Observations by F. E. Simpson
Cranbrook Herald.
We were told laat week that a certain
lady stated th*! The Herald was not fit
to be placed in a decent family because
i-ve republished the old joke about, the
minister going to resign to become chaplain of a penitentiary. Tbat joke has
been considered since the day of Pbar-
and aa one of the best religious jokes
published, and has appeared in nearly
11 religious publications on the Nortb
American continent. We are giving
these facts, not by way of an apology,
but simply to show the trials and tribu*.
latious of the average editor. Year.-.
ago, when we were youug iu the newspaper business, such criticism bothered
us greatly, for in those days we were
foolish enough to try and please every
body. We have been cured. Now we
have our way of doing things.   Those
ho like it and appreciate our eflbrtu
will take the paper and patronize us.
Those who dou't will criticize us. So
let the good work gu ou. We are growing fleshier every month, and there are
still three meats a dny served at the Old
Man's table. The I,oid bates a coward
or a hypocrite, so we will bjke along at
our old gait.

R. K. Beattie returued last Monda)
from a trip to Winnipeg, lie stopped

while gone, and iu this way saw and
heard a good deal about Manitoba
"Winnipeg is getting to be a great city,"
said Mr. Beattie "Jt is wonderful how
it has improved witb its new business
blocks, aud it is growing more metropolitan every year. During the exposition
week thousands upon thousands uf bus
mess men nnd farmers fiom all ovt-i
western Canada and northern Minnesota
and North Dakota ducked in there,
packing the trains each day. While
there I saw several good ball games and
lhe Winnipeg Maroons have won the
peunant in tbe Northern league, wbich
includes several clubs from the States.
It Is a great year for Manitoba, aud tbe
real estate business Is flourishing. Take
it Portage la Prairie, my father, wbo Is
engaged in tbat line, has put through at
least one reality deal every day for the
past few months, and they range from
|iooo to $15,000 or $20,000 each. And
that is the way tbe real estate business
is all over western Manitoba. The demand for farm lauds is increasing and
the immigration from the United States
is growing larger. Business iu all Hues
has beeu good down there, and tbe people generally are feeling good."

G. W. Hull, general manager of the
Sullivan Smelter and Mining company,
returned from Spokane last Friday, and
weut tbat evening to Marysville. He
bad little or nothing to say as to what
ibe company intended to do, except
tbat no meeting bad been held yet, but
tbat one would be held next Thursday
when, in alt probability everything
would be settled. Superintendent Eiemndorf left for Spokane Sunday morning, and on Tuesday Mr. Hull returned
to that city to attend the meeting.
It is generally known tbat considerable of the work don* under the supervision of Mr. Austin is not satisfactory,
and tbat a large amount of money will
bave to be raised to make the necessary
changes, Mr. Hull staled at tbe time
Senator Turner was here that there was
no question about the work proceeding,
and Senator Turner stated to The Herald tbat it was simply a question as to
the best method to adopt for the changes
tbat were to be made.
The company has invested over $100,-
000 up to date ou their smelter. Tbe
machinery is all here or on the way, and
in consequence tbere cau be uo reason
why the work should uot proceed
Another reason for this belief is the fact
tbat the smelter will have tbe Sullivan
mine to' draw upou fqr ore. and any
amount of it, which can be treated un<
der existing prices at a profit,
Tbeie has beeu trouble, and unfortunate conditions have arisen, but yet there
s no reason for any p'^sou to question
ihe fact that the Sullivan smelter will be
pushed ahead to completion tbis season
A Bright Future.
H. W. Ross, a mining man of 20 years
experience in British Columbia and the
Pacific coast states, was in town Monday. Mr, *;Ross is representing a syn-
dicate that is looking over South Bast
Kootenay with tbe idea of purchasing
some desirable properties. Speaking of
tbe district he said, "This part of South
mast Kootenay looks very good indeed
from a mining standpoint. The geological formation is most favorable and 1
am of tbe opinion that tbere Is a great
future ahead for this section. We do
not expect to do anything in the way of
work at present, but wbat I secure will
be with tbe idea of its value in the near
future. I have been looking at some
gold properties and also at several copper propositions. I believe tbe time is
coming when this district will be rich in
mining development, with more railroads, smelters, refineries, and all that
goes to make up a great mining community, I bave been surprised to see
so much poor work as 1 have found in
this section. Why a man should spend
big sums digging into tbe ground on tbe
showing of only barren quartz, I cannot
comprehend. Digging won't create values in mining. II is true tbat depth
may, and generally does, develope richer
ore, but there must first be indications
of values ou the surface. Mining should
be treated in a businesslike way. It ia
not such a gamble as many believe, but
a study and a science. I believe that
depth ia going to be necessary to get at
the real values of your copper properties,
and I am of tbe opinion tbat this district will prove to be rich in copper.
But business methods must be used to
insure success iu South Kast Kooteuay,
as well as in any otber mining country."
contains only about 12 per cent of copper
I have also made numerous laboratory
tests with the oil process. For ores
which contain finely disseminated metallic minerals I think oil Is greatly superior to water as a concentrating me-
dlum, for lt comes at once Into contact
with, licks np and saves a large proportion of the floating particles which pulverization produces ln such minerals
aud which are unavoidably lost when
water is used. To save by water tbe
mineral treated must sink, but a very
large proportion of some minerals such
as chaloopyrlte and tetrabydlte, will
not sink as it Is well known to all engi
neers who have given any attention to
metallurgy. I recently made a number
of concentrating tests wltb water of a
yellow copper ore containing about 2 fj
per cent of copper. The average loss
was 35 tf per cent copper mainly rising
Irom floating ore, the surface of ibe
water being covered wltb a scum of me-
tallc mineral in ore and the more finely
lt la disseminated the greater Is tbe
loss ln water concentration. Tbe use
of oil prevents that loss almost entirely.
I feel very sure that the process has a
great future for beside enabling many
ores to be profitably treated In water
lt will alwaya be useful as a tailings
in mills handling ore ln which a large
proportion of the metallic minerals Is
so scattered through tbe gangue that It
can be saved by handsorting and jigs.
In British Columbia and other parts
of Canada I know of a large number of
deposits which cannot be worked If
water concentration were use but which
with the Elmore process would become
very valuable properties. Mines that
have been worked at a profit when
smelling their produce could greatly Increaae that profit by employing the
Elmore process prior to smelling. Much
ore that baa hitherto been amalgamated
and cyanlded will I am sure be more
economically dealt wltb In tbe future
by oil concentration.

It Is so applicable to the Kootenay ores

being particularly Interesting to British Columbians:
Dear Sir,—In reply to your enquiry

opinion as to the Elmore oil concentrating process. 1 have examined, whilst

Superintendent Ounkle Killed In a Serious Cavein.
The Three Buried Beneath Thousands of Tons of Loose
Rossland, B. C, July 27— I-nuia A
Dunlile, superintendent of the Le Roi
mine, was instantly killed this morning
by a cave in on the 600 foot level of the
mine. Two timbermen, William L.
McDonald aud Daniel Gunn, were buried in the same mass of rock, but wet
extricated alive and practically unhurt.
Their escape was miraculous.
The incidents attending tbe fatality
are of the most sensational nature, and
the terrible event has caused a gloom
throughout the city that is almost unprecedented. At the Le Roi a connection was beir.g made between the 700
and Hie 600 foot levels, and the men
were renioviug the sill floor of the 700
level. Tbe work bad been under way
for several days, but the results were unsatisfactory. Tbe stopes on the 600 foot
level were filled with thousands of tons
of loose waste rock, lelt after the ore
hnd been extracted, and this was bearing
down upou the timbering of the floors
beneath iu an ominous manner, causing
the limbers to slew and shift.
Trying to Save tbe Ore.
Iustruc ions were issued to bulkhead
at close intervals, but even tbia did not
appear to have the desired effect. It
was essential, in order to save the ore
yet uustoped ou the 700 foot level, that
Ihe sill floor should be maintained intact, and Superintendent Dunkle bad
been und- rground for many hours, personally looking after the placing in
position tit timbers. At an early hour
this morcuig he was on the sill floor of
lhe 700 foot level witb three men, while
1 gang of 15 men were doing similar
work on'.he twelfth floor, about 20 feet
below. Despite the timbering, it became evident tbat tbe floor would sot
bold, ami ns a last resort an effort was
made to blast an opening that would
permit the waste to escape through the
waste shoot iuto lower levels, thus relieving the weight above and strengthening the supports beneath. The shoot
became choked, and a shot was placed
to dislodge the boulders aud timber
forming tbe obstruction. The shot
failed to explode, and Mr. Dunkle went
back witb his two men to relight the
fuse, statiug that if it failed to relieve
the situation he would abandon tbe effort to save the level.
While the trio were within the danger
zone the floor gave way, and a cataclysm
of rock, timbers aod debri 1 poured in
upon them with a roar and a crash tbat
resounded through the miles of mine
workings. Tbe mass was no leaa than
160 feet long, and contained thousands
of tons of material, the aggregation of
years of work in the upper levels.
The  meu   were  at the center of the
slide, and Mr. Dunkle was caught in tbe
avalanche oud crushed to death.   Mc
Donald   aud Gunn escaped practically
Dunkle's Body Recovered.
Rossland, July 28.—Tbe body of Superintendent Louis Dunkle, the victim of
the cavein at the LeRoi mine, which occurred early Sunday morning, was recovered after several hours' bard work
on tbe part of the rescuers. William L,
McDonald and Daniel Gunn, the two
timbeimen who were with Dunkle when
he was caught in the avalanche of rock,
but who were got out alive, are now in
tlte hospital and  are not seriously hurt
Manager MacKen/.ie and Shift Boss
Joe Thorne led the party of rescuers
who got Ibe liuihermen out. After they
were reached, it required three hours'
work cutting timbers to effect their release .
The mine was closed on Suuday in
consequence of 'the accident, antl it is
not likely that work will be resumed un*
til after the funeral of Superintendent
Dunkle, which takes place tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock.

No further trouble is expected in the
mine. At the point where the accident
occurred the ground has been badly
caved for some time, and in the last report of the minister of mines it was
stated that the ground was in such a
bad condition that it was doubtful II Ibe
ore reserves could be mined. This re-

The   Crow's   Nest   Cosl Company deities.
Dowa to Small Business.
If the following from the Fernie Free
Press Is a fact as there 1« every reason
to believe lt Is, the Crow's Nest Coal
Company with all lis millions Is resorting to petty tactics to bulldoze tbe
The story of of the persecution of Joe
Gall at Morrlssey by tbe Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Co. Is an Interesting one. Joe
la a slav with considerable ambition and
push. He went to Morrlssey about a
month ago to work for the coal company
taking his family with him. They moved into one of the company's bouses and
all seemed satisfactory. Two days later
Joe was laid off and ordered to vacate
the house. This be refused to do untlll
he could make future asrangement for
his family. The miners at Morrlssey
sympathizing with their fellow worker
urged him to open a store on the government side of the creek, promising to
patronize him. Joe saw In this tbe
chance to make an honest dollar and
ordered a stock of goods to start business with. He Invested SIT.', In a bridge
across Morrlssey creek to connect wltb
the road to tbe junction so that he could
ship in goods and also afford facilities
for customers from the town to reach
his place of business. Al progressed
favorably until July 1st, when his opposition on the Morrissey side of tbe
creek decided to win by removing his
bridge and Contractor Wardrobe was
detailed to do tbe work. Tbe bridge
was accordingly loosened from the company's side of the creek and wrecked bv
the turbulent stream. Poor .foe was at
a loaa what to do, but resolved not to be
beaten, he felled a lot of trees and made
a temporary substitute for the structure
which had been destroyed. It was no*/
tbe company's turn to exact summary
vengeance. A small building owned by
Joe on the Morrissey side waa razed
and to add Insult to Injury the lumber
was used In the construction of a fence
to shut off all stray customers wandering over to Joe's little stock to spend
a nlckle. The work of building the
fence was well under way and it had
been completed np to the bridge when
Joe seeing his last chance of communication with the town being cut oil
brought ont his rifle and threatened to
shoot them If they did not desist. Joe
succeeded in instilling a fear of death
In them and they called iu the assistance of constable Tranter and poor Joe
waa brought up to Fernie on Saturday
and pnt In durance vile on charge of
common assault. The case was adjourned over till Thursday evening tbis week
when W. H. Herchmer appeared for tbo
prosecution and and.W. It. Roaa took
charge of the defence. It was shown
quite clearly that Joe bad pointed the
rifle at the men and threatened to
ahoot them, and Justice of Peace Trltes,
could do nothing but find blm guilty,but
in view of the exasperating circumstances which led up to the action of
the poor Slav he only fined him $9 and
costs-Jo' ln all.
One step more bas been taken In the
above case. Joe has entered a suit for
damages against Contractor Wardrobe
for destroying his bridge and tbe case
comes up next Monday.
Jeffries Still Champion.

It, but in tbe eighth, with a terrific
short punch in tbe ribs, and one on tbe
jaw, Jeffries knocked Filzsimmons out.
Tbe cry of fake has been raised, and a
great controversy is the result. Filzsimmons declares the fight was on the
square, and that the best man wou,
while Jeffries maintains that it was the
hardest fight he was ever in. They
divided about $30,000 belweeu them on
a basis of 60 and 40 per cent, so they
have good reason to denounce suy
charge of tbe fight being a fake.

"Xo, nol Oh, nol" the maiden
uttered in a frightened whisper.
"Then listen further," continued
the nobleman in a low, earnest tone

blue eyes. "As your charms of both

"Spare thee, girl — spare thee
from becoming the wife of one of

"My guardian," spoke the fair
girl, now looking her companion
steadily in the face, "you only do
this lo try me. When you know that
such a union would make me miserable forever, when you know it would
cast out all the joys of life and extinguish the last hope of peace from

Slowly the stern fact dawned upon Rosalind's mind. There hnd been
a lingering hope that ho might bo

him or if she would willingly become
liis wife. Awhile she remained with
her head bowed and her bosom
heaving with the wild emotion thuB

up and spoke.
"Sir," sho said faintly, but with
marked decision, "you cannot make
me your wife."
"Ahi   And why not?"
"Because 1 will never consent."
"Ah!   Say you so?"
"1 do, and 1 mean it."
"Ha, ha, ha I Vou know little of

"No, no! Before heaven I protest
against such unholy union. You
cannot have my heart, and such a
union would be but foul mockery."
"Oho! Now you come to the
point. I can't have your heart, eh?
Perhaps your heart is given to tbe
Rosalind's eyes flashed in an instant. The words of the duke were
spoken snecringly and contemptuously, and ihey jarred upon the
young girl's soul.
"Aye," she quickly tillered, and
boldly, loo, "1 do love Ruric Nevel,
nnd he is worthy of my love."
"Now, my prelty ward," resumed
Olga in a tone of peculiar irony,
"you have spoken as 1 hoped you
wonld speak—plainly nnd to the

can never be your husband. He
stands charged with a horrid crime,
and the emperor only waits to sec

gunmaker is forbidden on pain of

"What crime is Ruric accused

"Of murder."
"In wounding the count?"

"Hold. Rosalind. I want no argument on this question. You have

"As God lives I do!"
"Then mark mo" — the stout,
dark nobleman gazed fixedly into
the maiden's face as ho spoke, and
in his look and lone there was a
fiendish expression tbat could not
be mistaken—"I shall do all in my

Willi one deep, soul dying moan
the poor girl sank down, shivering
and pale. The duke caught her as
she fcrll, and, having laid her senseless form back upon tho couch, he
strode from the apartment.
VK.li.3 Till-:  llBAUT.
It was early evening cre Zenobie
entered the apartment of her young
mistress. As she opened the door
she found all dark within. She
moved into the room, and, shading
her candle with her band,'she gazed about. Tho wind sti'l howled
fearfully without, and the snow
came driving ngainst the windows.
When the girl had reached the extremity of tho place, she called her
mistress' name, and she was answered by a low groan from the couch in
the corner. Thither she hastened,
and there sho found her mistress.
"Rosalind — my mistressl" she
cried, kneeling down.
"Who is it?" the maiden asked,
starling up and ga/itg frantically
"It is I, Zenobie. Say, ray dear,
good mistress, what is it? What is
the matter?  What bas happened?"
With a quick movement Rosalind
put her attendant away and sat up,
and, having gazed about her for
some moments, she murmured:
"Where am I?   Who is here?"
"It is I. You are in your own
ch'.mber. Come, you are cold here."
Without resistance the maiden
sulfered herself to be led to the
place whero the heated air came up
from the furnace below, and there
she sat down.
"What is it?" again asked Zenobie eagerly. "What has happened ?"
Rosalind bowed ber head upon
her hands, and after some moments
of thought she looked up. She was
very  pale, and a  fearful tremor
6hook ber frame.
"Zenobie," she uttered in a low,
strange whisper, "ask me no more
now. 1 um not well. Oh, ask me
no more now."
"My mistress," returned the
faithful girl, placing one arm about
Rosalind's neck, "you know what
you may tell me and wbat'you may
not. Bin whom will you trust if
you trust not me? Ob, give me
your love, and if 1 cau serve you let
me d» so."
"I would trust you with life itself," the maiden returned, "and
some lime you shall know all that
has happened here, but not now—
not now. Oh, I cannot speak it
now I"
"Say no more, my mistress; only
lei me serve you. You will havo

"You may bring me some wine,
And thereupon the young girl
hastened away.
In the meantime the duke was in
his private room below. He was
pacing to nnd fro ncross the floor,
with his hands behind him, and his
brow was dark and lowering. Ever
and anon he would stop near the
door and listen and then proceed.
Al length there came a rap upon the
door, and the duke said, "Enter."
It was a priest who entered the
apartment—a small, deformed man,
somewhere about 50 years of age.
His face was very dark, bis features
sharp and angular, his eyes dark
nnd sunken deep into liis head, his
brow heavy above the eyes, where
the shaggy brows hung over, but
sloping back from thence, lenving
the points where phrenologists locate benevolence and veneration deficient nnd flat. Upon bis shoulders
he wore a huge, ungainly hump, and,
all in all, he was just such a man ns
n timid person would shun. His
name was Savotano. The duke had
been the means of getting him into
tho church, and in consideration
thereof he had bound himself, to do
the duke's evil work. But this is
not all.
Some years before there had been
a murder in Moscow, and Savotano
did the bloody deed. It was a work
of pure vengeance. Olga bad him
apprehended, but he was not
brought to justice. The duke found
him to bo a shrewd, unscrupulous
wretch, willing to serve those who
would pay him well and ready to let
himself then to any one who could
save his life. Olga was a man of
plots and schemes. He fancied that
6iieh a man as Savotano might be
of use to him, so he proposed to
save him if he would serve his benefactor. The villain was glad enough
to accept the proposition, and the
bargain was made. Could Savotano
enter the church and assume the
sacred garb he might in many cases
work to better advantage. The
wretch readily agreed to this, too,
and through Olga's powerful influence bo gained a place in the church.
He knew that the duke held his very
life, and he failed not to serve him.
His clerical robes shielded him from
much suspicion, and, moreover, the
place gave him additional advantages to work at his diabolical trade.
His salary from the government was
sullicient for his support, while an
occasional sum from his master enabled him to enjoy many of those
luxuries which were denied to most
of his brethren. Olga feared not to
trust this man, for the fellow had
nothing to gain by betrayal, but everything to lose.
And such was the man who now
entered (he duke's private room.
He entered with a bold air, for,
though he was somewhat in the
duke's power, yet there was a peculiar satisfaction in knowing that
when he fell the noble lord must
fall with him, part way at least.
Brethren in crime cannot count
much upon respect.
"I have come, my lord," the priest
said as be shook the Enow from his
robe and then took a sent by the
furnace pipe.
"And how is the count?" asked
"He is recovering, I nm sure."
"Does Kopani say so ?"
"Yes. He says he will have him
out within a month."
"By heavens, Savotano, this must
not bo."
"But tell mo, my lord, what is the
particular need of the count's departing?"
The duke gazed his visitor a few
moments in the face and then said:
"Why, since the affair interests
you, I'll tell you. Thus far I have
paid you promptly all your dues,
but I cannot do so much longer unless wo can mako some of our points
work. My property is on the do-
crease fait. 1 hnve not enough left
to live on. Within tho past threo
years I have made some bad ventures. I put it into— But never
mind; sufltce it for mo to say that
I am at the end of my fortune."
The duke was about to say that
he had placed large sums in the
hands of the Minister Gallitzin for
the purpose of carrying out the con
spiracy by which the Princess Sophia was to have been placed upon
the throne, witb Gallitzin for her
prime minister und himself also high
in power. IIo chose not to tell of
this. And no wonder, for heads had
ere then been taken to pay for such
"And now if this count survives I
thus have one source cut off. My
half of Drotzen is used up and mortgaged to him, but if he dies tho
whole comes to mc. His father and
myself married sisters, and they
owned Drotzen, and on his side the
count is the ouly heir. So in the
event of his death the whole comes
to me.   You understand this now."
"Perfectly," returned the priest.
"And 'tis a pity your first effort did
not succeed."
"So it is," said the duke uneasily.
"When I sent him with that message to the gunmaker, I felt sure
he would be slain, and then 1 hoped
that the other couid be disposed of
for having 6lain him. But the emperor has turned all my plans upside down, for the present at least.
Savotano, you must have a hand in
Damonoff's medicine!"
"That is easily done, my lord,"
replied the priest quietly.
"You have free access there?"
"And can you not watch with him
some night?"
"I think I can."
"Then do so. When he ia dead,
800 ducats are yours."
"Then he dies."
"Good! And now there is one
more. This gunmaker must be got
out of the way."
"AhI" uttered Savotano, looking
up incredulously. "Do you mean
"Most assuredly I do."
"But why him?"
"Do you fear to undertake tho
work ?"
"Not at all, my lord. I only wished to know why he wns wanted
"The reason in simple. I must
marry with Rosalind Valdai. Her
property is worth the whole of Drotzen twice fold—over two million of
"So much?" uttered the priest,
opening his eyes with greedy wonder.
"Yes; it is one of the finest estates in Moscow, and it pays her now
a yearly income of • hundred thousand ducats. She does not know it.
Ha, ha, ha I"
"Ha, ha, ha!" laughed the priest
in concert.   "She doesn't, eh?"
"No; she knows nothing about it.
Bnt I must secure this, and in order
to do it I must marry her, and—
if I would be sure of that this accursed gunmaker must be out of the
"But what is he to her?"
"She loves him."
"And is not your authority"—
"Hold, Savotano. I'll explain to
you in a few words. I'm afraid the
emperor has taken a fancy to this
youngster, and if he has he may be
appealed to in this caso. The girl
will take marriage hard. I shall
have to hire you to perform the
"Which I should be pleased to
do," returned the priest, with a
coarse smile.
"You shall havo the opportunity.
But first we must havo the young
Nevel taken care'of."
"I think I can manage that, my
"And how will you do it ?"
"I suppose you don't want him
put where he can get off and come
back here."
"No. Finish him while you are
about it."
'1 will."
"But, mind, it must bo done so
that in no possible way suspicion
can fall upon me. You must contrive some way so that suspicion
shall be led at once to some apparent point and there baffled."
"Leave me alone for that, my
lord.   I can call help if I want it."
"Are there not places in the city
where a body can he hidden—where
it may be so disposed of and never be found ?" asked the duke as the.
thought came to his mind.
"Never mind," returned the other, with a confident nod of the head.
"If I meddle with the matter, it
shall bo well done."
"Very well. I'll trust it with
For a *rew moments after this
there was a dead silence, during
which only the moaning of the wind
could be beard. But at length tho
duke started up, and, with sudden
energy, he said:
"Ah, Savotano, there is one thing
I came nigh forgetting. You have
heard of this strange monk—Vladimir his name is."
"Aye, and I have seen him too.
You mean that huge lump of human
"Yes. And now tell me who and
what he is. He was at the duel, and
I know ho hnB been here to my
house.   Who is ho?"
"You've secured me there, my
lord, for I can tell you no more
about him than I can about the man
in the moon. In short, no one
seems to know him, save that be is
a monk of some Roman order and
named Vladimir. He has been hero
only a few months, as near as I can
find out, and yet I think I know
what his business is, or, at least,
why he's here."
"Ah, you suspect ?"
"Yes, and if my suspicions be
correct we could have him taken
care of at any moment."
"Why, I think he is a spy of the
pope, sent here from Rome to learn
something of our emperor's plans."
"But he has not visited tlio imperial palace."

Arm < nibi meted.
Much has been written in regard to
silos and silo building, and numerous
plans have been publishtd, but in
actual experience none of thein has
proved entirely satisfactory. Some
are too expensive for ordinary {armors, others are cheap, but last
only a few years. Tho round stave
silo is one of the cheapest sorts,
and if it were not liable to collapse
on account of shrinkage of the
staves, and the expansion of the
iron hoops, it would be very satisfactory.
There is now a prospect of these
disadvantages being overcome. A
number of farmers in the United
States have adopted the plan of using woodim hoops, which cannot
shrink or lengthen endwise. The inside sheeting is of one-inch Georgia
pine, which seems to be the best kind
uf lumber for silos, oh account of its
nou-shrinknble character. It is so
full of pitch lhat moisture has practically no effect upon it. This lumber has been recently laid down at
Ottawa for $27 per thousand, nnd
at that price should be one of the
most economical our farmers could

limn r>00 feet of lumber, and 20
pounds of nails, for lhe hoops which
are easily and quickly made and
s'nould not cost more than $1.2S
each, or $10 For the lot. This is a
good deal less than tlio cost of the
usual iron hoops and lugs. A thrce-
cornercd frame is erected at the exact outside circumference of the silo,
and the hoops placed in position und

Tile drainage is moro important
than most people bcliovo and should

■Most of the up-to-date farmers have
■given their farms good under drainage. By tiling, a poor field is readily changed into a fertile one. A
'vheat field, for instance, where wa-
'.cr stands for a short time, cannot
be very productive, as no plant can
do well with its roots under water.
A wet place in the fields is not only
a distinct loss but is a great annoyance as well. Such a spot is difficult
to plow, and a binder will not run
over it during a wet harvest.
It has been noticed that a great
deal of tile is being put in this
spring by farmers that have previously done no work of this kind. A.
farmer who continues to raise crops
without good drainage is sure to be
unsuccessful. lie must be either
shiftless or lazy. The cost is not beyond the means of most farmers and

factory in the neighborhood within

The desirability of setting two or
three hens on the same day and examining the eggs at the end of a
week, to see which of them are fertile and which sterile is urged hy W.
Ii. TLgetmetier, an eminent English
poultry authority. Of numerous instruments advertised under the names
of ovascopes and egg testers he finds
none superior and few equal to one
that can be made without the slightest, cost us follows !
eggs should bo removed quietly from
under the hen. She need not be lifted off the nest, but tho hand can be
passed under her and the eggs taken
away one by one. These should be
conveyed in a basket, into a room
limited  only  by  oue lamp.
The cardboard, with lhe dark side
toward the observer, should then be
heir! up against the lamp, as shown
in the cut, and tho,eggs one after another should he held against the hole
and the light looked at through
them. If Ihey appear unchanged and
look like a fresh egg, they are barren
and should be put ' on one side.
Those eggs with chickens in them,
the only ones which will hatch, aro
perfectly opaque at the end of a week
except at the larger end, whero the
nir space exists. This opacity is
caused by the blood vessels, which at
that period of the hatching line tho
shell, extending all over its interior
excepting at the air space.
Now, supposing that between thirty and forty eggs have been sot under the three hens and that owing to
any cause a half or third of them are
sterile, it will obviously be of nd-
^antage to place the fertile opaque
eggs under two of the hens and to
give a fresh sitting to tho third. In
this way the services of a broody
hen are utilized and good clutches of
chickens are much more'likely to be
insured.    ■
There is no use in allowing a hen
to sit upon a number of barren eggs.
If she breaks one near the period of
hatching, the contents cover the
others and foul the nest and interfere greatly with the due hatching of
the chickens.

coins of brass were struck as early

It is a good many years sinnce the
good wrought by Dr. Williams' Fink
Fills was lirst recorded in the columns of the Sun, but during that
period the sterling merit of the medicine has increased its reputation
and every day adds to the number
of thoso who have found health
through tho use of theso famous
pills. Many iu this town have freely
spoken of tho benefit they have derived from the use of Dr. Williams'
Fink Fills, and to theso another is
added in the person of Miss Victoria Widdis. To a reporter of the
Sun who had hoard of her cure, Miss
Widdis said : "Several years ago 1
became vory much run down; I felt
tired all the time, my blood was
watery and i was in what the physicians called an anaemic condition.
I was always weary and worn out,
not able to do anything and yot not
sick enough to be in bed. iiy heart
bothered me with its constant palpitation, brought about by my extreme weakness. My appetite failed
me and 1 was gradually growing
worse. 1 had heard and road of Dr.
Williams' Fink Fills and decided to
give them a trial. After using them
a short time a decided change was
noticable and it is no exaggeration
to sny that 1 felt like an entirely
different person. My appetite returned and with it good blood    and
| strong nerves. I can conscientiously
say for Dr. Williams' Fink Fills that
j they did me more good thau 1 can
tell. To all weak, nervous, easily
tired, run down women, 1 say by
nil means give Dr. Williams' Fink
Fills a trial and you will be delighted with the result."

Dodd's Kidney Fills havo done for
About ono year ago I began to
suffer with severe pains over the region of my kidneys, followed by a
very  lethargic feeling.
When I lay down, it was torture
to get up again.
This state continued for- sometime,
and all the while 1 was still getting
weaker and losing flesh rapidly.
My appetite was very much impaired, and at last I was obliged to
call In a physician.
He gave my sufferings a vory learned name, and doctored me for some
timo, but I got no better.
1 called in several other physicians, but it wus of no use; my sufferings got worse all the time until
1 began to despair of life.
A friend advised me to use Dodd's
Kidney Prills. I was very skeptical,
but was prevailed upon to commence
a treatment; the first box made me
feel some better.
1 passed a stone that had formed
in the bladder.
I continued the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills until I had used threo
boxes, and now believe that I havo
a radical and complete cure, as it is
six months since I used any of the
Pills, and have had no symptoms or
return of the malady.
I know that my cure is due to
Dodd's Kidney Fills, as I used no
other medicine after commencing
their use.

entered Parliament at the last general election as representative of tha

It would appear that ono of tho
most dangerous of peaceful occupations is the seemingly innocuous one
of attendant of a joiner's planing
machine At a hearing in a prosecution under the factory act at Halifax recently a factory Inspector told
the court that when he took office he
made it a point to try to discover
an attendant of such a machine who
had all his fingers. It was five years
before he came across such a man.
All the attendants of joiners'
planing machines whom he had seen
in the meantime had one or more
fingers missing, which they had lost
in the performance of their work—
and that notwithstanding the fact
that the men engaged in such work
are aware of the danger and aro

Of all traits, mental and moral,
there is nothing so becoming aa eel- *
flshness, Generosity induces worry
and wrinkles; consideration for
others means more or less wear and
tear on the nerves, and hence, on the
complexion; altruism In all Its forms
means u giving forth of oneself,
which, as every woman knows, Is
exhausting, and hence, unbecoming.
But an ingrained, wellgrained selfishness stands for peace ami contentment and all else that make* for
happiness aud becomingness, Com-
placency ever defies wrinkles. -She
who is not only self-satisfied, but
self centred is past mistress in tho
art of growing old gracefully, Tlmu
need have no terrors for her. It Is
only those wbo havu others to think 1
about and who exhaust their vitul
forces in behalf of others who should ,
di pad aging before their time. fcJel- i

Eternal Youth, but it goes a long
way towards making a woman look

the boauty-CUlturistfl to read t
'Think of Thyself"; there's no lotion, nor cold cream, nor massage,

The results of the Jmlgibg ln th«
horticulture department of the Pitn-
American Exposition, as filed with
the Ontario Department of Agriculture, show another notable triumph
for the Province of Ontario. While
tin State of New York secured more
awards than Ontario, our list is exceeded by that of no other State,
territory or country. New York received the gold medal for the largest
number of varieties of fruit, but Ontario was given the gold medal for
its "general (Jisplay of fruits of superior excellence." In other words,
New York won in quantity and Ontario in quality. No less than 20
gold medals, 32 silver medals, 38
bronze medals and 89 honorable mentions came to Ontario. Some of the
notable victories won were gold
medals on honey, on wines, on general excellence of all our fruit, two
on cold storage apples of 1900 taken
out on August 17, 1001, 07 per
cent, sound; also silver medal for installation of exhibit, a similar medal
being awarded to California. It is
notable that Florida, California, Delaware and other noted fruit-producing Statea stand away down the list
ln their total awards when compared
with Ontario.
The following are the gold medals
which come to Ontario:
Province of Ontario — Display of
wines; apples, 37 varieties 1900,

PraMr-riaf Local Hiatury.
Local historical societies throughout Ontario nre doing a valuable
work in saving and perpetuating
many interesting nnd pathetic stories of the early settlement of the
Province, says The Toronto Globe.
As primitive conditions pass away
the experience of the pioneer is soon
forgotten, aud those who take an
intelligent interest in the preservation of local history are strengthening the sentiment from which true
patriotism springs. At the last
meeting of the Ladies' Historical Society of St. Thomas a paper was
read by Mrs. (Dr.) Wilson, giving
an account of the founding of the
first church in the "Talbot Settlement/1 and of the lending events
associated with it in pioneer days.
The Talbot Settlement has grown
into the City of St. Thomas, and
the name of the original founder,
Hon. Thomas Talbot j has thus been
Tho Evening .Journal gives a brief
synopsis of the paper, which will be
preserved, with other contributions,
in the museum of the society, where
they will form the nucleus of a historical reference library- The founder of the settlement was born ln Mal-
ahide County, Ireland, in 1771, and
-lied in London, Ont., in 1803, having settled on the present site of St,
Thomas in 1803. The story of the
building of the first church, and of
the subsequent stages shown in its
construction, of the first service in
1822, the first communion celebrated, the first wedding and tho first
confirmation, is entertainingly told,
and the narrative Strengthens the
bond of human sympathy uniting tho
present with tho past.
A Story *>f Hod, ,foa Martin.
Tn a private letter received in Toronto a lady in Vancouver related an incident whieh shows thut
Hon- Joe Martin is still on the
boards. The story is that when
the Duke of York was in Vancouver
Mr. Martin entered the leading club
of that city and addressed a group
of the members who Wore discussing
tho royal visit.
"I suppose you will admit," said
Mr. Martin, "that the Duke of York
ii a well-bred Englishman?"
His auditors were probably too
■hocked by the question to admit or
deny anything.
"Well," he continued, "I have just
heard the Duke speak, and I notice
that he doesn't talk BJfiglish the way
you fellows talk English. I don't
understand it at all,"
Which suggests that in Vancouver
as in Toronto tho Duke's English
has given tho prevailing fashionable
accent a bud jolt.
