Nelson,  British Columbia, Thuksday,   December 12, 1901
Eleventh Year
Chimes of Normandy" Produced In   Splendid
Nelson's   Operatic   Society
Scores Another Unqualified Success.
The essence of comic opera, and
particularly of French comic opera,
commonly known as opera bouffe, is
vivacity and gayety and those who
present it must do so with a happy
abandon and sprightliness whicb
would he out of place in almost any
other form of entertainment that it
staged. The music ot such operas,
while not classical and heavy, is still
tuneful and composed In harmony to
heat in unison with the pulres of
youth, when the heydey is still in the
blond. The grand opera usually represents some passionate action, while
in comic opera the Comedy element
predominates, mixed with enough of
that, which is serious to make it ac-
ceptable,but the action must be rapid,
ann those who produce it must enter
folly into its spirit and give themselves almost unrestrainedly to it.
This was the spirit with which the
members of the Nelson Operatic
society entered into the production of
'���The Clmiies of Normandy" at the
opera house laat evening and tho result was a performance which was far
above the ordinary. Besides tbe spirit
alluded to talents of a high order,
both vocally and histrionically, arc
necessary and these are possessed by
the members of the society, and did
their full share in making the production the unqualified success which It
was. It must be remembered, too,
that those who participated in the
production were daily engaged In
their usual avocations and could only
give fractions of their time to the
training necessary for so ambitions an
undertaking as producing a comio
opera. That Iheir training had been
conducted along the proper lines was
evidenced by the happy manner in
which every act was given with
scarcely a hitch from beginning to
The opera house wss filled, too, by
a large and most appreciative audience, who by their well timed and
appropriate applaue gave the members of the company just tne right
sort of encouragement. It was a rep-
rcnen'ative audience and Its verdict
was one which was highly complimentary to the members ot the oompany.
The orchestration under the leadership of llerr Steiner was one of the
features of the performance and must
havo even sitisfled the leader, who
will nut tolerate any trifling with the
score. The scenery was exceptiooaly
good. That of the chateau of Corue-
ville being particularly appropriate
us careful attention was given to detail in the armor in which Grencheux
was encased, in the armorial designs
on the wall and the stained glass
"inilov. The costumes were appropriate and neat for the churus and
minor character, while for the leading people they were simply mngnili
Tne   costume of Serpolecte  as

C. Ii Winter gave an excellent bit
of character acting as Gaspaid, the

E. Oriddle, as the Bailie, C. Prosser. as the Registrar, I. Q. Nelson,
as the Assessor, OnslowJNewling as

as Gertrude, was effective and aided
in   rounding   eff a good performance.
The specialties given by the
Quakeress quartette evoked a storm ol
applause and a bouquet for eacb.
They rendered a song which greatly
pleased the audience and were compelled to. answer to encores. Two
stanzas of the song which took so
well are as follows:
Sisters, sisters, we've been thinking.

well appreciated feature and the

there was again a very large attendance, many being unable to gain entrance to the hall.
A resolution endorsing ex-Premier
Greenway as leader of the party In

John Sullivan, engineer in charge

his way up to the road.
Washington, T)ec. 11.- Two speeches
on the Ilay-Pauncefote treaty were
made in the cxeontive session of the
senate today, one by Senator Bacon,
in opposition to the treaty and the
other by Senator Cullom, the prospective chairman of tlie committee on
toreign relations, in support of it.
Mr. Bacon replied to the speeoh
mado yesterday by Senator Lodge.
He suirmed up his objections in the
statement that he could not freely accept any treaty which does not place
the Isthmian canal entirely under
American auspices aud American control. This, he said, the pending treaty
does not do. It did not accomplish
what had been accepted by the senate
amendments made to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty at the last session of congress. The Davis amendment, ne
said, hnd abrogated all the objectionable provisions of the treaty as ne-
gotiitied and it did not matter what
provisions there were in the agreement so long as the United States
were authorized, as they were by the
principal Davis amendment, to secure
the safety and maintenance of the
[���anal by their own force.
����>ilHnrOnly,rjgflly, *' be said, "which
the advocates of the treaty make to
criticism 1s that the canal would be
under the fall control of the United
States in time of war; but thin is no
more true now than under the old
treaty.'' He contended that the only
power given to the United States
whioh was not given to Great Britain
was found in Ihe last sentence of regulation 2, providing that "the United
States shall be at liberty to maintain
such military police along the canal
as may be necessary to protect it
against lawlessness and disorder."
This, he said, was not sucttiieut to
make the canal an| American institution aud if the Daivs amendment had
been necessary to render the original
treaty acceptable it was equally
necessary in this instance.
In conclusion Mr. Bacon announced
that while he had no intention of voting for the treaty, he would do nothing to obstruct its ratification.
Senator Gullom was glad that there
are two things in the new treaty upon
which practically all are agreed.
One of these was the desirability of
the suppression of tbe Clayton-Bulwer
treaty and tne other that of the necessity for the construction of an Isthmian canal.
He contended that the new tieatv
practically changes the conditions
presented by tho flrst Hay-Pauncefote
treaty, clearly relieving it of the
necessity of suah an amendment as
that made to the old treaty upon the
suggestion of Senator Davis because
the treaty itself will permit the
United States, under international
law, to own, manage and defend the
canal in any way that It may choo6e.
In other words, he said, in a war
with Great Britain, or with any
other power, the treaty would be suspended under the law whieh governs
nations until the war should be concluded, when it would be revived and
again enfotced He admitted that the
new treaty retains the general principle of neutralization as did the
original Bay-i'auncefote treaty, but
he urged that It does not re-enaot, or
keep alive any of the provisions of the
treaty of 1H50. While it retains the
doctrines of neutralization the provision making that retention applies,
the senator contended, to al! nations
alike Dut to none of them for any
longer time than they observe the
regulations prescribed by the United
States. When they should fall in this
observance we could close the canal
under the terms of the treaty. All
nations would he treated on terms of
fairness and equality by allowing all
to use the canal in time of peace and
shutting out ail in time of war in
oat-e it should be desirable to do so.

Tuesday afternoon an accident occurred on the Lardo railway that nearly caused several deaths. As it was one
of those affected by it suffered severe
injuries and Is now at the hospital at
Kaslo. Five men were oomiug down
the track on a handcar whioh they
were making go as fast as a favorable
grade and their strength could make
it. Just after thc-y bad passed the
second crossing of the Lardo river,
they came around a curve to see an
empty flat car standing on the track
immediately ahead. There was no
time to put on brakes and tbe handcar
crashed into tbe flat car, and was
badly smashed. Alfred Anderson, a
foreman on the construction had his
head badly cut and sustained Internal
injuries, while the other men were
severely bruised. Dr. Harkins went
up on the steamer Nelson and brought
the injured man down to Kaslo for
treatment at the hospital. The car
had been left standing to be loaded
with ballasting but a short time
Ciioulars wore received yesterday
by several Nelson business men from
a ''green goods" dealer, giving his
address at a small town in South Carolina. The circular stated that the
writer had been superintendent of a
section of the government engraving
department at Washington for a number of years and manufactured bank
notes that weie exactly indentieal
witb the genuine. All kinds of pre
cautions were prescribed In answering
the communication, the writer trusting in the recipient's '-honor" that
he would not give the scheme away.
Tne receivers of the letters were not to
hestitate at any sacrifice in order to
raise the $500 necessary to buy the
bundle of greenbacks that would be
given in exchange. They were advised to pay any rate of interest tbat
would be asked, as in a short time
they would be able to pay it back
with ease, besides making an enormous
profit. The author did not explain
why if his notes were absolutly perfect tbat he should take snch risks in
taking a large number of strangers
into his confidence, when he could so
easily pass them himself at their full
v lue.        _
This Will Be One Task   of
the Labor   Federation.
Different    Associations
Same Trade to Amalgamate.
Scranton, Pa., Dec. 11.���Business
closely relating to tbe organization
of labor in these fields where there is
no union and the strengthening of the
hands of those who have embraced
unionism, took up most of the time
of today's session of the American
federation of Labor.
Thirty odd resolutions were considered upon eight of which final action
was taken. All tbe other pronositionB
were elthe sent back to committees
or referred to the incoming exeuntive
council with the question of trade
autonomy now in the hands of the
special committee appointed to consider the subject. The committee was
named at the morning session and all
resolutions and other documents relating to trade or industrial autonomy
were referred to it. The committee
will make a report probably Friday or
Saturday. Among the resolutions
adopted weie these: "Requesting the
Terra Cotta Pressers and Finishers
Union to affiliate with the International Brick Tile and Terra Cotta
Workers alliance or have their charters ievoked by the federation; recommending that the federation make an
effort during the coming year to organize the school teachers of this
country; authorizing the federation
to send deputies to national and international organizations, particularly
those of rail vny employees endorsing
the label of the International Wood
Carvers' association and instructing
the executive council to nse every
effort to secure the passage of a
national law protecting and legalizing itself.
The reading of the papers uf the
executive council took up more than
an hour of the convention's time.
The report was sent to committee for
consideration. An adjournment had
to be taken early in the afternoon
session to enable the committee to
ro.isider business which will come before ��.he convention later.
Nn Closed Season For Game Along the
Arrow Lakes.
Editor Miner.���Kindly grant me
space in your valuable publication to
ask why���put why Is large type
please���are the game laws enacted,
and why from Hobson to Revelstoke,
a gang of drift from across the line
is permitted,year after year, and every
mouth in the year, to harry and ravish
the country of everything that crawls,
runs, flies or swims, until the section
along the Arrow lakes has become, so
far as game ia concerned, a howling
wilderness? Tbe opinion, freely expressed along the lakes, is that the
provincial police are afraid of this
pestiferous gang; surely tbis is not
the case. I am assured again, that
the Justices of tbe Peace will not act.
If this is true it is creditable, indeed.
Is thc game warden, poor dear mnn,
appointed solely for tho puroose of
drawing his salary? j These opinions
may, or may not, be correct, bnt the
fact still exists that there is no closed
season along the Arrow lakes. I do
not speak by hearsay, but of my own
knowledge. Game is being slaughtered in the most disgraceful] manner
and without let or hindrance from
any legal authority. Thus'the game
is being killed oo tbe only winter
range which they have ln that section
between Fire valley and Deer Park,
along this range. The wolves congregate during tbe first heavy snow,when
the deer are driven from tbe bills.
There are no police oi game wardens
within many miles to protect them
from the unlawful hunters, who so
mercilessly slay their quarry in season and out of season. Just listen to
the boom of the guns and the howl of
tbeir mongrel ours driving what game
is not killed out of the country.
Let me qnote one or two instances
of which I bave personal cognisance.
Some twelve months ago a colored
nan   from   Idaho   In two days  in the
vicinity of the Hot Springs killed 18
caribon, nine of which were cows.
He sold what he could pack out of
the hind quarters, or hams, dried
about 150 pounds of the meat for consumption, secured the pelts and left
the remainder for his relations, the
wolves. Another gang of three, bunting on McDonald creek, killed three
caribou packed out most of the csreass
of one and left the remainder to rot or
for food for thc woives. I could fill a
page of The Miner with incidents
like these. Three years since deer
were numerous, but now there is
scarcely a hoof print to be seen and
under the present system these animals will soon be things of the past.
The game laws should be enforced
and the game protected tor the benefit
of the settler, the prospector and tho
citizens, who may wish to spend a
week or two in the hills for the sake
of legitimate sport and i,ut solely for
the beuefit of a gang who arc too
honest apparently to work and a trifle
too lazy to steal If any doubts exist
as to the truth of these statements let
inquiries be made of Messrs. Mathie-
son. Funk, Johnston, Christie, Andrews, Reveller, Sapandusky, Burton,
or any other person competent to give
an opinion, who resides on the lakes.
As I write there are three boats passing en rouie for the pot hunters rendezvous to the south of Cape Horn.
Yours truly, FOR THE GAME

Lt. Brown Offers to Raise a Troop  of
Experienced Packers.
The ten men selected for the South
African contingent left on the Moyie
this morning. None of them belong
to the local militia company bnt two
of them were in South Africa before,
Simms, who was with the C. M. R.,
and Dunn, who was with the Stratb-
Capt. Leckie, before leaving Nelson
had received instructions by wire to
proceed without delny to Halifax.
He therefore finished his duties as recruiting officer at Fort Steele yesterday and left at once fur the east.
At the Suggestion of Lt. Brown,
Capt. Macdonnell on Saturday wired
to Lt.-Col. Holmes the offer to raise
a troop of men who would oe experts
in packing and the care of horses.
These would make a valuable adjunct
to a corps ot mounted rifles. These
men would be able to take charge of
all the light transpoit of the regiment
giving mobility at a greater aisiance
from the base of supply than where
wagons are relied on. Lt. Brown is
of opinion that with 25 men as a
nucleus, who oould instruct others
now in 'the contingent who have already some knowledge of the art,
detachments could be formed that
could beat tbe Boers at their own
game Without wheeled transport
these men could make rapid progress
away from beaten lines of travel, on
tours that might take a week or ten
days. Tbe mobility of such a detachment would make it of the greatest
service, could follow the enemy at
equal speed into as rough country, nr
if thought best could lie in wait
among the bills as tbe Boers r~o, till
the advantageous moment to strike
the blow: The effectiveness of such
a body can be judged when it is
realised that one hurso laden with
two boxes cf biscuits and a case of
beef carries sustenance for one and a
half days for a troop of forty men.
A knowledge of the diamond bitch,
which these men would have, enables
a man to paok.in a pinch,on any style
of saddle, western stock saddle, inili
tary saddle or pack saddle, In fact
anything that will protect a horse's
baok, a load that will carry safely ln
any country over which a hcrse can
walk. A corps of men of this class
and otherwise fit as soldiers could be
recruited in British Columbia and
would be nf incalculable utility on
such an expedition as this contingent
is undertaking. The ponies and ruu
down hordes of tho conntry, which
can be obtained in abundance, can be
utilized for this purpose.
So far no answer to the suggestion
has been reoeived from Ottawa but
Lt. Brown has confidence tbat when
Capt. Leckie confers with Col. Evans
on the subject that the idea will likely be adopted as Col, Evans has had
experience with such a detachment
when be took a party cf Canadian
troops into tbe Yukon.
St. John, Dec. II.���Rev. John Slcn-
ton, paitor of Fairvillc Methodist
church, dropped dead today, ai he sat
at the dinner tanle with his wife.
Heart failure was thc cause.
1 Montreal, Dee. 11.���An Important
meeting of Dominion Iron and Steel
company's direotors was held here today. At the close it was announced
that James Ross, hereafter would
tako a more active part in the management of the company practically
replacing H. M. Wh^ney in the
financial management as he did a
short time ago in the management of
the Dominion Coal company. Mr.
Ross announced that he nad just returned from a trip to the leading
steel manufacturing centres in the
ULlted States and felt that nothing
could prevent the Dominion Steel
company from commanding the situation, both in tbe pig iron and steel on
the American continent.
It was also announced that tho
manufacture of steel would be begun
early next month and that the output
had been sold in advance at remunerative prices. Ross,Cox and other Canadian shareholders have largely increased their holdings recently and
the company is becoming Canadian in
ownership as well as in local situation.
Damages Sought Becnnse   White Pass-
Yukon Rates Not Approved.
Victoria, Dec. II.���Two writs were
today served on the Victoria representative of tbe British-Yukon Co .otherwise the White Pass and Yukon route,
each claiming (20,000 from the company on the grounds that the rates
on their railway had not been approved by tbe Dominion government
as required by the Dominion Railway
act. These are thc actions which it
was said in these despatches a few
days ago would be brought. Tne
claimants are the Upper Yukon Consolidated company and John Cleari-
hue, both were targe shippers to
points in the Yukon.
They ask the return of freight rates
and passenger fares paid the com puny
and damages, relying ou the claim
that thc rates cf the compauy were
not approved an j on section 200 of the
Canadian Railway act which reads,
"every persou from whom any company exacts any unjust or extortionate toll, rate or charge, shall in addition to tbe amount so unjustly exacted, be entitled to recover from tho
company as damages an amount equal
to thiee times the amount so unjustly
These are Out test cases and if the
claimants are successful actions involving millions of dollars will be
commenced against thc company, the
representatives of which are in Ottawa al present in connection with
'he refusal of the Dominion government to approve the tariff submitted
by the company. Messrs. Hlggins and
Elliott arc acting for both claimants.
As stated the ether day, they will
contend tbat the .rates wers exorbitant, avoraging about 20 cents per
mile and that those taking the autluns
incurred serious loss through the conii
pany allowing secret rebates to competitors.
Amalgamated   Scheme   Voted Down-
Alexandra to Reopen.
Nanaimo, Dec. 11.���Dunmuir has
been successful in breaking the amal
gamation. Last night the Alexandra
union tecided to cancel the application made on Saturday after a lung
and bitter debate in the local union
lhe Alexandra will later be reopened
as owing to the failure at No. 3
Extension, now being flooded, the
company must get coal from tbe Alexandra. The mine is to be started with
non-unionists from Ladysmlth. probably early in the new year. The company's tactics will probably prove
successful owing to the dissensions
among the men.

The Ontario government assay office
located at Belleville, and conducted
by the bureau of mines 'or the assistance of prospectors and the development of the mineral resources of
Ontario, 6hows a total receipt of l!l!i
samples during the month of October.
The assays and analytical determinations aggregated 31, each cheeked oiT
by a duplicate in order to avoid errors
before issuing certificates Of these
411 were for gold, 31 silver, 7 nickel,
10 copper, etc. Hixteeen samples of
iron ores from dlfTersflt parts of
Ontario were receiver1 for partial or
complete examination as to smeltug
quality. Sixty-one samples of raw
and briquetied peat were received foi
analysis as to quality for fuel purposes. The Ontario liureau of Mines
nquired 251 determinations on which
no fees were collected, 130 being done
for private parties. The custom work
for thc public is done nt actual cost,
the fees collected from this source
amounting to fllS.SS. .Seventy-three
samples for Identification or report as
to probablp value, as well as qualitative examinations were received, on
which fees amounting to $1.1.20 were
collected. No change is made for
such examinations on samples brought
personally to the lubratory.

The British Columbia department of
mine!', while a comparatively useful
institution, is entirely too slow. The
report tor any given year is usually
issued several months 'after the year
Is ended and is, therefore, ancient history by the time it reaches the p-jlilie,
which sustains the department. It
could materially increase its usefulness uy adopting tho milletin system
like the Ontario office. It could also
duplicate the Ontario system of making assa)s and analyses at coat. This
would be of great help to the pros
peetor, as the price of an assay or
qusntitative analysis is ofi.cn an important consideration to him after he
comes in from the hills. This would
interfere with tlie regularly licensed
aaseayerB, it will be said. We do not
believe that tins would be the case to
any great extent as the use of the
government assay and analysis privilege could be restricted lo tlioie who
could not Bffoid to pay tho higher
charges of the regular assayer and
analytical chemist.
As at present conducted the provincial department of mining is far behind tbe times and entirely too deliberate for a young country like t li in is.
A complete change in methods should
b�� adopted. Bulletins regarding the
ouptut should be published at least
onee a month and oftener, if the occasion should arise, and in these could
be embodied tlie latest authentic information regarding mining.
Take the recent reported discovery
of rich placers on the llorseily as an
instance. If the department wns
alive to its real mission it would long
since have secured information as to
" *��� placers, und iBmed a bulletin
concerning them. Coming from an
officio,! source like the department of
mines would give the information
so disseminated the stump ol reliability. Ihire have been Home llnds of
molybdenum in the Nelson division
and near the coast. A bulletin on the
value of molybdenum and where II
could be marketed would be acceptable and would perhaps result in the
divclopment of these deposits. The
deparment of mines has facilities for
securing information of thi* character
whieh are better than those of individuals engaged in prospecting or
mining. The department could thus
make itn-lf useful in a number of
ways,   whicb   it fails   to take advan
tage of, as it seems to bi permeated
by a system of dry rot. It is evidently in need of some new and yourg
blood to give it more energy, and to
make it of greater benefit to the min-
ir.g public than it is. The idea in
establishing it was to foster the mining industry, but it is performing the
task as though it thought the present
generation had a life time that wil
extend over a couple of centuries.

A correspnnent in another column
in this Issue calls attention to the violation of the game laws along the
Arrow lakes. Ihere are a number of
points along these lakes where there
is good winter feed for game and
they congregate there at ce tun times
in large numbers. Sportsmen declare
that this section used to be one of
the nest localities for hunting in tlie
province According to the story told
hy our correspondent Ihere is no
close season there now nnd owing to
lhe wanton and caseless destruction of
deer, caribou etc., and now they are
extremely scarce. Owing to the ease
with which Ibis section is reached by
water it has been overrun with hunt
ers, many of whom came from south of
the international boundary line, whose
only ambition seems to he to kill the
deer and caribou for their hides as
they save only a small poition ofthe
meat. Tlie section along the lakes is
sparsely inhabited and has probably
been overlooked by those who have in
charge the enforcement of the game
laws. It is improbable that the officers
of the law are afraid tc do their duty
as hinted by oui correspondent. We
are certain that if he, or any of the
parties he mentions, will but take the
ttoubie to lodge a formal complaint
against the violators of the law and
are willing to testify against them,
that a sudden halt will be called tu
the illegal killing of game. Now that
the matter has been brought to public
attention the efflcers will take the
initiative and put a stop to practices
which are nothing short of shameful.
The sportsmen of Nelson should co
operate with the officers of the law in
this matter.
At the same time as the new city
council will be elected there will
also require to be chosen two additional membeis for the school
board. Next year, accenting to tbe
amendment to the School act passed
at last session of the legislature, the
eity will have full charge of the schools
both high and public. The board
will then consist of five members but
as those now in office continue for the
remainder of their unexpired terms
there will be but two new men required. The term of one of these ends
on June Doth next and the Education
department may decide that his successor should be elected in January to
enter on his duties on July 1st.
The set provides that the provincial
treasurer (.hall pay to the corporation
the sum of SIS for each one of average actual attendance at the schools
with nn additional 81)00 on account of
the High school. All the money re
quired beyond this the city will have
to furnish, a sum which is expected to
be about $4,000.
Nelson seems naturally destined to
become the educational centre of
inland British Columbia. Already
there are pupils in attendance at Ihe
High school from outside the eity, and
with so many small places not far
distant, which for many years cannot
have sufficient pupils to obtain a High
school of their own, the number of
outsiders will inevitably increaso so
that the High school will become the
means of bringing money into the eity.
Tbe importance of tlie office of member ot the school board is scarcely less
than that of alderman as it is very
desirable that the ideal of the very
best schools, both public and high,
should be steadily worked toward.
The general diskcminatlon of the
knowledge that consumption is contagions is making the lot of those
alllieted with the dread disease a most
uncomfortable and unhappy one. Thc
knowedge that oao Is a victim of
tuberculosis causes him to be avoided
as though striken with leprosy. As
this is the ease every community
should have sanitaria where those
allliiteil wilh the disease could be
isolated and where they could be
givn i-cientlfie troatmrnt, as it is
claimed that recent experiments in
Enrope and elsewhere have shown that
a ceitain proportion oi those in Ihe
first stages of the disease ran be cured
when properly trented. The Albertan
of December 7th tc11h the following
incident which reveals how those
affiieted with consumption are sometimes treated, but in ihis Instance
the sufferer fortunately fell into the
hands   of a good Samaritan:

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.    It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Yonr trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. [ cannot
tell you bow thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for tep
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
suw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overepoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial noted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we oan Btate that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yonrs,

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife -has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for the past \f years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th Btreet, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of ABtbmalenn.
My wife commenced takiog it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her ABthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHBLPb, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bros, Mbdicinb Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, but they have all failed. I ran aomss yonr advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four ohildren, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best'of health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see fit.

inquiries, we were told that he wns
suffering from consumption and that
he was sent out of tbe hospital. Of

naturally the poor man was evaded
by everyone in sight, and was not

asked him if there was anything he

congestion of tlie brain. The death is
a peculiarly sad one in the fact that
four young children, the youngest of
whom is a baby of two months, are
left motherless. Much sympathy is
felt for Mr. Emerson, who has been
seriously ill for some days himself.

"The first misunderstanding thn
Katie and I ever had was on account
of coffee. She would not give it to
me because she was sure it was the
cause of my nervousness and sick
spells, so 1 regularly dropped into my
Aunt's house on the way from school
(I am a school teachei you see) anri
stealthily put down n good strong cup
of coffee each day
One of my sleepless nights I lay
wondering what ailed me and how
long my money would last if I got
sick suddenly. I went to school the
next day as I had often done before,
with nerves very tremulous and a distressing headache creeping over every
cubic inch of my brain. When I
reached thc dinner table at night,
shaved and in my right mind, but
very tired and faint, I gave a little
start of surprise and delight, followed
instantly with a feeling of shame.
Lad my sharp, though ralld-eyed
little wife discovered the extent of
my recent prefidy? Did she know I
had been takiDg coffee each day eon
trHry to agreeim nt? Beside my plate, in
mj own beautiful silver Xinas present
cup, smoked and fairly smiled the
beverage, inviting, delicious liquid.
I hastened to pour in a geiierout'
supply of cream with lhe usual ration
of sugar Then I sipped the treasure
with delight.
It tasted a good deal better than
usual, someway, but not exactly
natural. When my cup was about
half empty, 1 began to wonder if it
would be replenished, so I Mole a
glance lit lhe little woman. Hbe hud
a far away look in her eyes and alittle
victorious curl on tier lips.
All at once I understood, 'Now
Kane,' I said amazedly, 'you don't
mean to tell me this is Postum? Her
pretty little laugh rang out at once,
and she asked through the folds of
her n.-ij kin." I) n you think now there
is such a thing as a good food coffee?'
I roared (with m.v late experience
Iresh in my mind) Don't ever say
coffee to me again; I am R saved roan
tonight.' I then and there hugged m>
guardian angel and swore off on
coffee, for keeps.
My health and spirits have been
gaining   steadily,   until    now I sleep
like   a   babe   and   cat like a ,
well, like a man who   knows his food
is going to agree with him.
It was a happy day for wife and I
(and for numbers of our friends),
when the real danger of coffee drink
ing vvas discovered and a beverage
that would take its pluce was put on
our table. I have been saved from a
spell of nervous prostration, tbe oat-
come of which no one can ever foretell." Ron House, Boblnson, Utah.

yesterday afternoon on the ponds
along the flats to lhe westward of

shallow ponds whs quite firm,although

Maurice Hewlett, the author of
Richard Yea-and-Nay, popularly admitted to be the best book of 190(1,
has scored another triumph in the
New Canterbury Tales, just issued by
The Copp, Clark Company, of Toronto. The admirably told stories are
strung together ofler the fashion of
those in the original Tales and hence
the name. The literary style has the
peculiar and strong individuality of
Mr. Hewlett, full of nervous energy,
tense and thrilling. The book Is a
masterpiece us to literary art and
happily is without a moral or a lesson. It is a thoroughly enjoyable
one from beginning to end, without
a jarring note.

Closing Out Announcement.
Martin O'Reilly & Co. in making their Closing- Out Announcement, beg to tender their thanks to
their many friends and customers for past patronage during the time they have been in business in Nelson.
We propose giving the public generally, a life's opportunity of buying Dry Goods at prices never befoie
approached in the Kootenays or elsewhere. During the past week our store has daily presented a lively appearance, and we feel satisfied that our many customers went away highly pleased with their bargains. The
startling reductions in every department has been the means of greatly reducing our stock; but we still have
an enormous Stock of Goods to sell, and if Price Breaking can do it,another week will see our fixtures with
less goods on them. _____________________________
