Twenty-Oae Brave Canadian Soldiers  .Lay Down Tlieir Lives, for  Queen and'Country.  London, Feb. 21.���������At a meeting of  the town council at Windsor this morning it whs announced that news had  reached Winn's-.r Castle that Lady-  smith hud been relieved. Tho announcement wns recoiyed with shouts  of "Brave Bulicr."  _ Berlin. Feb. 21.���������Tho Tagcblatt publishes special dispatches from Brussels  which Bay that the Transvaal legation  there . announces that the Boers are  evacuating Natal, their position in that  colony being no longer tenable. General Joubert, it is added, has ordered a  concentration of .-ill available forces to  oppose General .Roberts. The seige of  Ladysinith, ir. ia added, will be raised,  and Bulicr will enter the to.vn at the  end of tho week.  Toronto, Feb. 21.���������A special to the  Globe says : The lirst Canadian contingent wan cng.iged nt IModder River  all day on Sunday. .Eighteen men of  the regimen!, were killed and sixty  wounded. Among the wounded was  Captain Mason, of Toronto. The Canadians forded Modeler river alter a  night's march.  Pretoria, Feb. 21.���������A portion of the  official report from General Cronje  dated Sunday lias been given out as  follows : Yesterday morning about six  o'clock, while removing the,laager near  Scholtx Nek, wc wero attacked by the  Britisn. The light lasted until 7:30 in  the morning. Although on tlie whole  the British were driven back, they each  time resumed the attack. The loss to  British must have been considerable.  Thus far tho Boer loss has been 8 killed  and 12 wounded, ' This morning the  British shelled us with cannon. Chief  Commandant Ferrerezra's force was too  small to stop the cavalry from entering  Kimbcrley."  Cape Town, Feb. 21.���������A special correspondent ol* the C'luc Argus says :  ���������"General .Cronje is surrounded, at Paa'r-  deberg Drift, but is offering a stubborn  resistance. The British are shelling  the Boers and "expect to capture the  whole force."  first are turning out highly satisfactory  to their employers���������tho parties most  interested���������and they ������re every clay  writing to their friends in the highvst  praise of the situation here���������tho nature  of the work, tne climate anil the wages  ���������it is not unlikely���������that numb era of  miners from those parts may come in  from time to time and they will stand  their chances with other applicants for  employment. Wo would say in this  connection, the situation must not be  misunderstood���������the Silver-Lead Alines  Asociation have neither offers nor  premises before the late operatives or  the miners' unions,as all the offers they  made were rejected and, consequently,  those in writing formally withdrawn.  All the promises in existence are those  of individual representatives saying  they would hire some good men at  53.25, and would not discriminate  against union men; but very naturally  they will have a regard for the agrec-  ableness and trustworthiness of the  applicants. Though we have had no  conversations with the owners on the  subject, we put the matter this way as  the'greatest probability. Already they  have had applications from many  quarters for twice the number they re-  'quire. It is safe to say that not more  than 350 men will be hired around  Sandon bel'ore June and there arc probably 300 of the number now aL work  in the following proportions:  The Payne 100  Donnelly 15  Sunshine 12  Last Chance 35  American Boy 12  Queen Bess 30  Ivanhoe 35  Ajax 5  Sovereign 10  Madison 5  dill! MI 10II.  Tlie Vancouver World Now Advocates  The Review's Contentions.  The others are scattered in small forces  in the prospects and other surrounding  properties.  The Star is not in the association  consequently little is known of its  course, but it is probable a commencement will bo made when a suflicient  supply of water is had to run the con-  cen'rator.  The Labor Situation.  THE LEGISLATURE ADJOURNS.  The B, C.  House Respects the Memory,  of Our Slain Volunteers,  Victoria, Fob/ 21.���������Tlie   legislature  '��������� met today  only  to adjourn  for a day  "vJjut of respect,, to the'.memory of the  British Columbians killed- at Mocider  River. Semlin moved and.Tuni'er sec-  conded the resolution, both referring in  feeling terms to the shock to the oonir  munity following so heavy/a percentage of, loss in the first serious engagement of our volunteers. In the list of  nineteen Canadians  killed   and  sixty  '.' wounded, in, the crossing of the Modder  river on Sunday,  the  following mem-,  ' bers'of tlib western company appear :��������� '  Killed���������Su-geaut Oo.tt jprivates.Som-  .ers, Maunurell and Todd, Victoria;  nrivate Jackson, Vancouver.  * -.Wounded���������Captain Arnold, Winnipeg; private s Andrews, Beach, Finch-  Smiles and Lt-oman, Victoria; privates  Thompson and Niubergall, Vancouver;  privates Duncalfe and Mckenzie, Winnipeg.  Tho name of private . R. Dizon is  given also among the wounded, but  there is no such man on the official  roll of tho western company. This  may be meant for private J. H. Dick-  eon, of Victoria, or private W. J. G.  Dick ion, of Nelson.   .  A number of men threw up $3.00 a  day at Ainsworth the past ten days  and came over to get $3.25 here. As  several of these were men who refused  ������3.25 here some time ago and went to  Ainsworth at -.S3,, they' must not find  fault if. they cannot get-employment  here now. The men who allow union  amenities, built on such lines as,these,  to stand in the way of their own prosperity must see their mistakes sooner  or later.  There is a lot of steady, good looking miners in from Rossland the,past  week, looking for work in consequence  of the 700 men being laid off in that  city. They.,-say a great many ham-  mersmen were employed in the smaller  properties around there and they got  but ������3vper day. They will": insist on  $3,25 when' operations resume oyer  there ; at least this is what many say,  and it 'will; iead to an advance ail  around to equal the wages' paid in the  Slocan. ,.        '���������'���������.."'..������������������'  ''Knowledgeable" men on every hand  are now advancing re'isons for the settlement of the labor trouble, and there  is but one���������the importation of those  much-abused.aliens. If the agitators  could have Kept out that "thousand" of  them, of whom they telegraphed to  Ottawa, the men would'have seea that  the. machines-.had. the owners by the  throats and no settlement would have'  bean 'made. It is the owners, lor those  importations, tho business men should  thank for the restoration of business in  the Slocan. It now only,remains for  all to sink their differences, shake  hands all around���������miners, owners and  bus;ness���������and thank fortune that the  worst is over.  Here and There,  The following is a clipping from the  editorial eolumns of that paper:  '"We   are in   thorough accord  with  those who favor an eight-hour la.v, but  wo certainly object  to the restrictions  which prevent able-bodied men work-  overtime, if they so desire, and receiving extra pay therefor.   We think that  this   is   an  suwarranted   interference  with the liberty of the subject by the  legislature.   The   Eight-hour law  has  been in operation in this establishment  since   September,   1S93, and   we   are,  therefore, thoroughly familiar with its  workings.   The rate of wages paid has  b^en" $3.50  per day.   When,  however,  '?,������' becomes necessary���������and that is fre-  'quently   the ease���������for our employes to  work  extra time, they are paid for so  doing nt   the rate of  time-and-a-half,  This system works satisfactorily alike  to employer and employe, but were.a  law in force, as is the case in connection with the mining laws,   no matter  how urg.-nt the necessity, we would be  debarred from turning out such work  as  it was absolutely necessary  to do,  and the men prohibited from working  aw>l  earning   increased remuneration,  therefore,  we think with everybody it  was a case of severe hardship.   This is  where the operations of the mining law  are considered to be defective,  and, in  our   estimation    the   clause   relating  thereto should  at once ��������� be   expunged  from  the Mining Act.    There should  be no barrier placed in the way of any  person,  if be is so disposed,  working  not  only the full time,   but ;<a many  hours thereafter as he feels inclined to  do, provided he is paid accordingly for  so doing.   As already suggested, unless  there are some concessions made   by  the mine owners and the miners, general stagnation will prevail throughout  the Province, and the result will be so  disastrous   that it is   not pj-usant to  contemplate the outcome of the dispute j  now in progress."  If eight hours is deemed a fair day's  work lor a miner,  or any one eke, no  one .can; object--to making that a statutory day,   so that when   no other arrangements   are made,   a man  knows  his work is done in   eight hours.   If,  however, the conditions   are,favorable  and������������������ he finds   an employer   willing to  hire him 9 or lOhours,it appears to be  an act of barbarity for a legislature to  step in with a  prohibitive act and virtually7 limit the   earning, powers of a  large class of the people.   If an act of  parliament said to the.salootirkeepers  you have got to shut up'whenever you  take in $10,-.or. any other, named sum,  there   would be a  great row with the  saloon men;  but some of them think  it is right for the legislature to say. to  the miners you have to quit work when  you   earn   $3.25.      We: do   not   say  whether 6 or .12 hours is a  proper day  for a miner.   We'take it that his surroundings have something   to do  with  that, but we do hold that if men want  to earn, $4.00 a day b}' extra work and  they find owners willing to pay it, it is  a case of the extremes! hardship   for  legislation   to cut their  liberty from  under their feet,   and reduce tli'em  to  the condition of slave,unable to decide  for their   best   interests   in their own  concerns. .  son's Bay Cup and Parson's Produce  Cup���������all were won by a small score-  one or two games being played for  each total.  The Parsons Produce Cup was won  by Smith, of Rossland, in one game  and one point. One each of the other  two went to Rossland and Nelson, tho  latter also winning the Walkervillc.,  In the hockey (junior) our boys demolished with tlie greatest of ease  everything that came before them. In  a friendly match they defeated Spokane 1G to 0 ���������a score good enough for  anything. As they were the champions of last year they, of course, only  had to play the best on the ground, and  that proved to be Rossland, who defeated Nelson, the next best, that day  7 to 1. The Sandon youths scored 5  while Rossland was unable to get the  semblance of one and had to content  themselves with a big "0."  We understand that considerable  money changed hands on this match,  ���������Wm. \Valmsley bringing home a basket  of "X's." Had he been able to get  enough Rosslanders to take him up on  each call, he would have brought home  the LeRoi and given U to the two  churches next Sunday for collections.  As it stands, however, they must only  take the will for tho deed.  On reaching home the boys were literally lionized, half of the city turning  out, headed by the Brass Band, to welcome them. After the formal greeting  Mr. C. J. Smith gave them a benediction.  MINES AND MINING.  300  24  PERSONAL   MENTION.  Miss Mason, of Ainsworth, is Visiting  Miss Dillie.  Mr. II. B. Alexander is reported to  be lying very ill in the N. W. T.  Mr. Wm. Karr is still on tho sick list,  though his illness is not of a serious  nature.  ��������� The Payne,  this week, shipped  tons of ore.  The Bosun   has now a force of  men, working two shifts.  The Marion, Silver mountain, is also  shipping a car this week.  The IJartney, near Silvcrton, has  just' completed the loading of its first  car of ore.  The Arlington, Slocan City, has so  f-ir this year shipped 100 tons,nll to the  Trail smelter.  A deal is pending for Mountain  Chief group, near Now Denver. J. C.  Drewry, of Rossland, is the probable  purchaser.  Fifteen men went up from* the Payne'  to the Last Chance last Saturday. Tho  latter property will only take on a few  more men until the ground dries in the  summer.  The Black Prince, Sringer creek, on  Monday made its lirst shipment for the  year, amounting lo 20 tons, and was  consigned to-the Trail smelter. A fine ���������  strike of IS inches of line galena was.  recently made on the proparty. .'  Mr. II. Callahan was in town the-  past week taking a look a t,the American Boy,- in which he is interested,  lie says that the property is sure to  become a large mine. The chute encountered in the lower level is a very  large one wilh improved ore. They  have about 14 men employed and the  force will soon be increased to 20.  From the Mining World.  Miss Hammond returned Saturday-  last from her southern trip and visit  with Mrs. Riblet in Nelson.  The Misses Hansen returned home to  the South Fork yesterday after a^'isit  with Mrs. Lane and other friends in  the city.  "Fighting Joe" Second Best.  SANDON'S SUCCESS AT ROSSLAND.  Our Hockey Boys Sweep  Everythmg-  The  Bostock Comes  to Sandon  the Second Time,  The Mining Situation.  Although the miners' unions have  capitulated, and done what they ought  to have done in'Juno1 last in tlnir own  interests as well as that of the mine  owners, the business people and the  country in general, operations will not,  be extensive, owing   to the lateness of j creek  the season, before June next, even if  then unless the. government makes  some acoepptable modifications in the  eight-hour law..  Some exception is taken in some  quarters to the importation on Sunday  night of 32.foreigners, but, of course,  not properly as these were arranged  with before the miners' unions took,  their late action.   As those brought in.  Nelson is is even with Rossland now.  Each of the places has two cases of  small-pox, and all are doing well.  A man at Napanoo, Out., lived on  water for ol days, ' when he expired.  The water could not have been very  strong.      . ' ,_^.     .

Grove's  iignature is on each box.  Although our sports, who went to  Rossland, did not bring home everything they have no right to complain  of their success. Sandon is but a small  place and, as a result, we cannot be expected to have a large number of men  who can give up suflicient of their  time to becomo successes at all amusements (and it takes time to make proficiency) yet our competitors at the  late carnival have no ground to find  fault with themselves in what they  did.  Mr. Wilson's rink took 2nd in the  Walkerville competition, bringing  home 4 silver medals.  Mr. GrimmettjS won 1st prize in the  Consolation, taking the cup, goblets  and 4 napkin rings.  Mr. Wilson's rink won 6 matches in  succession, and had this been in the  close event, or even in any one competition, he would have won, as in the  Grand Challenge he went to the second  last draw, as well as all three close  competitions, viz:   Tucket Cup,   Hud-  Joe Martin   has had   his little   duel  with Cotton and came out second best.  The general public have no great relish  for such combats.   Mr. Cotton may not  be all that some people would'like to  see in a parliamentary representative ;  but the fact that he has been already a  number of  years   in public life   and  nothing worse shown against him than  is   the   misfortune   of many^ another  public man ought to be sufficient passport.   We do  not look   for angels in  public life, in short if we insisted on  having them, it is a question if Martin  himself would have ever entered  the  doors   of   any   Canadian   legislature.  There is many a good man  in Canada  who has not always been able to meet  his    liabilities.   Circumstances   often  disappoint the best calculations.   If a  man is a fair average citizen, in point  of respectability nnd probity, it is all  we   can expect   in   our < public   men.  Those who know Mr. Cotton's., record-  say he is that; .and it should be sufficient fer even the extremely sensitive  olfactories of "fighting Joe" Martin.  Gujsts at the Reco.  Ed.

The Colorado Springs Stock Exchange  during 1S99 sold 23S,2l9,22l shares  having a cash value of $34,527,-169. For  iSOS its sales were 00,5715,029 shares,  value $10,2^7,5-10.  The total production of pig iron in the  United .State, during 1S99 was 13,020,-  703 tons against 11,773,934 tons produced in 1S9S. Tho-lS99 total was contributed 'by.21 states.  Tho copper mines of the United,States..  produced 23,73S tons of copper, of 2,240  pounds during the month of December,  an-increase of 571 tons over the November output.  The supply of rough diamonds is reported to be so seriously affected by the  war in South Africa as toliave led to the  shutting down of practically all the  rough .diamond shops ih New York.  Twenty-four carat gold is pure gold;  22 carat gold has 22 parts gold,. 1 of silver and 1 of copper; IS carat gold has  IS parts of pure gold and three parts  each of.silyer and copper in its composition;. 11 carat gold-is half-gold, the re-;,  uminder being made up'of 3.4 parts of:  silver and 8^ parts copper in its composition.  U. S. Senator Teller estimates that  the1 gold production'of Colorado during  the year 1900 will reach ������30,000,000 in''  value, as against $23,000,000 in 1S9S.  He say* the cyanide'method- is growing  better every day, and he thinks the  time will corne when it will pay to reduce ores which carry only ������4 or $5  worth of gold to the , ton,, also that  Cripple Creek alone has lying on . its  dumps $20,000,000 worth of gold, which  will eventually bo saved.

The  visit of these  capitalists is in view to purchases, but  up to time of going to press we had not  heard the results of their trip, but it is .  generally supposed it will he a deal, as  they  are anxious for good  properties,  and the Monitor   is known to be yal- .  liable.

The Law Times oils attention to the  tact ili.it the operation of (ho Wills  Act 01P 1837 is .suspended in i lie case  of soldiers serving on the field. In  oonst-quenco of this it is open to, a soldier to make his will on. 1 ho battlefield by word of meuth. His will is  al .o v. lid even though, hd bo a Iminor  when he makes it. Witnesses arc un-  iH-ce.s .ary, and a subsequent marriage  do s n t annul a will to made, as woul i  ordinarily be tho case.  LECTURES ABOUT BOERS.  A sct'of instructions has been issued  to officers commanding battalions on  their way to the Cape, to deliver lectures an board on the geography of  the country, the lessons to be learnt  from the war, ,l study of Boer tactics  and how thjy are best met, precautkns  to prevent the stampeding; of animals, Boer organisation, mobility,  armaments, and their appearance on  the fiuld as compared with British  troops. This ought, while giving ilie  men a betier idea of thu foe thoy have  to contend with, help t��������� dispel tho  ennui inseparable from a transport  voyagie.  the Boers round Colcsberg is the best  n������ws we have had from tho war for  many a weary day, has now scored two  off his own bat. It was to himl that  General White generously left the active direction of operations at tho  battle of ElaiuUlaagte, remarking,  "Go on, French, ilii.s is ,your show."  lie afterwards left LadyMniih by the  last train which got away from the  town before its complete investment,  and was sent to command tho cavalry  division on General Cl'it.icre's line,  which may be- described aw tho middle  line of advance, leading directly to  Bloemfonlein. General French, whois  in his forfy-eighfh year, is an ov-mil-  itia officer, who joined ihe 8ih Hussars in 1871. He served will* Ihe Cavalry Brigade "on tho Nile in 188-4-85,  and was present at (be battle of Abu  Kiwi. A dashing horseman, an expert swordsman, ho h is now shown  thai he is also a Inctician.v and'that  he can beat tho Boers al (heir own  game.   ,  WHERE GUNNERS COME FROM.  Ktutor's cor/espondent says there is  reason to believe that many skilled  Belgian and Dutch artillerists have  been engaged and imported into the  Transv.ial from April, 18ji>, in regular b-ilches up to the evo of] war. Thjy  receivea ������M m cash, the s.iine. amount  o-n arrival at Pretoria, 10s. a day pay,  and grants of land. Specialists also  accompanied Ihe  now  guns.  BRITUEK SCOTS.  One of tho officers of the Salvation  Army sent to South Africa writes: "1  sp^ut the whole of yesteiday afternoon  with the salJiera at Fort Napier. Tho  hcrge.iut of the liueen was telling me  hi?w the Gordon iiignlanders acted at  the storming of Dundee. Just as they  were ueaiing the Buur.s a number of  men in the Lioav lines held upl ihen-  guns, and yolled, 'For Uod'o sake, don't  snoot, lads! Wo are Scotch/ and  haven't fired a suiol at you :' 1l appealo  thoy stayed too long in ,iho Transvaal,  ana wore cominandeeied, and compelled to f.ghl."  H'UMOR, AT MODDER RIVER.  . The light-heurfeduess and ihe liuin-  ur of Mdiekiug have inspired those, at  Modder Rivet to not unworthy if tons.  Very plc.as.iug reading is tho resuli.  Tho ^ud Coldstream.:, lind theniuiseLes  in "a desperately thiioiy counuy,"  and evident'lyo envy their friends at  home. The 1st Scot Guards have their  minds fixed on tho Paris inhibition.  "Book cur. tickets," is their genial- end  hou.jc.-ful request.--. Tho L/th Lnncera,  however, eclipse all their comrades.  "Our stay iu this charming.'' watering-  place," they say, "is most pleasing- uo  tho flies undinhabitants. Both bleed  us' freely. We are living! on the best  of sand, washed down by Chateau Mod-  der." And then they mock-seriously  regret the fact that we! are .not with  Cgem to share their luxuries. Cheery  humor of this kind ought to carry the  men far.  >;'���������"'. KIND BOERS.  'So many stories are current, mariy  unfortunately true, with regard to  transgressions of. the ordinary rules of  civilized warfare by the Boers; that I  am very glad," says The Times correspondent, "to be acble to give some instance in their favor, j From- what  has been told me-by several of the men  wounded at Magersfontein there is uo  doubt that a number of Boers came out  of the trenches on the, night after the  battle and gave water to wounded soldiers 1/fing out on the veldt. Thej fact  is that the better-class Boers���������and the  Free Staters are largely of the bettor class���������are personally kindly and  hioapdtable. The commandant, too,' is  usually eager to carry oil war in as  Civilized way as possible, restricting  looting, etc. But the discipline i:i in-  sufticient to restrain the interior  back-country Boers, many of whom are  almost h.-.If-savages, or the niisceliane-  6.U.V crow c������ rul'iianly, 'mean whites'  swept into  ihe  commandoes."*" ,  'i WAR AND CHARITY.  The expectation that tho flow, of  contributions to deserving charities  would be checked this ChrUti/ias by Ihe  diversion of public generosity to the  War Relief Funds is being fuLilled. An  official of tho Charitable Organization Society says that tha religious  and ph.il-nthropic institutions which  depend largely on the results of Christmas axjp-eais are feeling the pinch sorely. He is inclined to think that ordinary charities will suffer tot the extent  of 33 1-3 per cent. , Ai like* story is told  by the officials of other societies. From  the philanthropic departments of the  Londoia Congregational Union, two  pressing appeals have been sent out,  but have met with scarcely any response. Not only is* money not forthcoming, but even gifts of clothing are  not to be had. The (explanation probably is that London's "old clo'" , is I  wanted for the adornment of tho  Transvaal refugees,  HIS SECOND SHOW. j  General French,  whose   bustling o������ I  HOW LADTSMITH AMUSES ITSELF.  The Daily Telegraph has some interesting details of (ho stnte of Lady-  smith from Mr. Thorold, a butcher,  who has just arrived in Frere Camp.

A WAUCHOPE REMINISCENCE.','"'-  A writer in To-Day, in the course/ of  an appreciative article on "Fighting  Wauchope," says: One night Wauchope  was endeavoring to address, a very  stormy audience at Gilmer ton,-a rough  mining village near Edingurgh, but  only^his flashing eyes and vehement  gestures gave the slightest indication  of the nature of his oratory. When the  noise was at its loudest, and then were  popping up here and there throughout  the meeting to move votes of no-confidence, a rough Gilmerton carter  climbed upon the platform, and the  rabble quieted to hear the fun. Even  Wauchope stopped to observe the  chances of the situi tion. "A'm no gaen  to say he kens onylhing o' politics," began the carter, jerking his shoulder towards Wauchope, "but I can tell ye  this: when I was lying wounded at  Tol-el-Kebir an' dyin' wi' thirst the  Colonel made ower to me an' pulled me  oot o' the road. That's enough for  me, an' I'm goin' to vote for him." The  man climbed off the platform nnd tho  audience remained quiet. Another  minute and they were singing, "For  he's a jolly good fellow!" and,' five  minutes Inter, were carrying "Fighting Wauchope" shoulder high. He) had  won, nnd, but for a. change in' the) political wind four days before! (he election, he would have carried the constituency, too, in I he face of! his great opponent.  wm ran  I'r  It was eight o'clock of a Saturday  morning in February, when Mr. and  Mrs. Stone drove out of their farmyard and took the road northward.  Tho crisp snow of the highway, packed  and polished by weeks of good sleighing, creaked under the runners of their  "cutter," and tho sun was shining  gloriously over tho wooded hills to  the eastward.  Tho Stones were going to spend Sunday with "Cousin Maria," Stone's  second cousin, and the object' of Mrs.  Stone's admiration and envy. She  declared that there was no house  like Cousin Maria's, and no domestic  conveniences and advantages like  those she enjoyed; that nobody wore  such beautiful clothes, or' had such  good things to eat, or commanded such  resources to "do with" as Cousioo. Maria. In short, Mrs. Amasa Stone, who  had not boon a great while married,  and who had one. of the nicest little  farmhouses in the county as well as  one of the best and most devoted husbands in the world, was somehow a victim of that most disagreeable and distressing malady, envious discontent;  and the immediate occasion of it-'was  ���������Cousin Maria. If she could only exchange places, perhaps not husbands,  but everything else, with Cousin  Maria,  how  happy  sho would  be I  Curiously enough���������by that strange  irony of fate which we often sea cropping out in human life���������Cousin Maria  felt the same way toward Mrs. Stone.  Sho secretly, but sincerely, envied the  little woman with the big, devoted  loverlike husband and tho model fa'rm-  houso overlooking one of the most  beautiful and productive-valley farms  in Now England. "If I could only  keep house - like Cousin Ella I" sho  would sometimes say to her husband ;  and then she would add, to herself,���������  "Perhaps I might, if I had as nice a  house, and the things to do with that  sho has."  Sincere and cordial envy does not  make people dislike each other, by any  means; and it was natural enough  that Mrs. Stone and her cousin, Mrs.  Holmes, should enjoy visiting each other and thereby adding fresh fuel to  their mutual admiration. They traveled back and forth on these social  exchanges a good deal, and their husbands, who, liked each other, and each  others fare, by the way, were never  averse to "driving over" for a day's  outing.   . The two farms lay some 20  miles  apart,.

When Mr.  StoDe came in, he found the lamps all  lighted and his wife in a high state of  excitement and delight at the prospect of "using Cousin Maria's nice  tilings for awhile! I guess it's all for  the best," she announced, with unexpected cheerfulness. ��������� "For once in  our lives we will have a taste of keeping house with modern conveniences!"  It was a tremendous snow storm  that' 25th and 20th of February, Mr.  and Mrs. Stone was snowbound for a  week in tho Holmes' house and Mr. and  Mrs. Holmes, as it happened, were  similarly imprisoned iu thrirs. Roads  wore not broken through for tivo days  and no one knew how h:s neighbor was  faring.  in the meantime Mr. Stone took care  of Mr. Holmes's stock, and Mr. Holmes  took care of h:������, while their wives revelled to their heart's contonf in tho  supposed domestic advantages and improvements for which they had enyied  each other so long. At last tho two  families were able to get word to ono  another, and a day was set for tho mutual evacuation of each other's premises and a meeting at Hydevillo on the  way. Both ��������� parties were invited to  dine at Jnson Soper's, that memorable  day, and the reador may bo sure it  was not one of those dinner parties  that languish for lack of conversation.  Late in the afternoon, as the Stones  came in sight, of their own pleasant  farmhouse, Mr. Stone said, hesitatingly, "John and I had eomcv talk of exchanging farms, while we were harnessing up.     We thought, if���������"    '  "Stop right there, Amasa Stone I"  cried his wife, with a sudden uncalled-for burst of tears. "If you ever  mention such a thing again���������"  "Why!" exclaimed Mr. Stone, in  glad astonishment. "I thought you  were crazy for Cousin Maria's modern  conveniences, and John said that Maria  made life a burden to him by hankering after yours. So we thought we'd  please both of you by swapping  farms."  "Well, you'll neither of you ever  hear anything more on the subject  from Maria or mo," sobbed Mrs. Stone.  "Wo were both of us so homesick and  so ashamed that wo burst outcrying,  when we were up in the front chamber at Mrs. Soper's, and confessed  what fools wo had been. Ii guess neither of us will ever quarrel with her  own things again���������least of all, with  her  own husband 1"  IS IT FINAL ?  .���������Ml  MCI!  FROG   HUNTING.

A frog is soon sighted. He sits, for  instance, on. a log, facing the, boat, at  a distance of 50 or 60 feet.

The boat is  moved cautiously toward him, care be.  ing taken to prevent it from swerving from its course, for the removal  of the full glare of the light from his  eyes for an instant would break the  spell and lose the frog. As long ns  the light is kept full upon him ho remains without moving.

"Drive along,  and get there as quick as you can,"  was his wife's only reply, as she gathered the buffalo robe more tightly  about   her. (-  When they reached the Holmes farm,  at about i o'clock, the wind was howling' and tho snow driving across the  landscape in sheets.

And not infrequent!)  his perseverance is rewarded by "Yes."  Not one wom.nn in forty, or man,  either, knows lier own mind at the bo-  ginning of a love affair. There aro  so many factors operating for and  agiinst a certain course, which, after  it is once t.iken, must be irrevocable.  If you can make the gir! you love hesitate, you have won a long score in  i our favor.  And if you are a young man, and  are in love with a giil, and you are  sure .that there is no other man in  the way, don't take thai first-"No" aB  final. A girl likes to think you are  persevering, esie.i'lly it that perseverance is exercised in winning her  favor.  A man who has common sense will  not ininke himself obnoxious to a woman by asking her to reconsider her  previous "No," particularly if sho be  entirely     hcart-fre.o.  We know of a very happy couple,  now mrirried ten years, but not married until the masculine party to the  transaction had "asked" her five times  and been told "No" four times before  the final "Yes."  Girls aro'curious creatures. When  they are quite young, tliey set a very  high valuation upon themselves. At  sixteen, a gin would hardly consider  a prince. At twenty, she. might favor  a duke. At twentj-rive, a lord, or  count, would fill tlie bill. At thirty,  she would not scruple lo give herself  to a millionaire. At forty she would  miarry a niissiounry "from love of the  cause" and at fifty, she would jump  at the chance of comforting a widower with five children nnd a maiden,  aunt in his family.  A girl's ideal is high. tf the man  upon whom she looks with favor does  not come up to her ideal, she endows  him with imaginary virtues- and  graces. She places a good deal of  stiess on fine eyes, and handsome nose  nnd a mustache. By and by, when  she is older, sho will realize that, for  a life solace and support, eyes and a  mustache are not quite sufficient. Later, she looks to a man's strength nnd  stability of character; and still later,  she considers his bank account quite  as'mucli as she does the shape of hia  nose.' .    ���������      ���������'  .'''. _  Young men are too autocratic.

She spoke to him with' a kind of  half-distant, half-reserved familiarity,  that showed plainly enough that t\he  did not consider him; on an, equality  with herself. He seemed to, feel and  understand it, and his face flushed  slightly   as  he  replied���������<  "It is always a pleasure to obey you  miss Neslfo."  Then pray let me have Browning  at once.

"Why do'you not *go'for my book?"  she.- asked, with laughing impatience.  "There may be a. message for. me m  that letter,   Miss Neslie,". he replied  "Permit me to remain while you read'  it.'-     :  She, sat down where the faint,  odor of the lilies floated round her,  wherei the cooing of (ho white' doves  reached her, nnd read (the words that  darkened   her  whole   life.

Most people have an idea that it is  easy enough to rip a garment to  pieces. Any child can do this. It is  a matter that requires scarcely any  care or attention. Dresses are usually pulled to pieces, snipped at- with  scissors,  or cut with  knives.  To rip up a garment properly there  should be no pulling, tearing, or dragging apart.   If  one cannot   take   tho  end; of the thread and pull it out, the  stitches  6hould be  cut  with  a  sharp  knife.    Very  few persons can  rip    a  garment with scissors  without doing  it great harm;  indeed, many  find  it  impossible   to cut  stitches  with  anything without making holes thit render the goods ahsolutely worthless for  the one who originally wore It.   When  it is done the edges are so ragged that  a much, smaller pattern must be used.  In  preparing goods  for  the  dyer,  or  to be made oyer, every stitch should  be taken out. , It seems scarcely necessary to'say  that facings, braid    and  hooks and eyos must be removed, but  this is imperative, in view of the condition in which garmnts come to the  dressmaker . and'   the    dyer.       Many  dresses, capes and jackets are perfectly wearable after being carefully ripped, brushed, sponged and pressed. It  is a wonder that some one does not  set  up an   establishment  for  ripping  clothes and putting them'in order for  the..dressmaker.    The owner of  them  frequently  has not  time to rip properly,  or  is    too    careless    arid  unde-  stands too little the way to do it, had  she all the time in the world. u Some  woman in every community might get  a  tolerable living, or at least add to  a  limited income, by preparing    garments for remodelling.    .  the  almost miraculous   cure  of john Mcdonald, cape  NO^TH, N.

Treatment of many  kinds?   was resorted  to,    but without  avail, until finally Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills were ut^ed, with the result that  Mr:  McDonald   ia  agnin   enjoying  almost perfect health.   Mr. McDonald's  story  is given as follows in  his own  wordu:���������"Almost' th.rteen years ago I  caught a bad cold which lodged in my  back, producing a terrible pain. Liniments were at first  resorted  to,  but  they had no effect, and the trouble be-  and  oould not go out of doors  after  eamo so bad that I could hardly walk,  dark, as^ I would be almost certain to  fall   if I attempted   to  walk.  Medical  treatment  did  me  no  good.   I    tried  six  different  doctors,  but the result  was   always    the  same.   I  spenb ������30  for an, electric belt, but it' was/ simply  money wasted.     Years went on and I  was continually growing worse, wntil  in the spring oCfflSQS my lower limbs  would' scarcely support mev   In  June  of  that  year  I went  to- the .Victoria'  General Hospital. Halifax, wh-ere I remained  for    two monlho under    the'  treatment of the best specialists, but  when I  returned home Iwas actually  worse than/ when I entered the hospital.   This thoroughly discouraged me,  and; I  gave up all, hlope of- (wer  getting   better.      I   continued   to    grow  worse    until    about    the     first      of  January,       189C,    wheia    I   hud     become so  bad  that I  rould notf stand  alone, as my legs were Hko sticks under me. My only means of locomotion  was  crutches, " and my  legs  dragged  after   me   like  useless  piccos  of   timber; I cculd  not raise t hum one Inch  from the floor.   About the first of Iho  following    April,    Rev.    Mr. McLeod  strongly   urged  mo   to   try   Dr.   Williams' Pink Pills. 1 had tried so many!  things    without    benefit,    that I did  not think the pills could help me, but  nevertheless   decided   to  give   them  a  trial.      After using six boxes I could  see  that  there was a slight improvement, and I continued using the pills  until   I had   taken  thirty  boxes,   and  by that  time now life and vigor and  returned to my legs, and I have since  been  able   to  attend  to  my  business  behind the counter without' the aid of  crutches,   or    even    a stick.      U ider  God's    blessing    Dr.    "Williams   Pink  Pills have restored me to a now measure ot health and1 energy, I never expected to again enjoy, in this world.   ���������  My  restoration  has caused a great  wonderment in  this section, and as a  result I have sold many grosB of Dr.  Williams'Pink Pills in my store, and  many    of    those    who    have  bought  them from mo tell mo thoy have cured them of their troubles.  Dr. Williams Pink fills act dlreot-  ly on the blood and nerves. They do  not purge! and therefore do not weaken like other medicines. They give  strength from the first pill to the  last used. There are many dealers  who offer pink . colored -substitutes,  because the substitute gives thorn ������  greater profit, but these should always bo refused, as substitutes aro  either dangerous or. absolutely worthless.   : .

A lady who is noted for the systematic orderliness of her home recently made a visit to a friend who lives  in a large, ��������� old-fashioned, rambling  mansion, in spacious grounds, in a  suburban town. Mrs. Orderly was  very careful about shutting doors, and  frequently took herself to task after  any of hor outings because the doors  of tho closets in her rooms were open.  She imagined sho must have forgotten them, and felt some vexation on  account of it. After a time she ,observed that almost all of, the cupboard  doors in the. house stood open in the  same way. . Ifrom force of habit she  closed one of them while her hostess  was in the room, when that lady remarked :  " I wonder if you have observed that  I am quite given to leaving my closet  doors open. It may appear like carelessness, but 1 assure j-ou there is a  method in it. As long as the doors  were slightly closed I was bothered  to death by moths. They seemed to  have an insane desire to eat up my  best clothes .and do what I could I  found no remedy. At Inst an idea  struck mo, that as light, was not favorable for their business I might gain  a point by leaving,everything exposed  to the sun. Since that time I have  purposely left' every door open, and  moths trouble me but  little."  A SOLDIER SUPERSTITION.

If the Nelson Tribune  could only make the people believe  there was some kind of connecfinn, in  trie settlement of, the Slocan troubles,  between the mine owner.i'u.^ociiition  and the,miners' unions, by which, the  latter were in some way recognized by  the former, it wwild be quite willing to  go to its grave "unwept, tinhonored and  unsung."   1-1 ear the print:  ''Tho terms upon which the Slocan  tronlile has been settled .ire set out in  a communication from (he Silver-Load  Mines Association, under tlie date of  December 2'in\, to the following effect :"  We want the Tribune once for all to  understand thr.f the offer referred to  above was unreservedly, withdrawn by  the mine owners, when the unions refused to accept it unconditionally.  There is virtually now no oiler of any  nature or kind, and has noi been since  the early days of January, from the  mine owners association for acceptance or rejection   by Ihe unions.

Work while you sleep without  a grip or gripe, curing Sick  Headache, Dyspepsia and  Constipation, and make you  Teel better in ihe morning.  the Tribune .'understand this .?  The s'iim and substance of the  matter is this:   When  the great body of  the'miners saw that the ���������.-machines of  the unions were tumble- to deliver the  goods'they hud sold���������that: they.were  'unable-to beat the owners   by keeping  out "alien" niincrs���������they had.either to  break awiiy   from   the machines and  hire or have the mines all filled by outsiders.-So far ns  the miners, are'now  hiring, they are doing it with individual owners and  not -with/.the association.   We believe the owners''are paying the wages in the schedule referred  to by the Tribune,  but it is simply of  their own accord and not that the association--has held the offer over for the  consideration of the union as the Tribune'soys is- the case.'. It is a complete  defeat of the machines of the unions,  but the owners will not take-advantage  of   the .circumstances  but   will  give  .  good, deserving men the 'highest wages  in the country.  If the Tribune how  really wants  to  do the miners a good ,turn let it join  The Review in  advising'them to discard  from their unions all newspaper  men, hotelkeepers, business men, etc.,  etc., and have no members who are not  actually working miners.    Let them  next, while not discriminating ngainst  nationalties,      expel      every     Coeur  d'Alene rioter, and all others who mine  with   their   mouths, instead   of   their  hands, from all offices  in their unions,  nnd next cut,entirely loose from the  Western Federation.   If they do these  .things and have their unions managed  by  cool, level-headed men  who   have  reasonable regard for  the progress of  the "country   as   well   as   their   own  ���������wages, our word  for it, they will  be  recognized by the owners, audin every  sense of the .word  bo respected by the  people regardless of 'nationality, color  or creed._  Will the Tribune join The  lieview- in making these recommendations ?   An early answer will oblige.  be ample compensation to the country  for this extensive suspension of operations and loss of labor tp_3000_mcn, if  not los3 of the men as well, for if they  cannot get work they-will, have to  leave, we have but little more to,say on  the subject.  Wo do not now,, liny   more than wc  ever   did, advocate the  repeal  of, the  eight-hour law, now that it is   on the  statute books, but we do advocate such  modifications of it as will restore liberty of action  to both   employer and  employe, as is   the case in  most other  countries where they have a statutory  day for  mining   operations.   We ask  why is it that the chief industrial element   of   this   country  should be reduced to  the condition of serfs   while  they have ample protection with  liberty of action in most other colonies of  Great Britain?   Why, ngain   we ask,  should the necessities of our curbstone  politicians become a matter of such  consequence as to effectually stitle our  leading industry,   drive away all contemplated ,advances   of   capital   and  throw the bone and sinew of our industrial people effectually out of employment?   Taese are the questions for  the government and its  henchmen to  answer.  been infinitely less eriticij-m of their  course, and much better feeling today  between the miners and the owners. -  At the outset it was, "The eight-hour  law is here to stay without modification. * * * Eight-hour shifts are in  vogue all over the world and they must  follow here. * * * ?3.50 is as little as  the men can work for,' and they must  have it. * * * The Payne, the Last  Chance, etc., etc., can pay ������3 50, therefore, all the properties must pay it,  whether the others are able to do it or  not. *:*.. * The alien owners >ire making, fortunes out of nothing, therefore,  they must work the mines at.?3 50 or  t*-ey will be tnken out of their hands  and worked by the government. * *.*  Foreign.dictatorship mint be submitted to as it is tho essence of strength  of organization, etc., etc. The mi&-  chievousness of such contentions became apparent to the more moderate  portion.of the community, and retalli-  ntion leading to niuch'warmth of expression followed.  It is a fact, as some of these now in  cooler moments "admit, that capital  and labor must go hand in hand���������the  one must be respected as well i.s the  other���������-and woe ��������� be to those who attempt to antagonize them.  A CHANGE OF MUSIC.  WHY IE IT THUS?  We are evidently in the midst, of a  labor crisis in the Kooteney of which  no, living man   can foretell   the end.  Unasked for,   pettifogging politicians  stole a law through the House, in the  night, or-we believe,   if the facts were  known, on Sunday morning,  which, if  a fact, would invalidate, it, .'to, corral a  few  votes in  the  country, which has  set employers nnd employes nt daggers  drawn for many a day, -deranged  the  entire financial prospects of the country, rendered operations,  where nt all  pursued, precarious and in many cases  stilled  mining altogether. -  ft is   nn-  noiinced   by many of tho   mine malingers of the south country that their  properties have shut down because of  defective machinery.   This, of course,  shuts   out  government  investigations  and visits of commissioners, guaranteeing suspensions,���������uninfluenced by an}'  , one  until the owners' are ready to. re-  sumo operation?.   These in that country, with other suspensions to follow,  will throw probably  nil told  2000 men  out of employment.   It is also a moral 1  certainty that as the larger properties  will not put on full forces.and as many  of the smaller properties ('will not open  at till,with the labor market as it is,the  Slocan will run for many   months  to  come with half labor or less, lessening  the field  by 1,000 in this  district.   If  the  few   votes   the  government  will  make out of their pet enactment will  The Nelson Tribune, theSilvertonian  and the local squib, in speaking of  what is in reality the complete surrender of the machines of the unions, now  say, "There is a great feeling of relief  in all circles at the happy termination  of the labor situation." [A situation  may change, but how it cap terminate  is a mystery.���������Ed. Review.]  "It has taught both sides that a  struggle between capital and labor is a  disaster which should be averted by  any honorable means possible ; 'that  employer and employee each: have  rights which must be respected ; that  each have strength which must be  feared, and that both have dignity that  cannot be''trampled upon without pro-  yoking recriminations."  "It has for one thing shown". both  sides to the dispute, organized labor  and unorganized capital, that they  have both rights that the other is  bound to respect and also that one can  hot very well live without the other."  ':That capital must go hand.inliand  to reach the goal of prosperity/'  We do not know that anything any  of these prints could have said at anytime would have materially influenced  the results; but it is at least certain  that if they had written this way all  through the struggle, there -would have  Let us see   how it  hangs   together  amongst them.   The gulchite says that  by spring  there will probably be 2000  men men working in the mines of the  Slocau.    It is   possible there will be  openings for that many  by that time.  Now it says there are 350 employed at  present (of whom  about  100 are   the  much abused aliens,  there being 3,0.at  the   Enterprise   and   over GO   at   the  Payne, which would leave 250 resident  miners working), n'hd it says  there nre  400 idle.   Then if all the resident miners were   working   there would be G50  employed   against the   2000 required.  The unions say,   "Importations must  stop."   The question then is how are  these men to be got,   and how are the  mines to be worked to their full capacity if the advice, nay, command if you  please, of the unions is to be obeyed?  Advices from   other   quarters   go   to  show there nre   nb more men in the  other mining districts   than there   is  work for, if all the mines were running,  and not enough if the three-shift plan,  for which the government  has opened  an avenue were generally adopted. We  again,ask the question how are all the  mines to be fully worked if the unions  are obeyed,   and; the importation   of  men is to be discontinued ?  WHEN  a.

Even the leaflet up the gulch is laboring hard to show  that there is still  an offer   from the Silver-Lead Mined  Association before the unione and that  the latter aro accepting it, when in its  own columns it, some weeks ago, published   a letter over the signatures of  C. H. Hand and F. A. Wood saying all  the offers of the association were with-  ' drawn, and the matter stood with the  unions as , if  negotiations   had never  ,been commenced.

The men, no doubt, have long  since come to the conclusion that the  persistency   of  the   machines oi   the  unions has occasioned the golden opportunity to pass from their hands and  are now resolved on doing the best they  can for themselves individually.   No  doubt   a number   of  them   who   are  known to be good, reliable men will be  employed at the wages named,   and  that is just how the matter stands.  .���������.,_     ._  ,...._ and  \2j2>'needles  going   through  **    your arms and lingers!  vijijj Bettor  take   a  box   or  fti   ������-"i������   two   of   Milbum's   Heart  and Norve Pills  and  get  .     cured   before  things   become too sorious.

Residents of that province hold boomed  stock in these properties to the value  . of about  $1,500,000, aud   the   closing  down has caused a collapse in values  and, as a consequence, heavy losses to  the holders.   All we have ^to say is it  serves them right, and all others who  dabble in boomed stock.   A man buys  stock   at   a certain figure,   some   incident occurs without showing any increased value iu the mine and up goes  the stock,   and people's cash  after it.  What else do they expect but collapse  after such gambling?   If those people  would only learn enough to put their  piles together, buy  a young property  out and out   and work it themselves,  they would be saved all  this vexation  of spirit begotten of mining   kite-fly-  ���������   EMULSION.

One of the most indispensable qualifications for tho making of a successful general is to bo able to perceive  and| take advantage of'every available  protection, either natural or artificial  in order to afford cover for his men,  or to strengthen .his defences. Reckless charges Ln the face of a heavy rifle  and artillery fire certainly serve to  -   shonv; the  METTLE AND DASHING COURAGE  of the men engaged, but they do not  often win battles. "It is magnificent,  but it is not war." A skilful officer,  '"- with good opportunities for protection, will load his men from cover to  cover in such a manner as to bring  them within a hundred yards of tho  Bnemy, with but very little loss. In  the last rush, of course, men rnusl  drop; but if the leader knows his  business the danger is reduced to a  minimum.  In   the  present   Transvaal   War   we  aro lighting against men whoso country  presents   many   natural   facilities  for protection, and,  whatever may bo  Biiid against them, the, Boors have, hitherto   displayed   great   skill   and   judgment in taking advantage of such protection,   hi the recent action at Alod-  deir Hi ver an hotel and some outlying  farms,   with   (heir  surrounding walls,  were utilised by the Boers as cover for  their   marksmen;   and   it   took   many  hours of severe fighting to drive ihera.  from their position.  The history of ling-land's -wars  abounds in examples of this description. Private residences, farmhouses,  barracks, and sheds have been fortified, and in many cases have stood  lengthened sieges against overwhelming odds.  Conspicuous among these is Ihe siege  of Fort Mary, Ly den burg, which oc-  cuirvd during (he Boar War of 1880-  81. On December 5th, 1880, the ������M(h, ���������'  under Colonel Anstminer, reniuved  headquarters to Preloiia, leaving seventy men at Lydenburg, for the pro-  foe tion of I ho stores. At this time  no one dreamt of war, but on the 23rd  of the sanu; mouth n.-u.-, came that  tlw 94th had been aum-ked at a place  called.  BUONKHORST SPRUIT,  little more'than forty miles from Pin-  tor ia, and more than half of thein killed. Lieutenant Long, who was in command, immediately fortified a couple  of huts which had formed the officers'  quarters, and christened them Fort.  Mary, after Mrs. Long, <who was with j  were stormed and taken in a very  short time; but doubtless there was  mar.v a gallant defence which history  has   been  unable   to   chronicle.  At the first sign of the outbreak,  Sir Hugh Wheeler at Cawnporo, provisioned and fortified, two barracks,  formerly used as hospitals of the European regiment.   He  had with him  450 MEN  and 330 women and children. For many  weeks, in si>ito of l ho furious assaults  of the sepoys, and the terrible privations thoy had to undergo, they hold  their own against the besiegers; but  eventually starvation compelled them  to accept the terms offered by Nana  Sahib. How Nana kept his word, is  known.' to all the world. Of the whole  garrison, four men escaped ; the rest,  including the women and children,  were barbarously  massacred.  In the meantime, Sir Henry Lawrence, at Lucknow, was more fortunate. That which is commonly referred: lb as the " Sicgo of Lucknow," was  in reality the siege of the Residency,  and Therefore armies' within tho limits of this article. The building was  garrisoned with 750 British troops, and  WORKING A SMALL  CANADIAN FARM.  What Can be Produced on Fifty Acres  When Well Worked and Well  Managed.  JOHN MCLEOD IN "FARMING."  My farm consists of 49 1-2 acres here  and 111-2 of new laud lying five miles  east. . .It was ouly broken up last  season so that I will be getting the  'benefit from it from" this on. My  princiiial ciop for feeding being corn,  enables me to winter quite a largo  stock on a small place. 1 grow from  fifteen, to eignteon acres of corn and  husk from 7uo to 1,'XO bushels according to tho yield. Lusl year's corn  dm uof ear as well as usual uwing to  tho drouth, and tho rock being very  close to the surface in somo parts oi  niy faim it affected my corn crop  considerably; but wo filled what 1'  cail a 100-ton silo or 1-1x14x28 feet  dei-p of concrete and husked over 70J  bushels  in   the ear  besides.      My hay  is aa follows: " I have my own scales,  and  when   I buy an  animal  I    weigh  him.   put his weight on my book, and  the price I paid for him.   When I sell  hum I do the same on   the next page,  tho amount  received and the weight.  If I buy meal for them I charge them  with it, so that I can; see how I am  doing with my crop and labor. My  own opinion is that a man cannot farm  and keep his farm ,up, without a good  silo, and with good judgment in buying cattle, and the very same in their  care  and  feeding.  1 am sorry to spy it is next to impossible to buy any well bred stock  in this section.

Although partly relieved by Hiivelook" and. Outram, in  September, it was no! until March of  tho following year that tho siege was  finally  raised.  As a last���������and, in some respects, a  crowning instance, "Waterloo may bo  cited. When Wellington surveyed tho  field of that decisive battle, his experienced eye immediately singled out  two farmhouses as positions which  should be defended. They were called  nougoumont and L't Hay������ Sainte���������(wo  names which, at that time, were probably unknown at a distance of a few  miles, but -which now hold a hallowed  niche in  the rolls of  ENGLISH GLORY.  Napoleon wus not slow to recognize the  importance of these two posts, and  throughout Ihe day his fiercest attacks  were directed against fhc-m. La Haye  Saints was taken between six and sev-  ed in the evening, but at Hougouniiont  the British Guards resisted ali comers.  In vain Napoleon hurled column after rolumn at the position ; amid shot  and slwll and fire J bo terrific conflict  continued all day, and when the  rvl rented hundreds of the Emperor's  host, and bravest lay dead around the  farm.  'Both rommanders recognised the  great importance of this building. Tf  it had fallen there is pvery probability  that the result of Ihe battle would  have been different.

'"��������� The story of how.tho little garrison  repelled the determined assaults, of tho  enemy for eighty-four .days, hardly,  heeds repeating, it .-w.as-.one of- the  most-brilliant episodes of,the war.

The enemy  brought guns against tharn������������������the garrison constructed a cannon out of an  old  Abyssinian   purrip,    arid   answered  .-��������� their shells with home-made solid shot.  .-In-'fiwt, they held their own at every  point; and,when peace was declared  and they emerged from their riddled  fort, the Union Jack floated as bravely  above  it   as  when   they   entered.  The defence of Itorke's Drift, during  the Zulu -campaign,-- although not of  long  duration,   affords an example  of  splendid; heroism!  without parallel. On this occasion two  houses, which had formerly belonged  to a Swedish missionary, were'garrisoned by 139 men of the ,24th regiment,  in command of Lieutenants Chain! ami  Bromhend. Having received new-i that  they were about to be attacked, a.hasty  rampart of menl'ie-bags and biscuit-'.  boxes was thrown up. Little more  than nu houir elapsed after- the.', receipt  of the news, when a body of about  4,000 Zulus appeared, and, with their  characteristic ferocity, hurled themselves against  the defenders.  Flushed with their recent success at:  Isandhlwana, arid deeming repulse by  so small a band impossible, the savages  charged again and again with indom-  ita.be pertinacity; but the. /men of the.  24th held their own magnificently; and  did deadly work with bullet and bay-  . onet.  One of the buildings, which was  used as a hospital,,was eventually carried, and in a few minutes was in  flames; but the wounded-were dragged through a -window, and transfor-  red/to the- other house, where the defence was as vigorous as ever. From  four, in the afternoon all through the  pight the fight' raged, and-at daybreak  the Zulus retreated, leaving hundreds  of their number dead on  tho fieHd.  In such a crisis as the Indian Mutiny, where insurrection started into  life in one night, it is ouly natural  that   dozens  of  case3  occurred   where  the Japanese.' It may, perhaps, be well  to explain briefly what telephotography ��������� .is.. ;>:  The tel j-'or far-photographic action  is not brought about by a telescope  proper, but by,a speciaily designed lens  being used in combination with various  ordinary forms of lenses according to  the work, to.be done. Telephotographio  lenses can he used with any good camera ; btit,.jas great rigidity of apparatus and extremely 'accurate, focusing  are essential, tho inventor'of this lens  has also designed a special form of  cameira particularly useful for naturalists and others wishing to photograph living or inanimate objects at  great distunces. ������  Its ad vantages for military purposes  are great, and particularly in Italy,  ru-iich, work has been done on this direction. An ide.L of its value' will be  given, by the. photographs printed. It  will be seen that it is possible to take  ,-iccuirate pictures, clearly showing the  enemy's xjosifion, numbers, the character bf the defenses, position of guns,  etc., and this shoulld be noted, at. a  distance, of two or three miles if the  at.mosph'.'ire and other circumstances  are  favorable. - .  |     i ,  li"or balloon work it is especially suitable, as drawing a plan anything like  accurate in a swaying balloon is beyond the power of the cleverest  draughtsman, while even the best  truined eyes crumot retain the exact  'details of a position hastily viewed: In  addition, (be camera'.-will often reveal  points quite overlooked, by the eye,  a. good instance of which was seen the  other day. A cineraajtographe view had  been taken of the rapids at. Niagara;  when, in the evening this was being  thrown onto a screen, the spectators  were surprised to see a body being  tossed' about in the. -waters, which had  not been noticed-at the'-time, of taking the photograph. On a subsequent  search being made, the body was duly  found.

MOUNTAIN  ECHOES.  The suit of Alexander vs. K. & S. R'y  Co. ia being settled.  The Coontown 400 played here to a  crowded house on Wednesday night.  It appears to be coming at last. Mr.  Prentice, a member of the Semlin-Cot-  ton party, is introducing a bill to repeal  the eight-hour law.  u  All along the miners used 10 say the  trouble in the Slocan was a lock-out.  If that hi - the case how can they now  declare ''the strike off?"  The Rev. J. A. Ferguson occupied  the pulpit of the Methodist church  Sunday morning last, giving a short  but interesting discourse.  Even in  British Columbia there are  many   newspaper men ready to   offer  advice   and   instruction   to   Generals  . Buller and Roberts in South Africa.  An order has come from the government that all school children, who have  not a.reiui} been, must be vaccinated  before the loth of March or drop out  of school.  The McMillan vs. Satidiltinds suit  arising out of the estate of Crawford &  McMillan has been adjourned for witnesses, llicre are three or four defendants, creditors.  The town has put on a livelier appearance the past week, many new  laces are seen on our streets and more  coming in by almost every train.  There are miners from all corners  looking for work.  There is an opportunity for some one  of-our good, reliable, pushing citizens  to secure the agency of the Imperial  Lite Assurance Company by applying  to the provincial manager, J. W. W.  Stewart, at Vancouver.  Some of the Slocan prints profess to  know all about the labor situation now.  We advise them that they will know  more about it three months hence; but  there is no use in giving advice to  those who know it all.  Apparently the gulchite does not  know it was announced in its own columns that the "mine owners' association" had withdrawn all compromise  offers, us last week it said the miners  had accepted these offers.  The British have now more than recovered all their reverses in South  Africa, and relieved Kimberly and  Ladysniith. Roberts will now lay out  one grand procession, which, though it  may have small reverses, will not stop  until Krugerism is silenced forever in  the land ot the Boers. '  Red Paddy has been overtaken by  some kind of a niental trouble that  puzzles the doctors. He eats well,  sleeps well, but shows signs of mental  delects that are inexplicable. At times  he can talk, , aud again he becomes  speechless, but he is always able to  ���������write, and when speechless he writes,  he can talk but is unable to articulate.  Bushels of Money���������Thrown away by  women annually in the purchase of  cosmetics, lotions and powders, none of  which ever accomplish their object.  Beauly depends on healthy blood and  good digestion, such as Karl's Clover  . Root Tea guarantees you for 25 cts. and  50 cts. per package. Take it and we  guarantee your complexion. Sold by  McQueen the Druggist.  Mr. Arthur Nichols, who went up to  work at the Ivanhoe but a few days  before, met with, a bad accident on  Tuesday. By some means a piece of  rock fell on his leg and so bruised his  ankle that he was compelled -.to-come  down to the hospital. No bones are  broken.and it is hoped lie will riotJong  remain laid up. About a year ago he  got an arm badly smashed by a falling  tree.   .-,,-'  ,. Is This Plain Enough ?���������If you have  a nagging cough and are losing flesh,  go to a drug store and get" a bottle of  Shiloh's Consumption Cure. Take two-  thirds of it, and then, if you are not  benefitted, return the bottle! to the  druggist, and he will return your  money. Isn't that fair? No one could  asx more. 25c, 50c. and $1.00 a bottle.  Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  We were much naista.ken last weeK  in saying that Archie McDonald's leg  was still in bad shape. We are advised he has made as much headway  in the time as he possibly could, as his  fracture was at the .time one of the  worot, and he is a very cautious man.  He, therefore, does not yet know that  his recovery is as far advanced as it  really is. He will soon be able to go  around without sticks.  The government is introducing a redistribution measure that will, with  some additions, create two constituencies out of the present Slocan,1 making a centre each of Kaslo and Sundbn.  This will improve the chances of all  who are ambitious, and no doubt inspire fond dreams in the minds of  many who are just as fit for the proper  duties of a parliamentary representative as they are to manage the Boer,  war.  Worse Than War.���������Hundreds are  killed in war, but hundreds of thou-ji  sands are killed by consumption.'1  There would be no deaths at all caused  by this terrible disease, ii people could  be made to understand that Shiloh's  Cough and Consumption Cure is a sure  remedy if taken in the early stages.  25ots., 50cts. and $1.00 a bottle. Druggists will refund the money if a cure is  not effected. Sold at McQueen's Drug I  Store. '     '  The K. ofP's will parade'to the  Methodist church Sunday evening for  service.  Lowry's prayers hav ��������� at length been  answered. Providence has removed  the C. P. R. station at New Denver  siding.  It is reported that Cronjo is captured.  As he is surrounded his capture is  in any event but a matter'of time.  His capture will break the back of the  war, as he is one of the best Bo'or generals.  ' As a result of their i ictories in Rossland, we understand the junior hockey  boys have in store several oyster suppers from their admiring lady friends  in the city.  Dancing seems to be the popular  past aims in S.mdon this season, judging from the large attendance usually  had at the many events so fur given.  We presume Lent may call a slight halt  to the gaiety of our youth.  Folliott & McMillan are improving  the slack time in their trade by manufacturing Bhingles at their planing  mill. They will no doubt save much  to themselves in the coming season's  building operations in this way besides  making work for a limited number of  hands.  The annual report of the Bank of  B. C. is to hand from the directors in  England. It shows a profit for the  year of ������100,200, declaring a dividend  of 5 per cent., leaving $25,000 to rest  account. Besides S branches in B. C.  it has one in S.tn Francisco and one in  Portland.  A Goon Thing.���������Our great grandmothers' garrets contained the same  herbs of all healing found in Karl's  Clover Root Tea. They gave our ancestors strength, kept the blood pure,  and will do the same for you if you say  so. Price 25 cts. and 50 cts. Sold by  McQueen, the Druggist.  The Club dance held Thursday evening in Virginia hall was beyond tho  expectations of even the most sanguine  pusher in point of attendance, all other  details being equally satisfactory.- The  athletic club will very likely soon be  organized, having the encouragement  of the citizens.
