WHAT THEY EAT AND HOW THEY LIVE
Tbe following letter is from P. C-
Ranklu to G. H. Richardson ami will be
rend witb inleiest by tbe people of South
Bast Kootetiav who knew the members
of the South Bast Kootenay contingent
ofthe South African constabulary:
II, M. Transport "Montfort."
April 7, 1901.
My Dear G. II—I think I promised in
my lust to write from Cape Town, but as
we expect to reach the Cape Verde Isles
tomorrow, I am going to inflict jou
slightly before time, so never mind the
pencil aud general chirography of this,
old man, I would like to do better, but
tbis blamed old packet is slightly uneasy today. She reminds me somewhat
of Tom Cavil's 3254 caboose when ahe
hits the high points on the Goat River
section. At oue minute she goes, nose
on, into a wall of water of from 500 to a
1000 tons, and the next she is diving
sideways for sharks with her funnel, but
on tbe whole we have had a swagger
trip with the weather made to order and
dealt out in about equal proportions of
sunshine and raiu. We are gradually
feeling" the tropics. We peeled our
overcoats day before yesterday, our
sweaters yesterday, our flannel shirts today, aud sny, G. H., if it keeps on I
shudder to think of tbe uniform (or lack
of uniform) that His Majesty's troopers
will parade at Cape Town with. We enjoyed our run down from Ottawa to Halifax and had a mighty fine send off at
both places. We came down in two sections, each section being handled by a
double header, and perhaps you think
that Canada Atlantic roadbed isn't all
right? Vou cau bet that there is something more thau the fence holding tbat
pike together. At one station on the
way down the whole town was out to
take "gappings," and we counted one
bunch of 26 ladies in a covey, and It was
right there that we bad trouble with
Sammy Rajotte. Of course he wanted
to get off and camp right there; Nova
Scotia was good enough for him; be
said he wauled to hunt np some of Old
Pusbce'a relatives and just tell them that
he saw Push and be was looking well.
It took Jimmie Henderson, Billy Cnth-
cart and myself all our time to bold him
and even then we wouldn't have succeeded if we hadn't compromised hy
promising to ItH him ashore at St. Vincent. The boya are wondering if our
miy friend in New Vork, wbo prophesied that we would have three deaths at
sea and then on the uth go down, was
talking through her hat, or kuew a thing
or two, especially aa we have had two
burials already, one yesterday and one
today, and two more men in the hospital
one of whom is not expected to get
through the day. A sea bnrlal is a aad
and solemn sight; it seems hard to see
them go overboard iu their little canvas
lisg. Uut I suppose they are just aa
happy without a tombstone. We have a
oncert every night, given by some one
of the n| 11 ml 1011s. Our Etjuadroii, 11, al'
from British Columbia, put oue on the
boards night before last and it waa certainly a Jim dandy. We have some
swell enlertaineta in our troop, from
Nelson, and you can readily Imagine that
amongst some 1200 odd men you find
some rare and original characters.. We
sleep in hammocks this bot weather,
and say, if you ever hear of thla duck
going back to the old wooden or iron
bedstead, spring and tick again, you can
figure it out that there Is just something
not doing its drill in Old Rankin's head.
We had plum dough (pronounced duff)
for dinner today, with raisins in It and
sauce all over it. Henderson said, "I
Kiiesn that's poor, eh," but of course he
never got anything like that at home or
be never would have left there, Day
after tomorrow we get a barrel of eating
apples issued to each squadron, and we
won't do a thing to tbat fruit, partner—
oh. no,-—I guess we will give it back to
lhe man. Our bill ofofare is rather sub
stantial and if we live on it for three
years we ought to be huskies. A pastry
cook seems to be a fifth wheel ta this
band wagon; I guess Edward VII thinka
It must be bad for Indigestion. I had
dinner with W. S. Cranston while In Ottawa, and apent a day going around the
city works with him. He haa a mighty
nice position as assistant city engineer,
and from what I saw of it should judge
his work lo be considerably more interesting than railroad routine, no correspondence to worry witb; the chief takes
care of that assisted by a lady steno
grapher. Well, eld horse, (we have a
fellow In "I" squadron lhat lhe boya
call old horse, because anybody can lead
him tu. water hut the whole squndiou
cau't make him tlnuk ii) nothing personal.
I guess I will have to say God bless
you, Give my love to "Cy" aud remember me to nil kiud, enquiring friends.
Henderson nays we may reach Cape
Town in [4 days but Sam mie snys we
can't do it tbe way the roads ute

town; but in tbe future, as in tbe past,
the officials will continue to do tbe best

CRANBROOK IS DEFEATED
The Nelson Buys Prove Too Strang
Oi the Ketira Game.
IT WAS HOT FIOM STAKT TO FINISH
And tht Viiiton Were Treated In
a Royal Manner By the Nelson Boys.
AN APOLOGY.
Tbe Herald is moviog its office tin*
week, «n,l to fadllate matters, publishes
QUejlay ahead of time. In consequence
tiie paper is a little shy ol news.
EVERYBODY HAD A JOLLY QOOD TIME
TALK ON JOB PRINTING.
The Herald bas ordered another lot o
type, aggregating over f 100. A friend of
tbe Herald remarked the day the
order was sent In: "Why are you sending for more type, Simpson? You have
now twice as much material as any office
in towns of this size in British Columbia." Tbat is true. But the world
moves, and nothing changes move rapidly tban style and custom in typography,
To give satisfaction to your patrons, the
job printer must not ouly keep up witb
the procession but a little ahead of it.
Some say: "Oh, that is not necessary
in a smalt town." That is a mistake.
South Bast Kootenay and Cranbrook
have their up-to-date business men.
They read and tbey observe. A job of
printing printed with type ten years out
of dale don't go with tbem. They want
modern printing. Tbe Herald has type
in its office that has not been designed
over six months, and lhe last order Includes new facet that have met with such
a degree of popularity iu lhe business
circles of Kastern Canada and the States.
Tbe Herald believes in being up-lo date.
Aud, yet, the beat of type, the latest designs, in the hands of typographical
blacksmiths, produces a most pitiful
effect. The Herald pays the highest of
union wages and bas men who have been
taught their trade in large cities, where
typographical excellence la an art. Men
cannot "pick up" the printing trade.
They must be trained by artists to be
artists. The Herald job printing gives
satisfaction. The best of material Is used,
Ihe latest In type faces, and the knowledge of modern typographical combination. Naturally there Is a moral to this
little talk. If you want job work, want
It right, want It artistic, want It modern
and wan}-to keep your money In the
district, have tbe work done at the
Herald office. We are printers of modern printing.
Tie New South Roid.
Oliver Burge relurned this week from
Elko and Tobacco Plains, He aaya tbe
engineers on the new road have worked
from Jennings north as far as lhe mouth
of Elk river, and have turned back and
are cross sectioning. Tbere tie three
routes in view, and Mr, Burge says no
one seems to know what one will be
selected. The people of Kalispell have
a party of engineers in thc field, endeavoring to locate a feasible route from
Kaleapell to Elko. This route Mr.
Burge says will be 60 miles longer tban
the Jennings route with a much heavier
grade. He (ound George Hoggarth doing a good business at his Elko hotel.
He saw Pred Roo and Julius Hurel. Roo
has an hotel, and Mr. Hurel Is wailing
for developments before he locates.
Mr. Burge left for the Lardenu Wednesday where he has some property. He
expects to return to the Tobacco Plains
country fur lhe summer,
hist Saturday the Cranbrook foot ball
team went to Nelson to play the return
game, but as the boat arrivt-d too laie to
play that night the game waa postponed
until the next day. Wheu tbe first con
lest was bad in Cranbrook, the game
was a tie. Aa a result great interest was
manifested iu the game and there was a
largecrowd present.
Tbe Nelson Tribune, of Monday, had
Ihe following account of lhe game:
"Yesterday the ground was dry aod
bard and almost every fall meant a skin
abrasion. Sticking piaster was in great
requisition and the services ofthe medical men among Ihe spectators were more
than ouce called upon. But there was
nothing very tier ion. in lhe accident
line, and uot one of tbe players was
knocked out. There were cases of shattered teeth aud the infliction of accidental wounds which under olher circuni
stances might be accepted as bad conduct marks. In football, under (he
Rugby rules, everything goes, and tbe
man who enters the contest knows what
he has to expect.
"Of the two teams the Nelson men certainly had the advantage of weight, aud
in a scrimmage this counts. They also
showed better combination work. The
game started punctually at 3:30, and
Craubrook, winning the toss, played
against the sun.
"From lhc moment the ball was set iu
motion the home team showed a lively
pace and gave tbe Craubrooks to understand that if they were to win, the battle would be a tough one. Afler some
vary pretty passing between the Nelson
three quarters, Macrae secured a try, but
the place kick failed. Prom this point
Cranbrook began, to stir up, and a more
evenly contested game was lhe result.
With the visitors working the ball up
the ground, Beale secured it from a
scrimmage, and put a fine try which was
converted into a goal amid loud applause.
Just before half time the Nelson three-
quarters again got in some good work,
which ended with Nase securing a second try, but the kick was once more a
failure.
"In tbe second half Cranbrook appeared to tire, and the Nelson men had
it nretty much their own way, Craubrook
defending but never looking dangerous.
For a long time, however, they managed
to keep their own line uncrossed, until
from a dribble by the lorwarda Houston
rccured a third try. The place kick was
taken by Lyues, aud although at a very
difficult angle, he sent the ball home,
thus giving Nelson the victory—11 to 5,
on 1 goal aud a tries to goal.'
The Cranbrook contingent have only
words of praise for the Nelson people.
From lhe time they landed until they
left it was one grand audi glorious sweet
song of unalloyed pleasure. Nothing
waa too good for the visitors and Craubrook money waa at a discount. They
have some great aporta in Nelson who
love athletics, and know bow to treat
visitors who come to play any game.
The members of the Cranbrook team
also have many words of praise (or Mr.
Haines, their manager, wbo displayed
so much consideration for all of the
boys, and tbey unanimously voted him
a "jolly good fellow" for his many acts
of kindness.
The casualties were not many. Mr.
Wallingar bad one ear badly lacerated,
and Mr. Haines lost a tooth, while several others were more or less bruised.
The Cranbrook boys desire The Herald to state that what tbey did accomplish was greatly due to the work of the
players from Fort Steele, Moyie and
Fernie.
Tbe players and positions were as
follows:
Craubrook.—Fullback, A. B. Fenwick;
three quarters, P. Heichmer, N. A.
Wallinger, M. A. Beale, T. Fenwick;
half-back, M. J. McDonald, H. B.
Haiues; forwards, R. Robinson, A. C
Watt, C. M. Edwards, A. C. McDonald.
R. Willimott, Holmes, Guille.
Nelson.—Fult back, F. Lynes; three-
quarter, W. R. Seattle, O. Nase, F. A.
Mscrae, A. Jeffs; half back, G. C. Hodge,
F. Pullen; lorwarda, K. V, Thomson, A.
V. Mason, A. F. Ssrgeant, T. II Forbes.

SOME   HARD   FACTS
From I1k> Kulo Ku -U-iuhiii.
At present the condition prevailing in
connection with the market for silver-
lead ores bas brought tbis branch of
mining to a standstill. The American
Smelting and Refining company, a one
hundred million dollar combination,
which controls smelling and refining tn
the Uuited States, has refused to purchase British Columbia ores, and consequently the miners of silver and lead can
fiud no market for their output. With
this condition of affairs stating tbem
the face, il is uo wonder that the stocks
of mines, such as the Payne, the richest
silver-lead property of them all, are now
very much depressed; but if the government of Canada sees its way clear to
grant such aid as lo provide a home
market for silver lead, by the erection of
a refinery, to make the smelters independent cf the great American trust,
Silver-lend mining will again become a
prosperous industry, and stocks in such
properties should again reach promising
values. If eastern people wilh money (0
invest would put it directly into tbe
ground and uot into thc pockets of miuing brokers, lhey would stand some
chance of gelling tt bark with a goodly
amount addtd for interest. Tbere are
hundreds of properties, rich in mineral
aud easy of access, that are crying out
for development. It does nut require
any large expenJlture to show whether
or not these | ropertlea are of sufficient
value to warrant any further expenditure. To mine on syndicate basis,
where the money is put up as it is needed
for development work or to meet payments on purchase price, is lo my mind
au economical and profit producing
method to adopt. The unloading of the
hundreds of wild-cats on the unsuspecting eastern public, aud tbe consequent
dropping of an immense amount ot
money Bhould have the effect of bringing
these eastern people to tbeir senses,
and making tbem see that they have
gone entirely the wrong way about it to
make their fortune!: from the richly
laden hills of the great Pacific province
One hundred thousand dollars spent on
the floor of the stock exchange does uot
drive a tunnel one foot fartbei in a mining property iu British Columbia, and
consequently it does not assist in tbe
slightest way to make that one hundred
thousand dollar oue cent more valuable.
Of course, gambling and love are tbe
ouly two instincts that are universal.
As long as the public is willing to gamble
on mining stocks and go into it merely
with lhat end In view, tbey can be left
to look after themselves, and do as they
please about it. As a gamble they must
be prepared to lose their stakes, aud on
account of that loss tbey show themselves bnt poor gamblers If they complain and berate the country as one possessing uo mineral riches. They can be
dismissed, but tbose who invested In
mining stocks as a business, and put up
their money as a busiuess transaction
should now look about tbem for a means
to recoup themselves. The only way to
do this is to deal directly with the properties; to put money into tbe ground
Instead of into the pockets of the stockbrokers, and in time they will reap their
reward. Tbe investments thus far hsve
been altogether too precipitous, and
those putting up the money did not lend
(he smallest fraction of the business instinct that has made them successful in
other lines to the sale-guarding ol their
miniug investments. Iu this way they
have but themselves to blame; and
again, they cannot condem tbe country
on account of the fact that they foolishly
put up their money without knowing
what the returns would be. The country
is wonderfully rich, and if the money
spent an account of it is spent in it, investors may he time of large dividends
promptly realized.

Plenty of Improvements.
The Herald man asked Pred Pieper, of
Pieper Sl Currie, whal was going on iu
the way of improvements. "Lots,1- was
the reply. "Por instance, we are going
to paint Pred Duuionls house. Full-
james bruthers' residence, outside and
inside; painting, oiling and papering
John Hutchinson's residence; painting
W. S. Keay's house; papering John R.
Costigan's house; paiuling the interior
of tbe Baptist church; making iuiprov-
ments on P. McConnell'S residence and
store; repapering N. Hanson's house, recently vacated by W. S. Keay; painting
and papering Charles anJ Henry Parkers'
houses," and here Pieper stopped for
breath. "Oh. yes, I am also painting
five gilt signs for Mclnnes & Co's. diffier-
ent markets in South Bast Kootenay,
and start this week on painting and
decorating tbe big addition to P. Mc-
Mahou's hotel, in Moyie, besides a
bunch of work over to Port Steele."

PEOPLE OF THE  PROVINCE INVITED
Arrangements are being completed for
the two days sport that is to take

being left undone by the management
to make lhe two days the greates. carnival of sport ever given in South Bast
Kootenay.
Cranbrook is fortunately situated for
events of tbis nature, as she is located in
the center of a vast district, with excellent railway communications, aud consequently easy of access. It is the intention ofthe Turf Sl Athletic association
to mike tbe coming meeting, which is
the first spring meeting, a success, ami a

Cranbrook seem to be very much oul
nf It In the appropriations made. The
Perry creek road was an improvemeut
that was an absolute necessity to a
Urge miniug community, but It was
turned dowu. 8-JUtb East Kootenay In
general, and Cranbrook in particular,
got lt very much In the neck.
Some day the people of Cranbrook
will grow weary of paying Increased
taxes each year and getting nothing tu
eturn In the way of public expenditures. 	
There Is a corner In whiskey In New

A Fire In Jacksonville, Fla., wiped out

Too mnch gambling In wild-cats, too
much manipulating of stocka, too heavy

mining sections today.

HASUFAOTUttEBS LIFE
A Btat-tmout Eiiiibltiuic Piogrw . Stttblt-

It la always a, pleasure tu be able
to review the financial statement of
une uf our Canadian institutions, especially when that statement exhibits progress, stability and success.
The annual report of the Manufacturers Life, published iu tbis issue, is
one which shows such unmistakable
signs of careful management, combined with a spirit uf progress, that
pulley holders in it are to bo congratulated, ami Ihose proposing to
Insure in it need uu additional guarantee that their interests will lie well
protected.
In a year lu which competition was
very keen Uie company received applications for Insurances   amount ing
to over ?U,000,000, ami issued policies for $2,070,705, Tho applications rejected by the company us not
coming up to its medical standard
was tho large   proportion  of   ovor
10 per cent ol Die application received. The total volume of busl-
nese now uu Lho company's bonks Is
ovor $16,000,000, while.ilie cash Income frum premiums ami Interest,
Una increased frum $300,108 ln 1H04
tu |000,717 iu I'.mhi. During tl.e
year tin- company disbursed io pul
ieyhoklers, fur endowments, dividends, surrendered policies and
ileatb claims, the substantial sum uf
9127,605, added tu the reserve fund
fur thu security of policy holders
$838,405, and increased at the same
time its surplus by |67,363.n5.
A careful review of thc company's
business fur tho past six years wns
made by Prof. Dr. James Mills, in
which he showed that, wlillo in .1804
the assets of the company amounted
to $831,831, they now have reuu.u!
the largo figures of $2,270,171). As
an indication of Iheir excellent character, only some $500 of overdue interest existed on the Slst December
iu respect of the whole of them- The
expenses for several years past ha.vu
shown a gradual decrease, and in
1000 the chairman stated that Die
ratio of expenses was about 1*4 per
cent, less than it was two years ago.
ln every important particular, as
pointed out by Mr. It. L. Patterson,
it is shown that in tho past year
marked advances wero made in all
those essentials which tend toward
the building up of a sound and
healthy Institution. The cash income increased by over $84,000; the
assets by over $460,000; the policy
reserve by over $328,000; surplus ou
policyholders' account by over $330.-
000; and the insurance in force by
over $1,000,000. These are handsome increases, and speak abundantly of tlie managerial conduct of the
company's affairs by Mr. J. F. .lun-
kin, its* managing director.

who Bays:—"Before I began using Pr.
Williams' Pink Pills 1 was under lhe
nro of two doctors who told me my
trouble was developing into consumption. 1 wns very pale and
feeble; had no appetite and could
hardly stand on my foot, I was very
much discouraged and thought death
was staring me in the face. I had
often read of Dr Williams' I'ink Pills,
nnd finally decided to try them. After I had used three boxes my appetite was much better, and I felt a
littlo stronger. I. continued the uso
of tho pills for three months when I
felt fully cured. When I began using
the pills, I only weighed 02 pounds,
and when I discontinued thein my
weight had increused to 110 pounds.
I nlso gave the pills to my baby,
who was pale and sickly, and they
made him a bright, rosy, fleshy child.
I think there is no weak or sickly
person who will not find benefit from
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

It Is related of Mr. Hearst that for a
long time he edited The Journal with
his feet—that ls> In order to get the
perspective of tho make up, he laid the
paper on the floor nnd, polntlug out
with his toe, dictated as to whnt should
be killed, what changed ond whnt enlarged. Newspaper gossip hns It thnt
tn doing this one night he kept his foot
on nn editorial which should have been
killed nud which very soon caused
grievous trouble. Mr. Hearst Is but
85 years old. Ho has socialistic tendencies, but hns nevertheless been heard
to say thnt he regnrded Mr. Rockefeller as one of the best nnd greatest of
American citizens; this, too, whilo ever
pursuing the Standard Oil trust. Ills
explanation Is that such enormous
wealth must be kept In check and tbat
the magnates must understand that
tho people know all about them. Mr.

The human pincushion walked Into
the Hahnemann huspital a few nights
ugo and startled the doctors by asking
them to take two needles out of bis
heart. He Is Hugh Gloster, about -'*"'
yenrs old, Who gave as his residence
1U1S Wood street aud told the doctors
he makes a living by swallowing nails,
pushing pins and needles Into his chest
aud hammering tacks Into his che-tks
at a dime museum.
"You see, tonight, doc," said he when
the medical meu hnd recovered their
breaths, "I wns glvlu my regular show,
but I got careless when It came to the
niiicushion net. I had Just hammered
a dozen tncks into my face ond wo*
procecdlu to jam a couple of big needles Into my chest when they slipped lu
loo fnr. and I couldn't get them out."
"Are they In thero yet?" nsked the
doctors seriously,
"Yes," replied the human pincushion.
"I tried to Jock them out with a darn-
iu needle, but they're stuck In somc-
1 hin lutrd ami won't come out. I
thought mebbe yotise gents might like
to tnke n shy nt the Joh nnd get them
ont for tne."
Qloster was then laid out on tho op-
ending table, but considered It n huge
Joke when the doctor nsked if he wauted ether.
"Me ether?" he reiterated ln scorn.
"Why, sny, doc, -give me that big
butcher knife of yours there, and I'll
Jab it Into nny part of me and laugh
nt tbo samo time."
The doctors set to work nnd In a few
minutes found two good sized needles
sticking into tht» edge of the fourth
rib. They hnd slipped under the skin
ond caught Iu the cartilaginous matter
around the hone. The doctors took
them out with somo little difficulty,
Gloster laughing and directing their
movements.
When he had been served, the human pincushion sat up nnd entertained
the doctors In return "for their little
kindness." He drove tacks Into his
face until his features looked like
those of a mnn with smallpox, lit*
likewise ran long nails Into the calrcs
of his legs. Theu he snid ho "bad enjoyed the evening Immensely.'

There nre a couple of European dairies In Athens whose proprietors keep

who ape foreign manners. Your genuine
Athenian believes the gont to be the
proper milk producing animal, and he
regards tbe cow In this connection
nbout the same ns Americans do the
ronre.
The milkman takes his nnlmals with
him, Jangling tbeir bells and sneezing,

quality is unattainable by adult learners aud usually unpercelved by them.

STRONG TOWNSHIP SENSATION
The Restoration to Health of Wm.
Doeg Who Had Not Left His Room
in Years.— Rheumatism of the Worst
Kind Completely Cured.
(Sunbridge Echo.)
The Echo lias taken the trouble to
Investigate the circumstances uud cun
Vouch for the truth of tho following
Interesting story in iin every particular,
Almost everyone in this neighborhood knows Mr. Win. Doeg.    In 1878
Mr, Doeg moved from the Township
Of Osprey, in Gray County, to lot 19
in tho thirteenth concession of strung
Township He has since umde many
friends, und nil who know him speak
of him in the highest terms.
Some time ufter he came to this
part he was Htricketi with rheumatism. It gradually grew worse and
worse till for tho lost four yeurs he
bus been u confirmed Invalid, nnd ns
consequence bus not been seen in
town at ull. He hus sut night and
duy in liis choir, unable to move or
Ic a step for mouths. Tbe pain
never left him. It commenced ln hi-u
buck, nnd the torture he had to beur
win terrible. From his buck it would
sometimes move to other parts of bis
body, wis knees were fearfully painful at times. The truth is, that for
four long yeurs the poor mun did not
have a single moment's respite from
the racking of this dreadful disease.
Mr. Doeg says : "It makes me
shudder to look buck upon that awful tour yeurs. Even the thought of
It is dreadful. How I ever lived
through it I do not know, but 1
tliuuk Cod that he has at last restored me to health and strength with
nothing of the rheumatism left but
tho memory of it."
Mr. Doeg is a changed man. Halo
and hearty he now enjoys every moment of his new life to the full.
[low  did the change come about?
Tl.ii Is the question which Mr.DOSg
is most delighted to answer. He had
tried* the treatment of several physicians and had tiBed almost every medicine known as a cure for rheumatism, but be got no relief.
"I gave them ull a fair chance,
too," said Mr. Doeg to Thc Echo,
'but nothing seemed able to give me
even temporary relief. 1 grew despondent and despaired of ever leaving that dreadful palu behind me.
"One day I re** in a newspaper
thu testimonials of some who suid
they hud been cured of rheumatism
by Dodd's Kidney Tills. I hadn't
much faith In anything by this time,
but I sunt for one box of thc pills
and commenced. I noticed an Improvement and kept on, and look at
me now."
Mr. Doeg certainly doesn't look
like an Invalid now, and it is hard
for one who had not seen him in his
sick room to believe that six months
ngo he couldn't walk.
"Have you any objection to making and signing a written statement
of the whole thing for publication in
The Echo?" was nsked Mr. Doeg.
"None whatever. I will be glad to
do so, for 1 want every person suffering as I was with rheumatism to
know that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
cure them, and I do hopo that my
statement will bo rend by all such
unfortunates.
This is Mr. Doeg's written statement :—
For four years I sulTored excruciating torture, during which time 1 was
scarcely an hour free from pain. The
I rouble commenced in my back,
where it often remained stationary
for months, ond so intense wus tlie
pain that 1 could not lie down or
take rest, but hnd to sit night and
day in a chair. Tho pain would then
remove to other parts of my body
and when in my knees I was unablo
to walk, and conllned constantly ■
my room. I was treated for rheum-
tlsm by several doctors and also
tried many medicines without receiving any benoilt. Almost in despair 1
feared I would nover again experience thc plensure of boing freo from
pain.
Last spring my attention was directed to somo remarkable cures of
rheumatism effected by Dodd's Kidney PI Is, recorded in the public
prints. I procured a box, and soon
found that they wero doing me good,
so I kupt on, till now I can say 1
am a new man entirely free from
pain, and havo continued so for over
six months, being able to attend to
my dully duties on the farm and feel
strong nnd ublo for work.
I verily believo this great change
bus been eflectcd by the Ubc of Dodd's
Kidney Tills, and I think it my duty
to make this statement public for tho
benefit of nny one allllcted as I was.
Win. Doeg, Sunbridge.
This is a plain, unvarnished statement of fact ns wo have found it,
and every reader of Thc Echo, especially those who know how bad Mr.
Doeg was, will agree that It Is a case
without  parallel  in  the history    of
the community.

THE SUSPENDER SIGN.
unv War of 'iviiinir That a Maa la
Getting Old.
"There are many signs indicating
that old age Ls coming on a man," remarked .vn aged gentleman to u Washington Star reporter, "but one uf the
surest is when lit- llmls lhat his suspenders have u way uf slipping off the
shoulders. At first hu thinks there is
something wrong with the suspenders,
and he tries to remedy it by tightening tbem up. For awhile tliis cures
the trouble, but in a little while thero
is more dipping and he gets a new pair
.of suspenders. Even they slip off mid
nK(ke him feel uncomfortable, After
awhile he discovers tho trouble is not
with tlw suspenders but with himself.
As years roll on a rmui he g-eta more
nnd more round shouldered, and unless
he 1ms hia suspenders braced up by
connecting thuni wilh a band behind
the shoulders ho cannot keep thom up.
1 remember, some years ago, hearing
two very prominent men speaking of
tho fact thut they were getting old.
One of them was ut the time vice president of the United States nnd thc other
wus a leading senator. 'Whut makes
you think you are growing old?" one
of them SJike/1 of thc other. 'I found
H. out,' was the reply, 'as soon uh I discovered that my suspenders would not
stay up.' 'That has been my experience
also,' came from the questioner. Neither of the gentlemen referred to had yet
reached his seventieth year, but lhey
hud both discovered they were growing
oJd by thc samo incident in their lives.
I have never known it to fall. After
n man reaches sixty his shoulders grow
round steadily, and by the time he is
seventy-five his shoulders have lost all
their original size and formation."

CURED   BY   EXPERIENCE.
Wb-r   tlie   Dors   Art   Not   OoId*   to
Alaska.
A story was told on the dock recently in "Seattle of three young men who
were cured of the Aluskan fever In a
very practical manner, says the Post-
Intelligencer. They had concluded
that they would go on the Al-Ki, and
had purchased three berths.
"Now, you boys," suid the aged adviser, "want to remember that It's
pretty cold np there. It's pretty low
temperature here to-day, but nothing to
what you'll find on the Yukon. Now,
let me udvisc you. Before going to
that country you would better have
some experience. You may not like it
and then you will want to come back.
To-night promises to be pretty cold.
I have a tent at my house that I used In
Alaska. You boys take the tent out
on Queen Ann hill snd sleep in it tonight.
"It is now ten o'clock. Don't cat
anything until about eight o'clock this
eveuing. Then build a lire In your
tent, cook some beans and bacon, fix
up sonic unsweetened black COffOI and
make a meal. Until bedtime sit around
the fire smoking and chewing tobacco
and playing cards, and then fix up a
rough bunk ou the ground nnd sleep
until morning. If you enjoy it, go to
Alaska; if not, stay at home."
Thc boys caught up with the idea enthusiastically, and promised to carry
out thc programme. Whether lhey did
or not Is not known, but the other
morning three miserable-looking boys
canceled three tickets on the Al-Ki, and
as they humbly left the steamship ofllce
one was heard to say:
"Do you suppose it really gets that
cold in Alaska?"
HOW FLIES WALK UPSIDE DOWN.
Aa   EntomnlogUt   Advance*   m   New
Theory to Explain the Phenoia-raoa.
In our youth we were taught that flies
adhered to the ceiling or to the window
pane because their feet were provided
with suckers from which they hud the
power of exhausting the air, says the
Hartford Cournnt. This was disproved
by the fact that a fly could run up the
side of an exhausted glass receiver
when a vacuum under his feet would do
him no good, even if he had the power
of creating it, nnd by thc further fact
thnt n microscopic examination showed
that Ills feet were not provided with
suckers, but with multitudes of hairs
•from which exuded a fluid in minute
drops.    It wus then suggested Hint thb
