STRIKE RIOH ORE-  A lllK Body -truck   In the  Old Tunnel ol'  the Silver King Mine.  Friday morning the : newe - quickly  spreadthrough Nelson that a big strike  had been made in the Silver King miue.  It was nt lirst supposed tbat n large ore  body had been discovered in the long  tunnel which is beiug driven on the  lower levels. Inquiries at the mine, however, proved that such is not the case.  The development of the* old tuunel is  responsible for the discovery. It is said  that the ore lately uncovered is of considerable extent and of richer grade than  any heretofore found iu the miue. Tlie  management acknowledges that a strike  has been made but refuses to*' give any  further information.  CHARGED  WITH THEFT.  A  Sandon  Man Said  to Have Fled  Fearing Imprisonment.

He is also supposed to have mismanaged theCiift hotel  (o the extent-of a $3000 shortage which  cannot be accounted for aud which has  nearly ruined the proprietor of the house.  The charge was made* agaiust Danserean Inst week and he was placed under  8500 bonds pending further nvidence in  Ihe matter being obtained. Bruce White  the superintendent of the Slocau Star  mine became responsible for half Ihis  amouut and Danserean the balance. The  hearing of the case before the local magistrate was to have take- placela.tFriday  but' the defendant was not to be found.  It is proved that he bas since fled the  country and is supposed to have goue to  Vancouver or Seattle by way of Revelstoke.  The police authorities throughout the  Pacific north-west have been advised of  the case and are on tho lookout for Dan-  sereau. If caught, he will be brought  back to Sandon to stand trial.  The missing man had the reputation  here of speuding money very freely.

Special telegram to The Mi-Kit.  Kaslo, Feb. 0.���������Last evening a meeting ..was held in the offices of George  Alexander for the purpose of forming  a mine   owners association.     H.   E. [  Croasdaile was   chosen as   chairman'  and John Keen as secretary. i  The following committee was appointed to draft a constitution and  report at a. meeting to be held in the  same place next Saturday evening:  T.

The association will be composed of  tho Stanley House and asked Mrs. McDonald if Cowgill had given her any  whiskey. She denied it, but upon  searching, the witness found it under her  bed mattress. Miles then went to the  bath room and charged Cowgill with  taking the liquor lo her. Cowgill was  engaged in cleaning a lamp chimney and  called the constable a liar and other bad  mimes,'nt the same time striking at him  with the glass. Miles guarded the blow  and retaliated, and to use his owu words  "it was a regular fight and that was all  there was to it." They went down stairs  together after the fight and took a drink  and Miles thought " they were both perfectly satisfied." The witness said that  he only acted in self defense.  "Did you have your badge on atthe  time?" asked the court.  "I don't remember,"   was the reply.  "It was according to the vest I wore."  "It would have been better it you had  left it off to-day,"   remarked the court.  r Judge Forin theu went on to say that  he was surprised to know that a man  who had been an officer for eighteen  years, would so far forget the dignity of  his position to indulge in a fight.   ..He  ; might expect it from a man like Cowgill  f but not from an old officer like..the  defendant.

When hostilities had been suspended, Mr.' Cowgill's face 0 looked as  though it hail beon through a threshing  machine, and Miles in the bigness of his  heart took him to the bar, bought the  drinks aud they parted like old friends.  Later on Miles was surprised to receive  a summons to appear before Judge  Form and-to-an"_weF"_to  assault and battery.  When.the case was called Thursday  afternoon, the court room was crowded  with people. Cowgill in giving his' testimony said that on the morning in  question he was in the .Central saloon  purchasing a flask of whiskey for a lady  friend and at that iustant Constable  Miles passed through the place. The  witness left the bottle at the house of  liis friend and ��������� then proceeded to the  Stanley .house.- In the-courso of his  duties around the building he was cleaning some lamp glasses in the bath- room  and while there he was approached and  accosted by Coustable John Miles.

One word led to another until  Miles struck at liim and then thc men  became so busy that lhey took no note  of.,time. The witne.S3 was sure that  Miles was the agres-or. " In answer to a  question from the court as to what, became of the glass chimuoy: tlie witness  was holding when Miles approached him  Cowgill said:  "I don't know what t'll became of it."  "William Cowgill," sternly said "his  honor, " if you use such language in this  court you are liable to be put iu jail for  three months for contempt of court.*'  James McKeruou for the prosecution  testified that he had heard the noise  occasioned by the tight and when he  went upstfiirs.to the bathroom tp see  what it was about he met Cowgill coming  out. Cowgill's face was covered witli  blood aud the floor of the room had  blood smeared all over it. Mrs. McDonald's son testified to practically the same  thing and said tha1, he served* the com  batants with a drink. He alleged that  on the following morning his mother  said she would just as soon in iny a  rattlesnake as Constable Miles.  Quite a number of small properties  are being .worked here and a number  of capitalists have visited thc. camp  this winter looking after Ainsworth  property. Seven experts were here at  one time last'week. The prospects of  this camp never looked brighter than  at present.  E. ,D.

He believed that her son  was very antagonistic to such au arrangement, but as far as he knew Mrs. McDonald was favorable to it. The lady  was addicted to the use  stimulants and on several  had told Cowgill not to take liquor to  her as she could get all she wanted at  the bar. On the morning in question h >  went to the Central Hotel saloon and  saw Cowgill trying to hide a flask-about  his person.

Heinze, of tbe Columbia and  Western railway, is said to be perfecting  arrangements for tbe extension of his  road westward to the Okanogan country  as far as Penticton, a small town on  Okanogan lake.  The Mineb is in a position to say that  should this be done, a different route  than the direct extension from Rossland  westward will be chosen. The Trail-  Robson branch of tbe system will cross  tbe Columbia river at or near Rdb-on,  and after skirting the west shore of tbat  stream will run along the valley of Dog  areek, a small tributary of the Columbia  which has its source near the summit of  the Gold range. These lofty mountain-  form tbe divide between the valley of tbe  Columbia aud the Kettle river basin,  and will be crossed by the proposed  railway running through Burnt pass.  Descending into the Kettle river valley,  the line will take the shortest practical  route to Penticton where it will oonneot  with the Shushwap and Okanogan braneh  of the C.P.R. and either meet the proposed Vancouver, "Victoria and Eastern  railway,or follow the route of that line to  tidewater, should .the people of Viotoria  aud Vancouver fail in their enterprise.  It is an open secret that' Mr. Heinze  does not propose to confine bis railroad  building in British Columbia to tbe few  miles of line that he now has from .Trail  to Rossland'aud Robson. His present  great interests in Kootenay have proved  exceptionally profitable; he is undoubtedly makiugimore money every dayfrom  his smelter than any other individual in  this section of British Columbia. He bas  confessed to the full realization of the  wonderful resources and possibilities of  this district and continues to place his  profits in such varied interests that he is,  of necessity, here to stay.  ��������� His railway system is at the mercy of  the C.P.R. on one end and the American  railroads at the other. He worked like  a beaver to control tbe Crow's Ntst Pass  road'to the East Kootenay coal deposits  and failed. He is more of a'smelter man  than anything else and has given evidence that he will lead in that industry iu  Kootenay. The almost'.vital importance  to him of obtaining an economical -fuel  supply is undoubtedly the origin of the  Penticton extension, with the ultimate  aim of securing an independeot railroad  communication with the Vancouver island coal fields.  Mr. Heiuze is known to have lots of  financial backing and has able lieutenants who are at present busily engaged  in workiug out tangible schemes iu connection with what he has already accomplished.  ROSSLAND RUMORS.  Ke|iorlcd Sale or the  Ic   Itoi   Mine���������Pro  icrexs of lhe Oevelo|������ment or the Minex.  Specinl-to tlie-_Mr.vi._u.- ���������^ ������������������  Rossland, Feb., 6.���������Rumors of the sale  of the Le Roi mine to an English syndicate tor ii fabulous sums of money, are  current in Rossland and Spokane,' but  not many of them are likely to be accepted seriously by those possessed of  any common sense. The Le Koi is" a  magnificent property aud capable of pro'  ducing an enormous amount of gold, but  little credence can be placed in the report thet the Le Roi company has refused  an offer of '$5,000,000 on practically a  cash basis. There is, however, some reliable ground for the belief that a p:oni-  iuent Canadian parliamentarian .-is arranging for a sale ot the miue to a company  ofoLondou capitalists for 83,500,000, but"  ud information is obtainable as to" how  loug a lime will be given for the final  payment to be made. Pmmiiieut LeRoi  stockholders in Rossland and Spokaue  refuse to discuss the probability of a sale.  A definite knowledge of the situation  may be obtained-for the, public nest  week.  the lake being tbe great Carpenter^.creek  mines of the Slocan country. The chief  value in the Cariboo creek ore is in gold.  The prospects of tbe new camp are very  flattering.  Plans are prepared for tbe refinery  plant for tbe Trail smelter. The refinery  will be tbe only in Canada. It will cause  the employment of seventy-five to one  hundred more men by the smelting company. .      ,  talc on Oaaru Creek.  The Tennesse and Iowa claims on  Quartz Creek, one-half mile from the  line of the Nelson and Fort Sheppard  railway, have been sold to James Mc-  Creath of Nelson, for $8,000.. The  former owners were Peter Rene, F.  Belding, Charles Anderson, John T.  Price and E. M. Peters.  The piirch.iser will put six men to  workjmmediately developing the properties.

The ratification of the arbitration  treaty between England and the  United States will be a knock-out blow  to many of the jingoes at Washington.  It is rumored that D. C. Corbin,  through the medium* of a. Rossland  editor, has.offered $130,000 for the pur-,  chase of the Spokane "Chronicle."  The Miner is still waiting to hear  more from the Victoria "Colonist"  concerning the' discriminate taxation  of miners in Kootenav.  The prompt and generous response  of Canada to the appeal for assistance  and relief of the plague and famine  sufferers in ' India is a very pleasing  evidence of the existence of 11 strong  Imperial Federation sentiment.  CONCERNING. MR. KELLIE.  As the Miner anticipated last week,  Mr. J. M. Kellie litis' succeeded in finding an opportunity to publish his letter  addressed to the Miner, which deals  with the public receipt and expenditure  of West Kootenay. for the. last four  fiscal years. .By this act-he has.deliberately and directly offered an insult  to the intelligence of the people of the  district. If he persists in the attempt  to justify his lack of ability, gross neglect of. the people's interests and his  servile support of maladministration  by garbled statements and preposterous figures he must suffer the consequences. , As the subject matter of the  letter appeal., if possible, more stupid  and ridiculous in print than it did in  manuscript form, the Miner heartily  congratulates ^itself for the maintenance of. its respectability by refusing to  be responsible for itspublication. But,  after all, it is well for the country that  Mr. Kellie has given sufficient evidence  over his.own signature, of his utter  uselessness and the menace that he is  to good government .< as a. representative of this district in the legislature.  The most notable feature ofthe communication is the unvarnished remark  that West: Kootenay has incurred a  debt to the province of over $225,000  in the past four, years. - This startling  statement undoubtedly means that  the district has received by. public expenditure, $225iO00 more than . has  been paid into the provincial .treasury  in that time. ' The Miner is indebted  to Mr. J. Fred,Hume, the M.PP. for  this district, for -some .interesting  figures on the same subject. They  show expenditures made by the government on roads, streets, trails,  bridges, educational facilities and the  administration of justice in West  Kootenay for the fiscal years of 1892,  '93, '9. and .'95 as follows :���������  "���������FOB 1892.  Expenditure..- $ 52,819  Hevcmie    M,102  -fact that -at the next provincial election there will be fully 500 voters i'or  each district as . outlined above. The  Miner has no hesitancy in stating that  number will be doubled in the next  four years.  The "World" is so controlled by the  present administration that it cannot  be expected to advocate more than  the least possible representation for  Kootenay because, without increasing  tha number of members of parliament,  additional representatives for Kootenay means the sacrifice of the  "pocket boroughs" on Vancouver Island.  The Miner is not controlled by the  government und has the support of a  very large majority of tho people of  Kootenay. This plan is offered because it is just and good. It is hoped  and expected that it will be adopted at  the next session of the legislature.  l'UOF-SSIO.V--   O Alt OS.  R.   HARRISON,   BAItKISTKlt,'   NO-  lury Public, Slocan City. 451  M  u.  L.

Carsou, travelling passenger agent for  the same road, were in Nelson during tbe  week. Both geutlemen are of the opinion  that travel to Kootenay this year will be  very heavy. Mr. Brown declares that  his company is making preparations for  necessary accommodation of the public  and will improve the local service of the  road with an additional number of  coaches. Thiee mire engines, one for  yard purposes, will shortly be added to  the Columbia & Kootenay and the  Nakusp and Slccan branches.  General Supeiinteudent Abbott, of lhe  Pacific division, bus intimated that the  railroad compauy will inaugurate a daily  service in Kootenay ou April 1st, by  which time it is expected the new C, & K.  passenger boat on tbe Arrow lakes will  be ready for service. In addition to this  steamer auother - fast boat will be  built for service on the Columbia and  laiiDObed ns speedily ns possible, while  several extra large barges for the transport of coke and general merchandise  will be in use on the Columbia river and  Slocan-lake as soon as possible. Mr.  Abbott is also responsible for the statement lhat it is the company's intention  to keep iu line with the development of  the Kootenay country,especially between  the mines and the coast cities. *  1,583'  Kxcess of revenue over expenditure.  fok 1KB.  Expenditure $ 4fi,333  Revenue    77,031  By this time, probably, the provincial cabinet ministers have carefully  arranged the bouquets-which they will  undoubtedly, throw at themselves during the coming session of the legislature.  In a recent speech at Victoria, Premier Turner is reported as saying that  the provincial government, at the  next session of the legislature, will be  asked to guarantee over $40,000,000 of  4 per cent, railway Ixmds. ���������������  .The Seattle   "PostTlntelligencer". is.  of the opinion that the proposed legislation, by British Columbia, to place  certain restrictions on- foreign investors in mines of this province will  excite no resentment among those in  the state of Washington who0 have  the welfare of their country at heart.  If the leaders of the ministerial  party are to any extent responsible  for sending Mr. J. 31*. Kellie on his  anything but triumphal tour through  AVest Kootenay with the intention of  feeling the public pulse as to his fitness  and acceptability, to hold office, they  may now rest assured that a very  large majority" do not desire his services as a member of the Legislature  or as.-. Gold Commissioner or .in any  oilier public capacity.  The comment of this journal concerning the ' discriminate taxation of  precious metal   miners has opened a  - new vein of wrangle for the Vancouver and Victoria papers. The Victoria. "Colonist," the first of the  truckling government organ's to wildly  and unavailingly hit back at the  Miner is, as usual, begging the question.    The  "Colonist" should obtain  . and publish a speciaLinterview oh the  subject from Mr. G. A. Kirk, Premier  . Turner's business partner.  Kxcess of revenue over expenditure   30.C98  kor ISM.

"For the present fiscal  year only $32,000 was appropriated;  not one half of it has been spent according to .Mr. Kellie's statements to  the Minkb in an interview published  by this paper last week. . We may  safely estimate that the revenue of  the district for the fiscal year of 1890-7  is  fully   $100,000.  . Upon -this   basis  the province has received to date from  the district over $70,000 more than it  has expended in the sarhe period.

The United States Semite has passed  the international .Monetary Conference bill by the decisive vote of 40 to -1#  Thecauseoflii-raetallisin is beginning  to receive much more encouragement  from -European statesmen of prominence, and the friends of silver may  experience considerable gratification  from the signs of the times. The confession, of some of the silver senators  who voted for the bill, that the result  of the  proposed conference would be  - futile, is counterbalanced by the significant utterance of Senator Hoar of  Massachusetts who, during the debate  . on the bill, declared that "bi-metallism  is coining and coming to stay.". This  ia an important admission   from   so  THE MINER PLAN:  The Vancouver "World" claims that  its.suggestions for increased representation of "West Kootenay in the.Legislative Assembly have been received  throughout the district with the  warmest approval. 0  On behalf of the voters of the south  riding, the '-_MiNi.it emphatically declares that such- a redistribution of  .seats, as tlie "World" proposes, Would  be very unfair and (piite inadequate.  The only suggestion on this matter  that is really and generally accepted  is the MiNKit Plan, which had" its  origin in these columns and which has  since been endorsed by the Rossland  "IDaily ��������� Record" and other leading  journals of the district. By the adoption of this plan, there would be five  electoral districts* with one member  each:  1. Nelson electoral district, to include what are now known as the Nelson and Goat River mining divisions.  2. Rossland electoral district, to  include the towns of Rossland and  Trail and what is known as-the Trail  Creek mining division.  3. Kaslo electoral district, to include  the city of Kaslo, the towns of Ainsworth and Pilot Bay and what is  known as the Ainsworth mining  division.  4. Tlie. Slocan electoral district, to  include what is known as the Slocan  mining division.  5. The Revelstoke electoral district,  to include what .ire known as the Rev  elstoke, Illicilliwaet. and Trout Dike  mining divisions. ������ ���������  By this arrangement, the compactness of each district.is established; a  classification is made of localities that  have identical -interests and an equitable division of population is carefully,  maintained.

CORRESPONDENCE.  To the Editor of The Mineu:  Sib:���������Mr. J; M. Kellie appeared ou the  political horizon of West Kootenay aud  treated the public to a small" display o-  political (ire crackers in his owi> peculia  "let her flicker" style. He seems to forget tliat since the days when one solitary  iudiffereut elector first placed-bim in the  position of the miners' representative, tbat  a "pay steak" has been struck aud di-  veloped iu Kooteuay, and prior to thai  time tlie country had been woi king on ;���������  "grub stake" left over from the earl.-  Cariboo days. Mr. Kellie has evident 1>  started out ou some mission of jiistifica-  "tio.i by faith iu the present government,  and flounders around ia a-regular "pot  hole" of figures to prove West l_oot_un>  is the prodigal district- that has wasted  the substance of the whole province for  mauy years, while he, "like the govern-  went, loses sight of the fact that to Koo'-  enay alone belongs the credit of the  present prosperity  aud probable  Futuie  "weal tlf of "the" province." "** *  Had Mr. Kellie and other membeis  watched more closely aud gunrded  agaiust. pernicious legislation injnr.ug  the mining interests, aud makiug less ex  coses for their own and the government'.-  mistakes and ignorance, we would not  have . __many conflicting clauses in the  Mineral Act, nor would the whole of th.  Kin-face and timber lands of East and  West  Kooteuay  be tied  up en bloc to  - raihvay companies, placiug the miner iu  the position to pay two royalties for hi.1-  limber,   and   probably   fighting  in  the  "future for some ot his necessary surface-  rights.  Had the government shown as much  interest to fill the public-purses as they  have to pee-that railway promoters gel  ' tbe last nickle, they would have collected  two dollars and a half per acre for third  class lauds, wheu they held them, instead  of oue dollar per acre. - But having mad<  themselves collectors for. the railway  companies, lhey show an amazing  amount of cautiou, in seeing that the ut  most farthing goes with these blanket  land grants.   -  Mr. Kellie might rise and explain why  the government, after declaring iu the  House, ''that all lands under reservation  and not finally selected, were to be open  for purchase and pre-emption  under the  - land act," so good natu-edly allowed" the  word "agricultural" to be iu.etted, thu.  giving Mr. Heiuzie's compauy the power  to collect not less than two dollars and a  half per acre for thiid-class land, when  the government only collects oue dollar  per acre. Of course they did not know  that, for every acre of the first class there  are five acres of third class on every  block of land iu Kootenay. They require  a decl_.nt.on as to its being either first  or second class���������which means a declaration has to be made that the whole land  applied for is not what it seems.

The committee was iu sessiou  for three hours and agreed by an almost  unanimous vote to recommend the ratification treaty with amendments. All but  two of these amendments are merely  verbal.  One of the two which are esseutial  strikes out the clause providing for the  selection of King Oscar as umpire,  leaving it to the two powers to select an  umpire wheu one is considered necessary.  The otlier important amendment is au  addition to article one of tieaty as follows:  "No question which affects the foreign  or domestic policy of either of the contracting parlie_ or lhe relations of either  with any other stato or power, a treaty  or otherwise, shall be subject to arbitration under this treaty except by special  agreement."

By the decisive vote of .6 to 4 the U.S.  senate has passed a bill for the-appointment of commissioners to an international monetary conference. During the  debate Senator Hoar gave the results of  liis observations in Europe last summer,  ���������showing th<>, tendency toward bi-metallism  He had talked with M. Bourgereau,  author of the bimetallic r 'solution in the  French assembly, which secured the  written indorsement ot 8G7 out of _00  members. M. Meline, tlie French premier, had declared that wheu othei  nations wanted bi metnlliam France  would uot be loug behind. In London  he had an agreeable -talk with Mr. Balfour whose championship of bi-metallism,  had been maintained-against the views  of Mr. Gladstone and Sir William "Ver  non Harcourt. The' senator said he had  refrained from repealing the views stated  by Mr. Balfour, although at a diuner  party in Loudon a number of eminent  men had assured him that the views of  Mr. Balfour were shared by a large part,  if not a majority, of the English people.  Hoar read a letter .from _Ge_rm.au j_s tat ing.  that great-'progress was beiug made  toward bi-metallism? Thus these four  great nations���������the United States,-Great  Britain, France, Germany���������were steadilj  adv-ucing to bi-metallism. It was coming, and coming to stay. Hoar denied  that Ihe East was assailing the West",  declaring tbat the East recognized that  the power of the nation, like the star of  enipirp, was slowly moving westward.

A telegram from Ottawa says: The  latest proposition made to the DomiDiou  gov-romont to commemorate tho sixtieth  vear of Her Majesty's reign is'the creation of a new province iu the west, to be  known as the province of Victoria.  There is an uuderstandiug with Green  way that Manitoba is to be enlarged  and this involves a considerable change  in the map of the West to which Sifton  is favorable. The proposal is to attach  part of Assiuiboia and Sackatchewau.  east of the 105th degree ot longitude, to  Manitoba, together with the district of  Keewatin, Alberta, with Athabasca aud  the remainder of Saskatchewan and  Assiuib-in will theu be given provincial  autonomy as the province of Victoria.  This scheme is said to fit in with plans  which members of the Cabiuet euterta'n  for the government of the West.  A papal delegate will probably be  appointed to Canada.  The Supreme Court will open its sittings on February 16, to hear election  appeals.  The Ottawa Electric Stieet Kailwav  Company last year carried more than one  million aud a half passengers.

"Ughl What 11 ni'^ht!" wait iny invol-'  nntnry exclamation, as I came on deck just  before eight bells (twelve o'clock) on that  iiiuht in March. '80, which fate had ordained I should never forget. I had heard  the cry of "All hands on deck!" bellowed  down the fo'eastle, the scurry of feet, the  hoarse command. "All hands aloft to  shorten sail! Quick, lads, for your liveB!''  and had bounced out of my berth, jerkod  ii.'to my clothes and tumbled up the companion way to the slippery deck.  AVhat was I doing uboard the ship?  Well, by profession I am a doctor arid by  occupation a rambler.    Not that   it   is   a  Eavt of 11:7 business as a doctor to ramble;  ut.: you know, a doctor's mission ia to try  to restore nature's jewel, health, and I,  being a doctor, was Endeavoring to do my  duty to myself and find that which I had  studied hard to be able fo restore to others.  So there I was standing, or, rather, trying  to, (for the northeast gale nearly blew me  off my feet), on the quarter-deck of the  little brig Jenny Liud, bouiid from Liverpool tb Quebec. Horatio, wasn't it cold!  Arid the sharp sleet, driven hard before  the gale, seemed like a sand-blast cutting  the gravestones for the poor chaps who  were tb be that night laid for their last-rest,  ''rocked iri the cradle of the deep."  Well may the poetic dreamers sing the  praises of "Snow, snow, beautiful snow."  They view it from the inside of a warin,  cheerv room, reclining in an easy-chair,  pipe in mouth, watching-the little feathery  tlakoB peeping bIvIv in through the glass  and then driven roughly away by their  master, Wind, for daring such impertinence. Ay, it is beautiful snow, then!  But change the scene. A night, aa black  as coal and almost as dense, for the eye  can hardly see a rod away, the wind tearing, booming, howling through the taut  rigging; the sleet driving, cutting, grinding the flesh exposed to it, and the little  brig of only one hundred and fifty tons  lurching, groaning, bouncing here and  there in the mad, tierce grasp of the sea:  Lord, what yells! I start, shiver'and find  it is only that devil, Wind, laughing as it  slaps old Neptune in the face, lashing  him to still more fury. I am almost frozen,  for theavy spray which flies over ns as the  brave craft holds its own, freezes as fast  as it strikes, coating us witli a thick crust.  "This is a fearful nig'tit," I say to the  man at the wheel, arid his answer of '.'Aye,  aye, sir," comes through teeth set as a  vise. With feet planted, or rather, rooted  to the deck, body bent forward, eye's trying hard to make out tlie canvas he cannot  see, he moves only as tlio orders shouted  through thu trumpet come faintlv to him:  "Hard a starboard!" "Steady!" "Ease her  a little!" straining hard at the wheel to  put it "port" or starboard" as is ordered;  and between his white lips growling back  liis "Aye, aye, sir!" By the fitful flicker  of the binnacle lamp I see his face arid  know him to be Jim Peters, tho hardest  man in the crew. Nobody lfked liim ,or  would have anything to do with him. He  wa. riot a prepossessing object"to look lit.  His face had as much sociability and kindness iri it.es a tombstone:" Heavy, s<������iiaro  jaw, large month, t-yes black, or rather,  one eye, for a large, red scarjrijriiiing  across his forehead and dowu his loftclieek  back, of his ear took that eye along with it;  a shaggy head of sandy hair and unkempt  beard did their part in his make-up of  ugliriess.' I said nobody would have anything to do with' him. I'll take that back,  for there was oiio aboai'd who pitied iind  -tried' to:-b.-_riendly-to'��������� him.��������� He -was-the-  ship's _by, a nice, likely lad. good looking"  and'amart and a sailor, every inch of him.  There was one thing about Jim, however,  oWhich none could get back of, and .that  was he was strong us an ox arid as good n  sailor as ever' trod" a deck. Ho" was the  only man aboard, who could have hold the  wheel alone in such' a night. On we" drive,  a reel and then a plunge, and"' the little  brig comes out of the' trough of the' sea  and shakes herself and theu leaps onward.  What's that cry for'dV    Jim-starts, and  I see his face pale, as with  all his   mighty  . strength he puts the wheel to port. . .  " Hard,.Jim. hard d6wn!" comes if faint  voice, and tlio captain comes running aft.  You did well, Jim,'but your three times to  port were too late to saVe her, for with a  sickening, ghastly crush she strikes and  commences to settle rjpidly. A rough  hand grabs my arm and a deep voicu  growls:  "It's tho ice, doctor; jump for-it���������  jump for it."  Before I can do so, I am taken off my  feet; and the next moment I fuel' mysefr*  going through the'air; then a sudden stop. !  mid I find myself on a field of drift ice. I s  turn to thank my deliverer.' and'find it was ;  Jim whose clear head and strong arm had j  saved ine. I try to thank hiin, but he j  says, shortly : ���������'I'd a'done it by the ship's 1  dosr, doctor, a.s soon as.ye, had lie been as I  handy." ' .Nevertheless I shake hands, unii  say a few words to him, a* he turns on liis |  heels and joins his mates straining tlieir. |  eyes to pierce the blackness- and see tiie lit- i  tie craft's last" plunge. Like a bird' whoso j  l^winas flutter and then diop. her canvas j  shakes and she dives, never to come 11 p.-1  The crow sadly bid her farewell aud even !  grouty Jim says: "Good-bye. little 'un." '  You folks ashore cannot realize tiie fear j  that came over us as thu waters closed over j  the - little craft that had been to'us our i  home, our. "all in all. "A feeling of dread- j  ful loneliness thrilled 'us as through the !  inky darkness we tiied to read the expres- j  sion in our coinp:mious' laces. '���������  I mentioned it was cold, but words are j  inadequate to properly convey the icy in- '  tensity, now that the blood whieh had  been quickened by .the strain and excite-'.  meut had become normal. Added-to. the \  bitter cold was the chill of fear. We drew !  close together to diagnosticate our ca_e. ;  _N*ntu rally, we looked to the captain for !  advice, and when asked what we should ;  do, lie said tersely:  "Stick here till morning. Then we can ',  get our bearings, and shape cur course ac- i  cordiugly." \  Now. when the brig struck, we had had-1  a close tall, stud  so had a  chance to save -  uotbint. but what we  stood in.    Tbe tap- !  tain'_ advice-was excellent as far as it went; :  but  to  s,;ay' where   we  ���������.ve_l_, huddled together   like   so   many   frightened sheep,  meant certain death,   and  the dawn, as  it  broke, would fall unheeded ca fifteen frozen  corpses that,; _ lew _om_ _ef_Te, had been  the crew of the little, gallant Jenny Lind.  Jim now came to the front, and, in hi__  rough, '__-ly way, said "ai how I've made  an observation of these here parts, and I  calculate there is-room, enough to move  round in, provide^ you fellers have brains  enough to do 'it'.' AVe accordingly, teted  on his suggestion, and, with Jim at our  head as pilot. We commenced fo walk  around iii a circle, thrashing bur haiuia  and endeavoring to force tiie blood, to  greater activity" through our stiffening  bodies. Almost from the minute we  landed on the ice. Jim had had an eye  always on Walter, the .hip's boy, and now,  as we commenced onr dreary rounds,, he  hud him close b.hi__. Oh, how cold and  desolate it was, going round aud round iri  that contractedsp*m������. ntoving like a chain  gang," with one, hand ou the shoulder ot  the man in front, ab as not to lose one  another; for small as that space was, the  night was black and the edge of. the floe  was we knew riot how hear.. One by one';  the men grew .weary, and Jim���������almost  overlooked aboard ship, our leader iiu*-^  slackened bis pace, to ease up a little.-   ,  Walter was the first one to "give out. We  heard him diop, the line stopped', and Wje  closed,around him. .Jim.got down on hia  knees beside him and spoke, uot so gruffly  as usual: ,  ".Ye ain't tuckered out yet, are ye, lad?"  Half drowsily and wearily came the answer:   ���������  " I'm dead beat, Jim, and sleepy.   Don't  mind me ; let me sleep, and  I'll- catch ou  the line again, aoon."  We heard Jim mutter to himself : '  "He'll freeze, lying her.,'' and t-snj.  l-ovenient 611 hi. part, anil he said';,:  "Here, Walter, lad", here's my,pea-jacket';  I'll wrap .this arid my comiort'er round  ye, and ye'll-feel more comfortable like;"  He was putting them on to ttie alieai|y  sound asleep boy, when I laid my JiaiVd bju  l'us shoulder and told hiin he'd tree., to .  death without any protection; He fo.e  quickly, and iii a savage Ibne; said :  "What1, that io ye; doctor? Y_pr rieyer  took any notice of hie aboard' ship, and  a-getting mighty tender q'.ihe iioW,"  T spoke to hiin again, telling hiiii betweeu  ua we could keep Walter moving round",  aud thus keep lain alive; 4*>d that he himself needed soma protection. Hia mates  joined ine in my entreaty and' tried to raise  Walter to liis feet; hut he. shook their  hands ok and, facing us. spoke ;  "Mr..Doctor,and. niatas; I ain't nobody,  and it don't make uo difference whether' I  die or not... All nr .< e have mothers or  sweethearts wilitln" .������.:��������� ye,to come home.  I ain't not nobody; no home. A vagabond; mate*; I. be; with nothing, but the  ship whose articles I sign for a home, aiid  the sea'll be my .grave sooner or later; ifo  ye. see, it don't mukeiio difference whether  I freeze to death here or go to the bottom  across the line. Walter's got a mother,  lads, as is waitin' ter see him soon; and .if  Jim can help her do it, 'he's agoirig tor.  I thank ye all, mat:* and Mr.   Doctor,   fer ;  speaking ter me; aiid if  ugly .Jim -freezes  ter death, don't think too hard of hiin."  Again ttie line;moves on, hut the men  are getting disheartened and overcome,  and gradually, on. by one,, they. lie down  on the ice, and, crawling close together,.' a  sleep, sweet but deadly, holds thein in i,ts  grasp. Jim and I are the only ones left  now, and we walk; walk, walk round aiid  round the prostrate forms like a death-  watch.  "It's no use,-Jim; I've got to join the  circle." ' '  And I step toward it. He stop's ine ami  says:  "Can't ye'Stick it out. doctor?" .'  "No,"I say; despondently; "I um too  weak and numb to keep it up. Here, Jim.  give me your hand."  "Good-bye; doctor," he says, arid moves  on again; a lonely sentinel; lighting don't ii  inch by inch, and by his pluck and (logged  determination shaking off its icy clutch.* "  .

BY TOM HAL-.  Bess had been put to a great deal of  trouble this day. Thero was always plenty  to do at Freshwater Ranch, and she had to '  do it all, for old man Uarnaby had uoased  to bh of any particular use in this world  long before Geronimo had become the war  chief of the Chiricahua Apaches. Bess,  his daughter, ran the ranch,' milked the  cows, cooked the food, did the washing,  attended to tbe modest little garden that  she hail managed to coax from the arid Ari-  , zona soil, and even gave the two cayuse  ponies that belonged to her father all" the  grooming they ever got. Besides that,- she  hufi to attend to the selling of water from  the artesian well that was the only excuse  Jor Freshwater Ranch's existence. ���������  There was not so very much travel on  the road that ran by Mt. Graham down to  the dusty Gila Valley, but there were forty  miles at a stretch of it, and Freshwater  Ranch had tho only water that was to be  found upon it. And so, when the freight-  teams and the army ambulances made the  trip Irom Fort Grant to Fort Thomas, the  teamsters were very glad to pay tveity-  five cents a bucketful for water aud double  rates for forage. And that is how Bess  made a living, a wretched, lonely, almost  outcast living, for her father and herself.  But there was plenty to do this day  and plenty of excitement. For thu first  tiraa in all her memory,' a whole troop of'  handsome cavalry-men. with a bright-  cheeked and still handsomer young lieutenant at its head, had come to Freshwater  Ranch to actually camp over night and  perhaps stay even longer. A bunch of  White River Apaches, ' getting over the  effects of a tiswiu drunk, had jumped the  reservation,- and started on a murdering  and thieving raid after their usual manner. Quite after- their usual manner,  also, two troops of cavalry had started in  pursuit, following their trail with the faint  hope of catohing up with the fleet-footed  Apaches; while the remainder of two regiments of cavalry and twice ns many of  infantry had been put at patrol duty "and  at the guarding of water-holes, springs and  mountain passes.  It is the ynnn r* lieutenant that is sent ou  this patrol i ty .������������������ a rule. The more ex-.'  perienccd ofu.. .��������� > are sont in pursuit. And  it is a hard grind, indeed, on the nerves of  the impatient young lieutenant to sit for  days in his camp watching the surrounding  country through his field glass arid receiving the reports of his scouts, always the  same monotonous:' "Didn't see uo signs of  'em, sir."  And so the poor "pl.ebe "��������� lieutenant  gnashes his teeth and swears at- his luck,  and looks through his field glasses until he  can see all sorts of things with his tired  eyes���������except Indians. But woe to him if  Mr. Crazy Bear, with his family and relation.! aud intimate friends, happens to slip  through his lines-during the night and the  trail is not discovered promptly tho next  day. -Woo to him'if-it is the grinning captain of the pursuing troop that tantalizing-  ly informs him while he is still rubbing  his sleepy eyes, that not only Crazy Bear  but he with his whole troop of tired cavalry has beeu able to steal upon him and  past him.  On the other hand, though, what glory,  ' if; by a rare piece Of good luck, one of his  men dashes breathlessly in while the dew.  is still heavy on the lean bunch-grass of  the mountain with the exciting report-that  he has ent the raider's trail and that it is  but an hour two old I "Then it is "Boots  aud Baddies I" and mount and away, and  ten to one the "pl.be" lieutenant is able  to cut in ahead of the troops' that are pur-  ~anirijjn������'ndrwitlrhi8~fr_"_li'_ho"rse'B~aiia"_liiB'  wild anxiety to "get there," able to catch  up with Mr. Crazy Bear aud capture him  - and all his retinue, after a nice little skirmish,' in which he gets a hole through his  ., hat, we hope, aud not his heart.  Such was the precise situation of young  Mr. Barstow, second lieutenant of the���������the  Regiment,of United States Cavalry, on this  day when Bess was at her wits' end with  work and excitement. Clulcauno and hi.  band.had jumped the reservation-, at San  Carlos after ** murdering, a ' freighter .and  stealing his horses, and all southern Ari-  _ zona was in a, state of excitement. To be  ordered out to guard a watering station is  had enough; but .when you are quite per  sunded that the miscroants have gone in  another direction and that you have no  chance "whatever- of being in or near at  the death, the situation is almost unbearable.  Bess caught but a few glimpsos of "the  . lieutenant as he occasionally passed thc  door, but she saw that he was young and  handsome, and her woman's heart was .in  a flutter. It was all she could do to think  op something unusually good to eat for  supper. She got out her .very brightest  and newest calico dress arid braided her  unruly hair for the first time, in months.  She did not even scold the sly trooper,  whom she caught stealing some milk, for  fear the young lieutenant would. come  ' around to that side of tho house���������which  would be dreadfully embarrassing. Aud  yet she wanted to see   the   lieutenant and  - hear him talk���������oii, so much! She had  read in novels some, mysterious things  about how young people fell iu love with  each other and married���������and���������well, everything is possible in this world.  It was at supper time that they really  met. The lieutenant made a .polite bow.  He was a little . bit surprised. He had  heard some of the other officers of the garrison say laughingly that- the only  pretty  - woman in Arizona was Barnaby's Bess, excepting always, from regimental courtesy,  the ladies of the  regiment.    But he   had  forgotten all about it iu the  excitement of  his jurat trip in the  field.    It   occurred to  him now, but she was prettier than he had  imagined she could be.   His ideas of beauty-  were framed in  a  West   Point landscape,  and his divinites had been dressed in costly stuffs and  wore  diamonds,   and  were  buds from mature New York family trees.  But ho had not seen a  pretty  woman  in  several months, and he was just a little bit  embarrassed, himself.    He hardly noticed  the calico.    He waa quite charmed   by the  white apron.    He concluded at once  that,  perhaps, this first scout of his would not  be so awfully, dull after alL    He would  flirt a little���������only in  fun,   of  course.   ' It  would be rather a relief from the dullness  of the post.    So  he ate in   silence,   and  stared   so bard at  Bess  that  her cheeks  flushed  a deeper crimson than they bad  ever known  before.    And  to her ama_u-  ineat and  delight he Insisted an calling  f  ���������'��������� .. . '..j  ������������������      W. m yprm^gm*  her Miss Barnaby. In her day-dreams  she had often imagined some handsome  young man addressing her respectfully as  Miss Barnaby. Here was the delightful  reality.  -After supper the young lieutenant insisted on helping her to wash the dishes,  lie .laid it would bo great fun, and quite a  relief from the rough life of a soldier.  Poor youngster, he had become so used to  war's alarms. In fact they had become  quite a bore. Aud it seemed to Bess that  he stood awfully closo to her. Once or  twicu tlieir hands touched���������an accident,  she w..s quite sure. And, then, when all  her work was finished, tho dishes cleaned,  llie cows and horses fed (iu all of which  duties tho young lieutenant helped)���������delight of delights!���������ho actually asked her to  tako u littlo walk with hiin.  -As for him, it^eonied like old days in  camp at West Point. She was a girl, and  she was pretty. They strolled up^the  road a little distance ami then branched off  on a winding trail that led down to a little  va'ley that was flooded with the rich moon  light that broke through the clear Arizona  atmosphere. There was au interesting  nail at the foot, and when they reached it,  Buss gave a little start, and the lieutenant,  with ali his old West Point promptness,  took advantage of the opportunity to placo  his arm around her waist.  "Don't be afraid," lie whispered very  manfully.  "Oh, I am not," she answered, demurely.  And then slie stooped down quickly and  seemed to pick something up from the  trail.  "Did you drop anything?" he asked  with mock politeness. "Why didn't you  tell mo? It was-my duty to pick it up, you  know."  "1 did not drop anything," she answered.     "Let's sit dowu on this rock."  They sat down on the rook, and the  young lieuteuant, with his heart beating  vgry fast, put his arm around her waist  aguin and took hold of her hands and  found himself unconsciously looking for  rings, in the manner young men who wish  to hold a young lady's hand and feel in  duty bound to offer some slight excuse to  the* fair one. They did not talk very'  much. There was not much to talk about.  Their mutual friendb were few; and therefore there could be no gossip. The theatre, bookB, styles���������about everything was  barred, from necessity. Nevertheless, cit  was not long before the lieutenant's brown  mustache drew gradually near to Bess'  pretty lips, and, not long after that, Bess  received the first kiss she. ever' had from a  young man. She did uot struggle.1 She  was. utterly unaware of the arts of her fair  sisters iu the East. But she did turn  squarely around und look the 'lieutenant  very earnestly in the face.  " Do you mean anything by thatr" ahe  asked him. *'*  -'He waa surprised at the question, and  he was gentleman enough to perceive" that  what'was a mere evening's diversion to  him might be something infinitely more  serious to a lonely girl on almost a Western desert. He took his hand from her  waist and moved away a little,  - "No," he answered frankly, "only that  you are pretty���������and I didn't think you'd  mind."  "I didn't mind," answered Bess, "and  I wouldn't mind if I thought you cared for  inc. In fact," she added, with alarming  candor, "I would, like it if I were sure  you were not making fun of me."  The lieuteuant was silent.  "Tell me," she said, clasping his hand  excitedly, "If I should do something that  would bo a great benefit to you���������would  you think more of me���������would you love  met"  "No," he answered quickly, standing  up and looking at her a little curiously.  " You are too serious. I waut to be fair.  The fact is, I am engaged���������to a young lady  in New York. We are going to be married  in a year, or two, when I get more pay.  And perhaps sooner. If I could only do  something -to .��������� distinguish - myself, you  know."   -  She was clutching the rough edges of  the rock:  "Is she beautiful? " she asked.  " I think so," ho answered.    " See hero  is a picture of her.    You can see what she  looks like in the "moonlight."  ���������She-looked���������at���������tho���������photograph-a-long-  time.  ".Does she always dress like that ?" she  asked.  "No," he answered laughingly. "That  is a ball dress���������an evening dress. It would  hardly do for her to go out doors in a dress  like that. She might catch cold. But she  ja just as pretty - in other dresses; and I  Jove hor very much."  Bess handed back the photograph and  looked for a long timo at the'yellow trail.  She had id bite her lip . to repress a sigh,  but sho had been too long alone und  friendless to lose her self-control.  "Look here," she suddenly asked, "if  you were to catch these Indians, would  that be what you wanted to do to bo able  lo get your" promotion and marry her?"  "I should say it would," ho answered  bitterly.    "But that isn't my luck-"  "It is!' It is!" she cried," falling upon  lief knees by tbe trail. " See,- I give "her  tp you. See there���������aud there���������and there I  Those are pony tracks! See here I" She  held up to hiin the thing she had picked  up when ho was. mockingly polite. "It  is tho lash to an Indian quirt���������worn  through. They are riding hard and their  horses are tired. They were in a hurry to  got by-here without being discovered by  you, or they would have stopped to pick  it up. Run, ruu, I tell you! I can' read  the trail. better than you or any of your  men. You can catch them' before" morning!" Runt"  He had started before she had finished,  arid was bounding up the trail with long,,  athletic strides, leaving her,, alone on her  knees at the intersection" of the trails.  , She was still thero when the troop rode  silently, by with the anxious but silent"  young lieutenant at its head. He bowed to  her as he passed, hut she did not see him.  After the last pack-mule had passed out ot  sight down the valley, she rose and walked  slowly up the mountain. -  ������������������ "I was very foolish," she said. "He  has known her a long time, and he never  saw me before. Besides, she wears silk  dresses all the time and is rich. But that  should not make any difference in love.  He kissed me! Why should he kis3 me if  he did not care for me I It is queer. She  ib a great lady, and I���������"  She burst into tears and cried for a long  time as she sat on the yellow trail at tbe  top of the hill. It was far into the night  wheu she arose to go. She heard, far off  in the distance, through the clear air, the  faint popping of carbines and rifles.  . " I have given her to him," she muttered, as she made her way uncertainly to the  ranch. "She is u lady, and wears silk;  and she will never know about me, for ho  will be ashamed to tell her; and���������and I  am going to ask Father Jose, when he  comes here next year with his little Mexican donkeys and his candles and his white  rob������s, why it is that God has nevar sent  unyotie to love mi."

A MIIXlS*S~G_RL.  How it rained, tbat bleak winter nighti  How mercilessly the torrents came down,  rebounding in sheets of spray from the  pavements and swelling tho guttors into  miniature rivers! Through the whitening  mist, the shop-windows flared dimly and  the yellow stars of the' street-lamps shone  like beacon lights far out at sea. There  were not mauy pedestrians on Broadway  that night, save those compelled by grim  necessity to face the storm; and Guy  Moreau, striding down the western side,  had the right of way all to himself.  "There's no hurry, no hurry in the  world," said Mr. Moreau, calmly to himself. "My hat is ruined already, and my  coat is fit for nothing but the outside pegs  of a second-hand-clothing store. Consequently��������� Hello, here, what's the matter?"  He stopped short at the sound of a.slight  scream, close.to him. .A shabbily dressed,  young girl carrying a load of oil-cloth-  shielded bandboxes had slipped on a piece  of banana-rind, almost at his feet.  Guy Moreau made no "pretensions to the  rank of a Chevalier Bayard, but he had a  kindly human heart within his bosom, and  stepped instantly forward to help the  young girl, tip.  "Not hurt, are you?" he asked, kindly.  The girl looked at him with big eyes full  of pain and terror.  ...  "My bandboxes?" faltered she, glancing  eagerly around. '' They're ' not wet, are  they?"  '' No���������but you are. Look at your shawl,  poor.thing.  "Oh, that's no matter," said ahe.     ''It  was very awkward of hie to slip so, and���������"  "What's   the  matter,   now?"   Moreau  asked.  - For she had stopped short in the attempt  to move forward again.  "I'mafraid iny ankle is sprained!" she  wailed.    "Oh, dear, what shall I do?"  "Sprained, is it? (Confound those people who eat bananas and fling tho rind on  the pavement!" inwardly muttered Guy.)  "Let me call a hack," he added aloud.  "Oh, no, sir!" shrinking back. "I  couldn't affo������d a hack. - I'm only a milliner's apprentice, and all these hats must be  delivered before nine o'clock to night."  Guy looked reflectively down at the  band boxes, then at tho pale, pretty face,  with its dark, Spanish eyes and lushes  sprinkled with rain. ���������  "I'm afraid you'll hardly manage it,"  said ho.  "But I must!" said tho  girl,   positively.  "Can't you take 'em back to the  shop?"  "It's closed for the night,   and madamc'i  would never forgive mo for not  delivering;  the hats.    I���������I think  I  could  walk  very'  slowly." .-  But as she made the effort her cheeks  blanched once more with pain and a low  cry involuntarily escaped from lier lips.  "No," said she, "I can't walk. Oh,  what ahull 1 do?"  Guy knit his brows and considered a  moment.  1 'How far from here do you live?" _ he  asked.'  ' 'On Bleecker Street���������only a -little wav  ���������but the hats!"  "Don't fret about the hats," said Moreau. "I'll attend to the hats. How  mauy of '.ni are there? Ticketed and  labeled all right? Here, lean on my arm,  and  I'll .take  the band-boxes  in my left  _________'*___ Now, then!   Not,too fast!"   ��������� Guy Moreau had never "been in a working-woman's room before, and us he stood  on the threshold, he could but marvel at  the aspect of utter destitution that pervaded it. A little girl who was making artificial flowers by the light of a kerosene  lamp sprang to her feet ut tho sound of  their steps. ���������  "Oh, Nelly, aro.you hnrt? What <is the  mutter?" cried she. "What makes you  look so white?"-- ���������   -  '���������'' "It's my little sister," said the girl, turn-'  ing to hor conductor. "Wo live here together. Oh, sir, 1 am very much obliged  to you!"  But whon Guy. Moreau was gono, old  Mrs. Macrabbin, who had como upstuirs to  rub Nelly Knox's ankle with ca mphor,  shook her head gloomily at tho recital of  the evening's adventure. .  " "Wasn't he kind? And a perfect stranger too," said Nelly, radiantly.  "Poor dear!", said Mrs. Macrabbin,  "What do you know about tho ways of  a city? It's no ways likely that you'll  over see hide nor hair of them bonnets  again!"   "  5   "What do you mean?"  cried   Nelly, indignantly.  "Mean?- Why, that it's a confidence  game, to-be sure, and your fine, genteel  young man has made off with the French  bonnets."     <.,  ���������'Nonsense!" cried Nelly.     "With a face  like that���������and  such a voice, and such a  manner?"    ** - -      .    - '   *'  "Well,"   said Mrs.   Macrabbin,    "we'll  see!"

Do I look like  a person who wears water-lilies, and mara ���������  bou?"       ....  And Guy, who was walking, whistling,  away, after leaving his last bandbox, stopped short at the old lady's shrill voice.  "Hello!" said he. "I've left the Petherick hat at St. Jame's, and the St. James's  hat at Petherick's,    I must go back," ,  "I should think so," said Mrs. Petherick.  "In my days, errand-men attended to their  business! Nine o'clock at night, and my  new black-velvet hat, with the satin bows,  not come homel"   " -  " I'm very sory, ma'am," said Guy.  " Much difference it makes whether yoii  are sorry or not," said Mrs. Petherick,  leveling her blue spectacles. wrathfully at  Mr. Moreau. "You must be a very presuming young man to " have any opinions  at all on the subject I beg that you will  Bet this awkard blander right at once, and  I shall most assuredly report it to Madame  Dunoyer."

"I beg your pardon, Miss St. Jaines,"  said he, "but I am really very deserving  of blame. Hero's your bandbox, and I've  left old Mrs. Potherick's here by mistake."  " Is it a joke," said the bewildered fair  one, "or a wager, or what?"  "Neither one nor tho other, said Guy.  "Sober, sorious, earnest. And now, if  you'll lot mo. have tho other bonnet, I'll  get back before Mrs. Pot-rick's rage waxes  any hotter."  He lifted hi* dripping beaver and vanished with the bandbox under his arm,  smiling to himself at the insight ho had  obtained into Miss St. James' character.

"Make 'oin four different s'zes, and thon  some of 'em will bo suro to fit," said ho,  triumphantly.  ���������    ���������__��������� * * * *  "Wedding-cake, eh?" said Mrs. Macrabbin. - "Put up in a watered-silk box and  tied with white-satin ribbon!

A MODERN FAIRY TALE.  __���������t-  A Princess, mi  Old   Woman   anil  Iron in u  Little Comedy.  ��������� This is not a fairy story, but it is almost  as pleasant reading. Onco upon a time the  Princess Louise, wifo of the Marquis of  Lome and daughter of the Queen of England, was taking a lonely walk���������after the  habit of princesses. Sho approached a  cottage door, as is also a pleasing habit of  princesses. "Furthermore, Bhe carried out  tho traditions governing the behavior  of royal ladies by .askiag for a glass of  water.  The old woman who happened to be  irouing, did not care to got the Princess a  glass of wator, and said so. She added  that sho was busy, and the spring was distant and that she wanted to finish hor  ironing so that she might 'go the next day  to see* tho " Queen's - child." Whereupon  tho Princess graciously offered to finish  ironing the shirt provided that tho old  woman would get her tlio water.  When tho old woman returned a neatly  ironed shirt wii3 ready for her. Where  the Princess picked up the art of ironings-is  not known, but tho shirt was beautifully  done. The Princess after she had drunk  the iwater, told - the old., woman who she  was and tlio. old woman was properly impressed. The. shirt was never worn', but  was kept to become a heirloom- in the  family.. And they all lived happily ever  after.  Midair Duel   Between Aeronauts.  During the Franco-Prussian war a bloodcurdling duel occurred iri midair between  two aeronauts, one of whom was conveying  dispatches .from the Governor of Paris.  The balloons, approaching at a considerable altitude, the encounter was commenced  with pistols. For some time neither combatant could secure the advantage, but' at  length one balloon mounted above the  other, and its occupant, seizing his momentary advantage, threw his grappling  irons on top of the other balloon. They  tore through the silken fabric as though  it had been so much paper. There was an  escape of gas: a shriek and the next minute both balloon and balloonist lay battered out of recognition upon the ground  2,000 feet bolow.���������London Tit-Bits.  I.

The buying and selling ot land iu "\Ve9t  Kooteuay has assumed such proportions  that the need of a centrally located Land  Registry oflice has become very necessary  for the dispatch of business. The people  of the district, irrespective of locality,  recognize the great advantages of Nelson  as the most convenient location for the  office. Citizens here do rot intend to be  backward in any matters appertaining to  the welfare of the town n_d the district,  and have decided to formally petition for  a registry office to be established here.  With this end in view a petition has  been circulated during the week and  numerously signed. It will be presented  to the government at an early date. The  request is as follows:  To the Honorable the Lieutenant  Governor in Council.  The petition of the rate pnyers and  residents of the town of Nelson, in the  district of West Kootenay, Biitish Columbia, humbly sheweth :���������  1. That your petitioners are desirous  of having the district of West Kootenay  set apart as a registration district, for the  recording of instruments and registration  of titles affecting real estate situate within said district.  2. Your petitioners desire that the district office of such registration,, district  be established iu the town of Nelson.  3. The towu of Nelson is centralh  located aud the most convenient point  in the district for the establishment ot  such office.,  4. Owing to the fact thnt the distriot of  West Kootenay is at present included in  the Victoria registration district, great  inconvenience, expense and delay attend  the transfer of property and registration  of < i ties.  Your petitioners therefore humbly pray  that nn Order in council may be passed  settiog apart the district of West Kootenny as a registration district and that a  Land Registry office therefore be established in the town of Nelson.  .ELISE L. 1310 G.

Resolutions were passed which set  forth the feasibility of the scheme as an  engineering feat aud the trade to be  derived from the trade ot Kootenny and  Uie agricultural districts of the O.-uag-n  country.  The road, if built, will run through  the Delta and Chilliwack districts iu the  Fraser valley to Hope, a village about  80 miles easterly of Vancouver; thence  south-easterly to the Hope pass in the  Cascade mountains; thence down the  Similkameen valley to Pentiction, tu  Okanagan lake. From the Okanagan  valley the line will cross to tho Kettle  liver country aud wind through the  mountains to the Columbia river somewhere in the vicinity of Robson. It is  estimated that the road would be 425  .miles iu length and would cost $12,-  000,000.  Resolutions were passed at lhe meetings which urge upon the Dominion and  Provincial governments that substantial  aid should be given to enable the company to proceed at once with the work of  construction.  Premier Turner spoke at tbe Victoria  meeting to a considerable length, but did  uot pledge his support to the project  although he declared that the provincial  government was impressed with its importance.  Nothing more will be done in the  matter until the Dominion and Provincial parliaments meet.  REVELSTOKE NEWS.  I'l-posed Incurporallou.���������Keiuoval of V.V.  It. Cur Staops.���������Eater prise of Citlieu..  Special Correspondence to The Miner.  , Revelstoke, Feb. 5th.���������Incorporation  is the talk of the hour here ; a small  majority of the. business meu seem to  favor self government; the cautious  majority being of opinion that the time  is hardly ripe for breaking away from  the leading strings of a paternal, though  rather parsimonious government.  ' One of the arguments adduced in  favor of building the new government  offices at "Victoria was tbe contention  that the hitter place is the Mecca for  tourists aud general jumping off place  of British Columbia. This argument  applies in some degree to Revelstoke, it  being visited by thousands on their way  to south Kootenay.  The pilgrim to Ross-  (aud on his arrival in Revelstoke, it he  ias to stay over a day, as so often occurs,  makes his way to the ��������� government  ���������office in search of information about the  lower country, but he is- naturally reluctant to enter this edifice which looks like  a cross between a dog kennel and a hen  house, and consequently does not form a  very high opinion of the accommodations  which the government of British Columbia has furnished us.  All Revelstokians with a dollar to spare  are sinking it in their own town and bo  confidebt are they of its future that they  ignore the adage about all the egga being  in one basket.  ' ���������  > It is understood that the Rev. Field  Yolland, vicar of Holy Trinity ohurch  here, bas tendered his resignation to the  bishop and* will engage iu the mining  -brokerage���������and-assaying-business���������with  Mr. Leake.   -    "  A Montreal syndicate, represented by n  Mr. Charles Ta.lor.bas applied for a lease  of a large piece of beuch ground opposite  Revelstoke, He intends experimenting  with a new system of hydraulicing ou  un extensive scale. Tbe operations  will be Watched with much interest as it  is a rndical departure from existing  .methods.  A woodcutter, Mffrcott by name, died  here this week. Under more favorable  circumstances this man might have won  renown as an inventor. He was under  the impression that he had discovered  perpetual motion; the machine witb  which he exemplified his theory is  described as a vory ingenious affair.   -  The -. following standing committees  have beeu appointed by the Revelstoke  Board of Trade for 1897 .-Public Works,  H. A. Brown, Wm. Brown, Johu Abra-  harason and Dr. McKechuie. Finance  committee, Chapmau, Carlyon aud Haig.  Mining aud Manufacturers, Wells, Litiug  and H. A. Brown.

A $15,000 brewery is b.ing built on  Mara's land ; a $3,000 warehouse on the  smelter townsite and several other buildings are uuder way despite the lack of  lumber and the bad weather. The repoit  that the C.P.R. shops will be moved in  the spring from Donald to Revelstoke is  well founded, although the local officials  who possess property in Donald very  naturally question the accuracy of tbe  . rumor. The- C.P.R. officials ought to  do the square thing by Donald property  owners and give them a lot in.Revelstoke  frefi, and transportation for their lumber  and effects.  14 IO.'
