At no time has Golden had a bright'
���r prospect before it then now. Tht
fact that this town it being mad* tbt
Government head-quarters for North
East Kootenay it doing much to help
It. Golden has also been made the
head-quarters of the big bisiness of
the Columbia River Lumber Company.
The upper country it forging ahead
tnd Golden it the river port ind provide! the beat means of communication
with that txtsusivt and rich tract cf
country. Tht mineral prospects of
late have vastly improved and good
locations have been made so handy to
transportation that they justify development. Capitalists are devoting attention to this district and are now
prepared te take up anything that ia
sufficiently promising. More development work of a bona, fide character
will be done this year in North East
Kootenay than in any previous year
in the history of tha district. The
copper boom is helping things out,
and for a copper-gold oamp it will be
hard to beat North East Kootenay.
That store house of wealth in the
north is also being opened to enterprise,
and Golden is the gateway to its richis
and resources. The attention now
being devoted to Tete Jaune Cache is
but the beginning of a great migration
to tbe the north, with its agricultural
aid pastoral areas, its placer gold
fields, its gold, silver, lead, copper
and mica deposits, and its wealth of
timber. We believe tbat Golden is
destined to become a great outfitting
point for the north and that there ia
not another point along the railway
line that hat the same advantages
Golden it also destined to be an important railway centor, where will
converge the lines that will open up
th. gnat western valley of the Rocky
��� Mountains, extending from the Ameri-
um boundary to Alaska. People have

A Busy Season In Prospect.
Sine* assuming tii* position of Ste-
ritary-Treasurer of tb* Columbia
River Lumber Company, Mr. P. W.
Jones, formerly holding the responsible josition of Asssistant General Man*
sger of the C.P.R. at Winnipeg, haa
been sparing no effort to put new life
and method into the business of the
Company, with the result that the
Company's mills at Beaver, Golden
and Kualt will have a larger output
this season than any other lumbering
concern in British Columbia, The
mill at Golden hae been entirely remodelled and fitted up for the most
part with a brand new plant manufactured by the Hamilton Manufacturing
Co. of Peterborough. The motive
power is supplied from two boilers
each of 150 horse-power and two en
gi lies, one 70 and the other 60 horse
power, aggregating 180 h.p. The
boilers are substantially built in brick
on solid foundation and the enginee
are set in powerful framing. J. Moore
is again in charge of the engine-room
this season. Going into the milling
department one is surprised to see the
array of substantial belting carrying
the power from tha engines to the
various points required. Of the new
plant tha mast prominent machine
built en the ground floor is ths steam
nigger, an ingenious contrivance
which, hy lha manipulation of a lever
i i the hands of the sawyer, raises the
log, turns it louuil as often as required
and presses it into position on the
frame of the travelling carriage, ready
for cutting. C. Pearce, who has such
an excellent record as a sawyer, is at
his old place, but his responsibility is
doubled, as, with one hand on the
driving rod of the steam nigger, and
the other ou motor lever of the travelling saw-bench, he guides the logs Into
position and gnagea 1 lie cult to be
taken out of each. J. Wood occupiee

To judge the performance of a graduate uf the Toronto Conservatoire re-
quires more wit than is usially
possessed by the ordinary critic. It
must suffice to say that in the three
selections allotted to ber Miss Devlin
exhibited a delicacy of touch, a power
of expression, yet withal a vivacity
and control of the instrument, rarely
witnessed. Ths rendering of Mendelssohn's "Hunting Song" called forth aa
an encore a Military March by Gounod,
that of the "Chachoucha Caprice" a
Cavalry March by Spindle, both played in the same masterly style, as were
also the accompaniments to all the
songs. Of th* vocalists the palm
must be given to Mrs. Robbins. to
whose cultured voice it was a pleasure
to listen. The encores of ber two
songs were anawered by "When Love
is Kind," and a Gavotte from Micnon.
"Mary of Argyle" was somewhat high
for Mr. Mulira's voice. But his expressive rendering of "TheHoly City,"
more suited to his compass, obtained
the well-merited encore '-Rocked in the
Cradle of ths Deep," which again
brought out bis strongest poiut, viz..
his low notes. Of Mr. Plowright's
two songs the second one showsd evident signs of his recognition, not ap.
parent in the first, of the favor of the
audience, resulting in u mure spirited
and expressive rendering of "The
King's Highway," an encore for which
was answered by an an evident favor
ite, -'Jack's ilie Boy for me." Sullivan's beautiful glee "O, Hush Thee
My Baby," was a fair attempt at glee*
singing, but showed signs of scanty
practise. The last item on the pro-
gramme, the comedy, "Six Cups of
Chocolate," was a fit ending to a successful entertainment. The plot in a
few words is this : Six young ladies,
secretly in love with one gentleman,
meet in the house of one of them; they
proceed to confide their secret to each
other; one reads a letter from the
lover, which is found to be couched in
language identical witb one which
each haa received ; all with marked
signs of anger and soorn siga a letter
of repudiation returning his letters; all
rush to the window to see the lovei
passing by, and amid groans of indig
nation the curtain falls. The perform
ance of this little comedy was said by
an eye-witness to be unsurpassed by
any amateur players in tbe east. It
repeatedly elicited much laughter from
a delighted audience. On the whole
Golden is to be congratulated upon
counting among its residents the possessors of such musical and histrionic
talant. as to enable thim to retain for
two hours the pleased attention of an
admiring audience.

of thie enterprise to Golden may be
judged by tbe fact thut the Company
cleared from the canyon of Kootenay

and made it a great deal safer for navigation. The principal work done was
olaiting out a big rock which waa

Field.���Golden Affords the
Best Route and Outflttlnj
On Tuesday afternoon, nra.snting th* *rl*
dences oi a hard trip, Fred Holliday, F. Mor-
in and J. Longtin arrived in Golden frem
Tete Jaune Cache where they had spent th*
winter prospecting Swift Current Creek.
The party tolls a very different story from
Mr. Price, and as the members of the party
are well-known bore tbeir statements receive
thn utmost credit. The party left Golden
with their pack train on Sept. 2:'nd and were
24 davs in reaching the Cache, having had
to double track in order to take Price and
Evan's outfit along as well as their iiwn. But
for this double packing they could have gnoe
in in half the timo and we venture tn ray
there is not another route to Tete Jaun*
Cache that csn bs covered in anything like
tho sum* time as that, from Goldon. Th*
party reached Swift Current on Oct. 19th sad
set to work to prospect the Creek,which woik
was continued till Dec lmh. when the freezing up ofthe creek prevented further work.
Excellent prospects were obtained, showing
from 5 to 30 cents to the pan. No bedrock
work wss done, hut the depth to bedrock
where the party located at the foot of the
falls is net very great* not mor* than 18 feet
ami in some places thn bed rock can b* seen
sticking up through the bed of the creek.
Tlio party located for themselves and friends
about a mile from whir* the creek joins th*
Fraser. Tke best prospects were got bel*W
the canyon, the wash running 16 to 20 cents
to the pan. Messrs. Ullock, Hoble, Barry,
Hpton, Mitchell-Innes and Dainard bar* th*
best, ground. Tbo gold taken from rim-rock
was very coarse, and thero is every prospect
of rich ground being got at bed-rock. The
party located 600 feet nl ground and towards
the mouth of tbe creek gold was also found
but was fine. The creek in rough, with big
boulders, and some of it will be hard to handle
but a good deal nt it' ens be wnrktd at any
time. High water is experienced in July
and August from tho thawing of the glaciers.
The party put up a cabin and bunt a dam
to divert water for washing, ran a cut to
drain the ground, whipsawed lumber for
sluice-bexes and riffles, and got all in readiness for work when they bad to ceine out fer
They had a hard trip out. They wore able
to bring the horses nnlv 40 miles this sido of
the Cache, which they left on May 1st. At
Dawson Creek, 10 miles beyond Wood River,
tbey came on deep snow and had to leave the
horses where there*) was feed; improvise
snowshoes and tmnin the rest nf the way to
Donald. They left ths Cacheon may 1st and
met Archdeacon McKay and auother man on
the 5th. The Archdeacon then expected to
reach the Cache in four days, and was getting along well.
On the way out the party found good foed
fur horses for a distance ef 100 miles but the
snow was doep on tho summit and parties
will not be able to cross thnt with horses he-
fore June 1st, when messrs. Holliday, Morin
and Longtin will start on the returu journey.
There is abundance of gold-bearing quArlz
in the vicinity of Tete Jaune, the gold being
visible to ths naked eye, and this quarts
covers nn area ot six or seven miles. The
formation changes 40 miles this side of Teto
Jaune Cache and the party reckon this country has a great future before it as a quartz
mining field.
There are'other creeks there which show
good prospects aud on which no gronnd has
yet been located. These srei Saptiste
('reek, 14 miles l-olow Swift Current, and
Quartz Creek, 7 milos further on. On both
of these creeks colors worth 10 to 15 cents to
tbe pan can be got right along.

The mystery of womanhood is full
of deep unanswerable enigmas. Why
should women be compelled to suffer
simply because they are women? Why
is it that the source of their highest joys
is at the same time the cause of their
greatest wretchedness, The very attributes which make it
possible for women
to be happy wives
and mothers also render them liable to the
utmost physical misery
and pain.
The sufferings of
body and mind caused
by some weakness of the distinctly feminine organs are so almost universal
among women that the question might
well be asked: " Is this Nature's punishment for the -crime of being a woman ?''
The true answer is Nol These sufferings are neither natural nor necessary.
They would not exist if the organism
was healthy. No woman ought to endure such troubles. There is no need of
it. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is
a perfect and positive cure for feminine
weakness and disease.
Help is at hand for those who choose to
take it. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription will infallibly cure womanly ills.
It is designed for that purpose alone. It
acts directly nnd quickly on the organs
involved and restores them to health and
vigor. This is proven by the triumphant
record of tens of thousands of cures. It
is successful when all else has failed. After the abhorrent local treatments of the
doctors have proven useless, the "Favorite Prescription" does its marvelous
work, bringing comfort and happiness.
It is the one thing that can always be
depended upon.
It gives health and strength to the special organs and nerve-centres; heals inflammation ; stops weakening drains;
promotes functional regularity, and restores the normal, vigorous and painless
condition which Nature intended.
It is the only medicine of its kind invented by an educated and experienced
physician. It is tlle only medictne whicli
makes baby's coining safe and comparatively painless. It has had a larger sale
than any other like medicine. Get it at
your druggist's and do not be persuaded
to take a substitute.
" When I wrote to you about two years
ago, I was indeed au invalid," writes
Mrs. Ellie Mabus, of Malms, Choctaw
Co., Miss. " I could not describe all my
suffering. At times I had a sensation of
bearing down weight low down across
me. I also suffered a great deal with my
back. I could not walk any great distance without pain, Had constant drain,
a frequent desire to urinate; also had
palpitation of the heart. After receiving your advice, began treatment with
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and
'Golden Medical Discovery.' I kept
this up several months and am now in
the best of health. Many thanks to you
and your wonderful niedicines."
"I have been taking your medicines,
and they always help me," writes Mrs.
Sallie Whitaker, of Liver-more, McLean
Co., Ky. " Mine was a very bad complicated case of female trouble, but 1 do
believe I would have been in my grave
if it had not been for your wonderful
medicines. I have taken ' Favorite Prescription,' 'Golden Medical Discovery'
and ' Pleasant Pellets.' 1 suffered mostly
with my head and lower bowels, especially at my monthly periods. I would
have to go to bed ana use hot applications ana drink all.kinds of teas. I had
three of the best physicians I could get.
One doctored mc for twelve months and
1 was worse when he quit than I was
when I began with him. The ot'ier miiy
helped me temporarily. I will always
speak well or" D:\ Tierce's medicines,
and will heart!..* recommend them to all
suffering women."

Account of the Strike.
Buffalo, May 12.���Tbe strike among
the members of the Freight Handlers
union at this point is gradually assuming 11 serious aspect. There oro aoout
3,000 of these men pledged not to work
for any contractor and many of these
are now on strike. Originally a few
of them went out iu sympathy with
the grain shovellers, aud now it is believed that iu oase the sooopers gain
their point they will still remain out
nntil their own dittiuulties have been
satisfactorily settled
Several managers of transportation
lines said that if the comraetors dm
not qnickly demonstrate their ability
to do the work af loading and unloading freight boats tbey wonld be compelled to devise other means of relieving the congestion of truffle at tliii*
point. At tbe Lehigh Valley docks tin
company called in a lot of yardmen
and other employees to take the placer
ot the strikers.
At tbe Central Erie and other bi|i
docks the work was practically at u
standstill, the few freight haudler-
who were at work being non-union
men. The freight handlers demand
an increase of wages from 25 oeuts an
hour, the present rate, to SO cents an
honr for work ontside of the freight
houses and 20 cents an hour for inside
work. They also ask for the abolition
of the contract system.
The grain sliovelers' strike'is Brill in
existence but there are many iudicu
tions thnt paint to an early settlemeni
of the difficulty. Tho strikers are being strongjy urged to aocept tha eon
cessions offered to them by the Lake
Carriers' association and it is thonghi
that they will do so before the end ol

Th* Intelligent Jury.
Law court stories were especially attractive to Hicks, and he told many of
them. His great story, which was almost a dramatic sketch, wus of the acquittal of a Cornish doctor who was
charged with the murder of his mother-
in-law by mixing arsenic with a dish of
rabbits and onions, which he gave her
for supper. The setting of the conrt.
the swearing of the jury, the speeches
of counsel, und the judge's charge were
all related by Hicks with marvelous humor.
The climax to the fnn was the confabulation of the jury as to the verdict
they shonld give, und their individual
reasons for returning a verdict of acquittal���from the juryman who "didn't
hold with old 'omun eating rabbits and
onions for snpper" to the juryman who
declared that "it wasn't a ha'po'th of
odds to him, and 'twas bnt un old 'om*

The latter then started from the weigh*

nothing of a very serions nature, although the side of his face and his

The damage was caused by the
breaking of tho shaft to the separator
close to the howl and leaving the bowl

pieces, and it was these which did the

"Whilst we were living in Toronto
at No. 99 McGilJ atreet, my wife took
ill ih the autumn of 1894, and had such
racking pain* that she could hardly
stir. One of the heat specialists in Tomato waa called iu and he . diagnosed
tke case one of acute inflammatory
rheumatism. Hit prescriptions were
given and he laid that the oate wu a
viry tevere one and it .would be a wonder if her joints did not become misshapen. What thit eminent phytician
predicted came true. At the end of a
month my wife was worse than ever,
and, her wrlttt and knuckles /vere
twitted greutely out of thapo. She
was so disheartened that thi would
weep at' the slightest, provocation. She
waa loath to stay in bed, and had to
be assisted to ariae and dress every
movement giving her in|��nsi pain.
During all the ensuing winter this
���tate of thinge continued, iho gradually becoming worse in tpite of the
etrong medicines and the Iotione that
the doctor prescribed for her. We
tried in vain tbe raauage treatment
and the electrical treatment. My wife
would moan nearly all uight with the
pain. She wat unable to hold tht
baby, and even could not bear to have
a perion point a finger at her. I feared that the-apring would ue my wife
under the loci, and you may be sum I
wat terrible affected by it All thit
time we continued to givo her the dootor'! treatment and tnedicinu, nntil
finally ray wife ttoutly refuted to take
any mere of the drugt. From that
out the began to improve, and one
evening I waa astonished to see her
coming to mitt me when I arrived
home from the office. "Why" I laid
"the doctor ie doing you no good after
all.'| "Not at all," ihe laid and entiled.
Then .the produced a little round wooden box and held it up. "I have a great
secret to tell yon," the laughed. "Unknown to you I have been taking Dr.
