Tin-1 following account from the Lon  don Times   of the  ,'jnvalry  charge   a(  the action of Lnndik.ii,   in   the  Swat  ' valley, will be read with interest;  While  the artillery  were shelling the  position, occupied by the tribesmen; and  the turning movement of General Mei-  klcjohn's briuado was being completed  the Guides' cavalry  wore  waiting   near  .    the fool of the hill for an opportunity to  move forward.   When the enemy broke  the Guides mside their way along  a nar-'  row causeway  leading into the plain of  Landikai.    By the time that the head of  the  leading squadron   had emerged  on  the plain tho enemy  were already more  than :t mile away in full retreat   towards  the shelter  which they knew,  was to be  found in the distant hills.   The pursuers  started   without   a  moment's delay, determined to overtake   tlie fugitives  before they had taken  refuge   where cavalry would be fumble to punish   them;  and   as   they   advanced    the   squdi-on  gradually strung out^ tha. best mounted  forging ahead,   and * the   sowars  being  gradually   outpaced.      Captain   Palmer  and   Lieutenant Greaves   maintained   a  strong lead, closely followed   by Colonel  Adams and   Lord Fincastle,  and  as the  enemy were approached  Colonel Adams  pushed   on farther   in order   to   direct  Captain Palmer to keep to his left and  take shelter in  a clump of trees,  which  stands some 50 yards   fiom   tlie foot   of  the  hill   where   the  enemy had   taken  refuge.  Unfortunately this order was unheard  by Captain Palmer, and he and Greaves  rode straight   into   the   small knot   of  tribesmen   who  were still on   the plain,  under "a  very heavy fire  from  those  on  the hill.   Poor Greaves was shot almost  instantly, anil fell   to the- ground,   and  Colonel Adams   and   Lord Fincastlo at  -pnee dashed in   to rescue him  from the  Ghazis,  who   were  hacking* with   their  bwords at his prostrate body.

This,  among  other reasons, led me to'conclude that the mustard gold in a mine'here is an  indication of the presence of teiluride of gold  at a depth,   The greater quantities   of  the'gold ores in.Kalgoorlie field  carry  mustard gold, and in most cases teiluride of gold has already been  found,- in  man}' cases very rich and in solid hard  country. , I mention   those   mines   in  which I have already proved   the  pre-  . ���������������oo= imcc ran! are now   the   routes  MUSTARD GOLD RESEMBLING CLAY. | of railways, the last to be  made  being  the one up the Sloean river, the easiest  of the'ot.

The government laid out a town  on an extensive flat at the   mouth   of  Carpenter creek and called it New Denver.   But, the eager crowd, only happy  at the very mouth  of the   mine,   has  squeezed itself into Sandon.   In spite  of her distance from the mines, Nelson,  thanks to the energy of her merchants,  benefitted largely by the newly opened  district, and was proportionally injured  by the "slump" in silver in 1893. ������    '  For a time the fall in   the   price   of  her staple commodity almost paralyzed  Kootenaj7,  but her people   were   not  of the sort to be knocked   out \.at   one  blow.

The Rio Tinto Mining   Company  of  Spain, which owns the greatest copper  property in the world, is also the leal  owner of a most   valuable   group  of  mines on  Pyramid creek,' in this district, says the Fort Steel Prospector.  The claims number 14 in all, and on  sever il   of   them, good   development  work has   been   done.   At one place  there is  a dump   of silver-copper ore  valued at $5000, and a force of 40 men  are now at work.   Next year a six-drill  air compressor is to be put in, and pre-  perations are already made to receive  it.   The   camp   on Pyramid  creek is  properly tributary "to Fort Steel, but on  account of  the   trail   up St.   Mary's-  river being practically  impassible for  packs nearly all the supplies have so-  far been taken iu via Pilot Bay trail-  To get, in that way the Selkirk .divide  has to be crossed,  an ardous job  that  would be Wholly oblivated if the St.  Mary's   trail   were  in   shape.       The  Pyramid Company intend next year-to  use the St. Mary's trail to bring in their  compressors and other materials,  bat  a great deal  of work will need to be  done before it can be used.   The company, wc are informed, is  asking  bids  for a wagon road from the headwaters .  of Pyramid creek accross  to the upper  reaches of Matthew creek, thence down  that creek   to   its  junction with   St.  Mary's river.   This will be a comparatively  easy   route,  and  with  the   St.  Mary's wagon road in good  condition  there will be n good line of communication  established  between  thin city  and tiie Pyramid camp.

In our issue of last week we quoted  the   annual output of gold   the  world  :, over at $35,000,000   and  stated   that  to realize the fond dreams of the.gold  ���������bugs���������the displacment of the four and  ���������a. half billions of silver now in circula-  h'on by gold���������it would take   128 years  of prospecting and producing even if  all the gold mined went into coin; but,'  as at least one half of it goes into   the  arts,   if rhi  commerce   of the ;world  stood still   it would take   at least   250  years to realize the-expectations,of the  gold bugs.    It appears   reasonable to  believe there  is sufficient sound, common sense among  the business men of  Great   Britain,  to  remain   no ' longer  . blind to this  circumstance and allow  the gold bugs to play ducks and drakes  with the money system of the world.  But this is not all. Many of England's most, prominent colonies are  'large producers of silver, giving employment to a large number of miners.  Are the, dreams of the nionied few of  Mother Country to be allowed to  pauperize the hundreds of thousands'  ���������of miners, and the institutions depending on silver mining for their existence  and prosperity ? Besides all this  again India is a great consumer of  silver and her mints must again be  opened or the colonies will become  estranged from the Mother Country.  Can the statesmen of England stand  blind to these facts to meet the wishes  of the monied few of old England ?  These are facts that it appears to the  ordinary observer should arouse the  consideration of the statesmen and  the commercial community of the  Mother Country and set them fully at  thinking.

There was.  absolutely nothing on the body to show  who or what   he  might, have been, so  we decided to  call   him an  optimist  and let.it go at that."  ���������"I-understiind that your husband returned from Klondyke last night, Mrs.  furnigan,". said tbe inquisitive villager.

F. H. Strong Makes the Trip From  Vancouver to Dawson in Less  Than Two Months. .  - After some remarkable experiences  and hair-breadth escapes one of the  passengers who leit by the Coquitlam,  . on her first trip to Dyea, leaving here  pa August 8th, is again in Vancouver,  having made an exceptionally quick  trip to Dawson City and ' return. He  is F. H. Strong and his partner who  made the trip with him were T. J. Collins and J. Marshall. In an interview  he gaveja detail of his experiences and  told an interesting story of bis quick  trip.  . ��������� "'  ''We landed at Dyea on August 14th,  said Mr. Strong," "and started packing  for a party, rates then being from 12 to  40 cents per poun'l. We went over the  Dyea trail, Which, I beliovg   js  much  Through''the persistency and eloquence ''of Secretary Seward, who  struggled against public opinion for  years, Alaska was pure'msed from  Russia by tlie United States for $7,200,-  000. This vast territory, that became  one of the possessions of tho United  States at the cost of two cents per acre,  comprises 1,000 miles from north to  south,; tho archipelago contains 1,100  islands, and the whole area covers 5S0,-  107 square miles.  Notwithstanding  that revenue from  tbe fur trade and the fisheries brought  the United States  an increased income  of 92,000,000 a year,   Americans continued   to look upon  the purchase  of  Alaska ns a mistake���������"Seward's folly,"  it was called, but Seward himself considered it   the most notable achievement of his  official career.   At a public dinner given hjni  upon retiring  to  private  life,, the epiestion   was put to  him as to what he considered the most  important act  of his. public life.   He  unhesitatingly replied,   "Tbe purchase  of Alaska";   then,   after   a' moment's  pause, he added, "But it may take two  generations  bpfore the purchase is appreciated."   It is doublful, however, if,.  in  his mont  sanguine moments,   Mr.  Seward foresaw that thirty years later  Alaska     would   become   a   new     El  Dorado.���������Metropolitan Magazine.  ���������'DRESS'AND-:  ; JANTU MAKING  a     ��������� "    *  At reasonable rates, and on the shortest notice.
