It is always a new sensation.  Tbe music is &ot iu *be same key, and  the waltc   does   not totacb   the came  chords.of one's   soul,    if   I dance 20  waltzes in the evening I have   20  different thrills of   pfeasure.    With  one  partner itis^a soft, insidious measure;  with the next a long and  languorous  movement; with a  third,   tiiGre or a  hop, that gently jars the  brain into a  delicious, dreamy forg.etfulness; while  a fourth Cavalier, with a heroic tread,  bears you away with strong and vigorous rhythm into   still another  world.  The lights of this   world  go  out,  you  lose consciousness, 'but you   feel no  dread as you lie  within   those   herculean arms like a child rocked to  sleep  in its father's embrace.'  Your feet are  no langer on tbo earth.    It's a celestial rotation out into space, and   when  you light on earth again you feel  like  a - tired  bird   stopping   from   a Jong  flight,"        Two Fullijres of Humanity.  "Unfortunately it is often a trait of  human nature that where a  piece of  advice as to a mining investment  is  gotten gratis it is more often followed  than   the adyice   which - js paid for,'j  says J. C. Ralston jn the  Spokesman-  Review.   ''And again, not alone is ad-  viee ofton solicited from inexperienced  men, but property i6 given into   their  charge for development; for thero are  two things in human endeavor which  all men think they can do,  viz.-  run  the government and operate a mine-  as well go to a blacksmith ������ for a  piece  of delicate dentistry, to a doctor  for a  prescription for axle greiise, or   to a  lawj'er for a cpmpound cathartic."  There's Nothliiff .In It.  A report seems to have gained  circulation to the effect that the Leader  was soon to move down and boom the  C. P; R.'s townsite at the foot  of ��� the  lake.    The rumor is  entirely without  foundation.1   We have cast our lot  in  Moyie City and will contiuuo to: stay  here and work  for the town   that has  so nobly stayed  by  us since our  arrival iii it.   The report was  evidently  started by some unscrupulous  person  whose    idea    was    to    damage    the  town by   circulating  tho  report   that  its newspaper had lost faith in it.  , P. J. McMahon of San .Francisco,  ���California, and .erne -off -the firm of McMahon Bros, of this city, is expected  here, today.     -      *  G. CfflEapbell went into Crar&rook  Wednesday evening to accompany a  carload of gsois -cut to this place the  following day.  Col. W. N. Bray ton of Cranbrook  was out !wre again this week looking  after tho Moyelle townsite, for which  he is agent.  Custooas Officer W. S. Keay of  Wardner was in town Thursday .and  Friday conferring with G-. Campbell,  the customs collector at this point.  Work wa�� commenced on the section' house at Moyelle station this  week. Wc understand the company  also intends erecting an eating house.  Joseph Neiderstadt is now out of  danger and is rapidly recovering.^This  no doubt ia due to a great extent to  tlio efficient services of Dr. King of  Cranbrook.  Snow has been falling almost con.  tinuously for several days past and it  is now about eight inches deep, on the  level. The weather is very mild, however, and the lake is stijl wide open,  The long Looked for pay car was  through here Thursday, going west.  The bulk of tbe.old accounts contracted by the construction, department of  the road were paid up. Some of these  accounts.had run for nearly a year.  0. J. Rose, bookkeeper for McMahon  Bros., met'with a pecnliar  and painful accident   last Thursday  evening.  While attempting to  remove  the  ice  from the neck of a bottle of soda water  which was partly frozen the bottle exploded   and   some   portions   of     the  broken glass struck .his   right hand  and wrist, inflicting several pretty bad  cuts.    It   is   thought,   however, that  none of the tendons have been injured,  in  which   case   the   accident   is  not  likely to have any serious results.  dipt.1 Sanburu Keturns.  Captain I.'B. Sanburn  returned   lo  Moyie,City last evening  after an ab-  senoe of about 10 months,   ��uring the'  most of these   months   Mr. Sanburn'"  was in  the" Alaskan territory 'in   the.  vicinity of Fort  Wrangle; "where   he  was captain  of   the   steamer-Ogilvie,  one of the "finest -boats in !��ha*t  country.    He will return to the north early  in January a-nd-will =ren   a boat  next  season, which is now being built and of.  which he will be  one   of   tlie owners,'  between Bennett City  and -the' Atlin  country,'a.distance of about j&0 miles.  . Cap. Sanburn is one of  the  owners  of the Aurora mine on the west  shore  of the  lake, directly   opposite" Moyie  ���City,and -is 'owner of   the  castle-like  -residence that stands �� close  bv."   He  will remain here a week  or  ten  days  and then return to Vancouver,   where  Mrs. Sanburn is residing. \ ���-.  GEM ERA L  NEWS NOTES.

He  could have set the half line in twenty  seconds, but it is .a matter of principle with him never to set up what  he can pick np. The printer has a  hard time. He has to set type all day  aiid play pedro for the beer all night.  We would like to be a printer were it  not for the day, work.  Is this a   corner  lot?   No, it   is a  towel.   It has been serving an appren-  tiseship in.a printing  office- for  the  past five years.    The horses are  dragging it away.    A man will take an ax  and break tbe towel  into   pieces  and  boil it for soap grease.    Then ' he   will  sell the- towel for tripe.    If you find a-  piece of tripe with a monogram in one  corner, you may know it is the   towel.  Has the printer   tobacco?    He  has,  but he will not tell you  so.    He  carries it in the leg of his boot, and when'  he wants a chew he sneaks  down   the  back alley where nobody can see him,  The printer is a queer man'.   Sometimes ho has ten thousand ems on the  string, but they are always his  dupes.  It you are a printer do not be a blacksmith, or you will get fired;  The rumor of a direct railway line  from Winnipeg to Duluth is again re-  wived.

Train Sorvioe.,. ,  Since the first of the month trains  on the western division of the 'Crow's  Nest road have been run with more  regularity, but the passenger coach  has not yet been pressed into service.  Nor,is it likely tobe for some/ time/as  the company has issued strict orders  against carrying passengers. It seems  the western division of the road is still  in dispute and as yet has only been  taken over on conditional terms.  Moyie is so far receiving every ac-  accommodation that she would if she  had a depot, as trains stop for passengers and deliver freight just the  same. Only last Thursday a train  stopped while a carload of soft drinks  for the different hotels of the town  was being unloaded, and small shipments of merchandise have been  treated the same way.  Tlie' Shamrock,    with   which    Sir  Thomas    Lipton   hopes   to   win 'the  Americans'cup  next   year,   is   to be.  built   by   Yarrow  &' Co.,   of Poplar.  They are the great   torpedo   boat  experts.   Thc Shamrock will have aluminum ^top-sides and her underrjody'will  be of a material like Tobin bronze, but.,;  lighter.  Perhaps the  greatest of   the  many  attractions at the  Paris exposition  of  1900 rt-ill be  the enormous  telescope  that is now 'rapidly' nearing  completion   at.the astronomical   observatory;  at   Paris. , This    gigantic    telescope,-a  scientists believe/will enable.them   to  settle once and for all  the . much   dis,,  cussed question as to   whether or  not  the moon is inhabited. .  D. J. Elmer was in Cranbrook yesterday,  Work was started on the St. Eugene  ore bin in the south end of town this  morning.  The tire at Dawson City recently,  in which $530,000 worth of property  was destroyed, was started in a dance  hall at the rear of the: Green Tree,  saloon. It was the result of a row be,-.  tween a dancing woman, one 'Belle  Mitchell, jyho threw a lighted lamp at  another woman. The lamp broke, tha  the oil spread and in a few second*}  the building was a sheet of flame. The,  fire of a,year ago was started by the,  same woman throwing a lamp. A,  mouth ago she burned her own,  place up in Dawson by throwing  a lamp at a woman and now she haa  caused a conflagration by again losing  her temper and wielding another*  lighted lamji. ��       V HV\  YJ  ^1  m  1  1  '!SS3!SK5^SR3H3*-?^  3BKB99Baffi&3EBS  orawHcsnze^sHHiHH NEWS IN   BRIEF.  ������I*  u     )   '  ���' I,  I ',  > ',.  -.I y  4y  y V  )/%/  1*      -i    .  7 ������    4j  iyi/  , ni;.  �� >>���  t  ,11'-..-. ���  I   '  V >'  *, ���> ���  .*>{ '  fHi ���  ' . i '  -' oi  ��'.<  ' ji  i  ?  i  i"    " i  '    i   ,  m,,  i.'

It wns a party of ghosts; pale faces,  wasted hands, on occasional groan, enlivened from time to time by a, hacking  'coug-h.      ' '  At a'quarter of nine Mrs. .Week's  dropped a domino. Col. Wilds shrieked  "Pire!" and they were all ca.rried oil  and put to bed like babies.  In consequence of /the excitement  Mrs. Weeks and Miss Paine ventre rest  for another week, and tlie following  evening Miss Malvina and Col. Wilds sat  dawn to a tete-nr-tete game-  Miss Malvina could not help noticing  liow handsome lier former lover had become, and how highly polished -. and  pink his bald head wtis.  They were having a most charming  game, when' suddenly a moth miller  sputtered into the gas and fell whizzing  among- the dominoes. ,  Immediately, Col. Wilds went oft.  Poor Miss Malvina was so overcome  ehe scare el 3- .knew what to. do. y,iXot  lilting to'sit gazing at her old friend,  who was behaving himself, in a most  childish and foolish manner, she hastily !a.rose, and, walking1 across the room,  took from her pocket a smallbox from  which she extracted' an "excitement  pill," wihich she swallowed.  In a momerut the. colonel was at, her  side.  "   "Miss Malvina!" he cried,  "what is*  it?'   You are ill!"  "It's only any organ," faltered Miss  Malvina.  In his courtly sympathy Col. Wilds  forgot his own ills.  After this for a weelt ,he and Miss  Malvina sat down tete-a-tete, and during that time -he never once exhibited  a nerve, and ehe almost forgot that she  ever .had an organ.  But happiness in this world is short  lived and Fate is a cruel jade.  On thc eighth'evening, when the colonel and Miss Malvina were, enjoying  the mast harmonious game of dominoes  thej- had yet played, and when each was  touchingly reluctant to beat t.heotheT,  a note was brought to Miss Malvina.  She tore it open and read :  "Dear Malvina���I pay for no well persons.  I hear that you have entirely recovered, and  that that miserable organ of yours performs its functions like a Christian,,  "Come home at once." ,  Miss Malvina laid down, the note and  a tear fell among thc dominoes.  "My dear Mi��j Malvina!" cried v the  colonel, sym pathetically, "what is  troubling you?   Toll me, I beg!"  "Alas! Col. Wilds, I must leave this  haven of rest."   ���  "But why?"  "My aunt refuses to pay my board  anv longer."  "Allow me to do so!" ' ''��� i/, ' ' ���  '���Oh! Col. Wilds!"  "Why not? Pm a millionaire, unmarried aud, of ag-e!"  Miss Malvina blushed like a school*  girl.  "You are so kind���but what would  the world aay?"  "Nothing, if you will follow my  wishes."  , "What are they ?'.' inquired Miss Mal-  vina- innooontlj*!      ������"��� o  "Bemv wife!'' ' ^**-*vr  '."But, Col. Wilds, iriy organ?"     '." - , ��� f  "No objection, whatever,"- answered'  the colonel, cheerfully; "itcounteracts  my nerves.'*.     y .y  Poor Miss Mnlviija; ail 'the'physics iil.  the world, bad been tried upon her and  all had failed, for no one had ever  ithought of giving her .a dose oi happiness,, That' <tos<.(. being (administered,  her recovery.was rapid and complete!
