hundreds of people from Nakusp, Three

passed awa\' in one long sip of pleasure for the
W jolly'crowd that surged through our beautiful

a tremendous boom and a "stranger in- the city for

A lady tourist from California
said to us last week that it would
he a pity to spoil the Lucerne by
having large numbers of rude tourists gaze at its beauty. She thought
tha grandeur of the scenery should
not he profaned by the rush of too
many strange feet. Wo regretted
to inform the lady that through
reading this journal tne world was
being attracted to this spot, and
unless we shut down the paper
there was no hope of keeping the
crowd away much longer.
It is reported by several mining
men owning properties in the Poplar camp that the soft schist carries
values in free gold running from $5
to $18 a ton. If a mill test proves
this to be the. fact Poplar creek will
cast every mining camp- on this
continent into the shade. There
are mountains of this schist around
Poplar and it can be mined and
milled at a profit even if it does not
run over $1.4.0 in gold to the ton.
It is in order for a mill test to be
made a's soon as possible in order
to blow away the fog that pessimists push over every virgin mining camp.

Daniel J. Sully on the day of his
admission to the Chicago Board of
Trade lunched'at the Chicago club.
During the luncheon he illustrated
aptly the value of the counter charge
in argument.
"There was a man," he said,
"who should have been home one
night for dinner, but he did not arrive till 3 o'clock in the morning.
"He entered the house quietly,
and aWended the stairs on tiptoe.
His watchful wife, however, heard
him, aud in a severe tone she called:
" 'Henry, is that you?'
"lie replied, with a note of surprise and reproach in his voice:

f ORD DUND0NALD, who is the
[ Cy military commander of Canada's
soldiery, stated in a speech tne
other day, " the United States gives its
regular army 500 rounds of ammunition
The permanent corps in Canada is al-.
lowed 200, and the militia 40 rounds. It
is impossible for me, as general officer
"commanding, to say that I am satisfied."
There is not the slightest occasion for
the dear boy to get uneasy. His satisfaction is not the point to be considered
for an instant It is the taxpayers, tlie
people of this country, that have to be
satisfied,and the masses are perfectly satisfied that even 40 rounds are lO-rounds
too much. The whole military outfit
of Canada is a monstrous piece of torn
foolery. Indeed, if it were only that,,it
would not be so bad It is worse, for it
is the thin end of the wedge that is
being artfully, skilfully and most persistently driven home, by Downing
street influence for the bitter and grievous burden of the citizens' of this country. Canada has no more use for militarism, than a log cabin has for a brass
knocker,   It can only lead to trouble, .country will be saf-e.TfTid peaceful
financial burdens and  death.   It can   ,l    iU- "   ' '"r"-   	
breed nothing but love of poppy cock
display, pride,and a caddis li apeing ol
class distinction, If Canada has no
army it will never need qne.^The
moment it has even thp pretense of one
it will be dragged into trouble.   The
man who parades around with a revolver in his pocket has ever the shadow
of the hangman's uoose ai-out his neck
He is,certain to assume a swagger and
arbitrary bluster in his conduct that will
provoke resentment. Then the gun
consummates the damnable work it has
wrought in the man with such stealth
and crkft So perfectly well known is
this fact, that the carrying ot firearms is
prohibited What applies to the individual, applies with equal force to the
nation The moment a nation swajigers
and blusteis around with a revolver in
its hip pocki'-t, that moment the earth
begins to open for the reception of the
murderous bodies. "Iu time of peace,
prepare for war" is the devil's most
prominent motto in hell It was his
best and most productive invention. He
chuckles whenever ha looks at it, for he
knows that, though the command to"
Love one another were trumpeted from
every hill in Christendom he has only
to whisper u In time of ^eace, prepare
for war," and the game is his Canada
needs no militarise.   Without it, ihe
With
it, there is an eiid to peace The
smouldering uttflvrs, of'"militarism that
are being so persistently fanned by
Downing street emissaries, should be
stamped out, stamped into harmless
dust before it is too late —Bobcaygen

Thryouns ww$ Wesson
ONCE upon a time there was an
Earnest Young^Woman who fell
in love with a Worthy Youth, and
married him. Now this noble Creature
had the loftiest Ideals of a Wife's Duty,
ahd had doped out a system whereby
she meant to make Matrimony a £lad,
sweet song.
In her dreams she had a picture of
herself doin^ the Domestic Art, >yhile
her Husband hurled bouquets at her
and wondered how he kept out of the
Pooi house before he had such an Industrious and Economical Little Wife to
help him along. So no sooner had she
gotten home from her Bridal Trip than
she got busy darning his socks and
patching his trousers.
'While she was engaged in this occupation, the was .visited' by her Mother,
- mrao u \* w~ s^r i v*-
_T^Q avusa ttrVlf	
wisdom teeth so long ago that she had
her Second Set, and who ho sooner per
ceived what her Daughter was doing
than''she burst into tears,
"Why this waste of Brine?" inquired
the Daughter with great solicitude as
she observed her Mother's G rief.
"Alas," replied the Mother with
e. notion, "I weep at the piteous spectacle andthatstho answer,"
"What 'tis?" inquired the Daughter,
"for your meaning gets past tne "
" I refer," answered the Mother, " to
the way in which you are half soloing
those I ftntH **     ■  ■
"Havo i"not done It Beautifully?"
replied the Daughter. " You would
think that a tailor had turned out the
Job,"
" That," replied tho Mother weening
afresh," is where you cinch your hoodoo."
" How So ? " inquired the Daughter
"Because,"   returned   the   Mother:
"you. do It so woll you will always havo
it to do, and It will always bo tho mond
lug for yours "
"But," asked the Daughter, "will not
mv Husband give ine tho glad hand
when ho «cos how nicely 1 have patched
his trousers, and how much Money I
havo saved him?"
"He will jolly you the First Time you
do it," replied" the mother with great
sagacity"and after that he will never
Open his head on the subject except to
Knock you when, you. Don't do it
Without doubt it will be gratifying to
your Vanity to Show Off to "your Husband how industrious, Economical and
Skillful you are, but remember that as
long as you live you will always ha-ye
to make Good on your Boast that you
can Patch like a Tailor, and m^ke One
Dollar do the work of Three. Nor, will
there be any opening for you in the way
of Praise, for he will cousider£that you'
have Merely done your Duty.
"If you will observe closely you will
see that it is thu*u Wives who do not
know How to Cook whoso Husbands
blow them into little Dinners at Sherry's
when the Cook  leaves, and that, the
and temples are the perennial wonder
of the world!
Look t»t Egypt, once the greatest
nation of the world, whose pyramids are
still an architectural asionishment, and
which was made great by the immense
stores-of gold drawn from the Nubian
and Red Sea mines !
Look at Greece, in her days of eloquence and '.riumi-h! Those were the
riavs when Athens wa* enriched by tiie
silyer and lead of Lauriuia, oue of the
richest mines the world has known
Look at Rome, which laid the foundation for the laws and civilization of
modern days, and gained world-wide
dominion by drawing upon the hoaids
of precious metal in the subject nations,
aud the tremendous returns from the
gold mines ot Spain and Gaul!
Look at Eiijjlau-4, made, wealthy by
the gold she gains from other nations in
trade, and by the enormous investment.0
of her rich men in the mines of other
countries.
Look at America, the richest nation
that has ever been known, and made so
entirely b\ the energy and .enterprise of
her men iii developing her vast mineral
wealth I Do you doubt it? Then know
that the gold of California made the
United States a nation, for hut tor the
tremendous outpour of the Califomian
mines and its influence upon the times,
the great "civil struggle would have
ended differently and the wheels of
civilization been put back for centuries.
It was that, likewise, which stimulated
the niiniug activity which we see increasing to this day, atfd just in piropor
tion as the products of our mines come
forth to bless the world, so rises the tide
of prosperity and .pours forth the river
of happiness! Nay, more, upon these,
things rests the advance of intellectual
ity and influences.
Does anyone imagine that the $5,000,-
000,000, odd, in gold that is known to be
in existence in the world, has cost
85,000,000,000 to produce? If so, where
did that enormous sum of money come
from?
Tell us no more that the dollar of the
miner costs adollar to produce! Without his dollar there would not be that
other dollar, and stagnation; misery,
despair and desolation would be the
fate of all!—'Frisco Mining Review.

With these words the mother returned home, and being a Wise Female, the
Daughter sat down and carefully picked
out the Neat Stitches she had put in her
Husband's Trousers and gathered in
the Patch until it looked like a Puff on
a Crazy Quilt Sofa Cushion, and when
her Lord and Master returned sho
approached him and thus addressed
him:   v

Ducky Daddle of a Wife you have, and
■ how Beautifully sho has Mended your
Trousers so that you would not have to
Waste your Money .sending them to a
Horrid Tailor.''
*• You are indeed a Peacherino," replied the Husband, "and 1 am a Lucky
Dog to get such an Economical little
Wife, but I fear the work was Too Hard
for yuur little White Hajids so you must
not Think of Mending any more."
And thereafter thu Wife sent out all

greatly admired her because she was

They will start worl; on the claim tomorrow.
A good strike has heen made on the

Tamar, a large body of mineralized rock
having been exposed by the washing
away of the surface soil by the melting
snows
Several mining experts are expected
in the cftmp shortly. One is ;coming
specially to look at* the Wheal Tamar
and Monte Carlo, and another will examine the Evening' Star, besides, making a general survey of tiie camp.
Work is steadily progressing- at the
Iron Mask. The concentrator building
will be roofed in this week
On the Coal Hill coal proposition the
shaft has been sunk to a depth of 70
feet, with encouraging results.
Arrangements are being made for tlu

Reports from Cripple Creek are to the
effect that shipments of ore from the
camp this year average about $40 n ton,
Whereas the shipments for last year
were not to exceed $38. The increase
in value of ore is something of a surprise, owing to the fact that the new
schedule of the milling- companies will
permit of the handling of a lower gracie
of ore. It is explained, however, that
this schedule has barely beeu felt yet
MAX   HELP   SILVER.
New York.—London reports that,a
large part of the proceeds of the Japan-,
ese loan is to be used to purchase silver
are received with' great satisfaction by
silver interests here. Japan recently
bought two millions of Mexican silver
dollars, and it. has been expected for
some time she would largely increase
her silver coinage. While Japan is on
a'gold basis, she has "long been considering enlarging her silver circulation. If
Japan comes in the market for a large
amount of silver, it would strongly lead
to au advance in price, considering- the
large demand also from India and China.
Silver producers here sav that not over
4,000,000 or 5,000,000 ounces per month
could be secured now, as practically no
stock is on hand here or in England, nor
could much be obtained from Mexico
In buying Mexican dollars the Japanese government is reported paying 8 to
5 per cent premium ovei silver bars,
hence it is likely Japan would prefer
bars for coinage if needing a
amount.
