A recent despatch from the Nilson
Miner says: A bold burglary was
carried out last night ln a hardware
store on the main street. One of tbe
Brm of McLachlan Bros, had remained
late at tbe office to talk over some business with a friend. After tbey had concluded the friend walked out of tbe
office, which was at tbe back of the
store, and through tbe store, seeing, as
he did, a man whcui he supposed to be
ihe other McLachlan standing behind a
counter. Shortly after a member of
the firm came out and locked up the
store, when his attention was attracted
by something on the sidewalk, which
proved to be a valuable penknife,
which be remembered receiving as a
sample. He opened up tbe store again
and found that the lot of cutlery had
been taken. Tbe police were notified
and on a description given as to the

Joseph Mooney was looked for. H1 bad

E. C. Smith S*iys That the
Govermuut Will Live.
The   Work  of   the    Last    House   a
Deep   Disgrace   to   the
From Cianbrook Herald.
E. C. Smith, M. P. P., passed through*
Cranbrook Monday afternoon on bis way
home from Victoria. Mr, Smith was
looking well, and the winter's sojourn in
the coast city seems to have given bim*
an up-to-date, citified appearance.
While tbe train waited he met many of
bis old friends and received from all a
cordial welcome and a hearty handshake.
To The Herald man, Mr. Smith said:
'•Yes. tbe house has adjourned, and the
people should feel thankful. A proclamation should be issued granting an
holiday for two days, so that the people
might offer up their thanks tbat at last
this legislature bad adjourned. It waa
the worst on record, and wbat is more,
there were men there wbo voted as they
were dictated to, like a lot of jelly fish,
and got nothing for it. I am ashamed
of the outfit, and I know tbalt the people are doubly ashamed of their representatives tbis year. There were all
kinds of serious charges made of venality, and in most every Instance there
was no attempt at denial."
Will tbere be an election?"
'No, I don't think so. Tbe government has a mnjority and will hold it.
They may unseat Prior, but that will
make no difference in the hold of tht
government. I guess the people of British Columbia will have to stand the burden for two years; at least, until another
session. Dunsmuir has gone to tbe
Coronation. He succeeded in many of
his railway bills and has gone to the
Coronation   a   happy   man.    I  will  be
er to Cranbrook next week to attend
the circus. You see I have been mixed
up in the biggest circus in British Columbia for so long, lhat I am afraid that I
will get lonesome if I let any pass us
Mr. Smith, in his legislative career
this year, stood by the people upon all
measures presented, and fougbt for the
province as a whole. But, unfortunate
ly, along this line uf policy be was in »
hopeless minority.

Corner's  Jury   Sayi  That tke Mine!
Were Dangerous.
Fernie, June so.—Tbe coroner's In-
quest into tbe deaths of Steven Morgan,
Joseph Saigalla and William Robinson,
three of tbe victims of tbe Coal creek
mine disaster, came to a close today, tad
tbe jury after being out for seven hours
brought in the following verdict:
"Tbat the said Steven Morgan, Joseph
Sangalla aud William Robinson came to
their deaths ou Thursday, the 22nd day
of May, 1902, at or about tbe bour of
7:30 o'clock iu tbe afternoon, in wbat it
known as numbers two and three mines,
situated on Coal creek, near tbe town of
Fernie, in the province of British Columbia, tbe property of and worked by tbe
Crows Nest Pass Coal company, limited;
"That we, the said jury, find the initial cause of the explosion being si a
point in number two mine aforesaid, not
clearly defined, and tbat said initial
cause extended from tbe said undefined
point throughout the greater portion of
number two and three minea, coal du*t
being the conveying medium; and we
find in consequence that the inadequate
method of watering and removing of the
dust lelt tbe mine in such a condition to
be dangerous, and thereby providing t
medium whereby tbe initial cause waa
augumented and intensified; tbat we,
the said jury, recommend tbe government to take such steps to enforce.
"rst—Tbe Immediate installation of ihe
most approved system of watering for
allaying dust in coal mines.
"2nd—That a more thorough inspection be adopted at these mints, through'
ont the old winkings and rooms contiguous to the air channel, that are not be*
ing worked.
"3rd—Tbat the safest explosive and
most approved ssfety lamps be used."
Throughout the inquest the chief eff it
has been to locate the point iu the No 2
mine at which tbe explosion occiinu).
The miners and tbeir committee have
beeu almost unanimous in their opinion
that the explosion originated in thr Nn.
1 machine room, while against this the
officials of the company give it as tin Ir
opinion that the explosion first occurred
in Mi-Donald's level.
All the bodies have been recovered
witb the exception of three or possibly
four. These have been burled in tht
mine and may possibly never be recovered.

will speak plainly, my dear
motlicr," relumed the youth in 8
tremulous tone, for his parent's
kindness had moved him. "In my
sou] I sliould feel perfectly justified
in refusing lliis meeting, for no
principle of real honor is at stake.
But were I to buck out now from
this 1 should never meet another
generous look in Moscow. Every
one would point the linger of scorn
toward me, nml the word coward
would ring always in my cars. It
may be a false state of things—I
feei that it really is so—but how
can I help il ? It is the eur?e of all
groat military epochs. Buttle alone
makes heroes, and so all must measure [heir honor by the force of their
arms. The coun I carries even now
upon his brow lhe mark of my blow,
nnd all will say lie has a right to
demand satisfaction, though I know
tluil he provoked the quarrel on
purpose. I connol refuse him on the
ground of stilllnn, for he is above
tne in lhat.   I must meet him."
"Then," snid ihc mother in a low,
oa'm lone, bill with much elTort,
"vou shall not feel tlmt your mother
would illwiirl your design. If your
own good judgment says go, then go
]f ibi'V bring yiiur body lo me in the
fieri) grasp of di'iiih. I shall pray for
the soul thai has gone ami shall
hope lo meet you in Ihe home of the
redeemed. If you come back lo me
alive. 1 shall thank CnA that you are
Epnred. Hut. alas, lhe joy will be
clotided with lhe thought of blood
upon your hands and ibe knowledge
that my joy is another's grief!"
"No, no, my mother," cried Rurie
quickly and earnest!)'. "I will nol
have a fellow being's blood upon my
band if I Clin avoid it. Only lo save
my own life will I take his. lie has
done till ibis himself—all, all. The
quarrel was bis own, and lhe first
blow was his. Tbe challenge is bis,
and now is uot the responsibility bis
"II is, my son, so far as he alone
is concerned. If you havo a respon-
sibilily, it must be to your own soul.
Hut tell me, has not the emperor
made some new law touching this
practice of dueling?"
"Yes, but only tho challenger is
responsible. The party challenged is
held free from blame in the eyes of
the law."
"Then I shall interpose no more
objections," said the mother. She
tried to speak hopefully, but bIic
could not hide the fearful sadness of
Iier heart. "Could fervent prayer
avert Ihe blow it should not fall, but
) can only pray as one without power."
A long time after this was passed
in silence. Both tho mother and
eon seemed to havo something upon
their minds whicll they wished to
fav, bul dared not. But the former
at length overcame her reluctance.
"Ifuric, mv sou," she said, keep-
iris back the tears that struggled for
utterance in their silent speech, "is
there any little word you would
leave—any matter of moment"—
"No, no," the boy answered,
speaking calmly by cll'ort. "I am
yours, and all is yours. But I shall
not fall."
"Ah, be not too confident, my
son. Let no bucIi assurance lead you
to forget your God. I have heard of
this count, lt was he who slew ltut-
ger, and Momjako, too, he slew in
the duel. Ho is an expert swordsman and surely menus to kill you if
be can."
"I am aware of tbat, my mother.
But do you know that wo are all
prone to overlook our own powers
when pondering upon the feats of
■others? I may be pardoned for assuming you that tho only man who
has ever yet overcome the count at
tbe sword play was one of my own
scholars. While in Spain 1 practiced
with some of the best swordsmen in
tbe kingdom. But, listen, 1 will
send ono word. l'or yourself I can
tell you nothing which you do not
know. But yet you may see Rosalind. If you do, tell her— But you
know my soul. Vou can tell her as
you please.   But I shall not fall."
It was now late, and ere long Rurie kissed Ilia motlicr and then retired to his bed.
And lhe widow was left alone.
Willi her eyes sho followed the retreating form of her beloved son,
nnd when he was gone from ber
fight the bowed ber bead and sobbed aloud. When she reached her
humble couch, she knelt by tbe sido
thereof and poured forth her pent
up soul lo fjoil. When her head had
pressed tbe pillow, sbe tried to hope,
sbe tried lo fasten one hope in her
mind, but she looked only into the
night. Not one ray of light reached
her struggling soul. She opened her
eyes of promise in vain, for she
looked into a gloom so utter that
out of its depths loomed only the
blackness of despmir.
Sleep on, Ruric. But, oh, couldst
thou know how thy fond mother's
heart is racked tbere'd be no sleep
for thee I       	
On the following morniDg Rurie
was up betimes, aud at the break-

fast table not a word of the one all
absorbing theme was uttered. After
lhe meal was finished the gunmaker
went out to bis shop aud took down
from one of the ciosets a long leathern case in which were two swords,
both of the same make and finish,
only different in size. They were
Toledo blades and of most exquisite
workmanship and finish, liuric took
out the heaviest one, which wus a
Iwo edged weapon with a cross hilt
of heavily gilded metal. He placed
lhe point upon the door, and then,
wiih all his might, he bent tbe blade
l ill the pommel touched the point.
The lithe steel sprang back to its
place with a sharp clang, and the
texture was not started. Then he
struck the flat of the blade upon tbe
anvil with great force. The ring
was sharp and clear, aud the weapon
remained unharmed.
"By St. Michael, Paul, Moscow
docs not contain another blade like
lhat. Damascus never saw n bet-
Thus spoke the gunmaker to his
boy as he balanced tbo beautiful
weapon in his hand.
"I think you are right, my master," the boy returned, who had beheld the trial of the blade witb unbounded admiration. "But," he added, "could you not temper a blade
like tbnt?"
"Perhaps if I had the steel. But
I have not. The steel of these two
blades came from India and was
originally in one weapon, a ponderous two handed affair belonging to
a Bengal chieftain. The metal possesses all the hardness of the finest
razor, with the elasticity of the
most subtle spring. My old master
ul Toledo gave mo those as a memento. Were I to mention the sum
of money he was once offered for
ihe largest one you would hardly
credit it."
"How much?" asked Paul, with a
boy's curiosity.
"It was a sum equal to about 700
"And yet he gave it nway."
"Aye, for its price was but imaginary, while its worth to him was only commensurate with the good it
did him. If he told the truth, he
loved me, and these he gave me as a
parting gift as the best patterns I
could wish for when making such."
After this Ituric put up the small
sword, and tben he gave Paul a few
directions about the work, promising to be buck before night. The
faithful boy shook his head dubiously as he heard this promise, but he
said nothing, and shortly afterward
liuric went into lhe house. Just
then Alaric Orsa drove up to the
Hurie was all ready but putting
on his bonnet and pelisse. His
mother was in the kitchen. He
went to her with a smile upon his
face. He put his arms about her
and drew her to his bosom.
"God bless vou. mv motherl I
shall come back." lie said this ami
then kissed her.
"God keep—and"—
It was all she could say.
Rurie gazed a moment inlo her
face, then he kissed her again, and
again he said:
"God bless you, my motherl I
shall come back."
He dared not stop to speak more.
Gently sealing his fond mother upon a chair, he turned and hurried
from the place. In tbo hall he
threw on his pelisse and bonnet, and
then he opened the door and passed
"Have you u good weapon?" ask-
L'd Orsa as the horse started on.
"I have a fair one. I think it will
not deceive me," returned Rurie.
"I asked," continued Orsa, "because Damonoff prides himself upon
lhe weapon he wears. It is a German blade, and he thinks he can cut
in twain the blade of nny other
weapon in Moscow with it."
"I have a good weapon," Rurie
said quietly, "and one which has
stood moro tests than most swords
will bear." And after somo further
remarks he related the peculiar circumstances attending the making of
the sword and bis possession of it.
At length they struck upon the
river, and in half nn hour more they
reached the appointed spot. The day
was beautiful. The sun shone brightly upon the glistening snow, and the
air was still and calm. The sharp
frost of the atmosphere served only
In brace tho system up, and Rurie
I brew open his pelisse thnt ho
might breathe more freely. Ho had
been upon the ground but a few
minutes when the other party enme
in sight around the head of the
As soon as the count and his second arrived and the horses had been
secured tbe lieutenant proposed that
they should repair to tbe building
wbich was close nt hand. Tbis was
a large open boatbouse which was
unused and deserted in tho winter,
and it was proposed to go in there
because the reflection of the strong
sunlight from the bright snow was
calculated to blind and blur the eye.
"Hal What means that?" uttered
Orsa as he saw a sledge just turning
the bend of the river with an officer
in it.
"It is only a surgeon," replied
Damonoff. "I would not cut a
man's flesh without giving him a
fair chance to survive it."
"And then you may find him
serviceable to yourself, eh?" suggested tbe lieutenant.
"Of course. There is no telling
what mav happen."
In a moment more the new sledge
came up, and Utirio recognized its
inmate us an army surgeon whom he
had seen before, though he knew not
his name.
"Now for the old boatbouse,"
cried I'rzen.
"Aye," added Damonoff. "Let us
have ibis business done, for I wonld
he back to dinner. I dine with Olga
today, and a fair maiden awaits my
"Notice him not," whispered Orsa, who walked close by Hone's side.
"That is one of his chief points
when engaged in nn affair of this
kind, lie hopes to get you angry
nnd so unhinge your nerves."
"Never fear," returned tbe gunmaker. "Be sure ho only brings
new danger to himself, for 6ucb efforts will find thoir point in tbe
muscle of my arm."
The party balled when they
reached tbe interior of .the rough
structure, and the count threw off
bis pelisse and drew bis sword. Ruric followed his example.
"Sir count," the latter said as he
moved a step forward, "ere we commence ibis work I wish all present
to understand distinctly bow I
stand. You bave sought this quarrel from the first. Without the least
provocation from me you have insulted me most grossly, nnd this is
the climax. So, before God and
man, be the result upon your own
"Out, lying knave"-—
"Hold," cried the surgeon, laying
his hand heavily upon the count's
arm. "You have no right to speak
thus, for you lower yourself when
you do it. If you have come to fight,
do so honorably."
An angry reply waa upon Damo-
noff's lips, but be did not speak it.
He turned to his antagonist and
"Will you measure weapons, sir?
Mine may be a mite the longest. I
seek no advantage, and I have one
here of the same length and weight
ns my own if you wish it."
"1 am well satisfied as it is," replied Ruric.
"Then take your ground. Are you
"I nml"
The two swords were crossed in
an instant, with a clear, sharp clang.
There was some contrast between
the two combatants, but not much
apparently. The count wns a little
tho taller, and Ruric was somewhat
heavier. But to a close observer
there was a peculiar contrast in the
hearing of tho two men. That
breast swelling out so nobly and
those massive shoulders, made for
lhe seat ot physical power, were Kuril;'s aione to possess. Yet Conrad
Damonoff was accounted a strong
man. In the athletic sports of the
court club ho had few superiors and
not many equals. But Ruric Novel
had never shown his strength there.
Now, for the first time, that contemptuous look passed from the
count's face. As his eye caught his
antagonist's position, as he noticed tho calm, dignified, quiet ease
of every limb and as ho caught the
deep, mystic fire of those expressive
eyes he knew that he had no common amateur to deal with.
At length Conrad Damonoff started back, and a quick cry escaped his
lips. His antagonist's point had
touched his bosom. It had pressed
against his heart and had not been
driven home. Well he knew that his
life was his no longer, for the gunmaker had gained it and spared it.
"You fence well," he gasped,
struggling to regain his composure.
"You nre not a novice," returned
Ruric calmly, at tbe same time allowing his point to drop.
"Come on," the count uttered,
now gathering all his energies for
another effort.
And again tho weapons were
crossed. This time Damonoff was
moro guarded. Before he had been
impelled by his own assurance, but
now be was forced to regard his opponent's power. Ruric quickly
found that the other was more careful than at first, und ho carried his
own point accordingly. At tho
twelfth stroke the count made a
feint to the left, then at tho throat,
nnd then, with a quick, lightning-
like motion, he brought his point to
his antagonist's heart. But hia
meaning had been read from the
first by Ruric. Tho youth caught
the motion of tho eye, and he saw
that bis heart was tho place looked
to. His own movement was almost
instinctive, lie received his antagonist's sword midway upon his own
blade, then moved his arm quickly
forward nnd caught the point under
his cross guard; then, with all his
power, ho wrenched his nrm upward
and backward, and the count's
sword went flying across the building. It struck the opposite wall
with a dull clnng, nnd the next instant it was half buried in tbe snow.
"Fear not, sir," said Ruric aa the
count started back, with both hands
raised. "I never strike an unarmed
Damonoff's arms fell to his side,
and a deep blush of shame mantled
his face.
"By St. Paul," cried the surgeon,
"your life is forfeited, sir count,
and now you should be satisfied."
"No, no," the discomfited man exclaimed, starting up with rage and
mortification. "Thnt wna but a slip.
'Twm a false steu. a cowardly feint
I am not overcome.'*
"But, mail of mortality, even now
your life is Novel's. He may run
you through-now if bo chooses."
"But he has not," the count cried,
springing to where his 6word had
fallen and snatching it up.
"Sir count," here spoke Ruric
calmly, but with marked contempt,
"you should not blame me for what
I have done, for thrice have you
tried to break my sword."
"Then try it again I" Damonoff
returned. "Take my sword again if
you can."
"Perhaps not," our hero retorted.
"But be sure your sword shall be
used no more after this day."
"na! Brag not, but strike. Tf
you can"—
Tbe conclusion of the sentence
was drowned.by the clash of Bteel.
At the second stroke the count
made another furious thrust at bis
antagonist's heart. Ruric sprang
quickly aside, and with the whole
power of his good right arm he
struck Damonoff's blade close to tho
haft and broke it in twain.
"My other sword, my other
sword I" the count shouted, now
blinded by absolute madness. "Ob,
give me my other"—
"Hold!" cried both the surgeon
and Stephen Urzen in concert. "You
nre mad, Conrad."
"Mad? Oh, I shall be mad I
Where ia my sword?" tbe reckless
man yelled, casting the bludeless
pommel down.
"But will you not listen one"—
"Away, I say! Shall I give up because my sword is broken? By the
gods, tho weapon deceived me.
Where is the other?"
"Deceived thee, Conrad?" repeated tho surgeon sarcastically. "By
the Holy Ghost, had thy bond but
received a hundredth part of tbe
blow 'twould not be upon thy shoulders now I"
But the count wns beyond all reason. In his madness he saw not that
bis sword had been broken on purpose. He did not see thnt he had
been at bis antagonist's mercy. But
his friends saw it all.
"Hal Whom have we here?" cried
Alaric, whoso eye had caught a dark
form at the entrance of the old
It waa Vladimir, the monk.
"How now ? Whnt seek yo here?"
asked Urzen as the fnt, burly monk
wnddled toward tbo party.
"1 heard the clash of arms, mv
son, as 1 rode by, and 1 stopped to
see what it was. Surely where the
work of death is going on a child of
tbe holy church of God may come."
"Aye," cried the count. "Come in
and welcome, but meddle not. Now,
my sword, where is it ?"
Reluctantly Urzen brought forward the second sword, but ere ho
gave it up ho said:
"Beware, Conrad. You had better"—
"Peace, babbler!" tbe excited fool
hissed, snatching tho weapon and
then turning quickly upon the gunmaker.
Thus far Ruric had remained silent, but he felt it his duly to speak
"Sir count," he said in n tone so
stern nnd authoritative and with a
look so commanding tbat the'other
was beld in abeyance by it, "1 must
speak ono word. You have provoked a quarrel with me, and you have
challenged me. I have no fear of
death when duty calls for my life,
but I would not die thus, nor would
I slay a fellow being thus. Six separate times today since our swords
first crossed have I spared your
"Liar I"
—"and twice have I had you before me unarmed," Ruric continued
without noticing the interruption.
"I had hoped this would havoehown
you that I sought not harm to you
and, furthermore, that you wore no
match for me at this kind of work."
"Out, fool!" yelled Damonoff, now
fairly frothing with rage, "if you
dare not cross swords again, say so,
but do not crawl off like a coward 1"
"One word moro," uttered Ruric,
paling for an instant beneath the
unmerciful insult of the senseless
tongue that assailed him, and ho
stood proudly erect while ho spoke,
"before these mon hero assembled
and before God 1 swear that thus
far I have spared you, but my own
life may be tho forfeit if I trifle with
you more. So now beware. You
have sufficient warning."
Perhapa the count really overlooked tho facta of which Ruric had
spoken. In his ungovernable rage
be may have fancied that 'twas only
accident that had worked against
him. However, ho started forward
once moro and made a furious lunge
ut his antagonist.
"Now," ho gasped, "play your
best, for my sword'B my own."
But Rurie spoke not. Ho saw that
tho count was stronger than before
—for bis rngo Bccmcd to give him a
maniac'B power—and that he was
earnest only for life or death. Ho
struck quickly and furiously, and
his movements were strnnge and unprecedented. He threw up all rules
of exercise and cut and thrust only
in wild madness. Twice Ruric came
nigh being run through. He lost all
run of liis opponent's play and
quickly saw that he must put a stop
to tho conflict or run the risk of
leaving a childless mother in hia
home to seo that day's sun sink.

The subject of hand separators
formed the text of an interesting address delivered at a recent meeting of
the Canadian Dairymen's association
by Professor II. II. Denn, one of the
oliielals of the Ontario Agriculture college at Ouelph. After explaining the
principles upon wbicb tbe machine
works Professor Dean went on to deal
with the advantages of the separator
and In tills connection said: "Oue of the
chief benefits of a band separator in
the private dairy Is that It is a cleanser
of milk. If you take what Is supposed
to be clean milk and run it through a
separator, you will lie amazed nt wlmt
will come out of the milk. This Is an
Important factor In favor of the use of
separators, ns clean, pure cream means
better butter,
"A second advantage Is that It enables the private dairyman to get more
of this better class of cream and Hum
make inure and better butter. A third
gain to the farmer Is that It gives lilin
a better quality of sklmmilk."

of these Bteamed beans could be fed
without Injuriously affecting the product is perhaps a problem, but commencing in a moderate way one might in-
crease gradually until the dally allowance reached nearly or quite four
pounds. We lb Ink It would be n good
plan to mix some wheat bran with the
beans. We do not think It advisable to
get along with only silage for roughage. The cow seems to crave more or
less dry forage In connection with silage or even with best pasturage.

Alfalfa For Dnlrr Cows.
Alfalfa is a profitable crop for New
Jersey dairymen lo grow for soiling
crops, snys New England Homestead.
Five crops In a season hnve been eutnt

New Brunswick, where It Is preferred
to bran, as it can be grown nnd thus
eaves the money bran costs, while lt Is
10 per cent richer In protein.
It should not be forgotten in compounding n ration (lint the stomachs of different classes of animals vary In relative
size, says Hoard's Dairyman. The cow
has very capacious receptacles for food,
showing that she Is fitted to consume
relatively more coarse fodder than other animals, and hence In arranging her
feed regard should be hnd both to bulk
nnd the proper distribution of the nutrients throughout the entire mass. For
example, twenty pounds of tlipothy
hay or ten pounds of corn will furnish
practically cqulvnlent nmouuts of nutriment, but the cow will not thrive on
corn nlone becnuse of the defective digestion consequent upon failure properly to distend her stomachs nnd subdivide the concentrated food.
Those of us who belong to the generation that weut "through the war" remember thnt "roughage" was quite as
essential as grain for tbe continued
well being nnd endurance of the animals. The prescribed nrmy rntlon for
the horse contnlns practically an equal
amount of roughage nnd grain; for the
cow, under ordinary conditions, we
think it best to hnve about two-thirds
of the dry tnnttcr in roughage nnd one-
third In grnln. When feeding heavily
for rapid Increase of weight or extra
flow of milk, this proportion cannot be
maintained, but the roughage should
not be materially decreased.
An ATernire Radon.
After cows due to freshen soon have
bnd tbelr calves wo should consider
the following comblnntlon n very good,
average ration for the entire herd, including those which nre to freshen In
the spring. Of course aueb cows will
need less feed than those tbat hare
recently freshened, and one must apportion the feed nccordlng to tbe ability of each cow to respond: Twenty
pounds of bny. four pounds of bran
ami four pounds of buckwheat middlings. In the absence of buckwheat
middlings use the same nm.niiit of
gluten feed or, what would be still better, If the middlings cannot be obtained In quantities to last all winter give

two pounds of each per day Instead of
four nounds of either.

most of the stock offerings are poor,
they bring less money, the range being from $35 to $45.
HOUSES—There is a good steady
demand for horses for both Tarm and
general use, and dealers find no difficulty iu disposing of all they can secure. The market is being largely
supplied from Ontario.
Thousands throughout this country
suifer seriously from general debility—the result of impoverished olood
and shattered nerves. To all such
tlie story of Mrs. Harriet Fair,
widow of the late Hev. Richard
Farr, Fenwiek, Ont., a lady well
known throughout the Niagara dis-
tri-.r, will point the means of renewed health. Mis. Farr says: "For
a couple of years prior to 1899 1
was a great sufferer from a rundown
system. My digestion wns bad ; 1
had little or no appetite and was
in a very poor state; I suffered from
heart palpitation and a feeling of
continual exhaustion. Doctors' treatment tailed to benelit me and 1 gradually grew worse until 1 was dually
unable to do the least work. 1 then
began usinw Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and from the very first I noted an
improvement in my condition, The
severity of my trouble gradually lessened, and by the time I hart taken
eiejit boxes X wus again enjoying tlie
best, of health, despite my 00 years,
believe that Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills saved my life, and would
Strongly urge all sufferers to give
th'-'iir. a trial, believing they will be
great benefit."
When your blood is poor and
wu'.eiy, when your nerves are miring, when you suffer from head-
dies and dizziness, when you are
pale, languid and completely run

promptly restore your ncalth by re-
nowing and enriching the blood.
They nre a, prompt and certain cure

The North Star.
The latest reports from the .North Star
shows that work is progressing in a most
favorable manner. At the present time
tbere are about 75 men employed and
the mine is shipping 40 tons .of pre daily
to the smelter. As compared wiih the
tonnage in some of tbe Boundary country mines, tbis shipment looks small,
but then it must be taken into consideration that North Star values far exceed
those of the Boundary mines. Forty
tons of North Star ore. will probably
show as much profit as 100 tons of the
ore of tbat country. Therefore, tbe
North Star shipments show up well for
that property, and for the district. Jnst
at this time, wheu so many mines are
closed, it is a good thing for the district
io have 3 property like the Star in active
Struck Bed Rock.
Last Friday at the mining exchange at
Spokane, the bears went after Sullivan
and pounded it down to 5*4 bid, and 6
asked. This is the lowest point tbe
stock has ever reached and so far as
kuown, theie is no excuse for the remarkable slump SullWau at s'/2 would
surely be a bonanza investment.
The Marysville Smelter.
G VV. Hull, general manager of the
Sullivan Mining anil Smelting company,
has returned from the east, and was accompanied by Mr. Iilmendorf, a smelter
expert from Denver, Col. The latter
is now occupied with making a careful
examination of the situation and preparing plans for pushing forward the smelter buildings at Marysville to an early
completion. It is expected that within
90 days the smelter will be resdy to blow
in. This means a great deal to this district, since it will givecheaper treatment
and will make many properties that are
now practically valualess, paying propositions. It means, also, that the Sullivan mine will soon be operated witb a
full force of men, which will materially
add to the business of the district.
The St. Marys Valley,
Fred Hazen came down from the St,
Marys valley Monday, where be has
some valuable mineral claims. He
working on the Hardscrabble and bas a
better showing than be has had at any
time since he started operations. Mr.
Hazen looks upon the St. Marys country as one of the best in this district,
and says that the past two years has
demonstrated the fact tbat in every instance where work has been done the
property has improved. What the valley needs is transportation, and it is to
be hoped that either the C. P R. or Jim
I Hill will build a road from Marysville

Klerksdorp, Transvaal, May 14 —
We have been too bu.y since j lining
Kitchener's column to write, except
now and then, to our own borne, but at
present I am ln the detail camp here
waiting for a removal and having abont
iwo hours a day of my own, I decided
to use to-day's leisure ln giving our own
account and experiences ln a real
"scap" with the Boers. Lsavlng Rossland on Christmas we gathered up tbe
other quotes until we left Winnipeg
with 134 men to be known as C. Squadron, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th troops, second
Canadian Mounted Rifles. As acting
icrgeant major on this troop. I became
personally acquainted with them all, so
In arranging them Into troops our Rossland, Nelson and Cranbrooks recruits
were allowed to remain together, forming the 4th troop of C. Tney acquitted
themselves well at Halifax by leaving
all the troops of the regiment at the
ranges, 500, seven shoots each; 000 and
700 yards and seven at 000 ln one
minute. Hicks, Uautli and the Trail
soys proved splen lid shots, Our squadron was also 11 per cent ahead of the
others. At Halifax tho weather proved
a severe test, and about ten were unable to sail but j lined us here a week
Tbe trip on the boat was four rough
days after leaving Halifax, then smooth
water to Durban, where we arrived on
ihe 25 February. Entraining at Durban
on the hottest day of our experience,
-e camped at Newcastle several weeks,
drilling and lining our horses. The
horses came thiough very well, but the
.addles were failures, soou giving the
lorses sore bicks and rendeilng them
unlit for service. We were then
march :d by Ma juba Hill to Bolkrust and
Uien by train to Klerksdorp, the terminus of the railroad from Durban. This
1 istrict has been the scene of Delary's
opi-ratlons nurlng tbe war. aud he was
ihen ln a laager nbout forty miles wesi
of the town. Sunday night we were
attached to Col. Crookston with two
thousand mounted men in all. We made
fortj-elght miles ln eight hours to within three quarters of a mile of a rock
litge lined wiih thorn brush. The
iccuts twenty-four In number, of which
I was one, were sent on to locate De-
arey under Lieutenant Callahan. Find
ne only a few cattle on the ridge, we
fed the horses aud I was sent along the
ridge with three men for picket duty.
A few minutes later three Boen were
noticed starting toward us. We picked
up a Boer lad of fifteen in the brush,
and so tbey felt safe and wo fell back
to the troop. We got two of the three
as our first captives, tbe others following gave ns no trouble and wben daylight came, no live Boers were in sight
until S p. tn., when we captured our
first convoy. The Boers followed our
stragglers all day, disarming several
and stripping some. However, they
made up for it at Boscnbulb, to wbich I
will have to jump, as time is flying.
On March 30th, we left a base camp
that had been established forty miles
west of here, and on tbe following
morning our scouts located about 300
Boers about four miles ahead. Our two
guns and two pom-poms and abont 70
mounted men were rusbed on fourmlles
to where our fight occurred and opened
fire, scattering the bunch. Some 300
Baers hidden ln the brush on our right
had been overlooked, and these firing
from their saddles at 000 yards as they
galloped past killed two and wounded
four of the British mounted Infantry.
I was sent with dispatches to Col. Evans
after tbe regiment was all brought np
with the exception of the rear guard.
Our last wagon was ln tbe camp and
camp fires started, when we noticed the
Boers getting a gun ln position abont
2000 yards in our front and the open
ridge  ou   the skyline for half a mile
swarming  wltb   mounted Boers.    We
were at once formed into a rough line
with the wagons and guns  surrounding
the horses, which were on  rope lines,
It was a sight worth seeing to see tbe
Boers then come into action,  a single
horseman leading and others following
at a steady gallop, nose to croup, until
we were completely surrounded.    The
rltle firing soon commenced after that,
and   we learned from  experience tbe
meaning of a hailstorm of bullets for
two hours or more,  our fellows being
wounded or going under at the rate  ol
one a minute.    They seemed to have
the range perfectly, the ground being a
group of Boer farms all surveyed  witb
corn   fields  ready   for  cutting.     Our
fourth troop C lost Peters of Cranbrook
a bright young engineer and mechanic,
who was building all his castles on returning to   Canada;   Llezert,   of    the
same place, w.s shot  in   the chest so
close   to   his heart   that his hospital
doctor wondered at his escape.    As the
lad was led past me 1 asked  him If he
was battly hurt.   His leply was to pull
open bis shirt, showed the wound, and
said "G.ve   them  hell for me,  boys."
The third  wounded waa also a Cranbrook lad named Grafus, and he fought
in line an hour after being shot, six
feet on my right.   He bat gone to England for an operation to have the bullet extracted.    E squadron was acting
rear guaid, and when the Boers closed
in ou the rear Lieutenant  Bruce Carruthers, a Royal Military College lad,
21 men wiih him.    Tney had dismounted in a   corn  field  and fought   lt out
uutll tne horses were killed, au their
ammuul.lou gone, seven of the twenty-
one liukd and un wounded—aot a bad
showing fur cliy laus fnm Hamilton,
Quelpn, Loudon, Toronto and Windsor,
Outano.    'ihe Boers tried 10 oio.e ou
us iw.ee, but nuy were cut up too baa*
ly, auu uo amount ot ijonibocaing cud
induce ihciu iu atuct us that night.
Six men ur ihls (ear guard (not uf the
21) got lust and two da'.s later were
»u Hummed by SO Boers.   Tney got un a
utioil ai,d  f jugat five hours  uutll two
were killed uud all ammunition gone,
i'hey were snipped and had a 54  mile
barefoot tramp to Klerksdorp without
grub.     They were so exhausted  that
they were sent 10 the hospital for a
uacnih.     1'ue following day a coiumn
relieved us and we returned here for
remounis, losing 200 udd horses iu fight
ana drive.   Since then flghilug is nut
allowed until alter to-morrow, when lt
Is to be peace or war.
