It pays sonic people to cmne west  :  A townsite has been located on Wilson :  creek,  about   15  miles 'from   the lake.  Since the  recent   big strikes   made on  properties near the head  of  the  creek, !  there   has   been  a   big   rush   to  locate'  claims. !  Little things are of much  importance j  in   this  life.    A u got into the e box in j  the   Nelson   Tribune   office,  the  other  .morning, and when the paper came out  all the world wondered what the, proofreader had in his head.

Bardo   Anderson   and    his    partners  lave a nice, showing on their claims,  IS  ' miles from the mouth of Wilson  creek.  The standing  wires   of  the   Ivanhoe  tram are now being strung.     The. run-  !omr.   and  that had the men acted  j with more reason and less haste the  i trouble could have been averted. The  j fact, that Manager Scott has always  i treated his men well is sufficient ground  j for the belief that he would have coin-  i plied with the demands of the men in  this case had tl.iev been made in a more  cove, where a pier has been built,  whence 10,000 tons of ore may be loaded  in a day. The laden cars run down an  incline by gravity and are upset automatically, cheir contents falling' into  one of ten pockets constructed in the  interior of the pier. Each pocket takes  1,000 tons, and can be emptied into a  steamer's hold in ten minutes. Two  ships a day can be loaded there when  business is brisk. The output for seven  months last year, was 310,000 tons.  From 1.000 to 1,500 men are employed  this year, as the output is to be trebled,  and to do that the force of employees  will have to be still further augmented.  For years the surface workings will  continue,and even when regular underground mining is required there will  be none of the deep descents associated  with coal and copper mines.  "The ease of working and the proximity to tide-water make this deposit  one of the. most advantageous from an  economic industrial point of view that  capitalists could possess. The cost of  mining the ore and putting it on shipboard is but 25 cents a ton, and the  freight to Canada only 25 cents more,  50 cents being charged for its conveyance to Europe or the United States.  It is in great demand in Germany,  where ironmasters work it in very conveniently with poorer ores, and large  quantities of it are also absorbed at  Philadelphia and Baltimore. The price  at which it sells there yields the owners j  of the Wabana mine a profit of SI a ton,  and as contracts for the delivery of  500,000 tons have been signed for this  season it is very easy to see that there  is a handsome dividend in it for the  shrewd capitalists who control it."  general invitations were not issued.  The proceedings were entirely of a  routine character with the exception of  a neat little testimonial to the Government whip, Mr. Price Ellison, from the  members of the Cabinet. The souvenir  was a gentle reminder of his office, consisting of a beautiful driving whip  mounted with silver furrels and an  ivory butt. The whip was strapped to  Mr. Ellison's desk, and when the popular member for East Yale took his seat  there was applause from both sides of  the chamber.  The star feature of the final was the  passage of the Grand Forks and Kettle  river railway bill. A battle royal prolonged for over a fortnight, took place  ever this measure, the C. P. R. through  its executive agent, Mr. Brown, most  strenuously opposing it However the  pressure was so strong from the locality  interested that the measure successfully  ran the gauntlet of all its stages, and  finally became law amid the only  boisterous applause heard in the chamber this session. It was fought at every  stage by amendments, by points of  order, and by all the abominations  known to the log roller, but without  avail.    UP    XKAR   HJKAVJiX.

Speculator group some days ago, has |  taken a bond on another Ten Mile prop- j  erty, the two-thirds interest in the Ger-i  There is a little New Denver hopeful  who is an optimist of no mean calibre.  He should be utilized as a real estate  broker, as is evidenced bv the following  conversation which took place the other  day:  "Papa, is yo' goin' t' Sand'n t'day?"  "Yes, I'm going to-day."  "Papa, where's Sand'n?"  "Oh, way up in the mountains."  "I s'pose it's up by heaven, ain't it,  papa?"  Papa agreed that it was, and the boy  was contented.  This  or  the.'other  thing  cannot  be  done, not because  it  is  right,  or it  is,  wrong', not because it is  convenient  or  otherwise, but simply on account of the  tyranny.of gossip in small communities.  "People will talk" is a phrase frequently  heard in little villages or towns  where  everybody knows everybody  else.    Independence of this criticism  is  secured  in  great  cities,  where   neighborliness  hardly exists in the  sweet  rural   sense  and  sweet  old-fashioned   fact, and in1  lonesome   tracts   where   families    are  widely   separated.    The   fear that retrenchment if M-e are too expansive in  our living, hangs heavily upon many a  soul; not that hardship is dreaded, but  that comment is.    In some places a bar  is placed upon individual  freedom, because of what people might  say.    Mrs.  R., would like to add to  her  means by  taking   boarders,   but    hesitates    lest  somebody   talk.     Miss   M.   would   be  more comfortable should she work  for  wages in another person's  home than  she is in working for nothing under her  step-mother's  rule.   But she does not  wish   to  start  a' train  of talk  on the  family affairs, so she remains at homo  and frets  and grows   bitter  and  hard  daily.  We probably grossly exaggerate the  interest others have in us and our doings. This is a world of great personal  absorption. People are as a rule too  much engaged with their own occupations, perhaps too cumbered with the  thickly-crowded cares of their own  lives to be at liberty to discuss ours.  Most neighborly comment is kindly and  few censorious words are said unless  they are deserved. It is within our  power to avoid doing what is wrong or  foolish, not because we dread human  reproach, but on account of our self-  respect and our duty to God. These  being satisfied, we would go fearlessly  forward, thinking nothing at all of  what people may say.  SCHOOL    KEPORT.  CLARA   MATIIJUS    COJUIVG.

Shiploads of com and other provisions have, been sent to the famishing  millions, and hundreds ol thousands of  dollars has been sent in cash to help the  relief committees in-their work. When  the work was started Dr. Louis Klopsch.  proprietor of the Herald, visited India  to learn how best to conduct the work:  He personally visited the plague, dis-  . rrii'ts and secured valuable.! informal ion  rh.it has been of material advantage in  dealing' with the momentous under  taking:.

The height of a reservoir bank above  the highest water level is usually, four  feet for low and six feet for high reservoirs. When the depth of water at the  side of the embankment does not exceed  30 feet the top of the bank may generally be four feet above the top water  level. With a depth of from 30 to 50  feet the height should be five feet; and  when the depth is 6C feet or over the  height should he six feet. Trautwine  suggests that the top width be two feet  plus twice the square root of the height  in feet The inner slope should be 2A  base to 1 height, and the outer slope li  base to 1 height.  Concerning the "power" of a steam  boiler, the word in that connection is  not correctly applied, but is used, because of a custom.
