An   Open   Letter   from   Santa   Claus
My Dear People:
As Christmas approaches I decided to take a run to the Kootenays and see how you were
provided for Xmas. After taking a good look at all the stores I decided to make Beattie & Atchison's
my headquarters again. As you know, I have been there now ever since Cranbrook started, and
am very glad they still make it possible for me to stay.
I find this year they have a better stock than ever, selected and collected from all parts of
the .world. The children are particularly well looked after; in fact, you can find something for everyone young and old. Now my advice to you is, go to BEATTIE & ATCHISON'S as quickly as
possible, make your selection while the stock is complete, and if you do not want it at once have
it delivered later.
Wishing you all a very Merry Xmas. SANTA      CLAUS*

A large aud Influential deputation
from tltt' Moral ami Social Roform
Council ot Canada waited on Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. A. U. Ayles-
worth, Hon. Charles Murphy ami
Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King, representing tbe government last Monday,
to urge the introduction of government legislation this session along
the lines of the petitions from all
ovor Canada now pouring into the
Commons praying tor amendments to
tho criminal code so as to make more
drastic and effective the law against
gambling and against adultery and
other soeial evils.
The deputation, whieh was introduced by Hon. H. IL Miller, M.P.
for South Qrey, presented its views
through Itev. Dr. Shearer, secretary
of the Council; Rev, Dr. Chown,
head of the moral and social reform
work of thc Methodist church; Rev.
Dr. Cameron, of Ottawa, nnd W. 12,

Thoy presented a draft form ol thc

solutclv illegal in any shape or form.
Sir Wilfrid, replying, stated that,
while the government was in full
sympathy with the general objects of
tlie deputation, still there were
manv aspects of the situation to   be
msldercd, ami before any definite
promise as to thc character and
scope of the legislation to he. introduced this session could he given, thc
government were in duty bound to

Fernie, II. C, Dee. 1.—Since the
election, rumors are rife as to
wholesale repeating and personating
itt this riding. It is stated on good
authority that .lohn Harrington, the
Socialist candidate, is preparing to
contest this election and that he will
appear before the returning ollicer by
counsel and will make a thorough
examination of the returns from each
polling division of the district. It
is stated that one man voted at
Fernie, Coal Creek and Hosmer, and
Uiat well known men in Fernie arc
guilty of double voting. It is statetl
tbat the Socialist party is preparing
to unearth the whole affair and to
see that every man guilty ol violating the election' laws Is prosecuted
to the full extent of the law. Considerable monev was bet on the result and it Is now a.puzzling proposition to tho stake holders how to

Miss Mamie Gillespie, who until
four weeks ago was employed iu the
glove department of a large Pittsburg department store is now on an
island off the North Carolina coast,
suffering from leprosy, and as a result every large employer of female
labor iu Pittsburg lias issued au
order that after the lirst of the
month employes must not wear false
hair in any form.
Until three months ago Miss Gillespie was head of tho glove department iu thu largest depart men t

that time, sbe went lo the false hair
department and purchased a switch.
Within two weeks after she Imd pur-
ihased the switch her body, from the
breast up, was- covered with a
malignant growth. Shu went to a
physician, Dr. L. M. Golden, and after numerous consultations with the
besl physicians in Pittsburg, he announced that she was suffering from
leprosy and that she would have
to be isolated. The young woman rebelled, declaring that she would not
be isolated until tho United States
government took a hand in the matter and traced tho switch to its
original owner, the same being human
After several weeks, the government reported that, the beautiful
blonde locks had eome from an island in the Caribbean Sea, where
the Cuban government semis its most
malignant leprosy patients, und that
there was hardly a single doubt but
that the young woman had contracted the disease from the switch she
had purchased in probably the most
representative department store ot
When seen today, Dr. Golden said:
"While 1 regret to make this statement, it is a fact that Miss Gillespie
has leprosy. She contracted il from
a false switch. So sure am I that
this is not the first ease of this kind

Latter's Speech Contains True Idea of
Imperial Unity
London, Dec. 1.—Tlie Times publishes n letter from Sir Charles Tupper to It. L. Borden, dated Nov. -in,
on the question of the Canadian
navy. He says: "All that is required is that the government ot the
day should carry uut the resolution
passed in the house ol commons at
Ottawa pledging parliament to proceed vigorously with Uie construction
of the Canadian navy." Sir Charles
cannot understand the demand for
Dreadnoughts and cannot avoid
thinking that a tearful responsihility
will rest un those who disturl) or
destroy thc compact filtered into at
Uic Imperial defence conference in
this vitally Important question.
The Times editorially savs that
Sir Charles Tuppor's letter should
contribute strengthening concord   be
tween Laurier -ind Borden on the
naval -juestion. The Times says
Laurier's speech of November 15
contains tbe true ideal of Imperial
"It i.-. not reallv derogatory," it
,dis, "to this lofty ideal to say as
Laurier also said on the same question, Canada would have a navy and
that navv would not go to war unless the parliament of Canada chose
■jt send it.' In the ahstract such a
imposition is indisputable, in the
.instruct it applies to any and every
form of co-operation or contribution
fir the ptirpfises of Imperial defence,
but in the concrete it is certain the
same considerations and motives
which have served to bring about the
,ii!*sent situation will also serve to
maintain and develop it."

and gathered big money, but during these
periods the sltp-me squads made It too expensive. Vou could keep open If you obeyed the hint
to "see the captain" of the district. After him came
his men, nml don't ever think tbey were pikers! They
culled every ulght, and lis soon ns one pair were supposedly slaked permanently tbey switched the cut on
us und a fresh brme appeared. That's why so many
places close—not because of laws or dlsiriet attorneys,
but because ihe bulls have to get theirs and request
it too frequent ly.
The same sort nf "reform" was ngltatlng New Jersey. They had soaked the Long Brunch crowd so
hard thnt Duly closed up his bin Pennsylvania Club.
The little iish stood for raids nnd Blmkedowtis until
custom dwindled, because u imiu of reputation was
11 f ni id to play in a bouse where a pinch was liable to
eome off any niliiiite. I had a partner culled Yukon

Alaska--came along and wouldn't warm up to any
of Yukon's pickets he'd do the guy Hie honor of

He'd worked fur me a good while, lie eould slide

about literature mid art, owned uu artless, boyish
laugh thai kidded many n light wit d into shooting
uwny a thousand where he bad meant to risk u century iioie, uml always left the mark feeling pleasant.
It's the best system. I've bad the saint- men entiling
back Tor more year nfter year, und ready to light me
for tbe chance to get skinned,
I sent Yukon lo nose around the watering places
near town, ami he dug up a joint that listened like
money to me.
ft was ul Shelter Bay, not fur from Long Itruueh.
Brokers mid bankers kept summer homes there, and
It wus within easy automobile or power bout ride of
two other resorts.
"There's a (lossy Inn on the water front," reported
Yukon, "all ready to go Into. It's furnished, small
restaurant, big grounds, boathouse and binding, and
for lease at *:i."iii u mouth. It's small, but we ain't
renttii' rooms, if you cun drug the piny there It's
Just the place.   Owner's too 111 to run It."
Starting the Game.
To cut the details, I rented Shelter lun nud sent
down my crew from tho New York house. Tbe
builder hud designed n long dancing hall, which extended out over the water, connecting with the second
Iloor of the hotel hy n long passage. A Ulght of steps
gave entrance from the float. The other door was at
the end of tin- passage. Underneath the hall was a
storehouse foi- boats.
When I had siiiupttlousty furnished the bull I put
In the fmo layout, u roulette wheel, a craps table and
made provision for a stud gntne if auy one wanted lt.
lt was n swell snare, uad hetter than some of my
million tin Ire customers bud at home. My black cook
enme to boss the kitchen, and Yukon provided two
wallers who had worked In such hu establishment
before uud knew how to forget whatever they saw.
When we were nil set for business, with the 'phone
going and my untomohile ready for service, I notified
various persons ihat there was something doing at
Shelter Hay. My "club house" was so arranged that
In case of n raid 1 could bold tho fort until the evidence wus stowed nwny.
I was eating breakfast with Yukon one morning
when he Hipped an advertisement from tbe paper,
"Here's another Shelter Inn," he snld. "Pipe!
'Shelter Inn, Long Itruueh, offers sujierb board, $10
n week. Boating, tennis, every convenience and pleasure.   Guests met at station.'"
"Well, Hint's not at Shelter Bay," I snld.   "What
of   If*"
"Be funny If they got some of our folks by mistake, that's all," snld be. "I passed It yesterday. Au
awful Joint!"
I wasn't Interested, mid said so. No one but an ass
was going to mix the two.
Ten minutes Inter Seott, my black steward, called
me to tlie telephone. There was a woman squawking
Into It, evidently the central, hut I couldn't bear anything. Finally 1 caught part of It. She asked If
Jesse Hamlin could get a room for $10. To make
sure I repented the question,   "Yes," 8be answered.
The long distance was acting prankish, aud lt was
all I eould do to make her hear me.
"Why, tell hlm to eome down and be my guest!" I
bawled. "WlmtV Hates? Auy rate be wants. I
don't cure. What? Well, ten If he Insists, then; only
tell me Ids train and I'll send tbe machine. To-duy?
Yes, if he hurries—tbe three o'clock boat from New
York. All right. Kb? Boom for two? Twenty, If
you like,   t.oodby."
I wns nil In when I dropped the receiver. Yukon
was pleasantly excited, for Jesse Hamlin was about
ns ripe u live one as ever hung on the Hue, A couple
of my dealers were stalling around lu the bar, yawn-
lug over the putters. There was the bay to swim In,
but ihey preferred a shower hnth In their rooms.
Country life bored them. A guy who works all night
nnd sleeps all day ain't strong fur rural pastimes, The
sun hurts his eyes.
"Well. boys, we'll have a little trade to-night," I
said, "and besides Hamlin there's the Wall street
bunch from Long Branch."
While I expected no revenue from tbe rooms, If
Hamlin felt like paying be should hnve the privilege.
The restmirmit mid bar were expected to bring In
enough to run the place.
There wns a young man In town who had Just got
his eager mitts on il trust fund crented for bis benefit
nud held until his twenty-fifth year, and If I- lured!
him to my cosey retreat uml got bim loosened up, as 1
knew I could, I'd be even for all summer. A few persons while autoinobiltiig would stop nnd order luucb
or u drink. In these cases they were served, but at
ii pretty steep price. Still, they got the cream of the
market, nnd no one cared if they came back or not.
In fact, I hoped tbey wouldn't, for gossip travels
fust, and Shelter Inn could stand a lot of silence.
"Ladies" a Curse.
I Rent Yukon In thc machine to meet the boat train.
It began to ruin, nnd nt Ave o'eloek wus quite dark,
I heard the cur rolling up the road, got Into u dinner
jueket and prepared to welcome the murk uud his

friend. On the last step 1 balled, for a woman's voice
sounded from the veranda.
Ob, but I got sore! Mud that mull brought some
doll—his wife or some one's else—It was all tbe same,
for a skirt can spoil your business quicker thnfi anything else. I wus thinking of that when Seott softly
came up to me.
"Mist* Frank," said be, grinning, "so we got ladies
yeah, nn* yo' done fohgot to toll me bote flxln' flowuhs
fob de table. Jus' listen at Mi-f Yukon! Cynnt be
talk sof nn* low when he wants to? Beckon he'd
make a bit In nuy cotnp'ny."
"But, curse It, they must have stopped to get out
of thc rnin, Scott," I snld; "that's all. There nre no
women coming here.   It's Mr. Hamlin nud a friend."
I moved to the window, where, standing In the
shadow, I could view everything on the electric
lighted veranda. Yukon wus etirnestty addressing
two girls.
"But we huve to lie quite sure," said the smaller
of two little creatures, who looked like n couple of
Innocent kids; "the iu\. snld ten a week, nr.d that's
twenty for two, mid It's ull we ean afford. And what
did you menu by asking If 1 was Mr. Wllletis' wife?"
I knew. Thut wns the divorced spouse of my crops
denier, nud she hud a habit of tipping the police to
come and make a raid on Wllletis* employer whenever the former failed to slip her the alimony. A
little hard on Wllletis' boss Unit was, mid Yukon,
being pessimistic, was always eying slrmige females
with alarm.   But what was all this gab about?
"And what I mean Is, does the ten Include the
meals, too? Please pardon mo for asking again,
only we—I, nt least—oh, Jessie, wlmt shall we do?"
"Do? My dear buly, be shown to your room nud
then come down and order a nifty little dinner," said
Yukon earnestly.
He turned that bunk laugh of Ids ou, mid nfter
thnt the stuff was off.
"Huh! I don't see why you're fussing so,  Anne,"
said tbe brown eyed    "It looks jusl lovely to me.
and this gentleman will consider us quite rude If we
stay here asking silly questions over ami over."
"Certainly," said Yukon. Ho almost purred It. I
felt like sticking a foot und kicking the swine. He
led tbem around the venimbi, and In through tlie
side door.   I heard the stairs creak.
"For God's sake!" I exclaimed, rushing Into the
bar, "whore's Burke?   Where's Mr. Hamlin?"
Burke, the chauffeur, answered me with n grin.
"Only the Indies come," snld he, "an', fur a fact-
boss, I think they got In wrong, see? Mr. Gnrvlti,
he's buntln' thnt gent when the littlest gal lists hlm
sumpln*. Sbe snys they're expected, 'cause she
'phoned.   Then I see him hitlln', nn' In I key nil git."
"You're sure Hamlin wasn't on the train?"
"There were but two cars and few passengers,"
he replied, "and Hnndlii wasn't nmong them."
I decided that when Yukon quit acting chambermaid and got down to the ground floor again we'd
honk up ou this thing.
"Hey, Scott!   Whero'8 that housekeeper with the
keys? Well, tell her to hike up here. I can't get
14 open."
They Like the Place.
I went to the stairs nnd listened after Yukon hnd
roared this from above. He was answered by the
occupant of No, 14.
"Damn It! I'm taking my bulb Is why yon can't
get Into my room!"
Fine. Tlie mil 111 ed voice of Wllletts Indicated that
lie wns ready to repel boarders. Yukon was profusely begging his pardon. The girls were giggling.
Then 1 heard;—
"Aune, did you see nil those men, mil uo women nt
nil? thud heavens, suppose—something seems wrong
to me,   This man enn't bo lhe clerk."
The girls wore talking together as Yukon hunted
the housekeeper, who wns asleep, ns usual,
"It's a mngnlilcenl place, dear—hul tits faro I.i too
kind for hlm not to lie nil right. Aud do remember
how we rend those ads till our beads liuxzed. We'll
slay here and have one glorious week, with no awful
ollice. One week, then another year of horror. I'm
not afraid."

The housekeeper had been found. There were
orders from Yukon, all lhe women gabbing at once.
1 broke in myself.
"I'll send up a bottle o' wine," I culled.
Then I l t it. feeling like a fool.   And yet I waa
rather pleased.   Yukon came bustling down.
"Say. old pal." he said, "llsi to my song of woe."
"Oil, I'm hep." I assured htm. "but now what?
They'll have tlie whole inn upside down."
"I had fifty on At! Green ttl ((in 1 Saturday," said
he, Hushing. "Ii's In my kick. Well, you said ton

stuck around, of course. lie kepi It up until I warned
hlm to leave 'em alone. Then he declared that he
was only trying to make It cheerful.
1 was talking with Wllletts ou the veranda nfter
"I only want the big boys." I remarked. "The
pikers must keep right on going, This'll be n gold
mine if thoy let us nlone, nud I think I've squared
everybody, While only n small percentage of million-
mitres are entertaining com pan Ions, their coin makes
up for that." 'Two brown heads came Inlo view Just
below. The in in was over, nud oin* full' guests wore
sl rolling mound the inn. So was Yukon. Hud they
heard me?
1 Iniml not.
"How about a little trip In the Inuncti Just for u
breather?" Yukon was suggesting.
1 leaned over the rail.
"Don't forget that you go to work at eight,*" I snld
"What, at night?" tbey wero asking him. "That's
a funny time to go to work."
"But I'm the night watchman," said Yukon cheer-
Wall Street Arrives.
Tbey Inugbed Incredulously. He had switched to
evening clothes and looked n pretty classy watchman. At eight I saw hlm bended for the club bouse,
and followed him. We loafed there until eleven, when
lbe Wall street people, having made a good many
stops for Ihpild fuel, arrived.
It was n busy night, but the total elenn-up wns
only ordinary, At live o'clock l wont to bed, awaking an hour later. I was fidgety and couldn't sloop.
I rang for u drink of booze, which I never touched In
business hours, and tbe bar hoy fetched It.
"The Indies are up," snld he. "I was dozln' In the
bar. an' they came n-wnlklng' In, wnnderlu' what

tend to it."
What the devil did nuy one want lo get up In the
middle of the ulght for? Why didn't they sleep? I
pondered a moment. The cook hnd been up Using
the crew's supper at four-thirty, lie wouldn't feel
much like piling out.
"Can you cook?" 1 asked.
"Me?" said the Imrkeep. "Hully gee, no. But I'll

"Oh, curse it!" 1 breathed nnd arose; "thoy must

serve It.   He enu bo u waiter for once,"
We made the  k nnd Seoti stay up nfter thut.
Ome I stuck around and fed wilh 'em, nud I never
realized until I got to my room that a man who enme
to breakfast lu evening doilies must sur un dippy.
But tbey were game, After u look of surprise neither
erucked about It, I guve 'em credit, reflecting on it
At twelve thut ulght I lefl the club room and hurried down llie corridor to got some blank cheeks
which a loser was io till out for mo. Passing tbe girls'
door their voices reached me.
"1 have heard aulomobilos and carriage wheels for
throe nights, but I wouldn't wuke you," soared
through the transom. "Just now I stole out nud almost ran Into three men who were going toward what
Mr. Gnrvlti said wus only a storehouse. One said, 'I

The other one suid, 'Ph. sure It Is; he's one square

"Wc haven't boon hurt," said the other sleepily,
"lt Is not a den! You're dreaming, Mr. Sturgis ts a

"Do you know, then, that what he snld was chain*

"You've got a mush on hlm. you idiot," giggled
Jessie. "Any une could see that, I only wish Mr.
Sturgis would worry about me a Utile."
It seemed about time fur uie to lie on my way.

take him quick.

"A crnps game's speedy action." he observed.    "I

Ile probably wouldn't <-are so much for It Inlei, for
I fancied Hint tho sagacious Wllletts had a few pairs

the several slacks which tie had hough! on ihe numbers, lho double ami single "il," uud lhe color. 1 encouraged hlm wiili gay sallies.
"Oh, I'll boat you yet," Im shouted. "Hoy! Bring

Then he changed wlm! he proudly described as

He lost each bet, Finally be won n few small bets,
which reddened Ids face and brightened his eye
Five hundred dollars on red followed, nnd black
won. One thousand dollars on tho black was his next
effort. The ball .licked, and red came up. I milled
him merrily, and he quartered $1,000 on a new set
of numbers he fancied. The ball threatened for an
Instant In die on one of his numbers, but It wobbled, and rolled Anally Into a _!7 hole, nn which Hamlin had played in .Sim* the previous spin. Tiie double

thick velvet rug nml through II again in a spot
which mv foot covered. A pressure of my toe us I
smiled amiably at tlie fool regulated the speed of the
Splinting wheel and settled the fate of the ball. As
lhe huts aro made before the wheel spin- the answer
was easy. When he won It wns because I had to
ease hlm along, Naturally he cashed mighty few
hols, and watched the big ones raked In by the man
who nsimllv rolled the wheel, now acting ns croupier.
II was six A. M. wh ":-.:u!ln mined a dull eye
ou ine and thickly said Hint would be plenty. Ho
was pretty well boosed and very ugly. I had his
clack for $33,700. n good night's business.
Yukon escorted hint to a room, and when he had
flung himself upon the bed lie muttered something
nbout "stopping that chock." Thai's usually their
tlrst thought.
There was only one early boat for New York. 1 wan
aboard when It left the pier. When I got back to
Shelter Ilnv Burke met me with the machine.
-We've bad n hot time at ttie house." said he.
'■Hamlin woke up and swore he'd have you raided.
He was staiupin' around an' met up with the two
ladies an' one of Vm give him had Columbia! Tliey
had it sumpln' awful, boss, au' she bawled him nut
fur fair."
I was horrified. We broke all the speed laws getting home. "Where's ihal niultV" 1 whispered to
Yukon,  lie laughed cheerfully.
"At Hrst," said lie, "1 was going to lick the life

1 was all up In thc air. Hamlin was capnble of
making a beef to the authorities: all of onr sportive

"Well, old mau," I shouted Jovially, "how are you

To my surprise, he rushed up to me, and shook

•Thank the Lord there was enough to meet It," he
sighed. "1 was itfraid there wasn't, and Garvin said

By the death o! Mc. Lionel Brough,
ihf English stage has lust ono ol its
must distinguished ornaments. The
end earao at his residence, Percy
Villa, South Lambeth Road, London,
where tho famous comedian had been
lying unconscious for nearly a week,
Onr ol the most popular men or* the
stage, ho was horn in 1836 at l'onty-
pool, Monmouthshire, and belonged
to one oi the best known theatrical
[amilice in England. His lather,
Barnabas Brough, was a dramatist,
o[ whose four sons two wero ■lianiui-
Rts, one a scientific writer, and the
fourth, Lionel himself, an actor. The
eldest   sou   had   two children, one    of
whom is the well-known actress, Miss
Fanny Brough, and the other the
theatrical manager, Mr. Robert
Brough. Mi. Lionel Brough'u own
three children—Percy, Mary and
Sydney—are all on the stage, Brough
was educated at a grammar school
m Manchester, but he eould not
spend manv vears over bunks, inueh
as lu* loved them, his father being
far from well-on, and wanting him
to earn his own livelihood, Accordingly, when still a lad, he went to
London and obtained employment as
an niiia* bov at the "Illustrated
London News." Here he remained a
few years, und only left in order to
become an assistant to tho publisher
of the "Daily Telegraph." It was
during this period that Brough originated the system of selling news-
inpers in the streets, a staff of 210
hoys being dressed in uniform (whieh
Included glazed hats), and furnished
with copies whieh thev were to coax
pedes! riatis to purchase. The idea
caught on, but the bovs were not
faithful, for four months later only
Nil members of thc brigade were still
at work, the others having disappeared, and caused their uniforms to dis-
ppear also! It was at thc Lyceum
in December, 1851, that Brough made
his debut on the stage. The manageress was Mine. Vestris, and the
piece, written by thc aetor's brother,
William Brough was 'Prince Prottj
Pet and the Butterfly." But this
experience on the "boards" was of
little duration, for in lfif)7 he returned to jmirnlaism, and until 181(3 was
subeditor of tho "Morning Star."'
Thc life of an actor, however, suited
him hetter than the work of a newspaper ollice, and at thc earliest op-
•orliiiiity after leaving the staff ol
the now forgotten dally paper, he
started giving entertainments.
In 1804 he assisted in an amateur
entertainment at Liverpool, given hy
lbe members of the Savage club (of
whieh he was one of the founders)
in aid nf the Lancashire relief fund,
and tbe performance was witnessed
by Alexander Henderson, who, immediately recognizing Brough's tal-
inent, offered him a regular engagement. "The company consisted of
many actors who have since become
famous, among them Irving, Bancroft, Wyndham, Toole and John
Hare, and we were all getting about
the same salary. £'i a week, which
wc regarded then as a large
amount." In January, isi>8, Lionel
Brough made bis first success as
Uncle Hen in Byron's "Dearer Than
Life," at the Queen's, Longaere, the
company including, Toole, Charles
Wyndham, Henry Irving, Henrietta
tlodson (Mrs. Henry Labouchcre) and
John Clayton.     The next year Mrs.
lean Wood engaged him to appear at
the St. James's, where he made
another great hit as Tony Lumpkin,
which he played for 200 nights. In
1872 Bouclcault secured bis services
as "first low comedian," By this
time tbe actor was in such request
tbat be could choose what he would
do. Old comedy always attracted
turn, ami he did excellent work at
tbe Gaiety and at tbe Imperial,
Westminster, as Scrub in 'The
Beaux Stratagem." Ollapod in Coleman's "The Poor Gentleman," Marplot in "The Country Girl." Croaker in "The Good-Nat It red Man"; and
at tin' Imperial, under tbe mana.**c-
iiieiit of Miss Lytton, be made a
singularly quaint and effective
Touchstone. His association with
Sir Herbert (then Mr.) Beerbobm
Tree was an important incident in
bis career. One of tbe earliest
Shakespearian essays of the afterwards manager of His Majesty's was
"Tlie Merry Wives of Windsor," given at the Crystal Palace in September, ISSN, witb Mr. Brotlffh—"Lai,"
as In- was called by a multitude of
friends—as Bardolph. His adaptability enabled him to supply a
remarkably finished performance of
Taffy in the popular "Trilby," but
it is perhaps ns Sir Toby in
"Twelfth Nigbl" tbat be will be
chiefly recollect nl. He had, truly,
many talents, and be served under
many masters. He bad appeared at
nenrlv everv first-class theatre in tbe
United Kingdom and had loured witb
success in America and South Anicr-

The most import announcement affecting tbe material development of

tiou tu build the National Transcontinental railway was made at Ottawa last week by the premier. He

of the Carnegie Hero fund this

of heroism lay in rescuing from
drowning a companion, Miss Abble

Twenty Japanese were killed and
fifteen injured, several of them fatally, in a wreck of a work train on the
Great Northern railroad between
Vancouver and New Westminster on
Saturdav morning. One ol the injured was a white man, George W.
Kemp, a commercial traveler ot Vancouver, who was riding on the work
train. His feet were crushed and he
was internally injured. His condition is serious.
The train left Vancouver at «
o'clock in the morning on the way to
Sumas. When within a mile of the
eity limits of New Westminster the
train ran into a washed-out culvert.
The engine passed nearly over and
tlien fell. Fireman Kent and Engineer Beattiger jumped, escaping injury. Immediately behind the tender
was the bunk car in which 35 Japanese were sleeping. Thc engine
settled back until it stood almost on
end. Tlte Japanese car was caught
and smashed between the engine and
the tender. Half thc car was crushed to kindling wood and tho remainder, smashed in on thc sides,
slid further into the gully.
Three flat cars were piled on top of
each other, while thc caboose at the
rear remained on the track. In It
was Conductor Ellis, who escaped injury.

Thf Clirintnms shopping tratle cut
wt-ll under wav this week aim, juilg-
utg by the Mocks laid in hy lucal
merchants, will go merrily along
lur tilt; next three weeks. Christmas
is always a time ol strips aad wocty
tt» shoppers and store assistants,
much of which might be saved and
greater satisfaction obtained, il thc
strappers would set about securing
their Cliiistuias presents earlu-r in
the month. As a general rule just as
g.HHl bargains can be secured earlier
as later in tlie season, besides a
great lv hotter choice. Ktotowepers
and clerks are belter able to give
close attention to their customers
now than Diet will lw two weeks
hence and it will repay those in
search of I'hristmas presents to Stan
carefully now the holiday oHeiings
advertised in this and succeeding issues, make their choice early aud
have their gifts set aside, au
as to secure tho best selections with
Uie least annoyance and trouble to
Uie overworked store staffs.
Whilst definite returns of the local
option plebiscite are not in yet, and
will not be available until the open-
in; of tbe session, it is profcty clear
tbat the desired SO per cent of the
total vote polled for candidates was
not secured in favor id tbis measure.
ItrsiiTd majorities of the poll actually declared in favor ol Uic
plebiscite were obtained in sonic rid-
ii s, but so far as ean be at pre-
sedt obtained, in no riding was fill
per cent of the actual poll for candidates obtained. Hence, according
to the terms ol the plebiscite, there
will be no local option measure presented at tlu; ciitning session of the
Cabinet reconstruction is now the
order of the dav. The name id 11.
II. Watson, M.P.P. elect, oi Vancouver, is prominently mentioned us
successor to llim. It. G. Tatlow, as
minister o! finance. W. 11. Koss, of
Fernie, is also mentioned as a cabinet possibility. The Nelson Nc.vs is
putting up a fight to jeeure ior
Harry Wright, member -decl f- r Nelson city, a portfolio. Whilst ILitiy
Wright put up a good light und
gained for the Conservative cause a
noteworthy victory, the same may
lie said of Tom Caven, id this cuy.
In fact Mr. Caven's victory was the
more significant, in that this riding
bad always, heretofore, r->ttiii.ed a
Liberal. Moreover, Mr. Caven is b>
long odds inure entitled to till a vacancy iu the cabinet than Mr. Wright
in that, according to Premier McHride, himself, Mr. Caven is possessed of that special knowledge that
will be most serviceable to the government at tlw present juncture. It
will In; recalled that in his address
here, in bt-half of the candidature of
Mr. Caven, the premier laid special
stress upon the qualifications ot Mr.
Caven, if elected, to advise the government authoritatively on their
railway policy. Mr. Caven has
Iteen elected by a large majority and
it is up to the premier to mark his
appreciation of the vote thus polled
(or tbe government candidate by
selecting him as a colleague in In
new administration. The Cranbrook
riding is certainly one of. if not tin
most, important in South .-.astern
llritish Columbia, and it is only fair
that it should receive special recognition in face of the arguments advanced in favor of the choice of Mr.
Caven as its representative over
cither Mr. M. A. Mat-donaM or Mr.
.1. A. Pitch.
This is an age in which more money-
is spent ou agricultural colleges than
ever before, The provinces ot Canada are doing wisely in giving all
possible support to such institutions.
The Toronto News, referring to one
of the Ontario agricultural colleges,
says that no money spent hy tbe
Ontario government yields belter returns. So varied and effective nre
thc activities of such an institution
tbat it vitally touches thc agricultural industry in every phase of its
existence. New knowledge of immense economic value to the country
Is continually acquired. The science
ot chemistry and bacteriology arc
practically applied tu every department of agricultural development. A
perpetual war is waged against the
multifarious pests and diseases which
attack grain, fruit, vegetables and
live stock. The best methods of
preparing dairy products and fruit
fur market are explained. Progress
is being made in the heautificntiou
ot school yards and homesteads, and
altogether a great deal is being done
to advance economic, social and
aesthetic conditions throughout the
entire community. Intensive farming is encouraged to the exclusion of
cheap, wasteful, extensive farming,
and thereby the general prosperity is
materially increased. The farmers
are stimulated to engage in fruit
growing, dairying and in the production of bacon and poultry, because
these enable a given area of country
to yield more revenue and support n
larger population than do mere beef-
grazing and wheat growing.
Tbe foregoing remarks are as ap-
pliwhle to this province as to the
province of Ontario and it is to he
hoped that in the coming session of
the legislature the McHride govern-
ment will find time to formulate a
policy, along these lines, as well as
to perfect their railway policy. It
is specially desirable that there be
established au agricultural college, or
experimental farm in this section of
thq-province, wliere nericultural and
climatic conditions varv very considerable from those on the const aud
islam! sections.

country, simply looted the bunk-
boiuse opposite the livery barn ol

the amount of stuff he got away
with. The plunder consisted ' of
sbcepsbin-lined coats, rubbers, ' un-
derclotbtog, shirts, boots, razors and
a qusntoty ol other things. His
booty covered two tables in the -police tuurt when the matter came
to be dealt with the day after
the robbery was committed. When
arrested by Constable Adams. Fenty
had the razors in his possession and
the : * of the stolen property was
found to have been sold.
On coming before Police Magis-
t rate Ryan, Fenty consented to
be tried summarily rn that court
and pleaded guilty to the charge ot
stealing the goods which lietongud to

Rambling_ Reveries
All day tlif busy feel have trod the
Harden paths; all day the merry
voice has echoed through the rooms;
1ml now, when twilight is deepening
into night, and tlie lamps ol heaven
are being lighted, the noisy leet
grow still, the childish voice is
hns'lied to the low-breathing of tlie
evening prayer, and as the blown
head sinks wearily to rest upon its
pillow the nil lips murmur faintly,
"So tired."
Ah, tired one, uflimes thy leet will
(alter and grow weary ere they
reach lbe prime ol manhood; and lo
then will eome hours when not as
now the innocent sleep ol childhood
will bring thee reat.
Often Irom other lips than childish
ones has escaped a sigh, the burden
ol whieh lias lieen "So tired!'
Eagerly we toil lor an independence
whieh some day in tbe lar-of! future is to bring us rest; but
night alter night wc laid our weary
heads upon our pillows, wc are still
looking forward, still unsatisfied;
and thus 11 will ever be wilh us till
lhe Master calls. Sometimes ambition is the guiding star luring us
onward to (he temple ol lame. Uut
thr path is a thorny one; tlic footsteps [alter; Ihe brain grows di/.zy;
and (rom lhe heart goes forth tlie
cry, "So tired!" Yet temptingly a
siren voice whispers of glory, and of
rest, anil again the leet press lor-
wanl, till the goal is reached. But
alas! [or (he rest whieh ambition
lirings- Too olten with the cup
ol glory is mingled Hie poison ol
envy, and again is heard Ihe hitter
cry; "So tired!" 'Tis (bus we
all weary. Anil vet we would not
fold our hands in idleness, because
perchance, wc mav sometimes grow
good "faint with tlie burden nnd heat
ol tlie dav." To us has been given
a glorious privilege to press onward
in Ihe battle ot life, and il our
chosen path lie that ol truth and
right tlie assurance ot well-doing
will be our sweet reward when,
bv-and-hy. wc shall partake ol that
jov and peace ol which the blessed
never tire.
After a   woman    is   married   she
sometimes wishes she had hung up
horseshoe instead of a mistletoe.
If wc were asked a recipe lor cheerfulness, wc would say, humbly enjoy
tlie good gifts of Ood, love those
around you tenderly, realize tbat
amiability is a binding virtue, and
that wc arc bound to difluse joy
aroud us in our homes. But there
is just one more item in our prescription: wc must be willing to unbend, even to stoop to a little harmless folly. A love lor animals will
encourage this; the very presence of
these true but unassuming friends
will do our hearts good. Wc may
talk nonsense to them; they introduce an clement ol intellectual repose. Dogs, cats, horses, poultry,
arc so many contributions to the
gaiety and simplicity ol our daily
liic. Wc cannot enjoy them without
loving them. Wc are not going to
enter into the ranks of those who
contend that they have souls; still
wc hope our readers hold In equal
abhorrence with ourselves the systems ot Descartes and Malebranehe,
which would make them out to be
mere machines. We have but to
contemplate the dog that follows
us, watches our homes, shares our
fatigues and perils voluntarily, either
to sink at our side, or perhaps follow us to thc grave and die there, to
reply to thc theory of mere mechanism. Animals arc, in some sort,
members ot thc family. They arc
the friends ol young and old, and
old and young alike enjoy and benelit
hy their gleeful, Irrational society.
There is only a card in thc envelope that a friend sends us—a little
card edged with black, and bearing a
lew sad words, saddest of which is
"died." Only a card, but two
lond hearts have wept over It, and it
has eome to us the message ol
stirrow. Only a card, ai much white
as black, possibly a little more. It
is fitting so. It was a pure spirit
that winged its way heavenward
when this little bud was plucked on
earth to bloom In heaven; a pure
spirit, white and unsullied. The
black shadow ol grief should seem
less to us than thc sweet purity
which will now never be tarnished.
Only a lew days upon earth. .Iust a
little workday week of Iile, with no
strength for labor, and then a Sabbath at its ending that shall know
no end lorever and forever. Only a
narrow edging ol black; for could
such a little being cast a broad
shadow hack as it went sunward?
"Ah, yes, It might," thc heart says,
until it stops a moment to remem-
dor. Remembering, it hears the
echo ol a sweet word long since uttered: "Sufler little children to conic
unto mc," and thc shadow lessens,
lessens, until wc see It not at all,
hut look straight on to the brightness that shall never grow dim.
"Slider Hide children;" not lead
Ihem, nol carry them, only sufler
tbem. Then they must want to go.
And do they not" Standing so
near thc "pearly gates" as they do,
who can tell what music they hear,
what balmy airs blow on them? It
is easy for them to slip away Irom
lbe loving arms here to thc loving
arms there. Easy tor them, but so
hard lor us! So hard! We cannot
sec them as they go, tor the weeping;
but wc know they arc gone by the
dull pain In our arms that clasp
nothing. "Died!" How many
hearts will echo it sadly and with
tears! Many children are leaving
us weekly, finishing their short
weeks ol life and entering on the
Sabbaths never ending. A tender
good-bye to them all—a tender handclasp lor all who weep their loss.
Losing is thc common lot, and weeping the heritage of humanity; but
the losing and tho weeping will end
finally in finding and joy. Those of
our renders who stili have an unbroken family circle cannot value the
prize too highly.

preparing (ot a spring rush to the
lltuiicau country, a somewhat isolat-
eii ilistriet where one of thu famous
"lost mints" ot the west has just
been re-located.
For 31) yvars Ihere has been a tradition of a sheepherder who came to
civilization with samples of quart?,
yellow with free gold and told his
friends of a great ledge from which
this sample was taken. Starting
back, at once, he disappeared ami was
never heard of again.
The finding of a skeleton recently in
tiie region where the sheepherder was
located caused a revival of the story
and a renewed search for the storied
ledge. The search is said to have
hei-n successful. D. A. Bourne, one
of lhe pioneer discoverers, has returned from thr Hruneau and gives details of thc developments there. Ho
says the ore is a telluride and carries
values as high as $80,000 to the ton,
that the smallest return from a ran-
ilotn sample was $80 a ton and thuro
is in sight on the surface ore to thc
value of $I,7nO,(>00. It can be quarried like building stone, the prns|iec-
tor declares. His statement follows:
"The Lost Sheepherder's mine was
talked of and generally counted upon
for 30 years prior to my discovery. I
heard about it myself and looked
upon the story as one of those yarns
that a mining
to hearing. That such a mine existed
I was not so sure, but I knew if it
did exist it could not possibly be as
rich as the yarn would indicate. In
tlie fall of last year I decided to
leave Ely and do a little prospecting.
I had no particular point in Nevada in
view, but just struck out ot the hills
iti the general direction of thc country where tlie mysterious mine was
supposed to be. I came in through
what is known as Duck valley bv the
way of Three creek-
"I followed aloug the contact for
lib miles hefore I reached tlie lost
mine. The surface indications looked very encouraging, and I had a notion that, it might be possible to
discover the much discussed property,
if, Indeed, there were such. Nine
miles from where the best showings
are today I found cold. All this
time I had been panning along the
creek, with varied success. When,
however, I did discover the yellow
metal the rest was easy, as every
place along the outcroppings that I
sampled showed gold.
"One day while prospecting along
the country I came across the skeleton of a man and near by a shovel
handle. I thought then that I had
surely discovered the lost mine, and
that' the charred bones before me
were those of tlie mysterious sheep-
herder, whose reports were so vague
but who brought out some of tlte
finest appearing rock that thc natives
had ever seen.
"The property was really discovered by me on November 17, 1908, and
the first any one besides myself knew
.bout it was on the 14th of October
this year, wbtii I went to Hruneau
and told the people what was up
there. I knew then I -had thc ore
and I was satisfied that it was the
greatest bonanza ever unearthed In
the west. To tell one what is there
is useless, for the average man woiild
not believe it, so great is the whole
"The North Star claims are located
about 100 miles due south from
Hruneau, at Jawhridge, almost at
the headwaters of the Hruneau river.
The first thing we intend to do is to
build a Ill-stamp mill, which will
treat about 50 tons of ore a day.
This will be possible, because the ore
a free-milling ami will be very easy
o handle.
"The extent ol the vein of out-
Toppings is not yet known. I know
that for 1400 feet I have followed it
ami at no place was it less than -10
feet in width and some places much
wider. 1 have not been able to find

the most remarkable features about
it is that vou ean not dig into the

who have seen the district. Tliey atl
say it is almost too hlg to grasp. 1

"1 have been with the hest samplers and engineers who flocked to the
countrv when the reports were circulated around and wc sampled every
place along the outcroppings. We
sampled in places where wc believed
positively that there was no mineral
and the lowest assay we could get
was $86.
"We got to figuring hefore I left
and wc just said, tor example, that
the ore would run only $20 to the
ton on the average. At that figure
—and it is many times higher, we
know—there is now in actual sight
and with little mining fl,750,000; in
fact, to speak conservatively, tliere
are millions of dollars in sight.
"There are about 300 people there
now and in the spring I look to see
thousands there. Log houses and

The question of whether or not a
game of blackjack, when played between a party of friends, is a gambling game in the eyes of thc law, is
to be determined sometime between
now and next Saturday by Magistrate Williams. Police constables
about 5 o'clock on Thursday morning
found several men playing blackjack
in the Ituss hotel and this morning
the proprietors, Johnston it I'allan,
were summoned to police court.
Mr. .1. A. Russell, their counsel,
contended that iu a friendly game
of blackjack the chances are equal,
there is no banker in a legal sense
and the "house" profits nothing.
City Prosecutor Kennedy claimed
that the ease had already been decided and that there was a banker, each
man turning a blackjack being hanker in the sight ot tlie law and that
the deal did not pass around Irom
player to player, but was determined
by chance.

London, Nov. at).—In tlie serene detached manner characteristic of tbe
proceedings in the gilded chamber,
and in direct disregard of the advice
of some ot its ablest and oldest
members such as Lord Kosebcry,
Lord Morley, Lord James of Hereford, Lord Cromer, Lord Balfour, ot
Burleigh, the Earl of Lytton, Lord
Courtney and the Archbishop ot Canterbury, thc House of Lords today
created a situation unprecedented in
Knglish history tor at least 300
years hy refusing formal assent to
the budget bill and referring it to
the country itself for judgment,
thereby making it illegal to collect
taxes for carrying on the king's government.
After six days' debate, notable for
the high standard of oratory, as well
as for thc able and convincing arguments arrayed on both sides for and
against the measure, and placing
every possible light all the aspects
of the great constitutional questions
Involved, the House ot Lords cleared
for division at 11.30 o'clock. Thc
scene was impressive, but in
sense exciting, except that the bouse
was packed to its utmost capacity
and a ureal array ot strange faces
were seen on tbe benches owing to,
the presence of numbers ot peers, who
only appear In the house in most exceptional cases.
None would have supposed that Uie
event proceeding was destined not
only to prove memorable in the annals of llritish history but possibly
also involving far-reaching changes in
the British constitution. There certainly wns unusual animation in the
public galleries, which were crowded
with peeresses, members of the
house ot commons, ambassadors and
others, but in the house it-self complete calm prevailed. There was
none ot the tense excitement or exub-
erance of a similar occasion in the
lower house.
Thc vote was on Lord I_ans~
downc's amendment that the house
was not justified In giving its consent to the bill until it had been submitted to thc judgment of the country. Nearly 15 minutes were occupied in clearing the house, the
tellers for the division being Earl
Waldergravc, Viscount Churchill,
Baron Demnan and Lord Clehrook.
When the vote was announced just
before midnight as 3S0 to 75 in favor
of the amendment, a few mixed
cheers were heard.

I   A tragedy ol love has been revealed
j by the discovery recently ol the dead
bodies ui a man and a girl on       the
I railway embankment at Yardley
Wood, neat Birmingham. The girl
had one bullet wound in the breast
and Uie man two shots in the head.
Tlit*    man lias    been identified  as a
i young sui'ionl hairdresser named
William Hacbdon, and the girl as
Marian Rlckn.au, tlie ulnetecn-year-
old daughter of a Birmingham motor
operative. Some monlna ago Mac-
boon obtained a situation iu Birmingham , and became acquainted
wiib ihe girl, hut Lheir courtship,
which was clandestine, was broken
nil when Miss Hickman discovered
ihal hei lover was a married man
living apart trom bis wile. Thoy
parted, bui met again on the railway
embankment, where tho bodies wero
tound. There were uo signs ol a
struggle, and they must have climbed some lui;h railings lo got to the
spill. Tbe man's name and address
v.as written Insldfi his cap, and on
lus collar iu a [emitting hand was the
address ot tlie girl.
The story ot a tragedy due to unemployment was unfolded at Wandsworth recently in an inquest into
tho death ol Herbert Boreliam. aged
titty, whose body was found in a
pond on Wimbledon common, Bore-
man left a letter addressed to
"Whom it may concern-11 In ihis
letter he wrote: "After two months1
continuous advertising in the London
newspapers I must at laBt admit
thai I am beaten in the struggle to
obtain the means oi living. In any
ease, at my age it would be difficult
to get a situation. There is only
one alternative—death—and after
much consideration this I have chos-
rii." The letter concluded with the
lollowing stanza Irom Byron: '
"fount o'er the joys these hours
have seen,
fount o'er the days from anguish
And know whatever there has lieen,
Tis something hetter not to be."
There was a tearful scene in a
London police court one duy recently,
when n little fellow named Beau-
ehamp was charged with wandering.
The lad's father being in custody on
a charge of receiving stolen properly,
the buy had no one to care for him,
so the officer who arrested the father
look charge of him. Bcauchamp,
sr., standing in thc dock, leaned
over, sobbing violently, embraced his
little son, who, clinging lo liis father, cried bitterly, "Oh, daddie, don't
let them take me away." "Call
yourself a man?" said the prisoner,
turning to the ollicer. "The proper
thing to do with you would be lo put
a bullet in yon. If I had live minutes with you in thc cells, I would
show you what a man is—telling
lies about a child of twelve." The
magistrate ordered the boy's removal
to a school, and as the man returned
to bis cell he broke out into distracted   cries.
A shower ol    gold astonished     a
group     ot porters on thc Liverpool
landing-stage on llie departure of   a
New York    liner recently.   A     well
dressed young man leant over      the
rail of the     vessel and, seeing   some
landing-stage porters busily engaged
in settling up their earnings, he suddenly plunged bis hand into his pocket and pulled out a gold coin   which
came burling through the air on    to
the siage.    Other coins followed in a
bright shower,    and the excited por-
eis made u scramble to secure    the
ineteil money.    The men got mixed
P iu the melee, falling over     each
i ber, and     generally having a rare
tissle. much to     lhe delight   of    all
ho saw them.     As the ship steered
way  the gold shower ceased.     The
.centtie donor ot the money was the
i>n of an American millionaire,   but
lus Identity   could not be established.
Tbe story of a brave rescue in the
English Channel comes from Deal.
As the Liverpool sailing ship Holt
Hill was proceeding up the Channel
-sbe encountered a heavy gale,
.mil ono of her apprentices fell overboard from the rigging. Despito the
furious seas, the male of the Holt
Hill nnd four of her crew gallantly
volunteered to man one of the lifeboats and make an effort to rescue
tho bid. They succeeded in reaching
bun and gelling the young fellow In
to the boat, hut owing to the gale it
was absolutely impossible to regain
the ship. Fortunately, a steamer
sighted the gallant little crew, and
took them up, but left the bunt, as
it was not possible to get her
aboard. The men were taken on to
Ostend, and later in the day rejoimd
their ship at Deal.
A strange statement was made lo
the Fariibiini guardians the other day
by the relieving officer, who said that
a voung woman named Milane had
told bim that she was married while
under the spell of mesmerism. Tlie
woman applied to lite relieving of-
Qcci for an order for thc workhouse, sbe said she was twcnly-
eighl years of age, and that her husband who was seventy-eight, was a
knight ol tin* Legion of Honor, "lie
mesmerized me before the marriage,"
sla* alleged, "und I wus under the
spill when the ceremony toui. place.
When I woke up and found wli.tt
had occurred, 1 lelt linn Immediately
ami tore up my marriage certificate,
lie was a veteran soldier, und had
seven medals." The relieving officer
staled thai the older had been given
to ihe woman, who, however, had
mi made use ol it.
A remarkable story was told to
the Rochdale    police recently by   ji
young niun named (ieorge Hunt. He
slated that he wus traveling from
lleywood to Uoehdalc on the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway at
night, when he was attacked tiy tout
men, who lobbed him of his wages
nud Hung him from the compart*-
ment. He lay on lbe lino unconscious and a "passing train severed
both his feel. On regaining his
senses ho called for help, hut none
Wiis forthcoming. The man asserts
that he then crawled ou his hands
und knees a distance of three hundred
yards to the Oale Inn, which is a
mile from Rochdale station, und hud
to descend a steep embankment am)
crawl through two fences on his
wny. On being conveyed to the
Rochdale Infirmary his legs were amputated below the knees.
Early one morning recentlv n constable on duty on the Westminster
district of London found the door of
the post office iu Stanley street unlocked, and upon examination be ascertained that burglars hud paid a
visit. The officials at the head ofliee were apprised, and it was then
discovered that the safe and its
contents, weighing about two cwt.,
had been removed, lu the safe over
night hud been left a considerable
quantity of cash nnd postal and
money orders amounting to several
hundreds of pounds. Stanley street
is a quiet part of Westminster, and
the thieves seem to have got away
without creating any disturbance.
The safe wns discovered by the police
ou a rubbish heap In another part of
Loudon. The back had been broken
und the contents removed.
An interesting ceremony was enacted at Cardiff the other day when
an equestrian statue, erected in
honor of Viscount Tredegar, who ns
a captain took part in the charge ol
the Light Brigade, was unveiled by
thc Karl of IMvmoulh in the presence
of a lurge gathering. Lord Tredegar, who is in his 80th year, was
visibly moved by the ceremony, aud
In a brief address hc_ recalled the
Words ol the French general upon the
charge of the Light brigade: "lt is
magnificent, but it is not war." "1
don't know exactly what that general
would call war," remarked his lordship, amid laughter, "but the charge
was something very nearly like
While a number of officers were being instructed in the management of
war kites at Aldershot one Afternoon
lately, one of them met with a serious accident, which may have very
grave consequences, Each officer in
turn took his seat in the car, und
made the ascent up a cable which
wits carried by kites to an altitude
of alio feet. ' When Lieutenant t'ros-
bic, ot tdc Itoyal Garrison artillery,
went up be let the clutch go too
soon on making the descent, with
the result that the car ran down the
cable ul a terrific rate, and ended
with a crush. Thc occupant was
thrown out, and sustained very serious internal injuries.
Quite a sensation was caused in
most of the London lower middle-
class suburbs the other morning
when they were invalided liy an army
of girls in red tum-o-shanters, blue
gowns, and big aprons. They cleaned thc steps and polished doorknockers, and each of her own proper

While personally preient on nur property at Stewart River,
Yukon Territory, Klondike, September 1st, I saw with my own
eyes a clean-up from our first and smaller dredge, netting $317.50,
nnd this was preceded only a few rlayi hy another clean-up from
llie lame dredge amounting to $1283.86 in Gold. I saw this Cold,

bullion—a solid bar of Gold.

our second dredge went on—larger and stronger than the lirst—and is
already at wotk.
We control by direct lease from lhe Canadian Government, One
Hundred and Five (105) miles of Dredgable Gravel on the Stewart
River, eighty miles from Dawion City, in tlie Klondike. We have

country, a baby six months old was
operated on for appendicitis, Tlie
The operation was performed by one
of the hading surgeons of the city at
Grace hospital, with the result tbat
tho Infant's life was saved. The
wee patient was Ralph Thome. Tbe
case was diagnosed last night as appendicitis, and when the tiny altdo-
mcii was opened the wisdom of the
hasty operation was demonstrated.
Tne appendix was found to be greatly
inflamed and abnormally targe, being
six Inches in length, the size of an
adult's. The doctors say the babe
will undoubtedly recover.
Many people who hellevc in advertising are not fully awake to the
necessity of system in advertising.
Tbey advertise now and then In a
disconnected sort of way, and pay
but little attention to the follow-up
system. Thu one thing that should
convince lbe average business man
who has not given much time ami
though! to advertising is Ihat it has
commercial value of tho highest order, that it really is a higher evolution of commerce and a marked im-
irovcmcnt ou average commercial
conditions, as is evidenced bv     the
-towing spirit on the part ot owners
of advertising space to restrict the
use of the same to customers whose
hnsiness Is desirable.
