Increased Duty on Lead.
G. O. Buchanan of Kalso, has an In-
tercetiug letter iu the Kaslo Kootenaian
regarding the lead question, aa follows:
There remains one thing that the Dominion government can do, and should
do, and probably would do at the first
session of parliament if the interests affected and our represeutatives in both
branches of parliament would now make
a long and strong pull for it.
It has been asked for by the boards
of trade, by delegations, by the liberal
convention of this district and many
tines by the Kootcnalan and the time is
now opportune to push the demand to
final acknowledgment. The required
concession ia the increase of tbe duty
upon raw white lead Coming into Canada
from s percent, to 15 per cent. As the
tafia stands the duty upon pig lead is t j
per cent. The duty upon pipesheet,
•hot. etc. is jo to 35 per rent., but that
upon raw white—which is pig-lead subjected to the further process of corrosion
—il S per cent, only under tbe preferential tariff this is reduced to $% per
About one half of the lead used in
Canada comes in in that form, and those
who import it from aboard state tbat if
tht duty waa raised tbey would manufacture it in Canada from Canadian pig.
The duty upon ochres and siennat ia
10 per cent. Upon oxides, umbers and
fire proof paints, 35 per cent; upon
white lead in pulp, not mixed with oil,
»j per ct; upon mixed paint, 35 per ct;
and upon linseed oil, 35 per cent. It
Can be shown tbat the consumer of lead
paints gets no benefit from the low rate
levied upon raw lead, tbe margin saved
being absorbed by the companies that
ail paint in Canada.
Tbe Item has stood neglected so long,
because those engsged in lead production were not ardent politicians. A
change, if made, would probably go into
effect by proclamation and tbe
proclamation would be deferred
until tbe establishment of a refinery
inured the product of an ample
■apply of pig lead at home. But the
prospects of a home market for 13,000
toes of lead instead of 6300 as at present
wonld greatly atimulate tbose having refinery schemes ou hand We admit the
possibility that it wonld be necessary to
ask tbe Dominion government for some
improvement of the Refinery Bonus Act
of last year. But tbis will be in order
when we are able to sbow that a bona
fide attempt to operate a refinery has
been made.

"The strike situation at Nonhport and
Rossland has been presented to the executive board, and has beed 'fully con
sidered in all its details by that bodv.
The Federation is fully aware of and
highly appreciates the splendid stand
maintained by the members of Rossland
and Northport unions In tbis strike up
to the present time, and they can depend upon every assistance, financial
and otherwise being afforded them to
conduct their campaign to a satisfactory
outcome. We have carefully gone over
the whole situation with the officials of
tbe union and have made alt necessary
plana and preparations to continue the
fight until justice is done, and the un'on
laborers at Rossland receive $j per day,
tbe same rate of wages that is paid in
every other camp in Koolenay and
Boundary. We bave no desire to assume
an air of bravado upon the matter, but
we wish to say with the strongest possible emphasis, that we are in a financial
position to maintain the struggle for an
Indefinite period, and our members being so firmly impressed with tbe justice
of their demands, and being fully satis,
fied tbat every honest and unbiased
mind that is to any extent familiar with
the aituation will acknowledge their
right to receive the wage they ask for,
they are determined to stay with tbe
fight until a satisfactory adjustment ia
effected. In this position they will be
supported regardle.it of expense to tbe
fullest extent of tbeir power by the
Western Federation of Miners.
"Any advantage which the company
console themselves with, in the fact tbat
tbey have non-union men in their employ at present, we know to be more
fancied than real. We are satisfied tbat
tbe companies wilt never accomplish results satisfactory to themselves and
their shareholders with incompetent
non-nnion men. Tbe mine managers
know just as well as we do tbat they will
not secure a competent class of mine
and smelter men so long as a strike is
on at their works. They also know that
as soon as the strike is declared off, they
will not experience the slightest ililficul
ty in securiug as competent a class of
workmen as can be fouud.
"The strike will be declared off when
the reasonable requests of tbe unions are
acceded to, bnt not before."

The fobs-lug circular has b-.en Issued to the ahareholdera of the Le Itol
Mining company:
Salisbury Honse, SOth Nov. 1901.
Dear Sir or Madam:
The following cable has been received
from Mr. Frecheville to-day:
"Rotsland, 25th Nov.
Aulltors make profit front mine and
■melting works for tba year ending
June SOth, $535,000, This was used for
Improvement—ill the plant fiist-claas,
I estimate the reserve ot ore at dite

of 8.000 lbs., value per ton (11,75. The
total cost per ton la future ought not
to exceed 89. The lowest level In the
mine, so far as driven, ado wa chute of

Your directors with to give the following explanatory details •Italltan'
eously with the examination of the
mine by Mr. Frechevlle An audit of
the books of the company at Rossland
haa been conducted by Measrs. Price,
Waterhouse &.C1. Their audit shows
a profit for the year ending 40:h Jane.
1901, of 130,576 pounds all of which haa
been expended on Improvements on
your property, the result being that
the mine ll throughly well equipped
with all the most approved modern
machinery and the cauacity of the
smelting works, which are excellent In
construction aud design, and fitted wltb
all the latest labor saving appliances:
has been largely Incfeasei.
Tne 9)0 foot level, which is the lowest level yet opened up In the mine,
appear to us to be highly satlsfacory.
The lodes as far as tested being of
good width and high grade.
Mr. Frecheville In a letter to the
board aays that the pay chota on this
level started with a width of IS feet
and la the 170 feet of drlvage done It has
opened to a width of 35 feel in theface
This of course Is a matter of the Most
vlul Importance! In estimating the
future profits of the mine, showing as
It does that the values of the ore affi
more than maintained at this the great-
eat depth exploited.
VTue liquid assets as given by Mr,
"SVecheville amount to 235,590 pounds
In addition to this there is about 20,000
pounds owing to the company by other
companies which will shortly be paid.
These assets exceed the total liabilities
oi the company by approximately 50,-
000 pouods.

Victoria, B. C, Dec. 6.—A case in--
volvlng every cent that the British Yukon company, otherwise tbe White Pass
& Yukon route, has taken in freight and
passenger fates since the company commenced business in 1898, will shortly be
brought before the supreme Court of British Columbia and will ia turn go
through different courts to tha highest
court in the land, the imperial piivy
In a few daya a writ will issued against the British Yukon company, under
which name the While Pass & Yukon
purpose of testing tilt legal position of
the shippers of goods ind the passengers who have paid fares on thai road
since it commenced business. The stand
taken bv_ tbe claimants, who include
some of tbe largest shippers to the Yukon, is tbat the company Under its charter from the dominion government was
compelled to have its rates approved by
tbe governor general in council. Tbis
approval, according to dispatches received from Ottawa published in (tie
press, and subsequently verified, was not
obtained by tbe company, and in fact it
did not forward schedules of freight and
passenger fetes to tbe department of
railways until (bis year. When it did
do so the schedules were returned by
tbe minister of railways, according to
press dispatches, aud officials of the
company are now in Ottawa trying to
adjust the matter. Under these circumstances, the claimants bold that they
are entitled to tbe return of tbeir farm
and freight money and damages.
The publishers of this paper, wish the
readers of Toe Tribune a very Merry
Christmas Oa Wednesday next Marys-
villa-'will Celebrate her first Curistmas
as a town, and it Is good to thlnS of the
wondarful stride! she has made during
the atoaih of her existence. It Is good
to look up and down the main street
aad sej the many signs of activity
and progreaa; It la good to gaze across
that stretch of country known as the
smelter site, whica bat yesterday was
a forest, and see the marreious pro
great made to wards the building up of
what will be one of tha greatest Industries in E 1st Kaoieaay. Iu fact it
is good to be here. At the same time,
as this season of the year comes around
again, oar thoughts are instinctively
carried back to the old hone. Man is
the only aninil created by tbe A'mighty
that has a hose and the word home Is
perhaps the sweetest word lu the Eig-
lish language. Mtrysrllle is a cosmopolitan town; our citizens are from
all over the world bat as Carlstraa.
comet they are one and all thinking of
the old home, that for one neatels
among New England Hills; for another
on the shore of one of Ontario's beautiful lakes ;for a third beside an old E ig.lsh
lane; for a fourth in a German village;
but no matter where it la, home is home
and the man who does not at times and
especially at this tlm: think of home
of hla ohlldhool is hardened indeed.
It la miay years, perhapi, since some
Of Us have '-been home for Christmas."
With some of us may be the old home is
no more, or perchance ihose whose dear
presence made ll home are gone, but
still we cau, In spirit, see tlie old homestead atindiag out clear la tae Christ-
ma. moonlight with; its time worn
timbers and masi grown roof. W: can
see the lights that come from its
windows, we cm hear ths voices, per
baps uo* silent for ever, aldging those
old time k'briswiias carola. We can aee
the blue smoke curling skyward from
the chimney, We go in, there beside
the old hearth stone are gathered those
who were perhaps more to u. than life
itself, there i. this nsnher, the father,
tbeslster and the brother just as tbey
were long year, ago we caa ae£ them
but we cannot be seen. Anou the rev
erie is over and we are back In Marvelous Maryaville, but the Utile Bight
af fancy, the visit to the old home has
done us good, hat made us better and
atronger and we feel that we can face
life with all its up. an 1 dowu. its c ires
and its depression, its hard knocks and
its unpleasantness again. So mush for
the old bone, thia being Mirysvllle's
first Christmas one ia apt to think of
what ahe will be this time next year,
and la future years. By looking forward we can see, lu years to come, a
thriving city wnoae mioy smoke stacks
will rear their heads -hove the tallest
trees announcing to tbe world that we
afe a city of lndnatry. A manufacturing city; a dinner pailclty; a pay roll
city. Along tha banks of the St.
Marys river will be minnfaclurles of
various kinds. Smelters, refioerles,
lead pipe wotka, white lead mills and
■any other Induatnrlal Institutions.
The magnificent water power ef the
■l, Marya river, Mark Creek and Perry
Creek will be harneated so aa to aupply
all the power needed. The wonderful
wealth now lying hidden in the district
will be drawn to our city for treatment
by many line, of railway. Tbe city
will be filled with an industrious and
intelligent population j In fact no town
In British Colombia, nay in the entire
west ever spent Its first Christmas with
so much to look forward to.
Hill Resigns.
It Waa announced that Jamea J. Hill
has resigned from the board of directors
of the Northern Pacific. It waa reported in financial circles that Mr. Hill's
resignation bad been contemplated for
tome time, and that It probably would
be formally presented about January
It was denied that the resignation
had been caused by the attacks made
on tbe Northern Securities erompany,
which la to operate both tbe Oreat
Northern, of which James J. Hill Is
president, and the Northern Pacific.
John Bremner of Cranbrook had a
very narrow escape It* the yard here
Wednesday. He was toning a switch
and attempted to step on the footboard
of the engine. He ml.->sed connection
and fn falling grabbed the brake-beam
aad Waa dragged under. While under
the engine he let go of the brake-beam
and did a stunt, tbat mil stop his
growth! for some tlnve. ftearly tbe
whole length of the big- engine paased
over him when he was "bunched" np
between the rails. Hs was taken ont
between the drivers without a sctatch.

Many yeara ago In Washington whed

Mr. Karl Decker made a speech trf
"Mr. Sj and-so," said Mr. Decker;
"you bave spent some time with ns, and
hare made many irienda. Yon are going away to morrow aud we ma/ never

And then he struck the oalt belt ori

bit then he reached out his band,'
thanked the club and pocketed the belt.
And— aless his simple English heart
—next morning he told another newspaper man how kind the Press Olub had
been to him and what a lovely presentation apeech Mr. Decker bad made".
Mr, Decker must bars been awfully1

I had boon nt n certain hotel In Lou-
Sou for three months while making
researches lu tlie Interests of n client
in Canada and had come to it point In
my Investigations where 1 wns required to go down to Canterbury to consult
church records, and lute one evening I
began packing my bag for the trip. I
wns llius engaged when the door opened and a stranger entered my room.
lie w:is a man of about CO, well dressed and having the look of n gentleman, nnd there was n bland smile on
Lis face as be quietly observed:
"I thought I heard you Invito me to
come in In answer to my knock. Pray
excuse me if I intrude."
IIo handed me a card on which was
engraved the name of Theodore B.
llliss, New Orleans, but bis looks and
accent did not go to show tbat be wns
a southerner. On tlie contrary, 1 know
be was a northern man. lie was fairly nested about my own town of Toronto, and, according to bis statement,
be bad been offered a large plat of vacant property at a bargain.    I knew
ly surprised and put out, but be did
not argue the mailer. Just before we
readied Guilford .luuetlou he said lie
must get on* there to see lo a little
business, but we did uot part lu bad
feeling. It was not until I arrived at
Canterbury iliai I discovered there bad
been a change of bags. Mr. llllss bail
lakeu mine and left bis.
Perhaps it was not exactly tbe right
thing to do. but lu my room ut the ho-
lel I tried my keys on the lock of tbe
strange bag and opened It. It was
stuffed full of whnl 1 at lirst supposed
to be clothing, but alter a little-investigation 1 gnw white in the face and
weak in the knees. Down below the
clothing were I'ugllsh consols and railway bonds lo the amount of half a
million dollars. 1 dlU'u't have to figure
much lo come to tin- conclusion that a
big robbery Inn! been pulled oft and
that Mr. Bliss was lu it. It was my
duty lo inform the police nt once, but
I dure I coul I leave lhe hotel two olb-
eors called and arrested me. Tbey bail
me red handed, as Ii were, and even
at lhe police slntlou they would pay
no attention lo my assertions or protestations. In KiiKinml a person tin-
d 'r arrest is deemed guilty, nt least
lij tin. p .bee. I was taken back to
London, where the robbery bad occurred, nnd. though I bad money and
credentials null was all innocent man.

the beautiful Miss Sargeant. She had

The voices trailed nway**"nt0 silence.
"Vou heard that?" said Dawnay in

Mountain climbing is a craft which has
a twofold object—the attainment of the
point which it is desired to reach aud the
avoidance of accident iu so doing. The
first is gained by skill, the second by prudence and experience. Accidents are
caused either by tilings falling upon the
climber or by tlie climber himself falling.
When I sprak of accidents, I menu
practically unavoidable misfortunes. More
than half the deaths t'.iat annually.occur
on. the Alps nre caused by neglect of the
most rudimentary precautious and nre not
properly accidents, True Alpine neci-
dciits nre those which occur in spile of
foresight and precaution. They have always kern few, and when the continually
Increasing number of climbers is reckoned
they may be said to decrease rather'than
Increase lu frequency.
The things that by falling upon a climbing party may produce fatal results nre
rocks, lee and snow. All rock mountains
are falling to pieces—some faster than
others—under the alternate frost and
thaw. Water trickles into cracks on a
warm day. At night it freezes and iu
freezing expands. It thus nels like it
edge to widen the cracks aad tear rocks
asunder. 'Thus the whole face of most
rock mountains is cumbered With loose
stones balanced on ledges to fall when the
least impulse is applied. One stone in
motion starts others and they in turn many
more. In tills manner a whole rock face
may be swept by myriads of falling rocks
of all shapes and sizes. Such falls nre
fairly common on the east faee of the
Matterhotn. That is why (he route followed up it keeps as close as possible to
the edge of the face.
Hook faces are usually furrowed with
tracks called gullies and couloirs, worn by
the stones falling down them. If a gully
is straight, stones generally fall down the
middle of it, and tlie sides may he climbed
in comparative safety. Some faces of
rock nre less liable to he stone swept than
others. An experienced climber knows
the signs of danger. When there la much
recently fallen snow on a rock face, stones
tlo not fall so often as when the snow is
nil melted away. A good climber bears
ull these facts in mind and knows what
to look out for.
As with stones, so with ice. It does
not fail anywhere nud anyhow. It has
its habits, which may be learned by observation. Except in the lower part of a
glacier ice seldom appears on the surface.
People talk vaguely of Ice when they
mean hard frozen snow. Where a glacier
descends a very steep and uneven slope
It breaks tip into great lumps of ice.
which are called seracs, Soraos often
tumble, but seldom in the early part of
the dny. It is generally easy to perceive
whether a given serac is ready to fall or
whether it is linn. A well chosen route
avoids the track where the serac may be
expected lo fall. The crests of some narrow snow ridges are fringed with nn
overhanging wave of ice, called a cornice.
Cornices grow slowly by accretion of
snowlhikes. When they become too big,
they fall, and woe to the man on whom
they fall! The wise man does not pass
under a grenl cornice.
Falling snow is called a snow avalanche. Snow avalanches only fall in
easily recognizable tracks. Most ef them
fall in springtime", before climbing begins. The summer avalanches fall after
fresh snow lias accumulated daring bad
weather. Avalanches, however, seldom
fall on climbers. Usually nn accident is
caused by the climbing party starling an
avalanche. Professor Tyndnll nearly lost
bis life in this way. lie was crossing a
steep slope of snow in tlie afternoon, after it had been softened by let sunshine.
It cracked across, and tlie whole surface
—a foot deep or so—slid down, carrying
his party with it. .By good luck they cs-
eoped from the rear of the avalanche before reaching tlie edge of a cliff, over
which it fell.' A prudent climber avoids
pressing rotten snow slopes that are steep.
Most accidents, however, nre caused by
falls from rocks, ice or snow, Careful
climbers seldom fall from rocks. They
Jo not undertake ascents that are beyond
the skill of their party. If the guides nre
good enough for the particular climb, two
of them will render any tolerable climber
safe by proper use of the rope. While
they arc moving he keeps still. When
he moves, they remain firmly planted and
draw iu the rope as he advances. If he
slips, they easily hold him.
A fall from ice is less easy to check.
The dangerous plnces arc sleep slopes of
real ice—hard line ice like the surface of
a frozen pond set up at nn angle. Steps
cut in such material are themselves quite
slippery. If a slope of this kind la very
long and takes perhaps hours to ascend,
(he lime conies when carelessness in footing or balance may lead to a slip. If the
man ahead Is immediately above the otic
who slips, ho can hold him ensiiy, hut if
the ascent, as is probable, is being made
diagonally, a slip is more tlillicull to arrest, and (he whole party will be ia great
From slopes or ridges of snow turn are
not likely to fall unless tbey nre overthrown by a sudden blast of storm, as
has happened once or twice. Even then
n fall may he arrested by using the nx
as n brake if the surface of the snow be
not too hard frozen. The chief danger on
snow is that you may fall through it into
l hidden crevasse. It sometimes happens after a fresh fall of snow that n
crevasse is completely covered up so that
not a sign of It can be perceived even by
the most experienced eye. Against (his
peril, however, there is one certain protection. It is lhe rope, rightly used. If
the members of a party are joined, as
above the snow line they always should
be, by a good rope firmly knotted round
the waist of each, with tt distance of r m
tin to fifteen terl between n man and his
neighbor, and if tlie i • '•• not allowed
lo Uniitdc on lhe ground, :, ..!!! be a matter of Indifference whether one falls into
s crevasse or not. Before he is more
than waist deep the rope will hold him,
and he will be nble to scramble out wiih
out difficulty or damage.— Sir Maitia

What remarkable speed dogs are capa- '
toe. Some rennirkable stntlstics In regard lo tills hnve been gathered by M.
DusoIIer. a French Scientist
After pointing out tbe marvelous endurance shown by little fox terriers 'f
wdio follow their masters patiently for
hours wjiile the latter are riding on bicycles or In carriages, lie says that even
greater endurance is shown by certain
wild animals that are nkln to dogs.
Thus lhe wolf can run between [10
ami (10 miles in one night, and an aretlo
fox can do quite as well, if not better.
N'nnsen met one of these foxes on tbe
lee al a point more than 70 miles northwest of the Sannikow territory, which,]
is -ISO miles from the Asiatic coast. Eskimo nud Siberian dogs cau travel 43
miles on the Ice lu five hours, and thero
Is one case ou record In which a learn
of Eskimo dogs traveled O'vi miles In
28 m I utiles.
According to M. DusoIIer. the speed
of lhe shepherd dogs and those used In
Imi.'.'.'.'.g ranges from lu to 15 yards »
second. English" setters and pointers
hunt nt the rale of IS to 1'J miles an
hour, and they can maintain this speed
for al least two hours.
Foxhounds arc extraordinarily swift,
is Is proved by Mie fact that a dog of
Ibis breed once beat a thoroughbred
horse, covering four miles In tl'.-j minutes, which was at the rate of nearly
IS yards a second.
t.'reybounds nre (he swiftest of all
I'our fooled creatures, nud tbelr speed
limy be regarded as equal to tbat of
enrrlcr pigeons. English greyhounds,
which are carefully selected nnd which
are used for coursing, tire able to cover al full gallop a space between 18
aud 'J?, yards every second.
How great nn achievement tbis Is
may lie Judged from the fact that a
horouglibred horse rarely If ever ex-
•eeds 11) yards. Moreover. It Is said
l::u n hare at Its greatest speed never
toes faster than at the rate of IS yards.
These Interesting statistics nre exciting much comment among sportsmen and other lovers of dogs, and the
opinion Is unanimous that M. DusoIIer
lias fully proved lhe right of the greyhound lo rank as the swiftest of the
quadrupeds. Express engines only surpass them.—London Mail.

The Rich, Red Blood Made by Dr.
Mill lams' Pink Pills Gives New
Strength to Every Nerve, Fibre
and Organ of the Body.
From The Budget, Shelburne, N.S.
Among the young ladies of Shelburne, there is none today who more
fully bears tlie impress of perfect
health than Miss Lilian Durfee. Unfortunately this was not always the
case, as a few years ago Miss Durfee became ill, and her friends feared
that she was going into decline. A
doctor wus called in und prescribed
but his medicines did not havo the
desired effect. Her strength gradually loft her, her appetite failed, she
had frequent headaches, was very
pale, and finally grew so weak that
a walk of a few rods would completely fatigue her. The young
lady's family sorrowfully observed
that the was steadily failing, and
feared that consumption would claim
her as a victim. One day a friend
urged that she should give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial, but the
idea at first was not favorably entertained ; it seemed hopeless to expect that any medicine would help
her after the doctor's treatment had
failed. However, this good friend
titill urged, and finally prevailed.
By the time the third box was used,
there was an unmistakable improve-
ifient in Miss Durfee's condition.
Cheered by this, the pills were continued, anh in the course of a few
weeks tiie former invalid, whose
strength wns taxed by the slightest
exertion, was almost restored to
health. The use of the pills was
still continued and a few weeks more
found Miss Durfee again enjoying
perlect health.
To a reporter who interviewed her,
she said :—"I believe Lhat Dr. Williams' Pink Pills saved iny life, and
I earnestly recommend thitjrs to all
who fear that consumption has laid
its grasp upon them."
That the facts related above are
not in any way exaggerated, is
borne out by the following statement,
from Robt. G. Irwin, Esq., the well
kaown stipendiary magistrate* for the
municipality, who says:-"! distinctly remember tho pale face of Miss
Lillian Durfee and the regrets of
friends as thoy expressed their conviction that she would soon bo compelled to sny farewell to earth. Miss
Durfee, however, carries the unmistakable credentials of good health,
and frequently expresses her indebtedness to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

A Jo km #n m, Professor.
Among some intensely amusljg college scrapes told by "A Graduate" In

of a certain professor not much Itfced
by his pupils who was to be married.
Tlie lady lived in Cleveland. And the
students thnt loved (?) htm wore not
of course Invited. But thoy determined that in some way ho should hoar
from them. And he did. On the day
appointed the professor took the train
at 10 u. m,, due to arrive nt Cleveland
fit 12:30 p. m. About 11 o'clock Jim
Townsend rushed to tho telegraph office and sent oil this dispatch:
"Chief of Police, Cleveland: Man
coming on train No. 0, tall, well dressed, frock coat. Bilk hat, side whiskers.
Escaped lunatic. Hold. Shrewd, therefore beware. Strange ease. Will say

This message reached Its destination
Ic/ng before train No. 0 reached Cleveland, eo that when Professor l'iinilll
alighted it was to walk straight Into
the custody of three detectives. Thoy
would listen lo no words of reason, but
escorted him out to the house on Euclid
avenue, the homo of his intended bride.

What to Do and Wbat Not to Do to
These Little Men and Women.
I hare seen a good deal in the papers
recently about the training of children.
The fads In that line seem to be increasing, but no two of these fads radge.
There la business common sense, and
there is professional common sense and
there Is social common sense, and I find
no reason why there should not be pa-
rental common sense. You cannot bnng
up children with the strap or tbe slap.
I don't forget what Solomon says about
the rod. He is no authority, however,
except on the subject of vanities. There,
no doubt, he was at home; or, let us say,
had them nt home, in the shape of 000
wives, straight and morganatic. Probably
there were a few offspring and more than
likely the "Original Mormon" maintained
a police force, with staves to keep the
family in order. "SfSare the rod and
spoil the child" is in keeping with "Hew
Agag in pieces before the Lord." A
licking to alioy Is akin to capital punish-
ment—it pfetty nearly knocks all the
manhood life out of him. You must
treat children as human beings, and not
as pet animals, which often get kicks
and cuffs, as well as dainty food.
The first thing to bs considered Is the
physical health of tho child. Don't swaddle it needlessly. Kicking the ball for
the growing youth Is good, and kicking
the bedclothes is good for the infant.
Even U thero are no bedclothes to kick
tl e air will do. Don't bo In a hurry to
Bootho it If It cries. Crying Is excrcist
and won't hurt It a bit. When It gets
older and can talk, help It with the names
of things. Don't carry it with one arm
hanging over your shoulder. That arm
may he prevented from growing into
proper shape and bo bo shorter than the
other or one shoulder may be higher than
the other. Let it He nnd sprawl and
crawl. By and hy when it is big enough
to understand things don't talk nonsense
to It, but sense. Tell it things, and then
make It tell you back. Put something
Into the mind and then draw it out again
with questions.
My advice is never to use threats to a
boy. It Is mean, nnd it makes tho child
feel mean and hy and by become mean.
Never say, "If you do so and so, I'll whip
you." If the boy does what you havo
forbidden him to do and he expects a
whipping, when you ask him, "Did you
do so and so?" fearing punishment, be
will more than likely lie. Lying is the
only defense a helpless child 1ms in such a
case. He can't square off and prepare to
make a fight of it, and so he lies. You
can't blame him. Use reason and affectionate counsel aud not threats, nnd if
he disobeys you love him nnd tell him
how unhappy lie has made you by his
disobedience. Don't let him he burdened
with hooks or he'll break down. See that
he is taught and not crammed. From
"the infant mewling and puking in the
■urse's arms" to tb* "lean nnd slippered
pantaloons, sans eyes, sans teeth, snns
taste, sans everything," it is knowledge
which one can use that is helpful.—

"It purzles me," said n hairdresser at
one of the popular resorts, "why women
are so careless about their hair. I am
kept busy all winter trying to get hair in
good condition that was spoiled In tbe
summer. There is nothing that hurts the
roots of the hair as sea bathing does, yet
many women bathe nearly every day for
a month of two, and seldom have (he
hair properly washed aftorward, and
then they wonder why it falls out in
winter, nnd have massage nnd tonics for
eix months to make It healthy again.
"They often think, because only a part
of the hair gels wet, just under the edge
of the cap, that there is no harm done,
but that is just where the harm comes.
It is at the roots thut tha water does
most damage."

Interviewed by the Representative of
the Echo—Story of Her Trouble
as Related by. Herself—Her Opinion of Dotkl's Kidney Pills.
Plattsville, Out., Oct. 21.—tSpec-
ial)—The case of Mrs. .1. Darnett of
this town was found of sufficient importance to bu published at length ie
the Plattsville Echo. To the representative of that live local paper she
made the following statement concerning her Experience With Hoild's
Kidney Pills.
"I have bejDQ ailing for years, but
in tho spring o{ last year I grew
very much worse. The symptoms of
my disease were nervousness, rheum-
tisin in the left arm, pains in the
small of the hack, up the spinal column and back of tlie head, through
the eyes, left side of the bocty and
occasionally the right side.
"1 grow weak, for I had no appetite and night after night I could
not sleep. I was a physical wreck.
I was treated by doctors, but their
medicines afforded mo no relief. I
chanced to read in Dodd's Almanac
of the virtue in Dodd's Kidney Pills
and the wonderful cures effected by
"Tlie symptoms as therein explained corresponded with my own, and I
started taking Dodd's Kidney Pills
according to directions. Before I
had finished one box thero was ti decided improvement in my condition..
Jly appetite returned, the pain was
lessoned and I was able to tl?-?p. ■[
have token in all twelve boxes and
have completely recovered. No sign
of my old trouble remains, and I ascribe it only to Dodd's Kidney Dills.

Tech-Blase of iyi  Art That  Hcqnlrea
Tact nnd Skill.
Some time in his life every author, no
matter how succcsful he may be in fiction, determines to write a piny, and
this without a dear understanding of
the difference between the dramatic aud
other forms of compositoin, So few, indeed, are those who hnve mastered the
technique of both '.he novel and the play
that they can he counted upon your
thumbs, snys Mann-script,
Charles Reade, whom Swinburne calls
the greatest of English novelists nnd
whose "The Cloister and the Hearth" j;
•greed by all to be the ideal of the hlstor-
(cal novel, always plumed himself en his
ability to write a play. Certainly he had
the dramatic sense, as the stories of his
which have been dramatized prove, but
he lacked the training in dramatic technique. And, worsj 01* all, he wns totally
blind to his deficiency. He made over n
good French play into a poor Eugllsb
one and wrote to tl friend that h« had
aehlevid the dearest wish of his life.
In the composition of u play the first
essential is tl'c construction ot a "scenario," tho framework of iho fabric. With
this done, the play U fully embodied ia
the miud of the practical playwright.
The rest in but upholstering—"leather
and prtinolla." The younger Dumas was
once asked how he was getting on with a
piny that he had on the stocks and au-
Bwercih "Nearly through. All done but
tho dialogue."
The fault of the "closet dramatist,"
whose plays read better than they act. 13
nearly always too much attention to literary style and too little to stage effect.
I!e thinks too mueh of word painting, a
necessity iu the daya of the bare Eliza*
hotium stage, but now rendered obsoh-te
by the calcium pud other modern effects.
The frame of the dramatic edifice n.nva-
days Is everything. The paint can be
squirted on with u hose.
Tho novelist who will write n play
should therefore engage the services of
n professional playwright eitUr as n cub
hvborator or critic nnd reviser. Even
then, if he docs not produce a popular
playj he will have received hints concerning tlie attainment of dramatic effects
which will be of invaluable service to him
in subsequent work In Ids uv.!i field of
fiction. Indeed, one of the best practices
an embryo novelist could engage In would
be the nuvoliidng of a successful drama
—if he can find one on the boards tbat
wasn't a novel Itself originally.

There has been very much discussion
as to the the erecting of a skating rink,
and at iaat it has been arranged so aa
to have meeting, and of course Marysville does not want to be behind the
other towns of Sou-h E ist Kootenay tn
the line of sports. A meeting was held
on Wednesday evening and there was
a large attendance en-circled tbe L?ask
ball. The first business was to elect
officers. The following officers were
elected :
E. H. Small, President.
Fred E. Haines, Secetary-Treasurer,
Management committee, Messrs.
Llddlcotte, Wolf and Mitchell.
After a little discussion on tbe
location It was decided by the management committee to locate tbe rink on
tha flat below the falls. Well this
means tbat tbe town will have a hockey
team. There Is no doubt that we can
get a team, and all we want Is practice
for we have got lota of good material
to chouse from, and there is no doubt
that the clt!z:ns of thia town will give
good support towards a team.
