The coroner's jury empaneled  to enquire into the death of Hugh  Stevens,- crushed to -"death by the  cage coming dowu on him at the  Mother Lode miue last week, re-  turnpcl a verdict that ''death was  caused by failure to put on brake."  The man Jennings who is said  to have confessed to the murder of  O. ��������� L." Thomet, was brought to  Greenwood Saturday by ���������Officers  Aston and Darraugh. The preliminary hearing will take place  Saturday before Stipendiary Magistrate McMynn.  George D. San key, formerly of  Greenwood, died at the- Dolores  mines, -Mexico, September Hth,  from the effects of cyanide fumes.  The cyanide was used iu the bunk-  house to kill bedbugs.

Miss McKenzie, who for some  time kept a grocery store on government street, died yesterday in  the hospital from typhoid fever.  She leaves an agecf mother and  several brothers. John is in Greenwood, George in Hazelton and  Kenneth in Fernie. The funeral  will take place upon Friday or  Saturday.  Monday evening the new chemical nozzle was given a test by A.  D. Hallett. The form of a house  was built out of packing boxes  and set on fire. Alter the fire had  been burning for some time, the  judges���������F. W. McLaine, E. H.  Mortimer and E. T. Wickwire���������  gave orders to commence operations. In 5S seconds the fire w*s  extinguished.  The   Conservative   organization  meeting held last  Friday evening  was   well    attended,   their   being  representatives present from every  portion  of Greenwood riding, and  all seemed confident of the election  of Martin  Burrell.    Tho meeting  was enthusiastic and harmonious*.  A.   campaign committee   was appointed   with   W.    B.    Fleming,  president of    tho   association   as  chairman, and Dr. "W*. E. Spankie,  secretary.  Near Bull creek Dick Nicholson  shot a deer and hung it on a tree.  In tho night a cougar came along  and packed the deer about 100  yards, and then eating a portion  of it disappeared in . the forest.  When Dick came.for his deer tho  next day ho ran into a fomale^bear  and two cubs. Ho killed the trio  and brought tho meat to Greenwood where several old-timers, including Scatt McRae, had a feast  for several days. Scott avers that  ho was raised on boar meat.  ings then in progress   to reorganize the company without  liquidation. ^September 30th Mr.  Justice  Morrison granted an order  in Vancouver to wind up the estate  and appoint a provisional  liquidator.    On   Tuesday   Chief   Justice  Hunter appointed P. F. Roussaas  provisional liquidator.    The ,men  in   Phoenix aud Boundary Falls  who have not been paid their wages  have retained a legal adviser, but  under the provisions of the Winding Up Act it is not likely they can  do anything at present,  although  all concerned with the foreclosure  are desirous that the men should-  obtain their wages at  ouce, if any  arrangements can  be nude to that  effect.    By an order from the court  some ten or twelve men are kept  working at the mines and smelter.  It is  not known  how  the stockholders   will   come out,   but*this  week plans are under way in New  York to reorganize the entire concern and place it upon' a sound  working basis.    While at. present  the disaster to this company may  vbe.regrettable, it is better for the  future of the district to put it out  of misery,  and not keep it financially limping along like a lame  dog at a funeral.    When it rises  again it is to be hoped that its furnaces will never grow cold.  Mrs.   Mable   Gaw   and-.'E.  B..  Hardy, both of Grand|Forks, ,werej  married in  Winnipeg a few days  ago. .

O.      *  Many settlers who went to the  JSeehaco valley this summer had to  leave because they could not find  out what sebtions were vacant or  taken up by other locators.;  The three cub bears that have  been in Aldermere all summer were  recently,strapped to the back of a  cayuse and taken to Tyee lake It  is probably the first time that a  cayuse ever packed that class of  freight, and if that particular  cayuse does not-loose its memory  it will never do it again.  Jack Gray has been surveying in  the Nechaco valley all summer.  Another coal mine is being developed upon upper Michel creek  creek in East Kootenay.  Dr. Higgins of Fernie has moved  to Hosmer.  The railroad from McGillivrav,  near Michel, will reach tbe Corbin  coal mines tnis month. At one  place in those mines a vein of coal  is exposed thatis over one hundred  feet in thickness.  There are no vacant houses in  Hosmer, aud it is too cold to sleep  outside.  The contractors on the first 100  miles of the G. T. P. out of Prince  Rupert have difficulty in keeping  their men.

Every man employed  by the lessee, M. Zanoni; is taking  out ore at the present time and the  force will have to be reduced for  lack of place to put the accumulation.

McClurc]  When Mr. Bowser came homo to dinner the other evening he found Mrs.  Bowser with an nprou on und  other  evidences that she lnul been at work  in   the   kitchen,   and   after  surveying  her for a moment he asked:  I "Well, what does this mean?"  I "The cook has left, and I had lo {jet  the dinner," she replied.       t  "Cook left, eh?"  "Yes.    She  has  had n  pain  lu  her  Bide for the last month, and the doe-  tor told her that she ought to have a  rest."  "Humph!   And wo have no girl?"  "But I have put an ad. in the papers,  ���������and ono may come this evening.   Both  Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Green have also  Bent word to girls they know to come  and see me.   AVe won't be long without one, and I would Just ns soon do  tho work for a couple of days as not.  lYou will find your dinner all right."  j   During the dinner .Mr. Bowser was  almost silent.   When it was over and  while Mrs. Bowser was doing up Um  dishes she heard him tramping around  tho sitting room.   She realized that ho  iwas going to have something to say  about the cook's leaving, and when her  work  was  finished she drew a long  WALK TS, XOTJiia LADIES���������WALK IS."  breath and went upstairs to meet the  ���������crisis.    She  had scarcely settled  herself when he began:  ���������   "Mrs. Bowser, the time has come for  plain speaking with you."  ,  "Yes?" she queried.  ''   "You  have added another crime to  the hundreds you have beeu guilty of,  and I am going to tell you right here  and now that you have got to make a  change in your conduct or I shall be  under the painful necessity of applying to tho courts for a divorce."  .   "I didn't know that 1 had robbed,  murdered or committed arson," she  replied.  ��������� "No levity, madam. I refer to the  servant girl problem, as you well  know. I have let you go your own  way unrestrained for years and years,  but the time has come to call a halt.  In fifteen years your cruel aud bloodthirsty attitude toward servant girls  has driven over fifty of thcru out of  this house.   Some have secured other  places, but many of them, discouraged  and hopeless, have gone to the river to  commit suicide. For the deaths of  such you are directly responsible."  Mrs. Bowser rose up and asked to  bo excused for a moment, and, going  upstairs, she returned with a memorandum book in her hand and placed It on  the table and said:  "Here is the name of every girl that  has worked for us for the last twenty  years���������her name, how long she re-  " iuained and allabout it. We liuve had  twenty-nine girls iu the twenty years.  Shall! read you the list? One stayed  three years, one two and several of  them over a year."  i   "Om!    Dm!   Mrs. Bowser,. this is a  matter  that cannot  be dismissed  in  this frivolous manner."  | Reads From Her Diary.  i  "No?   Well,,lei,us go into it a little  deeper, then.   Let me read you a few  . extracts:  : " 'Annie Daily.���������Very competent girl.

"'Mary Scott���������Never had, a better  girl and hoped to keep her for a year  or two, but Mr. Bowser wns fooling  jwlth a gas saver and blew up the  kitchen, and she left*"  ; "Stop! Stop!" shouted Mr. Bowser  as he turned red and white and pointed a finger at her. "Woman, you can't  'dodge this investigation In no such  manner as that. You have simply  made those entries to shield a guilty  conscience." /  "What was I guilty of?"  1 "Listen to me.

Have you ever in all these twenty years given a girl to understand  that you had asked for her confidence?  Have you shown any one of them by  rour attitude that she could come to  rou with her troubles? Answer mo  that, wouinu."  "I will.

Perhaps the most widely grown variety of those known to the old time  gardener as syringas is Philadelphus  grandifiorus, which grows about six  feet high and has large white sweet  scented flowers, which appear in June.  Common mock orange (P. coronarius)  reaches about ten feet in height and  blooms in May or June and is very fragrant- The flowers are pure white and  are borne in dense clusters, often so  numerous as to bend the branches  down to the ground.  Gordon's mock orange (P. gordonia-  nus) Is a native of the United States  and in good ground often reaches ten  or twelve feet in height It has pleasing green foliage with grayish brown  branches.

"The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death," said tho Scriptures,  yet if some man attempted seriously  to reassert this ancient truth today we  would look upon him as a mad prophet  Indeed. Yet the time will come when  men will be able to believe this promise of the Bible, although they may,  never see it literally fulfilled.  Death some day will be acknowledged to be as unnatural in tho economy of the creative plant as are sin  and suffering. But whether or not in  some millennium period mortal man  Svlll be able to forego the gross process of physical dissolution in becoming a spiritual body Is a purely meta-  'physlcal question that does not enter  here. What does interest us Is tho  question, occupying the greatest scientific minds today, whether the body as  such cannot bo retained In perfect condition Indefinitely.  William A. Hammond,   one   of   tho  great authorities," answers it.by saying, "There Is no-physiological reasou.  why man should die."  Thomas J. Allen, M. A., LL. D,, writing in a similar .strain, says: "The human body is not like a machine which  must wear out by content disintegration, for it is self renewing. It is o  simple, scientific fact that we get an  entirely new body every few years,  estimated at from . three to seven.  Every day Is a birthday, for tho process of waste and renewal never ceases.  Perfect balance betwen elimination  and renewal would avoid permanent  waste."  There is no doubt that when we become more enlightened and understand  perfectly tho laws that govern and determine our physical lives aud when  we conform to these religiously life  will be immeasurably prolonged.  The decay.of tho body as evidenced  In old ago is unnatural. The aesthetic  within us recoils in merely contemplating Its approach. We feel thtft there  must be something self perpctratlvo In/  the change when the strong color in a  healthy man and the fresh beauty in a  pure woman tako their departure,  when the bloom on tho cheeks fade,  when the brilliant light within the eyes  grows dim and tho full, red lips become  pale and fallen.  Medical science has pointed out the  physiological cause of these conditions.  -Probably the time will come when it  will be able to point out the manner of  avoiding them.  Wo know that the body grows old because of the existence of an Imperfect  balance between tbo-waste which tlie  body accumulates and the amount it Is  able to throw off. During youth the  balance Is perfect, because the body  has moro than its normal vitality and  strength to throw off the waste matter,  but as we grow older this perfect balance becomes destroyed from ono cause  or another.  The strength that- should go to eliminating Impurities from the body Is uot  husbanded, but rather squandered In  different ways. Then, too, wo eat and  drink those things that cause excessive  waste. An impure diei composed of  foods' containing uric acid, such as  meat,, or of drinks containing poisons,  such as tea and coffeo, taxes the ellinl-  native powers, 'and When the time  comes when these give way a state of  Imperfect elimination has set In, and the  wastes in part are deposited In the system, settling in the arteries and.joints  of the body and accumulating until  they become obstructive elements.  Tho blood stream circulates imperfectly, and when once this condition  exists bad functioning of every organ  of the body results, and old age and  death gradually ensue;      ���������  Mind, too, has a great deal to do In  hastening or retarding the unpleasant  signs of physical decay. Mental science has satisfactorily demonstrated  that mean, narrow, selfish and unpleasant thoughts act destructively on tbe  tissues of the body, while thoughts of a  wholesome and positive character act  constructively.  .And-when tho curtains of "the windows of the soul" are drawn, when the  temple's door is closed and a final silence is within, when the spirit passes  ths threshold to take up a newer and  finer edifice of Its own creation, science  assures us that the body lives on.  Here at least physical immortality Is  an assured fact'v  Theology has Irreligiously taught us  that the body returns to Inanimate  dust The religious answer of science  ris that it returns to God. Tho latest  word In the field of biology is that all  nature, Including tho all mother soil,  is animated and hallowed with the divine principle of life.  More than this, matter Is lndestructl.  ble and eternal. There Is not an atom  that ean be lost In all the utiiversc.  For this reason our bodies do not really  die. They are In the caro of tho angels  of the elements.

Lag  The Sisterhood of Women Will  Behind the Millennium.  "Women," observes the Rev. W. A.  Bartlett of Chicago, "are more exclusive than men. ��������� They form clans and  gaze askance at the newcomer who  doe* not belong to their set."  All of which is true. And the Chicago divine might have added the additional truth that women are also narrower than men, less generous toward  human faults and failings- and prone  to view strangers with suspicion.  It is the exceptional woman who will  take a stranger on trust and think no  evil.  The brotherhood of man may some  day be"reallzed,*"but the sisterhood of  woman will lag behind the millennium.  Women are not wholly to blame for  their petty child's play of belonging to  a special circle and looking down on  the rest of creation. Centuries of Ignorance and false standards of life are  welded Into this bauble called "exclu-  siveness."  ��������� It is fostered by silly prideand bolstered up by empty heads, and finally  It becomes a fetich to the woman and  a matter of great envy to her neighbors.  To be "exclusive" Is to miss the best  of life, to bar out knowledge, to live in  a hencoop.  Your true democratic eye takes in the  full sweep of the horizon. It-is not  fixed on a knothole in the wall.

A few years later a special agent  was sent from Washington to ask the  .Ojibways to cede their lands and remove to a country north of Leech  lake. The agent asked my help.

Tho reign of Edward  VI. and Queen Mary merely  fostered  the ruff without encouraging It to any  greater development But Queen Elizabeth, seeing In it possibilities for offsetting her red hair and clear sliin,  fanned It into-v'igorous life.   In tho sixteenth century the. ruff burst Into full  bloom.    Men and women,  even  tiny  princesses, were overshadowed by the  stiff rays of the ruff on all great occasions.

He-will not be led  to believe that the flood was brought  about by the sins of man. He is  equally unwilling to believe that it was  the work of an angry God, as he could  not see how the Almighty should be so  unjust as to punish the Indians of  America for the naughty things of a  race of people across tho ocean. Another reason which makes it still more  diflidult for the Indian to believe that  tho .flood was a punishment to the  world is the fact that with him there  ,1s no sin. In his language there is no  such word, nor docs he expect to be  punished for any of his acts.  But though there Is no equivalent to  tho word sin In the Indian language  (nor In the Indian mind until the  Christians came), the Indians have  their philosophy iu regard to what is  commonly so termed. Some of their  teachers (most of whom claimed to  have been taught the philosophy of  life and Its Jaws directly by disembodied spirits or by ethereal beings  from other planets) taught that as  man lives here so Is his life hereafter.  If he is quarrelsome or warlike' here,  bo he will be in the more spiritual life.  If he is serene aud contented here, so  he will be there, etc.  The deluge, as described by the few  who were miraculously saved, was the  more grandly terrible in that it came  on suddenly. From the highlands occupied by the Indians they saw the  waves of the sea sweep in upon the  land and recede, only to advance with  immensely Increased volume and stupendously huge breakers. Then thero  came a terrific storm that seemed to  blow from'all and in .all directions.  The storm caused huge waterspouts  which appeared over the wild ocean  as far as the eye could see. The terrified people fled to the mountains, but  those wore all soon to be submerged,  with the exception of one. This mountain which alone remained uncovered  by the tiood is called Avee-heilah  (Mountain of the Moon), yet today it is  aot a very high mountain.  For awhile before the mountains became submerged there was a great  calm, and a douse fog covered the  earth. Then suddenly a mighty boat  appeared to the a wed view of the Indians. It approached and stopped at  the several mountains still uncovered  by the waters, and at each point where  It touched, as if guided by invisible intelligence, the Indians, as if obeying  an unspoken but potent command, entered the boat  The boat rested first at a place called  Avee-qua-lul (mountain peak), now Pilot Knob, on the _ border of Mexico.  There was a mesa on the top of this  mountain, though at this day it does  not exist, and ou this mesa the Indians  first  celebrated   their  delivery. 'This  they   did   by   playing  sacred   games.  /chanting sacred songs, etc.   On rocks  at the foot of Ehls peak there are hieroglyphics   in 'an   unknown   language,  which some of the Indians believe were  made by those who survived the flood.  Petrified driftwood is still to be seen  two-thirds the distance up the sides of  Avee-heilah,  which  drift, the Indians  say, was deposited by the waves of the  great flood.  The Indians, having rested for a time  on the mountain peak, again entered  the boat and were carried eastward,  eventually to a small valley. Here  they again rested, and then, leaving  the boat, they wandered from one place  to another, after a time returning to  the valley. To their surprise, the boat  was gone. It could not have floated  away, for the lamLhvas dry whereon  they had left it, tho flood having subsided after a great calm of its waters.  The boat could not have crumbled to  pieces, for thero had not been time for  Its decay. They could only conclude  that the mysterious boat, having fulfilled its mission of preserving a few(  of their race, had disappeared as miraculously as it had appeared.  Tho spot where the mysterious boat  or ark, had rested was marked by the  Indians placing thero a huge log. They  called the place Qual-jo-para (boat's  resting place). This spot is held sacred  by tho Indians, who will seldom point  It out to strangers. Not many hundred  years ago, it is said, some Indian warriors were passing the spot, and one of  thorn to show his skepticism shot au  arrow Into the side of the great log.  Immediately a stream of blood gushed  from the spot pierced, and the skeptic  fell dead. The story of the event was  carried to all the near tribes, and since  then Indians passing the place fear to  even look leisurely at the log.  A reason given by tho Indians as the  probable cause of tho flood was that  there was a tribe of Indians who, like  Columbus, believed that tho earth was  not flat, but round, and to prove whether this theory wore true thousands  from the different tribes banded together and started out on a journey to find  the edge of thc earth if It was flat  Tho flood occurred soon after the Indians started on this journey, so that  they really believed that those adventurers had reached tho edge of the  earth and their weight had tipped tho  earth to such an extent as to can������* Cue/  water to rush in on tho i������-^���������Los *-  gelcs Times.  How tha  Nightingale   Lost  Its   Once  Brilliant Plumage.  Long, long ago,- thousands^ of years  before man came on the earth, the  nightingales wore the most splendid  plumage of any bird. As they were  also the sweetest singers, as now, you  may imagine that none was their superior in the bird world.  Of course the nightingales were very  proud. This was natural. One young  fellow, however, became so vain as to  be almost unbearable.  "Who is so fine a singer as I? Who  has so handsome a dress as I?" This  was the burden of his song'day after  day.    ' '   , "  But the time came when the young  nightingale warbled no more in the  moonlight. A-fairy, tired of listening  to his boasting, came to him.  "Idle "braggart," said she, "this  night will you cease your trilling.  Hereafter you will sing and sing and  sing, but not the notes of the nightingale. And your relations will wear  a less brilliant garb from this time."  All at once the nightingale became  a little brook. The brooks, which  heretofore were silent, now murmured softly and musically, but the vain  nightingale no longer burst into glorious melody of song.  As for the other nightingales, although they continued to sing as  sweetly as ever, their plumage became a modest reddish brown color  instead of having its former radiant  hues.   So were they punished.  ������lWB������ai.TOI!ll-BI������l!1JI|l.milUUlllHMH  /  "THHE ironing- of black guous  * requires particular care and  particular starch ��������� common starch give9 a rusty  appearance to the fabric  and leaves it streaked  with white.  vcuuiluiu otarcti' gives a "  glossy stiffness and preserves  the solid blackness.

You could  not spare the time to measure it with  a tape line even if that method were  practicable. Besides, being a woodcutter you should be able to select  a tree of a certain height readily, not  by merely looking at it, for this al  best is nothing but guesswork.  Now, the woodcutters of Maine  have a quick and simple way of taking the measure, and it is worth telling. Assuming that a mast sixty  feet in height is wanted, the cutter  ��������� selects . a tree ��������� that he thinks will'  furnish it and then measures off on  the ground from the trunk sixty feet  less his own height. If he is six feet  tall, therefore, he would measure off  on the ground fifty-four feet. At this  point he puts upright in the ground  a pole exactly his own height. Then  he lies down on the ground with his  feet to the pole, so that his head is  just sixty feet from the tree. Lying  thus, face upward, of course, he  sights over the top of the pole, and  the point on the tree trunk on a line  with the top of the pole is pretty Bure  to be sixty feet from the ground.  Tragedy of a Name.  A Mr. Nosmo -King was questioned ���������  ���������about  the   oddity   of  his    Christian  name. '   ' -  "It was this way," he said.  "My'  mother made a point of giving all of ..  uer children unusual names.    1 wa3  three months old belore she found one"  xor me that she liked. One-day, wnilo  out shopping, she saw on one-half of  <i swinging door Ine   word   '.Nosmo,'  while tlie other half bore 'King,' her   *  own name."  " 'JSoriino King,' she noted mentally,  .  not perceiving mat the letters spelled  no smoking,'   when  the   doors   were  closed; hence my lifelong atlliction."���������-  iiarporV Weekly.  ��������� Through indiscretion in eating  green iruit in summer many'children  oecome subject to cholera morbus  caused by irritating acids that act  violently on the lining of. the intestines.

After a big blow enormous numbers of   squid   are   sometimes seen -washing about among the  pounding breakers.   When such news  comes to the town every man or boy  who can beg or borrow a horse goes  galloping down to the beach, armed  with a six-foot bamboo, at the end of  which is a strong steel hook.    They  dash into the surf,  and driving.the  sharp steel into the squirming jellylike creatures haul them ashore one  by one, and leave  them   lying high  and dry upon tho beach, pumping ink  and   water,   and   with   their   long,  sucker-rimmed    arms   coiling   about  like snakes.    These squid   sell for.,a  couple   of   shillings   apiece.     Their  flesh is good for bait; the pen, a long,  opal-tinted bone which extends from  the tip of the tail to the neck of the  animal, forms the cuttle-fish bone of  commerce, and the eyes, which when  dried look like large dull pearls, find  a ready sale among curio dealers.  Fishing   In   Nigeria.  Natives of Nigeria are remarkably  skilful anglers, and their manner of  catching fish recommends itself alike  for simplicity and success.   The fisherman grasps a   small   line weighted  at the other end with a small stone,  and  at  regular  distances   along  the  line he attaches a number of hooks,  made of animals' bones in the form  of a narrow V, while to the angle of  each V is fastened a short line, made  of sinews, and baited with a kind of  snail;   the  fish  swallowing   the   bait  and i,he line, swallows also the hook,  which is so acted upon by the tension  of  the  line,   as   to   expand   it.*-  two prongs, and fasten them firmly  in the throat.    The victim struggles-  and whirls  about the  line,  thus  at-  tracting its family and neighbors, to  swallow the same snare.  "Jove!  night."  "Indeed, the audience did not seem  to tlnnk so.

The first notice of labor unions was  when Plutarch wrote of various craft  guilds as having existed in the Koman  and Greek dominions. From Rome  the idea was passed on to the young  nations that followed, and in the  middle ages the guilds were to be  found everywhere. A guild was a  voluntary association of those living  near together who joined for a common purpose, paying contributions,  feasting together temporarily, helping  ono another in sickness and poverty  and sometimes uniting for the pursuit of special objects. It was undoubtedly from these early associations that the idea of tha modern labor  organizations came.  SHOE POLISH  The Perlecft Dragging for Ladies'  Shoes.

The  exclusion was most unjust, for. five  other journals using most of the  condemned articles still have the  privilege of the mails. After considerable time had elapsed Lemieux  admitted that through the influence of three men this paper  was denied the use of the mails,  but he would not divulge - the  names of- the three cowards who  stabbed in the dark the most truthful journal ever published in Canada. Will Lemieux now come out  out in the open and tell the names  of these three cowards ? Not likely,  for he belongs to ' a government  that does not care to have all its  acts paraded in the limelight.  Deeds of injustice are safer under  the pall of night.

A., Commerce and  Montreal,  as if by a  signal  from some tin god,  withdrew their ads from this   paper,  evidently, as far as  we can learn  and divine, because-something had  been said in its columns in favor of  the men who work, slave and sweat  in order that distant  millionaires  may have money to throw at the  canaries, and cushions upon their  automobiles.

Times have been  so hard   that   perhaps   the  poor  hanks cannot afford  to advertise  and are merely following the example of the majority  of business  people in this city of the future.  The managers of our local banks  are quiet,  genial gentlemen as a  rule, and always willing to give  you money,  provided,  of course,  that you have security equal to the  occasion, and someover. Oh, dear!  we must not talk so much about  money and banks.    It makes us  lonesome and winter is just over  the divide.  FERRY, WASH.
