"The OroDenoro mine resumed  operations on Monday, employing  about twenty-five mon, and last  nighfa double shift was inaugurated with additional machines at  work. It is also possible that the  Emma mine will again be employing men in the near future.

"The Rawhide will probably be  the first of the D.imiuion mines to  appear on the shipping list. A  largo amount of ore is blocked  out and considerable broken down,  and Mr. Seward, assisted by G.

The following report, part of  which appeared in tiie New York  papers a short time ago, was  printed by tho Phoenix Pioneer  last week:  '���������The New Dominion Copper  company will commenco-operations  at its properties in Phoenix early  next month. This informotion was  received in a dispatch to the Pioneer from New York yesterday,  owing to the absenco from tho city  of John Seward, in charge of the  properties, further information cannot bo secured at time of going to  press.  "J. Parke-Chaiming, consulting  engineer, who recently inspected  the properties hero, has drawn tip  plans for a contract between the  British Columbia Copper company  and the New Dominion Copper  company whereby the lntter's ores  will bo shipped to the Greenwood  smelter for treatment.  "In order to handle tho ore  from the shippers of both companies, the British Columbia Copper management, has decided upon  an enlargement of its smelting capacity from 2.000 to 3,000 tons per  day. This will be effected through  the construction of a fourth furnace, and the enlarging by 33 per  cent, of each of tho three furnaces  now at the smelter. It is proposed  to construct the new furnaces' 30  feet long by 50 inches wide, and if  it proves, successful in the economic reduction of ore. Tho other  three furnaces will be enlarged to  tho same size. '  "Only two of the threo furnaces  at the British Columbia muni tor  havo been in operation thin year.  but the third will bo blown in  about Ootobcr 3rd. ".It is expected  that by -that time regular shipments will be mado from the com-'  tho company's Oro Denoro initio  and possibly from ouo of the Do  Camp McKinney.

It is  no trouble to get a sack of trnut in  an hour measuring G or 7 inches  to the fish.  On the Vernon claim, adjoining  the Fontenoj'/Hugh Cameron has  made a good strike of lead and  zinc ore.  It is reported that the Waterloo  will shortly resume operations.  While sinking a well on his  ranch Bill Yonkin struck a blind  ledge carrying good looking ore.  Good gold ore has been shipped  from the Dayton group that assayed $42 in yellow metal to the  ton. The group is under bond to  Chesaw men.  More capital properly used would  develop some bonanzis between the  north and south forks of Rock  creek.  ���������  The well known and popular  Pearl Oil is 83.50 a case at Brown's  in Ferry, Wash.  - Omineca Gold. '��������� - -'  The success attending the operations of the Kildaro company  shows that the Omineca river placer  country is far from being a dead  one, and that there is still gold  there in paying quantities. A  computation of tho value of tho  Ivildaro compauy's holdings on  Manson creek, based on the area  of bedrock cleaned this year and  the amount of gold recsvered shows  the value of the properties to bo in  excess of eight hundred thousand  dollars per mile, which for the five  miles would show a total approaching tho amounts recovered from  the bonanza creeks of the early  days. Manson is like the other  parts of tho Omineca placer districts in that tho gravels aro deep  and will take modern and improved  machinery to work to a profit.  This machinery cannot bo Ukcii  in until the railway is completed  but tlio possibilities of tho district  aro already attracting tho attention of a number of miners, some  of- whom were iii there more  than thirty years ago and who arc  taking up leases with the idea of  instilling dredges and hydraulic  plants as soon as transportation  conditions will permit.���������Omiueca  Herald..

A British army corps was called out  for war the other day, and afforded a  fine object-lesson of how quickly and  effectively British troops can be organized .nowadays.  Never before in tlie history of the  j British anny has so unexpected, and  yet so complete, a mobilization been  curried out. Nearly twenty thousand  mon of all arms were lined up ready  to entrain, und it was only by the ab-  ��������� sonce of a call to tlie Reservists that  the feat differed from what the authorities hope to effect in case of an  actual or threatened invasion.  No warning of what was coming was  given, At six o'clock in the morning  Lieut.-Gen. Smith-Dorrien rode down  to the headquarters' office and gave  the order for the alarm to be sounded,  followed by the order for every unit  in his command to turn out as rapidly  ns possible, fully mobilized, and ready  for active service.  The military telephones linking up  the barracks wore soon busy with the  order, and mounted orderlies carried  the summons to those oflicers who  live out of barracks.  Some ot the battalions were already  in the field; the Gloucester**, for instance, having left barracks at foui  o'clock for a long day's operations.  They were .summoned back by mounted men and cyclist messengers, and  within the hour every barracks was  the centre of activity.  Wagons were drugged out nnd loaded with stores, water-carts filled, ammunition drawn from the magazines*  and distributed, and field dressing-  anil emergency rations issued to the  men with their metal identity disc*:  and pocket ledgers.  For some lime past the chiefs of  staff have boon working at this mob;  ligation scheme to render it perfoe1  for a sudden call, and (he tost that  was being applied could only be  equalled by the actual call of war.  indeed, among many of the troops the  belief was accepted that an invasion  was an accomplished fact.  The telegraph wires had carried the  news to those oflicers and men away  on week-end leave, and the early  trains to Aldershot were ii 11 etl with  anxious soldiers, who on reaching testations raced up to their barracks,  to appear in a short space of time ac  countrod and equipped for service.  Six hours was the time given for  the units to get on parade, ready to  move off, but so perfect was the machinery that in the great majority of  cases little more than half that time  was needed to report all ready.  From the Army Service Corps barracks parties of butchers and bakers,  clerks, saddlers, and artificers march  ed off to join the brigade and divisional headquarters, every man hav  ing his allotted place and his special  duties.  No confusion marked the preparations, and long before tho allotted  time was up nearly 20.000 men, artillery, cavalry, and infantry, with engineers and supply transport services,  were marching out of barracks to go  wherever needed.

Professor Petrie Tells of His Excavations In Egypt���������Palace of Pharaoh Mentioned In Bible by Jeremiah Is Found at Memphis-  Golden Ornaments Are Found  Along With Mummy.  An interesting lecture describing  the work of the British School of  Archaeology in Egypt during the last  season was delivered by Professor  Petrie the other evening at University College.  The work was divided into two portions. During the early part of the  season extensive explorations, were  made in the hitherto unexplored valleys of Qurneh, the country of Thebes, and several most valuable .finds  were  made. '" $$g$W  One of the most interesting of these  was the discovery of an undisturbed  tomb of the period of the eleventh  dynasty, B.C. 2500, and of a curious  Osiris chapel of n king named Sankh-  ka-ra. More important was the find  of an untouched tomb of tho seventeenth dynasty, about B.C. 1800���������the  simple furniture of which was very  remarkable. Among the objects were  a number of vases with a string network of most remarkable fineness, by  which they were attached to a carrying pole, like a milkman's yoke.  String bags of wonderful workmanship were also found and a chair of  pretty design, with a knotted string  seat. " *���������  The tomb in which the mummy was  found was evidently that of some person of importance, for a gold necklace, gold bangles, and a girdle of  curious Nubian pattern were found.  There was found also a small private  temple, built by "a high priest named  Nebunncf, who associated himself  with Rameses II.  At the end of ono of the waddies  leading into tlie desert as a moslem  sheik's tomb, near to it were small  soul houses and jars of offerings containing water and food���������a curious  survival'of the ancient customs.  At Memphis the work was directed  to the exploration of a large mound  over sixty feet in height, and which  will take many years to dig out. At  a depth of about ten feet the remains  of a large edifice���������about 400 feet long  by 200 feet broad, with massive walls  fifteen feet high���������was discovered. It  proved to bo the palace of Apiries, or  the Pharaoh Hophra of the Bible,  B.C. 590,' who is mentioned by Jeremiah.   .-It was a large edifice, consist-  Amusing Scenes Prior to the' Birth of  the Princess.  Some amusing stories are told of the  popular excitement in Holland prior to  the birth of tbe queen's baby. In more  than one place false alarms were given by the premature distribution of  handbills printed in advance for issue  as soon as the birth occurred. Some  of these got Into circulation even at  Tbe Hague. A stationer who had a  stock of them ready was called up on  tbe telephone. "Who Is there?" he  asked. Tbe reply came, "Prins," a  fairly common name in Holland. ���������  He did not stop to hear any more.  His mind, running constantly ou the  event awaited at the palace, jumped  to the conclusion that this was the  announcement all Holland was expecting so eagerly. Ho rushed off to  a cupboard, pulled out the handbills  on which was printed iu bold letters  "Prins" (prince) and began giving  them away. Ten minutes later a sad  stationer- was locking up that cupboard again nnd reflecting on the  Dutch proverb which says, "Make  sure the boll Is ringing before you  start for church."  .In a little town of north Holland an  even greater confusion was caused. A  bundle of tho/*e handbills was dispatched to a shopkeeper from Amsterdam. There' were three different  kinds. Ono said "Prince," another  "Princess" and n third "Twins." The  shopkeeper opened the parcel unsuspectingly and saw that the top bill  announced the birth of a male heir.  Instantly he seized an armful of the  papers and ran out, distributing them  ns he went. For a few. minutes all  was joy and exhilaration. But then  there arose disputes. "Long live our  little prince!" cried one. "Prince?"  said another. "Why, man, it's a princess." "What are you talking about?"  inquired a third in amazement. "It's  twins.   Look here."  The shopkeeper, It may be Imagined,'  had a bad quarter of an hour before  tbe mystery was cleared up by the  discovery of the letter of explanation  which he had overlooked.���������Argonaut.

The  daily task of the negro houseman was  to rub the doorplate until it shone. It  took the place of the lares and pe-  nates of the Romans and was attended  to just as carefully as were the ancient household gods. 'Everything is  changed now, though.

So many popular descriptions and  pictures of the mighty dinosauria ("terror lizards") which abounded In western America in prehistoric times have  lately been published that much curiosity Is felt as to their probable manner  of life. Dr. O. P. Hay contends that  these animals, and particularly- the  species named dlplodocus, did not  walk and much less raise themselves  on their hind legs on land. Their  great weight, about twenty tons,  seems to him to'preclude that Idea.  He believes they were more like crocodiles in their habits, swimming easily  and feeding largely on water plants,  many of which they reached by means  of their long necks. The dlplodocus  has relatively very weak teeth.���������  Youth's Companion.  The Borrower.  "I'd like to borrow your lawD mower."  "You're early this year.

Clarke, vicar of  Caldicot, South Monmouthsire, England, has refused to allow a Church  lad, a Canadian, to attend his confirmation class because the youngster  is a member of the Boys' Brigade,  which holds its meetings in the Wes-  leyan school-room. The lad has been  bi ought up in the Church of England, his parents belong to -the  Church, it was at the invitation of  the curate that he presented himself  at the vicar's confirmation class, but  the vicar asked him art the close of  the class if he belonged to the Boys'  Brigade, and, when informed that he  did. said, "We must draw .the,line  somewhere."- ' *.   ''���������--  The complaint seems to be ,that a  church.lad, though willing to\claim  full membership of the Church,  should have been guilty of the-grievous sin of "schism" by belonging to  an unseetarian organization. and_at-  tending a Bible class in connection  with the Boys' Brigade, in which  simple Bible teaching is' given. The  vicar called upon the father of the  lad. Mr. Arthur C. Luff, and said:  "We must draw the line somewhere.  Seeing he is in the brigade, we cannot very well confirm him." Mr. Luff  said: "Very well; that finishes the  matter."  To an interviewer, Mr. Luff observed: "It is strange to me, after living  for fifteen years in British Columbia,  where things .are so different." When-  invited to give his version of the matter, the Rev. F. W. Clarke said he  hoped no newspaper would interfere  in a matter of this kind���������"this is a  matter which must be left to the  clergy to deal with."  Mr. Alfred Kemp, the Wesleyan  evangelist, who has charge of the  Caldicot Boys' Brigade, said they  were absolutely unseetarian, and told  the. boys to attend what place of worship they pleased, but several members of the Boys' Brigade were asked  to leave the church Sunday school  because of their membsrship, and a  lieutenant of the brigade left the  church choir for the same reason.  The curious thing is that the brigade  have attended Rogiet Church, where  the Archbishop of "Monmouth preached to them. Hut Boys' Brigade members are not wanted in tlie parish  church of Caldicot.  SALT OF THE EARTH  But  when   overstrained   their   highly  strung systems give way   and  depression and suffering  is intense.  Money is made these days at the  expense of- brain and nerve rather  than muscular tissues.  The successful men and women are  often .of the highest strung nervous  type���������keen and active���������but with too  little reserve force.  A little extra worry and anxiety and  snap goes the nervous system. Weeks  aud months are'often required before  energy and vigor are regained.  Rest helps, so does fresh air and  exercise, but the blood must also be  made rich and red by use of such  treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  Much as they may disagree on some  points the best physicians are unanimous in claiming that an abundance  of rich, red, life-sustaining, nerve invigorating blood is positively necessary for the restoration of' the exhausted nervous system.  There is loo often little sympathy  for the nervous sufferer. When as a  matter of fact his sufferings are most  intense being of mind as well as body.  Headaches, ncuralqrin, indigestion,  sleeplessness, irritability, pains and  cramps are often the lesser felt because of tlie-depressed spirits and discouragements which come with loss of  memory, and gloomy forebodings of  tho future.  The sufferer from nervous exhaustion and .prostration can use Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food with positive assurance that the benefits derived  therefrom will be both thorough and  lasting. ^  There is no reaction from this great  nerve-builder because it is not a stimulant, but a restorative^ and recon-  structor pf the wasted nervous system. 50 cts. a box, all dealers, or Ed-  manson, Hates & Co., Toronto.  Etiquette at Covent Garden.  , Etiquette at Covent Garden^ Is almost as strict as that which prevails  in the servants' hall of a great mansion; says London M. A. F. No prima  donna must be addressed by an inferior, and the presentation of bouquets is a delicate matter, regulated  with due regard for the feelings of  the.ladles. The claque still prevails;  but, as only the less eminent singers  employ these "aids to success," r.obody  is ever deceived. The management  knows nothing of these men, who are  hired by the singers to go into the  gallery, and applaud their employers  vociferously. The custom Is very common ou the continent, where it also  takes the more objectionable form of  hiring men to hiss rivals off tbe stage.  Happily that sort of thing would not  be tolerated in England, and so tbe  claque Is confined to tbe minor members of the company, who bring over  with them an insatiable desire for applause and are so determined to get It  that they leave nothing to chance. The  claquers receive a fee of 2 shillings,  In addition to the payment for their  seats.  Couldn't Pass Him.

The students In the Scotch universities annually enjoy their "Meal Monday," but few of the undergraduates  remember how the holiday was Instituted. In faroff days,. when learning  was really nourished on "a little oatmeal," the students before leaving  home for the universities provided  themselves with a quantity of meal  sufficient to make "halesome parritch"  half through the session. By tbe end  of January their "meal klsts" had run  low, aud "a day off" was given in  which tho student was expected to  journey halfway home, meeting at  this point bis parent or brother, who  brought with him a second load of the  simple diet. The holiday was fixed ou  a -Monday so as to allow the undergraduate the benefit of the preceding  Saturday.' In times past the Journeys  would often extend to fifty or sixty  miles. The modem student goes home  for "Meal Monday," but he travels  with a week end ticket and has no  thought of the painful journeys of his  ancestors.���������Dundee Advertiser.

The following extract will  be read with appreciation:  " The author's greatest difficulty lies  in the necessity of directing an actor's  attention to an obvious mispronunciation���������a feat that must be achieved  without humiliating the actor in the  presence of his professional brethren.  Many years ago 1 was engaged In  rehearsing a burlesque, and a very  clever young lady had to sing the couplet:  Indubitably If you do  It will be the worse for you.  The clever young lady,  whose pronunciation was not always beyond reproach, delivered the lines thus;  Jndubltubly If you do  It will be ihe worse for you.  This, of course, would not do, so I  determined to all or the word to "Inevitably." The young lady,agreed that  the alteration greatly improved the  verse, but she was not to be deprived  of her "tub," so she sang it:  lnpvltnbly ir you do  It will bo tho worse for you.  This wns just as bad, so^l made It  "unquestionably," aud, of course, it-  came out:  Unquestlonubly If you do  II will be the worse tor you.  I could think of no other' word that  would answer the purpose, so, as a  last resource, I said to hpr:  "Do you think It advisable to give  the word its French acceutif"  "How do you mean?"  "Why, 'unquestlonubly' ��������� that's the  way It is pronounced in I'arls. In addressing an English audience perhaps  the simple English version of the word  would be better. Try It. at all events,  'unquestionably,' 'a' instead of 'u.'  'Unquestlonubly' would be all* very  well for the stalls, but ..the gallery  wouldn't understand It."  "Of course." she said, "the English  accent would certainly be more appropriate."  And she sang It "unquestionably"  like the good girl that she was.-  A TUSK HUNTER'S ESCAPE.

One native named .lutna. from the  coast, an unskilled hunter, observing  that the wind was In such a direction  that it blew news of tbe herd to bim  rather than -blowing his whereabouts  to the knowledge of the herd, ran out in  the open with bis rifle and aimed at  short range at a powerful creature  which was ��������� watering a straggling  shrub with water he had taken In his  trunk from the pond.  Once hit, the elephant was correspondingly furious aud rushed at  Juma after a deliberate scrutiny of  the immediate foreground to discover  his whereabouts. Having determined  where his assailant stood, he tore along,  crazy with rage, toward the shaking  savage.  Juma. with an oriental's instinct of  prostration before such an overwhelming force, merely threw himself -flat  upon the ground.  The elephant rushed completely over  him, but by accident left him safe,  although choked and blinded with the  disturbed and sandy soil. The great  feet cleared him. nnd tbe tusks missed  him.  Almost twenty-four hours passed before Juma dared believe himself alive  and sound, nnd for the first twelve  hours after the excitement he spoke of  himself only in the past tense, as of  one dead.  PALE, LANGUID GIRLS  Weak  Blood  During Development May.  Easily Cause a Life of Suffering. ,  A Tonic Such as Dr, Williams' Pink'Pills  is Needed to Build up the Blood  and Give New Strength.  At no time in her life does a girl  stand in greater need of pure red blood  and the strength which it alone can  give her, then when she is developing  into womanhood. It is then that any  inherited tendency to anaemia or consumption needs only the slightest encouragement to rapidly develop. ,-This  danger is especially threatening to  girls who are confined long hours indoors, in stores, offices and factories-  girls depressed by worry and cares.  All these conditions quicky impover-  ish the blood and are among the most  common causes of sickness among  growing girls and young women. If  at any time a girl finds that ber  strength is failing and she is" becoming pale and nervous, has no ambition and is languid, it is a cert?in sign  that her blood is failing to meet the  demands upon it, because it is impure  and thin.  It is at a time like this that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are invaluable to  young women and growing girls. They,  build up the blood, make it rich, red  nnd pure, tone the nerves and give  new health and strength to every"  part of the body. They have cured so  many cases of this kind -that they may  truly be called a specific for the common diseases of girlhood. Miss Minnie Smith, Creighton street, Halifax,  says:���������"I have proved that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are all that is claimed for them in cases similar to mine.-'  About three years ago I suddenly began to fun down. I grew so weak that  1 could hardly attend to my school  studies. I suffered from headaches,  my heart would palpitate violently at  the least exertion, and my appetite was  very fickle. I tried doctors' medicine  and emulsions, but the treatment did  not help me. Then I started taking ���������  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and after tak-  ing seven or eight boxes I was stronger than ever before. I feel that I owe  my present good' health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I gratefully recommend them to other ailing girls.'.'  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold  by all medicine dealers or will be sent  bv mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes  for $2.50 by The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Jacoiis is doing a great deal  for the mining industry of this  province. In one month he had  2-10 inches of B. 0. mining news in  the leading mining journal of New  York.  At last heaven seems to have  been discovered, for the Merritt  Herald says that Bunyon City (not  Burton) has never had any births,  marriages or deaths, and iu addition lo this cheerful record it has  no church, saloon, or police court.
