The rise in the price of lead looks good
to the people of South East Kootenay.
Smelters and refineries mean the upbuilding of British Columbia.
Too many people on tbe coaat and too

Tbe people bave faith in the Pay Roland in all probability work will be renamed on tbis property in tbe spring.
South East Kootenay is a poor field
for wild cat men. That game ik played
out in this district. If you bave anything to aell it must show merit. A
piece of rock and a little hole in the
ground, accompanied by a long talk will
no longer be accepted as a mine. A
good showing ol work and rock is tbe
best combination to exhibit to buyeia.
There will be renewed sctivITy on the
Perry creek placera next season.
Several properties around Marysville
will be developed next season, owing to
tbe erection ol the smelter. Reduced
cost of treatment will start work on several properties.
Tbe government should not fail to extend Ibe road up tbe St. Msrye thia coming season. It is badly needed by the

Instead of one and one-fifth centa, tbe

thia Important announcement to a Miner

Col. Sanndara baa Juet retnrned from
East Kootenay where be baa been looking after tbe affaire of the company
and be aald that -the Intention waa to

June lat and further oa a plant for the
corroding of lead wonld be pal In.
"With a new process invented recent
If In O jrmany." ha aald, "the lead can
can be corroded In two or three daya
while formerly the process occupied
from three .to elx weeks. The plant
necessary for the new process is not
nearly ao expensive as with the old
method. We have looked crefully into
the details of tne matter and have con-
concluded that we might aa well get
five centa for tur lead' In tbe form of
white lead as to aell It for considerable
less tn ore or In tbe form of pig lead."
Asked as to tbe progress which is being made with the amelter he replied
tbat the frames.of the building for the
smelter are all up and that the foundations are nearly coo plated for the roasters. ''Oar Instructions to those eiec.

Asked wben opeiailona would be resumed on the Sullivan mine be re,lied:
"Oa February lat work will be resumed
on our properties, when a forco of 20
men will be put to woik under Supt.
Flndley. According to the report of a
competent engineer, whom tbe company employed apeclal.y for the purpose,
there are 205,000 tons of ore blocked
nut in our mine ready for sloping. Besides this tbete must be In tbe neighborhood of 50,000 tons of ore on the

be plenty of ore for the ISO ton smeller

British Columbia  Makes a

Material  Evidence of   the    Wonderful
Prosperity  of Canada'a
Beat  Province.
From the Cranbrook Herald.
The bureau of mines at Victoria has
issued a bulletin signed by W. P. Robertson, provincial minerologist, giving tbe
mineral output of the province for the
year 1901, aa follows:
"Tbis estimate is based on the actual
returns of a number of the mines, and
for those mines from which returns bave
not as yet been received, Ibe output is
baaed upon their approximate known
tonnage for the last year, together with
the assaya of tbe ores from tbe same
mines for the previous year. You will
note that these are not given as final
statistics for tbe year, which can only
be obtained after all returns are in and
checked very carefully. These will be
included in the annual report of tbe department which cannot be out for about
two months yet. I hand you these figures now ratber than wait for tbe final
statistics, as I believe the prompt publication of even an approximate official
estimate, making ao good a showing,
will be of benefit to the province, and is
generally desired by investors in our
"I think you will find this estimate
conservative, and very approximate,
quite sufficiently so to show the progress which his been made iu tbe mining industry during tbe past year. In
calculating tbe values of tbe products
the usual course bas been followed and
tbe average price for the year in the
New York metal market bas been used
as a basis For silver 95 percent, and
for lead 90 per cent of such market price
has been taken. Treatment and ore
charges have not been deducted Roughly speaking the Increaae made in 1901
over 190*0 is 25 per cent on gross value ol
output of tbe province. This will be a
very agreeab.e surprise to many, as lhe
circulation of reports giving a contrary
impression har caused a very despondeut
view to be taken of tbe progress of the
mining industry during 1901, which does
not aeeru to be warranted bv the lacta.
There is an appreciable drop iu the
placer gold production, owing to the
sudden melting of the snow last spring,
causing freshets, and leaving a shortage
of water during Ibe latter part of the
"The tonnage ol ore mined from lhe
lode mines in the past year is about 871 .
832 tons, equal to an increase 01317,036
over the year 1900, a little more than 57
per cent. Tbere haa been aa increase in
tbe output cf all Ibe metals wltb the exception of lead, lhe low price obtainable
in tbis province for lead ores having discouraged thia class of mining except
where accompanied with good silver
values, The gross value of the copper
output baa Increaaed 306 per cent over
1901, while tbe lode gold baa incieaaed
36 per cent and silver 14 per cent.

i The Remaking
I Of Mr. Watts
And Wbat It Led To.
I very nenily billed a man once—indirectly. As il was, I led to bis breaking
bis arm, cutting bis face very badly and
spoiling bis cloibos. It is a bonid confession to bave to make, but I -.rant to ease
my coust-it'tiee by setting it down.
One ntgbt I was silting in my tittle
room in ibe dull little provincial town of
Church ly. 1 waa thinking what a dull
little provincial town it was. And yet, 1
mused philosophically, I suppose nil the
human Interests of the big world enn be
found in Church); and til! the different
types of human character if one wilt only
go through the boredom of lookiug for
them, when they are on such a very small
scale. Tn Ik of romance, why there is
poor Watts!
At thnt moment Watts came In. He
often visited me of an evening. It was
not so much that be wanted to see nn* nnd
to hear my sentiments, but I was almost
the only person who would sit patiently
by while he aired his two pet subjects—
to wit. hutlertli-'S and Molly Qnrtou,
And Watts wasn't such a had fellow
either. He had nil the makings of n tine
man. 1 used to think, but unfortunately
he waa the only son of a silly mother.
And so she bail never sent him to school
to be kicked by the horrid, rough hoys,
btit had kept him at home with a tutor,
who wore spectacles, and had got into lhe
habit of eternally catching butterflies and
ninths and things and killlug them nml
putting their little corpses in boxes with
their wings stretched out. If he had done
it in moderation, one would have excused
him. Hut he didn't. He simply lived for
it ond for Molly tinrton. And the two
things were incompatible.
As for .Molly herself. I had my ideas
about her. She was my sister-in-law, aud
we had been friends from tbe days when
we had bowled our hoops together in the
High street (much lo the itnnoyunce of
wayfarers) right down to the time of
which I am speaking, when wo had mtny
(i ride and game of hockey in each other's
company. So I flattered myself 1 knew
something or that erratic aud athletic
young lady's mind, and I had come to the
conclusion, first, it' Watls would cease to
be quite such on ass be would make her
an excellent husband, ami, secondly, tlmt,
given that change in disposition, she
would not be unwilling to recognize him
In ttiat capacity.
Butterfly hunting was not to the fore
with Watts tonight. It seemed that that
day the lady had rejected him fur the second time.
Whereon, seated upou my chair, be
made much moan.
"I didn't think you bad the remotest
chance," I said, when he bad finished his
narrative.    He looked at me blankly.
"Unless," I proceeded, "you make up
your mind lo do several tilings."
"What?    What?" he said eagerly.
"First," I replied, folding my hands in
philosophic Cain)) "never to talk of beetles
and bugs for a whole six mouths, never
to let yourself be seen with that long net
of yours iu your ha ml, never to bhow a
soul those little creatures you hnve stuck
pins through."
He gasped, but was silent.
"Secondly," I proceeded, "you must become au athlete."
"1!    All athlete!" be exclaimed.
"Vou must play football," 1 said, "ond
be careful to get your shins well hacked."
He gasped again.
"And in summer time," I proceeded, "1
think It will be well for you to join the
cricket club."
"Impossible!" he murmured.
"It would be desirable nlso," I went on,
paying no attention lo tbe Interruptions
of (he silly man, "if you become u hero.
Now. you might save a life from drowning."
"I can't swim." he muttered feebly.
"Then you must learn to swim," t
shouted witli a sudden emphasis tlmt
quite quenched blm for n lime, "And,
above all, you must learn to cycle."
"Do you think." I said with much in
dlgnntlun, "thai a well built, active girl
like Molly (iJiitoli wonts to upend Iht life
tewing on the buttons of a wretched fellow who can only handle a butterfly lietV"
He looked so miserable as 1 thundered
these words at him that I felt moved to
genuine sorrow for him.   ltut i wascrnel
only lo be kind,
"Come now," I sold in n gentler tone,
"1 have known what love Is"—here I
plgbed and I hough I or my own dear Kittlo
lying under I lie glass in the churchy urd-
"and I know it's worth a good effort to
win a woman.    Let me help yon."
"How can you7" lie said dismally.
"Tomorrow," I replied decisively, "we
start learning the bicycle iu my buck glided. Ou S'liunia.v there is a pick up of the
liu\v r><ts. and ymi come with me to
have your shins hacked "
He groaned, but ihanked me and ns-

"who do you think Is going to join our

"Why- he can't ride." she answered.
"Ob, can't he!" snid I. "lie can ride

"Vou don't mind his coming, poor

"lie enn come If he likes," she said.
I'rom which, being a philosopher, 1
gathered lhat sbe was very pleased be
wa* coming.
And so next day Walts turned up with
bis bicycle und ■ itplci-'Jid nnir of new
knee lueuthes tind some wonderful thick
stockings (o cover his skinny calves.
We started for our trip satisfactorily*
I lagged u little behind and watched the
fun. Walls grasping bis bandies with
immense firmness ami gating lixedly at
lhe road before him, plied his legs with
great vigor in the effort to keep abreast of
Molly, who wns iu ii mischievous mood.
Hni at lost come a catastrophe, There
wns n point where the road forded a to|.
eiohly wide, shallow brook, while by the
side a couple of planks nml a single hand-
roil mode o bridge for foot possengers.
Molly rude in front, and. giving n half
turn of her head, which revealed to me a
broad smile and n twinkle of mischief In
her eyes, she went straight as au arrow
>ver the planks. I saw punt* Watts hesl-
ate for a moment His bicycle staggered.
Then, gathering himself up with a mighty
fi'ort, he rode on to ibe bridge. Then came
i crash, o plunge, a loud shriek from Molly ond in u moment I was in the water
extricating Watts from a confused mass
if spokes and bundles aud carrying him
to the side of tbe ford. Poor cbap! I am
bound to soy that he was very plucky.
He only gave oue groan, but he looked
ghastly pale. The blood was running fast
from a cut in bis forehead, aud 1 quickly
saw that his arm wus seriously injured.
1 called on Molly tbat evening, after 1
had left Watts with his bead bound up
and his arm iu a plaster. She looked
white and seemed intensely anxious to
hear news of him."
"1 just dropped in," 1 soid casually, "us
I thought you might like to know"—
"How is be?   How is he?" she asked.
"Well, I think be will pull through all
right," 1 said slowly, "but it Is n bad
smash. His arm is broken and his beud
is horribly cut. Bat he is plucky about
I saw her lip quiver; then, with feminine quickness, her manner changed.
"Whatever made the poor, silly creature try to cross tbat plankV" she asked
with a lightness that was really ndmira-
I looked her full in the face with a
blank expression.
"Vou know us well ns I do," I snid.
"No, I don't; Indeed I don't," she answered with most impressive inaeeuroey,
I explained ot considerable length why
Walts had got his legs backed at football
ami why he find got Ids arm broken while
bicycling, ond I left her thoroughly miserable to think it nil over.
It wos late iu the afternoon before 1
could get round to see the invalid next
day. I found him in marvelous spirits,
with a quantity of beautiful fresh cut
flowers by bis sofa.
"Who sent theseV" I osked.
"Guess," he answered, a radiant smile
lighting up all lhat part of his face that
was not hid in bandages. So I guessed.
And every day during his convalescence
there were fresh cut (lowers in his room,
and 1 had to guess who sent them.
And then one day I overtook him as he
walked feebly down the street with his
arm iu n sling. He told me he was thinking of dropping in to tea ut Western
Lodge. Now, Western Lodge Is where
Molly lived, and it was.a very nice plaee.
So I asked suavely, "May I come too?"
"Oh, yes, of course, if you like," he replied in such o dismal and disgusted tone
that I laughed aud went nway without
another word.
Hut as 1 sat in my chair that night,
thinking over things In general and particularly medilating on the fact that, just
for want of n candid friend, n really tine
fellow may do nothing but catch insects
all bis life, a little note wos brought me.
II ran thus:
I have caught my lust but tartly. Unique specimen. Priceless value. 1 had to chas* it oo ■

There are n number of honey making
bees which apparently do not use their
stings or in which lhe stings ore atrophied and too blunt to hurt. Some are
very small, so diminutive that they ure
called mosquito bees. They gather quantities of honey, of which Hates, in one of
the forests on tlie Amazon, took two
quarts from one of the nests. In Jarauico,
where some of these amiable bees are also
round, they are called "ungelltos," n name
given tbem by (lie original Spanish settlers in honor of their good temper.
Some Australian dwarf bees—nlso "sn-
gelitos" so far as human beings are concerned—do not use their stings, perhaps
because they ore not sharp enough to
hurt, but deal with their enemies some-
tiling after the manner of the Quaker on
board ship who refused to use n gun, but
threw the Frenchmen overboard. An enemy is held down by several of the bees,
who gradually put him ou the ruck by
pulling his limbs out tight and keeping
them so for as long as un hour, by which
time the prisoner "dies a natural death."
Bumblebees nre popularly supposed not
to sting. The males have no stings, but
tbe females have, at any rate in the common bumblebee. There nre so many sizes
in a bumblebees' nest — large females,
small females and males—that it is n safe
speculation not to take the risk, though
bumblebees ore very cosy going creatures
oud only sting when pressed or hurt.—

The day was one of October's rarest.

He helped old ladies ond children aboard,

There was u tad man with gray hair
and a white mustache on the bock platform, a very well dressed man, who
seemed deeply interested in the trip. He

"George!" tie couldn't repress a little
(start or surprise.

thrust tbe coin Into the proper pocket.

some sharpness.    He stared haul at No.

"No," snapped the older man.
"How are you, fatherV"
"Well enough.    How is it with you?"
"Fine,"   laughed   No.   881;     Then   he
looked a little wistfully al the gray haired
man-    "I   wouldn't   mind  shaking bauds

a new light came iuto them.

The young woman smiled faintly

He paused and looked sharply at the

from him nnd was staring intently nt the

"No," she quickly answered. "I'm crying."
Then she arose and crossed over to the

and lightly kissed his cheek.
"This is very, very good of you, Father

A Mushroom*, tirowtb.
A mushroom's method of growth end
propagation is popularly considered to he
a tirst class mystery. It is not such, however, from tlie scientific point of view.
On tlie contrary, it is very well understood
how the seeds or spores nre developed on
the underside of the fungus, microscopic
aud of vast numbers, a single agaric often
having as many ns 10.000.0011. These
myriad germs, when they laud upon suitable gruund, send forth uumerous line
cottonlike threads, which bring nourishment to the spore. Fattening upou tlie
food It gets from the earth in tills way
the embryo swells Iuto a fleshy kernel,
like a knot amid the network of filaments
about it. Prom tbis kernel the uiuslirnnm
in nil its parts Is developed before it
shows above tbe ground.
Of a certain Scottish professor tho following story is told: Among bis students

him tbe cause of bis unwonted unpunctu-
nlity. Hnshfully tlie young man explained that thnt morning his wife had given
birth to a son aud heir.

brought to a close by the cataclysm due
to contraction and consequent crumbling
of the earth's crust which upheaved the
Rocky mountains and Andes on this hemisphere and the Alps, Pyrenees, Balkans

alteration In the face nf the earth all the
giant reptiles were wiped out of existence. Tills event opened what is called
today the tertiary epoch. It is In the tertiary epoch Hint we live now. At the beginning of this epoch the only reptile*
which survived were tlie snakes, lizards,
turtles and crocodiles, nil of them resembling closely those of their kind which exist today.

laughed nnd shook their heads, and
Bessie's merry face grew grave.
"When you can show tbe possession
of a hundred thousnnd dollars you can
have ber," he snid grimly in answer to
Clyde Brown's manly petition. "Until tben I'll hear no more about It."
"You can never do It," sobbed Bessie
when tbey stood alone In the moonlight by the road a few moments later,
while her father watched angrily from
the window. "Fortunes are wonderful}' made in these mines sometimes,
but none will fnll to us."   '
"Don't bo discouraged, my precious)
Queen Bess," Clyde returned, with all
n liver's unreasoning fondness. "Only
trust lu me through nil and wait for
me, no matter wbat may happen. Will
you promise me that?"
"Indeed I will, dearest! You knew
that I would before you asked," she
murmured. "But do not try uie too
much, for father Is ns hard as n rock." j
"I must go away for awhile, my
darling. Somewhere In yonder endless chain of mountains a fortune Is
waiting for me. I feel It—1 know it
aa well as If It wore already In my
grasp," be answered In solemn earnestness.
"God grant tbat It may be so," sbe
And then she walked slowly to tbe
I'.ouse, to her father's great relief.
The next morning Clyde left the
town fully equipped for a prospecting
tour, and quite alone excepting tlie
three large dogs which followed sedately nt his heels.
For some time the prize which, he
sought eluded him, but it came to him
at last In a strango manner.
One day, after following the course
of a noisy, shallow stream Into a narrow valley hemmed In by lofty mountains, be camped at the foot of a
gigantic tree near the water.
The dogs whined uneasily nnd sniffed
at a bole among the roots of the tree,
but be called them nway nnd went on
building a (Ire to cook supper from the
loose wood and branches around.
"Now tbat the fire Is ready," he
mused aloud, "I wouder If I'll find any
game hereabout."
As If In answer a half grown deer
came down to the stream on the opposite bank not'many rods away.
It stopped, wltb one foot upraised,
and looked at the dogs wltb startled
eyes. Tbe next Instant the report r.f
Clyde's rifle rang out, the deer leaped
Into tho air, sprung forward nnd fell
Into the stream, from which It win
soon dragged by the dogs.
But the echoes made by tbe report
bad not died out among tho hills before
another sound nroused them ngnin.
It was the scream of an angry panther from tbe mountain behind him,
nnd It wus Instantly answered by another on the right nnd yet another far
down tbe valley on the left.
Clyde heaped the dry limbs upon the
fire, aud the dogs, usually as brave ns
lions, whined piteously us they skulked
close to his feet.
He wnlted lu brcnthlcss anxiety for
several minutes, but could bear nothing except tho crackling of the fire,
which now threw a wldo circle of
light, and the night wind among the
Soon, following n magnetism which
he could nol account for, he fixed his

And tbe dogs closed on blm; but,
wounded ns he was, he was more than
a match for them.
He killed one and sent tbe others
howling to a safe distance before their
master could surely aim the secona
bullet, which quieted him.
He was not an Instant too soon, however, for there came another terrific
scream, 'bis time from tbe tree directly
over bis herd,
"I'm.ready for you now!" he cried,
coolly sighting another panther directly
between the scintillating eyes.
He fired and sprung aside, while the
animal fell, struck the ground with a
heavy thud, clawed the earth and nlr
convulsively for a few seconds and then
lay quite still.
"This Is getting Interesting," muttered Clyde grimly, eying the two huge,
tawny bodies, the dead dog and the
skulking living ones, while he threw
fresh wood upon the scattered Ure and
peered In every direction.
"Meow!   Meow!   Sst-t-t!"
lie turned sharply to see the heads of
two panther cubs thrust out of the hole
near the tree, their ears laid close to
their round bends nnd their eyes sweeping tlie scene In fierce Inquiry.
"Hn, ba! A regular family party I've
stumbled on," laughed ClyCe. "S-s-s!
Seek 'em, boys!"
And the dugs pulled one kitten out to
his dentil, while the otber scrambled
back In the bole.
Suddenly there wns a slight noise In
the edge of the forest, and two half
grown panthers cnnie cautiously Into
the circle of the light, sniffing the air
uneasily nnd evidently afraid of a trap.
The smell of tlie scorched hair aud
the blinding glare of the fire puzzled
But Clyde did not wait for tbem to
become satisfied of tho safety of nn attack. He fired two shots lu quick succession, killing one animal and badly
wounding the other, which the dogs attacked at once.
When tbe sharp, short fight was over,

praise of bis master, while the other
lay dead beside its dead foe.

Tbose who are not in touch with the
lives of working men and women can
scarcely realize what it means for either
evx to bring home bis or ber wage in an
"unbroken envelope." Saturday night
means freedom to spend, a taste of pleasure, u bit of fun. It would lift the estimate of human character if to those who
do uot have to measure tbeir income by
tbeir labor. It conld be told bow many
thousand lads and tired bright eyed girls
carry to tbeir homes those tight sealed
little treasures to be dispensed for the
family good. The sweetheart must wait,
the door of the theater remain closed, the
coveted new clothes be abandoned, until
tbe rent is paid, the fuel is stored, the
younger children clothed and mother kept
from worry. Tbe young lives erect themselves like pillars to uphold the roof and
stand guard until they can without self
reproach pass on to their own homes.
A. j lister estimate of tbe possibilities of
single lives would, I imagine, engender a
broader view of probable happiness and

valuable preventive against a host of
diseases. The physical effects of laughter are thus put down by Dr. Kennedy:
Laughter Increases the blood circulation.
It enlarges tbe heart
It expands the lungs.
' It Jiggers the diaphragm.
It promotes the dioculatlon of the
In other words, laughter stirs up the
vital regions of the body, gives them
healthful exercise and produces a mental exhilaration which acts upon the
system much as a brisk walk In a crisp
atmosphere does upon the appetite. As
strong allies to laughter Dr. Kennedy
gives tbe following directions for men
tnl peace ot mind:
Beware of theologians wbo have no
sense of mirth. They are not altogetb
er human.
Keep your chin up.
Don't take your troubles to bed with
you. Hang tbem on a chair with your
trousers or drop them la a glass ot water with your teeth.

on tbe head. If his prescription and
advice are followed, bis own bills will

lome Svper.tltlou. That Still Exist
Upon tha Subject—Muon Tlieorle.
That Ara Mere Sarvlval* From a
Paat Credalitr..
A belief prevails thot the moon's
phases and changes bave a controlling
influence over the weather, but so great
an authority as Professor C. A. Young
of Princeton bas assured us that the
moon has. absolutely nothing to do wltb
tbe weather.
Such a belief Is In tbe strict sense of
the word a superstition—"mere survival from a paij. credulity. It Is quite
certain tbat if Tbere Is any Influence
at all of tbe sort It Is extremely slight,
so slight tbat It cannot be demonstrated with certainty, although numerous
Investigations bave been made expressly for the purpose of detecting It. We
bave never been able to nscertalu, for
Instance, with certainty whether It Is
warmer or not or less cloudy or uot nt
the time of the full moon. Different Investigations have led to contradictory
"As to the supposed connection between 'changes of tbe moon' nnd
changes of the weather, It should be
enough to note that even within the
United States the weather changes are
rot simultaneous (lu Kansas and
Maine, for instance), ns tbey should be
if they were due to tbe euuuglng
phases of tbe moan. Since, however,
a change of the moon occurs every
week, every weather change must
necessarily occur within about three
days aud a half of lunar change, aud
half of tbem ought to fail within about
forty-five hours, even If perfectly Independent
"Now, It requires only a very slight
prepossession in favor of a belief In
tbe effectiveness of tbe moon's changes
to make one forget a few of the
weather changes that occur too far
from tbe proper time. Coincidences
enough can easily be found to justify
a pre-existing belief."
From a very remote antiquity. In tbe
twilight of natural astrology, a belief
arose that changes In the weather were
occasioned by tbe moon. Tbat the belief still exists Is clear to any one who
Is acquainted wltb current literature
and common folklore. In fact, it
must be admitted tbat even Intelligent
and well Informed people have been
known to accept tbo theory.
The Idea tbat tbe weather Is affected
by the changes In the moon Is still bold
with great vigor In Knglund, and one of
our proverbs Is, "So many days old tbe
moon Is on Michaelmas.day, so many
floods after." If it rains on St. Swllh-
In's dny, we are told to expect rnln for
forty days after. An equally wise prediction Is tbat If Christmas comes during a wuxlng moon we shall bave a
very good year, and tbo nearer to the
moon tlie better, but If during a wanlug
moon a hard your, and tbe nearer the
end of the moon so much the worse.
Another belief is Hint tbe condition
of the weather depends upon tbe dny
of the week on which the new moon
ebauces to fall. New moon ou Monday,
or moon day, l» everywhere held us a
sign of good wen I her. Friday's new
moon Is much disliked, while Saturday
Is unlucky for the new uud Sunday for
tho full moon.
In Scotland the farmers believe that
a misty moon \n n misfortune, nml an
agricultural maxim among them teaches that
If th. moon show, like s sliver shield,
You noeil not be .(raid to reap your Held,
But if she rise. Iialuetl round
Soon we'll tread ou deluged ground.
Another weather guide connected with
the moon is that to see "the old moon
In the arms of the new moou" Is reckoned a sign of fnlr weather, uud so is
tbe turning up of the horns of the new
moon. In this position it Is supposed
to retnln the water which Is lmngiued
to be In It and which would run out If
the horns were turned down.
The country people In Scotland foretell the changes of the weather from
the changes In tbe appearance of the
new moon. If she "lies snlr on her
back," It Is a sure sign of bad weather,
or when ber boms are pointed toward
tbe zenith.
At Whitby when tbe moon Is surrounded by a halo with watery clouds
tbe seamen say that tbere will be a
change in the weather, for tbe "moon
dogs" nre about. There Is also a belief
prevalent among sailors and seafaring
men that wbeu a large star or planet is
seen near tbe moon or, as tbey express
It, "a big star Is dogging tbe moon,"
this Is a certain sign of stormy weather.—Exchange.

Suffered With That Dread Malady for
Fifteen Years—Treated by Five
Different Doctors—Literally Rescued From Death by Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Middle-ton, P. E. I., Dec. 30.—Mr.
M. 11. L'onnick, the well known
blacksmith of this place, known ull
over thu Island as the imtn • whom
Dodd's Kidney Pills saved from death
as by a miracle has often been interviewed regarding liis ease und is ever
ready to supply the facts.
"1 had been a victim of kidney
trouble fur fifteen years before 1 took
Dodd's Kidney Pills," said Mt. t'ou,-
nick in a recent conversation.
"Did ynu.know it was Bright's
Disease, Mr. L'onnick ?"
"►Not at lirst I didn't; .but when 1
found it out I was startled, I can
toll you. Jn those days, you know,
Bright's Disease was incurable. I
went to five different doctors. They
could do no good. Finally my wife
nnd I went together to one who told
us right out there was no use taking our money. I could not he cured.   I felt that  it was all over."
"How did you come to take Dodd's
Kidney  pills ?"
"Well, one day a customer und I
were talking of the death of a neighbor, aaid my customer said lie was
quite sure if ho had taken Dodd's
Dodd's Kidney Pills ho would have
been cured. That set me thinking.
For the last six years I had been
forced to hire a man to do my work.
Well, I began to take Dodd's Kidney
Pills, and before I had finished the
third box I was again ut work. I
can shoo a horse as well today as
ever 1 could in my life."
"Do you mean to say that throe
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills cured
you of Bright's Disease of fifteen
years'  standing ?"
'Yes, sir, that's exactly what I
mean. I was so stiff and sore I could
not stoop to pick up anything—
couldn't put on my shoes. If my wife
was here she wo'uld tell more about
Dodd's Kidney Pills  than I «an."
