GREAT   MINERAL  STRIKE.
We have heard of the streets of various places being psved with gold but as
a matter of fact we never heard of a
town's streets being paved with silver
except Main Street, Marysville. On
the 17th, Al. Jones struck a lead actually on the Main Street of our town within a hundred yards of the business
center. Tbe lead be followed for some
distance and dug a few prospecting
pits which revealed a lead of line
galena ore and the foot wall. Up to
the present the hanging wall has not
been found. The galena ore Is associated with carbonates and seems to be of
much the same quality as the general
rnn of tbe ore fonnd at the North Star
and Sullivan mines.
Extensions on this claim have been
staked by W. Martin and A I, Borden.
On the latlers claim there Is a fine
showing native sliver.
It seems that Marysville will not
only be a smelter town but also the
center of a great mining district with
mines on Its very Main Street.
There is no doubt that gold, silver,
copper and lead exist lu vast quantities
in the Immediate vicinity and that
"Marvelous Marysville" will retain her
name for many long years to come.
An Important Event.
No event happens within the calendar
year that auraches more announcement
Importance to the hearts of the "little
folk" than does the Gentry Bro*.
Famous Shows which are soon to exhibit at Cranbrook. Hardly a child
lives ln tbe length and breadth of this
broad land who has not heard of Gentry
Bros, and their famous animal actors
and the simple announcement of an ex
hlbltlon day In Cranbrook plays havoc
with the plc-nlc schedules and other
things which are Intended to delight
the hearts of the little ones. For almost a score of years, Gentry Bros.
Famous Shows have been successful In
amusing both young and old, and this
season by combining their exhibitions a
programme exactly twice as long and
meritorious as before is presented.
The combined street parade will be
given upon the morning of the day of
exhibition, which bas been definitely
announced to be at Cranbrook, Monday
June both.

© :;•#* #*©-x •*e*0*a***»*« .-^--a*e--;-S
There wns a rich ami powerful king
who haU a daughter remarkable for ber
beauty. When thia princess arrived at
an age to he married, be caused a proclamation to be made by sound of a trumpet and by placards on all the walls of
hla kingdom to thu effect tbat all those
who had any pretension to her hand
were t»i assemble iii u widespread meadow.
Her would he suitors being in this way
gathered together, tbe princess would
throw into the air n golden apple, ond
whoever succeeded in catehfiig it would
then have to resolve three problems, nfter doing which he might marry tho
princess nud. the kiiig having no son. Inherit tin' kingdom.
On the duy appointed tho meeting took
place. The princess threw the goldi u apple Into the air, ond it fell Into the hands
of a young shepherd, who was tbe linn I-
Boincst but ;it ..!<• some time the poorest
or nil thu competitors,
The lirst problem given him to solve,
certainly ns ilifllcull us a problem lu
mathi>mattes, was this:
The king ' ul caused 100 hnres to lie
shul up in ii stable. IN- who should succeed in leading them out to reed upon
tlie meadow whuj-e the meeting wns being held tbo next morning oud conduct
them nit buck to the stable the u -xt
evening would bnvo resolved the (Irst
problem.
Tho shepherd Immedlotely took his
way to the forest to meditate there oa
tho menus of accomplishing the task set
bim.
With down buut bead he slowly traversed a uarrow path running beside a
brook, when lie enmo upon :i little old
woman with snow white hair, but sparkling eyes, who Inquired tbo cause of his
badnoss.
The young shepherd's heart wns so
heavy that he needed oo entreaty to lell
her his story.
She took from her pocket 00 Ivory
whistle and gave it to him. This whlstlv
was just like otber whistles in appearance, so tlie shepherd, thinking thnt it
needed to be blown In a particular way,
turned to ask the little old woman how
this was, but she had disappeared. Full
of confidence, however, in what he regarded as a gooil genius, ho went next
day to the patyce and said to the klug:
"I accept, -sir, nnd have come in search
of the hares to load them to the meadow."
On hearing this tho kin. rose and sold
to bis minister of the interior:
"Have ull the bares turned ont of the
stnble."
The young mnn placed himself on tho
threshold of the door to count them, but
the lirst was already far away when the
last was set ot liberty, so much so that
When he reached the meadow he hnd uot
a single bare with bim.
lie snt himself down pensively, rot
daring to believe in the virtue of his
whistle. However, bo had no oilier resource, nnd, placing the whistle to bis
lips, be blew into it with nil his might.
Immediately, to bis great astonishment, from right nnd left, from before
bim and behind him, from all sides, in
fact, leaped the hundred hares and set to
quietly browsing on the meadow nround
bim.
News was brought to the king how the
young shepherd had probably resolved
the problem of tbu hares. The king conferred on the matter with his daughter.
Both were greatly vexed, for if the young
shepherd succeeded with the two other
problems as well ns he bad with the first
the princess would become the wife of u
simple peasant, than which nothing could
be more humiliating to royal pride.
The princess retired to her chamber
nnd disguised herself in such a way as
to render herself unrocognlzublo. Then
sbe bad a horse brought for her, mounted it and went to the young shepherd,
Tho hundred hares were frisking joyously around him.
"Will you sell me one of your hares'*"
asked the young princess.
"I Would not sell you one of my hares
for all the gold iu tho world,'* replied the
shepherd, "but yon may gain one."
"At what price?" asked the princess.
"By dismounting from your horse and
Fitting by me on the grass for n quarter
of an hour."
Tho princess made some objuolioun,
but. as there was no other means of oh
tabling the hare, she descended to the
ground nud seated herself by the young
shepherd.
The hundred hares leaped and bounded
around him.
At the end of n quarter of an hour.
during which the young shepherd said a
hundred tender things to her, sin; rose
snd claimed her hare, which the ship
herd, faithful to his promise, gave her.
The princess joyfully shut it in a bas
hot which she carried at the bow of her
saddle and rode back toward the palace,
Hut hardly had she ridden a quarter ol'
a league when tho young shepherd
placed his whistle to his lips ond blew
into it, und ut his imperative call the
hare forced up the lid of the basket.
sprang to the ground nnd made off as
fust as his leg* would carry him.
A moment afterward the shepherd e&w
a peasant coming toward him mounted
on n donkey. It wns the old king, also
disguised, who had quitted tbe palace
with tbe same intention us his daughter
A large bag hung from the donkey's
saddle.
"Will you sell mo one of your haresV"
he asked of the young shepherd,
".My Lares are not for sale," replied
the shepherd, "but they may be gained."
"What must one do to gain one?"
The shepherd considered for n moment.
"Vou must kiss three times the tail uf
your donkey," he said.
This strange condition wns greatly repugnant to tho old king, who tried his
hardest to escape it, going so far as to
offer 50,000 francs for a single hare, but
tin- young shepherd would not budge
from the tonus he had named. At Insl
the kllitf, who held absolutely to getting
possession or one of the hnres. submitted to \he conditions, Humiliating as they
were foi' a king. Three times he kissed
the tail of his donkey, who was greatly
surprised at a king doing him so mink
honor, and tho shepherd, faithful io his
promise, gave him the hare demanded
with so much Insistence.
The king tucked his hnre Into his ling
anil rode nwny at thu utmost speed of his
donkey. I
But he had hardly gone n quarter of n
league when a shrill whistle Bounded in
tbe uir. on hearing Which the hare nibbled at tlie bag so vigorously ns speedily
to make a hole, out of which it leaped to
the ground and tied.
"Well?" Inquired the princess on see-
lug the king return to the palace.
"I hardly know whut to tell you, my
daughter," replied tbe king. "This voting
shepherd is an obstinate fellow, woo refused to sell me one of bis hares at any
price. But don't distress yourself. He'll
not get so easily through the two other
tusks as he has done with Ibis one."
It ueed hardly be snid that tho king
made no allusion to tin- condition under
which he had for u moment had possession of oue of his hares or thnt the
princess said nothing about the terms of
her similar unsuccess.
"That is exactly my case," sho remarked. 'T coot I not induce him to part with
one of his hares cither for gold or silver."
When evening came, the shepherd returned with his hares, lie counted tbem
before the king. There was not one
more or one le.ss. They were given back
to the minister of the interior, who bad
them driven into the stable.
Thon-'the king snid:
"The first problem has been solved.
The second now remains to be accomplished. I'uy great attention, young
num."
The shepherd listened with nil his ears.
"Up yonder iu my granary," the king
went on, "there aro 100 measures of
gray peas and 100 measures of lentils,
Lentils and pens are mixed together. If
you succeed tonight and without light iu
separating them, you will havo solved
the second problem."
"I'll do my host." replied the young
shepherd.
And the king called Ids minister of the
Interior, who conducted the young man
Up  to   the  granary,   locked  him  in  oud
j  handed tlte key to the king.
As it was already night nnd as for
such a labor there was no time to be lost,
lhe shepherd put his whistle to his lips
nnd blew a long, shrill note.
Instantly ,*>,o*>o ants appeared and set
to work separating the lentils from the
pens and never stopped until the whole
was divided into two heaps.
Tin* nest morning the king, to his greal
astonishment, beheld the work uocom
plished. He tried to raise objections,
hut was unable to lind any ground what
ever.
All lie could now do was to trust t-;
tin- third trial, which, after lhe shepherd's success i:i the other two trinls, he
found to bo not very hopeful. However,
as the third was the most difficult of all,
he diil not give way to despair.
"What now remains for you to do," he
said, "is to go iuto the bread room ami
in a single Dlgbt eat the whole week's
bread, which is stored there. If tomorrow morning not a single crumb is to ho
found there, 1 will consent to your mar-
rylng my daughter,"
That same evening the young shepherd
was conducted tu tho bread room of the
palace, which was so full of brend that
only a very small space near the door
remained unoccupied.
But tit midnight, when nil was quiet iu
the palace, the shepherd sounded Ids
whistle. In a moment 10,000 mice fell to
gnawing at the bread in such n fashion
thnt the next morning not a single crumb
remained in the place.
The young man then hammered at the
door with all his might und called out:
"Mako hasto nnd open tho door, plen.se,
for I'm hungry!''
The third task wns thus victoriously
accomplished, ns the others hail boen.
Nevertheless, the king tried hard to get
out of his engagement
lie hud a sack big enough to hold six
measures of wheat brought nnd, having
called a go^d number of bis courtiers
about him, Bald: "Tell us ns many falsehoods as will fill this sack, and when it
is full you shall have my daughter."
Then the shepherd repented nil the
falsehoods lie could think of, but tho tiny
was half .spent, und be was nt the end of
his libs and still tho sack wns far from
being full.
"Well," he went on, "while I was
guarding my hnres tho princess enme to
mu disguised as a peasant nnd, to get
one of my hnres, permitted mo to kiss
her."
The princess, who, not in the lenst suspecting whnt be wns going to say, had
uot been able to close bis mouth, became red as a cherry, so much so that
the king began to think that the young
shepherd's tarradlddle might possibly be
true.
"The snek Is not yet full, though you
have just dropped a very big falsehood
into it!" cried the king,  "do on."

$ A Story of Blackmail
• and Its Results.
S»*»»*>»**»0»
The village clock was striking tho
hour of 5 one afternoon as Annie Graham stepped out of her trim nnd com-
fortahle cottage to meet her husband
at the gate.
She made a pleasant picture for the
eye to rest upon. Her year of married
life had hcen a very happy one, and
never did maiden look more eagerly
for her lover than did she for her bus-
bund's return from the distant city,
whither bo had gone a week ago on
business for his employers.
Among the few ornaments she wore
was a beautifully chased gold bracelet
which encircled her left wrist. As her
eye caught Its gleam a peaceful smile
lit up her sweet face, for It was her
husband's gift to her on Iter lost birthday.
She stood nt the gate nnd looked
down the road In tbe direction of the
small mining village through which
her husband must pass on his way
from tlie station, A man's form came
Into view on the quiet rood, but n single glance sulliced to show her thut it
was not the familiar figure she looked
for. Sbe scarcely observed the mnn
further, her eyes traveling beyond blm
to scan tho road, till he bulled almost
at her side.
"Can't you spare a copper for a poor
fellow who has walked all the way
from"— he began, with the usual plea
ami whine of tlio professional tramp,
but Btoppcd abruptly and gave vent to
a low whistle.
"So it's you!' he exclaimed sneering*
ly, recovering from liis surprise.
"Aren't you glad to see an old pal *r"
She looked nt him for a moment,
then drew back In fear.
"1 suppose you've got too high and
mighty for the likes of me," he continued, observing her notion. "I heard
you bad got spliced to the gnfter of a
mine somewhere nbout tbis quarter,
but had uo idea of such a slice of luck
as this happy meeting with you. So
thia is where you hang out, eh? It
does look rather comfortable Inside."
Ho drew nearer tbo gale and made
as if to enter.
"No, no, you cannot como In," she
cried lu alarm. "See, bere Is some
money.   Take It and go away,"
He examined the contents of the
purse which she handed to him. They
amounted to only half a dollar, and he
was dissatisfied,
"I'm as dry as a dusty road ln June,
and this will hardly wet my throat.
Let's see that bauble on your wrist. It
should be worth something," he snid,
looking greedily at the bracelet.
"No, Indeed, I will not 1 havo already given you more than enough, so
please go."
"Not if I know a thing or two," he
said, with a cunning leer. "Did you
tell your adorable husband that you
got tho swop from Watson's for nabbing a trinket like that? No, 1 guess
not."
"You know how false that charge
wns," site cried indignantly, but with
fear in her eyes nt the mention of her
husband.
"Oh, of course you say so, hut who
would believe you?" he returned.
"Hand over that bit of jewelry, aud
mum's the word."
"It's my husband's gift to mo," she
pleaded, "and I cannot part witli It. I
will give you its value lu money, but
do not ask this."
She turned to enter the house for the
money, but he WAS too quick for her.
"Not so fast, my pretty. 'A bird ill
the hand is worth two in the bush' tiny
day. I can make as good terms with
your husband, so It must be that gilt
thing or nothing."
She eagerly scanned the road again.
Yonder at last was the well known
stalwart llgure of her husband. Should
she tell him all aud trust to his believing in ber Innocence? What If he
should believe this man's story?
These thoughts passed quickly
through her mind. The risk of losing
his love and respect seemed too great
to face. She slipped the bracelet from
her wrist nnd banded lt to the man.
"There, take It. and go quickly," she
said, witb white, drawn face.
He snatched It from ber and walked
awa}', humming a lively air and looking tbe virtuous mnn he claimed to be
as be passed her husband a short distance from the gate.
John Graham greeted his young wife
affectionately, nnd together they entered thu house. Ho observed ber pallor
for the first time ns she turned up the
light of the dining room lamp.
"What's the matter, Annie?" he Inquired anxiously. "You look as If you
hnd got a fright. Have you been moping In my absence? I meant to he buck
a couple of days sooner, but 1 could
not get my business finished In time."
"lt Is nothing, John. 1 did wenry for
your coming, and I am glad to see you
home again," 6he said, with an effort
to keep the tremor out of her voice.
"1 have news for you, dear," he said
when they were seated nt the teuta-
ble. "I met some of my people In the
city nnd was Invited home. As they
nppeared to be holding out the olive
branch of pence of course 1 went, nnd
the upshot wns that matters were
smoothed over. They hnve most graciously condescended to forgive us for
marrying, nnd my mother and sisters
nre coming on tho 23tb to spend a few
days with us.
"See what I have brought you from
the city. 1 remembered that tbo 28th Is
your birthday and thought you would
like this. You might wear It wben
they come, along with the one I gave
you last year. I waut you to bo at
your best before my people."
Ah be sookn be drew a small parcel
from his pocket and unfolded It, re-
venling n bracelet of exquisite design
upon a bed of velvet. Ho bunded the
gift to her witli a tender smile.
"I am not worthy of this, John," she
sold faintly, while a mist roso before
her eyes. She was already paying
dearly for her error In her transaction
with the tramp.
"Nonsense, my dear. Bring out the
olher one and let mo aeo how they look
together.'1
"Not tonight, John. Please don't ask
me," she said so earnestly that he looked up In surprise.
"I'm afraid you are not yourself to*
I night, Annie. You do look rather ghostlike.     But   don't   trouble   about   the
i bracelets, as I can see tbem both ou
j the 2Sth."
I When the guests arrived, It struck
him that bis wife bad never appeared
' to greater disadvantage. Sbe looked
■ pale and anxious nud seemed to avoid
' meeting his eyes. He was annoyed to
Be*e tbe proud lips of bis mother and
sisters curl at bis wife's awkwardness,
and he felt that sbe had not done herself Justice.  Once be whispered:
"You are net wearing both bracelets
tonight?"
"No." she' answered in a low voice
nnd with averted eyes. Ho turned
nwny. with a look of disappointment.
When the visitors retired for tbe
night, be took both her hands In his.
"There Is somelbins wrong, Annie
Whnt Is lt?"
Could she tell bim, or must she go on
deceiving him and enduring tlie misery
of tlie pnst few days? He was a man
who was upright in nil bis notions and
bnted deceit in nny form. Y'et she
would ouly be doing him a further Injustice by concealing tlie truth, lu n
low voice she began and recounted the
whole story. Wheu site had finished,
be remained silent. Sho lifted her tear
stained face (o him.
"You do not believe me, nnd therefore you ennnot forgive me?" she asked wistfully.
"1 both believe and forgive you," he
said gently. "Hut what you hnvo told
tne is not quite new to me. I knew
about the charge against you when 1
asked you to marry tne, but I believed
In you. And within the last twenty-
four hours I have heard the rest of the
Btory.   Do you recognize this?"
She was astonished to see him hold
up the bracelet which sho bad parted
witli so unwillingly to the tramp.
"Your friend the trump got the worse
of drink witli tiie money you gave
him and was locked up nt the police
station," he resumed. "This wns found
In bis possession, and be could give no
proper account of It. Lieutenant Stirling happened to mention tlie matte!
to me. 1 had my own reasons for be-
ing interested, and, along with Stirling,
I interviewed the man. I knew him nt
once to be the man who was the Wat
sous' groom when you were wiih them.
We wormed the matter out of him, and
now it appears Hint It ""»s one of the
servants whom he was eottrtlng at the
time who wns the real thief."
"Then I nm cleared ut last?" she
cried joyfully.
"Y'es. I could have told you nil this a
few hours ugo. but I wanted you to
learn to trust your husband more fully.
I am glad that you have told mo everything frankly. Now let us forget Ihe
pnst."
"The best birthday gift you have glv
en me is your forgiveness." she sold
gratefully.—Pcuny Pictorial Magazine,

subject by easy conversational stages.

h FRIEND
I      IN NEED !
S   How a Great Merchant Was Won
9 Over to Mercy. j
It was close to 3 o*olock in tbe afternoon when Amog Garner returned from
luncheon. He was a busy man and
lunched when he caught the favorable
moment. The cares of a great mercantile establishment weighed heavy on
his shoulders. He showed the burden in
his seamed and knotted faee. He was
not reckoned a kindly or a sympathetic
man, and his appearance, his sharp
glance, his hooked nose and his nggres-
■ive chin bore out the popular opinion.
As he entered bis private ollice ho
brushed by two young men who wero
seated on a settee near the door. One ot
the two was a mere boy, of nineteen,
perhaps, a pale faced young follow who
manifestly shrank back as the elder
youth took him by tbo arm and led him
into Amos Gainer's room. The great
merchant was hanging up his heavy coat
as they entered. Ho turned quickly nud
looked at the pair.
"Mr. Cinruer," said tho older youth,
"we have a little business to transact
with you und will make it as brief as
possible."
The merchant looked at them sharply
and then -seated himself at his desk aud
drummed nervously on tho polished surface before bim.
"Business of interest to me?" he asked, with lowered brows.
"Yes," replied the older of the two.
"Mnke it brief," said the merchant nnd
pointed to seats.
The older youth drew his chair close
to tho desk, the boy Bitting in the shadow a little behind bim.
"Mr. Qarnet'i" said the older youth,
"I was on my way to Buffalo hist night
by boat. I saw this buy in the ouluu
writing, ami his appearance attracted
me. liis agitation, his trembling hands,
the tears in his eyes, drew me to bim.
I knew ho was iu trouble." Tho merchant raised his head a lillle and cast a
sharp glance toward the hoy. But the
latter had drawn back behind his companion aud was quite shielded from
view. "I watched the boy," the speaker
proceeded, "and when lie had finished
Ins writing and placet! the sheets iu addressed envelopes and left them lying
on the table 1 picked them up nud hurried after him as he ascended to tho
deck. I was close behind him when ho
threw down his hat nnd clambered on
the rail. I drew him back. I did my best
to calm him, and presently he told mo
his story, and I gave him the best advice
I could."
The merchant leaned forward to have
a better look at the speaker.
"Are you quite suro this interests me?"
be said.
"Quite sure," replied the older youth
gravely. "One of tho letters written by
this unfortunate boy is addressed to you,
the other was to have beeu forwarded to
his invalid sister. The boy was running
nwny sir, running nwny from you, aud
then, when he saw the futility of such
a course, he determined to end his troubles at once and forever. He sees things
in n different light now, and the first
morning train from Buffalo brought him
hack hero to tell you so."
"Thnt'a very thoughtful of him," said
the great merchant grimly.
"Hero is tbo letter," snid the older
youth.
The merchant took tho envelope and
stared at the address.
"It's a very pretty story," he said,
with n half sneer.
"It's a very ugly story," Bald the older
youth.
"Of course I am to understand that
thia young fellow has been stealing either my money or iny stock," the merchant went on,
"The letter will tell you that he has
embezzled $202," said the older youth.
"Then it's a case for tho police," said
tho merchant, nnd his hnnd reached for
the electric button at the side of his desk.
Then he hesltnted, his gnzo meeting
thnt of the older youth, whose eyes were
gtuntle nnd yet steady aud fearless. Ho
slowly drew back.
"1 ought to send for aa officer at
once," he growled.
"But you will not," said the older
youth.
Tho merchant raised his heavy eyebrows aud stared nt the spenker again.
"What's the boy's name?" he nsked.
"John Healhcote."
"Where was he employed?"
"He was nn assistant iu the cashier's
department."
"What was bis salary?"
"Ten dollars a week."
"What did he do with It?"
"Supported himself and an Invalid sister."
"How did he steal tho money?"
"He had bills to collect last week, and
he failed lo turu in all his collections."
•   "Wbat did he do with the stolen money?"
"It went Into a bucket shop. He wns
lured into it by some of his fellow clerks.
He didn't know the danger, and the stories they tuld him of sudden gains turned
Ids head. He lost from tho start, and it
was the attempt to retrieve theso early
losses lhat swelled the defnlcntions."
"Thai's on old story," said the grim
merchant*
"Painfully told and painfully true/' asserted the young man.
"There Is a proposition, I suppose?"
growled the merchant.
"There Is."
Before the old man could pursue hla
queries there v. as a rap nt the door.
"Come in," said the merchant.
A clerk entered.
"The gentleman from Atlanta,, who
desired to see you at 3 o'clock, Is here,
sir," he said.
"Tell him I'm engaged this afternoon,"
Raid the old merchant "I will see him
at 1) tmnorrow moruiug."
"He wished mi*, to say that he will bo
obliged to returu Immo tonight, sir."
"If   he   cnu't   see   i *.,*,-   nt   ».   let   him
write." said the merchant sharply, and
the clerk withdrew.
Then the grim old man turned bnck to
the youth.
"Before we go any further in this matter," he said, "I want to know what interest you have in it."
"An iniercst that has nothing to do
with dollars and cents," said the youth,
with a little smile.
The old man shook his head doubt-
In gly.
"Friend of the sister's, perhaps?"
The face of the youth flushed a little.
"I hnvo never seen her," ho snid.
"But why should you stick by the
boy?"
"Because he needs a friend," said the
young man simply and stretched his
arm back and luid hia hand on the hand
of the boy.
The boy, crouching behind his friend,
uttered a quick sob.
"Stop thnt," said the old merchant
sharply. "We can't hnvo any disturbance here."
Thero was a little silence.
"What's your proposition?" ho abruptly Gfd;ed.
"It's very simple," replied the young
man. "We propose that you take back
this erring hut contrite boy and that you
give bim the chance to pay back the
amount he has taken. Let him pay a
part of his salary each week until tho
delinquency is wiped out. ln the meantime you hold that letter as proof of his
misdeed."
The old merchant frowned.
"That would he establishing a very
bad precedent," he growled.
"There Is ono other condition,0 the
young man went on. "Tho ulTuir is to remain a profound secret, known to no
ono outside of this room."
The old man opened his eyes.
"Are you aware that I am considered
a hard man?" he slowly asked. "Haven't
you heard that most of my 500 employees regard me as a soulless tyrant?"
"1 have learned to distrust popular
prejudice in these personal matters," replied tho young man. "My own'father
has been beld up to the world as nn example of heartless greed nud cartooned
and vilified, when 1 know he is the best
of men."
But tho old merchant did not heed Ida
words. He was looking at tho hoy's letter.
"In the Gist place," ho said, "we
might ns well destroy this. It could
make trouble in lhe future." And he
tore tho envelope and its contents Into
fragments. Then he looked up. "Boy,"
he said, "come here." The lad arose and
stepped to the desk. The old man looked
him over. "You may go bnck to your
place," he said. "Each Saturday afternoon you will bring to me ?2 from your
salary. If 1 find that you are faithful
aud ambitious, you may rest assured
thnt I will recognize the fact in a practical way. Should your sister notice that
your salary is apparently decreased, you
may say to her that you are investing it
in a sinking fund by my personal advice.
That is all. Beturn to your work nud
tell the cashier thot you wero detained
by me."
"Thank you sir," said the boy brokenly.
"I fancy your thanks nre all duo to this
smiling Samaritan here," said tho old
man. "He has saved both your life and
your honor, and if you ever forget it you
are—well, certainly not tho boy I am
willing to aid."
The lad caught tho young man's hand
and pressed it and then hurried from
the room.
"Oue moment," snid tho old merchant
as his visitor arose. "If you are not employed or wish a change, I wonld bo
glad to offer you a place."
"Thank you," said tho young man,
"but I am na well satisfied with ray present placo as I ever hope to bo with nny
form of labor. I'm a natural Idler, you
know."
The old mnn shook his head as though
he doubted this, aud there was a wistful
look In his eyes us ho regarded tha
young man.
"I regret that you cannot come," he
said. "I would like to huvo you near
mo. You aro a very unusual sort of
young mau. But you'll promise mo one
thing—you'll como in to seo mo from
time to time, won't you?"
"Witli pleasure," replied tho visitor.
"It will givu me the chance to inquiro
after my protege. And from what he
told me I think I would like to know
more nbout his invalid sister,'1 He looked nt the old man nnd smiled. "Perhaps
we might do something to make her dull
life a littlo brighter."
Tho old man nodded as If In answer to
on appeal.
"I feel sure we can," ho snid. Then
ho put out his hand. "Before you go I
wnnt to know your name."
"Greer, Dunham Greer," replied the
young man.
"Greer?" repeated the old man. "Yon
snid something a moment ngo about
your father. I didn't quite catch tho remark.  Is ho the railway king?"
"Ho haa been called so," Dunham replied.
"Understand mo," snid the old man.
"I don't think any moro of you on this
accouut."
"Why should you?" cried Dunham
lightly. "At times I havo found it a
positive handicap. A rich mnn's son
gets credit for very littlo useful behavior
In this prejudiced world. It's quito'discouraging."
But ho Innghed as he said It.
"Thank God that riches haven't spoiled you," said tho old man solemnly.
And their bauds met in a worm clasp.
Thnt evening Dunham criticnlly stared at himself in the glass in his hotel
room.
"Well, Dunnie, my boy," he said to his
smiling reflection, "you missed nn important business engagement iu Buffalo,
and, what Is worse, you don't look ns If
you regrelted it In the least. You aro
quite a hopeless case, old fellow. Good
uight."—Cleveland Plaio Dealer.

MONEY RAN SHORT
The Clinuce Tliat Event Produced I*
the Clftiua Acrobat.
Pome Interesting Btovles fro told about
the circus business, but one of ihe lust
heard in a lung while wis told by nu old
press agent:
"The shew hnd had a prosperous season in tho north. The proprietor made up
his miud there could he no end to good
business, and he planned a trip south f*>r
the winter months. The cotton crop was
poor, and all Intelligent circus men steer
clear of the south whon cotton is poor.
His friends weut to hiiu mid tried to get
him to give up tbe winter trip, b'jt he was
persistent.
"Whon (he show struck Arkansas, business began to drop off. The people didn't
havo the money, und they couldn't patronize the Bhowi
"One Thursday night notices were posted In the dressing tent thnt the show
would close the season on Saturday night
nnd that the employees would receive
their salaries on Sunday.
"On Sunday morning all were on hand
to get.their 'dough.' The cashier was at
the window of tlie ticket wagon and was
banding it out with accustomed ulaciity.
To appreciate this story you must understand lhat all circuses pay off their hands
alphabet ie!\lly, the Arnolds, tho Bur-
tons, tho Campbells, Dentous nnd so oa.
When the cashier got down to tho Wvb ha
ran short of money and several bud to co
without.
"There wns a fellow of the stage name
of Zeno wbo did stunts on the horizontal
bar and who was lato in getting over to
the ticket wagon. When ho rushed np
all out of breath and found the wagon
closed, there wns plenty of trouble In
sight. Somo of the other belated employees whoso names began with Initials
near the bottom ot the alphabet announced to him that there was uo more
money, and then the nir was blue. He
Started out on a hunting tour for the circus proprietor,
" 'I'd like to know why 1 don't get my
money?' he began.
" T nm sorry, old mnn,' snid the proprietor. 'I have tried to bo square. 1
nave paid out my money until 1 ran
short.'
"To make a long story short, tho proprietor mado all sorts of apologies and
finally succeeded in pacifying the huri-
eontnl bnr man.
"'You have been with me several son-
sons, and yon know that I uim to do what
Is right,' said the circus proprietor. 'I
want you to Blgn n contract with me for
next season, nnd the first money I matte
I will seo that you aro reimbursed for
waiting."
"Zeno signed the contract reluctantly
and rent nway to his home. Spring
came, aad the 'only big show' was having
Its seals painted, chnriots regilded nnd
everything got in remliiKMH for the opening. About two weeks before lhe opening
the performers began to assemble at winter quarters. One afternoon when tho
train pulled up nt the station Zeno alighted. The proprietor was thero to greet
bim.
" 'Hello, Zeno!' he exclaimed ns he
slnppod blm on the back. "By Jove, I am
gbid to see you, old mnn"
"'Not on your life!' said Zeno. 'My
name Is AJ.ix this sensou.' "

a Reporter to osaawa-His Inqulp-
lo-. Kesult ui Complete Verification
of Oi l.lnal Story.
Very many startling etor'.ea of won*
tj«rful cures by Dodd'a Kidney Pills have
bren publJsh6d in these columns, and in
other newspaper,} all over the country
from tliriD to t'me.
Evtry ca.^e ha.i been so well authen-
t;£i..t>l as to leave little roo.n for doubt,
and y^t the ttatemenU mads and the
cures reported, have, in ma,ny cases,
b.en eo nearly mlraodloua a3 to be almost b?yond belief.
Recently Tha Mail and Rmpiro of To-
rcnto and oth^r papers published a fl.s-
p^tch fronr Oshawa, in wh'.ch it waa
fiaid that a mechanic in the Oshawa
Malleable Iron Works had been cured
of paralysis by Dodd'a Kidney Pills, and
th.tt aft'r he had been absolutely helpless for four months, and had been given
up by the phyo^ciana at the hospital
ln Toronto.
ThU waa too much for many people
to believe, aud numerous demands weie
made on the paper in question for a
yerificatlon or correction.
One correspondent signing himself
"M-d!cui" ln a letter to the Mail and
Empire opahly disputed the possibility
of SUCh  a  cure.
To g.t ut the real fact"* u reporter
wa? suit to Oahawa, and the result was
a complete confirmation of the original
^tspatch. To put ths mat.er absolutely beyond question the fo.lowing uworn
(itfttement  was secured:
Tne Statement of Mr, Brown.
In the fall of mi I was taken 111
with what most of th3 doctors called
paralysis, and others nervous prostration, it commenced w'.th a stiffness
and sorf-ne.33 In the calves of my legs
and gradually Increased till I could not
mOve e.th*?r of my arm3 or logs, having
lost ail power tn them. I could not
have raised my arms to my h£ad to save
my life. For over lour months I could
not tt.nl or walk a single step. I doctored with all the local doctors, and
thi'n w.th a Dowrr.anvil.e doctor. Each
ope g:tve me Borne different medicine,
but thi more I took ths worse I go*
At last the Dowmanviile doctor told
mo that nothing could ba done for me
unless I wont to the hospital in Toronto, where they might perhaps have some
later treatment for paralysis which
would fit my ca3e. I went there toward Uu end of January, 1838, and remained undsr treatment ln that institution for a little over four weeks.. "X.11
was in vain; I got worse. Twelve doctors told me I could not recover, and
that nothing could ba done for me, so,
as I wa-s getting worse every day, and
th^re was no hops of their being able
to help me In the least, I was removed
to my horns here. I waa likj a baby,
unable to move.
At this extremity someone advised ma
to use Dodd'a Kidney P.lls, and my wife
bought a box. We had not the slightest Idea that they would help me, but,
like a drowning man, I grasped at every
£traw. After I had used the first box
th9 numbness began to leave my finger
tips, and I felt a little better, and kept
on using th3 pills. By two months'
tiim-D I could walk a Little, a-nd shortly afterward was able to go short distances without assistance.
'The first time I went down town one
•f the doctors who had given me up
■aw me across the street, and, not being
able to believe hia eyes, went to my
brother Robert, and asked, "Is that your
brother Joe?" Robert told him that
It waa I, and he said in astonishment,
| "Well, I never expected to see him
around again."
I usod altogether twelve boxes of
Dodd's Kidney Pills, and by the first
of May I was ablo to start to work
again in the shop here, and I havo never
boon elck or off work a day since then,
that Is over three and -a half yean
ago.
I am glad of the opportunity to make
this statement, for I am sure I owe my
life, health and strength to work to that
great remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills,

rOriginal.]
After leaving college I determined to
take a course at one of the German
universities. I cbose Heidelberg, v.-bich
ln tbose days was tbe best known, and
took a three years' course. 1 joined
one of tbe corps and in time became
Involved ln several student duels.
When I left Heidelberg, where 1 bad
taken more interest in tbe small sword
than my studies, I stopped in Paris before returning to America, witli n view
tff seeing some French fencing. One
evening a party of us visited tbe celebrated scbool of M. Brlsson. While we
were watching tbe pupils fence u mnn
entered and after looking on for awhile
proposed to take tbe foils with the
principal. Brisson consented ami was
astonished, us we all were, at tlie stranger's skill. After disarming his adversary be took up n piece of chalk, rubbed it ou tbe foil, and, calling to l.ris-
son to place himself on guard, made
one brilliant stroke after another and
at Inst left a chalk mark of a figure 8
on tbo fencing master's waistcoat directly over the heart.
"Victor Morrel I" exclaimed several
who were present with tbo same
breath.
"Who Is Victor Morrel?" I asked.
"The most noted swordsman ll
Frauce."
"A duelist?"
"No; singularly enough, he has not
the courage to fight a duel."
"What is his occupation?"
My lnformunt, a Frenchman, Bhnig*
ged bis shoulders nfter the French
fashion and walked out of Iho scbool
without replying to my question. Brlsson at once doffed his wire mask and
put up his foil. In doing so he turned
his back upon bis former antagonist
aud took care to keep It turned till
Moirel bad left the academy. Evidently the man who bad shown bis skill
was not a favorite witb blm or, for the
matter of tbat, with any one present
The Frenchmen all departed, leaving
tbe room to our party. Morrel also departed, and as he passed me I noticed
tbe most repulsive face I had ever seen
on a man. I did not wonder at the disfavor ln which he was held. I should
have been afraid to pass bim In a lonely road had he cause to prick me ln tbe
bnck.
Three years later, ln company with
my friend Walter Douglas, I again visited Europe, sailing from New York to
Cherbourg and going from there to
Mentone, a winter resort In tho south
of Frauce. One evening Douglas went
to walk with a little French girl who
had captivated him by ber smart appearance. He failed to return to tho
hotel, nnd toward morning, becoming
anxious for his safety, I went to search
for him. I found him lying ln his blood
la tke gardens stabbed through the
heart His coat had been cut by the
point of a knife or sword so ns to mako
what looked like the letter S. The
blade bad entered the heart at the
polut whero tbe tracing ceased.
In agony at the murder of my friend,
I called a gendarme, and the body was
removed. I made every effort to find
the murderer, but without success. The
mysterious letter S cut in his coat
would not be dropped from my mind.
It seemed to partly awaken somo memory. At Inst 1 remembered Morrel nnd
the figure 8 be bad chalked on tho
waistcoat of M. Brlsson. Then It occurred to me tbat tho letter S was an
Incomplete figure 8.
Going at once to the police ofllce, 1
requested them to arrest the littta
French girl whom Douglas had beea
with on the night of his murder, and
when she arrived at tho police ofllce I
questioned her myself. Sbe came In
charge of a gendarme, frightened nnd
weeping, but, I fancied, on ber guard.
"Have you a lever?" I asked.
"No, m'sleu."
"Do you know any one expert with
the sword?"
"No, m'sleu."
Bhe preserved ber equanimity, but I
saw that the question startled her.
"Did you ever sec a man cut or mark
the figure 8 upon an adversary's
breast?"
She turned pale anil did not reply.
"Whero is Victor Morrel?"
This broke her down. "I had nothing
to do with It," she cried. "He was Jealous of—the American. Do not bring
me to the guillotine, 1 beseech you."
I turned to the prefect of police.
"The case is ln your hands," I said.
"Find Victor Morrel."
"Where Is M. Morrel}" ha asked of
tbe girl.
"Ob, I do not kno*.v!  Spare mel"
"Take her away," said the officer to
the gendarme. "She will finish her career on the guillotine."
This was too much for her fidelity to
her lover. "I do not know whero be
is," she said. "Yesterday ha was ln
Marseilles."
That evening Morrel was arrested In
Marseilles and brought to Mentone for
trial. He put on a bold front, feeling
sure that thero were no witnesses of
the murder.
"M. Morrel," asked the prosecuting
attorney, "why were you so foolhardy
as to leave the figure 8 on the heart of
the man yon killed?"
"I did not," tho prisoner exclaimed,
paling.
"It looked like tho letter S, but had
you completed lt you would bavo mudo
an 8 of lt."
Tho prosecutor beld np tho murdered
man's coat, ou which had been cut tha
letter H. Tho prisoner fell buck, clutching his hair and moaning:
"I must have been drunk.*
It appeared Inter that he had heen
drinking heavily and wns unconscious
of cutting tbo mark ho was accustomed to leave on those he worsted In
fencing. Ho was convicted, and before
I left France ho was taken out of Jail

THE   AFTER     EFFECTS   OFTEN   WORSt
THAN THE DISEASE ITSELF.
A Sufferer from the After Effects of
Typhoid Tell3 oi  His Deplorable
ConUition*"Appnared to be ill
a Rapid Decline.
The after effects of some troubles,
such ns fevers, la B''.pp'-', etc.. art
fiequ.ntly more serious ln their results than the original nines.-., and
Ihn paUent is leu an nlmosit physical wreck. In imeii cases ns these
what is needed s a to lie medicine,
to enrich the blood. atrintfLhen the
nerves, and put th system right Mr.
L. Barnhardt, a piosperous young
fanner living near Wetland, ont., otters proof cf tile truth of these Bta. -
ments. Mr. Barnhardt says: "Somo
years ue-o, while living In the United
States, I was uttaclced by typho'd
fever, the after-eft cis of which proved
more disastrous to my eonatitutl in
than the fever Hcelt, and for months
I wus on amo;t total wreck. I had
no appetite, was haggard und emaciated, and apparently bloodless. I had
violent and distressing headaches, und
tny whole npp iirance was suggestlv
of a rapid deoMne. I tried no less than
three doctors, but they failed to b-mint me. At thin Junoture a frond at
miine mentioned my case to another
physician, und he suggested that I
should tuke a corns- of Ur. Williams'
Pink Pills. I took this advice and
found it m-st satisfactory. Almost
from the outset the p.lls helped me,
und I continued their use until I had
taken about u doz?n boxes, when 1
felt myself fuliy ri s oied to my former
health, and my weight mcr use I to
16f, pounds. 1 have enjoyed the best rf
health ever since, and I will always
glvi Dr. Williams' lJink Pdls tn
praise they ;o ilchy deserve."
These pills are a certain cure for
tho aW r effcts of fever, la grippe an J
-pneumonia. They miuK*s new, rich, red
blood and stiengChen the newts from
first dose to lost; and in this way th y
cure such troubles as anaemia, neuralgia, rheumaitism, heart wefdeness,
k dney and liver aliments, pai tlal paralysis, r=t. Vitus dance, etc. They also
cuie -the funct onal ailments that m.itte
•the lives of so many worn n a sun ice
of go-aslant in sery, and bring tlio g'.o.v
of health to pale and sallow chefeks

A Victoria despatch of tbe 13th says:

Tbe lack of transportation lu the St.
Marys river country has undoubtedly
kept ltIn the the background and tbe
general public are not aware of tbe
vast mineral resources of that
region. The hope that the C. P. R.
or some other railway company, will
build up the St. Marys river has led us
to post ourselves on the facts connected
wltb the mines and prospects of that
district more particularly because each
and every claim on the St. Marys is
tributary to Marysville. Starting from
Marysville, about a mile north west of
the town Is the "Omlnlca Group," owned by L Jones and F. Tracy. Tbis group
bas a 6 foot lead of copper, carrying
values in gold. Tbe owners have done
some thousands of dollars worth of
work on this group and have a large
quantity of dry ore ln sight. SU miles
up Mathew Creek, "Ben" Peugh has a
group of graphite claims at present
practically undeveloped.
At tbe head of the St. Mirys lake, 12
miles from Marysville, is situated the
Howes Group of copper and galena
claims. On this group 500 feet of tunnelling bas been done. Adjoining the
Howes Group is the McFarlain Group
also copper and galena properties on
which a great deal of work has been
accomplished. On the opposite side of
the lake is the Curren Group which
have been held for two years and on
which much work has been done. Its
values are ln copper and galena. Alki
Creek, which empties Into the St.
Marys river just above tbe lake has
vast mineral resources, The Hard
Scrabble Gronp owned by Fred Hazen
and his associates is a copper property
carrying valuea ln gold on wbich a
great deal of work, about $5,000 in all
has been expended. Adjoining the Hard
Scrabble are a number of claims owned
by 0. Hangerford Pollen, W. A.
Meachem, and Robt. Dewer all of which
are like tbe Hard Scrabble, dry ore pro-
erpties and all of wbicb have a good
quantity of ore in sight. The John
Bull Group, another dry ore proposition
Is a property situated 10 miles up the
river from the Smelter City, on which
$5,000 worth of work has been done and
which Is owned by F. Tracy and H.
Bradford.
Opposite the John Ball group Is the
mouth of White Fish Creek on which
creek C. H Pollen has a group of four
claims carrying copper and gold a:.d ou
which he has done a great deal of work.
On the same creek are situated the
McKay and Guun Group, the Evans
Group, the Swanson and Mathers Gronp
the Sunbeam Group and the Copper
King Group. These groups carry values
iu gold, copper, sliver aud lead.
Many of the claims mentioned above
are crown granted.
Going up the St. Marys again we
come to tbe Malachite Group 17 miles
from Marysville. It is owned by Chas.
Quarndstron and H. B, Thompson. Here
copper assaying 30 per cent Is found in
tbe form of malachite. Still further
up the river is tbe Pyrimld camp, distanced 25 miles from Marysville. This
group of 14 claims all crown granted Is
owned by an English syndicate. Also
28 miles up from Marysville we come to
the Eist fork of the river on which
there are several galena and copper
properties, J. Matheson and F. E
Vlrden are the names of two men who
nave steadily developed property there
for five years.
On the west fork of the river
is the Great Dane Group said to
be one of the largest lead deposits in
British Columbia J. C. Drury is the
head of the company handling lt. The
Welcome, Enterprise and Surprise
groups are ou tbe west fork, owned by
J. Ercott, Murphy, Phillips anil Lovat.
About 817,000 has been spent on
this group and the Trail Smelter company had a bond on lt two years ago, but
had to throw lt up for lack of transportation.
On the north fork of the river we flrd
the McLean and Gann Gronp consisting
of 20 claims, carrying high values lo
galena and copper.
Ou tbe south fork of the i lver we
aave the Wells and Tanhouser group of
0 claims carrying copper with (25 in
gold. The King aud yuoen group, be-
.uiiglng to Quarnstrom and Murphy.
Tie Baker and Hazen and the W. A
Meachem groups. On Ollice Creek 30
allies up the river there are a group of
24 claims which have been held by a
Uossland syndicate for years, On Buck
Current Creek 40 miles up the aiver Is a
gronp of copper properties held for five
years by Mathew and Swanson.
Tne Bracebrulge group is also ln this
vicinity owneu by S. Loveu.
Ou Irish Queen Mountain is the
Hooker Group wbich he has held for 8
years.
We then come to Rogers Pass tbe
lowest pass over the divide on the St
Marys. There are many claims ln the
pass all of which have been represented
for years. Space does not permit ns to
mention all the claims, by any means,
on the St. Marya, but the few we have
mentioned are enough to show that it
is a mineral country with a great future
and one that would supply tonnage to
any railway building in.
Anniversary of Vancouver Fire.
Saturday last was the thirteenth anniversary of tbe fire which swept Vancouver off the map in two short hours.
Several Rosslanders were resident in
Vanvouver at the time of the fire, and
their reminiscences of the blase are
decidedly interesting. H. P. McCraney
was among the number, but he was far
enough away from the origin of ihe fire
to escape without encountering danger.
This was not the case with Judge Boult*
bee, however. His honor was overtaken by the dense smoke from the
blazing buildings, aod ouly escaped suffocation by burying his face lna hastily
scraped hole and thus avoiding the
worst of the billows of smoke sweeping
past.
Tbe fire originated ln the western
section of the town, which then consist-
ted of 300 houses, or thereabouts, and
perhaps 2,000 inhabitants. Some land
was being cleared, and the men on this
work built fires to dispose of the debris.
From this the flames were communicated to nearby buildings. A high wind
prevailed and burning embers were
blown from one building to others distant ln some cases a couple of blocks.
The whole town was a sea of flame in
less than 30 minutes, and two hours
from tbe first outbreak Vancouver was
wiped off the map. So fiercely did tbe
conflagration extend that several persons were overtaken ln the Streets and
lost their lives. The city was practically unprotected by flre-figbting appliances, and even If a thoroughly
trained brigade had been at hand the
outcome must have been the same under the circumstances. Tne damage
was roughly estimated at half a million.
Only one building remained standing
after the fire burnt Itself ont, and by
a remarkable chance tbis building was
the nearest of all to the point where the
fire started. The Hotel Reglna caugbt
lire from tbe burning biush Leaps and
was promptly abandoned by proprietor
and guests. The men engaged in clear,
ing gathered about the premises, however, and succeeded in quenching the
flames. They then took possession 'of
the premises and proceeded to devote
themselves to the worship of Bacchus
undisturbed.
The residents of Vancouver Immediately set about rebuilding tbe town,
and as buildings of a much more substantial nature were erected the fire
was not altogether au unmixed afflc-
tion.
