 ���������-d  VOL. 4.���������NO  SANDON, ,B. C, SEPTEMBER 20, 1000.  Tlie Conservative Platform  Adopted at Revelstoke.  We, the delegates of (lie Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo constituency in convention assembled, re-aflinri  the principles of the old party, and more  particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home industries, and that that  principle he carried out fo that all sections'of the country shall equally share-  its benefits.  The one industry on which the pros-  peritv of this constituency is almost  wholly dependent is mining; and we  believe that our mining industries ureas  fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing interests of Eastern Canada;  therefore we-advocatetliat the.duties on  lead and lead products be increased so  that they shall be as high as those now  imposed bv tlie United States on the  same articles.  That the output of the precious metal  of mines of Canada is largely increasing,  therefore, we favor the establishment of  $2.00 PER YEAR.  speciein circulation  a mint, so that the  shall be that of our own  instead of that  of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the  immigration of Chinese and Japanese  and all classes of people who cannot become good-citizens' of the Dominion ol  Canada, and suggest the adoption of the  principles of the .Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the Federal Parliament  that she i.s entitled to; therefore, we  advocate that when the redistribution of  seats is made that this constituency  shall be given representation according  to its population  lhe ..uccesi ol  tions   in   almost   every   mine    around  Sandon, and tlie proposal to undertake a  large amount of new work, the outlook  for the Slocan was never as bright as it  is   today.    Conditions   throughout  the  district are excellent.   Themines around  Sandon are cither working, or are lo resume shortly, and ' new exploration and  an increased   output   are   planned   for  many others, while  prospects are being  opened  up  successfully.   This   district  has   proved  of such   undoubted   value  that capital  is coming in readily, and  there is little difficulty in getting work-  ins funds.   In Sandon itself there is the  greatest activitv consequent on  tlie rebuilding of the town.    Kaslo also is feeling the effects of the revival.   The many  recent strikes  in  the Lardeau-Duncan  district, and the activity in development  work there, are irreatly aiding the business in the town."   That is a better note  than the despondency of the past year.  The same cheering news comes: in from  all directions���������restored confidence and  active preparations  for the resumption  of business on a larger scale than ever.  Conservatives Nominate McNeil.  The Conservatives, in convention at  Revelstoke on.Saturday, nominated Mr.  McNeil, of Rossiand, a lawyer, as their  candidate. The old line parties have  now a lawyer each of mediocre ability in  the field, and it remains for the future  to show what they will do with them.  HINES AND niNING.  A Coining Fight.

That the officers of such association  shall consist of a president, a first vice-  president, a secretary, a treasurer, ami a  district organizer. It is also provided  that every president of a local association within this electoral district, shall  ex-offieib be a vice-president, of this  organization.  .

This, from the'-Tribune, is  the first gun :  "James Wilks has taken the Minor  info hi? confidence, and he tells that  subsidy-hunting newspaper that the  Labor party will have a candidate in the  field.

Work'has been re-commenced on the  Howard Fraction.  The Eugene mine paid out ,$27,323 to  employees in August.  The Venus mine has turned out a gold  brick valued at $1200.  The Whitewater mine shipped 12714  tons of ore for the week.  The Sovereign will soon be ready fo  double the force to 30 men.  The Slocan-Kilo Co. are taking a bond  on the Monday, at Silverton.  The Highland Boy, at Ainsworth, is  erecting a 150 ton concentrator.  The Hewett, near Silverton, has struck  ore in the lower tunnel at a depth of 320  feet.  The Warner-Miller Co. have taken a  bond on the Black Prince on Springer  Creek.  The Ajax Fraction people have taken  down supplies to push work on the  Monitor.  The Silver King has fifty men at work  and is now doing nicely. It is installing  new machinery.  Sandon ore shipments this week were:  Pavne, 120; Last Chance, HO; Ruth, 40;  Slocan St.ir 60.'- Total, 339 tons.  The Silvertonian speaks highly of the  Smuggler on Ten Mile. P. McGuire,  late of the 'Noble Five, is foreman. It  has over 1,200 feet of underground working. They have found some 800 oz.  silver.  Mr. W. S. jDreury is confident they  have a very large institution iu that  Crawford Bay property. He, says the  ledge has great width, and can be traced  for miles with a profuse distribution of  of ore as a surface showing.  To listen to the old-time party leaders  when   elections   are   approaching,   one  would think the old fire still remained,  and nothing but their old party couid  succeed.   People are all more or less selfish, and that selfishness developes feelings and prejudices that break off' the  forces of all party lines.   In the'east the  tariff'is the main question  that divides  public sentiment.   In the west there are  many serving the same end, and as a result, to use a vulgarism, knocking the  old parties "into a cocked hat." Whether wheat or other agricultural products  are  protected or not,  or whether   the  duties are raised or lowered on agricultural implements,  though constituting  the  topics, on  which two-thirds,of the  polilical powder is burned in tlie east,  are matters of but infinitely small concern  in this province.    Asa result an  eastern political orator has   but little  force in the west, where not surrounded  by late arrivals  from  the eastern provinces.   To our mind then a clever man  disposed to take an independent view of  all matters  political and well versed in .  tho requirements   of   this  province, is  ever certain to poll a very large vote, To  us it is a matter of no great concern who  all  enter  the Jield in the coming campaign, provided they know British Columbia is not all of Canada, and that  our entire population is not limited to  one class, that our interests  are to some  extent identical with those of the whole  of Canada, and  that we have  a mixed  population, every section of which is entitled to equal .consideration.

When buffalos could be found within half a day's ride, from almost any  ranch in tho great plains, and killing  half a dozen in a day was no particular feat, tho most exciting sport  was to diva into a herd with well-  trained cattle-roping horses and  bring out one. or more yearling heifers for tho purpose of raising them  among tho tame cattle on tho ranch.  It was dangerous sport, for the en-  tiro herd would unilo with the greatest  ferocity  to defend  th'e calves.  A cutting-out horse-, that was also  accustomed to the lasso, was the first  essential in an equipment. Strong  hair ropes, heavy revolvers and sharp I  hunting knives were tho next things  in the. sportsmen's  outfit.

The bulls  with lowered heads and eyes liko  coals of fire came bellowing upon the  showman. A cannon could hardly  have been , heard ovor their'roars.  With great pluck ho got to his knees  and fired both his revolvers at the  foremost animal. The bull's legs  gave way under him, but hia tremendous momentum throw his body forward and knocked the showman  senseless several yards away. The  horse dodged tho lowered heads   and  their  ho was standing and called the familiar signal. Tho trained animal  came toward him at full speed, He  sprang into the saddle and dashed  away after Lhe pursuing herd. He  was soonf iu the midst'of the roaring  animals, firing his Winchester and  revolvers asi fast as he could -pull the  triggers. Tho hoz*d became terror-  stricken and in a panic plowed  straight across tho plains. The flying, horseman : in front, being no; longer pursued, turned his horse out of  tho road of the fleeing mass and in a  fow minutes joined his companion.  Together they wont to look for the  showman. ��������� They/found him near the  buffalo he had; killed, crushed',' to  death. >J  HEART PALPITATION.  ered iii the run to the herd, tho cow  must bo shot down, and the. calf lassoed; tangled, thrown, hoppled, and  tlie drug rope tied to its neck, all  in time for the horsemen to mount  tiLoLr horses and got safely away before the infuriated bulls could respond  to  the cries of the calf.  Wheal there was no ravino; or hill  from which tho animals could bo approached, the hunters could usually  approach' within easy shooting distance by crawling , up after their  horses, who were caused to feed toward the herd. The first stamp or  snort of a bull was the signal for the  hunters to spring upon,their horses  and make a dasih at the selected vie-,  tims.  -PITCHED  FROM  HIS  HORSE.  Early in the eighties a venturesome buyer for a noted menagerie  lost his life through a trivial mis-  bap whilo endeavoring to assist two  experienced men in roping' calves for  hia show. Ai'score of bulls, twice a a  many cows and a dozen or more  calves were found far out oin the open  prairie. '��������� It took an hour to come  within shooting distance by. the slow  process of creeping through the grass  after the feeding horses. Still the  old  another's way. None-of them could  turn upon the enemy and have the  room in which to make a charge.  There was an instant of confusion  and then one of the bulls made a leap  foi* tluet horse. Al shot from tie hunter killed the animal, but not before  the bull had struck the imprisoned  koireo with such! force as to knock  him, ovor upon hid side. He began '  to scream with7 pain and fear. His  cries immediately attracted the at-  dozen bulls sprang upon him, tramp-'  ling and goring him to death. The  man was now in the midst of the  grinding heard. Several " shots at  close quarters made him a temporary  bulwark of shaggy bodies, around  which the heard roared and surged.  COMPANION'S RUSE SAVED HIM.  Presently there was heard the  shrill scream of a calf 50 yards or  more beyond the .woollymass. Its  pathetic ories arose above all the bellowing of, furious bulls. There was  a sudden pause in, the surging mass  and a silence through which- the  wails of the calf oame with startling  distinctness. The bulls raised their  heads over one another's backs. Tho  pause was only for a moment. With)  one fierce, deafening roar, all heads  leader, ��������� a ponderous,    bull,  who j were   turned  in  the  direction of  the  stood as sentinel and guard upon a  littio mound around which his flock  was feeding, remained immovable as a  statue.  Nearer and nearer the horses  -j. . ���������  fed until, within 50 yards, when a  whiff of scent-laden air seemed to  strike the bull's nostrils, warning him  of impending danger.; His head at-.  onco began to sway back and forth,  he sounded a low, deep bellow otj  warning and began, to paw the sand  elowly as ho gazed at, tho three  horses!  "Now !" exclaimed one of the hunters. Two Winchesters, were leveled  and in a moment two cows fell be-  bM������ their calves. The three men  sprang into their saddles and before  the amazed herd could respond to tho  call of tho sentinel bull two lassos  cut the air and circled the shoulders  of tho. bellowing calves.  The  horse    of   the  showman    was  cry for help and tho earth'seemed to  tremble under the terrific charge. The  imprisoned hunter sprang upon one of  the bodies as tho cordon of animals  broke away and saw that Ms companion hunter had saved him by a strate-  gem that was effective but full of  peril. He had caught, a yearling and  wound it up in his iropo so as fo make  it utter the loudest calls for help.  When he had succeeded in drawing  tho attack upon himself he cut the  ropo and mounted his horse barely 20  feet in front of tho foremost bull. A  single misstep of his horse and both  would have,been trampled and gored  to death. With the instinct of a raoo  for life, the horse sped on) beforo the  roaring   boasts.  The hunter that had just escaped.  death "by this .strategem saw the showman's hourse feeding 100 yards away.  Ho sprang from, the carcass on which  A: SUGGESTION TO THE INTENDING  TRiAVELLER.  Ethel Ramsey gives somo suggestions which though intended primarily for those going abroad are pertinent to those who travel at home. A  felw of  her  oibservatiohs  follow:  "Persons who are traveling on a  deifLnite and limited sum" of., money  should as far as possible know what  their expenses will probably be and  shou.Id allow as margin at least one-  fifth of the, whole sum. A simple way  to perform this calculation is to plan  the projected trip, aind find tho actual  cost of transportation., When the  margin has been subtracted from the  original sum, and afterward the transportation, divide the remainder, by the  num'iber of days to bo spent abroad,  to know what is left for a daily  allowance. This sounds like elementary ; arithmetic, but traveling under the most favora.blo conditions ia  very tiring aud every effort toward  convenience is worth while., Tho systematic arrangement of money matters is a perceptible help; oiu knowa  exactly what' to expect, and avoids  the unpleasantness of a sudden panic  lest funds will uot hold out.  "A difficulty which the guide-book  does not help is the attempt to share  expenses whon two or three persons  are traveling together. Ah excellent plan which we found saved us  muoh timo and temper w-a3 the use  of a common purse, which was handed  to the head; arithmetician and spokesman of the party. Each of us put Into  the purse an equal amount.calculat-  ed to last during the day, on( excursion, and divided whatever was left  over when one of the party left us,  or when we wished to make up our individual accounts. Instead of disputing each time whose turn it was  to pay for tickets, or trying to divide  a fee of four cents among five persons, it was all-done from, the common  fund and entered, as a sum total for  the  day's   expenses," :..   *:  This idea of a common' purse, where  two or. three or more persons 'are  traveling together and- each paying  ht3 or her own expenses, seems arn admirable one, and, calculated to save  vexatious worry over small expenses  and details in trying to "settle up.'  And to divide- the responsibilities of  leadership by each carrying the purse  on alternate days is a good .idea also.'

SCHOOL TEACHING.  Almost every parent knows all about  school teaching. In short the majority  of parents are always able to enlighten  teachers on their duties, and they never  hesitate to say so in the presence of their  . children/who are in most cases faultlessly white, the majority of other people's children being a lot of villains, or  something worse. We want to say right  here,, these are the foundations of nine-  tenths of all the troubles and annoyances of the teaching profession. When  parents commence to question the methods of the teacher; in the presence of  their children, that moment the influence of the teacher is irreparably destroyed. Parents ought to.know, though  this peculiar memory. Sir John was  never a good speaker, and never a keen'  dehater^thqugh always ready with replies that were effectual often because  they came from Sir John Macdonald  only. Tlie position lie held in the memory and affections of his party are giving  much prestige to his son.  Though, a more fluent speaker than  his father and possessing much of his  parent's magnetism and power to remember faces,heis without theknowledge  and foresight that made the senior Macdonald so famous. It is, therefore, but  reasonable to assume he can never take  the. the place in the hearts of -his .countrymen held by his illustrious parent.  Though he lias, not at the present the  talent to combat, his father had, it  lie only has the foresight to surround  himselfT with capable colleagues, which  Sir John invariably did, he may take a  prominent rank as a leader, and do  much to cement the Conservativeforc.es,  <$>������><S><3><S><$*S><SxSx3>^^  few of them do know it, that the methods  of teaching are ever changing at the sug-} yv]]\c\'1 a_fc thf P''^.ent.are anything but a \  Is the latest Note Paper  out���������beautifully tinted���������  sold at Cliffe's Bookstore.

C.  gestion   of the best educationists of the  'country���������those who make a life study of  the work.   Those of them then who are  sensible   will   yield   the   point to   the  teacher.    Children, very naturally think  their parents know more  than  any one  else, and when.they express their opin-'  ions disparagingly of the teacher, they,  of course, conclude  the, teacher's opinions, rules and methods are unworthy.of  respect.    What then may be  looked for  but  failure?   But  this   is not  all���������-too  1 many parents.look  to   the  teachers for  the  reconstruction  and habits of their  children, instead : of making a ; start in  good breeding or reform at home.' Children may go wild or worse, three quarters  of their time at home, and the teacher is  expected to   remodel   all   this   in   one  quarter of   his  time  at school.   Is   it  reasonable fo expect tin's ? Will sensible  people look for  it ?    If children are  to  g.ow up properly, they must be properly  trained at home.   They must be taught  to respect the  teacher, to be kind  aiid  considerate to school mates, and civil to  their seniors; generally; instead of encouraged in being disrespectful, as  top  many of them are.  At the present time school matters are  not moving in Sandon as smoothly as  they ought to for the benefit of parents  and children alike; and if all concerned  would only give these matters a little  real attention at home, they would soon  find ground for fewer complaints of their  neighbors and neighbor's children, to  either teachers or trustees, to the unqualified satisfaction of both.    '  HUGH JOHN MACDONALi).  At the present time there ; are few  Canadians more talked of than Hugh  ijohn Macdonald, because of his probable  leadership of the Liberal-Conservative  party at an early day.  His; father was a great leader of men  because of several prominent qualities.  He possessed a good knowledge of constitutional law, personal magnetism and  ai-i extraordinary memory of faces. The  first quality would, of course, give him  a good standing as a statesman, the second would pronounce him a.leader j'and  the third and second combined would  make him popular with the masses.  Every man who possesses just as high a  regard for the masses as Sir John did \  never rose to his standing because they  were unable to remember men when they,  saw them. This robbed them but unjustly of their proper standing with the  masses. People like to be noticed, and  Sir John noticed merely because he possessed that remarkable memory, and not  because he had a higher regard for them  than others who were less favored with  political unit. The latter fact, however,  is a characteristic of the age, as this  political unity is fast disappearing on  both sides for the place of an <. independence that may yet do something for the  country.  Oxford Stoves are the  Best Heaters.  Mit. Grkbn does not hesitate to say  that many of the resolutions introduced  at the late session of' the British Columbia legislature were for the purpose of  calching votes only. The regretable  feature of all this is that electors will  support political quacks who lead this  sort of thing. There is much truth in  Barnum's saying that many people like  to be hoaxed.  Politics get into a strange muddle in  this country at times. Mr. "Houston's  paper at, Nelson, the Tribune, is supporting Mr. Galliher, the Grit candidate  for the Commons, and Mr. Houston himself takes a nomination as a delegate to  bring out a Conservative candidate  to defeat this same Galliher. It is not  every one who can ride two horses at the  same time, going in opposite directions.  It will be interesting to know the  position John Houston, of the Tribune,  will take in the coming Dominion elections, if the Labor party brings out a.  candidate in this constituency. His  paper declared, for Mr. Galliher, the  Liberal - .candidate, when 'he was first  nominated. Mr. Houston next joined  the ''Conservatiyei party, and ��������� now declares for Mr. McNeil, the Conservative  candidate.    Will he in turn  desert Mr.  If you want a fuel-saver, purchase one of our Oxford Stoves or  Ranges, which will burn either  ,wood or coal. We have a nice  assortment for sale cheap.

Mining Record" lias collated a number of statistics of metal output for July, on the strength of which it  estimates that our province's yield of  gold, silver, copper and lead' caine that  month to over $1,170,000, without, counting in placer gold, which if Atlin were  included, would: probably add another  $100,000 or so to the month's output.  Tlie ".Record" places East. Kootenay  first for that month, witli an estimated  yield of $317,000, and Trail and the Slocan it credits approximately with $300,-  000 each. Boundary is estimated to  have yielded $132,500 of metals in Jiilv,  tlie Nelson District, $00,000, and the  Coast, Vancouver and Gulf Islands,  about $60,000. The figures above quoted  indicate that the metal yield of this  province, which was in round figures���������  including placer gold���������-valued at $8,000,-  000 in 1899, is likelv to reach a total of  at least $12,000,000���������a 50 percent, increase this year.

Tlie determination of the labor unions  as given expression to at the meeting  last evening, to nominate a candidate  ��������� for this constituency, will complicate the  political situation , here to': a very considerable degree, and cannot fail to be a  matter for much satisfaction to the Conservatives. It is beyond dispute that,  other things being equal, the leanings of  a decided majority of the members of  ' organized labor are with the Liberal  party, and that in a straight party fight  the Liberal candidate, as a general rule,  receives no'small percentage of his support from this direction. This is markedly so in the Yale-Gariboo rldinir. It  is possible then that in nominating a  candidate of their own, the Labor party  will succeed in defeating the Libera.'  candidate. They will accomplish this  too without gaining anything themselves, because they cannot hope to win in  a three cornered -fight, a lact which is  conceded by their own leaders. By their  action then it is possible that an opponent of the government will be sent to  Ottawa, and the constituency will suffer  to the extent that it is in opposition.���������  Rossiand Miner. ,    ,  ������  ������  Criminal Docket for the Assize.

Before he had coma  to the end of the third page, however,  his manner changed and a look of keen  interest gradually replaced tho listless one.

No, nol all.      For he felt wilh '  the   instinciive      intuition'    of   youth,  that   the editor-in-chief  disliked  him; ���������  and although the older man had Iried i  to conceal the envy of his'young, more '  brilliant  associate,     who     had     risen j  so suddenly lo eminence,  he had not  ' boon successful in  hiding it  from the  young  man   himself.       Mr.   Markharn  was  an  able  man,  who   had   risen to  his   position   by     sheer     merit,   after  years of hard  work, and had held it  by  his    pwoisleul,     satisfactory   ,efforts.        But    in-young, Edgerly  he  seemed  to  see  every  quality   Lhal he  had   lacked,   aud   lacking   which   had  made  his  rise   so  slow.  Tho junior edilor was young. lie was  brilliant, quick, adaptable, and enthusiastic. Mr. Markharn was none  of these; and ho hated his associate  as plodding, mediocre middle age often hates buoyant, . talented youth.  Edgerly felt the older man's-dislike;  and at first had tried to overcome  it. Failing in . this,!'be'..had. become  outwardly indifferent.; Yet he was  .such a . warm-hearted, pleasant fellow, that deep, in his soul tho thing  troubled'him. It jarred-him to have  to meet. Mr. Markharn and talk with  him constantly, when he was conscious of tho other's  dislike.  He had almost decided not to come  back another year; and that morning  on the way to the office had felt a  fresh annoyance at hearing of the  engagement of a girl he knew ��������� th������  girl about whom    hia    thoughts had  under     intellectual  cilement.  "You know I had to select a story  to-day, sir," he began.  "So I told Collins lo run them over  and send me up two good ones to  choose from.- I found theso on my  desk this morning, and have just look-  i ed them ovor. They are both curious-  ! ly alike, and about the same subject.  One is by Professor Kings; and the  other by a woman somewhere up in  Rhode Island. I suppose Collins gave  them to me because tho subjects were  so exactly alike. But the development  of the plot, and the treatment, are  quite different."  He paused a moment, while Mark-  ham said deliberately, " Well." Then  added, "Let me see it,",-and held oul  his  hand  for -lhe   manuscript.  " Why this Lsn'l Professor Kings's,"  he continued.     " Let  me see his."  Edgerly looked at Mr. Markharn,  steadily. This was not the first timo  that the senior and junior editors had  silently clashed about the'merits, of  the articles submitted to them; and  with a whimsicaL persistency the  young man meant to have his ,way  now.  " No, I know it isn't," he answered  quietly; "But it is the better story  of the two. Here is Professor,  Kings's." He held the papers towards  Mr. Markharn. " There's no comparison between tho two stories; you'll  see for yourself. I think we had better keep the other ono. It's about timo  such a magazine as Gorham's slopped  taking  drivel and  stories    that    aro  aged man before him the expression  seemed almost a sneer, and ho an-  wered shortly :  '"l think I am quite as good a judge  of what 'm best for the magazine as  you, Mr. Edgerly. " Knape," raising  hia voice a little, " you may take this  story up to Brown, and tell him lo  have it set up at once." And, as1 tho  clerk did his bidding, Mr. Markharn  handed the second manuscript back to  his associate, saying:  " Professor Kings writes admirable  fiction, young man, although you may  not think so. Kindly see (.hat this other a Lory ia returned."  Edgerly stood looking at the editor-  in-chief a moment. In fact ho slared  at him so fixedly that the older man  became uncomfortable. The junior  editor was thinking of many things.  He did nol reaLize Lhal it 13 the discipline of youth to be brought into  contact with the old or captious ; that  to the man before him he personified  everything that the senior editor had  mediocrity and brilliancy, when the  former is in authority. Ho was a vory  young man, kind hearted,' but quick  tempered. Ho was too proud to complain and hia future lay all beforo  him. When he did speak finally, it  was lo say, in a stiff, unbending  fashion :  "Very well, sir. And I beg leave to  tender my resignation when tho year  is   up.'*  , Charks Francis Edgerly had been  traveling for two years through India and the far East, and his stories  of travel and adventure had, been  read and discussed on two continents. WJien he reached New York  after his Jong absence he was seized  by Ihe admiring press and public, as  well as by hosts o������ personal fnends,  and made much of. The praise aud  publicity did nol hurt him; for ho  had been away from home so long  that the greeting touched instead of  fin tiered ,him.  He had not been at home more than  a month, whon he was asked to speak  at a dinner given by a certain liter- ,  ary club, of which he had boon elected a member'during ' his absence, in  honor of a woman who had written  Lhe novel of lhe year... Wilh ils usual'  haste, and generous desire lo crown  all 'talented sons and daughters, tho  public had bought, read, criticised, and  discussed their latest idol with  enthusiastic fevor. ,  Edgerly had never met the author,  but he had read her uovol, since; his  dinner card arriyjed, and considered  her promising. The story was simple  and straightforward, wilh passages  (hat lingered in the memory and ap-  pea.Ied   to  everyone.  "Dinners are a great bore," he tofd  himself on lhe appointed evening,  while on his way lo the banquet. "Unless thoy are given in honor of one s  self."' But Edgerly was mistaken.  Or, if his estimate of dinners in, general was just, this ono proved to bo  lhe exception allowed for by' all rules.  "To think that she's the woman I  had that fuss with old ��������� Markharn  about," remarked the young man to  his frieind, Joe Burnett, on their way  home.

The carriage should  always have a parasol to protect the  child from the direct rays of the sun  and light, and tho lining should be  of green silk or cotton, and bo renewed as it fades to a paler tint."  iTHE BABY'S DAILY AIRING.  Marianna Wheeler, continuing her  series of talks about the welfare of  tho Twentieth Century baby,".advises  tho following course in arranging for  tho babe's daily airing, her instructions referring to the child under ono  year.   She  Bays*  "Give   the   baby   all  the,,fresh  air  ho  can  got   and  every hour of    the  twenty-four   if possible;   to  do  this  do not think it necessary to turn him  ���������'��������� out of doors day and night, rain or  shine,  no matter  what  the weather  be.   If this be done, the poor babe will  come   to   grief  sooner  or later.  Diseases of the. nose, throat, ear or lungs  aro almost  sure to result, from this  overindulgence.     The  baby's    airing  should be as carefully looked after as  his food,  bis   bath,  ox, any    part  of  his daily needs.   His   going out should  depond on the weather and the time  of the year.  "In early: spring, and late fall the  . child should bo taken out between tho  hojurs of ten and four, aa in the spring  there is always irKucb dampness aris- .  ing from the frost in, the groundj and |  in the fall from tho leaves on    the  ground.

Robert McGregor, in  a little magazine  devoted  to floriculture,' called "How  to  Grow  Flowers," offers    somo    hints    from  which we quote:  "A fruitful cause of failure is tho  background. Out doors, the specimen  should be placed on the open lawn, or  against a lattice, fence, tree trunk or  rock. If,placod against a background  of other shrubs or plants the foliage  j of the specimen will intermingle with  I.,that of the background and the effect  be spoiled.  "In photographing; plants  or   flowers indoors it Is'wo 11 to provide special  backgrounds of    various,   shades    of  gray..   White sheets are not so desirable, as the contrast will be unpleasant. , Good backgrounds can be made  at home with very little expense, and  .will   be  the  same  praotically   as, aro  used by the professional photographer.    Over    frames    from,   four     feet  square for small specimens to six by  seven feet for largo plants, stretch unbleached muslin In single pieces, seams  will. show.

By  placing a box  underneath    of .proper  bight for the loose oner of lhe muslin  to';rest on, a 'place    is furnished:  on  which, to    place  the  vase of flowers  or jardiniere containing    the    plant.  Sot it back.about nine inches from the  edge, so that when focusing/the camera may be pointed - a little downward,  and just sufficient to avoid   showing  the rough edge of the muslin nearest  the operator. ���������  ,  Most amateurs, says Mr. McGregor,  place their subjects too closo lo tho  background. The subject should be at ,  least a foot or fifteen inches away |  from the background. The background should'be of good size, so that  when printed it will extend to..'' tho  edges of the negative.

A very    good    light,  though inclined to be a little flat, is  often had on a veranda, under a tree  or at the north'side of a bouso, in tho  shade.

Their bodies are fairly well  built, hands and foot small, shoulders  and hips broad, making, them appear  moro robust than theyi really are.  "Thoir features are so peculiar that  there  is   no   mistaking   thorn   among  others.

Sandon ditto.  The post oflice has been removed to  the Atherton block.  W. N". Bray ton is, acting as agent for  the Crawford Bay townsite.  M. L. Grimmett is moving into his  new oflice and residence today.  Jas. Petts has been appointed court  stenographer ior the Kooten'ays.  Some more late fashions in wall paper  have arrived at Cliffe's bookstore.  Larsen Jfc Lursen are putting up a new  hotel opposite J. R. Cameron's tailor  shop.  The Kootenay Railway & Navigation  Go's, new steamer Kaslo is said to be  the fastest on the lake.  Some people are complaining the electric light poles will stand in the middle  of some sidewalks when built.  Byron White was in the city several  days lately, and under Dr. Power's care  part of the time, lie went away oil  Thursday.  Paul Duggan, operator at Jindysmith,  admits the four deaths on the Esquimau  and Nanairno 11. R., were owing to his  carelessness.  While the remission of Provincial  taxes amounts to something to Sandon-  ites, everything considered, the total is  but a very small sum,  Messrs. Giegerich and Bj'ers'are leasing the K. & S. property across the  street from tlie C. P. R. depot, and are  going to erect a large block thereon.  The un fortunate .woman who has been  in the police cells for some days with the  D. T's. or worse, was taken to New  Westminster on Tuesday by Chief  Stubbs.     ���������  Judge Lilly has completed the assessment of the city, and it foots up toit-2.'10,-  000. This does not include any of the  ��������� improvements in the burnt district, as  the assessment had to represent the  place as it stood in May last.  Nakusp people are talking of bringing  the water of Mrs. McDougald's mineral  springs down to the town, as a company  and establishing a sanitarium. It certainly would be an ��������� excellent thing for  ���������ithe place, and would not be expensive  on a company.  The,enabling bill asked for was.passed  the last session of the legislature. This  gives Sandon a number of men nioie  than formerly, available for mayor and  aldermen, and a great many more electors. The term of the present council,  therefore, expires very ..shortly; and a  new board will have to be elected. Another trouble here, however, looms up.  The list of available candidates and  electors is determined by the assessment  roll, and though Judge Lilly has the  assessment about completed, it is not a  roll in the 'meaning of the law until it is  revised by a courtof revision, which cannot be done much within two months.  This situation of affairs is an anomaly  to,say the least of it.  There is one purpose to which relief  money might be applied and to which no  one will raise an objection. Mr. Harris  has promised to donate the use of one  lot between the school building and the  Gumrnett lots, and the trustees and  teachers are trying to raise $100 to buy  the Grimmett lots, which are considerably levelled down, for a playground.  Bj expending a little from time to time,  in fitting them up, these lots might be  made to well serve that purpose. The  relief committee are asked for an appropriation to purchase these lots, and we  are confident the public, one and all,  will approve of money going that way.  There is much complaint against the  way the city team is being employed in  the'interest of some of the .members of  .tlio. city.council, and very properly. The  team and all belongings were bought out  of the taxes of the public, they are maintained and the teamster's wages are  paid out of public taxation, and no mayor or alderman has any more right to  their services than the poorest man in  the city, If there is not enough public  work to employ the team and teamster,  they ought to be hired out to the public," the aldermen included, and their  earnings go into the city treasurv, to the  credit of the public that have to bear  the cost of their support.
