Tho men who are  leaving are Canadians, as a rule ;  and- they are going to Alaska,  where conditions are reported better  than on the Grand Trunk-Pacific.  If the' Morgan-Guggenheim'syndicate can get a railway built in  Alaska by station men at the rate  of SI. 20 a cubic yard for solid rock,  with 10 per cent, added for superintendence, is it not strange that  the people of Canada should pay  Foley, Welch & Stewart 81.60 a  cubic 3*nrd for solid rock on the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway. The  difference is 28 cents a cubic yard  in fayor of the Morgan-Guggenheim -syndicate. There is another  difference : In Alaska the station  men who do the work get paid for  tho work they do. Here the station men who do tho work get experience and an occasional plug of  tobacco.���������Prince  En pert  Empire.

Charles Dempster of this city returned on Saturday last from the  New York, where he had been consulting with his principals of tho  Fife Mines, Jjtd. This company  has becirorgani/.'jd by a wealthy  New York syndicate with a capital  of '���������2,000.000 to operate mine3 in  this district.. "It has already acquired--the Jlat.lieJBrown mineral  claim in this camp and the Dyke-  head group of -four..-claims at Fife-  on the line of the Culumbia and  Western railway, betweeu Cascade and Castlegar. Besides, Mr.  Dempster has purchased the Bich-  mond claim in the south belt from  Samuel Forteath, on another account.  Mr. Dempster was seen yesterday and said thut he had a syndi-  coto behind him that was well supplied with mone}* with which to  carry on all necessary development  work. Tie is general superintendent and mining director for the  company. On the Dykehead group,  at a distance of 305 feet from the  portal of the tunuel, which is run  on the ledge, the ore shoot has  been struck. "It has already been  crosscut for over 33 feet, and there  is no sign of a hanging wall. Fifteen men are at work and a switchback road is now being built for a  distance of half a mile to connect  the group with the railway at Fife,  Tho present workings are only  2,000 feet from the station at Fife.  The ore runs from 3 to 5 per cent,  in copper and from $i to ������1S in  gold.���������Bossland Miner.  Canada's Buffalo Herd.  Preparations for the shipment  from Montana into the big now  buffalo park at Wainwright, of the  secoud portion of the huge buffalo  herd, purchased by the Dominion  government two years ago, have  been completed by Howard Douglas, commissioner of Dominion  piirks, says the Winnipeg Tribune.  Mr. Douglas will Ieavo shortly for  Montana, after visiting tho new  park at Wainwright.  The contract with the Domiuiou  government calls for the delivery  of the 300 head of buffalo, which  comprise the second shipment, at  the park in May,, and Mr. Douglas  has no reason to doubt but that  the shipment will bo made on  time. Tho buffalo will be shipped  into the park via Saskatoon and  Wainwright, tho G. T. P. lino into  Wainwright coming within half a  mile*of tljo park.  '���������Michael Pablo,'the Mexican who  ho successfully carried through the  delivery of tho first portion of the  herd, 450 head, at the Lunont  park, will also superintend this  shipment, and will bring with him  six Mexican cowboys. Tho buffalo  will bo shipped iu a train of 21  cars specially constructed with  soparato stalls for each animal,  and with trap doors in tho roof to  facilitate the feeding of the animals.

Here is a machine that will bore  a tunnel from Greenwood to Phoenix in six months. It.is called the  Sigafoos Tunneling Machine:  The machine is 20 feet long, 8  feet in diameter and weighs 58,000  pounds. It consists of two frame  heads, connected by a .hollow 6-  inch center shaft and eight brace  rods. There are ten pulverizing  stamps, so arranged as to pulverize the whole breast of au 8-foot  tunnel. Tho machine leaves no  core. All this material is crushed  fine enough to be flushed out by  the streams of water which are  constantly fed through pipes to the  cutting face.  Each stamp consists of a 4-inch  hhaft, upon the front eud of which^  is' the stamp-head,  2  feet in di~  a meter, about 5  inches thick and  weighing 48 pounds.    On the rear  end of each shaft is a tappet, such  as is used on a regular-stamp-mill.  The total weight of the stamp-head  and shaft is 1,720 pounds.  ^A-.. revolving, cam engages .,the.  tappet and draws the'stampback,"  compressing a powerful spring upon  the   stamp   shaft,   which   springs  back when released and  produces  a rotating  grinding blow, varying  from  200   to   4,000   pounds. , As  each stamp delivers from 80 to 200  blows a minute, the total amount  of power expended per minute on  the breast of the tunnel or shaft is  from 1,600,000 to 0,000,000, varying with the speed of the machine.  Electric power is used to operate  the device. From 50 to 80 horse  power suffice for all usual work.  The rate at which the machine advances is about 125 feet a day  through tho hardest rock, with  correspondingly greater speed in  softer varieties. With this machine and two men the work of 100  men can bo done, and done far better than by the old method of drilling and blasting. The old method  produced a ragged, uneven hole,  and the blasts loosened rocks which  endangered life. The machine  bores a perfectly round, smooth  8-foot tunnel. There is no blasting, no powder or fuse requisite,  no disturbance of surrounding formations. Tho tunnel is also ventilated by the water, which is  driven in under pressure and releases its air at the breast. Not  only this, but tho machine pulverizes the rock, ore, etc., and do-  livers it back through the pipe,  mixed with water, all prepared for  amalgamation or concentration.  The stamp-mill is, therefore, where  tbio machine is used, a thing unknown in tlio past.  Iu operation tho machine constantly rotates, thus bringing the  stamp-heads into contact with all  parts of the breast. From the rotary motion is derived au automatic feed, by means of the eight  pairs of wheels or trunnions at  the sides of the machine. The  machine revolves on these trunnions, which, when properly adjusted, force it forward against tho  breast, much as tho thread of an  augur forces the point in.  The whole operation is automatic. As before said, two men  to watch the machine and the  motor, repair possible damage and  regulate the feed, can do the work  of 100 men with tho old-style  methodf. Tho Sigafoos . tunnel  borer is, on the whole, one of tho  big epoch markers in the advance  of uian's conquests over nature.  The White IIouso Cafe in Nelson is next to the postollice, right  in the heart of tho city and is  noted for, its excellent coffeo and  shrot orders. Visitors to the city  should not fail to drop in aud have  a meal cooked by white labor.

The salary" of the mayor is to be  increased to 61,000 a year, and for  the first time the aldermen will  be remunerated by a salary of $20  a month. It is about time for  grafting to commence in that city.  There aro more old men in Kamloops than in any town of its size  in the province.  The "Wheal Tamar mine, located  six miles south of Kamloops, is  being operated with a double shift  of men, work having been started  early last week. A tunnel three  hundred feet long has been run  and good copper ore has been located. The ore averages four and  a half per cent and was found on  the 200-foot level. Operations will  be continued on an elaborate scale.  Stuart Henderson, M. P. P., has  taken an option on the North  Thompson coal lands, above the  upper Indian reserve, and the first  payment was made' last week.  Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir is  said to be interested in the deal.  The opening up of the coal lands  will mean much toKamloops and  district, as it. ia understood that  extensive-operations will be'urider-"  taken.  No "doubt there is some feeling  between Michel and New Michel.  The two towns aro close together,  and may be one some day.  Larry O'Brien died in Trout  Lake City last month.  B.

The Fife Mines.  Charles Dempsterof this city re"  turned on Saturday last from the  New York, where he had been consulting with his principals of tho  Fife Miiic*, Ltd. This company  lias boon organized by a wealthy  New York syndicate'wiih a capital  of $2,000,000" to, operate minc3 in  this district. 'It baa already" acquired, the JIattie Brown mineral  claim in this camp and the Dyke-  bead group of -fpuE claims at Fife-  cm the line of the Columbia and  Western railwnj*, between Cascade and Castlegar. Besides, Mr.  Dempster has purchased the Richmond claim in the south belt from  Samuel Forteath, on another account.

On the Dykehead group,  at a distance of 303 feet from the  portal- of tho tunnel, which is run  on the ledge, the ore shoot has  been struck. "It has already been  crosscut for over 35 feet, and there  is no sign of a hanging wall.

'If the Morgan-Guggenheim'syndicate can get a railway built in  Alaska by station men at the rate  of SI. 20 a cubic yard for solid rock,  with 10 per cent, added for superintendence, is it not strange that  the people of Canada should pay  Foley, Welch & Stewart 81.60 a  cubic yard for solid rock on the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway. The  difference is 28 cents a cubic yard  in fayor of the Morgan-Guggenheim syndicate. There is another  difference : In Alaska the station  men who do the work get paid for  the work they do.

Preparations for the shipment  from Montana into.the big new  buffalo park at Wainwright, of the  secoud portion of the huge buffalo  herd, purchased by the Dominion  government two years ago, have  been completed by Howard Douglas, commissioner of Dominion  purks, says the Winnipeg Tribune.  Mr, Douglas will leave shortly for  Montana, after visiting the new  park at "Wainwright.;.  The contract with the Domiuiou  government calls for the delivery  of the 300 head of buffalo, which  comprise tho second shipment, at  the park in May,, and Mr. Douglas'  has no reason to doubt but that  the shipment will bo made on  time. The buffalo will be shipped  into the park via Saskatoon and  Wainwright, tho G. T. P. lino into  Wainwright coining within half a  tnile*of tho park.

Taylor Bishop, proprietor, employs all white help.  A Great Machine.  Here is a machine that will bore  a tunnel from Greenwood to Phoenix iu six months. It .is called the  Sigafoos Tunneling Machine:  The machine is 20 feet long, 8  feet in diameter and weighs 58,000  pounds. It consists of two frame  heads, connected by a.hollow G-  inch center bhaft and eight brace  rods. There are ten pulverizing  stamps, so arranged as to pulverize the whole breast of au 8-foot  tunnel. The machine leaves no  core. All this material is crushed  line enough to be flushed out by  tho streams of water which are  constantly fed through pipes to the  cutting face.  Each stamp consists of a 4-inch  hhaft. upon the front end of which  is' the stamp-head, 2 feet in di-~  a meter, about 5 iuches thick and  weighing 48 pounds. On the rear  end of each shaft is a, tappet, such  as is .used on a regular stamp-mill.  The,total weight of the.'stamp-head  and shatt is 1,720 pounds.  _..���������A. revolving,cam engages the  tappet and draws the stamp back,"  compressing a powerful spring upon  the stamp shaft, which .springs  back when released and produces  a rotating grinding blow, varying  from 200 to. 4,000 pounds. .As  each stamp delivers from 80 to 200  blows a minute, the total amount  of power expended per minute on  the breast of the tunnel or shaft is  from 1,G00,000 to 0,000,000, varying with the Rpced of the machine.  Electric power is used to operate  the device. From 50 to SO horse  power suffice for all usual work.  The rate at which the machine advances is about 125 feet a day  through tho hardest rock, with  correspondingly greater speed in  softer varieties. With this machine and two men the work of 100  men can be done, and done far better than by the old method of drilling and blasting. The old method  produced a ragged, uneven .hole,  and the blasts loosened rocks which  endangered life. The machine  bores a perfectly round, smooth  8-foot tunnel. There is r.o blasting, no powder or fuse requisite,  no disturbance of surrounding formations. Tho tunnel is also ventilated by tho w;ater, which is  driven in under pressure aud releases its air at the bivast. Not  only this, but tho machine pulverizes the rock, ore, etc., and delivers it back through the pipe,  mixed with water, all prepared for  amalgamation or concentration.  The stamp-mill is, therefore, where  thi3 machine is usod, a thing unknown in the past.  In operation the machino constantly rotates, thus bringing the  stamp-heads into contact with all  parts of the breast. From the rotary motion is derived au automatic feed, by means of the eight  pairs of wheels or trunnions at  the sides of the machino. The  machine revolves on these trunnions, which, when properly adjusted, force it forward against tho  breast, much as tho thread of an  augur forces the point in.  The whole operation is automatic, As before said, two men  to watch the machine and the  motor, repair possible damage and  regulate tho feed, can do tho work  of 100 men with tho old-style  method1*. The Sigafoos , tunnel  borer is, on the whole, one of the  big epoch markers in the advance  of man's conquests over nature.

Just at this season when the cold  dry winter is giving way to a milder  yet more humid season, the germs of  rheumatism, sciatica, and allied ailments come upon their victims with  renewed force.  As soon as you feel any deep-seated  pain in the joints, back, wrists or  elsewhere, place a liberal supply of  Zam-Buk on the fingers, or on the  palin of the hand, and rub it well into the part affected. The penetiating  power of this "embrocation-balm" is  exceedingly great, and once having  reached the. seat of the pain it removes it speedily. , It also ends the  stiffness which is so unpleasant.  Frequent rubbings of the afflicted  parts with Zam-Buk will not only  drive out all pain, reduce swelling,  etc., but will strengthen skin and  tissues and enable them to resist cold  and clamp. Thc following case will  show how Zam-Buk brings ease to  those tortured  by rheumatism.   '  Mr. P. G. Wells, of 338 Ogden street,  Fort William, Out., says:���������''Following  my duties in attending to passenger  trains I often got wet through with  rain and steam (the latter in winter),  This with hours of duty in icehouses  in summer was no doubt the causa of  my contracting rheumatism in both  knees," left arm and shoulder. 'Phis  got so bad that I could no longer  work, and was laid off on three different occasions for several weeks,  during which I was under the treatment of my doctor. I seemed to get  little-if any bettor, no matter what I  tried, and this was my state when  Znni-Buk was recommended to me. I  laid in a supply, and to my great joy  it began to cure me. I rubbed it well  in every night, and when a few boxes  had been used, found I was free again  irom the pain and stiffness of rheumatism. I have had no more trouble  from the disease and unhesitatingly  recommend Zam-Buk to all who suffer  from rheumatism, muscular stiffness, etc."  Zam-Buk is also a sure cure for eczema, ring-worm, ulcers, abscesses  piles, bad leg, suppurating wounds,  cuts, burns, bruises, Chapped hands,  cold cracks, and all skin injuries and  diseases.

He  will then be the youngest rear-admiral  the fleet has had for many years,  for he will not celebrate his 38th  birthday until Jan. 17 next. His  rapid advance has been due to particularly distinguished war service. It  was in Egypt twelve years ago that  he was suddenly called upon to take  command of the gunboat flotilla, and  showed great skill and courage against  the enemy, winning the D.S.O. During the Boxer troubles he commanded  the Barfleur, and led a splendid attack with a couple of hundred bluejackets against two Chinese guns,  which were causing a gTeat deal of  trouble.

Lord Pirrie, the new Knight of-St.  Patrick chosen by the King, in succession to the Earl of Rosse, bears_ a  name writ large in the maritime history of the age .and in the industrial  annals of the Empire. The great firm  , of which he is head���������Messrs.. Har-,  land and Wolff, shipbuilders and  engineers, Belfast, with1 'which is  associated the firm of John Brown  and Co., of Sheffield and Clydebank  ���������represents the largest shipbuilding  and engineering combination in the  world. ��������� Lord Pirrie himself is an  Irishman by family'and personal and  industrial associations, but���������to use an  Irishism���������he wns born out of his native country. His family have long  been resident in Ulster, but he himself first saw the light in Quebec in  1847. After the death of his father-  in the year following���������he was taken  to Ireland, and in due course receivt������d  his education in tho Belfast Academical Institution. At the ngo of 15 he  was apprenticed to the firm of Har-  land and Wolff, which oven then was  coming into prominence, Lord Pirrie became a partner in the firm and  finally rose to be head of tho great  company.   -  While Lord Pirrie has gained fame  for himself nnd his ships, ho has  boon tho greatest benefactor that Belfast and Ulster over had. Tho suburb of Ballymacarrctt, which thirty  thirty years ngo had a population of  only a few thousands, housed most  wretchedly amid insanitary surroundings, can now claim nearly 100,000,  and no small part of that increase  i3 duo to tho employment given by  Messrs. Harland and Wolff. The  wages paid by the firm amount to  about ������20,000 weekly, and from present indications even that sum will  soon be exceeded. On an average  10,000 hands are. employed in the  works, and tho number sometimes  rises to 12,000. It is needless to say  that the same enterprise which  marks his shipbuilding is displayed  in the engineering works which have  been added, and which are models  in management and equipment, and  in the readiness with which they can  be utilized for all purposes and all  emergencies. In addition to their  contracts for the mercantile marine  in all parts of the world, Lord Pirrie's  firm have done extensive engineering  work for the navy.  Of late years Lord Pirrie has differed in politics from the majority of  his fellow-citizens, but this circumstance has not altered their appreciation of his services. He owes not a  little of his social success to Lady  Pirrie, whom he married in 1879.  During the two years in which he  was Lord Mayor of Belfast���������years  which were characterized by magnificent hospitality���������she discharged tlie  duties of her position in a manner  which won the respect of all the citizens. It was during his Lord Mayoralty that the Victoria Hospital was  established and endowed in Belfast,  and the success of the scheme was in  great measure owing to the energy,  philanthropy, and popularity of Lady  Pirrie. Lord Pirrie was also high  sheriff of Down for one year, and  high sheriff of Antrim for another, so  that not only thc city of Belfast, but  the two counties in which it is situated, did him honor. Belfast further  testified its admiration of his character by making him its first honorary  freeman.  HALF THE TOIL  of household work is taken  away when Sunlight Soap is  brought Into the home.

A characteristic of the'famous editor of The London Times was the extraordinary thoroughness of his editorial revision. He watched with the  utmost care not merely the substance  and the general argument of an article, but every detail of expression. He  could correct commas at 3.30 a.m.,  and would write one of his brilliant  notes at that hour to warn a writer  against an incorrect expression. I remember his once writing to me at that  hour to protest against my using the  word "action" to describe an act.  "Action," he said, "is properly used  only of a military action or an action  at law." I think he was wrong, on  the authority of the Scriptural expression: 'The Lord is a God of knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed"; but the vigilance which could  insist on such a point in the heat and  haste of editing illustrates the inde-  fatiable conscientiousness of his work.  ���������The Dean of Canterbury in The  Cornhill.

Sailing Through a Volcano Crater In  thc Aegean Sea.  In the Aegean sea a vessel may sail  Into the top of a crater, and, though it  Is hard to find anchorage thero, yet a  mere sail through Is appreciated greatly by captains, because it cleanses the  bottom of the ships ��������� from marine  growth.  , More than 2,000 years ago the isle of  Santorln was split in half by an earthquake, with the result that what was  once the crater of a volcano is now a-  crescent shaped harbor. Two glistening white towns of Thera' and St.  Nicholas are perched on the summit of  the steep cliffs, whose dark and dismal  hue Is similar to that of the top of Vesuvius. Standing out against the sky  are large numbers of windmills, with  many sails, arranged In a perfect circle. These are evidently employed for  crushing-the olives, which, along with  the terraced vines, are the staple product of the island. The Santorln wine is  of excellent quality and is highly appreciated lu the Levant.  Between the main island on the east  and the smaller, Theresia, on the west,  are the three small Kaumene islands,  all of which have'come Into existence  since the original earthquake, while the  largest of the three was "born from  the sea" less than 200 years ago, showing that the center of the old volcano  hasstlll'a certain amount of activity.  The water in the harbor into which  the sulphurous streams from this volcanic island rain has a peculiar property which completely cleans off  growths of every kind from the bottom  of any ship.

The competition is nearly 200 years  old. Mr. .Wm. Glanvill, a one-time  member of the Inner Temple, although a man of law, was evidently  an eccentric. His will stipulated that  he should be buried 18 feet deep on  the north side tff the church, and .the  sum of ������30'per annum was set aside  for five "prayer boys," each of whom  was to receive 40s. The task of the  prayer boys is not a light one. On  the morning of Feb. 2 they have to  stand bareheaded around the tomb,  recite from memory tho Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, Apostles'  Creed, read thc 15th chapter of the  First Epistle to the Corinthians, and  then .write from dictation in a legible  hand two verses from the same chapter,  Tlie grave beinr; on the north side,  thero is no shelter from the biting  wind, and manv a compelitor���������perhaps an expert scholar���������when numbed  with the ,cold lias his discomfiture  ridded to by contact wilh the cold marble.

Lately, however, a small tent  lias been drawn around the tomb to  act as a wind-screen for the juveniles,  and the reading and writing exercises  are conducts in the schoolroom.  Some of thc boys in (he recent competition, almost stammering through  the cold, were secretly rejoicing that  it fell to their lot to repeat the short  Commandments, but a moment later  the judges were calling upon them to  show their proficiency in the knowledge of the second and fourth.

Any number of them can make  some kind of noise.  The common red gurnard" of the  British coasts, on being hooked and  hauled rudely out of the briny, will  grunt loudly" and indignantly, as a  fisherman will tell you. It is a  strange croaking sort of noise, such as  one might expect a young rook to  make.  Then there is a fish called the but-  terman���������why, nobody knows���������which  is found off the Scotch coast-line.  This fish, which is a fat and comfortable looking beast about a foot long,  as a rule, makes a distinct hooting  noise from the back of his throat  when landed in a net or caught on a  long line. A netful of these fish���������  though they are rather rare���������is sometimes caught, and when they are hauled in the chorus of sharp, siren-like  hoots is very startling to a stranger  to the coast.  But in Ceylon there is a shell-fish  ���������a kind of mussel���������which positively  sings. In still weather, when the  water has ebbed away from the  mussel-beds for a few hours, these  shell-fish can be heard producing a  long, low fluting sound. How they  do it no one knows, but they certainly make a quite distinct attempts at  singing, and as they have no throats  they must produce the sound by some  manipulation of their double shells.  The sound is low and not at all unpleasant, but rather swi*et to the c-ar  on a still summer's night.  Only the uninformed endure the  agony of corns.

Grenville Kleiser, a Torontonian who some ten years ago took  up his residonco in the United States,  has won some attention through a  new scheme of his own devising���������  that of teaching, people to tell funny  stories. Mr. Kleiser commenced bis  career in Toronto,in the early nineties as a concert elocutionist, and  later became for a season private  secretary to the late Richard Mansfield. Then he returned to Toronto  and commenced the teaching of expression and conducted an entertainment bureau. He is now established  in New York, and among his activities is that of "conductor" of the  Public Speakers'"Club.  The scheme which he put forward  a week, or so ago is so unique that it  has engaged the attention of the  press, whose humorists seems to be'  sceptical as to the outcome. A reporter went to hear Mr. Kleiser lecture  .to his class in extempore humor, and  says that it numbered at least eighty  persons. It more than intimates that  if Mr. Kleiser succeeds in turning  them into humorous individuals he  will have performed a task greater  than the labors of Hercules. It is  stated that they were of all ages,  nationalities, and previous occupations. After Mr. Kleiser had told  sixty funny stories in the space of  au hour���������charting them on a blackboard as he did so to show that there  were only twenty-three original stories  in the world, the balance being variations therefrom���������he invited his pupils  to the platform one by one, each to  tell a funny story of his own, and  corrected his method when it was  bad.  The chief admonition that he gave  was not to tell the point before you  have told the narrative. He also advised his pupils not to try to tell a  story of which they had forgotten  the point. The pupil' exhibition  seems to have beon rather, a painful  episode, and Mr. Kleiser showed that  he is not devoid of humor himarilf  by closing the proceedings with the  remark:  "Now, I think that you will believe me when I maintain the antiquity of all jokes."

Lack of clothes makes for  morality, according to the theory  of Arthur George l-omeroy Collen,  son of the retired English officer,  Lieutenant-General Sir Edward  Collen, for forty yea'-s a resident of  British East Africa.  If American women wore less  clothes they would be more modest,  declared the Englishman.  Tlie women of Africa wear very  little raiment and they are the  most moral women in the world.  Clothes make the savage women  shy and coquettish. I have noticed  that in the savage garb, which consists of a strip of bark or a bit of  woollen blanket, they aro as unconscious of their charms as children' A white shirtwaist and a  skirt to which the missionary introduces them, seems to sow tho  first seeds of vanity. As soon a*  ib is explained to them that they are  without sufficient covering, it has  the most demoralizing ellecb upon  them. They become vain, flirtatious and conceited when they are  invested with apparel.  I think an ornamental purity  brigade, with an African woman as  missionary, would help occidental  morals and manners.
