The  Granby smelter treated 38,367  tons of ore in October.  Tbis week tbe Athelstan-Jackpot  ere shipments take quite a jump.  It is said tbat there ia likely to be a  reorganization at the Boundary Falls  smelter shortly.  It is reported tbat the Goldfinch, in  Skylark camp, is looking better than  ever with development.  The Mother Lode lias a private  system of eight telephones, connecting  different parts of the works.  At the Winnipeg the compressor bas  been set on its bed, and tbe connections  are being made. Next week it will be  in operation.  In October tbcGranby mines shipped  38,398 tons of ore; the Mother Lod3  sent out 12,665 tons and tbe Snowsboe  sent'out 9,480 tons.  Since the general close of the mines  5n and! around Butte, Montana, not a  fewof tbe miners have been coming  hito the Boundary to secure work.  The new castings for the cylinders  for the two 30 drill air compressors for  "the Granby mines to take the place of  those that exploded in August, arrived  -this week, and arc being placed in position as rapidly as possible.  Smith Curtis, manager of the Oro  Denoro, has been at the mine again  this week. Everything about the  property is going along smoothly, nnd  the shipments are soon to" be at the  rate of 200 tons daily, now that the air  compressor is in good shape.  The final payment on the Elkhorti,  adjoining the Providence, is to be made  next month, and will be made, like  the payments on the Providence were,  out of profits from the ore shipped.  This is one of the high grade mines of  the Boundary, the ore running over  $100 per ton, and Phil McDonald and  James Sutherland,who have the bond,  cviden tly have a splenpid property  Several small properties in the  Boundary have receutly had development work started ou them. Dr.  ~Averill"and"associates "are" working "oil  the Bugle, and he is also working on the  Minnie, in Summit camp, near the  Emma. Chas.

The Monitor shipped 63 tons of ore  during last mon tit.  Tbe force at the Ivanhce is to be  increased to 80 men, -  More men have been added- to the  force tit the American Boy  Some excellent ore is being taken out  of the Bell by the lessees.  The force on. the Wakefield mine  was this week red need to 16 men.  "Work is expected to be resumed at  the Howard Fraction at an early date.  Sandon mines last week shipped 200  tons of ore,. 98 of whieh came from the  Ruth.  v.  The construction of the new .mess  house ut the Enterprise is pretty well  under way. '      -   -   ���  Two men were pu t on last week to  improve the trail to tbe Black Prince  for rawhiding.  Last week the Slocan ore shipments  approximated 500 .tons, making about  13,000 tons for the year.        .-        *-*   Z  As a result of the first 20 days' run  of Lhe stamp" mill at- the.

It has created a  big stir in thecairi]>.  YMIR MINING NOTJES.  A few days ago Hon. D. W. Higgins announced  that his best story would appear in the Colonist of the  8th inst. Mr. Higgins kept his word, for of all the  interesting stories yet written by this gentleman, undoubtedly " Caledonia H. Collins" is the best. Like  so many of Mr. Higgins* stories; the one appearing  last Sunday deals with events in the early history of  Yale, once a great mining camp. Many who have  witnessed the production of-'4 The Danites," written  also by a Canadian, have often wondered how"Bilty-  Piper" succeeded in keeping the secret which was  only discovered under the most unexpected jcircuin-  stances, yet Mr. Higgins shows how easy such -jl  thing can be, iu thestory of " Caledonia H. Collins:"  This is the story of a woman who came from California to Yale disguised as a man in search of her  husband. . The secret of her sex was preserved until  one morning .the young wife gave birth .to a baby..  The story of how the event was received by'the- residents of the mining town is most interestingly told  by Mr. Higgins.  here a few months ago. Several of the old favorites  remain, but there have been a few' additions' to the  organization. Miss Mathes has added a number of  new pieces to her repertoire, perhaps the most notable  being tbe one in which she appears' on the opening  night. The. company will tour California .for the  winter months.  ���  Kaslo Kooicnaian.

Joseph Ryan, who has been here  lately in the interests of representatives  of capital who proposed erecting lead  smelting and reBr in g woms, here has  A strange thing has happened in" connection with  the retaining wall for the new James Bay Bridge!, at  Victoria. . The expensive* stone wall has bulged out'  fully seven inches. A month ago this" bulging process was first noticed and since that time the masonry  has sagged another inch. Moreover, the- wall was  tied to the James Bay bridge by long bolts and there  is now visible a distinct .curve in the train trades  across the bridge. "* By way of ^giving support 300  piles'are now being driven, but it is a bad place to fill  in ; forty feet of mud underlying tbe four- feet of clay  forming the bottom^of the bay;. The^c'tona papers  have been keeping the matter very quiet/but riotf-.'  that the secret has become' public property, both the'  Colonist and Times are felling what the council thinks*  about it. Several private meetings of the city council  ���were held to especially-- consider the matter, and at  these'meetings a number ofthe aldermen indulged in  remarks the reverse of complimentary ofthe manner  in.which the job was haudled. Though' the reporters,  were excluded from these private sessions^ they were  nevertheless in possession of info rmation about all that  occurred and could at any time have given an accurate account of the proceedings. The work was  under the supervision of City Engineer Topp, aud  while it is admitted-thai-he has-met with a great-mishap in his career, there is no disposition to condemn  that official. That the wall has shown glaring evidence of weakness is not disputed for a moment; and  the interesting point in the situation seems to be tbe  necessity of suggesting a remedy. The Colonist learns  that some of the most competent experts say that the  intrinsic strength of the wall was weak in the first  place ; that the inevitable lias occurred. It -is-believed  that the loss to the city will amount to about $50,000.  The citizens of Rossland are getting ready for the  municipal campaign. Over there a number of citizens have banded themselves together.as reformers  of city methods, and have' placed as the chief plank  iu their platform the abolition of the salaries of the  mayor and aldermen. The principal reason given  for the proposed retrenchment is the depleted condition df the municipal treasury and the absolute necessity for a curtailment of expenditure. Of course  the citizens "of Rossland.know their own business  best, but it does seem as if the proposal to cut off the  mayor's salary was retrenchment in the wrong direction; The mayor of every" city is at* more or less expense iii tlie discharge of the duties of' bis office, and  it is scarcely fair.that he should be asked to stand the  whole of this expense. In .Nelson it is doubtful if the  mayor saves one dollar out,' of his salary ; besides he  contributes a great deal of his time to the- city in the  way of carrying on civic business.'*' With* the aldermen it is somewhat different' .While they also have  to sacrifice a great deal of their time, yet they have  nothing like the number of calls made upon their resources that falls to the lot of the mayor. Retrench-  ment may be necessary in Rossland, even to the'ex-  tent of cutting.off the mayor's salary, but we hope no  one Cwill entertain" a-like-'suggestibn in-Nelson tor  some years to come. .   ��� y'. ,'.'���' '������" '<���" "-- " *'" "  ���The death of Miss Ivy Johnstone, eldest daughter  of Mr. George Johnstone, has been the cause of  universal sorrow in Nelson. ���The deceased young  lady enjoyed the friendship of every citizen of Nelson,  the large number who attended her funeral being the  strongest possible testimony, of the esteem in which  she was held.- Her,.death coming so unexpectedly  rendered the shock so much greater.

Judge WaTkem rendered long and faithful services to  the province of British Columbia. Since his arrival  in the province in.the early sixties he has been prominently identified with our public affairs, and can  truthfully be said to have earned a well-merited rest.  In securing for British Columbia many valuable concessions in connection w'i-.h the entrance of this province into the Dominion confederation, Mr. Walkern  rendered a service to tbis province which should have  been recognized in some more lasting manner than  it has been so far. It has been the custom in this  province to recognize long and faithful service. This  has uot been done in the case of Judge Waikein.  Knighthood should have come to him in connection  with his superannuation.  The Victoria Times is going to make a specialty  of reporting the proceedings of the forthcoming session  of the'legislature, and as everyone is interested in  anything that will take place' in the House in November, it would be well to subscribe for the Times,  which, by the way is one ofthe best daily papers in  Western Canada,  :The Clara  Mathes company  begins a week's engagement at tbe Nelson Opera ^House next -Monday  Messrs!

The whole of the distance between  Howser lake and the West Fork of the  Duncan has been definitely located and  the general contour of the country is  admirably adapted for tbe building  and operating of the line proposed.

No matter. Waneda. had the soul  stuff of centuries behind those womlerfn  black eyes, and all the gloss and bri!  liancy and heat and cold of sunbeam:  and moon glint3 i:i the bundles of wav\  black hair.  "Where had she picked up the hand o'  jingly coins which she wore on her head'*  No one ever saw Wancda. without hei  coins.  Then the short skirt, with that hroail  band of Mexican embroidery in Fcrsiai'  colorings.

Beautiful, wonderful, inspiring Wan  eda-���dreaming dream.3 or building castles or���remembering���for, after all, an  the dreams of our imagination only mem  cries, or perhaps prophecies?  And what shall wo say of him, of tin  first and only man who had ever quick  ened the pulse or dyed the dusky cheek  of Wancda?  He wa3 from a. far-off city, had bid a  ���wife and daughter an affectionate good  .bye but a week before. He was civilize*'  and scholarly, cold and calculating.  Even the laurel wreath which hail  rested lightly on his'brow for almost p  icore of years had only convinced hi'.r.  .'that he was endowed with an intellcr-  and wise enough to make, use of it. 1L  possibly knew that it was an advantagi  \o be over six feet high, of magnified*!  physique and handsome face, but a st:i  dent clever enough to see so much b<-  yond that what he had accomplished dh-  not appear much to him or make hiu  conscious of his greatness.  He had wandered some five or si;  miles from the small Mexican towri���n.m*  .eat down on a fallen palmetto tree a"  the edge of a grove.  What difference  where Wancda cam'  from or who she was?  "Why, my beautiful princess, have ih  gods sent you to break the monotony '.  tha dullest day of nil my life?"  The   lips     smiled,     the    bright eye-  . flashed.  "Yes, I have come and you have com*  A better seat is just inside the grove."  Without a word, he followed her au  .   when they were seated:  -    "Tell me," she said, "why you came"  "I came to see you." "And it did no-  cound like a lie.  "Tell mo what I shall call you."  He. laughed,   and   thought   of   Shaki-  epeare's rose.    Then lie -thought  of hi  own important name, that looked so we!  _ in print,  nnd  then, he  told another ii  :  that sounded like the truth. f  "My name, dear girl, is Bill. Just ca'  me Bill.   And .what- shall I call you?"  "I am Wancda, and I do wish yo-  had a nicer name than Bill. It'sound  bo hard, and one has it quick."  ���"Quite true, Waneda. Yours is a nam-  one can linger over, and,'-having ihitahc:  saying it, repeat it over to listen agiii:  to its music���Waneda."  .    "If you are rested, we will walk."  "Just as you wish, little princess. Nov  tell ine where you got your name;- W��  neda."  "I never got it; it was always mine. 1  grew up with me, and you were alway  ���mine, but you have been such a Ion-  time coming."  She placed her little, dark hand i:  this and. silently they walked for man;  minutes.  What had he found? Was it pos3ibl  that a little, dark, weird thing, howeyi:  beautiful, could actually  affect him?"  Why, he was wise, and had such keen  ���Analytical ability. He had reasoned on:  this thing called love long ago. Yes, o  C0M99 he loved hiai wife and daughter  -=H=!:butH--after^all=-it-==w'as==HJust^one^oL=^tliL  phases that went.to make up the dram:  of life. Now���now as be walked hi  deemed to be intensely alive���fear���won  der���but sublime ecstasy. ^  "Do you know, Wancda, that y'bi.  ���lave intoxicated me ? Let us go back anil  ;sifc down, that I may-look- into youi  '���beautiful eyes. And so you have been  ���waiting for me, dear one. Now that J  have come are you glad?"  Tears came into the wondrous dark  eyes. She cuddled up close to his arm  and leaned against him. A tired si*,rh  blended with the words "So glad." Hi  put his arm about the little crouching  figure.  The sun had almost faded from tho.  sky, and far above it the thin little new  crescent could bo seen ia silvery paleness.  Her wavy black hair scintillated in tha  dying lijjht. With his free hand ho  "brushed it back from her forehead and  lovingly stroked stray bunches ol it.  The only sound to break tbe stillness  was when one coin jingled its metallic  edge against another.  Ho wished that time had stopped and  this could be the eternal now oi life.  Tbis must bo what sages thought of  when   they  ��*pokc  of  heaven.  Quick as lightning's Hash, Waneda  leaped from his arms, jumped upon the  fallen tree and threw her arms about  his neck.  "Now I must go, but you will como  again to-morrow. Yes, each to-morrow  you will come, and each night you Will  istay later, for the moon will grow. Then  ���when it is round and full and all tin-,  stars are twinkling aud laughing, ther.  Wc w'll bo married, you and t."  A littlo brown band was on each sido  ,oi  the   handsome,   intellectual   face.    A  moment   she  looked   in   his   eyes,     nci  lips met his1.   He was about to clasp her  in his arms, hut she made a dart and  ��� disappeared among the tall palmettos.  '���'Well, I'll be-biowed!" came theunro-'  ;rnan.lk: remark. He called' himself .a.  ;few fools, took ofi* his hat, aud started-  back to the clearance. Having crossed r,  .railroad track on his way with Waneda.,  ihe decided to follow it back-to town.  A train passed him when part way  j there. He was never more grateful for  ; any happening in his life. The fiery  headlight, the rumble aud roar of tha  engine, ail suited his mood. He could  have yelled with delight, sworn with'  jHajltieBS,   cursed   "jvijh   disapDoinimcnti  and "when the sound of tlie"trainTai?  died away in the distance he waa beginning to analyze.  .   Back to himself!  How delightful it "had-all been, but  what did it mean? How foolish! Simply a pleasant adventure with a mighty  ���pretty   girl���true,   ft." <*ue��i*,   wonderful  little thing���and different.  When he reached hia hotel, being  thirsty after his long tra-mp, he drank a,  glass of ale and retired.  No���not to sleep. Waneda bad in one  short hour become part of his very life.  Of course he'd never see her again���  madness to dream of! it. And was he  such.a fool as to fall in Jove even with a  weird, wondrous creature who talked to  wildly about having waited for him?  Morning came, and lie wandered aimlessly about the town. -Would the after*  noon never  comet  Long beforo the sun began to fade,  "Bill" (and, of course, bis name was not  Bill) was on his wny to the grove.  He wandered about for some time anil  then, not seeing Wnnctla, drifted in to  their seat on the fallen palmetto tree.  The moon became visible. He was  becoming impatient, anxious, almost  fearful, when n light, step and the jingle  of coin3 told him he had not waited in  vain. He sprang to his feet, and, like  something wild, she leaped into bis arms.  Ho kissed her passionately and then, putting her at arms' length, said: "Waneda,  who are you, and what has thrown you  across my path? 3 iear for what will  come of it." ��� ,  "Who am I? Just Wancda. ��� You see  me���what I am. ' Now, you arc lard and  cold.   Surely you love mc?"  "Yes 5  'tis  easy.enough to  love you,  but���"  He said no more.  She was looking at him with those  wondrous eyes, that seemed to know and  live worlds of thought and Tcason.  He sat down and took the brown little  thing in his amis.  She chatted away about birds and  (lowers, daylight and dawn-tune' and  black, nights, when so much more could  be seen. Occasionally a. little brown arm  would slide about bis neck. He thought  of a diamond ring, belonging to Ids  daughter, that she had .given bim to  have i cleaned. ' He bad neglected giving  it back to her, and now took tbe itiny  leather case from his pocket, opened it  and hiuided it to Wancda.  The fading light relleeted back tht  rainbow glints from the piecioU3 gem.  Waneda jave a cry of delight.   "I wili  place it on your finger, small, wild girl.'  She was about to allow him when suddenly she objected. ���;.-������  "No, loved one; not to-night. Th--  moou must be full, and we must say tht  words." ���"-'  "You are talking of the marriage,  dear, hut this is not a wedding-ring. This  is ju3t to show you that I love you."  He slipped it on ber linger and with  pardonable pride watched her admire, th*-  seven-hued lights that' caught the pretty-  stone. .   .  She laughed a happy laugh. "This i.-  tho ring 1 have dreamed about,"  Sh'3 jumped upon the log, put he^.  arms about his neck, kissed him quickly ���  violently, and disappeared a3 on - th-  night  before. ���_.-  This .time he said, "Tha dcvill"    Bu  never-in  all  his -'e&lmy reasonable' lit-  had such a cyclone of emotions surge..  through his being.  This night he slept, but only'to drea::  of Waueda. -   . .  Night after night he was by the falb:  palmetto, and as the moon grew large  'io was allowed to stay later.  .

This branch of their  education receives a good deal of attention at tliea Aldershot: training camp,  writes-W.; G-. Fitzgerald in tlie "Royal  Magazine." The veterinary officer and  riding-master of the regiment supervise  the work, arid only experienced men- are,,  allowed to assist.  The great thing is'not ..to force or  alarm.the horse during his training, but  rather-to lead him by easy stage's to enter' the water quickly, fearlessly and as  noiselessly as possible. If terrified at  the "start, the"horse, would be likely to  fight shy of deep Water- eve^r after. So,  on the first day the man who has charge,  of the horse walks his pupil about on  the edge of the water, just permitting  him to wet hia hoofa and fetlocks. Tho  next day the horse ia introduced:a little  farther into the water, perhaps up to his  body, and allowed to splash round as "he  pleases. In this way.tlie horse iai gradually, taken farther and farther in, until  at length ihe loses his footing and start*  ���swimming. quite naturally, tbe man in  charge'swimming by his side to give him  greater confidence.

The men of each troo;  fet into a boat, and by means of .thi-  ead ropes bring their horse3 into thi  water alongside. Then the hoat is hauler  across the river by a rope manned fron.  the opposite sade^ and the kor3C3 necessarily follow.  At times the horses .are exercised it,  bearing their riders    across'  on    theii,  backs.   The horse wears only the head  "'collar and bridoon,.and the rider strip.-  ���himself,  and  throws ;]ii3 legs ..-tip ..along  the horse's flanks so  as not to- impedi  the': animal's movements.
