"It Avas then that my detectiA'e ability  began to develop by laying plans to catch  the thiol'. One Sunday night whilo my  folks were all at church J conceived a  plan that 1 thought might work. I  secured a pot of red paint from the barn  and fixed it over the doorway ofthe henhouse iu such a manner that it would be  .sure to fall on any one opening the door.  Then 1 had figured that it Avould only be  necessary to look for some one coA'ered  with led paint to be sure of the thief.  ".But my dream of looking for a man  covered with red paint was shortlived.  My father, returning from church, happened to go out to tlie henhouse to see if  everything was all right. He opened the  door to look inside and got tlie'contents  of the paint pot over his head. This so  startled him that he forgot about the  bear trap until he had put his foot in it  and had it closed iip on him with a snap.  That awoke the dog, and he seized the  other leg.  "His cries brought the household out  on a, run. We managed to get him loose  and over to the horse trough, Avhere Ave  washed off what Ave could of tlie red  paint, and I gaAre up my efforts to catch  that particular thief."

Rossland  and Nelson contribute   about  the same amounts to the Dominion treasury in the Avay of customs, postoffice and  inland revenue.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  CHINN"   AND   HIS   KNIFE.  Kentucky is still in a state of feverish  excitement over the Jack Chinn and senator Bronston incident, in Avhieh tlie  colonel referred to tlie state legislator as  ' "a. red headed thief." The trouble Avith  Bronston was due to the fact that lie was  the attorney for Mrs. Sally Crawford, a  . creditor of Oh inn's. Being unable to find  any property of Chinn's that was not in  ���his wife's name, Bronston intimated that  the transfer 'had been made with Mrs.  Chinn's connivance in a way that was  morally fraudulent, if not legally so.  There Avere political differences also between them, but Chinn says tliat his attacks on Bronston are due to the fact that  Bronston made insinuations against a  woman.  .Jack Chinn is one of the most unique  products of the blue grass country, AA'hich  has produced many interesting types.  Giving voice .to his sentiments, colonel  Jack says: "I am a southerner and a gentleman, by Jupiter! A man should fight  if his honor is attacked. He should fight  if a-Woman is assailed, and the bestthing  for him to fight with is a. bowie knife,  which is tho gentleman's Avcapon."  The bowie knife he always carries with  6him, and, according to Kentucky traditions, has frequently used it Avith deadly  effect. Colonel Chinn is proud of his  "trusty blade," Avhicli is variously spoken  of as a "bowie," a "spring back" and  more often than either, as" the '-Chinn  knife." * Many-and curious ; arc the tales  told iii Kentucky as to how colonel Chinn  carries his knife and "the manner in which  he opens and draws it when occasion requires. Men talk about it constantly in  the blue grass country and tell each other  thatthe colonel carries-the knife down  his back, attached by some secret contrivance to his collar. But the colonel  says these are all fairy tales. lie declares  tliat he carries it in the right rear pocket  of his trousers. When he has need to  produce it, ready for use, he dexterously  shifts it to his larger front pocket, where,  under cover, he opens it and then swiftly  brings it into service.  He has been in a score of desperate  fights in the past tAventy years, has been  hurt.seA-eral times himself, but generally  it is the other man Avho is hurt.  There isn't a more expert knife user in  all the country than is Jack Chinn. Colonel BoAvie himself, the inventor of the  knife that bears his name, Avas not more  proficient in its us^tlian this Kentuckiau.  He knows whtSre . to strike,, Avlieh to  strike, Iioav to strike aiid Avhat to do with  ^theJsniikrtfte  When colonel GoOdloe and colonel  Swope, Republican politicians, quarreled,  Chinn advised Go0dloe to settle the  trouble with the bowie. He loaned him  his faA'orite knife and gave him some lessons in using it. Goodloe killed SAvope in  the postoffice with thirteen knife cuts,  .scientifically delivered. Chinn claimed  and got most, of the credit for this,  incident.  Chinn Avas a starter on the racetrack.  He carried his flag in One hand and Jii��  bowifis in the other and Made the -jockeys  mind. At the LatOnia, Kentucky, track  o/ice he had a dispute with Jack 'Dorian,  who said ho was not a gentleuiam This  is the olie thing Chinn Will not Stand.  He whipped out his bowie and nlade a  workman-like rip for Dowhin's* stomach.  The latter had been mean enough to provide himself with a steel shirt, and Chinn  lost the point of his favorite knife.  "Only a cad Avould wear a thing like  that," said Chinn, contemptuously. Theu  he turned on his heel, and DoAvlan's social  standing was impaired by this criticism.  In Spite of his idiosyncrasies;, Chinn has  the reputation of being square and honest in all his dealings and very truthful.  Chinn's most dramatic use of his big  bowie knife Avas a, short time ago Avhen  he sharpened it up and started for Nevada to help re-elect senator SteAvart, whom  he admired. Chinn claimed that he Avas  quicker Avith the knife than any one else  engaged in the campaign. David Neagle,  the'man avIio killed ex-judge David S.  Terry, Aveiit there as the man Avho used  his revolver most rapidly, and as he AA'as  for Stewart, too, the combination looked  irresistible.  Chinn once proved, his pluck by stand-  . ing at  the door  of the Kentucky .senate  chamber and holding at bay some armed  . men who were about to lynch, a number'  of senators who had taken an unpopular  stand on the question of re-electing Blackburn. Popular opinion was divided'as  to the propriety of the lynching, with  perhaps a preponderance in,favor of the  enterprise, but the gleam of Chinn's revolver settled it in favor of the "nays."  Colonel Chinn drinks bourbon whiskey,  chews long green tobacco and cusses, and  the flutter of a petticoat is as attractive  to him as is the red flag of a race track.  In appearance he is the rollicking, roistering, nervy Kentuckian, and he plays  poker and is a. past grand master at old  sledge.  Colonel Chinn conies of a racing family, he being a son of a member of the  old racing firm of Chinn <fc Boyden, Avell  known a generation ago. They owned  many.'famous face horses in their day,  and the colonel has himself been the  breeder and trainer of some notable performers on the turf.  LITTLE   KINDNESSES.  People are apt to forget the little  things of life in striving to rccomplish  the big undertakings. . There is a thrifty  old proverb that says if we take care of  the pennies the pounds Avill take care of  themselves.. All of us have had ample  occasion to prove the truth ofthe homply  old siiav .and to find out Iioav much easier  it is to economize on big things than it  is on little. It is comparatively easy to  do Avithout the expensiVe articles you desire, but it takes Spartan fortitude and  determination to keep from throwing  ��� away your dimes oii silly things that you  don't really Avant, but buy because they  arc so cheap. It is seldom the dollars  that avc waste. It is with the small  change that we are reckless.  Might not a A'ery similar application be  made to many other things in life? We  are scrupulously careful of the big moralities. Wo do theduties tha t the church  and society and conventionalty have  market! out for us. * We would be horri-  licd at the,, very idea, of harming our  neighbors or mistreating "our -families,  but how often Avere a\'C utterly neglectful  of the little things���the kindly'word that  cheers a lonely heart, the gentle consideration that makes the daily work easier  for some one, the tender deed that avc  might do so easily if avo only Avould. It  is a question of small change oA'er again.  If it Avas something great avo would do  it. There are devout women avIio deny  themselves to send money to support foreign missions, yet avIio never say one  word of religious counsel to tho.heathen  in their own kitchen. There are women  who belong^to societies for the extension  of human brotherhood throughout the  world, but avIio treat the shop girl Avho  Avaits on them as if she were a automaton Avith no more feeling than a  Avooden image. There are women avIio  would  die for their husbands, yet aa'Iio  hardly giA'e them a pleasant Avord. They  are careful enough of the big duties, but  the little ones don't seem AA-orth attending to.  In reality Ave can no more afford to  neglect the little courtesies of life, and  the little duties, than we can afford to  throAV away our pennies. The prompt  answer to a letter, the note of thanks for  a book or paper Ave oavo to somerine's  thoughtfulness, the genuine appreciation  of the effort to entertain us may seem  trifling, but they go a long Avay toward  making or marring our happiness. They  are the small change Avith Avhieh we pay  our passage though life, and if we neglect them Ave are in the unenviable position of one avIio is trying to dead-beat  her way.  "If we take earn of the pennies the  pounds will take care of themselves." If  avc take care of the little duties, if avo  Avere' SAveet and kind and considerate,  wouldn't the big duties take care of themselves';' More homes are Avretched by  bad temper than by drink. More affection is alienated by fretting and nagging  than by all the co-respondents ever cited  iu the divorce courts, more friends are  lost through carelessuess than by treachery. ' It is always the little things, the  etceteras for the gown that runup the  bill at the dressmaker's, the tiny leak in  the household economy that counts tit  the end of the month, and the woman  Avho Avould be wealthy and happy must  keep a sharp lookout on the small change  of life. . .  The Snap Mule.  "The popular impression that the mule  is a sIoav beast, like most generalizations  ofthe kind, is conducive to error, for if  there is "anything'quicker than a well  trained 'snap mule' I for one haA'e never  seen it." The speaker Ayas a man Avho  has employed mule team's by the thousand oh levee and railroad contracts.  "The 'snap mule,' as yoii, may or may  not know, is a sort; of free lance about  the dredging Avork, whose duty it is to  'snap on' in front of the scraper team to  give the final jerk that.Avill set the filled  scraper in motion. '-._ As there is but one  snap-mule' to twenty teams, dispatch is  necessary, and it is next to marvelous  how the otherwise stupid .beast learns, to  know the exact moment to pull. He concentrates  his entire muscular energy in  that  momentary  effort, and  something  has  got to move.    The instant he feels  inotion in the load he relaxes his effort  and  is passed on to the next team.     The  'snap mule'is driven by A'ery long lines  that pass   back over   the team   to the  driA-er, who walks behind.    Not long ago  we had a big green Swede on  one of the  scrapers 'up    in  one  of   the   Kootenay  camps.    The first  morning out the new  hand got a good   scraper load, and Avhen  it came his turn to 'sua]")' the extra  lines  Avere passed back to him, and, not knowing  what  to do with  them,  he swung  them over his  head and  let them lodge  firmly on his shoulders.    The team mules,  cheered on  by the  vigorous language of  the driver, slowly braced theinseh-es for  the pull.      When   tho   precise moment  arrived, a   tremor  passed  through   the  'snap mule's'  frame and then, unwinding  like a released  watchspring, he gaA'e the  supreme jerk, and that green Swede simply turned three somersaults OA'er scraper  anil team  and  landed half way up the  grade,    it Avas all OA'er in an instant, and  the  mule   had   relapsed   into his accustomed      insensibility.      Quick?      Why,  Fitzsimmons Avasn't in it Avith that mule."  The Tremont Hotel  fa  New Silk Blouses,  Top Skirts,   Underskirts,  White Underwear,  Correct Styles,  and Lowest Prices.

It is contended that  the money and labor spent in clearing  grounds had better be spent in clearing  streets and making the town look tidy.  The ladies of the Catholic church held  a meeting yesterday afternoon and organized a ladies' aid society. The following ollieers were elected: Mrs. Ste-  phen White, president; Mrs. F.

A  social entertainment will be held in the  near future, the proceeds to be devoted  to the furnishings of the new church.  George Owen Buchanan of Kaslo and  Samuel Parker Tuck, formerly of Kaslo,  are both stopping at the Phair.  The number of men employed upon  street Avork has been reduced from V78 to  20. It is not likely that this force will  be increased during the summer. Archie  McDonald is foreman of the gang.  There are six applications for naturalization before the county court. 4^1?ive of  the applicants give" their resilience as  Nelson and the other conies from Nakusp.

Up till the hour of going to .presss this  morning the members of the local ball,  lacrosse and hose reel teams have not  changed their mind with respect to their  contemplated visit to New Denver on  May 24th.
