to Ould Commissioner Griffith, at Gol

about 10 I first saw Lascelles wheu he
cane to tbe new bouse where we were
working, and talked sensibly. He called
Lambert out and started to talk about
H. Maedonald. About 11 he left on
horseback and did uot come back until
10 at night. Had no horse, hat or coat
and waa drenched to tbe skin, and appeared wild. The Chinaman gol him

also said, "I'll count 25 and if you don't
come I'll go after you." Jack then got
up and went out. Lascelles called two
or three times lo knuw who opened the
door. He got no answer. He then said
he would shoot the first man be met, 1

the party to halt. Tncy did so, and engaged bim in conversation, and by using
a little diplomacy succeeded iu gelling

Hr. Lascelles is a young Bngllshmatt,
worth probably nearly #300,0.0 He came
to North Kast Kootenay about nine
years ago to find a place where he could

selected tbe land where he afterwards
built bis borne, on thi* opposite side of
the lake from tbe government road, so
to he away froui people travelling
back aud forth, and even punted his
bouse green, su that there would be uu
contrast between it and Ihe grass nud
trees, for the purpose, nn be stated, to
prevent people from looking over nt it
from the road.
There are several people in Cranbrook
who know him well They nay lie was
full of eccentricities, aud alwnys ban
heen a very peciiliai individual over since
he came to the country. He made lew
friends, hut for those whom be showed a
liking, tbere waa nothing he would not
do for them, lie lived with two Chinese
servants and a companion. To bis servants he uever spoke, and they lived lu
abject fear of hia peculiar tetnpcrmetit.
Although having a liberal supply of
money, he dressed lu the plainest fash*

towards women, and would uot have one

There seems ta be no doubt among
those wbo have kuown bim well, lhat
his mind finally gave way under the
life he was leading, aud the tragedy is

was able lo go about, again, bul was
far from being the man I had been
before. For years 1 Buffered almosl
continually from pains in the back;
and was unable to lift any heavy

bad thai I was unable to work al
all, and I wns often confined to thn
house for days at a timo. During
this time 1 was treated by four different doctors, but tliulr treatment
did not seem to do me any good.
They told me that owing to the injury to my spino my back would always be weak. Seeing thai thu doctors were unable to help me, and
having rend of the many cures resulting from the use of Ur. Williams'
Pink Fills, I decided to give them a
trial, and procured a supply. Very
soon I could see that they were relieving me. a little, and this encouraged me to continue their use. In all
I took about ten boxes, and when
they were finished my back was as
strong as ovor, The pains that had
racked my body for so many years
had entirely disappeared, my back
felt as strong us before the injury,
It is now two years since I dslcon-
tinued thc use of the pills and in all
that time I have not had an ache or
pain,so that I may safely say thnt
my cure is permanent. I would advise all similar sufferers to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, for knowing
whut they have dono for me, I um
confident that thoy cannot be less
successful in other cases."
These pills are sold by nil dealers

Three thousand years ago the 11' hn-w»
were under the dominion of the Philistines. Then arose perhaps tho ntrangeBt
hardship ever imposed upou a subject nation by a conquering one. The Scriptures
themselves tell tha story in these graphic
"Now there was ao smith found
throughout all the land of Israel, for thc
Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews inula'
them swords or spears; hut all the Israelites went down to the Philistines to
sharpen every man bis coulter, and his
ax, and his nniltux."
Thus thc Hebrews were obliged to travel from 100 to 200 miles to find a smith,
a hardship that is quite inconceivable today, when tho country Bwarms with
them. If there hnd never been any artisan smiths there could he no surname
Smith today. And whut would it mean
to us If there were no longer Smiths (by
name) In our land? It would mean ▼*•
cauclcn In the professors' chairs and upon
the Judicial bench; it would thin the
ranks of the luwyers, ministers nnd doctors, ot the mcrchnnts- brokers und mini*
ufaeturerH, and of the railroad, commercial and tlnnnclnl mnirnntes; it would
diminish the number of ncholarH, reform-
cm and phlloHophcrs and deplete thtt
ranks of sailors, soldiers, farmers, mc-
chHnli*s and all the rent of thu great laboring world; thc trumps, begjfurs and
Jnllhlrds would ho leas often met with,
and crnukB, politicians, drunkards and
criminals fewer in number. In fact, pot
a runk or gradation of our whole social
system but would bo affected. Some
genius of computation has Qgured out
that If all the tuitlea of earth were enrolled there would be an nrmy of 7,000,-
000 Smiths among them. Allowing the
feminine Smiths to be as numerous, ths
world bas 14,000,000 living Smiths.
Whether the uuinbor be as prodigious as
this or not there is no question that It
runs Into the millions, A family so numerous and so universally iafiltcred
through every caste and class commands
at least tbe respect due recognized magnitude and aggregated power.
Literally smith means smiter—1.1.( -aaa
who smites or hammers. And la old
days when every bit of metal, copper,
irou, silver, gold or brass, bad to be
pouuded and hammered by mighty
strokes Into armor, tools, plate, utensils
and Implements, there was need of
many smlthers, These smlthers, or
smiths, were not men of brawn alone;
they bad to possess the ready brain and
skill to sharpen alike aa implement, repair an armor or shoe a horse. Theirs
was an honest and lucrative trade, and
every road, street and hamlet had Its
smiths. Not only were there many
smiths, bnt different branches of smitb-
ery abounded, and thus numerous compounds and derivations of Smith came
Into existence. Among these are Smith-
er, Smlthkins, SmlOmon, Arrasmlth, Ar-
rowsmitb, Goldsmith, Silversmith, Coppersmith, Steelsmltb, Locksmith, Hammersmith, Hocksmlth, Hockersmltn,
Drakesmitfa, Forccsmith, Bakeremith,
Wildsmlth, Wlntcrsmltb, Hoffsmlth,
Smitham, Bowersmlth, Worksmltb,
Watcbsmltb, Kleinsntith and Smithdeal.
Strangest of all these perhaps is Few-
smith. Sometimes, to distinguish several
Smiths In one street or hamlet, a Christian name was incorporated witb th«
usual name. Thus came Into usage
Smlthpeer. Hillsmitb, Hclensmlth and
Incidentally tt may be mentioned that
other languages have their Smiths. Germans have numberless Schmlts and
Schmidts, tbe French bave Le Fevres,
tbe Spaniards Guneulus, the Russian
Smtthtowsktea and the Irish havo Gavan
and Gowan, each meaning Smith, and
McGarsn and McGowan, meaning the
son of a smith.

Persons visiting Niagara falls ia summer often have their attention attracted
to the queer shapes taken on by tbe
trees which grow immediately around tbe
great cataract. A trio of sturdy old
trunks which must be every bit of GO
years old, nud yet are graced witb a tuft
of foliage which seems to belong to a sapling of a few summers, stand near the
American falls.
A visit to tbe falls in winter will explain tbo reason for thc grotesque appearance of thc trees. The mist thrown
up by the falling water settles on the
trees In such Quantities that tbey often
assume the appearance of Icebergs Btrand-
ed high nud dry on the banks. As the
weight of the Ice Increases the weaker
boughs break away under the burden,
and after a very cold season the tree
emerges from its plating of Ice shorn entirely of Its branches. The trunk alone
stands, and when touched by spring's
wi.nn brenth it shoots out Into a very
close and compact bunch of leaves, which
looks ridiculous on the top of such s

Opportunity to nee three church collections taken up lu rapid Biiccession. He
bad asked tu he directed tu a characteristic country church in an outlying vil-
lace. As a result he wcut by train from
Lcydeu to a little plate with au un- ,
prunuunceable name, where there wan a
church as severe in ita simplicity as tho [
meeting bouses of colonial Now England.
It resembled them, too, iu ita chilliness,
for there was no attempt Bt warming it,
and the peoplo were dependent upon foot I
Btoves of tbe old fashioned type ihat was
beginning to go out or vogue in America
a hundred yeurs ago,   Several scoro of j
these little boxes Btood In tbo church en- i
try, neatly piled against the wall, ready
to be filled with smoldering peat and sun-
piled io tbe worshipers as tliey cume In.
When the time for the collection nr-
riveil, a man started out from the railed ,
off space before tha pulpit, whieh space
res occupied by tbo elders, ami with n
black pocket ai tho end of an eight font
polo proceeded to his task. With this
accessory he could tench clear to the end
f a pew, only lie bud to be careful not to
hit some worshiper With lho bnlt end
while making bin Short reaches.
Everybody In tbe congregation put In
something, and tha collector mads n tittle low evory time a coin jingled in tbe I
pocket. He had gone about half way
round wben another elder started out
with another bag ami pole. The writer
wondered he had not started before. His
purpose, however, was not to help his fellow collector finish the work. Instead,
he Started jum where the other had bo-
gun and passed tbe Un-- to tha same people, aud every one dropped in a coin as
faithfully ns he bad done the first time.
Nor was this thc cud, fur the second
collector had no sooner got a good start
than a third stepped out from the pulpit
front with bag and pole aud went as industriously over the ground as thc two
others had done. He was just ss successful as Ids predecessors.
Things wero getting BCtious. Tbe
stranger bad put silver in tho first bag,
but fearing that thc collection might continue indefinitely he dropped copper
coins In the second and third bags and
was not a little relieved when he saw
that the rest of the men In tho elders'
seats kept their places.
Later ho learned tho secret of the process. The first man collected for the minister, the second for the church, the third
for the poor. As each member of the
congregation contributed ono Holland
cent to each bag it seemed as If a littlu
calculation might have saved much collecting. The Bum of the three deposllu
would In our money bo about ono atul
one-fifth cents for each peraou.
At tbo moment when tho bags began to
nans the minister gavo out a hymn, but
the congregation finished singing it long
before tho collection was over. There

11 'When In doubt let her nloue' is our
first and most Important maxim in regard to shoplifters," sold a New Orleans
floorwalker ot long experience. "It Is
better to let a thousand guilty people es-
capo and carry off our property with
them tban to run the risk of making ono
mistake, and wheu you hear of a woman
being actually taken into custody you may
rest assured that she bas been under surveillance for days and that tho evidence
against her Is strong enough to convict a
bishop. It doesn't do to jump at conclusions, even when they arc 'caught In
the act,' as the saying goes, and that reminds me of a littlo Incident which taught
me what was probably the most valuable
lesson of my life.
"It happened soon after I went into the
business," the floorwalker went on,
"when I was holding down the job of a
bouse detective In n department store almost as large as this. It was my first
employment of the kind, and naturally I
was anxious to show my ofliclency; so I
was a little disappointed when a month
or more wont by without giving me a
chance to gather In a culprit Ono day,
wben we bnd a big bargain sale in progress and thc store was jammed with people from end to end, I had my attention
attracted to a quietly dressed, middle
aged woman who wns wandering from
department to department In a manner
that struck mo aB suspicious. At last
she stopped before a fancy goods counter,
where a number of handsome silver card-
eases were displayed, and a moment later
I saw her pick up one of them and drop
ft Into ber pocket.
"She stepped at once Into tho crowd,
and I rushed after her. I was a littlo
distance away at tbe time, nnd the crush
was so great I could not get to her immediately without exciting a panic. Just
before I reached her sido the young man
who managed the fancy goods department squeezed In ahead of me and tapped
her on the shoulder. 'Pardon me, mad*
am" he said, 'but you left this on my
counter,* and ho handed her a eardease,
almost tbe facsimile of tbo ono I bow
her pick np. 'Why, that can't bo mine,'
sbe exclaimed, looking startled; '1 have

manager opened tho caso ho hnd brought
and disclosed a large roll of bills, a hundred dollar note on tho outside. *T!'. j

smiling. Uy tbat timo tha lady had extracted tbo other. 'Yes, that Is mine,'
■ho said wben she saw tho money. 'It
was an absurd mistake, but you see
they look very much alike on the outside.'
"During this brief colloquy my blood
ran cold. Ten seconds moro and I would
havo had tbe woman under arrest, probably Involving ttio house in a great damage suit and ccrtaltily losing my joh. An

me for the first time. 'Hello, Jim!' he
said. 'I suppose you wero Intending to
