OVERRUN WITH  PRAIRIE DOGS.  Kansas, which is always discovering some new pest, has now officially;  resolved-to exterminate \Aie-. prairie  dogs.' Thei prairie dbg; i^mnst be  known, is a'pest not "equaled even  by the grasshopper, which for *a  number of-years'made" Kansas the  butt end of < the universe anfd the  land-plastered^witK mortgages. So,  when prosperity dawned upon the  state, the farmers decided that the  new pest of prairie dogs must go.  The agitation against the prairie-  dog was started about three, years  ago, and is, just now receiving  attention from the state legislature,  where a bill has been introduced to  spend $10,000 in poisoning every  littlQ dog on the plains.  Representative Olson* of Trego  county has introduced a bill in the  lower house of the Kansas legislature, and the same has been approved by the committee on appropriations, to appropriate the sum  of $10,000 to scatter the poison to  kill these pests. In every township  where' the prairie dog lives���and  that includes about fifty' counties  in western Kansas���special elections are to be held for the purpose  of choosing a commissioner for the  extermination of the pests. The  poison, which is bi-sulphide of carbon, is to be paid" for by the state,  and will be purchased by the state  secretary of agriculture, who will  send it to the commissioner. He  .virill saturate the bi-sulphido in. cotton and push it down the* holes  where these little animals make  their*" homes. "' The~;dirt is then  tramped down around them', and  this is said to be the last of them.  1 This experiment has been tried  by a number of farmeWin western  Kansas, and has proven-a great success!, It invariably kills-.the'dogs,  arid*'no other dogs ever burrow another hole where the" poison is once  placed. In Scott and11 Kearney,  counties there ai*e' dog towns at  present twenty' miles square. The  dog holes are not further ' than  twenty feet apart any place in "the  town. " Once' this tract of Jand-Tvas  a valuableifami,<but the dogs came  into it and killed off the crops every  year until the land was abandoned.  One sure" way to kill a prairie dog  is to pour water down his hole until  he conies to the; surface and' then  shoot the .little 7ariimal. - But this"  was an endless job and as- fast as  one dog*was killed two -were born  to take its place.  Then efforts were made to fill .up  the holes with dirt and- rocks^but  this was as, endless a job as the  other. Then the ^farmers hired the  little boys and girls to stay at home  and "watch .traps set above the holes1  tp catch the dogs when' they came  to Ithe"' surface: After a while the  little fellows got so smart that they  would only come to tlie surface in'  the night time, and then'they would  cut down the' corn and wheat crops  in a single -night. It is-estimated  that no less than $250,000 annually  is sacrificed to these pests, and that  2,000,000 "acres bf land' has-been  made worthless by the "prairie dogs;  By-their destruction, of crops they  have forced'more than one 'family  to'enter^the^pborhduse and made  the western part of the state barren and depoulated.

Manage  cigar is considerable; and to offset  this difficulty the end which' is in-'  serted in the mouth is filled with a  soft fiberf'of tobacco,'so that when  the'eigar is grasped firmly between  1 the teeth'so "great'* an' indention is  made'thatrf or tlie'remainder of the  six-days' smoke the' huge cigar fits  naturally to the mouth and can be'  held without any conscious effort.  Supposing that a woman begins  her   smoke Monday 'evening,   she  smokes for an hour Or two without  hardly    making   any  appreciable  decrease in sthe big cigar.   When  she has fini-shed her, smoke she carefully puts out the fire at the end  and in this way keeps it for the  next day.   The size of the cigar is a  grown   woman's   size,  while    the  younger girls,and' children smoke  smaller   sizes.   " Even   seven-year-  olds smoke a roll of < tobacco the  size of the' average cigar used in  this country. " If a . woman smokes  a cigar sixteen inches long what  would a grown man smoke ?   That  is a problem that would, naturally  have for an answer "a cigar twice  sixteen inches, or thirty-two inches."'

and* will' probably be ' concluded
today>- During the greater part of
!-yesterday' defendant Sproat'was in

ascertained.^ A good portion of the
time'was occupied'by the'solicitors''
arguments. x,TIie other 'defendants'
who_were* examined were Messrs.
Mclnnes/Austin, and ' Wilson.' Mr.
Mclnnes' VJ evidence " corroborated
what had been told by Mr/Sproat.
inasmuch as that the plaintiff wa?
to'receive his wages by the sale of
ore that was taken, from themine.
George Wilson,-who„twas'J"employed
at the''mine, stated that he had
been engaged by > plaintiff Marino,
and not-by the defendants.   The
point the defendants wish-- to show
is   that1 Marino did mrtfloan the
company any money, and therefore
he should not be paid any. * Two
additional witnesses will be examined this morning. ", -*

In Chambers/   j   _
The session of chambers^ yesterday morning was a busy one.   Tho,
case   of   winding   up the" Florida
Mining Company of Kaslo was discussed at considerable length and
was finally declared in favor of the
plaintiff.     H.  S.  Lindsay, who if.
the plaintiff, says thatsome of the
members 'issued to themselves stock
"tcTthe amounfof-80,000 shares~~and*
this money he declares is  due the
company.  -The counsel for the defendants, argued that a non-per,
sonal liability company such as this
one is could not be wound up under
the  provincial '.act   and that the
evidence which was given by Lindsay was   only   from hearsay and
could not be used in the* case.   The
case has already been appealed.
Fire Department Reorganized.
The Nelson fire-brigade was reorganized yesterday, when Thomas
W., Lillie, of Vancouver, waf«
installed as chief. Lillie's election

has the contract to run the tunnel
on the Crow's Nest Pass in order to
do away with the Loop, was in the
city yesterday- hiring men. He
secured twenty aud all will leave
for the pass this morning. He
brought about 50 men from the
Boundary country, who left Nelson
yesterday morning. He expects to
increase the force to 100 or more.
Work is to begin at once. At what
point the tunnel will be started is
not known, but when completed it
is thought that it will be from 1000-
to 1200 feet in length. When the
new track is in use the time saved
on the route will be about onejhour..
It is expected that it will be completed during the coming fall.
Twenty-five Accepted Yesterday. -
Dr. Kennedy and lieutenant
George S. Beer were busy all day
yesterday at the armory in recruiting the Nelson men for Baden-
Powell's ., constabulary in South
Africa. The medical examination,
this being the preliminary step, was
as far as the recruiting, was advanced. Out of 31 men who were
examined 25 passed successfully.
Those who have been accepted thus
far have taken nearly the highest
marks possible. Mr. Beer said that
the men were the best physically
that had ever been examined in the
Kootenays. Out of the fifteen
applicants who were examined in
the morning eight took the highest
possible marks and none' were rejected. There are about ^twelve
more to take the examination this
vmorning.-i  ~*«    ->
~ A number of married men made
application'; but they had to be rejected, as the" department had or-t
dered that only single men should
be taken., ~ The examination in
shooting and riding will be held at
the recreation grounds, commencing
at 9 o'clock-this morning. Two
good horses have been secured" by
Mr. Beer, and it is thought that all
will be able to pass that part of the'
examination. -     ■>_"--

One of the"most'curious of tho
natural phenomena peculiar to tho
Rocky mountains is the'mysterious,
storm known to the Indians as "the
white death." J'"'Notinany years ago
a party of three -women _and' two
men were 'crossing; ~a part\ of
Colorado in 'a^wagon, during -tho
month of February.. It was a delightful morning, very frosty, but
with brilliant .sunshine, and the
atmosphere as \ "clear as crystal
Suddenly one of-the.women put
-her_hand to her,face and^said^thatl
she had been stung; then other
members of the party did the same
thing, but no insect could probably
live in that temperature. lA moment;
later they noticed^that the distant
mountains - were 'disappearing behind a cloud, of mist, a most unusual thing for that time - of the
year. They drove on and in a few
minutes a gentle a wind began to
blow and the air became filled with'
fine particles of something that
scintillated like 'diamond dust in'
the sunshine.  .   , .<
Still they^drove on until they
came to a cabin, where a man signaled them to stop., With his head
all muffled up he, rushed out and
handed the driver a piece of paper
on which was written: "Come intc
the house quickly or the storm will
kill aii of-you. t Don't talk outside
here." No time was lost in getting
inside and putting the horses under
cover, but in less than an hour the
whole party was seized with violent coughs and fever, and before
next morning one of the women
had died with all the symptoms of
pneumonia. The others managed
to pull through after long illnesses,
Scientists call this phenomenon
frozen fog, but whence it comes has
not at present been traced.
