everything but a couple of old unoccupied buildings.
The avalanche came as they always
come, suddenly and without warning.
The six teams of fours which are used to
do the freighting on the Rambler road,
were all out with their'drivers!. Thirteen mules and three saddle horses,
just brought in the day before from
Washington to do the summer's packing stood in the stable. A string of
heavy ore wagons just received from
Brantford lay in the yard. Supplies
and provisions for a heavy season's
business tifled the store to the rafters
At the fatal moment when the slide
came Billy Douglas, the camp blacksmith, was busy shoeing a mule.
Sandy Macdonald, the corral bosB, was
busy about tlie stables, J W. Power,
who owned the outfit, had just got on
horseback to start up the hill when he
saw the slide coming and giving the
warning to his companions, rode like
mad for safety. His escape was providential, as the edge of the slide caught
him and stripped the leather leggin
from one of his feet, but left the'man
and horse uninjured. Sandy Macdonald reached the edge of the slide, but
was carried down a few feet before he
was thrown out of the track. Billy
Douglas, not as fast a runner, was
caught in the slide and smothered, but
his body lay where it fell. The camp,
with its live stock and equipment was
swept to destruction in a flash.   Search^
ers afterward found the safe within a
few hundred feet of McGuigan, and the
wreckage of the camp scattered along
the trail of the avalanche .for. three
miles.
The warning was quickly sent to the
Rambler mine, from which a relief expedition came aud recovered Douglas'
remains and bore them to Sandon.
Macdonald wus brought down the hill
but. was not seriously injured.
Tlie avalanche was sudden, swift and
terrible. Its work of dastruetion was
complete. Of the 815,000 invested in
the freighting outfit, nothing remains
but tlie teams that were on the road.

abode. She was acquitted by the
twelve good men and true (?) who
weighed the evidence against her because, like certain historic characters
in a similar case, they were not provided with a warrant for stone throwing, At least it is evident that was how
the judge regarded the mental attitude
by which the members of the jury were
enabled to render a verdict of "not
guilty."
But though there waB none to condemn, neither was there any to say
"go, and sin no more," to this fair
daughter of Humanity. Not a Christian woman's hand was outstretched in
sympathy or aid ; not a Christian home
opened its portals to receive her if,
perchance, she might have Jdesired to
"sin nomore."
And now the chief of police is up
against public opinion for having, in a
spasm of morality, allowed this farce to
be placed upon tne boards at the ox
pense of the community. By and bye
our vaunted civilization will discover
that the only sins over which man bas
jurisdiction are sins against society.
For sinning against nature the great
mother herself has ample punishment.

£§ Two Dollars Per Ton.
The low grade copper ores of the
Boundary district can be mined, smelted at a total charge of not more than
83.65 a ton, according to Dr. Ledoux,
the famous copper Bamplei of New
York. He declares that they are
profitable with copper at 12 cents
Copper is now 11>2 and lljj[ cents Dr.
Ledoux, who is at the head of Ledoux
& Co, ranking among the largest
samplers of copper in the United
States, made a visit to the Boundary
mines last summer to acquaint himself
with conditions there. He has an
article in the current number of the
Canadian Miniug Review, which will
be read with unusual interest by those
who are watching the development of
the Boundary mines.   He says in part :
"There have been numerous published guesses at the grade of these Boundary creek ores, and ofter all that is the
vital point on which all the others de-

CANADIAN 81'RUCK FOREST,
It has already heen made abundantly clear that Canada is destined to
be one of tho great pulp and paper
making country of the future. No
othoi countries in the world has the
same quantity or quality of spruce, and
no ono has equal water power facilities in close conjunction thereto. The
Canadian spruce belt extends the
whole distance from Belle Isle Straits
to the tnoutb of the Mackenzie River
and occupies 2,690,000 square miles. It
varies lu width from 850 miles to over
1,000; and a fair average, taken at ten
almost equal intervals in that huge extent, gives an average breadth of 700
miles. We have thus in sight the raw
material for 4,500,000,000 tons of wood

reduco the cost of mining by stripping

level of the railway track, and by the
introduction of the caving system for

"It has been said that the cost of
mining in the district, even with the
high wages to miners, is very low, the
conditions being most favorable. I
come now to tbe all important consideration of smelting costs.
"Tho Boundary ores being self fluxing, indeed being rather basic in
character, allow the admixture of a
certain quantity of silicious ores from
the Republic camp or other districts,
whose ores carry jfold and silver, and
the sulplmr being low permits of smelting without preliminary roasting.
With the advent of railways from the
south, the Boundry smeltera can procure more dry silicious ores at favorable rates. It may also be stated at
this point that the freedom ofthe ores
from bismuth, arsenic and antimony
renders it easy to obtain a ready
market (or the copper product

Copper, 4n per cent: gold, 12 cents per

exist today, the cost of smelting at tha

According to astronomers, the

CIk Cow Skull Gulch Ball
, A wild cry arose from the clump
/ of stunted willows that encircled
Cow Skull Spring. It reached the
ears of several miners who were
loitering about Latting's "joint,"
and their attention became riveted
upon the yellow masses of willows
in the near-by gully. In the space
of a moment. Rose Rattigan pushed
her way through the shrubs; she
waved her arms excitedly, aud
phouted in a lusty voice: "The
ould spring's dry! Divil a dhrop
uv water in sight) but dirty mud!"
This announcement caused a
flurry among the men; to have
been told the rich Cow Skull mines
had suddeuly pinched out would
scarce have been a more demoralizing bit of news. One incredulous
fellow called back: "You're giving
us a josh, Rosy, ain't you  now?"
"Come down wid your pwn eyes,
Bill Clarke, and you'll be. afther
wan tin' water now, when there's
narry a dhrop in camp! '
Clarke aud his companions filed
down the trail to Cow Skull Spring
and saw for themselves that the
contents thereof was naught but
^ thick, black mud. No one seemed
to appreciate this deplorable fact
save Latting, who immediately
foresaw an increased run of trade
on hi-3 "joint," where liquid refreshments were not dependent upon a refractory natural spring.
"Not enough water here for a
jack-rabbit," quoth Bill Clarke;
"it's bad, mighty bad, for Cow
Skull Camp."    -
"Bad? Sure, an' yez spake wid
wisdom, Bill. Here's the dirty
shirts of ye gallants"—Rose indicated with the tip of her shoe a big
basketful|of soiled garments sitti ng
by the spring—"here' the empty
spring, and there's the grand ball
to-night, an' me afther promisin'
clane shirts fer thot same ball.
Wisha, it do be bad!"

went dry same time last year, but
water showed up again in ten days.
Guess we can stick it out for that
stretch of time, hey?" So spoke
Phi Lattin, sole proprietor of the
"joint," who really failed to see
the disadvantage waterless Cow
Skull would suffer, since his bar
had just received a fresh stock of
liquors.
"Makes a fellow dry to look at
that thar mud hole," sighed big,
lank Peter prospector. At which
remark Bill Clark proclaimed that
the treat was on Peter, and the
men, nothing loath-—not even
Peter—tramped back to Phi's.
Rose, left alone, Bank upon the
full clothes-basket, and strove to
solve the dilemma of doing a big
wash with not a pint of water.
The rattle of wheels and a noisy
salutation of "Hi, Madame Rattigan, time to tune up your piano!"
aroused the washerwoman of Cow
Skull. She looked up the trail and
saw Ray Atlas, the water "boy,"
whose bulky white horse jogged
serenely over the rough ground,
pulling a heavy two-weeeled cart
upon which reposed a hotfshead-
the peregrinating reservoir that
supplied the cabins of th© camp
with water.
Rose smiled. Here was coin,
puny for her misory. "Faith, Ray,
an' it's a big jugful uv watheryo'll
not scoop out uv C6w 8kull Spring
this foine mornfn't"
Not so much sarcasm tinged
theee words an a tone of commiseration.
Atlas hailed his white equine,
and joined Mrs. Rattigan at tho
edge of the defunct spring. A
glimmer of Intelligence Ut up his
face.   He recalled tlie cessation of

"Rosy Rattigan, do you mean to
tell me you,-ain't got my Sunday
shirt washed for that ball?"
"It's that I do, Mister Atlas;
nor do they be wan clane shirt in
all Cow Skull Camp, Mister xltlas."
And Mrs. Rattigan jerked her head
in a series of nods.
"Why, I'm on the receivin'
committee, Rosy, and I'll have to
tog up handsome-like, out of respect to the camp what's givin' this
grand ball."
"Tut, Ray, lad, out uvrespictto
Pink Dewit, you're meanin' to say, |
now.    But see, thin—what's this?"
i ..
Rose fished out a soiled, though
marvelously gay, garment from the
conglomerate mass in her basket,
and flashed it before Ray's eyes.
, His Sunday shirt! Ray looked
dejected. This was a sorry predicament. Could he muster up
courage in such a grimy garment
to escort the lovely Pink Dewitt to
the first "grand ball" given by the
Miners' Union at Cow Skull diggings? Never! For, at this lowest
ebb of his hopes, an inspiration
suddenly dispelled his gloom, and
he divulged the scheme to Mrs.
Rittigan.
"Rosy, there's Galena Creek
running slathers of water, and just
live miles up the canyon. I've got
to make that trip, or Cow Skull's
name is gone to the dogs.''
"Faith, Mister Ray Atlas, an'
it'll be sorra the in in nit I'd have
fer to do the washin' wid you gone
all day to fetch the wather."
"But Rosy, girl, don't you see—
we'll h'ist you and your basket on
the cart, and you can scrub at the
creek, and have the clothes dryin'
all the way back."
Atlas grinned ecstatically at this
brilliant-spurt-of-forethought,—and
Rose eyed him with approyal.
"It's consaited Oi be fer the
loikes uv that wise noodle o' you,
Ray Atlas. Sure, an' it's off we'll
be sky tin' in wan second o' tim'e."
A few minutes later, "Roop" the
white horse, jogged industriously
up the road that divided Cow Skull
Camp into two irregular rows of
rough cabins and dingy tents. Ray
Atlas, comfortably braced against
the big water-barrel, handled the
ribbons; and Rose Rattigan, washerwoman, sat in state upon the
crushed and dirty contents of the
capacious clothes-basket.
Ray and Rose, and possibly
Roop, were the only characters in
all Cow Skull Camp that knew of
this urgent expedition to Galena
Creek. But Pink Dewit, premiere
waitress at Wishbone's Hotel, was
smitten with acute jealousy upon
beholding, from her vantage point
at the kitchen window of the tiny
hotel. Ray and Rose riding so
merrily up the canyon.
Pink (-snapped her small teeth
viciously, and thought mauy hateful things about Mrs. Rattigan, the
jolly, buxom widow, for whom
every man in Cow Skull had a
cheerful word. "The old piece of
Irish blarney 1" chattered Pink to
herself; and, then, with a toss of
her bead, she adopted a don't-care
manner, and tripped in to serve
breakfast to th© superintendent of
the Go Down mine.
An unusual stir permeated the
atmosphere at Cow Skull digging*
that day. The night-shift men
arofte after a ten-wink steep, and
rushed about in apparent oonfunion.
There waa to be a twenty-four hour
lay-off to celebrate the forming of
a branch Miner's Union at that
flush oaino.

been loaned for a temporary dance-
hall, and Peter Prospector, Bill
Clarke, and half a dozen other
miners were eagerly assisting the
superintendent's wife and waitresses to decorate the barren room.
The forenoon went spinning merrily by; at noon, the miners of the
day shift were knocked off duty,
and bevies of brawny men hummed
noisily betwixt Latting's "joint"
and Wish bone's Hotel. Gradually
the news of the drying up of Cow
Skull Spring circulated among the
miners, and a few sagacious individuals surreptitiously collected
every drop of water they could discover—not overlooking the sack-
wrapped demijohns of both shifts,
nor even their neighbors' water-
pails. But, with all their diligence
scarce a gallon of the precious fluid
could be cornered, and soon an
undercurrent of alarm dampened
(metaphorically) the gala spirits of
Cow Skull's populace.
When the three men, who had
provided themselves—more liberally than circumstances warranted
—with water, appeared at the hotel, freshly shaven, with clean
faces and plastered hair, the other
miners became imbued with a hankering to "spruce up," and began
to steal away toward their respective abodes.
Soon a; mighty shout thundered
down from a cabin perched on a
sage-brush knoll. "What scurvy
wood-rat swiped my pail of water?"
It was Peter Prospector, who accosted the camp at large, and he
looked decidedly ugly, and dry, too.
In answer to this query came a
deep chorus of awful threats,
countercharges and ^ewailings.
To add to the general discomfiture, one of the cleanly persons,
after banging and kicking upon
Rose Rattigan's door, dramatically
chanted forth the fact that Rose
had fled, and left him with never a
decent shirt to his name.
Peter Prospector was the proud
possessor of aa extra shirt,  and he
wrilingly^fferelllSn5arteFnFin^xT
change for a pint of water; and to
emphasize his earnestness, he flatly
refused a quart bottle of whiskey,
three flasks of brandy, and two
ounces of gold dust for this rare
article of apparel. No pint of
water was forthcoming—yet never
was a shirt so coveted as this one
of Peter.
"Where's that hulk of a Atlas?
Why ain't he here, with his water-
cart?" demanded Jerry Smith.
"Ho, Iio, I say! Where IS that
blamed cuss? Ain't any one seen
Ro<y Rattigan, nor Ray Atlas?
Where's Pink Dewitt, she ougliter
know?"
Pink, for obvious reasons, declared she didn't keep tug of Hay
Atlas, nor of any washerwoman
that over washed, and, as she was
the only one in all Cow Skull who
had witnessed the departure of
Ray with hte wnlen-art, and Hose,
with her I'lothes-hnsk-H. the mystery took on new proportions, ami
a panic scumcd inevitable,  while
the hour for the arrival of guests
and the beginning of festivities
swung on at an alarming pace.
Since Atlas had delivered no
water at Wishbone's Hotel that
morning, the cooks struck, for the
simple reason that no one could
expect supper to be prepared without a spoonful of water on the
premises. Even Phi Latting grew!
despondent. Having anticipated a j
run on his choice liquors, he accordingly got ready to meet it; but
now every miner in the camp experienced the pangs of thirst that
could be quenched by nothing but
water, and shunned the "joint" as
if fresh from the Keeley Cure Institute. Then the woeful drought
falling upon him at this untimely]
hour, drove the community frantic;
men who had been known to be
calm and collected at the bottom of
a shaft, with fuses spluttering a
half inch from giant-powder blasts,
and every avenue of escape shut off,
now went charging about like locoed broncos.
The omission of supper, that
would have given birth to a perfect
Hot on any other day, was a mere
bagatelle to the shirtless, waterless
Co,\v Skullites.
At a late moment, just as the
sun smiled a lurid farewell from
the crest of 'a purpling range of
hills, some one discovered that
whiskey straight could be utilized
as an ablutibnary liquid. Afterward, it was darkly hinted that
Latting himself originated this report. At any rate, the expected
run of custom at last came his way
and Latting forgot his prayer for a
shirt department and an arsenal
well, in handing over wholesale
quantities of his stock in trade.
Whiskey flowed much more freely
that water for a time, but the results vere far from satisfactory.
Bill Clarke, goaded to ugliness by
whiskey-drenched eyes, deliberately appropriated Peter's extra shirt.
A rough-and-tumble ensued. The
miners circled about the combat-

until Pink Dewit -shrilled out a
warning cry.
Thecrowd, that had been almost
precipitated into a free-for-all fight,
broke up like street gamins before
a police squad. The three individuals who were washed had no
shirts, and fled in dismay—Peter,
who owned the extra shirt, galloped
off to his cabin with the shredded
remains of that same garment; a
number of others, both grimy and
shirtless, disappeared like rats in a
woodpile. No amount of prodding
could induce the disreputable reception committee to perform its
rightful duties. There were ladies
in this advance equippage. and not
a mini in camp could muster up
courage, or dtopel his native bash-
fillness Mifliciently to put on a
brave front, and meet the Wudu-1
ville people. Soon a second wagon
toppi'd the brow of the hill—a
third, a fourth, and a lidli rapidly

When outfitting for camp always take
cntly, came bowling into Cow Skull j
Camp. *
The straggling cabins wore a
cheerless and deserted air. Not a
mau nor a woman came forth to
welcome the guests. It, was as if
the ya\vning mines had swallowed
up the entire population of the
camp. The visitors lowered tlieir
voices, and broached various surmises of heart-rending catastrophes
they had read about. Perhaps a
Tonopah plague had devastated!
Cow Skull. A hundred different]
solutions to the mystery were
listened to, and the mystery only
deepened and darkened with the
falling shadows of night. In ap
compact group, the Wadsville people moved toward Wishbone's
Hotel—.still whispering, still surmising.
■ A hollow rumbling of wheels, a
brisk shout of ;'Git along, old
Roop!'' and a genuine Irish soprano voice singing:
"Oh, Paddy, dear, and did ye hear...
Tlio new* that's goin'round?"
brought the whole   company to   a
standstill.
"What is it?" screamed a hysterical lady.
"Look! look!" hissed a tra-gie but
timid youth.
——A~swaying-jolting'~blbt"Or"some*r
thing indistinctly seen through the
semi-darkness fluttered down the
gulch, in the opposite direction
from which the Wadsville party
came. Toward them it swung a
phantom white elephant; dragging
a billowy, tremulous shadow-
froin which emanated the sweet
and thrilling words of "The wearing of the green," sung in a mellow brogue.
Of a sudden, the monstrous elephant took on the size and shape
of a white horse; the billowy shadow, the outlines of a big two-
wheeled cart, on which were a
water barrel; a man, a woman,
and improvised lines crowded with
drying clothes, stretched from upright Htiek.s. It was Hoop and
Ray, and Hone, entering Cow Skull
in triumphant spirits.
"Bowl o* me body!   Behold the
foine people!   Ah, welcome it is to
Cow Skull, ladies and   gentlemen!
Kaith, now, an' where's the boys?"
Ilo*e Itattigan   beamed a  cordial
welcome to thu astonished  Wadsville citi/eiiH, and looked puzzled
' as she attempted to diacovcr a sight
ior sign of her own towiiHinen.
I    "Why, madam," said a voice in
thecrowd, "wt-  found a  deserted
camp.   Not a soul  eame out  to
meet uh wlmt doe* it mean?"
"A'H-a-h! nhrieked Mr*. Hatti-

gintleman, to appear in respectable
company." Whereupon Rose began to laugh until the tears glistened upon her ruddy cheeks, and
her buxom bosom heaved with"
merriment. Then she shouted iu
carrying tones: Bill Clarke! Peter
Prospector! Sulphur Joe! Come out
all ye'distressed darlint", and git
the clane shirts; and a pan o'
wather!
Cow Skull Camp aw&ke as if
touched by a magic wand. Miners
streamed from every cabin, and iu
their rush to the water-cart, almost stampeded steady old Roop.
Rose and Ray plied a rival trade
for a spell; she dealing out the dry
shirts, he measuring out water to
the clamoring men. The whole
performance took on a wildly
picturesque, coloring. Since the
miners experienced a joyful relaxation at the happy turn affairs had
taken, good feeling and hospitality
ran at high-tide.
Pink Dewit forgave Ray Atlas
his neglect of her when matters,
were fully explained; but her nose-
was visibly put out of joint at the
gay and glorious dance in Whish-
bone's dining-room that eventful
night, because Rose Rattigan
reigned in undisputed sway as not
only the petted   heroine  of  Cow
Skull Camp, but the acknowledged
belle of the Miners' Union Ball. —■

"What'a coarse lot of grafters the
the legislators of B. C. ave.
And what a succulent lot of fish
the voters of B. C. are.
At election time the smiling candidates come around and with the
glad hand and promisory verbal
notes;
Plaster up the back all past diff-
ences with party weaklings.
Promises come easy;
So do cigars and booze;
Aud votes.
Laboring men are led to believe
there are too many professional
men in parliament, and that they
should elect a laboring man to look
after their interests.
They plunk thair votes to the
man who spouts the loudest about
the "oppressed masses," and can
articulate "damn-it" with the ease
of a street gamin.
The business men and mining
men are given another steer.
It is a matter of dollars and cents
with them.
They have to be handled differently, but are worked quite as
easily.
The successful candidate gets in.
His friends crowd about like
coyotes around a carcase in the
woods.
They are chokeful of congratulatory expressions.
Incidentally they remind him of
the promises he has made.
He is most happy to be reminded.
Yes, it will be attended to at
once.
The legislature meets.
His friends go home and wait.
They believe they have acted
honorably by. him and expect him
to be honorable with them.
In reality they sold their vote to
him;
They have been grafters.
In the legislature he sells his
vote to the bosses.
It is barter from start to finish.
He thinks he is honorable;
the smouldering* mass  has a genuine
crater.
Emperor William is showing- extraordinary interest in motors in which
potato alcohol is used as fuel. He has
secured pledges from the North German Lloyd and the Hamburg-American
companies that they will equip their
harbor boats with alcohol motors, aud
Krupp has promised to use "them for
some of his machinery Orders have
already been given for experimental
tests in the navy, and the war department is advertising for automobiles
using alcohol fuel.

But he's a grafter.
If the government is weak he
flirts with the opposition.
If it is strong he hangs in with
the lobby.
His mit is big.
His friends glory in his graft.
But finally there comes a time
when business must be done.
The bosses begin to whip into
line.
In the line-up he finds himself
powerless to accomplish auything.
He has been a grafter, but he
finds that others have been grafters,
too;
And that before he can work his
grafts he rauft help the big fish
work their's.
When the big fish have done
with him the time limit has about
expired and the legislature is about
to adjourn;
Or the government has been defeated, and dissolution ensues.
Then a roar goes up from his
constituency.
He comes back and tells them
how the opposition blocked business—
If he was on the government
Hide.
And if he stood in with the opposition, how the government refused to pass any legislation proposed by thc opposition.
And the little fish take the bait.
Tho trouble is that all people are
grafters.
Tho legislature* is only the medium through  which  they work—
Or try to work—
