The   Royal Hotel
Work Will Be Resumed On the Marys*
ville Smelter.
A Large Force of Men Will Be
Pot to Work on the Buildings  Without Delay.
Cranbrook Herald.
The people of South East Kootenay
have been in tensely interested in the
OUtCOQie of the Marysville smelter pro
ject. The people know that the Sullivan
mine is classed among tlie best ol lead
properties in British Columbia, and lhat
the smelter at Marysville was projected
for the purpose of handling the ore of
tbnt mine. They know that there has
been large slims of money expended up
to date on Lhe smelter, but the silence
on the part of the company lhe past two
mouths has given rise to a feeling of uneasiness. The following article from
the Spokesman-Review will bring rebel
to the minds of muny, since it indicates
that there is soon to be a resumption of
the work:
One of the Inlet eating questions agitating Spokane mining circles is the status
of the affairs of the Sullivan group of
lead mines at Kimberley, If, C All
sorts of rumors are currect as  io  the
building   of   lhe   proposed smelter plan'
at Marysville, 11. C.
Several mouths ago the company decided that tbe only way the properly
could be operated nt a profit was to
build a smelter for lhe treatment of its
oie According!}* lhe capital slock was
increased 500,otto shares, whicll were
pledged for a loau of $100,000 with
which to build the smelter.
Cl.iy suitable for lhe manufacture el
brick rt rr discovered ou the properly,
buck kilns were erected and work was
begun, under the direction of Manage)
Austin, preparatory tb the construction
of the smeller. The actual coustructfou
of the smelter was begun aud carried almost to completion! when it was discov
ered that the plans would have to be
changed; iu other words, 'hat nearly the
entire plant would have lobe remodeled
As a result Manager Austin stepped
down and out. and a new manager was
secured, a Mr. Klui-'-ndoi f, of Colorado
The new manager made a detailed report of the conditions at the smelter
about two months fte,", but the directors
refused to give out anything foi' publication. The refusal of tin directors to
make public the affairs of lhe company
has ltd lo all sorts of rumors.
Une of these rumors is to the effect
that ever $50,000 has been expended on
the plant, and lhat this amount will be
almost a total loss to lhe company. It
is also staled that unless additional
Innds are secured the compatty will be
unable lo carry out its plans as originally intended. Il is said that lhe foil tula •
lions of the smokestacks were defective,
and lhat what had not fallen down
would bave to be rebuilt, lu short, the
plant was said lo be in such bad shape
thai tts abandonment was being considered.
The Spokesman-Review h is received
several Inquiries during the past few
days relative to lhe status of the Sullivan group. The ouly definite information obtainable is lo lhe effect tbat the
company has 110 intention ot discontinuing the woik 011 Hie smelter plant.
Senator George Tinner, who is president of the company, when interrogated
last evening said: "There is absolutely
no truth in (he statement lhat the smelter project is to be abandoned. Oa lhe
other hand, lhe company is going ahead
with the work, and we expect to put on
a full lotce of meu not later than September i, and lo be smelting ore within
bo di»ys thereafter.
"We ate now working n force of io
meu and have been right along since
Manager Eltncndorf look charge of (he
plant. The full force of men will be put
on ns soon George Hull, who h-s general supei vision of the woik, returns from
lhe east."
Senator Turner declined lo be interviewed as to Manager RlmendorPs report and as to whether additional lamb
would be required (o complete ihe
Later News.
The Herald is in receipt of good news.
It ha* positive Information that Instructions have been given Lo resume work on
the smelter buildings aud tli.it every-
Hi ing has been Sflllsfacloi iiy adjusted,
Manager Hull will return from the east
in a few days, bul in lhe meantime woi k
will be pushed on the buildings lu accordance lo the modified plans.
This hotel is now open and ready for guests.
11. 1). McMillen, formerly with the Cranbrook  Hotel, is
the proprietor, antl he proposes lo have
m*wmmi^*wm m^mmmmmm
a profit, it is belter to leave the ore
where it is for the present. \\
"I do uot look for much rise in the
markets for the next two years, so that
we must look for cheaper smelting rates
or cheaper transportation facilities.
There was, as you are aware, a loss in
shipping the 1000 tons of ore. A profit
would have beeu made had the ore been
shipped direct to the smelter at the time
it was lauded at lhe river, but while it
lay there waiting for navigation to open
the market quotations kept going down.
Hut it was necessary to have the ore
smelted, even at a loss, iu oider to get
back part of the capital invested. Kven
the test shipment oi S50 '.ons of the best
grade of ore made this season did not
return n profit.
"The difficulty in West Kootenay today is due to the fact lhat lhe meu hove
quit operating their mines on investing
capital and want the ore to pay for mining It. My experience has taught me
that ore must be unned at a profit Capital must be spent on development, but
when ore is found It must pay for the
Cost of mining it.
'There is ouly oue way in which conditions cau be changed so tbat the Paradise may continue to work, and that is
by the construction of a wagon road
Irom the Toby road up Spring creek
basin, which would do away v.ith the
heavy cost of rawhldlng. That would
make a saving of about f>2 to the ton."
New Supply of Coke.
Nelson, B C, Aug. 15.— Assistnnt-
Superiuteudeul Flumerfelt and Smelter
Manager Hodges of tlie Granby Consul
idalad, arrived iu the cily today, return
ing from a trip to Fernie and Michel to
see how soon sufficient coke could be
shipped to permit the smelters to run
again. Michel is turning out 180 tons of
coke per day, and Fernie about 10. By
the end of the week repairs to some of
the tunnels at Coal creek will bave beeu
made sufficient to get out enough for
tunning purposes, The present output
is being laid by as a reserve to be divided between all lhe smelters.
Paradise Slur I Down.
S, S. Fowler, the well known mining
engineer of Nelson, expressed himself
as follows to the Wilmer Outcrop, re-
gaidiug the Paradise mine, located in
that territory :
"I make two visits a year to the Paradise, but it occupies too much lime in
coming from Nelson lo make more fie
queiit visits. The Paradise is looking
better now than it ever has I do not
say lhat ihe Paradise is a mine, but it is
a very promising prospect," remarked
Mr. Fowler, quite pleasantly, bid he
continued, now seriously:
"Much as I prefer not to, I must ad
vlse»Mr. Hammond to close the Paradise
down. I realize Ihal it will seriously effect this district and very much regret il
but in justice lo my client I must advise
that the workings be do/ed for a year,
or until conditions are better for mining
low grade silver-lead ore. A very favor
able Impression of the Paradise exists
among mining men In West Kootenay
aud it is, as I --aid before, a very promising prospect. Hut as Ibe ore rutin
under existing conditions, be handled ut

The St. Marys Valley is bound to be
one of the richest mineral seel ions in all
of South East Kootenay.
The more lhe country around Marysville is prospected, tbe mote tbe people
are convinced that it la a very rich territory.
Out of $7,900,000 worth of copper
shipped from Canada to the United
States,   the Boundary country shipped
over $2,000,000.
Mr. McPeak and boys, who have been
placer mining at Palmer's liar, have met
with very good success, although they
are using only crude appliances.
Fred Hazen brought down some mag
11 ili<cut specimens of native copper
from his claim ou the St. Mary's river.
There have been few If any In the district that would equal it.
The tunuel in the Clover I^enf property has been completed lo within nbout
30 feet of tbe shaft, and as soon as finished development work will be resumed. Tbe prospects for this property
are brighter than ever.
The low price of lead and copper bas
caused prospectors to lake an increased
interest in gold bearing quarlz. South
Bast Kootenay has many sections lhat
promises rich returns for development,
anil as a consequence the next year may
bruin forth some paying gold properties

An Imposition.
Cranbrook Herald.
Last week the Robinson-* McKenzie
company were seeking the services of a
cook. One came from Fertile bul when
he arrived one had already been employed. Mr. Robinson then offered to
pay the man's fare bark to Ferine or try
and get him a situation, He found him
a place aud all seemed satisfactory. A
few days later, however, Mr. Robinson
was served with a summons citing bim
to appear iu Fernie to defend a suit
brought for wages. It would have been
cheaper for him to have paid the de-
maud bul he refused to do it and went
to Feriiie. When his side of lhe case
was -dated in coui t judgment was immediately reudered iu his favor and the
prosecution mulcted in the sum of
for costs.
This should serve as a lesson to lawyers who listen to tales of woe by irresponsible parties und make unnecessary
expense and trouble for reputable companies.
Important Move In Fernie,
Cranbrook  Herald:
A monster petition has been piepared
in Ferine, asking thai that part of the
district be set aside aud that Iv. S.
Forbes, chief constable, be appointed
government ngent and stipeudary magistrate. There is a good deal behind
this move, and tbe people of tbat town
ure deteituiued to carry it through.

When the Cranbrook baseball team

dently expected that tbey would win
tbe game at Pincher and break even al

one pitcher, tbey would be able to win
three games In succession In as many
days, having their rest broken In the
meantime by railway travel. Hut the
result of Lhe trip shows that Manager
Small bad chosen his meu well, and
that every man played Ids poslLlon with
a determination to uphold the reputation of the team and prove Lhelr ability !

Malcolm T, Itch, manager of tbe well-
known Lei tell Brothers' flour mills ut
(> tk L-nke, Man., was in town this
week. Mr. I-eiteb is an old resident of
Manitoba, ami being a close observer ol
conditions is well posted on western
Canada. Speaking of the marvelous increase of business in that section, he
said: 'Canada lias never seen anything
like it. The laud boom is ou, and nothing cau Btop it now. From Winnipeg
to Mediciue Hat the trains are crowded
each day, nud at Aloosejaw, which is the
gateway for a large portion of the immigration from the States, tbe platform
is crowded daily with hundreds of people from the other side hurrying to some
part of tbe territories in search of land.
In Winnipeg the same conditions exist.
It is difficult io realize what this will
mean to Canada, for it is a working
population tbat is coming iu, men with
money and energy to develope the idle
lauds of this country. And if the promises of this year's yield is fulfilled, there
will be a greater rush than ever. The
prospects up to date were never better.
Kxeept in a few places, the wheat will
run from 30 to 40 bushels to the acre.
Drouth is the worst feature our farmers
have to contend with, so that one can
form some idea of conditions wheu the
bad places are due to wet, low ground.
Already thousands of bushels of last:
year's crop are being hurried to market
to make room for the new crop. Prosperity can be seen from Winnipeg to the
British Columbia line, but it seems to
stop there. In fact, Hritisli Columbia
seems to be the only province in the
Dominion thai is not forging ahead this
year. It is hard to understand It. I
suppose, of course the depression in
mining has a good deal to do with il.
Eastern people have beeu bitten so often
on wild cat miuefl that tbey are afraid to
invest. Tbey have got to learn tbat
mining must be  handled   like any other
legitimate business, aud promoters of
nn ling • >tnpanies must learn to be bones I In in Investment of funds furnished
foi 'ii vi lepment. Investors do not ob-
jii l to p tying good salaries to men in
charge ol mines, but they don't want
tbem to gobble evei ylbing tn sight, But
il will all come out right, because the
province is rich in resources."
Small Ranching.
t'rnnbrouk Herald.
The growth of this district during the
next few years Is going to make small
ranching a profitable business. The development ol the cool aud Iron mines,
with the progress made on oilier mineral properties, and the consequent increase in every other line of business,
means that from Kitchener to Blairmore
there is to be 11 great population. This
will give au Increasing market for feed,
stock, chickens and eggs. There are
many places iu the district where small
faiins could be successfully operated,
and tbe time will soon be here when
tbey will be in demand. Tbere is no
money in the business, however, for the
many satisfied wiih two or three acres of
grass and a dozen hens. It will take
energy aud business ability combined
The result will be big profits.

Cranbrook Herald.
Mrs. James Greer, who is stopping at
Halcyon Hot Springs, writes Mr. Greer
of a narrow escape sbe bad one evening
last week. A party of guests at the
hotel were going for a ride on tbe lake
in a gasoline launch to a point several
miles away. It hud been arranged to
leave at 7 o'clock, but the owner of the
launch told them that he would uot be
ready to get away before S o'clock.
This did not suit a number who were
there for their health, as they did not
care to stay out too long in lhe night
air. Mrs, Greer was nmong those who
declined to go, but a party was made up
of several gentlemen and girls iu the
botel. When the boat had come about
a mile aud a half 011 tbe return trip, u
sheet of flame suddenly daited out of
tbe engine aud ignited the dress of oue
of the girls, who was at once a mass of
flames. Iu a frenzy of fear she jumped
iuto the lake, followed by one of the
gentlemen. Fortunately they were near
the shore and the couple were able to
get to land, but the girl was badly
burned. The engineer and two or three
of the passengers were injured by the
flames. They all escaped in the small
boat behind and had not gotten mote
than 25 feet away when the engine exploded aud completely wrecked the
launch. Tbe parly was taken out at a
point near where tbe accident occurred,
and did not get back to the hotel until
the next morning. Naturally Mr. Greer
is feeling very good over ibe fact that
his wife failed tu be one of tbe unloi-
tuuate party.

"Let me explain here, sire," interrupted the Juke ;is liis puppet hesi-
niicil, l'l his man mny not know
properly nbout tbnt mission. Living uiiii me is a young girl, a ward
of mine, a gentle, timid being, who
lias been somewhat a comfort to me
in iny loneliness. In childhood she
was acquainted with this liuric Novel, and now the fellow has presumed I hereupon several times to insult
her of late with his disgusting familiarity. She dared not remonstrate with him fnr fear of violence,
so she referred tlio mailer lo mo.
The count lias been anxious to win
her fnr n wife, so I thought him not
on improper person to send on the
delicate mission. Accordingly 1
wrote a sort of promise in the form
of n voluntary assurance pledging
(he signer not to mako himself familiar wiih the lady any more. And
al lhe same time he received the assurance that his presence was very
disagreeable to the persqn mentioned. This I supposed he would sign
at once, and as the count aspired to
her hand I deemed it no more than
ri^'ht that he should render her this
service. .Now, 6ire, this gentleman
may continue."
Thus bidden Urzen resumed:
"The noble count was desirous,
sire, thnt I should accompany him,
and 1 did so. Upon reaching the
man's shop we found him at work
upon a gunloek, 1 think. lie received tbe nolo, but refused lo sign
it. The count urged dim to sign in
mild, persuasive language until the
fellow became insolent. Then he
used some stronger terms, and 1
think he made some threat of wdiat
he would do if his insults to the lady
were repealed, nnd thereupon tlio
gunmaker si ruck him n furious
blow in the face and knocked him
down. I cannot remember oil the
threatening language which the fellow used, but it was fearful."
"And how about the duel?" asked
the emperor.
In answer lo this Urzen went on
nnd related what he had prepared
on Iho subject, and it need only bo
said that Iho report was about on a
par wiih what we have already
nenrd. lie oven went so far as to
swear thnt lhe count had tried repealed!)- In compromise matters after lhe conflict had begun, that-he
begged nf Nevel to give up the bailie, but Ihul iho laltor, thirsting for
ihe young nobleman's blood, kep(
boilv. mail!, nt it.
it was at this juncture and without referring to the surgeon thnt
the emperor sent for liuric, and,
having learned that a lieutenant of
the Khilngorod guard wns present
at the duel, he sent for him also.
Orsa arrived lirst and was present
when Ruric came.
And now liuric Nevel stood he-
tore his emperor. l'et»r gazed upon
him fnr some moments, and then he
"Sir, thy bearing is bold."
"Why should it not be, sire, when
I stand beforo one whom I honor
and respect and do not fear?" So
spoke Ruric calmly and with peculiar dignity.
"-Not fear?" repeated the autocrat sternly.
"Xo, sire. 1'eter nf Russia is not a
man to bo feared by those who love
and honor lum."
'"Insolence!" uttered the duke.
The emperor looked up into his
fare, ami he added:
"Now, sire, you can see for yourself some of his traits of character.''
"Aye," returned Peter, "1 sec.
They are wonderful. I knew not
thnt among mv artisans thero wore
men of such boldness."
Tho duke knew not how to interpret this, nnd he moved back a
".Now, sir," resumed Peter, turning to tbo gunmaker, "how dared
you strike a Russian nobleman?"
" 1 did not, sire. Conrad Damonoff
came to my shop, and he brought
mo a paper in whieh I was required
or ordered to relinquish ull claims
to the band of"—
"Sire," interposed the duke, "lie
"Never mind," broke in tho om-
peror, with an authoritative wave nf
the hand, "we will hear nothing
ahout ihe lady here. Why did you
si rilce lhe count ?"
"Recause, sire, he descended from
his station and striiek me. He
threw away (he shield which shnuld
protect tho nobfeuian and struck
me without provocation."
"And then you knocked him
down ?"
"I did, sire."
"And perhaps you would have
done the same In me."
"Sire," answered the youth quickly, "when Damonoll' tried hy threats
lo make me sign his paper I told
him there was hut one man on
earth at whose order 1 would do
lh.it thing. The man who has the
right to command shall never have
occasion lo strike me."
Thero was something in this reply
nnd more in the tone and bearing nf
him whn spoke it that made tho
duke tremble, lie saw plainly that
the emperor's eyes sparkled with admiration as thev rested uuon the
"But now about this duel," resumed lie emperor. "How dared
you take advantage of the count in
the con diet?"
"Advantage, sire?" repeated the
youth in surprise.
"Aye. Did he not, Stephen Urzen ?"
"He did, sire," replied (he mnn
thus addressed.
"And which of (he two do you call
the best swordsman ?" Peter asked.
"Why, sir, the count is or was
vastly his superior."
"And wdiat say you, sir lieutenant?"
Alaric trembled, for this was addressed to him. He knew that lhe
duke wns anxious to crush his
friend, and ho feared to draw tlie
wrath of that powerful nobleman
down upon his head, lint a happy
thought came to his aid.
"Sire," be said, "I would rather
you would judge of that for yourself."
"JIo judge? And how am I to do
"Let Ruric Novel's skill be tried
here bofoie you. If 1 mistake not,
you havo some good swordsmen near
your palace. There is Demetrius, the
(J reek."
"What, my mnsler at arms?"
"Yes, sire."
"Why, he is the host swordsman
in my empire. I think our young
adventurer would fare badly in his
".Never mind, sire. Vou could
"Why," snid Peter, wiih a smile,
"Demetrius handles tho count as I
would a mere child."
"Sire," spoke Rurie modestly, but
yet frankly, "it were surely no disgrace to be overcome by your tutor."
"And will you take a turn with
him at the swords?"
"Yes, sire, if so it please you."
"By my soul," cried the emperor,
leaping up, "we'll have some diversion out of this trial. What ho,
iherol Light up the chamber. Let
every lamp be lighted, for we want
sight now. Send Demetrius hero
and loll him to bring his round edged
swords I"
Both the duko and Urzen stood
aghast nt Ibis now turn, but thoy
dared not interfere, for thoy saw
lhat thoir imperial master was all
excitement now lo seo n (rial of skill
at that science whieh, above all others, he tried to make liis officers
learn. But then they bad ono hope
—Demetrius might overcome the
gunmaker so easily lhat Peter
should nnt see his real power,
Demetrius soon came, and under
his arm he carried lhe sword-. They
wcro of Iho common size, but with
round edges and points on purpose
for play. The master at arms was a
powerfully built man and possessed
a splendid form. He was a Greek
by birth and was now retained by
lhe emperor as a teacher of the
sword exercise.
"Demetrius," said Peler, "I havo
sen! fnr you lo entertain us wiih a
show of your skill. Here is a man
about whose power Ihero is somo
dispute. .Mind you, it is all in kindness. Rurie Novel, take your weapon."
The youth stepped forward and
extended his left hand for the
sword, and lhe right band be extended for tbo other In grasp. It
was laken warmly, for the Greek
saw in an instant tbat be bad a noble man to deal with. And those
two mon ware not much unlike in
form. Demetrius was an atom tho
taller, but Rurio showed the moro
The night had come on, but the
great lamps were all lighted, nnd the
room was as bright as day.
"Sir," said Rurie, addressing the
Greek, "this is none of my seeking,
though I confess that for a long
while I have longed to cross a playful sword with you.   I play well."
"I like yon, tho Greek returned
bluntly and kindly, "and if you beat
me I will not like you less. I can uf-
ford to bo beat once, seeing that
thus far 1 have nover been since lirst
I offered to fence."
"Come, come," cried Peter, who
was impatient for the entertainment, "let's see lhe Opening. Now,
stand aside, gentlemen."
Like twins stood those swordsmen as their weapons crossed with a
clear, sharp clang. The Greek led
nil carefully, and Ruric as carefully
warded every stroke. Then the former assumed a guard, and Ruric led
oil' in turn. Ere long the swords
clashed with sharper ring, and soon
sparks of lire flew out from Iho
clanging steel. Louder and louder
grew the clang, and quicker and
quicker grew the slmi.es. The
thrusts wero mnde with skill and
forco, but as yet neither had been
Tbe emperor was in ecstasy. lie
clapped his bands and shouted bravo
wiih all his might.
By and by Ruric's eye grow more
intense in its sparkling lire. His opponent saw it, but he could not tell
what it meant. The youth was about
to risk tho most daring feat of all ho
know.   Steadily burned his eye, and
his lips were set iikc steel. At length
he saw that tho Greek was playing
for a tnrust, and he lowered his
point. Demetrius saw the chance,
and. drawing his arm quickly hack,
he made the thrust with all his power. He was sure now ho had won,
for there was no earthly way in
which bis point could be struck either down or up. But see! With a
gliding motion, a motion almost imperceptible, Ruric raises bis sword,
and ibe otber slides along upon its
side, and (be other point, instead of
touching his breast, is caught in the
cross guard of his haft. Then, quick
as ligblning and with all his might,
Rurie bends his elbow downward
v.ilh Ihe whole weight of his massive shoulder and throws his wrist
upward. On llmi instant the Greek
sees and feels what meant that
strange fire of the eye. Ho feels his
point caught, but before he can close
liis grasp more firmly the haft is
wrenched from his hand. It strikes
the vaulted ceiling with a dull clang
and, descending, is caught fairly on
the hilt by Ruric Nevel.
for a moment all is still as death
in that chamber. Ruric is tho first
to break tho silence. Ho advances
to the Greek, and ns he hands back
both the swords he says:
"Demetrius, remember your
promise. 1 know you are a brave
man, for I can sec it in your forgiving glance. Y'ou will not like me tho
loss for this."
"By heaven, no!" the noble Greek
cries, dropping both tho swords und
extending both hands, which tbe
gunmaker grasped. "I honor you, I
love you."
Petor Aloxiowitz, tho impetuous
emperor, then in the zeal and fire of
youth, leaped from his standing
place and caught Rurie by the hand.
"By St. Michael," he cried earnestly nnd loudly, "you stand clear
of all blame, for full well do 1 know
that had you so desired you could
have slain Conrad Damonoll' nt your
lirst thrust."
"Sire," returned tho youth, now
speaking tremulously, "twice did I
disarm tho count and yet spare him.
And when in my rage I broke his
weapon in twain to bring him to his
Benses ho seized a second sword."
"Sir duko, spoko the emperor,
turning toward Olga, who stood
trembling with rage and mortification, "you seo you must havo labored
under a mistake. Y'ou can retire
now.   Not a word, sir!"
With a quivering lip nnd a trembling step tho duke left tho apartment, and after him went Stephen
"JNOW, mine Aevei, n you leave
Moscow without my consent you do
so at ynur peril. I would not lose
sight of you.   Y'ou nre at liberty."
In an hour more liuric was upon
his mother's bosom. lie told her all
that had happened, all hut the lust
words of the emperor. He did not
tell her of those, for ho know not
whether tbey boded him good or

It was about two weeks after the
events Inst recorded tbat liosalind
Valdai sat in her own apartment
with Zenobie for her companion. It
was in the afternoon, nnd a severe
6torm was raging without.
"Now, Zenobie," spoke tho beautiful maiden, "wo have a moment
alone, the first since morning. And
now tell mo about that black monk.
What did he say his name was ?"
"Ah, yes. I havo heard his name,
and if 1 mistake not ho is a sort of
mysterious being."
"He Ls, my mistress, and I am just
as confident that 1 hnve seen him beforo as I am that I have seen you before."
"How?   Seen him before?"
"But whore?"
"Ah," returned tho young girl,
with a dubious shako of the head,
"there is the mystery. For tho life
of me I cannot (ell. Ho know me—
he knows everybody—and yet ho has
not boen long in the city if one
might judge from his conversation."
"But what did ho stop you for?
Where was it?" asked liosalind eagerly.
"It was in the church he stopped
mo—in our Church of St. Stephen.
He was at the altar, and he beckoned to me ns I rose to come out. I
went to him, and he asked about
"About mo?"
"Yes, and about liuric Nevel."
"And what about us?" tho maiden asked, blushing.
"He asked mo if I thought you
loved the young gunmaker. Ho was
so kind and bo appeared so anxious
to know and then he seemed to take
such an interest in Rurie that I
could not refuse to answer him."
"But what did you tell him?"
"1 (old him you did love liurie. I
told him how you had been children
together and how you would now
give your hand to him sooner than
to the proudest noble in tho land.
He asked me somo things nbout tho
duke, but 1 would nnt tell him.
When I must tell of evil if I tell tho
truth, I will not speak if I can properly avoid it."
"You were right, Zenobie. You
wcro very right about this last part,
but you should not hnvo told ull you
knew concerning Ruric nnd me."
"I hope I did nothing wrong. Oh,
I should bo proud to acknowledge
my lovo for such a man."
"Aye, nnd so I am, my little
sprite. I love liuric with my wholo
soul and would be proud to give him
my hnnd this day, but that is no reason why you should tell of it."
"Surely, my mistress, I meant no
harm," tho young girl cried eagerly.
"Hush, Zenobie. I do not blame
you; only I would havo you careful"
"And I would be careful. But, oh,
you could not have resisted him. He
drew it from me almost ere I knew
it. He put his questions in such a
strange manner that I could not
speak without telling what he wanted to know. He did not say, TJoes
sbe love Ruric Novel ?' but ho took it
for granted that such was the case,
and then ere I was aware of it he
had mado me say so. But he surely
does not mean you harm, nor does
ho mean harm to Huric. He is a
j good man, I know."
"I wish I could see him," returned
| Rosalind half to herself.
"You cannot mistake him if you
ever do see him, my mistress. He is
a strange looking man, and, then,
he dresses differently from most of
our church officers. He drosses all
in black—today it was in black velvet. But his shape is his most striking characteristic. Ho is the fattest man in Moscow. His belly
shakes when he laughs, and his chin
seems to sink clear out of sight. lie
would be a funny man and would
make mo laugh if ho did not puzzle
mo so."
"And did he ask you about anything else?"
"No; only he asked me if I knew
how the duke stood with tho emperor, and I told him I thought he
stood very well. Then ho said ho
had heard that they had had some
dispute concerning tho duel between
Count Damonoff and liuric. But
I told him I guessed that had resulted in no estrangement, for the duko
was ns much nt court ns ever. And
nfter that ho told me about tho duel,
as he was there nnd saw nearly the
whole of the affair."
And Zenobie went on and told all
that the monk related about Ruric's
bravery, nnd Rosalind listened now
attentively and eagerly. It was a
(heme that pleased her. Tho attendant saw how gratefully the account camo upon tho cars of her
mistress, ana she closed tlie reeitai
with some opinion of her own
wherein Ruric Nevel was beld up as
n pattern after which all men who
wished to win the lovo of woman
sliould he made.
But beforo any answer could be
made by Rosalind the door of the
apartment was opened, and the duko
entered. He smiled very kindly as
he bowed to bis ward, and then,
with a wave of his hand, he motioned for Zenobie to withdraw, and after the attendant was gone lie took a
seat close by bis fair charge. The
maiden looked up inlo bis face, and,
though there was no serious look
there as yet, still she could plainly
see (hat he had something of more
than usual importance on his mind.
Sho shuddered as she gazed upon
him, for sho could not help it.
There was soine'lhing in lhe look of
tho man—a sort of hidden intent,
which came out in his tone nnd
glance; a deep meaning, something
which be had never spoken, but
which was yet manifest—that moved her (hus. What it was she could
not tell. It was the prompting of

snid in a tone whieh he meant
should havo been easy and frank,
but which nevertheless was marked
strongly with effort, "there is some
talk among the surgeons now that
Conrad Damonoff may recover."
"Oh, 1 am glad of that I" the fair
girl uttered earnestly.
"Yes, I suppose so," resumed Olga, eying her sharply. "But you
havo no particular care for him, 1
"For—for tho count ?"
"Aye; it was of him I was speaking."
"No, sir. I care only for him as I
care for nil who need to become better ere they die."
"Aha, yes!" said (lie duke, biting
liis lip, for in his own mind ho had
the frankness to acknowledge that
lie was nbout ns needy of virtue ns

with a faint smile, "you never loved
the man ?"
"Xo, sir," the maiden answered,
gazing up into her guardian's face,
with an inquisitive look.
"So 1 thought, so I thought." As
Olga thus spoke ho smiled again and
moved his chair nearer to liosalind.
"1 am well aware," ho resumed,
"tbnt your affections havo not as
yet been set upon any ono who is
capable of making a proper companion for you through all tho tips

Rosalind's eyes drooped beneath
the steady gaze of tho speaker, and
her frame trembled. Bul ere she

Everyone is familiar with the
history oi' the wonderful development
of lhe export l>acon trade in Canada
during tlie past ten or twelve years.
In 181'U our export of bacon, lard,
hams, pork, SlC, amounted to less
Hi.in 8,000,000 lbs.; in 1900 it had
risen to about 1--1C,UOO,000 lbs. The
Province of Ontario has been tlie
chief exporter, but the time has
come When we may expect to see a
change in this respect. Mueh of
Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia
and Prince Edward island is admirably adapted to dairying, a branch
of farming which is rapidly extending from Montreal eastward, ns well
jas in Ontario. The dairy districts
j produce the class of hog, from which
I the finest Wiltshire bacon is made,
and in these districts hogs are put
on the market at as low a cost per
pound as in any section of Canada.
General dairying und hog growing
should go together, as neither wijl
reach its highest paying condition
without the other. The Eastern and
Northern sections of Ontario produce a better class of hog than the
corn belt of Western Ontario, or in
other words, the section of Ontario
which more nearly resembles Quebec!
und the Maritime Provinces iu clini-
ato and grail) products, produces the
best, class of bacon. In some respects these provinces are better
suited than Ontario for the development of this industry. Land is generally cheaper, pasturage surer, ami
roots aud other crops easily raised.
Two conditions are necessary in order to develop this industry in Quebec and the Eastern Pro\inces, c.■-
pecially tlie latter,—an abundance of
Coarse grains, which by attention to
agriculture run be profitably produced, nnd the establishment of packing
companies, (or the extension of
those already established), which
will fully meet the requirements of
the best markets, both at home and
I Miring the past year or two, I
have had frequent requests from
other provhires for information regarding the establishment of co-operative packing factories, such as
have recently been put up nt several
points in Ontario, 'ihe practical results of these co-operative movements hns been demonstrated by the
Danish farmers, who are becoming
more and more interested in improving the quality and shape of the pig,
as through this medium alone they
have succeeded in placing their bacon
and pork in a foremost position,
both for quality and shaplincss of
side, on the London market, while
the fact of these co-operative factories being established all over Dcn-
i mark, shows lo what a success they
have   been  brought.
Thero are several pointb however
that should always be observed, in
connection with the establishment of
these pork packing industries on tho
eo-opevative plan. In tho lirst place,
they sliould be installed as nearly as
possible along the Danish lines, with
only farmers as stockholders, and
each one allowed to hold only a limited amount of stock. No speculators should be permitted to invest in
lhe company. in thu next place, it.
is absolutely necessary that tho individual subscriber shall have faith
iu his own company. The practice of
farmers subscribing stock in theso
movements and then selling their-
hogs lo the highest bidder, often to
linns competing against their own
company, is all wrong, and entirely
different from the "modus operandi"
iu Denmark. The success of Canadian co-operuUve factories is absolutely regulated and con I rolled by
the loyalty of the farmer, who has,
as yet, scarcely realized Die importance of operat in% along truly co-
opuratlve lines. Still another necessary feature is that all proxies
should be concentrated in tho hands
of a co'incil of not more than seven,
preferably live of the very best men
among them, practical business men,
who a e not likely to be led away by
fads, t.r driven from wise business
principles by factious opposition.
It is of the lirst importance that
behind tho business management of
l he concern 1 here shall bo a
thoroughly practical and experienced
curer, vho will send forward only
uniform goods of the highest quality,
that will when tested on ihe British
market, grade with the best Irish
and Danish bacon. To turn out this
class of goods particular attention
must bo given to the sort of pig
grown, and the method of feeding the
same. To produce the highest grade
of WUUhire sides, the packers require a long, deep, smooth pig, possessing a light head and shoulder,
und 8V((i back, not too broad, but
well covered with firm flesh, not fat;
at the «unic time he must not be a
razor buck. The sides from ham to
buck o( shoulder must be long and
deep, Uie underline straight anil free
from flabbtness; the ham smooth und
taper lug,   with    the greatest amount
oi' llesu on the OUtslde. The pig
should be healthy, vigorous and a
good feeder, weighing when ready for
marl el from I T.~> to 200 lbs. It is
generally conceded that Yorkshires
produce the greatest proportion of
pigs of this typo, with the Tarn-
worths next, 'lhe thick, fat, American or lard breeds ure not wanted by
puckers.      Pigs     Should   be   fed     good
wholesomo and .. . Iiy selccle!
food,—skimmed milk, pukUtocH, roots,
green   food,   barley,   peas   -&C,     in     a
properly balanced ral ion, without
uny undue stufling. If the farmers
do not Intend to observe these conditions, they had better leave the
business entirely alone, as otherwise
they are only retarding the efforts of
other Canadians who are striving to
place our bacon on the market In
th<' highest possible condition in
competition with the Irish und Danish products. A good deal of money
1ms been lost during the past year on
hogs, the English market not justifying prices i»aid in Canada. For iu-
gUnices, wo have had pigs fnr a whole
year ranging in price from SO.fiO to
97.50. Such u condition of ulTuirs
wus never beforo known in the trade.
The farmers huve, however, n c-lvcd
the benefit, und the packing companies have suffered, largely because
they have been climbing over one another to get pigs irrespecl Ive of
cost, doing no culling, and taking unties icable breeds, just us quickly as
they would the best. This sort of
thing will right itseif in course of
time,  but    not     before    the puck ing
houses  lose a lot  of  money.
A co-operative pack inn ia; tory
should not be started until a capital
of at least J2o0,000 bus be n subscribed, which will be sii;... ient to
ensure a killing capacity oi two to
threo thousand ptr week. Small
plants are objectionable because the
refrigerating s> stent costs very little
ltss, and the management and expenses are the same, minimum production always being the most expensive. Such a factory cannot be
put up for less thau $100,000 to
$125,000. Farmers holding stock in
s th a company should d liver thtir
hogs ut the factory, take an advance
of sixty or eighty per cent., havo
them slaughtered, cured, branded
with the name of the factory, sent1
forward und realized on thro' gh the

Eastern Canada has for some time
shown a good deal oi interest in the
subject id' co-operative packing
houses, but so fur ns 1 am aware,
Manitoba, tho Northwest Territories
and British Columbia have nol given
it much consideration. Possibly the
informal ion above given may prove
of value to the people of the West as
well as lhe East. Any community
interested in the co-operative system
outlined above should send u representative committee to visit und
carefully inspect the operations of a

Fnr out nt sen gleaming sheets of
dazzling gold arrested the gaze of the
early explorers of California. Blazing
along the Pacific const, embroidering
the green foothills of the snow capped
Sierra Madreg, transforming acres and
acres of treeless plains into royal cloth
of gold, millions of flowers of silky texture nnd eolor of gold fascinated the
Spanish discoverers. An eminent botanist, Eschseholtz, at once classified
the plant, and his followers conferred
his name upon this the ouly native
Americau papaver.
Dreamlike in beauty, fascinating from
sheer loveliness, spreading In soft undulations over the land, the California
poppy bloomed above the richest views
nud arteries of gold the world has ever
known, all unsuspected. A Circe, with
powers lo please, dazzle nnd charm by
its enchantments, while it allures, lulls
nnd mystifies, this flower of sleep seemed to draw by some occult process from
the enrth tho elixir of gold, unfolding
its blooms of gold as beueons proclaiming, "We nre blooming above rich mines
of gold."
There Is ever n mystery about tho
poppy. It Is n weird flower. It ls almost sentient, with n life unknown to
human kind. "While glory guards with
solemn trend the bivouac of the dead"
stealthily a sea of gore creeps over the
old battlefields. Blood red, the popples
lu waves and billows hold high carnival nbove the soil that covers the slain.
Lord Ma can lay snys of the battlefield
of Neerwlnden: "The summer nfter the
battle the soil, fertilized by 20,000de-id,
broke forth into millions of blood red
poppies. The traveler from St. Troud
to Tirlemont who saw that vast field
of rich scarlet stretching from I-ap^en
to Neerwlnden could hardly help fancying tlmt the figurative deseript'on of
tlie Hebrew prophet was literally accomplished; that "the earth was disclosing her blood aud refusing to cover
her slain." Haynrd Taylor In "The
I,amis of the Sarncen" snys he contem-
plnted with feelings he could not do-
scribe "tho old battlefields of Syria,
densely covered with blood red popples, blooming in barbaric splendor,
gloating on the gore of soldiers plcln."
However Interesting the poppy may
be to men of science and tn lovers of
the beautiful, it ls yet more so to tb*
people of California. This beautiful,
weird, gold colored flower of gossamer
texture belongs to California alone.
Nowhere else in the world has It ever
made Its habitat There it is nnturally
so profuse that it ls related as a fact
that, coming on a turn full face upon
n blooming field of yellow poppies, dazzling in tiie sunshine, horses have been
put to flight us from llames of fire.
Hlght It reed of Uena
Prof. A. i; Gilbert, manager of the
poultry department of the Central
Kxpei imental farm, recently addressed the Agricultural Committee
on tho work of ids deptirtim ni. He
urged the necessity to farmers of
procuring ihe breeds of thickens
which will produce good winter layers uud rapid flesh formers. Those
were the Barred Plymouth Rock, tho
While Wyandotte and Uuff Orpingtons, lie also emphasized the necessity   of   taking   care   of   the   thickens
properly, particularly during the
lirst live weeks of theinexistetice, and
until they reach the salable age of
three or three and a half months. If
the market required it. ul the ago of
11iree mouths the chickens could be
put into crates and fed on a tut ion
of finely ground outs uud skiiuniilk.
He advised farmers to raise the proper quality of chickens, In largo numbers, so us to meet the great demand of both the home and foreign
markets. Mr. Could, M.P., West
Ontario, doubled the wisdom oi tiie
chicken fattening stations, ns tho
English market did not call for very
fat birds.

Most farmers find their stock Increasing in number nt this season
wiih the coining of caUos, lambs,
pigs and chick*, ns. If pains hive
been taken to breed from good stock,
each one should mean additional income to the farmer or more value to
his personal property. They should,
therefore, bo welcomed on arrival,
properly cared for und hospitably
treated. Do not neglect to meet
them until they have shivered with
th'J cold n few hours or grown hungry, nnd do not fail to supply good
food in proper amounts at regular intervals. That is tlie way welcome
visitors should be received in this
country.—American Cultivator.

Foods nnd   Appetite.
In some good advice given In print by

in special foods, warranted to perform
marvels of health nud restoration. Is
exploded, "Don't," snys this writer,
"imagine that you can grow strong on
foods thnt you dislike. Hotter fried

appetite than a health cereal with milk

One would hesitate, perhaps, to follow strictly the fried hum and choco

undoubtedly true lhat at the moment
many persons almost starve themselves
because (hey have uo appetite for the
various so called health foods, which
alone they fancy they can cat. Above

The  Eait nnd  the  \Vc«t.
A man from the west who was recently visiting Malue fell into conversation with a quiet old farmer on a
train. He was full of the greatness of
the west and talked about the big
farms and big crops of his particular
section and wound up by saying, "I
suppose you do manage to pick up a
living on these little Maine farms."
The old Maine farmer smiled sadly
and replied: "Yes, and n few years ago
some of us invested money In your section, and It Is there yet. It was a permanent Investment, I guess."
Tbe western man changed the conversation.

Frog farming as nn industry is as-
suming larye. proportions in many
parts of Cunada. Not only are large
shipments of frogs' legs made from
this country to the United States,
but i here i.s a growing demand for
the luxury in mnny of the largo
centres of the Dominion-
Some of the most successful frog
farms are on ihe Otonabeo River, in
the County of Pelerboro, Last year
they are s.iid to have produced 5.-
000 pounds oi dressed frogs' legs
aud 7,000 living frogs for si h ntilic
purposes and for slocking other waters.
The Deputy Commissioner of Fisheries reports thnt in the past year
n number of applications were made
to the Government ior leases oi
lands suitable for this industry. No
licenses were, however, granted, ns
it was found th.it the territory concerned was already being farmed by
a number of people.
It is safe lo a.ssitme that in the
very near future much land now idle
will be slocked with frogs. All that
is necessary for this purpose is lo
place a few paired breeders in the
water. Natural food is almost always present, in sufficient amount for
suecesslul growth.
'1 he species considered there to be
Atable.  on account of
size, is ihe Eastern bullfrog, Rana
catesbiana, which reaches a length of
more than eight inches. It logins to
breed hI the end of three years, is
very productive, and reaches a marketable size in four or five years.
Ouly the-hind legs are marketed,
uud they average half u pound a
pair in Weight. They are worth 50
cents u pound, at times, to the producer ah" American dealers take as

From  the Sun, Seaforth,  Ont.
Mrs. Wm. Westcott is well known
to nearly all the residents of Seaforth, It is nlso well Known to her
neighbors and friends that sin- passed through a trying illness, but is
now, happily, in robust health. To
the editor ot the Sun, Mrs. Westcott
recently gave the particulars of her
caso for publication, merely in the
hope that her experience might be of
some benefit to some other suffer or.
She said ; ".For .sonic time past my
health was in a bad state my whole
system being boldly run down. I was
troubled with headache, much dizziness, my appetite was poor and J
could not stand the lenst exertion. I
consulted different physicians,, but
their treatment did not seem to benefit me, and I gradually became so
bad that I was unable to attend to
my household duties. 1 then tried
several advcrl Ised medicines, but
without any beneficial results, and I
begun to despair of getting hotter.
One of my neighbors strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' I'ink
Fills, ami somewhat reluctantly 1
consented to do so. After i had
taken the second box I began lo note
a great improvement In my condition, and by the time 1 had used five
boxes I was fully restored to my
former good health, much to the surprise of my neighbors and relations.
I do not suffer the least now from
those headaches nnd dizzy spells; my
appetite is good and I can attend to
my household duties with tlie greatest ease. In fact, 1 feel like a differ-
out woman, and all this 1 can say is
due to the use of Dr. Williams' I'ink
Fills. All who suffer from a rundown constitution should give these
pills a trial."
When the vitality is low; when the
blood needs to bo replenished, enriched and purified ; when the nerves
are weak and require strengthening,
there is no other medicine can take
Uie place of Dr. Williams' Fink Fills.
It is because of their direct specific
action on tho blood and nerves that
these pills cure such troubles as

rreaarvlDK Local History.
Local historical societies throughout Ontario are doing a valuable
work in saving nnd perpetuating
many interesting and pathetic stories of the early settlement of the
Province, snys The Toronto Globe.
As primitive conditions pass away
tbe experience of tho pioneer is soon
forgotten, and those who take an
intelligent interest in the preservation of local history ure strengthening the sentiment from which true
patriotism springs. At the last
meeting of tho Ladies' Historical Society of St, Thomas a paper was
read by Mrs. (Dr.) Wilson, giving
nn account of the founding of the
first church in the "Talbot Settlement," and of the leading events
associated with it in pioneer days.
Tho Talbot Settlement has grown
into the City of St. Thomas, and
the name of the original founder,
Hon. Thomas Talbot, has thus been
The. Evening Journal gives a brief
synopsis of the paper, which will be
preserved, with other contributions,
in the museum of the society, whore
they will form the nucleus of a historical reference library. Tbe founder of the settlement was born in Mat-
abide County, Ireland, in 1771, and
died In London, Ont., in 1868, having settled on the present site of St.
Thomas in 180/1. The story of the
hullding of tlie first church, and of
the subsequent stages shown in its
construction, of the first service in
1H22, the first communion celebrated, the first wedding nnd tho first
con hi* ma tion, is entertainingly told,
and the narrative strengthens the
bond of human sympathy uniting the
present with the past.
A Story *t Hon. ,1a* Martio,
In a private lettor received in Toronto a latly in Vancouver related an incident which shows that
Hon. Joe Martin is still on the
boards. Tire story is that when
tbe Duke of York wns in Vancouver
Mr. Mart in entered the leading club
of that city and addressed a group
of the members who were discussing
the royal visit.
"I suppose you will admit," said
Mr. Martin, "that the Duke of York
is a well-bred Englishman?"
His auditors were probably too
shocked hy the question to admit or
deny  anything.
"Well," he continued, "I hnve just
henrrl the Duke speak, and 1 notice
that ho doesn't talk English the way
you fellows talk English, I don't
understand it at all."
which suggests that in Vancouver
as in Toronto tbe Duke's English
has given tho prevailing fashionable
accent a bad jolt.
