Five tons of ore from the Sapphire
mine, on Twelve Mile, were received at
the Hall Mines smelter last week W.
A. Harvey, lessee of the mine was in
charge of the shipment.
Under the management of the lessees,
the Enterprise mine is producing more

A small force of men with six months'
provisonsleft Nelson last week to reopen
fhe Bayonne mine, south of Kootenay
landing Eight head of hordes were
taken along to pack the supplies to the
mine* Owing to the difficulties of transportation, all tho winter and spring
supplies are being taken in now, before
the snow gets very deep. There wero
over two tons of dynamite in tho outfit,
besides large quantities of hardware.
Last week tho C. P. R. monthly pay
checks arrived in Nelson and were dis-
tributed to the army of employes. The
payroll on tho Nelson division is
now nearly $70,000 per month, and is
steadily rising While a portion of this
amount is paid out to the crews on the
branches running to Roasland and
Pluenix, the larger part of it goes to
those who make their homes in NeUon
The News says that Ave years ago the
pavroll on this division was not a tenth
of what it Is now.
Freight shipments to tho Lardeau
country still keep up to the standard of
a month ago. The sleighing on most
of the mine roads Is now good, and thn
good hauling is coming in verv convenient at this time when the winter's supplies are being put In. During tho past
few weeks tho water in the lakes ana
streams lias boon falling very rapldlv,
tho decrease being caused by tho cold
weather. This low water is giving an
impetus to placer mining on many of the
smaller streams in ths Lardeau and
Salmon river districts.
The local Knights are priding themselves on having secured for New Denver the famous Schubert Symphony

Some people are slow to take a hint;
others can only grasp it after the "brick
house" has fallen on them; but most
any person with a little bit of hard sense
knows, that a lodge will only praise
what deserves it. They would hot give
their brother lodgemen the wrong tip
for all the concert companies in Christendom.       _
Kaslo will likely get a smelter in its
stocking at Christmas.

An organization was partially perfected last week of the Poplar Trades
committee. It came ns the outgrowth
of a thoroughly representative meeting
of business men, mine owners and prospectors, called to pass resolutions me-
morializinit the Canadian Pacific railway to maintain open communication
on the Lardo Gerard branch during the
The meeting was held at the Grand
hotel with Frank Holden in the chair. A
special committee was formed to draft
resolutions to the railway company.
The memorial will also be sent to the
Associated boards of trade, the railwav
committee at Ottawa and to the local
representatives in both the provincial
tnd dominion houses. Briefly it sets
forth the fact that the mining companies, and several claim owners purpose doing development work during
the winter season, provided the railway
service is maintained and that the uncertainty of the company's action, as
expressed in the press by its provincial
representative is working irretrievable
injury to the camp. With open communication employment will be given
directly and indirectly to several hundred people, and at least two mines will
be on the shipping list, and the permanency of the camp placed on a. sound
footing before spring. To close Poplar
means a set back that would be hard to
recover from It means a possible pye-
ical and financial injury to those who
through force of circumstances may be
coinpelled to winter there—isolated from
the world—if the railway declines to
maintain a service.

Attempt to obtain possession of what
lioes not belong to thern. Tho coldblooded jumper is a leech, generally no
more honorable than a horse thief, and
should be pumped full of liquid air before his piratical efforts damn tho efforts

dead had gold in their teeth.
A preacher came at a newspaper man
in this way: "You editors do not tell
the truth If you did you could not
live; your newspaper would be a fail-
*ire.1 Thft.editOE_ replied:—JlYoU-arft
risrht, and the ministe'r who at all times
tells the whole truth about his members,
alive or dead, will not occupy his pulpit
more than one Sunday, and then he will
find it necessary to leave town in a
hurry. The pi-ess and the pulpit go
hand in hand, with whitewash hrushes
and plersant words magifying littie virtues into big ones. The pulpit, the pen
nnd the gravestones are the great saint-
making triumvirate." And the great
minister went away looking very
thoughtful, while the editor turned to
his work and told of the surpassing
beauty of tho bride, while, in fact she
was homely as a mud fence.
"Out of 30 minini! propertiescarefnlly
selected-by salaried experts, 18 properties (60 per cent) were profitable and
12 properties (40 per cent) were losing
propositions. Of the 18 paying properties, one croup of three became worth
more than the initial cost of the whole
80 properties originally selected for development."
From the foregoing it Is evident that
mining business can be made as safe,
or safer, than the majority of manufacturing concerns or ordinary business
ventures: provided a number of properties are selected by honest, competent
mining' men, the properties purchased
or bonded at reasonable prices and afterwards handled in a business like
Dishonest company promoters, bogus
mining experts, and" mining engineers
without integrity are some of the factors ever retarding the progress of the
noble industry of mining. Every true,
miner and all editors of real mining
papers ought to use their means and
abilities freely to rid the industry of
these masked enemies to real progress
and prosperity.
Thirty-two to one, or a little less than
64 cents* per ounce is the ratio on which
the Phillipine new system of coinage is
based. When the United States government began to buy for use in the
Phillipines, silver was selling at 48J
cents per ounce, but since that has gone
to 62 cents, or within less than two oents
of the bullion value of the Phillipine
peso. If the price of silver goes over
64 cents per ounce, the Phillipine
money will be retired by bullion
Tin has been discovered in the Trans

I in fact,   hundreds  are   making a
j good living off ten acres.    Ten dollars per acre is usual yearly iviit&l,
and in some eases $15.
'•Vancouver Island contains
many beautiful farms in* the vicinity of Victoria,"' says Mr. Lindsay, "the climate being similar to
that of England. All vegetation
produced there goes exceedingly
"Kamloops, which is in the dry
belt, will have thousands of acres
opened up in the spring, through a
very extensive plan of irrigation
now nearing completion. The land
will grow anything from a peach to
a watermelon. Iu the Kootenays
are thousands of acres owned by
the Canadian Pacific railway
company. These     lands    are
situated on the Kootenay lakes,
north and east from Nelson and in
the Cranbrook district. These
lands can be bought from SI to S5
per acre, and contain many valuable minerals. The bottom lands
are taken up, and many thousands
of acres can be used for grazing
lands.   The rolling and sheltered

Never call on the conductor to

one to call on one's inferiors.
A number of congenial people
who are held down by the wreckage
may, provided they are in the same
set, while away the time pleasantly
at bridge, dominoes or spin-the-
plato. Pretty favors, consisting of
court plaster, bandages, ointment
and arnica have been given at these
little impromptu affairs which are
often enjoyable.

"The Universe is growing better.
Heaven and Hell are Conditions."
Then why not you who live in Hell

prejudice, fear, concentrating your
thoughts upon "love truth and

"It." "Knowledge is good, good

Many people are of the opinion
that we raise nothing in B. C. but
(ish, minerals and pin-headed politicians, but such is not the case,
judging from what J. K. Lindsay
rtaid in Winnipeg the other day.
He says: „
Columbia would be a big surprise
to the average person, who is under
the impression that the province is
oraetically a sea of mountains,"
says Mr. Lindsay. "Whilepart of
this is timbered, yet when it is
cleared, wliich can be done at a
very moderate cost, its productiveness is unequaled iu Canada.
Speaking of the lower Fraser
valley Mr. Lindsay says it is probably the garden of the province.
A tour through this immense district would be a revelation to one
unacquainted with the possibilities
of the wonderful climate enjoyed
by that district., Says he: "the
warm days and cool nights produce
luxuriant yet hardy vegetation.
"Mixed farming is the usual
occupation, stock raising and
dairying being the most profitable.
On account of the wonderful pasturage an acre will pasture one
animal per year. I saw one farm
uf fifty acres on which a dairy herd
■f forty netted the owner over

ilie i-ivauicry statistics, cattle, practically spf.iUing, are out the year
round. Pork is another remunerative product, the comparison of
prtiduction between here and there
will demonstrate this—the one
feeding skim milk and clover and
tite other grain.

Train wrecks are becoming such
commonplace occurrences to the
California fdlk who travel that conventional people are asking one
another what is proper to be done
in tnis or that emergency wliich is
apt to arise in even the most trivial
and harmless train wreck. Custom
has given us a code of etiquette for
the ballroom, the golf course, the
horse show, but, unfortunately,
until recently there has been no
call for rules governing gentlemanly behavior iu train wrecks.
Nevertheless, Town Talk lias supplied this deficiency and prepared
a book of rules which will enable
the reader to slide down an embankment at Santa Barbara or to
mingle with a head-on collission at
San Mateo and yet comport himself with all the grace and dignity
thut would be his at a fashionable
fete eliampetre, a reception or a
cotillion. Following nre a few
sample extracts which will plainly
show how valuable Town Talk's
Book of Train F.tiqiiette will be to
the polite traveler of the future:

Send out bad thoughts and the same
mountain lion, and Prendergast
said it was an easy thing.
A little party of half a dozen
pitched their tent one night on the
brow of a mountain and talked
mountain lions and bears until
Preston was in for starting off in
the darkness for a single-handed
"rassle" with a cougar or something.
Finally the party retired, and
Preston had just dozed off when
the rapid firing of a rifle awoke
everybody, aud the expert guide
came rushing into camp, saying
that a panther was making all
kinds of trouble for the dogs, and
immediate assistance was needed.
Preston jumped up, grabbed a
gun and rushed off into the darkness in his night clothes and stocking fejt.
He had gone but a few feet when,
sure enough, he saw tho panther.
In the darkness ahead of him two
awful eyes glared at him. Lifting
his gun, Preston fired a charge at
the fiery eyes, and the eyes disappeared. For some time the party
wandered about the mountain trying to find the carcass of tho panther. Every now and then they
came upon a trail of blood, but no
panther could they find.
At daybreak they tackled the
thing again, but without result.
But Preston began to tell how he
shot the panther, aud, as he told it,
he enlarged until it was exceedingly vivid.
Finally Preston was hauled into
an Elks' meeting at .Roeeburg, and
there he told his story with all possible embellishment. When Preston got through, telling about the
panther, some one flipped the electric lights out and yelled, "Does
that look like your panther, Lou?"
A   ROAST   FOR   THE   "400.••
Bronson Howard, the New York
dramatist, holds thc women of New
York's *400" in bitter contempt.
He believes their escapades are responsible for the bad name the
women of New York are receiving
all over the world. Mr. Howard
was asked if it were true that the
drink habit is making slaves of
New York women.    He replied:
"The social set of New York,
known over the world as the '400.'
is an extremely fast set. The
members of it drink much wine,
Aiid_dail v_w.e_hea-r stories iu New
said that the drink  habit   is   increasing.
"The '400' does not, however,
influence the manners or customs
of society in any part of the country
to the least degree. It is looked
upon more as a curiosity than a
body of people whose 'antics' or
manner of living should be imitated. By their fast living the
members of the '400,' and particularly women members, have divorced themselves from New York
society, and have been ignored by
the more refined, genteel and temperate element.
"What is the secret of success?"
asked the sphinx.
"Push," said the Button.
"Take panes," said the Window.
"Never be led," said the Pencil.
"Be up to date," said the Calendar.
"Always keep cool," said the
•'Make light of everything," said
the fire.  	
A blustering, self importaht
gentleman walked into a barber
shop at Peck and wanted his hair
cut, says a Kentucky exchange.
He didn't want any talk—just a
hair cut, and he wanted it right
away. Thc modest and unpretentious old gentleman in the shop attempted to explain, but was rougl-
ly told to go ahead without a word.
After the job was finished the man
who knew everything looked in thc
glass and was horrified at his appearance. He fairly stormed, and
indignantly asked the old gentleman if he called that a  hair   cut.
The mild old gentleman meekly
replied: . "I don't know. Yon
must ask"the barber. He'll be in
presently. I'm the editor of the
village paper and was waiting for
a hair cut myself, but you wouldn't
give me a chance to explain."

THE LEDGE Eleventh Year
His Last
Theodore Jones, cashier of the
Second ..National bank in a. small
city not a thousand miles from
Chicago, was in serious trouble.
He had made a mistake that day
which he was not able to rectify.
It was Saturday aft rnoo i, and
he had discovered the mistake when
working over the books, after hours.
More than that he knew just  how;
the mistake had occured.
Putting on his hat-he walked a
few blocks up the street io the oilice
of David Grey, a prosperous niu.uu-
f it'turei'jWho was one of the depositors in the Second National bank.
MV. Gray was an austere man, who
was noted in the town for his closeness in money matters. When the
bank cashier entered the niaiuil'ac-
t r v s ofli e he .i-k d for a private
interview, ami the two were presently seal el iu an inner room.
' You came to the bank this afternoon," said Mr. Join's,* "with a
check for 81.R18 4.1, for which you
wanted the cash."
4 I did,"/aid Mr. Gary.
'In giving you the money I made
a mistake of 8900, and gave you
82, 1)38.45. You found it out afterward didn't you?"
44No," said the manufacturer as
cooly and steadily as before. 4'I
did not get any such money from
44But you did," insisted the
I4I gave you two packages of 810
bills instead of one package of tens
and oue package of ones. I remember it distinctly now."
44If you had done so," said MV.
Gray, steadily, '4I would have certainly discovered it when I used
the money to pay off my hands, but
, I did not discover anything of the
kind. There was exactly enough
in my pay roll."
The cashier staggered. Then,
seeing that Mr. Gray was determined to keep the money, he felt that
further pleadings would be useless,
and, leaving the room, he walked
back to the bank.
Going to the bookkeeper's   desk
he opened the big ledger and  appeared to be working over it.     In
reality he was stndyiug his predic-
_ ai n eu t«- ——- —•,
It was clear that he was unable
to make up the loss. His invalid
wife, whom he loved so devotedly, was a great tax on his income,
and it had been only by means of
the strictest self-denial that he had
kept out of debt. For her sake he
had broken away from his past life
in Chicago and had settled down to
business drudgery.
44Now, what does it all amount
to?" he asked himself, bitterly. *4I
would not bo any worse off ii* I had
stayed with the old crowd. Why,
I could win or lose a thousand in a
night when I was	
And then he stopped almost
stunned by the thought that came
to him. Then he looked around,
almost as if he had a guilty fear of
being seen, but there was no one
Then he thought over a plan
which had come to him like a direct inspiration of satan. In lvvlf
an hour a train would pass through I
the city which would bring him to
Chicago at 9 o'clock. A half loir'
til tiie barber's and an hour for dinner would leave him time to reach
fie old club rooms by the time the
invariable Saturday night poker
game   would he fairly under way;
and then	
But there were other things to
e insider. Yes. ho would get a
freight train back Sunday, night,
and no one need know he had been
away. But tho money. Ho had
forty or iifty dollars in his pocket
and no more of his own that he
could lay hands on at the moment.
And this was no capital for the
game he had in mind to play.
There was money—great quantities of money—almost under his elbow. The mere thought sent a
shiver through his whole frame,
and his heart seemed to cease beating. He had never stolen a cent in
his life. Then he laughed aloud
and muttered:
"It's the old game, double or
quits. I'll have the name of stealing 900 or, so I'll make it eighteen
or nothing."
He had at least one good quality
belonging to a good poker player.
There was no hesitation atter he
had decided. Counting out exactly 8900 of the bank's money he put
it in his pocket, and after locking
everything up securely, as was his
habit, he walked to the railway station.
When he entered the old. familiar card room, he looked with
some anxiety to see if his former inti mates were in the game, but in the
six who were playing at his favorite table there were only two
whom ho knew—George Parker
and Ben) Davis. They were both
hearty in their greetings.
"Sit right down," said Parker.
ris, Mr. Davenport, and Mr.
Jones bought 8100 worth of chips.
It was table stakes, and the ante
was SI, calling 82.
Not for three long years had he
had a poker chip in his hand, and
the familiar touch of tho smooth
disks made his fingers tinglo as a
glass of whisky tingles on the palate of a man who has sworn off for
a long time. As he shuttled the
cards the old fever came back to
At tho start he had some   little
I luck.    Without any notable strug
gle and with no considerable hands!
against him he, pulled in three or
four small pots, aggregating some
830 or ?40, when there came a jackpot that had been sweetened up to
835. The original pot was 814,
and there had been three sweetenings.
Looking at his hand he found a
straight, ace high; and as he sit at
the dealer's left, lie opened for the
amount of the pot. All the others
dropped but Benton, who had been
J the largest winner up on that time;
snd Benton raised him 835.
Jones' first impulse was to raise
back, but something in Benton's
manner gave him the impression
that a straight was a doubtful proposition, so he merely made good.
On the draw he stood pat, of
course, ami \yas a little surprised to
see Benton take one card. Reviling himself then for not having
raised before the draw, he threw in
a white chip.
"I tap you," said Benton, and
Jones counted his chips.
He had a trifle over 800 in front
of him, and he pondered awhile.
If Benton had made a flush or a
full, of course he would win, and
it did not seem likely that he would
have raised on anything less than
two pairs, but, on the other hand,
he might be bluffing on the chance
that Jones had stood pat on a weak
"Anyhow, there was 8235 in the
pot, and an ace high strait seemed
worth a 840 call.    So he called.
4'I played for a strait flush,"
said Benton, showing down, "and I
made a king high flush."
From that time ou Joues did not
take a   single   pot   until   he   had
bought his sixth   hundred dollars'
worth of chips,
- As he came to his last blue  chip
It was a raise of 8120, and Harris
was the only one to see it. On the
show down he displayed a queen
full, so the four nines pulled Jones
up to 896G, giving him a winning
on the evening of 866.
This, however was not the end.
There had been more chips bought
by the others, so that there was
over 83,000 on the table by this
time, but Davis was the only player
whose pile approximated Jones'.
The others had considerably less.
And on the next deal Davis opened the pot. The others dropped,
and Jones, finding three of his
nines again in his hand, raised.
Davis came back at him, and Jones
stayed. On the draw each took
two cards, and each made a full,
but Jones' was the higher.
Davis bet 8100 and Jones raised
it 8100, whereupon Davis pushed
his pile forward, and Jones called
That gave him 81,80S, and he
promptly cashed in.

Henry Stege, Proprietor
His little Hurry of luck was over,
and his seventh and eigth hundred
went as the others had, on a dreary
succession of fairly good hands
beaten and a tiresome chipping of
antes with no hands coming.
As he bought his last hundred he
felt the sickening despondency
that comes to any poker player who
makes a long light against luck.
And even more of the ordinary
woe of the poker player was his
when he remembered what it would
mean to him if he should lose all.
Being a seasoned player he held
his feelings in check, and handed
over his last hundred dollars to the
banker as cooly and with as pleas-
Bant a smilo as when ho had bought
his first stack.
And fifty, sixty, eighty, ninety
dollars of that went in driblets without a single winning. A single
blue chip was all that was left of
the money he had stolen to replace
that which he had lost.
For a moment he wondered what
he would do when that was gone,
for, strange to say, he had jot considered that question before. It
had seemed to him that he must
win. Hut now that the thought
obtruded itself he turned resolutely
away from it.
"Time enough for thnt," he fnid
to htmwlf, "when I am out ut tin
game. I'm in it yet, and there'*
always a chance in poker,"
The steady nerve of the good
poker player saved him. On that
very deal, there being a jackpot of
821 on the table, he caught a pair of
kings and opened it for the 810 In
had. Parker had queens, nnd cum

"That was a diverting story in
the Post a couple of Sundays ago
about the victim of ocean-going
card sharks, who himself had
marked the cards and gob hunk by
making it appear that the swindlers
had done it, but I saw an even
more ingenious get-even stunt than
that once, on one of the trans-
Atlantic liners,
ton clubman.
sengers on that cruise from New
York to Southampton was a young
Cincinnati chap who had inherited a few thousand dollars and
was on his way to the other side
to blow in part of the money.
Despite all manner of warnings he
sat into a two-handed game of draw
with a notorious liner worker.
The young fellow was one of those
would-be foxy lads and he was so
enamored of his own skill with the
cards that he didn't think the
sliark breathed that could skin him
at a game of draw.
"The. sharper got the Cincinnati
boy for his bundle, of course—
83,000 or 84,000. But the way
the thing fell out proved that the
Cincinnati lad had plenty of craftiness of his own, even if he hadn't
known enough to duck a game of
poker with a man he'd never seen
"The steamer was only half a
day out from Southampton when
the young chap lost out on the
final jackpot and found his legacy
all in. The excitement of the last
'ose out had giver, his face a fine
vorking pallor. He pushed his
•hair bnck from the table and
-tared straight ahead of him out of
bulging eyes in a crazy sort of way.
" 'Well,' he gasped, hoarsely;
'it's all off with me. I've got no
kick a-coming, of course, having
lost out in a fair and square game.
But the dough didn't belong to
me. It's my boss's money—he
runs a big millinery place in Cincinnati, and I'm his chief buyer—
and he sent me on this trip to Paris
to buy millinery trimmings with
that bundle. I don't dare go back,

swindler instantly leaped over the
table and grasped the hand that
held the gun. The Cincinnati boy
didn't know it, but this swindler
had done nine 3'ears in Dartmoor
prison, England, for swindling.
He knew, therefore, not only the
severity of English prisons, but of
English law. The steamer was
close to Southampton, and he knew
that if his victim shot himself, he,
the swindler, would be held responsible for it under English law.
" 'Stop that, you infernal young
wlielp,' the swindler growled,
wrenching the guu out of the wild-
looking youth's hand and throwing
it on the table. 'I'll give you back
what you lost, you miserable cub,'
he added in a sort of panic. 'What
the devil do you mean by playing
cards with money that doesn't belong to you?'
" 'Oh, it don't matter—I'm tired
of it all, anyhow,' gurgled the
desperate looking youngster, trying to re tch for his gun.
"His acting was something immense. It got the shark going, at
auy rate. lie pulled the gun out
of reach, hauled out his wallet, and
hastily, with trembling hands,
counted out on the table the amount
out of which he had cheated his
youthful victim. Then he pushed
the stuck of bills across the table,
" l'l here you go, you confounded
tyke, and you may be d—d glad
you were playing with an honest
and conscientious man, or you'd
have a lead pill in your imbecile
head by this time.'
"The Cincinnati youngster
snatched the money, stuffed it into
an inside pocket, grinned, jumped
to his feet, snatched the gun from
the table, and snapped it in the air
seven times.    The. gun was empty.
" 'Honest and conscientious,
h—1.'the Cincinnati lad bawled,
gloatingly, and with more audacity
than anybody watching the affair
ever suspected of him, "You're
just as much of a sucker and a
chump and a good thing and an
easy mark as I've been, that's all,
even if you are a professional card
thief working the steamers. How
d'ye like getting whipsawed on
a gouge yourself, hey? Don't you
come near me or I'll knock your
block off,' and the kid squared off,
showing plenty of sand.
"The swindler was a coward,
and he looked relieved when the
dispersed all hands from the card
room. The Cincinnati youth
wasn't viewed as squealers usually
are. He had squealed, cf course,
but he had got away with the squeal,
which makes the difference."

Wixnscm,  Ont.—A Httlo more
than a dozen years ago   Joseph
Aubin   and   Jacques   Caza,   half-
brothers, and   sons of   the same
mother, lived together in Montreal.
Caza was arrested on a charge of
murder, and,  after a brief trial,
was sentenced to be hanged.    The
evidence, against him  was purely
circumstantial, but of so powerful
a character that the jury lost little
time   iu   bringing   in   a   verdict
against the prisoner.     Hope of a
new trial was abandoned, and the
prisoner resigned to his fate, when
Aubin appeared on the scene with
liis savings,  amounting  to about
82,000, and engaged eminent counsel for Caza.     After a   desperate
legal I tattle the prisoner was given
a new tiial, and,  with the assistance of the   best   legal   talent; in
Montreal, he was finally acquitted.
After his discharge, Caza drifted
to South America, finally locating
in it large town   in   Chili,  where
through   some   fortunate mining
western Ontario,  and  went   into
the hotel husine»t in a small  way
ut Mctiregor, a small village in
this county.    He heard nothing of
Ids brother, and had long believed
him dead.   On Saturday morning
a large  oflicial looking envelope
arrived for Aubin.  and  when  op*
cued, was found to cont.iin a bank
draft for f.VMMHi,  payable to  hie
order.     Accompanying the  draft
was a letter from C.u.a, informing
