The new round house at Field is one
ot the best on the road. It has accommodation (or eight engines. The pits
are being sunk and W. Fraser's bridge
gang are busy with the laying ot the
root which is ot iron. The now round
house covers a ground .pace of 72 teet
by 230 feet. The stone for the construe,
tion ot the building came from the
Calgary quarry, and fiom the quarry
at Hector. The m-clms ot tbe engine
stalls are splendidly finished, and the
whole building reflects great credit on
Mr. Muuro, who was in charge of the
work. The wall is built on the west-
era end so that an addition can be made
from that end without the erection et
another inner retaining wall. The
building will be completed in about ��
fortnight. The building will bo heat-
od by steampipea from the boiler now
in use for euppliiiR the steam for the
Donald shops. The new round house
will bo provided with a plant for tern
porary repairs and will probably be in
oharge ot Mr. Inches. Amongst the
improved equipments to be put in
Field will be a drop-pit by which the
wheels may be taken oft au engine and
new ones put on without raising tbe
engine at all, the pit being provided
with moveable rails. Further improvements will be carried out at Field next
year. The permanent way and trucks
-both at Field and Laggan are now in

changes, Messrs Erickson and Killien

" With regard to the Kicking Horse

Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works for thia Province to approach
tho Dominion Government, stating
what the Provincial Government are
prepared to do. I could then go and
see the Minister of Public Works and
urge the matter on his attention. Ot
course yon know he has at the present
time no appropriation for this work

Easily Unreal*.Tii. Ite.ult of Sclentl-
From The Advance, Kemptville, Out.
There is a popular idea that rheumatism is caused by exposure to cold, and
that some localities are infected with
it more than others. Scientists say
that such conditions frequently pro
mole disease, but from than fact that
this ailmeiitjruns in certain families, it
is shown to bo hereditary, and consequently a disease of the blood.
Frequently an individual in whose
fapiily rheumatism hue not occurred
develops the disease, and when a dlu-i
uosia of tlio case is made, it is generally found that the ailment is due to a
derangement of the blood.
Ouo.juch suffeier who ha<. been cured is Capt, D. W. Becket, who lives in
the "township of Oxford, Greuville
County Capt. Becket is the owner of
21b acres and lives in a beautiful farm
borne ou the banks of the Hideau, some
three miles from Kemptville. Iu addition to being n thrifty farmer, Mr. Becket has taken an enthusiastic interest
iu our volunteer forco and has graduated from the military college at Torouto
with a first class certificate, which entitles him tothenink of Major, To a
reporter of tho Kemptville Advance,
Capt. Becket made the following state
men!: ��� "Four years ago I was taken
suddenly with rheumatism in both by
elbows and high join's. The pain at
times was something terrible. I took
medicine and doctored tor over six
months, but continued to grow worse
and worse. My arms from the elbow
joints to the tips of the fingers became
numbed and had a prickly sensation,
and I was unable to do any work; in
fact I could not lift my hand to my
head. The pain I suffered in my lips
was also almost unbearable andjmy
legs wero nearly as useless as my
arms. I bad frequently read testimonials where Dr, "Williams' Pink
Pills had cured this disease, and at last
I thought I would try them as an experiment. Before I had completed the
first box I felt they were helping me,
and after I had taken the pills a little
more than a month, the pain bad entirely left ine. and I felt ait altogether
different man. I feel satisfied there is
no other medicine could have wrought
such n speedy cure, nnd I can truthfully say I met the enemy and defeated
him through the aid of Dr, Williams'
Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills aro a specific
for all disease sarising from an impoverished condition of the blood d*r a
shattered condition of the nervous
forces, such as St. Vitus dance, locomotor ataxia, rheumatism, paralysis,
sciatica, the after effects of la grippe,
loss of appetite, headache, dizziness,
chronic erysipelas, scrofula, etc. They
are also a specific for the troubles
peculiar to the female system, correcting irrogularites, suppressions and all
forms of female weakness, building
anew the blood and restoring the glow
ot health to pale and sallow cheeks
In the ease of men they effect a radical
cure in all cases arising from mental
worry, overwork or excess of any
Protect yourself against imi-ations
by insisting that every box you pur
chase bears the full name Dr Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People.
The owners of the Sullivan group
say they have a vein of 60 feet wide of
solid ore.
W. Logan and J. Dolmnge report
that the assessment work which they
have done on their properties on Irvine Butte has given a tine showing.
D. McDougal and J. White have
driven a tunnel 50 f.-at in length on
the new copper discovery at Spruee
Mountain, in which i hey are interested
withW. 0. Mitchell-Innes. They have
cut five feet into the lead and found it
mineralized as far aa they went but
they have not yet cut through the lead.
The prospect is a very promising   one.
Says the Mining and Scientific
Press: "The latest 'mining boom' ia
in copper and commercial events justify activity in copper mining. I. is
constantly appreciating in demand
and consequently in value. Michigan
Montana, Arizona and Colorado an
profitably mining copper, and renewed
activity is rt ported along tho copper
belt of California."

Considerable enquiry is at present
being made as to the mineral and
other resources north ol the country
north of Gulden and Donald. Th��
only definite information we aro at
present at liberty to publish is what
was gleaneil from Messrs. Price and
F.vans when they wero recently in
Golden getting their supplies". Thoso
gentlemen put ill the last winter in
that country and describe It as tn
excellent place to winter in, with comparatively little snow, nnd a clima e
free from exceptional severity. Hy
putting up hay in the fall they wen-
able to winter their horses well. Last
spring they went east of Canoe rivir
as far as the Fraser River Basiu, ai d
met with such encouraging proepecti
in the skapo of placer finds that they
arranged to outfit for two years and
sent to Golden for their supplies, taking in tho largest and most coinple-n
outfit that had up to tbat time been
taken from Golden for the north. The
main difficulty of access to this northern route lies in the section from
Donald to the mouth of Canoe river,
where the trail is boggy in placee,
nnd the swift swollen streams are
difficult to cross with safety in the
spring. The Government should take
steps lo place this trail in hotter shape
and provide ferries at the worst rivers,
such us Bush river.
From a point 85 miles north of
Golden the travel is excellent, a wide
open valley being entered, over almost
any portion of which a wugou can be
driven as on a prairie. A water route
can be got almost the whole of the
way into the far north. The route
lies up tbe Columbia and Canoe Rivers to a point opposite Tete Jaune
Cache, and a stream from a lake,
which empties into both the Canoe
and Fraser Rivers, enables a boat to
be taken to the Fraser. Alon-r the
Froser a branch called Barker River
strikes north and a boat can
be taken along this tributary of the
Fraser to within half a mile of the
Parsnip River, which is the heed
waters of the Peace River. Once there
the traveller is in the great gold country of the Omenica and Findlay, aad
with the usual portages over rapide be
can wend his way at comparative ease
among rivers and streams innumerable,
all carrying sands of gold, and waiting tbe shovel and pan of the prospector to reveal their wealth���as great,
there is every reason to believe, aa the
Klondike. With the construction of
tbe railway from the International
boundary to tiie far ncrth Golden wial
be the key to this great country of tl e
north, where there are oppa rtunitki
innumerable for the lumberman, the
rancher, and the miner, as the country
is opened up. As showing the favorable nature of the northern country,
we are informed that the Indians wintered 80 horses last year, iu the valley between the Fraser and Canoe
Rivers, without even providing hay.

The Provincial Legislature is summoned to meet at. Victoria on alaniiary
5th. The Sainlin Government aro
thus meeting Parliament much earlier
than the Turner Government has been
in tho habit of doing. Ono of tho
first acts of tho now government will
bo to take steps to test its strength,
and if it does not command a working
majority in tbo House there will bo
another election. During their short
term of office tho Semlin Government
have given an excellent ucoount of
themselves, having effected consider
able economies iu the public service,
while no legitimate requirement of tiie
Province has been allowed to suffer.
There is no doubt lhat if the new -.ov-
ernment huve to go to tbe .country
again they will be supported by the
people by a marked majority. The
fact tliat the Semlin Government have
determined to do away with the rotten
boroughs of the Turner regime and
givo the people of lhe Province a fair
and equitable representation will alone
go far to secure for thorn u prolonged
lease of power. Dunsmuirisiu is already broken, and we shall no longer
have th'e edifying spectacle of the Turner Government making laws nod
setting up one of its number, in tiie
shaji3 of Mr. Pooley, to break them in
tho interest of the Dunsmuirs, who
havo now intimated that they are
going ti? comply with tho law. With
the Hon. Joseph Martin after them
they have evidently considered discretion the better part of valor r.nd announced that they will discharge the
Chinese miners whom they havo so
long retained against the law. "Much
has also been done in clearing up the
monopolies and abuses which had
obtained all over tlteprovince during
tlio Tumor regime.

Thero havo been several cases of typhoid fever at Field, a townsite that
should be one of tho healthiest in tbe
Province. As I ho population is rapial-
ly increasing there, wu suggest that
steps bo taken tu improve tho sanitation of tho town first, thin,; in the
spring. Probably the best and most
effective system of cleansing tho town
und keeping it clean will be hy the
construction of a ditch along the
boundary between the 0. P. R. and
the Government laud, nnd the diversion through this ditch of tho creek
thnt flows behind the Mount Stephen
House. Although a sanitation work
of this kind is one that should bo undertaken by tho Provincial Government, no doubt the C.P.R. wuuhl
co-operate with thorn in carrying out
tho requirements.

November Dyeing.
Success, Profit and Pleasure
When Diamond Dyes
Are Used.
Thousanda of city and country
women and girls will dye during the
month of November. Old drosses,
costumes, capes,jackets,wraps, shawls,
and clothing for men and br.ys will bo
brought from attics, closets aud boxes,
and prepared for the dye bath.
It is safe to assert that every wife,
moth, r and daughter who has heard
of ihe wonder-working Diamond D.ves
will use them in preference to any
other mako of dyes,
It ia unnecessary to dilate upon the
many grand results tbat users of Dia*
mond Dyes obtain, A. few words will
tell the story. Tho Diamond Dyes
will make the old things look as fresh
and us good as new, and will give
colors that sun or washing cauuor,
fade. The unfortunate women who
are induced by some doalers to.buy
imitation and adulterated dyos will
certainly suffer loss of money, time
and materials.
There is profit in home dyeing only
when the Diamond Dyes are used.
Hee that you got lhe " Diamond" from
your dealer; refuse all imitations.   577

Paine's Celery Compound the Only Medicine
that can cope With the Dread Visitor.
The old enemy grippe ia now prevalent in many sections ot the land, and,
as in the past, it is the same old insidious Ibe -cruel and deadly.
The Ute eminent English phytician,
Sir Morell MacKensii, held that grippe
was the result of "poisoned nerves."
Sir Morrcll compares it to an extraordinary disturbance in the telegraphic
system produced hy a thunderstorm,
which is no'.hing compared with the
frisks pl.tyed hy th* living conductors
in ihe human body whin the governing centres are out of gear.
It ia certain lhat the majority of
medioal men now agree about the
theory of "poisoned nerves," which
explains the almost infinite variety of
the attacks that mark the disease.
Tbe profound impression made on the
nervous system by the poison explaina
all tbe after effects of the malady, aud
more especially that curious loss of
vital energy experienced by victims of
In past seasons, when grippe was
epidemic, tho ablest and most thoughtful doctors prescribe!' Paine's Celery
Compound, a medicine that acts directly on the aerves ol the body, cleansing
them from all deadly poisons, toning
and bracing up the entire system. In
this way. fre.li vitality is quickly be
���towed and sound health restored.
The mysterious visitor grippe may
pass many of us this autumn and winter; we have, however, no guarantee
that we shall bo spared, so that it bo-
hooves all to be | ropared for the arch
To those who are run down, weary,
tired, sleepless, nervous, who have
periodical headache and debility we
say, "Use Paine's Celery Compound to
fortify the system for all emergencies."
Physically Birong men and women are
not readily attacked br disease; the
half-well and weakly mortals are the
first vic'ims. At this time precaution and prevention nro all-important;
the b nLhtnetit of nervousness, sleeplessness, liinguidncss, debility and
headache should bo first thoughts wilh
old ami young.
To safely guard against gripi.o nnd
all other common diseases, Paine's
Celery Compound is the ono effective
medicine-tho only sure preventive of
Do not bo misled by dealers who attempt, for ihe sake of large profits, to
substitute something they call just as
giod; where health is concerned there
is no other medicine that can take the
placeof Paine's Celery Compound and

anxiously desiring a new life.      578

There inijht lie good ground for

The Colonist will not assail Mr.

It is uo sin for Mr. llustock io have

��� serve them, or is it a crime for Mr.
Hostook to use his money iu email-
liehing newspapers to promote his
ambition? It is'to his credit that he
has shown no desire to enrich himself
at tbe country's expense. Canada haa
too few rich meu who e k to get into

people to betray public wealth into

British Colombia journalism has
been bettered by the creation of papers
which an meant to serve the ambitions of Mr. Bostock. It has been
good for British Columbia, and for
Cauada generally, that a man should

St. Cunogonde, P.Q., Nov. 7.���Tl.e
case of Mrs. Ellen Dowson, of Gerrsrd
St., Toronto, has a parallel in this
place. Dodd's Kidney Pills havo
brought happiness into a stricken
home, by restoring a beloved daughter
to health and strength.
Mr. P. Dubois, who resides at No.

the story in these words: "Por many
months my daughter endured the
agonies of -'Femalo Weakness" and
Kidney Disease, No remedy we used
gave her the least relief, and she be
came so ill, finally, that she was
obliged to remain at home from school
for fully three-quarters of the lime.
"By a friend's advice, I bought a
box of Dodd's Kidney Pills for her, and
was delighted to see that sho began io
get better almost immtdiatoly after
beginning to use ihem.
"She has taken in all four boxes,
and is today in better health than she
ever enjoyed in ber lifo before. She is
t'rong and healthy uud goes to school
every day.
"I cheerfully certify to the wonderfully beneficial effect of Dodal's Kidney
Pills in cases of Female Trouble-, for
besides my daughter's euro, I know of
a number of instances iu'which they
have completely cured the sufferers."
Women who sulferd from any of
the diseases peculiar to their sex, can
find no other remudy that will relievo
their sufferings and permanently curo
their complaints so quickly and thoroughly as Dodd's Kidney Pills. The
testimony of thousands of women who
have been cured proves this beyond
