Parcels Post  A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that the editor would once more  like to commune with your collateral.  It beats all how a woman  will make a fool of a man and  then go right ahead and marry  him.  A father who makes the rules  for the house should stick around  a bit and see to the enforcing of  them.  A St. Louis woman says she  shot her husband "just for fun."  Sho made a hit with her humor  all right.  Ttik policeman is the only one  who can make a business of looking for trouble and be commended  for finding it.  What a thing of beauty a woman would be if she didn't have  to wear all the contraptions fashion  dictates.  Things that a person couldn't  find in the light have a most pre-  verse way of getting under one's  feet in the dark.  not perfect.  If there is one of these relationships you havo never known, your  life is by so much maimed.  It is the fashion to speak dis-  paranly .of relatives, but they are  a part of the environment of  Nature, and if you get nothing but  annoyance from them something  ails you. You might as well curse  the sun and stars as hate relatives.  There be hot loves and wayward  loves, and they have their place;  but blessed is the man, and thrice  blessed the woman, that loves the  people that ought to be loved.  There are grandmother and  grandfather, for instance. The  | child that has them not has missed  one of the sweetest elements that  make memory happy.' They understand children better than  parents, for thoy have learned that  so many things that worry parents  are not much matter.  And plenty of brothers and sisters. A solitary child in a house  is a lame soul.

Pelletier,  Postmaster General.    Last session  it was   announced that a system  would    be   established  but   since  then few details havo leaked out.'  Under tho direction of tho minister  officials   havo   been   engaged   in  watchingthe English  and American systems carefully so that i'nital  mistakes could be avoided.  Tho service will not bo for one  particular part of the   Dominion  but will extend from East to West  The different   provinces   will   bo  used as zones.  The Postmaster General said recently:  "The saving to private] citizens  will bo enormous, tho rates, of  course, being much less than at  present, but the expense to the  country will bo largely increased  It .will certainly be a great citizens  benefit."  There is every indication that  when the system comes into vogue  it will be a smooth running  machine.

To make a complete home you  need a complete set of human relations, as per the following list  prepared by Nature and indorsed  by the best traditions:  Husband and father, |  Wife and mother,  Children,  including   babieB and  adolescents;  Sisters and brothers,  Grandfather,  Grandmother,  Guests,  And a dash of neighbors and  friends.  If yon lack any of these items  As for babies it is only a sort of  immitation famiiy where there are  none. The very best ingredients  of our character came from deal-  with babies.  And I love a houseful of young  folks, courting age. The only  wholesome, delightful, and cheering disease in or out of the medicine books is lovesickness. When  we go past its agonizing stages we  still ought to see it in others  around us.  Most cranks and dried up folks  and pessimists and disagreeable  people are victims of small families.  They have been derived of that  wholesome flow of the humanities  that comes from a full set of relations.

He made his Burgical  debut when  his right hand was cut off in a  mill machine.   An artificial hand  was provided.   He next lost his  left leg in the same machine.

The basis for the whole dairy industry is the cow and if farmers  are going to utilize to the best advantage the great qualities of  roughage that annually are wasted  on every farm they must go after  the cow.  There is no way to convert the  corn,    the hay,    the   clover,   the  straw, the kafir, the milo and the  abundance of other green feed into  a marketable form so quickly and  so economically as by feeding to  the dairy   cow.    She works   day  and night constantly, both summer  and winter, on week days and Sundays, in flood and drough. to convert the unmarketable waste of the  farm into a finished and valuable  product of human fo'od.  The first thing is to get the cows.  Profits are then assured, for the  dry-farm country is especially  adapted, the feed is there, the  marketing facilities are at hand in  tween her cook and the maid next  door, also a Swede:  "How you are, Hilda?"

The wife considered tho matter,  and the next time her lord began  to beat her she grasped a chair and  smashed it - over his head.

Now we want to say something, to husbands. -These
dear aggravating, indispensable creatures, that ..there is
hardly any living with 'or without. If your wife or daughter has been bending over the hot stove and a sewing ma/
chine all day, -she needs to ride out in a vehicle or . horseback. Dont think we are a fit subject for a" lunatic asylum if we tell you to stop a horse out of "the crap"-, and
take her or let her go by herself if she is not afraid.
There is no more sense in intemperate work than intemperate rest. You may have to, stop longer to pay the bill.
You will be sorry some day when those tired hands hold
white flowers under a pall that you did not look more after
her health and comfort.    .
Give us a woman who is willing to adapt herself to circumstances, and who, after exertion of efforts has .such an
undying faith, her motto is "Though he may- slay me yet
will I trust Him.'; The woman who will nof be .iniserab'le'
over the past, but will cling to the future with 'hope, for
hope is the blossom of happiness; the woman not afraid to
superintend her domestic affairs and then grace her parlor
with as much dignity and confidence as if she we're the
wife of the president of the United States; the" woman
who would cling to her husband through thick and thin,
remembering she took him for better or worse.

and mother had us in her drawing room, or took us out
for a little walk alone? Not that we did not love' to romp

New ^Denver  long  after '
Noah was dead;   how a
parson took a  drink  at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how justice was dealt in

women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically " depicts   tho
roamings   of   a   western
editor among the tender-

contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance

Thus it will  be seen the oxtensivo territory we  can serve, where  tho freight rate  will  be very low.     We estimate  when we get running wo can save  tho   smelters $2 a ton  on  coke.  With this saving to the smelters it  will be possible for them to 'reduce  their charges for the treatment of  low  grade ores,  and  in this way  much    ore  .that  cannot now   be  treated  could   be mado   to give  handsome returns.  Mr. Watts said that No. 1 tunnel demonstrated two veins of coal,  each from Jive to six feet in thickness.    This is    first-class   coking  coal.    The tunnel is in  400 feet.  The No.  2 tunnel is in 580 feet  and follows the coal seam.    This  seam  averages   from   two to nine  feet in thickness.    This is valuable  coal for steam and household purposes.    In round figures  the company holds   4,000   acres   of  coal  land.    The workings   are   within  300 feet of the line of the Kettle  Valley railway.    At ��������� present several men are doing outside work  making preparations for installing  the  machinery.    There are some  GOO shareholders in  the company,  and of the board of directors two  reside at Grand Forks.   They are  Dr.  Kingston and S.   J.   Miller,  proprietor of the Winnipeg hotel.  ing should be sufficient to warrant  the Kettle Valley railway in commencing construction of a line to  tho camp.    The company now has  their railway operating as far as  Lynch Creek,   IS   miles   up   the  North Fork  from   Grand   Forks,  and  by extending   the   line   2Gi  miles further it would not only tap  both camps but would only serve  several other properties en route  which ceased operations   through  lack of   transportation   facilities.  Franklin and Glouster camps are  about three miles apart.   A large  number of Grand Forks and Phoenix    citizens    are   interested   in  claims, and the British Columbia  Copper company recently renewed  their forking bond on a Franklin  camp group of properties.���������Grand  Forks Gazette.  00<XK>00<>00<*K>00<X><X>00<>00<K>0  |   B, C. MINING NEWS   f  **k*-h-h>0<-"*-k:k**<--<><*^^  Following   the    report    which  reached the city this week that the  ledge had been struck in  the tunnel on the Union mine in Glouster  camp, a small "stampede" started  for Glouster and Franklin camps  on the North Fork, with a view to  locating any likely looking. property not located, as well as "analyzing"  prospects of claims now  recorded.   One   well-known mining prospector claims the Union  has   81,000,000 worth   of ore   in  sight.  The new strike reported is in a  75-foot tunnel at a depth of a 100  feet from  the "glory hole"  from  which  the  shipment of ore   was  made, and is said to be more promising in  appearance than the ore  shipped.    What is regarded as a  fairly authentic statement of the  returns obtained from the recent  shipment from  the Union is that  about $80 a ton gross was realized  from the 23 tons smelted, so that  not withstanding the heavy transportation   charges of 816.50 and  smelting charges of 86 about 858  per ton would be netted outside of  the mining costs.    It may be safely  considered that tho owners realized  well over 850 a ton after deducting  the cost of mining.  These figures represent the average, of course, of the 23 tons shipped and the shipment consisted of  tho entire "diggings" of the "glory  hole"-no selection of ore having  been made.   It is stated that much  of the ore ran over 8150 to the ton.  While it can only be regarded as  an estimate, the Union is reported  to contain 100,000 tons of pay ore.  This is based on proving the ledge  by tunnelb at a depth of both 50  A   special from Telkwa to the  Victoria Colonist says that confirmation is at hand of the news of a  placer ^ discovery   made  ten days  ago   by Kid Price,' Ed.  Pearson  and George Ecksley.   Their statements are substantiated by Colin  Munroe.   Ira  McLean,   B. N. M.  Hoops and George Axley, who arrived yesterday.  The find is located at Sibolia  Creek, a tributary of the Tahtsa  River. Bed-rock had not been  reached before the above party left.  Panning done by Hoops showed  coarse gold in every instance, one  nugget being nearly an inch across.  Not a shovelful waa barren.  The creek was staked completely.  Men are working on the tributaries,  Bill George, of Aidermere, getting  good value at No Name Creek.  The extent of the field is unknown  but it is very large. The Sibolia  empties into the Tahtso Eiver, and  the valley is wider than the Bulk-  ley.  About 100 men are now on the  ground, all the pack horses being  requisitioned. Aidermere and Tel-  ka are denuded of men.  The field is about 100 miles  south east, and there is a good trail  through the Francois Lake country  to the scene of the find.  A small amount of gold has been  brought in by Kid Price and Andy  Goodwill.  Lack of provisions and necessity  of recording claims is keeping the  trail open. Better weather has  set in.  Writing of the platinum deposits  in the the Lardo, The Kootenaian  has an interesting article from  which we quote the following extracts:���������  "That platinum as well as gold  exists in the bottom of the Lardo  River Valley, is the belief of C. H.  Buschner, of Philadelphia, Pa.,  owner of the gold dredge which  has been, working successfully all  summer at Goldhill, a point on  the Lardo River, a few miles this  side of Poplar.  "In proof of his  assertion,  Mr.  Buschner, who was in Kaslo a few  days ago, en route east to purchase  more machinery, was exhibiting a  small   glass   phial   containing    a  brown colored   dust,   with bright  specks liberally sprinkled through  it, said dust said to  contain plati  num by   some who had  previous  knowledge   of   the   appearance of  that metal.    Mr. Buschner has had  no assays mado yctlmt claims that  ho has satisfied himself by a chemical test that the strange looking  material in the little bottle carriesJ \\  platinum values.  "Mr. Buschner holds a dredging  lease of three and ono half miles  along tho Lardo River,  and this  section carries gold wherever tests  havo been made.     Most of it is  very fine, too much so for handling  by ordinary placer mining methods.  That there are thousands of acres  of such ground that can be profitably worked there can be no doubt,  and if   existence   of   platinum in  commercial quantities   is   demonstrated,   the   whole   river   valley  should see the commencement of  an era of tremendous activity within a very short time that will probably   eclipse the famous Poplar  rush of several years ago.".  g SMITH'S       SMITHS  SMITH'S        SMITH'S |  g Ego Baking Powder, 35c. size for 25c,   A   good   buy |������  %ZZ "~" '> " ���������-���������- ���������. , ���������*���������*������  g Watch our grocery window.
