Brewster, of the Oiirni's Oei'k  Consolidated Mining Co., operating on  the Roseberry, on (.unit's creek, informed 11 HeHjU.I- man yestei tiny thnt  the coinpiiny intended to make n trial  shipment of ten tons, probably to the  Hall Mines smelter nfc Nelson this  month. If thev cannot scrim! puck  horses they will try and arrange with  T. Horn to bring the oie down in his  boat. Mr. Brew.ter thinks that even  after an expenditure of $40 per ton in  setting the oie to a smelter they will  nave a return of $60 pur ton, which  means an average $100 ore���������a most  remarkable value. This shipment will  convince outsiders of,the value of the  Big Bend ore and will result in the  ready sale of nil the available Carnes  Creek consolidated stock. This company intends putting in a plant for  the treatment of their ore as soon as  possible.

THOMSON'S LANDING  Mining and   Personal   News   from   the  Landing  Thomson's Landing, Sept. 7.���������The  Landing was (rented loan agreeable  surprise on Tuesday evening last when  the steamship Trail came in with Capt,  Fni-ier at tl-.e helm and about fifty  passengers aboard.jill bent on having  a good time. Among them was J. Si.  Kelly, M.P.P.'  -Our old friend Billy Johnston of the  Badshot mine has been in tawn for a  few days. He says the mine is looking fine. They have GOO foot of tunnel  and good ore in sight all the way.  .1. M. Green, of Bear Creek, came in  on the 2nd and intends staying here  for a couple of weeks on a holiday  visit. He says tho Landing is the  prettiest little camp in Kootenay.  Mr. Batho, general merchant, of  Ferguson, came in yesterday. He  says there is great excitement- in Ferguson on account of the new gold find  on the North Fork, about eight miles  from Ferguson.  Frank Hanna, of Tiail. came in from  the Fish Creek country yesterday,  where he has been looking at different  mines. He has been gone ten days  and reports mining in Kootenay a  profitable industry���������all it needs is  more development work done.  We are sorry to note the departure  of Dr. Westwood and family. The  doctor says this country is too hpalthv  for his profession. He left for Grand  Forks, near the boundary line.  Nonh Abrahamson. of Trout Lake,  was in town on Saturday on his way  to Revelstoke.  Bourne Bros.  Lardeau-Duncan Country  The Lai-dean-Duticnii country is one  of lhe richest mineral fields iu southern British Columbia, but its development hns amounted to little or nothing  owing to the lack of -transportation  facilities. With the single "exception  of the Boundary Creek, country it is  the only important district in British  Columbia south of the line of the CP.  R. that is not traversed by a railway.  But for this ib would now be a scene  of as great activity as exists today in  the Trail, Slocan, Nelson and Ainsworth divisions. But it seems that  the patience of the miners of that  section will be amply rewarded in the  near future. The C.P.R.;and the  Kootenay Railway to Navigation Co.,  the latter a feeder of the Great Northern railway, arc both preparing to  huild through the heart of the district.  The former is surveying a lino from  the An-ow lakes to the head of Kootenay lake, while the other is locating a  route from the foot of Houser lake to  the Upper Duncan river ns fnr as Hall  creek. It is almost a certainty that  both roads will be built with as little  delay ns possible, and the exciting  contest for control of traffic in the  Slocan will, in all probability, be repeated in the adjoining district to the  north, lt will be the Nakusp & Slocan  and the Kaslo to Slocan over again.  Then the Lardeau-Duucan country  will have its Paynes, its Slocan Stars,  its Noble Fives, its Whitewaters and  possibly its Le Rois, and from the  month of the Lardeau river to -Arrowhead will be a string of prosperous  mining camps. The Miner's advice is  "Keep your eye on the Lardeau-  Duucau country."���������Rossland Miner.  Titles to Mineral Claims  In regard to the title or Crown grant  of mineral claims, and as to the necessary work to he done each year to  hold properties before Crown grants  or titles are obtained, of which prospective purchasers this year, particularly Americans, are not fully acquainted with, the Herald has been  requested to publish the following.  Section 24 of nn act relating to gold  and other minerals, excepting coal, as  amended iu 1897 is as follows:  Any free miner having duly located  and recorded a mineral claim shall' be  entitled to hold the " same for the  period of oue year from the recording  of thes'ime, and thence'.from" year to  year without the necessity of re-  recording: Provided, however, that  during each year and each succeeding  year, such free miner shall do, oi  cause to be done, work on the claim  itself to the value of one hundred  dollars, aud shall satisfy the gold commissioner or uiining recorder that  such work has been done, by an affidavit of the free miner or his agent,  setting out a detailed statement of  such work, and shall obtain from such  gold commissioner or mining recorder,  and shall record a certificate of such  work having been done: Provided,  also, that all work done outside of a  mineral claim with intent to work the  same shall, if such work'have direct  relation and be in direct proximity t.o  the claim, be deemed, if to the satisfaction of the gold commissioner or  mining recorder, for the purpose, of  "this section, to be work done on tlie  claim: Provided, further, that_ any  free miner, or company of free miners  holding adjoining iniueral claims, or  any two or" more freo miners who  locate and record adjoining mineral  claims, not exceeding eight in nuinber,  to be worked by them in partnership"  under the provisions of any act for the  time being in force, shall, subject to  filing a notice of their intention with  the gold commissioner or mining re-  conler, be allowed to perforin on any  one or more of such claims all the  work required to entitle him or them  to a certificate for work for each claim  so held by him or tliein. If such work  shall not be done, or if such certificate  shall not be so obtained and recorded  in each and every year, the claim shall  be deemed vnenntjand nhandoticd, any  rule of law or equity to the contrary  notwithstanding.   1897, c. 28. s. 5.  Section 35 is as follows, which fully  sets out the necessary work to be done  beforo a title can be applied for:  Any lawful holder of a mineral  claim shall be entitled to a Crown  grant thereof on payment to the government of Britis.li Columbia of the  sum of five hundred dollars in lieu of  expenditure on the claim, or if tho  intending purchaser shall have performed assessment work in accordance  with Section 24 of the said act and  paid any sum of money in accordance  with'Section 25 nf said act, such assess  ment work and payments of money  may be considered a part, payment of  the above sum of five hundred dollars,  and on payment in money of tho balance of said sum of five hundred dollars, the said intending purchaser shall  be entitled to said Crown grant. The  intending purchaser shall comply with  all the provisions of Section 3<1 of the  said act. except such as have respect  solely to the work required to be done  on claims.  The holder of a mineral claim may,  in lieu of the. work required to be done  by Section 24 of this Act, on a, claim in  each year, pay to the mining recorder  in whose office the claim is recorded  the sum of ono hundred dollars and  receive from such recorder and record  a receipt for such payment. Such  pavment and the record thereof in  any year shall relieve the person making it from the necessity of doing any  wo>"k during the year in and for which  and upon the claim in respect of which  such payment is recorded.  Section 16 contains the necessary  information as to how to proceed-' to  apply for a Crown grant.-  RICH STRIKES  Found by   Prospectors  in   the   Lardeau  District  During the early part of the week ix  Topic, reporter took a trip over tbe  country at the head of Eight Mile  Creek, a stream emptying into Trout  Lake. While there he visited the  Mabel, Virginia. Hidden Treasure nnd  other properties owned by Messrs.  Morgan, Hamilton, Levatt, Munro and  Crwin, and gleaned the following:  On the Virginia two leads cross each  other at right angles, on each of which  some fine ore has been found. The  new strike, a vein cutting the formation, nnd which was discovered eight  or ten days ago, two days' work has  exposed a body of ore some four feet  in thickness and containing large  quantities of clear galena ore both  fine and coarse cube. The lead is not  a solid mass of cube galena, but on the  hanging wall a streak of some six  inches of clean ore is to be seen and a  few inches from it is another streak  of nearly a like size. Then in breaking  the quart-.!, which forms the body of  the vein, it is discovered that it is  almost solid ore and with little difficulty could be sorted and made ready  for shipment. The lead also contains  quantities of carbonates and everything so far indicates that n solid  body of ore lies beneath the surface at  no great depth. A shipment of five  sacks will be made to test the value"of  the strike.  On the other lead considerable work  has been - done, but owing to the  broken up nature of the vein very  little progress has been made beyond  getting some' very fino specimens of  ore of a coarse cube galena, assays  from which have run upwards of '84  ounces silver, a -large percentage of  lend, besides a fair value in gold.  Adjoining the Virginia is the Mabel.  This property ������diows up a streak of  some six inches of galtma oie and  carbonates on which several feet of  work" has been done, showing the vein  to still possess the high grade quality  of its product. Assays give upwards of  $16.80 in gold, 64 ounces silver and 60  per cent. lead. Adjoining the Mabel  on the southeast aie the Nora Lee,  Rainy Lake, Golden Gate and Lost  Cabin, all showing the Virginia'.'lead  which crosses these claims, wherever  exposed to be continuous and containing moro or less ore.���������Trout Lake  Topic.

"For some time  he had been ailing and was advised to  take a rest, but had deferred doiug so  as long as he was able to go around.

A VERY BLOODY BATTLE  Over io.ooo Killed and  16,000 Wounded  at Omdurman.  London, Sept.  8.���������The British  wnr  office   has   received   a  dispatch  from  General   Sir   Herbert Kitchener,  the  commander   of   the    Anglo-Egypt ian  forces, dated iitOmduriii.il! on Monday  last,   saying   that  over    500    Arabs,  mounted on  camels, were dispatched  after   the   fugitive   Khalifa Abdullah  tliat   morning.

G. Paxton from the  Department of the Interior at Ottawa:  Ottawa, August 31. 1S0S.  Sin: I regret to inform you that  owing to oversight action'upon the  suhiect of your letter of tbe 16th ult.,  and of a petition wbii-h was iccently  forwarded to this department by Mr.  Bostock. M.P.. namely: the application of youtself and other residents of  Revelstoke for a grsint of lands for a  public park has been delayed.  The malter has not been overlooked,  however, and it will now receive immediate consideration.   ���������  The lands mentioned in the petition  are villa lots Nos. 47, 48, 49. 50, 51, 52,  53, 51, 55, 56, 57, 5S, and 70. Of these  lots a committee comprised of Messrs.  W. M. Brown, Alexander McRae and  W. B. McKechnie. recommended as a  suitable site for a public park lots Nos.  52, 53, 51, 55. 56 and that part of Lot  No. 57 lying between the other lots  and the Columbia River.  I have examined the records here  arid find that the application must be  confined to Lets Nos. 51 to 57 both  inclusive, that is  to say  Lot 51 and  fiart of Lot No. 57, in addition to the  nnds considered by Messrs. Brown,  Mi-Rao and McKechnie, as sufficient.  By the petition before referred to. or  more correctly speaking, copy of the  minutes of a public meeting of tbe  citizens of Reveistoke held in the  Court House there on the 28th of  April last, it was requested that any  grant which might be made of lands  for a park should be made to Messrs.  H. J. Bourne, J. D. Sibbald and F B.  Wells, as trustees, but I may say to  you that if the grant is made it should  be made to the municipality of Revelstoke.

White, general manager of the '  C.P.R., who was in the south country ���������  last wtek,  said  to  a  Rossland  Miner,'  reporter that he  was greatly  plea, eix  with the general appearance of prosperity in the country and expected  to,  see   the    Crow's   Nest  Pass   railway.'  turned over to tbe C.P.R.   for  oper-,'  ation within the next thirty days.   By.  that time the road  will  be completed  between   Lethbridge,   N. W. T..  and  Kuskonook, Kootenny lake.     Regular  trains will be run as soon as this   is-'  done.    Kuskonook for the present will  remain the rail terminus of the line,,  but this will  by no means interfere,  with the passenger and freight service,  to   points   further   west.     Passenger-  trains will be met at  Kuskonook  by  the handsome nnd  fast steel steamer  that is nearly   ready   for  service on  Knot .-nay lake, while  freight will  be  handled by a barge set-vice to connect '  with  the "Columbia &   Western  railways.    Mr. Whyte was  not prepared  to say whether or not the Crow's Nest  Pnssrailway   will   be extended  westward through the Ymir dislrict, and  via Sal mo, Sayward and Trail, but he  admitted that the route had been  surveyed and found to be practical.     Mr. -;  Whyte said the company fully appreciated all the advantages thnt might  accrue   from   the   constiuction  ol   it'  railway along this route.  No time will be lost in establishing a  service for the delivery of Crow's Nest  Pass coal and coke to points in West  Kootenay.

The  ilillicultics arc great, but nothing can  liuiicefoi-Lh deprive the Czar of having  brought peaoe and disarmament into  Uin sphere ot practeal politics. lt  luolis at present as though all the  great powers might be willing to enter tho conference, while the United  Stales might be expected to lend a  favorable car to proposals tending in  uny degree to lessen the weight of the  imperial responsibilities she is about  lo undertake. Her industrial policy  ib closely ale In lo Great Britain's and  her abiding interest in the maintenance of peace is hardly less vital.  The New Prince of Peace  To the astonishment o'f nations, the  Czar of Russia has made his debut  as an ardent advocate of peace and  unbeliever in the European policy of  increasing armaments. His message  to the powers, jusl made public  through the Russian Foreign Minister  proposes a general conference or lhc  nations to discuss a proposal to put a  stop to the enormous and increasing  expenditure 011 armies and navies  wliich each couutry is maintaining.  The gist of the Czar's note'is herewith given:  "The maintenance of general peace  ami the possible reduction of the excessive armaments which weigh upon  all nations present themselves in existing .conditions to the whole world,  as an ideal toward which the endeavors of all governments should be  directed.  "The imperial government thinks  the present moment would be very  favorable to seeking the means.  "International discussion is lhe most  effectual means of ensuring all people's benefit���������a real durable peace,  above all, puttng an end to the progressive development of the present  armaments.  "In the course of the last 20 years  tho longing for general appeasement  has grown especially pronounced in  tho conscience of civilized nations,  and the preservation of peace has been  put forward as an object of iutcrna-  tonal policy. It is in its name that  great states have concluded between  themeslves powerful  alliances.  "Next, for the better guarantee of  peace that they havo developed in  proportions hitherto unprecedented,  their miliary forces, and still continue  to increase them, without shrinking  from any sacrifice.  "Nevertheless all these efforts  have not yet been able to bring about  the beneficient  result  desired���������pacili-  cation. . ��������� _       "Hundreds of millions "arc diverted"  n acquiring terrible engines of destruction, which, though today regarded as the last word of science, are  destined tomorrow to lose all their  value in consequence of some fresh  discovery in the same field.  "The economic crisis due in great  part to the system ot armaments, and  the continued danger which lies in  this massing o������ war material, are  transforming the armed peace of jut-  days into a crushing burden, which  the people have more aud more difficulty in bearing.  "It appears evident that i������ this  fciate of thincs were to be nro-  longed it would inevitably lead to the  very cataclysm it is desired to av-jrt.  and the horrors whereof make every  thinking people shudder in advance.  "Killed with this idea His Majesty  has been pleased to propose to all  governments whose representatives  are accredited to the imperial court,  the assembling of a conference whicli  shall, occupy itself with this grave  Iiroblem.  "This conference "will be, by the  help of God. a happy presage for the  century which is about to open. It  would converge into one powerful  force the efforts of all states sincerely-  seeking to make the great conception  of universal peace triumph over the  elements of trouble and discord, and  it'would at the same time cement  their agreement by a corporate consecration of- the principles of unity  and right whereon rest the security of  states and the welfare of peoples."  Commentning on this unexpected  and almost sensational utterance tho  London Times says the Czar's note  breathes a spirit of generous, perhaps,  indeed, almost quixotic, humanity���������a  spirit familiar in the effusions of vis-  onaries.but too seldom found in the  utterances of great sovereigns and responsible statesmen. In principle the  proposals of the Czar, put. forth on a  solemn occasion, with every-' marl;, of  disinterested sincerity, will'command  sympathy and respect from all men  of good will. So far as Great Britain  is concerned she long ago abandoned  continental ambitions and there is no  power in the world which has less to  gain or more to lose by any disturbance of existing territorial status  quo.   The  time  has  long    gone    by  "A largo standing army would bo  necessary it the United Slates were  lo embark on a spirited foreign policy ot annexation. Tnis army would  soon crush out democracy at home,  and in lhc end some popular general  would feel it his duty lo save society  by making himself such a president as  the constitution never contemplated."

Thnt is, I am of tho opinion  that a colluctlon of theso originally formed tho nucleus for tho growth of this  ���������trange freak among the islands of out  fresh water lakes.  "Tho flora of tho lake i.s soinctliiiiK  marvellous iu its richness and variety.

Charles Ma-  roue had at the age of 40 wealth and  health, good looks, a considerable ropu-  tation as a novelist and some basis foi  thnt reputation. Ho was not alwayi  popular with men, but in recompense  he had been adored by many women.  Having much, much was permitted te  him���������to be capricious, to be fantastical,  to have eeceutricities, to carry self indulgence to tho utmost limit, even tc  be cruel.  It was caprico which drove him from  J-iOudon iu tho middle of the season and  inado him take a little tumbled down  cottage near tbo village of .Lowstead  and live there alone, to the anger of hie  servants and the mystification of his  persoual friends. It was not all caprice  ���������vanity camo into it. His vanity was  flattered wheu ho mystified people.  That is easy to explain���������their mystification implied interost.

She raised a gloved hand, in whioh  ���������tie carriod some fast fading flowers.  "Smell these," she said, "and they  also will help your memory."  Thoir scent was curious, harsh and  heavy riiot sweet and-refreshing.  "I know," he cried. "They grew  there all among the grass, those great  red poppies.

MRS. ARTHUR B. TURNUP.-.  tho putting green nro tippnrontly deemed  tbo thoroughly rorroct thing. A holo over  800 yards invariably has n second rampurt  V20 to 1,335 yards from tbo first. Thus it  Is ovidont Hint our greens committees nro  uniiiiiinoiis thnt a drivo must have n carry  of about 125 yards, a full second with a  wooden club tho sumo, and an approach  idiot tbo same pitch at overy bole. An  atrocious .shot from tlio too merely loses  distance, which, taking tbo averugo longtfc  of tho holes, is scarcely any punishment,  as tho green can bo reached with a good  second. A badly elieod or pulled ball  meets no worso punishment than a  Ftrnight ball, owing to tbe bunkers boing  diroctly at right- angles across tho line of  piny.  Mechanical monotony, aided by a confi--  denco that one is in sufficiently good practice to bit tho bull true, is all that our  greens committees apparently demand of  our players. No sido issues, no tricky lit,  tlo bunkers placed haphazard to tbe left or  tho right or directly in tho lino of play-  seem to bo necessary to try tho rosourcea  of an export. Tbe oloment of ohanco does  not seem to be entortained.  Such a well known golflne; authority as  Charles B.

Tho word "links" in ils original derivation means tho windings of a river, anil,  though from long-usago it has como to b������  .applied to inland courses, it shows lhat tht  old idea connected it only with those placei  near tho inlets of tho sea whoro golfers  woro accustomed to resort for thoir sport.  TENNIS TALK.  Tha Game Moro  Than Holds Its O'rn la  Splto of Golf.  Peoplo w'io havo been thinking thai  golf would drivo tennis into oblivion must  revise their opinions. Ex-Champion Fred  Hovcy accurately sizes up tho sltuntloo  when ho stntos that all rival athletic sports  help rnthor than injuro ono anotlior. "Tb*  moro populnr athletic sports in general  bocomo," says Mr. Ilovoy, "tho moro each  particular sport is benefited. Each lino of  athletics is particularly fitted to somo particular ago.nnd temperament, but no two  "sports nro e3actly~"sIiiiiIairiirtboIr naturoT  Golf Is well fitted to one ago and temper-  am ent and tennis to another. Golf will  undoubtedly weed out muny poor t.nnla  players from tennis, but their loss will not  Injuro the, game. Golf lacks ono important  oloment as a sport which tennis possossei  ���������tho contest of mind to outwit an opponent. A golfer trios to bent his opponcnt'i  record; a tennis player tries to bent ible  opponent. The personal strugglo will  luroly outllvo tbe contest of baro skill."  XV. D. Orentt, following along tho same  lino, seems to havo como even nearer lbe  true relation of golf and tennis. Ha maintains that gr-1f instoad of being a dreaded  rival has become a valued ally of tcnnlB.  He says: "It has boon proved beyond question that tonnis playors nro tho most loyal  supporters of golf, it Is for tho vary reason that It differs no from their previous  favorite that Its hold is so great, and thr  contrast it offers In a plonsing diversion.  To throw down tha racket for tho golf  club docs not necessarily imply that lt  will not bo picked up again with greater  Interest and enthusiasm after tho tamer  recreation. Tonnis enthusiasts, therefore,  should wolcomo tho advent of golf ns tlio'  surost means to provent Inwn tonnis from  becoming stale. It is ensy to tire of any  singlo branoh of athlotlcs, and the great-  est danger in which lawn tonnis stood was,  that it wub absolutely alone in its class.'  Now, however, tho tennis player can turn  for a time to a kindred sport without the  necessity of abandoning tho old favorite  entirely. Lawn tonnis and golf have al  ready joined hands, and togothcr the,.  will pass on through tho years to come,  unrivaled in their position among amateui  ���������ports."  A match at court tennis, beBt 11 out of  SI sets, for tho championship of the world  and a purse of $10,000, will bo played at  Lord's tennis court, London, between  Thomas Pettit of tho Boston Athletic as-  soulatlon and PoterLatliamof tho Queen'.!  club, London, in the first week of next  November. This will bo ths most important court tennis event sinco Pottlt defeated Mr. Saunders nearly ten years ago for  tho world's championship and a large  purso. Tho court to bo used for tbo servico  will bo neutral nnd tho balls uf French  manufacture. Knob player will be allowed, by tho stipulation of tbe match,  to practice for 84 hours ln tha court to ha  used. There will bo five sets plnyed each  dny until tha winner is known.

Ho lived for ideas; and, with an almost savage morosoucss, pourod scorn on  the round of "at homes" l and nesthetio  tea parties. Both woro selfish and quarrelsome We may judgo, thorcforo, that  Schopenhauer took his notions of women  partly from lira mother. It goes without  saying that these notions wore violont in  tbo extreme, yet not without somo aspoot  of truth.  The "now woman" would rave at this  satiro on her pretensions; and yet it  would do her good to read what Schopenhauer has co say with as much calmness  as sho can eoramand. Woman is hore depicted as emphatically "a lesser man,"���������  Indeed, so fur below man as to be fit only  for tbe role of the old-fashionad German  Hausfrau.  The Oldest lilt of Glass.

Nino miles northeast of Harrisburg, in  tbo solitudo of tho Klttatinny range of  mountains, stand two unique monuments.  Tbo spot is far from nny human habitation, timid curiously shaped nnd massive  bowlders and on tho very crests of thi.  ridgo. Tbo wanderer who by clianco  strays into lhis region may well pause in  astonishment, before a roughly hown rock  upon which stand two carved headstones  nf white inui'blo bearing tho following in-  seirptions:  UNKNOWN.

IIEIJUIESCA-  IN PACE.  Friend, pause and think of tho Brothorhoo.1  of God. Ono may hnvo a few more grnins ol  pigment beneath his skin. Looking into Hit,  portals of eternity teaches us that the Brother-  hood of Man is inspired by God's word. There  till prejudice of r.-ico vanishes away.  The story of tho two monuments date*  to tho days of tho underground railroad,  when escaped slaves woro pursued by tlieir  southern masters. In 1S01 Georgo Washington mado his cseapo from a Virginia  plantation and after months of adventuro  reached the spot whero tho monuments  stand. Choosing to livo in freedom bore  in tbo mountain fastnesses, ho built for  himsolf a rudo hut and lived tho life of a  hoi'niit for a period of 12 years. Gray and  bent with years, ho finally passed away to  his reward, nlono, as ho bad lived. Aftor  ninny days lho body was found in a kneol-  Ing position under-a giant pino overlooking tbo valley.  Tbo elements of deeper tragedy enter  inlo tho story of tho unknown. Four  years after Washington had taken up his  abode on tho mountain the unknown, also  a fugitivo slave, reached tho spot in safety  and found shelter in the hermit's hut. Foi  two years thoy lived togothcr in peace and  safety, but ono day word reached the un-  .known that tho agents of his former master wero on his track nnd wore but a fow  miles distant. Choosing death rnthor than  a return to slavery or tho-betrayal of his  friend's hiding placo, tho unknown stolo  away amid tho rocks and thero died by his  nwii hand.  A fow years ago the remains of the two  slaves woro buried sido by side, closo by  their cabin, nnd a funeral servico was  held in tbo presence of a largo number of  people. Tho monuments woro erected by  tho coloivd people o( tho state shortly aft-  ���������rwarii.���������New York Sun.  As a rule a man's reputation is what  we don't know about  lilm.
