From Cranbrook Herald.
The inevitable bee been announced.
Prom authentic source, the new. cornea
to Tbe Herald that a commlailon has
been appointed to investigate the count-
leu rumor, tbat bave cast the reputation
of several official, in this district under
a shadow, and placed a blot on the fair
name of South East Kootenay. In ever;
otber district in the province Ibe commissioners and license inspectors bave
been appointed; but this district still re-
mains without an) one appointed to these
positions. Tbis is not due to neglect on
the part of tbe officials at tbe coast, but
with a desire to have the rumors sifted
down and the truth secured.
This is what The Herald has maintained from the start. If one or more
of tbe members of the license board
bave been guilty of taklog money from
applicants, let this fact be blazoned
forth. If only two have been guilty and
one innocent, let the innocent one be
freed from tbe burden of suspicion. And
if none are guilty, if none have been in
fluenced by money or other considerations in tbeir decisions, Ibis fact should
be proven beyond all question of a
doubt, and tbese men placed in a position in this district where no discreditable rumors cau reach tbem.
It is not pleesant for any man holding
a public. position to know tbat be is
viewed with suspicion and that his
official honor has been attacked. No
innocent man need fear an investigation
and a free and open inquiry should be
hailed witb joy and thanksgiving.
It is understood that the investigation
will be no whitewash affair, but on tbe
contrary it will be thorough aud far
teaching, including all offi rials connected with the granting of licenses. Subpoenas wiil be issued tor all whom the
'.'ouiuiissioners have reason, to think are
iu a position to know anything of any
wrong doing, directly or indirectly, and
evidence is being secured at a rapid rate.
Tbe commission Mill have In deal with
the questions of money paid other than
tbe law provides, and influences exerted.
If it 'inn he shown that such has beeu
the cas,', ihere wili be a lot of i.<-w oflje
ials iu South Bust Kootenay. It it can*
not be pruv-.ii even to a rensonable ex
tent, then Ibe men who have beeu subjected to all kinds of indlguiiies as the
victims of tbese rumors will be doner
The Herald wauts to see fair play, aud
uo blame attached to any innocent man,
It alao wants to see fair play with Ihe
people, and if tbere is a member of Ihe
board or any one connected with it, wbo
haa taken one cent directly or indirectly
from any applicant for a license, The
Herald hopes that his name uuy be held
up to the scorn of the people of Ihe entire district and tbe produce. There
are honest men in South Bast Kootenay
and if there is a dishonest man holding
office, if there is one who holds an official club over the beads of tbe people for
tbe purpose of compelling mem to disgorge, tben let him be scourged ficm
utbee, and an honest man put in bis
That ia wbat Tbe Herald wants, and
tbat is wbat tbe people want.

He got Into a pretty rough mix up and

Thare la no donbt In tha world that
British Columbia, aa a province, has
been handicapped so far as growth and
development ara concerned. There
are many reaaona for this. Situated,
aa our Province ia, on the very western
fringe of tbe Dominion, aeparated from
the more populous parts of tha country
by great atretchee of r*lalne and seas of
mountains It baa been left out in the
cold, lo to speak, and Ita wonderful
resources have been as an nncnt book to
tha people In tbe east. To tha people
of Europe, except ln a very exclusive
mining circle ln London, It has been a
.veritable "terra incognita," Time and
time again the British Colombian meeting a friend ia England, wben on a
visit there, has been addressed thus:
"Oh yes British Colombia, South
America somewhere." People don't
know and don't care where British
Columbia Is and get it mixed ln their
minda with British Honduras, British
Becknanaland and the hundred
and cae British eomethlnge tbat are
scattered all over the world.
As we have mentioned ever since the
Marysville Tribune haa been published,
which by the way Is alx months count-
log this Issue, the people of British Columbia should do all tbey can to let the
outside world know what we have In
our country. The government do, It Is
true, get out some pamphlets and so do
the railway companlea which are more
or less distributed throughout the east
and Europe; but more than this is wanted. There are vary few persons residing ln the province who have not at
least one friend or acquaintance In tba
east or lu the old country who would
be interested in knowing something
about British Columbia and even If they
are not materially Interested themselves they in tarn will know some one
that Is, and will tell them what they
have heard and by thia means the story
of tbe resources of this great western
province will be scattered abroad very
much ou the endless chain principal.
A word from one satisfied settler ln
the province Is worth more than a
hundred government pamphlets. We will
know thlt; wc, everyone of us take the
word of a friend and value It much
in .re than anything we see In print.
We say, therefore, keep telling tho
outside world that which you know to
be true aboat British Columola.

leases, $110,000, and from tbe fisheries,
A summary will abow how largely the
province is dependent upon the mlniug
industry for ita revenue. Some of tbe
details are: Free miners' certificates,
$175,000; mining receipts general, $80,-
000; mineral tax, $130,000; royalty
on * coal, $130,000; making a
total of $515 000, whereas tbe mining
districts bear their ahare of all the other
sources of revenue including the $150,000
that ia expected from tbe poll tax.
Tbe expenditures are expected lo total
$1486,11731, distributed as follows:
Public debt, $493,140; civil government,
$263 ado; administration of justice, $111,-
112; legislation, $44,195; public irstitu-
lions (msintenance), $198,390; cbaritiea
and bospitals, $74,800; administration of
justice (otber thau salaries), $110,900;
education, $411,140; transport, $21,200;
revenue service, $17,000; miscellaneous,

$4,700; roads, streets, bridges and
wharves, $395,350; surveys, $12,000; and
contingencies, $50,000.
Cranbrook gets another teacher, making four in all. Tbe district of South
East Kootenay gets $14,500 for this year,
tbe same aa North East Kootenay, which
will not permit of of much in the way ol
roads, trails and bridges.
Interesting   Facts   oa
East  Kootenay.
R. L. T. Galbraith of Port Steele, recently made hia annual trip to the ln.
diam of West Kootenay. While in Nelson be waa interviewed by the Miner on
the conditions in South East Kootenay,
and gave the following businesslike account of the situation:
"In Hast Koolenay at present business
is dull except nesr tbe coal mining centers and along tbe line of the Crows
Nest Southern.    Portal la one of tbe
latest towns to come Into existence in
Bast Kootenay.   It is situated close to
the 'international boundary, where the
Kootenay river flows into the state of
Montana.   It was formerly  known   as
Linklighter's Hudson's Bay post, and is
in tbe midst of a rich farming and stock
raising country.   A considerable number
of settlers have come Into the country
there during tbe last year, and tbe prospects ft r tbe ensuing year are good.    A
customs house ia stationed there.   Nortb
of Portal, the next town on the new railroad   ia Elk  Mouth,  where  the  line
crosses the Elk river.   The track ia now
laid to that point and aa soon as the
bridge is finished, which is expected to
be about May 1, tracklaying on the other
side of the river will be proceeded witb.
The next station is at Crows Nest landing, on the Kootenay river, a few miles
from Blko, which is ■ point of call for
for the ateamer.   The grading on the
road from Elk Mouth to Elko is nearly
completed  and  work is being pushed
vigorously, operations being carried on
both day and night by tbe army of men
employed by tbe contractors.   At Elko
times are very good at present, the business men doing a good trade.     At Morrissey considerable building ia in progress, but tbe townsite is not yet on Ibe
market.   Fernie ia alao busy, and Michel
is a lively town, a large amount of coal
being taken out.
"At Maryaville work is progressing
steadily on tbe smelter, and the prospects
of both Kimberley and tbe first mentioned (own are bright. At tbe latter about
50 men are employed on development
work at the Nortb Star mine, and the
reports are most encouraging. On the
Sullivan, it ia tbe intention of tbe management to put a large force to work aa
soon as the smelter is completed to
supply it witb ore. Port Steele is quiet,
but the mines, especially on Tracy
creek, are showing up well. On Wild
Horse creek there will be considerable
placer mining done tbis summer, tbe results of the last aeason's operations having beeu tbe best obtained for some
yeara in that district. Ou Perry cteek a
great deal of work haa been done during tbe winter, particularly on the deeper propertiea. A party of Wisconsin
capitalists have purchased a number of
placer leases and nre putting in a hydraulic plant ou thia creek to work not
only the bed of the creek but also Ibe
bench plncer lands. Craubrnik is progressing fiivor bly, and at Worthier a
sawmill is to be put in which will probably help the town considerably." Cap-
tain Armstrong, of the steamer Nortb
Star, bad just passed through before Mr.
Galbraith had left Port Steele, on his
way to Tobacco Plains, and it ia his intention to run the North Star between
tbe boundary and Port Steele during
high water. A good deal of prospecting
will be done through the entire section
this season, and altogether. Mr. Gal-
braith thought that aa soon as the silver-
lead question was settled Soutb Hast
Kootenay would be tbe best section of
British Columbia. He was one of the
first to reach Eaat Kootenay, and is as
enthuslaatic as ever as to its wonderful
resources, and knowing it tborougbly
has good reason to speak aa he does.

Advice Abont Fire Insurance.
A very proper and Indeed neceaaary
step has been taken by the Dry Goods
section of the Toronto board of trade
ln Issuing to retail dry goods merchants
in city and country a circular which
contains worda of warning with reaped
to fire Inaurance. One aentence In this
circular urges merchants to seek tbe
best and most reliable companies In
which to place Insurance, and adds
wbat Is quite true, namely, that mer
chants buy Insurance as they buy nothing else, frequently giving a line to an
agent with whom It Is well to be on
good terms or whom they wish to favor.
It Is poor compensation for the "favor"
an Insurance has dona bis friend tbe
agent, to find after he has been burned
out, that the company is onable to pay
the loss or perhaps contests the claim
on Insufficient grounds.—Monetary
II Will Make Thia  Tows  th«  Busies!
in  III  of  Soulh   East
It begins to look aa If tbe Great Nor*
thern wonld take the Initiative In getting a road up the St. Marys valley.
As soon as the road between the
Great Northern and Fernie ie completed, it Is pretty generally understood
that that company win proceed to build
from E ko north to the St. Marys rlvar,
and up tbat valley to the Purcell range
also securing lake terminals, and connection with Hill's road In Weat Kootenay. Thia would give tbe Great Northern a complete circuit through tha
rlebeat mining diatrict of Brltlah Columbia, and a atrong pull for future business.
It Is a question, of course, aa to
whether tbe C. P. B. will sit down and
tamely submit to this invasion. In all
probability, there will be a pretty fight,
and Marysville will be the center of the
contest. The building of a railway is
going to make lively times hero this
summer, and Marysville promises to be
one of the best towns in Eastern British Columbia.
There are the very beat of reasons to
believe that one of the roads will build
tbis summer and possibly both. The St
Marys valley Is an Important link to
tbe Jim Hill system In British Columbia
and It Is fully as Important, If not more
so to the C. P R. Of course the latter
road has already a survey made up the
valley several miles. Tbe Great Nor.
thern baa a charter In tbelr handa and
can build wben they aee fit.
Which ever way it goea, Maryaville
Is bound to profit, as It will be headquarters of all opentlons. Elko Is
pretty lively during the construction of
the Biltlsh Columbia Southern, but Elko
la not in it to any extent to what
Maryaville will be as soon as this road
starts up the valley. There will be not
only the railway, bnt the smeller, tha
two saw mills, and the large mining
interests that will contribute so largely
to the business prosperity of Marysville.

All hands gut down ns smartly as they

Presently we gut the order to lower

Inln ihe water, und she was duly iiiiinnul
by her regular crow of four. I. wliu um
now spinning this yarn, pulled bow.
We rowed right around her, looking for
a convenient place to climb on Iter deck,
hut llndlng none we just made fust io the

jumped over her mil m ber deck, Jum
abaft the main rigging. Everything wns
as nent as iiitiepeuee. Tlte ropes were all
coiled snugly mound the belaying pins,
nml there was uo sign of disorder nbuut
the decks. I throw over tho end of cue

the skipper might hang on to it and
clamber up. The old man caught hold of
it nud. having u lot nf low cunning, Just
tried Its strength. It wns su rotten that
It ported at once. The skipper muttered
an oath and looked daggers at inc. Finally he climbed up with the help nf the
painter, and after passing the hunt astern,
with oue hand In Hike care uf her, we pro.
ceedod tn investigate.
The vessel hud evidently been a clipper.
Her skylights wore beautifully carved,
and Ihe cuiupaiijuiiwiiy lending to her cub
iu was as elegant as thnt of u yacht. The
door, however, wus lucked. A thick blue
mold iiieriisted the glass uf lhe skylight
nn the inside, and the frames would uu!
lift up. The hatchway leading to the
fuioeasllc was olnsely burred and hulled,
while the fure nud main hatches were
tightly buttoned down.
rnpiuin flu,liver, while cruising nruunil
the decks, stumbled across an old rusty
noli crowbar, and with I lit.** he pried open
he doors uf l-bo nfler cniiipaiiiunwuy. He
peered down heluw. and it was dusky and
murky us u liiiuu.
He sung nut: "Below there! Is there
unyhnily below?" And then he hesitated
ns if in a quandary.
This wns she first time I ever'saw Ihe
old fellow show the white feather.
After a lillle while he braced up anil,
seizing the cruwbur. broke open the cabin
skylights, using, as il seemed to me. uu
necessary force in su doing. A mysteri

"Ou down below. Hill," said the skipper
to une uf liis bunt's crew, "and see whnl
there is."
"Captain, I'd rather jump overboard
and never come up again than go down
lhat there cunipniiiniiway atone," was the
reply nf tho Beared sailor, whose timber*,
actually shivered wiih fear.
"Vou wretched coward, you've drunk
your last mt uf grog aboard my ship!"
roared lhe skipper ns lo plunged down
the cabin steps.
I followed him ut a cautious distance,
being far more frightened thnn be was.
The stairs led down into a handsome and
lofty saloon, beautifully hung witli oriental K.'ipostry. In a mn hog ny swinging
tray abnve lhe cabin table were decaliters
ntu! tumblers of cm glass. Although everything was covered wiih b'ue mold un
inch thick, ii was evident thut a careful
steward hud been acellsl-UUied tn rule over
the destinies uf tbe snlunn.
On either side uf tho iiiuin cabin wore n
number nf doors leading Into staterooms.
The skipper tried ihe one nearest the
stern un the starboard side.   It was luck
"Pass down ihat crowbar, Hill," said
the enptnin iu quiet tones. He no longer
put on the air of a swaggering blusterer,
hut acted as though be was iu church listening to a sky pilot.
The crowbar wns handed him, and witli
it he pried upon lhe stateroom dour. ' A
strange and startling spectacle was revealed, Willi her head buried in the cusli-
inns of n low couch, on ber kuees before
the image of the Blessed Virgin and with
her jet black linir' hiding her chocks nnd
descending in raven torrents down her
back was a beautifully dressed woman,
Beside her wore u hrcvinry and a rosary.
The skipper started back ns though ho
had been shut. The woman actually
seemed to hoar the "Excuse inc. madam,
for Intruding," he began, but at thnt moment, realizing that she could not he olive,
he look hold nf her gently. Al his liisl

This accounted clearly for Iho vessel.
She hnd been n shiver and had boon abiln-

The mate wauled the captain to low

Inter, mitU I beard from him. Directly after the message came tbo line;
"Express train in sight. Something

minute; then came Dick's familiar tup
lap: "Express in being run by strange
hands. Tbey have slopped nt this Bta*
Hon.   Send relief."
There was u second's silence; then,
before I could Hash the iiliirin along
the line, the lapping began again. It
run: "Everything all right.  Uobdlvy."
1 signaled for blm to repeat the message, and again cniiio Ibe words: "Everything nil right,   tioodby."

It did uot seem lit nil like Dick's

quieted my fears while I waited for

I recalled thai Dick bad told uie over
the wire the previous evening that the
"runaway" would have s large sum of

bod seen blm laid nway In the grave-

been mine fnr so lung.
In Dick's place at the Instrument
there sat an hnllesl lillle cbap. uud assisting ti: ii i was il mil her lad. for the
siailon at l.nla'vlllu uuw boasted half
a dozen emploveoa.
High above the statiun. ou a bluff
that commanded Ibe finest view In
town, was the home of the president of
the company, a man wbo bud fought
■I-- ny up nud who now boasted his
.- .lis.
The president was a toll, dork man,
Willi Kteru features, hut a kind heart,
and uflou 1 watched blm with envy as
he alighted from bis private car and
entered the handsome Victoria which
carried blm behind bis spanking team
up lo bis home on l.nkevllle heights.
Often the president did nut go up to
the city, and on these occasions lie
wired me ou his private Hue, und I
wiled to the city for blm.
One day, chancing to alt at tba in
strument, there came n call on the
president's wire, find, responding. I received this message: "Let me know If
the rood Is clear."   - —
A minute tutor I colled up his private
wire ond tapped.' "The road Is elonr."
"All right." came bnck the answer.
It was a simple enough message, but
lt set my pulsus throbbing. Mechanically I touched the button und repeated the message, "Tbe road Is clear,"
and Immediately came back the words,
"All right."
I sat nt the Instrument like a man in
a dream, nnd my thoughts were with
Dick, who bad sat at the same spot
live years before find bad touched that
same Instrument. What was there In
that reply that so fascinated inc. or
was It the anniversary of poor Dick's
death that made me fanciful?
That afternoon tlie president come
dowu lo the station ou business, nud I
looked nt blm closely. He must have
seen me watching him, for be shifted
his position uneasily and nervously
handled the Instrument, I may say
thut be was an expert operator und
preferred telegraphing bis messages to
writing Ibem.
As I watched blm I remembered
bearing the strange story of bis rise;

the road, und how his wealth and holdings were known far and wide.
lie seemed III al ease lhat doy. and I
withdrew my eyes uud busied myself
elsewhere. But more .an once be
caught me 'noting at him.
Twice that day tho president drove
down to the station, and slowly he
drove home again, ns though be were*
disturbed about something. The third
time he enmo It was almost (lark, and I
heard him send bis coachman home,
telling him that he would follow soon
on foot.
Kor half an hour the president busied himself around the station, n most
unusual thing for him, aud when bo
finally took leave it was to walk hurriedly away iu tbe direction of tbo
churchyard, a Journey which I ofuu
took myself.
Scarcely realizing what I was doing,
I pulled my cap over my eyes and
started after blm. What excuse I
would make If be turned und saw me I
knew uot. I only understood that bohk.

But, horror of horrors, he stopped!

fiercely between bis teeth. "You dogged my steps!"
He wns u powerful man, but In the
struggle which followed I enslly mastered him and hud him pinioned, white
and panting. "Do not add another

"How tlo you know?" he whispered,
"1 recognized your hand upou the
wire. I was the agent ot the next station when you—too!; Dick's place—you

"Oh. tlod, yes!" he cried. "Shall I

been forced to stay with the main
body, which was not n very big main
body at that, at ull times. He had
been In everything in which the whole
troop was engaged, but tbe Idea of
sending Hans out on n reconuolssniice
where coolness nnd the subtlety of Ibe
devil were necessary for safety was
the last thing thnt ever entered the
head of tbe troop commander.
One dny, however, one of the coldest
duys of tbe second winter mouth, It
became necessary to send n scouting
paity to Investigate the rumor of Ibe
approach of n band of savages. Now, it
hnppened thnt the whole command
was fagged out, and this iu a nutshell
Is the reason why Hans Mueller found
himself for the first time In his life In
a position of neute responsibility. He
wns ordered by Coptnln Roberts lo
proceed with Sergeant Nelson nnd two
privates northwest until something
was "folt" or until tho sorgonut was
satisfied that a wrong report bad been
turned Into tlio camp.
When the little body set out, the fatigue of tbe Individual members of the
troop showed that It was uot, so to
speak, Rtrong enough to keep these
sumo individuals from giving Hans a
sendoff. Hans hod a carbine and n revolver. His trumpet wns hanging up
on a peg. One of the bystanders said
to the sergcantin command: "Look out
for Hans If you happen to get Into n
scrimmage. Tho first thing you know
he'll forget himself, nnd he'll try to
blow 'retreat' on bis cnrblne. You may
lose one man If Hans puts his moutb to
the wrong end of tlie borrei."
Then they said u few other things to
HniiB. He wns told to be sure not to
get bis canteen mixed up wltb his cartridge belt and to mnko sure thnt he
took note of the Inndmnrks on tho wny
out so lie could get bnck to camp In a
hurry If be happened to hear un Indian
shoot off his gun. Hans took all this
well enough, because the thought of
uctually going out on a scout wns sufficient to knock all other things out of
his head, resentment along with tbem.
They hnd left the camp fur behind
them. Sergeant Nelson, who *ivns nn
old and tried campaigner, turned to his
men and said. "We nre getting near
lhe place where we tuny expect to see
something." Then ho spoke seriously
to Hans. ".Mueller," bo said, "you're
not half ob bud perhaps as the troop
makes out, but I tell you honestly tbnt
I'm kind of afraid of you wben it
cuiiics to n pinch. Do lhe best you can
ami don't run. Ah a matter of fact, 1
think Hint .Um Crosby was pipe dreaming when bo brought the rumor of reds
lu this vicinity lulu crimp, but you may
have a chance to sec trouble and If you
do nlcase stick."
That waa a pretty tough thing to
have to aay to a aoldler wltb Uncle
Sam's uniform on his back. Stick!
Mueller's face went almost white under realization thnt the true significance of that admonition wns that tbe
sergeant had n pretty stiong fear In
tils heart tbat this trumpet tfioter was
n coward. Stick! He would show tbem
If be was only given a chance.
Sergeant Peter Nelson wns an old
-.un tried campaigner, maeed, but that
dny he made n mistake. He led his
throe men straight Into nn ambush.
There were a score of painted Nez
Forces straight across their track. The
Indians had very little cover, but tbey
used It so artfully that the old soldier
sergeant bad actually thought that the
bit of embankment and the few scattered bowlders did not offer cover
enough to conceal a Jnck rabbit.
The first Intimation of tlio Indians'
presence was a volley. Sergeant Nelson went to the ground with n wound
In Ills side. One of tho privates, shot
through tbe shoulder nnd leg, fell with
him. The two men crawled behind a
couple cf rocks and secured temporary
shelter. At the savage volley Hans
Mueller's heart went to bis throat.
With the other private, who. like
nans, was iinlilt, he fell back about
forty yards and went behind an adequate cover. There for live minutes
tbey exchanged shuts witli the reds,
who, In accordance with Indian custom, would in t charge across the open,
but depended rather upon being able to
pick off tbe Soldiers and then tu go forward without danger and take the
scalps. Hans Mueller found that he
could use his carbine. His heart went
down out of- bis throat. He locked
nruund him nnd saw Unit there was
some chance of holding the savages off
for hours. Out beyond he saw bis two
stricken comrades. They were not
dead. He knew tbat because lie saw
them move and occasionally weakly
r.-ilsi- themselves and send a shot In the
direction of the red foe.
Ho ns said to himself, "Those men
must be brought bnck here." Tben ho
handed his enrbino to his comrade nnd
with It his belt nnd nnlmunltlon. "You
mny need these," he Bald, "If those fellows hit me." Then he Jumped over
the rock In front of blm, und with his
long, shambling, nngnlnly stride he
made for the side of Sergeant Nelson.
The Indians pumped nt him. The balls
whizzed by bis head, cut his clothes In
three places nnd spat spitefully Into
the dust nt his feet. Telling Nelsou to
grab his carbine, Mueller raised the
sergeant In his nrtus and mnde bnck
fer cover, his track all the way marked
out for bim by the shots of the savages. He dropped the sergeant under
the shadow of the rock and then stood
ou bis feet.
•'Where you going, Mueller?" said
Sor/jeniit Nelson feebly.
"I'm going after Dodds," snid Mucl
Ior, and bo cleared the little rock to the
front once more.
"God bless you. Mueller." wns whnt
be beard above the cracking of the rifles to bis front. He reached the side
of ibe wounded Dodds, raised blm and
started back with blm across tbe strip
of hell. Twice he staggered ns volleys
rang out, but lie reached the side of his
comrades and placed Dodds between
Nelson and the unwounded trooper.
Then linns Mueller fell dead.
Relief came to the three surviving
cavalrymen. The two wounded lived.

Porlnaraeae Hotel Clocks.
It is the fashion for Portuguese
clocks to strike the hour twice over.
Heaven only knows why, for certnlnly
the people are not so keen about tbo
profitable uso of tbelr time thnt tbey
require to be reminded thus of Its
flight. The bnblt Is apt to be Irritating,
especially in the night, when your bed,
like enough a straw mattress and a
bran pillow, chances to bo near one of
these monsters which dings Its four
and twenty strokes at midnight, with
a pause between tbo dozens which
merely stimulates expectation. If thero
are five clocks In tbe establishment, all
witb sonorous works—and the supposition Is reasonable—tbey will, of course,
differ widely, so tbnt tweuty-four may
be striking, with intervals, during a
mnddenlng half hour.
You may happen to want to know
badly which one of tbo monsters Is tho
least mendacious, and the bells at your
bed bend communicate "with two servants, one n Gnllego and the other a
Portuguese, ln such a case ring for tin
despised stranger without hesitation
He will be with you In a minute, fresh
and smiling, though bnlf naked, anc
If he distrusts his own Judgment about
the clocks be will not mind saying so
and hasten to nwaken tbe landlord
himself rntber than tbat you should
remain In doubt.
I regret to add tbat his more conceited fellow servant will more probably
say whatever first comes to bis tongue,
moro heedful of bis own comfort than
of your desires.
Attacked by a  Heron.
"I've hunted everything from gray
squirrels to grizzlies," snid a veteran
Philadelphia sportsman, "and the nearest 1 ever cume to being seriously injured by any sort of game was one
time when n wounded bird attacked
and tried lo kill me.
"I wus a boy then nnd went down to
a creek that flowed through my father's farm to watch for a mink. It
wns early In the evening, and n blue
heron came and sat within tempting
gunshot I knew it would spoil ray
chances at mink to shoot the bird, nnd
I didn't Intend to do It; but, kidlike,
raised the gun nnd took aim just to see
how I could kill It If I would. I lowered tbo gun nnd then raised it again,
Every time I raised It I would touch'
the trigger gently. After nwhlle 1
touched It too bard, the gun weut off,
and I started toward the heron, which
wns wounded.
"I thought It would be a good scheme
to catch tbe bird and started to do so,
wben Its bill shot out like a sledge bummer nnd Btruek me between the eyes.
When I enme to my senses, lt wns dark,
and lt was several minutes longer before I could remember where I was or
what had happened. A littlo harder
und the bird would have killed inc. 1
shudder even yet wheu I think what
would hnve been the result if the bill
had struck one of my eyes."
The f,aet Gladiatorial Combat.
Gladiatorial games were prohibited
by an edict of the Emperor Constantino In A. D. S25, but from some cause,
probably tbe loudly expressed disapprobation of the people, the edict was
allowed to fall Into disuse, and its penalties wcro never visited on Its violators. Daring the reign of Honorlns
the defeat of the Goths In Italy was
celebrated by games, but In the niliist
of the lights ln the amphitheater ot
Vespasian a monk named Telemnchus
found bis way Into tbe arena and parted the combatants with a large processional cross.
The populace swarmed over the barricades and tore tho monk to pieces,
but tbe moral effect of the heroic net
was permanent, nnd In A. D. 404 an
Imperial edict abolished gladiatorial
sports In the Coliseum aud shortly nfter throughout the Roman empire. The
fight stopped by Telemnchus was the
last In the Coliseum, aud that structure
Is now consecrated to tbe honor of
Telemnchus and the Christian martyrs
wbo perished In tbe persecutions by
Nero and otber emperors.
Two Cruel Panlabmenta.
Tbe gantlope, or gantlet, was military and naval punishment for theft.
A man bad to run tbe gantlet of a
long file of bis fellow soldiers, each
provided wltb a switch, and to prevent
tbe sinner going too rapidly and to see
that no man. Impelled by motives of
friendliness or kindness, fulled to strike
bard, a sergeant walked backward, facing tbe aald sinner, with a halberd
pointed at the hitter's breast.
After a lengthy experiment this was
found to be Inconvenient nnd degrading, so recourse was bad to another
method, a variety of the same species
of torture. Tbe offender was tied to
four halberds, three In a triangle nnd
a fourth ncross. The regiment or company then filed off, the cnt-o'-nine-talls
was placed ln the bands of the first
man, who gave the culprit a Insb and
passed on, handing tbe cat to the second, wbo also gave a lash, and so tbe
game went merrily on until tbe offense
bad been expiated.—London Graphic.

Gauthkr, the young and hustling
butcher, of Slain street. He wasn't
however, us energetic or as hustling
a couple of years ago as he is today, and for a good reason—he
wasn't well. Having gone into business ere reaching Ins majority his de-
sre to succeed was such that no
hee*i wus paid to keeping the body
in tlie slate of health necessary to

the extra demands upon the system
It became run down to such an extent that epihitsy or falling sickness

freciuenl he consulted physicians aud
took some remedies, but without
beneficial results. Finally seeing Dr.

give tlKiu a trial. As to th-:; result
the I'ost uannot do better .than give
Mr. Gauthicr's story in his own
words : "'Yes," said Sir. (Jauthier,
"for nearly four years I suffered from
epihpsy or falling ills, which took
me without warning und usually hi
most inconvenient places. I am just
twmty-four years of age, and 1 Uiink
I started business too young and the
fear of failing spurred me to greater
efforts perhaps than was good for
my constitution, nnd the consequence
was that 1 became subject to those
attacks which came w'thout any
wanning whatsoever, leaving me terribly sick and weak afur they had
passed. I got*to dread their recur-
ren«*-j very much. I consulted doctors
and took their remedies to no purpose, the fits still troubled me. ]
saw Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advertise^! and determined to try them. I
did so, and iho medicine helped mo so
ttyuch that I gol more and kept on
taking them until today I am as
well, yes bettor, than I ever was, and
am nut tro-ubled at all by efpilepsy or

Snnller'a Adrentnre Wltb a Band ul
Mexican Bandits —Some Ex-icrl-
encea of the Tenor Mario— How L:t-
blnche Pnt a Bear to Fllfflit.
Many years since, when traveling
Willi somtt friends In Mexico, Cliailes
Santley was captured by Ualflireed
bandits and, being urable to pay ibe
large ransom demanded, caiTled off lo
Hie mountains. Over supper tbe sing
er, by no means weighed down by
bis misbap, chanced lo break into sou;-.
which so delighted the brigand chief
that he demanded an encore.
Santley saw his chance nnd e.\
pressed his willingness lo comply on
condition that lie nud lil° companions
were granted their release. The sup
gestlon wns accepted, 11 nil for over two
hours was the sluger's voice raised lu
such exquisite melody Hint the bandits,
true to (rbeir word, allowed 111 in am1
those wiih blm to depart.
The late Joseph Mans had n some
what si in 111' i- e.\pei'ii'ii"e. Vein's back,
when with a companion bulTcIo hunting on the American prairies, he was
captured by Indians ami carried lo
their camp. When nt liis wits' end
how to extricate himself from the
dileuimn, hla friend su/rgesled tin* pirv-
er of song. Forthwith he eoniinouml
an operatic selection Hint so delighted
bis cantors that they loosened 1,1s
bonds and ui'-i'U III ill. at Ihe point of
their spears, to eoiitlifuo.
Luckily his voice had n sniiorlllc effect upon (he Indians, who one by one
dropped asleep until, Just us be wns
on the point of stopping from exhaustion, the Inst pnssed inlo the realm*
of dreams. Then he nud his companion quietly stole nwny.
Ills wonderful voice on one occasion
placed the great tenor Mnrlo In n somewhat Invidious position. When traveling wltb some companions in Spain, he
fell Into the hands of a party of marauding gypsies, who demanded tbe
customary ransom. Mario, tickled nt
the situation, answered their request
In Impromptu song, which be delivered
with such exquisite mock dignity that
bis captors with unanimous acclamation elected blm captain of their band.
Tbe singer diplomatically acquiesced In
their decision, but lu Ihe course of the
following day contrived to make bis
escape with his friends.
On another occasion In Madrid the
same singer, as he was returning late
one night from the theater where he
wus engaged, was arrested by the police In mistake for a political discontent. In vain he asserted his Identity.
He wns carried before their chief, who
likewise smiled Incredulously at the
captive's asseverations.
Greatly angered, Mnrlo vehemently
demanded that his friends should be
forthwith communicated witb, but tbe
odlcial shook his head and remarked
that If Indeed he were the grent tenor
be possessed in his voice a sure means
or proving the truth of his words. Ten
minutes Inter Mnrlo was bowed out
with many regrets aud profuse apologies.
When traveling to Tnrls with some
other ladles, Mine, (iris! bnd a thrilling
adventure. At a small wayside station
a mnn entered the carriage, imd It soon
beenuie evident from bis threatening
gestures and eccentric behavior tbat he
was a dangerous lunatic.
Though ber companions were panic
stricken, Mine. Urlsl retained complete
presence of mind nnd wltb tbe utmost
composure begnn to sing. At once the
maniac was quiet; his whole attention
was riveted on that mugulflcent voice,
and he remained the most appreciative
of listeners until the train reached the
next station, where he wns secured. It
transpired subsequently that be wns n
maniac with homicidal tendencies who
had escaped from an asylum.
An amusing story Is told of Lablache,
Ihe celebrated bass singer. One dny
as be was strolling leisurely through n
I'reuch fair s cry was suddenly raised
that a bear bad escaped from the menagerie. The crowd fled In every <tl-
rcctlon—all save the singer, whose massive proportions precluded tbe Idea of
rapid motion. Amid Ihe general com
motion he among them all stood unmoved, calmly awaiting tbe advent of
the ferocious beast, which sure enough
came slouching rapidly toward blm.
Wben within a few feet, It halted ns
though to gather Itself together for a
final rush, wben Lablache stepped forward and from the lowest depths of
bis Immense cbest sent forth such a
thunderous roar that tbe terrified animal turned and Red.

This Man Was So Dad That II© Was
Almost Paralyzed—A Wonderful
C'nec and a Very Happy Cure Hy
This Excellent Remedy.
North Temiscamiague, Que., Jan.
6.—(Special)—At the flouglas Farm
neo.r here 1'ilves Mr. W. II. Jollihsloji,
who toduy considers himself a very
happy man indeed.
The cause of Mr. Johnston's happi-
■css is liis somewhat sudden anil
very remarkable recovery from the
most severo caso of rheumatism ever
seen in this county.
For a long time ho sudor e'd With
the rheumatism which gradually
grew worse till il llircfttoned his life.
His principal trouble was lu his left
side, nud il was so l-ad that his aecll
stiffeaed so that he could scarcely
move it, and was beginning lo foci
Paralysis. The pain would go away
for a time, but return with greater
force, and a strange feature of his
case was that after the pain would
leave any part, il lefl behind il that
prickly "pins and neodles" sensation.
He thought Umt perhaps his smoking tobacco had something to do
with it. and he gave this up, but re-
received no benefit at all until he
used Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This remedy he found to be a complete arnd absolute cure for his malady, nnd very soon after commencing its use, the pain began to leave
him and now he is strong and well.
That suoh an extreme case should
yield so easily and quickly proves
that Dodd's Kidney Pills Wll Curo
any case of Rheumatism.
A paper of pins is not without ils
fine points.
My creed is very simple—thnt goodness is the only reality.—Emerson.
When it comes to telling their ages
most women are old enough to know
Often Leads to Serious trouble Unless Prompt Stops Are Taken to
Check it—How This Can Best Be
Indigestion is a trouble that is
very common is infancy and early
childhood, and unless prompt measures are taketn to control it the result is bery often. It prevents the
vents the proper growth of the child
and weakens the constitution, so
that he is unable to resist other disease that are more dangerous. Fortunately, however, the trouble Is aa
that is easily controlled. l'ro|ier
food—not too much, but absolutely
pure—plenty of fresh air and Baby's
Own Tablets, freely administered according to the directions, will soon
put tlie sufferer right, and make
both mother and child happy. Mrs.
W. E. Bossum, of Kingston, Ont., is
one of the many mothers who has
proved the truth of this statement.
Sho says ; "When my little girl was
about three months old she had indigestion very badly. She was vomiting and had diarrhoea almost constantly. She was very thin, weighed
only four pounds, and although she
hod n ravenous appetite her food
did her no good whatever, 1 had
tried several medicines, but they did
mot help her. Then I heard of Baby's
Own Tablets, and procured a toy,
After giving her the tablets for a
few days, the vomiting and diarrhoea ceased, she began to improve
at once and grew plump and fat. I
nlways give her Iho tablets now
when she is ailing und tho result is
always good. Baby's Owm Tablets
are the best medicine I havo ever
used for a child."
These tablets will promptly* cure
all the minor ailments of little ones,
such as sour stomach, Indigestion,
colic, constipation, allny the irritation accompanying the cutting of
tenth, etc. They are good for children of all ages, and crushed to a
powder or dissolved in water can be
given witli absolute safety to tho
youngest infant. If you cannot obtain Baby's Own Tablets at your
druggists, Ihey will be sent postpaid
nt 2.1 cents a box by addressing tlie
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Broekville, Ont.
A GUARANTEE*-"! hereby certify
that I have mode a careful chemical
analysis of Baby's Own Tablets,
which I personally purchases in a
dru.2 store in Montreal. My analysis
has proved that lhe Tablets contain
absolutely i:r> opiate or narcotic ;
that thoy can lie given with perfect
safety to (lie youngest infnnt ; (hat
they are a safe and odlcknt medicine
for the troubles ihey are Indicated
to relieve and cure."

Coal Mines of This District.
Cranbrook Herald—
A, Dick, inspector of mines for East
Kootenay, returned laat week from
visit to Victoria. In an interview he
stated that the coal mining industry of
the Crowa Nest Pass is making rapid
progress. At Michel tbe company ia
taking out 600 tone of coal a day and ia
putting up 212 coke ovens. A large
number of tbe miners from Nanaimo
and other Vaucouver Island mines have
come over recently to work for the company at Michel, and the town is building
up rapidly. While a tunnel was being
run fiom lhe line of the tipple near the
creek to connect with No. 4 tuunel a
magnificent vein of coal 10 feet thick
waa discovered of tbe hardest and best
lump coal tbat has yet been discovered
in this part of America, Tbis coal is an
ideal domestic coal. Thia new tunnel is
to be 700 feet in length when complt ted,
and all the coal from No. 4 tunnel will
be brought out through it. It is expec.
ted that it will be completed next month.
At Coal creek quite a little town has
sprung up near the mines, which are increasing in shipping facilities all tbe
time. Of the six veins that bave been
uncovered for working, into which eigtit
tunnels have been run, Nos. 1 and 3 are
IS feet thick. The mlnea are turning
out 2000 tons a day from these veins
Fernie is very lively and a good deal of
building is going 011. At Morrissey the
coal company has erected buildings sufficient to accommodate about 200 vtork-
men. Considerable development has
been done in opening up the veins and
an immense lot of coal is ready for shipping, aud is ouly awaiting the completion of tbe Crows Nest Southern to oe
shipped. Quite a town has beeu built
up tbere, waiting for occupancy for the
arrival of tbe railway, wheu a Inrge force
of men will be put to work The town
site baa not yet been put on the market,
but Mr. Dick said I e thought lhat it
would be a good town very quickly. Bellies the dtifiing 011 the veins thai lias
been done, ventilating apparatus has
been put iu and all made ready, so that
wheu the railway reaches the 1,1 ne, pro
viding an outlet fur tlie product, shipping enn be commenced immediately.
