I don't know what I ever did to
cause the sporting editor of New
Denver's leading excitement to
conclude that I had treated his
bench with' contempt. But he
came to that conclusion, and you
might as well try to pound reason
into a wet hen or a supreme court
as'into him. He sentenced me to
"do" the ball game Saturday afternoon as punishment. I was ready
to apologise, this being the easiest
way out of such things, but he isn't
as easy as some other people, and I
had to ''do" it. 1 never "(lid" its
much baselmwIingasHome children
who pass my kennel, and to he detailed ou a tiling like this fairly
scared me. But I managed to get
my hearings nnd reached the scene
of battle soon enough. I always had
the idea that baseball was a scientific game. I don't think so now.
It does not require any
special training. You
must'be either married
or single, though; and
I discovered that if you
want to play better you
muHt get married; if you '{Alftftt
are single they just let
you go through the motions. But
you can't play hall in New Denver
if you have the ineaolett, are in jail
or dead. Otherwise there are no
restrictions. It ia as easy to play
ball aa some other things, and
much hotter,

Canada will be making an earnestbid
for the steel and iron trade ofthe world,
for the freight carriage of America
across the Atlantic and for the freight
trade to South Africa, says nn Ottawa
correspondent of the Chicago Chronicle.
Up to the present time the great manufacturers of the United States have
reckoned too little with the strong commercial spirit of the Dominion ana have
not counted sufficiently on its great
natural resources.
The nien who are at the head of commercial affairs here have been working
slowly but surely. They have been
gradually developing mines and other
things and have looked forward with
confidence to the time, which is now at
hand, when the money kings and
princes of commerce of the United Kingdom would realize-that it might be of
real advantage to take a serious interest in our affairs
These Canadians no doubt have
realized more or less that a combination'with the powers of wealth in the
United States always would be tainted
with a desire on the'part of their neighbors to control everything and swallow
had that was good and profitable in
Canada piecemeal, with perhaps the ulterior motive of swallowing entire
Canada, and the constant aim hae been
to effect a sort of offensive and defensive partnership with the mother
Not only have the rich English-speaking merchants and speculators worked
to that end, but the French millionaires
and leaders of commerce have bent
their energies in that direction, and the
two classes are working hand in hand
and shoulder to shoulder.
The Canadians at the head of tho
great Canadian-English company, are
James Ro«a,!theiScotch-Canadian street-
railroad king, who is gradually becoming one of tho iron and steel rulers of
the world, and Senator Forget, the resourceful French-Canadian financier.
A conference has recently been field,
headed by these two men, at which it
was formallv decided to form a gigantic
iron and steel trust, involving the Da
minion Iron and Steel company and the
British corporation, which is considered
one of the strongest factors in the iron
trade in the United Kingdom. The
name of this corporation is still kept a
secret but It is admitted that It controls
works In the principal British mining
areas, the Midlands, Lancashire anil
South Wales.
Senator Cox, an Ontario man whose
shrewdness in large business enterprises is • bvword, and whose name is
ou tho list of directors of nearly every
Eiworftil industrial company In tho
oinlnlon, had only a day or so before
come from England, where his work
had been to bring the Uutish corpore
tion Into line. This apparently he has
•done and from thn netnl-oflicial announcement made, it seems that the
only obstacle In the way of HoUhlng up
thedeal is the question as to the value
that shall be put on the property owned
by the two great corporations.
The specialty of the English i-orjv»ra.
tion Is tlie manufacture of machinery,
and Senator Cox, it mom, ha* con"

A fine trade iu the first above named
article has been carried on between
Canada and Sou*h Africa during the
war. The Ogilvie Milling company of
Canada invaded South Africa with its
goods three months ago via New York,
and 8in»e that time lias shipped 75,000
barrels of flour.
As for the transcontinental fast line,
tho general opinion among the merchants is that it would--be a great success.
Up to the present time-a great proportion of Canada's trade with Great-
Britain has passed through New York,
Boston and other United States ports,
because the merchants claimed thev
received the benefit of quicker delivery.
If this can be remedied there will revert
to Canada hundreds ef thousands of dollars which in the past have been paid
to the United States.
Quebec will make a great bid to be
made the western terminus of the service. Montreal people think that it
should be established in Montreal, but
the consensus of opinion is that no matter what place is selected the service
should Jie^estabbshcd at the earliest	
possibis moinent.."
Immigration to Canada is being continued at a wonderful rate. The farmers from the United States keep pouring into the west and new plans for
settlers fromEuropeare beingdeveloped.
The latest scheme: is to start a colony
of well-to-do Germans in the Northwest, and plans have been completed
to begin with 100 families, which are to
be settled there by next spring when
the frost is out of the ground. It ia understood that these farmers are to have
from $750 to $1,000 each before thev
start from Germany, so that they wiil
be insured against any unexpected disadvantages they may encounter during
their lirst year's stay.
The Canadian Paciiic railway has
been trying for a long time to secure
this class of Hcttlcre, and thn- man in
charge of the movement, Otto Swarg of
Berlin,!* convinced that it will boa success, because there are iu Germany
many hard-working people who havo
saved up $1,000 and who can do nothing to better their condition,
Mr. Swarg leaves in December for
Germany, where it seems he already
has picked out a number of settlers who
will bo ready to leave for Northwestern
Canada under his guidance.

certain sections ofthe local press
which appear to be afraid to denounce the tyranny of Yankee labor loadera We are pleased to
notice, however, that, the Vancouver Province is free from such

against the quite unjustifiable cessation of work at the Fernie coal
mines which romlted in the shutting down of nines ami smelters iu

When a prospect has had a shaft
put down 100 feet, or a crosscut
tunnel has tapped 'it at a depth of
100 feet under the hill and found
little of promise, that prospect, as
a general rule, had better be
abandoned. If it does not show
at about 100 feet, the chances are
that it will not show anything
promising or big at 500 feet. The
conimon infatuation of miners for
"richness at greater depth" is, in
ninety-nine cases out of one hundred, a fallacy.
When a new district has for a
year or more been punctured over
with prospect holes from 50 to 100
feet in depth, and nothing worth
calling pay ore has been found,
that district had better be abandoned.
When a district, despite ite favorable geological surroundings,
shows very little good float scattered over it. it is a bad sign and
argues unfavorably for the exploration of the district. If these general rules were observed thousands
of dollars that are now uselessly
squandered in prospecting and iu
' (hole-in-the-ground'' investments
would be saved.
Generally speaking, a vein that
is going to prove a wbig mine shows
itself definitely on the outcrop, or
by float scattered over the hillside.
There are exceptions, of course,
but they are the exceptions rather J
than the rule.
The finding of an abnormally
rich assay in a pocket in a prospect
by no means argues for the future j
richness of the vein. Such accidents are common in all mines,
and experienced miners are rather;
shy of "specimen" mines than
It would be far more encouraging to find the vein'as it went down
increasing in size, and in a "larger
body of low-grade ore, or to find
richer minerals gradually coming
in as a concomitant of the ore.
Water i» large quantities en-
eoiihteffed ih the early stages of a
pfospect is an unfavorable sign, for
it generally means that with depth
water will increase rather than
diminish, and the extra expense of
machinery, pumps and haulage will
require the ore to be above par in
richness to make up.

ter is an important factor to be considered. A large, low-grade property may warrant a concentrating
1 or other mill upon the spot, but a
small vein requires very rich ore
to counterbalance the cost of freight
and treatment. It is one thing to
find a prospect, and another to
know what to do with it when
An experienced expert can generally form some idea or size up a
prospect by examining the material
ofthe dump thrown out. If it is
fairly well mineralized the chances
may be good, but if the dump is
little mineralized or "hungry"
looking, it is rather against the
prosjiect down below.
When a little ore is found ina

Copper mines are among the
most ancient, some of them now
producing having been iu commission for centuries. The Rio Tinto,
which is now producing -30,000,000
pounds of refined copper annually,
with a profit of $7,000,00 to the
owners, was worked before the
Christian era. Its ore now averages
about 2f per cent, copper. The
Tharsis, adjoining the Rio Tinto,
owned by the Sulphur and Copper
company, produces 2,500,000 annually, and was opened somewhere
about the same time aa the Rio
Tinto. The Mansfield mine of
Germany was opened in 1199, and
has been worked continuously
since, the ores now averaging 2\
per cent, copper; annual product,
4,000,000 pounds of refined copper.
In Japan the Ashio and the Yosi-
oka are very ancient. The former
was producing in the 16th century
1,500 tons of copper annually, then
being credited with being the lav
gest copper mine in the world, I.
Fot'ukawa owns this mine, and has
brought it out ft'-dtn discouraging
conditions to & first-class property,

A lawyer who has won some distinction through ' his success iu
compromising suits for damages by
accident, says his most interesting
client was a Swedish farmer from
Delaware county, whose wife had
been killed in Philadelphia by a

The widower was simply inconsolable, and, having been told that
he could get $10,000 if he insisted
on pushing the case, refused for
months to talk compromise. The
lawyer, of, course, did all possible
to keep1 the hearing back, in the
hope of discouraging the Swede
and at last he was rewarded by an
offer to settle at a reasonable figure.
The Swede called, the lawyer said

You will doubtless be surprised,
my dear sir, to learn that your sou
te still prulongiug his sojourn iu
Spain. Let me hasten to assure
you that I have not fallen a victim
to the witchery of a flashing-eyed
senorita ; neither do I prefer this
land of romance and tinkling guitars, to our charming Chateau of
Fagnes. My stay here has been
involuntary, and, as I write, I am
propped up in bed—where I have
been for the pafct fourteen days—
with a wound in my side, and tenderly cared for by the very man
who, in a fury of passion, gave me
the sword-thrust which laid me
low, and which he is now trying
hard to cure.
When I started out on my trip
around the world, you said to me :
''• Here, my boy, is a letter of
credit which will cover your expenses. Go, seek for adventure,
enjoy every phase of life, and do
not be afraid to narrate them to
Well, I have tried to follow your
instructions, aud as a result am
stretched here on my back, and it
will be. some time before I am
thoroughly convalescent.
A week ago I arrived in Toledo
to see the sights. Next day I
bought a guitar—even though I do
not know how to play—attached a
blue ribbon to it, slung it over my
shoulder, and sallied forth at dusk
in search of adventure. I had
taken but a few steps when my attention was arrested by a quaint
house of ancient Moorish design,
which stood in a small street to my
right.    As I  paused in the jnoon-

regarding the unique edifice, an
elderly female approached me. "If
your lordship is the gentleman who
Was here last night, will you have
the goodness to follow me?" she
asked, after a moment's hesitation.
Here, I thought, was a chance
for adventure, so I eagerly seized
it, and signified my willingness to
follow hor. The duenna conducted
me tli rough a small gate and up a
flight of stairs, then opened a door
aud suddenly vanished as if by enchantment.
[ found myself in a large, well-
lighted, richly-decorated room,
whope walls were hung with glittering armor. I waited patiently
for some beautiful creature to appear, and you can fancy my astonishment when three handsome
young men, followed by an old
man, entered unannounced. All
carried drawn swords.
" Traitor!" said the old man iu
a tone of anger, "you are caught
in your own trap—you, who have
inveigled yourself iuto this home
to bring dishonor upon it. These
young men, however, who are my
hoiih, will avenge the injury done
their sinter. Your death alone can
wipe out your sin-!"
1 cannot tell you. sir, of my
amazement. I had uo sin on my
conscience, and I curatd the stupidity and love of adventure which
had led me into such a com prom in-
ing situation.
The four men, satisfied that I
wan At their mercy, moved into a
corner of the room and talked
eariip-ntly in undertones. From
their motions I divined that they
were disputing about the di*|>oHn'i

"Silly falsehood," cried the
Again I asserted my innocence.
Peril inspired me, and so warmly
did I plead that my "accusers began
to-waver. Once more they spoke
together. Then they approached
me, the oldest of the brothers; acting as spokesman this time.
"Weare convinced that,we nave
teen mistaken. Nevertheless! you
must die, for you are possessed of
a dangerous secret." j
; But I,protested■'with' vigor! giving my word of houor that I would
hold inviolable everything jhat I
had seen and heard. j
After further deliberation the
four men forced me to take ? fearful oath never to reveal their Secret.
Needless to say, I swore to everything and anything, the more so
because I did not even know the
name of the girl whom some one
else had betrayed. Then having
decided to let me depart in peace,
thc same old woman who had been
niy guide into the house, reconducted me into the street and as
mysteriously disappeared.
For a moment I stood, all bewildered. Scarcely had I taken
four steps when a man rushed at
me, his eyes blazing with fury,
and crying : " Defend yourself,
I had barely time to draw my
sword, and not being an expert in
its use, I was quickly run through
the shoulder.
"By my faith, sir," I said to
my adversary, "I am willing to
be killed, if it is absolutely necessary, but I should like to know
why you wish to kill me."
"Villain," he hissed, "have
you not just left the side of l)on^
Sirena, my mistress ? Do I noi see
in you a rival as odious as jher
treachery is vile?" I
'' My God," I explained, "you
have made a grave mistake."   j
"Dare you deny it!" he added
excitedly. ;
And as I replied in the affirmative, his expression changed. He
evidently was impressed with my
answer. j
Then I made a clean breast of
everything despite my terrible oath:
You should have seen; sir, How

arms around me, insisted on caiVy-

called in the most expert surgebu

hovered over me, giving me the
most tender care and treatment. I

details, but know yon will be interested to learn that he has made
