The owners of the Similknmeen platinum mines, claim that their's is the  oecoiid largest deposit of the mineral iu  the world. Active work is to be carried  on this summer.  The report of the Broken Hill Proprietary Company, issued last month, is  received. It is interesting to American  readers; it is the report and st'itement  of accounts of the largest profitable silver mine in'existence; it is about as far  removed from this coast as it cau well be;  the system of book-keeping is "a most  elaborate detail of infinitesimal detailf,;  the profits are princely; the methods almost totally different from ours.; The  present report of this immense,, silver  mine in New South Wales is. for the six  months ending Nov. 30, 189_. During  the previous year there was produced  6,750,569 ounces of silver 0')9 fine. There  were _07. ounces of gold produced in  the same period. The cost per ton of  the bullion was ������6.95 ia our money; five  years ago the corresponding cost was  io.79. The general manager estimates  1,0.0,000 tons of payable oxidized ore in  sight, besides as much more concentrating ores and sulphides. During the year  the cost per ton of production was reduced fp-m ������2 12s 6d per ton to ������235 7d-  The net profit for the sir months ending  Nov. 30, '94 was ������343,216 17s 8d. Ou  that day the assets of the company were  ^982,987 llfl. ~    '  RAILWAY  KU3L0U_.S.  A  Kootvnii.v   listi_c.li.���������Kxiensioii of liosslaiul  Activity nt Trail   _.__���������.���������Tin- K.i'iiri]  Ollice in Danger.  NEW DENVER.  The l.uecciiu bus shutdown for some  months and S. Harris has gone to visit  his family in the East.  The Yakima still looks well and 20  tons of ore have been shipped to the  Smelter.  Capt. Moore lias fnimed a Company  under the new Tramway Act, to build  and operate a tramway from the Idaho  and Alamo baisins to the concentrator.  Work will be commenced as soon as  the weather permits.  Captain Moore went out this week  to Duluth and will be absent about  two weeks.  Mr. Owens, the representative of  Messrs. Fraser & Glialiners, leaves on  Saturday to confer with Mr. MacKen-  zie of the Alpha on Ihe subject of  erecting a concentrator at that mine.  Mr. Byron White, who was in town  today, had some samples of ore from  the lowest tunnel in the Slocan Star.  The ore assays slightly higher than  the average run of ore in the upper  tunnels. At present the width of the  ore body has not beeu ascertained as  work as been stopped for some days  owing to the amount of water which  drains through the lodge.  There is a report that the C. P. R,  will build an electric tramway from  the Three Forks to Sancton and Cody-  Creeks and so prov-s an active competitor with the embryo Kaslo-Slocan  railway for the ores from those points.  If true", and we have traced the rumour  to a most reliable man, this will have  a most beneficial effect on rates.  GOAT RIVER.  The owners of the New Leadville  mineral claim on the north fork of  Goat River, are making arrangements  lo have the ground developed, to ascertain if the im-iiense body of solid  galena on the surface holds its width  as depth is gained.  John Fritsch intends going out this  week to do assessment work on his  claim, the Gypsy Queen, also on the  north fork of Goat River and within  half a mile of the New Leadville.  Quite a few prospectors are talking  of going up this way soon. Travelling  is good when up the river a goodly  distance and the snow is almost gone.  Considerable excitement and dissatisfaction prevailed among outside prospectors for' a time wtieii.! it was reported that a law had been passed in  the legislature debarring aliens from  staking and holding claims in British  Columbia unless the party had pre-  viously declared his intention to become a. subject of Queen Victoria. The  announcement of the Honorable the  Minister of Mines came in good time,  however, and now their fear and dissatisfaction have disappeared. It is  unfortunate that such a report got  out. lt is sure to work against the  country, having been copied very extensively. The New York Herald has  a paragraph about it. lt i. possible  that, the sales of miner's licences for  this year will show a considerable decrease which means, of course, so  many less people to develop the  country.  ���������The-inine-owners-in-this district-note,  with pleasure your ell'orts to place  before London capitalists through the  Loudon Mining Journal some information about the mines in Kootenay.  While the rush when it comes will not  strike Goat River camp..first it will  come eventually as we have some  really very line properties with surface showings that would, surprise  even Slocan.  Some of the prettiest ore I have seen  in the country was brought in the  other day from the Ivy claim on Goal  Mountain. - Assays from this claim  are away tip, probably the highest for  galena in camp.  The starting up of the smelter has  given quite an impetus to development  of properties' and several parties will  he shipping ore to Pilot Hay this  season.  Mr.. Williani Slade has been appointed bookkeeper for the dyking  company. . He comes round from Foif  Steele. Reports, from that section,  indicate that miners are looking after  their interests. They have formed a  milling -exchange or association for  the purpose of giving out'reliable information concerning mines and mineral claims in their locality.  Mr. "Wigen, manager of the President, mines on Duck Creek, expects to  hear of this Diamond drill very soon.  Word has been received that Mr. H.  B. Smith, of Keefer & Smith, C. E., of  Victoria, will be in -this summer to  survey the company's land into 40 acre  lots and other work. He has sent in  orders to have ten men hired, for him  and expects that the work will last  from high water until snow. flies.  Talking, of high water^ reports from  all over the country agree, that there  is comparatively little snow on the  mountains, so with ordinary weather  we hope to have low watei this year,  which will be a good thing for those  who lost their all last year, thus allowing them to put in a'greater acreage.  The engineers of the Calgary and  Alberta dredges are now on the works  doing necessary repairs. ' The latter  will be placed on rails instead of as  heretofore hauling her ahead with wire  cables.  ��������� The stack's of cord wood on the banks  of the Kootenay are. evidence that  there was something besides loafing  going on among the boys last winter.  The first" j-He is at the Si wash camp and  contains over GtKJ cords, next further  up one of 400, one this side of Rykert's  OW), and one between Rykerts aud  Boundary another COO cordsj  besides  about COO more west of customs house i  mi   the   foothills.     In   all   there   are  about    3,0(K)    cords    banked   for    the  dyking company.  Your correspondent took a trip over  to Goat River the other day and halted  for a short time at Willow Giove, the  ranch and residence of Mr. Fred G.  Little, late superintendent of the dyking company. After luncheon he  showed me over his place and I must  own that what I saw surprised me���������  was convincing evidence of what a  man can do who goes ahead as if he  meant it. Mr. Little has been ou his  ranch for about two years and in that  short time has transformed the wilder:  ness into a rose garden, metaphorically  speaking. He has erected a comfort-  aole and commodious dwelling house,1  the interior of which, more especially  his own "don," is fitted up in most  gorgeous style. The walls are' studded  with trophies of the chase, weapons  and nick-nacks, while the carpet is  strewn with the skins of. animals  (more or less rare) indigenous to  Kootenay. He has a large . stable and  granary, a root house of large dimensions, hennery, hog pens, duck pens  and everything necessary and handy.  A creek flows through the ranch  which he has utilized by having it run  so that all the animals in the different  houses and enclosures can take advantage of it. He has had set out for  some time apple trees by the score and  as many varieties, pear trees from the  Eastern States as well as from the  Pacific slope, plums iu endless variety  and walnuts. Currant and gooseberry  bushes he has now ready to set out,  besides, other kinds of berry bushes  coming in. Besides all these he cultivates the usual standby crops to perfection, potatoes, turnips, beets, parsnips, oats, wheat, etc., etc. We  walked back of his place where a  splendid view was obtained of Goat  River, com ing rushing along at eight  miles an hour. AVhat a great amount  of power is here which will be utilized  some time,���������perhaps very soon, for if  Ihe Crow's Nest Raihoad ever conies  this way it will go through Mr. Little's  ranch. With thesurroundihgeountry  teaming with mineral���������copper, silver  and gold ore; with thousands of acres,  I might say hundreds of thousands of  acres, of "land surrounding it, the  quality of which is not surpassed under the sun, with timber land all round  and in close proximity, and last but. by  no means least with the power that  could be obtained from the swift  rushing Goat River, this would be aii  ideal place.  Mr. Little's neighbour is Mr. Dow  on the one'side and Mr. John Arrow-  smith on the other, both of whom  have very good ranches. Besides  these there are numerous others.and  it is reported that some Swedes have  staked off farms close; by. That class  of settlers as a rule ai e thrifty and get  along well even amid hardships, but  where they have located there is nothing to deter them from making a good  showing in a very short time.  A letter received by a resident of tho  valley from Captain T. J.. Da vies (who  is now in England) says that it is his  intention to come out to Kootenay  this summer.  On Thursday morning we had quite  a thunderstorm accompanied ' with  lightning.  Geese are fairly plentiful up here,  much more so than at this date last  year, but ducks are scarce, very few  having been seen up to date".  Jack O'Neil has gone out with parties  to do his assessment work on the  Nancy Hanks.  George Ross and Walter Jones have  just gone down to do assessment work  on'Duck Cieek claims, thei-iiascoj etc.  The "llalys" stamboat, which plies  between Bonner's Ferry and boundary  line, is expected ,in soon. She. would  have been down before this but she  required two feet of water more to  float her from where she was lying all  winter.  KAST.O."  The ollicei- and members of Kaslo  Lodge (Masonic) were entertained by  four of the new brethren ' tit the -Slocmi  ou Tuesday evening. After partaking of  a substantial supper speeche. aud songs  appropriate to tlie occasion were given  by the members. "God ..Save the Qii.eii"  wits given aud. brought to a close a very  pleasant evening.  Police Magistrate Wright has had a  busy week; .Several cases were disposed  Of by him." One. in particular created  somewhat of a flutter. It was one in  which oue of the leading hotel men was  accused of assaulting the police otlicer.  A line of ������50 was "imposed.  Messrs. Waggoner and Kennedy iiave  bonded two of their claims near Trout  Lake for S 15,000 to parlies iu Spokane.  They still have.four claims on the same  group on which they have a good showing of high grade ore. Ou one of the  claims,1 on which they have done considerable .work, they have five feet of  clean ore.  Mark Gilliam returned from Spokane  on Wednesday evening..  A large and 'influential- gathering of  Kaslo's citizens met iD the Manse (Presbyterian) on Monday - eveniug last. The  occasion was the much regretted departure of Mr. Hunter, the missionary in  charge, who has well and faithfully conducted the affairs ot the church for the  past twelve monte. As an evidence of  the hea; ty sympathy entertained for Mr.  Hunter, and indicative iu the most practical form of the good wishes with which  he departs, it might be mentioned that  he was presented with a purse of fifty  dollars. He was deeply touched on  receipt of the gift and suitably responded, expressing his sincerest thanks' aud  regret at leaving' so many whom he  loved aud felt sure was loved by. .Mr.  Hunter has steadfastly stuck up for a  higher moral standard in the town and  his eHbrts, though decried by some, have  won him the admiration of the many. He  left fuesday morning, via Bonner's Ferry,  for Manitoba College, Winnipeg, where  he resumes Ids studies.   Eon vo^ a_-e l  KOSSLAND.  Tlie Josie mine is looking exceptionally  well. Eight men are working on the two  shifla. The tunnel is 200 feet in from  . he surface with 4 feet 9 in. of ore in the  lace. Over 100 tons of picked ore is  lying on the dump awaiting shipment.  Work on the Monita was stopped yes-  erday at noon. No reason has been  issigued.  The reports circulated last week to the  iflect that the War Eagle vein was  .duelling out have been proved to be  vit.hout foundation. The mine never  looked belter than now.  'Scrub locators-are very busy in the  camp, the hills presenting in some places  'he appeiirence of a stockade fence.  These gentry appear to have fogotten  that they are now ou the wrong side of  the 49th parallel for such proceedings to  be profitable. Many of them will be  sadder and wiser meu before tbe summer  arrives.  Messrs. Hunter Bros, have just received 810,000 worth of goods and are  busy unpacking and "fixing up."  The Kaslo Provision Co. will open  their new store at the end of Spokane St.  in a few days. <������������������  Mr. Price's tailoring establishment, opposite the War Eagle Hotel will be completed in a few days.  G.'A. Bigelow's store is supposed to  have been broken into last Saturday  evening. The enterprising burgular got  away with some ..300, mostly in checks.  Captain Fitzstubbs arrived last Tuesday accompanied by Mr. John Kirkup.  Mr. Kirkup was formerly constable and  government agent at Kevelstoke, where  his fairness and close attention to duty  earned for him the respect and friendship of all with whom he came in contact.  He was formally installed as agent and  recorder by Capt. Fitzstubbs on Wednesday and has opened the record office in  the McDonald building on Columbia  Avenue.  Dr. Hermann Keller's.house on Columbia Avenue will be completed on Thursday. Dr. Keller will soon erect a hospital:  Proper post oflice accommodation is  badly needed. At present there is practically none.  Joe Brown and his partner have struck  a fine. lead on the St. Paul. There is  every indication that the St. Paul will  make a mine.  - (The above reached us too late for our last  edition.)  Messrs. Wharton and Cook, the owners  of the Cliff miue, have driven their tunnel nearly 90 feet. The ore assays $18  iu gold.  Ed. Welch is pushing the work ou the  Gold Hill. He reports the vein, improving in width and richness.  David. Stussi has two men at work on  the High Ore.  Bill Springer is hard at work on the  No. 1. The vein is six feet wide aud  assays $40 to the ton.  The Mountain View has recently been  bonded for 825,000.  Arrangements are about to be made  for the sale or lease of building allotments on that part of the railroad addition to'the townsite of Rossland. which  lies on the Alice mineral claim. Mr.  Frank C Loring has empowered George  T. Crane of Spokane to make, the necessary contracts and arrangements with  parties wishing to build or otherwise  occupy the surface.  ���������The-Record-o__ce-had.a-narrow__e3cape-  from destruction on Thursday last, the  stovepipe becoming overheated and setting fire to the roof. Our gallant recorder, however, mounted a ladder and performed prodigies of valour and aided by  numerous volunteers soon got the fire  under and averted a catastrophe.  The Okauagon claim at the foot of  Monte Cristo Mot.ntain'looks very well.  Already the vein is five feet in width and  shows indications of widening still further. >    ������������������  The camp generally is active aud there  is. every indication of steady development. AVork is progressing on nearly  all of the claims which have been bonded or sold during the past three months.  The only clog ou the foot of progress  appears to be the want 'of ready mouey,  caused to a great extent by the comparative isolation forced upon us by .the lack  of goods roads. The Northport road in  particular is very deep and heavy and is  a fine example of the folly of "saving at  tbe spigot and wasting at the bunghole."  It is to be hoped, however, that with the  advent of warmer weather the congealed  energies of the people most Concerned  will awake to the necessity of keeping  this line of communication with the outer  world in proper order;..  A great number of buildings are going  up,, both ou the townsite and on the  slopes above it, but owing to the difficulty of getting lumber the work progresses only by fits and starts. Although  the two saw-mills are kept running to  their fullest capacity they are quite unable to satisfy the rapacity of.our local  house builders. -  The O. K. stamp, mill is shut down  pending the arrival and setting up of new  and more powerful machinery. The new  mill will probably be ready for work iu  about two weeks.  Owing to the bad state pi the Trail i  Creek road the shipment of ore from the !  Le'Roi has been temporarily suspended.!  America.   It is unusual foi  a storm to  cross the Rocky Mountains.  W. Wilson came back from Spokane  on Wednesday night's train bringing  with him fifteen horses which he  bought in Washington for his teaming  business.  The Rosslnnd Miner is becoming  known as the Rossland Echo. Its  sentiments so very plainly follow the  lead, sometimes almost in the same  words, of the Tribune. '���������  AVe have received from Stanley,  A'ictorieu Sardou's book "Madame Sims-  Gene," which in the form of a play is  exciting a great interest both in Europe  aud America. A review will appear next  week.  Mr. G. Alexander, of the Kootenay  Reclamation Company, has brought in  farm stock from' Calgary with which to  commence operations on the Kootenay  meadows. The company will have 7,000  acres enclosed this year.  By the train on Friday night a number  of people arrived iu town among whom  were Messrs. Mara, G. Alexander, H. E.  MacDonnell who succeeds J. Anderson  as C. P. R. freight agent. J. B. Ferguson  of AVinnipeg and J. II. AVest.  Mr. Price, the tailor, has joined thc  great, army of emigrants who have  moved out to Rossland. it will not  be long before he and the rest all come  .looping back to Nelson, with plenty  of money we hope, to start afresh in  Kootenay's capital,  Messrs. Traves and Farley have just  purchased a number of steers and hogs  from the ranch of His Excellency the  Governor General at Vernon. They are  expected in next week. This firm is getting famed for the excellence of its beef-  stakes and has got a -reputation to keep  up.  Jas. Anderson the well known freight  agent of the C. P. It., came iu on Tuesdays train from Robson. We are afraid  that we shall not see him so often as we  should like, as he has been promoted to  the head of the Seattle agency. "Jimmy"  Anderson is an example of what a popular man can do for an unpopular company.  The Swedish Consul in London has  persuaded his government to send a deputation of Norwegian farmers to iuspect  the farming lands in the Kootenay Valley. He will arrive next week accompanied by two Norwegian agriculturists  and will visit the land of the Reclamation  Company.  The Nelson and Fort Sheppard line  is iu better shape again and. trains are  arriving before midnight, that is to say.  only five or six hours late. The company proposes to run daily trains between Spokane and Northport (tor Rossland) coming on three times a week to  Nelson.  The advent "of spring sets everyone  thinking of uew clothes. Gilker & AVells  are prepared for the rush and have been  opening up large imports of new lines in  general clothing at their stores at Nelson and Pilot Bay. Several novelties  will be found among the stock, such as  underwear of California flauuel from the  celebrated Stockton Mills.  The difficulty about this climate in the  winter is lo find some kind of. walking  gear suitable for all the different kinds  of weather one meets in a day. If you  go out iu the morning with mocassins  on, you want to come home in gum boots.

The long standing dispute between the  Dominion government and the government of British Columbia regarding the  lands in the railway belt, was finally adjusted at a conference between Chief  Justice Davie, Sir Mackenzie Bowell,  Hon. T. M. Daly and Hon. John Hag-.  gart on 28th ulto. By this settlement  the - Dominion' agrees, upon receiving  from thc Province the moneys the latter  obtained in payment for lands in the  railway belt, to issue Dominion patents  to the holders of those lands, provided  they are uot already covered by patents  issued by the D.minion. The registration concession by the provincial legislature was also confirmed.  A third question settled was that of  the delimitation of the railway belt  boundaries. It has been a subject of  much futile negotiation for years, the  the difficulty beiug to locate the lands  iu conformity with any system of survey,  aud at tho exact distance of twenty miles  on cither side of such a tortuous line as  the C. P. R. follows through the mountainous regions. It has beeu achieved,  however, by so modifying the exact parallels which represent the twenty mile  boundaries as to make them conform to  township lines. This involved, of course,  a lot of "give and take," but iu the bulk  the sections cut by the exact bouudary"  have'bceifpretty -fairly apportioned betweeu the railway- company and the  province. To the people of Kevelstoke  the provincial recognition of the Dominion patents and vice versa will be a great  boon. ,"  At the conference- the subject of the  granting of part of the Soughees reserve  to Victoria for railway purposes, the  protection ot Indians aud the prevention  of smuggling on the Northwest coasts of  British, Columbia were also discussed,  but no defiuite arrangements were reached.- ���������Colon 1st. . *-   -  The University Boat lta.ee.

KARMA.  Pandu, a-Wealthy jeweler of the  Brahman caste, was traveling with a  .orvant in a carriage on some lucrativo  business to Varanasi, and overtaking on  his way a monk of venerable appearance who was walking in tho same direction he thought to himself: "This  shramana looks -��������� noblo and saintly.  Companionship with good men brings  luck. Should ho also be going to Varanasi I will invite him to ride with mo  In my carriage."  Having saluted the shramana, ho told  him whither lie was driving and at  what inn he intended to stay in Varanasi. Learning that the shramana,  whose name was Narada, also was traveling to Varanasi, ho asked him to accept a seat in bis carriage.  "I am obliged to you for your kindness," said tho shramana to the Brahman, "for I am quite worn out by"tho  long journey. Bavin**; no possessions in  this world, I cannot rjpay you in money,  but it may happen that I can reward  you with some spiritual treasure out of  the wealth of the* information :I havo  received whilo following Shakyamuni,  tbe blessed one, the groat Buddha, the  teacher of mankind."  Both traveled together in' tho carriage, and Pandu listened with pleasure  to the instructive discourse of Narada.  After an hour's journey they came to a  place where the road had become almost  impassable by a washout caused by a  recent rain, and a farmor's cart with a  broken wheel prevented farther progress. Devala, tho owner of the cart,  was on his way to Varanasi to sell his  rice and was anxious to reach tho town  beforo tho dawn of tho next morning.  If he was delayed a day or two longer,  the rice merchants might have left town  or bought all the stock they, needed.  When tho jeweler saw that ho could  not proceed on his way unless the farmer's cart was removed, he began to grow  'angry and ordered Mahaduta, his slave,  to push the cart aside so that his carriage could pass by. Tho farmer remonstrated, because, it being so near'  the slope of the road, it would imperil  his cargo, but tho Brahman would not  listen to the farmer and bade his servant overturn tho rico curt and push it  aside. Mabaduta, an unusually strong  man, who seemed to take delight in tho  injury of others, obeyed before the shramana could interfere. When Pandu  was about to continue his travel, the  shramana jumped out of the carriago  and said:    -  "Excuse mo, sir, for leaving you  hem I am under obligations for your  kindness in giving me an hour's ride in  your carriage. I was tired when you  picked me up on the road, but now,  thanks to your courtesy, I am rested,  and recognizing in this farmer an incarnation of 0110 of your ancestors I cannot repay your kindness better than by  assisting him in his troubles."  The Brahman looked at tho shramana  - in amazement. "That farmer, you say,  is an incarnation of one of my ancestors?   That is impossible."  "I know," replied the shramana,  "that you are not aware of the numer-'  ~<ft__"i__ portaiit "relations* which" tie"your  fate to that of the farmer. But the blind  man cannot be expected to see, so I regret that you do. harm to yourself, and  I shall .try to protect you against the  wounds which you are about to inflict  upon yourself.''  Tho wealthy merchant was hot accustomed to bo reprimanded, and feeling  that the words of the shraniaua, although uttered with great kindness,  contained a stinging.reproach bade his  . servant drivo..on without furthor delay.  The shramana saluted Dovala, the  farmer, and began to help him repair  his cart and load up the rice, part of  which'had been thrown out; Tho work  proceeded quickly, and Devala thought:  "This shramana must  bo a  holy man.  - Invisible devas seem to assist him. I  will ask him how I deserved tho ill  treatment at the hands of tho proud  Brahman."    And ho..said:   -  "Venerable sir, can you tell mc why  I suffer  an  injustico  from a  man  to  whom I have never done any harm?"  .     And tho shramana said:  "My dear friend, you do not suffer  an injustice,-but only receive in your  present stato tlio same trentment which  you visited upon tho.jeweler in a former life, and if I am uot mistaken in  reading tho thought of your mind 1  should say that you would, even today,  havo done -.the saiuo thing unto the  jeweler if he had been "in your placo and.  if you had such a strong slave at your  command as ho has, able to deal with  you at his pleasure."  .. 'Tho farmer confessed that if ho had  had the! power he would have folt little  compunction in treating another man  who happened to impede his way as he  had been treated by the. Brahman,.but  thinking of tho retribution attendant  ��������� upon unkind deeds he resolved to be  more considerate in the future with his  fellow beings.  ��������� The rico was loaded, and both traveled on to Varanasi, when allot a sudden  tbe horse jumped aside. "A snake, a  . snake!" shouted the farmer. But the  shramana looked closely at the object at  .which the horse shuddered, jumped out  "of the cart and saw that it was. a purse  full of gold, and the idea struck him:  "No one else but tbe wealthy jeweler  can have lost this purse."  He took the purse, and handing it to  the farmer said:  "Take this purse, and %vheu you como  to Varanasi drive up to the inn which  I shall point out to you, ask for Panda,  tho Brahman, and deliver the purse.  "Ho will excuse himself for the rudeness with which be treated yon, but tell  him that you have forgiven him and  wish him success in all his undertakings, for, let me tell you, tho more  successful ho is tho better you will  prosper. Your fato depends in many respects upon his fate. Should the jeweler  demand any explanation scud him to  the vihara. where he shall find me ready  to assist him with advice in case ho  may feel tho need of it."  Pandu in tho meantime arrived at  Varanasi and mot Mallika, iiis busiuess  friend, a rich banker.  "I am a ruined man," said Mallika,  "and can do no business with you unless I can buy a cart of tho best rico for  tho king's table. There is a rival banker  in Varanasi, who, learning that0I had  made a contract with tho royal treasurer  to deliver the rice tomorrow morning  and being desirous to bring about my  destruction, has bought up all the rico  iu Varanasi. Tho royal treasurer must  have received a bribe, for ho will not  release nio from my contract, and tomorrow I shall bo a ruined man unless  Kirshna will scud an angel from heaven  'to help me."  While Mallika was lamenting the  ���������poverty to which his rival would reduce  him Pandu missed his purse. Searching  his carriage without being able to find  it, he suspected his slave Mahaduta, and  calling the police accused him of theft  and had him bound and cruelly tortured  to extort confession. Tbe slave iu His  agonies cried: "I am innocent. Let mo  go, for I cannot stand this pain. I am  quite innocent at least of this crime and  suffer now for other sins. Oh, that I  could beg the farmer's pardon whom for  the sake of my master I wronged without any cause! This torture, I bolievo,  is a punishment for my rudeness.''  While tho police officer was still applying the lash to the back of the slave  the farmer arrived at the inn, and to  tho great astonishment of all concerned  delivered tho purse. The slave was at  once released from the hands of his torturer. But being dissatisfied with his  master he secretly left and joined a  band of robbers in the mountains, who  made him their chief on account of his  great strength and courage.  When Mallika hoard that the farmer  had the best rice to sell, fit for delivery  to the royal table, he bought at ��������� once  the whole cartload for treble the price;  that the farmer had ever received, aud  Pandu, glad at heart to have his money  returned, hastened at once to the vihara  to receive further explanations from  Narada, the shramana.  Narada said: "I might give thee an  explanation, but knowing that thou art  unable to understand a spiritual truth  I prefer to remain silent. However, I  shall give thee some advice: Treat every  man whom thou meetest as thy own.  self; .serve him as thou wouldst demand  to be served thyself, for thus thou shalt  sow a sowing of good deeds, the rich  harvest of which thou will not fail to  reap. "  "Give me, O shramana, the explanation," said the jeweler, "and I shall  thereby be better able to follow your  advice."  Tbe shramana said: "Listen then. I  will give you thc key to the mystery.  If you do not understand it, have faith  in .what I say. Self is an illusion, and  he whose mind is bent upon following  self follows an ignis fatuus which leads  him into the quagmire of sin. The illusion of self is the veil pf Maya that  blinds yonr eyes and prevents you from  recognizing the close relations that obtain botween yourself and yonr fellows  and from tracing the identity of yourself in the souls of other beings. Ignorance is the source of sin. There aro few  who-know-the-tr'uth;-���������Let-this-motto  be your talisman: - .  " 'He who hurts others injures himself.  " 'Ho who helps others advances his  own interests.  " 'Lot the delusion of self disappear  from your mind, and you will naturally walk in the path of truth.  " 'To him whose vision is dimmed by  the veil of Maya the spiritual world appears to be' cut up iuto innumerable  selves. Thus he will bo puzzled in many  ways concerning the transmigration of  soul life and will bo incapable of understanding the import of an all conipre-.  hensivo kindness toward all living beings.' "  The jeweler replied: "Your words, O  venerable sir, havo a deep significance,  and 1 shall bear them in mind. I extended a small kindness which caused  mo no expense whatover to a poor shramana on my way to Varanasi, and, lo,  how propitious has beeu the result 1 I  am deeply in your debt, for without you  I should not only have lost- my purse,  but would have been prevented from  doing business in Varanasi. which greatly increased my wealth, while if it had  been left undone it might have reduced  me to a stato of wretched poverty. In addition, your thoughtfulness and the arrival of the.farmer's rice cart preserved  the prosperity of my, friend Mallika,  the banker. If all men saw'the truth of  your ma\ims, how much better the  world would "bo; how greatly evils  would be lesspued and public welfaro  enhanced Iu As I am anxious to let the  truth of Buddha be understood, I shall  found' a vihara at my native place,  Kaushambi, and invite yon to visit me,  so that I may dedicate the place to the  brotherhood of Buddha's disciples."  Years passed on, and Piindu's vihara  at Kaushambi became a place in which  wise shramaiias used to stay, and it was  renowned as a center of enlightenment  for the people of the town. - '  At that time the king of a neighboring country had heard of the beauty of  Pandu's jewelry, and he sent his treasurer to order a royal diadem wrought  in pure gold and set with the most precious stones in India.  When Pandu had finished the work,  he started for the residence of the king,  and as lie expected to transact other  profitable business took with him a  great store of goldpieces.

This misfortune was a blow to Panda's  prosperity, and as he suffered somo other severo losses his wealth was much  reduced.  'Pandu was much distressed, but' he  bore his misfortunes without complaint,  thinking to himself: "I have deserved  these losses for the sins committed in  my past existence.  In my younger years  1 was very hard on other people. When  now I reap tho harvest of my evil deeds,  2 have no cause for complaint."  As he had grown in kindliness toward all beings, his misfortunes only  served to purify his heart, and his chief  regret when thinking of his reduced  means was that he had become unable  to do good and to help his friends in  the vihara to spread the truths of religion.  Again years passed on, and it happened that Panthaka, a young shramana and a disciple of Narada, was traveling through the mountains of Kaushambi, and ho fell among the robbers  in the mountains. As ho had - nothing  in his possession, thc robber chief beat  him severely and let him go. On the  next morning Panthaka, while pursuing his way through" the woods, heard  a noise as of quarreling and fighting  men, and going to the place ho saw a  number of robber.--, all of them in a  great rage, and in the midst of them  stood Mahaduta, their chief. ��������� And tho  chief was desperately fighting them,  like a lion surrounded by hounds, and  ho slew several of ' bis aggressors with  formidable blows, but there were too  many against one. At last he succumbed and fell to tho ground as if dead,  covered with fatal wounds. -  As soon as tho robbers had left the  place the young shramana approached  to see whether ho could bo of any assistance to tlio wounded men.. Ho found  that all the robbers were dead, and  there was only a little life left in the'  chief. Ho at once went down to the lifc-  tlo brooklet which was murmuring near  by, fetched fresh water in his bowl and  brought it to the dying man. Mahaduta  opened his eyes, and gnashing his teeth  said:  "Where are those ungrateful dogs  whom I havo led to victory and success? Without me as their chief they  will soon perish like, jackals hunted  down by skillful hunters. "  "Do not think of your comrades, the  companions of your sinful life,'' said  Panthaka, "but think of your soul and  accept in the last moment the chance of  salvation that is offered you. Here is  water to drink, and let me dress your  wounds. Perhaps I may save your life.''  ���������"Alas.-alas!" -.eplied-Mabaduta.-'-'are  you^not the man whom I beat but yesterday, and now you come to my assistance to assuage my pain? You bring  me fresh water to quench my thrist and  try to save my life. -It is useless, honorable sir. I am a doomed man. The  churls have wounded mo unto death, the  ungrateful cowards. Thoy have dealt  me the blows which I taught them."  "You real) what you have sown,"  continued the shramana. "Had you  taught your comrades acts of kindness  you .would havo received from them acts  of kindness, but having taught them the  lesson of slaughter it is but your own  deed that you are slain by their hands."  "True, very" true," said tho robber  chief. "My fate is well deserved, but  .how sad is my lot, that I must reap the  full, harvest of all my evil deeds in future existence. Adviso me, O holy sir,  what 1 can do to lighten the sins of my  life, which oppress mo like a great rock  placed upon my breast, taking away the  breath of my lungs."  Said Panthaka: "Root out your sinful desires; destroy all evil passions  and fill your soul with kindness toward all your fellow beings."  The robber chief said:- "I have done,  much evil and no good. How can I extricate myself from tho net of sorrow  which,I have woven out of tbe evil desires of my own heart? My karma will  lead me to hell, and I shall' never. bo  able to walk on the path of salvation."  Said the shraniaua: "Indeed your  karma will in its future incarnations  reap the seeds of evil that you havo  sown. There is no escape for an evil-  doer-from the consequences of his own  actions. But there is no cause for despair. The man who is converted and  has rooted out the illusion of self, .with  all its lusts and sinful desires, will bo  a source of blessing to himself aiid others.  "As an illustration I will tell yon tho  story of the great robber Kandara, who  died,without repentance and was reborn  as a demon in hell, where he suffered  for his evil deeds the most terrible agonies and pains. Ho had been in hell  several kalpas and was unable to rise  out of his wretched condition' when  Buddha appeared upon earth and attained to the blessed state of enlightenment. . At that memorable moment a  ray of light fell down into hell, quickening all the demons with life and  hone,  and   the robber Kan data cried  aloud: 'O blessed Buddha, have mor-  cy upon mo. I suffer greatly, and although I havo dono evil I am anxious  to walk in the noble path of righteousness. But I cannot extricate myseif  from the not of sorrow. Help me, O  Lord; havo mercy on nie.'  "Now, it is the law of Karma that  evil deeds lead to destruction, for absolute evil is so bad that it cannot exist.  Absolute evil involves the impossibility  of existence. Bnt good deeds lead to  life. Thus thero is a final end of every  deed that is done, but there is no end  in the development of good deeds. The  loast act of goodness bears fruits containing now seeds of goodness, and they  continue to grow; they nourish tho soul  in its weary transmigrations until it  reaches the final deliverance from all  evil in Nirvana. When Buddha, the  lord, heard the prayer of the demon  suffering in .hell, ho sent down a spider  on a cobweb, and the spider said, 'Take  hold of the web and climb up. ��������� When  the spider had again disappeared out of  sight, Kandata made great efforts to  climb up, and he succeeded. The web  was so strong that it held, aud he ascended higher and higher. Suddenly  ho felt tho thread trembling and shaking, for behind him other fellow sufferers of his were beginning to climb up.  Kandata became frightened. Ho saw  tlio thinness of the web and observed  that it was elastic, for under the weight  it stretched out, yet it still seomed  strong enough to carry him. Kandata  had heretofore only looked up; he now  looked down and saw following closo  upon his.heels, also climbing up on the  cobweb, a numberless mob of the denizens of hell. How can this thin thread  bear the weight of all,- ho thought to  himself, and seized with fear he shouted loudly: 'Let go the cobweb! It is  mine!' At onco the cobweb broke, and  Kandata fell back into hell.  "The illusion of self was still upon  Kandata. He uid not know the miraculous power of a sincere longing to rise  upward and enter' tho noble path" of  righteousness. It is thin like a cobweb,  but it will carry millions of people, and  the more thero are that climb it the  easier will bo the efforts of every ono of  them. But as soon as in a man's heart  the idea arises: 'This is mine. Lot the  bliss of righteousness be mine alone and  let uo one else partako of it,' the thread  breaks, and you fall back into your old  condition of selfhood, for selfhood is  damnation, and truth is bliss. What is  hell? It is nothing but egotism, and  Nirvana is a life of righteousness. "  "Let me take hold of a spider  web," said the dying robber chiof when  the shramana had finished his story,  "and I shall pull myself up out of the  depth of hell."  Mahaduta lay for awhile quiet to collect his thoughts.    Then he continued:  "Listen, honorable sir. I will make  -acoufession���������Iwas-tho servant of-Pan-  du, the jeweler of Kaushambi, but  when he unjustly had me tortured I ran  away and became a chief of robbers.  Some time ago when I heard through  my spies that he was passing through  'tho mountains I succeeded in' robbing  him of a great part of his wealth. Will  you now go to him and tell him that I  have forgiven him from the bottom of  my heart the injury which he has unjustly inflicted upon me aud ask lain to  to pardon mo for having robbed him?  Whilo I staid with him his heart was  as hard as stone, and I learned to imi  tate the selfishness of his character." I  have hoard that ho has become benevolent and is now pointed out asau example of goodness and justice. I do not  wish to remain in his debt. Thereforo  inform him that I havo kept the gold  crown which ho wrought for tho king  and all his treasures and havo hidden  them in a cave near by. Tli.ro were  only two of the robbers under my command who knew of it, and both are  now dead. Let Pandu take a number of  armod men and conic'to tho place and  take back tho, property of which I have  deprived him."  Then Mahaduta described the situation of the cavo and died in the arms of  Panthaka..  As soon as Panthaka, the young shramana, had reached Kaushambi he went  to the jeweler and gavo him a full account of his recent adventure in tho  forest. And Pandu went with an escort  of armed men and secured the treasures  which the robber chief had concealed in  the cave, aud tbey buried tho robber  chief and his slain comrades with all  honors, and Panthaka. spoke at the  grave, discoursing on the words of  Buddha:    ' .  "By oneself "evil is done; by oneself  one suffers;  "By oueself evil is left undone; by  oneself ono is purified.  "Purity'and impurity belong to oneself.    No one can purify another.   ^  "You yourself- must make an effort.  The Buddhas are only preachers.  "Our karma,"- tho shramana said;  ' 'is not the work of Ishvara or Brahma  or Indra or of any one of the gods. Our  karma is the product of our own actions.  My action is the womb that bears me.  It is the inheritance which devolves  upon me.

The sharp rise in silver has naturally  enlivened the whole district. As soon  as the movement started we mado arrangements to publish our daily telegrams, giving the latest New York  quotations. It. is scarcely necessary to  say that the strain was loo much for  the C. P. R. telegraph system, and  when silver had reached 67i on Tuesday it promptly gave out. It might  well be called the Tired Horse system,  as it always fails when most, wanted.  We are afraid that the rise is too  sharp and sudden to attain permanency. Its cause was pretty well understood here even before journals  from the outside reached us. The fol-  lowingextract from Bradstrcet's clearly  explains its nature:  "The movement ��������� was attributed in  part to the belief that Germany will  take the initiative in calling an international monetary conference, and in  part to the favourable Indian budget,  arid to the belief that the termination  of the war in the East is near, which  would probably create large demand  for silver from both Japan and China.  The market, however, has also been  influenced by speculation, one of the  rumors current in London being that  heavy purchases had beeu made for  American account, though this report  cannot of course be traced."  Though this may indicate that no  permanence at the highest quotation  can be relied on yet it would appear  that there is ground for hope that the  low prices which have ruled for so long  are over and done with, and that a  slightly higher level may he maintained until the conference meets. This  level will of ccuise be liable to ttuctnations as details of the personnel and  duties of the meeting become known.  The fluctuations will also be modified  or increased by the actions of speculators. But into the dim future beyond the meeting of the conference no  eye may look.  AT   WHAT PRICE?  The question of the incorporation of  Newfoundland wiih Lhe Dominion of  Canada is assuming definite shape. A  delegation from "Britain's oldest  colony" .011 that subject is visiting  Ottawa. It is composed entirely of  supporters of the present Newfoundland Government. Public opinion  seems to think that such a question  onght not to be one of party, but  rather a popular one, and the delegates  should include men of both parties.  Thus tho consent to any arrangement  that may be arrived at would bealniost,  if not quite, unanimous. But it is possible that the Newfoundlanders have  not lived in such close relationship  with Canada under a Conservative  government for nothing. They see in  the coining deal great opportunities  for plunder and the government vultures are determined to keep it all to  themselves. This feeling of "what is  there in it for me" was well exemplified by a celebrated American, who on  the death of Lord Bkaconsfield was  at a loss to understand how a man  who negotiated the purchase of the  Suez Canal shares could be so comparatively poor. He shook his head  and sorrowed exceedingly over what  he regarded as a most shamefully neglected opportunity. That this feeling  exists in Canada today cannot be  doubted. In the haggling over the  sale of the independence of the old  colony, her "statesmen" will no doubt  find ample opportunity of lining their  own nests. Recent disclosures in the  isiaud have not decreased the likelihood of such proceedings.  Amongst other demands which Newfoundland makes as the price for  placing her neck under the Dominion  yoke is that a tunnel shall be constructed under the Straits of Belle Isle,  through which a. railwayshall be built  to connect St. Johns with Quebec.  Now this is probably not so great an  undertaking as ihe C. P. R., but still  it is enormous. The shortest length of  such a railway would be 1;200, miles,  and the tunnel under the straits would  have to be 12 miles in length. We  suppose that in asking the rich manufacturers of Canada to build this line  for them the unfortunate inhabitants  of Newfoundland are unaware ..that  their part of the bargain will be to pay  through the nose (and through the  tunnel) for everything they get. To tie  themselves hand and foot to deal with  Canadian manufacturers and to sell  themselves body and soul to their railway. Ifc would not be surprising if  our own Sir William tried to get control of that railway.  Brifish Columbia is gradually getting  itself known in the'old country. In  the Journal of the Imperial Institute for March we read: "B. C. now  occupies space both in the Upper and  Lower Galleries and shows amongst  its new exhibits a handsome collection  of siiilf'ed birds, illnsttating the sporting resources of the province, and_ a  fine display of photographs. The mineral collection has also been augmented. The forestry display is good and  when the anticipated fruit and fish  collections arrive the natural resources  of the province will be well represented." very good; but the greatest of  all these natural resources is mining.  We dp not see that our friends'the  farmers aud cattlemen have any show  at all in the above, but if our mining  industries are only pushed the welfare  of the farmer follows as a matter of  course. The agriculturist can have no  better market than a country inhabited by thousands of well paid miners.  In another part of the same journal  there is a reference to Cariboo, declaring that "there seems at present to be  good reason for suspecting the presence  (there) of a large quantity of the precious metal." When will Kootenay  get itself known? On the Coast it is  Cariboo, Cariboo, Cariboo, but no one  ever hears of Kootenay. And yet,  without being unduly puffed up, we  firmly believe that Kootenay offers  certain inducements to the capitalist.  KODAK   AGENTS.  Amateur Work Developed.

FLEMING    BROTHERS  111 Government Street, Victoria.        98  Ft is a little startling to read that  General Booth of the Salvation Army  will organize the Canadian Exhibit at  the forthcoming Exhibit ion of Colonial  resources at the Agricultural Hall,  London. There is no doubt that the  General is a master of the art of "jaw  bone" advertising, by which he has  pushed himself and his army into  great prominence during the last five  years, but it is a new departure to see  the greatest of Britain's dependencies  employing him as showman of her corn  ana wine and oil, The natural sequence would be to get the Archbishop  of Canterbury to take charge of the  canned fish department while the Pope  of Rome could descant on the richness  of Kootenay and Cariboo.

We have received the first number  of The Budget., a weekly paper published in Vancouver.

It states its intention of  widening all its columns shortly. In  Dominion politics it supports the  liberal party.  ENGLAND _-- THE UNITED STATES.  Recent exchanges explain the cause  of the trouble between Great Britain  and the United States in Venezuela.  The boundary between this latter  -_country-and_British_G.niiUia_has._ne_ver.  been definitely settled, and it is in the  settlement of this question that the  difficulty arises. It so happens that  the mouth of the Orinoco River lies in  the disputed territory. This river is  navigable for vessels of the largest  size for 400 miles and futher forms the  piain trade artciy for the whole of the  northern portion of South America.  Communication in that country is entirely by river. The importance of the  ownership of the mouth can therefore  easily be estimated. Just off the mouth  and a little to the westward lies the  British island of Trinidad. The latest  reports lead to the belief that the question is settled and that the Venezuelan  Government has ceded the territory  containing the mouth of the river to  Great Britain.  It does not appear .hat the United  States has any interests whatever in  the matter, except such visionary ones  as' may exist under the Monroe Doctrine, the nature of which is explained  in another column. There is no doubt  that a great deal of the trade of that  part of the world is condncted by  American firms, but there is no mention of any treaty or other arrangement giving the United States any say  whatever iu the disposal of Venezuelan  territory. That country appears to be  perfectly free and might, if she so  wished it, apparently, hand over her  entire dominions to the Sui/tax. of  Turkey or any one else.  In this laying out of the boundary betweeu Venezuela and the British pos-  . sessions, the: United States has been  very anxious to have the matter submitted to arbitration, with, no doubt,  some of its own citizens as arbitrators.  Great Britain has politely but firmly  declined these offers, alleging that the  matter lies between Venezuela and  herself and does not require the assistance of any one else whatsoever.  Even if resort was had in the matter  to arbitration it-would not appear that  citizens of the United States, pledged  as they are by their Monroe Doctrine,  would be as unbiassed as arbitrators  ought to be, nor do the scare heads and  fxparU statements of their newspapers  ' MANITOBA SCHOOLS. ,,  WTe doubt if any question has ever  risen in any British Colony of such  difficulty as the Manitoba School question. There isa habit ofgreatusefulness  among many men, of always allowing  one night to pass before replying to a  difficult letter. A night's rest quiets  and clears the brain and the subject  f requenj lyjvppeajs jiL_t^sx^LiLO_Ltj_u_e_  light next morning. Acting <on some  such idea the legislature of Manitoba  has adjourned for six weeks, until  Thursday, 0th May. During the recess  the puzzled legislators will probably  have the opportunity of consulting  with the greatest living authorities on  constitutional questions and will also  be able to read'many columns of print  on tl'e subject, from which it is possible some hint may be derived. In the  mean while it is cause'for thankfulness  that'we have - no such question to  divide and puzzle us here. ~ We wish  our Mauitoban brothers well out of it.  A collision occurred off the, coast of  Sicily the other day between the  British steamer Alvah'and the steamer  Brinkburn, which was carrying French  officers and ammunition to Madagascar. The European correspondent of  a New York paper endeavours to show  that. the collision was purposely designed by the British Government to  stop the French transport going to  Madagascar.

A national bi-metallic league has. beeu  formed in Paris, with ex-Premier Eoubet  as president. Among the vice-presidents  are M. Magnin, governor of the Bank  ��������� of France: M. de _"ormandie, president  of the Comptoir D'Escompte, and Deputy j  Meline. The main feature of the league's  programme is the plan to open direct relations with foreign bi-metallic leagues.  A federal judge at Buenos Ayres has  ordered the Salta government to deliver  Jabez Spencer Balfour, whose extradition  Great Britain has long beeu trying to obtain, to-the British legation in this city.  A telegram from Salta announces that  the court there will turn Balfour over  to the federal authorities at once. As  quickly thereafter as possible he will be  taken to London to answer to the charges  made against him in connection with the  collapse of the Liberator Building Society  and allied concerns, the failure of which  ruined thousands of persons who had invested their money in the different concerns.

Revelstoke, March 27.���������The third  scene in the drama, ''How to Fire an  Editor," was enacted in the police court  on Tuesday in the presence of Mr. A.  McArthur J. I'-, of Illicillcwaet, aud a  cowdcd house. The plot was au action  for libel brought by Mr. I"1. Fraser, J. P,  against ex-Editor Northey. The cause  of complaint was an article, attributed  to the unknown correspondent Diogenes,  iiml which appeared iii the spuriou- issue  of the paper. The plaintiff Hought *o  prove that Mr. It. W, Northey, the editor  of the Kooteuay Mail, and Diogenes,  could all be covered by the same hat.  The lime-light of evidence was notstroi.g  enough lo project the transparency, and  the case fell through. Thc evidence failed to prove who were the editor and proprietors, or if thero were any editor or  proprietors; what either tho editor or  proprietors had to do with Diogenes, and  further, what Diogenes, had to do with  the defeudaut. Mr. Spraggo, of Donald,  appealed for the plaintiff, and Mr. J3. 11.  Lee for the defendant.

MIXING  NOTES.  (From our exchanges.)  ' The first news of this season from the  Yukon river, gold fields has been received  at Port Townsend, upon the arrival of  T. C. Healy, a trader, who came out  overland from Dyea, and hence by steamer vAlki to hurry a shipment of supplies  to the mining camps, all provisions being exhausted except coffee. The last  sack of flour sold for $10. Over 1.000  miners are living ou less than half rations  and undergoing severe hardships, but it  is believed they can subsist on the present supplies until the steamer reaches  there in July, although many will be  incapacitated from labour next summer  on account of the winter's famine.  The reason supplies ran short was  owing to non-arrival of the steamer Artie,  ���������which was abandoned by Capt. Peterson  at Fort Yukon last autumn, and was unable to reach the mining settlements..  The Supreme Court of Germany has  cancelled the patent of the MacArthur-  Forrest-process in that country.  Comptroller of Canadian CustomB  Wallace has decided that electricity comes  under the head of unenumerated articles,  and consequently bears a duty of twenty  per cent. The question arose over a proposition to transmit power' from the  American side of Niagara falls to surrounding Canadian cities.���������Review.  The copper refinery in Anaconda,  Montana, by the electrolytic process, has  ceased to be an experiment. It is daily  turning out fifty tons refined copper.  In the acre of buildings are 600 vats. . In  these the copper anodes are placed, the  crude copper precipitated therefrom, the  electrolytic current (-.transferring it to a  thin sheet of copper, of which each anode  furnishes two in about twenty days' time.  It is the present intention to build a refinery at Great Falls three times the  size of the Anaconda plant, the water of  ... Black Eagle Falls to be utilized in furnishing the requisite electricity. ,,  ~Plans"foFTilie-Denver miniug-exliibit  are being elaborated. One of these is to  sink a shaft and reproduce sections of  the famous mines of the continent. The  workings in every particular are to be  shown. Work on the shaft will begin  long enough beforehand to get the" mine  ready to operate at the time the exposition begins. Two companies have  expressed theirwillingness to' provide all  ���������the necessary sinking and driving  machinery free of all cost for the advertising they would get.  Mackay's Trick.  Millionaire Mack-ay tells a story of a  contest he had with oho of his foremen.  The foreman was something of a naturalist and trained one of the enormous  grasshoppers of the west, as Mark Twain  trained his frog, until he could jump  about ten feet. -Then ho interested Mr.  Mackay in the insect. Mr. Mackay  ���������went out and caught some hoppers and  backed them against the record breaker,  with the result that'ho was beaten every timo. Then ho became determined  to win and sent several of the hands  out to hunt for tho strongest jumpers  they could find. But all to no purpose  until one day he discovered a wet spot  on the table near where the foreman's  hopper had sat. Investigating the matter, he found that the spot was very  strong ammonia, that the foreman hud  a vial of ammonia with a dropper in  his sleeve, und that a drop of tho ammonia made a grasshopper jump hard  enough to beat the record every time.  So Mr. Mackay provided himself with  a dropper and then went to another  battle. The same morning he managed  to get hold of the foreman's dropper,  emptied it and filled it with chloroform,  instead of ammonia, and theu kept the  foreman with him until the last minute.  The grasshoppers were brought forth,  and Mr. Mackay's flew through space,  while tho foreman's only heaved and  heaved, finally rolling over and going to  sleep. It was not until the third contest  that the foreman found out the trick.  IN    THE    SUPREME    COURT    OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  P. O. box GO.  Telephone  EDWARD APPLEWHAITE * CO.
