that after May ist the union schedule
of wages will no longer be-maintained.
After that date the men are to be paid

A ratfj granted''.will not be changed
without thirty days' notice. Through*
out. the »'liple„western, division,, many
of the- machinists;'^boiler makers, and
car repairers have received notice of a
reduction\of wages. At'present the
boiler.jinakers get.45^ cents and the
machinists-.45 cents an hour, with the
union's agreement that if a man is not
"paid that amount he is to be discharged.
The C.P. R. claim that in'this way
poor men get as good pay as first class
hien and that is not fair to the good
men or the company. They will therefore pay according to ability with the
above, sums as'"a maximum-, wage and,
40 cen|s an hour for a miiiiinuin. ' At

Medicine Hat, April 20—At the continuation of the trial of the sect known
as the. Dreamers, Jacob Merkel. Jr.,
son of the Dreamer god John Merkel,-
was on trial. , John Lehr stated that
the prisoner had told,, him* that the
same fate would overtake him as happened to'j. W. Martin, J.P., who  was
. supposed to have been drowned, and
whofineda Mrs. Gill $20 for;firing a
gun.,at the witness' children. ChrisUan
Gill had also,threatened to ao away
with him if he got a chance, and threw
a knife at him on one occasion, Merkel
also carried a rifle. Adolph and Michael
Brost gave evidence that they ■■had
heard the <■ prisoner "make the threat
that the witness would die like a beast.
\J. Sclinieder testified :hat he had
been a Dreamer, but withdrew from
the church two years afjo. Their belief
was to destroy the property and lives of
those who did not believe with them
He carried out their dreams as inter-
. preted. ■ ,,   i        ■
The witness knew of a dream the
prisoner had carried out, and as a
result of which he rode oyer to his
brother-in-law's place and shot him.
He was jailed for thirty days and had
to pay a fine of $100. The brother-in-
law was not killed by the shooting.
' Witness knew of Dreamers who- had
burned buildings as _ the result of
dreams. He left the Dreamer-.' church
because he was afraid he would get
into trouble. God Jacob had threatened
him with revenge for", leaving the
church. -. ,,        .
;   Other witnesses gave evidence of a
similar nature. '"   '-
Magistrate Rasmussen, of'202 Marquette St., Montreal, writes; "For
many years 1 was troubled with a serious eruption of the skin. This , was
not, only unsightly, but it was al
times very painful, I first tried various household . remedies, but these
proved altogether useless. 1 .then took
medical advice. Not one, but several
doctors in turn were consulted, but. I
was unable to get any permanent relief. '. Some"time ago 'i noticed a report fiom a justice of the peace (.Magistrate Perry, J. P. forj B.C.) who had
been cured of a chronic skin disease by
Zum-Buliyand ,1 determined to give
this balm a trial. ^ After a thoroughly
fare test 1 can say 1 am delighted with
it. 1 have the best' of reasons for t hese [
conclusions; because while everything
else I tried—salves, embrocations,'
washes,'soaps and doctors',, preparations. Jailed absolutely, to', relieve my
pain and rid me of my trouble, ' three
boxes of Zam-Buk worked a complete
cure." In my opinion this balm should
be more widely known than it is, and
1 hope that my experience will lead
other sufferers who are in despair'to
try this herbal healer, Zam-Buk." ■
For healing eczema, running sores,
pimples, spring eruptions, scalp sores,
cuts, bruises, burns,, boils, eruptions,
itch, chapped* hands, and diseases of
the skin Zam-Buk. is 'without equal.

■Woman's World
Something About the - Foremast
Cleverest Woman of India.
There is.probably.no class of people
In the world so wretched, the victims
of such incredible cruelty, as the famous* child-wives of India. Por centuries superstition, ignorance, child
marriage and perpetual widowhood
have made their lot the most hopeless
possible. They are treated, among
other things, us beiug somehow responsible for the death of their husbands or
of the ones to whom they are betrothed. . The extent of the terrible grip
this superstition still holds iu India
is seen.from the census of 1901, which
reported the number of child widows
under fifteen yenrs of age jas 391,147
and 19,487 of these under Ave years.
, Against this grcnt evil, this awful
custom, that for ages has held, sway

New Way of Shirring.
, Every seamstress knows} bow;; hard
It Is to make sblrrlngs lie smooth und
flat without tuklng time to "scratch"
them Into place. In shirring take up
,on the needle a little more of the
goods ;.than, you leave, between the
stitches, so us to show tbe thread as
little as possible. " Press tbo thumb
against the needle, moving tt with
ouch stitch, and (ill the needle as full
its posslblo before drawing tho thread
through, This gives every stitch the
effect of n small plait, much tho same
us ...machine gathering,. This method
also gives little work In urranglng tho
'gathers. -Willi a little practice the
work will become uiecbanicnl, and you
will be delighted with tbo neatness and

Elsewhere   we publish the. judgment in     the Strachan vs McCut-
cheon.   Everyone  especially .workmen, should read what the learned
judge says about the practice    of
dealing    with  ignorant   and  gul-'
lible  .workmen.    No     one should
"buy a "pig in a poke." Tgo much
■ warning cannot be given- to workmen to look carefully .to their,in-
" vestments.   A vendor may in some'
cases state ,the truth but there are
tmany, who do not hesitate to lie
out and out if by so doing    they
•can   part     men from    their hard
earned     savdngs.     We   would   ba.
sorry .. to    class    all  real    estato
agents as*, untruthful • because we
know  that  many  are^ honest  citizens and reliable men. • To  separate
the chaff from the wheat is    perhaps a. difficult task.   Ti eyery intending" purchaser would, view the
* property first or send eat and get
! valuations t there would' be  fewer
- complaints of being swindled.

Conslder what organized"labor has
done,to improve,the' c^ndUlori'TjlUho
working men. Seventy' tr * eighty
years ago thtt.condition of labprcrB in
tbe factories was far worse than the
condition ot the slaves in the south.
I have lived in the south andTknow
that the material condition of the
slaves was better. In l832-*33, in
many of the mills of this country, the
women and children bad to go to
work at 4.80 o'clock in the morning,
and to continue at work fourteen and
fifteen hoars a day. La bor organ Iza*
tions have done a splendid work, and

aro not contented any more. Their
ambition Is aroused to bo men and
women, and their Bonn; is: "Eight
honra.for work, eight hour* for sleep,.
and'elghihours' to do what wc will,"
I do not say whether in the present
conditions of labor tbe eight-hour day
is always attainable * but all these
things are to be judged by the effect
they have on manhood and wora.ii**

through the newspapers .have served lo
a limited extent' in checkmating the
efforts to unload upon the workinginan
worthless,property.". Nevertheless this
nefarious business Is still being carried
on by some. 1 might specify many
instances where persons have been victimized but many who read this will
have their own experience to prove the
charge I make. . I, have* known,of a
case where the vendor sold outright
certain lots which he did not own. It
is bad enough"to get a'practical!v
valueless lot for one's money, but much
worse to"get nothing at all." There is,
I believe, a .method of employing
"booster*;" that Js.'to say, an* operator
wifihing to catcl{, purchasers gets hold
of two or three supposedly reputable
citizens to "buy!1 lots'and then-the
"booster" goes about telling whnt h
guod bargain he has made. • Tlieie
"booBtefs"(.'paY' nothing whatever for
their lots. They merely allow references
to be.made to them and if asked for an
■opinion urgejih,eTvietani8'atong>*0ie line
of slaughter. - There are many men'
penniless to-day who owe that condition
to the outside real'estate agents. Of,
course the property offered has, so says
the agent, a great value Hnd why need'
u wbrklngmnn be content' with the
bank rate of interest when he can
double \w money in a short time. These
alluring speeches catch.men ns honev
draws tbe fly. Our own good properly
goes a begging, our brokers wlin have
their homes nnd their all here sell coir)*
pnrntlvvly few lots, tho progress of the
city Is stayed beenuno the money is
nbvorbed by outsiders, The situation
is truly appalling, I do not deny that
there . arc, some ^reliable and worthy
outside agents who come here. Tliny
are hampered in their work by the ones
who carry on fleecing operations.    No
man should invest in anything without

"He is not expected to live," my mother informed me, "and you must go'
over and see him as he is liable to die
any moment." "Not expected to live,"
that was the opinion riot only of the
doctor who attended him but of his
'wife and family as well.    Upon visiting

*-■■ i ... i -
to'confirm their, opinion.

\flicted with asthma and bronchitis, but
; now a complication of diseases was ravishing his system.    He had been cou-
' fined to his bed for several months' and
• was reduced to-'Y skeleton.    Though
•''evidently glad 'to see ir.c  he' conversed
•' with the greatest difficulty, and seemed
,,to realise that it was the" beginning of
the end. He was daily growing weaker
1 and his feet were swollen to twice their
■ natural size and the cold hand of death"
■ was Upon his brow'. , "lis no use," lie
-'*;said feebly, "the doctors medicine is
. ■' not hclping^me and I am  going down
•■rapidly.,"-'. 1 prayed with him as, for° a
' i man soon to" pass into eternity, -and
"when I took his'hand-in parting it was
"the last time 1 expected to see him in
