The Windormere District.
A writer iu the B, 0. Mining Journal says : ���
"After our return we started now
in another direction, for the Windermere distriot. Windoraiero is ahou1* 80
miles from Fort Steele. We took wagon to tbat place along tho prettiest
road I have ever travelled. This is
the Uolden road, as the stago still
brings mails and passengers in from
that point. Thero is n lino roach of
beautiful pine and tamarack. The
vegetation grows up close te the track.
The greater pan of tho road i iiu lofty
pines and tamarack shade the travel-
lei'. The first dny we got as far hs the
crossing of thi Kdotshay river, about
four miles ffom fori Hteelo. Here ico
anoRtnped for the night, putting the
usual iC'&trnilit oa the borsen. We
placed our bod on tho bridge and bad
a comfortable rest with the Kootenay
fiercely aud sloeplessly passing under.
Near tho bridge is Canal Flat, through
whioh a canal wus opened a few years
ago, and which hus since been cloeod,
as the waters of the Kootenay, (lowing
iuto the Columbia, increased tbo volume of water u such an extent that
ranchers made a strong objection. This
is a remarkable place, the Houree of tlio
Columbia bogins at Uud Lake, a few
miles from where the Kootenay pa$se*
into a southern direction. The canal
was o piece of work easily constructed,
but the locks were evidently not well
put in, as less water migbk hava flowed through. Baillie Grobam was the
promoter ot this Bcheme and the government unwisely took it up and gave
the company thirty thousand acres of
tbo best land in the district. The canal ie now a ditch for frogs to sport in,
a-id Baillie Grobam & Company have
their thirty thousand acres. Years
gone by,many will remember, this gentleman wrote about big-horn, wild
goats, etc., and the number of times be
crossed the Atlantic to kill thein. Tt
also revives otio's memory over the
controversy which took place between
Mr. Bailllo Grobam and Mr. Fanning,
the popular curator at Victoria, over
the character aud sj.ecies of the wild
animal a in t lie Rockies. Mr. Fanning,
as a result, left the would be hunter
and naturalist without a claw to
scratch with,
Having good, sound teeth, eea-biscuit
became vory palatable. Early next
morning, which was Friday, with a
guide who worked at the particular
claim we intended to see, wo saddled
onr horses for a thirty-mile trip. A
mile bolow this is n townsite of the
short lived name of Columbia City, all
laid off with agent on hand. For somo
reason the name was changed to Peterborough. It takos an early start to be
in time on the ground. Nine miles
down the Columbia wo crossod two
large creeks, Toby and Horse Thief.
Along tho northern or opposite sidn we
followed out and in tho course of the
Horse Thief, Our guide was not att
adept, so our wanderings wero similar
to the mazes of tha wolf trail, how-
over, wo reach-ad our destination at
10:.10 p.m. dark enough to sec. The
last five miles were rough, with fallen
timber and sheivy. precipitous side
| bills, oyer which wo dragged our
horses. A shower of ruin a few miles
before roachiug our destination mado
It uupleasant, but wo dried by the
camp tive. Thia time wo retired for
the night under a tent. Next dav the
'Main' claim was reached, ono or two
miles further on. This Boems to be in
line with the now famous 'Red Line'
on Boulder Creek, over tho line from
Horso Thief. So fur as can be judged
from external appcanuico and a few
feet into the rook, '.he 'Main1 ti a mine
about 10 feot wido, solid, and assays
well. Further depth was ordered, and
if expectations can bo realized a valuable mine is hove.
Teu miles from its mouth tho Horse
Thief ia not so rapid, and grand meadows about a inilo wido extend for
over 15 miles.
Our object accomplished, and having
giveu a day's rest to our horses, wo
started homewurd. The day wus pleas-
ant and the road much shortened. Tbs
"Red Line" is about S-i feet wide and
assays over $400. It has been bonded
for $110,000, two parties being anxious
to get hold of it. The -general outlook
oEtho Windermere distriot is good, and
every one is hopeful and cheery over
the prospect. Thore aro dozens of
other claims which for the present lio
dormant until at least the Red Line
proves ita richness- We trust that
lis�� its immssako, tho "Thin Red
Lino," its iamo will pass down to
posterity o-oil that its discoverers may
retire in comfort and affluence.

From tho Trlbuno, Welland, Ont.
Miss Hattio Archer, of Welland, an
estimable youog lady, whose acquaintance extends among a large number of
citizeus of ihe town, has tlio following
to s.iy regarding tho virtues of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Poople:--
In the fall of 1897 I was taken vory ill.
I wu* nervous, weak and debilitated.
At this lime the least exertion caueod
great fatigue. My appetite wus poor
and 1 was attacked with froquept siok
bptuluohos. Ijsi'eduaHy grow worso
until I was so weak I i'.ould barely walk
through lhe tifeusa. I was very pale
and emaciated and finally beoatne cu-
tirely incapacitated. VariouB modi-
ciiifj wore resorted io but jjave ne re-
liuf. Later I was treated by two ofthe
best physicians of tho town. One sard
my blood was poo aud watery. I
followed hie advl:o for some timo
but did not improve Then tho second
doctor was called and he said he could
help ine, but after thoroughly testing
hia medicines without btrioft, I gave it
up and despaired of ever getting well.
My grandmother hudlvoii reuding at
that time much about t)r. Williams'
Pink Pills and persuaded me td try them
That wns about January, JSi>8, From
tho first '.he results wore roally marvel
Ious, boing far beyond my friend's expectations. After taking five boxes I
can stand more fatigue than I conld
for two years. I havo gained woight
splendidly; can take my food with a
delightful relish, and again feel checr-
ftfl, healthy and strong. I would further say that the change is whollv duo
to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I hope
that my testimony will prove beneficial to other girls similarly afflicted.
The experience of years has proved
that there is absoluetely no disease due
to a vitiated condition of the blood or
shattered nerves, tbat Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills willr.ot promptly oure, and
those who are suffering from such
troubles would avoi I much misery and
save money by promptly restoring to
this treatment. Get ths genuino Pink
Pills every time and do not bo persuaded to take tin imitation or some other
remedy from a dealer, Who tor the
Bake of extra profit to himself, may
say is "just as good." Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills oure when other medlclnos

I have teen in British Columbia. A
largo Indian reserve is uear bero, and
a large tract of lund is und-.i* cultivation. One peculiar circumstance 1
may mention that struck me &��� fin*
usual. We could not get a loaf of
bread ut any hotel. I can't account
for it, but it struck me as peculiar that
either going or coining wo could not
pfouuro bread except at private houses
Wo could get all the whisky wo could
have the strength to ask for, if not to
pay for.
Going further on four miles wo camo
to the crossing on the Columbia at
Sainton Beds. There was quite a stir
bore. The 'Beds' are not literally
where salmon used to rent. Only mon,
prospectors, etc., could have so littlo
sense as to do that. But men did
sleep cn theso flats. The water was
still high and the Beds were yet nearly
a swamp. Wo discharged onr horses
for the night to make t ho best of it, as
we intended to do. Thero is hero an
hotel, store, blacksmith shop ami a
sawmill. A few dozen prospectors are
encamped around on this 'bed,' so
fruitful in rheumatism. I wonder
should you bs told that here, likewise,
no bread oould be secured at tho hotels,
beast any the worse for
so interesting a trip. Tho impression

THE BROTHER OF JI.
Bj WILLIAM HEHBY BHELT0H.
[Copyright, ISM, by th. Author.]
The roar" of nearby battle and tbe
hissing of flying missiles overhead
rendered the voices of the mep indistinct and mercifully swallowed up some
uncalled for oaths and ribald jests. Suddenly the darkness iu the sunken road
was softened and illumined by a red
reflection from burning stacks and farm
buildings on the invisible field.
The groups of men under tbe shelving banks, the long artillery train and
the trees overhead took on the 'lurid
hne of a dragon's grotto in a play,
while the bank which shut off the view
at tbe fire wus lighted by a more than
noonday brilliance against tho fierce
conflagration. The brightest light
streamed across the very apex of the
hill through which the road had been
cnt. The jagged stone wall was nearly
leveled with the earth. Not u tree or
bush broke the lighted expanse, iu the
very midst of which appeared the silhouetted figure of a mun with head bent
forward and hands clusped. His broken
cup strap trembled below his chin, and
his haversack, crowned by an inverted
tin cup, was hitched np into an absurd
hump on his back. At the man's feet,
a bare earthen monnd rose against the
line of the broken wall, and something
that looked from below like u crooked
root growing out of the side of the
mound seemed to grasp the red light of
the flaming stacks. Around the dark
figure the minie bulls and fragments
of shell wailed like a jerky harp.
"There ain't no flies on Henry,"
mumbled a wheel driver through a
mouthful of hard tack.
"Come down from there, Price,"
cried the captain, who had walked back
on the road, attracted by the light.
There waa not the slightest movement in the bent figure.
"Price!" roared the captain.
Henry Price sank slowly to hia knees
and pressed his face to the red twisted
root.   The action of the man crouching
The stMiouetted /To ure of a man,
over the mound was so strange and hia
position ao perilous that the captain's
anger gave way to a feeling of pity,
which waa half admiration for the fellow's Insensibility to danger. Bo looked on for one irresolute moment, and
then ordered a sergeant to bring Price
down. This was not such a hazardous
duty as might at first seem, for th. noncommissioned officer had but to clamber
up the bank and clutch the clothing ot
the oblivions man and drag him over
the declivity. The two came down together out of the glare into the dull red
light ot the cut, followed by a drift of
pebbles and dirt.
Henry Price scrambled to his feet
without resenting the action of the sergeant or so mnch as- noticing the presence of the captain. He took off his old
cap and drew hia hand across his damp
forehead. His words wero not addressed
to the crowd about him, but rather to
his own guilty conscience.
"It's my work. I did It."
"Did what, Henry I" asked the captain, laying his hand kindly on Price',
shoulder.
The stricken nun appreciated tho
friendliness t>f the action and recognized
the presence of his commanding officer.
He wa. eager to speak.
"It's my brother np there. I killed
him. I've been waiting a year to find
out for certain. I did it "Price threw
up his arms with a gesture of despair.
The light streamed down on to his
ghastly upturned face and marked It
with tiie color of blood.
In an Instant he recovered himself.
"Listen, captain!" he exclaimed
eagerly. "It wu thi. way; He wu in
the southern army, Jim wae My regiment formed In this cnt ia the other
battle. We were ordered np to the top
rt thi. very bank. As I came to tha top
���right there, captain���a soldier rushed
in above ue. Our guns went off together. That soldier wu Jim. I uw his
face u he tell, My God, I can never
forget hii look, captain. I wu near
enongh to catch him in my arms, but
ny foot slipped, and I fell back into tbe
road. I wai mad to climb up again, but
th. reb. charged with a yell through
the ont and .wept us ont, I hoped it
wu only a wound, but now I know tb.
truth, Captain Sandsrson���I did li"
Poor Price wu an abject picture ot
mls-ny u b. ottered th. final three
words, standing dry eyed In tb. red
road. "Ton ue," he contlnnsd, pointing upward, "Jim lay just thn. where
he fell, until the burial party found
him-and tbey didn't half do their
work. Look, captain, ttfst's hia skeleton hand thrust out of his grave���Jim's
band, with th. gray alien beaten into
tb. dirt by th. rain."
"My dear fellow," uid the captain,
"there le no certainty that it is your
brother."
* "Don't I knowt" said Price, with a
hopaless expression of conviction. "Jim

when we wer* boy. together. The vary
Mm. finger la gone from that hand np
then.
"I killed my brother!"
Price resented almoet angrily the iort
of sympathy tbat tried to throw doubt
upon the identity of the remains. Ber.
oral of the men who climbed np under
tbe shelter of the bank to where they
could get a near view of the mound In
the flero. light of tbe conflagration reported the exact condition of th. skelc
ton hand. The index finger wu certainly wanting, and a rag, ot gray
���leeve, beaten down and rotted by th*
rain, lay about th* opening ia th. nil
The only consolation that remained to
the stricken and contrite brother wu
the sad dnty ot reburial and the erection of aome object to mark the place.
Bnt for the restraint put upon him
Price would have gone instantly about
this work regardless of the scathing fire
that swept the strangely lighted and
exposed mound on the crest of the bill
He unhooked a shovel from one cf the
caissons and leaned impatiently on it
awaiting his opportunity, but the final
desperate straggle in the light of the
burning buildings necessitated the huty
withdrawal of the battery from its
cramped and defenseless position, and
when quiet settled at last over the field
Henry Price wu aeparated from the
sunken road by two lines of pickets,
and morning found th. battery n long
distance from Groveton-crossroads.
Soon after dawn Price presented himself before the captain at the roadside.
His face was haggard and hii appearance indicated that he had passed a
sleepless night. He wu received with
all the respect and sympathy due to the
brother of Jim.
'This ia my last battle," he said. "I
have had a warning. There's Jim baok
on the bill, half buried, and I shan't
live to reach him. Promise me one
thing, captain���after the fighting la
over have him decently buried."
"Don't be silly," said the captain.
"Promise me, sir," wid Price.
"If we holAthe ground," wid th.
captain, "I'll have everything don.
that yon wish; bnt pluck np heart, my
man. You'll live to grow gray hair,
yet."
"My hours are numbered," said
Price. "I am resigned to my fate now
that I have your promise that you will
look after Jim."
The captain wu a kind hearted man,
and the despondency of Jim's brother
touched him. "Go back to th* forge,"
he said, "and stop there. We'll cheat
fate of ita victim."
"That's not my style!" exclaimed
Price, and he turned away from the interview with the indignation of a nun
whose courage had been impugned.
Before another night every extra duty
man had taken a nnmber at theguna.
In the ragged garden of a burning
honse Henry Price stepped eagerly into
a vacant place alongside a hot gun and
pnt out his left hand to have the buckskin thongs of the blackened thnmbstall
knotted abont his wrist.
"I reckon my time hu come," h*
���aid, looking across at the man with tha
lanyard and glancing down at the boy
whose place be had taken. "It might
better have been me than Dick."
There wu little time for talk in th.
midst of the fierce work that ensued in
the neglected garden until the opposing
battery wu silent. When the firing did
cease, the sooty cannoneers threw themselves down on the trampled weeds, except Henry Price, who walked abont
on the blackened and smoking tnrf before the muzzle of the gun, every movement of his nervous figure uttering th.
dumb acctuation, "I did it." Every
comrade knew that he wu in the des-
perate mood which impel, men eagerly
to court death in some forlorn hope.
Henry Price wu impatient of inaction and incapable of rest. Whenth.
battery biased away again, puncturing
the dun smoke with red flashes, and
the return shells plowed the old garden
between the hot guns, the tense excitement and ibe bard work filled him with
grim satisfaction. "Whin th. nun ia
front ot him fell, he caught the grimy
sponge and wielded it fiercely, glad to
be uncovered, as if he had come that
mnch nearer hll fate. Once he fell himself aa he sprang backward to give the
gun an opportunity to bark, but it wai
only a tangle of trampled rosebushes
that caught hll heel Instead of amea-
wge of forgetfulness.
In front of the tangled garden the
fields sloped away for a mile into a
broad valley, made up of pasture and
grainfield and fenceless roads, away to
tbe dark wood, beyond tbe red railroad-
embankment. In the early darkness of
that wild night Henry Price was half
mad to shoulder a musket and get down
into the line of his old regiment somewhere in the thunder of rifles that rolled
over the valley.
The line, ot itan pursuing each other
fascinated him. Hia old regiment wai
somewhere in the action.
Tbere was forgetfulness down there,
and, for him, back on the bill, only the
torture ot memory. The long battle
might end In that fierce conflict. He
counted himself u a dead nun.. Why
not hav* it over at once! He could
wrench a gun from stiffened fingers
and help himself to a cartridge box
without asking. An irrepressible Impulse impelled him to plunge into that
fiery vortex u a moth flies into a lighted candle. He ran down the hill through
the pasture. Nobody noticed the paining of a shadow into th. darkness. Th.
men In the battery Wen too Intent oa
the vast display of pyrotachnics.

"1 wasn't always in tbis business," he
snid, "for uiy real taste was in tbe dramatic line, and I made my first appearance ns Wezsooskl, tbe Wonderful Win-

HE HAD BEEN TO SEA.
Bnt Ills Biperlence Didn't Pit Him
For  Kill Unit  a  Yacht.
A government olticlnl tells this story of
Sam Allertou's experience witb bis
yacht I
Mr. Allerton built himself a Hue country bouse on the shores ot Lake tleneva,
Wisconsin. It was us tine aa anybody's
home in tbat locality. When be hnd the
house about finished, some one told him
that hc would have to have n yacht, uot
one of the modern stenm yachts such as
yo)i see do vn east, but a sailing boat.
lie ordered one made aud was up at the
lake when It reached there. He wns
very proud ��f his yacht, and although he
hud never been on one before concluded
thnt he wo ild liko to take a sail right
away. In lila younger days hc hnd gone
tisblug a tl uc ur two In a canoe nud In
thut wny bud learned the rudiments of
steering a boat, so hc coucludcd to take
the helm." Looking over the group of
loungers that had gathered about, he
shouted out the Inquiry:
"Who among us hns been to sea?"
"I hus, Bab," suid a tall, rawboned colored man, stepping forward,
"You'll do for one," Bald Mr. Allerton.
"Now, who else has been to sea?"
Nobody answering, he turned to the
colored man aud ordered him to jump
aboard, saying: "We two will be enough.
We can handle her."
The sails were set, the boat released
from its moorings, nud a start was made.
The wind was directly offshore and
blowing brisk. Mr. Allerton enjoyed the
sensation hugely nnd congratulated himself on the investment he bad made. He
was sailing directly before the wind, and
he boomed ahead in splendid style. By
and by they approached tbe opposite
shore, and, ufter making several frantic
efforts to change the course of the boat,
Mr. Allerton culled out to the colored
mnu "wbo bad been to sea:"
"Here, you! How are we going to
turn thin blamed thing around? I can't
do anything witb her."
" 'Deed, mister, 1 don't kuow what to
do. 1 don't know nothing 'bout tbem
there sails."
The two men pulled aud hauled and
perspired, but to no effect, and the yacht
went on tbe rocks with a smash. As
Mr. Allerton waded ashore be tinned
angrily to the colored mnn, who dragged
himself drippingly after him, nud Bald:
"I thought you told me you had been
to sen?"
"1 wns, salt; eight years."
"What the deuce am yon on at scar

ALL MEN ARE LIARS.
Bo a Barber Ban and Trle�� to Prove
Ilia  l'ropoaltlon.
"1 dou't want to think HI of my fellow
men," said the barber the other afternoon, "but sometimes I am forced to believe that u goodly share of them are
prone to prevarication. 1 mean by that
tbey nre given to avoiding the truth
when the truth would answer just as
well."
"Exactly," assented the Snuuterer.
"Suppose you give me a bill ot particulars."
"Well," continued the mun of the razor, "1 wns thinking of a half dozen or so
customers 1 huve asked during the course
of tbe dny whether or not they didn't
want their hair cut. Every man of 'em,
instead of comlug out with u plain 'uo'
for an answer, hemmed and hawed aud
said something about being In a hurry or
not having time or u similar excuse. Today was no exception cither. It's thnt
way every day. Of course the barber Is
on, and tbe way some ot the customers
get red hi the face makes mc think they
are giving him a ghost story. Why, I've
bad a man tell me be hadn't time to get
his bnlr cut and then climb out of my
ebalr nfter I hnd finished shaving hiin ami
stand around and tnlk for half an hour
or twice ns long as It takes to trim up a
bead of hair. It's often the same when
we suggest a shampoo. Now, just because a barber asks a customer If he
doesn't wuut something more than a
shave when once be Is In the chair Is no
reason why the customer should teel
obliged to spend more tbnn be ut first Intended to, nor Is It nny reason why the
customer should prevaricate about being
rushed to death In order to get out uf It.
Ilow'd you liko that shave, air? It was
all right, eh? Thank you! I suppose
you'll have your hair cut this afternoon?"
"IOr���no," responded (he snuuterer.
"Yon see, I haven't time"���
But just then be caught the barber's
eye and hurried out of the shop before

Roll Your ttraas Well.
The effect ot rolling is t;> crush down
the bigger plants thnt flourish among
the grass aud to Injure the grass itself
hut little. Tho bigger plants nre mostly
weeds, which, If allowed to grow unchecked, would soon cbokc tho more
slender grass,
If a footpath across a field becomes
disused, It will bo found that the grass
which grows up In Its place li of fnr superior purity tn that in the rest of the
field. Constant pressure hns stnmped out
the roots of the weeds nud left ouly tbe
pure grass.
Another advantage of rolling Is thnt it
makes the grass grow more thickly. The
ground becomes intertwined with a net<
.work of plants, nnd when this bna been
going on for 50 years or mure that rich,
velvety turf is produced which can be

Here Is the proof :-
Mrs. & Horning, Glasgow Street,
Guelph, Ont., saysi "Doan's Kidney
Pills are grand. I have not been III since
taking them, which was over a year ago
but winter, and can give them my warmest
praise | for they restored me to health aOer
25 years of suffering, Twenty-five years
ago I sprained my back severely, and ever
afneo my kidneys have been In a very bad
state. The doctors told mo that my left
kidney especially was In a very bad condition, A terrible burningpain was always
Eresent, and I suffered terribly from lum-
ago and pain in the small of my back,
together with otlier painful and distressing
symptoms, common In kidney complaints.
I could not sleep, and suffered much from
salt rheum.
"When I first commenced taking Doan's
Kidney Pills I had little or no faith in them,
but I thought I would try them) and It
proved the nest experiment I ever made,
I had only taken two boxes when the pain
left my back entirely. Three boxes mora,
or five In all, made a complete cure.
"After 25 years'of suffering from kidney
disease I am now healthy and strong again,
and will be pleased to substantiate what I
have said, ahould anyone wish to enquire.'1
