Last Tuesday the contract  for  cutting the lumber  for  the  St.   Eugene  concentrator   was  awarded  to    Park,  Mitchell   &   Co.   of  Moyie.   .Several  other bidders   were   in    the  field,   in-  .eluding A. Leitch   of   Cranbrook  and  S. A. Bieglowof Creston.    The  quantity of lumber amounts to   some  300,-  000 feet, and is to be delivered at  the  St. Eugene siding in the south  end. of  town.    Engineer    Gauvreai^has  laid  outJhe grounds for,a $pur at the 'sawmill and   the grading' and   laying ~of  the rails will begin at once.   The lumber, will be loaded ou cars at   the   mill  aud shipped to the siding.    A   portion  of the lumber is to be delivered by the  first of June, at which' time tlie building will be started.    Some of the   timber necessary  to  fill   the contract  is  yet to be got out, and  G.' R. Muit,   the  manager ��� of  the company,   will  soon  start a lugging camp for that purpose.  About 20 men are now employed at  the   concentrator  site excavating  for  the foundation oi the mill..

JVroyie and Grand Fork* Troulile.  Thc following editorial on the Moyie  and Grand Eorks railway trouble appeared in the Ottawa Evening' Journal of May 5th under-the 'caption of  "Railway Injustice."  The facts which are coming out  regarding the Canadian Pacific railway's  treatment of mining towns in  British  Columbia   would   indicate   that    the j  oflicials of   that,   company   are   in   a  class akin to   blackmailers.    In   referring two oi three days ngo fo  the  case  of the town ot,Moyie/which the C  T.  R. seemed to have  boycotted   because  the owners would not  make a   gift  of  half the town site to the   railway,   the]  Journal supposed that Ihe  occurrence  might he exceptional, and 'not' deserving of strong hmgnagc.    The facts  regarding   the   larger '-town   of   Grand  Forks as   developed   at   the   meeting  yesterday of the railway committee- of  the House of Commons show that the  Moyie ease   is not.  exceptional���that,  ! on thc contrary,   the   Canadian   Pacific railway company seems to  degrade  this country   and   disgrace   itself  by  systematic maltreatment of such communities of interests as circumstances  phicu in its power.  Grand Forks on the Eet'tle River  is  one oHhc three largest   towns  of  the  rich mining district of British Oolum-  [bia���Rossland, Nelson,- Grand   Forks.  | It wa��  an  incorporated   town  before  ' (he railway fairie,- Nits' a ptfp'tflatio'u   of  twelve hundred,-and rfn1 assessed valuation of o\*cr$i$3$9&   AUb' distributing  point   tii   ihd   tfh'ole   J^o'rfn'drtry  country; it fs c\S t$ihigg':'��t,\ fcif go1'in  British Columbia a --targe zitid liripoP  tant place,- precisely 6'iie oi tlie  place  representative,  one   Wilgress, ' is.  asserted by Mr. Armstroug, president  of  the Grand Forks Board  of   Trade,   to  have replied   that the  C. P. R.   must  have what it asked   or   it   would* run  outside   and   around   the   town 'and  '���'cause   the   grass    to   grow   in    the  streets."    The   Grand   Forks    people  held out, the-C. P. R.  did  circle   the  town, and placed its station two arid a  half  miles  distant.    Understand    the  the effect of this���where  a  C.  P.  R'.  station   goes' in   that country,   settlement follows, and any rival settlement  is injured   and   probably   wrecked,   to  the ruin of those  who  have  invested  their money.  , Thus not only are the twelve   hundred people^ of  Grand  Forks,' a  progressive and important  mining   town,  deprived of the railway facilities which  tlie C. P. R, is paid by this country to  give to such places, but�� a  rival   town  is threatened which   will   "cause   the  grass to grow in   their- streets," as  the  C. P. R. agent worded it, and ruin   the  pioneers   who   have   invested  money  there in their   effort  to develop   the  country and their own fortunes.  Tactics of this  kind   of  which   the  C.-P. R.  thus stands  convicted  seem  incliscribably   meau   and   dirty.     No  wonder that in many   of  the   western  United   States, where   similar   tactics  have marked the   history   of  railway  corporations, the people as   they  multiply   turn   on   the   railways   and   at  times   play  ducks   and   drakes  with"  what   the   railways   whine, about  as  "vested    rights."      Robbery   has    no  vested rights that any one is   likely to  respect if he can help   it,  and   if   the  railway   corporations   are   robbers   in  the days of  their  power,  when  their  victims are   weak   and   few,  nemesis  will   come   as   the    people'    become  stronger.-  A railway corporation .which will  follow the course illustrated by the  Moyie and Grand Forks cases will  likely enough show a similar spirit in  every dcaHn'g with the public if circumstances a'.^e favorable.

Davis,    who   took  John Day  and Tom Rader in as partners,   staked1  the first claim, Scott and   Diamond'a  second and Day  and   Kader a   third.  The ledge can readily  be   traced  over  the   three   claims.    Pieces  of  quartz  from the ledge  have  been  pulverized'  and washed which produced a surprising amount of flour gold.    Samples of  the ore will be assayed and if  the  ore  proves to be even  iialf as  rich   as  it  seems to be, the owners of the  claims  have a bonanza.  Dauce may 34th.

THE   TWb  GIIH..P.
Virginia    JCewis,    though    living    in
, Now   .England,   would   nevor   bo   mistaken for ii native ol' that. ser-Uun. She
Jacked   tho-   phlegmatic     tenu)er;imenl
of the people about her, notwithstanding the fact tliat she had  been I'i'aivil
anions   them.       Her   environment   had
undoubtedly affected  her character to
tlie extent that outwardly .she moved,
spoke,  and acted  like her neighbours.
Uut   there   wu.s   a  certain     suppross-jd
emotion,   always  distinguishable,   however    well  controlled,   that   bespoke   a
birthplace   in   a   warmer   clime., Tlow-
r  ever   mildly  sir?    might    address   her
friends, and there were few of gentler
speech,   the   slightest   antagonism   b"-
irayed   by   anyone     present   would   be
met  with sin   instantaneous  answering
Hash of ht;r J us irons dark eyes,  which
betokened   danger  if   the   .subject   was
.pursued.      Sol   one,   'not  even     tho:-'?,
most  dear to her,  bad  the oouraye lo
take liberties of conversation or of act
with'  Virginia     .Lewis.       Nevertheless,
she was the best beloved and most popular  young  woman    in , the   township.
Half the young1 men the'country round
were   her  adrhirers,     redely   to   beoorea
obedient   servitors   in   exchange   for   a
friendly nod.      Jtarer still, ;she had no
enemies anions: the women folk.
She was not beautiful, yet by many
called so. J think this was because of
the marvel of her eyes, wliich. always
brilliant and'ever restlessly .moving, as
though to absorb all about her, attracted with a fascination  or magnei-
ism   which   none—resisreu: it""~was no
•wonder that the rays of centime intelligence shed by those orbs should have
been   mistaken   for   beauty,   for,   after
all,   it   is  'expressiveness   rather 'than
symmetry,  of    lineament    which, men
most admire in a woman.
'   When at  rest,   there were hard,  set
lines   a.bout  tbe   mouth   which,   to, the
physiognomist, unmistakably proclaimed her possession of that excessive Vciil
2 ower  and   dogged    persistence  which
.Squire   Olnev  had   truly  mentioned   as
characteristic traits.      Jdr. Barnes had
said  that he would  not expect  to surprise her again into a betrayal of herself   or  her   purposes,   'and   in   this  he
showed a. keen perception.
She had been very much startled by
the  abrupt  entrance  of   the   two   men
! v.*hen she wa~s vet a child.
•She  was  t:vidently  disturbed  at   the
discovery, for^ho gazed at it Ion*? and
earnestly.       Perhays    her    conscience
troubled   her.   and   the   thought' came
to her that even at the moment when
he  was killed  her uneie  had just been
Irokinv,   at    this    picture    of  herself,
thinking-   of  the   time   wh<m,   a   young
and mi motive child, she- had  been his
idol, and then ol  the p-jst  week, when,
b<-foie all   their "friends,   they  nad  an-
tpgonized their wills.     She threw her-
st.lf on ih.- bed,  buried her fate in her
bands, and for some minutes she sobbed   lik<    one   in   dire   distr. -is.       Prest ntly,  rising from  he.- recti,nbent ]>o-
I silion,  controlling her emotions, by an
I effort   of Vill.   she iirst hid  the  locket
j in iier dress, as she had dono with the
let t err--, and  theii bathed  her face and
went   to  the window.     She looked   toward  the  summer-hou.se,   but  saw  no-
l thins; of the defectives.     Turning., she
■ hurriedly xiul ou her hat, arranged ber
I toilet and started  out from  ihe house
,  in   tbe  dirtction   of   the  posl-otlice.  •
She   thought   that   she   had   avoided
tbe  observation -oi rlie detectives,' but
in   this,   n.s   she ' herself   subsequently
suspected,  she was mistaken.     Jleaoh-

however, she caught a glimpse of'Burrows, and as he immediately withdrew,

she at once decided that he was there
to watch ht-r movements. Tims she

of mailing- the letter herself, which
bad bet'n her object in coming out.
She went on to the bou&e of the Marvels.
J^einj; on terms of closest intimacy

ly entered without knocking, and wtnt
into the parlour-.- "lieie. seated in front
of n rousing log- tiie, she found Mrs.
Maivel. bi.sily enems'i-d with some
knitting, and evidently ignorant of tho
fact that at thnt very time grave
suspicions., wore '•entertained against
her son. The old lady politely rose
and welcomed her visitor, but Virgil ia. without accepting her invitation
to be sen ted, at once inquired for ber
daughter Alice.,
"Alice is not out of bed yet," ,said
tbe mother. ,".She sent me a message
at breakfast time . that she had a
headache, and preferred to sleep. J?ut

'iiap, and thzfl " a hcadachu " was often
a  con van icr. l - excuse.
• Virginia at nnot; went in search of
her friend. Ascending one flight of
stairs, she entered Alice .Marvel's bedroom. Alice was in bed, but nor
asleep. On tbe contrary, she; seemed
very.wide awake, although completely
absorbed   with   her   thougnts.
A moment's description of this voting
lady may not be amiss. Though, like
Virginia, a brunette, 'she was nevertheless  totally different in appearance
"iUurLln-cdJ   My God,, this i* frtyhtfid!"
-    -         i  ni.-ie.sr.  toiany oinercnt in appearance.
and   their    subsequent    'announcement j Her friends called   her pretty,  and  the
that they were detectives.     She notic- '
ed that Air. Barnes had kept tlie empty cartirdge   shell  which  had  dropped
from   her  lap,   but in, the  moment   of
her surprise, site  had   not  time  to  decide   upon   the  purpose  she   was   bent
upon  accomplishing.   • When  they left !
,her,  she  sat  down  nnd   meditated, for
some  time.      Presently she arose,  and
it was evident that her plan iiad  been
formulated.     She took the pistol from
the cabinet, where Mr. Uarues shrewdly guessed that it was.
Whatever had been her reason for removing-   the   shclb which   Mr.   Karnes
had   taken  it was  plain  that she  now
considered  Iit  purpose    unattainable.
Opening the drawer of her bureau, she
took therefrom a small mahogany box,
-which    she unlocked.     Jn it were several  pasteboard packages of  ball   car-j
tridges. One. however, contained shells I
which   bad  been  exploded.      She  next
withdrew a cartridge  from  tbo  pistol,
and in its stead inserted an empty shell,
being careful  to see that the hammer
exactly rested upon the 'indentation in
the   rim.      Thus   ic   is  evident   that   if
f,he had  removed  from   ibis pistol   the
empty    shell   which    Mr.   Barnes   had
picked  up she must have reloaded The
■nc-anon prior to his entrance. Nov she
Vv'as restoring it to its original  condition.     She threw tlie pistol on the bed,
as   though  desirous  that  it should   be
readily found.
Next   she  opened     a  drawer   of   the ,
cabinet   and   took out    two pieces   of I
folded paper.      One of these was a du- i
plica!e of that found oy tbe detectives,
bearing tbe words,   "If 1  am cluad  in j
the morning, my murderer is  ," except   that,   as   Mi*.   Barnes   had   guess- i
ed,  this one bore a name,  tbe sentence
being completed.     Virginia scrutinized I
this   for  some   moment.--.,   sighed   deep- j
ly   and   refolded   it.      The .other   was r|
also a  half sheet and bore a few lines ;
addressed   to 'herself.   ,   She   read   this j
several  times, and   then  folded  it also, j
placing both papers in her dress. '
\ Approaching   the   door   which   com-
m.unicafod   Willi   the   parlour,   she   list-
enVti attentively for a few moments
and, then entered that apartment,
whR'h was empty, the detei tives, by
this time, having gone out. urinr. tbe
lawn. Peeping . from tbe window,
careful that she ber.-elf should be
hidden from sight by thc curtains, she
saw Mr. Ha.'uos and Jiurrow:; near tbe
summer-house. She watched them
until they v. ere again approaching the
house, whereupon she leturned to her
own room. Here she remained till tbe
detectives bid made the map of the
grounds ami again sallied forth toward
the   river.       This   time     she   watched

tinned   her attention   to  the  band  an I
examined   a ring on one finger.     This

.steppe I on   the  hem  of ber dress and

and, though' they were tightly, clinched,
she' at   length   succeeded     in   relaxing

to be a rinall .gold locket. Opening

years older than his sister, and immediately thereafter settled in Lee
Thus Alice was now in her Iwenty-
lifth year.'
Startled from her meditations by the
abrupt entrance of her friend, Alice
stared at ber a moment in silence and
then  suddenlv exclaimed :
" Is   he  dead ?"
" Is who dead '!" - asked Virginia,
amazed at  the question.
" Your uncle, y\y. Lewis," replied
Alice, at which Virginia was so bewildered that she- stood speechless. Knowing that the Tad of her uncle's death
bad bven so recenty discovered and also
that /like bad not l"ft her own room,
Virginia v.ns a I a loss to understand
how she had become aware of (lie true
state of affair.--. Jt occurred to her
lhat perhaps, after all, the maid-ser-
Mint had informed Alice, but in that
ease ii should have been known also
by Mi-;. Marvel! whereas that lady bad
acted in a way vuiieh preedutied the
supposition that the news had reached
her cars. Kooovermg somewhat from
the iir«t effects of her surprise, she
acked :
" Mow d(d you know (hat he is dead?"
Alice  .started   at   this   question,   and
then,   as   though   awakening   livjin   a
dream,   replied :
I      "I    don't    know   v. hat   T   have   b°en

A moment later. A lice, with one bound,
leaped from the bed, and, rushing- up
to Virginia, exclaimed excitedly :

to go early and  conceal  rnvselC in   the

men to see the advantages of a national
system of education, ami the urgent; need
of well-trained teachers by whom young
minds might be guided in the first stages
of their growth.
The publication of "Nicholas Nickleby"
freed England from the low class   of private schools, aroused a widespread    interest in national educationt and   the better
training of teachers, and helped to reveal
tlie fundamental principle   of   true discipline in home or school, that all coercion
is   dwarfing    in   its   effect  on- character-
gro^vth.    There   are   many   teachers and
parents who still need to learn   that even
the   most   refined   methods   of   coercion
cripple the individuality of the child and
prevent the development of ils   true   selfhood,    the   divinity   of   its   nature.    For
them "Nicholas Niuk-leby" is odd  of   the
best of   all   books.    Tbey   should i-'.'id it,

' Now, 14 times beforo Miss Foslor hnd
not been in earnest, but this time sho was.
,l"nfortunately the fact that, Hhn, carral
greatly for Cady had not prevented hor
from writing to G luces ter moro nfTooMon-
atoly than prudently in order to keep him
—t'other dear charmer who was away—
upon her string .so long as it would hold
him without snapping, and the letters,
Vent while 'sho was actually engaged to
Cadj', were going to full into his hands.
It, was a desperate situation, but. for all
her blue eyes ami curls nnd bewildering
wiivs. Miss Foster was tho woman to meet
it.
After a timo sho rose to her feet and sot
her lips. It is u peculiarity of Cupiti'e
bow lips that they can set upon occasions.
Sho know that Ondy had not yet received
those letters, anil she determined that he
never should.    Sho would rob tho stngo.
Guard mounting was ju^t over, and the
stage was not due until noon. Kitty set
a lug hat a-tilting upon her curls and
walked down to tho postoflice. Fate, with
lher partiality for tho brave and fair, willed that tho postmaster should havolefthis
desk. .Miss Foster pushod open tho gate
and wenc belli ml tho rail. Tlio keys to the
niailbag hung upon their hook. .Sho put
thorn in her pocket. JVhen tho postmaster
came back, she was placidly marking his
clean blotter with the letter stamp
"If you please, Mr. .foncs," sho said. "I
want this letter rog;.sU:icd.;
An hour later Idiss Foster reined up her
horse on the top of a risoand looked across
the flat stroteh   of  grcasowood and cactus    ' V[-•.
and   sago.     Far   mvny n tiny   speck was    .,.,, .'
crawling toward her along the white road.
It was tho stage.  Kho had been born upon
the plains, and sho  had an   unfailing eyo
for Its distances   Thoro would be full half
an hour to wait.    Sho cast about for somo
way of killing timo and found ndeep, wide
fiSsuro in tho   parehud earth.     It appealed
to hor daring     Hho put her hor.-o to a run
and  jumped   it  timo aiid  again until i;o
was winded.     Then  she rodo again to tlio
crest of  tbo   slopo.     Tho  stage was near.
•She dismounted, felt of the girths and sat
down, bugging tlio tiny noonday shadoof
a nu'.squitc bush, for the sun was burning
down from ;i hard, blue sky.     A   big   rod
nut was  carrying   a   hectic's  wing ninny
times larger than itself.    Kitty watched ifc
tinti! she beard   tho rattle of  traces as iho
stngo climbed the  other side or   thu slopo   I
Then she commended   ber soul to henvon
and   brought;   iier  quirt  down   upon   tho
horse's black Hanks.
Tho stage driver drew up bis stock, and
tho one passenger put, out his head aud
shoulders and gir/cd at tbo slender gray
figure rising alone in tbo nildst of tho
prairie.
, "Whatever, Miss Kitty"-— Tho driver
stopped fchort. Ho saw tbo horse grazing
off a bunch of stumpy grass 100 yards
awny Kitty went a stop nearer and laid
her hand tin the wheel. .Shu had seen that
there was no woman in tho stage A woman would have upset all her calculations.
.Sho raised her big bluo eyes Tho mon
v.-ho could havo resisted tlioni vvcro few.
Those in tho stage listened now ton, talo
calculated to melt, a heart of stone
"J was  just out for a little   ritlo," said
Kitty, "and   my   girths   w< ro   loose,, so  I
dismounted to cinch   up, mid   that horrid
Dandy got, away      If you bad not conic, I
don't, know whatever 1 should havodoiie."
Miss   Foster would   not   havo' been  tho
woman sho was if tears—tho genii of  tho
lamp of fair femininity—had not risen at
her will. '   Tho   driver looked again at; tho
horse and  back   nt ..Miss   Foster.     Ho bad

SOMETHING MORE THAN A PURGATIVE —To purge is the only effect of
many pills, now on the market. Parme-
led's" Vegetable Pills are moro than » purgative, "'hey f-.trengtheu the stomach,
where other pills only weaken it. They
cleanse the blood by regulating tho liver
and kidneys, and they stimulate where
other pill compounds depress. Nothing
of an injurious nature, used for merely*
purgative powers, enters) into their composition.

The Blood is the very essence of life.
As it courses through tbe sy5,tem it carries
.with it, if pure and rich, nutrition to every
cell in tbe body. If impure, it spreads
disease. If thin and watery, it fails to
noui Lsh, hence we have weakness, debility and decay.
It is tbe wonderful power 3.B.B. has
in purifying- impure blood, making thin,
watery blood rich and red, that is at tbe
bottom of its marvellous success in curing
disease. ',
Those who are pale, thin, weak,
troubled with blotches, pimples or eruptions of any kind should take B.B.B.

The" Silverton ftilverlonian .justly  criticises ,the map of the sou thorn portion of East and .West Kootenay, accompanying the report of the' minister of mine's:   "Oti'ifc," it says, "Kus-,  , k'onpok,,Davie, Balfcmi', 'Wardnqr and  Argenta, places principally name, are  printed in a larger type than that  used fot; Fort Steele, llosslitnd or  Nelson, Silverton which in the last  year shipped more ore than all .other  lake points   combined,  can   be found  ' with -a good microscope.

A famous beauty  was this Miss Phoebe Poindexter, and a  most captivating picture she made^ in  the eyes of the captain of artillery, as  she  sat  thrumming: tl^e keys of   her  harpsichord, after replacing the empty  wine g-lat-'s on. the table near her.   The  latter was a handsome young- man, apparently thirty years of age, with'a  perfect air of good breeding- and evidently of some graces, for'he had just j  finished a solo on tha flute to the ac- |  ' companiment of the yotmg'lady. ��� j  "The fact is, Miss Phoebe, I hardly j  know what I - should do - with myself,  were it not for the possibility of riding  out here to spend9 an occasional afternoon with you���or should I say, both  in  gallantry  and truth, .every' after-  , ,, ...,., noon with .you?   The town is simplv  turn of the   country,  it   is  ridiculous,   too dull for a soldier, now ,that Lord  Coming, as it does, from the depart  ment of mines, one would naturally,  imagine that the towns having the  mines and shipping the ore would1 ,bc  (he ones given tbe greatest prominence.' However,,, in the map in  question we find it just the re-  Verse.

I must be saved,  madam, or your own loyalty will be put  in question."'  "And, pray, what can I do?" asked  the girl drawing herself uji to ligr full  height and, looking at the English officer with scornful and indignant eyes.  - "You can tell them that there is no  one 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?"  -" "It ia a case of necessity���quick, they  arc approaching on both sides. Tbey  have been informed.   It is a trick!"  "Where will you hide?" asked the  girl, with an insulting emphasis on the  word "hide." '   ������=  '  "You will  tejl 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 the captain,"  "and there only if he be a gentleman."  Saying whicli, the captain darted up  the stairs and entered Miss Poindex-  ter's own chamber.  JEc had no more than closed the door |  when a lithe, athletic young officer in  the partisan cavalry leaped over the  railing of tho veranda, and stood, em-  barrasseil and hat in hand, Jbowing before the'-young mistress of thc mansion.  .   "Phoebe!" exclaimed the young soldier. ' '  "'Would it not- be better 'to address  'me as your .prisoner?" answered Miss  Toindcxter. "Jf I am not mistaken, you  have surrounded my home with armed  %oIdiers and.have come yourself on no  gentle errand."        ���        '    '  "Prisoner Phoebe?" answered the patriot captain.    "I would nev,,er wish to  holdpyou prisoner, save in the bonds of  love.   My presence here needs an explanation and 1 will make it." I have received information that an English officer , is visiting you this'afternoon.   It  is a matter of duty.   I have been ordered/fur in advance of the returning  troops of Marion and Sumter for the express purpose pf catching some of the  officers at the garrison at Charleston'  off their guard; and I expect to appear  at the very gates of that citi' before I  am done and let them know that, far  from being defeated, as1 they suppose,  Gen. Greene's army has drh-en theirreri  coats from the Carolinasand is chasing  Cornwallis himself to the sea."  .. "What   a   romance!" .'laughed   the  young Jady.  "I1 wish I had time for romance," said  the officer; "there could be no more delightful opportunity. Only when this  war, is over will 1 be able to ask you tO  reward a love that has been faithful  to you ever since we were children-  But to duty. Arc you harboring an  English   officer ' here ?"
