NO CHANCE  IN THE STRIKE  But the Issues Are Now Well  Defined.  AND IS BELIEVED CAN BE ADJUSTED  Labor Commissioner King al Fernie, But Man*  agcr Tonkin U at the Coast ��� Qranby  Has 10 days' Coke Supply���May get Wore.  I'liete have been no development!!  in the coal miners' strike situation dui-  thc Inst week, of millet i.-il importance.  The men employed in the Kast Kootenay collieries are still out, and some  of them have left the country. No  attempt has been made to work the  mines.  Manager Tonkin has issued his  swoi 11 statement, showing the highest  and lowest average of wages paid per  shif', a jiiiieral average being $4.50.  Not much weight is attached to this,  however, because no harms are mentioned, nor" are the number of shifts  mentioned worked by any one man in  any one month. Men in Phoenix who  have worked in the Crow's Nest coal  mines, and know whereof (hey speak,  merely smile when a $4.50 daily average is referred ,to.  W. J.. McKenzie King, of Ottawa,  the deputy minister of labor, has arrived at Fernie, but Manager Tonkin  has been at the coast this week, so that  little could be accomplished. George  F. Dougherty, president of District  Association No. 6, \V. F. M., is also  in Feinie, and hopeful that a settlement can be arranged.  Last week's issue of the Fernie Free  Press has an interview with Mr. Tonkin, in which he makes some replies  to the list of grievances of the men If  Mr. Tonkin is correctly" quoted���a  which we have no doubt���it would ap  pear that, by giving and taking a little,  an understanding satisfactory to all can  be reached without great difficulty.  It seems certain that this will done,  and it is merely a question of how long  it will take to get down to business.  , Qranby Has Ten Days' Coke.  At the various Kootenay and Boundary smelters the small supplies of coke  are being gradually used up, and in a  short lime ihey will all be without this  fuel. It was reported this week that  the Noi Ihport smelter had recieved 4c  cars of coke and had resumed, .but  this was an error. The Trail smelter  has closed two copper furnaces. As  noted last week the Greenwood smelter has already blown out, and the  Boundary Falls plant can run a few  days longer.  Possibly the Oranby smelter is the  best off, having a ten days'coke supply  yet. This concern is also still making  efforts to get coke from the Union collieries at the coast, where it is hoped  to secure 5,000 or 6,000 tons, or a  month's supply. In any event, if this  smelter does close, an active development campaign at the company's mines  will keep a large force of men busy  here. '  FUNERAL OF IRA E. JAMES.  Was Held Wednesday���Brother to Arrive  Here Shortly.  Ira E. James, the young man who  was killed by being ciushed by a C. P.  K. dump car last week at the Knob  Hill mine, was buried in the Phoenix  cemetery last Wednesday afternoon.  Constable Darraugh, wlu has had  charge of the case, tried for several  days to get'into communication with  his relatives. He had a sister, a nurse  in a hospital in Brooklyn, New York,  and a brother at Didsbury, N. \V. T.  The latter finally wired to hold the  funeral, and he would himself arrive in  a few days to settle up matters.  The funeral was held from Clark &  Uinns undertaking rooms, several officials from the Granby mines being in  attendance. Rey J: D. P. Knox and  Rev. T. Qreen, of the Methodist  chiirch. weie the officiating clergymen.  Mr. James' brother is expected to arrive in Phoenix by today's train.  The delegates elected from Grand  Forks to attend the Provincial Mining  Association meeting at Victoria were  Wm. Spier, Geo. Fraser, F. M. Kirby,  E. Miller, A. C. Flumerfelt and W.H.  Dinsmore.  f AT GRANBY MINES *|  It seems that something new is con  stantly been started around the Granby mines, Scarcely a week passes that  new work or ground is not opened up,  or something new in the way of machinery put in operation. All of which  merely goes to prove that the management is before.long going to increase  even the large shipments how taking  place from these mines-Hsome 1,500  tons daily.  i  .   This.week the new derrick recently  installed al the upper endof the glory  hole or surface quarry, was set at  woik, and will be of no sm'ull assistance  in getting the ore to the,'Aye-ton cars  that are used on the 1,000-foot tram  line that'feeds the big ore crusher.  The derrick is operated by a 40 horse  power steam engine, which also furnishes power for two drills'used at that  part of the Knob Hill. Formerly the  ore had to be lifted from ���trie quarries  to the small cars, arid now that is a  thing of the past. A little later a rope  ���train; will probably be arranged to take  the place of the derrick, when the ore  is taken out within reach of its arms.  Speaking of using steam* for drills  reminds one that it is indoeaV & long  lime since it has been usedTor/drilling  purposes at these rriines.:v, But, the  present compressor capacity',is"taxed to  its utmost, and until the.^new electric  compressor is ready for, use ��� another  month or more���the boiler;referred to  will furnish the auxilliary power needed.  Yesterday two furnaces at the Granby smelterWere blown .out, ths sole  and only cause being the need of repairs. This cuts the ore shipments  down.for three or four days, when the  two furnaces will be put in blast again.  Work on driving, from the inside on  the No. 3 tunnel hasV been resumed  _ 111,-and;, connection ."fi'om the outside with the 100-foot level of the Old  Ironsides mine will be made before  long. At the same time the driving  is going on the other way, south, towards the Aetna shaft.  Tine C.P.R. will shortly begin the  work of.extending'��� the trestle on the  spur that runs under the Old Ironsides  ore bins, so that switching room can  be had for these bins and those from  the No. a tunnel, thereby greatly facilitating the loading of cars. '  While something like $100,000 has  been spent by the management of the  Granby mines in the last year' in new  machinery and betterments at the properties of the company, aside from wages,  etc., it is said that still other improvements along these lines will.be made  in the spring���all of which will facilitate the getting out of the tonnage of  2,200 daily that will be required next  tummer.  This week a start was made at  breaking down the roof at the entrance  of the Knob Hill tunnel, and some Ot  the heaviest blasts ever heard in Phoenix was one result. Of course, it is  all ore, and as it completely blocks up  the double tracked No. 1 tunnel, advantage was taken of the temporaly  blowing out of two of the smelter furnaces for repairs, when shipments are  lighter, to do the wkor.  Who Owns the Land.  The British Columbia Copper Go.,  Ltd., owners of the Mother Lode mine  and the. smelter at Greenwood, it is  said, has brought suit against Paul  Johnson whose contract as smelter  superintendent expires this' week, in  regard to the title to the land on which  some of the smelter buildings are located.  When the smelter wr.s in its inception four years ago, the people ot  Greenwood gave si number of lots to  the concern as a bonus. These lots  are now said to be in the name of Paul  Johnson, .the company having erected  some buildings thereon. It is to decide who is the rightful owner of these  lots that suit has now been entered,  After spending several days in and  around Phoenix, and sizing up the right  of way on the 15 or 20 (more or less)  routes that the Great Northern may  lake to get into Phoenix, Chas A. Des  Brisay, the right of way man, left the  city again last Sunday.  NEW SMELTER  AT GRAND FORKS  To Be Built in Kettle River  Valley.  REPORT SENT FROM GRAND FORKS  It Is Claimed to Have Four Millions Behind  Jl ���- Also lo Develop  Mines and Build  Railways.  Still another...smelter Story comes  (rom Grand Forks this week, which  we hope mny be found to be Hue in all  particulars. Here is the story as sent  out to the press of the province last  'l'uesday:  |ohn A. Manly, of this city, has re  turned from a trip east. He announces that he has been successful in interesting Chicago and. Kansas City  capital in a big mining, smelting and  railway project involving the erection  of a 2,000-ton smelter at Grand Forks  and the expenditure of four million  dollars in the Boundary district and  the state of Washington.  .Said Mr. Manly: "Our plans are  already matured, but several years will  be occupied in their realization. Chicago and Kansas City capitalists have  subscribed all the money needed for  the proposed enterprise. Work will be  started this summer developing 2,000  horse power on the Kettle river seven  miles below Giand Foiks. This power  will be transmitted by wires to a smelter.which will be erected in the vicinity  of this city. The plant is primarily intended to tieat custom ores-from the  Boundary'mines and mines on the Col  vtlle reservation, and will begin oper  ations with an equipment of two furnaces.  ���'���"This, plant will be enlarged from  time.to time as may be occasioned by  the opening up of our mineral resources. My associates are willing to invest four million dollars, and a portion  of this amount will be devoted to mining enterprises and in building railways  to sections that do not enjoy transpor  tation facilities. I am not at liberty  just now to go in'o details respecting  the route of the proposed railways, as  we have to obtain certain legislation  and other powers. However a year  hence will see the entire project well  under way."  Mr. Manly added that he found east  em people remarkably well informed  respecting the mineral wealth of the  Boundary, but experienced no little  difficulty in overcoming the objections  of some of his associates to invest. A  number of them dwelt on the two per  cent mineral tax, whilst others main  tamed that the uncertainty of mining  legislation tended lo divert capital from  British Columbia.  MORE BOILER CAPACITY FOR SNOWSHOE.  Was  Ordered   From   the  Jenckes   Machine  ., Company.  Late last week the Snowshoe Gold  and Copper Mines, Ltd., by the superintendent, J. W. Astley, placed an order with the Jenckes Machine Co., of  Shcrbrooke, Quebec, for the largest  steam boiler yet installed in Phoenix  camp mines. The order was given to  K. P. Williams, the liomidary agent  lor the manufactureis, just before he  left for a visit to the head office of the  company at Shcrbrooke. The new-  boiler is to be 1.50 horse i>ower capacity.  Last winter the same company furnished the Snowshoe mine with two So  horse power boilers, of the horizontal  return tubular type, which are in use  in the new compressor building. Besides these the company has the two  original boilers used in early develop  ment, so that when the one just order  ed is in place, they will have five boilers, with a total of 420 horse power.  While electrical power will be used  for the new hoist over the main shaft  at the Snowshoe, and the compressor  is built so as to be electrically driven,  if desired, the latter will not be operated by electricity for some time yet.  Nanaimo Strike Ended.  A dispatch from Victoria Wednesday states that "the Nanaimo coal miners' strike is off. The men return to  work tomorrow. The proposition of  the company was approved by the executive and accepted by the men this  morning.  Boundary Mining Notes.  Robert Anderson, foreman at the B.  C. mine, has accepted a better position  at the Le Roi mine in Rossland.  At the Cariboo mine, Camp Mc-  Kinney, from 40 to 50 men are employed, while the Waterloo has 17 on  the payroll.  Some 360 men are on the payroll of  the Granby mines, the largest number  probably since the first coal miners'  strike of last May.  It is stated that shipments from the  suiface of the Oro Denoro, in Summit  ramp, will be sent to the Sunset smelter as soon as the snow is rone.  - A force of coal miners wis this week  taken to Rock Creek by TuhnMcPhail  from East Kootenay, to begin active  operations on the coal measures recently acquired there by the Ashhola Smelter, Ltd.  The No. 2 hoist at the Old Ironsides mine had a break down last week,  the raw hide pinion giving away. A new-  one of biass was cast, and thi'3 week  Monday ihe machine was in use again.  On the Blue Jay, in this camp, Ed-  waids and Morrison have now gotten  in 125 feet on ihe tunnel which they  are driving to slrike the ledge found in  the shaft. They expect to reach the  shaft in another 25 or 30 feet.  More men were discharged from the  Mother Lode mine Sunday,thus reducing the working force to the compari-  tively few men engaged in making connection between.the mule tunnel below and'one of the upper quarries.  SENT SEYEN  TO VICTORIA  ��� n't-"    1   *. t   t  To the Provincial Mining Association.        .7   ';  PHOENIX RESIDENTS WERE NOT BEHIND  WAS SENT BACK FOR TRIAL  McKenzievs. Knob Hill Gold  Mining Co.  BY THE FULL COURT AT VICTORIA  Sued Company for Injuries Received February II, 1901, and Last May Got a .Verdict  for $1.500���Company Appealed Case.  A case of some interest to miners  and mining men generally was, recently decided at Victoria. Last year in  May I)an> McKenzie, a former employee of the Knob Hill Gold Mining  Co., Ltd., sued its successor, the  Granby Co., for $5,000 for damages  received in an explosion at the Knob  Hill mine on February 11, 1901. The  rase came up for trial at the sitting of  the Supreme Court at Greenwood,  J. R. Brown appearing for the plaintiff and Solicitor McDonald for the  company, The jury gave judgment  for McKenzie for $1,500, and the case  was appealed to the full, court by the  defendant company.  Some weeks ago the case was argued  at Victoria, E. P. Davis assisting Mr,  lirown, and the decision was reserved.  It has finally been given, and the  court has referred it back to the Su-  pieme Court for a new uial. It is  not known whether the plaintiff will  bring on a new trial or not.  McKenzie was injured and eventually lost the sight of one eye by drilling into a missed hole, and claimed  negligence on, the part of the company. The company claimed that all  due diligence had been exercised to  prevent just such accidents. The case  occupied the jury for two days, and in  his charge the judge told the juiy to  take into consideration the fact that  the company bad posted conspicuous  signs about the pioperly, warning its  men lo look carefully ft.r missed holes.  Mayor Rumtxrrer li Presides! Local Branch,  Roderick aid Esaelwood Vfcc-PrefMcvif,  and Wm. Tomllpion SecrefaryTreaiKrer.  Last Saturday's meeting of the mining men of Phoenix for the purpose of  forming a local branch  of the Ptov- -  incial Mining Association, and'to send  delegates to the Victoria convention  this week Wednesday, was well attend-1'  ed, every seat in the hall being tak.Wj. -  , George W.

Yolen  Williams  and others. '  1\ J. Hardy, of the special committee of ways and means, reported that  the committee had been successful in  gathering contributions amounting to  over $200, for the' purpose of paying  the expenses" of delegates'to the convention. The membership was again  opened, when a number took advantage of the opportunity to show their  sympathy in the plan by signing.        ^  Those who were elected as delegates  were Mayor Rumberger, J. W. Astley,  W. J. Porter, W. R. Williams, James  Punch, F. Hesselwood and Henry.  Heidman. The delegates started on  Monday over the Great Northern railway from Grand Forks, where-they expected to join delegations from Greenwood and Grand Forks. ,  Minim Convention at Work. .:..���...-���:')  Victoria, B. C, Feb.   25.-rIl'he big-  mining convention is in full swing, two  sessions being held today.   John-Keen',  of Kaslo, was elected chairman, and H.  Mortimer Lamb secretary.     Business  was practically limited to;the appoints ..-���:.  ment of committees, but; each  section  insisted so strongly on being represent^    ���  ed on the  committees  that  time was  lost. ; Mr. Hobson made a stirring ap^  peal to get down to business,  and no  doubt the convention will be the most  important one ever held   in the province so far as effect on the   mining industry is concerned]     There are 256  delegates in a'.tendance.   '  -.The city hall was packed tonight at  the smoker given to the  mining delegates.    Aftarwaids the visitors witness.-  ed the boxing matJi   between   Hill of  the navy and Hall of Victoria.

There is no  reason why this tax should not have  been collected long ago, and thus been  a source of considerable revenue to  the government.  Premier Prior thinks that March  12th is too soon to get ready_ht*rt\e  opening of the tegtslatfvtf assembly, so  he has had the date set forward 10  April ad. Should he not have a majority, as the opposition confidently  claim, it will be pretly late to appeal to  the people and gel action on appropriations that can be utilized this year.  John D1. Rockefeller is said -to be  the only billionaire living. This is proof  rjbihiv'e that he has never been in  the "newspaper business.  For some reason, Pennsylvania  methods' ���� coal mining do not seem  lobe particularly popular in British  Colombia. If the samples we have  had are typical, it is little wonder.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Rumors of the settlement of the  coal miners' strike have been more or  less (current, but up to this writing, we  regret to say, there seems tc be little  foundation for them.  . There is talk of the Laurier govern-  , mejit taking steps to exclude Chinese  from Canada, but it'sis likely "to end in  talk for some time to come���on account  of ������Imperial" reasons.

But when it did awaken it  sent a full delegation to the coast convention, as did Grand Forks and  Greenwood.  We "Hope So���Advices received  both from Nanaimo and from Fernie  indicate the probability of a speedy  termination of the disturbances in  the colliery centers, mediation being  suggested with respect to ������ the Fernie  difficulty, while at Nanaimo the company feels itself capable of making  I such compromise agreements with the  I men as will permit of an immediate  resumption.���Vancouver World.  The Kaslo Kootenaian asserts that  compulsory arbitration is nonsense.  Just |he same there are a few thousand - persons in the Kootenays and  Yale just now who would like to see a  little of this "nonsense" tried in the  coal miners' strike.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  If something does not happen soon,  Czar Tonkin will shortly have the pleasure of knowing that he has been the  direct cause of closing every smelter in  Kootenay and Yale, and many of the  mines. He should be proud of this  record, but few will rise and call him  blessed.  The Nelson Tribune enjoys the  unique distinction of being almost the  only paper in the Province to come  out fiatfootcd against the Provincial  Mining Association, and John Houston does not mince his words, either.  The whole series of diatribes is decidedly Houstonesque.  ' Even the preachers are after the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. for the  manner in which it treated its men and  th�� public generally. At last week's  i-meeting of the Kootenay Presbytery,  'held at Nelson, resolutions were passed  cwftiemning the company in measured  : terms, andthe general public says amen.  "If you want to be noticed you must  gel in front of folks and worry 'em  some."  The advertiser who is better than his  word is belter than the man who just  barely fills the measure of his promises  Quick sales are to the merchant what  fast trains are to the traveling public.  Well advertised articles are the ones  which make quick profits.  The only way to saw a log in two is  to keep the saw going in one place.  You can adjust this thought to advertising as well as to anything else.  Publicity is the shibboleth of success  in trade. The newspaper is the recognized first means to this end. It is  not extravagant to say that advertising  is the alpha and the omega of successful commerce.  Ii advertising is worth beginning it  is worth continuing. Perseverance is  the only way to convince the public that  you have faith in your business. To  stop advertising is taken as s tacit admission that your goods are not worthy  of public confidence.  j jd, ^ MINING  4  !������������>��� ���t>**��**��v��**��>4����,* ��>��>���������������������������������������������������*��� ������**���������*���**  About 2,200  tons of ore have been  shipped from the Slocan in 1903.  American smelter trust officials are  again in the field for Slocan Ores.  Electric lines are among the possibilities for the Lardeau this year.  Not a ton of ore was shipped from  the mines aiound Slocan City last  week.  A stamp mill will be installed at the  Fofthorn mine, near Ymir, in the  spring.  In Rossland the branch of the P10-  vincial Mining Association has over  500 membeis.  J. M. Harris says a car of Slocan  ore used to be worth $5,000, now it is  worth only $3,000.  The North San Foil and California  mines, Republic, are shipping to the  Nelson smeller.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 6,891 toiis, making a total of 52,-  033 tons for the year to date.  The ore shipments from Siindon for  hasfweek were:   Slocan Star 125 tons,  Ruth 20 tons, Stranger 20 tons.  Some 276 crown granted mineral  claims in the Slocan are to be sold for  non-payment of taxes of 25 cents per  acre.  As the Trail smelter has declined  the ore till the coke situation is relieved, the Giant mine at Rossland has  closed.  A cleanup of the oie at the smeltei  would leave the Le Roi mine not only  out of debt, but with a cash balance  of $300,000 on hand.  The winze from the tunnel level on  the Lucile Dreyfus, four miles from  Grand Forks, has been sunk to the 10c-  foot point, making a total of, 190 fett  in depth from the surface.  Within a week or so it is expected  that the electric plant being installed  at the Union Jack, Ymir, will be in  operation, It is the first plant of the  class put up in the district.  Finch & Campbell, of Spokane,  formerly owners of the Enterprise, in  the Slocan, aie selling out their big  Kendall mine in Montana, their share  of the proceeds amounting lo $i,ooc-  000.  The Great Western company in the  Lardeau is steadily shipping about 20  tons a day of first class hand sorted  ore from the Silver Cup and Nettie L.  of an approximate value, without considering the lead, of $2,240.  A tiial shipment of about  20  tons  of Ethel ore from the Lardeau was recently made to the Trail  smelter and  realized $118 a ton for lead and silver,  nothing being allowed for gold or cod-  per.    The  ore averaging about 400  ounces uilver and $7 in gold to the ton.  The Wilcox mine,  Ymir,   has been  temporarily closed down owing lo the  heavy snowfall  which   practically impedes traffic.    As soon as the road  is  in condition to admit of the shipment  of concentrates ��� of which there is a  large quantity on hand���woik will le  resumed.  The hydraulic,machinery which has  been stored away since the ^Duke of  York claim on China Creek, Alberni,  was closed down some years ago, is to  be put to use again.. It will be shipped to Atlin to be used on the hydraulic claims of the Pine Creek  Power Company.  The Rossland W .ild is authorized  by Paul S. Couldrey, the manager 01  the Le Roi No. 2, and by H.

A year ago an effort was made to in-  sjjuce the government to open its lands  in East Kootenay, in view of the mo  nopoly enjoyed by the Crow's Nest  ' Pass Coal Co. in this section. 'The  subject was well aired, but nothing was  done about it at the time, and the mat  ter is in the same condition. Now  when the coal company officials put  the entire country in the present unpleasant condition, on account of their  arrogant policy, the subject comes to  the front again. Those valuable coal  lands should be thrown open, and at  ,'esice. Nothing would bring the coal  company lo time quicker.  RE MARCUS OPPENKEIMER'S ESTATE.

The rising copper market and the  practical extinction of the supply of that  metal is already having a noticeable  effect on the copper producers of British Columbia, in that thty are more  hopeful for the future than have been  for a year and a half.  Copper is now quoted at 12^2 and  13 cents per pound, and it is prophesied by authorities on such questions that  before twelve months are out the ruling pi ice will be i�� cents.  This opinion is based upon the now  nearly indisputable claim that the market is but scantily supplied with copper,  and there are those who even go so far  as to assert that there will be copper  famines within the nest eight months,  AND  Of every descriptiou  can be obtained at Eastern Prices at the  Eastern  Townships Bank.

A Pioneer man asked  him in regard to tire published 'Statement, of Manager Tonkin, showing the  amount of money earned per shift on  the average by the miners. The reply  shows just how the scheme is worked.  Said he:   ,     ;  "That schedule prepared and published by Manager Tonkin has a nice  appearance, providing the men worked  regular shifts; but the fa-^t is that they  do not. I have talked to a number of  them, who state that they do not get  in more than two' dr lliree shifts per  week, or less than half time. This will  show that Mr. Tonkin was not giving  the public all the factt when he issued  that schedule of wages paid."     /;  ..; MS '  In the face of the strike now in  force at the Crow's Nest coal mines, it  seems ridiculous that the company  should be advertising their stores'lor  sale, but such is ihe case. How long  the stiike will last, no one on this green  eat th'can tell, but there is a feeling  that public sentiment on this all absorbing question will soon get so strong  ihat something must be done towards  a settlement. .When this is an accomplished fact, it will be a good thing for  the men of the company to seil its  three stores.  ��� '���.

If a citizen wants the  News of the Empire and finds the Mail  too slow he can send a Telejrram around  the Globe and locate the latest War  Cry, or it he finds Time close he can  buy a World for a cent, sit down on  Saturday Night with a Sentinel at his  gate, a Guardian at the entrance of his  home and ei.joy Pleasant Hours."  , Here is one that is passed around  by the newspapers that is applicable to  all towns:  "There is no reasonable excuse for  a man living in a town if he doesn't  like it. If you have no word of commendation to say for your town, its institutions or the people, emigrate. You  won't-stop the course of events by go  ing away, neither will your carping  criticism cut any figure if you remain.  The church bell will have the same  musical ring, the dogs will play just as  briskly, ihe fish will bite just as well,  and the pure air and bright sunshine  will have the same health giving properties. Speak a good word for your  neighbors if you can; if you can't don't  everlastingly enlarge on their faults. If  you have become thoroughly sour and  disgusted and cannot see any good in  your own town, move away; go somewhere where things suit you."  Oregon R. R. & Nav. Co.  Oregon Short Line R. R.

TJST as a sort of New Tear's oeurcL  tbe "Woman's Suffrage' Society1  Paris have Issued a manifesto contending that,, tut woman In  , her. maiden name accomplishes  ���H the  duties of a citizen,  she does  prejudice, to her Interests by sinking;  her identity and losing her individual- '.  ty In adopting the name of her hus-  | band -when dhe marries.  Consequently, '  it seems on the tapis that In future,*  when Miss Smith marries Mr. "Brown,  she will still retain her maiden paitro- ^  nymlc of Smith.    Being married, she'  must of necessity be Mrs.; therefore. If;,  she retains her.maiden name of Smith,' ,  we shall have the weird anomaly,,of  Mr. Brown and Mrs. Smith as man and   '  wife.   Now, supposing Mrs. Smith, oth- ;  erwise Mm. Brown, should, toy any un- '  foreseen event, meet with * Mr. Smith  in the absence of her husband,-end It .  should ��o forth to the world���in a hotel  visitors' book, for Instance���that'tney ���  wero  actually   Mr.   and   Mrs.   Smith,  where the dickens, tn the event of trouble, would Mr. Brown come In?    Mr.  Brown might swear by all that* -was  holy that Mrs. Smith was Mrs. Brown,  but If Mr. Smith swore that she was  Mrs.  Smith and Mrs\ Smith did' not  stoop to deny It, what Jury outside a  lunuxlc   asylum   could   convict �� Mrs.  Smith of playing fast and loose with .  Mr. Brown?   It Is a complex problem,  to say the least of It; but if the Woman's Suffrage Society of gay Poree  are not content to let well alone, I suppose they must put up with the consequences.  I  A Girl's Daring Feat.  T seems hardly possible that a girt  of sixteen should save nearly tidy  people from a terrible death. Yet  that Is wfoat Grace Bassell did, who  may well be called the Grace Darling ot  Australia. It happened one day in December that'a vessel was wrecked oft  the coast, of Australia, a few miles  from the Bassell home. The lifeboat on  board the steamer was lowered," but It  capsized'and the eight people In it were  drowned. So the rest of the crew clung  to the sinking steamer. The surf ran  so wildly that no one could dare swim  through It, and there was not a house  or person In sight. The girl, who was  a splendid horsewoman, was riding  along with a native servant. She  caught sight of the vessel in distress;  turning her' horse's head toward the  coast, she started him on a quick gallop. When she reached the sea she  urged lier /horse Into the angry surf.  She rode boldly on till she reached the  vessel. With great difficulty she took  some of the Children in her arms and  put thenv before her on the saddle;  then, with bigger children and wotnep  clinging to her dress, she started for  the shore, gave those she had rescued  to the care of her servant, and returned  again to:the'.wreck. So she went backward and forward for four hours, till  all were safe on land, the servant having ridden to bring out the last man.���  "Leslie's Weekly."

It appears that  it 'has been most unfairly misrepresented. What we stupidly call its fickleness is really nothing in the -world  but a perfectly laudable effort to reproduce In our midst the Imperial nature of our climate, remarks "Outlook."  When it presents us with primroses In  November, that is to remind us of the  pleasant picnic weather they are having on' the veldt; the same laudable  intention accounts for June snowstorms. Nor <lo we have to wait for  complete reversals of the seasons. A  ���week of Imperial weather���sometimes,  like a cheap trip, It is all crammed into  one day���runs somewliat as..follows:  Monday, fog (home produce); Tuesday,  cricketing weather (Australia); Wednesday, skating (Canada); Thursday,  waterspouts (various ocean territories); Friday, steaming (West Coast);  Saturday, general imperial representation; Sunday���but the British Sunday  h��s a climate of its own.  Edison's Prophecy.  Mr. Edison's latest theory is that by  and by-we shall be able to do without  sleep altogether; as by the more . perfect processes of electric lighting it will  be difficult to tell night from day, and  we shall forget when bedtime comes  round. The man of the future Is evidently going to live pretty rapidly. It  was only the other day 'that we were  told that square meals would be a  thing of the past; in the good time  that's coming. Instead of laboriously  working your way throiigih seven or  eight courses, all you'll have to do will  be to go to the nearest chemist and  ibuy a few pills with the nourishment  of a city dinner concentrated Into each.  In the face of these conditions one feels  disposed to urge the races unborn to  stay where they are for their own  sakes. ���  A Smart Salesman.

Henry Thomas Buckle's thoughts and  conversation were always on a high  level. Once he remarked: 'TMen and  women range themselves Into three  classes, or orders, of Intelligence; you  can tell the lowest class by their habrt  of always talking about persons; the  next by the fact that their habit is always to converse about things; the  highest by their preference for the dls '  cusslon of Ideas."
