THE     BIG     BEND    COMING   TO  THE FRONT  VERY HIGH GRADE PROPERTIES  A Section Where Silver-Lead is Plentiful and Gold Copper "Ore "Abounds���������  A Bonanza in Carnes Creek��������� A Rich  But Narrow Vein  (I'rom Rossland Miner S3ptember 10)  " There will be a. riit.li oC mining  men and capitalists into thu Big Be nil  nliove llevelstoke next year, almost ns  gfe.it us that in Rossland in ISflo-OO,"  said ii mining man who had just  relumed from a visit lo that section.  " Thu Big Bend," ho continued, "has  been known as a, mining district for  more than 30 years. But in those days  placei" mining was the. attraction.  Prospectors went into the Big Bend  country Iiy the way of Seymour Pass  from Shuswap lake, and the discovery  ol'i-ii-h diggings on French, Smith and  McCulloch creeks attracted a hit of the  diggers from old Cariboo, v/heio' the  excitement had waned somewhat after  the stirring times of 1S5S 02. Steameis  pli.d'nn the- South Thompson river,  between Kainliiops and Shuswap'lake,  and one time, it was estimated that  there were' nearly 10,000 muii engaged  in plat-cr mining iu the Big Bend. It,  was stated that between four and five  iiiiirnius.."yere,tnki-ii,out during 1864-05  .but it was then, and still is, very difficult to g������t a correct statement as to  the amount of gold in nuggets or dust  taken from any placer diggings.  $10 A DAY NOT ENOUGH  , " The bteam.il- Forty-Nine made a  trip from the Dalles up the Columbia  river as -far as' the Toot of Death  rapids with supplies for the camp, but  was wrecki'd'bn a sunken vock at .-the  ���������lie.i'd.bf tlie.i'anyoii o'h her second trip.  Very few stopped iii the Bend after  (hi: diggings L-eat-eil to pay IjSlO'a day  per man, the nini.* successful ,ones  betuU-ing themselves to-New South  Wales, whicli was then the chief  gold producing district in the world,  Caribou having quieted down to deep  diggings.  CLKA~S'1_0 UP. SEVERAL THOUSANDS  " But Big Bond has never been  entirely deserted' since. On French  crock the Consolation company has  been at work for many, years with  varying success. Hydi-aulickinp; has  been carried on nn Coldstream. Smith  creek and other places, and individual  diggers' b=avf"T~"iirade^gVocl'"ii.iy~=oir  various creeks. Two fortunate diggers  were- Frank Vandall and Angus Beaton, who cleaned up several thousand  dollars in their placer ground at Gold  Hill some three years ago.,  FREE  ~_n.I~.lXO QUARTZ  "Several finds of free milling qjiartz  hnd been reported at this head cf  McCulloch creek, nnd one or two  claims were staked hy Gns .Lund nnd  others, but very little prospecting  took place previous to the Trail Creek  excitement of 1894-5.  Sir.VEIt-I.KAD PLENTIFUL  " Two or three years ago the people  of Kevelstoke began to wake up to  the fact that Big Bend was in no way  hehind Ihe mining sections of southern  Kootenny as a lode uiining country,  and on Carnes <"i eek and at the head of  Downie creek several good claims  were located. Galena was found in  several places, but. not of such high  grade as was then being reported  from the Slocan and Trout Lake districts. At Illecillewaet, the Maple  Leaf, L .nark, and some other silvor  properties had been worked in a desultory manner for y.ars, and when  these properties were taken in hand  by a company of capitalists things  began to look up in North Kootenay  milling matters.  THE ".VAVEHI-EY MINES  " At the head of Downie creek,  which flows into the Columbia, about  45 'miles north of Kevelstoke, the  Tangier and other claims now form  tho pioperty of the Waverley company. The ore is exceedingly rich  and large shipments are to be made  this coming winter by means of raw-  hiding to the Canadian Pacific railway  It is 20 miles to the railway at Albert  Canyon and over the. mountains all  that, lt i. probable that a waggon  road will be constructed by an easy  grade at Downie. creek to the Columbia river, wiiere it is the intention of  placing a steamer to run on the open  water to tho head of the canyon a  few    miles���������four,     I   believe.���������above  Uo.vulsloku. And in view of this  event, being an accomplished fact, the  government has just completed a  waggon rond from the town to the  head or the canyon.  ���������  OP LB-CO "PER OKE A HOUNDS  " It is only recently, however, that  the discovery lias been made that the  Big Bend abounds in gold-copper ores.  I saw one brought in from Carnes  creek, Keystone ni'.untain, Laforme.  creek, Ground Hog Basin and other  places in the Big Bend that is precisely  similar in appeaiance to the ores of  the Le Roi and War Kagle. Some of  it. from Carnes creek. Keystone mountain and Laforme creek was exceedingly i ich looking, but. of course, all  rich looking ores do not assay high,  especially surface ore.  NINE FEET OF SOLID OltE  "Ground Hog Basin i.s where the  famous Orphan Boy claim is situated,  and 1 was told up there that there  were a score of claims I hatgave higher  assays than the Orphan, although the  ore from that claim averaged higher  in gold than the majority of claims in  Trail creek. From Keystone mountain I saw some of the richest looking  ore 1 had ever met with, but the assay  did not bear out the richness. It was  chiefly iron, solid, heavy and bronzed.  The vein there is nine feet wide and  is solid mineral foi the wholo of that  width. The ore was taken at a depth  of only eiijht feet, .and I have no  doubt thin "if they go down they will  gej; gold instead of iron.  A CARNES CHEEK IJONjVN'ZA  "But it is to Carnes creek thai thu  attention of the public up lliere is now  directed. The. Carnes Creek Gold  Mining Company has been quietly at  work on their seven claims I'or over a  year, and they have some very rich  ore on tho dumps. They have two or  three grades, and the latest, assays in  the upper tunnel gave very high  values. W. Pellew Harvey, "assayer  of Vancouver, returned Sjj2:J0 in'gold  per ton from a sample sent to him,  and another sample assayed by Perry  Leake gave $14-1 per ton in gold. A  strange feature oL this ore is that it  carries only gold, no copper or silver,  although both these metals are found  bolh north and south of I he company's  property. Samples taken (rom the  dump as a general sample gave $58  per to;r Sn gold;  ���������������    ���������-���������-  -."      TEN INCHES OF $200 ORE   "' "   *"'  " The ore vein is four feet,-six in.  wide, and is found between a distorted  schist" and a .culi'-micii schist. The  vein' is composed of quint-, iron  pyrites and niispickel. On the foot-  wall is "ii seam of graphite, several  inches wide, and about the centre of  the vein is a, highly concentrated  chute of ore 10 inches in width, from  which the high values are oblaiue.l.  .The whole width ot the lode is well  mineralized. Tiie ore has been appre-  t iating in value as depth in the tiiiinul~  has been attained, which, as is well  known, is the most promising feature  that can be encountered in a mine.'  WILL SHIP THIS WINTI5II  " The upper tunnel is in 120 feet, and  a 20-foot i-i-O-Sfiil has shown up some  beautiful ore. One hundred feet  J .���������lo,w_^.thiSit.itmeli_,-iioUieri_hKS_beoiu  driven 117 feet and the lode crosscut.  The vein in this tunnel Kitscthe same  characteristic as in the upper, and- it  is believed the. same rich ore will he  met with a few feet further on. The  property needs further development'  before it, can become a si eady producer, although it is the intention of  the management to makca trial shipment this"winter when the ore can be  rawhided lo the Columbia, river, six  miles distant. The cost of a~ waggon  road to the 'river will not exceed  $1,000 per in lie.  nitouoirr down a ma chunk  "The company also owns a millsite  close to the mine, nml a, concentrator  will be erected on it us soon as funds  can be obtained. Tho directors are all  reliable upright men of Revelstoke, of  which Frank McCarty is president, C.  II. Temple, vice-president, and 1. T.  Biewster, ' secretin y-treasiirer and  manager. The iniioiint .expended on  the property so fur has been $0,450.  which was realized by tho sale of  treasury kind.  I brought, down a piece of oie about  50 pounds in weight, wliich assays $.V>  in gold, and if it was placed on exhibition I believe there would bn a  scramble for stock in that company.  STHIKE ON LjU-OKME CREEK  " While I was in Revelstoke Edward  Adair brought in somo rock from  Laforme creek, It was magnificent  looking stuff and assays ptet.ly high  in gold, with a good percent~igo of  copper. Adair and his friends have  eight claims all in a siring on the  ledge, and he told me the last claim in  tin.'string showed up equally us well  as the first. The ore appeared to be  equal to anything we have in Hoss-  land. The people up there are only  just beginning to he alive lo the fact  thai they have n, good thing up the  river. They are beginning to get a  move on, and several parlies have  taken up townsites at various points  on the river right up to the inflow of  Canon river, which is about 100 miles  north and the apex of the bend of the  river.  WILL SHOW THEM HOW TO DO IT  "I loid them they would have a  stirring time next summer, but that  RosKlanders would have to come up  and show them how to work it, as we  had had the experience, whicli was  more than the inhabitants of the  'Sleepy Hollow' at the last crossing of  the Columbia eenld lay claim to.  USE FOB C. & W. BOLLINO STOCK  "What is wanted to open up ihe  newly discovered mineral riches of the  Big Deiid country is a railway, and  there is little doubt lhal the Canadian  Pacillc Will soon be considering the  mailer as a paying piopoailiiui. There  are rertain lo be one or more towns  up there, and the question of there  being rich and permanent minernl  bodies all over tiie district is now  beyond doubt. What will the O.P.I..  do wilh llie rolling stock of the Columbia & Western, now that another  month will see il repl-iced by standard  gunge rails, engines and cars? Would  it not be a good plan to build a narrow  gunge road up the Columbia and use  the discarded rolling stuck of the  little railway thai has done such good  work for over two years between this  city and the smelter town? A satisfactory grade can be obtained without the use of switchbacks, and the  expense of such an undertaking  would be very light considering that  the rolling stork is close at hand, and  ready for use as soon as the narrow  guage road was ready for it. If used  for no longer a period than it was  here, two years and three months, it  would pay for itself long before that  lime hiid'elnpsiid, and then once more  it would have lo give place to the  standard guage. But probably by  lhal tint.! it would be worn out.  HELIEVES THERE WILL BE A RUSH  "Well, as I have said, from what I  saw up there, it is my belief that there  will be n big rush to the Bend country  next summer, and if I can manage il  I am going to try and get in something up that way before the rush  commences. It will be the liU-tory of  Rossland over again. And, like "this  camp, they have the mineral there to  hack it up'and keep it up after it gets  started."

Espec-"  ially is this true in view of tli>" fact  thai the mines have been most faithfully upheld and owe the large proportion of their value and success to  the very means which have been  neglected and unrewaided. The report of mining properties, strikes of  ore bodies in mines, shipments from  smelters, value of ores and mill runs  lias been most carefully made, lo bo  copied by the metropolitan icviewin  the renter of capital, mil il tin-tide of  inquiry and investment has hen attracted to the locality mid a general  condition of prosperous activity established by which hmidieds have been  beneiitcil.

Tho mining industry owes its promising condition, its gen. ml activity, the  favorable state of public opinion towards mining, the investment of capital and the remarkable development  now taking place more t.o the influence  of the press thnn to any one of  iiii other influences combined,  but ils return for all this benefit  has, as a rule, been most niggardly  and certainly unjust.

George Witherspoon swung the corner into Pino streot. His usually erect  body -was bent against the strength ol  tho wind.  "Such weather for the Inst of April,"  ho muttered ns ho wout up tho steps ol  his houso, and as he put the koy into  his door a vision came to him of the  April two years before���������a vision of long  lanes, "with blossoming lilacs and horse  chestnuts and daffodils and of a tall nnd  radiant woman always at his side. He  entered the house and went slowly up  stairs. How olearly it all streamed out,  enveloped his mind, his senses! He had.  first seen her-at a table d'hoto in Paris.  He had followed her over half of Europe and' hnd liunlly mot her at Baden-  Baden. Sho had a doting old father,' but  ultimately the two had gained his reluctant surrender of his only adored  daughter, nud they hnd married.  For just a year they had enjoyed supreme, overflowing happiness. Thou'Al-  ice becamo jealous. A batcli of old let-  . ters had come to her from an unscrupulous woman her husband had been fascinated by in his extreme youth at college,  and she. resented with all her intense  passionate naturo anything which could  come between them aud their exclusive  love for one another. She had spent one  loug night alone lashing her bitter envy  to madness, nnd the noxt morning sh.  had gone to hiin with marvelous calm-"  ness and told him of her irrevocable d������-  tenain'aliou to leave him forever. He  was proud." Ho had mot hor with disdainful indifference, had considered self  justification unnecessary, and they had  separated.  They both had lived quietly. They  wont nowhero, for their friends were  common ones, and they avoided all possible annoying meetings. He spent hi������  time on tbe board of trade, at his clubs  or in liis home, which he could not  bring himself to give up, and sho had  so restricted her life that he scarcely  caught n glimpse of her. Only at the  theater or at some concert did her pure,  proud profile suddenly start out from  the crowd, and then emotion would so  powerfully sweep over him that ha  would have to leave tho building."  _ _OuIy one bond still existed between  ThonTT Slice's-father" was old and-an~  invalid. His time was spent at- watering places, mostly on the other side,  and it had ssemed a simple and dutiful  kind of falsehood to weave nround him  a veil of ignorance as to tho real state  of affairs and leavo him with tho happy  feeling of Alice's joy and completed  love. So they "wroto to him regularly,  filling their letters with sweet plans  and ambitions,nncou.cionsly embodying  in them their fondest wishes and most  heartfelt desires.  George Witherspoon was dressing  himself carefully. Threo cravats were  thrown aside beforo ho had tied ono to  his taste. Ho never looked so well aH in  a Tuxedo, Alico hnd always said.

Hush���������a knock at tbo door I The  man's heart swelled with feeling. Ha  forget everything, the intervening year,  tbe awful binternecs, the loneliness, and  he softiy opened the door, drunk with  one dominant idea. His man Chambers  stood without.  "A lady to see yon, Hir," ho said.  "Her name?" Witherspoon asked.  "Sho Eayn it's not necessary to Ml  It, sir," answered tbo man, "but it'a  m important bnBiness she wants you,  sir, and abe will keep yon only a minute."  Witherspoon's whole being wan vibrating. What was this strango premonition? Was it sorrow coming or did he  tsei a dawDing joy?  "I'll be down in a moment,"heeaid.  He walked up and down the room rapidly several times. It was thoir anniversary. Ife had romnmberod and kopt  it so rigidly. It was barely possible it  had corns over hor as strongly���������thehap-  fiinoss  they woro missing  from  their  ives, tho incompleteness of their vapid  present���������and perhaps sho hnd como to  bim. Ho was almost running down tha  stairs  in bis cagorness.   Ho  held back  -jibe portieres, and there b_o stood befoie  the lira���������straight, tense, ber ilimnosi  accentuated by her velvet coat, th*  whiteness and delioaoy of her fact  starting out exquisitely from the laoes  at _er throat und from under tho big  bla.k hat. As he approached her he noticed tho nervous tapping of hor foot in  tho fur of tho rug, tbe tenso pressure  of her clasped hands. Was it a dream���������  Alice in. her home ngain, a year's misery cnnoeled in a momout? He hold out  both hands and noticod her ej'os in tb*  tuiiror tbey wero lacing ns ho snid:  "And haye you como to me again,  Alice?"  Sho started visibly nnd thon slowly  turned.  "Yos," she answorcd quietly. "I'v������  come to you. And you fl������ustn't fall  uo," she added beseechingly.  "Won't you Bit down?" Witheripoon  Bskod.  She was trembling.  "Thank you," sho said, and she sat  on a low stool, and the man noticed  with n 'sinking of the hoart how she  drow her little cloak about her, the  thumbs of tho clasped hands turned up  and back. How ho remembered!  "I must como to the root of the matter at once," the girl began, and gradually her voice grew fierce and she looked him full in tho face with hor wide,  sad eyes. Ho noticed, with nlinost a  feeling of exultation, that hor face was  now tho face of the woman who had  lived and suffered.  "Yon haven't hoard from my father  for F01110 time, havo you?", she began.  i"_.o," Witherspoon answered. "It  must be somo weeks now."  "I received a telegram this afternoon," the'���������woman went on quietly.  "He arrived in New York this morning  and will be in Cincinnati tomorrow.  Ho is bound for California, and he  will, on his way, stop in town with  ������������������, his son nnd daughter."  Her voice had broken. Witherspoon  rose to his foot and walked to the window.   The silence was painful.  "And whafAvill you do?" be said, at  last, turning to her.  "Thero's only one thing to do," and  the girl's voico was determined. "My  father has very little longer to live.  He's not had much but disappointment  in his life, and, cost what it may, I cannot bring more sorrow to him." You  know, how tho ghastly thing would  shock his old time conventionality."  She hesitated and seemed to look to the  man for his help in thought or deed,  .but his fear of her scorn kept. him  silent. At Inst, taking a deep breath,  ehe went on:  "Tomorrow morning I must send here  the fow things I took away. The portraits, my piano, my work���������they're easily put in place and will-be as easily moved away again. I'm sorry to so inconven-.  'ience "yon, but yoi must see itis unavoidable." She stopped again and  looked into the fire. "My room," she  asked, "is it muoh changed?"  Tho man was kneeling boside her  now, his arms about her. "Sweetheart,  sweethoart," be almost moaned, "stay  with mo, I beg of you to stay with met  Aly life's been ii misery since'you've  not been���������everything is flat and without flavor.

"Why is Mies Ryland bo indifferent  to men?"  Tho question was asked by a cnrioiu  woman who bad  just left the  dashing  young equestrienne's apnrtmunts at the  Bingling Bros.' oirous one evening last  ������������������ week.  "And why is she so fond of a black  costume?" queried another. "I notico  that she rides in somber colors nearly  every night."  Behind the answer to these interrogatories lies a story flavored with ro-  mauco, bnt unaccompanied by the usual  denouement that makes the romance  complete. There is sadness at the beginning and end of it nnd just enough in  tho middle tbat is joyful to mako the  tale pretty. It is a pathetic narrativo,  on tho whole, and 'intern-ting, though  . it does recount the woes of lovers.  Miss Ryland wns not born into her  art. Sho is not tho seventh daughter of  ��������� a seventh daughter of circus fame. Her  abundant auburn tresses blossomed into  radiance under the warm rays of a Mississippi sun, and her-muscular brawn  was early developed on her fathor's  plantation way down south.  Mr. Kyland was one of the largest  cotton growers in his vicinity. Ho lived  three miloB from his plantation, on tho'  outskirts of a pretty southern town,  r;-His handsome home was tlio scent!"of  -numerousfashionable events', and Elena,  his only daughter, was the most admired  woman iu the place.  In the later eighties a -small circus  visited the town. Mr. Kyland allowed  the management to use part of his spacious grounds for show pioperty. Every-'  - body in tho village was out to seo the  first aud only performauce given by the  ��������� aggregation in tho little city, among  others Elena Ryland. -   "  In the circus was a young bareback  rider, Alfred Julian by name. He had  been with the company "only a few  weeks and was but a mediocre performer'.' By'profession ho was an artist, but  fame and fortune did not roll his way,  and he gavo up the pencil for more lucra-  tive'jomployment under tho canvas.' Ho  was a' good looking, educated fellow of  20 years and became quite popular" with  bis fellow performers. -  The young man. was unfortunate on  bis appearance tbafnight. In attempting to loap through a hoop and on to his  borso's back he misted his footing aud  fell with terrific force on tho bos curbing surrounding the ring. Ho was picked up in nn-unconscious condition, and  it was found tbat bis right arm and leg  were broken..     ���������������������������  The accident stopped tbe show. The  '.pectators left their seats and crowded  abont the ring to learn the extent of  Julian's injury. Mr. Ryland was one of  the first to reach tho youth's sido. The  circus doctor was summoned and advised tbat tho young man be taken at  once to a hospital. There was no hospital in tho place, and tho ouly accommodation available was tho temporary  =-=-- shelter of-the-dressing room... ' --  ��������� -  pair. For hours and bonrs they sat talking, or sho would read to him. Lovers  eould not have heen more companionable. .Neither oould regard tho other  moro highly, yet neither broathod a  word of love,.  Julian romained at tbe Ryland house  until ho hnd completely convalesced.  When he loft, it was ns if tho son of the  family had snid farewell to thoso nearest aud dearest to him. Alfrod kissed  Elena goodby.  "I am going to study art again," be  (aid,'"and I will writo you when I gut  buck to Now .Torf-cy. I shall always ro-  momber your kiudnoss. Somo day I  mny bo able to repay it."  Three months after ho left George  Rylund, woalthy sugar planter, was a  business wreck. Faithless employees  bad robbed him, his property hud beeu  mortgaged, but there wus not enough  mouvy on hand to pay off tho dobt, and  the family wero forced to givo up their  'legaut home and tako quarters in 11  pour quarter of tho village. Tho blow  was too much for Kylnud. Tho worry  und .strain uniiorved him, aud ho died a  short while after of shocr physical collapse.  Elena Ryland and her mother were  in destitute circumstances. The girl resolved to bo tho support of the family  and to that ond sought employment in  lhu town. She was not successful and  iu despair wrote to her friond Julian  iu Mow Jersey. Sho beggod him to get  ner a position in the circus. Sho was a  fairly good rider and, with a littlo  prnctico, thought sho could hold her  own iu a secoud rate company.  Julian had mado a good start iu the  enst aud offered the despondent girl an-  othor way out of hor trouble. Ho proposed uiiirriuge. Ho had loved her, be  Eaid, many months,'but hesitated, bo  cause of his lowly position, to ask' her  to bo his wife. Kow that they wero  both ou tho same level financially she  uii^bt look with moro favor on his suit.  Elena accepted tho proposal, but sho  sould not, out of respect to her father's  memory, marry within a year. So she  asked Alfred if he could not meantime  secure for hev a position with the circus  with whicli ho hud traveled.  That's how Elena Ryland camo to ho  a bareback rider in a big circus. Whj  she is not lho wife of Alfred Julian is  another story. Alfred concluded to go  to Paris aud finish his studies, while  Eloua was waiting for tho year to elapse  sutil tliey could be uuited in marriage.  Klena wus successful as u daiiug rider,  aud within a -few mouths after she  started with'the ono ring show she received an "offer from tho Kiugliugs. Sho  has been with them for the last three  years.  Julian never came back from Paris.  IIo took, sick and died-of ;pneumonia.  Miss Ryland did uot even know that he  bad beeu ill until sho received word of  bis death.- His body was laid to rest in  Prance. - -   -., ���������  The hows of her lover's demise was a  terrible shock to Miss Ryland, and for  two wcoks after tho information reach-  Ed her she,was too ill to fill her part.  Por ������ year she rodo in mourning cos-,  . time, and even nov. sho wears black  most of tho time. Sho is quiofc and does  cot mingle much with the rest of the  performers. Her mother travels with  her. TBo young - woman rarely speaks  of her love affair and its sad ending,  and very fow of -her friends know the  story cf her lifo. It is such au unhappy  story, too, that the young folks in the  big, jolly aggregation of performers do  uot liko to hear it.���������St. Louis Republic.  Ryland came to the aid of the management by offering tho uso of bis homo  to the injured man. Tho offer wns  gratefully accepted, and Julian was removed to the magnificent Ryland residence for treatment." The generous, noble hearted planter went further. He  insisted on calling in tbe family physician to" treat Julian, and whon the circus left town tho noxt day tho bareback  rider was resting easy in tho most comfortable quarters be bad enjoyed sinco  he quit bis eastern borne three week*  before.  Julian required a nurse. Elena Ryland, sympathetic and loving, gladly  took npon herself tho task of ministering to tbe needs of tbo suffering mau.  Sbe would bo his nurse, she declared,  and Ehe performed ber duty more faithfully and with greater pleasure than  could be expected of any paid servant.  The second day after bis fall Julian  regained consciousness. He opened his  eyes and looked in wonderment on bis  strango surroundings. He did uot^sppak  for several moments. Then bo inquired  in a soft voico of bis fair atteudaut,  "Where am I?"  "You are in a friend's bouse," Miss  Ryland replied. "The circus is gone,  but you need not wtary for your safety.''  ' He did not "worry. He suffered excruciating pain and often would have  murmured over bis lot, but the gentle  words of his watchful nurse helped him  to bravely bear bis troubles in silence.  Slowly be recoyered. As be grew better be learned to appreciate the service  of bis kind attendant. She was more  than a sister to bim, and ber heart was  filling with more than a sister's love  for a friend in distress.  He asked all about bis accident and  tbe events following it. Ho was somewhat humiliated at bis ill luck and  vowed be would never again enter the  oircus ring. Miss Ryland was fascinated with bis stories of circus lifo and li~fc  tenod intently to every word that fell  from his lips.  Tho patient was interested in his fafer  nurse. He f ally reciprocated hor attachment for him. A fooling stronger than  tbat of friendship endeared her to him.  He was in love with her, but ho dared  not tell hSr. Hor Btation in lifo, he  thought, was bo far above bis that to  dream of such a thing wero folly.  Ihe _J������y������ pssMd pleasantly for the  Whipped.the Four Ilandrcd.  .

The  trouble started in a saloon. ' Tho Russian sailors combined with tho French  and Germans und ..formed a double line  down a narrow street and dared any  Johnny Bull or Yankee to pass.   -  .

It is also i elated Lliut  during a former outbreak of infections  fever in Soiiiors-Xown and St. Giles,  (he French priests who constantly  used garlic in all their dishes visited  the worst cases in the dirties', hovels  with impunity, while the English  c-l.-i-gy who were siiuiliurly engaged  but who did not ent onions in like  fashion caught t.he infection in muny  instances and fell victims to lbe  disease. Raw onions contain an acrid  valiitile oil. sulphur phosphorus, alkaline earthy suits, .starch, nml free nn-  orystaHNed sugar.
