This hotel is now open and ready for guests.
H. D. McMillen, formerly with the Cranbrook Hotel, is
the proprietor, and he proposes to have
A FIRST CLASS HOUSE
Observations by F. E. Simpson,
Cranbrook Herald —
Says the funny man of the Mew York
Herald: It is said upon reliable authority that whet-. J. Fierpont Morgan and
King Edward went into a pleasant little
game of bridge at A mbassador Cboate'a
recent affair, the band began to play
'God Save the King.' "
Tom Wellman, in speaking of the race
meeting at Grand Forks, said: "That
town is all right and ao are the people.
They know how to treat a man right
over there. There was nothing left undone to make it pleasant for me, and
they have one of the finest tracks in the
west. It has cost tbem a nice sum, but
it is a dandy. I didn't expect to do
much with my horses, as they were not
in shape for racing, but I took several
seconds and thirds. No man who had
horses at that meeting had any reason
to kick."
THE STRIKE 18 STILL ON
The railway employes of Cranbrook
are planning for a big picnic in the near
future and hereafter will make the feature an annual one. It is the intention
to take a apecial train to Maryaville or
some other suitable point and spend the
day in fishing and a general good time
There will be athletic sports and prizes
for tbe little folka, so that the day may
may prove enjoyable to all. Cranbrook
should be closed up on that day and
everyone able to get away join the excursion. Tbe railroad boys are entitled
to such a recognition on the part of the
people of Cranbrook.
Hon. George Turner member of tbe
United States senate from the state of
Washington, waa in town Monday and
Tuesday with Mra. Turner. They were
returning from Marysville where Mr.
Turner had been to look over the smelter In that place. Mr. Turner is a democrat aud during the past session of congress baa been recognized as an able
leader in the senate, where his ability as
a speaker and a statesman has made a
strong impression. True to the traditions of the party he represents, Mr.
Turner stands for a radical reduction in
existing tariffa and legislation that will
exert a control over the increasing trusts
that are now thriving in that countiy
under republican rule. He la conservative in bis ideas, yet he believes and advocates thoae piinciples tbat will give to
the masses tbelr rightful heritage in a
country where it is possible for the few
to amaas such riches that amaze even
the money kings of the old country. By
inatinct and nature opposed to his government departing from its recognized
constitutional prerogatives, he believes
it far better to extend the trade territory on our own continent by means of reciprocal relations, rather than to involve
hia country in a war of conquest to secure colonial possession!. Speaking of
Canada and ber six million people Mr.
Turner aaid be had hoped to aee legislation that would break down the commercial bearer between tbe two countries, as Canada'a population waa worth
more from a commercial atandpoint to
the United States than all the island
population that hia country bad sacrificed thousands of lives and millions of
money to possess.
"If the factions of the democratic
party in the States would get together
on those Issues that are live issues today," said the senator, they could win."
The tariff and the trusts are the iaaues
that directly affect the people of tbe
United States, and on those Issues the
democratic party would be victorioua.
Speaking of South Bast Kootenay and
Cranbrook Mr. Turner expreased himself as well pleased with this section of
the country. It is Mr i. Turner's first
visit and she was delighted with the
beautiful sceuery presented to view and
the delightful climate.
An Attempt Is Being Made
To Bring Arbitation.
THE COAL COMPANY REMAINS FIRM
The new vault for the Canadian Bank
of Commerce is nearly completed. We
are anxioua about thia improvement and
hope the work will aoon be done. An
editor'a bank balance is the source of a
lot of worry, and when we know ours is
safe in a fire proof vault, we will be able
to aleep at nlghta.
One of the ladiea who took part in tbe
entertainment at tbe Presbyterian church
laat Monday night, said to a Cranbrook
lady: "I don't suppose there are aix
people in Cranbrook who have heard
•The Holy City?' " Why, bleas your innocent heart, little girl, don't you know
that most of the west is populated by the
brightest and most energetic people of
the east, who have left c.owded cities to
aeek tbeir furtunes in the land of the
setting sun? And yet, many people
from the eaat Imagine that section of tbe
country haa Morganized all that ia left
of human intelligence.
A fair sized crowd gathered at the ball
park Saturday afternoon to witness tbe
game between the Cranbrook and Wilmer nines. The day waa too damp and
cold to play good ball and the extraordinary heavy wind made it next to impossible for the pitchers to do effective
work, and aa a result the spectators were
treated to an old fashioned score, Cranbrook winning 31 to 19. The Wilmer
boya were a jolly crowd and took tbeir
defeat good naluredly.—Cranbrook

Trouble  Is  Causing  a   Business Depression   From Fernie !>• the
Boundary   Country.
THE  COKE  FAMINE.
From Cianbrook Berald.
The only new feature in the Fernie
coal strike is the fact that representatives of the Associated Boards of Trade
of the Kootenaya are in session in Fernie for tbe purpose of Inaugurating a
movement tbat may bring about an arbitration of tbe difficulty and a settlement of the strike. Yet there is little
hope of any such result, as the coal
company has taken tbe stand that it
proposes to run its own business in its
own way.
Under ordinary circumstancea tbe
stand of the coal company would be
right. But when tbe policy adopted
meana ruination, or incalculable loss to
the merchants of Fernie, the district of
South Bast Kootenay and those sections
having mines, tbe running of which depends upon the successful and continual
operation of the smelters, then it ia a
question whether the coal company
should be allowed to use ita awn policy
in the transaction of its business. Especially is this true sir.ee the coal company bas secured its great wealth by un-
heard of liberality on the part of tbe
government in tbe way of mineral land
concessions.
The Herald fully appreciatea that capital ahould not be handicapped in its development of latent resources, and would
never advocate a policy that would have
that effect. But it believes in fairness
and justice to the men and to the province. The Crows Nest Coal company
has been a great dividend payer. It is
in a position to arbitrate and make concessions. It has been a supplicant for
government favors from ita birth, and
the basis of its prosperity today are the
favors thus received.
Tbe merchants of Fernie are entitled
to serious consideration, and tbe least
the coal company can do is to protect
their interests. Tbe freezing out of the
meu now employed and the importation
of a cheap foreign element means ruination to Fernie as a town, and tbe complete ascendancy of the coal company in
the coal belt of tbat portion of the province.
Tbe miners at Michel have returned
to work and coal and coke are now being shipped in limited quantities from
Morrissey and Michel.
Considering the  Strike.
Representatives    of   the   Aasociated
Boards of Trade of the Kootenaya are
meeting in Fernie today to see if anything can be done to bring about a set
tlement of tbe coal atrike.
FROM YUKONS QONDEN CAPITAL.
Liquor   Permit   System    Abolished—
Editor Charged with Theit.
Dawson, Y. T., July 9.—Mr. Prefon-
talne, M. P,, arrived yesterday and left
on a visit to his mining Interestaon the
creeks tc-day. He will remain ln the
country some weeks. He statea Hon.
Mr. Sifton and Hon. Mr. Sntherland
will probably visit Dawson this summer.
The Yukon council Is ln session ani
have passed some important measures;
one abolishing tbe permit system which
controls the liquor traffic. This givas
great satisfaction.
Joseph Andrew Clark, editor of the
Klondike Miner, haa been accused of
tbe theft of J750 by E. O'Donnell, a former partner. Clark'a letter to O'Donnell, a former partner. Clark's letter
to O'Donnell la the moat important evidence against him. On the preliminary
examination Clark waa committed for
trial. The magistrate said the caae
waa so clear he wonld bind tbe plaintiff
not to settle our of court and fixed his
bond at (1,000, and Clark's at (9,000.
Clark has lost the respect of all the
citizens.
Joseph Clark was again up on the
libel charge, preferred by ' Corley"
Munroe. It was continued from May.
Clark wanted to apologize aa follows:
"In connection with the libellous article
complained of herein, I wish to state
tbat on full Investigation, I find my Information on tbe subject to be simply
hearsay, and not capable of proof.
Under the circumstances I think It only
fair and just to Mr. Munroe that thia
statement be publicly made ln order to
vindicate him before tbe public." This
waa accepted by tho crown prosecutor
and the plaintiff.
Heavy rains have prevailed lately
and have greatly assisted mining operations and increaaed the output.

William   Blakemore   Speaks    from   a
Thorough   Knowledge.
Rossland Miner: William Blakemore,
engineer of the great iron properties at
Kitchener, was in Roasland yesterday
and apoke entertainingly to a repre-
senative of The Miner of tbe coal and
coke aituation in this part of the province caused by the atrike at Fernie. Mr,
Blakemore apeaka from a thorough
knowledge of the situation,
"The strike now under »ey at Fernie
ia assuming more than local significance," be remarked. "Considering
that the supply of coke to run our
smelters must come from the ovens at
Fernie it ia a matter in which all the
people of the Kooenays are intereated.
Eight hundred men bave already been
thrown out of work in the boundary
country by the closing down of mines
and smelters, with the certainty of another hundred going before the end of
the week by the Boundary Falls amelter
closing,down. Furthermore, tbe Trail
smelter cannot run many daya longer
without a fresh supply of coke, which
means the enforced idleneaa of at leaat
400 more men. The Nortb port smeiter
receives Its coke from Fernie, and moat
close down when its preaent anpply ia
exhausted. While yon in Rossland can
probably get coal from Roalyn it cornea
at a slight advance in coat, while there
are other citiea and towna in the Kootenaya that are not so favorably situated
in thia regard and must do without.
"Theae are the facta and conditions
tbat face*the people. We are all innocent sufferers. It is like the main aprlng
of a watch, when broken the whole
works stop. Every man, woman and
child in this part of tbe province ia interested. It is not confined to the mine
operators and workmen at Fernie.
"In the face of the facta and conditions above atated atrikera and mine
ownera should get together and settle
their differences. If that faila the government can do no leas than to cause to
be opened up a portion of the 50,000
acres of coal lands now held as a reserve and break up the monopoly held
by the company at Coal Creek. The
company operating at Fernie were given
an inheritance never equalled on the
face of tbe earth. The 50,000 acres of
coal land held by them constitute a mine
of inexhaustible wealth that seems likely to endure for all time. If they cannot
agree with their workmen and cannot
supply our ameltera with coke the reserved landa should be thrown open and
give us our coal and coke from them.
If tbia were done poaatbly more wllling-
ingness would be shown by all partlea to
come together and settle tbeir differences.
'It ia not a pleasant sight to look at
smokestacks that ahow no activity within, or to aee enforced idleness around onr
big minea. Tbe merchant, tbe business
man, tbe professional man, the laborer,
the farmer, all tradea and conditions are
affected and mattera will grow worse until the thing is settled in some way.
'It is unfortunate that the close-down
should come on the beela of the great
disaster there, and still more unfortunate
tbat the innocent public should be made
tos offer."
Onr Mining Country.
There seems every probability that
the adaptation of the oil process to tha
British Columbia ores will prove entirely ancceaaful, and If thia be ao, the
outlook for the Kootenay dlatrict aa a
great mining country will be almoat
indefinitely enlarged. The more far
seeing of investors are already preparing to secure the advantage which will
be offered by being the first in the field,
and once lt baa been placed beyond all
doubt that the Kootenay orea can be
treated for from S3 to J4.50, thera will
undoubtedly be a big ruah of capital
Into that country. Even now, according to the interior papers, money is
coming ln ln anticipation of the success
of tbe process.
It will not only mean Immense activity ln mining circles, but lt wlil mean a
revival ln all the Interior cities and
towna, Aa aa example of what may be
looked for in this direction, Roaaland,
where business depression has existed
for the past year and a half and where
the commercial Intereata have anSered
so severely at the handa of stock manipulators, should double Ita population
In tbe course of two or three years.
The tremendous bodies of low grade ore
in the bills surrounding that town
aaanre ita permanence and proaperlty
once orea containing valuea of 18 can
be treated with a margin of profit. If
snch a result were obtained Roaaland
would yer y quickly rival, If it did not
surpaaa, Butte City ln size and proaperlty. There Is every reason to Imagine, too, that the valuea contained by
these ores will Increase aa depth ln the
mlnea la obtained. In most lnstancea
In Koasland, aa ln the otber campa of
the Kootenaya, the ore becomee higher
grade the farther down development la
pursued.
At the worat, the outlook for British
Columbia's mineral country la not dark j
lt la rather bright and cheerful, and
every year la giving more abaolnte certainty to the claim which baa been
made by mining men of large experience and knowledge, that a decade will
find thia province the largeat producer
' ot any eoontry In the world.—Province.
WORK   WILL   PROCEED
MarysViiie Smeiter to  B6
Completed.
ONLY  A QUESTION OF DETAIL NOW
This  Will   Mean    a  Oreat  Deal  to
tke  Whole  District  and
to Marysville.
"The work of completing the smelter
at Maryaville will be carried forward
without delay."
This statement waa made to The Herald man laat Monday by United States
Senator Turner of Spokane, president of
the Sullivan Gronp Mining company,
who had juat returned from Maryaville,
after giving tbe property there a careful
examination.
"I am satisfied that we have an Ideal
location for the smelter," said Senator
Turner, "and although I waa not pleased
with aome of the work done by our former superintendent, yet that can be easily rectified by the expenditure of additional money, and the plant made juat
what it was intended to be an up-to date
amelter. I am returning to Spokane and
Mr. Hull, who represents the eaatern
atock holders, goes with me. A meeting
of the board will be held, and the plana
and estimates submitted by our new
superintendent for the completion of the
plant will be considered. Just as soon
aa theae details are agreed upon tbe work
will be inatitnted and rushed to completion. It can be gotten ready to blow in
within 60 days after we start. We have
kept on with the otber work abont the
plant, so it is only changea in the structures that will take any time."
Theae statements by Senator Turner
will prove good reading to tbe people of
the district. Since work started on tbe
amelter everybody waa intereated aa
it meant the secret of aucceas to South
East Kootenay. This district needed
ameltera at home, and the Maryaville
project was to fill this want. The delay
in construction has been discouraging,
but now tbat everything haa been aettled
it looks better for Marysville and for tbe
whole dlstri ct
TERRIBLE MINE EXPLOSION.
The Coal Mines at Johnstown,  Penn.,
Take IM Lives.
Johnstown, Pa., July 10—Johnstown
has again been vialted by an appalling
disaster. It la only leaa frightful than
the awful calamity of May 31, 1888, ln
loaa of life. But lt haa brought aorrow
to hundreda of homea made deaolate by
a mine -explosion which took place In
the Cambria Steel company's rolling
mill mine under Westmount Hill at 18 80
o'clock thia afternoon. How many are
dead may take daya to determine, but
that lt la a long list la certain, lt may
reach to 300 or more men.
Johnatown, Pa., July 11—Thia has
been a day of heroic rescues at the Rilling Mill mine of the Cambria Steel
Company. Thrilling experlencea attended the efforts of the 40 brave men who
went down into the abaft with a very
faint hepe that tbe efforts at rescue
would be ancceaaful. The reward of
their efforta waa the saving of the Uvea
of 14 of their fellows and restoring
them to their families.
Johnstown, Pa., July 13—Eighty-seven
dead bodies were taken out of the mine
up to twelve o'clock to-night aa a reault
of yeaterday'a terrible explosion. Eight
men brought ont alive at three o'clock
thia afternoon and aix more alive
shortly after S o'clock. One of the
latter died on the way to the hospital.
Three sections of the mine have now
bean cleared; there are still three aec-
tiona to be explored and those lu a position to know aay aa many more men are

THE PERRY   CREEK   ROAD.
James Ryan's Idea  of  Its Construction1
Has  Been   Vindicated:
Cranbrook Herald —
. For the pist two years Junes Ryan
has maintained that a load could be
built tb tbe St. Marys river by tbe draw
back of St. lingerie hospital that would
greatly lessen tbe distance to Perry
creek, and give a cut off route to Marysville tbat would save a distance of several miles. Last week A VI. McVittie
volunteered to survey the proposed
route for Mr. Ryan, to isettle the question. This generous offer was accepted;
and the survey made, and much to Mr.
Ryan's delight bis pet idea has been
shown to be practicable.
The survey leaves Cranbrook at tbe
St. Eugene hospital and follows the
gulch to the summit and down to Frank
LeCldire's ranch where it intersects the
present Perry creek road. Following
up tbia road about one-quarter of a mile
a clear road is then found to the river,
where tbere Is an excellent location for
a bridge. Mr. McVittie says that tbe
route will make an excellent road. There
ia not a bad hill from Cranbrook to the
river, and the worst grade is not over i
per cent; except tlie short approach to
tbe river bank, and that would not be
over 4 per cent. The balance from St;
Marya river to the Perry creek road i&
5513 feet, and the route is a good one aa
it {stands, except about 300 feet to th*
river approach.' Theri the route follows
the 'Perry creek road i7*>'J feet to carry
it by LeClaire's ranch, Frotn1 that point
to the corner of Ryan's hotel it Is just
7,1 miles, and of thia part about one
mile is a (good paaaable road at this
time. In the whole distance there ia an
aggregate of about two miles that will
cost about $500 a mile to put in shape.'
All of the rest can be built for less than
$100 per mile. The distance from the
river to town is about eight miles, with'
an excellent grade all the way. By tbe
old route it ia nearly n miles And
with a bridge Iwhich could be put in fof
less than $5000, the distance to Marys'*
vllle would be shortened between aix
and seven miles, or about 14 milea on
the return trip.
Conaidering the large amount of travel,
there is no question of the necessity of
tbis improvement, and Tbe Herald
hopes that the government authorities
may be brought to view it in that light;
Cranbrook owes Messrs. Ryan and
McVittie a debt of graittude for what
they have done ln thia matter. Without their efforta the question would have*
remained unanswered.

The Gtinm&ker
Of Moscow &
0 & £3   By SYLVANUS COBB, Jr.
zk.:*...<k.i
vvitn tnese woras mo monk turned away, and ere Rurio could command presence of mind enough to
follow him he had gone from the
house. Tho youth wished to say
something, but amid the varied
emotions thnt went leaping through
his mind he could gather no connected thoughts.
After tlie monk was gone Rurie
returned to his bench and resumed
liis work, lie asked liis boy if ho
lind ever sen .i tbe strange man before, but Paul only shook his head
and answered dubiously.
"What do you mean?" the gunmaker asked, gazing the boy in the
face. "Do you think you bave seen
him before?"
"I cannot tell, my master. I may
bave seen bim before and I may not.
lint surelv you would not suppose
tbat my memory would serve you
belter than your own.''
Rurie was not fully assured by
this answer. He gazed into Paul's
face, and bo fancied ho detected
some show of intelligence there
which had not been spoken. But he
resolved to ask no more questions
at present, lie had asked enough,
he thought, upon such it subject,
and he made up his mind to bother
himself no more about it, feeling
sure that if his boy knew anything
which would bo for bis master's interest to know it would be communicated in duo season. So he applied himself anew to his work, and
at noon the pistols were finished.
Toward the middle of the afternoon, just as Rurie had finished
tempering some parts of a gun lock,
tbe back door of his shop was opened, and two men entered. They
were young men, dressed in costly
furs and both of tbem stout and
good looking. The gunmaker recognized them as the Count Conrad
Damonoff and his friend Stephen
Urzen.
"I think I speak with Rurie Ne-
vel?" said the count, moving forward.
"You do," returned Ruric, not at
all surprised by the visit, since people of all classes were in the habit
of calling at his place to order
arms.
The count turned a shade paler
than before, and his nether lip trembled. But Ruric thought that might
bo the result of coming from the
cold into a warm place. However,
lie was soon undeceived, for the
count'B next remark was significant:
"You are acquainted with the Lady Rosalind Valdai?" ho said.
"I am," returned Ruric, now beginning to wonder.
"Well, sir," returned Damonoff,
with much haughtiness, "perhaps
my business can bo quickly and satisfactorily settled. It is my desire
to mako the Lady Rosalind my
wife."
Ruric Nevel started at these
words, and he clasped his hands to
hide their tremulousness. But he
was not long debating upon an answer.
"And why have you come to me
with this information, sir?" he asked.
"You should know that already.
Do you not love the lady?"
"Upon my soul, sir count, you
ask mc a strange question. What
right have you to question mo upon
such a theme ?"
"The right that every man has to
pave tho way for his own rights,"
replied Damonoff sharply.   "But if
vou choose not to answer let it pass.
I know vou do love the ladv. and
now  1   asic  you   to  renounce  au
claims to her hand."
"By St. Paul, sir count, your
tongue runs into strange moods of
speech! I renounce all claims to
Rosalind Valdai's hand! Was't so
you meant?"
"Aye, sir, precisely so."
"Perhaps you will inform me
what claims I may have upon the
lady," Ruric returned, with some
tremulousness in his tone, for the
very subject was ono that moved
him deeply.
"Ruric Novel, you shall not Bay
that I did not make myself fully
understood, and hence I will explain." Tho count spoke this as
speaks a man who feels that he is
doing a very condescending thing,
und in the same tone he proceeded:
"Tbo Lady Rosalind is of noble
parentage and very wealthy. My
own station and wealth aro equal
with hers—my station, at all events.
She may possess tho undivided right
to moro property than I do; but
that matters not. 1 love her and
must havo her for my wife. I have
been to bco the noble duke, her
guardian, and be objects not to my
suit, but he informed me that thero
was one impediment, and that was
her love for you. He knows full
well, as I know, and as all must
know, that she could never become
your wife; but yet liu is anxious not
to interfere too much against her
inclinations. So a simple denial
from you to the effect tbat you can
never claim her hand is all that is
necessary. You understand me, I
trust. We seek this only for the fair
lady's own good. Of course you
must be aware that tho duke would
never consent to her union witb
you, and yet he would wish to have
your denial to show to Rosalind
when he announces his decision. I
have a paper here all drawn up,
and all tbat will be necessary is simply your signature. Here. It is
only a plain, simple avowal on your
part that you bave no hopes nor
thoughts of seeking tho hand of the
lady in marriage."
As the count spoko ho drew a paper from the bosom of his marten
doublet, and, having opened it, ho
banded it toward the gunmaker.
But Ruric took it not. Ha drew
back and gazed tho visitor sternly
in tbe faee.
"Sir count," ho uttered in a tone
full of noble indignation, "what do
you supposo I am? Do you mean
to tell me that Olga, duko of Tula,
bas commissioned you to obtain
such a renunciation of me?"
"Stephen," spoke the count, turning to his companion, "you heard
the instructions the duko gave me
tbis morning?"
"Aye," returned Urzen, directing
his speech to Ruric; "I did hear,
and you have stated the case plainly."
"I may be as much surprised as
yourself," resumed the count haughtily, "at this strange taste of the
duke. Why ho should seek this signal from you I can only imagine
upon his desire to call up no regrets in the bosom of his fair ward.
He knows that she was once intimate with you and that she now
feels a warm friendship for you.
Por her sake he would have this signal from you."
"But how for her sake?" asked
Kuric.
"Why," returned Damonoff, "do
you not see? Rosalind in the simplicity of her heart may think that
you—a—that you might claim her
love and out of pure principle grant
it to you simply because you were
tho first claimant."
"But 1 never claimed her love,"
said Ruric warmly. "If sho loves
me, she loves me from her heart.
With the noble dnke I never spoke
but once, and then he came here
for me to temper his sword. If you
would marry with the lady, do so,
and if you seek help in the work
seek it from those who have some
power in the matter."
"Yoti mistake, sir," uttered tho
count hotly. "I seek not power
now. I only seek a simple word
from one who may have somo influence, even as a beggar, having saved
the life of a king, may, through
royal gratitude, wield an influence.
Will you sign the paper?"
Now, all this seemed strange to
fturic, nnd he knew that there was
something behind the curtain which
ho was not permitted to know. He
knew the proud and stubborn duke
well enough to know that he never
would have sent such a message as
this but for somo design more than
hnd yet appeared. In short, he
could not understand the matter
at all. It looked dark and complex, and its face was in direct con-
diet with the nature of the man
from whom it now appeared to have
emanated. Ruric pondered upon
this a few moments, and he made
up his mind that he would on no
account yield an atom to the
strange demand thus made upon
him.
"Sir count," ho said calmly and
surely, "you have plainly stated
your proposition, and I will as
plainly answer. I.cannot sign the
paper."
"Ha!" gasped Damonoff in quick
passion.   "Do you refuse?"
"Most flatly."
For a few moments the count
gazed into Ruric's face as though he
doubted the evidence of his own
senses.
"It is the duke's command," he
said at length. *
"The Duke of Tula holds no power of command over me," was the
gunmaker's calm reply.
"Beware 1 Onco more, I say, sign
this paper!"
"You but waste your breath, sir
count, in speaking thus. You have
my answer."
"By heavens, Rurie Nevel, you'll
sign this!" the count cried madly.
"Never, sir!"
"But look ye, sirrah, hero is my
whole future of life based upon my
hopes of union with this fair girl.
Her guardian bids mo get this paper of you ere I can have her hand.
And now do you think I'll give it
up so easily? By the saints of heaven, I'll havo your namo to this or
I'll havo your life!"
"Now your tongue runs nway
with you, 6ir count. I have given
you my answer. Be sure that only
ono man on earth can prevail upon
me to place my name upon that paper."
"And who is he?"
"I mean the emperor."
"But you will sign it!" hissed Damonoff, turning pnlo with rage.
"Here it is—sign 1 If you would live
—sign I"
"Perhaps ho cannot write," suggested Urzen contemptuously.
"Then he may mako his mark,"
rejoined the count in the same contemptuous tone.
"It might not require much more
urging to induce me to make my
murk in a manner not at all agreeable to you, sir," the youth returned, with his teeth now set and the
dark veins upon his brow starting
more plainly out. "You have c<5me
upon my premises, and you have
sought your purpose. You now
have your answer, and for your own
sake, for my sake, 1 beg you to
leave me."
"Nol until your name is upon
this paper!" cried Damonoff, shaking the missive furiously and crumpling it in liis hand.
"Are you mud, sir count? Do
you think me a fool?"
"Aye, n consummate one."
"Then," returned  Ruric, with a
curl  of  nt ter contempt  upon  his
finely chiseled lip, "you need have
I no further dealings with mo. There
is my door, sir."
For some moments Conrad Da-
monofl* seemed unable to speak from
I very anger, lie bad surely somo
i deep, anxious purpose in obtaining
| Ruric's naino to that paper, nnd to
! be thus thwarted by a common artisan was maddening to one who
based all his forco of charcter upon
his ti*lo.
"Sign!" he hissed.
"Fool!" uttered Ruric, unable
longer to contain himself in view of
such stupid persistence. "Do you
seek a quarrel with me?"
"Seek ? I seek what I will have.
Will you sign?"
"Once more—no!"
"Then, by heavens, you shall
know what it is to thwart such as
me!   How's that?"
As these words passed from the
count's lips in a low, hissing whisper he aimed a blow with his fist
at Ruric's head. The gunmaker
had not drenmed of such a dastard
act, and ho was not prepared.fpr
ijt, yet he dodged it sufficiently to escape the mark upon his face, receiving the blow lightly upon the side
of his head. But he stopped not to
consider now. As tho count drew
bnck Ruric dealt him a blow upon
the brow that felled him to the floor
like a dead ox.
"Beware, Stephen Urzen 1" he
whispered to tbe count's companion
as that individual made a movement
as though he would come forward.
"1 am not myself now, and you are
safest where you are."
The mnn thus addressed viewed
the gunmaker a few moments, nnd
he seemed to conclude that he had
better avoid a personal encounter,
for his fists relaxed and he moved
to the side of his fallen friend and
assisted him to bis feet.
Conrad Damonoff gazed into his
antagonist's face a few moments in
silence. Dis face wns ashen pnle,
and his whole frame quivered. Upon his forehead there was a livid
spot where he bad been struck, but
the skin was not broken.
"Ruric Novel," he 6aid in a hissing, maddening tone, "you will hear
from me! The mad spirit of a
vengeance cuch as mine cannot be
trifled with."
And with this he turned away.
"Paul," said the gunmaker, turning to his boy after the men bad
gone away, "not a word of this to
my mother.   Be sure."
CHAPTER ni.
LOVE.
That night Rurie Nevel had
strange fancies while waking and
strange dreams while sleeping
Long and deeply did he ponder upon the strange business which had
called Count Conrad to his shop,
and in no way, under no light, could
be get any reason from it. Why
he, a youth who had never spoken
with the proud duke save once on
common business nnd who was so
far down in the social scale should
havo boen thus called upon to give
a virtual consent to the bestowal
of Rosalind Valdai's hand, was be-
jond his ken. Ho was but a poor
artisan; she a wealthy heiress and a
scion of nobility, and she was under
tho legal guardianship of tbe duke,
whose word, so far as she was concerned, was law. And, again, Conrad Damonoff was a count and reputed to bo wealthy. To be sure,
he was somewhat dissolute; hut,
then, a majority of his compeers
were tho same. Now, if this count
loved the Lady Rosalind and had
asked for her hand and the duke
was willing he should have it, why
had this extraordinary proposal
been sent to the poor gunmaker ?
Rurie asked this question of himself a hundred times. He would he-
gin and lay down all the premises
in his mind, and then ho would try
to make the deduction, but no reasonable one could be arrive at. Ono
thought clung to him like a dim
specter at night, wbich hope would
make an angel and which fear would
paint a demon. Could it be possible
that Rosalind had told her love for
him and that the duke would pay
some deference to it ? He tried to
think so. Hope whispered that it
might be so, but fear would force
itself in and speak in tones so loud
that they could not bo misunderstood. Finally the youth resolved
upon the only reasonable course.
He concluded to let the matter rest,
so far as his own surmises were concerned, until he could see Rosalind,
and that he was determined to do as
60on as possible.
On tho following morning, as ha
was preparing for breakfast, he
saw Olga, tho duke, pass by and
strike off into tho Borodino road.
"Now," thought he, "is tho time for
the visit to Rosalind." And as soon
as he had eaten his breakfast he
prepared for the visit. He dressed
well and no man in Moscow had a
nobler look when the dust of toil
was removed from his brow and
garb.
"Paul," he said, entering tho shop
where the boy was at work, "I may
be back at noon. At any rate, such
is my intention, and if either of
those men calls who were here yesterday you may tell them 60."
"But," returned the lad, "if they
ask me any questions ?"
"Answer them as you think best."
"And if they should ask me if you
would fight?"
"Tell them that I hold my life as
too dear to sell to such as they."
"But surely, my master, the count
will challenge you."
"1 think he will. And," added
Ruric as an entire new thought
came to his mind, "mayhap became
here to create a quarrel to thut end.
By my soul, I think he did."
"1 am sure of it," said Paul.
A moment Ruric's frame quivered
with suppressed passion. Then he
said:
"Let them come, nnd if they
come, or if cither of them comes,
while I am gone, tell thern, or him,
that I am their very humble servant
in nil things reasonable."
Paul promised, and then the gunmaker turned away. In the hall ho
threw on his heavy fur pelisse, and,
having reached the nearest hostelry,
he took a horse and sledge and started off for Kremlin, within wbich
the duko resided.
Within one of the sumptuously
furnished apartments of the palace
of the Duko of Tula sat Rosalind
Valdai. She was a beautiful girl,
molded in perfect form, with the
full flush of health and vigor and
possessing a face of peculiar sweetness and intelligence. She was oniy
19 yeara of age, aDd she had been
ten years an orphan. Her hair was
of a golden hue, and the sunlight
loved to dwell nmid the clustering
curls. Her eyes, which were of a
deep, liquid blue, sparkled brightly
when she was happy, and when she
smiled the lovely dimples of her
cheeks held the smile even after it
had faded from her lips. There was
nothing of the aristocrat in ber
look — nothing proud, nothing
haughty—bnt gentleness nnd love
were the true elements of her soul,
and she could only be happy when
she knew that she was truly loved.
She liked respect, but 6he spurned
that respect which only aims at outward show, while the heart may be
reeking with vilest sensualism.
Rosalind sat thero in the apartment which wns hers for her own
private use, and she was sad and
thoughtful. One fair hand supported ber pure brow, while with the
other she twisted the ends of tbe
silken sash that confined her heavy
robe. Thus she sat when the door
of her apartment was opened and a
young girl .entered. Tbis newcomer
was a srnall. fair creature, bright
and quick, with that raven hair and
those large dark eyes of dreamy
light which bespeak the child of
Moslem blood. Her name was Zeno-
bie, and she was now ubout 16 years
of age. Rosalind's father hnd picked her up on the battlefield from
which the Turks had fled, and, being
unable to find any claimant, he had
brought her home, then almost an
infant. And now she was Rosalind's attendant and companion.
Sho loved her kind and gentle mistress and would have laid down life
itself in the service.
"How now, Zenobie?" asked Rosalind as she notice the girl hesitate.
"There is a gentleman below who
would see you," the girl replied.
"Toll him I cannot see him," said
Rosalind, trembling.
"But this is Ruric Nevel, my mistress."
"Ruric!" uttered the fair maiden, starting up, while the rich blood
mounted to her brow and temples.
"Oh, I am glad he has come! My
prayers are surely answered. Lead
him hither, Zenobie."
The girl departed, and ere long
afterward Rurie entered the apartment. He walked quickly to where
Rosalind had arisen to her feet, and,
taking one of her hands in both his
own, he pressed it to his lips. He
had had a well formed speech upon
his lips when he entered tbe room,
but 'twas gone now. He could only
gaze into the lovely face before him
and murmur the name that sounded
so sweetly to his ears. But the emotions of his soul became calm at
length, and then he spoke with moro
freedom.
"Lady," he said after he had taken his seat, "you will pardon me for
this visit when you know its cause,
and you will pardon me, too, if I
speak plainly what I have to speak."
"Surely, sir"—
"Oh, call mo Ruric. Let us at
least not forget the friendship of
childhood."
"Then I am not a lady," Baid Rosalind, smiling.
"No, Rosalind."
"Ah, Rurio I"
"As we were in childhood," whispered the youth.
"In all but years," returned Rosalind in the same low tone.
"And I may wear the Bamo image in my heart ?"
"1 cannot cast it from mine if I
would."
"The image of childhood, dear
Rosalind?"
"Aye, save that it has grown to
manhood, dear Ruric."
[TO B( CONTINO-m.]
Achieved.
"Remember, young man," said the
practical friend, "that in order to succeed you must teach people to trust
you."
"I bave done that," answered the
gloomy young mnn. "I havo succeed
ed In getting Into debt beyond my fondest expectations."
Nothing Is more conducive to the
health of a horse than a good light,
airy stable. This should be built upon
high and dry ground, snys C. A. Noyes
In Prairie Farmer. Tlie horse Is a clean
animal aud should bare clean quarters,
and to prevent disease arising from
flltl] and neglect careful attention
should be given the stable. Because of
Its nlryness In summer, a log stable
Is much preferred, lt can be made comfortable dining the winter by chinking
tbe cracks with straw.
Opposite each siall should be a window, protected by a shutter, to let ln
the cheering breeze or bar out the
storm. Fasten the rack high ami tirnily
to tlie wall with tlie upright pieces
four inches apart to prevent the wasting of long food. To avoid injury to
the horse the halter should be passed
through a ring lu the matiger anil never tied lo thu rack.
The stall should be live feet wide.
This penults the liorse to lie down lu
comfort, tbe partitions between the
stalls being neatly planked and low
enough lo the floor lo prevent the
horse from getting Ills feet under nnd
high enough to keep the horses from
uiolesllug each other. I-'or a work
horse a dirt tloor Is much the beller,
as the moisture received hy the hoof
coining iu contact with tbe earth makes
It tough. A lied of dry straw is as great
a welcome to a tired horse 'as is his
food aud is as necessary lu a stable as
a currycomb.
Rxert'lne   Farm   Tenina.
The farm teams accustomed to hard
work should not be driven rapidly ou
the roads, says Kansas Farmer. As
fnr as possible the horses on the farm
should have dally exercise In order to
keep their muscles hard and their wind
good.
Reat   Fur  Lninc  Horses.
An error which Is frequently committed Is the turning out of lame horses
to pasture. He is obliged to exercise
as he picks his living, snid Dr. W. C.
Fair before the American Veterinary
Medical association. Another mistake
Is the exercising of trolling and running horses ou race tracks, thus preventing them from making satisfactory
progress toward recovery. By exercising a lame horse we retard his recovery aud frequently produce atrophy of
the healthy muscles in the same limb.
If hard pulling or fast driving cause
lameness, why uot remove the cause
and give him absolute rest? That Is
tbe very reason why so many track
horses never fully recover. They nre
not allowed to rest after meeting with
an Injury. True, exercise will develop
muscles, tendous and ligaments, provided the animal be not lame and weak
ln any one quarter.
Prollt   In  Good  Mm-fa.
Here Is where a good many people
hnve made a mistake—they have let
their good mares go and kept the ordinary oues, to tlie detriment of their
future business—says National Stockman. All farmers need uot and should
uot be breeders of horses. Some men
can make more by keeping cheap geldings to do tbelr work and raising no
colts than they can by keeping mares.
But those who keep mares to breed,
and tbey are In the majority, should
have nothing to do with the cheap
kind. If they keep mares aud breed
them, they should keep good ones.
There Is no prollt In any otber kind.
Let tbe fellow own them that does
not know enough to care what he
breeds. Some men seem to think tbat
the stallion Is tbe whole thing, that
somehow they can raise good horses
with common mares If tbey patronize
good stallions. This Is so frequently
au error that It does not pay to take
tbe chances. Dou't let the good ones
get away. They are needed more nnd
more as tbe buyers become more critical
Function of the Horae'a Froax.
Tbe larger and better developed tbe
frog the better does it fulfill the functions lt Is Intended for. lt Is only necessary to bear tbis ln mind to see that
It Is a mistake to pare away the frog
in any way. Besides thus negatively,
as lt were, Influencing the development
of tbe frog by not having It touched
when the horse Is shod the development may be Influenced directly by allowing the frog to come Into contact
witb tbe ground and to bear weight,
though It does uot do tbis to nenrly the
same extent as do tbe wall and the
outer part of tbe sole, which latter are
the chief parts of tbe hoof for bearing
weight.
In the cases of horses shod In the
usual way the frog necessarily Is not
able to perform Its functions nearly so
well as In the case of unshod horses,
and Id this fact lies one of the evils of
shoeing. If the frog lu the shod foot
could perform Its functions to the fullest extent, more especially ln the case
of harness horses, there would be fewer diseases of the feet.
CrOBB  Breed Ins;  llorao*.
Oue of the greatest sources of disappointment to amateur liorse breeders
and farmers Is the cross breeding of
different breeds with the Idea of striking a happy medium which would be
superior to either of the odgiiinls, says
Western Horseman. The law of average Is tbe great law wltb this class of
breeders, aud nothln,T seems more logical to them than that tho nrodiico of
a 000 pound, tifteeu hands high roadster mare and a U.OUI) pound, seventeen
hands high draft stallion should lie tin
Ideal 1,200 pound, sixteen hands high
couch or carriage horse. Twenty disappointments to one .satisfactory product Is a fair average of results lu this
line of breedlug.

There is a great deal of rough, bro
Uen land In western and southwesterly
Texas thnt will grow fuirly good grass

says Dallas Farm nnd Itunch. At the
same time there ure millions of acres
In the stute that are now being grazed
that can be successfully plnntcd nnd
cultivated, nt least iu forage crops. By
increasing the acreage cultivated of
these tillable lands their cattle producing capacity will be correspondingly
Increased. In other words, n given territory with u largo percentage cultivated iu forage crops will produce, fatten nnd feed more cuttle thnn will the
snmc amount of similar territory
where the native grasses nre relied on
solely for feed. It usually requires
ten acres to the animal to supply feed

grasses are relied ou, while ten acres
properly cultivated in forage crops
will produce feed enough to carry a
half dozen cattle through the winter,

This year's experience of feeders
with shredded eoru fodder will go a
long way toward determining the status of this too ir^-h neglected forage,
says American Agriculturist. If attention Is given to thorough drying before shredding, there can be but little
doubt ns to the outcome. So far as
the careful farmer Is concerned, shredded fodder hns passed the experimental stnge. He knows It Is first class
rough feed and that If given the proper attention keeps perfectly. However, the average farmer and stockman,
with his somewhat cureless methods,
mny not get the best results. But be
knows that the fault Is his own, nnd
lie can remedy It If he will. Tho conditions nre much the snme ns those

says, "Provide good roads, nnd you

STOP UP THE CRACKS.

As the weather begins to get colder,
especially o; nights, It Is inerensingly
Important that the birds shall he snugly sheltered from winds nnd storms.
We do not menn tbnt they shnll be
shut tight up so that no fresh air
whatever can reach them, but that
drafts shall be shut off, for it is to
drafts that most of the colds of autumn and winter are due. The farmer thinks: "Yes, It's getting colder.
Guess I'll shut the henhouse door tonight." But he does not recall that
there are several cracks ln the walls
and around the window nnd door
frames thut he meant to stop up some
time, but he hasn't found the convenient time yet. Those crncks hnve been
growing larger. The house Is only
four or five years old perhops, and
when it was built the Joints were
mnde tight, and the pernicious drafts
didn't exist. The first summer's sun
and rains seasoned the boards and
opened up the seams a bit lu two or
throe places, but not seriously. The
next summer's sun und ruins added to
tho seasonlug. and In one or two In-
stnnceB a bit of light could be seen
through a crack. And so it has gone
on until now there nre several decided
leaks in the walls, where the winter
winds whistle through aud make piercing drafts In the pen, even though
window nnd door be tightly closed.

gone fully half wny In bending off
tbat most troublesome nnd costly ailment And prevention Is so much easier and simpler than cure. Any one
who has wearily battled through a
siege of roup will say "amen" to that.
And lt Is so easy, too, to stop up
the cracks. With a few cents' worth
of "Neponsct" or "Pnrold" or "Bubo-
rold" roofing material and a hammer
(the nnlls aud tin heads come with It)
a man can close In the walls of the
house and effectually shut out the winter blasts. Either of those roofing materials properly put ou makes a poultry house or barn or any outbuilding
both wind and water tight, aud thereafter the ventilation of that building
by window and door Is wholly within
control. Wltb the cracks stopped up
and direct drafts prevented tbe fowls
can go to roost at night In comfort,
and tho owner will not be likely to
be greeted with sneezes and other
symptoms of the dreaded colds when
he opens the door in tho morning.
Shutting off the direct drafts pays In
nnother way—namely, In egg production—and Is to be recommended for
that reason also. Warmth is a factor
In tbe production of eggs, and the shutting out of the chill blasts Is the first
step toward securing that desired
warmth. Absence of cold Is warmth.

Hard   Boiled  EffaTS  For  Ponlta.
I notice in some of the poultry papers
a sharp criticism on feeding hard boiled eggs to turkey poults. Now, I feed
a certain per cent of hard boiled eggs
with most excellent results. Years ago,
before I adopted my present way of
feeding, I lost fully half that batched.
Since adopting my present plan I raise
95 per cent, barring accidents. Last
year I had fifty or more killed on the
railroad or by dogs. This year I have
beeu fortunate enough to prevent any
being killed and hnve a largo drove.
I have lost some, I hardly know how.
There were no sick ones. It was after
they wero turned on the range, and
thoy just came up missing. As I turned them out to ruti before tbe hay and
onts were cut I think tbey probably
got tangled In the long grass. Only a
few from each flock wero missing.
I think persons win) condemn the hard
boiled egg Imagine that it Is made an
exclusive diet, when it only makes perhaps one-third of a meal twice a day,
green food one-third, oatmeal or millet
tbo other third. Eggs put lu cold water nnd boiled n long time nro very different to digest thnu eggs put In boiling water.—Mrs; Charles Jones lu Poultry Keeper.

DPt Chase's Nerve Food Builds Bipod, Creates Nerve Force, Increases Flesh and Weight, and

Ll HUNG CHANG'S WIVES.
The   FIrat   One,  Thoaffh   Alive,'Waa
Looked  Upon aa Dead.
The one romantic complication In the
life of the late Macbiavelll of China,
Ll Hung Chang, Is amusing or tragic
according as one may choose to look
nt It.
Earl LI early in bis distinguished
career took a wife. During tbe Tnl-
ping rebellion his wife had to fly to the
In. rlor for safety, where she lived for
many months without communicating
with her husband. The Chinese statesman meanwhile, thinking his wife bnd
perished with other victims In the massacre, enlisted the sympathies of the
emperor, who ordered a mngnlflcent
funeral. The empty coffin was followed to the grave with all pomp and
ceremony of state by Ll Hung Chang
and representatives of the emperor.
After a period of mourning Ll Hung
Chnng took unto himself nnother wife
nnd settled down again to domestic
felicity.
Then the first wife appeared. She
had narrowly esenped the massacre
und hnd been living with her fnmlly.
Mrs. Chang No. 1 took exception to
Mrs. Chang No. 2 and wished to be
reinstated ns principal wife, for tlie
law of China does not allow polygamy.
Ll Hung Chang was In a great stew.
In despair be applied to the emperor.
Tbe emperor said Mrs. Chang No. 1
had been accorded a state funeral.
Therefore, to all Intents and purposes,
she was dead, and he advised his minister to Ignore her, which he did. As
minion are treated as mere chattels In
China, the first" wife did not demur,
but went bnck to her family, among
whom she died.

St. Urbaln, Que., April 21- (Special.)—Fearful indeed has been the experience of Narcisse Darrette, ol this
place. For fifteen long and wearisome years he has sulVered with an
acute malady of the kidneys and
back which has caused him the most
agonizing pains.
He consulted physician after physician and followed their treatment
patiently* and carefully. Some of
them afforded him a little temporary
relief (which was in itself a great
blessing), but the pain always came
back to torture him even worse than
before.
llhenmalism adtled its terrors to
his already great burden of misery
and ' his life was a succession ol"
spasms of the most violent pains it
has ever been the lot of mortal man
to endure.
The story as told by Mons. Darrette himself is in part as follows :
"For more than fifteen years r suffered with a severe Malady of the
back and Kidneys which caused me
horrible pains in the back.
"I tried many doctors, but the relief they gave me was only temporary ami the Malady always returned.
My Buffering was so great at times
that it was almost beyond endurance.
"1 had rheumatism as well as the
pains in the back, and between them
1 was sorely tried. 1 would rather
die than suffer again the way I did,
but now life is very pleasant to me
and 1 am anxious to live.
'You ask me how I was cured ?
'Well, after trying in vain doctor's
treatments and almost everything;
Ise, 1 began to use what lias bjpen
to me the greatest medicine in all
the world, Dodd's Kidney Pills, and
very soon the pains all left me.
They acted almost like magic. I am
now in perfect health and work
every day."

From the Topic, Petrolia,  Ont.
It is impossible thut a medicine can
be so widely known and used as are
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills without
striking results frequently becoming
known and the merits of this great
remedy for the common ailments of
man and womankind being published.
Mrs. Thos. Kettle, of Fetrolea, Out.,
is a case in point. Mrs. Kettle is an
old resident of this district and is
well known. Chatting with a reporter of the Topic the other day
the conversation drifted on the subject of medicines, when Mrs. Mettle
spoke in tbe highest praise of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which, she
said, had cured her of a long illness.
Our reporter, being naturally interested, made further enquiries, when
Mrs. Kettle gave him tho following
particulars : "I am the mkther of
twelve children and in spite of the
constant strain and worry the raising of so large a family entailed upon me, in addition to my housework,
I was for many years blessed with
splendid health. However, afler the
birth of my last child my strength
seemed to fail me and I felt that my
health was gradually going. 1 consulted a doctor and continued under
his treatment for some months, but
the only result that 1 could see was
that 1 grew gradually worse. I could
not name any particular ailment that
I Buffered from, but 1 was "all run
down." My appetite failed me. my
Strength seemed all gone and 1 became pah* and listless, scarcely able
to drag myself nround, and much of
the time in bed. I became alarmed
at my long continued ill-health, and
as doctor's medicine had done mo no
good I determined to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I purchased a box
and thought it did me some good, so
I got six boxes more, and before I
bad finished taking the second I felt
a lot better, and by the time 1 had
finished the seven boxes I hail perfectly regained my health, had gained weight and felt better thau I had
for some years. 1 consider the pills
a splendid medicine, a real godsend
to weak and ailing women, and have
frequently recommended them to my
friends and used them wiih my children, always with good results."
Judging from Mrs. Kettle's healthy
appearance to-day none would imagine she had ever known what a day's
illness meant.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills aro a positive cure for all diseases arising
from impoverished blood, or a weak
or shattered condition of the nervous system, such as epilepsy, St.
Vitus' dance, paralysis, rheumatism,
sciatica, heart troubles, anaemia,
etc. These pills are also a cure for
the ailments that mako the lives of

MARKET REVIEW.
(Compiled from Tho Commercial)
WHEAT—During the past week it
has seemed an unusually difficult
thing for traders to make up their
minds as the chances of the present situation in the wheat trade.
Last week trade showed ieself active
and markets buoyant, but in the interval between Friday and Monday
there was an increase of showers
over Kansas ans adjoining territory,
and on Monday the speculative markets in the States felt the effects of
this strongly, and a drop of Jc lo
l-!4c took place. A more confident
feeling resulted on Tuesday, but on
Wednesday another bad break took
place, resulting in a drop of lc to
l3/4c. .Since then some renewal of
confidence is evident, but in the week
prices show a decline of lc to I'/ie,
compared with closing prices on
Friday of last we*ek. The rains and
more favorable weather over a large
area of the winter wheat in the
States have imparted a somewhat
more encouraging feeling as lo the
prospects for the crops over such
area, but wo think the improvement
amounts rather to the saving of a
portion of what was promising to
be almost a lost crop had the adverse
weather been continued rather than
the establishing of anything that
could now turn out a fairly good
yield. In fact, we are of the opinion
that the rains in Kansas and the
southwest have come at a time
when the crop is too far advanced
towards harvest to be benefitted
materially by it, and that the yield
in the State of Kansas at least will
not amount to over 50 per cent, of
last years' yield.
Manitoba wheat has been very
piiet and demand extremely light.
Ou Saturday last the value of 1 northern in store Fort William, spot or
May delivery, was 75Vjc, and 2 northern 7-Mc. On Wednesday theso
prices were down to 74c 1 northern,
and 72c 2 northern, and since then
they have advanced again to 74%c 1
northern, and 72-).ic 2 northern, at
which prices sales were made yesterday, although for the most part sellers were holding for 75c 1 northern,
and 7Mc 2 northern. 1 hard is offer-
id at 78c spot or May delivery in
store Fort William without finding
buyers.
FLOUR-Hungarian Patent S2.05 per

GROUND FEED—Demand is steady
and prices remain unchanged as follows : Oat chop, per ton, $27.50;
barley chop, $.21.50; mixed barley
barley and oats, $24..50; oatmeal
feed, $11.50; oil cake, S27.
OATS—There is not very much
business doing in oats just at present, as the weather is not favorable
for traffic. A little demand has been
xporienced from the east, which has
been met on a basis of 40c per bushel for No. 2 white at Fort William,
the same figure as we quoted a week
ago. Local dealers are also paying
the same prices as a week ago for
I heir supplies. We quote : No. 1
white, in carlots on track, Winnipeg,
per bushel, 42 to 44c; No. 2 white,
40 to 41c; feed oats, 87 to 88c; seed
oats, 45 to 50c, At country points
farmers are gelling 22, to 30c for
No. (& white oats. Street oats are
not offering.
B.VULEY— Receipts nre very light,
and the market holds firm at 40 to
42c for malting grades, ami 38 to
40c for feed.
FLAXSEED— Dealers are asking
$2.00 per bushel for seed flax.
HAY—Receipts are light, and the
market is $1 higher at ?8 to SO per
ton for fresh baled. Loose hay is
not offering to any extent.
POULTRY—Thero is very little
poultry in the market. Chickens are
worth 12',-iC per pound for fresh kill,
ed, and turkeys 1214c to 15c, according to quality.
BUTTER-Creamery-— Two of the
country factories commenced operations this week but so far have shipped no butter. The weather is not
favorable for pasture or trafllc consequently milk gathering will be
a slow process until it gets drier.
Commission houses are quoting 2lc
to 22c pei" pound for choice creamery
butter in tubs or rolls, while other
grades range down to 16c for round
lots.
BUTTER^Dairy—Receipts of dairy
butter are very light. Oldest traders here say they cannot remember
the market being so light of stocks.
As high as 20c could be obtained on
a connuission basis for fresh made
choice butter.
ECUS—Supplies aro light and the
market holds firm at 9-^ to 10c per
dozen for fresh case eggs at country
points.
LIVE STOCK.
CATTLE)— Some cattle have already
been shipped east to meet the excellent export demand. Butchers are
finding cattle very scarce and hard
to obtain. For choice beef animals
they are now paying as high as 5c
per pound off cars here. The general
range of prices is from 41,-[ie. to 5c.
Then1 is a good demand for s tuckers,
aud the westward movement of these
is now qui to heavy, Yearlings art-
worth as high as $10 per heatl at
point, of shipment. Two year olds
are bringing from S20 to S22.
Mll.Cll (JOWS-r- Cows are very
scarce, and good milkers readily
bring S45 each iu this market. As
most of the slock offerings are poor,
they bring Jess money, the range being from 585 lo $4-0,
HOUSES—There is a. good steady
demand for horses for both farm and
general use, and dealers lind no difficulty in disposing of all they can secure* The market is being hugely
supplied from Ontario.
New York, May 13—A double funeral for Paul Roiraster Ford, the

They were buried in different parts

When the white man wants the
black man's land he approaches the
innocent black with " presents" of
beads, colored cloths, ribbons, and
other useless trinkets that catch the
eye of the poor black—but that are
no earthly use to him. These are
all " gifts—free—gratis—for nothing ! ! !" We all know who soon
owns the black man's land.
Yet this system of conciliating the
innocent is not practiced alone on
the negro. How many women
read that they can get a certain
" present" with a certain purchase
and forthwith they make the purchase to get the " present "—free-
gratis—for nothing ! ! ! The present may or may not be useful—but
in this twentieth century are there
those who believe they have not
in the purchase paid lor and often
dearly paid for the "present"?

get the present of a horse or a dress
can you get a " present "—free-

of the renl condition of the dikes saved
the country from nn awful catastrophe,
the full extent of which wns comprehended by only a few Dutchmen.
The timbers bnd been honeycombed
by the teredo, or shipworm. This
creature burrows Into any wood lm-
nieisccl In sen water. It makes an entrance when young anil digs channels
along the grain of the wood, living
and often dying lu tbe timber. Tho
worm grows In some localities to a
length of twelve Inches, Its girth being one and a half Inches, and the
curious tiling about Its whlpilke body
is Its exceeding tenderness. It cannot
benr Its own weight. It will break If
subjected to any strain.
It will burrow straight nlong the
grnln of tiie wood unless turned nside
by a knot or mill, and, no matter how
many of these worms may lie burrow*
Ing In the same piece of wood, they
never run their channels Into one nnother. lty some marvelous Instinct
they keep clear of each other's preserves. We have recently seen a cross
section of ii log eighteen Inches In

than 8UII distinct burrows.

Ed. Smith, M. P. P., of Fort Steele
was ln town this week. He was also
accompanied by Mrs. Smith and

with tbe progress of Marysvillle and
also with the smeiter construction.
When Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of tbe 0. P. R., returned to the
east from his annual trip over the line
be gave oat an extended interview regarding Improvements planned on the
road.
Speaking of the contemplated general
improvements to the road, Sir Thomas
said the reduction of gradients and of
curvatures would be proceeded with
just as soon as Mr. McHenry, tbe new
englneer-in-chlef, had time to elaborate
his plans, which Involve an expenditure
of millions of dollars, and which It is
estimated will increase the hauling capacity of locomotives by from 25 to 40
per cent.
As for tbe proposed double tracking
of the Canadian Pacific railway between
Port Arthur and Winnipeg, Sir Thomas
said the gradual lengthening of the side
tracks was being proceeded with, and
although these are from 2,000 to 3,500
feet long, and only four miles apart,
this will be shortened considerably before the close of the present year.
This Indicates tbat the Canadian Pacific railway will soon have a complete
double track from Lake Superior to the
great wheat growing districts of the
Dominion.
By the end of 1703 Canada's transcontinental highway will not have a
wooden trestle of any kind from Montreal to the Pacific ocean, and throughout that immense distance the main line
will be laid with eighty opound steel
rails.
The Canadian Pacific railway management is working with a swift hand
to meet the demands which, it is anticipated, will be madeupon Iu passenger
and freight service during the summer
and fall, and day aad night tbe shops in
Montreal, Perth and Farnbam are
working on Immense orders tor cars and
orders have also been placed with outside firms.
The number of freight cars for whlcb
orders bave been given is 2,650, of
which 2,3000 are box cars of 40 ton capacity each. Tbis will bring its number of freight cars to about 25,000.
Five hundred are to be built at Hoc-he-
laga, 1,000 at Amherst, N. S., and 800
at Perth ln time for the fall traffic. At
the shop at Perth, which la turning ont
ten cars a day, 100 coal cars of an order
of 300 have already been built. These
will likely be used ln the west. Fifty
ore cars will follow tbe coal cars. At
Farnham of 50 vans for which orders
were given 30 are nearly completed.
| Seventeen express cars are in course
of construction, and when finished will
give a complete equipment for this
branch of the service.
To meet the demands of ordinary
travel, orders were given for forty lirst
class coaches, of which sixteen have recently been turned out and four are
nearlng completion. They are tbe
standard Canadian Pacific railway
coaches, finished to mahogany, and have
uo Important changes in taeir construction, save that In twenty i f them the
smokirg rooms are being made double
tbe site of those ordinarily In use in
first class coaches.
Two parlor cars, seventy feet long,
with six wheel tracts, are being hurried
along. These are the standard cars,
-nahogany outside, while the Interior is
finished in mahogany, inlaid with marquetry. Being of such a length and
heavy they give assurance of comfortable traveling.
"DOCTOR M".
The K inland Miner aaya of "Doct.r
M ," the famous guldless pacer, wbo
was at one time the property of E J.
Peltier of Cranbrook.
For the benefit of Rosslanders who
did not wituess the wonderful performance of "Doctor M." Harry Mcintosh's
remarkable guldless pacer, at Grand
Forks, Mr. Mcintosh baa volunteered to
give an exhibition at Sunnyside driving
park a week from to-morrow. The
event will come off, weather permitting
about 3 o'clock In the afternoon, Tbe
exhibition will be entirely free to the
public, and will doubtless attract many
horsemen and othera Interested ln the
equine race.
At Grand Forks "Doctor M." made
the  mile   guldless  ln 2.41 1-2 over a
heavy track.     Mr. Mcintosh proposes
to send tbe horse against this record,
and will have him worked ont for several days previous to the test wltb a
view to putting him ln good shape for
the trial. If the track is ln good condition and other particulars, such as having a fast running mate are arranged,
the Grank Forks record should be reduced several seconds.   At the "Gateway
City" Mr. Mcintosh bas galloper from
a local livery barn, and the owner of
the bang-tall gave an assurance that he
could cover a mile faster than any pacer
that ever put hoof to track.    The test
demonstrated, as many Rossland people
testify, that the galloper waa not fast
enough fer "Doctor M.," and the latter
fairly ran away from hia running mate
on the home.stretch, although the galloper   was  brought home under whip
and spur.    The  strong   feature about
"Doctor   M.'s"   performance,  from a
spectacular standpoint, Is bla astonishing  Intelligence  on  the start  and ln
"jockeying" for a desirable position at
tbe pole.   In this respect the horae die-
plays all the Intelligence of a trained
driver, and rarely falls to recure the
coveted position, which cannot always
be aald of even tbe moat experienced
relnsmen.
It bas been suggested that ln connection with the exhibition by "Doctor M "
a splendid opportunity Is afforded for
the gentlemen riders who entered their
mounts ln tbe carnival run aud afterwards scratched to pull the event off.
Some considerable discussion baa arisen
since the carnival as to the relative merits of the horses that were to have run
ln the class for gentlemen's mounts rid
den by their riders, and a race aa suggested would settle tbis point besides
affording tbe spectatora an excellent
contest. Furthermore, a few match
races might be arranged for the day,
and Rosslanders afforded an excellent
afternoon's entertalnmdnt. Such Is
the concensus of opiuion amoung local
horsemen.
