Q. H. Miner.
The St, Eugene mine, at Moyie, in
Kast Kootenay, which was considered in
London the most successful British
ColumbU property in its operation during lust year, is producing 375 tons ol
»re daily and hns two years' reserve
blocked out, according to James Cronin,
tlu- manHKer and a part owner, wbo is in
tbe city, says the Spokane Spokesman
Ke view. Mr, Cronin Rives an in ten.- sli ng
description of the development aud cou
dition of this splendid producer i
'Mie big vein has been opeued on 16
levels," he said last night. "All of these
levels are opened to the surface and tbe
mine has been a tunnel proposition from
the Hrst. Adits have been run every 100
fL-'H from the top of tbe mountain to tbe
base, and they are from 500 to 1,500 feet
long. Including the shafts aud taises
connecting the levels tbere are over five
mites of workings In tbe mine. The first
five levels are connected by a raise and
the ore Is shipped from the mouth of No.
5 tunnel by an aerail tramway to the
concentrator. A shaft has been sunk
from the mouth of No. 6 level lo the No.
16 level, nnd tbe ore from all these lower
levels goes through this shaft and is
taken on a mule tram a few hundred feet
to the concentrator. A depth of 1,800
has been attained.
The mine employs, about 27$ men.
A large amount of this labor is reqnired
ti actual mining, the daily output averaging 375 tons. This yields too tons of
concentrates, which averages 65 per cent
lead and about 40 ounces silver. The
output for the last eight mouths has
been 16,000 tons, whose gross value
aggregated over $1,000,000 The last
quarterly dividend was (105,000, a pay-1
meat of 3 cents a share.
The concentrated ore is being shipped
to Germany. During the past year it
bas been taken by tbe American Smelting & Refining company, but this company refuses to buy any of the ores in
British Columbia at the old figures,
owing to the high freight rates charged
by the C. P. R. for the distance the ore
is hauled over its road. As there are uo
smelters on the Canadian side capable ol
handling all the lead ores of British
Columbia, It will cause the mine to shut
dowu at tbe eipiration of the present
contract early in February if tbe
American smelters' fight is not settled,'
Tbe Salllvss Will Coitlut te Sblp.
Spokesman Review: Tbe Sullivan
group, in East Kootenay, will not be dependent ou the American Smelting A,
Refining Company for the marketing of I
its ores in 1901, according to a statemen*
made at tbe office of tbe company yesterday. On tbe contrary, a very advant
ageous contract for the entire year's
output has beeu made with the Canadian
Pacific operating tbe Trail smelter, and
shipments from tbe mine to tbe smelter
nre going on at a considerable increased
rate over that of December.
This is good news io Spokane, where
a large amount of the Sullivan stock is
held, as it bas been stated that tbe Sul
li van wonld be in the same unfortunate
position as other Bast Kootenay mines
may be and many of tbe Slocan mines
are under tbe existing tight over freight
rates between the American Smelting &
Refining company and the Canadian
Last month the Sullivan shipped and
bad treated at tbe Trail smelter 133010ns
of ore. Tlie Sullivan has uot stopped
shipping for even a day in this month,
but according to tbe daily reports re-,
ceived at the Spokane office from the I
superintendent of tbe mine, the amount
of ore shipped in January to the Trail
elter and treated for the Sullivan will
exceed that shipped and treated in
The contract with tbe Trail smelter,
existing in tbe year 1900, was substantial}* tbe same as tbe contracts of tbe St.
Nugent and tbe North Star. This contract expired December 31. The company at once took up the matter oil
aking a uew contract for tbe year 1901,
with both the American Smelter combiue
and tbe Trail amellet.
Some days ago Charlea H. Wolf, man*
nger of the Sullivan, accompanied the
manager of the Trail smelter to Montreal
to consult President Sbaugbneasy of tbe
Canadian Pacific on the subject ofa new
contract with the Sullivan. Tbey were
there met hy Senator George Turner, tbe
president of ihe Sullivan Group Miuing
company. Tbe comference, it Is snid,
resulted in a contract lor Ihe year 1901
between the company and tbe Trail!
smelter under which a graduated freight,
ti tul treatment rate, varying according to
tbe quality of tbe ore. Is given, under
which the mine will get on an average
ft 00 per ton more for the ore shipped
tban it did in 1900, Tbe new contract is
stated to be a satisfactory one and it will
be tbe policy of the company to ship as
much ore under it as can be bandied
The matter of the construction of a
spur, from the aiding at Kimberley up to
the mine, was also takeu up at this conference at Montreal. As soon as the
snow is off the ground the company will
begin the construction of either a tram
way from the mine to the siding or this
spur, according to wblcb it will be most
advantageous. Which can be the better
built can not be definitely settled by the
engineers until the snow is off the ground
in tbe spring. It iB believed, however,
tbst a spur from the railroad can be constructed with a small grade and at
reasonable cost,

Cowes, Jan. aa—Queen Victoria is
dead and Edward VII reigns. The
greatest event in the memory of a generation, the most stupendous change in
existing conditions that could possibly
be imagined baa taken pi v. Quietly,
almosl gently, upon the anniversary of
the death of Queen Victoria's father, tbe
duke of Kent, the end of a career never
equaled by any woman tn tbe world's
history, came in a similar room in
The most respected of all women, living or dead, lay iu a great four-posted
bed, a shrunken atom, whose aged face
and figure were a cruel mockery ofa fair
girl, wbo in 1837 began to rule over Kng-
land. Around ber were gathered almost
every decendaot of her line. Well within view of her dying eyes bung a portrait
of the prince consort, lt was be who
designed the room aud every part of the
castle. Iu scarcely audible words tbe
white haired bishop of Winchester
prayed beside her as be had often prayed
with bis sovereign, for be was ber chap
lain at Windsor. With bowed heads,
the imperious ruler of Germany, and the
man wbo is now king of England stood.
The woman who has succeeded tbe little
old queen, tbe princess and those of less
than royal designation listened to the
bishop's ceaseless prayer. Six o'clock
passed and the bishop continued his intercession. Oue of tbe younger children
asked a question in childish treble and
was immedialely silenced, the woman of
tbe royal family sobbed faintly ami the
meu shut-Red uneasily. At at exactly
half past six Sir James Reid held up his
band and the people know that Kngland
had lost her queen.
Tbe bishop pronounced the henedi-
tiou. Tbe Queen passed quietly ami
peacefully away. She suffered no pain.
Those wbo were now mourners went
from the rooms. Tbe whole world was
jarred when tbe announcement came,
but in tbe palace at Osborne everything
pursued the usual course. Down iu
the kitchen tbey were c$qkSng a huge
dinner for an assemblage the like of
which has seldom been kuowu iu Bug
land, and the dinner preparations pro
Seeded just as if nothing bad happened
The body of Queen Victoria is being
embalmed tonight and will probably be
taken to Windsor Saturday. Tbe coffin
arrived last evening from Loudon,
Loudon, January 23—Sbot Ily before
midnight an official announcement was
issued calling parliament to assemble at
4 o'clock this (Wednesday) afternoon to
enable members of the house of lords
and house of commons to take the oath
of allegiance to king Edward VII. The
privy council will meet in London today
and the proclamation of tbe king will
thereafter be read at all places by custom. Tbe king will come to Loudon to
preside over the council.
the consulate would be closed for all but
mosl urgent business.
Contress Adjourn.
Washington. D. C, Jan. 22.-—Resolu
tious of coudoleuce were unanimously
adopted in tbe bouse and senate, and
both bodies then adjourned in respect to
the memory of the Queen. The national
ensign over tbe White home was half-
masted. The first time it has been down
on account of the death of any monarch
The Queen's Funeral.
London. January 22,— There is little
doubt tbat the funeral pf Queen Victoria
will take place at Frogmore, though
nothing in regard to this matter baa yet
been announced. Her majesty was so
closely related to tbe European courts,
big and small, that tbe gathering of
royalties at the obsequies will be unprecedented. The news of tbe Queen's
death reached all the towns of the kingdom a few minutes after it had beeu received by the lord mayor ot London, and
waa quickly spread through tbe country
districts by tbe tolling of bells. Prince
and princess Louise uf Bittenburg arrived
al Osborne just too late to see her majesty alive. Parliament, it is expected,
will meet at Ihree o'clock tomorrow
There is some belief in London tbat the
privy council at which king Edward VII
will take the oath of accession will be
held in London, and that his majesty will
start fur London without delay.
Prince of Wales Affected.
Cowes, Jan. 22 —Tbe prince of Wales
was very much affected wben the doctors
at last informed bim that bis mother
bad breathed her last. Kmperor
William himself, deeply affected, did his
best to administer to the comfort of his
stricken uncle, whose new dignity he
was the first to acknowledge. From all
parts of the world there are slill pouring
in to Cowes messages of condolence.
They come from crowned heads, millionaires, tradesmen aud paupers aud are,
variously addressed to tbe prince -ofI
Wales and to tbe King of England.
Emperor William's arrangemeuts are
settled. His yacht will arrive bere today (Wednesday) but as it is believed he
will uot depart until afler the funeral.
Several other royal personages are likely
lo be preseut at the funeral.
Loudon It Oueisluf.
Loudon, January 23 —From White
■hapel to May fair, streets usually gay with
nightly festivities are dark, desserted
and desolate, and this depression ofthe
public mind is likely lo continue for
many days to come, Everywhere in ve
hides aud on the streets the one topic of
conversation was, what would happen
under the new reign, rather tban tbe life
aud death of Victoria, Much iuterest
was evinced in the way iu which the enormous fort line of the dead Queen would he
distributed, tbe geueral uotiou being tbat
Osborne bouse would go to princess Heat
rice, and that ahe and prince Christian
would come iuto a considerable portion
of Victoria's wealth. Tbe probability
tbat king Edward will take up a practically permanent residence in Buckingham
palace was much canvassed. This is a
question that comes home to Londoners.
Victoria's preference for Balmoral castle
and Osborne house has been a complaint
of long standing in the metropolis aud it
is hoped that the new feign wilt se
change in this respect. The presence of I
thecourt in London would give a brightness and gaiety which have long been
absent. Not until Victoria bas been laid
to rest beside the prince consort at Frog-
more will tbe theatres or music balls open
Moreover business will come to a practi
cal standstill. The music in all the hotel
and public bouses has ceased. Marlboro
house, so long tbe home of the new monarch, Buckingham Palace, where Queen
Victoria made her last stay in London,
and St. James' Palace, the residence of so
many former monarchs, -are tonight all
black and deserted.
The News in Craubrook.
Tbe announcement of the Queen's
death, wblcb was received in Cranbrook
soon after noon on Tuesday, cast a
shadow of gloom over the community,
AU the Sags in the town were placed at
half mast, and emblems of mourning
could be seen everywhere. All business
bouses were closed for tbe day, and a
feel of sadness pervaded the town. Tbe
country's misfortune wai the sole topic
of conversation.
Under orders from Victoria tbe schools
were closed for yesterday and today.

Victoria Ascended tbe Throat In IW7-
Queci's Life Slory.
It wss on May 24, 1819, tbat a girl
child, who waa to rule millions of people
in widely separate portions ofthe habitable globe, was boru in dingy old Kensington palace. She was tbe ouly
daughter of the duke and duchess ol
Kent, granddaughter of George HI.,
then king of Kngland, and neice of ibe
then prince of Wales, afterward King
William III. In due time she was
christened Victoria, and from tbe beginning ber education and training were
of the most careful, for. while it would
bave been a wild fancy indeed tbat
would nave predicted such a career as
ibe wss actually destined lo fill, tbere
being at tbat time several lives between
her and the thione, her father and
mother, her grandmother, tbe dowager
duchess of Coburg, also grandmother of
the Prince Albert wbo wi s to be prince
consort of England's queen, and indeed
George IV of England himself, regarded
ber as likely to be the sovereign of England before bee death. Prince Albert,
wben he courted Victoria years afterward, said to ber that lie bad been told
from childhood that oue day he was to
marry tbe queen of England, and ahe
was to be the queen.
To wise hands was intrusted the care
of the royal Infant. Healthful outdoor
exercise, plain and wholesome food and
ihe utmost regularity and punctuality
were tbe order of the day. The idea
that not only her own time, but that of]
others as well, was valuable was fostered
in Victoria's mind. Tbe greatest care
waa taken to guard against vanity and
love of display or power, and it was uot
until sbe was 12 years of age that she
was Informed of her pcssible future. It
was told of ber by tbe Baroness Lehzeu
tbat on receiving this information, "the
princess, having lifted tbe forefinger of
her baud while she spoke, gave me th
little band, saying: 'I will he good,
understand new why you have Urged me
so much lo learn even Latin. I understand all better now.    I will be good.' "
Her Accession to (be Throne.
Victoria came of age on May 24, 1837,
and on June 30, less than a month later.
sbe was declared queen of England,
William III having just died. It was iu
tbe middle of the night lhat the young
gill was notified that sbe bad become
queen of Great Britain aud sovereign of
an empire so vast tbat on it tbe sun
never sets. The messengers wbo conveyed to her lhe news of her accession to
the throne were tbe archbishop of Canterbury, tbe lord chamberlain and Sir
Henry Halford. Tbey experienced a
good deal of difficulty in obtaining admission, as tbe entire palace at Kensington, whore the young princess resided,
was wrapped in deep slumber. Having
at length made tbeir way to the apartment adjoining ber bedroom, ihey
caused ber to be summoned. A few
seconds latter she appeared, alined in a
loose while dressiug gown and shawl, her
long hair falling over her shoulders and
her bare feet in slippers.
On being informed of her new dignity
she burst into tears, and then, addressing
herself to the archbishop, exclaimed, "1
beg your grace to pray lor me," The
■/hole party, consisting of tbe little
queen, tbe prelate, the lord chainherlaiu,
aud the late king's physician, Sir Henry
ilalford, then knelt, and there, in Ibe
middle of tbe liight, offered up prayer to
heaven thut she might be strengthened
from above aud guided to the blessing of
her people.
That was how Queen Victoria commenced her long and prosperous reign,
and now it may well be said without fear
of contradiction that her prayer offered
up on thc night of ber accession has been
fulfilled and Hint her reign ha- proved a
blessing to her people.
Victoria was from the first Idolized by
tbe English people. Her youth appealed
to their sympathies, aud ber gooil sense
to Iheir respect. Sbe became a sort of
national pet, yet withal sbe was admired
for wisdom her rectitude and her firmness, Greville speaks wilh something
of regret of the last mentioned characteristic, evidently holding that the ordinary impulsiveness and perhaps even the
mistakes of youth would have been more
charming. Tbe glories and splendors
that attended ber coronation—are they
not all set down iu the chronicles of the
day ? The ceremonies occurred on June
28, 1838 Never bad England's metropolis been so crowded, Places along tbe
line of tbe royal procession brought a
high premium. By dark on the preceed*
ing day tbe people began to gather.
At daybreak of the 28th the popular
enthusiasm bad reached a high pitch
The procession outdid anything of the
kind that bad been witnessed in London.
Besides the troops, which were ordered
out in full force, there were twelve royal
carriages, each containing two ladies and
two gentlemen, and each drawn by six
prancing horses. Theu came tbe queen's
state coach, drawn by eight cream
colored horses an attended by a yeoman
at each wheel and a footman at each
door. Tbe coronation itself was held in
the vast building always used for tbe im*
posing ceremonies of English royalty-
Westminster abbey. Victoria's train of1
royal crimson velvet and ermine was
borne by eight young ladies of noble
birth. Cannons boomed, trumpets
sounded, and men and women cheered
outside the building, and from every
part of the sacred edific were heard en
thusiastic cries of ''God save tbequeen!1'
Hats and handkerchiefs were waved aloft,
peers and peeresses put on their coronets, and bishops donned their caps,
the guests iacluded other sovereigns,
and they yielded to no one in the enthusiasm of tbe moment.
Tbe "enthronement" was a singular
portion of the ceremony. The young
sovereign was lifted bodily into the royal
seat, beiug surrounded by archbishops,
bishops and peers. His grace of Canter
bury knelt and did homage for hiuinelf
and other spiritual lords, and all kissed
tne queen's baud. Her uncles, the
Uukts ot Sussex and Cambridge, re
moved their coronets and did bomsg
wilh set and elaborate speech. They
touched tbe crown ii|K)ii her head, kissed
her left cheek and then retired. The
peers also touched be crown, but kissed
her bauds.
A Marrlsie for Love.
Queens enjoy a privilege which is
withheld, save in leap year, irom women
occupying a less august position in tbe
social scale—namelv, tbat of themselves
makiug tbe offer of marriage, instead of
waiting to receive tbe proposal from
their suitors. And it was therefore
Queen Victoria wbo a year afler ber
coronation at Westminster abby. on June
28, 1838, invited her cousin, Prince
Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, to share
hia life with her. lt is only slating tbe
truth to say of this marriage, however
that it was one that bad been agreed
upon for many years, providing Victoria
herself approved of the young man. For
a time she is recotdtd as having been
not well pleased with him. but there is
no doubt that sbe fell In love wilh bim
before the union was proposed hy her,
Tbe nuptials took place 011 the 10th of
February, 1840, at the Chapel Royal, St.
James palace. The wedding breakfast
was giveu at Buckingham palace, and
the honeymoon, which only lasted three
days, wai spent at Windsor caitle.
The marriage proved an exceptionally
happy one. Prince Albert turned out to
be an absolute ideal husband, being a
man of singularly stainless and irreproachable character. Quetn Victoria's
lomestic bliss was absolutely unclouded
as long as ber husband lived, and she
was guilty of uo exaggeration when she
declared that the only sorrow which be
bad caused ber was when be died.
Persistent Uriel.
From tbe time of ber husband's death
the queen was scarcely ever seen in
public until tbe year 1873, when she proceeded in state, together wilh tbe entire
royal family, to St. Paul's cathedral to
join in a national thanksgiving service
for the recovery of tbe Prince of Wales
from tbe dangerous illness which had
brought him so very near death's door
tbe year before. The Queen and tht
Prince of Wales passed from Bucking-
bam palace to St. Paula's along streets
literally alive with people. Foot-waya,
shop windows aud the very roofs were
teeming with shouting, hurrahing and
enthusiastic crowds, and tbe popular display of loyalty waa beyond all description.
In the cathedral tbe prince sat between
his mother and his wife, the vast fane
thronged to the utmost with good subjects af the queen, wbo were aoxlous to
show how entirely they sympathised
with ber joys as well as witb he sorrows.
Queeu Victoria's Jubilee.
On June 20, 1SS7, the Queen once
more made a state progress through her
great capital to attend a special service
at Westminster abby in honor of the
semicentennial anniversary of her accession to tbe throne. Kvery reigning
house in the world sent either members
of their families or great dignitaries tu
represent tbem at ihe ceremony, and
while kings and queens chatted gayly
together in the chancel of the abbey
while awaiting the coming of Queeu
Victoria, her majesty—no longer the
bonny, frenb and healthy cheeked English girl of 1S37, but a venerable looking,
white haired old lady—was driven up
adilly, ber carriage escorted by tbe
in s'. brilliant troop of priuces. archdukes and gratid.lukes that have ever
Wen gathered together for such a purpose.
.Most notable in the procession wai tbe
Queen's favorite son-in-law, the prince
Imperial ot Germany, who a little later
succeeded bis father as Emperor Frederick, and it was observed that wben at
the abby the various princes and prior- *•
esses present came forward to do homage
to tbe Queen as she sat in tbe chancel on
her throne the good old lady embraced
'I'nser FriU" with especial warmth and
affection, as if filled with a presentiment
of bis impending death, which took place
after a reign of only 90 days.
Seven times during ber reign was
Queen Victoria's life attempted, but only
on one occasion, in May, 1850, did her
majesty receive any actual injury, aud
that of a mere transitory character.
Her assailant on that occasion was a dismissed officer of hussars, and he was
seized before he had time to accomplish
more than strike her a sharp blow iu the
face with a stick. The man was sentenced to seven years' transportation.
Tbe first attempt to assassinate ber was
made in June 1840, by a man named
Oxford, wbo fired two pistol shots at her
while sbe was driving op Constitution
Hill with her husband. The would-be
murderer was detained several years in
prison and at last accounts was earning
uii livelihood by bouse painting out io
Victoria bad nine children—Victoria.

Although Victoria's reigu was essentially one of peace, it was in no sense ao
uneventful one. Here is a brief summary of the more important events directly affecting the British government :
1837-S-Rebellion in Canada.
1853-42-Afghan war.
1 Mo—War witb China.
1845—Repeal of tbe corn laws.
1837—Famine in Ireland.
1848—Chartist agitation.   Small
lion in Ireland.
1853-5-Criuiean war.
1857-8-Great Sepoy rebellion.
1H5U—Direct     government    of
i86t—Expedition against Mexico.
I865— Fenian troubles.
1867—Reform bill passed.
1S6H— Expedition to Abyssina.
1871—Disestablishment of the Irish
church,    Alabama claims settled.
1873—Growth of Home Rule league in
1S75—Suei canal purchased by England.
1878—Russia checked in Russo-Turk-
isb war.   Cyprus acquired from Turkey.
1880— Beginning of the Irish agitation
ofthe present.
iSSi-2-Trouble aud fighting in Zulu-
1SS4—New Guineaannexed.
1S87-8-Troubles in Africa,

■iSy4-5-Venezuelso row wilh America.
1900— Peace conference at the Hague.
1900-1-Boerwar and Chinese troubles.
During all these years Victoria's throne
stood firm, thanks probably quite as
much to her own good seme aa to tbe
constitutional form of tbe English government. But during thia -period the
governments ol tbe world underwent
more changes tban perhaps was the case
during the reign of any monarch of the
modern era excepting that of George IH,
who was on England's throne during the
French revolution, and the reign of
Louis XIV a century and a half earlier. CRANBROOK HERALD

Tbe Queen is dead !
Only those wbo bave lived their lives
heneath tbe folds of the Union Jack can
fnly appreciate the sad import of that
announcement. Other sovereigns have
died and olher rulers have been deposed,
but never before has one heen taken
away whu bad such a strong hold on the
affections of her people. Men wbo ar
old today, learned to lisp wiih baby
tongues the name of Queen Victor ii
anil a-i they grew into manhood their
love and reverence for their sovereign
ami Queen became a part of their nnture.
Generations of people in England and
English colonies have known no uther
sovereign, and although lhey knew thai
the Queen was growing old, yet they
failed to realize lhat the end must come,
and, iu consequence, the announcement
of her death was a sudden and sorrowful
The Queen is dead !
What a burden of sorrow that state

thousands who have so proudly acknowledged allegiance to lhat grand, gooil

The advancement made by England during Victoria's reign, the progress of her
people, ibe spread of civilization under
England's flag, is a grand monument to
the memory of her gracious majesty.
The Queen is dead !
And today, in every civilized nation on
the face of lhe globe, writers and speakers are telling of the queenly virtues of
England's dead Queen. Her life presents a beautiful picture of ibe true
woman, the true wife, tbe true mother,
and the true sovereign, and her death is
a loss to every home in the English
realm, and to everytcountry tbat loved
freedom and progress.
The Queen is dead, but ber memory
will be cherished in the hearts of millions. And in this way, will those who
love virtue, goodness and peace, pay a
noble tribute to the memory of a noble

Wherever the English language is
spoken, and for that matter, in many-
countries where it is not, tbe news of
tbe death of our beloved Queen caused
sadness and regret to pervade the very
Not since the death of Prince Albert,
in 1861, has the whole Britisb empire
heen thrown into such a state of mourning. It is beyond dispute tbat Great
Britain has lost lhe greatest ami besl
ruler that a nation ever hnd. Irom the
day the late Queen ascended the throne,
until the day of her death, she held not
only the respect and homage of her subjects, but also, which is of greater consequence, their love. No ruler wns ever
so much beloved, and the reason is not
far to seek. Victoria was a woman first.
and a Queen afterwards. Her whole
life as child, wife and mother, goes to
prove fact. Her long life, nearly eighty-
two years, was oue of human interest
throughout. She had the same joys and
the same sorrows ns nine-tenths of her
subjects, Her happy married life, cut
short by tbe death ofthe Prince Consort, and the subsequent death of her
sons, gave ber ber share of tbe bereavements that come to eitrh of us. Against
these sorrows lhe pleasures ol seeing an
empire such ns now exists, grow and develope under her rule, must to some ex-
tent, at least, mitigated the bitterness of
her grief.
Much could, and no doubt will be,
written of the most eventful and progressive reign England has ever known, but
that must be lefl lo lhe historians. N'o
more can we sing "God Save the Queen"
That anthem, which we have been accustomed to bear from our childhood;
tbat hymn, lhat has been sung under the
aurora within the Arctic circle, under
tbe southern cross, in tbe wilds of Africa,
under the burning skies of India,—sung
as it has been ou many occasions where
brave hearts and true were about lo lay
down their lives willingly aud gladly for
their Queen and country, as did the little band on Mnjuba bill. The world bas
lost many great men and women, bul it
is doubtful if, during tbe Inst two centuries, at least, lhe world has ever losl one
whom it could so badly afford to loose.
If we believe in au hereafter, we must
certainly believe that Victoria bas certainly gone to her well-earned reward
and test. Her name and fame will never
be forgotten, aud to future generations
ale will he, spoken of as "Victoria, the
Good." I

A Severe Case of Chronic Asthma Which Would
Yield to no Other Treatment Cured by Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine.
'I'he ayiiiplDins of uslliniu are keenly distressing mid ure not easily confused with thoso of any other ailment. Tlm victim is suddenly aroused hy un intense iitiguisii in tbu chest,

these paroxysm}*, which may last for
hours, the patient usually falls asleep to arise noxt day weak, languid
and debilitated.
Dr. CIiusu'h treatment for asthma
Consists in tlie combined use of Lwo
of liis remedies, Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine and Dr.
Chuse's Nerve Food. Asthma te a
nervous disease and the attacks are
brought on by some irritation of Hm
nerves along the air pfiS8UgeS- These
nerves are southed and quieted and
Immediate relief afforded to tho patient by tho use of Mr. ('huso's Syrup
of Unseed und Turpentine, in fuel
asthma is frequently thoroughly cured by llie use of this remedy alone,
im Is evidenced by the testimonial
quotid  below.
In most cases, however. It is found
advisable to combine ibe two remedies, Mr. (.'base's Syrup of Linseed
nnd Turpentine and Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. The former ns a local treatment acting directly on tiie bronchial
tubes and air passages, and tbe hitler as a nerve restorative to build
up and strengthen the whole nervous
syslom. It is confidently believed
thero is no treatment extant UiuL is
so perfectly successful in the cure of
asthma as the combined use of these
two great remedies.
