Moyie Nawa..
From the Moris Leader-
True to the reputations gained by the
Moyie Miners' Ualon, their second annual ball last Thursday was crowned
with success, There waa nothing lacking; the committee, consisting of
Mesara. Wm. Mills, B. 0. Llvesly and
Cameron Clark, aaw that everything
waa provided for. Qood taste was displayed In decorating the hall. Tbe
charter waa placed at the head of the
ball and waa draped with bunting and
evergreens. Underneath were tbe
letters W. F. M. On one aide encircled
with a border were the worda "Welcome to Ah" and on the opposite side
were the miner's pick, shovel, hammer
neatly arranged. On the 18th of December, IBM. just two yeara ago last
Thursday, Moyie Miner's Ualjn No. 71
waa organised. The membership on
that date waa St; to-day It la considerably over the too mark. During the
two years tt haa paid out In sick benefits SI ,400, and haa now between S800
and tl.OOO In cash on hand and Investments. The nnlon has attained a standing In this community which can be
pointed to with pride. It haa never encountered tbe slightest trouble, and It Is
safe to aay that there la not a nnlon In
the entire province which haa more
harmonious relations with the employ-
era of Its members.

that Parks, Mitchell <fc C >.. were In tbe

which la contrary to law. Mr. Gurd
contended that the aaw mill was situated on a bay, not on running water, and
that a boom was used for the purpose
of preventing the sawdust from floating

Delay   in   Getting in
Everything Looks Lovely at the Smelter
Grounds and Wdrk la Progressing
Outlook Is Not Bright.
From the Moyie Leader.
Tbe present outlook for an early resumption of work at the St. Eugene
mine la not at all bright. Manager
Oronln bas returned from his trip to
California. Wnen asked yettetday aa to
tbe probable tltuatlon after the firat of
the year ba said It was anything but
promising. He aald the company had
kept quite a number of men employed
doing developement with the hope that
conditions would improve and tbat they
wonld be able to operate the mine at a
profit after the first of the year. These
hopes are now ahattered, at the price
of lead and sliver have been steadily
falling, and In his opinion It may be
considerable time before they again
reach the figures at which they were
during the year 1901. As a conaeqnence
ifter tbe first of the year tbe force at
the mine will be materially decreased.
At tbe annual meeting of tbe St.
Eugene Consolidated Mining Co., which
was held in Toronto last month, the
acting board of directors waa unanl
mously re-elected. Following la a list
of them: George Gooderham, T. G.
Blackstock, John A Finch,Georgr Sumner, E P Beaton, Jamia Cronln, J. C.
Drewry, W G Gooderham, A. E Gooder-
r am, W H. Beattie. Mr, Crontn was
re-elected manager.
Word waa received yesterday by
telegraph from Spokane by Foreman McKenale to push the work of
getting ont the timbers for the trestle
of the emelter sit* spurs. No time will
be lost In getting - the track ready so
that supplies may ba brought right np
to the many buildings now under construction Several cars of cement and
fire brick have reached cranbrook and
will be brought np to Marysville as soon
as they can be handled. The gravel Is
being placed on the ground for the concrete foundations, and the trenches for
the heavy foundations have all been
excavated, and tbla branch of the work
will be under headway in a few days.
Tbe frame for the sulphide house Is
now going np. This building will be
60 feet high and le located just east and
north of the roasting eheda. Work on
tbe other buildings is progressing
rapidly, and all of the structures are
now assuming shape. The office build
ing la nearly encloeed, and le going to
be an handsome addition to the eomp
any'a grounda. Each week now makes
a vast difference In the appearance of
the place, aod people who were familiar
with the conditions two weeks ago,
would be strangers now.
Naturally the people In Marysville
are greatly pleased wltb the condition
of affairs. They eee In these great
structures rising np with such careful
[r-clslou the baele of prosperity for
Maryaville and tbla part of the district
and they know tbat with the smelter
building, a new railroad under construction up tbe St Marjs Valley, tbe
North Star and Sullivan properties
running, and hundreds of men developing properties in the territory tributary to tbia town. Maryaville will be a
good place to tie to next summer and
for the future,
There will be money made in this
town next year, and people who fail to
get In on the ground floor will realize
when It la too late, what a mistake they
have made.
Fort Steele News.
From lhe Prospector-
Mr. Ralph Elton, well and favorably
known In Fort Steele, was married on
the 30th of November at Pincber Creek
to a Mlas Barmer, a yonng English lady
The happy couple will take up tbelr re».
Idence at Frank. N. W. T. We wish
them many years of happiness and
proa perky.
Doctor Kennedy, of Fort Macleod,
who was here as medical examiner for
the third contingent is an old friend of
Indian Agent GalbraUb. It la 33 years
since tbey met at Macleod and a great
change has taken place in the Koote-
nays aod the Northwest Territories.
We regreat to announce the death of
William L Tompkins, late teacher of
tbe Fort Steele public school, at Louisville, Kentucky, where he went for a
change of climate. Previous to his
leaving for Kentucky Mr.Tompklos was
at the Fort Steele hospital where he
was carefully attended by Dr. Brodle
and Nurse Ruth, and during his stay
there apparently was rapidly improving. Much against the wishes of his
medical attendant he decided to make
an effort to go to milder climate, and
on his way was obliged to rest at Fernie
for a week where he was under the care
of Dr Carson. Shortly after his arrtv-
val at Louisville he died, and It is
thought by his friends that the trip
there was too trying on his weak constitution. Mr. Tompkins was born near
Grafton, Ontario, and began life as a
newspaper reporter. He did work on
a few of the papers In Ontario, principally on the Trenton Conrler and the
Telegram, Toronto. Before coming to
British Columbia, he taught in several
of the achools of Ontario. Hla first
teaching experience In the Province
waa In the Fraser valley. He took
charge of the Fort Steele public school
as principal about two yeara ago and
proved hlmaelf faithful and painstaking.
His death Is universally regretted. He
was comparatively a young man of
about 30 years of age. He waa married
and hia wife left for Ontario a few
months ago to visit relatives.

The North Ster.
Tbe following circular letter has been
Issued by the board of directors of tbe
North S ar mine from Montreal- To
the share holders of the North Star
Mining Company, Limited: Gintleman,
yoor directors regret that difficulties
have arlaen with the miners on the
question of wager, which will result In
the temporary closing of the mine, and
the discontinuance of shipments for the
present. In consequence of tbe present
low price of lead, it haa been considered advisable to reduce the dividend to
118 per cent for tbe quarter ending
November SO. Tbla dividend la payable
on the 15th of December next. The
directors are glad to state that the
financial position of the company la
excellent. The company bas an accumulation of cash amounting to (330,000
wltb no liabilities, and a large plant
which haa been maintained In a high
state of efficiency. It is the Intention
of the directors as soon as the question
of wagea is satisfactorily arranged, to
continue vigorous exploration work for
the discovery of additional ore bodies,
which together wltb those now existing
will be available for future shipments."
Crow's Ncet Southern.
Late advices from the Crow's Nest
Southern say that construction Is making good progress. Grading is almost
finlahed on the portion of tbe line from
Jennings north to the International
boundary line, and track laying will
shortly be commenced.
North of the boundary line there haa
been some delay, occasioned principally
by reason of difficulties experienced in
getting the permission of tbe government for right away, etc. Now, bow-
ever, comfortable camps have been
erected and work la making good progress. It will take six months to finish the road on this side of the line.
Operatlone will be carried on all winter, as there will be but little snow or
frost to interfere. The contractors
claim that It la difficult to secure
enough men. They lay that they are
paying fair waget, hive comfortable
bank homes for the accommodation of
the men and that the food It plentiful
and of good quality. Owing to the
alien labor law men cannot be hrongnt
from Spokane and other cities to the
south of the line, and on the other hand
it costs too much to bring workmen
from eastern Cinada.—Fernie Free
The Copper situation.
Cooper opened In London on Dec.
27trj. at 7- 61 decline owing to the fears
of fresh selling in view of the expected

tons sold at 49 1 2 pounds to 50 1-4
pounds, During the afternoon 300 tons
were sold at from 50 1 4 poo.ida to 51.

Send The Tribune to your Friends
We cannot look Into tbe future and
probably it Is better for us that we
cannot, but we can, all of us, look back
over the past. At this time when the
year 1901 has passed by and when 1903
is just springing Into life It Is interesting to loo* back over the events that
have made history during the year just
paat. Nlnleen Hundred and One will
always be remembered as an eventful
year, because tt has been a year full of
action the world over. Let us review a
few of the events that have taken place
during tbe year of grace 1901 The
events that are without doubt the most
Important are those which plunged the
two greatest nations tn the world Into
tbe deepest mourning. Nineteen Hundred and One saw the death of the
rulers of two great Anglo-Saxon nations
tbe one from natural causes, the other
by the hand of an assattln. "Victoria
the good," died in 1901 after reigning
sixty years, and more over the British
Empire, and William McKlnley waa
shot, without a chance to defend himself, during his second term as president of the United States. The Anglo-
Saxon race has been In the turmoil of
war during the whole of 1901. Great
Britain In South Africa and the United
States in the Phllllpines Islands. Let
ns hope that 1903 will aee theae two
great nations at peace with the whole
world. The arts of peace have been
represented by the great expositions at
Glasgow and Buffalo. At both theae
great expositions Canada has more than
held her own not only as an agricultural and mineral country but aa a
manufacturing nation.
Science has made great studies.
Wireless telegraphy la an accomplished
fact, mesaagea having been transmitted
from Europe to this contenant, and by
the way, It is Interesting to remember
tbat Newfoundland was the first place
on the American continent to receive a
cable message from Europe and the
other day wes tbe first place to receive
a wireless message across the Atlantic.
Perhape not during 1903 but certainly
within a very few years that great
commercial route, the Panama Canal
will be an accomplished fact. A waterway that will bring all parts of the
world closer together, a work that is
undoubtedly the most Important science
the building of the Snex Canal.
Canada, during the paat year, hat made
rapid ttrldet at have tbe other British
Colonies. The tour of the Prince of
Wales, (then the Duke of Cornwall and
York.) has done great things towards
linking the Empire closer together.
Tho good feeling existing between the
people of Cantda and the cltliena of
the United States Is distinctly In evidence and is a good omen for the future
harmonious relation of thete two great
Britiah Colombia haa been tomewhat
hanoicapped by labor troublet and by
the low price of the minerals produced
In the province but happily both these
draw backs seem to be on tbe wane and
we mey, without being too sanguine,
look forward to great provincial developments In 1893.
South Eest Kootenay haa made
wonderful strides during the year just
past. No part of tbe district exists but
that thlt can be said of. Tbe placer
mines of Perry creek bave been developed until they are now on a paying bases. The mlnea of Wild Hone,
Tracy and other creekt on the Eatt
tide of the Kootenay bave been worked
during the year to advantage. Moyie
and the country tributary to It hat
thown signs of more riches and has
proved to tbe world that the St, Eugene,
great mine though It Is, la not the only
mine In Moyie country.
The North Star and Sullivan mlnea
have been workli g more or lett steady.
New placer ground haa been discovered
at Lamb Creek. Iron In paying quantities bas been located at Bull river and
on Baker mountain and many other
mineral developments have been re
Tbe past year has been a progressive-
year for the towns In the district.
Nearly all of which show a material
growth In tbelr population. Perhaps
the greatest event of 1901 waa the
birth of Maryaville, that sturdy Infant
just five weeke old that bids fair to
rival some of her old eistert in population and importance. Nlnteen Hundred
and One haa been an eventful year, we
know not what 1903 bu In ttore for
ut, but however that may be the publishers of Tbe Tribune wish the readere
of this paper and the people of Maryaville and the district a Happy New
North Star.
Tbe North Star will open up again
and run wltb a full force on Monday
th* 20th. This Is good news to tbe
people of the district. We hope to be
able to announce tbat tbe Sullivan and
St. Eugene will followed tult In tbe
near future.

Eriltoi-ljtl Memory.
Among magazine editors that particular kind of a memory which recognizes
im-trtntly any literary thing which it has
seen before is developed to the limit ot
its capacity. Very rarely can a story be
republished, even in a slightly garbled
form or after an Interval of many years
and not be recognized nnd spotted by
some outside editor, even if it has slipped
past the censorship of the stntT. The
method usually followed by people who
.attempt to pass off old stories as original
is to copy some practically unknown
story by a famous author, leave out a
little, add a little, nnd yet save enough
that is good to make their version stand
out from the ordinary run of the manuscripts which are declined every day by
the magazine editors.
Koine years ago one of the Inrger
monthlies published n poem by a well
known pool who died more thnn a century ago. As printed, it lind beert sent
in by an unknown contributor from the
west. This poem so struck the editor
thnt he printed it, surrounded with a
series of drawings by one of hiii best and
most expensive illustrators. When be
was informed by his friends of the true
origin of the poem, he made a resolution
to accept uo contribution from authors of
whom he had no personal knowledge, nnd
Tor tt year or two strictly maintained that
policy. A somewhat similar case occurred recenlly. when a puper iu this Btate
published a poem by Keats nnd duly
printed the poet's name beneath the title.
A number of western pnpers reprinted
the poem, giving credit to John Keats

Reception at the Bar.
With the approach of cold weather and
the closing of the Coney Island resorts
east sidedom resorts to the giving of
balls. Then in nearly every east side saloon the walls are decorated with placards announcing that tho "Merry Mod.*
nrchs" or some other popular organization "will give their annual ball at So-
and-so's hall ou the night of . Tickets
admitting gent and lady, $1."
A bull on the east side is a serious affair, especially to the floor committee. It
Is their annual appearance in full evening
dress, and the occasion is a grave, even a
trying, one. Besides, they have large and
ornate badges of otliee to wear.
At 10 o'clock in the evening the ballroom presents itself a wide, shiny space
hedged with gaping chairs, the balconies
which look upon it dressed with greens,
paper sunbursts nnd Hags, with probably
a crayon portrait of the founder or patron of the association beaming itl
length from a bower of sniilnx. On *
platform ut one end is a cluster of music
stands and perhaps a fat man or two
tentatively extracting tones from a 'cello
or French horn. In the rear of the chuir
rows on one side tables closely arranged
extend Into dimness, a patch of them Ic
strong light form an alcove which incloses a bar without end. Glasses arc
being noisily stacked upon it.
Singly, by twos nud In groups ths
guests of the ball arrive. A tall girl in •
dress too short before appears on tlw
edge of the floor, gazes shyly around one
then vanishes. Three youths in bluet
"cutaway coats" and white satin cravats.
with flat, wet hair, parade past lhe
chairs. One of them pushes auothei
abruptly against a pillar.
"What's the mutter wit' you ?" demands the victim querulously, and tbea
the three sent themselves at a table and
make fun of a waiter. Girls of all ages
in coveys drift down the alley behind the
chairs. Their costumes are striking and
collectively a discord in color. A stout
woman puffs along towing a pair of curious youngsters and followed by dutiful
daughters. She reaches one of the tables
and there goes into camp, issuing rations
of pretzels and a single glass of beer. A
steady stream flows through the door and
is dammed up at the edge of the floor,
which appears to be forbidden -ground.
Slowly they trickle off in pairs down the
sides of the room, and dots and dashes ot
people close up the chair Hue. Floor committeemen appear, all hurrying, with pale,
anxious faces. A slow waltz starts, heard
fiJntly at first, then loud and persuasive,
A couple begin to twirl in a corner; two
braver spin into the center of the floor;
others join them. Soon "the room Is twirling, and the ball is begun.
Tho waltz on the east side Is unique. It
consists mniuly in spinning around in one
epot, and progress is slow. Sometimes a
curious lope is introduced to the waltz
measure to facilitate change of spinning
ground, and occasionally there appear a
couple who can go all round the room In
a succession of whirls. But this Is not the
orthodox way. The whole movement on
tho floor is rotary. There is no blending
of motion, and the impression is that of a
multitude of horizontal windmills all going ut the same time.
When tlie waltz ceases, tho dancers
move in a solid mass toward the tables.
Frothing beer glasses coat the bar, nnd
there is a flying of white coated waiters.
Two or three more dance tunes are
played, nud thru begins n significant
gathering of the committeemen at the end
of the room. They nre mingling with a
group of women gowned gorgeously in
white and colors, while around them collects a watchful crowd. Gradually tho
group which is the center of attention
forms into n huddled Hue ot couples, and
the man iu the front rank looks back often. Then with a crash the band launches into a inarch, the line steps out sedately, uncoiling from the crowd, and the
"grand march" is on. This is n very serious ceremony and is performed with religious care to the conclusion of the last
When the march Is over, there is sometimes a speech by the president of the
association heard by a respectful ring,
but ignored by the crowd, which is now
jostling, running nnd swarming over the
floor uud about the tables. Girls gather
and giggle by the pillars and arc teased
by the boys, who push about in noisy
companies. Children race and sprawl.
Stout mothers banked against the walls
alternately laugh and fret over defiance
of their authority. Everywhere is the
waiter with dripping beer glasses ringed
about his lists. In tbe barroom there is a
continuous stag reception. A couple of
stout politicians with flushed faces are
holding n levee, und young men with political aspirations surround them, buy
beer for them und listen respectfully to
their utterances. Smoking is permitted
everywhere, and by midnight the lights
are mere luminous balls in the haze.
The ball is still gnyly going forward at
8 o'clock, but by 4 only a few couples nre
appearing on the floor, though ninny are
still seated at the tables. The floor committee, with their badges folded away in
their pockets and their shirt fronts soiled
and broken, hnve stolen nway at an hour
becoming to their dignity. Some of tbe
lights go out, aud the waiters bring fresh
rounds of beer reluctantly. The band bas
packed up its instruments and is now
liced along the bar resting from its labors. A popular song is started, and tbe
chorus is vigorous. A second song receives less ardent support. An unsteady
youth attempts n cake walk on the floor.
Then n large mnn with a forbidding countenance orders all the lights out, und the
bull is over.* *

' I would rather spend my life In a
penal settlement than he a lighthouse
keeper," declared a man to the writer
after a visit to the Bishop lighthouse,
off the Cornish coast. "A convict does
see a little of the world he Ilve3 In, but
a lighthouse keeper sees nothing but a
dreary expanse of water. I am not surprised lhat many of them should lose
their menial balance."
The visitor to the Bishop lighthouse
did not overcolor tlie picture. It waa
only the other day that one read of the
LongshlpS lighthouse, also off the const
of Cornwall, having been completely
iFolntcd. for many weeks In consequence
of fearful storms. The keepers had
been reduced to smoking coffee, bops
and tea leaves, though, fortunately,
they had not wnuted for food.
The keepers of tlie famous Eddystooe
lighthouse not Infrequently find themselves In a similar predlcnmcnt. In a
gale the waves that buffet themselves
agnlnst this wonderful monument to
the engineering skill of the country are
of such stupendous magnitude that
they rise to a height of 200 feet and
•weep right over the lantern. To those
cooped up Inside the sound of these
waves Is like that of a battery of guns
at close quarters. "At such times the
house shakes like a tree with a man

of his life there.

shows the various compartments, commencing nt the bottom with lhe water
tank'; then the entrance, the two. oil
receptacles, the storeroom, the crane,
the living apartment, the low light, the
bedroom and the service room In the
order named. Formerly 'only two
keepers were employed In the lighthouse, but a grim Incident resulted In
their number being Increased. One of
the^two men died. So"" fierce ran the
seas thnt the remaining keeper could
not get the body of his late comrade to
the shore. For n month the tempestuous weather continued, nnd for a
mouth the surviving keeper lived alone
with the body as his only companion.
He wns afraid to cast It into the
waves, for he might be accused of murder.
Keepers of rod: lighthouses do not
last long. The Incessant pounding of
the waves against the blinding, lhe
loneliness, the wnnt of fresh air and
exercise reduce tlie men to a state of
nervousness that Is sometimes pitiful
to behold. They require n fortnight's,
leave every six weeks, but this liberal
allowance does little to improve their
physical state. A medical man whose
duty It Is to pay periodical visits to
one of these lighthouses confesses tha!
there is no remedy for the ills peculiai
to the keepers except retirement.

Some   of   tlio    Amusing   Adventures   Kri-

Told by the Lute Kev. H. It. Hawels.
This late Rev. H. H. HawolS, tlie
highly-gifted nnd popular incumbent
of St. James', Mnrylebone, used to
tell an amusing story of a strange
old couple who for many months
were regular attendants at his
Plainly dressed and insignificant in
appearance, they were quite content
to take obscure scats at the back of
the gallery, until by accident it. was
discovered that the modest and retiring couple were the rich and e»
centric Duke of ~ and his wife.
When on tho Sunday following the
discovery of their rank they took
their usuul seats at the back of tho
'gallery, one of the officers of tho
church went to them and, with a
profound bow, begged to be allowed
to conduct "their graces" to a more
suitable part of the church.
The detected Duke looked for a
moment nt his wife with dismay on
his face, and then, saying: "Come
on, Sarah; they've found us. out,"
walked out. of the church, with her,
nnd never entered its doors ngain.
Of all tho Jtoyaltics of Europe' not
one loves* more to escape from tlio
circumstances ot his rank than the
Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir
to tlio throno of Austro-Hungnry;
and his happiest days.are spent in
long, solitary rambles in tho country, dressed liko a peasant, and fro»
terniziui; with ensual pedestrians and
wayside innkeepers.
One day last summer he was hob*
nobbing with tho host of a small inn
on the road between Ncustadt and
Oldenburg, when a well-to-do tradesman of the latter town drove up and
bidding him keep nn eye on his
horse, entered the inn for refreshment. When ho emerged a few minutes later, ho gave a small coin, a.
krone, to tho young man who was
dutifully holding tho reins, and who
equally dutifully thanked him.
A few weeks later the tradesman
wns walking along the Bingstrosse,
In Vienna, when a Royal equipage
dashed: past with an escort of cavalry. Of tho two occupants of the
Imperial carriage hq recognized ono
as his Emperor, Francis Jo soph, nnd
the other, to his amazement and
consternation, was the peasant to
whom he had offered a krono for
holding his horse.
M. Cnslinir-Pcrier, when he waa
President of the French Republic,
took a groat delight in dressing aa
an ouvrier .or ns a clerk, and escaping from the ceremonial of his dally
lifo for long bicyclo rides in tho
country. On one occasion ho wns
cycling near Fontsur-Solno whon ho
halted at a small wayside Inn and
asked for luncheon.
"I have nothing in the house,"
tho landlady said: "but the best
thing you can do is to ride to tho
butcher in the village you passed
through a mile down tho road and
bring back a kilogramme of steak."
This was an adventure after tlio
President's own heart: and "mounting his.bicycle again he quickly returned with an appetizing steak,
and was soon eating ono of tlw most
enjoyable meals of his life.
One of the best of these stories is
told of M. Le Royor, when he was
President of the French Senate.
V/hen. during one vncation, ho was
traveling with M. Lepore, the
French "Homo Secretary." in Ttaly.
the President amused himself by
posing as his companion's valet.-
Whenevor the travelers, alighted wt
an hotel M. Hoyer would explain to
the manager that his master was
a man of high station, Minister of
tlio Interior, in fact; and lie would
busy himself in seeing to tlie rooms, ■
looking after tlio luggage, and generally discharging tho duties of a
zealous servant.
As a very natural consequence M, -
Lepore was treated with tlio utmost
deference at attention, whilo M.
Royer had to be content with tho
attention duo to Ids assumed character; but when tlio bills wcro presented, and the President escaped
for four francs a day. while tho
Minister had to pay twenty, the
"valet" felt amply rewarded for his
amiable deception.

A good story is told by a well-
known clergyman, at present in tho
dioceso of Christ Church, New Zealand. Somo timo ago ho wns in

his hands full of clerical work of

arrived no children could be found,
and tho ceremony had to bo postponed till next time.

i'lie Tall Story That la Told of a Fa.
rlaiun tionrmet. r
Paris Is par excellence the city of
gourmets and cranks, and many a
story concerning them has added to the
gayety of the nations. Here Is one
of the latest, told by a well known
French head waiter: One of the regular customers of a famous Parisian
restaurant used to be a short, thln,-
shy and shabbily dressed man whose
name no one knew, but who gave out
thnt he was a butter dealer, for which
reason be was ended the butter man at
the restaurant in question.
He ate next to nothing, but his soup
tureen, filled with a soup specially prepared for him,, was.always put before
hint. He took a few. spoonfuls and
had It token away. Next came, a
whole1 fillet of beei, from which he
cut the tiniest slice. Then followed
four quails or a large chicken, of which
he ate one mouthful, together with
two lettuce leuves aud one radish. His
dessert was tour grapes—never a single one more—and n cup of coffee. A
bottle of the best claret and another
of lhe 'jest champagne were served
Willi the repast, but ho only wetted
his lips with a drop from them and let
them go. Ho took two of these monis
a day, nnd tbe price for each meal was
120 francs.
^ But this wns not all. Every time
the butter plan got up from his extraordinary meal lie gave 40 francs lo
the head waiter, who put his food on
Ills plate, since the guest did not like
to bundle spoons or dishes; 20 francs
.to the waiter, 10 francs to the woman
cashier and C francs to the porter.
Thus each meal came to 200 francs.
The head waiter of tho restaurant often did slight errands for blm, buying
his cigars, etc., und took them to the
Grand hotel, where the butter man
lived. The little old man would then
open tho drawer ot n wardrobe filled
with heaps of bank notes of from 100
francs to GOO franca In value and
with an enormous mass of goldpleccs.
"Pay yourself." said the owner, and
the head waiter did so, putting the
bills before his patron, who never
deigned to look at them.
One dny the mysterious mlllionniri
went away and was uever seen again.

Writing a Book.
Tho following confession of n novelist as to the method In which ho wrote
one of his books Is not without Interest. He had had the story outlined in
bis notebook for a long time and ought
to have been able to write It, but did
not feel able. Then one dny he happened to think of It ngnlu nnd saw, almost ns If It had beeu a Btage scene,
the little tableau with which the book
was to close—one of those ends which
arc also a beginning. So be began to
work and In a short time had completed the first three chapters. Then, for
no ronton that he can give, there wns a
Jump, and he wrote the chapters which
are now numbered XXI and XXII, the
last In the book. Then be went back
and wrote straight on from IV to'XVII,
The story bad been with him so long
thnt It was the easiest thing In the
world to write It, and so he got through
this port of the work wltb remarkable
celerity. In the eighteenth chapter
nothing happens. Every day for a
fortnight he rose, breakfasted and tried
• to write tbat chapter; every night he
tore- up a big pile of manuscript which
he knew to be hopelessly bad. Then
he got desperate. The chapter should
be written and should stand, whether
good or bad. He wrote It and left tbe
house because It was bad and he had
resolved not to tear. It up. , Next day
he wrote chapter XIX, and in the morrow he rewrote chapter XVIII and
somehow or other contrived to get Into

Following the Report of G. H. Kent's  Cure of Bright's Disease
by Dodd's Kidney Pills, An Ottawa Paper Calls Attention to Another Remarkable  Cure.
-   From the Ott  awa Citizen.
A representative of the Citizen recently leurned of a remarkable cure
of a well-known resident of Ottawa
who has suffered for years with a
terrible .allliction. The well-known resident is Mr. S. A. Cassidy, ami the
affliction was stone in tho kidneys.

When old residents of Ottawa are

and took an active part in all linos
of sport. Today ho Is forty years
old, and tips the scale nt 250
The intimate friends of this robust
man have known that for the past
ten years he has been a sufferer from
a disease that bullied mcdicul skill,
und that he has lingered between life
and death on many occasions since
ho was first attacked. At tho initial
stage of tbe disease he was taken
with violent, cramps in the loft side
of his stomach, and tho boat skilled
physicians could afford him wry little relief.   The attacks were of about
two weeks' duration, and when he
luf j his bed he was reduced in flesh
and was almost a physical wreck-
Rome years ago an eminent physician diagnosed his disease as. "Stone
iu the Kidney," but even after the
diagnosis the physicians were unable
to eifect a permanent cure. Today
ho is a well man. Ho hus found a
raui-.dy that hus banished the disease
—a remedy that has cured wheie
medical aid suis ineffectual.. The
remedy is Bodd's Kidney Pills, und
Mr. Cassidy feels so elated over his
re'ease from the excruciating suffering that he hus given the following
statement over his own siguuturu 10

Tho .Story of a Young (Jirl Who Suffered from HouduchcH, Dizziness
ami Fainting Spells—Her Health
Became so Bud That She Wuh

Miss Catherine McLellan is a
young lady well known in Charlotte-
town, P.E.I., and greatly esteemed
among her acquaintances. Like so
many other young ladies throughout
the land, Miss McLellan fell a victim to anaemia, or poorness of
blood, and although several medicines were tried, she found nothing
to help her until she began using J>r.
Williams' Pink Fills for Palo People.
Miss McLellan tells the story of her
illness as follows : "J am now IS
years of age, and for a considerable
time suffered much from anaemia.
My blood hud almost turned to water, and I was very weak p,nd pale ;
in fact could not undergo the lc&st
exertion. My appetite foiled me ; I
suffered from headaches; if I stooped
1 would become dizzy, and frequently I suffered from fainting spells, I
tried several kinds of medicine and
doctors prescribed for mo, but instead of getting better 1 was gradually growing weaker, and eventually
had to discontinue going to school.
About this lime I read the testimonial of a girl whose condition was
similar to mine, who hud been cured
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I then
decided to try these pills, and have
overy reason to bo gratified that 1
did so, as they have completely restored my health- Every ono of the
symptoms that had made, my life so
mi&OrablQ have disappeared, u»d I
am now enjoying as good health as
any girl of my age could wish, and
T shall always have a good word Lo
say for Dr, Williams' Fink Fills.
Miss McLellan further stated that
while she was not desirous of publicity' in matters of this kind, she
nevertheless felt that her experience,
if known might be tho means of
bringing health to some other sufferer, and it is this very praiseworthy motive that hns induced her
to give, the above statement for publication.
Dr. Williams' Fink Fills make rich,
red blood, and give tone to the
nerves. It is because of this that
they bring bright eyes, rosy cheeks
and light footsteps to girls who
have been weary, pale and listless
and had begun to feel that life was
a burden. Fnle and anaemic girls
everywhere should give these pills
a fair trial as they are- certain to
restore health and strength. See
that the full name "Dr. Willinms'
Fink Fills for Palo People" is on
the wrapper around every box. Sold
by all dealers, or sent postpaid at
50c a box, or six boxes for S12.0O,

cino Co,, Brockville, Ont.

My Electric Belt has restored health and strength to thousands of
nervous, debilitated, and pain-worn men and women. Vou also can
be cured if you will grasp the opportunity I offer. Read what the
cured say. Electricity, as furnished by my Belt, cures by giving
back to the weakened nerves, muscles and organs the vitality they
have lost, reducing inflammation, developing the full vigor of health
and removing tie effects of overwork, exposure to weather, and lonj;
To those who have trusted and be.*n betrayed by seductive promises ; to those who
have swallowed pailfuls of pills and liquid medicines without result except a damaged
stomach and increased pain and weakness, and to those who have worn so-failed
electric belts, which either burned and blistered the body ot gave no electricity, I
offer a positive cure by means of my Electric Beit. It gives a stronger current than
guaranteed not to burn nor blister.
I am not giving Belts away. I am offering to cure first and be paid alter you are cure.l. I have an
Electric Belt which DOES CURE, and any honest person who will secure ma can have my Belt and pay
me when cured.    Can anything be fairer tiiati that ?
SPECIAL NOTICE—If yon have an old belt which has blistered you ur gave uo electricity, 1 will allow
you In exchange half the price of mine.
