Two Transcontinental Railways, the Provincial Government and the
City of Kamloops are spending from $2,000,000 to $8,500,000 in and
around Kamloops this summer.
Great Transcontinental Railways like the C.KIi. nnd the C.N.R. know what thoy ure doing. The C.P.R. purchased 1250,000,00 worth ot property, to
enlarge ils simps, yards, and round houses at Kamloops.
They realise thnt Kamloops is to he the logical and .ureal divisional point between the two great Western Cities -Calgary and Vancouver, situuted as

Why are lhe C.N.R. rushing their line down the North branch of the Thompson River and building a bridge costing 8260,000.00 over ihe Thompson
ftivor, to gel a site on the water front of the City of Kamloops?
II. in reasonable to come to the one natural conclusion—Kamloops with its presout population of 4,500 lo 5,000 people will double its population Within

Speech  by A. S. Goodeve
Addresses Largely Attended Meeting at
Brockville—Baneful Effect of
At ii largoly attended meeting held
at Brock villi; recently a MtsuiiitH.ii
was passed condemning tlie reciprocity agreement ns a serious menace to
the best interests of Canada and the
British empire. The resolution waa
unanimously adopted after listening
to addresses by three aide iteutenauts
ol R. L. Borden, the opposition leader at Ottawa, Richard Blum, M. p,
for I'eol; A. S. Goodeve, M. P. for
Kootenay; and Dr. Rold, M. P. for
Grenville. A few words were also agricultural
added by A. B. Donovan, M.P.P. and! provinces of
mountains with a score of beautiful
lakes and mighty rivers and waterfalls nave an unlimited supply of
electricity. A rich mineral soil tilled their valleys. Their slopes are
covered with the largest and most
com pact area of merchantable tim
ber on this continent. Her fisheries
account for -it per cent uf the total
value of the fisheries of Canada and
today she furnishes a home market
tor over |14,uui),i)00 of dairy aud
products for the other
anada "in addition    to
John Webster.
Referring to Mr. Qoodove's speech
the Brockvllle Times says "The
peroration of Mr. Goodeve was a
particularly splendid effort when In-
pleaded for a strengthening uf the
ties that binds Canada to the moth
er country, rather than to allow ourselves to drift away which will ultimately follow the operation of the
reciprocity pact."
Mr. Goodeve, M. P, for Koutenay,
B. C, followed in a rousing speech.
This is Mr. Goodeve's first term in
the Canadian parliament where he is
making his mark as a strong deba-
tur.. Previously he had a long association with provincial politics in
British Culumbia and had the honor
of being provincial secretary In the
first Conservative government of that
province. He dealt with reciprocity
in a masterly way, not in a party
sense, but rather from a broad, national standpoint, showing how it
will affect Canada as a whole. He
traced in au interesting way tbe his-
what she herself raises. Mr. Goodeve declared that reciprocity would
ruin tllis market for the rest of Canada by United States competition,
besides killing its natural development. The speaker traced the history of the National policy and its
beneficial effects upon Canadian trade
and commerce. He noted the failure
of the reciprocity cry uf the Liberals
in the election of '91, when once'more
the policy of progress and nationalism triumphed. Today iu 1-11, Canada once more comes to tbe parting
of the ways. From the tone of
American newspapers and the speeches of their public men there can be
only oue meaning from their standpoint, viz., tbc complete commercial
ami political union of Canada and
the United States.
Mr. Goodeve reverted for a few
moments to some of the arguments
that have been advanced by tbe government ou behalf of this remarkable, unexpected and almost complete
reversal uf the tlscal policy of Canada.     There     was no general demand
tory of Britisti Canada from the I for this change. It wus true that
landing of Champlaln in Hiiiu up to lowing to our vast and ever growing
confederation in 1867, dividing it in- trade, particularly in western Oana-
to four periods: (I) from IG08 to I da, there developed certain ditticul-
1760, French rule; (2) from 1760 to ties and abuses in connection with
1791, when representative and leglsla- the bundling uf that trade, particu-
tivo institutions were established; (3) Marly with regard to the grain and
from 1791 to 1840 when these institu-j cattle nnd meat, hut if proper action
tions slowly developed into responsible local self governments; (4) from
1840 to 1867 when representative government was fully established and
federal union finally accomplished the
natural result of the extended liberties of the people. Mr. Goodeve
took for his text a quotation from
the speech of President Tuft, delivered in placing the bill of reciprocity
before congress, in which he said
Canada had reached "the parting of
the ways." Continuing Uie president
said: "Tbey (Canadians) must soon
decide whether they are to regard
themselves as isolated permanently
from our market by a perpet.ua! wall
or whether we are to be commercial
friends." This was not tbe first, time,
Stated Mr. Goodeve that Canada has
come to the parting of the ways. In
the long tussle for confederation
there were men then as now, not
having thc broad grasp or national
spirit who preferred to trade locally!
with the United States. Some fav- ■
orcd annexation or commercial union!
but   the broader   minds   triumphed.
bad be_n taken when the matter was
brought to the attention of the government by tbe enactment of strict
regulations, rigidly enforced, in regard to grain elevators and tbe es
tabliahment of public abbatoire or iu
the on coil rage meut of private abbat-
olrs under government inspection
with au extension of refrigerator and
cold storage service, these abuses
might Imve been remedied.' Sir Wilfrid declared tu several delegations
who interviewed him during his west
cm trip thut there would be no alteration In the tarif! until ufter the
appointment of au expert commission
to make a thorough enquiry and the
hearing of all interests to be affected.
Mr. Goodeve carefully analyzed reci-
pi'oclty, showing its baneful eflect
upon the fruit industry uf British
Columbia and tbe grave possibilities
of materially lessening the price uf
Manitoba wheat. The value of the
Ilritish Columbia fruit crop lu 1.10
was $2,500,000. The imports of
nursery stock was a,770,470 trees and

destiny of Canada as a nation; the

the matter of protection to raw materials. He held that the American

The gripping qualities, of this
story reveal a gifted French author in hts best vein. While it
is a detective story ranking with
the Sherlock Holmes series, revealing further adventures of
Rouletabtlle. the sensational solver of mysteries, the narrative
also presents several character
studies of engrossing interest
-Rouleiabille, the bewildering
hero of "The Mystery of the Yel-
Ion Room, " who is here confronted by the nerve racking mystery
of "the body too many,'" Larson, the fugitive from justice
and master mind of the polished
criminals of two hemispheres,
who reveals himself only when
he wishes ta show where he is
not. and thc Lady in Black,
whose inspiring faith is unshaken by the unspeakable tragedies in which she is the central
figure. The dreadful power for
evil that can be exerted by a
perverted brain has never been
more clearly portrayed. The
heartbreaking test of the unfortunate son who realises that he
must kill his father, who has
never known his son, to save his
mother, whom he might never see
again, is a vivid portrayal of
some of the penalties of human

Mr. Currelly,  who, by the way. haa
I only   recently  come   to  Toronto   trom
Umdou  to take  up   his   permanent
residence, is to be found suiH.Tin.eiid-

nnd medium height, he has the cultured speech and the conversational
•barm of one who has long heen as-
ioolated with men of intellect and
irtistic ability. Added to this is a
lotlceable enthusiasm tor his work,
j .vhich betrays itself in thc earnestness
vfth which he speaks ot his plans.
Ami now to trace out the curious
-itain of incidents which have been
instrumental In bringing him to his
ireseut enviable position. Born at
ICxeter, Ontario, in 18"_, ol a family
•.hich can trace its descent back to
i refugee Lombard lumily Irom north-
' rn Italy, he inherited an artistic
temperament, wlileli will account in
gome degree for his subsequent career. He was entered at Victoria
University in 1S!M, and, strangely
•nough, took up the natural science
■ourse of the University of Toronto,
tuijying under Professors Ramsay
Vright and Coleman. Following
'raduation in 1898 he undertook lay
missionary work in the Dauphin district of  Manitoba  on  behu'f ol  the
lethodlst Church, but, realizing the
imitations of his training and his
lack ol reading, h_ returned to Victoria at the end of two years and entered upon the study of philosophy,
l>olitical science, Greek and H -brew.
In this work he was brought into
close touch with Prof. Mavor, who
suggested thut he should go to France,
aud, to secure his doctors degree, investigate how much the conflict of thc
force, ol the Church and Socialism
was influencing the working clashes.
With the object in vie* of becoming
for thc purpose n journeyman wood*
•arver, he set out for tlie continent.
Up to this point nothing out of the
ordinary had happened. He reached
London, where he purposed staying
for a week and discussing his work
with Prince Kropotkin, whom lie had
known for some time. One day he
chanced tc notice in the window of a
London shop a little Egyptian figure.
He knew something about the subject
■f Egyptian antiquities, having heen
interested in a collection of curios
Wliich Mr. Wulter Massey had once
brought back to Toronto, and, deeming the image valuable, he purchased
it and put it in his pock.t. A little
later he was wandering through the
Ilritish Museum and quite accidentally became engaged in conversation
with an old gentleman. Drnwing his
handkerchief Irom his pocket, the
image rolled out. The old gentleman,
to whom he thereupon snowed it,
was much interested, nnd they began
to talk about Egypt. To this chance
conversation Mr. Currelly owed the
introduction he then received to the
great Egyptologist, Prof. Flinders
Petrie. The old gentleman was a controlling force in the Egypt Exploration Fund, of which Petrie was the
active head. In half an hour from
the time he met Petrie he was offered
tho position ol thc explorer's assistant. Prince Kropotkin, with whom he
discussed the proposal, advised him tu
accept it, and in this way his caracr
as au nrchaeologist began.
As an archaeologist Mr. Currelly
has had a distinguished career. He
was personally responsible (or severa'
ol the more important discoveries nf
recent years.

Countering the Counting Man In Distant Landa.
Kveu .n the twentieth century, and
iu enlightened Knglaud, tlie censua
men will no doubt have some tunny
Stories to tell. of..ignorance and prejudice. But certainly none of their
experiences wid compare with those
of the officials iu the more dis:ant
parts of our  Kmpire.
In reuioti parts of India, particularly, there have been some farcical attempts to evade beiug "oensused"—■
attempts which, but tor the good
sense ot the officials, might well have
ended iu anything but a iiappy wuy.
At one of the earliest census's,
while tlie preliminary counting was
proceeding, shout a month before the
final examination, a number of remote jungle tribes took some sudden
uud mysterious objection to tlie census; and eventually, without any
warning, the whole community lied
into the jungle.
Hut ttie counter was a hard-headed
Knglishman, and he hunted out the
headman, and asked him what al! the
fuss wns about. In reply, he was solemnly told that the tribe was afraid
thnt thc counting was but a preliminary to tile branding of every member
of the community, in order that the
men might be scut to bo carriers iu
the next war, and tlie women deported
to pick tea iii Assam.
The official listened attentively until tlie chid hud finished. Then he
said that that was not the idea at all.
Whut he wus really doing was Huding
out how many people would want rice
in lhe next famine, and that lor thoae
vho were not counted no rice would
be forthcoming.
Every member ot that tribe came
back within a week.
In another district, but many miles
away, the same rumor obtained credence.
The census man here waa an Irishman, and he had an Irish way of
dealing with the difficulty. He got
in the headmen, gave them plenty of
whisky, and led them on by easy
stages to ask why they were beiug
counted. Then he related, with any
amount of artistic verisimilitude, how,
some months before, the Queen of
England had been dining with the
Kmperor of Russia.
"And," he continued, "you know,
when they had eaten thirty-two different sorts of curry, and were smoking
their hookahs together, they fell to
disputing who had the most subjects.
"Finally, they made a big bet about
it, and ordered a census to settle the
Set. Now," concluded the Irishman,
"if you stay in the jungle, and won't
be counted, the Queen will lose her
bet, and your lives will be blackened
ior ever."
And he won his point.

The celebrated Beau Bruinmel during the flrst years of his exile, while
yet his fame as a dandy was preeminent, had the ceiling ot hia bedroom covered with mirrors so that
even while at rest he could study
elegance and assume a graceful pose.
For such a purpose a glass ceiling is,
however, not unique, and the notorious Duchess of Cleveland had such
another constructed to gratify her
vanity, rrr a far different reason

last century had his ceiling paneled

The Bill el Rights.
The bill ot rights in English history is the declaration made by the
Lords and Commons to the Prince
and Princess of Orange on Feb. 13,
1669, in an act setting forth "the
rights and liberties of the subject,
and settling the succession of the
crown." The bill is virtually the be-
ginuing of free government in England. Never since it passed the Parliament has British -ing dared to
interfere with the fundamental rights
of the British people. The bill ol
rights, while not original—the most
of its principles being a repetition
of those laid down in Magna Charta
—is justly looked upon aa the foundation of English freedom.—New York

carried on one occasion on a sort of
improvised Bed in chair, with muskets
for the framework and Egyptian
Boldiers for hearers. "I hope your

Duchess, pleasantly, to the native
officer in command. "Indeed, no,
gracious madam," was the prompt
reply; "you are no heavier than the
gun they are accustomed to carry."

Kate Langdon was a character. Not
especially pretty, ahe bad a way with
ber tbat flrst attracted people', attention, tbeu won them. Some said she
was very deep, others tbut she was a
simple child- of nature. She was certainly reckless. She would dirt with
several meu at a time without heeding
tbe consequences aud wbeu coruered
would, if possible, dodge them ull by
flight, leaving them to settle the matter among themselves,
Aud so It was that some blamed her.
Others defended her, but all were
amused by ber. lt was very interest-
lug to see a middy come upon tbe
edge of the vortex, get drawn iu, drop
out, givlug place perhaps to u fellow
middy, perhaps to an officer. Whether
the girl realised tbe wrong ahe wus often doing, whether she was uucou-
.clous of lt or whether she had uo up-
preclatlou of tbe tenderness of men's
hearts, certain It Is thut she never seemed either ashamed uf her couquests or
proud of them. Indeed, she gure every
evidence that she regretted tbeiu.
A flue field for such girls is either the
West Point or Annapolis ucudemy,
where young meu ure trained for the
army or navy. Kate Langdou tbe year
of the breaking out of tbe Spanish
American war visited tbe Naval academy as the guest of ber aunt. Mrs.
Lyall, tbe wife of one of the professors.
She hadn't been there u week before

Hector Peckham uud Leslie Holt Both
met Kate Langdou, and both fell violently ln love with ber. In the government academies the standard of houor
is very high. Neither of tbe cadets
would take tbe slightest advantage of
the other, but neither could find out
which was really thc favored oue. Nor
were they ever sure but that one of
several other cadets might uot after
all carry off the prize.
Peckham finally won. Kate gave
him her heart und. to the surprise of
every one, gave him the whole of It
There were a number of disappointments ln consequence of this victory,
the most serious of which was Leslie
Holt Kate hud glveu bim a great
deal of encouragement aud for so_ue
time after she came to a decision
hadn't the heart to break with bim.
When It finally came out that Peckham had won, Holt went to see her to
tsk If the news were true. She confessed, and he told her that ahe had
Wrecked bis life.
Young meu bave said this before to
young women, to marry some other
and live happily. Some have remain-
ed single, cherishing their idol In their
hearts, to meet that Idol when last
middle age and find It demolished
Holt so long as he lived—he did not
live long—never recovered from his Infatuation. The words he used at his
last meeting with Kate Langdou made
the first change hi her. By tbem her
light gladsome nature received tts
flrst sobering.
Meanwhile the Cuban war was coming on, and ships and munitions were
being hurriedly put lu condition for
war. And the cadets, too, were being
hurried on In their academic course,
to be graduated as soon as hostilities
The following spring Peckham and
Holt were graduated und assigned to
a war vessel sailing for Cuba. Peck*
ham and Kate were married before be
sailed. Tbe wedding was notable
from the number of disappointed
young men ln attendauce. But every
man of them swore by the bride and
considered tbe groom the luckiest man
that bad ever wooed woman.
Kate, having joined the navy matrimonially, felt at home at a naval station, and her auut, who adored her.
invited her to remain with her Indefinitely. So Kate stayed where she
would be ln touch with her husband
far more than at borne. That was uit
exciting summer. First came news of
the fight In Manila buy, tin:; the cn
trance of the Spanish Admiral Cervr-
rn's fleet Into Cuban waters. Its attempt to escape and Its destruction.
Peckham and Holt weut through
this last fight, and when It wai over
the latter officer wns ordered to tbe
command of a small supply bout and
directed to sail for the Brooklyn navy
"Can 1 do anything for you at-
home?" he asked of Peckhum,
"Nothing, unless  you  wlll  take a
letter for my'wife.    Ynu can mall It
as soon as you get to Brooklyn."
"With pleasure." replied Holt
Peckham wrote a short not* to his
wife and gave It to Holt.
"The trap I'm to command Is not
very seaworthy," said tbe latter. "If
! meet a big blow I mny not get
through. But I promise you. Hector,
that your wife shnll have tho letter.**
Peckham hoped that his friend
would get through safely, nnd thoy
One morning young Mrs. Peckham

bad suffered nothing in the recent engagement and Imped lie ft.ro many

the man'she loved, ahe turned to ita

Thinking that what had passed between them before her marriage bad
led him to po away without even having been i hanked, she tossed the letter on a table und ntn out Inro tbe
hall to stop him. Not finding him in
the ball, she went out on to tbe jmn-h.
He was not there, nor wus be anywhere to be seen, though there was
nothing for some distance to obstruct

It was the letter, which hud been dis

surprise to find a seaweed.
There wus something so uncanny lu
I .-ill this thut she was uow thoroughly
j frightened Dropping the seaweed,
she put both hands to her temples In
an effort to retrain her equanimity.
Then, rushlug out or the room, she ran
Into her uuut uud sunk in a swoon.
Ten minutes later l>r Coggswetl,
medical officer nt the academy, wus
called to Professor Lyall's quarters. He
found Mrs. Peckhum tying on a bed In
a high state of nervous excitement
Mrs. Lyall told tlie doctor, before he
saw the patient, Ihe story her niece
bud told her, and he did not permit the
Invalid to go over It again. He said
that the expectation for a long while
thnt her husband would tit any time
participate In a naval engagement and
tbe excitement attending the recent
tight had lieen a strain upon her nerves
that had produced hallucination. He
prescribed a sedative and left directions that she wus to he kept quiet.
But Mrs. Peckham did uot recover
from the strain as soon as was expected. And one morning something occurred to give her a terrible back set.
A telegram from Key West appeared
In a moi-ulug paper stating thut n tittle
nnval tender, commanded by Leslie
Holt, bad been wrecked ou one of the
keys nnd all ou board hud been lost.
Mrs. Lyull kept this news from ber
niece us long as she dared, hoping the
Invalid would gulu strength uud there
would be less danger In commuulcut
lug It to her. Finally, fearing tbat
Kate might hear it from others, she
told ber of young Holt's death.
If anything was needed to complete
tbe conviction that the wraith of the
man who hnd told her she hud wrecked
his life hud visited her. the announcement of his death supplied It. A subsequent letter, however, from Peckham
served to lighten the blow. Kate felt
tbat the mutter had uo reference to
her husband; It was between her and
Leslie Holt. I*lie considered It n punishment for having trifled with him
uud brooded nnd brooded, und nil et-
-. forts on the part of her friends to cou-
! vlnce her thnt there was nothing In It
except n creation of her own bruin under a nervous strain were fruitless.
lu time Peckhum cutue uorth, and lt
wns hoped that his presence would lift
the cloud thnt hung over his wife. It
helped her. but did uot cure her. She
weut ubout us her ore. but how changed! "What a snd sight Is Mrs Peek-
ham." said one of the men with whom
she had trifled—one of the older ones,
nn officer. The mutter proves tbe Innocence of her action when no many
of us were attentive to her. Wicked
people ure not remorseful. The tender
consciences are usually to be found In
Innocence. Had she been n heartless,
a wicked flirt, the fact thut she bad
wrecked i man's life would hnve pleased her. lustei'd of this, his telling her
thut she b.id wrecked his life wrecked
hers. He should nol have said such
a thing to her. uud he would not bave
said It had he been older and realised
the effect It would hnve on her.
It Is ii decade since this shock came
to Mrs. Peckham, and, although It bas
somewhat worn away, It haa left Ita
effects. She Is still tieloved, for at
heart she Is the same Innocent woman, though very different from the
days of h t girlhood. Kvery one except herself refers the visit of the
wraith to n shock coming from overstrained nerves. She would as soon
doubt her existence us doubt tbe reality of the visit. After sufficiently re
covering to talk about It she declared
that she uot only smelted the stilt air of
the sen, but mr Leslie Holt standing
before her—not lifelike. It Is true, be

She lends the way to thc shore and
crosses the low wooded ridge that
intervenes between the oast nnd the
west sides of the Point, a distance
of not more than 30 rods. Here n
broad expanse of silvery sand fifty
yards wide stretches along the shore
as far as the eye can reach. The fierce
winds blowing across the open lake
have smoothed these drifting sands
and made a record sheet on which
are mapped uut the movements of
hundreds of nocturnal animals.
The aged woman points out the
various tracks ns she searches with
Iter dogs. "Here is a fresh rat track,"
she cries, calling eagerly to her dogs
The spaniels are soon in full pursuit,
running silently nose to the ground.
"That's all I have to do with it,"
says the huntress, seating herself beside a big fishing bont upturned on
the beach. The dogs are soon lost to
view in the thickets beyond the sun 1
strip. Then there is a short, sharp
bark. "The pup's getting close to
him," remarks the mistress. "Yow,
vomj yip, yip." The sound comes
from the juniper bushes ut the top
of the ridge. There is a sharp struggle marked by flying sand and yelps
aud squeals. Then the spaniel is seen
lo emerge bearing a little brown ob*
j.ot in his mouth. Triumphantly he
approaches his mistress and presents
the trophy ol the hunt.
Again and again the thing is repeated. Sometimes the rat takes to
the big marsh, but the keen scent of
the spaniels traces him out and the
end is the same.
"Whut do you do with the carcasses
of the ruts?" wus asked of a woman
who was returning with a couple of
ihe d ad animals from the big marsh
"Why, we eat 'em, of course, what
we want of 'em, and what we don't

emphasis that lent conviction. "You

Origin  of the Cannon.
It  is  a  curious  fact  that   the  first ,
cannon was cast at Venice.    It was
called a "bombard" and was invent- !
ed and employed by Gen.  Pisnni in '
a war nguinst the Genoese.   The org-
ina! bombard, which bears the date of
1380, Is still preserved and  stands at
the foot of  Pisani's statue at the ar*
•enal.   The bombard threw   a   stone
'00  pounds   in   weight,  Lut   another
Venetian    general,   Francisco    Barde, '
improved it until he was able to handle a charge of rock  and  bowlders
weighing 3.000 pounds,   lt proved dis-
■istrous to him, however, for one dny

tribute the balance of the annual
premiums necessary to secure the
said Annuity, an oiler which the said
daughter readily accepted on ascertaining how small an amount she
would be required to pay. She
found that by a saving of $1.27 a
month, in addition t.o the $25 a
year, (or $2.09 a month) to be paid
by her father, the Annuity of $300

The lirst Sl. Patrick's Day.
The hrlgnt sun o'er Brlns hills had lit their hearths aglow;
The spring flowers docked every mossy hank in every dell below,
The angels sang their hymns of praise,   the birds their sweotont lay
As Patrick went    to   Parti's Malls that First St. Patrick's nay.
Anil when he reached that Royal  Inn, in holy silent prayer,
'T.was not thc humble peasant folks who were assembled there;
'Twas princes, chiefs, ond lordly knights who ruled with lordly sway
That Patrick met on Tarn's Hill that First St. Patrick's Day.
He told tbem of the one true God who rolgns in  persons there,
But could not make them understand that wondrous mystery
Until he stooped and gently plucked a lovely Shamrock spray;
They saw. believed and understood, that First. St. Patrick's Day.
Those pagan priests and lordly knights, those bards and sires of old
Who worshipped at the pagan shrines, and honored gods of gold;
Those chiefs who never feared friend or foe, tbe foremost in the fray,
They knelt and bowed before the cross, that First St. Patrick's Day.
Then souls aflame with heavenly light baptised like christian men;
They wished to teach to other souls that what Patrick taught to them,
They loft their homes, tholr friends and nil. crossed o'er the ocean spray
And purchased tbe faith that Patrick preached that, Firstl'atrlck's Oay.
Our Saint is known  iu every bind where christian hells doth chime.
Among tin? list of Clod's great Saints, his name does brightly shine;
lie's loved throughout this wide, wide world, where Irish oxiles stay;
Within their hearts a guiding ligbtsiuce that, First St.  Patrick's Dny.
Another Patrlrlt's Day now dawns, to stir our hearts with love,
For lOrin's glorious patron St., who dwells in heaven above;
When kneel lng round Clod's altar blest, then bow your head aud pray
...And thailk Hint for tbe Rifts he gave that, First St.  Patrick's Day.

mill on Bridge crcok, about one and
one-half miles hack of Albrldgo.* Tbe ■
capacity of the mill will he about
26.00(1 feet a day" and will give em
ploy mont to some 50 men. Tbe com
pany has a contract for _(ji,,0(IO ties
which have to he delivered hy the

there are 15,000,000 feet of timber in
the vicinity of the mill. |
Morrltt, li. p. March 15. -Three
mnn wero hurt, one fatally In an accident on tho 0. P, IL main line
two miles west of LytOll. The work
engine was pushing two tint cars on
which were 80 men composing an ox-
tni gang. Suddenly tho car struch a
ronk slide overturning them and hurling tbe men in all directions. The
engineer could not see tho slide because of a sharp reverse curve. Foie»
man King bed his back broken and
was taken to KumlaoiW whore be Ib
lying In a critical condition.    ...
Work  is progressing  ns rapidly  as
1 can be expected on account of the
weather conditions   at the     Society
' Girl mine, which is located at Moyle
nml  adjoins  the  St.,      tfillgpno  mine.
. Thc warm weather has made It Impossible for any more sleighing and
until the road Ih iu lit condition for
wagons on shipments will be made,
In speaking to J, P. Farroll, secretary of the company, regarding the
shlpmonts lie snid:   "Shipments  wlll
i bo retarded for about six weeks now,
but during this time the ore taken
out wlll he stored at the portal of
the tunnel, although, special efforts
will he made to continue shipments
whunevor practical,"
Nine cms of nro have heen shipped
in all 2H7 toim, to tho smelter at
Trail, This oro has been of a very
good grade.
Work has been confined to dopclop-
mont on the vein west of the lower
ot Nn. Il tunnel which Is iu a dis
tance of 1411(1 feet. A short time
ago ore wu. encountered in the drift
about     I2.ri feet off    the main     tunnel.    Drifting has boon continued on
this for Hume 7.r> feet and the ore
vein has held a width of ahout three
feet. The ore has every Indication
or permanency. Raising about 20
feet ou the on- it ts found to keep
ahout the same width ami Improving In value. In tbe bottom of tho
drift the ore is on an average stronger than above the present workings.
Thc same character, of ore was found
160 feet east in the bottom of tbe
drift, thus showing the extent of tbe
ore body.
Spring Improvements have not yet
been started but it Is expected Home
new buildings will be put up soon.
Tbe annual meeting of the share
holders of the company will he held
In .Tune.
In a preliminary review of tbe mineral production of Hritish Oolumbla
for 1910, it. is estimated lhat il
amounts to a total value of $26,188,-

production on record, ihe next high'
est having been in IU07, when the
mineral production amomiiod io

to about $.10,00(1,(100, of which fully
forty per cent. represents ihe production of the la^t tive years, and
mote than half was produced duriug
tbe last seven years. Comparing
the years 1909 ami 1910, there was an
Increase in the production of gold
$5,401,090, to $5,680,505. Silver
simwed a slight decrease iu quantity
produced, hut at the _am. tunc a
slight increase in thc value. Lead

was confused by the errors, the mis*
interpretations of the Bible, which I
had received.
Trained in the Doctrin* of Election
and Predestination I, like hosts of
others, [pit somehow that Brother
Wesley's teaching ol Fre« Grace wa.
more noble, more God-like, than
Brother Calvin's teaching respecting
El 'Ction   nnd   Pr'destination.
Npvert he] s-. wh-n I reasoned on
the subject 1 said, Can I think ol the

did not know that we would be born
in sin and shapen in Iniquity? Can j
I think that he did not know i t the
present reign of Satan, Sin and Death
and that it would last for -ix thousand years and injuriously affect our
entire race?
Brother Wesley's theory of God's
Love and good Intentions—of his endeavor to save evervbody—seems inconsistent when contrasted with his
teaching that onlv n saintly few reach
eternal bliss and thnt the thousands
ol millions must spend eternity in
torture. Tims I was once contused,
ns millions are still confused to-day.
in respect to the Divine Character as ;
exemplified in the Divine plan of
the ages. So far ua I can see. Brother
Calvin had a wise and powerful God ,
such as I could ndmire and reverence, if he hnd only bertn kind and
lovint! instead nf diabolical. And j
Brother Wesley had a kind nnd lov-
lng God such as 1 could admire and
worship, if he had onlv had tho wisdom and power of Calvin's theory.
So long ns we have such confusion .
In our minds faith and hope and love i
and trust shake upon thi- foundations I
af our reason.    We recognise thai we
know nothing of tho  future of ourselves; that  wc are wholly dependent
upon Divine Revelation.   But we can. I
not  expect   that   our   Creator   would  !
give us a Revelation which to sancli- I
lied  minds  would  appear Satanic  in.   '
stood nf Divine.   We must remember j
that our Creator invites u„ to reason,
saying,   "Coins,   l.t   us   reason   together; th th your sins h> as Bear-
lot, they   shall   be white   as   srn>W."

Similarly   during   this   Gospel   Age
God chooses from tlie world a certain
chus   and   grants   them   the   hearing
ear and tlie seeing eye, and He passes '
by   others   and   gives   them   not   this

St.   Paul  speaks ol  the Church  as

He even tells us what the purpose is,
namely,    that   in    Vges   to   come     He
might show forth ilu- exceeding
riches ol His grace in His loving
kindness toward us in Christ Jesus
fEphe.lans ii, 7). Toward this specially called class God will to all eternity manifest special favor But we
are not to suppose that there is no
reason for this selection and favor

indeed, thi. is God's particular pr

These only would hear His call. This.

these alone would accept of H.s as ur

His service. Such He would beget of
His Holy Spirit, ami such, in due
time, would he born ol the Sp.r.t in
the resurrection and enter into the
fellowship aud companionship aud
kingly joys of their Master.
It is of thU special class that the
Apostle   declares,   "Whom   God  d.d ;
foreknow, these He also did predesti-
nate to be conformed to the lik.ness
(image)  of   His  Son"   (Romans  vUt, '
29),   That i_ to say, God's predest na-
tion was not only that He would hav
a Church, but, additionally, that the
terms or conditions of fellowship in
that Church should be that each one j
would become Christ-like.   Surely this j
is a good  predestination,  with  whi- h
no one could find fault.   Whether we

my dear friends- Cod's Word is true.
His Character is glorious. Only the
mist and smoke ol the "dark ages"
have confused things for us and mystified matters and darkened the eyes
of our  understanding.
Now as the six thousand years have
passed and we have entered upon the
Sabbatic Seventh Thousand we are
beginning to realize that it marks a
New  Dispensation—that the night  Is
iiassed; that the dawn is upon us.
'he wonderful inventions of our day
along earthly lines are in full harmony with the clear light now shining upon God's Word, making its
dark places bright ami its rough
places smooth and enabling us to remove the stumbling stone- from the
"path way of the just, which shineth
more and more unto the perfect day."
Now we can see why Jesus did not
pray fur the world. Il was because
the world was uot in any danger of a
fiery hell. More than that, it was
because God'fl time for deuling with
the world had not yet come. The
world, however, is to be dealt with
by the great Redeemer After He
ahall have .,-i up His King'loin in
power and great glory . after He shall
huve bound Bat an for a thousand
years that be might deceive the peoplo no more, the glorious Saviour,
Messiah, will cause a general enlightenment of mankind and a full
opportunity for all. rich and poor,
groat and small, to rise up from dust
and ashes and the grave to the full
perfection of human nature.
The Sun of Righteousness will arise
wi'h healing in his beams, blessing
mankind, healing their diseases, mental, moral ami physical, aud causing
the knowledge of the bird to fill the
whole earth. No longer will any need
to say u> Ins neighbor or his brother,
"Know thou the Lord, for all shall
know Him, from the least .o The
greatest." And only the wi'fullv
wicked nnd disobedient will be cut off
from life In the Second Death not

"Thoy sliiili be punished with ever

In many Canadian villages the man
who teaches the school is second in
importance only to the minister. If
the minister is away, the public meeting is presided over by the teacher.
If nn athletic club, debating society,
or reading circle is tu be formed, the
teacher is expected to lead the way.
His opinion carries weight, and his
companionship is valued highly by
the young men of the vil'.ge.
That's the background for a little
incident in which there figured the
teacher and a "citizen" of a village a
few miles from Owen Sound. The two
were on one of their Utile autumn
rambles near the village, and th-y had
exchanged interesting bit; of information ahout cities and the open country. "I've often wondered," said the
villager, after they had talked of many
strange things, "how all these hills
The teacher had been reading up so
as to make interesting the lessons iu
advanced geography, which his couple of fifth class pupils were soon to
have, and it was with pleasure that
he stated what appealed to him as
the most probable cause of the hills.
Carefully, he explained the theory
that the earth had cooled and contracted, its crust thereby wrinkling
into valleys and hills.
The other man listened attentively,
and then, with not the suspicion of a
smile, said, "Oh, that's it. And here
I've bc.„ going along thinking that
it was just that people had too much
laud and piled some of it up out ol
the way."
It was the same villager who, when
"company" had helped Y .t to do full
justice to supper at hia home, would
say, "I wish it was to-morrow morning," and, when someone had asked
why, would say. "I want to see what
we're going to have for breakfast."
Some Business Red Tape.
All citizens feel called upon occasionally to criticize Government or
military red tajw. and they speak as
though it was something completely
out-of-date in the ordinary affairs of
life. A young man who has frequent-
ty to put through an expense bill in
a large Ontario business house tells
a sto.j of business red tape. Kvery
expense bill has to be initialed by a
iiumb.-r of head*, of different d part-

that that watchfulness was largely _

and was called in by the manager of

looked over it and found fault with
one point, 'ml finally put his initials
on it. too. A couple of other officers
passed it, and Hna.ly the cashier criticized some item and then handed over
the money.

lo-k.UK warrior in   lull panop y  C.imbed    majestically    on    hoard.      With
plumes and paint,  aod all the trappings of state, he stalked up to the
'. pilot-house, and there took his stand
beside the helmsman     With   folded
arms he posed, gaxina sternly  upon
' the  seethiug  waters     Now  and  then
he addressed a word or two to the
wheel.   Hut most of the 'une be mere-
i ly stood antl   gaud coldly  and   Impassively at the rapids,
It gave one a teeUtUj of absolutely
safety to see Intu there 'Timid Women, )ust on the poiut of shrieking
at some particularly heavy roll ol the
boat, would glance up at that imperturbable face and sigh in content.
There could be no such thing as danger while he was there.
Some of the more knowing passengers    would   explain    in    awi-struck
) tones   lhat   he   was   Big John,   the
Canadian, and that every New Year's
i Day he shot the  rapids amid raging
waters and tumbling Ice In a canoe.
They  would  tell  you lhat he  was  a
great chief of the Iroquois, and that
the  ste-ituboat   company   had   secured
him at tremendous expense to ensure
the safety of their passengers.   WeU,
it was quite true about his being Big
John,   and   also   a   fact  that   he  shot
the rapids on New  Year's Oay  in  a
canoe, if he could induce venturesome
gentlemen to pay him to take them
down.     And   he  generally   found   two
' or three to go with him, for the sake
of the adventure and the notoriety attached to it.    But as for steering the
steamboat through the rapids, he was
about as  necessary  as a sail on  it.
As a matter of fact, the work was all
done by the very Insignificant-looking
( boat-hands who clung tu the kicking
i wheel  and   swung   it   with   all   the
! strength that   was    iu  them.    These
meu knew the rapids and knew how

'■ John   was,  and   so featured   him   in
'■■ this  picturesque fashion.
But    whether   he   was   altogether
i needed on the pilot-deck or not. Big
i John was a very interesting figure—
| and still is.   Only a short time ago
he celebrated his seventieth birthday;
and on that   occasion   indulged   in
some   very  interesting   reminiscences
with a reporter of The Montreal Witness, who went out to Caughnawaga
to see him.   The newspaperman made
an allusion to   shooting   the   rapids.
and   immediately  Big   John   started
to reminisce.
"I'm getting too old now for anything like that," said he, "but a few
years ago it didn't matter how cold
it was. I was never nfraid, never hud

canoe rose up, up in the air and came
down hard. Thut time the bow opened a little near the top. But it didn't
mutter, I run the rest uf the rapids
just the same."
The old man then recalled his first
New Year's trip through the treacherous waters. At the recollection he
straiBhteued up, and laying his blackened briar pipe on the table grasped
an imaginary paddle. Then he told
how the cold wuter rushing hy washed into the bout and numbed him,
how he could not feel the paddle, so
cold were his hands, how he guided
his little craft between the rocks,
sliding over the smooth blocks in
the shallow places, with skilful twist
of the arm sending the boat past the
dangerous spots until the smooth
water was reached. At times, caught
in an eddy, the canoe would whirl
about with a suddenness that would
have thrown an unprepared passenger out, but though he could scarce
see, for the tears that the cold
brought to his eyes, he sensed the
moment and the place to dip the
paddle, und swerve into the rushing
waters once more.
The last time that Big John performed this feut was when His Majesty, then the Duke of York, visited
Canada in 1901.
The old man's home is not a pretentious place. From the outside it
is a frame two-storied building, plain
as the man himself, and as weather-
beaten. But inside it is different.
One who suw the interior before observing the exterior construction
would probably surmise that the
house was built of huge, rough logs,
ii house of the pioneer days.
And .mi it was ninety years ago,
when flr.-t erected. But it has been
changed since then. Big John, as
his family grew too large Ior the one

Hour, added a story. "But these old
beams are the same," said he, reaching up to the ceiling, his straight
form giving evidence of the wonderful
physique of his younger dnys. The
beams were of pine, some of them,
cracked and warped, but still strong.
The walls were whitewashed and the
old floor, which four generations huve
trod, was as clean as the deck of u
man-of-war. 0» the walls were
pictures of Big John in the glory of
his Indian costume, which he wore
as a lure to tourists when u pilot on

schools in Essex and elsewhere in
the province, following the Hanna-
Pallon tempest, has a lot of French
blood in his veins. The family name

it was Irom the maternal side that

but as lar as outward appearances go.
in everything else. As fur as the
.nowledge of his intimate friend;
goes, Mr. Merchant does not even
speak French, though some of the "bilingual" teachers on the back concessions ol Essex may by this time be
able to testify otherwise. In mental
equipment, Mr. Merchant haa especial capacity for mathematics and the
sciences. His is the well-balanced

the precision and accuracy of a finely-
adjusted mechanism, ln this it may
be he owes a debt to his French extraction, for the Frenhc have a reputation in the realm of logic. In Ire

What Use Is Cottonwood?
A good opportunity awaits the
scientific investigator. There are ex-
tensive stretches of huge Cottonwood
trees in the Fraser liver valley in
British Columbia. At present, their
economic value is nil. The wood is
too soft for working into lumber; it
rots quickly, is exceedingly brittle,
und has no durability. It is useless
for lirewiiod,, und apparently has no
cluim to value for pulping operations. Its only utilization at present
is for Indian dug-outs, for which the
demand is limited und decreasing.
Unless applied chemistry run find
♦une means of turning the wood to
commercial account, thousands of
these giants will simply he torn on*
and discarded like weeds. Possibly
the development ol denatured alcohol might result in their exportation.

Col.  Den.son  Arrested.
Col. George T. Denison, Toronto's
famous police magistrate, was once
arrested himself under peculiar circumstances. It was in the spring of
1868. He was in Montreal, where he
met Sir Henry Havelock, with whom
he had become acquainted the year
previous in Toronto. Sir Henry, a
son of the Havelock of Indian Mutiny
fame, had come to Canada to succeed
Colonel (afterwards Lord) Wolseley
as Deputy Quurtermaster-Qeneral of
the forces here. He found Colonel
Denison to be a congenial spirit, full
of enthusiasm for military affairs,
and so he asked him to accompany
him on a walking tour through the
Eastern Townships, to secretly examine the frontier and verifying the
official military, maps. Col. Denison
was pleased to go ulong. But the
mysterious movements of the two
when they started aroused considerable suspicion. At last, while they
were at the village of Huntington,
they were questioned by a local
militia officer, and as their answers
did not satisfy him, the two colonels
were arrested. The officer who took
them in charge intimated that the
village magistrate was ready to commit them as "suspicious characters,"
and that they were to be driven
twenty-eight miles to the county jail
at Benuharnois.
At lhat stage of the proceedings
they bound the magistrate to secrecy,
disclosed their identity, and were
then allowed to proceed. Col. Denison tells the story in his book, "Soldiering In Canada," and notes that
this was the only time he was ever
placed under arrest.—Toronto Star.

Princeton University, by the class of

French Scots.
There is an ancient settlement of
highland Scots, near Murray Bay,
on the St. Lawrence, which has
adopted the French language instead
of English. It was formed of disbanded soldiers soon alter thc British
conquest of Canada, and officers and
men intermarried with tbe French
Canadians, adopting their language
aud habits so completely that, though
they bear such names as Blackburn,
Warren, McLean and McNicholI,
their dependents are in all other respects as French as the iulmhi.___.i_

Prof.  George J.  Blewett  Has  Found
Fame Abroad. •
Prof. George J. Blewett of Victoria
College, who last year was honored
with u cull to deliver the lectures on
the Taylor Foundation, ul Vaie. ia a
recognized-foro» in the-word of letter's though little known tn Toronto
outside of academie circles. He has
not any decided talent for preaching,
and is not fond of public appearances
o! any kind. He leads a life given
over to books and meditation, and except for thick-crowding fancies might
fittingly be described us u lonely man,
fulfilling the old ideal of the ascetic
philosopher. For his years there is
not a more widely read student nor
a greater master of English prose style
in Canada.
Dr. Blewett was born in St. Thomas
in 1873, and comes of uu old Cornish
family. From hia infancy he was
scarcely ever seen without a book in
his hand. He matriculated in 1890,
but after spending over two years at
the University of Toronto was obliged, on account of ill-health, to go
west, where he engaged in Methodist
mission work in Alberta for three
years. Returning to Victoria College,
he proceeded with his course, und was
graduated with high honors in the department of philosophy in 1897. He
spent the next two years in Toronto
in post-graduate work in his chosen
subject. Following this, he pursued
his studies in Germany arid at Harvard University. At the latter institution he was showered with honors
and received a fellowship for a year
ut Oxford and Berlin.
Dr. Blewett was appointed in the
autumn of 1901 professor of philosophy
in Wesley College, Winnipeg. After
serving there with great acceptance
for five years he wus called to Victoria College, and since coming to
Toronto has received tempting offers
to assume professorships iu the United States.
Prof. Blewett published in 1007 a
large volume of philosophical essays
entitled "The Study of Nature and
thc Vision of God." This book was
received with cordial praise not only
by tlie daily press, but by such learned publications as The London Quarterly Review, The Expository Times,
The London Spectator, The Philosophical Review, The Revue de Meta-
physique et de Morale of Paris, and
The Review of Theology and Philosophy of Edinburgh.
A Vast Unknown Land.
Nineteen-ten has been a red letter
: year in the history of the Upper Fras-
! er River, for in June last the woods
' re-echoed the strident blast of the siren of a steamboat which pushed its
way successfully up from Fort George
to Tete Jaune Cache, conclusively
proving that, with ease, its treacherous waters could be navigated by a
shallow draft vessel. Next year, a
i fleet of commodious stern-whe-leis
I will tear incessantly up and down,
; bearing constructional material, men,
; and provisions for the building of the
j line. Thus, the Grand Trunk Pacific
[ will eflect two remarkable achieve-
I ments in ono stroke—will develop a
, vast tract of unknown lund by pane-
' trating it with the iron horse, und
: open a long-closed waterway to steam
I navigation.
j    The Fraser River Volley will, in the
i course of a few years, become one of
! the busiest and most prosperous ugri-
; cultural and industrial belts in British Columbia.    As the river is tra-
1 versed, the mountain ranges roll well
: back, leaving a wide, yawning valley
j through wliich the river makes its tor-
I tuous way, doubling  and redoubling
i upon itself.  To give some idea of this
j extraordinary wandering, it may be
j mention   thut    whereas   you   must
cover 320 miles to journey by water
! from   Tete   Jaune   Cache   to   Fort
George, the railway, by following almost an  air line, only  requires 206
miles of   steel   to connect  the   two
The whole of the valley is covered
with dense impenetrable primeval forest,-stretching from the water's edge
right up to the timber-line on the
mountains. Fortunately, fire has
wrought but little damage here, and
the timber is of distinct value too.
Just how many hundred million dollars this huge forest represents to the
British Columbian Government it ia
impossible to say. Towering Douglas
fir are in profusion, while the spruce,
hemlock, and cedar are also prolific.
Dr. Grenfell In London.
Dr. Wilfred T. Grenfell, C.M.G., who
is well-known in Canada because of
his useful work in Labrador, is at
present in England, where he is attracting considerable notice. On Feb.
6, he delivered a lecture in Queen's
Hall, London, before a brilliant audience. He was described by The Westminster Gazette as "one of the best
story-tellers living," which is praise
indeed. Dr. Grenfell describes himself as "the most popular doctor in
his district," and as he is the only
doctor in one-quarter of a continent,
his claim is not over-stated.
As a youngster, Dr. Grenfell played
Rugby for Oxford. He is an excellent
shot and all-round athlete. He wus
house surgeon to Sir Fred. Treves, before crossing the Atlantic to Newfoundland and proceeding to his chosen work in Labrador nearly nineteen
years ago. In different parts of that
extensive country he has set up four
hospitals, which are of great benefit
to thc sea-going people.   He spends
fiart of each year lecturing to raise
unds for his work, and his lectures
abound in good stories and stirring
passages, dealing with thc adventurous lives and simple heroism of th*
people among whom he works.

Fearful Cost of War
I    Those who are preaching in behalf
I of the world's peace should realize the
tremendous   cost  of   war.   No    more
i effective sermon against  incresed armaments  could  be prepared  than  is
contained in the simple statement that
since the civil war ended, in 1865, the
tUnited States has paid, for pensions

Canada's Champion Dancer
Cured of Piles by Zam-Buk
Mr.   Thomas  .).   Hogan,   Champion
Clog and Pedestal Dancer of Canada,
! who resides at 69 Chanibord St., Mon*
j treal writes: "It gives me much pleasure to let you know my opinion of
I your wonderful Zam-Buk.    For some
time puat   I  have heen  troubled wiih
j piles, but this year 1 suffered so much
. thut 1 was obliged to cancel a number of engagements.   1 tried all thej
i so-called   remedies  that  were  recom-j
! mended, but they seemed to do me no
j good.    Having   been   advised   to  try
'Zam-Buk I purchased a box, and after applying it a few   times   I   felt
marked relief.   I continued with thei
Zam-Buk  treatment, and    the    relief;
I was extended into a permanent cure.
j I gladly permit you to use my export-
once us uu  illustration  of the great
j value of Zam-Buk for piles."

i Buk   cures   long-standing   casos   of
piles    is provided    by    Mr.  William;
Kenty, of Upper Nine   Mile   River, r
Hants Co.,  N.S.    He says:    "I suf-;
fered terribly from piles, the puin at
times being almost unbearable.   Zam-
Buk  was recommended  to me so  I
procured a supply    und   commenced
with the treatment.      After   a   very
short time Zam-Buk effected a complete cure."
Zam-Buk is also a cure for ulcers,

Mrs. Vaillancourt adds her experience to the great mass of proof that
Dodd's Kidney Pills are woman's
best friend.
Lafond, Alberta (Special).—That the
women ol the West aro finding in
Dodd's Kidney Tills a sure relief
from those aches and pains ,that only
women know is becoming more evident every day, and Mrs. Agnes Vuil-
luncourt of this place gladly gives
her experience as an addition to the
mass of proof that is being piled up.
"For three years I suffered intensely with Kidney Disease," Mrs. Vaillancourt states. "I had pain everywhere. I only used six bows of
Dodti's Kidney Pills and I am completely cured of all my aches and
pains.   I am in perfect health today."
Woman's health depends on her
Kidneys. If Ihey are not in perfect
order the impurities are not strained
out of her blood and she cannot be
healthy. She feels it in every part
of her body and the results is that
she is weary and worn aud full of
aches ami pains. What every woman
should know is that there is sure relief aud perfect health for her if she
uses Dodd's Kidney i'ills.
He Got Shot
The smart man burst into the room.
"Heard the news about Dickenson
getting shot?" he roared, red with excitement.
Club members dropped their papers
and sprang suddenly to life.
"No!" they cried.   "When?"
" 'Bout haU-an-hour ago!" gasped the Smart Man.   I was there and
saw it!"
"Where did lie get shot!"
"Where did he get shot?" broke in
"Down at the ironmonger's!"
chuckled the Smart Man, slipping into the best chair. "He bought two
pounds of it!"
Of dreams divine I built his shrine
And washed it clean with tears,
I strewed before its golden door,
Tlie flowers of all my years.

Weed-grown her shrine and hare,

He paused and found her fair.
With careless eyes ho passed me hy,
The love I might not win.
Hut knelt before her graceless door,
And prayed her take him in.

of the ailments from which little
ones suffer. When baby's bowels are
not working regularly illness is sure

for baliies has such good effect on the
bowels as has Baby's Own Tablets.
Tbey make their action regular, sweeten the stomach and promote good

Baby's Own Tablets for all the trou-
