and a "Committee un Naturalization."
I Insisted from the beginning thut we
must havo an organization as perfect
as ihat ut' any political machine. Until wo felt uur Btrongth u little, how-

many times have you told me that if
ymi had yuur life to live over again
yuu wouldn't spend one cent over the
lirst salary yon received, if It was only
three dollars a week, until you had u

"l know thiit." 1 said. "But when

It scums strange to me that men will
go to Alaska and contentedly freeze
and dig all day In a mine—not of their
own, but for wages—and not feel so
greatly abused or unhappy; that they
will swing an axe all day In a forest

which perhaps for some reason would
nut ordinarily receive her; here lhe
men in court sent thoir friends fur bail;
here came those with bigger plans
afoot in the matter uf special contracts, if Sweeney couldn't get them

thom away with a feeling uf deep obligation lo him. Naturally, then, when
election time came around these people obeyed Sweeney's order, It wasn't reasonable to suppose that it campaign speech ui* twu could affect their
of course tlie rival party followed
much th.* same methods, but the man
in power had tremendous advantage,
The only danger he needed to fear
wus a split In his own faction as some
young man loomed up with ambitions
that moved faster than Sweeney's own
for him. Such n man 1 began to
suspect- though it was looking a long
way intu the future- -was Rafferty,
That winter he took out his naturalization papers and soon afterwards he

was tu make a list of all the young
voters and keep as closely in touch as
possible with the political gossip of
huih parih-s. Over him there was to
be ;i  street  captain  nnd  over  him a
district euptttln and Dually a president.
All this was tin- result uf slow iind

here fell In with the plan eagerly and
one of them agreed tu pay the expenses  of ii   ball   any   time   wc   wished   tu

tu be just another fanciful civic

In the meanwhile Han made no open
break with Sweeney hut It soon he-
mine clear  llmt   In- wns  not in such
k i favor as before.     Although we
had nm yei openly endorsed his candidacy wc were doing a good deal of

The mnnoeuvre, now tho passenger

colled the "ocean wave." Putting on
uu appearance of masterly calmness,
the passenger looked at the aviator.
Incidentally he noted that all the paint
had been worn off where his hand
grasped the stout wooden brace. Someltieth
grip. lie did not seem alarmed. Levers in hand ho was slanting slowly
toward the earth, a soggy, sedgy
stretch of swamp along tlie river witli
Just a fringe of hard ground close to
the bunk of the stream.
But the ground came nearer and
nearer, and lt became apparent that
a landing would be made, By this
time the machine was within thirty
feet of the ground and bended at such
;i long slant that it was certain there
would be tiu "hitting" the ground. Not
knowing anything was wrong and seeing no reason lo be scared, the passenger did not grab the stanchion again.

Physicians Recommend Castoria
P^ASTOEIA lias met witli pronouncod favor on the part of physicians, pharma-
^-' ceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians with
results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the
result of three facts: First—The indisputable evidence that it is harmless:
Second—That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimilates the food: Third—It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oil.
It is absolutely safe. It docs not contain any Opium, Morphino, or other narcotic
and does not stupefy. It i3 unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman_ Drops, Godfrey's
Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how-
over, is to expose danger and record tho means of advancing health, The day
for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end, To
our knowledge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composuro and health, by
regulating tho system—not by stupefying it—and our readers are entitled to
the information.—Hall's Journal of Health

Dr "Wm. J. MoCrann, ot Omaha, Neb., says: "As the father of thirteen
children I certainly know something about your great medicine, and asi.!'?
from my own family experience I havo ln my years of practice found Castoria a popular and efficient remedy ln almost every nome."
Dr. J. It. Clausen, of Philadelphia, Pa., says: "The name that your Castoria has mado for itself In tho tens of thousands cf homes blessed Dy the
presenco of children, scarcely needs to be supplemented by the endorsement of the medical profession, but 1, for one, most heartily endorse tt and
believe It an excellent remedy."
Dr. It. M, Ward, of Kansas City, Mo., says: "Physicians generally do not
prescribe proprietary preparations, but ln the case of Castoria my experience, like that of many other physicians, has taught me to make an exception. I prescribe your Castoria in my practice because I have found it
to be a thoroughly reliable remedy for children's complaints. Any physician who has raised a family, as 1 have, will join me in heartiest recommendation of Castoria."

The passage way now granted thc
citizens of Chilliwaek by a generous
postal department reminds us of
i lie Hood ut tbe time of Noah. The
animals go in two by two, if they
nre not over average size, nnd all going in the snmedircctioii, the average
man does a sort of checker movement
to escape collisions and landscape
millinery, The department allowed un enclosed passage three feet
wide, but thc contractor added an-
other foot to tho munificont(?) proportions designated by the postttl
IH-ople, However we muy Ik- thankful thut we do not have to gain
act-ess to the post oiliee from the
lane at the rear or through the
basement (?) !
The results obtained under the new
system are brighter, clenncr und
neater streets, which in turn develop u civic pride and interest
among citizens which spells success,
If Chilliwuek citizens want to see

IF It Is really true (as that excellent
1)It-kenslan, George Glsslng, always
maintained) that women have
never been among the most enthusiastic uf Dickens' admirers, the reason
may perhaps be found in the very
simple fact that Dickens himself was
no very sincere or sympathetic admirer
of women. With the intuitive instinct
of her sex, a woman knows soon enough when a mnn is in love with her,
and she knows equally surely when he
is unly sininlating love; ymi cannot
deceive a woman about the one great
business of her life, Now, DieUens HUs | splcuously as tli

actively "on the rampage," she was
ominously, menacingly sulky.
One wonders whether Mrs. Gamp
treated her spouse so badly—probably
not, for there is a certain coarse geniality about Mrs. Gamp which must
have made her jl moderately amenable,
although a sluttish and alcoholic kind
of wife. Of all Dickens' studies of

tv ai a rule frivolous. There |s, however, reason tn believe thai an attempt
mains a mystery. Another is that uf
the death uf Glnvanni Borgia, Duke of
Gaudia, Gonfalonier of the Vatican.
I.ike all mysteries, the crime was laid
at Cesure's door. Having slain his
brother-in-law it was only natural,
said public opinion, ihat his brother
would be the next, and for the same
reason. Cesare and Lucrezla were inseparable, so Giovanni must have made
a third, when two are company. True,
lt wns not an ngo wherein life wus
sacred. But I will quote two instances
which suggest that Cesure's Instincts
were generous and brave, even when
they were: barbarous. Cesare laid siege
to Forll, and took prisoner th.* very
woman who, it was alleged, had tried
to poison his father by means of tlie
Infectious  letter:
Cesare received and treated her with
ihe groat est courtesy, ami, seeing her
for the moment destitute, he presented
her with a purse containing two hundred ducals fm* inr immediate needs.
Under liis escort she loft the castle,
and was conducted, wllh her few remaining servants, to the Nomaglie
Palace to remuln In Lho Duke's carej

ami spent his life can be read at leisure
in ihis Interesting book. But one cannot help quoting an Instance nf how
(his scion of (he Hull, true to his crest,
entered the llsls as a matador:
on Juno -Ith. at a bull-tight held In
Rome-—the Spanish lauroinachia having been Inl induced from Naples,
where It flourished under Hie Aragou
dominion—he went down into the
arena, and nn horseback, armed only
with a light lance, he killed live wild
bulls. But the master-stroke he reserved fur the end. Dismuunting, and
taking n double-handed sword to Hie
sixth bull that was loosed against him.
he beheaded lhe great beast at one
single stroke, "a feat which all Home
considered great."
This act seems more in keeping with
Cesure's character than does the series
of  stealthy
crimes     that   corrode   his
The true Maori lives in his curiously-carved and painted hut, but even
the older mon are led al times In join
in the life upon a sheep-run. Taraka
was une uf these, and had in his mental
outlook a curious blend nf uld and now.
There were occasions, it is true, when
the tranquility of Taraka's life were
rudely broken into. Tho week that
immediately preceded a rnee meeting
in the neighborhood wus Invariably
characterized by an absent-minded attention to the sweet potato plot, and
by it slender catch of eels altogether
unworthy of his prowess its a fisherman, lt was a week of strange dreams,
moreover, that succeeded ouch other
with ji surprising regularity. It was
remarkable, tuo, that the significance
of each grew more emphatic as the
period of the races drew nearer. When
Taraka approached of a morning, the
glow of mysterious excitement in his
eyes, it might be taken for granted that
he had had a dream. In his sleep, perhaps, he had seen a grey hen swallowing some wonderful grain, the like of
which he hnd never seen in his waking
moments, since it was uf till colors.
Now a grey horse was entered to run
in tin* first race on Tuesday, and the
rest of the Held were of nil colors.
What greater proof of thc coming result could thero he than this vision?
The money must go un the grey! Further revelations, dealing with the remaining races were wont In follow.
Dream objects, from a bush owl to u
turnip-top. were hauled remorselessly
forth from their slumberous region lu
serve in  lhe practical  light of day as
material guides and portents towards
the "spotting nf a winner."
Appuritluns there nre in plenty, and,
as the Mauri will tell ynu, they haunt
both the gloom of the bush and the
still inland waters. On the eve nf the
great eruption uf 1886, Sophia, the
Maori guide, saw a phantom war-canoe
wltb Its ghostly crew steal silently
across the waters of Lake Tarawera
by night. Then there Is tin- charmed
island of Mokula. that earthly gem set
in the midst of Lake Rotoruo, where
tlie shades of the famous Hlneuma and
her lover, Tutanekal, may occasionally
be   seen.     In   Maori   legend   pure  and
simple it  is the wizard who plays the
greatost part—the wizard who accomplishes marvels, especially of the physical order.   Magicians such as these It

Bnrgla'i fnt hor which is so diabolical fact, though superhuman deeds, dn

Mauris. Marvellous it is, too, how this
atmosphere of the magical end of the
supernatural has blended itself with
that of the up-to-date colonial town—
the bush township, wllh its telephones,
its freezing works, and its butter factories. To peruse a local paper and

The Maori is a sportsman, but does
nut take kindly to the restriction and
routine of regular civfllzatioii. He can
accept the rules uf the game, but life
must nut become tou like work. The
necessary interference with his personal convenience that the life entails is,
io his" mind, oui uf proportion to the
emoluments received in exchange,    if
