THE WAY OF
THE CROSS
Fine Scries of Pictures In
stalled in Catholic
Church.
They Represent the Way cf
the Cross.���Solemn Dedication Service.
During Ihe week a series of beaut i-
ful pictures has been placed in tint
church of Mary Immaculate,tcprescnt-
Ing the Stations of the Cross. Rev.
Father Ferland had celebrated Ihe service of the installation and this was
somewhat of an event in the history
of the congregation,for the tcason that,
next lo the dedication of a Church,
there is no more solemnly Impressive
service In the ritual of the church
than that set down for the ceremony
attending the introduction of the .Stations of the Cross.
There are fourteen pictures in all,
the significance of the series is given
below In Kev. Father Ferland's own
words. The scenes each are 40x20
inches over all, and the collection is a
work of art. The pictures proper are
oil prints and in perspective, coloring and expression, are valuable pictorial descriptions of one of the most
tragic events of history. The grouping of the pictures is probably of the
best in the world of art, The frames
are of solid oak, with carvings and
turnings of the ��ame material. They
are excellent pieces of handicraft and
were manufactured iu Nelson by Angus
McDouguls. and decorated by Fred
Bradley. Referring to the .Stations
of tbe Cross, Rev. Father Ferland
gives in substance the following description: "Tho way of Ihe Cross,"
is the name given to the 14 stations of
the cross which depict the way aloi'g
which our Redeemer passed hearing
his cross fiom Pilate's palace to
Mount Calvary. They are 'ometlmcs
ereuted in churches, at oilier times in
the open on thc slope of a hill, aid
occasionally in cemeteries.
"It is said that th? way of the cross
owes its origin to the mother of (toil.
Tradition says that she was found
often to walk in the steps of her son
to Calvary, pausing at the spots marked by some special incident. The early
Chiistians Hocked in crowds to the
holy place to follow the via Crucis,
but when in the middle ages, the holy
land fell into the hands of the heathen,and the devout pilgrMus could only
visit the scenes of our Lord's suffering at the risk of their liberty and often of their lives, the stations were
erected iu churches aud enriched by
tbe pope with large indulgence. St.
Francis of Assisi.and the religious order he founded, contributed greatly to
spread this devotion."
CANUCKS MA OK A  HIT.
Milner Delighted   With Canadian Recruits For S. A. Constabulary.
(SPECIAL TO Till'. MINER.)
Ottawa, May 11.���The secretary of
state for the colonies cables the governor-general : "Ilis Majesty's government has received with much pleasure the following message from, the
high commissioner for South Atriea:
'The inspector general of South African Constabulary reports most favorably on the Canadian recruits. Tbe
average physique of the men is splendid and they seem to be particularly
well fitted for their duties. Regret
that owing to my departure I- have
not had time to see them myself. Milner.'    (Signed)    Chamberlain."
in   which   tbe   attiaetion  was put on
the boards.
For the encouragement of the little
folks it might be stated the individual pei'lormers were each entitled to
worthy mention for the excellence of
the performance, which was ono that
would have puzzled many of the adult
Spectators to emulate without a comedy of errors. The little amateurs
are certainly deserve encouragement
and It is to lie hoped that the citizens
of Nelson will manifest their appreciation of a good thing by giving them a
bumper house when they repeat the
entertainment on Tuesday evening In
aid of the Nelson public library which
is at present uufoiInnately dependent
upon voluntary suppoit, and is suffering   from financial depression.

SUCCESSFUL MATINEE.
Children's Fancy Dress Concert
Draws Another Ilig House.
The children's fancy dress matinee
given in the opera house yesterday
afternoon, under the auspices of tho
Presbyterian Ladies' Aid, was a repetition of thc success of Wednesday
ovening. The building was darkened,
and the electric lights turned on,
which enhanced the striking effects of
costumes and tableaux, which arc
some of the special features of the entertainment. Mcsdames Arthur, Mc-
Culloch, and Rason.and Miss Kynoch
have reason to be pardonably proud of
their success in the training of the
juvenile performers and  the   manner
Captain Kurtz of the Ymir 'lets a
Medal.
London, May 11.���The Royal Humane Society's medal has been awarded, under unique circumstances, to
Captain Kutrz for saving life at Kootenay lake, Hritish Cnlubinia. The
tug Procter was taking a barge loaded with cars across the lake when one
of the three men in charge was accidentally klocked overboard. A
strong gale was blowing, and there
was u heavy sea. The man was unable to swim, luil he held the low-
line and kept his head above water.
Captain Kurtz sprang into the water
and lashed tho man to the line, the
remaining man steering and keeping
the tug moving so that the cable was
taut and the men were kept alloat.
After a heroic struggle lasting over nn
hour Cap,Sin Kurz managed to pass
the man along the line to Hie tug uud
rescue hi in.
Victoria, May 11.���In a speeoh last
night at the dinner giveu by the
speaker to the members when an address was presented to Hon. Mr. Turner by the members of the liouse, W.
W. II. Mclnnes practically apoligized
for the. dismissal ot the Turner ministry by bis father, saying that if the
same circumstances arose at the present time he doubted if the same couise
would be followed. This statement
was made in connection with the remarks of a number of the opposition
members to the effect that their preelection views regarding Mr. Turner
bad undergone a change since they
entered the bouse and became acquainted with .him.
The statement of Mclnnes, Mr. Turner said, he accepted very gladly.
Turner was very much affected by the
address and in outliniug the policy
lie intended following as agent-general said the office would be conducted
on conservative lines and with the object of making all information authentic and   devoid   of boom features.
It is the opinion of some here that
three portfolios will be opened for
Lastin, Brown and Mclnnes through
the retirement of Turner and the letting out of Wells and Prentice.
The house prorogued at II o'clock
tonight. Owing to the short notice
and peculiar hour Ihe proceedings
were very tame. The duties of the
lieutenant-governor, who is still in
California,were dischar^eJ hy the administrator, Judge Walkein.

COMMITTEE IN   NELSON YESTERDAY���A STRONG   PROGRAMME
OF ATTRACTIONS.
the fast steamer kaslo will
carry nelsonites to the
celebration.
II. A. Blackburn of Kaslo, manager
of the Kootenfau, and Donald C.
Kurtz, mining recorder, and secretary
of the Kaslo Victoria Day celebration
committee, arrived in the citv yesterday in connection with the sports lo
bo held in Kaslo on the ..Mill of   May.
Elaborate arrangements are being
made to make it a big day. The
chief event will be a baseball
match between Kaslo and Rossland.
The Kootenians are confident tbey
have the strongest baseball team hi
West Kootenay and that tbeir nine
can bent any baseball aggregation
which can be put up against them.
The Rossland 003. have already
agreed to meet Kaslo at Kaslo on the
34th and a fast game is anticipated.
In addition to this they hold a sailing cup whicli thev are anxious to
win a second year so as to afford them
the opportunity of trying to retain
it permanently after next yoar. A
second prize is offered in the sailing
race of a kodak. There will be the
usual Caledonian games and general
sporting contests with valuable prized
for each. A football match between
Trail and Kaslo is another drawing
card while a third and greater attraction as far as Nelson is concerned is
that the Nelson Odd Feiloivs have
chartered the S. S. Kaslo, which will
make her first trip to Nelson on that
day and the excursionists will travel
on the fastest and newest boat on the
lake. A large contingent of Nelsonites will take in the Victoria Day celebration.
HOTEL CHANGE-
After the first of June the Royal
Hotel, now owned and managed by
Sol. Johns, will be under a new management. J. Lovell Smith of Strathcona cigar manufacturing fame, has
taken a lease of the property and will
assume control on that day.
PATRIOTIC   LIFE.
Confederation Life Settled Policy With
a Premium Unpaid.
An interesting life insuronce transaction has rcently developed in connection with the Confederation Life
insurance company, of which M. E.
Parry of Nelson is the general agent.
The incident to some extent contradicts the harsh things frequently uttered against corporations in general.
The case is that of E. C. Mackintosh, 1 Hunch) of Rossland, son of ex-
Lieutenant-Governor Mackintosh, who
went to South Africa as a member of
Strathcona's Horse. Before nis departure Mr. Parry ".wrote him up"
$r>,000. Being al the front when the
second premium was due, according
to arrangement made by the corporation, with Canadian soldiers actually
on the field, the insurance was carried by the company, making tbe unpaid premlium a first charge upon the
policy as long as the policy holder
was at thc front. On January 2ti, of
tha present year it will be remembered that "Bunch" Mackintosh died at
Pretoria. Application was made for
the amount of the insurance and ves-
terday Mr. Parry received the gratifying intelligence from the company's
actuary that Hie insurance will be
paid, when the proper forms nre filled
in. This is all the more worthy of
commendation, as the English companies, pursued an entirely different
course of action, increasing the premiums of the men at the front naturally
on a purely business basis, requiring
increased security with increased
risks.

ATHABASCA   PBGORAMMB.
Army Should   Seek   Virgin
Fields for Their Religious Work.
Tlie principal topic under discussion
at the Methodist conference yesterday
was the alleged trespass by the Salvation Army on the Methodist mission
at Port Simpson. The facts of tho
mutter are that some years ago the
denomination founded a mission at
Port Simpson nnd kept np the work
there under vicissitudes of vuiious
kinds until a nourishing mission was
established. It was at this stage that
the Salvaiton Army entered thc arena
and stationed several officers at Port
Simpson. The gaudy uniforms and
the drums made a big hit with the
Indian converts and many of them deserted the Methodists and joined the
army. Naturally the older denomination objected. The army people undertook none of the labor and hardship incidental to securing a foothold
in a pagan settlement. They took no
part in preparing the field lor the harvest, but happened along when the
grain was ready for reaping and captured the converts who were susceptible to the attractions of red jerseys
and big bass drums. This course
of action is resented. The Methodists
encourage and support the work of the
Salvation Army everywhere and are
glad to see the army directing its attention to the mission field. It is
held, however, that the army should
go into the numerous settlements
where no regular work is carried on
by any of the denominations operating among the Indians thus avoiding
a clash with established missions, on
the ground that the sense of rivalry
likely to be aroused under such circumstances' could not fail to be prejudicial to the best interests of the
work among the aborigines.
The facts of the case will be brought
to the attention of the general mission board of thc church in Canada
and this body will confer with the
officers of the army at thc latter's
headquarters in Toronto, the object
being to induce the army to transfer
its post to another field Should the
effort to secure an amicable arrangement fail tbe entire facts will be laid
before the Methodists of Canada and
the effect will probably be the withdrawal to a large extent of the generous financial assistance hitherto extended to the aimy by members of the
denomination.
(By The Miner's Representative in
Conference.)
A full attendance of ministers assembled for business at yesterday's afternoon session. On the platform
were the following: Rev. W. II. linr-
raclongli, B. A., the president; ex-

Development Work Exclusively For
Next Two Mouths.
E. Nelson Fell, manager of the Athabasca, has made the following statement witli regard to the company's
programme: "In order to strengthen
the position and facilitate the future
working of the mine it has been decided to curtail for two or three
months the ore production and push
on development work. This course has
been rendered advisable from the fact
that the shortness of water during
the past four months has rendered development impossible. Advantage of
this temporary pause in our wotking
arrangements will ho taken to work

ARMY'S    NEW    BARRACKS
FURTHER. INFORMATION REGARDING THE SALVATION ARMY'S
BUILDING SCHEME.
BUILDING OK BRICK   AND STONE
��� PLANS TO BE   DRAWN   IMMEDIATELY.
Thc following additional information regarding the future schemes to
the local corps of tbe Salvation army
will be of interest to Sunday rend-
ers. Before the end of the present
year the Salvation army expect to
have the most commodious church edifice in Nelson. Thirteen years ago
General Booth established what ia
uow known as "Self Denial Week,"
and hy this alone the Salvation army
aised in Great Britain 8.4,1 Hi. Last
year the army raised the sum of 81,-
!.(I0,()I!0. Since Lire Inauguration of
this scheme in Canada Hie army has
raised 8230,108, Of this sum $88,034
was raiBed last year. The money thus
obtained is spent in the establishment
of rescue homes, refuges, etc., antl
army barracks. The annual self denial week of thc army will be inaugurated on May 25 to June 1, throughout Canada, lint in order to facilitate
thc scheme the local corps has adopted, the army is at present pushing
their eff.its, combining the self denial and building scheme as the object
of their work during the uext few
weeks.
It is the intention Immediately plans
arc completed to erect a biick and
strne army barracks, on the piesent
site. The building will contain un
auditorium with a seating capacity for
600 people in addition to a smaller
room to hold 200 people. Above these
will be the officers' quarters.
Permission has been received from
bead quarttrs to proceed with the
work immediately and Major liar-
grave is expected in Nelson in the
very near future to initiate Hie scheme
and perfect plans. The "target"
aimed at by the local corps foi Self
Denial week and the building scheme
is 81,000, and a "self denial clock"
will be in operation in Ihe barracks,
indicating the financial chronology nf
the endeavor.
LOWERING THE WALK���
The sidewalk on tlie north of Siliea
street from Ward to Stanley street is
being lowered to the grade of the
street, thanks to the enterprise of VV,
McLean who has had erected on the
Ward and Siliea street fionts of his
property a retaining wall eight feet
high, which is a marked Improvement
to the property.
Any vestige of doubt as to the 0.
P. R.'s Intentions concerning the
Lardo railroad has been dissolved by
the letting of the contract for the
work In Larson, Welch at .Stewart.
Pat Welch, one of the members of Ilia
firm, was in Nelson yesterday en
route to Lardo where he will make
preparations for the commencement
of woik at once. The piesent weather in the district is excellent for the
starling of the work ami tlie contract
will be linished at a comparatively
early date in the fall. It is presumed that Mr. Welch will hung much of
his plant sernss froiu|Oregon where it
lias been located for a couple of years
since the Columbia .. Western line
was completed. Just now business iu
the railroad construction line isdecid
edly quiet on buth sides of tho line
which doubtless accounts for the big
firm going after a contract they would
probably have ignored in the palmy
days of the tiadu. The work on the
Lardo line should be carried on rapidly. Already a railroad slip has
been built, this work having been
done by James McDonald and Poupore
A. McVeigh. The pontoon for the
slip was built at the C. P. shipyards
here and towed up to Lardo a few
days since. The company has delivered a quauitty of steel at the lake terminus of thc road and the ties foi the
grade constructed two years ago nie
cut and delivered along the line.
Doubtless the lirst step will be the
laying of the steel to facilitate tbe
handling of supplies, material and
plant from the lake to the poiut
where the new work is to start. If
this supposition is correct the welcome note 'if the locomotive will be
beard in the dlstrct at au early date,
although it is not likely that transportation facilities will be reduced to
a business basis until some time after
the first section of the road is in actual use.
The advent of the railroad will
bring about a new era in the history of the Lardo. The number of
mining properties that "ill be enabled lo enter the producing stage
v/ill he largely increased and an Impetus given to husmess in all lines
that cannot fail to bring about several years at least of prosperity. Report hus it, However, that he town of
Ferguson will rue Hie day when the
railroad comes In. The reason given
for this statement is that the Silver
Cup, Triune and other properties

A BRILLIANT IDEA���
Everything is organized in Nelson
and now clubs arc being promoted
cvety day. Thc latest is one suggested
by a literary lady of Nelson lo be
known lis the "Micawber Club.'' The
necessity of this organization has
arisen mainly from Ihe fact that there
are ut the present time such a huge
number of people in the city "waiting
for something to turn up." All ladies
and gentcmen. who aro not Chinese
or Japs, arc eligible for membership,
the very suggestion of fees Is scorned
and all ritual or passwords are discarded. Telegraph posts and empty
doorways aro convenient meeting
places and two is a quorum. There are
no officer?, except chairman, who is
ex-ollien entitled to that position if
first on the ground. Numerous meetings arc held daily.

will be constructed for landing ore

this condition of a affairs, that the
general activity anticipated may result In Ferguson growing as rapidly
as any oilier point in the district.

THAT   laEKINEKY.
The Canadian    Mining Review publishes   full   reports   of    the    speeches     of     the     delegates    who   recently   waited    upon     the    Government
at  Ottawa, to   represent   the   mining
conditions in this Province and to ask
for   Such assistance   as   might be necessary   to overcome   the   disabilities
under wliich the mining industry was
laboring.    We desire   particularly   to
refer to the speech   made   by Mr. Buchanan, of Kaslo.    That it waB to the
point may be    taken   for   granted;   it
would not be Mr.   Buchanan's  speech
otherwise. He took tbe listening Ministers all over   the   ground,    and   explained exactly how the industry   hud
fared   from   the   beginning,    At   one
time it was prosperous, but there cauie
evil days,for which ncilliei  the mines
nor the people working them were responsible.    "In 1808," he   suid, "tlie
price   of   silver   suddenly    fell     from
Si.Ill per on, to nr, cents,   and later to
fil'j   cents, its   coinage   value   being
81.80.    Then the duty on   lead   going
into the U. S. was raised by the Ding-
ley tarilT from   SlTi per   ton upon lead
in ore,   lo 830 pei  ton, and   fiom   820
per ton upon lead iu smelted   b.llion,
to   818.50 per ton.      Then   the British
Columbia   Legislature cut   down   the
length of the mine shift   from   ten to
eight hours, and there was a  yeiir   nf
dead lockup on the question of the readjustment of the rale of  pay.    Each
of   these   shucks   prostrated  for  the
time being the silver-lead   mining industry, ar.d fruin each of them   it   recovered, the   mine   owners adjusting
themselves 8s best they could   to  the
changed conditions."
We could not help the Dingley   tariff, which dealt   us   a bad blow,   but
our Legislature   might have hesitated |
to make bad worse by cutting in with
that disturbing   legislation.    The   industry   survived   all   this,    however,
and again started on a fairly prosperous   career.    The   labor   trouble   was
settled in April of l'.lOO, but as if possessed with   aa   spirit   of   recklessness
aud destruction the  British Columbia
Legislature in   .luly   following "doubled the tax upon   output,    increasing
it from one   to   two per   cent."   Tho
Dingley tan IT and  the   labor   trouble
were   not   enough,   but the   industry
had to be further harassed   by the deliberate action of our own Legislature
in   imposing  an   additional   burden,
"Yet,"     continued   Mr.    Buchanan,
"from the time that the mines resumed, until the end of the   year,   chiefly
owing to the fact that the Ht. Eugene,
the    North   Star,   and   the   Sullivan
mines in Kast   Kootenay, for the lirst
time  entered the lists as   large   shippers, thc output went to figures much
In excess  of   those   of   any   previous
yeur.    There was   scarcely  a cloud in
the sky as retards the outlook for the
present year, until   the announcement
came that the   United   States smelters
would   not    treat   British    Columbia
ores.''
It is not recorded that Ministers reminded the delegates that for much of
the evil/nillicling their industry theii
own     liovcriiinent     and    Legislatuie
were responsible, and that before cum.
ing   to  Ottawa   for  redress it,   would
only   bo   fitting   to have some sort of
reckoning with them.    It was open to
Ministers   to   say this, and exception
could not be taken to it.    But the latest calamity   gave  such a serious   aspect to tlie situation that   the   minor
disabilities    were   forgotten.    It was
recognised that the   industry was   in
sore straits, from which  it was necessary to extricate it.    If   we   are to bu
at the mercy   of   American combines,
we  may as well   close  our   mines   at
once.    It   bus  been   understood   that
Ministers promised to take Immediate
measures for relief, tut at this   writing it is not known that anything has
been done.    We   quote   further   from
Mr. Buchanan's   speech, not   because
the matter is   particularly  new or lie-
cause its publication   now   will   have
any effect on   (iovernment  or   Parliament; but in order that  we   may   all
be so tilled   with the subject,   and   so
impicssed with   the   vital Importance
of it, tbat there   can be no mistaking

tlie sentiment of those on the spot.
It is essential to the industry that
facilities shall be established for re-
lining Canadian lead in Canada. Thc
development of the immense wealth of
the Kootenays cannot be   left depend-
.. as it is now, ou   the   whim,   the
the
greed     of    foreign
caprice,   01
trusts:
"With pig lead cheap and abundant
in Canada, our sheet lend will be rolled, und our lead pipe.will    be   drawn
in Canada  and the li.OUO tons of   lead
annually mixed into paint  in   Canada
will be   corroded   at home,   although
probably sonic slight rearrangement of
the tariff may be necessary   to   bring
that about.  At present lead as it comes
out   of   the mine   is    wortli   slightly
less than nothing.    If the mine  manager hud the silver out of it,  he could
let it go over the dump, but   unfortunately to a>el the silver   lie   must haul
it lo the   railway,   and   pay   railway
freight upon il and pay foi    having it
smelted and for having the silver lak-
���n out   of   it   in a  relinciy.    So   this
lead whicli   is   worth nothing at   the
mine   goes through   a   United   States
Smelter and a United   States refinery,
and to the Atlantic coast of the United States and lo London, anil   is there
corroded anil becomes raw white lead,
fit for   paint,    'then   a portion   of   it
comes out   around   the   Horn  to Victoria, and is worth there in a   wholesal* way 8 cents per  pound,   finally a
small fraction   of   it  comes   up   into
the mining camps,   and we  who  live
there liny it   at 13 cents   per   pound.
This is au extreme case,   but it represents what   on the whole we are   now
doing.    Wc are giving   away this raw
material and buying   back   in   manufactured forms after it has   made  tho
ciicuit of half  thc   globe, at   least   a
part of it, and we are paying not only
for all the skill and labor that the foreigner has  bestowed   on   it, but   the
freight   bill   that     has   accumulated
against it its well."
a wide field there is for entertainment
in the facts concerning Canadian railways'.       __________ I
A Vancouver  member, Mr. Tatlow,
moved to amend the Loan Bill to provide that the   contract   for the Coast-
Kootenay     railway   should  be   made'
with a company   independent   of   the  FlFSt  TJlliOIl
Canadian Pacific, in  order that   there
might be competition.    This   wus opposed by the   member for Slocan   and
the   member   for   Nelson.    The   time
will probably   come when it   will   be
interesting to remember this,  anil for
that reason wo make a note of it here.

The member for Nelson took part in
tbe debate on the Loan Bill, Here
is part of his ..peech :
"The Nelson av Port   Sheppard railway is 50). miles long.     It is   said   to
have OOHt   82,745,413.17   or   845,700   a
mile,    it is a well known fact that its
share   capital   was    not paid   for   in
cash, and that   of   the   sum   realized
from the sale of its bonds, at   least   u
tilth, was set apart to meet future interest payments.  That instead of costing 145,Ttlll a mile, the  actual   cost of
building and equipping   the Nelson a.
Fort Sheppard railway was uot lo exceed 8S0;000 a mile.    Tbe bonded debt
of the road is   81,500,000,  which bears
six   per cent,  interest.    Thu   interest
requirements of the road arc therefore
800,000 u year.    Last year the operating expenses    were   804,668,64,   which
makes a total of 8154,063.54 that  had
to he provided for last year. The gross
earnings of the road were 8107,088.80,
which leaves it   deficit   of   846,978.74.
Where did tho money   come   fiom   to
meet this dcli'j.it, for it   was   met?    It
came from   the   money realized  from
(he   sal"   of   tho bonds   of   the road,
money thai is returned as having been
spent in Constructing   and   equipping
tlie road."

Ves,August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using nny
tiling else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa-'ure, etc.
They used August Flower t(, clean ont
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, iu liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale by W. V.
Teetzel & Co.' Oct Greens' Prize Almanac.

WISE HOTEL MAN.
wife rui in,,, Kijrhl.
All hotel men.as a rule, arc healthy,
but once in a while they are subject
to stomach trouble like the ordinary
mortal, and it is interesting to know
what they do to provide themselves
with proper food. In the case of Mr.
MoKee of Hie Wheeler Hone, Howard,
S. II., he finally got down to Giape-
Nuts Food alone, and lived on it for a
little over six months. He speaks of
some wheat food and other cereal thai
he could not digest, bnt lirape-Nuts
is pro-digested and easy for the weakest kind of a stomach, so that lie got
well on it.
He writes at length, giving 11 description of his years of sickness and
his tlnul cure by food. He says he had
become completely discouraged as lie
conl.I not retain any food and digest
it. Fi Daily his wife heard of Grape-
Nuts hood and urged him to eat some
of H and nothing else, lie says, "I
.quickly began to Rain in flesh, anil
my skin took on another color. I
stuck to drape-Nuts and nothing else
for over six months. 1 gained 25
pounds, begun to sleep naturally and
have gotten quite well.
After a while 1 begun to eat plain
food again and felt no distress. The
Grape-Nuts regulated uiy bowels and
cured me of the old headache."
The makers do uot advise the use nf
Grape-Nil IS alone, except ill extreme
cases like this. It is better, as a rule,
to make the breakfast of Ibrce or four
heaping tcnspoonfuls of Crape-Nuts
with some good rich cienni, together
with a little cooked fruit and some
Postum Pood Coffee. At midday bave
a little meal and vegetables, and at
night have the same meal us the breakfast. This sort of a diet will cure
stomach and nervous troubles in '.ill
cases out ol 100.

and Christian societies, and the writer
while not joining Ip the slurs still Is
not a member of any Lord's Duy Alliance or church, but the bead of u family and while be believes as do all,
that a man should he allowed to
spend his Sunday as he likes, still
ihst man should have sufficient tolerance for the opinion of others to spend
the game players' Sundays at the
Park or some other place where the
recognized opinions of a very large
class ol the citizens would not be
shocked und their boys led into temptations that give pain and heartfelt
worry to their parents,'
The remarks of the writer of the
letter of tlie Sth instant concerning
saloons are good, but it is poor argument lo urge the continuance of one
evil while you are fighting another;
and be must nol forget that, in making these remaiks he is throwing mud
at his friend not ours, because that
saloon beeper, (the subject of his
harsh criticism) is loud in his praise
of tlie Sunday game players and just
as severe and bigoted in his remaiks
concerning his fellow citizens who
wisli a Christian Sunday as is "Anti-
llumbug. " Do not destroy your foi
lowing or be ashamed of your own
class, stand together so that those
who want a moderately civilized town
may see who you are and what you
are. HUMBUG.

These goods are from. McPherson & McCumtnon. He actually smiles out loml. He is more than pleased to think he has
now before him everything that is new and fresh, and thoroughly enjoys the thought. Aflcr he is through he tells her to buy only
from the new firm.    Everything has that rich, new, fresh llavor which tempts the most delicate appetite,
We take great pride in saying we arc handling nothing bul fust-class goods, and, as wo said before, we arc in a pos-ition to
sell them as low as inferior goods are sold, simply because wc know where and how to buy. We have studied the markets on
every side, and feel safe in saying we have profited thereby, and intend sharing same with our customers in sending out only A-i
goods.
Our stock is not all here yet, but there is enough here to keep us going until the balance arrives, which will be early this
week.    We will then have several new lines which wc will tell you about when you call.
Don't forget the fact that Tea and Coffee will he our specially. Wc are giving this line particular attention, and are

AliOIJT SUNDAY   GAMES.
E.ior Miner,���One cannot read the
letter published in the issue of this
paper of the Sth instant, which waB
evidently written by tho champion of
Sunday game players in the heart of
the city, anil consider his criticisms
on those whom be is pleased to call
"intolerant" (because they differ
from him and his class) without realizing keenly that after alll there is a
tremendous amount of Intolerance and
perhaps selfishness in the make up of
these critics, Tbe whole issue is that
a very large class of citizens desirous
of having a quiet Sunday at their
homes and more desirous of raisiug
their children to respect the proper observance of the Sunday and being
alarmed at the probable results to
their families if not permitted so to
do, simply ask that within the city
limits there be comparative quiet;
tbey do not for one moment say to
those who wish to play games, that
stroll cannot be done anywhere, but
they say that game players should be
tolei ant enough to not insist upon
playing within the city limits, near
tbe homes of the citizens and within
hearing of the churches. The Sunday
players on the other band say we
know our conduct offends you, that
you consider it dangerous to your
children's best interests,we also know
tbat it shocks tbe accepted ideas of
the older portions of tbe Dominion,
namely, every place outside of pion
eel towns, that it would not he allowed 111 seventy-five per cent of tbe
towns of the nation, hut wc are "tolerant,"' we aie wise, and we aie go
ing to override you. your desires, youi
fears as to your families, the idea of
older and more populous places, we
scout the churches and their opinions,
wo care not whom we shock, and iu
face of the city council and all else
we will force our conduct upon the
public; this position is urged and
backed up by young men and (may it
he said with regret) some family
men. who in at least seventy five
eases out of one hundred bave been
differently raised in life, nnd in conscience, and know that they are doing
positive wrong and outraging their
own better opinions.
The action taken in the council by
the four coui'cilloi'H has the backing
of the solid men of this city and your
correspondent signing as "Anti-Hum
bug" may consider himself clever in
his   slurring   remarks as to   churches
