Mrs. Dubois, visiting with her sister,  Mrs. G. B. McDonald, at Cody, is ill  of a fever. ���������  The hockey boys will' shortly hold a,  meeting and organize a club for the  winter Beason.  Ward McDonald returned to Sandon  a few days ago from a pleasure trip to  Idaho and Montana.  It is quite likely mining news will  revive after the conclusion of the Silver-  lead Mines Association meeting on the  4tli prox.  ,Mr, Pound had the .misfortune to  have one of'his fingers badly smashed  the other day. This will put him out  of-work for two or three weeks.  The Silver-lead Mines Association are  to hold a meeting in Nelson on the 5th  of December, to- fully discuss the refinery proposition pf erecting a refinery.  W. F. Dubois has resigned the poiiti-  tion as superintendent of the Arlington.  He has been in charge of this property  ever-since the present company, the  Arlington  Mines, limited,   took   hold  Of it.    .���������;       .    ,      '  Mr. W. F. Dubois, who recently resigned the management of theArlington  mine, which he, brought to the front  rank, has three 'offers from different  points of the compass, and he does not  yet know which one he will accept.

He favors'  bonusing the Great Northern, and this  alone should kill' him. What do the  people of the Kootenays think of taxing  the mines till they are. tied up body and  bones to raise money to subsidise the  Great Northern to build up Victoria?  Victoria has milked the province long  enough.  Mr. C. Chffe, editor of this paper, has  received an order from the Dominion  government" for 10,000 copies of a  pamphlet he has written on the resources of this province. He ia getting  from the C. P. R. and the Provincial  goyernment. And yet McAdams of the  Paystreak says he. is the worst writer in  the country. Doctors always differ,  however.  A story is told of a four-year old girl  who was staying a night away from  home. At bed time she knelt at her  hostess'knees to say her prayers, expecting the usual prompting. Finding  Mrs.' B. unable to help.her put, she  concluded thus: "Please God 'souse  me; I can't remember my prayers, and  I'm staying with a lady that don't  know any."  Five cars of machinery and building  mateial of the old Lanark concentrator  from Laurie have arrived for the Payne  mine so far, A small staffof men are at  Work getting the heavy timbers and  lnmber ready for over the K. & S. to  the Pevyne; mine. The machinery is  being stored away on vacant ground  . near theC. P. R. track. All told there  are about 200 tons of lumber and 60 tons  machinery on the way. It is expected  that building operations will commence  next week when the heavy timbers will  belaid. It is a matter of a short time  when all the plant and building  material will be on hand. T. B. Folliott,  the contractor, will be back next week  from Laurie, where he was overseeing  the work there, and as soon as he arrives work will be at started at the  Payne.

We were a little out saying last week  Mr. Hunter, of Silverton, had bought  the Comstock mine and would pay all  creditors in full. He simply bought it  in at $6,000 for all the creditors. Instead of getting their money the creditors get the mine. The concentrator  ought, however, to be good value for  most of this amount.  It would do good to all who intend purchasing Christinas and New Year's presents to lookat the choice goods being  opened at Cliffe's bookstore.' We have  but very little trash from last year, and  that is going at, cost; but all is new,  bought cheap for cash, and going at  prices to suit the people in hard times.  You can literally load yourself up there  for very little money, "     \     .  The case of the City vs. Trenarey was  settled out of court. This dispute arose  from the fact of Trenarey.having in his  possession sorne of the' band instruments, holding them for the balance  of salary due him by the band before it  was broken up. Theinstruments belong  to the city and Mayor Lovatt entered  proceedings to recover them. The case  was settled on the understanding that  Trenarey hand over the instruments to  the mayor.      . v     "      ' .   >  Ah adjourned meeting of the Curling  club was held in the city hall on Tuesday evening, where a large attendance  was in evidence. The principal discussion was the advisability of securing  the bonspiel for Sandon this year instead of Rossland as heretofore. It was  thought that aa Sandon was one of the  first clubs to form in the Kootenay, (excepting Kaslo) and. furthermore, took  initial steps in forming the association,  that they were justly entitled in having  the bonspiel held' here. Messrs. Grim-  mettand Cavanaugh were elected to  represent the club at the association  meeting to he held shortly, and try and  secure the "spiel" for Sandon this year.  Here and There.  A schoolmaster recently received the  following note: ��������� "Dear Sir,���������Please  excuse my aon- Jack, from attending  school to-day, as he has to be at the  funeral of bis two aunts. I will see it  does not occur again.  It would have been amusing to have  heard John Houston swear when he  learned that Bela Kadish, the late manager of the Northport smelter, on resigning was presented by the employes  with a watch valued at $400, and that  the new manager says he will not deviate one iota from his predecessor's  course.  Because the Nelson Tribune opposed  the city by-law to purchase power from  the West Kootenay Power Co. and it  was defeated as the law reads, that  paper throws its hat in the air in ecstasies of delight, alleging it was the influence of that paper that did it. The  Jaw reads that three-fifths of the votes  cast on a money by-law must be for it  or it is defeated. In this case 207 votes  were cast for the by-law and 150 against  it. The Tribune can take what comfort  it can out of the fact that it influenced  the minority and not the majority. As  it was, eight more votes for the by-law  would have carried it.  In Tunnel and Stope,  The Hartney is to resume  shortly. ._ .  operations  The Goodenough commenced rawhid-  ing yesterday.      ��������� ���������   '  The SlocaD Star has 500 tons of ore  ready for shipment.  Shipments.from McGuigan this week  were Rambler 247 tons.  to  Accident at the Payne.  An accident happened at the Payne  mine Thursday morning about half  past nine which may terminate in causing a loss to Louis Miller, of his eye  sight and severe scalp wounds while his  partner Jack FaJler sustains a' compound fracture of the elbow. The direct  cause of the accident can hardly be explained as the men had the night before  discharged the ten rounds of holes they  had drilled during the day and by count  were sure they had gone off. At the  time of the accident the hi en were in a  shaft engaged in clearing away the  debris made by the blasting of theprev-  ious evening, Miller using a pick while  Faller was standing near by. The supposition is that Miller had struck a  stick of power���������by some unknown  means mixed up in the debris���������  with his pick while engaged in clearing  away the accumulation and received  the force of the explosion in his face,  while his partner being a short distance  away was more fortunate by receiving  lesser injuries.  Mrs. Parry's first appearance before a  Sandon audience at the concert on Friday evening was quite satisfactory.  Her superiority as a singer consists  largely in the fullness and clearness of  her upper notes, though in her lower  registers there is nothing remarkable in  her voice above the ordinary. She was'  encored at each number. Mr. Sharpe's  recitations were exceedingly well rendered, his local skits and hits taking  well with the audience. The public  would like to have more, of him. Mrs.  Thompson also recites well/but her  voice is best adapted to tragic readings.  Mr. West's recitation also took wpII.  The local orchestra covered themselves  with glory. , Mr. Parry by request gave  a couple of songs. He amuses in mmic  songs; but it is no injfiStice to  say he is not a vocalistof note.-  The following we clip from the Montreal  Star of  the  16th inst.   The lady  referred to was thedaughter of Anthony  Cliffe, uncle of the late Anthony Cliffe,  father of the editor of this paper.  Very  few of  the  members of  the old Cliffe  family died   under  the  age of  70, and  many of  them   ran well  up to 90:���������  "Dowager Lady Jane Carew, who  has  just passed away at. her home in Woods-  town, Waterford, Ireland, was 104 years  old, and was celebrated for having been  one of the "fair women" over whom the  lamps shone bright at the ball at Brus-1  sels the night before the battle of Waterloo.   Lady Jane's father was Major  Anthony Cliffe, of New Ross.   In 1810  she was married  to Robert Shapland,  who afterwards became .the first Baron  Carew  of the United Kingdom.   She  was the great-grandmother of the present baron, who, in 1888, was married  to the beantiful Julia Lethbridge.   As a  girl Lady Jane was entrancingly beautiful.   She made a positive sensation at  the court of France, where her simple  gowns of Irish cloth charmed the men  of Paris and caused  great jealousy to  disturb the hearts of the ladies.   In the  court circular  of  King Louis Philippe  she was described as being "charmante  et epirituelle."   Almost until the day  him tolof her death this ancient dame played  J chess with the skill of a master."  The long tunnel from the Sunset  the Trade Dollar is completed.  This week's shipments from the  Whitewater amounted to 70 tons.  The London Hill property near Bear  Lake, owned by Kaslo parties, has been  bonded by. parties working at the min������,  over a year's-time, on the niontly pay:  ment plan of the ore receipts. ;   -  It is no secret that today the Sovereign  mine has one of the best showings in  the country���������eight feet of clean ore'all-  told; but the present low price of lead  will not allow the mine to be worked at  a profit as the ore runs 80 per cent lead.  Notice is given of an extraordinary  general meeting of the shareholders of  the Noble Five Consolidated Mining &  Milling Company, Limited, to be held  at Victoria, on Thursday, December.  5th, for the purpose of considering the  legal proceedings against the company  towards the foreclosing of the mortgage  covering the company's property, and  to take such steps in the matter as may  be deemed advisable.  A cablegram from the Whitewater  mine to London office:���������"During.last  month 4,900 tons have been milled, producing 483 tons" of concentrates.- Returns from the smelter amount to $9,250;  the working loss is .$45. This will include fire insurance; for the last half of  this year; also taxes on ore extracted  sincemonthipf;December. At present  the pre.pfo.duction is increasing; the  qualify is improving.

One car  of ore is ready for shipment and another  will be ready by the. end of the month. ���������  A shipmentof 20 tons which was made  to the Trail smelter last month gave net  returns of $1,200, and it is expected that  the next shipment will go high in  silver.

He.had.(12/men employed already, but  wanted" more.   There are 40 carloads  of heavy machinery and castings to be  shipped, and he is making good progress  having despatched sometimes Lwo cars  in a day.   Everything has to he hoisted  45 feet and some of the pieces weigh as  much as five tons.   There is an immense stock of pipe, steel, iron, etc.,  still  at the concentrator, and the hotel has  a quantity of crockery, kitchen ware,  and   bedding  in  it.   There   were   six  inches   of. snow  at Laurie when Mr.  Folliott left on'Sunday and there had  been two feet.���������Revelstoke Herald.   ���������  Sanson Ore Shipments.

But   It   Is   Only Done for a Very  Good Reason���������Some Curious   ���������  Cases.  Quite; recently an unfortunate man  named Kilbride died in Armlcy Gaol  and was buried at Bradford, Yorkshire. At the Lime of his death his  wife���������who ought to have profited by  her husband's riad experience���������was  serving a term of imprisonment in  the gaol 01* a neighboring town on a  charge of assault. In order that she  might attend the funeral of her husband she was specially released before the expiration of her sentence.  Not long ago  a  London surgeon���������  a    famous    specialist���������was    visiting,  with a number of friends, a prison in  the    north    of    England,    and    was i  shown a poor    fellow for whom the '  local medical man held out no hopes;  of recovery     The specialist sat down |  "by    the    bedside of tho prisoner and  made a good many inquiries respect- ���������  ing the internal  ailment from which ���������'  he was suffering,     and next day the  visitor attended the prison infirmary1  again    and     saw   two  of  the prison ,  doctors.       It was   then  arranged  to  make application to the proper    authorities    for    tho    release    of    the,  prisoner so that he might be remov- ',  ed to a hospital in London and  op- i  crated    upon by  tho surgeon    whoso .  chance'   visit to  the prison  , had re-,'  suited in his seeing tlie case.    In due ;  course permission for the removal of  IS the    invalid    arrived,    and    he was .  transferred  to a hospital,  where the  fact of his exact status was. not divulged.    The operation was performed, and the patient gained    strength  gradually,     and     after  being  hv the  hospital    for    eleven    weeks he was  deemed to be well enough for return  to his old quarters���������  THE PRISON CELL-   '  However, the specialist was a man of  soft heart as well as great skill, and  he signed a document which secured  for the man a term of three weeks'  residence in a convalescent home at  the seaside. By the time this term  , had expired the prisoner's sentence  was at an end, and after a journey  back to the prison to report, himself  he was formally discharged. It is  said the surgeon's goodness did not  end until he had been tho means of  getting the ex-gaol-bird honest employment.  A man named Robert Bridges was  some years ago sentenced to six  weeks' hard labor for poaching, and  had gone through nearly half his  time when the dead body of a woman  was found in a stream not very far  away from tho prison walls. For  some days the body remained unidentified, and it was thought that'  it would have to be buried and the  case be one more of many mysteries.  The governor of the prison, however,  received a visit from a gentleman, a  solicitor, who had journeyed from a  distant town ' at tho request of a  client, a bod-ridden old man. The  outcome of the visit was the temporary release of tho poacher in or-I  der tdallow of his viewing the body!  and of afterwards travelling to see  the bed-ridden old man. The prisoner duly returned to his cell,;-tiut his  circumstances were altogether'.'changed, for it transpired that by "tho  death of the woman, whom he had  identified, and by a certain voluntary action on the part of the bedridden old gentleman, he was now  the owner of the very property for  which he had been prosecuted for  trespassing upon in search of game. It  may be explained that the drowned  lady turned out to be the prisoner's  step-sister, and the bed-ridden old  gentleman his grandfather. The  deep grief of the lady, on discovering  that she had been the cause for her  brother's imprisonment, was the supposed reason of her suicide, and a  letter from her to the oldjiig'entleman  had resulted in the property being  made over to  ' THE NEW TENANT.  A man named Jack Sharp, one of  the most daring and clever steeplejacks of his day, was at one* time  serving a short term of imprisonment for some.small offence. During  .the    period that he was* in. durance  vile a terrific storm displaced a portion of th<s topmost brickwork of a  high chimney. Several steeplejacks  ��������� essayed to reach tho summit of the  stack, but owing to the violent continuance of tho storm they were one  and all unsuccessful: After much discussion on tlie part of the mill-o.wn-  crs, who were responsible for the  chimney, it was decidedito approach  tho magistrates and to obtain, if  possible, their permission to secure  the services of Jack Sharp in the interests of the public���������for the chimney  stood in the centre of a populous part of a busy little town,  where a downfall of bricks and mortar, from such a height as the top  of the chimney, would have meant  certain death t to anybody who  chanced to be hit by the falling debris. Many formalities had of necessity to be gone through, but eventually Jack was brought out.and offered the job of ascending the chimney.  Needless to say he accepted the risk  rather than remain where he had  been. He was, of course, to receive  a handsome "reward, and he. was to  have the command of a band of laborers. The tale of how he fought  with the wind and the driving rain,  and of how he was driven back time  after time, is still fresh within the  memory of a few persons'who are old  enough to remember the stirring  scene. Suffice it to say that Jack  and his helpers finally succeeded in  securing ropes about tho damaged  parts of the tall chimney, and that  in due course, when the storm had  subsided, they made a good job. of  it, much :to the relief of the mill-  owners, who from that day forward  had always a good word for the man  for whose release from gaol they successfully applied.

They are pur.ely  vegetable and guaranteed to contain  no  opiate or poisonous    drugs such  as form    the base of most so-called  "soothing"    medicines.      .For    sour  stomach,   colic,  simple fever,  constipation,  all  bowel troubles,  the  irritation    accompanying the cutting of  teeth,       sleeplessness     and     similar  symptoms,  these    Tablets    are without an equal.

Now,   this   is  all very true;   but the  question is what have (the Tribune and  its editor done in she past to cure it,  or  what are they doing even now to prevent this calamity?   It suggests an increased duty by the   Federal government on pig lead and its products; only  this and nothing more.   Now, anyone  with an ordinary intellect .knows that  anything that reduces  the. cost of producing a produet.helps to m a It e a profit  for   the owner aa well as that which  enhances its selling price.

The machinery for the Iron Horse has  arrived and it will not take long to  place it in position. All the outside  contracts at the mine are about completed, and then development will  commence. It is the intention to work  all the men there is room for, which  will be 15 at first. The shaft will'be  sunk 100 feet and then a crosscut run  west to the big-vein, as well as drift son  the smaller lead. There is considerable  capital in the treasury for development  purposes.  Frank Provost contemplates working  the North Star group this winter.  There are seven claims in the group,  situated to the east end of .Dayton  creek, and owned by himself and W. F.  Dubois.  The lessees of the Exchange on Dayton creek have 10 tons of oie sacked for  shipment and it will go forward as soon  as rawhiding permits. Some magnificent are is being broken down. A  sample went $68,40 in gold and 247  ounces in silver.  Sid Norman has bonded the Transfer  group, situated on the divide to the  south of the Arlington. The bond is  $40,000, and runs one year, with a  certain amount of work to be done each  month. The first payment is to be  , made in six months.  Ore shipmeuta lell to a low ebb last  week owing to the exceedingly bad  condition of the'ioada. The Arlington  only sent out GO tons and the Fourth of  July five tons, the second shipment  from this property this season. A carload shipment will be made by the  Enterprise this week. ��������� -  Wedding Presents Lost.  Mr. W. F. Dubois, late manager of  tha Arlington inine at Slocan, married  at the time when people ware dishonest.  When returning from his wedding trip  with his wife (Miss Laura Hammond)  on the fifth inst., all of their wedding  ,-presents, some of' which .were . very  costly, and a sum of money, were either  stolen from them or mysteriously disappeared. /On reaching Slocan they  overlooked taking with them a tan  colored dress suit case, three feet long  containing the valuables, and nothing  has been heard of it since. His name  was engraved on tlie lock of the case.  The case, it is said, was seen in the car  after every passenger had got out.  Among other valuables it contained a  Rogers' ware chocolate service; a three-  leafed clover waiter, a sterling- silver  crumb tray and brush; a silver carving  knife and fork, and a wallet, containing $50 in American money. On  account of these being presents, these'  goods are of especial value to Mr. and-  Mrs. Dubois, and anyone who can throw  light on their whereabouts, will be  suitably rewarded.

From the  A representative of the Citizen recently learned of a remarkable cure  of a well-known resident of Ottawa  who has suffered for years with a  terrible affliction. The well-known resident is Mr. S. A. Cassidy, and the  affliction was stone in the kidneys.

To-day he is a well man. Tie has  found a remedy that has banished  the disease���������a remedy that has cured  where ' medical aid' was ineffectual.  Tho remedy is Dodd's Kidney Tills,  and Mr. Cassidy feels so elated over-  his release from the excruciating suffering that, he has given the following statement over his own signature to a well-known Ottawa newspaper man.

At the initial stage of the disease he was taken with violent cramps in the left  side of his stomach, and the best  skilled physicians could afford him  very little relief. The attacks were  of about two weeks'    duration,  and  lime ago a. friend of mine told me  tha.t Dodd's Kidney Pills would cure  mc. ��������� As a last resort I tried them  anil they have cured mc.

After their conflict with China a  few years ago the Japanese erected  a monument to the memory of the  horses killed in battle. The Duke of  Wellington built one at Strathfield-  saye, where his famous charger Copenhagen died.  The height of Farley Mount, not  far from Winchester, is crowned with  an obelisk erected to a horse buried  there. The name of tho animal was  Beware Chalk-Pit, this cognomen  having been bestowed on .account of'  the fact that the horse 'during a  hunt jumped into a chalk-pit, 20ft.  deep, with its master on its back.  The obelisk is a. landmark for many  miles around.  The mention of this horse as  hunter recalls the fact that at San-  diway. in Cheshire, there is a-monument to another animal of th������������������ chase.  ���������a foxhound. Bliiccap was his  name, and its exploits were the  theme of songs which are not yet  forgotten, though 120 years have  passed since the hound died. The  obelisk was erected by the late Hon.  A.  H.  Smith-Barry.  At Edinburgh is a statue of Grey  Friars Bobby, a dog which knew  Sundays from week-days. Every  night for thirteen years that dog  slept, on his  masters  grave  in  Grey  Friars' Churchyard, being provide  with a dinner each day, except .Sundays, by the proprietor of ' a neighboring restaurant. The wonderful  part of the story is that Bobby every week saved part of his Friday's  and Saturday's dinner for his Sabbath meal. Baroness Burdett-Coutta  raised the statue and tho marble  fountain on which it stands in 1872.  There are other monuments ��������� to  famous dogs. One of the most interesting is that in the grounds of  Newstead Abbey to Lord Byron's  Boatswain. It bears the following  inscription: "Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who*.possessed beauty without vanity,  strength without insolence,: courage  without ferocity, and all the virtues  of-man without his vices. This  praise, which would bo-unmeaning  flattery if inscribed over human ashes, is "a just tribute to the memory  of Boatswain."-  MINIATURE SHEEP.  ��������� The very smallest of all the kinds  of sheep is the tiny Breton sheep.  It is too small to be very-profitable  to raise, for, of course, it cannot  have much wool, and, as for eating,  why, a hungry man could consume  almost a whole sheep at a meal. It  is so small when full-grown that it  caii hide behind a good-sized bucket.  It takes its name from the part of  France where it is most raised.

Last    Year's    Terrible     Total    ol*  Killed  and  Injured.  - A gruesome tale of death and  maiming is unfolded by the new  Board of Trade return of railway accidents during 1900, says the London Daily Mail.  One in every 13 shunters employed  on" our railways suffered some .sort  of' injury, yet automatic couplings  are; still the exception rather than  the rule. Of all the railway men,  the shunter's life is most in jeopardy. Last year 136 men were killed,  and 2,610 injured while so engaged.  Thei year's toll upon the lives and  limbs of all railway servants was  583 killed and 4,585 injured. Tho  most perilous occupation after the  shunter's is the brakesman's and the  goods-guard's. Of these, one in every seventeen was injured. Among  the men killed and injured otherwise  than by the movement of vehicles,  there was a death total of 631,  while 15,698 were injured.  The passenger's peril is slight by  comparison. Out of 1,000,000,000  journeys undertaken by railway  traveller,1?���������and this is exclusive of  season ticket-holders, who numbered  l.VoO.OOO in 1900, and must havo  taJccn between them many millions of journeys���������only sixteen terminated fatally. Twelve of the lives  were lost in the Slough and Glasgow accidents. The passengers injured numbered 863. But, taking  (he killed and injured from all  causes, and not from accidents to  trains only, there were 135 killed  and 2,426 injured.  Taking servants, passengers, trespassers, suicides, and everybody on  or about the railways, there is a total sacrifice during the year of 1,~  .325 lives and 19,572 limbs, or parts  "of.the same.

As-a'stout, florid man, with a silk  hat on the back of his head, pushed  open the gate, and went wearily up  the stone path to the front door, the  pale face at' the window brightened,  and a thin hand flashing with rings  . was waved.  The stout man let himself in with  a latchkey, and the woman met him  at the door.  "How is she?" he asked, in a husky whisper.  "A little better," answered the woman, helping him oil with his dust-  coat. Both the hat and the dustcoat  were of a very pronounced pattern,  and calculated to attract attention,  and the man carried a satchel slung  over his shoulder by a strap. Both  strap and satchel were labelled "Billy Greene," in big gold letters.  "I'll go up and see her," whispered  Billy Greene, in the same husky way.  "Lost    your     voice,   haven't  dear?" asked the woman.  Her husband nodded.    >.  "So'd you, my dear, if-you'd  shouting the  odds   on a  course  since one to-day," he said.  Sitting on . the last stair, he removed'his bools, and, stepping very  lightly considering his bulk went up  to a room on the first floor. A  sheet, soaked in some acrid smelling  disinfectant, was hung over the door  and the room was almost bare of furniture. Carpets, curtains, and  knick-knacks had been removed, and  the apartment had a monastic austerity. On a small bed in the middle  of the floor lay a child of about seven, her fever-bright eyes fixed on  the ceiling. ;  "How are you, love?" said the big  man, sitting on one corner of the  bed.        ��������� v  The child looked at him listlessly,  nnd turned away with an impatient  moan. The man's face was troubled;  and after hovering" about the bed  with a few clumsy words of tenderness and cheer, he tipfed out.  A    red-hot    steak and a bottle of  Bass awaited him in the room below.  "Had a good day?" asked his wife,  loaning    fondly    on the back of his  chair as he ate.  "Can't      grumble,"      said     Billy  Greene cheerfully.     "Only one favor-  fu; won.    Feel.the weight of that."  The woman weighed the satchel, in  ���������her hand, and an "Oh!"    of pleased  surprise escaped her.  "We might .be able to take Ruby  away when she's better," she said.  "The sea air would do the child a  world o' good." -;  "So it would;'.' assented her husband. "She shall go' by all means."  "She's been worryin' for daddy's  tick-tick' all "day," said Mrs. Greene.  "She is fairly mad after that watch  of yours." ��������� ������  Her husband laughed, and put his  hand to his waistcoat pocket,  denly his face changed from its usual  healthy ruddiness to a dull purple,  his eyes were fixed, and, though his  lips moved, no words came for a  space.  "What     ever's : the  you?" cried his wife.  "The    hounds!"    ho  last.       "They've    Been  They've got it."  "Not your watch?"

"I will, too, if it costs me fifty  quid!" cried Billy Greene, banging  his big fist oa the table. "Get me a  cab."  "Where are you going?" demanded  his wife, with, some anxiety.  "Never you mind, my dear," retorted the bbpkmaker darkly, "I  kaow where to go."  Greene stood  big West i'Jnd  An hour later Billy  in the promenade of a  music-hall. The usual motley crowd  strolled backwards and forwards,  with the .usual bored. listless look.   ,  Billy Greene leant against the par-  titution dividing the circle from the  promenade, with his broad back  squarely to the stage. He was  watching the shifting crowd with his  keen little eyes. He had not changed his dress, and his boots were  white with the dust of the racecourse.  Presently a tall, slim man iii evening  dress   strolled  up   to  him.     The j  "Get- to know forme,  said quietly, and . meet  there in an hour's time."

Let's tell him,  and have one at tho same time."  Greene assented. And they walked  into    the    Ions-,  crowded bar,  where  The man' called. Frank���������he'��������� was  .known by a. variety of other names-  sat over his coffee and liqueurs in a  restaurant not far from the Hay-  market. He was feeling at peace  with himself and ull the world, for  tho dinner had been an excellent one,  and he had reckoned, with satisfaction, that tho next one would be  eaten iu Paris, and paid for out of  Billy Greene's fifty pounds. From  time to tiine he caressed a small  package in the inside pocket, of- his  well-cut frock-coat.  The swing-doors were hurriedly  pushed open and Billy Greene came  in. He dropped heavily into a chair  opposite Frank.  His face was blotched with white  and red, aud he breathed hard in his  excitement.  "Well," he said, in a vibrating  voice,  "have you got it?"  "What a hurry you're in!" smiled  the other.  He drew out (he small packet and  placed  it in Greene's   Mi and,     which  trembled with  Billy Greene  from a.  large,  bloated turnip  eagerness.  tore off the wrappings  clumsy  watch,   of the  order.  was   consplcu-  and    general  had  and  and  His  the man they sought  .' ous by his loud voice  j behavior.  j    Jack.Leroy  was  about  the    same  age as the man called Frank.

"I'd give fifty quid to get that  watch back," said Greene to the  man called Frank, just before they  got within earshot of Leroy.  Frank took the latter aside, and  the faces of the two men were soon  serious and absorbed, while the 'band  crashed ' out a rattling Sousa's  march, and the crowd of promenad-  ers drifted listlessly hither and thither. Greene, drumming impatiently  with his fingers on the counter, woiw  dercd what they were arranging.  "What'll he spring?" asked Leroy,  in a low tone.  His companion looked hard at him  with his clear, honest blue eyes.  "Twenty," ho said quietly.*''  "I'm on it!" said Leroy, with decision.  II.  The owner of the restored property  drew a deep, slow breath.- He fried  to speak, but could not. The' man  opposite lit a. cigar.  Billy Greene silently counted out  fifty pounds in notes, and- pushed  them across the table.  '���������'Thanks, old chap," said Frank,  pocketing ihem. "This little lot  fills a  long-felt     want. T  hadn't  enough in my pocket to pay for ihe  dinner I've been eating till vou came  in."  He extracted one note for ten  pounds from amongst it's rustling  companions and put it into an envelope. Across the envelope he  scrawled "J. Leroy, Esq."

Miss    Catherine    iUcLeilan     is .  a  young lady well known in Charlotte-  town, l^.E.L,     and greatly esteemed  among her acquaintances.      Like ��������� so  many other young people throughout  the J and, Miss jVloLellan fell  a     victim,    to    anaemia,     or    poorness of  blood,   and  although  several     medicines  were tried,  sho found     nothing  to     help her until she began     using  Dr.  Williams'     Pink Pills for     Pale  People.     Aliss    Mc'Lellan    tells     the  story of her illness, a.s follows  :���������"1'  am now eighteen years of age,   ' and  for a. considerable time suffered much  from    anapiniu.      My blood had ^-almost  (urned     to  water,  and    I. 'wis '  very weak and  pale :  in fact     could ���������  not undergo  the, least, exertion.     My.-,  appetite    failed me :  I suffered from .  headaches ; if 1 .slopped  f would   become dizzy, and frequently  1  suffered  from  fainting spells.    I   tried several  kinds  of medicine and  doctors     prescribed  for me, .but instead  of     getting   better  J   was   gradually    growing weaker,  and eventually had  ', to  discontinue going lo school.

Turning up a narrow, ill-paved  passage, he pushed' open the swing  door of a public house, and peered  in. In one corner sat a thin, young  man, with a cloth cap at .Ihe'..back  of his head, spelling over a sporting  paper ��������� with the aid of a dirty forefinger.  Jack    caught   'his eye, and gave a  scarcely perceptible jerk of tho head.  The     thin    young     man     instantly  c;ucl_ ! sprang up, and followed him out into the passage.  "Look here, Joe," said Leroy,  "could you do with a.fiver?"  "Could a duck swim?" retorted  Joe.  "Well,     old    Billy Greene had  his  clock taken on the course yesterday,  at,and he wants it back."  "Who's got it, then?"  "Some of the boys, of course."  "They never have!-' cried Joe violently. "None of the boys would  touch old Billy Greene. They respect him too much. Why, they respect that man like���������like steam!"  concluded Joe lamely.  "Turn it up, Joe!" said Leroy  kindly. "None of your funny business with mc. There's a fiver for  you if the watch is found, without  any waiting in the office either:"  Joe rubbed his unshaven chin, and  looked undecidedly up and down the  passage.  "Honest, Injun, I don't know who's  got it," he said at last, in an exasperated manner. "Why don't, you  believe a bloke?"  Leroy looked steadily at him;  "Hi, boss, give us gold for this,  will you?" shouted Jack Lexoy to  the proprietor of the bar wherein he  had found Joe of the unshaven chin.  The man could do nothing quietly.  His voice, his manner and his dress  were loud. This led people to regard  him as a jolly, frank, open-heturted  fellow. \  The landlord took the proffered  note, scrutinized it sharply, and presently returned with a little pile of  sovereigns.  From this pile Jack Leroy selecl'.ed  two, which he pushed along the  counter to   Joe. ; ������������������'  "There you are,, my hearty!" h.e  said genially. -  "No swank now!", said Joe hotly.

A Close-Down at the Queen Bess.  The Queen Bess mine has been closed  down this week, and the entire staff of  men were given their time and cheques.  It is supposed that the mine will not be  shut for any length of tithe, but will  resume operations shortly. This was  occasioned by not reciving satisfactory  orders from the London office.  The fourth .general meeting  of  the  company was held at London on October 29,'and tha   secretary  presented  the  following  statement,   the  figures  only coming up to March 31stlast:   The  revenue account shows that during the  year the ore sales realized ������17,682, out  of which sum part was stock in hand.  The realization of ore actually mined  during the year amounted to ������15,537;  and as this represents only just over  1,000 tons of ore, you will gather from  that how very rich the ore we mine is.  The result has been a gross profit of  ������5,891, which is carried to the general  account, and against which are chare-ed  the expenditure in British  Columbia,  ������3.162; the depreciations  written  off,  ������498; and the London office expenses,  ������1,088; so that it leaves a net profit of  ������1,471, as atrainst that of the previous  year ol ������726, showing a great improvement  as far as that goes.   After adding  the balance brought forward from the  previous year, it shows ������1,900  to dispone of.   The directors propose to write  ofTirom the development account ������1,500  carrying over ������400 odd,   the balance.  The balance sheet shows that the creditors have  greatly   increased  on   one  side, going up from ������2,000, roughly, to  ������4,300; and on the other side the cash  is considerably reduced.  The Queen Bess will work all winter  by the parties who have leases on some  of the workings of the mine. Mr.  Woakes, the manager, will go to London in December to consult with the  directors . there, and it will then be  decided upon what plans the property  will be worked.  The Report Untrue.  ���������Geo. Carney, the eldest son of Judge  Carney, of Kaslo, was instantly killed  last Tuesday morning on the new Fry  creek wagon road. By some means  which probably will never be known the  powder magazine exploded and he was  blown to atoms. Carney was engaged  in getting some powder for use on the  road work, and- by some means must  have set off the contents of the magazine. Several cases went off, causing  a terrific explosion and his body -was  scattered in pieces.  Blown to Atoms.  It is not true as reported in the  gulchite last week thattheearth portion  of the proposed foundation for the.  Payne gave way and slid down the hill  as a result of hydraulic working. The  facts are that in prosecuting work Mr.  Garde found the cribbing of the K. & S.  so far decayed that he thought it better  to discard earth foundation altogether  and excavate the Bolid rock until he got  a rock foundation for both railway and  'concentrator at that point. Both will  now be built like the church of old, on  solid rock, and will stand any test that  may ever come from any quarter. The  fact is the gulchite never wants the  truth when fibs tickle him more.  A band of Skagway and Dawson want  to make the Yukon an independent republic.   Good shot for "Fennie."
