Nelson,   British  Columbia, Wednesday,   February 26, 1902
Eleventh  Year
A. REVIEW
OF MINING
Bureau of Provincial Information Issues an Interesting
Pamphlet.
It Tells of Progress Made by
the Industry During
1901.
The bureau of provincial information has issued a general review of
mining in British Columbia for the
year 1001 in the shape of a pamphlet
oi 04 pages. The matter in the book
is taken from the YeBr Book of 1802
and is intended to supply the wants of
the olllee of the agent-gcneial in
London, Eng., and to give general
information to enquiries respecting the
mining resources of the province,until
the annual report of the minister of
mines is available. The latter being
a large and important publication,
necessarily dealing wilh mining id
detail, demands greater care and a
much longer period for production,
more especially in respect to mechanical requirements. The present publication deals In briel with the mineral
���characteristics of each district, affords
a brief review of progress and an indication of possibilties. It has the
following to say of the Nelson
division:
In   the   case   of   Nelson,   while   in
sevoral diretions  developments  of  a
most important  character have  taken
placo during the year, there have also
been   several   notable   mishaps    and
company failures.    The  high cost  of
miuing in certain localities where the
ore bodies are   especially   difficult  to
follow,   on   account of geological displacements,   bas   had   largely   to   do
with   the   non-suocess  of   more  than
one undertaking in this region ot  the
province.     Included   in the   district,
however,   are   two of the most important   mines   at   present   operated   in
Rritish Columbia,   one of   which,   the
Ymir,   has   this   year   crushed   some
05,000 tons of ore,   at a profit of about
$275,000,   while  a successful rehabilitation of the Hall Mines is  a  matter
for very sincere   congratulation.     In
the Ymir division of the distriot some
eight   mines   have  been actively productive   during   the year, the   output
from    these   sources    approximating
80,000 tons.     Compared with the 1900
returns   this   year's output lrom   the
district as a whole will show   only   a
moderate gain.     At   the   same  time
activity has been very   general;  more
"assessments"   have   been performed
by owners of mineral claims, in order
to fulfil the legal requirements,   than
ever   previously,   and   a   number   of
properties in a   more   advanced  stage
of  development   have been  equipped
with stamp batteries, mills aud  other
machinery, in readiness for the immediate  commencement   of   active   production.     The Ymir,   however, is the
only mine in the district  from the returns  of   whieh   during   1U01   profits
have been   distributed.     These  have
amounted  to   the   very   considerable
turn of $192,000. The production of oie
from the mine has been approximately
70,000   tons,   and   the Bhaft has  been
continued down to   a  depth  of  1,000
feet on the ore body.     The equipment
of the pioperty has been Increased   o_
the installation of a cyanide plnnt, at
a coBt of $50,000, by whioh   it   is   expected extraction costs  will   be   still
further   reduced,   to   the   extent    of
nearly a  dollar a   ton.     An   average
of 100 men havo been employed underground,   100 on the surface snd in the
mill, and for the last six   months  100
more In constructing a cyaniuc  plant.
GOOD PROSPECTS IN SLOCAN.
Becent Development Has Shown Existence of Large Ore Bodies.
J. .C Ryan, of Kaslo, who has just
been throngh the Slocan, and is interested in mines theie, waa in the city
yesterday, The Slocan.he says, shows
evidence of becoming a greater mining section than It has yet been. All
tht mines that havo been working are
showing up Urger bodies of ore than
ever before and some of them are
carrying out extensive plans of development. On the Payne, as an example,
all the tunnels have been run from
the north side of the mountain and
they are eight in number. From the
fifth level ��� winze is being sunk at a
point toward the south side of the
property, to meet the eighth tunnel.
The entire depth to be sunk was 350
feet but thc winze is now down 200
feet. They are also sinking on the
south part of the proporty and nre
down between 95 and 100 feet in oro
from three to five feet iu width and ol
richer grade than most that has been
taken from that mine.and it is getting
richer aH it is sunk upon. The Payue
mill i9 now under cuvjr and it is expected that it will be ready for operation about May.
To tho south of the Payne Is the
Payne Deep, in which Mr. Ryan is
interested. This property is situated
nearer the base of the mountain than
the Payne and near the railway track.
Mr. Ryan has made arrangements for
the operation of this group with a
large force of men in the spring. A
company will probably be incorporated to take it over.
A small force of men is working on
the Sobo, another mine which Mr.
Kyan haB a large share in, and some
ore ia being shipped. It Is his intention to put on a larger number of men
in tho Bprirg than he has now and a
company will likely be formed in connection with it.
On the Last Chance drifting f-oin
the long tuuuel continues along the
galena vein encountered at depth and
tbe results have been very satisfactory. The litigation wbich ha. been
commenced betweon lhe Last Chance
and tbe Noble Five promises to involve large interests and to be a rather
protracted one. This will be another
case of extra-lateral rights. The Last
Chance people allowed the Noble live
company to use their tunnel beyond
s point that they then considered was
outside their property, but after the
Noble Five had stopped work the Last
Chance had an eminent mining engineer report on their mine with the re>
suit that he reached the conclusion
that the vein tbe Noble Fivo had
been working had its apex in Last
Chance ground. As that mineral claim
was located under what is called the
old act the claim was made to the
whole vein and the ore loft sacked was
emptied out and shipped by the JLast
Chance. Both parties are getting
ready for the trial.
The American Boy is looking goo.l
and ore is being shipped from the No.
5 level. The Washington is also mak
ing a good showing and is shipping
ore steadily. The Dardanelles has
resumed work with a small force after
having being closed down for some
time. Tbe Reel Fox has struck the
vein from the south side. This tunnel
had beon run in following a stringer
but at a point in this tunnel a crosscut was run and in a short distance
the main vein was stuck. The Ivan-
hoe, owned by the Minnesota Silver
company, is now working steadily.
Tho reduction of the smelter rate
always means a little more returns
from the ore, although with the penalty for zinc the reduction ln many
cases is only about $3 a ton. The
I price for lead bas riaen about 25
cents per hundred pounds and thW
means something more. All things
considered Mr. Ryan looks forward
to increased activity in tho Slocan
mines thia summer.
The one copper proposition of the
Slocan, the True Blue, near Kaslo, ia
working ahead and gotting out ere.
All indications point to tnat becoming a very profitable mine in the near
future.

' New York, Feb. 25.���In a drizzling
rain and iu the presence of a brilliant
assemblage, amidst cheering and the
roar of cannon, the German emperor's j
new schooner yacht Meteor was
launched from Shooter*' Island today.
Unlike tlio weather, tho arrangement
were perfect and no untoward accident maired tbo occasion. The vessel
went graoefully into the water with
the Ameiican Hag flying out at the
tafl'rail. American and German
national airs were played and from
the scores cf cralt containing excursionists came enthusiastic cheering.
Miss Roosovelt wore a dreas of Bap-
phirt blue velvet, a large black hat,
trimmed with ostrich feathers and a
fur muff and boa.
The special train bearing the Preai-
dent from Washigton to the launching reached Jersey City at 6.40 a. m.
Tho prcaident remained on board until
tho arrival ot the prince's train a few
momenta after 8 o'clock. A cylinder
head on the engino of Prince nenry's
special blew out and the train wus
more than an hour lute in reaching
Jersey City. The accident occurred
shortly after leaving Baltimore. The
stalled train was pushed into Magolia
by a passenger train and there got a
uew engine.
Tho peraident and Prince Henry
arrived at Shootera' island at 9.30.
They were received with oheers by
those present and the presidential and
royal salutes, 22 guns each,were fired.
Shooters' island, in anticipation of
the arrival of tho distinguished visitors, presented the appearance this
morning of a military encampment
rather than the scene of an ev��nt of
international comity.
Two battalions of naval militia
reached the island at 8 o'olock and
were posted at various points between
the landing atage and the scene of tbe
launching. They were supplemented
later by a squad of petty officers and
oailors from the Hohenzollern, who,
though not under arms, presented a
military aspect. Polioe swarmed
everywhere over the little island and
out in the bay revenue cutters, naval
tags and police patrol boats manned
by naval militia and blue coBts darted
about to keep the excursion fleet baoa
of an imaginary line.
The party proceeded diiectly lrom
the ferry boat to the stand which had
been orected at the inahore end of tlie
ways on which the Meteor rested. The
president and prince with Mrs. and
Mias Roosevelt arrived on the platform at 10.22. The prince conduored
Miss Roosevelt to the small platform
immodately uudor the bow the boat.
On this platform at the time of the
launching were President Roosevelt,
Prince Henry, Mra. Roosevelt, Mibb
Roosevolt, the mayor of New York,
and Ambassador Von Hollenben.
Exactly at 10.30, Miss Roosevelt
broke tlio champagne bottlo, saying;
"In the name of the German Emperor
I christen thee, Meteor"
Guns roared, bands played and great
cheering lasted for several minutes.
The prince handed a bouquet to MiBS
Rossevolt and then raising his hat, in
a few words acknowledged the cheering of those on tbe main platform.
The launoh occurred without mishap.
The president's daughter lifted a
silver mounted hatchet and struck tbe
rope. It parted cleanly and down
came the weights, the wedges flew up
and out. The yacht trembled, started
forward and then slid slowly down
into the water to the cheers of tbe
distinguished gutherlng.
She took tho water safoly and
brought up in the middle of the Kill
Von Kull without aicident. Prince
Henry and Miss Roosevelt were thon
photographed. The prince presented
Miss Roosevelt witb a silken cap ribbon of the new yacht Meteor and she
wore It on her left arm as she stood
before the camera with the prinoo.
For   Brutal   Murder of
Wife Last June.
New York,Feb. 25.���Joseph Wilfred
Blondiu, charged with thc murder of
his wife, by cutting olT her head, at
Helmsford, near Boston, last June,
was arrested here today. He was
idortified by a detective from HoBton
while he was making application to
be examined for au engineer's license.
The prisoner admitted his identity
but ho professed to know nothing of
the killing of his wife,
Yesterday lllondin called at the
headquarters of the bureau of boiler
inspectors to apply for an engineer's
license. He evidently did not notice
his own picture posted on tbe wall
witn the usual announcment of reward for his apprehension. The aimi-
larity between tbe portrait and the
applicant caught the eye of a roundsman who slipped out and nutilied
Captain Titus of the detective bureau,
who directed him to toll tho man too
call again this morning nnd wired
Boston for a detective who could
identity the fugitive. When Blondin
returned this morning he was instantly identified by the Boston detective. At a signal four policemen
threw themselves on thc man and
secured him. In court the prisoner
was remanded until tomorrow to
await extradition papers.
At headquarters ne declared that he
had last seen his wife while he waa
seeing her off irom the station at
Boston. Hearing of the discovery of
her body, he feared,he said, he would
be accused of the murder and flod 11

A BANKFUL CRUSADE.
Tho cruaade commenced by the
Canadian Pacific railway company
early in January against the Crow's
Nest Southern lailway and the Crow's
Nest Coal company haa afforded the
people ol British Columbia no little
amusement. The object sought is
to secure for a company allied with
the Canadian Pacific 50,000 acres of
ooal land reserved by tbe government.
Tho crusade was begun early in
January under the direction of a
veteran journalist, who does this
claas of work for the C. P. R.
This individual arrived in the Kootenays early in January for the purpose
of looking into the situation and
gathering data for the propoganda
which he shortly afterwards began to
circulate in the shape of apecials, editorials and articles, puolished in the
organs of the corporation. These
were ln the shape of appeals to patriotism, aDd oontained statements that
when the Crow's Nest Southern was
cjmpleted all of the coke and coal produced in tbe Crow's Nest mines would
be hauled to the south of the line and
tho smelting industry would be
transferred from British Columbia to
the States. They appealed to the
people to prevent the carrying out of
the wicked schemes of Jim Hill
and the Crow's Nost Southern and oi
the Crow's Nest Coal company. As
a matter of fact the Americana do not
caro paritcularly for the silver-lead
orea of this section and have plaoed
an import duty on them in order to
keep them out, and so far as gold-
copper ores are concerned none of
tbem are exported except those whicb
go to Northport to a smelter owned by
the aame company that extracts tbe
oro from its mines at Rossland. Thsir
screeds appoared in papers from Vancouver to Cranbrook and uufortu-
nalely for the plans of the C. P. R.
some ot the typewritten articles were
handed to the editor of the Inland
Sentinel and as he held no brief from
the railway company he began an investigation which led to the discovery
that all of the specials, editorials,
etc., were evidently the work of the
bureau conducted by tho newspaper
writer in the employ of the C. P. B.
This exposur': showing as it did the
studied, syatomatic attempt to manufacture public opinion favorable to
tho 0. P. R. made the cruaade tho
laughing stock of the province, and
for a short time there was a cessation
of the attempt to mould public
opinion.
If at first you don't succeed try, try
again is evidently the motto of the
director of the crusade in the interest
of the railway company, and after
a short rest it was resumed. Then
tho organs began to harp in unison on a new string. MoBt of the
matter since published was evidently
sent from Montroal and oven the
Associated Press wires have been
prostituted to scrvn the purposes of the
Selfish end sought to be nttancd. The
organ* have been shouting in chorus
that the prices of eoke. whieh has been
reduced to $4 per ton, and coal,
which is sold by Ihe same company nt
Ferule for ,B per ton, are too high.
They huve also been declaring that
James J. Hill, of tho Gieat Northern
railway, is the owner of the control
of tho (row's Nest Coal company's
stock,   notwithstanding  the   official
statement of the Officers of tlio company that he owns only a three-tenths
interest. It has also been ulleged that
there was a shortage of ooke at some
of the llritish Columbia smelters, that
it was the fault of tbe Crow's Nest
Coal company, and was caused by
favoring the American reduction
plants. It is true that there rvus a
shortage nt one smelter and a short
time, owing to its failure to innke
necessary financial arrangements* but
just as scon aa this was done it was
supplied wilh ample fuel. The coal
company has a large surplus of both
coke and coal and would bo pleased to
receive additional orders for from 250
to 800 tons more of coke   per day from
British Columbia and would not have
the least trouble in filling them. The
mines of the company aro now por-
ducing about 2.500 tons of ooal per
day and the 63(1 coke ovens whioh It
has constructed are capable of producing about .SO tons of coke a day.
Canada only consumes about 20o tons
per day of the output of the Crow's
Nest Coal Co.'s ovens.
The fight mado by tbe C. P. R. has
been mercilessly waged and but little
regard has been paid to tne truth
wherever it wus thought a point could
bo made against either the Crow's
NeBt Southern railway or the Crow's
Nest Coal company. We have before
us an issue of tho Trail Creek News.
This paper is printed at Trail and Is
generally supposed to bo completely
under the domination of Trail smelter
management and ol the Canadian
Pacific railway. It usually has only
four pages but on Saturday last it
printed six pageB. Seventeen columns
out of 23 in the issue are devoted to
abuse of the Crow's Nest Coal company and Jim Hill. It reproduces
articles lrom the Canadian Mining
Review, the Nelson Tribune, tbe
Phoenix Pioneer, Rossland Evening
World, Vancouver Province, Grand
Forks News, Boundary Times, the
Rossland Miner and other papers
besides copying interviews with Paul
Johnson, J. B. Johnson and others.
Thia issue is not intended so much for
home circulation as it is for the use it
will be put to in the east in an
endeavor to make thc members of the
house of commons and others believe
that the various misrepresentations
contained in the several articles are as
true as gospel.
Some of the boards of trade in the
Kootenays and Yale have been persuaded by misrepresentations of the
situation in that portion of the press
which is friendly to th O.P.R. to paas
resolutions asking that the Associated
boards of trade which convenes in
Kaslo tomorrow to pass resolutions
directed against the Crow's Nest Coal
company. Sucb resolutions should
not be adopted. The Crow's Nest Coal
company has invested large sums of
money and is furnishing employment
at its mines to about 1,000 men. It is
a legitimate enterprise engage! in a
legitimate business. Its prices for
coal and coke arc not high when the
cost of labor, supplies and the royalty
paid to the government are considered.
Coke is sold for the price of production at present in oider to tide the
mining industry over a dull, period
caused by the low price of metals, and
all will admit that fl per ton ia a
reasonable prico for coal at the mines.
The Associated boards of trade should
not lend ItsHlf to so selfish a scheme
aa to assist the C.P.R. 10 an endeavor
to injure a company which has done
and is aoing so much for the province
as the Crow's Nest Coal company. It
would obviously be an injustice to
adopt such resolutions. The Associated boards of trade should be above
the domination of the C. P. R. and
should also be above lending itaelf
ot assist in carrying ont a discreditable and selfish scheme. The C. P. R.
should not be allowed to dominate
all of the interests of the interior of
British Columbia, which is evidently
its desiro.

MINING NEWS.     J
Z****t********************
Maik H. Gilliam came in yesterday
from the Bayonne mine situated np
Summit creek which flows into the
Kootenay river near the boundary
Early in December he took five men
to the mine and they have been working steadily ever since. Cabins have
been built and a tunnel started, ou
which good progress has been made.
Thsre is about six fet of snow on the
mountain, less than is usually tbe
case in that part ai the country. The
enow is now bard and Mr. Gilliam
had no difficulty in coming out on
snowshoes. lie leaveB for the mine
in two or tbree days and does not expect to return to tho city again till
about tho flrst of April. This mine,
which is a free milling proposition
with a very largo vein, is under bond
to S|.iil;iine people who intend to test
:)be pioperty thoroughly as soon as
tbey can. The operation of tho mind
would entail the erection of a stamp
mill to get in which wonld require
the construction of about 25 miles of
road which would ooit about (1,000
per mile to build.
At tho record office yesterday S.
Hawkina transferred a two-thirds
interest in the Horseshoe and Royal
Standard claims to J. L. Porter, consideration f25. A. Miner transferred
a one-third interest in the Alamo to

river to opposite Nelson would be a
great help. If this was done and a
feriy put in ihere would be a great
deal of traffic along it, especially in
summer. While this would not help
out any as to tbe bringing in of small
quantities of goeds it would at least
enable tbe rancher to drive to town
and deliver his goods himself instead
of having the produce sent through
threo or four different people, eacb of
whom had to get his share. Present
conditions mean that it is very difficult for the home grown goods to
compete with those from outside, tbe
freight charges more than counterbalancing tbe customs duties. The
ranchers living along tbe lake shore
hud all,with but one exception,agreed
to build the road through their land,
but nothing could bo hoped for until
this part was included in the Nelson
division. Great eftjrts are being made
by the coast fruitgrowers to obtain
entrance to tho Nelson and Kootemiy
markets and it seems a peculiar state
of things when this can be done and
the local growers be shut out.
Plums from Captain Busk's ranch
took Becond prize at the New Westminster exhibition last year in competition with the fruit of the coast
and many varietiea can be raised
around Nelson that for quality and
flavor cannot be surpassed anywhere.
With proper faoilitie, for shipping
this would no doubt add quite a little
business here, as it wonld not only
becoming the natural shipping point
bnt also the shopping centre for tbe
ranchers instead of. as now, that it is
not only cheaper but far easier to send
away for goods. Captain Busk spoke
a very good word for the courtesy and
obligingness of the steamer officials
who did everything in their power to
make things as easy and convenient as
possible, but, of course, as to times of
running aud costs of freight they had
to go by their timecard and schedule
of rates. Ranching here under proper
conditions, the captain thought,should
be both pleasant and profitable, bu1
at present it was suffering under some
very heavy and unnecessary   troubles.

MISCELLANEOUS
L
Inconveniences Hamper   Development
of Fruit Growing.
Captain C. W. Busk was  in tbe city
yesterday on business connected   v 1th
his ranch.     Tu a  Miner  reporter   be
stated that the prospects for  the ensuing season were good but   he   was  of
the opinion that the   ranchers on  the
other side of the   lake   were   laboring
under a good   many   moro  difficulties
than should be the case.    One trouble
is that they are included in the Slocan
electoral division   instead   of  that oi
Nelson, so that to vote in any election
it ia necessary to go all the way to Ain-
worth,     their   nearest   polling   place
while    their   interest    lies   in  tbis
division. Between Nelson and tbe out
let of the main lake the  population is
now about 150  people,   comprising  a
large number of children   but with no
school    within   reachable    distance.
Another  drawback these settlers bave
is that to send a small   paicel  to Nelson   or   to  have  one brought by  the
steamers    costs   35    cents   for   each
article, which is not   only   a   seriouB
inconvenience   but a most costly matter bb well.   There is no postoflioe and
to ooine to the city   to make  any purchases    means   that the rancher   will
have to stay in the   city   over   night.
Thus   in   shipping   eggs   or  fruit   a
separate shipping bill has to bo   made
out with  each   consignment,   making
small orders   unprofitable.   The  only
remedy for this the lailway  oompany
says is to wait until there   Is  enough
coming   to   one   person   or dealer  tc
make a large parcel,   bnt this in   the
oase  of eggs or fruits, such as strawberries, is very difficult.   The farmers
oan   raise   plenty   of  vegetables  and
other   food    supplies  which, if  they
could   be   handled direct to tbe  oity,
could   be   sold     at   most   reasonable
figures, bat  after passing through the
cost of teaming to the   wharf,   steamship   charges,    teaming   at   tha other
end, commission merchants percentage
and  retailer's profit   tho  share ot tbe
rancher has got down very low   while
the price to the oonstimor   has climbed
away up.   In illustration of this Captain Busk stated that last year he sold
$1,250  worth  of   fruit from his ranch
hut tne cost   of   picking   and   freight
alono amounted  to $900, although the
market is only  22  milea  away.     All
along   the   shoru   of the lake  is good
land   which   would support   quite   a
population, besides making the cost of
living in the city less if this difficulty
of transportation oould be overcome.
Asited as to whether he could suggest any remedy for this state of
affairs, Mr. Busk said that he thought
a   road   along   the  north  side of the
Results That Followed Advertising the
Attractions of Colorado.
Great interest is being taken generally in the proposed Tourists' association, and a meeting will probably be
called about the beginning of next
week to formally organize the movement. A gentleman stopping at one of
the city hotels in discussing the matter stated that in Colorado, where he
had come from, thoy felt the advantages of such associations in very
practical form. He said a mine was a
good thing to help in building np a
town, but that in Colorado it had
heen found that towns where there
were fair attractions fcr tourists and
these attractions were properly advertised that the results had been simply
marvellous. The benefits from an
influx of tourists was felt by all
classes of the community in a favorable way as it meant the spending of
large sums of money and that money
as a rule was distributed so tbat all
felt the good effects of it sooner or
later.
Tbe work of the association may
consist in issuing pamphlets to he
distributed in proper places, in bringing influences to bear on tbe government so tbat in the advertising literature Issued by it tins district may be
well represented ; and in gathering material suitable to be inserted in these
government reports and railway literature, suoh as half tones. These could
he furnished the government free, and
could also he sent to eastern papers
which might insert them. These are
but a tew of the ways in which the
association can work and at the start
many of them can bo used which will
cost bnt little but will, bo sufficient hi
demonstrate the practicability of the
scheme.
A gentleman who has done considerable hunting in the district and is
well acquainted with its resources
yesterday remarked that in advertising this district it would not be necessary to give anything but tho facts.
There would bo no advantage In publishing glowing reports ef anything
that wonld not come up to the descrip
tion. The fishing here cannot be
beaten and within a day's journey
many flrst class hunting resorts may
bu ruaabed. Among these might be

Milk Diet Tailed
Food that will actually lift one out
of a sijk bed is worth Knowing of.
A Chicago lady writes: "I want to
tell of a positive cure drape-Nuts
Food has made in a ease that was
considered almost hopeless
I know yon do not look upon Grape-
Nuts ns a medicine but, inasmuch as
tlie food certainly does build up worn
out systems, it seems to me it i��
closely allied to a tonic, Now about
the cure.
Last Spring a denr girl friend fell
ill aud was taken to one of the hospitals, but weeks before entering the
hospital she had been able to take
nothing but milk to nourish liar, all
other foods distressed tho stomach so
much tbat she tired to live on the
Willi alone.
The doctor in the hospital endeavored to keep her alive with broth and
otnor food, but her stomach refused to
retain anything but milK, and very
little of thut ut a time.
1 worked away at the resident
physician until he consented to my
taking her home to see what the
change would do for her. The poor
child was so very weak and nervous
and so frail that I felt quite dubious
about the outcome, nevertheless 1
knew enough about Grape-Nuts Food,
which 1 intended to give her, to feel
that it would bring her ont. After
she had rested a little while I warmed
somo milk and poured it over a table-
spoonfnl of Grape-Nuts and persuaded
Tier to take it. She did so with fear
and trembling, for she did not expect
to keep the food down. After giving
her the food I started to read her a
story,and although it was an inteiost-
ing one, she fell asleep. When she
linally awoke her lirst words were
'Did I really keep the Grape-Nuts?'
She had kept them but could
scarcely believe it. After two or three
hours I gave her a little more with the
same good result. Gradually and
Cautiously 1 increased the amount
until after a few days she was ublo to
eat a saucer full with no bad effects.
Sho lived on Grape-Nuts entirely
and gained strength so rapidly that
she soon recovered, and i"ii recommends Grape-Nuts to all her friends.
She says she would be Rind to have
anyone who is suffering from stomach
trouble write her, und she will tell
what Grape-Nuts Kood has done for
her, and how grateful she is to the
man who had the forethought to manufacture a food already digested so
that weak sto jachs can take it. Her
name is Lillie M. Gestabt, 4410
Wabash Avo, Chicago.
A clergyman of our acquaintance
cats a dish of GraueNuta before preparing his sermon. I asked him once
il he got inspiration from the food.
He said, 'Not only that, but it seem6
to clear my mind and make my
thirdlies and fourthlies come much
more quickly. Just think about one's
stomach not having to think about
digesting Grape-Nuts at all, they have
done the digesting themselves, aud all
we have to do is to tickle tho palate
by swallowing thom.' This same
gentleman assured mo that he would
rather dispense with any artiole of
f.ind on the table tban Grape-Nuts.
We cat tho food regularly with some
times a little fresh or canned fruit
added. We call it out 'tonic' My
husband joins in thanking you
heartily for its manufacture." Name

Mrs. Roberts, of Florence Park, is
bewailing the loss of 26 pigeons recently imported by a local firm from

After keeping the birds confined for a
few days they were liberated. The

possession of them and atter a ion

ABOUT CONSUMPTION.
Causes,   Preventatives   and   Approved
Methods of Treatment.
At the Baptist church   last   evening
tho third lecture in   the   series  Riven
under   the   auspices  of the   Florence
Crittenden society   was   delivered   by
ono of the citv doctors.     Tlie lecturer
Rave a   comprehensive   description   of
tho terrible ravages   made by tuberculosis throughout lhe world and showed
what  a   scourge   of   humanity   H  is
rapidly bt coming.      Il is slightly less
prevalent in the tiopics   than   in   the
temperate   zones,   he   said,   although
natives of the tropics when brought to
a colder country were very susceptible
to it.      In describing how    it   spread,
ho suid the means nf   infection   were:
First,   by   inhalation.     Through   the
indiscriminate cxpectoratlou of   those
suffering   from   the   disease,    in   the
streets  and public places,   the dust of
thestreets were laden with these germs
and     they   wero     inhaled       by   the
thousands;   secondly, by eating foods
inlected,   snoh   as   moat   and    milk,
althouRh infection by the latter means
is   denied   hy   such an expert as   Dr.
Koch.     However,   the speaker was of
the opinion that it was much bettor to
err on   the side of   safety, if   at  all.
and all   precautions should  be  taken
against the use ol milk in   whieh   the
germs might be present.     Thirdly, ln
washing   or   handling   clothes   of   a
patient.    Fourthly,  in   a wound from
an instrument on which   the germs of
the  disease   were   present.     Fifthly,
although     vory     rarely,     hereditary
disaese.
Predisposition to tlie disease was
not uncommon, but with proper care
this need never develop into the
disease. He showed how sunlight and
fresh air were two of the greatest foes
of the disease that existed, and played
the largest part in assisting nature to
throw off the disease after it had once
obtained a hold on the system.
Persons of all ages are liable to
take the disease, although between
the ages of )8 and 35 this disease is
tho most common. Women were
slightly more susceptible to it than
men, which was explained by the fact
that as a rule their occupation was of
a more sedentary nature.
He described the symptoms of the
disease at length, taking up both
galloping consumption and the chronic
form. The latter of these is by far
the m_.i common, and is wi.at. con
stitutes the yreat menace to society
today. The best way to prevent the
disease gaining a lodgment in the
system was by keeping the body in
shape to throw off the attacks. When
it was acquired, the patient should be
segregated irom healthy individuals
as much as possible and placed in
open air sanitaria. He gave a list
of these sanitariums in various parts
of Canada and the United States, and
read some statistics which showed
that, ot the patients who had entered
them from 40 to 00 pei cent were
cuied.
As to tho stamping out of the disease
one of the hardest fights would have
to be against promiscuous cxpectora
tion, which was mainly responsible
for the spread of tne disease. It
should be made a law tbat a list of all
patients suffering from tho disease
should be given to the medical officers
so that tho patients could be kept
nnder proper care and restrictions.
Consumptive children should not be
allowed to attend educational institutions and sit beside healthy children,
and expectoration except in properly
disinfected public spittoons should be
made an offence. Of course to carry
out tbis successfully public opinion
must be aioused to the great danger
to which all wore exposed. No one
hud assurance of immunity fiom th
disease. All were exposed to it and
each year saw the danger assuming
greater proportions. He desenbed the
various climutoa ot tho world as help
lul or otherwise in the treatment of
the disease, touching on tne agitation
that was being made in some places
where the climate was beneficial to
prevent consumptives being brought
there.

HAIR SOFT AS SILK.
New Scientific Treatment Kills   Dandruff Germs, and Makes Hair St ft.
It is an accepted fact, a proven fact,
that dandruff ia a Kcrm disease; and
it is also a demonstrated fact that
Newbro's Herpicide kills the dandruff
germ. Without dandruff faliing hail
will stop, and thin hair will thiclon.
Herpicide not only kills the dandruff
germ, but it also makes hair as soft
as silk. It is tho most delightful hair
dressing made. It cleanses the scalp
from dandruff and keeps it clean and
healthy. Itching and irritation are
instantly relieved, and permanently
cured. At all druggists. There's
nothing "just as good." Take no
substitute.    Ask for "Herpicide."
