She was, therefore, free to follow her

in the company of James Claymore.
Tho more she know him, and familiarized herself with his habits, though ohe

of these would help htm for a time,
but very soon the pain would return

At last someone suggested that

medicines that he had very little

She Wh Lffl Wtak and Run Down, nnd
Unable to Br gal u Her Strength Until
She Used Dr. Williams' Pluk Fills.
In the village of Cumpdcn, Ont.,
and throughout, the surrounding
country, there are few people better
known or more highly esteemed than
Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Albright. Mr.
Albright has for many years filled tho
position of village postmaster, in addition to conducting a boot and shoo
business. Uut it is with tho postmaster's estimable wife that this article has chlelly to do, as it gives,
practically in hor own words, tho
particulars of her recovery from a
severe Illness through the use of Dr.
Williams' Tink Pills. To a reporter
who asked Mrs. Albright if sho would
consent to givo tho particulars of her
illness and euro for publication, she
said : "Jf you think my experience
will help soma other milTcror I am
quite willing to givo it, for I may
toll you that I am a very enthusiastic admirer of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for somo years prior to tho
winter of 1.81)8 I suffered with a lnme
back, which frequently prevented mo
from doing my household work.
Later exposure to cold developed
sciatica, and every movement of tho
body caused intense pain. In this
way passed gloomy days and restless
nights, until the winter of 1.808,
when my trouble was aggravated by
an uttack of la grippe. The lirst and
most severe symptoms of this trouble
passed away, but it left mo in a
weak and depressed condition. I did
not appear to bo able to recover my
strength; my appetite was very fickle;
I wns extremely nervous, and my
heart would palpitate painfully at
tbe least exertion. I had beon under
a doctor's care, but did not recover
my strongth, and as a consequence J
was much depressed in spirits, At
this juncture a friend who called upon 1110 adviBcd me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and 1 decided to
follow the advice, and procured a
supply. To my gratification I folt uu
improvement in my condition almosU
from lho outset, and after using the
pills for a little over a month I wns
qnco more enjoying the best uf
health, every trace of the trouble
that had alllicted ma having disappeared. It is nearly three years since
I used tho pills and I have been well
and strong over since, and I have the
best of reasons for ascribing my present good health to the use of Dr.Williams' Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a Ionic
and not a purgative medicine. They
enrich the blood from the first cloS-i
fo the last and thus bring health ami
strength to every organ of the body.
The genuine pills aro sold only In
boxes with the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People/,''
printed on the wrapper. If your denier cannot supply you send direct to
the Dr,Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont., and the pills will be mailed post paid at 50 cents a tux, or
six boxes for $2.50.

Hunter und Hi* Firm Grla/ly.
In "Sketelk's of Life lu tbe Golden
State" Colonel Albert S. Evans tells an
amusing anecdote of an nmliltious
hunter who met hi*-, first grizzly bear���
In procession, 'i be Incident occurred
In the woods near'the site of the present town of Monterey.
The hunter sat dowu to rest In tbe
shade of a tree and unwittingly went
to sleep. When he woke, it was near
sunset, and he sat up, rubbing bis eyes
and contemplating 11 re turn to bis hotel
several miles distant.
Just then a rustling nud cracking
noise from a clump of chaparral about
100 yards nway attracted bis attention.
Out walked a grizzly bear, a monarch
of bis kind. He yawned, licked his
Jaws and tben advanced toward the
tree where our hunter sat, hnt evidently was unconscious of his presence.
Ills grizzly majesty had proceeded
nhout 20 paves when a female hear followed him. and an Instant Inter a third
grizzly followed her nt a Blow, shambling pace.
The hunter sat spellbound with terror as the procession came toward lilm
until tbe forward grizzly was within
SO yards. Then, scarcely realizing
what he did, he sprang to his feet and
uttered a frenzied yell���yell upon yell!
The effect was magical. The foremost hear sprang Into tlio air. turned
sharply about, knocked the female
down, rolled over her, gathered himself
up and hotted "like 40 cartloads of
rock going down n shoot." straight for
tlie chaparral again, llie other two
hears close at tils heels ami never turning to see what hail frightened them.
The hunter, seeing the enemy 'retreating, sprang tn his feet and tied at
lop speed for the hotel, leaving lint and
guikbehlnd. The truth of his wild and
startling tale was proved the next day
hy the numerous hear tin cits of differ
ent sizes found in the marshy ground
nearby. Itut the three hears had gone
off beyond pursuit

There's n good story told on n young
fellow here noted for his closeness. He
went to spend the night with n friend.
During the entire night he betrayed
much restlessness, which kept lhe host
wide awake, nnd Ilmilly the slumberer
betrayed signs of violent emotion.
"He's going to have n nightmare." snld
the friend, "but he always grumbles so
when you wake him np tlmt 1 hate to
disturb him.1" Ue walled awhile longer, sitting lip In bed staring on tlie
miserable sleeper, mid dually, becoming alarmed, he roused him- He sprang
up In bed. glared wildly nround and
snld: "Where um IV I don't see the
"Why. here In my room." said tlie
host soothingly. "You remember you
staid nil night wltll me? 1 beg your
pardon for waking you up, but you carried on so I had to."
"Beg your pardon," gasped the guest.
"I shall never be grateful enough to
you. I dreamed 1 was out with Miss
Bud. and n terrible storm came up, and
my shoes were hew. and I was just
ordering a coupe for two when you
roused me. Old liny, you hnve saved

The Outcrop baa a very floe specimen
of copper glance ore from the Bugaboo
grcup, situated about 18 miles from
-olumbia river up Bugaboo oreek. Tbe
owners, Messrs. Haines, MoKeeman,
Hutchison and Ford, have already
accomplished considerable work on the-
property. The led_e from which tbis
ore comes is mineralised for eight feet
and has been traced across three claimi*,
the Sunrise, Sunset and Copper Q ireu.
They have started a tunnel and at tbe
depth of -ix foot had two feet eight
inches of this ore, from which an
average assay gave returns uf 35 per
cent oopper. The owners report that
quite a number of mining men have
visited thegroupand nilareunnminons
In espre-asing their opinion that it has
the greatest copper showing of auy
claim In the camp.
Tbe Garland mineral claim, situated
on Spring croek, at the head of Paradise Alley, Is owned by 8. Young, of
Canterbury, and E. A. Mahon, of Montreal. Fur tbe amount of work that
has been dono on the claim they have
a good showing. There are two par
allel leads on the property; No. 1 load
can he traced for 600 feet and is six
ieet wide, aud No. 2 lead, which is
about 150 feet sonthwe.it from No, 1.
oan be traced for 8<>0 feet and Is about
10 feet wide. The ore Is tbe same as
tho sand carbonates found on the Para*
Use, from wbich assays have heen
obtained ranging in silver as follows,
2, 25, 72 aud 48? ounces, The work
lone on the property last soason consisted of a crosscut tunnel and stripping
tho lead. Ie is said to be a very
promising claim and work will be
continued on it early in the spring.
