Troth died, the mining boom collapsed
and Donald itself took the down

Again con-as round the fettivo season of the year. Yule-tide is the one
aiuual festival that is observed all the
world over with those ceremonies
which are supposed lo exhibit tho hest
and mast generous traits of humanity.
It is a season above all for the children
when thoy enjoy tT.e generosity of
parents and friends in special degree.
For the sake of the children even-
town and community should have its
Christmas trees and entertainments,
and we think is is a thousand pities
that this old-time festival is not observed in Golden Oft this Christmas-
tide ac in previous yours. Ou the
children the futui-o of the nation depends, and it is the daty of all to endeavor to make their lives noble, and

The Liberals ire .till dominant tn
the Dominion, The bye-elections held
last week were almost a clean sweep
for the Liberals, who carried nine out
of teu seats.
The Semlin Government ur* evidently retaining the confidence of the people. Mr. Neill has been again returned
for the Alberni bye election by a substantial majority over Mr. Ward, the
Turnerite candidate.
Th* Kamloops Sentinel very truly
remarks: "The fact that Hon. Jos.
Martin is being so freely abused by the
Opposition press, will persuade most
men that he is the right man iu the
right place,"
The News-Advertiser says: "The
present provincial Government has
succeeded to a terrible load of debt and
obligations as lhe legacy Irom the
discredited Turner administration.
Scarcely a week passes that does net
disclose some new blunder on the part
of the late Government, whereby fur
ther financial obligations are eatailed
or new and unexpected demalds made
ou th* Province."
Th* Boundary Croek Times Hays:
"It is decidedly refreshing to watch
the acts ol Hon. Joseph Marti*, after
several years of a lethargic uttornty-
ganaral. Hon. Mr. Martin is taking
charge of the cases at the assises and
is prosecuting with a vigor characteristic ef the man. In tbe details of his
department he acts promptly and there
Is no uncertainty about his intentions,

The Semlin Government propose to
inaugurate a splendid policy ia regard
to public works and railway charters
In seine cases the province will direct
ly undertake railroad extension and
other public works arid in others possibly co-operate by loan or sharetaking,
whilst there may be a very limited
number of cases in which subsidies lu
cash or kind may be advisable. But
in these last the present governmont
will take particular car* that a very
distinct quid pro quo shall be secured

the manager of the Fi-such Creek H.a -

Columbia River, In the vicinity of Surprise Rapids, about 30 milts north of
The Company has had prospectors at
work on the ground for somo time,
and is satisfied as to its value as a hy
draulic field. The French Creek Company is an enterprising concern, and
tho fact that it is taking up this
ground is a guarantee that it has a
good prospect in hand, The laying in
ot water and hydraulic pipes will provide a lot of labor during the coming
season, if tho enterprise is taken up in

A Big Strike RoportaMl,
A big strike of copper ore is rsportod
on tbe Swansea, at Windermere, It is
stated that tho ore body struck in tbo
shaft shows six inches of native copper end tliraoo feet of carbonates. If
these statements and indications at*
correct the Savansua gives promise of
being a big capper mine in the future.
The St. Eugene expects to send *ut
its lirst shipoment of ore by the first
of aTanna'ry.
It is reported that a deal is ou hand
for tho purchase of the copper locations
on Jubilee Mountain.
The Winnipeg Free Press says that a
smelting process has besu invented hy
which ores can besu elted fortl a ton.

claim, located at Moyi*.'
The Boundary Creek Times says :
"Heretoforo crown grants issued for
mining properties contained tbe names
of owners, but lot their interests.
Each man had an equal interest according to the crown grant. Police
Magistrate Hnllet wrote fo the attor-
ney-geueral pointing out that a client
of his had applied for a crown grant
for a valuable mining property in
which he held a 2d-.Si.ud interest. The
crown grant did not show that bis interest was any greater than that of
the other owner. Hon. Mr. Martin
replied at once that lie fully endorsed
Ur. Huliet's contention and that he
had made arrangements to have crown
grants made out iu the future 30 that
th* interest Of each jrantee will be
expressly stipulated. This decision is
an important one, as it rolievos miae
owners of muoh worry and expense."
Nelson Tribnno says:���The prospect
of profit from the mica deposits of the
Ye!l*w Head Pass and other points in
the Rockies are very bright, Some
300,000 pounds of this mineral are used
annually in the United States, and the

Ko instance had been shewn of it

that of uian who were inoptnpetent;
aud iu no case was a man dismissed
to make room for political suppoi'tere
or friends of members of the government. Referring to iho dismissal 0?
Mr. Dick, he said he had aot done hi't
duty, therefore he had to go to make
room tor a man who would do his,
duty. Referring to ex-Magistrate
Macrae's dismissal, the speaker explained the investigation and Btartd
tliat under similar circurastancts he

stamps, for which goods were exchanged, which system of business
waa to all intents and purposes selling, and ho fined defendant $10 and
coats, and ordered the license to be
paid. The decision will be appealed,

Florence hardly recognized herself
when she gave the final look In tbe large
mirror. The bright glistening silk was
softened by rich white lsae; the fair face,
usually so calm and tranquil, was
Bushed with excitement: there was a
light In her eyei whloii came from hopes
as Might as they were beautiful. The
thick colls ot light-brown hair were
woven and plaoed. like a coronet round
the graceful head. The well-sbsped arms
and neek rivalled the pearls tbnt gleamed upon them. A fair vision of loveliness was Florence Hamilton as she stood
In her ball-dress. Her mother and lover
were both proud of her.
Florence was bewildered by tbe coup
d aeil that the ball-room presented; but
she and Walter were more than bewildered when Inez stood before them, her
radiant fuce bright with smiles of wel-
oorae. Walter had Mrer seen Mils De
Burgh before In evenlng-dresa, and he
was literally daezled by her bewitching
beauty. A robe of white satin gleamed
through the white lace that shrouded Its
bright folds, a coronet of diamonds lay
mid the dark wavy masses of hair, a diamond necklace enolroled tho shapely
throat, diamonds gleamed on the bare
arms. In the bodice ot her dress he wore
one orlmson camellia, and that was the
only show of color whioh relieved her
attire. She wns Indeed a vision of loveliness,
Inez opened the ball with Lord fleas
dale, then Walter claimed her for a waltz.
The music, the perfumes, the flashing
jewels, the waving plumes, and the
beautiful women all brought to him a
sense of enchantment. When the notes
of the waltz sounded and he moved to
its muslo with Miss De Burgh, he was
fascinated beyond expression. Her lustrous eyes were raised to his, her red lips
were parted with the sweetest of smiles,
"I am never tired of waltzing," the
said ss they stood for a few minutes
watching the happy couples as the went
floating by.
"I should never tire cf waltzing with
you," declared Walter. "I would give
years of life's sober joys for one suoh
half-hour as this."
"I am not n 'sober joy,' I suppose,"
she returned, with n pretty pout.
"You, Miss Do Burgh? You are fascination  itself���Irresistible; you  are���"
"Do not go Into raptures, Mr, Bohun,"
she Interrupted, laughing. "I am rather
amused. I should hardly havo thought
you capable of appreciating anything
but sober joys My awn ease Is different,
I oonfess honestly that I like excitement
of all kinds. The only approach to a
fault that I have noticed In you Is that
you seem too quiet."
"Ah, you do not know met I feel as
though I had awakened from a long
deep sleep."
"At whose oallf" she asked, with an
air of Innocence that she knew well how
to assume,
"Can you ask me, Miss De Burgb? I
seem to pereelve beauty and grace for
the first time."
"That Is hardly flattering to yonr old
friends Mr. Bohun. Bee���there Is Florence looking at us with eyes full of wonder! Let ns join her."
It was half reluctantly that Walter
complied; he wanted to remain near this
darling Ciroe who had captivated and en*
trailed him. A few weeks since he would
have asked from Fortune nothing better
than to 'be with Florence. Now ths
thought ot leaving the radiant girl by
his side for conversation or a danoe with
bis betrothed was wearisome. He bad
tasted the oharmed oup.
Florence had noticed the long tete-a-
tete, and the admiring look tbat ber
lover bent upon their hostess. A sharp
pang of jealousy shot through the girl's
heart ss she saw Walter's Impassioned
gesture and the blush that covered Inez's
Miss De Burgh had no Idea of the engagement between Miss Hamilton and
Walter Bohun, for the two still kept lt a
profound secret���and she was not displeased on that happy evening to read
something more than admiration In the
young man's faoe, For, with all the
strength of ber warm passionate nature,
Inez loved Walter Bohun, and she had
resolved that he should return her love;
she had loved him from the first moment
tbe saw him by the brook-tide.
Walter was simple and inexperienced:
he did not know the eharm that drew
him constantly to the Hall; the glamour
of love wat upon him. He had made one
mistake In life, and now he was to make
a greater. He had mistaken the quiet
brotherly affection he had always felt
for Florence Hamilton for affection of
another kind; and now, when he wat
���wakened to a knowledge of hit own
heart, he threw bis love, uninfluenced by
any thought of her real worth, at the
feet ot one who had won him by the simple powers of her lustrous beauty.
That he had made a mistake Walter
felt convinced at he watched the two
girls���Florence to gentle, so fair, aud to
salmi, Insz so beautiful, brilliant and
piquant No thought of the future
troubled him at he tunned himself In the
light of her eyes, but, at be watched
Mist D* Burgh, ho wished with a sigh
that he had not been In quite tuob a
hurry to engage himself.
"What a grave faoe," said Inez to
him, as the flatbed by on Lord Bess*
dale's arm. '
A few minutes later the returned
alone. He wat still standing where she
had left him.
"Mr. Bohun," she said, "have you
danced with Florenoo yetf"
He began to stammer tome excuse.
"Nonsense," she orled. "Come with
me���the is In the conservatory with Mrs.
Hamilton���and you will then be uble
to thank me for having procured you a
'sober Joy.' "
There w*t a slight ring of sarcasm in
her voice; yet, slight as It wus, it gave
fresh Impulse to Walter's new train of
The ball,, with all Its glories, was
ended at last; but, when Florence
thought of - the events of the evening,
she did not feel satisfied. There wat
somsthlng nsw and strange about Walter.
Yet the next evening he come as usual,
and wss kind and affectionate In his
manner. True he teemed rather absent
and onoe or twice he called her "Inez,"
at whioh she smiled and her mother
looked grave.
It was very slowly that the truth
dawned upon Florence; hut she could
not ovoid seeing lt at longth. Walter's
visits to the cottage beaame lest fra*-
quent���he seemed to live at the Hall.
She had met him riding with luez In
the green lanes, and they had pulled up
and spoken to her. But on tuoh occasions the did not like tbe light on the
beautiful face or   the  air   of confusion
_  whioh her lover met bar.
Outwardly things went on at usual;
bnt In reality Walter had awakened to
the knowledge that he loved the beautiful Inez de Burgh with a devotion to
wbioh ho oould set no limit. The affection he had entertained for Florenoe
was as different from his overpowering
all-mastering love as moonlight from
sunlight. He would have given a year ot
his life for one loving word from th*
haughty lips. It was first love, without
reason, without control, without anything tave Its own violence. Still no
word did he utter of love to the one girl,
while materially he did not ohange to
tbe other.
But Florenoe taw lt all. The gentle
faithful beart wat stung to tbs quick.
His lovs had been her life, her hope, ner
all; her mother bad thought very muoh
of it, and had rejoiced In the future that
shs believed her child would enjoy. Ah,
why had thit radiant beauty, with her
proud faoe, come to take her lover from
herr Florence wept passionate bitter
tears. Surely Mlas De Burgh, with her
anolent lineage,  her noble  name,   her
aright loveliness, might have been hapr?
with one of the peers the hnd talked
about I Why mutt the step In and lure
Walter from her?
Tbe calm face grew pale aud tnd, the
dove-like eyes had a deep shoal a,�� bs*
neath them, there was a ring of pain In
every word that fell from her lips. Not
that sho thought yet of the worst that
might happen. She was Jealous and unhappy, and, though the visited Ines, at
times there was somsthlng like anger
springing up In her beart for her beautiful rival.
While affairs were In thit unsatisfactory state a new career wat dawning for
Walter Bohun. A message come ono
morning summoning blm to London,
where Sir Thornton lay dying at hia
town house. He had wished at last to
see his long-neglected heir.
There was but little time for uttering
fsrewells. Walter went first to the oot-
tage and told his news,
"I have not a moment to spare, Florence," he eald. ",I shall write to you
however when I reach London, Goodbye, dear;" and he put his lips lightly
to hers.
Only the day before he had kissed
with far greater ardor a rosebud that
Inez bad touched I
"Good-bye, Walter," she responded
quietly; and her lips quivered and her
eyes grew dim with tears at the spake.
Then he hurried to the Hall. Sir Hubert entered heartily Into his affairs.
Inez stood listening, with a dreamy softened expression on her face. Sir Hubert
left them to say adieu while he ordered
the dog-oort, Intending to drive Walter
to the station himself.
"So you are going to London, Mr.
Bohun?" said Inez.
"Yes; let me take one kind word with
me to cheer and brighten the way. '
"What would you like me to say?"
she usked smilingly.
His face grew pale with emotion.
"Say, 'Good-bye dear Walter; I will
try to like you.' "
She repented the words slowly after
him, a deep blush ooverlng her faoe.
"Will you try to like me, Inez!" he
"Perhaps 1 do now," the replied. ' We.
are going to London next month, and
then I may tell you more about It."
"Now, Walter," orled Sir Hubert,
"sre you ready?"
Walter pressed his lips upon the hand
that he held In his and want away, the
music of her words ringing In hit   oars.
Some weeks afterwards the family at
the Hall left Oulston to spend the end
of the tesson In London. Inez colled to
toy good-bye to Florenoe and Mrs. Hamilton. She thought ths formar cold and
constrained In her manner, and so did
not, as she bad intended, atk her to
write to her while the remained In town.
The village teemed qnlet and deserted
now, and poor Florenoe began to count
the days which must elapse before her
lover returned. She little thought that
Walter Bohun and herself would never
meet In Oulston again.
... . * t
- Long dreary months pasted, and there
was at yet no time fixed for Walter's
return. Neither had the De Burgh fnm
Uy given any Intimation uf coming to
the Hall.
Florenoe wrote to Walter and he replied. His letters were always kind and
affectionate, very much Ike the letters of
a brother to a sitter; but, If Florence
had known the world better, the wonld
have recognised tbat there was little In
them that bespoke tbe lover. Of lata
however even these epistles had grown
rarer. Sometimes two or three weeks
would elapse, and then a hurried little
note would come saying how muoh th*.
writer was engaged.
But Florence oould not avoid noting
that there wat never any mention ot
their marriage or of the future that he
hod once painted for her In suoh bright
colors. Nor did he speak of his prospects,
his new estates, or the houses that at
last were his. It was not a cheerful stats
of affairs, and the glrl't face began to
look very grave; there was no light of
happiness thlnlng now In ths clear eye-.
One morning���lt was th* last hopeful
one of poor Florence's life���tbe welcome
sound of tha postman's knock waa heard
at tbe cottage door. Mr*. Hamilton took
the letters from the servant. There wat
one for Florence In Walter's handwriting. Thinking lt would afford tome
pleasure to her daughter, who hid teemed
neither well nor happy of late, Mrs.
Hamilton took lt up to her room. Florence was still asleep, so her mother laid
the letter on the pillow, where she would
see lt on awakening.
One hour pasted after another, and
Florenoe did not eome down smiling and
bright as Mrs. Hamilton expeoted. At
last the went up again and softly entered the room.
Florenoe was lying still and motionless, the letter opened and clasped In her
hands. On drawing nearer Mre. Hamilton, to her great alarm, saw that bar
ohlld was not sleeping, but had besom*
All else was forgotten In the anxiety
of the moment: but, when the clew blue
eyei had opened once more and th* colorless lips had parted to utter faintly
something about her letter, Mre, Hamilton bethought herself of It and, picking
It np from the floor where lt had fallen,
she read the words' that had been as a
death-blow to the trembling girl before

Quit Gambling.
"Bluoher, like many prominent men of
his time, was a reckless gambler. The
kin?, wbo was much attached to him, bad
paid hit debts over and over"again, but It
was of no use. The old marshal had gone
through his wife's property as well aa his
own, and his pay was always spent In advance. Once he was 'dead broke' and had
to go to the king. 'If I get you out of this
scrape, will you promise me not to gamble
nguinP' said the king. Hlncher gave the
promise and added as the king gave him
liiii.OOO thalers, 'I will go straight home
to my wifo aud Bottle half of this money
upon her, so that I shall not be able to
touch It, and 1 will then pay up all my
debts and nover touch a card any more.'
'Bluoher wont home, gave 50,000 to hit
w'.io aud after dinner sallied forth to pay
tils debts. At midnight Bluchor's wife
wits roused from her slumber by ono of
Im r husband's stnff officers, who had been
sent fur 25,000 tholers. 'Dear, good man,'
snl-.l the lauly. I knew he would want It
before morning, so I have put up Just that
emu in a package for him. Here It Is, and
tell him tu tie careful about the oold sir
coming homo and to muffle up well.'
'The officer departed, only to return
after a few hours for tho rest of the money,
with the some success. Bluoher went
home to breukfost In the morning, having
lost every penny of the king's gift at play.
"Again Blucher went to tbe king, told
the wbolo story and listened attentively
to all the reproaches until his majesty
said, 'Uncle'���for ho always colled Bluoher
'uncle'���'1 thought you gave roe your
sacred word of honor that you would not
play cards for money again.' 'No, sir,'
answered Blucher, l did not give my
snored word of honor.' 'Will you give lt
to ine now?' asked the king. ' Aeh, that
It a hard thing to ask from Bluchor,' replied the hero of Waterloo. But after some
grumbling the sacred promise was given,
and old - Vorwocrts' stopped gambling.''

How   Ther   Stand   the   Climate  and

It may be Interesting to note how English people live in India. Those thnt have
been usod to a climate liko ours cannot,
without great danger and sacrifice, live
as the nntlves do, to they adopt a style
that prudence and experience havo sug
gested as best suited to the conditions that
exist there.
In nearly all the larger cities the houses
of the Kuropeani aro found In the sub
nrbs, surrounded by large plots of ground
often four or fife acres In extent. Thus
the noisome smells of the thickly crowded
native olty are In a measure avoided, and
one ts shut out from tbe peculiar noises
and cries and thrumming of oriental Instruments of tnuslo and the olouds of dust
that continually swell up from the great
The houses occupied by the Europeans
are usually built on a plan that will ol
low of lofty rooms and ample ventilation
They are only one story high and have a
large veranda across the front and rear
Thut the hot tun Is kept out and free circulation Is allowed. The kitchen it a
small house, all by Itself, at one tide of
the dwelling house or In the rear.
Owing to the extreme heat, white worn
en oannot pos-lbly do their own work
The climate Is suoh tbat manual work Is
simply out of the question. Servants ore
easily obtainable, and with their assist
ance, when one hat a genius for managing them, living In that country Is not
only tolerable, but even pleasant Servants will work Indefinite hours eaoh day
for $1,50 a month and support themselves.
They are neat and quiet, and almost Invariably perform their respective duties
In an efficient manner. It takes 13 or IB
servants to run a bout* well. Many ladle* have even a larger number. Tbe

British Sharks.
British sharks are very substantial foots.
Tb* largest of them la an Innocuous giant
that basks in the sunshine and perhaps
feeds on nothing larger than a shrimp.
But the blue shark aud porbeagle, both of
whioh grow to a length of several yards
and a-welght of hundreds of pounds, are
vicious petti and most unweloome on ths
fishing grounds. The former takes bit favorite pleasure In eating mackerel out of
tha nets, doing as muoh damage In Its
disentanglement as will absorb a fisherman's weekly wage to make good. Wherefore lt comes about that as soon as one Is
hauled aboard the fishermen forget their
aoouttomed mildness, and, seizing it close
to the tall, belabor with Its shovel shaped
head th* nearest thwart until peace reigns

The porbeagle Is a somewhat leas active
and less vlolous animal of duller hue and
of a smell that passes any other on sea or
land To prevent Its blood imparting this
odor of tho abattoir to the boat the porbeagle Is usually slain over the side snd Is

Twelve Hundred Mile. Long and On*
of the World's Wondera.
That great barrlor reef which frloget
the coast of Queensland north of Brisbane
In the direction of Torres straits must always rank amung the wondera of the
world. For 1,300 miles the coral animalcule have raised a solid protection against
the rage of the ocean swell at a distance
varying from 30 to 150 miles from the
shore, leaving a comparatively safe and
oalra Inner passage, suitable for navigation by th* largest steamers on their voyages north and east. Sundry ohannels
penetrate the reef at Intervals, and whole
fleets of trading schooners are regularly
engaged amid the Intricate labyrinth of
coral islets.
Those who have seen the skeleton madrepores and branchlug corals on the shelves
of a museum can form no conception of
the surpassing beauty of the living organisms, vigorous ot or near the surface ot
the translucent teas. On the ebbing tide
wo find every description of animated coral
growth exposed from the rounded masses
of brain coral to the stag's horn madrepores, those of corymbose form and a variety too numerous to mention. The brilliant coloration of the myriads of polyps
Includes every shade, from the more somber brown ot thefungla tribe to delicate
lemon yellows, lilac, pink, rloh green Interspersed with golden hues, apple greens
tipped with violet, bright red, chocolate,
purple and even blue The various aggregations of minute vivacious animals possess all modifications of radiated inflorescence. Some have club headed tentacles,
others expand In a feathery fringe, while
tho number of rays to eaoh organism varies
according to the families and genera of
coral classification.
These gardens of the sea are too beautl

lime secreting corals pass Into the uncovered sea anemones of resplendent kinds,
antl the reefs swarm with numberless
ochinoderms, nudlbranoh lnollusca and

Pain and Weakness Banished
through lhe uso of Milburn's

It's sad to think that so many women
suffer from pain, Weak Spells, Heart
Palpitation,   Sinking   Sensations,
Nervousness, Sleeplessness���who could
be restored to the full enjoyment of perfect health by a few boxes of Milburn's
Heart and Nerve Pills.
There can bo no question about the
efficacy of this remedy. Thousands of
women, have found it do all that isclaimcd
for it. Hera Is the testimony of Mrs.
Glllen, Wesley Street, Moncton, N.B.
" Before taking Milburn's Heart and
Nerve Pills I used to suffer untold agony
from violent headaches, irregular action
of tha heart, together with pains or
spasms in various parts of my body.
"Sometimes I felt so weak that I was
unable to look after my domestic duties.
However, I had to endure this worry and
trouble, because all the remedies I tried
failed to give me relief, until happily I
heardof Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills.
I had only been takingthem a short time
when I felt greatly benefited. This encouraged me to continue their use until
a complete cure was effected.
" I have not been troubled with a headache since taking these pills. They increased my appetite, Invigorated my entire system, and gave me back my old
time strength and vigor."

Wiofred Schofield, of Gaspereau. N S., Telia
How He Obtained a Speedy and
Permanent Curt.
From the Acndla-n, Wolfville, S. S.
The many oases brought to his notice
of residents in this vioinity being cured
from physical disorders through the
ngenoy of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
have created in the mind of the Acadian
representative a sincere belief iu the
healing powers of this remedy. Tet
withal he was a little incredulous the
other day when told of a yonog man
wbo had been cured of a very serious
and deplorable disease by the use of
only some two boxes of these little
mirac-lo workers. It seemed impossible
that such a remarkable healing oould
Be wrought even by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills in such snort order. Accordingly he was possessed of a strong
desire to investigate. Mr. Winfrod
Schofield, of Gaspereao,was the address
given us by our informant, and were
not long in hunting him up. We
found Mr. Schofield to be a bright
young man of abont twenty years of
age and of moro than ordinary intelligence. Hia air ot candor and straightforwardness dispelled any doubts we
may have had. In a very few words he
stated to us his case. "Two years ago,"
he said, "I was taken with an attack of
St. Vitus Dance, Sometimes when at
work I found that my fingers would all
at once straighten out and I would be
compelled to drop anything I was hold
ing. One dny I was using on axe when
seised with ono of these attacks. The
axe slipped from my nunds and in falling struck my foot and gave it a nasty
cnt. After that you oan depend upon
it I left axes aloue, and it wus not long
before I had to give up using any kind
of tool. My complaint rapidly grew
worse and I was soon unfitted for any
sort of work. Everything possible was
tried by my iu order to get relief, but I
got no better. At last one day a neighbor of mine, Mr. Fred Fielding, who
hod been cured by the UBe of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, advised me to give
them a trial, offering to pay for them
himself if they did not help me. As il
turned ont he was safe enough in making the offer. I followed his advice,
but had soaroely begun to use them
when I began to feel very mu3h better.
After using two boxes I was perfectly
cured aud have never been troubled
with the complaint since. I am confident that to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
alone I owe my oure.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create new
blood, build up tbe nerves, and thus
drive disease from the system. Iu linn,
dreds of cases they have cured after all
other medicines have failed, thus estao
lishing tho claim that they ore a marvel
among the triumphs of modern medical
science. The gent in) Pink Pills are
sold only in boxes, bearing the full
trademark "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People." Protect yourself from
imposition by refusing any pill that
does not bear the registered trade mark
around the box. If in doubt send direot
to Dr. Williams' Medioine Co., Brock*
ville, Ont., and they will be mailed to

The Last Execution at Tyburn.
The last execution at Tyburn took plnoa
on Friday, Nov 7, 1788, in the person of
John Austin, convicted on the preceding
Saturday of robbing John Spleer and cutting and wounding him In a oruel manner. In Wnlford's "Old and New London" lt la erroneously said that "the lost
criminal exeouted here wa* one Byland,
who was hung (sic) for forgery In 1783."

conviction, and many a poor wretoh ninde

about Bismarck, for whioh an aged Swedish lady Is the authority. Nearly 00 years
ago, whon a girl, she went to Berlin,
where she expected to meet a cousin, thon
studying at the university there. This
cousin appeared and proved to be a fascinating youth. For several days bo waa
a constant escort and a charming companion. It wot only when ihe wot on the eve
of departure that he mad* the explanation: "You tee, my dear cousin, I am not
your cousin. My friend, your cousin, It
so very busy preparing for an examination
tbat he has asked me to take his place.
My name It Otto vor. Bismarck." In
1880, when the lady made ber next visit
to Berlin, the called on the chancellor,
who remarked: "I have to thank you tbat

Lord Malmesbuiy usod to relate a good
etory told him by one of Napoleon's
oflDoors���an Incident of tbe peninsular
campaign. Tbe French officer wos recon-
nolGering with throe or four troopers,
when they come suddenly npon a young
English officer similarly occupied, mounted on a superb thoroughbred horse. Sum*
moned by the French oolonet to surrender, he quietly cantered away with a mocking smile on his face. The Frenchman,
who rode a heavy horse, pursued at full
gallop. The Englishman allowed him to
get quite olost. Then kissing hia hand,
and leaving him behind, he ahouted,
pointing to hia horse, "A Norman horse,
sii." Again the Frenchman punned,
threatening to ahoot hia enemy If he did
not surrender. He went so for as to point
n pistol at him, Lut the weapon missed
fire, With a roar of laughter, the young
Englishman shouted again, "Made at
Versailles, sir," and giving the thoroughbred his hood was soon out ot sight. It
was most amusing to bear tho colonel
tell this story and describe his rage,
adding, however, that he had always felt
glad that he had not shot "the brave

"Ur. Cragg cannot tell me anything
abont Dodd's Kidney Pills that I don't
k*ow��lready," said a well-known lawyer, who waa discussing the matter
with a group of friends yesterday. "I
have knovvh them to cure cases ef
Rheumatism which six doctors had
pronounced incurable."
"I have experie*c*d what Dodd's
Kidn--y Pill* will do," said Mr. John
Nichols* Babcock, another well-known
resident. "I sufferred the most acute
tortures from Gravel and other Kidney
Disease*, for twenty long yean, I
spent hundreds of dollars in doctors'
hills, and for various so called cure* but
wilh no lasting benefit.
"I didn't b. l"*v* Dodd's Kidney Pill*
would enra w, but expected to get a
little temporary relief from their use.
J was completely and thoroughly cured
by them though. There is no Kidney
medicine on enrth to compare with
Dodd's Kidney Pills." -.

Its Wondrous Work Commands
the Admiration of AH.
It only requires the fair a*"d honest
use of one bottle of Paine's Celery Compound to convince a suffering man or
woman that there is virtue, power and

���f sickness ar* now using Paine's
Celery Compound in preference to all
other medical prescriptions.
Some people, who have never tasted
the health-giving virtue* of Paine's
Celery Compound' wrongly class it
with the common patent medicine*,
aaraaparillas, nervines and purifiers so
extensively advertised. Paine's Celery Compound is far removed from
any of these ordinary preparations; it
is as muoh superior to ali other medicines as the diamond is superior lo
