From Cranbrook Herald.
Fernie, [une 26 —With the advent of
the new general manager of the Crows
Nest Pass Coal company, a regulation
wbicb added half an hour to the shift of
the men who were working day work in
tbe mine wus put into effect and the men
quit work in consequence.
At a largely attended meeting held in
Princess ball on Tuesday evening the
union decided to call out tbe men.
There were only seveu voices raised
against this decision out of 200 members
The mines had just resumed work
Nearly all of the men had beenidle for
the past month, and consequently they
are in poor condition to stand a strike.
Everything is quiet at present and no
trouble is anticipated. How long tbe
strike will last is hard to predict, as the
management of the company is firm in
the stand lt bas taken.
About 400 men are affected by the
Statement of tbe Men.
Fernie, June 25.—The press committee of Gladstone Miners' union No. 76,
W. F. M., has issued the following letter to tbe press:
"We beg leave to ask the favor of being granted to us a space in your paper.
"Tbe readers of your paper will not
have forgotten the dreadiul catastrophe
tbat has recently befallen this town,
through which some 130 men and boys
have met their doom.
"Another blow is now being struck at
those who are left to mourn the death
of their comrades. It has been the rule
at these miues (the Coal Creek mines)
since their being opened up aud amalgamated by four consecutive managers,
that eight hours fiotu bank to bank constitute a day's work. There bas been no
apparent disagreement between the employers and employes regarding this
question until the advent of Mr. Tonkin,
the new manager, wbo has without consulting or even giving any notice lo the
effect, ordered that the men must work
eight hours at the coal face, aud uot as
before, eight hours from bank to bank.
To some of tbe meu this would mean
practically a nine bour shift, iu other
words, nine hours from bank to bauk in
stead of as before, eight.
"This course of action is apparently an
endeavor to establish a precedent not iu
vogue iu any part of British Columbia.
"in tbe mines at Nanaimo and others
on the island, the me:-, descend and ascend within the eight hours.
"It is true that an eight-hour law bas
not been established ln this province for
the simple reason that all the coal companies have an eight-bour law of tbeir
own aud the necessity had not arisen
for this to be by law established. We,
the miners employed at the Coal Creek
mines, are not willing that this custom
be changed after it has been in vogue for
so long, and therefore we have resolved
to stand against it.
"We have reso.ved to stand against
what seems to be an encroachment upon
the rights of the laboring men. Shall
we stand alone?
"We appeal to every 'hardy son of toil'
to stand wltb us.
"Autocracy has reigned too long in
tbis 'free' land.
'We love our freedom and appreciate
equal rights. To fair mind.d masters
we offer corresponding interest, but we
are not willing to tolerate anything that
savors of 'take all and give none.'
"Therefore, be it resolved, that we,
the miners at the Coal Creek mines,
make a stand against any infringement
of tbe long standing precedent of eight
hours from bank to bauk constituting a
day's labor, and also tbat we make an
appeal to tbe member of this constituency to present a bill before tbe house
to make eight hours iu the twenty-four
from bank to bauk to be embodied in
the law of tbis province."

"Upon advising tbe men to this effect
a small meeting was held by some members of Gladstone Miners' union, and a
strike was ordered."
Liable to Be a Coke Famine.
If the strike be not speedily atlj usted
there is likely to be a coke famine,
wbich will result in the closing down of
tbe Boundary smelters. It was reported
from Phoenix that 120 men had been
laid off at tbe Mother Lcde, and tbat
the Granby smelter was burning wood
to keep the furnaces alive. None of the
smelters appear to have etocks of coke
on band that will laat any considerable
length of time, and if tbe strike at Fernie should continue many days more, all
tbe smelters will have to close down,
and, of course, most of the producing
mines that ship to local smelters will
discontinue operations, The situation
is very serious snd mining men express
grave concern at the prospect of a long
period of stagnation.

Question of Police Patrol.
A correspondent of tbe Nelsou News,
reviewing the situation so far as the police is concerned, makes the following
"The matter of the preservation of order bas occasioned the merchants of the
town considerable uneasiness the
strike of the coal miners was inaugurated tbis week, and the general opinion
is that the government might very advantageously make some changes in the
local police force while tbe trouble is on.
'That Chief Barnes is not capable ol
coping with tbe situation in the event of
trouble is tbe opinion of the leading citizens. Tuis opinion is also shared to
some extent by that officer himself, and
it is freely asserted that to this feeling is
dne his failure to take official notice of
the actions of a circle of budding reformers aud purista who have revived to
some extent the practice of running out
of town persons who dj not meet with
their favor. It is this phase of tbe matter which is occasioning the most alarm.
"There may uot be sufficient warrant
for tbe feeling of uneasiness wbich has
taken possession of a number of tbe 111 •
habitants. It may be that the men who
talk tbe loudest about the desirability of
running the objectionable men out are
uot speaking for anyone besides themselves. But the lact remains that men
have beeu tun out of town, and it U ouly
necessary for the disorderly element to
decide that a man s* all go, and he goes.
The police afford no protection lo thos-
whose purposes do uot suit a hurried departure. The present week it is said
has furnished two examples of tbis. It
isc.uiuion talk that two men were 01-
deicd to leave town, aud went. It was
known Ihey would be invited to leave; it
is known tliat they lefi; but further than
this the general public docs not seem to
concern itself. It contents it-elf with
who will be the next to receive atteutiou.
'This is a condition of things wbich
should be changed, and one of the surest
ways of doiug it would be to send in
some new officer who could be depended
upon tu put down a practice which is at
ones dangerous and objectionable-"
The Company's Statement.
Fernie, June 27.—John II. Tonkin, the
new manager of the Crows Nest Pass
Coal company's collieries on Coal creek,
haa issued tbe following statement relative to the causes leading up to the
present strike of the miners:
"Owing lo the shortage of men, resulting from the recent explosion, the company considers it would be belter for al]
concerned to put tbe mines on a single
shift basis, in place of the three shifts as
''This plan would give the miner a
bette- opportunity, as each would have
bis own room to attend to und would
keep the mines in a far better and safer

men, object to tbe system as it requires
them to fulfill their obligation to the
Financial Situation of B. C.
John C. Brown, of New Westminster,
contributes 10 the Canadian Magazine
for June, an Interesting article bearing
on the financial relations between British Columbia and the Dominion
"Roughly summarized," aaya Mr.
Brown, "the case of British Colombia
is, that Its proper proportionate con*
trlbutlon to tbe revenue of tbe Dominion would have been, for the period
since tbe province entered the Confederation (1871), two per cent, of the total
of that revenue, whereas its actual contribution haa been 5 per cent., and that
Dominion expenditure on account of the
province has not been at all in the same
proportion. To put it in au otber way:
Looking to the whole ot Canada, the
central authoilty bas returned to the
people In expenditures (tbe debt of the
Dominion having largely Increased
sluce 1871) much more than It haa taken
from the people In taxation; but, confining the view to Biitisb Columbia, the
reverse has been true; there has been

Future  of Marysville
Looks Bright.
There bave been many doubts
ln the minds of soaae people as
to the future of Marysville,
These doubts, as those who have really
studied the question knew, were unfounded, and to-day the people of British Columbia known that Marysville Is
all right. The people of Canada know
tbat Marysville la all right and the
people of the United Sates know tbat
Marysville la all right. How can lt be
otherwise. A town wltb a* smelter, a
refinery and the prospect of lead manufactures and a town that has the mines
to supply the raw material in Its Immediate vicinity and a town tbat haa
the unbounded prospects tbat the St.
Mary's Valley shows, can be nothing
but all right.
Tbe prosperity of any town or any
community depends a great deal on tne
people who go to make up the population of the town, therefore we would
urge upon the business men, tbe merchants and ln fact upon all wbo have the
Interests of our town at heart, to do all
in their power to make the prospects of
Marysville known to tbe outside world.
This can be accomplished by talking
about Marysville on the outside, by telling their friends in tbe east and elsewhere, when writing, of Marvelous
Marysville and Its resources, and don't
forget when talking about the town te
speak also about the district.
The great thing Is for all hands to
pull to.gether for the general wellfare
of the town; if tbis is done tbere Is no
doubt but that Marysville will long retain the name sae has won for herself.
Maryaville made her start ln 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 case, however, Marysville ln spite of altobstacles
has steadily grown, Iu a very few
weeks she will undoubtedly be oue of
tbe leading towns of tbe district.
Tbe fact of a smelter, a refinery and
lead works of various kinds being erected in Marysville Is proof positive that
we are bound to have a good town here
because these rarlcus lndustiles will
of necessity employ a large number of
rgen and consrrj'iently a good town,
a good pay roll town will be the result.
A good pay roll town Is a town to
which capital Is attracted because a
regular montbly pay roll means steady
business tor 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 forluuate enough to have
property tn this town are to be congratulated—because sbe is a winner and
will undoubtedly sbow a large profit to
property holders In tbe near future.

Ottawa, June 38.— Canada It gradually
awakening to the true significance ln
volved ln the present phenomenal invasion of tbe Canadian Northwest by American farmers business men. This great
movement pre.'ages the dawn of a vast
trade, and Important changes are about
to take place In the Industrial life of tbe
Dominion. At the pesent stage of tbis
peaceable foielgo Invasion some Cara
dlan manufactures forsee the comiug
events tbat are casting their shadow
before, but the great,inaj irliy of them
are as vet lndlff-rent or slow lo perceive
tbat a period of greater prosperity in
business life than has yet visited this
country, Is,rapidly approaching,
Tbe reason of tbe coming changes Is
tbat the actual developement of the
Canadian west has at laat begun in earnest and on a truly gigantic scale. 10. H
Walker, general manager of the Canadian Bank of Commerce says that the
psychological movement has come and
Canada is on the eve of a great boom.
He declares that the Americans aee
what Is coming and are flocking Into
the Northwest by tens of thousands.
Their land agents are everywhere ouy-
lng land wholesale for individuals and
F. A. Kenaston, of St. Paul Minnesota
who la here to take over the John Abell
agricultural works, which have been
bought out by the Minnesota Threshing
Company,states tbat fully 200,000 Americans will go Into tbe Canadian Northwest this year. American companies
are buying land by hundreds of thousand
acres, one syndicate alone having just
acquired a block of Canadian territory
comprising over 1, 000,000 acres of land.
Mr. Kenaston further says: f look to see
such a stampede of American farmers
into Canada as will almost take your
breath away. It will be a movement on
an Immense scale urged by tbe strongest economic reasons; that Is, farmers
can sell land ln Iowa, Kansas, Indiana,
Dakoto, Minnesota and Nebraska at
from $*-' to Hit) an acre and can buy
land that will produce better crops iu
the Canadian Northwest for 15 an acre.
What I expect, and what to my mind is
Is a certainty, is a rush of Immigration
to which the Oklahoma boom was nothing, He further states that his company, forseelng",thIs enormous Increase
of population and consequently a great
demand for farm Implements Is about
to establish Its operations on this side
of the line.
Prominent Canadian Bankers and business men are publishing Interviews calling public attention to the trade situation lhat ia opening, and Ibe press is
beginning to arouse tbe people to the
industrial and political problems thai
are bound to result. Dozens of Instances
might be cited where Americans have
either established new Industries ln tbe
dominion, to control the trade, or have
acquired old-going Industries, with the
wltb tbe idea of greatly Increasing the
Manufactures In eastern Canada are
being called upou to arouse themselves
to the emergency, An enormous trade
Is coming, but there promises to be a
big fight for it. Industries controlled
by vast amounts of American capital
will spring up on every band, and, as
tbe armies of Immigrants coming Into
this country are American, the Incoming
manufacturers will naturally best understand thier needs and will make a b'g
and probably successful fight against
Canadian manufacturers to hold the
Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton and
otber eastern cities are destined to become great manufacturing centers,
electrical power being cheap aud abundant. Winnipeg, ln a short time It Is [
claimed, will be the St. Petersburg of
North America, and many towns scattered throughout tbe Northwest will
suddenly become thriving cities.
What effect tbe incoming armies of
Americans will have politically is hard
to fortcll. A good man; Canadians lake
a pessimistic view of the situation, and
and are predicting that this American
Invasion will naturally lead to an an
nexatlon movement and as the west will
eventually dominate tbe east, the confederation of the whole of North America will eventually follow. Altogether
tbe Immediate future Is big wli'i possibilities for tbis country, and current
events will be walcbed with li tercsl by
people on both sides of the line.
The   (ircat   Dane.
Cranbrook Herald.—
J. C. Drewery, the well known mining
man, wus in town last Saturday and
Sunday on his way lo Moyie, He had
just returned from the Great Dane mine
ou the upper St Marys, where he has
had live meu working ou a contract all
winter. Speaking of the property Mr.
Drewery said, "I am going to bave a
mine there. Of tbis fact tbere is no
doubt. Tbe property is looking better
than ever, and I will be back Ibe middle
of next month to arrauge for further development."
"What do yoi. think of the St. Marys
valley?" was asked him.
'■I am sure that that valley is going to
prove one of the greatest resources of
South East Koolenay. I bave felt satisfied of that ever since I first investigated
that section. Just as soon as that valley
gets transportation ther** is going to be
a great movement in mining, and furthermore there will be some very value*

There Were  All  Kinds of
Hot Field Sport*.
Win    fa    Baseball   nnd   Football   Bul
Is Vanquished In the Lacrosse   Game.
From Cranbrook Herald.
Dominion day was celebrated at Fer-
uie in royal style. The program consisted of a football, baseball and lacrosse
game between Fernie and Craubrook
teams, which resulted in a victory for
Craubrook in the football aud baseball
games and a complete knockout in the
lacrosse contest.
Cranbrook people did tbeir duty by
Fernie in great shape. A special was
secured aud in tbe neighborhood of 96
people were on board when the train
pulled out at 7:30 iu the morning. A.
Jardine was on the engine and Conductor
Dowsley in charge of the train, and
tbey gave tbe passehgerS a fine run tb
Fernie, making it in two hours actual
running time.
Tbe Fernie people were surprised and
pleased to see the large crowd of visiters
filing up from the train and socu after
there was a general mixup of friends
greeting friends and a most cordial welcome was extended to all.
Soon after rt o'clock the ball game
was called and from that time until sir
o'clock one game followed another in
quick succession, and everyone had an
opportunity to .see a great line of sport.
At 9 o'clock the crowd gathered at the
station, there being at least 100 Fernie
people to say goodbye to .the visitors.
There were cheers for Fernie, cheers for
Cranbrook, cheers for the sports, in fact
chceis for everybody. It was a happy,
orderly, good natured crowd, and the
visitors had a glorious day aud feel well
repaid for their tiip to the coal metropolis.
Mining as an Investment.

He lind not uimed at this confession

"He is a suitor for your hand, is

"He was, but ho is not now."

"Why, simply that he has asked

"Hid you hear tho duke answer

"No; but so the duke assured me
ho had done. But what mean you?"
"1 will toll you. Yesterday tho

"So mat tlio count niigtit receive

"But tho duke assured me only
yesterday that I should bo troubled
no more with tbe count. May there
not he some mistake?"
"There can be no mistake on my
part..   The instrument was in tho
duke's own hand."
"But you did not sign it?"
"Ask me if 1 took my own life—
if I made a curse for all I loved."
"It is strange," tho maiden murmured, bowing her head a few moments. "And yet," she added, looking up into her companion's face,
"1 do not think the duke would be
"He-may be," answered Ruric.
"Ho knows how lightly our noble
emperor holds empty titles, and
perhaps ho fears if this matter came
to the imperial ear and you should
claim the right to marry with whom
you pleased Peter would grant your
prayer; hence bo wished to get my
claim set aside so that ho may have
a clearer field in which to move.
Do you know how the duke's affairs
stand at present?"
Rosalind thought awhile ere she
answered, nnd then, while a startled
expression came to her face, she
"Ruric, I do remember now that
between tbo duko and young Damo-
nolT there is Borne matter of dispute.
There is somo question of property."
"Ah I" uttered tbe youth earnestly.   "How is thnt?"
"Why, r.s near as I can understand it, there was a dispute between the duko and the elder Damo-
tiolT concerning the ownership of
Drotzen, the estate on tbo Don, in
Kaluga, and since the father's death
Conrad has maintained his family
claim. You know the duko and the
old count married sisters, and this
estate belonged to them."
"And now," suggested Ruric,
"may not the duke mean to compromise this matter by giving your
hand to tho count and taking Drotzen in exchange?"
"Oh, I cannot think sol'' the
maiden returned earnestly. "Tho
duke would not do that Ho is kind
to me, I am sure. He loves me as
though 1 were his own child.   1
know he does, for in a thousand
ways he has shown it. He is mindful of my comfort and anticipates
my every want. No, no; if lie is
deceiving any one, he must bo deceiving the count."
Uuric started as the new suspicion flashed upon bim. Had the
duko sent Damonoff upon that mission on purpose to get bim into a
quarrel ? "By my soul," thought the
youth to himself, "the duke knows
that I havo taught the sword play,
and he knows that the count would
in this match for me. So he thinks
in this subtle manner lo mako me
nn instrument for ridding him of a
plnguel" But tho youth was careful not to let Rosalind know of this,
lie knew she would be unhappy if
she knew that a duel was likely lo
come oft between himself and the
After 6omo minutes of comparative silence Ruric touched upon a
point which lay vory near bis heart.
"Rosalind," be said, taking both
her bands in his own, "there is one
point upon which we have never
spoken, and 1 know you would have
me speak plainly and candidly. You
know my situation. My father and
your father fought side by side, but
iny father fell, while yours returned
lo his homo. For his eminent services your father received a title and
u noble estate from the grateful l'V
odor, while my father was only forgotten; hence our stations are now
widely different. Yet 1 am not poor.
N'o other man in the empire can
compete with me in tho manufacture of arms, and from my labor I
dorivo a handsome income. You
know it all. And now, if other obstacles wero removed, would you
give mc vour hand and become mine
for life?"
"Aye, Ruric," the noble girl answered, with beaming eyes and a
joyful expression of countenance.
"Were you reduced to the lowest estate of poverty, so long as your generous, pure soul was free I should
only bo the more anxious to lift you
up. Oh, my love knows only the
heart whereon it is secured, and for
my future of joy I nsk only the
truth of my husband's love."
"Bless you, dearest 1" Rurio murmured, clasping the fair being to
his bosom. And for a long wbilo
Rosalind's head lay pillowed upon
the shoulder of the mau she so truly, fondly loved.
That was not the time for bringing forward doubts and fears. Ruric had many questions in his mind
concerning the impediments that
stood in tho way of their union, but
lie kept them to himself now. At
length ho arose to take his departure, and ho simply said as he drew
the maiden to his side:
"You will not allow the duke to
give your hand away ?"
"Never, Ruric."
"If ho asks you for your hand to
bestow upon any of his friends, you
will tell him"—
'"'lhat my heart is not mine to
ghe and lhat my hand cannot go
without it."
"Oh, bless you, Rosalind, bless
you! God keep and }'uard you
There was ono warm, ardent pressure of lip to lip, and then Ruric
Novel turned away and was soon in
the open court. Here be entered his
sledge and then drove to the barracks in the Khilagoiod, whore he
inquired for Alaric Orsa, a lieutenant of the guard. The officer was
quickly found, and as he met Ruric
bis salutation was warm and cordial.
He was a young man, not over five
and twenty, and ono of the finest
looking soldiers in the guard.
"Alaric," said the gunmaker after
tho first friendly salutations had
passed, "I may have u meeting with
Conrad, Count Damonoff. Ho has
sought a quarrel—insulted me most
grossly—aimed a blow at my head—
and I knocked him down. You can
judge as well as I what tho result
must bo."
"Most assuredly he will challenge
you I" cried tho officer excitedly.
"So I think," resumed Ruric
calmly. "And, now, will you serve
mo in tho event?"
"With pleasure."
"I may refer his messenger to
"Yes, surely. And how shall I
act?   What will you do?"
"Knock him down again under
the same provocation."
"I understand. You wish to retract nothing?"
"No. Listen; I will tell you all
since 16eek your aid."
And thereupon Rurio related all
that had occurred at the time of the
count's visit to his shop.
"Good," utiercd Alaric as the
gunmaker finished. "Ho must challenge you, and then you'll punish
him. lie's too proud now. He can
handle somo of his lilytops who associate with him, and perhaps ho
thinks ho can do tho same when he
comes out among the harder men.
But never mind, I will be punctual
and faithful."
Ruric reached home just as his
mother was placing the board for
dinner.   He often went awav on
business, and she thought not of
asking him any questions.
In the afternoon Ruric retired te
his shop, where he went at work
upon a gun which had been ordered
some days before. As yet he had
said nothing to Paul concerning the
affair of the day before since his return from the Kremlin. He asked
him now, however, if any one had
"Only (Iv monk," returned Paul,
without seeming to consider that
there was anything very important
in the visit.
"Uo you mean the black monk—
Vladimir?" asked tho young man,
"Yes, my master. He called here
about the middle of the forenoon.
He wanted one of tho small daggers
with lhe pearl haft."
"And did you let him have one?"
"Certainly. He paid me 4 due*,
ats for it and would have paid moro
bad I been willing to take it."
"And did he make any conversation?"
"Yes. He asked me why the Count
Damonoff came here yesterday."
"Hal How did he know of their
"He was waiting at tbe inn for a
sledge when he overheard tho count
and liis companion conversing upon
the subject."
"And did he ask you any questions touching'the particulars?
"And how answered you ?"
"7 told him the whole story, from
beginning to end. 1 found that he
knew something of their purpose
from what he accidentally overheard, and, rather than havo him go
away full of surmises, I told him
"Of the message too?"
"Yes, my master. I told him all
that happened, from tbe showing oi
the paper which the duke had drawn
up to the departure of the angry
"And what did the monk say?"
Rurio asked very earnestly.
"Why, he said he knew the count
and tbat he was a proud, reckless
fellow and worth but little to society; that was all. He did not seem
to care much about it anyway; only
he said he should have done just as
you did and that every law of justice would bear you out. He had
more curiosity than interest, though
I am sure all his sympathies aro
with you."
"Very well," returned Rurie. "It
can mutter but little what the monk
thinks about it, though I would
rather have him know the truth if
ho must know anything, for I would
not be misunderstood."
"He understands it all now, my
master, and I trust you are not offended at the liberty I took in telling him."
"Not at all, Paul; not at all."
noro the conversation dropped
and the work was resumed in si-
lence. ft was past if o'clock whon
Ruric's mother came and informed
him that a gentleman in tho house
would speak with him.
"Is it Stephen Urzen?" asked the
His mother said it was.
"Then bid him come out here."
Claudia retired, and in a few moments more the gentleman made hia
"Ruric Nevcl," he said, bowing
very stiffly and haughtily, "I bring
a message from the Count Damonoff."
"Very well, sir," returned the
gunmaker proudly, "I am ready to
reci   j it."
Thereupon Urzen drew a sealed
note from his pocket and handed it
to Ruric, who took it and broke the
seal. Ho opened it and road as follows :
Rurio Nevcl- An Insult ot the most ap-f-ravatlnr*
nature haa for th. time leveled .11 dlatinctlona ot

friend, the bearer of thia, will make all arrange*
inents. It you dare not meet mc, aay bo, that alt
liiuy knuw who la tbe coward. DlHONorr.
When Ruric had read the missive,
he crushed it in his hand and gazed
its bearer some moments in the face
without speaking.
"Will you answer?" asked Urzen.
Ho spoko more softly than before,
for he saw something in the gun-
maker's face which lie dared not
"Are you acquainted with Alalia
Orsa, a lieutenant of the guard V
"Yes, sir; I know him well."
"Then let me refer you to him.
I Io will make all necessary arrangements, and I shall hold myself
bound by his plans. I trust that is
"Yes, Bir."
"Then you and I need have no
moro to say."
"Only on ono point," said Urzen,
with somo little show of confusion.
"You aro tho challenged party, and
you will havo the choice of weapons.
The count has not mentioned this
—mind you, ho has not, but I as
his friend deem it no more than
right to speak of it—I trust yon
will choose a gentleman's weapon.
In the use of the pistol or the gun
he is not versed."
"While you imagine I am," said
Ruric, with a contemptuous curl of
the lip, for he knew that the man
was lying. He could see by the fellow's very looks that Damonoff had
commissioned him to broach thia
"Of course you are," returned Urzen.
"And the count is most excellently versed in the use of the sword, ia
he not?"
"He is accounted a fair swordsman."
"Aye; to I thought.  Bnt it mat-
tors not to tne. The thought had
not entered my mind beforo. rave
that I supposed sworia wcvli h: the
only weapons thought or. nowever,
Orsa will settle it with you. I have
given him no directions at all save
to serve me as he thinks proper and
to act upon the understanding that
if I have given offense to the count
I would do tho same again under
provocation. You understand now?"
"I do, sir," returned Urzen in ■
choking tone.
"Then wait a moment, and I will
give you a message to Orsa."
Thus speaking, Ruric went to his
desk, and upon the bottom of the
missive he had received from tho
count he wrote:
Dear Alaric—I lend thia to you by the aame
hand that bore It to me, and you are hereby empowered to act for me aa you may deem proper.
1 ahall be governed strictly by your arrangement..
Having written this, ho showed it
to Urzen and asked him if he would
boar it to the lieutenant. An affirmative reply was given, and then,
simply folding the noto in the opposite way from the original fold, the
gunmaker superscribed it anew to
the lieutenant and handed it to his
visitor. Urzen took it, and, with a
stiff bow, but without speaking, ho
turned and left' tho place.
That evening about 8 o'clock a
sledge drove up to Ruric's door, and
Alaric Orsa entered the house. Ho
called the youth aside and informed
him that the arrangements had all
been made.
"Damonoff is in a hurry," ho said,
"and we have appointed the meeting at 10 o'clock tomorrow forenoon. It will take place at the bend
of the river just beyond the Viska
"And the weapons?" asked Ruric,
"Swords," returned Orsa. "Tho
count will bring his own, and ho
gives you the privilege of selecting
such a one as you choose."
"I thank you, Alaric, for your
kindness thus far, and you may rest
assured that I shall bo prompt."
"Suppose I call here in the morning for you ?" suggested tho visitor.
"I should bo pleased to have you
do so."
"I will, then. I siiall be along in
good season with my sledge, and wo
will both reach tho ground together."
Thus it was arranged, and then
Orsa took his leave.
When Rurie returned to his seat
by the fireplace, he noticed that his
mother watched him narrowly and
with more than ordinary interest.
Ho had once made up his mind that
ho would say nothing to his mother
about tho affair until it was over,
but as the time was set and the hour
drew nigh his mind wavered. When
it was over, where might ho be?
But he was cut short in his reflections by the voice of his parent.
"Ruric," she said, and her voice
trembled while Bhe spoko, "you will
pardon me for prying into your affairs, but I cannot hide from myself
that-something of moro than usual
moment is the matter with you.
Why are these men calling to and
fro? And why aro you so thoughtful and moody ? You know a mother's feelings, and you will pardon a
mother's anxiety."
"Surely, my mother," the youth
returned, gazing up for a moment
and then lotting his cyos droop
again. At length ho resumed, "1
had made up my mind to toll you all
ere you spoke."
There was something deep and
significant in Ruric's tone, and his
motlicr quickly caught the spark.
"What is it ?" she tremblingly uttered, moving her chair nearer to
her child's side.
"Listen," the young man said.
And thereupon ho detailed the circumstances attending the visit of
the Count Damonoff to his shop.
Then he told of his own visit to
Rosalind and its result and then of
the visit of Stephen Urzen.
"And now, my mother," he added without waiting for any reply,
"you know it all. You see how I
am situated. Remember, our nation
has reached its present point by successful war. The soul of the nation
is built upon military honor, and
"Since our noble emperor has opened
tho way of advancement of the lowest of his subjects who are brave and
truo tho coward is looked upon with

mother, I would havo you speak."
For some moments Claudia Nevel
was silent. But at length she said,
while a tear glistened in her eye:
"I have given one loved being up
to my country's good. Russia took
my husband from me, and 1 could ill
afford now to lose my son. Yet
rather than ono stain should rest

small, the fact remalus that more of

for this Is, of course, the enormous

how much milk each furnished. It
was found that thirty-five of these 100
farmers milked their cows at an actual
loss and that every one ot these losing
herds consisted of dual purpose cows.
"The reason for this," he said, "is ignorance and nothing else." Tbe farmer was trying to dairy without cows
suited to dairy performance, and be
fed foods not suited to the production
of milk. The highest profits In every
case came from the herds which were
dairy bred nnd dnlry fed. They had
dairy form and aptitude and food containing a sufficiency of protein.
Mr. Hoard's main contention Is that
tbe patron Is In the rear. The cream-
erymen and tbe creameries nre reasonably up to date, but tbe patron bas not
progressed. He Is In the rear, and so
long as tbis Is the case no satisfactory
progress can be made, for no creamery
can prosper without milk from prosperous pntrons, nnd tbey cannot prosper If

Care of the Dairy Cow.
While we believe In selecting for the
dairy cows that are of what is called
the dairy type, so often described and,
wo nre sorry to sny, variously described by the many writers, we must take
exceptions to the Idens of some writers
who plnce too much stress upon tba
Importance of these points. There 1|
occasion to observe the Individuality,
of the animal, which we think depends
very much upon the care given her as
a calf and a heifer. If she has been
bred ns a dnlry cow either for production of milk or butter, she should also
hnve been fed for the same purpose
almost from the time the calf Ib dropped until lt reaches the dealer or the
dairyman. Any lapse in feeding is almost as bad for tbe usefulness In the
dairy as an outcross in breeding. Perhaps wo might say tbat lt Is worse, for
we would expect to mako a good dairy,
cow from a fairly well bred grade animal that bad been properly fed np to
and during the time she was fresh
with her first calf than from one of tha
best breed that bad been unduly fattened or starved during the first three
years ot her life.

Feeding; Dairy- Cattle.
Always feed at regular hours. To
stand watching and waiting fcf toot,
thnt should hnve been ready before Is
conducive only to worry, and that does
not make milk or put on fat, says
American Cultivator. Feed no more
than can be eaten, and if any Is left
clean the troughs or mangers as soon
as tho cows seem to have had enough.
In the short days of winter two good
feeds, a day bave been found better
than three. Do not feed before daylight or after dark and do not disturb
thein during the night unless the barn
Is on fire. Tbey will be tho better for a
carding and brushing every day, not
only for cleanliness' sake, but lt puts
tho blood ln circulation and Invigorates them. Always treat them kindly
nnd gently, because kindness Is a good
Investment. Follow these rules, and
there will be but tittle use for veterinarians or cow doctors.
Kidney and Urinary Troubles were Followed by  Dropsy   -— A
Perfeot Cure  by Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills.
This case of Mr. James Trcneman, tho well-known butcher, of H36 Adelaldo street, London, Out., Is another proof that Dr. Chaso's Kidney-Livor Pills are effective in tho most severe and complicated diseases of the
Tho double action which this famous prescription has on,both the kidneys and liver io in a large measure responsible for its wonderful curative powers. When there are backache, frequent, difficult or painful urination, dropsical swellings, biliousness, constipation or stomach derangements, you may depend upon it that
the kidneys are clogged and the liver sluggish.
It Is at such times that Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills prove themselves prompt to give relief and certain
to effect a cure.   The evidence to prove this fact is simply overwhelming.
Mr. James Treneman states:—"Two years ago I wns laid up with Kidney disease and urinary troubles.
Besides the pain and Inconvenience caused by these troubles I becatuo diopsieal, and my legs would swell up
so that I could scarcely go around ut ail. Hearing of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills I procured a box and
continued the use of this valuable medicine until now I can say for a certainty that I am entirely cured. I
never took any medicine that did mo Si> much good, and am firmly convinced that if it had not been for this
medicine I would not bo working to-day "
As a family medicine of tested and known worth, Dr. Chase's Kldi, v-Llvcr Pills have never been approached. They act directly on the kidneys and liver, regulate the bowels nnd ensure the perfect action of the
digestive and filtering systems. Onepill a dose, 25 cents a, box. At all dealers, or Bdmanson, Bates at Co ,

From LeSorelois, 'Sorel, Que.
Of tlit* diseases afflicting mankind
dyspepsia is one of the worst to endure. Its victims find life almost a
burden. Food becomes distasteful ;
tbey suffer from severe pains in the
stomach ; somelilnes excessive heart
palpitation, and a general feeling of
weakness and depression. Though
this disease is one of the most distressing, it in que which, if the proper remedy is applied, can lie readily cured. Thousands throughout
this country bear testimony to the
efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink Fills as
a never-failing cure. Among them .is
Mrs. Adolphe A. Latl'OUSBG, a well
known and highly esteemed lady residing f&i Sorel, -Que. -She 'says:—
"For two years J was a constant
sufferer from bad digestion nnd its
accompanying symptoms. Food became distasteful and I grew very
weak. 1 suffered much from pains in
stomach and head, i could not obtain restful sleep and became unlit
for all housework. I tried several
medicines wilhout finding the least
relief ami 1 grow continually worse
until iu Iho end 1 would vomit

up hope of over being well again
when one day 1 read of a cast; simi-
llar to mint' cured through the use
of Dr. Williams' Fink Fills. 1 determined to give theso pills a trial and

boxes my strength had returned, the
pains which had so long racked me

Ur. Williams' Fink Pills are a purely tonic medicine and unlike all purgatives do not weaken the system,
but give life and energy with every
dose. They are a certain cure for
anaemia, dizziness, heart troubles,
rheumatism, ' sciatica, indigestion,
partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance
and the functional ailments that
make the lives of so many women nn

The Manitoba wheat market has
been quiet during the week, and
trade moves along in a steady way
without much demand for wheat, or
pressure on the part of the holders
to sell it. Wheat for immediate or
early delivery is easier to sell than
for more distant delivery. Last
week prices left off at 74%c for 1
northern, ami 72-%c for 2 northern,
in store Fort William, spot or May
delivery, and by Tuesday afternoon
they had advanced under the influence of stronger outside markets to
TGVic and 74%c; but since then they
have declined 1c, and at the close of
business on Friday the best prices
obtainable were 7514--' 1 northern,
and 7ll\'kc 2 northern spot or May

Bristol, Que., May 17.—(Special)—
No disease can cause more severe
and dreadful pain than gravel. Reuben Draper, of this place, was taken
ill with this awful trouble about five
years ago. He was cured and so
many have asked him how it was
done that he has decided to give the
whole story for publication :
"About five years ago 1 was taken
ill with tlie Gravel. I suffered great
pain, so I sent for a doctor. He
gave me some medicine und came to
set! me twice aftcrwurdc, but my disease was not gone, and in a short
time I had another very bad attack.
"This timo I sent for another doctor, with nbout the same results,
only ] was getting weaker ull the
"Then a man advised me to try
Dodd's Kidney Fills, for he said they
had cured his mother. 1 thought I
would try them, and bought a box.
"Just one week after I began the
treatment I passed a stone as large
as a small bean, and four days later
another about the size of a grain of
barley—this gave me great relief and
1 commenced to feel better and to
gain strength right away,
"That was live years ago, and 1
have not hud any trouble in that
way since. I have the stones in a
small bottle, and anyone can see
them who wishes. Dodd's Kidney
Fills certainly saved my life."
The story of Mr. Draper will be
good news to many sulTerers who
may not have known that Dodtl's
Kidney Pills always cure Gravel and
Stone in the Bladder.

Bvory mother knows that little
children need careful attention—but.
they do not need strong drugs. When
baby is peevish, cross or unwell, iL
is an unfortunate fad that too many
mothers  dose    them  wiLh     so-cnlled
soothing" medicines which stupefy
and put the lillle one into an unnatural sleep, but do not remove the
cause of the trouble. What is wauled
to make th? little ones, bright, cheerful atal well is Baby's Own Tablets,
which will promptly cure, colic, sour
stomach, Indigestion, constipation,
diarrhoea, simple revers and teeth-
i ng trou hies. They gi ve ch lldren
sound refreshing sleep, because they
remove the cause of the trouble.
These tablets are guaranteed to contain no opiate or other harmful
drug. Mrs. .lames Pound, Valentin,
Out., says: "Beforo 1 got Baby's
Own. Tablets my Baby was very pale
and delicate aud so peevish thai I
had to walk the floor with him day
and night. The lirst tablet 1 gave
him hoi pod him, ami that night he
slept, soundly. Since then the tablets havo made him perfectly well,
and he is now a line, healthy looking baby, and is getting quite fat.
1 would not be without the tablets
if they cost a dollar a box."
Baby's Own Tablets are good for
children of all ages and are taken as

When Mr. Kickers returned he became
very indignant over the action of the, aud swore lie would have his

could depose Mr. Sutherland, the citizens generally uiited upon a move to
endorse his action. A meeting was
called at which P. 1) Hope, tbe druggist, presided, and J. 11. Hawke officiated as secretary. The ieeling was intense and several speeches were made
that were of the warm order, aud a resolution adopted setting forth that the resignation of both of tbe directors would

The   following   bulletin    was   issued
from Buckingham Palace  at 7 p.   m.:
The  King   had  a fairly   comfortable
day and the discomfort ln tbe wound
has been less.

London, June 30.—The noticeable excitement during tbe past we. k outside

At noon the following official statement was given out at the palace:
"There Is no cause for alarm in the distress caused by dressing the wound.
This occurs at least mice dally. This
wjuud, whlci is of considerable depth,
is dressed Irom the bottom, as it Is
essential that lt should heal from within outwards. The dreising causes His
Majesty considerable pain, which he
has borne with great fortitude. Ia fact
His Maj-sty's courage and patience call
for tbe greatest admiration. Tbe King
was much benefitted by tbe change to
the couch yesterday, 011 which he stayed for a few hours. The electric fans

reading his correspondence. Neither

view of correcting the numerous unfounded stories published with circumstantial detail regarding wbat la alleg

was given that a gang if reiels were

any drums, except bagpipes. Immed-

them. We soon found our f.,rce much
too little, and they were far too near
for us to tnink of retreating; death was
in every fie ; bul tc it we went, and
by the lime half our litte party was
killed, we began to be all alive. Fortunately the rebels had no guns, but
pistols, cutlasses and pikes; and as we
had plenty of mu.kets and ammunition,
we put tbem alt to the sword; not a soul
of them escaped, except some that were
drowned iu an aojolning bog, and tn a
very short time nothing was to be heard
but silence. Their uniforms were of
different colors, but mostly green. After
the action, we went to rummage a sort
