The lower level tunnel on the Nettie  L. was in 200 feet, when Manager Pool  left- the mine last, week. Small  stringers of ore have been crossed all  the length of the lutitit-1.  Kor some timo past the nuinuge-  iiient have been wondering what had  become of the gold values that were  proved (o exist in the ore at tlrst,  more recent assays showing high  values in silver but nothing particular  iii" gold. However, the company quite  recently enlisled tlio services of A. II.  llold'ich, who used to reside hore a few  years ago, and the result of his latest  assays shows tho wisdom of neglecting  or despising nothing in a. mineral  claim until it has been proved worthless by repeated trial.  In the vein matter of the Nettie L.  for sometime past a largo quantity of  iron pyrites has been encountered,  but no great attention was paid to it  is it had no special features to recommend it; hence it has been cast on one  side. But on assays being, made upon  it for the first time tlie astonishing  result was a value nf from 20 to 50  ounces silver, and from $5 to $20 in  gold per ton, in addition to a little  copper, ln consequence of this very  interesting discovery, VV. B. Pool and  A. II. Hold ich proceeded to Trout  Lake last Monday morning in com-,  pany wilh F. \V. Godsal, a prominent  Alberta cattle man, who is heavily interested in the company, to make a  more thorough miiieralogical examination of the ledge than has been  deemed necessary hitherto, and great  hopes are entertained that the outcome of this trip will prove highly  satisfactory to the shareholders. Till!  Herald feels sure that the report of  Mr. lloldich on this very promising  property will bo looked forwaid lo  with much expectation by its' readers.  REVELSTOKE SWIMMING BATH  Opened oa Monday With a  Swimming  Tournament.  The Revelstoko Swimming Bath  opened 011 Monday, afternoon with a  swiuiining'J'toiiriiament. '.which attracted quito a number of spectators,  including a' good sprinkling of the fair  sex.   ' ���������'    1  Tho first item was object diving.  Sergt. Routledge, It. O. D., securing  nine little tin phites from tho bottom  of tho bath in one dive, XV. F. Crage  being second with live, and K. D.  Johnson third with four. In the long  dive Sergt. Routledge was again easily  ahead diving the whole 00 feet of lhe  length of the baih find returning to  tlie end at which he started without  coining to the surface. The-50 yards  scratch race was won by T. E. L.  Taylor, C. E. ' Shaw second. In the  tug of war Tom Bain, Chas. Field and  E. Macgowan were easy victors against  a team composed of C. E. Shaw, R. II!  Mayne and J. D. Molson. In the  water polo, Johnson, Field and Macdonald scored' two goals to Crage,  Mayne and Molson's one. A bandbox  race,'in which the competitors" entered  ciowned with bandboxes caused much  amusement. Chief Bain solemnly  swimming round and round, in a circle  amidst--gre.it���������laugh tor.-^The-niisiid--  ventares (if Capt. Taylor nod G. Skene,  who fell in clothes aiid all and. of  W.  F. Crage, disguised as an obstreperous  female, also caused a good deal of  mirth. It was a most auspicious opening for the new swimming bath, which  is an undertaking deserving of eveiy  success, and the IIickald hopes that  Monday's , entertainment will be repeated before the season closes-.  Thrown Out and Broke His Arm.  ��������� A little boy, Frank'McMnhon, son of  Thos. McMahon, a C. P. It. employe  wis sitting on tho scat of F. McCarty's  delivery wagon on Monday last, when  the learn look fright and started off.  The boy was thrown off the seat and  broke his arm and hurt his head in the  fa'I. The learn continued its career until  a very badly busted delivery wagon wns  ready for the repair shop. Frank is  doing vory well considering the nature  of his injuries.  C.P.R. Engineers Now in the Lardeau.  The C. P. ll. engineers have returned  to Tront Lake and .ire now in camp  near the Horno Payne buildings on  the Ferguson road. It is believed that  this move is tlie result of a recent  meeting of C. P. R. magnates at  Nelson, at which the question of  building thc Arrowhead and Trout  section of the Lardealn road this summer was considered.  Promising Prospects Bonded.  J. S. Turnbull returned from the  Lardean on Monday evening. ��������� AVhile  there he bonded three claims,*, the  Copper Chief, Copper King and Copper  Prince. located one mile from Circle  City, on the north fork of the Lardeau.  and between Circle City and the Horn  ledge. The claims are only prospects,  but an assay taken from the surface  showings gave a value of $75.95 to the  ton in silver, lead a:iil'copper.*  Mining Notes from the L'ardeau.  The Topic reports the strike of a new  chute of ore in tho Silver Cup of  almost solid grey copper sacking at  about $1S00 to the ton.  The Lade Bros, are running a tunnel  on their property which is now in SO  feet and expect to strike lhe ledgo at  ���������10 more.  Strikes of good ore bodies are reported from tlie Elsmerc owned hy Ed.  Hillman on lhe North Fork, I'roin the  Midnight and Lucky Slur, same  owiici'.'on Bunko>- Mill creek; from the  Gertrude and Terrible, on Gainer  creek, owned by G. V. Beer, of Nelson,  and a remarkable strike from the  Silver Bell, owned by II.II. Johnstone,  on Brown's creek.  Good reports are made from (he  Silver Queen. Drifts are being run  each side of the crosscut, along the  lead exposing tin eo feet of steel galena.  THE   HALL   CREEK   DISTRICT  No Richer or More Promising Surface  Indications in the Country.  Mr. John N. "Wagner and his partner  Mr. Louis Behan lias just returned  from Hall creek, in the Trout Lake  country, northwest from Duncan lake,  where thoj' have located a couple of  claims.  Mr. Wagner says that the coimtry  .irouiiil, Hall creek is the roughest and  most difficult'country to pnwpecl in  that ho ever struck. There are practically no trails to speak of, and even  at this late season the snow is not all  ���������1 way in sonic ploces. As a matter of  fact, tliere is only about six weeks in  the year that good prospecting work  can be done in this section. The snow-  will he gone by tho end of thit month,  but will roni~ftagain in the middle of  September. Jlr. Wagner says he has  prospected all through the mining  camps of British Columbia and he says  he. has never seen richer or niore  promising surface showings than those  on the hills in the neighborhood nf  Hall creek. He thinks there is a" large  vein or mother lodo winch cuts across  the country, and the small veins so far  discovered come from this. '  Not miiclr development work has  heen accomplished owing* to want of  transportation.' At present it costs  about $50 a ton to get ore down to the,  Kaslo sampling works,, but Mr. -Wagner Ihin&s that'concentrating works  will he established before long in this  lection and probably smelting works:  He says the railway construction  parties of the Canadian Pacific and  the Great Northern are showing very  careless methods in cutting and slashing down the timber as they proceed,  and allowing the ��������� trees to Hoat down  the Duncan river. , Owing* to this  many small boats'have been wrecked  and last month the steamer Idaho was  _ unk by striking timber in the river-  The government at great expense has  cleared out and made the Duncan  river navigable only to hive it choked  rip again by the logs that uro cut and  allowed to drift down froin the Duncan  lake hy lhe parties mentioned. Tbe  railway men in the. construction or  surveying camps aie also very careless  about their camp fires and iu consequence bush fires are already raging  all through that section of the country  causing an immense loss of limber to  the province. Tlie Hies and mosquitoes  are very bad just now, but Mr. Wag-  _ner._says.he will return to Hall creek  shortly with a force of men to do  assessment work, and probably more  prospecting. The prospectors are just  now going ii"..���������Rossland Miner.  ,       Memorial Altar to Mr. Ford.  Rev. Dr. Paget 7nade in his sermon  at morning prayer last Sunday a  touching allusion lo his predecessor.  Rev. F. A. Foid, in whose memory a  a new altar and credence was placed  in the sanctuary of St. Peter's church  last week and used for th. lir.t lime  at the celebration ������if the sacred mysteries ut.tlie early service, on Sunday  morning.- The preacher said that it  was very gratifying to feel that in the  improvements recently made to the  church they weie only carrying on  his woi k a.s he intended should have  been done had he lived, and he also  said thnt'since his arrival here he had  loimd out in uurnberle-s wavs how  good had been the. work quietly and  unostentatiously done by Mr. Ford in  the parish and how great had been the  influence of his >uihtly life ami character among his flock. 1   -  In the evening Dr Paget preached  to a, crowded congtegation on the  divine wisdom of which King Solomon  in the book of Prover'ot. tells lhat ".ill  her ways are pleasantness and all her  paths are peace."  The new altar, which is, constructed  of cedar, presents a very handsome  and dignified appearance at the east  end of the church and is a fine specimen of ecclesiastical woodwork. The  maker is John E. Wood of First  stieet.  .  STRANGE DROWNING ACCIDENT  The Eody of Mrs. Farquhar Recovered  from Cranberry Creek, Near Arrow-'  head.  A funeral procession,  which   wound'  its   way   from   the   Roman    Catholic'  church  to the cemetery   on  Monday  afternoon was  the sad sequel  of tho'  mysterious dis-apnearanee of Mr.  und  Mrs. Fai-q'uh.ir from  Arrowh. ad   last  Thursday   recorded   by   the   Ueiiaij)'  last Saturday.     The coffin, which was  covered   with  flowers,   contained  the  mortal   remains   of    Mi-.-.    Faiqnhar.  which  was'   discovered   last Satuidiiy  floating in Cranberry Creek, a  stream  which flows into  I lie Arrow   Lake at  Bannock Point, about two miles from  Arrowhead.    The water of the creek  is at   this   stage -of .water,   still   and'  deep, and the body of  Mrs.   Faiqiibm-'  was footid   floating  in   it only   a  few-  led from the  hank.    The  appearance  of the   features  was quite  calm  and  peaceful and there  was  no  indication  of   any   struggle' for    life.    The  coat'  belonging to her husband   was  found  floating close lo his  wife's  body.    The"  boat was   found- upside   down  about'  half a milo   away.    It   is conjectured  lhat the- intention of the husband  and  wife 011  their ill  fated  trip  being  to'  gather   berries.     Mr.   Farquhar  per-'  haps attempted to scramble out  of thu  boat on to  the  bank,, which   is  steep"  and crumbling, and  that  the ground,  giving way beneath his' weight, he fell  hack into the boat upsetting  it.     The  bed of th'e creek at the spot is  nearly  dry at times and  covered   with snags'  and bushes*,  and  Mr." Farquhar,  who  was   more  than   an   ordinarily   good"  swimmer, may have got caught in this*  death trap in'the bottom of the  waler  in trying to  save his  wire,   his body,  not having been at the time of writing'  discovered. ���������J_'  The. body of Mrs. Farquhar was conveyed to Arrowhead as soon as  found,*  and   brought   up   here..for  burial  as  above mentioned.    She wis a. woman,  of middle ,age   and   one" daughter of  about 15 years  is  left   to   mourn  the"  sudden taking*off of her parents.

OTTAWA   LETTER  (Special Correspondence).  Oltawa, July Iti.���������The business of  parliament has made fair progress  during this week. One supply bill  for vome seven millions was passed  through both houses. Lord Minto  camo down io tho senate aud accepted  ihe -pram with the usual formalities.  TVhil������ still about the governor general  gave the royal assent to somo 70 hills  which havo already been passed  during tho session. Most of them are  private hills, bui they represent a fowl  deal of patient labor that is not recorded In the press. The committee  of the wholo is now working its way  through the rest of. the supply, and for  tho past three days has been voting  money ai the rate of two or threo  millions a day.  Militia Department.  Sir Charles Tupper had shown a disposition to be generous     hy warmly  supporting Dr. Broden's policy of holding annual camps, strongly commending the present administration of the  Royal Military college, .and encouraging the minister in his attempts     to  provide ample equipment for the force.  Having dono justice to the minister,  Sir Charles proceeded     to tell     him  where he had gone wrong.      He told  him tbat the despatch of the military  contingent to the Yukon was a costly  but inexcusable blunder.     The troopB  were not needed there-and had    dono  more harm than. good.     The mounted  police were quite capable of keeping  the peace and could be called upon to  do duty any time, while the military  could not be called out except in case  of serious trouble.      More     than      a  million  dolars  had- been wasted      in  thiB expedition.      Sir Charles pointed  out that General Hutton in his report  had   referred   to  another   unfortunate  . result- The absence of so largo a part  of the permanent force had demoralized the schools for -   militarj- training  and thus seriously Impaired the work  of military education. The' minister of  militia would not admit that ho had  done wrong.      Nor.did he seem  disposed  to accept ihe statement of Sir  Charles that the. Yukon miners were  as orderly a people as could be found  anywhere.      Dr. Borden, however, did  something beticr.      He said  that he  would bring half the     Yukon      corps  home again right away.  A Happy Pood Contractor,  li was after this and when Sir  Charleis had gone home for the. night  that Mr. Fielding insisted on having  the whole militia vote put through  hefore ihe house rose. There remained for discussion the Bate provision contract, the clothing contract,  arms and amunition, staff and equipment and a hundred details of administration and policy. The Bate  contract was further ventilated in the  light of additional information.  Statements brought down Hhowed that  tie nrm supplied tho Yukon contingent of 200 men wjth over S:;0.000  worth of provisions at prices considerably higher than wero current . in  Vancouver. Last year Mr. Uordcn  explained tliat though the goods were  -_-bought-.m_OUaw;v_.t���������c_pr_<;c-_was-high-  because tho firm paid tho freight lo  the Pacific coast. Ho is obliged this  year to admit lhat $_,000 freight was  paid "ry the government and that Sir  "Wilfrid Laurier's friend got Vancouver  prices for goods at Ottawa. This is  the samo Mr. Bate who a.. tao Ottawa  Liberal convention of lS'JO contributed  to tho d .'.���������oraiiou of tho hall the motto  "Laurier expects every man io ilo his  duty." Iu thc course of the discussion ihe premier took occasion- to contradict tho statement that Mr. Bate  had given bim a housn.  Cornering Government Binding Twine  To this same Mr. Bate the government sold all last years product of  the binder twine works of KingKton  penitentiary. The farmers have not  forgotten that they paid 12 io 15c  per pound for twine. He got li from  4 to _*V������c per.pound. It was pointed  out in tho course ��������� of the discussion  "which took place Wednesday thai tho  government might by selling direct  to the farmers have done much to  protect them from combine prices.  Instead of doing that both the Dominion and Ontario governments sold to  firms who were in the combine, or  who worked in harmony with It. This  was hard on the farmer bui good for  the operators. The farmer never before paid such prices. The operators  never hefore made such profits.  Didn'i Go Home Till Morning  But this does not explain the all  night and all the next day sitting.  WheD Mr. Fielding issued his unti-  matum that the militia money nyjst  ba voted before the sitting ended  the opposition members replied with  the declaration that the money would  not be voted until after a full discussion and ful explanation. The  long hours of tho night passed and  no money was voted. The morning  wore away and Sir Charles Tupper returned at 10 to find his friends holding the -fort and displaying an' unusual amount of curiosity as io military matters.  The Senate Makes Terms ���������  The eres of the politicians have  been turned to the senate chamber,  where tie Grapd Trunk and Drummond railway contracts have been in  eome peril. Tbey have escaped. Both  bills have'passed through the second  reading ' and one is through committee. Sir Mackenzie Bowel!. Sir  John Carting, Mr. Fergjeon and the  other Conservative ox-ministers have  concluded to vest satisfied whith what  tho senate has accomplished in amending these measures, and what it  is now accomplishing in committee.  Tho other half voted for thc six  months' hoist and agaiust tho second reading, which was carried by a  voto of H7 to IS. It is possible that  u larger opposition may protest  against tho third reading. But thut  docs not. happen until noxt week.  Old Friends Appear Again  It is now eight years since thc  House of Commons dealt with tho  sensational subjects of the McGroevy-  Connolly contracts at Levis and Esquimau. Connolly brothers, the surviving members of this firm, are once  moro the theme of parliamentary debate. Once more thoy aro government  contractors. Mr. Blair has awarded  them a cbntract on the St. John terminus of tho Intercolonial of which  tho lump sum portion is- $32S,17.������>. In  addition there are contracts for dredging and rock filling at schedule prices.  They were not the lowest tenderer:*.  Tho lowest tenderer was G. S. Mayes,  of ai. John, who offred to do the work  for ?2]9, MO. Then next lowest was  John Hunev, of Ottawa, whoso offer  was 208,193." Mr. .Mayes and Mr. Haney  had no dredges tuul asked permission to hire one from the United  States to he returned at end oC ths  job with out paying duty in Canada.  The government refused ~_Bi'inls_loii  and both withdrew tlieir tenders. The  ministers did not call for new offers  but closed the. contract with Connolly at SlOS.lSo more than the lowest  tenders. It is estimated that tho duty  on the dredgo which the government  was asked to forego would have heen  $33,000. Some members think that  tho government might, have afforded  to give up that $33,000 (which io  given   up   in   any  case)   in   order   to  save ?10S,000. Others do not hesitate to express the opinion that, there  Is an understanding between the Connolly brothers and thc lowest tenderer and that Mr. Mayo is not permitted  to lose anything by  the  forfeiture of  $11,000 deposit which he may risk  by not carrying out the control.  I PEI.V_I.SITY  OF 1104  By   Cy   Warman  A  BRACELET   IT   WASN'T  But It Caused No Kml of Excitement  and    One    Young   Woman  Some Embarrassment  Thero is a man out Colmbia Heights  wav who received  a great shock the  otlicr  day.    IIo  has  a  wife  and ' the  wife has a pretty sisiter staying with  her.    Sistor is young and  so  unused  to the ways of a city that her brother  in law^feels it necessary lo look after  her very  carefully.    Ho is   especially  anxious   that  she  shall  not  take   on  any  of   the   summer  girl's   ridiculous  fads.    One  of  them,  as  perhaps  you  have  heard,  though I am Hapjly    to  say I uaven't seen it yet in 'V^shing-  ton, is tho wearing of a sliver"racelot  about one ankle.    Of course its a. fad  no man cares to see his pretty sister  in   law  adopt,  so  you  may  judge of  the horror  of this Columbia Heights  man  when  he   saw   his  wife's  sister  trip out to board a car on Fifteenth  stret transfer station, one recent afternoon,   and   espied   as   she   lifted   hor  fluffy skirts, a silver bracelet, an undeniable,   silver   bracelet,   about    one  Blender ankle.    Tho cars weren't fast  enough for him.   He called a cab and  I dashed home to tell his wife.    Sister  Jennie  was  too  young to  know  any  better,  tut she, must  he  told  gently  hut firmly that she was going entirely  too far.    Wifo  looked at the matter  ln precisely the same light and shared  his horror at Jenny's behaviour.  The  offender  was  called   into   her sister's  room as soon  as she camo  home, in  order that she might see the error of  her  ways.    Wife   presently   emerged,  somewhat red of faco.  "You're a goose,' said sho to her  waiting husband. This was too much.  Perhaps Jennie had undermined her  good taste with the horrifying fad.  "Why pray," he demanded with dignity. ','Was it not a silver bracelet?"  "No, it wasn't," answered wifie.  "It wasn't silver, and it wasn't a  bracelet. It was aluminum, nnd���������  well, clasps will give way some times,  you great silly. The idea! Just as if  Jennie didn't feel embarrassed enough  about it already! A bracelet! The  idea of your not knowing what it  was."���������Washington  Post.  Mr. Blak'cmore has resigned his position as manager of thc Crow's Nest  Coal company.  Miss May Smith, a young lady residing with her parents near Stony  Slountain, was fouud flead in the bush  on Tuesday. A bottlo supposed to  contain poisou was found beside her.  Koy Terry is at tho Jamestown  hospital���������New-Yor !v.-in-a-seriou s-condition, iho result, it is alleged, of injuries received while being initiated  iuto Tamestown Tent, Knights of tha  Maccabees. Terry has placed tho  matter in tho hands of an attorney  and demands financial satisfaction for  his Injuries. It is claimed, that his  abdomen is injured so as to cause Inflammation of the bowels; bis spino  was injured and ono or his front teeth  knocked out.  The funeral uf the late Hon. W. B.

Tho remains were on view all Sunday  and Monday morning at his late residence, and the opportunity was availed by many constituents of the late  member and others from all over the  country, who flocked to the house in  lar^e numbers.

He has dene well in the Yukon  and camo direct from Dawson Cily.  to Ottawa, to get out a patent or. a  cradle device for separating gold fiom  the dirt.

He has a fine' collection of'nuggets,  and some of his Toronto friends have  received one or more as momcnton of  his  visit.  Thc British and Foreign Bible society has decided upon tho issure of a  new translation of the Cree Bible  in the syllabic characters and has  placed the prepraation of the manuscript for it in the hands ot a strong  committee with the Archbishop of  Rupert's Land at the head. The  committee selected to carry on this  Important work ls composed of Church  of England and Methodist missionaries, while the Presbyterian church  has contributed the manuscript translations prepared by the late Rev. G.  McVicar. The work ls now being organized and Rev. W. A. Burman.Win-  nipeg, the secretary of tlio. committee,  is   sending  out  tho   supplies   to   tho  Eleven-hundred-and-four was a freight  locomotive, a little bigger, hut no  better than other engines of hor  class. Moslcy, who managed her, was  liko her. lie was a fair, average engineer, and that was all. And yet,  when another man went out on 'loven  four she would ' lay down on him  eight times out of ten.  And so it foil out that while she  did her work willingly aud well with  Moslcy aboard, she gained a bad namo.  The. conductor, coming out with tho  orders, always glanced up into the  cab, and if Mosley was there he would  smile���������otherwise he would frown.  And if Mosley came out with another engine tho conductor would ho  just he unhappy. Mosley anil thc  Mevcn-four. At the very last switch  didn't go.  One night an extra man went out,  or father, started out. with tho  'levcn-roiir. At tho very last HWithch  leaving thc. yards sho broke the  switch bridle, climbed the fail, turned over on hor back. Jammed her  whistle iuto the sniul, and sobbed her  life  away.  Twenty-four hours later, when she  stood upon her feet again, thoy pushed her= back Into the shops to be  overhauled and painted, and iu that  way Mosley got another 10 days,  wailing  for  her.  Locomotive engineers are notoriously superstitious. To be suro thero  are excoptious.    I was one of them.  The   fireman  of   a    pusher   notices  lhal when   tho head  engines slip  the  pusher will almost invariably slip up.  Tho  head   engines   slip   because   they  have  found   a sharp   curve,   but  lhat  would   nol. cause      lhc pusher,   lying  back  on  a tangent to slip.    But she  will  slip,  and  you will  see the drivor open  the sand valves the moment  he  hears  the  head   engine  going.' or  sees   the   fire  shooting up  in  a. solid  stream,    or feels the weight of      the  train  suddenly  against, his pilot, bar.  Many good and plausible reasons for  this   .responsive    or  answering    slip  mignt,   bo   put   forward,   but  to     tho  mind   of   the   average   engineer   it  is  a sympathetic strike, pure aud simple  ���������ono  engine       feeling    for  another.  Why, 1 have known men  who would  argue   that   a   locomotive   would   not  only sympathize with a sister engine,  but would actually grieve for a dead  engineer.   Hearing   and   seeing   these  things for years, the newly promoted  engine driver  carries with  him,  consciously   or   unconsciously,   a  certain  amount of superstition.  One day when I was hostler thc  master mechanic sent for me. I went  into the office, and camo out an engineer. To be sure, I expected promotion somo day, but not that day,  though I knew that somebody would  he promoted to take Mosley's place  for Mosley was dead. Thc master  mechanic had run mo around others,  but not one complained.  Old runners had shied at 'leveu-four  when Moslcy was alive. But ' who  would want her now? She was  counted "unlucky", then���������she would  be extra hazardous  now.  Of course it did not' necessarily  follow that she would fall to me, but  she did, and the first night out I  seemed to feel the arm rest still  warm where the sate luckless "engineer had leaned, watching the glistening   rail   rush   beneath   his   pilot.  Noah, the old fireman, had refused  at first to go out with me, hut thero  was no one to take his place and  ho,was forced to go. To this day I  see  thnt fireman's sad,  bony  face.  He seemed at first to resent my  presence on the right hand side, and  I began lo resent the resentment.  The head brakeman asked him. in  the language of the caboose, "what  ���������was eatin' him?" Noah said nothing  and sighed again.  As I went ahoui oiling the engine  I heard the fireman telling the brake-  man how she had behaved when Moslcy laid off and an extra man had  gone out on the 'leven-four. - '  "If she'd do that then, what'll she  do to 'em now: what'H she do with  this chippy runner?" The brakeman  shook his head.  At last, after much firing, the fireman succeeded in gelling the engine  (and the engineer) hot. and away we  went���������three engines and  15 loads for  ;th e~f obth il I s:������������������-���������"  =___.  In   the   vailey   the   'leven-four   did  firebox, not a spark camo from her '  stack, aud Mclvor. declared afterward  that he could not hear her exhaust,  and he was coupled to my pilot bar.  Mosley had been a dutlish driver,  and just above the furnace door he  had a bevel edged mirror fastened.  Suddenly I straightened up, glanced  into tho mirror aud saw Mosloy as  pluin as I had even seen him, wearing  tho littlo brown cap that ho had worn  on hie last trip.  Well, it gavo mo a start, though I  am not at all superstitious. In a  moment -1 remembered that I was  wearing tho cap that had been worn  by the dead driver, and remarked  for the first time that wo had looked  alike, had the same hair, tho samo  small brown moustache nearly the  same oyes. Thc furnuco heat had  given me for the moment thc same  ruddy glow that had beon his. In  short, we wero identical, save that  he had been handsome and I was not.  * * *  I was uncomfortable. Climbing up  to my place again, I said to Noah that  the cap was too small for mo, and  exchanged with him without asking  his consent.  I watched Noah. Thc first timo he  caught sight of himself in tho mirror ho put up his hands again, took  olf the cap, folded it carefully, put  a 'ino his clothes nox, uii'l '.Ud a b.g  red and white handkerchief about his  head.  By this lime my two helpers had  hauled me to the top of the hill, where  l held the 'leven lour wi'le open for  10 minutes lo save her crownsheet;  for there was scarcely enough water  ir- the lower gage to wet a postage  stamp.  In a littlo while wu were going  down the mountain, slowly, the heavy  cars cieakir.g on the twisting, curving  rail, anl that, and the low breathing  of the air l ump, was all we could  could hoar. Presold ly the big black  engine began to rise and fall. It  seemed al first lhat she would climb  the rail and lhen fall back into the  grove again. Now she was heaving  great deep sighs. Noah notice it  und glanced at mc. tne whole huge  bulk of in i hiic-'i-y would lift and fall,  sobbi'i.-f *.il".c a  M*oubled sua.  "What':*, -.'ie nui"er with hor r.ov "  J asked. "Did jou over see her Jo  that  before?"  "Not exactly that," said Noah. "I've  seen her cut o good many capers, but  nothing like this."'  "Well,' he added after a pause, "if  she'll tote me this time 1 promise  never to bother her again,' and 1 saw  the fireman cross himself.  "They don't liave no mercy on a  locomotive," Noah went, ou, staring  through the narrow window in front  of him. "Engine ain't hud time to  grieve."  Now that ho had mentioned it, I  could see that thu great engine was  sobbing silently through the night,  heaving anrl falling like a troubled  beast, though, as 1 remarked hefore,  1 was never the least bit superstitious. '���������  As we lay on the siding at Shawana  waiting for No. 10 I took tho torch  to look her ovor. I noticed a bright  band arouud the centre of thc axle of  the pony truck, 'l tie front end of  the forward equalizer had dropped  so that it rested on the axle when  she had her nose down'hill, and the  axle, revolving, would draw the equalizer forward and lift it up, lifting  the engine until it could go no farther.  Thon with a sudden drop the machinery would fall back in place again.  1 called Noah and , tried to explain  to him that this might be the cause  of hor sighs, but he only smiled sadly  and said he knew 'leven-four. Sho was  mourning for Mosley. "She'll bo as  bad cas the liundrod-an'-seven if she  keeps this up." he went on, "only  she'll  never kill anybody.

Having the benefit of the rail that  I had been sanding all along, they  were walking iuto us with the speed  and weight of an ocean liner going  up against a floating iceberg.  I dared not whistle them down, for  tho engines in front of my train  might hear anil* shut off, and so Increase the danger to 'leven-four,  about to be  crushed like an egg.

The city council of Rossland has  mado a peculiar, deal. Tho water and  light systems o'f the town are owned  by a private company, a controlling  interest in which was recently obtained by the company that is operating the electric ,' power plant on  Kootenay river, .JJ^miles west of Nelson. Before the power company obtained control, both the -water and  light systems were offered to the city  at a fairly reasonable price, but the  city council refused the offer, maintaining that the price was too high.  This week they have accepted an offer  made for the sale of the -water system alone, the prico to lie $40,000  cash. The electric light system will  continue to be operated by the power  company, and knowing that they have  a monopoly they will cotntinue to  charge tho pooplo of Rosalamd up to  dato prices for electric ligOat.

THE QUEBEC FIRE  Chicago Chronicle: Students at the  North London collegiate school for  girls recently held a friendly'contest  which for novelty certainly -��������� k  front rank. For a long- time routine  school work had heen sadly interrupted day after day by animated  discussions concerning L the merits  and demerits of wearing corsets. It  was finally decided to settle the matter by a practical exhibition.  The non-wearers of corsets issued a  defl to cope with the corset inclosed-  girls in any form of exercise suggested. The challenge was accepted In-  stanter and IC girls were chosen ou  either side. No men were admitted  to view tho test but it is safe to say  that tickets for the performance, If  put up at auction would have brought  figures to make prize fighters blush in  the background.  The first trial was at leaping. Nei-^  ther side scored can, appreciable ad-"  vantage. The ^average leap for the  corset wearers was 3 feet 7 inches,  while the abstainers made an average  of]3 feet 6 1-11 inches. Then came the  long leap, in which the corset champions cleared .9, feet 1 1-4 inches, and  the rivals 9=feet 4-11? inches. Among  the non-corset wearers, however, was  one girl who out stripped them all  with a leap of 12 feet.  All the girls had trained hard for  the tug of war. The 16 who had never  wore the waist embracers easily hal  an advantage over their sisters, who  were twice dragged over the line. On  the programme there was also an endurance run, in which lt was shown  that the corset girls had an advantage  in the respiration rates. In the way  of pulse rates the other side scored.

',  Kellie's   pocket   organ   fairly gloats  over  Ihe  fact   that  there  is  to be no  wagon road built without a steamboat  or in  other  words  that its  little tin  god  has  again  succeeded  in  abusing  his position as member for this district  to thwart  and  obstruct  its  progress.  The Big  Bend   district   is practically  dead   this   season.      Nothing    worth  mentioning   is   going   on there at all.  The. appearance  of  Front   St,, which  with activity in the Big Bend,  would  he humming with business, is enough  to make a man order his grave to ho  dug in the cemetery  without further  delay.   The prospects for the coming  winter in the town are fairly apalling.  But Kellie has scored his pt_>int.    Ho  has succeeded in killing  for  this  year  the   steamboat   project   on the upper  river, wliich looked at the opening so  promising,   and   bus   condemned   the  the   town   and   Big   Bend district to  another twelve months  of stagnation  and depression.   This i.s a tremendims  victory   for   the    clique   and   Kellie's  private organ does not, fail lo  give  es-  presMon to tlieir feelings of triumph.  Kellie   "has   got   the board   of  trade  where he wants it."    In other words  he   has   abused   his    pull   with    the  government once more to obstruct the.  wishes of every Tiian of independent  nnd piogressive  ideas in Revelstoke.  If that road   hud  been built,  us was  intended,   there   would   have   been a  steamer on the river by this time, and  the lirst step towards the opening  up  of  the Big Bend and   towards solid  business   prosperity    i'or   Revelstoke  would have   been   gained.     But   the  stupid and malicious policy of Kellie's  little clique of wire pullers has again  prevailed to thrust back development  and progress for another season  and  all the people of this town  can do ihis  winter is to sit round the stove again  and tell what a wonderful place Revelstoke  will  be when  the Big Bend is  opened   tip.     And   in  the Heuald's  opinion that  is  all   we   ever  shall  he  able to do as long as we allow a regime  of wooden-headed windbags to misuse  public office for private revenges and  private profit.  TIIE PASSING SHOW.  The private organ repeats and repents and reiterates Kellie's preposterous twisting of Mr. Cotton's '-guarantee" into the idea that he meant  that, if a steamboat is put on the river  and owing to business or natural  causes fails to render a regular service  then the owners will have to forfeit an  amount, equal to the cost of the wagon  ruiul. Of course Mr. Cotton only  meant by iigiiurjiiitee.agiiai-iintee tint  a steamer capable: of rendering an  an efiicienl regular service was to be  put on the river. Mr. Cotton is no  windy demagogue. He' is a man of  common sense, who recognizes to the  full that the province stands to reap  big profits from the development of  the Big Bend and should also stand in  with some of the risk. If he can see a  steamer in sight on the upper river, he  will build the road, and the Hekald  does not think Kellie's remonstrances  will have any effect with him, after  his personal experience of the very  j humiliating position occupied  hy  our  ue LEADING STORES'  No UluiiTEk, No Fuss, Just Business, That's All.  ���������oet  For thc past Three days hns (Tented a decided scnsntioii.

In St. Nicholas thero is an article on  "The Groat Lakes" by W. S. Harwood.  Mr. Harwood says: 1  While Waiting for my steamer to be  carried through caual locks of the Soo,  I stood one summer day near a hill on  which now stands Fort Brady, overlooking the rapids of tho Soo as they  Clow from Lake Superior down into tho  St. Mary's river and so on to join at  last tbo waters of Huron. On tho top of  this hill, as nearly as I could decide  from the topography of tho country,  was wituessod two centuries and a quarter ago ono of the most remarkable, one  of the most significant, scenes in the  history of the new world. It has been  brilliantly described, and I may bat  mention it.  On June 14, 1G71, a strange body of  men was assembled on this hill. It was  composed of four classes���������tho official  representatives of tho king of France,  tho Catholic missionaries, the voyageurs  and the Indians. Weeks before word  had been sent out to the chiefs of 14 of  tbo different tribes of-Indians in tbo region . to moet' at tho Soo on the date  mentioned. An immense cross of wood  was mado and carried to tho top cf the  hill overlooking tbo swift flowing  rapids. A stout timber with au engraved plato on it was set up near the  deep holo in the ground which was to  hold the foot of the cross.  Wheu all had assembled,.St. Lusson,  the representative of thc king, lifted ia  one baud a clod cf earth aud in the  other his naked sword aud iu the namo  of his most- Christian majesty the king  of France took possession cf the land,  embracing in his assumption "all tho  region from the north'to the south' sea  aud extending to the ocean on tho west."  The cross wus thon ruised beforo the  motley throug���������the representatives ot  the government in their most gorgeous  suits, the priestu in their rich vestments, the voyageurs iu' their hunting  garb of skins, the Indians in thoir most  fantastic feathers and paiut. As the  cross assumed position the priests intoned a stately'chant of the seventeenth  century. Then the French exclaimed  "Vive le roi!" while, as one historian  puts it, "the Indians howled in concert."  The plate upon the smaller timber  bore an engraved inscription denoting  the king's possession of the land.  1   FIRE INSURANCE^       S  All classes of insurable covered   $  nt fair and equitable ratos. 0.'

Ho takes no personal interest in ;������cu  and docs not cxpec; you to tako miy  personal interest in him. He talks  frankly and freely about everything,  but in a secular way. Ho imtken life  seem to j-on merely a uoninic_ cial career.  Fiction for him is editions of 100,000  francs a year. His magisterial and magnificent panoramas of descriptions, un-  equaled for their kind, are ali measured  off in his mind as so many rods of printed matter at so much a rod. No personal  magnetism, no sentiment, no perfnmo,  no rose colors. Life has been for him a  blunt, rude, brutish thing. He has conquered merely because he bus worked  harder than any one else. With him  naturalistic literature succeeds only by  the sweat of the brow. What loins 61  strength nevertheless!
