A   force  of 20 men' is  | working in retimberiiig No.  5 level,  where they are stoping ore from the  old workings.     A   blacksmith  shop  and  timber shed are  being   erected j  at the portal of No. 6 tunnel, which  is now in   50   feet, and   in   which a  contract.is   soon   to   be   let   for the  driving of Ibis tunnel   2,000  feet to  catch   the   vein.     The ' compressor, )  flumes and pipe lines  have  received  .i.thorough overhauling and are now  in readiness for the starting of work  by machines as soon   as   bedrock is  reached.  J. M. l/.-irn's of the Reco mine al  Sandon has on exhibition.a six-inch  cube of galena. lie is asking all to  guess as to the weight of the cube.  Some are guessing by lifting the  cube, and others by figuring on the  measurement, but as yet no one has  come .anywhere-, near the weight.  The cube of.ore came from ihe Reco  mines and the place from which it  was taken bas a face of two feet of  the same kind of ore which assays  ISO ounces in silver to the ton. A  car of ore is now sacked and ready  for'shipment and the- trail is being  shovelled to begin raw-hiding.���-  Nelson News.  L. M. Bower lias just returned to  ���Ashcrbft after a six months' absence  exactly ball" a year having been occupied in taking in seven Ions of  supplies to a party engaged in surveying coal lands at .Rocky .Mountain portage. This.is the first consignment that lias yet gone into the  Peace River country from the Coast  via'the British Columbia   route��� -bv  I  in development.  J. W. D. Mooclie, M.L.,   of New  Voile, bas arrived here, says a coast  exchange,    to succeed   Robert   W.  Leach   as .general   manager  of the  Britannia   mjiie   on   Howe   Sound.  Mr. Leach is  leaving  here for California.     During his  administration  the mine   has   been   extensively developed and now has over four Inin-  ! dreil men   on its   payroll,  easily the  largest   number  employed    in    any  mine between  here and Alaska,     It  is said that as a result of successful  .diamond-drilling and subsequent development, over one   million tons of  ore of higher grade than any hitherto   encountered   has    been   blocked  j out.    The concentrator at the beach  is running .day   and night and  oyer  nine thousand   Ions   of concentrates  are  being shipped monthly  to   tbe  Tacorna      smelter.       Hon.     Edgar  j Devvdney  'of'Victoria; who is financially   interested   in   the    company,  .was in   town yesterday  on business  in ���'connection   with   the   change   of  management.     .Mr.   Leach   made a  splendid reputation  during   his connect ion with the property.'  Coal has been known, to exist on  Queen Charlotte Islands for the  past thirty years, says- the Queen  Charlotte News. It was discovered  in 1S59 by William Downie, and explored in 1S85 by \V. A. Isohertson,  hut little development work bas  been done until within the last six  months. At tbe present time, bow-  ever, there are three diamond drills  in operation-���one in the townsite  of Queen Charlotte. Two of tbe  drills are in' operation ;within nine  miles of Queen Charlotte City. A  notable"feature''with refeVence to tbe  Queen Charlotte anthracite coal is  that it carries'&i .high percentage of  fixed carbon find is-, positively  smokeless coal. In addition to tbe  resources mentioned, large deposits  of iron ore are known to exist on  what  is   known   as   Louise   Island;  Work at   Midden   Creek  is  suing the even tenor of its .way,  cording to. the  pur-  ac-  statement   of O. B.  Smith,   gen.   supt.   of  the  G ran by  Consolidated, who  has  recently returned   from one   of his  periodical]  trips   to   that   promising  property.  Tbe general scheme of development  outlined some   months ago  is being  rigorously followed; diamond drilling, inine development by drifts and  crosscuts, erection  and  fitting up of  buildings and   the  construction of a  dam being  the  chief programme at  present.     A number of men are also  engaged   on    the    large    tramway,  while the splendid ..smelter site   has  been cleared.     Mr. Smith expressed  his   satisfaction    at   the    progress  made since  his  former trip and declared   bis   faith  in   the   new enterprise.      "The mine is in lirst-class  shape,"he said.     Questioned  as to  tbe date   for  reopening the Granby  mines here  in  Phoenix,. Mr.  Smith  stated that next week,   100   tons of  coke from   the. Crow's-Nest   would  arrive at   the.smelter,which   would  be   increased   by 100   and 200 tons  respectively the two foi lowing weeks.  The mine'would start a week or ten  days before  the   smelter was   blown  in,   and then only   on  a small scale,  until   the   full complement of  coke  was  assured.

Aside from mere appearances a famous Kuglisli doctor declares that stylish clothes area  powerful mental and moral Ionic,'and that a man in shabby atlire has the  odds decidedly against him.  The prestige that a well-tailored appearance gives in both, business  and society is well worth all it costs, particularly since the highest perfection of line'tailoring is now within easy reach of modest means. > Look  prosperous and yon will be more likely to be prosperous. Proper clothing makes you look good, feel good and make good. With that fact before you, bow much will your appearance this Fall add to your chances  of success ?

The enterprise of  this  company has   not   only  opened  the eyes of those interested in B, C.  mining, but has considerably broadened the   mining possibilities  of the  Boundary   and   other   parts   ot   the  province      where      that    particular  geological formation exists.

"Shall you publish your dictionary  and seek to have it iurroduced into  schools?" asked Mrs. Bowser after a  long silence, during which Mr. Bowser  dropped the cat to the floor 'and gave  her n hoist with his foot  "Certainly. There has long been a  demand for such a work, and It is  growing every day. See what nonsense.  In the good old days we spelled It  w-a-g-g-o-u, and It was so pronounced.

The  druggist had ten minutes to spare,  and he listened patiently to Mr. Bowser's dictionary si-heme and the radical changes proposed. >Vheu the story  had been told he quietly-said:  "There is one word I hope you won't  think of changing. ,lf you do I shall  not know how to think of you. It's, a  little word of three letters, but it  means much. You are it and It 1=  you."  It was three days before Mr. Bowser caught on.

Among the astonishing discoveries  dun have recently been made '>.v  means of the delicate iuMrumeius contrived primarily for the investIgation  of ciirlliipiakes none Is more surprls  Ing than that of the existence of vast  quiverings of the earth's crust which  affect Jens of, thousands of square  miles of surface and sometimes continue for weeks.on end. These strange  pulsations, which are called "micro-,  seisms," are due, incredible though II  may seem, to nothing else than the  varvlng pressure of the nlr!  Who could have believed that the  seemingly solid globe could be llius  tmaketi by the soft tread of the Invisible powers of the atmosphere?  But the mystery Is deepened by (be  fact, which stands out clearly from the  investigations of Dr. Olto .Klutz, lliat  ihe ocean plays a .master part In. the.  phenomenon. When an area of low  imroinen-le pressure passes across tlie  Lulled States no uilcroselsnis are produced as long as the cyi'liine remains  distinctly over the continent, but when  it rushes out upon the surface of the  ocean the needles or the seismographs  begin to tremble.

How   'Varsity   Students   Are   Trained  to Make a Noise.  Although it has existed in other  universities for many years, organized rooting was first put. on a permanent bn."=is at the University of Toronto  in 1900. That year George DavuUon  was appointed yell leader for Arts,  and <imis Johnstone for the School  of Science. Though the songster did  not hold any practices these fellow?  hud the nerve to get out on the track  and attempt to keep the boys singing  in unison. The results were sometimes really remaikuble, and the effect often more humorous tham harmonious.  Then toward the end ot tlie season  a young man named Billy Cnrlyle  came into the lime light. Ginis Johnstone found his duties "too much for  one man," and Carlyle came.' to the  rescue.  He of the liternry cognomen lound  the work congenial. The following  year he, was chief assistant rooter.  'Varsity won the Intercollegiate, honors, and the first real attempt* to  .make the rooting a Jeaturo was attempted.  Last year at Roscdale, when  'Varsity put a most decided crimp into the  Interproviaeial     Union's    pride,    the  rooting under  the" leadership  of Car  lyle,   was   a   feature,   and   the   stage  effects, such as the human T-O-R-O-N-  T-O, wero first-introduced.  7 This   year   Mr.   Carlyle   agatn. took  charge.,, and   to   his   credit   must   b.-  charged  the; splendid  effects and  or.  gnuisell   rooting   which   have' marked,  tho whole season/   This has truly been  a grand fall for tho oflicial noisy pro  Queers. .���':.- "  "Now, if you'll just notice, you'll  see how perfectly we have them trained," 'and he put the mob"Lirougii  "It's'"moving day to day in Jungle  Town."

With the growth of mechanical transport tbe necessity of taking  steps to secure a supply of horses in  war grows more, and more urgent. We  can riot, unfortunately, mount our cav-  alry-on taxicabs.

The game of football is said to have  originated with the early Celtic, inhabitants of England. It is certam-  i ly as' old as the Christian era. The  game was immensely popular all  through the middle ages and appears  to have been from the start the same  dangerous thing that it is to-day., It  was repeatedly censured and opposed  by the authorities, and an attempt  at its sunpression was made under  Henry IV..

Revived  about the beginning of '.he eighteenth  century, it has since then steadily  grown in popularity und is to-day one  of the most popular of English and  American   sports.

Where  Phrases  the now  famous  Knnpp Roller Bout, j blood and pr.ssps it into the intestines  It was '�� novel Hen, to have a boat  so constructed that no matter how  high the waves mieht dash, the inner  compartments of the boat would ro-  mniri stationery, being swung on an  axle which ran.the full length of the  ship. . ,.  In shape, it wns not unlike nn  airship, but was constructed of sheet-  iron. ���  The boat set out one day on her  trial trip and just by way of showing  her independence was wrecked n  short distance out of the harbor.  Since that time sho has been on the  go.  -  Her first trip, after being tied up  for repairs wn?, down to ; the bottom"  of the-buy near Pol son's Iron Works.  There she lay for some venrs. while  the soft, gooey mud gradually covered  her iron  sides.  Then  one  (lav   It    wns    decided    to  raise   her   nnd   the  n'?iirr��otion   took  place  snecessfullv,  the   hull   still   being intact.    It   was   thought   that   it  might  be  put  to use as  a  ennl   boat,  but    as    arnrihibious    captains    and  crews   arc   extinct   something   had   to  be done  to  stop   l.er   rolling   habits.  Therefore  large qiinnt'ties of cement,  weighing hundreds of tons, were forced clown  into the lowermost portions  of   her  interior   economy   ns   ballast.  Men  went  down   into the  rusty  hold  with  steel   scraners   and    for  months  were busv removing the corrosion an!  getting   things   looking   ns  ship-shape  ns  it was    possible to   mnke  such    a  creation.    The work  had the effect of  awakening    the    wanderlust     of    the  cralt.   The years snent in the solitude  of the bottom of the bay had produced  a  desire  for company nnd 'in.the  winter of ,1906 the  opportunity came  one  night  in   the  shape  of  a   violent  storm.    The cables  were  broken   and  in the darkness of early morning off  she    started    to    do    some    visiting.  Straight down   th��  bay sh"  went toward the. west, taking in. nil the local  improvements    nnd    nosing    her  way  quietly, along the wnterfront.  Finally,  sin .'spotted, the Turbinia  nnd 'with a  forward   lurch   made  straight  for  the  trim  craft.    Gentleness had  not been  included.in her. rollers and the meeting  was . so- rough, that .the  Turbinia  was    badly'damaged    rind    that 'cut  short  the   adventure,  for  the  hoodoo  was towed  back and tied up again.  The next journey was a little  pleasure jaunt over to Fisherman's  Island; where after vainly trying to  crawl up the shore she gave up the  attempt and quietly submitted to.being : again taken back and tied up.  There she; is yet, rusting her heart  out in the'sorrow of a blighted career  hoodooed at every stage arid good for  nothing much   but the scrap  heap.  The iron alone in the original con-,  struetion cost over $10,000. and since  that time Mr. Laurie, the financial  agent, claims the boat has run. up a  bill of costs of .$30,000.

Who first gave utterance to Borne  of the popular phrases of to-day it is  practically impossible to suy, but it'  is not so difficult to-trace the origin  of the sayings. Cheshire cats, for  instance, are no different from those  of other counties, but because Cho-  ���mire cheeses used to be made in tha  ���>*TnpM of cats with fixed, broad grins,  the phrase. "Grinning like a Chesh.ra  cat eating cheese," arose. ...  The phrase, "He's a brick," ori-;in-  'ited from an eastern rul -r, who. whili>  visiting Spartn, asked his host to show  him the fortifications. Waving'bin  hands toward his troops, which"were  drawn up in soldierly array, the Lace-  daimonian said to his guest: "Thes.;  are my fortifications; every man is a  brick."  The phrase, "Mad as a hatter,"  really means as venomous as a viper, ":Viad as a hatter" is simply a'  corruption of an ancient firm. "Mud  as an utter, or adder." Mad in thi-*  case is generally synonymous with  poisonous.  The clause "It suits to a T." riio-in-  ing it fits exactly, is as old as the  familiar instrument, the T-square, or  T-ruIe (so culled from its resemblance  lo the V>tter T). us��d by mechanic?  and draughtsmen for making angles  true and lor obtaining perpendiculars  The expression was in common usi.  in the time of Dr. Johnson, wh-i i,-  quoted by Boswell as saying of War  burton, "You sea they have lilted him  to a  T."

The word "dam." however  when us-d with "I don't care," is not  in the least profane, and is equivalent  to saying, "1 don't cure two ee>,ts.'  The dnm is a two-cent pi.ee current  in India, nnd this phrase is of lnliaii  origin, and whs originally used to c-o-i  vey the idea Hint the user was u t rl\  indifferent. "1 don't care a brass but  ton" or "I don't care a ce.it" ar��  equivalent  expressions.  There are two accounts of the origin  of the ex^re.-.sion "Mind your P's and  Q's."   According to oil', it arose from  'he   early    method    us-d    in    pub'ic  houses of charging customers  for  th-  amount of b-.'Or t.ioy had consume-1 on  credit.    P stood for pint.

It  shows a very liberal margin of profit  over tiie amount requiiuu for dividends. Jn fuct, the bank earned at  tiie rr.te'of 14 per cent, on the average paid-up capital, and as a result  of the satisfactory earnings increased their dividend from 7 to 8 per  cent.' Tlie net profits for the year,  after deduet.ng expenses of manage-:  ment, intur;;st due depositors,' etc.,  etc., iimountcd to $451,020. During  tiie year $800,000 of new stock was  issued at u premium of 25 per cent.,  amounting to $*J00,8I0. These Uo  sums, together with the balance' at  the crec.it of account on November  30, 19(9, amounting to $28,000, made  a total of $H40,107 available for distribution. This was apportioned as  follows:  Three quarterly dividends at the  rate of \X per cent, and one at the  rate of 2 per cent., a total of $500,000  t.unsfi'i-red to the rsst account, this  sum being mude up of premiums on  new slock and $140,000 from the ordinary earn.iigs; the sum of $10,000  transferred to officers' pens'on fund,  leaving a balance of $80,000 to be carried 'forward. The paid-up capital  now amounts to $4,000,000, being in-  crnasoJ by $800,000 during the year  and ,the rest account now st.ind.s at  $2,400,000, be.'ng also largely increased during the same period.  An exarr.iiia'ion of the statement  shows that the deposits not bearing  interest amount to almost $15,000,000  having increased by over $3,000,000  (luring the year. This increase in  the deposits not bearing interest indicates an increased capacity for profit earning on the part of the bank.  The statement shows the bank to be  particularly strong in cash reserves  in gold and Dominion notes, vhich  amount to nearly 1.3 per cent, of the  total liabilities, and also that the assets immediately availabla, including  stocks, debentures and call loans, are  very ner.rly $15,000,000, or over 37  per cent, of the total liabilities.

Canada's trade with France to-day  is nearly double what it was ten years  ago. Imports from France amounted  to $5,500,000 in 1901. and total $10.-  170.000 to-dav. Exports have increased from $1.5SO.O0O to $2,G40.000. What  Canada sells to France may be covered  in   three  principal  articles:  Fish, mainly canned lobster, about  $1,000,000; agricultural implements  and minerals, $032,000; and bread-  stuffs, $337,000.... Caiiiida buys from  Franco various kinds of dainty dress  goods. France is famed for its gloves,  and Canada bought $556,009 worth of  these from Franco last year. Paris  is the arbiter of fashion for tho world,  and fancy goods were imported,  chiefly for use in millinery, to the  vrtlueof $478,500. France is noted for 1  ius perfumes and soaps, and Canada ;  imported about an equal amount c�� :  each���$133,000 worth of perfumery !  and $137,000 worth of soap. A very ]  large trade is also done with France !  in spirits and wines. Lust year's im- j  norts of these  were over $1,417,000.

That odd-looking bird, the nightjar, nnikes no nest, but, choosing some  hollow on the bare ground sheltered  by bracken, there lays its two mottled, lead-colored eggs. Game birds  mostly have no nests, and lay their  eggs in a hollow on the ground. None  of the plover family take much trouble about nest-building. The stone  curlew, or Ncrfolk plover, neglects  even the few bents which the plover  generally places below her eggs. That  rare member of the plover family, the  dotterel, lays its four pear-shaped  eggs in a depression of the sand or  shingle on the summit of a hill or  mountain.

John Dixon, the engineer  sent down by George Stephenson,  made a surviy and chose an easy  route through Biean. The Canterbury  committee was then called to consider his plans, "what! no tunnel?"  asked one of these intelligent men.  "No sir." said Dixon; "I am pleased  to say no tunnelling is necessary, and  the line is practically level." "Oh,"  snid some of the others, "we must  have a tunnel." They insisted, and  Stephenson journeyed to Canterbury  to choose a route with u nice tunnel  in  it.    There  was. of course,  no difta-  and  the  site  for  a tunnel  was  at  Tvler   Hill.

ORDER A CASE TODAY  'PHONE  23  PHOENIX BREWING ���0.,  LIMITED  British Columbia Year Book  The Provincial Government, yielding lo an insistent demand for the  publication of a new edition of tlie  llritish Columbia Year, Hook, the  last number of which appeared in  PJ03, have now issued what was  originally intended to be a Coronation' edition.'' . The 'work,, of. which  K. K. C'iosnell, late librarian of the  Legislative Assembly, is the author,  is beautifully illustrated and printed,  and those fortunate enough'to possess a copy will find in ii a veritable  mine of provincial information. To  say that the book fills a long fell  want is inadcqtilc, for after a reference to its pages ihe reader, lie lie  student7or��� man of business, will be  swift to pronounce the work not. only  an'absolute necessity, but another  example of the thorough and wholehearted' methods that have characterized the present regime at Victoria. Photo-engravings of their  .Majesties the King and Queen adorn  the work, while portraits of his  Honor tlie Lieutenant-Governor and  other notables, both past and present, who have contributed their  share towards the upbuilding of this,  Canada's 'fairest province, are a  striking feature of the book. Prefaced by an historical review, and in-  intensely interesting, are Ihe Dales in  Our History, necessarily, of course,  bound up with the history and settlement ofthe Pacific coast as far;  north as Russian'Alaska and southward to Panama. .Considerable  space in tbe weirk is reserved for  Mines and Minerals; under this clt'p-  tion we note a reference to tlie  placer, coal and''lode -mines ofthe  province, together with .-tabulated  data invaluable lo the mining fraternity. Matters relating to tlie  jnclici.'iry. are tlealt with, an effort  being made to give a,complete account of the administration of justice-from.our-earliest times, nnd an  excellent synopsis of Hritish Columbia laws affecting- properly and  private rights, compiled by J. II.  Senklcr. K. C., is reproduced.  Among a mass of information, we  particularly note a number of interesting treatises on the Native Races,  Agriculture and Horticulture, Game  and Game Laws, Forest Wealth,  Fisheries, Physical Characteristics  ot B.C. and Education. The latter  being a history of the schools of  tlie. province from the founding of  tlie Hudson Hay free schools on  Vancouver Island down to the present modern schools of today. Tlie  work is .Hritish Columbia's Whittaker, rind should find a place in  every- home, hotel and library in the  provinces Copies ofthe Year Hook  can be" obtained by -application to  the King's Printer, Victoria.

The ofiieial reason given  for this action is that if is necessary  for Nippon to mark time in its expenditure. Of course this excuse.  for such it is, must he swallowed  cum gr.-ino salis, the proceeding being known in this country as " saving your face." The real truth of  tlie matter is that the manufacturers  of Europe, Canada and tbe United  States have pointedly informed the  government e>f Japan that they are  not to be trusted. The invitation  of the Japanese to the world's manufacturers tc> exhibit in Tokio was  regarded by the latter as a piece of  unparallclled   impudence,   there be  1-O^i  )m  No Other Hosiery  Offers This-  t-clothing that fits with absolute perfection, forN  'reasons'you'will readily see if you'll glance at. the'  picture here . . . the only hose made that is permanently shaped to the foot and leg, and that is both  Seamless   and  Snug-Fitting  You would not think of'buying hose with a seam up tho front  of  the  leg , . . .-'Wouldn't- that be  ugly, and unnomforr.abloV  Probably you  Iniy  the. kind  with ri seum up the hank only  because you   didn't   know   there wns a kind free from  ttint  discomfort   arid   unsiglitlincss.

I'or  vears past this has been going on,  the courts of Japan refusing to give  them any redress whatever. Touching this matter, it is refreshing for  us to recall the recent emphatic utterances of Premier McHride as to  his determination to do till in his  power to preserve this province for  the white race, while the action of  the world's manufacturers iu refusing to trust their goods to the  tender mercies of the Japanese,  should have a special significance  for the people of this province and  eleprivc the advocates of Oriental  immigration of not a little material  with which to support their ease.
