Circular Letter
By the  City, Stating    Why  Some
Improvements Can Not Be Done.
——    a ■ i*a i a i
The following is a copy of printed
oircuhirs which have been dlstrlbutrd
during this week throughout the city.
To Whom It May Concern :
Owing to the refusal of the newspapers to accept auy advertizing mntter
from tho Oity, the Council will be unable to undertake any improvement in
the way of cement walks or block-
paving this year.
The Act under which the improvements are made requires the Oity to
advertise in two City papers.
The Mt. Pleasant Advocate Is the
only City newspaper which will advertize the necessary by-laws.
Every dally paper in Vancouver hns
been offered the advertizing at standard
rales, bnt they all refused. Hence the
work oan not be legally accomplished.

M. Ilaspard Roussillon wns looked
upon ns the aristocrat par excellence of
Vlncennes, notwithstanding the fact
thnt His name bore no suggestion of noble aid tilled ancestry. He was rich
and In a measure educated; moreover,
the RBceessful man's patent of leader

but invariably with the excellent result 'thut the man, white or Indian,

nnd a kindly liberality he bad greatly
endeared himself to the people, so that
in the absence of a military commander be came naturally to be regurded as
tlie chief of _the towgj.m'sleu' le malre.
He returned from his extended trading expedition about tbe mldifle o'f
July, bringing, as was his Invariable
rule, a gift for Alice. This time it wns

a hole in the center through - wiilcb a

an old heathen who would sell bis soul

lnfof-Ued. me that' whoever wore It

Alice kissed M. Roussillon.
"t$a so curious and benujriiiil." she
said, holding it'tip and drawing the
vnrjj_ated string through her lingers.
Then with her mischievous laugh she
added: "And I'm glad it Is so powerful

days In France while he was a sliiilent
whose parents fondly expected hlin to

besides, he had saturated himself all

to Gaspard Rousslllon's face with dilating eyes In whleh burned that ri-h and

'stream of words wltb n  thirst which

and the admiring Involuntary absorption thnt possessed bis wife.   The eou-

the arrival of Father Beret put an end
' to lt all.
. The priest, bearing of Jl. Rousslllon's
return, hud come to inquire about some
friends   living  at   Detroit.     He  took
luncheon with the family, enjoying the
downright refreshing collation of broiled birds, onions, meal cakes and claret,
ending with a dish of blackberries and
M. Rousslilon seized the first opportunity to resume Ills successful romancing and presently In tbo midst of tbe
meal began to tell Father Beret about
what be had seen in Quebec.
"By the way," fce said, with expansive easuulness in his voice, "I called
upon your old time friend and coadjutor, Father Sebastian, while up
there. A uoble old man. He sent you

dear Father Beret, ivas what he murmured In my ear when we Were parting. He says Hurt he will never leave
Quebec until he goes to his home
The way In which M. Rousslilon
closed bis little speech, his large eyes
upturned, bis huge hands clasped in
front of him, was very eifectlve.
"1 am under many obligations, my
son," said Father Beret, "for what you
tell inc. It was good of you to remember my dear old friend and go to him
for his loving messages to nie. I am
very, very thankful, Help me to another drop of wine, please."
Now the extraordinary feature of the
situation was Unit Fullier Beret hud

"Ah, yes," M. Kousslilon continued,
pouring the claret with one hand and
making a pious gesture wilh the otber.
"Thu dear old man loves you and prays
for you. Ills voice quavers whenever
be speaks of you."
"Doubtless he mnde bis old Joke to
.ion about the birthmark on my shoulder," suid Father Beret after a moment of apparently thoughtful silence.
"He may have said something about tt
In a playful wny. eh?"
"True, true; why, yes, he surely mentioned the snme." assented M. Roussillon, his fnce assuming nn expression
of confused memory, "It was something sly nnd lnimoioiis. 1 mind, but lt
Just escapes my recollection. A right
Jolly old boy Is Father Sebastian. Iu-
deid very amusing at times."
"At times, yes," said Father Beret,
who had no birthmark on bis shoulder
and bad never had one there or on any
other part of Ills person.
"How strange!" Alice remarked. "I,
too, have a mnrk on my shoulder—a
pink spot, just like u small, five petal "d
flower. We must be of kiu to each
other. Fullier Beret."
The priest laughed.
"If our marks tire alike, thnt would
be some evidence of kinship." be said.
"But what shape Is yours, falher?"
"I've never seen It," lie respouded.
"Never seen lt!   Why?"
"Well, It's ab.iolu.ely Invisible." nnd
he chuckled heartily, meantime glancing shrewdly at il. Roussillon out of
the tail,of his eye. ,
"It's on the back of his shoulder,"
quickly spoke qp M. Itousslllon. "and
you know priests never use looking
glasses. Tbe mark ls quite Invisible
therefore so far as Father Beret is concerned!"
"You never told me of your birthmark before, my daughter," said Father Beret, turning to Alice with sudden interest. "It may some day be
good fortune to you."
"Why so, father?" ,
"If your family name ls really Tnrle-
toii. ns you suppose from the Inscription on your locket, the birthmark, be-
in'.' of such singular shape, would prini-
nbly identify yon. It is snid thnt th "se
marks run regularly in families. With
the ^mfnlature (fuel the distinguishing
liii'thninrk you bave enough to make a
strong'case should you once find the
right Tniieton family."
"You' talk ns they write In novels,"
said Alice. "I've read about Just such
thliigatln (hem. Wouldn't It bo grand
if 1 should turn out to be some great
personage lu disguise!"
The mention of novels reminded
Fatliev Beret of (bat terrible boot-
ivhlclr-he last saw In Alice's possession:
iiiil In1 could not refrain from ine-.i-
io'iing It In n voice thnt shniM-red.
"Rest o;iiy. Falher Beret," said Alice.
'" i l« "" !>'"l I bave found wholly distasteful to me. I tried to rend It,
but could not do It. I flung It aside
in utter disgust. Vou and Molher
Roussillon hie welcome to bide It deep
as a well for all I eare. I dou't enjoy
reading about low, vile people mid
hopeless unfortunates. I like sweet
and lovely heroines und strong, high
sonled, brave heroes."
"Read about the blessed saints, then,
my daughter. You will find In them
the true heroes and heroines of this
world," said Father Beret.
M. Roussillon changed the subject,
for he always somehow dreaded to
have the good priest fall into the strain
of argument be wus about to begin. A
stray sheep, no matter how refractory,
feels a touch of longing when it hears
the shepherd's voice. M. Roussillon
was a Catholic, but a straying one. and
he had promised the dying woman
who gave Alice to him that the child
should be left as she was, a Protestant,
without undue influence to change her
from the faith of her parents This
promise he had kept with stubborn persistence, and he meant to keep it as
long as he lived.
A few weeks had passed nfter M.
Roussillon's return when that big
hearted man took it Into bis head to
celebrate his successful trading, ventures wltb a moonlight dance given
without reserve to all the Inhaoltnnts
ef Vlncennes. It was certainly a democratic function that he contemplated,
aud motley to a most picturesque extent.
Rene de Ronville called upon Alice a
dny or two previous to the occasion
and duly eugaged her ns his partennlre,
but sbe Insisted upon having the engagement guarded In her behalf by a
condition so obviously fanciful that he
accepted It without argument.
"If my wandering knight should arrive during the dunce, you promise to
stand aside nud give place to him,"
sbe stipulated. "You promise that?
You see, I'm expecting hlin all the
time. I dreamed last nlgbt thnt he
enme on n great bny horse and, stooping, whirled me up behind tbe saddle
autl nway we went!"
There wns a childish, half bantering
air In her look, but her voice sounded
earnest and serious, notwithstanding
its delicious timbre of suppressed playfulness.
"You promise me?" she Insisted.
"Oh, I promise to slink away into a
corner nnd chew my thumb the moment he conies!" Rene eagerly assented. "Of course I'm tnkingji great risk,
I know, for lords and barons nnd
knights are very apt to appear suddenly In n place like this."
"You may banter and make light If
you want to," she suid,- pouting admirably. "I don't care. All the same,
the laugh will jump to the other corner
of yonr mouth; see if It doesn't. Tliey
sny thnt what a person dreams about
nnd wishes for and waits for and believes In will come true sooner or
"If that's so," snid Rene, "you and I
will get mnrried, for I've dreamed It
every night of the year, wished for It,
waited for It and believed In It, aud"—
"A very pretty twist you give to my
words, I must declare," sbe said, "but
not new b.v any menus. I.iltle Adrlcnne
Bottrcier could tell you thnt: She sny*
that you hnve vowed to her over and
over that you dream about her and
wish for her and wait for ber, precisely
as you have just Bnid to mo."
Rene's brown face flushed to the temples, partly with anger, partly with the
shock of mingled surprise aud fenr.
He was guilty, and the guilt showed
lu his eyes and paralyzed bis tongue,
so that he sat there before Alice with
his under jaw sagging ludicrously,
"Don't you rulber think, M. Rene
de Ronville," sbe presently added In a
calm, advisory tone, "tbat you bad
better quit trying to say such foolish
things to mc und Just be my very good
friend? If you don't I do, which comes
to the snme thing. What's more, I
won't be your partennlre at the dance
unless you promise mc on your word
of honor thnt you will dance two
dances with Adrienne to every one
that you have with mc. Do you promise?"
He dnred not oppose her outwardly,
although in bis heart resistance
amounted to furious revolt and riot
"I promise anything you ask me to,"
he said resignedly, almost sullenly.
"Anything for you."
"Well. I ask nothing whntever en
my own account," Alice quickly replied,
I "but I do tell yon firmly thnt you shnll

' Like n singed and crippled moth vainly trying to rise once uguin to the alluring yet deadly flame, Keue de Ronville essayed to break out of his embarrassment nnd resume equal footing
with the girl so suddenly become his
commiindlng superior, but the effort
disclosed to him as well as to her thnt
he hnd fallen to rise no more. In his
abject defeat he uecepted the terms
dictated by Alice and was glad when
sbe adroitly changed her manner and
tone iu going on to discuss the ap
proaching dance.
"Npw, let me make one request of
you," he demanded after awhile.   "It's
n smnll favor.   Mny. I ask It?"
"Yes, but I don't grant il In advance."
"I wnnt you to WBhr, for niy sake, Ibe
buff gown which they say was your
"No, I won't wear lt."
"Hut why, Alice?"
"None of the other girls have anything
like suck n dress. It would not be right
for me to put It on nnd make them all
feel that I hnd taken tbe advantage of
them, just because I could. That's
"But, then, none of them ls bennttfnl
nnd educated like yon," he snld. "You'H
outshine them anywny."
"Save your compliments for poor
pretty little Adrienne," she.firmly responded. "I positively do not wish to
hear tbem. I lyive agreed to be your
partennlre nt this dance of Papa Rousslllon's, but it Is understood between us
thut Adrienne Is your sweetheart. I
am not, and I'm not going to be either.
So for your sake and Ailrienno's, ns
well as out of eonsldeniiioii for the rest
of the girls who. have ii" line dresses. I
am not,going to wear the huff brocade
gown that belonged to I'npa Roussillon's mother long ago. I shall dress
Just ns-tho rest do."
It Is safe to say that Rene de Ronville went home with a troublesome bee
in his bonnet. He was not a had hearted fellow. Many a right good young
mnn before hlin and since has loved nn
Adrienne nnd been dazzled by nn Alice.
A violet is sweet, but a rose is the garden's queeu. The poor youthful frontiersman ought to have been stronger,
but he was not, and whnt hnve we to
say ?
The dance did not eome olT. .It had
to be postponed indefinitely on account
of a grave change In the political relations of tbe little post- A day or two
before the time set for that function
a rumor ran through the town that
something of Importance was nbout to
happen. Father Glbault, at the head
of a smnll party, bud arrived from
Knsknskin. far away on tbe Mississippi,
with the news that France and the-
Aiuerlcnn colonies had made common
cause ngninst the English In tbe great
war of which the people of Vinceuues
neither knew the cause uor cared a
straw about the outcome..
It wns Oncle Jazon who came to the
Roussillon place to tell SI. Roussillon
that he was wanted at the river house.
Alice met bim at the door.
"Come in, Oucle Jazon," she cheerily
said. "You nre getting to be a stranger
at onr house lately. Come In. What
news do you bring? Tnke off your cap
aud rest your hair, Oncle Jazon."
The scalpless old fighter chuckled
raucously and bowed to the best of bis
ability. He not only took off his queer
cap, but looked Into it witb a startled
gaze, as If be expected something infinitely dangerous to jump but and
seize bis nose.
"A thousand thanks, in'am'selle," he
presently said. "Will ye please tejl
M'sieu' Roussillon that I would wish
to see 'I m?"
"Yes, Oncle Jnzori; but first be seated
and let mc offer you just a drop of cau
de vie, some that Papa Roussillon
brought back with him from Quebec.
He says It's old and fine."
She poured bim n full glass, then,
setting the bottle on n little stand, went
to find M. Roussillon. While sbe was
absent Oncle Jazon improved his opportunity to the fullest extent. At least
three additional glasses of the brandy
went the vrttv of the first He grinned
atrociously and smacked his corrugated lips, but when Gnspard Roussillon
enme In the old man was sitting at
some distance from the bottle nnd
glnss, gazing indifferently out across
tlie veranda. He told bis story curtly.
Father Gibault, be said, had sent him
to'ask M- Kousslilon to come to the
river house, as he had news of great
Importance to communicate.
"Ab, well, Oucle Jazon. we'll have a
nip of brandy together befyre we go,"
snid the host.
"Why, yes, jes' one ng'In' the broilln'
weather," nsseuted Oucle Jazon. "I
don't mind jes' one."
"A very rich friend of mine In Quebec gave me this brandy, Oucle Jazon,"
snld M. Roussillon, pouring the liquor
with a grand flourish, "and I thought
of you ns soon as I got it. Now, Bays
I to myself, If any man knows good
brandy when be tastes it, It's Oncle
Jazon. and I'll give bim a good cbancs

"It surely ls delicious," snld Oncle
Jazon; "very delicious." He spoke
French with a curious accent, having
spent long years with English speaking
frontiersmen in the Curolinas and Kentucky, so thut their lingo hnd become
his own.
As tbey wnlked side by side down ths
wny to the river house they looked like

nnd weather tanned manhood—Oncle

GREAT movements In the affairs
of men nre like tides of the
sens, which reach nnd affect
tbe remotest and quietest
nooks and Inlets, Imparting a thrill
and n swell of the general motion.
Father Glbnult brought tbe wave of
the American Revolution to Vlncennes.
He was a simple missionary, but he
was, besides, a man of great worldly
knowledge and personal force. Colonel
George Rogers Clark made Father
Glbault's acquaintance nt Kaskaskla
when the fort nnd Ils garrison surrendered to his command, nnd, quickly
discerning the flue qimllty of the
priest's character, sont'him to the post
on the Wabash to win over Its people
lo the cause of freedom and Independence. Nor was the tusk assumed a
hard one, ns Father Glbault probably
well knew before he undertook It.
A few of the lending men of Vlncennes, presided over by Gnspard
Kousslilon, held a consultation at the
river house, and It was agreed that a
mass meeting should be called, bringing all of the inhabitants logether in
the church, for the purpose of considering the course to be taken undo*

Falher Beret stood for some minutes ns if duzed, then squeezed the pa.-

came In, and put It in his pocket, A
little later he was kneeling, as We have

fervent prayer, his clasped bands lifted
toward tbe crucifix on the will.
"Jesus, give me strength lo bold on

servant from bitter temptation."
Father Gibault had come prepared
to use Ills eloquence .upon the excitable
Creoles, and with considerable cunning
he addressed a motley audience (it tbe
church, telling tbem that an American

growing purplish above his beard, j-

blue and serene. When she reached
home Uie house was full of people to
whom M. Roussillon, in the gayest of
moods, wus dispensing wine and brandy.

Oncle Jazon ns soon ns he saw her.
And then they all talked nt once, sny-

Roussillon tried to scold as usual, but
the lively chattering of tbe guests

garrison It ourselves.''
"And we will have M, Roussillon for

Glbault.   "Lei us organize fit ouce."
Immediately tbe word was passed

from the crowd, looking on, she had f went tip tbe river, probably to Oulate-

made hnstc to descend. Now that her
Impulsively chosen enterprise wns completed her boldness deserted ber, nnd
she slipped out through a dilapidated
postern  opposite the  crowd.    On  her
before her lay a great flat plain, beyond
which rose some hillocks covered wiUi
forest. The sun biased between masses
of slowly drifting clouds that trailed
creeping fantastic shadows across the
marshy waste.
Alice walked along under cover of the
slight land swell, which then, more
plainly marked than it Is now. formed
the contour line of hummock upon
which the fort nnd village slood. A
wntery swnle grown full of tall aqnulii
weeds meandered .parallel' with Ills
bluff, so to enll It. ami there was a soft.
melancholy whispering of wind uiiuinc

th" iliurch and Father nrr(.t's bnt and
continued for some distance In the direction of thut pretty kuoll upon whleh
tbe cemetery is at present so tastefully
kept. She felt shy now, as lf to ruu
away aud hide would be a great relief.
ludecd, so relaxed were her nerves that
a slight movement lu the grass ond cattail Hags near by startled her painfully,
'making her jump like a fawn,
"Little friend not be 'fraid," said a
guttural voice in broken French. "Lit-
Uo friend not make noise."
At  a  glance  she  recognized  Long
Hair, the Indlun, rising out of the matted mnrsb growth.   It wus a hideous
vision of embodied  cunning, soulless- I
ness and murderous cruelty.

Meantime certain citizens who hsd

out of town, manned  it-bnttenu and

The enormous death rate for January has opened tho eyes of tho people to th. terrible mortality which
accompanies  neglected  colds.
Out of tha 412 deaths. reported In
Toronto for the month, 05 were from
pneumonia, and this is no doubt only
a small proportion oi the duu-hn thut
may be justly attributed to a neglect
to cure colds.
In ths north country colds aro so
common thut the danger involved is
lost sight of, but tho rusults are
none the less fatal.
Tbi prudent way is to use Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Linseed nnd Turpentine at the first appearance
of trouble, and so guard against any
Changs ot serious consequences.
The soothing, healing influence of
this great medicine is a balm to irri-

One of the greatest American millionaires
once said to Ida physician, "A million dollars, Doctor, for a new stomach," and then
the sick 1111111 groaned and turned away.
One of a man's grratest pleasures is that
born of a keen appetite, vigorous digestion
and a good dinner, and this belongs to
many a good fellow who ia living on small
wages, but the licit man without a ntomacU
has to forego the good thiiiga of the table
because his stomach rebels. Without a
healthy stomach and a good digestion, our
blood is thin, watery and poor, our heart
action is weak, our liver does n-it do ils
duty, and man is miserable and unhappy.
In this condition man is prey to the germs
of influenza, consumption, nlnlaria and all
the ills that he is heir to. Consumption
can be treated by natural methods which
are as close to nature as possible.
Dr. R. V. Picrcej chief consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, at Buffalo,,N. Y., years ago un.
deralood this disease, and after a long period of experiment discovered certain roots
and herbs which were nature's remedies,
and succeeded in puliiiur them up in a
form tbat would be easi':y procured aud
ready to use. This he called Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. It gives no
false stimulation because it contains no
alcohol and no narcotic. It helps digestion aad the assimilation of such elements
in the food as are required for the blood.
Instead of a cod liver oil, against which
the already sensitive stomach will declare
open rebellion, this tonic bas a pacifying
action upon the sensitive stomach una
gives to tbe blood the food elements the
tissues require. It maintains the patient's
nutrition by enabling him to eat, retain,
digest and assimilate nutritious food. It
overcomes gastric irritability and., symptoms of Indigestion, and in tliis way fever,
night-sweats, headaches, etc., are done
away with. It fortifies the body against
the germs of consumption, grip aud malaria, and it builds up tbe tissues and puts
nn healthy flesh.
When the druggist says be has some-
hlng that ia "Just as good "as Dr. Pierce's
Gclden Medical Discovery, he says so because he hopes to make a better profit,
but Ills own mixtures have not stood ihc
test of long experience nor had the euccets
thai Dr. Pierce's medicines bave had

Colored shoes havo no plsco except

We thereupon, uinployod three lending
chemists in different cities to make au
nunlysis nf tlio preparation from bottles
bought in the open market. These
analyses, one and all, show to us conclusively that not a single oue of the
ingredients mentioned by us iu the
analysis qnoted—thut is either digitalis,
opium or alcohol—wus contained iu the
bottles analysed. We then—the Prosi-
deut of this Company aud the writer—
personally visited The R. V. Pierce
Medical Company, in Buffalo, aud wore
there convinced that tho officers of the
Compauy wero absolutely truthful iu
their claim that not ono of these injur

has been proved erroneous, tbe deductions mado iu connection with this

Before starting on a shopping tour,

One thing we never sufficiently learn
is the dreadful power of evil to spread.
Of every wicked deed we see only a
part of the consequences and we neglect
the part we do not see. For example,
every crime iu the black belt makes a
thousand Southern women tremble.
A trolley car that mangles a child playing on the streets set a hundred mother-
hearts a quaking. A few "hold-ups''
by footpads will terrorize a whole
suburb, after dark. Often the nnseen
effect is a tendency to modify institutions, to strain and dam ige the structure of society. The embezzling cashier
wrecks his bank, to be sure, but, what
ls more, he raises the rates of fidelity
insurance, aad thus injures every bank
cashier in the country. Every outrage
on non-union labor pours sand en the
axles ot tho labor movement everywhere Moro serious than the loss to
the taxpayers by municipal corruption
is the check it gives to the much-to-be-
desired extension of municipal owner
ship. Every young man and woman
who misbehaves helps to bring in that
kill-joy knowu as the chaperoue. Iu
this way mauy forms pf wrong-doing,
in addition to the immediate suffering
they inflict upon particular persons,
work a far-reaching harm by warping
and deteriorating beneficent institutions
whioh we are all interested in
