In addition to this several instru-"  mental solos,   duets and, accompaniments   were   rendered   by   Messrs.  Stephens and  Carrier on the  violin  and guitar.  A special word of commendation is  due to the Misses Dryden for the  creditable rendering of tabieaus. songs  and music. And a word of thanks  will mark the high appreciation of  the efforts; of Miss Nellie Beamis, who  undertook the training of the child  of the rock from the hanging or foot  walls.: This is the first move towards ren   and   characteristic dressing  of  establishing a Bureau of Mining for  the Province.

It may be added that this was the  best of a series of entertainments  given of which the proceeds have  been applied to the erection of a  building for church and school purposes. The structure is a credit to  the town, and so far completed as to  serve the purpose for which it was  built. Divine service is held in it  every two weeks on Sunday evening,  and school will be held regularly  during* the coming year.  The proceeds realized amounted in  No Pass.  The party that was sent out some  time ago to make a survey of lands  along the proposed route of the British  Pacific railway, has returned to Victoria without having accomplished its  object. It is generally conceded by  members of the party that no pass  exists, giving access to the Chilcotin  country, from Frederick's Arm, as  they travelled 35 miles into the interior without being able to discover  one.

ATION.;.;-'. '  A recent decision, delivered by His  Honor Judge Spinks at Nelson, in the  case of Strobec v. Rettaliack, will in  all probability have the effect of settling a point, which for sometime  past, has been one for discussion among  miners. Two or three like cases  h a ve cropped out i n th is district recently, which the decision just rendered may prevent from coming into  court.  The first part o; section 24 of the  Mineral Act reads thus :���  Price $2.00 a Year.  "Any free miner having duly located nnd recorded a mineral claim  shall be entitled to hold the same from  the period of one year for the recording of the same, and thence from year  to year "without the necessity of re-  recording.  In the case before the Court the contention of Strobeck was that Renttal-  lack had not recorded his assessment  work within a year from the date of  recording* the claim. . To give an instance, in this case the claim was recorded the 8th day of May, 1894, and  the assessment, work on the 8th day of  May, 1895, thereby giving rise to the  question, when did the yearly lease,  which commenced the 8 th day of May  expire.  ' The Judge by' his decision has left  no room for further litigation upon  this "point, for he says that a mining  lease does not expire, until the anniversary of the day it was taken out  also expires. Therefore the lease  taken out on the 8th day of May, 1894,;  did not expire until the end of the-Sth  day of May following.

When you bring  me a book, dealing with what women  have done in literature, without any  apology for their having presumed to  do it, I shall gladly buy the volume.  I have not read that Ruskin put his  ability for chopping kindling-wood  above his brilliant criticism. I never  heard that the chief argument in  favor of Howells was his deftness in  putting up stove-pipes. It is yet to  be announced that Riley takes less  pride in his poems than in whitewashing a cellar. There may be  people who think that a compensatory  domestic sop should be offered to the  Cerberus of mediocrity by every woman who ventures to send her soul  beyond the four wails of the kitchen.

He had asked the Knight to take  off his silver shield and substitute a  gold one, and the Knight had refused  with scorn and contumely.  ft  . The Knight still owed for the silver  shield, and he did not care to mpr  tgage his immortal soul for a change.  "Do, as I command,' sternly demanded fhe old Duke, "or never be  a son in-law of mine."  ".Well, I don't think," hissed the,  Knight between his set of teeth, and  the.strike was on.  CHAPTER III.  The Knight bf the Silver Shield had  told the Lady Gwendoline all.  "I will flee," she bravely said.  '���Two-flees," lie. replied, heartily,  and they packed a small kit of wed:  ding things.  In half an hour they were flying  from the gray and grim old castle.  CHAPTER IV.  And fast before the old Duke then.  Three hours they'd fled together,  And if he'd caught them in the glen,  He would have mopped the heather  up with the Knight.  The old Duke hard behind them hied.

Americans who venture  iiito these swinish  assemblies generally come back bruised, besmeared  and sick with disgust whether they  sailed yachts against the Prince of  Wales or rowed on the Henley course  against the English tradesman.    It  is a toss-up whether the British aristocracy or the British middle class is  the  more  offensive.    Tastes differ.  The studied insolence of the one is  made known, and thus to show that  British Columbia   mines   can   pay  dividends, thereby giving an opportunity of our figures being compared  with other mineral producing countries. "   Incidentally it may be mentioned that the new agent-general for  British Columbia, Hon. F. Gr. Vernon,  is doing good work in this respect, as  he is constantly forwarding to English  mining journals   particulars of the  output of British  Columbia  mines.  These journals gladly publish the information, and it must, accordingly,  be very evident that the premier and  the agent-general have hit upon the  the right plan wherewith to attract  westward a portion of the   capital  less endurable to some natures than I which at the present time goes to  6 Falls &  RAILWAY.

When these are forth-  coiiiing which/vvill, I believe, be very  soon, we shall have a prbportionate  boom in the precious metals of British  Columbia to that which- is taking  place in regard to South Africa.

I  have been talking to several parties  interested in South African mines,;  and, on my suggesting that probably  a great deal might be lost as there is  so much gambling in mining stocks  and that it would be better for them  to transfer their investments to British  Columbia, the invariable reply is:  4 Large fortunes have- been and are being made in South Africa, hot only by  members of the stock 'exchange, but  large dividends have actually been  paid to the shareholders at home.'  When capitalist," continued the  premier, "see the published returns  of these companies, they naturally  think that Soirh Africa is the best  place fur them to invest in.

This makes in all nine feet of  coal, the seam sloping westward towards the valley and lying contiguous to the Dunsnmir properties.

Miss Chestic,  ���on the other hand, walked calmly  along.. Her hat and her cloak were  water-proof and there were no petticoats to swish and swash in the. rain.  "I have long been an enthusiastic  wheel-woman," said Miss Chestic to a  reporter, "and it occurred to me that  there would be no immodesty-,- but  infinite utility, in wearing bloomers  on a rainy day.

Monday night burned three small log  houses on the outskirts of the town,  near the saw mill. The loss of build  ings and personal effects amounted to  over 31500. It was only by the greatest vigilance on the part of the citizens  that the town was saved.  Bush fires have been burning freely  during the past week down the Lake,  and the heavy winds and dry weather  have by no means put a damper on  them, but on the contrary spread it  over considerable distance. Although  otherwise than burning some fine  forest we have hea rd of no damage.  On Monday night it reached the town  limites and burned some very fine  trees on the south side of Carpenter  croek, and illuminated the town for a  time.  A public meeting was held at Three  Forks last week to consider the ad-  visablity of having a -'school. The  result being .that Messrs. Norquay,  Tyrrell and Sutherland were elected  trustees. They at once .set to work  to get things in shape, and obtained  for teacher 'Mr. McDowell, who is a  brother of the New Denver teacher-  Mr. McDowell arrived here on Tuesday's train and after visiting his sister  proce edecl to T h ree.
