Naming Mining Claims.
What a peculiar and betrogeneons
man of anpboneons names, and a world
of history, both national and domestic,
tbat go to make up the title of a large
majority of tha mining properties. The
sweetheart Irtt In the eaatern atates
finds her name perpetuated by a large
producer of the precious gold. A dear
old mother'a maiden name la not forgotten, Neither la the old village, the
aiater, tha pet dog or cat, the little
pony that carried the prospector in his
childhood days. Incidents of tbe day,
especially those of a local nature,
largely enter into names for the locater
to designate hla new discovery. The
Never Sweat waa named after a man
who never worked and therefore,
"never sweat." "Wake Up Bill," the
prominent Butta mine is another. Bill
and his companion were camped on the
hillside juat north of Butte. They had
prospected the ground the day before
aad the companion awoke early and
continued his search, and on being successful arouaed old Bill with the wards,
"Wake np, BUI. I have found it." So
tbla Is the way this famous copper mine
waa named. Hundreds of others found
their names under somewhat similar
A good story of tbe naming of the
"H jly Terror" mine of Keystone, S D.,
that has seldom ever found its way into
print comes from an old friend of the
discoverer's wife who used to enjoy
telling it to her intimate friends. Old
man Franklin, as he was familiarly
known, *as especially favored by fortune and had made several good sized
1 raises" before the discovery of tbe
Holy Terror, and Mrs. Franklin, now
also dead, waa one of the rough frontier
but whole-souled good hearted women
often met with 1. the early days, who
could handle a brace of six shooters and
call down a rough character as readily
as many men One day she succeeded
in gaining a reluctant promise from her
husband to accede to her wishes and
name a good mine after her, wining up
her argument with the remark that he
had named claims for dogs and cats and
everybody else he knew, and it was
time he named one after ber. Soon he
approached her with papers, pen and
ink, with tbe statement that he had
found the mine of mines, and he was
happy to grant ber wish, and that the
papers were ready to sign and be recorded. After singing tbe papers she
glanced over the title and anggested
that there had been some mistake, that
tbis waa not the claim he meant to have
ber algn, whereupon he replied that It
certainly was. "No, It la not, this Is
named the Holy Terror." This brought
forth tbe good natured retort that "if
yon are not a holy terror there never
waa one."—Western Mining World.

Many Papers Comment on
Marysville's Progress.
And In This  Way the Town of Marysville   and   the   District Is
Spread   Abroad.
Marveloua Marysville Is perhaps tbe
only town In South East Kootenay that
baa started In with an absolute certainty of success. Many other towns
In the district have started In, and hare
been success on a blsls that did not
compare for one moment with the
future In sight for Marysville.
Towns have started on the strength
of prospects and of undeveloped mines;
on the strength of railway communication ; on the atrengtb of a hundred
and one things, tbat did not at
the time exlat, bnt Marysville is,
the only town in the district tbat started in on a "dead sure thing."
Before the townslte agenta of Marysville offered a single lot to the public,
for aale, they were aware of the fact
that a smelter was to be built, established and operated at this point; they
were aware that Marysville beld the
key to the situation of the upper St,
Marya country, they weie aware that
every pound of ore that was produced
In the St. Marys country would have to
be marketed via Marysville whether it
was aent to the Maryaville smelter for
treatment or ahlpped to other points.
On this ground they bave taken their
atand which has been borne out by the
wonderful growth of the town since the
lots have been put on the market.
Ouly a few ahort weeks ago what Is
now the thriving, business doing town
of Marysville was but a wilderness
bounded by the St. Marys river and
Mark Creek. Tc-day it Is a hive of Industry supporting a number of stores
and business bouses, professional men
and others. In a very short time we
shall hare a town that will be second
to none In the district.
The reason of the present development aud the future prosperity of this
town is not hard to find out. Marysville and the district have been more
thoroughly advertised than any other
town and district In the country. One
haa only to glance over the dally and
weekly newspapers of the North Western States and Canada to know that
this Is a fact. Such dalles as the San
Franclseo Call, Minneapolis Tribune,
Boston, Transcript, Spokesman-Review,
Post Intelllgenc-r, Oregonlan, Western
Mining World, Anaconda Standard,
Sioux City Tribune, Vancouver World
and Province, Victoria C-louisr, Rossland Miner, Nelson Tribune and Miner,
Winnipeg Free Press aud Tribune, Toronto G'obe, Mail and Enpire and World,
Montreal Star and Herald, Ottawa Oi tt-
zen,Hamil.enSpectator and nearly every
weekly paper lo British Columbia and
Washington have copied articles origin*
a ly published in the Marysville Tribune
All these articles were written on the
ground where everything that was in
progress could be seen and wben circulated, as they have been, by the
various newspapers mentioned tbey
cannot have failed to have proclaimed
to tbe world that Marysville waa a
place where capital could be Invested
at a profit.
The work of advertising the advantages of Marysville and the district In
general will still go on and even at tha
risk of what might be called "blowing
our own horn" we will say tbat the
Marysville Tribune has done and is
doing and will continue to do tbe work
of advertising tbe known resources and
the latest possibilities of this wonderful district.
How R. O. Jennings and Gus Thles
Lot   One   Get   Away.
R. O. Jennings and Gust Thies bave
been placer mining on Perry creek the
past few months. Their camp is about
six miles above Old Town, and they
have been living alone in their cabin.
One day last week they heard their dog
crying in agony and alarm. Mr. Jennings rushed out to the brush and found
the animal in the embrace of an immense mountain lion. Jennings called
to Thies to bring tbe axe, and in the
meantime, having nothing else lo use,
he threw bis mils at tbe animal. Without letting go of his victim the lion spit
like a tomcat at this mode of attack,
and finally let the dog go and slunk
slowly into the woods. Thies hurried
out with a 22 rifle they had in camp to
shoot at mountain rats. Not thinking
of the ferocity of the Hon or the danger
he incurred, Thies chased after him and
succeeded in hitting him once in the
flank. The bullet had no effect except
to cause the lion to turn and spit at him.
Suddenly it dawned upon Thies that he
was chasing a half starved lion alone into the bush with nothing but a plaything of a rifle for protection. Thinking
then that discretion was the better part
of valor, he relinquished the chase and
sought in hurried flight the safety of
companionship at the camp.
"I hated to lose the fellow," aaid Mr.
Thies. "as it waa the largest one I ever
saw But I could do nothing with a
small rifle, and so had to let him go "
Fort Steele News.
From the Prospector-
Messrs. Forsyth and Rae, who have
been working ou the Stanley, returned
to Steele on Tuesday. Mr, Forsyth reports tbat 370 feet of tunnels and upraises have been run on the property.
Two leads traverse the claims, the galena lead on the Stanley has eighteen
inches of high grade galena and carbonate s;the copper ledge ou the Golden
Fleece is five feet wide with ten inches
of solid copper on the foot wall witb
copper in a coucentrating form shot
through the balance of the ledge.
From what can be learned there is not
so much snow in the mountains as is
usual at this season of the year, and it
is predicted tbat the mining season will
commence much earlier this year than
last. If this is so we may look for great
progress being made in the mineral de-
velopment of the mines ol the district.
In fact a number ol mines ou Tracy
creek have worked all winter.

Trouble Among the Troops
Tbe members of the Canadian contingent in South Africa are kicking over
the new order that is breaking up the
companies and separating the men. The
cause of the trouble is aliened to be the
glaring incompetency of tbe captain in
command, or at least that is the reason
given at headquarters. But the men are
the sufferers, as their action, though
natural, is considered mutinous. The
military authorities have broken laith
with the Canadiaus in several instances.
Ihey promised that the Canadians were
to be kept together, and to be officered
by Canadians. Tbey bave broken faith
with regard to pay, and also regarding
the purchase of discharges, refusing the
Canadians tbe privilege. The first aud
second Canadian contingeuts and Strath-
cona Horse did such brilliant work there
that they have aroused jealousy among
the British officers.
"The result is that the Canadian contingent of the South Alricau constabu-
lory is getting the worst of the deal in
every instance. It is rumored lhat Colonel Steele has tendered his resignuion
unless put in charge of Canadians. Up
to the present not a single Canadian
troop has Ueen put into hla division, although he was promised, so it is generally understood, that all.Canadiiins were
to be in his charge. The feeling among
troops is running high, and the results
may be serious.

Is trump.
If you are particularly anxious that
people should not know what you have
to sell, do not advertise In the Tribune
because they read It.
Every business man Is looking for a
chance to enlarge bis opportunities but
he must consider that every Individual
Is also watching for the same chance.
Tbat business man best protects his own
Interest and who moat carefully
watches out for the Interests of others
will most surely win In the end. If he
is anxious to secure for his customers
the best values and present them in the
most attractive manner and to convince
tbe greatest number of people of the
value of what he has to offer, he will
eventually succeed in the largest mea-'
sure because he haa attempted to benefit others while benefiting himself.
Prosperity follows In the wake of

There Is only onr* sure Way of disposing of your goods; tbat one way Is
by advertising them.

You cannot make a prosperous season
by sitting back In a dark corner and
complaining of the prospects. It takes
both energy and effort tc gain the sue-'

There Is no prosperity possible without Intel.Igent advertising. The mad
who knows how to make prosperity bf
pushing to a definite end, for the sake
of that prosperity will seldom be disappointed.
If i m-rchant realizes the great
value to be obtained from advertising
he will not go about it In any half-hearted manner. It should be his plan to be
so persistent, energetic and enthusiastic
that he will be able to convince himself by the results of his effort that the
study he haa given the matter was we'll
worth while.

The sun had stink behind Ben Nevis'
towering triple peak, nml the mountain
cast a deep shadow over thi* ensile of In

A merry group of highland lads ind

with joyous steps tlie uiu7.es of the ilanro,
to the Inspiring nutes of the shrill bagpipe.
All wns mirth and glee, when nn untoward accident disturbed the harmony of
the scene. A bund of hlgblnudei'S descended tbe mountain pass, driving before
them a herd of cattle, A bull, shaggy
nnd untamed, broke front the herd and
with u ferocious bellow dashed toward
the circle of dancers.
With shrill cries they broke up their
sport and fled iu nil directions. Tbe infuriated animal singled out one fail- girl,
probably attracted by her scarf, tlie prevailing color of which was red, and closely pursued her.
Though fear lent her wings, the mad
beast gained upon her. He was close at

when a tall Highlander sprang before the
flying girl, grasped the bull by the horns
and, with n dexterous movement, hurled
the huge animal upon its back. Nre It

young hlgblnnder, who found it impossible to withdraw his gaze from thnt winning face,
"Are you a Cameron of the Clan Loch*
lei?" be asked eagerly and with interest.
"Not she!" broke tn one of the men of
Inverlochy, who wore lhe badge of an
under chief. "She is a Campbell, and wt
call her Annie of Lochlel because she was
born by yonder water. Her mother was
a McLean; she died when Annie was on
infant. Her father was Duncan Campbell, laird of Morven, ami he was slain
by the Cordons of Huntley iu the raid of
Gurioeh. There's her history in a nutshell. I thnt tell it to you am Malcolm
Mncl'hie, captain of Inverlochy, aud now,
my braw gillie, who are you?"
The high lander reared his tall form
with haughty pride us he replied:
"I am Alas ter Mac-Donald, son of Coll"
of-the-left-hand, chieftain of Mingarry
and Kintyre."
A buzz went around the circle at thest
words. The MncIJonalds were a bold
and warlike clan, and Coll-of-the-left-
baud was uot unknown to fame.
"I have beard of the chieftain of Kin-
tyro," returned .Malcolm MacPhie, "but
why do they call him 'of the Inft hand?' "
"Faith, I know not," answered Alaster
carelessly, "unless it be that be can wield
bis claymore as well with the left hand
as with the right."
A murmur of admiration greeted this
announcement. .Strength of limb and
iklll in arms were considered greoi virtues
In those wurlike days.
"Come, Alaster," cried Malcolm, his
heart won by the bold bearing of tlw
young high lander. "Thou bust preserved
OUr fairest maiden from n cruel death.
Hide with me in Inverlochy for a few
days and taste tbe hospitality of our ancient ensile."—
"There is ua fend between our chins,"
returned Alaster, "and 1 accept your offer."
They entered the cnstle together.
Malcolm kffloPhle bad muse to me tbt
hospitality which bad induced him to in-
rite tho young highland chieftain to en-
t**»r »he w*\Us of Castle Invcrlochv. It
soon became nppureut to others besides
himself that the bold Alaster hud found
favor in the eyeB of pretty Annie of Lochlel. A strong affection seemed to have
arisen at the first meeting of this young
pair, an affection which thoir eyes were
not slow to confess and which' wus revealed in eloquent glances.
Malcolm hnd detected moro than one of
these glances os he dispensed the hospitality of the castle, and he resolved in his
own mind that Alaster should not bide
long at Inverlochy. He prevented all
chances of conversation between them
until it was time for Annie to retire for
the night. He then invited Alaster to
walk with him upon the battlements and
pointed out the strength of the castle.
A taper gleamed from a low turreUd

window that looked out upon tne parapet.
""Who occupies yon chamber?" asked
"Annie of Lochiel," replied Malcolm.
"A winsome lassie," responded Alaster
warmly. "I would I could persuade her
to go with me into the laud of Kintyre
and become the mistress of Castle Mingarry. It would glad tbe heart of Coll-
of-the-!t'ft-hand to welcome so fair a
"That can never be," returned Malcolm
quickly, witb an angry flush. "Annie is
the ward of Sir Donald Campbell of Au-
chfnbreck, my chief ond kinsman. Seek
another bride, Alaster MacDonald, for
Annie is to be my wife."
Alaster's eyes were fixed upon tbe little
window as he listened to these words, and
be saw a fair face appear there. An energetic shake of the head said very plainly, "No, no!" to Malcolm's assertion, and
the fair vision disappeared,
"I wish you joy," replied Alaster, with
a quiet smile. "Happy will be the man
who calls the lovely Annie his,"
A white bnnd was waved for an moment from the casement and quickly
withdrawn. Alaster wns understood nnd
answered. Mal*olm was totally unconscious of this novel courtship.
"A rare place this for au escalade,"
said Alaster, leaning over the parapet and
pointing to a spur of Ben Nevis that
reared its craggy head almost on a level
with the battlements.
"For n goat, yes," answered Malcolm
disdainfully. "Xo buman being could
stale yon cliff. Look al the distance. It
is twelve feet from the battlement, with
ft yawning abyss between. An enemy will
never enter Inverlochy from that quarter."
"A lover might scale yonder cliff to
spenk with bis sweetheart." returned AI-
ns-.a-r carelessly, "and be would think
lightly of the danger for tbe boon of one
sweet smile."
"And break bis nock for his pains,"
answered Malcolm with n laugh. "Come,
the night is nearly spent, and you nre
welcome to a share of a soldier's eouoh."
They left tbe battlements without further words aud descended to Malcolm's
In the morning early Alaster departed,
for he had no excuse to prolong his stay,
and Malcolm MacPble drew a long breath
of satisfaction when he saw the stalwart
form of lhe young highbinder disappear
up the glen.
That night when the moon veiled her
silvery face behind the towering head of
old Ben Nevis Annie of Lochiel wandered
pensively upon the battlements of Inverlochy, gazing ever nnd anon upon tho
craggy plntform that jutted out from the
mountain's side.
A tall form emerged from the shadows
and advanced to the edge of the cliff.
"Alaster?" whispered the maid in cao-
tious tones, bending over the parapet.
"I am not a goat," answered Alaster
with a gleesome laugh, "but it is even I,
Alaster, fair Annie."
"How bravo you are!" cried the mnid
involuntarily. "Vou have undergone this
danger to see me once ngnin?"
"Vou know right well what brings me
here. Annie, I love you. Short as our
acquaintance hns been, you have enslaved
my heart. I have scant time for wooing.
My presence here may be discovered it
any moment. If you bide in Inverlochy,
it will he to become the wife of Malcolm
MacPhie. Fly with me to the laud of
Kintyre and share a chieftain's borne."
"Alaster, I would willingly Hy with
tine to escape the dreaded fate theft
awaits me here, but how can I escape?
Malcolm MacPhie has watched me closely all the day"—
"Aye, and he watches thee now!" cried
Malcolm, suddenly emerging upon the
battlement. Tickle jade! Didst think to
outwit me?"
Annie uttered a faint shriek of despair.
"Leap. Annie, leap!" cried Alaster in
sharp, ringing tones. "The space is narrow— spring boldly from the parapet—
thy lover's arms await thee!"
Scarcely conscious what she did--Im
polled by desperation nud that instinctive
feeling of obedience which true love
prompts—Annie avoided lhe grasp of the
exasperated Malcolm, ran a few steps
upon the parapet nnd leaped boldly
across the yawning void. Malcolm paused aghast. He expected in hear her death
shriek and the dull sound of her form ns
it struck the rocks beneath. But he heard
ouly o cry of joy and saw Annie twining
her anus around Alaster's neck, while
his clasped her in safely to his breast.
To this day the curious traveler who
visits the old gray ruins of Inverlochy is
shown the spot from which Annie sprang,
and that part of the battlement still bears
the name of the "Maiden's Leap."
Alaster and Annie disappeared In the
gloom, nnd Malcolm hastened to alarm
the castle and urge a hot pursuit. But
who could follow the bold blghlonder as
he leaped lightly from ciag to crag, bearing his precious burden iu hla arms?
Pursuit was unavailing; the fugitives
could not be found, and Malcolm MacPhie returned sullenly to Inverlochy,
swearing a deep nnd bloody vengeance.*

Old Tim* Toronto Host Who Thought AU
Opposing I'-alHU-lium  Scoundrel*.
Between forty and fifty years ago
there lived in Toronto, ut the corner
of Queen and Church streets, a fani-
uu<. doctor — George Herrick, whose
portrait graces the staircase of the
Toronto Club. Dr. Herrick, tbo godfather of George Herrick Duggan,
thu yachtsman, has left no rolationy
in Canada. He lived und died a
bachelor, coining from Ireland in
early manhood, and returning to that
country before- his death, which oc-
currud over '20 years ago. He used
to boast tbat he had brought into
the world the greater number of the
young people whom he met and greeted in the street. To say that Dr,
Herrick was old fashioned and of old
world courtliness hardly describes
him us he was, for he dressed in the
plulncst of clothes and affected no
special social position in Toronto.
Vet. he possessed tbe influence that
attached to a man who wus on tho
closest terms of intimacy with ull
who were then political leaders in
Canada West. Uf sterling honesty,
probity and integrity, he evinced a
singular disregard of money-making.
If he had enough for his uvery-duy
wants, it was all he needed, and be
preferred giving to receiving. Hid
everyday wants included a frugal
dinner ut 0 o'clock, shared with
soino six or eight guests, wbo were
surely not there foi what they would
get, hut for tho enjoyment of each
other's company. The Ope tin' contributed a plain joint of mcuL and a
dish of potatoes. The late George
Perkins occupied the foot of the
tuble, and providing sherry at dinner and rye whiskey afterwards. This
was always taken in the shape of hot
grog, for the Doctor said he had his
suspicions of folks who would drink
cold whiskey nnd water. At or before nino, tho Doctor—-literally—turned out his guests into the street and
went to bed.
Among tho Toronto frequenters ol
the Doctor's table were: Hon. II. H.
Killnly, the brothers Alexander and
Thomas Gait, tbo brothers William
and John Cayley, tho brothers Jo-
s-apb and Angus Morrison, the brothers John and Stephen Heward, the
brothers George and John Duggan,
tbo brothers Edward and Augustus
Nanton, Georgo D'Arcy Boulton,
Captain William Prince, Mr. Lewis
Orde, G. h. Madison, W. W. Kan-
some, E, Eradburne, G. W. Des
Vueux, and some others. Occasional
guests were Sir John Macdonald, Sir
C. S. Gzowski, Sir D. L. Macpher-
son and other Conservative politicians.
The Doctor was a furious Tory,
and considered everybody on the other side of politics a perfect scoundrel. At his house cabinets were
made and unmade,.and tho oligarchy
by whom things political were then
controlled all drew their inspiration
from the simple dinner parties of the
Doctor. Ostracism from the Doctor'a
table meant political ruin. Nobody
ever wetit without being asked, and
nobody was asked except by the sign
of the Doctor's thumb inverted over
his left .-vhoulder as he hobbled down
King street and met his friends. He
knew how many he hud fiSkud uud
novor crowded his table, out the dinner party occurred every night ©f the
Good stories were told and tho
day's gossip waa circulated, but never an improper word was uttered.
The telling of a doubtful story would
be followed by a dead silence, und
the offender never forgot his delin-
i;i.ei)iy. If disputes occurred the Doctor always intervened judicially and
decided the matter oft, his arbitrament never being questioned, no
mutter who were the disputants. He
wns a typical Irishman, with a heart
too big for his purse, and if one were
to say he wouldn't hurt a fly, that
would be wrong, for he carried a
horse-hair scourge for these pests,

out of tbo windows. Tho presence of
ono in the room acted on him like a
rod rag on a bull. The Doctor's red

Tlie victory of Chrysler's Farm on
Nov. 11, 1813, raises tho fame of
Col. Joseph Morrison second only
to that of Brock in the annals of
tha war of 1812. Tho battle waB
fought against superior numbers and
ended in the unequivocal retreat of
the Americans. Previously Col.
Morrison had risen step by stop in
the army, serving in Holland, the
Mediterranean and tho West Indies.
For Chrysler's Farm he received a
medal, a vote of thanks from the
Parliament of Lower Canada, and a
sword of honor from the merchants
of Liverpool. At Lundy's Lane,
less than a your later, ho was
wounded so severely as to be incapacitated from active service until
1821, when ho was sent to India
and engaged In the active campaigns
of 1823 and 1824. In the latter
year he was gazetted Brigadier-General. The climate and the rigors of
un Indian war, however, proved too
much for a constitution already undermined by wounds and the hardships of soldiering. He died on
shipboard In 182(i while on his return to England in tho hope of regaining his lost  health.

curled up in a chair near one of the
pillars is calling attention to the
beauty of the sunset. As his enunciation is a little emotional, and as
he is gazing due east at the reflection of an electric lamp on a red
roof, I infer thnt he, at all events,
haa been spending money "for the
good ot the house" But there Is
very little of that kind of thing to

'How do you do it?' I will suy that
it is as much of a mystery to me ns

ho can bring harmonies out of tho

charm the world with them.

I have thought in numbers, as the
poet is said to 'lisp in rhyme,' and
whereas I hnve never had very much

Borrowing; Habits of Poets.
On Tennyson's habit of falling to
recognize clearly his own borrowings
from the classical poets, Mr. Lang observes that the poets have always had
a kind of regal Indifference to their
own lighter productions. Mr. Lang
says: "Scott did not care; no, not when
he found that he had unwittingly taken
a line from a poem by the valet of a
friend. Iu the preface to a little collection of verses from the novels he
frankly declares that he cannot pretend
to bo certain which nre of Ills own composition nnd which are not,
"To tako an example from the level
at the foot of Pnrnnssus, I once rend,
in nu American paper, some Hues attributed to Mr. Austin Dohson. 'Not
bad for Dobson,' I said freely to a
friend. But It was proved on me thnt
the rhymes were my ownl A bard who
forgets bis own verses may be pardoned for remembering those of other
people uud mistaking a half line of
somebody else's for bis own. 1 dare
say tbnt Tennyson did this occasionally, but he could bnrdly say that 'the
sun sets' without being accused ot unconscious borrowing."
Creek and Roman stoTes.
Warm as Greece and Rome and
Egypt are, stoves were made there In
tb* dim and misty vistas of the past.
It was not just the pattern used at
present, but was a metal basin In
wtaleb charcoal was burned. It snt In
the middle of tbe room, and aa tbe resulting smoke was of tbe slightest no
opening in tbe roof or elsewbere was
necessary. Tho same Implement, still
called by Us old Greek name of braider, Is now employed in many portions
of continental Europe, where It Is utilised for beating as well as cooking.
But the progressive Romans Improved on tbat and made a hypocaust.
It wns the germ of the present furnace. It was msdo under the bouse In
a little cellar prepared for It, and the
heat was conducted to the rooms nnd
baths through crevices left In the floor
nnd lower portions of the wall. Later
flues were provided, conducting bent
to any portion of the house. In Borne
of tbe old Roman villus In England tbe
remains of these old time furnaces are
still found.
Origin of tlie Clearing; House.
In 1775 the bonkers of London rented
a bouse In Lombard street aud lilted It
with tables snd desks for the use of
their clerks as a place whore bills,
notes, drafts and otber commercial paper might be exchanged without the
trouble of personal visits of employees
to all the metropolitan banks. Trans*
fer tickets were used, and by menns of
this simple plan transactions Involving
many millions were settled without a
penny changing hands. The Bank of
England and every other Importnnt
bonk In London are members of the
Clearing House association. The first
clearing bouse In the United Suites
•fas established by the associated
banks of New York in 1S33.
Tlie Mistake of tho Polar Bear.
Nordeuskjold found that the white
bears generally went through a long
performance of stalking bis sailors,
clearly on the mistaken conclusion that
they were seals. As tbe men were
clothed partly In sealskin, It was a very
natural mistake. But the Interest of
tbe story lies In the generalization
made by tbe bear.  The bear said:
"Tbere -are two or three seala, one
standing up on Its flippers In a very
unusual way. I will therefore stalk
them unseen as long as I can and
when they see me pretend to be doing
something else."
So the men, wltb their guns and
lances, who wanted to shoot tbe bear
bad the plensure of seeing blm carefully crawling behind rocks and Ice bum-
mocks, making long detours this way
and that and every now and then
clambering up a rock and peeping cautiously over to see If the seals had
gone. On tbe open snow tha bear
would saunter off In another direction
aud then, falling flat, push himself
along on his belly, wltb his great front
paws covering his blnck muzzle, the
only thing not matching tbe snow
about him. Just as the bear thought
he had got his "seal" the latter fired
and shot him, a victim of false analogy.

No Epidemic in the Last Quarter of

Many People as Annually Fall
Victims to Consumption.
L'Avealr du Nord, St. Jerome, Que.
Throughout Canada much alarm
hus been felt during thu past few
I months at the outbreak of smallpox
thm has Occurred In various localities, and thousands of dollars have
; been expended—und rightly so-ln sup-
1 pressing it. And yet year in and

I nually thun have been carried off by
any epidemic during tho past quar-
! ter of u century. Consumption—the
''-groat white plague of the north-is
[more to be dreaded than any epl-
de ie Its victims throughout Canada are numbered by the thousands
demit Its victims throughout Can-
unmmlly, and through its ravages
bright young lives in every quarter
arc brought to an untimely end.
Why ? There ure two reasons, the insidious character of the disease, and
the a:l tdo prevalent belief tlmt
thosa who inherit weak lungs are
foredoomed to an early death and
thai the most that cun be done is to
give tho loved ones temporary relief
in the journey towards the grave.
This is a great mistake. Medical
science now kiows that consumption,
when it has hot reached an acute
stage, is curable. But better still, it
preventive. Sufferers from weak
lungs who will clothe themselves
properly, who will keep the bloqd
rich and red, not only need not dread
consumption, but will ultimately become healthy, robust people. Among
those upon whom consumption had
fastened its fangs, and who have
proved the disease is curable, is Mr.
Udege St. George, of St. Jer*»me,
Que. His story as related to a reporter of L'Avenir du Nord, will be
of interest to similar sufferers. Mr.
St. George says : "Up to the age of
fifteen years I had always enjoyed
the best of health, but at that age I
became greatly run down. I lost
color, suffered constantly from headaches and pains in tho sides; my appetite left nie and I became very
weak. For upwards of three years—
though 1 was having medical treatment—the trouble went on. Then I
was attacked by a cough and was
loid that I was in consumption. Then
ilu doctor who was attending me ordered me to the Laurentian Mountains in the hope that the change of
air would benefit me. I remained
there for some time, but did not improve and returned home ftcling
that I had not much longer lo live.
It was then that my parents decided
that I should use l*r. Williams' Pink
Pills, ami I began taking them. After using several boxes my appetite
begun to return, and this seemed to
mark the change which brought about
my recovery, for with tho improved
appetite came gradual but surely increasing strength. I continued the
use of the pills, and daily ielt the
weakness that had threatened to end
my life disappear, until finally I was
again enjoying good health, and now,
those who know me can see, 1
show no trace of the illness I passed
through. I believe Dr, Williams'
Pink Pills saved my life, and I hope
my statement will induce similar
sufferers to try them."
Br. Williams' Pink Pills make new,
rich, red blood. With every dose the
blood is strengthened, tho quantity
increased, and thus the patient is enabled not only to resist the further
inroad of disease, but is r.oon restored to active health and strength.
If yon are ill or weak, or suffering
from any disease due to poor blood
weak nerves, take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills at once, and they will soon
make you well. Those Pills are sold
by all dealers in medicines, or will
be sent post paid at 50 cents a box,
or six boxes for $2.50 by addressing

came to Halifax as a sailor prince
in 1786, and also visited Montreal
and Quebec Sorel was given tho
name of William Henry in his honor,
but this was afterwards changed.
Next came Frinco Edward, Duke of

He remained in Quebec for three
years at the head of a regiment, and
then commanded tho Imperial troops
at Halifax from 1794 to 1800. Canada had no such honor then until
King Edward came as Prince of

"soothing" medicines, as thoy only
stupefy and deaden without removing the cause of the trouble. What is
needed is a simple, vegetable compound such as Baby's Own Tablets,
which reach the root of all tho minor
ailments of little ones, making them
well and happy. Tlie best prcof of
this is the high praiso all mothers
who havo used this medicine award
It. Mts. AV. S. Beaverstock, Church
street, Broekville, says : "I have used
Baby's Own Tablets in m/ house
for several years ami know of no
medicine for little ones that can
equal them. When my baby was
teething she was restless, cross and
peevish, and 1 could do very little
with her. I gave her the tablets and
they quieted her when other medicines did no good. When baby was
troubled with constipation the tablet* always gave prompt relief, but
above all things I think they are
most excellent in indigestion ; sho
vomited a great deal, was very cross
and would scream with pain, and I
had to get up with her many times
during the night No matter how
much sho ate she kept growing thinner. It was then I began the use of
tho toilets, and sho grew plump and
fat, and I had no further trouble
with lv-r at night. I can recommend
the tnblets to nny mother who has a
sickly, cross or fretful baby, and I
am sure she will never be without
them again." Baby's Own Table!s

Gains a Unique Distinction for Herself In
tlie 11..I i  War.
Ono of the most picturesque incidents of tho Boor war was what has
beconio known as tho "naval engagement" at  lloutjes Bay.
Two fairly largo steamers, tho Sussex and the Kent, engaged in tho
Australian meat trade, were lying
in tho bay exchanging cargo when
the Boers appeared on the shore and
started firing on a small boat which
was making for tho ship.
Tho captains of the ships, perceiving thnt they wcro in danger of being cut off. at tho narrow entrance of
the harbor, immediately weighed anchor and prepared to .stand to sea.
Tho Boers wcro racing for the
points commanding tho entrance
when tho captain of ono of the ships
sighted tlio gunboat Partridge rounding the point. He hoisted signal,
"Boers on shore tiring at boat."
As soon as tho Boers saw tho gunboat they fled, but the Partridge,
steaming rapidly into the bay, commenced dropping shells nmong tho
flying enemy.
The Partridge thus enjoys the distinction of heing the only warship
Which has been directly engaged in
the war, nnd naturally tho sailors
