The Coal and Soke.
Small Shipment* te  Smelter*.    B*>
ealltnt Morrissey Coal.
The coke industry at all three camps,
Michel, Coal Creek and Morrissey, is at
present handicapped by the lack of sufficient Market for the product, and, as
the slack at the first two ' mentioned
camps cannot be used, the mines there
are not Riving steady employment to the
men. The Morrissey coal, however, fs
in good demand for steaming purposes,
and has a ready market.
This week we learn that No. 3 is all
and more thea has been claimed tor it
It is a " dandy," to^wse the Very words
of our informant, and is turning out the
best coal of the district. Tho other
mines here are producing well, and on
the whole this is the'best coal camp of
the three, it being expected this summer
that over twice as many men will be employed here as are at present    . ,,
The temporary closing down'of some
B.C. smelters, lack of cars, and blocked
railways from slides, account for the
company's small coke shipments, together with the fact that Pennsylvania
has been supplying the Butte smelters
with coke at a very low figure, which
met the price of shipments from the
Crow's Nest. The home market getting
better, the Pennsylvania manufacturers
will not sacrifice their coke to the west
at such figures, and Butte will be
a market for Crow's Nest coke in a few
weeks, we understand.
EiiiiSy Service O'.a-oc.tlr-cid.
The Great Northern has been running
a daily train serv.- ��������� between Jennings
and Swinton for some months, but on
Monday last there was a return to the
tri-week'ly run. A train will arrive at
Swinton every Monday, Wednesday r.nd
Friday, leaving for the soufa at 6 a.m.
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The
recent decrease in the traffic from the.
Junction down due to the small shipments of coke to southern smelters is
responsible for the change, which is understood to bo only for a short time.
Another Fatality at Michel.
An accident on the tipple at Michel
resulted in the sudden death of George
Blake last Saturday, says the Fernie
Free Press. Blake was employed as
engineer to run the tipple engine, and
idly allowing his hand to rub against a
large pulley-wheel, the belting caught,
his arm and carried him swiftly around
the largo wheel, landing him with great
force against the pit below. He was
terribly bruised and his legs and hips
were fractured in soveral places. Two
hours later ho died, not having re
gained consciousness.
ft Progressive Pedestrian.
A certain Fornieite was down in our>
city hist week. He is a protty good
head too, but ho had an idea be could
walk. It is probable that he could too,*
which does not detract from the compliment to the pedestrian here. The
Fornieite was coming down the track
from the upper town, when, so he says,
he turning saw a man some distance behind striding along apparently with
leisure. The one in advance found, on
a second glace, that the other was gaining on him and without much effort,
so, to show that he could walk, the man'
ahead strode out at his best lick. The.
other, seeing tho leader was game, put
his hands in his coat pockets and went
into the fun, in a few minutes overtaking the panting Fernieite who is still
wondering how he did it. This Morrissey Mines walker has been getting up
his rep. elsewhere also, and if there are
any men in the district who wonld like
to distinguish themselves that way we
might arrange a contest.

Postal Notes Good in the Stales.
The post-office inspector informed the
postmaster hero on Tuesday that Canadian postal notes were now good in any
part of the United States as in Canada.
Formerly to send money to the other
side the postal note's could not be used,
but post-office'' money orders were required.

A meeting of those interested in the
forming of a baseball club or the playing of any'other athletic game hero will
be hrdd in tho Alexandra hotel tonight
(Friday) at 8 o'clock. It is hoped that
there will be a good turnout that arrangements, niay���be made at once for
playing of some game early this season.
The Poplar Strike a Good One.
This camp apparently has many surprises in store fur the experienced prospector and miner. Wiien the rich
strike was made a couple of weeks ago
on the surface of the Lucky Jack, it
was thought to ho a small pocket, but
development since then has proved the
high grade body of ore to be of much
greater extent than at first believed.
About 75 feet of the ledge has boon
stripped and throughout tho entire
length tho ore appears to bo uniform in
value, and running thousands of dollars
to tho ton. The Nugget has refrained
from saying much about the very rich
ore that has been taken out of the Poplar creek claims, because to many on the
outside such statements would look like
a desire to boom the camp. However,
ore is being taken out of the Lucky Jack
nt the present time running from one-
fourth to one-half gold, and not in small
quantities either. How far this rich ore
continues below the surface it is impossible to say, and on this point only a
very young expert would venture an
opinion.- Poplar Nugget,

Drunken Italian Cut In Two by C.P.R,
Prclaht.   ft Sunday Beer Resort.
A young Italian employed in the
mines at Michel was instantly killed on
Sunday evening last by being run over
by a freight train near the Loop while
he lay intoxicated across the track.
Especially on the Sunday following
pay day there is a great demand for
boose by the miners, and the foreigners,
having failed to trot home sufficient
kegs on Saturday night to supply them
over Sunday, were thirsting for more
beer. It is well known that the Michel
hotel very strictly observes the law in
regard to Sunday Closing, and from 12
o'clock Saturday night to Monday morn
ing liquor is not procurable, so the foreigners, about two hundred in number.
the majority Italians! went up to the
Loop hotel, a .couple of miles from
Michel, Sunday afternoon, and therr
had a grandly hilarious and noisy time.
Just what reason there Is for a hotel at
that point, other than to serve as a Sun
day resort and liquor dispensary for
the scum of Michel miners, wa do nut
know. It is there, however, and, of
course, is not bothered by law officers or
license inspectors.
Sunday evening unsteady grotlps of
the Loop visitors could be seen return
ing on the C. P. R. track. Some of the
men made slower progress than others,
owing to varied degrees of ability in
navigating the ties. One of them, a
young Italian, sleepily allowed himself
to fall across one of the rails on the
treck, and there he lay innocent of all
danger, possibly dreaming of his homo
la Efuocy Itnij, till a west-bound freight
about 8:30 p.m. came along and put him
to a deor.ar sleep.  . .
The engineer, when too late, obsnrved
the form of tho man on the rail- ahead,
so the train was stopped, and going hack
they found that tho body was'out it tw<,
the head and chest on one side of the
rail and the lower half on the other.
The conductor laid the body to one
side, went on to Michel with his train,
and there informed J. P. Swain, .who
went up on a handcar-and brought tho
remains to Michel that night.
Tho dead man was a member of sc.u.e
Italian order, the brethren turning' oiit
ih a body for the funeral on Tuesday.
SKseessriu SapkW social.
The Basket Social given under1 -th'o
auspices of the church of EngmnA In
the Gourlay House Tuesday, evening
was a gratifying success. It was a very
disagreeable evening, with almost continued drizzly rainfall, nevertheless n
largo number of Tonkin people, arid so'
oral from down town, turned, out, w>
that there was a crowded house. Then'
were songs, recitations, games and some
dancing, but the main fun of the evening was tho auction of tho basket*.
Competition in some instances wti's
very keen, and much excitement nnd
merriment prevailed. No basket was
sold at less than fifty cents, and one ran
up till tho hammer fell at $4.50, the utie
who purchased the latter perhaps con
sidering that ho got good value in the
fun he had and afforded others besides
the possession of a worthy basket with
its accompanying privilege. Or has he
since considered part of the amount as
a donation to the church ? At any rate
he got value, if part of the amount has
to bo credited to experience, and the
church got the money. $50 in all was
realized from the evening's nv,using entertainment, which was brought to a
close by a series of lantern views illus
trnting a shipwreck.
Blockades on the Great Northern ard
delaying mails and hindering Uulfi* WHEN DAVID
CoiivrlBbt,  1003. by T.  C.  McClnr*
Kim Dale ���was the scene of Joyful
preparation, for Mr. nnd Mrs. Ezra
. Hammond were soon to celebrate their
golden wedding. From fur nnd near
��� their children nnd grandchildren were
coming to the old country home under
the great elms.
All of the neighbors Were Interested
in the coming event, and n number of
them were pledged "to help out on
chairs and china." Patience Saybin,
familiarly known ns "Patty," and her
brother lived only a mile from Elm
Dale, but they hud not been asked to
contribute, and Patty felt slighted. .1
"I've offered to lend them everything on the place, even you, John,"
she said to her brother,. "but Mrs.
Hammond says they.have all the arrangements made. I did want a finger
in the pie." '   '.
John laughed. . "Never mind,, little
pirl," he ^aid consolingly. "Mr; .Hammond says '{Bey may ask us to |sleep'
one or two if the old house won't hold
them all."- ,
The day before the.celebration,,Mrs.
Hammond drove Over in the mornihg
to seo Patty: "I thought we'co.Uld
stow 'em all away," she "said, with .a,
smile, "but J was thinking Mary.bad
four children "stead of five. I don't
sec how I came to forget little David'
when I counted noses. I've-been, wondering, dear, if you'd let him sleep
' here���cither him or one of the others?"
"Oh, yes!"   Patty cried  delightedly.
"I should love to, Mrs. Hammond."
..    The old lady smiled.   "I brought his
picture along," she said, "so J-oii could
see what a dear little fellow he was."
Patty bent eagerly,over the photograph. A pleasant little face smiled at
her from the cardboard���the round,
dimpled face of n five-year-old. "He's
a perfect cherub!" she cried.  ���
"I'm expecting most of my children
this evening, and if his folks come I'll
send him over before bedtime."
The denr old lady forgot to tell Patty
that the picture of David whs taken
twenty-three years before.
All that day Patty was very busy
preparing "little David's room." An
old high chair nnd trundle bed were
Brought down from tho attic aud dusted. Lizzie, the good nutured girl in
the kitchen, made some little round
cakes, and Patty frosted them und put
a pink "D" on the top of two or three.
When evening came everything was
In readiness for the expected guest.
The tin waiter and tiny knife, fork
and plate were on the dining room
table, and the little rocker held out Us
welcoming arms in the sitting room.
An old rocking horse that had been
John's long ago waited patiently for
Its gallant rider, and a little woolly
dog stood on three legs with an air of
The day had been a long one to Patty. At 7 o'clock she was rearranging
the furniture in little David's room
when the doorbell rang. She went to
the head of the stairs and called tc
"Hurry, Lizzie!" she cried. "They've
brought little David over. Take him
Into the sitting room and amuse him.
I'll be down iu a 'few uiiuutSs." She
flitted back to her work nnd did not
iear Lizzie's exclamation of astonishment when she opened the door and
saw a big, broad shouldered man
standing there. Probably he had overheard Patty's Instructions to the girl,
for his eyes were full of laughter,
though he said soberly enough: "Good
evening. I 11m David Terrell. Miss
Saybin was expecting me, I believe?"
"Y-y-yes, sir," Lizzie stammered,
"but she wasn't expectiu' quite"- She
paused In embarrassment
"Quite as much of me?" he asked
Lizzie giggled and led the way to
the sitting room. The little chair held
out Its welcoming arms in vain to this
guest. David Terrell's eyes rested at
once upon the rocking horse and wool
)y dog, and his expression momentarily grew more cheerful.
"Were these���ahem���these preparations made in my honor?" he nsked
Lizzie. But before the girl could answer n sweet voice came fi'om the
upper landing, "Are you amusing him,
Lizzie?"    Lizzie giggled hysterically.
"Tell her you are," the young msn
"Ycs'm," she called In muffled tones
from behind her apron.
"Show him the picture books," the
voice went on, "and if the little fellow
is tired take him up in your lap."
Lizzie stepped Into the lower hall
and turned her laughing face up to her
mistress. "Please, ma'am, I can't,"
she said.   "I'd hate to try."
"I'm ashamed of you!" the Indignant
reply came. "I'll come right down and
take him myself."
Lizzie fled to the kitchen, and there
was the quick click of heels on the
stairs. Then David Terrell saw a pretty picture framed in the wide doorway.
Miss Patty Etood there, with surprise
and disappointment plainly written on
%er expressive face.
"Where���where is"��� she began in a
bewildered way.
David came forward. "I don't know
where he is," be said. "If I did I'd get
him for you, Miss Saybin."
"You?" she asked.
"Yes. I'm little David's supcessor:
Will you forgive me for growing older
and larger, Miss Saybin?"
For a moment the sensitive mouth
quivered. She had anticipated so much.
Then she held out her hand nnd said,
with a tmile. "I suppose you can't belp
.t, but you don't look much like your
"Oh, that's it! Grandmother showed
you that small boy photo, did she?"
Tatty nctided nnu smiled again. After
all, this David had pleqsant eyes, quite
like the little fellow's. "I nm glad that
you cntiie," si j said hospitably. "My
brother and I are often lonely, nnd
John will be delighted to entertain
some one of his own age. I hear him
coming now/' And she rose and went
to the door to meet him. "John," David
heard her say, "Mr. Terrell Is here."
"Mr. Terrell?", the answer cam*.
"And who is he, Patty?"
. .."Hush! He'll hear us. It is little David. Don^t laugh so loud, John!" She
slapped her hand into his nnd led him
to the sitting room, and in a few minutes the three young people were on
the short road to friendship.
Late in the evening they adjourned
to the dining room for a little lunch.
Patty,hod f.orgotfcta the.high chair and
Its Accompaniments, ^tnd it was with a
feeling of dismay, that she saw their
visitor's eyes traveling in that direc-
"Are these thlrigs for my use?" he
asked laughingly.
"What things?" Patty said Innocently.
"This high chnlr, tin tray and so on."
"Oh," Bhe soid, with a guilty glance
at John, "those belong to my brother." .
John stared at her In amazement.
His face grew crimson with suppressed
mirth when Mr. Terrell said, "How old
is your little brother?"
"Twenty-seven," Patty answered demurely, and John exploded with laughter. "No good pretending, Potty," he
cried. "Better show him all of my old
possessions, Including the trundle bed,
but we'll not ask him to occupy it."
The morning of the golden wedding
dawned clear and bright. It was a day
filled with happiness for all who gathered at the old home. At 10 that night
David Terrell gave John and Patty full
account of "the gathering of the clans,"
as he called it. In conclusion he said,
"I shall have to ask you to keep me
another night, but after that there will
be room for me at Elm Dale."
"I thought you said you must go tomorrow," John exclaimed.
"Yes; that's so, but since then"���and
be glanced quickly at Patty���"I've mads
other arrangements. My brother and I
are partners, and Jim is willing that I
should have my summer vacation now."
"Oh," Patty cried, "I'm so glad!
Aren't you, John?"
"Yes," he said heartily, but this sudden change of plans made him suspicious.
David made good use of those four
weeks. His grandmother laughingly
accused him of spending half of his vacation with the Sayblns.
The last day came, and David walked
over for a farewell visit. He found Patty alone on the vine shaded porch.
John was away on business, she explained. "Never mind," David said
cheerfully. "It is you I wish to see."
'Her clear eyes were raised to his inquiringly.
"Will you keep your word," h�� said
gently, "and take me?"
"My word!" she murmured wonder-
"Yes. Before I saw you I heard you
tell Lizzie that you were coming downstairs and you would take me yourself." There was a mischievous light In
his eyes now.
Patty's face flushed. "You know I
didu't mean"��� she began.
He Interrupted her anxiously. "But
you will take me, dear, on trial for the
sake of little David?"
She smiled Into the honest eyes, so
like those of the child In the picture.
"Yes," she said, "for the sake of little
David's successor."
She went cairaiy on with her sewing,
while he fumed and spluttered for a
moment nnd then dropped the subject,
especially the weak, feminine mind
part of it.���Exchange.

Fifteenth'  Centnry  Gun*.
In 1427, when the English iu! Normandy made their last assault oni&Iont
St. Michel tinder Lord Scales, they attacked it with "several powerful engines and certain machines of war."
Says an old writer, "They trained a
battery so furiously against the walls
that they 'made a breach." ' Among
those formidable weapons were two
enormous wrought iron guns, which
they were compelled to leave behind
on being obliged to raise the siege.
They are still on exhibition with some
of their projectMes in a railed Enclosure
just inside the main entrance to the
town. The guhs^ni'e of the kind formerly called "bombards" and are of
different sizes. The larger one has s
enliber of nineteen inches, thirty and a
quarter Inches being'the greatest external diameter nnd twelve feet the
total length, of which about three feet
four Inches belong to the smaller powder chamber In the rear. It weighs
very pearly six tons. The other gun
weighs about a couple of tons less, Is
of fifteen inches caliber und eleven feet
nine inches long. These weapons are
not cast, but "built up" guns, being
formed of longitudinal bars about three
Inches wide, arranged like the staves
of a cask and bound round closely with
wrought iron hoops. . The "Miehelets."
as they are called, are most likely of
Flemish workmanship. Their projectiles are mode of hewn granite, and
those for the larger gun have been estimated to weigh 300 pounds apiece.
The powder chamber is capable of
holding about forty pounds of explosive.

A  Co*tom   That   Ha*   Deen   Followed
by Many  Writer*.
Johnson told Boswell once in the
course of a conversation, in which he
praised the "Anatomy," that 11 man. if
inclined to melancholy, should have u
lamp constantly burning In his bedchamber during the night "and if wake-
fully disturbed take a book und rend
and compose himself to rest." There
con be little doubt that in thus indicating an appropriate course for any
one afflicted with "constitutional niel-
nncholy" ��� his own trouble ���he was
stating his own practice. Many a hook
the wakeful doctor must have turned
over iu the silences of the .night, and
tliis increases the wonder that 11 desire
to read any particular work should
take him out of bed unusually early.
Gray must surely have been a render
In bed. A man who wished to he forever lying on sofas, reading "eternal
new novels of Creblllon and Marl-
vaux," must have been familiar with
the faces of his favorites In the night
hours. Elijah Fenton, a now'forgotten
coadjutor of Tope, was accustomed to
lie abed at his lodgings, we are told,
and be fed with a spoon, but Gray's
love of .case was not of this type. Gray
was n bookman, and most bookmen
probably have Indulged in the habit of
reading in bed. Lamb apostrophized
bis folios as "my midnight darlings,"
but those "huge nrinfvlls." as he calls
them, were not bedside hooks. They
were the companions of the long hours
of candlelight iu the back room of the
quiet little "ganiboglsh colored" house
beside the Chase at Enfield. Wycber-
ley, one of the ^"artificial" dramatists
for whom Lamb wrote a qunint defense, made a habit of reading himself
to sleep. Nightly he shared his pillow
with his favorite authors���Seneca,
Montaigne and Rochefoucauld���aud in
the mornings made a practice of writing on those subjects which had caught
his attention during the previous
night's reading, .with the curious
though not unnatural result, ns Pope
has testified, that his writing was unconsciously n mere echo of his reading.

well as to read In bed for the oil sufficient reoson thot seemly clothes were

"Oh, neither! The herald soys I can

The discovery of the delicious attar

luree centuries ago. The Persian Princess Nour Djihan was strolling through
the splendid galleries of her palace
with her betrothed (the Mongolian
Prince DJihangtiyr) and noticed in the
losewatcr basins about the passages
an ugly, yellowish oil floating on the
surface. Orders were instantly given
to remove the unsightly fluid, when it

Is true that the culture of the suddenly
rich is cruder and narrower than the
culture of those who have had generations of wealth nnd leisure, but culture
is relative. The culture of the most
cultured classes In the old world is the
result of large wealth possessed for
generations. Culture is a matter of
growth, but it uever grows In poverty.
The cheapness of the culture of the
very rich in this country as compared
with that of the aristocracy of old
countries is simply the difference between youth and age, a difference of
experience. There is a comparative
cheapness in the culture, bearing and
manners of the people of the west
as compared Willi those of the east,
and for the same reason. The aristocracy of the south and of New England
have a refinement quite unlike that of
the newly made rich in New York and
Chicago and the west. Tbey have been
longer In the making.
Shavlnv; the  Bridegroom.
The shaving of the bridegroom on his
wedding day is a Bulgarian custom
which, handed down from pre-Christian days, is still observed with due
formality, especially In country districts. While the barber is at his
tusk a dancing crowd of young folks
surrounds him and the bridegroom.
As the latter's hair is cut the snlpplngs
are carefully collected by some of the
girls for preservation in one of the
bride's chests. The barber, wheu his
work Is done, receives a small white
linen cloth as a present and also a
trifling' sum of money from each person
there. Then the bridegroom kisses the
Hands of the girls, washes his face and
dans his wedding dress, which must
first be carefully weighed three times
by one of the boys.

Kxerclae  For Children.
Walking is not an exercise to which
young children take kindly at any
time. It is extremely wearisome to
them. It is the poorest form of exercise they can take, involving the greatest amount of fatigue with the least
amount of active movement. The effort of keeping the spine erect und balancing the body is very fatiguing to
the young, and this may easily he demonstrated by taking a young child for
n long walk and noting bow very
quickly It becomes tired anil begins to
drug Its steps languidly along. The
best form of exercise for children is
one permitting of the greatest amount
of movement and the most exercise for
the least fatigue. (James such ns children love, with hoop or bull, are much
better for them than long, dreary set

without overstraining one particular

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one
way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an In-
llamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when It is entirely closed. Deafness Is
the result, and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to Us normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an Inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for

Tho formution of an ambulance corps

What about that meeting of some of
our business men to ascertain what can
be done about improving the Flathead
trail as soon as the premier announces
the opening of the lands ? We cannot

It Is urgent that something be done
to make the wagon road to the Junction
passable. The draymen state that an,
empty wagon won't be pulled through if
something isn't done at once, and, it nu-

The road commissioner can't act too
quickly since he has that report,

The women have now a grand opportunity for doing temperance work, and
showing the greater utility of the rolling
pin than that of the hatchet. The Toronto Globe of Apr. 13 publishes a cable
despatch as follows : Medical Superintendent Jones of the London County
Asylum told the Society for the Study
of Inebriety that bad cooking, resulting
in tnal-nutrition, is one of the chief
reasons for the drink curse.

The publication In the Fernie Free
Press last week of a communication to
the Fernie Board of Trade from Assistant Land Commissioner Pierce of the
C.P.R. at Calgary that the railway was
desirous of having a wagon road built
into the Flathead coal and oil lands from
either Fprnio or Crow's Nest, has not
caused Morrissey people much loss of
sleep. The Fornie correspondent to the
Daily News of Tuesday has reason to be
curious as to what the C.P.R. mean and
purpose doing by their talk of machinery for transportation.
The Flathead country will be the at-
raction for prospectors and investors in
a very few weeks, in all probability, and
the people- must get in at once. The
trail from Morrissoy is the one that will
be used by understanding locators, so
(he travel must come our way.

The new mail sorvice to begin on the
1st of May will be appreciated by tho
residents of Morrissey Mines and Tonkin. Since this town has had a post-
pflice there has been more or less uncertainty regarding the arrival of tho
giail bags from the Junction during the

pleasure of getting the western mail the
same evening it arrived at the Junction.
Under the new system we will get the
western mail, and have the pleasure of
reading tlie esteemed Daily News the

That Canadian postal notes are redeemable in tho United States is another commendable feature of the Dominion postal system. Until this week
postal notes were only of uso in Canada,
but they are so much more desirable for
sending sniull amounts than money orders that the extension of the sorvice to
the United States has for some time
been desirable. Postal notes are quickly
made out, and there is not the delay as
in procuring money orders. The rate of
commission for many amounts is less
too. For instance, a money order for $12
costs 10c, while a $10 postal note for 5c.
and a $2 one for 2c. answers the purpose
without a lot of writing forms and costs
only 7c. Of course we leave the matter
of saving a cent or two to be considered
by the people of the eastern provinces,
but out here in the west, and especially
in Morrissey Minos, rapid service is the
point, and, when to remit an amount the
notes are found to be in somo cases a
cent or two more costly than an order,
time is the consideration.

A party of Morrissey Mines and Tonkin people, four ladies and three gents,
went down to Elko Sunday afternoon on

falls made it an ideal location for a

they enjoyed themselves. But, coming
back, why do they move so slowly, why
does the special not speed along, how
far have they yet to go, why aren't they
nearing Swinton, or is the tunnel far ?

forming a pretty part of a very boautiful
picture beneath the gorgeously decorated arch where the knot was tied. Mi.-;:;
Mabel Campbell, sister of the bride was
the bridesmaid, while Mr. R. H. Richardson performed the duties of best
man. After the ceremony, which lasted
about three-quarters of an hour, a choice
musical program was rendered, and an
enjoyable time spent, the party breaking
up about midnight and the happy
couple repairing to their residence down
town. The Despatch joins with the
many friends in extending congratulations and wishing the young couple a
very happy and prosperous wedded life.

The text ia John iv, 4, "And ho
must needs go through Samaria."
No man's education is complete
unless lie has traveled. There is a
higher diploma than that of Yale,
Harvard, Princeton, Oxford, Cambridge, Heidelberg or the University
of Paris. Tho rough diamond must
be cut and polished before it can
sparkle and glitter and flash. The
scholar's ragged metal edges should
bo smoothed off by personal contact
with thoso peoples whose histories
ho has been studying as a recluso
and as a delver in musty tomes.
To fully realize this scene iu which
our Lord's interview with tho woman took place one "must needs go
through Samaria." J remember well
that hill once crowned with the
capital of fiamaria at the foot of
which still grow the descendants of
thoso far famed olive groves, and
whoso pathways aro still resonant
with the personal histories of an
Omrl, an Ahab, a Ahaziah, a .Jehu,
a Jehoahaz, a Joash, a Herod Anti-
pas, a Herodias, a John tho Baptist
and the evangelist Philip. I cannot
portray that scene so grand and
majestic in its lonely beauty, but
I woutd have you realize some of
tho circumstances which gave special
significance to that momentous journey of our Lord ami present somo
of tho reasons why "He must needs
go through Samaria."
Ono reason, I think, was that
Jesus wished to reprove racial antipathy. The Samaritan colonists
were interlopers. They were not indigenous to the soil. After tho
Shalmaneserian conquest the Assyrian king carried away ten out of
tho twelve Hebrew tribes into captivity. Then the eastern conqueror,
���having depopulated the best part of
the land "flowing with milk and
honey," ho repeopled it with hia
own followers. In other words, tho
Assyrian king gave to his own followers a right to settle upon and
cultivate and own that land, just
as King James I. gave a charter to
William Penn for the American tract
of land now called Pennsylvania and
Charles I. gave a charter to Lord
Baltimore to take possession of tho
present state of Maryland, to bo
settled by him and his Catholic
friends. After the Jews had returned from tho Babylonish captivity
and had rebuilt the Jerusalem walls
and temple they wanted to drive
out these foreign colonists from tho
garden spot of Palestine. But they
could not. Year after year, decade
after decade and century after century the Samaritans held on lo tho
region lying directly between Judaea
or northern Galilee, and tho Jerusalem capital. There they dwelt,
ready to slay any Jew or collection
of Jews who attempted to molest
them. There they continued to
dwell. Each year the hatred between the two races grew more bitter and mortal.
Though tho Samaritan and tho
Jew for centuries had lived side by
side, yet they hated each other only
as a Carthageniun could hate a
Roman, a Moor could tiato a Casli-
lUn, a Turk could hute an Armen-
iin, a Mexican Aztec could hate a
Spaniard. These two peoples hated
each other unto death. Jet when
Jesus, with the object of selling at
rest the Invidious common.JB of tint
Pharisees on his rivalry of John the
Daptlst, left Judaea for hln home in
Galileo lie decided to [inns through
Samaria. He did so, though lie was
fully awaro of tin. foci that every
man, woman and child iu Samaria
hated the Jew as everj Jew hated
the  Samaritans.
By that journey Jesus said to till
mankind: "The man with the llat-
tened nos" and the thick lip "I Ihe
negro and with the aquiline nose of
the Hebrew anil with the low forehead of the Australian aborigines
and with the calvclcss limb of the
Bengali and with the st uiiled sua-
uro of the Eskimo and with the herculean form of the Saxon and the
gigantic Slav are all brothers. Tlie
Jew hus no right to hale the Samaritan; neither has the Samaritan
a right  to  hute the  Jew."
But through the Samaritan should
love the Jew and the Jew love the
Samaritan, just study how the old
racial prejudices against the Hebrew
race, as a venomous serpent with its
slimy coils, has come wriggling
down through the ages. Why is that
finely dressed and courteous gentleman refused admittance into some of
the lending hotels of Saratoga and
New York? He is a Jew? Why was
Alfred Dreyfus sent to Uevil's Island to be more inhumanly treated
than any Government would allow
any man to treat a dumb brute?   He
was a .ie-.''1 Why the donnishness of
the ghetto? L'ecauhe tho gentile by
sneers find, scolls refuses to associate
with the Jew. therefore the Jew
finds most of his tissoci.ttions with
the Jew. Why tl'.i' public ridicule
against a (lass of men who are the
greutesl financier's and masters of
barter ami gain of the world? Because for centuries the Jew had in;
way of making ti living except
through barter anil gain ami as a
inoncy lender. He could not hold
land, for t'ie princes tint! the people
would rob him of his land. He
��� '-i not cro into sta i ecrtift or inlo
the army, because there he was not
allowed 'o go. Though socio! recognition i.i certain regions is now
accorded to the Hebrew race, as
the British House of Lord's has been
opened to them, yet oven to-day a
strong harrier to social preferment
is the fact of a man belonging to
that race, a representative of which
Shakespeare immortalized in Shy-
lock, the cruel and remorseless creditor.
1 contend that racial prejudice is
opposed to the spirit of Christ and
Christianity, and 1 base my 'belief,
first, on this journey that our Lord
took through Samaria; secondly, on
account of tlie lesson which Christ
taught in the parable of the "good
Samaritan," which he spake unto
the shrewd lawyer who was trying
to entrap him by a series of catch
questions. Thirdly, 1 plead for this
obliteration of social prejudice because the Jew is not only as honest
as the gentile, but mentally, morally and physically is in every way his
equal, if not his superior.
Equul is the Jew to tile gentile in
the sweetness and purity of his domestic life. No; only urn they faithful as a race as husbands and wives,
but they are also irreproachable in
their relations as parents anil children. You never hear a Hebrew girl
insulting her mother. You never see
a Hebrew son sitting in tlie presence
of an old father when that father
has to stand. Filial duty is always
practiced in the Hebrew hemie. Tin..
Hebrew fireside is as pure and noble
as any gentile fireside.
A second reason, I think, why
Christ must needs go through Samaria was that he wished to reprove
a social prejudice, lie held converse
on that journey with a notorious
female outcast. She was not a ���respectable" sinner. By that I. mean
she was not one of those able to
travel 'forbidden paths and yet cover
up her sinful tracks so that Hie
world's prying eyes did not see
them. She wa�� not a hypocrite, living two separate lives���one life
which made her outward reputation
good and another life which showed
her inner character to be bad. She
did not sin in secret. She sinned
openly. She was one who not only
openly sinned, but boastfully and
.defiantly seemn.l to glory in her sin.
'To show her that he knew how
stained Was her life Christ said unto
her: "Thou hast well said. I have
no husband. For thou hast had live.
husbands, and ho whom thou now
hast is not thy husband." Shu was
a woman at that time living in open
adultery. Yet it was lo such a social outcast as this that Christ offered the "water of life." It was to
such a human being as this that
Jesus revealed himself and permitted
her to become a gospel messenger to
summon her people to hear his discourse.
O ye evangelists and gospel
preachers, why do we spend most of
our time trying to oiler the "bread
of life" only to the "respectable"
sinners of society, who will not receive it? Why do we not do as
Christ did���go Into the enemy's
country und talk with the outcasts
by the Samaritan well, who are
willing���oh, so willing, to receive the
gospel if we only go to them in
Christ's name? Like the Samaritan
woman, have not the greatest sinners believed in Christ and sum -
limes become the greatest of his disciples and martyrs? Have not the
Peters who denied him thrice,and the
Cauls who were once the greatest
persecutors of his followers been
willing to .teal their testimony for
Chi'i.'lt with their lil'ebloud? Who Was
Illchard Better, who wrote "SainCs
I {est?" Once a notorious sinner. Who
was John Bunyan, the dreamer of
immortal dreams? Onoo u notorious
sinner, Who was Father Taylor, Ihe
great sailor preacher of Boston?
i'nee a notorious sinner. Who were
Harry Monroe and Jerry M'Aulev
and Peter Cai'twriglll and Join Soiii-
nville anil John 11. OouglV? All once
notorious sinners. Ah. il is worth
while (or us io toko a long journey
u' we can only send lor: li a "woman
of Samaria'' as a messenger of Jesus Christ, li is worth while to go
long distances���aye, a very long distance���if. like ihe jrood Ananias, we
can only say to the, chief of sinners,
'Brother Saul, tin; Lord, even Jesus
thai appeared unto ihee in the way
as thou earnest, bath sent me that
I bou mlghtest receive thy sight and
I-,.' ruled with tho Holy ahosl." It is
fur easier for Jesus Christ to save
a seventy deviled sinner who knows
that he is all wrong than to save a
so-called "respectable" sinner who
thinks that  he is all right.
Christ was the Saviour of the social outcast at the Samaritan well.
.Yet the strange fact remains that
most Christian evangelists seem to
act upon the supposition that it is
easier to save the so-called "little"
sinner than the big. We seem to bo
nnwilling to reach out alter the outcasts.
Another reason why Christ "must
needs go through Samaria" was that
ll'i wanted to reprove ecclesiastical and religious prejudice.   The dis
ciples of John the Baptist and of
Jesus were antagonistic and jealous
of each other, just ns the Episcopalians and the Puritans were bitter
during the third year of the l'l.v-
���moiith settlement. The disciples of
John the Baptist angrily declared
thai John had baptized more followers than Jesus Christ, while ihe followers of Jesus angrily i:-;i\'<i- I thnl
Christ had baptized more difclnl s
than John, li whs in order to stop
this bitterness i Iml Jesus left .Judaea nnd startoU north toward Lake
Galileo anil Weill by the way o'' Samaria. Christ was ready lo do almost anything to slop the internal
dissensions among thus., v. ho would
ultimately tier..pi him ns their Saviour and their Christ. Cannot weal]
realize Unit no church can rightly
accomplish a sanctified glorious
work for the Muster unless that
church has complete gospel harmony
within  ils own ranks?
Absolutely necessary is it for
Christian people to love one another
before they can as a church welcome
the man of the world into their
midst with the "everlasting peace of
the gospel." And yet, my brother,
there are scores and hundreds of
churches in this land which are prac
tically a source of dissension to the
world instead of a Christian harmony. They are rent and torn into
factions by internal strife. The
Young People's Society, is pulling
against the session; the session is
/Hiding fault will! the board of trustees; the Ladies' Aid Society is
sulking because its members do not
like the minister's wife. Instead of
the Christian people of the church
getting together and praying for
each other and trying to help each
other for the good of the church they
arc now magnifying each other's
faults und minifying each other's virtues.
Want of gospel harmony in a
church, although it be composed of
only a long series of little frictions
and disturbances will after awhile
suck out the life's blood and kill the
usefulness of a church. Indeed, the
little church disturbances, like the
little sins of life, are more to be
dreaded than the great church tornadoes, which may arise and subside in a day. In church work, the
liille frictions, the little bitternesses, the little "fault findings," like
the fatal leeches of the Teester Valley, can destroy the spiritual life of
any church. Christian friends, us
with Christ when he took his Samaritan journey, pray hard, sacrifice, plead, apologize, overlook fancied insult, do anything and everything in your church family that is
honorable rather than have one'pew
tmChristianly find fault with another pew. A forgiving layman bowing
nt tho mercy seat is just an essential for church harmony as a forgiving minister breaking the bread and
[louring out the .wine at the table of
the  holy   eouuminion.
Lastly I think Christ took this
Samaritan journey lo prove that the
shortest way in life's work is generally the best way. This is not absolutely an invariable rule, but it
holds good in nearly every case. The
country of Samaria lay directly between Jerusalem and Galilee. Il was
as much between these two regions
ns the Slates of Indiana and Ohio
lie ill the direct line between New
York and Chicago. But because the
Jew hated the Samaritan he would
not go through Ihe Samaritan land.
Therefore he made a hiir detour. In
one sense he made as big a detour
as the traveler corning from New
York to Chicago would make if he
went by the way of Louisville. Ky,,
instead of by the way of Buffalo or
Pittsburg. Christ in journeying to
Galileo simply took the straight
path. He went as a bird would fly
overland. lie went to Galileo
through Samaria.
The straight path is nearly always
the right path. When that young
man conies into your store and asks
for a position, if you have mot any
vacant place for him tell him so. Do
not say to yourself, "Now...! do not.
want to hurt that, young man's feelings, therefore I will tell him to
come back next week or next
month." By such an answer ybti undoing an Injustice to the young man.

The    Western, Assurance Company   is   a   Floiirishing
Financial Concern.
Of the many flourishing financial
concerns which have their headquarters in Toronto, few can point to a
more gratifying record than that disclosed at the annual meeting of th.j
Western Assurance Company, a full
report of which appeared in Ihe columns of the Hail and Empire on Saturday, Feb. 20, The financial statement showed the company to be
steadily forging ahead, an appreciable
advance in business being evident.
The income for the year was J>3>678,-
387.45, and the expenditures were $3,-
372,474.S5, leaving a profit of S.V.i.-
912.60, or upwards of 15 per cent, on
the company's capital stock. There.
was an increase of S131.670.2S in premium earnings and of J10.6S1.71 in interest earnings, while there was a decrease of S3.273.3S in losses incurred.
With assets of 83,546.357.25 and a reserve fund of $ 1,289,850, the company's financial position is as secure
and firmly established as wise and
efficient management can make it.
An interesting portion of President
Geonge A. Cox's address was that in
which he referred to the company's
Interest in the great fire at Baltimore. Having maintained an agency
there for 30 years, it would be unreasonable to hope to escape without
some considerable loss. The company's share of the insurance due iiad
been estimated at $350,000, which was
about equal to the company's income
for ono month. The probable advancement of rates in other cities on
similar properties to those destroyed
will largely offset this loss.���Mail and

Those Mailc of Aluminium Arc Time
nnd  Labor Saver*.
The housekeeper who has replaced
her tin or agate kitchen utensils with
light, shining aluminium may count
herself thrice blessed, for she has provided a lasting joy in her housekeeping. Labor and time saving devices
are the rule nowadays, In tho well appointed kitchen, and aluminium utensils may well be reckoned among these.
They are more easily kept clean, and
the rapidity with which they can be
I heated makes less time required to
| cook anything in them. In the newer
output of aluminium  ware a greater
ia is so great that he has set the
whole Balkan peninsula aflame. He
has something of the fanatic and
something of the desperado about,
him, but withal is one of the most
romantic figures in Europe.
His parents were Bulgarian Christians, and his ancestors, who had
lived in the little Turkish village in
which he was born for more than
200 years, hod always been leaders
in uprisings against the tyranny of
the Turks. While still an infr.lt bo
was taught to hate tho oppressors
of his people, and as a boy he began
to train himself for his self imposed
task of heading a rebellion which in
his youthful enthusiasm he believed
would be the means of overthrowing
Turkish power and of driving the
Turk out of Europe.
He studied at the military academy
���it Sofia and before accepting ti corn- '
mission in the Bulgarian army served
six months in the ranks in order to
become familiar with the life and
duties of a common soldier. He was
on officer for a couple of years and
then threw himself exclusively into
the advancement of the Macedonian
eause. Sarafoff organized the Macedonian league, which has figured so
largely in all the Balkan troubles of
the last few years and which is responsible for the recent outbreak.
This league is a union of many local
committees under the direction of an
executive at Sofia, Bulgaria.
Each district committee has a staff
of voluntary secret, agents, and to
these agents is entrusted the task of
securing the Sinews of war. By various methods the Macedonians, have
secured arms and equipments for a
lorce said to number 15,000 men.
They have collected large stores ot
provisions in the mountains and

But the Macedonians have a terrible foe lo reckon with in Edhem Pasha, commander of the Turkish
troops in the revolting province. Ed-
hem Pasha has an interesting history. He is not only of Greek origin,
but also of Christian parentage,
though now he is an enthusiastic and
'anal lea I Mohammedan and a loyal
subject  of the  Sultan.     The rise    ml
durability has bcea-attained by making
it considerably heavier than that at
first made. A useful device at once
so simple and ingenious, that one immediately falls to marveling that it
was not invented long ago is that of
an aluminium kettle with automatic
hinged cover. The cover is opened und
closed automatically by lowering aud
raising the handle. The steam egg

To dress In harmony with the complexion comes naturally to Some women, by others it has been or can be acquired. A brunette generally looks
well In cream color, for she has reproduced the tinting of her skin In her
dress. Women who have florid complexions look well In various shades of
plum and heliotrope, also In certain
shades of dove gray, for to a trained
eye this color has a tinge of pink
which harmonizes with the flesh of the
face. Blonds look fairer and younger
in dead black, like that of wool goods
or velvets, while brunettes require the
sheen of satin or gloss of silk in order
to wear black to advantage. A woman
who has a neutral tinted complexion,
with eyes of blue gray, Is never more
becomingly dressed than In the blue
shades In which gray Is mixed.

HenuUn of Experiment* Made With lloua
Mi n! and Wood Anhon���A meat   ;-
Sttvlnft in corn.
In experiments conducted by Professor I lent.v as to the advantage of
feeding bone meal and wood ashes to
fattening pigs in combination with
corn meal it was found that the
effect of the bone meal ami wood ashes was to save about 28 per cent, of
Ihe total amount fed to produce 100
pounds of gain live weight. Bone
meal doubled the strength of the
Ihigh bones, while ashes were only
slightly inferior in value in this respect. The results show the great
usefulness of bone meal and ashes,
especially where much corn is fed to
bogs. In these experiments tho pigs
hod been well started in their development when the trial began. They
were divided Into three Jots of two
each. Lot 1 received corn meal with
salt and water; lot 2 received in addition hard wood ashes, while lot U
was fed a spoonful of bone meal at
each feed in place of ashes. In one
of tho trials, which lasted 1 \'2 days,
two pigs consumed 10.8 pounds of
bone meal nnd 7.5 pounds of salt.
and during tho same time two other
pigs consumed thrity-three pomftls
of wood ashes and eight pounds of
salt. The earth in the yard in which
the pigs exercised was covered wilh
boards to prevent the animals rooting in it and eating it. as they would
otherwise have done, especially those
which had nn bone meal or ashes to
resort to, and consequently would
have Impaired the results of this experiment.
When bone meal was fed, 487
pounds of corn produced 100 pounds
of gain; when ashes were given. 491
pounds of corn, were required, while
<V29 pounds had to be fed to obtain
the same gain when neither bone
meal nor ashes were given.

That the greatest treasure of the
household, even when placed upon the
dining table, should pass unremarked
or but casually noticed is certainly
more than an up to date hostess can
suffer with equanimity. To avoid this
introduce the menu card used In England. White or of the most delicate
tinting, these cards are plain except up
In the left hand corner, where Is to be
found a clever representation of a
highly prized possession, such ns the
wonderful Venetian glass centerpiece
of the dining table, the unique specimens of Sevres china, curious and historic silverware or anything else for
which you are envied nnd which figures on your dining table and no other.
Thus do your menu cards become Individual and unique nnd your treasures secure greater notice than If left
to the undirected eyes of the none too
observant guests.
Buttermilk Bread.
The evening before baking buttermilk bread bring to the boiling point
two quarts of buttermilk and pour into
n crock in which n scant teacupful of
sifted flour has been placed. Let stand
till sufficiently cool nnd add half a
cupful of yeast nnd flour to make a
stiff butter; the belter nnd longer the
sponge Is stirred the whiter will be
the bread. In the morning sift the
flour Into the bread pan. pour the
sponge In the center, stir In some of
the flour nnd let stand until after
breakfast. Mix. kneading for about
half nn hour, the longer the better.
When light, mold Into loaves. Ibis time
molding as little ns possible. This
makes four loaves and forty biscuits.
The secret of good bread, so the originator of Ibis recipe snys, is having the
best yeast and not baking too hard.
The  Throat.
Soap has a drying effect on the skin
of the throat and should be applied
not ol'tener than twice a week, unless
exposure to some unusual form of dirt
makes a more frequent scrubbing imperative. Itosewnter, which Is so useful an article to keep on the toilet table, makes n good washing fluid for
Ihe throat with a drop or two of alcohol added to It. Hot water Is best severely let alone In this connection. If
warm wnter Is used, It should be followed by eold water dashed on smartly
to brace muscles and flesh. 4'

There is a Cranbrook girl who is f��
bashful it is said she cannot see a sleeping car without blushing.
It is presumed she would faint at th*
sight of undressed lumber, ��� Movie
She'd surely lock herself in her room
and poll down the shades if she wanted
to change her mind.���Fernie Free Press.
No doubt she is a first cousin to the
Toby creek girl who will not look at a
tree in winter for fear that she will see
a naked limb.���Outcrop, Wilmer.
She must be a twin sister to the
Kootenay girl who will not express an
opinion, fearing that she will unbosom
her mind.���Golden Star.
Surely she is the identical girl who i*
so modest she prefers a barefaced lie to
the naked truth.���Port Steele Prospector.
This Cranbrook girl must have chummed with the Kaslc virgin who refused
to walk through to* woods because the-
limbs were crooked; or the Yrair girl,
who would not retire at night with , a
copy of the Christian Observer lying on
the lioor; or the Rossland girl, whore-
fused to dance with her best fellow
beer.use his breath cr.tue in short pants.
���Nelson Tribune.
It must have been the same C.'ra>n-
brook girl that would not go to Fernin
last July because she had heard of the
excessive heat causing the mountain
sides to be quite bare. This modesty is
not uncommon. Perhaps it was an qhl
schoolmate in a prominent home at Fort
Steele who laid a coverlit over the che.st
in the hall. We could well imagine her
turning the faceof the alarm clock away
as she disrobed, and we are unite- positive she would never attend a town lire
because of the length of hose exposed..
