much of disappointment, waste and

speaking, paying their way, that we

growing continues to grow. A not-
iblo illustration is the purchase hy
the governor general of Canada, Earl
Grev, of a tract of orcharding land
on Kootenay lake, which is to be
immediately planted with trees. Similarly throughout our territory, a
great deal of land has been sold during the year to other persons who
came as tourists and the district has
gained from the east and from the old
country many valuable settlers. The

Movie. There were several important resolutions passed at the sitting
of last night and this morning, including a drastic resolution against
the enforcement id the Lord's Day
Act in this province and Riving wid;
scope to the executive of the Associated Boards to seek relief;
another asking foi an cn^irv into the
cause of the coal shortage of Hn-
late winter, aud yet another taking
up the whole subject of trails and
roads, recommending a definite programme to the provincial executive
for adoption. The resolution on the
Lord's Day Acl consumed not    only
Ihe whole of lasl night's silling but
also a considerable portion of ibis
morning's work, and was the occasion of a hard fight and at oue time
seemed to threaten the loss of Presl-
lent Riichniinn; only the good sense
itf ihe assembled convention found a
middle way for an apparently impossible impasse, threatening a serious toss to the Assoeili'ted Boards on
ne band aud on the other the stultification of Itself.
The lirst matter taken up at the
Thursday afternoon session was a
resolut inn emu na I ing from Trail,
moved by J, B, Anderson nml seconded by G." Weir, asking for an increase
of the duly on pig lend io one cent
per pound uud that all manufactured
leads he Increased proportionately.
This was practically the sa me resolution as was passed last year and
was therefore passed without discussion,
A resolution was then passed asking the various Boards of Trade to
bring up nl the next convention of
the boards proposals for an extensive
exhibit at the Alaska Yukon exhibition at Seattle and asking for an
appropria t ion from the provincial
government for such purpose. This
was moved hy A. W. Dyer and seconded by F. "W. Guernsey and after
Mr. Buchanan had spoken iu its favor
it was unanimously passed.
A similar resolution was passed in
favor of an exhibit at the Franc
British exposition to hi' held next
year in London, England. This was
moved by J. W. Cncl-ilc and seconded
by ii. Campbell
A resolution asking for a better
Imperial news service and aid from
the Dominion government to establish tbe same in London was moved
bv Mr, Dyer and seconded by II. R
liiitley and carried after a short
statement as to tbe reasons why such
n step was necessary.
The next mallei coming up was
that of public telephones and the foi
lowing resolution was placed before
the meeting:
"That in the opinion of the Nelson
board of trade it is in the interests
of the people of the province of British Columbia that Ihe government
should enact legislation providing foi
the construction, acquisition, ex
propriation, maintenance and opera
tion of ,i public telephone system oi
systems throughout the province si
as to insure reasonable charges for
the use of telephones and ibe more
rapiil extension of such telephone service throughout the province or in
such districts as may he deemed advisable."
This was moved by F. A. Starkey
ami seconded by Mr. Oyer. Mr.
Starkey in speaking to ihe resolution
said he favored the proposal on the
ground of cheapness as well as upon
oilier grounds, Telephones were
costing in Nelson J IS a year, whereas,
jti Ihe provinces of the middle west
where the matter was alre.utv one of
public agitation, the price was figured down to $12,
G, t). Buchanan thought the word
"expropriation" should follow
quisjfioii." Me was of Ibe opinion
lhat the lime was coming for these
things and it was cheaper to buy
out telephones now than to buy thein
out taler. Mr. Buchanan declared
himself no Social is I but there were
certain things such as the post, ofiic.,
fileiihoues and telegraphs Rial could
well be taken over by the government.
Tbe conflicting Kaslo and Nelson
resolutions regarding tin* proposed
reclamation of Kootenay lands were
then taken up and a compromise resolution presented, which rend as follows:

If yon would save your children
from the efleets of the trashy, sensational and ruinous literature that
Moods our land and poisons the mmil
ol those who read it, you must not
only banish it Irom your homes but
you must fill its place with good
wholesome reading matter.
Oold is.valuable because it is not
easily found; jewels are precious because they .ire rare; violets are loved
because they modestly conceal themselves. Girls lose half their charm
because they are seen so much on the
streets, and are found promiscuously
mingled in all sorts of public as-
seinblages. They should study tht
principles that makes the ruby precious and the violet dear.
Every school boy knows that a kite

tying it down. It is just so in life.
The man who is tied down by a hall

their mother will make a higher,
si longer flight than the bachelor,
who, having nothing to keep him
steady, is always floundering in the
mud. If you want to ascend in the
world, tie yourself to somebody.
One of the best resolutions we have
heard of anybody making is this:
Not to -speak of mistakes that make
no difference; how often the harmony
of a home is destroyed by the   per-1
istent member of the household who
will argue half an hour over the'
point whether Aunt Jane came on
Tuesday or on Wednesday. We have
listened to heated disputes that cast
un ugly shadow over tlie whole meal,
or spoiled an evening's enjoyment,
upon subjects that, are of no mote
importance than the state ot last
week's weather.
All other earthly pleasures are a
mockery in comparison to the contentment of a loving family circle.
Other joys may last for a day, excite our interest for a time, hut they
fade away and leave us unsatisfied.
While they arc present we feel not the
emptiness of this excitement—but
with their vanishing our hearts hunger for the blessings which home
alone can give. Even they who have
never known what it is to have loving hearts hunger for the blessings
which home alone can give. Even
thev who have never known what it
is to have loving hearts welcome
them on the threshold, and loving
hands minister to their comfort
know that these are lip's most
precious gifts, and thirst for
draught from this eup of peace.
If men would rememher that a woman can't always be smiling who has
to cook dinner, answer the door bell
half a dozen limes, and get rid of a
neighbor who has dropped in, attend
to a sick baby, tie up the cut finger
of a two-year-old, tie up the feet of a
six year-old on skates and get an
eight-year-old ready for school—to
say nothing of sweeping, cleaning,
etc. A woman with all this to contend with may claim it as a privilege
to took and feel a little tired sometimes, and a won! of sympathy
would not he too much to expect
from a man who, during the honeymoon, wouldn't let ber carry so
much as a sunshade.
Home is the one place in all the
world where hearts are sure ot each
other. It is the place where we
tear off the mask of guarded and sus-
nieious coldness which tlie world
forces us to wear in self-defense,
where we pour out the unreserved
communications of full and confiding
hearts. It is the place where expressions ol .tenderness gush out
without anv expression of awkwardness and without any dread of
Icule. Let a man travel where he
will, home is the place to which
'bis hearl uiilrammeled fondly
turns." He is to double all pleasure
there. He is to divide all pain.

The truest, best and sweetest type

the great bulwark of society, not

He who can choke the sweet flowers of social love, and taint then?
with disease; or in the paradise of
earthly bliss, where the plants of
virtue flourish, spread the blight and
mildew ot desolation, hatred and
distrust—who can crush his neighbor's fame to dust, nnd build on its

a heartless fiend. Those who have

"Therefore be it resolved, that tho
Dominion government be meraoraliaod
to have a preliminary investigation
and report covering all the features
of such undertaking."
This was moved by Mr. Cockle and
seconded by Mr. Medley, and spoken
to briefly by both gentlemen, On
being put to the meeting the resolution cacr'ed unanimously.
The deferred resolution as to the
reservation ol hinds in Kast Kootenay then came up and as re-drafted
accepted the boundaries .is laid
ilown by Mr. Herohmer, of Fernie,
and further petitioned the Dominion
government to reserve a snip of land
on the eastern slope Of tin- Rockies,
lacing the reservation within this
province so as to make the whole
the summits ot the Rocky mo
tains a reservation.
The    (fuestiou     was put and    C
The next    resolution was the   I,
on the Nelson list:
'Whereas the    special re
inserted by tbe C   I*. H   in

giants in  Kootenay and  V.i
unfair and onerous   restric
purchasers and   whereas ,m
ible     title can    be obtaluei
kinds under such deeds, resolved, that
steps he  taken    lo have all   reservations eliminated in provincial     land
deeds issued by the Canadian Pacific
Railway    company,   except    wherein
they conform with reservations made
by the crown when disposing of similar lands."
This was moved by Mr. Starkey
who explained that ihe Canadian Pacillc inserted certain provisions on
selling lauds with regard to timber, minerals and expropriation ot
portions at the same price as originally sold. The lands given in the
B (\ Southern had to be sold ou
similar lines as those of the government sales. Hut the oilier grants
now held by the Canadian Pacific
were held without conditions, .such as
the Columbia iV Western grant.
Ou a vole being taken the resolution carried.
E. 0. Kamm moved a resolution of
which no previous notice had been
given asking the prohibition of the
shipping ol coal and coke to the
United States when Cniindinli industries were suffering and closing down
lor lack of fuel. He stated that the
Si. Eugene mine had suffered severely from the coal shortage. The mine
find to close down tor two weeks.
In the meantime tralnload alter
lUiiiload ol coal had been sent out
Ur the United States for the benefit
;tf foreign industries.
R. Campbell seconded.
Mr. Starkey moved that the resolution be referred back lo commit tee
uu resolutions with a view ol ie-
ihnfting the motion lot presentation
of Abe case to the railway com-mls-
The lirst question coining up in the
evening session yesterday was the
Rossland resolution affecting Sunday
labor which was moved by Lome
Campbell and seconded by 11- Dlckin-
ii,  reading as  follows:
'Whereas an Act respecting Sunday has Ireeu passed hy the Dominion government, which if enforced
will, it is believed, greatly Interfere
with the successful operation of many
Industries in British Columbia:
Therefore be it resolved, that this
hoard whilst wishing lo restrict
labor as much as possible to six days
a week, urges the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern B. C. to request
the provincial government to give an
assurance that no action will be taken in enforcing the said Act so that
in the meantime all the parties concerned may look fully into the question and confer witb the government
with a view to providing a solution
of the difficult points involved."
A number of the clergy of the city
came in at this point, every church
except the Anglican being present.
Lome A. Campbell said the enforcing of the Act would cut down the
supply of coke and coal one seventh,
il would cut down transportation,
it would involve companies boarding
their men free on Sunday and it
would cut down the wages of tbe
men. Men would not lie around a
bunkhouse idle all day Sunday and
would simply get another jolt. The
Act was not workable in this country
und would work a great hardship.
Mr. Buchanan did nol think the
provincial authorities had any option
in enforcing the act. As for Mr.
Campbell's contentions, (hey had all
been considered by tbe passers of the
Act. Tbe objectors had better make
up their minds that the Act was a
tjood one and would work lor the
general good. As to the men in outlying camps they euuld read or walk
iir insist on having hotter facilities
provided. if an exemption were
made for camps oul side of a three
mile radius of a town this would not
suit the views of the chief employers
of labor, who would not come under
such an exemption These employers
were nol moved by a consideration
for their men. Mr. Buchanan
thought the conslitution.il wav lot
the movers ol the Act, was to appeal to the Dominion parliament for
Hit amendment.
Mr. Dyer spoke shortly, showing
the absurdity ol the nol as applied
to newspapers and declared that if
the province had not authority in the.
matter it should take steps to see
that it did have. He was in favor
of clause 4 of the Act, with tin-
proper exemptions, but pointed out
that sub-section 2 of the clause entirely nullified the good aimed at
the previous section.
Rev. H. S. Hastings, Greenwood's
Methodist minister and local sccre
tary ot the Lord's Day Alliance
pointed nut that the Mother Lode-
mine was not worked on Sunday and
maintained that there would be a
better class of workers by enforcement of the Act.    As for sub-section
2 of clause 4, that was put into the
Act by Duncan Ross, M. P., for
Vale. The best men had not left
the Mother Lode and It was found
that just as much work was done by
the men in six days as in seven.
Bath and reading rooms have been
provided tor the men at that mine.
Father Hart maim, amid much
laughter, advised the secretary to

the act to be in the interests of the
workers and should be given a fair

Ihe Act would lead lo a demand tor
higher wages which might result in
regrettable labor troubles.
Mr. Buchanan, on the question be-
ing called for, urged further delay.
ft Campbell spoke in favor ol the
amendment that the matter he referred hack to the local boards but on
Hi** question being put the amendment was lost and the original resolution passed wilh a single dissenting voice, lhat of the president.
The convention then adjourned, it
being after IU o'clock and two aud ,t
hall hours had been consumed by
tins one question.
The first matter coming up at this
morning's session was lhc lollowlng:
"Resolved that this hoard petition
the railway commission and the provincial government to make a full
inquiry into the causes of the coal
and coke shui*?figc existing Irom time
io tunc in Eastern 13. C, also the
inefficient supply of cars for the
transportation of coal and coke and
also to take cognizance of the shipment of coal and coke to the United
States duiing a deficiency of supply
lor lhc needs of the province, and
that the railway commission and llie
provincial government be requested to
take such steps as may be (ouiid
advisable to hung about the alleviation ol these conditions, and that
Uus resolution he referred to the
local hoards .lo collect data and sub-
mil the same with necessary evidence
to llu* executive committee of this
Tins was formally moved hy E. O
Kamm and seconded by It. Campbell
and carried without further discus
sioti, Lome Campbell then moved, R
R, lledlcy, seconding, the following
resolution, which carried:
"Resolved that in view of the great'
suffering during the past winter
which resulted from lack of sufficient
fuel, and loss to the mining und
smelting interests in consequence of
the shortage of coke and coal, that
the Dominion government be asked to
l once open up their coal fields in
East Kootenay iu the 50,000 acres of
land reserved for the purpose ot offering assurance that a supply would
be available under such exceptional
uiuslaiices as experienced recently."
The nexl resolution carried, was
moved by Lome Campbell and seconded by Geo. Weir:
"Whereas, an Act to aid In the pre-
ill-ion and settlement of strikes and
lockouts iu coal mines has been introduced in the Dominion house, be it
esulved that the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern B. C. urge upon
the Dominion government the necessity ot passing; a bill at the earliest
possible moment."
The next resolution was lhat dealing with the list uf mads und
bridges needed iu East Kootenay,
brought up by K. E. Simpson, for the
Craubrook board. Mr. Simpson had
a difficult task before him hut carried his point, after no little discussion, the programme committee
presenting a report thai these resolutions were uoi proper matters for
ihe Associated Boards ol Trade lo
dual with. Eventually the following
resolution was submitted for those
proposed by Cranbrook:
"Resolved that many trails, roads
and bridges ate wanted iu tbe country and among those of most pressing importance the Associated
Boards begged tu recommend lo ihe
provincial government lor Immediate
construction ihe following: 1. Road
from Crows Nest Pass to Kootenay
Landing; 2, bridge at Wardner; it,
road up the St. Mary's river; 4, St.
Mary's river bridge; 5, bridge over
mouth of Elk river, li, road from
Balfour to Robsou; 7, road from
Ymir to International boundary; s.
road from International boundary to
Rohsoti, along the Columbia; 9, road
from Rossland to Norway mountain,
'" road into the Flathead valley,
11, road up Wild Horse creek, East,
Kootenay." I
These were the suggestions of dele-!
gates from various districts, after
holding a conference together, the expressed wish of the convention being
to help the government in taking this
matter away from the present patronage system. This resolution carried on being put.
The president of the Associated
Boards theu tendered his resignation
on the ground that he could not carry
oul the wishes of the boards wilh reference lo the Lord's Day Act. He
Ibeu retired uud the delegates after
considerable discussion added a rider
to the cesoluliou as passed last
night, which the delegates refused lo
change in one iota. The rider gave
power to lite executive to apply to
Ihe provincial attorney general for
relief in Uiu premises aud to apply to
the Dominion parliament for amendments which should cover any hardships inflicted by the act, which
might be shown to exist. This met
wilh the approval of President Buchanan, who withdrew his resignation;
Intimating, however, that lie might
nol concur with the views ol others
of the executive as to wliai amendments were wanted.
Votes of thanks were passed lo the
president, vice-president, secretary,
Greenwood buard ot trade and the
Nelson Daily News, and the conveu-'
tion amounted at a little after the
noon hour.

that developed were promptly taken

There are many people in this part
ol the country who are unable to
understand why the McBride government did not niune Government Agent;
Armstrong for the position of Deputy Commissioner of Lands and
Works, or for some other position of
a similar character at Victoria. Mr.
Armstrong enjoys the enviable record of being one of the best government agents in the province, and his
nftiee ranks as one of the very best.
Furthermore Mr. Armstrong    stands

as a senior in the service, and it was
thought by many people that when
there were anv plums to be handed
out they would go to the man who
had won the admiration and the
highest of praise from the officials of
the government for his efficient service. If the civil service is to be
placed upon a straight basis of reward for good work done, one of the
first steps lhat should he taken is a
material recognition of the results
accomplished by Mr. Armstrong. It
is coming to the man, ami it would
be the right kind of a move for any
government if it is honest in its assertions that the civil service shall
he so changed that men of merit
shall receive their reward.

An Important action in the comity
court held at Cranbiook was heard
last week by his honor .fudge Wilson,
the hearing extending over Friday
and Saturday, the l-lth uud 15th instant. The action was brought on
behalf of Ross Bros. & Co., the owners of a milling outfit and extensive
timber limits at Klkmouth, against
Die defendants, D. ,1. Wilson and
Thomas Wilkinson, lumbermen, of
Burlington, Iowa. The action arose
out of certain negotiations for Uie
sale to the defendants of the mill,
timber limits and holdings of Ross
to in April of last year. One of
Bros. A Co., which were entered in-
t-he defendants after the negotiations
for sale, remained at Klkmouth, taking charge of the mill and working
there along with Hoss Bros., who
also remained in possession for
Stout a month after the negotiations
for sale took place. The defendants
withdrew in the latter part of June
and Ross Bros, resumed operation*
The suit was brought to recover
from Uie defendants the amount paid

over $2,500, -between the period when
the negotiations for sale took place
and when they finally withdrew.

defendants, Wilson and Wilkinson.
otiawu, March IK.-Mr. Ureen, a
farmer from Moose .law who farms
about Ifu acres, was examined at lhc
lumber combine committee to-day.
He started out by saying lhat farmers paid more than thev should do
lor their lumber, because of the
existence ot a lumbei combine. He
said he had nut so much evidence as
he would like to show llie existence
of the association to keep up prices,
but he had prices nnd lists to establish thai juices were arranged by a
society, lie produced lists of prices
oi different companies to show that-
on exactly the same day Ihe cosl of
lumber in the yards at Moose .law
and Uegilia were precisely the same.
He produced bills which'he had paid
for lumber to show that prices had
gone up during-recent years. The
i el ail men said Ihe manufacturers'
association were lo blame and not
retailers, lie ascertained from enquiry among dealers that they wanted to make 3d pel cent clear profits,
but il was more frequently 20 per
cent. This meant that farmers paid
about 30 per cent to the middleman
beside the freight. Hut this was not
all the Iniquity of the transaction.
When a car arrived, the retail men
took oul the best part of this lumber and sold it for SMI aud $00 a
thousand, and sold the balance to
farmers at the regular price for
which the whole ear was graded,
Kverybody knew this was done. He
did not exactly see them do it. but
he knew that it was done. Whut
farmers wanted was for the committee to take off the yoke and permit them to deal direct with the
lumber manufacturers.
Mr. Staples—"Hut you can't buy
direct other articles you want to
Mr. Green-"-'*01i, yes, we buy barbed wire and coal oil and sometimes
coal, by a few of us getting together
without going to the retail men. We
ought to lie able to buy direct if we
had good credit and wanted a specified amount. We do not want to
lo away with retail men altogether,
but when we approach manufacturers
we are told thai if the manufacturers
-ell lo us then the retail association
would boycott the manufacturers and
not buy from them."
When' lumber in his district was
selling at $27 a thousand, he said he
was able to buy it at $21 a thousand
through contracts Dial he had during
the past year.
Mr. Green suggested that the government should set apart lumber
limits that might he operated for the
relief of those affected.
"If the government," said Mr.
Green, "does not know how to run a
utwmill, then the farmers ran take

Ottawa, March 18.-0. P. Wells,
secretary of the Mountain Lumbermen's association, was examined before the lumber committee to-day.
He produced his minute book and
look up the minutes of January 10,
in which a man named Jones said he
was going lo Calgary to meet the
etaii men there and form an association for the purpose of maintaining prices. There were advances
n the wholes-ale prices of lumber in
November, 1005, January, ItlOti,
February, Idflfi, and May, August and
September, 190fi; most of these advances amounted to u dollar a thou-
ojid all round. He said that the
manufacturers were not making
noney at that. They had to make
idvances or go out of business and
ihe advances would have been much
greater, but for the fear of the prices
bringing in outside competition. His
.irganiz.ition had no connection with
'he British Columbia Lumber association, nor the American association
ui the Pacific coast. The association hud the consumer in mind when
fixing its wholesale prices. A motion was made at the meeting in
January that no sales be made by
millmen to municipal corporations.
Then* Wiis no record iu the minute
book id what became of that million. The witness said that the
general opinion of the millmen wns
that such sales should not be made
.nit they were made all the same The
association had no connection or
igretmcnl with the retail association
of Alberta. There were simply fees
.mil  no  penalties  for  membersgip,
The grades of lumber had been
changed by the association. The
object wiis to secure uniformity und
in the end tended to the advantage
of alt concerned. Replying to Mr.
Fowler, lie emphatically stated that
ihere wns no understanding whatever
hetween the Mountain manufacturers
association ami the Alberta retailers
association. He had received' com-i
pltments from Mr. Orogun, secretary
of the latter association, that sales
had been made direct to contractors. I

There is considerable demand for

China and more particularly at

(Nelson News.)
At Kootenay Landing yesterday a
remarkable scene was witnessed when
an amateur diver, in the service of
the ('. P, IL, attempted to go under
water in hill diving regalia. He was
not on duly at Ihe time, nor do his
customary ' duties call for frequent
use of the diving suit. However, as
the full outfit was at hand, and us
he wished to take advantage of the
;elden opportunity for learning what
trange tilings might be beneath the
surface of the waters, he donned the
harness and prepared for the descent.
Ere letting him down, those in charge
of the operations carefully adjusted
Ihe pneumatic devices connected wilh
the hoftdgenr so that a proper quantity oinlr could to continually pumped into him, while the accumulating
surplus made its escape slowly. The
matciir diver, however, promptly
rotdjusted the attachments, and fixed them   so that,     while   frcsli air
mid enter, none could get out. Thu
result was that his suit became over
inflated, and when he got in tbe
water it was Impossible to make him
go under. Ilud he been left' to shift
for himself, he would probably have
been taken out. of Ihe lake some lime
later, feet first. As H Was, his
friemls Interfered,, and Insisted that

Chicago, March lft.—Trainmen and
conductors on all railroad lines west
of Chicago have rejected Mie recent
offer of the general managers of the
systems for an increase in wages,
according to information reaching
the Record-Herald. The official canvass of the referendum vote, which
has been In progress for a roitnight,
will begin to-morrow. It is stated
further that the trainmen have voted
to stribp if their demands are not
granted. Unless    the   railroad)
managers offer further concessions a
strike of 5,000 men Ik likelv to result.
When the conference between representatives of the employees and officials of the companies adjourned,
February 25, it was with the understanding that another conference
would be held after the men voted on
thi' general managers' proposition.
Acting Mayor Ryan and Aldermen
Fink, Gill and llickenhotham met in
the council chamber Monday last" at
to a. m. for the purpose of revising
the assessment roll. The applications (or change were very few and
in some of the cases the assessed
amount was slightly reduced,
Mr, White, of Calgary, appeared
for the townsite company and protested against the assessment of their
unsold lots, but the appeal was disallowed.
The East Kootenay Lumber company, Ro1*\iiisoii-McKeui'.ie Lumber
company anil King Lumber Mills
appealed against the assessment for
school purposes of certain lots outside of the corporate limits. These
appeals were also dismissed with exception of one lot.
Victoria, March 15.—It, is very
probable that during the present session of the legislature one of the
oldest civil servants of the province
will be superannuated. Col. Wolfen-
den, Kings printer, has been over
fifty years iu harness, and would
probably welcome retirement from
duties which are yearly becoming
more strenuous. No department ol
ihe government is developing more
rapidly than that of Ibe printing
bureau, where fees and business from
timber notices and similar notices is
more immediately felt. Mr. Wolfen-
ilen is the last of the old guard with
the exception of (he deputy minister
of finance, Mr, Smith, and auditor
general Anderson, Mr. Gore having
retired a year or two ago from the
Lauds nnd Works department. Mr.

Wallace, Idaho, March lii-On-
eral indignation is expressed by the
physicians of Wallace at the attitude
taken by Ihe city council in connection wilh the smallpox scare. The
doctors fwl that the council has
showed a lack    ol public spirit    in
complaining about the restrictions
that, had been placed upon the city,
when thev were for the public welfare.
The doctors ridicule the idea that
the present disease afflicting the
citizens ot Wallace is "Manila itch,"
ami say that this disease comes out
in the form ot a rash and not in an
eruption such as is one of the symptoms of smallpox.
Two new cases of smallpox were reported yesterday. These were Joseph Oormiui, a member of the local
police force, nnd W. J. Champion,
also of Wallace. Both patients have
been taken lo the pesthouse.
A noticeable, fact iu conned ion
with the spread of smallpox is that
almost all ol the cases reported have
heen found in the neighborhood ot
Sixth and Cedar streets, and almost
illl Investigation poiuls to the tncl
thiii these cases have originated in
one of the saloons at this corner,
though il is unknown where the
disease was contracted originally.

Wallace was in Ihe engine when it

No true woman values the attentions of tlie ir.iin she cures lor, for
their material worth. That his
gifts costs 50 cents or Jfill makes
much less difli'ience to her than
mankind generally supposes.
The thing is that lie thinks ol hcr-
or that lie does not think of her—
that his love prompts liiin to spend
generously—or that it is ol a
sparse  cultivating nature.
The books, magazines, the occasional (lowers that s-hr loves, the
concert or play planned to "ive ber
pleasure—nil these are priceless to
licr il given hv the right man; he-
cucse they are evidences not so much
ol money spend, hut of a thoughtful
consideration tor her.
And this is meat and drink to s
woman's soul. It is not that she Is
vain and thirsts lor admiration. It
is a deep, secret longing to be
precis-ted by the one being ot
others Irom whom she desires,
The average lot ol woman is to see
these attentions gradually lade away,
when affection becomes an accepted
thing on both sides, says the St.
Louis Republican. And there Is no
woman on earth who is not deeply
wounded hy this change in the man's
attitude. She would do as much (or
him as ever—thinks ol her welfare
mure constantly and tenderly. He,
on the other hand, is infinitely less
concerned about giving her happiness. He does not mean to he unkind, hut hy his thnuirhtlessness be
stabs her a 'thousand times.

Ureal amusement bas been caused
;it North Camp, Aldcrshot, by a
strange Instance ol tbe tardy execution of a War Office order. A lew
days ago Ibe attention of an officer
was directed to Ibe operations of a
party of the army building and const ruction department's men. They
li.id arrived on a portion of the battalion's parade ground with a traction engine-, having several huge
wagons filled with (-ravel, sand, and
rough hewn blocks ol stone. This
mat(>ria 1 vva. deposited on tlie
ground, ami tbe engine ami trucks
started off for moie. The man
harge of the work could say no
more than that be was acting under
specific instinct ions from the headquarters' staff. Confident that
something was radically wrong, tbe
officer bad the impiiries carried
through to tho war office. The explanation given was that tbe orde.
under which tbe work was bring done
was .hied 1850. It bad lain pigeon
holed in the war office for exactly
hftlj a century, and was only discovered when ibe recent removal to the
new offices was taking place. The
order called for the early delivery of
1(H1 tons of road making material at
North Camp. The official, not untieing the aiititniilty of the order, nnd
thinking thai it was still valid, bud
it put in hand for immediate execution. The road which the material
was intended to build had been in
existence for many years.

panic throughout the countryside
is the belief of the police that all

singular    cunning   and ferocity      is
irccting them.     Extraordinary pre-
intions are being    taken hv therc-
iiiwits in the outlying ami sparsely
populated parts.      Watch dogs have
been let    loose in gardens,   mansions

nightly bv    plate   layers ami pnlioe-
men.      The churches in the district

poet,   bis   mother   and his daughter
Ada,   Countess  of    Lovelace,    were

A few days ago thr Perth police
surprised and captured a notorious
prison breaker named Thomas Gib-
lions, as he was attempting to blow
lip a safe in a coal merchant's office
adjoining the Perth railway bridge.
As two police officers rushed in upon
him,   Gibbons     shouted     excitedly,
Kor heaven's sake, don't come in
here, or you'll be blown up." The
officers, however, closed wilh him,
ami while they were struggling desperately one iii them heard a hissing
sound, and, looking round, 'Observed
a lighted [use attached to the top
of the safe and connected with a
large charge of gelatine. While the
other officer wrestled with Gihtrons,
he managed to stamp it out just in
lhc nick of time, Sufficient dynamite was being employed in blowing
up the safe to have wrecked the adjoining bridge and railway lines trading to Aberdeen and the Highlands,
Gibbons was ignorant of the tremendous power of the explosive. After
he had been overpowered a large
quantity of explosives was found in
his possession. Gibbons' career of
rrime is an extraordinary one. Not
only has he on more than one occa'
ion succeeded in breaking out of
Perth prison, but he recently underwent a term of incarceration tor attempting to break into the quarters
f one of tbe officers of the penitentiary. About two years ago he effected a daring escape from Inverness

Importance ot this Juncture. Tlm
idea is to unite the Atlantic and
German oceans, the two most frequented seas in Ihe world, by means
of a ship canal through Central
Scotland, capable of carrying the
largest battleship afloat. The canal
would extend from Voker, on tbe
Clyde, to Grangemouth, on the Forth-
and would he just over 29 miles
long. 3fi feet deep, and 120 feet wide
at the bottom, When engineers prepared plans and a report for the provisional committrr of the Forth ami
Clyde ship canal in 1880, the approximate cost ot thr undertaking
was put down at seven millions, including the acquisition or hind. The
canal was to he worked with twelve
double locks. The project would not,.
present any great engineering difficulties. From the strategical point
of view, the proposed canal would occupy the best position that could be
selected In the length of Britain.
