British Columbia.  Chas. Farrell hats returned from  Capo Nome, lie .arrived iu Movie  yesterday morning, looking better ,th an  his friends have ever seen him before.  Mr. Farrell went to Nome last March  accomphied-by Tom Rader=<and John  Day/ Rader returned, with Fart ell arid  is now in Spokane, but Day has bti-  como interested in some claim's,, near  Nome and is doing well with them'.  Mr. Farrell  speaks   more favorably  of Nome than most of the' reports  received from  there.   Thero   is   neither  the number of destitute people or  the  amount of sickness as repoi'ted.   This  has been "a very dry season   in  Nome,  in fact the driest in years,   and   owing  to the lack of' water   not   nearly   as  much gold has   been taken   out-as if  there had been rain.    Mr. Farrell cays  the price of provisions is quite reasonable', aud that good meals ,can  be had  from $1 and up.    There arc about 00,-  000 people scattered over an   area   of  about 20 miles.    All   these ��� get   their  mail at the ono  postoffice,   which   is  open   from 5  o'clock in Uie   morning  till 12 o'clock at night, it being  daylight all this time.   .There are 10  em-1  ployees in this office and there are Five  delivery windows;  ; F. E. Simpson, .of the Cranbrook  Herald, was seen by, Mr. Farrell. He  and his party had .disposed of most of  their goods at a-good figure. ��� Simpson  intends returning in October.  Messrs. Farrell and Radcr took in a  supply oT merchandise ar.d  nice cleanup. Mr. Farroll  ���back to tbeie again ne;-:t spring, for he  believes that country ha? a bright  future before it. In the meantime he  will devote his timo 'looking after his  many mining'interests in South Fast  Kooteuay.  Xariow Escape From Drowning.  What came very near being0 a fatal  drowning accident accurred on Moyie  lake .last Sunday about one o!clock,  when a woman named "Dot," a well  known ctiaractar of the demimonde  type, and a man whose name we have  been asked to withhold, came within a  hairsbreadth of losing their lives.  The man and woman left  the boat-  house about-12 o' clock in a row, boat  and went up   the  lake   towards   the  narrows.     The    wind    .was   blowing  a heavy gale,   and  whitecaps ���  were  quite numerous.   Little  was  thought  of   the   party  until   nearly  an hour  later when,a man who   was   standing,  near the Manhattan hotel noticed   the  boa!, eapsiz??.    They wero then, in the  middle.of   the   lake;   about   opposite  Park, Mitchell & ��� Co's  sawmill.    The  man ,who saw the boat   upset' rushed  to the comer of 'Queen's  avenue   and  notified Constable  Lindsay,  who  was  standing    there.   , Messrs.     Lindsay.  Elnier, Reid and Shea formed a fescue  party and  'set   out   to   extricate   the  couple from their   perilous   and awkward position.    They .found  the  boat  bottom side up with the  man   oh one  side and the woman on the other cling-  ing.to one [another.   They   had   been  in this posision   for nearly,30 minutes  and were pretty  weli   exhausted,   the  woman   being   especially   so.    ��� They  were placed in   the   other   boats ��� and  brought to   town.    The   woman   was  taken to ttie Moyie hotel   and   put   to  bed and Dr.   Iliggins   was   summoud.  The man was able to go his   way  and  look after himself, he being' all   right  aside   from   being   badly   frightened.  The woman is again  able   to   be out.  Neither seemed to be able- to  give a  satisfactory explanation as to  the upsetting of tlie boat and   it  is' thought  possibly they were   ino'r,e   less   under  the influence of liquor   at   the   time,  Both,'ho wo ver, now realise that it was  the closest call they ever had in their  lives.

This weuk Moyie was honored  a distinguished party ot visitors consisting of Messrs. Geo. Gooderham,  president*of the St. Eugene consolidated Mining Co.; T. G. Blackstock,.  vice president of the same company ;  Geo..Mitchell, Mr. Gdoderham'sgrandson; Hon. Mr. Guest and Mr. Gregg,'  of London, England''Willie Campbell,  Mr. Blackstock's private secretary; Mr.  Big Uer.l i'eiuiing'.  . Montreal, Aug.   B���An   interesting  story is being built  in  mining  circles  uiado    a j in the city on the   departure of Hon.  may go j Lionel Guest for the west, in company  with Messrs. Gooderham and Black-  stock nf Toronto, Mr. Campbell of Mr.  Hosmer's office in this city, and Mr.  Brigstoke, mining engineer of Nelson.'  Mr. Guest is a son of Lord fvVimborue  who lately disposed of Dowlar's steel  works ac Cardiff, the largest in the Empire, for a largo sum. The story is  that Lord Wimborne is in negotiation  with the owners of the War Eagle and  Center star mines,-for the purchase of  a controlling interest, and that, if the  deal gees through, the Trail smelter  will also pass into his Lordship's hands.  The St. Eugene mino  at   Moyie   is  now not only  the .biggest   silver-lead  mine in, Canada, but ranks'among,the  big silver-load  rriine3   of   the   world.  E. E. Braden, the   well   known,,  manager of the -United States  assay  ofiice  at Helena, Mont.,  and ore purchaser  'for tlie American   Smelting   and   Refining Co., accompanied by Mr. Gunn,  a' mining expert for the same company,  were here a few days'  ago.    In   speaking of the St. Eugene mine, Mr.  'Braden, said that it produced more metallic tons of lead during  the.   month  of  July than   any   other   mine   on   the  American continent, with   the' single  exception of-the ' Silver King mine  in  Utah, iu the United States.  The concentrates from the >St. Eugene mill are now shipped to 'Auta-  fagasta, Chili, to Guggenheim Bros.."  who use them to rnbi with the low  grade ores from their South American  mines in smelting.  It is not unreasonable f to predict  that the St. Eugene rriay in a short  time becoriie . the biggest silver-lead  producer in' the world. As development work progresses enormous ore  bodies are being discovered, which, in  every case have ad appearance ��� of  permanency. ,. ;  CRANBROOK    ITEMS.

Drewry present, it will  be seen  lhat  the directorate of the St. Eugene Consolidated Minim? Co. was  well   represented,   The St,   Eugene   mine   and  mill were  thoroughly   examined, and  an informal meeting of   the   directors  who  were   present   was   held.    They  wero highly pleased with  the  outlook  for the company, and the manner in  which tho business had   been   carried  on generally.  All of the. above party "frith the  exception of Mr. Croniu left- for Ross  laud Wednesday evening.  Cranbrook Herald:    ���  John Fink was one of those who remained over at Moyio for the, ball at  thh East Kootenay hotel, and if he  did not. enjoy nimselt no one did.  -.-. The-striko situation on the C. F. R.  was practically unsettled Wednesday,  though a peaceful solution of the question will apparently soon bo   reached.  W. F. Gurd, B. C. L., has found his  business to be increasing so rapidly  that a stenographer has become" a  necessity, a portion of the time..  The rooms of the Cranbrook club  have been rendered still more attractive and cosy by the covering of the  floors-of the vestibule and card rooms  with oil cloth, and a substantial addition to the furniture.  The pioneer lumbermen of Gran-  brook, the.Leitch Brothers, will have  another mill cutting luniber before the  week is closed, if it is not doing so  already.- It is located about five miles  south of Cranbrook on the railroad,  ane will cut from 12,000 to 13,000 feet  daily, making this company,3. daily  output from ,40,000 to 50,000 feet  daily.

Politicians in position to know seem
io think that there will be a general
dominion election in October. Campaign literature is already making its

The outlook for lead is indeed prom- \
ising. Prices havo been making
considerable advances on the foreign
markets. Tho preparations of the
powers for'active hostilities in China
and the existence of general - unrest
among the nations lias created much
activity among the ammunition manufacturers and tho consequent increased demand for' lead has already
had a market eiTect on prices.

simply eay I gave you this orange, but
phould tlie transaction be entrusted to
a lawyer to put iu writing bo would
adopt this form: I hereby givo, grant

The writer did not see a single tunnel in the' Ural itange. Jt is u remarkable fact that during the trtuu:-  Siberian Railway inspection the writer,, did not observe a tunnel anywhere; and even after continuing the  inspection right into the heart of  Russia, about 2,000 miles more of  line had bei'ii cove;'��'d befoie he sow  the first tunnel. Tins was near Tyfa,  not far from tlie illustrious Tolstoi's  home; and it was while responding to  a pre-arranged invitation from le  grande ItuSae ,that the writer came  across this, the first tunnel not.'id, after (5,000 miles of overland railway  inspection.        ���    ,  A Russian railway engineer would  sooner blow up a small mountain  than make a tunnel, leaving u pawning chasm between the rocks.' with  two "streaks of rust" at the bottom  thereof as a souvenir of his activity.  Or, if he finds that, after going to  the mountain, the' mountain <i�� not  likely to yield to him. his instructions are to circumvent it by a long  di't'ouf. Anything  to  avoid  tunnel  ing! The primary aversion to tunnels in Russia is not alone their first,  cost, but their,, subsequent-cost; for  tunnels, "like     houses,   always      have  "something the matter with them."  ���Gassier's Magazine.

"Well, no, but"���      ���  "Then I, would rather not," and she  hurried on her way. The oflicer was perplexed, lie had been standing there 13'  minutes, and in that time three women  had evaded passing the open doorwny of  the drug store. Presently a shopgirl  was added to the trio. , She glanced in  and -then' made a circuit of the curb.  Thero was an expression of relief on hoi  face when she had passed. The .puzzled  bluecoat decided to investigate. He walked over and stared in the doorway.' The  only person in sight was.a soda watei  clerk. Then the oilicer retraced his steps.  A' few moments later an old colored wo  man hobbled slowly along until she was  directly opposite the druggist's. Something' prompted her' to suddenly change  her route. The policeman met her as-  phe crossed.  "Hold ou, aunty!"  She appeared too frightened to run.  "'Deed, sah, Ah"���  "Oh, I didn't say you did. I just waul  to ask vou a question."  "W-what, sah?"  "Why did you suddenly .turn^ back  when you were passing that door?"  "Dah am a brae cat in do doah, sah.  en he looks jes' laike he am gwine to  run out."  "Well, what of it if he did run out?

However,  the opinions of tu<> ofl'cer were not complimentary.  GoiaKiiiltli'n Heroine*.  It wi\s the age of moral sentiments, and  to have them nt hand was the sovereign-  cst thing against temptation, from without and within. Heroines used to express them whenever the least danger  threatened and sometimes when thoy  were in perfect safety. Under instructions of tho good Samuel Richardson they  sought the welfare ot themselves, their  lovers and their correspondents in formularies prescribing the virtues -for every  exigency and praising right conduct with  n constancy which ought to have availed  rather more promptly than it did. Hut  neither of the girls in "Tho A .car of  Wakefield" is very profuse of them, anil  this marks either a laspsing faith in their  elticacy or a rising art in the novelist.  Goldsmith, at any rate, .coutines the  precepts and reflections to tho father of  his heroines, as he might.fitly do m the  case of the supposed' narrator. Richardson, or, rather, the epistolary .form of his  novels, obliges his heroines to make them.  Yet he was a great master and in spite of  his preaching a great artist. Ho was a man  of a middle class conscience, and in au age  not so corrupt as some former ages, but  still of abominnble social usages, he  could not withhold the protest of a  righteous soul, though he risked rendering a little tedious the interesting .girs  who uttered it for him.-W.

A barefooted, 'shabbily dressed. but  bright eyed newsboy, says Forward,  was working , his .Way through a  crowded car, olTerjng his papers in  -every direction in a way that showed  liim well used to the business and of  a temperament " not easily daunted.  The train started while he was making change, and tlie conductor, passing him, laughed, "Caught this  time, Joe!" he s.tid. "1'ou'll have  to run to ��� Fourteenth street."  "Don't ' care," laughed 7Joe in ru-  turn. "I can s<-H all the'way back  again." A whito haired .old gentleman seemed interested in the boy  and questioned him concerning his  way , of living and his earnings.  There was a younger brother to be  supported, it appeared. Jimmy was  lame and "couldn't earn much his-  self." "Ah,-1 see. That makes it  hard. You could . do' better alone."  The shabby little figure was erect in  a moment, and the. denial was  prompt and 'somewhat indignant.  ":No; I couldn't. Jim's somebody to  go homo' to. He's lots of help.  What would be the good of' having  luck if nobody was glad or'of gettin  things, if there was nobody to divide  with?"-  As the boy sprang from the train  at its next stop to make his way  back to his humble home the remark  -was made that "a worse sermon"  had been heard at church.  For .llo-quito   l{il����.  Mosquito bates are often rank poison, especially upon the delicate, flesh  of children. It has lately been 'scientifically .proved_,-_-that the long proboscis of this pest may carry genus  .from decaying matter into its victim, thus producing malaria or a  species of blood poison. Where exposure is impossible to avoid, discomfort is obviated by rubbing  the exposed parts with a mixture of  one part of oil of sassafras with live  parts of proof alcohol. Eve.ry three  or four hours a slight rubbing" must  be repeated. The ' mixture does not  stain,   nor  is  it  unpleasant.  The bites of mosquitos and spiders,  unless the latter he of an unusually  virulent type, can be antidotod by  an immediate application of- paste  and baking soda and water. Salt  will answer in most cases, and lis-  terine is good. Should ,tbe bitten  part seem angry and swollen diluted  carbolic acid "will antidote the. poison.

Nasturtiums.  Nasturtiums are grateful things  and repay even iiidiliereiit care, but  when given generous-treatment thoy  are a perfect blai.e of wonderful color   and   beauty.  Wheo nasturtiums refuse to bloom  and.go to leaf profusely, pick off the  leaves by great liandluls, ruthlessly  and relentlessly. This lets the sun  and air get to the stems and buds  and makes' them bloom much more  profusely. ..Keep all the old flowers  picked off and never lot seeds form.  Once a week go o\er them and pick  otT everything in' the shape of (lowers, leaving only buds, and-next day  but one they are as gay as ever.- The.  more they are picked the better . they  bloom.'

The cakewalk poper had its origin  among the French negroes of Lousian.i  more then a century ago, says the  .New Orleans "Times-Democrat."  ,There is little doubt that it is an offshoot of Gome of the old French country  'dances.'' It .resembles several of them  :n form. From JTew Orleans it spread  over the entire south and thence north.  Jt was found a convenience to the plantation negroes. They v-erenotfwedded  jby license, and it was seldom that the  .services ef a preacher wero called in.  At a Cakewalk & .man might legitima-  .tely shovi'' his proforence for a woman,  'and thus publicly claim heir for a  wile, 'fn eiFect tho oakewalk was not  different from theoldScolch marriage,  .which required only public acknowledgment from tho contracting parlicp.  So this festival became in some sense a  wooing, an'acceptance or a rejection  and a ceremony. This explains its  popularity with the blacks outside of  its beauties, with tlie accompaniment  .of music, which is competent at all  times to com maud negro support.

Cornwallis' movement into Virginia is more like a retreat than the advance of a. vktoriou-s' and conquering  army. Andy as for Gen. Greehe,.:tliey  say that he is not only harassing Gen.  Cornwallis at every step of his northward movement, but has detached his.  cavalry and a portion of his riflemen to  reconquer the Carolina.? and Georgia."  "On what utter nonsense do these  .misguided colonists feed their despair?  ing hs-pes!" answered the captain.  "Why, it would be no-more ridiculous  for you to assure me that a detachment  of Marion's outlaw's were here, surrounding'..this very house, and that I  was in danger of becoming a prisoner  to them, as to���what was that?" The  captain jumped.hurriedly from his seat  .rwicl, grraspiug'.the railing of the Veranda, inllfi'ont of him for support, looked  anxiously up and down the road that  ran in front of the old plantation.  It ceem^d to me like tho winding  j of. -v horn," tiaid the lady, calmly.,  ' "And, by my faith, I. heard the gal-  j loping of horsiis and a short command,"  continued the captain, excitedly.1  ''Inside, inside, captain, as your.value  your liberty," said the lady; '".I'saw fl  mounted man in uniform- there in the  bushes just now,, and I,know, the uniform well."  "And the weaver?"-  ' ,..-:...���   '..  in question."  "And, pray, what can I do?" asked  1he girl drawing herself up to her full  height and looking at the English officer with scornful and indignant eyes.  "You cen tell theni that there is no  ono concealed in your house.   He will  never dare to doubt your word."  "You would have me tell a lie,to save  you���me, the woman you pretended to  love and wish to make your wife ?"  {Tt is a case of necessity���quick, they  are approaching on both sides,   JThey  have been informed.   It is,a trickl''  "Where will you hide?" asked the  girl, with an insulting emphasis'on the  word "hide."  "You will tell them that no one is  concealed in the house?" '  "I shall tell them nothing but the absolute truth���be quick."  "Then there is but one place where  I will be safe," answered tho captnin,  "and there only if be be a gentleman.''  Saying which, the captain darted up  the stairs and entered Miss Pomdex-  ter's own chamber. ll ������- .    -  He had no more than closed the door  when a lithe, athletic young officer in'  the partisan cavalry leaped over < the  railing of the veranda and stood, embarrassed and hat iu hand, bowing before the young mistress of the mansion. " " A"t"  "Phoebel" esclaipi^cl the young soldier. ' ���---  ' "'Would it not be better to address  me as your prisoner?" answered Miss  Poindexter. "Ii I am not mistaken, you  have surrounded my home with armed  soldiers and have come yourself on. no  gentle errand."  "Prisoner. Phoebe ?" enswered'the patriot captain. "I would never wish to  hold' you prisoner, save in the bonds of  love. My presence here needs an explanation and I will make It. I have received information that,an English officer is visiting you this afternoon. .Tt  is a matter of duty. I havo been ordered far in advance of the returning  troops of Marion and Sumter for the express purpose of catching some of the  officers at the garrison at Charleston  off their guard; and I expect to appear  at the very gates pf that city before I  am done and lei there know that, far,  from being'defeated, as they suppose,  Gen. Greene's army has driven their red  eoats from the Carolinas and is chasing  Cornwallis himself to the sea."      ' ���  "What a ropo'a^peJ" laughed the  young lady.- , "  "I wish I had time for romance," said  the officer; '.'there could be no more delightful opportunity,' Only when this  war is over will I be able to ask you to  reward a love that has been faithful  to you ever since we, were children.  But to duty, Are you harboring an  English officer here?"  "W:hy, of course I am," phe answered,  laughingly.  "This is no time for joking," said  the captain. "If he is not here, he cannot have been gone a very long time;  and if you delas^me he may yet get  within the gates of Charleston."  "It seems to me that you ore a trifle  difficult to-day," she replied. "Do you  not believe  me?"  "Of course," ho said, biting his lips  jtervously. "I shall have to search the  house," he continued.  "0, we arc quite used to it," she answered.' , -  He ordered up his men and began a  systematic search of the mansion and  surrounding buildings. He .himself,  however, stood immovably in front of  the door that he knew opened into her  private apartments, and permitted no  ono to enter. The ecarch was therefore  useless.  "Well," said she, teasingly, "why .do  you not enter ray own room?"  "If he is an officer he should be a gentleman, and could not be there," answered, the captain. "You have been,  fooling me, Phoebe, in order to give him  a start. I do not blame you. He was  a guest, and you have but observed the  laws of hosintality, even though he is  an enemy to ottr country. Farewell���  lemember always I shall come to you  when this wor is finished."  "Why not come before���to-night?  You will not wish to camp neurcr  Charleston than this, I am sure. Grandmother, who is in town to-day, shopping, will be back by tea time, and you  can tell us all the news."-  . "And may I teJl you something else ?"  "Yon���without even waiting for the  war to end. And I will tell you something, too." The young patriot turned  about' f or' a moment���and ..for a kiss.  Then springing into the saddle he shouted the command: "To horse, the road  to Charleston���gallopi" and was'.off.   '  As soon as he and his men werewell  out of sight; the English artillefy"cap-f  tain made his appearance. "I suppose,"  he said, "that I am under obligations to  you���and yet. I thought your-truth-.  fulness would have been the ruination  Of me." a ."''"���'���  "And could you have admired or loved  a- woman who had deliberately Jied?"  "Well, that is rather an odd question.  If fypu had told an untruth it would  have been in a noble cause, All ia fair  in love and war, you know."  "Even hiding in ft woman's apartment."     .  "Oh, yes���when necessity coinpelsit."  "Well, Capt, Webb," said Miss Poindexter, slowly, "will you in, your turn  do me a favor?"  "With the  /greatest pleasure, I am  sure," answered/tho gallant captain.  "Will you please mount your horse  and.get safely bacl| mto   your   own  "���ic!-."
