A Slight Oversight
Patsy had bought a gun and had
invited old Mickey Minogue to
accompany him to the moors for a
bit of a pastime. Suddenly a fine
woodcock flew up out of the
heather and up came the firearm
to Patsy's shoulder for the fatal
shot. In an instant Mickey grasp*
ed him by the arm and shouted ex-
citedly: ''For hivin't sake, Patsy,
don't fire, sure ye have forgotten
to lood the gun." "That's as may
be." replied Patsy, as he proceeded
to take aim, "bat fire I mast for
the bird won't wait!"

Concert at Midway
'  w .	
A good crowd were at Harrison's
Hall on Friday last, January 8. to
welcome a number of juvenile performers from   Ropk   Creek.    The
Rev. A. M.' Lloyd presided.    The
programme consisted in the main
of national .dances,  and  the first
reward should  be made to  Nita
and Maud  Richter for their dan
cing of the Irish   jig,. which was
accorded  the honor of a   double
encore.    Encores were also obtained by V. Shillcock and F. Raiment
for the Scotch Reel,  and their action song '.'Pit-pat," by Mip Har-
rigan and Nita Richter for a violin
duet  "Two-step,"  to which they
responded  with   f Annie Laurie,"
and to Mr. Buehannan for his first
song, a Scotch melody, and he also
gave   a   very   fine   rendering   of.
Toste's "Good-bye,"  marred only
by a little flatness on the top notes.
���The Morris dance made an interesting variation and Katherine
Kelly and Jean Richter earned
golden opinions in the Spanish
dance "Tarantella," while Annie
Anderson and May McMynn danced the French gavotte with much
grace, ind Maud and Jean Richter
were very charming in the Italian
dance.

thanked all who had contributed
to the success of' the evening, including the audience and explained

-westior the,h_nefit.-Qf< his,..health,
or to sell something, but that he
had a definite message to deliver
and welcomed everyone to the fortnightly Sunday afternoon service
in Harrison's Hall.
The performance closed with a
Tableau and Chorus "United Nations," in which there was a brave
display of bunting, and patriotism
ran riot, and a comic medley by
the Minstrel Troupe, in which Mr.
Price as centre-man scored at the
expense of his curiously, dressed
colleagues; and very successfully
cleared the stage by his singing of
"Sally in our alley."
=1 Dancing followed-anfeiUthe small
hours and the thanks of the committee are due to Mrs. John Dock-
steader, Mrs. Shillcock, Mrs. Tanner, Mrs. W. H. Docksteader and

Since the completion of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway considerable mining activity has developed in the country opened up
by tbe line in Central British Columbia and Western Alberta. On
the eastern slope of the rockies
three coal mines have beeu opened
on a large scale; and will have an
output, when working full capacity, exceeding 2,500 tons daily.
In the Babine Lake and Francois Lake districts of British Columbia and in the neighborhood of
Smithers and New Hazelton, gold
and silver mines are being developed. In connection with the
mines near New Hazelton, an
aerial railway seven miles long,
and attaining an elevation of 4,000
feet, is being constructed to convey the ore from the workings to
4
the Grand Trunk  Pacific rail  for
transportation to a smelter.
New mineral discoveries are being reported almost every day now
that prospectors are able to get
into tbe country cheaply, owing to
the facilities provided by the railway. Central British Columbia
has been hardly touched yet by
prospectors, and the field there is
one of the most attractive in Canada for their important activities.
It is anticipated that many rich
strikes will be made during the
next few years.

It is just 100 years since the
first steam press was used to print
a newspaper. It was made in
Germany and the London Times
bought the first one made. It
could print 1,100 papers an hour
and its introduction caused a
strike among th.-. pressmen. After
a century that strike has just been
called off, The Times agreeing to
recognize the  union  this winter.

Alex. Ferguson is working fehe

Charlie Caldwell operated this

John Rinta, who has been manager at the Rambler for over a

down from the property lately,
and has sneceeded by E. A. Cable,
who has been serving as secretary-
treasurer of the company, and who
will] probably serve in a double
capacity from now on.
A total of fifteen mea is now
employed in the mines at Ainsworth, according to A. D. Wheeler,
who was in Kaslo on Tuesday.
Of this small crew the majority
are hired on the understanding
that they are to be paid partly in
stock or on the promise of payment whenever tbe mines working

ore. About a year ago some three
hundred men were working in and

Cariboo Gold
Mr. F. Howard Skinner of
Philadelphia, Pa,, who was a visitor here this week, has taken options on some valuable . hydraulic
properties on Antler Creek, in the
Barkerville mining district. Mr.
Skinner came here to investigate
mining possibilities.
The opening up of the placer
field mentioned means much for
fehe province of British Columbia,
and there is but little doubt that
the development ��� of these properties under the present economical
conditions will result in a large
production of placer gold. We
may look forward to a field almost
equal to tnat of the Yukon, as
railroad transportation advances,
for both fields, in past history, are
similar in points of good production.
In the Yukon the first gold was

The Barkerville mining district
is now entering upon its second
stage. Its hitherto remoteness
from railway transportation has
held progress in abeyance.
Last seasons cleanup by some of
the Barkerville hydraulic mines,

your way, old scout? When comes
the day of evil luck the war bag
doesn't hold a buck to keep the
wolf away; the "charge it" plan
will work no more at any market,
shop or store; no goods unless you
pay. The poor man for his money
sweats, and he should pay for
what he gets, just when he gets
the same; then, when he goes Li*
piunes to buy and see how fast tl.e
nickles fly, he dodge the spendthrift game. If you begin;, to save
your stamps, some day, with teardrops in your lamp, this writer
you will thank, when man in grief
and sickness groans .there's naught
like having fifteen bones in some
good savings bank.���Walt Mason <
The Conqueror
A little while ago, I stood by the
grave of the Old Napoleon���a magnificent tomb of gilt and gold, fiit
almost for a deity dead���and gazed
upon the sarcophagus of rare and
priceless marble, where rest at last
the ashes of that restless man. I
leaned over the balustrade and
thought about the career of the
greatest soldier of the modern
world. I saw him walking upon
tbe banks of the Seine, contemplating suicide. I saw him
at Toulon���I saw him putting
down the mob in the streets of
Paris���I saw him at the head of
the army of Italy���I saw him crossing the bridge of Lodi, with the
tricolor in his hand���I saw him in
Egypt in the phadow of the Pyramids���I saw him conqueror the
Alps and mingle the eagles of
France with the eagles of the crags.
I saw him at Marengo���at Ulm
and Austerlitz. I saw him in
Russia where the infantry of the
snow and the cavalry of the wild
blasts scattered his legions like
Winter's withered leaves. I saw
him at Leipsic in defeat and disaster���driven by a million bayonets . back upon Paris���clutched
like a wild beast���banished to
Elba. I saw him escape and retake an empire by the force of his
genius. I saw him upon the
frightful field of Waterloo, where
Chance and Fate combined to
wreck the fortunes of their former
.king. And I saw him at Saint
Helena, with his hands crossed behind him, gazing out upon the sad
and solemn sea. I thought of the
orphans and widows he had made
���of the tears that had been shed
for his glory, and of the only
woman who ever loved him. pushed from his heart by fehe cold hand
of ambition, And I said I would
far rather have been a .humble
bard-working French peasant and
worn    wooden   shoes.      I   would
t
rather have lived in a hut with a
vine growing over fehe door, and
the grapes growing, purple in the
kisses of the Autumn -sun. I
would rather have been thafe poor
peasant with my loving wife by
my side, kniting as the day died
out of the sky���with my children
upon my knees and their arms

been that man and gone down to
the tongueless silence of tbe dreamless dust, than to have been that
imperial impersonation of force
and murder, known as "Napoleon
the Great."���Robert Ingersoll.
"Charge It"
"Just chalk ife down," the poor
man said, when he had bought
some boneless bread and many
costly things, bis wife and brood
of bairns to feed Ihe most of which
they didn't need as mnch as yoa
need wings. He bnys the richest
things in town and always says,
"Just chalk ife down. I'll pay you
soon, 'you bet"; and pay-day evening finds him broke, his hard-
earned planks gone np in smoke,

who doesn't bay for cash lays in
