Some Reminiscences of lhe Early Days of
This Country.
Michael Phillipps, the well known
magistrate of Tobacco Plains, was In
Crailbrook the oilier day ntul during the
evening he favored the writer .with some
reminiscences of the early days of Bast
li is almost wonderful to think that
away back In the 6o's there were meu
here in the Kootenays who knew,tlie
country fur better than auy know it now,
men who luul followed every stream aud
creek from mouth to source, in search oi
the yellow uittiil. But snch was the
ease. In those emly days Mr. Phillipps
was ugent fur the Hudson Bab company
at ToboccQ.    at that time the company
still had posts on the Ameiican side of
the line, in Washington, Oregon and
Montana. These posts weie, however,
abandoned when ihe United Slates peer imient paid nn indemnity which [the
compauy | claimed as compensation.
Soon after lhe abandonment of the
American posts lhe post at Tobacco was
done away with and Mr. Phillipps left to
open a post for the company at Wild
Horse, where he supplied the miners of
(hose days with such uecesfaties ns
could be procured. Mr. Phillipps said
that the first day he opened up his stock
at Wild Horse he took in over fiSoo in
gold dust. The flour he sold came from
Chili, in South America, and brought us
lii-kr.li as j2 a pound. It wus .shipped in
sailing vessels to Victoria and then was
brought into Kast Kootenay by pack
train. Whiskey sold at $14 a gallon,
wholesale. The retailer then added
water and sold it at whatever he liked. D
Early in the 70's a customs house was
established at what is now Cranbrook,
the building, a little log house, still
stands near Mr. Baker's place. This
house was built by Mr. Phillipps himself and he lold of how he built the
chimney, which is a solid clay contrivance, baked hard.
There are very few men who know
Kast Kootenay like Mr. Phillipps. His
many years' residence here has not
weakened bim in his opinion of tlie ultimate success of this country. He snys
that Tobacco Plains is a wonderful farming country. Helms over 2000 bushels
of nats there this year on his ranch, and
with the new bridge Across tbe Ivlk he
will be able to deliver his product ut tlie
railroad with only about itt miles of
trail travel
Mr. Phillipps snid that he could not
help thinking that Cranbrook would be
a great town in the neai future.
Journalists and Member of Parliament Make
a Short Call.
On Assistant Manager Turn bull's private car which arrived in Cranbrook on
Monday morning from the west, were
Mr, and Mis. Frank Oliver, of Edmonton, Alta., George H. Ham, of the advertising department of the C. P. R. with
headquarters in Montreal, William
Treadgould, commissioner for the London Financial Journal, nml Dr. New*
bume, o( Lethbridge.
Mr. Oliver is member of Parliament
from Alberta and publisher ot the Kd
mon ton Bulletin, find has beeu mnking
the grand round.-* for pleasure nnd profit
combined. He has visited the coast
cities and most of the towns of West
Kootenay and will enlighten the readers
of lhe Bulletin upon the resources of the
Kootenays iu future issues of his paper.
Mr. Hani has charge of the literary
end of the advertising for the C. F, R
and has visited all of the new towns
throughout West Koolcnay, collecting
information and data for publication.
Mr. Ham has been through the mill as a
newspaper publisher, writer aud correspondent, and is well equipped for the
position which he now holds. Speaking
of his trip and the numerous towns
which he has visited, he snid to Tin.
llKK.u.n reporter lhat Cranbrook had
the prettiest townsite, barring Greenwood, of nny place along the route, and
from its location aud surroundings would
surely grow to a place oi importance.
Mr. TreadgOuld is just returning from
the Yukon country where be hns been iu
the interest of the London Financial
journal. The parly left for the east on
Monday afternoon.
The Pipe Une.
Al this writing the trench for the pipe
line to convey water lo the railway tank
ami to supply the variO'lfl buildings of
the company in Cranbrook, is finished
and ready for the pipe, which is expected to arrive any day. The line is something over 1000 yards tu length. Starting from the intersection of Baker street
with St. Joseph creek on the east side of
town, it traverses the length of Baker
street to the railroad, crossing the track
opposite the section house aud turning
south runs nearly parallel with lhe
track, past the depot building and on to
the site of the round house and water
The size of lhe main is to be four
inches. A pump house is to be erected
where the line taps t e creek aud a
steam pump installed for forcing the
water through the pipe, giving sufficient
pressure to raise the water into the second story of buildings and for supplying
the passenger coaches. It Is possible arrangements may be made with private
parties lo tap the main along the route
bul The Hekalh is not prepared to say
that this much-to be desired privilege
will be granted.

tlis Observations Along the Railroad
to Macleod.
But  the End Justifies the Means
and the Wanderer Will Return Home Happy.
The man who has lived in South Kast
Kooteitay anil failed to take lhe trip
from Craubrook to Macleod, bus been
lerelict iu his duty to himself and his
•ountry.    The Crows Nest t'ass line is
destined to be the scetdc route ncross
western Canada, and in the years thai
are to follow the completion of ibis rond
thousands will sing paeans of praise on
tbe grand panorama presented lo view
along that line. From the time when
jou leave lhe yards at Cranbrook, where
one catches fleeting glimpses of the ranges of both tbe .Selkirks and the Rockies, until the train rolls onto the great
plain where lhe town of Macleod is
located, it is one continuous display of
mountain scenery that is grand and sub-
W    W    ffl
But the Irlp just uow is not a jaunt of
inalloyed pleasure at all times. Unfortunately in our haste lo catch the train
we forgot our rabbit foot, and lo make
the hoodoo mote complete, had to shake
hands with Clint Campbell wheu we
reached the train. In consequence of
this combination, one that would have
caused the devil himself to smile with
pleasure, we met with all kinds of delays along the rome, fasted for hours
wheu we should have been feasting, and
dozed uncomfortably in our seat when
we should have been enjoying the blessed privilege of sleeping the sleep ofthe
innocent. But what of tt nil? We heard
men complain of the delay lhat ouly a
few months before had gone over the
route in a freight wagon with mud up to
the hubs and said nothing. This showed
the demoralizing effects of civilization,
aud demonstrated how quickly lhe people fall iuto the grasp of the ways of the
effete east.
fA      /A      •***
There was a jolly crowd aboard, how*
ever, nud notwithstanding the fact that
the train arrived at Macleod about six
hours late, even one had a most enjoyable lime. Among the party were Engineer Cranston and wife, who were
going to their home in Ottawa; Clint
Campbell.Dan McGilvary, Mra. Sprague.
of Fort .Steele, Mrs. McCrimmin and
children, Samuel Goldberg and his
watches, Harry Melton, Major General
Dixon, Mr. Griffin, Father Cocola and
Walsh, formerly with McCarty Brothers,
and others.

At Wardner the population turned out
lo greet us, consisting 0 f Frank McCabe,
Postmaster Palmer, J. T. Martin, M, H.
Murton and Willie Laugtree. There we
found the water tank in good shape, and
the tnmarack trees turning yellow. Below town a large gang of men were nt
work 011 lhe bridge, and we saw the lllll-
ier all cut ready for placing in the spans,
while the concrete work 011 the piers
was just being finished, leaving Ward-
the train proceeded along at a steady-
gait to the Sand Creek siding, nnd then
passed Cranston, the town made known
by the two hundred feet of tunnel run
by the Bishop boys nnd the talk about
the Blue Grouse nnd Empire claims.
And, by the way, 1 learned en route, that
Ince the Halls Mines Company had
threw up the Langley option becnuse the
brokers failed to deliver the rest ot the
goods included iu tlie contract, j. e., the
Major Steele property, for which $40,000
had beeu offered and $50,000 finally bid,
and refused by our esteemed and venerable friend, Major McDonald, that lhe
Mcintosh syndicate of I,e Roi fame, had
had an expert on the ground and would
probably secure control of both properties. Just as the train turned the corner
au attractive shack came iu sight, and
there was Ben Tliiel looking out of the
window, reminding us of lhe pictures of
Napoleon on the Island of St. Helena or
Dreyfus on Devil's island. But they say
Ben is iu for the winter, and has a good
thing in a promising claim. Elko was
the next stopping place, the lown that is
being presented by Sam Proctor, of lhe
Kootenny Valley Lands Company.    It
a beautiful site, and the railtoad is
putting up some fine buildings. The
celebrated falls ofthe Elk river are right
in town, and there is euough power gong to waste there to operate every mine
iu South East Kootenay. Proctor says
he is going to have a good town there,
aud Proctor has a silent way of making
good anything be says ; therefore a few
dollars in Elko property is pretty sure to
bring back several dollars lo the good.
Charley Bishop, of Bishop Hill, got iu
here, aud he told us some good things
nbout the mining property about Cranston. He says the Langley boys have
struck it all right in their tunnel, and
that there is no doubt that the Major
Steele property is one of the best copper
propositions in British Columbia today.
Mill Town, or the place where the great
C. P, R. saw mill is located, was the next
point of interest. We were prepared,
from the numerous reports, to see a large
institution, but we did not expect to see
a mill of such prodigious dimensions as
lhat one. In that vast wilderness of hills
and limber thnt mill looms up like an
Egyptian pyramid lu the desert. Such
a building is a unit vol, aud when one
considers Hint the capacity Is 100,000 feet
per day, it is theu possible to form some
idea of the immensity of the plant. Mr.
Charleston, who js iu charge, told us lhat
the machinery had just been placed iu
Operation and that within a week everything would be in ship-shape order. Dan
McGilvary had just completed the dam,
and it will remain n monument to his
skill and the audacity of ibe mill company. A mile and a half further up the
mountain, until the train passed into a
land-locked basin in the snow capped
peaks on every side, was l-'ernie, known
In earlier days as Coal Creek. Here lies
the hopes aud expectations of a great
company, and already those hopes nre
being realize!. Since July nearly too
buildings have beeu erected, ami already
the town is assuming metropolitan airs.
Two large hotels are in course of construction and the  front street is already
built up with a row of attractive cottagcB.
Here the train stopped for dinner, nud
we had lime to eat and also to meet several old friends, including John Scott of
the Bank of Commerce, and Harry Cummins and his assistant, Mr, I.utcli, who
are doing some importnut suiveying
work. The place looks prosperous, and
it is estimated that lhe mines, the coke
ovens and the mill will give a working
population of 1500 by the end of another
•W tf» *•"
From Fertile east the trip was beset
with vexatious delays, and it took us
from noon to dark to make eight miles.
As a result we passed the famous loop
after dark, and failed to see its picturesque grandeur, or hnve an opportunity
to marvel at the great engineering feat
presented. From Bull Head east lhe
track is iu excellent shape, and the engineer did his best to make up the time
fd      tA      fA
We ariived at Haneyville, the C. P. R.
offshoot of Macleod, about 11.30 nnd
took conveyances for a ride across the
prairie to the old town. It was a hustle
and a rustle to find a bed, as the towu
is filled wilh people. Among the first
to extend greeting was that prince of
fellows, Major Bowles, who carries with
his wholesome handshake the sunlight
of his southern nature. Contractor W.
T. Reid touched us on a tender spot by
asking after our dog, and then seveial
others came forward and wanted to k now
if we were the owner of "that Cranbrook dog?" So you see. it pays lo own
a dog that makes friends for his master,
ffl     IW     W
This morning, after a glorious night's
rest, we arose aud pulled up the window
shades. For a moment we were startled.
Almost as far as the eye could reach was
an unbroken prairie, which, to one who
had lived iu the mountainous country of
the Kootenays, seemed strange indeed.
But, off to the west, where the silvery-
clouds dipped down to the suu burnt
grass, there was a break in the scene.
Nature, w ith her artistic hand, had placed
there vast monuments of the world's
past, and draped them wilh curtains of
while, bringing to mind our first view of
the far-famed While City of the Chicago
World's exposition. Today we have
seen Macleod. It is a busy and prosperous city, and although this morning the
residents were all strangers to me, tonight those I have met are my friends.
I found Inspelor Saunders at the barracks, a beautiful place at the edge of
the town, where life as a member of the
mounted police is made a pleasure rather
than a burden. Capt. Saunders, in that
gentlemanly manner characteristic of
him, made our visit to the post nu enjoyable one, and our leave-taking a regret.
C. E. D. Wood, solicitor and editor of
the Gazette, a Virginian by birth, a Canadian by adoption and a prince among
gentlemen by nature, extended lo the
wanderer many courtesies. But I musl
lose. I almost forgot that I was taking
a vacation, so I will go 011 a strike right
here, and tlop. F. E. S.

a public nature could he handled aud
the will of the people expressed, there
•assembled at lhe rooms kindly furnished
by Manager Smythe, of lhe Bank of

of Craubrook.
J. W. II, Smythe was chosen to act as
chairman   and H, T, Brown was named
as secretary,   The chairman stated the
object ofthe meeting, as outlined above,
when a general discussion followed as lo
the best method of procedure. Afler
evcrnl of those present had expressed
themselves upon the matter, ttrscetued
to be ilie concensus of opinion that an
association should be formed, similar to
a duly Incorporated board of trade,"with
a complete set of officers. Therefore the
following resolution was presented'and
passed unanimously:
Moved by A. Leitch, seconded by Jas.
Ryan, that we, the citizens of Cranbrook,
now assembled, form ourselves into an
association to be known as the Cranbrook Bo ird of Trade, and that a committee of three be appointed at this
meeting to consult wilh those of the citizens and properly owners mil present
and get their views in regard to same,
and lhat the election of officers takes

Oil 'motion of Mr Ryan, the chair
was authorized to appoint the committee as expressed iu the resolution. The
chairman named Messrs. A. Leitch, A.
W. McVittie and J. W. II. Smythe Jas
said committee.
On motion of Mr, McVittie the com*
mitice already named were instructed to

association, ascertain cost of same and
report at the meeting Thursday evening.
Consideral informal discussion then
followed as to the scope of the organi/.a-
tion, what matters it would naturally
be called upon lo take up and act upon
at once, etc., but as the association was
not yet duly formed and it being desirous that 1 more representative expression
of views be had, no definite action was
taken upon any ofthe suggestions called
ont. It being understood that Mr. L.
A. Hamilton, land commissioner for the
C. P. R., who are largely interested in
the townsite of Cranbrook and her general welfare, would arrive in lhe city on
Wednesday evening, the committee
proposed meeting that genlleinau and

the purpose of installing a rteam plant
for sinking upon the lead. The machinery has not yet arrived but it is expected
within a few days.
A wagon road is altout completed

the North Star property next spring.
Several Pieces of Dfrt  Casafe Hands Dnr-
in-£ the Past Week,
Colonel Bra j ton is making bis presence felt as temporary agent for the sale

hardly got the "hang of things." Following are the names of parties who
have purchased lots during the past
Robert McNei', lol S. in block 91.
David L. Mclntoaiiney, lot 7. in block
91; and a brother of Mr. Mclntoinmey,

an option on lots 11, 12 and 13, in block
91, and Mr. Bremner has picked out lots
t, 2, 3, A, S sntl 0. in block 4i, and will
doubtless close a deal.
Telegraphic correspondence with the
party in lhe east owning lot 16, in block
94, the triangular shaped lot on the corner of Baker and Cranbrook streets, by
a party contemplating its purchase, elicited the facl that the property could be
had for $1300, The deal has not vet

Tenders Asked far a Structure to Cost
Aboul SUM.
Tenders have been called for for the
erection of a Presbyterian church in
Cranbrook. The building is to situated
ou the comer of Armstrong avenue aud
Lewis street, and will be 16x36, It will
cost when quite complete about $1250,
but as there is not so much as that in
sight, lhe church will not be finished at
once. It will, however, be put iu a condition for service to be held in and the
finishing touches will be put on as the
funds come in. About $1100 will be spent
on it immediately. Of ibis amount nearly $500 have been promised by friends of
the cause in Cranbrook ; $500 have been
loaned to the Congregation from a very
useful fund connected with the church
called the Church and Manse Building
Fund. This is to be repaid in easy instalments. The remaining fioo it is
hoped will be forthcoming as the building is being put up and in connection
witb the opening services. Mr. George
Bremner is the treasurer of the congregation aud will be glsd lo rective subscriptions.
Tenders are to be iu by 4 p. til. tomorrow I Friday).

Mr. Orosgroy,, In suhatoiioo Mr, Oros*
groy lold tlie following story of liis ill-
iii'ss;—"lit April, I80fi| 1 was laid up
lor seven weeks wilh typhoid fever,
and afler I reenveivd from tlio fever my
right log bogau to swell. It J was vory
painful indeed, and 111 a few weeks it
was three times its natural size—nearly as large as that telephone pole.1" and
ho pointed to a stick of timber tou in*
dies Iu diameter, "Nothing the dootor
did gave nn* any relief, ami I consulted
another with the same result. I Buffered for nearly live months when I
noticed that the swelling began to decrease and Ifbticame hopeful of recovery. But the Improvement only continued for n short time and then the
swelling became greater and two big
ulcere formed on the inside of the leg
abovo the ankle. These ulcers were
right through to the bone and you eould
put thut much into them," and Mr.
Orosgroy indicated ou his thumb au object nu inch in length. "For tho noxt
year aud a half I was treated by four
or five doctors but my leg and the ulcers were as bad as ever. Tlie doctors
pronounced the, disease phlebitis or iu-
flnmation of the veins. They didn't
seem to kuow what to do for me, however, and I despaired of getting well."
Mr. Crosgrey's relief eame in a strange
manner, almost by chance one might
say. Ho tells of it tliis way:—"I had
a relativo living near Tccswuter, named
William Baptist. He heard of my condition and sent word to me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. His reason for
recommending them, he stilted, was because they had cured him of serious
trouble in both legs, when nil else had
failed. I decided to try them and in
less than five weeks tho ulcers were
completely healed and the swelling in
my legs disappeared. Tho ulcers never
returned nud my leg is just nbout ns
sound us the other oue. I kuow that
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills alone cured
me when doctors and all others medicines failed and I nm willing that the
details of my Unless nud cure ho made
known." Mr. Orosgroy who is 41
years of age, is now at work every day.
The nature of his work, that of lifting
heavy bags of tlnur and feed, is proof of
his complete lvoiiverv. He is a life
long friend of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and never lets an opportunity pass of
speaking a good word for them.
The above statement was sworn to
before the undersigned at Port Hope,
on the 17th day of Pebrnnry, 1808,
, Herr "Unilnrwear."
A young German engineer whoso

MttallUlBf Wood.
A method of melitlli/ing wood, one
by whleh it bOOOlUOS very solid uud io
idstnut nnd assumes the uppenraiieu of u
true metallic mirror, is described in the
Turin Monde wilh much dot nil. Briefly
tlm wood is flrst imiuom'd for throe or
four days, us uiay bn its degree of per
lueability, in a caustic alkaline lye, nnd
thoneo passed immediately Into a hath
of hydrosnlphito of calcium, to which
is added, ufter 34 or tit) hours, concou
tinted solution of sulphur lu caustic
potash. The duration of this bath Is
nbout 48 hours, nnd Its temperature is
from &r> to R0 degrees. Finally the wood
is immersed for 80 or 40 hours in a hot
solution of ncotato of load. Tho wood
prepared iu this maimer und aftor bav
ing undergone a proper drying at i
moderate temperature acquires under a
burnisher of hard wood a polished snr-
faco und exhibits a very brilliant metal
liu luster—a luster still further increased in its attractiveness if the surface of
tho wood bo rubbed thoroughly, In the
first placo, with a pleco of lead, tiu or
aiihi uud afterward bo polished with a
glass or porcelain burnisher.

"You wero nbout," bIio observed, "to

".Surely," sho wild, "you won't throw

"Very likely," ho answered quietly.
"That's right," sho pursued, "No

at tho Grent Bear and think of you."
"Hnvo you been to any theaterslatoly?"

"If I left tho service," ho urged, "we

"You'd bo so content if you did," sho
said, "nnd our castle in Spain would bo a

wouldn't do. I'm sorry, but it wouldu't

"Oh, I soeoloprly enough," ho said hit-
torly. "I hope thnt some day you'll havo

"Kothlngt I'm afraid."
"Very yell. May I at least have nil tho
other iliuiivs tonight:"
"Yes, if you wnnt them new," the
young WOUian said Sadly,
The young man and young woman on-
Joyed themselves Immensely tor tlio rest of
tho evening, although they Imagined
themselves hrnrlbroken. Thu young man
snid several things which he considered
really eynlcal, and tho young woman wallowed in n sense of iimrtjntoin.  They said
goodi-y iu a cold morning light, and she
allowed  him to kiss her.    Tho kiss they
regarded ns a kind of sacrament
Thu angel uf death, with his habitual
tl Un ■■.ran I nf the fitness of things, disturbed
the oven courso bt tho affair. The young
man hod possessed a mercantile cousin,
nnd the cousin, having gone two or three
dnys beforo to n land whero niemuitllo
possessions nro rigidly •jxeludi'd, had left
tho whole of his property to thu young
man,    His reasons fur this unox-.H'-i'tod net
uf generosity woro probably that ho imd
Hover met the young man, whleh, til view
of the old gentleman's temper, was an nil-
vniitiigo, and alto tbnt the latter cultivated
martial aspirations underneath li Ih iner-
eniitile soul, even to the extent of being nt
one time a eaptalli of volunteers, OUtT"TO1
garded the young tnun with favor, as being tho only militarysjjoolmon of the family.
Therefore when tin* young limn roso
from Ids brief lloopon llm following morning lie found a Bolloltor'B IcIterViforinlng
hlm of his good fortune, At Ilrst the Information appeared too good to bo true,
lm! tho additional Itiformatloti 1 tint ho
was at liberty to draw on the llrm for any
reasonable amount put tlm truth Itoyuml
question, Tliu foot that he was rich, portentously rich) nt tlrst Hlli-d him with nn
lnwiuo desire to shout, Ah a silent relief
to his mental tension he took his slippers
off and throw them at the door. Then he
put Ihem on ngnin and lit n pipe. All his
lifo tho young man hnd been in straitened
clrcumstnnccs. He hnd never had enough
ponkot money at school or a satisfactory
nllowanuo since. Now he folt thnt ho possessed no single di'sin* which ho eould not
satisfy. Visions of Infinlto possibilities
roso before him. Ho ovon looked at his
plpo with contempt.
"And now," ho said to hlmsolf triumphantly, " I shall tie able to marry Kitty."
Oddly onough, tho young woman had
not stood ln tho forefront of tho possibilities.   Ho noticed tho fact with something
of a start. Romance waa not nt its strongest ln his mind thnt morning, because tho
kind person who provided the dance had
also provided n pnlu pink champagne,
which punished oven tho most abstemious
with thu after horrors of excess.
"Yes," ho Insisted to himself, ''I shall
marry Kitty. Not much fear of boing poor
now. "
Then his mind wanderud away again to
thu moro inanimate possibilities. Should
ho stay In tho sorvlcu or not? Ou iho
whole, ho thought he would for awhile,
but ho would bu Inclined to exchange into
a cavalry regiment.. A fow rucu horses!'
Yes. Hu had Just begun to uoiiteiuplnto
himself leading In the Derby winner when
hu again returned to tlie young woman.
"Yen," liu said Ui himself, "of courso
that's tlio best part of it." As a matter of
foot, it was not at all tin* best part of it.
Marriage In A way means tho end nf
youth, and the young man wns just l'i ter-
lug on a new World which ho had nover
known beforo. lt is impossible to be But-
lsfaotorily yonng on a limited Income, ,
Thu rosy dreams that came trooping before
his eyes were not domestic To bo adequately domestic you must be a littlo tired
of other things—not necessarily vicious
things, but you must know tlio suushiuu
to upprocinto the shade. Half against hla
will the dream pictures told him this. Hu
wanted, though bo would not admit it iu
hlmsolf, to enjoy his own sweet will with- ;
out nny clog.
These things Were hidden os yet from 1
anything but tho young man's subconsciousness. As ho finished dressing slowly :
hu decided to go at once after breakfast
and tell the young woman ef his happl- j
mm   Tho thought ought to hnve BUggeflt*
od a  triumphal  procession, but only pru-
Hcnti'd Itself us a logical und obvious proceeding;   also, )f  his   feelings  I mil  been
what hu imaglnud them to Iw, he would
bnvo babbled out his goad fortune to ihu
other late comers ut breakfast.    Ho 1**-
lievud thnt Lt was romantic to reserve the
news for tho young wuiniin, but tliu belief
wus artificial,
Hu fouud tho young woman Bitting in
the sunshine on tho lawn. She was look*
lllg! too, preposterously healthy nml happy, uomddorlug tho circumstances. Ilu
was nblu tu explain quite intelligibly what
had happened, and tlm young woman listened and watched him quietly. In some
ways bo was a very transparent young
man, and t>hu wns a young woman of perception,
"So now," ho concluded, "of courso wo
enn bo married just us soon as ever wo
"Married? You want to marry mo!"
sho said dreamily, as though ho had suggested a new idea, which as a matter of
fact was tho case.
"Why, what's tho matter, Kitty? Aron't
you glad?" ho asked.
"I'm vory glad that you'll bo rich," Bho
answered, with n smile. "What are you
going to do?"
"Oh, havo n good timo generally I" ho
"A good timo generally—generally,"
sho repeated slowly.
"What Is tho matter, Kitty?" ho Inquired in a puzzled way. "I don't understand. "
"I'm not suro that I do yet," sho said.
"Surely aftor last night''— ho burst out.
"Last night," sho said, "I refused you
because you wero poor, nnd last --bight
wns years ago to you."
"You surely dou't think I'm such a cad
as to let that mako any difference. Of
course I know you were right last night."
"No, I know you're not a cad, .Tack.
Vou happen to bo a gentleman. That's
what complicates things so," she said.
"I don't understand at ull," ho snid.
"You'ro very, very young, Jack," she
answered. Ho did look very young that
morning lu his new aspect of a possible
"I'm no younger thnn I wns Inst night,"
ho urged.
"If I said yoB"— sho went on quietly.
"If you Baid yes? Don't you caro for me
still?" ho asked.
"Wait a moment," sho answered. "If I
said yea, wo should bo married soon. Then
wo should settle down to a quiet, humdrum, unexciting lifo. Do you roalizo
thnt? Next year you wouldn't want to
dance with me nil the evening."
"Thon do you mean you don't caro for
mo?" ho asked.
"No, I don't caro for you," sho said deliberately. Sho had watched his eyes for
"tbo light thnt never was on sea and
land," but It bad died away since tho
night beforo. "And I'll tell you why.
Last night I was a great deal to you. I
should hnvo been tho prettiest thing inn
life that wasn't very pretty. Now I'm
only a very, very- small part of your life.
Tbat wouldn't satisfy mo."
"Surely you don't mean what yon sny?"
he pleaded,
"Oh, yes, I do," sho said. With a little
laugh. "I shouldn't boudoquato, nnd you
wouldn't be adequate It wouldn't do,
Beliovo mo, Jack, it wouldn't. Wo like
each other, but we don't love each other.
Don't let's bo foolish any moro. Lot tho
dead past bury Its dead. You'vo a lot ot
arrears of enjoyment to draw, and you'd
lienor go away and play now without
making too much of this."
"I never thought"— ho burst out
"No, Jack, I don't think you ever did,"
she said, "or you'd agree with inc. 1 know
you want ine just for the moment, because
I'vo said UO, but that's thu only reason.
Run away and play, tfoodby, Jack. I'd
rather you'd go now."
"Kitty I" ho exclaimed.
"Qoottby, Jack," the young woman
wild, with a smile, holding out her hand.
The young man took It and strodenWay
angrily. I'or several days ho said evil
things to himself about the young woman
nnd decided that she was not worth caring
for. Soon afterward ho decided that he
never had cared for her. After another
brief interval he camo to the conclusion
that she wns an unusually nice girl nnd
that some day perhaps, if lie met her, hu
might try his lurk again.    When tho young
woman married anotborman, ho felt sorry
for her nud tho other man, being under
the impression that he held a permanent
Ilrst mortgage on her tifTectlouts, which
was n mistake, because thu only mark

working his way up tbe car punching

yot half through tbe smoker when he
came to uu Inebriated man wearing u
wide Blouch hnt and brown overalls.
Tho man hud all eorts of patriotic ornamentation attached to his person. Tin-

beside him was paiiitul red, white ami
blue and half  a  yard  of   hunting was
wound  around   his  sombrero.   Three
Dewey buttons were iu his ooat and a

"Tickets!" said tin oouduotor,
"Remember ihe Maine 1" the passenger promptly responded.
"What's lhat?" tho official inquired,
not exactly understanding,
"Cuby Hbbur uu prosperity," tbe
mun in the soat returned.
"(iive mo your ticket, please," tho
conductor said, ignoring tho tlurid re-
murks of the other.
The passenger looked surprised.
"Tickets?" he repeated ufter the conductor. "What do 1 want of a ticket?
I expect this hero old road tu recognize
patriotism un love of country. I'm goin
in to Grand Island. Pass nu, mister.
Hurray for old Bill Shafter I"
"You'll havo to give me a ticket or
pay your fare," the conductor coldly
informed him.
"Pay fare? Thunder und hailstorms I
Ain't you got no patriotism? In this

Nobody stirred to help him. Tho conductor reached for the bell rope.

Carious Italian Clfari.
A curious cigar seen in tlie Italian
quartor of tho eity, whero it is made
and sold, is about ?jj inches iu length
aud very slender, being not much bigger around than an all tobacco cigarette,
aud almost uniform in sizo for the
greater part of its length. At the cud
that i.s placed in tho mouth Ibis cigar is
made around a pieco of straw au inch
and a half in length, which projects
abont a quurtor of an inch clour of the
tobacco. When tho cigar is mado, a
broom splint long enough to reach almost to tho lighting end of tho cigar is
run through the straw, and the cigar is
made around tlmt. Tho broom splint is
cut long enough so that n quarter or
half an inch of it projects clear of the
straw mouthpiece.
Wheu tho cigar is to bo smoked, the
broom splint is withdrawn. Tho opening through it where the splint was
makes tho cigar draw freely, and the
section of straw at thu slender end
keeps tho cigar open thero. These
cigars, mado of strong, dark tobacco,
are sold at retail for u cent each.—New
York Sun,
Cuinmerre or the Philippine**.
The commerce of theso islands has
been estimated by somo authorities ut
$60,000,000 a year, but it is probably
mueh greater, tho chief exports being
sugar, tobacco mid hemp. Uf Manila
cigars the yearly product isseveral hundred million, one factory alono employ'
ing 10,000 hands, and of Manila hemp
tho yearly product is probably 200,000
tons. One factory iu Manila produces
40,000,000 cigarettes in a single year.

after some talk with the man found
him almost overwhelmed with sickness

I shall send you some pills which 1 am
