The _ School'  Children   Entertained  Parents and Others Friday.   /  A very interesting time was spent  in the afternoon of Friday week nt tho  closing exercises of lho Sandon public  school. Quite a number of parents  and friends wore present. Revs. Ole-  liuul mid Sanford were among tiie visitors. The school room -was nicely  decorated by.the children with evergreens nnd wild ilowcrs. A good number of pupils were present though,  several were absent through sickness  and other causes.  Ten minute lessons were conducted  by tiie teachers in classes ol both divisions. Miss Skinner conducted lessons in phonics, mental Arithmetic  and writing-in the classes of her department ; 'iind Mr. Birrou taught his  classes in reading, spelling hibtory and  geography. Kev. A. M. banlord lieai-d  tlio Fntl) class in geography. The exercises were interspersed with recitations and choruses by ihe pupils.  lie vs. Oleland ami Saniord addressed  a low words ol congratulation and encouragement to scholars and teachers,  and expressed thoniseives as well  - pleased wilh the progress shown by  the classes.  Mrs. (Kev.) Sanford  then  presented  tlie Honor Bolls as loilows :  First Division���������  Ada.McDougali, for Proficiency.  Alice Trenory, lor Deportment.

The people all expressed thems0p,,(,s  as well pleased with the progress shown  by tho pupils.  Belore closing, Mr. Barron tlmnked  the visitors lor the encouragement  given by their presence, and said he  hoped tnat everything would be in  lnuch better shape next y(,.lr. j-j_e  h0W0d tliat a.number of prizes would  be oilcreu at next examination and  said that it wm expected^ a second dc-  paitnieiVu" would be built during vacation.  Tlie pupils then sang ���������The LimP-of  thc Maple" and the programme closed  with ''God Save the Queen."  thc other side of the Atlantic. What  he states about mining is of interest  here.  Captain Adams said that there did  not seem to be a disposition "in England to have much to do with undeveloped initios, although there was no  trouble about regularly developed  mines. Captain Adams is the founder  of Midway, now one of the leading localities of the Boundary district. Ho  located Midway in 1892. realising then  that it would be an important centre  in the near future, being Incited at the  junction of the Kettle river and Boundary creek, as well as the nieetiii'.r of  the mountain passes. Midway will no  doubt bo the sifo of a smelter, and  Captain Adams'believes in allowing in  as many railways as arc prepared to  build.  He also says that Mr. Edward Jacobs  has ably handled the affairs ol thc  company as local agent. Messrs. J, T.  Piggolt, E. Kirk Green and J. Withell,  have recently paid a visit to Midway,  and arc well satisfied at the outlook.  Captain Adams still holds a controlling  interest, and his son, Mr. Walter C.  Adams, who has just returned from  England, is now in this country to look  after Lhe company's mining interests  at Midway, Sandon and elsewhere.

On account  of our lack of the varied lenoiiiees of the surroundings of eastern cities wc cannot show you many of the institutions some of them possess, but merely r/hat  the requirements of a mining cunp have created in five short years. As you  will notice, however, the place possesses good Flares and hotels, churches and  sch ool houses, industrial institutions in variety, an efficient electric light ������yv  tem, as good a water system as can be found in the country yielding an ample  supply of the purest of water for domestic purposes and fir? protection ; tiro  concentrators within tne city, two more projected, and the fifth in operation  hard by, with complete, trams and all other necessary conveying appliances,  *nd it h..s the termini of two railway systems.  It is a matter of regret tnat more lime is not-at your command to enable  you personally to secure fuller information than we can convey in one abort  'address, on the miner.il surroundings that we are confident will yet make Sandon a still more important and influential mining centre.  We take it that .while the rneniherg of your party, in this your first visit to  thii portion of the Province, arc mainly "on pleasure bent," like all true sons  and daughters of the "fourth estate," you are desirous of gathering all the information you can, in notes by the way, of the importance of all districts of  thiH great Dominion, of which we all have great reason to be proud. We,  therefore, be-; to advise you that all you see and learn of this camp and itn mir-  rounding* are but tlie creation and development of a few short years ; for, although tne Slocan Star mine'was located m October 1S01, and the Payne���������Ihe  oldest in the camp���������a lew months previous, but little in tho way of de.'.op-  nient was done until tlie advent of tlie railways in 1895, because of the coit of  transport irom Kootenay and Arrow lakes by pack train And wagon till then.  We cannot eren yet show you the developed mines of older countries, but we  can output** and profits, ot these we have that are a marvel to all who become  familiar with them.   F������r instance last year we shipped from the two stations  in this city 22,373;! tons of ore at an average gross value of $100 per tan  or ?>:.',-  237,850; from Throe Forks four miles distant, 6,049  tons worth ������604,900; from  McGuigan four miles east 1,000 tons worth $100,000, from   Whitewater   mines,  5 to 10 miles distant 2,10!) tons valued at AilU.OOO, and from Slocan Lake points  1,432 tons valued at $143,300, ur a. total value, of 03,296,350 drawn from   a circle  20 miles in diameter with Sandon as a centre.   To the present these properties  havo declared dividends to the value of $3,472,000.   This exportation was   very  nearly one-third of the whole of the'Provinee of British   Columbia,   and   theso  dividends are quite three times the total oi the gold properties of Kossland  put  together.   For a more concise repiesentation of the exports of tlio locality   we  may say those of the whole Dominion are $33 per head; thoseof British Columbia ������S0 per head, and those ol the Slocan $750 per head.    For the better in for  mation of the association Ave append the shipments and dividends  referred   to  above in detail.      .  r,    - .   -., ,, L        ,.������     r ���������        ii     ,   ii    r    -i .

Byron and partner, of Silver-  ton, h .ve bought a two-third interest  in the A. E. claim.  Toe Heather Bell company put a'  few more men to work last Monday on  their promising property.  Though there are but few men at the  mines considerable provisions aud supplies are being packed up.  The Hillside, at Whitewater, is  working a small force of men, and so  is the Humbler at McGuigan.  The Payne employs 43 men these  lim -s, sonic at thc bunk house and tho  others mostly on surface- work.  Mr. Allan Slubijs has gone down to  Slocan City with two men to do assessment work on the 1������. ft. group, near  there, owned by hinisoli and father.  There is a good showing on the property.  The Nelson Tribune s.iys that the  men working there on contract are  making more than the union scale of  wages, and as a -"onsequence the mines  are likely to adopt the ������3.50 for eight  hours.  ;uls I  us many men are not require! in the silver-lead  mines :i������   in   the granite 1  for equal results ; hut about 1.000 men being employed i" the Slocm.  The comparatively small   pay rolls militate  against the growth  of large  cities through swelling the pockets ol the property holders.  In this connection we further de-sire to imprest th** fact the camp is   but   in  its ini-tncy���������year by year prospects are being developed into mine* thut rival  our bebt producing properties, and many of tiiese prospects, in their initial  stages, can he purchased for insignificant sunu of money. We, therelore, confidently believe, that while manj other districts of the Province have their desirable and wealthy properties, tlie Slocan, so far as development has gOiic, ir  the banner field fur investment.  In conclusion we triibt that jour trip to the Province mav- be one of utility  and pleasure, ami tnat the inloinialion j-ou have gathered iu your dftilj' observations may be by you all turned to good account in aiding in the development of our Province that, must yet tieconio a prominent factor in promoting  lhe substantial interests and latent resources ot our gre.it Canadian Kmpire.  when they bougnt this property.  The output of Ihe Slocun's ores averaged up last year 125 oz. of silver and  45 per cent lead, winch, at present values, gives ������113 25 per ton.

A few miles' walk along bald crest  of the divide brings one into the forks  of ''Rabbit" Creek, some distance from  its head. Five miles more in the thick  spruce-liinborod valley, a large tributary puts in on the left-hand side.  Edges of rook extending from the  hill-sides��������� show' the rook formation of  the oountry. The stream winds over  a bed muck, in which, the only stones  or rocks are those that have tumbled  down from the crumbling ledges. Bedrock, the solid bottom of the creek, is  ho one knows how .'far: down below  this muck.  crushed, a stick of dynamite, intended  for the ice,,destroyed the steamer.  Among tie first to hoar of tho strike  were four' men who came from above  ���������Dan McGilvruy,. Dave McKay, Dave  Edwards and Harry Waugh���������and  thoy  looated Nos. 3, 14, 15 and 10 below Discovery.   These men did the, first sluicing that was done, on  the creek,  and  they ma'de the first clean-up with, five  boxes set.     The  figures    are  lacking  for their  first .shovelling,  but on .(he  second  they  cleaued  up  thirteen  and  a   hall   ounces  of gold,  ������329.50,   being  five hours'  work of ono  man shovelling    The  gold   varied  from  the'size  of pin-heads   to    nuggets,   one  of  $12  being found.   Now the Klondike magnifier began his work with (his curious  result,  that   the  lies  of  to-day    wore  surpassed by  the truth  of to-morrow,  until it came, to be accepted that, "You  can't   tell    no.  lies   about   Klondike."  M'cGilvray' and   the  rest  had  perhaps  fifteen hundred dollars, surety a largo  sum in that country and for tho time  they had worked.   La due weighed tho  gold, and as he came out of tho store  he'said    to   some    assembled miners,  "How's that for two and a half days'  shovelling 'in���������������f,008?"     Next  time  it  was an even  S-UOJ, TWO DAYS' SHOVELLING  Th  mini  were a pretty good class of men in the  lower country, and most of them could  get credit.   A man' would come into a  saloon, and all he'd have would be one  drink or one: dance.,     You'd; never see  them asking up three or four at once  to  drink.      Why,    there    weren't  but  lliree men in Forty Mile that could'afford to get drunk.     Thoy did nothing  all winter but sit around where it was  warm, playing    podro,    solitaire,    and  easiuo.       Word   came    to   Forty Mile  that Louis Rhodes had two men working fur him, and was getting good pay.  "That's a lie," says ouo    man,  "Louis  Rhodesl when was he able to hiro two  men?" Next    word    eame    down    that  Ben Wall    was getting    two-bit    dirt  "HjIII ' says Nigger Jim; "I've known  Ben Wall those ten years, and he's the  all-firedest liar in lho  Yukon."  When  they  heard  that Berry    was    getting  one dollar to tho pau,    they    laughed.  Klondike was a bunco���������nothing but, a  bunco." These'words   were    spoken in  what  the miners call "josh," but they  were true, nevertheless.  Circle City, 230 miles farther away  than Forty Mile, did, not get the 'news  so soon. The first report that reached Circle was of a discovery on Klondike���������an ounce to the "shovel," shovel  ling off the surface  have been common property six months i TTnTynjI  before. the excitement outside is hard jfj.

One  scarcely  knows  possible for ������any one  to    escape    who  . writes or speaks in the midst of affairs  About half  a  mile  below  the  largo j concerning any specific find.     A man  tributary just    mentioned    the  party  stopped to rest.   They had been panning here  and  there.   Carmack  dropped off to sleep, it is said.   Skookuim  Jim) taking the pan, went to the rim,  of tho  creek, at the foot  of an    old  birch-tree,    and filled it    with    dirt.  .Washing it in the creek, he  FOUND     A'   LARGE    SHOWING  OF GOLD.  Right under the grass-roots, Jim said,  ho found from ten cents to one dollar  to  tho: pan.   In  a little  while,  it  Is said,  they filled    a shnt-gun  cartridge with coarse gold.   The strangest  with a town site must also be allowed  a great deal of latitude in such matters'. But soon the joke was on the  other side, Men who were on the spot  would not believe anything thoy heard.  Two of the men working on Indian  River, came down, heard of the strike.  Says one to his partner, "Shall we go  up and stako?" Replied ��������� the other,  "Why, I wouldn't go across the rivet-  on that old Siwash's word," meaning  Ca rmnck. Tney wish now they had,  but they : went on down to Forty  Mile.  There were a few old-timers in tho  procession up from Forty Mile. Thoy  knew all about Klohdkie. It was nothing but a moose pasture. It was  not like some other pinee where they  ,    .   ., .        .. ,  ,        I had seen gold, and so there could be  thing was that this gold was not from , none^ne-re.     They    climbed tho hills  ���������I  the creek-bed jiropor, but had slid  down from an ancient creek-bed on'  the "bench," or hill-side, diggings that  were unknown and not discovered until a- year later. Carmack staked off  Discovery claim for himself, and fivo  hundred feet above and below for his  two Indian companions,; Skookum Jim  taking No. 1 above Discovery, and .Cui-  tus Charlie, No. 1 below. Tbe date of  this is variously giyen as thelu'th aud  17th of August.  After staking!' they rushed off for  Forty Mile, or rather Fort Cudahy,  established by the North-American  Transportation and Trading' Company  oh the opposite side of Forty Milo  Creek. The recorder, or acting gold  commissioner, was, here in the pex-son  of Inspector -Constantino of the detachment of North-W'esl Mounted  Police. The creek was horned Bonanza.  Carmack's story of ������'2:50 to the pan  was not  believed,  though it was    not  :   doubted that  he had found gold.'    A  stampede   followed.       Drunken   men  were thrown  into  boats.     1 knew of-  one man who was tied and made to.go  ''���������'.'    along.   But there  was no excitement  beyond  what   atteuds  a., stampede ..for  locations on any creek on which gold  , has been found.   It differed in no respect, apparently,  troiii snores Oj. other  .stampedes.   'There are always poisons  'about  a  mmiiig, camp  reaUj   'to, start  ..on. a  stampede  sinipiy - as ' a    chance,  whether    good    pruspe.cts   have    been  found or not.   Whole creeks have been  -  Btaked out  on   the    beiief  that    gold,  would    subsequently    be    found.     So  7    the  excitement  of  this earlier    stage  was of small significance.   It was that  of the professional  stampeder,  so    to  ���������3peak���������rounders    about    the    saloons,  Borne new arrivals, but few old minors,  the  latter    being    still  in    the    diggings up the creek.,. ���������  The first  to arrive  at  the  scene of |  the hew discovery began staking down  stream.   That'also  Was a stampeder's  justom.   The chances were considered  better  there   than    above.      It  is  all  nonsense the  talk one    has begun to  hear of persons, who would have one  believe '"-:"' '  'GOT   IN ON    CHOICE    LOCATIONS"  ,    by reason of their superior foresight.  It was blind luck.   The staking'went  on down stream for six miles, ami than  began above,  continued  for    seven or  eight miles  up stro.ni, before  the side  gulches were thought of seriously.  Ladue,   who    hud   started    for    ihe  mouth of the Klondike behind Hender-  .   son, was among the first to reach the  heart of tho strike.   Ladue staked the  town site  on a  broad   flat,  below  the  mouth of the Klondike.   There already  Was one  building  there���������a fish-drying  , shed  belonging  to Fritz  Kioto.   Then  Ladue    started  for    Forty  Mile,   ,but  meeting a man who wanted some lumber, he sent his application by another  party,  returned   to  the  mill   at  Sixty  Mile, and soon after returned  to  the  mouth    of    the  Klondike'   with  nails,]  spikes and  lumber, built'a warehouse  of  lumber  just  opposite    the present  'Alaska Commercial   Company's  warehouse, 22 by 40 feet, and built a cabin  :���������the first  in Dawson���������the name giv-  'en the new town in honor o������ the Canadian geologist.  -It was torn down last  winter on    account of    being in    the  middle    of    the    front    street.      The  Alaska Commercial  Company steamer  Arctio having arrived at' Forty  Mile,  bound for Fort Selkirk, hurried on to  'the hew town, arriving in September.  The   ice   was ' running ; in   the   river.  After discharging, she hurried back to  Forty Mile, but was frozen in before  she could  be  placed in  a safe place,  This, in miners'  ,     ,���������  , -,-,     , ,. ,     , ,    [parlance,    means    that one    man  had  he, liability  to exaggera ion about a \LahovBUe& ilUo lhe s.uiceboxes yold  to  in.ng camp is so great that it is im- | lhe value o������ Qne ounc&_8evon<oen dol-  lars���������per day.     The next    news    was  when  Sam Bartlett came    down  with  a raft of logs which ho  had failed ito  land at Forty Mile.   -Bartlett said-it  was a "bilk;" that .Too Ladue was only  trying to get men up to his town site  ���������he had stopped there, but would not  stake.     The next news came to Oscar  Ashby  from a friend, about the middle  of November.     The    river    was    then  closed, and the,letter came down over  the ice. There were about seventy-five  men in Oscar's saloon when tho letter  was read.     It was somewhat    to    this  effect, telling Ashby    to buy    ai*?-   the  property he could on Klondike, it   did  not   make   any . difference    what,  the  prices were: "This is one of the  RICHEST STRIKES IN THE WORLD.  ft is a world-beater.   I can't tell how  much gold we are) getting to tho pan.  I never saw or heard, of    the ; like ,of  such a thing in my  life.   I myself saw  ������150 panned out of one pan ofttirt. and  I think   they are    getting as high    as  ������1COO."     The crowd in  tho saloon had  a big   laugh, and   thought so little of  it that they never spoke    of it   again.  "IL  disgusted ihem that men  were so  crazy as to write  Lhat way," to (quote  the  words of one    who    was  present.  Soon   after another letter  came.   This  time it was    to    Harry    Spencer    and  whether to attribute the world's acute  .Uiack of insanity to the  ���������SIGHT-'CUT THE GOLD DISPLAYED  in th������ windows of San Francisco and  ���������ieultle or to the adroit manipula-  .ion of the story of the miner's arrival  by certain sensational newspapers���������in  mocase to booni the Alaska outfitting business, in the other aa the result of Ihe rivalry of New York and  .^au Francisco newspapers.  But, where, .during tho time that  Bonanza aud El Dorado7were being  staked, were Bob Henderson and Lis  partners ? They wore, shovelling and  digging away on their claims on Gold  liottom. Henderson had also been upon another fork of tho stream aud  made another discovery, one panful  showing as high as thirty-five cents  to the pan.  After Bonanza was staked into the  8D'b above and El Dorado to 33��������� or  over three utiles���������a party of miners,  including George Wilson and James  MoNainee, came over tho divide to  Gold Bottom.  Henderson asked them where they  were from. Tliey replied, "Bonanza  Creek."  Henderson says that he did not want  to display his ignorance. He had  never heard of "Bonanza" Creek. At  leu'-lli ho asked, where Bonanza:Creek  was>.     They pointed, over the hill.,  "'Rabbit' Creek J What have you  got there ?"  MADE  HAPPY,  MRS. TUCKER, OF NIAGARA FALLS,  TELLS'WHAT DID IT.

This was  the condition of Miss Myrtle Tuck������r  for nearly a year, and the Review  learning  that    she had been  wohder-  tho residence of Mr. Edwin  Tucker, of the village of Niagara Falls.  Mrs. Tucker received us very cordially,  on ascertaining the object of our visit.  As nearly as passible these are her  exact words in speaking of her daughter's case:���������"My daughter Myrtle is in  her fifteenth year. About a year ago  alarming symptoms of St.Viius' danoa  made their appearanco, but, for  time;   we   did not   know wha  and walked'along the'divide until, they  could look down into the valley of  Bonanza. .Here, many of them stop7  pod and threwoup their hands in disgust.

He surveyed  the .'.lU'Ospect, and as he  turned  We have the blggost thing in the  world."  "Who found it?"  "McCormick."  It is said Henderson threw down his  shovel and went and sat on the'bank,  so sick at heart that it_was some time  before he could spealr.  (To Be Continued.)  to  away  remarked,   "f leave  it    to    the I Frank Densmoro, from a    party    with  Swedes."     Tho Swedes"were supposed | whom    they,   wero    well    acquainted.  Donsmore at onco fitted out    a      doc:  BEST    WAY TO 'PACK'A TRUNK.  It is not tho wearing of clothing that  fells so sadly as the manner, in which  it is kept. Clothing all moist and dusty  tossed into a dark closet,' trunk or  drawer can never' bo nice again, and  its appearance proclaims the character  of the wuarcr more  than tho purse.  A   garment aired,  dusted   and   put  to be" willing to work the poorest  ground. Another, or it may'.have been  tho same, is said to have written on  the stakes of 21, uot the usual, "I  claim," etc, but, "This moose pasture-  is, reserved for the Swedes and C'heec-  hahkoes," new-comers. Louis Rhodes  staked it right afterwards. When he  had written his name, he said to his  companions, being ashamed of .staking  in such a place, that he "would out  his name off for two" bits," -twenty-five  cents. Froui that claim the; next summer he took out  FORTY-FOUR    THOUSAND   AND  ODD DOLLARS.  Bui all thatand much more was hidden in the future. A Klondike claim  was not considered worth anything.  Oue-half interest in one of the richest  Ft Dorado claims was sold for a sack  of flour. A few thousand dollars  could have bought up tho creeik from  end to end.  Some who  had provisions    remained  to prospect,  others returned to Forty  Mile, just as  the, miners were  beginning    to   pome,   in     from    the    diggings, to learn for the first time of a  strike on Klondike.   Among these was  a Swede of the name of Charlie Anderson.   Anderson must have heard something favorable, about  the    prospects.  A person ax^proached him,    and   said,  "Charlie,  don't   you    want   to   buy    a  claim on Klondike?"   "I don't care if  1 do.   How much do you,want ?",   "I'll  lei yot: have 29 on El Dorado for ������8L0."  "I'll  take  it," replied    Anderson, and  weighed out'    the    dust.      The enterprising salesman went about boasting  how he had played Charlie for.a "suckr  ei-," only he wanted some one to kick  him for not having asked him ������l,20O.  He believed he could have got it just  as easily as he did the ������������00.   The man  who sold the claim was in>Dawson last  winter, and had he caret! he could have  watched Charlie Andersm getting out  his     - '    ���������   :; ::.���������������������������  THiRD ONE  HUNDRED THOUSAND  DOLLA..S,  with  the  probability  of    at  least 'another  hundred  thuusaud  to  come  out  of  ground  yet   uuworked.

Said   the hue-  cuiiiir:    "I v;-. Cyiue a good way. What  you are  doing  is  illegal,  and I want  a claim and mean to nave une."     The  in.ir.   who    was staking    told  him  ho  would  like   to  have  his friends    near  hiin, and offered him stakes oij 15 El  Dorado, if that would do as well.     It  was accepted.    Nothing  has yet    been  found on Adams.  ���������How was the   news of   the Klondike  discovery received on the lower river?  Forty Mile, being  the seat of tho recorder, was of course the, first to hear  all the reports and rumors.     This can  best: be told in tho   words of one'   who  was  there in Forty Mile  town at the  time.      "Nobody believed any  of    the  first reports about gold on  the Klondike.      You see, there never  was any  money in the   lower    country. A man  would como in after a hard summer's  work with a poke, a poke  is  a    gold-  sack, that a man would be ashamed of  here    in    Dawson. ;   They    owed    tho  stores for their last year's outfit, and  they'd pay for that, and get credit on  next year's   outfit.     The    stores    had  rather have it that way than not. .They  wero sure a man would not leave the  team and went up.     After he got up  he w'rote back to Spencer, relating the  whole particulars.      lie repeated    tho  words of tho others��������� namely,    that he  really could not  tell  what  they were  finding: it was'immensi'ly rich; he  had  never   seen   anything   like    it.     Now  Spencer and Denimum-    had    large interests in    Circle City,    so    lho    men  knew it could,  be    no lie; /they   were  compelled  to bellove it.      The  wildest  stampede resulted.     Every    dog    thai  could  be  bought,    begged,    or    stolen  was pressed into.service, and those who  could    not gel    dogs    started hauling  thc-ir own slods, men and even women,  until  in    two weeks    there    we're not  twenty  people left  in  Circle,   and    of  those part were cripple's and could not  travel:.    In a short  while   there were  not even that number left,   a    report  giving the actual number as two men  and one woman.

We made a trip to Buffalo last January  and a specialist    was    consulted,  who recommended that Myrtle bo shut  up in a d ark room for three months,  allowing no one to'see her or speak to  her but the nurse. - In fact the doctor  insisted upon her being sent to one ol  the   city   hospitals.     Arsenic was one  of  the   specifics  used;  it    helped    to  quiet for a  time,  but  no    permanent  relief was ol)tainod7    After our return  from  Buffalo,  my son   urged me    to  try    Dr.    .Williams'    Pink    Pills    for  Myrtle.      lie   said   he    was   sure    it  would   do her   good   as.it   had   cured  'his. boy of a similar cpmfilainfc.'

The Klondike,  or rather  that  spot  of  it .where  the first big finds were made, was undeniably    richer    than    anything    yet  discovered in   the  lower country.  But  slill another fact contributed to  ,. the  completeness of ihe   stampede, namely,   ihat water    was    troubling    them  badly that summer in   tho Birch Creek  district.      There    were    between  three  hundred   and   four   hundred,   miners  about Circle City, soma of whom were  as far back as eighty miles    distant, wn  the head of Birch    Crook.   In August  as soon as they heard of the; Klondike  strike,  (hey packed  (heir goods   back,  sold them for what (hey would bring,  bought  dogs, and    started    for  Klondike,  not a few arriving  wilh  enough  money to buy in at once.   In j he whole  country���������Birch,     Miil*r,     uiid    Forty  Mile Creek���������there were nor   less  than  fifteen hundred people.  The miners built   their cabins,  and,  when  the    water  in  the   creeks  was  frozen, drifting began on all but those  claims that the owners did not care to  work,  or preferred  working  the  next  summer.     Though shallow enough in  many    places for  summer    work,  the  diggings  began  to prove  deeper  than  those in the lower country.  '   The   first mail   that   went  out   carried the news to friends and relatives,  advising   them  that   a big  strike   had  been made.   It reached  them  in  January and February, and they started.  Crossing the pass m spring, they came  down on the high .water in June, and  though unablo to get in on the main  creeks,    many  of    Lhern  located  over  creeks that are showing up rich.

'It is strange to me," says a thoughtful woman, "that people'do'not better,  understand and take more advantage of  the influence1 of dress. It has an influence eutirel3' out of proportion to  its  value    and  is  stronger  in  proportion  lhan any other one thing I know.      1  have seen beauty, wit and intellect apparently subjugated by a woman who  was well dressed and possessed the confidence that a cood eowu will give. 1  know one naturally timid woman who  I has'   what may  be  called  a distingue  bearing,  and she  attributed  it  all   to  the good clothes she wears.

With the vision  of   the woman   in   the mirror in     her  mind's eye she plays.the part of that  woman, and is equal to anything, even  an ufter-nobn toast, though she laughs  to herself when people praise her for  her powers of  self-control  and  great  confidence.

For, the past  three months oilicers of tliat body had.  b'een. corresponding   with   prominent  inenhere   asking   them   to make arrangements lb receive  tlie association  and give  llie. members thereof an in-  '.sight into  the wordings of the mines  and the'mineral resources of tho vicinity.   ..When eventually they sent out  their programmes, announcing Sandon  - as one pf . their objective points,  and  ������������������." asking our-pepple by wire to make arrangements ,to receive thorn, our.business people, ��������� the   hiinc   owners,, city  council,  the'- brass���������'.' hand ��������� an'il '��������� others  cheerfully responded' and , by subscriptions, expenditure of time,   ote.'eom-  'plefed   arrangements  to give thorn a  . litting. reception.'Even the ladies bold  two or three meetings  and completed  plans . to properly entertain . the ladies  of ,tbe visiting party.   By  wire ,their  visit was postponed a day, and Iwenly-  ;; four hours before the .final-time set for  the visit, a 'message came from Vim-  ��������� couvcr to thoeffect'fcnat on account of  cbangesin tiie   railway service,  they  could not.  visit Sandon at all.:   So.far  as the expression  could cover the gap  /there was.ofcourse, the usual regrets.  .'The C.PJt. hasibeeu built largely by  Canadian money, for tbe advancement  'of Canadian interests, and whatever  advantages are expected to accrue from  press association visits should come to,  Canada sis a preference.  Nearly ��������� one-third   of   the   mineral  'output   of    the    province,,  including  coke and coal, comes from   tlie Slocnn  ". proper, or a strip of country "some 25  ..miles by 15,   and... when. a. Canadian  press association, in ma-king a tour of  the cbuntrj ,' cannot spare proper time  '���������after announcing their -intention - of.  ,so doing���������rto visit thia locality, there,  jnust be something wrong with inquisitive anatomy.  If there is wisdom in giving public  ijnoncy to construct a railway to enable  a certain, class of people, to visit outside counlrios for personal pleasure,  the courtesy in common fairness ought  to be extended to all other classes of  the people as well. If, however, it is  extended to the press exclusively, that  tho country may , get some returns  from thc visits, it would not be out of  place'in the future, if the O.P.K. would  see to it that the desired returns aie  properly obtained.   '  On Tuesday, after tho foregoing  scolding was put in type, Mayor.Pitts  received' a telegram from President  Scott saying the association 7 would  reach here at 11-a.m.' Wednesday and  remain 8i hpurs. There was nothing  for it then but to leave them'quietly  alone or rush up,something in a hurry.  On-. Tuesday night, in committee the  citizens decided to treat ihem to a,  good application of brass band, a lunch  and an address. Abont"10:40 the Iv. &  S. steamed in bringing'some 00 of the  number. After a formal greeting the  railway people took them,with a good-,  ly number of Sandonites, to.Cody and  brought them back to Sandon. The  lunch over, the party feasted their  eyes on Sandoii ore at Mr. Harris's  office and then repaired to Virginia  hall, where the address, in'other columns of lliis issue, was read by Mr.  CliU'e, after His Worship's formal welcome and introduction. Tins was replied to by President Scott, Regina,and  Messrs. Bell and Mclntyre, of Port  Arthur and Winnipeg respectively.  A display- of our firemen's agility and  the force of our water system exhausted all the lime at their disposal.

As we intiinatdd above they should  have taken less time at Spokane and  more at Sandon,' as many of their number freely acknowledged when they  got an insight into the value of our  surroundings.

There are; eight claims,, im the -Luke
Shore group,   located on   Lake Moyie,
which is an idea) situation for a mine.
7The veins are ������ from; 4'"to. 13 feet :in
width, the vein-filling being of quartz
;ahdhighly argentil'elous galena.' Ship-,
, ments have been made'froik the property and net'-over ��000 to,the carload
above all expenses. The Crow's Nest'
railway, which will be the mainline
of thc G.P.R., passes over the:property
and within TOO feet,of the proposed
power plant. No better situation for a
large mine could,exist, there being unlimited .'timber and water upon the
properties and a railway at the mouth
7 of the main tunnel.. The topography
of the, principal claim is such that
chutes can be'ruii Trpm'the mouth of
the tunnels to.'clump into the railway
cars below. 'Mr. Drewry;was very fort-
' -uniite inseenring this valiVale property,'
as there was considerable competition
among mining'men." to get an option
upon it. The price paid 'was iu the
neighborhood of 590,000, and many en-
giuerrs who have visited the property
belie.e that sufficient ore can be mine*!
������...from it to pay .for it within the next
few months, and1 that it is destined to
he one of the largest silver-lead producers in East Kootenay. This-valuable acquisition of the (Janadian Gold
���nEields syndicate should haven marked
ell'ect on the price of its stock. Mr.
J-leaton, in speaking of the property
said that the Lake Shore'group was
destined, to make the stockholders of
the company rich. Mr. Heaton also
visited the Sunset No. 2, in this camp,
and said he was greatly pleased with
the appearance of that property.

A-Jew Primary Battery.
' .A young Frenchman', has invented a
���primary cell, says The Electrical lie-
view, which is said to give 18 amperes
at 2 volts for a longer time than tlie
ordinary bichromate cell or the Bun-
sen ceil, lis essential characteristic is
that a-vanadium salt or vanadic. acid
is contained in the exciting fluid or in
the substance of the negative or positive electrotUi. Such an element consists preferably 01 an external vessel
coHtaining'a solution of'A) parts of Na
Cl to 100 parts of water, in tvhich an
amalgamated zinc roil is ' dipped ; an
inner porous jar for the reception of a
carbon plate, and which is filled with
a mass of powdered manganese oxido
and fused vaiiadic acid. This jar eoti-
lains also a solution of sulphuric acid,
vanadic acid and hydrochloric: acid.
Ten per cent, of sulpktirio acid may
also be added to the Na (Jl solution in
the external vessel. The ' depolarization is very- energetic on account of
the combined action ot the hydroclorio
acid, the oxygen ami the chlorine.
Moreover, the reducing ell'ect of the
bydrogeii is regulated by the presence
ol the vanadic.acid, since this passes
into hypovanadic acid, ami is immed-.
lately, agaiii; oxidised to vanadic acicl
by tlie hydrochloric acid, while the
hydrochloric acid liberates an equivalent of chlorine and four-equivalents
of oxygen. An addition oi ten -per,
cent, oi bichromate ol potash to the
acidilied solution increases "'the output.
Special cells have been'��� designed for
application to motor cars.

  $$4��* 1. LI1R illS.  " Sh'e is the most outrageous girl i  Surely all Australians are not savages?  It's the greatest pity Mr. Lament's executors fished her out. But, poor girl I  aha was brought up on a sheep farm,  I near; so what can you expect.'"  ' 'What does she do so outrageous ?"  said ths man to whom this diatribe was  addressed by the great lady of Eard-  ley    " Sheep farms don't grow savages,  Lady Mary "  " You've been in Australia, so you'd  know, and I daresay you aro laughing  at me. There is one thing���������sho won't  prove a rival to your daughters," said  Ladj Mary, laughing, "for no man in  his senses would marry her, even for  her money. Sho is such a pretty, delicate-looking- creature, too. It's absurd  to see how she behaves and dresses. Insists on living, by herself, too; most  improper I   A  girl   of  twenty I"  " Eardley will have something to talk  about," said Mr. Verulain, gravely. He  was a London man, but a frequent visitor of the Rector of Eardley, who was  a college friend, so ho was not disturbed   by   village   concerns."  Lady Mary went on volubly, " Miss  Lamont had worn a morning gown,  carelessly put on, to receive callers;  she had not ordered'tea; sho had put  importinent questions; stared at anything unaccustomed; sar. in her chair  to receive elderly ladies, and her manner to men was abominable. Besides all  this, she had talked as if all Eardley  belonged to her���������' My money, my house,  my grounds.' It was sickening I" said  Lady Mary, who was a frightful gossip even a scandal-monger, but a  homelj person. Such a snob 1 But I  daresay she is elated with her new  position. Aro you going to call ?"  " Perhaps. Ilave I heard all tho hor-  *She's a dreadful girl I" said Lady  Mary, vehemently. "Yet I must ask  her to my garden party. ,,You will see  her there. I hope she won't turn everything   topsy-turvy 1"  he got���������up and down, deliberate, examining Verulam bowed with his finest air and the slightest flavor of  amusement.  " You don't look like a Jack or Tom,"  said the young lady, with her hand  held   straight  out from  the     arm.  " Mr. Verulam," said Lady Mary,  performing  the introduction.  " Verulam, ��������� eh ?" Again tho girl's  eyes swept him as he shook hands, declined the sawing system adroitly, and  released her hand at the proper time.  Lo aad behold sho took his arm before he bad offered it; she had an air  of absolute effrontery. " Come along,"  said she, " Hurrah for tea I"  " You're quite ot mymind," said Verulam, as he calmly adjusted her hand  nn his arm���������it had been stuck through.  Ifis dark blues eyes met the quizzical  brown ones, smilingly; but if the girl  did not know what to make of tho  smile, she out stared tho eyes. Verulam wondered how she would drink her  tea. Fortunately she had to keep the  cup and saucer in her hand, but he  felt sure sho looked about for some  place whereupon to deposit the detached cup while she used the saucer. Sho  remarked coolly to   her cavalier���������  " You don't belong here, do you ?  No ? Thought not���������you dress ever so  much' bettor.'  Verulam bowed gravely. ' 'I am  staying with my friend, lho Rector,"  ho said, " I think he has had the plea-  surf   of  seeing  you." 0  " I don't know about the 'pleasure'  either side," said sho, dryly. "Over  h'ore you seem to do things by rule,  instead of suiting one's self, llo didn't seem a bad sort, your Rector. Why  didn't   you   como  with  him ?"  " I am sorry I wasn't h'ero then, but  I can make up for tho disappointment "  " I  wasn't disappointed. I'll bet "  " I mean my disappointment, of  course."  " Fudge I   that's the proper thing  to  say   1 suppose; but it's all make up."  Now these rude speeches had disconcerted the Eardley young men and annoyed  the older men.  Verulam laughed good-humoredly,  and said, " That's a pretty straight way  of accusing me of- a lie ; but perhaps  we over-civilized people have too many  set phrases. We might speak a little  more plainly with advantage."  Sho laughed, too. " I should think  so," she said, but she glanced at him  dubiously; then set. down her cup with  a clatter, indicating danger to Lady  Mary's best china. She began rattling  crude opinions in an audacious manner,  Verulam sometimes agreeing with a  subtle mockery, that evidently puz-  From his friend the Rector, from thc   zled   her,   or  else  flatly   contradicting  doctor's people aud the retired military  folk Ernest Verulam heard the same  story. The wild Australian girl was  iu everyone's mouth. Sho strode  through the- village slashing hor  whip at two or three great dogs ; she  tore about on a barebacked horse, and  wore neither habit nor regulation hat;  she laughed loudly and talked so as  to be heard in the next town. She  had returned the civilities paid her apparently as she pleased, overlooking  this ouo entitled to courtesy, and patronizing the other. The young men  called her a hoyden���������an odious girl.  There , was no putting up with her;  she criticized to your face your, person, your dress, your manners ; laughed at you, called you Charlie or Dick,  whether you were a Charlie, or. a Dick,  or   a Tom,,; or a;Harry.  "I should like to see her," said the  London man to the Rector. " Some of  these  stories must  be yarns."     ���������  ������������������  " I don't think so ; she was only just  civil   tone when T called." :'  ' 'But I've met Australian girls reared hundreds of miles from towns, and  though unconventional they were  charming. This girl is preposterous.''  '��������� See tor yourself," said the! Rector,  " as I have."  Ernest Verulam had nothing to fear  from this young lady's criticism, He  was a handsome man and dressed as  only an English gentleman- can; besides, he was well past;ithirty, and a  man of the world���������sure of himself and  his position; therefore more likely to  nonplus a raw girl than to be nonplussed by her. He went to the garden  party, which, in any case, he knew  would be a pleasant affair. He found  himself,.favorite as he was, .ina secondary place. Everyone was on the tiptoe  of expectation for the, new lady of  Eardley.  A rush to the gate, excited whispers,  a vast amount of pushing, proclaimed  her arrival���������so late that Lady Mary  had given her up. The London man  sauntered carelessly after the stream.  A loud, girlish voice, with a twang was  exclaiming, "How do you, do? Late,  am I? Well, the card said four, and  you people over here never mean what  j-ou say. Ilow-d'ye do, Jack ? There, I  forgot your other name���������Jack will  do."  Verulam was tall, and over the heads  of some people. Before him he saw the  prize young man of Eardley���������who wasn't a Jack at all, but a Frank-  shaking hands with someone; "sawing hUnds," Verulam called it. He in-  jinuated himself forward. A tall,  svelte girl, overdressed in dreadful colors, was standing in thc midst of the  gazers, not in the least abashed or  awkward.j She had the air of feeling  herself queen of the assembly. Her  large brown eyes went boldly over tho  faces before her; she kept laughing  unrestrainedly. But the <was excessively  pretty  for all  that.  " I should like some tea," she said,  sweeping aside the crowd. She had a  glovo only on one h'and, and that looked too large for her. " I suppose it  Isn't cold yet. Anyhow, Lady Mary,  you could have some hot brought. You're a good creature, I'm sure."  "Come and have some tea by, al]  means," said Lady Mary. Her eyejust  thcr. caught sight of Verulam. She  gave him a silent sign to approach.  " Here is a friend of mine, Miss Lamont," she said, " I should like to present to you. He will give you some  tea."  Verulam came up. Hte h'ad need of  his London sangfroid to stand the stare  hor with frank rudeness. Sometimes ho  set- her down patronizingly. She kept  looking at him wilh her big brown  eyes.    Finally she yawned.  " I'm tired of you," she said ; " you  are so very superior to poor Colonial  me. I was bred on a sheep farm, but  I do not know any more Lhan the  sheep."  Even this contemptuous dismissal did  not disturb Verulam's impenetrable  self-possession.*  "A little more," he said, with an encouraging smile. " You'll learn now you  are out of the wilds.   Good-bye."  He. walked off, leaving her staring  after Mm as if he were an enigma.  When he called she snubbed him. She  met him riding: and gave,ca nod. It  was reported to him she had labelled  h:im an "insufferable prig," not in the  least like most Englishmen ��������� they 'saw  in the Colony. She met him one day  in a shop,! where also a native young  lady, of Eardley was buying, and before he had got to the door the heiress  of the Lamonts burst into quizzical  laughter,   and   remarked   aloud���������  "There's the prince or wiseacres I  You're all in love with' him, aren't you-  Miss  Wihat's-your-name ?"  Miss What's-your-name " Sh'd I" , in  a horrified aside ; the shop-girl giggled.  Mr. Verulam walked calmly into the  street; yet he must have heard. Outside he laughed silently ; inside the  heiress said���������  "He's game anyhow," and the two  oLher women exchanged glances of  wonder.  In her own drawing-room1 the young  Australian delivered herself of her  opinions on the, question ' of fortune-  hunting. She was sauntering about the  room, wearing Llh:e. hat she had put  on for the garden, and an apron smart  enough for. a morning over cakes and  pastry but not for the afternoon. Verulam, who had dropped in, stood near  the; mantlepiece and watched the girl  with a smile difficult to understand  on  his  handsome mouth!   ���������  " That's all men care about���������money,"  sho said, " they won't get mine, that's  all." . '���������.-.���������'���������  "You are pretty fond of money in  Australia, put in Verulam, suavely.  "You've been there, haven't you?"  ' 'Yes���������not for long, though."  " Then you can't judge. Anyhow, we  don't beat your, money-grubbers over  here in what you call 'society.' If I  wero fool enough to be taken in, and  found out afterwards, I'd lead lho man  a life," and sho set her white teeth  aud shot a glance from her brown eyes  at Verulam. "Not a bit of shame about  it, either," she went on. pointedly. "I  hate and despise fortune-hunters���������1  won't have them round. Look at the  lot here now���������I'm rich, so they flock  about. They're getting frightened now  though,"   and   she  laughed  heartily.  " But suppose," Verulam said, wil.hL  out seeming moved from, his calmness,  ''that you mistook wheat for chaff.  Every man  isn't a money-grubber."  "I'd find the difference," said sho,  nodding her head emphatically, " Anyhow, you know what I think, and how  I mean to act. Wow I'll have to go;  I've wasted enough1 time. Good-bye.  What are you laughing at ?"  ("At you, if you will allow me the  same liberty you enjoy," said Veru-  ualm,   with -great gravity.  She turned away. "Yesterday you  mean 1" she said. " If you chose to  tear, I can't help it. I can't mince my  tones to suit  thin-skinned people."  " I'm not so sure of that," said Verulam, and again sh'e shot a look at him,  half inquiringly this time; but his face  gave her no explanation.   She walked  away,   omitting  to ring  the   bell.   ���������  This set-down fell ineffectively on  Verulnm; he continued to cultivate  this unpromising acquaintance, while  other men gave it up. Nobody knew  what he meant or wanted; he received the heiress's rudeness with indifference or retort. His friends were astonished. Verulam had always seemed  singularly careless about n^oney, and  besides, he had a large fortune of his  own. To imagine ho was taken by  such a girl���������a vulgar hoyden of the  most primitive manners���������was absurd.  She wasn't an interesting study, either. But Verulam lock no heed; perhaps ho looked upon thc Australian as  a rare specimen of her kind.  The young heiress became as isolated as a girl wi'hout a penny; but to  all appearance this pleased her. To  Verulam, one of lh<i fow who did not  confine his civilities to bare duty, she  was more blatant and flighty than  ever.  One evening Verulam -was coming  home from a long tramp. It had  been a heavy, sultry day, threatening  storm, and as tbe evening drew on,  the sky got copper-colored and the  edges of the clouds flecked. Some big  drops began to fall, and before one  could count five, down camo the rain.  Such1 rain ! it almost blinded Verulam  who made a rush for the only shelter  visible���������a group of trees.  " Nearly caught it that time, didn't  you ?" said a girlish1 voice with a  twang.   .  Verulam got his breath and starl-  ed round. There stood, as dry as a  chip and as mocking as a pert child,  Doris Lamont. One of her big dogs  crouched  at her foot.  " Nearly���������not quite," said Verulam  at once. " You don't mean to say.  you have only one dog with you?"  "You can look about ancl see," said  she, indifferently, but she looked a  triflo annoyed, and moved a step away,  adding quickly, ' 'This is a storm���������I'm  blest  if  it  isn't I"  " I hope you got hero before it began ?" said Verulam, politely, as it  ho hadn't noticed the first thing that  there   wasn't   a drop  on  her.  "You bet I I was a bit too smart  to get caught." She did not look at  him, however, as she made1 this answer���������a trick ho had observed in her  quite  of  late  " I understand tho inference," he  said' laughingly, as he shook the ram  from his felt hat. But I'm a great  deal too smart to slop here wilh lightning coming along."  " Thero isn't any lightning."  "Thero will be."  "Oh, fiddlesticks! The rain is pouring like the tropics, and there's no other shelter anywhere."  " All right. If you mind this rain,  which I don't���������it's nothing like the  tropics���������you can stay here, and I'll get  a  barn  further on."  She muttered something that sounded uncomplimentary, but as Verulam  moved, followed him. Perhaps sho was  more nervous under the trees than she  chose to confess. A few minutes' running brought them to an old thatched  barr. on a patch of open  ground.  "It's safer than trees," said Verulam,   as   the first flash  came  along.  Tho three-ir-man,' woman and dog-  grouped themselves oddly.7 The first  stood near the doorway,- the second a  little distance from'him, the third retired discreetly1" into the7 back, and  made himself, as comfortable as circumstances permitted.1 Doris's slrawbht  was on one side of her head, her curly  htiir wilder than ever with the rain,  her ungloved hands stuck unostentatiously in h;er pockets. She had an;aggressive air. Verulam stepped back to  her after sundry,'covert glances she may  have seen or.she^may not.'���������'���������"..-  "I shan't stop; cooped up here long,"  sh'o said, as if he had desired she must.  "I'm  not a coddle,  thank Heaven!"  " You're an awful hypocrite I" said  Verulam, coolly. ,. .,.���������.-..-���������-..���������  She . stared, flushed, then shrugged  her shoulders. " What do you mean ?"  she said.-' :'������������������'���������  " Don't you think you had better  drop  the game?".  "What do you mean?*;, in an angry  tone, and the blood swept up to her  forehead.  "Why, you've got rid of the fortune-hunters���������all   but , me I" "  "I've played' no game," she interrupted, indignantly. " I never said you  were a fortune-hunter. It's no business  of yours what I chose to do; but I  haven't done anything. I'm a wild  Australian ; I don't know how to behave "  "You're a very original Australian," said Verulam, laughing so infectiously that her mouth gave. "But  you h'aven't frightened me, Doris. .1  found you out weeks ago and you have  been afraid of me those last few days,"  Afraid of you I Nothing of the sort."  "You overdid it, you know," said he,  still   laughing. .  " Overdid what ? As if you'd know,  either I" '.'..'''  "I've been a'lot in Australia; in  towns, up the country, in the bush"���������  her grivtt eyes widened���������"I didn't find  anybody quite savage, except (ho aborigines.  Come  confess 1"  He took her hand. She was scarlet,  and white, half laughing, half ready  to cry, nnd pulling her hand  away.  " Well, if I mustn't take your hand,  this then," said Verulam, and Doris  felt his arm about her. She started,  and held her breath, then got out in  confusion���������  "Oh I I didn't' mind���������I didn't  mean "  She couldn't change her tactics lest she  bhauld draw back the others ; besides���������"  "Oh, don't I'  said Doris, covering her  face.  Verulam pulled her hands down into his. " Tell me now," he said, "what  you were afraid I should find out if  you showed me your real, sweet self,  or if you are too proud to capitulate in  words, for I have won the game between you aud the fortune-hunters.  Are you quite sure I am not one of  them ?    I might  be after all."  " No, no, you couldn't be I I trrust-  ed> you long���������well, I trusted you, anyhow," corrected Doris, hastily, "I'm not  too proud to yield." And then there  was a minutes' interruption, and when  the pretty Australian nwas free to  speak, she hurried on breathlessly,  lesl the victorious lover demand the  end of tho phrase she had broken off  at " long." "It was fun though���������great  fun���������shocking everyone, and drawing  off those money-grubbers. But was I  very  outrageous ?"  ' 'Uow long ago did you trust me,  darling?" Verulam said, totally ignoring her anxious question.  " Never mind ; answer me. I daresay I did overdo it; but then I know  it was only something perfectly awful  that would have any effect. Of course,  you���������you���������noc caring for my money,  but only for mo, you dear fellow I you  didn't think me very dreadful did you,  I do know how 10 behave; but, oh  dear 1 I've got such a name here now,  they'll never believe I can.

The idea of their imagining we Austra-  liano were such savages I" she rippled  out laughing, then laid her head  caressingly against the arm aboui her.'  " I won't be hard, or wild or cheeky  to you," she whispered. " Don't remember   those things I said  to  you."  " My darling I I didn't mind one of'  them ; besides, if, I exact a recompense  for each' harsh word���������" He lifted her  face,  laughing.  " Oh, dear no 1" said 'Doris staring  aside ; " that's too much."  But Verulam caught .her back to  him, and took as many kisses as he  chose, Doris declaring that it wasn't  fair. She couldn't escape, but happy  enough' for all her protests. And then  they found out that the storm was  over and the moon rising. They strolled back to Eardley, Doris meek as a  child, with her hand in her lover's.  They parted at Doris' gate and Verulam walked on to tli'o Rectory; but  before he reached it tho Rector overtook him.  " Weren't you talking to pomeone at  Misfj Lament's gate?" ho said, rather  hesitatingly. "I saw you, but I didn't  quite  liko "  Verulam's laugh' was a little conscious.    "I  like  savages,"  he   said.  "But, my dear fellow, do you moan  ���������pray   take   care���������Miss  Lamont���������"  "All right, old chap," said the other affectionately. " Come and see h'ir  to-morrow, and sh'e shall tell you  hbw. sorry she is that the self-seeking  of other men forced her vto insult even  the cloth."     '7  " Well.'

WHEN  TO  SHAKE  HANDS.  Here are some simple rules for a  hostess to observeiu the matter of  shaking hands:���������  A hostess should shake hands with  every guest who, comes to her house,  whether her own, friend or the friend  of her friend , both'On arrival and departure.  A young girl introduced to an older  woman should await the action of the  elder, who, if kindly disposed, will  shake hands.  Any man prosentod to a woman, unless he is decidedly elderly 'or distinguished, must wait for hor to make: a  movement toward shaking hands, and  when one woman presents to another  the man accompanying her, it is the  duty of friendship, as well as hospitality, for the man to be mot with a cordial handshake.  Ordinarily, however, women are not  supposed to shake hands with men  whea they are presented to them. This  holds good oven at a dinner party,  where a woman for the first time  meets the man who is to take her. in  to dinner.  Tho immensity and variety of tho  mineral wealth of New South ' Wales  has just received another illustration  in tho discovery by officials connected  with the Department of .Mines in that  colony, of vast deposits of bauxite,  which, it may bo mentioned, is a  hydrated oxido of aluminum, rnd  practically tho only ore used in tho  arts of manufacture of aluminum at  the present time, having taken tha  plaeo fcuwiii'ly occupied Ly cryolite,  says' a Sydney letter. The ore invariably has a certain quantity of iron  associated with it, and this metal is  of the present in sufficient quantity  to causp if to bo of value as an iron  oro. In addition to iron, variable  quantities of silica and titanic acid are  nearly always found as impurities.  Depositis of- bauxite have been discovered in tho United States, Ireland,'  France, Germr.ny, and are being extensively worked as an ore of alumina.  The value of aluminum in the industrial arts is very groat and rapidly increasing. In appearance it resembles  silver, and is very malleable and ductile, approaching iron in tenacity and  capable of high polish. It does not  oxide, . and is ono of the brightest of  metals.  DOES NOT TARNISH.  It does not become tarnished like  silver, but retains its lustre under almost every circumstance. Cheaper  methods of production have enormously increased tho demand for the metal  within the last few years. In 1886  aluminum cost ������12.50 per pound, and  the production in the United States of  America did not exceed 3,000 pounds.  In 1807 the inelal could ba obtained for  Is. 4 l-2d. per pound, und' the same  country produced 4,000,000 pounds from  bauxiLo   ore.  The process nowgin vogue is an electrolytic ono, and the largest item in  the cost of production is power���������  :steam, water, or otherwise. Tho ores  from which aluminum is obtained are  cbundanf in tho mountainous country  south of Sydney, also in tho northern  districts and elsewhere, but up to the '  present, notwithstanding the richness  and immensity of the deposits, havo  remained unutilized. Samples of ore  from \v'ingclto, in tho northern portion of the colony, wore analyzed by  the! Now, South Wales Mines Depart- ���������  meut, an! found to contain a considerable percentage of'aluminia.  ENORMOUS   QUANTITIES.  It   has   since  been  ascertained   that ,'. ���������  variously  tinted bauxite ores occur in  enormous quantities in tho district. In  the southern country have been found  iron    ores  containing  a.,   considerable  quantity  of  aluminum,  and which,in  some  respects- resemble  the ferrugin- '..-'  ous    bauxite   of Wingello, passing by  insensible  gradations  into basalt. The  American   bauxite  ores  shown  at ...the  Chicago    International    Exhibition resembled'   somewhat  the laterite , ores  found,in! tho New 7South Wales    tin-; ':'.  mining country, in one part, of which  the  laterite  formation has a superfi-   :  cial area of 11 square miles, 677 acres,    :  and; a thickness froinl a fewi feet to'40  feet.   The beds consist at tho surface  of a red, dusty soil, passing downward  into the red, yellow, or gray tufts rnd  compact  pisolitic   ironstc.no,  which   in.  their turn graduate into rotten, spongy  basalt. .

Three samples of ore, on being analyzed, were  found to contain'58.31, 35.28, 39.82 per  cent of aluminn. The first sampge is  equal to any in the world, being richer  than tho bauxite,ores, of Franao, Austria, Ireland, and the United States,  which at preseut constitute the leading  sources of supply. Bauxite ore forms  the source from which all the aluminium of commerce is produced, and in  view of Lhe increasing-demand for what  is, regarded as ono of the great metals  of the future, especially in connection  with naval architecture, the discovery ���������  bauxite in New South Wales may bo  of practically inexhaustible bads of  regarded as an event of tho highest  industrial  importance.  AND THE STATUE OF JUSTICE  WINKED. '..'.���������,'  A judge in a remtote part of Australia recently had a painful case before him. It was that of a man charged with unlawfully selling liquor.  The judge said he was there to administer tho law, and the man must  be fined, but, as he himself had frequently had the pleasure ot sampling  his whickey, and he saw many persons  in court who had done the same, perhaps the officer would kindly pass his  hat round to see if tbe place contained  thirty shillings.  It did.  PLAYING HER CATCH.  It was evident that ho was rather  nervous, and sho enjoyed it. When  matters roach a point where a girl  is satisfied that sho can land her fish  at,any time, she rather likes to play  with him  a little.  After several absurd bluffs, he mustered up sufficient courage to occupy  half tho settee with her, but somehow,  he didn't seeim to be able to keep his  eyes off the door.  Why, you know what a little bit of  a man papa is, she said, reassuringly-  His heart gave a leap and he edged  closer as he recalled the physiological  fact.  But you also know, she interrupted,  that mamma is big, and strong and  aggressive.  That was true, ho reflected, and ha  began to  think it might be wise    to  postpone what he had to say, when Bba  suggested,, in  her artless way.

That wars cost a great amount ot  money and that many lives ,are sacrificed, in them every one knows, but  thc vast sums that have been spent  feu have any adequate conception of  and of tho enormous number of human  lives that havo been lost in this way  during tho present century. A study  of this subject would be interesting at  any time, but. it is especially timely  now in view of the fact that representatives of all tho groaL Powers havo  met at The Hague with the avowed object of devising moans by which war  " can be abolished altogether and an  era of universal peace be inaugurated  in  its stead.  Tho seemingly extravagant claim  has been made that 40,003,000 human  beings lose thoir lives in war every  i century, and that in Europe alone, the  loss amounts to between 18,000,000 and  20,000,000. Three thousand years may  have elapsed since tho Trojan war, and  sinct* then it is estimated that 1,000,-  200,000 mon have perished in conflict.  In other words, we are told that, if  all those now living wore massed on a  vast plain and by their sides wore placed the bodies of all those killed in war,  the* numbers on the one side would  very nearly equal those ' on the  othor.  During the European wars of tho  first half of this century 2,500,000 men  lost their lives in battle, and Europe  was impoverished to the extent of ?G,-  850,000,000. Since 1850,'it is claimed,  8,000,000 m-en have  PERISHED IN WAR.  Thc Crimean war-cost Groat Britain  ���������5350,000,000, while Russia and'France  spent ������17150,000,000, to say nothing of  the 500,000 slain. The Franco-Prussian war cost France ������850,000,000 for  the seven months Lhat it lasted," and  this does not include the indemnity to  Germany or tho value of Alsace-Lorraine Russia's victory over Turkey  In 1877-78 cost hor ������950,000,000, and  her great struggle with China cost  Japan,   211,000,000   yen.  During iho last seventy years Russia has spent ������1,070,000,000 and has lost  700,000 livesc in war. The great Powers or Europe alone spend ������200,01:0,000  a year ta maintaining war forces, ami  it is estimated that within (he lust s.x  years their war budgets havo increased twenty-five per cent, In 1809 the  European peace armies numbered 2,-  200,000 men ; to-day they number more  than 4,100,000. Again, in 1809, Europe  spent ������117,000,000 on her armies and  navies, whereas to-day she spends moie  than ������240,000,000.  The effect of war on a country's public deb! is naturally very marked. During tho French'war that began in 1792  England's debt increased to the extent  of nearly ������1,500,000,000, and again during the Napoleonic wars there was an  Increase of about ������1,000,000,000. Luring the forty years of peace that followed there was a decrease of ������455,()C0,-  000, but, on the other hand, over S210,-  DOD.OOO was added during thc Crimean  War and the Indian Mutiny.  The North spent ������4,8UO,000,"i.OO during  at Lissa 2 and at Manila and Cavite  practically  all.  The extent fo which war impoverishes a realm is aptly illustrated by  a story which is told of a worthy  smith, who worked for the Prussian  government during the campaign of  180C-1807. One of his bills was recently discovered at the War .Office in  Berlin. It was for seven thalers and  iwenty-five groschen, and underneath  these figures the smith wrote as follows :���������  "Being 'a good patriot, I have  waited three years for this money,  and now 1 Ix'jg that it be paid."  Thf blil was brought to Lho notice  of thc King, and he wrote :���������  "Since he is so good a patriot, he  must wait oven longer, for the state  has no money."  it,we accept tho estimate that 2,500,-  000 human lives have been lost in war  during the last half century, it can  readily bo shown that the average  cast of each of these, lives has been  about ������������(i,0U0. *To what extent Lhe  people of every civilized counLry are  required to bear Lho expense of maintaining the armies and navies! without  which war could not bo carried on,  miy bo seen from Lho following table,  which shows the amount paid per capita in the various countries toward the  military and naval expenses:���������  EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.

There is a good deal of discussion  over the fact that many women do  not marry. In fact one would almost  imagine that it is only the men who  marry, now-a-days. There is a reason for it, of course, and there seems  to be an effort on the part of many  to find it out. Some say it is because  she is "too vain," others that she is"loo  extravagant," "too mercenary," "too  modern." However, Winifred Black  throws a few interesting side lights on  the subject, many of which show the  color of truth.   Sho says:  "The modern woman doesn't marry  because the right man doesn't ask her.  Women to-day are just as anxious to  be married as their grandmothers  wero; sensible,\honesl women are living lo-day and the man who wants Lo  marry one of Ihem can do so���������but they  are not looking for that kind of woman. A man falls in love with an  empty-headed, heartless doll for her  pretty face, and then complains because he finds the doll's head is hollow. ; When a man chooses a sweetheart because, she wears 'dead swell'  clothes, and then falls to lamenting  over the cupidity of woman when that  same girl asks him what his revenue  is before she decides about loving him  ho is not quite as logical as he, might  be. Now is he, really?  "Any woman worth marrying will  j marry the man she loves even if he  j can't scrape up, money enough to pay  se   and the oilier for Women.
