Nelson,   British  Columbia, Wednesday,   March 19, 1902
Eleventh  Year
Ghat With J. F.
Who Well Knows Their
Birds Would
the Vicinity
:  Nelson.
Among the guests at the Hume
yesterday was J. F. McNaught, of
Spokane, Mr. McNaught at one time
enjoyed tho distinction of being the
ownei of more Mongolian pheasants
than any man on the North American
continent. This fact is important tu
the Tourist association of this city for
the reason that the intention is to
stock the vioinity of this oity with the
beautiful game birds. A group was
sitting in the Hume hotel last evening
composed of 3. Fred flume, William
Hunter, Mr. McNaught and a Miner
representative. When the asemblage
had disposed of the liner war, settled
the question of lead n-liuing, and determined on what the relation of Canada
should be to the Mother Country, tne
question of stocking the section
aiound Nelson with game birds came
np, and Mr. McNaught said : "You
should introduce the Mongolian
pheasant bere. He is a game bird and
can make a living anwyhere you put
"What do you know about the
Monoglian pheasant?" asked Mr.
"I do not pretend to be an expert
on birds, but at one time I was the j
owner of an island in Puget Sound
which had more Mongolian, pheasants
upon it than any other piece of
ground oi line size in A.ncnca, The
story is rather a long one, and if you
care to listen I will tell it to you.
"Ho on, go on," said Mr Hunter.
' 'In the seventies Mr. Denny was a
member of the Multnomah Kod and
Gun elub of Portland, Ore., and early
in the eighties bo was appointed by
the president of tho United States as
minister to Korea. As he was an
ardent sportsman he continued to bunt
while he was in the Far Gust and
during these trips he killed many
Asiastic pheasants. He saw tho possi-
biliies of the birds and remembering
the friends of the Multnomah Rod
and Gun club he gatheied togehter
about three dozen ot the pheasants
and sent tbem across the ocean to
them. Thero wore Japanese golden
and silver pheasants and Chinese golden and silver pheasants. A portion
of the birds were placed in the Willamette valley, near Portland, and the
remainder wero put on Protection
island and the club agreed to pay a
certain sum each month for their
eare. They increased rapidly and
throve wonderfully on tho island,
which has au aroa of 400 acres, until
there was considerably over a thousand of them,
"Aftor a time the Kod and Gun club
tired cf paying for the care of the
birds and they reverted to the owner
of the island.
"In duo course of timo,along in 1888
or 18811, Protection island became my
property; as a matter of faot, I had to
take it in payment of a debt. I built
a handsome bugakw with a large
sitting room and five or six bfjdrcoins
aud used to tnke my Seattle friends
down there tc shoot. Sometimes we
wold stay foi a week and when there
were eight or ten guns in tbe party we
would kill as many as 250 birds io
that time. The birds breed very fast
raisig from 13 to 1G chicks at each
sitting and the shooting did not seem
to decrease their number, They are
the gamost bird I ever saw aB they
can live anywhere. At timos the snow
would oover the island for over two
weeks at a stretch and birds shot at
the concision ol tho storm were just
as 1st as they could bo. They are ablo
to scratch down through the snow to
obtain food."
''Would theji be able to live along
the arm of the lake here?"
"I am certain that they would thriva
in this section. The Tourist association should send to Portland and get
about a dozen pail and turn them out.
I'll guarantee thnt tho weather will
not kill thoro. Of course a law should
the hunting would be splendid. What
you want, h iwever. iB the Mongolian
pheasant. I mean tbe red Mongolian,
Ue is the hardiest and I believe
would thrive in the Yukon. He is a
great rustler and can make a living
under the most adverse circumstances.
McNaUght | Why they tunred a dozen out inthe
, Willamette valley and they were protected by the law for five years They
,;ot to be a regular nuisance as tbey
walk into the barnyards and
whip the roosters. They have virtually overrun the entire valley and are
now shot regularly by everyone and
still they are plentiful. It would be
the same way here if they are given a
chance to multiply up to a couple of
hundred, as they are hard to kill out
once they are firmly established. They
make splendid shooting.
"The Tourist association could nut
make a wiser move than to get a few
and put them out to grow,so to speak.
" \t one time we had about 7,000
chickens on Protection island. We
built a brooder 210 feet long aud 30
leet wide and put in a lot of incubators. We had seven largo compart-
meuts in the brooder and the chickens
after they were hatched were shifted
from compartment to compartment in
each of which they were given a
different kind uf food and treatment
until they were 'old enough to be
taken out. Next they were placed in
a dark place under a largo barn
where they were fed all that they
could eat and where they conld not
move around much and tbey became
as tender and juicy as it was possible
for them to bo. They made nice broilers and we sold them in Seattle aud
Tacoma for fs a dozen. We made
money for three years Then they
began to send frozen chicuens from
the east and to sell they for $3 a dozen
and we could not compete and had to
abandon the enterprise.
Next we fitted up the brooder as an
immense pigeon bouse and doon we
I** several thousand pigeons, We
had arranged to supply the gun elu bs
with live pigeons for shooting
tourneys. A pact of the island was
devoted to raising grain, but the
pigeons wonld swoop down on this
and destroy the shoots of grain as fast
as they came from the ground. lie-
sides this they would eat tho grain
away from the hogs when we fed
them. The pigeons became such a
nuisance that we had to rid ourselves
of them.
I disposed of the island several
years ago to a Seattlo firm and I do
not know what the ultimate fate of
the pheasants was but I am certain
that they must still be plentiful
there, concluded Mr. McNaught.
R. W. Macfarlane and Frank P.
Clark, of Ymir.passed through Nelson
last evening on their way to {Singapore ; Joseph Pitre left on Sunday and
Joseph Manson, of Rossland, the
fourth man of the party, will leave
today. Tney will meet at the coast
proceeding to their destination together by the Empress of Japan. From
Singapore they will journey to the
native state of Kelantan, where their
work will be. They have been en
gaged by the Duff syndicate, an English company operating in the Malay
peninsuln, and will prospect along the
range of mountains which run down
to the termination of tho peninsula.
The climate is not a healthy one but
there are said to be good indications of
mineral in several portions of the
native state referred to. Mr. Macfarlane is a mining engineer and is
going out in thut capacity to work for
the company, the other go as prospectors.
Excavations on the site to be occupied by the annex of the postottl ce
wore commenced yesterday, and today
the oflice will be moved from its old
position out into the street where it
will be stationed nntil the completion
of tho work. As mentioned in yester-
duy's Miner it will probably bo several weeks before work can be commenced on tho main building owing
to tbe low water in the lake, making
it impossible to get the barges of
marble close into the city wharf
where the derrick is situated.

Corruption of Remount De-j
partment Again Under
London, March 18.���Tho debate this
evening in the house of Commons on
tbe motion of the Liberal leader, Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman,yesterday
for the appointment of a select com-
rr.itte to investigate the whole commercial history of the South African
war, including the contracts for the
purchase ol remounts, meats and
forage and the contracts for freight
and transportation, eallod out several
aerimonous exchanges of remarks.
Reginald McKenua (Liberal) commenting on the remount department
declared that widespread corruption in
the horses purchased had been dis-
losed in almost every country on the
Lord Stanley, financial secretary to
the War Office, interrupted Mr. Mc-
Kenna with an angry denial of a
specific charge regardiug the purchase
of horses in Spain. Be said the statement was maliciously false and proofs
of the assertion made were demanded.
Mr. McK'euiiu said he took his facts
from tho report of the comptroller and
auditor general. The imputation of
malice was wholly false, bnt it was
only   part   of   the, .jogus  defence   in
Inch the government was then
Mr.Lambton, Liberal unionist, ''ow
Sir Henry Campbell-Uannerman's fire
by declaring that tho leader of the
opposition, bv his reckless language,
had takon from muny people, the consolation of feeling that their relatives
who had died in South Africa, had
fallen honorably in the service of
their country.
To   this Sir Henry repiled   angrily,
I give the most complete and most
circumstatial denial to every word
that the honoiable gentleman has
said." This statement caused confusion in the house and cries of
'"withdraw," but Sir Henry refused
to withdraw his remarks and Mr.
Larahton said his language to Sir
Henry referred to methods ot barbarism and similar talk about the concentration camps and other matters.
The speaker, Sir William Couit
Gully, interrupting exclaimed, "Both
gentlemen are out of order." Mr.
Lambton thereupon apologized, but
said that utterances such as he had
quoted were gravely injuring the
soldiers in South Africa and the houBe
ought to demand an authoritative
declaration of the opposition's attitude on thiB question.
Mr.Mortou,advanced Liboral, joined
in the attack on the government. Ho
declared that the losses on transport
of each column in South Africn
amounted to from ��70,000 to ��100,000.
When challenged regarding his authority for the statement, Mr. Norton
said that Mr.Broderick,war secretary,
had ordered a departmental committee
to investigate the matter and had then
pigeonholed the evidence.
Sir Henry's motion was rrjeo'od by
a vote of 346 to 191, tho .big majority
eliciting loud ministerial cheers.

London, March 18.���Coincident
with the news of alarming rebellions
in three provinces of China, the
Foreign office here today issued a
voluminous blueboob dealiug with thc
protracted negotiations between
China and thc powers from Maron 28,
1901, to Sept. 7, 1901, when the final
protocol was signed. One striking
quotation, peculiarly apt to the present far eastern situation can bu extracted irom a despatch of tne British
ambassador at .St. Petersburg, Sir
Charles S. Scott, to Lord Lansdowne,
the Uritish foreign secretary, in
which Count Lamsdorf, the R'fsian
Foreign minister, is quoted as s .'ing
he was pleased at tho fact that the
llritish government was desirous of
hastening a return to normal conditions in China, but ne declared thc
possibilities of fresh outbursts of anti-
foreign fanaticism.
Throughout tho extended negotiations on the subject of the amount,
divsion aud method of payment of lhe
Chinese indemnity, Great llritain and
tho United States appeal on tne blue
book to bave worked hand in band,
though opposed by all the other
owners. After learning the adverse
attitude of tlie continental powers
towards the American proposition to
reduce the indemnity Jo ��40,000,000,
Lord Lansdowne instructed Sir Ernest
Satow, the Bntisn minister at lekin.
that tho figure errdd on the side of
1 berolily, though he was quite ready
jo agree to a more moderate reduction, Russia and other powers ttrenu-
ously held out for a joint international guarantee of the Chi new
This appears to have formed the
rock on which the powers almost
split. Lord Lansdowne refused to
hear of a guarantco and Sir Ernest
.Satow cablod as follows: The United
States is firmly opposed to any international guarantee, Mr. Kockhill, the
United States special commissioner,
states tbat the president is most
anxious tu bring about a reduction ir,
the indemnity. Personally Mr. Rock-
hill is disposed to abandon the limitation to lorty millions if the powers
would agree on a declaration iu favor
of reducing the amount.
In this, as in moat of the cardinal
points, Anglo-American diplomacy
triumphed, though the American proposal to submit the indemnity question
to The Hague court of arbitration met
with refusal on all sides including
Great llritain.
Gerald Lowlher, then secretary of
the Briiish Embassy at Washington,
now British minister to Chili, sent
an interesting despatch to Lord Lansdowne on June 10, 1901, saying that
Mr. Hill, assistant so-cretary of state,
had told him that the Russian and
Fronoh ambassadors wero strongly
and repeatedly urging the United
States not to oppose any incrcaso I n
the maritime customs of China and
that they wero also using every effort
to induce the United States to agree
to a joint guarantee loan. Mr. Hill,
according, to Mr, Lowlher, said that
he waB not agreeable to a general increase of the maritime Customs,
though he night agree to an increase
in the duties on ceitain articles, and
be told tbo ainbausadors of Fiance and
Russia that congress woula never
consent to assume the financial
liabilities of guaranteeing a loan.
Tho bluebook contains only ono important reference to Manchuria. Thc
British ambassador at St. Petersburg
writing to Lord Lansdowne quotes
Count Lamsdorf, April 12, 1901, as
Baying that the Czar adhered unswervingly to his intention, so frankly and
frequently dcclarod, to withdraw Russian troops nnd restore Manchuria to
its former Chinese administration so
soon as tne normal state of affairs and
the reinstatement at Pekin of a legitimate and independent central government, capable of maintaining order
in tbe empire, permitted the  Russian
The British minister at Pekin, July
2. 1901. summed up a long series of
Impel ia! decrees promulgated for the
purpobe of reforming abuses, by Haying: "They may be regarded as the
lirst step in the right direction. But
the decrees by themselves will not do
much to remedy the existing evils.
What lies at the root of tbe present
administration is tbe sale ot posts and
the merely nominal salaries which
compel the mandarins to accept irregular Eourco of income. If China succeeds in shaking off tbis incubus, she
will have achieved what nu other
nation, afflicted by a similar curse,
lias every jet accomplished."

Iu regard to the letter in The Miner
yesterday regarding thu advantages of
a measuring station for wood, so that
it would be under inspection,the sumo

conditions there was no provision in
the Municipalities act to allow of the
city's exercising such supervision.
Thore are only a few dealers in the
city who handle coal, but anyone is
at liberty to sell wood apparently,and
to keep track of all who brought it in
and to sec that it was measured would
be a difficult business. Tlie coul is all

take it to thu weighing station, hut

There is a considerable criticis'n of
the contract between the Oanadian
Northern railway and the provlnc,
and it is contended, and rightly, tuo
that too much land is to be given
under it. It is believed lhat the pro
posed land grant is excessive and is
considerably rrjoie than what the
people would oe willing give if they
were appealed tc and could vote on
the question. The clause exempting
the land of thc oompany from taxation while it is in its possession is
another objectionable feature, as if
the land is taxed, the same as private
holdings are, the oompany would be
willing to part with it sooner and
would accept a reasonable price for
it. If not taxed the company
could afford to hold possession of it
till the settlement and improvement of
the ureas adjicent to its holdings
would make the latter more valuable
The system of giving away large
areas of tne public domain and of
companies refusing to sell it for years
perhaps has retarded considerably the
development of Ilntish Columbia
This cuild be obviated by compelling
companies benefited by public grauts,
with certain reservations for tovvnsites
and for terminal facilities, to sell thn
land for the same price that is paid
thc government for similar land, If
this wero dine there would bo no
retardment of tho agricultural and
pastoral development of the country
and there would be no objections to
giving the public domain to aid bona
fide railroad enterprises. The grant
tho Canadian Northern amounts to
about eight millions of acres. The
Canadian Pacific railway already
owns about lour millions of acres in
Ko.itenay and Yale, being tho laud
grants for the several brandies of that
system running through these two
aistricts. These represent only a portion of the land that has been given
away to railway companies. The
grants take in so.ie of the best land
in the province.
It is time to call a halt to the indiscriminate and thoughtless gifts hy the
provincial government of thc heritage
of the people. Tho bid effects is seen
in the large quantities of farm products which haves to bo brought into
tbe piovince annually because farmers and stock raisers find it difficult to
purchase lands from the corporations
whioh own tbem, The bargain with
the Canada Northern I ail way company has to bo ratified by the legislature and before this is (lore either
the land graut should be cut down or
the provision should be put in the
grant compelling the oompany to accept government prices for thc land.
Wo are fostering the railway intei-
ests at the expense of the agncutural;
that Is to say, we are placing the land
in such �� position that its first cost
will prevent it from being occupied
for many years by tlio farmer, as ho
will go where the land is cheaper in
preference to settling in this province
where tbe corporations will exact as
high a price as possible. While Brit-
ah Columbia has considerable land
that is unfit for cultivation or stock
raising, still there aro large areas of
valley land now lying 'die which if it
could bo acquired ut reasonable rates,
would soon be yielding bountiful
crops or be used for cattle raising and
adding wealth to the province.
JamcB .7. Hill, whom Elbtrt Hubbard calls the strongest personality in
the United States, has the following to
say on the importance of agriculture:
"The railroad Interest in tbis country
are not the greatest, after all I The
agrijulti-i'il Interests are tho most important. They reps-rented one-half of
the population of tho United States,
one-half the capital, and about all
the patriotism, religion and feeling
there is."
While in llritish Columbia.owing to
the immense areas of mineral Hearing
territory, the mining industry is destined to be the paramount on��, agriculture should assume largo impoit-
ance, and nothing further should be
doue to handicap it in the way of
giving away the bist Ian'1 to railway
corporations. Railway      building
should be, and could be with mere
advantage to the commonwealth, encouraged in some other May. It is too
often tne ease that the heritage of the
people is bartered away for souie'hing
that is only a little better than a
mess of pottage.
In tho strife ui parties in the provincial leigslature it looks as if Ihe
question which has for jears been
considered one of the utmost importance, the exclusion of Orientals from
this province, will be no further advanced tban it was last session. Both
the government and the opposition
are committed to exclusion, or what
it is expected will mean practical
exculsion, the passing of au act on
the lines of what is known as the
Natal act. Such an act was passed,
and in operation it was found to be
effective, at the session of 1901, but
the Dominion government has seen fit
to disallow it. The matter again
came up in the form of an amendment
to the speech from the throne. It is
clear that a majority of tho members
of the legislature are in favor of re-
enactment and that a vast majority of
the people are, although it must be
admitted that there are some who conscientiously are not, and it seems unfortunate that difference of formality
should intervene to prevent the will
of the majority of tho people from
being carried out.
The argument of the Dominion government that the act should be ilis-
allowed for imperial reasons does not
seem to rest on a sure foundation. It
looks more likely that the action has
been taken rather in deference to the
supposed wish of the people of Eastern Canada, who as yet do not understand the important bearing of the
question on tlie future of British
Columbia at the present time, and if
the present rate of immigration continues will eventuality on that of the
whole of Canada. The similar act
passed in Natal was not disallowed
neither was a more stringent one
passed by tho colonies of Australia,
though the enactment of those
colonies are reviewed by the Imperial
government. In Australia Asiatics,
even if born as llritish subjects, are
not allowed to take up their residence
there. The fact is uncontrovered that
it is next to impossine for the Asiatic
raees to ever become assimilate.! witi
the Canadian people, they can, therefore, never become in mure than form
British subjects, nnd their continued
immigration wonld fasten on the
country a people whom we consider,
and who as we view things are, inferior to'u-s, and would build up in
thia province a social problem similar
to the, as yet, unsolvable problem of
the colored race in the southern states.
For a short timo without Orientals
there might be a little inconvenience
to some through the lack of people to
do certain kinds of work but surely
the ingenuity of the Canadian people
is sufficient to solve so small a difficulty. The people of Eastern Canada
built up that section without Mongolian labor.
Intimation has been given that the
governmont intends ^bringing in a
measure on similar lines to that passed a year ago and in ease it does it is
to be hoped 0at the friction of parties
will not prevent it frcm passing if it
will meet the desired end, the keeping out ot practically all Orientals.
In this matter it lies with the people
of this province to give any who may
nteifete to understand that the interests of British subjects are paramount
to the, as yet, theoretical assumption
of what would be the result in diplo-
matij rolations. That exclusion would
influence trade has been proved erroneous io the case of the United Staes
which has not found its trade with
China to have fallen off, but on tbe
contrary, to have irxreaseirremark-
ably, though for many years the
Chinese have been excluded from that

my own skill us well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she ii entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

Mr. Oallihor Discusses Proposed
Armories For His Riding.
British Columiba matters were before the House of Commons on March
10 when tbe appropriations for the
province were discussed. In the
course of the procedings it was shown
that British Columbia is now third in
the amount contributed to the
Dominion revenues, but it comes far
behind that proportion in the amount
of money expended wiihin the province. Hir Hiobert Tupper and W A.
Galliher spoke on this point and in
reply Hon. Mr. Taite said to wait till
next year. Among the items voted
were $2f>,000 for the Nelson post office,
bringing the total for tbat building
up to 1(40.000, and $12,000 for thu
Rossland building, making a total of
$41,050. There was a total of $30,700
for arniorieB which was made up oi
sums for repairs for those alieady
built and part for four new ones, at
Nelson, Revelstoke, Knslo and Kamloops. No arrangements have yet been
made for one at Ressland as that city
naa not provided a site, which has beon
the nsual practice in this province,
though not throughout the rest of
Canada. All these armories ore in
Mr Oalliher's district, and in tbe discission which arose he took an active
He said: I made the request for
tbem, and made it pretty strongly,
too. You must not forgot that the
district I renresent is nearly equal in
area to the Bettled part of the province
of Ontario. So, if I have foul
armories in my district it dots not
necessarily follow that they are very-
close together. We in British Columbia are in a different position from
the people of On'ario. A great part
of our country ia mountainous and
we require not only armories but
places where we oan drill summer and
I do not think that any honorable
gentlemen who bave been in British
Columbia will say that money spent
in armories in that province is not
well investetd. We are pretty well in
the wilds, but we have a few citizens
in that province who like to bave reasonable accommodations as well as
you in the east And Colonel Hughes,
wbo is a colonel in militia himself,
well knows that we sent from British
Columbia to the South African war
quite a number of men���probably a
larger number in proportion than
anv other pail, of Canada.
Col. Hughes: "And good men,
Mr. Galliher continued: And good
men, too. And we want to keep up
our credit. When wo have men enterprising enough to band together we
want to encourage them to do so. I
have been associated with thc militia
myself for a number of yoars, and I
can speak freely in the matter. 1
know what is necefsary, and I agree
with the suggestion thrown out by
Mr. Bennet (who had spoken earlier
in the debate) that they not only want
a place in whicb to store arms, but a
pi' co to drill in, and also a place in
whioh to meet for social intercourse
A place of this latter kind is very taking in a western city, because we
have lew places in those little western
towns where the men can meet together to read the newspapers and
magazines and have a little social
chat after their drill.
Now, I am pleased indeed with the
generosity of Mr. Tarte and Dr. Borden in giving us a drill shed in that
community. True, we pay very
heavily iuto the Dominion treasury
from the province of British Columbia, and we feel that in tho past wo
have not been getting what we are
entitled to. I do not know as I would
go so far as to say with one member
from British Columbia tbat we are
still complaining Wu say, howevsr,
that in proportion to tbe revenue we
pay into the Federal treasury the
expenditure made hy the Dominion in
that provinco is very small. Ilov-
evcr, I have nothing to complain of
in connection with th^se drill halls
tbat are being established in my
district. I thank the miuistei for
meeting my request in this matter.
I will say this, now while I am on
the subject, that in the town of Nelson where I live myself, the appropriation will not build a drill hall there,
even according to specifications, and
I call the special attention of Mr.
Tarte tu the fact, because I mean to
approach bim again for morn money
iu connection with the Nelson drill
ball, We have Riven in tll> town of
Nelson two lots within the fire limits,
and you all know there is a law
against building a certain class ot
building within tha fire limits. We
have givou two h.ts worth tour or five
thousand dollars as a free site to the
government for a drill hall. The hall
cannot be built cf wood, as I believe
is the present intention,for the reason
that the city will not permit it to be
built of wood. I am meroly throwing
out the suggestion, so that Mr. Tarte
may be prepared to see me come to
hirn again to ask for a sum in the
supplementary estimates which will
be sufilcient to allow us to put up
such a building as the city bylaws
will require within the fire imits.

The Queen of Hayti, the big colored
organisation which comes to tbe
Nelson Ope,a House tonight is a
musical comedy and not a minstrel
production. The difference in overy
resueot from tbat produced by any
colored company that has ever visit"- d
the west. Unlike most musical
comedies, it has a plot sufficiently
intricate to admit of many surprises.
Tbe action of the piece takes place
on tbo Isle of Hayti and is founded
on historical facts during tbe war
with the French in 1854 and during
the Spanish invasion.
Hcniiutte, "Queen of Hayti," with
the assistance of Gen. Toussant La
Overture, Napolean Bonaparte, a
stranded nebrew and u Tramp are the
principal characters. The artistic
work of Frank Kirk, as Tod Hunter,
the tramp, and Harry Gillam as Blot-
sky, the stranded Hebrew, is said to
be thc cleverest character work ever
done hy colored artists. Around these
two characters centre the comedy of
the piece. Every opportunity is
afforded by tho various situations for
the introduction of clever specialties
in a legitimate manner. The piece
abounds with catcbj music, tuneful
choruses and novel drills.
Thu scenery is ail special, and the
costumes are within keeping of the
time, 1854, giving the effect of the
times of Napoleon. A grand chorus of
thirty trained voices is carried in
addition to the specialists.
During the action of tbe piece, a
number of high class specialties will
be introduced by "Craton" the
world's greatest juggler and hoop
whirler. There are also the "Grundy
Trio" in their latest song and dance
The sale of seats for the Queen of
Hayti opened at 10 o'clock yesterday
and over 100 seats have been disposed
of. The company which is a large
cilored organization are coming in
from Grand Forks by a speoial train
which is expected to reach Nelson
about noon today. They will make a
street parade at 2.30.

The True Way to Get Well
Tbe tales told of how food will
make people well are nearly always
interesting. A young lady in Cleveland, 0., says'. "I had an attack of
nervous prostration and Snail; had to
give up and gu to bed. Did not know
what t. as tbe matter with me. My
Physician told me that I should take
a trip, and a favorite Auntie, who was
at that time a visitor at my home,
urged mo 10 return with her. The
doctor aaid I might get out of bed in
a few days, and so, although I was
still very weak. I made the journey,
which was a short one,to Cleveland.
There I gavo out again and had
neuralgia b-uily in addition to my
other nervous troubles. While in this
condition I was urged t.j change mv
food and try Grape-Nuts, I had tiied
Grape-Nuts at homo but did not use
them right, having put hot water on
them, hut uud r thu advice of a friend
I started in on Grape-Nuts and cream
or very rich milk. That was a different story and I enjoyed the food
In a few days I began to get strong
and lost tho desire to lio down. I forgot to tell you that I had been suffering also from dyspepsia, This gradually left when I had Grape-Nuts Food
for breakfast and supper.
Shortly after, I began to put on
llesh and went up from 11.1 pounds to
IM 1-2 in about six weeks. When I
returned home all my friends remarked on my improved appearance, and
the vigor and strength I had renamed
paid me well for mv food experiment.
In addition to strength of body 1
noticed B remarkable impiuvement in
my mental strength. It was a pleasure to me to read ard think and great
big worrits that would have put roe
jo bed in my former oondition slipped

Many     Spectators   Witness   Exciting
Ping I'ong Games.
The   ping   pong tournament, which
has   been   going   ou for the last   two
days   at   Fraternity   hall,   under   the
auspices of the Hospital    Ladies'   Aid
bas   proved    to be an unqualified success, and reflects great   credit   on   the
executive ability of   those   who   were
istrumental   in   getting   it   up   and
trying it to such   a successful issue,
any expressions of regrot were heard
at   the   tournament   had   not   been
���ranged to last a week as there is   no
doubt from the increasing   number  of
spectatois who have attended and   the
keen interest displayed in the games
that a week would not have been any
too long. As it is the linals will nil
be played off this eveing at une table
to permit of a larger number of spectators than wero able to witness the
games latt night. Outside of the suc-
ess fiom a financial standpoint,which
has gone   considerably    beyond   what
was expected by the organizers of ihe
tournament, the affair will undoubtedly be looked back ou as one of the
pleasantest social affairs of tho winter. The tournatiie.it also developed
the fact that Nelson has a consider*
11I1I2 number of really good players in
tllis Ramo whiih is attracting the
attention of so large a number of tbe
society c'asfes of the woild.
A gentleman who had evidcnlly rot
made a lUOceS! at the game said that
11 the street those who were addicted
to ping pong could lie delected by the
way they swing tlieir heads from side
fo side and also by a peculiar looseness of the lower jaw. However, from
���ratobing the game it apeared that the
way tho mouth was held must have
some effect on the play.
Of the judges, Aid. Selous was the
only one who seemed somewhat uneasy and bashful, but nevertheless did
his duty well.
II W.F. Pollok played the showiest
game among thu gentlemen and appears to (fund a cood chance of coining iu first on the championship, E.
J. Crickmay plays a lightning game,
and except when his hall struck the
net, baffled frequently all who played
against him. D. M Lay played a
steady quiet game, relying on a system of perfect guarding ard tiring his
opponent down, aud between him and
Pollok there will probably he an interesting game tonight. George
Kydd plays a good heavy game and
several oilier gentlemen also showed
much skill, Several of tho boys
played surprisinlgy well, Leo Brown
defeating some good players among
the gentlemen. Of the ladies there
were so many good players ttiai it
would be difficult to make comparisons but Mrs. R. M. Bird, Mrs. Pollok, Miss J. Hedley and Miss Gurd
wero among the bsst and will likely
play in the linals.
lu the middle of an exciting game
last night, when tho interest was at
its keenest pitch, some one turned the
electric switch and the hall was suddenly plunged in darkness. A simultaneous "Oh!" went up in nil directions. Thu lights, however, were
soou turned on and the game went on
as before. Mayor Fletcher was in
close proximity to the swiih when it
was turned cff.but denied that ho was
the guilty paity.
