A company has been incorpor  ated in Vancouver, of which Mr.  Abbott is a large shareholder, to take  the Prescott and make a shipping  mine out of it. Work thus far on the  property is showing up satisfactorily.

These properties were originally  bought from Messrs. Boie and Isaac  son, by the Bremner syndicate.  Later they were turned over to the  syndicate represented by R. C. Campbell Johnston, which failed t�� make  the first payment. It now looks as if  the property were about to be placed  in the hanes or a Canadian company  that has capital, and will work it.  An extension of time has been allowed the Bremner syndicate from June  6 to July 15.  Inspecting' -The   Bondliolder.  Nancouvev parties interested in the  Bondholder were here this week looking after the property and endeavoring to formulate some plan of  continuing the work thereon. They  a re convinced that they have a very  valuable property, but are not altogether pleased with results so far.

The  [launch Denver   was  sent over to be  ion hand when the party should  ap-  1 pear.      The   trip   down   the  steep  mountain side in  the dense'thicket  ! in the dark of night,   with the  in-  ! jured lad on a stretcher,  was a very  slow one, as a trail   had   to   be cut  most of the way, and it was net until  three  o'clock   Wednesday .'morning,  that the  lake  shore   was   reached.  The party had had nothing to eat  since 10   o'clock   Tuesday  morning  and they were famished. " The  boatf  soon had  the rescuers  and  rescued:  on   the Denver   side.     Hewer was?  taken to the hospital and his injured  limb dressed.    It was found to be not"  as serious as reported;  a small cut at  the ankle   badly  inflamed. ,    However, the insignificance of the injury  does not detract any from the brave  effort of the rescuing party.  KASLO.  . Scott -McDonald  was in town over  Sunday.  J. J. Mitchell of' Winnipeg, a  brother of Charles Mitchell of 'the  Charleston, has been in town a few  days looking up a location.  E. A. Keirby, representing thej  Risdon Iron Works of San Francisco, \  spent a few days in the neighborhood?  looking up business last week. a  A. Jy Murphy was in from the  Forks on Saturday.  Michael , McAndrews was down  from Silverton last week.  S. K.. Reid of Winnipeg took a look  around the district for a few days last  .week.   ',       .' ������:<���������. ':-.-...'.  A. J. Gates, of the Gates Iron Co.  of Chicago,,,is in Easlo taking a look-  over the situation.  Capt. Moore, Spokane, Frank Cox,  Duluth, P. J. Hickey, Three Forks,  and W. H. Yawkey, rotroit, all of  Minnesota Silver Co., were in Kaslo  on Saturday last.  The woods are full of newspaper  men, S. E. Rackin, formerly of  Spokane, has lately arrived in Kaslo  intending to start a newspaper here.  His plant is on the way and the first  issue is to be to hand next week.  Kaslo vs. Rossland played two good  games of ball on Saturday and Sunday. Coffman pitched the first game  for Kaslo and was well supported  throughout. St. Vrain did good work  in the box for the visitmg team,, but  lacked support in a number of cases  .where Kaslo was allowed to score.  The game closed 8 to 1 for Kaslo.

During  the past week no new shippers have  been added to the list, but the Ruth  alone is sending down two cars a day,  mostly Carbonates, while the Whitewater is shipping good consignments,  and the Black Diamond has become  a steady shipper of four cars a week.  No ore has been received for some  time from the Washington or Wellington but they are expected to resume shipping .heavily-, next week.  .. G. A. Eastman, L. Han na and Jack  Warne went up the lake Monday to  start some prospecting work on the  Johanna claim on ���.���which, they have  reccntly secured an option��� The  claim is situated on Boulder creek  and was located last fall by Murdock  McKenzie of Kaslo. It is said to have  a very good showing.  TH03IS02TS   LANDING.  larger  Two weeks ago three young men  left New Denver on a prospecting  tour in the neighborhood of the glacier  across the lake. Monday one of them  ���came to town and reported that one  of his companions, Harry Hewer,  who, prior to the closing of the Grand  Central, was employed as'busman for  the hotel, had on 'Sunday, the 13th,  cut his leg with an axe and was in a  critical -condition as mortification had  set in. At Once a party of six men  started to bring the unfortunate lad  out of the mountains. Tuesday evening a signal fire was seen across the  lake and two boats were sent across, j  The fire was   started by ,one of the  covered a large patch of ground and  party who had come out .of tho mono-   <v0.t five  assists   and .'three put-outs  Kaslo .  Rcssland ���  On Sunday  ticularly   fine  crowd gathered to see one of the  most interesting games of the season.  Though lacking somewhat in scientific playing the game throughout  was closely contested and both teams  made a brave effort to secure the victory- Borchers and Davy were Kas-  lo's battery, while Baker and Bray  held similar positions for Rossland.  It was a batting game from the start  Kaslo making 15 hits to Rossland's  14. Clark, for the home team, made  two home runs, a two-bagger and a  single hit out of five times to bat.  Green, on third for Kaslo, did some  clever work and got credit for four  assists.    Shaw, Rossland's right field,  , (A Ledge Special.) ���  Dave Ferguson and Dan Robinson  are busy hauling in a steam saw mill  from Thomson's to Ferguson. They,  intend to commence sawing by the  end of this week. This will be a  great boon for Ferguson as they have  had much difficulty in getting in  lumber, and about fifty people are  waiting on the new saw mill to commence building.  Mr. I. G. Clink is running his new  saw mill at Trout Lake City night  and day. He commenced to cut last  Thursday, ���'��� ,  The Home-Payne people are clearing off ground on their land adjoining  Ferguson for a concentrator and other  buildings. They have commenced  the construction of six buildings.  They are also to put in a saw mill for  their own mines and building. This  country is booming. Prospectors are  still pouring in at from 20 to 50 a day.  There must be now between 1500 to  2000 men in the hills round Lardeau  and Trout Lake. New finds are announced continually. In fact so  numerous are they that it is impossible io give them mention. Nearly  every prospector has made one or  more locations, each has a sach of ore  and has discovered the best mine  ever found in Kootenay. .  ���Mr. Porter, of Spokane, is at the  Landing, and is going out with" a  gang of men to commence operations  on the Wagner Group. This is one  of the famous Lardeau properties, <?nd  Mr. Porter says it will be worked  continuously from this time forward.  George White discovered and located a fine claim on the Silver Cup lead  May 28th. The ore assays from 2400  ozs.' to 4000 ozs. A man came up  from Rossland and offered $50,000 for  the property which was accepted on  paper but not in cash. White was  invited to Rossland to draw his plunk  but when he got there he found his  capitalist had no money behind him  so he has returned a sadder but wiser  man. From this time forward buyers  of mines will have to pungle up on  the spot.  li. W. Carry, C.E., is surveying a  line for a railway from Ferguson by  way of Thomson's to Galena Bay.  One of liis party had a close call from  a bear the other day. They were returning to" camp and one of the party  went up a tree to get his bearings  as they were in thick brush. He  notified the other two that a large,  black bear was trailing them up  The other two went up trees. One of  the party had a hand axe is his belt  and the bear selected him for his  prey and went up the tree near to  him in two jumps. When the bear  came within striking discance the  surveyor slrshcd him on tne head  witn the axe, nearly scalping him,  the scalp flapping; over his eyes. The  bear quickly slid down the tree and  after pawing around for sometime  trying to find out what was the matter with his head leaped into1 the  brush and d isappeared. The three  freighted surveyors came down and  ran for the camp.  Beaton & Campbell, of Thompson's  Landing, brought in 15 pack horses,  with all the necessary furnishings,  from Calgary last week, also a new  freight wagon and a four horse team.  Beaton & Campbell have now 30  horses in their pack train. There  are now over 150 horses in the Lardeau and Trout Lake countries, and  all are busy.  A Mr. Bain from Calgary is expect,  ed in to night with two" four-horse  teams and a stage.  June 21, 1897.  Want Many Mines.  ..' A deal of more than ordinary interest even for '  a country as well known as the Cociir d'Alenc's,  is about to be consummated.

Clarence Cmi-'  ningham undertook the work of securing a bond  from the owners and returned to Spokane last  Wednesday. It is said he had secured nearly all  of the interests-required, but owing to the absolve  of some of the parties was comi)elied to wait until  they could be conferred with before cJoshiir tlie  deal. ^  The deal includes some of the most noted _r,>!d  properties hi the vicinity of Murray, and it wis-  said the first payment required would be fuOo Olio"  There are several mills on.the different properties'  the total amounting to 59 stamps.

Fourth  Year.  A BATHING ADYESTUl-E IN JAPAN.  A. when a youth was well brought up,  And piously inclined,  With a healthy constitution  And well-regulated mind.  ' But in all his life's vicissitudes  Hehodhotlearhed.jperhaps;  That what was wrong in England  Was.right among the Japs.  For tlie Japs regard stark nakedness :  In a most indifferent way;  Nor pay thej' court or homage to  Great Mrs. Grundy's sway. ..'.���  Now A. had travelled far one day,  And he felt exceeding tired,  A nd a bath to make him fresh and 'trim  He very much desired.  fl   So he ordered one in Japanese,  And a mighty time he took,  For he had to hunt the phrasce  From his wcll-bethumbed phrase-book.  At last his servant understood,  And here it will be proper  To mention that a bath out here ,.  Is very like a copper.  And that the water's heated up  Directly by a fire,  And not by taps Of hot and cold  To turn as you desire. -  Well, A. has reached his bath-room,  He has cast aside his clothes,  He-has stept up to the cauldron,  And just inserts his toes. '  But thus far and no farther,   .  For a time our hero got,  And in fact he hesitated,  For the water felt too hot.  Then he heard light footsteps falling,   y  And the soft voice of a maid.  And the footsteps kept advancing,  And our hero was'afraid.  But surely with the door fast locked  And bolted to make sure,-  As nafurally his door would be,  He might have felt secure;  But, being honest in Japan,  And used to curious scenes,  They quite dispense with doors and walls,  And are content with screens.  "Stop! Woh!" he cries in anguish���  . He forgets his Japanese���  Andat'-the maid advances, '������       ���  He plunges in his knees.  "Beoff! Be off!"he shouted,  "Get out of this!" he cried,  And he plunged in all his shoulders,  As the screens were pushed aside..",;.  The maiden gazed in wonder,  And could not imagine why  The gentleman kept crying out,  For what could make him cry?  ���-���������-���-.-���--So'she called her little sister,  Her mother came likewise;  A neighbor and ah aunt or two  All gazed in much surprise.  And one approaching nearer  Made uj) the charcoal'fire,  In spite. Of all his efforts,  To induce her to retire.  .For now the heat was awful,  And through the blithering steam  The faces of the ladies  Seemed like a hideous dream.  And next becoming frantic,  In that overwhelming heat,  ���He fancied they wcre-cannibals..  Just waiting for their meat  And rendered desperate by despair,  He suddenly arose.  . And leapt from out that fatal bath,    .  And rushed towards his clothes. .  ^ ���  But no, two maidens seized two towels,  And, to make the story worse, '  'They treated him just like a babe  Is'treated by liis nurse. ' ..   .  For, without so much as blushing.  They quickly rubbed him dry;  ���They did it as their duty;  With their mother standing by.  Comparisons are odious,  Particularly when  .Comparisons are not inclined  To favor Englishmen.  ;Btit. though the Japs have many faults  Which might be quickly named,  'Tis greatly to their credit, -  They're too honest to lie shamed.  -J. C. Harris.  Drilling Fifteen Years.  ���At Tuna, a few miles below Bradford, Pa., says  'a correspondent to the Bradford Gazette, is a well  ..thai has been drilling for nearly iiftcen years.   It  is owned by an eccentric-individual hy the name  of Mike Miller, and has already cost a small fortune.   .Miller is in reality a farmer, but a large  pai t of liis time is occupied in scraping together a  lew more dollars to punch his "oil well" deeper  into the bowels of the earth    During these many  years he has spent all his earnings in drilling this  'deep well, with the idea thatsomwhere in the hid-  ,den depths discovering a lake of the oleaginous  fluid which wil make him suddenly, and inde-  neudentlv wealthy.   So much has been said and  written about Miller's wild venture that of. late  years he has been the subject of more or less  public ridicule, and the subject of Mr. Miller's  well is not at all a pleasant one to Mrs. Miller.   In  fact, Mrs. Mil lei  dollars sink ou  mention of tlu  her.  The farim-rV  }r has seen so many hard  t of sight iu that well that th  subject has be  hard earned  .....    ;e very  oim.: distasteful to  ������11  i-  lliW  d..\vn about  -.100 f"ct-  and drilling is still goingon.   Most of the work  has been, done by Mi.llerriiiinself, assisted by a  hired man.   Recently he'disposed of part of liis  farm for oil  purposes, and  the  money thus acquired explains  the  resumption  of operations.  The well is now in a black sand, and has a show  ���ing'of-oil, which is of a very pcculiarjcolor, almosi  ���a ipurple,'. It is understood that Mr. Miller has ^  decided to drill a little further, and after shooting.i  the well put it to pumping.   If���'it proves a paying I  producer, it has been suggested that the peculiar  formation be called the Miller sand.  Not far from the Miller well Dr. E. A. Van Scoy  has recently completed a Well that started off at  the rate of twenty-live barrels a day.  ' 'i   ���   ' iUI ti ���   The Loneliest Little Isle.  Away out in the South Atlantic, almost midway  bet/reen Africa and South America and in a  slightly higher latitude than the Cape of Good  Hope, lies the loneliest isle in ������ the.world. Tristan  da Cunha is seven miles "across, and but'little  more than an extinct volcano. Nevertheless, it-  has a population of sixteen families, ninety-four  persons all told. It has neither doctor, minister,  lawyer'nor; editor. Its people live as best they,  can among the hills and along the narrow strip of  irregular plain that constitute the island.  An English corpor; 1, bearing the transparent  name of Glass, and t\\ o companions formed the  nucleus of the settlement. Once a year it realizes  the fact that there are other persons in the world,  because just that often a British war ship pays'  the island a visit and delivers the annual mail.  The oldest inhabitant acts as Governov, property  is practically held in common, there is no .strong'  drink and no crime, and the people are healthy  and long lived. ��� ,    ;  The inhabitants bf the island have their gardens  to cultivate, where they rear a good quantity of  vegetables, such as potatoes, cabbages, onions,  and some fruits. They also have their cattle aiid  sheep to tend, of which | they own eight hundred.  There are pigs and plenty of geese land poultry.  The occasional visit of the war ship referred to  offers the only market for the produce of the dairy  and the poultry.yard.

A little north of shaft 2, in which  a lift was tearing up and down, taking the excavated soil to the.surface, we came on a twelve  feet brick harricadei Tvliich effectually corked up  the compressed air, andi which, of course, had  been _rk>ved several times as the work proceeded.  Through this barricade rah two narrow passages, about the height of an ordinary man.  These were the airlocks^ A little air tight door,  just like the door of a safe.;opened���the air, of  course, being let out in the process���and we entered. The door was closed after us, and we were  left some minutes hi the lock to become acelimi-  tized to the new atmospheric conditions of tlie  tunnel beyondr To this end certain valves were  turned on, and the compressed air from the inner  tunnel poured in with the deafening roar of a.  steam nozzle.  A CURIOUS PANTOMIME.  Then followed a curious little pantomime. My!  guides, holding their noses between their fingers j  began swallowing vigorously, and signalled me  to follow their example, speech being almost impossible, as sound depends so much on atmosphere.1  I felt a cricking in the drum of my ear, and little  wonder," for the six" thousand cubic feet of air  which was being pumped in every minute was  curving the membrane inward, so thai I had to  swallow in order to clear the Eustachian tube and  get ;the pressure on each side of the tympanum  equal.  Then I began to feel distinctly exhilarated.  The increased amount of oxygen pumped in was  intoxicating me a trifle.  The journey.along the tunnel had been a little  tiring, but now! felt sprightly. Here was the  secret of youth; here was a practical demonstra-  stration of Jekyll and Hy deism. But at what an  expense! :  I was living ever so much quicker thtm the  man at the surface above. Everything was living  quicker. My cigar burned to ashes with the rapidity of a cigarette.

The recent division of the Slocan  mining division ^by the  Provincial  Government, without consulting the  interests of those with most at stake,  is quite in keeping with their general   sfcjTle of doing business.   When  the boundaries of the Slocan City mining division became known, and it  was found that Ten Mile creek was  included   in it,  quite a number of  prominent Slocan, men wrote to the  Minister  of  Mines, Col.   Baker, and  pointed out to him the injustice to the  majority in   favor of the   minority.  Some of these writers have done more  to bring the Slocan before the world  than all other parties combined, yet  Col. Baker   would not even answer  their letters.   There ivas no occasion  to divide the Slocan.   In order to accommodate   the prospectors   a   sub  office'could have been established at  Slocan    City,   which   would    have  answered all purposes.    As it is the  country is put to additional expense  to please real estate boomers, : while  the mining men Of tlie Slocan- have  been forced to   increase the size of  ��� their lungs in order to curse in a more  forcible manner a Government that  should not be let run at large.   A  few more brilliant acts like the division we have just mentioned- and  some dime museum will be offering  Col. .Baker a position in the freak department  The Boundary Creel. Times brings  a no less serious charge���an even  more serious one, in the public nature  and extent of the wrong and injury  done���against the Provincial Secre-  taiy, Minister of Mines, etc, etc.:  "The military Minister of Mines,"  it says, "is ambitious to at least equal  the efforts of the Chief Commissioner  in sacrificing the general welfare in  the interest of the private speculator,  and, consequently, when unscrupulous townsite boomers undertake to  advertise the village of Grand Forks  as a mining centre, the Hon. the  Minister of Mines aids them in their  deception by creating a new mining  division of Grand Forks, and including therein several prominent camps  adjacent to Greenwood, and very  much more conveniently situated in  the matter of recording, to Midway.  If Col. Baker and the Grand Forks  townsite boomers are willing to lecirn  the lesson which experience has  taught,   they   would   know that no  that is surrounded by some beautiful  farms, some rich agricultural lands,  but is a long distance from mines"and  minerals. - The new regulations may  be eminently satisfactory to the residents of Grand Forks and the politicians who are interested in the  townsite, but the Minister of Mines  has purchased their hosannas very  dearly, since their accompanimoiit  will be the execrations of those who  have property in the camps that have  no more connection with Grand Forks  than has Alberni district with the re  corder's office at Nelson."

It is reported from Hyderabad that  the historic diamond which was sold  some time ago to the Nizam ot Hyderabad has been stolen and replaced  with an imitation of the stone, in paste.  It is believed that it was the intention  of the Nizam to present the diamond  to Her Majesty upon the occasion of  j her diamond jubilee. The Victoria,  'imperial, or Great/White Diamond,  the most celebrated diamond in the  possession of the Nizam Of Hyderabad,  and the largest brilliant in the world/  is probably the stone meant m this  dispatch. It was.sold to the Nizam  four or five years ago for over $1,500, -  OQC, after haying made a sensation  among the London dealers, who could  find no European customer forit;  The origin of the stone is not definitely known, but in all probability ifc  was stolen from the Kimberley mines  in 1884 by a dishonest inspector,    y  It weighs 180 carats, which makes  it theVsecorid largest cut diamond in  the wdrltlj and the largest brilliant,  as the Orloff diamond, belonging to  the Czar,* which alone is l_lrger^]being,  194| carats in weiglit, is ^  ant. The Koh-i-nor weighs only 1021  carats. ,    ��� ...  "���  The history of the Kohi-noor is  obscure. According to a Hindu  legend, it was worn by one Of the  heroes of the Indian epic poem the  Mahabharata, and it would therefore  have a history extending backward  over 4,000 years. Coming down to  later tinaes^ we- find it In possessibn ot  Vikramadiiya, Rajali of Ujayin, 56  B.C., from whom it passed to his suc-^  cessors, the Rajays ot Malwa and  latterly to the Sultans of Delhi, when  Malwa fell into their possession.  Queen Victoria now possesses it.  Another beautiful diamond is the  Empress Eugenie. It is cut as a  brilliant and weighs fifty-one carats,  A third famous diamond belonging  for some time tq France is the Saucy.  Its history is not quite certain. But  it is certain that it had many vicissitudes. According to the inventorv of-  1791, the Saucy weighed 33 12/16  carats. It is now in Russia, and is  valued at what M. Heiphen considers  an exaggerated price, $189,000.  The country that is richest in diamonds at present is Russia, Among  the large diamonds in Russia the  most remarkable is the Orlovv. It  weighs 193 carats. It has the form  of a half egg. It is one of the ornaments of the imperial sceptre. This  beautiful diamond was originally  from India. It formed for a century  and a half one of the eyes of the  famous idol of Serringham in the  temple of Rrahma. The other eye  was a diamond of the same size.  The crown diamonds of Brazil are  valued, at more than $18,600,000.  The marvel among the productions ol  Brazil is the Star of the South. This  extraordinary diamond was found in  1853 in the mines of Bogagan by a  poor negress. The rough diamond  weighed 257J carats. It :s of irreproachable purity, transparent, and  taking by refraction a lovely rose  tint.    The Star of the South was cut  The  S  PROVINCIAL LAND  and MINE SURVEYOR.  P.O. Box 214.

People who aie Interested in tracing inherited  tendenies will Iind food for argument in the notes  pn Charlotte,Emily and, Anne Bronte's grandfather, given by Dr. Wright. This Hugh Bronte,  an uneducated Ulsterman of good brain, was a  novelist by nature.   As he sat at night keeping  up a, fire iii his corn kiln he would relate to a  crowd of neighbors imaginary stories so tragic  that his hearers would be afraid to go home  through the darkness. Tliey would lie on the dat  chaff round the kiln all night; and were ready  when the next story-telling evening came to listen  ���to tales equally terrifying.. However grewsdme  these stories might be, they, always ended with an  excellent moral. It was not until late in life that  Hugh Bronte learned to read; and always after  that, when alone at his kiln,he read with his book  upon his knee by the light of' the fire. Patrick  Bronte is said to.have had much of his father's  story-telling power, and his young daughters  have beeii described by their friend* Miss Mussy,  as sitting spellbound around him as he told the  thrilling stories which Emily at least afteward utilised in her writings.

BARNEY   BARNATO.  The late Barney Barnato was in many respects  the most remarkable speculator  of the century.  Of all the Englishmen who have taken part in  the development of South Africa, two only have  secured a world-wide reputation.   These have  been  Cecil  Rhodes  and �������� Barney "Isaacs, more  often and less respectfully styled "Barney" Barnato. Barnato was an assumed name, a sort of  stage name, for he began his life in South Africa  hy exhibiting a trick donkey about 35 years ago.  He was then about 20 years old. Barnato was an  English Jew and illustrated in an extraordinary  way the financial genius of his race. Up to the  point where his fortunes began to increase he  made money by leaps and bounds, and in 1895  when his good fortune was at its zenith, it was  estimated thet ht. controlled interests worth in the  neighborhood of ��100,000,000. It was the fashion  to call him J.the richest man in the world; at that  time ihe was virtually the king of the London  market. In the Autumn of 1896, when the boom  in "Kaffirs," the shares of the comparatively new  gold mines of the Transvaal, was at its height,  every man, woman and child In London with  money to invest, invested it in "Kaffirs." The  craze was the most recent of those financial fevers  which periodically attacks conservative England,  the "South Sea Bubble," having been the first.  For months it was the' controlling passion in  London, bi.t it was scsrceylis ramp nt in Paris  and Berlin. Tne shares went to unheard of  figures ;and fortunes were made in a day. The  centre of this tremendous financial outburst was  "Barney" Barnato, and he was conservatively  estimated at that time as worth one hundred and  one hundred and fifty millions of dollars.   Among  his assets was a bank originally capitalised at ���'.12.-  000,000. In a very few months its capital stock  rose in value to $45,000,000.  Barnato was born in London, but little is known  as to his early life, except that he received his instruction from a private tutor iustead of attending  the public schools. He was a younger son and at  the age of 20 went to South Africa, then a much  more savage territory than it is now, and but  scantily populated by Englishmen or persons of  English descent, to seek his fortune. The Kim-  berly diamond mine was just beginning to be productive. With his few pounds of cash he began  dealing in diamonds in a small way. He was  "lever and^pushing. Everything he touched he  made successful. In five years he earned enough  in tne retail sale of diamonds to purchase shares  in the j mines from wldch his merchandise had  come. Before another five years had elapsed his  holdings at Kimberley had become very large  aiid when the Transvaal gold fields were discovered he had profits to invest in them. In 1886  Bamato was a definite money power in South  A frica and Ibegan to be spoken of as the rival of  Cecil Rhodes. Unlike in temperment and even  more unlike in personal ambition, the two men  started in to be hot opponents, but in 1886 they  reached the conclusion simultaneously that their  representative interests could be best promoted by  combining forces, and the De Beers Consolidated  Mines were the result, one of the most valuable  pieces of property of its kind in the world.  While in Africa "Barney" married and had three  children, two sons and a daughter.  Next to Man in Intelligence.  Sir John Lubbock makes the remarkable statement that ''when we consider the habits of ants,  their social organisation, iheir large communities  and elaborate habitations; their roadways, their  possessions!of domestic animals, and even, in  some cases, of slaves, it must be admitted that  they have a fair claim to rank next to man in the  scale of intelligence. . -  There are several species of ants that keep  slaves, and one variety, the Polyergus rufescens,  is almost entirely dependent upon them. Huber  says that if this species was kept alone in a box it  would soon die of starvation even if supplied with  food.  Sir Jnhn Lubbock pays: " T hav��*.kept insolatcd  To a certain extent one' character may he read;  from one's walk.  Quick steps are said to be indicative of energy  aiid agitation.  Tip-toe walking S3Tmbolises curiosity and discretion.  Turned-in toes ore often possessed by pre-occu  pied absent-minded persons.  The miser's walk is noiseless, with short, nervous steps.  Slow steps whether long or short, suggest a gentle and reflective state of mind.  The proud step is slow and measured;   the toes  are conspicuously turned out; the legs straighten  .ed. ���..-'.���  Where a revengeful purpose is hidden under a  feigned smile, the step will be slinking and noiseless. i   - '  Wavering steps betray uncertainty, hesitation  and indecision.  Obstinate people rest the feet flatly and firmly  on the ground, walk heavily and slowly, and  stand with the legs firmly planted and a good  way apart.  ONEOFEA0H.

He said though they  were willing to make the sacrifice rather thaii  see the ,mine close down. Owing to1 the demoralized condition of stock -market it was  impossible to sell sufficient treasury stock to  go ahead without making a , great sacrifice.  Geo. Pf under, Superintendent of the Colonna,  and H. Gr. Kingsmill,. secretary for the Co-  lOnna. have taken possession for the new  owners. It is said that the syndicate paid 12i  cents for a_ little over 500,000 shares, and the  sale is considered an important one.  Two more promising South Belt propertie  are the Mayflower and Red Eagle, a large body  of good-looking ore.having been opened up on  the former, which assays from $30 to ��100 per  ton. The ore carries iron pyrites and galena,  and the ledge runs from 4 to fi feet in width.  The ledge has been opened on the Red Eagle  adjoining, and shows up pretty much the  same. Ti_i_. grade of ore is above the average  of the camp, and work is to be pushed on both  properties. The C. & W. Ry. runs through I the  claims, and the cost of handling will be very  low in consequence,  " Two good quartz leads have been opened on  the I.X.L., one of the oldest properties in the  camp. It is on O.K. Mountain and is a free-  milling proposition. The ore is now being  crushed in the O.K. mill, and enough of it is  in sight to keep the .machinery in '"motion for  a long time.  The winze on the Jumbo is down 40 feet, in  solid ore all the way, and a contract has been  let for further sinking of the same. Considerable free-milling ore is being found in the  lower workings of the mine.  I was shown some very fine samples from the  Sunset No. 2 yesterday, taken at a depth of  only six feet. , The ore looks very similar to  that of the Le Roi. This is also a South Belt  proposition and almost adjoins the townsite  behind Ross Thompson's new mansion.  The Doily Varden, Plymouth Rock, Bessie,  Violet and Handy, five claims on the west spur  of ,Record. Mountain, have been sold to the  Anaconda Cons. Q-'old Mining Co., consideration ��1500.      ;  A deal is oh for acquiring the Prospector  group, situated on the western spur of Record  Mountain and not far from the Victory-Triumph, Velvet, and some other good mineral  oiairns now coming into prominence. Assays  ���from surface outcroppings went 7 per .cent,  copper. $2 in gold and two ounces silver.  A good strike is reported on the Velvet, ad-,  joinig the Victory-Trumph, the ore carrying  '18 per cent copper and nearly. >;33 in gold:   All  the ore in that section carries  considerable  copper.      ���: ''-..:  The Flo;-sie L, not  far from  the  Jumbo, is  showing up well with development work. A  fine body oi quartz has been uncovered in one of  the tunnels, which is in about 150 feet  The Le Roi company lost the day in the suit  brought by Seeley against Moynahan, a former  superintendent of Le Roi mine, who staked, on  behalf of that companj', a fraction lying near tlie  big mine last year. Seeley adversed the title and  wontheca.se. ^y .-  The ore bin of the Great Western is full and ore  is being shipped at intervals.  The Poor Property, a claim on the western  slope of Deer Park mountain and about three  miles from Rossland, has been proved to be good  property. Some ore brought iu assayed over*20  in gold.  Work on the Palo Alto was stopped on account  of want of funds, and not because the vein petered  out ' //������  The funeral of Father Le May, the Catholic  priest who had been in charge of the church here  ever since its establishment, was very largely attended, the city band playing a requiem march.  The event of the week was the ba.ll game between the Hot-lkcepers and the "Never Sweats."  The umpires, Dan Thomas and Hank O'Connell,  would not permit either side to win and the score  stood at the close 17 to 17. In the evening the  return to town was triumphantly led by the city  band, which serenaded several of the hotels on  Columbia avenue and Spokane street, and got an  invitation to "come-in-side." This was in every  case responded to, and the bandmen filled up on  something stranger than wind.  ' A ���     ".'     ������. .   ' -���      ..-���      '..    DrOGI-NttS  JUBILEE   AT   SANDON.

A royal  salute of 21 guns was fired early in the, morning, with dynamite, and each shot was enough  ,to raise the dead.
