 Presents an Unequalled Field for the Developer  of   Mineral   Claims   showing   Gold,   Silver,  Copper, Lead, and Zinc, as Well as for  the Investor in  Producing Mines.  / '  1   ^���?'lI"r<ib,:&��4  WiV  , RAILROADS  Already Completed or Under Construction and  Steamboat   Lines, in   Operation   Make   the  Mining   Camps   and   Towns   in   Kootenay   Accessible   the   Year   Round.  SECOND   YEAR-NO. 23.  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,   MAY  12,   1894.  ONE   DOLLAR  A YEAR.  SQUANDERING   PUBLIC   MONEY.  The Big- Bond Road Will not be Utilized if  Built.  Tlie people of Kevelstoke have been  clamoring for ti wagon road Lo the Hig  Bend country for the last two years, and  their clamoring, now that an election is  about to take place, is to be heeded. The  distance from Kevelstoke to the placer  mines in tlie Big Kend is about sixty-live  iniles. and the cost of tlie wagon road will  not be less than $(ii.,()()0. Yet. merely to  gain votes for its candidate, the government lnts commenced the work* with a reputed appropriation of $S..(.0.  At present there are not to exceed forty  men, in all, in the Big Bond country, and  thirty of the number are prospectors who  went in this spring. It i.s claimed limb of  those who went in this spring, nob a dozen  will remain until the snow leaves so that  they can prospecb; but that they will return as soon as their '"grub" begins to run  short.  10von if the wagon roar! was built bo  Steamboat canyon, it distance of eighb  miles from Kevelstoke, it would bo of no  benefit to the Big Bend country, however  much benefit ib would be to those who cub  and sell wood in Kevelstoke. Intheearly  rlttys steamboats ran up tho river as far a.s  Laporte. about fifty miles above Kevelstoke, and tho distance from there to bhe  mines on McCulloch and French creeks is  nob to exceed twenty iniles. If steamboats could be run in the early days they  could be run now���if there was business  to .justify their running. If there is no  busi ness to jiisti f y the running of a steamboat,then surely ���'���there is no business to  warrant an expenditure, by the '.govern-'  inent, of .$05,000 on a wagon road.  The brail between Kevelstoke and the  Big Bend country .could be put in first-class  condition by the expenditure of $-1000, or  less; and a trail will meet bhe requirements of; any mining camp in which loss  than a dozen men can find .profitable employment."'.'  Furthermore, not a single government  agent bhab has held oflice in West lvootenay has favored bhe building of this  wagon road; in fact, they have all reported against the expenditure of money  for' that purpose. However, an election  is on, and money will be squandered on'  useless-roads and brails in West Kootenay  in ISO 1 the same as it was in East Kootenay iu 1S90. Colonel Baker was returned  in East Kootenay bi* this ..species of  bribery in 1890, anrl the government candidate's to be ".returned in the north riding of West Kootenay by the same species  of bribery in 1801.  Should Put  Himself in Tlieir Place.  The action of mayor Kane  of  Kaslo in  ordering closed the saloons of M.  D. i\Ia-  houey, Carson 6c Mack, and  Thomas Tre-  nery, because of their inabi  on business on   the site of  for which the licenses were  be in conformity with the law, but it certainly is an' injustice.   These men were  all losers by the  fire and  are unable  to  build.   They  have also  been at considerable expense in   fitting up their present  places of business.    As  their licenses rlo  not- expire for several months, they should  be allowed to continue business until the  expiration of their licenses.    Mayor Kane  she aid place  himself in  their place, and,  perhaps, he would then view   the  matter  ina different light.  iii by bo carry  the buildings  gran ter!, may  Not Unanimous for Buchanan.  The government party adherents have  all along claimed that Ainsworth was  solid for 0; O. Buchanan. .Judging by the  reception he mot with on Saturday night,  when he addressed about twenty-five electors and residents, Ainsworth will go  pretty near solid for Hume. "Tom" Mc-  (iovern, on being "asked, refused to take  the chair: anrl not a cheer, or a stamp, or  any indication of approval greeted the  speaker during tlie delivery of tho address.  Before adjourning, .someone moved that  the candidate treat the house; but that  beingagainsthis principles, Mr. Buchanan  let the boys go home dry.  Wage Dispute Settled.  W. II. Sheffield, who loft Nelson for a  better place three years ago. returned  today. He has been in the Okanagan  country, Washington, which, lie says,  will yet bo a good camp. Me was also in  Trail Creek district lately, and reports the  difficulty between the men and the Le  Koi Mining Company settled, the manager of the company agreeing to pay the  going rate in the camp, which is iiow'$.'..f*0  a day for miners. Some fifteen men are  at work, most of them putting in new  machinery.   He Crows Loudest Who Crows Last.  Gilbert Malcolm Sproat lias quit editing  Tho Miner anrl has gone into tho chicken  business. One day this week he proudly  exhibited one of his "roosters," with head  and tail feathers erect, as emblematic of  the success with which his political opponents are meeting in government  strongholds like Kaslo, i'or instance.  Snow Still Interfering With Work.  G. Kleinschmidt reports having men at  ���work sinking for bedrock on the lower  bars of his company's ground on Salmon  river. Jt is yet too early to begin work  on the higher benches that have been  tester!, owing to the snow.  Diamond Drilling in South Africa.  Ii. A. S. Kerlinayne contributes a readable paper containing'' much valuable  matter on this subject. The price of boring by diamond drills, is, to a great extent, dependent on   the price  of carbon-  a.tcs.    In 188!) Kimberly bolt cost in Natal  7s. to Ss. per carat; "in July, 1800, this had  risen to 00s. per carat.    During  the year  1S.MM.1, iu Natal, four of these drills (three  hand and one steam drill) borer! -S021 feet,  (the steam drill bored  191.3 foot 2 inches of  this depth tit a cost of ��,77A (is. oil., or 7s  I l.}d, por foot), at a cost of 'is. 9rl. per foot,  which   amount    would    be    slightly   increased, if an allowance wa.s  niarle for a  percentage  representing the   annual  depreciation  of plant.   This cost compares  favorably with   that of boring  in  other  parts of the world.    In one of tlie Austra-  liiiii colonies, the  cost of  boring   was (as  per the annual   reports of  tho   mines department):    hi  I8SI.   II   drills  bored  080-1  feet at a cost of l'2s. lOd. per foot: in 1885,  12 drills bored   ll.A2r> feet at a cost of  I9s.  Id. por foot: in  188(5. 10 drills bored  05:59  feet ata. cost of lis. I l;,'d. per foot; in 1887,  ") drills borer 1 -'.097   feet at a cost of _C1.2s.  ���lid. per foot.    The loss in diamonds during the year 1890-91 (mines department of  Natal) wa.s only 1 1-f.d. per foot,  which is  highly satisfactory when the large amount  ofdiorito  passed   through  is taken  into  consideration.    A. company in tho Transvaal bored A744 feet, ('.steam or hand drilling) at a cost of   I .'is. Id.   por  foot in  diamonds alone, and a single boring  by the  same company cost=tI. Vis.  7d.   per   foot.  The nature of the strata drilled through,  however, was very different from that of  the coal measures, being rpiart/.ites, hard  quartz,   conglomerates,   and   hard   sandstones; the   conglomerates   would   prove  especially destructive   to the  diamonds.  During the year 1891-92  the Natal   mines  department, bored a total  depth  of (3171  feet  1 inch, at a cost of. 5s. 8d.  per  foot;  the; loss, of    diamonds    was,    however,  greater than  in  the previous year,  amounting to 7d. per foobrlrilled. .

NOT   INDEBTED   TO   A   GOVERNMENT  That   Kas   Done   Its   Best   to   Divert   Traffic  Northward.  The people of the Kootenay Lake towns  are beginning to realize  that they are indebted to the Davie government  for the  present stagnation of business and depression in   real estate values.   They are also  beginning  to  realize that  they need   not  expect any chage of policy if Mr.   Davie  is returned to power. They are'awakening  to the fact that the close political friends  of Mi-. Davie are men whose interests are  best- served if   the traffic   and   trade   of  southern Kootenay is diverted northward  --or   away  from  Kaslo, Ainsworth,  and  Nelson.    In fact, rlid not; Mr. Davie say to  the Kaslo delegation that waited on him  in regard to the  Kaslo 6c Slocan  railway,  that  his government, whether wisely or  not. would rlo till  in  its  power to divert  the traffic of  the Slocan   country  to  the  main   line of  the  Canadian   Pacific?   In  olher  words, Mr.   Davie favored  forcing  traffic from a natural channel   to an   unnatural one.  The result of this policy is now being  felt by every man who has invested money  in real estate, in mercantile enterprises,  and in .steamboats in southern Kootenay.  Ileal estate is unsaleable, merchants tire  doing little business, and steamboats are  not paying expenses. And, mark the  prediction, this condition of affairs will  continue as long a.s the government of  British Columbia i.s in the hand.-of men  wltose sole aim appears to be to allow a  few favorites to fatten at the expense  of the public.  Kootenay as a Sanitarium.  The climate of East and West Kootenay  is most salubrious. Neither the prostrating, heats and ��� destructive cyclones nor  the Arctic .frosts and-deadly blizzards  of the western states are known. The  consumption"breeding fogs and countless  insect pests that swarm in other hinds tire  strangers to Kootenay. The warmest;  days in summer .'ire ,modified by soft  winds, laden with sweet /'odor of wild  flowers antl the invigoratiugaromti of the  fir, the cedar, the hemlock, and the pine;  while the nights are seasons of transcendent loveliness, rendered so-"by the gentle  mountain breezes thttt waft heal ill anil  vigor to the sleeper, in May and June  occasional thunderstorms cool the ttir and  freshen the face of nature. The winters, ,  witli- tlie exception of a few days, tire  ���spring like, the snow only remaining three  short months except at great altitudes.  Malarious fever and pulmonary, consumption are exceedingly rare, and are usually  imported cases, while smallpox, measles,  and other kindred diseases are shorn of  their terrors by the purity of the atmosphere. Scrofula.salt rheum, catarrh, and  similar inherited, taints of the blood are.'  in tt few. years, almost entirely eradicated  from the system by the healing properties'  of Kootenay's matchless climate. Kootenay may be justly "called-''Canada's -.sanitarium.'.'   Not the Whole Truth. ���  Sonic people predict a revolution in about WOO between  Hritish Columbian old timers" dccendeiits. ICnclishmcn  ami their tlccendeiils. as against eastern Canadians anil  their dccendeiits. The feeling .it present is very bitter.  At the polls the old provincials vote solid for their representatives, while eastern Canada is almost -.united against  an !.nglish candidate. At the capital the national feeling; is most intense. Native Hritish Columbians are  dubbed by Canadians as "Siwashes" and "inossbacks."  while long-sull'ering Canadians are styled by .englishmen  as "Canny Canucks." and by Hrilish Columbians us  "North American Chinamen." -Two years ago justice  Iirake of the Hrilish Coluinbiasupremc court, at 11 public  dinner, delivered himself of that now famous remark:  "I have yet to meet a Canadian gentleman." Xo,doubt  the expression was made use of thoughtlessly, but it was  said at the time 10 voice the sentiment, of the Knglish in  Hrilish Columbia, and is like the proverbial. red rag in  the present-.trained national relations. In the coining  I'lcclinns for tlie local legislature Knglish candidates are  lo a great extent pitted again.-! Canadian candidates.  The above appears in the Winnipeg  Free Press as a telegram from Vancouver.  It is not the whole truth, forin this part  of Hritish Columbia the Canadian Iamb  and ' the 'Knglish lion dwell together in  peace and unity: loving .each other so  dearly that the'stranger within our gates  is Ictl to believe that the gentle little lamb  "bosses" the roaring big lion. However,  this apparent peace and unity may only  be a blind to catch votes for the Davie  government candidate on elect ion da v.  Shirking Their Liabilities.  It seems that lhe insurance companies  thai had policies in force on buildings destroyed by the lire at Kaslo are raising  quibbles, in order lo evade payment- of  lo-x'.s. I'liviiiiint of the Ins-, on the l.nrke  bank building has been refused, on the  ground that the insurance company did  not consent to the ns-ignmciil made by  Burke. The payment of the loss on the  Buchanan tV Dawes block is also refused.  The refusal being on I lie ground that the..-  buildiiig stood on lots lliat wy.<r I'.'.vi"owned  by Buchanan A: I h___-"es, riiey only having  an agrci::,v..*..'['���'o'f sale for the lots.

PLATFORM  OF   PRINCIPLES.  adoi'Ti.i. hy mci.i.<i.vr.:s i.\* convention on tiik 11th  til-* Al'lilL, 181)1.  Whereas, the men that upbuiltlhe Dominion of Canada  were not of one nativity, and if a healthy patriotic  sentiment in to pro.ai., antl only hy lhe growth ol  such a.sentiment can Canada take a place among hng-  lish-speaking nations, tlie respousibililies of government  must be entrustctl to men of known capacity, ami not to  men who by accident of birth imagine themselves rulers  by Divine right. Therefore, be il resolved-  First. That we hold a.s reprehensible the practice or  appointing non-residents lo ollicial positions in interior  district:", and we maintain that all oilices, where practicable, should be tilled by residents ol' the district wherein  the oliicial performs duty.  Second. Special antl private legislation not only consumes too groat a partot tho tiiiiuliiat_>hould be dcvoled  to the consideration of public measures, but it leads to  practices that lend to lessen confidence in the integrity  of the legislative assembly, and through it an insidious  poison-'is' disseminated that in lime will lind ils way  throughout the whole organ ism of the hotly politic;  therefore?* we favor the enactment of general laws that  will reduce to a "minimum special legislation and tlo  away* with private legislation altogether.  Third. The interests of tlie province wore not  safe-guarded in the agreement between thegovernment  and tlie Nakusp & biocan Railway Conipany, and the  policy of the government in pledging the credit of the  Iirovince, in order that speculative companies may prolit  thereby, is to be condemned.:.  Fourth. Aftir making provision for the payment'of  the running expenses of tho government, expenditures  should be confined solely to tho building and betterment  of wagon roads and other works that arc for the free use  and benefit of the public-al.-largo, leaving to private enterprise the construction and operation of railways and  ail other undertakings for the use of which the public  arc required to pay.  Fifth. The speedy adjustment of tho differences between the province and the'Dominion,, to the end thai  the land.-within the railway belt along the Canadian'  JJacilic railway be thrown open to,settlement under tlie  land laws of the province; the amendment of the Land  Act so that it will be an Equitable'contract between  the province and the settler, eliminating all discretionary  powers of-the chief commissioner of lands and works;  also amending it so as to permit the outright purchase of  small tracts in all unsurveyed-'mountainous districts.  ���sixth. The timber lands of tlie province should be  held in trust for the future needs of its people, and nol.  handed over, under long leases, to speculative mill owners as a saleable asset.  Seventh. The development, "of the mining industry  should not he hampered by legislation 'that makes the  procurement of title to surface rights impossible: that  levies unequal taxation on working miners; antl that  makes il difficult to compel tlclinipicnt co-owners to pay  their share of assessment, work: therefore, we favor the  repeal of sections S and 15a of the Mineral Act. and a  revision of the sections relating to mining partnerships.  Kighth. The passage of an act, whereby water rights  for any specific'purpose .may be obtained us readily as  such rights arc now obtained for mining purposes under  the provisions of the Mineral Act.  Ninth. Tho cstablishinoi.l of a land registry for ICootcnay district.  Tenth. The holding in lvootenay district of terms ot  the coiuitv court at short intervals: extending the  power to issue capias to registrars of county courts in  districts in which tliere arc no resident judges; and the  passage of an ad that will allow lhe collection of small  debts in courts composed of justices of the peace.  Klovonth. The extortions to which laborers on railway  construction anil other works are compelled to .submit,  through lhe issuance of lime-cheeks, is alike discredit-,  able to the men who prolit. by such practices antl to the  government that makes no ell'ort to render such practices  impossible. The issuance of non-negotiable time-cheeks  ���should be made a punishable offence, and the issuance of  negotiable time-checks should only be allowable under a  law that would safeguard the rights of the party to whom  they are issued.  Twelfth. Contractors and sub-contractors on railways  should have a means of getting speedy redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by  the appointment of an ollicial arbitrator who shall be  a practical engineer.  Thirteenth. The government is to be -condemned for  the passage of a redistribution act that is not uniform in  ils provisions, and by wliich representation is neither  based on population, voting strength, nor contributed  revenue.   Resolved, that the government is to be blamed for  keeping in oflice in West lvootenay a gold commissioner  who is not competent to perform the unties of the ollice.  Resolved, that the attention of the government is  called to lhe necessity of liavingpnid constables stationed  at points on tlie International boundary line like Rykert \s antl Waneta.  Resolved, that it is of the utmost importance that trails  and wagon roads lie built to connect all mining camps in  AVest lvootenay with transportation roulcs that arc open  the year round.  Resolved, that the nominee of this convention be required to plcdgehimself to tlo his utmost lo carry out the  views expressed in the resolutions adopt ctl by this convention, antl that each delegate to this convention make  every ell'ort to secure the election of the nominee of the  convention.  Resolved, that the lands embraced, wiihin railway  grants should be immediately surveyed, iu order that  they be open lo settlement.  Resolved.-that the people living in the valley of lvootenay river between the lake anil the International boo miliary line and those living iu I-'ire Valley on Ihe west side  of f.ower Arrow lake are justly entitled lo until facilities,  and that wo deem it a duty to urge that post oilices be  . established at liykert's custom-house antl al a central  point iu Fire Valley.

Mr. Buchanan, if elected,  will help carry out the peculiar views ol" a  peculiar government. Mr. Hume, if  elected, will attempt to carry out the  views of the people who elect him. The  .nomination of the one  was dictated from  Victoria, and, perforce, if elected, he must  obey his'masters: the other secured his  nomination from the electors of the riding, anrl he will acknowledge no masters  other than the people amongst whom he  lives. .Mr. Buchanan will, perhaps, explain the beauties of tho caucus system on  the stump; but he will have a hard time  explaining away tin-fact that he is not  the choice of thegovernment party iu the  south ritling. however much he may be  the choice of Theodore Davie and the  Vancouver World.  ARE   TOO   COCKSURE,  The adherents of the government lake  it for granted that Mr. Davie tintl Mr.  Vernon and Mr. Turner and lieuleitant-  colonel Bilker will be returned tit tlie'com-  ing election, aud along with them a majority of the legislative assembly. They  also declare that the Opposition, even if  returned in lhe majority, are incapable of  carrying on a government. The adherents of the government are junta trifle too  cocksure, and when cornered admit that  {.he only man in lheir party with any  brains lo speak of is .Mr. Davie. They  admit that Mr. Vernon has no ability.antl  that the lands and works department  runs itself: they admit that Mr. Turner is  tt nice sort of man, but without either  brains or force; they admit that lieutenant-colonel Baker is an impracticable visionary anrl a source of weakness to the  government. Vet, while making the  above admissions, they claim that the  Opposition leaders arc weaker still. Well,  perhaps they are: but Beaven anrl Cotton  and Semlin and Sword will size.up':pretty  evenly with Davie and Vernon and Turner  and Baker, either in points of ability or  integrity or knowledge of the province.  And when the ballots are counted, it will  be found that three Opposition members  are returned from Victoria, one from  Nanaimo, two from Nanaimo .district,  two from .Vancouver, one from New  Westiniuter, four from Westminster  district, one from Vale, one from  Lillooet, and two from Kootenay, and  independent men from half adozen other  districts." The next government will be  made up of Opposition "incapables,"  without a doubt; and, more, if it goes  out of power a royal commission will not  hold a post-mortem examination on its remains.    CAN   HE   BE   TRUSTED?  The nominees of the two parties iu the  south riding of West Kootenay are personally known to half the electors in the  riding, 'and the other half know them by  repute. Before receiving the .-.nomination,  .J" Fred Hume, the nominee of the Opposition, rlid not preach temperance from the  housetops, nor was he ti frequenter of  saloons, lie was "sociable" when occasion  required antl drank when he "felt like it."  This he did openly.' lie has not changed  his habits or hi.s principles since receiving  the nomination, and i.s not likely to tlo  so. The nominee of the government.  George Owen Buchanan, was an apostle  of temperance before announcing his candidacy; he even went as far as to intimate  that.he disliked to sell .lumber to .-parties  whom he knew would use it in erecting  .buildings.in which liquor'would be sold.  He was a man who would neither buy,  sell, nor drink an "intoxicating draught."  Although differing with him. men respected him for the faith which he professed and lived up to. But since  receiving the nomination he has shown a  willingness to wink at and even goes as  far as to toy with the "evil" that he once  so strongly condemned. Js a man who  is willing to recant lite-long principles in  order to secure election to office to be  trusted, should he gain au election?-  A    LOPSIDED   GOVERNMENT.  in one breath the adherents of the Davie  government say that it is progressive anrl  has always shown au eagerness to  help on the development of interior districts like West Kootenay. and in the  next breath assert, that, unless government supporters are returned, the chances  of our being freed from the disadvantages  under whicli we labor are small. Do they  mean that the Opposition and its candidates know nothing of the requirements  of the district; that the four hundred  and odd electors who took part in the  nomination of Fred Hume know less, collectively, than the twenty-odd electors  who nominated G. (). Buchanan? If they  do not mean this, then they can only mean  that the Davie government is lopsided;  und if lopsided it can not be cither fair or  progressi ve.    Tiik people of Kaslo and Sew Denver  should take kindly to a government that  litis done and is doingits utmost to render  valueless their property interests. The  building of the Nakusp t\_ Slocan railway  with money supplied by the province litis  made the building of the Ktislo __ Slocan  railway by private capital improbable.  The government, by its action, said that  the owners of the townsite of Nakusp  wave better entitled to make 11 cleanup  than wove the owners of the townsite of  Kaslo. To the people of New Denver Ihe  government has said: Vou are entitled  to no consideration whatever, if your in  terests conflict with those of the men who  have acquired townsites tit the mouth of  Wilson creek nnd at the forks of Carpenter creek. Somehow, the men who  'own the "townsite' of Nakusp bear the  same names tis those who own the town-  sites at Wilson creek and tit the forks of  Carpenter creek.  No Dorii'f. the people of West Kootenay will take kindly to the candidates  that are favored by the Vancouver World,  ti newspaper that fought the best interests of the district for years---or up to the  time that it was subsidized by a gift of  town lots in ti iew boom towns.  JriHiicOAHTKR unseated and disqualified  both Fox and .Murphy in the St. Johns,  Newfoundland election case.  Tiik Minkr made an effort last week to  encircle captain Fitzstubbs with a glamour  of sympathy. It pronounces him an Eng-  lishman anil every inch a man. It will not  be disputed that he is an Englishman; but  many of the '���rough, strong boys" of the  mining camps in West Kootenay will  question the manliness of tiny man who  deprives laboring men of their wages and  merchants of tlie price of goods sold a-nd  delivered, as they will question the manlinesss of the man who will not demand an  investigation of charges that reflect on  his honor as a man anrl his integrity as an  official.        '   Remedy Better Than Cure.  A well-known local druggist says: "Most  people like a, little whisky and 1 don't  make many exceptions. I had one queer  customer, but 1 never gave him away.  He was a minister in high standing, anrl  almost fanatical prohibitionist."'He would  buy a quart bottle of whisky about every  ten days from me and always had it put  in a. peculiar bottle of his own. Ostensibly lie bought it for lung troubles, as lie  coughed occasionally. To the whisky I  always had to add 10 cents'worth of rock  candy, 5 cents worth of glycerine, and a  little quinine, but not enough of the  latter to make it bitter, and after awhile  'I omitted the quinine. Well, whisky,  glycerine, and sugar is an imaginary  remedy for colds, but it is a powerful  good drink. My reverend friend's lung  troubles continued for years. He is still  afflicted, and stilltakes the same remedy.  Otherwise he is a man in perfect health,  anrl   his lung trouble will never kill him."  VOTERS"   LIST.

It really seemed to the  more imaginative ones, that the refrain  '-of the car-wheels was, ������Sagebrush and  sand, sagebrush'ahd sand "  The weary afternoon dragged slowly  by, and the conductor of the dining-car  came .through to announce dinner���a diversion at least.  ���'Ah !" remarked one tourist .suddenly,  in a gratified tone; there's a typical scene  for you, me boy."  Against the red background made by  the rays of the setting sun, a short distance from the track, sat a solitary horseman, motionless, one hand resting on the  pommel of his saddle, the other in the act  of pushing back from his forehead his  wide-brimmed white hat. Then, just as  the rear car of the trains approached, he  suddenly took off the hat, waved it,  jammed his spurs into hi.s wiry little  bronco, and started to race with the train,  yelling at the top of his lungs. At the end  nf a qiiarler-inileorso, he slowed up, drew  his revolver, and fired a parting salute  into the air, accompanying tlie volley  with more wild howls.  The occupants'of the .Pullmans were  amused; they had not seen anything so  interest ing for a long time. The tourist  avIio had first -observed the horseman  sighed, stud declared he envied the cowboy���lie really did.  "How they..must enjoy it, this Avild,  i'ree life of tlie plains, without a worry or  a care���nothing to do but commune with  nature���when they feel restless, to bo able  to indulge in a wild, reckless gallop suitable to the mood���and���and���or���till that,  don't you know?"

He hangs out'is shingle an'gits a leetle  acquainted, an. then makes a dead play  f'r Norah, w'ich seems t' go all right;  Norah let'tin' on t! like th' duck quite  plenty. Oh, but he was sho' spoony on  her.

An'still, this  yere feller seems white an' decent, an'  'twas square on possible, t' hate 'im, none  whatever. So, when he offers t' join tlf  c'nniiittee, we says yes, o' course. He  wa'n't ;i real tenderfoot, ye know, and  acted like 'e had sand.  "Well, we keeps up tlf good work an'  ropes a. few gents, an' they gits quite ti  lot ca refill, but keeps on workin'. Then,  one night, when Ted was out yere, an' we  was settin' up late, avo hears a noise  among tlf hoine-hosses in tlf corral, an' I  says: 'O-ho! they're goin' intuh tlf boss  business, too, are they?' sin' me'n Ted  breaks f'r th' corral.  "They was five of'em ; but Ave was out  f'r business, an' cuts loose, tin' they don't  wait t" pick up tlf cuss we drapped, an'  I'll eat a rawhide ef it wa'n't Harwood !

"Next day me'n Tod hoi's a meetiif, we  tloes, an' settles tlf case,'an' that night we  goes t' th' e'uimittee-meetin' at Jeb Barlow's, where Ted gits up an' makes a game  o' talk.    Says he:  " 'Gents. I an'my partiner, Mr. Madden,  has made a real techiif discovery.

"And so she does. Oh, they's nothing  Ted wouldn't do for that there gyurl."  THE   TOWN   MARSHAL.  Years ago 1 knew a young fellow named  Dee Anderson.    And what a  pitiable object he was, afflicted   with   disease, white  swelling,  propped   up in   bed,  gradually  losing the bones of one leg, but never losing his spirits.     A  May  morning.  Avith  chattering squirrels and   birds  swelling  their breasts with the impulses of praise,  wits no brighter, no blither  than  he.    Jt:  the   winter,  close-housed,   he   cheerfully  waited   i'or  spring, and   when   the   first  warm  day came he had his bed   drawn  near   the  window,  and,  lying  there,   he  would look  down  into  the orchard  iind  revel in the beauties that  nature spread  spread out for him.    We were youngsters  some of us still riding stick  horses.    How  he rejoiced  in our capering.-.!    We grew  older and he grew older  with  us, but  he  still lay in bed.    We used to take our guns  with us when Ave visited   him, and   lying  propped up at the window he would shoot  at something down in the orchard.   Once  he killed a hawk, and it did him so much  good that we thought he Avould get well,  but he didn't.    I moved to a distant part  of the country, and   for years  I   thought  about that pale, crippled boy, propped up  .at the window.    I   wrote to him, but be  couldn't write, and  1 don't  believe that  any  of   his  people could,  either.   -Many  years passed, and he gradually faded from  my memory.  Several weeks ago 1 went down to Haek-  enville, Tennessee. J had lived near there  when a boy. I was standing in the familiar street. Not a fire had caused the  putting up of a new building���moss-covered and venerable, it gave back to me my  boyish fancy. J spoke to an old man.  "Whatever became of Dee Anderson?" I  asked.  "Why, don't you know?    Ha, I thought  everybody knew."  "Dead, I suppose."  "What! well J reckon not. He's about  the liveliest man we've got. He's our  town marshal."  "Oh, he got well, eh?"  "Well, mebby not from your standpoint.    Yonder he comes."  And there he did come, little, humped  over, pale, walking on a stirrup and a  crutch. There was a town marshal,  surely, and in a place too, where brutish  men wei e wont to drink and raise a i*oav.  How gladly he greeted me, how he stood  upon his stirrup, reached up and grasped  my hand. I gave him a thoughtless grip  aiid he writhed. And yet he was a town  marshal. "Come over and let's set down  and talk over old times,".said he. "Recollect the time I killed, the hawk? I gad, I  knew right then that there was ji career  mapped out for me; had been sorter low  spirited that day, but when 1 drawed a  bead on that 'old* rascal and tumbled hini  out of the tree, I know that if ever I got  out of that bed I would amount to something; didn't think, though, that I'd ever  get to be marshal of this town. Do you  recollect Annie Balch?"  "Oh, that fat girl?"  ''Yes, Unit's the one. I gad,'I married  her; yes I did. And do you know what's  a fact? Why, she wa.s overlooked here  for years- her strong points didn't seem  to inako any impression on the neighborhood, that is.

Think of that, will you as  fat an.I promisiif a girl as she was waitiif  for it skeleton to get up. Oh, some folks  growl, but let me toll you that this is a  grand world: and I attribute my success  to my patience. Don't walk fast: I can't  keep up with you."  We went to the livery stable, sat down  and were talking when some one came tip  and said: "Disc, .Mm Blake is in town and  i.s raising trouble un on the square."  "That's so? Well, I must go down and  see about him.    Come with me."  I went along with him, and in his haste  to reach the scene of disturbance, he  stumbled and fell. I helped him up iiml  brushed the dust oil' hi.s coat. As we approached we situ* a crowd on the square,  and <*i man running past told us that Blake  hiid stabbed the sheriff.  "Dee." said I. "you'd better not go.  Here's a wagon. Let me put you in if and  send you out of town."  He'looked at me reproachfully and said:  "I am the marshal of this place and^ the  marshal is expected to do his duty. Conie  on."  I didn't want to bostabbed: I didn't want  to meet .Jim Blake, aud I hung back. Dee  hobbled on as fast as he could, and the  crowd parted to lei. him pass.

Now, I am the  marshal of this town, and they expect me  to do my duty and if I don't the city council  will (ire me and mine.    Don't you see how  I'ni fixed?    Of course you do, because you  are ii sensible man, and  it kind man.  although you do stab folks once  in awhiie.  Jim, I'm going to ask you a   favor, just to  help me along, you know.    You   take my  arm. now, and help tne down   to  the jail  ��is fast a.s   you  can.   Don't you see.   my  liviif depends on you   right  now?    You  know that   I  couldn't  hurt  you���why  I  could hardly cock a pistol, much less stab  a man.   Take my arm, Jim." i  Ho hold out his arm, shrunken, withered. |  "Take  my arm,  Jim."    And   hang  me  if  tho fellow didn't take his arm  and   walk  off toward the jail with hini.  "Don't walk to fast, Jim."  "Excuse me.    I'm used to walkin' purty  peart," Jim replied, lessening his gait.  I followed and caught up with thein  .just as they arrived tit the jail; and 1  stood peeping in. "1 can't, get this door  unlocked," said the marshal. "Will you  please unlock it, Jim?"  Jim unlocked the door and stepped inside the cell; and then the marshal began  again to fumble".with the door. "1 can't  lock it," said he. ���  "Let me lock it," I called.  Blake wheeled about,-  hi.s eyes glaring  with rage.    "Tetch   that  door,"  he said,  "and I'll kill you."  I didn't touch it. "Can't you git it  locked?" Jim asked. "Here let me reach  around and lock it for you." And he did.  When 1 went back up town an old man  said tome:' "We haven't had very much  trouble since Dee's been .marshal, but before that we had a good deal. Four marshals have been-killed here in the last six  years, but Dee sorter appeals to a feller's  pity, and that is harder to get away with  than a. knive or a pistol."  hours in the week's schooling. Parents  would be surprised if they knew what  their children read, the books they take  out of the library and the direction in  which their literary taste tend. Reading  has as much influence on men and women  <*ik anyone cause in after fife, and it is important that while young and impressionable they be taught what to read and how-  to read it.  Guessed It Aright.  An Indiana paper, commenting on the  marriage of a -Miss Wheat to a Mr. Corn, ,  which occurred at Clinton, in Vermillion  county, a few weeks ago, said, that after  the marriage ceremony the choir santr,  "What Shall the Harvest Be?"

An exchange well 'remarks that there  is one subject to which a good ileal of  time might' be profitably devoted iu our  public schools, which iu most of them i.s  entirely neglected. It i.s it discussion of  what to read. Reading like everything  else, will prove to bo far more profitable  if pursued in a isystematic and intelligent  manner. Of course, in studies of literature, the student learns something of the  masterpiece.-;, but his attention is simply  drawn to great literary ' productions.  These ho will speedily become acquainted  with and then the great mass of literature of an inferior grade stretches out before him like it boundless sea. aud lit; i.s  left to navigate it without compass or  chart.  It i.s almost as important to know how  best to employ the information you  possess its it i.s to acquire it. And it is  dangerous as well as wasteful for a youth  to have the run of a huge library withottl  some one to guide him in the selection of  books.  ���c arranged just like a  heavy and some light  docs not w.'inL to con-  philoMiphieal dUsorla-  that suhjcci,   or even  Beading should  meal, with sonic  dishes. The child  lino his reading to  lions on this or on  to history or biography. The.se subjects  should bo interspersed wilh some lighter  residing, which is just as imporLniu. lo tt  person who aims to lie cultivated and intellectual, as heavier matter. The light  reading should be'judiciously varied, so  thiil the reader will become acquainted  with the various styles of Motion: ihe  various authors, and the various subjects  around which interesting stories have  been woven.  Parents and teachers neglect. Loo much  this important subject of directing the  reading of those under their care. They  allow them to select their reading alone,  but punish t hem if the booksare immoral.  The best way to keep a boy or girl from  reading bad and t rashy books is to keep  them well supplied with good literature  so thattliey will have no time to wander  off into forbidden and dangerous pat lis.  A taste for reading can be ciilt.ivaled just  as well us a boy's muscle can bo developed  by athletic exercises; and a taste for  sound reading can be a.s easily cultivated  as a taste for trash.  If once li week in all our schools au hour  wa.s spent in asking the children wind  I bey are reading out of school: to suggest  Llie'best book's I'or each   pupil   (,o   peruse,  it-  would   be   one  of   the   most    profitable  Situate on Vernon  Street, Neap Josephine.

One of Mr. Buchanan's Advocates.  The Vancouver World never takes  middle ground when discussing men���  it never discusses measures. Men who  support the Davie government tire either  gallant colonels, silver-tongued orators,  or gentlemen of dignity and ability. Men  who oppose the governmant are always  members of gangs who fairly stink in tiie  nostrils of the electorate. The following  is an editorial that appeared in The  World of the Ith instant. If Mr. Buchanan hopes to poll even a respectable  vote,, he should request Mr. Davie to  muzzle The World.    11 says:  '"The right man has been selected in tho  south riding of Kootenay. iu the person  of G.
