As we said last week there are those
woo do not believe la Marysville. There
were people who did Dot btlleve In
Spokane, In Butte, lo Vancouver and tn
a hundred other places one might
mention. But they were wrong. Aod
the people who do not believe In Marysville as a comming prosperous, progressive and growing town are wrong also.
Where in British Columbia, or for
tbat matter In the entire west, can anyone point to aa much work done In the
same space of time as on the Marysville amelter site! Forty three days
only have been apent, at the present
time, on tbe construction of the smelter.
During that time tbe frames of all
tbe buildings have been completed, the
lone or water line has been finished,
the foundation for tbe walla In tbe
roaatcr building are done and the
treaties for the tbree railway tracka
are almost finished at tbla writing. We
aay again show us a paralleled case lu
the entiie west.
Of conrae providence haa been good,

The Spokane ofli e..of the company

from Marysville, showing vl?ws of the
new town ar.d the progress of tbe work
on the new smelting plant. Last October tbe only building on tbe site of the
new town was an old log hotel, but tbe
photograph of the place taken the latter
part of December shows a number of
well constructed business, buildings In
which Is represented nearly every
branch of trade, including a real estate
onlceand a newspaper.
The photograph of tbe smelter building shows that It Is nearly completed,
and a commodious office building bas
been finished and Is ready for occupancy. Close to tbe amelter building is a

Little Harold Bailey is suffering from
several very severe wounds which were

Considerable apprehension existed in
financial circles in reference to tbe introduction of pennies into Fernie. The
quarantine at the Victoria waa the immediate cause of the untowatd incident
though Manager Gates disclaims any re.
spontibility. He saya tbey were issued

It waa tbe opinion of the health offi
cere tbat the smallpox had been rflfectu
ally stamped out last week and it waa so
recorded in these columns The quarantine at tbe mines had been raised and
the feeling of uneasiness that prevailed
to some considerable extent had entire y
subsided. On Sunday morning, however, the report that two cases had been
located In two of lhe hotels was court, uied and the bouses were promptly
tied up with -til the inmates and a general proclhinatiod issued forbidding all
public gatherings and permitting no one
to leave tbe town under any circumstances until further notice. Such conditions are no doubt irksome nnd cause a
good deal of inconvenience but the situation calls for lhe most slrenons measures to effect a complete stamping out
of the disease. It is the duly ol all citizens to afford every assistance to the authorities in carrying out the terms of
the proclamation. We repeal that the
disease has been in neariv every ihstance
of an exceedingly mild type, there being
110 deaths and all of the victims are progressing aa favorably os cun be expected.
Edward Saundera, the president of the  Board of Control
Of the Sullivan Group Mining- and Smi ting Company says:

That ihe smelter will be operated so long as there 1b a %

that this will be done and when I say that I mean  it"        ••>

for the McKenzie-Mann properties in
British Columbia. Mr. Brown will re

seem strange indeed.

A number of people have been worrying about the Ice supply for this year,
thinking lhat the season was so backward that il might uot be possible to s -
cure the necessary amount. James
Ryan, speaking of the matter on Tue-t
day. said: "We have p'enty of time
yet. Last year we did not get our supply until February, and I guess we will
have enough cold weather yet to make
the supply adequate to m«*et all demands." The ice will he secured al
Moyie lake again this year, and in all
probability Marysville will go ihere for
its supply also.

St. Eugene resumes operations in the
spring, a line will be constructed to
Moyie, and in all probability a line will
be built to Elko, Morrlssey and Fernie.
An exchange will also be put in here at
Cranbrook, as the demand for it is
growing more pressing month by month.

Wants   to    Control   the   Coal   Output
of Crow's Nest.
In an exhaustive article, the Nelson
Tribune siys: Shall J. J. Hill control
our fuel suppHT Is a question that baa
arisen In the Crow's Nest Pass, In which
we of tbe Kootenays bave a deep In*
terest. The facta are brUflv at follows: Experts employed bv the Dominion government to examine tbe coal
measures there report, so far as tbev
can determine at present, that mining
nan be carried on economically at four
points only, namely, at Michel, at Coal
Greek* on land north of Morrlssey creek
and on land south of Morrlssey. The
Crow'aNest Coal cmnpanv la already
operating at M'chel and Coal Creek,
and will shortly begin operating north
of Morrlssey. Their present desire (s
to secure the land sou'h of Mcrrlss^y,
In which event they would hare an absolute monopoly of all the accessible
coal lands !n the Crow's Nest Pass.
The land south of Morrlssey, however,
la controlled by the Dominion government, that is to sav, will form part of
tbe land to be selected by the minister
of the interior under the arrangement
made by the government when the
Crow's Nest Coal companv Is not asking
for the land south of Morrlssey In Its
own name. That would be too patent
and audacious a step even for J J. Hill,
who his a large Interest In the company
and will obtain full control cf it so soon
as bis branch from Kallspel to Fernie
Is completed. What the company Is doing therefore Is this; It Is tnlng to
secure the land for a so-called independent company, but a company really subsidiary to lt«elf We are certain that
Mr. SI'ton wilt not allow himself to be
over-reached tn this bold fashion. Consider what would happen If Mr. Illtl
controlled the coal and crke supply in
the Crow's Nest Pass Naturally his
effort** would be directed to building up
the smelter Industry in the United
States. To accomplish this be would
provide the smelters which he might
erpct j'ist south of the brundary with
coke and coal at a cheaper price than
lhat charged to Canadian smelters.
This would enable him to reduce the
cost of smelting on tbe American side
below the lowest figure that could be
q inted by Canadian smelters, inasmuch
a fuel constftues a vcrv la^gc Item ln-
deen In the coat of smelting, With
cheaper smelting he would surely attract British Columbia ores to his
smelters on the American side.

A word as to his Americanism. ITe
wrote about it In a letter of 1894.
In that letter ho says:
"True Americanism is ns absolutely alien to .knownothingism on the
one hand ns it is to every form of
foreignism on lhe other.
"We have nothing to do in our
political platforms with the rivalry
between Germany and France, with
the question of home rule for Ireland
or of union for the British Empire.
All we are concerned with nre the
questions of American politics, and
wo have the right to demand that
every American voter should vote
purely with reference to those questions.
"But if the foreign-born citizen
who comes over here honestly and in
good faith fulfills the duties of Ame
good faith fulfills the duties of
American citizenship and acts ns an
American pure ami simple, at is most
emphatically an outrage to discriminate against him in any way because of his birthplace or his creed."

When ho came nut of college he entered the law ofllce of Ills uncle, but
even then had tho desire to engage in
"the work of governing." When,
therefore, long before he had been
admitted to the bar, he saw a chance
to be nominated to the Assembly,
tie reached out and took the chance,
winning handsomely at the polls before he had  been a voter two years.
During the session of 1MH1-83 he
devoted a great deal of attention to
the study of parliamentary forms
ami usages, and so successful was he
iu acquainting himself witli the methods of procedure, and so solid was
much of his work, that he was made
the leader of his party during the
next session—that of lHJ-.U-H.J. Il
was in this session that tie took up
civil service reform, with which he
has since been so prominently identified.
Mr. Roosevelt married Miss Edith
Kcrmit Cnrow in 1880, uud they

Madison Avenue, New York, but
lhat is a rented house. His home,
Where all his children were born, is
called Sagamore Hill, and Is at

There he spends all his time when
not officially engaged, and to the
minds of himself und his friends it is
as lovely a home as there is In the
United .States, albeit It is a simple
one in many respects. It stands ou

Of all the races nt the recent Cnl-

were tlie most amusing. They nil
go in to win, so a man can pick his
horse nnd be sure there will be no
crooked work. The Nlchls don't use
saddles in their races, merely carrying a sort of "quirt," a stick with
a leather thong, and this they apply
inceasingly to the ponies' flanks.

about saving a horse's wind, and
ride at full speed from start to finish, so it is only Hie best horse that
wins. On qqq occasion they made

seeing that it removes the objection
of conspicuous poles. We are informed that though this system of
ground telegraphy, like the Marconi
method, is wireless, Col. de Pilsoud-
ski owes little or nothing to the
latter invention-for the inception of
his idea. Indeed, lie had been making experiments in ground telegraphy
as far back as 1874, and it is only
now by the aid of his friends, M.
NchnolTer, M. Pn.ssek and M. IHlcre-
tet (the latter the constructor of the
apparatus), that he has brought his
idea to a state of working perfection. Uol. Filsoudski lion now entirely dispensed with the tall antennae by which the Marconi system is so readily recognized, nnt! instead of sending the electric
waves through the air he
places his transmitter nnd receiver
on the ground itself. The apparatus connected with the transmitter
and receiver- is a perfected form of
that used in the system of ordinary
wireless telegraphy. Wo give diagrams of the apparatus. At each of
the points the two poles ore joined
ou one side to the ground by means
of a metal disc sunk in the soil to
a certain depth, nnd on the other
side to a species of I.eydeu jar- contained in a wooden casing placed on
u piece of insulated glass. These
communication points may be hidden

which was curried out in two villa
gardens of Vesinet, nbout 560 yards
apart, most successfully, in spite of
tlio fact that they were divided by
trees, hedges and many kinds of obstacles. Tho next experiment was
much more ambitious. Tho points
on this occasion were over 2,00.0

villa of Vesinet nnd the other on tho

Keeplrntorj Gymnastics Tend to

Xntnre to Disease—The Lesson of
the Black Hole of Caleotto.
To my mind the part of the physical
man upon which depends all the possibilities of mental resource Is tbat
part which bas relation to respiration
and which for Its perfect work depends upon the quality of tbe air We
breathe, the quantity respired and the
method thereof.' The apparatus for
respiration consists of tbe lungs, which
are double, the one on the right side
having three lobes, tbe ether on th*
left only two. We must always bear
iu mind that nature is generous In ber
provisions, and sbe bas given us so
much at lung tissue that a large part
enn be quickly exhnusted and become
Inactive, yet life endure for Its legitimate threescore years and ten and lt>
duties and activities continue unhindered by any conscious lack. Under
the microscope the lung tissue shows
nn Infinite number of tiny cells or ultimate lobules. Borne have estimated
those at five or six hundred million,
nnd, wonderful to relate, only wltb the
first breath that the Infant draws are
both lungs ever filled with absolutely
new air. All through life there Is necessarily what we call a residual nlr,
which may be of a greater or less
amount, according to tbe breathing
habit of the individual. It is said that
the extent of surface through which
the nlr breathed passes Is approximately about 1,1300 Bqunre feet, and the excretion from the lungs dally is over
two pounds of poisonous matter. In
fact, It Is certain that at least one-
third at the waste and poisonous matter caused by the activities of tbe
organism, Its growth, repnlr, decay. Is
excreted through the lungs.
Unfortunately, a great majority of
mankind breathe very superficially,
using only part of this large area of
lung tissue. Even If persons nre out
of floors, unless by wise activity, the
deep cells of the lungs nre not nerated
for the simple reason thnt very few
men or women know how to free the
lungs properly. Rottweiler slates thai
"deep breathing not only ventilates the
lungs and aids the clrctaUtlon, but In
many cases Is nble to strengthen tbe
muscles of tho thorax, especially those
about the upper part of the chest." And
1 believe that we have a right to expect
from respiratory gymnastics a real
strengthening of the resisting force of
nature to disease. Even If the lungs
bave begun to break down, honest effort In this direction will supplement
One of the methods of correct breath
Ing Is to put the hands lightly on the
hips, fingers backward; throw the
shoulders well back, hgld the chest up,
chin In, And then Inhale slowly through
the nose ns long as possible. When
the lungs are tilled, retuln the nlr until
some discomfort is experienced, then,
forming the lips lu the rhape of A letter

slight blowing sound. Such an exer-

body and enrich the quality of the

of the lungs for its purification.
It Is no wonder thnt so much care
bas been given by nature to tbe apparatus for the respiratory function, for
we know perfectly well thnt man bas
lived as much as sixty days without
food, be has been forced to exist for
some time without water; but, alas,
without air death must come In a brief
space of time! I
For Instance, In 1700, 110 persons
were confined over night In a small
space not larger than 5,1)00 cubic feet,
wltb only two little windows on one
side. Within nn hour all broke out In
a profuse sweat. They were tortured
with thirst and difficult breathing, nnd
In three and a half hours tbe majority
were delirious. Then when tbe morning came forty-three only lived to tell
the tale. Another extreme case was nt
tho battle of Austerlltz. Three bun-
tired captured soldiers wero confined
lu a small cellar, and within a few
hours all but forty were dead. The
reas-iu Is self evident. Tbo air was Insufficient for the demands of each In.
dividual, the poisonous exhalations
from lhe body were thrown off through
the lungs, aud n most agonizing dentb
ensued. It behooves us, then, most
carefully to consider la arranging for
the ventilation of homos, hotels, hospitals nnd Jails not only that • proper
(|tiantlly of pure air shall bo allowed
free circulation, but also to be watch,
ltd lest this pure air shall be vitiated
by retained Impurities.
A great many Investigations have
been made to ascertain the relation of
air lo disease, aud perhaps the simple

The Greatest Case in the History of Modern Medicine is Completed by Another
Sworn Statement.
A Prominent Ottawa , Man Confirms Under Oath Every Statement by This Paper in the Original/ Story Published
Nearly Seven Years Ago.
(From the Otta wa Free Press.)
Some seven yearB ago tho Free
IVesa published a graphic account of
a remarkable case hero in Ottawa.
A man pained George II. Kent had
been cured of Bright's Disease after
the doctors had given him up to die,
and the Free Press reporter, after a
most thorough investigation, published t'he whole story in detail, giving credit to Dodd's Kidney Pills for
the most miraculous cure.
TKe following sworn statement was
given by Mr. Kent in order to substantiate the almost incredible statement made by the paper in its account of the case.
(Sworn Statement, Feb. 16th, 1895)
I, George Henry Kent, resident at
114 Camlbri'dge street, Ottawa, and
employed as a printer in the British American Bank Note Printing
Company, hi the said City of Ottawa, do solemnly declare that I
consider it a duty to myself an-d to
my follow men generally to make a
■declaration as lo tho efficiency of
Dodd's Kidney Pills,
1. That I found them, in my terrible case of Bright's Disease, from
Which I suffered for almost one
year, of tho greatest medical value.
1- can say confidently and assure
anyone interested, or a sufferer,
lhat I positively owe my life and
present excellent health to the results brought about by their use. I
was taken sick and confined to iliy
bed on December 28th, 1893, and
was successfully treated for La
Grippe, then Pleurisy, followed by
Kidney Troubles, and latterly
Bright's Disease. I lost the use of
my limbs; my entire body became
swollen to a terrible size, and my
skin became as hard as and similar to leather, the pores all having
closed up, and I suffered the most
agonizing pain. I was subject to
periodical spells of utter prostration and insensibility, to a state of
absolute coma. I was also a victim of dangerous convulsions in
which my facial expression and
other muscles would become severely contorted and tense.
12. My regular physician attended
to me, and, although medical consultations were held over my case
by two city-doctors, nothing could
bo done. My case grew gradually
worse, and latterly I was given up
as hopeless. My wife, friends, and
neighbors were certain from what
they saw ami wore told by the visiting doctors that I would die in a
very short time.
3. My wife was casually reading
a newspaper nbout this timo, and
saw a description of a similar case,
in which a patient gave testimony
of the relief nnd cure that had been
effected on him by Dodd's Kidney
Pills. 1 started to take them right
away, and from the first pill I discovered a change for the better.
After the first box I was wonderfully improved, and at the end of the
fourth I was sure I was to got well
again. I continued taking them until the seventeenth box, and I can
now positively declare that I am
perfectly cured arid able to do a
day's work with any of my comrades in the shop, and Dodd's Kidney Pills undoubtedly cured me, because from starting to take them I
took no other medicine whatever.
AND I make this solemn declaration, conscientiously believing the
sumo to be true, and by virt.no of

Tho Free Press in tho article published In 189'j stated most positively that Dodd's Kidney Pills and nothing else were entitled to the credit
of having saved the dying man's life,
aad this was most emphatically endorsed by Mr. Kent in his sworn
Statement. Tho Free Press also said
without qualification that the cure
of Mr. Kent was an absolute and
permanent one. And while Mr. Kent
could not make a sworn statement as
to tho future, ho stated that he felt
he was permanently cured.
Notwithstanding this there were
many who could not believe that a
man with ono foot in tho grave as
Mr. Kent was could got a lasting
It occurred to the Free Press the
oilier day that it would bo interesting lo entjuiro now, after tho lapse
of nearly seven years, as to how Mr.
Kent was feeling. :
He had removed to 408 Gilmour
Street, and at that address a Free
Press reporter found him.
After reminding Mr. Kent of the article and his affidavit the newspaper
man asked him point blank :-
"Have you lost any time from
your regular work since you were
cured of Bright's Disease by Dodd's
Kidney Pills in 1895 7"
"Not a minute," answered Mr.
Kent, promptly.
"Have you since had the slightest
symptoms of your old kidney trouble
or anything like it ?"   .
"Not tho slightest," he said.
"You aro suro that Dodd's Kidney
Pills   and   nothing else   saved your
life and restored you to your present
good health ?"
"Absolutely sure. Why, my wife
and .1 are so grateful to Dodd's Kidney Pills that we have christened
our little girl, born in December, of
3890, by tho name of 'Dodds.' This
shows you better than anything I
can tell you to what we attribute
my recovery. I owe my life to
Dodd's Kidney Pills."
"Would you bo willing in order to
confirm our story published in 1895
to make another sworn statement?"
asked the scribe.
"If it would do you any good I
have no objections," answered Mr.
Kent. "The Free Press was certainly well within the truth in every
statement they published about my
Mr. Kent, at the request of the
Free Press, has given the following
sworn statement :—
I, GEORGE HENRY KENT, resident at 408 Gilmour Street, in the
City of Ottawa, and employed as a
printer at lhe American Dank
Note Company in the said City of
Ottawa,  do solemnly declare:—
1. That on February KUh, 1895,
I, George Henry Kent, then resident at 114 Cambridge Street, Ottawa, did appear before Charles A.,
Blanche!, Commissioner, etc., and
before him on that date did make
a solemn declaration regarding my
tecovery from Bright's Disease by
the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills and
setting forth tho fucts of my case
and its cure.
2. That in the declaration I set
forth that I believe that I was absolutely and permanently cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills after the doctors had given me up to die.
H, That I am now absolutely
certain that Dodd's Kidney Pills
and nothing else saved my life and
I hereby unhesitatingly reaffirm
every statement made in my declaration made before Mr. Blanchet
on February 16th,   1895.
4. That 1 have never since that
dale had the slightest symptom of
the return of the Bright's Disease
or any kidney trouble having enjoyed unremitting good health and
having worked steadily and without interruption full time at my
regular employment as a printer
every working dny from the day
Dodd's Kidney Pills sent mo back
to work to the date of this declaration.
5. That in evidence of our gratitude to Dodd's Kidney Pills for
having saved my life, my wife and
T havo christened a little daughter
born to us in December of 1896 by
tho name of "Dodds."
6. That I have recommended
Dodd's Kidney Pills to many people in this city and elsewhere who
having heard of my wonderful escape from death by their use have
called on mo or written to me enquiring about them; and having
followed many of these cases closely, 1 know of no case where they
have been used according to directions that has not been cured, and
I Know positively of my own personal knowledge of several extreme
cases where Dodd's Kidney Pills
have effected satisfactory and permanent cures.
And I make the solemn declaration,   conscientiously   believing     it
to be true, and knowing that it is
of iho same force and effect as   if
made under oath and by virtue of
"The Canada Evidence Act, 1893."

as a presentation of the life it undertook to mirror it was rather a piece of
emotional fiction, Infused with the spirit of an able and sincere but only partially Informed partisan, than a cornet

os, shall we say, China Is regarded to
day—as one of the effete peoples, as an
obstacle lu the path of advance and
