and the mountain range on tbe main
line, met at the Cranbrook hotel in- this

The Aurora Mine at Moyie
a Winner.
General   News   of   Different   Properties
Throughout  the   Whole
Moyie Leader: Moyie has certainly a
great mine in the Aurora, and if tbe
price of lead continues to advance as at
present it will not be long until tbis
property will be shipping ore and paying
dividends. It is estimated tbat already
some $6000 have been expended on development work on this group which
consists of five full claims. The No. I
tunnel ia now in 325 feet. From this
there are two cross cuts to the west, one
40 feet in length and the other 35 feet in
length. These are running at an angle
from the main tunnel and on separate
veins, Tben tbere is a shaft down 40
feet. Tbis is on the vein and the ore
has averaged from 18 inches to four feet
iu width all the way down.
Tbe Aurora is directly across tbe lake
and on tbe same lead as the St. Eugene.
It has more work done and looks better
today than did the Lake Shore group at
the time it was purchased by the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate. Tbe Aurora is owned by Thos. Rider, O. J. Johnson and Capt. J. B. Sanborn,
Wild Horse Placers.
Fort Steele Prospector: During the
past year, especially the winter months,
there was a great deal of prospecting go-
ing on among the placers on Wild Horse.
Tbe work done bas demonstrated tbe
permanency and depth of the immense
gravel deposits, and proved that the yellow metal abounds in paying quantities.
The interesting feature is that not less
than six companies will work on the
creek as soon as the season opens.
Dave Griffith, who came down from
Wild Horse on Thursday, reports that
good pay gravel bas been struck in tbe
tunnel now being run to strike bed rock
in tbe deep diggings on the creek. He
brought down a beautiful specimen of
placer gold obtained in tbe face of the
tunnel. E J. Cann has also a quantity
of fiue gold obtained from panning.
Gold In Smelter smoke.
Omaha Correspondence of New York
World: Two years ago, while workmen were making repairs to the roof
of a building tn the Omaha plant of the
American Son ltlng and R*Antng company, they were amazod to find the
shingles and boards covered wi.h atoms
of metal. One of the boards was taken
to the assayer, who burned It, retorted
the ashes and imparted thesurtllng In*
format.on that the metal was composed
of gold, silver, lead aud copper.
Other boards were burned with like
results, and tbe mystery grew more
preplexlng. Finally some one standing
ou the roof of the building had occasion
to brush from his coat sleeves flakes of
soot which were dropping from the
great, rolling clouds of smoke and gas
emerging from the giant stacks near by.
Sheets of common cheesecloth, cut to
fit tbe Interior of the stacks, were prepared. Through the centre of the sheets
were cut holes large enough to allow the
necessary free draught. Tbe sheets were
fastened at various heights In the stacks
and allowed to remain in position for
several weeks. When removed and
subjected to treatment the chemist produced gold, silver, copper and lead worth
hundreds of dollars.
More cheesecloth catchers were Inserted In the smokestacks, a few feet
apart, one above the other, from the
base 10 the crown; a aeml-clrcular steel
house was built, extending from the
furnaces to the base of tbe atacks; a
blower was placed In position to cool
and force the smoke and gas through tbe
steel house aud up tne flues, la Its
passage the smoke deposited In the steel
house hundreds of pounds of grime,
which was allowed to gather and pack
for six months, Tbat of the grime
which, managed to travel through the
circular house and reach the flues waa
caught by tbe cheesecloth, very small
portion, practically, escaping to the
Wuen the steel house became filled
with packed soot— li ghly infl imrnable—
the mass was touched off with a common match and allowed to burn for
several days, after which It waa found
that there still remained in the enclosure many tons of a peculiar dead-looking cinder, hard and worthless appearance. This cinder was run through
the furnaces, receiving treatment in
the same manner as the original ores,
aud readily yielded its precious wealth.
Dating January the Omaha plant
gathered a six months' 'smokehouse
and cheesecloth harvest," receiving 500
tons of cinders, which yielded more
than S25 000.
Fifty thousand dollars per year scattered over Omaha lo smoke! That's
what It amounted to in twenty yeara.

Mr. Allan, of Northport, Wash , a
mining man of varied experleece, is In
town. He thinks well of tbe country
and the prospects of Mirysvllle, and
made this statement to a number of
men one day this week: 'Let me tell
you one thing gentlemen, and that is
that the lines for tbe construction of
this smelter, the source of tbe money,
the ultimate intention of the syndicate
were all arranged before a shovel of
earth was turned over on this ground.
The smelter will be built, ot that there
can be no question, and If the mine has
the body of ore that has been reported
by tbe experts who have examined, the
smelter will be a success and Maryaville
will be a prosperous town You" can't
get away from that preposition."

Duught n Lot,

Everything    Point*)    to    11     Ilusy    and
Prosperous   Summer
Marysville bis undoubtedly gone a
head during the last month or two,wItb
a rapidity seldom seen even in a western town. ThU growth will without
out doubt be greater in from thirty to
forty days from tbe time of the present
writing. Tbe early spring is not a good
season for growth, so far as towns are
concerned, for the reason that the thaw
ing snow and changeable weather
make building operations well nigh lm*
With regard to smelter building,
where a great deal of brick, mortar and
cement, are used tbe situation ia even
worse but even in spite of this we bave
the same story to tell. Work Is progressing with despatch and In a thorougly
workmanlike manner on tbe Marysville
smelter. Within the next month or so,
the situation In M a'rysyllle in tbe matter of workmen will be considerable
changed. We will venture to say that
within from thirty to forty days from
100 to 150 men will be employed on the
construction of tbe smelter. Witbin a
very few days, now, many car loads of
machinery and Iron will be received at
Marysville which will mean tbe employment of many machinists, blacksmiths
and Iron workers In addition to a large
staff of carpenters, masons and brick
layers. All this will help the growth
of tbe town and as spring gives place
to summer a large number of homes
will be erected on this townslte. Men
will come to work and these men will
bring their families and the fact of
them bringlog tbeir families will cause
the building of homes which is the backbone of any community. There never
was a townslte either In Eist Kootenay
or In any other part of this province
that was such an Ideal one for a home.
The benches to the north of the town-
site, the lota on the west side ot Mark
Creek aod tbe twenty seven acres to
the south east of the town are all magnificent tullding sites, places on whlcn any
man wanting a permanent abode would
be glad to build. Of course scenery is
not the whole thing nut when we add
to the perfect site the abuudance of
water and wood and the almost perfect
climate it Is hard to see that one wants
Marysville made her start In the late
fall and owing to the season of the
year, one would have been led to suppose tbat growth would be almost Impossible, Such was not the cise, however. Mirysvllle In spile of all obstacles
has steadily grown, lu a very few
weeks she will undoubtedly be oue of
the leading towns of the district.
The fact of a smelter, a refinery and
lead works of various kinds being erected lu Marysville Is proof positive tbat
we are bound to bave a good town here
because theae various Industries will
of necessity employ a large number of
men and consequently a good town,
a good pay roll town will be the result.
A good pay roll town 1» a town to
which capital Is attracted because a
regular monthly pay roll means steady
business lor tbe merchant and trader
and consequently good business for
everybody else concerned. Marysville
will be this kind of a town, a regular
tin bucket town, working man's
town and therefore the best
kind of a        town        In        which
to live. Marysville is all right and
those who are fortunate enough to bave
property in this town are to be congratulated—because sbe Is a winner atd
will undoubtedly show a large profit to
property holders tu the near future.

A Story of 1825 and 1900
IN AC :cst, 1000.
Under ihe afternoon sun tho restless
waters oi San Kmnciseo buy flung dia-
mouds and opals at such kutunu eyes as
eliaiued to look on them.
Two youug people who Btrolled down
to the Presidio beach, however, had no
glances to spare fur anything so commonplace as diamonds and opals. For
Lieutenant Anderson was gazing into the
depths til' the great, soft black eyes of
Miss Pachita de Sola, nnd Miss Pachltll
de Sola rcas looking up into the ardent
blue ones « f Lieutenant And -son, She
seemed t<> like it.
The tall young soldier with the fair
hair, broad shoulders and sijuare, manly
Saxon face hail nnt been long released
from th" hard work and harder restraint
of West Point,, and in his new freedom
of army life went at things wltb an energy or desire that was quite irresistible.
Miss Pachita de Sola found it so, -is had
half a dozen Other girls within ns many
months. It wns a wholly serious business
with the lieutenant this time, though.
tie had been in California but a few
weeks, aud litis daughter of an ancient
tbottgll decayed Spanish family, ns American in education and thought ns himself,
was ravishing in her novelty. Altogether
feiuiuiuoi I'acliita, nt one moment childlike and clinging; the next worldly, witty
nnd mocking; then, with the lids hiding
those lovely, big eyes of hers, her wholo
aspect suggested—especial)v to a lieutenant with ample means to marry—possibilities of tenderness unspeakable.
No wouder that when Miss Pachita
permitted Lieutenant Anderson to gaze
down into her eyes and returned an nn-
swerlng look, giving a little sigh, too, his
head went nfter his heart, which had
been lost for an eternity—that is to say,
for two terrific, sleepless nights.
Rut the young lady was discreet, and,
gently clasping his fingers, removed them
from her waist, saying demurely:
"Don't he foolish, John. Somebody
may be looking."
This in -h city nnd In full sight of the
ever vigilant garrison struck John as being not Improbable,
Instant iu action, as became a soldier,
Lieutenant Anderson executed a Hank
movement on a sand bank and seated
Miss de Sola in its lee, on a lurge, water
whitened, sun dried log of driftwood.
Then this consummate tactician repeuted
the original attack with entire success.
"Pachita, oh, my darling!" breathed
the ecstatic lieutenant, straining her to
his side nud immediately showing u disposition to put a knee upon the beach.
"Well, John?" and the smile of love
nnd gratified vanity that smote bis eyes
blinded them.
"Name the day, oh, Pachita; I cannot
live till you do!"
- Pachita pursed her full, red lips, puckered tin? midnight eyebrows and considered profoundly, digging deep into the
sand with his cane tho while.
"The dny, my own love—the day,"
gasped John.
"Dear me," Miss de Sola exclaimed
suddenly, "what a beautiful shell!"
"Blast the shell!" cried Lieutenant Anderson,  reaching   for  what  she  hnd   unearthed, to cast it wrathfully out among
the unnoticed diamonds and opals.
Hut he was restrained in wonder.
IN AUGUST, 1925.
The same sun wns enriching tbo dancing waters of the same bny with diamonds and opals. A young couple who
Strolled down to the Presidio beach ad-
mi.ed the view very much, and Senorita
Pnchlta de Sola had no occasion to remind the lieutenant by her side that
somebody might be looking. Lieutenant
.*Tunn de Eel t enn din would have liked
greatly to coll his arm about lhat slim
waist, bnt did not dare, though there was
only a small and sleepy garrison and no
lily nt nil behind them—only the padres
and Indians at the mission Dolores, far
nver the sand hills, and u cabin or two
down nt the embarendero, entirely out of
j-lght, Pachita de Sola was niece of
Commnndnnto Don Luis Antonio Arguel-
lo, and though he, Lieutenant Juan de
Echeaudlo wus a nephew of Don Jose
Maria, of the same name, one, even
though an nristocrnt, has under all circumstances to show proper respect for
his commanding officer. Besides, the
Senorita Pnchltn had twice refused his
friendly offered hand. It was bestowed
lipop Ensign Tlburclo Memlez at Monterey, though this was not known to a certainty nt the Presidio.
Lieutenant Juan de Hchenmlin and
Senorita Pachita de Sola walked leisurely
to the little wharf where that wonderful
vessel, constructed hut reeeutly by it
wandering British sailor, lay'preparing
for n voyage to Snusalito, four leagues
distant. It was a marvelous boat, with
oars and n sail, and capable of accommodating no less than six persons', Don
Luis Antonio Aj'guello himself had commanded her in person on the dozen passages which she had made to the opposite
above for timber. Previous to the creation of this extraordinary ship, which annihilated distance and obliterated time,
timber was hard to get from Corte de
Madera. Soldiers were sent around by
way of San Jose, armed with axes, who
crossed the strait tt Cnrquinez on rafts,
and In 1 he circuit of seventy leagues encountered hardships ond consumed weeks.
And the timber was brought over by
Chief Martin, un aborigine given to cruising on u float of lugs and titles, who alone
knew the winds ami currents of the bay.
It was but a matter of a day now to sail
over for the timber nnd return with it.
Corporal Pedro Sanehez had made all
the voyages with the comiuaudantc nml
rated now ns a superior navigator, his
marine fame being denr to him. Don
Luis had swollen him with pride by placing him in command for this one trip.
His enlargement became perilous when
Lieutenant Echenndla suddenly proposed
to Scnoritn Pacbltn lhat they make the
voyage, and flu-, being young und
thoughtless, consented.
I'-rave ('orpot'ul Sanchez sailed the
Mcjlco superbly as far ns Angel islnnd.
descanting eloquently on the nit and
mystery of seamanship. Issuing to his
crew or threo soldiers sundry orders lu
n commanding voice of thunder, he pre-
pared to pass the point.
Aln-s, an eastern wind came whistling
through the treacherous Raccoon strait,

swore nt Corporal Pedro Sanchez, but
profanity, though frequently an adjunct
to navigation, is not of use In Imparting
knowledge thereof.
So out to sea they drifted, far out, almost to tbe Farullones.
For eight days and nights tbey were as
a chip on the waves, the Raccoon (usti
having mapped  the  mps( and -cnfrla^
away the sail.    Corporal Pedro, famous
as n mariner, bad forgotten to bring oars*
Senoiita de Sola gave herself up to
Mary, mother of CJod. as did the corporal
and the three men in the bow, who passed the hours in shuddering prayer.
But Lieutenant Juau hud a soldier's
Ou the second day he drew his sword,
and at its point the men yielded such
food and wuter as the boat contained.
These he bestowed where his body was
between them and recapture.
Tbe corporal Pedro, though a fool and
unfortunate, was loyal. With him the
lieutenant kept watch and watch, aud
through nil those awful eight days and
nights (by my pen, it is true tbat the
bout was gone tbat long, us you may read
in Hitte)l's "History of California") the
Senorita de Sola wanted for neither food
nor drink, and the delicacy of Lieutenant
Juau would have brought tears of gratefulness to vany woman's eyes. He did
wonders, as tradition has handed down,
with cloaks and coats and stray bits of
rope to cabin the lady.
On the eighth day—sincere prayer is
ever nnswered—a blessed wind sprung up
from the west and, tide assisting, blew
the Mejieo bnck through the (ioldeu
Gate. The cruising chief Marin, on his
Mile float, was sent by Providence to tow
Iter to the Presidio wharf, where tha
commandant and the cheering garrison
uwaited tho return of the lost to life—tho
ones saved by an unquestionable miracle.
Tlie padres bore the lesson home In many
a sermon. *
As tho Senorita de Sola rose lu the
stern to disembark she tottered from
weakness and agitation. Lieutenant Juau
stretched out au arm nnd preserved her
from a ducking. She guve a little
scream, not nt th-^ public embrace, but
because in throwing up ber smull brown
hands she had broken a slender gold
chain thnt hung about her neck—broken
it, und over into the deep water it went,
together with a locket that had rested on
ber virgin bosom.
"My dears," said Commandant Don
Luis Antonio Arguello, when they had
refreshed themselves at his quarters and
related their udventures—"my dears, I
think that under all the circumstances
the best thing you can do Is to get married, and at once."
"I'm with you," exclaimed Lieutenant
Juan de Kcheandia in Spanish, opening
his arms.
And Senorita Pachita de Sola crept
timidly into them, hiding her lovely,
blushing face upon his happy, weather
beaten breast.
Lieutenant John Anderson was restrained from throwing the abnlone shell
into the bay, after his indefensible language concerning it, because imbedded
under a transparent, overlying, iridescent
deposit be beheld an open golden locket,
showing the face of a handsome young
mnn, evidently Spanish.
Miss de Sola, excited, took It from him,
scrutinized it intently, looked up with
sparkling eyes und pointed a slim, triumphant, olive finger at a name beneath
the miniature.
"There," she cried, "grandma did love
that Monterey ensign, though she always
denied it!"
"But Pachita—Pachita, darling, do
name the day," pleaded Lieutenant Anderson all a-throb.
"Oh, bother!" impatiently returned
Miss de Sola, absorbed again in the aba-
lone.   "Name it yourself."

Work of Blind Sculptors.
There have been several cases recorded
in which famous sculptors have been
blind. Dr. Vidol, the well known French
sculptor, was blind, lie made a special
study of animals, surrounding himself
with pets ot all kinds, which ho would
fondle until he wns able to reproduce them in clay with a skill that surpassed any of his contemporaries. On one
occasion, in order that he might make a
true model of a lion, he obtained permission from the proprietor of a menagerie
to enter (accompanied by the tamer) n
cage containing u magnificent specimen
of the king of beasts, which he stroked
and caressed until he had acquired au
exact conception of its shape and mien.

prevent their getting out a siugle sound,
the conductor had jammed a cork into
their instruments, or, rather, the instruments they carried. So thnt they were
players nud yet uot players; they counted

Perhaps 1 ought not to tell this story,
for it redounds ltlh* to the credit "f man's
■?ex. However, it is a good story all the
same, ko here it is:
The chief events occurred at Mme.
Boussel ill's ("tinny hnit'O. near La
Rocbebillero, in a Wild, densely woodi'd
country where hunt lug h the chief aiuuse*-
inenl of the lubnbitttmn. The house is
one of the best I know, and Mme. !l*uis-
selin bnd added to its attractions ly ink-
iu?' her young niece Madeleine, who bud
just lost her parents, to live with her.
Madeleine hail no fortune. Ij.ii she was
divinely pretty. She had those soft, mild
eyes that go KtruTght to your heart, and
the mostchnrmlng and indescribable air of
delicacy, refinement and nflVeiioiiaieness.
She was, imbed, by far loo tempt lug a
morsel to put under the very claws, so to
speak, of thnt scoundrel Louis, Mme.
Itousseiiu's sou, who had developed from
an incorrigible spoiled child Into ti man of
rough manners aud violent emotion-;, as
a result of his life in the woods and his
constant associnlkiu with lours. Although he was far too stupid to appreciate Madeleine as she deserved, he was yet
strongly nltrae-ted bj  ber beauty.
The girl's frank coillcmpt and dislike
made him furious, aud before long he became jealous iih we.I. Por, though Madeleine had no feeling but nvei i 1:1 for her
blackguard of a cousin, she <!, 1 not extend thnt sentiment to men in general.
Certainly nol to one man in particular,
Edmond Rennud.
Edmond 'was u handsome yo:;!h and
fully capable of appreciating Mndeleino's
character ns well as her beauty. So,
when he came home nfter completing bis
legal studies in Paris, he fell In love Willi
her at once. At ehiiri.li he never took his
eyes off her faee, aud on weekdays he
hunted the vicinity of the Ibuisselin
house in the hope of getting n stolen
glimpse of her beautiful features, lie
wns very happy in this una vowed love,
the more so that Madeleine's conscious
look, blushes nnd air of embarrassment
plainly told him thnt his feeling wns returned.
He wns emboldened to make a format
proposition of marriage. This wns
promptly rejected by Mme. Konsselin,
and Edmond's parents also had objections to offer 011 account of Madeleine's
luck of fortune. Mme. Konsselin gave
her niece's youth as the ground of hot refusal, but in reality she was obeying the
suggestion of her son, whom Madeleine's
obvious attachment to his rival had made
more furious than ever.
And now the story becomes dramatic.
Edmond remained in the country during
half of the winter, his love only increased
by obstacles, until he was forced to choose
between two plans submitted to him by
his father. „ He must either return to
Paris or accept a colonial post which was
offered to him. At all events, he must
lenre the spot, and forthwith.
Madeleine on her return from church
one Sunday found a note iu her muff.
There were only a few passionate lines.
in which Edmond assured her ot his love
and begged for c meeting in which she
could tell him whether it was returned or
not. If she loved him, he would wait for
her; if not, he would expatriate himself,
efface himself forever. But he must have
on answer, if only a word. He would
steal into her garden thnt evening, conceal himself behind the big snowman
which the gardener's sous had erected,
and there wait patiently for her —for
hours, if necessary. If she did uot come
at all, it would mean "no," and he would
He carried out his programme, but the
snowman did not concent him from the
sharp eyes of a servunt, who reported the
matter to Louis Bousselin.
"Hiding, you say?" Louis asked.
"Yes, sir; behind the snowman, like his
shadow, opposite the house, which he is
watching as if expecting some one. At
first 1 thought he was a thief, hut on
coming nearer I recognized him. What
shall I do?'
"Nothing.   You may go."
"Ah. my line fellow," Louis said t"-
himself, "so you come aud put yourself in
my hands, do you?"
Rousselin was on very good terms
with himself that evening. A successful
boar hunt nnd an excellent luncheon hud
conspired tu make him more animated
than usual. There was u wicked li:;lit in
his eyes, the reflection of a diabolical
thought that had crossed his brain. He
went up stairs, musing. At (he first landing he 8tnw>ed and stood watching the
door of Madeleine's room, lie suspected
that she knew who was hiding behind the
Assuming n careless air nnd whistling,
he approached a collection of weapons

He wns trying the lock when Madeleine
"Beastly weather for a walk, Madeleine," |te said.
Madeleine stopped in confusion. After
a long conflict with herself her lender
compassion for Edmund, combined wit);
the fear of losing him forever, hnd decided her to go to the rendezvous, und now
she found herself confronted by her detested cousin.
"You had bettor tnke a wrap, if you
must go," sneered Louis; "overshoes, too,
would not be amiss for a tramp in the
"What ninkes you think I am going
out?"    '
"The bright gleam in your pretty eyes,
the rich color of your checks und the violent beating of your heart—I can almost
hear it. But you will be very foolish to
run the risk of taking cold in the off
chance of finding n lover out there in the
Btiow. It is too cold a night for lovers;
they would be chilled. You won't find
any, take my word for it."
Bousselin, who wns getting n good deal
of enjoyment out of his cousin's embarrassment and mortification, threw open a
window which overlooked the suowelnd
"There is nobody," he sold, "absolutely
nobody—except the snowman. He Isn't
in love with you, is he? What a splendid
target he would make, with the light
from the window falling ou him uud everything else black!"
He played with his gun, slyly watching
and enjoying tlie look ot terror that overspread Madeleine's face.
"Thnt fellow hns been an eyesore too
long," he added. "I think I will put a
bullet through him. Bet you I hit him In
the bend nt the first shot!"
"Louis, do not shoot, I beg of you,"
Madeleine cried impulsively.
"Why not? Just fur the fun of tbe
Post Madeleine could scarcely speak
distil I'tlj in her excitement uud despair.
"Tl..; noise," she stammered. "The report—so late in the eveulug. It might
frighten some one."
"Whom? My mother will not hear it,
and you are forewarned. Are you nfraid
of searing the servants?"
"Please, Louis, I beseech you!"
"Bnh! AH this fuss nbout not even a
sparrow—only a snowman!"
"But if—if—by chance—there should be
—soiue one"—
"In the garden, nt this hour? A thief,
perhaps? All ihc better. It will be killing two birds with oue stone. However,
I can point a gun, I hope, and I intend to
hit  tha snowman alons —right ia the
heart.   Hero goes!"
She sprang forward and grasped the
gun,_ exclaiming:
"No, no; you shnl! not shoot!"
"Then there is some one there?"
"Your lover?"
"I—I do not know," Madeleine retreated iu confusion, dreadfully shamed by the
confession that had been wrung from her,
but thinking, in her ignorance of the
workings of Rousselln's mind, thut now
all danger was passed.
Meanwhile Bousselin stood nervously
fingering his weapon, with his face distorted with rage, until another atrocious
thought came to him and made him laugh
"A fine arrangement, truly, nnd a pretty confession!" ha sneered. "Mademoiselle bus lovers who come prowling
about my house nt night. That is only
nn additional reason why I should exercise my rights. If I should wing this
lover of yours, what complaint could he
make against me? But, pshaw, it is only
n fancy of yours! There is nobody behind the snowman."
"There is." „
Bousselin laughed no longer, and the
girl made uo further attempt at concealment.
"Well." he said, "I give you your
"Either you swear to marry me"—
"Or I fire."
This brutal threat so shocked and overwhelmed Madeleine that she could find
no answer but a sob.
"Or I fire, I say!"
"Oh!    Then-well-yes!"
Bousselin closed the window.
"Do not cry," he said. "We shall get
on well together, 1 have no doubt. It is
something, yoti must remember, to be
Mme. Bousselin."
That grent honor, however, won by so
painful a sacrifice, Madeleine was destined never to enjoy. Edmond, convinced
of her indifference and ignorant of the
facts In the case, left the country on the
following duy, and Bousselin, after enjoying several weeks of hateful triumph,
suddenly changed his mind. His cupidity

A Story of Arced -LoT.m-.klnc
By John H. Raftery.
It wns some time lu June that Miss
Denby began to "make a show" of herself. From tbe modest responsibility of
neutral tints, cotton gowns nud a sailor
bat sbe suddenly burgeoned forth into
such a splendid radiance of millinery
nnd mode that all her neighbors wondered. For Miss Denby wns an old
maid. She bad accumulated a modest
fortune making dresses, nnd, being
fifty-two years old, ns she admitted
With ft weazen smile, she lind retired
permanently from business nnd settled
down to a routl-s* of tea drinking and
novel rending, relieved, If not Illuminated, by dally strolls in the parlt
and a Sunday visit to church.
Homely? Not exactly, for she had
bright, busy little eyes, a straight nose
that bnd not always been ns red na
now nnd n cute mouth tlmt puckered
lip nt the corner when she smiled. Her
form wns of tbe "ironing bonrd" style
—that Is, neither plump nor angular—
bnt ber hands nnd feet were tho chief
pride of her romantic little heart, for
they were ns small ns a child's. Indeed, what most astounded the neighbors when they lirst begun to "notice"
the old mnld's transformation were tlie
marvelous shoes, slippers nnd gloves
she wore. For Instance, the day Mrs.
Gnllegher followed her over to the park
Miss Denby's little tootsies were Incased In grny undressed kids, with—oh,
shocking!—French heels. But thut wns
not whnt finally set the venomous
tongue of gossip to wagging.
Mrs. Gallegher hnd actually caught
tho old maid keeping tryst with n
From that day tho poor old dressmaker's suddenly glorified wardrobe
was explained. Mrs. Gallegher hnd
watched her foregather with a handsome, dark haired stranger nnd, lean-
lug on his stalwart arm, stroll awny
among the trees. It wns evident thnt
Miss Denby was In love nnd thnt her
suitor was a young and dashing fellow.
"After ber money, I guess," said
Mrs. Jenkins to Mrs. Jones over the
back fence.
"No fool like nn old fool," winked
Mrs. Jones.
Some snid It was "disgraceful," others suspected tbat Miss Denby was a
"little cracked," but they all became
very friendly with ber, drank her tea,
admired her gowns and put themselves
In the way of becoming her confidants.
The good women even began to take
morning tramps lu the park, and the
queer little dressmaker, walking with
her young suitor, was mortified ami
puzzled at the frequency of these accidental meetings.
Finally Miss Denby decided to open
her heart to Mrs. Gallegher, and she
did It like this:
"Hnve  another  cup  of tea  before
you go, Mrs. Gallegher."
"Sure I've bad seven."
"Just one more."    Then sho whispered, "I've got a secret for you."
Miss Denby blushed and simpered
demurely ns she poured the tea, and
her fat guest could hardly wnlt to
come at the long deferred mystery.
"What's   your   secret,   Sophronla?
Sure you ain't going to move?"
"Guess again," giggled the old maid.
"Not another new dress?"
"Not that."
"I'll give np," admitted the other,
wbo enjoyed tbe deception.
"A wedding!" gurgled Miss Denby.
"But, mind now, It's a secret yet. I'm
going to Invite him up—hee-hce, bee*
hee-e—and I want you to come aud
chaperon me"—
Mrs. Gallegher was staring open
"Sophronla    Denby!"   she   gasped.
"Married!   You going to be married!"
"To the finest, handsomest, noblest,
richest—he's a prince"—
"Ah, bother!"
"A Greek nobleman, Count Sardana*
"And what business Is be In?"
"Business!   Oh, dear, none!   He's a
nobleman; owns an Island and alt tbat
sort of thing."
Tbe old maid seemed almost transfigured with enthusiasm. She said sbe
bad met ber noble lover quite by accident while strolling near the beach.
He had found aud restored to ber a
novel wbtcb sbe had left on a bench.
The casual acquaintance thus begun
hod flourished by reason of bis wondrous ardor and the fact that she walked daily in tbe park. The count bad
wooed and won her "with the fierce
and swift gallantry of the old world."
Miss Denby said, aud she bad resisted
blm ns long as her sympathetic heart
could withstand his eloquence.
"He's lu Chicago to float a loan for
the Greek government," she explained.

Denby's entrance, looked up nnd down

A Story ot Tcunr.on.
Apropos of Tennyson's life nt Freshwater Mr. T. S. Eseott tells this story,
says  a   London  journal:   "The  only
Bit linger I  cull i*-nio.iil**.i   to hnvo seen
there wns n young American author,
already of distinguished performance
and of even more brilliant promise,
who had brought with him n letter of
commendation from Longfellow, ne
was painfully shy nnd absentmlnded
nt tho dinner tabic, nearly forgetting
to cat and quite, I think, forgetting to
drink. In the latter respect he resembled his host, who on that day, whllo
the dishes were ou the table, touched
ouly one of them.
"With the dessert n small bottle of
the laureate's favorite port, unfortified
—such, he said, as 'Will Waterproof
once could get nt the Cock In Fleet
street—made Its appearance. It was
only sipped by the poet nfter Intervals
between conversation with bis trnns-
ntlantlc guest or of reveries with himself. 'At last, however, the decanter
wus draTned. The poet, ns If surprised
to find It empty, .with n touch of plaln-
tivencss in bis melodious monotone,
said reflectively to the visitor, who bad
not touched tho wine, 'Do you always
drink a bottle of port after dinner?'"
Popular Quotations.
Mr. Churton Collins, In discussing
populnr quotntions, exclaims: "How
few, for example, who quote the well
known sentiment, 'Salus populi bu-
prema lex'—'The health of tbe people
Is tbe highest law'—know tbat tbey
are quoting tbe Roman law of tbe
twelve tables, or when they talk of
'leaving no stone unturned' that they
are quoting the reply of tbe Delphic
oracle to Polyerutes, or when they
talk of 'calling a spade a spade* tbey
ure quoting an anonymous Greek
comic poet. Thus, too, 'There's many
a slip 'twlxt the cup and tbe lip' Is a
literal translation of nn hexameter In
an anonymous Greek poet. So Is 'The
mills of God grind slow, bat tbey

"Willingly," replied the professor.
"In the first place, you must remember
thnt the Amnnitn phalloldes, or deadly

campestrls, or edible fungus, which Is
our common variety and absolutely Innocuous. Next, It will be necessary to
fix firmly In yocr u>:nd the distinguishing marks or characteristics of the
Agnrlcus campestrls, which are these:
A pilous not covered with excrescencelike scales; gills of a brownish purple
when mature; stalk solid and approximately cylindrical; ring nenr tbe middle of stalk; base not bulbous and not
sheathed by 'acuibrane. The distinguishing characteristics of the Amanita
phalloldes, or deadly ngnrlc, are these:

A gentlemanly chap riding In an elevated car permitted tbe sight of a

degree. Women tripped over It. Men

Tea and Thelne.
Thelne Is known to most people as
tbe active principle of tea or that substance which confers upon the cup Its
cheering nnd stlmulntlng properties.
Caffeine Is the analogous principle of
coffee, although this latter substance
also occurs In tea. Some Investigations Into the development of thelne
shows thnt It is In the Bkln or covering
of the leaves of the plant In their
young stute thnt the nctlve principle is
best developed. I have always been
given to understand that the young
shoots thus amply provided with
thelne and representing the finest of
the crop are sent to Russia, where
they fetch a high price.
What we get in England is presumably the older leaf, with, I should Bay,
less thelne and a deal more tannin.
It would be Interesting to know whnt
proportions of thelne and tiinnln exist In some of tlie cheap teas tbat are
so largely consumed by the British
public, Thelne Itself Is a nerve stimulant of undoubted power, but the quantity we get In our cups Is, of course, In-

One Who Didn't Mind Her Ottb Boal-

The old lady was shrill of voice and
gaifulous of nature, and she drew the attention of tbe other passengers in atTele-
vated train to tlie young woman who was
sitting beside her. Tbe young woman
was accompanied by two small children.
Tlie old woman grinned ingratiatingly
several times at the children, who gave
her no encouragement. After awhile she
turned to the young woman ind asked ia
a voice that attracted the attention of
the other passengers:
"What nice little children! How old
are they, dear?"
Some quiet response by the little woman.
"What's that ? I don't hear very -well."
The young woman raised her voice as
she blushed becauso of the attention of
the other passengers:
"One is three years and the other ia
"My!   Are they Bisters?"
•'They are brother and sister."
"Which one is tlft older—the boy or the
"Th4 Doy.•'
"Well, well! How many montha are
there between them?"
Tlie young woman seemed much annoyed and answered shortly:
"Indeed!   Are you their Bister?"
By thia time everybody in the car was
looking, and some pitied the young woman, whose face was Hushed at the pergonal questions, but were obliged to smile
at tbe persistency of the older one.
"Perhaps their cousin or their aunt?"
eke hazarded. "No? But you are not
their mother, are you?"
Tbere came a decided nod from the little woman as she turned' her face away
from her questioner.
"You are?' Well, well! And how long
have you been married? You are only a
girl yourself; too young to have two
auch big children."
Tbe train drew up at a station just
then, and the young woman gathered her
children together aa sho answered, with
a snap of her big brown eyes:
"I've been married long enough to be
able to attend to my own business. Hare
you been married as long as that?" And
■he swept out ot the car to wait on the
platform for another train that would
not contain such an unwelcome questioner.
"Well!" aald the old woman aa the
train started again. "I wonder what was
the matter with that girl. She eeeme-f

Echo in Mny. 1898
Plattsville, Ont.', Dec. t6.-*-(Spec-
ialj—SoiUQ three and a half years
ago, the Plattsville Echo, the local
newspaper; published quite an extended account of a most miraculous
cure of a well known and highly respected lady, Airs. .1. Burnett, who
hud Ijeen extremely ill for years, and
who claimed to i>i! permanently cured by the use nf Dodd's Kidney
Pills. This good lady, according to
her own statement, hnd been a physical wreck, • w«th nervousness, rheu-
inatisin in the loft arm, pains in the
small of the buck, up the spinal column and back of tho heud, through
tho eyes, loft Bide of the body uud

no appetite and could not sleep at
night. The physicians had given
her up, and In this pitiful anil hopeless condition, Dodd's Kidney Pills
found her and completely restored
hot* to good health without an ache
or pain. Jler appetite returni-d as
her general good health improved.
She used in all but twelve ' boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This was in the spring of 1898,
nnd today Mrs. Harnett states positively and in the strongest and most
grateful terms that tho euro Dodd's
Kidney Pills brought her threo and a
half years ago was absolute and permanent ; that she is today stronger
and belter than she had been for
years before taking the pills. Nothing could bo more convincing than
this g-ood woman's plnin nnd truthful statement, and it proves beyond
doubt the lasting character of the
cures effected by Dodd's Kidney Pills.

Need Watchful Care to Prevent Overfeeding and the Evils That
All child-en at some period of '.heir
infancy are subject to indigestion,
diarrhoea, or constipation. While the
symptoms of theso troubles greatly
differ, the origin of-each is duo to the
same cause—improper foot! or overfeeding, This results sometimes in
diarrhoea, sometimes in constipation. In either the treatment is to
remove the cause, and this can only
be speedily, safely and effectually
done by the use of Baby's Own Tablets, a purely vegetable medicine
guaranteed to contain no opiate nor
any oi the poisonous stuffs found in
tire so-called soothing medicines.
Mothers who once use Baby's Own
Tablets for their little ones never after experiment with other medicines,
and always speak of tliem in the
highest terms. Mrs. Geo. It. Johnston, Wall street, Broekville, says :
"I havo been using Baby's Own Tablets for over a year, always keep
them in the house and always lind
them satisfactory. If my little boy-
two years of age—is troubled with
constipation, indigestion or diarrhoea, I give him the tabjots und he
is soon relieved. The tablets regulate the bowels and do not cause after constipation ns many medicines
do. I have also found them beneficial iu teething."
Baby's Own Tablets are a certain'
cure for all the minor ailments of little ones such as colic, sour stomach,
constipation, indigestion, diarrhoea,
etc. Children take them readily, and
crushed or dissolved in water they
can be given with good results to the
youngest, infant. Hold by druggists

Shakespeare didn't hesitate to go counter to your protest. Ever read "A Midsummer Night's Dream?" Then, ot*
course, you are fami.inr with the line,
"But, like in sickness, did I loathe this

should have written "as if in sickness."

Despite Midicul Treatment, He Became Weaker and Weaker, Until
JJ-; Could Scarcely Sign His Name
Mr. James Dauphine, of East
Bridgvwater, or as he is better
known as ex-^ouncilloi* Dauphine,
has been a sick man for the past
three years. His health gradually
fors-ook him, until by degrees ho was
forced to give up doing all kinds of
work. Ho consulted a physician and
took a large quantity of medicine,
but it did him no good and he gradually grew weaker and weaker. His
duties as a magistrate necessitated
his doing much writing, and being
an^excellent panman in his days of
good health, it came very hard to
him when his hand shook so much
he could scarcely keep it steady
enough to sign hta name. His daughter, seeing his de'plorable condition,
advised him to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, and after a bit of coaxing he was induced to try them.
There was no noticeable change in
his condition until ho had started
taking the third box. From that
on the improvement was rapid. He
grew stronger every day, hia appetite increased, the weariness and lassitude departed from his limbs,
some of tbe lustre of his youth returned to his eye, aud by the time
five boxes were used, Mr. Dauphine
felt a new man. The weight of years
and the burden of sickness have
rolled from his shoulders, his hands
aro now steady and his pen can run
as rapidly as ever. Ho attributes
his cure to the ministration of a
good wife and Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Mr. Dauphine is 73 years of
age, but feels as young and vigorous
as he did years ngo, and is ever
ready to praise in the warmest
terms the health-giving qualities of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
friend of the weak and ailing. They
surpass all other medicines in their
tonic, strengthening qualities, and
make weak ami despondent people
bright, active and healthy. These
pills are sold by all dealers in medi-
Cijne, or can be had by mail, postpaid, at 50 cents per box, or six
boxes for $2.50, by addressing the
Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Drockville, Ont.

This niniiKin-j story is told by tho president of n New Bedford bank. One doy
he nnd other officers nod directors were
engaged in n business meeting, held in
the directors' room of the bunk, and as
they believed themselves secure from intrusion they were much snrin Lsed to see
a poor little wait' enter the room, something which any mnn of business n(Tail's
would not (Inre to do under such conditions. The little girl,, shabbily clothed
nud pinched looking, had all unconscious-
ly**entered on forbidden ground, but tills"
she didn't realize and tit once went to the
men seated about tho big table, offering
them small cakes of soap for sule.
Tbe first director whom she approached shook his head, impatient at the interruption of business, ami said sharply, "I
never use it." The tiny peddler, unabashed, went from man to mnn, all the others,
ont of pity for her wan little figure, buying of her. As she started to leave the
room, after thanking each purchaser, the
girl hesitated a moment iu front of the
director who never used soap, according
to his own declaration, and, lookiug him
over from head to foot, said disdainfully,
"Well, yer look it."' And (hen she swept
out like a duchess.—Iloston Herald.
Bleues of Herat,
Herat has been besieged more times
than any place in tbe world. If the
sieges are accurately counted, the result
is fifty-two. It was the capital of Tiniur,
it wns fought for by the Mohammedans,
by the Persians, by the ojneers of Kabul,
and there was always an ameer of Herat
anxious to regain his patrimony. The
years when Herat has not seen lighting
have been rare, and Herat is n very old
town. During the last century it had
been unsuccessfully besieged in 18o7 and
tS.'I8 by the Persians and taken by thera
in 185(5, regained by I tost Mohammed,
ameer of Kabul, in 1803; lost by him to
an ameer of Herat and regained by him
in 1881, under the lute ameer, Abdurrahman Khan.

The galena ledge on the Last Chance
property has been tapped at a depth of
1.600 feet by the cross-cut tnnnel which
waa started eighteen months ago, and
on which work haa been prosecuted
steadily since. The tunnel la 1 800 feet
In length, is seven by nine in the clear,
and cost abont (50,000 00. In many
ways It bas been a unique understanding. Prior to starting this tunnel, the
ledge had never been prospected below
a depth of 60 feet, and on property in
the Slocan had been worked to any.
thing like tbe depth attained by this
tunnel. The results, however, have
not only realized the most sanguine expectations of Its promoters, but Is a
source of much encouragement to
others engaged in mining enterprises
in the Slocan country, as it proves that
the ore bodies of the camp, not only
reach great depth, but that they maintain their size and value. This tunnel
Is the finest piece of work of the kind
in British Columbia, and the depth, attained Is greater than that of any other
mine tn the Province.
