The Revelstoke Herald remarks :���
"W. C Wells, M.P.P., for Northsast
Kootenay, is busy working for the
interests of his oonstitusnts. He is
mra-inR the government, to dear out the
Moberly trail between Oolden and
Canoe liver and to oi.cn It through to
Tete Jaune Cache."
Mr. Bosteok, M.P., has done yeoman service for hit constituency in
regard to C.P.R. townsites, and as a
recult of hie representations it is now
propossd that the Government, and
not the railway company, shall fix the
station sites. This will be a boon to
the country in slopping the booming
of rotten railway townsites to the dis
advantage of those already established
Mr. Davin has introduced a bill in
the House ef Commons to extend the
nse of air brakes on freight trains and
to provide additional safety-guards
against accident to employes. It is
also provided that employes injured in
the discharge of their duties shall be
entitled from the company to corapen
satien at the rate of 60 per cent of
their former earnings for such time as
they may hs disabled, For permanent
disablement the employe is to receive
not less than four years wages and if
killed his family is to receive not less
than 13000.
We congratulate Mr. W. C. Wells,
M.P.P., on the success of his visit to
the Coast and the thorough attention
that he appears to have given the requirements of the district. The Idler
from him in another column relates
only to the matters brought under his
attention hy the Oolden Board ol

put in hand before now. The proposed
design of the bridge has, however.been
seut to the Marine Department, at Ottawa, for approval, and Mr. Wells
witli Mr. Gamble will probably vicit
Windermere next week with a view to
having the work put in hand as soon
as possible.

EDMONTON   ROUTE   TO   TETE
JAUNE CACHE.
What the Dominion Government
Geologist says of It.���An almost Impassable Route.
'-The characteristics of the route are,
thick small timber, the greater part of
whioh has been killed by fire, and
windfall, frequent bog-holes and deep
stioky mud with several bad muskegs,
As few persons who travel 'his way
ever out a stick if they oan get around
or jump over it, It oan readily be understood that, espeoially in a wet season, the so-called trail is all but impassable. The old trail made in
connection with the government railway explorations of 1874-76, is still
distinguishable in places but is of
little service. The corduroy laid down
at that time aoross the muskegs and
swamps is now in such a bad atate of
preservation as to be unsafe fur
animals."

Oh Frl
on left (
riday the first party of the si
son left Golden for Tete Jaune Cache
and other parties will follow rapidly,
The party oonsisted of Malcolm Mo
Donald and mate, who built a boat at
Golden, and, with their supplies,
started to take the Columbia river to
the Big Bend, and go thence by Canne
river, by which means they would get
to within 20 miles of Tete Jaune Caobe
all the way from Golden by water.
The unfavorable news from tbe
Cache has not prevented the influx of
people that will go in there. Many
people wont believe the story we published as te the unsatisfactory results
obiniiied. and argue that if it wero no
Itood Price and his friends would not
want to get back there so soon. Thi)
also point, out that it is well-known
that placer gold exists in more or less
quantities all the way atom.' the great
western valley ol the Rockies from
Gul en to ihe far north, and that even
if Swift Current is no good there are
thousands of localities in this valley
yet unprospected, in many parts of
which payable gold is almost tie tnln
to be found, and they point to the
facts of Manson creek, Nation river,
Omenica, Peace, Parsnip and Findlay
rivers, all connected with this basin,
in all of which payable gold hus been
found in confirmation.
People therefore continue to arrange
for their projected expeditions to the
north and continue to outfit at Golden
and get their psi-k trslhs in readiness
for the trip. The next fortnight will
see 50 men and 100 herses loaded with
supplies on I heir way to tbe north.
The Government have bought two
boats built by F. Bsrthuims for use at
the Golden k Fort Steele Development
'Vimpaiiy'�� property at Kinbaskei
Lake. ��"d these bonts will be pu! on
Bush River for the transportation of
the supplies of travellers from Golden
to the north.
A Combination of evils
Bring on that Spring
Trouble Known as
"Tired Feelings."
Paine's Celery Compound Does
A Wondrou Work for Every
Rundown   Man    and
Woman.
"Tired feelings I" Those two words
cover a multitude of dangers and
perils, and should, when fully comprehended, be taken as serious warnings.
"Tired Feelings" result from a vitiated and deranged condition of the blood
and nerves, which causes a gsneral
weakness of the entire system. Constipation is usually one of the dominant
troubles; digestive vigor is lacking,
appetite ie poor and sleep is never refreshing.
To banish "tired feelings" the blond
must bs caleansed and purffied.and tbe
nerves toned and braced.
This foundation work is easily and
quickly accomplished by using Paine's
Celery Compound, the worlds famous
. ring medicine. This noted reinedy,
purely vegetable, pleasant to the tests,
is in every oase just what is claimed
for it. ltistheone spring medicine
that our best physicians vouch for;
it,is the great health restoer and
strength giver tbat the best people of
Canada talk about in the home ai.d on
the street.
A few bottles of Paine's Celery Compound used during the month nf May,
will banish all the troubles that regularly contribute to "Tired feelings"
and ill health, If you are nervous,
sleepless, have indigestion, dyspepsia,
neuralgia, heart trouble, kidney or
liver affections, your doctor or druggist will, if asked, promptly advised
the using of Paines Celery   Compeud.

���South Auie.iia.il Kidney Cure Snapped

A young man, a son of one of Canada's
wealthiest citizens, two years ago contracted
kidney disease by taking a cold plunge in
the lake when the body was overheated.
Speciali. . could diagnose but could uot euro
the malady, and when half the globe bad
beeu travelled in hope of help and a cure be
returned to his home apparently with but a
short time to live, but the printed testimony
of the cure of a scbool-boy day acquaintance
attracted him io South American Kidney
Cure, . He procured it and persisted in its
use, and although it was a stubborn case, today he is well and healthy.

E. A. Hag-oem, Esq.,
Golden, B.C.
Dear Sir,���Before leaving (or Vic-
tonal .,'U'iii'il your communication
referrrittg to ilie action of the Golden
Board of Trade recommending certain
appropriations from the legislative
���train for the ensuing year. I took
occasion to submit the suggestions
conveyed to me while at Victoria,
urging upon the attention of the Gov*
.'rumour, what I considered warranted
���nv iici ion in doing so. It. must be
���orue in n ind that the appropriations
olrendy ramie for roads, trails and
bridges cannot be exceeded this year
unless possibly under the "Toll Roads
Act," and for an appropriation under
this there would need to be the strong-
est possible assurance of an output
sufficient to warrant the expenditure.
First in regard :o the McMurdo district road. I have the assurance thai
this would be liberally assisted in conjunction with some company largely
interested in rhe construction of such
a road and it is my opinion that the
Board of Trade should submit a proposition lo the Bennison Company, for
carrying out this project,
i The otliot- evpsuli'inros ss recommended for trails and road repairs can
be largely provided fur out of this
year's grant and tbe necessary instructions will be given at once b) the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works.
The river front improvements at
Golden I am assured would be carried
out jointly wiih th* Dominion Government and I would urge that Mr.
Bosiock bo asked o secure before tlie
su|ipl-.niQiiturv estimates are brought
town, tln> necessary appropriation for
the purpose. This work, however,
will, I ii-s i ii?. Ii-n-e tn b'> iHerivd
now until next fall, and I may say
that the Chief Commissioner and Mr.
Gamble nre stroiigli in fa-nr of the
improvements beiinr extended eventually to the mouth of the Kicking
Horse.
Strenuous efforts have been made to
oonncct the Tete Jai.no Csr.be district
with other constituencies by road expenditures, but the Government fully
appreciates that we ha-.-e the only
available route and there will be no
appropriation other than w*har will
make Golden directly tributary to the
new gold fields.
So soon as sufficient information is
obtained I am assured that provision
will be made io meet exigencies iuci
dents.) totbeopeningnpof this district
Arrangements aro now in prog-res
for the removal of the public buildliltc
to Golden, anil I inn authorized to ol>
tain for the Department an estimate of
the cost which must be necessarily
incurred,
Following this a permanent con*
stable will be appointed win. ie io h , e
charge of the new jail ccomniodatio"
as well.
I made a strong plea for an assistant
teacher to the Golden school and additional accommodation. This I am
now promised immediately upon the
school resuming after the summer
vacation.
During my stav at Victoria it was
arrangsd that ths Hon, Mr. Carter-
Cotton, Chief Commissioner, should
visit the constituency early in October,
and an opportunity will then be afforded to discuss more fully all matters
pertaining to the further development
and progress ef North East Kootenay.
Regular sittings of a Small Debts
Court will be provided for at Goldsn
and presided over by two magistrates
appointed from the new commission of
the peace about to be issued. I am,
Yonrs truly,

MINING IN BRITISH
COLUMBIA.
ANNUAL REPORT OF MINISTER
OF MINES.
The annual report ef th* Ministsr ���(
Mines is to band, reviewing the tper-
ationa of the past year. The report is
exceedingly well compiled and got up,
and ws congratulate the Provincial
Mineralogist, Mr. W. F. Robertson, on
tke care and research displayed by hia
in his first compilation since assuming
office, Tbe illustrations are a fin*
feature of the publication, and seme of
the photographs taken by Mr. Robertson in this district last year are th*
finest that have yet been publishsd in
the Province. It will be remembered
that Mr. Rnlienson spent most of last
season in East Kootenay and a large
portion of the report Is taken up with
his description of the mining camps of
the district visited by him. This portion of rsport is disappointing, as
might have been expected from the
limited nature of tbe development
work.
Mr. Robertson is undoubtedly moat
conscientious and painstaking in the
discharge of his official duties, and we
can understand that, with the limited
devdopment with which he had to
deal, he was often placed at such disadvantage that it was impossibls t*
form a satisfactory estimate of a property, especially where it was in th*
location, stage, as many of these properties which he visited were found to
be. Probably, too, Mr. Robertson bad
to depend in aome cases on information which was notes reliable aa it
might have been. For instsnee he
states there is no mineral visible on the
Favorite claim in the International
Basin, whertaS there is on that claim
one of tbe finest lsads in th* country���
a lead that is known as tbe Bennison
lead, on the property ef the Kootenay
Consolidated Company, on the other
side of the mountain. Assays running
from $10 to $600 havs been obtained
from the exposures of this lead on th*
Favorite claim, so that this official
report is most damnatory to this property without just cause, and either
from oversight or bad information���
probably the latter, as, ii we recollect
aright, the ground was covered with
���uow when Mr. Robertson visited th*
property, so that he was probably tan-
able to see it hat the exposures were.
It is a matter cf regret that Mr. Robertson had not seen the Bennison property, or the Vermont creek property,
on both of which a large amount of
development work has been done.
Among ihe photographs of local
interest attached to the report ar*
views on thi- Columbia at McMurdo

The Certainty Gold and Mining
Company has been formed in   Quebec,
ith a capital ol stock of $1.&00,000.
This Company have taken over tb*
Certainty group on Fifteen Mile Creek,
purchased last season by T. A. Knowlton Irnni John Henderson, and may
probably operate also tbe Porphyry
and Iron Hill copper claims on Canyon Creek, and the Bluewater property
which ia at present under bond to Mr.
Knowlton. E. A.Haggen, who examined and reported on the property last
fall, and on whose reports it
has been taken up, has received instructions to open trail and put
in hand development work on th*
Certainty at once nnd the work will be
placed in charge of Jas Noble, Th*
Certainty carries geld and copper ore*
and is located on the North Fork of 16
Mile Creek. A complete rang* of
assays made by E. A. Haggen showed
th* ore to run over $30 a ton, whil*
samples selected by Mr Knowlton and
assayed at Montreal, ran from l&O to
$80 a ton.

PACIFIC CABLE.
Parliamentary Paper Issued Containing
Corre.pondence Regarding Xt.
London, May S.���A parliamentary
paper containing correspondence regarding the proposed Pacific cable was
issued tonight. Embodied in the paper
is the statement mado by Mr. Joseph
Ohumuorluiu in the hosse of commons
on April 28, to the effect that the British government had made proposals to
the governments of Canada and Australia on the subject of tbe proposed cable,
bnt tbat no dual arrangements had
been made.
To this is added tbe statement that
the government of Urent Britain has
always considered that tho construction
of n cable is of far greater importance
to Australasia nnd Canada thou to the
United Kingdom, and that tho government wonld not be disposed to recommend that parliament vote in aid of tho
project, bnt for the desiro to uttord the
support and assistance of the motherland to tbe great self-governing colonies
in a projeot the success of which
cannot fail to promote imperial unity.
For this reason the government considers that the responsibility of construction and operating the cable should be
borne by Canada and the Australasian
colonies, they taking the profits and the
United Kingdom giving an nununl subsidy not exceeding ���20,000 for a period
uot exceeding twen'y years, the exact
subsidy being live-eighteenths of the
shortage of receipts below expenses nud
provide ibat the subsidy be payable
only after Canada and the Australasian
colonies shall have completed the cable
and opened it for traflic, and only while
the cable shall reniii-n opeu
Other provisions of the proposed
agreement necessitate that priority ut
given to imperial government message*,
at one half the commercial rates und
imperial approval of the construction
and operation of the cable-.

FROM THE ORIENT
EMPRESS  DOWAGER TO REVIEW
2,000,000 CHINESE SOLDIERS.
He Saw Pare and Holden.
Toronto, May 4.���There is some bus
picion that Pare and Holden were in
Toronto on Tuesday and the police are
looking into tbe story, bnt as similar
rumors como from a dozen points probably there is nothing in it.
The story is based on the fact that a
blacksmith named McKelvey, living in
a northwestern suburb saw two men
whom he says resembled the escaped
prisoners on Tuesday afternoon and tbey
borrowed a tin oan from him to get a
drink at a neighboring tavern. They
did not return the can at the time, but
yesterday morning McKelvey found his
can inside his shop, the lock of the
door having been picked to enable them
to do this. The story is sufficiently
ludicrous, but it shows tbe estimation
in which Fare's abilities as a locksmith
are held.
C. P. R. Stock.
Montreal, May B.���The rise in Canadian Pacific stock makes a glance at
its record interesting. Tho dividend
record of the O. .P R. common stock
has been a checkered ono, and has run
all the way from 5 per cent per annum
to nothing at all. The first year of
tne 6 per  cent, dividend was in 1884,

The Demands of Russia.
Vancouver, May 5.���Recent Chinese
advices received here say that the Dowager Empress is to hold a grand review
in Pekin in June. Nearly 3,000,000
well armed men will be under arms on
tbe occasion. It.is more than likely
tbat an opportunity will be taken to
pn cl iim the new emperor at the celebration.
Tbe delimitation of territory leased
by tbe Russians in Manchuria and
the Mao-Tung peninsula is 'not yet
completed as the demands of the Russians have a tendeoy to grow.
Admiral Dewey has been showing
the Frenoh bow to behave. Manila
papers say that when the Frenoh cruiser Jean Bart came in she gave Admiral Dewey the rear admiral's salute.
The admiral ordered the salute to be
returned exaolty as given and then on
officer on board to call their attention
to the new pennant, whioh seems tto
have escaped tbeir notice.
The rebellion in Formosa is not yet
at an end. Tbe oause whiob seems
to be bringing this storm to a bead is
the intolerable taxes which a re said to
be imposed on tbe people. Tbe worst
of it is these taxes are too muoh in tbe
hands of Ohinese underlings wbo seize
the opportunity of punishing their
enemies and rewarding tbeir friends
for a consideration, Hence tbere is a
vast amount of injustice administered
abont which tbe autboirties know
nothing.
The Japanese punitive expedition is
still in South Formosa, putting down
the rebellion. Hong Kong papers Bay
that, ns usual, a comparatively small
number  of real banditti  were killed.
Those who buffered most were the re-
speotable pleasants, who have made

Yonng chickens and other birds frequently break the bones of their legs,
and if properly attended to these fractures can he easily enred with very little trouble As soon us the injury is
noticed the fracture must be carefully
cleuu'd and washed with worm water
und then wrapped with a bit of antiseptic cotton. Splints are then prepared
for the fractured limb, preferably of
split elder wood, the pith of which is
taken out These splints ure fustened
to the cotton with n drop of glue, and
held tightly in place by being wound
with linen thread. The bandnge and
dressing nre left undisturbed for from
tbree to four weeks, then the leg is
soaked in tepid water nntil the bandage
comes off easily The fracture will have
completely honied in that time.
Canaries und other pet birds can be
similarly treated in case ot a fracture
of a leg. only the elder splints nie substituted by pieces of cardboard and the

matters of common knowledge in the
Egypt of Rameses the Great. But the
Parisian police now affirm that a nev**
departure has been mude on tbe banks
of the Seine. And this is how it was
worked:
An office wus hired in 11 good business street by the inventor of the trick,
who uasamed the title of somebody and
company, chemical agents. Being convinced advocates ot* women's rights,
tbey employed Bonie members of the
fair sex, who dressed in the height of
fashion, nsed the most fashionable perfumes and then visited singly the best
npothecaries' shop. One of these fair,
false emissaries would stop her cab at
the chemists, eoine in uud, taking ont
her purse, ask for another bottle of Dr
Beaumont's elixir. "Dr. Beaumont's
what'/" said tlm yonng man behind the
counter. "The elixir. Don't yon know?'
"No; I am afraid I never beard of it.'
"Oh, how tiresome, und my poor rheumatic husband will bo so disuppointedl
Are yon sure it was not here that our
servant bought it before?" "No, ma-
dame; it was not here. Where is it sold
wholesale?" "It is sold wholesale, I
think"��� And here the lady showed tho
ticket on the bottle.  "It costs 8 francs."
That same day the chemist bought
the elixir wholesale, laying in it fair
stock of it, and meanwhile many of the
confreres were doing likewise. But, as
nobody called any more on the obliging
chemists to bny the elixir, one of the
curious confraternity analyzed this
specific which was supposed to relieve
rheumatics. He found thut it was at
least perfectly harmless, consisting of
water colored by coffee grounds. The
police were then let loose upen the ladies and the chemical agents, but they
had all moved on, leaving no nddreBs
They are said to havo netted about 10,*
000 francs by the trick.���London Telo-

PACIFIC CABLE.
Parliamentary Paper Issued Containing
Correspondence Regarding It.
London, May 5.���A parliamentary
paper containing correspondence re-
(jnriliug the proposed Pacific cable was
issued tonight. Embodied in the paper
is the statement mado by Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain in the honse of commons
on April 28, to the effect that tbe British government had made proposals to
the governments of Canada and Anstra*
lin on tbe subject ot the proposed cable,
but that uo final arrangements had
been made.
To this is added tbe statement that
tbe government of (..rent Britain has
always considered that the construction
of a cable is of far greater importance
to Australasia and Canada than to the
United Kingdom, and tbat the government wonld not be disposed to recommend tbat parliament vote in aid of the
project, bnt for the desire to afford the
support and assistance of the motherland to tbe great self-governing colonies
in a projeot the success of which
cannot fail to promote imperial unity.
For this reason tho government considers that tbe responsibility of construction and operating the cable should be
borne by Canada and the Australasian
colonies, they taking the profits and the
United Kingdom giving an annual subsidy not exceeding ��20,000 for a period
uot oxceediug twen'y years, the exact
subsidy being five-eighteenths of the
shortage of receipts below expenses aud
provide that the subsidy be payable
only after Canada and the Australasian
colonies shall have completed the cable
and opened it for traffic, and only while
the cable sball reniu'n open
Other provisions of the proposed
agreement necessitate tbat priority be
given to imperial government message*-
at one half the commercial rates uud
imperial approval of the construction
and operation of the cable-.

FROM THE ORIENT
EMPRESS DOWAGER TO REVIEW
3,000,000 ClllI-iESE SOLDIERS.
He Saw Pare and Holden.
Toronto, May 4.-���There is some suspicion that Pare and Holden were in
Toronto on Tnesday aud the police are
looking into the story, bnt as similar
rumors come from a dozen points probably there is nothing in it.
The story is based on the fact that a
blacksmith named MoKelvey, living in
a northwestern subnrb saw two men
whom he says resembled the escaped
prisoners on Tuesday afternoon and they
borrowed a tin can from him to get a
drink at a neighboring tavern. They
did not return the can at the time, bnt
yesterday morning McKolvey found his
can inside his shop, the look of the
door having been picked to enable them
to do this. The. story is sufficiently
ludicrous, bnt it shows the estimation
in whioh Fare's abilities as a locksmith
are held.
C. P. R. Stock.
Montreal, May 5.���The rise in Canadian Pacific stock raukes a glance at
its record interesting. Tbo dividend
record of the O. .P R. common Btook
has been a checkered one, and has run
all the way from 6 per cent per annnm
to nothing at all. The first year of
tne 5 per  cont. dividend was in 1884,
Dewey and the French���The Rebellion In Formosa Not Yet Ended���
The Demand! of Russia.
Vancouver, May 5.���Recent Ohinese
advices received here say that the Dowager Empress is to hold a grand review
in Pekin in Jnne. Nearly 3,000,000
well armed men will be nnder arniB on
tbe occasion. It, is more than likely
that an opportunity will be taken to
pn cl iiui the new emperor at tbe celebration.
The delimitation of territory leased
by the Russians in Manchuria and
the Mao-Tung peninsnla is 'not yet
completed as the demands of the Russians have a tendecy to grow.
Admiral Dewey bas beeu showing
the Frenoh bow to behave. Manila
papers say that when the Prenob ornls-
er Jean Bart came in she gave Admiral Dewey the rear admiral'! salute.
The admiral ordered the salute to be
returned eiuolty as given aud then an
officer on board to call their attention
to tbe new pennant, which seems tto
have escaped their notice.
The rebellion in Formosa is not yet
at an end. The cause whlob seems
to be bringing this storm to a head is
the intolerable taxes whioh a re said to
be imposed on the people. The worst
of it is these taxes are too muoh in tbe
bands of Chinese nnderlinga who seize
the opportunity of punishing their
enemies and rewarding their friends
for a consideration, Hence there is a
vast auiount of injustice administered
about which the antboirties know
nothing.
The Japanese pnnitive expedition is
still in South Formosa, putting down
the rebellion. Hong Kong papers sav
that, as usual, a comparatively small
number  ot real banditti  were killed.
Those wbo tuffered most were the respectable pleasants, who have made
good subjects.

and this was followed by the same
dividend in 1800,1801, 1802, 1898 and
1894. In 1804 the dividend on the
common stook was 2% per oent per
annum, and in 1895 it was 4 per cent.
In 1886 and 1889 the dividend was 8
per cent., while in 1896 and 1897 it
waa 2'i per cent. Last year it was
raised to 4 per cent., and it is now predicted that the earnings will warrant it
being raised again to 5 per cent.
The figure reached here today, 98>a',
was the highest on record, nearly nine
points better than tbe highest of last
year. The lowest prioe the stock ever
reached was in 189S, when the dividend was passed and the common stook
sagged off to 88. On two occasions it
has been down to 85.

How Thu True Child*oi the D��-il

Row dreamily that Bedouin lite.
-with its nneventfalness und its fatalism, fitted tbe time and the placet
Here was a poor Arab who did not
know how old he was, bnt ke conld
look farther into heaven than 1 conld.
His mother had borne him while the
caravan was on its way to Mecca. He
hud worked us a laborer on the Suez
canal, and he had been u dog knuckei
in Constantinople heforo thut. He liml
gone hungry in the wadies of Muuiu-u,
und had rnn aa u cameleer barefcot iu
the burning sands ot Arabia Petri*���.
He had vegetated into manhood on the
lower stratum of this strunge oriental
existence, content to believe that life
was an nnavoidable cnrse. with u drowsy intimation of eternity in it, always
associated with the tinkling of bells,
the rattle of castunets und the sweet
���mell of Beirut tobacco.
Bnt he conld see some things that
were beyond my vision, and I wondered
if this true child of tho desert, born nnder indigo skies, of a race that had been
guided since the days of Moses und
Menephtah by the pillars of lire by
night, had not preserved some powers
of vision that wero common to the
primeval man. He never lost the true
oriental disdain for enterprise and contemporaneous disturbance, and he made
an engineer feel that his work, seen in
the light of the unperturbed stars, was.
utter all, an impertinence to n true

Fooled liy a Ga. Machine.
A Brooklyn woman, whose gas bills
were almost beyond computation und
certainly beyond her purse, had one of
the quarter in the slot machines put in
her flat and anticipated great pleasure
in keeping tab on lier gas expenditure.
Thess machines, by the way. are fed a
quarter, and when the quarter's worth
01 gas is burned they shut off automatically.
Toward evening of the day in which
the machino was installed she wended
her way to the slot and deposited her
money, but when un attempt wus made
to light the gas the machine would not
register, und the evening light was shed
out of lamps and candles. A wrathy
note brought the company inspector to
the scene the next morning, nnd he
thoroughly vindicated the reputation of
tbe contrivance when lie unlocked it
and drew from the inside three nickels
and a dime.���New York Mail and Express.

A weather beaten member   of the
tired fraternity, who had lost a leg and
hnd it replaced by u wooden substitute,
stumped his way up the main street of
a Lanarkshire village the other day
and paused at thu door of the first likely looking dwelling.   Knocking at the
door,   which  wus opened by u brisk,
businesslike housewife, the man begun
his stereotyped whine:
"If ye please, mum, I lost my log"*���
And before he could unfold another
word of his tale the sharp retort came
"Aweel, yo didna loso it here I''
And bung went the door in his face.

Mend Yonr lllril'a Lea.,
Young chickens and other birds frequently break the bones of their lege,
und if properly attended to these fractures can be easily cured with very little trouble As soon as the injury ia
noticed the fracture mnst be carefnlly
clean il and washed with warm water
und then wrapped with u bit of antiseptic cotton. Splints are then prepared
for the fractured limb, preferably of
split elder wood, the pith of which is
taken out These splints are fastened
to the cotton with u drop of glue, and
held tightly in pluce by being wonnd
with linen threud. The bandago and
dressing are left undisturbed for from
three to four weeks, then the leg is
soaked in tepid water nntil the bandage
comes off easily The fracture will have
completely healed In that time.
Ciiuarii-a and other pet birds can be
similarly treated in case of a fracture
of a leg, only lhe elder splints me substituted by pieces of cardboard and the
bandage ia left bnt two weeks on the
little winged patients.

brightening overy one by her sunshiny

AN ARTFUL GAME.
A Clever Swindle Which  \Va* Sue-
cemifnlly Worked In  I'iu'Ih.
Swindling is us monotonous as ethics
or mutheuiatics, nnd the various wuyi
and means resorted to in the last decade
of the nineteenth century for obtaining
possession of other people's money were
matters of common knowledgb in the
Egypt of Rnmeses the Great. But the
Parisian police now affirm that a new
departure has been made on the bank;
of the Seine. And this is how it wall
worked:
An office was hired in a good business street by the inventor of the trick,
who assumed the title ot* somebody and
company, chemical agents. Being convinced advocates of women's rights,
they employed some members of the
fair sex. who dressed in the height of
fashion, used the most fashionable perfumes and then visited singly the best
apothecaries' shop. One of these fair,
false emissaries would stop her cab at
the chemists, come in and. taking out
her purse, ask for another bottle of Dr
Beaumont's elixir. "Dr. Beaumont's
what?" said the young man behind the
counter. "Theelixir. Don't yon know?'
"No: I mil afraid I never heard of it.'
"Oh, how tiresome, and my poor rheumatic husband will Im so disiippointedl
Are yon sure it was not hero that our
servant bought it before?" "No, ma-
dame: it wus not here. Where is it sold
wholesale?" "It is sold wholesale, I
think"��� And here the lady showed the
ticket on the bottle.  "It costs 8 francs. ('
That sumo day the chemist bought
the elixir wholesale, laying in u fair
stock of it, and meanwhile many of the
confreres were doing likewise. But, as
nobody called nny more on the obliging
chemists to bny the elixir, one of the
curious confraternity analyzed this
specific which was supposed to relieve
rheumatics. He found that it was at
least perfectly harmless, consisting of
water colored by coffee grounds. The
police were then let loose npen the ladies and the chemical agents, but they
had all moved on, leaving no address*
They are said to havo netted abont 10.*

THE TOWNSITE OF  DONALD
Purchased by tbe C.P.R., not a
Orant from Dominion Govt
The following letter addressed to H.
Bostock, M.P., by the Dominion Government, adds an interesting chapter
to the history of Donald and shows
that tht C.P.R. actually bought tht
townsite as private property :
Dear Sib.-In reply to yonr letter
of th* 17th instant, reqursiing to be
fully informed of the particulars relative to the acquisition by the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company of the land
upon which the "Donald Townsite"
was surveyed and laid out bv the Government of Canada; I beg ra say that
as far back as the 28th Oct *��� ber, 1885.
Mr. Higginson, late Crown Timber
Agent for British Columbia, reported
to tho Department that lis hud received
several applications for tbt purchase
of lott in thit townsite, but had refused to entertain them for th. reason
that tht land lay within the boundar-
ies staked off by the Railway Company.
In July of 1886, Mr. Drinkwater,
Secretary of the Company, wrote to
the Department that many of the
squatters on tht townsite were of a
very objectionable character, and it
would be very desirable that his Company should control the whole of thi
land adjoining and comprising the
townsite,
On September the 16th of the same
year, the 1st. Hon. Mr. White, then
Minster of tb. Interior, wrote to Sir
William Van Home that he was prepared to give to the Company ao much
laud as it was entitled to under Clause
10 of the Contract between the Company and the Government; and in addition to sell, upon such terms as
might be agreed upon,subject of course
to tbo Company arranging with the
people who bad looated upoo the property, tuoh furthtr arm at that Company might deein ntoMiary to giv*
control within that ana.
The term* agreed upon wire that
the Company should pay at the rate
of (2,50 per acre; and having had tbt
area surveyed, embracing tha townsite
of Donald, tbey subsequently paid tht
purchase money in the following proportion: -88 acres wire granted f rat
us Right of Way and Station Grounds,
and 501.97 acres ware paid for at tht
rate mentioned. Tht patent issued to
tht Company on tht 26th  Aug. 1887.
