The Slocan Star ia now meeting with  f-ome of the richest ore produced in the  district. The body is 8te������d galena with  large streaks of ruby silver, and a gold  value of $8 per ton. Of course the entire  body is not made up this way, but often  large blocks of such mixture are met  with. The company has about 70 men  working, will start the concentrator in a  couple of weeks, and with a contract  with the Everett smelter.until January  next, it should be a busy and prosperous  year atthe Star.  Mr. W. de R. Rose, now of New Denver, is in the city for a fow days, the  Bosun mine, on which he has been  working, having closed down. We do  not, as a fact, know the reason for the  closing, but imagine it is the smelter  difficulty, as the mine is in excellent  shape. We imagine Mr. Sandiford made  every enquiry as to the. best smelting  arrangements he could, make, and the  owner-* in England considered them unsatisfactory and ordered the close,  Moyie  has  quarantined.  C. D. Hunter is back  for a short time.  J. T. Kelly, of Three Forks, will move  to Phoenix shortly.

With the late frosty weather rawhid-  ing has resumed, there being perfect  safety from slides.  Slocan City is going to have an hospital. The site is a good one, but hospitals are expensive.-  The phonograph company billed for  Monday night failed lo put in an appearance and broke up in Kaslo.  J. R. Crudge has been transferred from  the C. P. R. freight office at Nelson to  the position of agent at Kaslo.  Rev.McKee, of .iSIocan, preached, in  the.Presbyterianchurch last Sunday, Mr.  Fergilstni pccuping the Slocan pulpit, w  ;-���������'.���������'There are 3*et two or three, rooms to  let,upstairs in' the Mining Review, building, suitable for bed-rooms or offices/  The're was a smashing of freieht cars  on a C. P. R. bridge a mile this "side of  Nelson on Sunday, but no one was hurt.  Ed Hill was arrested and brought  back to Sandon by Chief Stubbs to make  a settlement for a $20 watch he purchased from Geo. Knowles.  Mr. C. J. Smith, who has been* bookkeeper for Mr. Harris for over four years,  will leave in a month or so for Spokane,  with his pockets well lined with Sandon "tin;"  Arch. McCorvie cut up a shindy at  Mullin's hotel, Three Forks, last week,  because he could not get the whiskey he  wanted,- and, on Saturday Judge Lilly  lined him $15.  There is an old saying that if March  comes in like a lion it will go out like a  lamb. If this is true the end of the  month ought to be like the tamest lamb  in.the country.  Tlie customs returns for the past year  show the Kootenay yielded 40 per cent,  of the whole of the province. This  should show the legislature there is such'  a district ap thc Kootenay.  '���������Shady" Giegerich asks the difference  between the Democratic and Republican  parties at present, and answers by saying the Democratic Bill is unpaid, and  the Republican Bill is .receipted (reseated.)  Silvertonian: One of our merchants  was the victim of a fraud last week in  the shape of a raised pay-cheque, drawn  hy the Emily Edith management on the  Bank of Commerce in Sandon. The  cheque was cashed here and sent on for  collection through the Bank of Montreal.  The fraud was discovered in Sandon.  .D. J. Robertson and wife are enjoying  the New Denver climate.  Wm. Eccles has started up in the  packing business at Three Forks.  Mr. J. Robertson Barr has at length  been heard from.   He is at Argenta.  Mr. Thos. Jalland is back from the  Okanagun country and is spending a  few days in the city.  The Canadian Bank of Commerce  have given $200 to the sufferers of the  Union Mine disaster.  Alex. Oliver, in his laughable French  dialect recitations, will take part in the  St. Patrick's concert at Silverton.  Miss Lillian J. Warner, formerly of  Sandon. was married on Wednesday to  Mr. D. S. Huntington, of Spokane.  Herb Sharp was trying a snap shot to  secure a picture in the Star mine, when  the "wapun busted," and burned his  hand very badly.  The Rev. J. A.

This will certainly be a  blow at the prosperity of the city. There  was no strike in the Rossland district  when the trouble was on "in the Slocan,  and rates were agreed on amicably. It  is then unfair to resort to the cheap  labor now, which will turn out to be  dear labor in the end, not only to the  business public but to the ownerB themselves as well. When everything is running smoothly in a mining camp the  best of white labor unrestricted by legislation is found to be the most satisfactory to every one interested.  P. M. Hayes is applying for a crown  grant for the Erie claim.  The Enterprise mine is to have a concentrator the,coming spring.  <-' .  Fifteen men were added to Ihe Rambler-Cariboo staff last week.  Whitewater ore shipments for January and February were Sunset 61 tons.  P. Dwyer left on Saturday morning  for Silverton with a number of miners to  work at the Hewitt.  It is currently reported that the city  is the loser of a $40 band instrument, by  the sudden departure of a late member  ol the brass band.  For the past week the Reco-Good-  enough Co. have had sixteen horses  hauling ore, making one trip a day and  drawing a ton each, making a total of  16 tons a day. '  For last month the following Sandon  mines shipped to the Hall Mines smelter  American Boy, Trade Dollar,  Queen Bess, Sovereign, Ivanhoe, Miller  Creek. From Whitewater: Sunset.  and Whitewater.  Mr. Hughes ' is pushing work with a  full force of men on the Trade Dollar  and Sunset properties, and is almost  certain to yet have fine properties in  both. Large quantities of ore have been  taken off the surface of the Sunset.  The Ivanhoe mill shipped 15 cars of  concentrates to the Hall Mines smelter  in the last three weeks netting good  returns. The water supply is excellent,  as the flume was repaired recent'*?.  The concentrator's capacity at present  is something like 150 tons a day. It  is the intention to'have the'shipments  increased. The company are taking  out considerable clean ore at the mine.  Total..  1190  From Sandon.  Ore shipments from Sandon for January and February:  Mine. Tons.

RUSSIANSACRED PICTURES.  to     m  Tlicy Arc Made  In lhe Province of Vladimir by Hm>. rcitsanl*".     -  ��������� They are  to be seen  everywhere���������  tfhe icons,  or sacred  pictures; of the  Russians'.     They are found standing  on a shelf opposite the door of every  Russian room, be it shop or private  house, market stall or railway Lbook-  ing office.     Many also are found in  the    streets, outside churches  or   in  shrines    where    passers-by stop and  make obeisance. '.  It ia   a matter of    wonder  to tho  stranger    when  bis    droahky driver  stops Suddenly in the middle of    the  road; doffs  his  hat  and   mutters]    a  'fe*w words of prayer.     His devotion to  the icons seems' to the foreigner   as  strange as the fact that he devoutly,  crosses:   himself    before  he entrusts)  himself and his vehicle to a bridge.  A writer explains that icons vary  much in mate-rial and value, but little ia style. The style id always  strictly Byzantine, and is copied faithfully from some old picture, in it*  turn a slavish copy of another.  The story of the manufacture of  Lhe icons is interesting. ^ Most of  them are made ki the Province of Vladimir by jpeaeants who work at them  in their cottages. Very much like  an up-to-date factory process is tha  fashioning of these pictures'. Tha  work passes: from hand to hand. One  man makes the boards, another paints)  the backgrounds, a third puts in the  figures, and the picture passes on  from fashioner to fashioner until all  is complete. It is said that as many  aa two millions of icons: are produced  each year.  Some of those hung in tho churches  arc valuable, being, like that of Our  Lady of Kazan, i,n the Cathedral in  St. Petersburg, covered with, and indeed almost made of, precious atones.   -  Mixed About Names.

O.     has    been    frequently  ui������cd  to  grant a subsidy  to  any company that would establish    a  lino of steamers to Alaskan ports, but  no action has  been  taken,  and probably tho need for it has now passed. It  is announced    that    thc Yukon    and  White Pass Railway   has;   lately purchased two steamers in    England    to  ran between Vancouver and Skaguay;  and the Canadian Pacific Railway will  landoubtedly  put as many vessels on  the run to Skaguay, St. Michael, and  other ports in Alaska as,"can be profitably employed.

IMll-i  Iteslored  Him to I  llcnKli aiiil..Stroiit*tli.  For upwards of a quarter of aceh-  tuiry,  Mr.  Geo.   McLean   has  been  a  ���������resident of the town of Thorold. He  is foreman iu  the  lumber  yards    of  McCleary &,  McLean,  and  is  known  not  only    to    the    citizens  of     the  town, but by most of the inhabitants  of-the adjoining region as well. Many  of Mr. McLean's    friends know  that  he was afflicted with a severe type of  sciatica, and 'know also  that  he  has"  been released from- the pangs of that  excruciating   trouble.   Believing   that  .���������his story .would be- of public  interest,  a reporter called upon him, and ask-  ���������ed him' to what agency he attributed,  his fortunate release from pain. Mr.  McLean's    unhesitating  reply    was:  "Dr.  Williams'    Pink    Pills,  and    I  never  hesitate  to say so either."  Mr.  McLean  continued;   "i  was  afflicted  with sciatica for a number of years.  The most severe attack occurred Several years ago, when I was confined  to my bed for several months. I Suffered horribly with the  trouble, and  the only rnlief I could get was from  morphLne, either iu  tablets or hypo-  dermically injected.    I could not put  my left foot on  the  ground without  undergoing    intense    agony.   I    was  treated by physicians, and at the hospital in St. Catharines, to which institution I-had to be taken on a stretcher.   I  was in     the    hospital    nearly  three months, hut without being cured.   Then I returned home very much  discouraged.   I next tried electricity,  but  it had no  perceptible   effect,   i  also tried a number of advertised medicines,   but with  no  better  results.  Finally, Iwas urged to try Dr. Williams.' Pink Pills, and as I was willing  to try  anything that seemed  to  offer hope of a cure,  I got    several  boxes.   I had been using the pills nearly a rn'oath before I found much relief, but from that on my recovery was  rapid,  and in  the course   of  a    few  months, I was as well as ever I had  been.   I    am now a   strong, healthy  man, and although I have since  endured much exposure, I have had no  . return of the trouble,   and feel', the t  my cure is. permanent.   Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills certainly proved a blessing  im my case, and I shall praise   them  whejn opportunity offers."

His namo is suppressed in compliance  with a solemn promise, but he is a publisher in a certain line known throughout llio land. He is of that type that  foresees awful results from tho most  trivial indications. If he has a pain in  his great too, ho anticipates an amputation of his leg, and if a neuralgic  shoot pierces his body he considers  himself a victim of galloping consumption.  iia waked up tho other night with a  dull ache in his side. Of course it was  pneumonia and a bad case at that. He  called upon his wife to get thc "big  bottle" of witch haxel and give his side  a thorough rubbing.- She found the  bottle, which is properly labeled, and  returned.  "No, no," he said as she began preparations for* the application, "Don't  turn down the covers. It.would be my  death if the, air struck me." So she  slid hands and bottle between the  sheets and fought sleep for a full hour  ���������while'she rubbed. Finally he reported  that he was all right and paid a glowing tribute to the curative powers of  witch hazel.  When the good wife went to replace  the   bottle,   she   found   her  hands  us  black as coal and the sleeves of her  only garment in the same condition.  She hurried to her patient in fear and  trembling to find his side as deep an  ebony as that of the king of Dahomey  and ull of his surroundings of the same  color.    Just as he concluded that ho  was   rapidly   mortifying  or   had   the  black plague aud not more than a 'few'  minutes to live the son came in.   He  heard the story breathlessly told and  then laughed until his back had to be  pounded to insure breathing.

What the provincial government intends to do this session in the railway  line appears to be among the uncertainties; but it is earnestly hoped that for  everything they give they will receive a  satisfactory concession.

The recent legislation, or rather railway deals of Manitoba  should   set our  legislature athinking.   In that province  the government leased the entire Northern   Pacific  system  for fli) years, at an  average of about .$250,000 a year.   They  in  turn get the Mann  and Mclvenzii-  people to take the lease ofi' their hands  and give the government  entire control  of rates over their line from Lake Superior to Winnipeg and the leased lines,  by the  government's   endorsing   their  bonds for a moderate amount for a term  of years.   The great advantage-of., that  deal is this:   The government can  fix  the rates on the eutiri" system at such  figures as will enable the road to pay its  way and let them out of responsibility on  the guarantee.  While their is so much talk, Canada  over, about railway 'rate*3, no one expects railways to adopt such rates as  will force them to run at loss-the anxiety  is simply to prevent them from making  excessive profits.  What we want to come at now, however, is the desirability of our government's having in ��������� 11 future railway deals  a due regard for the   interests   of the  people.     Supposing    the    government  were to build the road  from Vancouver  into tlie Boundary themselves, and then  lease it, controlling the rates, it would  be one long step towards securing the  competition for winch the people are so  anxiously looking.   If again after building it they commenced   its   operation  themselves, it would be but a very short  time before they would find eastern connections willing to do just what Mannahd  McKenzie have done With the Manitoba  government���������to take over the road and  give   the  government control of  such  length of system as would ensure competition   for  a   largo   portion    of   our  population.  If the proposed smelters and refineries  necessary to develop the industry in our  mining districts are built in  the future  us thoy are most certain to be, it is very  desirable we should have cheap rates to  the .seaboard for our refined minerals, to  enable thorn  to .compete .in. England,  China, Japan or elsewhere,   with   the  .products from any other  country   producing.   Government control  of a line  from  the inteiior to Vancouver would J  then become all important.  These are all rcsonable possibilities���������  our industry in young, and will yet if  properly fostered by the government,  become one of large proportions.  The government at every step in the  construction of transport facilities  should henceforth have these large proportions in view, and by everything in  their power hasten their consummation.  It appears to us that instead of wrangling over routine, every day bills, or ap-  .

A wise and prudent farmer on going  on to a bush farm, from the first has the  ultimate of his improved property in  view, and every improvement is made  with a view to having it a part and par-  col of his ultimate ideal.

We all expect the ultimate of this  province will be extensive mines in all  the rocky ceuntry, with their concentrators, smelters and refineries at convenient distances apart, and tall chimnies  the assurance of manufactories, where  most adapted, converting our pig lead,  silver and gold into such  manufactures  Transfer of Business.  that every road in the country properly  managed, payu its way, and will do bet  ter as the country becomes more (level    oped.

The deal that Premier Roblin lias  completed for Manitoba is proof that  further government waste kof public resources in this province is wholly uncalled for.  .If provincial guarantees are asked for  by companies,-they may be given to a  limited extent, on condition that the  government retains in its own hands the  control of rates. Ji very one desires to  see all roads pay when built, and by  controlling the rates, the government  retains power, itfelf a guarantee,  without permitting, in excessive rates,  injustice to the people.  What Mr. Van Home said  the other  day   about   government  ownership   of  railways is quite true���������it is not well to  have governments owningand operating  roads, as such  management would be  sure to be inefficient and costly, but control of rates is a very different, thing.. If,  for instance, the government assisted a  road from Vancouver to the Boundary,  on condition'of controlling rates, and  Hill's into the coal iields was extended  west, but a small expenditure would be  with my successors until mv return.

'   notably   the   Nelson   Tribune,  on  this  Crow's Nest Pass Coal question.   It will  be admitted  all around  no country can  become great that is limited to one railway.   The C. P. R. has perhaps done as  well  for Canada as any one road could  or would possibly have done; but that  does not alter the   facts.    One store,  if  strong enough, could do all the bus-mess  of Sandon, and even if it sold as low as  (lie   lowest, the   people   with   it  alone  would not feel  they were getting fair  treatment, and so on with railways.   It  may also be argued with  strong probabilities of  truth, that all- the  roads of  America will   yet   be   in the one trust;  but the people want all  there is to be  got from competition while it is available.  We believe the Crow's Nest coal is the  best article  for smelting on the continent, and all that is  required of it for  home consumption  should   be   made a  ���������first consideration with the people in all  railway  and    other    industrial- deals.  Hill's  proposed  railway  into  the   coal  fields' should- not  he  let in without restrictions; but  if such   restrictions can  be imposed aswilj invariably secure preferences for  homo  purposes, iifthc fuel  supply, the necessary end will  be  fully  secured.  The strong probability is that if Hill's  road once gets into the coal fields, it will  not end I here���������it will   be extended further, and-may result in securing cheaper  rates for ore und  fuel  delivery even at  B.   C.'-smelters.    We  cannot  all'ord  to  tun: mrage any railways, or fuel negotiations that will in  any way handicap our  ���������own. resources,, but  if  further  railway  competition can be secured, and our interests protected in   the fuel supply at  (he same time, it will in  the end result  as the best for the B.

A   coitui-.si'oxDicN'r asks   us  why   Sir  ��������� Charles Tupper resigned as  he did after-  the   elections   of  lSDO.    The reason  is  this:    According  to    the  principles  of  responsible government, which we now  have,    Governor-Generals    and    Lieutenant-Governors are supposed to take  . advice onlyfrom ministers who have the  .-.confidence of a majority of the people's  representatives, and they are supposed  never to be partisans.   After that election the Governor-General had no means'  of knowing of himself whether Tupper  carried  or lost  the country, until the  . ll./iitfo met, outside of newspaper comment and public opinion.   Tupper asked  him to consent to several appointments.  He knew many.of them were not urgent  and wad anxious to know before he acted  whether or not the recommending niin-  j.stt-r,  Tupper,   wss   supported   in   the  country,  and declined  to do  as asked  until   he'obtained, the information   he  sought.   Then when  the  Governor re  ���������'fused   to act on Tupper's recommendation, according to constitution, he had  no course left but resign.   Had the Governor sanctioned Tupper's recommendations, the. latter could have remained in  oflice until the House met, when a vote  would  have'.shown whether or not he  carried the country.

IDentLsts urge mothers to take more  care of their children's teeth during  the first years of life. From the time  when the little white points come  pricking through they should be  cleaned carefully at least once a day,  for on the care of these first teeth depends to a great extent the condition  Of the second set. A small soft brush  (should be applied night and morning,  but if only once can be managed, then  at -night.  before it is used; it will then go further.  Fish as a ft>bd contains much the  same proportion of nutriment as meat,  only in a much lighter form.  .A lump of soda laid upon the drain  pipe down which wasto water passes  "will prevent the clogging of tho pipe  with grease.  Chloride of lime is an infallible preventive of rats. It should be put  down their holes and spread about  wherever  they are likely to  appear.  Cayenne pepper blown into the  cracks where ants congregate will  drive them away.  Soap and chalk mixed and rubbed  on mildewed spots will remove them.  'All spices should  be  kept   in  tins,  'A little grated castile soap used two   and ^ sh:cm]d .^  kept  Ln   a    dry  or three times a week is a good thing  pjaoe  for  children's  teeth/ as   well   as  for (    Baked appies are.the moat heaith-  tfctae in older jaws.   A pinch of pre-   ful deasert tha(t can bo nlaced  upcm  cipitated chalk oil the tooth brush  with the soap makes a combination  that cleans the teeth better than anything else.  The first teeth should be watched  closely for cavities, which should be  promptly filled with a soft filling, the  idea 'being to retain the temporary set  until the jaw has stretched sufficiently to receive the second teeth.  . Mothers often excuse a row of  blackened stumps in a* child's mouth,  .with" the remark that "potor teeth are  an inheritance" from one parent to  .the other. This is true, undoubtedly, but it should be the incentive to  redoubled effort on the mother's part.  Two or three generations of care will  produce sound teeth, and that then  iWiill be the heritage passed on. It is  ���������worth any sacrifice to secure this  double  blessing and beauty.  !A point often neglected by mothers  daring the teeth-forming period is to  see that the proper food is supplied.  A teaspoonful of lime water often to  the baby in arms, and later soft-boiled eggs and other bone-producing  floods, should be provided.  PUDDINGS.  Almond Pudding.���������Stir one table-  spobnful of butter into one half cupful of scalded milk; when the butter  is. melted pour it over three ounces of  bread crumbs:. Let cool, then add one  fourth of a cupful of finely chopped  almonds, five drops of extract of bitter almtonad and one fourth cupful of  jgranulated Sugar; stir in two well-  beaten eggs. Turn the mixture into  buttered cups and bake 20 or 30 minutes in a hot oven.  Banana Pudding.���������Cut stale cake  into, thin slices, and line a dish with  them. Cover with bananas sliced thin;  sprinkle with sugar and a very little  lemoax juice. Pour over this a cupful  of rather thin boiled custard, make  another layer of cake.bananas and custard.   Serve cold.  'Apple Pudding.���������Pure, core and  aJLoe onto ugh apples to fill a baking  diah. flutter the dish well, put in a  layer of apples, sweeten to taste and  dot with bits of butter, cover with a  layer of cako sliced thin, stale cake  will do nicely. Continue the layers  until tho dish iu full. Serve hot or cold  and with or without cream.  Orange Pudding.���������To one quart of  milk add one half of a cupful of sugar,  two tablespoonfuls of cornstarch, dissolved' in a little cold water, and the  ���������well-beaten yolks of two-eggs, Grate  the rind and press out the juice of  three oranges. Scald the milk, add the  corn starch, and then the other ingredients. Boil four or five minutes.  Beat the whites of. the egg3 to a stiff  froth, and two tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar, and spread over the pudding.   Set in a hbt oven to brown.  USEFUL HINTS.  Soap should be kept for some time  the  table.  Good pastry can only bs made when  the ingredients are absolutely cold.  The colder eggs, are, the quicker  they will froth.  A spoonful of vinegar added to the  water in which fis.h is boiled will make  it firm and tendor.  A little vinegar should be kept boiling on the stove while onions or cabbage is being cobked; it will prevent  the disagreeable odor going through  the  hbuse.  Grained wood should be washed with  cold tea, a small surface only at a  time, and1 rubbed well with a flannel  cloth before it becomes dry.  Ammonia painted oyer woodwork  will darken it.  Pickles should never be kept in  glazed ware, as the vinegar forms a  poisonous compound, with the ������*laz-  ing*.  Always well heat a gridiron before  broiling meat, fish, bread or anything  else.  Whole cloves w,ill more effectually  exterminate moths than camphor, tobacco or cedar shavings.  Lemons "will keep a long time if covered with cold water.  ter pound fat to each pound lean. Season with pepper aud salt. Pound in a  mortar one dessertspoonful parsley,  four sage leaves, one small bunch  savory herbs, two blades mace, a little nutmeg, and half teaspoton lemon  peel. Mix thbroujghly with the meatj  put into a mold, and pour over it  enough strong stock to make it moist.  Bake one and one-half hours, aud when  done, allow to oool, When roady tb  serve, cut in thin slices and garnish  with parsley or cross.  A Novel Fruit Dish.���������Cut a pumpkin into a basket with old-fashioned  tub handles. Scrape out the pulp and  seeds. Polish or varnish the rind and  pile high with oranges, apples, pears  and grapes of various colors, letting  them hang over the edge cf the basket.  Cream Tnffy.���������f^ne pint granulated  or coffee A sufraT, half pint water,  three tablespoons vinegar or one teaspoon cream 'artar and butter the  size of a hickory nut. Boil' without  stirring untiV mixture threads froin a  spoon. DPul' as soon as. the candy can  be  handled.  DOMESTIC EECIPES. w  Cherry Pudding.���������Put a pint of  cherries, canned or fresh into an  earthen or enameled dish that can be  set on top of the stove. Make a crust  of ono pint of flour, one heaping teaspoonful of baking powder, a little  salt and sufficient milk to make a  soft dough. Place over the fruit, cover tightly Avith another dish and let  cobk on top of the stove. Do not remove the cover. Cook half an hour,  turn bottom side up, and serve with  rich sauce. There-'should be plenty  ofjuice so that the pudding will not  burn. This pudding is just as good  if baked in the oven, or steamed, and  we think half an hour a short period  for proper cooking of tho crust.  Clove Cake.���������One cup molasses, one  cup sugar, half cup butter, one cup  chbpped raisins, two-thirds cup sour  milk; one teaspoonful each of soda,  cloves and nutmeg; and two of cinnamon ; three cups flour. This is a good  and cheap fruit cake.  Bibbon Cake.���������Cream one cup of  butter with two cups of sugar; add  four well-beaten eggs, a oup of milk,  and throe and a half cups of sifted  flour, to whicli one heaped teaspoonful of baking powder has been added.  Divide the batter into three parts. To  ono add a teaspoonful of melted chocolate and flavor with vanilla; to the  second add- pink fruit colouring and  flavor the third with lemon. Bake in  layer cake tins, put together with boiled icing, the broiwln a-t the bottom,  then the pijak, lastly the white. Ice  the top, coloring it pink.

Tne brushes and  combs are possibly the most neglected  in this line, some being used without  cleaning for months, and others so  carelessly washed as to' be but little  improved by the process. All hair  brushes should be well washed every  week, and the work should be carefully done., A little pearline added to  half a bowlful of warm rainwater will  make a well cleansing sud. The brush  and combs should be worked quickly  through the water by dipping the  bristles in and out, then rinsed in cold  water and well shaken'. If the brush  backs are (silver or ivory they should  not be wet, but rubbed with a little  whiting and well polished. Comba  should bo washed through; the sud and  well dried. Thus, cared' for brushes and  combs will be purified and cleansed so  as to zniake them healthful for use  and will last much longer than if neglected.

Everywhere up the   volga  and  its  hundred  tributaries  ascend  the iron  barges of the Caspian Sea oil fleet,  while    through    the    canals to    St.  Petersburg alone pass; annually, during the 215 days of free navigation,  thousands of    steamers and    barges  bearing  millions  of  tons  of  freight.  Every known means of locomotion is  used, from men, who, like oxen, tramp  the  tow  ���������������������������laths,  hauling  the  smaller  barges, to powerful tugs that creep  along by means of an endless; chain  laid  in  the beds of " the canals  and  minor rivers, dragging after them at  snail  pace great  caravans  of  heavy  barges.     From the greater streams]  imniemse craft nearly 400 feet long,  16 feet in depth, carrying 6,000 tons   ,  of  freight, drift  down . the  Caspian,  where they are broken to pieces to be  used as firewood on thc steamers going up stream.  15,000 MILES OF  RIVER.  In all there are 8,000 miles of navigable waterways in the valley of Volga, or, if the streams which float "the  giant rafts from so large a part  of the traffic of the rivers are included, the mileage is increased to nearly  15,000, or as; much as that of the valley of the Mississippi. -  Fifty mousand rafts are floated  down the Volga annually, many of  them 100 feet long by 7 thick, and  this gives but a.-faint idea of the real  traffic of the river; for in addition  'there are ten rnillion tons of produce  passing up and down the river during  thc open season.

The projeot is to erect on the waterfront of Belleville street, opposite the  main   entrance   of    the   government  buildings, a public water gate or approach frojin the harbour to be   known  aa th* "Paardeberj-r Gate."  .   TJi.i������ stracture will comprise landing,  steps about 100 feet long, leading to a  .platform about 30 feet    wide;    from  thence the level of    the   roadway is  reached by two broad flights with balustrades. The centre of this, platform  "is , to be occupied by  a   bronze    bas-  relief about 6 feet by 3 feet 6   inches,  ' repiresenting the incident of the death  of Sergeant Scott at Paardeberg while  leading his comrades to the attack of  the    Boer positions.     This   bas-relief  eat in the wall, fronting the harbour,  within pilasters and under a pediment  surmounted by the word Paardeberg  Will afford the central motive to the  construction.  The piers at the Iower"end of the  stairs will be surmounted by liona  supporting the arms of the city, those  of the upper end by ornamental light  ���������standards.  This plan provides a large    amount  of masonry work with a   very small  portion, of actual sculpture or bronze  casting; yet thc prominence given to  this later feature at the head of converging steps and  fronting  the  harbour will give great dignity and point  to    the    event   commemorated.   It is  also  proposed to acquire, if possible, a  captured Boer cannon which will'then  occupy an upper platform! above    the  bronze to be approached from Belleville street by three   or four    broad  steps,   ���������.'  The work is to be executed in granite at a cost, including the bronze,  estimated at about $15,000.

Tlie aftermath we've garnered  Of yesterday's delight,  From that fine roast they gave us  Some nice cold cuts to-night.'  Wednesday.  That luscious roast of Monday  Is lingering with us yet;  "lVas served to us this evening,  Disguised as beef croquette.  Thursday.  It seems Skinflint's investment  In roast was not so rash,  As we supposed.   Tin's evening,  'Twas served again���������as hash.  ��������� Friday.  To-day we all were grateful  To get a little fish,  No beef, we hope, remaining  To form another dish.  Saturday.  Ah me!

Jafl'ray & Co.,which  means they are intended as a feeder for  the smelter trust across the line. This,  of couse, in the interest of the province,  should be checkmated. Hill, in turn, is  asking the British Columbia parliament  for a railroad charier to connect his  American lines with the coalfields..' The  British Columbia people want more  railways, they want cheap access to the  American smelters, and they want local  smelters properly encouraged. The proposition is to make the best terms possible to secure;-all three. The C. P. R.  has done well by thc country, but it will  do better with a second road.       ..'  Provincial smelters are . most advantageous, but it is well to have access to  two systems and all markets for our  ores.  it is now the duty of the B. 0. legis- ���������  latnrc to see,we get a quit pro quo in j  railway matters. If Hill gels a charter,  it should be distinctly settled that we  get cheap rates lo the American smelters  that the government has control of rates  over the proposed lines, and that B. C.  demand is supplied with coal before export is allowed. Such stipulations in-  volve a-15 mat deal of legislation, but  they are possible and should be secured  before If ill gets hie pound of flesh.  Certificate of Improvements.  .
