VANCOUVER IRON PROPERTY.
Fennaylvanla Man Said to lie Buying
Seattle, July 16. Tlie Post-Intelligencer
states that managers of the
McKeesport iron works, in Pennsyl
vania, have been visiting the Pacific
coast, and have secured sites for new
iron works at Port Angeles, after an
unsuccessful attempt to locate in Vic
toria, B. C. The belief is expressed
that the iron deposits of Vancouver
inland have attracted the attention of
these iron men and that raw iron will
be taken from Bnrclay sound, and else
where in the island, down to Port An
geles for working. It is known that
the McKeesport iron men have secured
options on three properties in the Barc
lay sound oountry, namely the Ander
son Company, another owned by Wil
son, Uraden, Irving and others, and a
third the property of Thompson, Ura
den, Logan and Kaina. An option has
been secured on these claims until the
end of the year, and before the begin
ning of next month between 400 and
500 men will be taken up to Barclay
sound to exploit its mineral wealth.

From these the raw material for the

The Galena, one of the promising
claims on the Gordon river, paused re

will be continued until the end of the

Loomls, Wash., July 16. In the
Palmer mountain tunnel the last 30
feet driven has gone through a forma
tion highly mineralized, giving assays
each day running from $3.74 to $37 in
gold. The last shot at the face broke
into a well defined ledge, showing
much blue quarts full of mineral which
may prove one of the most important
in the history of the tunnel. This
ledge is in a different formation from
that of the other 22 and the good valuta
pieceeding the cuttings of the foot wall
make the crossing and testing of this

Oold Mining In British Colombia.
The first authenticated discovery of
gold in British Columbia, according to
Dr. G. M. Dawson, occurred at Mitch
ell or Gold Harbor, on the west coast
of Queen Charlotte island, in 1851, a
nugget weighing several ounces having
been accidentally picked up by an
Indian woman on the seashore. This
nupget wag brought to Fort Simpson,
and, coming into the possession of the
officer in charge of the Hudson Bay
Company's poHt at that place, was for
warded by him to the company's head
quarters at Victoria. An expedition
was at once fitted out, and, proceeding
to the spot, succeeded in locating a
quartz vein seven inches wide, "report
ed to contain 25 per cent gold in some
places." The find was worked for
some months and then abandoned, the
nnrrow vein entirely giving out; no
other indications of mineral were ever
found on the island, notwithstanding
that this extraordinary little seam ol
quartz had yielded in a few weeks it
was worked a value of $20,000 on the
woid of one authority, or $75,000 on
that of another. About the same time

Vancouver island as far back as 1835,

They recently held a great religious feast. Many hundreds of the sect came from
all parts of the world. The church originated in Michigan in 1880, and the head
quarters were moved to Moundsvllle two years ago. They believe that God's
people are coming to unity; that this is a reformation of the Christian religion,
and that the true Christians of the world are being turned by God to this belief.
They believe In sanctification by faith and divine healing.
The congregations', called the "Church of the Living God" or "Hollaess
People," are very economical. They wear no neckties or clothing of fashionable
design. The men all wear white shirts and celluloid collars, with bone collar but
tons, and no jewelry is worn. Everything is in communal style. They are all
quartered In the Trumpet Home. At this Home the single people have rooms of
their own and the families have suites. There is but one kitchen and one dining
room. These people do not mingle with the outside world, and apparently are
a very happy and contented set. They have a publishing house of their owb, aad

Curious Affliction of Those Who Delve
in Mi uea and Tunnels.
There is a disease which attacks the
laborers in tunnels and mines. It Is as
old as Egypt, but only within this cen
tury has It been placed to a specific
parasite. It Is a painful and danger
ous disease, often resulting in death.
A monograph on the subject of this
malady, called ankylostomiasis, has
Just appeared, and, coming as It does
from Hugo F. Goldman, M. D., the of
ficial physician In the coal mines of
Brennbeig, near Oldenburg, Germany,
It carries great weight, for It Is based
upon years of experience and practical'
treatment of this dread disease.
It attacks not only men but animals,
especially the horses or mules used In
the building of tunnels and the opera
tion of mines. It is a disease caught by
Ir.ectlon, like typhoid or cholera. It
may be contracted In the air or by con
tact with the germs, which are really
the eggs of the little worm, or ankylos
toma. as it Is called. This name means
"hooked mouth," and refers to the six
hooked teeth around the mouth of the
parasite by which it clings to the inte
rior of the human intestine. It is found
not only In the duodenum, but also in
the smaller intestines, where it grows
Male and female can be distinguished
among these parasites, the females be
ing larger and more numerous than the
males. The males grow to the length
of .3037 Inch, and the female is on an
average half as long again. They can
be seen with the naked eye. This ani
mal has neither breathing apparatus
nor circulatory system, and varies In
color from grayish white to brown and
even blood red, according to the condi
tion of the person in whom it is found.
The female lays a large number of eggs
In the human intestines, from which
they spread the disease infinitely under
proper conditions. The parasite and
the egg develop best in a temperature
between 65 and 85 degrees Fahren
heit The air and surrounding medium
should be moist. It Is on account of
the moisture and heat to be found In
mines and tunnels that this parasite
develops so perfectly among the toll
ers in these places. Darkness is also
necessary, sunlight kllliug these anl
malculne almost instantly.
Ankylostomiasis originated in the
Orient It has been long established In
Egypt but has been mistakenly called
Egyptian chlorosis, or aenemla, and
was treated as mere poverty of the
blood In red corpuscles. It passed over
from Egypt to Italy, where It was not
really understood until Dublnl found
the parasite tn 1838.
When the St Gothard tunnel was
built in the '70s. the disease spread
throughout central Europe, especially
In Switzerland, 'lhe further spread
lug of the ankylostoma to the mines of
Europe was quick to follow. When the
men were first attacked In the St Got
hard tunnel It was thought that a new
disease, the "tunnel disease," had been
found, but It was nothing other than
the ankylostoma, as was proved by
1'erronclto, when he found no less than
1,500 of these parasites in the duode
aim of a man who had died of "tun
n;l disease." a
The mode of Infection Is very ap
parent The men while at work often
tarry their hands to their mouths, or
eat their food in the tunnels or mines,
and in this way the parasite or its eggs
enter through the mouth, pass on into
the system and find a permanent home
in the Intestines, to the walls of which
they cling with all six teeth, feeding
on the blood of the unfortunate person
t'ae of Boap.
British critics of the Boers are fond
of asserting that the sturdy Transvaal
era use little soap. This may be true
Believe in ancu.;au .
or not. Even If true, there is plenty
of precedent. The Japanese, the most
cleanly people In the world, rarely use
soap. The Russians use vapor baths for
cleanliness' sake. Rough Inside cloth

tors who have cured skin diseases by
insisting upon their delicate patients
abandoning silk underwear and using
very coarse stuff instead.
Napoleon, whose hands were good to
model and beautifully white, used bran
and lemon juice, and no soap, unless to
shave. In England, on account of coal
smoke and smut, soap is more needed
than in countries with clear air. Many
fashionable ladles of to-day, who
would be much offended if they were
ealled barbarous or uncivilized, never
use soap. They grease themselves with
vaseline and such stuff and carefully
rub it all off again. San Francisco
Stole the Bridegroom.
A young man In a convivial party at
a Broad street hotel told the following
story: "t naa a good time at a wedding
last week. It was the wedding of a
friend of mine, and I and some of the
boys played a good Joke on him, and
he didn't get mad either. The Joke was
to steal him. Yes, right after the cere
mony we grabbed him up, banged him
Into a cab, and then drove him out six
teen miles Into the country, where we
locked him up in a barn and kept him
there three days. The bride waited for
him in a royal suite of rooms In an As-
bury Park hotel. We had persuaded
her to travel down alone, promising her
the groom would arrive at any minute.
Every evening, after our day's work
was done, we trotted out Into the coun
try to see the groom, with baskets of
food and liquid. Pretty good-natured
about It the duffer was, too, I tell you
though, those three days were different
slightly from what he and the girl had
been counting on." Philadelphia Rec

Clergymen of the past often had
traits of Individuality which are per
haps not so common at the present day.
Archbishop Sumner was once holding
a eonnrmation in an English tjarlsh
church, when he observed that a num-
ber of peoplj were standing in the
aisies, aunougn several pews were
empty. He stopped the service, and
askea the reason,
"The pews are private property," an
swered a man, "and they're shut on."
"There can be no such thing," said
the bishop, authoritatively. "Let the
pews be opened."
"We can't open 'em!" shouted some
one. "There re locked."
"Is there a locksmith here?"
"Yes, my lord."
"Very well; let him remove the locks.
A hymn shall be sung meanwhile."
So the locks were removed, the audi
enee seated itself, and the confirmation
went on. Youth's companion,
