Sandon was never before as quiet as  it is now.  Mr. Levering.went to Nelson Thursday for his exam.  ChaB. Culver went to Nelson Thursday for a few days.  Thos. McGuigan arrived here Thursday from a trip to Spokane.  Miss M. English is spending the school  holidays at her home in Kaslo.  Grant Thoi burn is in Dawson and will  open up in the hotel business again.  Some of the kids went down to Three  Forks on the 4th to play a game of ball.  Prof. Lippy is ont in the Klondike,  and it is reported that he has made a  rich haul.  Mike McCarty of the C. P. R. depot  heie, is relieving the ager.t at Rosebery  this week.  Rusty Crawford played on the Phoenix football team on Dominion day at  Grand Forks. ���������  There'was a special meeting of the  council called for last evening, but we  have no trace of what was done.  Mrs. Cliffe left yesterday with Herbie  and Osborne for Toronto, to procure  medical treatment for Herbie's eye.   .  Nakusp's Dominion, day celebration  was very successful in the way of sports.'  A few attended from Sandon. A grand  ball was held in the evening.  . Wm. Dunn brought back Crawford &  Griinmett's packing outfit and mules  from the Lillooet country, where they  were packing for the Lome mine.  Win. Karr and W, VV. Fallows were  chosen school trustees on Saturday, to  fill the offices vacated by Eli Taylor and  W. H. Lilly, but we understand Mr.  Fallows refuses to act.  , People are dying from heat by the score  in many of the eastern cities. It is different in Sandon,.no house being really  comfortable without a fire, and the  hills around fringed with the beautiful.  j1 The New York Journal in speaking of  the Wonderful mine, Sandon, says the  owners have been hunting for the lead  for the past' 80 years. It is news to  Sandonites to hear mining operations  were carried on here 30 years ago,  ' ,\ A wedding took place on Monday  afternoon in the. Catholic church, where  Joseph Selles, of' this city, aud Miss  Elizabeth Waggoner, of Spokane, were  united in marriage. J. G. McDonald  acted as best man, and Miss M.Egan as  bridesmaid. Rev. Fathei Cote tied the  knot.  Monday/being the 1st of July, Dominion day, nearly all the school children  and lady folks that were left in Town,  got up a picnic at the Cody grounds  and spent the afternoon enjoying themselves. A number-of them took baskets  along filled with bakings. Mayor Lovatt  took the trouble to get up foot races and  other sports for the boys and girls, and  presented the winners with prizes.  It is rumoured an eflort will now be  made to locate recreation gounds at the  ,,' west end of the city. The success of our  sp6rts at football, baseball, hockey and  all other athletic exercises, should convince our townspeople we have the material to do the city credit in all these  amusements, if the ground for regular  practice was available. We believe a  plat at the west end can be' got that  could be put in proper shape at a moderate cost.  H. Giegerich and wife have returned  from their eastern trip.  Mrs. G. W. Grimmett will be at home  on Thursday, July 11th.  D. J. McLachlan commenced painting  the schoolhouse this week.  Mr. Murray Byers has gone east to  visit his mother who is very ill.  H. H. Pitts left for Nelson on Saturday where he will reside for the present.  Brinsley Walton is doing tlie assessment work on the Silver Cord, at Cody.  Mrs. Oscar White leaves today for an  extended visit in'the eastern and central states.  Subscriptions taken at Cliflfe's bookstore for Winnipeg Free Press for 60c.  per month.  J. M. Harris returned home this week  after spending a month's holiday at his  old home in Virginia.  E. A. Brown has completed the  Hewett tramway, and it will be carrying  down ore in a few days.  Over 600 persons died from the heat  in New York city and 2.0 children in  Montreal the past week.  Mrs. McKinnon left on Monday for  the Boundary country to look up  another business location.  F.J. Lenalian, of Nelson, is operator  at the C. P. R. depot until the return of  M. McCarty from Rosebery.  The Sunday ball game at Kaslo between Sandon and Kaslo resulted in a  draw, the score being 8 to 8.  Harry Nash is talking of visiting  White Horse, in the northern country,  to see how "the cat jumps" out there."  Sidney Normon has has gone over to  Prince of Wales Island to bond some  mining properties for Ohio capitalists.  The Lord Bishop (Episcopal) of New  Westminster, and Rev. C. A; Mount,  of New Denver, were in the city last  Thursday.  The Urso, Concert.  Madame Camilla Urso gave an entertainment here on Monday evening to a  small, but appreciative audience. The  audience was small, simply because so  many people were drawn away by other  attractions in other places, being 1st of  of July, Dominion day. She is a violinist of the highest order, less pathetic  than Remenyi, but equally executive,  especially with the bow, with that celebrated artist.  M. Sheldon Peirce, her pianiste, is a  a marvel m her line,   her chords being 1  exquisite and in time perfection itself.  Miss Hellen Hall, the vocalist, has a  rich mellow contralto voice, limited in  compass, but trained for every effort it  is worth. Her cool, collected appearance adds much to her effect. For all  in all, they are one of the best companies  on the road, and if the Miners' union  aim at securing such entertainments for  the people of Sandon, they will deserve  the thanks of the entire people. The  citizens would liberally patronize good  entertainments if they were saved from  the number of fakes that travel. ���������  000O00O0OO00OOOOO000000OO0  O 0  ininq News  Local Recorders' Statistics.  What with the band serenading and  powder burning on Thursday night, the  Fourth of July was'celebrated quite  noisily in Sandon.; ,,  W. W. Fallows, J. A. McTaggart and  A. Fisher were down to Nelson attending a meeting of the Similkameen Valley  Coal Co. held on Thursday evening.  Miss Flora McRae, who has been visiting her sisters, Mrs. R. McDonald and  Mrs. Chas. McLachlan1 for some time,  left on Mondav for her home at Strath-  cona, N. W. T. .  Dr. Hendryx, of Los Angeles, Cal.,  who is the principal shareholder in the  Last Chance mine, is in the city for the  purpose of attending a meeting of the  company, which will be held at an early  date.  An ice cream and strawberry social  will be held in the Methodist church on  Thursday evening next. The proceeds  derived from this function will go towards the maintenance of the reading  room. A cordial invitation is extended  to everyone, and a splendid time is  assured.  The Miner complains of a lot of monev  being wasted on Nelson's celebration.  This is the cane everywhere, but there  is no reason it should be po. Flags,  signs, mottoes, Chinese lanterns, &������.,  that are in use on such occasions should  be sayed from year to year, to ,prevent  useless waste.  The annual instatation of officers of  Knights of Pythias for the ensuing year  took place last Wednesday evening. The  following are those elected: Rev. J. A.  Fergnsnn, C. C.; F. Norwood, V.C.; R.  Marshall, P.; J. Manning.-M. of W.; J.  D. McLachlin, M. ofF.;   G.

The bond on the Washington has been  thrown up.  Mr. Warner  is   sacking  ore at the  Wonderful these times.  Another rich strike has been made on  the Hazel May at Crawford Bay.  The Payne and the Ivanhoe have put  on a few more men to work this week.  The shipments from the Queen Bess  for the month of June were 150}4 tons.  to  at  shipped yesterday  and    Soho   mines  up  on  Supplies were  the    Red   Fox  McGuigan.  The Miller Creek will soon start  again. W. W. Warner has a lease  this property.  Rochester capitalists, who have an  interest in the Hartney, visited the  mine this week.  At the Ruth mine there are a few  men in No. 5 tunnel working on the  lead. It will likely be some time before  the mine is fully opened up.  We understand quite a rich strike was  made on Carbonates No. 2,v up the hill  from Cody, on Wednesday. A body of  rich, clean ore, assaying well has been  uncovered.  The mining situation in the Lardeau  at present gives nothing of particular  note to;record, according to the- Eagle's  review: Assessment and development  work is being steadily pushed along;  more pack horses are leaving town than  usual, and each day the town is becoming apparently quieter, as the men drift  out into the hills to work or prospect.  A small strike was made in the Union  Jack crosscut; work is being pushed  along in the old mines; a good showing  has been found on the Alphine group.  Nelson Spores.  In baseball Nelson played against the  Slocan with Sandon as a centre, and  c������me out second best, the Slocan scoring  9 to 6. G. Petty, of Three Forks, was  by far the best player on the ground,  doing very superior batting. Sandon  sent out Richards, Bailey and Murphy.  ' In the drilling contest G. S. McLeod  and Wm. Roes, of the Star mine, had  virtually no opposition, but all the  same they worked for blood. They  drilled 28 1-16 inches in eieht minutes,  having struck a snng in that time���������a  split in the rock. The Star now has the  championship cup, these two gentlemen  having taken it twice in succession.  Vaulting with pole, G. S. McLeod, of  the Star, took first money, vaulting 8 ft.  2 inches.  In running high jump J. S. Gusty  took first place in 4 ft. 6 ins. He also  took the hop, atep and jump in 31 feet  Q}4 intches.  Slocan basebalhatB defeated the Trail  men very easily in a match game. The  game stood; Slocan, 12; Trail, 8.  smelter Men Here.  Messrs. Ehrenseller and Beer, representing the Antwerp Smelting &  Refining Company, of Antwerp,'Belgium, were here" this week to make  arrangements to handle the silver-lead  ores of Slocan. They would either  handle it through the local smelters  and refineries or by shipping the ores to  Antwerp. They have visited the leadr  ing properties tributary to Kaslo, and  were in consultation with the. best  authorities here on the mining situation.���������Kootenaian.

Lie was1 a brainy man, for all  lie had at ono time been a valet. His  brains, indeed, had proved his ruin,  for they brought him duwn to the  level' of the cracksman.  Things wero at a somewhat awkward pass at tho time, and as his  pals shufllod out "hands" from a  vilo pack of cards and scooped their  tricks by Uio light of a reeking, evil-  smelling lamp, they threw many anxious glances at The Don. lie was  reading a paper, seemingly quite oblivious of his surroundings. Then ho  slit a small rectangular hole in the  newspaper, and holding up to tho  light the printed scrap of paper that  had lilied it, he addressed the other  two  occupants  of the room.  "Listen to this, boys: it has given me an ,idea which may or may  not prove a bonanza: 'A Murderer's  Escape.���������The linll'o ��������� Hill murderer,  James Cooney. who was lying under  sentence of death at Barneville Gaol,  effected his escape this morning with  singular cleverness and daring, and  is believed to bo hiding in the neighborhood of JLutingdcno. You know  Lutingdene, Steve?"  "Viscount Woodward's place? I  oughter, Don. Got six months to  remember it in when I first joined  thc profesh. What's yer lay, anyway?"  "To crack that crib in a distinctly  new and original style, and give you  your revenge at thc same time. This  is how I propose to do it. On the  23rd, two days from now, the Viscount is giving a 0ball to celebrate  his son's return from South Africa  with the V. (J. The ������������������affair will be  one of considerable magnitude, as  the society papers say, and in all  probability every jewel in the country worth looking at will lend its  sparkle to the general brilliancy.  We've .got to annex those jewels."  "Huh," said Stove, while the  other mail, "Welsher," was content  to mutter hoarsely an encouraging  "Go on, .Don."  "The opportunity will arise when  the party are assembled in thc Blue-  room for tho amateur theatricals.  The servants will be there, too. The  consequence will be-that every living  soul in the mansion will be gathered  together in one room at the hour we  select for operations. Now, there  are two doors in this room, one at  the side and one behind the stage,  and at the appointed time your station shall be at one, Steve, and  yours, Welsher, at thc other, both of  you ready at a given signal to lock  those doors from the outside. I will  give the signal from the stage."  "From the stige, Don?" echoed  Steve. "Yer a-gwine to tike part in  the play-act in'?"  "My performance, will be a solo,  and will, I'expect., prove so absorbingly interesting that a rich harvest  of jewels shall reward my efforts.  After my 'turn' has concluded the  door at the back of the stage shall  open to permit of :ny exit with tho  spoil, when it will immediately bo  relockcd, and we depart with as  much celerity as may bo."  Welsher looked at the speaker angrily. "There's a time for all things,  Don, and rip mc if this is any time  for fairv talcs. What yer mean to  say?"  "llol' on Welsher," said Steve  with a grin. "I know what Thc  Don's up to. He's a-gwine to hyp-  nertize 'em so as they all go to  sleep, eh, Don?"  "Hypnotize them?" repeated the  Don. "No, Steve, thc force I advert  to is tho sort of moral suasion that  is exemplified by a dynamite bomb  on the point of explosion."  There was a slight pause, in order  that this utterance might have duo  comprehension, and then The Don  proceeded:���������  "It shall be necessary tliat I have  the stage temporarily to myself, and  this end I will attain    by  a simple j  subterfuge. I will then claim the attention' of the audience for a few  minutes, and this shall be readily  accorded to me if only on account o������  tho strangeness of my appearance,  which will be an exact facsimile of  the escaped folon, James Cooney."  With great lucidity he continued to  expound his scheme, weighing its  possibilities aud combating its difficulties with a wealth of ingenuity  worthy of a bettor cause. Whon he  had finished there was silence, and  two deep-drawn breaths wore simultaneously inhaled.  "What about goc-ography, Don?"  inquired Stove, slowly.  "Shall we say topography?" corrected Tho Don, smilingly. * "Thero  is no need for anxiety on that score.  I was a valet once, you know."  "What!   Vor boss was no, garn."  "Fact. Viscount Woodward. I  know every nook and corner of Lut-  ingdone."  "What about gettin' away, Don?  Tikin the jools may be all right, but  tikin our hook's the chief thing after  all.    What yer say,  eh?"  "That, Welsher, is, 1 fancy, my  trump card. For thc purpose of putting as much real estate as possible  between our precious solves and Lutingdene after effecting the coup, wo  will take temporary possession of  the Viscount's motor, which a wise  forethought shall have ready prepared for us. You will recollect that  the engineering of a motor represents a small component part of my  varied  accomplishments."  "Don't you think, Don," said  Steve, doubtfully, "that a dynamite  bomb is an awkward bit of goods to  bo experimentin' with in tliat .kinder  fashion? Might go o(T sudden-  like    and bring    down the house in  earnest."7  "Steve,"- said Tho Don with solemnity, "the light that will cause that  bomb to explode will never be invented."    "What! Spoof 'em?" was the delighted query. '  "Marvellous    intuition". You've  guessed it.    Undoubtedly the    game  is spoof."  * *        * * #���������'.'*  Lutingdene was: thronged with  guests and the revel was at its  height.. The magnificent ball-room  was a glittering panorama of whirling forms rhythmically obeying, the  strains of a popular waltz.-played by  a celebrated band. On the terrace  scattered groups of men smoked in  silent communion; the garden walks  were paraded by mysterious whispering couples. Only tho yard and stables were deserted, for the servants  wero waiting eagerly for the signal  which' would summon them to witness the , theatricals in the Blue-  room.  In' the shadow of the coach-house  wall three motionless figures, one of  them carrying a peculiar shaped parcel, stealthily made their way toward the house'. ;  Had anyone gone down to the  coach-houso afterwards' ho might  have observed that thc lock had  been skilfully picked, leaving tho  door ready to bo opened at a moment's notice. Pursuing the investigation, tlio back gate would have  boon found in a similar condition,  and inside the coach-houso it would  havo boon seen that the Viscount's  automobile was In'' a singular state  of preparedness for a, journey, considering the hour, and rapidly generating tlio force necessary for speedy  departure.    ���������  Some twenty minutes later the  guests wore ail seated in the Blue-  room, facing a miniature stage', beautifully draped, and soon to be trod  by the clever amateurs-who had graciously consented to amuse their follows. All the theatrical surroundings and accessories which tlie wand  of wealth could summon served to  convert for the nonce the handsome  chamber into a veritable theatre,  and the delighted acclamations of his  guests rewarded the Viscount for his  efforts towards their amusement. As  the orchestra concluded a brilliant  overture -his' companion, the Dowager  Lady Trillington, tapped him with  her fan.  "Do you believe in dreams, Viscount?"  "My dear Lady Trillington, T confess J have never asked myself ths  question. Stay, I do believe i.n  dreams, that is if thc lobsters are  strong enough. If they're nqt,, ,$hy,  you may esccpe after M-lh'-  Will you continue using impure, hand-rolled tea, when  a better article, grown on British soil) is at }rour disposal t  Both  (greens ancl c, Blacks have   earned a reputation  foi?'  quality.

It is a pet theory of mine."  "From which J infer that some vision of deep import disturbed your  rest last night. Not anything unpleasant, 1 hope?"  "Indeed, yes. ��������� It was more a  nightmare than a dream, and was so  vivid that 1 have not shaken off the  cITccts of it yet. It foretold a calamity if ever a dream did, and I am  convinced some misfortune shall follow from it."  "Your dream could have no better  ally than your own faith in it, Lady  Trillington. You must really understand that the thing is absurd. If  wo were'to live in constanWIread of  the unknown existence would be intolerable."  "It is not the unknown I fear.  There are plenty of very real dangers  always around us, even in charming  Lutingdene. For instance, that escaped murderer, James Cooney, who  is supposed to be in hiding hereabouts. Our very lives are not safe  while he is at large. Why don't the  police do .something to capture him  and put an end to our anxiety?"  "Well, I grant you they have allowed our confidence in them to be  shaken somewhat. But we must not  expect too much.5 Few of us havo  any .comprehension of the manifold  difficulties the police 'encounter .in  their work. By the bye, Lady Trillington, E notice that you do not  drive about as much lately as heretofore. I trust your penchant -for  the open air has not .suffered through  the escape of this criminal?"  "I fear it has. I must retaliate,  however, with a similar query. What  have   you done with your motor of  late?" " 7  "It is out of order I am sorry to  say. The brake refuses towork, and  other .matters prevented me having  it repaired up to the present. . Tomorrow I shall have'it looked after.  I hope your fears won't prevent; you  accompanying a few of us for a run  when it is serviceable again."  -"Oh, no, I shall be charmed. But  here arc our budding actors all coming down to us. What docs it mean?  Something must bo wrong."  The Viscount looked, up in surprise as the players in the "piece  trooped into tho room from one side  of the stage, dressed in character.  "What is the matter, Woodward?"  inquired one of tho men approaching  him.  echoed    the Vis-  you  mean?     Why  slip of paper pin-  "The    matter?"  count.     "What do  don't you   begin?"  "Why, there is a  ned up there requesting us to go before the curtain for a few,-minutes  before commencing the performance.  It is signed by you."  "You"must bo joking, Plimsoll. 1  never wrote it. Halloa!"  Tho exclamation was caused by the  sudden rising of. tho drop curtain,  revealing a strange figure standing  in the centre of tlie stage, a man of  middle age, unshaven and uncouth,  with close-croupod hair and repulsive features. His ragged clothes,  stamped with that hall-mark of infamy, the broad arrow, enhanced his  sinister exterior. Ho held in one  hand a round, black, ominous-looking object, and in tho other a lighted  taper. At Lis feet was an open  brown leather bag. It was our  friend    Thc ' Don,     dressed  with  as  much faithfulness to the published  description of the escaped murderer  as his experience as a valet enabled  him  to  exercise.  When the curtain had folded back,  which it did automatically, he took  a step to thc front' and said, in a  harsh voice:���������  '"Silence. Let no one move, on the  peril of his life and tho lives of  every soul in this building. I have  in this hand (holding up the round  object) a deadly explosive, and the  moment this taper touches it we  shall all bo hurled to destruction. If  anyone moves' 1 shall apply the  light. I am reckless as to the con--'  sequences. My lifo is forfeit in any/  case, and L place no value upon it.]  1 wish to offer you certain terms lav  your safety which you must accept.'  Tho alternative is death."  There was a short pause, during  which everyone'sat as if turned to  stone. The conviction that here indeed was the escaped murderer,  James Cooney. was absolute. Haf(  the man shrieked out his words ������id  flourished his argument, so to speak,  in their face's, very probably some of  tho ladies would have fainted, wad  the men,. rendered furious in const-  uucr.ee, might have precipitated matters in a very unpleasant .niannw for  The Don. As it was, his cool demeanor and low, stern tone, which'  rang with the deadly earnestness ->'i  a desperate man, merely stunned t?: *���������  senses of his hearers into a kind ������i  mesmeric stupor.  "I, must have the jewels of every;  lady in the room. The gentlemen ^  \yili excused, as'their valuables ai >.  too bulky for my purpose. You, sir,  wiU collect the articles. Take thin  bag.7 Quickly. Time is precious."  The youth he addressed, extending  towards him the hand holding tl>t  lighted taper, rose hurriedly witfc  ashen cheeks, and seizing the bag lying on the stage in a trembling  grasp he began to collect, the valuables.  TITo experienced no difficulty in od*  tabling the jewels. The Don's superb acting, so wrought on the  nerves of the ladies that they flung  their costly treasures almost with  relief- into thc bag, and the men,,  with the consequences of resistance  so surely before their mind, showed  little desire to prevent them. That  the man was . utterly reckless and  desperate was the uppermost thought  in tlie minds of all, aud in comparison with human Jives jewels were  cheap. Furthermore he would bo  pursued as soon as ho,had discarded  his hideous plaything, and his capture was certain. Indeed, it was  hard to seo how ho could possibly  cscajie.  Driven by his own overmastering  fear, the trembling collector rapidly  made the tour of the room, Lhe hag  meanwhile . swelling visibly a.s its  costly contents' became augmented,  till finally with difficulty the patent  self-locking jaws clicked together.  The coup was completed, and iioth~  ing now remained for thc conspirts*  tors but to beat a rapid retreat.  The Don glanced down at the bag'  at his feet and then round the room.  With the pride of genius he could not  resist that triumphant pause, that '  exultant look of victory at his conquered enemy.

Charles  Spurgeon Loved the Weed  Edward Is a Great   '  Smoker  Likewise.  ���������King-  A devotion to the  would  seem to   bo  feature . -of    many  joys of nicotine  a  distinguishing  of    thc world's  men,   if we may judge by  number  of  famous  people  admitted their sincere at-  to    the    pleasures of the  greatest  the large  who have  tachment  weed.  The late Charles Spurgeon was an  enthusiastic smoker, and braved a  considerable amount of popular disapproval rather than abandon his  daily whiff. On one occasion he actually made a reference to his cigar-  smoking habits in tho course of a  sermon, vindicating the absolute  propriety of a minister of religion  following this practice if he felt disposed.  H. M. the King is, and always has  been, a devotee of the weed, and in  this example he is followed by nearly all the Continental Sovereigns.  President McKinley of the United  States is said to bo one of the best  judges of cigars in the Union, though  he does not indulge in smoking to  any great extent.  The famous writer, Thomas Carlyle, was rarely seen without a clay  pipe between his teeth, and one of  his most famous literary panegyrics  is devoted to the delights of "Lady  Nicotine." Victor Hugo was also a  passionate lover of tobacco, and  paid fabulous prices for his cigars.  Guizot, the French historian, considered that it was tobacco which  lengthened his life to an inordinate  ��������� .degree; whilst Charles Kingsley, the  immortal author of "Westward Ho!"  was unable to compose a single line  of his brilliant work until a cigar  .was firmly set.  BETWEEN HIS LIPS.  Robert    Burns    was    a persistent  smoker,  and would    sometimes  consume.lib. of tobacco per week.  The late Lord Tennyson, when being asked how he liked a continental  tour, confessed that ho had disliked  Venice because "they had no good  cigars in the town," but towards  the latter portion, of his career tho  Laureate abandoned cigars in favor  of clay pipes, made especially'for his  own use. ���������    ���������������������������  Prince Bismarck,was an inveterate  cigar-smoker, but tliat his good-  heartedncss could triumph over his  love r������C the weed was proved during  the Franco-German campaign, when  he resigned a cigar which he had  been treasuring for use after the battle to a wounded soldier who cast  longing eyes at the precious weed.  His great contemporary, General  Moltke, was equally devoted to  smoking joys, and was rarely seen  without a huge cigar between his  firm  Vips.  , Professor Huxley stated in thc  course of a lecture that he considered tobacco "a sweetener and equalizer of the temper," and he supported his theory by consuming vast  quantities of tho same on all occa1-  sions. Charles Lamb, the delightful  essayist, held a similar opinion, and  he was once heard to express tho  wish that "his last breath might bo  drawn through a pipe and exhaled in  a pun."  Both Charles Dickens and William  Thackeray loved a good cigar,  though curiously enough the former  rarely refers to tho smoking habit in  his fictions with any degree of enthusiasm; but Lord Lytton, thc famous contemporary of the two aforesaid writers, not only revelled in the  making of smoke, but glorified the  process in various nortions of  HIS VOLUMINOUS WORKS. ,  Thomas Alva Edison smokes, to  use a popular simile, "like a funnel,"  and has often been known to consume a dozen cigars in the course of  a working day. When pondering the  details of a novel invention ho confesses that he is greatly aided in ihe  process by the presence of a fragrant  weed, and there arc few brain-  workers who do not find their wits  stimulated by such extraneous aid. ,  On the other hand, thero aro many  famous people who view all forms  <oi tobacco with, uiideiu&hle aversion.  Napoleon the Great was one of this  class, and aftor making an heroic attempt to smoke a pipe in his early  manhood, ho abandoned the business  with alacrity and never smoked  again.  Tho celebrated Dr. Abernethy hated nicotine with fervent hatred, aiid  on being asked if tobacco injured the  brain, replied testily that the question was a vain one, seeing that nobody possessed of brains would contemplate ' smoking for an instant.  Equally Mr. Algernon Swinburne,  the famous poet, is an enemy of the  weed, and cannot remain in a room  where tho odor of tobacco has penetrated.

SATURDAY, JULY" 6, 1901.  AGAIN.  Aid. W. E. Gomm, M. D., is again to  the fore with a defence for passing his  own accounts   at  the  Council  Board.  Here it is:  "Here lies a liar who always lied;  For lying he was noted,  On earth be served his father well,  An now he lies with him in hell."  The most of people will vote this the  masterpiece of a master mind. This  Gomm says that'an "unsettled or disputed" account does not disqualify him,  it is only "unsettled disputed" accounts  that disqualify. Let us then for his  pleasure take him on his own ground.  The care of this "smallpox" patient was  ordered by Mayor Pitts long before the  accident that created W.E.Gomm.M.D.,  an alderman. Instead of paying it the  then council sent it to the government.  The government repudiated it and returned it to the council, where it  remained unaccepted and unpaid, until  HOW IT WORKS.  The owners of the ��������� silver-lead mines  say it is not so much the low price of  lead at the present that prevents them  from   operating  their properties; it is  more the  uncertainty of  other  conditions.   They no sooner got well under  way after the slump in prices of a few  years ago,  than, without a moment's  notice, to help out, by Hume, Houston,  ' Green   and  such  representatives,   the  eight hour law, increasing the cost of  output by 20 per cent., was forced upon  them.   Next followed,  again  without}  notice, tho double tax, and now again  there is in the wind a compulsory arbitration law that will force them to pay  certain wages,if they operate, regardless  altogether of the priceof silver and lead,  and without means tb compel the men  to accept the wages  agreed on, if they  are not voluntarily disposed   to   do  it.  Under the circumstances they 'think it  best to stay shut down until   the  politicians and the men get enough ol it. In  all their past troubles, most of the business men, the saloon keepers, mechanics  and laborers of other callings sided with  the  men  and   against them; and it is  best now to give all bauds a full trial of  the results of   their   past  acts.   If "all  hands and the cook" think it is best for  themselves and the country to have the  mines closed and the men out of work,  a lengthy experience may bring them to  conclusions.   When eventually all these  elements come to   the  conclusion  it is  best to support a policy and men for the  legislature, that endorse such actions as  will enable the mines to work on a reasonably safe basis, things will be different in the country.   This is the conclusion of'most of the owners.  It is invariably the policy of all prudent governments to keep their labor  elements as well employed as possible,  it appears to be the aim of the British  Columbia government to adopt such restrictions as drive their laboring classes  out of the country by the thousands to  seek employment elsewhere. If the  state in times of stringency opens up  public works to develop the country,  and employ its unemployed, it does its  simple duty. If it endorses restrictions  that antagonise capital and labor, it  becomes the rankest enemy to national  growth. There is no half way about it,  and the people should readily draw  their own conclusions.  FOOD   MEDICINE  Scott's emulsion of cod-liver  oil is equally food and medicine.  A little of it sets the stomach  at work on some easy food���������i  that is medicine.  How does it "set the stomach  at work?" By making strength:  by creating strength: by turning the oil into body and life  ���������that is food.  We'll send you a little to try, if you like.  SCOTT & BOWNE,    Chemists., Toronto,  Bofore we dismiss the question there  is one matter on which the public would  like'his opinion: W. E. Gomm, M, D.,  what is your honest opinion of a man  who a few months ago when seeking  election to a council board wrote the  press declaring it was not his intention,  if elected, to turn out old officials, and  who, when elected by the clerk,  stabbed his benefactor in the back for  his kind office, in violation of his own  declaration in print. Do you think such  a man is entitled to either public con  lidence or public respect?  the accident we have referred to that  enabled W. E. Gomm, M. D., to personally deal with it. Is not this enough of  the "unsettled disputed" to please even  W.E.Gomm.M.D.?  We can excuse this gentleman for his  absence of knowledge of British law, as  he is but a pinch beck Canadian subject  at best, having been whitewashed but a  few weeks ago for a purpose; but this  Bhould not debar him from having a little common sense and ordinary discretion. General reading should show him  the law of Canada in every province is  against representatives in all capacities  municipal and otherwise sitting in judgment on accounts and transactions m  which they are financially interested. It  is not, necessary for this gentleman to  court action in the matter by any cheap  banter, as he is likely to have all he  wants of it without it, later on.  Though  no   sensible  man can sympathize with the arguments of Wilson,  official in the Trackmen's union, who  says the strike is to compel the C. P. R.  to give a larger share of their earnings  to  the  trackmen, it  is  generally conceded the men are right in demanding  higher wages.    If it was a fact  rates  were cut out for the railways of the  world by some superior power, and that  the wages they pay are the result of necessity, public isentiment would go with  the companies; but when  it is known  to the public,  that the railways could  increase the wages of their laboring men  by cutting off some  of  their overpaid  officials, or by advancing  their  freight  and passenger charges, it puts a different face on the matter.   To the credit  of the C. P. R. it must be said they have  always paid higher wages than  other  roads; but this does not prove thatrail-  way laborers everywhere are fairlypaid.  A miner will not work eight hours lor  less than $3.25, a car man for the same,  time must have his $3.00, aiid in this  country a man digging ditches or'breaking stones for 10 hours work wants $3.00  also.   The railway trackman is out in  all weather, and   should   have  higher  wages,if the railways have to raise their  charges lo pay them, as ���������some of them  would have to do to float.  A. R.

The city auditor recommended the rewriting of the late City Clerk's books,  and offered to do the work for $100. No  doubt any systematic man could  do all in a few days the work to  be' done, to place matters in a  satisfactory shape, and W. E. Gomm,  M.D., alderman by the grace of Clerk  Lilly, wants to pay the new clerk $100  extra for doing it, though there is an  offer of a capable man before the council to do it for nothing, and the clerk's  work at $10 per month less besides.  There is more money now owed and due  this month by the council than the  revenue of the next six months will pay,  leaving the city go begging in the interval; aiid this man Gomm,can see no  necessity for retrenchment. What do  the men who are putting up their hard  money, to pay necessary taxes, think of  this way of doing business ?  Everybody Wants.  Why is it the Nelson Tribune copies  every thing it can find in any of the  prints unfavorable to the C. P. R. track  men in their present strike.

It is singular that there is a pre-  jjudice among many people against  washing the hair, says the Edinburgh Medical Journal. This may  foe accounted for perhaps in two  .ways: One, that iti the female sex,  at least it is certainiy rather a  troublesome procedure to wash, and  still further to dry, a copious and  lengthy crop; and again, when washed with ordinary toilet soap, or with  solution of borax as some do,' the  hair is left harsh and dry, and tends  to fall more plentifully in consequence. But unwashed, eltete epidermic particles in most cases accumulate around the roots of tho  hairs, and encourage if they do not  directly cause diseased conditions.  These cannot be removed by brushing, which, if at all vigorously carried out, like thc small-tooth comb  ���������an abomination now all" but banished���������rakes thc scalp and eventually  renders the plight worst than before.  ���������If a well made superfatted soap, in  .which the alkali is potash and not  soda, be sprinkled over the head,  then sufficient warm soft water be  added from time to time, first to  produce a lather,  wash out this lather  incorporated dust,  dried will be found  flexible, while the scalp  sation of tenseness.    Or  subsequently to  , and with it the  the hair when  to be soft and  has no sen-  in place of  the soap, we may have recourse to  an infusion of quillaia bark in warm  water. This contains saponin, which  emulsionizes the fatty matter, and  floats off thc dirt. Another safe and  excellent shampoo is yolk of egg  beaten up; this in like manner combines with the fat and renders it  removable.  It may be gathered from what has  been said that the proper use of a  hair brush is to polish and dress the  hair, not to remove scurf. Therefore, a brush with long and fairly  wide set bristles should not be used,  nor what is termed a hard and penetrating one. A comb with wide-set  teeth should bo used to arrange it,  and in women it ought not to be  dragged when put up.

The 4.7 gun  at Grcylingstad also opened fire on  the enemy, who uncoupled thc engine, and sent it at full speed back  towards the armored train. The  latter, however, promptly backed,  and the engine, mounting an incline, was brought to a standstill  without material injury. Two  trucks, laden with petroleum, izal  and flour, however, were totally  wrecked and burned. No casualties  occurred on the train. Two Boers  were seen to fall from the fire of the  armored train, and shells from Grcylingstad burst in their midst, knocking a few men over.

A light hardwood stain can be produced at homo by the mixture of one  pint of boiled oil, one pint of turpentine, one tablespoonful of burnt  sienna, two tablespoonfuls of chrome  yellow. This stain is used for pine  and similar woods.  To make a darker stain add a  tablespoonful of burnt sienna and the  same of burnt umber.  AValnut stain contains two tablespoonfuls of burnt umber, three of  burnt sienna, two of chrome yellow,  one-half teaspoonful of lamp black,  one pint of turpentine, one pint of  boiled oil.- '.   ��������� ������������������ '  After cleaning the floor rub in a  small amount of the preparation  with a cloth. Then begin with the  brush. Work the brush always in  accordance with the grain of the  wood. Attempt only a few boards  at once.  The room should be closed until  the slain is dry. This will usually  require a day and a night. When  this is arrived at, rub thc floor  evenly with a small strip of old carpet bound about a brush. When a  high polish has been raised in this  way the time has come to lay on  your varnish1 or wax.  Thc varnish maybe purchased in  small quantities or large ones, already prepared for use on floors.  Varnish smoothly and 'carefully.  Watch the grain of the wood and let  your brush fall in with it.  Care is necessary with tho stain in  several ways. Never apply a mixture to the floors without trying it  first upon a strip of board.  NEW CHERRY WAYS.  1  Canned Cherries: For canning,  sour cherries are best. Select fine,  ripe fruit, stem, wash and stone. To  every 1 qt. fruit allow -J lb. white  sugar and ������ pt. water. Put the  fruit and sugar into the preserving  kettle in layers and let stand one  hour, While waiting, simmer in the  water to be added 1 tablespoonfulof  the stones for every quart of cherries, strain, then add sufficient boiling water to make up what was lost  in simmering. Add this to the fruit,  bring quickly to a boil, let ';pil five  minutes and seal boiling hot.  Cherry Cheese: Stone red ebonies  and chop them very fine. To every  1 lb. fruit add ������ lb. white sugar, and  simmer very slowly until a smooth  stiff mass. Pour into glasses and  when cold sceil like jelly.;      This is  delicious served with whipped .cream  and sponge cake, or used as a filling  for  layer cake or sweet sandwiches.  Cherry Pie: Line a pie tin with  good puff paste, and sprinkle over  it 1 teaspoon flour .: and 2-3 cup  sugar, over this place 1 pint stoned  cherries, cover with ah upper crust  arid bake in a quick oven to a light  brown. ���������  Cherry Syrup: Select large, ripe  cherries and extract thc juice as for  jelly. To each qt. juice allow 3 lbs.  granulated sugar, put the sugar  with 1 pt. boiling water into a  saucepan and stir until it is dissolved, then add the,cherry juice and let:  come to a boil. Skim well, boil one  minute, bottle and seal. This makes  a delicious pudding sauce, or is excellent for serving 'with hot cakes.  Spiced Cherries: To 7 lbs. cherries  allow 1. pt. vinegar and 4 lbs. sugar.  Mix i oz. ginger root, 1 teaspoon  ground cloves, '2 teaspoons allspice,  2 teaspoons cinnamon and A teaspoon ground mace, tie in a muslin  bag and put it in the preserving kettle with the sugar and vinegar.  When it bo.ils add the cherries, bring  to thc boiling point again and pour  carefully into a jar. The next morning drain the vinegar from thc fruit,  heat it again and pour'it over the  cherries. Do this three or four days  in succession, the last time boiling  the juice down to just enough to  cover the fruit. Add the fruit, let  come to a boil and can.  VOTING  BY POST.;  In the elections for the Victorian  members of the Australian Legislature the citizens have the facility of  voting by post. An elector who resides at least five miles from the  nearest polling-booth at which he is  entitled to vote, or who has reason  to believe that on polling day he  will not be within five miles of such  booth, or that on account of ill  health or infirmity he will be prevented from voting personally thereat, may obtain through the local  postoffice his ballot paper from the  returning officer for the district.  The writing in of the names for  which the elector wishes to vote is  done in the presence of the local  postmaster or the police officer specially appointed for the district to  visit sick and infirm persons who  cannot attend the postofiicc. These  witnesses, however, must not look  at the names of the candidates  which have been written.;  A COMMERCIAL  TRAVELLER'S STORY  Interview with Mr. J- H.

Toronto, June 17. (Special).���������Mr.  J. K. Ireland, thc well-known traveller for hats and caps, left for the  Maritime Provinces one day last  week. Handily packed in Mr. Ireland's private grip-was a box of  Dodd's Kidney Pills, the medicine  famous throughout Canada, as a specific for all troubles of the kidneys.  When asked about his experience  with this remedy Mr. Ireland grew  quite onthusiastic.  '-'I never go out on a trip of any  length without a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills," he asserted.  "Are you afflicted with kidney  trouble a great deal then," Mr. Ireland  was  asked.  "Not a great deal now, no," replied Mr. Ireland, "I take Dodd's  Kidney Pills more as a preventative  than anything else. But iu the winter of ninety-eight I was, 1 can tell  you. I was down in Nova Scotia  when I first used Dodd's Kidney  Pills. I don't know whether it was  the water down there, the climate,  riding so much in the train or what,  but certainly my kidneys were on  the point of a complete break-down.  Bachachc! It was one continual  misery. It spoiled my business,  broke my rest and wore me down  until tho life was taken right out of  inc."  "And vou used Dodd's Kidney  Pills?"   "  "I used the only remedy I knew of  that was a specific for tlie kidneys,"  answered Mr. Ireland. "The first  dose of Dodd's Kidney Pills seemed  to go right to thc spot. In a few  days I was feeling as well as ever I  did in my life. Thoy arc a splendid  medicine. I.   have    recommended  Dodd's Kidney Pills to scores of  men on the road like myself and  none of them but have the warmest,  praise for the medicine being just  exactly what we need in our walk of  life, a safe reliable strengthening  stimulant  for thc kidneys."  CHINESE DENTISTRY.  They Have Been Slow in Hecogniz-  .   ing Western Superiority.  If the Chinese can boast, that nothing is new to them, and that all the  arts and sciences are old stories in  the Celestial Kingdom, it is still  true, that for operations in dentistry  an American or European would  hardly care to go to a Chinaman.  The work is ludicrously primitive.  Tho operator extracts all teeth with  his fingers, and it must be admitted  that his success is astonishing. His  dexterity is due to years of practice.  Frojn youth to manhood he is trained to pull pegs from a wooden board.  This training changes the aspect of  the hand, and gives the student a  finger grip amazing in strength,  equivalent in fact to a lifting power  of three or (our hundred pounds.  For toothache he employs opium,  peppermint oil, cinnamon oil and  clove oil. Sometimes he fills teeth,  but he does it so bunglingly that the  fillings stav in only'a few months.  An cremont of superstition runs  through all thc work. According to  the system, all dental woes are  brought on by tooth worms. The  nerve pulp is such a worm, and is  always shown to the patient. For  humbugging purposes, also, the den-,  tist carries about hi his pocket some  white grubs, and after he has extracted a tooth he shows a grub to  the sufferer as the cause of all the  trouble.  The position of the dentist of this  class is not very lofty among his  countrymen, and he is regarded as  half-way in social importance between a barber and a laborer, which  is certainly a great injustice-to tho  honest laborer^  3  }  i]  IV  t'  w  \)\  11,  H  f! >i  (,   il  ii  ..!.)  ���������\ ;i  :i' I  ���������<a-m^tnm������_MitalHffiBfe^ r  jBancaiBcai.������.uuiMjmnffrmr_tainiT-nraBmaag  tension was obviously relaxing.

So The Don quietly  stooped and picked up the bag, tapping    the floor with his boot as he  FRAGRANT  did so.  Then with his face to tho  watching crowd he backed slowly towards the door, which in the meantime had mysteriously swung open.  ��������� When he had passed through it closed with a bang, and the key was  turned in the lock.  Half an hour afterwards a strange  spectacle might have been witnessed  on thc bleak country road between  Lutingdene and Trilliek, the railway  station of the district. Thc road  was one long and uninterrupted descent, in part perilously steep, and  a huge automobile was flying along  it at a whirlwind pace, jolting over  the eccentricities of the primitive  roadway and reeling horribly in the  clutch of ruts and depressions. Inside thc car were three terror-stricken, wild-eyed men, one of them vainly tugging at a useless brake with  the monotonous persistency of despair, and the horror of swift approaching death1 writ large on the  faces of all.  The moments passed, the huge vehicle gathering momentum with  every rood ' traversed. And then  Fate appeared in the shape of the  massive white gate of a railway  crossing. The motor hurled itself  into the obstruction with the force  of a score of battering rams. There  was a horrible rending noise of  splintering timberf the hissing of escaping steam, a sharp cry of agony  intermingled with a long, shuddering  xnoan, and then the silence of the  grave.  When the catastrophe was discovered (which was soon afterwards, owing to the cluo furnished by tho missing motor) one of the occupants of  the car was found unconscious in a  field some distance away, having  been shot from the car like a cannon ball at the moment of collision.  It-proved to bo Welsher. His superficial injuries were practically nil,  and he lived to taste the hospitali-  '-ies of a Government retreat for several years afterwards..-.

SAN FRAN-  NAVAL RATTLES  IN A TANK.  How   the    British   Admiralty   Experiments With New Models.  Some years ago a Mr. William  Froude brought to the notice of the  Lords of the Admiralty a scheme  that was then adopted, and has been  in  use  ever  since.  A large tank was constructed, fitted with an apparatus for carrying  on experiments with models of war-  vessels���������an apparatus that has, since  that date, been considerably elaborated, with the result that" there is  now in existence a miniature sea,  whore the naval engineers may play  at mimic warfare, practising' with  the models that are continually being evolved as one type of battleship displaces another. The Italian  Government has also a tank on the  same lines.  Tho models are made of paraffin  wax, and the usual length is about  twelve feet, a size found by experiments to coincide best of all with  thc "genuine article" of so many  thousand tons.  The models arc cast in moulds,  and then finished by hand with the  aid of certain elaborate tools. The  tank is about ,'.500 feet long and 10  feet deep, with a breadth of over SO  feet. Twenty inches or so above the  surface of the "sea" is a kind of  diminutive railway on ' which a  small engine is placed, by means of  which the models arc towed through  the water.  A model that may, in outward appearance, be a masterpiece of symmetry, will often be found to have  numberless defects when "launched.  Either her resistance to the water  is too great, or she 'may ride awkwardly, or she may be found incapable of being moved at any high  rate of speed.  The Admiralty are naturally very  chary about supplying information  It would not do for foreign governments to be allowed access to the  designing rooms of the British, Admiralty.  Numerous experiments are carried  on in thc Government tanks with  models of-suumari.no and torpedo  boats ss well as the larger craft.  The models have speed indicators affixed, and are regularly put through  thcir_ paces. "'".'���������  An ingenious arrangement, first  discovered by Mr. Froude, consisted  of a smn.ll paper-covered cylinder,  upon which a pen operated, marking  a line that indicated the speed of thc  model when being towed through  the water by the railway engine already mentioned. Thus it could be  easily ascertained if in her "trial  trip" the "ironclad" came up to expectations as regards the way in  which she moved.  It is interesting to learn that  vatc ship-building firms, besides  Admiralty have their tanks for  pcrimental purposes.  6i  We Can Bo No Mope"  SO SAID  THREE  SULTAT10N.

Our army in South Africa stands,  or at least stood, at about 250,000  men, while our army of railway servants in the United Kingdom is just  double this���������500,000. It is not  clear, from our war oflice figures,  how many of our troops have been  wounded (and recovered) during thc  campaign, but the total number of  deaths in action up to the end of  April was only l,.'Ji5; and if wo multiply this by five we will probably  get a fair ratio for the wounded,  who would thus number some 6.000.  But, apart from losing some 016 in  killed; our railway army has no fewer than 15,000 of its members ��������� injured in one year���������which is thus relatively a very much larger proportion of wounded than has fallen to  the lot of our warriors in the field.  We thus arrive at tiie astonishing  result that at least one profession  of peace is far more perilous to limb  than the practice of war.  ��������� w ���������*��������� iii iifi>  Yet tbe Pallcnt Han Been Restored to  BlcnUIl sind Strength Tlirousli tho  Ascney of I>r.

For nearly  two years Mrs. Fair was a great sufferer from troubles brought on by a  severe attack of lagrippe.    A reporter who called was cordially received  by both Mr. and Mrs. Fair and was  given the following facts of the case:  "In  the 7 spring    of .1896 J  was attacked  by lagrippe foe which I was  treated by our family doctor but instead  of getting    better T gradually  grew worse, until my whole body became racked with pains.

I had not taken /many boxes of tlie  pills before    I   noticed an   improvement in my condition and this    encouraged me to continue    their, use.  After taking   the pills   for    several  months I was Completely restored to  health.     The   cough disappeared;    I  no  longer suffered from the terrible  pains I  once endured;  my voice became strong again;  my appetite improved,   and I was  able   to     obtain  restful sleep once more.    While talcing thc pills I gained 37 pounds   in  weight.     All this I owe to Dr.  Williams'     Pink Pills, and I feel that I  cannot say enough in their favor for  I   know    that they   have   certainly  saved my life."  In cases of this kind Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills will give more certain  and speedy results than any other  medicine. They act directly on the  blood thus reaching the root of the  trouble and driving every vestige of  disease from the system.

Tho largest coal train engine in  England has been constructed at the  Great Northern Railway Company's  locomotive works at Doncaster. It  is an eight-wheel coupled engine designed to draw 800 tons. On the  first trip from Peterborough to London it took 650 tons, drawing forty-  five trucks. Other engines of the  same type are to be built to facilitate the main-line coal traffic.  gIsyaa-������M_MiKi!t!������aMg-a!a  THE  KING'S  SIMPLICITY.  Likes Short Dinners and Not Over-  Much Display.  It was to the Prince of Wales that  modern society owes its happy loss  of the sombre and dull dinner-party  that used to he so prevalent. Though ,  everyone disliked the long and wearisome feast, and felt excessively heavy  and ill after it, yet no one had the  courage to give it up. because it was  supposed to be a sign of good breeding and high life generally. But the  Prince had the fact made known that  he detested parade of this kind, and  would only, endure a dinner of a few  courses exquisitely cooked. Thus  at, all really smart parties now tho  menu is a short one, and the viands  are not heavy but easily digestible.  Another of the King's fancies is a  hatred of the long row of knives and  forks some people like to place ir.  front of each diner. He refuses to  have the whole plate basket laid out  on the table, and has a single fork  and knife placed for his own uso  with each dish that is handed; a  fashion chat prevails also in the be^t  hotels and restaurants.

A scow loaded with horses, mules and  machineiy was wrecked 10 miles below  Big Salmon on Tuesday morning at 10  a. in., drowning  John  XV.  Lowes "and  causing a narrow escape for nine others  who were taking the scow to Dawson.  Tlie scow belonged to J. A. Rouse,   of  House  <SrWren, freighters to Dawson.  Mr. House at the time was  behind the  scow in  a small  boat gathering- poles  for a manger   when   the   accident  occurred.   The   left   hand   channel   was  taken  about a mile and a half above  the wreck, instead ot taking the right  hand one, which is   always considered  dangerous by all boatmen.   The channel makes a big bend about half a mile  above   tho   big  bed of rocks.   Once a  scow gets into this channel it is almost  impossible  to get it  out   again.   The  scow hit the   rock   broadside, ��������� throw-,  ing Lowes,  who was at the sweep, with  three others,   into   the  river  over the  up stream side.   He sank immediately,  going under   the scow   and coming up  about 40 feet from the wreck only   to  disappear again.   The scow then began  to go to pieces, throwing live stock and  the rest of the crew,   who were asleep,  into the water.   A   struggle   for   their  lives began.    Mr.   Leslie,   who  runs a  wood cam]) on the opposite side of the  river, seeing tlie accident,  took a small  boat and  succeeded  in   putting   them  ashore.   Two members of the N. W.M.P.  detachment at Big Salmon  went to the  scene and took charge of the drowned  man's effects.   Lowes was born in  Toronto,   Ont.,  but  had   been   living   in  Sandon before   he   went  to Klondike.  Jobbers and Retailers in  'SHJiRF^LjIKB.  and  ies  Mineral Output.
