THE   COMPOSER   OF   "IN   A
PERSIAN GARDEN."
F. "V/  '\,       - .M.__B_B_M��
All lovers ol vocal music, red
especially works for mixed voices,
have for some years been familiar
witb the song cycle entitled "In a
Persian Garden." The composer
of tbis unique masterpiece���which
was inspired and set to the words-
of the "Rnbalyat of Omar Khayyam," is Madame Liz* Le bmann.
An interesting article on the life
and work of tbis charming woman,
who was a famous singer before she
retired from public life in order to
eompose, appears in the June nutu-
h=r ot the New Idea Woman's
Magazine. Tke author who interviewed Madame Lebnpagn ip her
home at Wimbledon, near London,
gives delightful glimpses of the
^tiiet life which the artist lires. here
AT HOME.
Mrs. A. Fisher will be "At
Home" to her friends at Broadview

next, from 2 to 5 p. tn.
At the meeting of tht Westminster Board of Trade, held last week,
 ^^^^^^^ tht  one   in
force, made a  more  equitable  distribution over the entire list.
The new feature was the inter-
j mediate tariff which opens the door
I for better commercial relations with
other countries when they feel inclined to approach Canada on the
subject. The British preference, oi
course, conuneuds itselt to all students ot political econuiony, aud
tends to bind Canad.i aud the
mother laud in closer bonds ol commercial unity and amity.
This bill introduced by Hon. Mr.
Lemietix, Minister ol Labor, is now
I undergoing a very severe test us to
! its efficiency, as it is being  applied
I to tbe situation existing among the
! western   coal   miners.    The    only
! difficulty  experienced so far  arises
| out of the want of knowledge of its
lllf   provisions by lhe operators and an-
* ployees.    However,   as   the situation develops,, and  the presence on
the ground of the Deputy  Minister
of Labor makes matters clear,  the
primary difficulties of the situation
are rapidly disappearing,  and  the
way is opening up for the board of!
conciliation   provided   by   the   act
getting to work and settling all the
disputes   which   gave rise to  the
present strained relations between
employees and employer.
One   remarkable   fact 'has been
obvious   during   the  sessi.-n,  and
tbat is the great  strength  of the
Government,  and   the conspicious
ability  with   which  the  aftairs  of
| the country   hore been managed.
I This is noticeable as to the result of
\ departmental work,and also as to the
j debating strength of the Liberals in
| the House.    It is more remarkable
I when contrasted with the weak and
ineffectual showing of the Opposition.
The strong man in the Opposition
was heretofore supposed to be Mr.
Foster, bnt after being given every
opportunity to int himself right
with the House and the country, he
signally failed to do either. Papers
friendly to him have declared in unmistakable 'anguage th.it his dny is
doue, and as a power in politics his
time bas passed and gone. He is
now openly   regarded   as a deatl

matter to the dredge authorities

nevertheless, the performance was

^^^^^^^^^_^ tor the
good of the cause     	
To one lamilar with the work of
the session, the question arises: Is
there any Opposition? If so,
what are its functions, what
does it accomplish? Upon many
questions it is divided, a very
significant one was the tariff. Some
members wanted ' free agricultural
implements, and the leader of the
Opposition with some ol his followers wanted a duty placed on them.
Throughout the session there has
been no unity,no oneness of thought,
no standing together on policy, it
tke Opposition have any policy.
There is uo discipline, and the
party is divided into factions, and it
has uo objective point to which it
appears to be heading.
endeavor ta get tbe dredge to store
the sand pumped up somewhere
where the Council could get at it
with teams instead of having to
tetch it by scew.
W. H. Ladner thereupon offered
to sell to the Conncil, at the rate of
$250 an acre, that three-cornered
plot ot land situate between Wad-
hams Cannery and Chinatown, with
132 feet of waterlront.
It was decided to acceDt this offer and endeavor to get the dredge
to fill same with silt during dredg
ing operations.
Coun. Gilchrist was granted permission to fill holes on the Eyton
aud Vasey roads.
A tender was received from J. P.
Follis for clearing portion of Cemetery lot at $400. Tender net accepted.
The   Reeve, Finance  Committee!
carcases were sold at 11 yt cents a
1 pound. The ruling price lor pork
was 11 cents per pound, but there
was verv little ou sale. There
seems to be a great scarcity of pork
throughout tbe district A couple
of dozen small scuking pigs werc
sold.
The district hen it running a
pretty good heat judged by the
quantity of eggs that kept psuring
into the markets ou Fridays. The
supply has averaged over 1,000
dozens lor -everal weeks ar.d shows
no signs of diminishing. There
were about 1,200 dozens on sale
yesterday at 30 cents retail and 25
wholesale.
The snpply of butter is gradually
looking up. There was a large
quantity on sale at 35 cents aad
nearly all was sold. A few dealers obtained 40 cents from regular
patrons.

I - ��� ���
How often do we hear it remark-
led, "lis only a cold," and a few-
days later learn that the man is o_
his back with pneumonia. Tbis is
of such common occurrence that a
cold, however slight, should not be
disregarded. Chamberlain's.Cough
Reme'ly counteracts any tendency
of a cold to result in pneumonia,
aud bas gained its great popularity
end extensive sale by its iJium.-t
cures of this most common ailment.
It always cures and is pleasant to

SCIATICA   CURED AFTER   20
YEARS OF TORTURE.
For more than 20 years Mr. J. B.
Massey, of 3322 Clinton St, Minneapolis, Minn., was tortured bv sciatica. Tbe pain and suffering which
he endured during this time-is beyond comprehension. Nothing gave
him any permanent relief until he
used Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
One application of that liniment relieved the pain and marie leep and
rest possible, and less that one
bottle has effected a permanent cure.
If troubled with sciatica or rheumatism why uot try a 2 ycent battle
of Pain Balm and see for yoursel
how quicklv it relieves the pain.

| Go!t] was discovered in California la
ISIS mui iii Colorado iu 1 .5S. The discovery was accidental iu both cases,
and liie f.i.t treated tbe impression
that mines were "lying around loose."
Adventurer* drifted about in hope of
"stumbling upon a mine." Mr. Thayer
tu Ills "Marvels Of tlie New Went"
mentions several Instances of lucUy
"stumbling." Three men while look-
ins for gold in California discovered
the dead body of a man who evidently
hud been prospecting. "I'oor fellow!"
said one of the trio, "iio has passed ia
hia checks." "Let's give him a decent
burial,'' said another. "Some wife or
mother trill bc glad if ever r-iie knows
lt." They began to din a grave. Three
feet below the _ur.aee they discovered
_ign_ of gold. The stranger was burled
lu another place, and where they had
locateo, a grave they opened a gold
mine.
Old Cola* rrom Old Mints.
The "mint house" in Boston existed
about thirty-four years. All Uie coins
issued from It bore the dates 1052 or
1G02. the same dies being used probably throughout the thirty-four years of
coinage, Some coins had been made
in Bermuda for the use of the Virginia
colony ns early ns 11,44. Cupper coins
bearing the figure of an elephant were
struck in England for the Carollnus
nnd Kew England in ll_>4. Coins wero
also struck for Maryland bearing tbe
effigy of Lord Baltimore. A mint was
established In Rupert, Vt., by legislative authority tu 1783, whence copper
cents were Issued, bearing on one i;ide
a plow uud u sun rising from behind
hills and on the oilier a radiated eye
surrounded by thirteen stars.

New York SherlftH.
The reason why the sheriff of New
Vork cannot be elected to two successive terms Is tbis: it Is tbe sheriff's
<Iuty to carry out the process of courts
against official delinquents during trial
and after conviction. Should a sheriff
endeavor forcibly to bold over for a
second time after having lieen defeated
for re-election he would bc the instrument of the court's process ng .lust
himself, a parndoxlcnl position which
the law avoids by making him Ineligible for re-election.
