Holders of |the shares  are not inclined to part with them  at present prices, as they are fully  satisfied that it will go to par and  beyond'par within a short time.  The increase in the price - of copper'is one cause for the. advance.  Another is the excellent .condition  of the mines of thp company in  the Ito3sland, Moyie and Pheonix  camps, o A thirel cause is the large  production of ore'from the���seve'r-  al mines of the oempany. besides  this the smelter is, reducing more  than 1,000, tons.- of ore a day,*- the  refineiyis turning out'about 6!)  tons a day and "a good; prolifc is  being made liy the, industrial section of, the a company's. assets..

' '  foometimes there is more than  one actor iu these tragedies of the  frontiers of civilization. In the  case ofHaiues' of the Na'as there  was a little boy. Haines, so we  learn in the last .budget of news  from np coast, was>. white man  whose Indian wife had gone away  for a time to =vis>ib her friends,  leaving her four-year-old son she  had borne with her^father. Then  came the heavy rains and the  flood. Haines' boat, Sthis only  means of travelling to the.distant  settlement from which he obtained supplies, went adrift, aud he  swam out after it and brought It  back. Failing, probably, to take  sufficieut care iu the matter of  dry clothes, lie fell ill and realized  that since no help could reach him  iu time he would die. The boy  might die too���of starvation.  That must be avorted, if possible.  So with such strength as he could  muster and with the courage of  the true pioneer, he prepared a  quantity of food, told tbe child to  eat it when he was hungry, but  uot to disturb him as he was  going to sleep' for a long time,  bade him put a cloth over his father's face when father went to  sleep, and not be f 1 ightenod if he  did riot; wake up as usual���aud  laid himself down and died.

The many avocations and adventures of Lord Lvveden, who distinguished 'himself by being the last to  leave the ill-fated Argonaut, have  caused him to be called "the rolling-  stone of the peerage.", Before succeeding his uncle in T500 as third baron, his lordship had been a private  soldier in the Royal Artillery, utility  actor at the Haymarket, and waiter  in a ,Bot\ery eating-house. He hael  been steward on an American coasting-vessel, hael toured the States with  a fit-up company, and had run a  company of his own in England. Later,   he   owned   nurseries   of   his   own  planning   at  Stanwick,   Higham ^Fer-  ft: ���"Shiloh's  Cure   will   alwTv��   rors*   and   introduced   a   new   tomato  oiinons uure wiu always  knowns  bv  his  initials���"P.V."--to  cure,    my   COUghs   vand     COlds."   gastronomic world.

His  lordship possessed considerable engineering skill and knowledge,__and before he succeeded to the peerage he  once visited 'some engiujfcering works,  dressed very much as an engineer  would be The foreman of the works  got the impression that his visitor  was an engineer out of a berth. Meeting him a little later in Westminster,  with his father, conversation about  the visit to the works was resumed,  and the foreman observed that he  knew a berth that might suit him.  "What do you'say5" said the future  earl, turning to his father, who replied that 11" bin son could be spared  from, his other duties he saw no objection. "What other eluties?" asked  the surprised foreman. Explanations  followed;���'-'������"riiid the. foreman learned  that his friend was not a practical  engineer out of work, but the next  heir to a peerage. ,        ���   '���'  Fascination jof Crime.
