A Lost Cross  ,, In collecting. mementos of the  Napoleonic invasion, says a dispatch to the Vancouver Province/  for the centenary celebrations in  Moscow, next - year,  attention was  c  drawn to the memoirs  of the Count  de Segur and other French contem-  porariess regarding the fate- of the  great cross   of >'Ivan  Valiky, v the  great church which dominates  the  Kremlin.  ' Napoleoni  had  it pulled  down, believing it  to be solid gold",  intending to have it placed over the  Dome des Invalides, in Paris.     He  was prompted   to this  act by, a desire to punish the Russians, for setting fire   to  the city,   especially as  the cross was popularly supposed to  have a  legendary connection   with  the greatness of Russia.  :. With \ .enormous    difficulty    the  cross,.measuring sixteen, feet, was  brought  down,   and   according to  Segur had  to be abandoned on the  march   to   Smolensk,   being   sunk  along  with a quantity of other impedimenta in  Lake  Semlevo.   The  lake having been recently drained a  careful'search,\was\ made,    which  brought  to light   innumerable  remains   of ������ dead   horses,   harness,  carts; uniforms, etc., but no trace of  the cross.        " "       '���*  , Letters published- in the Ncvoe  Vremya argue that it never; left  Moscow, but was  buried under the  j j .  wreckage of the Kremlin caused by  the blowing up of its buildings at  NapOjeon's pom mand. The reatgold  cross remained undetected on one of  the * churches which escaped detraction. ^  WHEREAS five years ago the word Zam-Buk  was unknown in Canada, aiid��am-Balc is to-day  admitted to be the finest cur�� for skit* injuries'  and  -f-     *��   f\  AND WHEREAS it has been represented fo  as that there are! still some good Canadians, and  even some mothers and heads of families who  have not yet tried this great balm, we hereby  offer a REWARD of one free trial box of  Zam-Buk to every person who has not yet tried  this wonderful balm i  PROVIDED they send by mail to lis this  proclamation together with one-cent stamp to  pay return postage of such box:  AND FURTHER PROVIDED that ttw  address such application to bur offices at  Toronto.

The ' Provincial  government have certainly done more than  their share, principally through   the  efforts of our representative at Victoria,  Ernest Miller, and  under ordinary    circumstances    everything  would have turned out satisfactorily,  but unfortunately, we are face to face  with the extraordinary Instead, apjd  this circumstance might weigh with  Mr. Miller if the matter is brought  to his attention.  The Nelson Daily,News,   which  some time ago1 took us  to task for  our * ignorance   of   Canadian   geography,   has   theLi following  in   its  issue of October^ 3rd,   under-the  heading   "Tragedy will not be repeated. "     "One1 serious' oversight  the  inspector made,  was taking no  shotgun  along with him.   If he had  a shotgim  he could have got "ter-  magent."    We frankly confess  our  failing in Canadian geography, and  as    far  as  zoology    is   concerned,  we advance the same plea. \ Neverr  theless  we    have  scanned   certain  tomes in  an , endeavor to discover  what sort of being a   "termagent"  is, but with   ill  success.    The provincial game list leaves us as ignorant  as ever and   we   fail  to   find it  under the  category  of fish.     The  nearest approach   to the word "termagent" is   "termagant" which we  discovered  in a  book  compiled by  one, Webster.    Now,   can it be  at  alf possible that the gallant major  expects the wayfarer in our northern  wilds to feed on such a delicacy as  this, or is the Daily News as ignorant of ornithology as they represent  the Phoenix Pioneer to be on Canadian geography.   ��b   WE LEAP IN SWEATERS  ' ���   ������" -.  .-���-'        .   \  ���    -. :    ���   ���  ���  Our line is. too extensive to describe here, but come in  anld look them over.  , '-''    '"���' * "��� ���  MENS GOODS-SPECIALTY  Our line of Men's Goods is equal to that carried by  any, s,tbre in* Southern British Columbia, and our  prices as low as any, quality considered. ���  SEE OUR WINDOW.

It is ' not. high1  general yield, says a Vancouver paper,   but  the  numerous   places  in  which the mills  are being installed,  which just now loom up attractively.  Scarcely   a  northern,, newspaper  can be picked up  that does riot tell  of a  movement   to  install  a  new  quartz mill:     Fairbanks has two or  more; Chena the same.    Nome also  has a number in   the country tributary.    Chandler  shipped in  a large  mill this  season.    Dawson   is now  doubling the  capacity of the stamp  mill on Victoria gulch.     On Indian  river is  another,   being  used   this  season.    A   movement is on foot to  place a mill or. two on Dublin gulch;  on the   upper  Stewart, tributary to  Dawson.      Skagway   has   a   well-  developed   movement on  foot to install a mill immediately.   All up aud  down  tbe Alaskan   coast  are  little  i*  mills pounding but the gold, and  getting returns. Atlin is making  some showing. Up Portland canal,  virtually the border of southern  Alaska, are other mills.  The famous Tread well is an ex-  ample of what might grow from  these little mills. The Treadwell  had a modest beginning with scarcely more than enough stamps to  dignify the affair with the name of  mill, yet today Treadwell is the best  known mill in the world, with a  ,tremendous. output from Jow-gradje  rock.   ��,   A Strange Letter  A remarkable letter appeared last  week in the   Cranbrook Herald, apparently  written   by   a   Chinaman,  signing   himself  L.   N.   Wing   On.  In "it the writer exposes a shocking  state of affairs  in   connection  with  the Canadian   Customs  Service on  the coast.    According to the letter,  bribery and corruption are rampant;  names are freely mentioned, and it is  very doubtful if a more rotten state  of affairs  existed  even within   the  confines  of   the  Turkish    Empire.  The letter concludes with a warning  that if any harm should come to the  writer, all  blame  should be laid at  the door  o3f a  certain   merchant of  Victoria,   named Wong Wa, whom  he also accuses of being the leader  of a gang of opium smugglers.  ��^��  'PHONE A10.

A Powerful Torpedo  The British navy is equipped with  a torpedo, said to be, effective at  10,000 yards, or nearly three times  the range of the most powerful projectile now used in the United  States navy, according to information brought back to Washington  by an American naval officer, who  recently discussed developments in  gunnery, torpedo craft and the relative method of target practice in  the British and American navies,  with some British naval experts.  The existence of this torpedo has  been kept a profound secret, and it  was only by a mere slip by a British  expert that it became known.  ..���,......  . ..���,���..,���������������. -  Canada    consumed    205,820,851  cigars, 1909-10; 1908-9, 192,105,371  Ay S.
