Colorado and Southern train from
Gunnison, due here Monday evening,
was caught in a snow slide at the
Alpine tunnel and has been snow
bound ever since. A rotary plow from

Concession to Russia by the
Chinese Gauses Much
Speculation.
Pekin, Jan. 9.���A Chinaman from
Siann Fu, where the court is at present, says that within the city 85,000
Chinese troops are drilling continuously and the majority of them are
armed with modern, rifles. He says
that the feeling of the people there is
bitterly anti-foreign and that they
believe that they can meet the allies
in open fight and defeat them. The
Ministers are considerably astonished
over tbe Chinese grant to Russia of a
concession north of the Pel Ho at Tien
Tsin. It is compared with tbe
British and French concessions com
bined. The grant according to the
Russians was made voluntarily for
services in endeavoring. to bring
about peace. The Ministers think
that the concessions constitutes good
pay when considered in addition to
the annexation of all Manchuria! Li
Hung Chang believes he will receive
tomorrow a favorable answer regarding tbe signing of the agreement.
Senor Cologan, the Spanish Minister,
thinks the negotiations will commence
at Pekin and possibly end in Europe,

Russie's Passengers Still on the Doomed Ship But Prospects Brighter.
Faraman, Bouches Du Rhone, Jan.
10.��� Dawn found the situation of the
stranded steamer Russie unchanged.
The wind blew with terrific violence
all night long but the rain hns ccas-
ed. On the bridge and forecastle of
the steamer some of the crew and passengers can be plainly seen. Tbe first
signal this morning said: "Hasten
or we die of hunger." A few minutes later the following message was
signalled: "We are constructing a
raft, which we will try to launch with
a sail."
Marseilles, Jan. 10.���A message
from Faraman at 9 o'clock this morning says that in spite of the heavy sea
still running, a life boat succeeded
In reaching the French steamer Russie and attached a line to her by
which food could be furnished to tho
103 passengers and crew. Those
aboard had all been cooped up in the
forecastle since Monday evening, when
the vessel stranded. They were famishing. It is felt that the rescue of
the endangered persons is probable
now that communication has been
established.
Qnoenstown, Jan. 10.���The Hamburg American line steamer Fresia,
which was reported off Drowhead last
night, returning with her maohlnery
deranged, arrived here at 8 o'clock
this morning. She has sustained considerable deck damage and had large
holes in both her quarters and considerable water in No. 4 hold. It is feared her cargo is damaged. The Fresia
encountered foul weather when about
000 miles west of the Irish coast and
was in the greatest danger for several
hours. The repairs will likely necessitate   the   Fresia   being docked here.
Marseilles, Jan. 10.���The life line
connected with Russie still holds good
in spite of the tremendous seas running. But it has not been possible
to take off the passengers.        .  .
CLOSING THE PORTS.

closing certain ports in the Southern
Islands in order to prevent more effectually communication between tbe Insurgents.   Tbe port of Ubay  on  Do-
boll Island, has already been ordered
closed as the garrison stationed there
has been withdrawn. The act for
the organization of the metropolitan
police of Manila has been passed by
the Philippine commission. The force
will consist of three companies select
ed from the volunter soldiers.
WHAT HE SAID.
People iu England Want to Know
About che Duke of Norfolk.
New York, Jan. 10.���Different versions nre published of the exact words
which the Duke of Norfolk used in his
address to the Pope on the occasion
of the pilgrimage to Rome on leading
the English Roman Catholics, says
The Tribune's London correspondent.
According to The Express and The
Mail he expressed a wish for the restoration of the Papal temporal power, while Reuter reports that he merely prayed for that position of temporal
independence which the Pope had declared necessary for the fulfillment of
the duties of bis charge. In any case
the reference to the temporal power
is certain to wound the susceptibilities of the Italian press and will not
be liked by Protestant England. The
Duke was a member of tbe British
Government until last year when . he
resigned the office of Postmaster-General to serve as a volunteer with the
British Army in South Africa.
A QUEER  COMBINATION.
Newspaper Man, Doctor, Undertaker

Issued include a newspaper editor, a
medical examiner, an undertaker, and
prizefighter, who a^dted as agent for
the company.

brains with a shot gun. He served
with distinction in tbe civil war and

the First National Bank, was arranged yesterday before Jndge Thomas in

JUST A LITTLE PREMATURE.

William P. Howland has been added
to the list of people who have been
able to read their own obituaries.

PROSPECTS IN
EAST KOOTENAY
Kimberley District Promises
Much During the
Year.
F. M. Bard Tells of Conditions
In Lillooet and Yale
Districts.
Kimberley, D. C, Jan. 9.���With the
new year business has brightened up
considerably and the prospects for the
coming season are excellent throughout the country and especially for
Kimberley, as already great attention
has been drawn towards this locality
on account of the icgular ore shipments during the past year from the
North Star and Sullivan mines. Outside of these two mines little development work has been done, consequently there is a large opening for mining investments. Already a great
numbei of options have been secured
on properties in the immediate vicinity of the town, and as soon as the
necessary negotiations have been concluded, operations will commejce,'
Tributary to Kimberley is the St.
Mary's country, where several companies have been working extensively.
Tbe Pyramid Mining Company are
shortly resuming operations on their
properties in this section and mining
will be carried on to a large extent;
tbeir polloy is not to wait whilst others produce the attraction, but to go
ahead and prepare themselves for the
time when transportation and other
features will be facilitated, when they
will be ready for them. This is surely the best and most straightforward
course to take.
Then there is tbe Skookurochuck
country, which is also tributary to
Kimberley, and from which quarter
some magnificent samples of copper
ore bave been brought Into town. A
great deal of work has lately been
done on the Carbonate King and Carbonate Queen situate on this cieek,
where a tunnel 70 feet long has been
driven across the lead at a little
depth in order to discover the width
of the same. Now that it has been ascertained, sinking will be commenced.
This part of the camp will receive
a great deal of attention this coming
season, as up to the present time only
the most easily accessible spots have
been looked at, and these not thoroughly.
The Sullivan mine stopped shipping
for two days during last week on account of the supply pipe for the boiler
being frozen up. The ore shipments
naturally ceased for that time but are
now being made as regularly as usual,
and with Increased vigor, as a result
of this temporary shut down, only 24B
tons were shipped during the  week.
The North Star mine 1b working
a strong force of men under ground
at development work, but no shipments are being made for reasons
mentioned in   last week's issue.
Work is still going on up the creek
on the properties of the Mount Sick;'
ler & Dritlsh Columbia Development
Co.
Charles Thelss of Spokane, who
took the bond on the Deun und All-
over properties has succeeded In obtaining a further extension of thirty
days on the same.
���   *   ���
Mr. T. M. Dard has just returned to
Nelson from Lillooet, Yalo District,
where for the past year he has been
engaged with the Anderson Lake
Mining and Milling company. During
his stay there he was engaged in
erecting a 10-stamp mill and tramway
at the McGlllivary mine situated on
MoGillivary Creek, about 98 miles
from Lillooet. During his travels
through that district he has become
convinced that It Is one of the leading
mining districts of British Columbia.
The McGlllivary property consists of
fonr claims the locaters being the
Drett Bros., and Mr. John Marshall of
Lillooet who with others, 1b heavily
interested in the property. It is gold
quartz proposition and the mill returns give about 810 per ton. The
main ledge, for here are several which
have been discovered, averages about
10 feet in width and is well defined.
The property Is well developed, there
being three tunnels driven on the various ledges. The longest tunnel is
in about 500 feet rnd is in n good body
of ore all the way. Considerable cross-
cutting has been done, and upraises
made. An immense mass of ore is already blocked out and this will supply
the mill for a long time to come.
.Since the mine has become a producer
the best of results have been obtained and but few days ago the company
decided to erect an additional 10-
stnraps. This should If the mine runs
stendily, give a dally output of 5U
tons, of gross returns amounting to
8500 per day.
There are a number of prospects on
the same mineial belt the work upon
which is of late being pushed rapidly
and all have an exceedingly bright
out look for the coming season.
Situated about 13 miles from Lillooet on Cayoose Creek is the ample
mine operated by an eastern Canadian
Company managed by Col. Reeves
of Lillooet. Under his management
tho mine has advanced rapidly to the
front and is now one of the leading
properties of Yale district. About
three months ago a cyanide plant costing $175,000 was completed, and has
been running steadily since that time.
The capacity of the mill is about 75
toOB per day of 24 hours. It Is a silver and gold piopositlon and the mill
returns gi ?e an average of about 835
per ton. Tbe group consists of fonr
claims and the development has been
carried on so steadily that a large
body of ore is now blocked out. About
30 men are engaged on the working
of the mine. On this same creek
many other claims have been staked
and in what little development that
they have undergone the indications
are that they will make good paying
properties.
During Mr. Dard's residence In
that district he visited Bridge River
district which is situated about 05
miles north of Lillooet. In this district there are a number of good
mines. Until last fall few of the
properties have been working rasters
which is an exceedingly slow mining
process, but notwithstanding this fact,
the owners received good returns.
Since then Mr. Leslie Hill of Vancouver, has purchased the Woodchuck und
Lome two of the leading properties of
tbat district. Since Mr. Hill has had
control of the property the development has been enrried on vigorously
by the running of threo tunnels, and
fairly good discoveries have been
made. A stamp mill has been ordered
and is now on the way to the property. The ore is of a high grade giving good returns in gold values.
The Alhambra which is situated
near by and which was formerly owned by Messrs. Glenn and Richardson,
has just been bonded by a Chicago
Company and during the recent rapid
development hus shown up well. A
stamp mill has nlso been ordered for
this property and will bo erected ai
once. In the same locality is the
Forty Thieves group operated by
Messrs. John Marshall and Robert
Skimmer of Vancouver, considerable
development has bocn done on the
property nnd at present a large body
of high grade ore is in sight. It is the
intention of the owners to erect a
stamp mill during the coming season.
In this rapidly advancing mining
district the town of Lillooet is enjoying tho best of prosperity. It Is the
distributing centre for that district
and is growing rapidly. Tbe population is about 1,800 nnd will undoubtedly soon reach the 2,000 mark.

NEW INDUSTRY
OPENING UP
Iron Mining Near Nelson to
Assume Important
Dimensions.
Hall Mines Smelter Will Get
Iron Ore from Slocan
Junction.
The first Iron mine to be actively
worked in this part of the country Is
the Iron Coon, situated at Sloean
Junction and owned by John Devlin,
(the "Gunner") and W. F.Teetzel, of
Nelson. Arrangements have been
completed with the local smelter to
take the ore from this group. The
smelter uses a hundred tons of Iron
a week for fluxing purposes and at
present it has to be brought frosa
Kamloops. There is considerable iroa
in the country but it is so far from
transportation that it does not pay to
ship it. The Iron Coon has the advantage of being situated within one
hundred yards of the C. P. R. siding
at Slocan Junction. The iron deposit
is very large, there being acres of it,
and enough ore to supply the smelters of the country for a great length
of time. Tbe ore is 68 per cent. Iron
and less than A per cent silica and
contains no other impurities, making
it most valuable for smelter purposes.
It could also be used for the manufacture of the finest steel and as then
is unexcelled water power very near
tho property it is not too much to expect to see rolling mills situated near
the mine to turn out all the iron and
steel needed in the country. Six man
are now at work and this force will
be increased. Several calroads of ore
will be shipped to the smelter tomorrow.
Mr. W. II. Dullock-Wcbstor and
Constable Wilson, loft this morning
for New York and will return with
Fred Yuengling who is wanted here
on tbe charge of embezzlement.
COOKED HIS GOOSE.
Peddler Tried to Sell a Cooker to J.
K.Strachan With Disastrous Results.
Mr. M. M. Lemon has violated the
Trades and License Dylaw of the City
of Nelson and as a result he was
brought before Magistrate Crease at
the Police Court this morning. Mr.
Lemon came to Nelson a few days ago
and as agent for an American Company with headquarters at Buffalo
and was canvassing the City far orders
for "The Peerless Steam Cooker."
The way he came to be entangled
with the law is peculiar. During the
past three days he worked without
being molested in the least way. Last
evening he happened to call at the
residence of City Clerk Strachan and
here is where he got into tumble.
Many questions were put to the agent
by Mr. Strachan who is ever looking
after the best interests of the City,
und this morning Chief Jarvis was
notified and Mr. Lemon was at once
summoned to appear at court. The
case lasted during tbe entire morning
and at the close Mr. Lemon was ordered to pay his license which
amouvts to 850 and 810 and costs.
Late this afternoon Mr. Lemon had
not paid his 8H0,and just what will be
done with the case has not been decided. Mr. Strachan did not buy a
Peerless Cooker.

We   are  glad to  see   The   Victoria
Times has   the good sense to   approve
of the suggestion that   tbe* Board   of
Trade  of   that  city should  assume a
less pretentious appellation   than   the
one by which it is at   present   distinguished.    Its judgments   in respect to
most questions of a public or political
character are   so   hopelessly depraved
and befogged that one almost despaired of   its taking a   rational   view   of
anything.    We see,   however, that   it
has its moments  of   healthy   sanity,
and by making good use of them there
is   hope   that it may yet attain   to   a
condition of  passable reasonableness.
A  Board  of  Trade whose   operations
and   influence     and   usefulness    are
confined to Victoria   has   no right   to
call itself the Dritish Columbia Doard
of   Trade.    Those   other  bodies   that
have suggested  that it would only be
proper modesty on its part to   assume
a same in harmony with its character
and opportunites showed  a right  appreciation of   the   fitness   of  things;
when they asked it   to drop a pretension that embraced   the   entire Province, in contempt of   the rights, privileges, aud dignity of other Boards of
Trade, they merely gave expression to
that   spirit   which   all self-respecting
bodies are supposed to possess.    There
is no such thing, and there  can be no
such   thing, as  a    British  Columbia
Board of Trade,   and if there  cannot
be in reality there ought not to be  in
���ame.

My platform is:
First���Keep the water and electric

NOTICE.
Mr. Hay was United States Ambas-'
sador In London before he was  Secretary of State la Washington.    As Secretary   of   State   he   negotiated  the
treaty   in   regard   to   the   Nicaragua
canal, and since its   rejection by   the
Senate    some   American   newspapers
and politicians charge tbat Mr. Hay's
association  with the English has impaired his loyalty.   It is   the old cry.
Neither Mr. Lowell   nor Mr. Bayard,
nor any other decent American whose
official   position   brought  him    into
close    contact   with    the  governing
mlndB in London, has escaped this imputation. Poor Mr. Hayard, one of the
truest  of  Americans   and one of  the
best of men,   was  hounded   to  death
because he saw much   in   English life
to commend and   admire and imitate.
The present Ambassador,   Mr. Cboate,
was   offiicted   with   Anglophobia   before his appointment; his   few   years'
residence   in   London   has opened his
eyes to tho fact that   the   English are
not tyrants, and   already  he has said
enough pleasant things of them to ensure tbe dislike of the American commonalty on   his   return.    If   it   were
possible  to  mako every Amirlcan the
Ambassador  to   London,   the occupation   of   tail-twisters   would soon  be
reckoned among the lost arts.
The Nelson Board of Trade would
have little to gain by following the
suggestion of tbe Vancouver Board of
Trade, looking to a union of all tbe
Boards in the Province. Already we
have the Associated Boards of Southern British Columbia and we have
seen the groat good tbey can accom-,
plish, as several of their resolutions,
passed at the general meeting berc,
aro now the laws of the land or the
regulations of the different departments which they affected. In the
work which belongs to Boards of
Trade we Have uothlng in common
with the Coast cities, and there is
nothing to gala by trying to extend
the work all over the Provlncj, to tho
possible detriment of the districts in
which we are cbleily interested.
ANNOUNCEMENT.
To the Electors of the WeBt Ward:
In consenting to become a candidate
for alderman in this ward at the request of a number of friends, I can
only promise that, if elected, I will
do my utmost to advance the City's
best interests as I understand them,

PLAYHOUSE IN A TREE.
A Jolly Place For Children on a

tht above quaint summer house la th*
���art ot Dr. W. J. Cree of that city. The
house la located in an ancient and sturdy
apple tree of goodly dimensions. About

fcrent directions. Tbis fact has beon
taken advantage of, and there has been
built In tbe space between the branches a
platform of comfortable size, surrounded
by a railing and reached by a flight of
steps. There is ample room for naif a
dozen persons to sit comfortably within
the Inclosni'c, and a number of chairs are
kept there constantly. The little summer
house Is well shaded by the leaves of the
fine old tree, and there is nearly always a
breeze stirring th* branches. It Is a
splendid place for the children to play,
and In summer It Is used a great deal by
the grown folks. When the artist passed
there the other day, a smart little fox
terrier had monopolized one of the chairs
and was making himself strictly at home,
looking down with contempt at the ordinary people on the walks outside the
ferd.

A small girl, 8 years old, went to a children's party the other afternoon. After
she had returned home she said to her
brother:
'������������ *"At the party a little girl fell through
a chair to the floor.    The other girls
laughed.   I didn't."
"Well, why didn't you laugh?"
"'Cause   I   was   the   one   that   fell

Last evening was the coldest night
experienced in Nelson this winter.
The temperature dropped to two degrees below zero. The cold spell has
caused the lake to freeze considerably
and now only a narrow passage at
midstream is free from ice. The tem-
. eratnre in the vicinity of the Arrow
Lakes has gone down to nearly eight
degrees below zero. The ice there
is interfering considerably with navigation but in Lake Kootenay it is
very thin and docs no harm.

SUCCESSFUL   CARNIVAL.
NAILED THE CHAP.
Her Father in the same Mind.
"I never thought for one moment
that coffee was the cause of my worn
out feeling and dull headaches and en-
energy all gone until I began to notice that my bad feelings came on
every morning after drinking coffee
for breakfast, no matter how well I
felt  when I got up.
"I began to think the subject over
and finnlly decided to try Postum
Food Coffee in place of common
coffoc and see if it was coffee that
had been linrting me. After making
the change, I discovered, to my delight, that the headache and worn
out feeling did not come after breakfast.
"After a very thorough trial I aro
fully convinced that coffee was the
cause of my trouble, and that leaving
it off and using Postum Food Coffee
has restored me to henlth.
"My father, who has had very poor
health for several yoars, quit coffee
some time ago and began using Postum in place of It. It would surprise
anyone to see how much ho has im
proved.

Masquernders Make Merry at
Skating Rink Last Night.
Ice carnivals in Nelson possess
great virtue of not being over done,
so when one is given it is pretty sure
to be a success. Such was the case
last night when the Library Associa
tion fathered a moat successfuly masquerade at the rink. The ladies
charge of it were very energetic as
the large numbers present will attest.
There were nearly one hundred men
and women, boys and girls in costume
and everything from angels to hod
carriers were represented. The ice
was splendid and the R. M. R. band
played short tunes and rested a long
time up till 10:30 when "God Save
the Queen," intimated that the
affair   was over   but it took
BOARD OF TRADE OFFICERS.
Nominations   Made   Last   Night  But
Left Open For a Week.
Considerable business of importance
wsb discussed and nomination of

the board rooms last evening. It was
decided to hold a special meeting

A notice of motion to amend the

It was "That all wholesale and
retail business firms shall be eligible
for membership under the firm name
or title, and any firm so elected shall
have the right to name two of its
members or staff as members of the
board, but shall ODly be entitled to
be represented at any meeting of the
of the board by one representative,
and shall only be entitled to one
vote." A notice of motion to change
the night Of meeting from Wednesday
to Thursday was also given. A communication from the Vancouver
Board of Trade asking for the union
of the Boards of Trade of the Province
was read but the matter did not meet
with favor.
CRIMINAL  LBIEL.
Hugh Graham, of Montreal Star, Says
Things and Must Answer For It.
Montreal, Jan. 10.���Hugh Graham,
proprietor of The Star, was summoned to appear in court today on the
charge of criminal libel brought
against him by Col. John P. Cooke,
for publication in The Star of an article charging Cooke with insubordination in connection with the calling
out his regiment, let Prince of Wales,
for parade duty in connection with
the Valleyfield riots. It will be remembered Cooke refused to call the
regiment out at the instance of Col.
Cole, acting D, O. C., in the absence
of Col. Roy, unless the members were
guaarnteed their pay. The matter
was referred to Major General
O'Grady-Haley but was thought to
have been dropped, it being stated at
Ottawa that it was only a row between two colonels, etc., but a few
days ago The Star published what
turned out to be a private letter from
Major General   O'Grady   Haley  criti-
Uing Col. Cooke. It appears that
only one side of the letter, however,
was published. The other part, referring to Col. Cole, was suppressed,
nenoe Cooke's action.

SOME GOOD IDEAS.
"Nimrod" Offers   Suggestions  Looking to the Preservation of Deer.
To the Editor:
Sir,���A correspondent   from the Arrow Lakes drew   attention   lately   in
another I your esteemed columns to the wanton
half hour to persuade some people that
it really was. The gallery and walks
beside the ice were filled with spectators and the Bo6sland-Nclson curling
games in progress on the ourling ice
made the rink the lieveliest and
brightest spot in the Kootenays last
night. About a quarter of an hour
before they were supposed to, those
spectators who had their skates along
with them joined the band of mas-
queraders and for the rest of the evening the Ice was filled. Up in the
oorner of the gallery John Spear dealt
out hot coffee and ham sandwiches.
There were many very good costumes and the judges, Mrs. H. Bird
and Messrs. Frank Fletcher and Jacob Dover, had considerable difficulty
in awarding the prize in the different
classes. At last this disposition was
made: Best costume for gentlemen,
Fred Burnett, as Curtainus, the Moor;
best costume for ladies, Miss McMillan as Moonlight; best costume for
Doys, Fred Perry, Highland chief;
best costume for girls. Miss Hatch;
gentleman's comic costume, Joe Cur-
ran, clown; lady's comic costume,
Charles Reiley ; boy's comic costume,
Frank G. Graham; girl's comic costume, Mrs. W. Wilson. The judges
were a little perplexed about the most
comic lady's costume as it happened
to be worn by a man, but merit triumphed and tbe man got it. Miss
Poppy Macdonald, as an Indian
Princess, was splendidly costumed and
Miss Luke looked well as "The Daily
Miner." Mrs. C. E. Miller, bb a
"Rough Rider" had an attractive
oostume as did also Miss Lennox.
W. G. McMorrls caricatured Kootenay 'a fast mail service in the form of
a prospector carrying a mail pnok on
bis shoulders. lie and Harry Mills
represented the prospectors to the
life. There were tbe usual number of
oomioal costumes and blackened faces,
fierce looking gentlemen with huge
guns, and eatranoing girls in garbe of
other ages and all tho rest of it that
goes to make up a successful carnival.
The Library will probably be en-
riehed to the extant of a hundred dollars as a result.
SHELDON'S NEW BOOK.
A new book by Charles M. Sheldon
the famous author of "In His Steps,'
never fails to excite the interest of
thousands of readers. "Born to Serve"
is the title of the latest book by Mr.
Sheldon, and the advanced'sheets indicate a very strong book indeed, one
of thrilling interest to the thoughtful
reader, one in which with a master's
hand many of the cankers of social
life, of domestic unhapplnesB of the
broader woman problem, of social reform at the vitals of society���are laid
bare,    with      graphic,     unflinching
slaughter of deer in his district. Let
us hope the authorities will send a
constable now and again, but a local
association for the proteotioa of game
could also do much good. Members
of suoh a sooiety should of course be
pledged to respect the game laws themselves, and where friendly warning is
unheeded, to lodge information
against breakers of the law. In tbe
smaller mining towns and scattered
settlements of the Kootenays the Game
Act will be disregarded in spite of
the police, until good sportsmen unite
in every district to show a bold front
of the "gamebagB." With the heavy
snowfall in winter deer in the Kootenays aro much more at the mercy ot
the hunter than on the Coast and in
the opinion of many it is high time
venison wae shut out of the market
entirely for several seasons. Or, let
us have, as an alternative, the close
season east of the Cascades begin 1st
ot Decern oor instead of 1st January in
each season. As on the Arrow Lakes,
so also here on the Fend d'Oreille
River at one time large herds of deer
wintered. Old timers tell of their being slaughtered for their bides, or for
the mere sake of shooting, or perhaps
seevral deer were killed until one fat
enough to take home was seemed 1
And now these same old timers have
to go many a time hungry for a bit
of "deer meat I"

OBINETAL IMMIGRATION.
Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 10.���In re
gard to a dispatch from Ottawa saying
that a clash may ensue between the
Dominion and Provincial Governments
over the recent act of the Provincial
Legislature enacting regulations
against Oriental immigrants similar
to those in the Natal legislation on a
similar subject, it is not generally
held here that the act will apply to
Chinese but only to Japanese as the
Dominion Parliament has legislated
in regard to the former by the capitation tax which it is considered precludes Provincial action.
DEATH DUE TO CIGARETTES.
Harry Hubbard, a young man of
10 years, died at his home at Steven

cigarettes. He was taken with cramps
arid spasms "the day before and suffered terribly for several hours.
THE T,ALK OF THE TOWN.
The talk of the day in Monteal is
tbe opening of the magnificent new
building erected on the best site of
the principal street by The Family
Herald and Weekly Star. The Family
Herald's contemporaries are paying
it the highest compliments. The new
building is said to be the finest news
paper building in the world. This is
saying a good deal for Canada. The
Family Herald and Weekly Star has
made gigantic strides.
GOOD ADVICE.
The most miserable beings, in the
world are those suffering from Dys
pepBia and Liver Complaint. More
than seventy-five per cent, of the peo
pie in the Dominion are afflicted
with these two diseases and their
effects; such a Sour Stomach, Sick
Headache, Habitual Costiveness, Pal
pitation of the Heart, Heart-burn,
Waterbrash, Gnawing Pains at the
Pit of Stomach, Yellow Skin, Coated
Tongue and Disagreeable Taste in
the Mouth, Coming up of Food After
Eating, Low SpiritB, etc. Go to your
Druggist and get a bottle of August
