"Kill not, for pity sake, and lest ye slay,
The meanest thing upon Its upward way."
���The Buddha.
Tho Buddhist   abstains  from  flesh
eating for two occult reasons:   Firstly,
bejptise he believes in the evolutionary
pilgrimage of the  soul  through  the
various material planes up to man and
on to  the  infinite, and, therefore, the
animal world being but  one   removed
from man, to take lifo for food is a violation of tlie law and will reflect on the
sbedder and partaker at some   time or
anothor during his pilgrimage, and retard his upward flight.   Secondly, tbat
inasmuch as the Buddhist deems spirit
everything, therefore  he   makes   the
flesh subservient to it, and to  do   this
it is necessary to abstain from all that
tends  to  coarsen   the  particles  that
make up the physical body, and  from
the undeniable fact  that   "as  a  man
oateth, so is he," so that the body fed
on thc lowest elements, such as cereals
und plant  life, will  become   In   time
more etherialized, and to use a familiar
term, more  roanagoable,   under  this
diet than under that Inflammatory one
which obtains in general throughout the
western world and this continent; and
one that is responsible to a  large  degree  for  the  ungovernable   passions
that are prominent; for the meat eater
not only carries into his body the  diseases of the animal world, but he also
partakes of their natures  and  this  is
particularly prominent ln the case of
those wbo eat largely of.pork.
The 20th verse of first, chapter of
Genesis is conclusive evidence, if any
noed be from a scriptural point of view,
that it was never intended tbat man
should slaughter innocent animals in
| order to satisfy an abnormal appetite,
particularly when the cerial world
affords au abundance of food far ahead
in nourishing powers, of anything that
flesh can offer. The vuestion is often
raised that to eat tho vegetable world
is to tako lifo seeing that it is everywhere. The answer here is that ln the
case of cereals there is no life sacrificed, but where in plaut life there is,
it being low down in the evolutionary
scale, the sacrifice is very trifling, further, if betweon, say an oyster fod on
garbage and a plant growing near by,
the transmutation in the case of the
flsh ts carried on by the mollusc Itself,
whereas the plant transmutes it by the
power of air, and therefore offers an
infinitely purer food than the oyster.
In a work published Borne fifteen
yoars ago called "Tho Perfect Way,"
and which ls conceded to bo one of the
finest of its kind, tho following is the
author's remark on flesh eating: "To
"humanity in paradise were given as
"meat the tree fruits and the herb
"grains, and men wore contented with
"tho food which nature freely bestowed.
"For the bodily appetites knew no law
"but that of healthy natural nutrition
"and obeyed tho impulse within. But
"so soon as It acquired a perverse solf-
"ish will, a new lust arose, in the
"nature of tho beast of prey. That
"this is a literal truth, all the poets,
"all tho seers, all the regenerate testify, bearing witness also tbat para-
"diso can noyer bo regained; regeneration never completed; man never fully
"redeemed until tbe body has been
"thoroughly cleansed from the stain of
I have merely touched on the fringe
of the subject, but sufficient, I hope, to
make it clear that the ocoult together
with the ethioal and physical reasons
for vegetarianism as adopted by millions of Buddhists In the East
and many In the West make
the subject one for our conslderatloo
���nd respect, even If we are not at pree-
j ent disposed to give It full adoption.
By a Majority of About 50,000 in
Ibe DominioD.
Lieut .-Governor  Cameron,   of   the
Northwest Territories, Dead.
The plebiscite returns would seem
to indicate that 'prohibition has been
carried by a majority of about 50,0(10.
From an impartial point of view it is
only fair to say that  this  majority is
due to the active 'campaign carried on
by the Temperance party and   it  does
not therefore, strictly speaking, represent the true feeling of tho Dominion,
inasmuch as the vote polled was very
small, and a masterly inactivity characterized      the     anti-prohibitionists
throughout.   Still, that is their  look
out, and should the  government  now
bring in a prohibitory measure in order
to carry out the promises made to the
Prohibitionists, no one on  the  other
side has a right to complain.
The voting at Kaslo was fair, as out ot
the 240 voters, who voted at tho Provincial election, 149 went  to  the  polls
Thursday and 77 voted yes and  72  no.
Victoria voted 1,128 no,  810 yes; Vancouver,  562  no* 1,000 yes; New Westminster, 165 oo�� 4113 yes;.    Honors are
easy at Sicamous, 1 for and 1 against;
whereas the Okanagan gives a majority in favor of 75.
The estimated majority for British
Columbia is 520 for prohibition. The
following are tho returns for the Dominion by provinces so far as known:
Yes.    No.
Ontario 25,148

in the firemen's contest,  the   first  of
which was the wet test. In this, Rossland won iu 30 4-5 seconds, although*
the Kaslo, Nelson and Trail teams vigorously protested and contended tbat
tbey were not giveu fuli water pressure. Certain it is that it was not a
matter of speed in running, because
both Nelson and Kaslo beat Rossland
in the hub-arid-hub  race.   The  Trail
i ������)
boys contended that they had not been
fairly treated in the wet test, and refused to enter the hub-and-hub race.
"Immediately after Trail ran Nelson
entered a protest, contending tbat tbe
pressure was not the same as it was
when tried in the morning, and ran
under that protest. A difference in
the pressure seemed evident to almost
everyone when the Rossland team ran.
The protest involved a question that
required investigation, and the three
judges rendered a conditional decision
in favoi of Rossland, provided it was
found impossible to deviate  the   pres-
Lleut.-Governor Cameron Ileal.
London, Ont., Sept. 26.���M. C. Cameron, lieut.-governor of the Northwest Territories, died at 9 o'clock tbia
morning at the residence of his son-in-
law, Mayor Wilson.
One of Kaslo's Townsmen  Drowned
In the Lardo River.
Word was received in town yesterday
that John Marsh, oue of Kaslo's citizens, had been drowned in the Lardo
river tho previous day. It seems that
Marsh and an Indian had taken a boat
load of potatoes from Murphy's ranch,
on the Lardo river, down to Argenta
in a canoe and were returning to the
ranch. After entering tho mouth of
the river tbey hoisted a large sail and
had not gone far when the craft became unmanageable through the want
of ballast and tlio hoavy gale that was
blowing, and ran on to a snag and capsized. Tho Indian immediately struck
out for tho bank, but Marsh hung on
to the boat and drifted down stream.
He was seen to let go tho boat and a
short timo after ho threw up one hand
and sank, and was not seen again. It ts
not likely that tho body can be recovered as the current is very swift and
the accident happened not far up from
the river's mouth. The deceased was
a young man and leaves a wife and one
little baby. Mrs. Marsh and child are
at present at Pilot Bay. She has the
sympathy of n large number of friends
in Kaslo.

Can the Canadian Pacific Railway
company claim the whole of its subsidy
for the buildiug of the Crow's Nest
Pass railway while the Kootenay lake
section of the road, between Nelcon
and Kuskonook, remains uncompleted?
This is a question which will probably
come before the federal government,
and lt is one in which the citizens of
Nelson are very much interested, since
if the railway company can secure the
subsidy without performing the work,
the Incentive for Immediate construe
tion is lost. In the opinion of the great
majority tho subsidy which was voted
to the Canadian Pacific Railway com
pany, called for the construction of n
railway to tlio city of Nelson. If this
is correct tbe company will not have
earned this subsidy until the all rail
connection with Nolson is made. It
may be that tho Kootenay lake section
���of the road will be tbe most expensive
to construct, and it may suit the purposes of the construction company to
utilize a ferry service between Nelson
and Kuskonook, pending the comple
tion of the Kootenay lake section, but
these conditions do not alter the fact
that the terms upon whicn tho subsidy
was granted call for tbo construction
of a railway to Nelson, and until such
railway is constructed not one cent of
the subsidy should be paid.���Tribune,

Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 20.���Seven
masked men held up the west bound Missouri 1'iu-itie passenger train, known as
the "Little Rock and Wichita express,"
between Leids and Dawson, seven miles
from Kansas City, Friday night. To prevent Interference they lirst smashed the
telegraph instrument! at the Belt line
station, the junction of thc Belt line and
the Frisco, ami marched the operator, D.
M. Hisey, before them to a jioint 'hulf a
mile east.
While the two men covered Hisey others Hugged the train and quickly covered Engineer Slocum and Fireman West-
ton and compelled them to dismount nnd,
detaching the engine and Pacific express
car, ran them down Uie track a mile and
a halt toward Dawson. The passengers
were unmolested.
At a desolate spot up the road the baggage ear was quickly broken into, great
quantities of dynamite placed upon the
through safe und thc local safe placed
on top of it. So much explosive was
used that the ear was literally blown to
splinters, and the safes were thrown
away to one side of the track. This morning nothing but the fragments of the local safe could be found und the tlirougli
box was wrecked.
The express olliciuls absolutely refuse
to make a statement of Ihe loss, saying
simply it was small.
Flying debris from the shattered express car carried down the telegraph wires
along the Frisco track, which parallels tlie
Missouri Pacific at the point of the robbery, and completed the stoppage of telegraphic communication begun at the Belt
line station. It was, therefore, some
time before news of the robbery became
known and still longer before a wrecking
crew could be secured. A new engine
had to be secured, as that wliich the
load men hud been using hnd been killed.
lt was 3:20 Saturday morning before
the wrecked baggage, which hnd been
strewn in all directions, was gathered together, the train made up and the trip
south continued. Thc robbery waa undoubtedly one of the boldest cvet committed in this locality so noted for holdups.
Operator Hisey 'has delivered to the police a card wliich he says one of the robbers handed him last night. It is signed "John Kennedy, Bill Ryan, Bill Anderson, Sam Brown and Jim Redmond,"
and purports to convey the information
that these men were the highwaymen.

Indiana, nnd late minister to China, ex-
Qovernor Urban Woodbury of Vermont,
ex-Governor Jumes A. Beaver of Pennsylvania, Major General H. McD. McOook
of the army (retired).
The commission spent an hour and a
half with the president during which a
general exchange of views ns to the scope
of the commission of investigation occurred.

The president had put his own views in
writing and read them before proceeding
to the verbal discussion.
In this statement he suid the complaints
lias been directed especially at the surgeon general's, the quartermaster general's
and commissary general's departments of
the army und he suggested thnt the conduct of these departments should receive
especial consideration. To this specific
request, he added, it wns his desire that
the entire military organization should,
if it appeared necessary, be made the subject of inquiry, saying lie wished the commission to go to the bottom of thc subject in all cases and proceed with ils
work without fear or favor.

Washington, Sept. 20.���The onicinls
here nre watching with interest the progress being mnde by the military commission in Havana in securing the evacuation
of the island of Cuba. The commission
has been slow in making reports to tha
war department, but from the latest it
appears that the body would like to have
more definite instructions as to procedure.
It seems that the Spunish side has s-iid
thnt they could not begin the evacuation
of the island until the first of November
and that it could not be completed before
February 28.
In view of the alarming state of the
Cubans, who are suffering from hunger
and their inability to obtain work, the
president decided that he could not assent
to the consumption of so much time.
Therefore he caused the commission to be
instructed to demand that the evacuation
by the Spaniards begin not later thnn
October 15 and tlint it be completed by
December 31 next.
What the result of this demand will
be is not yet known, but it is suid the
administration is determined to allow no
dilatory tactics on the pnrt of*the Spanish forces in leaving the island, although
disposed to permit reasonable indulgence.

Paris, Sept. 26.���Mine. Paidmicr, wife
of M. Charles Ernest Paulmier, member
of the chamber of deputies from the department of Calvados, has added another tragedy to the bewildering intricacies of the Dreyfus plot. Mme. Pnul-
niier Friday entered the offices of Da Lan-
terne and asked to see M. Millerand. M.
Millerand was absent and M. Ollivier,
who was present, stepped forward to receive tlie lady, who, without any explanation, Whipped out a revolver and fired
twice. M. Ollivier fell to the floor wounded.    He was taken to a hospital.
Mme. Paulmier was Uiken into custody
and when questioned answered coolly: "I
wish to kill M. Millerand."
She explained that Do, Lanterne had
slandered herself and husband because
her liusband had written the letter to
General Chanoine, the minister of war
with reference to putting a stop to the
attacks upon the anuy provoked by the
Dreyfus affair.
The alleged slander published in Da
Lanterne wus contained in an article writ
ten by a journalist named Turol, ami not
by M. Millerand or M. Ollivier, in which
mention was made ns to the conjugal re
lations of Mme. Paulmier and her hus
The article, it is presumed, was pub

Expedition���France ln a Terrible
London, Sept. 20.���Tlie recent dramatic
development of the Chinese puzzle enme
us a disagreeable shock to tlie people ot
Great Britain and their chagrin was intensified by the fact that they were revelling in their apparent diplomatic triumph iu the disgrace of Li Hung Chang
and the wane of Russian influence. _>*o.
only in Great Britain but abroad tlie
queen dowager's plan is interpreted as a
fresh defeat of British policy.
it is generally believed that the mission of the Marquis Ito, the Japanese
statesman, to China, for tlie purpose of
attempting to bring about un otTensive
and defensive alliance between Japan and
Cliiua was the last straw wliich aroused
the tigress in the empress dowager and
enabled the Russian party, led by Li
Hung Chang, to regain its influence, it
is well known that the Chinese in spite
of tilieir defeat in their war witli Japan,
still regard Uie Japanese as inferior beings and tlie intense hatred of the dowager empress for anytliing Japanese is also
un acknowledged fact.
Advices received here from tlie European
cnpitala indicate that political circles anticipate the reinstatement of Li Hung
Chang in power and that the reactionary
wave in China will lead to a closer understanding between Uie United States, Great
Britain and Japan, resulting in combined
pressure in favor of reforms. The French
new'sp.ipers rejoice at the prospect of Li
Hung Chang's return to power, simply
because it would be unpleasant for Great
Tiie Temps, referring to the reform
edicts of tlie emperor of China, says:
"His reforming ardor was marked by
more zeal thun discretion. To suggest
that the mandarins publish their accounts
of receipts and expenditures was like
plucking out their souls."

The impatience here to learn the outcome of the journey of General Sir Herbert Kitchener to Fashoda is in no wise
allayed and although the press on both
sides of the channel is calmer this week,
yet anxiety is evidenced in Great Britain in regard to the effect wliich the determined action of General Kitchener will
have upon France in view of tlie critical
political situation in thut country. There
are fears that the French authorities may
seek a foreign diversion from their internal strife. Tlie Parisian newspapers,
however, adopt a more compromising
tone and instead of declaring that the-
French ling will never be lowered at Fashoda they now put forward the occu-
pntion of thut place hy Major Marchamt
as a lever by whicli France nuiy be able
to obtain advantages elsewhere.

Britain must buy our renunciation of our
claims  there as she bought Germany's."

M. Brisson, the premier, over thc alia
of Lieutenant Colonel l'iequart, who is
now in secret confinement in tlie military
prison of Cherche Midi, placed there apparently without tlie knowledge of the
government and in spite of tlie fact that
lie was in the hands of a civil court, ha*
disgusted even his own personal friends,
who call him a coward and a dolt, while
the enemies of a revision of the Dreyfus
case, accuse him of being a hypocrite and
of having sold himself to a Dreyfus syndicate, an organization which is undoubtedly existing. General Zurlinden, who is
once more military governor of Paris,
with tlie recognizance of General Chanoine, who succeeded the latter as minister of war, acted without reference to
the premier, M. Brisson, who with a majority of his colleagues, wus completely
dumfouiided at his proceedings.
The supporters of the cabinet declare
that M. Brisson, in order to save the constitution, should dismiss Chanoine and
Zurlinden, and even arraign them for
treasonable conduct. Only bold action
will secure the supremacy of civil law.
One satisfactory feature of the prosecution of Colonel Piequart is that the
wtor office has engaged to give him an
open trial, wr'eh M. Brisson insisted upon
beforo he consented to the prisoner's

The location of the exhibit of minerals
in the Spokane fruit fair building lias
been changed by the management and at
Uie request of Manager Stuart. The display will have the south end of the south
wing, where ample space has been set
aside for it and where it will be separate
from the fruits and agricultural products.
.Manu^iT Stuart received a letter from_
C. T. Cross of Silverton, II. C, who says
that the cabinet in which the ores from
that district will be displayed is about
completed. It will lie four feet square.
He says: "The mineral exhibit we are
sending will weigh at least 1,000 pounds
and may reach 2,000. Over 20 mines will
be represented in the exhibit. We. have
several large blocks of clean ore which
we thought we could place on the floor
around the cabinet if there will be room.
Our representative will reach Spokane
October 1 or 2 and he will unpack tlie
samples and arrange them in the case."
"I'hat is the sort of letter that makes
ns feel as if wc had not been working
altogether in vain," said Manager Stuart. "A number of camps are coming to
the front in just that enterprising way,
and 1 think the exhibit will cover thc
majority of the camps around Spokane.
Hut there are a number which have not
responded. 1 have almost begged with
tears in my eyes to get a display from
Trail Creek division, but the claim owners up there seem to have forgotten that
the camp owes something to Spokane,
and 1 have been unable to get any assurance that an exhibit will be sent.
"Republic is almost as oad. That
camp is depending almost entirely on
sSpokane to bring it to the front, aud yet,
apparently, there is no one there who is
enterprising enough to take the matter
in hand and get up an ore display for
the fair. In other towns mass meetings
have been called to arrange for it, but
Republic has not made a move. The south
half of the reservation will be better represented than the north half unless some
of those people up there get a move on."
A meeting of the citizens was held in
Slocan City a few days since and all
plans made for sending an exhibit to
Spokane. D. Hanlon was appointed to
come with the display as the representative of the camp. Ymir camp will have
a fine display. Baker City is coming.
Florence and Dixie camps will be in it.
Okanogan mines will be represented. W,
H. V. Rickards of Harpster, Idaho,
writes: "I expect to be at the fruit fair
and will be in the mineral exhibit with
samples of ore." Libby, Mont., reports
a great exhibit on the way. The mines
around Hope, Idaho, will send displays.
P. C. Stoess. who lately returned from
a trip to Alaska, will show specimens of
the ores of coast mines and will also have
on exhibition a collection of curios.
The marble and onyx companies of Stevens county are arranging displays which
they promise will excel in beauty anything ever shown in tlie mining department before.
Some mining machinery will be shown
including some of   the latest   improvements in gold saving machinery wliich
will be in practical operation.
, Steven* County Mlnea.
Almost the first mine in Stevens coun-
*"���*��* ty, and in fact the flrst producer, is the
Old Dominion, situated six miles east of
Colville on Old Dominion mountain. This
property was discovered in March, ltttt,),
was a producer from the grass roots, has
made fortunes directly and indirectly
for scores of men, can boast of more development work than any other mine in
the state, and is still rich with ore bodies at a great depth along the main tunnel, whiclt penetrates the mountain to a
depth of almost a mile. The mine hns
not been worked for nearly two years on
account of the low price of silver, but
the management has recently put a force
to work clearing out the tunnels and lilting the property up for active development and it is expected that the mine
will again enter upon the work of extracting ore from the depths that have already lieen reached by the interior works.
Tlie most extensive shipper of ore in
the state of Washington today is tlie
Bonanza, 1(1 miles north of Colville. It
waa discovered in the fall of 1895, and
since that time has passed through many
hands. It has been sold under the 'hammer two or three times, and has been ��
most expensive investment for those who
have ventured upon exploiting its ore
deposits. The present management, however, found it to -be a different proposition. A number of Spokane men bought
it a year or so ago at sheriff's sale, and
employed the best skill in the mining
profession to develop it, with the result
that it is.itoday one of the moat substantial mines in the state. It is a galena proposition, but the ore bodies are
much heavier than in any-other property
of the same character in tho country, lt
has been shipping two cars of ore per
day to the smelters of the coast, and
there seems to be no limit to the supply
that keeps widening and coming up as
depth ia obtained. About 40 men are employed, and aside from the extraction of
ore, a force of men is kept busy sinking
to greater depth all the time, '.he lower
workings nre down nearly 500 feet, and
tho mine is paying all expenses for dead
work and laying aside a liberal sinking

There is an object lesson in the history
of the Mountain Lion, in Republic camp,
for other claim owners to profit by. As
a prospect the claim was not more favor-
able looking than dozens of others in
the camp, but W. 11. Brown, who owns
half of the claim, is a miner and understands his business. He laid his plans
so that every dollar's worth of work
would make permanent improvement of
the property, lie first sank a shaft and
uncovered a pay chute. He realized that
the cheapest and best method Of developing the mine would be by tunnel, as it
would act as a drainage canal and save
the cost of hoisting and 'hauling ore by
wagon, a large item in most mining operations. He began the work of driving
into tlie hill. The task would have appalled most men, for it meant over 700
feet of drilling and blasting before he
could reach the ledge. He had to go even
50 feet farther before he demonstrated
that he had "millions in sight. He and
his partner furnished every dollar that
went into the development until it was
no longer possible to operate without machinery, when some assistance was called
for. The assistance came promptly, and
it is probable that by July 1, 1800, the
property will be among the dividend payers of the camp. If other claim owners
would follow thc example set by Superintendent Brown they would soon
know whether or not their claims were
valuable, and could quickly end their
suspense, and in most iiises it would not
cost more than to burrow around on the
"African t'lrena" la ( oiiilnu.
'A Montreal dispatch to the Toronto
World says that Charles J, McCutiig, the
well known stock broker, has returned
from London, where he spent three
months. He brings the news that the
"African Circus"' has turned its attention
to-Canada. Being asked to explain, Mr.
McCuaig said: "It means that Cecil
Rhodes, Kelt and others who have been
operating in South Africa, have now
turned their eyes toward Canada. In
fact, one of their number, a Hritish member of parliament, passed through -.Montreal the other day bound for Rossland,
and it is supposed that with his arrival
in the Kootenay quite a number of properties will change hands."
Strike In Flathead  County.
J. M. McPhee, a well known prospector from the Slocan country, B. C, who
has beeu prospecting this summer on the
soutli fork of Flathead river, this state,
returned to Kalispeil, Mont., a few days
ago after doing some work on a claim he
has located there. Mr. McPhee has five
feet of high grade gold, silver and copper ore in the face of an open cut. The
vein, wliich is from 10 to 12 feet in width,
can be traced nearly the full length of
the claim.
Strike tn the llnckhorn.
A rich strike has been made in thc
liuckhorn claim in Deadwood camp. An
open cut has exposed an ore body which
gives an average value of t) 1-2 per cent
copper and over $4 gold. A shaft was
sunk 14 feet in this, and from the bottom
of the shaft values as high as 21 per cent
copper and $U in gold have been obtained.
This body of ore is no less than 200 feet
wide on the surface. It is of the same
character as that in Mother Lode, Sunset
mid other big Deadwood properties. The
liuckhorn is owned by E. A. Bielenberg
and J. Dunn. *
The Bureka Queen Tunnel.
News conies from Republic that the
showing in the Eureka Queen has greatly improved, the tunnel having encountered quite a tlow of water and the rock
in the face showing oxide of iron, both
favorable indications that the expected
ledge is not far away. The property adjoins the San Poil on the soutli and it
is the hope of the owners to strike the
.San Poil ledge, whicli is thought to run
through the claim, though its exact
course is not to be determined by surface showings. The property is owned
by a Spokane company.

and on that basis the levy was fixed at

gained by beginning the work in this fall.
Senator Shoup appealed at once to the
secretary of the treasury and had no difficulty in convincing him that tlie weather
in Boise in the winter would not in any
way interfere with Uie construction of
the building. The secretary at once directed the plans for the building to be expedited in the architect's office and also
ordered the preparation of advertisements
to be ut once issued for the various details of the construction.

Senator Shoup has also been laboring
for several years to secure the establishment of a weather bureau at Boise, a
general bureau for the state of Idaho, lt
was not until this year that he was successful in lulling a sufficient appropriation
made for that purpose. The secretary of
agriculture assured the senator last July
that the bureau would be promptly established, hut owing to the extension of
the bureau service in the West Indies, it
has been delayed. The senator had a conference with Chief Mixire to learn when
the service for the state of Idaho could
be established and received assurances
that it would be done about tlie first of

Paris, Sept. 20.���At a meeting of the
cabinet this morning, all the ministers
being present, a decision was taken in
favor of revision of the trial of former
Captain Dreyfus, und the documents in
this case will be sent to the court of cassation.
Crowds of people outside the ministry
of the interior, where the cabinet council was held, loudly cheered the ministers.
The cabinet ordered Minister of Justice Sarrien to lay before the court of
cassation the petition of Madame Dreyfus
for the revision of her husband's case.
This court, therefore, will decide the legal question us to whether the first trial
of Dreyfus was vitiated hy the forgery
committed by the late Lieutenant Colonel
The minister of justice has given instructions that proceedings are to lie
token Immediately against any one attacking the army.
In the Intransigeant today Henri Ro-
chefort accuses Major Esterhazy of having
been bribed by the so-called Dreyfus syndicate to "cover himself with dishonor
by confessing to a forgery, of which
charge he was twice acquitted."
Rochefort adds that he paid Esterhazy
1,000 francs for copies of all the documents in tlie ease and in addition, with
two other newspaper men, lie paid Esterhazy, who was without funds, 300 francs
monthly to prevent him dying of hunger
while waiting to obtain a pension. Continuing, Rochefort says:
"Recently, without any apparent incentive, Esterhazy mysteriously went to
London, abandoning 300 francs monthly.
Why this emigration! Who paid for this
journey? With what money has Ester-
hazy paid for his meals?"
M. Clemenceau, in the Aurore, remarks:
"France is divided into two camps,
those who conceive that the interests
of tlie country depend on the concealment of facts by lies and those who
have a sufficiently high esteem of tlie
country to separate enthusiasm from aspersions of justic. and truth."
The Libre Parole asserts that Ester-
hazy has telegraphed to the minister ot
wur protesting against tlie story published in the Observer of London purporting to be a confession made by the
major, the substance of which wns that
he was the author of the bordereau, the
document which is said to have furnished tlie proof of tlie guilt of Dreyfus.

of the burns, making the third victim of
the fire.
Playa del Este, Guantanamo, Cuba,
Sept. 2.1.���The wrecking company engaged under Lieutenant Hobson in the
work of raising the wrecked Spanish
war ships, lias succeeded in floating the
cruiser Infanta Maria Teresa. The cruiser, after being got afloat, was taken in
low- by the Potomac, and convoyed, by
the cruiser New _"ork, the Scorpion and
tlie Alvurado, proceeded to Guaiitiuiamo
bay, where she arrived last night.
The successful issue of the attempt to
float her was greeting with tlie blowing
of whistles, me fire of national salutes
and 'by cheers in wliich thc Cubans joined, disturbing the noon siesta.
Off Siboney the barometer and the
wind indicated the approach of a hurricane, and the towing power wns increased.
The Newark under Captain Goodrich,
rendered valuable assistance iu the work
of saving the Maria Teresa.
The cruiser is being put in condition
for her trip north hy the repair ship Vulcan.
Only Trophy of Snntlago.
The Infanta Maria Teresa has always
lieen one of the favorite war ships of the
Spanish people, possibly because of her
name. She is an armored cruiser of
about ".OHO tons displacement. Her speed,
when in lighting trim, is believed to be
something over 20 knots un hour. Her
buttery at the time of the battle off Sin-
tiago consisted of two 11-inch, 10 5.3-inch
and a number of rapid fire guns. She
has an armor belt of 12 inches over her
most, vulnerable parts.
It cost Spain over *N,000,000 to build
her, but she was sunk by Admiral
Schley's flag ship Brooklyn in 20 minutes. Of the six war ships Spain lost
on that memorable day in July tlie Infanta .Maria Teresa is the only one that
will ever float again.

, The splendid display of ores from all
.the principal mines in the Slocan and
Lardo-Duncan districts, which has
ibeen on show at the Kaslo hotel prior
to shipment to the New Westminster
exhibition, and later to the Earl's
('ourt exhibition, to be held in London,
Eng., next summer, should be sufficient
evidence to all who are interested in
the future welfare of this city, tbat we
have something around us about which
wo need have no hesitation in bringing
to the notice of those, both here and
abroad, wbo are in a position to invest
some of their surplus earnings, even, .if
,thcy cannot be induced to take a prominent part in the development of this
rich country. But it is essential, nay
vital, that the li_ht of these prospective riches should not be hid- under a
bushel; they cannot possibly be advertised too much, and no pains or means
should be spared to attain that obiect.
At New Westminster, of course, we
Hiiall be, to a great extent, showing to
-out* own poople; but when It Comes to
London, it Is a very different proposi-
���tion, and therefore it behoves us to
formulate some plan whereby, whon
'those sampli-s get yonder, thut there
Will be some one around lo interest
and explain to the thousand.? of visitors, who otherwise will see just about
thc same if they were at the ttilneral-
'ologkal section of the British museum.
It may bo stated hero that many may
say that this class of people are ho
good to us; but those who enteftaln
these ideas do greatly err, for la a
matter of fact the mining share ma**
lift finds its patroniaeve among ull
8or,ts and conditions of meu and womeu,
and particularly among that large
army of the latter sex who have limited
means and to whom the prospect of a
-ten per cent, dividend is as salmon roe
to a trout.
We therefore do not  see why  some
' arrangement can not be arrived at between the cities of  the  Slocan  most
vitally interested, ft** each to contribute proportionately to a -fund  for the
purpose of sending  a representative to
London  next year, in order  to give
prominence to the Slocan.   It  may be
said that the  Province will be  represented there. Possibly ao, but we want
someone from the Slocan for, as usually
happens, the man  sent to represent
British Columbia may be a coast man
' and either uninformed on mining mat-
1 tars or may be mixed up with some proposition    on    Texada island or  the
' Klondike. There is a story told of a man
who wanted to sell a wagon, his strong
point was the springs, so whenever the
weak point, the seller yelled: "But
look at the springs." And by always
bringing him back to "the springs" he
at last succeeded In making a sale.
Now there are other districts in the
Province which we do not ignore, but
"our springs" is the Slocan; if a man
shows signs of wandering he must be
brought back to "The Slocan.". It is
"The Slocan" we are after and we
can't make a better Investment than
the one outlined above, so that at the
close of next year's exhibition we shall
have the satisfaction of knowing that
"The Slocan" has been advertised in
such a manner that the average Britisher will have gained, not only an Intelligent idea of where the Slocan is
geographically, but what is more vital,
that it offers some of the finest opportunities for making money in legitimate mining of any section of the empire.
"The editor of the Kaslo Kootenaian
and the preachers of that divine city
are now arguing the question of Sabbath observance. The Kootenaian has
taken the stand that God is everywhere,
and tbat he can be sought amidst tho
grand temples of nature on the Sabbath
day as well as In the cathedrals erected
by man."���Cranbrook Herald.
The discussion iu question was practically between the editor of the Kootenaian and the editor of the B.C.News.
Once again We shy that the divines had
nothing whatever to do with It either
directly Or Indirectly. We are quite
able of taking care of ourselves even
unto a controversy on Sabbath observance.
The adveilt of the Xmas numbers of
the English illustrated papers shows
what ends intense competition has
driven the publishers; in a few years
we may expect to see them In June,
and the midsummer numbers at Xmas,
which, by the way, would not in itself
be a bad idea, seeing that in the depths
of winter, literature about the summer
is more than ordinarily interesting,
and in the dog days of summer an
illustrated paper with snow, holly
and skating scenes would be quite refreshing���as good as the best neapol-

The cheap railway ticket spell which
the public has been enjoying for many
months is at last over; thousands have
availed themselves of the opportunity
afforded to visit friends and relatives
and the effect of those reunions of old
acquaintances and families can hardly
be over estimated; it tends to bring us
together more than ever and nowadays
there is less and less of  the  pathetic
It now transpires that a certain New
York horse doctor named Huidekoper
was appointed medical director of the
camp at Chicamauga and given charge
of the health of 35,000 men. It seems
Incredulous that a government headed
by such a patriotic man as President
McKinley could be guilty of such a
monstrous "job," but it ls ever thus In
American politics, everything has to
go where they are at stake oven unto
honor and decency.
It will be idteresting to hear what
the Spokesman-RoView has to say now
about tho much advertised overland
routo to tho northern gold fields. It is
positively criminal this booming of an
unknown trail (though advertised aB
being in existence for years) but now
described by two stirvlvors as a thousand miles of wilderness and desolation
and where un a tree can be seen tho
following grim sign post! "Half a milo
to hades, either way."
Occult science has to do with the

Its material senses, Occultism derives Its knowledge from those who,
having attainod great heights, and

world. It hit.* nothing to do wltb being ^oodj-goody, or psalm singing, as
the oxpesiUm goes. If the occultist, quote- as his authority the Bible, tt

for most assut-edly there will not be
anything like half the travel there has
been and below this would mean a falling off In receipts. It Is only fair, however, to say that where that company
is free to act oh its own account, it
seems disposed to encourage travel by
giving low rates, notably in connection
with the New Westminster exhibition.
If we at Kaslo arc asked to pay $30 return tare it is simply because we are a
competatlve poftat, whereas Calgary,
which Is a monopoly point and considerably further away, gets a $21 rate.
Such Is the way of the railroad world.

The compulsory clause of the vaccination act of England will from the
present outlook be repealed at the instance of a small but persistent majority. No better thing ever happened, as
the world has no conception of the
amount of disgusting diseases that are
being inoculated into the blood of
young children by the means of virus
taken in nine cases out of ten from
nobody knows where. There is no
doubt what seems at the surface over
abundant evidence in favor of vaccination, but there is, to say the least, an
equal amount on the other side, and to
those who entertain more advanced
Ideas on the subject of the cause of disease, the idea of inoculation Is slinplf
revolting. It ls singular that the
much talked about cure for consumption of Koch, and Pastmir'a certain
remedy for hydrophobia, have by no
means satisfied the world of their infallibility.

The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should be carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this Province:
First of those refers to the location

or not, the surveyor may adopt thc

cator is entitled to the vacant ground
that ho Liaims, even If he does not
stake it in -such a manner as to include
it all, whitn ho seldom does.
By a rocont decision of the oourts a
prospector loot a claim because of inability to securo the poBt necessary to
mark the location. The amendmont
provides that in cases where claims aro
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, lie may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an extension the posts aro
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shapo fraction between two ends of the
two claims. These fractions have often Incurred great expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the lead, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. The amended act authorizes
the surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more thah
31.05 acres', tho.'area of a full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts are together.
By failure to record assessment work
within the required period of one year,
either through oversight or the mi.-.-
understanding of partnership Interests,
valuable claims have been lost. Now,
If a prospector fails to record tbe work
within a year, he has 30 days' additional time In which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided tbat
the work is done within the year.
Another change regarding the assessment work is in tbat particular
which called for work to the amount of
$100 each year. Now, a miner can do
and record aB many assessments as  he
fileaees In a year by paying the reoord-
ng fee tor each assessment dono to the
extent of $100.
ln case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made aud signed
by an authorized provincial land surveyor with the writ.
To obtain a crown grant in 1896 it
was necessary to do assessment work to |
the amount of $500 and to have the
claim surveyed, which meant auothor |
$100. In 1897 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,1898,thc
coBt of such survey should count as
work done on the claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward tho
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. Tho last legislature oxtcitds tho
timo to May 1, 1899.
Hereafter, in adverse proceeding-> In
connection with the title to mineral
claims, before any court, each party to
the proceedings shall give aRirmative
evidence of title. Heretofore tho burden of proof was on the contestant.
The ifee for recording assessment
work has been reduced from $2.75 to
$2.50. Heretofore tho fee for recording
assessments has been 25 cents higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to be thereon, is liable to
Imprisonment for aix months or a lino
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly toward preventing the use of old posts by people
who restake a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.

ln order to facilitate tho movement

to occupy less than one hour in each

Wo need all tbo advertising matter-

that advertising is the mainstay and
profit of any new'spaper. Our old advertisers know full well how much
read and widely circulated The News

moral weekly, reaching, us it does,
���every home in the Slocan, has been a
subject of comment, not only amongst
tho general public but in journalistic
circles. Advertising in a good live
paper is always profitable. Mining
mon should support The Nows more,
for it never lets a chance pass to make
known the work dono on prospects in
this vicinity. Tho News now goes into
many mines, but we wish to aee it in
all. We regret to say that some few
of our old advertisers have shown signs
of deserting us for a time.offering as an
excuse the present dullness of trade.
It is a known fact that the greatest advertisers In the world increase their

Spain's mission: Submission.
It wasn't till Spain went to tlip wall
that It showed It read the handwriting

facts show one of two things, namely:
That Sampson did not know how to
reduce laud fortifications or that such
defenses are Impregnable to assaults
from tbe sen. lu all probability the
latter conclusion Is nearer the truth,
and. while lt will not flatter the pride
of the navy, It will give tbe people of
the coast cities of this country comfortable assurances of comparative
safety from destruction by foreign
It turned out just as we expected all
along: that sen water gold mine down

By wlmt road did the hammock come
from ordinary ships to play such a
part iu courtships?
In Dewey, Schley and Shafter the
Duited States has three ttrst-cluss battle "hlms" of tbe republic.
Already there's talk of building railroads In Cuba. How different from the
uatlve way of making tracks!
That gold-froni-tbe-sea-water scheme
further suggests Klondike iu lots of
people being left out lu the cold.
An enterprising Xew York paper has
discovered that "napkins have a history." Well, some of theiu look as If
they had.
It is rather late for Spain to grumble
about the cost of the war. She should
have thought of that liefore she touched
off the Maiue.
The ouly thing that Spain has secured
from the wur Is a complete verification
of the accuracy of General Sherman's
definition of war.
Some of the cautions ou the fortifications of Santiago were made in 1787.
And the marksmanship of the Span-
lards evidently belonged .to the same
Spain may be reduced to a fifth-rate
power, but she can always proudly
point to h tlrst-class debt. Many people depend ou their debts for their
Manding iu the world.
Hooley Introduced the pneumatic bicycle t.'re into Kngland aud made $8,-
D0O.000 out of the deal. Later, however, bis heaviest financial schemes
were deflated by attack.
A Western man set out a box of

"Take one with Phllipplua Manila
Bchleyettn Dewetta Grimes." Has the
towu no branch of the S. P. 0. A.?
If 11 is true that the Oregon made
eighteen knots iu pursuit of the Cris-.
tobal Colon when her limit is sixteen
knots, the two extra knot*} simply prove
tlint two negatives make an affirmative.
If diplomacy is the art of concealing
the truth it will MOO lie a lost art so
far aa Spain is concerned, Truth of the
quality furnished by the American
army and navy cannot be hid under a
bushel of lies.
The time must never come again
when the United States Is without modern small arms iu ample supply and
smokeless powder cartridges to match.
Past Inefficiency In the Held of preparation has beeu too terribly expensive
to make the people tolerant of any
repetition of It In the future.
The mosquito was doubtless created
for some wise end, but lt Is not easy to
tell what that end ls, unless It is to
afford the race a wholesome but painful reminder that life was not Intended
to be all n picnic. The original plans
and specifications of the mosquito Included a thirst for human blood, and
the insert is still linllt lu the old way.
The Springfield riiies carried by the
United Stales army are subjected to a
great (li*al of abuse on account of the
smoke turned loose when they are
tired. Hut smokeless powder can be
used In the cartridges of the old Spring-
fields ns well as In the Mausers and
Krag'Jorgenaena, mid now it is stated
that the War depart ment hns ordered
the use of smokeless powder In the future. The American soldiers ought to
have smokeless powder, but tbey have
demonstrated that they can win victories with the old-fnshloned kind.
Lynching Is murder, neither moro
nor less, ami the state of Texas has set
other states, both North nnd South, a
good example, by making It so upon
the statute-books. The same law also
provides that lynchers wheu put on
trial shall be tried out of the county
���where the crime was committed, and
that sheriffs who fall to protect prisoners from lynchlng-partles shall be
removed from oflice. The Southern
states are taking the lead li giving
practical effect to the disapprobation
which all law-abiding citizens i *<>i for
lyuch law.
Admiral Sampson bombarded the fortifications at Santiago for two months
and they were afterwards found to be
practically uninjured. Commodore
Schley fought Cervera's squadron for
two hours and destroyed or aunk every
one of the enemy's ships.   These two
Oue of the Spanish officers taken prisoner iu the naval buttle of Sautlugo expressed surprise ut the accuracy, rapidity and deadllness of the American gunnery. When told that it was the custom of the American navy to exercise
the crews at frequent Intervals with
battery practice the same as In war,
his response was that It must cost n
tremendous sum of money and be a
great waste of powder. Most assuredly it costs u large sum of money, but
that preliminary cost saves a still
greater one. Spain spared expense in
training her seamen to shoot, with the
result that when they were forced to
do battle they were utterly unskilled
and Incompetent, and In the end hnve
cost Spain almost a hundred times as
much as the most liberal outlay for
target practice would have amounted
to. We spared no expense for target
practl<*e, aud when lt came to hard
knocks we knew how to deliver the
blows that then cost us but little and
gave us victory. The moral of this
story lies on the surface. Which nation has wasted the most powder?
It Is not to be expected tbat the
Unltpd States wlll be able to emerge
from the war with Spain without being
made the target for demands of Indemnity from differeut governments
instigated by subjects who think they
have sustained losses for which this
country can be held responsible. When
these demands are made they wlll
doubtless receive respectful consideration and If founded upon Just cause
wlll be either adjusted by the federal
authorities or referred to some mutually acceptable referee. Yet lt is certainly premature for the German government to call upon the United States
to reimburse German Arms at Manila
who think they have been Injured by
the part played by the Dewey fleet in
the eastern waters. While the war has
doubtless entailed loss upon a great
many people the responsibility for the
war rests as much If not more upon
Spain than upon the United States.
When it comes to locating responsibility the nations of Kurope that encouraged Spain In Its foolhardy course
cannot secure a complete exoneration,
and must find themselves In peculiar
position If they attempt to press claims
for Incidental damages on behalf of
their citizens. While the people of the
United Stntes will not lie disposed to
shirk any Just obligation Incurred
through the war they wlll certainly
refuse to countenance anything that savors of trumped-up claims for Indemnity by nations uot parties to the conflict.
In 1718 nu Kiiglishnian..Ilimi's ruckle,
secured a Britimk patent for what
seems to have been an attempt at a
breach-loading, rapld-tlrlng gun. An
original feature of the Invention waa
the use of two different breech-plates,
one for s<*.ua re bulle**, to be used
against the Turks, ami the other for
round bullets to be used against Christians. It is curious to And two opposing tendencies In the same Invention:
(1) the desire to consitruct a gun that
should be more effective because mor��
destructive, and (2) a desire to recognize certain ethk-al dlatlnctlons In IH
use. If a round bullet was too good
for a Turk, a square one was too bad
for a Christian. Those two tendencies,
one operating to make wnr more destructive and the other to mitigate Its
harshness, nre struggling for pre eminence to-day rs they have been for centuries. War is an evidence of the Imperfection of modern civilization. But
If we seek proof of the development of
the humane sentiment, nnd of the extension of the sphere of ethics to unethical relations, we mny And it lu the
arts of war ns surely as iu the arts of
peace. The Introduction of uow and
powerful explosives nnd of guns of
enormous power nnd range, the npplt-
catlon of electricity to submarine
mines, the construction of modem battle-ships and torpedo-lxmts, the Improvements ln lung range rifles nud rnpld-tlrlng guns, nnd ninny other Inventions, Invest the whole enginery otf war
to-day with a terrible destructiveness.
The serious student of ethics, not to
speak of tlie cynic, mny weil ask
whether the development of philanthropy, in mitigating the hardships of
war, has kept pace wltb these destructive tendencies, and whether ethics
might not be better employed ln discouraging such Inventions than in palliating their effects. But, without speculating on our distance from the millennium, lt Ls a fact that the sense
of obligation between nations and thc
recognition of duties to civilization and
humanity have nude such progress
that war cannot wholly abrogate them.

The fascinating study of financial
gain amounts almost to genius in some.
Avarice was the Inspiration of one of
our own grent men, Franklin, whose
memory is debased by his reputation as
"Poor Richard." The masterpiece of
Balzac Is bis novel, "Eugenie Graiuiet;"
the hero, old Grundet. Is a miser whose
liiiiiuclal genius amounts to the sublime
and which Itnlziu- contrives and succeeds in making almost picturesque.
Among the most distinguished misers
was Daniel Dancer. Upon the death of
bis father, Daniel Dancer enme Into the
estate, which yielded n good Income.
One of bis sisters lived with him and
Imbibed the miserly teachings. Dancer
was remarkable for the style of his garments; his coat was made of pieces of
every hue and texture, collected from
the streets and nsh heaps. His garments were hold together by a twist of
bay. He and his sister lived happily ln
a hovel, the paueless sashes of which
were darkened with boards, rags and
papers. Soap and towels being expensive, Mr. Dancer occasionally washed
In a pond and dried himself with sand.
Three pounds of coarse beef and fourteen dumplings formed their menu for
years, except upon one occasion, when
Providence changed the course of these
Mr. Dancer, walklngone day ln search
of bones and other delicate offal, found
a dead sheep and carried lt home In triumph. His sister received It as an Immediate gift from heaven. Time went
on and the maiden fell 111. Lady Temple, a generous neighbor, was so kind
that Miss Dancer determined to leave
her ��2,000, but she died before the will
could be signed, nnd her brother claimed her fortune as the price of her board
for thirty years.
He constantly guarded against thieves,
and concealed his gold and bank notes
with the spiders among their cobwebs
In the cow-house and In the holes In the
chimney, covering them with ashes.
The light of generosity, however, penetrated one chink of his miserable soul-
he loved his dog, and, while denying
himself brend, he allowed his dog a pint
of milk dally, with other delicacies. Mr.
Dancer's delight In life was to visit the
holes where his wealth was kept and
count lt.
In his 78th year Dancer became violently 111, but refused to see a physician.
Again Lady Temple played the good
fairy at the wretched hovel, attending
him to the Inst, and wns generously rewarded by his Immense fortune, which
he left to her.
It would not be a difficult task to
show the Influence of avarice upon nations; the evils of society, the corruptions of religion nnd the tragedies of

That the tond is beneficial to the farmer nnd particularly to the gardener is
admitted by every one who has observed
its habits. Additional facts have been
secured by the recent observations at the
Massachusetts experiment station whicli
show that 11 per cent of the toad's food
is comuosed of insects and spiders beneficial or indirectly helpful to man. Tho
tond feeds on worms, snails, sow bugs,
common greenhouse pests, nml the many
legged worms whicli damnge greenhouse
and garden plots. It feeds to some extent on grasshoppers null crickets, nnd
destroys large numbers of nnts. It consumes a considerable number of May beetles, rose-chasers, click beetles or adults
of the wireworm, potato beetles nnd cucumber beetles, lt is a prime destroyer
of cutworms nnd nrmy worms.
To all agriculturists the tond renders
conspicuous service, but the gardeners
and greenhouse owners may make this
animal of especial value. Every gardener
should aim to keep a colony of toads
among his growing crops, and the practice of collecting and transferring them
to the gardens is a commendable one.
While the sense of locality is strong in
the toad, and it will often return over
considerable distances to its original
haunts, yet it may be induced to remain
in new quarters if there is a Sufficient
food supply. Many farmers supply toads
with artificial shelter, made by digging
shallow holes in the ground and partially covering them with a bit of board or
flat stones. In such places toads will often remain for many days, sallying forth
at night to seek food.

Why "Grey" Hound?
Up to nbout 300 years ngo "greyhounds" were the sliaggv, gray-eolored
dogs used In the chase of lnrge giime.
After that the name was transferred,
Kiilticiently absurdly, to the blnck,
white, blue, nud yellow, but generally
spotted or bl-colored nnd never gray,
dog that is uow so popular for coursing hares,. It is very odd that no one
writing ii bout the dog should have Insisted upon so obvious an absurdity.
Ou the contrary, a great many writers
who have written very wisely about
the word "grey," have tried to explain
away Its simplest meaning by referring
to Celtic, Gaelic, aud Saxon roots; but
considering these two animals were
called Indifferently grey "dogs" or
grey "hounds"���in two words���when
our language first came to be written,
and that ln those days "dog" and
"hound" were absolptely synonymous,
It seems to mc as a great waste of wisdom to try and prove that "graie,"
"gray," or "grey," when It Is joined
with dog or hound, meant anything
else but grey, as to say that greyfly
means a fly of princely extraction or
grey-beard a champion beard.
If I were quarrelsome. I should like
to pretend that greyhound really means
"badger-dog." At any rate, I should
have sense of language ou my side (for
gray, grey, grale, or grel, sre all names
for the gray badger), and I would not
be more absurd than the rest.���Good

" I never can find words with which
to thank you for what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has done
for me.
" Some years ago I had womb trouble
and doctored for a long time, not seeing* any improvement. At times I
would feel well enough, and other
times was miserable. So it went on
until last October, I felt something;
terrible creeping over me, I knew not
what, but kept getting worse. I can
hardly explain my feelings at that
time. I was so depressed in spirits
that I did not wish to live, although I
had everything to live for. Had hysteria, was very nervous; could not
sleep and was not safe to be left
" Indeed, I thought I would lose my
mind.   No one knows what I endured.
" 1 continued this way until the last
of February, when I saw in a paper a
testimonial of a lady whose case waa
similar to mine, and who had been
eured by Lydia E. I'inkham's Vegetable Compound. I determined to try it,
and felt better after the first dose. I
continued taking it, and to-day am a
well woman, and can say from my
heart, 'Thank God for such a medicine. ���������
