Con-  siderable work has been done on them  and a good amount of ore taken out.  The group .is^owned by a' Montreal  and Vancouver company of, which F.  C. Houten is manager.  It will be remembered that Mr.  Howard wa3 here upon two different  occasions lo examine these propertes,  ; ' i ���  and judging from his expression of  opinion it is not at all- unlikely that  the deal has been consummated. If  so, immediate arrangements will likely  be made to commence work and convert the property into a regular  shipper.    ___J   . A Dastardly Trick.  Last Sunday evening the Central  hotel of this place had a narrow escape  from being burned down. Some person with malicious intent deliberately  spilt.a half , can of kerosene on the  floor of the office when "no one was  around and lit au match' to it. The  flames rose almost to the ceiling and  it was with considerable.difficulty the  fire was extinguished. Had it got beyond control it'is difficult to tell where  the damage would have, ended, as  a number of* the guests of the house  had retired up stairs aud when the  stairway would catch lire all avenues  of escape would have been shut off.  A man who' was drrink around  town for several days was suspicioned,  but no positive proof could be found  against him.  Kailroatl Notes.  The" track layers have reached  Wardner at last, aud as soon as the  temporary bridge is put "across the  Kootenay river the work westward will  be rapidly pushed.  Six hundred extra men have been  put to work between the head of tho  lake and' Cranbrook, aiid when that  piece ol work is done it "will be cleer  ���sailing from Warduer to a distance of  several miles west of here. It now  seems quite evident that the rails will  be laid to this place within  30 clays.  ll. Balfour's bridge gang have finished the bridges at the head of the  lake and arc now working a ehort distance above Muir's mill.  -llo nml h ricuic.  Yesterday morning Messrs. Campbell and Clark started a man out in  their big row boat with a consignment  consisting chiefly of corn juice and  beer to be delivered to parties at the  head of thc lake. Tho man rowed up  thc lake until he was out of sight of  town when thc idea struck him that  it was an oscellcnt opportunity to go  into business on hia own hook and  open up a saloon on board. Consequently the keg of beer waa tapped  and the man proceeded to have, ft picnic all to himself, . He played a  trebble'role in the drama���proprietor,  bartender and customer) and judging  from the condition in" Which he was  found late iu the evening, .business  during the day must have been pretty  good.

The annexation of Hawaii will prove  a bonanza to the owners'of steamships  plying between the Pacific,.'coast and  Honolulu. . They have begun to feel  the effects of the coming rush for  Uncle Sam's new real .estate, and. inquiries at the ticket office' indicate  lhat tbe rush has just commenced,  say's the Tacoma News. It is a noteworthy fact that most of the people  who are going to Honolulu at1, present  are taking first class passage, an indication of the character of the passengers.", They are'expecting an era  of prosperity and are rushing across  the sea to the garden spot of the Pacific fo establish themselves .where  they can reap the benefits of the  growth of trade. Recent reports from  Hawaii show that there has been a  uiniLed improvement in business, cir-  from the time annexation was assured  It is stated % those who have been on  the island recently that there is a good  openingfor business, but "the demand  for laborers is not excellent.  ITell Over a lilufV.  Two of Lindsay Crosson's horses  fell over a rocky cliff opposite the  Siftou hotel last Saturday afternoon  and sustained such severe injuries as  to render them unfit for work for  some time to come.  Mr. Crosson had ��� turned the horses  out on the hillside, to . graze, when  shortly afterward one came tumbling  down tlie hill over the rocks, getting  badly cut (.and .bruised.. A few minutes later the other horse in attempting to follow his mate also lost his  footing and fell-down with a, crash in  nearly exactly the same place.  A School for IUToyio.   ,  ' Preparations are already being made  for the establishing of a school in  Moyie for the uil term. . The temporary boar.i or. trustees, -composed of  F.I. Moi-fj,. \Y. d.

'  'A preliminary meeting was held by,  tlie members of the Catholic church  here last Monday.1 to ascertain the  feasibility of building a church. The  meeting was well 'attended and it  seemed to be the'general opinion that  the undertaking would prove 'success;  ful.. As'Moyie City is yet. without a  church ��� of any denomination, this  news is gratifying.        ���  '  Later���Since the above was put ih  type it is learned that tlie committee  on finance has secured, a guarantee of  sufficient funds to build the church,  and .that work on, it will commence,  next week.

The lots aro centrally situated and  are desirable for either business or  residential purposes. Most of these  lots have been purchased by residents  of Moyie/ indicating the faith the people have in their own town.  A IXivo of Industry.  . G. R.

Captriln A. C. JlcGhco of Columbus,  Oa., was one of tho four owners of fche  slave ship Wanderer. Captain Seiimios, n  brother of Admiral Semmes of tho Confederate cruisor Alabama, was commander of  the ship.  In  tho early summer of   1858 o regatta  was nrrnngod   to como off  In Brunswick  harbor, on ,tho Gcorgin const, nnd owners  of vessels north and south were invited to  participate in it"   .Inst before the big diiy  a strange vessel sailed into the harbor, and  tho captain guvo liis name as Sommos and  ' tho name of  liis vcsel as  tho  Wanderer,  flailing from New Bedford.  Ho applied for  permission  to race, but wns  ruled out by  the managers.     Tho beautiful lines of his  vessel attracted  much  attention, nnd her  .pulling qualities were manifest.    Captain  Semmes protested  thnt  ho had not' been  fairly .treated and  appeared to be very indignant; over tho rofusal, but,his indignation was  nssunii d.    IJe  hnd  really gone  there 'o familiarize himself with tho various passages between the bays and sounrifl  pf the C'oorgfn coast and tho main without  exciting suspicion.    He  hnd sailed up tho  XJront Ontoei'h'co river, which was not much I  frequented   by  vessels  ut   that   timo, and  had found a suitable  hiding  place In caso  ���   of emergency In a donso  swamp about 10  miles up tho river. n ,;..  flnvlng completed his arrangements for  <ho outward voyage, he look on u cargo of ,  irinHt-'ts, brass wire, bright | colored cloths j  unit other gowgaws  that were  likely to !  ,   tempt tho African savages, nnd   placod in  tho lookers of the ship lings of' all tlio different maritime natloiiH, so thnt tho Wan-  jlorcr  might show any colors  sho  choso.,  Then he   placed hor in cburgo of  n picked  crow and instructed Ills first  mate to proceed to tho mouth of tho Kongo river and  liwnlt his  appearance   -Captain   Semmes  himself  took   passugo  on  a  steamer and  retched n point on.the African const, whero  ho communicated with   King Dnhomincy,  itho   putty ruler  of  one ot  tho river province*   lying along  thc  Kongo       "King  Dahomincy wns not  a   hard   man.to (leal  with," said Captain McQhee, in spooking'  of tho expedition, "and as ho wns very fond  of   personal display nnd a grcut  lover  of  '   ruin  It was not  long, before he and Cap-  fain Semmes   had como to an ngredmont.  The latter  had   taken along with   him on  Jhc steamer a.small stock of trinkets, nnd,  fo disarm suspicion, had gtvon out, that ho  was going  on n combination   trading nnd  exploring tour.     A judicious exhibition of  the trinkets, nnd the assurance that thero  wero plenty moro  to be  had,'induced tlio'  savage chief  to' agree to deliver on a certain dnto, nt tho month of the Kongo, 750  pf his subjoets, between .tho ogos of 13 and  18  years.     Tho males  co.it n littlo more  than tho  fomnlos. und   the  prices ranged  from $1 to ��0  a   head, paid for   In   bright  hued cloth, trinkets and gowgnws.'    King  l)ahoiiiiney appeared to find little difficulty .  (u securing the captives, and, ut tho timo  ' appointed, they wero marched down to the .  mouth of the river, ,n crowd of  misi-rublo, !  , nukod  young  men nnd women   and boyti  and girls.  , , ,]  "The death rato 'among tho poor croa-  turofiwas terrible, oOof them dying during '  tho homeward passage. Through thu  i-kilj of Captain Semmes the voyngo was  made without nny serious miehap. i The  most difficult part of the voyago was to get  into port. The only way to entor tho  mouth of-the Savannah river wns under j  tho blaek imu./.los of tho guns of tho fort  and it would have been (undue** to Attempt  to ontcr with that contraband cargo in  open dnyMght. Instead Captain .Semmes  * prept into the mouth of the Oreal Ogoochoo  by night und ascended the river to the big  pwamp and thero lay concealed while be  c'oim anniented with J.uninr ln Savannah.   |  "Li.-iiuar thereupon announced  that he  wns going to givo a grand bull in honor of  *lio officers nnd garrison of   tho fort, and  insisted that the soldiers, as well  as .their  superiors,   should    partake   of   tho  good  cheer.   Whon tho guyoty was at its height,  tho Wanderer stole into the river and pass- '  ed tho guns of  tho fort unchullenged in  tho  darkness  nnd   mado  her way to  Lu-  innr'fi plantations, somo  dh.tance   up   the  j-iver.    Tlio human cargo was soon disom- j  barked and placed under tho charge of tho  pld   rlcoflold  ncgrouH. who wero nenrly as !  Favngons tho new Importations.  Attompts  were mado  to put clothos on the savages,  '  but they looked   upon   tho garments with  fiver6ion, and somo time wos  required to'  induce thom  to'wenr even the scant; gur- j  pients of tho slaves of the rice plantations. '  Tlicy wero kept thero  for several months  and   then   taken   to New  Orleans, where  blaves that  had boen   purchased for a fow  bends and   bandanna  handkerchiefs wero  Hold in tho  market for from  $000 to $700  apicco. The owners of thc vessel paid*Cap- '  tain   Scmnics  -5:1,500 for  his services and  cleared upward of $10,000  npieco on   tho  venture for themselves.    A year had been  Required to mako tho voyage, and Captain  Semmes certainly  earned  his  salary bo- |  i'niiho of tho hazardous nature of tho oxpo- j  dltlon. I  "In thc eprlng of 1859 tho Wandorer  jigain sailed for the west coast of Africa,  and again Captain Sommos found King  D.ihominey ready to tratio on thc most liberal terms. On the second occasion ho  had to go farther up the river to secure tho  pargo, but ho succeeded In delivering ('(JO  captives at tho mouth of the river. A nnm-  jior of them died during the voyage, and j  the -Wandorer wns put lo hor best speed on '  bcvoral occasions to get awny from undo-  filrahlo acquaintances, but sho wns never  overhauled, and she arrived ofT tho Georgia  coast in December. i.mniir was again  notified, and he gave another big ball nnd  a socond timo tho Wanderer asoondod tho  Havaiinnh river under cover of a dark  night, and her cargo was disembarked at '  Lamar's plantations and turnod over to the  pld.riceflold  negroes."' '��� .. .  "The rmturo of the last cargo brought |  homo by tho Wanderer bucamo noised about  and an investigation was made which  j'ausetl iho arrest of a number of tho pur-'  tlclpants in tho affair,- iind tho trials that  followed caused o great sensation throughput tho nation, although nobody suffered  seriously.  " Tho profits wero quitp as largo as from  the first expedition, and, but for the breaking put of thojwnr and the blockading of  $he ptortat Savanna'*, the Wanderer might  have made another voyage in i860. A.s lt  was, sho was hemmed up in tho river by  the blockade nnd finally sold to the Confederate government."���-AtlantaCor. Sow  York Sun.

Burton had set hid alarm clock for 5:30,  as ho had some writing to do and knew  that ho couldn't steal timo for that purpose at the office during the day. When  the alarm clanged, hc awoke, sat up in,  bed, thought lazily for a moment and uti  t*:rly forgot his writing. It was 5:42���for  ho looked at the unwinking faco of tho  dial���when he settled bnckfornn Involuntary doze, one of those qtilck littlo naps  that overpower a man ln tho short hours  of the morning.  A few moments later ho was standing  ln a  small   inclosure  surroundod  by log  i walls.    A   brown   horso   stamped  'besido  him, and n woman, bearing a  marvelous  resemblance in face nnd voice to his wifa,  was  trying  to toll  hiin' something:    IIo  shook his head, disengaged   his arm from  her  restraining1 hand  and   tightened tho  saddle girth upon thc brown horse.  On tho  horse's back he sprang, tho walls opened  and ho sped out, vwtilo behind him  cajno  streaming a tumultuous rout of horso and  foot 6oUIicry ln   blue uniforms, whom  ho  had really failed to notice before, but who  evidontly belonged to tho walled inclosuro.  '   Thc  air   was   cool,   bracing,   delicious,  tho skies bright blue.    To right and loft  rolling  hills of considerable  height wero  crowned with underbrush nnd straggling  trees, while deeper woods extended to tho  background.    IIo  noticod that  the leaves  wero resplendent in'red and  yellow, and  he   realized  tli;;t   Octobor was   in   all   Its  glory.  |     Somehow tho ride must hnve been short.

IIo found  himself, horco  aiid all, by the side of tho log wall again,  nnd thacHich passed Inside.   Thc noxt Instant ho noticed a puff of whito smoke up  on   tho hillside,   about  1,000  fcot  awny.  Then   uinu  other  whito  puffs,   and   tho  leaves flew in spots on cither side of him.  ���Ho called his mon���called in a volco which  seomod  to give no round���and   thero was  no nols�� accompanying tho whito puttings  up there among thc underbrush.  If is men  began to skulk behind trees and walls nnd  opened' ilro  upon   tho  plncos whonco  the  whito clouds kept rolling.  A man'in black ran out upon the hillside, emerging from a clump of brush.  Th ore was a general firing and tbo'man  staggered. As he fell Burton noticed thnt  ho had changed his costume in the moment of the fall and was now arrayed in a  bluo gray uniform. IIo picked himself up  and reeled back among tbo troes. Thero  was moro firing, and Burton awoke.  Fully believing himself hours behind his  office time, ho'looked at his clock. It registered 5:40.

The drummer had just finished reading  a story of a train hold up and let his newspaper fall into his lap.

I will cito'a fow authentic experiences in  Illustration of the subject:  An American young lady was once talking with an old Mexican gentleman und  she laughingly said i-omething about having somo literary work to do.  It was good to seo tho old fellow's im-  pressivo manner and air of perfect sincerity ns ho exclaimed: jt  "Work! Miss, f--uoh lips asiyours should  never mention work. Vou should bo a  queen und wear pearls as beautiful as those  incased in your lovely mouth."  Another  young woman was  ovorheard  to   ruy in    I-'nglish   .to   hor   mother   in tho  theater: ',  "Look'nt that Mexican girl. Do you  like her? I.think her nose is too long nnd  her features are too sharp."  --Whereupon tho Mexican girl said in her  most endearing tono in broken English: ;  "Miss, as God bestowed on you all tho  attributes of perfect bounty, very littlo was  left for nio. Believe me, you nro thc sweetest creature I have laid my eyes on, and 1  never get tired of looking at your charming faro."  Nowhere  will  tho  stranger  find  moro  civility and kiiulne.-o than among tho Mexicans. |  Their houses, their families, their horses, '  tholr (lowers, their time, even   their lives, I  are  placed, figuratively, at least, "at our  disposition."   ���                                                  " I  "A los pies do listed, senorn" (My lady, I  I rim at  your feet), is tho prescribed form ���  of Fiiltitntion from n gentleman who meets  n lady, while if two gentlemen   meet they  address   one   another" ns follojrrs: "Beso n  listed In niiino (I kiss your hand).  ������Tho samo applies to written correspondence. A note from a gentleman to a lady  ends Jn this vrlsc: "Soy do, V'., ponoro,  n ten to servidor, Q. SS. PP.B." ..The Initials nro for "quo sus pies bep.i," find tho  wholo phrnso stands for "I nm, my lady,  your attentive servant who kisses your  feet."  If a gentleman is nddressed in writing,  only his hands are kissed, not his feet.  These formulas aro followed not only by  tho richer, but by all classes. As to the  poorest, I heir courtesy toward one nnothor  ij widely different from the gruff,^ boorish  intercourse of tho plebeians of other na-  ' tions.  The poor of Mexico cannot frame a ecn-  tencu without employing one or moro  terms of endearniei t:  "Como est as, mi alma?" (How nro you,  my toul?) The words they address each  other f peak of the' gentle consideration for  tho feelings of their neighbors which characterizes tho race and t maiiattsfrom spontaneous courtesy. *~~y  A Mexican gentleman will nover permit  n lady to descend the htnlrs unaccompanied. Hc takes her softly by tho hand or  offers his arm to assist her in going down  the btcps, und only talus leave of her nt  tho door, when ho does not Insiit In leaving tho lady at her own homo.  Love is more tlio business of If fo in Mexico than in nortliorn climes; perhaps because other people have moro diversions  than we have. The ladylove is ardently  styled"the very eyes of mo," but, that does  not pre*, ont thc Mexican beau, when stung  by jealousy, from denouncing love as  treacherous.  "Since thero is no help, I bow before  you, kiss your feet and depart," is thu becoming way in which the unrequited lover  takes leave of the girl that has given him  tho colli shoulder. . .*'���...  Baee, of course, has had its influence'iny  promoting this spirit  of  courtesy and ci-"  vilify.    It is an   inheritance from the old  colonial   days.      Th.,  descendants   of  tho.  viceroy and "oidores" of  Now Spain' no-'  quired by tlio exercise of power and wealth  ri certain  advantage  of .manner and tono'  .transmitted through several generations to  the Mexicans of  today, and high breeding  was the result in all classes  that enmo in  contact with   tho old Spanish cavaliers or  .'with their offspring..

In Bible times their presence was far  more disagreeably felt than in our own,  both on account of tho different and moro  slovenly mode of living that prevailed  amoug'thoso peoples and of the warm cll-  miuoof the countries of which tho Bible  tells. And it is probablo, although no distinct inontion Is mado of the cockroach in  thu Scriptures i\a among the animals of  2*.'oah, thnt lt was novortheless in tho vury  vanguard of the procession that so placidly  wended its way into the ark.

But Eve was a very  happy go lucky sort of damo nnd wns us  little troubled with household cares and  victuals ns 6ho wns with fashion, and it is  , likoly thnt tho fact of their' existenco did  not woigh heavily upon her mind.  I'ho nntiquiry of tho cockroach, however, is not reckoned "by tho thousands of  yonrs with which wo' commonly compute  our vast stretchos of' historic time, but by  tho millions  and millions upon millions.  Its beginning takes us back throughJmisty  and unfabled ages, past the epochs of  tho  gigantic   mastodon  and   tho  troinendous  glaciers that swept over tho northern part  of this land, to disappear benoath n wnrm-'  cr  southern  sun; past-tho epoch of  tho  hugo and   horrible reptiles that wnndorcd  over the  univorsal  marshlands and bogs  and. flitted   through   tho air   with'   their  strango, flapping wings,' liko tho llends in  Dante's "Inferno;" past  the long period  of  tho luxurlnnt  solitudes'of  the carboniferous forests, when   tho great forces of  nature wore at work storing away tho rich  beds ot coal  into which wo  delve  todny;  pnst  tho  time  when'whales   and   giant  sharks and son monsters lashed tho waters  into   foam, tho  monarchs  of  tho ocoans.  Tholr origin  carries us   buck  to tho very  comnionconiont of things. t They wero ono  of tho earliest of the forms of life and tho  pioneers of  insect life.    Ah somo ono ban  said, "Thoy nro tho true aristocrats of  Insects," tho kings of their kind.  thatTbo most prfihltlyi of cockroaches nro  found deep down   in what are known ns  tho silurian rocks, which were formed such  countless ages jigo that they don't nttompt  to count thom at nil.    They were not very  unlike thoir  llnonl descendants of 'today,  tho principal  difference   being as to their  wings, nnd it is probable that should ono  of these ancient creatures bo in some'way  rosurrocted   nnd   go scurrying  across tho  kitchen floor it would bo stepped ou with  as littlo thought nnd compunction  as nre  its modern kindred.    As these wings constitute tho ciildf and often the only menns  of studying,their specios, tho bodies haying in  most cases  boen wholly dissolved  by  putrefaction, it  is  perhaps worthy of  note that their development was more per-  foct than In tho presont vnrietios���exoopt-  ing tho  hind or  under wings, which  nro  nlmdst  idoiitical���nnd that thoy nro preserved In tho fossils to tho minutest reticulation of tho inombrane.  With ' tho lnpso of nges tho forms awl  shapo of the wings gradually undorwont a  change, or rnther a series of changes, as  woll ns the slzd of tho body, nnd tho original family spread out into a multitudes of  species.

Thoy woro discovered after they had  landed by somo Indians, who hurried to  Morida and gave notice of the approach of  the buccaneers. Consequently when Boo  nnd his companions reached tho town they  found the garrison propnred for them, cannons londed and all thc approaches guarded. Still the pirates did not hesitate. They  advanced fiercely to thc attack, just a.s they  were accustomed, to do when thoy wero  boarding a Spnnlsh vessel, but they soon  found tliat fighting on land was very, different from fighting at son. Inn mnrino  combat,it Is soldom that a,party of boarders Is attacked In tho rear by tho enomy.  But on land such -methods of warfare  should always bo expected.
