Our gooel neighbors in Kaslo aro
looking with expectant eye towards
the Liirdeau country unci are only
waiting for further development nnd
transportation facilities to make a big
bid for the trade of the district. They
have a perfect right to it, if they cm
get it, and are neit at all the kind of
people to let any "opportunity slip th.it
will tend to bring it their way. If
they should happen to get a railroad
built connecting Kaslo with the Lai-
deau, before the Lardeau line is constructed, there is not the least doubt
that they will attract f heir way a gootl
deal of business that now coiiies to
Revelstoke and having once* got it will
hold it. This place has enjoyed a
monopoly of the Lardeau trade so far.
It is a vt*ry important item in the
prosperity and development of the
town at the present time. Our Big
Bc*nd business, with which nobody can
interfere, may overshadow it in importance at some future time, .lust now
it would hardly weigh much in comparison with the Lai-dean.

The Lardeau country has been prospected this year more thoroughly than
ever. Of actual development however
there is little more to, note than before. The Home Payne people have
done a good deal in the way of wagon
road and U'ail building, which will
help the country out, but will not tend
to niakc,the Broadview'or Silver Oup
a dividend payer at present, and a
couple or so of dividend paying mines
would push things along amazingly.
The Lardeau is not'a poor man's
country. It has-wonderful surface
indications, but they require the assistance of capital before they can be
developed. Nothing of any importance
for instance ib likely" to be attempted
withqnt better shipping-anil transportation facilities than exist at present.
A railway is required - to be really
effective. 'There is -more than one
charter-at present. .It is a'matter of
vital importance to the people of Revelstoke that the first) line built shall'
penetrate the coitntrjCfrom ' this end.
A show of activity on our.p.irt this
spring might have just^ the road we
want under construction-now. That
opportunity was missed. But it may
not be too late for us to take up tho
mutter even now.
Regular meetings are held in the*

E. Adair, W.M.       T. J. Graham, R. S.
The item given in* another column
from a Nelson paper to the elfect that
it is the intention of some member of
the opposition to take the responsibility of calling a meeting of the oppon-
Revelstoke is interesting,* though it
lacks any corroboration, official or
otherwise. There are plenty of people
in Revelstoke opposed to the Turner
government, to all of whom the statement will come as "a piece of news.
However the- Herald heartily endorses the idea anel hopes it will come
to fruition. At snch a gathering a
real programme worth fighting for
���night be drawn up and adopted. This
province wants something better than
a string of platitudes and promises to
do better than Mr. Turner for a policy.
A de*finite plan for the redistribution
of the electorate; a definite plan for
the reorganization of the expenditure*;
definite schemes for future railway
extension and land tenure; not promises merely of an honest administration
but a promise of measures thut will
render political corruption nnd dishonesty impossible ; these principles
would form a platform to work for.
Butif we are simply going to be asked
to subscribe to a collection of petty
changes of detail and pledges - of good
conduct when in oflice with a view of
putting the Island domination in the
province out, in order to let the Fraser
Valley control in, then ns'far ns the
Kootenay is concerned, the HeRjYld
rather fails to see where the interest
in the approaching contest comes in.
Police Court
Before J. D. Oraham, S. M.
On Monday John Whalen, of Vancouver, wtis charged with assaulting
Const. Jas. Jones, a C. P. R. detective.
The assault took place in the Hotel
Revelstoke lastFrielay. The constable
was sitting iu the office Ieaniug back
in his chair smoking his cigar,* when
Whalen, wh'o was drunk, came behind
him and hit him a heavy blowjWith
his fist on tlie nose. There was no
defence, the prisoner pleading guilty,
hut that being drunk he did not know
what he was doing. Fined $50 and
costs. $101,25, or thr.;e months inipris-
onment with hard labor. A. G. M.
Spragge appeared for the prosecution.
In North Kootenay���The Halcyon Hot
Springs���Contains More Lithium to
the Square Inch than any Springs on
the Continent.
While mining matters are principally occupying the attention of Unpeople of Noith Kootenay, the fact
tbat there are numerous other valuable resources in the district should
not be overlooked. Various points in
the United States have derived fame
tind prosperity from the medicinal
qualities of their waters, and it is now
an established fact that the mineral
springs of the Upper Arrow, lakes
possess the health-giving ingicdients
to a greater extent than any springs
yet discovered on the American 'continent. At the Halcyon Hot Spiing*.
a small village is rapidly growing np,
and will continue to increase as the
knowledge of the curative qi.alitit-s of
the waters circulates. About half-ti
dozen new cottages have been erected
and are nearly ready for occupation.
A very complete; and elaborate bathhouse is now in course of construction.
When finished it will be the finest
thing of its kind in Canada. The contractors for the work are Messrs.
Ka.ike & Williams aiid-wb.at_th.ey are
turning out is a.pretty and complete
in its way as anything that can be
found at the fashionable watering
places on the Atlantic seaboard.     �����
The situation at Halcyon Hot
Springs is ideally lovely. _The_ Sanitarium overlooks one of the most
beautiful reaches of the Upper Arrow
lake which at that point is about three
miles wide. Steamers call twice daily
aud there are always crowds of arrivals and departures. Many of the arrivals hobble clown the gangway on
crutches, but n.iry a crutch is taken
away. Iu fact there is a pile of discarded crutches lying around that will
make excellent kindling some cold
night this next winter..
It is understood that the Halcyon
will shortly pass into the_hands of ah
incorporated company of which Dr.
Brett will be the chief executive
officer, a "feature that in itself���is
significant of success for -the shareholders." The business manager at the
Halcyon Hot Springs is Mr. A. H.
Mogridge, who has such a host of
duties to attend-to, while the construction work is going on, that it is
really quite wonderful that he can_
find the time which he does in looking
after the comfort of the Halcyon
- While the Halcyon is a health i-esoi t
in the first instance, it ;s also a most
delightful camping ground for-an���idle
week. Heaps of idle people from the
Slocan and Tiail Creek are to be found
theie. They take tho baths and drink
the water. When they get tired of
the water, an interview with Mr.
James Rutloy. who used to minister to
the wants of suffering humanity at
the Arlington Hotel at-Tiail usually is
attended with satisfactory"results. At
the present time as health and pleasure
resort there is no place in the Koot-
enays that can compare with the
Halcyon springs, and when all the improvements now in progress are completed there will ho few places 011 the
American continent better equipped
for a man who i.s 11 little run-down to
"lay off" anil recruit. '
Apart fiom its merits as a temporary stopping place on the highway 'of
life the Halcyon has a direct merchantable value in the quality of its
waters. The springs contain lithium
to an extent beyond that of any other
known natural waters. In the various
popular, so-called mineral waters that
are recommended by physicians, the
particular ingredient._thafc is looked
for is lithium. The springs at Halcyon
are full of ���.lithium. Some day when
the trade of Kootenay increases,'
aerated Halcyon water will take the
place of the litiiia waters that conic
from the Buffalo springs in West Virginia, the .White Sulphur, the Wan-
kisha, and half a dozen other places on
the United States side of the line. The
owners of all these havo made large
fortunes. And there i.s no doubt to
suppose that the fortunate owners of
these far mrire desirable hot springs
from a medical point of view in North
Kootenay will not find them an equally lucrative kind of property.

A Wagon Road and Stage  Route from
Edmonton to the Yukon.
The Great Canadian Development
and Mining Company, contemplates a
gigantic enterprise���the building of a
wagon ro.id from Edmonton to the
gold fields. In this work the company
has not only the hearty co-operation
and support of the Dominion government and the Canadian Pacific Railway, biit it is backed by ample capital
to push the work to completion. Capitalists of Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, whose wealth is estimated tit
millions, sue back of the scheme, the
capital is ready, the chaiter secured
and Mr. Powell has been appointed
manager of the enterprise.
The survey party started from Edmonton about, the 1st of September
and will work ail winter building
bridges, stables and stores. None but
men employed will be allowed to go
with the surveyors. The plan is to
build one road by the way of Liard
river, o'ne ot the main branches of the
McKenzie river, and another by way
of Pelly river, which is one of the headwaters of the Yukon.
Stables will be built so as to provide
passengers with relays nf horses every
12 miles, thus enabling them to make*.
100 miles per day. On some portions
of the road it may be necessary to use
reindeer, and possibly dogs will be
used in some of the higher altitudes up
Stores will be provided at frequent
intervals and will be well provisioned.
The company will give a man transportation and food for one year for
$500. The plan is to issue a certificate
on the coupon plan good at the stores
for food, which will be negotiable.
-The latter feature it is thought will bo
'especially attractive, as the companies
now contracting to take men into the
diggings will not make the agreement
transferable. Under the new arrangement contemplated a traveller who
wishes to turn back nee;d not lose his
entire investment, but may dispose of
his food certificate to the best advantage. . .-
The Gold'Find on Gainer Creek
Tbe Knotenaian in its bust issue contains an interview with the Lade boys,
the locators of the now famous gold
claims on Gainer creek.' It contains
the following description of the claims:
"The claims, which are known as
the Olive Mable. jLittle Fred, Foundation, Goldcnville and Annie L.,
were located on July 20th. Their loca-
tio"tris"at"tlie-"heiicl=^ifith"e" Little""Dun="
can, on the Duncan slope just over
from the head of Gainer creek. The
distance along the divide from the
head of Hall creek is about eight
miles, and it is about- the same distance from the claims to the main
Duncan river. The Badshot lies about
one-half mile to the south und about
000 feet lower.
sThey have numerous small quartz
leads on the five claims, besides a big
blanket lead which lies below and
seems to cut under the smaller ones.
The lead from which the rich gold ore
is taken is about 12 inches wide all
pay. It can only be "traced a short
dist.-ince as it runs under a glacier.
The formation is slate anil the leads
cut it tit right angles. On the Olive
Mable, where the ore is being tnken
out, a shaft is,down about eight feet.
About five Ions were taken out there,
two of which are now at tho sampler.
The boys are preparing to return.
They expect to take out one or two
tons which hy being carefully sorted
will run $5,000 to the ton. Only one
of the several leads have been pros-
pecteel to any extent biit the quartz in
all is identical. They have had assays
of $100 free and $520 base from the
croppings. A half dozen assays have
given upward of $3,000 but $11.3-10 is
the highest. That these claims are
tributary to Kaslo is of much importance to this section. Mr. V. F. Lade
said last night that if they could get
down to Duncan river in eight miles,
which he believes practicable and even
easy, they would make that their
supply point. The proposed Kaslo &
Duncan River railway will pass up the
Duncan valley, within eight miles of
the property.' The find may prove of
great assistance in securing a wagon
road to open up the H-tll Creek and
Little Duncan mines.

PROF. EMMONS THEORY  A clear, scientific and authoritative explanation of tho geological conditions of the Clondike and  neighbouring gold-bearing rocks is  given by Prof. Emmons.   He says:  The real mass of golden wealth  in Yukon remains as yet untouch-  ed.    It lies in   the virgin  rocks,  from which the particles found iu  the river gravels now being washed by the Clondike miners have  been washed by the erosion ot  streams.    These   particles,   being  ���������heavy, have been doposited by the  streams, which earned the lighter  matter onward  to the ocean, thus  forming by gradual  accumulation  a   sort of auriferous  concentrate.  Many of.tbe bits, especially in certain local-���������>". are big enough to  be called   mtggets.     In spots the  gravels  are  so rich that,   as   we  have all  heard, many  ounces   ot  the yellow metal have been  obtained  from  the  washing  oE    a  single  panful.     That is   what  is  making the  people  so  wild-the  prospect of picking money out of  the dirt by the handful literally.  But  all this, is merely  the   skimming of grease from the pot; the  soup remains, and   precious rich  soup it is.   The bulk oE the wealth  is in the rocks of the liills, waiting  only for proper machinery to take  it out.    For you must remember  that the gold was originally stored  in veins of the  rocks, which are  of  an exceedingly ancient formation.   Nobody can say how many  millions of  years ago the  metal  " was put"th"ere-~butrit-must-have  been au   enormously   long    time  back.    The  streams   wore   away  the  rocks,    carrying   gold    with  them, and this process continued  for ages, making rich deposits of  rich, gold-bearing gravels.     Eventually these dei"osits were themselves transformed  into   rock���������a  sort  of    conglomerate  in  which  pebbles small and big are mixed  with what was once sand.   Today  ,    the strata composed of conglomerate are of immense extent and unknown thickness.     The formation  closely resembled that 'jf the auriferous "banket" or pudding stone  of the South African gold  Belt's;  but  the South   African  puddiug  stone was in far remote antiquity  n sea beach, whereas the Yukon  formation is a  deposit made by  rapid streams.    In a later epoch  the  stream  continued   to   gnaw  away at the hills, bringing down  more gold and leaving it behind in  the gravels of their bottom".   It  is   these    comparatively  modern  rivers which are  responsible for  the  pay  dirt    of    the   Clondike  district  and   of   all  that region.  Naturally because  it was easily  got at and  worked,   the  miners  have struck the surface alluyium  first.     The  streams   at    various  times    have    followed   different  courses, and it is in the gravels of  the dry and disused channels that  the  gold  miners  dig  with  such  fabulous profit.   You will observe  from what I have said that the  gold of that region exists under  three widely different conditions���������  in the gravels, in the conglomerate  or  pudding    stone   and   in   the  ancient rocks of the hills.   When  the modern stream deposits now  being worked  are  used  up,   the  miner can tackle the conglomerate  which   represents  the   gravel   of  ages ago.   Finally, when 'they are  provided    with     the     requisite  "    machinery,  they will   be   in   a  ���������!-*���������"  -' ���������-'  Next month we will have a talk with you about general  Dry Goods  Something else you all want to hear about, which is  Carpets  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson.  position to attack the masses of  yellow wealth that are stored in  the veins of the mountains. At  present we- can hardly consider  that the first bite has been taken  of the golden feast which the  Yukon offers to hungry man.  A story is told of Charles  Dudley Warner, the editor of the  New Library of the World's Best  Literature, now issuing from the  press. It was back in the "sixties'  when through The Hartford  (Conn). Press he was writing  vigorous appeals to the patriotism  of the State, that oneof the compositors entered the sanctum and  announced his determination to  enlist. Pleased that he should  have made a convert in his own  office, Mr. Warnei launched out on  the subject of duty to one's  country. "Oh, it isn't that,"  remarked the comp., "but I'd  rather be shot than try to set anymore of your copy."  in full: ���������' Men should be sober, strong  and healthy. They should be praeJti-  cal men, able to adapt themselves  quickly to their surroundings. Special  care should be taken to see that their  lungs are sound, that they tire free  from rheumatism and rheumatic tendency, and that their joints, especially  knee joints, are strong and have neyer  been weakened by injury, synovitis or  other disease. It is also very import-  tiht to consider their temperaments.  Men should be of cheerful, hopeful  dispositions and willing workers. Those  of sullen, morose natures, although  they may be good, workers, are "very  apt, iis soon as the novelty of the  country wears oil", to become diss.itis-  tied, pessimistic tind melancholy."

Surgeon Gives Some  Useful Hints���������Diseases Miners Are  Subject To���������The   Kind   of Men to   Suit_the_Cpuntry_______ _^  Assistant Surgeon Wills was detailed for service with the detachment of  Mounted Police, who, under the command of Inspector Constantine, were  despatched to the Yukon in 1805. Mr.  Wills has made a report to the Government on the climate, mode of living  of the people iind diseases met with in  the. Yukon district, and the following  fa'cts are taken from his summary:  The climate generally is wet,anel the  rainfall in 1895 was heavy. The ground  is always swampy owing to the siow  evaporation, and it is only after several years of draining that" the ground  will become sufficiently dry to allow  the frost to go out. During the winter months the cold is intense, with  considerable,wind. Heavy mists rise  from open places in the river and settle down in the valley in calm weather.  This dampness makes the cold to be  felt much more.  The mode of living among the miners generally is not conducive to gooel  health. Their cabins, as a rule, aie 12  feet by 1-1 feet with walls 0 feet and  gables S feet in height. The ventilation is bad as a rule, iind the cabin is  generally very warm. Again, in tbe  summer the miners work hard for very  long hours sparing little; time for eating anel much less for cooking, and  often they only eat those things which  are cooked with little trouble. This  in the natural course of events, leads  to debility and sometimes to scurvy.  However, experience teaches, and the  old miners haye found out the truth  and therefore spare no expense in pro-  cuping the best and most varied outfit of food that can be obtained, fn  the matter '/of fresh vegetables and  fruits, cranberries and other wild fruit  grows in abundance, but the miners  are usually to busy to. pick them.  The following diseases are met with:  Dyspepsia, anaemia, scurvy, caused  by improperly cooked food, sameness  of diet, overwork, want of fresh vegetables, overheated and badly ventilated houses; rheumatism, pneumonia,  bronchitis, eutentis, crystitis and  other acute disease.", from iexposure to  wet and cold; -debility and chronic  diseases, due to excess. Dr. Wills  mentions that one case of typhoid  fever occurred in Forty Mile in 1805,  due probably to drinking water polluted with decayed vegetable matter.  In his report Dr. Wills makes some  remarks with a view to guiding the  authorities in their selection of members of the polire force for future  service in the Yukon. His observations will apply with equal pertinency  to miners and others who propose  seeking their fortune in these far  northern gold fields and therefore we  make no excuse for reproducing them  Monday; Tom Aikins stopped his  paper after paying up.

Throw in a sidewalk and  you have a city. Beefville was a city.  It had more houses ..than you could  count fingers on your two hands, and  a sidewnlK on which the Englishman  and all his dogs could pass together..  Once there "hivl been a boom in this  place. That, was over now. All that  it left to Beefville was a very lonely  saloon, a mayor and some telephone  posts. Tt was a quiet little place; in  tact itwas full of quietness. The -Englishman's dogs were the favourite  amusement; when they came down the  street Beefville stood at its door in ils  shirt sleeves and watched them; and  remarked that they were "mighty  knowing critters," and then followed  them down town to see where; they  were going. Pretty nearly the same  thing happened when the town heid  was driven home at night. The town  herd was lame and had only three  teats, but she was still a good cow and  the cause of endless gossip. The annual announcement that she was en-  cientc caused always the intensest  j feelings and the citizens took aii extra  ' drink on the strength of it."  The only man who seemed to have  no interest in these proceedings was  the mayor. The dignity of his position forbade him. Hence he was held  in great awe. But a day came when  the mayor went away "down east,"  and that broke Beefville's last link  with respectability. From then on it  went to the dogs���������the Englishman's  dogs.  And after that the deluge. It came  -in^ithe_=shape,_of__a__Ro_la___b___p__n_._ In  twelve months Beefville's own father  wouldn't have known it. You were  actually jostled on the street. Every  man that wasn't a millionaire was a  thousandaire, and everyone that  wasn't ii thousandaire was a fool.  There were twenty saloons instead of  one���������twenty, from the Victoria hotel,  where the. spittoons were cleaned every  day and the bat-tender called you "sir,'  to the Ttelleby house, where you spat  where you chose, where you were  called "boss," and where the women  were more ornamental than useful.  And still, as o������ yore, the original  citi'/.'ns foregathered at their old  saloon to discuss the town herd. One  eventful evening the new mayor was  pie'sent, but unusually silent. At last  he took his pipe from his mouth, spat  across the room, wiped his mouth on  tlm batik of his hand and said, "Boyp,  I reckon thar',5 a change, como over  this e-itv���������.1 sort's change, and what I  ?ay is that me, being as it were an  ollicious person, oughter to find out  what it's all about."  There was a long silence, in which  only the rumble of the street cars  could be beard.  Then one, bolder than the rest,  broke the awful stillness. He said, "I  gues������, boss, we don't dispute thar's a  change, but "  To what length the discussion would  have gone it's hard to say. Just then  the Kntrlishman entered���������and all his  dox=. lie waved a newspaper, he even  waved it in the mayor's face, and  ended up by telling him to read it.  I_fti.su re;l 7 anel with care the mayor  adjusted his glasses and took it up. It  was a six months old copy of the London Times. For a quarter of an hour  he read amid a deathly silence. Then  he laiel it down and in a' somewhat  shaky vi>ie;e* said, "Hoys, I reckon wi;  air a little behind band. This yer  paper t-ayn, it says, wall thar now it  savs thar's bin the richest find of gold  ever .seed, right outeieie Beefville.  Maybe that'." the carse of the change:  hereabouts."

A man nemed Taylor had a detachment, too, but fell dead  by Wolseley's side almost immediately.  AVolseley was severely wounded, v and  they "wanted to carry' him away, but he  refused. "Go on! Go-on! Go o"n, men!  Go on!"' he cried, and the enemy were  defeated. The brave young soldier lay  sick in the hospital for three months and  afterwards walked about on crutches.  He bad hardly recovered when he was  called to action in the Crimea, where,  ti week before the taking of Sebastopol,  he lost tbe sight of his right eye, anti  received the sear on his cheek which-is  visible to this day.    ,  ."We were losing a battalion a tiny  then," said Lord Wolseley.

Suddenly a hush, followed by n bullet,  came into the midst of the little group,  His companions fell dead, anel Wolseley  was carried lo the camp, his left cheek,  in liis own words, "lying on my jacket,*'  unil his face - riddled with stones -intl  bullets. .

Ho lost till ho bad, and lived in  dire distress for ten days on an almost  uninhabited const.  One of the best stories told by Lord  Wolseley is of the Zulu war, when Cete-  wayo was betrayed into his hands by  his own prime minister. Cetewnyo bad  hundreds of wives, but his conqueror  released all but throe, whom he sent  with tho chief in exile. Cetewayo felt  deeply tho separation, and pleaded  ngain and again for his wives. But Lord  Wolseley was obdurate. At last his  lordship wns to return to England, and  hearing of his intended departure, the  Zulu chief sent him a final message asking, pathetically, that if he would not  send lum any more wives, he would ttt  -least exch.iuge.tho three.he had for throe  others:  Lord AVolsc-ley's success is undoubtedly due to his unique nppronticesbin in  the art of war.

This is an exhaustive and most  interesting treatise: the author, Fred-  oiick Ij. Hoffman, is a statistician for  one of the largo insurance compunip. nf  the country, nnd his freed .in from prejudice or personal bias in the matter is  supposed lo he guaranteed by the fact  cP his German nativity. His conclusions  are based on tho most ample stulistie.til  information obtainable from n ctvut  variety of sources nnd tlet-y arc thus  summed   up:.  Nothing is more clearly hhown from  this investigation than that the Southern  black.man tit the-tiino of omiincipntinr.  was healthy in body and cheerful in  mind. -IIo neither-suffered inordinately  from disease, nor from impaired bodily  vigor. His industrial cap-ib.liUes tis a  laborer were not of n low order, nor  was the condition of servitude such as  to produce in him morbid conditions  favorable to mentnl disease", suicide or  intemperance. What are the condition*!  thirty years after? The pages of this  work give but one answer���������an auswer  which is a most severe condemnation of  modern n I tempts of superior races to lift  inferior races.to their own elevated position; an "answer so full of moaning that  it would seem criminal iiitlifferenre on  the part of a civilized people to ignore  it. In the plain language of the facts  brought together, the coloied race is  shown to be jm the downward grnds.  tending towni-d a condition in which  matters will be worse than they are now,  when disease will bo move destructive,  vital resistance still lower, when 1 ho  number of -births will fall below the  deaths, and gradual" extinction of die  race take place. ��������� ������������������ * ITiiltss a change  takes place, a change that will strike  at tho fundamental errors that underlie  the conduct of tho higher races toward  the lower, gradual extinction is only a  question of time.  We make no question that the vices of  civilization have fallen upon the emancipated negro with terrible force where1  adequate resistance was not in the nature of things to bo expected. But how  far is physical degeneracy duo to these  canses, and how far to oilier causes  which were operative prior to emancipation? The Augusta physician slates  that consumption was practically unknown among the colored people beteir-  the war, anil tho whole present alarming progrots of the disease is attributed  to tho act or condition of freedom. Now  it is true that consumption bas iucre*ase;el  among the --blacks in rcci'iii years, but  it is-not true that "the disease wa_*infrequent before"tho war. Mr. Hoffman  presents a table, derived, we suppose,  from reliable sources, giving tho death  rate from consumption among the two  races per 100,000 of population in Char  leston for a period before the war and  since:  Years       ' Wli.'to.

For nearly a. dozen ' years Cricton  Campbell has, lived almost entirely upon  baked bananas.

IIo tried them himself, and with such gooel results that he  has been a staunch advocate of thorn  ever since. . j  "Take ordinary bananas," said Mr.  Campbell to a New York Press reporter,  '"don't peel thorn, but cut the ends off  a ejiiurtcr of an inch, ' Then lay. them  On a tin platter, and without uny other  addition, bake them fifteen minutes in n  hut bake oven."  "When the bananas are soft the skin  will burst open like a baked apple. Then  turn thorn over so that tho under side  will become perfectly soft, and bake five;  minutes longer."  The bananas, according to Mr. Camp-  boll, should bo served extremely hot ami  on the sumo platter in which they were  bilked.

Not" a murder was committed, not a  pistol shot was heard, no murderous  looking knives were produced, no crying, whining, leading lady to-be seen,  and yet thi'",Shadow" of a Great City,"  by its strong contrasts, made; in a  legitimate manner, won the applause  of the big audience*, anil when the last  scene of all was "Sachetl with the  triumph of the true lovers, and " the  punishment of the two villains, thorough enthusiasm was aroused.so closely bad those present followed the  intricacies anel windings of the story.  Tt is highly probable that some member of tlie opposition will assume  authority and call a convention of _ all  those opposed to the present government to meet at Revelstoke at some  time in the immediate future, there to  formally organize a party that will  contest" the* next election with the  party in power. It can be seen with  half art eye that the oppositionists are  numerous, but it is also noticeable  that all their views tire not the same.  Organization,and speedy organization,  at That is an absolute necessity if a  fight of respectable proportions is to  be put up against the present government.���������Nelsem Miner.  ���������Spp.ikiny   of- the*,   two. quota tiojis.  usually given for lead and copper,  "broker's" tind "exchange" which  have no doubt been a good deal of  puzzle; to miiuy of this Herald's reader, the Spokesman-Review says in a  recent issue: "The exchange rjneita-  tion is tho real price. Tlie -brokers  have got together and fixed up a  method of naming a "brokers' price.'  which is really no price at all." If you  tusk a broker about it he will tell you  it is the: price for a large quantity. If  you 11 tier to buy at that price he will  tuli vou it is not the c-uln.itl figure,  but tht' price for large lots, tind if he  is pinned down closely In* will refuse  to sell tit. the price quoted.
