Mc-  Innls and Murpby-B>e Elrcllons to Be  Held Shortly.  5? Hunter-Kendrick Co,!  PHOKNIX  GRHKNWOOD  GRAND FORKS  SANDON  Last week Friday there was a decided change in government circles at  Victoria. Premier James Dunsmuir  handed in his resignation, recommending Col. E. G. Prior, minister of mines,  as his successor, and the lattei was at  once sworn in as the head of the government.  The announcement, while not unexpected, came an a "surprise in many  quarters, as it was thought Attorney-  General Eberts would be the next  premier. Mr. Dunsmuir, however, did  not see it that way when it came down  to the point, and Col. Prior landed the  plum.  The new cabinet, as finally selected,  consisted of the following gentlemen  J. D.Trentice, finance minister; W.C.  Wells, commissioner of ��� lands and  works; Dennis Murphy, provincial secretary and minister of education; D.M.  Eberts, attorney-general; E. G. Prior  minister oi mines; \V. \V. Mclnnis,  president of the council. Mr. Eberts  did not at once accept the portfolio  which he has held under the Dunsmuir  regime, but finally concluded to cast in  his lot with the Prior government.  1'he new government claims that it  will have a majority wjien -the house  meets early in the year, but the opposition say it.will be a very slender  majority; if they have any."   ~  The machinery for; the "40-stamp  mill for thetNickel Plate'mine, Simil-  kameen, has been shipped.'  The Cariboo-Camp McKinney has  declared a dividend of ^yi cents per  share, payable December 15th.  The Emma mine, $ummit camp,  used its new ore bunkers for the first  time this week, and is-now doubling  the output of ore. ]  One-half of the new 60-drill air  compiessor, which arrived last week,  is now assembled in the' new. building  erected for the pnrpose",*  Last Monday the first shipment of  Republic ore reached theiSunset smelter, at Boundary Falls, consisting of  three cars from the Lone-Pine-Surprise.  By Christmas the secdnd halt of the  60-drill electric air compressor being  put in at the Granby mines, will be  on the way from the Jenckes Machine  Co., of Sherbrooke, Quebec."'  This week the Snowshoe mine made  the record shipment of o?e for any single week in its history, tlfc total being  1,410 tons. Foreman Trevorrow  thinks he will do even belter next week.  Wednesday the 100 horse power  dynamo, which will be used to drive  the huge ore ci usher recently installed  at the Knob Hill mine, was received,  and is now being set up by the Granby  Co.'s electrician. The machine was  furnished by the Canadian General  Electric Co., from the faqtory at Peterborough, Ont. The 700 horse power  dynamos, to drive the new .air compressor, will not arrive for a month 01  two yet. us    ,-  THE OBSERVATORY  Things Talkfd or at  Home and Klsf.wiip.ku  Once again the passenger trains on  the Phoenix branch" of the C.P.R. aie  getting into reprehensible habits. Neat  ly every' day the mail train is from one  to three hours late, even when the  trains on the main line are on time.  The passenger coach is attached to an  ore train, and said ore tiain being hauled by the famous Shay engine, with the  terrific speed of eight miles an houi  (when there is good luck,) mails and  passengers arrive at their destination  at any old time.  It is a peculiar fact that when the  ore shipments from Phoenix are heaviest, the mail trains are the most icgu-  lar. Just now the tonnage is about  half the normal amount. It would  seem that the C. V. R., which derives  such a good revenue from the Phoenix  mines, would treat the residents of this  camp a little better. A half a million  a year from one camp should be sufficient to afford a half way decent passenger service, anyway. . What's the matter with the postoffice department taking this matter up? As it is, the C. P.  R. should either impiove the service or  place sleeping cars on the Phoenix  branch.  City and District Notes  Profitable   Pointers  for Ufte Holidays.

Providence Mine Made Auolher High Grade  Shipment.  A Greenwood correspondent says:  There are now 15 men employed at  the Piovidence mine.' During tlie  last two or three weeks two cars of the  high grade ore occuning heie were sent  to ihe smelter at Trail. The returns  received for the fiist of these were  within a few cents of $2,000, being at  the rate of $100 a ion for ihe 20-ton  lot. The second or of ore is similar  to that shipped earlier, so will likely  11111 25 or 50 cent higher in value  than that fiist above mentioned. Sufficient ore lor another 20-ton car is now  on the dump and this will be shipped  next week.  These several lots of ore were taken  from the drift at the sorfopt level. The  shaft is now being deepened below  that level, following the vein down, and  the ore continues to look well and  maintain promise of both permanency  and high value.'.

Superintendent Hodges ..will visit  Denver, Chicago, Pittsburg, and  Montreal.  Nt> Hockey League This Year.  There will probably be no Kootenay-  Boundary Hocky League this year,  Rossland having definitely decided not  to come in on the proposals on account  of the expense. Several of the crack  players of the old Phoenix team have  moved to other paits, but it is not unlikely that a team will be organized,  and that some match games will be  played in the Boundary, if not with  teams, frciii further points.  The evolution of the bob  sled has  been exemplified in Phoenix in the last  ten days.    First the boys took up the  sport, and then their elders  began it,  utilizing in  the   beginning  the slight  sleds made for children's use.    These  soon gave out, however, and now c*9pec  ialiy made bobs,combiningstrengt hand  lightness, are making their appearance.  The sport is  much   enjoyed   by large  numbers, upper Knob Hill avenue affording a safe and excellent place  for  carrying on the sport.  Mt  The interviewer in Spokane has been  talking to Jay P. Giaves again, and  this time makes him say lhal the Oian  by Co. is figuiing on a 50 p"er cent increase to the smelter plant at Grand  Forks. This would give the smelter a  daily tonnage of 2,400 tons of oie  Well, let it come; we can stand it, especially as the oie muct come from the  company's mines in this camp.  CONTRACT IS  COMPLETED  Completed Ibe V.  This week the C. P. R   extra  gang  has been busy putting down  the   iron  on the Y which was recently graded in  the Phoenix yards.    The track is now  ���ill laid, ami the Y will shortly be placed in commission.    Ai the same time  ihe loop at  Hartford Junction, to do  away with the switchback   which  has  been used since the  road   was  built,  nearly three  years  ago,   will  also be  used.    The net results will be a shortening of time generally on the PhoEnix  branch, which all trainmen and  travellers will welcome.  Death From An Acblng Molar.  W. E. Medill, of Anaconda, who is  well known all over the lioundary. died  last Saturday from the effects of an ah-  cess, caused by an ulcerated tooth-  He was operated on Satursday for relief, which came, but although the  surgeons expected him to recover, as  he rallied somewhat, he succumbed  late last week. Mr. Medill was manager of the Snowflake Lime Co., and  was generally known among conti actors  and builders.  Porter Bros. Finish Stripping  Operations.  OUTFIT STORED   FOR THE WINTER  An Immense Area of the Knob Hill Claim Now  Ready for Ore Quarrying, Which has Been  Already Started.  Another Transcontinental Line.  Manager Hayes, ofthe Grand Trunk  Railway, has given it out definitely that  his road intends to build an independent line through Canada to the Pacific  coast, costing all the way from $75,-  000,000 to $100,000,000. It will be  called the Grand.Trunk Pacific Rail  way, aud will be financed in Canada.  'POST-OFFICE STORE.  Will Be Married at Montreal.  Monday's train took Rev. Jasper  Hard, who has been the settled pastor  of the Congregratinal church here for  the last four months. He was bound  for Montreal, where he will be married  on the Sth of December to Miss Elsie  ]jro\vn, of Nottingham, England, who  is now on the way to join Mr. Hard.  After the wedding the couple will settle down in Middleville, Ontario, where  he has accepted a call as pastor of a  Congregational church.  F. C. Baker, forernan for Porter  Pros., went to Spokane Tuesday, to  confer with his principals, expecting  to return next Monday.  From Midway comes information  that a railway survey party of 15 or 16  men is camped at the mouth of the  Myers creek canyon on J^ R. Jackson's  ranch, across which a,r.d thence up  Myers creek one of the piehmihary  survey lines of the V. V. & E. railway  was run some time since.  Tho Kettle Valley Lines, running  between Grand Foiks and Republic,  which has been running ore trains only  for the last few months, and that oc-.  casionally, is intending to resume regular passenger trains in a few days.  The net earnings of th .* Le Roi fo  the last five months are given out as  being $438,000, and a dividend is  looked for in the next few months.  Last Saturday   Foreman   Baker,  in  charge of the contract for stripping the  surface of the Knob Hill claim, which  was started last July by him for Porter  Bros., finished up the work in hand for  the season, took down the   remaining  cable tramway, and   stored   the  paraphernalia (or the winter.      Altogether,  something over 15,000 cubic yards ol  debris were removed since the force b.--  gan work last summer, and a large additional area of the  property  is  now  ready for the work of quarrying the ore.  Phis has been started by  the  Granby  employees.  It was expected that Porter Bros,  would also begin the work of taking  out ore for the new ore crusher, but  there have been so many delays at the  smelter as well as in getting the crusher at work, that the Granby officials  have desided to do this woik for the  present themselves. During the woik  of the contract Porter Bros have had  all the way to 40 men employed in  stripping, the face of ore uncovered altogether being about 250 feet wide by  750 feet long. The Pioneer will not  attempt here to estimate the tonnage of  ore thus n*,ade available, but it easily  runs up into the hundreds of thousands  or oven millions of tons.  See Boyle for Xmas goods.

Last Tuesday, at the suggestion of  the Nelson Board of Trade, a confer ���  ence was held in that city with VV. A.  Galiiher, with the object of framing  resolutions to be submitted to the Dominion government, for the purpose of  assisting the languishing silver-lead industry in particular and mining in general throughout the proiince.  It was in many respects a strange  gathering, composed of men of many  shades of opinion, from the man who  wanted a bounty "to the man who  thought if duties were taken off everything would be iovely. Among those  present were the following:  W. A. Galiiher, M. P.; G. , O.  Buchanan, Kaslo.; Smith Curtis, M.  L. A.; A. C. Gait, Rossland,; Edmund  li. Kirby, Wai Eagle and Center Star  mines,; Henry Roy, Robert Hedley, J.  J. Campbell, B. Cortiana, F. M. Black,  J. Dover, D. McAithur, W. P. Tier-  nay, E. C. Wragge, \V. H. Wilson, W.-  G.

Croasdaile, G. Taj lor, C.  McHardy, Rev. F. H. Giah'am,' E.  Moffat, Bruce White, S. S. Taylor; E.  Rammelmever, J. Houston, A. J. Kelly,  J. H. Tonkin, and W. J. Caldwell.  A. C. Gait, of Rossland proposed a  lesolution taking off the,duty on mining machinery and supplies, which "  evoked a long discussion, with several  speakers trom each point of view, endless so-called facts and figures being  offered to support each contention.  John Houston finally proposed an  amendment that such mining supplies  as were not manufactured in Canada  should be admitted duty free, and  that the tariff be adjusted to a parity.  He staled that the normal consumption of lead in Canada should be about  30,000 tons per annum, and the pio-  tluction should be confined to that  amount, and the mineowners should  not clamor lor pap beyond that tonnage. Bounties were only a temporary  benefit if a benefit at all. The speaker declared he was a protectionist.  Mr. Houston's amendment finally  prevailed, the vote being unanimous.  It was also suggested that a delegation  be appointed to accompany Mr.,Galiiher to Ottawa, to present the collective  views to the finance minister before  the framing of the budget. One member of the committee is to be appointed by the Sandon lead miners, another  by the gold-copper industry, a third to  speak for the smelting interests and the  fourth is to represent the Associated  Hoards ot Trade. This resolution was  also can ied, and the meeting adjourned.  A crew of men are now engaged in  repairing the bridge across Kettle river  at Midway. The bridge will be raised  and new piers put under it, this being  necessary on account of damage done  last spring by the high water. Road  Foreman Findlay has charge of the  work.

'down the reins'of office as premier of  British Columbia, and resigned in favor  A of Col. E. 'G.' Prior,  the  minister of  ' '"'mines,' who will continue to hold  that  portfolio.   lKfr. t)tinsmuir  was" never  r -. fitted'for the office he held; so tenaci-  ".oush/j and even  the'enemies of Mr.  Prior will,admit that the change cannot be' for the' worse.  ;'At'the Revelstoke con vention of con-  '' servatives, Mr. Prior was not very much  t' at Home, "although a conservative him-  ��    self, and professing to believe in party  ". government. .He did  not or could  "not control   the convention,  and so  '' would'not'Be bound by 'its decisions'.  Now it is'given out that bis'will be a  " non-partisan government, in which grits'  'and tones will have a hand.  The new" premier at last has the  'chance'of his lifetime to make a record  ���.\for>imself.'/;Hecan take the matter  "'��� in' hand and so arrange'tbings'as to encourage to'the uttermost  the mining  industry of this province,  so that  he  ' wiH'gain1 the evei lasting gratitude of  the greatest tax-paying portion' of the  ���' province,   the   mining   communities.  ' While the "mining industry  has been  1 -growing'steadily, it is in  spite of the  " attitude of recent governments at Victoria,' and not on account of them.  Col. Prior, if he will, can now cause  'the province to take a great* stride for-  ' ward in its mining conditions. If he  "has the cotirage to do this he will cer-  "talnlyVgaih'the'lasting goodwill of all  "' tKe'tipVcbfarVlry ' constituencies. If he  y "does rioi,*at'the first opportunity he will  I'be-tufned do'wn'good and hard, and  1 his conservative friends (?) will be only  "too fiappy to'officiate at the obsequies.  Republic has tried several expeii-  ments in the daily paper line, and yel  another is pi ejected, to succeed the  late Daily Independent American,  Evidently there are some men trying  to fit square pegs in lound holes.  -With tho rank and file of the conservatives, with Joe Martin and his  sharp knife, and a few others against  him, not to mention the election protest of E. V. Uodwell, the new premier's  lot may be a happy one, and may not.  The mining columns of some of the  coast papers are fearfully and wonderfully made up. Referring to the anticipated increase of ore shipments from  this camp to 1,500 tons daily, the Van-:  couver Province prints it as 500 tons  and the Victoria Colonist has it as 15,-  000 tons. Phoenix has long since pass  ed the former mark, but may reach the  latter in time.  The Ymir mine has paid $300,000  in dividends.  Lardeau's mining record office has  been removed to Camborne.  Six tons of Guinea Gold, Lardeau,  ore netted $103.20 per ton recently.  Paul S. Couldrey is the new manager of the Le Roi No. 2 at Rossland.  The new Ladysmith smelter, at Vancouver Island, is to be blown in about  December r5th.  1-ast week's ore shipments from  Rossland weie 6,405 tons, or 303,390  tons for the year.  The LeRoi made a drofitof ��68,617  last month, and cleared $417,686 foi  the last five months.  Recently one pan of dirt from the  Point claim, in the Cariboo, yielded  54^ ounces of gold, valued at $982.  Five tons of Hampton ore fiom the  Slocan, leturned 1,983 ounces of silver to the ton at the Nelson smeltei  last week.  It is stated if Hon. J. H. Ross is  elected for Yukon a portfolio of mines  will be created for the dominion and  he will be appointed minster.  The Cherry Cieek CoppeJ King  Mines, Ltd. have taken over the "0.

The placer mines on Wild Hoise  creek, East Kootenay, have about  finished cleaning up, and the yield of  gold is reported as much' larger than  that of 1001.

The Garretson furnace,  formatting  and converting copper ores at one operation, is said by George O. Bradley,  ,i of Spokane, in an interview printed in  ,,: the Spokesman-Review, to be a failure.  Mr. Bradley has been visiting the Crof-  ', ton  smelter,   on   Vancouver   Island,  where one of the Garretson furnaces is  being tested," and this was his annount e-  ment when he got back to Spokane.  James Breen, however, who is well  known in Phoenix and the Boundary,  '"and is'the* manager of the Crofton  "smelter, at once denounced Mr. Brad-  ' ley's" statement as a tissue of falsehoods.  It appears that' Mr.   Bradley  had, as  '" "agent for an eastern machinery house,  "sold   the machinery  to  the Crofton  smelter, and when it did not arrive for  " months after the contract period,  Mr.  Breen told Mr.Bradley what he thought  'of him, in language that was  forcible,  ') ii not elegant^ the first time Mr. Brad-  V~ ley turned up again.    Mr. Bradley, to  ��� "get even," declared the Garretson fur-  " nace to be a failure,  The testing of tbe Garretson furnace  J' is not yet complete, and those in the  best position  to know  think  it will  * eventually be made a success.    If this  '*' is the case it means a great deal for low  ~V grade camps where it can be   utilized.  ���l Perhaps in no section would it be more  7 welcome than in'the Boundary, where  *"vt .  ���    our strongpoint is low grade ores in al  most illimitable quantities.  \4  Now that a new government is" in  the saddle at Victoria, any old kind of  developments may be expected.  * Col.

W'aleilow, of the Snow  shoe Odd and Copper mines, Ltd,  who spent two weeks.in this camp this  last summer, is more than ever convinced of die ���greatness of iioiindary mines'  The following Ts" from the pen of the  editor of. the M. C. Mining Review  (Lmidoii), after a recent chat with Mr.  Wftterlowi  We are glad to be able to give  our  leaders the impressions formed by Mr.  Waterlow after his fourth.visit to Canada, and third visit to Uriiish Columbia.  As the,value of a  map's, impressions  ;icpends largely,,not only on his qualifications (o express an   opinion   bul  also to the facilities wl]iclj he may have  enjoyed,!!! obtaining  a   thorough   acquaintance with ihe/'sqljject under discussion, it-is hardly  necessary  to  remark that this Review does, not  seek  an interview except wilh those whose  opinion is entitled to grand considera^  tion..  In Mr. Waterlow, who is a director pf the greatest  commercial   enterprises in London, one finds  a man  of affairs whose intimate  acquaintance  with business matters gives  considerable value to any statements  he  may  make,j/v,regard   to an  industry .with  which he has taken the pains to thoroughly inform himself.    One of these  is the subject of gold and copper milling in B. C, in which   Mr.   Waterlow  and a few of his friends became interested some five years ago,   aiid  since  that time he.'has paid three lepgthy visits  tothe province, personally   inspecting  tlie claims which they' have  acquired,  visiting all the largest mines and smelters ih.Sputhern 13. C, and thoronghly  looking into the whole question   from  a business standpoint. '.  The result of their first investment  in B._C. mineral claims, was the formation of the'H. C. (Rossland: and  Slocan) Syndicate, which company has  devoted, during the last two years,  most of its attention to the Snowshoe  group of propertjes. in the JJoiiridary  district, which have since been formed  into a -subsidiary, enterprise, ; Mr.  Waterlow has bri.ught back with him  this year a. collection of charming  sketches and excellent photographs of  scenes in the Rossland and Boundary  mining districts, which enabled our  representative to appreciate, far better  than is possible from any verbal description, the extensive mining oper.ir  tions now being carried on in these  camps.  Snowshoe Surface Work.  The Snowshoe property is being develop d by a series cf open quarries,  which are connected by tram-lines  with the large ore bins the company  has constructed on the side of the main  track of the C. P. R- line, from which  men are able to load a car in under  five minutes. On this properly the  ore is not sorted, but is simply blasted  in the quarries and, falling by gravitation through shutes cut in the mountain to the tunnels below, drops into  the hand-cars, from whence it is pushed to the ore bins; there is no handling of the ore al all and, owing to its  selt-fluxinc nature, if it were sent to  the (Jranby works, it could within 48  hours of the ore being run into the cars,  be smelted and the matte converted  into blister copper.  Mr. Waterlow was asked to state  the cost of smelting the ore of his company, but this he excused himself from  doing at present, though we understood  that the entire cost of mining by quarrying, with freight and treatment in shipping large quantities, would come out  about $4.00 a ton, and he furthher  volunteered the information that, up  to October 4th, the mine had shipped  9,000 tons of ore.  It is understood that, when the new  electric hoist to the main shaft is completed and installed, and another long  railway spur to the long tunnel below  the main line is completed, arrangements will be made for commencing  much larger regular shipments, which,  it is hoped, will be early in the spring,  of from 500 to 1,000 tons per day,  which, upon the present basis of costs  and price of copper, should yield a  handsome profit on the issued capital  of the company.  Boundary's Advantages.  The    great  advantages  which   the  Boundary  mines    possess,   compared  I with those in Rossland, was very ably  explained by Mr. Waterlow, with the  assistance of a number of very interesting photographs, wherein he showed  how, iu addition to the heavy cost of  raising ore in the Rossland mines, as  compared with the quarrying system  in the Boundary, the ore, when taken  to the smelter had to be stacked on  caiefull) erected piles for roasting, en-  lain.ng much additional labor and  expei s.* and occupying from 30 1040  days. It is then to be loaded on to  the cars by a steam shovel and carried  to the smelter wjiere, owing to its re-  fiactoty nature, a large percentage o<  limestone has to be added to each  ton of ore for fluxing purposes and the  further elimination of the sulphur necessitates a second roasting in calcines.  This partly accounts, lor the great difference, which exists between the costs  of smelting Rossland ores and these'6)  the 'Boundary distrsct, and indeed, the  cost of mininji, -.stoping, and raising  ore'from dee]) shafts^ such as those of  the Rossland mines, is necessarily doiie  at a gieater cost than the open quarrying of the liouudary mines, such as the  Snowshoe, Knob Hill, Old Ironsides,  and the Mother Lode.  Mi. Waterlow was asked hi; opinion'-  of the mining condition in these two  mining camps, and he said, in regard  to the.Boundary:' "The-' enormous,ex-  tent of the ore bodies* and their great  fitixibilily ensures a ''.permanent, and  profitable industry and, still more so,  should we succeed-in.persuading the  provincial government'Jto, see the in*  justice of their preseit ? per cent miner'  al t.ix, which weighs' nibst unfavorably  on low grade mines, and, if we can  induce the C. P. R. to foster the industry, instead of strangling it by levying the heaviest freight rates which  they consider each individual mine can  stand", In regard to the latter point  he mentioned that before leaving Canada he thoroughly went into this question with Sir. Thomas Shaughnessey,  and is in hopes that the president of  this great railway company will grain  the lower rates asked for.  Mr. Waterlow is evidently more than  ever impressed with, the great possibilities of the Boundary district and has  come back, with facts ��� and figures,  shewing what can be accomplished with  these mineral deposits, given ample  capital and sound management. He  is of opinion that the -/Snowshoe can  earn a.fair profit on its capital for a  number of yearson aivoutput of 1,000  tons a day���which1 we ".understand it is  the definite intention 61 the company  to attain, and it seems not improbable  that Mr. Waterlow aiid his friends inay  eventually lake aji even more promiii;  ent part jn (lie development of Souh  em B.C. than any oilier group ot Eng  lish capitalists.        -.-���.    .*        ���  EASTERN  Townships Bank  ESTABLISHED I 859.

M01II.KR, flenernl 'Agent,  430 Riverside Ave., Spokane, Wash  X was 10 he a very great event-  twelve bulla  were  to  make their  entry, and some famous Spanish  'liull-fiffliters  were  lo  prove   their  prowess, and the King was to be  there, and Portugal's handsome Queen.  Out along the white, dusty roads, on  past tlie outskirts of the town where  olives  and  tig-treeR  peeped over   the  etone    walla,    and    occasional   palms  renred their tall stem6���all hurry, rush  and bustle, until at last the open dusty  plain was reached, and 'before ua, like  i a modern Coliseum, rose    the   great,  massive arena of.the Hun Ring.  How like the Coliseum, though, In  weak architecture, was the building;  and all the mass of sightseers pressing  on to their different corridors���the poor  to the sunny Bide, the richer to that In  shade.  Inside were the great arcades under  the arches, and the wide nights of steps  to the various tiers of seats or iows of  boxes.-'... ;'���;��������� .,'..'y       ''-.'���  Up we went to where our ticket told  me, was the fauteull allotted to uf  (No; 106, .first "flla"); a good position  we saw as we entered the tier, and al  a "coup d'oell" the whole vast arena  was before us. Beneath was the level  ring where Two would, appear; on our  left the King's box, a Mauresque canopy In blue nnd gold, and draped In red  and gold velvet. On our right and left,  on this shady side of the arena, the  boxes are hung with! bright draperies  of blue, gray, aiid yellow, setting oft  the gay dresses of the ladles fanning  themselves In the boxes with tiny little  Portuguese fansy ;  At ;!ast a.roar goes up from some IB,-  000 throats���the arena will hold 20,000,  but It Is not packed���and then exactly  opposite us enter all the toreadors���that  Is, all who take part In the fight. Ca-  vallleros (or picadors, aa the Spanish  call them),; bandarllheiros, furcadosr  arid the assistants dressed In rich Georgian costume���In red - and blue satin  and velvet, with plumed flat hats.  Two cavaliers mounted upon two  magnificent steeds, very unlike the  wretched animals ridden Into the ring  to be slaughtered at a Spanish bullfight; a dozen bandarllheiros and a  dozen furcados and the assistants, all  in their gay costumes, make a brilliant  show, on the smooth, arena. ; The crash  of music, the roar of the populace, and  the brilliant spectacle send the Portuguese blood to fever heat; and quickly,  after salutations to the King or President;'all the toreadors retire and one  horseman enters alone. A signal If  given, ^the doors are thrown open, and  in rushes a fine black bull. Like an  arrow he makes for the horseman, who  leaps aside; but Toro is after him, and  chases him round the ring. With a  deft movement, just as the bull's horn-  nearly reach the horse's flanks, the  cavalier swerves and plants a dart It  the bull's shoulders; the matadors rusl  in, and distract the bull's attec.tlor  with their red cloaks. The bull no  longer cares for horse or man; the red  rag is his enemy> and he goes for It,  and tosses and paws it and tramples on  It until It is snatched from him, and s  bandarilhelro stands before him,  watches him; and leaps aside when  Toro tries to toss him.  At last, maddened, the bull rushes al  his tormentor, who rates to the barrier of the arena, but halts there; and  at the moment the bull's horns seem  to touch him, plants his two decorated  darts well In the bull's shoulders and  leaps the barrier. But the bull leaps  if ter him���half his black body is over,  50me of the assistants leap into tlie  arena at the safest side; but.Toro fails  ind falls back inside the arona. to starl  ;o hla feet ngaln and rush for the mata-  Jors, who advance with their cloajce to  draw him toward them.  It Is these red cloaks that, prove how  dull Is Toro In his rag-e. The matador  holds the red cloak at arm's length, the  jull rushes at It���never at" the man  holding It���and the matadors pass the  cloak over his head as he strives to gore  It; the bull turns and goes for It again,  seemingly oblivious that a man is moving It. Very agile and dexterous arc  the matadors; but there seems no dan  ijer to them, so wholly Is the bull occupied with the cloak.  Not so the bandarllheiros. To face t  rushing bull even with padded horn?  until his hot breath Is in your face, anc  his horns lowered for the toss;, to plan  darts .scarcely two feet long In hii  shoulders, and leap aside ere the tost  Is given, is a feat of courage, greal  swiftness and agility; and mighty Is thf  shout from the vast crowd when thi'  is done deftly and neatly, and the barb*  stick, well in the bull's tough hide. As  the bulls get tired out with their tormentors, a group of eight or ten tame  bulls, with long tube-like bells, are lei  into the arena. These encircle the wild  bull that at once Is tamed; and these  trained bulls trot him out of the cltcle  to his den, and a fresh bull is then introduced.���James Baker in "Alnslee's  Magazine."  A  "The Book Booster."  VACANT niche In contemporary  ���periodical literature,, says , the  "LIteiary Digest," is tilled by th��  ''Book Booster," which Is edited by  "Mr. Crltlcus Flub-Dubbe," and published by "Josh, Gosh & Co.." In Evans-  ton, 111, Its purpose, as It is circful to  inform the reader on Its first page, is  to "boo&t bookst���our own and others,"  with the distinction that "the books  published by Josh, Gosh & Co. will be  boosted without reference to the number of pounds sold, while the publication* of other houses will be boosted  only when they have passed the dead  tine, which Is fifty thousand pounds."  The book boosted In this particular  Issue Is "Faggots oft Empire,'' by Miss  Bertha Bosh. "Miss Bosh," we are told  from the "Editor's Hocking Chair," "Is  only fifteen years old, but Is extremely  bright for her age, She Is a Chicago  girl, and has never traveled farther  than Oconomowoc, which makes her  literary feat all the more remarkable.  For 'Faggots of Empire' Is a story of  the reign of Charlemagne, and the author betrays a singular acquaintance  with the local color of those times." Indeed, her narrative "contains more  facts than the histories."   Moreover:  "The cloth used In binding the first  edition would, If stretched end to end,  reach from Chicago to Evanston.  Placed side by side the pages would  rench from Chicago to Minneapolis,  Smeared thinly, the Ink used wo-uld  cover four townships. Ten million cock-,  loaches could subsist for six months on  the binder's paste employed. Set up  side by side, the Individual letters In  the text would reach from San Francisco to the Hawaiian Islands. And  the hot air employed tn boosting the  book would float ten thousand balloons."  ^Another Interesting literary an-  uvuiicement Is made to the effect that  "Josh, Gosh & Co. have been appointed  Western selling agents for the forthcoming book of Mr. Ernest Thompson-  Seton (formerly Scion - Thompson),  which is to be titled 'Cheap Thompsons  I Have Known.' " The "Book Booster"  Is replete with touching poems and  thrilling serials, and "Tlie Stovepipe of  Navarre," a blood-curdling "Romance  of Sword and Cloak," by Miss Poeta  Pants, quite puts In the shade all current literary efforts along the same  line.

ONDERFTJL stories are told  of the powers of the Hindu  fakirs.   Careful attention to  their tricks   haa  not   discovered   their   secret   with  any certainty, but Captain James Parker, the English traveler, who.has just  returned from a tour of India, gives il  us his belief  that   hypnotism   is  the  means by which they accomplish their  moat startling Illusions.   One Incident  .vhich he describes seems to bear out  his view.  The trick which Is acknowledged to  be the greatest of these Hindu mystic  performances, says Captain Parker,  ind the one that has been described  by trustworthy persons too often to be  doubted, ts the one In which the fakir  hrows a ball of twine into the air  tbove him, until it disappears from  ,ight, The loose end of the string he  holds In his hand, and after the boy  i.sssistant has climbed up the string until he too, is out of sight, the fakir  lltnself follows, with a knife between  his teeth.  Th�� opectators, surprised when both  joy and man climb out of sight, are  lorrJfled when the boy's severed head,  ���rms> and legs, followed by the trunlt,  fall to the ground, and the man slides  down close behind. Their astonishment  ��� Increased ivhen the laklr gathers the  severed members and restores the boy  to life.  Well, I saw this performance once,  uid once I didn't "ee it; and the latter  jxperlence was more wonderful than  che other. I had some London friends  visiting me, and after having left them  for a few minutes on the veranda ot  my bungalow, I saw, as I was returning, the same fakir and his assistant,  whom I had seen perform the trick,  -.landing about forty feet in front of  my friends, apparently preparing to  begin a performance. As I was about  as tar behind the natives as my friends  were in front of them, and had not  been observed, I stood quietly where I  was.  The man ,placed a drawn knife be-  twfen his teeth, took the usuil ball of  twine In his tight hand, made a motion  as If throwing It Into the air, and  then stood perfectly quiet. My friends  on the veranda were looking Into the>  upper air with astonishment on their  faces, which in a minute turned to a  100k of horror as their eyes came back  to the ground. In another minute their  countenances lighted up with pleasure,  and ��hey applauded roundly.  They could not say enough about the  wondei ful petforniatice they had seen,  and they wete astonished beyond measure when I told them I had been as  near the fakir as they, and had seen  nothing of what had so wonderfully  impressed them.  If that was not hypnotism, what was  it?  Captured by the Pie-rates.���"Judga."  Complimentary.  He���'My people are bothering me to  marry Miss Mayford.  She���You'd be very lucky If you did.
