Father  Pat  Dead.
The death of the Rev. Henry Irwin
better known In the Kuoteoay Country
aa "Father Pat" will come aa a ahock
to all who had the honor of hla acquaintance.
Father Pat died'In Montreal, tbe
other day, while on hie way to
England whither he waa going to enjoy
a well earned reat and to recruit hit
health which had become somewhat
shattered by yeara of wprk In the mining camps of the Kootenaya.
Hla death I. an Irreparable lose to hla
frlenda and will leave a blank In tbe
peraonelle of the Kootenaya which will
ba Impossible to fill. First aad
everytbing elae afterwarda waa Father
Pat'a watchword. He had a heart that
waa alwaya open and ready to alleviate
hnman suffering, mental or bodily, and
often at the coat of the neceaaitiee of
life tor hlmaelf. Time aad time again
he haa turned ont of his own cabin and
bed to nnrse therein some fever stricken
miner. Many a time has be given his
last dollar to one whom be thought
needed It more than himself. On one
of hla tripe to Eaat Kootenay In '98
Father Pat turned up In a very awell
ault of eiothea, and it. mnat be remembered that Father Pat as a rule did not
wear good clothes, and the writer re.
marked the fact and twitted Father
Pat with being a dnde. "My dear fel-
,ow" said Father Pat: "the hotel keep-
era In Hoasland gave me theae (or a
Chrlatmaa preaent because they knew
that I could not keep money," and it
waa true that the hotel men of Golden
city knew that had they given Father
Pat money he would have given It to
tome one that he thought more needy
than hlmaelf inaide of 24 hours. This is
given aa a small example of the character of the man,which came under the
personal observation of the writer.
The hletory of Britiab Columbia will,
ao donbt be written aome day and of
courae the early history of the
Kootenaya will be part of the theme,
Thle will be Incomplete without the
etory of Father Pat that good man who
lived up*to that goldtn rule, lhat embraces more than all the churchea can
teach, he loved his fellow man. Rev.
Irwin wae a native of Ireland and a
graduate of Kettle college, Oxford, He
waa ordained aa a clergyman of the
Church of England In 1888 and waa curate of Rugby nutll 1889. In the latter
year he cams to British Columbia aod
waa appointed chaplain to the Bishop
of New V/eatmlnater, and missionary of
tbe large dlatrict which comprised the
diocese. He married Mtaa lone, but
waa aoon after left a widower. Thia
waa a loaa from which he never fully
recovered aa he had a great s Section
for hie wife. In 1896 he waa made
rector of the Anglican cburch at Rowland and waa a prominent figure In good

St,  Eugene May  Resume.
From the Herald—
Charles Parrel of the Society Girl et
Moyie, was in town Monday. Speaking
of mining in general throughout the district he aald that South Bast Kootenay
would have to wait until tbe tide took a
turn, as It waa the history ol every district to have ita alow times. "It is rumored," said Mr. Farrell, "tbat the St.
Eugene would renume, aa it had secured
a two yeara' contract for its output. I
know nothing as to the feels, but hope
tbat it may be true."
From tka Cranbrook Herald,
An enthusiastic meeting of citlsena
was held laat Saturday evening at the
Cranbrook hotel reading room for tbe
purpose of conferring with Mr. B. C.
Smith, M. L. A, in reference lo tbe
needs of thia part of the district that
ahonld receive tbe attention of the provincial parliament at the coming session.
Mr. M. Mclnneaa waa called to tbe
chair and W. P. Gurd named as tecre-
tary. Mr. Mclnnea tben defined the
object of the meeting and celled on Mr.
Ryan for an expression of opinion.
Mr. Rvaa, In a clear and concise manner, set forth the needa of a cutoff rood
to Perry creek and the construction of a
bridge over tbe St. Mary's near the
month of Perry creak to give tbe people
of Marysville, Klmberley and tbe St.
Mary'a valley a direct and much
shorter route to Cranbrook. Be said aa
to tbe building of the cutoff from Cranbrook to Booth or Six Mile creek,.there
wea no question aa to the feaaibility of
Ita constrnction, notwithstanding tbe
opinion of officials who bave aeemed determined to oppose thet particular piece
of work.
Mr. Simpson exp'ained tbe deairea of
the upper portion of the valley for improved roads to Cranbrook and tbe necessity of an extension of tbe road from
the road Irom the foot of St. Mary'a
lake up the valley to tbe Forka aud the
expenditure of tbe appropriation made
for building the road from Klmberley to
tbe Skukuoichnck country.
Mr. Hutchison bad gone over'tbe cutoff route to Perry creek with Mr. Ryen
and heartily coincided with the viewa of
that gentleman as to the practicability
of ita conatructiod.
Dr. King spoke boon tbe need of road
Improvement the Perry creek district,
the bridge across the St. Mary'a and the
aborter route north.
Mr. Miner said that be had offered to
take Mr. Killeen over the Parry creek
route but that hla offer bad been refused
Mr. Gurd addressed himself to tbe
meeting on the subjects presented and
urged action to bring about the necessary improvements.
Mr. Ryan brought up tbe question of
incorporation and slid tbat in hie opinion what the people in towns tbe size of
Cranbrook needed was a law tbat would
permit partial Incorporation «o tbat a
municipality might be formed on an
economical basis tbat wonld embody tbe
questions of water, fire and sewerage and
otber featnrea only tbat might be considered necessary.
Rev. Fortune aaid that he appreciated
the importance of good roada to the
mining camps and outlying diatricta but
he wonld urge some lorm of incorporation tbat would give Ire protection end
a strict enforcement of tbe sanitary laws
of the province, A fire in tbe business
poition of tbe city would prove a disastrous blow and the health of the community ebould not be jeopardized by
careless people who gave no thought to
sanitary conditions.
Mr. Smith then replied steting tbat be
thanked tbe people of Cranbrook for
tbelr manifest Interest in the welfere of
the community and the district and
would promise to do all in his power
to bring about the improvements asked
for, especially aa the people of Cranbrook seemed exceedingly modest in their
demands. He aaid, however, that tbe
only hope he bad was the overthrow of
the government. Referring then to another aubject he explained the unlorto-
nate conditions following tbe discontin
uance of the mall route from Fort Steele
to Windermere, alnce it left the territory
north of Port Steele without direct com'
munication with the government officera
or with Cranbrook, the banking center
of the district, end asked tbe co-operation of Cranbrook in having the route
The question was freely discussed and
the consensus of opinion aeemed to be
heartily in favor of re-establishing tbe
route just tbe same as before, without
the two stege trips a week between Fort
Steele an Cranbrook. as tbat waa not
deemed necessary io view of the fact
that there is a daily mail now betweer.

The placer grounda of Weaver creek

found. It ia a beautiful piece ol gold,

finding of tbis nugget has aroused great
Interest in Weaver, and it will in a'l

Prospects  for the District

Ing eventa eaat their rbadowa before,
so do the events of the laat few months
preenrse a wonderful development and
a tremendons Influx of population into
onr dlatrict In tbe near futnre.
Aa we have had occasion to remark,
In some prevloua articles In this paper,
the eyce of tbe Investing world are
turned, and turned favorably, on
South Eaat Kootenay.
Cradled between tbe Rockies and the
Selklrke, South East Kootenay haa lain
dormant for some yeara owing to various causes," lack of railway communication being the principal one. But
with the constrnction of tbe Crow's
Neat railway things began to take a
change. Aa all great things come slowly, ao haa the development of the resources of this district come slowly, but
very surely; and now on the eve of the
opening np of apring South Eaat Kootenay la looking forward to a magnificent
future. Those who are fortunate
enough to own property In any of the
many prosperous and growing towna of
the district are to be thoroughly congratulated. Many may bave "bnngon"
to their holdings during depreaalng
times bnt, their faith In the country
having stood firm, they will shortly
reap tbe reward that is by right coming to them.
Perhaps no part of the dlatrict Is at
present, being taken more lntereat in,
both by tha people la the country and
outside, than the St. Mary'a Valley and
tne country tributary to It. Thia district Is by no means new to the hardy
Eaat Kootenay prospector for a trail of
hla pick and ahovel, hla cabin and hla
claim atakes can be followed for many
mllea oa both sides of that beautiful
mountain torrent. But like pioneer
prospectors In otber parte of tka province the claim holder on the St.
Marya haa had to face that bug bear of
all mining enterprlaea lack of transportation.
No matter how rich the showing., no
matter how promising the Indications
may have been, the very fact of tha St.
Marys claims being ao far from railway
and water transportation baa kept them

portatljn facilities. The building of the
Klmberley branch of the C. P. R. and
the building of the branch Into Maryaville were both atepa In the right
direction but the continuation of the
latter branch up the valley of the St.
Mary* will bring, not one, bnt a dozen
or mora valuable propertlea within
transportation distances and these wit
be able to give a good account of themselves wben the time comes.
Tbe erection of the smelter, refinery
and white lead works at Marysville
will give an additional Impetus to mining activity In the whole district especially in the St. Marya country. The
building np of many prosperous towns
and mining cam pi will extend the already good market which the ranchere
and farmera of tbe dlatrict have. The
general activity will undoubtedly attract capital from tbe monled centera
of the eaat and from Europe and a very
short tlma from now South Eaat Kootenay will be the mecca of the capitalist
seeking good and safe Investment for
his money.

A Story of 1825 and 1900
IX ACCDST, 1900.
Under tho afternoon sun the restless
waters (if S:\ri Francisco bay flung dia-
niunds und op-lls at such huiuuu eyes ua
chanced to look ou tbem,
Two youiig people who strolled down
to the Preuidlo bench, however, had no
glances to spare for nny thing so commonplace us ilirunuiids and opals. For
Lieutenant Anderson was gazing into the
depths ut' tin- great, aoft black eyea of
AUss Pachita de Sulu, and Miss I'achita
de Sola was looking up into the ardent
blue ones of Lieutenant Anderson. She
seemed to like it.
The tall young soldier with the fuii*
hflil*. broad shoulders and square, manly
Saxon face had not been long released
from tho hard work nud harder restraint
of West Point, and iu his new freedom
of army life went at things with nn energy of desire that was <juite irresistible.
Miss Pachita de Sola found it so, ns had
half a dozen other girls within as many
mouths. Il was a wholly serious business
with the lieutenant this time, though.
lie had been in California but a few
weeks, and this daughter of an ancient
though decayed Spanish family, ns American in education and thought ns himself,
was ravishing in her novelty. Altogether
feminine, Paehita, nt one moment childlike and clinging; the next worldly, witty
uud mocking; then, with tho lids hiding
those lovely, big'eyes nf hers, her whole
aspect suggested— especially to a lieutenant wiih ample means to marry—possibilities of tenderness unspeakable.
No wonder that when Miss Pachita
permitted Lieutenant Anderson to gaze
down into her eyes aud returned an answering look, giving a little sigh, too, his
head went after his heart, which had
been lost for au eternity—that is to gay,
for two terrific, sleepless nights.
But the young lady was discreet, and,
gently clasping his fingers, removed them
from her wnist, saying demurely:
"Don't be foolish, John. Somebody
may be looking."
This in ft city nnd in full sight of the
ever vigilant garrison struck John as being not Improbable,
Instant in action, as became a soldier,
Lieutenant Anderson executed a flank
movement on a sand bank and seated
Miss de Sola in its lee, on u large, water
whitened, sun dried log of driftwood.
Then this consummate tactician repeated
the original attack with entire success.
"Pachita, oh, my darling!" breathed
the ecstatic lieutenant, struining her to
his side and immediately showing u disposition to put a knee upon tho beach.
"Well, John?" and the smile of love
nnd gratified vanity that smote bis eyes
blinded them.
".Name the day, oh, Tachita; I cannot
live (ill you do!"
Pachita pursed her full, red Hps, puckered tlie midnight eyebrows and considered profoundly, digging deep Into the
sand with his cane tho while.
"The day, my own love—the duy,"
gasped John.
"Pear me," Miss do Sola exclaimed
suddenly, "what a beautiful shell!"
"H!nst the shell!" cried Lieutenaut Anderson,  reaching for what she bad  un**
earthed, to east it wrathfully out among
the unnoticed diamonds and opals.
Hut he was restrained in wonder.

The snme sun wns enriching tbe dancing waters of the same bay with diamonds and opals. A young couple wbo
Strolled down to the Presidio beach admired the view very much, uud Senorita
Pachita de Sola had no occasion to remind the lieutenant by her side that
somebody might be looking. Lieutenant
Juan de IScbeandiil would have liked
greatly to coil his arm about tbat slim
waist, but did not dare, though there was
only a small and sleepy garrison and no
city nt ail behind them—only the padres
and Indians at the mission Dolores, far
over the sand hills, and a cabin or two
down at the emburcadero, entirely out of
sight. Pacliitn de Sola was niece of
Commandaute Don Luis Antonio Arguel-
lo, and though he. Lieutenant Juan do
Echeniitlin was n nephew of Don Jose
Maria, or the same name, one, even
though an aristocrat, has under all circumstances to show proper respect for
his commanding oJBcer, Besides, tbe
Senorita Pachita had twice refused his
friendly offered hand. It was bestowed
upon Knsign Tibureio Mendez nt Monterey, though this was not known to a certainly at the Presidio.
Lieutenant Juan de Kiln-andia and
Senorita Pachita de Sola walked leisurely
to the little wharf where that wonderful
vessel, constructed but recently by a
wandering British f-ailor, lay preparing
for a voyage to Snusnlito, four leagues
distant, It was a marvelous boat, with
ours aud a sail, and capable of accommodating no less ih au six persons. Don
Luis Antonio Argue!Io himself had commanded her in person on the dozen passages which she had made to the opposite
short' for timber. Previous to the creation of this extraordinary ship, which annihilated distance and obliterated time,
timber was hard to get from Corte de
Madera. Soldiers were sent oroutid by
way of San Jose, armed with nxes. who
crossed the strait of Cnt'qutnCM on rafts,
and iu the circuit of seventy leagues encountered hardships and consumed weeks.
Aud the timber was brought over by
Chief Martin, an aborigine given to cruising on a float of logs and tuJes, who alone
knew tho winds and currents of tho bay.
It was but a matter of u day now to sail
over for the timber and return with it.
Corporal Pedro Sanchez had made all
the voyages with tho commaudauto and
rated now as a superior navigators his
marine fame being dear to him. Don
Luis had swollen him with pride by placing him In command for this one trip,
His enlargement became perilous when
Lieutenant Echenndin suddenly proposed
to Senorita Pnebttn that they make the
Voyage, and she, being young and
thougbttcwi, consented,
Bravo Corporal Sanchez sailed the
Mejii-u superbly as far ns Angel Island,

Tbe corporal Pedro, though a fool and
unfortunate, was loyal. With hira the
lieutenant kept watch and watch, and
through all those awful eight days and
nights (by my pen, it Is true that the
boat was gone that long, as you may read
in Hindi's "History of California") the
Senorita de Sola wanted for neither food
nor drink, ond the delicacy of Lieutenant
Juau would have brought tears of gratefulness to any woman's eyes. He did
wonders, as tradition has handed down,
with cloaks and coats and stray bits of
rope to cabin the lady.
On tbe eighth day—sincere prayer Is
ever answered—a blessed wind sprang up
from tbe west and, tide assisting, blew
the Mcjico back through tbe Golden
Gate. The cruising chief Marin, on bis

commandant and the cheering garrison

ones saved by an unquestionable miracle.
The padres bore the lesson home In many

As tbe Senorita de Sola rose In tba

weakness and agitation. Lieutenant Juau
stretched out an arm and preserved her
from a ducking. She gave a little
scream, not at th*; public embrace, but
because in throwing up ber small brown
bauds sbe had broken a slender gold
chain that hung about ber neck—broken
it, und over into the deep water it went,
together with a locket that had rested on
her virgin bosom.
"My dears," said Commandant Don
Luis Antonio Arguollo, when they had
refreshed themselves at his quarters and
related their adventures—"my dears, I
think that under all the circumstances
tho best thing you can do Is to get married, nnd at once."
"I'm with you," exclaimed Lieutenant
Juan de Kcheandia in Spanish, opening
his arms.
And Senorita Pachita de Sola crept
timidly into them, biding ber lovely,
blushing face upon his happy, weather
beaten breast.
Lieutenant John Anderson was restrained from throwing the abalone shell
into the bay, after bis indefensible language concerning it, because imbedded
under a transparent, overlying, iridescent
deposit ho beheld nn open golden locket,
showing the face of a handsome young
man, evidently Spanish.
Miss de Sola, excited, took It from him,
scrutinized it intently, looked up with
sparkling eyes und pointed a slim, triumphant, olive finger at a name beneath
the miniature.
"There," she cried, "grandma did lova
that Monterey ensign, though she always
denied it!"
"But Pachita—Pachita, darling, do
name the day," pleaded Lieutenant Anderson nil a-throb.
"Oh, bother!" Impatiently returned
Miss de Sola, absorbed again in the aba-
lone.   "Name it yourself."
Work of Blind Sculptors.
There have been several cases recorded
in which famous sculptors have been
blind. Dr. Vldnl, the well known French
sculptor, wns blind. He made a special
study of animals, surrounding himself
with pets of all kinds, which bo would
fondle until he was able to reproduce them m clay with a skill that surpassed any of bis contemporaries. On one
occasion, iu order that he might make a
true model of a lion, he obtained permission from the proprietor of a menagerie
to enter (accompanied by tbe tamer) a
cage containing a magnificent specimen
of the kiug of beasts, which be stroked
and caressed until he bad acquired nn
exact conception of its shape and mien.
Giovanni Gambasio, the sculptor, had
been deprived of his sight for ten years
before the idea came to blm to be ou
artist. His fame as a sculptor spreading
abroad, he was sent by the Grand Duke
of Tuscany to Borne to model the statue
of Pope Urban VIII. — Ladies' Home

A well known band was practically two

prevent their getting out n single sound,
the conductor had jammed a cork into
their instruments, or, rather, tbe Instruments they carried. So that they were

Perhaps I might not to toil this story,
for it redounds lule to the credit of man's
sex. However, it is a good story nil the
same, yo here it is:
The Chief events occurred at Mine.
Ttousselin's cmmtiy lion*-*', near La
nochcbillore, in a wild. dense."y wooded
country where hunting is i'ie nuMtSff-
ment of the inhabitants. The house is
one of the best I know, and Mute, ttoos-
sellu had added to its attractions ly takin r her young niece Madeleine, who had
just lost her parents, to live with her.
Madeleine had no fortune, but she was
divinely pretty. She had* those soft, mild
eyes that go straight to your heart, aud
the most eharuling and indesei ibali e air of
delicacy, refinement and tirfectlourfteiiess,
She was, indeed, by far loo lempting a
morsel to put under the very claws, yo to
speak, of that scoundrel Louis, Mine.
Itausseliu's sou, \\ ho had developed from
an incorrigible spoiled child Into a man of
rough manners and violent emotiuus, as
a result of his life iu the woods and his
constant association with lours. Although ho was far too stupid to appreciate Madeleine as she deserved, he wus yet
strongly attracted bj her beauty.
The girl's frank contempt and dislike
made him furious, and before long he became jealous as we!l. For. though Madeleine had no feeling but aver: i >-i for ber
blackguard of a cousin, she did not ox-
tend thut sentiment to men in general.
Certainly uot tu one man iu particular,
Edmund Kenuud.
Edmund was a handsome youth and
fully capable of appreciating Madeleine's
character as well as her beauty. So.
when he came home after completing his
legal studies in Paris, he fell in hive with
her at once. At church he never took his
eyes off her fine, and on weekdays he
hunted the vicinity of the ItoimseHu
house hi the hope of getting a stolen
glimpse of her beautiful features.. He
was very happy in ibis una vowed love,
the more so that 'Madeleine's conscious
look, blushes and air of embarrassment
plainly told him that his feeling wns returned.
He was emboldened to make a format
prrfposition of marriage. This wns
promptly rejected by Mine. Konsselin,
and Edmond's parents also had objections to offer ou account of Madeleine's
lack of fortune. Mine. Itoussclip gave
her niece's youth as the ground of her refusal, but In reality she was obeying tlie
suggestion of her son. whom Madeleine's
obvious attachment to his rival hud made
more furious than ever.
And now the story becomes dramatic.
Edmond remained iu the country during
half of the winter, his love only increased
by obstacles, until he was forced to choose
betwoeu two plans submitted to him by
his father. Ho must either return lo
Paris or accept a colonial post which was
offered to him. At aII events, he must
leave the spot, and forthwith,
Madeleine ou her return from church
one Sunday found a note in her mult.
There were only a few passionate Hue.-,
iu which Edmond assured her uf his love
and begged for a meeting iu which, she
could tell him-whether it was returned or
not. If sbe loved him, he would Wait for
her; if not, he would expatriate himself,
efface himself forever. But he must have
an answer, if only a word. He would
steal into her garden that evening, conceal himself behind the big snowman
which the gardener's sous had erected,
nnd there wait patiently for her—for
hours, if necessary. If she did uot come
at all, it would mean "no," and he would
He carried out bis programme, but the
snowman did not conceal him from the
sharp eyes of a servant, who reported the
matter to Louis Bousselin.
"Hiding, you say?" Louis asked.
"Yes, sir; behind the snowman, like bis
shadow, opposite tho house, which he is
watching ns If expect lug some one At
first I thought he was a thief, but on
coming nearer I recognized him. What
shall I do?'
"Nothing.   You may go,"
"Ah.   my  fine  fellow."   Louis  said   to
himself, "so you come and put yourself in
my hands, do you?"
Rousselin was on very good terms
with himself that evening. A successful-
hoar hunt and an excellent luncheon had
conspired to make him more animated
than usual. There wa* n wicked light ih
his eyes, the reflection of a diabolical
thought that had crossed his brain. He
went up stairs, musing. At the first landing he stopped nnd stood watching tlie
door of Madeleine's room. He suspected
that she knew who was hiding behind the
Assuming a careless air and whistling,
he approached a collection of weapons
hanging on the wall aud took down a gun.
He wns trying the lock when Madeleine
appeared. '
"Beastly weather for a walk, Madeleine." he said.
Madeleine stopped in confusion. After
a long conflict with herself her lender
compassion for Edmond, combined with
the fear of losing him forever, had decided her to go to the rendezvous, and now
she found herself confronted by her detested cousin.
"You bad hotter take a wrap, if you
must go," sneered Louis; "overshoes, too,
would not be amiss for a trump iu tbe

snow. It is too cold a night for lovers;
they would be chilled. You won't find
any, take iny word fur It."
Bousselin, who was getting a good deal
of enjoyment out of his cousin's embarrassment cud mortification, threw open n
window which overlooked the snowclad

and enjoying the look of terror tbat overspread Madeleine's fuce.
"Thnt fellow has been an eyesore too
long," he added. "I think I will put a
bullet through him. Bet yon I bit him in
the head at the first shot!"
"Louis, do nut shoot. I beg of you,"
Madeleine cried impulsively,
"Why not? Just for the fun of tbe
Poir Madeleine could scarcely speak
distil ctly iu her excitement and despair.
"T1..1 noise," she stammered. "The report—so late in the evening. It might
frighten some one."
"Whom? My mother Will not bear it,
and you ure forewarned. Are you afraid
of scaring the servants?"
"Please, Louis, I beseech you!"
"Bah! All this fuss about not even a
sparrow—only a snowman!"
"But if—if—-by chance—there should be
—some one"—
"Iu the garden, at this hour? A thief,
perhaps? All fche better. It will be kill-
lug two birds with one stone. However,
I can point a gun, I hope, and I intend to
hit  the suowmau  alone —right  in  tha
heart.   Here goes!'1
JShe sprang forward1 and grasped the
gun, excluintlng:
"No, tio; you shall not shoot!"
"Then there is some one there?"
""Your lover?"
"I—I do not "know," Madeleine retreated in confusion, dreadfully shamed by the
confession that had been wrung from her,
but thinking, iu her ignorance of the
workings of Roussefln's mind, that now
,a!! danger was passed.
Meanwhile Itousselin stood nervously
fingering his weapon, with his face distorted with rage, until nuother atrocious
thought came to hitn and made him laugh
"A fine arrangement, truly, and a pretty confession !'* he sneered. "Mademoiselle has lovers who come prowling
nbout my house nt night. Tbat is only
an additional reason why I should exercise my rights. If I should wing this
lover of yours, what complaint could he
make against me? Bnt, pshaw, it is only
a fancy of yours! There is nobody behind the snowman."
"There is."
Bousselin laughed no longer, and tbe
girl made no further attempt at concealment.
"Well," ho said, "I give- you your
"Either you Bwear to marry meM—
"Or I fire."
This brutal threat so shocked and overwhelmed Madeleine tbat she could find
no answer but a sob.
"Or I fire, I sny!"
"Oh!    Then—well—yes!"
Bousselin closed the window.
"Do not cry," he said. "We shall get
on well together, 1 have no doubt. It is
something, you must remember, to be
Mme. Bousselin."
Thnt great honor, however, won by so
painful a sacrifice, Madeleine was destined never to enjoy. Edmond, convinced
of her indifference and ignorant of the
facts in tho cose, left the country ou the
following day, and Bousselin, after enjoying several weeks of hateful triumph,
suddenly changed his iniud. His cupidity
was inflamed by the financial charms of
on heiress whom his mother hnd discovered, and he coolly left Madeleine to nurse
in secret her poor little aching heart—
lacerated cruelly, wantonly, uselessly.
It happens that way in love now and
then.—Translated From the French in

Immortal  Raphael.
Raphael, tho artist, was so conscientious in everything he did that he could
ffot be induced to do anything half way,
even for temporary use. His fatuous
"Sistlnc Madonna,'1 which has been the
admiration of the world and which the
great art critics have classed among the
few marvelous pictures in existence, was
painted for temporary use—for a banner
to be carried nt the hood of a procession.
Millions of dollars would not buy this
banner today, because Raphael put tho
hesl of genius into it: be put immortality
into ii, because he painted it just us well
ns he knew how, even though it was fur
temporary use.
And today In Borne, even in the corners or the Vaiican, high up on tho ceiling where no one is supposed to ever look
for ils existence, the traveler finds the
same exquisite touch, tho same perfection
of finish as In his great masterpieces.
Everything Raphael did he did for fin-
moitaliiy. Half done work cannot be
found ill any of his pictures. It would
take many millions of dollars to buy hi.-,
works today, not only because ho trans*
ferred his genius to tlie canvas in a masterly way, bet because the minutest detail is finished with the same exquisite
pains ns attended the chief figures.

A Story of Attn Lomnaklaa;
By Jobn H. Raftery.
It was some time lu Juno that Miss
Denby began to "make a show" of herself. From tbe modest responsibility of
neutral tints, cotton gowns and a sailor
bat she suddenly burgeoned forth Into
such a splendid radiance of millinery
and mode that all ber neighbors wondered. ( For Miss Denby was an old
maid. Sbe bad accumulated a modest
fortune making dresses, and, being
fifty-two years old, ns she admitted
with a weazen smile, she had retired
permanently from business nnd settled
down to a routlis of tea drinking and
novel reading, relieved, If not illuminated, by dally strolls In the park
and a Sunday visit to church.
Homely? Not exuelly, for she had
bright, busy little eyes, a straight nose
that had not always been as red as
now and n cute mouth that puckered
up at the corner when she smiled, tier
form wns of the "Ironing board" style
—that Is, neither plump nor angular—
but ber hands and feet were the chief
pride of ber romantic little heart, for
they were as small as a child's. Indeed, what most astounded the neighbors when they lirst began to "notice"
the old maid's transformation were the
marvelous shoes, slippers and gloves
she wore, For Instance, the day Mrs.
Gnllegher followed her over to the park
Miss Denby's little tootsies were Incased In gray undressed kids, with—oh,
shocking!—French heels. But that was
not what finally set the venomous
tongue of gossip to wagging.
Mrs. Gallegher had actually caugbt
the old maid keeping tryst with n
From that day the poor old dress-
maker's suddenly glorified wardrobe
was explained. Mrs. Gnllegher bail
watched her foregather with a hand'
some, dark haired stranger and, leaning on his stalwnrt arm, stroll away
among the trees. It was evident thai
Miss Denby was In love and tlmt her
suitor wns a young and dashing fellow.
"After her money, I guess," aald
Mrs. Jenkins to Mrs. Jones over tbe
back fence.
"No fool like nu old fool," winked
Mrs. Jones.
Some said It was "disgraceful," others suspected that Miss Denby was a
"little cracked," but they all became
very friendly with her, drank ber tea,
admired her gowns and put themselves
In the way of becoming her confidants,
The good women even began to tnko
morning tramps iu the park, nud tbo
queer little dressmaker, walking with
her young suitor, was mortified and
puzzled at the frequency of these accidental meetings.
Finally Miss Denby decided to open
her heart to Mrs. Gallegher, and she
did It like this:
"Have another cup of tea before
you go, Mrs. Gnllegher."
"Suro I've had seven."
"Just one more." Tben she whispered, "I've got a secret for you."
Miss Denby blushed aud simpered
demurely as she poured the tea. and
ber fat guest could hardly wait to
come at the long deferred mystery.
"What's your secret, Sophronln?
Sure you ain't going to inove?"
"Guess again," giggled tbe old maid.
"Not another new dress?"
"Not that"
"I'll give up," admitted tbe other,
who enjoyed the deception,
"A wedding!" gurgled, Miss Denby.
"But, mind now, It's a Bccrct yet. I'm
going to Invite blm up—bee-bee, bee-
bee-e—and I want you to come and
chaperon me"—
Mrs. Gallegher was staring open
"Sophronla Denby 1" sbe gasped.
"Married!   Vou going to be married!"
"To tbe finest, handsomest, noblest,
richest—he's a prince"—
"Ab, bother!"
"A Greek nobleman, Count Sardana-
"And what business Is be In?'
"Business! Ob, dear, none! He's a
nobleman; owns an Island and all tbnt

The old maid seemed almost transfigured with enthusiasm. Sbe said sbe
bad met ber noble lover quite by accident while strolling nenr tbe beacb.
De had found and restored to her a
novel which she bad left on a bencb.
Tbe casual acquaintance thus begun
bnd flourished by reason of bis wondrous ardor and the fact that she walked dally In tbe park. Tbe count bad
wooed and won ber "with tbe fierce
and swift gnllantry of the old world,"

A Story ot Tennyson.
Apropos of Tennyson's life nt Freshwater Mr. T. S. Escott tells this story,
says a London Journal: "The only
stranger 1 enn remember to hnve seen
there wns n young American nuthor,
already of distinguished performance
and of even more brilliant promise,
who had brought with him n letter of
commendntlon from Longfellow. Ho
wns painfully shy und absentmludcd
nt the dinner table, nearly forgetting
to cat nnd quite, I think, forgetting to
drink. In the latter respect he resembled his host, who on thnt day, while
the dishes were on the table, touched
ouly one of tbem.
"Wltb the dessert a small bottle of
the laureate's favorite port, unfortified
—such, be said, as 'Will Waterproof
once could get at the Cock In Fleet
street—made Its appearance. It wns
only sipped by the pact after Intervals
between conversation with his transatlantic guest or of reveries with himself. At last, however, the decanter
was drained. The poet, as If surprised
to find It empty, with a touch of plaln-
tlveness In his melodious monotone,
said reflectively to the visitor, who had
not touched the wine, 'Do you always
drink a bottle of port after dinner?'"
Tea and Thelne.
Thelne Is known to most people as
tbe active principle of tea or tbat substance which confers upon the cup Its
cheering and stimulating properties.
Caffeine Is the analogous principle of
coffee, although this latter substance
also occurs In tea. Some Investigations Into the development of thelne
shows tbat It Is In the skin or covering
of the leaves of the plnut In (heir
young state that Ibe active principle Is
best developed. I have always been
given to understand tbnt tbe young
shoots thus amply provided with
thelne nnd representing the finest of
the crop nre sent to Russia, where
they fetch a high price.
What we get In England Is presumably the older leaf, with, I should sny,
less thelne nnd a deal more tannin.
It would be Interesting to know what
proportions of thelne and tannin exist In some of the cheup tens thai are
eo largely consumed by Iho British
public, Thelne Itself Is n nerve stimulant of undoubted power, but lhe quantity we get in our cups is. of course, Infinitesimal. Sometimes, I should sny,
it is so microscopic in amount ns to
render it whether we can he

A pilous not covered witb excrescence*

sheathed by membrane. The distinguishing characteristics of tbe Amanita
phalloldes, or deadly agaric, are these:
Plleus destitute of distinct excrescences; white gills, h«*»ow stalk; large
ring nnd prominent nulb at base, with
membranous upper margin. Bearing

One Who Didn't Mind Her Own •}«■!-
dcm and One Who Did.
The old ladj was shrill of voice and
garrulous of nature, nnd she drew the attention of the other passengers in an elevated train to the young woman who was
Bitting beside her. 'The young woman
was accompanied by two small children.
The old woman grinned ingratiatingly
several times nt the children, who gave
her no encouragement. After awhile she
turned to the young woman and asked io
a voice that attracted the attention of
the other passengers:
"What nice little childrei! How old
are they, dear?"
Some quiet response by the little woman.
"What's thnt? I don't hear very well."
Tho young woman raised her voice as
she blushed because of the attention ot
the other pnsscugers;
"One is three years and the other to

"Thi ooy.'
"Well, welll How many months are
there between them?"
The young woman aeemed much annoy*
ed aod answered shortly:
"Indeed!   Are you their sister?"
By this time everybody In the car was
looking, and some pitied the young woman, whose face was (lushed at-the personal questions, but were obliged to smile
at (be persistency of the older one.
"Perhaps their cousin or their aunt?"
■he hazarded. "No? But you are not
their mother, are you?"
There came a decided nod from the little woman as she turned her face away
from her questioner.
"You are? Well, well! And how long
have you been married? You are only a
girl yourself; too young to lave two
such big children."
The train drew up at a station just
then, and the young woman gathered her
children together- aa she answered, with
a snap of her big brown eyes:
"I've been married long enough to be
able to attend to my own business. Have
you been married as long as that?" And
she swept out of tho car to wait on the
platform for another train that would
not contain such an unwelcome questioner.
"Well!" said the old woman as the
train started again. "I wonder what was
the matter with that girl. She seemed
put out."

Remedy—A most Convincing Confirmation of an Interesting Statement Published in the Plattsville
Echo in May,   l$9«
Plattsville, Out., Dec 16.—(Spec-
ial>—Some three and a half years
ago, tho Plattsville Echo, the local
newspaper, published quite nn extended account of a most miraculous
cure of a well known and highly re-
speolod lady, Mrs. J. Harnett, who
had i-ecn extremely ill for years, and
who claimed to be permanently cured by the use of Dodd's Kidney
Pills. This good lady, according to
her own statement, had been a physical wreck, with nervousness, rheumatism in the left arm, pains in the
small of tho back, up the Bplnal column and back of iho heatl, through
the eyes, left side of tho body and
occasionally the right side. She had
no appetite and could not sleep at
night. The physicians had given
her up, and in this* pitiful and hopeless Condition, Dodd's Kidney Pills
found her and completely, restored
her to good health without an ache
or pain. Her appetite returned as
her general gootL health improved.
She used in all but twelve boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This was in the spring of JR98,
nnd today Mrs. Barnett states positively and in the strongest and most
grateful terms that the cure Dodd's
Kidney Pills brought her threo and a
half years ago was absolute and permanent ; that she is today stronger
and better than she had been for
years before taking the pills. Nothing could be more convincing than
this good woman's plain and truthful statement, and it proves beyond
douht 1he lasting character of the
cures ejected by Dodd's Kidney Pills.

Need Watchful Care to Prevent Overfeeding and the Evils That
All children at some period of Uicii
infancy are subject to indigestion,
diarrhoea, or constipation. While the
symptoms of these troubles greatlj
differ, the origin of-each is due to thu
same cause—improper food or overfeeding. This results sometimes in
diarrhoea, sometimes in constipation. In either the treatment is to
remove the cause, and this can only
be speedily, safely and effectually
done by the use of Baby's Own Tablets, u purely vegetable medicine
guaranteed to contain no opiate nor
any of the poisonous stuffs found in
the so-called soothing medicines.
Mothers who oace use Baby's Own
Tablets for their little ones never after experiment with other medicines,
and always speak of them in the
highest terms. Mrs. Geo. It. Johnston, Wall street, Broekville, says :
"I have been using Baby's Own Tablets for over a year, always keep
them in the house ami always lind
them satisfactory. If my little boy-
two years of age—is troubled with
constipation, indigestion or diarrhoea, 1 give him the tablets and he
is soon relieved. The tablets regulate the bowels and do not cause after constipation us many medicines
do. I have also found them beneficial tn teething."
Baby's Own Tablets are a certain
euro for all the minor ailments of little ones such as colic, sour stomach,
constipation, indigestion, diarrhoea.
etc. Children take them readily, and
crushed or dissolved in water they
can be given with good results to the

Despite Medical Treatment, He Became Weaker and Weaker, Until
JJ-: Could Scarcely Sign His Name
Mr. James Dauphine-, of East
Bridgwater, or as he is better
known as ex-Councillor Dauphine,
lias been a sick man for the past
three years. His health gradually
forsook htm, until by degrees ho was
forced to give up doing all kinds of
work. He consulted a physician and
took a largo quantity of medicine,
but it did him no good and he gradually grew weaker and weaker. His
duties as a magistrate necessitated
his doing much writing, and being
an excellent panman in his days of
good health, il came very hard to
him when his hand shook so much
he could scarcely keep it steady
enough to sign lii.i name. His daughter, seeing his deplorable condition,
advised him to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Fills, and after a bit of coaxing ho was induced to try them.
There was no noticeable change in
his condition until ho had started
taking the third box. From that
on the improvement was rapid. Ho
grew stronger every day, his appetite increased, tho weariness and lassitude departed from his limbs,
some of the lustre of his youth returned to his eye, aud by the time
five boxes were used, Mr. Dauphine
felt a-new man. The weight of years
and tho burden of sickness have
rolled from his shoulders, his hands
are now steady and his pen can run
as rapidly as over. He attributes
his cure to the ministration of a
good wife and Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills* Mr. Dauphine is 73 years of
age, but feels as young and vigorous
as he did years ago. and is ever
ready to praise in the warmest
terms the health-giving qualities of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
friend of tho weak and ailing. They
surpass all other medicines in their
tonic, strengthening qualities, and
make weak and despondent people
bright, active and healthy. These
pills are sold by all dealers in medicine, or can be had by mail, postpaid, at 50 cents per box, or six
boxes for $2.50, by addressing the
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Itrock-
ville, Ont.

engaged tu a business meeting; held in
the directors' room of the bank, nnd ns
they believed themselves secure from intrusion they wore much surprised to eee
a poor little waif enter the room, something which any mttii of business affairs
would not dnre to da under such conditions. The little girl, shabbily clothed
and pinched looking, bad nil unconsciously entered un forbidden ground, but this
she didn't realize and tit once went to the
men seated about the big table, offering
them small calves c,f soap fur sale.
The first director whom she approach-
ed shook his head, impatient ut tlie interruption of business, and snid sharply, "I
never use it." The tiny peddler, unabashed, went from nian to man, all tha others,
out of pity for her wan little figure,^buying of her. As she started to leave the
room, after thnukiug each purchaser, the
girl hesitated a moment in front of the
director who never used soup, according
to his own declaration, and, loojtlng him
over from heatl to foot, snid disdainfully,
