The Mother Lode mine has about  110 men employed.,  At the Granby mines the payroll now  numbers 360 men.,.    -.....:  At the Fife lime quarries an average  of 150 tons daily are being shipped  to  .-. the Trail smelter/ and -thejreare 30-men  ..'on. tbe payroll* ;���-,..        -���-.'-.  It is expected tbat in  the course of  six months the 40 stamp mill-of the  -Nickel Plate -mine, at: Camp Hodley,  , will be in operation. .  The compressor 'at'tbc Winnipeg is  now being set up at the mine, the repairs having been completed at th?  Granby smelter machine shop.  ������ New castings, tb replace those blown  out in the new air compressors at the  Granby mines a couple of months ago,  are expected to* arrive any day now.  It is said tbat the ore   shipments  'fioni the Emma mine, Summit camp,  ���will soon be increased to 300 tons daily,  which will icquire an increased force  of men.  With the completion of the new ore  pockets at the Old Ironsides mine now  under way, the Granby Co. can load a  train of oie without hardly moving a  car.  ��� At the Oro Denoro mine,' Summit  csmp, the compressor is now working  iii good shape, and three drills are being operated in breaking down the'ore  jn quarries.  Latterly the Athelstan and Jackpot^  in Wellington'camp, have not been  shipping quite as mucu'oreas formerly,  owing to the difficulty in getting teams  to haul it to the Winnipeg spur:   A''  Good progress is being made with the  foundations for the converter building  for the Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood", and the 135 foot brick smokestack  is also going up at a rapid rate..  On account of the heavy eastbound  traffic on the Boundary railway, including ore shipments from Republic  ��� mines, a helper engine is-now in commission constantly from' Cascade to  ���'iVnY'-if ' :'"���<: 7 'iv- ; ��������� ���'.���<������'.-:.- :.

Owing to repairs necessary, to the oro  crusher .at _the Mother Lode mine,;  shipments of ore have, up to this week,  been somewhat reduced for a time past.  Some of tlie repairs were made atthe  Grauby;niach'irieshop in Phoenix.  'O ���: .-".'jrt���"������ .-.-"���' '.'���   -,-.'���.-  ��� '��� ���' -��� '   - :    '  ��� It is reported.that in tercets identi fled  With the "Granby mines have taken over  the Senator and. an adjoining claim, in  Summit''camp, for ��35,000. on a work-  ihgbond. The ore has a high percentage of iron, and is easily shipped,  being near the, C. P. It track..  Grand Forlss .Sun.  Ij. H, Moflat, secretary of the Italh-  muHen Mines, Ltd., accompanied by  C. VV. Wood, one of tho directors,  visited tlie mines last week'. The object of their visit was to look over the  property with, a view to commencing  work at once..  ���;, Chas. Simpson is buy.doing ussess-  mentwork oh the.Iron Cliief fraction,  adjoining, the. Uctts...aml lJecperus  group;oii Hardy mountain, and has  struck some good looking ore. lie has  ��� already had an offer for the property,  but docs not fceldispostd.toaccept.il,  'in view of the promising showing now  being uiacle.: :.: .--vo.  connection with the tramway from the  Hunter "V. mine,.for which he is contractor. ..'  ��� ���- A-two-stamp mill has.been installed  at the Gold Cup and a quantity of ore  is this week being run through. The  first shipment will probably be made  early next week, and should this prove  satisfactory several extra stamps will  soon be dropping.  Norman Carmichael, the well-known  mining engineer, and J. J. Campbell  of the Nelson smelter, paid the II inter  V. mine a visit pn Thursday. They  are pleased with : the progress being  made with the tramway, and are anxious to see it working so that regulaT  shipments of ore may begin.  Development work on the Tamarac  continues and there is every reason  for the belief that the mine will soon  regain its former prominence as one of  the most important propositions in the  camp. During the week Wm. Rolt,  of Ro?sland, one of the directors of the  company, paid the Tamarac a visit in  company with S. S. Fowler the well-  known mining engineer. The tatter  gentleman has been examining the property thoroughly and it ts understood  was very favorably impressed.  Development on a larger scale bas  recently been started at the Wilcox by  which means the rich Fourth of July  vein will be opened up at a greatdepth  with comparatively little dead work.  The No. 2 tunnel on the Wilcox claim  proper, which is already in On the No.  2 Wilcox vein about 400 feet is being  run farther in such a direction as to  tap the Fourth of July vein some 300  feet below the present workings, the  distance .to ye driven being less "than  400 feet. Four carloads of ore from  the mine were, shipped to Nelson tbia  week. "There arc 2T> men .employed,  and work will be continued throughout  tbe'wi nter.  The liayonne mine, at tlie head of  Summit creek, has been bonded by the  owners George Harrison and Fred Ris-  dqn,,to Messrs. Wagner, Jencweskiand  Karlcy brothers, of Butte, Montana.  The new- holders of the property, will  _commence_\vork_;witli a_small forcei of  men at the property on Monday next,  from which date their bond commences.  It is their intention to continue development work on the property all winter  and install a mill in the spring. During the past summer the owners of the  mine did a. lot of surface work, tracing  the lead-across the group for 3000 feet,  [n the course of this work they struck  several cross lead.s,.on. some of which  high grade ore cropped out. Tho Butte  firm will open up one W these new  leads, besides continuing the tunnel,  which is now in about 500 ft. The ore  is principally a free millinggold proposition, with some"concentrates. There  are nine eliiirus in the group.  EVENTS AND GOSSIP   L  P,  'Ocal and  JL rovincial  Even amongst the people who are not friendly to  Mr. Houston, there is a general belief that Bishop  Perriti has exceeded his authority in engaging in the  dispute over the refusal of the lieutenant Governor  to approve of the appoiuttnent of the member for Nelson city to the office of Lands and Works. The  question is one that concerns the people, but it cannot be said that Mr. Houston has set himself up in  antagonism to the church, and until he does so, the  church should, refrain from interfering in a matter  with which it has very little concern. The member  for Nelson city has au up-hill battle to fight:, and if  he shows the same determination that he has in the  past; it cannot be truthfully alleged he is altogether  unequal to the task. Let him have it out with the  politicians and the newspapers, but it is not fair play  to launch the curse of the church on his head.  Mr. Joseph Martin's contribution to the all-absorb-'  ing topic cannot be said to be unexpected. Mr. Martin is no longer- in a position to keep himself before  the public in the capacity of legislator, so he has te-.  sorted-to the press to satiate his burning thirst for  notoriety.. Neither is lt surprising that the defeated  member for Vancouver should leap into the ring in '  the defence of John Houston, because in many re-  pects Mr. Houston is a man after Mr. Martin's own  heart. It is doubtful, however, if Mr. Martin in the  Quixotic role of "redresser of grievances" will improve Mr. Houston's case with the jury of pnblic,  opinion. He simply ..asserts tbat the charge brought!  against the member for Nelson city is one that might'  be brought against other member of the House, but-  thisdoes not relieve Mr. Houston of the odium of  having attempted to set the authority ofthe House at*  defiance. It may be that Mr. Houston is no worse than  more prominent member's of the House, as Mr. Martin asserts; indeed it hss'long been suspected that  many members of the British Columbia Legislature  are no better than lhey should be, and it is gratifying  to have'this" suspicion confirmed by a gentleman so  ���well qualified to express an opinion on that point as  Mr. Martin. The fact remains, however, that an example had to be made of some one, and while it may  be unfortunate for Mr. Houston that the lot should  have fallen to him, the whole country is to be congratulated that. in future honorable members will  have ^q-begovernedby the. rulesof the House. ���Mr.-  Martin has not improved Mr. Houston's case, but he  may have succeeded in directing attention to a painful-incident in his own career.  Mr. Fraser has been awajr three months and was accompanied by Mrs. Fraser. He had been absent  from his old home for nearly thirteen years, and observed many changes in the place in which he was  born and spent his boj'hood days. It was Mr. aud  Mrs. Fraser's intention to visit Mrs. Robertson  (widow of J. Roderick Kobertson) at Loudon, but  Mrs. Robertson wasabsenton a visit to Scotland, the  only time they had at their disposal.  SLOCAN MINING NOTES.  YMIR MINING NOTES..  ".;, .-_   ���;      .       -Ymir Mirror.   . - .  :l Herb .Porter, has thrown .up his cou-  .tract;on;the A-tlin.groupin consequence  -ofvWdter .troubles./ .-;-o-    ���  ?-:R.N.Riblet.waS'in- town this week  looking over the work being''xipne- in  The average commercial traveller affords an interesting subject for the student of hiiman nature.  Take, for instance , a traveller who is making his initial trip. You can always pick him out at a glance.  He enters the hotel office vvith a swagger thatis intended to convey the impression that the best room  in the house is not half good enough for him. He  looks around the .office and seems surprised to find  that his arrival does not create a sensatiou. Then he  approaches the hotel register with a consequential air  and places his name in tbe book of arrivals. The clerk  sizes up his man and is prepared for anything. The  young man gives his orders in a tone not to be misunderstood ; he wants the clerk to understand he is a  distinguished guest, aud that if he is uot treated right  he will ruin the he use.'He wants his trunks brought  Sandon' uiir.es last Week shipped 142   up a(. once. and ^^ over the porter-s head-     Then  he is assigned to one of the worst rooms in the house.  The old travell.-r knows different. He greets the  clerk with a cheerful " how-d'ye-do,"- but asks for  everything as a favor. Fie wants the best of it,-too ;  and.he knows that the way to get it is by exercising  a little diplomacy. Everyone around the hotel likes  the old traveller, but the young man is regarded as an  unmitigated nuisance. Freshness in any young  man is annoying, but in a green commercial traveller  it is .positively exasperating.  '   Slocan Drill.      .  --Slocan mines last week .shipped 32-5  tons of ore. .-���---  tons.of ore;  All told there an-over 450 men working in the Slocan.  ���'The men from the Arlington  came  down the hill on Friday.  The Pajne's  /.inc. soparathig, plant  has coin minced operations.  A number. of .miners  from   Butte  have appeared in t lie camp lately.  ThcBosun mine, at new-Denver,  has closed.down.tight, quite a number,  of.men being let out. :  - The Spyglass group of mines, on  Poplar creek, has been, bonded to It.  G. McLeod for JS5.0CO. "  The Spokane police have begun a crusade against  the messenger servk'e in that city for permitting boys  of tender years frequenting houses of ill-repute. It is  a wonder tbat something of this kind has not been  done in other cities'.. It does not require a philosophical mind to reason out that a great deal of injury  m ust be done to young boys who axe permitted to  frequent houses of ill-repute, even if it is only in discharge of their duty. Familiarity with crime can only  result in one way. - :,/������'  The boys more than enjoyed themselves on Hallowe'en, and as a consequence the heads of many  families have been mourning the loss of gates all week.  ���Perhaps as we grow older we incline to loose sympathy with boyish pTanks, but just the same themis-  chevious work of last Saturday night is to be condemned. No one objects to loosing a gate once a  year, but when the loss of tbat gate results in damages to lawns etc., there is some excuse for wrath.  Several gentlemen report that they have not yet found  their gates and that cows and other aunitnals are permitted to run all over their-grbunds., A Z * * -  On-another page we give an extract fromthe  Revelstoke Mail dealing" with the. Houston episode..  We cannot endorse the sentiments of the editor of the  Mail, but we give the extract merely to show the  estimation in which the electors of' Nelson are held  throughout the countr}r.  Chief of Police JarvU is collecting the  road tax this week.  Kaslo has a school enrolment of 91,  with an average attendance of 83.  B. F. Clarke, of Teetzel & Co:, has  left to visit his old home at London,  Ont.  Thomas Taylor, M. L. A. for Revelstoke, was a visitor to Nelson this  week.  There are a great many complaints  from the Camoorne people over the  poor mail facilities. Something should  be done in this matter at once.  The young man Frederick Frank,  who was aocidently shot in. the  stomach by a companion In the Lake  district the other day, has since died.  G. C. McLaughlin, Nelson, will  wrestle Frank Unfried, ' Rossland,  catch-as-catch-ean, best two falls out of  three, at tbe Opera House on tbe even-  ing of November 12. *J~~ ^' .    .  The month of- October has been the  best from a business point of any  month during the last four years.  Merchants report a large increase In  business in every line.  - The Bishop of Columbia writes to .the  press to declare his satisfaction with  tbe principle laid down by the Lieutenant-Governor tbat he baa a right tore-  fuse on moral grounds his sanction to  a mau'a Cabinet-office holding.    v  There has been a change in the Nelson/ Kaslo, Lardo and Trout Lake"service. Since Wednesday the trains on  this service have been operated, on a  new schedule. The boat arrives at Nelson at 18:15 aud leaves daily except  S u n day a t 7 o'clock.  The powerful story of " Quo Vadis" was well told  at the Nelson Opera House last evening, by the Harold Nelson company.     The play has been seen here  several times, but no   former production appoached  the performance of last night.     Mr. Nelson has exercised considerable discretion in adding this piece to  his repertoire, for it is doubtful if he has done anything  better than his Marcus  Vinicius.     As to tbe  company  giving   the piece, it  appears to have been  specially selected for "Quo Vadis.'-'     And it might  be said tbat several changes have taken place- in Mr.  Nelson's company since he was here last, and perhaps  some of those changes are not for the best.     But on  the whole his company'is better.     The version given  by Mr. Nelson differs slightly from the Jbrmer two  seen here, but the  changes are those in  which  the  spectacular  features  are sacrificed for artistic effect.  The staging of " Quo Vadis" is the most elaborate  yet seen in ' this city, and  the story is fairly closely  followed throughout.     Mr. Nelson makes a splendid  Marcus Vinicius, while Mr. Eruce was all that could  be desired  as Petronius.    The  Nero of Mr. Roland  was repeatedly applauded.    Ofthe new additions to  the company, the most notable is Miss McLeay.    We  understand this lady is a sister of Franklin McLeay-  the well known Canadian actor, who died a few years  ago in London.    Certainly sh* is an actrass.of a very  high order of merit, and is certain to bring.a credit to  herself and the stage. Lack of space prevents lengthy  reference to the various ladies and gentlemen who contributed   to the success of the performance.     This  afternoon, " Taming of the Shrew" was given, arid tonight, " Hamlet" will be produced.     Mr. Nelson, it  is pleasing to note, has  dispensed  with the variety  features between the acts of high-class plays.  A petition has been filed against the  return of the four Victoria members,  Messrs. It. L. Drury, W. G. Cameron,  J. D. McNiveu and Richard Hall. The  petition is made in behalf of B. J.  Farmer and A. B. Nobbs. It includes  the usual charges in connection with  snch matters. Mr. D. M. Eberts represents the petitioners.  Miss Gertrude M. Tierney, eldest  daughter of Mr. W. P. Tierney, was  married at her father's residence "Wednesday morning to Samuel M. Brydges.  Rev. Father Altboff performed the ceremony, the bride being assisted by Miss  Stella Tierney and Albert M. Brydges  acted as groomsman. The happy  couple left for Spokane the same morning on tlieTr wedding trip.  Information from Vancouver is to  the effect that phns have been passed  by the department of public works,  Ottawa, for the construction of a floating graving dock to be the lurgest on  tha Coast, und to cost half a million  dollars. The plan takes advantage of  the government guarantee of 3 per cen t  on tbe bonds. The dock will be built  ln the east end and work will start iu  the spring.  The citizens of Iteretstoke will have  a new brewery to quench their thirst.  : The concensus of opinion in Nelson  is that Mr. Houston is now sorry tbat  he spoke.  W. A. Macdonald, K. C, is at the  coast attending the meeting W the Full  Court.  A party of sportsmen, composed of  Dr. Kail and others, left for Alberta on  a shooting excursion.  The Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association met last Thursday  and elected officers for the ensuing  year.  Contractors announce that several  large buildings will be erected nest  year, besides any number of small residences.  Charles Wilson, K. C, has accepted  the portfolio of Attorney-General. Tbe  Liberals of Vancouver will oppose his  re-election.  H. & M, Bird have been appointed  agents for the Canadian PactSc ItaB-  way's Joyc lots in Nelson and lauds In  West Kootenay.

The loss  on building and machinery is not  quite total, as the boiler will be used  attain. There was about $1,500 insurance on the building and contents ko  that the net loss Is imall.  John Fraser, of the B. C. Goldfields, has returned  , from a trip to Belfast, and other points  in Ireland.  Speaking of thu Houston Incident,  the Vernon News says : *���' A man, who  has no more self-cotitrql nor sense of the  proper fitness of things thantostir up  an audience of his constituents by an inflammatory address to such a ridiculous  indictment of the Lieutenant-Governor  as was pronounced by the citizens of  Nelson on Thursday night last, is  scarcely the man who couldl acceptably  till the important position of Cabinet  Minister."  The Clara Mathes company will bagin a week's engagement at the Nelson Opera House on Monday,  November 16th.  Mr. Wootton, Registrar of the Supreme Court at Victoria, write? the  Colonist tbat he agrees In the main  with Bishni. It'il'ey'si views. Hs adds  that he, Mr. Wootton, bas lived at  Port Simpson, and knows the disputed  territory. Mr. Wootton adds that  Sitkian and Kannaught, the islets conceded to tbe States, never were British  territory, whilst Canada now receives,  under the award, Wales and Fearse  Islands, which have been taken from  the United States.

In a -receivt mog-azine article "William  g, "Walsh discusses the question, "-Hare  "Women Intuition?" He does not throw  bouquets to feminine vanity, for *h��  writes:  Literature 3s the final expression of  human thought. If women can lay  ..claim to a special faculty of intuition,  why do they not manifest it In their  writings? Intuition, if it means anything, means the faculty that seta  down to the germ of actions and characteristics and focuses external traits  Into a central verity recognizable to  the general public. Now there are  more female writers than male. No  woman poet has ever" written an inevitable line, a line that flashes spontaneously but of the -unknown and  casts an Illuminating light upon . the  abyss. Woman has added -practically  nothing to our stock of familiar quota-  lions. Take down your Bartlett or  your anthology, and you may be surprised to find that from Sirs. Browning  to Mrs. 'Meynell womon have never  coined a phrase which has passed Into  the common currency of speech. Mrs.  Browning has Indeed written fine lines,  "but nothing or hers can be said to have  become a household word.  Nor has any woman novelist created  any character that Is generally recognized as typical.- George Eliot-has  come closest with -her Tito Melema and  (Mrs. Poyser. Tou would appeal only  to the educated few if you described a  person aa a Tito or a Poyser. But call  a man a Don Quixote, a Micawber, a  Dogberry, a Falstaff, a Colonel New-  come, a Blifll, a Parson Adams, a Bob  Acres; call a woman a Mrs: Malaprop,  a Becky Sharp, a Beatrice, a Diana  Vernon, a Meg Meirilies, and even the  illiterate will mentally classify the individual as you wish him or her to bo  classified.  "Ah, but," you say, "in real life women are the true intuitions. They size  up a man cr a woman at a glance.  They are never mistaken when they  trust to their instincts."  I can only testify to my own experience. I. havo not found that women's  snap judgments of character are imbued with any special verity. They  form likes or dislikes quicker than man  does, because they are quicker on the  trigger of conjecture. They can only  be one of two things���right or wrong  If time proves that they are right, as-  they must be in fifty per cent, of cases,  the right gniess is remembered ant!  treasured up by the slower-minded man  as an'extraordinary instance of'iniui-  tlon.

In a slewing tribute to  the American actress, Mrs., de Navarro declares: "She is the greatest  emotional actress I ever saw," and  adds the significant! warning to stage-  struck girls: "I hope she who  ���writes this work -will help to stem the  tide of girls who .so blindlyrush into a  profession of which they are ignorant,  (for which they are unfitted, and ir.  which dangers unnumbered lurk on all  sides.

Court etiquette and religious scruples  have had an amusing tussle at The  Hague. The trouble arose when the  daughters of Dr. Kuyper, the Premier,  were invited to the first court ball o(  the season. Dow-necked dresses w;7r.e  com'manded, but' the Misses Kuyper de;  elded that decollete dresses were inconsistent with their religious principles. They applied for a dispensation,  but received a curt reply from the  mistress of: the ceremonies, jwrhoo de^  ~ciafed"-that-tlii^fionbTFd customs of"  the Dutch court must be adhered to.  Dr. Kuyper made direct representa-  ,-tions on the subject to Queen "Wilhel-  mlna, with the result that a compromise was arranged, The Misses Kuyper will stay away from the ball, but  will take tea with their sovereign in  high-necked dresses the same afternoon.  The "Tailor and Cutter," which has  been, accustomed to describe Joseph  Chamberlain as the pink of fashion,  has this to say of, the Colonial Secretary in a recent issue: "We are sorry  to note that Mr. Chamberlain is developing quite a stoop, and fear he is  losing some of his old-time smartness,  lt Is true that his monocle is still in ita  old place, but we miss the familiar  orchid,'and, as we have examined hU  garments, we could not but feel that  conservatism was-sadly apparent, for  there was much in them that was not  up to date." Mr. Chamberlain's coat  lapels, says the "Tailor and Cutter,"  are plain, heavy, and disfigured by a  long-,- gaping breast-pocket, like somo  ugly wound, calling for assistance. Tho  washing vest or Mr. Chamberlain, the  paper adds, was quite out of harmony  with his coat, while his trousers were  wide and unshapely.  All princes are not aremes. Duke  Karl Theodor of Bavaria recently performed his four-thousandth operation  for cataract at his clinic in Munich.  'His wife acted as his assistant.

The -experience of a college gTaduati,  named. Levenworth, who taught for"a  year in a Littlo "Western town, Is a.n example of the way In ���which a teacher  sometimes -wins the admiration of Ma  pupils qui te . -unexpectedly.  Lev-en worth was not a teacher by nature or profession; but, as many men  have done, 'he spent a year teaching to  get money enough to help himself  through Uie law school. He was a  hearty, clear-minded fellow, who kept  iia.th.e-i- aloof from the townspeople. The  local paper spoke of him as having  ���"had. a'promising career in college."  Part of this promising career had, at  it happened, been spent in athletics.  Ho had learned to box and wrestle,  and Jiad won his. class championship  ln. the a r't which, from its unfortunate  association with the prize-ring, haa  not so good a' reputation among the  peaceful as, in its legitimate form, lt  deserves. '  His school was quiet and orderly  from the start, but he found It hard  work to get-on intimate terms with  the twenty boys under him.\-They  obeyed, at >fl distance, but did not show  much personal friendship for him.  One dir.y at recess, when the schoolyard was a clamor of voices, the young  master heard a sudden lull. Looking  out the Window, he saw the children  lined up against the fence watching 3  -teamster, who was stupidly trying to  ���whip his horse up the hill that ran  past the school. The wagon was loaded" heavily with garden-stuff, and the  hors-e was doing his best to no purpose.  Suddenly one of the boys went into  the street, and evidently remonstrated  with the driver. -For answer he got art  ugly slash of the whip, and reeled  back, holding his hands over his eyes.  This-.-was-too much for- Lev-en worth.  He ran downstairs and out across tlift  playground. Coolly pushing a stone  under the Wheel with'his foot, he com:  manded the teamster, a -gaunt,^sinewy  '"mS^to^eoine^offnils'seat.  The fellow grew hostile at once, and  obeyed. Jumping down, he approached  the schoolmaster, ready and eager fn*r  a fight, and heated to dangerous anger  .by liis struggle with the horse.  It -was a real, old-fashioned fight,  with the power of anger and excitement on' one side, and skill, backed by  those almost infallible allies, right and  justice, on the other.  There was enough left of the teamster to drive his horse, while a dozen  boys put their shoulders to the wheels  and pushed the wagon to the'top of the  hill.  The pupil whose task It was to ring  the bell for the end of recess was a  minute late that day. The teacher was  late, too. It took him ��. little time to  put his clothes in order and wash hl.t  face and bands. Meanwhile the school  .assembled,, not vv-ithout some noise ant)  excitement, and took their seats. Thej  were subdued and orderly when L-ev-  enworth came in and walked to his  desk.  Before he had time to be seated, and  as If-by a preconcerted signal, the pupils began to applaud. Discipline ami  modesty made the teacher ta-y to stop-  them. It was useless, so he smiled.  Then they cheered. The disorder of the  next minute was quite against the  rules, but nobody received a black  marie on the schoolmaster's deportment  book; and after that, to Leven worth's  surprise, there was a r.ftw and warm  friendship in the bearing of the lioys  toward him.  Buried by a Cougar.  A huitt-e-r vho was trailing after  bear meat 1st British Columbia reports to t"he "Western Sportsman"  an ��� experi-ence which he calls a  "narrow gra-Ee.*" If the Incident happened as the hunter tells it, lt was .in-  deed a narrow graze; but one' cannot  help suspecttng that some of the Invigorating ozone of the North-West ha.*  got into tlie story. Nevertheless, It Is  worth hearing.  "It was ivaim and dry, and along  In the middle of the afternoon I began, to pine Cor rest and a. pipe. It  was all quiet and no traces of game,  and so. when I'd had a comfortable  smoke I stretched out for a nap. ...  "It must have been an hour Inter  that I woke up and found myself covered with two feet of leaves snug as  the babes In the wood. I ^waa a 11  tucked In that cosy that nobody else  could have ��Lone lt-'but a cougar, and  most likely a female cougar at that.  3t occurred to me with some force that  Ti been filed away for future reference, and that I hadn't waked up  any- too soon.. It didn't soothe me to  figure on that cougar stowing me away  as a dog hides a bone.  "It seemed that the best thing for  me to do wa.s to countei-mine that cougar's mine, aa -lt were. So I hunted  ���up a log about -my size and covered it with the leaves���a nice fat  hump on the ground. Then I shinned  &~tree close T>y, assuring myself beyond any doubts or peradventures that  nobody had meddled with the working  of my repeater.        . ,,  "The cougax came in such a short  time as to show, how fortunate it was  that I had -waked up when. I did,- and..  -with her, as 3 had calculated, were a  choice lot "of young ones. She.had left  a. dinner located and had been "off to  g-et her family.  "Well, .'ttMLt cougar circled around tha  pile of leaves for a matter of minutes,  crouching and picking a nice select  place to -spring from. When she got  satisfied and. made the leap she went  through the air tremendous, throwing  the leaves in a whirlwind and scratching and snaxling." it was some of a  shock when site found the log, but she  didn't display any disappointment. She  just took thfc scent and came to tne  foot of my tree and looked up, .real:  venomous.  ������"It seemed to her an awkward job  to handle, X having my gun ready so,  and the coug-ar had an inspiration.  She went to a. tree about ten ftet away.  and started' to go up. She was after  that meal a.rad not to- be discouraged  by any trlfres. It was her idea to  climb up above me on the other tree  and then bring me down with a flying  leap.  "I didn't Lose any more time with experiments or speculations, but let her -  have lt the llrst time she carne round  ���the tree. Th.6 ball went through her  jaw and breast, and the varmint went  to the ground. - The. young ones wera  running around, and I knocked theni  over, too, -with the sun.

"Yes," waa the reply, "but let me toll

A friend or" Edward MacDowell attend-
• ed a recital given by a mediocre teaeh-.
cr's pupils, and when he met the American coauposer he remarked: "T heard on-e
of tbe pupils, a little girl of eight, play

sighed dejectedly. "I suppose," Mac-
Dowell remarked, "that sh« pulled it up
by the roots."
During the-protracted sessions of tho
Paruell commission, Justice Day habitually sr.fc with closed eyes. It was commonly supposed that -his lordship was
Bleeping, and the late Sir Frank Lock-
wood, observing that the learned jutl^c

between the president and" Sir Charles
Russell, exclaimed, quite nudibly: "This

Chauncey ar. Depew declares that
wlieaKing Edward, as:Prince of Wales,
visitjd the United States, the old Duke
of Newcastle used to scan the accounts
of expenditure. At the end of one hotel
bill be one.day found a charge which he
couldn't make out. "JYhat's that charge
■for?" asked the Duke of the hotel proprietor. "For making such a damned
iuss," was the immediate reply.
General Nelson A. "Miles says that dining tlie Civil "War there was one conscription fakir who made thousand;) .of dol-

accosted' a shaggy, farmer-looking native
r.t a Queen's County, station with tho
words: "Well, Pat','what ilu you think of
the King-of England r.o-.v?" "King of

and. there stole'over hW 'face'su'i inimitable-'-expression--of-drollery, aa he went
on. in a stage whisper: "Swro, avie, ye'll.

Tlwiik heaven, there is still some mystery left in the world.    A book with a
title like that of "The Masked Tawar-
eka"^   m-a-lces    us     grateful     that     we
lire now and not some hundred years
ftence, when all the tracts of the world
will be accurately mapped and epitomized in gazetteers, when no surprise will
meet the traveler anywhere, when savage peoples will have died out or have
Become civilized into shirts and Sunday
ha.ts, and-wild beasts will survive only
as stuffed specimens in museums.
'-. The masked Tawareks!    Critical, lion-
isty compels us tosay that the author
Is: & mighty long while in  getting  at
them; "but the journey and the search
ire  thoroughly  enjoyable. *. Tlie Ta war-
ska are the people we hear of so often
iii  connection with French extension in
.North. Africa.;'. The Sahara is-their country—tlie Sahara'of sand, loneliness and
desolation; the Sahara of the oasis, the
palih    plantation   .■ and . the     solitary
ino'stiuc. 'As to tbe.origin of the Tawar-'
eks and tlieir language -let the learned
decide.    Our author describes them as &
Berber race; but, whatever their history
or descent, certain it is that to-day tltsy
aro'noinnds 'of  the -.Sahara   who   levy
blaclanaiL on all ^'hb  use the caravan
routes  through  the desert, and, failing
concession :of their demands, make free
to pay.;themselves in the "good old way,
lhe  simple   plan.".-   They ' live   in   small
wandering- coinmunitie's far from the settled haunts of other peoples, to whom
they nreoknown  chiefly as raiders who
eonie, like, .a   whirlwind   upon   the   eri-
.cariipnneat in the dark before, the dawn,
.and'.inatefJ'iio.:.scruple   to   take  human
"life^.if.jfcUey .are/resisted.    To  visit-the
Tawareks, note -tlieir ways and customs,
and  if possible' photograph   their  countenances,. ;was. the; object of-our authnr.
This la si promised to .be; difficult,-..forit^
is ;a "point of-'almost Teligious etiquette
aihong   the Tawareks  to  keep the face
covered up to the level of .the eyes with
a   folded   cloth.     How Mr. King found
his Tawareks at last, and succeeded  in
taking   photographs   of; three   of >their
^wonien', whom-he-persuaded, to unveil in
the absence of.the..men, makes most Interesting-"reading.   -Tlie  countenance  of
the:' youiig-; male  Tawarek  whom, with
much greater difficulty than in the ease
of the Women, he induced to uncover his
.face, is1 extremely fine-as; reproduced by
photography.   The youth might be poet
as well'as warrior._ How far. it is typieil
tie author doe3 not say, and ..probably,
'cannot, as he had few opportunities cf
.seeing uncovered faces.   But-he tells ns
enough  of . other ncharacteristics  of   the
:TawnTeks,   the   pride,   the   dignity,   the
small  -well-formed ■ hands,  the    stature,
the fearlessness, to-wake in us that ancient belief-in the open air as the-truo

-stirrci once more.   Again we leant the
true   MgnificanHce   oi    that   aadiy  mls-
lised word "oasis" as we follow the little conij>any.of men and camels, through
"jome long day's journey over the limitless sand, so hot that it can scarcely be
held in   the hand, so, unpermanmt that
the  piled-itp   mounds   and   dunes .shift
f to iu  year  to   year,  so   loose  that   in
places   one  sink's  in  it - ankle-deep,    In

.stretched a green place of shrubs, trees,.
berrie3   and   flower«,   a   place-  of   mud
houses,   mutl mosques  and—-water.    On
the morrow the desert again, and sand,
*<ind, as far ns the next oasis.   We havo
read of all this before, of the glare, the
-ky colors, the mirages, the salt pools,
-'nit we do not remember to have heard
>f the "weird, unaccountable droning of

orooning of tbe night winds among the
