Our .Local. Member's Opinion on the Coal Co.
He   Would   Give   the   Public a   Show
iu    Profits   ol   Merchandising
at   -Least.
Prom Cranbrook Herald*
11. C. .Smith, M. F. P., was iu town
Tuesday shaking hands with bla ft {ends-
He expressed the opinion that tht; peo
pie of British Columbia would find it
necessary to do some legislation to give
the public a chance against the Crows*
Nest Pass Coal company. Mr, Smith
was emphatic In his denunciation of the
methods employed by the Coal company
iu taking large tracts Of land and building towns for their exclusive use, barring
all public enterprise and commercial
"Why should not these camps be
opened to the public? The company bas
untold wealth in the coal deposits, and
lhe public should be allowed to enter
the towns aud profit by the development
of nature's resources. We don'L want
the Pennsylvania system In British Columbia, nor do We want any company using autocratic power against the public.
The coal company should be willing to
deal witli fairness with tbt people, and
not try to hold everything in sight to increase dividends, They sell the fuel
ihe light, the water, the supplies and
furnish ths houses now for the people,
aud from all of tbese sources they, of
course, make their profit. Iu Ferrie
they have purchased all of the govern-
ment lot-;, they own the land at Michel
and Morrlssey, and no peison is allowed
to enter the latter towns without permission, else they will be regarded in
the light of trespassers. They are carrying the thing too far. t helped the
company to aecure certain railway legislation, because 1 thought it was light
and just. I will support any legislation
al the next session that will tend to restrict their powers and give to the people rights '.hat the public is entitled to,
I am opposed to fostering a monopoly of
this kind that has only one object in
view, and that is the payment of Increasing dividends to people in eastern Canada and jlm Htll and his United States
associates. The people of British Columbia have had too much of that kind of a

Loss of Bridges al Calgary.
Cranbrook Herald —
The continuous rains the past two
weeks, not only In the mountains but ou
tbe pra'rie, ha3 played Bad havoc with
tbe rallioad, E**ortuualeIy there has
been no serious damige west of the Crows
Nest summit, the road being clear from
there to Kootenay Landing. Hut east of
the summit to Lethbridge, wherever
there was a chance for a washout, it has
occurred. The passenger trains are
runn'ng from Kootenay Landing to
Cowley, and the road will probably be
in shape through to Macleod today or
tomorrow. The long high bridge at
Pincher is badly damaged by the overflow, aud the bridges over lhe S*. Marys
and Belly rivers are iu bad condition and
the approaches badly washed out. The
branch from Macleod to Calgary Is put
out of business owing to bridges being
washed ont, and it will be a week or ten
days before the road will be passable
from Macleod to Lethbridge. At Calgary the iron bridge east of the town
over the How Is in bad shape, and likewise tbe twit] bridges west of town over
the same river. Arrangements have
been nmde now so that passengers and
mail ate being transferred ct these two
points, but it will probably be some
time before freight traffic will be resumed.
Kxtrauidinary efforts are being put
forth by the Company, anil the road is
being put Iu shape as rapidly as possible. Hut tip: cessation in traffic, combined with the Strike at the Fernie coal
mines, has bad a most quieting effect on
business in Cranbrook and the surrounding territory. Tbe sawmills, with all
the orders for lumber they cau handle,
now find it impossible to got any curs
out. Tekeu all together, the conditions
arc most unfortunate at this time, but
will be changed for the better iu a week
or two.
This hotel is now open and ready for guests.
II. D. McMillen, formerly with the Cranbrook  Hotel, is
the proprietor, and he proposes lo have
A   Pocket  Smelter.
From the Herald—
Leroy Sage has a new Invention called
tbe pocket smelter and he is agent for
South Last Kootenay. It is an Novation since it will enable a prospector to
gain a very good idea of the contents of
a piece of rock in a few moments anywhere he may be on the trail. It is a
simple thing and yet thoroughly practical and is worth trying by any prospector, since the cost is very small, Mr.
Sage haa a number on hand and is giving tbem a test for the benefit of any
interested parties who call.
Is   Considering   With    Manner    tfiuf
antl   Expert   -Eiemndorf  as   to
Details  of  Plans.
" sited .States Senator Tu;/.er, preside oi The Sullivan ilroup Mining com-
pa1'.', arrived yesterday evening, with
Mrs Turner. Manager Hull rreut down
to Cranurook ana they drove direct to
Marysville. To-day the Senator, In
company with Manager Hub and Expert Eiemndorf, have been £vlng over
tbe works and sizing up tbe situation,
preparatory to the prep-tratlous of
plans und estimate!) for the completion
of the amelter plant. It wiUtake abont
two days to complete tbis work, and
then lis noon as tbe plans are decided
upon woik will be pushed with energy
and despatch to complete) the smelter
and get it ready to blow ln. Of course
tbere is a good deal of work to be done,
and thi3 will necessitate the employment of quite a number ol uen fur a
short time at least,
It has been stated within th? past two
w eks, by a well known expert who
bas examined the property, that the
Sullivan mine with Its vait body of ore
and iu own smelter, will prove one of
biggest propositions in the country,
even with lead at its pres.-nt prices-
This wiil mean thatMarvsviL . will soon
be a lively, industrial city, and that all
of this part of tbe district Is to receive
a direct benefit, from the operation ot
tne smelter,
Rules and  Regulations  Governing  the
Price  of   Lead.
Rossland Miner : Tbe cau.palgn for
IfgkimaLe legislative asslssfftce to Canadian silver-lead producers ii being prosecuted vigorously. The latent move In
the direction of influencing legislation
emanates from tbe Nelson Board of
Trade, which has from the Start beeu
prominently identified mih &e f-gitat-
The Nelson beard of trade bas issued
In circular form an appeal to the business community generally, urging that
wholesale houses iu Eastern Canada
and the coast be enlisted in the ranks
of those who desire tariff legislation
that will assist the lead producer, The
Idea Is outlined as follow*;:
"Write a letter to each of tbe wholesale houses you deal with In Eastern
Canada and at tbe coast. Tell thera
that 1* the load Industry were flourishing you could hope to double or treble
your orders. Use the following information as a basis for your letter, expressing It in your awn way. and ask
tbem to use their Influence with tbelr
representatives in the Dominion house
to obtain a satisfactory measure of pro-
tcctiau t-~> the lead Industry* We think
tbis of the utmost importance.
"(1 ) That the Smelter trust In the
United S'.ates has practically refused
io buy Canadian lead and thus has rc-
strlcted our output.
"(3.) The Eastern Canadian market
Is supplied almost entirely with lead
Imported from Germany and Great Elii-
taln. Ouly a very little of Kootenay
lead Is comprised in their whole year's
"(3). The duty on these imponatloas
is very small, and does uot represent
enough to enable our western producers
—where labor Is hlf'h-prleed and living
expensive—to capture the market,
'-(r) The bounty given by the Do-
mtaiontgovernmeut of S" per ton to encourage lead retiring Ih practically useless without the Imposition of a tariff
aa indicated.
'•We therefore ask: A duty of aft per
cent on Importations of pig lead, and
enough ou lead products to Induce-! their
manufacture In Canada. Tho existing
duty 00 pig lead from Great Britain is
10 per cent and practically nil on lead
''This would mean an immediate mar.
ket for 20.000 tons of Kootenay pig and
refined lead at a reasonable profit: tbe
surplus would lind Its outlet as at present on the markets of tlie world.
"Costs to the Canadian consumer
would uot be Increased, as in many
instances the lead bought in the East
has been shipped from the Kootenay
district to Great Britain or Germany
manufactured thera, aud then re-sold
to thu country.
"Such Is merely an outline of tbe
facts. Should you require figures la
support, the Secretary of the Nelson
Board of Trade will have pleasure In
supplying them.
"We leave it to your loyalty to adopt
the suggestion wc bave made.     This is
no mere local matter, but one  of  great
j interest to tbe whole of British Colutn-
I bla, and also to Manitoba aud the North-
j west,  as the  Kootenay is the  natural
! market for tbelr produce,    We can all
help.   Will you do what you can "'
J.   C.    DREWRY   BACK
More   than   Pleased   With
His  Prospects.
The St. Mary's Valley Will be One of Ihc
Leading Mining Camps of South
East Kootenay.
Rossland Miner: John C. Drewry bas
returned to tho city after a lesgtuy trip
through the Eaat Kootenay country Inspecting various mining propos'tions
with waich he is identified. Mr. Drewry
is enthusiastic over the prospects for
the development of a great mineral industry through East Kootenay, and particularly witb regard to the fit. Mary's
river country, a district of which comparatively Mule has been heard and
which la not lttrelj to come to the front
until transportation facilities by rail
arc provided. Fortunately Indications
seem to point to a likelihood of the Can-
?dlan Pacific building up the valley of
the St. Mary's at no late date.
A* managing director of the Canadian
Gold Fields Syndicate holding a heavy
block of shares in the St- Eugene mine,
Mr. Drewry naturally took advantage
of bla visit to Eist Kootenay to spend
several days at Moyie and go over the
workings of tbo property, which is in
several respects the biggest lead mine
tn America* his states that the de
velopment work in the io-ver levels of
the mine as mapped out several months
since when shipments were suspended,
is being; carried ahead steadily with a
force 0/^ft meu. It will be remembered that one of the features of this new
development work was the sinking of a
shaft on tbe Lakn Sucre ground within
a comparatively short distance of the
bank of Movie lake On the start tbeie
was a doubt as to the feasibility of this
plan owing to the danger of excessive
seepage from the lake. It was
long since proved, however, that
uo danger was to be apprebenoel on
tbis score, and the sinking was carried
ahead without the slightest inconvenience from water. Now work is being
carried along on a drift started from
the first level In the shaft, which is the
the 10^5 foot level cf the mine. The
reauits aitained by the work at this
point are described by Mr. Drewjy as
eminently satisfactory to the management. D.'velopweut is also being pushed on St. Eugene ground—the upper
workings of the property. At tbe com
piesaor plant two new Babcock St
Wilcox boilers of UO horsepower each
are being installed to expedite working
operations when shioplog is resumed,
ln every direction the management of
the St, Eugene Is taking steps to handle
the rnia,e with every facility when lt
is determined to commence stuping ore.
Thia juaOture Is uo nearer, however,
than ft was several months ago, At
thaftloie the coraoany asserted that no
ore cou-d be sent out until the price cf
lead reached 1818; the quotations now
arc r.lij.'taly above tne £11 mark, so that
quotations will require to be enhanced
substantially to tempt the Si, Eugene
people into mining their product, Without navlug any definite basis upon
which to base the forecast, there appears to bi a general feeling that an
Improvement lu r^pect to ollvei-lead
prices may be expected In the comparatively near fnture. The St. Eugene
concentrator has a capacity, as proved
by actual operating tests extending
over several months, cf slightly over
LOO tons of concentrates per diem, so
that It te an Important factor In the lead
Industry ot British Columbia.
from Moyie Mr. Drewry went to
Marysville, where the woik on tbe Sullivan smelter launder way, although
building operations are suspended) tern
porarlly the management says.
Following the St. Mary's river, Mr.
Drewry went to the Great. Dane property, an exceedingly promising silver-
teatl proposition icqnlted by tbe managing director of tbe Canadian Gold
Fields Syndicate and his associates last
summer. Since August, 1001, Mr. Drewry has hail a crew of men steaditv at
woik on the Great Dane and he states
tbat sufficient progress has been made
in development to enable him to state
without qualification lhat in lhe Great
Dane he has a mine The showing Is
immense and the ore averages :.''-. ounces
of silver and 70 per cent lead, making a
desirable concentrating ore, or one
that could be shipped to good advantage were lead prices more favorable
to toe miner, lhe main ledge of the
Great Dane has been opened up for a
considerable distance and as crosscut
Is now being run from this main vein,
of wnioh great thluga arc expected.
From the outcrop of this second lead
a shaft was sunk for 15 feeL to determine the dip of the vein prior to cross-
cutting at depth, an 3 lu this short space
the ore widened out from a foot to two
and a half feet. When encountered In
the crosscut a vertical depth of 200 feet
will be attained, and another 20 feet of
work Iu all that Is required to reach
tbe point where the lead should be tapped. Work Is to be continued all summer on the (Jrcat Dane.
Although exclusively ln the  develop
ment stage as yet, the St. Mary's river:
a-ution ia the scene of co little activity.
From one end to the other tbe vaUey,
including both forks, Is dotted with the
camps of prospectors who are doing the
annual assessments ou tbelr holding!-.
When the country Is properly opened
up it Is certain to go ahead rapidly.
The question of railroad facilities is
the vexed problem in connection with
the success of the St. Mary's river mining district. It is partially solved by an
undertaking from tbe Canadian Pacific
to construct a branch line up the river
that will tap the principal properties
aud act as a feeder for the entire country, but the railroad has not aa yet
stated when the branch will be proceeded with although the Canadian
Pacific's bona fides lo Cie matter Is demonstrated by the fact that last year
a strong survey party was at work between Marysville and the foot of St.
Mary's lake, to which point the location line is complete. It is expected
that the location will be concluded this
summer to the summit, and an announcement as to tbe company's intentions with respect to building ibis year
is looked for ia tbe course of tbe next
few weeks.
Obscrvaiioas by F. B. Simpson,
Cranbrook Herald —
Wheu A. Eeitch was In Winnipeg last
month he had an opportunity of sizing
up the great immigration that has stalled from the States to Canada. Mr.
Leitch says that the people of this country have no conception of the magnitude
of the movement unless they have beeo
placed ni a position where they could
see something of it personally. While
there he met men from the difTer'riit
states who were surprised to find land iu
Canada selling from £3 to $fo an acre
that would raise more grain thau laud in
the western stales that was held at $40
to f50 an acre. As a result syndicates
were formed uud vast sums have already
been invested iu the unoccupied lands
of Manitoba, Assinibota and the Territories. One Chicugo syndicate had
bought direct from tbe government an
immen.se tract of land for $1 per acre,
taking every oilier section, and entering
into au agreement to colonize the reserved sections in a stipulated time.
The managers of 'lie syndicate arrived In
Winnipeg while Mr. Leitch was there
secured a special train and witb a number of invited guests from Winnipeg left
for their new domain in royal style.
Mr, Leitch was invited to join the party,
but the necessity of reluming home prevented him accepting, but his brother at
Oak Lake went in bis place Mr. Leitch,
like all others wUo have given -Lhe matter thought, is of the opinion that the
tide of prosperity has turned iu western
Canada, and that the settlement of tbe
vast areaS Of unoccupied lands means a
betterment of the conditions iu middle
and western Canada.
Terms are quiet al) over thecountry<
but it will not always be thus. We have
had good times in South Last ICuoteua>
and that in what has Spoiled many of us.
We got into the habit of expecting too
much, aud thought lt would always bt
the same. Most of us came heie because it was dull times where we had
lived, so there is no use to kick. Just
wait awhile. Western Canada has the
resources, and for the next ten years
will furnish more opportunities for the
hustler without moucy and the man with
money to invest than any olhei p.irt of
the civilized globe. Wait until the lead
mines open up again; wait until the
great bodies of copper and gold ore iu
South Bast Kootenay are developed;
wait until thousands o( people bave
made the prairies cast ol us bloom like 11
rose; wait until every stick of timber in
the' Kootenays will be in demaud at a
good price. You will not have to wait
very long, but when it does Come this
will be a great country, and the rustler,
the business bead, the m-m determined
to win, will be glad he has remained
here. Just remember this and see if the
Old Man Is not right in his prediction!

Fernie, July Z --The Strike continues
at Fernie, but tbe men are' working at
Michel and Morrlssey.
Fernie, July 6,—There ia no change in
the strike situation here. Tbe Fernie
Board uf Trade has requested tbe president of the Associated Boards of Trade
to call a meeting of the executive in the
hope that a method can be devised to
bring into operation the provisions of
tbe conciliation and arbitration act, It
is not likely that either party in the
present trouble will take the initiative
to bring the au'into operation, but diplomatic action on the pert of th-? Associated Boards of Trade migti 3'c^re thr.

White   Men   Leaving.
Fernie, July 6.—Although there is
more oi less talk ou the streets of a settlement of the strike here, there ir. nothing to indicate that any progress baa
been made in that direction. Many of
the white miners are getting outof town,
which may be taken, thai so fai as they
are concerned, they do not anticipate au
early settlement The Slavs are remaining.
It is reported here that tbe trouble at
Michel has been settled and lhat the
miners are back at work, but as to this
the Stories are contradictory.
Tlie police business of lhe town is now

The   Coke   Famine.
The strike at the Crows Nest I'oss coc;
mines is causing all kinds of trouble 11;
the Boundary country, where the smelters are dependent entirely on the Ktrni-
ontput. It may be necessary to shnt
down the smellers and that means absolute business stagnation In that section,
not only iu mining, bnt iu aU branch*-
of business that depends upon that industry. The Phoenix Pioneer, speakirg
of the situation, says:
Boundary smelters require 10 less th. u
.r.50 tons of coke per day to make up (1 e
respective charges, or shout 18 Cars each
2\ hours. Of this amount the Gran*b*
smelter ah ne uses to ears for its foflt
rurnaces. Since tbe Fernie explos on
which occurred May 23, comparatively
little coke has been received in lh-3
Boundary. Agents from all the lec il
smelters have visited Pen ie to get at tec
esact situation, but with little satisfaction
When tbe explosion happened the
Granby smelter had about 1500 tons of
coke na a reserve, the Greenwood smelter bnd a 30 day's reserve Ior oue fnrtace
and the .Sunset smelter also had cons r*-
erable coke. Jlut these reserves were
Boon used np, and a coke famine now

The time at which we open our
story is midwinter and toward the
close of the seventeenth century.
Russia had passed through the long
and hitter ordeal of national night.
The Tartar yoke had been worn till
tho very bone.; of tho nation were
galled, and when this was thrown
olf civil dissensions and insurrections commenced, Tho Poles and
Swedes plundered the country, and
amid general tumult and confusion
some half dozen men were clamoring for the throne. At length a few
patriotic citizens, pledging everything they held dear on earth to the
cause of freedom from this curse of
anarchy and headed by a noble
prince and a bumble, patriotic
butcher, made a bold stand to save
the country. Moscow was retaken,
and Michael Honmnoff was chosen
czar, and this illustrious family still
occupies the imperial throne. And
now the day of Russian greatness
dawned, but the sun was not fairly
up and tbe broad li,;lit opened not
upon the empire until Peter came
to the throne.
In the department of the Sloboda,
the suburbs of Moscow, and very
near the river Moskwa stood a
humble cot, the exterior of wbich
betrayed a neatness of arrangement
and show of taste tbat more than
made up for its smallness of size.
Nor was it so very small, in faa-*,
but only in contrast, for near at
band about it stood many large,
shabby, dirty loo/ting structures
that overlooked the prim cot, as
bleak mountains may look down upon a verdant kill. And within this
cot was as neat as without. The
two apartments in front, one of
which was only used in winter, were
furnished not only with neatness,
but with a fair show of ornament
and luxury. Back of these were a
large cooking and dining room and
two small bedrooms, and back still
from tbese were an artisan's shop
and other outbuildings. The shop
was devoted principally to the manufacture of firearms. Some swords
nnd other edged weapons were made
here upon special application.
Tbe gunmaker now stood by his
forge watching the white smoke as
it curled up toward the throat of tho
chimney. lie was a young man,
not over threo and twenty, and possessed a frame of moro than ordinary symmetry and muscular development, lie was not large—not above
tho medium size — but a single
clanco at tho swelling chest, the
broad shoulders nnd tho 6inewy
ridges of tho bare arms told at once
that he was master of great physical
power. Hi3 features were regular,
vet strongly marked and eminently
handsome. IIis brow, which was
full and high, was half covered by
the light brown curls that waved
over it, while bis eyes, which wero
of a bright, brilliant deep gray in
eolor, lent a cast of genius to the
intellect of the brow. His name
was Ruric Novel. His father had
been killed in tho then lato war with
the Turks, and tho 6on, leaving his
mother properly cared for, went to
Spain soon after tho bereavement.
There he found work in the most
noted armories, and now, well versed
in Iho trade, ho had returned to his
native city to follow bis calling
and support his mother.
Near by stood a boy—Paul Pee-
poir—a bright, intelligent lad, some
15 years of age, who bad bound bim-
Fclf to the gunmaker for tbe purpose of learning the art. His hair
and his eyes were darker than his
master's, and if he possessed not so
much sound intellect he certainly
possessed an unwonted degree of
l;een, quick wit and unswerving integrity.
The sun had been some time below tho horizon, and the only light
of any consequence that made
things partially visible within the
shop came from the dull blaze of
the coals on the forge, as Paul ever
and anon boro down upon the brake
that moved the bellows. Suddenly
Ruric started back from the forgo
as his mind broke from the deep
reverie into which he had fallen,
nnd, having bade his boy to see that
matters wero properly disposed for
the night, he turned toward the
door and was soon in the kitchen,
where his mother had supper all
prepared and set out.
Claudia Nevcl was a noble looking woman, if the impress of a noble, generous soul can be called
such, and tho light of her still handsome countenance was never brighter than when gazing upon her boy.
She had seen the snows of 50 winters, and if they had left 6omo silver upon her head and somo age
marks upon her face the Bunshine
of full as many summers had left
her with a thankful, loving heart
and a prayerful, loving soul.
"It is snowing ugain, faster than
ever," remarked Paul as he took his
seat at the table.
"Ah!" returned Ruric, resting his
knife a few moments while ho bent
his ear to listen to the voice of the
storm.  "I had hoped 'twould snow
no more for the present. The snow
is deep enough now. And how it
"Never mind," spoke the dame in
a trustful, easy tone; "it must storm
when it listetb, and we can only
thank God tbat wo have shelter and
pray for those wbo bave none."
"Amen!" responded Ruric fervently.
After this the trio remained some
minutes silent, seeming to bo busy
in listening to the storm notes that
came pealing about tho cot. The
wind was high, and tbe snow was
now dashing upon the windows with
a dreary, melancholy sound. The
meal was at length eaten and the table set back, and shortly afterward
I'aul retired to his bed. It was his
wont to retire early, for he rose
early to build the fires and prepare
for the labors of the day.
Ruric drew his chair close up to
the fireplace, and, leaning against
the jamb, he bowed his bead and
pondered again. This bad become
a habit with him of late. Sometimes he would sit thus during a
whole hour without speaking or
even moving, and bis mother did
not interrupt him, as she supposed
he might bo solving some mechanical problem that had arisen to bother
him. But these fits of thought had
become too frequent, too lengthy
and too moody for such a conclusion, and the good woman was forced to believe that tbey were caused
by something more remote than the
business of the forge or the lathe.
The youth now sat with his brow
resting upon his hand and his eyes
bent upon the hearth. Por half an
hour be bad not moved, and his
face wore an anxious, troubled look.
"Ruric, my son," spoke the mother at length in a low, kind tone,
"what is it that occupies your
thoughts so much?"
The young man started and turned his gaze upon his mother.
"Did you speak to me, my mother?" he asked after having recalled
bim mind to things about him.
"Yes, my boy," she said, "I did
speak to you. I asked you whnt it
was that occupied your thoughts."
"Oh, nothing, nothing," Ruric answered after some moments of hesitation. "1 was only thinking; that
wa3 all."
"I know you wero thinking, and
I know that was all at the time, but
of what, Ruric? Come, hide no secrets from your mother. I have noticed you of late, and I know you
aro changed. Tbat old smile is
gone from your faee, and sometimes
I havo feared tho gladness has
gone from your heart. 1 have seen
you bent in thought over your work
when 1 knew that of your work you
were not thinking, uud I have seen
you buried in deep thought when
you should bo reading or conversing with me."
"Have I, then, offended you,
my mother?"
"No, no; oh, no, my noble boy.
Never did such a thought enter my
mind. If 1 have been made uneasy
thereby, it was only in love for thee
and tho fear that thou wert not so
happy as in the past. Will you not
tell me all? Oh, I hope my boy
fears not to trust his mother with
his thoughts."
As she spoke thus she moved her
seat close to where Rurie sat and
placed her hand upon bis arm.
"Tell me, my boy," she added in
a low, persuasive tone, "what it is
that dwells thus upon your mind."
Ruric reached out and took his
mother*s hand, and, having gazed
for some moments into her face, ho
"Surely, my mother, I have nothing in my soul that I would hide
from thee. If 1 have kept my
thoughts to myself with unsceming
silence, it has been because I feared
you would laugh at mo if 1 told you
of them."
"Ah, no, my son," tho mother replied almost reprovingly. "Nothing
thut could claim such deep and absorbing consideration from a mind
like yours would move me to derision. Speak plainly, and be euro
of my sympathy."
A few momtnts more the youth
gazed silently upon his mother, and
then he answered:
"All this thought has been of one
person—of Rosalind Valdai."
Claudia Nevel started as sho
heard that name, and for the while
the color forsook her checks.
"What, my dear hoy, what of her
have you thought?" she asked tremulously.
"What but for one thing could I
think, my mother? You have seen
"Yes, Ruric."
"And you have marked the grace,
the loveliness, the soul given beauty
of the noble girl?"
"I know that sho is beautiful, my
son, und also that she is good; at
least so I think."
"Then whnt but love could move
me with deep thought of her? Oh,
my mother, I do love her I 1 love her
with the wholo strength of my heart
and soul."
"Alas, my Ruric, she will never
dare lor. thee 1" .
"You know not that," the youth
quickly replied, his eyes burning
deeply and his open brow flushing.
"Did I not know she loved mo be
sure I would never have allowed my
thoughts such range. We were children together, and even then we
loved. Fate has dealt differently by
us in the years that have passed
since those childhood times, but yet
I am sure that her love for me is
not changed, save as increasing age
must change all tbe emotions of
our nature into deeper, stronger
lights and shades."
"But think, my boy; you a mere
artisan, she the offspring of nobility
and the ward of a duke—a stern,
cold, proud aristocrat, who looks
upon our station only as harsh masters look upon tbeir beasts of burden. 1 fear you will find little else
but misery "in such a course of
"At least, my mother, I will see
Rosalind, and if she loves me as I
love her, and if she would accept my
"Hush, my boy. Do not cherish
such hopes. Why should she mate
with thee when the richest nobles of
the hind would kneel for her hand?"
"Hold!" cried Ruric, starting to
his feet, his handsome face flushed
and his bright eye burning. "Speak
not thus—at least not now. 1 flat-
tor not myself, but I claim a soul as
pure and a heart as noble a3 any
man in the land. My mind is as clear,
my hopes aro as high, my ambition
is as true to real greatness and
my will as firm as any of them. If
Rosalind seeks the love of a true
heart and the protection of stout
arms and determined success, then I
fear not to place myself by tho side
of any suitor in the land; but if
she seeks immediate wealth and the
glitter of somo high sounding title,
then—ah, I know she does not! But
let it pass now.   I will see her."
Claudia would not oppose the
wishes of her son, and she said no
*nore upon the subject. For awhile
jothing further was said, until Ruric remarked upon the increasing
force of the storm.
"Hark!" uttered his mother,
bending her ear in a listening attitude. "Was that a knock upon our
"Surely no one is out on such a
night that could seek shelter here,"
returned Ruric. "You must have"—
The youth did not finish the sentence, for at tbat moment the knock
came 60 loud that it was not to be
mistaken. The youth caught up the
candle and hastened to the door,
opened it, but the blast came roaring in, whirling a cloud of snow into Ruric's face and extinguishing
the light at once.
"Is thero any one here?" the gunmaker asked, bowing his head and
shielding his eyes from the driving
snow with one hand.
"Yes," returned a voice from the
Stygian darkness. "In God's name,
let me in, or I shall perish."
"Then follow quickly," said Ruric. "Here, give me your hand.
, There, now come."
Tho youth found the thickly
! gloved hand—gloved with the softest fur—and, having led the invisible applicant iuto the hall, he closed
the door and then led the way to
the kitchen. As soon as the candle
was relighted Ruric turned and gazed upon the newcomer. Ho was a
monk and habited something like
one of the black monks of St. Michael. He was of medium height
and possessed a rotundity of person
which was comical to behold. He
was fat and unwieldy and waddled
about with laughable steps. His
huge black robe, wbich reached
from his chin to his toes, was secured about the waist with a sash
of the same color, and the snow
which lay upon tho shoulders and
back presented a striking contrast.
Rurie brushed away tbe snow with
his own hand, nnd having taken his
visitor's thick fur bonnet the latter
took a scat near the lire.
Before a word was spoken the
youthful host carefully examined
bis guest's features, nnd the latter
seemed equally desirous of discovering what manner of people he had
fallen in with. The monk's face
was u peculiar one. The features
wcro very dark and prominent and
almost angular in their strongly
marked outlines. His brow was
very strong in mental development,
and his eyes were dark nnd brilliant.
The slight circle of hair that escaped from beneath tho tight skullcap which ho retained upon his
head was somewhat tinged with silver, though his face did not betray
such advanced age as this silvery
hair would seem to indicate.
"You have been caught in a severe storm, good father," 6aid the
youth after his guest had somewhat
recovered from tho effect of the
"Aye, that I have, my son," the
monk returned in a deep, rumbling
tone. "I left the Kremlin this morning little thinking of such a change.
This storm has commenced 6ince I
started on my return. Ahout half
a mile from hero my horse got foundered in the snow, and I left him
with an honest peasant and then
started to make the rest of my way
on foot, but I reckoned wildly. The
driving storm blinded me, and the
piling drifts swallowed mo up at every dozen steps. My body is not
very well adapted to such work. Ha,
ha, ha! But I saw your light, and I
determined to seek shelter here for
tho night. By St. Michael, but this
is a most severe storm. Yet you
are comfortable here."
"Aye, father, wo try to bo comfortable," said Ruric. "My mother
could hardly survive a winter in
some of the dwellings which stand
The monk made no answer to
this save a sort of commendatory
nod, and shortly afterward the
youth asked .*
"Do you belong here in the city,
-good father?" \
y "Aye, at present I do," the monk
returned. And then, with a smile,
he added: "I suppose you would like
to know whom you have thus received. My name is Vladimir, and
my home is wherever I may chance
to be on God's heritage. At present
I am residing here in Moscow.
There, could you ask me to be more
frank ?"
Ruric smiled, but he made no direct reply. He was too deeply interested in the face of tho monk
to enter with much eagerness into
conversation. At length the guest
asked if he could be accommodated
with some sleeping place, and, having answered in the affirmative, the
youth lighted another candle and
conducted him to a chamber which
was located directly over the kitchen and which was very well warmed by means of several iron tubes
that connected with the furnace below.
"Mother," uttered Ruric as soon
as ho had returned to the kitchen,
"who is that man?"
"How should I know?" the woman replied.
"But have you never seen him before?" Ruric asked in an earnest,
eager tone.    '
"I cannot tell, my son. His face
most surely calls up some strange
emotions in my mind, but I think I
never saw him before."
"And yet he seems familiar to
me," the son resumed. "Those eyes
I surely have seen before, but tc
save my soul I cannot remember
when nor where."
And so Ruric pondered, but to
no avail. After he had retired to
his bed he lay awake and thought
of the strange face, and all through
the night his dreams were but startling visions of the black monk.
When Ruric came down in tho
morning, he found the monk already there and breakfast nearly
ready. But littlo wos snid during
the mealtime, for the monk seemed
busy with thoughts of his own, and
Ruric was too much engaged in
studying the strange man's features
and pondering upon the various
doubts and surmises that had entered his mind. After the menl was
over the monk accompanied the
gunmaker to his shop, and there he
spent some time in examining the
quaint articles of machinery that
were used in the manufacture of
Ruric was engaged in finishing a
pair of pistols, and for some minutes the monk had stood silently by
his side watching his movements.
At length tbofyouth stopped in his
work and laid the pistol down.
"Excuse me, good father," he
said rather nervously, at the same
time gazing his visitor in the face,
"but 1 must ask you a question.
Where have I seen you before?"
"How should I know?" the monk
returned, with a smile.
"Why," resumed Ruric, with some
hesitancy, "I knew not but that you
might enlighten mo. I have surely
seen you somewhere."
"And are there not hundreds
whom you have seen in this great
city, aye, thousands, whom you
•might recognize as you recognize
"Ah, it may be so, but not like
this. There may be a thousand
faces I would recollect to have seen,
but uot one of them would excite
even u passing emotion in my soul.
But your face calls up some powerful emotion, some startling memory
of the past, which bothers me. Who
are you, good father? What are
you? Where have we met before?
Was it in Spain?"
"No," said Vladimir, with a shake
of the head. And then, with a
more serious shade upon his face,
he added: "Let this pass now. I
will not deny to you that there may
be some grounds for your strange
fancies, but I assure you most sacredly that until last night I never
came in direct companionship with
you before—at any rate, not to my
knowledge. You have acted the
good Samaritan toward me, and I
hope I may at some time return the
"No, no!" quickly responded the
youth. "If you return it, then it
will bo a favor no more. I have
only done for you what every man
should do lo his neighbor, and so
far from needing thanks for my
services I would rather give them
for the occasion, for I know of no
source of joy so pure and pleasur*
ablo as that feeling ^in the soul
which tells us we have done a good
The dark monk reached forth and
took the youthful artisan's hand,
and, with moro than ordinary emotion, he said:
"You touch the harp strings of
the soul with a noble hand, my
son, and if any deed of kindness
can give me joy it will be a deed
for you. We may meet again, and
until then I can only say, God bless
and prosper thee."

The following from the Fort Collins
Express shows something of the eondl-
tlous affecting the lamb feeding industry in Colorado:   "It Ib beginning to be
quite a serious problem for the lamb
feeders how to provide grain for the
feeding.   Corn Is selling at J1.32 per
hundredweight, and its importation has
practically ceased. Oats and barley are
quoted at S1.25 and wheat nt $1.10. The
feeders are quietly scouring the country picking up wheat, and the competition between them and the flour mills
is likely to be quite active.    Some remember n winter live or Blx years ago
when some Nebruskans came in here
with lambs and quietly bought nil tlie
wheat in sight, compelling Ihe millers
lo import grain to keep their mills going.   The wheat is cracked for use and
is said  to be uu excellent  substitute
j for the corn, but If even It cannot be
! obtained the buying of lambs must per-
I force cense.   It would seem as if those
j who raised spelt's are in luck.   The ex-
| perienee of those who have tried It in-
dlentes that It Is nbout. If not quit,', us
good as corn, and yields of sixty bushels per acre are not uncommon."

Some Points on Feeding and Slttlns;
and  the Care of Goallns-B.
In answer to queries received by the
American Poultry Journal and referred
to Mrs. B. F. IIUlop that lady writes:
We have never raised geese by confining the flock to a certain amount of
ground nnd can hardly say how many
birds could be accommodated on two
and a half to four acres the entire season through, hut If Ihc land Is kept
producing all the grass or other green
forage It will there could he quite a
flock kept iu this space, but there Is
one tiling sure—to get tlie best returns
from geese they should at all times
have au abundance of green food dur-
Ing tlie warm season or while the stock
Is breeding aud tlie young stock growing. Old geese can rough it and can
sland very short rations In the winter
nud we really believe that they are bet
ter breeders on account of it, althougl
we give our birds quite good care since
we became Interested In the faucy.
Were we to start, ns your correspondent proposes, we should start with
about two pens, uot more than three.
I say "pens" because oue has better
success ull around by mating one male
witli from two to four femnles before
the mating season commences.
After all the eggs are set the first
two clutches are all a big breeder can
afford to set, as late ones require too
much care. The old birds cau then be
run In one flock, saving room nnd trouble. Tlie number of goslings raised
from one goose Is affected so much by
conditions that we can hardly give any
certain number as a rule. If there is
un average of twelve, we should consider It excellent The most we have
ever raised was seventeen. We had
five others that we let die by not
knowing how to care for the late
hatched ones, but we only had one female muted to the male. This was not
because we think single mating is the
best, but because there Is always better success with n small flock. This is
true of all domestic fowls. We would
sow clover, as It Is hardy nud produces
abundantly, but mixed with other
grasses we And tbat blue grass ns a
body makes tbo best pasture. Water
grass and wild rice will no doubt be
tine for the pool.
The goslings, unless the weather la
warm, sliould he permitted to swim Id
the pool. They may be kept wlthir
bounds by a fence of wire netting on-
nnd n hnlf to two feet high, or a twelvi
Inch boaid will pen them till the}
are big. We do not npprove of keep
Ing them In close quarters after thej
are teu days or two weeks old. Exer
else Is good for them as well as other
fowls, although they cau be reured
with very little. In such cases, however, the vigor Is not all that It should
be. The goslings may be driven or coaxed anywhere and nre so easily handled
that In ease of a rainstorm they enn
be driven to shelter and will most
likely seek it themselves if taught to
do so. Un fen the red goslings cauuot
stand much raiu. Do nut feed grain
till the young are three days old, but
see that they are well supplied with
grecfl food, drinking water and grit
During this period we feed them corn
bread or mash.
We have uever set goose eggs in an
Incubator, but would give a chicken
lieu six or seven goose eggs thnt would
ordinarily cover fifleen hen eggs. In
starting, n breeder Is supposed to start
with good, vigorous birds. Females
should be two years old If he wishes
to raise quite a number of goslings from
each goose. The birds should be given
care, range, water, grit and a little
grain during the breeding season. The
females should uot be permitted to sit
ou the lirst clutch of eggs. The goose
Is a good sitter and a good mother, but
we prefer to rear tbe young with the
domestic hen. We presume that a
brooder would be Just as satisfactory.
If properly managed and cleaned, but
cleaning It would be quite a chore.
Besides, they ouly require a mother for
a short period. Generous feeding after
the young ouee get thoroughly started

In grafting a seedling one or
two years old the graft is put
on just ubove the ground and but
one cutting is used. To graft a
treo to cliango the fruit is another
matter nnd instead of cutting tha
tree off below the limbs threo or four
of tlie lower limbs are cut off eight
or ten inches from tht) trunk
or the main branch and two cuttings or grafts are placed in each
limb. Should the operation prove
successful tho following year all
tho branches above tho grafts
may be removed with little danger
of losing the tree. A tree of
most any age may bo grafted in

should be wedge shape. Figure B
gives an idea how tho limb appears
with a split top in which the
grafts are set. Two cuttings
should be placed in each limb
to be sure of a good stand. After they are placed in position
some orchardists bind them in place
with cord or twine to make
them secure before the grafting
wax is applied, This answers as
a safeguard, but is not absolutely
necessary. In placing tho scion
it is important to havo the
inner barK of the scion and stock
come together so that the sap will
flow from the treo to the cutting,
After this is done tho wax should
be. applied so that tho Joint or
splico is well covered, thus keeping out tho air and water. Should
all tho grafts live tho wealtor ones
•hould be pruned away.
II. 'idling Manure ln Cold Weather.
An article on tho handling of manure in u recent number of this paper
interested me greatly. I have obtained the best results by hauling
out manure and making in piles ln
tho fall, when other work is not
crowding. I clean out my stables
thoroughly, adding all tha loose
chaff and straw of the threshing
yard. It is not at all necessary that
the straw be rolled when put out.
I put five loads in a pile. With a
road scraper I go over my barnyard and with the scrapings cover
the. piles to a depth of about six
inches, leaving them fiat on top that
through the winter tho Water may
soak in nnd rot the manure.
After plowing in the spring I run
the harrow over to level the ground,
then spread tho manure ami dirt
from tho piles. It gets well mixed
in the handling. I spread as evenly
as possible, then go over with a cultivator and follow this with a harrow. This leaves tho ground in as
line condition as can bo desired. This
past season on land prepared this
way I raised three acres of as fine
tobacco as 1 havo over grown. The
land was in corn tho year before
ami was not vory good land at that.
I grew my tobacco one season by
glutting my manure in the hill. It
did well, but the year following whon
sown to grain, tho luttcr grew in
bunches and was not satisfactory,
simply becauso tho fertilizer was not
evenly spread. This trouble is obviated by the method described.—American Agriculturist,
!■ Too Well Known to Hosts of Nerve-Exhausted Men and Women -The Fatal Error
of Using Opiates.
To lie awake night after night, the brain on fire with nervous excitement and thoughts flashing before
tlie mind in never-ending variety, is the common experience of persons whoso nerves are weak and exhausted.
During such nights nerve force is consumed at a tremendous rate.
Instead of being restored and reinvigorated for another day's wear and tear tho body is further weakened und exhausted and the mind is unbalanced by this terrible waste of energy which the lamp of life is rapidly burning out.
It is in this despairing conditionthat many men nnd women attempt to drug and deaden tho nerves by
the use of opiates.   This is a fatal step which hastens nerve decay.
Surely it is wiser to build up and completely restore tho nerves by using Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, a treatment which gets right down to the foundation of the difficulty and effects permanent results by revitalizing
the wasted nerve cells.
Sleeplessness is only ono of the many distressing symptoms which entirely disappear with tho use of Dr,
Chaso's Nerve Food. It is a positive cure for weakness of nerves and body, and is specific for woman's ills
becauso they almost invariably arise from exhausted nerves. 50 cts. a box, 6 boxes for $2.50, at all dealers

TWO That Were Served  la Delmon-

ITobably the most expensive dinner
ever given at Delmonico's old restaurant, on Fourteenth street, New York,
wns that given by Mr. Morton Teto to
the tea and coffee merchants of New
York, 200 In number. It cost $25,000.
The rarest wines and the most elaborate decorations were mere incidents.
The menu cards were of gold, and the
guests sat on silk cushions on which
their names were embroidered. Ia the
center of the table was a miniature
lake in which swam swans taken from
Central park. Clara Louise Kellogg re
celved $1,000 for singing two songs at
this feast and a present besides of •
diamond bracelet. The salou was
smothered ln flowers.
Another dinner given at one of ths
Delmonlco establishments for ten people cost $400 a plate. It was luxurious
enough to be classical. The waiters,
Ave of them, were dressed as sailors.
The host was a yachtsman, and he
bought the waiters' clothes. The guests
drank, or, rather, tasted, every vinted
liquor that ever 1ms been brought to
America. They finished with a pousse
cafe made of eleven liqueurs. Before
each plate sat a cut glass basin about
twenty Inches In diameter and four
inches deep. Each was nearly filled
with water perfumed with attar of
rotes, on the surface of which floated
half open pond lilies. In the basin a
perfect model of the yacht owned by

A Story of a Woman who made up
Her Mind That she had suffered
long enough—The Means Employed
to Cure Her Hnve Cured Thousands
Hock Dale, C. B., May 3.-^-(Special)
—Mrs. David Kiley, of this village,
suffered for over eight years before
she found a cure.
She hud Female Weakness of a very
aggravated form, causing her feuriul
pains. Her buck pained her something dreadful.
She could not lift anything and
was dizzy-headed all the time. After trying many medicines with 110
good results, she was becoming altogether discouraged, so much so
that she thought she would have to
give up.
Xo wonder that she felt like giving
up ! Every woman who has .suffered
in this way wilt understand how low
spirited and broke* a woman feels
when called upon to endure these extremely distressing symptoms.
But Mrs. Riley didn't give up. A
friend advised her to try Dodd's Kidney Pills, and she began thu treatment oi' this medicine.
After using four boxes she was
much better, She felt a great deal
.stronger, the dizziness had gone.
The pains in her back had disappeared, and she kept on using the pills.
She snys :
"If it had not been for Dodd's Kidney Pills I would have had to give
up. They are certainly a wonderful
mediciiiC and have done more for me
and my sickness than all the other
other medicines 1 ever took.
I can and will highly recommend
Dodd's Kidney Pills to all weak women who suffer as I suffered."
No woman need suffer a moment
longer. Dodd's Kidney Pills have
cured and are curing thousands of
weak women.
Many of your sisters have told
their story for publication and very
many have testified but not for publication. All join in praising the
remedy that has done more for the
suffering womanhood of Canada than
all  other means combined.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are Weak Woman's Best Friend.

(Compiled from The Commercial)
WHEAT — The northwest spring
wheat crop is being greatly delayed
in seeding owing to frequent snow
and rain storms, and the general expectation is that in the older sections the acreage under wheat will
be decreased. European crops still
continue to promise well, und there
s no chance in the reports regarding them. At the present the quantities being shipped from Argentine
are showing larger than expected,
and running somewhat larger than
last year. Australian und Indian
shipments are light, but from North
America, itussia and the Danube they
uro liberal, and the amount on passage to Europe is very large and
shows no decrease from week to
week. This causes tho European
trade to remain indifferent und they
are working in a hand to mouth
fashion, not anxious to buy ahead as
freely, as they would do if they were
sure of a scarcity in tlte future.
In the local market Manitoba wheat
has been steady, but not active.
Prices neither advance nor decline as
they do on the American markets,
and tho exporters are not buying
freely by any means. Tho price of 1
northern varied from 74}£c on Monday to 7G94e Friday, a good deal
been sold around 74% to 75c for spot

There are many forms uf heart disease, some of which manifest themselves by symptoms which aro misunderstood by the sufferer and ascribed to indigestion or somo similar
cause, when the heart is really affected. Tho slightest derangement of

dangerous. If at times the notion of
the pulse is too rapid and the heart
beats violently, resulting in a sulfu-
cating feeling, or, if tlie heart seems
inclined to stop boating, the pulse
becomes slow, and you feel a faint
diz/y sensation, you should take tho
best course in the world, and that is
to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for

distressing symptoms promptly disappear and that the heart at all

The directors of the St. Eugene hnve
Issued a report, a part of which is as follows: "St. Eugene Consolidated Mining company, limited: Our holdings in
this company still stand nt 640,000 shares
of the par value, of one dollar etich. Owing to the low price of lead, and the fact
that none of the Canadian smelters
could handle the output, the St. Eugene
concentrator was only operated for about
five months in 1901. During that time
about 11,000 tons of silver lead concentrates were shipped, mo tly to Antwerp.
The St. Kugene Consolidated hns paid
two dividend?, amounting to $210,000,
and at the end of its financial year had a
cash balance 011 hand of $125,359.67.
The Canadian Gold Fields syndicate,
limited, received $38,400 in dividends
from the St. Kugene Consolidated, while
our holdings in tlmt company only cost
us $145,448.23. lt will be thus seen that
the Investment wits a highly pt oii table
one, us it yielded U:; a return on our investment of over 25 pr.r cent for 1901
Development work has been steadily on
itll through the year, aud there are now
over 200 oou tons of o.e blocked out in
sight in tbe iniup. A shaft has been
sunk for a distance 1 f 140 feet {or 60 feet
below the level of Moyie lake), and
there it* uo water to bother or interfere
with the work. A level is being driven
I25 feet below the collar of tbe shaft nnd
m a short time the big ore shoots nl-
reody opened up in the tunnels above
will be developed ou this new level.
This will practically double the an onut
of ore In sight. These ore shouts have
-ilready beeu proved to a depth of 300
f*;et by diaraor.d drills, so it is merely a
sues Hon of doing the work to block out
the ore."

Fort S.eele Prospector: Mr. John
Swausou, of Canby, Minn., arrived hi
town Thursday. Mr. Swausou is interested in theCanby group of mines which
are situated on Wolf creek, and he is
here for the purpose of conferring with
the other owners about the development
of the  property* Messrs.   Henry and
Chlsbolm, who have a placer claim on
Wild Horse creek, have run a tunnel in
over 100 feet. The object of lhe tnnnel
is the finding of what is supposed to be
an old channel of the creek, which they
expect to strike in about 50 feet.
J, M. Ilulpin, of Kaslo, ai rived iu
town Tuesday evening from the St. Mary's valley where he has been doing his
annual assessment on his property. He
struck a new lead this time lower down
on his claims in a basin that was covered wiih a wash. He made an open cut
and uncovered a fine vein of galena thut
measured 5 feet 3 inches and tb.e walls
are well defined. U was a surprise to
him as he was not expecting a showing
of galena aud this one is large euough
to make him feel good over the find.
Mr. Ilaipin has been in this valley every
season for the past four yeara, and he is
more firmly convinced than ever that as
soon as tnnt section Is given transportation it will piove veiy  rich in minerals.
