H. Temple, master mechanic on the Pacific  Division of the C.P.R., ou the eve of  his departure for "Winnipeg, whence  he hits heen called to assume the position of master mechanic of the  Central Division. About sixty colleagues, fiiends'and fellow citizens of  Air. Temple attended the banquet.  Siipt. Kilp.itiick presided and at his  right sat the guest of the evening,  while the Hon. O. ��������� H.

Supt. Kilpatrick said that this  was only a slight token of the esteem  in which Mr. Temple was held by the  community and this promotion to  Winnipeg only a step to the top of the  ladder which Mr. Temple was sureHto  attain; Mr. -Temple would' never  crowd another man off the ladder in  order to_ reach the top himself, but  would rather stoop down and give a  helping hand'to. one below." This had  'Always lieeu-Lllc  principle���������wUioli���������hcuL  "governed-Mr;- Temple's' actions.'". ;-Mr.-  and Mrs. Temple, had always been  leaders in any moyomenf-helpful to  the enjoyment or welfare of the  people of Revelstoke. Mr. Temple  was then presented with an address, a  gold-headed cane and a case of pipes.  The address read by Mr. Phipps was  as follows:���������  '��������� Kevelstoke, June 13th, 1905.  Dear Mb. Temple :  We, the undersigned, heg to take  this opportunity of expressing our  good-will and best wishes for your  future welfare on this, the eve of your  departure for AVinnipeg, and at the  same time congratulate you upon youi'  well-earned promotion which we  regret necessitates the removal of  yourself aqd family from Revelstoke,  as we have learned to admire your  sterling worth and good qualities both  as a citizen and an official of the  company you are connected with. We  trust that you will meet with every  success in your new position and that  it may prove to be the stepping stone  to a still higher position in the company's service which we feel you  richly deserve.  Signed on behalf of your colleagues  and friends."  T. Kilpatbick.  A. E. Piuprs.  The address was also signed by all  those present at the banquet.  In reply Mr. Temple thanked his  friends tor-the" honor" they~had~done"  hiin. This gathering fully demonstrated the good will whichj existed  toward him over the entire divisioti  and in the city of Revelstoke, and he  would go away happy with that  thought. Mr. Temple gave a brief  sketch of his early experiences in British Columbia. He arrived at Fort-  Yale in 1887 where he occupied the  position of floor foreman in the shops,  and on their destruction by flreshortly  he was moved to Kamloops, temporarily, and from there to "Vancouver in  the fall of 1887.     In   1889 lie was ap-  Sointed locomotive foreman ut North  lend, and from there he was moved to  Revelstoke in 1891. He was happy to  say he had had the undivided support  of the employees on the Pacific Division, 1904 had been the banner-year  on tbis division and as a result he had  been summoned to "Winnipeg to accept  the position of master mechanic of the  Central Division." "When offer was  first made he declined* it, but finally  gave in when pressed by. the management. His choice would'have been to  remain among his old friends, bufcthey  could remember that when laboring in  anew field he would always have a  warm spot in his heart for the Pacific  Division.

"="<.  Knight, who was formerly' a vsteam  shovel contractor, had until last  Saturday been employed as a' workman on the Alaska building. "For  several months he had been separated  from his wife. She lived at 2210**-  Eighth avenue, wliile he boarded at  2010 Twelfth avenue, south.  Yesterday noon.he went to his wife's  home to attempt a reconciliation.  She refused to have anything more  to do with him. Slie told him that  he had treated her cruelly, und she  never wanted to see him 'again. He  threatened to kill her if she did not go  with him, but she disregarded his  threats.  He left her and went to the basement of the bouse, where it was afterwards found he had kindled a fire in a  barrel of shavings,  He rushed back Into the room  where his wife was and, grabbing her  in his arms informed her that the  house was burning and that they  would die in the flames together. His  four-year-oldchild wtis in the house  at the time,  Mrs. Knight struggled, thinking  that she was about to be burned to  death, but Knight _ held her tightly.  Finally she managed to break away  from him and rushed out of the house  and gave the alarm of fire.  In the meantime Mrs. Anna Heath,  who also lived in the-house~hud~gone  in the basemen I and had carried the  burning barrel of shavings out of the  room to the yard. In doing so her  clothes caught fire. She rolled on the  grass to extinguish the "fire in her  clothing and succeeded in putting it  out.   She was but slightly burned.  When Mrs. Knight rushed _out of  the house screaming fire the alarm  was turned in and tlie fire apparatus  arrived. In a few minutes the blaze  in the basement was extinguished  with but a nominal loss.  The Knight referred to above, it is  reported, worked some years ago here  on the C.P.R. steam shovel, and was  married here at the Salvation Army  Barracks. His wife then being a  member of the Salvation Army.  Seventh Annual Curling Tournament Opens at Nelson on  Monday���������Programme Better  Than Ever.

There aro somo critics who aro  unkind enough to suggest that tho  signor sleeps with one oye open, and  who scoff loudly al the possibility  of anyone doing intelligent work in  his sleep; but oven if there be any  ground for suspicion in this particular case, their scepticism on tho  latter point is quite  unjustifiable.

Ho  was astonished ono morning at receiving a cheque for an article in a  .London ovening newspaper. He had  no recollection whatever of having  written any such . article, aud  promptly returned the cheque with a  letter to the editor explaining that  it must havo boon sent to him by  mistake. Back came the*cheque,  however, with a message that he had  earned it and must keep it; and it  was not until the author saw in  print the article which was credited  to him that the explanation of' - thc  mystery flashed on him. Ho then  recalled that in a dream the idea of  writing such an article liad occurred  to him and that he bad sat down  and written it. .The whole incident; however, had boon completely  effaced from his memory; only to bo  revived when ho actually saw ,in  print the very article ho had evidently written and dispatched in his  sleep.

Even whon a sheet of  cardboard was interposed betweon  his oyos and the paper ho continued  to write with equal ease; and  if n blank sheet.. of ..paper were  substituted when ho       '.was  revising he would make the corrections in tho exact part of tho empty  sheet whore.they..would have come on  his manuscript.  AN- EQUALLY CREDIBLE STORY,  is told of a doctor Who was. .watching-all night at the bedside, of a  patient and, overcome with fatigue,  fell asleep. Before doing so ho had  asked the nurse to awaken him. if  certain changes occurred, when ho  would change tho treatment. When  ho awoke somo hours later ho was  gratified to find his patient bolter,  but astonished to discover that lho  medicino had been changed.

The New   System   only Requires  a  Fair Knowledge   of  Typewriting.  A remarkable high-speed telegraph  instrument has boon invented by a  Mr. Donald Murray, who claims that  it is as grout an advance upon the  Itroi'Ku instrument, as the Morse was  upon its predecessor the single  needle.  For twelve months tho British  Postolllce hnvo bad lho instrument  working for experimental purposes  betweon London and lOdinburgh, apparently with promising results, for  they have now decided to tost further a perfected instrument Hint  has been devised by Mr. Murray ilur-  *ing that period.  If the Murray transmitter ovor becomes universally adopted, it will  moan that telegraph clerks will  never have to put pen or pencil to  a telegram, beyond perhaps marking  upon it tho time of handing in.  The system is in some respects  similar to tho Wheatstone, but differs inasmuch as paper tape, instead  of being hand punched, is perforated  by an instrument. Also tho tape  at the other end of thc wire is similarly perforated instead df being  marked by dots and dashes; and,  above all, this tape can bo placed  upon another machine, which- converts the perforations into printed  words on tb telegraph forms at the  rate of about 120 to 150 words a,  niinulo.  INGENIOUS   OPERATIONS.  Tho system is four or live times  ns fast as the Morse, and consists of  three stages :���������  First, tho telegram is copied on a  machine resembling a typewriter.  Paper tape runs through this, and is  perforated as each lettor is struck.  Secondly, tho message, as it appears on tho tape, is run at a very  rapid rate through a transmitter,"  and'an exact fac simile of the tape  is produced at the othor end of the  wire.  The third process consists in putting thi.s tape through a typewriter,  ���������with automatic mechanism driven by  a small olectric niotor, and the message reappears neatly printed, lined,  and spaced.  This last stage may bo described  as being similar in effect to the  placing of paper rolls of music in  an automatic piano. .'..Whereas.'' in  that case tho .perforations are the  cause of the notes being struck and  tho music being produced, so in the  case?of this instrument tho perforated papei>is tho cause of the ��������� typo-,  writer; keys going ; down and ,. the  hammers containing tlio letters striking the telegraph form'and producing  letters .and:'-words. _ ������������������.._:-:-*-". -:  Ono of tli'e���������enViotM-of-tlib'.iise-of this  iiiotiiuiiont'" to conic up to expectations���������would be a groat saving of  timo, as a wire? would be capable of  carrying four or live times tho number', of.' words as at present, and  fewer persons would consequently be  required to perform the work.

Tho Governor and  officials vied with each other in hospitable entertainment of tho slrun-  gor; and it wns with pain that this  request to be allowed to go to tho  top of the rock "for the sake of tho  pure air" was declined. But so insinuating and guileless was tho Gorman that at last he had his way  even in this matter, antl the rule  which forbids foreigners to walk  about the top of the rock was - relaxed in his favor. The regret whon  tho amiable visitor left wns universal; but the result of his visit is bo  bo seen nt lho German War Oflice  in the form of perfect plans and  photographs of all our works and  defences at Gibraltar.  1 A short time ago a German lieutenant enlightened the world as to  the methods practised by spies in  time of peace.

Disguised ns a major of a  French artillery regiment, he was  present at the 1892 manoeuvres,  overheard important secrets in the  head-quarters tent, and! changing  his disguise to thnt of a pedlar, got  safely away with much valuable information. He even penetrated in-  > to the naval dock at Toulon by the  expedient of upsetting his boat and  swimming to the docks, where ho  was rescued in np apparently unconscious condition���������but really sufficiently wide-awake to take stock of  nil  that  was  going  on   thero.  In 1S94 he traced the underground  telegraph system of the French army  disguised as n chocolate pedlar; ho  engaged himself as' coachman to M.

But much of" ��������� the most effective  work in spying has been dono by  women. One of thc most dangerous  of them all was Mme. Bastion, a  char-woman at the German Embassy  in Paris. Il was niadame's practice  to enter the Embassy every morning  at six o'clock, ransack drawers,  coat-pockets, and waste-paper baskets, and hnnd ovor her spoil daily  to an agent of the French Epionage  Department, who sorted the papers  aiul found much of value in thcm.  For many a long year Mme. Bastien  plied her profession without arousing the least suspicion.  As a rule, however, the most dangerous femalo spies are those who  possess a formidable weapon in their  porsonnl attractions. Such a siren  was Baroness do Kaula, who -did  such excellent work for hcr Fatherland.

Prisoner���������A wholo lot,  if you'll just  give  mo  time.  The autumn is tho timo when tho  newspapers tnko up tho subject of  athletics, especially college athletics  and discuss its bearing upon the futuro of tho.. individual and of the  race. This " discussion is renewed  each year during tho football season,  and each year it is abandoned - with  the question no nearer a solution  than  at its beginning.  It is contended that athletes ��������� livo  as long as ,if not longer than, the  nvorago person, thai exercise never  harmed any one, and that nothing  can bo more hygienic or morc health-  giving than hard training. To this  it is roplied that statistics prove  the fact that few athletes-livo to a  green old age, even if by chance thoy  reach middle life, that over-exercise  causes hypertrophy of tho heart,  hardening of tho arteries and kidney  disease, and that lhc gorging, tho  tobacco-smoking, and sometimes tho  beer-drinking to which tho athlete  turns as soon as the contest is over  and the trainer gives him freedom to  do what ho will, not only undo all  the possible good of training, but  work grave harm by sudden excesses  aftor abstemiousness.  As  is  usally thc caso in  all     controversies,    there  is   right   on     both  ,,   sides. Given    a   young man  with  sp ' sound organs, supple arteries and  well-balanced nervous system, it is  probable that he can work with the  college team for tho entire four years  ���������under medical supervision. of  course���������without damage to the heart.  Thn danger will come when he leaves  college and enters upon the professional-or-business-career,���������which���������allows littlo time for athletics. If tho  enlarged, muscular heart, which all  athletes must have, is suddenly relieved of all its extra work, it will  make husto to dispose of its surplus  muscle, and this by a process of  fatty degeneration, most dangerous  to thn present and futuro integrity  of the organ. But if the cx-athlcto  continues his training and his oxcor-  cise in gradually lessening degree,  tapering off, as it wero, to a normal  existence, the reduction in size of  the heart will also' bo gradual, and  the heart is lot down slowly and  very gradually, it will keep ils tone  ���������otherwise it will probably bo ruined. Heroin lies the secret of the  good and bad of .athletics, in sane  moderation, for healthy men.���������  Youth's   Companion.  .Justice--!     gnaw  thirty rlaj-s  be  time  ^awj-jh.  will  BABY'S   WELFARE.

Indeed, apart from long association  it would be diflleult for anyone not  to fall in love with tho King's beautiful and ro.nnntio seat in the .Highlands. To'Queen Victoria it was  always the "dearest place in all. tho  World���������tlio only place, in fact, whero  I am permitted to forgot that I am  a Qucon." "Every year," slio wrote  in 'hev diary, "my heart becomes  moro fixed in this dear paradise antl  so much more now that it has bocomo my 'dearest Albert's own creation, own work, own building, own  laying out, as Osborne was; and his  great taste and tho impress of liis  dear hand havo been stamped everywhere."  It is just over half a century since  Queen Victoria proudly laid the foun-  dntion-stone of the present houso,  whicli was to taJco th'e place  of the pretty and c'uaiiit old Scottish  cnstlo, the survival of many centuries  and in tlio 'autumn of 1S54-, though  the building was but half finished,  the impatient young Sovereign insisted   on   taking possession   of it.  INCOMPLETE AS IT WAS,  slio foil into instant raptures over  it, and wrote enthusiastically, "The  now inouso looks beautiful. An old  shoo was thrown after? us for Kick  as we .entered'the hall. The houso is  charming, tho rooms 'delightful, tho  furniture,, papers, everything, perfection. The view from tho windows  is quite beautiful.''  And, indeed, the Queen's enthusiasm could not paint her now home in  too bright colors, for thoro is no  homo in the King's dominions moro  picturesquely       and romantically  placed than Balmoral. Tlio house, it  is true, with its gables aiul mullions,  turrets and square tower, its magnificent oriel window and its imposing  portals, may nol satisfy the demands  of scientific architecture, but nono  can deny it a charm and beauty of  its own, while its setting of fir woods  nnd park sloping to tlio beautiful  Dee, of towering hills ancl wild  sweeps of purple moorland, is of unrivalled beauty. In such a place thc  world of Courts and ceremonial pomp  of stress and storm, seems left far  behind, and tli/* most- harassed Sovereign in the world should find it  easy to persuade himsolf that ho is  not a King, but a free, untrammelled  child of Nature.  - Queen Victoria, whon sho first looked on it, painted its charms exquisitely in theso woi*ds: "Tho view ��������� is  cl-rnmine*. To the left vou look towards "the beautiful-Kills "surrotiiiiliug  Loclmngar. and to the right, towards . Ballator, to tlio glen along  which  tlio Poo  winds,   with  BEAUTIFUL WOODED HILLS,  whicli reminded me very much of tho  Thiiringenvald. Tt was so calm., so  solitary, and it did one so much  good as ono gazed around; and the  pu.ro mountain air was most refreshing. All seemed to breathe freedom  and peace, and to mako mc forgot tho  world and its sad tiu-moils. The  scenery is wild aitd yet not* desolate."  For Queen Alexandra, as'for Queen  Victoria, the place is full of happy  memories of tho early years of wedded life, when she rambled over tho  moors and plucked tlio heather with  hor husband by her sido, When . lie  taught her to wield a rod on tho  banks of the Dee, and wlien* sh'o made  her first friends among hor lowly and  dovoted Scottish neighbors. There  are those still living wiio can recall  tlie first visits of the beautiful young  Princess to ttheir cottage, how she  would take the little ones on her  knees, h'elp some half-blind old dame  with her knitting, or minister tenderly by tho bedside of the sick.  Ono of the earliest favorites was  old "Jock" Simpson, a pensioner  who, at Copenhagen, hid fought  against the Princess's countrymen.  But this past antagonism only increased -lier-interest iu tho-old-voler--  an. and slie insisted on seeing tho  cutlass and musket ho carried and  on hearing tho story of tho fighting.  No wonder that Jock's heart was  quickly won, or that to his last day  ho treasured' so proudly tlio chair  which' wns "tlie bonnie Princess' ain  gift."  Amid sucli loving and loynl neighbors, and surrounded by the richest  treasures of scenery Scotlamf can  show evon to so fair a lady, Who  can doubt that Qucon Alexandra's  visits   to   Balmoral   aro  "FULL OF QUTET DELIGHT"?  She loves to renew memories of th'o  neighboring Aborgeldio Castle, with  its historic square keep and round,  clinging turrets, whore she has spent  so many Ij-yipy days with tlio King;  and of Diskhnll, a charming little  place, where hor husband made liis  bachelor home before ho sought liis  bride  in  Denmark.  Then, within an easy walk or drive  arc some of the most romantic and  beautiful sights to be seen in Scotland���������lho lovely, falls, of Garrawalt,  in their (.reen setting of troos; tho  Linn of Doo, with, tho dark waters  swirling nnd seething deep down in  its rocky girge; Braemar, reached by  the beautiful "Queen's Drive" t'hrough  thc romantic Forest of Ballochbuio;  and the Earl of Mar's Punch-bowl,  onco filled to tlie brim with whisky-  toddy for the followers of "Bonnie  Prince Charlie."

A Peculiar  Religious   Sect in England.  Th'o Cokelcrs, a curious religious  sect, may influence tho result of the  election "in North-west ''Sussex. Founded in 1850, tlie sect holds aloof from  politics, but an effort will be made  to got tlio members to go to tlio  polls, and as thoy possess about 500.  votes they are an election asset not  to  bo 'despised.  flic derivation of tho word Cokelor  is enveloped in mystery. It Is supposed by some to liavo relation .to  their principles of temperance nnd  th'eir fondness for cocoa, and by  others to a locality described in old  records as "Cokky." Tlio Cokelors  arc only to bo found in tho Weald of  Sussex and iii a few Surrey villages.  Tliey. liave a creed of a pronounced  Anlinomian typo, built upon a number of texts taken away from th'eir  context and thus rendered capable of  any interpretation which may bc put  on thorn. In each' cha pel there aro  elders or "stalwarts," pick'*iT from  the congregation; but thoro aro no  ministers in tho accepted sonso of tho  term, nnd the order of service is  closely akin to that of thc Quakers.

In tliose circumstances, "although tlioy  liave no marriage service of tlioir  own, the elders raise no objection to  members of the sect going tlirough  th'o  ceremony elsewhere.  Mr. Clianib'crlain wants to see "free  trade within the Empire," and the  Coklelers' ideal is free trade within  their own business limits. In every  village wliero Ihey have taken root  the Cokelors have their own store,  wliich" is mainly supplied by members  of tho sect, and sells to all-comers to  tho profit of tlio sect. But tliose establishments pay tlioir way and benefit all who have dealings with thcm,  btpenuse thoir mannl_ers will not countenance "dumping" of any kind; and  it is not surprising thai a proposal  to evolve a national scheme from llic  snmo germ ns tlieir parochial ex-  perimonls should be looked upon by  tliem  with  approval.   -������   WHEN FRANCE FIGHTS.

Tho  Napoleonic dictum that an army  marches on its stomach has been so  long admitted ns a military axiom  that it seems strango that only now  has effect been given  to  it.

At all events, let the men  who have honestly invested in buildiiij*  mills in this Province insist upon the  imposition of the duty on American  rough lumber and shingles. The importation w.-is about $3,000,000 for the  year ending June 30th, 1901. It may  be $1,000,000 next year.        "  "Well, the Hon. W. S.

Government for its .indifference���������and  now,tif the following telegram, which  was published last month, contains  reliable information, it. would appear  that the bulk of the lumber business  of British Columbia is to be transferred  to the United States. The despatch is  certainly worth reproduction,  "A despatch from Vancouver, B. C.  to the Post-Intelligencer says: It is  reported here that there is a proposal  on foot, which, if consummated, woul 1  throw tbe control of the lumber mnik-  ets in Northwestern 'Canada almost  entirely into tbe hands of Puget sound  lnillmen.  "According to report here, it is now  possible that the British Columbia  lumbermen may be induced to retin*  from the sale of lumber in the Northwestern Canada on the understanding  that a certain proportion of the lnmbei  sold there be purchased by the Ameri-  ���������can-iniil5iirom~the-i"mills "in���������British  Columbia.  "In other words, the British Columbia lumbermen miglit allow the  American mills to control the market  sales provided some of tlieir product  were taken otT their hiiiicU.  "The Iwsis on which the new arrangements may be brought about i**  understood to be that the nvenigi*  annual .���������.-ali.-. of British Columbia lum  ber in Northwestern Canada shall In  maintained for a stated period of years  but all lumber shall be soltl by American inteii-sts. In ' the event of nn  arrangement such as outlined above  being completed the Canadian lumber  manufacturers would, it is said, save  considerable expense withouL loss of  existing business."  We sympathise with the Provincial  lumbermen, but they must lemember  that tbey permitted Senator Teinplo-  man, XV. A. Galliher and a bevy of  Grits ond office seekers, to pull the  wool over their eyes; in short tliat  they were willing to jeopardise the  whole Province so long as a Government supporter was elected. Kven  Conservative lumbermen were cajoled  into blundering. However, as we have  before said, recrimination is useless;  but we cannot but feel for the thousands who may be thrown out of  employment, should the proposed  combination or compromise be effected  "LOST AND FOUND"  G-wo-MUaeM   Ui    Nei*'   York   Department  Store*.  The carelessness of the shopping  public Is marvellous. You begin to feel  atter awhile that people who are so  thoughtless don't deserve to have any-  -hlng. We never receive handkerchiefs  at the "Lost and Found" desk unless  a.very handsome oie is brought to us,  and ���������"���������-������������������accept It under protest. Neither do our customers often lnaulre for  them, possibly because they think they  dropped t.h*m_t-H tHo alrat-t..     ..__.,.      .....  Umbrellas are among the articles  most frequently lost." Sometimes on  a rainy day the desk looks like a bargain counter of umbrellas. ?  Strange as it may seem, pocketbooks  are third ln the list of articles most  often lost There Is never a day in  wliich irom "one to eight pocketbooks  do not either find their way to the desk  or are reported as lost in the store.  A woman came the other day to saj  thatshs had given the baby her purso  to play with and he had opened it and  dropped put two $10 bills', for whicli  she wished us to make search. It le  seldom that a purse is picked up that  does not contain one or two rings and  some other small pieces of jewelry.  Many capes, jac-cets arid furs are  dropped. A customer once reported  that she was afraid of pickpockets and  io had taken off her handsome diamond  watch and was carrying It In hW  hand. Unfortunately she had laid It  down somewhere and-couldn't find it.  Gloves and veils are frequently picked up and parcels innumerable. Garters seem to have a* fashion of getting  away from the wearers, and sometimes  a stray bustle finds its way to the  desk.

The  superintendent is surprised when an  article is brought to the desk by a  shopper. It ts the clerks and the little cash girls who turn over anything  that they may find. It is my experience that our girls, who have small  ���������alarlea, are constantly exposed to  temptation and overy day see pretty  things they would like and cannot have  are almost Invariably honest.  Conscience plays stranse pranks  sometimes. Only last week we received through the mail a box of  Jewelry. There were trinkets of every  kind In It, rings, breastpins, chains,  bracelets, lockets. In all enough to  utoclc a country store. Every piece had  been removed from its card, and there  was no name or message, Jt was recognized aa belonging to our Jewelry  department, but how so much got away  without being missed remains a mystery. Such a quantity could hardly  bave been taken by a regular shoplifter. One theory Is that some one in  tbe department took It and afterward  acknowledged the theft at confession  and the priest ordered the Jewelry returned to us. We have had several  cases of that kind.  On another occasion we received a  box of expensive handkerchiefs. Within was a card. It read: "I am afraid  tho innocent will suffer, so I send these  back to you, although I know you  don't need them and I do."  Whenever any one asks at the desk  for any article tliey have lout In   thc  store we ask for    a description.     It  would be amusing If it were not annoying to see how indignant the average  woman gets at this question.   8he considers it an Imputation that she Is not  honest, and she often resents lt ln the  most energetic mariner.  i     Altogether   the life of   the  man   In  ! charge of the "Lost and Found" desk  I is by no means pleasant,  ONE" CENT A YEAH  la tb_ *<_1_T. That Frtinlc Lynch Will IU  celva from the Government.  Iowa County, Wisconsin, lays claim  to having the lowest-salaried official in  the employ of the United States Government. The Government hires  Frank Lynch for I cent a year to carry the mall between Dodgevllle, the  county seat of Iowa County, and Mineral Polut, nine miles distant.  It Is ta������ law that such employes shall  be paid quarterly, but Lynch, although  he has been carrying the malls regularly since last July, has as yot received  no quarters of a cent or check for those  amounts. The young man is not looking for any roniitances on his salary  until next July, when ho expects a  check for a whole cent. It is supposed  this will be the smallest check evor  Issued by tho Government and efforts  have already been made to secure possession of It. The mail carrier has received several offers of $15 or $20 for  the check, but he has so far warily  avoided any definite entanglements.  Both Dodgevllle and Mineral Point  have railroads, but there Is none between the two towns. The trip from  one place to the other by rail is so  roundabout that lt is out of the question, so passengers and mail are drivan  across country. Whoever has the contract for carrying the mall feels that  he ls certain of all the passenger trade,  for no one has yet had the courage to  compete for passenger business with  the United States mall carrier. For  this reason the transfer of the mail Is  deemed a valuable privilege.  Every four years the post office department advertises for bids and the  contracts to lowest bidders for transfer  of mall sack. Last year there was the  liveliest competition ever known for  the Dodgeville-Mlneral Point contract,  Several different men signified their  Intention of going Into the contest, and  the "talk" was kept up until each bidder knew he would have to go pretty  low to get the prize, the man who then  held the contract had been receiving  about $40 per year" for carrying the  mall. It Is said that when the bids for  the new contract, were opened In  Washington it was found that the  three lowest offers for carrying the  mall per year were 1 cent, 39 cents and  $1.50. Frank Lynch, being the 1 cent  bidder, was awarded the contract for  four years.  'WOMEN THE CAUSJ5  BIG BATTLE LOST THROUGH THE FAIR  SEX. <���������  Drink Plenty or Water ami Us Healthy.  There is no doubt that we do nol  drink enough. Our bodies consist  largely of water, and the average man  needs to drink from four to six pints  of water daily In order to maintain  health. This is the amount of -water  eliminated from the body by means ol  the kidneys, the skin and lungs. It is  evident that a fresh supply is constantly needed to replenish this lost aid in  the process of digestion and carry  away matter.  If the amount of water Imbibed Is not  sufficient for-all .'-this*.the health? must  suffer. Air. water arid food are the essentials of life.in the order given.

It has also been tried as a remedy-for  Insomnia.  Many nervous troubles would be  greatly benefited by increasing the  amount of water consumed, and constipation Is largely the result of an inadequate supply of water.  One of the reasons people thrive at  mineral springs ls that outside of an.  medicinal properties the springs possess they drink much more water than  at home.  Generally speaking, the theory advocated by the best pbsicians now-a-  days is to drink often and much. It  cleans the system, Increases circulation and helps to make a clear complexion.

Tlver at Pennsgrove, on the New Jersey  side. They are all that is left of the  Passaic and the AJax, Both of which  bad proud records during the days of  'til.  The AJax cost $750,000 to build In  1862, the Passaic $600,000. Eoth were  sold for $50,000 to Henry A. Hitner'a  Sons, contiactors, who bought them for  the old Iron in them. It Is proposed  to sell this old Iron for the purpose ol  making steel, and the metal may be  a part, In the future, of some new terror of tbe sea.  Both tbe vessels were at one time  convoys of the Mon'tor, and it was a  curious coincidence that the Passaic,  which was bought at the Pensacola  navy yard ln Florida, came within an  ace of sinking when off Cape Hatteras.  where the old Jvfonltor was )ost ln d  gale. \  So far only the crowbar and tha  sledge hammer have been used In dismantling the famous old-timers, but  now the contractors expect to be compelled to use dynamite on the vessels  During the war the Passaic took  part In many engagements and wa9  pyt out of commission at Philadelphia  June 16, 1865.

Tlio Failure oftho Jameson Raid ������nd tbo  Ilattle of Flodden Field are Said to navo  Heen JU������t Tlu-ougU tho Agency of the  Von-tale* __ .  Many as the cases are of battles *won  through the agency of women of the  twpe of Boadicea and Joan of Arc^  there can be no denying the fact tha*  equally numerous, if not more so, are  those of victories spoiled by tbe fair  box and of battles lost owing to feminine machinations.  There are many, says Tlt-Blts. who  assert that the failure of tho Jameson  raid at the outset was brought about  by women. President Kruger is in the  habit of employing countless detectives, both male and female, In the  Transvaal as well as abroad. Tho  barmaids of Johannesburg, for example, were said to be in the pay of  Oom Paul. There ladles, by means ot  their propensities for extracting confidences, are alleged to have wrung  from some of the raiders long before  the raid itself was entered upon the  fact that it was forthcoming. The  consequence was that when it came  about Cronje was fully prepared.  France can point to a number of  cases in which victories connected  with the Republic have been spoiled  by women, and tbe whole course of  events changed in consequence. For  example, the fall of General Boulangcr  was brought about by a member of tha  fair sex. But for the Vlcomtesse de  Eonnemaln there Ib the chance that he  might have become the ruler of  France. The lady induced Ulm to puy  her a visit-on the night of his election  as a member of the Chamber of Depu-  tl.i, whfrn, ha.1, he refrained from so  ti-jing, anil lnatoad march-id upon the  elsyee, as his partisans begged bim to  do, the history of the Republic might  have been entirely altered.  Somewhat similar is the old world  case of Hannibal, whose wife was the  unintentional cause of his fall and the  failure of his once successful armies.  The great General was so foolish as to  marry when he should have been devoting all his time to the conduct of  military affairs. His troops became  utterly demoralized during the period  of his honeymoon, with* the result that  they were rendered quite unfit for arduous service, and never regained their  former standard of discipline.  Again, In this connection, there Is  the case of James IV. of Scotland, who  Ib said to have lost the battle of Flodden Field through a woman. It Is  argued that if the King had seized the  opportunity given to him to occupy a  favorable position wherein to meet the  English forces, the battle that ensued  might have bad a very different ending.

Thus did they frequently 'earn defeat  for the Spaniards, who often admitted  the natives Into their camps imagining them to be hostle to the invaders.  A woman, too, is reported to have  lost Alsace and Lorraine to the French  and helped to bring about the Franco-  Prussian war by regularly learning tho  Tesults of the French Cabinet meetings  while she was entertaining one of the  republican Ministers, the report of  these results being, despatched to Germany without delay.  inicmsKTcttir.  . Here ia a good illustration of how  assiduous the United States Post Oflice  "Department is in following up mail  whicl; .^t is requested to look for and  assuro.'ltself of delivery.  A lady in Boston sent a letter to  tier son In Manila on Jan. 10, and as  It occurred to her after she had mailed  It that the address was incomplete, in  that it did not contain the number of  the regiment, in which her son served,  she wrote a letter to the Boston postmaster the same day, giving him the  full address and asking htm to trace  lhe letter and supply the deficiency.  She will now be Informed that the letter, which she said wns important,  has reached Its destination, the authorities in Manila having isolated it  (rom the bulk of soldiers' mail and  completed the address.  After the necessary investigation in  the Boston post office the postmaster  sent a communication to the Sin  Francisco office, tlirough which most  of the military and naval mall goes,  and explained to the postmaster, Hon.  W. W. Montague, that the address on  a certain letter which was despatched  from Boston via tbe Boston and Albany R. P. O. on train No. 10 was insufficient for its p'rompt delivery, and  he gave the full address. At San  Francisco the matter went through  the hands of the postmaster and the  superintendent ot mails, and on Jan.  18 it was referred to the clerk In  charge of the naval and military mail.  He made an investigation inquiry in  the office and found that the let'er  was probably received on Jan. 16 from  train No. 3, and despatched by steamer to Manila the same day. Consequently it could not be intercepted on  this side of tbe water, but ln the next  despatch to Manila the postmaster of  San Francisco sent all the papers relating to the letter to the Director  General of Posts at Manila, P. I., so  that the deficiency In the address  might be supplied there, if the letter  were found undeliverable. Now the  Boston postmaster has received a communication from Manila stating that  the letter ln question has been found.  The addressee's letter of Inquiry witb  the inclosed stamp for a reply, and all  the papers which have been made out  In the various post offices relating to  this letter, have been sent to her.-*  Boston Evening Transcript  $���������&������������������>'  eitj  To wax: guotl glns-tes.

We sat down on either side of tho  ������tble to a most successful and discus-  Ive tea. I took my cue from her conversation, and found I might be as un-  embarrassed as she was.  She spoke of Cairo.

The quality of a man's work depends  greatly upon tho mood ln whioh he  does It, and hfs mood, ln turn, ls influenced more or less sensibly by his surroundings. An anecdote borrowed  from the New York Sun shows how  true this ls, even in so prosaic a place  as a thread factory.  A party ������f women once had the  privilege of Inspecting a factory devoted to the manufacture of spool thread,  (Their cicerone waa the proprietor of  the factory, one of the largest and  most complete in the world.  Wihat most Impressed the visitors,  however, was not the size and evident  prosperity of the plant, but the beauty  of the place. Not only waa every hygienic and commercial comfort attended to, but so far as possible every aesthetic consideration was observed as  ���������well. 'Around" each wall of the spa-  otous, well-windowed apartments where  the work was done ran a broad, exquisitely painted frieze. The figures upon  the frieze were a dainty dancing company, beautiful ln color as well as in  form, ���������nd. at' to grace the wails of a  dwelling rather than-a mill. / '_ ;~  Finally one of the women, "a practical, plain-spoken dame, asked, the  owner why he made beauty such an  _I>_eot -       ^ .*. ..,,.. .  "I don't see the use of a frieze like  tbat ln a factory," she said, bluntly.  ���������'Why do you have It?"  N Olhe mill-owner smiled. "Well, come  to think of.it, lt is a very practical rea*  son," be said. "I find that It makes  better thread."  ___tltno__ ef a Babylonian lirlek  ' It Is marvellous what a mass of detailed Information -has come down to  us from the perishable brick tablets  Inscribed, or. rather -stamped before firing, with minute and complicated Inscriptions and preserved in the burled  libraries beneath tho   mounds.of   the  Tigris and Euphrates   Valley.     Prof.  Sayce is able, for Instance, to tell us  I from one   of these,    tablets   how   "a  | widow brought action before he royal  judges to recover her husband's property.    She stated that after their marriage she? and Ben-Hadad-Nathan had  traded together and that a house had  been purchased with a portion of her  dowery.   This   house, the   value   of  which was as much as 110 manehs, BO  shekels, or ������62 10s��������� had been assigned  to her ln perpetuity.   The half-brother  now claimed everything, including the  house.   The else was tried at Babylon'  before six Judges ln tbe ninth year ot  Nabonidus, and they decided in favor  of the plaintiff," for a woman's dowry  |ras her own property.   This might ba  an extract from the law reports of the  Times, and other   details of   ancient  Babylonian and Assyrian life are not  less precise.   "In the reign   of Ammi-  zadok three men rented a   field   tor  three years on   terms of   partnership,  agreeing to give the owner during the  first two years one pur of grain upon  each'acre.   The   whole of   the   third  harvest was To go to the   lessees   and  the partners were to divide the crop in  equal shares on the day of the harvest." This seems a   pleasant   kind ot  agreement, worthy nf imitation.   Tha  third year free of rent must have bees  iellghtful.  ++'_*'_4*-t4i*'_'_*e*l''i'*ii*l'*'t**M*+*-li*li  *  NEW  FALL  SUITINGS  Our metlinil of selection insures the  most satisfactory results to our  patrons.

Thoy report that a  considerable number camo to grief  over the most ordinary words, no  less than 177 writing "whether" . in  the familiar phrase -"weather, prop***  hecies." The candidates came from  all the States of the Commonwealth,  and the Commissioners make . some  severe comments on "the lack of  general education" disclosed by the  competition.  Mr. Owen Wister says that in pursuing tho Rocky Mountain sheep,  with a gun and a camera, lie once  witnessed an incident full of discipline, encouragement and instruction.  A sheep and Iamb wero grazing along  one of three well-marked terraces  which wero rimmed with walls of  rock.  Afto:* a proper period of relaxation, tho in oth or judged it timo to  go on. She mounted tho hill right  toward mo, not fast but steadily,  waiting now and thon, precisely as  other parents wait, for hcr toddling  child to como up with hor. Here  and there were bushes of somo closo,  stilt leaf, which she walked through  easily, but which wore top many fc-r  tho struggling child.  Tho lamb would sometimes get into the middle of one of theso nnd  find itself unablo to push '* through;  after ono or two* little efforts, it  would bnck out and and go round  somo other wny; and then I saw it  making haste to wliero its mother  stood waiting;. Upon ono of those  occasions the mothei* received it  with a manner that seemed almost  to say, "Good gracious! At your  age I found no-.trouble with a thing  of that kind."  While T was wondering what on  earth they would tlo when they found  themselves stepping upon the terrace  into my lap, tlio owe. found a way  she liked better, but'it" was severe  work for tlic lamb. The" mother, got  to the wall where she could mako  one leap of it. It was done in a  flash.  Meanwhile, the poor little lamb  was vainly springing at tho walls;  the jump was too high, for it. Its  front hoofs just grazed tho edge, and  back it tumbled to try again. Finally it blated; but the mother'deemed (his not a moment for indulgence.  She gave not tho slightest attention  to tho cry for assistance. There was  nothing dangerous about' the placo,  no unreasonable hardship in getting  thc best of the wall; and by.her own  processes, thought or Instinct," sho  Icit-ltarrtAilJti'to meet ono of the natural difficulties of life, and"so gain  self-reliance.  ���������The mother did undoubtedly not  use the words "self-reliance" or  "natural difficulties," but it she  had not her sheep equivalent for  what those words impart, her spejios  would long ngo havo perished off lho  earth.

Tlie  members of this wicked secret band*  of nro called   Nuningoes.  Na ni ngo is a name familiar only  to students of West.

In Italy n member of tho Mafia Is*  not more dreaded thnn is tho Nanin-  ������o  of  C'ujba.  Tho Naningo's secret society is, ns  old as Cuba itself.

Those meetings finally bc-  camo mere orgies, and out of stich a  condition was developed the nid'dil'ion-  al feature of plotting crime. t-ow  whites woro admitted to mciriborsthlp,  oral now tlie society is composed almost, entirely of whito men.

These llg-  ures, of course, illustrate the relative importnaco of the industry in  tho     various    countries. Further  tables emphasize this point by showing that far more persons are employed in nnd ubout the mines in tho  United Kingdom thnn anywhere else.

The kiss was a lie, and a lie is a  foul thing; but thu Recording Angol  lias surely written tlie sin in tho  faintest of characters in his book,  for tlie words that gentle, ugly Harriot obediently spoke were, and had  always  been,  true.  And, with the kiss of deceit on his  brow, n happy man passed into th'e  great Unknown, wliero, if thorn is  mercy, he never learned tlio truth.  qu  Ho wn.s scowling when h'e laid  back again on the smoothed pillow,  for it is hard indeed to be ill when a  beautiful wife and a prosperous business dangle tanltilisingly, and call  mockingly to him who was so mighty  . yesterday to como to-day and reap  the harvest for which he had worked  so hard.  Harriet turned away, cut to th'o  quick by the' note of irritation. Sho  knew it was foolish, and that Philip  Chcsffey had enough to try him, if  any* man had; but she foil it, nevertheless.  He cauglit her look as she turned,  and a touch of remorse swept ovor  him.  "Littlo sister," ho -said, clasping  lier hand, ���������'tnko n'o'notice of mo. .

II.  Harriet  tvas  the lirst to learn     of  ' the  lilght.     She had  feared    for    so  hoy  fund  he  usual   bail  is  capelin.  When, fish   are plentiful  it  takes   a  very '.short  time  to   lill  a  boat    with  cod.    A number of tho fishermen liavo  trained dogs to assist tliem in catching  lish.  Tlie rapidity  with, which   the fislier-  1 men   haul . up   their  long lines -whon  thoy  feet a bile robs tho fis^h  almost  entirely     of  life  and   breath  by     tho  time it reaches the surface of the sea.  It comes to the top as completely exhausted   as  a  salmon   t'hat  lias    been  played by an angler until ho can tail  it  with  his  liand  and  so  avoid     thp  necessity of galling.     Tt is one thing,  however,  to bring n   heavy cod to the  surface   of   tlio   water   and   quite    another  to  get  it  into, the boat.   Galls  and   landing   nets   are   unknown      to  these toilers of  the sea;     If they can  lift Ilie fish into tho boat by tho line,  all  is  well;   but  this     is  often   wliero  they fail.  If the iisli is largo and but slightly  hooked,   as     is   often   the  case.     the  liook breaks    away    from  its  mouth  when the attempt, is mado to haul  it  from  llio water.     The fisli,  still   quite  inanimate  in .manner  and  in  appearance,  floats  away from  tlie  boat    on;  the. surface of    tlic waves.     This     is  only   for   a   moment,   however,  fisher's trained     dog.     often  without  waiting for a signal from his master,  leaps over  tlie gunwale of  the  boat,  plunges into thu sen, swims after tho  floating lish  and  .SETZES IT IN HIS MOUTH.  Returning     consciousness,   hastened  by  the new sensation*? of being taken  entirely  from     the  water  and   firmly  gripped between  tho jaws  of  its  captor,   often     produces   lively  struggles;  on  the   part    of the   fisli,  which add  considerably to  the difficulty ..th'c. dog  has  in  swimming back with his burden to the boat.    The dog rarely releases    his     hold, upon  his  wriggling  captive until snfo  with  it within  tho  boat.  Sometimes    these dogs have  larger  game than codfish to struggle with in  tlio     water.

T'he dogs employed by the fishermen of Newfoundland and Labrador  nre by no means the specimens of  canine intelligence usually known as  Newfoundland ������dogs. They more  nearly resemble Esquimaux dogs than  anything    else,  and  nro often     quite  red velvet, with inner facing of  shirred tulle, in white, palest pink  or blue.

The silken bodice might also bo called  a cont, as it was close fitting nnd  extended below the belt lino in ripples  laced  with very pale  pink satin.  Tlie sleeves deserve a paragraph' by  themselves. Tliey were formed of  three puffs, but at each di.ision ot  thc"puffs there wns a turned back  cuff, making threo distinct cuffs for  each sleeve. Tlicsc wore finished with  a narrow 'putting of red tnlTcta gathered in the centro with red and  cream lace. Finishing the sleeves  were deep rullles of lace an'd creani  and  red  chiffon.  Women who gasped at thc extra-  vangance of trimming a gown with  two or three kinds of lace when the  fashion was first introduced, will bo  inconsolable at the announcement  that two or three more varieties nro  to be added as the season advances.  As to the kinds of lnco it matters  littlo, for if th'e grandmother's elicst  boasts a bit of real point or old  rose, it will hobnob with nn imitation in tlie friendliest manner.

The economical-minded mother will  be glad to learn that there aro no  marked cliangios in tlio styles for children this season. The rule is strict  simplicity, and whether the. material  is tlie finest broadcloth or thu--most'  inexpensive serge, the model remains  the same. For boys, th'e'middy', suits  and th'e Russian blouse are the only  two styles. Of the two tlio blouso  siiit7=st*ems-*_nost=a.ttra<ilive,-*_the_long,=  fu,ll "middy" trousers seeming rather  outro on a small boy. Th'o blouse  has a broad collar and is worn with  a leather belt and full kneo trousers.  Drown seems to replace tlie over  popular dark blue tbis season. For  best, these suits nro made up in  velvet, velveteen or broadcloth*: for  etery-duy use, serge and corduroy  aro liked, tlle latter having sjiecial  wearing qualities. Khaki i.s used a  good deal nnd is excellent for liuril  wenr.  Little girls wear the blouse of the  middy suit with gathered or pleated  skirts. Tlie hitter remain absurdly  short, .being even above tho knocs.  Tlie exaggeratedly long waist still  obtains.  A pretty dross for a small girl  h'as a medium, low round neck' with  deep turnover frill'or collar made of  sections of the material put together  with insertion and edged with lace,  lliis waist is,gathered full.and sewed  to th'e abreviatcd akirt,' which litis  four smiill tucks as trimininj.'. Tlio  full bishop, sleeves aro gathered lo a  [plain wristband, and the dress is  [worn over a guiiupe. or the low nock  is filled in with tucking finished witli  a bil of lace. edge.  Shepherd plaids and tartans in  small designs are much" liked for little girls' dresses and for boys' kilts.  A detachable and washable sailor collar is a judicious adjunct for any-  small child's costume, as it adds  much to Fne. style without much cn-  pense or  troublo.  For school girls there is nothing  much' prettier tlinn tlie shirt waist  suit, made up in plain serge, small  sh'cph'errf checks or Scotch plaid's.  This makes a very suitable dress for  th'c school if-oni. A more elaborate  mode is on the same lines, bul lias  a skirt trimming of graduated bands,  longer in front and shortening toward the back, stitched, and with a  other, di*  friendl.ost  soil.

Somo remarkable statements ns to  tho enormous wnsto of South African  army rations are reported in the  Natal Advertiser, in connection with  the prosecution of natives for stealing condemned stores which had  been buried us manure.  The evidence, givon upon ontli, of  Mr. Robert Cheves, mmnnger for  Messrs. R. Spencu & Co., of th'o Reunion Sugar Estute.**. was that two  years ago, when the nillitury condemned largo quantities of army rations, ho got 250,001) coses from  them for the jmirposc of manuring his  cane crops.  This statement, sitys tho Advertiser*, discloses several hitherto unpublished facts. Upon the witlidrawul.pf.  the military forces from South Africa  it was found that lai'gc quantities of  milltiiry rations had accumulated at  various centres, and thc local markets wero overflowing with tinned  foods. The stuff hnd to bo got rid  of somehow; and so, in some, places,  tlio rations wero bu.rnt. Other local  consignments Were thrown into tlte  son.  The last h'ugo licnp of rations liavo  now borne fruit in munificent sugar  harvests. For several months truck-  load upon truck-load of cases of military rations were taken to Reunion  and elsewhere. Thu cases each contained six 'dozen tins. These tins  Woro buried nil over th'e Capo fields.  Th'o Advertiser estimates the cost  to the llritish taxpayer of this one  consignment alone at over a million  and adds tliat if t'he nmoiint. of army  ration.** thnt were enst into the sea  nnd consigned to the sugar estates  on tlio south and north' coasts of  Natal worn also valued at would bo  found that several million pounds  sterling were thus disposed of.  parents wore natives, ar.d lie occupied  the position of mayor in I.S93-1.  Th'o mnyoi'-elcct lins a most romantic  antl   interesting   story   to   tell   . of  his  early  lifo.

Frequently   their     lives  wero  in   danger,  nnd  when  finally  tliey  reached     their  Journey's   end   they   found   that     old  Sonrjeniit  had   died   n   fow  days     beforo llieir arrival and without  lirivin/-}  in.i'ln  a   will   in   their  favor.

I have noticed in hisj paper,  that since the last Provincial election  he has been talking of the Conserva-  lives in a vory uagentlonianly|manner.  Ho puts one in, mind of a miserable  cut- with a bad sore.  Hi.** attacks on iho member for this  riding and the McBride Government  in late issues of his paper, would lead  one to believe that" the-Editor of the  Mail is sulTering from softening of the  brain. Again I ask the Editor of the  .Mail to announce in his next issue the  source from which he got his informa-  tiomin regard tp Mr. ._Xti.y_.oj*. and Jibe.  attitude of the Conservative party  .towards him. So far as' I can learn  liiu Conservative party ha e every  confidence in Mr. Taylor, and outside  Iiid Conservative party, the lumbermen of this riding should havo no  '���������utility nfcairi.it Mr. Taylor, who has  been untiring in his efforts to see that  lho lumbermen were given every consideration .and justice, in all matters  ell'octing the lumber industry.

Quinan, Mgr  RED CKOSS DRUGI-TORE,  No Trace of Lost Children.  Nanaimo, Jan 16.���������About 11 o'clock  Tuesday forenoon last, Mrs. J. Kogers,  of Nicol street,  missed her little girl  aged three, and another aged Jive, the  latter the daughter of Mrs. D.  Jones,  who was staying in  the same liouse.  The children had been playing on the'  street and had gone south in the direction of Chinatown.   Mrs. Kogers, having a baby to look after,  informed a  passerby and the police  were notified  before   noon,   no   particular  anxiety  being felt at the time, as it was never  supposed the little ones  had  I raveled  far.    However, casual search failed to  discover them, and then a hunt was  made more thoroughly, wliich revealed  the iact that the children had gone to  Parker   Williams'   place   during   the  afternoon, at Chase river.   At 1.30 the  =same=afternoon-the*crew-on=the-E;-(S:  N. railway  wrecking   train   saw   the  children at the crossing of the railway  at Southiield road,  nearly four iniles  from home. Tliey also saw a Japanese  near lhem coming towards Nanaimo.  Search parties  liave failed entirely  to get a truce of the children  beyond  this with tho exception of tracks near  Southiield shaft, a quarter of a mile  further on near the big swamp, which  is deep in places.   The Japanese  wus  traced to Nanaimo,  thence  to  Union  and back  by sleamer  to Ladysmith,  when   provincial constables arrested  him.    lie is a married man and works  un a ranch owned by Provincial Constable Cassidy at Ladysmitli. The Jap  said he saw the children, passing them  on tho road,   but   did   not   speak   to  tbem.    Hundreds  of ihen have been  out every day,   but  no   sign   of   the  missing ones can be found. One theory  is that they have fallen into a swamp,  another that, they  were   lost   in   the  bush and perished in the cold of Tuesday-night.    Still'others fear foul play'  or kidnapping owing to  the complete  disappearance.       Tonight . the     city  council-offered a reward of'$250,  and  will ask the provincial government to  augment it.  CARD OF THANKS  The undersigned hogs leave to ten-  dor thanks to Kire Brigade No. 2 for  tlie prompt and efficient manner  which was exercised in putting out  the fire in the Palace restaurant and  to the citizens generally for their  kindness and consideration during  I ho dolay and trouble "occasioned by  the Ure.

With a clash, bang, bti-r-r, the  stamps at the Eva mill commenced tu  drop on the morning of Jan. *1 as the  mill was put into commission for the  tlrsL timo since operations were  suspended last August owing to the  trim 1 and mine buildings being burned  out by the terrible forest firo that  swept the lower slope of Lexington  mountain. All the machinery has  since been overhauled by master  mechanic J. T. Vogler, and when the  power was admitted to the water  wheels on Wednesday tho rniachinery  started without a hitch and is now  working like a charm. Tlie tram,  -which has been rebuilt under the supervision of Mr. J. AV. McLood, also  went into commission on the same day  as the task of transporting oro fro.u  mine to mill. Owing to all the cables  being brand new, the tram is working  a little stiff, but this will disappear  when the cables got limbered up aftor  a few weeks usage. Construction of  the baby tram which will connect the  upper working with the main train is  progressing nicely, all the towers being in position. When this tram is  completed, ore for mill treatment will  be available from all parts of the mine.  The resumption of operations at the  Eva mill is hailed with delight hy  Caiubornites, as the sound of the falling slumps echoing through the town  seems to instill a confidence that cannot bo explained. It is anticipated  that in a littlo while thc Eva Gold  Mines, Ltd., will install a compressor  to facilitate development, the project  now being under discussion.  THE BE.V.TK1CE  Rawhiding of ore from the Beatrice  mine to Camborne is proceeding  merrily, the trail being in excellent  condition, and to date something "like  200 sacks have been brought down.  The weather is all that could bo  desired for that particular kind of  work.  THE SILVER DOLLAR,  Thirteen hundred feet of wooden  pipe arrived tit Beaton this week for  the Elwood Tin work eis Mining Oo. to  be used for conducting water from  Mohawk creek to the Silver' Dollar  mill for power purposes. A contract  for hauling tlie pipe from Beaton to  the Silver Dollar litis just been awarded to Crawford & Co. The pipe will  he hauled up at once to take advantage of tlie' favorable - weather now  prevailing. ~~F. C. Green, P. L. S.,  was at the Silver Dollar surveying the  dilfeient claims which comprise this  group. Work at the mine is progressing in the usual favorable  manner.  MAMMOTH   GHOUP  All tiie ore that was rawhided from  the Mammoth group, on Goat Mountain, on the mouth of Buhy Silver  creek, has been hauled into town and  is now heing transported to deep  water landing at Beaton. The shipment consists of about 40 tons of very  high-grade galena ore, in which there  is considerable grey copper. The  tonnage tvas to have been larger, but  owing to the severity of the weather  011 the summit of Goat Mountain,  where the Mammoth is situated, raw-  hiding bad to be suspended. It is the  intentirn to resume operations at the  property in March",' by which time it  is thought that the severity of the  winter weather will be over, when an  effort will be made to transport the  remaining ore to the timber line,  from whence it can be taken at any  time.
