POST OFFICE STORE  After being cold for a couple of  months, on account of a shoitage of  coke, on. account of troubles in the  Ciou's Nest, the British Columbia  Coppei Co.'s Mother Lode smelter at  Greenwood was blown in again last  Wednesday morning. During the cessation of opciations more or less coke  was received, arid when work was resumed that smelter had over a thpus-  and tons of that indispensable commodity then on hand  oi  furnace will be placed in operation, it  is expected, in a few days. It is also  said that two more furnaces will be  added to ihe equipment of this smelter in a short time, giving it a capacity  of spine 1,500 tons of ore daily.  During the close down of the smeller woik has been going on at the company's Mother Lode mine in Dead-  wood camp, though on a much reduced scale. At its smallest the mine  payroll had 15 names thereon, but this  number hus now been: increased to  close to 75.  Economical Qre Extraction.  This week the Pjoi.ee. mn|i made a  visit to the -.{other J.ode mine, and  was shown aroi|nd by S. C.Holman,  the foreman, mo$t coqiteously. It was  over three ..years since., the last visit,,  and m'anychanges and impiovemen'.s  hid been ,made, including a 35 diill  air compressor and two oie ciushers.  Tlie'most far reaching advance made,  however, is the system of gloiyholing  or quarrying the ores froni the surface.  In many ways the system in use now  at the Mother Lode is similar to that  in vogue at the Knob Hill for the last  year or two. The ore is quart ied on  the surface'and run ..through raises to  the tunnel level- below. Here the ore  cars are hauled by mules several hundred feet to the outside., this being thp  ���only nvne m the Boundary where this  kind of power is utilized. |  While waiting for the smelter to resume the Mother Lode force has been  busy in preparing for a greater output  than eve:-from the glory hole. New  ground is being opened farther up the  hill that will materially increase the  tonnage. As this surface ore can be  gotten out so cheaply, nipst of the shipping for the present will be done from  (hp quarries, instead ol from the original underground workings, where there  are also many thousand of tons of ore.  Under the present system probably two-  thirds of the former force will double  the former output. At present enough  ore to feed one furnace, about 400  tons, is being sent down the hill daily,  but this will soon be doubled to Soo  tons.  Those conversant with the facts as  sert that some of the cheapest mining  in the world is done right here in the  boundary at the Mother Lode and  Knob Hill mines, where the ore is ah  handled by gravity after being broken  down. As the grade is low and margins close���especially with tha present  price of copper ��� it is necessity to  mine extensively qnd on modern plans  tp dp it profitably. Tin's what is being done in the Boundary today.  As to the ore bpdy of the Mother  Lode, there is evidently sufficient pay  ore in sight to keep the smelter running for many, many years. It is, from  60 to 100 feet wide on the surface, and  the bottom of the 300 foot shaft is  probably 450 feet below the apex. The  Mother Lode is undoubtedly one of  the great mining propositions of British  Columbia' today. It has a superb  plant, which, so' far as the Boundary  is concerned, is second only to the  mammulh affair now being manfac-  tured for the Granby Co.���the latter  being the largest yet manufactured 01  installed in the Dominion for mining  purposes.  WILL ENFORCE TAX COLLECTIONS.  Government Shortly To Advertise Realty, for  Sale.  This week John Kirkup was in the  city from Rossland, on bebalf of the  government in regard to tax collections  on real and personal property and also  for income taxes that are .delinquent.  Uesides being gold commissioner for  Rossland, Mr. Kirkup is assessor and  collector for the district between the  Columbia river and Rock creek. On  this' trip he has been in Greenwood,  Midway, l'hoenix nnd Grand Forks.  In l'hoenix he is collecting-realty taxes  on lots assessed by the government before incorpoiation, that is,for the year  1900.  About tlie middle of September Mr.  Kirkup will begin to advertise for sale  all lots on which the tax is delinquent,  adding about $4 in expense, on the  average, to each lot. The notice will  appear in the British Columbia Gazette  TO SMELT  1,000 TONS  Capacity of a Newly Organized  Concern.  TO OPERATE IN KETTLE RIVER VALLEY  At least, that Is What a Report from Grant!  Forks Stales���As Usual, lite Ores are lo  Come from'lh. Mines of This Camp.  and in one paper of general circulalioi  As soon as the realty sale has  been  dollars.  All personal pioperty taxes must also  be paid belore the end of the curieni  year, or be subject to distress and. sale  to collect the same. Mr. Kirkup has  received directions to enforce collection of ail the taxes due the government. He also says that, according to  the new act, the provincial revenue tax  ot $3 for the year past can be collected  the same as for the current year. Thi.  will be interesting news to those 'who  did not happen to pa.y last year.  QisflslroMs Fire at Rossland.  Monday afternoon a disastrous fire  broke out in the heart of_' the city of  Rossland, and before  it   was  stopped  pa_rts_pf/o_ur _bus^ g,one  up in flames. The fire'department of  Trail was called upon for assistance, as  well as that of the War Eagle mine.  The total loss is about $70,000, with a  partial insurance. P. Burns & Co.,  one of the heaviest losers, are intending to rebuild their establishment with  brick.  SMELTERS  IN BUST  Coke Famine is Thing of the  Past.  TWO   FURNACES  AT  THE  GRANRY,  Ore Shipments Are Qra.ually Increasing, and  Are S6.oq Exgected to Reach the Former  Figures.  Mrs. T. Sweetman   left  for  Seattle  by Monday's Great Northern train.  That mining matters are brightning  up somewhat in the Boundary this  week is evident from the fact that two  of the three smelters have resumed'operations, although not yet at fid I capacity. These are the Granby and  Mother Lode, and it is expected that  the Sunset smelter will be.running also  before long, the coke famine for all of  the reduction works being practically  over.  . Monday morning two furnaces at the  Granby smelter were put in blast again,  and have been running steadily, with  the probability that Qup or two more  would be started in the near future.  Something over a hundred cars of coke  were on hand, and the supply continues  to ariive daily from the Crow's Nest  collieries,  As the force of men at the Granby  mines have been working steadily during the two weeks' shut down at the  company's smelter, a large reserve of  ore had accumulated, and the starting  of work at the rediiction works did not  mean the immediate enlargement of  the mine force to qny great extent.  However, tl^ere are more men at work,  and the force will be increased gradually as the smelter can handle more  ore.  An inspection of the Pioneer's weekly ore table this week will show that  shipments from the various miqes are  increasing oy\ce n\ore, with the probability that they will soon reach the old  figures of from 10,000 to 12,000 tons  per week.  When smelters are built, or talked  of being built, in the Boundary, the  great majority of them immediately  turn to some of the mines in and  around l'hoenix for a supply o( 01 es.  It is undoubtedly a fact that when all  the mines of '.he Boundaiy now capable of shipping regularly are worked  steadily, the piesent smelting capacity  will be found to be greatly inadequate  ���to say nothing of the tonnage now  available from Republic mines over  two railways.  So it is not surprising to learn that  there is talk of the construction of an-  othei smelter at or near Grand Forks,  in the Kettle river valley, which will  have an initial capacity of a thousand  tons of ore daily.. At least, that is the  report sent out broadcast from Grand  Forks, and we sincerely hope it is more  than mere rumor. As usual, the new  smelting concern is stated to expect to  draw on the chief camp of the Boundary for its ores���which, of couise is  practically the only 'camp'.where such  a supply could be had until yea is more  of development work have been done.  Here is the dispatch sent out last  Tuesday.from Grand Forks. As it  emanates from St. Paul, the home of  James J. Hill, perhaps it also means  that work on the Phoenix extention ol  the V., V. <__ E. will be undertaken in  the near future:  A report reached here today from  St. Paul, Minn., that Ameiican capitalists, after reaching an understanding  with the Great Northern railroad, have  decided to erect a thousand-ton custom smelting plain in the Kettle river  valley in the vicinity of Grand Forks.  It is said that a metallurgical expert  is now ia the Boundary distiict gathering the necessary data respecting the  character of the ores of the vaiibus  camps. It is believed that an effort will  be made to secure the total tonnage of  the Snowshoe, Brooklyn and Stemwin  er mines at Phoenix. Tbe promoters j  will alsp bid for the treatment o( the  ores of the Rep.tihl _c camp, as they  flux admirably with the sulphide ores  of the Boundary.  council (o take steps to have the licensed milk men of the city to take exlia  <aie in icgard to cleaning milk cans,  .it the season for typhoid level aiising  ��a . now coming on.

If an election is necessary, it  will be held on the 8th of September,  the city clerk being the retui ning officer.  The following accounts were ordered paid: Dominion Coppei Co., lent,  $30; Ed Forrest, $5; N. Lemieux, $39;  R. li. Kerr, $1.05; A. G. Simpson,-  $25; Graves and Williams, $60.55  Total, $160.60.

One Hotel Man of Phoenix Moving Against  Others.  Michael Kane, proprietor of the  Cottage hotel,'proposes to see that all  gambling in the city of Phoenix is put  a stop to. And thereby hangs a tale.  Mr. Kane wanted a sidewalk buili  across the First street bridge Irom his  hotel, several feet above the piesent  floor of the bridge, and got up a petition to that effect for the city council.  Others who did not wish the sidewalk  tbuilt presented a counter petition, and  he council took no action in the matter.    ' '    ' j  Tuesday Mr. Kane swoie out a warrant against T. !(. Richards, of the  Stimt\\ii hotel, charging him with conducting a gambling house. The matter came before Mayor Rumb-iger, who  adjourned it till the return of Police  Magistrate Williams, next Wednesday.  Mr. Kane asserts that he will "get  even" with those who opposed his sidewalk sch-. me, will close all. gambling  games, and that he has only just begun  to fight. The outcome is awaited with  interest.  PROVIDENCE NETS'$145 PER TON.  Satisfactory  Returns   From   Trail   Smeller  Shipment.  The Prividence mine seems to be all  that has recently been claimed for it,  according to the returns lecently received for a shipment to the ..-Trail  smelter. It consisted of 87,504 pounds  or 43%! tons, and the net ieturns were  $6,367.51, or about $145 per ton. An  average assay gives 61 ounces gold,  525 ounces silver and 11.30 per hundred weight lead. It is stated that the  shipment was made to asceitain if ii  was advisable to sort the ore, and from  the above returns such a course would  not be necessary.  William Fowler, who had a lease  and bond on the Providence, is the  largest owner. Last spring, when the  piopeity begun to show up remarkably  well, he took iu W. M. Law, J. J.  Caulfield,' W. S. Macy, J. A. Russell  and others, on a basis of $50,000 foi  the inine. Fred -Whifwell also had an  interest in the lease. ��� This shipment  is the first made since the new owners  became interested in the Providence,  and they are justified in thinking thai,  they have a good thing in it, which will  be worked for all it is worth.  A number of other claims, not fai  from the Providence, are also being developed, with encouraging showings.  Boundary Mining Notes.  From 20 to 25 cars of ore daily are  being sent out from the Granby mines,  about halt the normal rate.  The Chicago and British Columbia  Mining company, owning the Lake iu  Skylark camp, has been registered as a  Biitish Columbia company.  The Skylark, in Skylark camp, has  been recently sampled, with good results, with a view to being bonded. It  is one of the oldest high grade claims  in the Boundary. >  During July the Mother Lode mine  'shiped 44 cars, or about 1280 tons of  ore. Shipments are now being made  regularly once more, one of the big  Shay engines being used on that work.  Work on pumping out tha li. C.  mine, Summit camp, has been started,  and the force of men is being increased. Shipments or ore to the Greenwood smelter will piobal.-ly be resumed  next week.  By tonight ihe heavy framewmk of  the new Granby compressor house will  be up, some of the timbeis being 12X  14 inches and over 60 feet long. The  building will be 6;\i2o feet over all  ben completed.    Work is being ru.li  ed to get 11 enclosed during   the  weather.  g<  .Od  Monday, being the annual holiday of  Labor Day, will be observed in Phoenix by an extensive picnic hy the var-  iptis labor organizations, to be held at  the New York townsite park, on the  hill adjoining the city. All this week  the vaiious committees have been busy  preparing for the event, which prom-  I ises to be successful in eveiy way. A  ' list of sports and games, as below, has  been arranged. The Granby mines  will be closed for the day and the  Snowshoe will probably do likewise.  Lunch will be provided for all at  the park at reasonable prices, and the  dancing pavilion, 24x50, where also  the boxing and wrestling matches will  take place, will have its attractions. lithe evening a ball will take place at  Miners' Union Hall, with a supper al  midnight. Gopd music will be furnished throughput the day and evening, and the proceeds will go to Henry  Systed, who lost his sight in a Snow-  shoe mine, explosion.  The following has been arranged as  the day's  PROGRAMME.  Parade leaves.

The Nelson News  thinks the two,  per'cent ore tax  is all  right.     How  - lonely the News editor must feel, with  most ol  the interior - papers on the  other side of the question'.  Every day or so, a few writs for dam  ages are being issued against the Crow's  ,   Nest Pass Coal Co.    If it keeps  up,  there's a good chance for  that $i44i-  000,000,000 to be reduced.  Next week the International Mining  Congress will meet in annual session  at Butte, with representatives from all  over this continent. It should be pio-  ductive of good to the mining industry.  Ralph Smith, M. P., has been turned down dy the'labor leaders of his  borne town, Nanaimo. It should be  remembered, however, that Mr. Smith  was far away when the turning down  ' -was done.   Chas. M. Schwab, the wealthy piesi-  dent of the American Steel Trust, is a  physical wreck. Rockefeller, the oil  king, is another. Evidently there are  some things money will not buy, although most of us mortals are willing  to take long chances on it.  THE VOTERS LIST.  There is a good deal of misnpprehen-  .1011 in the public mind, a misapprehen  sion in which the Pioneer shared until  tecently, over the effect of ihe  meas  uies passed last   session  dealing with  the pioviiuial elections.     The  idea,  moie or less pievalent, that all existing  voteis lists will be cancelled on the last  day of August and new lisis  be coni'  menced beginning with ist of Septeni  ber is  wrong,  and  having made  the  erroneous statement in these columns  the Pioneer lusiens to correct it.  There are two acts dealing with this  question, the Redistiibuiion Act and  the Piovincial Elections Act. Section  5 of the foimcr provides that after the  coming into force ol the Act the register ��(voters shall be cancelled, the date  fixed for the coining into effect of the  act being upon the dissolution of the  piesent Legislative Assembly (Section  13) Section 6 requires every ptrson  desiring to be registered to apply to the  collecioi of voles according to Section  11 of ihe P10vinci.il Elections Act.  This lattei, me.isuie, that is to say,  the amending act passed last session,  enmes into foice on September ist as  stated in the Pioneer a week or two  ago but only applies, nnd this is important, until alter the dissolution of  the legislatuie, to those who apply alter  thai date to have their names placed  upon the register of voters.  In brief then, the lists will not be  cancelled on the 31st inst; those seeking to have their name put on the voteis list on or after Sept. isi must comply with the provisions of the amended  Provincial Elections Act; the lists as  now existing will remain in force until  tha lieutenant-governor dissolves the  legislature, and after the dissolution  everyone must re-register according to  tlie same act.

Nevertheless, those in the best position to  know believe that it is sure to risr.  after a little to 13 cents or thereabouts,  and remain in that neighborhood.  Another weekly is about to make  its bow in East Kootenay, called the  JMorrisey Miner, in the new town of  the same name. I''. E. Simpson, of the  Cranbrook Herald is behind it, and  if he makes as good a paper in Moirisey  as he does in Cr.iribrook, residents of  the coal town are to be congratulated.  If Col. Prior is successful in per  suading the government to make half  the improvements that he has promised)  in express or implied terms, on his recent trip through the mining districts,  wherever he stopped long enough to  listen to a delegation, it will be a great  thing for this section. It may cost a  few dollars, but it will be a splendid  investment for the government  Hon. E. G. Prior, minister of mines,  while in Phoenix told the editor of the  Pioneer that he was in favor of party  iines in piovincial politics. While in  Cranbrook the same gentleman told the  editor of The Herald that he was not in  favor of party lines. Is it the difference  in altitude or association that causes  this divergent expression of opinion on  an important subject? ��� Cranbrook  Herald.  It's now up to the gallant colonel to  explain how this is thus.  Some Here���The is no trouth in  the minor that the editor ot this paper  has fallen heir to a million dollars.

Chinese servants in Vancouver have  foimed a union.  The C. P. R. will build a new roundhouse at Vancouver.  The new creamery at Armstrong is  teady to siart operations.  James J. Hill states that Elko, in  East Kootenay, is an ideal site for a  smelter.  Citizens of Ymir do not like the new  train seivice. It is a mixed blessing  in disguise.  The C. P. R. intends to continue  their Trout Lake telegraph line through  to Kaslo.  Kaslo has a revenue of $5200 a year  from its water supply, and has reduced  the debt to $14,600.  Nelson's tourist association is to send  out a man on the main line to sing the  beauties of the Kootenays.  In thiee years the Nelson Electric  Tramway Co. lost over $43,090 in the  operation of its street railway.

The St. Eugene mine is dosing t:M  the lead maiket improves.    ���  18 inches of high-grade ore has been  struck in the Dardanelles.  The Cariboo returns this season far  exceed any of recent years.  In the Lardeau the Nettie I- is'putting in a compressor and the Triune a  rope tramway.  Rossland mines shipped 6,590 tons  last week, making over 200,000 tons  thus far this year.  An impoitant strike of ore was recently made on the Silver Hill mine,  back of Pilot Bay.  Ferguson's small smelter is expected  to run on Triune ore continuously  from September ist.  For the tenth time it is asserted that  the Marysville smelter will be completed and blown in this fall.  Over 10,060 tons of Slocan ore have  been shipped through Kaslo this year,  Last week the record was 290 tons.  A $43,000 gold brick has been received at the Dominion Assay office,  Vancouver, from the Cariboo Consolidated.  The Mountain Consolidated, near  Kaslo, is reported to have stiuck a rich  vein of carbonate ore assaying 1,019  ounces of silver to the ton.  The following Slocan mines are worb  ing with forces on their payiolls as  follows: Slocan Star, 25 men; Ruth,  40; Payne, 60; Ivanlioe, 10; Last  Chance, 25; Noble Five, 10; Trade  Dollar, 10; American Boy, 30; Mountain Con, 4; Rambler 100.  The July returr.s from the Ymir mine  show that 50 stamps were in opeiation  675 hours and the estimated profits  amounted to $6850, besides development and repairs. This brings the total  net piofit made at the mine during the  first half of the present yearto $52,535.

Secy,  One of the hest ways to learn how  to do good advei rising is to read good  advertisements and follow their good  lessons. , ,  "Lest we' be forgotten" is an excellent motto for men in trade. It suggests the duty of persistence in adver-  'rising! "The'memory of the public is  very short.  Make hay while the sun shines, but  remember that you must have the grass  plot first. Advertising is the grass plot  of your business and the haymaking  may be continued even when the moon  shines.  "Be instant in season and out of season" is a motto worthy of any man who  advertises. In the dull season one  who has things to sell has need of all  the trade he can get. Like the sun,  the advertisement should be seen every  day in the year.  Advertising, like a knife, is not a  luxury, but an absolute essential. Like  a knife it has to have a well-tempered  edge or the result will be somewhat exhausting. The man who denounces all  knives because he happened to buy a  blunt one, or the boy who denounces  them because he cuts his finger with a  sharp one, would be regarded as veiy  peculiar persons.

Last Saturday evening an 'ajjgrrga-  'i��'ii ol three called the Anthony l.lac-  Oddity'Co., held forth at Hardy-Mr-  Kenzies hall. The Old Jackdaw is in-  formed that the audience consisted 01  exactly twelve boys and four adults���  these and no more. The colored  artists (?) did their best to give sotn.  sortol an entertainment, but it was  pretty up hill work, even for a 'barnstorming company to get up enthusiasm  in an empty house.  A good show; properly advertised,  always gets a good audience in Phoe-  hix, but a poor outfit, with little or no  adveiUsing, stands a small chance ol  getting tnougli to pay their board, in  this or any other western town. There  is a little moral in the above tale, and  it is sti plain that he who walks or runs  may read, Those who cater, to the  public should see that they utilize the  best means existing���the press���'.0  make the public thoroughly aware 61  their presence. Otherwise they rue  likely to get pretty slim pickings from  the dear public, who, as P. T. Barnum  is /reported to have said, may like to  be humbugged, but do not like it ii  they know it.  A story is leaking out about Eugene  Shea and his recent trip back cast t.<  see his parents in New York state  While in Montreal, it seem?, Mi .'Shea  was taking in all the sights available  one day, aud he was so interested thai  he did iiot see a vehicle approaching,  which after it. had actually run ovei  and knocked him down and rolled him  in the dust of Canada's chief city,  proved to be nothing else than an  automobile. Fortunately, no serious  damage was done, and the genial pro-  pi ietor of the Belle, ue was able shortly  to resume his journey to the chief mining town of the Boundary, where the  whirr of the automobile is as yet unknown.  ������������  More than once, the Old Jackdaw  has heard it stated among newspaper  men that it is exceedingly hard for  them to keep away from printer's ink,  if they once get a good smell of it.  This is illustrated by the successful attempt of John Houston,-of Nelson, to  break into the journalistic arena once  more, when his friends thought he had  had enough of the game.  M.  It is also said that Frank. H. McCarter, Sr., is once more figuring on  starting a paper at Grand Forks. Mr.  McCarter was the founder cf the Grand  Forks Miner, which he later amalgamated with the Gazette of the same  place, having purchased the latter.  Then the News was started there by  Ii. I). Hall, who after buying the Gazette and consolidating the two as the  News-Gazette, sold out his interests  and is now in Washington, D. C.  Should Mr. McCarter enter the field  again in Grand Forks, it is needless to  say that there would be warm times  once more in that place. Since leaving this section last spring, Mr. McCarter has been down in Oregon, but  evidently thinks that there are worse  places to do business in than the Boundary.  The Old Jackdaw;  It is hot definitely known whether construction work will be resumed at this  nd j: st now, although there seems to  ;e a probability that a considerable  i' rtioh of the line up the Fraser river,  valley will be built before the end." of  this year. The Coast-Kootenay road  will open up a region abounding in coal,  mineial and agricultural resources,' especially in the Siinilkameen district.  /.a Important Notice.  The last issue of the B. C. Gazette  ���1 xitained the following:  "Notice is hereby given that under  die provisions of section 143 of the  Mineral Act,;his honor the lieutenant  governor in council lias been pleased  10 rescind, theorderof the 15th of May,  iy_2, published in the Biitish Columbia Gazette of the same date, with regard to the interpretation to be placed  upon paragraph 2 ol section 5 of the  Mineral Act Amendment Act, 1898,  and 'o make the following order in lieu  thereof, namely:���That paragraph 2-0!  section 5 of Mineral Act Amendment  Act, 1898, be so interpreted that,  should any free miner perl'oim assessment work 011 his claim' during any  one year to the value of one hundred  dollars or more in excess of the amount  requited"to be done in , any one year  by the Mineral Act, the light thereby  given such free miner of recording a  certificate of work done to the value of  each one hundred dollars, so as to  cover his assessment work for an additional year in respect of each one  hundred dollars in excess! shall be exercisable only during the year in which  such excess shall be performed.- And  it is further ordered that this order shall  take effect from the (list day of June,  1902.', '.'���'.  Slicking Talent.  One of the most important elements  in success is,the quality of persistence,  that which enables a mail to hold on  when everybody else lias,lost faith and  courage. It is this j.eljment in the  racehorse which enables':!.him ,'to win,  because he keeps up a little longer  ���han the others, who have become  winded and are obliged to drop out of  the race. This holding on quality is  characteristic of the successful man.  When everybody else has lost faith,  has given up, or has fallen to the rear,  he still persists forging ahead. It is  the one neck nearer that wins the race.  ��� rht_..rft_rf7_rfi .rf7.rfr_rfz.ife rf__rfz_rfz.rf_ ���  <  it  ���j Painters��ndDecorators  : Indoor   and   Outdoor  Work  -; Promptly Done with pure lead  . and oil.

Great Northern's Still Plans to Connect Coast  and Koolcnuv  A dispatch from Grand Forks last  Saturday states that it is understood  that the Great Northern railway will  shortly send parties into the field with  ��� he object of making a reconnaissance  of that portion of the Coast-Kootenay  route lying between Vancouver via the  proposed New Westminster bridge and  the Hope Mountains district, as .1 pre  liniinary to undertaking the location  survey. The recent speech delivered  here by President J. J. Hill would appear to possess even more significance  lhan was ascribed to his utterances at  the time, when he declared that the  surveys would soon be accomplished  and that, bonus or no bonus, he was  prepaired to build the road from the  coast and the interior simultaneously.  The preliminary survey from the  coast terminus will probably be started  within a few weeks. The work, it is  reported, will be under the direction of  James H. Kennedy, chief engineer of  the V., V. & E. Mr. Kennedy had  charge of the engineering work in connection with the building of the eastern section of the V., V. :& E., that  forms a link between Cascade, B. C,  and Carson, B. C.j in Mr. Hill's  through line to Republic, opened for  traffic a few days ago.  That portion of the proposed line  irom Midway, B.

"I would administer the sacrament," replied the  student, who, by the -way, Is said to be  studying for the .ministry, and takes  chemistry because It Is obligatory.  It Is reported;that Innocent"IV..'and  Thomas Aquinas were standing together as the bags of treasure were  being carried: In ��� through the gates of.  the Lateran. "You s.j," observed the  Pope, with a ,8mlle, "the day is post  when the Church could say, "Silver and  gold have I none.'" "Yes, holy father,"  was the saint's reply, "and, the day la  past also when the Church could say to  the lame trian, 'Rise and walk.'"  .-'��� W. J. Bryan told a good story at hla  own expense in New York recently: "I  spoke during the campaign In a little  Illinois town.: In front of me sat a  man rigidly attentive. He drank In  every word I said; I think he had  drunk in something else besides. When  I finished he came up and wrung my  hand. 'Mr. Bryan,' he said, 'you are  wonderful, wonderful. You are the  first man I ever saw whose.back teeth  I could see all the time he wus speaking.'" ���  ' :.���<-  President Roosevelt Is fond of telling  any stoiy at his own expense. That  which he enjoys most is the following:  Former Governor Wise had told the  President that It was the general opinion, so far as he-had heard, that he'  would go down to posterity as a Washington. The President replied that ho  was delighted to hear that. "But."  added Wise, In 1 a serious manner,  ���'whether it will be as a George or ft  Booker T. 1 don't know." The President lo said to have laughed so A'ss.r-  tlly over "this that Wise became  alarmed.  Dr. Rlxey, who for some years wai  the private physician In the McKinley  household, says that when the late  President's mother sat down for the  first time to a White. House dinner  what seemed to impress her most was  the prodigal supply of cream. She^  commented on Its abundance, and then  added: "Well, William, at last I know  What they mean when they speak of  the Cream of Society." The President  laughed.. "I admit," said he, "that  there seems to be an extravagant array of cream on the table, but you  know, mother, we cajn afford to keep ��  cow, now."'  An amusing story Is being told of Sir  Henrjr Howorth, who, besides being tht  author of many scientific works, has  written an elaborate historical book entitled "History of the Mongols." It  seems that the other day Sir Henry  found himself at a dinner party next  to a lady who determinedly talked  ;dogs to him from the soup to tht  dessert. Rather bored. Sir Henry a'  last remarked that though his friend/  somewhat unkindly declared that he  could chatter on any subject, he was  obliged to own that he was utterly a>  sea on the topic of dogs. The lady  looked astounded. "Why, are you not  Sir Henry Howorth? I understood  from our host that you were the author of a learned book on Mongrels,  and I was so delighted, as I am s.  . interested in all kinds of dogs."  A story is told of a certain English  bishop well known for his verbosity  who rose to address the House ot  Lords on a very important occasion, "t  will divide my speech under twelve  heads," he said, to the discomfort ol  his audience. The Marquis of Sails-  bury beggedto be'allowed to Interpose  with a little anecdote. "A friend bt  mine was returning home late one J  night," he said, "when opposite St. j  Paul's he saw an intoxicated man try- |  ing to ascertain the time on the big  clock there. Just then It began to  strike and slowly tolled out twelve.  The man listened, looked hard at the  clock and said, 'Confound you, 'why  couldn't you have said that all at  once?' " The bishop heartily joined in  the laughter which followed, and took  the hint contained In the story.  Dr. John Kerr, the well-known Scottish school Inspector, was once faced  in a Banffshire manse by this question  put to him by the lady of the house on  behalf of her inquisitive son. "Mr.  Kerr, Is it true that the devil goes  about like a roaring Hon?" "It must  be true," he replied, "for it is in the  Bible." A shrill voice came from tho  corner: "Then wha keeps his fire In  when he's gaun aboot?" Dr. Kerr also  tells ah anecdote of a woman who had  Just lost her husband, and the minister  calling to condole with her found her  sitting In front of a large bowl of  porridge. "Terrible loss, terrible loss,"  sighed the minister. "Aye," was the  reply, "it's a terrible loss to me. I've  just been greetin' a' nlcht, and as sune  as I finish this wee drap porridgj, I'm  Just gaun to begin again."  A Real Help.  The Woman's Aid Society In New  York has done great work in helping  the poor. Like all charitable organizations. It has to contend with ingratitude, stupidity, and wilful Improvidence. The "Commercial Advertiser"  relates one Instance that Is amusing to  read of. but must have been a trifle  discouraging to the society.  To a poor woman whose husband  was In Jail they gave some clothing  and ten. dollars In money, thlnklrij- that  she would know best what she wanted,  and so spend the money more wisely  than they.  A week after the gift had been made  a deputation of members called at the  squalid home to see the results of their  assistance. They found no Improvement In the condition of the family.  "Well, Mrs. Nolan," asked one of  them, "how are you getting along?"  "Fine," said Mrs.. Nolan.  "Did the clothes fit, and did you find  a use for the money?"  "Sure, the clothes fitted fine, an' the  chtlder looked so nice I had all their  pictures took wld the money ye gave  me, an' I'm going to have me own  took this week to send to the old folks  in Ireland."  Money and Dreams*  He settled himself In his roomy chair  In his big, old house, where be ted  lived so long that the city had grown  up away and, beyond him,, leaving  the house, which had been In ft  fashionable neighborhood, so ��� tax  down town that there Was tittle  ! more than the hum of business to  be heard all day around It. The old  mail's housekeeper brought hlin a sool  j drink, and one of his nephews came  in to enquire how he had stood the  unusual heat of the day.  He had so many nephews and niece*  to look after his comfort. Some even  stayed In town all summer to be near  him. When they tried, to persoiade hlro  to go away for a little rest in the hot  weather lie would say: :'  "Rest! Who wants rest? If you let  money rest It rusts���rusts!' Turn.lt  over, keep turning it over; It grows. It  grows!" And he would add that the  summer was the best time of all for  work. ,The old financier was the possessor of many millions. But he walked  alone. This evening he sat in the twilight which settled itself hot and thick  about him. The night was bringing no  .'cooling breath. The roar of the metro-  polls was dying away In ' tired sobs  outside The city's life seemed sapped  with the heat. Even the old man, who  never stopped his work for anythlug,  realized that it was unusually hot tonight. He fanned himself with his  newspaper and took a sip from the  glass whioh stood near him on the table.  He closed,,his eyes. He felt such a  strange sense of oppression. , No, he  was not dizzy., It had passed. He  opened his eyes and put up his hand to  unfasten his collar, At his neck he  touched a twisted cord of silk that was  around It., He pulled at the cord and  drew out Its length. From It hung a  ring���a silver ring���old-fashioned and  worn, and on It two, raised hearts lying against each other and rubbed  smooth by time.  '_ He sat now with his eyes closed  again and his hand folded over tho  ring on his breast. He dreamed once  more, and It was his last dream. It  was Bummer���yes���but It was nearly  fifty years ago. The dust and roar of  the city gave way to the scent and  quiet of an old garden; the heat to the  dew of a country evening. Its breejS-  llghtly moving the leaves of the trees  and fluttering the ruffles of a girl'*-  muslin frock, with its pattern of summer blossoms upon It.  A boy���such a boyish country boy���  took the silver ring; then new and  shining, from his pocket and put it on  the hand of the girl in the flowered  muslin frock. Then they kissed each  other, and the girl fell to sobbing, with  her arms about her companion's neck,  and he spoke:  "Never mind, dear; Annie, dear. I  am going away to make a fortune, and  I'm coming back for you, and we 'will  be married, and I will take you away  to the city, and you will be rich and  have everything you want."  "But I don't like the city. I should  be so afraid and so confused, and yau  might not love me there as you do  now here In the country. People in  the city forget each other so."  "No, they don't; not If they really  love each other, and I love you.' Nothing can ever make me forget you. See,  not as long as evening comes after the  day and the stars come with It."  They kissed each other again.    '������'  The ring came, back to him in a! letter with a flower from Annie's grave.':  Never once did he go to seek the  grave to rest by it a moment. Work  became his love and gold the star that  guided him.  Now he clasped the silver ring tighter, tighter. By and by he gasped and  fell forward. His clasp relaxed; he  sighed once, a deep sigh, then lay there  quite still. And later they .found htm  so.���Margaret Klein in the New York  "Herald."

The editor of the Grapevine "Telegraph," after spending six year*  without a break, in the editorial  harness, felt himself entitled to a vacation, and went away to the mountains  for'a month's hunting and fishing,  leaving his wife in charge of the paper.  On his return he was astonished to  find his office overflowing with potatoes. Everything that could be turned  Into a receptacle was filled with them.  Each pigeonhole In his desk contained  a potato. The drawer of his editorial  table was bursting with potatoes. Old  ink-kegs, lined with papers, were filled  and heaped with them. There wer.  potatoes In the coal-bucket, In the ash-  pan, and even In the stove itself.  They were no small potatoes, either.  Every one of them was as big as his  fist, and some were,as big as two fists.  The collection would have taken a premium at a county fair.  "Lucy," he said, after the greetings  were over, "what does all this mean?"  "Oh," she almost sobbed, "I wanted  to do something original, and so I announced, In the first number of the  paper I printed after you went  away, that the 'Telegraph' would  be sent for one year to the person sending us the largest potato raised in this county, for six  months to the person sending the next  largest, and for three months to the  one sending the third largest. The potatoes began coming in right away,  and they've been coming ever since.  Some persons, I am afraid, have tried  to get all three of the prizes. I have  begged the people not to send any  more, and I do believe they are doing  !t now for a joke. V/e can't announce  any prizes till they quit coming, and  there are some boys In the other room  with their pockets bulging with thorn  right now, and���Oh. Cyrus, what, shall  we do?"  "Do?" said tbe editor, with a grin on  his* face. "Do? The right thing to do  would be for me to go away for anotn-  er month and let you continue to edit  the paper. Potatoes are worth a dollar a bushel, and you have got enough  of them here to pay all the expenses  of my trip, and all they cost us is a  dollar and seventy-five cents' worth of  'Telegraph.'
