COAL FIELDS AT MIDWAY. B.C.
John A. Lyons, Formerly of Colfax,
Takes Big Block of Stock.
Our former fellow townsman, J. A.
Lyons, has recently returned from an
extended visit to British Columbia and,
in company with a party of fruit growers
and ranchers from the Spokane valley,
inspected the mine at Midway, B. C. In
an interview beld with a representative
of The (iHzette, Mr. Lyons stated that
the property had been developed by the
Boundary Mining & Exploration Com
pany and would be shipping coal in com
mercial quantities in a few months.
The mine is two and one-half miles
from Midwar, on the line of the Can
adian Pacific and Great Northern rail
ways, nnd the right of-way of the Mid
way & Wrnon passes the portal of the
Over 900 feet of tunnel, drifts and
BhaftH have been worked, with 400 feet
in coal. The present veir has a width
of nix feet and competent engineers
entimate the quantity in this vein at
4,000 000 tons. Besides; there are eight
veins, some of which arelarger in extent.
Frequent tests have been made of the
quality of the coal, which show it to be
equal, if not superior, to any coil mined
in the west. Lence Irwin made a special
test io his forge and pronounced it the
best coal he had used in 18 years, and
similar to the Cumberland (Perm )
Mr. Lyons has taken quite an interest
in thin property and is forming a party
to visit the mine early io January. He

the proceeds of which will be used for
Many Sided Kicks of the Camel.
A camel's hind legs will reach any
where—over his head, round ills chest
and on to his hump. Even when lying
down an evil disposed animal will
shoot out his legs and bring you to a

pared with a camel, a mule is really a
most considerate kicker, so beware
when the camel looks as if he is going
to kick.—New York World.

Where Money Buys Lifa.
The rich Chinaman if condemned to
fe&tb easily procures a substitute.
Same poor wretch, without money to
secure his spirits from becoming wan
dering devils, with the price of ins mis
erable life can purchase proper care
for his -.pint. Anything, in fact, can
be (l<>ne if you have the money. It is
this belief that causes the Chinaman to
commit suicide by taking his life on the
premises of Ins enemy t<> take venge
ance on him. His spirit, he believes,
will forever haunt him. There is an
other reason also. He knows thai as
sure as fate the officials will under
such circumstances come down upon
his enemy and strip him of everything.
I'o.u- Chinese have been known to sell
everything they possessed, tear dowu
their houses to sell the timber, sell or
rent out their wives and children ami
even sell themselves to procure money
for the proper rites for the peace and
comfort of the ancestral spirits. One
thing alone a Chinese will not do—
namely, sacrifice his son.-Kenneth F.

Lieutenant Colonel Sir Henry Smith.
formerly c tmmissloner of the city of

in his book of reminiscences.
E.irl Grey once complimented Sir

"I Bay, my dear fellow," he remark
ed on coining to a most elaborate one,
"this is the best testimonial I ever
read In my life."
'"I am very pleased, indeed, to hear
your opinion of it." Sir Henry replied,
"for I wrote it myself."
"What's that you're Baying? What
do you mean?" asked Earl Grey in as
"This is what I mean," Sir Henry
answered. "If a man has not intel
lect enough to write a testimonial in
his own favor and energy enough to
stand over a friend till he signs it he's
not fit for the position I aspire to."
A Pretty Busy Man.
When a man's business prohibits his
caring for the chickens, when his af
fairs become so important that he can
no longer shake down the furnace,
help dress one of the children or
tinker about the place with a hammer

better be put into the hands of a re

Hugo's Practical Side.
It may not be generally known that
Victor Hugo used to draft the adver
tisements of his own books, instead of
leaving the task to his publishers. His
correspondence with his Belgian pub
lishers gives the following example of
the groat novelist's advertising style:
"After the middle acres, the present
time: Such is the subject of Victor
Hugo's double study. What he did
for Oothic art in 'Notre Dame de Paris'
thnt he has done for the modern world
in "Los Miserables.' The two books
figure in his scheme of work as two
mirrors reflecting the whole human
life." An encouraging example to

Why They Got the Freedom of the City
Extracts from old records, showing
how people had earned the honor in
former days, were read at Canterbury
by Alderman Mason when the mayor
and ex-mayor were granted the free

the freedom for "undertaking to serve
as cook at every mayor's Michaelmas
feast," another "because he cured
Nicholas Johnson's leg" and a third
"because he married a widow with a
