(GrundForks News.)
That there ahould be seme uneasiness
In a district, which, if It is not a copper country, is nothing, over the present condition of tbe copper market, Is
not to be wondered at. And lhat uneasiness arises from two causes, which
may be put in two questions that are
asked dally by tbe people of tbe Boundary, viz : What la the cause of the drop?
aud how will It affect tbe operators!
Iu reference to tbe tlrsc 'one, the
slump does not seem to be permanent
In character or to bave Its souice in the
supply and demand of lhe metal. Thia
Is c.early shown from the reports of tbe
copper producers of the United States,
given at their meeting held In New
York City.
The more reasonable cause attributed
by experts Is tbe failure cf tbe Amalgamated Copper company, controlled by
John D Rockefeller, and tbe Rio Tluto
mines, controlled by the Roihchlldi, to
come to a mutual agreement.
With reference to the ques ion how
will it affect the Boundary operators,
and the tl-strict lo general, there are
several things wblca should be borne
tu mind. F.rst of all. If the findings of
the copper producers of the United
States be correct, and there la no reason
to doubt tbe official reports of such a
comprehensive body, tie depression
will be of short duration.
Then a fact ol great satisfaction to
all cur people ia that the tl anby company ate the cheapest Heaters of copper
on tbla continent. Aud alongside ol
tlut fact Is another ot paramount importance—.hut the rource oi supply lor
their works at Q •and Forks la paih'ips
the largest anti most easily *o k jd body
ol copper ore in the knowu wotltl.
The urea of ili-i lronsidea, Kuob Hill
and Victoria are broken du«n in I in-
tneuse bottles at veiy small cost, and
with the Installation of steam shov. Is
for loading, the coat at tbat er.d will be
still further redu.ed. 1'. must hot be
forgolttu tb.t these ores also cairy
large values of gold.
One of our local bank managers U
authority fjr the statement tbat tbe
Granby company can manufacute cop*
per with tbe market at nine cents, and
alill make a very hindBome profit.
Ia the face of these considerations,
the worst thai can reault is tbat the
company may for a time bave to be
content with a tmtiler margin than at
present. But v.e are assured tbat tbe
public need give Itself no anxiety over
any other serious effect.

Good Common Sense.
Canterbury   Outcrop:     The    Bevel-
stoke Herald strikes a chute of common
sense when it says it Is time we people
In Kootenay and Yale and Cariboo install d upon the Government  recognizing tbe Importance of the mining Industry of the Province.   The politicians
have tbeir railway policies,  their redistribution policies, their Chinese policies and stand us off with a line of guff
about doing everything to further tbe
development of the mineral resources
of the Province and we swallow It. The
members for the mining districts should
leave these Inkpot political squabbles to
people who bave nothing better 10 do,
and unite In Insisting first, last and all
tbe  time on the recognition   by   tbe
Government of tbe Importance of tbe
mining Industry and on tbe reorganization  of the mining department on a
practical basis of wide-awake efllclency.
There are a dozen ways In which a real,
live, up to date department could help
to  advertise  our   mineral   resources,
keep our miners and prospectors posted
and  gnlde the energy of the mining
population  at their disposal Into tbe
most profitable channels.    If the Government has not got a man, who can
aee how this can be done, then In the
name of goodness let them send elsewhere and get one that can.    And the
members for the mining districts should
not let np till this Is accomplished.
How the nocrs do It.
The following is an illustration of the
willingness oi the Beer:
During last December, just -before
Calvlnla waa visited by ibe invaders,
the village was honored by the visit of
an organ grloder.
His musical repertory waa of a pronounced loyal character. The turning of
tbe handle almost alwaya evoked the
stratus of "God Save the King." "Soldiers of the Queen," etc.
Here waa a line opportuulty for the
loyal sect to declare itself.
Altera section opposite the bouse of
a well-known "passlve-reslter," a peremptory order to "move on" came from
lis occupants.
lhe adjourning house, happened to be
tne domlci'e of a flag-waving loyalist,
aud needless lo say a liberal retaining
lee waa offered Ibe boycotted Itinerant
musician, wno, nothing loth, made tbe
welkin ring with patriotic airs, to tbe
delight of the loyalists and the dlacom-
H t tire of the ami loyals.
For the next few days tbe organ visited every house of any pretensions In
the neighborhood, and though the loyalists were In a minority, the music
grinder's treasury benefitted hugely by
thia species of radical opposition.
Alas for the poof loyallits—It waa a
will of the Boer Intelligence depart-
ment, for the manipulator of the organ
was a Boer spy, wnnse method of dis*
covering "who was who" In Calvlnla
was infallible In Its results.
Vcddor Committed Suicide.
At G-eenwood on Dec, 2G:h, lying
unconscious and his life's blood slowly
ebbing away from a bullett hole In ha
head Is Cnarles W. Vedder, a prominent business nun of this city.
Absolutely no cause can be assigned
tor self destruction other than a temporary St of despondency. Vedder was
fonnd sitting In a cbalr in his back
office by John W II inline at 1 o'clock.
At his feet, bearing sufficient testimony
to tbe terrible tragedy of self destruction, was an old rusty 38 Smith and
Weston revolver of five cartridges in
wbicb two were exploded. Tbe bullet
penetrated the right temple above the
ear settling In tbe base of the brain.
Doctors Spankie, Foster and Schon
after examining the wound pronounced
il fatal; Vedder may live on until midnight.—Greenwood Times.
Mr. Vedder was well known in East
Kootenay aa a life inaurance agent.
Lord Stratliconu's Appointment as
(From the London Dally Chronicle.)
The references to the rumored offer
of tbe governor-genera'sblp of Canada
to Lord Siratbcona have only dealt
with tbe Improbability of such an appointment from the political point of
view. But the social side is no less
Important, as even a man In Lord
Strathcona's position would find If he
were sent to Rldeau Hall. Sir John
Micdonald'a view of the position was
a common sense one, but perhaps tbat
nf tbe late Sir Tnotnris Mcllwraltb, of
Queensland, was a trifle more shrewd.
When there was talk In Australia il
demanding the appclntment of colonial
men to governorships. Sir Thomas
was natural.y spoken of In connection
with Queensland. "But what-would 1
do;" queried the Uauanaland statesman.
"If I were governor, and some old mate
balled me up rn Queen street asked me
to come and bave a drink!'
lather l.acombc's Vow.
The Montreal Witness tells tbe following of Father I.ucomb*, the mis-
slonary whore name Is wc'l known
throughout all C-nada :
D-cember 3rd, Is a memorable date
for Father Laconrbe, the venerable
Northwest missionary, who 1b now In
Montreal. Some 20 yeais ai;o he hjtd
decided to pass the winter with an encampment of Blackfeet Indians, In
order to teach tbem the Gospel and become more familiar with their language.
The Blickfeet were then In open war
with the Cree tribe. On the evening of
December 2nd, a heavy snow storm was
raging, aud as no sentries bad been
placed around ibe camp, the missionary
warned the chief that tbelr enemies
might take advantage of tbe stormy
night to attack tbem. No notice was
taken of his warning. A few hours
later tbe missionary was aroused from
his sleep by terrible war cries, the firing of guns and lamentations of women
and children. The Creea Asslnlbolnes.
numbering some UOU men, had attacked
the camp. Rushing out from his tent,
the intrepid missionary commenced to
administer to the wounded Indians
amidst volleys of bullets and seeing
that all the people In the camp would
probably be massacsed, be went down
on bis knees and tbere made tne promise mat If the battle ceased he would
every year, at the same date, offer
thanksgiving mass. Upon rising to his
feel Father Lacombe was shot In tbe
shoulder. At early dawn the Creen retreated, carrying away wltb them a
number of tbelr dead. The tragic
event Is still known among the members of tbe great battle." and yesterday morning Rev. Father Lacombe said
his mass in accomplishment of the vow
which be made during the course of
that tenlble night.

A Smelter Invention.
New York Dec. 27.—Regarding the
report that Edward Taylor Bradford,
the inventor and mining engineer, had
succeeded in disposing of his Interests
in a patent smeller for over a million
dollars just previous to bis death In
ibis city, AfrtdC. Purdy, a partner
of ibe dead man, said :
"Mr. Bradford had erected a smeller
which decreased tbe expense of reducing ores by two-thirds, an Invention to
which be bad devoted tbe greater portion of hla professional life. One of his
smellers Is In practical operation in
Utah and another la being erecteu In
tire suite of Washington. In addition
to ibis, he was negotiating tbe sale of a
rich mine in Alaska under an arrangement by which he was to receive a
large block ul slock.
"I was bis partner, and we were negotiating with four prominent bankers
of tbis city. Mr. Bradford was a comparatively poor man. He said thai
within a year be would bave realized
from gl,000,1*10 to 81 250,000. 1 am going to save part of this money fur his
estate, but am not sure what I can do
"His home was In Denver, where be
leaves a wife, a son and two daughters.
1 have received wotd from Mrs. Bradford to forward tbe remains of her
husband to Denver, and will comply
with ber requtst Monday.
Tbe present issue of The Tribune Is
the first of the year 1002. Of course
no one can predict, with certainty,
what will happen during the coming
year; but still, by putting two and two
together, one Is led to believe that January 10113 wlllsee a flourishing city at
Marysville. By the lime that January
19(13 comer, around we shall see, on this
magnificent townslte, one or more
smellers with their toweling smoke
stacks, tislngsky wards and proclaiming 10 the world lhat this is lhe Smelter
City of Eist Kootenay. We shall see
the first lead reflnary In Cicada In full
operation, converting the smelted ore
Into pig lead ready for the markets of
the world. We shall aee huge buildings
in which will be manufactured white
lead and lead pipes, thus for the first
time, In the history of lhe Dominion
supplying articles used to a vast extent
In Canada but heretofor imported although ibe raw material from which
.hey are made Is found in our mountains
In unlimited quantities. We shall see
on Main street a continuous stretch of
brick blocks, perhaps nol sky scrapers,
but still handsome brick stores two or
more stories In belgbth. Our streets
will be graded and macadamised. Our
electric light plant will be In full working order, our water works and sewer
system will be running. Tbe beautiful
benches to the north of lhe business
section will be doited with handsome
residences. The hospital will be In full
swing. Schools, churches and government buildings will be In evidence. Tbe
new bridge acroas .the St. Marys will
have been built so that the miners of
Perry Creek and the country across the
river will be enabled to outfit at Marysville.
By the time 11*03 comes round Marysville as a city will be a power In the
land, her population will constat of a
vaat aimy of workers, tbere will be no
room for drones In onr city. When the
whistles blow In the morning we shall
see this army of laboring men starling
for the various manufactories and work
shops with their tin dinner palls and
we shall know tbat these bearers of the
dinner pail are the back bone of our
City, the foundation on which It Is built,
and tie assurance of ber future greatness.
Maryaville will undcubttdly be, aa
long aa sbe exists, a working man's
town, a town whose population will be workers and a good
town at all times. Probably the
construction of no smelter In the west
bas been pushed forward so quickly
as this one at Marysville, Five weeks
ago there was hardly a sign to Indicate
the fact that a smelter waa to be built;
today one can see, not a complete
smelting plant It is true, but every indication to point to the fact lhat a
smelter Is actually under construction.
Huge buildings and massive frames
meet the eye at every turn, armies of
workmen each doing his share towards
tbe construction of Eaat Kootenay's
greatest Industrial institutions are met
on every hand. Car loads of supplies
may be seen at the yards In Cranbrook,
waiting only until such time as the spur
Into Marysville Is finished. Tbis Is all
on January 1st, 1002. Wbat will Maryaville be on January 1st, 10031
As a well known Cranbrook business
man said the other day. "Marysville
Is the Butte of East Kootenay," and so
sbe will be, .She will be tbe great
smelting, refining snd manufacturing city of tbe district. 'East
Kootenay Is all right" and Marysville Is
doing more to make it all right than
any other town In the district.

Inter -Impel In! Preferential Tariff.
The Canadian Gazette, published In
London, England, says 1 "Sir Charles
Tupper haa, we see, returned 10 Canada
from England more than ever convinced
that British public opinion Is making In
the direction of an Inter Imperial preferential tariff. The Times advocacy of
a duty on corn la specially pointed 10 as
Indicative of changing public opinion
here, but Sir Charles cannot be forgetful of the fact that the Times haa, at
totetvals, any time these past ten years
talked In much the same vein. We can
frankly sny that onr reading of the
algnaof the time In K-gland indicates
that protection In any form likely to
please the Canadian exporter, Is no
nearer realization here tban It waa
when, say, Canada adopted her pro-
British tariff preference."

mesiicateil Klrl whom lie could honor
Willi hla intentions with n view to matrimony.
Anil at lust bis diligent search was
rewarded. Madeline Gray possessed
every attraction anil virtue that John
had determined bis pretty wife should
have. She was pretty, brilliantly pretty. Her hair was like spun gold, and
her eyes were ns blue as tlie bluest of
china; but, as John Hampton remarked, beauty wns not everything, and
Madeline's bauds, though .small nnd
white, were the nimblest lu the world.
She cniild knit, ami she could sew, she
could wash, anil, yes, she could even
scrub, anil do It all In the daintiest nud
most becoming manner too. Truly
.Madeline Cray was n Jewel which only
required the setting or that little Norwood villa to perfect.
Anil John Hampton thought himself
extremely lucky when this model of
virtues accepted his attentions und later bin dignified proposal of marriage,
nml that was bow he happened to be
looking out of the window of his modest little apartments at Brighton one
very wet day in .May.
The scene wns depressing enough.
'1 lie sea looked dark and gloomy, the
boucb was deserted, anil now and then
a dejected looking Individual enveloped
in a mackintosh hurried along tbe parade witli the seeming object of getting borne as quickly us possible.
"Honeymoons are it mistake," said
John m himself. "If 1 hadn't wanted
n change of air, I shouldn't have come.
It's an Ideal tuorulug for tlio seaside, 1
must say*"
At that moment Mrs. Hampton entered the room, and be turned lo greet
"Not a very charming morning, my
dear, is It?" said lie amicably.
"Well, what can you expect from n
placp 'Ike Brighton?" suld bis wife
coolly. "It's all the same here whether
It rains or shines."
John raised his eyebrows In surprise.
"Why, my dear"— be began anxiously-
"You thought I liked Brighton, 1 suppose." interrupted Mrs. Hampton calmly. "Well, It's a pity you dldD't trouble to iUquJre before. As you arranged
tills holiday yourself, you mustn't
grumble, and now come and have your

He was simply astounded, He looked

day before?
And yet there she sat. her golden
bead as golden as ever, ber eyes its
blue, pouring out the coffee with as
much sang fiolc] as if she bad been
Mrs. Hampton for years.
"1 presume you ordered this breakfast." she said as she finished ber task.
"Yes, dear." said John.   "Is there"—
"No. there Isn't anything 1 like," she
replied, without troubling him to finish
bis remark, and looking nt the vlutids
on the table. "Will you please ring the
John obeyed, nnd when the maid appeared she gave an order for a new
laid egg anil a piece of hot toast, passing the cold meat to her husband with
tlie dignity ni a queen.
And a vory nood breakfast she made
loo. John was rather taken aback. In
bin Idea delicate and refined women
Should eat very little nnd of tbe daintiest viands, and this morning meal of
Ills wife's surprised him as much as
her manner had douc. She bad acted
so differently durlug their engagement.
Kviilcutly he had misunderstood ber,
and ho- determined to assert bis author
Hy ns her lord and master nt once.
There wns no time to lose. "Let ft woman get the upper baud," thought
John, "and your Influence Is gone forever."
Aud so, after the breakfast things
were cleared a way, be told ber to put
on her bonnet uud accompany bliu for
u Inns walk.
"Good gracious, John, are you mad?"
said bla wife.   "In weather like this!"
"Certainly. It will do you far more
good I linn stopping at borne. Come, do
us I tell vou."
Mrs. Hampton looked at blm scornfully.
"John Hampton," she said firmly, "if
you like to go out and uontrnet u chili,
I've no objection, except that I shall
hnve tbe trouble of nursing you, but
ilou't take me quite for a fool. I shall
ofay Indoors and write a long letter t*
And so, very much crestfallen ot III*
first attempt to assert bis authority,
Juhii put on his hat and went down on
the bench nnd amused himself by milking ducks and drakes on the waves.
Hut in time Ibis sport became tame,
and. after buying some cigarettes and a
newspaper, be retraced bis steps once
more to the bouse.
On bis way he passed a couple wbo
were walking under a large umbrella.
The man had bis rigiit arm round the
girl's waist, and the girl held up a
radiant faee to his and was chatting
iiaruiingry. Tbey appeared to be perfectly oblivious to the rain and everything but Just themselves.
Tor some reason or other John sighed
heavily and then to excuse himself of
ilie weakness looked after tbem contemptuously aud denounced them as
leluded fools.
When he reached homo, Mrs. Hump
;un met blm nt the door and asked
him to kindly post her letters. Tbere
were two—one lo mamma, certainly,
but the other was addressed to a youna
man who bad been a frequent calier al
the maternal home until their engage
ment was announced.
"Excuse me," be said In a dignified
manner. "May I be informed of the
contents of this letter?"
"No, you may not." said Mrs. Hnnip-
inti stiffly. "And your request Is an
insult, l'ray make baste hack, as lunch
eon Is on tlie table."
Aud again John obeyed, though wltb
n'l-.v III grace.
'Hie next day Mrs. Hampton declared
Hint linncymiiiiiis wire very dull.
"Yoti had heller give liotlco here and
[my the week's bills and lake rooms al
n f the best  hotels,    ll   will  he a
in at In see a lew people at mealtimes
even If one does not speak lo Ihem."
At this John made a strenuous in'11
lest, lie haled n large gathering, he
said, nnd much preferred a quiet life
llesldes. lie was hurt and mortified Ihal
she should so soon (Ire uf Ids company
In a honeymoon a wife and husband

should he n brief Mine sacred lo them

But Mrs. Hampton only curled liet

"That's nil nonsense," she said, with

And so in the hotel Ihey went, and

O               Waa at Last Raved From O
♦ the Fiend. ♦
o o
There dwelt years nnd yeara ago in ji
quaint old city on the hunks of the Rhino
a hnndsonie young jeweler who loved his
gems bo well that he thought them
brighter than any woman's ryes and was
impervious to the smiles of the lorellest
girls who came tn his shop to flirt with
the proprietor rather than for the soke
of the broken earrings uud bracelets
which made their excuse for doing no.
It was known everywhere at last that
Max Rudolph did not intend to marry,
that his heart was given to hts art—for
be was rnther nn artist in gems and gold
than a mere workman—and as lie wns
not only handsome, hut charming nnd reputed to he rich, this was a very provoking fact indeed to the young ladles who
had cherished hopes of winning his favor.
However, the Turks are right when
they sny that no man can escape his fate.
One dny, going into the country for the
lake of the fresh air and to enjoy himself
with rural daiirties nt a little wayside
tavern, there happened to be detailed to
wait upon him a beautiful young country
girl so spnrklingiy beautiful that he said
to himself: "She has diamond eyes and
ruby lips and teeth ef pearls. She is
made of jewels."
Then thero came iuto his mind the
thought that she was a jewel herself well
worth the winning nnd wearing. Still
ehe was hut n poor girl who earned her
broad as handmaid at an Inn, and ho
went his way without doing more than to
look at her. But he came again, and this
time threw her a kiss, nnd again nnd
this time the kiss was on her lips, nnd the
third timo be said to himself that at last
lie lind found tho woman be desired, nud
he wooed nnd married her and took her
home with him dressed in splendid garments, with silken shoes upon her feet
thnt had so often followed 1hc kin* in
wooden sabots.
For a Httlo while the jeweler's love
ruled bis soul. He forgot his most precious jewels for his fair Minn's snke, and
* happier pair of married lovers never
wandered toother in the moonlight or
vowed eternal constancy by the winter
fireside. It was not long, however. In a
year the jeweler had gone bnck to his old
habits. He spent hours in his workroom
watching the polishing of some rare
stone. lie wonld lenve his Mlna for
weeks together while ho sought some
gem of which ho had heard. He would
sit nnd gloat over a great diamond, turning it this way and thnt that the light
might tho better fall upon it, while she
6tit unheeded.
Mina never reproached him with this
change; but sbe grew sad nud often wept
when no ouo observed Iter.
The husband never noticed it. His love
of jewels lind grown to be a monomnnia
with him. Ho had not the usual desire
of craftmen for fame or for wealth. He
had become a miser, who hoarded gems
instead of gold. Ho refused to sell one
of them nt any price. Men snid thnt he
was mad and that sntau In person had
boon seen standing bohiud him whispering in his car.
Still be seemed to love bis wife at
times, nud to show it would bring jewels
and lay them in her lap and toll her how
to know their value.
The simple woman admired them, hut
plie could not comprehend the power they
had over her husband's heart. Aud once
or twice she also thought that she saw a
figure, hideous, though shadowy, at her
husband's side nnd cried out in terror.
She was now nbout to become a mother and was full of strange fancies, ns
women are, nnd the dark figure may have
been merely born of her Imagination. But
it seemed to her to have tbe shape of sa-
tan as be is represented iu tho pictures
that peasants see.
There wns nt tills time talk of a great
jewel—a ruby of wonderful size and brilliancy such ns Uo one had seen before.
None but a king could bo its owner,
men said, und there was a great contest
for It The handsome young jeweler with
the gleaming eyes and eager gestures
who gloated on Its splendor, Mnx Rudolph from Uhineland, wns thought to be
out of bis mind when he declared it
Should be his. But his It actually became.
Where he got nil the money no one
could guess, and there were those who
■aid (hat they saw n strange black figure sitting with him at bis inn one night
and heard tho chink of gold nnd that sntan helped him.
But the jewel was bis, nnd he returned
home to his Minn wild with joy. She sat
upon a little balcony thnt overhung tho
river watching for him, and he embraced
nnd kissed her and clasped her to his
"Now hold your hand," said he. "The
jewel shall lie in Its palm. See how lovely It is I Aud thou—thou nrt the loveliest
jewel of a woman. Thero is none like
thee anywhere."
Aud Minn, happy in his praises, looked
np at him rather than nt (ho gem—looked
and saw over his shoulder the hideous
fare of the fiend, nnd forgetting nil about
the ruby, clasped her bauds nnd shrieked
dloud, and as she did so tho jewel dropped front her palm, glittered at her feet
nn instant's space and glanced from the
floor of the balcony iuto the blue depths
of the Rhine.
Rudolph had started to seize It but
when he saw tie was too late be uttered
a hideous imprecation and lifted his band
threateningly above Ids wife's head.
"Low born peasant kitchen drudge,
COW driver, beer server!" ho shrieked
"Kool that I wns to think thnt your
"■Intns.v -lingers could hold jewels fait!
Pool thnt I wns to marry n course cren
tare like you, born to cat blnck bread and
walk barefoot!"
And thou ho struck her a furious blow
upon her white bosom, nud stic staggcrel
and fell.
The balcony was only defended by a
rail of carved wood that tiriftj and weather had weakened long ago. As the form
of Minn s( nick it it broke from its fastenings, aud she fell with a splash into
the river and vnnished bcucuth its waters, and Max Rudolph saw beside him
tlie figure she bad seou, and knew It foi
sat tin's self.
"Demon, you have done this'" be cried
•s he sprang Into the water nfter his
She had risen to the surface, and he
caught her and swam with her to laud.
He Implored Uer pardon, and she gave. It
to him freely. But, alas, the deed wbb
done. In a little while she lay in her
coffin with her baby on her bosom, and be
followed her to the grave, and over her,
the turf grew green in time, and a stone"
was placed on which were these words:
"Minn, the beloved wife of Max Rudolph.   A jewel lost to hitu forever."
Max returned to his desolate home and
dwelt there alone. Shortly he began *Eis
pursuit of rare jewels again with more
energy than ever. No one knew what be
did with them, for no one saw him go at
midnight to his wife's grave nnd there
bury them one after another until the sod
above her heart was rich with jewels.
He lived on wretched food, with scarcely fire enough to warm him. He wore the
garb of a beggar. Piece by piece the old
furniture of his bouse, its pictures und its
ornaments were Bold, the money converted into gems. But it was to Miua's grave
that he bore them, and there he buried
them, with prayers nnd tears, and the
black fiend that hud haunted his youth
ceased to appear to him, nor was it ever
seen by nny one at his shoulder.
At last it was known that he had sold
his home and his land und retained only
the right to dwell, while he lived, in the
room from which extended the balcony—
tho balcony on which Minn stood when
be laid the jewel in her palm and whence
she had fallen to her death beneath his
blow upon her bosom.
There he Bat often tho whole night
through. A fatal disease had come upon
him. He knew Its dread symptoms well,
but he sought no physician. Death wns
welcome to him. Only he prnyed always
for Boine token that Mine, hud forgiven
him. His hair wns white as bleached
linen. He had the aspect of a very aged
man, though ho was not really old.
Grief and remorse and terror of the fiend
had made him what he was, and now ho
wns poor—so poor that he could not buy
the smallest gem to buvy in his murdered
wife's grave.
One night he bad In the house only one
little piece of black btend and no more.
He sat upon a wooden bench, and in the
corner lay an old straw bed. He sat in
the balcony. The broken rail had not
been mended. The water sobbed below.
He was weeping—weeping for her whom
he had killed so long ago — and his remorse and grief would have touched the
hardest heart that could have read his
Assuredly ft appealad to heaven's mercy, for as the clock ip a tower hard by
struck midnight a strange thing happened. The waves, never so high before, began to leap up and wash the floor of the
old balcony. They were white in tbe
moonlight—white ns wool—and they looked to hlin sometimes like tbe faces and
hands and arms of sea spirits, so that in
spite of himself he stretched out his own
hands to touch them, and, grasping something that melted between bis fingers,
still held fast a smi.ll, hard substance,
which, as be opened bis palm, glowed like
a coal of fire.
A candle stood upon the hearth within.
Trembling and overwhelmed with superstitious terror, he a roue and staggered toward it and saw tbat what he held was n
great ruby, the very stone that he had
laid In Mina's palm so long ago, the
gem of priceless value for the possession
of which be had vied with kings.
An hour later tbe moon at her setting
looked on bim as be tottered over the
road to the graveyard and knelt at last
beside Mina's grave.
There, wltb a little knife be carried, he
dug a hole and buried tho ruby a band's
depth deep, close against the white stone
ou which ber name was1 written, and
with the effort bis strength forsook htm.
He knew that the supreme moment was
at hand.
"Minn, Minn!" he cried. "Murdered an
gel, intercede for me with heaven!"
And suddenly all nbout and above the
grave began to glow with a clear light
like that of jewels, and In the midst ho
saw the figure of an angel who bore his
wife's face holding out her nrins toward
The next morning some laborers found
Max Rudolph dead beside his wife's
tomb, and for months men searched the
house where he had dwelt for the treasure he wns believed to have bidden. But
no one ever thought of looking in uie
right plnce. No one dreamed of what we
know—that he had offered all he bad to
his murdered love and to the heaven he
had so offended and that the turf beneath
which Minu sleeps is rich with jewels.
Wholesale Weddliiff-a.
At Plougastel, In Brittany, France,
there is but one day a year on which,
from time immemorial, weddings are al
lowed to take place —namely, on the
feast of St. Frances, a model Christian
wife and mother, for whom the citizens
of Plougastel have the greatest veneration, which they chiefly manifest by set
ting all the weddings for that day.
This day of weddings by the wholesale
Is, of course, a feast for tbe whole vil
lage. In the early morning all tbe cou
pies meet on the town's public square.
Thence they go to the city hall, where
the civil ceremony is gone through with.
This over, a procession is formed, and all
the couples, followed by tbelr respective
friends, march three times around the
village before entering tbe church where
the religious ceremony la performed.
Hereupon follows tbe banquet, which is
hold at the common expense.
The last wedding feast sow no less
than 2,000 guests partaking of the bounteous repnst. According to an eyewitness of these fraternal agapie, apart from
the tables nt which sat the wedded couples plates were conspicuous by their absence. Thero wns on an average one
plate to every four guests. That little
deficiency, however, did not prevent the
Plougastelites from enjoying themselves
capitally during the six days' duration of
the ceremonies.

Their Officers.
The Seaforth Highland Regiment
may be surprised perhaps to learn
that their renowned corps once rose
in mutiny aguinst their officers. The
regiment was raised by Lord Seaforth among his tenantry, but a
large, proportion of the men were
uot Mackcnzies, as would have been
expected. At some prehistoric ditto
—history does not go far back in tho
Highlands — the Clan Macrae emigrated to the Mackenzie region, and
became henceforth the most devoted
supporters of the chief. Many of
them joined the now regiment. In
1778, the men being trained and fit
for service, it received orders to embark for dorse:,'. A rumor spread
among the soldiers, few of whom
spoke English, that the Government
had sold them to the East India
Company. The Macraes headed a
protest, which was disregarded, and
so, quite calmly and quietly, -they
inarched out of Edinburgh Cnstlo,

point, nearly all tho Mnckenzies Joined thoir hereditary friends. And
thoro the honest fellows sat three
days aud three nights, keeping the
strictest discipline. Fortunately the
Scottish commander-in-chief at tho
time wns a man of sense. Instead
of attacking the innocent criminals;
who meant no harm, ho discussed
matters witli thorn, and finally gave
them a written undertaking that
thoir suspicions were unfounded. The

Sailors' Trousers.
Everybody knows that British sail*

bottom,     but    everybody     may  not j
know     that     thoy  can  either  make,
mend    or    wash    their    own clothes, j
Now, at one time, every sailor    had,
sufficient cloth given out to make the
articles in question,  with just a bit
over for future repairs.        Hut    here

naturally, ho kept the repairing   Lit

was   to cut a piece out of his  trouser* I

Little Honiemnking Hints.
The coffee should be served yery
hot. and with hot milk.
Tho plates should be properly heated and placed before the carver. |
A meal should never be announced
until everything is in readiness,
Tbe dining-room should bo in perfect order before breakfast is served,
The table should always be so kept
as to be ready for a guest with but
a moment's notice.
A cotton flannel "silence cloth"
not only makes the tablecloth look
Infinitely handsomer, but preserves
the varntshod surface from stains
from hot dishes.
The butter should be kept in tho
refrigerator until tho last minute iu
summer, but kept where it will bo
soft enough to spread easily in winter.

—Title of Nobility Around Which i
Is a Wet* of Rowiiice. |
Lying dead in bis least important
feat of Dunne Lodge,  near .Stirling, j
is    Edmund     Archibald    Stuart, fif- I
teentlr-Earl  of Moray,  Lord Doune,
St. Colore and Abernethy and   Lord
Stuart of Castle Stuart.
The words quoted in tbe title of
this article refer to a claim the deceased earl used to make at "every
meeting of the Scottish peers, when
"1, the iCnTi of "Moray," used to declare that the Right Hon. Walter
John Francis, Earl of Mar and Kel-
lie, cannot be called or admitted to
vote in this election of peers next in
order to the Earl of Caithness and
prior in order to me, tbe Earl of
This declaration, "I, the Earl of
Moray,'1 has been heard in llolyrood
House again nnd again for many
years. The origin of the claim is to
be found iu the fact that tho original earl, the great Itogont Moray,
was created Earl of Moray by Queen
Mary two years before tlio creation
of the title of the Earl of Mar. Tho
claim, however, has always been disputed, and tbe Earl of Mar still retains liis prior position on the roll
of poors of Scotland.
There is no title uf nobility, either In England or Scotland, around
which n greater web of romance lias
boon Woven than that of the earldom
of Moray. The mere fact that thoy
are Stuarts with tho roynl but irregular blood of the great Scottish
house in thoir vcni."" would alone invest the scions of this groat, house
with historic interest — an interest
which they share with other Stuarts, now represented by the Martinis of Bute, tlie Earl of Galloway.
the Karl of Castle Stuart and other noble lines.
ilut tbe earldom of Moray is peculiar in tho manner of its descent.
The first earl, the Itegent, was murdered by Hamilton, of Dothwoll-
Iiangli, and the earldom descended,
not to any direct issue, but to his
sou-in-law, known as tho Bonnie
Earl of Moray, Who was murdered
in his turn. Tho third earl healed
life feud by marrying the daughter
of his .'n'.her's murderer. And then
we come to tne singular fnct that a
second sou and afterwards two brothers succeeded as fifth, sixth and
seventh earls, from which point the
succession continues in the direct
line to Francis, the ninth carl.
From this point tho earldom descended to George Philip; fourteenth
earl, and then, all the intervening
members of the family who could
have succeeded to the title having
died, it reverted bnck to the nobleman now deceased, who bad descended from Uie ninth earl, and who
was the eldest son of a country parson holding a living of £158 a
The now Earl of Moray was already fifty-five years of ago; he had
been married for fifteen years to the
daughter of a clergyman of . Clap-
ham, and bo was suddenly raised
from n position almost of indigence
to one of the highest in the Scottish peerage, to a seat in the House
of Lords, to the ownership of Doni-
bristle, in Fifeshire, of OnstId Stuart, in Invftfh ess-shire; of Dor ha way
Castle, in Elginshire, und of Douno
Lodge, in Perthshire, together with
vust territories in all of these counties and a large part of the fashionably quarter of tho city of Edinburgh.
It is difficult to imagine a greater
change in the fortunes of a family
than that which was effected by the
failure of the direct line of tho Earls
of Moray. Such things have, of
course, frequently happened in many
noble families, and they supply some
of the most romantic episodes of tho
peerage. But here' wns the son of a
ptmplo English clergyman raided nt
once to nobility and wealth, while
bis brothers and his sister received
patents of precedence as sons and a
daughter of an earl.
Unhappily, fortune did not come
to the Earl of Moray with both
hands full. At the timo when he
succeeded to tho tit'o and estates
he was suffering from nn incurable
disease. Thero is something pathetic in the faeUthat the inheritor
of the glories of the Scottish monarchy, of historic associations with
Mary Stuart and Dnrnloy, and of
titles which go back lo the time of
David I. and Hubert Bruce, should
bo fated to end his life in n condition of pitiful splendor.

"The Hudson bay marten, the little fne
bearer whose shin is ever popular and at
times exceedingly Valuable, is still plenu- in that region of fur bearers," said \V.
B. Salmon, one-time a trapper for tuii
Hudson Bay company, "but I believe it
would have been virtually extinct them
long ago if it were not for a habit It ha«
of making periodical disappearances, fot
the mystery of which I never heard any
satisfactory explanation.
"These disappearances occur everyfen
years. Where the animals go to no one
knows. No dead ones nre ever found, ani
no one has yet discovered any evidence of
thoir migration to any other region. A
few martens, of course, remain ou their
old feeding grounds, hut during the season of the disappearance of their fellows
none of them will touch the bait in a
trap, and consequently none is caught.
The next year the martens arc ' bnck
tgain iu their old haunts as numerous ni
ever aud for ten yeara more submit to
being caught.
"The Hudson bay martens seem to be
the only ones of the species that have
this strange habit. The Lake Superior

the old stand year iu and year out, housing themselves in hollow trees ip the
deepest woods nud making tlfe n perpetual burden to birds, squirrels, rabbits uud

"The Lake Superior marten has one
predilection of the palate, in which he resembles the hear. That is a passion for
honey. He will line a wild bee to its
home with the precision of the most expert bee hunter, and the hidden sweets
of tbat bee colony will have to be In a
most inaccessible place if the marten
doesn't soon revel in them.
"Like the male mink, the mate marten
has an overpowering love not only for
his own offspring, hut for tho offspring
of his fellow martens—such peculiar loVe,
indeed, that If it wasn't for the instinct
and shrewdness of the mother martens
the race of martens would havo been unknown long ago. The male marten is so
fond of his young that he will eat tbem
up whenever be happens to find tbem.
The mother, therefore, hears her young
in some secret hiding place, nnd keeps
them hidden until they are half grown
and able to defy the cannibalistic love of
their sire. The female mink exercises
the same instinct with her progeny, for
tho father of them, as fond as he Is of

Where Many liinnlvrnnti Arrive.
Ellis island, in New York harbor,
where countless immigrants land, afford a
n rnre study iu osculation. At no place
in the wide world Is there so much kissing done. The oscillatory performance Is
of the continuous variety, ami day In nnd
day out, uo matter what the weather
conditions are, the kissing show goes on.
Tho particular spot where long separated friends and relatives thus come together in earnest embrace is officially
known as the bureau of information, located near tho western part of the building wherein Immigrants froi.i the remotest quarters of the globe are received, examined and, if not found wanting,
given into the fostering care of Miss Columbia and her Uncle Sam. The gate
through which' the eligible Immigrants
emerge to become residents of the uew
world Is known ns tbe kissing gate.

bands and Indulge in n furtive kiss under
the cold eye of the oQicinls, who are so

has saved enough money to send for bis
gray haired parents, clasps them in
sturdy embrace, and here may be found
sadly disappointed ones, who wait for
friends thnt never come. There nre tears
mingled with the joy of meeting and
stories of longing and privation to bo
told afterward.
"There's somebody or other kissing
there oil day long," say the oflieinls, for
thousands upon thousands of Immigrants
pass through this gateway to tho United
States. Many nationalities arc represented in the hugging exercise—French,
Spanish, Qehnan, American. Uttssinn,
Scandinavian, Dutch, Danish, Servian,
Czech, Italian, ltasque. The Italians,
like the French, are great ones for kissing, and it is not uncommon to see two
hoarded men standing in a bearlike embrace kissing like two turtle doves, while

Karly Theatre -Costume*.
The ex^et inuuncr in which tho
actors dressud for their parts cannot perhaps be determined, but it is
"certain that considerable sums of
money wore expended on costumes.
OosHon (in 1577*), in his "School of
Abuse," inveighs against the "costly apparel" worn on the stafje.
while Prynne, in his "Histriomas-
tix," some half a century Inter,
makes a similar complaint, in ono
case we learn from llcnslowe's Wary
thai us much as £10 was paid for
a single cloak, which, if the
correct, is a very high figure; considering tho value nt money 300
years ngo. No doubt the same costumes would bo used over and oyer
again in different plays and would
become old and stale, but when now
they certainly appear to have been
costly. In the inventory of lhe apparel belonging to the Admiral's
men in L508 thoro are some interesting items: "Item, a cloak trimmed with copper lace and rod velvet
breeches," for Tainburlaiie; "item,
fine Matin doublets laid with gold
lace, for Henry V.; "item, a cloak
with gold buttons." From those
items it would seem that magnlil-
Conco rather than historical propriety was aimed at. True that in
the city pageant entitled "Britannia's Honor," we read of one of the
characters being arrayed in "a rich
liomnn antique habit." but then we
do hot know whnt Ideas tho men of
.lames I.'s time had about "a rich
Roman antique habit." We know
for certain that in the eighteenth
century historical accuracy was not
thought of in stage dresses, and may
fairly assume the same to have been
tho case a hundred years earlier. —

wanted to exchange It after wearing it
home, "does not become me."
"It Is a remarkably pretty hat," suggested tlie milliner. -
"Oh, yVs," admitted the patron; "taken

"In that case," Insisted the .milliner,
"the hat is all right, and you are the oae

Their Hold Upon Life i* Slight, and
Mothers Havo a Great Responsibility.
Every baby—every little one—require.1- constant care and watchfulness, nud when a trace of Illness is
noticeable, the remedy should be
promptly applied. Tho little ones
are frajl. Their hold upon life is
slight. The slightest symptom of should bo met by the propor
corrective medicine. Dairy's . Own
Tablets have a record surpassing all
other medicines for the curo of children's ailments. They nre purely
vcgetrtfile and guaranteed to contain
no opiate or poisonous drugs such
as form the base of most so-called
"soothing" medicinis. FOr sour
stomach, colic, simple fevers, consti-
paiinn, nil bowell troubles, tho irritation accompanying tho cutting of
teeth, sleeplessness and similar
symptoms, these Tablets nre without an equal. They uct directly
upon the organs which cause the
troubles, and gently but effectively
remove the causo and bring back the
condition of perfect, hearty health.
Every mother who hus used these
Tablets for her little onos praises
them, which is tho best evidence of
thoir great worth. Mrs. David Duf-
ff.ld, I'onsonby, Ont., snys : "Daby's
Own Tablets are a wonderful medicine. 1 think they saved my baby's
lli'c, and I gratefully recommend
them to other mothers. Ask your
druggist for Daby'B Own Tablets. If
le does not keep them send 2."i cents
direct to us and we will forward a
box prepaid. We have a valuable little booklet on the oaro of children
and how to treat their minor nil-

The Slory of a Young Clirl Who Suffered from Headaches, Dizziness
and Fainting Spells—Her Health
Became so Dad That She Was
Forced to (Jive Up School.
Miss Catherine McLellan is a
young lady well known in Oharlotte-
town, P.B.I., and greatly esteemed
among her acquaintances. Like so
many other young ladies throughout
the lun-d, Miss McLellan fell a victim to anaemia, or poorness of
blood, and although several medicines were tried, she found nothing
to help her until she began using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People.
Miss McLellan tells the story of her
illness as follows : "I am now IS
years of age, and for a considerable
time suffered jnucli from anuemia.
My blood had almost turned to water, and I was very weak and pale ;
iu fact could not undergo the least
exertion. My appetite failed me ; I
suffered from headaches; if I stooped
1 would become di/.7.y, and frequently 1 suffered from fainting spells. J
tried several kinds of medicine and
doctors prescribed for me, but instead of getting better I was gradually growing weaker, and eventually
had to discontinue going to school.
About this Lime I mwl the testimonial of a girl whose condition was
similar to mine, who had been cured
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I then
decided to try these pills, and have
every reason to be gratified that I
did so, as they have completely restored my liealth. Every one of the
symptoms that had made my life so
miserable have disappeared, nnd I
am now enjoying as good health as
any girl of my age could wish, and
I shall always have a good word .Lo
say for  Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills.
Miss McLellan further stated that
while she was not desirous of publicity in mutters of this kind, she
nevertheless felt that her experience,
if known might be the means of
bringing health to some other sufferer, nnd it is this very praiseworthy motive that has Induced her1
to give the above statement for publication.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make rich,
red blood, and give tone to tbe
nerves. It is because of this that
they bring bright eyes, rosy cheeks
and light footsteps to girls who
have boon woary, pale and listless
and had begun to feel that life was
a burden. Pale and anaemic girls
evorywhere should give these pflla
a fair trial as they are certain to
restore health and strength. Sic

Peace Humors Revived.
The peace rumors, discussed a week
ago, have grown stronger and more
circumstantial in the past day or two
It is repeatedly asserted from various
sources that offers of liberal terms have
been unofficially communicated to tie
Boers both In Holland and South Africa,
and wltb some prospects of success. An
encouraging feature is that tbe Boers
dually realize, not only that there Is no
possibility of aid of any nature from
European government, but that the latter are really using them as a cat's paw.
The longer the war continues the better
the continental powers will be pleased,
as by Its prolongation they are enabled
to attack Biitlsh interests In all parts
of-the world with impunity. Men of
foresight understood this two years ago
but it Is only recently thst it has forced
Itself on the Boer conviction with such
an affect on their feelings as can readl
ly be Imagined. At all events news of
this nature Is sufficiently credited to
cause an impression even on the stock
marset to-day that peace is not  far off.
