doubt lhat Mr. W. C. Weill will take
steps to represent tb ihe Government

Owlug to th* way in which Field is
building up, tha Government should
take stept to clear and form in the
spring a street along the frontage of
the Dominion Government block, aud
put in t drain to improve the sanitary
condition ot the towntit*.
Reports hare been circulated that
Premier Semlin and Dr. HcKcohuie
htd resigned tor similar reasons to
those of other member*, but then
���ttttmeuti are m*r*ly canard*.
Tha Semlin Government continued
to gain ground and Price "Ellison,
who represent* Vernon,and ha* hitherto been understood to be a follower of
the Turner party, ha* declared himself
in favor of th* policy of th* Semlin
Government. At thi* rat* t Turntrit*

The bye-elections for Vancouver,
rendered necessary by the resignation
of Ur. Tisdall, and for Victoria, by tbe
resignation* of Messrs. Hall and Mc-
Phillipt, will take place on th* 23rd
in the eveat of a poll, the notninttiona
baing called for th* preceding day.
Mr. Titdall will probably bt re-elected
by acclamation, aud Meters. Hall and
McPhillips, wh* are both Opposition,
will be opposed by Co|. Gregory tnd
Mr. Belyea for the Government. Ex-
premier Turner and the Hon. J. F.
Hume bad alto to resign owing to tbe
aaiuactua* as th* others-receiving

difficulty a settlement wat arrived at
by which, instead of mileage run, the
driv��n should be paid according to

at 60c. an hour, subject to confirmation by the head official* at Montreal.

A professor, famous for his absent-
mindedness, invented a parachute. His
confidence in his contrivance was so
great that be even sought for an opportunity to try it. In this be erred. It is
all very well for a man to invent parachutes and flying machines to present
to persona he doesn't like, but if ho bas
family ties bo ought never to indulgo
iu experiments. However, tho professor
searched zealously for an opportunity
to test his aerial umbrella. Suooess unhappily crowned his efforts, and it bul-
loon 1st consented to givo him a lift.
On tho appointed day tbo professor
joined the aeronaut, and tbo two men
entered tbo car of tbo balloon, accompanied by tho paracbutic umbrella by
moans of whioh the professor proposed
to Kink softly and safely to tbe earth
from au enormous height.
Tho balloon (.hot upward swiftly.
When tbey wero at au altitude a little
less than ilO.OOO feet, tbe professor suddenly remembered what be was there
for, uud at once climbed out of tbo car
and dropped off before tbe aeronaut
could stop him.
He had dropped 1&,000 feot and was
still dropping, when he remarked to
himself with great disgust:

Advice to an Admiral.
Ho'b  not afraid  of flashing blade  nor
shot that weighs a ton;
He'll face Lhe foe with calm, unflinching eye.
He   never   shims   the   ticry   spot   where

He'll ntop for breakfast where the bul
lets fly,
Uut  this Is on the foaming sea, where
men thn ilajj may rales,
While adulation cannot mar the tnsk.
But when  ho finds  the shores of pence
and overzealons priilae.

Vanity In women is
forgivable. It
was Nature's intention that woman should be
vain of her personal appearance,
aud the woman
who fails of this
fails of her full
womanhood. No
woman should be
s a t i s fi e d to go
through the world
with a complexion made hideous
by unsightly
blotches, pimples
and eruptions.
No woman should
be satisfied to
have a sallow,
sickly complexion,
The remedy for these conditions does not
He iu cosmetics. Skin disease is caused by
impurities iu the blood, and by nervous
disorders due lo weakness aud disease of
tho distinctly feminine organism. Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is tbe
greatest of all known blood-purifiers. It
not only drives all impurities from the life*
stream, but fills it with the rich, life-giving
elements of the food. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription acts directly on the delicate
and Important organs that hear the burdens
of wifehood and motherhood. It makes
them pure, strong, well and vigorous. A
course of these two great medicines will
transform a weak, sickly, nervous, despondent woman, who suffers from unsightly
eruption's of the skin, into a healthy, happy,
amiable companion, with a skin lhat is
clear hnd wholesome. These medicines
are made from herbs aud roots, and contain
no minerals of any description. They simply assist the natural processes of assimilation, secretion aud excretion. Medicine
dealers sell them.
It is a druggist's business to give you, not
to tell you, \yliatvQU want.

An pull a milk pan made'of wool down

learn some language such
As never yet was equaled by the lowest
kind ot Dutch!
The Btrangcst kind of talk, by Jinks, that
mortals over heoral!
It sounds jest like a Scotchman when he's
b'urrln thfoai-1- his beard!
Your clothes tan conversation fixed, then
you must go an git
Bomo shinny sticks, which same are made
on purpose for to hit
A pesky Utile rubber ball, crab apple like
In size
An dark complected, so's you can locate
It as It flics.
That's all*-b'gosh, excuse me, fer It ain't
all, Jest the same!
Z clean forgot tho most excltln thing
that's In the game.
Which Is a kill with dirty face au,freckles you employ
To carry rounal your shinny sticks .an bs
your caddie boy.
Now, havin all your flxln's, you approach
what's called the tee,
Dip down your hand Into a oan, draw out
some mud an see
Tou mold It so's the rubbor ball sits nicely on its crest,
Thori' swing your shinny stick an let your
muscles do the rest.
This, done, you pose a bit an say: "That
.drive? foozled me,
Ofe.se I would havo nlbllcked out to two
���  In less than three!
I'll.take that water hazard, with somo
,   brassle shots between,
IThless that hunker gobbles an I lay dead

Keep up this language an proceed to walk
an walk an walk
Until your "voice is tired an you run clean

Dupuy, who held the office until the
early part ot 1805, when ho retired with

his candidacy for the Presidency of the
Republic was lookod upon with great
favo.\ ;m. Dupuy Is 47 rears old. His
pooplo were poor and held humble  post*
tlons. His father wai a minor official In
the local prefecture. The early oareer of
the now statesman was glrtn to teaching
of philosophy In collegss at Nantua and
Aurlllao, and also at various lyoses. He

years, although I took a great many
remedies to escape from the troubles
which afflicted me.
"However, I got no relief until I
started to take Milburn's .Heart and
Nerve Pills, which I used together with
Laxa-Llver Pills, and now after having
used a few boxes, I am better than I

Wherever mnn is to bo found there

and suffering. Those who have derated their lives to the alleviation of
���hi- suffering and bodily weakness of
htunati organization are sm-ady benefactors of their kind, nud deserve tho
���muse of all mankind. For special
honor.: iu this lino may bo pointed out
tlio discoverer of that wonderful rom-
���jdy, Dr. Wiliains' Pink Pills for Pale
Poople, Recently the case of Mrs,
Maggie Brunette, of Chichester, Que.,
tame prominently under the uotiee of
iho Observer repa.rter. He felt it to be
nis duly, ou hearing of Mrs. Brunette's
restoration from prostrate illness to
health,to interview the lady mid record
her experience for the benefit of others
who may need the healing influences of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, Mrs. Brn*
alette's f, rm house was found to be very
.'omfortablo aud even elegant, located
near the base of nn immense hill, an
anttgnurd of the Lanrontiau Mountains.
The reporter was warmly welcomed
and Mrs. Bruueliia said sho was very
glad 10 liuvo mi opportunity to testify
to tho great benefit Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills had conferred upon her. She is
���I*! years of age now. Her husband, thai
late Ohas, Brunette, died 14 yours ago,
amil after his death she worked very
hui-d for some years, with the result
that she betjunie completely run down,
so muoh so tlmt, although quite tall,
she weighed ouly about 90 pounds.
After taking the slightest food she felt
sneli distress that she was compelled to
lie down for hours, beiug so weak that
slin was nimble lo sit up. At last she
thought she must have beeu attacked by
oancer of the stoiunch, so violent were
���ho pains tliat constantly harassed her.
Che consulted (he best physicians and
-pent more thnn a hundred dollars iu
treatment aud medicine, iu addition to
a.iiich she spent nine weeks iu tho bos-
I'ital at Pembroke. But withal sho
.vas ill four years and despaired of ever
being well. Finally she decided to
���tive Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial,
and accordingly sho procured six boxes.
Although they benefited lier almost
from the time she began tnJdug them,
ahe kept on taking the pills until she
had taken sixteen boxes, and then felt
hat she was completely cured, the pills
accomplishing in three months what
i'our years of medical treatment had
failed to do. From that time, nearly
threo years ago, Mrs. Brunette has beeu
iu ��ood health, needing no medicine.
''You oan seo," snid Mrs. Brunette, ns
the, reporter was departing, "that I am
in perfect health, I attend to all my
household work aud tho dairy and
poultry, and huve a large number of
���tows to milk, I never fail to say a
-���ood word for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills

At ��� meeting at tba convention Ol
ihe Oppositioa party, held at the Columbia Hell on Saturday night,
Mr. William McNeish presided. Donald was represented by Messrs. Pitts,
Caldwell and Shaw ; Beaver hy Ur.
Stalker, and Golden by Messrs. Ms-
Neisb, Bemplo aad McDermot. Tha
other portions of the electorate were
unrepresented. It was decided tu ask
Mr. Pitts ol Donald te become a candidate for the bye-election in the interests
of the Opposition party, but we are informed that the matter ol a contest
was not definitely arranged, pending
Mr. Pitts's reply ts tha invitation.
A mooting of tha supporters of tho
Government at Donald was bald at tbe
Oddfe)lows Hall there on Friday
night, when there was a fair attendance,, Mr. T. Dunn, was voted ta the
chair and E. A. Haggen was requested
to ant as Secretary. Messrs. G. E.
Manuel, Palmer, and 8. Hambly ware
chosen delegates from Donald to a
convention ol the. Government party
to be held at Golden to-morrow
It was decided te postpone the formation ol a committee till alter the
nomination ol a eandidate by the convention had been decided.
Mr. Wells briefly addressed the
meeting and said it was a matter tor
congratulation that this meeting had
been convened in each a basin.ss like
manner to elect delegates for the Government convention to be bold tor the
selection pf a eandidate to represeat
tba party. In view of bis own esndi
dature, which bad been very freely
spoken of, he was largely responsible
for the meeting that night. It had
arisen in this way. He took exception to the convention held at Golden
on the occasion ef tha last election because he did not think it was quite
representative enough, and he insistsd
that it should bs a condition on which
he ehould accept nomination that tbe
convention on this occasion should be
thoroughly representative of the whole
constituency He did not wish this
meeting to eloss without expressing
regret at tbe very sad circumstances
which had given occasion for another
election.. Their late representative,
Mr. Neilson, and himself cams ont ol
the laet-election as good friends ss svsr
and tha longer the' contest, lasted the
more appreciation he had of Mr. Neilson. (Cheers.) It was a very painful
thing lor him (Mr. Weils) to lace another election nnder such painful circumstances.       '    ' '���������'���< '-"'
