The trackmen's strike I* being con
ducted in tbe most orderly manner, and
though the company give out from J
time to time itatement* to the effect
that the strike has not been general
and does not elect their business,
these atatements must be taken with a
grain of aalt, in the face oi the abominably irregular train service we are get
ting at present,
Locally the situation remain* much
tho same. The division is gone over
daily by a special train, carrying the
roadmaster and a couple of special
constables, sworn in unler the Bull-
way Aot, for the purpose of examining
the road bed. With this patrol and
slow running, accidents have been
averted so far on this division. Any
necessary work is being performed by
a gang of Japanese, who are nnder
bonds to a fellow-countryman at the
coast, and who, therefore, have no say
a* to what they shall do.
It was fou.d that, the appointmen'
of special provincial  police was unau
thorized by law, and the men were
brought in to  be re sworn nnder the
Dominion Railway Act as peace officers
in the employ of the company.   This
did not suit several of the Oolden boys,
who had been willing to act as provincial police, and tbey refused to place
tbemselvee under the company'e orders,
which has been   found to mean  that
the "peace officers" are really patrolmen and aro expected to walk track,
thus taking the places of the strikers.
O.io encouraging feature of the situation is lhat the Coast |sajser>, which
for tl.e first   few  days published  lhe
statement* of the company exclusively,
are now opening their column* to the
strikers, and in their editorials are calling attention to the reasonabl-iL'Sss of
the requests of the men.    Word  has
been received by the local committee of
the strikers lhat the Crow's Nest Pass
men, whe have been reported at work,
���re all solid, and also that lhe engineers
will refuse to run unless the strike is
���ettled in the next day or two.   Eastern
paper* seem to think that the company
is prepared to meet the men with lub
���tantial concessions, which doubtless'
wonld be accepted by the Brotherhood
committee now at Montreal.

Ki-erv elector interested in the school
question should take a hand in to-mor-
ro.v's election to fill tl.e vacancy on
the school trustee board. Mr. Wl.
Sutherland's term of office expires thi*
month aud an election is thus made
necessary. It is quite likely the Government will lie influenced by the result of the voting in the selection of a
site for the new school building,
Action must he taken immediately il
the building is to be used for the fall
term. The junior division cannot remain where it is after October, aod the
trustees will novel* consent to tke room
next the butcher shop being ustd foi*

somewhere the junior division will
have toclose. Tl.^ result ot the polling
wiil show which aisle i* the strongest

will be built on the south or north side

So far, we have only heard two

It will bo several days before the total

The little mountain town Vivian

Few people of Oolden are aware ..f the
ex'ent of the operations of the Golden
Placer Mining Co., at Canyon Creek.
Mr. 11. Ksti'll, the local manager, took
a representative of the Eka up to the
woikingt la.t week, and a very in-
ici est ing day was spent examining the
work already done and following the
course of the creek for a few miles ard
noting the records of lho action of the
water in by gone ages, when the waters
were rushing down currying with
them as sediment the material uf which
tlte lend es of the valley are composed.
After thii examination, the reasonableness of Mr. Estell's expectation of
striking a rich paystreak when he
roaches bedrock on his locution, il fully
established, as tl.e stream throi'ghout.
count less ages has been carrying the
tiMierjal from its canyon, which is
1.0iv fully a thousand feet in depth,
uud i.'cj railing it at the point where
ilie shsft is now being sunk. The
stream in its course has cut through
. illusions ledges of gold tearing nuanz
which may le seen en Ihe sides of
the mountains enclosing its valley.
Gold was first found by prospect ers
who weie making their way from

uaiure of tho ground. Gold has heen
found ihecutiie length of the stream
and loci parties attempted to reach
bedrock uear the point where Mr. Es-
feile has sunk his shaft. Thieaticmpt
Tailed owing to insufficient funds being
furthcoming lo provide suitable ap-
tiliui.uts lo cope with the water, and

down to a distauco of 75 feot, and at
prosent is being sunk through a deposit
of black sand which is a favorable indication of the proximity of the long
sought bid rock, he samp ing giving
more gold than at higher levels. When
bod rock is reached drifts will be run,

Krugersdoip. Muy 15, 19C1,
Dear Sir, -1 take this opportunity of
writing you a few lines hoping they
will reach you fafo and in good order.
We arrived ut Cape Town, April 28th.
after a very pleasant voyage excepting
   while at sea,
bus. thoy were all strangers to tne none
of thein being wts'ern  men.   I wrote
ther.) is a net wcrk of baib wire to if a
person ever got tangled up in it the jig
would te all up with hiin. Word has
just come in that thirty of the S. A. C.
go*, into a scrap with the Boer* aud
some of the 9. A. C. got killed and
some woun.'ed. There ia some firing
goiug on this morning to the eaat of
us. We have a big time breaking
mules, we got ten the other day and
some of the boys got a chance lo dis
tinguish themselves as bronco baiters.
There was one of the boys much smarter
than any of the rest of us. he uider
took a particularly stubborn mule. Ue
got the saddle on all riyht an 1 got on
his baok. Ac the word go, the mule
refused to act, but after teveral minute*
persuasiou the mule made a tremendous
lound end lit out across the veldt but
all of a sudden tho mule stopped but
the rider did not he went straight on
buth rider and saddle went over mule's
head. It is surprising how theso mules
can jump and back. But they are
just for transport purposes. We hare
not got our horses vet bnt expect them
in a few dityj. De Wet captured our
uniforms ou lhe way from the Cape.
Our oamp has been quarantined for
live days on account of the measels.
Albert Collins has fever anJ has been
sent to Johannesburg hospital. He is
from Goldeu, so I suppose you are acquainted with hiin. The plague is
quite privuleut iu Cape Towu and quite
a number have died, but I think they
arc getting it pretty well stamped out.
E'ght of lhe toys out of B Squadron
were left in Capo Towu on account of
them nor. being very well, is* only
those who were -.veil were allowed to
go lo tho front.   There was nothing

PROGRESS.
Some time ago there was a notable
automobile procession iu the city of Buffalo, N. Y. It was notable for its size, and
also for the fact that it was entirely com-
Cosed of automobile wagons (like that
i the cut above), built to distribute
the advertising literature of the World'a
Dispensary Medical Association, proprietors and manufacturers cf Dr. Pierce's
medicines. In mnny a town and village
Dr. Pierce's automobile has been the
pioneer horseless vehicle. These wage ns,
sent to every important section of the
country, are doing more than merely
advertise Dr. Pierce's Remedies���they
are pioneers of progress, heralds of the
automobile age.
And tills is iu keeping with "the record
made by Dr. Pierce and his lamous pe-
{.orations, which have always kept iu
he front on their merits. Dr. Pierce's
Goldeu Medical Discovery is still the
leading medicine for disorders and diseases uf the stomach and digeslive and
nutritive systems, for tlle purifying of
the blood and healing of weak lung-i.
Women place Dr. Tierce's Favorite
Prescription in the front of all put-up
medicines specially designed for women's
use. The wide benefits this medicine
has brought to women have been well
summed up in the words " II makes weak
women strong and sick women well."
The reputation of Dr. Pierce's Plea*,
ant Pellets as a safe and effective Illative for family use is international,
It may be asserted without fear of contradiction that no other firm or company
engaged iu the vending of put-up medicines cau rank with the World'*. Dispensary Medical Association, either iu lhe
opinion of the medical profession ur of
the intelligent public. Tlio Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, which is
connected with the "World's Dispensary," is alone sufficient to prove this
supremacy. Here is a grc.t usoslcru
hospital, always filled with patieuld.
where every day successful operations
i.ic performed ou nun and women whose
diseases demand the aid of surgery. No
hospital ill Buffalo is better equipped,
with respect to its modern appliances, or
the surgical ability of its stall". Dr. R, V.
Pierce, the chief consulting physician of
this great institution, has associated witli
himself nearly a score uf physicians,
each man being a picked man, chusen
for his ability in the treatment and cure
of some special form of disease.
The offer thut Dr. Pierce makes to
men aud women suffering wilh chronic
diseases of a free coit-itlUitiui. by letter,
is realty without a parallel. It place*
without cost or charge tlie entire resources of a great medical institute at
the service of the.sick. Such uu offer is
uot for one moment to be confounded
with those offers of" free medical advice"
which arc mode by people who are not
physicians, cannot aud do not practice
medicine, and are only saved from prosecution by artfully wording their advertisements so that they give tiii impression that they are physicians without
making the claim tu be licensed.'
Those who write to Dr. Pierce, chief
consulting physician to the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo,
N. Y., may do so with the assurance that
they will receive not only the advice of
* competent physician, but the advice
of a physician whose -wide experience
in the treatment and cure of disease, and
whose sympathy witli human suffering
leads him to take a deep, personal interest in all those who seek his help and
that of his associate staff of specialists.

Queer Things He DU.
John Shoup was what they oalled well
off In this world's goods���in fuel, he was
tho wealthiest man lu tho littlo town iu
which he lived. Ho and Surah hud worked
ha-d aud saved until they hud a start, and
then ho had bought and sold cattle and
shaved notes until ho was ablo to own a
llnu houso iu ths. country.
In ull this bo had succeeded, but John
hud paid but vory littlo attention to his
eduoatlun���la tact, It was a pretty hnrd
Job for him to rend, however well ho might
"rigger." Ho liked toTio considered tho
boding man of the towu and to keep up
appearances ho bud a fashion of using a
great many big words of whoso meaning
hu bod vory littlo conception. Ho was very
proud of his uow houso; aud whilo It was
building gravely Informed people that he
was going to huve a "nilrandu" running
around the outside and a "purgatory" on
top, where ho could go up and viow his
outlying farms.
Be built an opora bouse on tho nort,��,
side of tho square and lighted lt with to I
low candles. Ho said he did that becnu-*;
If he put in lamps they might "explore, *.'
and tho"ordnaneo" would got excited alts,
"jump right out of tho windows." Tlie
roller to tbe drop ourtain was hollow and
had about a pint of bullets In It, whioh
rattled furiously whenever tho curtain
wont up or down. Ho said that waste-
cause ho wanted It different from othei
theaters. Tlse stage was about six Inolii t
higher at the baok than at tbe front, so I e
oould see tho actors' feot when thsy
danced. Performers unacquainted wish
his stugo had troublo to keep from slidlr j
off Into the orchestra.
Oa had big landscapes painted on tl e
outside of his window shades by an o, 1
fellow who lived down on the creek us; I
also had him paint his portrait���head u..d

reason being that lhe styles ot ols.tl-.ss

His mother died, and as ho wantod to

he procured a metallic coffin. Vs'hen les
cause to jsuy for the ooIUn, ho was angered
ut the price charged and swore that If he
ever hud to havo another he would "telescope" to Burlington and huve them send
up one of them "italic'' coffins.
He hud .a suit before u justice of tbs,
peace with a neighbor lu regard to tho
ownership of a oalf. To save attorney',
feeshe pleaded his own case. As might be
expected, tho case was decides! against
him. He didn't see... to understand how
it could happen that way nnd told tho justice that, although ho wns duulilless u

the opinion that the chief enemies a man
has to defend himself from are visible
and external. But the real danger of
every man is from minute and often invisible foea. In the air we breathe and
the water we drink are countless minute
organisms leagued against the health of
the body.
Tbe one defense against these enemies
is to keen the blooupure. Dr-Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery thoroughly
purifies the blood, removing poisonous
substances and accretions. When the
blood is pure there is no harborage for
the germs of disease which find a lodging only when the blood is impure and
corrupt.

A story Is told ol a certain politician
whose education was somewhat defective,
an.l who In particular was' not a "born
speller," Ho bect.imt prominent, and his
correspondence therefore took on a certain
Importance.
One da; a particular friend oame to hl.n
and said, "Lawk here, William, you must
hftvii a secretary write your letters and
never undertake to write any yourself."
"Why!" asked tho publiu man.
"Because people aro laughing at your
letters, aud they will do you harm."
"Why do tbey laugh at thorn?" In aston-
Ishmont.
"Because you make so many mistakes
in spelling."
"Mistakes In spelling?" "���.'lal.ned tha
great man. "JNonsense! I rcssl my letters
all over after I writo them, and I never
Und a misspelled word."
Ho had not yet learned that, although
to a certain extent a man may safely bo
"a law unto himself," no one can be a
dictionary unto himself.��� YoutH*S Companion.

When Sir Tatton and Lady Syko. wero
In Mew York, some years ago, they staid
at a hotel. It was Sir Tatton's oustoni to
pnt his shoes outside his door ou going to
his room Ior the night. These shoes wero
enormous and had soles that seemed to be
about 0 inches In thickness, So famous
did thoy .become that guest, at the hotel
used to take their friends up stairs "to
eee Sir Tatton's boots." Sometimes a dozen persons could be seen in the corridor
Inspecting the shoes. Lady Sykes was
famous on her side for her fondness, for
