wale, and knocked sand' and
mud into the water. "It's not very
bad this afternoon, but, I -tall you,
it's cold work w-ien the "water 'freezes
on your tongs, and the wind blows
through you."
That is the other side of it. It is
undoubtedly picturesque on a fine,
sunijy day; the two or three, hundred
boatjj make a pretty sight in the blue,
particularly when at evening they all
hoist,sail and make in, but, "I tell
you, it's cold work when the water
freezes on your tongs and the wind
blows through you."
PARLIAMENTARY PETS.
Ctrtain British Schoolboys Are Favor,
.   ites   of  Law-rnakers.    *   , ���
* At a time when so much public at
ten'ion is being directed to the Brit-
ish Houses of Parliament it is inter
esting to note how much the boys ol
Westminster School have always
been favored by the two Houses aud
given privileges accorded to' no .-'other
school in the land. Doubtless' this
'has arisen from many things, one being the close intimacy, which h'as always existed between the abbey, the
Parliament,   and   the  school  itself.
It is not widely known that' the
scholars of Westminster School have
the privilege of using the terrace of
the Houses of Parliament on- Sunday
afternoons as practically their own.
They sit and stroll there, watch the
river craft, and enjoy the-cool breezes
in , summer as if legislators" to the
manner born. This special privilege
is believed to come from the Speaker,
for 'the time being, and was probably first given by a Speaker.who was
an old boy. '
Then it is better known, though not
universally, that; the House of Commons reserves six special seats every
day for the Westminster boys. These
seats are in the gallery, and a list is
filled in at the school each' day and
sent to the House giving the names
of the boys who intend to avail themselves of the right. This privilege
is highly prized by the scholars, and
there is much competition for the
seats when any striking debate is under way.
The House of Lords, too, though
it does not retain special scats in this
way for St. Peter's scholars, always
gives the boys every opportunity
when they wish to attend its debates,
as they very often do. When the
Sovereign goes to open Parliament in
state there is a place regularly kept
for the Westminster boys on tho
pavement outside Henry VII.'s chapel right opposite to the entrance of
the House of Lords. Thus the boys
get the very best view of the procession to be had anywhere, and ,they
have it practically. to themselves as
the general public are usually excluded from that portion of the route.
Even at coronations, when special
galleries are kept in the abbey for
the peers and members of Parliament, seats near the peers are always
reserved for at least the forty royal
scholars of the famous school, and
these boys are given the first privilege of saluting the Sovereign by their
acclaims as "King of England" both
when he enters the nave of the abbey
and when the crown is put on his
head by the Archbis��">p of Canter-,
bury, for the peers wait until the
captain and scholars have shouted
"Long live the King" ere they themselves join in the cry, and thus give
the signal for all the world to salute
the new monarch of the British
Empire. -

Tall, fair as a lily, with a cloud of

and outdoor amusements. She rides
well to hounds, and *plays with equal
cleverness at golf, tennis, croquet,
and cricket. The countess seems as
fond of her old-world name, Grace, as
Lady * Brougham is of her _��� more exotic Zoo, and -she -has "Grace"' embroidered on many things���her book-

her white muslin sofa cushions.
While in London the countess gives
brilliant balls and dinners, and, like
Lady Iveagh, prefers the soft light
of wax candles to* the more vivid lustre of electricity. In the evening her
ladyship nearly always wears white
'or pale green. Lord Londesborough
takes a keen interest in the amalejir

at Blankney. The brigade is composed of footmen, gardeners, stablemen, and farm hands. When a fire
occurs Lord Londesborough starts off

A PRINCE FOR CANADA.
C. Frederick Hamilton Argues For the
Affirmative.
"A British nobleman is selected as
Governor-General   by , the   Cabinet uf
the United Kingdom;* presumably he
is a political friend of the party in
power. He assuredly has been a party
man,at home,'and his whole training
up to the moment of his appointment-
has been as a partisan.   He suddenly
is charged  with a monarch's duties;
he becomes our local King, minus the
affectionate loyalty, which is properly reserved for,the King in London.
But monarchy is. a trade in -itself,���
from' the power of recollecting, names
and faces which is said to be a royal
puality, to   that   poise   of the mind
which regards no political parties with
undue favor or resentment; it is a life
training.   It is a trade which is difficult enough  with the aid of all the
advantages  which are denied  to our
Governor-General.    It is only fair to
expect our Governor-General to take
sonic months at least to get into the
necessary frame   of   mind   to which
royalty is trained from infancy.   As
soon as he has learned his trade, as
soon as he has forgotten that he ever
was a partisan as soon as he has begun   to   accumulate   tho   experience
which is a monarch's special personal
qualification,   wo  wisk   him   off;  we
erect an unwritten law forbidding him
again   to  get  foot  upon  our  shores;
and we send him back to the Parliamentary arena of Great Britain, there
possibly to be a partisan once more.
"I regard two things as valuable in
a   working  resident  Kingship;   training, and the mental attitude which it
brings;  and  experience.   The  logical
results of this contention are royalty
and permanence.   Let us have a royal
prince as Governor-General, and let it
be a life appointment.

FOR SALK BY ALL DRUGGISTS
One on  Sir  Henry.
A good joke on Sir Henry Pellatt
is being told iu military circles. On
New Year's morning it ia the custom
of thc ollicers to visit the various
sergeants' messes, and this year when
Sir Henry and some of the officers
of the Queen's Own Rifles visited thc
sergeants' mess of the Mississauga
Horse one of the party entering their
names in the visitors register wrote:
"Col. Sir II. Pellatt, A.D.C." The
Mississauga Horse Sergeants had a
boy watching the registration who announced each officer as ho entered
the reception room. When it came
Sir Henry's turn the boy called out
much to the amusement of all present:
"Color-Sergt. Pellatt of the A.D.C.'b."
Needless to say Sir Henry appreciat
ed tlie joke an much as any one.
A Temperance Funeral.
Unusual directions wero carried out
at Preston in connection with the funeral of William Livesey, aged 93, the
son of Joseph Livesey, a founder of
the tcetotul pledge Temperance advocates were present from every part
of the kingdom. In accordance with
the final wishes of Mr. Livesey, thero
were no flowers, no plumed hearso,
no hatbands, nor any kind of funeral
display, the hearso selected being
without glass sides, so that the coffin
would not be exposed to view and
hats wero not removed at the graveside.

wrench of loyalty, can play their part
in the affairs of any continent of the
world.   Our American cousins are in
a continental ring-fence; we are free
of the   world   and   of world-politics.
This  advantage,   already  perceptible,
will  grow  as   Imperial   organization
marches forward,,and as Canada takes
an increasingly active part in the affairs of the Empire.  Now, bf this subtle, difference in the two^ North American citizenships, the presence of royalty at Ottawa would be an outward
and visible sign:   It would impart to
the texture of our national business
that warm and gracious personal note
which makes a monarchy an attractive method of  Government, the absence  of  which   makes a republic a
cold, bare, and uninteresting method.
"Certain of our  private and confidential bits of business should be expedited by the'presence of royalty at
our capital.   Here one is dealing with
matters which are jealously guarded
for a couple of generations at least;
but it seems within   the   bounds   of
probability to held that a certain proportion  of  our  public  affairs,  never
large, always appreciable, and sometimes  important,  depends  upon  personal considerations.  The subject does
not lend itself to full or explicit discussion, but at least it may be said
that it should be no disadvantage to
Canada  to   have  as   her  medium  of
communication with the United Kingdom a royal personage  whom every
British statesman would regard with
thorough  respect,  who would be the
near  relative of our  King and  Emperor, and who would be the blood
relation   of   nearly   every.   European
monarch.   We could count upon our
royal   prince   being   more   Canadian
than the Canadians; his whole interest would be bound up in the growth,
prosperity, dignity and glory of  his
principality; and as our part upon the
great stage increases it should prove
n_icreasingly_us_eful. to have devoted-to
"our""service a personage of real European influence.   Our views would be
sure of getting to headquarters; a proportion of our frets  are due to  the
suspicion that our representations do
not    reach    headquarters,    but    are
smothered on the way.
"Of ways, means and persons I
have little to say. The daily press is
busy now with the discussion of one
august name; I am content to argue
for the general principle. The question of ways and means is simplicity
itself. Let a royal prince be nominated as Governor-General. On the expiry of the six-year term, if all has
cone well, rennnoint him. Continue
the process until it seems convenient
to change to a life tenure. As for title,
it will be easy to leave it as it is."���

The Postage Stamp Inventor
Who invented the pot-tagc stamp? A
writer in Chambers' .Journal points
out that the inventor of the "adhesive
postage stamp" as undoubtedly Rowland Hill. In 18,17 he proposed the
use of "u bit of paper just large enough to bear the stamp, and covered
at the back with a glutinous wish,
which the bringer might, by the ap-
plication of a little moisture, attach
to tlie back of the letter." No evidence
that will bear the slightest scrutiny,
we are told, has beon produced to
support the various prior claims to
the invention of the adhesive postage
stamp.

Ihere  are still 25 different editions of this condemned journal in print. Send 10 cents  and get one or $2 50 and get the bunch.  E.-T. LOWERY,  Greenwood, B. C.  Twenty years ago, Jake Cobaugh  was a familiar .figure around the  camps of Kootenay. He obtained  an interest in the Silver. King mine  for doing some assaying. He sold  that interest for about $25,000 and  spent the money like a crown  prince at a Methodist tea-meeting.  He was in Bossburg recently, aud  the Herald says:���������  Notwithstanding the remarkable  luck which has followed him l.e  has failed to accumulate a large  portion of worldly good.?. He sold  his interest in theBonaza for $3000.  Ho was cheated out of the major  portion of hi3 immense holding in  the, Silver King mine, after the  majority had refused to come to  come to terms regarding the sale  "of the mine. 'The-miues -which  Cobaugh has located are today  worth several millions of dollars,  but the kind hearted old man is  not enjoying the fruits of his* marvellous luck.  * The  GREENWOOD  Is situated in the heart of the city and -.-within  stepping distance of all the banks, restaurants,  express, stage, telegraph offices, etc. The building is heated with hot water and has a radiator  in every room.

People  lika to hear tales of wonderful  hunting and the thrilling fights we  went through, but start to tell of  the hardships and privations .that  we. &H suffered and nobody cares to  listen; yet our lives were aboat  ninety per cent, hardship and privation. The days of hunger ? Oh,  yes! there were times when we  nearly starved! Buffalo were  never bo plentiful as in the story  books, and we never cared to travel  very far without provisions.  "Then there were the sleepless  nights, when we were afraid to  build a camp fire, or even to take  our half-frozen fingers off the  triggers of our rifles, and these  nights would be followed by loDg  days of thirst and fighting against  an unseen foe. It was tevcr the  fun that the dime-novel-reading-  boy thought it was.  "But I  will say  that   having  been   born   in   the  country   and  brought up to this kind of thing,  we did not suffer from these hardships as much as men would today.   The old frontiersman accepted physical privation as a matter  of course in his life,  and neevr  grumbled or complained of his fate.  Every one of the, old frontiersmen  expected to be killed in a fight  with his eternal foes, the Indians,  some day, but on the theory that  a live man is better than a dead  one,   they   did  not  go  courting  death as some of our romancers  would have us to believe.  "It was the code of the Indian  fighter to take no chance that was  unnecessary.    Dare-devil bravery,  may be all, at times, very well fori  soldiers of some civilized nation,  but it was always foolish on the  frontier.     "What  good   would-a  scout be if he got killed every time  he Went out to have a look at the  conntry in front ^"--Colgate Baker,  in the New York 'Itfiviow.  A witness in a railroad case,  asked to tell in his own way how  the accident happened, said:  "Well, Ole and I was walking  down the track, and I heard a  whistle, and I got off the track, and  the train went by, and I got back  on the track, and I didn't see Ole;  but I walked along, and pretty  soon I seen Ole's hat, and I walked  on, and seen one of Ole's legs, and  then I seen one of Ole's arms; and  then another leg- arid then over on  one side Ole's head, and I says,  'My God! Something muster happen to Ole!' "  Greenwood, is. the home for workingmeu of all nations. - It is  convenieut to tha smelter ou the hill.

Lofstad,   Proprietor  Quartz Near Dawson.  ' "Work on the pioneer quartz  mine, which is being prosecuted by  Captain Charles E. Miller and  other Dawson men, is progressing.  The tunnel is in more than 500  feet. Owing to itB great length,  there is some difficulty in keeping  the gas out, but a device has been  arranged which is a great help.  It is expected that 25 feet more  will bring the tunnel to a point  beneath the shaft, now down 75  feet. The tunnel is at the 140-foot  level, meaning that in order to  connect the tunnel and the shaft,  considerable more work will have  to be done on the shaft.  1  1  4i  >*M  a  In Good Toronto.  Police Magistrate Denison   has  demonstrated     that    the     word  "scabs,"   as applied to employes  acting as substitutes for strikers,  cannot be used.    Two men have  been fined by him  twenty dollars  and   thirty   dollars   respectively,  with the option of thirty dayB in  jail,  for applying  the epithet to  strikebreakers at the Continental  Costume Company.    "I want it to  be distinctly understood that I object to that word,"  he stated .decisively before imposing the flue.  ./_ GREENWOOD/ 'B.r^.J/^  ^li$lW3*J&'^^  Early Risers.  Birds get up early in the morning; and they havo to retire early  or  they, could   not  do   it.   The  blackbird is tho last to go to bed;  the robin is awake and singing at  at half past two.    Fifteen minutes  later the thresh begins; and one  after another the feathered troubadours start in, uutil at four all are  at it.    At five-thirty it is time for  breakfast; and the early worm has  to 'pay one of; the numerous bills  presented to the silent wigglers of  tho lawn.  Far away fields are usually thought to be green.  This is probably why so many people in the  Boundary are constantly buying real estate and  stocks far from the district in which they live.  Why not put some of your speculating money in  ventures within a few' miles of your own door, and  benefit yourself and the country in which you .  reside and make money ?  The Argo Mining and Tunnel Co. of Greenwood  is organized under the laws of British Columbia,  with a capital stock   of. .1125,000,   divieed  into  500,000 shares at 25 cents each, non-personal liability.   Adjoining Greenwood the company own a  largo number of valuable claims, with high-grade  gold and copper ore showing on the surface.   The  company is now engaged in running a 3.000-foot  tunnel to tap all these leads at great depth. Every  indication is favorable to the striking of valuable  deposits of ore, and the time to invest is now,  Soen as ore is encountered at great depth.the price  of stock will ascend rapidly and the chances of,  making big money out of a small investment will  not be so good.   The time to speculate is when  things are beginning.   The success of this big  tunnel means great wealth for the investors and  increased prosperity for the entire district  Investors and, visitors to the district are cordially  invited to inspect the properties and view the work  being clone in the tunnel.
