The Big Surplus is Rapidly
John Finch of Spokane Give* Some Very
Interesting Data on This Most
Important snhjMt.
J. A. Finch, one of the stockholders
and dlrectora of tbe St. Engene mine
at tbla place and one of tbe beat posted
mining men In the Northweat, waa In
Wallace, Idaho, a short time ago and
gave an interview to the Tribune. Mr.
Finch expressed the hope of the
full operation of the silver-lead mines
after January 1st. Be baaed his prediction on tbe rapid decline of the surplus lead now on tbe American market.
He said: "Not long ago the surplus lead
held by the smelting and refining company aggregated 60,000 ton*. That surplus has been reduced to 40,000 tons
and la steadily declining, and when It
reaches the 20,000 ton mark it will no
longer be conaldered a surplna for the
reason, that at no time during the most
prosperous days of silver and lead mining were there leu than 20,000 ton* of
lead In storage and In tranalt. Another
hopeful sign la tbe marked Indication of
a rise in the price of lead on tbe London market, which bid* fair In the near
fnture to reach the £15 psmi, which
means 875 per ton In American money.
When this point I* reached on tho London market It will greatly stimulate the
export trade and will draw heavily
from the silver lead mines. A number
of tho lead mine* of the United State*
will meet tbe representative* of the
smelting and redoing company in New
Vork City about the 35th, of this montb
and as a matter of course we cannot
•ay positively what the outcome will be
and while we do not look for long contracts all the indlcationa point to such
an agreement aa will warrant a revival
In tbe lead mlnea of tbe country."
"Do you think, Mr. Flncb, that the
smelter combine wonld consent to a reduction In the market price of lead as
a means to stimulating production!"
"By no meana will the combine submit to anything of the kind while a
surplus exists. From a business standpoint tbe comtln* cannot a Jcrd *« relax the market by voinntary decline in
the price for the reason that for the
entire surplna tbe combine now baa on
hand it ha* paid 4 cent* per pound and
decline In lb* market to 3 1-2 cent*
wculd mean a losa of between S3,000,000
and (4,000,000 to the smelter trust on
tbe aur plus already on hand to aay nothing of existing contract*. This sacrifice
the smelter trust la unwilling to make
ar.d from a business standpoint It cannot he expected to do ao. The hope of
tbe lead mining Industry depend*, a* I
have aald, on tbe reduction of the snr.
plus, and until that la done there will
be no stability In lead mining, but present indication* point to an early adjustment and tbe surplus will be so far
exhausted aa to be of no material Influence In tbe future market price and
tbe making of contracta for tbe future
outpnt of tbe mlnea.
I may be greatly mistaken In my prediction of tbe future, but I confidently
expect a marked revival In mining operation* after January lat. Much, however, will depend upon the outcome of
the meeting In new York City the later
part of the month."

Manitoba Llannr Law Upheld.
Tbe Imperial council decides that the

enact a law prohibiting the sale of
liquor*. Decision of Manitoba full
court reseived.
London. Nov.22. Tbe judicial committee of tbe privy council delivered judgment tc-day in lhe case of tbe Manitoba
liquor Act. Thedeclslon was a triumph
for the province, tbelr Lordships answering In the affirmative, tbe question
•ubmlt'.ed to them a* to whether the
province ha* jurisdiction to enact the
"Matiltc In Liquor Act."
Their Lordships delivered no judgment on any of the subsldary questions
submitted, saying that no naeful answer could be alven. The more Important of these subsidiary queatlona were,
whether the province had jurisdiction
to make regulations governing tbo sale
or storing of liquor by brewera, distiller* or other persona licensed by tbe
Dominion government; and whether
the provlsiona ef the Manitoba Act interfere with or Infringe en the rlghta
of the Hudson's Bay Company aa guaranteed to that corporation by varlona

Tbelr Lordships in their judgment
describe tbe provisions of the Act as

A Bridge Needed.
One of the first things that the government should donext spring In tbe
way of roads, trails and brldgea Is to
construct a driving bridge across tbe
St. Mary'* river just below th* smelter
•ite By this meana tbe mouth of Perry
Creek would be brought, by the con-
ati notion of a road, within four mllea
of Marysville. and Old town would be
only 0 mile* distant. The building of
this bridge would very materialy help
tbe Perry Creek district because it
would give an impetus to development
work In that camp by making It within easy distance of the smelter.
System ot Cheap Smelllar.
Tbe statement made by Mr. Miner,
president of tbe Granby Mining, Smelting and Power company, the other day,
that tbe improvements at the Granby
smelter, now under construction, are be*
ing paid for entirely out of tbe profile of
the last and this year's operations, is extremely satisfactory. This company lias
not been very forward in bringing out a
balance sheet and report, but, ou the
contrary, tbe main subscribers to tbe
shares are the original subscribers, when
the various companies now consolidated
were promoted, and if tbey are satisfied
the public has not any very serious reason of complaint. Thit, company's operations have for tome reason or another
always been subjected to more tbsn
ordinary amount of criticism, but in
looking back over its history it is difficult to see where greater economy of organization or efficiency of working could
bsve been attained. The ore in the
Knob Hill aud Ironsides is exceedingly
low grade. It has always beeu felt that
ita successful treatment was in tbe nature
of an experiment. But certainly ifit
had not been successful there would
have been something very far out in tbe
oiiginal calculations of it* nature and
value. It has, apparently on the contrary, proved fully aa amenable to treatment aa waa expected, and tbe various
economics oiiglnated in connection with
the mine and smelter have proved most
efficient and valuable, According to Mr.
Miner the coat of smelting ha* already
been reduced to li 90 a ton and the increase in tbe plant, now being paid out
of profits, is expected not merely to double the tonnage but to still further decrease the cost of treatment per ton.
Under these circumstances there is fairly
good authority for the assertion that lhe
enteiprise is a proved success.
The Doubting Thomas Is having a hard
time of It In Marysville theae daya, and
the Knocker, like Othello, I* finding
that hla occupation It gone. In aplte of
the pessimistic prediction* and dnblona
shakings of the head, the town continues to forge ahead. Tbe statement*
made by the smelter management la
being more than verified by the expenditure of thousands of dollar* In money
and the systematic purauance of plane
laid down for the construction of tbe
smelter. Mr. McKenzie, who la in
charge of construction, say* that the
aa w mill will be read y for botineaa by the
firat of the week. L. F. Anatln, the
tmelter expert has returned and la busy
supervising the excavating forth* smelter site. The plana have been prepared
and are now here. Next week 180 men
will be put to work, and nothing la to
be lett undone to puah the work of
construction as rapidly a* pottiblc
throughout the winter. Tlerney &
Co., have a big force of men at work on
grading the spur, and that work will be
completed by tbe first of the year. All
over tbe town carpenter* are busy putting up new buildings, and everywhere
there Is a rnatle of prosperity and a
hum of business.
These are the conditions In Marysville today, a town only three week*
old, yet a sturdy infant with every
prospect of being an important busloest
polut. The men who are buying pro, •
erty now, are the lucky onea, alnce
they are getting in on the ground floor
at pricea for choice lota that will appear ridiculously low six month* from
now. There ia no question that lot* on
tbe main street will be selling for 11,000
to $1,.loo by next June. This has been
tbe blstory of property In all other
towns In either Kootenay, far less
fortunate in the their location* and Dual-
nesj bases than Marysville.
The Knocker and Doubter haa been
put out oi business In Marysville. They
will have to hunt for other fluids to
do tneir growling and grunting.
Like a Fairy Stery.
Spokesman-Review: Colonel W. H.
Dewey of Idaho ha* created a sentation
in Chicago relative to tbe mineral resources of the silver ttale, and more particularly as tu tbe wonderful gold deposits which he ha* recently discovered.
According to an interview recently pub
lished iu tbe Chicago Record-Herald tbe
colonel stands * chance of becoming a
second Monte Crlito. The article ia as
"Colonel W. H. Dewey of Idaho be.
lievea he ia tbe richest man in the world
or that be soon will be. There will be
trumpet tidinga from Idaho within two
or ihree month*, he says, tiding* that
will proclaim Idaho an American Transvaal or a U. iteil ;.Stslcs Klondike, that
will pale the fame ol Cripple Creek or
any other old digglnga. The colonel

filled with pure gold, al! extracted from
just three pounds of quarlz. He knowa
a man who made a bet that a pound of
rock from tbe new Idaho field would result ii*woni foo to fSo worth of gold.
"Colonel Dewey is *n old time westerner. He rounded Cape Horn ,34 year*
ago. He is already a multimillionaire,
even if these new protpeels do not make
him Rockefeller's rival. He Is a bale

H. L. Stephens, a former resident of
South Last Kootenay, but for the last

Tbe ore iron/ the Sullivan mint will
be treated by a process not commonly
employed with silver lead or**, aays
the Nelson Miner. Tbe ore will be
first roasted in what is called a band
roaater and then smelted. Snliivan
ore la of that nature that ao treated no
flux will be required. For th* purpose
of roasting, yard* 250x000 feet ire being leveled off.
The mine ba* now folly 100,000 ton*
of ore blocked ont so that there la an
ample aupply for the smeller for many
years to come. The refinery which
la to be constructed at the alt**) time
will be of sufficient capacity to treat
the bullion resulting from tbt reduction of 200 tons of ore 1 day.
Though primarily being built for the
Sullivan mlnea alone the smelter may
eventually treat custom ore but It will
not be necessary to do ao for fluxing
purposes. The North Star mine pro-
ducea both galena and carbonatea of
aliver and these could be handled to
advantage in tbla smelter. Farther up

claim, which will no doubt develop Into
a producer of large quantities of laid
ore and it alao would ba tributary to

which will completely overwhelm ourselves If we don't meet it with a brace.
A nervous shock is nhvnys an unwelcome
visitor even in a doctor's family, ho I
think it only fair to wnrn you. I have an
nunt— sole survivor of her species, I hope.
Her most marked characteristic is an uncontrollable desire to regulate other people's affairs. She appears suddenly in
your midst, takes you in band and until
aoiuo more favornhle opportunity turni
up keeps on crushing you, your spirits
nnd your habits. I fear this devotion to
her family will lead her to take us in

for she is not likely to find a belter field
for action in some time, for I haven't an
uumarried relative left. »So prepare for
the onslaught"—
"Why. we haven't invited her."
"Child, that is a trifle which she never considers. If fIio did she'd never
leave home. Anyhow, though the outlook
Is bad* we're three to one, and perhaps
we may contrive to oust her. If my own
powers of invention fail me, you'll step
in the breach, won't you, Fred?"
Fred Post, at that time our guest,
chimed in enthusiastically. Such malicious detraction, such fiendish plots, I
trust it may never again be my lot to listen to. I was dumfounded by the spite
these two fellows displayed, the more so

"I told yo5 so, Annie. Aunt Jem Is
coming, and I'm to meet her at the 4:30
train," he RrouueH"
Jim departed maifully to his unpleasant task, and Vvci and I spent the interval peering cu'tously between the half
closed blinds a* the passersby. A rattle
over cobbletones and an Impatient
•'Whoal" 'Unounced my husbaud's return. %a poor man sat swathed In
nhawl traps, bags, mackintoshes nnd
urabrdas, three trunks crowded the roof
of ' rickety cab, and a red faced driver
wv engaged In obeying the directions of
. thrill voice that dominated the scene.
And at last from out of this confusion
appeared a tall, angular woman, sharp
nosed, thin lipped, wrapped In a hideous
brown shawl. Prudence conquering desire, 1 came forth to greet my unwelcome
guest, convinced on the instant that Jim's
description had iu nowise, done her justice.
"So this Is your wife? I thought she'd
be very different. Yoti used to be so
fond of strapping blonds, Jim. Do you
remember the one you rushed at Kx-
inoreV" And she giggled unpleasantly,
revealing n set of obviously false teeth
that reminded me of nothing so much as
• row of tombstones.
My busbnnd grew white with rage.
"Never mind, my dear," continued
Aunt Jem; "I think I'll suou feel quite at
home with you. I'll try to make myself
useful, so your husband can count upon
my most energetic support aud assist-
"Excuse me, aunt; that will be quite
unnecessary. My friend, Mr. limit; my

Aunt Jem rested a pair of disapproving
eyes upon the unhappy Fred.
"1 Htippose I'm to havo n room to myself r
"Certainly, Aunt Jem. .Martha will take
yon up stairs at once." Aunt Jem's nose
wrinkled disdainfully as she peered into
the little room allotted her adjoining

prefer his room to this one. In the meantime just push the bed up against tho
wall; pull out that table and take away

Hut at this juncture I lied to the kitchen and sought to slille my forebodings
with the thought of the nice dinner I had
prepared. But scarcely had 1 given a few
needed directions before Aunt Jem's nose
came snilling through the door.
"Flsbl J know you don't preparo It to

This continued dfir-p.,, mn following
week—diuiuffc room, kitchen, parlor, the
doctor's reception room, even his patient.., fell beneath Aunt Jem's criticism.
Then criticism passed to complaint, com-
plaiut to fault finding. Our timid hints
that her presence was unwelcome fell
upon unheeding ears. Aunt Jem had determined to take us in charge, so In
chnrge she did take us, and that with u
vengeance.  My faithful maid of all work
rebelliously announced that the aunt or
she must leave the kitchen.
"I can't stand her, ma'am, at all. It's
bad enough when she mixes with the
cooking, but to tdl me I look like a fool
in my finery, oh!

But beither r"«*chsnfed her any information, and *.oon afterward they bolted
themselves in Fred's room, leaving the
enemy with one eye glued to the keyhole.
Soon a cloud of smoke filtered through
the cracks nnd keyholes pungent with
odors that converted Aunt Jem's room
into a veritable pesthouse. I could hear
her rummaging noisily about; then a couple of doors slammed, followed by a silence which remained unbroken until
Jim appeared, with the triumphant announcement that the experiment was a
success. But no aunt appeared to question this assertion. Fearing that the
fumes had overpowered her, I stole up to
her room. Empty! There, snugly ensconced in my own bed, lay Aunt Jem.
"My dear," stfe announced as 1 entered, "I couldn't stand that frightful smell,
so' I'll sleep with yoti, and Jim can share
his friend's room. Be sure yott don't disturb me when you come up." And with
that she blew out the candle und settled
herself comfortably to sleep.

at the breakfast table with a smiling

my fainting hopes, and I followed my

It was a perfect spring afternoon, and
0 little party of three,, mounted on mules,
wuv plodding along the track that leads
from Cape Spartcl to Tangier.
(iiierson, the novelist, allowed the reins
to drop round his animal's neck and proceeded to roll n cigarette. By his side
rode an upright, elderly man with close
cropped hair and a keen faee, and the
third member.of the parly, n young girl
of ahinii 120, was Home 50 yards ahead.
"It has been a first class sort of day,"
Observed the elder man. "Cclia and I
owe you a debt of gratitude for having
looked after us this week iu Tangier."
"The luck has been on my side," relumed (Jrierson, with n lough.   "You see,
1 came over here from Gibraltar ns a certain young person's society was exercising a depressing Influence on me."
"Did she bore you?" asked Ardell.
"The reverse. She lias charmed me
more than any other girl for a longer pe-
flod than I like to think. The point is
that her parents insist on tier having
t.uthing to do with me, which at least
shows they are not wanting in good
sound common sense."
Ardell laughed and gazed contemplatively on (he surrounding stretch of country.
"I could put in another month here
well, but I'm afraid it would hardly suit
Celffla," he said, with a nod toward the
trim figure riding in front of them.
"Is she in a huge hurry to see England'/" asked Grlerson. lie knew a little
of his companion's history. He was a
wealthy Australian sheep farmer who
had lately sold his run and determined
on a visit to Bugluud.
"Xot so much that, but eagerness to
meet the man."
The novelist opened his eyes.
''Oh, is she in love too?" he said, with
a sigh.
"Yes; I had a young Englishman on
the fa tin as manager. He was with us
about live years, a decent sort of fellow,
a gentleman by birth. You meet a good
many of that sort up and down tho runs
tu the bush." said Ardell. "Eventually
he fell Iu love with Cello and asked my
Consent. I liked the chop and gave it.
Then one day there cnine a letter telling
I:it:i there had been n big snap In his family chain anil that be had stepped iuto
uti eatule and money iu England."
"I know," nodded the novelist. "I've
used him in a good many of my books.

"Yes; he said lie would return nnd

The girl, with a laugh, turned round to
him and waited. Ciriersou rode on and
kept a little ahead of the others for the
res! of the way. His face was unusually
grave, and he neeined buried in thought.
They reached the town, nnd, wishing
to do some shopping, he separated from
hla companions. When nt length he nlso
arrived at the hotel, he caught sight of e

the hall. He was chatting to a giri at

said, with a little mulling nod of farewell.
< J Hereon watched her disappear, turned fo ihc young man and, Unking his arm

which there wns a seat.
"You know, it's really too bad of you to

fully. "But there's no alternative. I feel
bound to tell yon what an awful scoun

"What on earth has happened, Grier

The novelist opened his mouth to speak,
but paused ns he caught sight of a light
figure tripping down the staircase. He
gripped the younger man's urm und nodded in her direction. The girl—it was
Celia Anlell—crossed tbe hall some three
yards in front of them nnd entered a
drawing room without seeing them.
Trevor breathed heavily. He did not
speak. His eyes were fastened on the
door through which Celia had vanished.
"Sufficient explanation, eh?" said
Grlerson. "A month or so after you left

she might forget also!" he continued
lamely. "I know It wns playing it horribly low down." He looked up at Grlerson anxiously. "Do you tblnk.it will
matter so very much to her?"
"Oh, no!" retorted the novelist airily.
"She has only lavished on you every
scrap of love she has to give, and finding
you arc not worth it will only break her
heart. But that's a mere trifle and not
worth considering. You will be able
to marry Lady Constance aud boast a
wife with a title."
Young Trevor rose to his feet, lie
was very white.
"What do you think you will do?"
continued the novelist. "You see, If you
happen to have actually proposed to
Lady Constance"—
"I haven't!" put In the other man
A slight gleam came into, Grlerson'a
eyes as he watched his companion.
Suddenly Trevor swung round, on him,
"Going to play the man?" said"the novelist quietly.
Trevor nodded and walked sharply toward the door of the room in which the
girl was. Grierson came after him at a
run nnd laid a hand on his sleeve.
"One moment, Archie!" he said rapidly. "Lady Constance—you thought her
prt'ty, bright, intelligent. You had money, she a title. Head turned a little?"
He paused. "But it wasu't love, not
love, Archie?"
Trevor looked at him for a moment,
and a ghost of a smile trembled on his
"No, not love," he said decidedly.
Then he opened the door and strode in.
Grierson walked along the corridor to
the billiard room in a thoughtful frame
of mind. He glanced Iu and saw it was
empty. A second or so afterward Lady
Constance approached him.
"Ah!" he exclaimed. "Come along In
here!   I want you to listen while I talk!"
"I have been doing that off nnd on for
some years," she said, with a smile.
"Yes; but this time I shall be very interesting. I can't remember anything
I've so wanted to tell you."
They sealed themselves on a lounge.
"Are you ready?" he began.
She nodded.
"Very well; listen to this: Archie Trevor will never have the exquisite honor of
becoming your husband!" he aald dramatically.
He was watching her narrowly. He
saw a slight touch of color pass over her
cheeks, but there was a smiling look In
the eyes still.    He was satisfied.
The bantering tone dropped from his
voice, and he told the story to her quietly. She listened intently and at the conclusion Indicated the direction of the
drawing room with a little excited gesture. „
"And he Is actually In there with her
now?" she cried quickly.
"And she's just deliriously happy," he
said, with a nod. He turned round to
her.   "Are-you glad?"
"Yes," she answered softly. "Very
glad he played the man."
Grlerson jumped up from his sent and
stood In front of her. His face had
lighted up again, and there was a humorous twinkle iu his eyes.
"Don't you see?" be cried. "Now that
you cannot,marry the man your parents
picked for you, obviously the only thing
you can do ti to marry tho man you
Would choose for yourself."
"But I haven't chosen," she protested.
"Ah, but you would if you dared!" he
exclaimed. "Just forget you're a lady of
title, forget tho desirability of marrying
a man of immense wealth, strike out n
line for yourself aud marry tho man who
has adored you for ten years. It will
mean a bit of a tussle with the parents,
but think how furious the fun will be."
She looked up at him doubtfully,
"Yes; I'm serious In just one thing,"
he said pleadingly.
Archie Trevor's voice was heard from
the other end of the hall.
"GriersonI" he was crying. "I want

The novelist turned excitedly to Lady

"Can't!" Grlerson called back, with hla
eyes on the girl sitting on the lounge.

It Is no exaggeration to assert, said
an asylum doctor of long nn,d varied
experience, that there are scores of men
nnd women in our asylums who have
literally been sent there through excess
of joy. Many of these cases which nre,
in my opinion, the saddest of all have
come under my own observation.
I remember In the very first asylum
with which I was connected one of the
patients was a strikingly handsome
nnd very well educated man, who was
as sane as you or I except on one point.
Ho was really n mnn of considerable
wealth, but his delusion was that he
was n pauper, and bo would tell the
most pitiful tales of his. destitution,
begging, with tears in his eyes, for n
few coppers with which to Iniy bread.
According to the story told me, lie
wns the only son of n wealthy merchant. In his youth he had fallen
among evil companions nnd had led
such a dissolute life that his father
not ouly threatened to disinherit hlin.
but forbade him over to enter his house
again. After Hint he seems to.have
sunk Into the lowest depths of poverty
until be wns glad to earn a few coppers by selling papers or matches In
the streets.
It wns at this last and lowest stage
thnt news came to him that his father
had died Intestate and that he was heir
to all his vast fortune. The sudden
news completely turned the man'B
brain and brought on such n condition
of excitement that he had to be scut
to an. asylum, nnd when he calmed.
down ngnln lie had lost all recollection
of his good fortune, und nothing can
shake his delusion that be- is ou the
verge of starvation.
Another patient In the same nsylrfln
wus n young and in his lucid moments
n most intelligent fellow, whose "brain
was turued," ns tho saying Is, ou learning thnt he had passed an examination.
lie had sat for the matriculation exntu-
Inntlon at the University of London, on
passing which he had set his httrt
and had asked a friend in London to
wire the result as soon ns the unincs
were screened at Burlington-House.
About three weeks later came n fatal
telegram, "Failed—sorry," which sent
lhe young mnu Into the lowest depths
of despair, for he was too old to sit

came another telegram, "Passed honors

Disappointed love sends many people to asylums, but it Is very seldom
that success in wooing drives a man
mad. It had this strange effect, however, on one of my late patients. The
girl he loved had gone out to India to
keep house for her brother before he
hud screwed up his courage to tlie point
of proposing to her, but nn offer followed by mull very quickly after her.
AVeeks and months passed, and no answer came to tho impatient lover until,
after waiting two years in despair, he
became engaged to n girl who hud
nothing but her money lings to recommend her nnd for whom he had not a
particle of love. Scarcely, however, was
his fate scaled than ho received the
long despaired of letter from India, accepting his offer and explaining thnt
the girl's brother had received and mislaid the letter, which had .only Just
been found and had come Into her
Within an hour of the receipt of this
letter tho man wns a raving maniac,

I doubt whether ho will ever recover

In another remarkable case It was
lhe joy at seeing her husband again
that robbed a lady patient of her reason. Her husband wns the captain of
a merchant ship which wns reported
to have gone down with all hands. The
widow had deeply mourned her husband for nearly a year, when one day
ou returning from a walk she found
him sitting In Ihc drawing room as
bale nnd robust ns over.
With n shriek she fell unconscious on
the floor, nnd when she recovered her
reason wns gone. It seems thnt her

When a polished table Is stained by a

At intervals of eight or ten miles
along the public, highway, Usually in
connection with the skyds stations, are
inns where the traveler will Invariably
find tbe comforts it not the luxuries"
of life—plenty of food and shelter, bed

furniture or velvet carpets or eggshell
china, but always neat lace curtains at
every window, sometimes in the windows of the stables.
A luxurious American will have to
deny himself much that he Is accustomed to at home and will encounter
experiences and customs that are new
and novel to him. But If he Is reasonable in his requirements and behaves
himself like u gentleman he will always meet with a hospitable although
a homely welcome. The Norwegian hotel keepers measure our appetites by

There Is no style about the hotels,
nnd the service is poor. The household
work Is all done by the landlord and
his wife and daughters. There are no
electric bells, and If you want anything you usually have to bunt for It
nnd help,yourself. It Is the custom of
the country lor tlie travelers to make
themselves at home, and you are sometimes compelled to look after your own
luggage or it is liable to be left. But
you will recover it again after a time.
The people are honest, considerate and
unselfish, but unpretentious In their
hospitality. There are no locks on their
doors, for none is needed. Burglars
and thieves are absolutely unknown.
Tbe bedrooms arc barren of ornaments and easy chairs that we are accustomed to at home. There are no
carpets and no rugs on the floor. All
the appurtenances arc plain and substantial, without any effort at show
and very little idea of convenience.
The beds nre good, but usually the only
cover is a comfortable seven or eight
luetics thick and as heavy and unwieldy as a feather bed. You can't
tuck It In at the bottom or at the sides,
and It Is always sliding off to tbe floor.
It is too much covering for an ordinary
sleeper, and when the nights are warm,
as they often arc, you are compelled to
choose between a chill and suffocation.
The pillows are another nuisance.
There nre usually a bolster of feathers
about the size of n barrel and a little
bit of a 4 by 0 pillow an inch or two
thick, with pretty trimmings upon it.
The big pillow Is too big, and the Utile one Is two small, aud you solve the
dilemma by rolling up your overcoat
mto a ball and using that Instead.
There Is plenty of fresh, heavy, homemade linen—large, square towels that
havo been woven under the same roof
during the long winter days.
The breakfast Is abundant and often
terrifying. You nre nt first confronted
wltb five or six different kinds of
cheese, nn equal" variety of cold ments,
tinned fish, smoked herring nnd salmon, cold boiled ham, three or Jour kinds
of cold sausage, strips of dried reindeer meat nnd half a dozen different
jams and preserved fruits. You arc
expected to partake freely of that sort
of provender nnd usually do so until
you learn by experience that dried fish,
boiled eggs, veal cutlets and other hot
food will soon follow if you are patient. The coffee is usually good, and
there is always an abundance of rich,
thick cream. There Is no warm bread,
but five or six kinds of cold bread baked from wheat, ryo nnd oat flour, besides the national "flntbrod," which no
Norwegian table Is ever without.
Tho dinner is a formidable affair after the fashion of tho ordinary European table d'bote, with soup, lish,
roast, salad, preserves and pudding,
while for supper you get the same assortment of cheese, cold meats, flsh,
sausage and preserves that you have
had for breakfast and two or three hot
dishes. Fish Is'the staff of life and
salmon the mainstay. It Is served iu
some form at every meal, fried at
breakfast and supper and boiled for
dinner, with strips of cold smoked
salmon of a deep rich color on the side
at all meals.
Tho lakes and rlvcrB are well stocked
with salmon trout, which are caught

" Why a Horse Eats Often.
The horse cnu conveniently eat for
twenty hours out of the twenty-four.
A horse which'ls in good health has a
good appetite at all times nnd Is able
to stand plenty of work nnd Is rarely
on the sick list. To be a good feeder,
especially on a Journey, is a great recommendation lu the opinion of every
good Judge of horseflesh. The rensou
of n horse being such n constant eater
is that Its stomach Is really small In
proportion to the size of Its body, nnd
therefore It requires feeding often, not
less than four times a day, two of
which should be early lu the morning
and nt night, while hay should in tho
stall bo always within its reach.
Eat Live Fish.
Tlie Jnpnnesc practice refined cruelty
to delight their palates. They believe
that the fish called tlie dal Is most delicious when eaten alive. An expert
Japanese carver can dexterously remove five-sixths of the edible matter
from Its bones without touching a vital
part. During this cruel operation the
lish is kept nllve by wet seaweed which,
being placed over Its gills, enables It to

Heal and Vitality
For tie Old People.
Wasted muscles, shattered nerves and failing strength may
result from old age as well as from disease.  As old age creeps j*
on vitality is lowered, the heart beats more slowly, the blood mr
becomes thin and watery and the power of resistance  is less>w
ened.   It is the old people above all others who require   the
new life and energy which comes with the use of   Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food.
Scores and hundreds of old people depend on Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food to restore their exhausted nerve force and replace
their wasted tissues. It calms and quiets the nerves, gradually
and certainly enriches the blood and builds up the system, and
makes old people, feel again the thrill of new life and vigor in
their shrivelled arteries. From childhood to old age this famous
Food Cure is the greatest blessing which medical science has
bestowed on mankind.

Was in the Clutch of Bright's Disease^—Suffered All the Symptoms
of This Fearful Malady—But He
Took Bodd's Kidney Pills in Time
Ottawa, Oct. 118.—(Special)—A fortunate young man is Frank Char-
trand of this city, for by the merest
chance lie was saved from lhat modern curse so dreaded by doctors,
Bright's Disease, the incurable malady of tho Kidneys.
The story of Mr.Ohartrand's escape
from this dreadful disease is best
told in his own words :
" I had been greatly troubled by
my kidneys for two years, since having a dose of tho grip. I suffered
with bdekucUe and I always felt
drowsy and very heavy in the limbs,
With frequent severe headaches, ami
oftener still severe pains in the top
of my head which prevented me from
doing my work as I would like to do
it. Often my fingers and lege would
cramp and occasionally I fait pains
in tiie loins, and a vory heavy disw.y
reeling with shortness of breath, and
pain in tho left side. Sometimes I
would eat very good meals and other
times I would take a biscuit and a
cup of tea, and that would finish my
meal. I had tender spots over the
back of the spine and felt very tired
iu tho region of the kidneys, with a
dragging, heavy ' feeling across _ the
loins, in short there was no doubt I
was suffering from Bright's Disease.
"I kept taking the medicines the
doctors gave me all this time, but
they did me no good. A few weeks
ago I chanced to tell a friend that 1
had given up hope.
' ' Why don't you try Todd's Kidney Pills ?' he told me.
"I went directly to the drug store
and got three boxes, which 1 have
used and which have so much improved my health that without hesitation I say I am sure it is but a
matter of a short time till 1 become
completely and permanently cured."
"Vot's his name," sai'd one English-speaking Mennonite to another

his query in a more direct, form.
"Vot's your name, Sir ?" The minister, who happened to bo looking in

uttered the one word, "Aksim."

One Railroad Official Who Has All
Work and No Play.
The chief train dispatcher "handles the
power," distributes the cars to the various stations, decides what freight trains
shall be run and is In immediate charge
of the countless details that arise in the
operation of trains. The duties of tbe
superintendent and the trainmaster keep
them away from the office about half the
time, traveling up and down tho line,
stopping overnight at important stations
and terminals. The chief dispatcher is
always at headquarters and is the man of
details. He Js assisted by a "trick dispatcher" for each dispatching district.
Like the sentinels at Gibraltar, the three
trick dispatchers never leave their post
ungunrded. It may happen for a few
minutes Borne Sunday night that there ia
not n train running, "not a wheel a-turnia
on the division," as the men say, but
there sits the dispatcher, the ever ready
representative of the official staff, the incarnation of alert administration. Where
business is heavy and the management is
progressivo there is a night chief also,
who thus renders the position of chief
dispatcher uninterrupted.
These chiefs work 12 hours each, as the
nervous tension is less than that of A
trick dispatcher, who Is "glued to the
train wire" his entire tour. In the absence of a night chief the details are looked after by the trick dispatcher, whose
work becomes much more responsible.
The chief in such a case usually comes
down after supper aud maps out the
night work and sometimes breaks in later
with instructions on the train wire, which
Is "cut in" at his room.
The railroad man is seldom entirely out
of touch with his work. The telegraph
sounder lulls the tired chief to rest and
wakes him In the morning. So trained la
his ear thnt if wanted at night the dispatcher has to "sound" tho'private call
on the wire only a few times to elicit a
response from tho sleeping chief. On
Sundays the chief Is on band most of the
day in obedience to the unwritten railroad eommnndment, "Six days shalt thou
Inner, nnd the seventh come down to tho
office nnd catch up." In most occupations "all work nnd no piny makes Jnek
n dull hoy," but in railroading It makes
him n bright boy, so stimulating and tat-
(mating is the excitement of tbe work.1
Headaches, Backaches, Dizziness,
Poor Appetite and Insomnia the
Outcome—How to Avert These
From the Heview, Windsor, Ont.
Only those engaged in the teaching
profession realize how much care,
worry und perplexity Is met with
daily. It is therefore little wonder
t hat there are so mn ny heal th
breakdowns, especially among young
ladies who follow this culling. Miss
Christine Pare, of Ojibway, Ont., is
oiu! who bus suffered nruch in this respect. To a reporter of the Windsor
Review, Miss Pare said : "For several years, while teaching school, 1
tried several doctors and medicines,
but got no relief. 1 bocam-j so badly
run down that I thought possibly a
Change of employment'would give me
relief. I gave up my school and
tried otiier duties, but the result was
disappointing as the trouble seemed
to have taken a firm hold upon me;
The headaches grew more and more
severe, my appetite failed me, and I
wits frequently compelled to take a
rest in order to overcome dizziness.
A friend advised me to try l>r. Williams' Pink Pills. I decided to try
a box, anil before they weie all used
1 found mueh relief. I continued taking the pills for some time longer,
every day gaining new health and
strength, and now I feel as well as
ever I did in my life, anil am never
bothered with the old troubles. You
may say, therefore, that there is nothing 1 can recommend so highly us
!)r. Williams' Pink Pills."
Young girls who are pale nnd
weak, who suffer from backaches,
headaches, loss of appetite, palpitation of the heart, and other symptoms that overcome so many in
early womanhood, will find a certain

Tlit custom of wearing mustaches did
not prevail In France until the reign of
Louis Philippe, when It became obligatory in tho whole French army. In England tho mustache was worn by hussars
after the peace of 1815, and it was not
until the close of the Crimean war that
English civilians as well as English soldiers In general woro hair oa the lip.
Shortly after tho mustacho came Into

pointed to his lip and called put derisively:

Every Mother Should Be in a Position to promptly Relieve the'Minor Ailments of Her Little Ones.
Tlie baby who is always plump always has a good appetite, always
has a clear eye and a rosy check,
and is always active and playful, is
the choicest treasure this life affords.
The medicine which keeps babies in
such a condition or which restores
them to iL when they are ill is certainly a priceless boon to humanity.
There are many medicines which produce sleep, bait their action upon the
child is similar to that which whisky
or opium has upon a fat 11 grown man.
They deaden and stupefy and are the
most injurious things which can be
given to children.
The tanly safe course is to use nature's remedies. Nature has provided a vegetable cure for every ill. and
her remedies for children's disorders
are scientifically compounded in
Jluhy's Own Tablets. For diarrhoea,
const i pa I ion, colic, simple fever,
croup, irritation when teething, indigestion and all the disorders of
children so familiar to mothers, this
remedy is conceded by the medical
profession to be without nn equal,
its effect is gentle, soothing, promptly curative and never-failing. It will
save pain, anxiety, doctor bills and
perhaps a life. All mothers who
have used Baby's Own Tablets for
their little ones speak of them in
terms of warmest praise. Mrs. Ben.
Seward, Forfar, Ont., says: "I have
used Baby's Own Tablets and can
highly recommend them to all mothers. My baby was cutting his teeth,
and was very cross when I lirst gave
them to him. They acted like magic;
he cut his teeth almost without my
knowing it, and gave him such ease
that they proved a blessing both to
tho child and myself. He has not
been sick since I gave them to him,
and I would not be without them in
the house." Baby's Own Tablets can

These threads quickly become bard

White arsenic is the form in which or-
senh is taken by the Den'snnts of Btyria
and the Tvrol. Professor SchaUeruehec
of Giietz was the first to call attention to
this practice in a report which he piadtf
In 1822 to the Austrian government ou
the cause cf the numerous deaths from
arsenic poisoning in those districts. He
found that arsenic was kept iu most of
the houses in upper Styria under tho
name of "bydrach," evidently a corruption of "huttenrauch," or furnace smoke.
His statements made were subsequently
confirmed from personal observation by
a Dr. McClngan of Edinburgh, hut for
ninny years afterward the arsenic eaters
were generally disbelieved in, and it was
not till 1800 that-e. Ileise published convincing evidence.
Arsenic is principally eaten by hunters
and woodcutter* with the object of warding off fatigue and improving their staying powers. Owing to the fact that the
sale of arsenic is illegal iu Austria with
out a doctor's certificate it is difficult to
obtain definite information ot n habit
wliich Is kept ns secret as possible. According to Ur, Lorenzo, in that district
the arsenic is taken fasting, usually in a
cup of coffee, the first dose being minute,
but increased day by day until it sometimes nmounts to the enormous dose ot
12 or 15 grains. He found thnt the nr
sonic eaters were usuuily I )ng lived,
though liable to sudden death. They have
a very fresh, youthful appearance ami
arc seldom attacked by infectious dis
After the first dose the usual symptoms
of slight arsenic poisoning are evident,
but these soon disappear on continuing
the treatment.
In the arsenic factories of Salzberg it is
Stated that workmen who are not arsenic
caters soon succumb to the fumes. The
manager of one of these works informed
Mr. Ileise that he had been medically advised to eat arsenic before taking up his
position, no considered that no one
should begin the practice before 12 years
old nor after 30 nnd thnt in nny case after 50 years of age the daily dose should
be gradually reduced, since otherwise
sudden death would ensue. If a confirmed arsenic enter suddenly attempts
to do altogether without the drug, he immediately succumbs to the effects of arsenic poisoning. The only wny to obviate
this is gradually to acclimatize the system by reducing the dose from day to
day. As another evidence of the cumulative properties of arsenic it is interesting to note that when the graveyards in
pppcr Styria nre opened tho bodies of the
arsenic eaters can he distinguished' by
their almost perfect state of preservation,
due to the gradually accumulated arsenic.

selling at the lowest price which it has
reached in many years, Tiuding closed
Saturday in New York with silver sel
ing el $6)4 cents. That was a decline oi
a quarter of a cent during the week, and
it was a decline of 6.3 cents, or practically 10 per cent in the price of the metal
since the first of the year.
Tbe decline in London has been practically synchronous with the fall in New
York. The decline iu price in tbe Brit
ish market has also been just 10 per cent
since the first of tbe year. The price
has been lowered from 28.97 pence per
standard ounce, which was the average
price in January, to 26 pence flat, which
was the closing price on Saturday, The
evident disproportion between tbe prices
of tbe two countries is due to the fact
tbat in London the price is for "standard" silver at .925 fine, while the New
York price is for "fine" silver.
Tbe average price for silver in New
York was 59 58 cents in 1899 and 61.33
cents in 1900. Some months ago, on tbe
formation of the American Smelting &
Refining company, better known as the
smelting trust, S. Guggenheim, one of
the leaders of the trust, gave out ao interview in which he spoke about the
prospects that the trust would raise the
price of silver, just as it has raised the
price of lead. Mr. Guggenheim spoke
hopefully about tbe outlook and said his
company was considering the matter.
The main difficulty, he intimated, was
to do nway with the' rapacious brokers
in London, who insisted on making the
world's price to suit themselves. He
suggested, however, that the smelting
trust might he uble to overcome that
trouble. Since tbe smeltiug trust got
control of the American field, however,
the price of silver had steadily fallen.
"There ore so many causes which go
to make up the government price uf silver that it is difficult to arrive at any
adequate explanation outside of that of
supply and demand," said John A.
Finch of the Standard and the St. Eugene mines yesterday. "On the whole
it may be said that the supply and demand are the prime factors in fixing the
market price of silver or any other article of commerce.
"While there has been an increased
consumption of silver in the arts and
sciences, the supply appears to have
steadily exceeded the demand. A large
portion of the increase in the production
of silver may be attributed to the increased development of the bimetallic
mines. While tbe decline in the price
of silver bullion must necessarily decrease the revenue of silver mines and
even those having biproducts, I cannot
see how it will materially affect the mining situation in this section which Is
composed very lnrgrly of bimetallic
