The McMurdo district beenmo fain-
ons by the exploration of A. McMurdo
the veteran prospector of the Selkirks.
Since his demise prospectors have
travelled thia part of the country from
time to time and scarcely a season
passes but some now strike is recorded,
Amongst the locations of two years
were the Pilch (cameo nnd I. X. L.
These claims were recorded by H. O.
Lowe end H. Biehnrdoson and are
amongst tl.e finest,prospects to be soon
in that j)nrt of the country. The
Pili.liV.nnwu.iB looted on the fucoof a
ridge between tho middle and south
foHwo'f Little HisMiirdo Greek. Tho
prospect discloses u line veiu from fi
inches tu 2 ft. in widih. The vein is
*xposed in paverul places and carries a
uniformly solid bo'ly of*.g:itana and
sulphMoof iron oro which assays well
in gold and silrrr. Tbe couulry rock
i<> schist aud ths vein conforms to the
Up of tho stratification'. The lend
strikes N. 27 W. and dips 34 E. The
elovftlun of the ore showing is 6.HG0

for mining, timber nnd water being

road and thereby securing good transportation.
The Challenge* is the new name
Kivon to tho relocation of the I. X. L.
This is a really excellent prospect and
was taken up last season by Mr. A. P.
Shaw, of Vancouver. Mr, .Shaw did n
considerable amount of work on the
property, having driven the tunnel 27
ft. in length, wbich is all in ore. At
tho mouth of tho tunuol are two ore
dumps holding an aggregate of JO tens
of high-grade galena interspersed with
Iron pvrites. The ore is gold bearing, j
The altitude of the location Is G,200 ft. I
The vein strikes N. 6E. The vein has;
an apparent dip of 40 E. The ore body j
runs from 18 inches to 3 ft., in width
and is well mineralised. Twonty feel
above the tunnel en open cut b��s bsen
made whioh also shows ore. There is
magnificent water power above the
proporty and plenty of timber around.
The ore is such that wo believe it could
even now be shipped to the smelter at
a profit. '
On the mountiiin on tho south side
ef the confluence of Molitirdo Greek
with the north fork of the Spillimachne
river is located the Undine, in which
Messrs. Lowe, Richardson and Ullock
art interested. This is oue of the most
promising gold roj per prospects to be
seen in tho country. The lertd risen
iu the face of n gulch over looking a
pretty little lake and is at an altitude
of 7,120 ft., above sen-level. The
mountain side from the out crop totho
lake presents a great showing of cop
por float consisting of carbonate end
sulphides. The outcrop of the vein
is at a point of 1A0 ft. above the lake.
A porphyry dyko cuts across the country and In contsot with this dyke is
the big vein of ths Undine, thn out*
crops of which are as much as 25 ft. in
width, and dip at an angle of ():> dgs.

BANQUETTED AT GOLDEN.
Mr. W. G. Mitchell-Innes Honored by the Citlzons.
On Monday evening last the Colombia Hall presented a very gay appearance when about forty of the representative poople of Oolden nnd district
attended to do honor to Mr. VV. Pr.
Mitchell-Innes. Promptly at 10 o'clock
Mr. McNeish notified those in waiting
that all wus in readiness for their
reception. Tho hull was rhsn entered
snd the festive hoard surrounded. Mr.
C. A. Warren took the chair and
Mr J. E. Urifiith th�� vice-chair.
Compliments from evory side were
passed ss to the excellence of tho menu
and It is safe to predict that all present
were more than satisfied with that
part of the programme. Just at the
cleie of the dinner oue of tho menu
cards was passed around and eaoh one
present signed' i*, aud was finally
handed to the guest of the evening at^
his own request.
The chairman proposed the toust to
"Tho Queen," which was drunk witb
musical honors, after which he feelingly remarked tbat tke bachelors of
Oolden were about to lose cno who
had formerly been io thoir ranks,
which he regretted { hut still it was to
add to his future happiness, therefore
any step in that direction would meet
with hia approval. He theu presented
the guest of the evening with a handsome smoker's cabinet, stating that it
was but a slight token of the esteem
tu which he was held not ouly by the
[���eople of Goldon, but of the whole
surrounding country.
On Mr, Mitoholl-Iuncs rising to respond ho was greeted by long and
continued applause. Ho stated that
hit; feelings wero so grrat that he could
not find wofds to express his gratitude
to tho good people of Golden for their
exceeding kindness. One thing was
certain-no matter what the future
might have in store for him, nothing
should erer cause him to forget this
eccasion. Whatever efforts be might
have mado in the pnst fcr the benefit
of North East Kootenay generally
wonld for the future lw far stiortger, if
that could be possible, lie cloned liy
thanking those who had ro honored
him and for thekindlysUusicns which
IihiI \.n*n made to the lady who was
shortly to become his wife.
Mr. Plowright sung '��� Soldiers of the
Queen" and Mr, Ullock "Robin Turn-
hon's Smiddy,"
Archdeacon Mackay mado a very
happy and amusing speech, stating
Htnpllg other things that he hud
obtained from his wife leave of absence
fcr a week, as ho hoped to have a
recturenco of the present event every
evening, and wiih a view of furthering
that object he was willing, in case the
local clergy charged too high, to pr
form the ceremony free.
Tho vice-chairman then \-reposed the
hoalth of "ThoLaditH." coupling with
witb it tlu* names of Messrs. O'Brien
and Scott. The loafit was drank
heartily and Mr. O'Brien called upon
io respond, which ho did wiih much
credit aud added thi>t several of
Iho young meu whom lie saw around
him should also have a littlo of the
responsibility. He fnriherhtated that
lie was pleased to be present at this
his first banquet in Golden, especially
as he was assisting fn doing honor to
an old Calgarluu, Hs complimented
the guest of the evening on his untiring energy and seal in inducing the
English capitalist to invest in North
East Kootenay and unearth the hidden
wealth that lay in the mountains to
ths south nad immediate vicinity,
Messrs. McNaught, Pinkham and
Sample followed in happy speeches, so
that the toast to the ladies was by ne
means neglected.
S-svorol sonps from Messrs. Plow-
right, Gibb, Ullock aud McNeish
followed and were heartily gapplauded.
Mr. F. W. Janet being called upon
stated that whilst ho was not an
orator, such as Archdeacon .Mackay or
the yonng lawyer who to recently
distinguished himsfllf, still be was
mora than ordinarily interested in the
event which would shortly take place,
owing to the relationship which existed, and he trusted the guest of the
evening and hit future wife would
have long life snd every prosperity.
Mr. j. S. Gibb complimontol Arch-
dccmi Mackay en his hiinioons nd*
dross end trusted the young men
around him would tako advantage of
ibe generous offer that had hpeti mado
by ths archdeacon. He concluded by
tendering every good wish to the guest
on the new era upon which ho was
about to enter.
Mr. K. A. Haggen stated he had
occasion several times to observe the
work that had b��n done property by
the guest and as a mining engineer be
felt he could compliment hiin on It.
He was of the opinion no one had done
more Itr North East Kootenay thau
Mr. Mitchell-Innes and he hoped he
would long be tpared to continue on
and succeed in ranking what our district deserved, namely, one of the richest of the Kootenays.
Hon, P. W. Aylmor being oalled
upon responded in a very eloquent
manner and trusted that the guest of
tbe erening should always be surrounded as he wat to-night���by sincere
friends���and judyit.g from his generens
and noble nature, bo had not the
slightest doubt bnt that should always
be tht ease.
The toaat " Our Host" was proposed
by Mr. Gibb In an appropriate speech
and ably responded to by the popular
proprietor of tba Columbia House, Mr.
McNeish.
Rev,. J. P. Evans was oalltd upon
kid delivered a tfeeck wtticK wss !ul.
of humor and muoh appreciated hy the
company.
Several other speeches and songs
followed and an evening that will long
be remembered by all as being a most
delightful one closed with "Auld Lang
Syne" and "Pod Save tho Queen."-1*
Dramatlo Club Entertainment.
Tho first entertainment under the
uiiHpic.es of the Oolden Social nti([
Athletic Club wss held in tho Columbia Hull ou Friday Nov. l"tb. Tho
programme consisted of musienrec'ta-
lion, fencing, single-stick, boxing exhibitions, and a farce entitled "The
Limerick Hoy " Mr* J*, C. Pitte always welcomed by A Onldou audience
rendered "Tbe Alabama Coon" in her
usual taking style. A recitation by
Mrs. J. A. Evans, entitled "The case
of yonng Bangs," was thoughtfully
and carefully rendered. This wes Mrs.
Even's first appearance heforc a Oolden
audience, but wc bespeak for her a
hearty welcome tho next timo she
chooses to uke part in a programme.
The fencing and single stick exhibition by Messrs. MitchelMnues and
Evans was cleverly performed and resulted in favor of tbe former. The
boxing exhibition by Harry Pughe and
Ralph Kenny was certainly n novel
feature of the programme, but it would
be hard to tell which gave the most
telling blows. But the principal event
of tho evening wus "Tbe Limerick
Boy." and those who took part certainly deserve great praise for the able way
in which each one took part, if we
should be asked our "professional
opinion." Paddie Miles certainly had
a great knack of getting other people
into trouble, but in the end it resulted
happily for all connected and proved
himself a clever postman. We hope
that the next performance of the dub
will take place at no distant date.
After the conclusion of the programme a danco followed, during;
which refrethmonts were served. The1
net receipts of the evening were$42.7;\
which places tho club on a good financial buses for the present.
County Court.
There wae a meeting of the County
Court held in Golden yesterday. Tho
following cases were on the docket;���
Moodie et ul versus Nutting- Stands

O'Brien appeared for tho prisoner and
stated ho was moving in the Supreme
Court for a writ 6f certiorari and
habeas corpus, and therefore all proceedings in tht! County Court were at
an end. Court then adjourned to meat
next February.
Golden General Hospital.
Tiie following items will no doubt
contradict, the Kamloops Standard's
paragraph as to tbe Golden General
Hospital being at (ho point'of closing
down for want ot support.
That the reduction in our annua]
grant from tbo government is a big
item wo admit, but, with tho large
amount of subscribers we bop�� to keep
our own. The lumbering camps are
our principal supporters which include
Golden, Palliser und Beaver. The
mining camps having realizsd tho value
of being subscribers havo joined in
great number.
We have no hesitation In saying that
tur Geueral Hospital is one of ihe best
of its kind in tbo interior and owing to
its large amount of Subscribers and
economical management we hope to bo
able to continue to keep from debt.
The town people and district includ-
0g Windermere fully realize tho value
of our institution aud are always ready
to give a helping hund whenever any
effort is prlng mado to raise funds for
its maintenance. The plans for an isolated cotlagn for infections cases are
now being drawn hut which was a
muoh needed want and the town will
undoubtedly be ploasnd st this move as
hereafter the patient well receive proper
accommodation without and risk of
the disease spreading. The hospital is
building this out of its own funds, but
as it will bo an exponsivo i'cin before
thoroughly fitted out. wo hope that
our member W. C. Wells wilt do his
utmost to get tho government to give
us some assistance towards this invaluable addition as well ns the reconsideration of our grant.
Tho foregoing will show our contemporary that the Golden General Hospital is in a very -flourishing condition
at tht present time. When it wants to
again give Information in connection
with our publio institution ���our pride
to abtuiii particulars before hand so
as not to misinform the public.
WEDDING BELLS.
A ve-ry pretty though quiet wedding
took place in St, Paul's church oil
Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
when Mr. W. G. Mitchell fnnes, the
popular manuger of The New British
Columbia Limited, was joined In the
bonds of holy wedlock to Miss C.
Howden by Rev. H. B. Turner, B.A. -
Some time before the hour set friths ceremony the church was filled to
the utmost, the fair sex of course being
present in large numbers, all eager io
witnesii the beautiful marriago ceremony of the Church of England.
While the rongre^til ion sang a hymtt
the bride entered, attended by little
Dorothy Jones ss maid of honor. TbO
bride was becomingly -attired in a
travelling dress of blue-grey tweed
trimmed with turquoise blue silk and
velvet, nnd carried a large bouquet oi
roses. Tho weo maid nf honor looked
exttemely pretty In a figured pink silk
dress and SVas much admired. Tho
little maid's father, Mr. F. W. Jones,
gave the bride away. Mr. James
Scott, an intimate friend of ihe groom,
performed tho onerous duties of best
man in a befitting way,
Mr, and Mrs, Mitchell-Innes intended to leave on No. 3 for Banff immediately after the ceremony, but ojj
arriving at tho C. P. R. depot it wai
fouud that the train was iiidnlinhefy
late, so the wedding pally adjourned
to the Columbia House, where a reception was held, followed after dinner by
an impromptu dance, at which a jolly-
good time was spent. ,
Mr. and Mrs. MitcbolMnnss will on
their return occupy a suite of rooms in
the Columbia Honse.

The gallant sun of the late Lord Randolph Churchill is war correspondent
for a New York paper. He won distinction in the Sudan campaign under
Lord Kitchener.
Winston Churchill, of the Fourth Has-

London Morning Post and New York
World, displayed much courage. It is
feared the Dablins and Durbans fared
badly. A Red Gross party bus gone

At six o'c'ock tbis morning the Red
Gross train returned, It reported that
ou meeting the Boer patrol the train
was hailed and the question asked what
was wanted. The officers replied they
Ind come with the train to relieve the
killed and wounded. The Boers told
them to make the request in writing
und Dr. BriBtow complied. After waiting for two hours another Boer oame

Boer replied that be had heard thero
were aboot seven. He declined to give
any information abont Lieut. Churchill.
It hus rained all day and ti sti.l raining.

Tbe armored engine has many bullet
marks, and its dome-cover is smashed,

twenty-five ton screw jack. The tender
is also pitted with bullet marks. It 1b
rumored Lieut. Churchill is a prisoner.
Tbe Natal Mercury, describing the
engagement Buys: "The enemy apparently opened fire with a maxim and two
nine pounders, getting tbe range ac-
oaartely. Tbe fire was so severe that
tbe telegraph wires and poles were de*
stroyed. Their gans were posted on a
kopje covered with br.sh wood and
their a harps hooters were hidden behind
boulders. The Dablins nnd volunteers
fighting an -unequal battle drove the
enemy back bat the fierceness of tbe
rifle and gun fire was too much for the
brave little party, which wus m eakened
at tbe outset by the overturning of the

BOERS WKRE DRIVEN BACK WITH
HEAVY  LOSSES.
British Make a Bayonet Chaige Into
Boer Trenches-Lookout Tower
Shot to Pieces by the Boen.
London, Nov. 16.���A dispatch to the
Daily Mail from Mafesiug sent by way
of Magalapye, because the rnnuers sent
southward were unable to traverse the
Boer lines, gives an iuteresting account
of tho fighting during the last week in
Ootober.   Tbe correspondent says:
"After the failure to rash tbe town,
Geueral Ouiij had recourse to the tactics employed during the siege of Pot-
cltefstriiom in 1881, making an advance
to tbe town by a succession of trenches
in echelon. Hu -h a move had been anticipated by ub for some time, and for
that reason there haa beeu seut out parties to worry the Boer, incessantly by
night attacks.
These tactics, the enemy disliked, but
he contented himself with a daily fire,
whioh exposed him to little personal
risk. Then Colonel Baden-Powell
played bis Irump card by sending ool
Fitaclareuoe's parly to worry the occupants of the trenohea. The little foroe
atole out silently in Ihe darkueia. Not
a sbot was fired; and the men, with
fixed bayonets, ttreepiug rather than
walking along Ihe veldt, gradually ap*
preached the ohief Boer position near
the race eours -. Tben, us they oloaed
In, there waa a shrill screech; lt was
Fitzolartnce's signal for onslaught.
A rlugiug British cheer, wbioh the
listener back in ths camp caught up
was Ihe only reply as the party dashed
Into the trenches. There was a fearful
���struggle, the attaokiog force oatobing
and bayouetlug the Boers nnder the
tarpaulins where they orouched, crying
for mercy. At least fifty bayonets got
to work and the havoc they wrought
was terrible.
For just a moment there was no ays*
temutic return fire; but thou a perfeot
hailstorm of bullets poured iu from the
trendies to the rear. Again Fitzolar*
ence's whittle sounded. It waa oease
fire and scatter homewards.
The British forces scattered silently,
crossing hack uuder the furious lire in
the darkness to the appoiated rendezvous, where the the roll was called. Ool.
Baden-Powell met and congratulated
Oaptaiu Fitzolarenoe and his men npon
their work, saying that it was a heavy
prioe to pay, hut that the Boers had to
be stopped making rifle trenches within
range of the town. The membera of
the party are uow the envy aud pride of
the garrison. Even the Boer commander, Botha, expressed admiration of the
attack, uud added that he would take
Mafeking ere loug. for he meant to do
oue thing or the other.
Suuday pissed quietly, tbo volunteer
band playing in tbe women's laager.
All Suuday night the Boer, poured a
rifle into the town, lt was set going
after dinner ou Suuday evening, wben
Ool. Baden-Powell hoisted a red lamp
on the cotuniauage, which was the
signal of Capt. Clarence's night attack.
The���run answered splendidly. "The
moment" tho light appeared, the Boers
opened fire, and their fusilade lasted
the whole night through.
There haa been a tremendous waste
of ammunition. Indeed, it 1b estimate!,
that 80,000 rounds of ball cartridges
were wasted on the occasion of the
night attack ou the Boer trenches.
Double rations have been served out to
the men, who are under shelter, ao as to
be on the safe side If the Boers should
sweep the towu by a _iong range rifle
fire. The garrison is .musing on finely.
The shelling oontinued all Suuday at.
intervals. About 4 o'clock iu the afternoon Gen. Ornnje seut in a flag ot
truce, giving Mafeking a laat chance to
surrender at the eleventh bonr. While
the white flag was receiving attention
the heavy bombardment continued."
The dispatch tben describes Gen.
Oronje's great attack of Monday, the
details of whiob bave already been
oabled from Col. Baden-Powell's official dispatches. "The end came," says
the correspondent, "after five hours'
lighting. Tbe enemy retired, being
heavily beaten for all time so far as
Mafeking is concerned. It was the hottest day of the Beige and the firing waa
terrific, the Boers evidenty recognizing
that tbe way iuto Mafeking, if any,
was by a kopje, which was galautly de*
fended by Ool. Walford'a men. The
garrison is jubilaut, while the Boen
have been hurled back In disorder to
their laager and will have to content
themselves with a loug range bombardment, unless tbey are strongly reinforced.
The enemy lost heavily, and for
hours after their fighting Hue had been
rolled baok, two wagons weut slowly
along tbeir position, picking up their
dead and wonnded. The Kopje resembled a shambles after the light. All
the men wer i killed by bullets or shells.
The lookout tower was shot to pieces,
while even the saddles of horses were
fearfully buttered. The whole plaoe
waa simply smashed up by the concentrated fire of aevenguns and a thousand
rifles. The Boers at first held on their
advauce pluckily, but they could not
live when they came to short range,
tb* man being abot down at 800 yards,

One of the old Ume "druuuiifrB." wbo
bM beet In tbe harness nwirly Unit ft
cwitnry, recently ipun a yaru which wae
listened to one erening by 11 number of
the profession, aud a constantly inerais-
ing crowd of llstenere, who were treated
to a tale worth reproduction, as It Is odd,
unique nnfl slightly romantic ns well at
hair raising. As near ns can be recalled,
the old gentleman told his story about
as follows:
"Nearly 40 years ngo I wns nn adventurous young chap ou my way from tb*
stute of New York to some uew points
In tbe Buckeye State. I had been on tbe
road for a time as what you now call an
old fashioned traveler, but wns out of
employment then, and was working my
way aloug from place to place, without
any particular object lu view beyond the
possibility of reaching the Western Reserve, where I had friends whom I might
appeal to, urtlesi I struck something bet*
ter eu route.
"I had got well along through western
Pennsylvaula and had gathered In a few
dollars at one small village, hut was soon
obliged to start ont for new fields, I concluded I would more to a larger point
about 00 mllet to the west through a
sparsely settled and wild country.
"I began my Journey shortly after tun
up one day ond made very good progress
until 2 or 3 o'clock, wben a storm arose,
and I took refuge In a cave 1 could see up
on the hillside In the cliffs. It kept me
firy, but I lost my bearings when 1 came
out to rename my journey, and In two
minutes I had no Idea whicli way 1 was
going.
"1 kept going, however, and when
night came on 1 hadn't tbe remotest conception of my bearings except that I was
tn tbe woods aud tbe only road about me
did not appear to lead anywhere. After
floundering about until 8 o'clock or later
perhaps 1 struck what appeared to be a
more generally traveled roadway, and in
the distance along Hint highway I saw
what appeared to be a light in n window.
"I itruck out that way. I kuew from
experience that western Pennaylvaulans
were, as a rule, hospitable and generous
to a fault with strangers nnd doubted not
but that I would find a cordial welcome.
"It was a house of weatherboarding
and logs nnd much more pretentious than
others I had seen along the road, but Ita
situation wns decidedly tbe loneliest 1
bnd ever seen. It wns practically In tbe
midst of a big wood.
"I stepped boldly to the door and
knocked. It wns opened quickly by a
comely woman, who showed signs of
alarm at my appearance, though she bad
opened tbe door as quickly as though she
bnd been looking for mc. She did not
ask me to come in, but 1 told her I was
lost, hungry, tired and dirty nnd sleepy
and begged her to accommodate me for
tbe night.
"She said she was sorry, but - the
couldn't- do it. 1 nsked her how far It
waa to the next honse, nud when she told
mc it wns three miles I told her sbe
wonld bave to take me In whether sbe
would or not, as 1 was utterly tuckered
ont and couldn't walk a rod farther.
"She hesitated, but finally said I could
stay, provided t didn't have any objection
to sleeping tn n nmin witb a corpse. I
wasn't looking for that sort of n roommate, aud the proposition stnrtted ine.
But I wns tired enough to have slept in
a morgue, and I told her It would be all
right, If ihe could brace me up .with a
bite of supper.
"She fed me In a few minutes ou a lot
of cold things, all of wbich tasted very
good, aod then she conducted me Into the
adjoining room,' whose chief nccupnnt
was tbe corpse, lying on a table covered
with a sheet A lounge stood alongside
the wall not far away, aud this, the hostess informed me, 1 might occupy.
"She offered uo information concerning
my roommate, nnd I was sufficiently polite hot to ask for none. Evidently tt was
no one ahe cored much about, is ihe
showed' no signs of grief,
"A lamp was burning dimly on the
mantel, and by this she aald I could light
myself to bed wben I was ready to retire. I wos ready as soon as she got out,
and in a minute had off my muddy boots
and coat, and was soon under the only
covering the lounge afforded���a piece of
cloth, which resembled an old cost off
horse blanket of some kind.
"While 1 was absolutely fagged out, I
couldn't go to steep, though I doxed a little during the first half hour. The
strangeness of tbe whole business grew
upon me each time I turned over to start
In on a much needed nap, and 1 began to
recall th* tales I had heard about counterfeiters, Illicit stills, etc., In tbat section.
"At last I opened by eyes wide ond lay
watcbtng the figure upon the tnble. or
rather the outlines os shown b; the sheet.
While thus engaged I saw o movement
beneath the sheet, and before I had time
lo think of ghosts or realise wbat lu thr
world was going on, the corpse imeti'ij
the n!ie"t down in front of him aud beckoned for me to come over.
"I thought I bad nightmare, perlmps, |
and himply stared In dumb amusement.
It beckoued again, and still r&elrlng uo
response, swore at me In a vigorous whisper and told me to get up and ceuie closer
to bim.
"Now, I hod lots of grit, hy Inherit*'
once, and my wits were gradually returning to me. I was about to defy
ghosts and everything else of tbe sort
and walk over toward the supposed
corpse, when there was a sound of
wheels outside, and 1 could hear a bors*
oud vehicle driven op and bolted la from
of tbe house.
"The corpse hastily motlonad me to
lie down again, and dodging beneath bis
sheet as he waa at first, a profound silence reigned In the room. Everything
was as dim and mysterious os lt was be*
fore tbe disturbance.
"There was mor* moTtntat In the next
room, however, and t heard tbe woman
open the door carefully and let In a '
mnn, whose voice I could heer now and
tben aa the two talked In low tones over
something wbich .appeared to pleas*
thero a good deal, as they laughed quite
heartily at .times. One* I thought I
saw the sheet on th* table shake, but I
wasn't quite certain.
"lt was then about 0 o'clock, and I
fancied some neighbor had come In to sit
up with the dead. Presently the woman
opened the door of onr room very gently,
tiptoed over to tbe table, looked around
to see that everything was all right, stop*
pod a moment os If to listen to my
heavy breathing, Indicating that I was
sound asleep, as sbe supposed. Then
she slipped out again, softly closing th*
door after ber.
"Instantly the corps* sat up listening,
und I could see that It was o well built
mun, not much emaciated for a dead
man, I thought, ond on tbe whole not a
bad looking or unintelligent appearing
fellow. I listened, too, and could hear
the couple In tbe uext room talking os
before, but finally, after o f*w minutes,
they weut into ths far room from tb*
other side of the main apartment, In tb*
center ot the house, wher* w* could not
even bear their voices.
"Tben tbe mon on th* table turned bis
attention to me, having thrown aside th*
sheet aud ut up, He was attired In Ws
best clothes for tbe funeral, but was Iii
his stocking feet He asked me to get
Us boots out of the corner, which 1 did.'
He tben went on to tell me, hurriedly
and scarcely above o whisper, that h*
bad beard roe com* In and knew I wss a.
stronger, and hs wanted me to stand bi
him In case he needed assistance.
"He snld that the woman wu bis wife,
and tbnt the man with her waa a .neigh-.
bor, who wanted to marry her, and tbuf,
thoy bad connived together to poison
bim.
"Tho poison had worked oil right np tii
a certain point, but In the 24 hours ho
bnd been 'laying out* It had loat Its grip,
some way, nnd he wasn't as dead as tbey
thought be was. He wasn't feeling
especially strong and healthy just then;
he snld. but thought he was able to havf
a little settlement with the guilty coupl* -
that would afford bim considerable gratP.
ficatlon, If bis plans worked out without
a hitch.
"After having explained this much to ���
me, he asked me to wait until he came
back or called for roe, and, taking on a**.
that stood In the corner bythe fireplace,
he went ont ot the room. TVhat happened during the next ten minutes 1 do not.,
know, but nt the end of that time tbo:
man came back without the ax and, tell*, \
Ing me that everything was nil right
asked me to Jain biro In the main room,
while he got something to eat aud espo-
dally something to drink. ,',
"He nsked me to drink with him, which-
I did, and nl��o asked me to hold open his
carpetbag while be filled It with such
nrticles as he might need for n journey.
Ho suggested nt tbe same time that it
might perhaps be jnst ns well If 1 didn't
nsk auy questions, which hint 1 carefully
followed.   The strain was beginning to
tell on mc, and I-was getting anxious to. ���
Ite somewhere else, 1 didn't really car* ,
where.
"In a few minutes my friend wos ready .
for his next move, and, Inviting me to foi-**.
low him, we went out to the vehicle wo ���
h*d beard driven up an hour or so before, ���'
nnd. getting In, he drove us nway u fast .
as the darkness aud condition of tbe road
wonld admit. Ha sold nothing for two .
hours, when he stopped suddenly nud told
me we were to port company there.
"He uid It was the forks of the rood,
and off to tbe left I wonld find o store -
and half way house, where I could find
a bed till morning. As for himself, he
would go In another direction, and, with
many thanks and a cordial good night, bo
rapidly disappeared in tbe darkness.
"I found the inn all right and got a bed,   '���!
but .didn't sleep much,   1 Was too busy
thinking.   Wben morning came, I uid ���:
nothing to my host, for I had made up '
my mind that whatever my companion
of the night before had done he bad had
good reason for doing, aud I would not
be Instrumental In having htm suffer moro   *
th>n he had already suffered.
"I asked a few casual questions at tho   .
breakfast table, but tbe man and bis wife
both appeared to be ofrold of counterfeiters or moonshiners and would scarcely
say a word.
"A year and o half afterword���I bad
reached Ohio tben���the newspapers, not
as enterprising os they are now nor by
any means as numerous, contained tho
story of tbe finding of a couple of skeletons In a lonely house lu a remote section
of western Pennsylvania and near them
an ax with rusty blood stains upon It
"I hove often wondered why thot man
did not set the honse on firo when ho
left It, nnd I con account for his not doing so only upon the ground that he did
not wish to moke me a wltneu to any
criminal act on bis port.
"A thousand times since I have wondered whatever became of that man, If
he ever went back to the seen* of hia
crime and where he located after leaving
that lonely house In the woods."���Philadelphia Press,

THE INSPECTOR
OF STEAMBOATS
For the Dominion government Was Unable to Find *
dure for ITCHING FILES���After 9 Team of
Torture He Wss Positively Cured by
Dr. Chase's Ointment.
Mr. O.P.St. John, the Dominion Inspector of Steamboats,
residing at 246 Shaw street, Toronto, was for many years chief
engineer on the lake steamers, and is a prominent citizen.
In the following voluntary letter Mr. St. John tells of his
efforts to rid himself of the misery of Itching Piles and of his
final success by using Dr. Chase's Ointment. - He says:���
" I suffered for nine years from itching piles. At times
being unable to sleep on account of the annoyance caused by
them. After trying almost all remedies'in vain, I began the'
use of Dr. Chase's Ointment, which entirely cured me. I
cannot speak too highly of it. I have recommended it to
several of my friends, all of whom have been cured by its use."
Dr. Chase's Ointment is an absolute eurtlbf'jtfjfcr rth is'
the only remedy guaranteed fo cure pil-M, whether Win*, itching,
bleeding, or protruding. It is the only pile1 cure having the
endorsement of eminent physicians md of the best citiuens in

A REDHOT SERMON.
Pretteketf In front of tfee Gallawe to
��� Condemae* Mon,
Henry XI. Clemencc, tbe auctioneer, iu
the course of his business dealings with
men throughout Worcester county wires
Into possession of many peculiar prints,
but he possesses none that he prises more
than a copy of a sermon delivered by the
Kev. Thaddeus Maccarty, the Revolutionary pastor ot the Old South church,
to if negro about to be hanged for a
heinous crime. In th* ante-Revolutiou-
' ary days It was the practice to bring a
doomed criminal Into church and have
the preacher give him a spiritual seiid-
offr Thii sermon was delivered in tbo
year 1768, long before the Bostouese took
It into their heads to sever diplomatic, relations between the American colonies
and their Uncle George, tbe English king.
This particular colored man was apprehended, tried and sentenced to be hanged
���by the neck. History does not give th*
Cull name of th* colored man who waa
preached to witb a rope around his neck
and a grave dug within sight, but In the
sermon he ia referred to as Arthur, ur
more specifically and with a view to giving Arthur a tip that there was no slip
of the noose likely In his case, ."tho dying
Arthur."
The Rev. Thaddeus was a great painter with words, and to the unfortunate
j, Arthur be pictured tbo aether world with
���Told fashioned colors. To read the sermon even at this day one with a powerful
imagination can almost sniff the brimstone and can realise how Arthur must
have felt If he sat thero with the whole
of Worcester county occupying the pews.
Arthur probably wasn't tickled to any
extent.
Ho wu Informed that a cot bed made
of brimstone, with a mattress lined with
live coals that uever burned out, wus
aWalting him In the event of bis dying
Unpenitent. According to references in
tbe sermon to the people, there must have
Im+ii a large number present. Io fact, in
those days, wben prizefights, horse races
and even tbe smoking of tobacco were
held to bo sinful, seeing a murderer off
on his last Journey was about tbe only
sporting event of tbe times, and tbe peu-
' pie docked but in large numbers to see
the trap sprung and the victim drop.
This sermon was printed by Kneeland
A Adams of Boston, and the exact date
of its delivery was Oct. 20. 1708. Tbe
pastor of tbe Old South church was evidently an expert at this sort of preaching, for he was lu In great demand, and
' there are the bodies of murderers buried
lu the Greeu Hill district, one of them
woman, to whom he preached In tbe
o|H-ii air In Worcester toward the close
of the last century.

The minister was preaching a course of

bad a severe cold, and It was almost impossible for bim te get through the regular service. The sermon could be omitted and It was, and the congregation departed with feelings of deep sympathy
for the minister. Not so one woman.
She was not a member of the congregation, and when she departed If thought

filled with maledictions. But If her feelings did not find Tent In words just then
they did as soon as sbe was within reach

when a couple of persons in mufLi, a

asked a question as to parsons as
passengers, which unloosed the sailor's tongue. He denounced parsons
(al sea) and their ways in such
plain English as reminded one of
our army in Plunders, mid told
stories not redounding to clerical

At length his tales became so decided in manner, and telling him

who unluckily had noticed thu manoeuvre; "though we are parsons wo
like to hear the truth; indeed, there
Is nothing we enjoy so much as stories lo the discredit of the cloth." In
the dress of the church clergy of 2<U

differences, which enabled one to decide ut lirst sight whether the wearer belonged to the school of Puscy
or wns a follower of (say) Daniel
Wilson. I believe there Was once a

accustomed to wear swallow-tails all

Uev. Septimus Harding, thu sweet

did. I used to know a clergyman,
vory recently dead, who, till within
the last half do/en years���when his
last dress coat got too old for service��� never 'worn any other kind of
coat. It need hardly be said he was
hyper-evangelical. I have noticed
that iu the matter of coals and
trousers theru is getting to be a clerical laxity. Short couts even In

thai there was to be a dance in connection witli his church that night,
and hearing the organ grinding out
