They-have the finest lot of  timber in the province, and it is expected that next spring there will be  a saw humming on tlio belt.  E. P.

He is a thoroughly up-to-date  man..  ''"Supt Wheeler was down from the  Hunter V. mine yesterday, and reports  everything as going on satisfactorily.  Good progress is being made at the  mine, and as soon as the tramway is iu  operation, the Hunter V. will be a  regular shipper.  Those who attended the St. Andrew's banquet the  other evening were made the victims of a rather good  joke. It came to the ears of a few gentlemen who  were not present that the banquet proceedings were  not quite so hilarious as usual, and that the usual  felicitous messages had not been received. Thereupon it was arranged to get some blank telegraph  forms and send the Scotchmen a few messages of  congratulation. One was written as coming from  Andrew Carnegie..another from Paul Johnson, another in Chinook from some" one else, and a half-  dozen or so others. Then the messages were sent to  the banquet table.and were read by the chairman and  toasted in proper style. When the joke was discovered the next day some of the Scotchmen wererJis-  pleased, but the perpetrators are still.at large.   -  The following from the Colonist will be read -with  interest iu Nelson : " Those members of the Hoiise  whom Harry Wright, M.

The poet evidently misunderstood the vagaries of  love's young dream when he wrote-that in the spring  a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.  At least the sentiment does not apply in Nelson. Perhaps climatic conditions may have something to do  with it; but certain it is that never in the history  of Nelson have there been so many weddings as during the past Week,: and this is not springtime, either.

The next meeting of the Provincial  Mining Association will be held at  Victoria, February- 22.  The return of Mr. Nelson has been greeted with-  generous and well merited appreciation in the way of  large audiences. His production of Lytlon's master-'  piece, "Richelieu," while in some minor respects it  fell short.of the performance given last spring, was  really meritorious, and the audience who witnessed it  left the theatre fully satisfied with Mr. Nelson.  In the strong scenes, Mr.-Nelson proved himself, an  actor of great merit. Friday night, "Damon and  Pythias" was presented, and was quite in line with  tbeother^performances,..given here  by1 the,Nelson  Byron White, who is one of the best posted mining  men in the Province, is in the City this* week. Mr.  White expresses the belief that conditions in the Slocan are improving and that the prospects for the winter in Sandon are very good. It is encouraging to  hear such a report from a man of Mr: White's standing.      ,  .Mrs". R. S.' Lennie and her two sons returned Monday evening from a lengthy visit to the coast.

No doubt when the time  time comes, the citizens of Kelson will  sustain their reputation for arrouaiug  enthusiasm in municipal campaigns.  The tone of Mr. Houston's speech in  the.House, gives rise to the. belief that  he was once more pleading for sympathy. He docs not, however, appear  to have accomplished his object.

"Calamity Jane" scrambled to  [the sent, lashed" the horses into a run  ��� and escaped. It was this same McCanll  tvvho afterward was made tlie'most mem-  lorabla example of "Calamity Jane's"  ! vengeance.

The dancing of the two-step tb  waltz time and the grotesque positions  assumed by tlio dancers are evils attributed to the college fads that.have vitiated the public taste-. "Some of these  students" said one pi-pfessbr, "invent a  series of Simian contortions and football  tactics and-give it a ^college name, and  tho puhlic illiii'kE> it is all right because  the college men do it.

A majority of  the people now seem to daneo a two-step  to waltz music. This is.not right.

When the North German Lloyd steamship "Kaiser Wilhelm II." reached New  York recently and disembarked her cabin  passengers at Hoboken, one of them, a  United States citizen, addressing himself  to a policeman' on the pier', caused hiin  to arrest a fellow-traveler, also a United  States citizen, on a charge of swindling,  the fraud, according to the accusation,  having been perpetrated "by means ol  unfair play -at cards during the voyage  across the Atlantic. The officer, aftei  having conveyed hi3"pi-isoner to police  headquarters, subsequently arraigned him  before the acting recorder. The lattei  informed both the plaintiff and the police that his court had no jurisdiction in  the matter, and referred 'him ��� to the  United States commissioner, who also declined to deal with ihe case, on tht  ground that it was beyond the competence of the federal authorities. The  Hoboken police thereupon communicated  with the German consul-general at the-  portof New York, and on .receiving fro re  him an intimation that he knew of nt  law under whieh ihey could hold the  prisoner, were obliged i-o set the lattei  at liberty, much to the disgust of th*  plaintiff,.-who complained that he anc  some of his friends had beca victimized  to the tune of some ten. thousand dollars.        . _L__" '.."..    -. .-  ��n  Navy Gut Mild, Medium and Full  ���Navy Mixture.
