The strike at Pittsburg, Pa., among  ��������� tlie steel workers is now likely to be a  fight to a finish.   There  is   unlimited  capital on one side, and all told nearly  100,000 men on the other.  Business = is rushing on the K. & S.  these > times. ��������� A, few days ago atient  Huston sent out nearly ten tons of supplies to points along the line. Miners  are going to McGuigan, Whitewater and  other points in parties of five or ten a  day.       '���������'���������' ������������������'���������'  There was" a .'.'hold-up" in a, hotel at  .Sirdar.last"Sunday night by two masked  men, while a game of poker was under  way, and by which the participants  were relieved of $200. In all such cases  the robbery is the work of men who are  familiar with the premises.  Harry Cleve has taken a position with'  A. David, the tailor.  The Dowager Empress of Germany  j died on Monday evening last.  J. Irvin has removed from New. Denver to Pilot Bay, where he will take  charge of the school there.  The estate of James Williamson, deceased, haB been taken over by his wife,  who will continue the business.  The Iv. it S. Ry. has installed a telegraph system on their line from Sandon  to Kaslo. No outside connection haB as  yet been made but hopes are entertained  for it. It is expected that a commercial  service will be established between  Sandon and Kaslo in the near future.  A number of children received their  First Communion in St. Joseph's church  last Sunday. In the evening Father  Cote established the League of the  Sacred Heart, with about 40- members,  and enrolled about 15 persons in the  Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carniel.  There is to be a meeting of the press  representatives of B. C. shortly, to  organize a B, C. association. The meeting will Jlikely be held at the Halcyon  Hot Springs. If such an association  can accomplish anything in the way of  helping out the newspapers of the  province, it cannot come a day too soon.  The owners of. the Heber & Rabbit  Paw mining claims are applying to the  cqnrts for an injunction' restraining the  Slocan Star from mining certain ore got  oyer the apex of the .vein, alleging it is  theirs. The suit is value bv contention  of $500,000. The'x also ask' leave to inspect the'workings of the Slocan Star,  and tlie appointment of a receiver for  the Slocan Star, for damages, and other  relief.   Thesuit is a heavy one. ���������  The Farce Continues.  The Whitewater.  The .Whitewater has started up with  22 men and will likely increase the force  at the mine. The roa:ds and buildings  have been repaired and fixed up in good  shape. This property has beenidoseda  long time on account of having-no market for the ors and the low price.of lead.  Large quantities of the output had been  stored away until there was a contract  with the Trail smelter. Before the shut  down the mine was working a large  force of men and shipping was increasing. The mine all through was looking  well. The concentrator will be kept  going, and after a while will be worked  to its full capacity.  Public Notice.  Re Municipality of the  don,  B. C.  City of Sau-  Whereas, the appointment of Mr. C.  E. Lyons to the office of'city clerk is  l\ illegal and not in accordance with the  statutes as the re in provided, consequently I have forbid him to transact any  business on tlie city's account, and have  caused him. to deliver, up, the keysqf  office, &c, to me.  Citizens will please take notice of  the above, and govern themselves  accordingly.  For further particulars, or on urgent  city business, please see me at city hall,  at 10 a. in., Monday the 12th inst.  Signed, GEO. LOVATT,  Mayor.  Scientific Miscellany.  It is reported that nitrate deposits of  great value and quite extensive have  been discovered in Death Valley, Cal.,  whence t'he principal supply of borax  conies from. ' '  Antimony in any form and copper  carbonates make fire assays for lead entirely unreliable. Wet methods must  be resorted to where their presence is  known or suspected.  The secretary of the Copper Producers' Association places the output from  the mines of the United States for the  year at 300,937 tons (2,000 pounds), and  the exports at 178,754 tons.  Contracts have been made for the exportation to Europe of 50,000 tons of  high grade zinc ore from the mining  districts of Missouri and Kansas. Zinc  ore has been growing scarce in Europe  for several years, while the district in  question has been yielding more than  American smelters could handle. The  disposal of the surplus in Europe will  tend to keep up pric-.s.  If it were not for the consequences to  to the city, the child's play now going  on in municipal matters would be amusing. The mayor called a public meeting  of "taxpayers" for Monday evening,  and as usual the non-taxpayers, who  have always the most to say, were there  in profusion. As this was the usual  night for council meeting, the move on  the part of mayor would have been impolitic but for the fact, the statutes, the  city solicitor, and all whose opinions on  such matters are worthy of attention,  say the council has been an illegal one  from the first of the year, because of  disqualified men taking seats as aldermen, and rendered more so by recent  elections and recent acts. The sooner  the council is-then elided the better for  the taxpayers.  At the outset the mayor read the city  solicitor's opinion setting forth the  council was illegal as several of the aldermen were disqualified; that the  clerk's bonds were improperly signed,  and that the special meeting at which  the city clerk was installed was  illegally called. At this juncture  war . to the knife was threatened, the  aldermen insisting on going on with the  council and the mayor going on with  the public meeting. The mayor, however, held the fort for over half an hour  rubbing.it into the alderman in turn in  his own peculiar way, and showing  everything done by the council of late  was invalid���������even worse a losa to the  city. Several citizens were called on to  speak,,, but as .the crowd of non-taxpayers werejn no humor to listen.to reason  or anything else that did not endorse  the illegaLproceedingsof the council, no  one spoke. At about 9 o'clock the  mayor closed, the taxpayers left, and-  the rest of the council went on with  "the business."  As we see matters, this kind of thing  can only end in piling up debt for the  property holders, as for others debt has  no concern. The government cannot  disincorporate while there is a debenture debt, so that recourse to a receiver  is the only conrse available, and the  sooner he is appointed the better 'for-  the place. Every day is only increas'ing  the debt of the1 place,' and the avenues  for extensive litigation, and but little  revenue coming in, as property holders  will no longer T'pay taxes into such a  bottomless vortex.' We presume the  aldermen "carrying on business" are  working on the principle they are legal  until pronounced illegal by the courts,  but this is only courting costs for  nothing.

It is the intention to have a tram built  from the mine to K. & S. Railway, but  this will not be done for some time.  Sandon Ore Shipments.

The Slocan Star are going to put in a  labatory atthe mine.  It is^reported that the Tamarack has a  dry ore payshoot of 16 inches.  Twenty men are at work finishing up  the Silver mountain wagon road.  A contract has been let on the Hartney which will keep the property working for some time.  The Capella has made a few trial,  shipments. Six inches of ore are in  the 100-foot tunnel. Six men are being  employed.  A New York syndicate proposes . to  buy up some ten groups ,of claims that  are situated in the Burnt Basin, near  the Bannockburn group.  The local shareholders of the Similka-  meen Valley Coal Co. received word on  Saturday last that the deal had gone  through in Toronto for the disposal of a  portion of their coal lands to capitalists  in that city. The money realised will-  be spent in developing the property.  / Tlieln'g tunnol of the Highlander is  now.in about 1700 feet, and is said to be  the longest in the province. Compressed  air is being supplied by the patent  hydraulic plant on Coffee creek. Cross-  cutting on the ledges has been under  way for about two years, and about two  months the Highlander vein was encountered 1570 from the mouth of the  tunnel, and in the face of the ledge there  is o% feet of galena.  The Ivanhoe.  There are 30 men employed at the  mine and concentrator. For the past  month the stall' was increased with a  few men at a time, ever}' few days, with  the idea of just doing development work  at the present time. The mill and tram  are working satisfactory, and the dump  is being concentrated. Manager Hickey  says it may be some time before the  mine will be working with a full force.  Enough of ore is being handled to make  occasional shipments.  A PURE GRAPE CREAM OF TARTAR POWDER  Highest Honors, World's Fair  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair  Avoid Bakine Powders containing  alum.

To the initiated, however, there is a  considerable differentiation.  A water  ice  is simply a lemonade  or fruit juice and water frozen without stirring.    Motion interferes with  the clearness.     A sherbet is a water  ice to which white of egg or gelatine  has been added  to give it a creamy  consistency.       Sherbets     should     be  frozen more rapidly than ices.  A sorbet is frozen more like water  ice, not so hard as a sherbet, and  usually has liquor added.  A frappes is simply a half frozen  ice. Its distinguishing' characteristic is mushiness. If liquor is- added  to a frappo it becomes punch.  Granites arc fruits or water ices  frozen without much motion and  with equal parts of salt and ice, so  as to ensure a granular texture.  They arc not frozen hard. Smal  fruits or large preserved or candied  fruits cut in small pieces may be  added just long enough before serving  to get thoroughly chilled.

Lettuce for salad is  proved by being put in  for several hours before  prepared  tor  the  tublc.  Soiled photographs may be cleaned  by sponging with clear cold water.  The cardboard mounts may bo cleaned by rubbing with dry bread.  To cool butter in warm weather,  siich as we are at present experiencing, you will iind the following a  good plan.

After    rubbing    the    potato   over  the  painting   (with  very  little  water)   a  slice should be cut oil' and the rubbing  continued.     As  you  go  on  the  lather should  be wiped off    with     a  j very    clean,   very soft,   wet  sponge.  : When  the    whole    surface  has  been  ! thoroughly     rubbed,     the     painting  J should     be     well  washed  with  luke  i warm   water,   and   then  rubbed  with  cotton  wool,   which  will  remove  all  Finally polish by gently rubbing with a silk handkerchief.  You   Can   Be   Quite as Happy on  One Thousand Dollars a Year.  Keep fresh. The man who can  come fz'csh to his work will always  go one better than the fellow who  sticks too long al it.  Nature's laws on the subject of  money-making are inexorable. They  can be summed up in the one phrase  ���������"Thus far, and no further." Tho  wise man is he who knows his "Thus  far." He seldom becomes a millionaire; but he lives to enjoy what he  has made, and lie takes pleasure in  the making of it.  The fool may die a millionaire, but  his millions cannot buy happiness.  The man who devotes his life lo his  business may in course of years become oblivious to everything else.  But this oblivion is not happiness;  it is merely a species of mania.  Just now it is fashionable.    It has  built up a race of touchy,    nervous  gold-seekers whose one object in life  is to get richer.       These    men have  existed in all ages, but although today  they  can  amass     wealth    more  quickly than ever,  it is safe to say-  that    never    was    the process more  wearing upon health and mind. Their  lives  arc lived upon the  brink  of  a  | precipice,    a    position    which is not  closely i without its little    excitements,    but  may be  Sometimes a, doctor orders a room  to be disinfected and if this is not  done properly ,it might as well not  be done at all.

Potted Beef.���������Slice thinly two  pounds of thin, raw beef and beat  the slices with a rolling pin, sprinkle  over them about a teaspoonful of  powdered .allspice,, pepper .and salt  to taste and add a pinch of cayenne.  'Leave'the.meat in a cold place with  the spices and turn it once or twice.  Then place in a jar and add only  Just enough cold water to cook it.  Tie some paper over the top of the  jar, cover with a saucer, and cook  in a very slow oven all night. Let  the meat stand in the jar till cool,  then pound it to a paste, using a  little of the gravy in the process and  adding more seasoning if necessary.  Place lhe meat, in small jars and  run u little melted butter over it.  This , will, keep for sonic time in a  cool place and when.served may bp  cut in thin, delicate slices with a  .very sharp  knife.  Mushroom Ketchup.���������Take a peck  of fresh mushrooms and half a pound  of salt, place them in a deep pan in  layers with sail sprinkled between.  Let it stand six hours, then break  up the mushrooms with a wooden  Bpoon and allow them to stand in  the cool for three or four days, stirring daily! Ascertain as nearly as  possible the quantity of liquor there  will be when strained, and to each  quart allow a quarter of an ounce  of cayenne, half an ounce of allspice,  quarter of an ounce of ginger, half a  teaspoonful of powdered mace. Place  all in a jar, cover closely, place in a j  fiauces>an of boiling water  two inches wide and paste six thicknesses together. Paste these over  the cracks of doors and windows,  leaving the door by which you leave  the room.; "-to be sealed after the  fumigator is lighted. If there is a  fireplace in the room, it must be covered with several thicknesses of  brown paper. The gum tragacanth  is easily, washed off and does not  discolor either paint or woodwork.;  EATING FRUITS,  Sickness may bt produced by irregular and excessive use of fruits and  vegetables but there is no clanger  when they are eaten in proper amount  and regularly.  Children are, as a rule, exceedingly  fond of fresh fruits and green vegetables, and if they arc allowed the  free and prudent use of wholesome  fruits and vegetables they will not  eat. them in excess. The greatest  danger ' lies in eating these foods  when they are not in proper condition,  Select only those that arc properly  grown and ripened and of the freshest, otherwise, they will excite disease. Never consider perishable  foods cheap which are not strictly  fresh and ��������� sound."-  A SURE RESULT.  "Say, old chap, Cofl'up and I have  a bet we wish you would decide for  us."  "No, thanks."  "Why, why not? We're both  friends of-yours."  "Exactly. So what's the use of  aad, bail *��������� my, making an enemy of one pi ypu'i.  which no wise man win envy Ihcm.  DON'T WANT' TOO  MUCH.  Be satisfied with your fair share.  Rest assured that the moment you  seize more you will make enemies,  who, though puny, perhaps, as individuals, arc strong enough collectively to pull you down a thousand  times over. Most' millionaires have  experienced this.  Remember, the Carnegics and Pier-  pont Morgans are few. They are  merely the fittest, who have survived.- In that struggle wore thousands  of others of equal promise* They  have broken down and gone under.  The chances against your becoming  a Carnegie arc hundreds of thousands  to one; is it good enough to risk  your health and strength in so unequal a contest?  Everyone likes to make money, if  only for the comforts it can procure.  But if the making of it entails- more  discomforts than it will repay you,  where does your gain come in?  There is a medium, of course, and  this medium must be governed by  the workers' capabilities. .  Brown and Jones are making  SlyOOO a year apiece in. similar businesses. Both want to add another  ������500 a year to their incomes. Brown  is a smart chap, and by stopping an  hour later every night at his business easily puts on the required increment. Jones, however, was already hard put to it to make his  ������1,000. The extra pressure worries  him to a skeleton, and finally hurries him into an early grave twenty  years before hi? time. ���������   '  THE MORAL IS   OBVIOUS.  Brown could stand the strain,  Jones couldn't. Jones was no lazier than Brown, but he was less capable. It was absurd for him to measure himself with Brown's standard,  for Brown can still make his SI,500  a year and keep in good health. It  is his normal output, he knows it,  and he refuses to work any harder.  Jones' normal output was worth  S750 a year. Had he stuck to that  figure he would have been alive and  well to-day. But he couldn't stand  by and see Brown passing him, so he  said. It was natural but it was suicidal." Look around and you will see  it everywhere.  How do you stand personally? If  you are in Brown's shoes and working at 5500 a year below normal you  are wasting time. Come, now, hustle'around and earn that surplus. If,  on the other hand you are already  making ������250 more than your true  working value and are contemplating  making another ������500. pull up at once  while you have time.  "It is easier to say than do," you  think. Nonsense! It is easier to be  proud than to acknowledge one's  limitations, perhaps; but the latter  is the wiser. You can be every whit  as happy upon $1,000 as upon $1500  or ������2,000 a year, if you go the right  way to work.   Most people don't,, of  course; but why should that affect  you?  Live in-a cheaper house. It is only a matter of pride, miscalled "self-  respect," and the comforts are at  onco      apparent. It     is     surely  belter to bo ' the best off  man in a small road than to  be stivjvining every nerve and penny  in the"vain endeavor to keep up appearances amid richer neighbors in  some larger house. n  Find out for yourself just how long  you can work without feeling any  deleterious after-effects. Try and fix  a regular hour for shutting up your  desk every night, and, having fixed  it, stick to it. Above all things,  start a hobby���������it will help lo bring  you back fresh to your work.  Be careful in your choice. Your  hobby should differ entirely from  your employment. If you are rushing about the city all day, try something not too fatiguing, such as gardening. If, on the contrary, you are  silting all day at a desk, try a complete change, such as cycling, or any  robust outdoor uxercise.  WOMEN    EXECUTIONERS.  Belgium  Had   One  Recently,    and  America  Had  One Years Ago.  What  do     you  think  of  a woman '  who   voluntarily   offered   herself      to  the Government as the public executioner ?  A few years ago the official public  executioner al Brussels died, and a  substitute was temporarily appointed. On one occasion this person  was ill and unable to attend. But  at the appointedi hour-a stout, middle-aged woman presented herself at  the central police-station and quietly remarked to the assembled functionaries :  "I've come for the execution. My  husband is not very well this morning and has asked me to take his  place. Please let us get to business."  The general stupefaction may be  more easily imagined than described,  which, being noticed by the lady  executioner, she added in a reassuring lone :  "Oh, this is not by any means the  first time."  It afterwards transpired that the  woman, whose name was Marie Rege,,  had officiated on several occasions  in lieu of her husband. Dressed up  in his clothes, and her face masked,  she had been the public executioner  at several executions', and never had  the proceedings been interrupted iby  a single hitch. It/ is needless to  add that the police authorities were  unable to avail themselves of her  offer on this occasion,  however.  Just before tlie American Revolution a woman was sentenced to  death for a murder she, had committed in Virginia.; The death sentence  was respited oh her offering to become public executioner, and, known  as "Lddy Betty," she performed  these duties for many years. She officiated on the-scaffold without any  mask or disguise, and flogged criminals through the streets with enthusiastic vigor.  .��������� ���������*���������������������������������.

'v ���������'  A well-known Catholic priest, in  the course of a letter, says that  children often inflict considerable  pain without seeming to be cognizant of the fact. He has known a  little Italian boy quietly trim a butterfly's wings with a pair of scissors as unconcernedly as if it had  been paper; and attach a tuft of  thistle-down to a bluebottle's leg,  and then stand and watch it borne  through the air, his dark eyes sparkling meanwhile with delight, but  with no expression of malice or ill-  nature, though it generally^ ended by '  the insect getting entrapped and entangled the first time it ventured to  alight. A Belgian once informed  him that he had known youngsters  in Flanders sew frogs together by tho  legs in pairs, to prepare them to  take part in a miniature three-legged  race, "such as they had seen run by  the boys at the village sports."-  The British soldier is in the hospital an average of -18 days a year, the  Austrian only 13, but the Russian  28 days.,  ������������������������-���������> Ulijl,kl4i.i,i  '"'^���������^���������"���������"^^^ caiimuuuuMiwmLzm  DREADFUL  ARM AVER!E  (THOMAS     HARRIS OU     OF     ST.

How would you like to have a  silken garment spun upon your body,  direct from the silk-worm to the finished product? It ought to be economical, for there would be no manufacturers' or middlemen's profits to  divide, akd it ought to give satisfaction as to fit.  But the chances are that you  would be tickled to death, for, in-order to accomplish this result as it is  done by a tribe of South American  people, you would have to allow the  silk-worm.to crawl over you, forth  and back, until the silken fibres enveloped you.-  The people who clothe themselves  in silk in this remarkable manner  live far up the Amazon, and are  called the Silvas.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1901.  WITH ONE EYE.  It is notorious that lhe mining business of this country is almost invariably looked at, no matter by whom  viewed, with but one eye, and the interests of the country are forced to sutler  in consequence. The average local newspaper scribbler sella more papers to the  miners than he does to the owners: he  gets more business from - the saloon  keeper, the retail dealer and the customs  manufacturer than lie does ' from the  mine owner, and he joins in the- cry  "Salt the mine owners; make them pay  even with wry faces the taxes and whatever objectionable legislative restrictions  may be imposed upon them, make them  pay whatever wages are asked, ifcc, &c.  Who cares for them ? They never leave  us any of their money." This is looking  at the business with one eye only.  It is quite true, on'the other hand,  there are some mine owners and managers who would like to get men to work  for $o.00 a day and even less, and long  days at that, no matter what profits  their mines were paying. These men  look with but one eye also; but happily  there are but few men in tlie country of  this class.  Now, here is the history of operations  in the country, and ii all classed were to  study it honestly, carefully, and act  accordingly, it would soon change conditions in the country. Nearly all the  investments are with borrowed capital.  Tom Jones goes to England, eastern  Canada or cl&owherc, and lie borrows  $250,000 to invest in mining. He then  buys ten prospects at an average of  $10,000 each, (none too much for the  prospector,who may have spent years of  time and much money on their claims.)  .Jones next spends $5,000 on each in  trails, burikhonses, &c. Tic next spends  $10,000 on each (the last of his money)  in machinery, tools, the feed of men,  ppwder,&c,and out the of ten properties  he has found one that pays. The mo-.|  nienfc this fact is known, the miner  wants higher pay because the owner is  making money. The saloon keeper, the  retailer, the customs manufacturer and  the newspaper scribbler join the miner  in the declaration the owner is rolling  in wealth out of the; money made for  him b'y the men, and no matter what  restrictions, obligations or burdens are  placed on him, he should be forced to  meet them.all withouta mummr. These  men never once stop to think that the  owner must make the full $250,000 borrowed, interest on the money, and pay  for his time the same as the miners and  the public generally have got, from the  start, or say $300,000 before he is even  with the world. Those who look at this  matter in any other light only see with  one eye. Before Jones has made this  $300,000 out of one successful prospect,  Smith goes to the money market to borrow another $250,000 for mining also,  and is met with the reply,"No sir; Jones  borrowed money from us live years ago,  and we,have not seen interest on it yet  to say nothing of the principal. Yon  must show us your wages, hours of  labor, mining laws and all conditions  affecting, the industry are of a class to  ���������make our money and interest sure to us  before we can lend more." These men  see if with but one eye, at least with a  practised business eye. The.������e conditions force a few facts stubbornly upon  us. that  all   should carefully examine.

Are  they increasing employment for labor?  Are they multiplying the trade of the  saloons, stores,' manufactories and newspapers? If they-are they know itand itis  [well.

'  We arc shown that if mines are.not  made to pay, capital cannot be got to  work more. We know also that if' mining is not extended, labor cannot be employed, saloons, stores, customs manufacturers, newspapers, &c, cannot be  supported, agriculture, lumbering, &c,  cannot be extended���������in a word the  country cannot be developed. The success of everything, industrial, commercial, professional, &c, depends wholly  on the mining industry. Are all classes  then doing what they can to make the  mine owners fairly contented and mining a success ? As a class of people, no  1 matter what men who see with but one  eye may say 10 the contrary, this paper  cares no more fur lhe mine owners than  for so many navvies working on the  railways. All that we are looking for is  the growth and development of the  country.   It is not a question' with us in  There is nothing in the contention  that such and such legislation works  well in other countries unless it works  well here. Let the government and the  people,as far as they can,free tho industry from all vexatious restrictions until  the properties under work become profitable, and theywill then be worked,  bringing in the capital the country requires, expanding business in every  channel, and developing the country.  When the mines all become established  and paying, the legislation working well  abroad under similar conditions, will  work well here; but until then let the  people and the tiovenmients, for God's  sake, have some sense, and endeavor to  see with both eyes.

THINK IT OVEK.    '  As we intimated in our last issue,  most observing residents of this country,  are fast coming to the conclusion, that  if this country is to grow and prosper,  the government must find some other  means of raising a revenue besides taxing the mines. When mines meet all  expenses incident to development, and  become dividend .payers, they should  of course bear reasonable taxation ; but  there is no reason .they should one way  and the other pay ball the taxation of  the country, us the owners say-fhey are  doing at present. The first impressions  that should strike our representatives in  parliament are that theniiiiingindustry  is the great moving element of the conn-  try ; and that if it is not made a success  no advancement need be looked for���������  that without mining a success lumber-  fng becomes dormant, agriculture a failure, and commercial business a losing  game/-* It is not then a question of gratifying the wishes of any class of the  community, or of acting on what Mr. 80  and So suggests as proper legislation on  the subject, it is one of simply removing  what the owners are in a position to  show is the cause of the cessation of  operations in . the country. Everyone,  knows the owners tire taxed by the Federal government.in customs dutius, from  the time tliey purchase their first pick  and shovel. We all know too they are  subjected to heavy charges for freight  'and treatment.. These things the provincial government . may not be in a.  position to directly cure; but what they  can help they should help, as the owners sav it is noc-any one legislative act  in particular that is cripplinu operations, but an accumulation of acts.  We pointed out in last issue, that  the provincial treasury must have revenue to carry on the expenses of government. Lust year it realised but i^SU,-  000 from all the lands wild and cultivated, improven'ients, Outside of the  municipal corporations, and all the incomes and personal properly ths province over. From the system of taxation in vogue this is not the one-tenth  of the revenue that ought to be raised  from these sources. Instead of trying  to drag the last cent that can be got out  of the mines, upon which the hope of  the country for the most part depends,  it would be a much better policy to com-  ATLANTIC iTEAHHP.'TiaST;  To and from European, points via Canadian  and American lines.

Should not this be apractical  lesson to them ?  There was  at' least quite a flutter of  excitement among the residents of the  town up by the mill on Tuesday last. It  appears that Geo. Lovatt has the only  water tmpplv in the locality,  and   that  all tha residents of both hills have been  going there for a eupply.   It is known a  couple of parties have been in the habit  of causing the owner a great deal of annoyance, and at times ho  little  inconvenience.   This led to a filling up of the  well, a change of water supply, and the  fencing up of the roadway by Mr. Lovatt who claims the road is his private  property, though some people say it is a  public street.   This led to further'hostilities, until  on   Tuesday Lovatt was  accused of drawing what was found to  bean empty gun, on   some   trespasser.  There   surely   must   he  in a civilized  country like this some easier and more  reasonable wav of settling these diOer-  encps, as a great many innocent people  in this instance are forced to -suffer _for.  what is .alleged  to  be   the sins of  a  few.   If there is an allowance anywhere  there for a street or  road   it  should be  established at once, to settle disputes,  and relieve the residents of the locality.  As far as private property goes Mr. Lovatt has. of course, the right to do as he  likes with his own, but w.e.are not sure  he is taking  the  easiet way   to  settle  matters and secure the lasting  friendship of all his neighbors if. he desires it.

Kis  Majesty Is Very Regular  and  Punctual in His Attendance.  The easiest  way to  see the   King  is t,o go to church with him, says a  recent London letter.   When he is in  London   ho  always   attends  morning  services at  the  Chapel   Royal,      St.  ���������   James's '.Palace;  when,   at 'Windsor,  St.  George's Chapel, and when     at  Sandring'ham,  St.  Mary's.   No   man  in England is    more punctual      and  regular, in  his .attendance upon     divine     worship ,' than King Edward.  No matter whether he is at home or.  abroad,   he    never passes a Sunday  without    at least    morning  prayers  and   makes   it  a rule not  to   attend J  any service but that of the    Church !  of .England.  The people of London, .who.usually  show   great   curiosity to   see    their  King, let him alone on Sunday and  allow him to worship in pea.ee. It  was a remarkable fact that last  Sunday morning, when there were  at least 2,000 people in tho courtyard of St. James's Palace listening  to the music of the band at guard  mount, not more than fifty or sixty  people, and they Lhe members of the  household, were .seated in the Chapel  Royal, which opens upon that court.  There is an outer entrance and an  inner one from the corridor of. the  palace, so that the King may reach  it from his apartments m Marlborough House without going into the  open air; but all^the worshippers, except the royaP family and the ladies  and gentlemen in waiting for that  day, arc admitted at the public  doors in St. James's courtyard.  It is a very small and uninteresting church,'-perhaps'' there is none  more so in all London. There is nothing attractive about it except  ITS  SEVERE    SIMPLICITY,  It is as plain as one of the Baptist  chapels in South London. The  windows are set in ordinary glass,  .without shades or hangings, . and  need cleaning badly. The altar is an  ordinary table, covered with crimson  cloth,'upon which the cross of St.  Ceorge and the three plumes of the  Prince of Wales are embroidered in  gold. The only ornaments are a  large brass collection plate, two  tall candles in brass candelabra and  two brass vases holding bunches of  snowballs. There is no crucifix or  cross, but over the altar is a fine  painting of the.Madonna by Rubens,  which, however, is too large for its  place.  There are sittings for about 200  people���������-long pews running on'either  side of a single aisle to the wall.  The first pew within kneeling.distance of tlie altar rail is occupied  by the King and his family, who  prefer to sit with the congregation  than to use a gallery of handsomely  caryed oak, which projects from the  palace wall and was intended to in-  siare their privacy.  At 9.30 o'clock, while the King,  Queen, and Princess Victoria partook' ^'^ entrance  of the communion, administered by'  the Rev. Mr. Shephard, sub-dean of  St. James's, the outside doors of  the chapel were closed and locked.  A little group of people gathered  there to await their opening. They  were plainly dressed, serious persons, who did not look distinguished, but may have been such, because  appearances are very deceitful. Most  of them came on foot, although several of them drove up in carriages  that bore coronets upon the panels  of the doors. On the minute of ten  o'clock an old verger in a black  gown, bearing a long staff, opened  the doors to admit all who desired  to enter. Then he closed and locked  them. As soon as the little congregation was seated the verger opened  a side door that leads into the palace and a little choir of twelve boys  and men entered, singing the processional hymn. The choir boys  were dressed in a livery of  RED AND GOLD.  The men wore the usual surplices.  Each had a band of crape around  Iris  left arm.   The minister followed  Immediately  behind    them      came  King  Edward     VII,-,  dressed  in   . a  black frock suit and carrying a; silk  hat  in his  ungloved' hands.      Queen  Alexandra ;   and     Princess Victoria,  both  of- whom  arc    taller  than the  King,    followed quietly    , after him,  and he stood aside' to allow them to  allow them to  pass     into, the pew.  The Queen wore     a gown     of plain  black, a small black bonnet    and    a  crepe collar, as simple a costume, as  1 you could     imagine.   That     of the  Princess was    similar, except     that  she wore a black silk hat instead; of  a  bonnet. ��������� Both     are  beautiful  women,  and the Queen,  although   past  50 years  of age',  looks  as young as  her daughter.   Her figure    is girlish  and graceful,   her  abundant     blonde  hair is without a sign of gray,' her  complexion is fresh and pure as     a  child's,   and     shei  stands   and ' walks  ���������with the firm    erectness  of an athlete..  The Princess Victoria.is a little taller than her mother,  but not  so plump.   Her face is purely    Eng-'  lish according to the artists' ideals,  although her father is of German ancestry     and her    mother is a Dane.  One would find it difficult to decide  which is.the handsomer,  but no one  can look upon the Queen of England  without being convinced that she   is  a woman:of intellect, refinement and  amiable character.  THE ROYAL TARTY  was attended by a lady in waiting  also in plain black, and three gentlemen in ordinary mourning dress,  who occupied the second pew back  from the King, leaving one pew vacant between them. The first was a  man of. enormous stature, a large  head and striking face, with a heavy  shock of hair and a long gray beard.  The second was Capt. To 1 ford, an  aide-rde-camp of the King, a young  man, tall and slim, with a large  nose and slight mustache. The third  was Sir Francis Knollys, the King's  private secretary, a gentleman of  medium height,^ bald, with a gray  mustache.  The King'uttered the response in a  firm, distinct voice, and the Queen  and Princess also followed the service carefully. They bowed ��������� their  heads- when the dean read the prayers for -"Edward, our sovereign  lord," and "Alexandra, our sovereign lady," and one might imagine  that their responses were more fervent than usual after the, special  prayer to God to protect and preserve the life and health of the Duke  and JJuchess of Cornwall and York  while exposed to the dangers of travel on their journey axound the  world. Both the King and the1  Queen sang the hymns���������at least  their ; lips formed the words, although their voices were inaudible  because of the. choir. O-ivi of the  hymns was 'especially appropriate,  the second stanza reading :  What are the monarch, his court and  his throne,  What are the peace and the joy that  they own ?..������������������'  O that the blessed    ones  who  in  it  have share,  All that they feel could as fully declare.       '  At the close of the service, after  the clergyman and the choir had  left the chapel, -��������� the King stood at  of his pew and faced  the congregation, while his daughter  and wife passed out before him. He  brushed the dust off his silk hat  with his handkerchief as he followed  them through the private door.   _+   Dr. Joachim, the great violinist,  who has been honored by English  musicians, has been playing in public since 184.3, when, after studying  under Joseph Bonn at Leipzig, he  appeared at a concert and created a  furore. He was then only twelve  years of age. For seven years he  remained in an orchestra, studying  hard meanwhile, and then he went  to Paris and obtained the appointment of Director of Concerts at  Weimar. In 1853 he was master of  the Chapel Royal at Hanover, and  soon afterwards began his famous  tour of Europe, being everywhere received with the greatest enthusiasm.  In that tour he laid the foundations  of the reputation which has now become world-wide. In August, 1882,  he was appointed conductor of the  R.A:M. in Berlin, and in 1889, on  the fiftieth anniversary of his first  public appearance,  he was presented  CSE8"ST2Li-02Sr   ^K?:3E5-*������k.  is not sold by offering premiums, but entirely on its merits.

Sir  John  Cochrane,,  son of    a fine    old  nobleman, Lord  Dundonald,   was  one     of  those  who  ^thought the-liberties and interests bl  tlie  country  were  i.n   danger,   owing  to  the policy  of the  Government pi  the day,  and resisted it.   Six   John  was  betrayed  into   the hands  of the  enemy and was lodged in Edinburgh  jail.   One night the door of the prison opened,  and "he  heard  the voice  of his daughter  Grisel, who was.allowed to havo many talks with him.  Meanwhile the news came  that, his  condemnation had  been settled     by  the council, and that the mu.il would  come next week with his death warrant.   Miss Grisel Cochrane  told her  father that siho  had to go   away for  a few  days.   He  said:   "I  hope  you  will  do  nothing rash,"  and.  she  replied that she would do nothing very  rash.   She  rode   from   Edinburgh  U>  Berwick,  where her  old nurrse lived,  changed  her  clothes  of n. boy.   Then she  between Ber wick and  she   made   inquiries  King's  mail  messen-  they used -to put 'up.j  small inn. aJiout four  and there she  for the clothes  rode to a place  Belford, where  regarding the  gers and where  Arriving at a  miles south of Berwick, she asked,  for something to eat. The hostess  told her not to make a noise, because in the box-bed the King's mail  messenger was asleep., "Do be  quiet," she said, "with your knife  and fork." She began her meal.  "Can you get me some water?"  The hostess said: "Why; a braw lad  like you should sup ale." "Have  you no cold, fresh M rater? If you  give me water I will pay you the  same as for,   the ale/'    The hostess  explained that she would have to go  to the well, -a long distance ;off, and"  it would take ten minutes, but the  girl���������or rather the apparent boy���������  persu aded the woman to go for tlie  water.  During her absence the girl went:  to the box-bed���������there was the mail-  messenger asleep���������a "swack" fellow  Avith his mail bag under "his head,  using it for a pillow. On the l table  were his pistols, and very nervously,  sooner was this done than the host-f?'  tlie girl withdrew the charges. No ,  ess'returned with the water. The  girl finished her meal, went on the  road, made a circuit, and met the  mail messenger, and they rode together a bit. After a short chat 9he  drew a little nearer and said: "My  friend, I have a fancy for this mail  bag." "If it is a joke," said the  messenger, "it is a pretty poor one."  She took out a little pistol and presented it. The messenger pulled out  his pistols, and snap!���������the first  missed fire. He threw it away and  drew the other���������snap! He had to  hand over the mail bag, and she  rode into an adjoining wood.  She opened the bag, drew out an  oflicial letter, and rode with it to  her nurse's house, where it was  found to contain tlie death warrant  of her father. It was put into . the  fire.. She resumed her girl's clothes  and rode quietly to Edinburgh.  That caused so much delay that  they managed to get a reprieve, and  that incident, as he understood Gri-  her father was saved.

A look of horror was on Uic speaker's face and a sort of shuddering  spasm seemed to twist his features  as he spoke. He was a comfortable  merchant, John Jelly by name, and  his stout, jolly, good-looking wife  was with him. They were in. Switzerland, enjoying a. well-earned holiday after the rigours ,of business:  Just then they were in company  with other holiday-makers on the  deck of the steamer' that was plying  between towns on the Lake of Geneva.  One of the party, a little, dried-up  dark man, already notorious for trying to get information on all subjects, scented a story.  Well, perhaps ������ can give you a  yarn. You all know T am a manufacturer and a merchant in a fair  way of business. I was not always  so well off as I am at present. Once  I had not a spare half penny to my  name, yet I had in my head the idea  ���������/or the making and putting on the  market of the world-famous articles  I manufacture now. Only capital  was uiccded for patenting and floating the things. Capital was as hard  to get in the sixties when I was a  young man as it is now. I wanted  to marry Lucy here. 1 was working  at that time���������don't laugh! I'-m not  ashamed of the fact!���������in a wild-beast  show, and my duties were mainly to  keep the animals clean, to feed them  and to be generally ..useful.  One of the lions was Nero,- a famous trick-beast, clever and intelligent, but of an uncertain temper.  He was never taken, on tour as most  of the other animals wero in turn,  but was always kept at our headquarters, a well-known sea-side resort, where he formed one of the attractions of the permanent menagerie there.  His trainer was a -lashing fellow,  fearless and utterly careless of danger. His name Was really Smith,  .but as Smith does not look very imposing when billed, he was always  known as Signor Arati.  Arati was married, and he had a  family dependent upon him: His  wife was one of the lady '-riders,  and her ways were of the extravagant order, therefore it took all  Arati's really splendid earnings to  keep her supplied with all she would  have.  With a woman of this kind tied to  him Arati's life was not of the rosiest, and it, was ;a perpetual wonder  to me how he contrived to keep such  a happy-go-lucky air about him. The  danger of his calling was as the zest  of life to him, and wiuii, in all the  trickery of gorgeous circus gear, he  entered Nero's cage aiid put the  great beast through his paces, '-e  was as a man intoxicated with a  species of strange pleasure.  Nero's tricks took about an hour  and a half to go through. He was  the star lion. As a rule wild beasts  only learn thoroughly one or two  tricks, but Nero knew a dozen. Arati  had a little play of twenty minutes'  duration in his cage, and the lion  principal character  That was after his  duly exhibited.  One evening when tlie lion-room  was crowded as usual, and a mass of  interested spectators with breath-  held lips watched Nero perform his  feats, a catastrophe occurred. Nero  had been sulky. Arati had been  obliged not only to use whips but  the hot irons that afternoon at rc-  bearsel, and the brute . had not forgotten it. The trainer, lithe, graceful, gorgeous, full of quips and jokes,  entered his cage and delighted the  folk as usual, but he had.an anxious  face upon him before he went in, and  I, with another assistant, had instructions to stand ready behind the  scenes with hot iron bars, in case of  need.  An instinct told me, and told Arati, too, that there would be-need,  Nero had been so unwilling to work,  himself   was   the  during this act.  tricks  had been  so rebellious, so disagreeable in grin,  thai afternoon, that even careless  Arati had said he should be glad  when his night turn was clone.  A cry from the audience, a horrified catch of all breaths, then shrieks  and screams, gave us the signal suddenly. We sprang to lhe cage, and  were just in time. NTero, with ominous growls, had the tamer down and  his great paw was on him, just as  you may have seen acat's paw on a  mouse.  A touch of two hot irons on his  nose, a bang of another on his face,  and, with growls of anger, succeeded  by a roar of agony, the fire-stung  lion darted from-his victim, shaking  his head with the pain that had 'defeated ,him. In a second Arati was  drawn outside the cage, the door was  banged shut and all was safe. The  people were dismissed and the' lion-  tamer seen to.   -  Arati was hurt, but not so seriously as had been feared. When he was  fully recovered in body, however, he  remained seriously sick in mind. His  splendid nerve was utterly gone;  there would nevermore be any quelling of wild beasts by Arati. He  had no idea of the mhehief Nero  had wrought until he tried to take  up his work again, and found he was  quailing in the face of the quietest  lion. He was cowed, and the beasts  knew it.     That made  an end  of Ar  ati's  work  at once.  This was a calamity not to him  only whp.. had lost his good livelihood, but to tho proprietor who  could not ad'ord to lose the. spectacle  of "Nero's cleverness in his twenty  minute's play. The lion was quiet  again. I, who fed him. could put  him through some of his paces readily-  When Arati's broken r.erve became  evident the proprietor approached  me on the subject of taking his place.  I was to have the handsome salary  hitherto received by Arati, and I  was also to take his name, the trainer to take his own name of Smith  and to do my work.  This was rough on poor Arati, as,  from force of habit, we still called  him. The proprietor was a business  man and could not afford to do anything else as he pointed out. Ho increased the salary of Arati's wife,  however," and offered to give the  poor fellow more than he had given  me.  I dreaded the task, but though T  was sorry for Arati, I essayed it. I  coveted that salary, which would enable me to realize my heart's desire.  I should be able to patent my invention,, and to put it on the market,  if, for a very few months^ T;i could  dare this awful task . of lion-play  and nightly risk my life as* Arati had  done ;for years, in ministering to the  morbid fancies of a populace desirous of "enjoying the spectacle of a  life in danger.  So Arati and I changed places and  names, for he took mine, or tried to  take it, so great was his dislike of  his own; yet Jelly was no better.  Arati's manner, hitherto pleasingly patronizing, changed towards -me  from the first night I entered Nero's  ca.go. His look was murderous, and  yet agonized, as.I came out and passed him as he stood where once .'  had been used to stand holding the  hot .bars.  I pitied him exceedingly, knowing  his bitter cause to feel his degradation, for his wife, now she was deprived of his salary as it had been,  was known to lead him a direful life  at home. At last, however, his conduct grew so bad that J was roused  and spoke so plainly that blood was  up with both of us, and from words  we came to blows. Aftc: that I  never spoke a word to Arati nor did  he  to me.  Each afternoon I put Nero through  his act, enticing him by gifts of  meat, and using the whip less than  Arati had used it, though I had to  lay it upon the animal sometimes  when he was ugly> just to let him  feel he had his master.  ��������� One , afternoon as T. entered the  lion-room 1 heard an unusual turmoil  and roaring going on. Then out,-.iii  a great hurry, sprang Arati, with a  wild face and terror-filled eyes. I  wondered what he had been up to,  and eyed him keenly as he rushed  past.

Nero to  make the beasts roar so!''  Tricks! Little did I dream' of- tho  full devilry of Arati's deeds. I got  half way up the room when a sight  met my eyes that absolutely froze  me into ice. For the most vicious  of the beasts, the most intractable  of them all, Maris, the evil-natured  lioness, whose cubs had'been removed  from her only that week���������Maris was  out of her cage, the door of which  stood wide.  I took in the horror at one glanc,  and then I lost my nerve. I felt  that death was upon me, and losing  my head as I saw the beast crouch,  I flung the contents of Nero's moat  basket full at her, foiling her leap.  Then I turned���������a fatal'thing to do,  but I was in a panic brought by the  shock and the surprise���������I turned and  ran back to the door, reaching it |  just in time to hear the key turn in  the lock.  I seized the. handle, shook the door,  and screamed in my terror, calling  wildly upOh Arati to come and open.  Never shall I forget that awful moment! I quiver at the horror of it  now! For Arati bad lost his reason  that day, being wife-goaded to his  mad deed. He had loosed tho lioness and locked me in with her.  Maris was engaged with the meat.  Nero's horse-flesh proved my salvation. I had but one chance of safety, which I seized even as the  thought came that I was lost���������the  cage.  With a couple of leaps I reached  the empty cage and sprang within,  drawing the door towards me feverishly. ' All the cages shut with  springs: caged like a beast, but safe.  Then I considered that; should anyone else enter the lion-room, that  person would run a tciriblc risk.  Though I might shout my hardest,  Maris.1 would be 'upon the intruder  like a flash before he would realize  where the voice came from. And I  was-supposed to be a lion-tamer, yet  there I was in that ignominious position! I began to boil as I thought  of it. Then Maris came up and  stood looking at me with low growls  with lip-lickings, with tail-lashings^"  and I was very glad to be where I  was.    ,  I wondered how long it would be  before the room was entered. Then  I could havo howled aloud. For  Maris was close to the door and the  key was moving in' (he lock! Someone was coming in. I'got ready for  a'-.tremendous 'shr.ut, but my dry  throat seemed ill able to utter it,  and it died on my lips as I saw a  mad fac? look in���������Arati's face. He  saw the lioness and. with a miraculous return of his old power he  made straight for her.  And, oh! joy, he had repented of  his awful deed, lie had the red-hot  bars. II? was again the fearless  trainer. He "applied the bars remorselessly to Maris. The lioness  shrank, whined, retreated. She was  cowed. I forgave him., on the spot  for his late work as 1 saw him belabor the beast and drive her towards the cage. She went under,  but he. pulled, the door of the next  cage to mine open, then drove the  lioness from her. refuge and beat her  into the cage,  But what was Arati dcing? ' He  had caged Maris and shut the door.  Surely, surely he was not opening  the partition between- the cages?  There is a partition which can be opened between every cage in a lion-  row to admit of cleaning. And Arati was now opening the barred side  that divided me from Maris!  "Ah!   brave tamer, look after your  lioness now!" he    said,    with    indescribable malignity;   and then I saw,  his mad face  as it glared' in at  the  bars.  "Arati, let me out! Let me out!"  I kept crying, but he went away,  with wild, mad laughter, rushing  from     his     lips. And     1     heard  Maris move!  Then I knew no more. I came  round to find myself' in safety outside the cage, with many of the  show people round'me.  It seemed that Arati had been met  running out of the building with  wild cries of satisfied, vengeance. Ho  was secured,, and discovered to be  quite insane. Ho was babbling of  what ho had done. At once his horrified listeners rushed to the lion-  rooin to find the beasts settling  down to quietness, while Maris, who  had been badly burned by the madman, sat subdued in a corner of hor  cage licking her wounded paws and  rubbing her injured eyes as she  whined with pain; and I was lying  in a senseless heap in the next cage,  open to hers. They flung the partition shut and got me out T never  again entered a lion's cage, nor over  shall.���������London Tit-Bits.  BATHE  YOUE.  GLASSES.

The 'London- and British Columbia  directors presented the following reports of the Ruth and Whitewater  mines to the shareholders at'their last  annual meeting in London, England. ���������  THE  RUTH  MINKS.  . It will be remembered thattheprinci-  pal vein on this property which in the  early history of the mine produced such  large quantities of ore, was cut off by a  huge fault, and appeared to be lost altogether. A considerable amount of  development work has since ' been <car-  ried on for the double purpose of again  finding the vein, and in looking for  others, with the result that two strong  veins of high grade have been opened  up, which, it is believed, will  entirely restore the company's  original position, and greatly - enhance the value of the interest held by  the London and British Columbia Gold-  fields Coi, which remains the same as  when last reported.  THE  WHITKWATKR MINKS.  The London and British Columbia  Goldfields Go's, share interest in this  mine remains practically the same as at  the end of 1899.  The miners' strikedid not terminate  until February, 1900, and as some dffi-  culty was then experienced in getting  a suitable labor force together, it was  not until somewhat later that the mine  was able to resume shipments, which,  however, were again suspended at the  end of last year, owing to the,action of  the American Smelter Combination in  refusing to renew their contracts .for  dealing with the silver lead ores in the  district.  This latter circumstance was unfortunate, occurring as it did justat.-the  time when the mine had commenced to  pay dividends, which, from the appearance of the developments then beingcar-  ried out, gave every promise of continuance.  From these and more recent developments our engineers report the mine as  looking far better than it has done for a  long period previously.  Under these latter circumstances, and  in view of the assistance recently granted to the local silver lead smelters by  the Canadian government, your directors look forward to an early settlement  of the question and a resumption of  shipments, which, it is believed, would  soon put the company again in a  dend paying position. \  Jobbers and Retailers in  Hardware  and  Mining Supplies  divi-  The Ore Finder.  The ore finder that has worked out  wonders at the Last Chance mine and  one or two other clain in this camp, is  now going over the ground of the  Neepawa on Ten-Mile, and the managers  say that it is civing satisfactory results,  doing away with tunnelling and drifting  to find ore. .Ore bodies have been  located, the value and extent.  The scientific name for the mineral  finder istheterreohrneter. The apparatus consists of a battery, the terreoh-  nieter and brass rods and insulated  copper wires. The operator directs the  work of laying the wire and placing the  rods, keeps a record of the measurements, and plans the work as it proceeds, in accordance with the results  obtained. The method of locating  metals in the earth consists of, measuring the resistance of the earth as a  conductor between rods inserted in the  ground, and where the resistance is  light there is sure to he mineral, where  the resistance is heavy there will be no  metals of any kind.  Secured an Interest.  Dr. Hendryx has secured a quarter  interest in the Joe Joe group of four  claims on the north fork of Carpenter  creek, about \%, miles from Three Forks,  from Thos. Trenarey and associates.  The doctor will go up shortly and look  over the ground. These claims were  staked years ago, with good surface  showings, and have since with development done a little shipping, netting  good returns. Thera will be no extensive work done on the property this  summer.  STRAYED.
