It I* Bound to bo » Town of Growth and
Increasing Prosperity for Many
Marysville I* essentially a "dinner
pall," town, that I* a town of working
men, In fact at payroll town. During
th* short time that Marysville haa existed It haa forged ahead In a wav that
few western towna have. A month ago
there was no sign of * smelter, to-day
If one lookea acroa* thr amelter
ground* one I* abtolutely astonished at
the wonderful progress made, over
and above the work commented upon In
our last Issue. A Urge stable and
warehouse have been .completed. The
frame of the roasting building Is up,
the flume line Is almost finished and the
grading of the amelter si' e la completed.
The company's saw mill la laming out
lumber very fast and Is being run day
and night. Taking everything Into
consideration we can safely say tbat
tbe amelter Is not a matter of talk but
of actual work which any on* visiting
onr town can see for hlmaelf. A payroll town Is of necessity a good town.
Show us a town made op of wage workers
earning good wages and wa will show
you a bus) to»rn, a prosperous town, a
town that Is good to live In. Marysville
Is tbat kind of a town.
Investors like to put their money into
a pay roll town; business men prefer to
do business In a pay roll town and the
public generally, have confidence in a
pay roll town.
The one smelter now building I* by no
means all tbat Marysville will have to
drprnd on In the future. The time Is
not far off when there will l>: not one
but several smelters In our city, because
It is the natural smelter site of the district. Then again the magnificent and
wonderful water power at our doors
will no doubt attract other industries to
Marysville. We have power enough
here to drive all the machinery In East
Kootenay. Added to all this, tbe Great
miniog development, which has,and will
take place In the country trlbutory to
our ci'Y will contribute In a very large
measure to Its building up. Nothing
can stop Marysville! relng a prosperous,
busy and beautiful city.

Hon. Dr. Bowden has had conference*
with the representatives of tbe Elder
Dempster and Allan line in regard to a
tranapott for tbe mounted Infantry to
South Africa, but aa tbe minister of
militia haa not yet had any definite
reply as to what la to be done In the
tbl* matter he conld not do anything
with either. If the Brltlab government
leave tbe arrangement* for a steamer
wltb Dr. Bowden then he can tell to a
day when tbe troops will sail, but
otherwise he cannot. It la just possible
although scarcely probable that th*
Imperial authorities might send a

If not it Is about time tbat tbe war
office bad replied to tbe message of tbe
minister ot militia, otherwise there

"please excuse me. I thought you

He wns gone before 1 could ask nny
questions, and Mr. Bliss at once led
the conversation back to lhe property
nnd kept me so busy answering his
queries that I had no time to wonder
over the incident, lie remained for a
full hour. As he asked me to act as
his agent for the purchase of the property and as he paid tne £100 on account
1 was forced to be more or less Interested, though 1 could not get over feeling u bit put out at the way he had
entered my room. Before leaving ho
found that I was going down to Canterbury In the morning, aud he laughingly exclaimed:
"How very queer! Why, I'm going

make the Journey together."

Identity of the man who had remained
In the background. Mr. Bliss hud
seemed to talk straight enough, but I
wns considerably puzzled over him.
After a night's sleep I felt better, bow-

when Mr. Bliss Joined tne nt the station I gave hiiu cordial welcome. In a

Hot? Accidents Happen.
Mountain climbing is ft craft which has
a twofold object—the attainment of the
point which it is desired to reach aud the
avoidance of accident in so doing. The
first is gained by skill, the second by prudence ami experience. Accidents nre
caused either by things falling upon the
climber or by the climber himself falling.
When I sprak uf accidents, I mean
practically unavoidable misfortunes. More
than half the deaths that annually occur
on the Alps are caused by neglect of the
most rudimentary precautions and nre not
properly accidents. True Alpine accidents nre those which occur (n spite of
foresight ami precaution. They have always been few, and when the continually
incteasing number of climbers is reckoned
they may be said to decrease rather than
increase in frequency.
The things that by falling upon a clinih-
Ing party may produce fatal results are
rocks, ice and snow. All rock mountains
are falling to pieces—some faster than
others—under the alternate frost and
thaw. Water trickles into cracks on a
warm day. At night it frecr.es and in
freezing expands. It thus nets llku a
wedge to widen the cracks and tear rocks
asunder. Thus the whole face of most
rock mountains is cumbered witii loose
stones balanced on ledges to fall when the
least impulse is applied. One stone in
motion starts others and they in turn many
more. In this manner n whole rock face
may ho swept by myriads of falling rocks
of all shapes and sizes. Such falls are
fairly common on the east face of the
Matterhorn. That is why the route followed up it keeps ns close as possible to
the edge of tho face.

the stones falling down them. vIf a gully
is straight, stones generally fall down tho
middle of it, aud t he-sides may be climbed
in comparative safety. Some faces of
rock are less liable to be stone swept than
others. An experienced climber knows
the signs of danger. When there Is much
recently fallen snow on n rock face, stones
do'not fall so often as'when the snow is
all molted nwny. A good climber bears
ull these facts in mind and knows what
to look out for.
As with stones, so with Ice. It doei
not fall anywhere and anyhow.- It has
its hahitB, which may be learned by observation. Except in the lower part of a
glacier ice seldom appears on the surface.
People talk vaguely of ice when they
mean hard frozen snow. 'Where n glacier
deseends a very steep and uneven slope
it breaks up into great lumps of ice,
which are called seracs. Seracs often,
tumble, but seldom in tho early part of
the day. It is generally easy to perceive
whether a given seine is ready to fail or
whether it is firm. A well chosen route
avoids the track where the serac may bo
expected to fall. The crests of some narrow snow ridges are fringed with aa
overhanging wave of ice. called a cornice.
Cornices grow slowly by accretion of
.•nowllakcs. When they become too big,
they fall, and woe to the man on whom
they fall! The wise man docs not pass
under a great cornice.
Falling snow is called a snow nva-

his life in this way. He was crossing a
steep slope of snow in the afternoon, after it had been softened by hot stHlslltnO.
It cracked across, and tho whole surface
—a foot deep or so—slid down, carrying
his party with it. By good luck they escaped from the rear of the avalanche before reaching the edge of a cliff, over
which it fell. A prudent climber avoids
crotvSing rotten snow slopes that are steep.
Most accidents, however, are caused by
falls from rocks, ice or snow. Careful
climbers seldom fall from rucks. 'They
Jo not undertake ascents that are beyond
the skill of their party. If the guides are
good enough for the particular climb, two
uf them will render any tolerable climber
safe by proper use of tho rope. While
they are moving he keeps still. When
he moves, thoy remain firmly planted and
draw in the rope aa be advances. If he
slips, they easHy hold him.
A fail from Ice is less easy to check.
The dangerous places are steep slopes of
real ice—hard blue ice like tho surface of
a frozen pond set up at nn angle. Steps
cut in such material arc themselves quite
slippery. If a slope of this kind is very
long and takes perhaps hours to ascend,
tho time comes when carelessness in footing or balance may lead to n slip. If the
man ahead is immediately above the one
who slips, he cau hold him easily, but if
the ascent, ns is probable, is being made
diagonally, a slip is more difiicult to arrest, and the whole party will be iu great
From slopes or ridges of snow men are
not likely to fall unless they nre overthrown by a sudden blast of storm, as
has happened once or twice. Even then
a fall may he nrrostcd by using the ax
as a brake if the surface of the snow he
not too hard frozen. The chief danger on
snow Is'that you may fall through it into
a hidden crevnsse. It sometimes happens after a fresh fall of snow that a
crevasse is completely covered up so that
not a sign of it can be perceived even by
the most experienced eye. Against this
peril, however, there is one certain protection. It h the rope, lightly used. If

The r.esnlt of a Criticism  of LiCle
May'* Letter Writing,
Ono day the aunt for whom the fourteen-year-old was named and to whom
most of her letters were written surprised the fourtecn-year-old's mother by the
"Dear Edith," wrote the aunt, "I ara
much distressed over May's inability to
write an interesting letter. Why is it?
She has been corresponding with me
regularly for sonic years now, and there
Is really no excuse for a girl of fourteen
not writing a better letter. If this is the
best she cau do now, there's no hope for
her later on, I'm afraid. Her letters
are most uninteresting, nnd I'm both
surprised ami ashamed for her. Now,
don't go telling hor all this, of course.
That would never do. But just see If
you cannot contrive to let her know how
she fails to make her letters interesting
and then set abo'.it at once improving
thorn. Never by look or word let her
suspect that I criticised them. Hy the
way, Edith, denr, did you decide to get
tlu? blue foulurd or the- gray crepe de.
chine," etc.
Now, no sooner did "Edith, dear," read
this than she, of course, went straight to
the fourteen-year-old 'and gave it to her,
"right off the bat." as Charlie, thn nineteen-year-old son nr.d brother, would
probably have put it. The aunt's letter,
caution to keep silence and nil, was duly
read "at" the niece until she must have
been a very much more stupid girl than
she was not to realize tho lack of interest In Iier own letters to bring all this
A few weeks later tho mother received
a second letter from Aunt May, and at
its first words her hair rose. "In heaven's
name," began the letter, "what does this
mean about Charlie's marriage? May
writes me that he is nboat to marry that
dreadful blond that used to live on the
block bnck of you nnd who nfterwnrd
went on the stage and to whom I'm sure
you wouldn't allow nny of the childreu

Tho distraught mother rushed to th?
fourtoen-.yoar-old. "What possessed you
to write this awful, dreadful, disgraceful lie. to your Aunt May'/" she gasped.
"You know there's not a word of truth
in it.   Answer me—how dared you?"
The fourteen-year-old calmly took th*
letter, read It. returned it. "Do yon
think Aunt May will ever say again
that I can't write interesting letters?"

Through the elder Sothcru Billy Florence, the comedian, emtio to know the
Dnke of Beaufort, and they were excel-

York a good while. Florence enlivened
his stay l.y several jokes, which were the
talk of Hie town at the time, lie told
tlie duke thut he wns not looking well.
"Von reed violent exercise," said he.
"Now, 1 was troubled as you are. I used
to strip to my underclothing and, taking
:i heavy chnir in hy hands, would run
about my rooms, raising and lowering tho
chair a hundred times without stopping.
It had n grand effect."
Florence insisted upon this for seTcrtl
days and got the duke Into n mind for
trying it. One nftcrnoon when several
eminent persons were going to call on the
iluke Klorrnec persuaded him to try the
great remedy. The duke undressed, end,
seizing n groat chair, he elevated It nhove

room, iff was in a flue sweat, with his
eyes bulging, his face red nnd his velus

making strange noises and breaking the
luiniture. Come up nnd sec him. 1 think
he ought to be restrained. His family

The eminent nnd dignified personages
accompanied Florence nnd, peeping
through a crack In the door, saw an apparent maniac dashing round and round,
with staring eyes and Unshed face. -Then
Florence uhut the door nnd took them
away to tell what they had Keen, beginning, "It's very sad abcut his grace," until an impression was genernl thnt the
Dnke of Beaufort had gone mad. A few-
days later Florence hid the duke's clothing and poked his head in at the door
and said. "Hurry out; the hotel is afire!"

Gonipnrntlvely few people realize of
what remarkable speed dogs are capable. Some remarkable statistics In regard to this have been gathered by M.
Dusolier. n French scientist.
After pointing out the mnrvelous endurance shown by little fox terriers
who follow their masters patiently for
hours while tbe latter arc riding on bl-
eycleB or lu carriages, he says that evert
greater endurance Is shown by certain
wild animals tbat are akin to dogs.
Thus tbe wolf can run between 50
and (10 miles lu one night, nnd an arctic
fox can do quite as well, If not better.
Nausen met one of these foxes on the
Ice nt n polut more than 70 miles northwest of the Sanuikow territory, whlcU
Is 4SQ miles from the Asiatic coast. Eskimo and Siberian dogs can travel 45
miles on tbe Ice In five hours, aud thero

3f Kskiuio dogs traveled ti\U miles in

According to M. DusoIIer. the speffd

hi.tXtug i-angcs from 10 to 15 yards a
second. English Betters and pointer,*
hunt nt the rate of 18 to 19 miles an
hour, anil they can maintain this speed
for at-least two hours.
Foxhounds are extraordinarily swift,
is Is proved by tJje fact that a 0«g of
this breed once beat a thoroughbred
horse, covering four miles in *;& minutes, which was at the rate of nearly
18 yards a second.
(.reyhounds are the swiftest of all
four footed creatures, nnd their speed
may, be regarded as equal to that of
rarrler pigeons. English greyhounds.
which are carefully selected and which
art* i:s:ed for coui.-ilug, nre able to cover at full gallop a space between 18
and 23 yard a every second.
IIuw great an* achievement this Is
may be judged from the fact that 9
iltoroughbred horse rarely If ever ex-
.■eetlH 10 yards;. Moreover, It Is said
hat n hare at Ifirgreatest speed never
c.ies faster than at the rate of 18 yards.
These Interesting statistics are exciting much comment among sportsmen and other-lovers of dogs, and the
opinion is unanimous that M. DusoIIer
has fully proved the right of the greyhound to rank as the swiftest of the
quadrupeds. Express engines only surpass them.—Loudon Mali.

The Rich, Red Blood Made by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Gives New
Strength to Every Nerve, Fibre
and Organ of the Body.
From The Budget, Sheltrurne, NS.
Among tlie young ladies of Sliel-
burne, there is none today who more
fully bears tho impress of perfect
health than Miss Lilian Durfee. Unfortunately this was not always the
case, as a few years ago Miss Durfee became ill, and her friends feared
that she was going into decline. A
doctor was called in and prescribed
but bis medicines did not havo tho
desired effect. Her strength gradually loft her, her appetite failed, she
had frequent headaches, was very
pale, and finally grew so weak that
a walk of a few rods would completely fatigue her. Tho young
lady's family sorrowfully observed
tlmt she was steadily failing, and
feared thai consumption would claim
her as_a victim. One day a friend
urged "that she should give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial, but tho
idea at first was not favorably entertained ; it seemed hopeless lo expect that any medicine would help
her after tlie doctor's treatment had
failed. . However, this good friend
still urged, and finally prevailed.
By tlie time tlie third box was used,
there was an unmistakable improvement in Miss Durfee's condition.
Cheered by this, the pills were continued, anh in the course of a few
weeks the former invalid, whose
strength was taxed by the slightest
exertion, was almost restored to
health. Tho use of the pills was
still continued and a few weeks more
found Miss Durfee again enjoying
perlect health.
To a reporter who Interviewed her,
she said :—"I believe that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills saved my life, and
1 earnestly recommend Untie, to all
who fear that consumption lius laid
its grasp upon them."
That tho facts related above are
not in uny way exaggerated, is
borne out by the following slatemenc
from Robt. Q-. Irwin, Esq., tlie well
kaowu stipendiary magistrate for the
municipality, who says:—"I distinctly remember the pale face of Miss
Lillian Durfee and the regrets of
friends as they expressed their conviction that she would soon be compelled to say farewell to earth. Miss
Durfee, however, carries tlie unmistakable credentials of good health,
and frequently expresses her indebtedness to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

A Joke ma ft Professor.
Among some Intensely tuuus^jg college scrapes told by "A Graduate" In
The Ladies' Home Journal is the story
of a certain professor not much liked
by bis pupils who was to be married
Tlie lady lived In Cleveland. And the
students tbat loved (?) him were not
of course Invited. But they determined that In some way be should hear
from them. And he did. On the day
appointed the professor took tlie train
nt 10 a. m., due to arrive at Cleveland
at 12:30 p. m. About 11 o'clock Jim
Towuseud rushed to the telegraph office and sent off this dispatch:
"Chief of Police, Cleveland: Man

This message reached Its destination
long before train No. 0 reached Cleveland, so thnt when Professor 1'inalll
alighted It was to walk straight Into
the custody of three detectives. Tbey
would listen to no words of reason, but
escorted him out to the house ou Euclid

What to Do and What lTot to Do to
These. Little Hen and Women.
I have seen a good deal ia the paper*
recently about the training of children.
The fads in that line seem to be incrcus*
ing, but no two of these fads fadge.
There ia business common sense, and
there 1% professional common sense and
there Is social common sense, and I find
co reason why there should not be parental common sense. You cannot bring
up children with the strap or the slap.
I don't forget what Solomon snys about
tho rod. He is no authority, however,
except on the subject of vanities. There,
no doubt, he was at home; or, let us say,
had them at home, in the shape of 000
wives, straight and morganatic. Probably
there were a few offspring and more than
likely the "Original Mormon" maintained
a police force, with staves to keep the
family in order. "Spare the rod and
spoil the child" is in keeping with "Hew
Agag in pieces before the Lord." A
licking to a boy Is akin to capital punishment—it pretty nearly knocks all the
manhood life out of him. You must
treat children as human beings, and not
as pet animals, which often get kicks
and cuffs, as well as dainty food.
The first thing to be considered fs the
physical health of tho child. Don't swaddle Jt<needlessly. Kicking the ball for
tbe growing youth is, good, and kicking
the bedclothes is good for tbe infant.
Even if there are no bedclothes to kick
tbe air will do. Don't be in a hurry to
soothe it if It cries. Crying is exercise
and won't hurt it a bit. When it gets
older and can talk, help it with the names
of things. Don't carry it with ono arm
hanging over your shoulder. That arm
may be prevented from growing into
proper shape and so be shorter than tho
other or one shoulder may be higher than
the other. Let It lie and sprawl and
crawl. By nnd by when it is big enough
to understand things don't talk nonsense
to it, but sense. Tell it things, and then
make it tell you back. Put something
into the mind and thea draw it out again
with questions.
My advice is never to use threats to a
boy. It is mean, and it makes tho child
feel mean and by and by become mean.
Never say, "If you do so and so, I'll whip
you." If i'tio boy does wbat you havo
forbidden him to do and he expects a
whipping, when you ask him, "Did you
do so nnd so?" fearing punishment, he
will more than likely lie. Lying is tho
only defense a helpless child has iu such a
case. He can't square off nnd prepare to
make a fight of it, and so he lies. You
can't blame him. Use reason nnd affectionate counsel nnd not threats, nud if
he disobeys you love him nnd tell him
how unhappy 1k> hns rando you by his
disobedience. Don't let him be burdened
with books or he'll brenk down. See that
he is taught nud not crammed. From
"ths infnnt mewling and puking in the
aurse's arms" to tho "lean nml slippered
pantaloons, snus eyes, sans teeth, snns
tasle, snns everything," it is knowledge
which one enn use that is helpful.—

The Hair and] Salt Water.
"It puzzles me," said n hnirdresser at
one of the popular resorts, "why women
are so careless nbout their hair. I am
kept busy nil winter trying to get hair in
good condition that wns spoiled in the
summer. There in nothing thnt hurts the
loots of the hair ns sen bathing does, yet
mnny women bathe nearly every day for
a month of two, nnd seldom hnve (he
knir properly wnslied nfterwnrd, and
then they wonder why it falls out iu
winter, nnd hnve massage and tonics for
six months to make it healthy again.
"They often think, because only n part
of the hair gets wet, just under tho edge
of the cap, thnt there is no harm done,
but that is just where tbe harm comes.
It is at tbe roots that the water does
most damage"

Interviewed by the Representative of
the Echo—Story of Her Trouble
as Related by Herself—Her Opinion of Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Plattsville, Oat., Oct. 21.—(Special)—The case of Airs. J. Barnett of
this town was found of sufficient importance to be published at length >■
the Plattsville Echo. To the representative of that live local paper she
made tbe following statement concerning her experience with Dodd's
Kidney pills.
"J have been ail frig for years, but
in the spring of last year 1 grow
vi ry mueh worse. The symptoms of
my disease were nervousness, rheum-
tisin in the loft arm, pains in the
small of the back, Up thu spinal cul-
uimi and back of the head, through
the eyes, left side of the botty and
occasionally the right side.
"J grew weak, for i bud no appetite and night after night I could
not sleep. I was a physical wreck.
I was treated by doctors, but .their
medicines afforded mo no relief. I
chanced to read in Dodd's Almanac
of the virtue in Dodd's Kidney Pills
and the wonderful cures effected by
'The symptoms as therein explained corresponded with my own, and I
started taking Dodd's Kidney Pills
according to directions. Before 1
had finished one box there was a de-
eld d improvement in my condition.
My appetite returned, the pain was
lesEoned and I was able to ^l.vp. r
have taken in all twelve boxes and
have completely recovered. No sign
of my old trouble remains, and I ascribe it only to Dodd's Kidney I'j'lls.

Some time iu his life every Author, no
matter how BUCCCsful he may be in lic-
tion, determines to write a play, and
this without a clear understanding of
the difference between the dramatic and
other forms of compositoin. So few, indeed, are those who have mastered lhe
teehn'ipie of both U)C novel nnd the play
that they can be counted upon your
thumbs, says Manuscript.
Charles Ueade, whom Swinburne calls
the greatest of English novelists nnd
whose "The Cloister and the Hearth" ii
agreed by all to be the ideal of the historical novel, always plumed himself on his
ability to write a play. Certainly he had
the dramatic sense, ns the stories of Ida
which have been dramatized prove, hut
he lacked the training in dramatic technique. Aud, worst "f all. he was totally
blind to his defh lencj*. He made over a
good French play into a poor Eugllsh
one and wrote to a friend thnt In* hail
achieved the dearest wish of bis life.
In the composition of u play the first
essential is "the construction of a "scenario." the framework ol the fabric. With
this done, the play is fully embodied in
the mind of the practical playwright..
The rest in but upholstering—"leather
ami prunella." The younger Dumas was
once asked bow he was getting ou with a
play thai he had on the stocks and answered: "Nearly through. All done but
the dialogue."
The fault of the "closet dramatist."
whose plays read better than they net, i.;
nearly always too much attention to literary style and too little to stage effect.
He thinks too much of word painting, a
necessity in the days of the bare E.tza-
bcthnu stage, but now rendered obsolete
by the calcium and other modern effects.
Tlie frame of the dramatic edifice nowadays is everythinj. The paint can be
squirted on with a hose.
The novelist who will write a play
should therefore engage the services of
a professional playwright eitl.*r as a collaborator or critic nnd reviser. Ev< u
then, if he dees nut produce a popular
play, be will have received hints concerning the attainment of dramatic effects
which will be of Invaluable service to him
In nub'srqurnt work in his own Held of
