ESTABLISHED  MOND AY > MORNING,  OCTOBER J 4,   1901  - DAILX EDITION'  WINTER   PROGRAM   OUTLINED BST DIRECTORS.  ST.  MARY'S   DISTRICT   FORGING  AHEAB--RAII.ROADS   IN  CONTEMPLATION.  J. C. Drewry arrived in Nelson yesterday from Kaslo, where lie was attending a meeting Qt* the directors of the  Truo Blue mine. The object of the meeting was the outlining of tho company's  programme for tho approaching winter.  Just what will bo dono, however, very  largely .depends upon the cost of operating. To' move their ore to Kaslo the  owners of tho True Blue have to rawhide  and team their ore a distance of five  miles and the cost of transport may be  so heavy that it will not be advisable to  ship very extensively. What the' directors did decide upon, however, was the  building'of a new rawhide trail and the  improvement of the accommodations at  the mine so that work can bp carried on  comfortably all winter. .Tenders will  then be invited for the" hauling of the  oro to Kaslo, and if they are considered  favorable extensive shipments will then  be made. It is/thought that there will be  a scarcity of packing outfits this winter  to move tho ore that will be offering.  If this proves to be the. case the True  Blue .will only ship sufficient to .cover  the cost  of  the  winter's  development  :ers of a mile, but expen-  rould be it would be more  than offset in the saving resulting from  tlio operation of a line offering tonnage  tlnoughout almost its entire length as  against operating a line over which  there are long barren stretches. If this  road is built it will probably do away  with the proposed connecting link of the  Crow's Nest line from Kootenay Landing  to Procter, a line which all agree will  be very expensive of construction and  from which practically no local tonnage  is to be expected.  Concessions tor Liberia.  ' LONDON, October 13.���The'Associated  Pi ess learns that the Liberian officials  who arrived in England early in August  with* the' object of 'obtaining 'from "Great  Britain the right to navigate, the Manila  river have been successful, 'despite the  fact that Great Britain was unwilling  at first to grant the request of the Republic. In addition to this the envoys  discussed with the colonial officers further and more important propositions.  These were put in the form of a memorandum, which is now"being submitted to  tlie Liberian government. -If, as it is  thought most probable, >- this memoran-  -. dum is ratified, the Liberiari** interna-  , tional status, it is believed, will be con-  ' siderably strengthened. '  IMPERIAL AND EVA GROUP  contractor, was fined ?550 and costs for,  violating the Alien Labor law in importing alleged miners and laborers from the  United States under contract, will probably be heard on its merits. Yesterday  when the matter came before Mr. justice Walkem, A. H. MaeNeill, KC��� for  the prosecution, objected that Daly &  Hamilton on Geiser's behalf had filed  their marked check for the amount due,  in place of having their client enter into  a recognizance as required by the code  and the rules,of court, after some argument the judge reserved his decision  and he will hand his'judgment, a written one, out tomorrow. It will hold in  favor of Mr. MacNeill's contention, and  this will end the "matter, there being no  appeal from the judge's finding Mr.  justice Walkem has dismissed the application to free Beamish, on the ground  that he has no jurisdiction to hear the  case. Gillan will renew the'apphcation  before Mr. justice Irving at the Nelson  assizes during the week.

They estimate the  number of men to be employed in. the  new industry" at not less than 100 and  at times probably 130. It is exppcted  that at .least' 50 -families will make  Northpoit their home as a result.  The company has all the arrangements >���  ���made' for tlio building of a tramway next  *  spring; which is 'bound -to effect a considerable saving in the'" handling of its  output, so that it becomes an object to  the company;'to delay*  shipping-unless  . ��� favorable,.terms are* offered. - ,  ���.  , - Mr. Drewry has great hopes of the advancement of the St. Mary's district. All  that this district requires in the opinion  of all who arc familiar with it is a, rail-  . .way, and Mr.,Drewry says he has excellent reasons for bejieving that the' rail-  .    way will soon be built, and that when"it  ,   -is.built it will become.the main line for  "    the .Crow's   Nest ? branch. -   It   was t a*  * knowledge-of the possibilities of ttiis  -'section in the-way "of-tonnage which  "' prompted the promoters of the Crawford  Bay /-"Port Steele road to apply to the.  provincial legislature some time ago for  a charter.     Tho incorporators of this  ������ "-road had a hope at the time of interest-'  ing James J. Hill in their scheme, 'but'  Hill afterwards refuted to become inter-  *��� ested and the scheme fell'through. Since  then the C. P. R. people'have been givr  ing the scheme a gfreat deal of attention  and "a start has now beeu made on the  St. Mary's end of the road, which will  ultimately be extended through to Kootenay lake with Crawford bay as its rail  terminus. , There aro several factors at  work now which will stimulate the managers of Canada's great railway in their  efforts to prevent the  tonnage  of  this  .   district from slipping away from them.  * ' One of these is the smeiter which the  owners of the Sullivan group of mines  ' are preparing to erect at Marysville. Ac-  ������cording-to-Mrr^Drewry-the-full-scheme-  of the promoters of this smelter' have  not been laid before the public.   In talking   their   program   over   with   James  Cronin of "the St. Eugene, senator Tur-_  ner, who is the leading   spirit   in   the  smelter.project, is .reported vas   saying  "that tho intention of himself and his associates was to refine as well as smelt.  But in any event, if nothing more than,  smelting is attempted as a starter, there"  will bo a considerable tonnage available  for the railroads from Marysville.   As a  smelting point Marysville will have advantages over evory other point in the  province in that it is convenient to the  ores as well as the fuel.   The oro from  the Sullivan group, for the treatment of  which  the  smelter  was  projected,  are  said to carry an excess of iron.   It will  bo desirable therefore to   secure   other  ores from tho properties along the St.  Mary's river and   its   tributaries.    The  necessary oro is there and in a quiet way  the owners of the properties are steadily  showing up the tonnage.   With the ore  in sight, and demand for .it, the chance  of .securing tho railway necessary for its  transport  becomes   almost a  certainty  in itself; but this is only ono fact<jr. The  C. P. R. has an ertensive timber limit  at the upper end of St Mary's lako, and  timber is fast becoming a very valuable  article in*East Kotenay.    The lake itself forms a natural   storage   reservoir  for sawlogs and whero the river drains  the lake at the lower end there is excellent water   power   for   milling   purposes.    All that   remains   therefore   to  market tho timber in the limit is a line  of railway from Marysville to the, end  of-the lake, and that this is not likely  to be wanting very long may be gathered  from the fact that Hugh Lumsden, the  chief field man on the C. P. R. engineering staff is now at work on its survey.  This   piece   of  road, Mr. Drewry  says,  will be but a section in a through line  to Kootenay lake.   Oro tonnage offering  lor the Marysville smelter will warrant  the construction of the second section,  and an increased-tonnage from the upper portion of the St. Mary's district as  well as that of the* Crawford Bay district, and the advantage of a saving of  three or four hours in the time across  the continent will call for its completion  through  to Crawford Bay.    There are  three passes over the summit from the  St. Mary's   slope  to   that  of  Crawford  Bay.   The scheme  would  probably' in-  yolve the cutting of a tunnel a distance  Why the Bond Was Dropped.    -  A H. Gracey of the Imperial Development   Syndicate  has- leturned   from  a  trip of .inspection to the. Imperial and  Eva groups on Lexington mountain in  the Lardeau district,* which, were undpr  bond to the London <__ British Columbia  Gold Fields. Mr. Gracey was accompan-  paniedon his trip" by George Gillies of  Toronto* the president of the Syndicate.  Mr.   Gracey's  trip, was  for'the  two-  fbd" pui pose of enabling Mr. Gillies to  sec the property and also the better tb,  enable him to lay out a program* for'  the resumption of work upon the groups  by the Imperial Development Syndicate,  ln speaking of the dropping of the bond'  by   the 'London .&   t>ntish   Columbia  Goldfields  Mr.  Gracey said  that .while  the failure of the propeity, to-come'up  to the 'requirements of the holders of  the bond with the amount, of work .performed upon itvwa. naturally a great  disappointment to him, he had not lost,  the least, of his < confidence in it, nor  had the work done upon it injured thev  property-in^any way. So far from this*  being the "case he was of the opinion  /That the. shareholders of the development-"syndicate were the gainers to the  amount of the cash payment of $5000, is  well as the-whole of thc-$_0,000 spent in  the property's development. He .did. not  like    to. criticize    in   any   way   the  action of'the holders of the bond, but  it 'was  his  opinion  that  with" further  -worki his syndicate "would have in the  Imperial and' Eva a property'sufficiently  inviting either to sell or work. As_ an  evidence-of his own faith in the property, in which he and Mr. Gillies are the  largest   'shareholders,   he   has   recommended that work be continued on it  ,all winter.  The syndicate has had ro  difficulty   in 'meeting   the   heavy   payments that have recently''fell due and  has ample funds for carrying on 'work  for the winter with a force of a dozen  men. So' far as the shareholders ih 'the  syndicate are "concerned, the appearance  of the property.need give them no concern  as. they  can  readily  get  oiit ail  that they have put into it or are likelv  to-put-in.���The-property-may-not-make  the great mine which it was one .ime  hoped, 'but this is not necessary to return-every dollar that has gone into hy  and with a goo'd return. If with, further  work this should be deemed advisable,  all that would be required would be'the  installation of a small stamp mill and  the quarrying out of the ore that has  been  exposed  on  the  surface already  The -proceeds ** of this ore'would more  than  repay thoso who   are   interested  their money, but Mr. Gracey does not  anticipate anj- movement of this kind.  His own opinion is that when the No.  3 tunnel is put in another 400 foet it"  will strike at a depth of 500 feet the  point of contact of the two ledges upon  which "work  has  been  going on. "This  tunnel was run in on the largest ledge  and for about 100  feet it had a ^very  good chute of ore. On' the'surface'this  ledge had an inriiqated width of 50 feft  at. one point   whero   it   was   crosscut.  Whether it holds this  width at depth  has not been fully determined, but at  the one point in the tunnel at which the  ledge was crosscut the size of the ledge  appeared to have narrowed down to 15  feet.   Careful  samples  taken  from   the  roof of this tunnel for a distance of 60  feet along this chute have given assay  returns of $30 to the ton, so that this  in itself is not a bad showing. In driving along the tunnel passed out of, this  chute and entered a portion of the ledge  which,  while  it carried values,  might  be  regarded   as  comparatively  barren  and when work in it was stopped the appearance of it had not undergone any  perceptible change.  Mr. Gracey does not contemplate going ahead with this amnel for some  time yet. His first work will be the driving of the No. 6 tunnel into the contact of the two ledges and in the sinking of a winze upon the oro chute cut  by this tunnel. He does not profess to  see any further into the ground than  anyone else, but he is of the opinion  that in the course of a few weeks he  will have a much greater knowledge of  tho Imperial and Eva ledges, "and a  knowledge that will justify more extensive work.

"It is understood that  as soon as the sleighing shall* be ��� good  enough for heavy haulihg,-ore will again  be shipped to Midway, and taken thence  by rail to the* smelter at Greenwood.  Last winter the,. Carmi sept down -885  tons of ore of good grade, "and preparations are being made to considerably  increase the output this winter.  The Granby company is prospecting a  big ridge on Knob Hill and Grey Eagle  properties with a view to, letting the  work of removing the surface debris On  contract, preliminary to considerably extending its surface ore-quarrying operations. The area to be stripped is about  500 feet long by about* 300-feet wide. The  same company has commenced /work'on  the Grey-Eagleron the south slope of the  hill, about 1000 feet south of the southern boundary line of the Knob'Hill. An  enormous showing of ore outcropping  here is being stripped, the intention being to open another big 'quarry and  work northward towards the Knob Hill  quarries on the north slope of the hill  and which are being extended southwards. These together will give a  length of about 2500 feet along .which  ���quarrying can be done in ore.  At'the British Columbia Copper Company's Mother Lode mine, near Greenwood, a single blast recently��bi ought  down more than 2000 tonsyof ore. 'This  was in *No. 1 quarry, and--'was?the result  of firing four deep holes; ��� Two more  stopes were lately opened at the 200-foot  level of the mine, and. at .-.the-.300-foot  level Lhe new plan of working���pillar  and stope���has been fairly .started,?so  that several stopes will 'shortly'be open  here too.

We would, be. far froni committing ourselves to'the^opinion that-all these smel-  'ters will be' immediately;-placed under  construction, but thisCweTWil^say, that  there'is not one of the projects which  has^not a certain amount, of - legitimate  justification.derived from th.e condition  and prospects of the mining industry  It is now a foregone conclusion that a  copper smelter,will be erected at some1  convenient point on Vancouver Ipland.  which,will have the ore of the���Lenora  mine,at Mount Sicker, as its base of supply In addition to the Lenora with its  steady output of from 60" to'.80 tons, a  day of, first-class ore, and Its ^possible  average "mine run,- were^ a smelter, con-  T-enlenfTor-uver 100 toirax,<_i__>y-tbe-Tyee  and Hayes mines have.npw reached the  shipping stage,'While "the? Marble' bay  propenes are shipping an average of  1000 tons a month. ' There te^hofany  doubt vthat the JDpast'mines can'how  supply a steady supply ot ore1 for a copper furnace of modern capacity apart altogether from the .contemplated developments at Howe Sound; which wjUl provide a problem in local treatment peculiar to themselves. r       ��� **  For the Boundary country.two new  smelters are ccmtemplated, one in^con-  s.nection with.the Snowshoe mine and one  in connection with the   Brooklyn, and  Stemwinder-mines.   The  necessity! and  justification for these plants arise Irom  the-fact that all the great mines in the  Boundary country can make an important saving in smelting profits by having  their own plants, while the self-fluxing  character of the  ore does away with  many of the difficulties encountered in  opoiatmg a smelter in connection with  an individual mine.   Therefore the duplication of copper furnaces in the Boundary district is only a queetlon of tho  de\elopment of  tonnage.    It  has also  been decided to put a lead smelter ln  operation in East Kootonay.  East Kootenay possesses all the requisites for a  successful smeltfng industry in a more  marked degree than any othor portion  of ��� the. Province-    It iS'.iqulte -.evident  ���that, a lead- stack is not only justified  in East Kootenay," but?by:affording a  ready market for the output of less-developed  mines ������ will  have an  important  effect in forwarding the development of  .the district.;?: :'-'���"' -:-: ^;-������'���"';'"'  '.'?-'���;  Some discussion has arisen respecting  the opportunity for aysmelter on 'Slocan  lake.

"'    *  Suffering From Heart Disease.  LONDON, October 13���Cecil Rhodes,'  whose part in politics and empire making is vividly recalled by the Schnadhurst letters, Is living almost absolutely,  alone at a quiet hotel on a diet and with "  tho attention of a man who Is seriously, '  ill.   Thero is uo doubt that he is suffer-V  ing from heart disease and is no longer  tho robust man of former times, yet ho  never missed a day this   week   at   the  office of tho British Chartered South African Company, buryiug himself in do- '  tails and conducting long, tedious meetings without complaint or mention of  his health.   But after these, in the quiet,  of his hotel, ho seems to become almost  a wreck, "like a man liable to go off at  any moment," as one of his visitors said '  on coming out of his room.   Usually Mr.  Rhodes is supremely indifferent to'public sentiment, preferring rather to ride  rough shod over criticisms, but in thf;  matter of tho Schnadhurst letter he has  exhibited tho.keenest desire to hold oil"  adverse commont.  .V|l  *��� *'t. .I  X  ;*.  ...

This influence is controlled by,the monicd element, and the monied element, is a potent power at Ottawa when an election  is not in $ight. The argument used by  this element, is, in effect, that it would be  unfair to eastern investors in Le Roi  shares to 'deport the Missourlans;' that  the interests of the eastern investors  are worthy of as much consideration as  the   interests   of   the   workingman   of,  WALL  PAPER  Ihi- i.  .c.ibOn  wut   to  we ha\ .  jully tlio dull  or   Wall   Papor.  kosp   it   moving  made up bundles  of ;ill lots that have run dovn in quantity.

Edward Williams,' who. is  practically the agent of the" minister of  justice, has been at both Rossland and  Northport for two weeks. He, no doubt,  has made a report on the .situation.  What the'report Is, is mere conjecture.  But judging from the bitter attack made  on Mr. Williams in a meeting of the  Rossland Liberal Association- hy Dr.  Sinclair, it is only fair to assume that  the report, favored the deportation of  the aliens. The labor troubles in this  province during the last two years have  shown on�� thing very, clearly, that is,  that the laws are notf strictly and impartially lenforced. The department of  the attoirney-general is very clearly  controlled by a man who,is unwilling to  enforce any law that is -repugnant to  corporations, and it is doubtful if there  can be that respect for -the law that  there should be as long as the department of justice is controlled by men  who do not stand for the impartial enforcement of all the laws. When the corporation that violates the law is treated  as is the individual who does likewise,  then; and not until then, will the laws of  the country be respected.  The coast" papers are" dumb on the  question of, ^redistribution.. They know  if Yale and Kootenay are given seats in  the legislative assembly and in the house  of commons, according.?to population,  the politics of the province will no longer "be dominated by" politicians residing  in Victoria,anil Vancouver. Yale and'  Kootenay should have 13 pf the 38 members of the,3iouse, and Yale and Kootenay, together with Cariboo and the Lil-  looets, shc-ujld have .three of the Jelgiit  members in the-house of commons. The  members "from Vyale and Kootenay  should stand' together on all questions,  ,because it. is only iy doing so that they  can obtain fair* treatment. But the  trouble is/itoo .many, of the members  'from both- .Yale and -Kootenay worship  Jpolitcal tin gods made at the coast, and  by "so" d6ing'invariably get the worst of  it individually, besides iosing prestige  for their districts.'  Fair and impartial  ���-     _   v.   -     i  enforcement,of the laws, fair and equal  distribution of .seats in both local and  federal parliaments, and the guidance  of up-country . leadership only, should  be three of the planks in the platform, of  the party .of,<-the people in .Yale and  Kootenay in "the next provincial campaign. ? \- * ,*  :, James.Douglas Prentice, since he has  become minister of finance, is shaking  up the"o__ceslof the different mining recorders throughout the province. He is.  insisting, that_the work of these .offices  must'be done with_the minimum?of-cler_,  ical assistance. Suppose that 'James  Douglas Prentice begins his work of. reform in his own office in Victoria,  whero there are so many clerks that  they are in each other's way.  A Silverton Sufferer.  SILVERTON, October 12.���To the Editor of The Tribune:" Notirig the discussion which has arisen over the issuance of a circular by the Retail Grocers'  Association, which antagonizes the request of the so-called wholesalers of  Nelson, for discriminating rates to the  various points to wheh they ship, I, as  a sufferer from tho inroads of these retail-wholesalers, wish to say a word.  W. W. Beer said at the board of trade  meeting the whole trouble lies in the  definition of- a wholesaler. Now since  my first entrance into trade, I have always understood that a wholesaler was  one who sold to those who sold again,  and not a seller direct to the consumer,  as Nelson's wholesale-retail merchants  have proven themselves to be. In proof  of this I can quote the names of three  wholesale-retail grooers in Nelson who  entered into direct competition with  Slocan merchants for the trade of mines,  and ultimately succeeded in getting it;  ;and yet these same retail-wholesalers  hope to secure trade from the very merchants they compete against. These people are the- Kootenay Supply Company,  J. Cholditch & Co., and A. Macdonald &  Co.  The grocery dealers in Nelson and vicinity have therefore a real grievance,  and they would be doing themselves an  exceeding injustice if they did not oppose' the request which would give these  retail-wholesalers so great an advantage  in shipping. If these -aspiring wholesalers wish for the advantages which the  occupancy of a wholesalers piano would  give them, let them define their position  to the full satisfaction of the retailers.  J. A.

CURRKNT HATK OF INTiSKEBI* PAID.  TRICKS  IN EYERY TRADE  The Pako Athletes of the Circus.  "There are tricks in all trades," said  the old circus strong man, "blit the trade  of the circus Hercules is mostly all  tricks. Anybody with ordinary strength  can do the lcats that seem so wonderful when done by those tanbark Sampsons In fact few ot them require any  peculiar muscular exertion, but arc ,ac-  _ cording to the New Yoik Sun, accomplished simply by tnckciy.  "Tho dumbbells used by the performers are always hollow and weigh much  less than the figures marked upon them  would indicate     When  you see a man  pretending to put above his head a bell  marked 400 or 500 pounds you may safely conclude that he is trying to fool you  The veiy greatest weight ever lifted m  this way was 246 pounds, 'Cyclops' accomplishing the  feat  in   Cleveland   in  1S93. ' Genuine dumbbells,   closely   resembling the hollow ones, arc thi own out  into the audience   for   inspection,   but  these are nevei   the ones  used  by  the  strong man or woman.  "Another common  teat that arouses  * wonder is the breaking of stones with  tjie fist.    Spectators think that a man  who can bring his clinched hand down  upon a rock and flake a piece off with  one blow must have tremendous muscles,  but an ordinary manvcan do this if<he  knows how, while, on the other hand,  old Samson himself couldn't have done  it unless he had^been put on to the trick.  -    "You will notice that the strong man  always provides'a solid piece of iron or  stone upon which to crack his  rocks.  Now, if he held the stone to be smashed  firmly against  this   support   he   might  pound away at it until ^doomsday, without hurting anything but his fist.    But  notice closely and you will see that he  holds the small stone a sixteenth of an  inch above the support, and when he hits  it it's the concussion   that   breaks   it.  -       Any one can do it neatly after a little  I'     practice. .  "A little more real strength is needed  in the feat' of lifting a barrel of water  " and two, men with'the teeth, but not  much. A man ol ordinary strength can  accomplish it 'To begin with, the water  barel, which if "genuine, .would weigh  with its contents about 900 pounds, has  a false top and bottom and holds only  enough water,so that a little cau be let  out of the bunghole to deceive the onlookers. Fastened to the bairel and to  the waist of the performer, and concealed by a sash which he wears, is a rope.  This is deftly hitched to the barrel when  it is lifted up' for him to take the  mouthpiece in-his teeth.  "The . mouthpiece    exactly   fits    the  mouth so that whatever weight, comes'  hero is usually'��� sustained by .the jaw.  Here comes the thrilling moment! Two  men lift themselves upon   the   barrel,  and, with two other sturdy fellows to  support his back and keep his balance,  the strong man slowly lifts the barrel.  Bending ,back," he supports the weight  at an angle of about forty-five degrees,  apparently with his teeth,?but actually  upon lii"sr^T_Mt"r_^t'_rTr^e__fitionan_i_.t7  but, as a matter of fact, more strength  is required in the men who support him  than in the star, performer himself. Not  more'than 200 pounds was ever actually  supported by any athlete in this fashion.  "The mouthpiece used in this trick is  employed in all acts where the performers appear to hang by their teeth.   It  is so constructed that when one gets it  . in his mouth he cannot lot go of it until  tho weight is taken off.   So circus folks-  do not really support their weight or the  weight  of  any  other  object  by   their  teeth.    It is' actually on the neck that  most of tho strain comes and performers  doing this stunt very much get an abnormal   neck   development.    Nowadays  ray neck measures sixteen, inches, but  when I was in the. business it was nineteen inches around.   ;- '   "*  "About the only act that requires real  strength is that of supporting a horse  on a teeter board, but"even in this trick  .the most important needs are nerve and  a well trained horse.    Bodily, strength  comes third, I'll never forget to my dyeing day the first time I tried this.   I had-  ringed up two chairs as strongly as pos1  sible in a barn and fastened them to the  floor, after  which I had-]put .ayboard,  across between them to support a teeter,  upon which I had-trained my pony to  walk.   When the animal had learned.his  lesson thoroughly1 and wouldascend the  teeter and -balance at the.'worcl of command, I prepared for the final test.-  "In place of the board connecting the  chairs, 1 had. put my own 'body?. Then  locking my* feet!firmly in one chair and.  my arms around the- back of the other,  I called .'Romeo!' ': . - '��� 7-. x.Z :  "Be came from the'stall, straight for  the teeter? Then my nerve failed ine, I  cried "Whoa!' wildly, but Romeo didn't,  seem to know the meaning of the word.  On he came, directly- up, the incline.  There' was ho backing out; All that I  could do was to hang on flesparately  and this I did. .When Romeo got above  my chest, he balanced himself gracefully for a while���it seemed an hour to  me, though it was only a few secorids���  then he went off the other side. Ihad  succeeded and the trick, was not so hard  as I had feared.,    .-..,..'���'���  "It appears ?to the audience as if the  man in the act was supporting the  weight largely'with his neck. Such is  not .he case, for the most of it comes on  his arms and legs, and the latter are  fastened so that they -cannot   become  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Intorest allowed on deposits.

'  "Not unlike this trick, but requiring  even less muscular power, is the feat of  supporting a lot of people on a board  placed across your body while you are  bent over backward. This is certainly  the easiest way for a man to support  his family I know of. Before the athlete  bends his body his feet are braced so  strongly that they can't slide. Then  he bends back and a board is placed  across his knees and shoulders, upon  which another board is put crosswise for  the men to get upon. In this position  the bones of the arms and legs support  the weight, and as the bone of a healthy  human^ being is pretty strong a number  of men may get upon the boaid without  causing the slightest inconvenience.  The bones will have to be crushed before  anything will give way.  "One of the strong man's greatest accomplishments, one that has a particular charm and terror for the small boy  ���is the biting m two of nails. This  long-cherished delusion, too, is a fake.  The men who do this never use the common steel nails. They use cast-iron ones,  whose gram makes them break more  easily. Nor are the nails bitten in two  by the teeth, as is commonly supposed,  but they are simply broken by the  strength of the fingers. To bite a nail  in two put the thumb of your right hand  under the nail near the middle, with the  index finger on top of the nail at the  right end. Then put the other end of  the nail between your teeth on the left  side of the mouth. Push down sharply  and strongly with your index finger and  crack goes the'nail! If you do it quickly  the crowd will think you have bitten it  off, but you haven't. Try this with a lead  pencil if you have not a cast-iron nail  handy.  "A great deal of unnecessary sympathy is wasted upon the' circus man  who stands up proudly in spangled  tights and lets another circus man bring  down a sledge hammer upon a "* rock  placed upon his head, with force enough  to break it. This is spectacular, but is  entirely painless and calls for no great  strength or endurance. Upon the cranium of the strong man is put an iron  "contrivance weighing, about 150 pounds  and provided "with cushions both above  and where it rests upon1 the head. A  pretty good sized rock is used and the  hammer is also a heavy one, so you can  sec that the blow that cracks.the rock  'is really a serious one. But most of the  force is, taken, up. by the.rock-and the  rest by the iron and the cushions, while  the only sensation felt by the subject  is a gentle tap.  ','No more difficult \than this is the act  whereby the hero of the canvas tent permits a rock to be broken upon his; chest,  with a blow, from a-sledge, hammer.  So long as the subject's back is free and  does not rest against any solid object,  the trick is perfectly simple. A ."little  illustration. Take a board up and let  it lie freely > in your hand and hit it  smartly with a hammer. It is difficult  to hurt your hand, and the thicker the  board the less the sensation. But now  put your hand on the table and hit the  board. Hurts, doesn't it? Well, it's  the same with the rock on the chest.  -Let.nie-try-it'.on-you."  The reporter demurred, but the former  strong man hunted up a stone and a  sledge hammer, which he said weighed  nine pounds. He put the rock on the  lower part of his own chest, bent backward, and told the reporter to break it.  This the,latter did successfully and then  consented to have it tried on. himself.  With a mighty blow from the sledge the  rock was-shattcrcd, but the only sensation felt by the subject was a slight  pressure on tho chest.  NELSON   BRANCH,  BURNS BLOCK.

Botha's   army   must   have retreated  from Fort Itala with a fine appreciation  of the disadvantages under  which   the  British fought throughout the Transvaal  war.    There can be no doubt that the  effectiveness of the Boers has been overestimated- from the habit  of   judging  their achievements in actions in which  they met the enemy on then own terms  It is also probable that crifcism of the  British army has been harsher by reason  of judgment passed upon engagements  fought- how, when and where the enemy  chose. 'It'is common comment that the'  Boers have a. general   resourcefulness  which on numerous fields was not displayed by the British troops   The Boers <  won these testimonials fighting almost  entirely on the defensi.e.   Fiom the engagement at Fort   Itala it is  apparent  that' the effective and   sometimes' brilliant qualties*which the Boers, exhibited-*  on the defensive are not features of then-  work as assailants.   Fighting on the defensive a mere handful of British troops  routed and inflicted heavy lobs upon an  attacking  rmy  of  Boeis     The   battle  suggests the probability that the Bi itish  are-better and'the Boers less brilliant'  soldiers' and strategists than has been  the generally accepted   inference   from  results m.the South African .,war.���Toronto Telegram.

Le-  gassy case, in which the prisoner was  charged with opening a railway switch  during the progress of the recent trackmen's strike.

Agents for Giant Powder Co., Truax Ore Cars, Canton Steel.  local smelters and mills. The value of  this ore can safely be estimated at, $150,-  000. Mining and smelting and milling  it gave employment to 4000 men, all of  whom should be citizens of thelcountry,  in order that the country should, have  the full benefit of the industry, an industry, that is based on one of the natural  resources of tho province. The smelting  and milling supplies used by these men  and the wages paid them totals a large  sum monthly, probably not far from-half  a million dollars. All of. this money Is  produced from the mines, not a dollar  of it coming from the outside. If this  is a statement of fact, the mines of the  camps in the Boundary and the Slocan  and in the neighborhood of Nelson and  Rossland are not only paying their way,  but paying handsome profits besides.  If the mines that are.now shipping, produce ore that sells for $675,000 a month  at a cost of ?500,000 for labor and sup-"  plies, 'the capital invested gets a return1  of $175,000 a month, or ?1,680,000 3 year.  If this is the earning power of the capital invested when the'mines at Rossland are being worked with unskilled  labor and. some of the largest mines in  the Slocan are shipping only the ore taken out in . doing^ development work,  r what will the earnings be when all'these  properties are. being worked with full  forces of skilled miners?  Mining in British1 Columbia can only  result-in large and regular dividends being paid to the-investors1 of capital; arid-  it- only a little patience is used and. a little, give-and-take exercised, in" no bther  portion of the Pacific Coast will labor  be so well remunerated.  .
