 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOTST:  SATURDAY MOKNI^G NOVEMBER 3  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS     :\  MILLING INDUSTBIES  A  Trial  Shipment of  Creeks to  Ore From Springer  Be Sent to Trail.  and Lemon  GENERAL NEWS OF INTEREST FROM NEIGHBORING CAMPS  -���TT77  Si'.''  f, \  N. F. McNaught, one of the best  known      mining      operators      on  ���Springer nnd Lemon creeks, was  in  the city today en  route to Trail,  lie is taking a trial shipment of ore  from   the   Hampdon   group to be  smelted and expects the test to be  .  satisfactory.    The Hampdon group  is above and adjoining tlie Arlington  property, and was  purchased  by Mr. McNaught last spring from  Popin   and   McFarlane,   the  prospectors who staked the Bondholder  group, recently bonded to Spokane  and   Slocan    City    parties.     The  group includes the Ethel K, Plunger, Camp Fire, Silver Bow, Hampdon and Hampdon fraction claims.  It was staked in 1895," but no  work  was done outside of assessments until   theTproperty   changed-hands.  Since  then  sufficient development  has   been   carried out to indicate  that the Hampdon is in a fair way  to become one of the richest properties in the Slocan country.    The  formation is similar to that on the  Arlington and the lead parallels the  Arlington vein.     The  ledge is 40  feet wide and has been stripped for  '   250 feet, ore  being  found  for  the  full distance.   For the full' width  ���   the lead averages fifty ounces.   The  paystreak is twelve inches wide and  averages  4.00. ounces.      Specimens  ,   can be obtained almost anywhere in  -' the   paystreak     which    will    run  "12,000 ounces.    Mr.  McNaught has  a silver button made, from an' ounce  of selected. oro and the, button is  al mostas" heavy afe'.'the: sample was  'biiffcre it went into the crucible.   *  -An 80-foofc tunnel-was -driven -on  the lead this summer and the ore  -taken out in drifting paid $40 a foot  over and above -the cost of the  work. During the summer GO sacks  -of clean ore was shipped to Trail  and realized 790 ounces to the ton.  The shipments now going through-  consists of 144"sacks, half from-the  paystreak and the balance from the  ledge matter. Good buildings have  been erected on the group and  equipped with water pipes. Next  spring a road will be constructed  from the terminus of the Arlington  wagon road aud the Hampdon will  bo worked extensively.  Mr. McNaught with his brother  .lames, for many years chief attorney for the Northern Pacific railroad and now president of the new  road being built out of Quebec, is a  half owner of the Alpha mine near  , Silverton. They purchased the  j>ropefty-~-oUtrighT"for��� $70;000���in"  '.1893 and sold a half interest later  V to senator Hansbrough of North  Dakota and Alex MacKenzie of  Washington, D. C. The Alpha was  the best proposition and had the  biggest lead showing in the Silver-  ton camp at the time. In the lirst  four months after the MeNaughts  took hold of it 1200 tons were  shipped which ran 112 ounces of  silver and 02 per cent lead. The  initial shipment of 800 tons was the  first ore ever carried on theNakusp  branch of the C. P. R. then  operated by the construction department. In the winter of '94-'95  the owners disagreed as to the  proper method of working the  Alpha and the property was shut  down suddenly. Tram cars were  lefb where they stood, the cables on  the tramway, were left stretched  and 400 tons of shipping ore lay on  the dump ready to be forwarded to  the smelter^ Since then not a drill  has been driven on the property.  The McNaught brothers control a  quarter interest in the Kilo group  on Lemon creek above the Chapleau  mine. The balance of the Kilo  group, which aggregates 28 claims  and extending for about four miles  on the creek, is owned by the Warner Miller Syndicate of New York.  The company has spent fully $150,-  000 on the property and is about to  enter the producing stage. Last  spring twenty tons of ore in three  ton lots from seven points on the  group, was shipped to Wood & Co.,  of Denver, Colorado, to be treated  with a view to ascertaining the  most desirable method of reduction.  The shipment was sidetracked for  sixty-five days, and the reault of  the test has   only   recently   been  received. The twenty tons averages  $43     principally    iu    gold     -with  some silver.     The nature of  the  process recommended by Wood &  Conjpauy is not divulged, but Mr.  McNaught   states   that   the   Kilo  company can handle $5 or $0 ore  profitably.    .   The    company   will  erect a mill next spring.   To handle  the property as extensively as  is  contemplated will eventually necessitate half-a-dozen mills at various"  points on the group, and  this is  part of the programme.   The Kilo  people   are   affiliating    with    the  Chapleau company in the construction of   the Lemon creek   wagon  road, and the mile and a half of  grade   necessary to complete   the  road between the Kilo and Chapleau will be started  at an early  date.     There   are   ten or   twelve  buildings on the Kilo group, with  comfortable    accommodation ���   for  crews. _   Since   commencing   operations on  Lemon creek five years  ago the Kilo company has pursued  the policy of developing extensively  on various claims, so that they now  have mines at several points which  only require  mills to be on a producing basis.  Referring to mining matters Mr.  McNaught says: "I believe-this  country to be the best of them all  from a mining standpoint. I have  been in Washington and Colorado  and there are no, brighter opportunities there than in British- Columbia. I am satisfied there are scores  of properties all overthe country in  -mining sections which are quite as  good.or. better than; any of those  now operating and look to see the  JCootenays go ahead rapidly from-  this on."   -      ���   ���  Litigation Over the.Blue Jay.  .The'suit of Lawr vs. Parker was  disposed of at the court house yesterday, judgment being given in  favor of plaintiff. The action "was  of some interest, involving as-it did  a Morning mountain - mineral claim  which will probably turn out to be  a valuable property,.and arose in  the following manner: In-August,  1S98, William Lawr, the plaintiff,  staked the Rebecca claim on Morning mountain, and in the following  year on the .T. A. fraction, adjoining the Ida claim, which he also  claimed, believing at the time that  the work was done on the Rebecca.  It was brought out in*the evidence  that the assessment .was done on  the Ida and that plaintiff filed no  notice of his intention to do the  Stansted, Quebec, took an option  on the Mastadon claim f on Lost  creek owned by C. H. Green. The  company paid $1000 cash, and the  agreement calls for a further payment of $5000 in six -months together with 150,000 shares in the  above company, which was formed  to take over the property. ��  MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.

Action.  work on the Ida to apply as an  assessment on the Rebecca as  recorded, and on August 30th, 1899,  made and filed an affidavit that he  had done the work on the Rebecca,  whereas it was done on the fraction adjoining the Ida. On the  affidavit being presented a certificate of work was issued which was  filed in the mining recorder's office.  On August .30th, however, a prospector named William H. Warren  found that no work had been done  on the Rebecca, nor had notice  been filed of other work to apply  on the claim, as is provided for in  the Mineral Act, and staked the  ground as the Blue Jay. He sold to  John F. Holden, formerly superintendent of the Venus mine, who  in turn sold the Blue Jay to Charles  Parker, the defendant. Plaintiff,  asked that the Rebecca claim be  declared a valid and subsisting  location as against the Blue Jay.  Mr. justice Walkem held, under  section 28 of the Mineral Act, that  after the certificate of work was  recorded the right or title of Lawr  held good and that even although  no work had been done on the  Rebecca the only means of attacking the title-was through a suit  instituted by the attorney-general  to set aside the certificate on the  ground that it had been obtained  by fraud. It is understood that the  case will be appealed. Taylor &  Hannington acted for plaintiff and  Galliher ��fc Wilson appeared for the  defence.    Lost Creek Property Bonded.

A total almost  equal to the monthly average for  the duration of the war.  Another Story.  London, November 3.���The Daily  Express publishes sensational statements that the Boer revival is more  serious than has hitherto been believed and that in consequence  lord Roberts' return is likely to be  still further postponed. It says  also that no considerable part of  the troops will return before January or February, while the regimental drafts from England" will  continue and 5000 horses will be  sent out. The paper definitely declares that the Boers are well  armed and abundantly supplied  with ammunition and that the campaign is likely to last another six  months. ��� ,- " ���  Street Railway Earnings.  Montreal, Quebec, November 2.  ���The city of Montreal's percentage  of the street railway company's  earnings this year amounts to  $77,889. The company pays four  per cent on gross earnings up to a  million dollars, six per cent on  earnings up to a million and a half,  and eight per cent above that.  A point of very great interest to  the miners and prospectors of the  Slocan arid other sections has arisen  in the course of the trial of Manley  vs. Collom;' .low being taken at the  assize   court.   ���The  point at issue  affects   the validity   of scores of  miner's licenses and the course of  events will be closely watched until  the matter is settled.   To explain  the point i*i question necessitates a  brief resume of the facts leading to  the suit, which is as follows:   The  plaintiff seeks to adverse defendant  Collom's application for a certificate  of ia-nprovenients on the Arlington  Fractional No. 1, situated between  the Arlington and Burlington, mineral'claini3.   The ground in issue  was staked iu 1897 by C. A. Haller,  then-foreman on the Arlington property. Haller filed "an abandonment  of the fra-'jtion, and the ground was  re-staked by Jack Halpin as the  Native* SilverJ.'Vaction.    Collom alleged a. conspiracy oh the part of  Haller,' and during the summer located the ground as the Arlington  Fraction ;No. 1, had surveys made  and applied for the certificate of  improvements which plaintiff is ad-  versing.   .   -  During-the hearing at yesterday's  court it' came out that the miners'  licenses taken out by Haller and  Halpin^hadjieen -signed, by others  than the-mining recorder or the  gold commissioner arid objection  was taken ;on' this head. The  statute. is -mandatory in setting  forth .that.-'miners' licenses must  ."bear tiie'signatm'e'of-a mining re-  .ebrder oi^gojc] commissioner, and  when the attention of' Mr.' justice  Walkem was directed to the point  his lordship took a serious view of  the matter. The case was adjourned  till Tuesday to have E. M. Sandi-  larid's,-* who;signed licenses for recorder-'McGinuis of New Denver,  and- McGinuis together with re-  reorder Christie of "Slocan City, who  will-give evidence as to the genuineness of the licenses produced. Even  if no more serious results should  follow, it would appear to indicate  a seemingly loose way of' doing  business in some government offices.  his head without seeing Sweet and  spat upon him. Sweet became enraged and before Elkins could rise  to explain drew a revolver and shot  him in the neck. A large number  of truck drivers and others, who  witnessed the affair, started in pursuit of Sweet who ran down the  street and turning fired a shot at  his pursuers which lucidly missed.  His flight took him to the Mercer  street police station into which he  ran for refuge. He was promptly  locked up and Elkins was taken to  the hospital.  =.��  PLACER MINING MAY BE WIVED  :**  Hydraulic  Plant   on  Forty-Nine  Creek   Likely   to r;Be���  Absorbed  By  English  Company.

As solicitor  for a community he was entitled to  the belief that he would hold his  trusts inviolate.. Breach of trust  was the worst feature of the case.  PHOENIX   CIVIC   ELECTION  G.  W.

If the train is held  back the Ottawa demonstr,ation  would be ruined by the late arrival  of the men. Consequently the  Montreal committee has arranged  that all the men, except Ottawa  men, shall be held at Levis,-and  have chartered a special train so as  to get them here in proper time.  Arrangements for the reception,  including a parade and banquet in  the drill hall, have been made. The  city is on the tiptoe of expectancy,  and there promises to be a great  time. ���-���������..���������i-  Drugs Were Explosive.  New York, November 2.���The  police department has been investigating the list of persons reported  missing in connection with the  Tarrant fire for the purpose of obtaining a correct list of the persons  supposed to have lost their lives in  the fire. The* persons reported  were investigated through, the  station nearest the addresses given  for them and in many cases were  reported as safe. Dr. Lederle,  health department analysist, who  examined the seven drugs found in  the ruins, said today that they had  contained analine oil which is only  a little less explosive than kerosine.

The new council will  consist of leading business men  with the exception of Messrs Marshall and Punch, who are miners  well thought of in tlie [community.  The council will meet for the first  time tomorrow afternoon and proceed to organization and administration of city affairs.  Grafters in Trouble.  MoNTRBAri, November 2.���Two  political clubs gave up the ghost  tonight and both parties suffered  equally. Four men are under  arrest, Arthur Corrigau, A. E. Fitzgerald, W. J. Stoyenson and R.  Robertson. They appear to have  been working a clever game. They  had two clubs organized, the principal asset of which was a subscription list. Both lists were identical  except that Laurier was substituted  for Tupper and Liberal for Conservative. On the Conservative list  $1500 had been collected while Liberals only subscribed $300. It had  not been as extensively circulated.  The funniest feature of the affair is  that the president of the Conservative Club was arrested with the  Liberal list in his pocket, while the  treasurer of the Liberal Club carried the Conservative list. Among  the subscribers were Tupper,  Laurier and several Liberal candidates in Montreal and many prominent Liberals and Conservatives.  Terry the Pug Wins.  Louisvhxe, Kentucky, November 2.���Terry McGovern, the marvel of the prize ring, defeated Joe  Bernstein of New York in the seventh round before the Nonpareil  Athletic Club here tonight.  A report is current of a deal by  which an English syndicate is to  acquire the hydraulic plant owned  by J. Fred Ritche of Rossland and  located on Forty-nine creek where  the outfit was used for several  years. The plant is in good condition and could be worked with a  small outlay for repairs. In this  event placer mining will be revived,  and there are numerous engineers  and prospectors who believe the  creek will yield handsome returns  if properly worked. The difficulty  encountered heretofore has been  the presence of big boulders in the  creek which could not be handled  with the machinery available.  Much capital has been  invested in  the proposition but in every instance the operators have apparently failed to put in the apparatus necessary to ensure satisfactory results.  The history of placer mining on  Forty-nine creek dates back a  quarter of a century or more, when  a number of French ��� Canadians  returning from the California diggings worked up the Columbia  river and washed along Forty-nine,  Bird and other creeks in the free  milling belt west of Nelson. All  these had made their clean-ups and  left the,country years before-Nelson became a settlement, and no  accurate idea of their success can  be secured. The general impression is; however, that thousands of  dollars were taken out of the district' and that" Forty-nine was,  among the best creeks ��� of the lot.  Back in 1S91 Mr. -Monahan.-- staked  half a mile of the creek from rim  rock to rim rock, as the old act  read,- aud held the ground until the  next year when he leased the  claim to captain Tatlow, Dan Mc-  Gillivray and Hugh Keefer. The  lessees placed Mr. Keefer, who is  the father of George II. Keefer and  now resides at Vancouver, i|i'tPf  charge of the proposition, and-iput^f'  in a small plant.

There is not a   Liberal   cabinet"  minister outside of New Brunswick  who seems to have the courage to  take a fighting chance for his political life in a doubtful constituency.  All the Ontario cabinet ministers  except   William   Paterson,   represented safe seats, and Mr. Paterson  never   rested   until   he got away  from    North    Grey    and  elbowed  James   Somerville    out   of   North  Brant.    Men love n fighter, and the  spectacle    of    Ontario's   ministers  clinging   to   safe seats   in Liberal  hives   is   less  inspiring   than   the  sight of Hon..A. G. Blair  ready to  battle with Hon.   George  E. Foster  and the influence of the O. P. R. in  St. John,  New   Brunswick.      TJie  Hon. A. G. Blair appears to bo what  sporting men   would  call a "game  man," and although the temporary  disappearance of Hon. G. E.

From the scare heads printed in  the Vancouver Province and in the  Evening Miner of Nelson, one  would imagine that the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company was battling with a horde of dishonest employees ; that trainmen and station  agents in the Kootenay and Boundary countries were banded together  to do up the company, aud that the  huge conspiracy was discovered  only through the wonderful sagacity of skillful detectives aided by  dissolute men and women in Rossland. The chances are the employees of the Canadian Pacific:  R-ii! way-Company in Kootenay and;  Boundary districts are ."just as-  honest as the comraonrun of humanity. .Journals like the Province-  and the Miner, however, care rioth-j  ing for the reputations of railway  men as a class so long as they can  spring a sensation on their readers.

The Slocan Drill says a vote for  Foley means .a vote for government  ownership of railways. The go\*>  eminent had better begin at something smaller than owning all the  railways in Canada. A commencement had better be made .at ownership of all the telegraphs.  Lrss than two years ago a numbers of Americans  who  had  prospered through making ventures  in  the   mines   of   British    Columbia  pulled up their stakes and  left- the  country.    These men had  no good  word for a country that would.pass  laws   limiting   the    working   day  underground'to eight hours.- They  wanted to mine in a country where  they   could   do   as   they   pleased.  They went over  to Sumpter,  Oregon; to the Buffalo Hnmp country,  Idaho; to old worked  out districts  in   northern   California.     In fact,  they went anywhere, as long as it  was south of the international boundary line; they could not operate  mid live contentedly north  of the  line.    In two short years, they are  all back again in British  Columbia,,  notwithstanding   that   the    eight-  hour day for miners underground is  {���till in force, and that mine owners  jxve taxed 2 per cent on the value at  Harry Cowan, union printer, aud  ex-president of the Vancouver  Trades and Labor Council is reported as follows by the Vancouver  papers: Mr. Cowan was the last  speaker and he gave':a stirring address. He made particular mention  of Mr. Puttee,- the candidate of the  Labor party in- Winnipeg. Mr;  Puttee, on almost1 every occasion  last session voted-with the government, and this being so the Liberals  were not going to oppose . him this  election. ' Mi*. Cowan said he was  for a year-and a half a partner  with Mr. Puttee,-and he- could say  Mr. Puttee was a-man-of honest, in-  "depentent ideas, who- thought a  matter out and allowed himself-'to  be controlled by no' outside influence. The support of such a  man as thiswas in itself a strong  commendation ' for the Liberal  party. Mr.- -Cowan -had- not the  slightest doubt' but that he would  see the government - returned to  power wibh a greater majority than  ever.    (Applause.)  The Miner says that sir Charles  Tupper said that sir Wilfrid Lau rier  was too British for him, because  the latter had been- advocating, a  federation under whicli the colonies  should be taxed-from Westminster.  As sir-Charles has not yet been able  to offer any explanation, the Miner's  solution of the- problem should ' be  cabled him at once. In the meantime it matters -little that sir  Wilfrid never advocated anything  of the kind.  The Miner says that the present  alleged "abominable mail service in  southern British Columbia" is caused  by the mails being overburdened-  with franked campaign matter.  This may be true, but then- it is  strange that none reaches the"* local  Liberal committee rooms.  equal and would not disdain to  associate with him, knowing that,  the integrity and blamelessness of  his record is unimpeachable.  We are delighted to meet with  fair and honorable opponents, but  in future will refuse to notice such  mean contemptible utterances.  The writer,, in reference to the  appeal recently made"' to the merchants of Nelson for- support, again  refers to the co-operative store  which has been established in Rossland, and with all the presumption  of an ignorant nobody infers the  possibility of its being extended to  Nelson. For the benefit of his"  readers only, as he would certainly  be incapable himself of .appreciating the truth, I have much  pleasure in informing them that  the co-operative store in Rossland  has not been endorsed by the labor  unions and has not received any  official sanction, but is simply a  private enterprise similar to the  Army & Navy Co-operative Society  in London and many other similar  institutions. Our dear friend may  rest assured that the working, men  and their families are perfectly  satisfied withi the just and coiir:  teous treatment they receive from  the traders of Nelson.

Tlie workinginen of Nelson  naturally feel indignant at the  sneers of the Conservative writer  which appeared in yesterday's Tm-  ni'Nic, and feel sorry that such a  gifted individual���in his own estimation���should be allowed to cast  a slur upon a man who is evidently  his superior.  Our candidate, Chris' Foley, may  not, have had the advantage of the  "Liberal education" which tho  writer refers to, but his associations  and experience have enabled him to  acquire a thorough knowledge of  the requirements of the country  and the necessities of the vast  majority of the people who are  proud of the title of "workers," and  .who intend to build up the country  in an. honest and upright manner  without descending to the political  bribery and corruption that is so  rampant.  One feels that the .writer of such  unmanly sneers could not possibly  have been the recipient of such an  education, as otherwise his. association with. gentlemen would have  prevented him from indulging in  such ill-bred, remarks.

The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining industries arc as fairly entitled to protection as the:mauufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ;. therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  and.lead products be increased, so that they shall.be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  That the output of "the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the'establishment'of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who'c��innot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British'Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled (to: therefore we advocate" that when the  redistribution of seats is mnde that this constituency shall be givenrep-  resehtation.aecording.to its population.  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part.in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada. ���  WHOLESALE TRATiE  CRATED AND MINERAL WATERS.  rpHORPK &" CO.',.

The hoad  of the service was a woman whom  lie style."1 "Madame," who, by her  (lorjnence and- fascinating charms,  drew from our officers information  which enabled the Boers to forestall us in every important move.  1 f the Boers ever write the . true  history of the war (says Mr. Hales),  they will stagger England with the  revelations they make in regard to  their secret service. Their agents  were everywhere, active, intelligent,  flitting, and well paid, and at the  head of them moved the woman of  Johannesburg, "Madame," with her  eloquent eyes, magnetic touch and  clear, level head.  When  lord  Kitchener of Khartoum* arrived in Africa, she went to  meet him, for she know that if she  could   get inside   his   secrets she  could learn all things.    She made it  her  business   to  come  casually  in  contact with the -Egyptian Sphinx.  She   ran  her eyes over   the tall,  . , gaunt figure, the rugged, ugly face.  She looked into the prominent' all-  sfeing es'es, and knew at a glance  that she was   face  to  face with a  magnetism stronger than her own,  and nothing would induce her to go  near him again.  "That's the most dangerous man in  .'Britain," she said.    "I feel as if ]  ."were in the shadow of death  when  I am near him.    He is a man for  men to conquer.     No woman  can  reach him to use  him;-he  would  read me like an  open^book  in  an  hour.^fl/jd I believe he would shoot  mo asThje would shoot a Kaffir if he  caught me red-handed."'"]  will try'  all other men, but not that living  death's head.     No wonder he  conquered in Egypt,    i think he would  conquer in Hades."  So she went back to her work  .amongst the kid-glove contingent,  like a hawk in a poultry yard, until  even our dull-witted officials became  uneasy. For it was upon the  mouths of all men that important  military secrets -were leaking -out  almost daily. So she closed up the-  "nest" in Cape Town, and went up  country for a change of air.  Wherever she went' she was welcomed by our officers, and it was a  noticeable fact that disaster to our  arms followed her friendship.  A time at last arrived when she  found it absolutely necessary to  confer with the Boer leaders. She  had our whole military system at  ���her-fiugers-ends,-the-gist-of-things-  she had sent to her friends, but full  details could only be conveyed by  word of mouth. So she determined  to make the effort,' Dyeing herself  as black as the inside of a camel  with nitrate of silver-and logwood,  she stood transfigured as a Kaffir  woman, and it was then that her  glorious figure .stood her in good  stead. Prom farm * to farm, right  through the Free State, on to Pretoria, she was passed. A^d in Pretoria she gave the Boers information worth a king's ransom.  From Pretoria she passed to  - Mafeking, and afterwards boasted  that Baden-Powell gave her with  his own hands one oi" his horse rugs.  She next appeared clothed and in  her right color at Delagoa Bay, and  a few weeks later was at Durban,  Port Elizabeth, and East J^ondon in  turni At each of these centres she  gathered statistics of value to the  Boers, aud was ever welcome to the  officers, many of whom she betrayed, to their undoing.  At Durban a German retired  officer met her. He had gleaned  much concerning her and her works,  and knew her for what she. was--  the head centre of the Boers' secret  service. He had been under British  rule for many years, and bore us  the best goodwill; on account of  favors received.1 So, calling upon a  British merchant of good repute,  he told him tho true history and  occupation Of the charming daughter of Delilah. The Briton did not  allow the corn to ripen in his path,  but went with all speed to tell the  military that which had come to  his knowledge.

When things took a decidedly  bad turn with the Boers, and  "Madame" saw that her fertile  brain could be of no further use to  the sinking cause, 'she drew her  check on a continental bank, and  sailed for Europe, and, for aught I  know, her eyes may be the first to  scan these lines in London.

'"Sleep, O gentle sleep, how have  I  frightened  thee?" asks the distracted     king    in     Shakespeare's  "Henry IV.,"  audit is  a  question  which thousands of weary mortals  both before and after that sovereign's time have been in  the  habit  of framing, though no answer  has  been  forthcoming.     That   several  ingenious   persons  have, however,  solved   the   problem   of   inducing  sleep     the     following      peculiar  methods of counteracting insomnia  will, says Tit Bits," clearly demonstrate:   TI is'imperial  majesty,  the  shah   of Persia was a martyr to  insomnia for a long time until in a  -happy moment of inspiration  otfe  of the court physicians hit upon the  extraordinary   notion   of   patting  the autocrat upon the arms and  back until sleep weighed down his  eyelids.     So   admirable   was this  specific found  to be that it was  immediately adopted by the shah,  and   it   is   stated that   the   suite  which accompanied him to Europe  contained,  among other   functionaries,   two   "patters,"   whose   sole  occupation took the form of helping to send their master-into tho  realms of the' drowsy Morpheus.  At the Paris -exhibition there is  shown the model of a cave once occupied by a famous Greek brigand,  who was in the habit of being sent  tosleep by the dropping of pieces  of gold from the roof of the cave on  a carpet beneath. The gold thus  dropped represented some of the  booty that, he had acquired from  passing travellers, and so dear had  the sound of coin become to him  that nothing" but its clink upon  the ground would soothe his eyelids  to sleep. Of all queer methods of  inducing drowsiness, the foregoing  -would-certainly���seem���to���be-the-  queerest.  A gentleman who resided for  many years in the town of Worcester was ��� unable to drop off to  sleep unless half a dozen peaches  were placed under his pillow, as he  averred that the perfume of the  fruit brought with it a certain degree of drowsiness.  Somewhat similar to the device  of this worthy was the plan of a  Parisian merchant whose only remedy for sleeplessness was the insertion beneath his pillow of a  -sachet of lavender, the smell of.  which, he declared, would send him  to sleep in less than five minutes.  Very peculiar was the following:  A middle-aged engineer who lived  for-many years close to the beach  of a seaside town had grown so accustomed to the lullaby of the  waves that when business took him  to Manchester, where he was thenceforward compelled to live, he found  that the,absence of the sea murmurs robbed-,'him' of sleep. He  therefore fitted up in his bedchamber an apparatus which was  so constructed that the sound of  the waves as they broke upon the  shore was most cleverly imitated.  Aided by this fictitious appliance  the engineer was enabled to sleep  perfectly, and the apparatus continued, in constant use until the day  of his death, some years later.  In some Oriental climes the natives who find themselves unable to  sleep by natural means prevail upon their friends to adminster to  them very sound Hoggings with  bamboo canes. The pain thus sustained is supposed by the natives  in question to induce a sensation of  drowsiness, followed by sleep..  THE NOVELTIES YOU FIND AT MY  STORE CANNOT BE PROCURED  ELSEWHERE.

situation as far as the majority of
wholesalers are concerned.
