MINING AROUND AINSWORTH  Capital for Woodbury Creek.  KA,sr.o, April 12.���[Special to The  Tribune].���-It would seem as if the  day of the calami by howler at Kaslo  has gone b}r. Ifc is said that an  American company, which has $;>,-  000,000 behind ib, will open np thirty or more claims on Woodbury  creek, and will put in a short electric, railway to bring bhe ore down  to Kootenay Lake.  Ainsworth is picking up now  thab the compressed air company  is about to supply air to the Tariff,.  No. .1 ' and ' other mines. There is  much concentrator talk. After being closed down for eight years the  United mine at Ainsworth is to be  started up again. Frank Heap has  bonded it. The mine belongs to the  old Revelstoke smelter company. -  This" Tr in link circulates extensively. An absentee Kaslo landlord saw in The Trihune a reference to the proposed Kaslo smelter,  and wrote to S. S. Counanton, remarking on the item and offering a  free site.  Kaslo Catholics want to have a  resident priest. At a meeting held  in the office of the Lodestar Mining  Company, it was decided to petition  the bishop to appoint one. Father  Cote pays this town periodical  visits.  D. C. MacGregor, the only one of  the delegates to the Vancouver Liberal convention who has yet returned, says G. O. Buchanan is trying to  ��� ���������,��� get thejnflueuce of mine managers  and Conservatives; that George  ���'- Kane is seeking the Joe Martin  nomination ; while "Lardo Jack" is  holding the balance of power. Mr.  MacGregor declares that while he is  still a strong anti-Martin man, lie  voted against the admission of Lhe  Cassiar delegates, save two, and ho  would do the same thing again.  llp��claims that tho others did not  properly represent Caspar.  "Bob" Green does not look as if  tiie comiug political conteSD was  worrying him at all.  Another Cranbrook Disappearance.  Ora>tukook> April H. [Special  toThoTiibime.]��� W. 0. McClellan,  a lie contractor having his camp  ab Jalftey, live miles east of the  Kootenay rher, disappeared about  ten days ago, aud no brace has since  been found of him,1 although diligent search has been made. Ab the  time of his disappearance he had  ��� boQii drinking, and had fasted a  day or two. lie was observed to  strike out into bhe brush, and that  was the last seen of him. Ib is  feared that he perished some where  in the timber from exhaustion.  A new sawmill -will bu installed  in Cranbrook next week. T. W.  >Leask has an outfit cn route to this  town with a capacity of 20,000 feet  per day, including lath and shingle  machinery. The mill will be operated in conjunction with his planing mill and sash and door factory,  which is now one of Cranbrook's  ���prosperous institutions.  A powder magazine at tho Lake  Shore mine, Moyie, exploded Tuesday night from .some unknown  eaufo. Aside from the loss of the  powder and the building, no damage was done.  The official programme of the opening will be issued today. The ceremony will be very simple. About  12,000 people will be admitted, including the whole parliament, all  tho ministers and ambassadors, including Dr. Leyds and the papal  nuncio.  FIRING IN VARIOUS PLAGES  Pretoria Versions.  Pretoria, April 11.���A heavy  cannonade was heard this morning  in- the direction of Bultfontein,  situated-midway between Winburg  and Boshof, in the Orange Free  State, and north of Brandfort.  Advices from��� Wepener, where a  British force is surrounded, say the  battle continues. About 1500 British troops are said to'be there'.'  Advices, from the Boer headquarters in Natal say that after a heavy  bombardment the British are retiring in the direction of Ladysmith.  The Boer announcement of the  reoccupation of Smith field by the  burghers, just received, is no hews,  as the small British force at that  point withdrew after the Reddersburg affair. It now appears that  general Brabant is at Aliwal North,  and that only a portion of his column is at Wepener.  Post  Office Bobbed.  Frederick, Maryland, April 12.  --Three masked robbers blew open  the safe in the post office at Mount  Airy with dynamite last night, and  secured $950 in staups and $350 iii  cash. The building was wrecked  by the explosion.* Charles Moser, a  telegraph operator, was attracted  by the explosion. He was covered  with a pistol, taken into the building "and witnessed the robbery.  The robbers compelled him to stand  with uplifted hands until they  had made their escape.  ' Cape Town Items.  Cape Towx, April 12.���The  Strathcona contingent lost 183  horses during the voyage owing to  au outbreak of pneumonia. The  Bloemfontein correspondent of the  Cape Argus says: "Qlivier's commando is moving in the direction  of Smithfield. ' -Five different  different laageis are located be:  tween Bethany and the Kaffir  river, lying parallel to the railway  12 miles eastward."  BOERS ARE VERY RESTLESS  The Burghers' Plan.  Bloemfontein, April 11.���According to the information received  here, the Boer activity eastward of  the railroad and in proximity to  the border is largely due to the  fact that presidents Kruger and  Stein have found they are unable  to keep their forces together in inactivity, the burghers declaring they  are unwilling to remain with their  commandoes unless actively employed, even if they are convinced  that the British game is a.^waiting-  game. " ���   '  It is believed that the Boer commando was originally designed to  oblige lord Roberts to weaken his  force at Bloemfontein in order- to _  protect the railroad. Then the  Boers would have attemptedto recapture the capital. The burghers  are evidently ignorant of the enormous forces lord Roberts hias at his  disposal.  Advices from. De Aar siding say  the Boers are busily entrenching  their position east of Brandfort,  running parallel with the railroad,  while still strongly holding the  Watervaal drift waterworks.  Colonials Doing Splendidly.  Am\vai, North, April 12.���Colonial troops are still holding their  ,own splendidly at Wepener. Cannonading recommenced this morning. The Boer attack yesterday  was not set ions. The British are  carefully husbanding their ammunition, and their guns arc making  excellent practice. The Boers are  short of ammunition. A patrol returning from Smithfield leports  that small groups of Boers are visible in that.neighborhood.  THE BOERS PLUCK UP HEART  Faint-hearted Sent Home.  ��� New-YorS,''April 12.���Under a  Pretoria date comes to the Herald  an interesting description of the  fighting and the state of feeling in  the Transvaal capital and conveying the hews that the federals have  taken fresh courage and have no  idea, of laying down their arms.  This dispatch is dated Monday of  this week, and reads:  "The relief of Ladysmith and  Kimberley aud general Cronje's disaster coming together, caused the  Boers to become panic-stricken and  temporarily abandon Bloemfontein.  "Had lord Roberts been able to  "folfow lip his success, the war might  have been ended now, but the British reached Bloemfontein utterly  fagged out and recuperation was  absolutely necessary. This afforded  time for the Boers to recover, and  now the military situation is not  necessarily more" unfavorable than  two months ago.  "The ' faint-hearted havo been  weeded from the reserves and the  lighting commandoes are now composed of resolute men. The decision to send the captured Boers to  St. Helena makes it certain that  the Boers will not surrender except  iu "the last extremity. The average  burgher prefers death to exile. A  military attache, who is much respected, thinks six months the lowest probable duration of the war.  The Boors will probably continue  to fight, eA'en if they lose Pretoria,  which is uulikely to occur f��r a  long time to come yet."  latest is ihtti colonel Dalgary's  force occupies ~'a . position outside  Wepener, while the Rouxville eom-  . mando occupies the town itself.  The pressure there should be partially relieved within the next  twenty-four , hours. Lieutenant  Nix, the Dutch military critic who  was wounded at Koornspruit, died  today during an operation."  AT THE SHOW LAST NICHT  A Good-'Performance.  Local talent appeared in a new  Hue at the operas; house last night  when E. P. Whalley put oh his  vaudeville ente^t-Sintnent in aid., of'  the Canadian Patriotic Fund, and  right well did iheyVac-quit themselves. Manager Whalley was disappointed last night by the quartette, two of -Avliose members were  unwell, . and ibyi>jF. Worthiugton,  who put in neither an appearance  nor an excuse. (^Notwithstanding  these drawbacks 'the entertainment  was an'exceedingly enjoyable one  and passed Off very smoothly.  The feature of i; the first part of  the program- waisy of   course, the  comedietta, "My; IJncle's -,Will," in  which" Mrs. Whailey 'proved herself  a clever actress' as  the7charming  Florence   Marigold if;R- VM-"--' Macdonald and C^;Bi.^rinter were good  as Charles Cashmorfeiand-Mr. Barker  respectively,   the' Apiece /being deservedly well received;;-v'Just before  the comedietta: J.3G.  Devlin 'sang  "The Agricultural Irish Girl," givT  ing "The Sporting Man" in response  to a well earned recall. ��� The "Gunner"    is   a   favorite: with Nelson  audiences.   R. Slugg and E. McGinn  also gave a neat span ing exhibition.  After the interval  C. B. Winter  sang  the   "Motor    Car,"   a   comic  song the encore to which was that  funny parody, "A Long Time Ago."  Then came  W. H.  Dowsing  with  magic and   mystery,  and   an extremely clever magician he is.' Any  professionals who   come here aud  hope to surpass .him must look to  their laurels.     The ^audience, was  delighted with his'eltArer tricks.   E.  ROBERTS IS SAWING WOOD  Situation Reviewed.  London, April 13.���4:05 a.m.���In  a roundabout way London hears  that lord Roberts, when wiring the  prince of Wales at Copenhagen  congratulations upon his escape  from assassination, added two or  three hopeful sentences portending  an early advance with far reaching  combinations. Quiet assurances  are passed round among military  men that lord Roberts is employing  his great army effectively, and that  the more adventurous of the Boer  commandoes are likely to be enmeshed. .���������������������.  Scraps of news; here and there,  have reached England tonight over  comparatively idle cables, but they,  do not illuminate the situation.  The colonials at Wepener still hold  off the Boers. Lord^ Methuen has  worked eastward until he is within  SO miles of Kroonstadt. The Boers  have gone around Ladysmith and.  have appeared at Dewdrop and  other places on general Buller's  flank and rear. The officers of  Buller's Irregular Horse estimate  the Boers in Natal at 18,000, Jbut  these figures are probably in excess  of tiie truth, 10,000 being regarded  here as the outside number. ���:��� After  general.'-Hart's, brigade leayes him,  general Buller will have: close upon  35,000 men. It is generally as:  -sumed'that this brigade is going to  join lord Roberts, but its destination is unknown.  The Boer note to Portugalregard-  ing the use by the. British of the.  Biera route for the transportation  of troops to Rhodesia may, if the  Boers act against Portugal, lead  Great Britain to land troops at  Lorenzo Marquez. This possibility  has been seriously discussed, and is  referred to at length iu the morning  papers today.  The work of the" Boer peace  commissioners has begun. Mr. Fischer has as-ked Italy to iuterveno,  and the Italian minister of foreign,  affairs has replied that while he'  would receive tbe .commissioners,  the'besfc lie could  do would  be. to  Kecruits for Strathcona's Horse.

The successful performance last  night again > suggested the offceu  asked question : "Why is thoro no  Nelson Dramatic Club?" With the  local talent Nelson can boast of,  there is no reason why wo should  be entirely dependent on the tender  mercies of travelling shows, which  take the money they make out of  the town with them, are only too  frequently nob worth going to  see.  The returns were not accurately  known la&;fc night, but ib i.s understood that the sum netted the  Canadian Patiiotic Fund was in the  neighborhood of $200.

There must be no compromise or patchwork in the settlement and uo opportunity for misunderstanding. The British will  no longer toleiate a dissimilar and  ^antagonistic political system in a  country which nature and history  have declared to be one."  * Jn these absolute utterances of  Mr. Milner, he speaks for- the Imperial government.

Is ifc any wonder that  there are labor  organizations  and  ' strikes?          Thk shareholders of the Hal I  Mines, Limited, had a general meeting yesterday in London. It was  expected that a reorganization  scheme would be carried through,  by which additional capital would  be secured by tbe payment by  shareholders of one dollar a share  for shares iu a new compauy, the  .shares in the old company being at  the same time surrendered and cancelled. This practically means an  assessment on tho shareholders of  one dollar a share. A now board of  directors will direct the affairs of  the new company. It is not unlikely that the mine and smelter  will be stalled up within sixty days  under entirely new management/  Tiik    party-line    politicians    at-  Kelson are at s^ea.    They have three  candidates,   namely   John    Elliot,  banister,   J.  Roderick  Robertson,  mine manager, and G. Fiank Beer,  financial   agent.     The   party-line  men are afraid that if they make a  fight as parties,  the   Independents  will defeat them, so they az-o trying  to form a combine and endorse one  of,the other of the three above  mentioned.   Mr. Beer is likely to  be the one selected, as he is the  smoothest worker of the three and  is all right on the cheap-Iabor-and-  Iong-hours issue.  "A Blasted Lyre."

Diir- J  ing- all the time preceding the  mayoralty election this most  egregiously . idiotic production  teemed with abuse a of John  Houston, Jiis ideas, polities and  private affairs, and before5 and  after, it was, and is, seething witli  jealously ,and spite, which lias  evidently culminated in a most  -libelous and entirely scandalous  attack on the said John Houston,  for which, if I,was John Houston, I  should seek and get redress. The  Miner apparently is not without  funds, as I perceive it offers Cash  for Clean Rags, which it would be  well to apply to a cleansing process  in the Miner's Augean stables.  M. Lloyd,  -   Xelson,-April 12th.-- ���  Let It Alone.,  New Denver Ledge.  AYc championed the cause of the  miner iu  the recent fight for an  eight hour day.    We truly believe  that eight hours i.s long enough, if  not too long, to work underground.  We believe that an eight-hour shiffc  will   tend  to   make miners  better  mentally and physically.    We took  the side of the minors on this question  without the promise of a reward  of any   kind,  monetary   or  otherwise.    Kor this we have been  condemned by many, and iu one or  two cases boycotted,    AVe do not  -mind a boycott, as it works both  ways.     Any individual  who does  not like our style can   spend  his  money with the journalistic hcabb  and curs who are always eager to  scrunch anything that is thrown to  them.   Any individual-who is in  sympathy with our way of doing  things  should  not   be  bashful   in  showing  his appreciation.    We do  not see any necessity of  further  agitation over tho  eight hour law.  After months of talk the  mines of  Jvootenay are again  in operation,  and   if   jackleg   politicians and  a  press that advocates white shivery  will  keep their months  and  pens  quiet   there   will    be   no   further  trouble.      Pretoria Bed Cross.  Nkw York, April 12.���John V.  Pniyu, chairman of the American  committee to aid the Red Cross  work within the Boers lines, has received a letter from Howard C.  Hillegas, a  member of this coin-  Henry Fielding was once asked  by lord Denbigh why he wrote his  name "Fielding" instead of "Feil-  ding," as his lordship's family used.  "I can not tell, my lord," replied  the novelist, "except it be that my  branch of the family were the Iirst  that knew how to spell."  Major Hayford Thorold, second  in command of the First Battalion,  duke of Welling ton's regiment, tells  a story of his experiences in Mata-  belaud in 1S9(>, when sent to restore  order in a little township called  Gwelo. On arrival there he found  that the acting commandant (an  ex- storekeeper) in a state bordering on delirium tremens; so that lie  had him locked up. The commandant, however, managed to break  out and make his way to the telegraph office, whence he dispatched  the following wire: "Chamberlain,  London: Man here named Thorold  questions my sobriety. Who is  Thorold? Wire at once to avert  bloodshed."  After the decease of tho late P.  T. Barnum, the "Greatest Show of  Earth" continued for a while to use  the magic of liis name. Once when  nearing Hartford it sent free tickets  to clergymen there. Among the  letters containing tickets was one  addressed to the Rev. Dr. Joel  Hawes, who had died some years  before. The letter was sent to Dr.  George L. Walker, then the active  pastor of the First Church. On  reading"ft, Dr. Walker is reported  to have said : "A letter from P. T.  Barnum to Dr. Hawes ! Mr. Barnum  is dead and Dr. Hawes is dead. It  is evident that they have not met,  yonder."  General sir Herbert Chermside,  who is now in South Africa, was  formerly a consul in Asia Minor.  Once, in a weak moment, he sent a  couple of beautiful Angora cats as a  present to a lady in Constantinople.  The lady was so pleased that she  asked him to send some more. Sir  Herbert gave his native servant  some money and told him to go and  buy two or three.   Then came a de-  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

This went on for two or  three months, and the native servant .waxed exceeding fat.

The following from tlio do Covor-  ly Papero by Joseph Addison has a  strong bearing on the political question in this province and is worth  careful perusal.  "There cannot   a   greater judgment befall a country than such a  dreadful spirit of division as rend a  government into two distinct peoples,    and    makes   them    greater  .strangers and more adverse to one  another, than if they were actually  two different nations.    The effects  of such a division are pernicious to  the  last degree, not only with regard   to  those   advantages  whic'a  they give the common enemy, but  to those private evils which thoy  produce in the heart of almost every  particular  person.    This   influence  is very fatal both in men's morals  and their understandings; it sinks  the virtue of a nation, and not only  so, but destroys even common sense.  "A furious party spirit, when it  rages  in  ils   full  violence,   exerts  itself in civil wai and bloodshed;  and  when it is under its greatest  lestraints  naturally breaks out in  falsehood, detraction, calumny, and  a partial administration of justice.  In  a word, it fills  a  nation  with  spleen aud rancor, and extinguishes  all the seeds of good-nature, compassion and humanity.  "Plutarch says, very finely, 'that  a man should not allow himself to  hate even his enemies, "because,'  says he, 'if you indulge this passion  in some occasions, it will riso of  itself in others; if you hate your  empirics, you Avill contract such a  vicious habit of mind, as by degrees  will break out upou those who are  your fiieiids or those who are indifferent to you.' I might here observe how admirably this precept  of morality (which derives the  'malignity of hatred from the passion itself, ancl not from its object)  answers to that great rule which  was dictated tn the world about an  hundred years before this philosopher wrote ; but instead of that, I  shall only take notice,'with"a real  grief of heart, that the minds of  many good men' among us appear  soured with party-principles, and  alienated from one another in such  ti manner as seems to me altogether  inconsistent with the dictates either  of leasbn or religion. Zeal for a  public cause is apt to breed passions  in the hearts of virtuous persons, to  which the regard of their own  private interest would never have  betrayed them.  "If this party spirit has so ill an  effect on our morals, it has likewise  a very great one upon our judgments. We often hear a poor insipid paper or pamphlet cried up,   and-somotimes-a -noble - piece depreciated, by those who are of a  different principle from tho author.  One who is actuated by this spirit  is almost under an incapacity of  discerning either real blemishes or  beauties. A man of merit in a different' principle is like an object  .seen in two different mediums, tluit  appears crooked or broken, however  straight and entire it may be iu  itself. For this reason there is  scarce a per.son of any figure in  England, who doci- not go by two  contrary ehamctcis, as opposite to  one another as light and darkness.  Knowledge and learning suffer in a  particular manner from this strange  prejudice, whichat present prevails  amongst all ranks and degrees in'  the British nation. As men formerly became eminent in learned  societies by their ��>d>rts and acquisitions, they now distinguish themselves by the warmth .tud violence  with which tliey espouse their ro-  fcpeefcive parties. Books are valued  upou the like considerations. An  abusive, scurrilous style passes for  satire, and a dull'scheme of party  notions is called fine writing.  "There is one piece of sophistry  practiced, by both sides, and that is  the taking auy scandalous story,  that has been ever whispered or iu-  vonted of a private man, for a  known undoubted truth, and raising suitable speculation upou it.  Calumnies that have never been  proved, or have been often refuted,  aro the ordinary postulations of  these infamous scribblers, upon  which they proceed as upon first  principles granted by all men,  though in their hearts they know  they'.are   false,   or   at   best very  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaffuay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  doubtful. When they have laid  these foundations of scurrility, it is  no wonder that their superstructure is in every way answerable' to  them. If this shameless practice of  the present age endures much  longer, praise nnd reproach will  cease to be motives of action in  good men.  "There are certain periods of time  iu  all governments   when this  inhuman  spirit  prevails.    Italy was  long: torn iu pieces by the Guelphs  and  Ghibelline?,    and   France   by  those who were for and agaiust the  league ; but it is very unhappy for  a man to be born in such a stormy  and tempestuous season.    It is the  restless ambition of artful men that  thus breaks a people into factions,  and    draws   several   well-meaning  persons   to   their    interest   by   a  specious concern for their country,  flow many honest minds are filled  with  uncharitable and   barbarous  notions, out  of their zeal  for the  public good.    What cruelties and  outrages  would  thoy not  commit  against men of an adverse  party  whom they would honor and esteem  if, instead of considering them as  they are  represented,  they   knew  them as they are?   Thus are persons of the greatest probity seduced  into shameful errors and prejudices,  and made bad men  even by that  noblest  of principles,  the love of  their country.    I cannot here forebear mentioning the famous Spanish proverb, "If there were neither  fools nor knaves' in the world, all  people would be of one mind."  "For my own part I could heartily wish that all honest men would  enter into au association, for the  support of one another against the  endeavors of those whom they  ought to look upou as their common  enemies, whatsoever side they may  belong to. Were there such an  honest body of neutral forces we  should never see the worst of men  in great figures of life, because they  are useful to a party ; nor the best  umegarded, because they are above  practicing those methods which  would be grateful to their faction.  We should then single' every criminal out of tho herd, and hunt him  down, however formidable aud  overgrown lie might appear; on the  contrary we should shelter distressed innocence, and defend virtue,  however beset with contempt or  ridicule, envy or defamation. In  short, we should not any longer regard (our fellow-subjects as Whigs  or Tories, but should make the man  of merit our friend, and the villain  our enemy."   A Man of the Hour.  Julian Ralph, a special correspondent of the London Daily Mail, pays  the following tribute to an American who rendered stalwart aid to  the defence of-Kimberley:   "George  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD   OFFICE, TOltONTO.

LAY, Manager.  Labram, chief eugineer of tho De  Beers,Company, was killed in warfare .during the siege, and his widow  and very promising little son will  be generously cared for by the De  Beers; but it is said that had he  lived the government could hardly  have doue him any honor commensurate with his deserts.   He was  the inventive genius of the place  and time.    To him nothing seemed  impossible.   Ho it was who made  the famous Kimberly big gun, and  to make it he had to devise and  make the tools to do the work with.  Before that he manufactured shells  for the cannon of the Regulars.    Pie  built a cold storage apparatus for  preserving the  meat  used iu the  town, and to do this was obliged to  construct the ice machines���doing  it   all in   nine days.    He was an  American.   So marked was his ability and so colossal were his services  that the Regulars buried him���civilian as he was���with full military  honors."      These    last   he   surely  merited to the full, for he died in  action.  WAR   STORIES.

He writes: "Tne commanders of brigades are greatly  against our battery firing with  them, as we are the only section  that fire black powder, ar.d tho  moment we fire the Boers know our  positions exactly. The general idea  is that we shan't go into action  again." This is hard luck on "the  pick of the army," as Rudyard Kipling called the mountain battery  men.  A cavalry sergeant with lord  Dundonald's force writes : "The  other day the Boers surprised a  troop of ours, and nearly settled  them���one killed, two officers aud  12 men wounded or prisoners. To  our surprise we found that the  Boers treated our wounded with  the great kindness. They were  forced by some of ours coming up  to slide off, but before going pulled,  our wounded into the shade, put  rugs over them, and filled their J  water bottles with water. Almost  more than one could expect from an  enemy, isn't it ?"  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside .Finish  local and coast.  Flooring  local and coast.

One   of ' Thornycroft's   Mouuted  Infantry,  Mr.  Herbert  Unwiu,  of  SheflicM, in a letter  to his father,  tells  of the  awful  time  On Spion  Kop.    Ho says:    "I lay iu one position nearly all  day,  cramped and  parched- with  thirst,  the trenches  piled  with   dead  and  dying  men.  One poor fellow in our trench had  his  arm   blown   off  close   to the  shoulder.   He picked it up with the  other hand, saying, "My arm, my  arm.    Oh, God, where's my arm!"  Quite mad Avith pain, he jumped  out     of     the    trench,     and   was  shot again, and saved further pain.  Captain Petre, of my company, was  shot outside the  trench  behind  a  big rock.    He kept crying  out  for  water, but no one could get to him.  In  his  pain  he rolled  into  sight,  when ho was killed.  Next morning,  when his  body was  recovered, he  had five bullets iu him."  Quartermaster-sergeant C. Johnson of the Royal Engineers, Alder-  shot, wiifces to sergeant-major Hill  of the Northamptonshire regiment,  at Northampton : "Privato P. Murphy, of the 58th Northamptonshire  regiment, is a present inmate of the  Farnham Union Infirmary, where  he lias beeu for the past seven or  eight weeks, suffering from a wound  receiving at Majuba Hill in 1S81.  He was shot high up in the < chest  near the neck, and  the bullet re-  Ward Bros.  mained in him and worked down  tli rough his body to just below the  joint of the thigh, from whence the  doctor has just taken it. The man  pleaded to the doctor to let the  bullet stop in his body until Majuba  day, but that was not allowed. -It  was taken out on February 15th. I  saw the bullet myself���it is very  precious to him."  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.
