THOMAS KENNEDY.
Ki:EI>  YOUR MONEY   AT HOME.
Spend it With ihe People Who Spend it
With You.
There te a prevailing Idea among some
people living in western towns that ii te
to their interest to trade with Uie large
department stores in Toronto. Tins Is a
Berlousmistake, It is possible that in
some eases a slight reduction on tlie
prices charged by the luciil merchant
may be secured, yet it is to the interest
of every man, woman uml child to keep
tlte trade at home. 'Hie merchant is at
large expense and every dollat of money
he expends tlmt w iy ilit* people of Craubrook net a direct or indirect benefit
Towns me not built on the money sent
away, nor is business Increased Jaud
prosperity secured by the peupk- patronizing eastern Institutions. Tin. Hek-
ai.d believes that the in an who makes
his money in Cranbrook should spend it
here. It is supposed Unit he is doing
better here thuu he would elsewhere or
he would not he here. The least he or
hia family can do is patronize home
merchants. This is business, and it is
right. Thk Herald publishers have
never sent u dollar oul of the town for
anything that could be bought here.
They have paid a greater price at times,
and they are glad of it, for the money
was spent with the people who contribute to the sttppoit of Tin. Herald.
Il is a mighty mean man who will insist on western prices for hia labor aud
eastern prices for his purchases. Fortunately there are very few of lhat kind in
Cranbrook, and those few should stop.
It will soon be the tlrst of Jutmary, aud
that is a good time for making resolutions. Let every man or woman in
Cranbrook start out with the resolve to
patronize home merchants aud home
people. It is a policy that will win
every time.

There never was a better crowd of

few weeks quite a number of them have
been stopping at Macleod, aud the towu

Very Few Like Frew.
The lecture delivered last Monday
evening at the Presbyterian church by
Uev. P. W. Frew, of Nelson, was an unqualified success. The gentleman was
introduced by Rev, Duncan, of Fort
Sleele. The lecture was upon the subject, "Europe Revisited," and from the
very beginning to tbe last Scotch story
at the end was most interesting. Rev.
Frew possesses a quaint sense of humor
and has a happy way of giving it expression. His descriptions were vivid,
aud he carried the listener from the sublime to the ridiculous, from smiles to
tears, and back from shadow to sunshine with an ease that left a most favorable impiession upon all. As a story
teller he is superb, and the people of
Cranbrook hope that tbey may have the
pleasure of hearing him again.

It is rumored that a Fernie visitor got
iuto a friendly game of poker one night
last week and lost a few hundred to a
local sport. The loser immediately protected himself, however, by warning tbe
bank here and at Fernie not to pay the
checks issued. Auy man who loses his
coin in a square game is iu mighty little
business to crawl out of the hole in that
way. It is better not to gamble, but if
you do and lose, be a man or a long-
tailed rat.

SALAD  and.*
dt DRESSING
The West Kootenay excursionists, who
arrived in Cranbrook Wednesday of last
week and were entertained by the busiuess men of Craubrook, left the next
day for Fernie, where they met with a
royal recepliou at the hands of the
Crows Nest Coal Company. They were
given a luncheon aud sbown the coke
oveus, lhe mines aud the great siwiiiill,
aud oue and all were most favorably impressed with tbe bright prospects of lhat
town. Returning from Fernie to Doris,
the switch at tbe nearest point on the
railroad to Fort Steele, they were met
by sleighs from onr neighboring town
uud taken to the origiuul town of South
Fast Kootenay, where they were wined
and dined to their hearts' content at the
Vi-nosta restaurant, a most elegant
spread having been prepared for Ihem
in Harry Reiueuiau's best style. Toasts
were prepared and responded to by the
visitors and residents of Fort Steele.
R. L. T. Gtdhraith gave an eutertainiug
account of Fort Steele from the time
Noah bought pelts froui the Kootenay
Indians. "Little Willie" Ress extended
a cordial welcome to the guests with
that seductive smih of his, and assured
them that Fort Steele was the coming
metropolis of Canada. Dr. Watt, iu his
ex-legislative tone and winning manner,
jollied the visitors, West Kootenay as a
whole, Fust Kootenay, the Dominion,
aud said a good word on the side for
Divine Providence. The doctor, as an
artistic jollier, cannot be equalled. J. T,
Harvey, with bis soiior-ous voice nnd
lignitied mien, as chairman, spoke often
and spoke well, und each time the fame
of Fort Steele grew greater aud the town
larger until it appeared like a cheese iu
wire case—tbe whole thing. There
were two eloquent speeches that embodied tbe good feeling tbat existed between the towns of South Hast Kootenay;
speeches that were thrilling as well me
interesting, tilled wilh brotherly love
and neighborly kindness, but they were
not delivered for the reason that neither
}. W. H. Smythe or Judge Hutchison,
who represented Cranbrook at the banquet, were called upon.
ii    is     tt
Both at Feruie and Fort Steele the
visitors were loud in their praise of East
Kootenay and the people of Craubrook,
and when tbey returned to Craubrook
they had many words of praise for the
treatment they had received at Fort
Steele. But one remark that caused
The Herald man to feel good that he
lived in Cranbrook was made by a Nelson man. Speaking of the tnp, be said:
"I noticed at the Cranbrook banquet
your people had liltle to say of Cranbrook. In tact, you scarcely mentioned
it. Vou all talked for Bast Kootenay aa
a whole, and at uo time htld up Cranbrook as tbe best town. That speaks
well fer your town and your people.
Vou left us to judge for ourselves, and
the visitors noticed this. Cranbrook
made a host of friends by the manner in
which the people entertained tbeir
visitor**." Tbat expresses the spirit of
Cranbrook. There is nothing small
about the town or her people. Tbey are
for East Kootenay as a whole, aud are
perfectly willing to take tbeir chances
in the growth of this valley without saying anything that would tend to injure
any other town in the same section.
it     it     ii
Among the visitors from West Kootenay was F. ti. Archer, one of tbe prominent business men of Kaslo aud a
member of the city council. He wasa
pleasant visitor to The Herald office,
and had many good things to say of
Cranbrook end her bright future.
Speaking of the pending by-law giving
a salary to the mayor and aldermen of
Kaslo, Mr. Archer said that Mr. Harlin
with himself opposed the measure from
tbe start, sad he hor ed they would be
able to defeat it.
The excursionists left on their special
about ten o'clock, stopping in Moyie ■□

Copper Id South East Kootenay.
Copper mining is to be revived in tbe
Northern Hills of South Dakota. The
propositions discovered there carry
values ranging from 2 to 25 per cent, but
(ar more below 2$ per cent than up to
that mark. South Kast Kootenay offers
the best field for capital today for copper
miuing. The positive values presented
are sufficient to guarantee magnificent
returns, aud what is more, they are
located in easy reach of transportation.
South Fast Kootenny. when more fully
developed in a mineral way, will prove
to be a ureat copper district. Exports
who have been over the ground all

VALUE OF THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER.
Dave King, for years identitkd with
tlie Kaslo Kootenaian as editor and publisher, has deserted the editorial tripod
mil i*. now representing the Great Falls
smeller in the Kootenays. It will seem
strange to the people of Kaslo to see
other men iu Dave King's place oil the
Kootenaian. lie made it oue of thc best
weekly papers in Canada, and ih rough
its columns spread the fame and name
Kaslo and West Kootenay over two continents. Much of tbe progress of Kaslo
and the investment of capital in that
city aud tributary territory is due to his
'Units through the Kootenaian. He
demonstrated what a live newspnpei
man can ilo toward promoting the best
interests of a community, and without a
doubt gave material assistance toward
bringing wealth to many people, und
perhaps made nothing himself. That is
generally the result wilh the publishers
of pioneer newspapers. They are energetic and patriotic, aid being thoroughly
imbued with local patriotism nml pride,
they give to their town the best paper,
the best plant, the most costly equip'
ment iu every wny. The people like il
because it speaks well for a town, aud
too often causes the publisher to succumb lo the pressing ".entreaties of the
sheriff.
As a rule the people of British Columbia
appreciate the worth of a newspaper and
show tbeir appreciation iu a material
way. They know that the local paper is
a persistent worker iu their behalf; that
it never ceases to push forward the besl
interests of llle to All; lhat it is al ways
bringing people in to investigate, and
causes many to remain and invest their
money. The majority of the people of
Cranbrook take this view of the matter,
and believe that the labor bf lhe news
paper publisher is worthy of its hire.
Now and then tbere will be a man of
different stripe, but tlle people all know
him, for llie sum _• sprit that causes him
lo deny any support whatever to his
local newspaper will reveal his true
nature to the public. Aud such mm are
not public favorites aind find it bard lo
maintain trade iu auy community,
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
The Kamloops Standard has ceased to
print a semi-weekly and returned to the
once-a-weel; form of publication. Theie
are several other papers iu British Columbia tbnt have done likewise, nnd a few
Hint fllldllld dn so as quick as thc Lord
and their foolish pride will let thein.
The Hekai.d, at the time the Standard
was changed into a semi-weekly, predicted .. failuie, and with good reason.
A good weekly beats a poor sumi-weekly
and costs less, while lhe revenue from
the latter is no more. Tbe semi-weekly
fad is a fraud. It robs the publisher,
displeases tbe reader, dissatisfies the advertiser, and raises hades all along the
line. The best thing to do with a semi
weekly is lo quit it.

There is a discussion going on at til
present time regarding the question of
tlle members of church congregations
giving closer attention to what thc
preacher says. If n preacher says anything woith heaiiug he is generally
given close attention, There are preachers and preachers, and some are all righ1

smiths, punters, anything, in fact, but

in this mailer—mistakes are found in
every profession and branch of business.

didn't, feel half sorry, lo tell you the
truth. The beggar bad been swaggering over his blessed tliijimniiii ever since
he oamc aboard,
"A thing Ilko that goes from stem to

was talking about it. Padishah went

imd law, like mosl of (hoseblessed Ben-
galls, nud talked of having it llfltl "lithe

who said his son wasa London barrister,
argued that whnt n bird swallowed l**-

an notion for damages, and even then
it might bo possible to show i tributary negligence, lie hadn't nny plifht

all talked pretty free, At last, aftor
Vden, ii appears that he came round to
lhe general opinion, and went privately
to the uiiin iu charge anil made un oitor
for all five ostriches.
"The next morning there was a tine
shindy at breakfast. The man hadn't
any authority to deal with tlie birds,
ami nothing on earth would Induce him
to sell; but it seems he told Padishah
thut a Eurasian named Potter luul til-
rendy made him (ill offer, und on that
Padishah denounced Potter before us
all. But I think lhe mostof ua thought
it. rather smart of Potter, ami I know
that wlicu Potter said Hint, he'd wired

bu parted with a feather of them—tlmt
ho meant to kill them off one by one.
uud tlml thvdlnnioiul; but afterwards.
thinking it over, he relented1 a little.
He was a gambling hound, was this
Potter, a little queer at card-**., and thia
kind of prize-packet business must have
suited hhn down to the ground. Anyhow, he offered, for a lark, to sell the
birds separately to sejarute people by
auction at a starting price of £.80 for U
bird. Hut one of them, he said, he
meant ta keep for luck,
"Vou must uiidt'i'st'ind this diamond
wns h valuable one—a little Jew cbnp,
a diamond merchant, who was witli us,
had put it ut threo or four thousand
when Padishah luid shown it to him -
and   this   idea of an   o-slrich   gamble
caught on. Now it happened that I'd
been having n few talks on geaiornl
subjects with the man who looked of Ier
these ostriches, und quite incidentally
he'd suid one of the birds was ailing,
and he fancied it hud Indigestion. It
luul one fentlierfl in its tail almost all
white, by which 1 knew it, nud so when,
next day, the unction stalled with it,
1 capped Padishah's 85 by 00. I fancy 1
W*as a bit too sure and eager with my
bid, and some of the others spotted the
fuet thnt. I wuh lu the know, Ami Par
dlshahwent for thnt particular bird like
nn irresponsible lunatic. At last the
Jew diiumond merchant got It for
i* I To, and Padishah sold £180 just
nftor Hie hammer came down—so Pot-
tor declared. At any rate the Jew mer-
chant secured it-, and there and then
he. got a gun mid shot it. Potter made
n hades of u fuss because he said it
would injure the {.ale of Vhe other three,
and Padishah, of course, behaved like
nu Idiot; but alt of us were very much
excited. I can tell you 1 was precious
glad when that dissection wus over,
and no diamond had turned up—pre-
clous glad. I'd gone to one-forty on that
particular bird myself.
"The littlo Jew wns like most Jews-
he didn't make any great fuss over Imd
luckjbut Potter declined to go ou with
the auction until it was understood
that the goods could not be delivered
until the sale was over. Tho little Jew
wanted to argue that the ease was exceptional, and as the discussion ran
pretty even, the thing wns postponed
until the next morning, We had a lively dinner-table that evening, I enn toll
you, but in the end. Potter got bis way.
since il would stand to reason he would
be safer if he stuck to all the birds, and
that we owed him some consideration
for his sportsman-like behavior. Aud
the old gentleman whose .son was a lawyer said he'd been thinking thc thing
over and that it was very doubtful if,
when n bird bad been opened and the
diamond recovered, it ought not to be
bunded buck to thc proper owner. 1 remember 1 suggested It came under the
laws of the treasure-trove—which was
really the truth of the matter. There
wns a hot argument, and we settled it
was certainly foolish to kill the bird on
hoard the ship, fjiprj (he old gentleman, going at large through his legal
talk, tried to make out the sule wus n
lottery ami illegal, and appealed to the
captain: but Potter said he sold the
birds us ostriches. He didn't want to
sell any diamonds, lm said, ami didn't
offer that as ail inducement. The three
birds he put up, to the best of his
knowledge nnd l>elief, did not contain
a diamond. It was in the one he kept—
so be hoped,
"Prices ruled high next dny ull the
same. The fact that uow there were
four chances instead of five of course
caused a ltev. The blessed birds
averaged two hundred nnd twenty-
seven, nnd, oddly enough, this Padtsha
didn't secure one of 'em—not one. He
made too much shindy, and when he
ought to have been biding he wns talking about liens, and, besides, Potter was
a bit down on him. One fell to n quiet
little otlicer chap, another to the little
Jew, and the third was syndicated hy
the engineers. And then Potter seemed
suddenly sorry for having sold them,
and said he'd flung away a clear £ 1,000,
und that very likely he'd draw n blank,
and that he always hnd been a fool; but
when 1 went and hud a bit of a talk to
hlm, with the Idea of getting him to
hedge on his lust chance, l found he'd
already sold the bird he'd reserved to
a jiolitieal chap that was on .board—a
chap who'd been studying Indian morals .and social questions in his vacation.
That hist was the £300bird. Well, they
landed three of the blessed creatures
at Br India!—though the old gentleman
said it was n breach of the customs
regulations—and Potter and Padishah
lauded too. The Hindoo seemed half
mud as he saw his blessed diamond going this tvuy antl (hat, so to speak. He
kept on saying he'd get un Injunction
— be luul Injunction on the brain—nnd
giving his name and address to the
■ ■Iiii-HN who'd bought the birds, so that
they'd know where to send the diamond, Noimi t»f t lu'Tii" wanted his
name and address and none of
them would give their own. It
was a fine row, 1 enn tell you—on the
platform'. Thoy all went off by different i ruitn-, I cume on io Southampton,
and there I saw the lust of the birds,
na I ca tne ashore; It was the one the
engineers Imught, and it wus standing
up near the bridge, in a kind of crate,
and looking us leggy utid silly a setting
for a valuable dinmond as ever you saw
-—if it was a setting for a valuable diamond.
"How did it end? Oh! like that.
Well—perhaps. Yes, there's one more
thing Hint may throw light on it. A
week or so after landing I was down
Kegeut street doing a bit of shopping.
und who should I see nrm-in-imn and
having a purple time of lt but Padishah
nnd Potter.   If you come to think of It—
"Yea. I've thought that. Only, you
see, there's no doubt the dhimond was
real. And Padishah wuh nn eminent
Hindoo. I've seen Ids nume In the papers—often, Hut whether the bird
swallowed the diamond certainly Is another matter, as you say."—San Francisco Argonaut,

fould hear u wild voice crying out:—
••If you :■ i iy fm her to prison,

He walked up ono street ami down another, smoking one cigar after another,
until midnight sounded from some (Ub*
taut belfry. Then ho went homo to the
palatini mansion to which ho hoped
some day to bring fair Gertrude ns his
bride. He could not rest after ho had
entered tlio house, so for an hour or so
ho sat by the open window lost In con-
tlii-tlng thoughts.
Ho would certainly bo an equal match
fwr beautiful Gertrude ns far as n money
view of it went. The grand mansion in
which he sut wns his. So were the row
of mansions on both sides of the street
as far as his ryes could reach, also valuable lands along the river front. Every
one knew the story of his life. It had
iit'i.ii a strangely thrilling and romantic
OW. Ho thought of it as the moon be-
CAlbd obscured behind dark, heavy,
threatening clouds, and one by one the
stars died, tho wind rose, rocking tlie
trees, nnd presaging a heavy storm. On
just such a night, years Imfore, nn ocean
steamer was heading toward port. Tlm
one prayer of both captain nnd crew was,
to pass the llght-houso tn safety, thereby
escaped the bidden reefs that lay in the
way. It was long alter midnight when
tho terrible slorm broke at last. The I
hissing of tiie witid roso into a scream, '
the sullen   waters   dashed   the   Steamer
nbout
The reeky clouds seemed to fnll on tho
sea, pouring down a deluge of water. It
had broken in all its fury. The thunder
roared* tho lightning flashed; it was one
of theso terrible storms that carry destruction everywhere. At ilrst It was ;
wonderful, then it became alarming, and
nl Inst frightful.
The old light house that had stood for
a score or more of years—a signal fot the
mariner*—went down In the gale, leaving the great waste of waters to the inky
darkness, save for tbe vivid Hashes of
lightning tbat lighted up the heavens for
a moment with n red glare,  then died
out, leaving the   mighty   waves and tlie
steamer to God's will.
Over tlie wild fury of lhe storm   theme
on shore heard a sound Lhnt tilted their
hearts with terror-the tiring of lhe minute gun, whtah denoted that a ship was
iu distress at sea.
They llStOllod With strained ears. Over
tha wild hlBSlng of (lie storm Ihey Could j

Th0U the steamer struck Ihe rocks and '
there was a mighty crash. The ship was
so near now thai those on the shore, listening wilh strained ears and bated
breath, could hear tlie wild cries aud
prayers »r the drowning, and mi* between ■
llio Hashes ihe high waves tailing dark I
objects about. When the gray dawn '
broke, tbey found a little babe, unclothed
and half ifrowuod, wedged iu between
two broken spare, close by the water's
edge,

All, save the lmU\ had  gone   down iu

Saying tliat tt would be almost a miracle
If iw survived,     ilie story of the dreadful
dtsttster filled all the papers the following
morning, and thousands flocked to tlio
llsheruian's cottage, when tho babe had
boon taken, to view tho little one whom
God had decreed should he saved when
•ill else perished,
It was soou ascertained that tho only
babe among tlie list of passengers was
that of .Mr. James Drtscoll and his young
wife. They had been traveling abroad
during the nasi two years; but when
their little one was u   few   months   old,
the importuning of the grandparents to
bring tbe little ono mer, that llu-y might
behold their wonderful grandson, became
so urgent with every letter, there was
nothing else to do but to gratify their
earnest wishes, nud, full of hope, ihey
embarked on the Ill-fated Bteamer.
Among the flrst to learn the dread
news from tho   ''extras11   was  Honitlo
Van Driscoll, the   grandfather,    lie   had
proceeded with scarcely a dozen lines ere
he turned to his wife wilh   the   bitterest
cry that sho had ever beard fall from bli
lips,
"Marulil!" liu cried, "como here anil
rend Ihls to no-. I am hliimii.il. Great

voice, "It   says   (hat   "i'he   Lufly ISlglu'

Mnrola. 'the Hues swim boforo my eyos.
'I'm- halv Klgln' has gone down wiih
all on board, except a  Utile child.   Tell
llie ll Is not true, or 1 shall go tnait1"
lb- forgot that the  grief  of his wlft
was ns gn-at as his.
Kor an instant ihu darkness uf dentil
swept over her.     II. I' heart   stopped heat
tug, bor senses began lo red; thon,
with ii mighty—uy, a superhuman effort,
she controlled herself and   attempted tt
comfort llllil.
"1 can not say'(iod's will Ito done,'
Macria," hemonind. "Thoroaroso mam
others in tlie world who are tired of life,
aud who are [irayiug for death,that cuulil
better lie spared, If I had beeu taken li:
his place it would not havu been so pitiful. When the old die it Is just, It tl
when the young die that we cry out tint'
heaven is not merciful.''
When they had controlled themselves
sufficiently to read all tlio long colonics
through, they learned of the little child,
.lames Van Driscoll's babe, which tht
waves bad cast up without taking from
It its feeble, fluttering life.
They lost no time In going to Iho fisherman's cottage for the little one, their
tears falling like rain when they saw it
sleeping so contentedly on tho breast ot
the woman who was nursing it,
They lavished a world of love on thb
bright little fellow who grew up in thelt
home, becoming tlio sunshine of thelt
lives, tho delight of their old age, He
received as flue an education ns wealth
could provide and a quick, brilliant mind
retain. There wns but ono drawback tn
thc old folks' complete peace of mind.
They desired the young man to study foi
tho ministry—to see him a Methodist
minister was the one ambition of tbeli
lives. But, for the iimt time, he rebelled
gently but firmly.
'My heart goes out to the law," he
said. "I can not Ih1 a minister, for my
soul would net be ln my work. 1 feel
that 1 could, In time, l>ccnmo a lawyer
whom my fellow-men would look upon
with honor. I believe that I could some
day do great service to tho community In
making laws that would go a great way
in bunting dowu criminals and stamping
out crime. An Inward monitor tells me
that is my mission in life,"
"Mnrola, it is best to let the boy take
his own bead," said tbe old gentleman.
"If be insists on studying law, we shall
have to let it go at that."
"He seems io have such a mania for
hunting down criminals that it seems to
me he should have studied to be a detective instead of a lawyer," declared bis
wife, looking nt James over the r'uns of
her gold glasses. And she went on, slowly: "Like yourself, the dream of my lifo
was to see him a Methodist minister; but
old people, like yon nnd me, live to learn
that it is never wise to build up hopes on
0'ir children, for wo seldom realize them,
They nr,- like the down of the thistle Hying (iff here and there where fancy Willi,
Let .lames follow his own bent; it Is uso*
less to choose a vocation for him that he
does not fancy.'1
So .lames Van Driscoll studio.I law,
and was admitted to the onr. lhinie Fortune bestowed her gifts upon him with n
lavish baud. His very tlrst case turned
out to be a celebrated one. His keen wit,
subtle satire, mid brilliant rhetoric startled tlie people, ami he made his way rapidly toward the front of bis profession.

York, drifting   to   other   places,   rathe.

Old .Mr. Van Driscoll and bis wife
lived to see the lad Iii whom they had
such great pride become famous. Then
tbey died, leaving hlm all their vast
wealth, aggregating to something like
two millions ol money.     In ihe will  he
made thi-' proviso: If his grandson .lames

He had no eyes for .tnything but law
books, until ono day, (jiiitu by accident,
he met Gertrude Hamilton,
It had happened in   thla way.    Some
mouths before, just as he was about li
step upon an np-tuwn car, a young man,
rather tlie worse for wine was attempting to cross to the opposite pavement. He
missed his footing In a trice he would
have been lying ground to atoms beneath
the swiftly revolving wheels had not a

ami, with the power of SniUMiii, Hung

was nut lute whleh prompted hlm to take
tbe dosed yonng man's  arm  and  lead
hlm home, when he discovered it was
but a few blocks awavV
Tbu following day Mr. Hamilton, accompanied   by   ids  daughter,   came to
thank him fur the great service he had
rendered them. After Van iJrlscoll's

It has always been said, "the right

'Ibis case proved no exception, He
accepted their Invltatlou with an eagerness that would have maided them imd
they known him Well. Ami in the
months that followed he lost no oppor
tunlty of visiting -Mr. Hamilton's homu
whenever an  occasion   presented  Itself,
and if he caught hut a glimpse of (.ier-
trnde he was content.     Ho even endured
the presence of Mellaril, the scapegrace
brother, for liis sister's sake. Dick saw
at onco how affairs were drifting. Van
Urlscoll was getting more deeply lu lovo
with bis sister Ueitrudo day by day, aud
proceeded to muke capital out of bis
knowledge by calling upon bim now and
then for little loans of money, the demands growing more frci-ucnt and the
sums larger from time to time. Van
Urlscoll, usuairy so stern ami inflexible,
could not say "no" to thc brother of the
woman he loved.
As Van Urlscoll sat by the window

Alexander MeKenzie is oue of the
, well known resideuts of Brookholm, |
Ont., where he lias lived tor many'
years. A few years ago it was thought
that nu early grave would be his; ou
the contrary, however, he is nnw stout
and strung, uml the story nf bis re
covery i.s uii tbe lips of almost all the
citizens of that burgh. The writer, ,
while visiting in the village, could not;
fail io hear of his recover)*, and with
the reporter's proverbial uose for news:
decided to put to the proof the gossip
of the village. Tbe reporter visited;
Mr. MeKeuzie's home aud wns Introduced to Mrs, MoKeuzie. Enquiry j
elicited Ihe information that .Mr. MeKeuzie was noi at home, but wheu in-'
formed as to bis mission tin- lady freely
eoiisctiiMi to tell tin' reporter of hi r
husband's case. Her story runs like
Ibis: "Mr, MeKeuzie is 40 years of
ego, an engineer by profession^ ud is I
now uii a boat uu tlle bikes. About
live years ago be begun to feel twinges I
nl rheumatism iu different parts ut' Ins -.
I body nml limbs, Por a time he did |
! not think much of it. but it graudally i
! gut worse ..mil tin- pain was moh Unit I
j he was unable in work, ami 1'iiuhl not ■
j get rest at nights, f would have tu get
up two or three times of a night." said
Mrs. MoKeuzio to try and relieve this
intense suffering. Of course lie consulted n physician who prououueod his
trouble sciatic rheumatism. Thedoctor
did w)iut lie could for him, but without giving any permanent relief. This
went on for seevral years sometimes lie
would be .some bettor and try to work,
then the trouble would come on again
aud be as bad as ever.
He was pulled down from beiug a
stout man of 180 pounds to about IHO,
aud was so thin and miserable that all
who knew him thought it would be
ouly a matter ul' a short time until he
would bo in his grave. For tour years
did lm thus drag along a miserable existence, until in the beginning uf ISilT
some out- recommended Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Tired uf medioiue, with
some reluctance ho procured a box and
gave thom a trial. Almost at unco a
chuuge was perceptible aud us he kept
on taking them, the improvement cuu-
tinned, aud ho was soon able to be
about. My the tiuie he bad taken
about a dozen boxes he was free from
(he slightest twinge of rheumatism,
aud as stout ami strong as he had been
before his alHictiou. Ho great is his
faith in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that
when he left home recently to go up the
lake for the summer, lie took three
boxes with him as a preventative
agai.MSt a itossiblo recurrence of Ihe
trouble. Mrs. MeKenzie was (juite
willing that this story should be made
public, and believes that she owes her
husband's life to Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Palo People.

use of Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills:
" I took Milburn's Heart and Nerve

this valuable medicine, and it proved the
right remedy for mv weak and shattered
nervous system. Milburn's Heart a-d
Nerve Pills restored my nerves to a
strong and healthy condition, gave regular and normal action of the heart.

every way, and 1 recommend them
heartily to all who suffer as I did."
