Winnipeg Free Prise says "the oppdtl

Md By 0. A. Wsrrea.
Id conversation with Capt, Armstrong the other day ha made a remark
that strikes us as being well worth
notice in the interests of Golden. Talk
ing nf tbe Kicking Horse, he said that
if tHe channel of the rivbr were deepened, straightened and banked us suggested by the Board it Trade, the
boats of 'he Up|*er Coltilhbia Naviga-
tidn Company could cone iiu tho Kicking Horse River to the bridge iusteud
of starling from and stepping at the
Lumber Company's mill ut present.
We raised the objection -Jhat the current ��'��s too strong, but rhe ('upturn
repliuil that it waa not-tfiiit the current of the Stickine wi-as inuch worse
and that thero would bo no difficulty
���whatever in dealing with the matter.
It needs lit tie argumWit to show the
advantage of boats- arriving at uud
starting from the heart 61 the town
and such an ui-raiigSinetu could tioi
fail lo prove a great fnteotivu to tourists to take advantage of the river trip
up the Columbia Valley, Besidss, bv
the arrangement proposed, a wharf
could be i-onstriicte'd on the bank of
ths river ou lha -Vest fide of the
bridge, and if tin) f'.P.R. would ran
one of their side ti-'stks alongside this
wharf it would e'tonomise and facilitate the handling of 6fe from t he mines
up the river, and e'f cargo tbr, tbo different points in the valley. The suggestion is one- -Jrhicii o-ufcht to be
brought to lhe notice of the Marine
Department by the BoaiM of Trade.
This would effect two things���effectually remedy the trouble-A-itir the Kicking Horse, and give impof-ranc additional facilities for the up-river trade
by carrying it right iato' the heart of
the town. *
The' Province endc-rSes in the following words the views' expressed by us
in last issue,and We again urge them on
citi-OTiiS aud busm'*-*).-* men alike:-
"Complaint is being made in Victoria
that so many business men are tending
to outside points for thoir printing
that thb local offices lire closing down
and throwing men out of work. The
merchants in turn are complaining be
cause so many people send to England
not onlv for thoir clothes but fur the
miscelluneouu* dry golds they require,
and the habit if patronising tbe big

sharply criticized, tt it top bad that

Loii-lon, Dee. 4.���Lord Kltcheiior has
been astonithliig London tills week by
an exhibition of tile mart extraordinary energy on behalf of his pet project, the founding af a Cordon Memorial college at Khartoum. On Tuesday he Bald he wanted $500,000 for
carrying out the scheme. Being a
man of action, he Immediately started
out to get It In. H�� spent days and
nights addressing all sorts of gatherings, from bankers, brokers and
merchants in the city, to actors and
society men In tte west ond. Everywhere he has stated frankly aud plainly that he wanted money, and he got
it. Up to to-day considerably more
than half the sum required has been
subscribed, and the fund Is still growing. So great is the enthusiasm that
lt Is not hard to believe that the sum
asked for will be made up many times
over. As oue Londoner put it, tbe appeal so far has only been made to the
wealthy classes for their pounds.
Wait till tbe people are asked for
their shillings. Among the subscribers are William Waldorf Astor, ��5,-
000; London Kotebery, ��1,000; col.
Courad, 1:1,000; J. S. Morgan & Co.,
��1,000; Sir Thomas Llpton, 500 guineas, and Cecil Rhodes, ��500. An

Off Highland  Light.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 29.���A special
to tho Herald from North Truro says
the steamer Portland, of the Boston anil
Portland Steamship company, plying
botweeu Boston and Portland, was
totally wrecked nt 10 o'clock on Sunday morning off Highland Light, aud
tho entire crew nnd passengers perished
within a short distance of the hind. A
largo quantity of wreckage, including
trunks and other material, have come
ashore aud at dark last night thirty-
four bodies had been recovered from the
surf by the lifo saving crew at High
Head station. One of tho bodies wns
that of a woman. Tho news of tho disaster was brought to the Herald through
the agency of a special train as communication with Boston hy wire from
points ou Cape Cod is impossible on account of the havoc wrought by tht'
storm. ,
Now York, Not. 39.���The French
Cable company has received a dispute!**,
from its office at Cape Cod, Mass., saying that it dozen bodies from the
steamer Portland hnvo been washed
ushoro at the station.
From reports thnt have come by wire,
mail and messenger to the Associated
Press from Now England points np te
10 o'clock this forenoon, it was difficult
even to estimate the total loss of lifi
and shipping along this coast, as the result of tho recent storm. The list of
disasters seems to grow every hour and
from tho dispatches thus far received il
appears that at least thirty schoouen?
have been wrecked at different pointf
from Eastport, Maine, to New Haven,
Conn, Eighty-six sohooners havo been
driven ashore, fourteen barges loaded or
empty aro aground, beside a large nnm-
bcr of smaller craft. This list does not
inclndo the thirty vessels either wholly
or partially wrecked iu Boston harbor.'
nor half a dozen or more craft which
are reported missing, including tin
Boston & Portland steamer, Portland,
nor the big Wilson line freighter, Ohio,
which is ashore on Spectacle island in
this harbor; the steamer John J. Hill
which is ashore at Atlantic, the Merchants' and Miners' transportation
steamer Fairfax, on Sow and Pigf
Ledge.bff Cntty-Hnnk at tlio north, the
small steamer George A. Chaffee foundered at Rockport, Mass.,when these an
added the aggregate list exceeds 170
It is known that abont forty persons
perished in and abont Boston harbor.
Reports from another places, in sour
oases state that the crew of this or that
vessel escaped. In many eases where
tho fate of the crow is reported unknown the survivors have turned np at
the life saving stations, and incoming
vessels have brought a few sailers from
the wrecks. Perhaps a score would
cover those of whom nothing is known,
not including the sixty-five or more
who were on board the steamer Portland.
Everything possible is being done in
and abont Boston to save tho shipping
that has met with disaster and render
as comfortable as possible all the survivors.
Transportation which wot generally
blockaded throughout New England is
being opened np slowly. All the roads
running from Boston were fairly clear
this afternoon. In tho remote districts,
however, highways and other means of
transportation will be blocked for some
Affairs In Havana.
Havana, Dec. 2,���The executive committee of the Cuban assembly agreed
at its last session to make it compulsory
upon the part of any Cnban officer insulted by Spanish, United States, or
other officers, to challenge the provoker
to fight a duel. The measure has two
aims, according to the Cubans, first "to
maintain the dignity of the Cuban
army," and secondly "to cheok the
impudence and insolence of many so-
called Cuban officers, who,without ever
having put their courage to tho test,
having enlisted after the armistice, and
swaggering obout with Cuban uniforms, endeavoring to offend Spanish
officers." It is leam-sd on good author";
ity that tbe Cubans have recently and
secretly acquired quite a formidable
armament, tho ulterior objeot of which
is not known. It is added that thoy
have pnrohased over 8,000 rifles within
tho last ten days, and the faot that
they are continuing to pnrchnse. arms
and ammunition is causing considerable
speculation here.	
Miners Pleated.
Victorio, Deo. a.���Tho new regulations for hydraulic mining in Yukon
commend themselves favorably to min
ing mep here, with the excoption that
many think tbe amount of land to be
granted nndnly excessive. It is thnnght
that if tho length of claims were reduced, and the width or depth, ns the
miners call it, increased, it would bo
better. The royalty is accepted as
reasonable, although the opinion is ex.
pressed that hydrnulicing operations
should be let off lighter than ordinary
placer miners owing to the enormous
amount of capital involved.
M. Diifny Opposes.
Paris, Deo. 2.���In tho chamber of
deputies today, M. Guuthier, republican, introduced a resolution providing
for the election of senators by universal
suffrage and demanded urgenoy. The
premier, M. Dupuy, opposed the granting of nrgenoy, aud said the chamber
shonld think twice before deciding
upon a proposition changing the whole
electoral system. Urgency, however,
was adopted by a vote of 248 to 228.
"Now, Florence, listen to mo for one
moment. I promise to love you truly,
and you alone; 1 will devote my whole
life to you happiness. Tell me, In return, will you be my wife?"
The speaker was a tall, well-built
young man. of twenty years, with a dark
und somewhat haughty expression of
face, regular features, and large lustrous
eyes; his head was covered with black
wavy hair. Walter Bohun was Indeed a
line specimen of an Englishman.
His companion was fair. .'With culm
dove-like eyes and a wonderfully sweet
expressive face. No one ever called Florence Hamilton beautiful; yet all who
knew her loved her for her oharm of
manner, her sweet disposition, her noble
character. Hers was the highest order of
loveliness���tbe beauty that comes from
a noble mlnu and heart.
As sho stood amongst tho trees, the
sheen of the golden sunlight falling upon
her, she looked a fair and lovable woman���one whom a man might be proud
to woo and win, and make his own.
She listened to her lover's ardent words
with quiet happiness that shone in her
love-lit' eyet. When he had finished
speaking, she placed her hand In his and
said gently:���
"Yes, I will bt your wife, Walter; and
I will be true and faithful until death."
The words were few, but they meant
more coming from Florence Hamilton
than would a whole volume from more
cureless lips; they meant that through
weal and woe, throiign good and ill, In
sunshine nnd In shade, she would be true
and loyal to him.
They said no more; there were no wild
raptures over this solemn betrothal; both
felt too deeply for words. Walter kissed
the white little hand that lay so eonfid-
insly in his own, and then they walked
home slowly through the verdant sunny
The Bohuns of Carlshill were an ancient family. Carlshill Manor, situated
In the most beautiful and picturesque
part of Devonshire, had been the home
of the Bohuns for many generations,
The present Baronet, Sir Thornton
Bohun, was a man of morose and un-
amlable character. Quite early in life he
had quarrelled with his only brother,
Clarence, tbe father of Walter; and,
though the younger brother hnd tried to
bring about a reconciliation, the Baronet
declined It; and, then poor Clarence, on
bis death-bed, sent to Implore his haughty brother to forget the past and take
charge of his young wife and their little
son. Sir Thornton paid not the slightest
heed to his message.
The cause of their quarrel was nover
known. It was said that both had loved
the same girl, and that the younger
brother, having been the moro fortunate
wooer, had thus Incurred the deadly
hatred of the elder. -���
When Clarence died, his widow, with
her only child, retired to the little village
of Oulston. She could no longer afford
to dwell In a large town, for Mr. Bohun
bad been unnblo to make any provisions
lor bis wife; and sbe hod nothing but a
small allowance which she received from
tbe Baronet. The Carlshill estates were
however entailed aud the harsh and
moody Sir Thornton had never' married;
Walter was consequently the heir. Hit
prospects were indeed bright���for the income of the reigning Bohun was above
ten thousand per annum���but hit present position wat one of comparative
Sir Thornton Bohun never took the
least notice of his young heir and nephew, though bo did onoe express a hope
that tbe boy would be educated as a
gentleman, and not as a charity-school
child. This amiable speech having
reached the ears of Mrs. Bohun, that
lady made every effort to secure for her
ton the best edncatlon It was possible to
get. With her limited means the oould
not of course tend him to college; but
she did all that lay In her power to
remedy that deficiency. In the little secluded village to which she had retired
resided a very learned clergyman. The
boy was placed under his tuition, and,
being a sharp intelligent lad, he made
rapid progress In his studies. Thanks to
his mother'! oare, Walter excelled In
lighter accomplishments at well at In
those what were more solid; he painted
with no little skill, he could play well
and sing obarmlngly; and to these advantages were added a sound' constitution, a mind cultivated and refined, a
quick vivid fanoy, and a passionate love
of the beautiful.
Sir Thornton would have given much
for tho powor to disinherit the son .of the
brother he had never forgiven i but, as
this oould not be, ho revenged himself

littlo old woman with a sharp oracked
voice; tnd there wus Mrs, Hamilton,
tho mother of Florence,
Mrs, Hamilton belonged to n good old
family, but a very Impoverished one.
Sho was a lady of graceful presenee,
dignified yot gontlo, accomplished and
amiable. In the earlier years of her widowed life sho had retired to Uulston,
and devoted herself entirely to tlio care
nnd education of her daughter; and
Floreneo had amply rcpulal her mother's
anxious devotion. The disposition of the
girl was as amiable ns her Intellect was
cultivated. But beneath tho gentle
graceful manner there was a depth of
passionate love, a capability of suffering,
that one would hardly have expected. In
so delicate a girl. There were steadfast
faith, constancy, and hernlo endurance;
there was too a world of tenderness that
Walter Bohun's love had called Into life.
Mrs; Hamilton saw with pleasure the
affection thnt was gradually springing
up between her daughter and the heir of
tho Bohuns, She llkod and esteemed the
young man for his Intellectual powers
and his many sterling qualities. For
these alone she would gladly have given
him her daughter; but tlio prospective
advantages of wealth and position hnd
weight with her also. There wos a sonse
of satisfaction In tbe thought that her
child would move In a sphere of life that
wus her own. Florence wus In every way
fitted for the position that awaited her,
and the mother rojolced that her child's
fair fuoe, her accomplishments, and her
tweet obaraoter would not always be
hidden In that obscure little village.
Mrs, Hamilton was not worldly; hut
she was proud of her daughter, and perhaps somewhat ambitious for her future
She did not value Walter's lovo for the
worldly advantages his affection would
bring; but those advantages were a pleasing addition to what she felt to bo his
natural worth. When therefore Walter
brought Florence home on that summer
evening, aud, with many blushes and
muoh confusion, asked her consent to
his ono day making the young girl his
wife, Mrs. Hamilton gave it gladly, rejoicing in the fair prospect that opened
before her beloved ehlld.
At that time Walter was motherless.
Mrs. Bohun had lived to sen her son all
that she oould wish. Sho died however
before the wealth that was one day to be
his fell to him; At her dooth Sir Thornton, for once obliged to take some little
notice of his heir, wrote to "Doctor Marsh
nnd asked him to uct as guardian to
Walter refusing even then, when the
young fellow seemed alone In the world,
to assist him beyond continuing the
allowance which Mrs. Bohun had received. So,at the time when Walter asked
Florence to be his wife, he was an Inmate of the Rectory.
It was perhaps not strange that young
Bohun had fallen in love with Florence
Hamilton, He was so lonely and sbe to
kind and gentle. She sympathized with
his sorrows and helped him to ondure a
monotonous life of which ho wat well-
nigh tired.
Glowing with pride at his success,
Walter told the Rector what ho had done,
and was pleased to hear that worthy
man's approval. He had ac-fid wisely,
the Rector said, for Florence Hamilton
would adorn any station; bnt he strongly advised him to keep the engagement
a profound secret for the present, feeling
sure, from his knowledge of the Baronet's peculiar character, that any mention
of the matter would entail most disagreeable consequences on Mrs. Hamilton and
her daughter.
And so lt was arranged that the solemn betrothal should not,, be made public
The lovers were Inexpressibly happy with
a quiet deep happiness, and as the calm
summer days passed their love gained in
Walter continued hit Studies under
Doctor Marsh, being anxious to fit himself for the position that would one day
lie his and, when the day's work was
ended, the evening was devoted to Florence, In the summer-time they wandered
among the fields and lanes; In the winter they snug and rend together in Mrs.
Hamilton's cosy drawing-room. Walter
Intended remaining ono year longer at
Oulston; nnd then, If his nncle still refused to acknowledge him, he had detet-
mined to try to mako a position for himself. He felt that he oould not endure bis
present quiet oalm existence muoh longer. He decided tbat he would wale no
longer for what another man had to leave
him, but would strike out boldly for
himself: and many a pleasant hour be
spent with Florence arranging the futnre
that smiled so brightly before them.
Between the village of Oulston and
the wood at some little distance from It
there stood on the brow of a steep hill
the residence for many miles around���
Burgh Hall, the seat of the De Burghs.
There had been a pitiful tragedy there.
Hubert de Durgb, the present Baronet,
hnd spent the greater part of hit youth
in travelling. In wandering through
Spain he met with a beautiful Andalu-
slan gipsy-girl, So bewltchlngly lovely
was she that Sir" Hubert put aside all
consideration of his position and married
her. It was a strange union, yet they
appeared to be exceedingly happy. Within
one year after their marriage they returned to Burgh Hall, the gipsy-girl
transformed into a stately lady not unworthy In face and figure to form one of
the long line of Ladles De Burgh. A little
child, a girl Inheriting her mother's
Spanish loveliness of face had Increased
their happiness. Sir Hubert had named
her Inez, alter his wife.
Lady De Burgh, before the met with
her husband, had been for three yean
betrothed to the son of the head of her
tribe, an Andaluslan, who loved passionately the beautiful gipsy-girl. Her
treachery half maddened him, and he
swore to be revenged if it cost him hit
One bright summer day Lady De
Burgh was found lying dead in the little
fir wood behind the Hall; and, although
every effort was made to discover the
murderer, the search proved fruitless.
From that time his English home wat
unendurable to Sir Hubert. He left the
place, taking with him a few old servants and his little daughter; and from
that hour the home of the De Burghs
began gradually to go to rntn. Grass
grew in the court-yard; the gardens,
once the admiration uf all the county,
were overrun with weeds and brambles;
deer ran wild in the undulating park
that was bounded by Charnley Forest.
The Hall Itself looked even more desolate than the grounds. Tho windows that
once gleamed with lights were now
closed and boarded up; a weird desolation seemed to brood over the whole
It was twenty years slnoe Sir Hubert
had fled from the scene of his sorrow,
and tbe ponderous doors of the Hall had
nover been opened since. AU recollection
of tbo Baronet had nearly died away, for
those whom he left young were now on
the shady side of lifo, while the children
ho had known had become men and
The fir wood behind the Hall was a
favorite walk with Florence and Walter.
A little hrook ran murmuring through it
and the fairest wild-bowers  grew there;

"Wonders will never cease!" snld tho
Rector to Walter one morning, "What
do you think this letter tells mer"
"I oould never guess," answered thn
young man "Perhaps my uncle is married, and writes good-naturedly to say
that ho has a son and heir."
"It Is oven more wonderfnl than that.

An upholsterer is coining down from
London,and tbo Hall Is to bo thoroughly

friend of mine who met Sir Hubert and
his daughter in Italy two years sinoe told
rae that Miss De Burgh was tho most
beautiful girl he had ever Been. She will
not bo very rich though, I should Imagine, for the estate Is entailed and goes to
a distant cousin."

told Walter; "It was really palnfnl to tee

A Kingston Lady Testifies to Her Experience In the Use of Milburn's
Heart and Nerve Pills.
People who suffer from any disease or
disorder of the heart nervous system,
such as Palpitation, Skip Beats, Smothering or SinkingSensations, Sleeplessness,
Weakness, Pain in the Head, etc., cannot afford to waste time trying varioua
remedies, which have nothing more to
back up their claims than the bold assertions of their proprietors.
These diseases are too serious to permit of your experimenting with untried
remedies. When you buy Milburn's
Heart and Nerve Pills, you know yon
have behind them the testimony of thousands of Canadians who have been cured
by their use. One of these is Mrs. A.
w. Irish, 91 Queen Street, Kingston,
Out., who writes as follows 1
" I have suffered for some years with
a smothering sensation caused by heart
disease. The severity oi Ihe pains in
my heart caused me much suffering. I
wat also very nervous, and my whole
system was run down and debilitated.
"Hearing of Milburn's Heart and'
Nerve Pills being a specific for these
troubles, I thought I would try them, and
therefore got a box at McLcod's Drug
"They afforded me great relief, having
toned up my system and removed the
distressing symptoms from which 1' suffered. I can heartily recommend these
wonderful pills to all sufferers from
heart trouble."

Wlnfred Sclaofaeld, of Gaspereau. N. S., Tells
How He Obtained a Speedy and
Permanent Cure.
From Ha' Acadian, Wolfvlllo, K. S.
Tho ninny cases brought to his notice
of residents in this vicinity being cured
from physical disorders through the
agency of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
have created iu tho mind of tho Acudien
representative a aincero belief in the
healing powers of this' remedy. Yet
withal ho wns a littlo incredulous' tho
other day when told of a young mnn
who had been cored of a very serious
and deplorable disease by tho use of
only somo two boxes of those little
miracle workers. It seemed impossible
that such a remarkable healing could
be wrought even by Dr, Williams'
Pink Pills iu such short order. Accordingly ho wus possessed of a strong
desire to investigate. Mr. Winfrcd
Sohoficld, of Gaspereau,was the address
given ns by om- informant, and were
not long in hunting him up. Wo
fonnd Mr. Schofleld to be 11 bright
yonug man of about twenty yours of
ago and of moro than ordinary intelligence His air of candor and straightforwardness dispelled any doubts we
may havo hud. In a very few words he
stated to ns his case. "Two years ago,"
he said, "I was taken with un attack of
St. Vitus Dance. Sometimes when nt
work I fonnd that my fingers would all
at onco straighten out and I wonld be
compelled to drop anything I was holding. Ono day I was using an axo when
seized with one of these attacks. Tho
axe slipped from my minds and in-full
ing struck my foot und gave it a nasty
out. After that yon can depend upon
it I left axes alone-, and it was not long
before I hnd to givo 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 in order to get relief, bnt I
got no better. At last one day a neigh
bor of mine, Mr. Fred Fielding, wbo
had been cured by the use of Dr. Wil
Hums' Pink Pills, udvised me to give
them 11 trial, offering to pay for them
himself if they did not help me. ' As it
turned ont ho was safe enough in making the offer. I followed his advice,
but had scarcely begun to uho them
when I begun to feel very *mu3.i better.
After using two boxes I was perfectly
cured and have never been troubled
with tho complaint since. I am confident that to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
alone I owe my ouie.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills create new
blood, build up the nerves, and thuH
drive disease from tho system. In hnn
drr di of oases they havo om-ed after all
other medicines havo failed, thus establishing tho claim that they aro u marvel
among the triumphs of modern medical
science. The geuuino Pink Pills are
sold only in boxes, bearing the full
trademark "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills

imposition by refusing any pill thnt

Once, for a few minutes, I thought it
was all over with me. Tbo flames
sprang from the middle cf the block,
on the east sido of Wells street between
Washington and Rundolpb, to the middle of the block between Randolph and
Lake.streets. Here a remarkable thing
happened. At the northwest comer of
Wells and Lake streets I stopped for a
moment to catch my breath and to look
back. At the southeast corner there
was a boot and shoe shop, which had a
glass front on the rear alley, similar to
that on tbe street front, but not so elaborate. The fire struck this ulley front
with a force that swept tho boots uud
shoes through the shop and iuto tho
street in a flash. A tungue of flume shot
out, rolled across the street and kindled
a tar kettle and a barrel, such ns pavers
use, bringing with it n shower of boots
and shoes. Almost at the -mine instant
tho fire threw itself against n hat factory, a few doors east of the boot and
shoe shop. It hit tbe rear of the build

the bats flew up into tho air liko spray.
.Onr Immense Railway System.
The railway system in tbe United
States employs 3(1,000 locomotives, iii,
000 passenger cars and 8,000 mail aud
baggage cars. These figures seem large
till the number of freight cars is stated,
which is 1,350,000. A passenger train
consisting of locomotive, tender, bag
gage and six passenger cars, with their
contents, is estimatd to weigh abont
184 tons. Freight trains sometimes
reaoh a weight of 650 tons. An ordinary
passenger car oosts from $4,000 to $0,
,000 and a sleeping car anywhere from
$10,000 to 130,000, The system, with
its gigantio equipment, is practically
the growth of a single geuerution. With

Pills Gave Her Health.

From HlmiUr  Dlseaso���Dottd'a
Kidney. Ilia.WlllCiire I laaani
Toronto, Dec 5���There are thousands of girls in thiscity who are passing the best years of their lives in sickness and misery, when they should be
enjoying the blessings of health,
strength, and vig*.r.
The observer who will watch the
crowds of girls and young women
streaming homeward every evening,
after their hard day's work, cannot
but be struek hy the many faces-
young faces -that h mid bs rosy with
the glow of health, with sparkling
eyes, and well-rounded cheeks, but
whioh are pale and careworn, with
dark circles round eyes that have lost
their brightness.
A glance is enough to show that
these tired and worn-out gills are suffering. And such a spectacle is doubly
���ad, because there is no need for it.
Dodd'a Kidney Pills would bring the
brightness back to the eyes, the bloom
to the cheek, the firmness to the step
ths vigor to the entire body.
No other medicine on earth can produce such astonishingly beneficial re-
sul s in these esses, ns Dodd's Kidney
Pills can and wiil.
Miss Mary Hinsdale, 73 Esther
siraet, has proveal the truth of this
statement. She says: ''I have been
u suffer) r from female weakness, N.-rv-
ous, and Livi'i-.Tronhle, and doctored
without derivinii and henfit. I began
using Dodd's Kidney Pill*, and my recovery dated from that time. They
have cured mo thoroughly."
A trial will apeeidly convince any sufferer that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
positively restore her to health.

Two Pointed (jiuistloiia Answered.
What is the use of making a bettor
article t hau your competitor if you can
not get a lamer price I'or j>?
Ana.���As there is no difference in
the price the public will buy only the
better, so that wbileour profits may
be smaller on a single sale ihey will lie
much greater in lhe aggregate.
How can yon get the public to know
your make is ibe liest?
If both articles ure brought prominently before the public both are certain
to be tried nnd the public will very
quickly pass judgement on them and
use only the better one.

honor to the memory of Scotland's
patron saint, Si. Andrew.
It was the tit st St. Androw's dinnor

the occasion a success, which it undoubtedly was.

Iu responding to the latter, Mr. Gal-
hraiih touched upon thn early days of
place, spoke most encouragingly of its
prospects und gave those present an
insight into what was being done in
tha interests of Windermere, fur which
he predictcal a great future.
The time was then passed most
pleasantly in music, song, dance and
good natursd pleasantry.
During the course of the evening
Messrs. Ben Abel, Joseph Young. Jas.

During a lull in tht festivities, Mr.
Brucs rose aad proposed the health of
Mr. Goldie, which was received uith
the greatest enthusiasm and warmth.
Mr. Galbraith rising said, that he
could not allow that loast to pass
without testifying to his thorough appreciation of Mr. Goldie's ability, integrity, hune-t and strict sense of justice, which remarks were most heartily
cheered and endorsed by those present.
The "wee sma' hours" were now
creeping in when the health of Messrs.
Taynton k Gordon, proprietors of the
Lakeside Hotel, was proposed and
duly honored, and rightly too. Thoy
had spared no pains to make tbe occasion a success. That they should fesl
proud of having provided such an
excellent repast goes without saying.
It was perfect in every particular and
would have reflected credit apou' many

cities. But then they always give
good meals.

party broke up after having spent a
most enjoyable evening. The success
of this dinner will no doubt make it
an annual affair.

seemed to spand a very pleasant even

treated to many more of a similar kind
during the winter.     Net proceeds $15.
On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 29, the

If They Fail to Banish Disease.
Paine's Celery Compound, Earth's Great
Medical Prescription, "Makes
Sick People Well."
Another short montli and the year
1898 will come to a cloae. As the year
ends, many loved and dear ones will
pass away, severing ties and associations that will bring untold sorrow,
agony and mourning. The victims
will come from all clases and conditions
of our population.
While it is true we must all leave
this transitory life, it ought to be well
understood that our years of life on
earth should be threescore and ten or
fourscore years.
When young snd middle aged men
and women fail to reach a good old age
thejfault is theirs in ninety cases out of
every hundred. It is safe to assert
they bate violated the laws of nature
and hare allowed disease to enchain
Years ago tht attention of that celebrated medical expert, Dr. Phelps,
was specially directed to the class referred to who die in middle age. He
realized the fact that something far
beyoud the ordinary remedies and prescriptions of the day was required lo
meet the varied conditions of suffering
humanity. His wonderful life giving
prescription. Paine's Celery Compound
was the boon bestowed on the hosts
who suffer from r he common disesse
-penalties of nature for transgressions
of its wise laws.
Dr. Phelps found that nervous dis��
eases, blood troubles, liver and kid.
ney coinplaints.rheumatisin, neuralgia
und dyspepsia were dragging thousands to the gravo tvtry year, not''
withstanding all the wtll directed tf.
forts of conscientious medicul men.
This marvellous prescription of Dr.
Phelps' was a revelation to the world
in (hat ic cured desperate and long
standing cases of disease that had
baffled the best medical skill.
Since its advent, Paine't Ctltry
Compound has saved tent of thousands, and is still conquering disease-
every day. No other medicine known
to man has ever received such Haltering notices and testimonials from prominent men and women and from tht
entire press of the land. Ic is tbt on*
and Ouly life saverin tvtry ease of disease and suffering; it defeata death
when tbe physician ia unablt to savt.
It ta to this marvellous banisher ot
disease-Paine's Colery Compound-
that we would direct the attention of
all who are ruu down, tired, sleepless,
nervous, debilitated and weak-avnip-
toms of the diaeasa we havt referred te
above. It will quickly giva to tvtry
ailing man and woman that vigor;
