Phrases like,"Our"  Lady of the Snows" stick hard, and it  is difficult to get stay-at-home people  to believe that out here you have the  "finest climate in the world, healthy,  brisk and invigorating, where Europeans can flourish and enjoy infinitely  better health than they can in England;*:  . ' ;;;..  *' What you want out here is capital  aud population, and for years to come  you can absorb both in unlimited qunn-  tities. It must be aVmatter uf regret to  all thoughtful Britons that so much of  the money'that is pouring iuto.O'unada  is i-oming in from'the United States  rather .''than from England. .-.'London  is still the great money centfre of' the'  world, but in '-London investment in  ruled by fashion rigidly, and l'or years  past it has been tbe-fashion", to-look to.

The  return from this huge aggregation ol  cash lias been deeply di.-K.ippointiiig,  andj speaking broadly, those investors  public consumption���are in despair.  Their safes are bursting with stock in  new companies which they are anxious  to make a market for, but the investing public shows no signs of coming to  relieve them of their /.'-superfluous paper. Confidence in Australia has never  revived after the great /financial crisis  of a few years ago,'f/wheii batik after  bant came toppling down, involving  widespread ruin, and as for West Australian mining it has earned such an  evil reputation'that no prudent investor'will touch it."The net result is  that the London Stock Exchange,  which may be regarded as a fair barometer of financial settlement in'the  Old Country, is iuan apathetic condition. Business is practically a dead  letter, aiid brokers of old standing  complain thut they have never in all  their experience known such hard  times. In my personal acquaintance  are scores of brokers who are not at  pi esent earning sufficient to. pay office  rent.  "In these circumstances it is natural  that Investors in the Old Country  sliould enlarge their horizon aiid look  round them for new channels, aud as  a matter of fact more attention is now  being paid lo the Auie.i&in Continent  than has been the case for years past.  During tlie first few years after Uie  clo.ie of. the Boer War, England 'was  more or less ih .t "hard iip'1 'condition ;  money was tight and/trade was slack,  and naturally the inventing capacity of  the people was very limited.

The great interest, of course, (entered in  the exhibits  ofthe natural rebomtes of the Kootenays, but the displays made by the local merchants also commanded the admiration  of the visitors.     The  fruit  display surprised.every one.   It is only  in recent years that auy special claims  have been made as to the fruit-growing  possibilities ofthe Kootenays, but how  much has   been   accomplished   during:  ��� those  few   years 1     The   well-  lllled tables of nearly every known variety of fruit" is perhaps: the best answer.   To enumerate those varieties or  to comment on their special points of  excellence would require more space  than can be spared.   And   the other  exhibits were ofa character that must  convince even the most sceptical that  British Columbia bas a great and prosperous future.  Apropos of the visit of Sir Thomas  Shaughne^.sy, it. is to , be mentioned tliat. an incident, with .human  interest, is told as happening while the  party was at Winnipeg, en route west.  Sir Thomas was at breakfast atthe  station dining-room as a train was  about to pull out for the west. A  good-looking-young woman, dragging  a refractory child by the hand, was  hurrying to board the outgoing train.  No train authorities were in sight aud  ns she reached Uie.high steps of the  car the bell on the locomotive began,  to clang.    She *hesitat��'dy.tiewildered;  ��f   achieving   another  dramatic  triumph.     The plot of the play has been  so fully outlined in  the heralds that  have been  spread broadcast,  that   a  further reference to it is unnecessary.  Mr. Nelson as the princef. who cared  more for the hunt than the affairs of  state,   lias  a  character   that  is "particularly suited to his artistic temperament.   Perhaps more in this part than  in any in whioh he has been seen here,  does he sink his personality.   To some  it may occur that it does not afford  scope for the subtlety with  which Mr.  Nelson invests his dramatic portraits,  but, if it is lacking in this quality, it  must be confessed   that it is one in  which interest is never suspended for  a moment.   "Prince Otto" is a delightful character,* and Mr. Nelson has in it  one of the.-bestcharaleters in which he  ha. yet been seen here.     Mr. Bruce is  also fortunate in  having a part well  suited to his peculiar talents.   As the  resigning, conspirator,   "Baron .Von  Gondermark," Mr. -Bruce, was ait his  best.   This talented youngactor shows  marked signs  of ; improvement  each  subsequent visit, and he has achieved  a place in the regard of theatre-goers in  the west only second to Mr. Nelson.  Miss Helen Scott in "Princess Sera-  phina," has a strong  character, and  she can conscientiously claim that in it  she lias accomplished success.     It is  the portrait of a woman, willing, to  sacrifice everything to gain her ambition, but when disillusioned is not lucking in the attributes of a true woman.  Miss.Scott gave a splendid presentation  of the pari, and without flattery it can  be said tliat she scored an artistic triumph.     Of the other-parts, Miss Patterson had the best; and as "Countess  Von Rosen" she was seen to great advantage.     Taking it   altogether,   the  play is a good one, aiid the company  presenting it equal to any former one  supporting   Mr.   Nelson.      Thursday  evening  "David   GariuU"   was given  with practically tho same cast as when  it  was  presented  here before by Mr.  Nelson, so   further  reference   is   unnecessary.      The   houses  were  regular "Harold- Nelson   houses,   that   is  "standing room only" was the legend  written over the eribrancb.  ed tothe worn Jplaces.  .He had been  1  to helj  choicest  r-n*DYT_'r "CO juccusto,ned  to helping himself to his  XXvli.

It was unfortunate that the Rollo  troupe did not arrive for the first two  days of the Fair.' It is the best aggregation of aci'bbats ever seen in this  conn try. They are engaged for. t he  New Westminster Fair, and will appear later at Spokane. This may account for the fact that the Spokane  railway people would not hold the  train for an hour iu order to permit the  Rolloa to make connection with the  Nelson train so .that they could appear  the second day of the Fair.  The news received later that a robbery  bad beeu effected at a wine merchant's  office in the neighborhood suggested  the question whether they were in the  cellars, where the thief might bave  concealed himself, cobwebs of the  same description. There were, and the  immaculately dressed man will in future probably take a clothes brush  with him when engaged in like pursuits. He will not need one, however,  for over two years.

The fact that Canada is favorably regarded in the Old  Country at the present time is clearly  demonstrated by the big rise iu values  which has recently taken place in the  leading Canadian shares quoted on. the  London markets.

Raymond Whlttikeris  a clever actor, and it would not be surprising if before many years he won  enviable distinction on the metropolitan stage. As "Claude Melnotte," he  gave his lines carefully and his elocution was faultless. Miss Neville was  educated for the operatic stage, and she  has a beautiful voice. Last Monday  night she was not seen ut her best,  haying scarcely recovered from a long  and severe illness. But she possesses  all the qualifications of a capable actress, and must achieve fame iu the fu-  future. She was really^ superb in tlie  part of "Pauline." "Beauseant" was  taken by Wm. M. Chapman, an actor  of distinction and merit.    It was well  the Dominion executive. In company  with W. .P. Tierney, Mr. McGee renewed acquaintance with many old  timers from the Ottawa Valley, now  residing in Nelson. Mr. McGee isa  y *>unger brother of the late.Hon. Thos.  D'Arcy McGee, who was cruelly assassinated by Patrick James Wbelan,  on the morning of April 7, 1868. J. J.  McGee does not bear any resemblance  to his brother, and never took much  interest in politics. For over thirty  yeais he has been in the civilservice,  and is never heard of outside of the duties connected with his office. He is  full of good humor, and like the rest of  Irishmen enjoys a good joke.   A por  tion of his earlier youth was spent in a  printing office, when his brother was  engaged in journalism. It is not unlikely that he will be superannuated  in the near future, and then he can  spend the rest of his days in the pur:  suitsbest suited to his tnste, conscious  of having served his country faithfully  and well. Mr. McGee attended the  inauguration services at Edmonton  and Regina, and his visit to British  Columbia is purely one of pleasure.  Again attention is respectfully directed to tbe suggestion contained in  Tiik Economist of Dec. 24. It was the  night before Christmas, when inthe  prevailing spirit of "peace on earth  and good will towards men," thia paper asked :  '* What guarantee can John Houston's friends give that he will not run  away in case he should be elected ?"  This guarantee was never given, but  Mayor Houston has emphasized the  pertinence of the question by his prolonged vacation.  visitor, for a bottle* of wine aud two  partly filled glasses stood upon the  table.": A handkerchief, a lady's, was  on the floor beside her. It was at once  assumed that the handkerchief was  uiadame's, and that it had fallen froni  her band. But it was scented, and no  one bad ever known madahie to use  that peculiar scent.  Mace came to the conclJsion that it  belonged to the murderer and that the  assassin was a man of elHminate and  dandyish habits.

In the first Nelson  defeated Rossland by a score of 8 to 1  goals, but on the second, day Ross*-  laud did belter and the score was 6 to  3. The playing on the first day was  ragged, but on the second day it was  good lacrosse. The Nelson team was  stronger than when it played Regina.  and just now would give the latter  team a good run for its money.   Space  in four days Mace had found his man.  It was the scent that led ,to his head  falling into M. Deiblers basket.  In a case tried on the Western Cir-  cu it some years ago, a man suspected  of murder was discovered to have on  two fingers of his right hand marks  which had clearly been made by peculiarly shaped human teeth. The  teeth of the dead man were shown to  exactly fit into the marks, and the  prisoner was competed.  The mystery surrounding the death  of a great Continental banker was  cleared by means of a cigar holder  found in the room with the body. No  one could identify the holder. Mo one  had ever seen the banker using it.  Rut in the holder was a small piece of  unconsumed cigar end. Experts pronounced it a cigar of tho finest quality  ���one which only a person of wealth  could afford to purchase. This evidence seemed to confirm the notion  that the cigar holder bad belonged to  tbe dead plutocrat. He had cigars In  the house, too, of the samo brand.  One of tlie detectives, however, engaged in I'"1 fp.se was not satisfied.  The cigar holder was peculiarly worn  in two places. Its owner had evidently been accustomed to bite it hard.  Two teeth had almost bitten it  through. The detectives inserted the  holder in tbe mouth of the dead man,  but his teeth would not fit these hollows. The holder had evidently belonged to the murderer.   He was dis-  The members of the "Lady' of  Lyons" Company dnrirg their visit  here spent considerable money with  the local merchants. Particularly did  the Fred Irvine Company benefit by  their presence. The ladies discovered  that they could buy goods cheaper  from the Fred Irvine Co., than they  could in any store on the United States  side, and they kept the clerks busy for  an hour or so, bundling up all kinds of  ladies' wear. Indeed, they said it  would be difficult to get as high class  goods at any price ia the dry goods  stores on the other side.

Tbe   working   of   wireless   tel-  ��  egraphy ��� during   the    lirst   tnree  months of the present year is tbe  subject of a recent British government report. As is well understood,  the principal use of wireless telegraphy, in fact the only use, is for  transmitting messages between  ships and the shore, but it js not  generally understood, observes tbe  Manitoba Free Tress, how few messages go out to these that come in.  The report shows that only ni  messages were submitted by tht  public for transmission to ships,  while 1,655 were received from  ships at'sea. Ofthe former lot, 21  failed to be delivered, leaving only  go received by the persons for  whom tbey were intended, a little  less than 5^ per cettf. of the number transmitted from .the ships.  Gne reason for this disparity ,i.s  probably the fact that tbe public  bas not yet accepted wireless telegraphy as an established public  utility. The man at home rarely  thinks of sending a message out to  sea, except iu case of stress, while  those on the ship have the apparatus always before them** and accept  Ibe.new.system- as a thing tor ex-  perimfeuts/oo o .-���-. ;.  So far as the exhibits were concerned, the exhibition which closed  yesterday was a gratifying success.  The number of exhibits increased  greatly from last year, and the excellent quality vvas maintained. To  fruit particularly did this apply, the  number of exhibits being far in excess of lhat of last year, and visit-  --ors^to the _Fair_were given an op-  portunity of judging for themselves  the capabilities of tbe interior from  a fruit-growing point of view. But  it was not 'alone in fruit that this  gratifying result was ' apparent ;  vegetables,, field produce and flowers were, displayed in great profusion. In fancy work, the -women  of the Kootenays supplied ample  evidence that lhey are not behind  their sisters of the east in those fine  arts that add so much to the beauty  of the home. Altogether, Secretary  Annable and his assistants have  accomplished wonders, and British  Columbia is greaily indebted to  them for all that they have done.  NOTICE.

It is stated that tbe Austrian administration put in service not so  long ago in the central telephone  office of Vienna an automatic section  constructed according to the American Strowger system. ,'. This section supplies 200 subscribers at  present, but it can be extended to  take in as many as 10.000 subscribers. The expense ofthe outfit, as  regards the special devices for automatic connection,:reach $6,ooo for  the 200 subscribers above mentioned, not counting the mounting  of the apparatus, :the wires, etc.  This apparatus has been purchased  from the.-'German concessionaries of  the Strowger patents. Should the  trial prove satisfactory, there is no  doubt that arrangements will be  made to inaiuilactiire the apparatus  in Austria in order to apply it in  Vieuna 011 a large scale.

HE was a lovely chocolate-cream-  box sort of a girl, with a H����hln*  tenderness suggestive of buttav  on a hot day, and she was confiding in her "ownliest own" girl friend:  "The man that aspires to the privilege of pressing his. moustache upon-  my roeebud lips;" ehe began,- firmly,  "must be tall and stalwart as a pine  tree In its prime."

"His mouth must be firm bvit kind,  and his soft hazel eyes will twinkle  with a sn-"'..-> that ls at once sweetly  serious and saucily sedate."  "I fancied that I was rather a connoisseur ln smiles myself," remarket!  her friend, "but I do not recall at this  moment seeing one of the precise nature you describe. But I will endeavor,  to Imagine lt. Fill in your hero,  please."  "He must be strong and resolute, yot  'generous-and'tendef't^a'faultrtols'f^*  will light up with the fire of a strenuous passion when his feelings are  aroused, and yet he will have hia wholo  nature In such perfect control that he  will never lose that grip of hlnuelf  Which Is the leading characteristic of  the true aristocrat."  "True aristocrats have been a falllnr  market for some time past," remarked  the friend in another aside; "but thero  Is nothing like putting one's trust In  Providence." ��� c  "He must be both truly religious and  honestly manly," with the creed of tho  man of the world elevated to the standard of the highest religious principle.''  "Right, oh!" said her friend relapsing Into slang. "Muscular Christianity,  ritualism and rowing, golf and godliness, are all the go. There may be a  chance for you yet."

SOME years ago there lived ln Turin a physician noted far and  wide as a specialist of brain diseases..   Mep and women came Ic  him from the ends of the earth. "With  the development of fortune, for his fees  were ln proportion to his prominence,  he cultivated a pleasing taste for those  precious relics of antiquity in which  millionaires alone are privileged to indulge, lie had In his library a collection "of costly objects of art. The fame  of his treasures was loud In the world's  ears with the note of his skill. One day  a rich American'banker came to consult him about -his wife, a confirmed  'kleptomaniac. His life was a'burden to  him, following her from Btore to store,  continually guarding 'her reputation  against the encroachment of her "fingers. Though it had cost him thou-"  B��ands, his wife knew nothing, suspected  nothing of her own -weakness. "No'  should she ever know if he could prevent It.  "If I brought her here to consult you  as a physician," said the afflicted hus-  " b^n dr "I^f eSr=sh*e" wo ul d"^  thing and lt would kill her. If you will  permit It I'll bring her to cali- on you  as a collector of antiquities. Do not be  disconcerted, however, if during the Interview you find her pilfering, slipping  your relics and coins Into her umbrella  or pocketB. That Is the ailment, and, ot  course, whatever she takes will be returned to you at once. . My references  are So and. So, bankers." This with  much _,dlgnlty" and; the production ol  documents.  The physician made the appointment,  and next day the couple came. The  doctor brought out his treasures, wonderful coins, antique jewelry, on which  he descanted with much graceful learning. Every now and then the lady  slipped Into her pocket or dropped Into  her parasol a coin, a Jewel, a vase, and  as she did so her husband winked at  the doctor to draw attention to her  theft. When the physician finally gave,  the signal that he had learned all he  required, she hud accumulated thc rarest of his possessions.  "I'll be back within an hour," said  the Chicago banker, "with the things  my wife has taken. Poor, poor girl!"  he burst out. "Doctor, my -fortune, my  life are yours If you can but cure her."  Two hourst passed, then three, then  the interval lengthened to five. The  physician, rather alarmed, sent his servant to the American's hotel. No persons of the name were staying there  The police were called In, descriptions  given, detectives went forth. They  Identified the culprits, who had time to  make their escape. They were London  pickpockets, two thieves whose characters and depredations were notorious  all over England.  ���^���^^-#*#-*-$#-^  "Why do you call the fast bicycle  rider a scorcher?"
