CLOSED TO ALL
HUMAN EYES
Ut
King Edward VII. the Last to
Look   Upon   the   Dead
Queen's Features.
A Pathetic and Solemn Scene
at Osborne  House
Yesterday.
Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 20.
���12:45 a.m.���With a pathos and
solemnity such as seldom marks
the passing away from daylight
into darkness, the royal family
yesterday took their last loving
look at the features of the dead
queen. About ten o'clock in the
morning the shell was bruught
into tbe bedroom, where wore
waiting King Edward, Emperor
William, tbe Duke of Connaught, Sir Jas. licit] and the
royal ladies. The latter having
retired, Sir Jas. Reid with reverent hands assisted by three
trusted household servants, in
the presence of the King, the
Emperor and the Duke, removed
the body from the bed to the
coffin. In death it was lovlier
than in the closing days of life.
Not a trace of the ravages of
disease were visible. The servants having retired Queen
Alexandria, the princess and the
children were recalled and with
lingering steps and stilled sous
they passed slowly before the
white robed and peaceful figure.
At tbe foot, never moving, stood
the King, and when the mourning crowd had passed there remained only the Bon and grandson of the Queen. Emperor
William wept even more bitterly than the royal ladies. Finally he also retired and the King
was left alone. Sir .las Reid,
beckoning to the servants, .with .
the coffin lid, asked tbe King's
instructions. For a few seconds
the King stood speechless,stricken witb emotion at the last farewell. Then he said, quickly:
"Close it finally; It must not be
opened again." Thus the remains of England's greatest
ruler were forever closed from
human view. Reverently the
coffin was borne into the dining
room. Officers and men from
the royal yachts took their stand
around the coffin ovei which the
King, Queen and Kaiser gently
laid the robes of tbe Knights of
Garter,plaoing at the head a diamond crown, lieneath lay the
royal ensign, while hanging
about was the Union Jack. At
the altar was the rector of Whip-
plnghain wbo read a portion of
the funeral service in the presence of the royal family. After
the benediction each placed a
wreath upon tbe coffin and all
retired.
A correspondent of the Associated Press iB informed that the
Queen's will has not been opened, and according to present arrangements it will not he opened
until after the funeral. Its details are unknown to the royal
family. There is no truth in the
statement that King Edward
and Emperor William knelt by
the bedside of the Queen and
swore to preserve peace. A significant feature of all the deathbed scenes has been their absolute naturalness and the absence
of false elements. According to
a rumor circulating at Osborne,
X King Edward desires himself
to be styled His Imperial Majesty in order to emphasize the
fact that he is emperor ns well
aa king. Today (Saturday),
the local volunteers and the
forces in the vicinity will pass
through the chapel ardente.
After these will pass the correspondents of the leading papers
of the world. A very remarkable feature of all the proceedings is the intense martial air
which prevuilcs them. The naval parade off Splthead is to be
the greatest, if possible, the
. world ever saw, and the military arrangements at Windsor
will eclipse anything of the
kind ever attempted. Tonight
the Grenadiers are mounting
their silent guard over tbe coffin
with guns reversed,arms crossed
and heads bowed. The silence
is unbroken save by an occasional shuffle from the soldiers
in changing their uneasy positions.

���k London, Jan. 25.--Both houses of
parliament tbis afternoon received
identioal messages ftom tin* King and
voted condolence with his l.iijesty on
his bereavement and congi-tulations
on his accession to the throne. The
Lord Chancellor, Lord Salisbury, and
the speaker Mr. William Cort-Gully
read the message in the respective
houses. It wbb as follows: "Edward
Bex, tbe King, is fully assured that
the Bouse oi Commons will share the
deep sorrow which has befallen hi8
majesty and the ���nation by the lamentable death of his mother, the late
Queen. Her devotion to tbe welfare
of b��r ceuntry and her people a*d her
wie ***0tr|D��j*,���*,' r,1le during the
sixty ,^v.-���.
ever be held
Ul libr<rvS31
in   affectiuuuv-
Ot
bv her loyal and devoted subjects
throughout the dominion of the British Empire."
London, Jan. 25.���In both houses
today the galleries were filled with
notable gatherings of peers and diplomats. In the house of lorus, Lord
Salisbury moved the reply to the
King's message in a Speech full of
emotion, jle said that in performing
the saddest duty that had ever befallen him he was only echoing the sorrow, deeper than he had ever Been, of
the nation, which had been called
forth by the singular loss nnder the
dispensation of Providence they had
suffered, and their admiraton of the
glorious reign and splendid character
of the sovereign they had lost. Being
a constitutional monarch with restricted powers she had reigned by sheer
force of character by the lorableness
of ber disposition and by ber hold on
the hearts of her subjects. The example which she set of governing by
esteem and love would never be forgotten, nor bow much she assisted In
the elevation of ber people hy their
simple contemplation of ber brilliant
qualities as wife, mother,and woman.
Her wonderful power of observing
with absolute strictness the limits of
her powers, aB a constitutional sovereign, at the same time maintaining
steady and persistent influence of tbe
actions of her miniaters inspired the
greatest admiration. She always
maintained a rigorous supervision
over public affairs, giving her ministers the benefit of her advice and
warning them of dangers. No minister could disregard her views, or press
her to disregard them without feel
ing he had incurred a great danger.
She had brought the country peacefully through a great change* ..from-1
old to new England. She possessed
extraordinary knowledge of what people would think. She had always
said that when she knew what the
Queen thought she knew for a certainty what her subjects would
think, especially the middle classes.
Tbe King came to the throne with
the one great advantage of having before him the greatest example possible. He had been familiar for a generation with political and social life.
He enjoyed enoromus popularity and
was almost aB much beloved in foreign countries and courts. Congratulations could be tendeied him with
earnest sincerity and in the belief
that he will adorn the throne and be
no unworthy successor of the Queen.
Lord Kimberley, tbe Liberal leader in the house of lords, and the Archbishop of Canterbury seconded the address.   Tbe house then adjourned.
In the house of commons, Mr. A.
J. Balfour, first lord of the treasury
and government leader, In moving the
addiess in reply to tbe message said
the house iu all its long history had
never met under sadder eircumstances
or with a clearer duty to express the
universal soriow of the world to Edward VII. The sorrow was felt not
only as a nation but also as an irreparable personal loss. Never before
had been tbe national grief so deeply
seated. The end of a great epoch had
come and the cumnlative result of a
great ideal, of the great example of
Queen Victoria, was the greatest the
world had ever seen. Her position
had thrown upon her a lite of continuous labor. Short as had been the interval between her final signature of
a public document and her final rest
it had been enough to clog tbe wheels
of administration as witnessed by tbe
vast mass of untouched documents
awaiting the band of a sovereign. In
moving a double response of condolence and congratulation Mr. Balfour
said they all had unfailing confidence
tbat the great interests committed to
the new sovereign were safe in bis
keeping and they assured him of ungrudging support of his loyal subjects.
Cowes, Jan. 25.���The Imperial German yacht Hohenzolltrn, escorted by
the third class cruiser Nyruphe, waB
signalled during the afternoon at
Dover. The yacht will come to Cowes
and the cruiser will proceed to t'ortB-
mouth. The Marquis ot Lansdowne,
Becretary of state for foreign, affairs,
came to Osborne today by special command of the King. He will be presented to Emperor William.
Cowes, Jan. 25.���A private service
over the remains of Queen Victoria
was  held  this morning,   Tbe coffin
was placed on a crimson dais in tin
centre of the dining room and rested
upon a silk union jack. White satin
pall was over the coffin with the royal
crown and insignia of the order of the
Garter embroideied upon it. Sentinels with arms reversed stood at the
corners.
London, Jan. 26.��� It is virtually
settled that there will be an imposing funeral procession through London, headed by the King, Emperor
William and Lord Roberts. The route
will be nearly the same as that of
Lord Roberts triumphal entry, but reversed. Mr. William St. John Broder-
ick, secretary of state for war, and
Lord Roberts, will go to Osborne today
to Settle the military programme of
the procession and the funeral proceedings at Windsor.

London, Jan. 26.���Cardinal Vaugh-
nn, in the course of a very sympathetic letter to be read in the Catholic churches in England, pays an elegant tribute to Queen Victoria. The
Morning Leader says that the executors of Queen Victoria's will are Princess Beatrice, the Duke of Connaught
and Lieut.-Colonel Sir Fleetwood Is-
ham Edwards, who was keeper of her
majesty's privy purse, from 1895, and
-extra equerry to the Queen from 188!).
London, Jan. 25.���The Globe tbis
morning reviewing American sympathy with Great, Britain, on tbe
death of the Queen, adds: "Referring to the refusal of Mayor Van
Wyck of New York city to lower tbe
flag over the city hall, the solitary
exception of tliis attitude of sympathy
and respect Is to be regarded as a matter of congratulation rather than of
regret. It is a high compliment that
tbe memory of our good and pure
Queen should be unsullied by any recognition on the part of Tammany
Hall and its creatures. " The St. James
Gazette says Mayor Van Wyck, "so
grossly misrepresents the. generous
feeling of Americans as to refuse to
show in New York official respect to
the memory of Queen Victoria, which
his country are everywhere, and by
all means in their power, displaying
to the world."
Ottawa, Jan. 25 ���Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier has received by cable copies of tbe
telegram sent by Lord Strathcona to
King Edward VII. and the reply
thereto. The message of Lord Strathcona to his majesty reads: "As the
representative of the Dominion of
Canada in England it is my mournful
duty to give expressions to the over-
whelmping grief of Canadians on the
death of their beloved Qneen aud to
offer their heartfelt sympathy with
yourself and other members of the
royal family. In Canada and throughout the empire there will be universal
mourning for the loss ot a sovereign
revered and held in affectionate remembrance by her people. May I
be permitted to add my own deepest
sympathy. (Sgd.) Strathcona."
King Edward to Lord Strathcona: "I
am much touched by your kind telegram of sympathy and I ask you to
kindly convey to the inhabitants of
the Dominion of Canada my warm
thanks.    (Sgd).    Edward R."
New York, Jan. 25.���Governor

toast was drunk to President McKinley and Vice-President eleot RooBe-
velt. Justice Clarke then called upon
the diners to drink the toast to,"Thut
good woman, Queen, defender of tbe
faith, Victoria, may she rest in
peace." This waB also drunk.
EMPEROR CONFIRMS IT.

He was born in 1822 and was raised to

The First Thought Group Now
Owned by P. Burns and
His Syndicate.
Sold for a Song Years Ago
and Bought for a Fortune Recently.
.. ������  V*-
Bnld for a song and bought for a
fortune Is a situation which, frequently crops up in the course of the ordinary mining romance and as seldom
occurs In actual life. The exception
proves the rule, however, and tbe
statement applies literally to the
First Thought roup of mineral claims
recently acquiied by the syndicate
consisting of P. Burns, the Calgary
cattle king, Blake Wilson of Nelson,
Bruce White and W. H. Ramsdall,
now in charge of the syndicate's other interests in Mexico. The property
first changed bands for one dollar
and within a few years was turned
over for $50,ooo, while the next Bale,
if a further change in ownership
should eventuate, will probably be at
several times tbe latte figure.
The First Thought property includes
the claim of the same name, tbe Anna, Homestake, Defender and First
Thought fraction. These are located
12 miles west of Hossburg in Washington state, just below Obsidian Bluff
and about a mile and a half from the
old Pierre stage Station. It was staked in 1896 at the time of tbe rnsh attending the opening of the reservation. The locators were "Old; Man"
Shea and John Turk, well known prospectors. In 1898 th(*_first turn was
made nnder novel oircurastances.
Turk and Shea were flat. broke and
had no funds to find out what they
had on their claims and came to the
conclusion that the prospect was too
big to be any good. Hank Gibbons
and J. C. Walker of Hossburg came
into the i section and the prospectors
told them'of the olaims, but said they
were no good. Walker paid Turk a
dollar to show him where tbe ground
wns, and this sum was the actual net
consideration to Shea and Turk for
the claims.
After the new owners took possession the property was inspected by
various experts whose reports apparently differed materially. William
Haskins of the Le Rol turned the
property down, but other engineers'
reports differed, and when the syndicate secured a clear title to tbe group
they were out about 850,000. Litigation followed their purchase but- the
Nelson men fought the case in the
various courts and won bands down,
the last trial judge refusing permission to their opponents to teopen the
matter.
A crew of men is now at work on
the group, and it is freely predicted
that the First Thought will develop
into one of the biggest mining propositions in the district.
*    - ���   ��   ��
Charles Kstinere, a well known resident of Kimberley, is a guest at the
Hotel Phair. He is one of the owners
of thej original Kimberley townsite.
He now has an addition to the town
plotted and is interested in various
mining propositions in and about the
town. Mr. Estmere looks forward to
seeing one of the belt years in the
history of the Kimberley camp. Property is already moving, the latest deal
having been closed yesterday when
the British Columbia Mining and Exploration Syndicate secured a bond on
a number of Kimberley properties.
The oompany's engineer John J. Law-
les on whose report the deal was made
Is well known in Nelson having been
here for several days last fall when
passing through the Kootenays. The
properties included in the bond are
the Jew owned by C. W. Bnrdsal, superintendent at tbe Sullivan mine, J.
S. McBrlde and W. Whines; the Galore
and Emma fraction, owned by E. S
Smith, M. L. A., Langley brothers
and R. L. T. Galbraith, the Hidden
Hand, Myrtle fraction and Last Addition, owned by N. C. McKlnBtry, C.
O. Fallon and P. MoGlogan. These
claims surround the Sullivan on the
north mist and south. The consideration was (22,000 with a small cash
Sayment. The deal was made through
[. A. Wallenger of Kort Steele and
the company pronoaee to start work
when the season Is sufficiently advanced.
DIFFERENT
THIS YEAR
Sweeping Changes Made In
Statutes Governing Criminal Procedure.
Police and Stipendiary Magistrates Vested With Increased Powers.
During 1900 a number of sweeping
changes were made in the statutes
governing tbe criminal procedure, the
effect of which will be noticed as
cases come up to which the amendments apply. Several of the amendments are of considerable interest to
the section of the general public
which desires to keep posted on the
general trend of events. Possibly
the most important from the standpoint of British Columbians is that
which confers upon police and stipendiary magistrates of incorporated
towns and cities the jurisdiction to
try persons committed for trial and
to jail under the warrant of a justice
of the peace for any offence triable
speedily with the consent of the party
charged. In su��h cases the magistrate
may sentence the defendant to tbe
same sentence as he would be liable
to receive from a county judge. The
authority thus conferred upon Police
Magistrate Crease is practically the
same as is vested in Judge Forin.
Some exception has been taken to this
on tbe ground tbat where magistrates
are not practicioners the power conferred by the amendment is too sweeping. It has been reported tbat this is
one of the topics whfch W. A. Galliher, M. P., proposes to have brought
to the attention of-the government
during the approaching session.
At the next assize held in Nelson
one of the charges to be heard will be
that of a capital offence and it is not
unlikely that another execution will
take place in the jail. In this event
it will not be necessary for tbe sheriff
to personally arrange the details, an
amendment to the code providing tout
a sheriff, jailer, medical officer or
surgeon may, under sections 940, 941
and 942, hand over the performance of
bis duties to his lawfully appointed
deputy.
A couple of interesting changes aro
made in the rulea affecting the sittings
of courts. It will now be possible
for a judge of the supreme or county
court to issue warrant for the arrest
of a witness where evidence is given
to show that the witness in question
will refuse to attend court to give his
testimony. Heretofore it has been
possible to arrest a witness who failed to obey a subpoena but the judge
may now take action at any time before trial. Section 729 of the code
provides for the taking of a jury's
verdict on a Sunday, and a clause is
added to this making it legal to take
a verdict on any public holiday.
Heretofore when a certain cluss of
cases have come up for trial an effort
has been made to clear the court by
moral suasion, the law not empowering a judge to order the room cleared
unless the person about to be charged
was under tho age of 16 years. The
age limit is now wiped out, and a
judge bas tbe authority to clear a
court room or place where a person is
being tried for offences against morality or any one of a dozen other
charges.
Additional authority is conferred
upon the police In regard to vagrants
under section 207. Persons found
abroad at night, in cars or unoccupied buildings and unable to give an
account of themselves, may be arrested now, whereas formerly it waB no-
necessary to secure more direct evidence before detention   was   justified.
The statutes on burglary are more
stringent than ever. Hy an amendment to section 410 any person may
now be sentenced to life imprisonment
on conviction for burglary and in addition, to whipping, if on arrest or
while committing the burglary an
offensive weapon is carried.
A person bound over to the assizes
for sn offence triable apecdily may
now take a speedy trial if unable to
find ball or If surrendered by his
sureties. This will enable a number
of defendants to have their cases disposed ot without weuriHomo wails.
Cattle men have additional protection granted them under the amended
code. Section 'i'll regarding the theft
of cattle makes it an indictable offense
punishable with three year's imprisonment, to hold, purchase, conceal
or sell any cattle found astray or to
fraudulently alter or obliterate a
brand, Heretofore the offense consisted in stealing cattle, which was often
very difficult to prove. A new sec
tiou, No. 707, makes the record of a
registered cattle brand prima facie
evidence that the animal is tho prop
crty of the owner of tbe brand and
places on the party in possession the
onus of proving that he is entitled to
such possession.

TRAIL   SMELTER.
Mr. J. 0. Drewery Tells Toronto People of Sale Negotiations.
The following is from the Toronto
Telegram : Mr. J. C. Drewry.of Rossland, B. C., managing director of
the Canadian Gold Fields Syndicate.
Limited, who arrived in the city
yesterday in connection with negotiations for the sulc by the C. P, R. of
the Trail smelter to the Goodcrham-
Hlackstock syndicate, says he looks
forward to a big extension of the
smelting industry. At present tne
American Smelting and Refining Company, known as the smelting trust,
is trying to get higher rates for British Columbia silver-lead ores, by re
fusing to accept them ut the rates of
last year, which is perhaps the most
serious difficulty now experienced.
The Trail smelter is able to smelt
1,000 tone of ore a day, 800 tons of
copper gold ore, and 200 tons of silver-
lead ore. It has several important
mines as customers, including the
War Eagle und Centre Star, as well as
mines iu the Sloean, Boundary district. East Kootenay, etc. Alterations
now in progress will bring the smelter's capucity up to 1,200 tons a day
by March 1.
The C. P. R. has set a price on the
smelter as a going concern, with all
its adjuncts, and the Gooderham-
Hlaekstock people arc given a reasonable time to investigate the property
before deciding.

THE MESSAGE OF GRIEF.
Some time ago a coast paper published an editorial on the poets of
British Columbia. They made no
mention of R. T. Anderson, a young
man of Lemon Creek, who frequently
contributes to the Slocan Drill, and
who can lay claim at least to the title
of the "Kipling of the' Kootenays."
In this week's Drill Mr. Anderson
has the following, under the caption
of "The Message of Grief," wbich we
are sure will compare favorably with
anything written in the same connection by any other Canadian   poet:
Woe in the heart of Britain,
And over the whole wide world,
Wherever   the   flags  of   the   Empire
Ever bave been unfurled.
Listless those flags are drooping.
Hung at a low half mast.
For tbe greatest soul of tbe Empire now
Has out of the Empire passed.
Sixty year* and more���
The    length    of    her  sovereign reign-;
Peace, arid little of war,
And much of a nation's  gain.
Sadness over tbe nation,
And under the seas 'tis sped���
The message, that tells to Britons
Tbe Word that their Queen is dead.
Sadly tbe news is taken
By bard, bronzed men afar;
From up in the land of the  Midnight
Sun
To under the Southern Stat.
Rich in a people's love,
Throned in the heart of a race
Hope fixed high above,
Queen, in a queenly place.
Canada hears the message,
In cities  that throb with life.
And tbe pang comes home to her people
Sharp as a cutting knife.
And swift arway to the westward
Flashes the news again,
O'er prairies, and foothills, and monn
tains and lakes,
To sadden the hearts of men.
Gentle of hand and heart,
Firm, with a royal -will;
Queen, with a queenly art.
Blest with a womanly skill.
Over tbe earth It passes,
Swift as a thought to reach
Lands tbat are little opened,
Men with an alien speech.
Red men and Black men bear it,
And, half In awe, they tell
How the "Great   Mother"   has  gone
away
, From the children who lov'd her well.
Glorious Heavenly lot,
Naught of the Earth's  decay;
A kingdom that fadeth not,
Nor crown that shall pasg sway.
-R. T. ANDERSON.
Lemon Creek, B.C., Jan. 22, 1901.

"ONE OF OURSELVES.'"
An extremely entertaining addition
to Longman's Colonial Library bas
just been made in the publication of
"One at Ourselves," by that popular
novelist, Miss L. B. Walford. It Is
a story of English life, and throughout the greater part of it is as delightful as a day In June. We find
ourselves among an amusing olass of
people some of whom afford us an immense amount of interest. During
the great part of the book we are enjoying the brightest, cheeriest sunshine, and are on excellent terms with
the various characters. All at once
clonds gather, and break out into a
storm of considerable violence. It
comes so suddenly and unexpectedly
that We ar<" surprised by it. There is
distress, of course, but the storm
blows over and tbe sun cornea ont
again ; we forget in the general happiness in the end the one incident of
the book that for the moment gives
such a shock to our feelings. Copp,
Claik & Co., Toronto, are the Canadian publishers.
BREAK THE NEWS GENTLY.
News that President Jaflray and the
Globe are out gunning for the C. P.
R. should be broken gently to Hon.
Joseph Martin, or tbe surprise will
occasion a relapse just as be is leaving
the h��spital.��� Toronto Telegram.

FOR HIS COMMISSION.
Frank Osier Sues For Money Alleged
to Be Due Him.
The docket for the sittings of the
Supreme court to be held here next
month irgradually filling up and the
list promises to be lengthy. One of
the clases recently added is that of
Oslei Vs.   Moore in   which the   plain-
��� '���tiff, Frank Osier, seeks to leeoverSfl,-
-fiOO commission alleged to be due   him
'.'���on the sale of the California group of
claims by William Moore, one of Nel-
son's old timers, to Hugh.Sutherland.
The property comprises three claims
the California, Boston and Deadwood,
on Toad Mountain In the vicinity of
.the Exchequer mine. The group was
bonded to Mr. Sutherland in the fall
of 1898 at 8!i0,000 and is now owned
by the California Mining company.
The principal point at issue in the
ease seems to be the defendant's contention that plaintiff had no authority as agent regarding the Deadwood
claim in respect to which the consideration was largely paid, and that, in
respect to the other claims the first
bond did not go through. It is asserted that Osier had no connection with
the second bond which was the one
that went through, and that he is
therefore not entitled to recover commission. B. M. Macdonald is acting
fir plaintiff and Macdonald and John
son for the defence.

STURDY  BLACKSMITHS
- Leara Pacts About Ooffee.
Two blacksmiths of Northampton,
Mass.', Messrs. Thayer und McGrath,
both discovered that coffee was the
cause of heartburn and : sour stomach
continually troubling them in spite of
active exercise.. They left off the
coffee and began taking Postum Food
in the church on Sunday.
The case of James Russell who was
badly Injured in Wednesday's coasting
accident, has taken a serious turn
and it is feared tbat the worst may
result at any moment. Fat embolism, a condition following severe
fractures though rarely seen,has man
ifesed itself and the physioians believe
that Russell's chances of recovery are
slim. He is a young man of 28"*years
and has a wife aud child in New York
state. Russell's mother and a sister,
Mrs. Killam, reside at Vermillion Bay
on Lake Superior. They were advised of tbe accident and are now on
their way to Nelson. Two months
ago Russell took out an insurance
policy for 82 000 and the policy had
just been delivered to him on tbe day
of the accident. He is a carpenter
and popular among his associates
Sere. ' ���
KASLO'S  SMELTER.
Citizens Quickly Subscribe to Stock
Offered Them.
In regard to Kaslo's smelter proposition the Kaslo Kootenalan says:
The block of 100 shares offered to the
citizens by tbe promoters of the smelter company was subscribed for in a
few hours.. The proceeds, 810,000 will
be used for the purpose of organization and promotion and for the purchase of tbe sites upon which options
are held by the company. Mr. W. II.
Jeffrey, M. E., consulting engineer
'or the company, left on Tuesday for
Toronto and Montreal and is authorized to dispose of a portion of the
stock. Another large block has been
reserved for the representatives of
mining companies doing business in
Kootenay. Propositions for certain
concessions will be immediately laid
before the municipal council.
Everything so far Ib looking well
for the success of the scheme. The
Information that has been collected
as to an available ore supply is of
such a nature as to warrant the pro
moters in believing that a plant of
300 tons per day capacity, instead of
one of 100 tons as was first thought
of will   find   immediate "employment.

RAISE THE  RATES.
Montreal,   Jan. 25.���As a result  jf
three  big   fires   within   a  week,   in
which it is estimated  the loss exceed-
iastic over Postum.
If powerful men like blacksmiths
are affected by the drugs contained
in ordinary coffee, it would seem folly for brain workers to try to withstand the effects of it.
Hiram Day, a man seventy-five
years old, also of Northampton, has
used coffee for a great many years,
and developed serious bilious troubles,
A few months ago he left off ooffee
and began using Postum Food Coffee,
He has recovered his health and considers Fostnm in every way superior
to ordinary ooffee.
Edson P. Clark also of Northampton, Mass., a pencil manufacturer,
was troubled with dyspepsia and kidney disorders. He was Induced to
leave off coffee and use Postum Food
Coffee in its place. He says he has
never been as well in twenty five
years as he Is at present,nnd gives the
entire credit to Postum.
Nearly every coffee user is ill In
some part ot the body. Coffee does
not directly affect the sumo organs in
every man or woman, but the effect
is first on the stomach, and from that
to the nervous system. When the
nerves are out of order It may show
In the different organs like the kidneys, liver, heart, lungs, bowels or
some other part of the body, or the
trouble may show itself in a general
nervous and unbalanced condition.
When coffee is dispensed with, and
nature begins to sat np a cure, it Is
very greatly helped in this work by
tbe use of Postum Food Coffee, for It
contains certain elements that the
life foree use* to build up the nclls
and the gray matter in the nerve center*. Any person oan prove this same

surance underwriters met this morning and increased insurance rates fifty
per cent, in risks. Not only that but
tbey established a conflagration district which includes the entire wholesale district of the city und levied an
extra twenty-five cents per hundred
on mercantile pioperty situated therein. Certain preferred risks are exempted from the fifty per cent increase
but all are subject to the oonflagra
tion rate. The action of the under
writers was largely determined by
the necessity of improving the fire
brigade which lacks much necessary
apparatus.
