The shippments of concentrated by
the Sfc. .Eugene Consolidated Mining
Co., for the month of August amounted to 1000 tons. This ismot quite up
to July shipments, the cause being tbe
lack of, water with which to run the'
concentrator,'it being run at only half
its full capacity„-a good portion oi the
time. Tbe concentrates are still being
shipped,to Autofagasta, Chilli, to Guggenheim Brosr With the aid 61 the
present heavy showers it is expected
the mill can soon again be, run at its
full capacity. The new flume will b«
finished about. September 20th, at
which time there will be an ample supply of water for all purposes.
ComstaL-ld, Liuileay ttcctci).   '
Cpnstable J. M. Lindsay jeccivc-d a
terrible beating .while attempting to
arrest two drunken men in a house of
ill fame in the north end of town last
Sunday 'evening. Tlie two men were
creating a disturbance, and one of the
inmates of the bouse came down town
for the , constable. When Lindsay
wont to the house and stepped inside
'the door the two men jumped upon,
.took his cane away from him and
beat him ■ unmercifully. Lindsay
called ou.a third man who was there
for assistance, bul the man apparently
i-did n.Qt wish .to p-:M tdngtod up in the
molee, so made himself scarce., This
man, however, along with one of Lindsay's assailants was*landed in iho'leck-
up,'bnt. the other mmi has never been
raptured,      " .
The two priso-iv.1'.- wore, trice I • '~v
Government Afcent. Arm strong Monday evening, and J. A. Hurvey of Fort
Steele appeared for the defendants.
The man v.'lio was charged with assault pleaded guilty and was fined $25
and costs, and thc one I hat wasch.irged
with refusing to assist tin* ^iliepi- go'
off free.
Thore is a strong opinion prevailing
that the men were too leniently dealt

Cronbrook Herald:0Archie McVittie
returned home early in the week from
an extended trip through the oil district in the east slope of the Rocky
'mountain's and which lies—-the best of
'it—in thc Flathead country, bordering on tho boundary line between the
States and Canada. Here Mr. McA'ittie
succeeded in locating ten square miles
of land that in many placed oil oozed
through tho earth- by digging or by
upturning large boulders. In one
place a match was applied to a crevice
in the rock and a flame from natural
gas was the result. There can be
little doubt about the matter oi vast
oil deposits iu that region which only
.*.",v-.i;.- devl "ptnei't and transportation
faculties tc be productive to great
wealth,
Regarding transportation Mr. 31c-
Vitlio says it would be a very simple
matter to construct a pipe line from
the Holds to the Great .Northern
railway.
There is quite a rush being made
for these lands now and Air. McYittio
thought at.one timo he was going to
be left on the proposition, but a rustler
is seldom put,.in the rear. '    •'

CBANBROOK    ITEMS,
New York, Aug. '30*.—The long
looked for nieoting between James J.
Corbett and "Kid" McCoy, under the
auspices of thc Twentieth Century
club at Madison Square Garden, is over,
and in less than five rounds Corbett
proved himself to b'e the better man.
Keen judges of thc game who saw tonight's fight declared that it was ,the
cleverest exhibition ever witnessed in
tho ring. Up to the moment the men
stepped into tbcrihg^ opinion's as to
their respective ability were widely
divergent. Many claimed that Corbett
would prove lo be the stronger, as well
as the cleverer, and it was thought his
superb feinting and heavy slugging
that h.e pUt .McCoy- down and. out.
McCoy's friends all along have claimed
that' he was equally as dexterous with
his hahds, eyes and feet as the' former
champion, and in addition to this they
said that' the "Kid" could hit harder
than Corbett. All who have met McCoy acknowledge that his' blowes are
powerful ones, and that they sting and
cut' wherever they land. Tonight,
however, while McCoy landed so hie
stinging jabs, he did not cut Corbett's
skin, nor did he'land a single heavy
right hand blow during the contest.
,On the other hand, Corbett, when he
dropped science., and began- io ' slug,
"lauded hard "rights" and lefts _>hioh
simply rook McCoy's guard away, aiid
when Corbett found a vulnerable spot
in the region of  McCoy's  heart,   two
1 o
lefts and a right ended thc battle.

To Avoirt War With Chinu.
Washington, Aug. 30.—The United
States government, having acted ou
the Russian proposition as ici'tho witli-
drawal, of troops uuiu Peki.i. is now
quietly waitings for responses to . the
notes which have been sent * to our
various representatives for presentation to the powers. Judging by the
rates of progress made iu the preceding negotiations5 several days, and
perhaps a week, may puss before all of
these replies are received. According
tb their former expressions, all of tho
powers are agreed upon this one.poiut:/
They do not desire, to enter upon a
formal war on China.
The United States government is
trying to bring .about this result. From tho moment it finds itself side by side with Russia, whoso
earnestness can not be questioned at
this lime., thc object* now in viow is to
bring about a situation in China that
will admit cl thc beginning cf negotiations looking to the re-establishment
of order and thc cessation of hostilities
with the insurance of protection tc

Only a short  time  ago  on   the  ������-regular*  meeting   night   the   Nelson  : board was compelled   to adjourn  for  " lack of a quorum.   The members of  .-the Cranbrook and Fort Steele boards  also seem ' to. take   little   interest   in  . iheir work, and the same  can also be  i Said of  the   members   of   the   Moyie  board.      Matters   of  importance   are  . continually arising ia a. town   which  ��� should be taken -in--hand and dealt  .- 'with by its business  men.

For coffee mousse heat together in a  double boiler 1\\ eupfuls of sugar and  1*2 eupfuls of strong coffee." When the  sugar is dissolved, add the yolks of six  eggs and stir the mixture until it begins to thicken, when it must be removed quickly and stirred until cold.  Fold in carefully'one pint of cream  whipped until it is dry. Turn it into a  mold and put on the- cover. To prevent  salt water from entering paste n strip  of buttered paper around the edge.  Pack it ln cracked ice and salt so that  It is completely buried and leave it for  four hours. When ready _ to , serve,  plunge the form quickly into hot -water  arid turn it on to a plate.  The rule given above may be varied  for different fruits and flavorings. If  vanilla is wanted, use only one cup of  sugar and substitute water for the coffee, adding two teaspoonfuls of, vanilla  extract when tlie whipped cream is  mixed w;ith the custard.  A delicious strawberry, raspberry (or  peach frozen pudding may be made by  mashing the fruit, .adding to it two  eupfuls of powdered sugar ,to every  quart and folding in carefully" one  qunrtof crenni whipped.

If pineapple is used, it should' be chopped very fine, covered with the sugar  ancl allowed to stand an hour or two  before the cream is added to it.

FIRST  TIME  AT  A  SHOW  Tbe LiiKtinpv Imprensloii on the Meza-  ' ory the IMcc-e Mukcii,  Chance and a rainy night 'found a little box party at a frugal repast of old  fashioned melodrama. There was the  "real thing" villain doing a bovine stride  across the stage and masticating his  whiskers, a frail girl who looked like she  needed a three course dinner more than  the husband' for whom she was pining  and the foreman of a mine who was determined to die honorably'1!!! and for the  love of somebody.  "Do you remember the first sliow you  ever saw?" asked one.  "Yes. D was 'Hazel Kirke..' The show  caino to my little home town up in Maine.  My guardian took me to *-ee it. For two  weeks after it left I haunted our old mill-  dam looking for young'ladies who might  fall into it. I became so infernal morbid'  the doctor took' it for liver complaint and  filled me full of calomel. My sisters had  a taffy pulling at our. house a few nights  afterward. I swallowed a hunk of the  stuff ijnd was salivated for a month."  "Mine was .'Itaii'.-h No. 10,' or something like that," said another. "1 never  can forget the play. For an hour before  the curtain rose I sat-in thc gallery frontc"  row and tried to look through the drop  curtain., It seemed like an flge. ,'At last  the manhole opened and the orchestra  came up. That in itself was a hit with  nit*. Whore they came from was past understanding. Nobody near me seemed to  know,' but when the leader blow his  breath against space and thousands of  lights burst into bloom, I grabbed hold of  tlio railing and hold on.' I had no' idea  when ���the wheels would move' and the  whole theater swim off into eternity to  the music that rippled under us, yet already the groat wonderful building was-  lurching from side to side, like a ship in  a storm. Through the mass of enchantment came the' sharp, keen tinkle of' a  hcl). It struck into harmony a multitude  of sounds just as the swirling melody in  the orchestra pit swooned away. I was  lit the time devouring a bag of dates  when some bronzed denizen of the docks  leaned over the tier above- me and grabbed the bag. I was about to protest  when ho made such a hideous face at me  I sneaked away down to the other ond of  the' seat and remained breathless? Again  the boll tinkled, and up went the curtain!  A .vision of loveliness smote me to the  heart! You could have run over me with  a hose wagon, aud I would have been  glad. My lower jaw fell, my eyes opened,  aud the rest of the night I was in a  trance.  "From ^i woods where trees grew in  velvet stepped out a human being that  was,not all human. lie was part divine,  wearing boots that looked ten fcet'high:  "His hair curled in unison with his  mustache, aud across that stage he strode  like a king.,  "It was confusing. Still I knew that  somewhere on ��� earth people walked like  that. Perhaps in the palaces I had read  about iu the yellow backs. Somehow, I  s_,-eint*'d' to hnve a faint recollection of  them and to have b-nm among tbein, but  that was thousands of years before.  "I was 'with him,' for he had no more  idea of fear than a mouse has of Thanks-'  giving- day. I followed him through  duels with pistols'and with swords. 1  saw him killed three times, and three  times- he ascended and , went back to  work.1 11 marked the villain and would  have gladly gone around to the stage entrance and put him on to what was being*.framed up for him had I known  there was a stage entrance. But I  lived'to sec that same villuin got worse  treatment nt the hands of my ideal than  ever a broncho got from its buster aud  went home full of beuigu gratitude.  "That night my pillow was dampened  with tears of joy as the events of the  evening paraded themselves across tbo'  imagination. It was the initial night of  my life, wherein virtue and manhood  triumphed and villainy got its reward.

"  FORGET BUSINESS AT NIGHT  That Ih the  Only Way to Be Sore ot  Doing: Your Bcttt'Worlc.  "Every business man of common  sense knows, whether he chooses to  acknowledge lt or not, that the farther  a way, he gets in the evening from his  commercial associations during the  day, ko that his business associates or  thoughts of it or them cannot get at  him. tbe healthier he is, the wiser life  he leads���in short, the better off he is  in every respect and. the abler for the  duties of the morrow," writes Edward  Bok in The Ladies' Home Journal!  "Now, what does he get in .the city  in' the evening, even if he lives a carefully regulated life? There'is no mode  of life he can possibly follow which' is  In any way recuperative to his mental  or physical being. He has never been  out of hearing of the noises of the city.  or out of the range of its lights. Every  night he has'slept In the polluted air of  the city and in the morning has looked  out on the gray, sidewalks which he  sp.es all day long. What does such a  man know of tbe exhilarating, refreshing and blood quickening experience of  opening the shutters of his' chambpr  window upon a landscape of space and  sunshine? And, what is far worse,  what do his wife and children know of  such a blessing? ���  "Yet he deludes himself Into the be-,  lief tbat he must live in tbe city, so a3  to���be 'in touch with things.' If you  ask him what those 'things' are, you  Invariably discover that they are of a  business nature, either strictly business or some social convention which  he feels has a bearing on his business.

"Of course not," returned the man of  business. "You see, the trouble with  you is that you are alive, and genius  ls rewarded only after death. Now;  If you could arrange to die"���  "But how could I profit by that?"  demanded tho artist.  "Let me finish," said tha man of  business. "If you, could .arrange to die  temporarily, your fortune .would be  made. Just make me the executor of  your estate, drop out of sight for  "awhile aii'd you will' have both fame  and money.

Kennedy wqs the new telegraph operator,   lie <was ��.n aspiring fellow and  an  intelligent one, 'and some day he  hoped to be, a isick <iiiph,tcher, and possibly, after reasouablelapse1 of time, the  superintendent of telegraph.   He spent  the long and I&nesonie nighta in reeding 'on social O3onomics, and he knew  more about"the history of strange and  pe-ctiliar things associated with government than aimo&t anybody whose name  or fame is now suggested to mind.   He  wai. the chief' telegrapher of hia division of th�� telegraphers'labor union,  which met in the city 30 miles away, and  he was tho.inaa. who made the best  speeches   on   7t.ssd.ay   nights,   wien  lodge proceeding^ had got m far along  as the "good of the order.'"  The others  of the division thought highly of him,  and  usually they &ent htm   cs   their'  lodge delegate to tha sessions of the  iutematior.fll  oonvec ti.cn.     He   could  argue splendidly and he said he waa an  agnostic, ;  As he walked up the track this Sunday   morning   the    Sabbath    feeling  seemed to rise up as though fo offend  against  his reasoning and reasonable  agnosticism,    .across the fields came  th6 mello-wness of a church bell, and  seeming far, $ex; far away, its sound  was the sweeter for the distance.   Over  to  the right a farmer's wagon   was  creeping  along the section lim> road  as the ��leek brown horses dragged the  family toward tha place of worship in  the towrr.   'Around the curve ahead of  him there rose o quiet rumbling, and,  looking to see what/ unexpected train  was bearing down upon him, he received the hail of Michael Doolen, foreman of Section 45, several miles up the  parallel line of rails, who,  with   his  men and their women  and children,  was whirring along in the direction of  the little .pariah church toward which  the redheaded  boy  iiad  sped  several  mintites before.   The men wero on a  hand car, to which a little flat had been  attached, and this flat accommodated  the women ond children,  "1^suppose it's oil right for them."  v\fr.nedy murmured, as the twin caw  disappeared around the other bend of  o curve, "but Thut. ifn't for me.

IJc walked to the cattleguard, and,  resting, returned, and found he had  vastly miscalculated distance and time,  and that 'itwas still very early in the  d ay. He looked about and saw the handcar on a siding, and it suggested something to him. Kennedy .prided himself  on i-eiiig a liberal Eiort of person, and  the thought came to him that it would  be a fair and reasonable thing for him  to .drop into the -little church, just to  show that he had really no feeling  against religion- He''found Uie white-  painted structure with, the crosn over'  its queer,, little cupola,'and, entering,  took, tlie rearmost seat. The services  .vere nearly closing. 1 fe looked forward,  over thclicads of hiilf a'hundred devout worshipers, at the,priest in vest*  ments, which���although Ivennedv did  not know it���he had brought at great  labor from the city, for the parish was  too poor to support a resident pastor.  !f�� noted that the wor&Hpers seemed to  though answering a question of Kennedy's the clergyman said: "Who are  the believers?

" '*���     -   ���  "This," thought Kennedy, "sounds  reasonable, but ro&riaot blindly accept  their belief on ' uuitpported, unwitnessed sentimen. ^.'"Aad as he thought  upon it the voics of the soprano -rose  in glorification 'Jt, yf'&s what he Iiad  waited for,- It filled "him with great  happiness, Tho undeserved miracle  was beginning of peri'onnance.  Every Sunday after this he came ir.  after the others and took his back seat.,  Her voice had sung him almost into the  acceptance (toward which the reasoning  of the priest was powerless to persuade.  He seemed to partake of the feeling of  the singer.    He exulted with lier in the  Latin   praise of the   Redeemer.     Tie  learned the words, and they rose almost  to his lips as she eur>g.   What a woman  , she must be!    What a heart of purity  to well up in such witness of the might"  of Christian, love ond Christian mercy!

'  One day after the fcervices were concluded he advanced past the half-hundred humbl" worshipers, and, greeting  tho priest, fyiid: "Father, I want to  come into the church." His _ heart  leaped with that acknowledgment, and  (he little edifice seemed filled with thc  glory of thc Shepherd of the lost ��li<*op.  Suddenly, from tho organ loft, which,  now for the first time was visible io  his eyes, came the'swelling bound of  that heavenly voice in somo. &ong of  praise.
